Barack Obama, our next President

The Republican Party is becoming less and less like a traditional political party in a representative democracy and becoming more like an apocalyptic cult, or one of the intensely ideological authoritarian parties of 20th century Europe.

Norman Ornstein and Tom Mann, scholars at the American Enterprise Institute and the Brookings Institution respectively, put it all in a book, for those with intellectual interest in politics. Title of the book is Its Even Worse Than It Looks”:” How the American Constitutional System Collided With the New Politics of Extremism”. They went further with an essay written for the Washington Post, titled “Let’s just say it: The Republicans are the problem.”
How far have the republicans sunk into the quagmire, you may wonder. Survey political strategist, lobbyist, pollsters and think tanks. Here is one; Chairman of Barbour Griffith & Rogers; Ed Rogers. Formerly the top aid to G.W. Bush and Reagan puts in simple terms.“The G.O.P. House has between 20 and 30 members who are ideological purists who think every issue and vote is black or white. Combine that with the members who fear a primary from the right, and you have maybe 60 votes that are hard to get. We have lost the art of governing in Washington. In the Congress no one is able to make and execute long-term plans.”

Urban Blacks are leery about obtaining photo IDs. DMV conducts computer checks for criminal history and outstanding warrants on photo IDs. There's most of your 11-12%.
Bullsht, we've discussed here dozens of times, do you have amnesia.

In many states, mine included, all sorts of paperwork is required to obtain an official DMV photo ID, enough that plenty of older folks just say fk it. Some immigrants can't even obtain some of the paperwork and must hire attorneys. www.gathergoget.com

Chasm widens sucking in the right wing nuts and Teabaggers alike. Traditionalist conservatives are spitting out the poisonous Tea.
Democrats and republican moderates have joined forces. Sweeping aside the Tea Party and the right wing nuts. In all places, Arizona! A previous bestial of the Tea Party.
Between them both they actually came to a budget with bipartisan support. On June 13, 2013 Governor Jan Brewer {R} Led the way that will add over 300,000 of their uninsured citizens to the roles of the insured. Embracing the Obamacare Health Care Plan.
Governor Jan Brewer gathered up her allies and repulsed themselves from the intoxicated Teabaggers and their minions. Carrying it so far as not to answerer any of the Tea and right wing nuts questions and shooting down any of their proposals.
Obamacare exposed the rift that is growing into a chasm where the Tea and the right wing nuts are being pushed into.
Their Senate President Andy Biggs {R} who was a staunch opponent to the Obamacare was swept aside. All these right wing nuts and the Teabaggers, had to say , was similar to what we find on these threads. Right wing nuts and Teabaggers, Constant redundant dysfunctional rhetoric and derogatory remarks. No substance or valid argument. Sputtering and babbling.. Now we know where these urchins get their cue’s from. Rushing Foxes with their Pied Piper’s melodies of “A La Propaganda.”
The chasm widens..

Love how the left goes on attack but yet doesn't offer any suggestions. The democratically controlled senate hasn't submitted a balanced budget in 6 years! If bo was serious about helping people and the country he put pressure on reid and the other minions in the senate to DO THEIR JOB! The left doesn't want to solve problems because that would be the death of their party. Just spend, spend, spend.....

Let the young and healthy purchase INEXPENSIVE, affordable catastrophic plans then.

Otherwise it's just MORE to funnel into the brokeback lalaland of slackertic oblivion for them-as in BIG price ticket for very LITTLE or NOTHING.

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.
Tea will not be served…. Out of service…
Really bright one? Republicans labeled "him" Obamacare?

ROTFLMAO!!!!

Dumb Communist. You fascists are all upset now that the House stuck up for the majority of Americans while Obama & the Democrat Senate would not do it's job and practice what our process was founded on:

Compromise

The House compromised and lowered it's objective three times, only to have the Democrats obstruct the will of the people represented by the U.S. House.

The Democrats even rejected a separate, standalone bill to eliminate the tax on medical devices.

Zieg Heil you little NAZI fascist with a strong dose of Commie boy.

You are an idiot.

Let me give you a hint. If you go to WV and you need alcohol or tobacco take your photo ID inside with you if you are at a chain store otherwise you will have to go back out and get it.

Obamacare trade-off: Lower premium, higher deductible

WASHINGTON — You might be pleased with the low monthly premium for one of the new health insurance plans under Obama’s takeover, but the added expense of copayments and deductibles will burn a hole in your wallet.

What cost less, always cost more...

It's the culture...
