Since Barack Obama became president, the extremists who have taken over the Republican Party have escalated their demands every time he’s caved, using the entire government of the United States as their bargaining chit.
In 2010 he agreed to extend all of the Bush tax cuts through the end of 2012. Were they satisfied? Of course not.
In the summer of 2011, goaded by an influx of Tea Partiers, they demanded huge spending cuts in return for raising the debt ceiling. In response, the President offered an overly-generous $4 trillion “Grand Bargain,” including cuts in Social Security and Medicare and whopping cuts in domestic spending (bringing it to its lowest level as a share of gross domestic product in over half a century).
Were Republicans content? No. When they demanded more, Obama agreed to a Super Committee to find bigger cuts, and if the Super Committee failed, a “sequester” that would automatically and indiscriminately slice everything in the federal budget except Social Security and Medicare.
Not even Obama’s re-election put a damper on their increasing demands. By the end of 2012, they insisted that the Bush tax cuts be permanently extended or the nation would go over the “fiscal cliff.” Once again, Obama caved, agreeing to permanently extend the Bush tax cuts for incomes up to $400,000.
Early this year, after the sequester went into effect, Republicans demanded even bigger spending cuts. Obama offered more cuts in Medicare and a “chained CPI” to reduce Social Security payments, in exchange for Republican concessions on taxes.
Refusing the offer, and seemingly delirious with their power to hold the nation hostage, they demanded that the Affordable Care Act be repealed as a condition for funding the government and again raising the debt ceiling.
This time, though, Obama didn’t cave — at least, not yet.

20 Years On the CBS Evening News:
Dan Rather's Outrageous Liberal Bias
Dan Rather replaced Walter Cronkite as anchor of the then-top rated CBS Evening News on March 9, 1981. Since then, his on-air liberal bias has become the stuff of legend.

I read that Walter Cronkite did not like his replacement and privately said so to CBS management.

WASHINGTON (NBC).......[not FOX:)]
A brand new NBC-Wall Street Journal poll brings bad news for President Obama.
His job approval is on a massive slide, and now his personal likability is taking a hit, too.
President Obama's approval rating was near an all-time high in January.

A federal appeals court issued a ruling Thursday reinstating most of Texas' controversial new abortions restrictions, just three days after a federal judge ruled they were unconstitutional.

A panel of judges at the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans said the law requiring doctors to have admitting privileges at a nearby hospital can take effect while a lawsuit challenging the restrictions moves forward. The panel issued the ruling after District Judge Lee Yeakel said the provision serves no medical purpose.

The panel's decision means as least 12 clinics won't be able to perform the procedure starting as soon as Friday. In its 20-page ruling, it acknowledged that the provision "may increase the cost of accessing an abortion provider and decrease the number of physicians available to perform abortions."

However, the panel said that the U.S. Supreme Court has held that having "the incidental effect of making it more difficult or more expensive to procure an abortion cannot be enough to invalidate" a law that serves a valid purpose, "one not designed to strike at the right itself."

Smarter than I thought. The President is not a liar. Apparently Billo isn't as radically nuts as you would like him to be. You're probably one of those nuts that he has red flagged in the email segment of his show. You're more like a dittohead.
This president lied through his teeth. But the ends always justifies the means when it comes to controlling people.

Too many judges are wannabe legislators. Something similar just happened with that judge in NY regarding the Stop-And-Frisk law.

She was removed from the case for misconduct after it was found that she had been steering the case in her direction behind the scenes. She apparently was chomping at the bit to make laws instead of ruling on them.

The abuse of power is, IMHO, is the hallmark of this new century from the chimp in the Oval office, to judges on the lowest and highest courts, to so-called "journalists" and to all media in general.

Our minds are under attack from all sides.

Hasn't the Marxist-In-Chief been changing his signature piece ofcrap on the fly all along?

Many have complained that the law has been changed to a considerable extent from its original writing by the azzhole and that it is actually the responsibility of the Legislative Branch of our government and not the Executive to do so.

But Little Caesar insists on getting his face on Rome's coinage, the Roman Senate be damned....
