Barack Obama, our next President

When you become “outraged” over an image of a Marine holding an umbrella for the President (implying he’s some elitist who refuses to even hold his own umbrella) you simply prove how desperately pathetic your party has become." http://www.forwardprogressives.com/wp-content...
Done playing?

How about you going back and trying to defend the IRS having an enemy list? On second thought, you were really bad at that.

Fox News Troglodytes Cheer Beefcake Conservatism
A visit to the Fox News community web site, Fox Nation, is always an adventure that yields surprises and curiosities. But even amongst the brazen lies and flagrant distortions, there are some gems of idiocy that stand out. For instance…
In an item about a study on “the Ancestral Logic of Politics,” the Fox Nationalists slapped on a this headline:“Strong Men Lean Conservative,” In doing so they have made their best case yet for the right-wing sloganeering to “Take our country back – to the Stone Age.”
The study referenced in the article examined and compared data on bicep size, socioeconomic status, and support for economic redistribution. What the researchers concluded was that upper-body strength “may reflect psychological traits that evolved in response to our early ancestral environments.”
In other words, physically domineering specimens were more inclined to take what they want and refuse to share. Sounds pretty much like every Randian Teabagger in the GOP (Greedy One Percent). It is a perfect description of the rightist ideology of self-interest above all. It’s what shapes the Republican agenda of opposing regulations that protect people, as well as taxes used to provide food, housing, and other social services to the sick, the elderly, and the poor (known to right-wingers as “the weak”).
The Fox interpretation of this study is typically shallow in that they regard physical strength in the same way that our Neanderthal ancestors did – as a class-based asset. The more powerful members of the community were once elevated to leadership posts by virtue of their ability to bully everybody else. And that’s pretty much the way Tea-publicans want it to be today, although they have modified the definition of strength to include financial muscle. Hence their reverence for (and subservience to) wealthy upper-crusters like the Koch brothers.
It’s rather amusing that Fox chose to illustrate their posting with body-builder-turned-governor Arnold Schwarzenegger – a pot-smoking, pro-choice, steroidal, Hollywood mogul, environmentalist, who married a Kennedy and then cheated on her (fathering a child with his Guatemalan maid). What better role model for the egocentric selfishness of modern conservatism that is so smitten with swaggering blowhards and chicken-hawks?

Touchy, touchy, you taking offense at a study that has such earth shattering importance is amusing.

<quoted text> If Obama had accomplished even half of what you have accused him of doing then he must truly be a master at leadership to get everyone in America to go along with it.
What you call leadership others call deception and being down right immature towards people who don't agree with him. Doesn't take much to be mean.

<quoted text> You have a good interesting take on these non-scandals, except on the I.R.S. I think that you underestimate how tired most Americans have become over the wealthy getting away without paying their taxes through tax loopholes, off-shoring , and non-reform tax reform---Americans think that those big corporate vested interests that those Tea Party SuperPacs support haven't paid enough in taxes.
Many, including moi have battled with the IRS over matters large and small, it was a scandal waiting to happen so to speak.

But the TeaParty and 9/12 goofballs who were delayed or denied "failed" to present the proper paperwork. Simple deal__some of the yayhoos's couldn't get approved after two-three years__DUH.

Again, after the Citizens United ruling the IRS got hit with 70,000 applications__a bunch of folks looking for free money for fancy websites such as mycongressmanisnuts.com It doesn't matter__the harm is done.

No one died by IED though.

" For five days, reporters at the Associated Press had been sitting on a big scoop about a foiled al-Qaeda plot at the request of CIA officials. Then, in a hastily scheduled Monday morning meeting, the journalists were asked by agency officials to hold off on publishing the story for just one more day.

The CIA officials, who had initially cited national security concerns in an attempt to delay publication, no longer had those worries, according to individuals familiar with the exchange. Instead, the Obama administration was planning to announce the successful counterterrorism operation that Tuesday…

Now, some members of Congress and media advocates are questioning why the administration viewed the leak that led to the May 7 AP story as so grave."

Because it wasn't. Obama used the DOJ to punish reporters who wouldn't kowtow to their orders.
