Bob Woodward Says Republicans Are Using Extortion and Blackmail to Defund Obamacare
If even a blind squirrel finds a nut, then I guess this is visually impaired squirrel, meet nut. When even noted Sean Hannity fan boy Bob Woodward can see that Republicans are using blackmail and extortion in their attempt to defund Obamacare, things are really going badly for the GOP.
The same Bob Woodward who was a fixture on Fox News when he had an anti-Obama book to sell has changed his tune a bit now that he is not trying to convince the brainwashed, Republican voting, white haired masses to plop down a bit of their Social Security checks on his latest book.
The shocking thing is that Woodward is right. Republicans are using blackmail and extortion in their attempt to defund Obamacare. Republicans can try to dodge this description, but when a group of Republicans are running around threatening to wreck the economy if Obamacare isn’t defunded, it is virtually impossible for the GOP to claim that they aren’t trying to blackmail the president into taking away healthcare for 30 million Americans. If the death panel lie fits, wear it.

You're a real trip. Perhaps it may have occurred to Jack Ryan that bringing his wife to sex clubs and forcing her to participate in orgies with strangers; may have been discovered by the press one day! It was his wife who put the screws to him, not President Obama; and all is fair game in politics, tough luck.

right wing race relations.....

The crowning of Miss New York, Nina Davuluri, as Miss America should have been, to paraphrase her platform, a celebration of diversity through cultural competency. But in the hours after her victory, Twitter became a frank demonstration of American incompetence in matters relating to both ethnicity and geography.

“Well they just picked a Muslim for Miss America. That must’ve made Obama happy. Maybe he had a vote,” said one user.

“I am literally soo mad right now a ARAB won.#MissAmerica” wrote another.

It should go without saying that Davuluri, a Syracuse native of Indian descent, is neither Muslim nor an Arab. But according to Fox News Radio host Todd Starnes, the American-born Davuluri doesn’t “represent American values,” unlike the blonde-haired, blue-eyed contestant from Kansas, Theresa Vail.

very classy way to keep the FOX fan base riled up.

you'd think picking on Obama would be enough.

It's not going away as quietly as Obama and his minions had hoped.
"In the next two weeks, the House Foreign Affairs, Armed Services, Government Oversight and Reform, and Intelligence Committees will all hold hearings looking into different aspects of the Benghazi attacks – beginning with an Intelligence Committee hearing later this week on the lack of progress in the investigation and apprehension of the perpetrators of those attacks. 60 Minutes is planning to air its investigation into the Benghazi attacks later this fall."

At least Hollywood is still behind the president -- or, anyway, is mostly keeping quiet about its opposition because, as old-line Hollywood liberal Ed Asner reports, they "don't want to feel anti-black."
So it's come to this -- while George W. Bush was savaged for "bombing brown people," now if you're against bombing brown people you're "anti-black."
As I said, if I were George W. Bush or Romney, I'd be sorely tempted to laugh, because OBAMA'S CHICKENS ARE COMING HOME TO ROOST.
Obama was elected after he and his party sowed distrust of U.S. military endeavors, mocked "intelligence estimates" about "weapons of mass destruction," and suggested that anything the United States did in the region was probably somehow a scheme to benefit oil companies.
Now Obama and his administration are shocked to find that when they go on about intelligence estimates and weapons of mass destruction, people don't take them seriously.
Likewise, Obama has repeatedly shown his disdain for Congress and his willingness to act without congressional approval in all sorts of areas, from ObamaCare implementation to gun control.
So it's not surprising that members of Congress seem to be a bit ... distant now that Obama suddenly wants them to bail him out of his unfortunate "red line" remark.
But I'd bet that Bush and Romney aren't actually laughing. That's because they're both serious men who understand international politics and who care for the future of the country. They no doubt understand that, as fun as it is to watch a political opponent twist in the wind due to his own ineptitude, the price will ultimately be paid not by Obama, but by the people of America.
Our diplomacy is a joke, OUR PRESIDENT IS A LAUGHING STOCK, our enemies are emboldened (50 Shades of Jimmy Carter), and we've still got over three years of this to go. Nothing funny there at all, alas.
.
Talk about wanting to laugh out loud. When Obama addressed the nation as "my fellow Americans" and pontificated about "being united" in his lone wolf and lame attempt to show Assad who was boss, there had to be a collective eye roll across the nation.

He divided us by distinguishing us as either "friends" or "enemies" early on and purposefully created invisible wars between the classes, gender and races just to get elected and demonized Republicans and, therefore, their constituents for the past five years and expects us - his "fellow Americans" - to suddenly rally behind him when he finds himself in a corner?

Like I said, major eye roll.

Here's an example of other "ugly Americans" like you:

But according to Fox News Radio host Todd Starnes, the American-born Davuluri doesn’t “represent American values,” unlike the blonde-haired, blue-eyed contestant from Kansas, Theresa Vail.

This is not to say that Vail isn’t an unprecedented contestant in her own right: she’s spent five years in the Kansas Army National Guard and is double-majoring in chemistry and Chinese at Kansas State University. But, according to Starnes on Facebook, she lost because “the liberal Miss America judges were not interested in a gun-toting, deer-hunting, military veteran.”

Terrorist shooter on the loose at Washington Navy Shipyard.

Obama does not have all the facts but promises to label it "workplace violence". So he can claim there was no terrorist attack under his watch only under Bush, Liberals to blindly fall for it!

Liberals promise to defend terrorist right to exercise his religion to kill.
