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 ...

Those of us who know you aren't fooled (mostly). I've been off all week too, ironic we should return at the same time.
I'm tellin' ya, Grumpy Old Broad is still available.
Register.
Okay, I really must stop this. The carol magnet is sure to be close by.

But, yes it is ironic we should come back on at the same time and a little eerie we're on any sort of same wavelength.

Let's really test it. What color are you thinking of?

Why Government Spending Is Not Out of Control

It is a standard talking point of Republicans and deficit hawks of all political stripes that federal spending is out of control; that major surgery is needed, especially on entitlement programs such as Social Security and Medicare, to get the budget on a sustainable course.

In fact, our long-term deficit situation is not nearly as severe as even many budget experts believe. The problem is that they are looking at recent history and near-term projections that are overly impacted by one-time factors related to the economic crisis and massive Republican tax cuts that lowered revenues far below normal.

tax cuts are bad? yes....

U.S. posts $3 billion budget surplus for January

The budget posted a surprise surplus in January for the first time in five years, as the Treasury likely benefited from a windfall when payroll tax cuts expired.

and to finish the week blowing up myths....

What explains the sharp decline in U.S. employment from 2007 to 2009? Why has employment remained stubbornly low? Survey data from the National Federation of Independent Businesses show that the decline in state-level employment is strongly correlated with the increase in the percentage of businesses complaining about lack of demand. While business concerns about government regulation and taxes also rose steadily from 2008 to 2011, there is no evidence that job losses were larger in states where businesses were more worried about these factors.

Now tell us Mr. Galt, what does it feel like to live a fact free life?

Hagel Temporarily Blocked, Paul Permanently Damaged
I should add that it isnít just the Hagel vote that has alienated Sen. Paulís potential supporters. Sen. Paul has voted for cruel, ineffective Iran sanctions, and a lot of antiwar conservatives were willing to cut him some slack on the grounds that he was still opposed to war with Iran. He offered an entirely unnecessary security guarantee to Israel, and many of his potential supporters were still willing to give him the benefit of the doubt. Voting to block Hagel was the final straw for a lot of people, but itís important to understand that this reaction is not limited to dissatisfaction with todayís vote. The decision to vote with his party to block Hagel is part of a pattern of bad calls that Sen. Paul has made in recent months, and in each of these he has ended up siding with people who hate restraint and prudence in foreign policy and who also hate Hagel because he represented some measure of both.

The left is focusing their fire on Marco Rubio and Rand Paul because they are the leaders for 2016. Same old, same old.

Only a relatively small but vocal portion that are not reliable voters. The base of the Republican Party is the middle class (defined by values of thrift and hard work) and not the religious fundamentalists. We need a fiscally Conservative candidate with the courage to stand up to the religious extremists. Either Rubio or Paul may be that candidate.

it's not the left that's focusing on the fringe.

which is why democrats aren't much to worried about 2016. the fringe right and the rational right will be splitting the Republican vote.

Words from the expert at stealing others' ID's.

You were the first sockpuppet master here. You hijacked countless screen ID's.

Being personally abusive is your entire purpose in being here.

You gave a good display of it this morning.

this is the 'base'...

FreedomWorks Is "Freaking Out" Over the Giant-Panda-Hillary-Clinton-Se x Video

The story revealing that FreedomWorks produced a video with an obscene scene featuring a giant panda, Hillary Clinton, and oral sex created quite a stir and, according to former officials of the influential tea party group, had staffers at the conservative advocacy group and super-PAC "freaking out," as one put it. That was to be expected, especially since FreedomWorks is the target of an internal investigation mounted by its board of trustees after board members received "allegations of wrongdoing by the organization or its employees," according to a letter the board sent in December to Matt Kibbe, president of FreedomWorks.

You're right, I oversimplified it. Opposition to Hagel shows just how insane the post-Bush Republican "base" has become. The way they viciously turn on their own has banished traditional Republicanism.
