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

"Serious" Conservative Media And The Recidivist Temptation
President Obama's reelection has prompted more than a few conservative pundits and journalists to look inward and contemplate the weaknesses of the right-wing media model that obsesses over partisan minutia, eagerly chases phantom scandals, nosedives down ideological rabbit holes, and excludes dissenting voices. It's an interesting discussion, but it's hampered by the fact that the same people calling for change are themselves backsliding into the behaviors they want to correct.
Commentary editor and columnist John Podhoretz offers a pure distillation of this recidivist phenomenon. "Time To Get Serious," writes Podhoretz for the April issue of Commentary, arguing that after 6 years of treating Obama as alternately a "lightweight" political incompetent and a power-mad would-be dictator, and with nothing but two electoral drubbings to show for it, conservatives have to "come to grips" with Obama's political skill:
It's not just the comforting delusion that he's a golf-mad dilettante, but also the reverse-negative image of that delusion--that Obama is a not-so-secret Marxist Kenyan with dictatorial ambitions and a nearly limitless appetite for power. That caricature makes it far too easy for Obama to laugh off the legitimate criticisms of the kind of political leader he really is: a conventional post-1960s left-liberal with limited interest in the private sector and the gut sense that government must and should do more, whatever "more" might mean at any given moment.
Podhoretz's very next paragraph, however, shows that he's not quite ready to take his own advice, as he casts the Obama presidency as a vehicle for "disaster" at home and "nihilistic chaos" globally -- precisely the sort of extremist caricature he says isn't helpful for conservatives:
The notion that Obama is a dangerous extremist helps him, because it makes him seem reasonable and his critics foolish. It also helps those who peddle it, because it makes them notorious and helps them sell their wares. But it has done perhaps irreparable harm to the central conservative cause of the present moment -- making the case that Obama's social-democratic statism is setting the United States on a course for disaster and that his anti-exceptionalist foreign policy is setting the world on a course for nihilistic chaos. Those are serious arguments, befitting a serious antagonist. They may not sell gold coins as quickly and as well as excessive alarmism, but they have the inestimable advantage of being true.
Daniel Larison of the American Conservative observes:
Of course, warning about global "nihilistic chaos" being unleashed by an "anti-exceptionalist foreign policy" is just another example of excessive alarmism that produces the same effects as the attacks Podhoretz wants conservatives to reject. No one outside the bubble of movement conservatives and hard-liners believes that Obama's foreign policy is "anti-exceptionalist " in any sense, much less in the tendentious way that it is being applied here.

Your original statement was:
"you mean those things most of us paid in advance for? "
I pointed out you haven't paid even a tiny portion of it, you get upset and revert to your base ignorance.
Some things never change.
BTW, you have it backwards.(No surprise!)
It's medical technology that drives up the costs.
Without such technology, we wouldn't be living any longer. Without modern diabetes drugs, folks like Carol would have been dead a decade ago.
Actually this is what you said "You don't pay in advance for any of it." Which is a flat out lie.

It is unbelievable that some think the economy has improved. We have a record number of American's on food stamps, we have millions fewer American's paying Federal Income tax. One would think if things were improving fewer American's would qualify for food stamps and more American's would be paying Federal Income tax.

It's guys like you that make me not want to leave any republicans alive. So let's go through it again for the exceptionally slow ones: 90% of the wealth in this country is controlled by (generously) 20% of its people. 1% of the people control 35% of the wealth. The bottom 40% control 1% of the nation's wealth. These figures have skewed toward top-end loading DRAMATICALLY over the last 25 years. IS it some kind of revelation to you clowns that when the lowest half of the population in terms of income actually LOSES real income to the highest half that they gradually fall into poverty and need? Do you have some kind of brain condition? You TOOK their money and now you want to blame them for giving it to you? It's like you're terminally retarded. You want to believe your own ridiculous calculus soooo badly that you can't even see what you've done? It's fucking unbelievable!
