Barack Obama, our next President

He's flip flopping around in preparation for the 2014 election. He's requesting sizable increases in teachers pay and just presented a budget that's $4 billion higher than last year.

He's spending a lot of time along the I-4 corridor and not so much at The Villages__he must sense that the TeaPot has run out of steam.

Meanwhile Grayson has been rather quiet so far hasn't he?

today's prevailing theme....

In Search of Republican Reformers

In the last week there have been not one but four impressive pieces on fixing the Republican Party’s policy problem — one by Ramesh Ponnuru in the pages of this newspaper, one by James Pethokoukis in National Review, a lengthy essay by Pete Wehner and Michael Gerson in Commentary, and a sketch of a right-of-center health care reform by Douglas Holtz-Eakin and Avik Roy for Reuters. The proposals vary a bit, but there’s an essential unity to the ideas that they promote. To borrow Gerson and Wehner’s language, they’re all addressed to voters who “now regard the Republican Party as …wholly out of touch with ordinary Americans,” and they all take the obligations of governing more seriously than a lot of recent right-wing rhetoric has done. This, from the Commentary essay, is a solid formulation of the pieces’ common theme:

The Republican goal is equal opportunity, not equal results. But equality of opportunity is not a natural state; it is a social achievement, for which government shares some responsibility. The proper reaction to egalitarianism is not indifference. It is the promotion of a fluid society in which aspiration is honored and rewarded.

A G.O.P. that heeded this admonition would be a vastly healthier animal, spending much less time on lost or pointless causes, and much more time on the issues where majorities tend to be (and deserve to be) made and broken at the moment. But it is important for would-be reformers to concede that as of right now, the Republican Party’s rising stars clearly prefer to adopt the rhetoric suggested by conservative policy thinkers without embracing much if any of the substance. The rhetorical shift — embodied by figures from Marco Rubio and Bobby Jindal to Ted Cruz and Eric Cantor — isn’t nothing; it’s a welcome and necessary step forward from the failed right-wing messaging of 2012. But politicians who talk up “libertarian populism” or “opportunity conservatism” or the “Rawlsian lens” and then end by calling for a Balanced Budget Amendment, hard money and a flat tax aren’t actually reforming the Republican Party; they’re just wrapping losing ideas in slightly smarter rhetoric than poor Mitt Romney was ever able to come up with.

$5000 maximum hospital stays. What is that, about 4 hours?
Those employees will be able to buy a real policy through the exchanges get help if they don't make a lot of money.
Average cost is about $2000 per day, with the average increased by higher costs for Medicare patients.

"Get help" means that the taxpayer purchases their insurance.

Why do you people oppose free choice in purchasing insurance?

Democrats Have a Full-Blown Akin On Their Hands!!!

Looks like crazy Uncle Joe Biden has someone competing for his stupidity:

“It’s why we have call boxes, it’s why we have safe zones, it’s why we have the whistles. Because you just don’t know who you’re gonna be shooting at. And you don’t know if you feel like you’re gonna be raped, or if you feel like someone’s been following you around or if you feel like you’re in trouble when you may actually not be, that you pop out that gun and you pop … pop around at somebody.”

Check out the video - this crazy Democreep actually said that!

GOPidiots (a/k/a Frightwingers)ignored the fact that two of her fifth grade students were engaging in sexual intercourse and make no effort to bring this to the attention of school authorities or the parents.

It's all in the Topix record, confessed by the pervert herself, if you choose to check it out. She sees nothing wrong with fifth grade sex.

GOPidiots is a perverted child molester.

Those who don't understand or know history are bound to repeat it. You're still all about the democrats needing morons to replenish their ranks. 95% of Obama followers are ignorant, on the reservation. The other 5%, the rich elite keep their slaves that way.

Sure did. Lost a few cousins in that god-forsaken war, err, police action. Lost a few others that are still walking around but the hamster done died. Got one, he was a tunnel rat, you have to wake him up from across the room. No way do you get close to him.
