ever since Mitch Daniels got caught lying about job creation in Indiana, most sane Hoosiers(re: not republicans) don't pay much attention to what the Republicans in Indy have to say.
Mitch Daniels is a Pseudo Liberal too or RINO and is in the left wing of the Republican Party just not the Democrat Party's left wing.

A RINO (Republican in Name Only) is an officeholder or candidate who is a member of the Republican Party, but holds views to the political left of most Republican voters. The term "RINO" describes politicians who claim to be Republican but are in fact liberal, and therefore generally debase the winning conservative coalition base of the Republican Party.

Liberals make a good point what could Obama’ do’ about Egypt ,what he’s done for the Last Five years ‘ Nothing?’ Maybe I’m being a little Harsh he did give a 6 minute speech concerning the crisis then return back to the Golf Course, I’m guessing but the President and the Liberal Media probably perceives this as another Phony Crisis conjured up by Republicans to make him look Bad….Right?

Muslim Brotherhood leader's son killed in Egypt clashes!! Ammar Badie, son of Mohammed Badie, was shot dead in Cairo!! I’m waiting for Obama to step up to the podium and tell the American People’ if he had a son he’ll look just like Ammar!’

The 35% was Obama's approval on the economy.
You said his "approval" and didn't provide a link. A lie by omission is still a lie.

This particular instance proves you do it intentionally.

That's not news to anyone here, just wanted to clarify that.

How does this make him look bad? I'm actually impressed he's resisting calls to intervene.

The Republican party is so dysfunctional it's leaders are terrified to lead. The best they can do is promise to obstruct the Democratic party. The only things they can be FOR are:
1. Make it harder for Americans to vote.
2. Restrict women's rights of choice.
3. Prevent 30 million Americans from being insured.
4. Prevent same-sex couples from marrying.
5. Make it easier for big oil to abuse the environment.
6. Impose Christian dogma on America.
7. Insure that the insane and criminals can purchase semi-automatic weapons.
Holder made it easy for the drug people to get the weapons. The republicans are trying to keep this a civilized country, you other kind are trying to tear our nation apart, we are just about there, we can't survive for 3 more years the way things are going now.We will be under the muslims rule, to bad more people can't see it coming.

Proof Of Politics: Indiana Fudges Truth On Health Exchange Rates To Make Obamacare Look Bad

Sometimes, the political urge simply overwhelms anything resembling common sense and appropriate behavior.

Witness the latest example of political skullduggery playing out in the great State of Indiana where GOP Governor Mike Pence has found it necessary to take extreme liberties with the reporting of the state’s healthcare exchange data—all to justify his anti-Obamacare political positioning.

Better hurry!
The real estate market is heavy with investors everywhere, many of whom are cash buyers (not F&F) with no place else to go with their money. They buy the house and either make a few cosmetic changes before reselling or rent out for a couple of years waiting for the market to go up.

The mountain of cash waiting on the sidelines for suitable investments is enormous.

A Florida lawmaker became the latest Republican to be loudly questioned by constituents over his opposition to the Affordable Care Act.
According to Think Progress, Rep. Daniel Webster (R-FL) was booed and heckled during a town hall event on Thursday, with one attendee saying,“Tell him to stop lying” at one point about the health care mandate, commonly referred to as “Obamacare.”

It ain't easy because no Republican in Congress is advocating letting Obamacare run its course. They'd never survive the next election cycle. If anyone has its Rand Paul and that's because he's not looking at getting re-elected to the Senate.
Obama himself is not allowing ObamaKKKare to run its course, because that would sink the DemoKKKrats in 2014.

Galt would vote for Rand Paul on the Libertarian ticket over Christie on the Republican ticket. The Republicans would probably lose badly, maybe even finish third, but might learn a lesson.

American seniors saved close to 700 million dollars thanks to the Obamacare reforms of the Prescription Drug Plan Part D to make it fully-paid for and reducing waste, abuse, and overcharging by doctors ,and hospitals, of seniors medical billing.

You just want a big daddy President like all the other right-whiners.
(its actually simpler than that: you just can't tolerate the colored Democrat in the WH)
Obama's mistake was to promise people in those countries more than he could deliver.

In Egypt, his biggest mistake was demanding that Mubarak leave office, without any suitable replacement.

Galt understands that you disapprove of our military intervention in Libya. Correct?

In summary, we would be better off if Obama had done nothing.

But the best is yet to come in Syria.

Unless you give him a free pass for incompetence just because he is black?
