Barack Obama, our next President

Full story: Hampton Roads Daily Press

"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 ...

The present leadership of the Republican Party has gone from making the case that government is the problem and the American people are the solution to making the case that Democratic controlled government is the problem and Republican controlled government is the solution.

By giving up on making the case that government is the problem and pivoting to “Democrats are the problem,” the Republican Party has failed the American people. Historically, when parties lost, their leadership went and hid for an appropriate amount of time under a rock after an acceptance of blame and a resignation.

The present Republican leaders in Washington, instead of hiding under a rock, have taken to standing on the rock and demanding conservatives self flagellate.

Let us not kid ourselves. The Republicans intend to strike a last minute deal to cave. They will. They are going blind in the bathroom over the idea of bifurcating tax cuts so Barack Obama can veto the tax cut for high income earners and let the rest slide through. It is, as usual, a too clever by half compromise from the GOP, which has spent more time out negotiating itself to the left than negotiating with the Democrats.

The compromise is no longer the issue. It will happen.

Oh geesh. Now nutsickles is going to claim you said you had a limp.
That's funny. My left leg has been acting up a bit lately. Only when I first stand up and put weight on it. But did have a slight limp a few days last week.

Not serious. Comes and goes. Not limping anymore.

Is it any wonder the American people have come to the conclusion that government isn’t so bad when the party of small government keeps expanding it too? The leaders of the party are the message, not the words. And the message does not resonate because they do not practice what they preach.

Until the Republicans change their message, they will keep losing.

Let's put aside the Constitutional Rights issue for a moment and examine a realistic hypothetical. Assume for the moment that unions become so politically strong and so prevalent that, along with the Boy Messiah's rights-trampling, 99% of all businesses become Closed Shop. Most of those union dues are now going to support the Boy Messiah in one way or another.
What does your "choice" now mean? It means nothing. It makes a distinction with no difference. This is "Spitting on the sidewalk is illegal" type of naivete.
But now back to my rights. If I want to work without union political interference, I can't. Being forced to belong to a union as a hiring stipulation, I am also being forced to support a Socialist Political Party. This is unconstitutional. It is against an individual's rights found in the Bill of Rights regarding the rights of association.
I don't want to be a Catholic. I don't want to belong to the Masons. I don't want to be forced by my boss to join Facebook. I don't want to be a Socialist Party member. I don't want to support the Boy Messiah through my forced membership in the NEA.
Jeebus freakin' kryst. If you want to work without 'union interference', find a non-unionized job. Goddam, boy. It isn't difficult. They're everywhere.

Of course, they don't pay shit, but hey - it's your choice.

Free country and all of that.

We're all going to die penniless.

Quite a few couples rely on just one family plan - the one who has the better coverage. And sometimes it's the woman's.

It's quite common for women who stay at home to raise their children or work part-time to supplment their family's income to depend on their husband's employment benefits.

You sure are an elitist.

A poor hot dog vender who was just on Greta a few minutes ago said he was hired to come in and sell hot dogs and happened to be near the violent mob tearing down the tent. He's a black man and said the violent mob turned on him, called him an Uncle Tom, threw racial slurs at him, called him the "n" word and destroyed his hot dog stand.
The crowd was yelling this isn't peace time, this isn't Martin Luther King time, we aren't going to go for this peace stuff, we're going to do it our way, etc., etc., etc.
Unions are what Obama lives and breathes for.
In 2008, the Big Daddy to the Big O was the SEIU.
FEC-required filings show SEIU's two PACs spent over $9 million dollars supporting Obama.
"I've spent my entire adult life working with SEIU."
He loves his unions.
Carol , you watch WAY too much Fox, it's total crap. All their stories are engineered to appeal to ppl like you and it keeps failing. It's like running around the country looking for a KKK meeting and then broadcasting as thou it represents the whole country. That is what Fox does ALL the time and suckers like you keep hearing the message because you don't want to hear the truth.
Remember the Black intimidation guys at the polling booths the previous election. They ran with that 24/7 and it was a total beat up, so yes it bites them on the a$$ every time. They have no more got their finger on the political pulse of the country than your pet cat!

How Republicans Are Duping Members of Their Own Party

It’s grade-school civics that the two parties in Washington represent the views of the people who sent them there, and usually, it’s true, or true enough. But a funny thing is happening on the way to the fiscal cliff, which is that Washington Republicans, according to a very interesting new poll, are not representing the positions of rank-and-file Republicans. So whose views are they representing? Good question. And here’s another good question: Why can’t Washington Republicans recognize how deeply unpopular their positions are and just get down to the business of making a deal that would work and would have broad support in the country? Hmmm.

The poll comes from the McClatchy News Service and was conducted by Marist. It asked respondents what they would and would not support as part of a grand fiscal bargain. The top-line results are typical: People first and foremost want to see taxes go up on the high end.

But here’s the good stuff. Breaking down results to Republican respondents only, their positions are as follows. By 47-37, they oppose letting the current payroll tax cut expire (an Obama position). By 68-26, they’re against cutting Medicare spending. By 61-33, they oppose cutting Medicaid spending (yes, Medicaid spending!). By 66-28, they’re against eliminating the home-mortgage interest deduction. By 72-25, they oppose eliminating the charitable contribution deduction. And by 56-44, less overwhelming but still very much a landslide in political terms, they just say no to raising the Medicare eligibility age.

Please read those numbers over one more time. That’s Republicans. Supporting “liberal” positions by huge margins.
