But you go ahead and wave your little sign.
Lois still playing with the judge. Fears replies. That what you get from drinking the Tea. LOL Your comment is False. Here is one example of how intelligence is seeping into the republicans ranks in spite of the kooks ideologies.
Obama’s empathy for our nation has been demonstrated numerous times. That’s why republicans have labeled him as Obamacare. Now he is going to gather up the Tea and cast it out unto the waters of oblivion with the traditionalist republicans help.
Fortunately there is hope and it is being demonstrated, more and more every day, with the moderate republicans and the intellectuals of the party that are distancing themselves from the dysfunctional “Ideologues” of their party. Obama has aided them with his brilliance. A Tea bulwark has fallen.
Obamacare drives a wedge, fracturing republican party. Phoenix Arizona’s Governor Jan Brewer pulled off a major coup by distancing herself, along with a few staunch republican state senators, from their extremist elements within their party. Rallying the support by emphasizing “Moral and Monetarily Correct”. Stating “It’s pro-life, it’s saving lives, it is creating jobs, it is saving hospitals,” and “I don’t know how you can get any more conservative than that,”
Typical of the intoxicated Tea Party’s strategy. Derogatory remarks are let loose with no substance to any issue for debate. Going so far as to invoke some religious sniping by A.J LaFaro chairman of the Maricopa County Republican Committee, comparing Jan Brewer to Judas! Libertarian blog post by Tyler S. Boyer on the “Freedom Works” site, refers to Jan as “An unfortunate display of ineptitude.” Derogatory continues to surface from the right wing extremist. Reagan once said” Republicans should not speak ill of one another” Something the extremist have ignored, as they have demonstrated on various issues, ignoring supporting their constituents for some personal ego political ploy. Ignoring the facts that voters agreed, in 1996 and in 2000, to extend Medicaid coverage to childless adults, one of the main beneficiaries of the Medicaid expansion.
Mr. Coughlin states “Ideologues have their agendas” Mr. Coughlin goes on to say “and the part of the party that’s taking issue with the governor right now is all made up of ideologues”!
Moderate republicans will be required to expand their platforms to educate their constituents of the fallacies of the zealot extremist policies. Focusing on the more intelligent groups within their spheres such as women and independents.
Bruce Merrill, political behaviorist senior research at Morrison Institute for Public Policy of the Arizona University states “how truly fractured the Republican Party in Arizona is.” expressly due to Obamacare.
“The real brilliance of Barack Obama when he made Medicaid an all-or-nothing proposition,” giving states no option but to cover individuals with incomes up to 133 percent of the federal poverty line if they were to qualify for federal reimbursement,“was that he pitted fiscally conservative Republicans against one another,” he said.
Governor Jan Brewer views it as merely bruised egos that will heal with time.“Nobody likes to lose, and that’s what happened”. AND this is but one example of many.

No, he actually he was referring to the Republicans' Contract with America that actually work and him getting most of the credit.

Clinton was very smart to move to the center. It's what saved his presidency in lieu of all the scandals.

This president is as stubborn as a jackass. Republicans are treated like virtual outcasts so they have no choice but to bide their time until the nation realizes they screwed up royally.

Obamacare should do it if it ever gets off the ground or destroys the economy and too many businesses before it does.

It was OK for Bush to kill 4000 soldiers because he thought the guy in Iraq had WMDs.
If Obama went by Bush's "red line", we'd have invaded Syria already.
You people are pathetic.
Now you say we should be afraid of our enemies & cower in fear instead to working to prevent the slaughter on innocents.
Funny how you fricken chickensh*ts went from puffy chested war mongers under Bush to cowering whining little sh*ts under Obama.
If Syria used chemical weapons, then missile strikes are justified.

America should not be the worlds policeman. You talk of the slaughter of innocents. If missiles are used in Syria there will be collateral damage. Civilians will be killed, lots of them.

President Bill Clinton (State of the Union Address): "The era of big government is over."
He came to that conclusion after signing most of the terms in his Republican Congress's Contract with America including the Welfare Reform Act which was a huge success.
It limited government and demanded accountability.
Had it not been for 9/11 and two ensuing wars, it probably wouldn't have died by the wayside.
But the Democrats used that crisis to do what they do best - lie...cheat...steal...whatever - to gain power and control, ignore the impending housing crisis, and grow government to the point that even Bill Clinton's head must be privately spinning.
Not exactly breaking news but used to prove what point?

We should cut back on scholarships for students?

We have serious foreign policy issues and a few carping from the sidelines wishing war.

Presently there is a growing rift that has grown into a chasm within the republicans. Looks like the old guard republican are now emulating our forefathers of 1773 and are gathering up the Tea and casting it out unto the waters of oblivion.
Republicans seeking a rebirth to their Progressive Grand Old Party? First they must perform an abortion. Casting out the Teabaggers out to the waters of political oblivion. Democrats will lend a hand in cleaning up another republican dysfunctional mess. Then we will roll out the barrel and celebrate. Returning to arguments, debates, compromise, and moving on to A bipartisan celebration!
Feuding within the republican clan’s is heating up. Thursday {May 23 2013], across the bow shouts could be heard, between the forces of the traditionalist republicans and the Tea Party.
John McCain {R} accuses the Tea Party of overplaying their hand and tempting the democrats to change the minority rule in favor of up and down votes. Eliminating the 60% needed to pass a bill. All that would be required is simple majority.{51%”} Similar to the six times the republicans evoked during the Bush administration.
Established conservatives of voted 76 opposing to the 40 remaining Tea Party newcomers, lead by John McCain, disagreeing to consuming any more Tea. Moves on seeking to establishing a budget; as the Tea Party opposes any budget conferences on the issue.
Eric Cantor {R} leads the gang of four; Ted Cruz of Texas, Rand Paul {R} of Kentucky, Mike Lee {R} of Utah and Marco Rubio {R} of Florida. They won their seats in opposition to the traditionalist republicans. They are Infamous for their roles in the Hostage/Ransom scenarios and “Our way or the Highway” scenarios for governing our USA. Ahh the foul fragrances of dictatorship vaporizing from the Tea Potters…

Zimmerman is rather old news.

Syria is an issue and the UK Parliament seems to have questioned the wisdom of an attack.

She suggests that it is our fault that felons are criminals. We as a society do not force people to commit crimes,they do it of their our desire. Recognition of true facts about a persons criminal history is not discrimination. Certainly,it would be great if every one could have a job,but that is never going to happen since the guy who is currently occupying The White House has an anti-employment agenda.

A growing rift within republican party is widening into a chasm! From the depths will their come rebirth or desolation?
Chasm widens. Will this give birth to the Progressive Grand Old Party?
Senator Ted Cruz {R Tea Party} from Texas has launched his desires for the 2016 presidenticy as has Marco Rubio {R Tea Party} of Florida.
Cruz has revealed as he says “ A dirty little secret, republicans {traditionalist} would like very much to cast a symbolic vote against raising the debt ceiling and nonetheless to allow our democrat friends on the left side of the aisle to raise the debt ceiling.”
Mike Lee {R Tea Party} and Ted Cruz prefer the hostage/ransom method to block any progress of the Congress. John McCain {R Traditional} disagrees as this will inflame the scenario of an up and down vote by the democrats. Who will then expand that to all Key issues.
Democrats begin to set the stage. Complaining of how the republicans are blocking or delaying confirmation of top White House nominees. Including Federal Judges. Accusing a small group are abusing their powers to block actions for our Congress to proceed with the governing of our Nation.
The Chasm Widens…

They still have the same solutions. The Democrats didn't want any part of them then and don't want to hear them now.
Unfortunately for them, they own Obamacare now.
let's see those solutions. i can't tear them down if you don't build them up.

Fine, change the law then. But if the law states a crime is punishable by 20 years and they serve 20 years, their rights should be restored.
