Barack Obama, our next President

"The road ahead will be long. Our climb will be steep," Obama cautioned. Young and charismatic but with little experience on the national level, Obama smashed through racial barriers and easily defeated ...

Partisan Journalists Are Following the Money All Too Literally

The right-wing media’s disconnect from reality in the 2012 election was fed by its financial dependence on the growing partisan economy.

Sifting through the wreckage of the 2012 election, conservatives are realizing the price of staying inside their cocoon. The unskewed polls, the partisan cheerleading and complaints about the MSM’s liberal bias, the rigid think-tank reinforcement—it all led the right into a state of denial about the election, and a disconnect from modern American culture.

Perhaps the most powerful driver of this galloping group-think? Money.

The rise of partisan media has created financial incentives for columnists, pundits, and pollsters to try and please ideological employers with pronouncements that resonate with the faithful. After all, nothing gets clicks like confirmation bias.

http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2012/11...

Dick Morris is a prime example of a partisan hack posing as a pollster and analyst, and as part of his mea culpa for publically predicting a landslide for Mitt Romney he essentially admitted to Sean Hannity that he was trying to create his own reality-distortion field:“There was a period of time when the Romney campaign was falling apart, people were not optimistic, nobody thought there was a chance of victory and I felt that it was my duty at that point to go out and say what I said.” This is a naked admission that his political analysis is little more than partisan propaganda —and yet what’s most striking is how dog-bites-man it seems, an acknowledgement of the obvious.

According to the web site Zillow, the White House is worth 283 million dollars. When Mitt Romney heard that he said, "You mean I could have just bought it."

Look beneath your bed tonight. Sean Hannity could be there planting a radioactive pile to slowly kill you in your sleep. Rush Limbaugh has probably poisoned your water supply and Sarah Palin is going to try seducing you in your sleep.
It's a jungle out there for paranoid Liberal conspiracy theorists.
Don't look in the mirror. There might be a conspiracy theorists in there coming to get you, too.
And the Weather Channel, which is owned by Bain Capital, caused hurricane Sandy to strike the east coast just before the election in order to suppress voter turnout. It was just another attempt by Republicans to disenfranchise black voters.

<quoted text> condoms 50cents. The pill $18 a month if your not capabable of funding your own sex life then keep you're pants on. If you don't want anyone to have any say over your actions then don't demand others pay for the results of your actions.
You need a doctor's appointment to get a prescription for the pill. Not all women can take the pill & require other, more expensive routes.

And here you are, now putting an income level before a person can have sex.

The point is not "should", the point is to make contraception more available.

More available means fewer abortions.

But there you go again, being too stupid to know that these are related.

Fast and Furious was Eric Holder's fault. Benghazi was Hillary Clinton's fault. The Petraeus scandal was the FBI's fault. That's why he's known as the Blamer-in-Chief.

In 2009, Gov. Perry supported a State House resolution to secede and made comments at a rally alluding to an independent Texas.

But on Tuesday his spokesman said he "shares the frustration many Americans have with our federal government" but he "believes in the greatness of our union and nothing should be done to change it."

"People are free to do whatever people wanna do. We got a great country, and I full well expect us to get to focused on the work at hand which is keeping the economy strong in Texas," Perry later said.

President Obama might have to respond to the new secession movement because he promised to respond to any petition on the "We The People" website that garnered at least 25,000 signatures.

But given that there are also now petitions on the website calling for Austin to secede from the state and remain in the union and for anyone who signs the secession petitions to be deported, the Internet phenomena may not be taken seriously.

Up With Louisiana Secession!

I, for one, support the grassroots petition calling on Louisiana to secede from the United States. Why should we settle for always being No. 49 or No. 50 among U.S. states when we could be the No. 1 nation in the Caribbean?

Romney’s Defeat Exposes Inconvenient Truths of the Republican Party

The roots of Romney’s defeat reach much deeper into the Republican Party than many would like to admit.

Democrats had a lousy economy, made some rather dubious policy choices in the past four years, and had an incumbent who chose to skip the first debate. But when it came to just about everything else, they handled things expertly, or developments went their way. Republicans had a bright candidate, but one who lacked the dexterity to handle a very challenging set of circumstances, and a party that was well out of touch with the demographic, generational, and ideological changes quietly transforming the electorate.
