I'd guess a union driver had to make the delivery. Just like the union prevented electricians and other utility workers from other areas working in NY after the storm. The non-union workers from other states were diverted to other states. Thousands in NY have been without power since Oct 30, and a lack of manpower for repairs is partly to blame.

But hey! New Yorkers love unions who love Obama.

If someone spoke about your daughter this way, what would be your response?

Do you follow this young woman and her friends around with a video camera? Do you even know she actually traveled to Mexico at all, or have you simply pulled all this filth out of tabloid news and your own anus?

Everything is shot to shit now that ya'll got to pay a lil bit more, but ya'll were quiet as a church mouse when the middle class to poor were in over their heads due to tongan policies. Obama is bringing in a sense of equality to this country. Ya'll white folks had the game rigged from the beginning. It's time to level the paying field. Oh & for your info, he & his policies don't do nothing for me. But I'm conscience enough to know it ain't all about me!
When will Obama level the unemployment figure for blacks? What is it now? 16%?

The Real GOP Fiasco: Fairness

Bill Kristol, for once, is right. The Bush tax cuts for the rich have to go.

The election is barely over, but true to form, Mitch McConnell and John Boehner have already bungled the next one. Their line in the sand is exactly the wrong way to recast the GOP’s appeal to minorities, women, and working-class whites.

Look at the data. Exit polls showed that voters largely agreed that Romney was a “strong leader” and “had a vision for the future.” But as AEI’s Henry Olsen notes,“Romney lost because he lost among those who chose the remaining characteristic – by 63 points, 81-18. That characteristic? Cares about people like me.”(The exit polls do not include the nine million white voters who showed their opinion by not voting at all.)

Having lost two national elections in which the Bush tax cuts were at issue, the GOP Congressional leadership now seems determined to dig the ditch deeper.

http://www.theamericanconservative.com/the-re...

The Republican Party can appeal to “Judeo-Christian values” as long as the sun shines and their voices hold out. But they’ve abandoned the most basic moral value of all: fairness. America is supposed to be the land of opportunity. But tell that to minorities, to single women, to working-class whites. Even 44 percent of voters who earn over $200,000 a year voted for Obama, the candidate who promised to raise their taxes.

Perhaps McConnell and Boehner have taken their stand on principle. Or perhaps they are still scared of Grover Norquist. Perhaps they truly believe – in contrast to three decades worth of evidence and a recent study by their own Congressional Budget Office – that lower tax rates on the rich actually produce jobs. Or perhaps they’re just waiting for the kind of face-saving compromise Galupo has suggested (and the president is now unlikely to approve). Or perhaps they’re just not very bright.

The reasons don’t really matter. The results are what matter. And they got the results on November 6.

The GOP can recruit candidates with Hispanic surnames, tone down its platform, prep its members on talking points, and try to duplicate the Obama turnout machine. But if it remains the party of entrenched unfairness, it will never win another national election.

Yes, what Obama should say is: I need to do more for the black folks.

I'd love to see the FOX reaction to that one.

If I had a 13-year-old child he/she would not be allowed to go to Mexico or anywhere else for a weekend of drugs, booze and sex. The story is true. Judicial Watch is suing the Obamas for reimbursement. Just google it (if you know how how to do that).

I agree. The "bump in the road" known as Benghazi was nothing more than "a random act of workplace violence". How can we expect the president to concentrate on planning his vacation in Asia with all these distractions. And I wish the people in the storm ravaged northeast would quit bitchin' about their situation too. People lived for many centuries without power or gasoline and they did just fine. Hey northeast disaster victims, JUST SUCK IT UP!!

Romneycare didn't raise taxes in Massachusetts because the federal government picked up half the cost, thanks to Ted Kennedy.
You remember Ted Kennedy? The former Governor of Massachusetts? The socialist democrat who preceded Barack Obama?
Where is the federal government going to get those same funds?
Did I hear you say "from the taxpayers"? Because that's exactly right.
Carol the mandate was what was the tax. Romney's mandate would also be a tax.
