Barack Obama, our next President

According to multiple Fox sources, Ailes has issued a new directive to his staff: He wants the faces associated with the election off the air — for now. For Karl Rove and Dick Morris — a pair of pundits perhaps most closely aligned with Fox’s anti-Obama campaign — Ailes’s orders mean new rules. Ailes’s deputy, Fox News programming chief Bill Shine, has sent out orders mandating that producers must get permission before booking Rove or Morris…

Inside Fox News, Morris’s Romney boosterism and reality-denying predictions became a punch line. At a rehearsal on the Saturday before the election, according to a source, anchor Megyn Kelly chuckled when she relayed to colleagues what someone had told her:“I really like Dick Morris. He’s always wrong but he makes me feel good.”

That about sums it up. Wrongness on Fox News is irrelevant. Is there anyone on Fox News who’s been right about anything?

The majority of Americans did want Obama's version of health care reform passed. It was passed anyway proving he wasn't "here to do the will of the people".
The majority of Americans believe we are on the wrong track. Obama is taking us down the same one proving he isn't "here to do the will of the people".
The majority of Americans were against the nearly trillion dollar stimulus and nothing to show for it. Obama spent it anyway proving he wasn't "here for the will of the people".
So I have no idea what you're talking about.
By the way, he's a Black Liberation Theologist with Muslim sympathies.
Well, 65 million people disagree. The American people want healthcare. It is going to happen, no matter how much you all whine.
Next...
Let us go over that cliff, go for it.

Homer does that from time to time. Go back a page or two, Tenzing posted an article which may help explain why rightwingers cannot grasp certain things. Sure it's not going to ease your frustrations with them.

Dick has to be the most unsightly man on tv. Dick and Rove together is like a double dose of ugly.

It's much too easy to throw in the towel and get on the free bandwagon even it means adjusting and downsizing.
This is hilarious, two women in their 60's who make less than $400 a week worrying about pulling other peoples weight!
Is this comedy central?
You two are the weight!

Homer ready to go over the cliff, cannot possibly be any worse than 2008 when Bush destroyed everything in sight.

Let all the tax cuts expire and cut military spending, do everything the bi-partisan commission recommended.

Let's do this.

Anyone else with me on this?

Ok, will do. I find it amazing that they're still kicking and screaming about the healthcare bill even though it is the law of the land now and will happen regardless. Our Gov. Scott has until Dec 15 to set up the exchanges and get the federal funds to implement Obamacares; he's still stalling. Who will suffer? The poor people.
Re the fiscal cliff; let it happen.

Conservatives Actually Suck at This

John Boehner can do whatever the heck he wants to. The GOP could be making the argument that the White House has offered nothing on spending and the American people want spending cuts as much as they are okay with tax increases, but instead John Boehner will publicly negotiate with himself.

And he can. He can throw conservatives off fiscal committees without consequence.

Conservatives can complain, moan, wail, and scream all they want. They can call for third parties or no parties or sit at home.

It doesn’t really matter. Conservatives suck at this and the leadership knows it.

Leaders of both parties only pay attention to money and serious primary challengers. They have the money advantage. As for conservative primary challengers, conservatives have put up quite a few, but most are terrible, few win, and even fewer win the general election. Conservatives have done better on the Senate side, but some of the folks tea party groups and others stood up to challenge incumbents on the House side were downright embarrassing.

That last bit just turns people off. There’s no sense in putting up primary challengers if they don’t have a shot to actually win. Eventually the bulk of Republican voters will get worn out and go back. In the meantime, the leaders are still leaders and have effective scapegoats to blame.....

Conservatives are either going to hang together or separately. Right now they are getting played because Boehner, McConnell, and the like are sure the conservative movement has become a paper tiger. And, to be honest, conservatives have shown them this is true.

Unless and until we have true campaign finance reform and our elected officials must spend most of their time begging for money from corporations; the tax code will not be reformed.
Let the disaster happen.
Merry Christmas to you too!

You think the last three springs were bad wait till next year. 9.5% plus unemployment (really around 15%). More layoffs. Downward spiral. Point of no return.
Agree.

Where Have You Gone, Bill Buckley?

IT is a shame that William F. Buckley Jr. passed away in 2008. The conservative movement could use him — or someone like him — right now.

In the 1960s, Buckley, largely through his position at the helm of National Review, displayed political courage and sanity by taking on the John Birch Society, an influential anti-Communist group whose members saw conspiracies everywhere they looked.

Fast forward half a century. The modern-day Birchers are the Tea Party. By loudly espousing extreme rhetoric, yet holding untenable beliefs, they have run virtually unchallenged by the Republican leadership, aided by irresponsible radio talk-show hosts and right-wing pundits. While the Tea Party grew, respected moderate voices in the party were further pushed toward extinction. Republicans need a Buckley to bring us back.....

The absence of a Buckley-esque gatekeeper today has allowed extreme, untested candidates to take center stage and then commit predictable gaffes and issue moon-bat pronouncements. Democrats have used those statements to tarnish the Republican Party as anti-woman, anti-poor, anti-gay, anti-immigrant extremists. Buckley’s conservative pragmatism has been lost, along with the presidency and seats in Congress.
