Barack Obama, our next President

"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 ... Full Story

what is wrong with all of these right wing sites?
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 McClellan’s 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 they’ve tried to block a debt ceiling increase.
And guess what? They’ve 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.

What exactly does Reagan have to do with anything. Do any of you liberals live in the present?
Ronald Reagan and the 47 Percent

Mitt Romney, meet Ronald Reagan. The Romney-Ryan campaign labels the 47 percent of people who don’t pay federal income taxes as “takers.” But to President Reagan, the godfather of today’s conservatives, anyone who worked for a living was a maker, whether he or she paid taxes or not.

Reagan strongly supported the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC), which sends checks to Americans who work but earn less than around $46,000 a year, depending on family size. Recipients of the credit are among those who don’t pay income tax, but Reagan never regarded that as a problem. His administration estimated that the 1986 reform of the tax code would remove 6 million working poor from the tax rolls. Reagan called the reform a “sweeping victory for fairness” and “perhaps the biggest antipoverty program in our history.”

Like Clinton lost back in 1995 when the GOP temporarily shut down the government?

As I recall, Republicans came out of that battle as welcome in the public eye as a plague of locusts.

some garbage will never go out of style....

What I am finding is that among conservatives there is too much outrage, piss, and vinegar. It makes our ideas less effective. We have become humorless, angry opponents of the President instead of happy warriors selling better ideas. We are not even selling ideas.

Conservatives, frankly, have become purveyors of outrage instead of preachers for a cause. Instead of showing how increasing government harms people, how free markets help people, and how conservative policies benefit all Americans, we scream “Benghazi” and “Fast & Furious.”

We’re off key and off message. We’ve become professional victims dialed up to 10 on the outrage meter. Who the hell wants to listen to conservatives whining and moaning all the time about the outrage du jour? Seriously? Mitt Romney ran a campaign on just how bad things are, but he was rejected by a majority of Americans who felt like he really did not care about them and really had no plans to improve their lives.

Bitching about Benghazi doesn’t do that either.

The modern State of Israel was created by the United Nations.

American liberals were strong supporters of Israel for many years.

I doubt very much if the GOP would copy the Jerk-In-Chief's sociopolitical mantra. You need to get creative and not just bluntly and crudely stupid.

Again you losers need to shake the messiah worship of others and believing that the rest of us are sheep like you. Reagan is certainly not the godfather of my conservatism, and I was paying taxes during his presidency. So since I reject your Reagan drivel, I again ask what does Reagan have to do with me …. Answer … nothing.

I unlike you and your ilk can think for myself and don’t base my beliefs on the basis of what some talking head states regardless of what party they are from. I feel bad for you … you are so indoctrinated that you can’t even see that thinking for yourself is no longer an option for you. No wonder you champion the government thinking for you.
