Obama, clueless as usual:
The Obama administration once again appears to have been caught off guard by an explosion of violence in a country U.S. forces helped liberate from a dictator.
Al Qaeda-aligned Sunni militants were advancing south and threatening to move on Baghdad on Thursday after overrunning the northern Iraq cities of Mosul and Tikrit -- with Iraqi government forces in rapid retreat.
White House and State Department officials say the Obama administration is considering sending additional aid, but have not specified what that might be.

Idiotspeak__this has been playing out for months. Fox and friends were to busy selling faux scandals to report on how ISIS ISIL et al were getting their azzes handed to them in Syria not only by the Syrian military but by other rebel freedom fighter groups.

They're going home now to try to overthrow their own government and muss up the Shiites.

Betcha that Nouri al Maliki wishes he'd signed off on keeping a small force of American soldiers in Iraq.

Why Cantor's upset is bad news for Obama The Week (RSS)
The [email protected] on Twitter
For President Obama, Eric Cantor's loss is a case of 'be careful what you wish for': bit.ly/1xICZCG pic.twitter.com/UQMflAtGcy 6 hrs ago
"So if you think Barack Obama has trouble dealing with House Republicans now, you haven't seen anything yet. Not only is the GOP favored to pick up an additional five to eight House seats in November — adding to its 233-199 majority (there are three current vacancies)— it could also pick up four to eight more Senate seats. A gain of six would give the Republicans a majority.'
It wasn't bad news for Obama, it was bad news for Republican members of Congress.

"By any measure, David Brat’s victory was really, really bad news for just about everyone, especially and specifically Normals in both parties. I hate to be Debbie Downer, but here’s why Cantor’s loss is everyone’s loss."

1) David Brat is a hardcore, extreme-right-wing John Calvin-admiring Christian Reconstructionist, which, among other things, endorses theocratic government. And we totally need more of those people voting on laws that impact the entire nation.

2) Brat is an economics professor at Randolph-Macon College in Ashland, VA. He once co-published a paper titled,“An Analysis of the Moral Foundations in Ayn Rand.” Yep, another tea party libertarian on his way to enrolling in a government-run healthcare plan while collecting a government paycheck drawn from redistributed tax revenue.

3) Even though the GOP would do well to jettison the crazies, Brat’s surprise victory will force the party further to its right, making it even more unwilling to bargain with the Democrats or even moderate Republicans. It doesn’t seem possible the GOP could be less amenable to compromise, but any remaining wiggle room will be dashed away as more tea party candidates like Brat are sworn in.

4) Cantor has been in lockstep against the White House every step of the way, having voted with his party 95 percent of the time, outpacing the most radical members of the caucus, such as Rep. Steve Stockman (R-TX), Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) and Rep. Steve King (R-IA). And yet Cantor wasn’t hardline enough for his district.

5) The Republicans have a serious polling problem. Maybe this is the only ray of sunshine for the Democrats. Ever since the GOP was totally flummoxed by polling in 2012, it clearly hasn’t ironed out its math skills two years later. Going into Tuesday’s primary, one poll showed Cantor up by 13 points, while an internal Cantor poll showed the incumbent leading by 34 points. You could say Brat [cough] unskewed the polls. By the way, Mitt Romney won in the district by 15 points. Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) won by seven points. President Bush won the district in both 2000 and 2004 by 23 points..."

The Republican Party establishment has got to be wondering how the hell it came to this. But the party only has itself to blame for allowing its far-right flank to wag the dog. Worse yet, this is very simply bad news for the discourse. Any notion of Democrats and Republicans actually engaging in a reasonable, rational debate died a little more last night, with theocratic, climate crisis-denying, impeachment fetishists gaining ground. Sure, Cantor’s voting record showed that he wasn’t particularly willing to break ranks, but at least he wasn’t apeshit crazy in the process. Sadly, the Crazy Caucus will probably gain a new member next January.

Impeach Obama? Fox News analyst says President Obama must go, bad for America
Should the U.S. people impeach Obama over the recent controversy regarding the Bowe Bergdahl swap and other political matters? Impeaching President Obama is what needs to be done, argues Fox News analyst and former Judge Jeanine Pirro this week in a now viral video. The Inquisitr shares Pirro’s…
Examiner.com from RSS
Deja vu. By this time in Bush's tenure, an official resolution to create an investigative committee to consider impeachment of Bush had already been filed. Ultimately, 35 articles of impeachment were filed against him on June 10, 2008 in the House. The House voted 251 to 166 to refer the impeachment resolution to the Judiciary Committee but Bush was saved by the end of his term. If anyone deserved to be impeached, it was George W. Bush.

No one that isn't a probationary employee can be fired without due cause. The anti-tenure people are ignorning the elephant in the room...holding supervisors accountable. It takes work to document an employee's personnel file to avoid a wrongful termination lawsuit. It's time consuming and burdensome. Add to that the FACT, that attorneys are never in a hurry to settle a lawsuit, it is expensive. Doesn't matter if it is a teacher or a bank secretary. Results are the same. Tenure has nothing to do with it.
One article I recently read about hearings in the New York school system for teacher firings complained that teachers who were verbally abusive to parents were returned to the classroom. Really? Can you understand why tenure is important? "Last hired, first fired" is not the enemy.
Right wing morons rip unions as unnecessary protection from subjective evaluations by administrators used to evaluate employee performance. Then in the next breath they rant about the incompetency of the same leaders who are making these evaluations.

That is a totally ridiculous accusation.

To associate one man (and his girlfriend) killing two cops because he hated them for some reason with anyone's political point of view is ludicrous and naïve.

No one hates government. Most of us DO hate a radical liberal ideology that wants total control of the economy and intrudes into our lives, our wallets and the private sector to do so.

No one wants to overthrow the government. We DO want states' rights restored and a lot less bureaucracy at the federal level which is so overbloated it can't manage itself - much less us.

Just how bad and incompetent does any administration have to be before you cry "uncle"? This one is going to break some bones the longer you resist.

Keven McCarthy, January 20, 2009: "Show united and unyielding opposition to the president’s economic policies."
"uselesssinceforever000 "
Why would not Keven McCarthy say "Show united and unyielding opposition to the president's economic policies". president nobama's economic policies have not been good for the nation. Take a look;
- Fewer American's with a job
- More American's requiring food stamps to eat
- American household income down sharply
- Negative GDP growth
- Fewer American's paying Federal Income tax
I take it you approve of the presidents policies that have produced the above results?
