Barack Obama, our next President

Paul Ryan on Meet the Press was talking how to fix the economy.

I wish David Gregory would have asked Ryan how it got to be broken.

Ryan sitting there saying how important a balanced budget is yet the dumbasss ignored that he voted to take us off a balanced budget under Bush.

Republicans just seem to all have Romnesia about what they did under Bush.

Democrats, tea party unite vs. Mitch McConnell

Tea party activists looking to oust Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell in a GOP primary may get some help from an unlikely source: Democrats.

Big Democratic donors, local liberal activists and a left-leaning super PAC in Kentucky are telling tea partiers that they are poised to throw financial and organizational support behind a right-wing candidate should one try to defeat the powerful GOP leader in a 2014 primary fight.

The idea: Soften up McConnell and make him vulnerable in a general election in Kentucky, where Democrats still maintain a voter registration advantage. Or better yet, in their eyes: Watch Kentucky GOP primary voters nominate the 2014 version of Todd Akin or Richard Mourdock, weak candidates who may actually lose.

Ghost might belong in an asylum, but asylum's have been discontinued by the Democrats. they prefer the whackadoos live amongst the general public, no matter how dangerous. it is their "right" to not take medication and not be "segregated" in adult homes where their behavior can be supervised to prevent harm to themselves and others. ahhh...the unintended consequences of the libs, dems and progressives...

Dweeb's attack lines are very telling.

B4 election, he was railing about the 50 million illegals Rmoney was going to deport en masse.

Fast forward to now and the clowns are falling all over themselves crafting immigration bills!!

Funny how getting their asses stomped in the election leads to such dramatic changes in clown policy!!

Problem for the clowns is that they so alienated any and all immigrant groups, getting support from immigrants is just not going to happen.

Obama owns the immigration reform issue. The clowns will follow him like the beaten dogs they are.

Same with women's rights issues.

Same with gay marriage.

Obama has built a coalition that will elect Hillary in 2016.

Paul Ryan endorsed Hillary!! That''s how bad it's gotten for the nitwits!!

And the Teabaggers are dead, as proven by FAUX's firing of the rapidly aging Sarah Palin!!

Roger Ailles sais she's just not hot anymore. And she was always a brainless zombie!!

Say, wasn't Dweeb claiming TP ties b4 election??

Now he's too ashamed to mention it!!

Poor Dweeb. No Santorum, no TP!!!

BWAHAHAHAHAHA

You still haven't answered these two questions:
Where was Obama during the 7-hour battle between Al Qaeda and the stripped-down American security detatchment in Benghazi while the real-time video was being watched in the White House?
And;
Where will the money come from to pay for Obama's government?
A simple location is required to answer the first question.
A simple source of money is required to answer the second question.
To date, nobody on Earth has answered the above two questions.

I love how you assh*les are so stupid as to drag out the $1.78 a gallon. Really. It was 1.78 a gallon down from a record high because there was no demand. No demand because George W Bush killed the economy.
Well since you're not bothered by cause and effect, let's just stick to the facts; after four plus years of Obama, there's more people out of work and on the government payroll than when he took office. I say payroll because he is effectively paying people, with taxpayer money, to rely on government. He hired them to vote for him.

Texas vs. No Child Left Behind

The state where it all began turns against the Cult of Educational Testing--and the interests behind it.

....During the Bush years, much of the opposition to the high-stakes testing was muted. Some parents and educators expressed frustration with the state’s performance measurements, but the system was new at the time. And, much of that opposition was dismissed as political. Or, when educators and members of the business community complained about the shortage of skilled workers and the lack of opportunities for career training at the high school level, those critics were accused of wanting to “lower standards.”

Fast forward 15 years, and the current system has lost most of its luster. Texas has worker shortages in the skilled trades, and improvements on state tests aren’t reflected in college entrance exams such as the SAT or ACT. In fact, average SAT reading scores in Texas have declined eight points in the last decade. A recent review by the National Academy of Sciences shows that high-stakes testing is not improving academic achievement. In fact, it may do more harm than good. While there is a debate about how to calculate dropout rates, just about everyone agrees that Texas has a serious problem with high school dropouts.

Many students get frustrated with the current one-size-fits-all test-based system with its emphasis on pushing everyone towards college; and they drop out because they don’t see education as relevant to them.

Ted Kazynsky was a close personal friend of Randy Weaver's.

Both domestic terrorists.

Say, aren't you the idiot who was/is a big fan of Randy Weaver, domestic terrorist??

You shall be known by the company you keep.

Good article. Denial by Carol and her flaky feathered friends will drive the party into national irrelevancy:

They won't own up to this:

"Far more politically damaging for Republicans are the national party’s lack of any relevant economic policy agenda and its cynical, selective interest in fiscal responsibility. This is the “pro-growth” party that presided over wage stagnation and anemic job growth in the 2000s, and this is the party supposedly horrified by deficit spending while being historically far worse at running up deficits when in power.

The weaknesses don’t stop there. The GOP wants to be perceived as the party of limited, constitutional government, but it just went through the better part of a decade expanding the size and intrusiveness of government, and it supported practices of illegal detention and illegal surveillance to boot. With depressingly few exceptions, the party hasn’t repudiated any of the latter, and there appears to be no urgency in reversing or undoing any of the damage done by these things. Having trashed almost everything that their party was supposed to represent, many Republican leaders act as if the worst thing that ever happened during the Bush years was a profusion of earmarks. Until they stop kidding or lying to themselves about what happened the last time there was unified Republican government, it’s doubtful that the public will be willing to entrust them with that much power."

Boehner’s Fiscal Long Game

Is "no budget, no pay" a smart strategy or a surrender to big government?

The GOP was committed to the idea that additional borrowing authority should be matched dollar-for-dollar by spending cuts, making a higher debt limit less of a blank check. Last week, House Republicans instead passed a three-month extension of the debt ceiling with no spending cuts but some promises to revisit spending in May.

Naturally, many conservatives feel they are being played. Spending cuts always come later. When the GOP is out of power, they must wait until they have won the next election to address the size of government. When Republicans are in power, they must not do anything to the budget that might make spending-addicted voters throw them out.

http://www.theamericanconservative.com/articl...

not to forget that most of the spending-addicted are in red states.
