Of course who is Krauthammer compared to you when it comes to valid opinions. He is only a Pulitzer Prize-winning syndicated columnist, political commentator, and physician. How can he possibly compete intellectually with someone who runs a street sweeper!
Your arrogance is truly laughable.
if you could only counter my facts!

so can russia occupy teh Ukraine without it turning into another Afghanistan for them? no, they cannot..

guess i am smarter than kraut! like i said, he is a talking head discussing theories and global chessgames. i deal with reality.

You can also find mainstream news online now. FYI.
But please find me any source from any media news outlet where the numbers have been broken down of those who have "signed up".
Because it makes a big difference how many of the 6 million are actually paying. And how many young people are in the "paying" category. Even you must know they counted on a lot of young people paying more for health insurance when they are the healthiest among us.
It has to do with Obama's roots in Marxism and his redistribution thing.
Hey, Chucky Cheese, it's like the last Presidential election, Romney thought he'd won right up to the last 15 minutes before they called it. What a moron... Back to what you was blabbin' about, there are probably 6 or 7 million paid signees. There are another 3 million or so Medicaid expansion enrollees, despite the pathetic efforts of republican governors and legislature to block implementation. They are attempting to block implementation because the GOP/big business see it as a wedge issue in the mid-terms and intend to try and use the ACA as their core dividing issue for voters. No more no less. If you want to know who won the insurance election going on right now, you might want to wait til it's over, puddin'. I'm confident that there are plenty of capable souls watching for the answers you CLAIM to seek. They'll let us know, I'm sure, when they're done. Or do you want the Supreme Court to call it in the air again?

When the dog charged at me last week, I called the police. As soon as the police left; he was madder than a hornet and promptly drove his filthy old pickup truck and parked in on my swale and stood in the street glaring at my house with hands on hips. I called the police again; the same cop came and yelled at him to get his truck off my property and tie up the dog. He did.
But, next day, same story. So that is the dilemma, the cop said he has to see the dog running loose, that he is allowed to have his dogs on his property, but there is nothing stopping them from leaving the yard. So, I'm going to get cameras so I can bust him in the act when he thinks I am not home. See what happens.

Carol off Abortion yarn today ...Benghazi, He was born in Kenya, and "naked pictures" this weekend?
LOL

I wonder how many abortions we would have if men had babies? I have never heard of a man dying from having a baby. If you took abortion, homosexuals and religion out of the Republicans campaigns hell what would you have left. Lord knows the real issues are always overshadowed by those fake ones. Now they are fixated on Benghazi, IRS, Obamacare. Why anyone would even consider a Republican is only explainable by their lack of intellect and inability to decipher fact from fiction and also being totally void of self thought.

Hell just read on here the mentality of most righties, they sound like retarded chimps. Waxman, Shinning, Fetch, and a number of others that never make any real sense. It's basically one Gaa, gaa, goo, goo, after the other. They prove over and over that 30% of the dumbest Americans can be made to believe anything, They use pretty much the very same indoctrination as did the Third Reich, work up the masses into a frenzy with BS, hell Carol could be Ava Braun, just not as smart.

He won't allow a vote on a bill to repeal, defund or obstruct the success of the Affordable Care Act.

The Republican House voted for 54 bills involving the ACA. All but six were to repeal or drastically defund provisions of the law. Five of those six were signed by Obama. I might add, that one of those bills passed by the Republican House was a vote to delay by one year the implementation of the law's employer mandate which Obama implemented by Executive Order and Republicans threw a hissy fit. The only thing that will appease a Rethug is repeal of the ACA. That isn't going to happen.

Now It's Condoleezza Rice's Turn To Rally Americans For Another War
It's hard out there for a neoconservative, what with poll after poll showing that most Americans want no part of another military conflict. But rather than accept such war-weariness, the hawks are trying their best to mobilize the country again.
Condoleezza Rice did her part at a Republican fundraiser on Wednesday.
“I fully understand the sense of weariness," the former secretary of state under George W. Bush said, as quoted by the Washington Post. "I fully understand that we must think:‘Us, again?’ I know that we’ve been through two wars. I know that we’ve been vigilant against terrorism. I know that it’s hard. But leaders can’t afford to get tired. Leaders can’t afford to be weary.”
Rice's remarks came a week after Bill Kristol, the forever-bellicose and consistently wrong pundit, wrote that a "war-weary public can be awakened and rallied."
"Will no brave leader step forward to honorably awaken us from our unworthy sleep?" Kristol pleaded.
http://talkingpointsmemo.com/livewire/condole...
so unless you're a paranoid FOXbot, you're unworthy.
What about Dick Durbin (Democrat-Walgreens-Illinois): he said it was shame that a senator instead of the President had to lead against Russia-exactly what is he saying? Durbin the Turbin is the leader now?

Do Republicans owe Nate Silver an apology?

The election results closely matched the data-guru's projections — the same forecasts conservatives consistently dismissed. Are they ready to eat crow?

"Skewed!" In the lead-up to the election, that conservative cri de coeur met almost every poll showing President Obama with a lead in the Electoral College. And no forecaster bore the brunt of conservative ire more than The New York Times' polling guru, Nate Silver, who steadfastly projected an Obama win with almost cocky certainty, even when Mitt Romney's numbers surged after the first debate. Conservative commentators muttered dark suspicions that Silver was juicing the stats, or voiced skepticism about his methodology, or complained that his projections simply couldn't be right given how close the race was on a national level. But when the votes were counted on Nov. 6, and Obama wrapped up the Electoral College before Virginia or Florida were even called, Silver was vindicated. Many Romney supporters were stunned that Obama had won so decisively. Do conservatives owe Silver an apology?

http://theweek.com/article/index/236040/do-re...

"Silver infuriated conservatives with his model, which uses a number of measurements and calculations, including attention to state polls," but it turned out to be an incredibly reliable snapshot of the voting electorate.
