Barack Obama, our next President

Question for gun folks:
1. Do you support the NRA's policy of creating and keeping a data base of gun owners that they secretly assembled without the knowledge of the people on the list?
2. Does this constitute a conspiracy or scandal?
3. Would this be considered a conspiracy or scandal if Obama ordered it?
1. No
2. Yes, both
3. Absolutely. Rightwingers would be going apeshit right now.

Nope, we'll make sure for those who aren't already on Medicaid as many are, they'll be well subsidized with taxpayer money to pay for ObamaCare.
seems to me it speaks more to the state of conservative families.

but when you live in a FOX fantasy world and your kids have been living it vicariously, they're just not capable of dealing with the real world. so.....i'm paying taxes so grown kids can sit at home and play video games where the main theme reinforces their 2nd amendment rights.

The worm turns!!! Republicans deserting the party likes rats abandoning a sinking ship!!
AND, when Republicans aren't deserting the party, the party deserts them as they did with Mark Sanford when the National Republican Congressional Committee chose not to back him over his Democratic opponent in the South Carolina special election. The fact that he won despite losing the GOP's support must be sweet revenge for Sanford and another example of a backwards GOP in trouble.

Health Care Reform Fistfight Results in Not Guilty Verdict

Jurors heard conflicting testimony in the two-day trial over who actually started the fight, and they viewed video tape showing the end and aftermath of the brawl — but no video showed who threw the first punch.

“Finally after two years of lies and distortion the jury got to hear the truth,” Molens said.“They got to see the evidence that wasn’t on Ann Coulter or some right wing blogs, and within 40 minutes they acquitted us.”

Republican Problems

Unless it doesn’t. Behind the scenes — in whispered asides, not for public consumption — some Republicans are now worried that keeping the House is not such a done deal after all. They look back to two elections, 1998 and 2006, in which Republicans seriously underperformed expectations, and they wonder if 2014 might be a little like those two unhappy years.

“The majority is at risk,” says one well-connected Republican strategist.“It should be a good year, but you need to run like you’re trying to win, and you need a good, solid strategy.”

In 1998, Republicans, with a narrow majority in the House, expected to pick up at least 20 seats. It was a weird year, with the Lewinsky scandal consuming Bill Clinton’s presidency. But Clinton wasn’t on the ballot — a fact that didn’t stop House Republicans from campaigning against him.“We were going to make the race all about Bill Clinton,” the strategist recalls.

It didn’t work. Instead of picking up 20 seats, the GOP lost five.(So much for the president’s party never picking up seats in the second term.) Republicans kept control of the House, but by a margin so small it made governing difficult.

In 2006, another president was in his second term, this time Republican George W. Bush. The GOP controlled the House and saw itself heading toward another victory.“The whole focus was on attacking Democrats,” recalls the strategist.“There was the belief that the districts were structurally Republican, Bush had carried a number of them, and we had a financial advantage.”

But instead of cruising to a win, the GOP lost 30 seats and ushered in the era of Speaker Nancy Pelosi.

In both years,’98 and ’06, Republicans concentrated more on going after Democrats than on laying out a solid plan for governance. They were the opposition party more than the alternative party. And they suffered for it.

What is the GOP plan for 2014? It’s not clear. But there are indications some Republicans believe that, with a weakening president, a strategy based mostly on opposing Democrats will be enough to keep control of the House. But voters are sending some warning signals.

They’re still not happy with the economy. How could they be, with unemployment at 7.4 percent? Whatever Barack Obama does, whatever Republicans do, unless something huge happens, the public’s top issue will remain the economy for quite a while.

Good stuff.

Happy 'Be an Angel' day today.

Be An Angel Day is all about making the world a better place through acts of kindness, care and support. Put others before yourself and reach out to help those in need.

If you’re the one benefiting from someone else’s act of kindness, make sure you let them know you appreciate it.

You know, Anti-Republican type stuff.
