Bachmann could face lawsuit for ‘propagating complete and utter lies’
A religious freedom advocate told U.S. News he is considering suing Rep. Michelle Bachmann (R-MN) over allegedly slanderous comments she made in a fundraising pitch.
“We are caucusing with our legal counsel to consider the most expeditious course of action we can take in a federal court to stop these bald-faced lies,” Mikey Weinstein of the Military Religious Freedom Foundation (MRFF) said.“About 96 percent of our members [at MRFF] are Protestant or Roman Catholic… of our unpaid volunteers, at least well over 80 percent are Christian… I say [to Bachmann]: Tell it to the judge.”

It has been reported that you could face a lawsuit for the same type of thing.

So Mr. Walton turned to a young lawyer who just happened to be married to the governor of Arkansas, where Wal-Mart is based: Hillary Rodham Clinton.

Mrs. Clinton’s six-year tenure as a director of Wal-Mart, the nation’s largest company, remains a little known chapter in her liberal communist career.

You need someone more towards the center and who will work with Democrats when necessary like Christie otherwise you're fcked as far as winning the presidency. The more likely option is the South secedes again and then you'll have a rightwing president.

All of those 5 terrorists' attacks also led to convictions and long prison terms or death for the perps. How many of the terrorist masterminds of 9/11 where 3,000 innocent Americans died were pursued, convicted , and imprisoned or killed by George W Bush ? ZERO.

Envy is ugly.
Cutting taxes in general without cutting spending takes money from all of us as it adds to the deficit.

We all share the national debt.

When you give tax cuts weighted to the wealthy without corresponding spending cuts, the poor & Middle Class end up taking the hit for the wealthy's tax breaks.

When you give a particular company or a particular industry a tax break without a spending cut or corresponding revenue increase elsewhere, people pay for it as the deficits increase.

Republicans offered the answer. They insisted that the 'individual mandate' be put in Obamacare because it was the only way that Big Insurers argued that they could keep people with preexisting conditions on insurance rolls without going bankrupt.

----------

After nearly a week of controversy surrounding the body of suspected Boston bomber Tamerlan Tsarnaev, FOX 25 and The Boston Globe are reporting that he has been moved from the funeral home for burial.

"A courageous and compassionate person came forward to provide the assistance needed to properly bury the deceased," Worcester police Sgt. Kerry Hazelhurst told FOX 25.

"Body left Worcester funeral home before midnight," Boston Globe reporter Wesley Lowery tweeted today, "[and] has been buried out of state in plan approved by uncle Ruslan Tsani."

Multiple cemeteries in Massachusetts refused to accept Tsarnaev's body. Tsarnaev's uncle was initially insistent that Tamerlan, who died during a police shootout on April 19, be buried in Massachusetts, but those plans fell through.

UPDATE: There is some confusion as to whether the body has actually been buried or just moved in preparation for burial. Globe reporter Lowery tweeted this clarification: " Worcester PD statement says Tamerlan Tsarnaev's body 'entombed,' which is technically different than 'buried' as I reported."

When “Thinking Strategically” Means Not Thinking At All

Thank goodness Karl Rove has no influence in the White House any longer. Here is his idea of “thinking strategically” about Iran:

But if he thought about Iran strategically, he would have backed Iran’s Green Revolution after the stolen 2009 parliamentary elections. He would also not have sabotaged chances for a U.S. military presence in Iraq by insisting on parliamentary approval of a status-of-forces agreement. A U.S. presence in Iraq would have reduced Iranian influence in Baghdad and diminished the likelihood of sectarian conflict in Iraq.

A lot of this relies on the same exaggerated view of presidential power that afflicts so many pundits writing on failed domestic legislation. Rove’s argument boils down to saying that these things would have been done and they would have been successful if only Obama had been willing to do them. All of this is tied to the fantasy that Obama’s Iran policy has been anything other than the cruel, unwise continuation of his predecessor’s Iran policy. In fact, each of these claims is wrong on the merits, and none of them would have changed a thing about Iran’s nuclear program had U.S. policy been different.

http://www.theamericanconservative.com/lariso...

As we go through Rove’s list of what Obama should have done to “think strategically” about Iran, we find that he recommends doing the most foolish, irresponsible thing in each case. For instance, he also thinks the U.S. should have quickly moved to collapse Assad’s regime. A collapsed Syrian regime might be a setback for Iran, but it would be a nightmare for Syrians and their neighbors that could be far worse than their current suffering. Rove’s recommendations for “thinking strategically” are all short-sighted and suggest that neither he nor the Republican hawks that he stole them from have been thinking very seriously about any of these problems.
