Could someone explain to me what this Rep's response about a "clean CR" means?

From the point where the woman asks the question
and he starts "umm"ing & stuttering he's lost the
thread of the "Talking Points" and he reverts to
double-talk until he dismisses her & her question.

A funding bill with no strings attached.

Typical Republicans at work. Always avoiding the questions asked of them.

What made the above impromptu "News" Release
come un-done was asking an intelligent question
that immediately cut through the BS and left the
Talking-Points Puppet at a total loss for words.

If there were a way to cut-through the "Heartland's"
FOX TWENTYFOUR/SEVEN DISINFORMATION NETWORK
with a healthy dose of FACT-CHECKING it would be
like Turning On the Light For A Scared Kid to Prove
That There's Really NO MONSTER HIDING IN THE DARK.

It's long-since occurred to me that President Obama
doesn't feel obligated to explain every detail of
everything he does because he gives us more credit
for the ability to figure stuff out than we deserve.

He's long since realized that no matter what he says
or does, they're going to distort it beyond all reason,
...so rather than play their game of "Whack-A-Mole"
he simply moves forward to the next task-at-hand,
assuming we're smart enough to figure out their game.

...although I must admit that Gary's Charts Help A Good Deal! laugh

Heard Ran Paul on Meet the Press and he said they'd been offering CLEAN CR all week. When pressed he slipped that they were individual bills and not the whole enchilada. When called on this he said they were the same thing !! crazy He really could NOT justify it.

2 + 2 = 5 (because I say so!)

In the round table one Dem from the Senate pointed out they'd offered 17 attempts at conciliation & conference and the House was NOT interested. (cause they wanted to kill Obamacare)... but they ignore that.

Russert was born just around two months before my mother and died a month earlier. I never knew that about two people I have so much respect for.

Just upped myself on the learning curve for Rassert. I knew of him when I lived in the US but had fallen behind. I did not know he was a Robert Novak source for 30 years or that he was likely the journalistic source of the Valerie Plame outing.
