The guy the Republican opponent called "failed," "corrupt," "liberal," and an "Obama rubber stamp" responsible for "high taxes," "violent crime," "expensive failing schools," and "14 percent unemployment" WON. LMAO. It's a sign of things to come.
The good people of Vermont probably saw Gov. Christie kiss Obama's royal butt for simply doing what any president would have done after a devastating storm - especially this president before an election and the perfect opportunity to get some great photo ops.

Vermont is also historically a blue state.

A more accurate number to measure U.S. unemployment is the U-6 rate, which counts total unemployed, all individuals marginally attached to the labor force and total employed part-timers for economic reasons.

That number was a striking 13.9% in March.

So what did the Republican candidate get wrong rounding it up .1%?

It's only 27 percent...

"Bob Cosway, a principal and consulting actuary at Milliman Inc. in San Diego, estimated that the average individual premium in 2014 will rise 27% because of that difference alone."

Policy cancellations, higher premiums add to frustration over Obamacare
For many, their introduction to the Affordable Care Act has been negative: a broken website, and now cancellation notices from insurance companies followed by sticker shock over higher prices for the new plans. It's directly at odds with repeated assurances from the president, who has said "if you like your insurance plan, you will keep it. No one will be able to take that away from you."
56-year-old Dianne Barrette. Last month, she received a letter from Blue Cross Blue Shield informing her as of January 2014, she would lose her current plan. Barrette pays $54 a month. The new plan she's being offered would run $591 a month -- 10 times more than what she currently pays.

The first Western eyewitness to the deadly Benghazi terror attacks has given an account of the seven-hour assault on the U.S. outpost in Libya and says Americans knew such an incident was inevitable.

The witness -- a former British soldier who for decades helped protect U.S. diplomats and military leaders -- told CBS’“60 Minutes” that Al Qaeda forces first attacked the U.S. Special Mission Compound in which Ambassador Christopher Stevens was killed.

polls are showing that 2/3 of Americans want O'bama, Hillary and the other liars aka democrats, to come clean about Benghazi. This was a random act of journalism by CBS--I bet they wish Logan was killed after she was raped by the O'bama moslems in Egypt.

Reminds me of the 'lean mean liberal machine' encouraging Americans to tattle tell on each other before the 2012 election...

...when Obama's re-election campaign urged Americans to report other Americans who are suspected of falsely criticizing this administration...

...and a website, AttackWatch.com , provided a link so viewers could "Report an attack" whether it came in the form of a public statement, a rumor or even a negative email...

Or did I just dream that?

Nope, guess I didn't.

Random poster...

Get out of the way Whitey!!!!!!!

"Maybe I’m just misinformed, but the key difference between German Fascism, Italian Fascism, and American whatever we have now that maybe is Communism, seems to be the target of the demotist appeals. In Germany (central Europe, history of industriousness and creativity), the appeal was “we’re the best, only those sneaky Jews could knock us off our pedestal.” Italy (the Med) got “we were the greatest empire ever, and we could be great again (just ignore how poorly this whole Ethiopian thing has gone).” America (multi-ethnic) gets “we could be the greatest ever, if conservative Whites would just get out of the way.” All three have the public-private incestuousness (General People’s Wagonmotors, etc.), the distinctly Communist-themed media strategies/appeals, and malignant nationalism. Am I missing something?"

Good answer. But their ideology and telling Americans other Americans want them to die and Americans who don't agree with the power elite deserve a burning cross KKK style comes from a place a bit more sinister.

But it's people like Realtime who worry me the most. He and they think Alan Grayson and his ilk are just what this country needs.

SUCK IT UP DEM VOTERS wrote:
WASHINGTON — Whether miffed over spying revelations or feeling sold out by U.S. moves in the Middle East, some of the United States’ closest allies are so upset that the Obama administration has gone into damage-control mode to ensure the rifts don’t widen and threaten critical partnerships.
The quarrels differ in their causes and degrees of seriousness. As a whole, however, they pose a new foreign policy headache for an administration whose overseas track record is seen in many quarters at home and abroad as reactive and lacking direction.
In Europe and the Middle East, rifts that once would’ve been quietly smoothed over have exploded into headlines and public remonstrations.
The uproar in Europe over revelations from fugitive former National Security Agency contractor Edward Snowden that the United States spied on as many as 35 government leaders, including Angela Merkel, the chancellor of Germany, has become so great that early Friday 28 European leaders said Merkel and French President Francois Hollande would open negotiations with the United States over a “no-spying agreement.”
In the Middle East, Saudi Arabia, already fed up with U.S. reluctance to get more deeply involved in the Syrian civil war, has become alarmed by Obama’s overtures to the Saudis’ archenemy, Iran, with which the Saudis are locked in a battle for regional supremacy. Reports indicate it is considering breaking over cooperation with the Obama administration on a range of issues, including training for so-called moderate Syrian rebels.

NOW SAY IT DEM
1 2 3 IT IS ALL BUSHES FAULT,DAMNIT
Ah, the Saudis' are upset because Obama isn't their hand puppet get "embroiled in the sectarian rivalries of the Middle East. Too bad, so sad. Obama is doing exactly what he was elected to do....follow a course of negotiation and end our military involvement in the "centuries-old rivalries" that exist in the Middle East.

The "spying" on our allies is overblown and a non-issue. Bush is no longer president. It certainly was no secret that under his espionage tactics, no one....including American citizens...had any expectation of privacy.

Funny to watch Republicans trying to calm the waters since realizing that the spying is a Bush issue.

Marco Rubio:“Everyone spies on everybody. These leaders are responding to domestic pressures. None of them are truly shocked about any of this.”
