David Petreus is an honorable man.
David Petreus served our nation faithfuly and well.
He made an error in judgement, a human failing.
Doesn't take away anything he's done to serve his nation.
You again prove you're no veteran, by slanderling American heroes.
And as far as I can tell, Petreus didn't drown anyone.

After its second defeat at the hands of Barack Obama, under whom unemployment has never been lower than the day George W. Bush left office, the Republican Party has at last awakened to its existential crisis.

Eighteen states have voted Democratic in six straight elections. Among the six are four of our most populous: New York, Pennsylvania, Illinois and California. And Obama has now won two of the three remaining mega-states, Ohio and Florida, twice.

Only Texas remains secure — for now.

At the presidential level, the Republican Party is at death’s door.

Yet one already sees the same physicians writing prescriptions for the same drugs that have been killing the GOP since W’s dad got the smallest share of the vote by a Republican candidate since William Howard Taft in 1912.

In ascertaining the cause of the GOP’s critical condition, let us use Occam’s razor — the principle that the simplest explanation is often the right one.

Would the GOP wipeout in those heavily Catholic, ethnic, socially conservative, blue-collar bastions of Pennsylvania, Michigan, Ohio and Illinois, which Richard Nixon and Ronald Reagan swept, have anything to do with the fact that the United States since 2000 has lost 6 million manufacturing jobs and 55,000 factories?

Where did all those jobs and factories go? We know where.

They were outsourced. And in the deindustrialization of America, the Republican Party has been a culpable co-conspirator.

Unlike family patriarch Sen. Prescott Bush, who voted with Barry Goldwater and Strom Thurmond against JFK’s free-trade deal, Bush I and II pumped for NAFTA, GATT, the WTO and opening America’s borders to all goods made by our new friends in the People’s Republic of China.

Swiftly, U.S. multinationals shut factories here, laid off workers, outsourced production to Asia and China, and brought their finished goods back, tax-free, to sell in the U.S.A.

Profits soared, as did the salaries of the outsourcing executives.

And their former workers? They headed for the service sector, along with their wives, to keep up on the mortgage payment, keep the kids in Catholic school and pay for the health insurance the family had lost.

Tuesday, these ex-Reagan Democrats came out to vote against some guy from Bain Capital they had been told in ads all summer was a big-time outsourcer who wrote in 2008,“Let Detroit Go Bankrupt!”

Yes, the simplest explanation is often the right one.

No, there's no cure for stupid Romney supporters like me. Don't you know? We're going to join that 47% of professional takers whenever and where ever we can. Hell, we're now going to retire younger than those Greeks.

Old career ambition: Work hard, build wealth, expand business and pull oneself up by bootstraps whenever we faced a challenge or setback.

New career ambition: "Do you want fries with that."

New language for Romney supporters, repeat after me:

"What time does the free clinic open?"

"I'm a victim of (fill in the blank.)"

"How do I get a free cell phone?"

"I'm not taking THAT job, I've got another 18 months of unemployment left."

Former Commerce Secretary Carlos Gutierrez, an adviser to former GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney on Latino outreach, said Sunday the candidate's failure with those voters was due to hardliners in the Republican party who were "scaring the heck out of them."
"The Hispanics I know were scared of the Republican party," he said on CNN's "State of the Union" in a blunt assessment of Romney's loss. "I think it has to do with our incredibly ridiculous primary process where we force people to say outrageous things, they get nominated, and they have to come back."
Gutierrez worked under former President George W. Bush, who won around 40 percent of the Latino vote in 2004 -- over 10 points more than Romney won this year. The Latino vote was a pivotal part of the 2012 election, and it is widely acknowledged that the Republican Party could be forever damaged if it can't win over more Latinos in the future.
He said extremists in the party were fully to blame for Romney's loss, pointing to "the anti-immigration talk, the xenophobes." "It's almost as if we are living in the past," he added.

Saw it__terrific show where both he and Huntsman put the smackdown on the nasty POS Gary Bauer__Guttierez actually waved a finger in that little schucks face as the show was ending.

The (R) party needs to divorce itself from the likes of Bauer, Reed and such if it plans a return to relevancy.

One more thing you are lying about I have never directed obscene comments at "silly". I have called her out when she lied. I have called her a hypocrite and a bigot for some of her stances. She offered he condolences about my daughters death. If "silly" has an ounce of decency she will point out that you are a liar.

There are serious economists who study the difference between what our states pay in taxes and how much they get in return from the U.S. government. These people generally don’t draw political, let along moral, judgments from these numbers.
I’m under no such constraint. The numbers, for decades now, have been quite clear: With some exceptions, what we regard as red states are sent a whole lot more of your hard-earned tax dollars than the traditional blue states. In effect, supposedly indolent,“tax and spend” liberals actually subsidize the individualistic, pure, and hard-working lifestyle of our conservative countrymen."
Be that as it may, consider the bare bones ideology of each party. One is dedicated 'compassionately', to provide for everyone under any circumstance. The other is dedicated to self reliance, thrift and accountability. Understanding the direction each inevitably leads, should prove my point. Dems couldn't exist without Republicans. We are your nemesis and your benefactor.

Now that we are in a nuclear war with the left, I know we (the owners of these companies and businesses) really hold the purse strings. We can choke off them off one job at a time. Cut hours, cut pay, cut benefits. Use more part time workers. Improve operations. Outsource. So let's have at it. Time to take back our companies. We can crush them by under employing them. I say let's 'Un' them. See how they enjoy a lesser existence under Obama.
