the current iteration of the GOP is running headlong over the far right wing cliffs of insanity...
I thought John Huntsman was one who could have won Democratic votes. But he wasn't far right enough. The Teaparty faction of the Republican party is ruining any chances of winning the White House for a long time to come.

Fox Falls For Tabloid "Science"
Fox News is promoting a report from a British tabloid to claim that new data shows "Global Warming [Is] Over." But the agency that released the data explained that the tabloid report is "misleading" because it is based on a short-term period that obscures the long-term upward trend in global temperatures.
http://mediamatters.org/research/2012/10/15/f...
no they don't.
FOX News? FOX should be taken to task for calling the sht it serves news. Today the focus there is ObamaCare, Keystone with a sprinkle of cruise ship slamming.

It's political entertainment according to former FOX superstar Glenn Beck, designed to pleasure fragile, elderly, white men.

"Who then drag the sht to comment boards everywhere as though it was gospel." LMAO

It only took 5 years! If the economy was so good, why are they extending unemployment still after all these years?
"Economy Is Expanding, but Obama’s Legacy May Be Slipping Away"
But even if 2014 turns out to be what the president called a “breakout year” in his State of the Union address Tuesday, the country will still have a lot of catching up to do before the gains recorded under Mr. Obama match those of his two predecessors in the White House.

Dumbass Galt thinks the CBO didn't count the additions to Medicaid that were spelled out in the ACA.
Galt is reasonably certain that the CBO deliberately underestimated the costs of expanded Medicaid, just as they fudged all the other data in order to justify ObamaKKKare.....

Decrees and edicts from the President aren't laws, you moron.
How about I teach you some basics about the United States of America. We can start here:

Let me sum it up for you.
The President can't write his own laws.
So, why do you want to destroy the constitutional republic and replace it with a dictatorship where the president can rule subjects with decrees and edicts?
Because he claims to be a conservative?[snicker]

Another bogus Obamacare story: The GOP's 'Bette'

The centerpiece of the Republican party's attack on the Affordable Care Act following President Obama's State of the Union address this week was the story of "Bette."

At the beginning of this week, three GOP senators unveiled their alternative to Obamacare — a set of conservative policies that would essentially dismantle the health law’s core consumer protections, and give insurers an opening to deny coverage to people with pre-existing health conditions. And on Thursday, in an interview with one of the primary architects of the proposal, Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-UT), MSNBC host Chuck Todd exposed another consequence of the GOP measure. It would actually serve to raise premiums for vulnerable Americans, like elderly people with debilitating health issues.
The Republican proposal promises to allow younger Americans to pay lower premiums for their health plans, and loosens some of the regulations that prevent insurance companies from setting their rates based on factors like health or gender. Todd pointed out that could ultimately result in older people, particularly those who are dealing with the health consequences of aging, paying much more for their care.
Hatch didn’t dispute that, acknowledging that “somebody has to pay for these things”:

imagine that....an approach that charges premiums in according with risk......
