I just need to say, Father, your (lightly) veiled insults always manage to wound me deeply. Yes, I confess, while you're out "working" I seduce women all day, and don't make me prove it yet again, Father. I ran an informal poll recently and determined definitively that most women would rather sit on my face and feel genuine pleasure than to listen to you bitch and moan about the President while you're allegedly working. At least I'm honest.
They would rather gain what pleasure they can without having to look at your mug or listen to your incessant prattle.

Doesn't matter. It'll always be your last attempt at offense and your last argument of defense.

The tyranny of local government is often more direct and personal, but federal tyranny is even more oppressive.

Galt finds it interesting that the same non-liberal leftwingers who scream about climate change try to block innovative solutions like ride-sharing because of ripoff cab driver union pressure.

He's lying. He's already made up his mind. In fact, it was obvious what kind of president he likes in 1996 when he co-authored the obviously unconstitutional Line Item Veto legislation. Besides, the treasonous son of a bitch just met with Al Qaeda and he wants US forces to fight shoulder-to-shoulder with Al Qaeda.
McCain is a just another big brother big government RINO. He should actually belong to the party he supports.
Agreed.

McCain has become an embarrassment to the Republican Party.

The man has a desperate need to be liked by the media.

Must be a conspiracy ..
Sort of like "Mission Accomplished" sign and
then 4000 US soldiers died
in Iraq.
The mission was to topple Saddam's regime which we did and destroy his ability to rebuild his biological, chemical and nuclear weapons program which we did.

After the Mission Accomplished speech, the attacks by insurgents began. They had been supplied with hundreds of weapons by the Iraqi army and were joined by religious radicals, al-Qaeda, who claimed Iraq the frontlines. They used guerrilla tactics. The enemy could have been anywhere or anyone.

Now, President LCN, what would you have done? Even if you should have expected this kind of unexpected resistance?

You had two choices:
1. Tuck your tail between your legs and high-tail it out of there.
2. Stay and fight.

(Can't use the excuse "I wouldn't have been there in the first place" because, after 9/11, you would have believed - like Hillary Clinton - that Saddam would find a way to rebuild and use his chemical and biological weapons. So just assume you, the President, wouldn't want to take the risk of having millions of deaths on your hands somewhere down the road if Saddam were allowed to keep thumbing up his nose at you and the rest of the world.)

Now, what would President LCN do?

Rush Limbaugh’s Long, Slow March to Irrelevance
....It’s worth nothing, however, that the dynamics putting pressure on right-wing talk radio reflect the same demographic shifts that have some Republicans concerned about their long-term viability as a national party unless they reach out beyond their base. In addition, compliant fellow travelers in the conservative media establishment may now recognize that they can’t simply dismiss the problems with right-wing talk—and Rush in particular—as a liberal wish list. Yes, Rush Limbaugh is a giant in the business. But his business is shrinking.
“Rush Limbaugh's contract will never be renewed at that kind of money again—if he gets another contract,” says Del Colliano.“There are no people coming up. Gen X doesn't care about it. Gen Y absolutely is way beyond it. Even if Rush didn’t open his big mouth [over Fluke], he still would be in trouble because the demographics are so old that you can’t sell them to the advertisers. It's over ... I think the talk-show hosts know it, too.”
“People at the top of broadcasting aren’t dumb,” concludes Bloomquist.“They can hear the rapids leading to the waterfall ahead.”

Without conservative talk radio, AM radio stations would cease to exist.

The GOP Is Now Against Tax Breaks -- If They Help the Middle Class Buy Health Care
....Republican promises to "Lower your tax burden!" and "Increase your take-home pay!" suddenly become "Get everyone addicted to the sugar!" when tax breaks help middle-class Americans pay for health insurance.
This is why today's Republicans can't admit the real reason why they oppose Obamacare: The middle-class tax breaks in Obamacare are paid for almost entirely by taxes on the richest 2 percent of Americans and corporations.
Obamacare's subsidies are like another government program that subsidizes working families, which Republicans conceived and used to support: the earned income tax credit. But today's GOP is funded by billionaires who are jealous of the people on food stamps, and millionaires who get massive tax breaks and rant against the 47 percent of Americans who "don't pay income taxes."
The Bush tax cuts were sold as a tax cut for all Americans. But while a middle-class family could take their tax break and buy a new hood for their car at a salvage yard, the richest Americans could buy a new factory with their breaks. And the worst part is they didn't buy or build a factory, they kept their money or sent it overseas.
What if I told you about a government program that cuts the deficit by billions and already is covering millions of Americans while saving kids' lives? A program that will soon help millions Americans pay for insurance they need anyway with unexpected tax breaks funded by those who can afford it? A modest, fully funded compromise solution that will keep hundreds of thousands of Americans from going bankrupt?
You should say, "Sign me up."

Tax rate reductions are beneficial, but "tax breaks" merely control behavior to make people servants of the federal government.

This is the big lie of ObamaKKKare.

The subsidies benefit only the poor and are paid for by higher taxes and higher insurance premiums paid by both the middle class and the wealthy.
