Barack Obama, our next President

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…

Time’s they are a changing Over a hundred republican donors have sent their voices to their senators to mull over during their August recesses. Demanding immigration reform and a constructive immigration bill is required. Yes even unto legalizing the 11 million illegal immigrants now in residence.
Carlos Gutierrez, founder for the republican’s super PAC ,voices the demand for all intelligent republican to take positive action on this immigration bill. Not surprisingly Karl Rove, Dan Quayle, Tom Stemberg,{Staples}, Frank VanderSloot {Melalecua inc} have FINALLY seen the light. We can give thanks to the immigrants in educating these individuals and many more of their colleagues. Rookies they may be in this new era of an intelligent political leadership role, that is now slowly coming to light, we may yet see this infant callow effort to a rational leadership, as a rebirth of the “Grand Old Party” being born. Cutting the umbilical cord to their insidious extremist ideologues. Infamous for there total collapse from rational leadership.
Intelligence dictates this “Strengthening of The Border Only” bill, that the naïve extremist embrace, as the all to do all for immigration, will be filed in the nearest trash respectable at hand. A new bill may come to FALL soon , when the republicans announce their epitome , of how illegal immigrants may find a path to legal status. Oh glorious days would that be. Will there be in time to have more intelligent rational leadership come to emerge and remove the stigma of the worst performing congress in our nations history. Do not know but stay tuned. We can only hope that not all republicans will succumb to the ever increasing chasm of their irrational dysfunctional leadership. Perhaps it was all that Tea that they drank? A Tea tainted with a fungi of ominous-onus’s.

Republican Campaign Committee Pushes Back Against Conservative Group

In a warning shot to outside conservative groups, the National Republican Senatorial Committee this week informed a prominent Republican advertising firm that it would not receive any contracts with the campaign committee because of its work with a group that targets incumbent Senate Republicans.

Even more striking, a senior official at the committee called individual Republican Senate campaigns and other party organizations this week and urged them not to hire the firm, Jamestown Associates, in an effort to punish them for working for the Senate Conservatives Fund, a group founded by Jim DeMint, then a South Carolina senator, that is trying to unseat Senator Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, the Republican leader, and some other incumbents up for re-election next year whom it finds insufficiently conservative.

“We’re not going to do business with people who profit off of attacking Republicans,” said Brad Dayspring, a spokesman for the committee.“Purity for profit is a disease that threatens the Republican Party.”

Remember when. Intoxicated Teabaggers ignored their Governors and now all republicans are demonized. After all who wants a leadership that has a “Tail That Wags Their Dogs?”
Republican Governors oppose the “Ideologues” of their party. Giving them stern warning not to pursue a shutdown of the government as it has been their custom to do so. Trying to block Obamacare by disrupting the financing of the Federal budget will backfire on them.
“I have made the case that Obamacare is not good for the economy, but I have some real concerns about potentially doing something that would have a negative impact on the economy just for the short term — I think there are other ways to pursue this,” said Gov. Scott Walker of Wisconsin !
Gov. Jack Dalrymple of North Dakota said “I’ve never felt that shutting down government function is a wise thing to do politically because I think, whoever is involved in it, it’s the Congress, regardless of what party they’re affiliated with, that will be blamed by the public,” And so, to me, I don’t see what it accomplishes.”
Gov. Jan Brewer of Arizona agrees as do most all the republican governors.
Gov. Phil Bryant of Mississippi said “Many of the members of this party do not want to fund Obamacare, but what we have to do as governors who work with our legislators is realize the reality of being able to get something passed,”!
Senators Rand Paul {R }of Kentucky and Ted Cruz {R} of Texas two of the Tea Party disagree. Senator Tom Coburn {R} of Oklahoma believes the stop government ideology is doomed and will doom republicans come 2014.
Gov. Terry E. Branstad of Iowa, a Republican defines the art of negotiations and compromise is required and end all this callow bitter fighting of our extremist representatives.
New chairwoman of the National Governors Association, Ms. Fallen said “They need to buckle down, work hard, find consensus on things and certainly find ways of reducing our deficit,” said Ms. Fallin, who rejected the Medicaid expansion in Oklahoma and declined to set up a state health insurance marketplace.
Bobby Jindal of Louisiana, the head of the Republican Governors Association said “We absolutely should use whatever opportunity and tactic we can to repeal and replace Obamacare,” said Mr. Jindal, deeming the prospect of a shutdown nothing more than “a false threat” and “scare tactics” from Mr. Obama’s administration.
LOL if that is not an excellent example of how the right wing PROJECTS their erroneous ideologues’ onto their opponent. Scare tactics! False threats! Its Obama’s fault! Callow does not do justice in describing Bobby’s abilities for originality and leadership.
Gov. Jack Markell of Delaware {D} said “People are getting very tired of politicians who appear to only want to shut things down and not build things up, Far be it from me to give them advice, but it can’t be helpful to them.”
Republicans just wanted to let their constants know that they no longer favor the fragrance and or taste of Tea as it is being served by their bitter ideologues’. Will the Tea Party sober up enough to comprehend the warning of the growing chasm that will be swallowing them up?
Republicans are just now realizing that there constituents are deeply in favor of Obamacare and now they seek how to back pedal without anybody noticing. LOL!

Chasm Widens
A prominent republican lobbyist and former ambassador to Belgium for the G.W. Bush administration stated “ Too many ideologues have come in. You don’t win by what they are doing”
Jeb Bush put this way.“Ronald Reagan and his own father would have a hard time fitting into the contemporary republican party.” Citing that an Orthodoxy ideology presently, has a strangle hold on the republican party.
Jeb Bush goes further to say; “ All too often we’re associated with being anti-everything. Way too many people believe Republicans are anti-immigrant, anti-woman, anti-science, anti-gay, anti-worker, and the list goes on and on and on. Many voters are simply unwilling to choose our candidates, even though they share our core beliefs, because those voters feel unloved, unwanted and unwelcome in our party.”
Load bearing cornerstones of the republican party are suffering under the weight of components of the Tea and its corrosive effects to all that is America.
Jeb Bush can fit in nicely in the democrat party. He would be a democrat of old, not the left liberal craz-oes you have now. Notice how most liberals today hate Kennedy and more than likely, the same liberals killed him. They hated Jacqueline Kennedy so much they tried to compare her to Michelle O'bama. There will never be a Bush or Clinton in the White House while you are still alive.

Conservative republican senators have been, for the past 2 years, structuring their infrastructure to guard against a repeat of the embarrassing defeat of 2012 due to Tea ideologies. Unable to gain the seats to hold the Senate.
Senator Lindsey Graham of S.C. will need to win two votes by the voters to hold his seat. 1} against the {R} Tea candidates 2} against the democratic candidate.
A growing number of {R} candidates will be facing the same gauntlet as Lindsey. Moderate and traditionalist {R’s} will seek to persuade the voters not to vote for the extremist fanatics of their right wing. Tea Senators are under attack with conservative and traditionalist {R’s} seeking to dispel them from their party.
Senator Mitch McConnell of Kentucky {R-TEA} is presently sinking from his perch. Veteran senator Lamar Alexander of Tenn.{R-conservative} Is assailed by Ben Cunningham, president of the Nashville Tea Party.
Fissures and rifts will be illuminated within the republican party with their primaries results.
Have they learned their lesson and will they now cast out the Tea? Will they continue to lose more seats due to the taint of Tea? 2014 will expose their future outcomes and their ability to exhibit leadership. Dysfunctional Tea fanatics to over take the conservative only to lose in the general elections of 2016. Republicans future is at a cross road. Failure of the conservative {R} will result in the demise of their party for Decades to come.
Continued infighting within the {R’s} over core issues {Immigration and Financials} would continue to widen a chasm, splitting the party.
One example of the Tea was recently demonstrated in South Dakota and West Virginia where their candidates failed to expand their powers.
Senator McConnell realizes the dangers of his purity ideologies is failing and begins to back pedal. He once opposed Rand Paul’s austere budget measures he now proudly endorses his austerity measures and goes on to support Rand’s domestic Hemp production endeavors! Yet he voted against the violence against women bill and joined the 13 senators to vote against aid to Egypt.
State senator Lee Bright {R-Tea} S.C. Emphasizes that the traditional conservative republican, Mr. Graham, was too concerned with international affaires and too soft on gun rights, personal liberties and immigration. He declares he is doesn’t care if N.S.A. has his phone number, he will continue to fight for South Carolina to have its own currency and opposes Shariah law!
Mr. Bright could pose a problem for Lindsey Graham in his bid for reelection. After all it is South Carolina. Remember when; Lindsey was booed at the “Silver Elephant dinner” in 2006 and then gets a standing ovation in 2013? Such are the ways of South Carolina..
All in all this should be an interesting mid term election in 2014. Preliminary to the 2016 general elections.
Will the republicans have the leadership to govern their own party? They fail that, what chance do they have on the national governing levels? Slim to none..

Now to define the state of existence for Tea addicts, we just have to access the acronyms of these definitions. For example #1 “Broad Minded” acronym “Closed Minded”
#2 “tolerant of different views and standards of behavior in others” acronym; Intolerant of the views of others and standards of behavior in others. LOL That sure sounds like a BIGOT to me.
Now I think you can do the rest all by yourself and expose yourself as to what you really are.
“The inherent vice of capitalism is the unequal sharing of blessings; the inherent virtue of socialism is the equal sharing of miseries. The truth is incontrovertible, malice may attack it, ignorance may deride it, but in the end; there it is.” Winston Churchill. LOL sounds like a liberal…

Waxman is a Typical right wing nut reply. Answers a question that does not exist in the comment he is replying to. Off on another adventures of illusions with eyes closed. Leaving the rest of us to increasing substance and facts to the threads that these Tea addicts can not fathom. Illuminating their dysfunctional ideology which is not worthy of any form of authority. Back to the herd with them as the Fox keeps nipping at their hoofs.
Now lets observe how austerity can be viewed for the failure that it is. Observe the pyramid structure that it produces.
Austerity harsh profits and its potential failure illuminated.
We now can observe the demise of austerity in Europe. Chancellor Angela Merkel is preaching austerity to their neighbors all the while loosening the purse strings in Germany, to address, a first in its history, minimum wage of $11.50, equal pensions for both the East And West, equal pay for women, tax increases on the affluent, infrastructure funding, education, energy and higher child care.
Ms. Merkel has taken advantage of the undervalued euro, increasing their “EXPORTS” at the cost to their neighbors loses. Greece, Italy, Spain, France and Portugal have carried the cost burden of the austerity of Germany. Alas now a growing rebellion against austerity amongst the VOTERS of these nations is exposing how Germany prospered at their lost.
They bore huge unemployment to their youth and lost of tax revenue. Lost of EXPORTS stifling their ports of profits. Germany on the other hand prospered. Record employment paid for their welfare systems. Debt has soared since 2000 at about 80% of their GDP which is far less than what the USA, France and the UK experienced.
Now Ms. Merkel is facing more than $100 Billion euro’s or $135 Billion over the next 15 years to repair its stock of roads, bridges and railroads. This with a workforce at present of 42 million paying taxes. Their national average of births has declined to 1.4 children. Insufficient for replacement rate of 2.1. Child Care systems will require additional financial attention.
Now their neighbors scorn how Germany has taken advantage of them. The EU is coming under attack for reform.
Political scientist Roberto d’Alimonte of Luiss Guido Carli University has no doubts that Germany will have to pay restitution for the damage it has bestowed upon its neighbors. Not to do so would erode Germany’s standing.
“What place in history can Germany have without Europe? A community of values has to include also some kind of solidarity. Because without that, it will not
survive.”

Winds of change, as natural as can be, is being demonstrated by our leadership state on politics, California.
Oh how they emulated our nation with partisan paralysis and government dysfunction. A place where runaway deficits, gridlocked budgets and voter initiatives suppressed.
Slashed by the power of their legislators. Circuses of recalls sprang up and climaxing with recalling a governor with but 10 months in his second term.
Presently California has once again taken the lead of leadership.

Celebrating with parades of bill signings that were never the norm before are becoming common place. Sharp difference from the National political agenda, that have so much difficulty in addressing any issue and finding a solution.

California is now the acrimony of our national shameful dysfunctional congress. California has moved on school financing, immigrations, gun control, and abortions. California has moved on to new frontiers of political problems as they arise

Striking a tone for fiscal issues and productivity moderation under a one party rule of the democrats. Only 3 years ago a republican governor held power. Presently the republicans have been dismissed to a point of irrelevance. House, Senate and Executive branches are now completely under democrat control.

Sacramento is presently demonstrating the benefits of on party rule under democratic rule. Eliminating partisanship rule they have republicans now voting on immigration reforms ! Democrats voting for streamlining environmental regulations ! Something unheard of before, as stated by Jesse M. Unruh Institute of Politics at the University of Southern California. How you may ask?

Nonpartisan commission drew the lines for districts voters representations. No longer under the biases of a calculating political party.
Voters approved of removing stringent term limits on their representatives and senators. Increasing experienced lawmakers who are not always ruling with their eyes on the horizon for the next election cycle. Adding experienced politics with focused senators and representatives.… Results..

Republican Anthony Cannella co-sponsored a bill with Democrat Governor Brown on permitting unauthorized immigrants to obtain drivers licenses. Stating that he is no longer stringently held to the republican base, as a result of the independent nonpartisan commission drawing the lines for district voters.“It’s given more courage to my Republican colleagues,” he said.“They were afraid of getting primaries. Now, it’s not just their base they have to appeal to.”

Adam Mendelsohn a senior republican advisor championed the ballot changes.
“It gives Republicans the chance to break from their caucus on certain issues,” he said.“It is very different than it was four or five years ago.”

Democrats are also feeling the changes. J. Stephen Peace head of Independent Voters sites an example; “Look at the Chamber of Commerce job kills list — every measure on it was defeated except the increase in the minimum wage.”

Kathy Feng executive director of Common Cause analysis ; “They have already started to create a more functional Legislature ”“In light of the shutdown on the federal level, what happened in California has provided even more of a contrast.”

Sam Blakeslee {R} head of the California Reform Institute ; “We can already see that these reforms are improving the function of the Legislature and forcing people to come out of their partisan boxes and talk to the broader electorate,”“We’re seeing, almost against the odds, a more centrist Legislature, at least when it comes to jobs and budget issues.”
Once again California has discovered the political leadership to eradicate us from the dysfunctional by partisan party ideology that plagues this nation.“As California goes, so does the nation”….
