Barack Obama, our next President

"The road ahead will be long. Our climb will be steep," Obama cautioned. Young and charismatic but with little experience on the national level, Obama smashed through racial barriers and easily defeated ... Full Story

The Republican Party is looking for a new identity. And they’re looking, literally, everywhere.

At the Republican Governors Association in Las Vegas, former Mississippi Governor Haley Barbour was the most … shall we say … direct, proclaiming,“We’ve got to give our political organizational activity a very serious proctology exam. We need to look everywhere.”

Lovely.[...]

I’m loath to give the Republicans advice, but I’d humbly suggest that rather than giving their organization an uncomfortable exam just to change their tone, technology and turnout, they consider changing their ideas.

And I’d suggest they start by looking at their position on freedom.

The Republican Party has a major credibility gap on that issue. Why? The Republicans are for free enterprise, but not free people. And that is their fundamental problem.

The problem with that logic is that Democrats, particularly those on the hard left, are very happy to increase everybody's taxes, not just those of the wealthy.
OMG, paying for what you spend.

Certainly not a Republican problem - unfunded tax cuts, unfunded wars, unfunded expansions to medicare., unfunded record earmarks.

& then you wonder why there is increasing debt?

2011 FY Budget Deficit $1.6 Trillion
2012 FY budget deficit $1.3 trillion
2013 FY budget est.$1.1 trillion
You have a serious comprehension problem, are you dyslexic by chance? Or just a liar?
1) Budget deficits? Really. Both wars were run off budget under Bush. Not so under Obama.

2) The recession started 4th quarter of 2007. List the legislation the Democrats passed & Bush signed that took us from the rosy Bush economy to the worst recession in 80 years.

The Anti-Romney
By W. James Antle III

The 2016 Republican presidential field is likely to be more serious than this year’s crop. Ryan, Chris Christie, Rand Paul, and perhaps even Jeb Bush are among a few names that will be floated over the next four years. For Jindal to have a chance, he must stand out in this group.

In the early going, Jindal has set out to do so as the anti-Romney.“We’ve got to make sure that we are not the party of big business, big banks, big Wall Street bailouts, big corporate loopholes, big anything,” Jindal told Politico.“We cannot be, we must not be, the party that simply protects the rich so they get to keep their toys.”

Over the longer term, Jindal can seek to occupy a middle ground between an unprincipled Republican establishment and conservative insurgents whose well-publicized gaffes have cost Republicans multiple Senate seats during the last two elections: neither Tommy Thompson nor Todd Akin, Mike Castle nor Christine O’Donnell.

“We’ve also had enough of this dumbed-down conservatism,” Jindal recently said.“We need to stop being simplistic, we need to trust the intelligence of the American people and we need to stop insulting the intelligence of the voters.”

Welcome words. Only time will tell whether Jindal can deliver on their promise.

Your opinion makes a great sucking sound, ImaginaryDave. Tone it down.
I get it.

According to you, Paul Ryan has no voting record and he never voted for those things?

That record is fact. Not opinion.

Well you know that First off its comforting to know that there are a few democrats that still like women.

That said Jill kelly and her sister are 2 smokin hot babes and these guys sure have better taste than Clinton did.

Looking at them it brings to mind that 2 heads are better than one......

Anyhow while this 4 star genital was busy texting his harem hundreds of American soldiers died he was supposed to be leading.

His leadership failed them, and the guy who was supposed to be in charge failed them, and imbeciles just put this ineffective leadership back in office.

When I say imbeciles I mean the Republican leadership as much as the fruity democrats.

I blame a clueless Republican party leadership. It isnt their appeal to a White Americans platform that hurt them, But rather its their save the starving rich stupidity that gutted them.
These morons figured they could trash Ron Paul voters and get away with it. Now all of America will pay the price for their arrogant stupidity.
They figured that they could wave the boogey man of Obama and that alone would be enough to swell their ranks with a mob carrying pitchforks to the White house dinner party.

These inept dorks thought that their core voters would vote for an east coast little rich boy who had an ivy league title and spends his day golfing with biff and the gang.
One Who picked 10 dual citizenship Israelis to snuggle up to Americas military secrets, and are strongly implicated in 911.
Now they drag up the dregs they sponsored instead of White people and figure they can become like communistically diverse democrats and still act out on the platform of saveing the starving rich,

Reince Preibus is an total asshole and should be fired immediately. Because of his John Mexicaining this election. There wasnt one word attacking Odonga on the illegal alien issue, not a peep on an issue 90% of America wants halted. Not A Peep because he panders to illegal aliens.

NOt one word that Obama does not have the credential and yes i do mean a birth certificate that isnt forged.

Not one word that Obama stole the cost of living increase twice on seniors and disabled right off the bat, not a stinking peep cause ole Romney and that goof he picked both secretly enjoy the concept and the voters knew it !Even now this Johnson nipple is after social security, once he saw Odonga get by with it.

he will never win an election he couldn't even deliver Wisconsin his home state. Wisconsin with a vice presidential candidate from Wisconsin, Wisconsin with a smashing republican victory only a few months earlier. What a Hopeless imbecile. This guy turned certain victory into the worst defeat in history.
You need to remove thee head from the hinder right now.

Majorities of Americans believe that President Obama and his fellow Democrats in Congress will sincerely work with the other party, a Gallup poll released Tuesday shows, while decidedly fewer hold similar confidence in Republicans.

According to the poll, 65 percent believe that Obama will make a "sincere effort" to work with the opposing party's leadership to reach a solution "acceptable to both parties." Fifty-seven percent believe that Congressional Democrats will make the same bipartisan appeal.

Americans are less certain, however, about the bipartisan capacity of the Congressional GOP. Less than half of respondents, 48 percent, said that Republicans on Capitol Hill will sincerely work with Democratic leaders to strike an agreement that's palatable to both sides.

Piyush Jindall can't even run a state properly in spite of all the federal dollars that have poured into Louisiana the state still lags behind the nation in just about every measurable category and particularly in K-12 education which Jindall helped voucherize.

Screw that flake!

The by 2015 desperate Repubs will most likely go with Jeb and another (R) governor, perhaps Christie and get their azzes stomped again by the party that looks forward rather than to the past.

It is not a deficit if there is no budget. They should be locked in Congress until the job is done, sandwiches can be sent in. And there are plenty of toilets.

Amen. Menial jobs do not translate into 'menial people' when performed. Those with the mindset which says they do, have likely never bent their backs to any task more physically demanding than tying their shoes.
