Barack Obama, our next President

"The road ahead will be long. Our climb will be steep," Obama cautioned. Young and charismatic but with little experience on the national level, Obama smashed through racial barriers and easily defeated ... Full Story

When he doesn't go and attend 60% of the detailed presidential daily briefings that come from the CIA and thinks he can just skim it, skim the summary paper on his iPad instead of sitting down and engaging in what -- I was in the White House with George Herbert Walker Bush. He took that brief everyday. George W. Bush took it everyday and I believe that Bill Clinton took it everyday. This president thinks he's smarter than those guys and he doesn't have to engage in the discussion.

Fine son. Let's take YOUR position of my 'throwing out the facts.'

If true, it should be easy for you to provide them. And if you're claim is going to be you already have in previous posts, then you're right back to your right wing conspiracy 'analysis' as your proof instead of looking at the numbers like the FRB.

And that would prove you have no facts, which would mean you're right back here... again... as usual.

After all, missing links in wiki, quoting AEI representatives on what they believe doesn't constitute anything near facts in the real world... just their opinions.

Rush Limbaugh and the Republicans' vote-losing sex phobia
Between Limbaugh's 'slut' insult and Santorum's prohibitionism, it seems that GOP now stands for Grand Old Puritan party
....The sense that a candidate is having sex is a much more powerful and positive attribute than the sense that he is not.(Bill Clinton, most obviously.)
That is, actually, the corner the Republicans have gotten themselves into now. For some time, the conservative subtext has been to suggest that the liberals were less flesh-and-blood than the visceral Republicans. One was fey, the other strong. One snobbish and remote, the other popular and direct. The message here was simple: Republican men are men.
The present field of Republican men, together with Rush's anger at liberals for having sex, recasts these roles. The liberals, after a long time in the wilderness, are emerging as the much more sexy bunch.

The Tea Party Turns on Republicans, Threatens to Sit Out 2014

When you organize a protest and only 6 people show, including yourself, your movement might be in serious trouble.

Waving a rather sad, given the context, but large “Don’t Tread on Me” flag, Juan Fiol, a Miami real estate broker and Marco Rubio protest organizer, wondered where everyone was.“It was supposed to be a big event,” he told Naples News, as he stood with the five other Tea Partiers to protest Senator Marco Rubio (R-FLA) for being a “back-stabber” and a “liar” over immigration reform. That desolate July protest must have stung.

....Republicans keep trying to fool the Tea Party just like they fool voters; for example, they’re trying to sell Rubio’s immigration reform as border security. But the Republican Party bred and fed a particularly virulent strain of paranoia in order to turn the Tea Party against their own best economic interests and keep them misinformed. It was inevitable that at some point, that paranoia would turn on the Republican Party – and it looks like that’s beginning to happen.

Some of the embittered Tea might sit out 2014, but don’t breathe a sigh of relief yet. Finding no national platform, the Tea Party is following the Republican game plan of 40-50 years ago. Tea Partiers are infiltrating on the local level, running for “school boards, county commissions and city councils, focusing on issues such as unfunded pension liabilities and sewer system repairs,” according to Naples News. So the people who know the least about government and governing and hate government the most want to be in charge of it. Since no one will hand them the national reins, they’re taking over on a local level. What could go wrong?

Meanwhile, House Republicans remain clueless and Foxified against the national reality. They only care that they can get re-elected; they don’t care what they are doing to their party.

Thus the party vaunting the morality of self-interest now has to live with the downside of self-interest as a guiding principle. It turns out that it’s not all the conservative idea of a good time — denying poor people food and cheering the deaths of the unemployed.

Eventually, the self-interest they gloat about bites them in the bum and even the Republican Party can’t force their own self-interested members to behave anymore. Now the activists are threatening to stay home because the GOP didn’t hate on immigrants enough. Let’s not forget, it was the Republican Party who taught the Tea Party how to control via terror, fits, and tantrums.

Turns out, it was the Republican Party and not President Obama who took it upon themselves to tread on the Tea Party. That was predictable, as is their rage at being used.

Tick tock, Governors Scott and Kasich.

Chris Wallace Rips Eric Cantor as Fox News Drops a Reality Bomb on House Republicans

Chris Wallace tore through Eric Cantor with some tough realistic question on Fox News Sunday, and proved that Fox News is frighteningly more in touch with reality than House Republicans.

"Is what you have been doing the best way to spend Congress’s time when you are about to go on recess for five full weeks?"

"But Congressman, rightly or wrongly, none of these bills that you passed is going to become law. Your own members say they’re not going to pass the Senate. The president won’t sign them. Let’s talk reality. You haven’t passed a Farm Bill. You’ve only passed 4 of the 12 appropriations bills you’re supposed to pass. We face a government shutdown and debt limit in the fall. Again, is the best way to spend your time passing bills that aren’t going to become law?"

Fox News always had the broader best interests of the Republican Party at heart. Even they see that the behavior of the House Republican majority is hurting their party. Eric Cantor lost his cool for a bit during the interview, because he isn’t used to being pushed. He is especially not used to being pushed by Fox News.

Wallace ripped into all of Cantor’s weak spots, and the Majority Leader did himself no favors by retreating back to old talking points.

Consider this interview a Fox News style intervention. House Republicans have a problem, and not even their loving family members at Fox can convince them that they need help.

According to one of Obama's foreign-policy staffers, Obama prefers to "lead from behind."

Like Chauncey Gardiner, the character played by Peter Sellers in the 1979 movie "Being There" - a clueless gardener who is mistaken for a Washington eminence and becomes a presidential adviser - after asked if you can stimulate growth through temporary incentives, Gardiner says, "As long as the roots are not severed, all is well and all will be well in the garden."

"First comes the spring and summer," he explains, "but then we have fall and winter. And then we get spring and summer again." The president is awed as Gardiner sums up, "There will be growth in the spring."

Kind of reminds you of Barack Obama's approach to the federal budget.

Congressional Budget Office Director Douglas Elmendorf was asked last week if the CBO had prepared estimates in a speech Obama had made about $4 trillion in long-term spending cuts - but without any specifics. "We don't estimate speeches," Elmendorf, a Democrat, explained. "We need much more specificity than was provided in that speech for us to do our analysis."

Evidently "first we have the spring and summer" was not enough.
