Barack Obama, our next President

NAFTA was a Republican initiative all the way and a Bush I pet project, it was going to become law whether Clinton signed it or not but Clinton saw value in the agreement too.
It became a textbook example for unintended consequences.
Clinton signed NAFTA into law, then to pacify the unions the door was open to them to invade government and unionize it.
That's why, today, more than half of the union membership is government workers. Before Clinton, unions represented the people they should have represented.

Saul Alinsky, Lenin, Hitler, and others have something to say about that, too. Unions are very helpful when taking over a government.

THAT's what the article said.

FACT is-it was SIGNED into EFFECTIVE law, on THAT day in HISTORY.

Is it REALLY THAT hard to comprehend a simple FACT?

hey Woodward....read this.....

George McClellans Ghost Must be Advising Congressional Conservatives

Forget John Boehner and Mitch McConnell. Conservatives in the House and Senate have been hit with the stupid stick. All I can think is that George McClellans ghost is whispering in their ear.

The conservatives in Congress forget Republican leaders for a minute want to make their stand not on the continuing resolution to keep the government going, but on the debt ceiling.

Each time Congress has had a debt ceiling fight, it has ended badly for the GOP. Conservatives have been rhetorically slaughtered by even conservatives in the media each time theyve tried to block a debt ceiling increase.

And guess what? Theyve failed every time.

They did get sequestration, but now are witnesses their own Republican leaders flail about and lose a PR battle over something Barack Obama himself proposed.

Conservatives in Congress are worse than Charlie Brown getting a football pulled away from them. They are more a trained circus seal who barks for a fish from Republican leaders and does a few tricks to wow the crowd.

Right now there is a brewing continuing resolution fight. Conservatives could be demanding defunding of the federal exchange component of Obamacare and the expansion of Medicaid. Obamacare remains deeply unpopular with the public and there are more and more signs it is going to be massively more problematic for the nation.

But no, Congressional conservatives do not want to make a stand on the continuing resolution. Theyll take sequestration and nothing else. They do not understand that they should at least ask for more and negotiate back to sequestration in the worst case scenario.

Instead, theyll make a stand on the debt ceiling and see it raised again. Meanwhile, they parade around like heroes for the sequester when (A) it was Obamas idea and (B) the only freaking thing theyve done is absolutely nothing. Sequestration was last week and will be next week the present and existing law of the land. Conservatives did jack.

George McClellan must be designing their strategy as conservatives in Congress these days are to me one of the mysteries of the war against the leviathan.

The Liberal Media has been pushing a Narrative that the Presidents hands are Tied!! The inconvenient fact that completely undermines the Narrative Propaganda currently emanating from the White House and its media about the dire, world-ending, economy-crashing, dangerous sequester cuts!! Well folks Obama have the authority to choose what is and is not cut!!The question should be. will Obama step up and finally show Leadership or will he continue to play Politics with Americans Lifes?

Behold Movement Conservatism's Information Disadvantage: Chuck Hagel Edition

His confirmation was widely anticipated. Yet Jennifer Rubin and other neocons repeatedly published analysis that led their readers astray.

Once again, the conservative media, where non-conservative journalists are constantly maligned, has been thoroughly outperformed on this metric: Who best equipped readers to anticipate the outcome that actually happened? That isn't the only important metric in journalism, or even the most important, but failing at it so spectacularly surely demands some introspection.

Nice try, but FAIL DEBIL.

I didn't post this to carol.

You did.

You also wrote the "SapphireBlue" post "enclosed" < Below >.

And carol is quite capable of helping herself.

All she needs to do is register.

Talk about "STOP" ... Stop being so afraid of carol's voice of opposition < which is why you, demwit and leosa$$inine, along with other liberals, viciously attack her >. FEAR. You're pathetic.

And change that Screen Name from SapphireBlue to JanetBlew !!!

Since you've already used the "Janet" part in one of your Screen Names not so long ago.

In which the Obama administration threatened to send Bob Woodward to a gulag for thought crimes

But if you spend twenty seconds reading the email in question, it couldn't be more obvious that Bob Woodward is completely full of it:

Bob:

I apologize for raising my voice in our conversation today. My bad. I do understand your problems with a couple of our statements in the fall but feel on the other hand that you focus on a few specific trees that gives a very wrong perception of the forest. But perhaps we will just not see eye to eye here.

But I do truly believe you should rethink your comment about saying saying that Potus asking for revenues is moving the goal post. I know you may not believe this, but as a friend, I think you will regret staking out that claim.

The full email is here. Woodward's response?

Gene: You do not ever have to apologize to me. You get wound up because you are making your points and you believe them. This is all part of a serious discussion. I for one welcome a little heat; there should more given the importance. I also welcome your personal advice. I am listening. I know you lived all this. My partial advantage is that I talked extensively with all involved. I am traveling and will try to reach you after 3 pm today. Best, Bob

So not only was Sperling's email heavier on the apology than on the threats (more specifically, there was an apology, but not a threat), Woodward clearly interpreted it as such. Indeed, he said he "welcomed it." But then he went running to other media outlets to claim he was the target of a White House political attack. The first of those outlets, Politico, failed to report the "as a friend" portion of Sperling's email, nor did they mention Woodward's cheerful reply. CNN was breathlessly intrigued as well. The net result was that there was a political hit job going on: but it was Woodward who was leading it.

Oh, and you know what else? Woodward was wrong. But so was Sperling, because Woodward clearly doesn't regret that fact. He should....

Somewhere in Moscow tonight, Vladimir Putin saw that Bob Woodward was sent a threatening message from the White House...and he smiled.
