Grand or otherwise, there's no bargaining with these Republicans
The elections are over, the celebrations and recriminations will run their courses, and soon we will return to discussions, debates and battles over policy. The fiscal cliff looms. Sequestration comes soon. We are about to hear a lot about budgets and deficits and spending cuts, but Democrats must not allow the very political and economic dynamics that played such a key role in the party's electoral rout to be forgotten or trivialized by a misplaced focus on the false political and economic narratives that should into those dynamics be subsumed. The economic recovery appears to be real, but it is still very fragile. It is not time to play 1937 again. The focus must be on creating jobs and growing the economy. Deficits must be a lower and longer term priority. Budget cuts and deficit fever do not create jobs or grow the economy. In the latter months of 2011, the Occupy Movement changed the political and economic narrative in this country, including in Congress and by the White House. An Obama administration that had foundered during the budget and fiscal showdowns was rejuvenated as it reconnected with the Democratic Party's economic roots. By refocusing on income inequality and jobs creation, the president and Congressional Democrats were able to seize the economic narrative, both by emphasizing that the Obama stimulus had saved the economy while creating over 3 million jobs, and by drawing a clear contrast with the Republicans when attempting to pass a new jobs creating stimulus which the Republicans in Congress killed. Sometimes losing a principled legislative fight creates the opportunity for political triumph and ultimate legislative victory. But such opportunities must not be missed or such victories will be lost.
By now it should be clear to everyone that President Obama is by nature a conciliator. Every president and every presidential candidate gives lip service to the idea of working across the aisle, but when President Obama speaks it, he means it. It's part of who he is. He wants to believe the best about people, because he has the quiet confidence to believe the best about himself. He does believe that this nation is best when the sum of its disparate parts add up to a greater whole because his entire personal history has been proof that the sum of disparate parts can become a greater whole. But the people with whom President Obama wants to work, with the best intentions for the common good, do not themselves have good intentions, either toward him or the common good.
<quoted text> Is it just my imagination or is your source for everything the same; this www.westernjournalism.com . How exactly do you determine if THEY are telling the truth? Now that I know that Obama controls all media in our country, how does this site escape the despotic rule of Obama?
I get my information from many places but I like to use Western Journalism as my front source. It hasn't been wrong yet.
If you would have opened the website you would have seen some of your favorite people such as Smell O'Reily and Tingle Leg Mathews. After all I am open minded unlike some people on this thread.
In answer to your question. How do they get away with telling the truth?
<quoted text> Ok, that's fine and dandy, but suppose that some people interpret God's word differently, or worship a different god, or even don't believe in God? Aren't they entitled to their own beliefs? This is my beef with the religious right - instead of leaving others to make their own decisions you try to force people to follow your beliefs. If I follow your line of thought, all Americans should be free to only follow the laws of our country that they believe works with their faith and their God. In fact, one could argue that your statement gives Muslims a right to terrorist activities because their God demands it.
I'm trying to "enlighten" people to God's Word. NOT trying to ram it down ANYone's throat!
Damn, another Fracking Earth Quake. The Earth is mad at us.
6.2 earthquake strikes off Guatemala's coast GUATEMALA CITY (AP)— A 6.2-magnitude earthquake shook Guatemala's Pacific coastline on Sunday, four days after a major quake killed dozens in the Central American country. People fled buildings and homes in panic in various cities along Guatemala's Pacific coastline near its border with Mexico on Sunday, but there were no immediate reports of deaths or major damages. The U.S. Geological Survey said the quake was centered 180 kilometers (112 miles) west-southwest of Guatemala City, off the country's coast, and had a depth of 29 kilometers (18 miles). Seismologists say it was the strongest aftershock yet from a 7.4-magnitude earthquake that killed 52 people in western Guatemala on Wednesday. That quake, the country's strongest in 36 years, left thousands of people without homes, electricity or water; and emotionally devastated one small town by wiping out almost an entire family. http://news.yahoo.com/6-2-earthquake-strikes-...

You guys are great! I didn't believe that anyone could be so taken in by conspiracy theories - but I was wrong.
<quoted text> You didn't respond to my previous post on this petition. 1) There is no mechanism in place in law for a national recount as voting is administered and controlled by the individual states (remember "states rights"?) 2) There is no evidence of any need to recount - most of the voter suppression was by the Republicans, in fact. You lost. The America people have spoken. They didn't want Romney and his lies and said so in no uncertain terms. According to Karl Rove, 332 electoral votes qualifies as a landslide. America WANTS women to be able to make their own choices, and wants blacks, gays and Latinos to be free of the Republican racism. You lost. Big time. It is over. Done. Give it and form your own political party and try again in 2014 or 2016.

Breaking: Florida Showing Massive Voter Fraud November 11, 2012
Many elections may not quite be settled just yet and this may open an entire can of worms across the country. Only one precinct had less than 113% turnout. The unofficial vote count is 175,554 registered voters 247,713 vote cards cast (141.10%). The National SEAL Museum, a St. Lucie county polling place, had 158.85% voter turn out, the highest in the county. When asked about the 141% Supervisor of Elections Gertrude Walker stated, "They may have had something like that in Palm Beach County, but we've never seen that here."

You make me feel better about not completing high school But did you not say that university graduates often have less intelligence? And therefore less common sense? You gotta make up your mind.
Jacques Itch, you are totally Fk'ed up! I responded to your remark about not finishing high school. I never said that college graduates have less intelligence, I said that they have less common sense. Hence, This explains why you have no common sense. Glad you cleared that up for us.

Apples and Oranges. A greater percentage of Republicans voted for the Civil Rights Act than did Democrats.
The original House version: Democratic Party: 152–96 (61–39%) Republican Party: 138–34 (80–20%)
Cloture in the Senate: Democratic Party: 44–23 (66–34%) Republican Party: 27–6 (82–18%)
Americans are being systematically targeted and murdered by the Obama Administration on suspicions alone and without respect to Due Process of Law. There is no trial by jury and no appeal, just an execution that is carried out by agents of the US Government on orders of the President.
An “extrajudicial killing” is defined as the killing of a person by government authorities without any judicial proceedings or sanctioned legal process. It is by definition unlawful, as it bypasses the Due Process of Law in the jurisdiction in which it is carried out in. When President Obama ordered the deaths of Anwar al-Awlaki and Samir Khan for suspected terrorist activities, he conspired in the unlawful murder of American Citizens. These men, both Americans, were summarily executed along with others without any respect for the Law.
There is no question that Barack Obama conspired to commit the murders of Americans. Not only has he admitted his role in the deaths of these Americans, he has defended his participation in these unlawful acts against these Americans, deeming them a threat to the United States. All Americans are at risk of “extrajudicial killing” if and when they are deemed a threat to the United States. Any citizen of this country may be put to death without Due Process of Law upon orders of Barack Obama. To protect Americans from wanton murder at the hands of government agents , the Chairman of the Judiciary Committee, Congressman Lamar Smith, must propose a Resolution calling for the Judiciary Committee to begin a formal inquiry into the issue of impeaching Barack Obama for the crime of murder.
This is the only way for our elected officials to prove that no one is above the Rule of Law.

I heard that they mailed in a ballot before the election day and then they also went and voted on election day. That could be the reason for the long lines and why they had to wait so long.

It is a straw argument. He assumes any governor controls county elections which none do. The long lines were caused but a greater number of Liberals voting. We had 13 state constitutional initiatives. I read all thirteen over the internet and had made a cheat-sheet on how I would vote. It took me ten minutes to vote once I got to the polling station whereas the typical Libtard would take over an hour. You would have thought the Democrat Party bosses would have had their own cheat-sheets made up to hand out to their voters.
