It’s official — the government of the United States of Obama consists of boobs and bores and is led by a narcissist. It is no consolation that Great Britain joins us in racing to the bottom.
President Obama’s flirting with Denmark’s prime minister would be shameful on any occasion. That it happened at the memorial for Nelson Mandela only adds to the embarrassment.
But the “selfie” episode also symbolizes the greater global calamity of Western decline. With British prime minister David Cameron playing the role of Obama’s giggling wingman, the “look at me” moment confirms we have unserious leaders in a dangerously serious time.
Iran marches toward nuclear weapons and already there is talk in military circles that a nuclear-armed Iran could mean mushroom clouds in the Mideast within five years.
China is flexing its muscles throughout Asia, its ships brazenly confronting ours on the high seas. Russia is expanding its writ in the Arab lands and in Eastern Europe while making casual threats about bombing America. Syria’s Assad uses chemical weapons and Obama and Cameron rattle little sabers before meekly agreeing to become his partner.
The sign-language interpreter wasn’t the only fake at the Mandela funeral. Obama and Cameron were posing as world leaders.
1980 - Reagan wins election and the Republicans' take of the U.S. Senate -- greatly helped, of course, by stagnation, the surrender of the Panama Canal, record interest rates, the hollowing-out of the American military, the Misery Index, gas lines and 60,000 Cuban troops in southern Africa and the Horn of Africa (not to mention a Communist takeover in Nicaragua and a Communist insurgency in El Salvador)-- was a rare and striking rejection of an American President named Jimmy Carter.

2013 - The Great Recession lingers. Obamacare is loosed on the land. Congress struggles with gridlock and bitter division.

The print, on-line and on-air media have divided along political lines. So, too, have the states, into Red and Blue, as the American people continue to sort themselves geographically.

Not least, foreign challenges are gathering yet again - in the East and South China Seas, in Central Asia and across the Middle East and Near East. Ten days ago, an American guided missile frigate and Chinese navy flotilla led by China's new aircraft carrier came within 200 yards of a high seas collision -- and an international incident.

Whether it's in Syria, Ukraine, Benghazi or the Senkaku Islands, men who are no friends to America are proving the truth of former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld's maxim that "weakness is provocative."

Sen. John McCain says he'll support the compromise budget bill passed by the House and pending in the Senate.

"I hope it will pass the Senate," the Arizona Republican said Sunday on CNN's "State of the Union." We must not shut down the government again. We can't do that to the people of this country and my state."

McCain said Senate Armed Services Committee Chairman Carl Levin (D-Mich.) has pledged to review a provision concerning military retirement.

there will be immense pressure on Republicans to help DemoKKKrats "fix" ObamaKKKare instead of allowing it to implode...
Pretty sure there's nothing to worry about there. Democrats are starting to follow Republicans' lead with some aspects of ObamaCare. After millions more lose their insurance next year, there could be even more breaking ranks.

ObamaCare can't be fixed. It's like a sinking ocean liner. Once it takes on too much water, it's time to jump - not look for breaches in the water tight compartments.

Republicans already know this. Democrats either know or will find out very soon.

It's just nice to know states are exercising their rights and cutting the cord with the federal government.

It's a small gesture, granted. But nothing is going to happen with ObamaCare anytime soon.

The federal government food stamp program, part of the U.S. Dept. or Agriculture, is pleased to currently be distributing the greatest amount of food stamps ever in our nation's Obama history...

Meanwhile, the U.S. National Park Service, also part of the U.S. Dept of Agriculture, asks us "Please do not feed the animals" as the animals may become dependent on handouts and not learn to take care of themselves.

Yes you hillbilly's are that stupid. You can't fix stupid...

The National Park Service is part of the Department of the Interior not Agriculture.

If that isn't dumb enough,then "No Surprise" considers poor people as just lower echelon animals and not people.

So why didn't these states not create their own exchanges?

I thought you f*cking bozos were all about the states doing everything but when it came o the ACA they let the federal government dictate their exchanges.

McCain was tested as a leader in the military and had years of leadership experience in Congress. Obama wore his radical liberalism on his sleeve as a junior senator.
A difference there too.
A leader? What exactly did McCain lead doll?

Oh that's right, he lead the entire Navy in crashed and otherwise destroyed aircraft.

His daddy was a leader__ he was a pilot who was captured by the enemy on his twenty third mission.

It's the political pendulum. It always swings back the other way usually after two terms.
Why is that?

Eed, either find the place in the ACA where it defines provider networks or just STFU.

You are a liar. The ACA has nothing to do with defining provider networks. This is an insurance company or provider decision.

You're either completely ignorant or dishonest. After reading several of your posts over the past few weeks my guess is both.
[A] breakdown [of the ACA] finds that there are more than 700 instances in which the Secretary is instructed that she "shall" do something, and more than 200 cases in which she "may" take some form of regulatory action if she chooses.
On 139 occasions, the law mentions decisions that the "Secretary determines." At times, the frequency of these mentions reaches comic heights. For instance, one section of the law reads: "Each person to whom the Secretary provided information under subsection (d) shall report to the Secretary in such manner as the Secretary determines appropriate."
In language even you can understand, your claim is bullshit.
So Ray, please provide the regulation that determines what provider networks must be?

Racist Fool. Wake-up and smell the sh it on your face.
What did he run? What company? Was he a mayor? Governor?

The fact is John McCain did not run anything.

Reading you right whiners try to dispute that is comical.

Your buddy Michel just called you a rube for voting for someone ho never ran anything. Then you voted for Ryan as VP who never ran anything. Kind of makes you a double rube.
