"Krauthammer, for sure. His inanities are rendered more absurd by the completely misguided elevation he receives at what is left of National Review. The fact that this guy is regarded as some sort of intellectual heavyweight speaks volumes for the decline of conservatism. From Kirk to Krauthammer in 50 years."

Two hundred plus miles of shoreline-all of it a mess now. I have a brother-in-law in construction in the Sth Jersey area, his comment after the first day of being allowed back into the area (mostly for people to survey what damage they will be dealing with) "like looking at a third world country where bombs went off".
People whose primary residences were destroyed, are going to need some help...recovery will take awhile for certain.
Obama will fix it.

Parting Shot...

Mitt dismissed the 47%, then blamed the 47% for his massive defeat. "Free gifts" did the GOP in?

In fact, the largest gift to the president, came in the form of Mitt Romney himself and his vacant mind.

THE 'gift' that kept on giving... Votes away!

Purple lipped liar said: "If you like your health care plan, you can keep your health care plan."
Connecticut's leading primary care physician organization with over 1,000 employees just announced that their employee's costs for health insurance coverage will increase 24% in 2013. Also, 2013 will be the last year this corporation will offer employees HMO and POS plans. In 2014 only a high deductable health insurance plan will be offered.
So all that free shit Obama freely spreads around to his slacker horde does have costs; costs that will undoubtedly be paid for by middle class workers!!!
Your FOX talking points sure did win that election eh?

Seen the new polls on Obamacare?

and it's about time Obama semi-approved the message that Israel is sending-right back at the lunaTICS.
In a call with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Friday, U.S. President Barack Obama reiterated American support for Israel to defend itself, Reuters reported.
GO Mr POTUS!!
GO Israel!!!
Was Obama holding his nose when he made that call?

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.

We all know that eliminating the Bush tax cuts on the wealthy will not make much of a difference in the deficit ($42 billion a year, by most estimates). But anybody who preaches on that point will find himself talking to an empty auditorium. And if raising taxes on the rich is redistributionist socialism, someone should should have told Eisenhower, Nixon, and Reagan, whose rates on the rich were 91, 70, and 50 percent.

It just isn't.
We're all to blame, carol. The Divine only guides us if we choose to follow.
As a nation, we haven't - because as a nation, we worship Mammon, even if individually we say otherwise.
Just saying.
Maybe YOU worship some mammon, but that doesn't mean ALL of us do, MANY have their OWN ideas of GOD in their hearts, including some in government!
A lot of us strive to do the GOOD of a GOOD Lords work daily...because it beats the heck out of being evile!!

You're as full of shit as Carol.
Unions created the Middle Class. Without them, workers pay a steep price.
Hostess is an example of Rmoney style economics. THe Hedge Fund managers rewarded themselves with millions in pay, while th workers were asked to take cut after cut after cut.
At some point, people will refuse to be pushed around by rich fools. Expect to see more of that in the next few years.
hard times have always been the best organizer for unions.
Expect WalMart to have unions in the next few years.
It's the new civil rights movement.
To compare unions to greedy Corporate interests is ignorant, and that's being kind.
There goes the Walmart stocks and jobs then!!

Republicans Allowed Karl Rove to Mislead Them Again

....GOP donors and activists were fed more delusions than TV executives greenlighting the Oprah Winfrey Network. President Obama was deeply unpopular, even though no hard evidence showed that was ever true. Obamacare would dismantle the Democratic majority in the Senate, though parts of it were popular across the electorate and Republicans offered no tangible alternative. All the polls were biased and wrong, except the ones Republicans liked. The party’s message was focused on demonizing the Democrats, not putting forward controversial ideas because ideas weren’t needed. And Barack Obama was elected again.

When I worked with Rove briefly at the White House, I found him to be a smart, energetic, capable man. Maybe more than I even realized. In the past two election cycles, he and his acolytes have personally helped Barack Obama get elected and yet made millions in the process. You tell me who the dummy is—Rove or the people who keep listening to him and funding him. Come to think of it, who really deserves the blame for what’s befallen the GOP?

Nobody forced George W. Bush to make Karl Rove his all-knowing, all-powerful political adviser. Nobody forced Fox News to put him and his prognostications all across the network, often to the exclusion of all others. Nobody told billionaires to throw their money to a person someone marvelously described as a “GOP money incinerator.” Nobody told the media to make a fallible person with a dubious electoral winning streak the “genius” behind the GOP. What if the culprits we are all seeking are right before us—in the mirror?

Finally, it seems, donors and many GOP activists are waking up to the fact that there’s a world out there different from what they’ve heard about on Fox News and what they’ve been told by those in charge of the party’s machinery. The billion-dollar question is whether they will really do anything to change it. The danger of indulging delusions is that they always welcome you back.

The Pentagon announced today the formation of a new elite fighting unit called the United States Redneck Special Forces.
These brave Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Kentucky, Mississippi, Missouri, Oklahoma, Tennessee, and Texas boys will be dropped off into Afghanistan and have given only the following facts about terrorists.
1. The season opened today.
2. There is no limit.
3. They don't like beer, pickups, country music, or Jesus.
4. They are directly responsible for Dale Earnhardt's death.
The Pentagon expects the problems in Afghanistan to be over within a week.

Weren't you just accusing others of doing just what you're doing?? Taking money and healthcare from the Gov't??
As I said, look in the mirror, ya freakin' hypocrite!!
No surprise there, you nitwit.
There's a difference in people working all their lives and contributing, from those who do nothing all their lives but just take-from what OTHER people worked, earned and contributed to.
A BIG difference.

One is an earner-the other is a MOOCHER.

And it doesn't sound like YOU are in any position (especially since you seem so obliviously ingnorant to reality) to judge ANYONE else.

I just glanced up at the TV and saw a graphic that said, "Obama tells them to back off".
Was he talking about McCain and Graham or Israel?
