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 ... Full Story

The Republican Party seems as divided and angry as ever.

Infighting has penetrated the highest levels of the House GOP leadership. Long-standing geographic tensions have increased, pitting endangered Northeastern Republicans against their colleagues from other parts of the country. Enraged tea party leaders are threatening to knock off dozens of Republicans who supported a measure that raised taxes on the nation's highest earners.

"People are mad as hell. I'm right there with them," Amy Kremer, chairman of the Tea Party Express, said late last week, declaring that she has "no confidence" in the party her members typically support. Her remarks came after GOP lawmakers agreed to higher taxes but no broad spending cuts as part of a deal to avert the "fiscal cliff."

"Anybody that voted `yes' in the House should be concerned" about primary challenges in 2014, she said.

At the same time, one of the GOP's most popular voices, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, blasted his party's "toxic internal politics" after House Republicans initially declined to approve disaster relief for victims of Superstorm Sandy. He said it was "disgusting to watch" their actions and he faulted the GOP's most powerful elected official, House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio.

The GOP's internal struggles to figure out what it wants to be were painfully exposed after Mitt Romney's loss to President Barack Obama on Nov. 6, but they have exploded in recent days. The fallout could extend well beyond the party's ability to win policy battles on Capitol Hill. It could hamper Republicans as they examine how to regroup and attract new voters after a disheartening election season.

To a greater degree than the Democrats, the Republican Party has struggled with internal divisions for the past few years. But these latest clashes have seemed especially public and vicious.

"It's disappointing to see infighting in the party," said Ryan Williams, a Republican operative and former Romney aide. "It doesn't make us look like we're in a position to challenge the president and hold him accountable to the promises he made."

What's largely causing the dissension? A lack of a clear GOP leader with a single vision for the party.

They are a big fat joke. The more the spew the more pathetic I know they are. They say they hate black people, yet their under black people's azz every day.

Had they given Christie a good makeover months before he was the only one capable of giving Obama a run for his money. But they choose a robot instead. Manipulated by party hacks

Increasing the minimum wage sufficiently to support a family will result in significant inflation.

Let's say the minimum wage is increased from $7.25 to $15.

If you are already making $10 or $12 or $15 per hour, how much should you then be paid?

Correct. The House should have passed "Plan B" as proposed by Speaker Boehner and then refused to negotiate. Just like obama.

If minimum wage were 11$-12$ an hour, people (with some SENSE anyway) would be a lot better off...providing the economy DEflated some (as is now) in (some)price areas along with it.

(and then the rest could just be adjusted accordingly)

Christie doesn't need a make over. He didn't WANT to run for POTUS- this time around. He was ALREADY busy doing a good job, as NJ's governor.

Taxi drivers in Iran have been seen on American television holding up empty plates saying we can't eat nuclear fuel. Iran will accept olive branch and come to the peace table, sanctions are working. Big Isreali Air Force says so.
