Barack Obama, our next President

In Denmark everyone is equally miserably!

I wonder why they did not invented the iPhone first? With free education I would expect more inventions!!

See? Liberals confuse education with Capitalism! They think education and free stuff can create what Capitalism successfully do!

Under a Capitalist system ANYONE can be rich if only they work hard or if they become a Liberal and steal money from taxpayers by lying.

In a Socialist country the Liberals are the only ones rich by stealing from the idiot pawns!!! The idiot pawns can NEVER be rich even if they work hard and are smart!

GOP developing a Tea Party allergy

The Republican establishment is trying to put the angry genie -- the Tea Party -- back in the bottle by attempting to raise enough money to beat back Tea Party challenges to mainstream GOP incumbents.

After raising over a million dollars off a government shutdown that cost the U.S. economy $24 billion, tea party Senator Rafael Ted Cruz heads to the all important presidential caucus state of Iowa today to woo would be 2016 voters. Cruz's victory lap has many wondering how did we get here. Back in 2004 corporate lobbyist and former republican house majority leader Dick Armey found a right ring group called Freedom works , they sought to replicate grassroots successes of groups like Movon and bring as many right wing republicans to congress as possible. That same year oil billionaires Koch founded a similar group, Americans For Prosperity with the goal of rolling back regulations on things like energy companies as well as tax rates on the wealthiest Americans while cutting benefits for the nation's poor. In November 2010 , establishments Astroturf investments had dividends. Record spending, stoked fear of health care reform To whip conservative voters into an anti-Obama political frenzy,(remember the death panels?) republicans took control of the House of Representatives. Now nearly 10 years after this odyssey began and with the government shutdown tanking support for the tea party, the republican establishment is trying to put the angry genie it created back in the bottle. They have launched new Republican Main Street Partnership which seeks to raise $8 million to beat back tea party challenges to mainstream republican incumbents. Said La Turret, "hopefully we'll go into eight to ten races and beat the snot out of them." Karl Rove, evil genius in the 2004 presidential elections only to be cast aside after failing spectacularly in the 2012 election has launched Conservative Victory Project. The goal, to avoid nominating tea party candidates deemed unelectable by Rove. The very republicans who created the tea party monster are trying their darnedest to defeat it. It seems ironic you had Dick Armey's group loved the tea party and glommed onto it, now most afraid of it.

Conservatives shake their heads and say liberals are rejecting facts, drinking Kool-Aid and so forth because we don’t fall over ourselves agreeing with them. But how can we when what they’re talking about exists only in their own imaginations. It would be like George R.R. Martin suddenly becoming angry with his readers and viewers for refusing to shape their choices according to what’s taking place in Westeros.
Martin would never do this. He knows perfectly well what world he lives in and that the world of his fantasy novels and miniseries has nothing to do with our shared reality. Republicans cannot because they will not make this distinction, and never the twain shall meet.
We were headed down this fantasy road already when Barack Obama took office. There is no denying the rot had already set in. But since 2008 they have dug themselves an even deeper hole. They have based their entire platform, every word spoken and every action taken, on delegitimizing our first black president. If they backed down now they would be admitting that they have wasted not only their time but ours, and billions of dollars ($24 billion on the shutdown alone) on an ideology that is based on the rejection of something that does not exist in the real world: a Kenyan Muslim terrorist-sympathizing president.
If Republicans had to acknowledge the real world, they would see their arguments and objections evaporate. They would discover that the things they are saying are, in fact, untrue. Suddenly Kenyan birth would be as valid as Canadian, Muslim as valid as Christian. Their endless parade of manufactured scandals would crumble like the lies they are. They would discover that facts do matter.
Why do they reject reality? Why do they not embrace our shared reality? Simply put, there is nothing in it for them.

Republicans aren't perfect and politics can be messy.

But denying the incompetency by this president and his administration doesn't make it any less incompetent or Republicans any less imperfect.

It's just a matter of who is looking out for us. Some Republicans looked the other way when warned about the impending housing market crisis just as much as most Democrats.

Republicans also had to learn the hard way they have to balance government regulations and oversight into the private sector to avoid greed taking advantage of consumers. As Reagan once said, "Capitalism is not the enemy. Capitalism unchecked is."

It was, in fact, Clinton's Republican Congress who made significant changes during his administration, and Clinton was smart enough to go along with them.

The total lack of accountability we're witnessing and the lack of transparency by this administration as well as a clear agenda to put party first comes down to perspective.

Denying your party's culpability in contributing to the economic crisis and their lack of leadership since the economic crisis by pointing fingers at Republicans - when Republicans have had virtually no power since 2008 - is the deepest and saddest form of denial.

Because every single Democrat is a brainless hypocrite. That is why they are Democrats!
Which makes it even more ironic. Democrats refused to accept health care reform similar to Obamacare under Nixon when most Republicans were on board.

It could have been implemented with a lot less confusion and less government intrusion back in 1974.

Democrats are quick to accuse Republicans of not placing health care reform as a priority when, in fact, Republicans under both Nixon and Bush, Sr., came up with the idea first.

Residents of Nordic nations sometimes express public pride in their model, but their private behavior presents a more complicated
picture. Sometimes this hidden discontent becomes visible. Four of the five Nordic nations now have right-leaning governments. The Swedes elected a conservative coalition government late last year and the Finns made a similar choice earlier this year.
If residents of Nordic nations want faster growth, more prosperity,
and improved competitiveness, they need to reduce the size of the public sector. Excessive government diminishes growth. And although the Nordic countries’ relatively free markets mitigate the damage caused by high taxes and high spending, the burden of
government is hindering economic performance. The Nordic Model is preferable to the Continental or Corporatist Model of nations
such as France and Germany which combines welfare state policies and interventionism. But the Nordic Model does not look very impressive when compared to the United States.
http://www.cato.org/sites/cato.org/files/pubs...
Americans make a big mistake looking to socialist democracies abroad as a model. The United States champions personal freedom and liberties. It is what distinguishes us from other countries who have succumbed to government dependency.
These "models" are going the opposite direction the left are trying so desperately to take us - the same road from which they are turning around.

Cato isn't moveon.org , I know, but did you click on the 20-page policy analysis comparing Nordic countries to the United States?

It was a fairly comprehensive report with various resources to back up the analysis and data.

So what's your beef with Cato? Not radical or progressive enough?
