LOOK at the polls Sonic. Pull your head out and look. Obama is underwater for foreign policy, Obamacare and economics.
LOL

foreign policy....too hawkish. Americans are tired of fighting wars. tired of hearing threats of war. tired of losing men for no good reason. tired of DC lobbies convincing Congress to spend money on the military that doesn't need to be spent.

Obamacare....billions spent on right wing disinformation campaign. despite that, 8 million sign up. getting more popular by the day.

economics.....GOP in Congress. on purpose. just ask them.

Sen. Claire McCaskill believes Secretary of State John Kerry has some explaining to do

"
Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-Mo.) is seeking an explanation for the State Department’s recent request for outside tutors to teach a course on how to survive congressional hearings.

In a letter sent to Secretary of State John Kerry this week, McCaskill, the chairman of the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs subcommittee on financial and contracting oversight, questions whether paying contractors to prep officials to face Congress is a good use of the agency’s resources.

“I question the Department’s decision to award a new contract to manage its communications with Congress, rather than focusing its time and attention on fixing its underlying problems,” McCaskill wrote, citing an April inspector general’s finding that the department’s oversight of its contracts leaves much to be desired."

Krauthammer also missteps when he says the YouTube explanation couldn’t have come from the intelligence community because deputy CIA director Michael Morell testified that the idea “didn’t come from him.” But Morell said under oath that his top CIA counterterror analyst wrote the original draft of the talking points, in which the agency concluded, on balance, the attacks had been intertwined with a video protest. Krauthammer says the video explanation has to have come from the State Department or the White House — Morell said it came from the intelligence community and that the White House never made any substantive comments.

The State Department did demand a watering-down of the talking points’ discussion of warnings before the attacks (presumably for self-interested reasons) and the involvement of al-Qaeda-tied groups, which they got from the CIA. The one remaining issue is why exactly the State Department demanded those changes, and how they got them done: The White House has tried to play this down, as I wrote last year, but State got lots of potentially controversial details taken out at the request not of an Obama appointee but career civil servant Victoria Nuland. There are reasonable if not satisfactory reasons for why State would have done that, but they could have done it to make themselves look good. That would be a scandal all its own — but not the one Benghazi theorists keep claiming is afoot. CIA officials, including Morell, generally have said they agreed to the edits State suggested, and it wasn’t forced. Maybe that’s all suspicious, and maybe the CIA or the Director of National Intelligence are horribly politicized and compromised — but they also make mistakes. We just don’t know. Meanwhile, Republicans, and Krauthammer in this instance, are trying to pretend the White House played a role that we have no evidence, just our own suspicions, to believe they did.

Seizing Control: A Better Way to Cover the White House
"Don't go to White House briefings. They're a waste of time. The press secretary rarely makes news and, when he does, the information is a stale commodity; everybody gets it. While your competitors rot away in the briefing room, slip outside the gates and grab a meal or cup of coffee with a potential source, ideally one who doesn't work in the White House. Blowing off briefings is a competitive advantage.
Cover the White House from the "outside in." That's the phrase used by Caren Bohan of Reuters to describe her mastery of agencies and legislative offices disconnected from the White House vault. When Politico asked for tips on how to cover the White House, Jonathan Karl of ABC News said, "By going outside the White House – to Congress, the Pentagon, the State Department or the political world."

Of course.
The numbers are counted differently since the black guy got in office.
Stick to making a fkn fool of yourself denying climate change is man made.
That was truly a dumb comment and NOT what the article stated.

"The Bureau of Labor Statistics reported Friday that the U.S. unemployment rate fell to 6.3% in April, the lowest level since the collapse of Lehman Bros. in September 2008, and the largest one-month drop in the jobless rate in three years.

Don’t believe it. The data come from a survey of about 60,000 households. In normal times, it’s pretty volatile. In April, it was absolutely bonkers. Many of the statistics in the survey are extreme outliers, producing values far outside the normal ranges.

It’s simply not believable that the labor market contracted so violently according to one survey, while at the same time a separate survey of business establishments showed strong payroll growth of 288,000.

Consider this: The jobless rate fell because 733,000 fewer people were considered unemployed. That’s the largest one-month decline since 1949, when unemployment fell by 920,000 when two large national strikes concluded.

Nothing like that happened in April.

The number of people in the labor force plunged by 806,000, the largest since last October when the federal government shutdown pushed a lot of people out. Nothing like that happened in April.

The big reason for the decline in the labor force was a sharp drop of 417,000 in the number of people who have been previously employed and who started a job or started looking for a job in April. "

Any homeless person can walk into any ER and be treated.
The majority of the homeless reside in the bigger cities. There's at least a half dozen free clinics right here in Orlando.
If the democrats had concentrated more on lowering the costs of health care and compromised with republicans on solutions that were better than what we have now - which is a lawyer's smorgasbord and a tax nightmare - it would have been a lot cheaper just to treat the poor in ERs and free clinics at the taxpayer's expense. We were doing that anyway.
Obamacare is just making more people homeless.
You just don't get it. People go to the ER and free clinics with symptoms. Often too late. The ACA allows them to see a doctor on a regular basis so abnormalities can be detected early. Often before any noticeable symptoms appear. I'm alive because of early detection. Catching cancer early is a blessing that should be available to everyone regardless of their ability to pay.

the typical physical exam does very little to detect most cancers prior to symptoms.....
and absolutely nothing to "prevent" cancer.....
A person isn't going to go to the ER or a clinic for a little discomfort...a twinge here or there, an annoying ache, a little heartburn, a back ache or general weakness. All of which are symptoms of a serious illness. For example, abnormal lung sounds heard through a stethoscope may be signs of pneumonia. A back ache can be a sign of pancreatic cancer. A rise in blood calcium levels can be a sign of lung cancer. A typical physical exam may not "prevent" cancer but it can prevent cancer from spreading to other parts of the body. Catching cancer before it metastasizes is the key to survival.

You are so right, I also defeated cancer mostly because of early detection. I'm fortunate that I can go anywhere in the world and receive medical attention. But I know a number of people that have to suck it up and by the time they become critical it's too late. That is so sad in the richest nation on earth. How any one could possible be against any kind of healthcare is beyond me, although in this particular case it's mostly all politics and the human aspect is totally ignored. The Republican party has become the health grinch.
