Barack Obama, our next President

Quit lying. The truth is he's forcing people to get health insurance.
Not at all. They can opt out & ay a fine to contribute to the system he relies on for back up.

I have an idea, let those people, over 21, opt out of having health insurance only if they have a tattoo saying Payment Required. If they collapse with a heat attack, the ambulance & emergency room does not treat them without payment in advance. When they run out of cash & their credit cards are maxed, out the door they go.

You're gettin' closer to that next mini-stroke that might be a maxi any time now, I see--not to worry you've already said on any number of occasions that you're all your dad's fault.
There are over 2000 firms who invest their own money - not taxpayer money - to turn businesses around.

It's called capitalism, creating jobs and success.

Now go back to memorizing your talking points for the day.

Stimulating Hypocrisy: 114 Lawmakers Block Recovery While Taking Credit For Its Success
http://thinkprogress.org/report/touting-recov...
FOX won't tell you that.
I just read it. To say TP is stretching on some of those is an understatement. Let's look at the first one

Minority Leader Boehner:“The stated intent of the so-called stimulus package was to create jobs, and certainly a $57 million slush-fund studying projects did nothing to achieve that goal. With Ohio’s unemployment rate the highest it’s been in 25 years, I’m pleased that federal officials stepped in to order Ohio to use all of its construction dollars for shovel-ready projects that will create much-needed jobs.”

How is that taking credit? In fact, it's repeating the "shovel ready" lie.

Hostess already got at least two concessions from the Bakers union while handing out 6 figure salaries & bonuses to its executives.
The bakery business is highly competitive and low margin. Union salaries and work rules just don't work.

Wow! Six-figure salaries! Just like cops and firemen.

Does Dave earn less than six figures?

Ted Cruz and the Politics of Imprudence
.... this episode touches on a deeper matter, which is the habit some on the right have of confusing principled convictions with self-destructive tactics. Rather than selectively picking the ground on which to fight, they seem to relish brinksmanship and conflict, even if they lose those confrontations legislatively and in the court of public opinion. But what makes this whole thing slightly bizarre is that in the process the self-styled purists accuse those who oppose them as being (in Cruz’s elegant description)“a bunch of squishes.”
It takes a person of unusual ideological brittleness to mock those who are intelligent enough not to join a lawmaker and his colleagues in their version of Pickett’s Charge.

<quoted text> Yes, Jimmy , Sanford wins and it's Springtime for adulterers and criminals. Mark Sanford was an adulterer, a criminal(broke into his ex-wife's home), committed malfeasance while Governor( ran off to screw his Argentina skank without informing his staff or the state legislature that he left the country then lied about it), and Sanford supported Mitt Romney who made tons of money off of his Bain Capital company SteriCycle (medical waste business) after Romneycare that offers free abortions on demand passed in Massachusetts. Yeah, right, Mark Sanford is as much a 'family values' guy as Newt 'the snake' Gingrich! LOL
And yet the voters preferred Sanford over a Nancy Pelosi stooge.

Andrew McCarthy, a former prosecutor from Manhattan and the lead prosecutor in the 1993 bombing of the World Trade Center, said of Obama's handling of Benghazi:

"Dereliction of duty is an impeachable offense. But this is the most gross dereliction of duty under these circumstances from a commander in chief and his immediate subordinates that I ever remember seeing in my experience. And we haven't gotten an explanation — if there were coherent reasons why no action was taken."

Pretty powerful words.

It is not the government's job to pick winners and losers.
And yet, John Galt , the American way of government to 'pick winners and losers' to make this the wealthy , great and powerful country that it is today has been tradition since George Washington's time. Even President George Washington 'picked winners and losers ' in getting the Erie Canal built that opened the West to the pioneers , economic development, and progress. If government's picking winners and losers works and it sure as hell did work in America to make us all the wealthiest people on the Earth then why not?

No Carol, Romney didn't go out of his way to hire women. His "binders full of women" statement was just one of many lies he told during the campaign. The "binder" of women's résumés was prepared before the election by the Massachusetts Government Appointments Project, a coalition of nonpartisan women's groups. When Romney won, the women -- not in binders -- gave him the résumés.
A study by the University of Massachusetts and the Center for Women in Politics and Public Policy shows that the percentage of women in senior positions during his tenure actually declined. It went from 30% when Romney took office to 27% when he left and up to more than 33% after the new governor took over.

But go ahead and keep living in that alternate universe.
That's funny...because a liberal woman on Fox said her company was contacted by Romney in seeking qualified women to serve on his cabinet and she bomblasted the juvenile criticism by liberals because of the terminology to describe a professional portfolio often referred to as a binder.

You liberals really need to stop picking at scabs and worry more about excising the cancer in your party's ideology.

I guess that's your critical judgement on the low morals of many South Carolina voters? Thanks for confirming my suspicions . South Carolina voters would rather forgive adultery, breaking and entering, lying, sloth, greed and sexual perversion in Mark Sanford then vote for honesty, respect, successful business values in Elizabeth Colbert-Busch.

The Erie Canal was first proposed in 1807, long after George Washington was dead.

The liberals are in full-scale mode spin cycle in the hearings that are about to start.

The panel is right now giving opening statements and already a few liberals are exhibiting symptoms of having taken spin steroids this morning.

The beauty of liberal indignation is that when they are obviously on the defensive, they just dig themselves deeper and deeper.
