The good thing is that GOP governors are starting to realize the stupidity of their decision not to expand Medicaid given the Federal government's offer to pay a minimum of 90% of the cost as opposed to the traditional 90%. With the exception of Texas, I expect more and more Republican governors to realize the stupidity of their decision.
"Obamacare hits a tipping point: Most governors now want to expand Medicaid"

geez how long did you have to search for that article from September? in case you can't keep up with your small brain, it is October--and Republican governors are thankful they didn't expand medicaid. Put up an article before the debacle of the O'bamacare rolled out and look stupid. It is liberalism at its finest. Way to go.

"A year after Romney loss, GOP woes run even deeper
Associated Press
By CHARLES BABINGTON 43 minutes ago

WASHINGTON (AP)— A year after losing a presidential race many Republicans thought was winnable, the party arguably is in worse shape than before. The GOP is struggling to control tensions between its tea party and establishment wings and watching approval ratings sink to record lows.

It's almost quaint to recall that soon after Mitt Romney lost to President Barack Obama, the Republican National Committee recommended only one policy change: endorsing an immigration overhaul, in hopes of attracting Hispanic voters.

That immigration bill is now struggling for life and attention in the Republican-run House. The bigger worry for many party leaders is the growing rift between business-oriented Republicans and the GOP's more ideological wing. Each accuses the other of bungling the debt ceiling and government shutdown dramas, widely seen as a major Republican embarrassment.

The problems don't end there.

Polls show the GOP nominee trailing in a Virginia governor's race that history says a Republican should win. At the national level, it's hard to recall when Republicans seemed so leaderless. Romney has returned to private life. Potential rising stars have stumbled, as Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida did when he angered conservative activists by pushing the immigration measure through the Senate.

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell is preoccupied with his Kentucky re-election bid, squeezed between a tea party GOP challenger on the right and a well-regarded Democrat on the left. In the House, Speaker John Boehner of Ohio cemented his support among Republican colleagues only by letting them vote heavily against a bipartisan plan to avert an unprecedented default on U.S. obligations.

The legislation, which also reopened the government, passed mostly with Democratic votes. That's hardly the type of victory a Republican speaker hangs on his wall.

Eyeing this troubling landscape, many Republican campaign veterans hope conservative die-hards will narrow their differences with the party's more pragmatic members before next year's elections and the 2016 presidential campaign.

"If we don't find common ground and stand on the same side of the line, we're going to have a very ugly and rough couple of years," said Sara Taylor Fagen, who directed political affairs in President George W. Bush's White House...."

All I could do when I saw his posts this morning was laugh. The more improbable and contradictory a conspiracy theory is...the more he feels compelled to embrace it. So deeply entrenched in conspiracy theories he can't think straight.
There is no sense in trying to reason with him. All one can do is laugh and shake one's head at the absurdity of his assertions. And, be thankful that most people like him are locked up in mental institutions.
Haven't you heard? No one is locked up in mental institutions anymore. Liberals won't allow it. The one clear thread that unites all the mass murders or women who drive cars into the White House fence in DC (with a toddler in the backseat) and get shot by police, is that they were committed by visibly crazy people who were unaccountably not institutionalized. Libs and Dems are adamant about removing guns from law abiding citizens while keeping as many dangerous crazies "free" and roaming the streets.

And my favorite conspiracy theory of all time was when Hillary was blaming the right for the Monica Lewinsky Conspiracy Theory.

Only guessing, but Biden's presence may be a painful reminder of his most embarrassing gaffe when he promised us quite emphatically, "Obama has a big stick!"
Or the painful reminder of being overheard about the passage of Obamacare and it being a "big f--ing deal."
Either/or. Both are now quite embarrassing.
I love both those lines. Joe is awesome.

Supreme Court Ethics, once upon a Kagan, and we wonder how the SCOTUS approved the ACA...

"If, for example, you are Laurence Tribe in 1984, Harvard professor of law, leftist pillar of the establishment, you can “write” your magnum opus by using the products of your student assistant, Ron Klain. A decade later, after Klain admits to having written some parts of the book, and the other parts are found to be verbatim or paraphrases of a book published in 1974, you can claim (perhaps correctly) that your plagiarism was “inadvertent,” and you can count on the Law School’s dean, Elena Kagan, to appoint a committee including former and future Harvard president Derek Bok that issues a secret report that “closes” the incident. Incidentally, Kagan ends up a justice of the Supreme Court. Not one of these people did their jobs: the professor did not write the book himself, the assistant plagiarized instead of researching, the dean and the committee did not hold the professor accountable, and all ended up rewarded."

We listen to Obama say "You didn't build that..." and "I mean, I do think at a certain point you've made enough money" and John Dingell say "...it takes a long time to do the necessary administrative steps that have to be taken to put the legislation together to control the people."

We're tired of the "you can keep your doctor" and "not one thin dime" lies to our faces.
