""But several factors continue to buoy the president, most notably the deep unpopularity of his opponents.
Only 21% of those surveyed said they approve of the job Republican leaders in Congress are doing, with 72% disapproving. Those numbers are essentially unchanged from the low point the GOP hit during the government shutdown in October.
Feelings about the Republican Party as a whole are also negative, with 35% having a favorable view and 59% an unfavorable one.

Dem Pollster Shocked to Find No Racism in Tea Partiers, So They Invent Some

[...] the pollsters even confess that they “expected” to find more racism among Republican voters.“We expected that in this comfortable setting or in their private written notes, some would make a racial reference or racist slur when talking about the African American President,” they confess.“None did.”

CNN political analyst Gloria Borger:

"One of the questions we've been asking over these last months is why didn't the president know on a variety of issues, right? And so the question, why didn't he know about the Web site?

Why didn't he know about the IRS scandal?

I think that John Podesta is a hand who can say, look, this needs to get to the president and we need to let him in on some of the secrets we've been keeping from him."

Obama 'didn't know?' Keeping secrets from Obama? These people are hilarious.

President takes a self picture, rightwingers go insane, meanwhile...

WASHINGTON (Reuters)- Law enforcement agents are searching the home of a top aide to Republican Senator Lamar Alexander in connection with child pornography allegations, the Tennessee lawmaker said in a statement on Wednesday.

Alexander, citing the Senate's legal office, said investigators were searching the Washington home of Ryan Loskarn, his chief of staff.

"I am stunned, surprised and disappointed by what I have learned," he said, adding that Loskarn has been placed on leave from the senator's office, which is "fully cooperating with the investigation."

The senator gave no other details, and a call to Loskarn's home was not answered.

First of all, the United States has agreed to LOAN, not give, up to $10 billion (not $2 billion) to Petrobras just as China and other countries have done for oil concessions. I don't have a problem with LOANING money to the oil industry to develop their reserves. I have a problem with GIVING them money to put in their pockets while price gouging at the pump.
George Soros is a smart man. He knows a good investment when he sees one. He doesn't GIVE anyone anything without expecting a return.
You should refrain from commenting on subjects you are obviously ignorant of.

The original "loan" was 2 billion. If it was increased to 10 billion, that's still stupid.

Petrobras cancelled all contracts with drilling contractors in Brasil. So, VERY OBVIOUSLY, Petrobras will not be "borrowing" money to develop its oil reserves, moron.

When Democrats "loan" money, they are just giving it away.(CRA disaster, if you need a reference about bad loans forced by Democrats.)

If Petrobras was a good investment for Soros, then WHYTHEFUCK DO THEY NEED A GODDAM LOAN?

Since it's American money, why didn't Obama "loan" that money to an American company?

Let's put this together.
Petrobras gets a 2 billion dollar "loan" from Obama to buy American "products".
Petrobras cancels all contracts with drilling contractors in Brasil.
BP will put all their Gulf of Mexico deepwater reserves up for sale.

Are the BP oil reserves in the US an "American Product"?

If Obama gives Petrobras the money to buy the BP oil reserves in the US, and every other company has to dig into their own pockets to bid against Petrobras, doesn't that:
1) Give the national oil company an unfair advantage?
2) Reduce the negotiated sale price?(You'd actually have to know something about how commerce works in a capitalist system to answer this one.)

Why is Petrobras the only oil company Obama is subsidizing?

Give it up.
John Boehner, Lindsey Graham and a whole mess DC's elected appointed and anointed will be presenting their physicians with insurance purchased through a state or federal exchange.

Yes. Tell about how the first American patriots burned anyone who disagreed with them to death on a public street in broad daylight to terrorize the rest of the population.
"Terrorism is often used to change the status quo."
By terrorists only. Civilized people do not use terrorism.
What don't you understand about that?
As an example, the communists the Democrats helped during the Cold War were extreme terrorists as a matter of standard strategy and tactics.
Among combatants, terrorism is a constant notion and temptation. Americans almost never succumb. That was the most obvious difference between us and the communists during the Cold War.
And who did the Democrats join during the Cold War?
The terrorists, of course. Just like today, the Democrats joined the Arab terrorists.
What is it about terrorism that attracts the Democrats?
You're too stupid to comprehend, but here's the lesson anyway:

Sons of Liberty:
Patriots or Terrorists?
How A Secret Society of Rebel Americans
Made Its Mark on Early America

""It was the Boston Committee of Correspondence that directed the Boston Tea Party action of December 16, 1773.1 Upset with the lack of redress concerning the new tax on tea established by the British government for importation of tea to Boston, a small band of the Boston Committee of Correspondence members (approximately fifty in number) led by Samuel Adams, proceeded to empty three ships worth and 342 chests of tea into Boston Harbor in protest.2

Was this an early terrorist action or a patriotic action. Surely, the answer lies with perspective. If you were a British official, this action was treasonous and punishable by death. If you were an American colonial citizen, this event would be seen as a glorious action of the freedom fighters worthy of praise, pride, and acclaim.""

"Sometimes, the actions and reactions of the Sons of Liberty to the Stamp Act took a violent turn as recorded in a local New York City merchant's diary in April, 1765. Violence broke out with the arrival of a shipment of stamped paper to the Royal Governor's residence. Cadwallder Colden, the acting Royal Governor of the New York colony and scholarly correspondent of Benjamin Franklin and Dr. Samuel Johnson, was extremely frightened of the patriotic group and so locked himself up securely inside Fort George immediately after he received the stamped paper from British officials. A few hours after receiving the official papers, a raucous mob captured the governor's gilded and spectacular coach and reduced it to a pile of ashes. From here the mob (consisting largely of extremist elements of the New York Sons of Liberty) raced uptown to the home of Fort George's commander, smashing numerous windows and breaking into the wine cellar to sustain their "patriotism" before descending on the rest of the house in a convulsion of vandalism.7 Tarring and feathering Loyalists — those individuals who sympathized and were supportive of the British Crown, royal tax collectors, and other officials — was a common practice carried out by the more radical elements of the organizations."

Pouring boiling tar on people and killing them is so more humane than using tires. LOL

If there had been tires, the American Colonial Terrorists would have used them.

‘Affluenza’ Teen Gets Away With Killing Four

What a freaking outrage in Fort Worth!:

A juvenile court judge sentenced 16-year-old Ethan Couch to 10 years’ probation Tuesday for the drunken driving crash that killed four people.

Judge Jean Boyd could have sentenced Couch to 20 years behind bars.

Youth pastor Brian Jennings; mother and daughter Hollie and Shelby Boyles; and 24-year-old Breanna Mitchell died in the June 15 accident.

Boyd told the teen that he is responsible for what happened, but she didn’t believe he would receive the necessary therapy in jail.

More:

Prior to sentencing, a psychologist called by the defense, Dr. G. Dick Miller, testified that Couch’s life could be salvaged with one to two years’ treatment and no contact with his parents.

Investigators said Couch was driving a pickup truck between 68 and 70 miles-per-hour in a 40 mph zone. The four who died were standing on the side of the road outside their vehicle. Nine others were hurt.

Miller said Couch’s parents gave him “freedoms no young person should have.” He called Couch a product of “affluenza,” where his family felt that wealth bought privilege and there was no rational link between behavior and consequences.

He said Couch got whatever he wanted. As an example, Miller said Couch’s parents gave no punishment after police ticketed the then-15-year-old when he was found in a parked pickup with a passed out, undressed, 14-year-old girl.

Miller also pointed out that Couch was allowed to drive at age 13. He said the teen was emotionally flat and needed years of therapy.

At the time of the fatal wreck, Couch had a blood alcohol content of 0.24, said Tarrant County Sheriff Dee Anderson, four times the legal limit for an adult.

Unbelievable. Disgusting. This poor little rich kid killed four people — four people!— and because he suffered from “affluenza,” he won’t serve a day in jail. Not one day. Good work, Dr. G. Dick Miller and Judge Jean Boyd.
