Republican Party & Barack Obama

The Republican Party is one of the two major contemporary political parties in the United States, along with the Democratic Party. Barack Hussein Obama II (born August 4, 1961) is the 44th and current President of the United States. 5.0/5

I'm not a Democrat, nor do I support Obama, per se---however I strongly believe that Barack Obama's legacy will reflect most poorly upon the Republican Party and their corrupt, self-interested, obstructionist agendas; cronyism; and blatant brinkmanship. The GOP is a direct threat to the welfare of our society; an enemy of progress; and in cahoots with the financers of--if not directly profiting from--the degradation of our natural environment and deterioration of our nation's infrastructure, healthcare, education, and means of food production. Not to mention the perpetuators of evergrowing military and prison industrial complexes, and beyond detrimental foreign policies. If you support Republicans you're a fool.
So John Boehner and the Republican Party are bringing a lawsuit against Barack Obama for taking executive actions (fewest among his last four predecessors, I believe) to actually accomplish something in Washington since an impotent Congress neglects its duties ... Yet I hear nothing from them regarding the Supreme Court's frightening encroachment on the liberties guaranteed by the Constitution in its Hobby Lobby decision. THIS is a slippery slope.
Mass shootings by white men and Right-wing domestic terrorism, have become events akin to the classic comedy Groundhog Day. Unfortunately, there is nothing humorous or funny about how white Right-wing domestic terrorists have shot up Jewish Community Centers, planted bombs, seen a spike in their numbers since the election of Barack Obama, are coddled and encouraged by the Fox News echo chamber and the Republican Party, and now--with Tea Party regalia, Nazi bonafides, yelling "this is a revolution! "--they kill three people during a brazen daylight attack on Sunday in Las Vegas, Nevada. The Right-wing echo chamber helped to spawn the mass shooters named "Jared" and "Amanda". Birtherism, an embrace of the neo-confederacy, a worshipful attitude towards the Confederate flag (i.e. "the American Swastika") and the CSA, along with an open embrace of anti-black affect and white racial resentment in a concerted effort to delegitimate the United States' first black president, are the "polite" face of American white ...
IMPORTANT MESSAGE FROM CHRIST TROUPIS! Posted by: C "Chris" Troupis The Spokesman article makes it appear that at the time I said I would support Wasden as our next Attorney General, I had full knowledge of Bistline's comments. When, as a true Conservative Republican, and in accordance with my statement in the publicly televised debate, I made my UNITY comments at the Capitol yesterday, I did not have any proof that Bistline and Wasden were in agreement on all important issues or that Bistline had made the statement that he wouldn't campaign because he was in agreement with Wasden on all but 'nominal' issues. Given the fact that he has now been endorsed by the Democrat representative of Eric Holder and Barack Obama in Idaho, who says he agrees with Wasden on everything but 'nominal' issues, I reserve the right to withdraw my 'endorsement' of Mr. Wasden. Also, it should be noted that my endorsement was for a "Republican Attorney General" who will protect Idaho's sovereignty and independence. If Mr. Wasden ...
The problem in Congress is very specific. We have a group of folks in the Republican Party who have taken over who are so ideologically rigid, who are so committed to an economic theory that says if folks at the top do very well then everybody else is somehow going to do well; who deny the science of climate change; who don’t think making investments in early childhood education makes sense; who have repeatedly blocked raising a minimum wage so if you work full-time in this country you’re not living in poverty; who scoff at the notion that we might have a problem with women not getting paid for doing the same work that men are doing. “The problem … is not that the Democrats are overly ideological – because the truth of the matter is, is that the Democrats in Congress have consistently been willing to compromise and reach out to the other side. There are no radical proposals coming out from the left.” -Barack Obama
"So when you hear a false equivalence that somehow, well, Congress is just broken, it's not true. What's broken right now is a Republican Party that repeatedly says no to proven, time-tested strategies to grow the economy, create more jobs, ensure fairness, open up opportunity to all people." -- President Barack Obama
Our nation will not survive much longer. Under the failed political leadership of both Bush-Cheney and Barack Obama, we have faced fifteen years of wars and economic breakdown. We have seen our Constitution shredded, a push for dictatorship, illegal wars, spying, torture, and Wall St. bailouts. Now, we are confronting a nuclear war with Russia and China due to the British-directed insanity of Obama and the Republican Party, and the cowardice and corruption of the Democrats.
The problem is, the Republican Party as a whole supports Russian dictator Vladimir Putin over their own President, Barack Obama.
Okay I have enough of the lies that democrats spread: Here are facts that are true and if you are smart enough you will see why I posted this today: Fact :We all remember Abraham Lincoln as the leader who saved our Union. Founder of the Republican Party. Does anyone know who said that "Yes our current president". "Barack Obama" Fact # 2 What would shock our Founding Fathers most about America in 2014: (A.) What would they say about a society that supported generation after generation of such families on income taxes that 10 percent of the population pays 70 percent of, and that nearly half the population doesn't pay at all. (B) Forcing Americans to buy health insurance via Obamacare as a condition of American citizenship. That is right you either get a fine or have your citizenship revoked. (C) In 2010, the average Net Worth of a senator was 13 million dollars while the Net Worth of the average American family was $77,300. Today it is even higher for a senator. (D)Having TSA agents putting their hands on ...
-- REPUBLICANS NOT USING THEIR NATURAL ADVANTAGE TO RECRUIT BLACK VOTERS -- Recently, former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice added her voice to those who have long been urging the Republican Party to reach out to black voters. Not only is that long overdue, what is also long overdue is putting some time – and, above all, some serious thought – into how to go about doing it. Too many Republicans seem to think that the way to “reach out” is to offer blacks and other minorities what the Democrats are offering them. Some have even suggested that the channels to use are organizations like the NAACP and black “leaders” like Jesse Jackson – that is, people tied irrevocably to the Democrats. Voters who want what the Democrats offer can get it from the Democrats. Why should they vote for Republicans who act like make-believe Democrats? Yet there are issues where Republicans have a big advantage over Democrats – if they will use that advantage. But an advantage that you don’t use might as well ...

Truth is, Racists in the Republican Party don't believe that Barack Obama even deserves to breathe same air as them, let alone be POTUS
Posted at 11:38 AM ET, 12/28/2012 Will less art and music in the classroom really help students soar academically? By Tyleah Hawkins Journalism students at Howard University’s school of communications were deeply engaged in this year’s presidential campaign as Barack Obama and Mitt Romney battled for the White House. The students wrote widely about the candidates and the issues. Some traveled to Ohio, a key battleground state, and wrote about classmates who canvassed voters there as volunteers for the Obama campaign. Others wrote about college students struggling to pay rising tuitions after their parents had lost jobs and homes to foreclosures. One student wrote about black Republicans who supported Romney and their status as double minorities – minorities within the Republican Party and among black voters who largely supported Obama. Throughout the year, students reported on the economic and social challenges that working people and poor communities were facing, issues that were being neglected b ...
Buchanan: Push for Amnesty Will Spell End of Boehner’s Speakership (News Max) – House Speaker John Boehner could get immigration reform through the House by splitting the Republican vote, but he’ll lose his speakership if he does, conservative commentator Pat Buchanan says. Buchanan also told radio talk show host Laura Ingraham on Wednesday that he predicts a “Balkan war” in the Republican Party if immigration reform pushes through, because President Barack Obama will have driven a “wedge right through the Republican Party.” Boehner is expected to unveil a brief outline of immigration principles at a three-day Republican Leadership retreat in Cambridge, Md., this week, including plans to strengthen border security and create new visas for foreign workers, and to offer a path to legalization — though not necessarily citizenship — for the nation’s 11 million to 12 million undocumented immigrants. FAX BLAST SPECIAL: NO AMNESTY for Illegals! Buchanan said he does not doubt that Boehner cou ...
2014 State of the Union Address, Tuesday, January 28, 2014 @ 9 p.m. ET and is followed by three rebuttals from the Republican party. POTUS Barack Obama is a Life Number 11, 4 Born and Pythagorean Expression 1. Tuesday is a Calendar Day 1 and Universal Day 9, it's Obama’s Personal Year 1, Personal Month 2 and Personal Day 3. It should be a rousing speech with shifts between insisting (1) and empathy (9) but afterwards, criticism.

On 30 November 2013, National Review bannered "Hillary Clinton's Lucrative Goldman Sachs Speaking Gigs," and reported that, "Hillary Clinton spoke at two separate Goldman Sachs events on the evenings of Thursday, October 24 and Tuesday October 29. ... Clinton's fee is about $200,000 per speech. ... Clinton also made visits to private-equity firms KKR in July, and the Carlyle Group in September." Ben White and Maggie Haberman issued a major story in Politico Magazine on 11 December 2013, "Lament of the Plutocrats," which described the sour attitude of Wall Street's titans toward almost all of the Democratic Party, and toward the social conservatives who voted in the Republican Party's primaries. These elite men found Barack Obama to be insufficiently deferential toward them in private, and even critical of them in public. They were especially outraged at his having slammed "fat cat bankers" in a 13 December 2009 "60 Minutes" interview with CBS' Steve Kroft. This public statement turned thes ...
With Respect ~ I am going to try and make this as short and sweet as possible. I have so many friends, some with children, some without. I try on a daily basis to demonstrate through presenting actual facts the need for all to be involved in the political process, as what we are facing right now is extremely important, and our involvement is critical if we want to shape our country to be the type of country that lives up to it's ideals. We've been facing a recalcitrant and obstructionist republican party bent on destroying Barack Obama since he has taken office. They show us over and over that they hate him, more they love the country. These republicans/ Tea Party types and some so-called progressive democrats seem only to find reasons to criticize him. They don't acknowledge his many accomplishments and are doing everything they can to undercut him. That means that they are either intentionally or inadvertently discouraging others to vote for him. And that means that they are increasing the chances of .. ...
Fun presidential facts. Number of presidents who attended the Gettysburg annual ceremony. 1. Of the 28 presidents since Abraham Lincoln, 27 did not attend. The sole exception was William H. Taft, who went to celebrate the 55th anniversary of the Republican Party. He went once in his four years in office. The anniversaries... 50th - Woodrow Wilson (D), had a war to fight and couldn't make it. No acknowledgement or visit. 75th - FDR (D), was coming out of depression and preparing for war, no acknowledgement or visit. 100th - JFK (D), was travelling to Dallas for a fundraiser for then Democrat John Connally (who would soon change parties) - He should have gone to Pennsylvania. 125th - Ronald Reagan - no acknowledgement. or visit. 150th - Barack Obama - an acknowledgement, but no visit to the site.

Dear Barack Obama, In states where the website works, Obamacare works too. The bottom line is the Republican Party's worst nightmare: Once Obamacare has been up and running for a while, it's going to be pretty popular. Please, just get the *** website working. Sincerely, Kevin Drum
David Plouffe, Barack Obama's adviser and former campaign manager, told host George Stephanopoulos on ABC News' This Week Sunday Morning that it would be an "impossibility" for the Republican Party to run against Obamacare in the 2014 midterm election because "millions of people will be signed up."
There is nothing so vicious as a rabid dog cornered with no place to run. It will strike out at anything and doesn't care what it hurts. Such is the wounded Republican Party today. Spewing ugliness in the form of untrue stories and hate speech, they will stop at nothing to discredit what they see as their enemies. Remember when they wanted to put off the individual mandate for one year back in September? Now, essentially, Barack Obama has asked Congress to do that (yes, people, it will take a vote of Congress to do it, though you thought he was doing it all alone). Well, now that he is on board, it has become a bad idea. Why do you think that is?

How Republicans Rig the Game Through gerrymandering, voter suppression and legislative tricks, the GOP has managed to hold on to power while more and more Americans reject their candidates and their ideas By Tim Dickinson Rolling Stone Magazine November 11, 2013 10:35 AM ET (This article is scheduled for publication in the November 21st issue of the magazine.) As the nation recovers from the Republican shutdown of government, the question Americans should be asking is not "Why did the GOP do that to us?" but "Why were they even relevant in the first place?" So dramatically have the demographic and electoral tides in this country turned against the Republican Party that, in a representative democracy worthy of the designation, the Grand Old Party should be watching from the sidelines and licking its wounds. Not only did Barack Obama win a second term in an electoral landslide in 2012, but he is also just the fourth president in a century to have won two elections with more than 50 percent of the popular vo ...
The Affordable Care Act’s big giveaway to stingy red states By Ezra Klein, Published: Over the coming weeks and months, there's going to be a new event in the Republican Party's ongoing "No, I'm the most anti-Obamacare!" contest: refusing to participate in the law's proposed Medicaid expansion. So far, the governors of Florida, South Carolina and Louisiana have already promised to do exactly that. Ignore them. The deal the Federal Government is offering states on Medicaid is too good to refuse. And that’s particularly true for the red states. If Mitt Romney loses the election and Republicans lose their chance to repeal the Affordable Care Act, they’re going to end up participating in the law. They can’t afford not to. Medicaid is jointly administered between states and the Federal Government, and the states are given considerable leeway to set eligibility rules. Texas covers only working adults up to 26 percent of the poverty line. The poverty line for an individual is $11,170. So, you could be a ...
Barack Obama is everything I hate about the Republican party.
"October was clearly a cruel month for both President Barack Obama and the Republicans, both of whom saw their images slump to new lows in Wall Street Journal/NBC News polling." "But hidden within the data is a more disturbing reality for the Republican Party. Put simply, Democrats are largely content with their own party, while distaste among Republicans for the GOP has grown exponentially this year."
More Of Obama’s Massive Lies October 11, 2013 by Chip Wood UPI There have been so many lies flooding out of Washington lately that’s it’s hard to keep up with them all, much less rebut them. But let’s tackle as many as we can today. And let’s start with a lulu that took place last week, when Barack Obama was interviewed on CNBC. John Harwood asked him about the appropriateness of some of the recent Presidential rhetoric. In his reply, Obama said, “I think it’s fair to say that during the course of my Presidency I have bent over backwards to work with the Republican Party, and have purposely kept my rhetoric down.” Can you believe it? The most divisive, vitriolic, partisan President we’ve had in years claims that he has “bent over backwards” to work with Republicans and that he’s actually “kept my rhetoric down.” Calling your opponents extortionists, arsonists, extremists and other choice epithets is apparently Obama’s idea of keeping his rhetoric down. After hearing his ludic ...
I think in a perfect world, the best and brightest people should be our leaders. In a representative government, we should elect great people to represent us. I think for the most part Democrats do this (certainly with glaring exceptions). We are the party of Franklin Roosevelt and John Kennedy and Lyndon Johnson and Jimmy Carter and the Clinton's and John Kerry and Barack Obama and Sam Rayburn and Barbara Jordan and many others. These are patriots. These are some of the most intelligent and effective and clear thinking citizens we have had. But who do the Republicans give us? George Bush. Ted Cruz. Paul Broun. Jim Demint. Rand Paul. Michelle Bachman. Rick Perry. John Boehner. Non McDonnell. These are not smart people. These are some of the worst people among us. The fear and hate in the Republican Party reward ignorance and anger, not intelligence and common sense. I hope one day soon we wash the stain of the Republicans off this country and have once again an intelligent and prosperous country with a sm ...

RINOS WAVE THE White Flag TO OBAMA AND GIVE HIM A BLANK CHECK: As the sun rises over Washington DC today, in the brisk Autumn breeze, the Republican Party’s freshly laundered White Flag of surrender flies again. The Republican Leadership, John Boehner, Mitch Mcconnell, Paul Ryan and many of the other usual suspects are busy working out a deal which amounts to little more than the unconditional surrender of the Republican Party to Barack Obama. While the GOP was allegedly fighting this shutdown over a year delay in the implementation of Obamacare, they will not get that in the final deal. In fact, the GOP will get nothing. Obamacare will be fully funded. The Debt Ceiling will be raised. Spending will increase. It will be business is usual in Washington. While the GOP leadership is unwilling to fight Barack Obama and the Democrats, fighting conservatives is another matter. Two of the Kings of the RINO Establishment, former New Hampshire Governor John Sununu and former Mississippi Governor and RNC Cha ...
Public Blames Republicans for Crisis "Americans have come to hold a harshly negative view of the Republican Party during the government shutdown, giving the GOP a far larger share of the blame for a political brawl that many believe is harming the economy, a new Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll found. First Read: "By a 22-point margin (53 percent to 31 percent), the public blames the Republican Party more for the shutdown than President Barack Obama - a wider margin of blame for the GOP than the party received during the poll during the last shutdown in 1995-96." "Just 24 percent of respondents have a favorable opinion about the GOP, and only 21 percent have a favorable view of the Tea Party, which are both at all-time lows in the history of poll."
Hard-left MSNBC host Ed Schultz on Monday took his assault on the Republican Party to a new level, declaring that John Boehner is a "traitor" to America for not giving in to Barack Obama on the government shutdown.
Americans blamed Republicans over President Barack Obama for the shutdown by a margin of 22 percentage points, with 53 percent saying the GOP deserved more blame. Approval ratings for the Republican Party and the Tea Party were at 24 percent and 21 percent respectively -- both record lows as measured by NBC/WSJ. Keep digging the hole you ignorant *** !! :-) Matt
Barack Obama has done it again. He has gone on the attack against the Tea Party. During his speech about the non-existent negotiations regarding the partial government shutdown. I'm not going to do it until the more extreme parts of the Republican Party stop forcing John Boehner to issue threats about our economy. That's right. You're extreme. Ted Cruz is extreme. Mike Lee is extreme. Rand Paul is extreme. What makes you an extremist in the eyes of Barack Obama? You support and stand for the Constitution. How disgusting is that! The President of the United States despises those who support the Constitution. And if Barack Obama wants to find an extremist, he need only look in the mirror. Imagine, we have a president who sought out the Marxist professors and who taught the 'Rules for Radicals', a book dedicated to Lucifer, tactics of Saul Alinksy! And he wants to call us radicals? We must fight against the extreme radical Marxist Barack Obama and his minions who are determined to destroy this nation.
How did the Republican Party become a kamikaze club guided by a small handful of hostage-taking radicals *** bent on causing chaos to ruin the presidency of Barack Obama? It wasn't by the design of House Speaker John Boehner and the GOP congressional leadership. This came about because a small number of Tea Party back-benchers in the House and Senate, assisted by a well-financed network of right-wing organizations (some funded by the billionaire Koch brothers), pushed an issue that was red meat for the GOP's base—defunding Obamacare—and managed to hijack the party (even more than the Tea Party already had). Let's look at how the Boehner-led GOPers began this latest round of political battle. After Obama won reelection and the Democrats picked up 11 seats in the House last November, Boehner appeared ready to accept political reality. He observed, It's pretty clear that the president was re-elected. Obamacare is the law of the land. If we were to put Obamacare into the CR [the bill funding the governme ...
Since the 2012 Presidential Election, I have heard some seriously outrageous claims about the status of American politics, none of which favorable to the future of the Republican Party. From the left, the oft-made claim that demographic changes have finally overwhelmed what has long been an increasingly shrinking share of a white Republican-dominated electorate, seems to be a favorite. On the right, the embarrassingly simple claim that an ever-expanding welfare state has finally produced more “takers than makers” who vote only to keep their government assistance, is just as often stated. I, however, have pushed back on these claims with a little something that neither the right or left seems to care much about – facts. Without having to re-litigate the Census Bureau report, the bottom line was that a “record turnout” among Hispanic voters did not reelect Barack Obama. In fact, following their usual pattern, Hispanics again voted at a lower rate than the prior election. Sadly, because they could ...

How the Pentagon made certain their contractors -- not their employees -- wouldn't miss out. I don't mind astronomical telescope mirrors -- if used to watch stars and steroids. : Gordon Campbell on the shutdown of the US government by Tea Party terrorists October 4th, 2013 Surely, isn’t it time for the Republican Party to be designated as a terrorist organisation? Their current shutdown of the Federal Government has been bad enough, but the jihad these fanatics have chosen to wage against the Obama administration will shortly spill over into a conflict over the debt ceiling that threatens serious damage to the entire global economy. Organisations have seen their assets frozen and had travel bans imposed on their leadership for doing far less than what the Republican Party is currently doing on Capitol Hill. The ransom that the militant Tea Party faction of the Republicans in Congress were demanding (pre-shutdown) was that President Barack Obama had to postpone the enactment of his health care plan .. ...
In Today's News October 1, 2013 Today we were faced with the divorce of the Republican Party, and President Barack Obama. This is a brutal divorce, as in the cases of other children that has been killed by one of their parents in recent news. We see the same happening with the people who where put in office to protect us, using their children in a sacrificial pawning game. Seeing who will give in, and get their own way. Even to the point of slaughtering those they say they care about, just to see the other moan! Feeding off of evil power of destruction of many that did really love them enough to put them where they are at, thinking they had their backs...I see they did, but with a knife to the innocent's throats!
MSNBC host Chris Matthews predicted with confidence on Wednesday that Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) will be the Republican Party's presidential nominee in 2016.

Just over a year ago CONSERVATIVE radio host Laura Ingraham famously said “If you can’t beat Barack Obama with this record, then shut down the party, shut it down, start new, with new people….” It still stands as the best idea ever from a CONSERVATIVE radio host. It appears we are watching the second step in the shutdown of the Republican Party.
Before everyone gets all worked up & erroneously blaming the Republican Party for the government shutdown, let us not forget the words of President Obama's former Chief Of Staff: "You never let a serious crisis go to waste. And what I mean by that it's an opportunity to do things you think you could not do before." -- Rahm Emanuel, Mayor of Chicago. Hmmm, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid providing a liberal Democratic made crisis on behalf of Barack Obama by rejecting several Republican House passed Continuing Resolutions, oh perish the thought. ;)
A letter from the Republican Party. What they claim this government shutdown is about: "Last night, Barack Obama and Congressional Democrats chose to shut down the government rather than protect Americans from the failures of ObamaCare. They're hoping Republicans will roll over. But we can't afford to let that happen. As the Federal Government was shutting down, the new ObamaCare Exchanges were stumbling out of the gate due to technical meltdowns. Many Americans seeking coverage were left high and dry. Democrats know ObamaCare is a train wreck, which is why they have delayed parts of the law for the privileged few. Republicans believe all Americans deserve to be protected from ObamaCare. This is a critical time for conservatives. We must remain united to defeat ObamaCare and end the Democrat Shutdown." From GOP.COM...
Last political post on this page till next birthday: you know things are f***d up when I'm in total agreement with Congressman Peter King!

I realize most Americans like Bill Clinton and he is a very personable man, but he is also a snake. The financial position we are in now are because of the Commodity Futures Modernization Act of 2000, along with the Financial Services Modernization Act of 1999. They were largely to blame for the housing and credit bubbles that eventually led to the 2008 financial collapse. Clinton, contrary to what he told Americans was a strong proponent of both bills as was an overwhelming majority of Democrats. But as the financial markets along with the economy collapsed in 2008, the media withheld this inconvenient truth from the public opting instead to blame it all on President George W. Bush and the Republican Party. This assisted Barack Obama's ascendancy to the White House. Now, as the Clintons try to get themselves back into the Oval Office, they most certainly don't want the truth about their involvement in that financial crisis to be made public. As such, you can understand why they wouldn't want the public t ...
Wow !! President Barack Obama continuously, to keep the American people informed. The Republican Party continuously threatens a government shut down, we as taxpayers are continuously paying our taxes and the Republican Party if not stepping up appropriately to pay our bills to the creditors to keep our government open . This is in the hands of a very few, one being House Speaker John Boehner from my understanding this is about the Tea Party representatives, to keep them happy we are dealing with American peoples lives and lively hood American people should be outraged over this tactic . We are the Voters .
I'd rather be doing something else right now.  In fact, I'd rather be putting this in a video than in a Note.  But at the moment I don't really have the energy to record a new soundtrack and put pictures together.   I might still make a video that comes at these subjects from the standpoint of history---later.  But for now I'm just going to speak from some of my own personal research and experiences. People who haven't been following current events all that closely might assume that the looming government shutdown that is being talked about in the United States stems only from the Republican Party's refusal to have anything to do with the Affordable Care Act, known colloquially as Obamacare.  That's not quite true.  It also stems with the Republican Party's refusal to negotiate with the President on raising the nation's debt ceiling.   After all, if there's anything that the modern GOP hates more than Barack Obama (maybe?), it's a load of debt that they can't come to an agreement on how t ...
1) “First of all, give an honor to God and our lord and savior Barack Obama. Barack Obama.” — Jamie Foxx 2) “(The Tea Party’s) stated policy, publicly stated, is to do whatever it takes to see to it that Obama only serves one term. What underlines that? ‘Screw the country. We’re going to whatever we can to get this black man outta here.’ …It is a racist thing….(that) just shows the weak, dark, underside of America. We’re supposed to be better than that.” — Morgan Freeman 3) Herman Cain is probably well-liked by some of the Republicans because it hides the racist elements of the Republican Party, conservative movement and Tea Party Movement. People like Karl Rove like to keep the racism very covert and so Herman Cain provides this great opportunity so he can say, ‘Look: This is not a racist anti-immigrant, anti-female, anti *** movement. Look: We have a black man.’ And look he’s polling well and he won a straw poll. — Janeane Garofalo 4) “If I got (Condi Rice) on camera, ...
A NOTE ON President Barack Obama People tend to think that President, Brother, Barack Obama can do whatever he wants to, whenever he want to, however he wants to. That is a total misunderstanding of the complexities involved is the Executive branch of President of the United States of America. It is so ironic that with the signing of an Executive Order he can launch a military attack anywhere in the world, but can't assure that hundreds of thousands of children and families have a roof over their heads and don't go to bed hungry anywhere within the boarders of the United States or the world. It is also pathetic that the Republican Party would fully support the former and oppose the latter as being a form of unnecessary government welfare. It also stands to basic deductive reasoning that those whom are a link in the chain of constructing and protecting the interest of Capitalism and the Military Industrial Complex, and all their support systems and networks, have been very busy manipulating events to a ...
Whoa!!! Did anybody hear what Sen. Rand Paul said about black kids caught with drugs compared to white kids? And what he said about how it would have been a tragedy for America not to experience Barack Obama as the President of the United States? What are his odds of being re-elected as Senator of the Republican Party?
Huffington Post: Marty Kaplan: David Brooks' Own Private Egypt." "This sort of person" is a casting call for the Republican Party. People like: •Tex. Rep. Louie Gohmert, who knows, knows, knows that Indonesian-born Barack Obama has "gone to war with Christianity"; that the Department of Homeland Security is stockpiling arms to suppress Americans; that the Boy Scouts will answer to God for allowing *** members; that America's "openly rebelling, even from the top, against God's teachings in the Bible" is a "sign," a "milestone," that our nation is headed toward the end of our existence. •Ga.

Failing history Posted by Judson Phillips on July 6, 2013 at 7:49am in Tea Party Nation Forum View Discussions It is obvious the Republican Party leadership failed history classes every time they took them. They did not simply make an “F,” they made an “F minus.” When the history of this era is written, the authors will wonder how the Republican Leadership of this country could have been such fools. What are the Republicans doing? Wes Pruden, the Editor Emeritus of the Washington Times today called Obamacare, “A fiasco for the ages.” If anything, he has a gift for understatement. Barack Obama and the far-left Democrats continue to follow through with Obamacare with the same zeal as Stalin’s collectivization of the Russian peasants in the 1930’s. They don’t care about the consequences. Their idea will work or all will suffer. Smart people are betting on the latter. The few remaining sane Democrats, and they are a group that is clearly on the endangered species list, are sounding the ...
I'm not Democrat nor a Republican, but I know for a fact this is just some immature "Republican Party" drama just to TRY to have him impeached. The Republicans are constantly having something to say just because he's the 1st African-American Democrat president to lead our country. Republican's need a history lesson before they go running their mouth about some things they want to believe is not even true. "Just Saying" Yes we all have our opinion's in politics but that's just nonsense to say he doesn't believe in the "HOLY BIBLE" Here's the history lesson.Obama was baptized into the United Church of Christ (UCC) denomination and formally joined it in 1988. He left the UCC in 2008 because of the Rev. Jeremiah Wright controversy. He now worships with a Southern Baptist pastor at Camp David. (--Barack Obama Quoted --) I'm a Christian by choice. My family didn't – frankly, they weren't folks who went to church every week. And my mother was one of the most spiritual people I knew, but she didn't raise me in ...
Palm Beach County Republican Party meeting degenerates into brawl Janeen Capizola Fireworks erupted early at the anxiously awaited Palm Beach County Republican Executive Committee meeting Wednesday night, when Chairman Ira Sabin took the microphone after days under fire for failing to raise the funds needed to keep the party afloat. A blame game erupted between Sabin and former chairman of the party Sid Dinerstein, with Dinerstein saying he wasn’t going to be the George Bush to Sabin’s Barack Obama. Sabin’s daughter became so enraged, she screamed at Dinerstein to “shut up,” which prompted Sabin to publicly chastise his adult daughter. And, in an example of why the party may be out of money, a longtime big donor vowed to never give the party another dime while Sabin was chairman. The cash-strapped Republican Party of Palm Beach County had abruptly closed its West Palm Beach office days earlier, laying off its two full-time employees, Political Director Mark Hoch and Executive Director Cathy Bran ...
Republican Minority leader, Mitch Mcconnell said, "The single most important thing we want to achieve is for President Obama to be a one-term president," according to The Atlanta Journal Constitution. Like a spoiled child holding their breath until they get their way, GOP leader Senator Mitch McConnell does not feel that representing and serving the American people should be the goal of the Republican Party. Instead, the leader of the party of "No" has finally come out and said what many have suspected since Barack Obama won the White House. McConnell's statement explains the GOP obstructionism that has crippled efforts to revive the economy, appoint leaders to key administrative positions, and move forward with new legislation. Since the GOP took the majority in Congress in the November 2nd elections, much of their rhetoric has been focused on moving backward. Repealing health care reform tops some Republicans' lists. With hyperinflation threatening on the horizon, unemployment still at the heart of Amer ...
It was a race of certainty on both sides. Even on Election Day, Mitt Romney's campaign advisers were convinced Romney would be elected president, while Barack Obama's team was equally resolute: he would reclaim the White House. How was the Republican Party so misguided? Where did the party go wro...
Heather Marie Holocher Peachez Duncan Texas Congressman Ron Paul would win a presidential race against incumbent Barack Obama, according to a tracking poll released Monday by Rasmussen Reports. According to polling figures published Monday by Rasmussen, a hypothetical two-person contest between President Obama and Republican Party hopeful Ron Paul would yield a victory for the Texas congressman. The statistics released by the group this week put Paul as the favorite over the current commander in chief by two percentage points, a 43-to-41 percent win, reports the agency. Although Representative Paul has placed close to passing Obama in past polls, this marks the first time in a Rasmussen report that the congressman has statistically proven himself as the winner when pitted right against the president. Recent polling from Rasmussen also suggests that the only other candidate that could be considered the victor in a make-believe match-up with Obama right now would be former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney ...
Ann Romney being interviewed by Gloria Borger; states that if her husband Mitt were to have won the Presidency, he would being doing a better job than what our President and Commander in Chief, Barack Obama is doing. Ummm? Reality check; if her husband Mitt Romney had done a better job during the last Presidential Election, maybe he could have won? Case in point; they tried to use her personal health issues to garner votes, yet her husband and the Republican Party were trying to LESSEN women's health programs. Mitt Romney blames Hurricane Sandy for giving Obama an edge, because the storm allowed Obama to be Presidential. Wrong again, case in point one week before Sandy Mitt Romney and the Republicans were campaigning to disband FEMA. This back fired on them, not Obama being able to be presidential. The reason the Republicans lost is simply that more people voted Democrat.

Survey Finds GOP: "Brutal, Closed-Minded and Racist" The College Republican National Committee has commissioned a report examining the party's dim prospects with millennials, who gave Barack Obama a five-million-vote edge over Mitt Romney in the 2012 election. The focus-group reviews are in - and they are brutal. Here are the 10 most scathing quotes from the admirably frank report, titled "Grand Old Party of a Brand New Generation." 1. "Young 'winnable' Obama voters were asked to say what words came to mind when they heard 'Republican Party.' The responses were brutal: closed-minded, racist, rigid, old-fashioned." 2. "Asked which words least described the GOP, respondents gravitated toward 'open-minded' (35%), 'tolerant' (25%), 'caring' (22%), and 'cooperative' (21%)." 3. "For the GOP, being thought of as closed-minded is hardly a good thing. But if the GOP is thought of as the 'stupid party,' it may as well be the kiss of death." 4. "A Hispanic voter in the San Diego focus group harshly laid out how she ...
Do you know; what I find so strange with the United States Government in how it's ran, the most? How Justice of the Peace; can tell people, "ignorance isn't an excuse." But the country is in a deficit {long before President Barack Obama came into office} plus the Government Officials {let's just say, the Republican Party} won't offer it's own citizens affordable education; so that the citizens really wouldn't have any excuses and would be better informed about the laws in America and parts of the Government like to tell us; that the citizens are wasteful with spending of their own money when their own household fall into debt, but our own Government Officials refuse to watch their own wasteful spending of our taxes dollars and continue to keep raising our taxes payments {the Government that runs us; are just toughening laws on us to cover their wasteful spending themselves and these elected officials haven't even given; it's own lower working force a raise, but they can and have voted for the executive br ...
It must be that I'm experiencing an identity crisis or something like that... I watch the heroic Rand Paul do what has to be done in order to by-pass the "talking heads" of the mainstream media "filter" the truth out of what passes for the news... I decide that he has shown us all the way to put the sterilizing spot-light on Obama and his henchmen and their anti-American and unconstitutional policies... Then I watch as his "fellow Republicans" try to pull the rug out from under his feet (as if HE made some ill-advised stunt that "...hurts the American people...")... And I find myself having to admit in my mind and soul that "my generation" of politicians have long since sold out and that the ONLY way to save this country is to drop them like a sack of trash and to begin supporting the "younger generation" of leaders arising within the Republican Party... Sadly, when it comes to guys like Sen. John Mccain and Sen. Lindsey Graham, there's a lot more than "wisdom" that comes with age... and I don't like wh . ...
Democratic Congressman Explodes At Fox News' Sean Hannity And Calls Him 'Immoral' And A Liar Democratic Rep. Keith Ellison and Fox News host Sean Hannity battled in a contentious interview Tuesday night, which ended in the exchange being cut short after Ellison called Hannity a liar and "immoral." Ellison and Hannity got contentious on the subject of the sequester. Ellison repeatedly questioned Hannity's journalistic ethics, calling him a "shill for the Republican Party" and the "worst excuse for a journalist I've ever seen." Hannity fired back, telling Ellison that he was not a registered Republican, but rather a "registered conservative." The two argued over the impending cuts of the sequester, which Hannity said was the fault of President Barack Obama and Democrats. Ellison tried to shift back blame to Republicans, saying the Budget Control Act was the work of Republicans bartering over raising the debt ceiling. Much of the talk, though, devolved into indecipherable crosstalk. But their talk got excep ...

There too many political parties interest in the United States to hold Barack Obama accountable. 1. Democratic Party leaders are not holding Barack Obama accountable vis-a-vis the crisis in the Congo due to a few things. a. Obama may not come to their fundraisers or other party leaders may not support their campaigns for calling out a democratic president b. They may not get appointments to key offices opened for democrats or nominated for positions c. They may not be invited to the White House or other Democratic Party events e. They may lose party support for giving Republicans something to talk about to attack a democratic president 2. Republican Party leaders can't wait for Obama to mess up so they can use the Congo as a way to holding a Democratic president accountable due to a few things ...
The Republican Obsession By Patrick J. Buchanan February 06, 2013 "Information Clearing House" - If last week's hearing for Chuck Hagel raised questions about his capacity to be secretary of defense, the show trial conducted by his inquisitors on the tribunal raised questions about the GOP. Is the Republican Party, as currently constituted, even capable of conducting a foreign policy befitting a world power? Or has it learned nothing and forgotten nothing since George W. Bush went home and the nation rejected John Mccain for Barack Obama? Consider the great foreign issues on the front burner today. Will the Japan-China clash over islets in the South China Sea, now involving warplanes and warships circling each other, lead to a shooting war that could, because of our security treaty with Japan, drag in the United States? Is China an economic rival and trade partner? Or is Beijing seeking strategic and military hegemony in East Asia and the Western Pacific? Is engagement or containment of this emerging sup ...
Reagan Would Be 102 - and Against Obama's Drone Policy Will Bunch's picture Will Bunch Article Tools E-mail Print Comments (1) Barack Obama | Human Rights | Ronald Reagan by Will Bunch | February 8, 2013 - 10:29am Ronald Reagan was born on this date 102 years ago today. He died in June 2004 -- but I've written quite a bit about him in the intervening years, especially while and after I wrote a 2009 book about Reagan and his legacy called "Tear Down This Myth." Why focus so much on a man who left the Oval Office 24 years, who died nearly eight years ago? The main and most important reason is that the modern Republican Party has warped Reagan's legacy for its own 21st century political purposes -- twisting his actual views and his official actions on everything from war to taxes into a right-wing vision that the Gipper himself probably wouldn't recognize. So it's useful from time to time to remind ourselves who Ronald Reagan really was -- and wasn't -- in order to beat back dumb ideas in the present. Beyond ...
Fox News aired in 2008 an excellent series of explanations why it's not reasonable to blame a president for high gas prices. And the point Media Matters for America is correctly making is that Republicans efforts to blame Barack Obama for today's situation are nonsense. THIS is a perfect video to be shared on the Republican Party candidates pages... Don't they believe in what FOX says? Internet NEVER forgets contrary to GOP voters...

Joe Scarborough: GOP Needs Colin Powell If They Want To ‘Win National Elections’ : "Gen. Colin Powell has frustrated Republicans in recent years. He endorsed Barack Obama in 2008 and 2012, and recently took to the set of Meet The Press where he accused the GOP broadly of looking “down on minorities. He added, a “dark vein of intolerance” runs through the Republican Party – a political affiliation Powell still maintains. But if many Republicans are frustrated by Powell’s remarks, MSNBC host Joe Scarborough is not among them. He appeared on Hardball with Chris Matthews on Wednesday where he said that the GOP needs Powell and what he represents far more than it needs people like Republican candidates who lost statewide races in 2012 like Todd Akin or Richard Mourdock. Matthews outlined the problem conservatives face by listing a number of groups and demographic segments of society that he claimed had once been attracted to the Republican Party but have since abandoned the GOP. “How do you aba ...
AMNESTY MY *** After a four-day gushing of praise from the mainstream media over the Gang of Eight's immigration proposal, reality is beginning to sink in. Today's Washington Post headline read: DEAL ON MIGRANTS FACES BIG OBSTACLE And Politico also played up a theme pushed all week by our very own Rosemary Jenks (who has been quoted more than 200 times this week) that not all Democrats are on board with offering an amnesty to the nation's 11 million illegal aliens. Some of this started yesterday when CNN commentator and Newsweek Washington Bureau Chief Howard Kurtz called out the media for its slanted coverage of the immigration proposals. In his column, he wrote that the "mainstream media are rooting for immigration reform" and cautioned them on their optimism. They swoon over the kind of bipartisanship that brings together John Mccain and Marco Rubio on the one hand and Barack Obama and Chuck Schumer on the other. They believe the Republican Party needs to moderate its harsh rhetoric about immigrants - ...
America we need to fire the Congress, every last one of them should go if the Republic is to have a chance to survive. We no longer have a two Party system. The fact that Obama is still in power was a gift to the Democrats from the Republicans. All you have to do is look at the evidence. The only way Obama’s radical agenda had a chance of succeeding was with the help of the Republican Party. In spite of all the staged fighting over his policies, Barack Obama always get’s what he wants’. It’s all about insider trading, and the payouts to both Parties. John Boehner as you know was caught indulging in insider trading. What you don’t know is, in order make money this way the people they serve have to lose. In other words they put forward a bill on our behalf like they’re supposed to do only they bet against its passage. The bill fails and they make money. We lose, they win and that’s how it works. There’s a lot more to be said about insider trading in the White House but I would like to enligh ...
Obama's Thunderdome Strategy At the Ripon Society last week he said the Obama administration was trying "to annihilate the Republican Party." Better late than never, Speaker Boehner now sees that Barack Obama's notion of political competition is Mad Max inside the Thunderdome: "Two men enter, one man leaves." Last week during the president's second inaugural address, if one can employ that hallowed phrase to describe this speech, Mr. Obama used the occasion to defend entitlement programs by whacking his defeated presidential opponent: "They do not make us a nation of takers." This was the second time Mr. Obama used a traditionally elevated forum to take down his opposition. His 2010 State of the Union speech will be remembered in history for nothing other than an attack on members of the Supreme Court seated before him. Justice Samuel Alito's whispered "Not true" would prove a prophetic comment on the Obama modus operandi. Subsequent targets of the president's contempt have included the members of Congre ...
I'm sure all my Republican friends will disagree with this. Taken from Truthdig.com Soon after President Obama’s second inaugural address, John Boehner said the White House would try “to annihilate the Republican Party”. Actually, the GOP is doing a pretty good job annihilating itself. As Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal put it, Republicans need to “stop being the stupid party.” The GOP crackup was probably inevitable. Inconsistencies and tensions within the GOP have been growing for years – ever since Ronald Reagan put together the coalition that became the modern Republican Party. All President Obama has done is finally find ways to exploit these inconsistencies. In his first term Barack Obama seemed the perfect foil: A black man, a big- spending liberal, perhaps (they hissed) not even an American. Republicans accused him of being insufficiently patriotic. Right-wing TV and radio snarled he secretly wanted to take over America, suspend our rights. Mitch Mcconnell declared that unseating him . ...
Le Monde Diplo Occupy Wall Street and its evil twin, the Tea Party. Yes, but what are you for? by Thomas Frank Reading all the accounts of Occupy Wall Street's theorising in Zuccotti Park can send you to sleep: all academic prose and no real world action or demands. They also make explicit Occupy's resemblance to its enemy, the Tea Party. There is a scene I always recall when I try to remember the exhilarating effect that Occupy Wall Street (OWS) had on me when it was first getting going. I was on a subway train in Washington, DC, reading an article about the protests in Zuccotti Park in Manhattan. It was three years after the Wall Street bailouts. It was two years after everyone I knew had given up hope in the creativity of Barack Obama. It was two months after the bankers' friends in the Republican Party had pushed the country right to the brink of default in order to underscore their hallucinatory economic theories. Like everyone else, I had had enough. Anyhow, the subway car was boarded by some perfec ...
The US Federal Government has strayed so far from the Constitution and the rule of law that it can now be considered rogue and illegitimate. Written by Lawrence Sellin The thoroughly irresponsible rate of government spending projected over the next twenty-five years will drive federal debt to unsustainable levels. The country is heading for a financial meltdown and economic ruin. The Republican Party is inept and impotent and cannot provide the necessary political opposition to the crimes and unconstitutional policies of the Obama regime or stand against the rampant voter fraud which is now polluting the electoral process. There is a report claiming that the Republican Party signed a legal agreement with the Democrat Party in 1982 not to pursue suspected vote fraud. If there is no guarantee of election integrity, then elections become only window dressing for tyranny. Barack Obama is an illegal President and unindicted felon. Congress, the American media and the courts are engaged in a criminal conspiracy ...

President Obama’s Inauguration speech on Monday was simply a laundry list of his liberal priorities. Rather than send a unifying message or deliver an actual plan to create jobs and stimulate the economy, Barack Obama issued a mandate for his big-government, big-spending agenda. In fact, jobs and the economy were barely mentioned in the speech. Speaker John Boehner said it best: Barack Obama’s focus is to “annihilate the Republican Party.” Another four years of President Obama means another four years of empty promises and reckless policies. That’s why it’s important we stop him in his tracks by maintaining and growing our House Republican Majority. We’re the only ones who can stop the liberals’ annihilation of everything we stand for and everything we’ve worked for -- from our core principles to our take-home pay. First, President Obama and Nancy Pelosi raided Medicare benefits to pay for Obamacare. Now, they’re just sitting back and letting Medicare go bankrupt. A new report just fou ...
Please read this article. The last paragraph is indicative of their strategies. I guess I should expect this from Eric Cantor's home state. Important to be aware of this kind of action and its impact on elections. It affirms my intention that I will never vote Republican. from the Atlanta Journal Constitution, 01.25.13 via Google News "GOP battle plan: If you can’t compete, cheat" 8:17 am January 25, 2013, by Jay Bookman Taking its cue from the likes of Lance Armstrong, dozens of Atlanta Public School teachers and Bernie Madoff, the Republican Party is embracing a bold new solution to its political problems: If you can’t compete, cheat. And cheat big. In Virginia, for example, Barack Obama has carried the state and its 13 electoral votes in the last two elections, becoming the first Democrat to carry the state back-to-back since Franklin Roosevelt. But rather than work harder to win back the state, or adopt policies more relevant to the needs of its voters, Republicans are advancing another solution. ...
The national leaders of the Republican Party are smarter and more relentless than the national leaders of the Democratic Party. Here's an example. (Oh, and Barack Obama is smarter than anybody else in the Democratic Party. The rest of its leaders are blinded by their racism, with few exceptions. The Clintons, Senator John Kerry, Senator Schuemer, and a few others don't appear to be blinded by racism. The rest, including the Demo Congressional leadership are either racist, incompetent, or both.)
I have an announcement to make! I think it is time I leave the Republican Party. I am tired of being referred to by Andrea Mitchell as a Radical, MSNBC as a racist and the constant defamation of my character and my intellect because I am a member of the Tea Party. I am tired of watching sell outs like Condaleeza Rice and Colin Powell tell me I am not in step with America. I know that the number of 13 is higher than 35 and that the number of Democrats in Congress is higher than Republicans. I guess I need to recognize that 50% to 48% is a landslide. That even though 75% of American Geography votes Conservative, while only 25% vote Communists, that they are still the majority, because the media says so and what do I know? Wait a minute, What do I know? I know that hiding something from the American People is done for one purpose and that is to HIDE SOMETHING. I know that Bill Clinton and Barack Obama barely got to 50% that means if half the nation is ignorant, stupid and communistic, then the other half ...
Thom Hartmann and Sam Sacks in today's Chimp: "Four years ago Inaugural Day, as the new president, Barack Obama, was making the rounds of the inaugural balls, Eric Cantor had gathered powerful members of the Republican Party at an upscale steakhouse in Washington, DC’s Penn Quarter, a private room in a restaurant called the Caucus Room. Their agenda was straightforward. Sabotage the American economy, blame it on the young President, and then retake the White House in four years."
To describe listening to both sides today, Barack Obama's 2nd Inaguration day, is beyond difficult for me. OUR PRESIDENT IS NOT PERFECT!!! And I'm pretty sure he would be the first to admit it!!! Who among us will not admit the same??? But then Faux News, the Republican Party, Rush Limbaugh, Shaun Hannity, etc, etc, weighed in and you would have thought that Barack Obama was the devil himself!!! Worse than Adolph Hitler, worse than Godzilla!!! Charles Manson and Jack the Ripper, *** compared to Barack Obama!!! So, of course they can't compromise with him. How can you compromise with the devil? They must be more rigid, unbending, unyielding than ever before! And the vast majority of Americans who voted for Obama and want him and America to succeed are wrong and they will not allow that!
I have been oh so wrong about the gun debate. I failed to understand what I was looking at. This debate is not about Obama vs. the Republicans in Congrees. Or the paranoid vs. the rational. No, what we are seeing is the mirror image of the late 80's-early 90's. At that time, after losing 3 consecutive elections to Ronald Reagan and George Bush Sr., the Democratic Party was forced to take a long, hard look at itself. They realized that the party had been held hostage by the extreme liberal elements in the party. They decided to put a sock in the far left, move the party to the center, and nominated Bill Clinton, a centrist Democrat. I can hear the shrieks now from the right howling about how liberal Clinton was. Ignore the noise and look at the policies, very moderate. After losing 2 elections to Barack Obama, the Republican Party has realized that they are held hostage by Grover Norquist and the NRA. They are tired of losing, and are taking a page from the Democratic playbook. In the "fiscal cliff" debate ...
End Of Day Report Tuesday, January 15, 2013 To: Friends & Supporters From: Gary L. Bauer The Bully's Pulpit Virtually every day since he won reelection, Barack Obama has addressed the nation, made a speech, held a press conference or given an interview in which he has attacked Republicans, conservatives or the half of the country that didn't vote for him. Obama is behaving as though he won a massive landslide. He did not. Obama got 51% of the vote. At the same time, voters returned a Republican majority to the House of Representatives and increased the number of Republican governors to 30. The notion that Obama has some kind of overwhelming mandate is absurd. We can, and I often do, criticize the GOP for not being more aggressive in defending its positions. But, my friends, this simple fact cannot be overstated -- there is no one in the Republican Party right now who can command the media high ground like the president can. Even if John Boehner were the reincarnation of Ronald Reagan, the networks would n ...
id voter fraud make the crucial difference in the 2012 election? No one knows for sure -- and that's just the way the Left likes it. Pawing through the ashes of the Romney defeat, it's clear that if the Republican Party wants to compete nationally, it has to do several things, such as re-message timeless traditional values, attract more young and minority voters, particularly Hispanics, and do a better job of getting out the vote. But this will be moot if the integrity of the voting process is not restored. From Republican Rep. Allen West's improbable recount loss in South Florida, to reports of voting machine irregularities, to the hundreds of precincts in Ohio and Pennsylvania that reported a virtual 100-percent vote for Barack Obama and zero for Mitt Romney, something is clearly wrong. "It's kind of a weird coincidence that, in Philadelphia, where more than 50 precincts reported no votes for Romney, that Democratic officials kicked GOP poll watchers out of the polls," Heritage Foundation scholar Hans v ...
"Admittedly, not every accusation of racism against the Republican Party has turned out to be actual racism. But the birther thing is. The Southern Strategy is. The Voter ID crusade is. And in numerous cases, Republicans hate the president because he represents the browning of America and the slow suffocation of White Supremacy. They’re willing to permit a few tokens like Marco Rubio, Allen West and Condoleezza Rice because they serve a purpose: to blunt often valid criticism of racism in the party’s rhetoric and electoral strategy. But leaders like Susan Rice and Barack Obama are the real deal, with lopsidedly massive support among all minority groups. Republicans will never fully understand how badly the Southern Strategy has poisoned the party. And no matter how many “scare quotes” are employed or how many times they desperately reach back and try to paint the modern Democratic Party with a Dixiecrat brush, they’ve created this racism problem themselves and I doubt they can dig their way out ...
ROMMNEY-POOR LOSER. AFTER YOUR EXCELLENT CONCESSION SPEECH.? I THOUGHT YOURS WILL BE 3RD TIME LUCKY LIKE ABE LINCOLN. YOU JUST SUNK YOUR CHANCES WITH THIS CARELESS AND ABSOLUTELY UNNECESSARY STATEMENT! ATA Obama bribed women and youth to win – Romney Posted by foluso The candidate of the Republican Party in the just-concluded Presidential Election in the United States of America, Mitt Romney, said at a conference call with donors, on Thursday, that Barack Obama won the 2012 presidential campaign because of “gifts” given by the administration to black, Hispanic and young voters. “The President’s campaign focused on giving targeted groups a big gift, so he made a big effort on small things. Those small things, by the way, add up to trillions of dollars.” Mr Romney said. He said moves like the president’s healthcare reform legislation and a decision to suspend deportation of certain illegal immigrants who came to the country as children proved “highly motivational” on Election Day. Mr Romne ...
Barack Obama's view on Iran 'completely different' from Israel's Iran has claimed that the Obama administration has "completely different" views on the Islamic Republic to Israel and the US Republican Party, according to an intelligence ministry report. Mr Netanyahu, Mr Ahmadinejad and Mr Obama Photo: REUTERS/AFP By Barney Henderson, and agencies 8:30PM GMT 08 Nov 2012 296 Comments The report, posted on the ministry's newly launched website vaja.ir, claimed that the Democrats had "pinned their" hopes on a diplomatic solution to the Iranian nuclear threat, and that there was "open confrontation between President Barack Obama and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on the issue. It was apparently prepared before Mr Obama's re-election victory on Tuesday over Mitt Romney. "The Republican party has a more severe confrontational approach towards Iran ... and its proposed policies are close to those of the Zionist (Israel) regime," it said according to an AFP report.

I believe Brent is right about everything he states here, EXCEPT: We did not lose the election because of Romney/Ryan. We had good candidates. We lost because the election was stolen right under our nose. Until we True the vote, it doesn't matter how conservative our Candidates are, we will lose. Harriet From the Desk of: L. Brent Bozell III, Founder and President Media Research Center November 16th, 2012 Dear Harriet, Following the re-election of Barack Obama, the liberal media are shamelessly using his win over moderate Mitt Romney to scare the GOP away from re-embracing its winning conservative message. As documented by the Media Research Center, the corrupt media are seizing on Obama's victory to discredit and attack conservatives, the Tea Party, and Rush Limbaugh in a blatant attempt to splinter the Republican Party and its conservative base: * ABC's Barbara Walters assailed the GOP for being "behind" on social issues. * The Washington Post went on a mission to look for right-wingers who plan ...
Thursday, November 15, 2012 The 2012 elections surprised both sides and hit a reset button on the Obama administration - and American politics. Here are 10 conclusions: 1. So much for Citizens United destroying the fabric of America with big bucks automatically meaning victory. Billionaire Sheldon Adelson would have gotten more bang for his buck if he had visited The Chicken Ranch. 2. Republican Party, you DID build that: From its wishful-thinking alternate reality; to its exiling and dissing of moderates who then voted for Barack Obama in huge numbers; to its polarizing talk show hosts turning off key demographic groups; to its cherry-picking partisan pollsters and voter suppression efforts that brought indignant targeted voters out to vote - the GOP literally gave this election away. In the end, Clint Eastwood's empty chair symbolizes the inaccuracy of Republican assumptions about the Presidential race, the degree of national conservative support - and about America. The National Journal's Charlie Cook ...
FOR OUR COUNTRY. From: John Porter To: Americans everywhere I was sitting at my keyboard halfway through my writing a letter to you about how Barack Obama was fulfilling his pledge to "Transform America" by "Changing the fundamentals of America", so that our government would become the plantation, he the owner, and we the slaves, when this article by Steve McCann appeared in my in box. After checking it for accuracy, and finding it so, I put my writing on hold and here present it to you, for I could not say it better. ...Is it already too late? Obama's Second Term Transformation Plans The 2012 election has often been described as the most pivotal since 1860. This statement is not hyperbole. If Barack Obama is re-elected the United States will never be the same, nor will it be able to re-capture its once lofty status as the most dominant nation in the history of mankind. The overwhelming majority of Americans do not understand that Obama's first term was dedicated to putting in place executive power to ena ...

Everyday Guy Rush Limbaugh Decries Republican 'Ruling Class' Posted: 14 Nov 2012 06:00 AM PST I caught a reference to this little Limbaugh riff on the teevee yesterday (no, I'm not linking to his site): RUSH: Do you remember that piece by Angelo Codevilla that came out in summer 2010 in the American Spectator called "The Ruling Class"? We spent a lot of time here analyzing it and talking about it. That's what we face today. And our guys in the upper echelon of the Republican Party want to fashion themselves as members of the ruling class. We, the country class, are not in the ruling class. We're the problem. A couple of sound bites, then I'll illustrate. Let's just pick a couple at random, but grab number one. Meet The Press during the roundtable. The guest is Republican strategist Steve Schmidt, who authored the John Mccain defeat against Barack Obama in 2008. Steve Schmidt, the consultant who came up with the plan that secured defeat in the Presidential Election, has the answer. And I couldn't help but ...
Here are some lessons I hope the Republican Party learned from Tuesday’s election: 1. Voters still blame George W. Bush, not Barack Obama, for the state of the economy. So stop demonizing people who are living on food stamps and unemployment insurance. They would much prefer to be working and earning a living wage. 2. Women don’t like to be lectured by men about their bodies and their health care decisions. 3. When you try to suppress the vote, you only succeed in motivating people to turn out in droves and stand in line for hours just to vote against you. Mark Anderson, Greeley
Wow- a rational conservative view point- very interesting! Viewpoint: Republicans at a crossroads By Rod Dreher Senior editor, The American Conservative In the aftermath of defeat against a vulnerable president, an inquest is under way in the "Grand Old Party". Surveying the smoking rubble of the Republican Party's election hopes, the right-wing talk radio giant Rush Limbaugh made a declaration. "Conservatism, in my humble opinion, did not lose last night. It's just very difficult to beat Santa Claus." Read those two sentences carefully, for they tell you a lot about the massive psychological problem the Republicans face - and why it will be extraordinarily difficult and painful for them to deal with reality. "I went to bed last night thinking we've lost the country," said Limbaugh, on the day after. "I don't know how else you look at this." So a plain-vanilla Republican like Mitt Romney losing a close election to Barack Obama amounts to the Conservative Apocalypse? Good grief. Where does this pants-wetti ...
About Mr. President Barack Obama: The majority of the voting citizens of the United States of America voted for him on November 4th, 2008. He received 365 electoral votes, while his main opponent, John Mccain of the Republican Party, received only 173. Barack Obama also won a majority of the popular vote, 52.9% (69,456,897) while John Mccain only received 45.7% (59,934,814). President Obama ran on a progressive campaign of change. It is clear that is what the American people wanted. Presidential candidates must work through a long and difficult process to win the election. Stages in the Obama road to president: 1. Win the Democratic Primaries to become the Democratic candidate for president. This required defeating Hillary Clinton, among others. 2. Win the Presidential Election by the people and electoral votes. 3. Take the Oath of Office There were many factors at play: 1. Developing a group that was able to beat the Clinton machine. 2. There was large public dissatisfaction with the Presidency of George ...
Here's the thing people. We asked people to vote for Mitt Romney, a man that conservatives mocked at CPAC for saying he was "severely conservative", because it was a ridiculous thing to say and because we knew it wasn't true. We asked people to vote against Barack Obama. Well it's much easier to get people enthusiastic to go out and vote FOR someone they believe in than it is to get them to go out and vote against someone that they may or may not believe is trying to hurt them. If you're not a political junkie and/or a conservative, you're not going to get ginned up about voting against Obama. Add to that the fact that many people are fed up with BOTH parties and the partisan bickering and gridlock and you get the result we got on Election Day. The Republican Party needs to stop pushing the "moderate", allegedly "electable" candidate model. It didn't work with John Mccain and it didn't work with Romney. If we're going to run a candidate, let's run one that can clearly articulate the principles of fiscal r ...
The Republican Party is run by a bunch of angry white guys ie. Carl Rove and Donald Trump if you witnessed their behavior in the last few days. If they ever want to regain the White House they will have to realize that America is so diverse and the average American looks a lot more like Barack Obama and has more of his life story than angry white guys. For instance the Hispanics felt abandoned left out and in most cases hated by the Republican Party as do other ethic people and as you can see by the results of the last 2 elections you cannot win without them. The RP must see that we are a nation of immigrants, past and present. Every existing American today ancestors came from somewhere else unless you are American lndian or Eskimo. Our culture is rich and diverse because of this not in spite of it. Don't get me wrong I don't want to help the Republicans win at all I'm just sayin'
Last night on Fox News, the Bush-Rove wing of the Republican Party was on the air pointing fingers at Romney's immigration policies as the cause of his loss. This is false because Romney and McCain both did about as well among Hispanics despite McCain being the biggest immigration panderer to the right of Ted Kennedy. It is amazing, however, to see the Cheap Labor Lobby attempt to squeeze out one last ounce of profit as the Republic burns. The simpler explanation is that many members of minority groups are simply racist against the party most white people happen to vote for. Take Asian Americans, for example. If any group should be Republican, it should be this group, as they earn more money and pay more in taxes than white Americans. They, along with whites, bear the brunt of affirmative action policies; Barack Obama is the living personification of why their kids have to score 200 points higher on the SAT to get into the Ivy League. Yet, exit polls revealed they voted about 70% for Obama. I'm afr ...
Some post-election thoughts: The overwhelming victory of Barack Obama in the last Presidential Election should not come as a surprise to the Republican Party. The GOP has adopted economic and social radicalism that turns away the rational voters. The concept of revenue generating by strict tax (and spending) cuts is economic radicalism. To let the "Invisible Hand" take care of a financial crisis may work in economics theory, but such approach results in dire consequences to real people, who are also real voters. Thus, to refuse to bail out the auto industry and let it try to save itself during the financial crisis may have some merit to the Miltonian economist, but such merit is meaningless to the workers whose jobs depend on the immediate survival of the industry. Those workers are also voters. To privatize Social Security and Medicare may be a good business strategy to Wall Street, but to the beneficiaries of those programs, it's only speculating with the financial source they rely on to survive during ...
Strangely I can watch the news again. Instead of hearing Roger Ailes' minions explaining that the architect of Barack Obama's Presidency was going to magically be elected to replace him; I am hearing that the Republican Party needed to attract young voters, Latino voters, and address a "fiscal cliff", otherwise it will be impossible to ever get elected again. I hope voters remember that Paul/Rubio is the only possibility 3 years hence.
Presidential Election, 2012 · Interest The 2012 United States Presidential Election took place on November 6, 2012. It was the 57th quadrennial Presidential Election in which presidential electors from each U.S. state, who officially elect the president and the vice president of the United States on December 17, 2012, were chosen. Incumbent Democratic President Barack Obama and Democratic Vice President Joe Biden ran for a second term during this election, the former being constitutionally limited to only two terms. Their major challengers were the Republican Party nominee and former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney and his running mate, Congressman Paul Ryan of Wisconsin. Most major television networks had projected the winners would be President Obama and Vice President Biden, possibly by an extremely tight margin and at times the election was seen as too close to predict. At about 1:00 AM EST (6:00 AM GMT) on November 7, Mitt Romney conceded the election to Barack Obama, just as the polls in Alaska ...
Once upon a time Republican Party was for minorities and African-Americans. Until Pres. Hayers sold out the African American community win the presidency. He agree to remove federal troops from the south During reconstruction time period. Than southern Democrats and defeated Confederate officials troops went on to oppress the African-American vote in the South and their right. Later on in our country history The Democrats came along and said that there was for women's rights and African-American rights. All because they wanted to win. That is why I am Independent. Because I do not trust either party. But I voted for Pres. Barack Obama. Not because he is a black man or because he's a Democrat. But because I believe that he will be fair. Barry Goldwater the father of the modern-day Republican part far as lowing the taxes for rich and being against Anything to do with the new deal that Frederick Roosvelt made. Goldwater Would have a issue with the current Republican party today. Because today Republican P ...
If you are sick of political posts, skip this one. This will be my last political rant before we will know who our next President will be. I'm not going to try and sway anyone with this post. You know who you're voting for and that's cool. What I have is more of a political prediction, prognostication, prophecy. I think Barack Obama will win the election. I don't think results will be finalized tonight or even in the coming days as I expect there to be more voting mishaps, political shenanigans (from both sides) and litigation than ever before. Ultimately though, Obama will win, though not with a very strong mandate from the American people. In the coming days and weeks, the far right fringe will begin to turn on Romney. Straight cannibalism homey. Instead of seeing this election for what it is, a repudiation of the far right's HIJACKING of the Republican Party with such regressive social policies that it would make those that supported the Islamic Revolution in the 12th Century blush, the GOP noi ...
I realize that I will probably be unfriended by some of my right wing friends and family by posting this, but I think it's very important, so here it goes. When you are standing there in the voting booth tomorrow about to cast your vote, please consider voting for Barack Obama. If Mitt Romney gets into office he will be bringing with him the policies of not just himself, (whatever they may be that day) but the policies of all the crazy, ignorant, hate spewing Racist, Tea bagger, war mongering, Evangelical Zealots that have taken over the Republican Party. People like Todd Akin, Richard Murdock, Pat Robertson, Michele Bachmann, Sarah Palin, Glen Beck, Rush Limbaugh Ann Coulter, Donald Trump, Rick Santorum and most importantly, George W. Bush. Since 2010, when the Republican Party took control of congress, they have done everything in their power to destroy the middle class by blocking: the Wall Street reform bill, Unemployment extension bill, Healthcare for 911 responders, a bill to raise taxes on companie ...
The Party of No It was December 2008, Barack Obama had just been elected--and the Republican Party had just followed George W. Bush off a political cliff. After preaching small government, balanced budgets and economic growth while producing bigger government, exploding deficits and economic collapse, they had gotten pasted for the second straight election. Publishers were rushing out titles like The Strange Death of Republican America and 40 More Years: How the Democrats Will Rule the Next Generation. "We were in disarray," recalls Representative Pete Sessions of Texas. "People were comparing us to cockroaches, saying we weren't even relevant. We had to change the mind-set." With the economy in free fall and Obama's approval rating in the stratosphere, the Beltway believed chastened Republicans would have to cooperate with him. But Eric Cantor of Virginia, the new House minority whip, believed chastened Republicans should start acting like Republicans. He summoned his whip team to his condo building to p ...
Five Reasons You Shouldn’t Vote for Barack Obama 1.Barack Obama is a corporate suck-up. The President’s a member of the Democratic Party, which, like the Republican Party, consists of Washington *** working for their Wall Street pimps. 2.Barack Obama unleashed unchecked military powers. He signed the National Defense Authorization Act of 2010, which for the first time in history permits the government to assassinate American citizens abroad, to hold citizens and foreigners without charge indefinitely in and outside the U.S. 3.Barack Obama said “to *** with your tired, your poor, and your huddled masses.” He deported more human beings, most of whom were brown and black, than any other president in American history. In 2011, he broke his own 2010 record of 392,862 when he kicked 396,906 men, women and children out of the country. 4.His Justice Department, using national security claims and the Espionage Act of 1917 as pretexts, has prosecuted more whistleblowers like Thomas Drake and John Kiriak ...

“A friend of mine says the US is like a sandwich, made up of two coasts of sanity with an asylum in between.” By Matt McCarten of the New Zealand Herald: On Wednesday the Americans will decide who their next president is. After the recent Republican Party conference I wrote in this column that their nominee Mitt Romney could actually win. It seems incredible that this obvious phoney could beat incumbent Barack Obama. With increasing globalisation and dominance of the US, any visiting aliens would assume the US president was the leader of the world. Every day, the world’s newspapers and television breathlessly cover each twist and turn of the presidential campaign. If the world got to vote, Obama would romp home. We scratch our heads that there is barely one percentage point between the two presidential candidates. Racism plays a big part. But it’s even more depressing than that. Because American culture via media, film and lifestyle so dominates us, we think we know the American psyche. A friend o ...
I was born in 1915 during World War I. My first vote was in 1940 for Franklin D. Roosevelt and I have not missed an election since. And I want the Republican Party to know if your voter suppression throughout this beautiful country enables Romney to oust Barack Obama...we will burn this motherf---er...
A wise New Yorker's response to a NYTimes editorial about Romney as a, well, in short, a liar. The writer is Tosar NY What does it say about the Republican Party and its followers that the best candidate it could field for the presidency is someone like Mitt Romney? I am a progressive Democrat, but even I could have seen myself voting for John Huntsman who is thoughtful, sophisticated, educated and witty...in other words, anathema to the current requirements of GOP affiliation. I WANT to be able to reach across the political divide, but truly the other side has aligned itself with an array of candidates from Palin to Bachman to Akin, to an agenda of lies and denial of science, to racism, homophobia and misogyny that makes me feel embarrassed in front of the world at large. Our brightest moment as a country in recent years has been the election of Barack Obama who has proven his mettle against unprecedented obstruction and attack. True to form, the Republicans are busy tampering with the electoral process. ...
Republican Senator, Vietnam Veteran Endorses President Obama Larry Pressler, retired Republican US Senator from SD As a combat veteran of two tours in Vietnam with twenty-two years of service as a Republican member of the U.S. House and Senate, I endorse President Barack Obama for a second term as our Commander-in-Chief. Candidates publicly praise our service members, veterans and their families, but President Obama supports them in word and deed, anywhere and every time. As a Vietnam vet, one of the reasons I support President Obama is because he has consistently shown he understands that our commitment to our servicemen and women may begin when they put on their uniform, but that it must never end. This decision is not easy for any lifelong Republican. In 2008 I voted for Barack Obama, the first time I ever voted for a Democrat, because the Republican Party was drifting toward a dangerous path that put extreme party ideology above national interest. Mitt Romney heads a party remaining on that dangerous ...
President Barack Obama (Credit: Reuters/Yuri Gripas) A few days ago, I participated in a debate with the legendary antiwar dissident Daniel Ellsberg on Huffington Post live on the merits of the Obama administration, and what progressives should do on Election Day. Ellsberg had written a blog post arguing that, though Obama deserves tremendous criticism, voters in swing states ought to vote for him, lest they operate as dupes for a far more malevolent Republican Party. This attitude is relatively pervasive among Democrats, and it deserves a genuine response. As the election is fast approaching, this piece is an attempt at laying out the progressive case for why one should not vote for Barack Obama for reelection, even if you are in a swing state. There are many good arguments against Obama, even if the Republicans cannot seem to muster any. The Civil Liberties/antiwar case was made eloquently a few weeks ago by libertarian Conor Friedersdorf, who wrote a well-cited blog post on why he could not, in good co ...
I have been asked who i am voting for Tuesday? While I have not always voted Republican, in the past few national elections i have voted strait party Republican because the Democratic Party is the LEAST representative of a Biblical World View, and that is ESPECIALLY TRUE in this election! In this election I am faced with a choice for president in which neither candidate truly has a Biblical world view, however, Mitt Romney is closer to it than Barack Obama and more importantly, the Republican Party platform more closely supports a Biblical world view than the Democrats do. In SC, I will split my vote for a couple of write in candidates, Joe Thompson for State Senate and John Rinehart for County Council. If you are part of the 3% who have not made up your mind by now, i would love to talk with you because the future of this country is on the line Tuesday!
If George Romney wins the election and becomes our next president, I will call his administration.THE REIGN OF DARKNESS because the American Dream, so fragile as it is now, will become TOTALLY unreachable to all but those who can benefit from the inheritance of their parents. Romney will leave a legacy that will have repercussions far into the future, as the Supreme Court will become more conservative and more beholden to eliminating freedoms, while blessing the corporatist agenda of the Republican Party. I cannot believe that this is more and more becoming a liklihood and how totally brainwashed the American electorate really is. Barack Obama may not be perfect but his ideals will carry this nation forward into this century. On the other hand, the policies of the far right will set this nation so far back and the American people will willingly sit back and become serfs to the chosen few. God Bless us all; the REIGN OF DARKNESS may be about to become reality.
Colin Powell + Barack Obama = integrity, Mitt Romney + John Sununu = white lies * * * Racism in the Republican party... Surprised? NOT!
This article is getting STELLAR reviews. and the Road Ahead: The Rolling Stone Interview In an Oval Office conversation with a leading historian, the president discusses what he would do with a second term – and his opponent's embrace of 'the most extreme positions in the Republican Party' We arrived at the Oval Office for our 45-minute interview with President Obama on the morning of October 11th. After our conversation ended, the president would board Air Force One for Florida, where he was slated to hold a rally at the University of Miami before watching Vice President Joe Biden debate Rep. Paul Ryan. But now, before the tape recorders were turned on, the president and I chatted for a minute about "The Bronco Buster," the Frederic Remington sculpture next to his desk that once belonged to Theodore Roosevelt. Then, as the small talk began to eat up too much time, Obama took charge. "All right," he said briskly. "Let's fire up." Photos: President Barack Obama Barack Obama can no longer preach the brigh ...
In a stunning betrayal of the Republican Party, Rosemary Mulligan has endorsed Martin J. Moylan, Madigan's hand picked candidate, 55th District State Representative. Rosemary will always be remembered as a Trojan Horse within the Maine Township Republican organization. With the truth apparent her endorsement of (R) Susan Sweeny's opponent makes you wonder if the incompetent behavior by the Committeeman Mulligan in Maine township was by accident or by choice? Susan Sweeney put herself on the front line to recover Republican representation in Maine Township from the inadequate leadership of Rosemary Mulligan. Members of Republicans of Maine Township must demand Rosemary Mulligan, resign immediately from her GOP committeeman position and the Illinois GOP Party must purge this democrat from the party. During the 2008 Presidential Election campaign Mulligan Campaign Flyer pictured Candidate Mulligan with Barack Obama prominently positioned stating (I paraphrase): Team mates keeping the team strong! For too l ...
The Urban Conspiracy: Racially Shifting the Black Vote Behind Obama at all Cost As the election draws closer, I have noticed several of the urban radio stations playing similar campaign ads. Although there is nothing suspicious about urban stations playing the same campaign ads (Democrats have their own black ads), I do find it suspicious that the major radio show hosts seem to carry a similar tune in racially idolizing Barack Obama. Call me a conspiracy theorist, but I strongly suspect that the Democrat Party, along with a few major urban radio programs, have conspired together in pushing this racial call to Obama loyalty within the black communities. These radio hosts do not speak about the economic issues, the impact of the employment in the black community, the main theme of these shows are to racially denigrate the Republican Party and to racially uphold Barack Obama. It is a desperate act of divide; however, it is occurring on your urban radio stations. Even the most Christian of stations that targe ...
I mourn the passing of George Mcgovern, a true American and patriot, who I worked for while living in Pittsburgh in 1971-72 for for who I proudly cast my first Presidential vote. Now tomorrow I will vote early in this year's Presidential Election. I will vote for Barack Obama. Why? Because I believe in women's rights, I believe in worker's rights, I believe in protecting our environment, I believe in creating an environment in which everyone has an opportunity to vote, I believe in equal rights for all people, I believe we as Americans have an obligation to provide a safety net to those less fortunate, I believe that we must keep our promises to our senior citizens, I believe we must elect politicians who do not obfuscate, lie, or say anything to get elected--things the Republican Party as it is constructed today do not believe in. Oh yeh, I am also voting for Obama because I am not a racist. I will proudly cast my vote tomorrow for the man who has stopped the Iran war, who has created 31 straight months ...
Mike Trout shared the following link and had this to say about it: "I told him: “I don’t ‘support Obama.’ I oppose the current Republican Party. This is not a contest between Barack Obama and a progressive candidate. The voters in a handful or a dozen close-fought swing states are going to determine whether Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan are going to wield great political power for four, maybe eight years, or not .
Sgt Mora, I salute you. Now is the time for all good men (and most importantly women) to come to the aid of their country. Barack Obama is the Jackie Robinson of politics. He came to office in the midst of the worst financial crisis since the Great Depression brought on by the total and complete mismanagement of the government by that mental deficient Bush. In spite of the great danger facing the country, from day one he was faced by a conspiratorial opposition of the Republican Party. He has had to endure every indignity of birthers and worse like Joe Wilson calling him a liar in a joint session of Congress, Arizona's Jan Brewer wagging her decrepit finger in his face . While the country struggles, the Tea Party brought the country to its knees during the debt crisis in 2011, allowing our credit rating to be lowered for no reason after backing away from Obama's 4 trillion dollar Grand Bargain. I am sure he has swallowed hard many nights but has had to endure for the good of all of us. Thoughtful, compa ...
I don't normally listen to Rush Limbaugh - he's a bit too left wing for my taste. But today I caught a bit of his show, and the Doctor of Democracy convinced me that Barack Obama would be the best choice for President in this year's election. Bizarre, I know. But here's the deal: the USA has two fatal ailments, neither of which can be resolved by Mitt Romney and the Republican party. First, and most poisonous, is our desire for services we want someone else to underwrite. We can overtax the rich but they'll just take their investment capital somewhere else, starving our economy and thus shorting the government's take. Or we can take loans and transfer the burden to future generations - until folks realize we have no intention of paying off the bonds and stop loaning us money. Which has already happened, to no one's great surprise. Doh! The second terminal cancer is, of course, successful businesses using their influence with Government Officials to create "Atlas Shrugged"-style hurdles for new ventures th ...

Message from the Chairman of the Republican Party of Sarasota County: Today, the Orlando Sentinel, Central Florida's Largest Newspaper announced their endorsement of Mitt Romney for President (posted below). This is particularly interesting and exciting because just four years ago, this very same paper endorsed Barack Obama for President, but after 4 years of failed leadership and policies (as mentioned in the article), they have now realized that voters should replace Barack Obama with Mitt Romney. I hope you'll take time to read this very well thought out editorial endorsement and I also ask that you forward this email to every email address on your contact list (Republicans, Democrats & Especially Independents). Thank you for being informed & engaged, Joe Gruters Chairman, Republican Party of Sarasota County - Orlando Sentinel Our Pick For President: Mitt Romney Two days after his lackluster first debate performance, President Barack Obama's re-election hopes got a timely boost.

I heard of a wonderfully encouraging happening today. It actually has the tale of America written all over it in mini-form, which is good for our place in time; especially only a few short weeks before the U.S. Presidential Election of possibly all time for Liberty. So, the young person tells me, a colleague confided in her that she is perplexed about this year's election. It so happens that she was raised to believe that the Democrat Party was historically the party for the "middle class and the poor" and that the Republican Party has been the one of the S---Bs whom only cared and care about themselves and the "rich" in America, (oh boy!). So then this young single mom of two kids attended a family event some days ago, where she proudly blasted to her family her happy choice for POTUS, that being Barack Obama. To her dismay and confusion, the vociferous and hearty reply back to her was something like "What in the world?!?" Needless to say she was shocked and bewildered. Only to find out that there was ev ...
7 Reasons to Vote for Obama over Romney Obama vs. Romney on Civil Liberties By Tom Head, About.com Guide Barack Obama and Mitt Romney represent very different agendas on Civil Liberties issues. While it is possible that the Republican Party of 2016 may produce a nominee with a better Civil Liberties platform, the Party of 2012 - influenced by the regressive and nationalistic Tea Party Movement - has a radically authoritarian agenda. 1. The Supreme Court. The chair of Mitt Romney's Judicial Advisory Committee is the notorious Robert Bork, who was rejected by the U.S. Senate in 1987 due to his radical Christian Dominionist beliefs. Ted Kennedy's famous "Robert Bork's America" speech outlines the policy priorities of Bork, who has been specifically cited by Romney as a model for the sort of Supreme Court justices he intends to appoint. When the next presidential term ends in January 2017, Ruth Bader Ginsburg will be 83 years old, Anthony Kennedy will be 80, and Stephen Breyer will be 79. If even one of these ...
First, let me address any of you who are Democrats. Today’s Democratic Party is “not your grandfather’s Democratic Party”. There are many good people who have been life-long Democrats, but the Party has been hijacked by the extreme, Godless, radical left. Hence, the debacle over the Party’s platform, in an effort to remove any mention of God. Put your values and beliefs side by side with the Democratic platform and see if they match up. Is their platform the standard by which you want your country run? Now, to the Libertarians. This election is too critical to try to make a statement by wasting your vote on a non-electable candidate. Ron Paul and your party have made your points, several of which have been well-received by the Republican Party, especially regarding the Federal Reserve. However, on November 7th, either Barack Obama or Mitt Romney will be the next President of the United States. Which would you rather have? Next, I’m concerned that some folks say they can’t vote for Romney bec ...
In the election of 1928, the Republican Party of Herbert Hoover promised voters "a chicken in every pot and a car in every backyard." (We all know how that turned out.) Now, Mitt Romney is pledging that "If I'm President" every college graduate will be guaranteed a job, Iran will have no nuclear weapons and the United States will dominate the 21st century. And when Romney isn't making fantastic promises about what he'll do when he gets to the White House, he's slandering the current occupant, Barack Obama. "I Won't Let Iran Get Nukes" Governor Romney's guarantees start with Iran and its nuclear program. In a November 10, 2011 op-ed in the Wall Street Journal, Romney pledged, "I won't let Iran get nukes." Or as he put it 10 days earlier during a GOP national security debate: "If we re-elect Barack Obama, Iran will have a nuclear weapon. If you elect me as president, Iran will not have a nuclear weapon." As to how he'll ensure that outcome, Romney explained that "If you want peace, prepare for war." And des ...
I would add but 6 words to those above mentioned, Conservatives, Libertarians, the Republican Party and Mitt Romney, to say "and we the American people," must also come to grips with this moment in time and our role in denying Barack Obama his life long goal of "transforming" us into his slaves working on his government plantation. Please forward this to all you can, maybe together we can save America for ourselves and those who will follow after us. May God Bless America, Steve McCann May 12, 2012
"Congressional historians said Mr. Boehner's move was unprecedented." A month before Senate Republicans blocked Barack Obama’s popular jobs bill, that’s how the New York Times described Speaker John Boehner's refusal to grant the President's request for a September 7 address to joint session of Congress to present the American Jobs Act. As it turns out, "unprecedented" is apt description for almost every boulder in the stone wall of Republican obstructionism Barack Obama has faced from the moment he took the oath of office. From the GOP's record-setting use of the filibuster and its united front against Obama's legislative agenda to blocking judicial nominees and its admitted hostage-taking of the U.S. debt ceiling, the Republican Party has broken new ground in its perpetual quest to ensure that Barack Obama will be a one-term president.
As a member of the Republican Party and friend to many conservatives, I have heard more than my share of questions about when will black people "get over" the legacy of slavery, racism and Jim Crow. My answer: Never! Like my Jewish brothers and sisters say about the Holocaust, I, for one, will never forget. By saying never, I don't mean to dismiss the notion that racial progress is predicated upon good will among all races. But with few exceptions, blacks on a whole have never attacked or sought to marginalize whites in America from a political or social standpoint, in large part because we have lacked the ability to do just that. I say these things in my anger at the right wing comments from pundits who have pulled out a speech that then candidate Barack Obama made at Hampton University in 2007. In the speech, the president slammed the federal response to Hurricane Katrina by recounting how swiftly federal funds were earmarked after Hurricane Andrew slammed Miami in '92 and after New York City following ...
It bring near the hour of the elections here in United States: Latin, the hour is fence to do to swallow him all the lies to the Republican Party, alleging that Barack Obama is the guilty one of the economic crisis in United States. Everyone knows that the problem arose when the x-President George Bush gave the option to the American, dream (American Dream in which any person can reach the liberty and the equality of wealth in the United States of North America), giving them t to the Real State to swindle to the unwary thirsty of having its own house. The Real State, organized income tax fraudulent by x quantity to favor the credit of each one of the unwary, and in complicity with the apprises (persons dedicated to put value monetary to the house and that they give the report to the bank so that it be approved the loan to the buyer, also in the Banks there was an employee that approve the lend. And also they had high percentage of the fraud. Also here in Miami florida there is Hispanic persons, whom th ...
Watching "Meet The Press" while preparing for church. Do not get it twisted. This Presidential Election has racial undertones, again. On this program, the Republican guest who is part of the round table discussion casually called our President "a liar". Republicans have already let it be known through Mitch Mcconnell that thier job is to make sure that Barack Obama is a one term president and this was said just shortly after he was elected in his first term. They have blocked and fought practically every bill he has tried to pass. How can you get bipartisanship in Congress with the Republican attitude of not working with this man. No man is an island but the Republican Party with their Tea Party factor makes sure President Obama is cut off by water (Republicans) and sharks (Tea Party). He can do all the right things and they still do not give credit where credit is due. They will never publicly or privately acknowledge the good and positive things this man has accomplished during his presidency. He is ...

*** Morris An Election the Republicans Needed to Lose If ever there was an election that was not worth winning, it was the contest of 2008. While it was hard-fought on both sides, had John Mccain won, it might have spelled the end of the Republican Party. As it is, the party is well-situated to come back in 2010 and in 2012, if it learns the lessons of this year. Simply put, all *** is about to break loose in the markets and the economy. The mortgage crisis will likely be followed by defaults in credit card debt, student loans and car loans. We will probably be set for two years of zero growth, according to economists with whom I talk. And the federal efforts to protect the nation from the worst of the recession will probably lead to huge budget deficits and resulting inflation. We are in for stagflation that could last for years. Had McCain won, he would be the latter-day Herbert Hoover, blamed for the disaster that unfolded on his watch. Now it is Barack Obama's problem. With the Republicans suffering . ...
Who will be there to enforce the rule of law, a Supreme Court ruling or the Constitution? No one. Barack Obama and his fellow-travelers will be unchallenged as they run roughshod over the American people. Many Republicans and conservatives dissatisfied with the prospect of Mitt Romney as the nominee for president are instead focused on re-taking the House and Senate. That goal, while worthy and necessary, is meaningless unless Barack Obama is defeated . The nation is not dealing with a person of character and integrity but someone of single-minded purpose and overwhelming narcissism. Judging by his actions, words and deeds during his first term, he does not intend to work with Congress, either Republican or Democrat in his second term but rather to force his radical agenda on the American people through the power he has usurped or been granted. The governmental structure of the United States was set up by the founders in the hope that over the years only those people of high moral character and integrity ...
Someone tell me whether the Republicans are signaling that they intend to cut income taxes for the wealthiest by raising them on the middle and low income if they take the Congress and White House. Many Republicans are continuing to defend Mitt Romney’s recent outed comment about 47 percent of Americans (presumably those that don’t have to pay federal income tax) backing Barack Obama partly due to having a “victim mentality.” Rep. Eric Cantor, House Majority Leader, recently said that all Americans should pay some sort of income tax, so they have “skin in the game.” At the same time, Speaker of the House John Bohner is saying he won’t allow the so-called Bush tax cuts on those making more than $250,000 a year to expire, and that he’d like to see more cuts for those with the highest incomes. On one side of the Republican Party, there’s talk about instituting income taxes on some; on the other side reducing them for others.
Options I love it when I wake up in the morning and Barack Obama is President. As if to underscore Mitt Romney's indifference to the 47 percent, his Republican Party colleagues in the US Senate used a procedural vote Wednesday to block a $1 billion bipartisan bill that would have given tens of thousands of jobless military vets the opportunity to work. Inspired by President Obama's State of the Union Address challenge to get veterans working, the Veterans Job Corps bill would have created a program to fast-track 20,000 former service members into federal jobs as law enforcement officers, first responders, and parks workers. The legislation "was one of the few pieces of legislation [to] make it through Congress, which has been mired in partisan gridlock for the last two years," reports Stars & Stripes' Leo Shane. A few enthusiastic Republicans even added several provisions to the bill, including measures to increase internet access for job-seeking vets and to aid them in their transitions from military lif ...
What's funny is that no one seem to notice that Bush and Obama works for the same bank, no one seem to notice that neither party gives a ratt about us...Obama is no different, he is just granting us a slower death...This government is not the people's government, it belongs to the Federal Reserve BANK...No matter who you think you're voting for, they will never work for you.And for the record, Bush did bail out the Banks.. as a lame duck because that happened in the last months of his presidency around October..Nancy Palosi along with congress made that move against the people wishes...How soon we forget That John Mccain and President Obama were on the same pg in assisting the Bailout Also on September 24, 2008, Republican Party nominee for President, John Mccain, and Democratic Party nominee for President, Barack Obama, issued a joint statement describing their shared view that "The effort to protect the American economy must not fail."[33]Protests opposing the bailout occurred in over 100 cities across ...
Libertarian Party presidential nominee and former New Mexico Governor Gary Johnson has for the first time publicly acknowledged attempts at keeping him of the ballots in November’s Presidential Election. In an interview with The Daily Beast, Gov. Johnson accused the Republican Party and his rival, Gov. Mitt Romney, of using litigation to prevent his name from appearing on the ballots in November. “The Republicans are behind this… Republican lawyers in suits getting well paid are taking on our volunteer lawyers over the most obscure objections you’ve ever heard. I don’t get it. Mitt Romney should have nothing to fear from me. But apparently he does, since they are spending a lot of resources trying to keep me off the ballot. I have no knowledge of Barack Obama spending any money to do anything to me. It’s completely the Republicans.” Gov. Johnson added that internal polls show him taking away votes from Gov. Romney in North Carolina and Michigan, two key battleground states. He also claims to ...
Forbes magazine's CEO and editor-in-chief Steve Forbes has predicted that Mitt Romney will be US president in January 2013...and he's already calling Barack Obama "ex-president!" Needless to say, he was twice a candidate for the nomination of the Republican Party for president in the past...
Giovanni Montelli - Republican's main goal is not recovery, not the economy, not the millions of families hurt by their policies, not the millions without adequate, affordable healthcare, not the millions of baby boomers now entering retirement and depending on Social Security and Medicaid to get them by; they are only concerned with ending the Presidency of Barack Obama, so they can continue the b.s. they begun under Bush, but this time, doubling down on those disastrous policies. In a March 2009 letter from the CBO on the estimates of the Recovery Act on the economy long run, to Senator Chuck Grassley, as requested by him, the CBO shows growth in GDP and in employment, as has been the case the past 25 + months, with the Democrats and the Obama administration's policies creating over 4.5 million jobs. Grassley is one of the main obstructionists in the Republican party against the President. I guess the CBO projections was too much for him, because he or any other Republican sure hasn't talked about this ...
This is from the Tuesday before the 2008 election McCain warned that Obama would bankrupt the coal industry! Nick Juliano John Mccain's campaign has apparently decided its last, best hope to defy the odds and prevail Tuesday lies in a distorted, out-of-context, months-old clip of Barack Obama talking about coal. McCain has claimed Obama wants to "bankrupt" the coal industry, based on a clip from a January interview with the San Francisco Chronicle's editorial board. The clip was posted online by the same YouTube user who last month unearthed and heavily edited a 2001 clip of Obama speaking to Chicago Public Radio. This time, the coal clip followed the same path to prominence as the previous mini-scandal: from YouTube, to right-wing blog, to the Drudge Report, to Fox News to McCain stump speech. Obama was discussing his support for a cap & trade system to reduce carbon emissions, which would create a market on which companies could trade emissions credits. Such a system, proponents say, would reduce pollut ...

I am so sick & tired of all the liberal trolls who come on this board each and every day & say the exact same thing day-in and day-out: - "Its all the Republican's fault" - "They've fought Obama every step of the way" - "The Republicans are keeping him from fixing things." - - Yadda, yadda, friggn, yadda.

Black Americans are thriving in today's Republican Party. Whatever you may think of the job that Barack Obama has done as President, it is still unquestionably a big deal for America to have its first black President. That being said, the GOP hasn't been standing still in that department either. Michael Steele was the first black Republican National Committee chairman. Tim Scott and Allen West were both elected to Congress, in majority white districts, last year. West is so popular that he was the keynote speaker at CPAC, the biggest conservative conference of the year. Their election came on the heels of George W. Bush appointing the first AND second black Secretary of State, Colin Powell and Condi Rice. Walter Williams is a fill-in host for the most popular conservative talk radio host in America, Rush Limbaugh. Thomas Sowell was voted the single most liked conservative in America in 2010 AND 2011 by conservative bloggers. Incidentally, second place in 2011 was Allen West. If the question is, "Can black ...
6 Right-Wing Zealots and the Crazy Ideas Behind the Most Outrageous Republican Platform Ever August 28, 2012 | TAMPA, FLA. -- The official 2012 Republican Party platform is a far-right fever dream, a compilation of pouting, posturing and policies to meet just about every demand from the overlapping Religious Right, Tea Party, corporate, and neo-conservative wings of the GOP. If moderates have any influence in today’s Republican Party, you wouldn’t know it by reading the platform. Efforts by a few delegates to insert language favoring civil unions, comprehensive sex education and voting rights for the District of Columbia, for example, were all shot down. Making the rounds of right-wing pre-convention events on Sunday, Rep. Michele Bachmann gushed [3] about the platform’s right-wing tilt, telling fired-up Tea Partiers that “the Tea Party has been all over that platform.” Given the Republican Party’s hard lurch to the right, which intensified after the election of Barack Obama, the “most cons ...

In excerpts released by the campaign in advance of his speech, Romney recalled the "fresh excitement about the possibilities of a new president" four years ago and said that President Obama's "promises gave way to disappointment and division." "So here we stand. Americans have a choice, A decision. To make that choice, you need to know more about me and where I will lead our country," Romney is expected to say. This is likely the most important speech of his campaign. He is also expected to say: ...

Read this carefully: If you've seen any coverage of Paul Ryan's speech in Tampa, you know that the consensus among journalists and independent observers is that it was ... factually challenged. He lied about Medicare. He lied about the Recovery Act. He lied about the deficit and debt. He even dishonestly attacked Barack Obama for the closing of a GM plant in his hometown of Janesville, Wisconsin -- a plant that closed in December 2008 under George W. Bush. He also failed to offer one constructive idea about what he would do to move the country forward. The Republican party wants to take the same direction that the country took in 2000, that ended up being the second biggest recession in U.S.A's history. Do we really want to go back to that?
current media spin and more reasons why "only conservatives are racists": ABC: (While the President is on the campaign trail himself raising money) ' In video broadcast Monday night by ABC over the internet, an ABC News employee can be heard claiming that GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney and his wife Ann are unconcerned about the fate of residents of the New Orleans area who are currently being hit by Hurricane Isaac. “They aren’t concerned at all,” the person says on tape. “They are happy to have a party when black people drown.” ' NBC: "While NBC has the resources to embed videos of EVERY speech from last night, it decided to judge which ones were "notable." Wouldn't you know it, the speech of Artur Davis -- the former Democratic congressman from Alabama who seconded Barack Obama's nomination for the presidency at the Democratic convention in 2008 -- was not included in the list." MSNBC: "One of the left’s favorite attacks on the Republican Party is that it is the party of old white ...
Hum.Smart Man...I I just listened to this man on the RNC .Artur Davis is an American politician and attorney who changed his party affiliation from the Democratic to the Republican Party in 2012. Davis served in the United States House of Representatives representing Alabama's 7th Congressional District from 2003 to 2011. Davis was an early supporter of Barack Obama's 2008 bid for the presidency, and one of the national co-chairs for Obama's 2008 campaign. Known for his oratorical skills, Davis made one of the nominating speeches for Obama at the 2008 Democratic National Convention. While serving on the House Ways and Means Committee, Davis was the first African American member of Congress to advocate that then-Committee Chairman Charles Rangel surrender his gavel in the wake of ethics charges. In 2009 and 2010 Davis voted against the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, the only member of the Congressional Black Caucus to do so. Beginning in 2009, Davis sought to become Alabama's first African Ame ...

Politicians still hold back-room meetings, especially in connection with their parties' presidential nominating conventions. Such meetings have been at a fever pitch in Tampa as Republicans plan to gather there next week to officially name Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan as their challengers to Barack Obama and Joe Biden. But the folks gathered in advance of the Aug. 27 Republican National Convention aren't talking about candidates. They're hammering out the GOP's 2012 party platform. And one popular item missing from this version of the party's core principles is absolute support for the mortgage interest tax deduction. The thinking is that by refusing to put the Republican Party on record for keeping the popular home-related tax break on the books, Romney will have more flexibility in his tax plan. Romney's general idea is to lower individual and corporate tax rates but in a revenue-neutral way; that is, without increasing the federal debt. But he's been a bit fuzzy on how to achieve that fiscal goal.
I winder when ODUMBA is going to fie this *** BULL *** Asked About the Big Sis Sexual Harassment Scandal? August 21, 2012 BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: Here, grab audio sound bite number eight.

Two months without taking substantive questions from his own stenographers. He's been talking to People Magazine, Entertainment Tonight, but his own stenographers' feelings were hurt. He won't come out and talk to 'em. So Akin says what he says Sunday in St. Louis, and Obama says, (imitating Obama) "You know what, I'm gonna go out, I'm gonna talk to press." And it was yesterday at the White House, the press briefing, Obama dropped in, spoke with his stenographers, and Jim Kuhnhenn, AP, said, "You're no doubt aware the comments made by Todd Akin.

Axelrod, GOP leaders spar over Ryan on Sunday morning talk shows By Dylan Stableford, Yahoo! News | The Ticket – 3 hrs ago Ryan and Romney on the campaign plane en route to Charlotte (Justin Sullivan/Getty) Mitt Romney's selection of Paul Ryan as his Vice Presidential running mate dominated the discussion on Sunday morning's political talk shows. And the reaction to the choice of Ryan, a Tea Party favorite, fell along party lines. David Axelrod, senior adviser to the Obama campaign, appeared on ABC, NBC and CNN to curb the GOP enthusiasm. "It is a pick that is meant to thrill the most strident voices in the Republican Party," Axelrod told Stephanopoulos. "But it's one that should trouble everybody else, the middle class, seniors, students, because of Ryan's record. I mean, he is a right-wing ideologue, the intellectual energy behind the Republican caucus there in Congress. He constructed a budget that, like Romney, would lavish trillions of dollars of tax cuts, most of them on the wealthy, would raise ...
Sharing a superb commentary by my friend Sandy Schopbach: _ On This Week with George Stephanopoulos news program today, Reince Priebus (Chairman of the Republican National Committee, so head of the Republican Party) said - and I quote - "This President (i.e. Barack Obama) has a problem with the American Dream." He said this because Obama is trying to end the Bush tax cuts that favor the wealthy and is basically campaigning against the "trickle down" economic theory. I do not understand. Who, pray tell, exemplifies more the American Dream than Barack Obama? He started out as a poor-to-lower-middle-class, mixed race child. His parents divorced and he didn't know his father practically at all. He was partially raised by his grandparents. He made it through college and then into and through Harvard. He is now the President of what is said to be the most powerful country on the face of the Earth, the United States of America. How much more American Dream - pull yourself up by your bootstraps - can you GET?! WH ...
Exposing Obama would reveal the depth of US Government corruption 13.07.2012 By Lawrence Sellin The solution for the United States is not to elect more "good" people to government because they are quickly co-opted and compromised by the corrupt political system. It may sound cynical, but the solution is to make it politically advantageous for bad people to do the right thing. It is not now politically advantageous for either the Democrat or the Republican Party to tell the truth about Barack Obama; that he is an illegal President and very likely a felon, who has a forged birth certificate, a forged Selective Service registration and is using a Social Security Number not issued to him. Both parties are steadfastly protecting Obama to protect their investment in the corrupt political Status Quo. The formula is simple. To keep themselves permanently in office, members of Congress collect taxes nationwide, they then use the proceeds to repay wealthy financiers with tax loopholes or government loans and buy co ...
"What Ron Paul is doing is right now is far more important than what Mitt Romney or Barack Obama are doing. Ron Paul is changing the Republican Party in a way that promises to bear political fruit for decades to come… We have elections every few years. We have very few revolutions during our lifetime. No doubt, the Tampa convention will be a coronation for Mitt Romney. This is fine. But it will also be the most high profile demonstration to date to mainstream America that the Republican Party is becoming the party of Ron Paul. And Rand Paul. And Justin Amash. And Thomas Massie. And beyond. It is this movement that stands ready to define what it means to be a Conservative Republican for the next 25 years, 50 years and then some. Ron Paul will not be president. He will instead go down in history, if not this year, in future years, as the man who redefined what future Republican presidents will be. What the party will be…"
2011 MSM Mocks Glenn Beck's prediction about Egypt, from PBS' Newshour: MARK SHIELDS, SYNDICATED COLUMNIST: Well, I think it is a lack of self-confidence, surefootedness. They didn`t know what they wanted to say. They weren`t sure. The only one who was really critical that I saw was Rick Santorum, the former senator from Pennsylvania, who basically took the line that has been developed by both Sean Hannity and Glenn Beck. And that was that the -- Barack Obama, by not supporting Hosni Mubarak in his hour of need, was turning his back on a great ally. And that -- that became the position. But there was nobody there really celebrating the moment of freedom and taking that, picking up that banner.

Tim Comilitio: In 2008, Barack Obama pledged to raise the minimum wage every year once elected, but the hourly rate of $7.25 hasn’t increased since 2007. Low-wage workers now make far less than they did four decades ago. Illinois Democratic Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. introduced the Catching Up to 1968 Act of 2012. It draws its name from the idea that the federal minimum wage would be $10.55 an hour now if it had kept up with inflation over the past 40 years. Ralph Nader. "The U.S.’s federal minimum wage is lower than all Western countries," Nader says. "This is basically an issue that reflects the craven, cruel nature of the Republican Party on Capitol Hill, but it also reflects the caution, the cowardliness, the betrayal of the Democratic Party of its core constituency." .. In actuality, a living minimum wage in most US cities would be around $20 an hour. That is totally doable- that's the minimum wage in most Australian States.

Let us Pray ... First Book of Democrats Barack Obama is my shepherd, I shall not want. He leadeth me beside still factories. He restoreth my faith in the Republican Party. He guideth me in the path of unemployment. Yea, though I walk through the Valley of Bread Line, I shall not go hungry. Obama has anointed my income with taxes. My expenses runneth over my income. Surely, poverty and hard living will follow me all the days of my life. The Democrats and I will live in a rented house forever. But, I am glad I am an American. I am glad I am free. But I wish I was a dog, and Barack Obama was a tree. AMEN
And now, something political. According to CNN, President Obama said that Mitt Romney's time as CEO of Bain does anything but qualify him for the Oval Office. Am I the only person who remembers or cares that the citizens of Illinois elected Obama to serve them as their Senator for 6 years, a job that he quit after only two years so that he could run for President. Obama jumped from a 1/3 term Senator to a Presidential candidate. Why? What were his qualifications for President? Oh, yeah. I almost forgot. He was a "community organizer" and a Constitutional Law professor. I know what his main qualification was. It was a very strong desire to be America's first black President. And he was back by a lot of rich (and black) people as well as poor black people. Heck, he even got one of the Republican Party's main black figures to jump ship and switch sides. Yeah, I'm looking at you Colin Powell. I don't consider Barack Obama to be the first black President. I consider him the first non-white President ...
Something to think about.In November the two names on the ballot for President will say Barack Obama and Mitt Romney.There will be no surprises on how either will govern.One thing is for sure our system of checks and balances will stand as it has since 1776.But for those with short memories.Will the women of our great nation forget the struggle and hard won battle to full citizenship.Will African Americans forget the struggles of lynchings,murder of many like Medgar Evers or the three young men,one black two jewish,buried in the red dirt of Mississippi,Bull Conner,marches while being attacked by police with billy clubs,fireman's waterhose's,substandard schools,jobs,housing.While you are up in arms over a President and judging him like none before him nor his opponent.Ask yourself one question.What one positive thing that the Republican Party have done for African Americans or women.
Left to the devices of the Republican Party and its nominee, Barack Obama is a shoo-in for re-election, says Joseph Farah, editor and founder of WND.
Tony Perkins, president of the Family Research Council, a group opposed to abortion rights and *** marriage, said on “Face the Nation” that Obama’s *** marriage position will bolster Romney’s standing with evangelical voters who are part of the Republican Party base. “I think that Barack Obama has helped fit that missing piece of intensity that Mitt Romney’s going to need,” Perkins said. I GUESS EVEN EUNUCHS HAVE A RIGHT TO THEIR OPINIONS
Bill Maher: It is astounding that as a nation, the United States is in a position where the validity of the concept of electing minorities to the highest office in the land is up for debate, but this is where a loud and vocal segment of the right has chosen to make their last stand. Make no mistake about it, 2012 is their last stand. Republicans understand that their behavior and positions on African-Americans, Hispanics, and women will make very difficult for the party to win a Presidential Election if Barack Obama wins in 2012. There will be no “novelty” excuse for the right if Obama wins reelection. If Obama is able to win a second term powered by a coalition of young voters, African-Americans, women, Hispanics, and other minorities, it will signal the official demise of the small tent angry white man Republican Party. The nomination of Mitt Romney makes perfect sense when viewed from this perspective. Romney is the walking, talking, living, breathing embodiment of angry conservative white male pri ...
