Expectations - Soapbox 12/8/14 After the runoff election in Louisiana which denied incumbent Democratic Senator, Mary Landrieu, a third term, it brings the new Senate to 54 Republicans and 46 Democrats, with the GOP holding the biggest lead in the House of Representatives since the Truman administration. What does this really mean in practical terms? Does it represent a reversal in the heavy-handed monomaniacal actions of Barack Obama, the one-man government who needs neither, House, Senate nor citizen's approval to pass and enforce legislation? Does it mean that Obamacare could either be repealed or at least modified into something beneficial that people can actually understand? Does it mean that the legislative bodies would finally come together and pass a sensible immigration bill that is aimed at all those who would become American citizens, and not just the instant democrat voter block now illegally crossing our southern border? Would it begin with a true, no nonsense closing of the border? Would it ...
Your Fox Brain room let you down. Florida still has a Democratic Senator, Bill Nelson, and FL is in the south
On Dec. 24, 2009, the Democratic-controlled Senate passed President Obama’s healthcare law with a filibuster-proof 60-vote majority, triggering a massive backlash that propelled Republicans to control of the House the following year. On the Senate side, going into this year's midterm elections, 25 senators who voted for Obamacare were already out or not going be part of the new Senate being sworn in next month. After Democratic losses on Nov. 4 and Saturday's defeat of Sen. Mary Landrieu, D-La., the number has risen to 30. In other words, half of the Senators who voted for Obamacare will not be part of the new Senate. To be sure, it isn’t fair to attribute all of the turnover in the chamber to Obamacare. In some cases — such as John Kerry leaving his seat to become secretary of state, or Robert Byrd passing away — Obamacare clearly had nothing to do with the departures. Additionally, some outgoing pro-Obamacare votes were replaced by new Democratic senators (although that tended to be the case in ...

Suck Todd spent his fifteen minutes tonight blaming the President for the GOP "wave". Funny how that works. Mark Pryor never once mentioned the President's name; Alison Grimes wouldn't admit having voted for the President, even though she was an Obama delegate to the last Democratic Convention; and both Mark Udall and Kay Hagen spent more time emphasizing their disagreements with the President than asserting their own legislative accomplishments. It seems rather odd that, to borrow an expression from Oscar Wilde, "the love that dare not speak its name" is somehow to blame for these defeats. The President can be held accountable for many things. However, he is not to blame for what happened today. And I'm pretty sure that more than one lame duck Democratic Senator is wishing he or she had accepted the White House's offer for a Presidential whistle-stop. When faced with an avalanche of negative campaign ads, Democratic politicians need to push back by owning their records and defending their leader. No ...

As the votes in the U.S. Senate were tallied yesterday, women and their families saw exactly who stood with them -- and who stood against them. And we cannot -- we will not -- forget this in November. Standing on the floor yesterday, I proudly saw every single Democratic Senator vote for the Not My Boss' Business Act, which restores a woman's right to the birth control benefit undermined by the Supreme Court's disastrous Hobby Lobby decision. But unfortunately, I also saw something else. One by one, all but three Republican Senators voted to give corporate CEOs the power to deny their employees coverage for birth control and other critical health care. It was shameful. We had 57 votes -- a clear majority. But it wasn't enough to break the Republican filibuster. You and I know there is only one way to break that filibuster and do right by women and their families: elect more Democrats to the Senate. Honestly, we don't have a minute to waste. The GOP and their corporate allies are spending millions of dolla ...

Go to the authentic Bundy Ranch page on FB and watch/listen to the town hall meeting in Bunkerville, and it is totally opposite that statement!

It's 50 year ago today with the tragic murder of President John F. Kennedy. Let me, however, dismiss a myth about him. Many of my fellow progressives hurl in on as this great liberal. Although I would've voted for him on election day 1960 as a lesser evil vote to Richard M. Nixon, the truth be known that JFK was not as liberal as some hooked on nostalgia made out to be. In the Democratic Primaries of 1960 along with US Senator John F. Kennedy of Massachusetts; there were three other people running including US Senator Lyndon B. Johnson of Texas, US Senator Stuart Symington of Missouri, and of course US Senator Hubert Humphrey of Minnesota. JFK was actually fairly conservative for a Democratic Senator from the northeast. Lyndon Johnson was a southern Democrat which would make me suspicious in the context of 1960 in spite of the fact that he would later sign the Civil Rights Act of 1964 into law. Stuart Symington was too corporate. In that primary contest, my support would naturally have gone to Hub ...
Haven't We All Figured Out Who Was involved with this already ? It's been 50 years. Look at how hard Our U.S. Government goes after Saddam Hussein and Osama Bin Laden when they try to Kill Our own U.S. Presidents. But With Kennedy, No Investigation Needed, Silence. Only People in The U.S. Government Could Give that Order at High Levels. On Top of that, The CIA and FBI have Wiretaps on every Senator and Congressman in D.C. so Hoover, Head of the FBI Would have known who was involved and either swept it under the door or was part of it. If it had been people outside our Own U.S. Government, they would have tracked them down and hunted them down relentlessly like Saddam Hussein and Osama Bin Laden. Unfortunately, Sen. Arlen Spectar died recently and with him went some of the Secrets since he was head of the Warren Commission when he first arrived in D.C..

A LONG AGO POST EXPLAINED THE ABSOLUTE IDIOCY OF “OBAMACARE” IN THIS WAY: OUR NATION’S HEALTH SYSTEM DID A SPLENDID JOB AT SERVING 6/7 (ABOUT 85%) OF ALL AMERICANS. THERE WERE ABOUT 15% WHO COULD NOT AFFORD GOOD HEALTH CARE. THAT DID NOT REQUIRE A COMPLETE OVERHAUL OF THE SYSTEM. IT REQUIRED ADDRESSING ONLY THE NEEDS OF THAT 15%. HMMM? When President Obama was selling his Affordable Care Act to the American people, he told us that under this new law, uninsured people would now have good quality health insurance. He also assured the other 85% of us that had a health care plan that we freely chose, we could keep the plan we had if we so desired. Since virtually every Democratic Senator and Democratic Congressperson (not one Republican voted for it) who voted to pass the law never read it before voting, the President assured each of them that their constituents would be generally in favor of the new law. The reality is that exactly the opposite is true. We are only about a month into the implementa ...

FUN FACT: In Georgia, there is a large possibility that they will elect a Democratic Senator to replace retiring Senator Saxby Chambliss (R-GA). Senator Chambliss will be retiring in 2014. The Republicans are fighting with four conservative candidates: Congressman Paul Broun (R), Congressman Jack Kingston (R), Congressman Phil Gingrey (R), and Former State Secretary of State Karen Handel (R). The Democrats are united with Michelle Nunn (D), a businesswoman and philanthropist, and daughter of Former Senator Sam Nunn (D-GA). Polls show Nunn leading her four potential opponents, though easily within margin of error. She leads Congressman Broun by 5-points, Congressman Gingrey in a tie, Secretary Handel by 2-points, and by Congressman Kingston by 2-points. All have about 4-point MOE. I just find this interesting, because it proves Georgia is becoming a more purple state. -- SDH
Soap Box and personal observation time! If you want to see our government in real action watch C-span today while the Congress or Senate are doing their thing. I watched "live" yesterday for about an hour. I saw a Democratic Senator comparing our situation to the "Hunger Games" reading it off his prepared speech while going psycho. Really? Screaming and almost foaming at the mouth with rage. Next was the Republican also spewing crazy crap and pointing blame everywhere. Again hollering and pointing consumed with rage. That's the best you can come up with? What I have come to realize in the short amount of time I watched is that the majority of these people are *** crazy/unfit to even deliver mail. I was mesmerized by the pure stupidity this group of lawmakers displayed. It was like watching a car wreck in slow motion. I saw two people during the whole hour act like responsible humans. One was a Democrat who was tired of the controversy and seemed to want the blame game to really end. No fluf ...

Senate passes S.744 amnesty, but grassroots opposition is on the way to blocking it in House - By Roy Beck What just happened: This afternoon, 68 Senators voted to pass S. 744.

The bad news: If eventually signed into law, this bill would threaten to knock millions of Americans out of the middle class by flooding their occupations with 33 million foreign citizens who are offered lifetime work permits over the next decade. Can you believe 68 U.S. Senators voted for that? The willingness of every single Democratic Senator and almost a third of Republicans to accept the corporate lobbyists' insistence that our country faces devastating labor shortages is disheartening to all of us who have fought so hard to protect the 20 million Americans who can't find a full-time job, and the millions more who have seen their real wages declining for decades during a worker surplus.

Taking away Dr. Time with patients. 72 were codes about turtles. Stepped on one, bit by one. Stumped your toe on one. Etc. a Democratic Senator from Michigan, Debbie S_ kept objecting. Nothing got accomplished. She should have been shot on the spot. I take my hat off to R Senator Tom Coburn for not going over and chocking her.

Let's hope that Chris Christie, governor of New Jersey, does the right thing and appoints a Republic Senator to replace Frank Lautenberg, a Deomocratic, who passed away yesterday at the age of 89, after a long and distibguished career. To do such would represent another part of the puzzle in enabling the Republicans to take a majority in 2014. This is crucial to derail some of Obamas aggregious ambitions such as "Obamacare". Christie wants The Republican nod for president in 2016, yet he's worried about his political future in New Jersey. I'llvsay this much, he wants to "flex his political muscle" in front of the camera after Hurricane Sandy , that's fine. He handled it well, but if he appoints a Democratic Senator, we'll find out that he's nothing more than a cowering political phony, who will NEVER STAND A CHANCE at getting the Republican nod and not just another useless cowering poljtical puppet.

Feinstein's Assault Weapons Ban All But Dead | // the wins again, this time with Democratic Senator's help
I'm confused...shouldn't the Dems and left as a whole be with Senator Paul on the drone issue? Or do civil liberties only matter when they can be used to attack evil Republicans? My guess is if the issue was brought up by a Democratic Senator, during a Republican administration, nothing would be more important. MSDNC would be going nuts with the issue. Civil liberties aren't a left/right political issue to me. Questioning the Attorney General about his legal opinions, regardless if the question deals with something that has happen as opposed to something that could happen, isn't a "stunt" or a theoretical "conspiracy theory." Throughout history, countless situations that probably sounded far-out at one time have come to be.
While I don't want any Democratic Senator to lose in 2014 to a Tea Party Republican, I would rather see activists pool their resources to help Ashley Judd win McConnel's seat in Kentucky than spend a dime on Democrats who cower and cave in to the Republicans out of fear of losing an election. Does anybody remember how well the "acting Republican to survive the next election" strategy worked for Blanche Lincoln in 2010? Hint: If you forgot who Blanche Lincoln is it is because she lost by twenty some points in 2010. (Keith)

Hmmm...If you're a Republican Senator of Hispanic descent who takes a drink of water during a SOTU rebuttal, you're figuratively scourged, yet if you're a Democratic Senator of Hispanic descent from NJ who happens to have a mounting wall of evidence strongly suggesting you use privileged connections to routinely travel to venues where you indulge in your preference for underage women (and therefore most likely support the reprehensible practice of human trafficking), this is an afterthought buried on page 12 (or the modern virtual equivalent of pg. 12). The bulk of modern media is no longer the 4th Estate; it is becoming more an institution of progressive propaganda.

Congrats to the citizens of Maryland keep up the efforts to fight for freedom for us ALL! 4,000 men and women descended upon the legislature to speak and rally and FORMALLY testify that they oppose new laws against the 2nd Amendment! === This is from the Maryland Shall Issue legislative group. "I will tell you that I have never seen anything like this. Not even during the 60s,” says an elder Democratic Senator. Ladies and gentlemen...we were heard. The Maryland Department of General Services estimates our attendance at 4,000. As of last count, more than 1,770 of you signed up to testify. The number may reach 2,200, according to a senior Senate Democrat. You literally broke the process. They have never seen so many people sign up to testify - most rallies end with people getting back on a bus and going home. We demanded to be heard. We stood in line for hours to get our name down. We did not back down. The look of astonishment was real, as Senators found hundreds of people still waiting to testify at 9 P ...
To All Senators and Representatives, in every state, on all levels favoring AWB type “gun-control” legislation, The following is one of the form letters many of you send out to constituents asking that you not expand or even keep current bans. In this way you politely dismiss them and their views. This letter was received from the Democratic Senator from Connecticut Christopher S. Murphy. Following each section will be a response contained in parentheses, this response is written by myself, Jesse Sweeney, of Manchester, CT. I will be sharing this response via social media, for those that view this, if you agree, please like and share. For the Senators and Representatives, know that each like and share is a person, a person who shares the same values and concurs with the ideas expressed in my responses. Thank you for contacting me about how we can prevent future gun tragedies. I appreciate your correspondence and hope that you find this response helpful. (Thanks to Sen. Murphy for at least respond ...
Key Democratic Senators Let’s start with the supposedly pro gun democratic Senators. There is one A+ rated Democratic Senator and seven A rated Democratic Senators. Max Baucus, he has an A+ rating from the NRA. He is from Montana a state with a strong gun culture. MT at the state level scores only two points on Brady Campaign’s score card. Which means it is tied for 47th for least restrictive gun laws. Importantly Baucus faces reelection in the coming election. Support of an AWB or similar would likely hurt his chances significantly in that race. Recent state wide partisan races have been close races. In 2012 Democratic Governor won a narrow race 49% to 47%. In the same election Mr. Romney carried the state. He seems an improbable yes vote. Two supposed “Pro gun” Democratic senators with A ratings from the NRA have openly made statements indicating they will support the legislation Manchin (D-WV) and Mark Warner (D-Va.) Donelly (IN) He was endorsed by the NRA in both 2008 and 2010. However, we are ...

Best quote I have heard in awhile. "Democrats are not very good in a gun fight". Spoken by a Democratic Senator about the strong likelihood that the assault weapons ban will fail. The Democrats are abandoning it like a smelly turd.
If any Democratic Senator votes against Chuck Hagel, that is a Senator who needs to be primaried.
"These Negroes, they're getting pretty uppity these days and that's a problem for us since they've got something now they never had before, the political pull to back up their uppityness. Now we've got to do something about this, we've got to give them a little something, just enough to quiet them down, not enough to make a difference. For if we don't move at all, then their allies will line up against us and there'll be no way of stopping them, we'll lose the filibuster and there'll be no way of putting a brake on all sorts of wild legislation. It'll be Reconstruction all over again." -Lyndon Baines Johnson, Democratic Senator, Texas This was in response to the signing of the 1957 Civil Rights Act by Republican President Dwight Eisenhower. Keep in mind, LBJ was a Democrat and never became a Republican. This is also the current policy of the National Democratic Party towards all minorities; enough to shut us up and make us happy not too much to make a difference.

AJC Mourns Passing of Senator Daniel Inouye December 17, 2012 -- New York -- AJC mourns the passing of Senator Daniel Inouye, one of the country’s most distinguished legislators. The chairman of the Senate Appropriations Committee was 88 years old. “For 50 years, Senator Inouye was one of the United States Senate’s most energetic advocates for Israel’s quest for peace and security, and the mutually beneficial U.S.-Israel relationship,” said AJC Executive Director David Harris. "More broadly, throughout his career, he stood tall and steadfast for the values of freedom, justice and compassion in our nation and around the world." A decorated and wounded World War II hero, Inouye’s appreciation for the Jewish state began nearly 60 years ago, when, in 1951, he sold Israel Bonds in his native Hawaii. During nine consecutive terms as a Democratic Senator from Hawaii, Inouye was a consistent supporter of foreign aid, and co-sponsored legislation to both support Israel and advance the cause of peace.

Was reading about this today: To pay for the Affordable Care Act, in Jan. 2013, medical devices will be subject to an excise tax. Newly elected Democratic Senator Elizabeth Warren (Mass.) has said, "...it also pushes companies of all sizes to cut back on research and development for life-saving products." As the mother of a daughter whose life was twice saved by such medical devices, I am very concerned. Looks like we are going back to the "dark ages" after all.

Ok, so it was not a landslide, right? 303 electoral votes and Florida and AZ still being counted. Maybe we get one more Democratic Senator out of AZ. And Obama will win Florida. But check this out. IN California, you know, the state of marijuana and *** and Hispanics? THIS WAS THE WORST DEFEAT FOR REPUBLICANS IN THE LAST 80 YEARS. Democrats will now have a supermajority (2/3) in both houses, the Assembly and the Senate. FIRST TIME IN THE LAST 80 years.
"An overlooked development from Montana on election night, a referendum to state that corporations don’t have constitutional rights has unofficially passed by a 75 percent to 25 percent margin." They also re-elected Democratic Senator Jon Tester. Would that Wyoming were only as red as Montana.
I actually almost feel bad for Karl Rove. He convinced a whole lotta rich people to invest billions of dollars into his super PAC's for the sole purpose of defeating Obama. His fallback plan was that he could at least win the Senate for the Republicans if that failed. Out of all the people he endorsed, though, there was only one person he spent more than a million dollars on who beat a democratic senator. And Romney also lost. Not only that, he lost in a landslide: 8/9 of the swing states went Obama. How do you reconsile that loss? Nobody is going to give him their money anymore. He is quite likely done politically. Outside of Fox, nobody is ever going to listen to him again. If he wasn't such an unlikeable person before this, I would have felt sorry for him.
Thom Hartmann's blog for today: It's Time To Tax The Rich That's the essence of what Vice President Joe Biden said following the Democrats' big wins on Election night. Speaking to a pool of reporters on Wednesday, Biden said Democrats clearly have a "mandate" on tax reform. And this issue of taxes will have to be settled soon, as Congress returns for its lame duck session next week and the so-called fiscal cliff looms at the end of the year. Democratic Senator Patty Murray, who was the architect of the Democrats election strategy in the Senate, argued that Democrats now have a much stronger hand after the election as they head into negotiations with Republicans over what to do about the expiring Bush tax cuts and automatic spending cuts coming down the pike. Murray told reports, "If we can't get a good deal-a balanced deal that calls on the wealthy to pay their fair share-then I will absolutely continue this debate into 2013." In other words, Democrats aren't caving this time. Unless the Republican Party ...

Yes, there are actually Democrats in Kentucky so eager to get rid of Senate Minority leader Mitch McConnell that they would support putting Ashley Judd up as the Democratic Senator for Kentucky.
It is located next to the exact spot where, according to legend, Julius Caesar uttered the immortal words "et tu, Brute?" But now, 2,000 years later, the ruined temples and fallen pillars of Rome’s Largo Argentina are caught up in a fresh, albeit rather less bloody, confrontation:
"Congratulations, Mitt, you won almost the entire Confederacy." -- Jon Stewart. "Our new Government is founded upon exactly the opposite ideas; its foundations are laid, its cornerstone rests, upon the great truth that the *** is not equal to the white man; that slavery, subordination to the superior race, is his natural and normal condition." Alexander Stephens, Vice President of the Confederacy, Democratic Senator from Mississippi. History FTW.

I now know why WI is called a "swing state". Probably the only State that voted for a conservative State Gov't. - Republican Governor, Republican Senate and Republican House and at the same time went Democratic in the Presidental race and elected a new Democratic Senator.
For those of you, who thought you understood Cheeseheads, try this! Gov. Walker (R) was elected with Republican majorities in both the State Assembly and the State Senate. [Wisconsin is bicameral.] The public sector unions mounted a massive recall complete with controversial demonstrations/protests. In the recall, Gov. Walker was re-elected with a bigger margin than he had in his first election. However, the State Senate recall races netted a gain of one for the Democrats. Thus, the State Senate became a Democratic majority. In Gov. Walker’s first two years, with Republican majorities, the Wisconsin budget went from a $3 BILLION deficit to a balanced budget with no tax increases. At one point, the Democratic state senators abdicated their offices to block legislative action. Now comes 2012. A Republican majority was returned to the State Senate. The State Assembly increased its Republican majority. Five of Eight Congressional Districts elected Republican candidates, BUT the state elected a Democ ...
Good Morning, I promised that I would follow the wishes and aspirations of Mr. Mitt Romney, for a united country working for the benefit of all, but when I actually hear the irrespossible senile remarks from Democratic Senator Harry Reid, Senate Majority Leader, on CBS Evening News, last night, with Scott Pelley, President Obama needs to put a muzzle on his junk yard dog, if he really truly wants cooperation from the Republicans. President Obama did not win an overwhelming Mandate. 49% of the country did not vote for him. Had the Low Hispanic Vote, approximately 27% been higher, as it was for Former President Bush and Senator John McCain, Mitt Romney would have won the election.

Unfreaking believable. If I hadn't been watching Fox off and on all day, I would have thought that Stewart/Colbert, were exaggerating and taking things out of context. O'Reilly has doubled down on the "47% story: He says that 50% of Americans have now shown that they feel entitled to "things" from the government. And as for the out of the closet racism, he points to the minority vote as evidence that we are no longer a "traditional America" and White men are a minority! What was his first clue? Did it take an election? Yeah, all those Mexicans and Blacks and *** up in North Dakota who elected Democratic senator and Governor are to blame and are awaitng their 40 acres and a mule!
