Barack Obama, our next President

Is this president finally realizing what it takes to be a leader?
WASHINGTON (Reuters)- Signaling he might be ready to explore a compromise to end automatic spending cuts that began late Friday, Obama mentioned reforming entitlement programs in calls with lawmakers from both parties on Saturday afternoon.
House of Representatives Speaker John Boehner, interviewed on NBC's "Meet the Press," said he "absolutely" would do whatever it takes to keep the government operating.
...Raising taxes again is the compromise. Guess entitlement reforms would have to be pretty significant if that's the case.
They were already there. I don't know why you keep talking about this, since you obviously have zero grasp on the situation.

"In politics, few talents are so richly rewarded as the ability to convince parasites that they are victims. Welfare states on both sides of the Atlantic have discovered that largess to losers does not reduce their hostility to society, but only increased it. Far from producing gratitude, generosity is seen as an admission of guilt, and the reparations as inadequate compensations for injustices - leading to worsening behavior by the recipients."
Hate-mongering against the poor is such an ugly GOP trait.

beating a dead horse.

For the first time, a majority of Americans now say the Republican Party is too extreme, according to a poll released Thursday by CNN/ORC.

Fifty-three percent of people, including 22 percent of Republicans, said the GOP's views and policies have pushed them beyond the mainstream. The number is up dramatically from previous years. In 2010, fewer than 40 percent thought the party was too extreme.

Democrats were considered to be a "generally mainstream" party by 57 percent in the new poll.

"That's due in part to the fact that the Republican brand is not doing all that well," said Keating Holland, CNN's polling director.

The Story of Romney’s Career:“What I Said Is Not What I Believe”
Of course, it never mattered whether Romney “really” believed what he was saying, because it became clear years ago that he would have said almost anything to win. In that case, it was a good bet that Romney was always more likely to lie to his audience than not, and for that reason he disqualified himself through sheer, overwhelming dishonesty. When in doubt, it was safe to assume that Romney was lying, and it was usually safe to assume the worst about his intentions.

Mark Sanford, the cad who won't go away:

According to Jenny, she had already told Mark she would be taking a pass on the race the day before, at the funeral of a mutual friend. So when Mark came to visit her, he arrived with a proposal.“Since you’re not running, I want to know if you’ll run my campaign,” he said.“We could put the team back together.”

Jenny told him, in so many words, that wasn’t going to happen. Mark made one last appeal.

“I could pay you this time,” he said.

The Sanfords ended their marriage in 2010, almost a year after the former governor admitted to an on-going affair with a woman in Argentina. Sanford is now engaged to the Argentinian woman, Maria Belen Chapur, whom he hints will not be a prominent figure on the campaign trail.

"She’s a very private person," he told The Hill. "We'll see."

It's amazing isn't it? One would think that we have a few billionaires on here; like Carol who continually carries water for the rich while making an hourly wage of $15.00; the hillbilly from KY who claims she works and once said makes $400 a week (doubtful)
etc.
It's not only against the poor, it is against all the middle class working people. They've been convinced to vote against their own best interests.

Fox News Interview Shows Mitt Romney Still Doesn’t Get Why He Lost

If you want to woo African-Americans and Latinos, stop claiming they live off the government dole while rich white people live lives of Ayn Randian self-reliance.

In response to reports Monday that President Barack Obama will tap Gina McCarthy to serve as the next director of the Environmental Protection Agency, Gene Karpinski, president of the League of Conservation Voters, issued a statement praising the pick:

“Gina McCarthy cares about progress not partisanship. She’s worked for administrations from both parties and made extraordinary progress protecting the air we breathe and defending public health. Republicans and Democrats easily confirmed Gina McCarthy as head of the EPA’s clean air division, and we hope they move swiftly to confirm her as head of the agency. We look forward to working with her to combat the climate crisis, protect our air and water, and advance chemical policy reform.”

League of Conservation Voters not confused.

Valerie Plame was well-known on the Washington party circuit as a pencil-pusher at the CIA.
That's why Richard Armitage told Bob Novak about her, believing it to be common knowledge.
Galt, you're such a Lying piece of GOP Sh*t, it defies the imagination. No one but Bush and his gang of thugs knew Plame was CIA because she was a covert operator.

According to the Grand Jury indictment against Libby, Plame's employment with the CIA was classified.

She was working undercover with Jenning Brewster and Associates as a nuclear consultant. There was no sign on her desk that said, "I am CIA". She frequently flew overseas and managed spies. Her specialty was assessing nuclear proliferation. It was the kind of work that aids our intelligence analysts in determining who might have a nuke.

Following Plame's exposure, retired C.I.A. analyst Larry C. Johnson and ten other former employees of the agency formally protested the matter to Congress.

Here's my source:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Valerie_Plame

The part about the Grand Jury concluding Plame's employment with the CIA being a classified matter is a few paragraphs above the section entitled "CIA Leak Scandal".

You're not dumb, Galt. But you are a lying, low-crawling GOP snake.

What a difference two years can make.

Scott is preparing to give his third State of the State address Tuesday, and while the major theme — jobs — will still be the same, Scott has undergone a transformation. He's cozying up to teachers instead of antagonizing them. He's learned the art of compromise with the Legislature. He's even cooperating with the federal government to put the president's health care plan into place.

"He's really the Benedict Arnold of the tea party/patriot movement in Florida. Most conservatives feel betrayed by him and members have been calling me and saying they want him fired," said Everett Wilkinson of the South Florida Tea Party, who once called Scott a rock star. "He's flip-flopped on such major areas. It shows how a man can be corrupted with D.C. and Tallahassee."

Yep.

Or the oil companies who currently take in $4 billion.

“The weakness that our campaign and that I had is we weren’t effective in taking my message primarily to minority voters,” Romney told Wallace. You don’t say. Here’s a hint: if you want to woo African-Americans and Latinos effectively, stop claiming that they live off the government dole while rich white people live lives of Ayn Randian self-reliance. Start viewing them with a bit more respect and people like yourself with a bit less self-regard. Even today, Romney seems not to understand that, which helps explain why he didn’t win the presidency and didn’t deserve to.
