Hatred of Obama could lead to GOP overreach.

Republican failure ahead ...

A few of us on the left have been arguing that the current scandal-mania gripping the GOP risks bringing about a rerun of 1998, when the frenzy amid the Monica Lewinsky revelations led the GOP to overreach, resulting in backlash.

Now we have a longtime respected nonpartisan observer, Charlie Cook, arguing that this possibility is very real. Cook’s piece, entitled “Republicans’ hatred of Obama blinds them to public disinterest in scandals,” notes that the scandals have not moved the needle at all on Obama’s approval rating, just as happened in 1998:

The simple fact is that although the Republican sharks are circling, at least so far, there isn’t a trace of blood in the water…Maybe that will change. Maybe these allegations will start getting traction with voters. But it might just be that Americans are more focused on an economy that is gradually coming out of the longest and deepest economic downturn since the Great Depression.

One wonders how long Republicans are going to bark up this tree, perhaps the wrong tree, while they ignore their own party’s problems, which were shown to be profound in the most recent elections. Clearly none of these recent issues has had a real impact on voters yet. Republicans seem to be betting everything on them, just as they did in 1998 — about which even Newt Gingrich (who was House speaker that year) commented recently to NPR,“I think we overreached in ’98.”

Republicans and conservatives who are so consumed by these “scandals” should ask themselves why, despite wall-to-wall media attention and the constant focus inside the Beltway — some are even talking about grounds for impeachment — Obama’s job-approval needle hasn’t moved…Clearly Republicans hope the public will begin to respond. But at what point do they decide that maybe voters might be more interested in other issues or worries than about politicians on one side pointing fingers and throwing allegations at those on the other side? At what point might the GOP conclude that it is just digging the hole a little deeper?

Cook wrote this before the release of today’s Washington Post poll, which actually confirms his diagnosis very neatly. The Post poll finds a majority believes the Obama administration is trying to “cover up” facts about the IRS scandal and that a plurality thinks it is trying to cover up Benghazi facts. These numbers are at odds with yesterday’s CNN poll, which found more Americans think Obama is being truthful. But that aside, in spite of these negative findings about the scandals, the Post poll also finds that Obama’s approval rating is holding steady, at 51 percent, and the economy may be the reason why: Majorities believe the economy is beginning to recover and are optimistic about where the economy will go in the next year.

The 14 Defining Characteristics of Liberal Hypocrite Fascists:
7. Obsession with National Security – in terms of protecting radical Islam from being called “terrorists,” the PC Orwellian term,“man-caused disaster” is substituted, and weak-knee Apology Tours are given by a President who invokes his Muslim middle name.
8. Religion and Government are Intertwined - Governments in fascist nations ban Christian religion and carefully enforce separation, but are eager to kow tow to Sharia law so “they will like us.”
9. Corporate Power is Protected - The industrial and business aristocracy of a fascist nation often are the ones who put union leaders into power, creating a mutually beneficial business/government relationship and power elite for unions, like the kinds excused from the harmful economic effects of ObamaCare.
10. Labor Power is Suppressed – By union leaders who push Democrats to promote “Card Check” where secret ballots are no longer allowed so all will be afraid to publicly vote union or NOT.
11. Disdain for Intellectuals and the Arts - Fascist nations tend to promote and tolerate open hostility to patriotic art and religion.(as in “clinging to guns and religion”) It is not uncommon for elitist professors and other academics to not tolerate non-liberal viewpoints on campus. Free expression in the arts and letters is openly attacked unless it promotes promiscuity or denigrates the Christian Faith. i.e. feces and ants crawling all over a statue of the Blessed Mother –that expression of art is protected; publishing anything about Mohammed—banned.
12. Obsession with Crime and Punishment - Under fascist regimes, the president and his cabinet ignore the constitution and persecute states who adhere to existing immigration law, while looking the other way at states with “sanctuary cities” who ignore the law. The police are often sued by race baiters and career malcontents. There is talk of a brown shirt nation, where only those who agree with the president are allowed to be armed. Violent criminals are protected from death, while innocent babies are sacrificed for “convenience”. often a national police force with virtually unlimited power in fascist nations.
13. Rampant Cronyism and Corruption - Fascist regimes almost always are governed by groups of friends and associates who appoint each other to government positions and use governmental power and authority to protect their friends from accountability—whether in Chicago or for reasons like Benghazi or Fast and Furious.. It is not uncommon in fascist regimes for national resources and even treasures to be appropriated or even outright stolen by government leaders because accomplishing liberal goals of changing America by redistribution is most important..
14. Fraudulent Elections - Sometimes elections in fascist nations are a complete sham. Other times elections are manipulated by smear campaigns by the media lapdogs who are overwhelmingly liberal Democrats.(i.e. manipulating what Romney said about “binders” of women, while ignoring obama’s lies about so many affiliations and scandals and lack of record). Until forced to, they did not acknowledge sham groups like ACORN who were busy committing voter fraud. Liberals are currently issuing ID cards so that even illegal aliens will be able to exercise the rights formerly only granted to US citizens—like voting locally.

Republican stock market crash of 2008 is the major issue
OBAMAS HERO wrote:
Obama's position on abortion is more extreme than any pro-abortion Democrat. One of Obama's first acts as president was to issue an executive order that lifted a ban on using taxpayer money to fund international 'family planning' groups who perform abortions around the world. As an Illinois State Senator, he publicly defended infanticide, the killing of living, breathing babies who survived late-term abortions. Even Hillary Clinton voted for the Born Alive Protection Act, the legislation in the U.S. Senate that was akin to the Illinois legislation that Obama opposed. Obama has shown that he is at heart a COLD-BLOODED MASS MURDERER. For people that have argued Obama is a Christian, which he indeed claims, I urge you to look at what his version of Christianity actually is. Obama has said: "I'm rooted in the Christian tradition. I believe that there are many paths to the same place, and that is a belief that there is a higher power, a belief that we are connected as a people." That is a direct denial of Christ as the only way to salvation, Jesus says he is the only way: John 14:6 - "Jesus said unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man comes unto the Father, but by me."

A Philadelphia jury has found Dr. Kermit Gosnell guilty on three of four counts of first-degree murder, the Philadelphia Inquirer and NBC News report.
Gosnell, a longtime abortion provider, was accused of killing four babies and one female patient, among numerous other charges. Gosnell was acquitted in the fourth baby's death.
The jury reached the verdict Monday after initially splitting on two of the over 200 counts in the case, including racketeering and conspiracy charges, as well as abortion law violations.
More from the Associated Press:
A Philadelphia abortion doctor was found guilty Monday of first-degree murder and could face execution in the deaths of three babies who authorities say were delivered alive and then killed with scissors at his grimy clinic, in a case that became a flashpoint in the nation's debate over abortion.
Dr. Kermit Gosnell, 72, was cleared in the death of a fourth baby, who prosecutors say let out a soft whimper before he snipped its neck.
Gosnell was also found guilty of involuntary manslaughter in the drug-overdose death of a patient who had undergone an abortion.
OBAMA IS THE MOST EVIL PRESIDENT IN USA HISTORY!!!!!

Meet Monsanto’s prime lobbyist, Barack Obama bin Lying:

After his victory in the 2008 election, Obama filled key posts with Monsanto people, in federal agencies that wield tremendous force in food issues, the USDA and the FDA:

At the USDA, as the director of the National Institute of Food and Agriculture, Roger Beachy, former director of the Monsanto Danforth Center.

As deputy commissioner of the FDA, the new food-safety-issues czar, the infamous Michael Taylor, former vice-president for public policy for Monsanto. Taylor had been instrumental in getting approval for Monsanto’s genetically engineered bovine growth hormone.

As commissioner of the USDA, Iowa governor, Tom Vilsack. Vilsack had set up a national group, the Governors’ Biotechnology Partnership, and had been given a Governor of the Year Award by the Biotechnology Industry Organization, whose members include Monsanto.

As the new Agriculture Trade Representative, who would push GMOs for export, Islam Siddiqui, a former Monsanto lobbyist.

As the new counsel for the USDA, Ramona Romero, who had been corporate counsel for another biotech giant, DuPont.

As the new head of the USAID, Rajiv Shah, who had previously worked in key positions for the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, a major funder of GMO agriculture research.

We should also remember that Obama’s secretary of state, Hillary Clinton, once worked for the Rose law firm. That firm was counsel to Monsanto.

Obama nominated Elena Kagan to the US Supreme Court. Kagan, as federal solicitor general, had previously argued for Monsanto in the Monsanto v. Geertson seed case before the Supreme Court.

The deck was stacked. Obama hadn’t simply made honest mistakes. Obama hadn’t just failed to exercise proper oversight in selecting appointees. He was staking out territory on behalf of Monsanto and other GMO corporate giants.

Obama and you deranged democrats are poisoning the food supply and all you can do is use your "I am an idiot" defense RealDave......

You deranged democrats and Obama bin Lying are poisoning the food supply and all you can do is rag on republicans...

From Patrick's perspective, Michelle Obama's campaign for home gardens and clean nutritious food suddenly looks like a diversion, a cover story floated to obscure what her husband has actually been doing.

Nor does it seem coincidental that two of the Obama's biggest supporters, Bill Gates and George Soros, purchased 900,000 and 500,000 shares of Monsanto stock..

Since when is eating genetically modified shit good you dumbass?? When you idiot???

OBAMA MAY NOT BE A VICTIM BUT HE IS FULLY CONTROLLED...You and them should all be arrested and tried for crimes against nature and human kind. You are Corrupt and evil!

You idiot will eat anything your handlers or obama slips or shits on your plate...
