President Obama received 65,445,394 popular votes in the last election.
Glen Beck, the self proclaimed, "entertainer" I am not a journalist, was fired from Fox News.
My question to Obama's vote total would be, how many of those voters would have stuck by him if the unemployment numbers remained above 8%? There seems to be a theory out there that no president since WWII has been elected with an unemployment rate above 8%. I can't find an instance where it would apply so I'm not sure where that came from. FDR was elected three times when the unemployment rate was, often times above 20% during his presidency. If this potential scandal is true, it would give credence to Obama buying into this myth. It also appears as though there are many voters that subscribe to this myth as well though I don't know why. I certainly don't put it above the progressive Democratic party to cheat to steal an election. Obama's guidebook (Rules for Radicals) puts it like this on p29: " "The third rule of ethics of means and ends is that in war the end justifies almost any means...."

Doesn't seem as though some of your liberal counterparts see Beck's departure as a "firing" as you put it.

Two completely separate incidents. The Congressman from Florida, who needs to resign, is employed and works for the money he gets. Food stamp recipients, even if they work, are getting free money that has to come out of income's from hard working, mostly middle class, citizens. Many of those citizens, in all likelihood, really need that money for their own bills. So requesting that food stamp recipients live responsible lives is not asking too much. I also believe that our elected representatives should be expected to live clean responsible lives as well but I am not naïve enough to believe that all, or even most, do.
Barney doesn't work and receives money, are you insinuating that he is getting money unfairly? I have read the constitution, there is nothing in there that says you have to work. We are entitled to be supported regardless of how lazy we are. The welfare system has worked well in Greece and France why should it not work here? If there were more people like Barney, then there would be, well there would be, well there would be Barney. I haven't really thought about that, I guess we have enough Barney.

A Fox News spokesperson responded :“Glenn Beck wasn’t trying to save his soul, he was trying to save his ass. Advertisers fled his show and even Glenn knows what that means in our industry. Yet, we still tried to give him a soft landing. Guess no good deed goes unpunished.”

As I have said countless times, don't fully trust anything you see on a website. That goes for The Blaze, NY Times, or whatever site you want to pick. It's why I have said on countless occasions, TIFWIW. That still stands. But when liberals bash liberals then one must give that article another look because liberals are fiercely loyal to each other. That's how such a small number of people can do so much damage to so many.

Here's the deal. You calling out people like Beck, Hannity, Rush, Bush 1, Bush 2, Republicans, or whoever is a mute point because they have either no power to change anything whatsoever or they have limited power. At best, they only occupy 1/435th of 1/3 of the government controlled by Republicans or they are 1/100th of the 1/3 of government that they don't control and can't do anything unless the Democrats allow them to. Now, my criticism of Obama who is 1/1 of the 1/3 of government that Democrats control and can do whatever he wants with that 1/3 of government. Not only that but 1/3 of the rest of the government is only a yes man to the President's decisions. For instance, the President has altered Obamacare post passage of the law by offering exemptions and giving extensions and has he been stopped? Nope. Is that even legal? My bet is no. Now lets flip the script. If any of the people who you demonize said tomorrow, "From this point forward, Obamacare will be thrown in the trash and we will go back to the old system", what's the chance that would happen? I'll tell you 0%. So really, when you criticize tv and radio personalities or former presidents, you are comparing apples to rocks. When you criticize current Republican and Conservative lawmakers you are comparing apples to oranges. I know it makes you feel good to do so but all it does is make you feel better about a complete failure of progressive ideology that is now on display for the whole world, and more importantly, American voters to see. Why don't you try defending Obama instead of criticizing his opposition? I know why, because Obama is not defendable.

Watching progressive socialistic liberals talk is just sickening. I'm watching Harry Reid speak on the floor of the Senate. He just called the Republicans out using scripture found in Numbers that says we are to honor our word and not lie about things we promise. He's talking about the Republicans promising to work in a bipartisan manner back during the November elections. He is saying they broke their word. Has any party lied more than the Democrats? Nope. Benghazi, Solyndra, Obamacare, Fast and Furious, manipulation of unemployment numbers, election manipulation, the Obamacare website, blaming Republicans and Conservatives for the failed rollout of Obamacare and the website, and the list goes on and on. Some of these could possibly be impeachable offenses? I would say yes. The problem with Reid is that he currently has the rubber stamp of approval from the President thus making his 1/3 of the government have the power of 2/3 of the government. Before people like Barney jump out and say things like "what about Bush 1 or Bush 2, or Reagan is that they can't affect current policy which is where we are right now. If they criticize current Congressmen, they are criticizing individuals that really have no power because they can't get their opinion to represent 2/3 of the government. But lets not think that Barney and others like him won't try.

It tells me that rather than feel sorry for myself, about half of us needs to get off our butts and go to work. Really Barney, don't you ever get tired of being the victim? I will be the first to agree that if you had to make your own way in life you would probably starve to death, but wouldn't it be nice if you tried to stand on your own two feet and actually try to accomplish something.

First off, we are a Constitutional Republic, not a Democracy.
The top 10% also pay 71% of all federal income taxes. That means that the remaining 57.5% of the income earned in America only has to pay 29% of the taxes. It doesn't get any more fair than that. If there is any redistribution that needs to happen, it's tax redistribution. My goodness, how much more greedy are progressive Democrats going to be? You guys are bottomless pits that can't be filled. Where does it end?

Oh the hypocrisy explains perfectly what Harry Reid just did.

http://news.yahoo.com/filibuster-reaction-har...

Mark my words, this move will gut the political process in national politics. What is sold as something that only pertains to court nominees will soon become a common practice used by both parties on bills that are unpopular with the minority party. This will come back to bite the Democrats and when it does, they are going to cry foul.

Sean Hannity once supported filibuster reform. Now he is calling it “One of the most lawless power grabs” in U.S. history.

Mitch McConnell, who so opposed the nuclear option, was actually for a simple up-or-down vote on judicial nominees – in 2005, when George W. Bush was president.

“Twelve Republicans Who Broke Their Pledge to Oppose Judicial Filibusters”

1. Mitch McConnell (R-KY)
2. John Cornyn (R-TX)

5. Chuck Grassler (R-IA)
6. Saxby Chambliss (R-GA)

Gay teen activist honored by Obama charged with sex crimes against a 14-yr-old boy
Thu Nov 21

PHOENIX, November 20, 2013 ( LifeSiteNews.com )– An openly homosexual teenager, who was given a position as an “adviser” to Phoenix Mayor Greg Stanton and honored by President Barack Obama at a White House “gay pride” dinner, has been indicted on more than a dozen counts of sexual misconduct with a minor under the age of 15.

Caleb Laieski, now 18, was 17 at the time of the alleged abuse. His alleged victim, a close friend he met on TrevorSpace (a social media site for children and young adults aged 13-24 who have an interest in homosexuality), was only 14 at the time. The younger boy said the sex was consensual, but that he felt “pressured” to participate. However, Arizona law says no one younger than 15 is capable of giving consent.

In an unusual twist, Laieski is also considered a victim in the case, since at least some of the charges stem from a three-way sexual encounter the boys had with 43-year-old Chris Wilson, an openly homosexual Phoenix police officer who was arrested more than a year ago and is now in jail awaiting trial for his role in the abuse of both children. Although Laieski was a minor at the time, his participation in sex acts with the younger boy violate state law, which says it is a crime for older minors to have sexual contact with children under the age of 15.

Laieski rose to national prominence after he and a 35-year-old friend, Casey Cameron, sent e-mails to 5,000 Arizona schools in 2011 demanding special protections for gay students and threatening legal action if they failed to bring their policies in line with his demands. The teen then dropped out of high school, got his GED, and traveled to Washington, D.C., to lobby for the Student Non-Discrimination Act.

In 2012, Laieski was given a position in Mayor Stanton’s office as a “youth and diversity liaison,” advising the mayor on matters of policy having to do with youth, particularly gay youth. He was an “advocate on loan,” meaning his salary was funded by an outside group, called “One in Ten.”

According to police records, part of his job was to represent the mayor’s office at local homosexual protests, which is how he got to know Wilson, who was usually assigned as the officer in charge of policing such events.

Wilson met the two boys while serving on the Phoenix Police Department’s Community Response Squad as a liaison officer to the homosexual community in 2012. At the time of Wilson’s arrest, he had known Laieski for three years, but had only recently met the younger boy, when all three attended an event at the Phoenix Arts Center.

The alleged sex between the three occurred late in 2012 at Laieski’s apartment, where the 14-year-old was also staying.(Laieski told investigators that the younger boy’s mother wanted them to “be together as a couple” and would often drop her son off for “weeks at a time” at his apartment, where he lived alone.) After a dinner at Chili’s restaurant during which the 14-year-old reportedly made aggressive sexual overtures toward Wilson, Wilson drove the boys back to Laieski’s apartment and went inside with them. Eventually, the three ended up in bed together.

Initially, investigators saw Laieski only as a victim in the case, but police records show that Laieski actively pressured his young friend not to tell anyone about the abuse in order to protect his rising star from being tarnished, even after the younger boy became suicidal. In transcripts taken from police records, it seems clear Laieski understood their encounter with Wilson was wrong and could get him in trouble. When the younger boy begged Laieski to go with him to the police, Laieski told him no. He said he was negotiating with Department of Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius over a possible White House job, and he worried that if anyone found out he’d been involved in a crime, he’d lose the opportunity.
