Don’t Repeal Any Laws, Repeal John Boehner

It would be impossible to name the craziest thing said by a Republican so far this year. This year? This week.
New entrants arrive constantly and the competition is feral. And yet paradoxically they don’t even shock anymore. But one recent Republican remark should arrest you and deserves your contemplation: John Boehner’s statement on Face the Nation Sunday that he and his House Republicans “ought to be judged on how many laws we repeal.”

It’s not an outrageous statement in the Obama-wants-to-impose-Sharia vein, but in its way it’s more disturbing. The Republican Party now sees dysfunction as not just an unfortunate consequence of a set of historical factors, something that they might work every now and again to correct. Now, the Republican Party sees dysfunction as its mission.

....This isn’t a partisan crisis. It’s a historical crisis. And the political system can’t solve it. We need leaders from other walks of life, especially from the various branches of the business world, to stand up and say to the Republicans that dysfunction cannot be your mission. You must govern. Govern conservatively, but govern. And we need, as I’ve said before, big-dollar organizations that can boot some of these people out of office and replace them with a few Dick Lugars. We don’t need to repeal any laws. Repealing a hundred or so people is what we need.

A Trifecta of Boot Licking Uncle Toms Defending George Zimmerman: Who is the Worst One? Larry Elder, Pastor Manning, or Jesse Lee Peterson?

Black conservatism is a very lucrative business. It takes few resources to begin one's hustle. There are boosters who will back your play. The risks are minimal. Their public is eager to be grifted--is there no easier scam than taking money from the willing? And the skills that one needs to be successful in the black conservative con game are minimal. It is a real quota, and an internalized projection of what conservatives say "affirmative action" policies produce in the workplace: skin color, a hostility towards African-Americans, and a heartbeat are all that one needs to be a successful black conservative media darling. Ability is welcome but secondary and coincidental to one's skin color.

The black conservatives only have to sit around until needed, secure in their break in case of emergency bubble that the White Right has them encased within. While sitting there, the checks continue because they are on retainer. Quite a good deal.

All that is required to be a successful black conservative in the Fox News Tea Party GOP mold is to be a professional contrarian who stands against any position taken by the "civil rights establishment", a willingness to degrade black Americans for the pleasure of white racists, and to have little or no self-respect. The more self-hating and contemptible a black conservative's position on a given political issue, the higher the bounty and pay.

maybe instead of tearing down the black liberals you should spend more time telling us what black conservatives are being paid to say.

A Washington Post-ABC poll out Tuesday morning shows what's keeping Congressional Democrats more popular than their Republican counterparts — approval within their own parties.
The poll asked both self-described Democrats and Republicans — including "leaners" — if they think their own parties are taking things in the right or wrong direction. Democrats approved of their party's direction, with 72% saying leadership was taking the party in the right direction to just 21% who said it was taking things in the wrong direction.
But Republicans largely disapprove of their own party's leadership, as has been the case for quite some time now. Just 37% of self-identified Republicans and Republican "leaners" say leadership is taking the party in the right direction. Meanwhile, 52% say it's taking things in the wrong direction.
That's a big change from last August, when Republicans approved of their leadership by a 58-32 margin.
It also contributes to the overall poor perception of Congressional Republicans across party lines. According to a new McClatchy-Marist poll, just 22% approve of the job Congressional Republicans are doing, compared with 33% who say the same about Democrats.

Right Wing Media Continues to Drag Out Black Conservatives to Attack Obama's Speech on Race

I'm not sure just how many more of these black conservatives the media can manage to drag out there to go after President Obama and the speech he gave this Friday on what the George Zimmerman verdict means for the state of race relations in America, but this Saturday, old HuckaJesus and his producers at Fox managed to find one more to attack President Obama -- and of course repeat, verbatim, every Republican talking point we've been hearing for ages now.

I don't know what the salary is to be a spokespuppet for Rep. Dana Rohrabacher like Tara Setmayer, who appeared on Huckabee's show this Saturday and attacked President Obama's speech, but my guess is someone is paying her well with a lot of wingnut welfare for her to be willing to spread this much hatred and bullshit on national television and still look herself in the mirror when she gets up the next morning.

No, actually, it is Obama's government. It always has been. His vision. His base. His ObamaCare. His sequester. His killing bin Laden. His one-party system. His taxes. His invisible wars. His cover-ups. His welfare state. His way or the highway.
He just blames anyone who doesn't recognize that and republicans for his own failures.
This country is literally being held captive by Obama's government.
His approval rating dropped 8 points from last month according to a CNN poll on Monday with 45% approval, 54% disapproval.
Those numbers were reversed just two months ago.
Republicans could have easily ended the sequester by passing a budget,but like you they refused to take responsibility. Republicans are refusing to uphold the oath of their public office to uphold and preserve the democratic government.

carol's the one who needs to sue FOX.
Why would I sue the only network who hasn't been accused of altering the facts to protect or distract from wrongdoing on the part of those in power and who are the bulldogs looking out for the folks and not lapdogs looking out for this administration?

The only time Fox had to make a retraction was when the video of a black NAACP woman's comments were taken out of context. Fox wasn't the only network who ran it and Obama believed it so much, he fired her.

O'Reilly showed remorse and blamed himself and his research team for not doing their job thoroughly that one time.

Dan Rather was fired for making up lies about Bush.
NBC caught/apologized for editing Zimmerman's dispatch call.
NBC sued for same.
MSNBC caught/apologized editing Biden's comments about gun control.
MSNBC caught lying about a Romney ad.
ABC caught lying about gun control.
NBC caught editing Romney's comments.

Nevermind the New York Times who've been discredited so many times I lost count.

All of them remain absolutely silent when the people need to know what's going on with possible abuses of power in a liberal administration. If they don't have anything on conservatives, they just make it up.

So, no, I wouldn't trust getting my news from any other source.

It's why O'Reilly and Fox News was rated the #1 trusted news source by Suffolk University in Boston - a liberal university.

And Dan Rather was fired.

The highest recorded temperatures were in 1913.
And let's not forget the Ice Age.
The magnetic poles are separating. It's also a natural phenomenon like cyclic climate patterns - both being the most plausible causes for the recent and unusual storms, severe winters, tornados and present heat wave.
Wrong Carol, whatever is happening to the magnetic poles is having anything to do with the severe weather we've been having. It's the increase in CO2 in the atmosphere which is due to burning fossil fuels.
The ice age happened over millennia and had to do with continental drift and subsequent volcanic activity.
Here's what Dr. Richard Muller a scientist funded by the Koch brothers to throw doubt on climate change had to say on the issue;
"Three years ago I identified problems in previous climate studies that, in my mind, threw doubt on the very existence of global warming. Last year, following an intensive research effort involving a dozen scientists, I concluded that global warming was real and that the prior estimates of the rate of warming were correct. I’m now going a step further: Humans are almost entirely the cause.”

No, that's not how it works. Real leaders don't come up with the idea of a sequester, sign it, make doomsday speeches to get his way and then blames the other side for standing their ground.

The majority of Americans wanted the sequester cuts to go even deeper.

The doomsday speeches/temper tantrums didn't work. He's punishing everyone now - closing the WH doors, cancelling traditional military events, hurting public servants such as firemen - as much as possible but hosts lavish galas at the WH, goes on lavish trips and plays golf with Tiger Woods.

No, this is not how it works.

Real leaders don't pitch a fit and pout because they refuse to work and compromise with those who represent the other half of the nation.
