Obama must have some donkey pictures of McCain.
Sad ending for the old man.
LOL. Typical Republican. As soon as one of your own crosses the aisle and shows some common sense, you sweep him under the rug. Compromise and common sense are foreign concepts to conservatives. That is why you keep losing elections.

You cannot make this stuff up -
Rodericks' contract says he can "occupy the town-owned house at 160 Watkins Avenue, Atherton, California" free of charge as long as the city employs him. Almost free. He would have to pay for utilities. But the town would pay the gardener.
Despite having what could be considered a fruitful arrangement, Rodericks is not a resident yet.
In a report to City Council, he said he can't relocate to the Watkins house due to some "challenges beyond his control."
"challenges beyond his control."

Great work Homer!

They do ignore that FACT. The GOP's choice of those two wing nuts was a big boost to Obama's win. If Republicans ever want to win another election, they are going to have to come to their senses and stop picking candidates from the "nuts and dolts" aisle.
with most of the MS Media on the side of progressives and/or being card carrying liberals, information regarding any Republican candidate will be taken out of context, only promoted when it is negative and downplayed if it is positive.

Oh, for heaven's sake, Lincoln. Time to break that broken record.

The costs of health care is simply too high. There are very easy and practical solutions to make health care more affordable for everyone. The truly needy will always have access to health care and we will always pay for it. We'd just like to pay a lot less if it's alright with you.

By the way, more people will be uninsured by 2020 under Obamacare.

Correction.

ALL of the money will go to the employer who has the policy.

The employer will then decide whether to return the money to the employees or apply the money to future premiums.

The cost to return the money is often greater than the refund.

It gets better -
The main thing that troubled the group members was that Mr. Roderick's choice is costing the city money. With his $160,000 per year salary, Roderick's is receiving a monthly stipend of $2,500 for travel costs. He will receive that until he moves to Atherton, or June 30, 2013, whichever comes first, according to his contract.
Rodericks commutes to Atherton from a residence in Marin County, a fact that irks residents who say he should be their neighbor. The city has a house near Holbrook Palmer Park where city managers can live for free.
Maybe he should put a lien on himself.
Marin County, clearly he is a Republican with a political agenda.
Marin County is predominantly Democratic

every 'new' Obama scandal is just an old Bush scandal.

not my fault FOX won't tell you wingnuts this stuff, but if you'd like, i can lay it all out for ya. Bush had embassy attacks, IRS targeting the opposition, gun walking, NSA wiretaps of citizens and journalists, it's all out there for anyone to find if they feel the need.

i feel the need every time i see one of you hypocrites attacking Obama for something you supported when Bush was in office.

A Letter to Verizon Customers
Posted by Andy Borowitz
Dear Verizon Customers,
Yesterday it came to light that the National Security Agency has been collecting millions of phone records from you each and every day. Since that news was released, many of you have called the White House with questions and concerns about this new program. To save my time and yours, here are answers to three of the F.A.Q.s (Frequently Asked Questions) we’ve been hearing from you
1. Will I be charged extra for this service?
I’m happy to say that the answer is no. While the harvesting and surveillance of your domestic phone calls were not a part of your original Verizon service contract, the National Security Agency is providing this service entirely free of charge.
2. If I add a phone to my account, will those calls also be monitored?
Once again, the answer is good news. If you want to add a child or any other family member to your Verizon account, their phone calls—whom they called, when, and the duration of the call—will all be monitored by the United States government, at no additional cost.
3. Can the National Security Agency help me understand my Verizon bill?
Unfortunately, no. The National Security Agency has tried, but failed, to understand Verizon’s bills. Pease call Verizon customer service and follow the series of electronic prompts.
I hope I’ve helped clear up some of the confusion about this exciting new program. But if you have any further questions, please don’t hesitate to call the White House. Joe Biden is standing by.
God bless America,
President Obama
This isn't real, right? This is a joke, correct?

"If you want to add a child or any other family member to your Verizon account, their phone calls...will all be monitored by the United States government at no additional cost."

This has to be a joke. But you got me!

Sorry, Homer. Can't blame this overreaching abuse of power on anyone but Obama. He drew the line dividing us up into either his "friends" or his "enemies" category.
Obama's actually managed to make us forget we still have real enemies.
It is amazing how you got from here to here. You are deranged.

Look Out Below, The Obamacare Chaos Is Coming

The biggest political problem faced by so-called “liberals” and so-called “progressives” in President Obama’s second term is how to prevent voters from holding them politically responsible as the public comes to realize how badly they were lied to during the first Obama term to win passage of Obamacare.

Most supporters of Obamacare embraced it because of a principled belief that everyone should have access to essential healthcare.

But even the establishment, still Democrat dominated, CBO admits that after 10 years of implementation, Obamacare will still leave 30 million uninsured.

Just wait until the broad realization dawns that the harsh reality of Obamacare is that tens of millions will lose their employer provided insurance because of the perverse incentives under the program. Even the establishment CBO admits that at least 7 million, and as many as 20 million, will lose their employer coverage. In February, CBO reported that “in 2019 [5 years after Obamacare is implemented], an estimated 12 million people who would have had an offer of employment-based coverage under prior law will lose their offer under current law [aka ‘Obamacare’].”

But that report is just the early breeze of the coming storm. The Obamacare employer mandate requires all employers of 50 or more full time workers to purchase the expensive insurance for those employees that Kathleen Sebelius (“The Secretary shall determine”) specifies that they must buy. But that mandate is enforced by a penalty of $2,000 per worker, which may be only 10% of the average cost of family coverage under the Sebelius requirements.

Moreover, workers who do not receive employer provided coverage are eligible to purchase their health insurance on the state Exchanges with extensive taxpayer subsidies to help cover the cost. Indeed, in the Exchanges, low and moderate income workers can even get subsidies covering their out-of-pocket expenses. Employers can terminate their employee coverage, give their workers a raise with part of the savings, and let the taxpayers bear the cost of subsidizing their coverage in the Exchanges. Former CBO Director Douglas Holtz-Eakin estimated in a study for the American Action Forum that more than 40 million workers would lose their employer coverage due to these perverse incentives. It’s going to be even worse than that, when all of the cost increasing impacts of Obamacare are realized.

So much for President Obama’s oft repeated first term promise that “If you like your health insurance, you can keep it. No one is going to take that away from you.” CONTINUED...
