Republicans Fear Clinton in 2016

HOLLYWOOD — Republican leaders plotted their party’s political comeback on Thursday with plans to court minority voters and modernize their political operations. But some wondered if one person could make it all for naught: Hillary Clinton.

As attendees of the Republican National Committee’s spring meeting debated party rules and a refurbished GOP brand capable of winning back the White House, more than two dozen operatives and officials expressed worry that none of their party’s potential 2016 candidates can take her down.

One early primary state RNC member put it simply:“If she gets in, we’re toast.”

“We’re hoping she doesn’t run, because if she does, she’ll win,” said the same operative.

Overhearing discussions about Clinton in the hallway outside the RNC meeting, Jorge Landivar, a Ron Paul-backing delegate to the 2012 Republican convention from Texas, chimed in:“All the polls say she will destroy anyone that we put up — it’s [f---ng] terrifying.” National polling from Quinnipiac University finds that Clinton, the most popular national political figure, would defeat New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie 45 – 37 percent; Florida Sen. Marco Rubio 50 – 34 percent and Rep. Paul Ryan 50 – 38 percent.

Ron Kaufman, the RNC committeeman from Massachusetts and a senior Romney campaign advisor, acknowledged that Clinton looks as powerful as a sitting president.

One state chair described the GOP’s annual meeting as less about winning and more about fighting to remain a credible alternative to the Democratic Party.“We can’t even think about winning until we stop losing voters every cycle,” he said.

And one former Romney aide here warned that grassroots activists pushing for an even more conservative GOP identity could seal the party’s fate:“If we listen to some of the people here and come back with a hardline conservative in 2016, she’ll wipe the floor with us.”

(Yes, she will. lol)

Remember Dirty Harry Reid's big tax lie about Romney that he had to eat crow about? Everything McConnell and his staff talked about concerning stinky pits Judd when they were illegally recorded by the democrats was true. Everything they said old nasty Assley had already wrote a book about and made money off of and had stated those things to Entertainment Tonight and other has-been shows. People are pissed because of what was said but they didn't get pissed when Assley stated the same things herself in public. Wonder who their next Hollywood has-been is gonna be to run against Mitch since the pit stain Judd woman didn't work out so well? lmao Boy those democrats sure are scared to death that Mitch will become Senate majority leader and cut their purse strings and corrupt power.
The dems even made racist remarks against McConnell's wife. Where's the Rev's Jackson and Sharpton when the racist allegations are true for once? No where to be found. Typical democrat hypocrites!

Red States Are Welfare States

For the last several weeks—make that months—I have been reading and listening to right-wing ideologs criticize President Obama’s plans to raise taxes on the wealthy. Notice, I correctly inserted the word wealthy? Somehow, that important word seems to be missing in many right-wing accounts of Mr. Obama’s plan. So, tonight, I have reached my limit! I can stand your ridiculous whining and rants no more. It’s time to interject a little thing the rest of us call reality into this discussion.

When it comes to taxes the key words are not Republican or Democrat nor are they red or blue. No, the key words when it comes to the collection and dispersal of federal taxes are donor and donee. As in donor states (those that pay more in taxes than they receive), and donee states (those who get more in federal aid than they pay) to the federal government).

In the 2008 election John McCain’s anti- tax, smaller government, pro business policies resonated with the voters of 21 states. If voters in 20 of those states were aware of the fact that they are largely dependant on the federal government—and the taxes it collects—their votes may have been different.

In the 2008 election Barack Obama won 29 states. Incredibly the voters in 16 of the 17 states that pay more to the federal government than they receive voted for Obama and his supposed big-spending, high-taxes, socialist agenda. If you include Rhode Island which amazingly got as much money as it paid Obama won 17 of the 18 states that are not a net drain on the federal government.

So, the next time all you angry right-wing ideologs start railing against what you perceive to be Obama’s socialist agenda, please remember that it is you who are largely dependent on it. It is you who collect the majority of the money that is paid out through the entitlement system you are crazy enough to want to destroy. It is you whose wages are so repressed by the corporate masters whose asses you kiss on a daily basis that could not survive without the kindness of the liberal elites who reside in the donor states. Ironically, the welfare states of this nation are its red ones.

And there’s something else to ponder.

Here’s a link to the list of donor and donee states.

Again, it is not what the Republicans would like you to think.

Bush Was a Total Disaster ... Obama Is WORSE
Submitted on 02/14/2013 18:08 -0400

More Redistribution of Wealth to the Richest

Sure, Bush made the rich richer.

But Obama has actually redistributed wealth from the middle class to the very richest more than Bush.

Specifically, income inequality has increased more under Obama than under Bush.
.
.
.

More Trampling of Civil Liberties

The Hill reports:

A majority of voters believe President Obama has been no better than his immediate predecessor, President George W. Bush, when it comes to balancing national security with the protection of civil liberties, according to a new poll for The Hill.

Thirty-seven percent of voters argue that Obama has been worse than Bush while 15 percent say he has been “about the same.”

***

The results cannot be fully explained as party line responses. More than one in five self-identified Democrats, 21 percent, assert that the Obama administration has not improved upon Bush’s record. So do 23 percent of liberals.

Your articles refer to the amount of federal money given to the states compared to the amount of taxes the feds receive in return. This has more to do with income and does not reflect the actual receipt of welfare entitlements.

Mitch McConnell's Wife Slams Progress Kentucky in First TV Ad

In the first TV ad of the 2014 Kentucky Senate race, Republican Mitch McConnell's wife jabs a liberal super PAC for attacking her ethnicity.
As WFPL reported last month, Progress Kentucky sent out a number of messages via Twitter attacking former Secretary of Labor Elaine Chao, with a focus on her race.

The national backlash forced the group to eventually apologize, and in the 30-second spot Chao says that represents the overall tone of the campaign.

"You've seen the ads attacking my husband. As Mitch McConnell's wife, I have come to expect them," Chao says in the ad. "Now, far left special interests are also attacking my ethnicity, even attacking Mitch's patriotism because he's married to me. That's how low some people will stoop."
Using President Obama as a backdrop, Chao also says McConnell's leadership has helped protect Kentucky from "bad ideas" in Washington. It is unclear what specific legislation or measure the ad is referring to, but given the president's unpopularity in the state it may not matter.

Observers argue that Team Mitch putting out an ad a year and a half before Election Day represents weakness, but the McConnell campaign believes the incumbent is being besieged by negative attacks from the left and must respond.

"Mitch McConnell is such a tremendous champion for Kentucky, and goes to bat for the Commonwealth every day," says McConnell campaign manager Jesse Benton. "Liberal special interest group across country are sure to try every dirty trick in the book to tear him down, but our campaign will fight as hard as Mitch fights for us and make sure we spread his positive message to every voter in the State."

UPDATE:
In response to the ad, the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee says McConnell is the most vulnerable and least popular incumbent in the country.

"Mitch McConnell is known as the meanest, most negative campaigner in all of Washington, and Kentuckians and all Americans are sick and tired of his nasty, partisan brand of politics," says DSCC spokesman Matt Canter. "No wonder he is the least popular incumbent senator in the entire country. We strongly disagree with the tweet that Mitch McConnell is referencing in his new ad, but let's be honest: Mitch McConnell is not a victim.

In fact, he is the reason for Washington's dysfunction."

http://www.wfpl.org/post/mitch-mcconnells-wif...

In a Feb. 14 Twitter message, Progress says: "This woman has the ear of (Sen. McConnell)—she's his wife. May explain why your job moved to China!"

No truer words than that UPDATE above.

In his fifth term now, McConnell has an approval rating in Kentucky of 36 percent. Silent but sullen, most of his own party doesn't really like him. The state's Democrats, who still control the governorship and the lower house, positively despise the man.

I had to remove part of your post in order to respond.
Per CNBC, the 15 highest welfare states are listed below. Only two are red states.
That is what you repukes do best, remove what you don't want to believe. It's 2013 people. These are the ones you left and I have added a 2013 as well. Red states are welfare states.

Red States Are The Real Welfare States
http://www.addictinginfo.org/2012/09/02/red-s ...

Which states receive the lion’s share of welfare?

Again, it is not what the Republicans would like you to think. In fact, if you map the states that receive the most welfare on the map, it look remarkably similar to the 2008 presidential electoral map. The Red States receive far more welfare than they pay into the system. Who flips the bill? Blue states.

Why are "red states" the federal "welfare states"??
You can ask your mommy a lot of questions, including big questions like this one.

Mommy probably knows the answer to this one, or at least part of the answer….

Probably you do too….

For example, Mississippi is one of the states that sucks up far more federal spending per capita than it pays in federal taxes – and that's big time, Mississippians get almost $3 worth of federal spending and benefits for every dollar they pay in personal and corporate federal taxes. Only two states (New Mexico and Alaska) get more.

De facto, in the simplest terms of pocketbook politics, Mississippians actually love the federal government. In this simplistic view, they should be loving President Obama down in Mississippi.

I wonder why 90% of white voters in Mississippi went for the other guy last November?

Be sure and check out the cartoon in this 2013 article. PRICELESS

In his fifth term now, McConnell has an approval rating in Kentucky of 36 percent. Silent but sullen, most of his own party doesn't really like him. The state's Democrats, who still control the governorship and the lower house, positively despise the man.

DITCH MITCH and the party of no/teabaggers!!

I agree Uncle Tab, every search I ran showed RED states are the welfare states. Don't surprise me. They talk about sucking on the gov't tit,(as they put it, not me) and they are the guilty ones. All the while the blue states are footing the bill. Hyprocritic repukes at their best once again.

Republicans Eating Their Own: Angry tea party activists tell donors to shun “inept” Karl Rove

Back in January I wrote about the terrible, horrible, no good, very bad GOP dissension-slash-implosion. Unfortunately for them, things have only gone downhill from there. Karl Rove has failed in the advice department recently, like when he told the GOP, essentially, just don’t *sound* intolerant, just pretend to be inclusive and nobody will be the wiser.

Wrongy McWrongerson strikes again.

Then Bush’s Brain decided to push for more “electable”(read: not totally and utterly extreme times infinity) candidates who he thought could win Republican primaries. Guess who didn’t like that. Hint: It rhymes with Schmea Schmarty and schmonservatives.

So a few of them wrote a letter. They wrote a letter that went to people with a lot of money. People with a lot of money who donate to Republican candidates and causes. And they did that because they don’t like feeling betrayed by one of their own.
