The Republicans are sitting back watching the reality of Obamacare unravel. Not one of them voted for it, remember? They were told to be quiet and get out of the way...or something to that effect.

Major Democratic financial backers, including trial lawyers and teachers, are gushing about Charlie Crist and his prospects for 2014. Crist has not announced plans to run for governor again, but polls show him trouncing Republican Gov. Rick Scott by double digits.

The lifelong Republican-turned-Democrat at this point looks like he could grab the Democratic nomination without even a serious challenge.

But oh-so-quietly, veteran Democratic fundraisers and strategists across Florida worry about another scenario: A Charlie Crist train wreck that would ensure a second term for one of America’s most-vulnerable Republican governors.

The wariness and even downright hostility to Crist’s candidacy is part of what’s fueling speculation about Sen. Bill Nelson entering the race.

Pedaling, pedaling, it just became apparent to sources in the know that Obama intends to recess appoint Tiger Woods as the Ambassador to Japan and to SKIP OVER the Kennedy girl. I wonder what SHE didn't do? Just imagine if she were the Ambassador and was killed in a raid by Islamic insurgents on our embassy there? Then the libs would be jumping up and down like fleas I can tell you.

I'm just dying to let you all in on the juicy tidbit I found in the Sun Times about Cal Ripkin's body being left to science. Turns out it wasn't a bat he was swinging after all! Wink, wink.

Surely you don't mean to imply that Shrub Bush, Condi, Rumsfeld and Darth Chaney were competent, do you? Even the Whites of West Virginia would find that lot to be a bunch of morans.

Perhaps the Republicans will propose single payer healthcare through taxation? Open up Medicare for all?

Oh look at that! Marco Rubio is backing a bipartisan plan on immigration! And they say we never learn to compromise. In the new plan illegal immigrant will be allowed to stay in Florida but must adopt names like, Richard, Sid, and Helouise. I knew we'd find a way to get it done.

During a White House news briefing last Friday, Press Secretary Jay Carney was asked whether Obama’s decision to include the chained CPI inflation adjustment in his new budget would “kick people into higher tax brackets faster” and violate the president’s vow not to raise taxes on the middle class. Carney replied that this was “not the President’s ideal approach to our budget challenges, but it is a serious compromise proposition that demonstrates that he wants to get things done, that he believes that we in Washington ought to do the business of the American people by coming together and finding common ground.”

That's funny you should say that; have a friend who is having trouble renewing his driving license since he has been Richard for 20 years and his birth certificate says Ricardo. Now he has to hire a lawyer.
that actually did happen, Ricardos were called Richard, Joses became Josephs, etc. but not legally.
