National and local conservative activists are up in arms because former South Dakota Gov. Mike Rounds (R), a leading contender in the state's open U.S. Senate race next year, declined to give total assurances that he won't raise taxes if he makes it to Capitol Hill.

A story published Sunday in the Argus Leader of Sioux Falls, S.D. quoted a number of right-wing leaders who expressed misgivings about the former governor's refusal to accept the anti-tax pledge, as well as his spending record while in office.

Rounds told the Argus Leader that pledges lead to bad governance.

“While we may know how we would feel about a particular issue right now, when things change, when circumstances change, a good legislator or congressperson should have the ability to reconsider their own position on an issue,” Rounds said.

The Soviet Union is dead thanks to the policies of the Eisenhower, Kennedy, Johnson, Nixon, Ford and mostly the Carter years, of course then Reagan took credit for their demise.

If any presidential candidate made that kind of mistake, a red flag should go up.
Not only did he say he had been in 57 states with 1 more to go but he hadn't even been to Alaska and Hawaii. That makes 60.
No matter how tired you were, wouldn't you hear yourself say 57 states with 1 more to go and correct it immediately?
Imagine if Romney or Bush had said they had been in 57 states with 1 more to go. Heavens to Betsy, it would have been the end of their candidacy. The liberal media would have seen to it.
The difference is George W Bush is stupid. He might actually believe there are 57 states. Obama isn't. He made a mistake.

Get over it, you sound really silly.

Yep, the GOP robots keep screaming about "Obamacare" without realizing health insurance is still controlled by the private sector.

That's what happens when you let Rush Limbaugh do your thinking for you.

Rounds will be castigated as a "RINO" and marked for defeat. There's no room for independent thinking in the GOP.

Calling Ben Carson's words 'hurtful, offensive,' Hopkins CEO brings clarity to debate

The letter from Rothman puts an end to the politicized nonsense stirred up by Fox News and Hannity, one of its most compromised hosts. Carson's words were not misinterpreted, and furthermore, his boss believes they were hurtful and offensive.

Did you think there was logic in there? Lets try it another way.
While black people vehemently reject being considered mentally ill, they have no problems regarding those who dislike black people as mentally ill or afraid.
Yep.
There is nothing wrong with being gay. But people who still have a problem with gay people, even with all the information available today, definitely have some kind of mental/emotional issues and/or are afraid.
You will all be regarded with the same shame as we now regard racists.
AGAIN... YOU homosexual bigots, seek to be another "hump" on the back of this black camels back... You deviants equating and using blacks for your deranged equality, you parasitic loser..

So far, you're threat of "steamrolling" anyone is rather empty.
California voters pretty much "steamrolled" over this issue already. It was predominantly black and Hispanic democrats who carried the vote. Asians and whites were both closer to 50/50.
Also, 39 states who had gay marriage on the ballot voted it down.
Good luck.
Perhaps you should start reciting this to yourself: God grant me the serenity to accept those things I cannot change.
You have no sense of perspective.

California is about to be overturned. Even if the court rules they have no standing, prop 8 is overturned. Even if they say there is standing but they choose not to rule on it, prop 8 is overturned. They only way prop 8 is upheld is if 5 justices explicitly uphold it. Good luck with that.

We won EVERY vote on the ballot in the last election.

So let's take some more states and put them BACK on the ballot. Let's start with my state, Florida. Let's do it in 2016 with Hillary running for President, supporting us. Please, let's do it. I may organize it myself depending on what we hear in June.

80% of people under 30 support same sex marriage. Do you not realize all we have to do is wait a few more years and we will have a national supermajority? How do you not see that?

You really should be ashamed of yourself as an American. You especially, because you're not one of these dumb-@sses saying bad things about gay people in general, so you should know better.

My marriage is every bit a marriage as yours. Deal with that.

Breitbart Article Debunks Previous Breitbart Articles On Gun Control Conspiracies

The notoriously dimwitted hacks at Breitbart News practice a form of pseudo-journalism that reeks of ultra-rightist propaganda (or just plain reeks). They rarely bother to fact check their stories as was demonstrated recently when they published a false item about Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel receiving donations from an organization that, it turns out, doesn’t exist. Likewise, they posted a story as “news” that they sourced to site that produces satirical articles. And to make matters worse, they had previously mocked the Washington Post for falling for an article from the same site.

Today, however, the BreitBrats deserve credit for an article that accurately and comprehensively takes apart a collection of conspiracy theories revolving around a perfectly ordinary transaction by the Department of Homeland Security.

Oh, and it seems as though the right wing loons have overlooked that the baby boomers have created a nightmare with +/- 10,000 per day retiring-leaving the work force-going on the dole etc etc etc. It's not as though people didn't retire previously__but never at anywhere near at the same rate as the BB's.
But then many of the right wingers are lousy at math__history and geography too.
Please, I still have nightmares thinking about those 2 running the country.

stupid?? The consequences of you rimming.

In third-world countries, the drinking water supply often gets contaminated with feces, resulting in a disease outbreak. Homosexuals, however, get (shit) feces directly from the source via rimming, eating it.

Not surprisingly, the worms and microbes that occupy their digestive tracts span a good range of parasite diversity: Neisseria gonorrhea, herpes simplex virus, Chlamydia trachomatis, Treponema pallidum, Campylobacter jejuni, Campylobacter fetus fetus, Shigella flexneri, Entamoeba histolytica, Clostridium difficile, Giardia lamblia, and many others, including worms.

Just because someone does not like (homosexuals) steak, does not makes them a (bigot) vegetarian... moron..

All the new jobs will be on the government insurance payroll which you and I and anyone who still has a job will be paying for.
hey, this might be a good thing for the chronically unemployed, the semi-literate, the striking fast food workers who've been on the job for 10 years and still make only minimum wage....they can all be Navigators for Obamacare (with probably about the same work ethic and IQ as TSA workers named Tamika and Shamika--the ones that let bombs through but pat down babies and 90 year olds thoroughly):

'See — Obamacare is already creating jobs

The Affordable Care Act will be made a bit more expensive because evidently those who sign up will have to be issued a taxpayer-provided personal red tape sherpa to help them navigate the treacherous and unpredictable “pass it to find out what’s in it” landscape:

Tens of thousands of health care professionals, union workers and community activists hired as “navigators” to help Americans choose Obamacare options starting Oct. 1 could earn $20 an hour or more, according to new regulations issued Wednesday.

The 63-page rule covering navigators, drawn up by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, also said the government will provide free translators for those not fluent in English — no matter what their native language is.

“The proposed requirements would also include that such entities and individuals provide consumers with information and assistance in the consumer’s preferred language, at no cost to the consumer, which would include oral interpretation of non-English languages and the translation of written documents in non-English languages when necessary to ensure meaningful access,” said the regulations.

The rules also addressed conflict of interest and other potential issues that navigators could face as the public’s first stop on the Obamacare trail.

It is still not clear how many navigators will be required. California, however, provides a hint. It wants 21,000.

That could be an expensive proposition. The proposed rules, now open for public comment, suggest an estimated pay of $20-$48 an hour.'
