Barack Obama, our next President

We're definitely in dangerous waters. It's easier to empathize with political enemies in gulags in communist countries.

The good news is Obama's ratings are falling significantly.

People are starting to wake up to the reality Obamacare isn't going to work. For a lot of people, it's not going to be free and will cost them a lot of money.

It might take some time but, with Obamacare looming and the findings of the ongoing investigations by the Congressional and Senate Finance Committees approaching, hopefully, more people will figure it out.

Evidence Is In -- Again -- GOP 'Trickledown' Economics a Failure

For several years the same "cut deficits at any cost, austerity for the poor and middle class" economics that is espoused daily by the Republican Party in the U.S, has swept the capitals of Europe. It has been a disaster. GDP in the Euro-area dropped in 2012 and continued to decline in 2013.

At last week's meeting of the G-20 finance ministers -- whose governments oversee 90 percent of the world economy -- there was a clear consensus on the need for robust fiscal stimulus in order to spur worldwide economic growth and a rejection of austerity.

....But this should not come as any surprise to anyone with even a modicum of memory. This is not the first time in recent history that the evidence has indisputably shown the bankruptcy of GOP economic policies. It was just five years ago this September that the same "trickle down" economic policies resulted in the greatest financial and economic collapse in 60 years.

When the Republicans passed the Bush tax cuts in 2003, they promised massive economic growth. The notion that cutting taxes for the rich would "lift all boats" turned out to be sheer fantasy. The Bush years were the first period in modern American economic history to experience zero private sector job growth -- zero.

And of course the Republican commitment to allowing Wall Street bankers and speculators to run wild ultimately resulted in the September, 2008 financial meltdown.

That commitment has not waned. The House GOP plans to cut $200 million from the budget of the Security and Exchange Commission (SEC) that would have been spent on investigations and enforcement actions against Wall Street. Note, by the way, that since the SEC is paid for by Wall Street, the $200 million will find its way directly into the pockets of the big Wall Street banks.

The lesson is simple. The evidence is in. If you believe the Republican notion that economic growth happens from the top down, I have some great swampland to sell you.

<quoted text> Americans in greater numbers disapprove of Republicans in Congress --they are pushing this country way off the track with their obstruction of President Barack Obama's policies which have already been passed in the Congress and upheld by the Supreme Court.

There is a silver lining in the new numbers for Democrats: Although President Obama’s numbers are sliding, he remains significantly more popular than Republicans in the House of Representatives. In the Marist-McClatchy poll, the House GOP’s approval rating sits at a dismal 22 percent, while the Washington Post-ABC News poll finds that 52 percent of Republicans believe that GOP leaders are taking the party in the wrong direction (compared to just 37 percent who say that headed in the right direction). And, unlike President Obama, House Republicans still have to face the voters next November." http://www.nationalmemo.com/polls-obamas-appr...
Republican control of the House after the 2014 election is a given.

The only question is control of the Senate.

For the First Time Since 1994 A Majority of Republicans Are Dissatisfied With Their Party

Right when you thought Republicans weren’t very clever, seeing as they are so easily played by the GOP elites, they go and do something that appears remotely cognizant of reality, like disapproving of their party’s leadership.

For the first time in six poll results dating to 1994, a majority (52%) of Republicans and Republican-leaning Independents say their party is going astray, according to a new poll for ABC by Langer Research Associates.

Only 37% of Republicans and Republican-leaning Independents say their leaders are taking the GOP in the right direction. A stunning fifty-two percent say their own leaders are headed the wrong way,“up 20 points from last August (when the White House seemed winnable) and a majority for the first time in six poll results dating to 1994.”

....Before we rush to praise the base for finally waking up, we should ask the same question too few asked about ObamaCare. I would posit that perhaps the answer is that conservatives feel the party is not far right enough, just as liberals felt ObamaCare wasn’t good enough because it wasn’t universal healthcare.

However, a recent poll showed that 49% of Republicans think their party should compromise with Obama more. So, Republicans are caught between the tea-leading-the-(leaderless)Ho use and the closed door to the White House. It may be truly that the tea conservatives are destroying the Republican party, which they hijacked with the party’s help via gerrymandering. Some call it karma for cheating, but it’s sorta sad in its easy predictability.

Even Republicans know their party is a bucket of fail now, but naturally, this information will never reach the House of Representatives or alter the course of the parasites (House tea Republicans) feeding off of a base so misinformed about reality that they still blame Obama for the bank bailouts. We could all see where this was leading way back in 2010, when Sarah Palin was their chosen puppet leader.

(Reuters)- President Barack Obama on Monday called the targeting of conservative groups by U.S. tax officials "outrageous" and said that any Internal Revenue Service employees involved would be held accountable.

"We'll wait and see what exactly all the details and the facts are. But I've got no patience with it," Obama said. "I will not tolerate it. And we will make sure that we find out exactly what happened."

So? Has he found out anything? That was over two months ago.

No one has been fired. In fact, key players have been promoted.

He called the Benghazi scandal a "sideshow" but CNN is even asking about the survivors and why they aren't speaking up.

Is this really too hard for you?

The controversy over George Zimmerman's acquittal for murdering Trayvon Martin is Christmas in July for black conservatives. The professional best black friends for white conservatives who defend George Zimmerman--and by extension the White Right--are in high demand.

if that's what black people think of black conservatives then i'm not going to get myself too worked up about what any of them have to say about racism.

If 'Obama stays out of Israel' that means no United States military aid to Israel which makes it extremely likely that Israel would cease to exist as a state. Is that what you really want? You must hate the Jews and think that they don't deserve a homeland as equally as the Palestinian people deserve one in the Middle East.

The Treasury Department's inspector general stated 6 progressive groups were targeted compared to 292 conservative groups.

Secrets of the Neocon Noir

Why I'd make a lousy black conservative

A friend of mine once referred to a prominent black conservative writer as a "blackface mercenary." In kind of a knee-jerk response, I agreed, since I disagree with most so-called black conservatives.

On deeper reflection, I asked myself: is that really a fair characterization? And then I recalled a curious little essay by one black neo-conservative writer on how hip-hop holds blacks back. It dawned on me then that there really is a simple formula to being a neo-conservative Negro columnist:

You first take small incidents out of day-to-day experience and cast them as proof of a stereotypical weakness about blacks or African American culture more broadly. Then you caustically deride black leaders as compromised victimologists who would excuse even the most absurd behavior. And finally, you praise the virtues of a "mainstream" (read: white) common sense that knows better. This is a playbook worth studying carefully since, I'm told, the job pays well.

(Forgot to add the last part.)
But it's quite remarkable. And worrisome.
The Magic Negro is desperate to change the conversation. He tells Americans they should tolerate young black thugs and then today he says that he wants to revive America's Middle Class. Hilarious stuff. Four and a half years of confused bungling, lying, welfare increases and scandal and now the Magic Negro suddenly declares he wants to fix the economy!!!!!

Meanwhile, Jay Carney gets into a cat fight with MSNBC's Joe Scarborough, refusing to answer anything about the IRS scandal calling it ""the line pushed by Republicans who want Washington to be focused on scandals instead of the economy."

And China is throwing its weight around against Taiwan, Vietnam, the Philippines, Japan and anyone floating in the South China Sea or within a thousand miles of it while increasing its military might through stolen technology from the West....

And the Magic Negro?

He golfs, dances, makes racist speeches, issues unconstitutional executive orders and then lies his ass-off at press conferences knowing that the Fifth Column will support his diversions away from his corruption scandals.

This is the Left's New Normal.

Republican House Speaker Boner can't get anything done and likes it that way . Unfortunately, Americans see things like Obama does , problems in the country are too big now and doing nothing about them is unacceptable. Republicans are bracing themselves for losing big in 2014; Democrats gain their greatest control over both Houses. Why else are some desperate Republican leaders even considering Christine O'Donnell as a 'viable candidate'. All they have left is to hope in hocus pocus and crack pot witch craft to save their skins now .:-D
