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

What do you not get? The Dems were the minority, the GOP lost their majority to bribery. So, who's fault was it that the GOP didn't have enough votes to pass their own legislation in their own GOP controlled Senate?

I never thought Bush would lie about this like he did. All for a war about oil. A scheme to get his oil buddies rich while securing an oil rich friendly nation.
That's what I was thinking at the time. bushie boy made the threat sound ominous and immediate and implied it was tied to 9/11.

SEATTLE (The Borowitz Report)—Jeff Bezos, the founder of Amazon.com , told reporters today that his reported purchase of the Washington Post was a “gigantic mix-up,” explaining that he had clicked on the newspaper by mistake.

“I guess I was just kind of browsing through their website and not paying close attention to what I was doing,” he said.“No way did I intend to buy anything.”

Mr. Bezos said he had been oblivious to his online shopping error until earlier today, when he saw an unusual charge for two hundred and fifty million dollars on his American Express statement.

After investigating with the credit-card company, he was informed that he had been charged for the purchase price of the entire Washington Post, which, he said, was “pure craziness.”

“No way in hell would I buy the Washington Post,” he said.“I don’t even read the Washington Post.”
Mr. Bezos said he had been on the phone with the Post’s customer service for the better part of the day trying to unwind his mistaken purchase, but so far “they’ve really been giving me the runaround.”

According to Mr. Bezos,“I keep telling them, I don’t know how it got in my cart. I don’t want it. It’s like they’re making it impossible to return it.”

I would like to think the Republican Party is morphing for the better to include different ideas and diversities but all with the same desire to collectively do what's in the best interest of the country.
Unlike the Democrat Party who has "evolved" into something almost unrecognizable - the godless, communists, socialists and radical progressive secularists - who collectively want to do what's in the best interest of a one-party system to control the masses by destroying capitalism and creating a nanny state.
Which tent would you rather be under?
Nevermind. I already know.
You "would like to think" and of course they'd prove that a mistake. The recently passed House version of the Farm Bill not only increased subsidies like crop insurance and sugar price supports but the bill made them PERMANENT.

No honest person can look at the GOP platform and do anything but laugh:

"Reining in Out-of-Control Spending, Balancing the Budget, and Ensuring Sound Monetary Policy"

Last time you put them in charge they took us off a balanced budget and into deficit spending. Since taking over the House spending is up something like over $300 billion. Why do you still believe them?

Republicans are divided temporarily trying to find the best way to save your ass from Obamacare.
I think you should find out you've been a fool the hard way myself.
If the Republican tent is growing, it must be due to Republicans storing all their horseshit under it or what Republicans that are left are gaining weight. The only people left are Tea Party idiots, the whacko religious right & the racists. All moderates have been called RINOs & kicked out. My God, most right whiners posting here can't even admit they are Republicans.

Congress has closed for a five-week vacation, leaving the rest of us to figure out what happened in the several days of yelling about bills that no one was willing to pass, and to ask whether there is anything left of the Republican Party. The best approach might be to put together a diagram of who hates whom in the G.O.P., except that the drawing would get too messy; you’d need an Etch A Sketch and, like Mitt Romney, after a while you’d just want to shake it.

To start simply: John McCain hates Rand Paul, so much that he suggested, to The New Republic’s Isaac Chotiner, that he might prefer Hillary Clinton for President. Chris Christie hates Rand Paul, so much so that he said he was not interested in having a beer with him. Rand Paul seems to hate Chris Christie, since he called him the King of Bacon and mocked him to an audience in Tennessee by saying,“Gimme, gimme, gimme—give me all my Sandy money now.” But then Christie had compared Paul to Charles Lindbergh—for his isolationism, not the aviation. What was strange about the Paul-Christie spat was that Charles Krauthammer and other observers spoke of it solemnly, as though it was the intellectual engagement on the future of foreign policy that the G.O.P. had been longing for. Really what we were talking about was Christie saying that
libertarians like Paul ought to come to Jersey and sit across from a 9/11 widow before saying that the N.S.A. shouldn’t collect all the information it wants to.

The Republican Party has not embarked on a grand civil war, with battle lines drawn and generals appointed. It’s more like one of those fights in a cartoon, with characters jumping into a swirl of limbs and dust and cowboy hats. It is a rolling ball of cheerful hate, careening downhill, uprooting trees and legislative priorities, heedless of where it, or the country, is going.

When the hunt started getting desperate and they were pointing to a van with chemicals in it did I start feeling betrayed.
When they started claiming the weapons were spirited off to other foreign countries but the administration again had no proof did I realize they were creating a second lie to try and cover the first.
I was against invading Iraq from the start. This solidified my speculation the republicans have imperialist dreams. Reminded me of Vietnam when Nixon crossed the line and started to invade Laos and Cambodia. Ironically both republican administrations had blank checks for their wars with no exit strategy. Now I speculate the other two infamous republican fiascos. 1st being the 1929 Great Depression and the 2nd , 2008 Great Recession. Little bit of research and the same principles for these destructive economic results were due to rise in inequality and deregulation.
Putting all of this together I get imperialism ambitious ideologies manifesting with the republican party. Then discovering present republicans ambitions for inequality to our economics solidified that I’m correct as to their goals. The Tea was the glazing that made it obvious to the naked truth of what they represent.
UN’s Gini observation for a nation’s inequality in economics distributions supports my contentions. USA presently is at .47 up from our 1980 .4 status to inequality to the populace. Sweden is .3 Netherlands .31 for a couple of examples. Africa and Latino America .5 and above. Scale is defined as 1 being complete inequality and 0 being totally equal..47 and increasing puts us in the neighborhood of Turkey and Iran. Higher the inequality the higher the probability for the formation of oligarchies with their tyrants and dictators, emperors, etc. etc…
2014 coming up ladies and gentlemen your choice.. No vote will only allow this inequality to further increase. Vote for inequality will accelerate it. Vote for more equality and it may slow it down for the wealth of propaganda is with the oligarchies, at the present. Push for inequality has been going on for over a century. It will take some time to bring it to a standard of .3 .

After the cherry picked fluff you can read the aggregate data Patrick:

"At a time when the Republican Party’s image is at a historic low, 62% of the public says the GOP is out of touch with the American people, 56% think it is not open to change and 52% say the party is too extreme."
http://www.people-press.org/2013/02/26/gop-se...

A new Washington Post-ABC News poll finds that 52% of Republicans and Republican-leaning independents think the GOP leadership is talking the party in the wrong direction while just 37% think it's headed in the right direction.

"That disaffection is apparent in another measure: Just 21% of Americans in this survey identify themselves as Republicans, matching the fewest since November 2009. GOP allegiance has dropped from an annual average of 31% in 2003 to annual averages of 23 or 24% the past five years straight."

Trying to force inspections by regulators is a far cry from invading the country.

The reasons to force inspections are much lower that the reasons to invade a country, spend over a trillion dollars& kill 4000 soldiers.

I might think my neighbor's dog is dangerous. The reasons for it are enough to stay away from it, It doesn't mean they are enough to shoot it.

The Congressmen & Senators were trying to force inspections. Their talk about Sadam was aimed for the UN & inspectors.

Bush's talk was aimed at the American people with the sole objective of war.

I have been observing what I refer to the “Growing Chasm” within the republican ranks. Here is one example of many that I have been collecting.
Republican Governors oppose the “Ideologues” of their party. Giving them stern warning not to pursue a shutdown of the government as it has been their custom to do so. Trying to block Obamacare by disrupting the financing of the Federal budget will backfire on them.
“I have made the case that Obamacare is not good for the economy, but I have some real concerns about potentially doing something that would have a negative impact on the economy just for the short term — I think there are other ways to pursue this,” said Gov. Scott Walker of Wisconsin !
Gov. Jack Dalrymple of North Dakota said “I’ve never felt that shutting down government function is a wise thing to do politically because I think, whoever is involved in it, it’s the Congress, regardless of what party they’re affiliated with, that will be blamed by the public,” And so, to me, I don’t see what it accomplishes.”
Gov. Jan Brewer of Arizona agrees as do most all the republican governors.
Gov. Phil Bryant of Mississippi said “Many of the members of this party do not want to fund Obamacare, but what we have to do as governors who work with our legislators is realize the reality of being able to get something passed,”!
Senators Rand Paul {R }of Kentucky and Ted Cruz {R} of Texas two of the Tea Party disagree. Senator Tom Coburn {R} of Oklahoma believes the stop government ideology is doomed and will doom republicans come 2014.
Gov. Terry E. Branstad of Iowa, a Republican defines the art of negotiations and compromise is required and end all this callow bitter fighting of our extremist representatives.
New chairwoman of the National Governors Association, Ms. Fallen said “They need to buckle down, work hard, find consensus on things and certainly find ways of reducing our deficit,” said Ms. Fallin, who rejected the Medicaid expansion in Oklahoma and declined to set up a state health insurance marketplace.
Bobby Jindal of Louisiana, the head of the Republican Governors Association said “We absolutely should use whatever opportunity and tactic we can to repeal and replace Obamacare,” said Mr. Jindal, deeming the prospect of a shutdown nothing more than “a false threat” and “scare tactics” from Mr. Obama’s administration.
LOL if that is not an excellent example of how the right wing PROJECTS their erroneous ideologues’ onto their opponent. Scare tactics! False threats! Its Obama’s fault! Callow does not do justice in describing Bobby’s abilities for originality and leadership.
Gov. Jack Markell of Delaware {D} said “People are getting very tired of politicians who appear to only want to shut things down and not build things up, Far be it from me to give them advice, but it can’t be helpful to them.”
Republicans just wanted to let their constants know that they no longer favor the fragrance and or taste of Tea as it is being served by their bitter ideologues’. Will the Tea Party sober up enough to comprehend the warning of the growing chasm that will be swallowing them up?
Republicans are just now realizing that there constituents are deeply in favor of Obamacare and now they seek how to back pedal without anybody noticing. LOL!

Wow, when you get stupid about a thing ...

The GOP held the majority in the Senate. That means they didn't need ANY D votes to pass their own legislation. They couldn't get enough R votes because 17 R Senators had been bribed into opposing the bill. The Senate Majority Leader Frist-R wouldn't even bring the bill up for a vote despite the pleadings of the bill's R supporters.
