Republican Myth Debunked: U.S. Deficit Actually Falls Below $1 Trillion for First Time Since 2008

While Republicans love to paint President Obama as someone who’s done nothing but spend, spend, spend—reality tells a different story.

Let’s get a few facts out of the way. Yes, we’ve spent a lot of money since 2008. Yes, we’re still currently running budget deficits. Yes, we still need to get spending under control. And yes, there’s still a lot of work to be done.

But this right-wing myth that President Obama has been some kind of “Spender in Chief” is completely absurd.

In 2008, our deficit was $458.6 billion. For 2013, it will be $680.3 billion. Is that still a lot of money? Absolutely. But it’s still down from 2012 when our deficit was $1.09 trillion, and it’s headed back towards the levels we had before the economic crash.

And let’s not forget that the 2009 budget, which President Obama gets saddled with, was actually passed by George W. Bush. How large was that deficit?$1.4 trillion. So, what does that mean exactly? That President Obama has cut deficits by more than half since he became president.
Oh, and for 2013, revenue was up 13.3 percent — which is attributed to an economy that continues to grow, more jobs being created and President Obama’s tax hikes on the richest Americans. So much for “tax hikes killing job creation.”

So while Republicans continue to paint President Obama as some “socialist” who does nothing but advocate massive government spending, reality tells a very different tale. Then again, it’s been decades since the Republican party actually cared about “facts” or “reality.”

They cling to the 2008 numbers that are still below what 2013 is at, but fail to embrace the fact that 2009′s numbers, while tagged to President Obama, were passed by George W. Bush. So the fact is, spending is down under President Obama.

In fact, as many already know, deficits are shrinking at their fastest pace since World War II.
But these realities don’t stop Republicans from pushing this false pretense that President Obama has been this giant spender, hurling money at anything and everything because that’s all he knows how to do.

And let’s also not forget President Obama inherited a train wreck of an economy. Not only did he inherit that mess, he came into office right in the middle of it. We had to spend a massive amount of money to avoid letting our country slip into another Great Depression.

It still amuses me that Republicans seem to only be “fiscally conservative” once their party no longer controls the White House. For eight years under George W. Bush, Republicans had near full control over our government, and did nothing more than wreck a balanced budget, run up giant deficits and double our national debt.

But now they want to pretend to act appalled at spending?

I’ll just leave them to their rhetoric. Because while they’ll continue to push the outright lie that Obama has been a president who simply throws money at everything, reality is on the side of those who know that he’s drastically reduced our deficits from the 2009 levels passed during George W. Bush’s last year in office.

Far-Right Conservative Groups Now Admitting That They Want to Hijack GOP for Radical Agenda

For a while now most liberals have been well aware of the fact that the tea party is nothing more than a tool used by far-right conservative groups to manipulate the Republican party, and by result, our government. Though at first the tea party tried to masquerade as some “grassroots” movement of ordinary Americans sick and tired of the “business as usual” politics in Washington, their true intentions became clear with every rally they held and candidate they endorsed.

The tea party was a carefully crafted PR stunt by the Republican party to “rebuild” themselves after eight years of George W. Bush nearly destroyed their entire party—and our country. It was also a group that racism flocked towards in response to the United States electing its first black president.

After some time, the tea party exposed itself as nothing more than a representative of the most far-right reaching “values” of the Republican party. A group that was driven by fear, paranoia, hatred, ignorance and bigotry.

But at its core, it was nothing more than a group meant to manipulate millions of Americans into support the ideology of a few radically right conservative groups like FreedomWorks, the Club For Growth and Heritage Action for America.

However, for the most part, these groups stayed in the shadows as the tea party continued to claim that it was still a grassroots movement of Americans pushing for a return to “traditional American values.”

Well, they are in the shadows no longer. Following the attention the government shutdown put on the GOP, and even more so Texas Senator Ted Cruz (a huge tea party favorite), it appears these groups are now embracing the limelight and admitting they fully intend to hijack the GOP to push their more radical ideologies.

Now these groups are publicly threatening current Republicans who stand in their way of completely radicalizing the Republican party.

Essentially, the only thing a current Republican needs to do is compromise and work with President Obama to be considered a target by these groups.
In fact, the Club For Growth has launched a website titled ”Primary My Congressman.”

If you visit their page, you’ll see a picture of a rhino in the upper left hand corner. Why a rhino? Well, R.I.N.O stands for Republican In Name Only, alluding to the fact that they feel these particular Republicans who they’ll be trying to “primary” aren’t real Republicans.

You know, kind of like a cult.”Either you’re with us, or against us.” That’s basically the mindset of these groups.

But just how radical are these groups? Karl Rove is actually someone who often opposes many of their tactics. That is how bad it’s getting. The GOP is shifting so far right that the mastermind behind some of the more radical conservative movements of the last few decades is seen by these groups as “too moderate.”

Because let’s not forget, the healthcare mandate was actually a Republican idea not too long ago. Now it’s seen as “radical liberal socialism” taking over the country.

But what it really breaks down to is this: Any Republican who tries to work with President Obama to actually help move our country forward, and build our economy back up, does so at the risk of being shamed and called out by members of their own party.

That’s basically the only parameter these radical right-wing groups are using to determine who’s a “real Republican” and who’s not.

In the past, these groups mostly kept their hands clean with their intention to push the Republican party to the far-right stretches of conservatism — they’re now publicly admitting that’s exactly what they’re trying to do.

And if any current Republican gets in their way, or won’t go along with that plan, they have no problem trying to “take them out” as well.

Because nothing says “freedom” and “good Christian values”(you know, what Republicans claim they represent) quite like blackmailing politicians to do what you want, otherwise you’ll unleash millions of dollars attacking them in an effort to ruin their political careers.

Teabagger crazy eyes is a LOSER..hahaha

Michele Bachmann Actually Admitted What Most of Us Have Known for a While:“God, I’m a Loser”

Heading into the 2012 Republican presidential primary, Michele Bachmann had quite a lot of momentum. Many people might forget this, as she wasn’t in the race very long. However, leading up to the actual primary debates she was a huge tea party darling and, believe it or not, was the GOP front-runner.

In fact, in August 2011 she won the Iowa straw poll for presidential candidates. Fast forward just a few months to January 2012 and she received just five percent of the vote in the Iowa primary.

Well, revelations coming out in a new book titled “Double Down” reveal that Michele Bachmann took the Iowa results quite hard:

“Sitting in her campaign bus, in the same seat where she cried with joy in August, she now sobbed over her drubbing.“God, I’m a loser,” Bachmann said.“God, I turn people off.” With two debates ahead in New Hampshire, some of her advisers thought she should consider staying in the race. Bachmann wanted no part of it. Let’s draft a withdrawal speech for tomorrow, she said.”

Of course, she dropped out of the race the day after the Iowa caucuses.

This is another one of those extremely rare instances you’ll actually see me agree with Michele Bachmann on anything. I agree, she is a loser and she does turn people off. That’s exactly what happened between August and January. The more people got to know her, the more national attention she received, the more people realized what a whack job she really is.

A trend that has been pretty common for quite a few tea party candidates in national elections.

Heck, how else do you figure the Republican party ended up with Mitt Romney as their candidate in 2012? The rest of the candidates, mostly all tea party favorites, quickly fell out of national favor the moment the spotlight was placed upon them and their idiocy was put on full display.

But let’s not forget Michele Bachmann announced that “God” spoke to her and told her to run for president. Not that she was inspired by God or her faith — no,“God” actually spoke to her through prayer and told her to run for president.

Well, I guess “God” forgot to tell Ms. Bachmann about her humiliating defeat she’d experience in Iowa. If “God” told her to run, wouldn’t her dropping out at the first sign of adversity showcase her lack of faith?

I mean, if I thought God actually told me to do something — as in my orders were given to me directly from the one and only God — the last thing I’d do is quit.

Except, that’s exactly what she did.

Mitch McConnell Waging Two-Front War in Kentucky Senate Race

Senate Minority Leader could be brought down in death of 1,000 cuts

Mitch McConnell is one of the wiliest, savviest politicians in America, nearly anyone will tell you. Thirty years ago, the Senate Minority Leader helped rejuvenate the Republican Party in Kentucky and though it still has more registered Democrats than Republicans, his dominance as the state's longest serving senator has been complete.

But now, running for his sixth term, McConnell faces war on two fronts at a time when Washington politicians, particularly Republicans, are viewed in a record unfavorable light by the American public.

In one corner, McConnell is competing with a somewhat formidable primary opponent in businessman Matt Bevin, who recently won the nod from national conservative groups like the Madison Project and the Senate Conservatives Fund. The groups are taste-testers for the tea party and can provide much-needed outside funding for Bevin, who has struggled to fundraise against McConnell, while at the same time he has dumped at least $600,000 of his own money into his campaign so far.

"Obviously enough people nationwide on the right are mobilizing against McConnell that it's starting to look as though [Bevin's] going to be able to get his message out there and that's huge," says Stephen Voss, a political science professor at the University of Kentucky. "But insofar as he forces McConnell to shore up his right flank, that certainly hinders the Senate Minority Leader as he goes into the general election against a Democratic candidate who is polling fairly well."

That candidate is Alison Lundergan Grimes, who poses the largest threat to McConnell's re-election, from the opposite corner of Bevin. Grimes' father was a former Kentucky Democratic Party chairman and she recently won a statewide election to become the Kentucky secretary of state.
Grimes has rocketed to the top of the national Democratic stage, as the candidate who could potentially knock off the top Senate Republican.

Top Democratic donors nationwide are flocking to give, including some high profile names from Hollywood. According to The Associated Press, DreamWorks Animation CEO Jeffrey Katzenberg hosted a September fundraiser for Grimes, garnering contributions from the likes of Leonardo DiCaprio, Ben Affleck, Nicholas Cage, Ted Danson and Ben Stiller. The Hollywood connection is ironic, considering Grimes jumped into the race only after actress Ashley Judd took a pass on running.

"I know she's going to get a lot of national Democratic money, but that to me is almost as much a liability in Kentucky as an asset because when you get outside the urban areas, they don't take to the Hollywood stuff," says John David Dyche, a GOP analyst and McConnell biographer.

Grimes, though, has been quick to go on the attack against McConnell. Seeking to tie him tightly to the unpopular, Republican-led 16-day government shutdown, her campaign dubbed him "Senator Gridlock." And when he won praise for providing a key role in resolving the situation, she launched a web ad pillorying him for his supposed duplicity.

"Mitch McConnell can't light the house on fire, then claim credit for putting it out," says the voice over.

"These are not people with an emotional identification with or a loyalty to the Republican Party," he says. "They are going for the candidate closer to them. They overwhelmingly re-elected a Democratic governor, the guy who is getting all this national news for rolling out probably the most successful Obamacare exchange. What complicates the Senate election is there are two games going on at once – you want the candidate closest to you, but you also care about the effect on national politics."

What's better than watching them eat their own is watching them RUN to the DEMS. PRICELESS

Another Republican Switches to Dems:‘No Room For Hate In Representation’

After raising almost $43,000 as a republican candidate for North Carolina third Congressional District, Jason Thigpen announced on October 31, 2013 that he is switching to the Democratic Party. In an open letter to voters, Thigpen explains his decision to distance himself from the republican party, saying that ‘hate has no home in representation.”

According to Thigpen’s profile page on Facebook he is a “combat-wounded and decorated former Army Sergeant.” His biography states that he “founded the Student Veterans Advocacy Group (SVAG), an organization dedicated to our nation’s service-members, Veterans, and their families.” His wife Tiffany is currently serving in the United States Marine Corps, and is stationed at Camp Lejuene, located in NC. The two have 4 children, ranging in age from the youngest, who is 9, to the oldest who is 14.

Thigpen asserts that his decision to switch parties was based in part on his own disgust with the element of extremism that runs through the republican party.“I simply cannot stand with a Party where its most extreme element promote hate and division amongst people.” He also cites the recent legislation passed by North Carolina’s GOP lawmakers, as a major factor in his decision.“I didn’t go to war to defend the liberties and freedoms of one Party, race, sex, or one income class of Americans. Whether white, black, Hispanic, Asian, man, woman, gay, lesbian, straight, rich, or poor – we fought together as equals, side-by-side for the benefit of every American in the same. So, to come home from serving our country and see North Carolina legislators using their super-majority status to gerrymander districts and pass a law to deliberately suppress and oppress the voting rights of Democrats but more specifically minorities and college students, is absolutely deplorable,” he says.

Aside from stating that the republican party has become a party of division and hate, in his letter, Thigpen also points to other recent legislation, which was passed by North Carolina’s radical right wing extremists.“This same group of spineless legislators piggybacked a motorcycle safety bill with legislation intentionally geared to shut down women’s health clinics because of their ‘right righteous’ beliefs on abortion, while then cutting funding to the programs which help feed and provide healthcare to the babies they invariably forced the same women to have. Sounds like the Christian thing to do, huh? These legislators, acting under the guise of the religious right and morality believe themselves to be the divine judge but according to the Bible, there is only one judge. They say they’re for a smaller government and individual rights while pushing legislation for more government intervention and regulation usurping our right to choose for ourselves.”

According to Thigpen, the final straw for him was the GOP government shut down, which lasted more than two weeks, and cost the country more than $24 million in losses.“The government shutdown was simply the straw that broke the camels back. I guess being an American just isn’t good enough anymore and I refuse to be part of an extremist movement in the GOP that only appears to thrive on fear and hate mongering of anyone and everyone who doesn’t walk their line.”

While there is a growing number of people who agree with his portrayal of the republican party as a racist, sexist group of hate mongering, fear mongering control freaks, it remains to be seen whether a former republican turned democrat can gather the support of voters, regardless of the party. As much as democrats may agree with him on social policy, some of his other statements should serve as a warning to democrats considering voting for him.

On his facebook page, he continues to promote the myth that government spending is out of control, writes that deficits and debt are rising.“Government deficits and an increasing national debt have been emblematic of our Congress and White House. Our economic standing as a leading world country is in peril and so is the future wellbeing of our children and grandchildren. The federal government must reduce spending, work to balance its budget and reduce the national debt.”

Furthermore, Thigpen says that “Government does not create jobs. Businesses, especially small businesses, create jobs. Economic growth can only be achieved by reducing the tax burden on businesses and individuals, reigning in out-of-control federal spending, and support policies promoting innovation and entrepreneurship.”

One thing the democratic party does not need is another democrat in name only. One who claims to stand with the party and the ideas it represents, but who votes against those ideals at every turn.

The sentiments in Thigpen’s letter are appreciated, yet there are a number of reasons that voters should use caution before deciding to vote for this candidate. The popularity of the republican party has reached an all-time low in recent weeks, and there’s strong evidence suggesting that dems could retake the House in 2014. Is this a candidate who is hoping to distance from the republican party because he no longer agrees with them, or because he doesn’t want to be sunk along with them?

A War on the Poor

John Kasich, the Republican governor of Ohio, has done some surprising things lately. First, he did an end run around his state’s Legislature — controlled by his own party — to proceed with the federally funded expansion of Medicaid that is an important piece of Obamacare. Then, defending his action, he let loose on his political allies, declaring,“I’m concerned about the fact there seems to be a war on the poor. That, if you’re poor, somehow you’re shiftless and lazy.”

Obviously Mr. Kasich isn’t the first to make this observation. But the fact that it’s coming from a Republican in good standing (although maybe not anymore), indeed someone who used to be known as a conservative firebrand, is telling. Republican hostility toward the poor and unfortunate has now reached such a fever pitch that the party doesn’t really stand for anything else — and only willfully blind observers can fail to see that reality.

The big question is why. But, first, let’s talk a bit more about what’s eating the right.

I still sometimes see pundits claiming that the Tea Party movement is basically driven by concerns about budget deficits. That’s delusional. Read the founding rant by Rick Santelli of CNBC: There’s nary a mention of deficits. Instead, it’s a tirade against the possibility that the government might help “losers” avoid foreclosure. Or read transcripts from Rush Limbaugh or other right-wing talk radio hosts. There’s not much about fiscal responsibility, but there’s a lot about how the government is rewarding the lazy and undeserving.

Republicans in leadership positions try to modulate their language a bit, but it’s a matter more of tone than substance. They’re still clearly passionate about making sure that the poor and unlucky get as little help as possible, that — as Representative Paul Ryan, the chairman of the House Budget Committee, put it — the safety net is becoming “a hammock that lulls able-bodied people to lives of dependency and complacency.” And Mr. Ryan’s budget proposals involve savage cuts in safety-net programs such as food stamps and Medicaid.

All of this hostility to the poor has culminated in the truly astonishing refusal of many states to participate in the Medicaid expansion. Bear in mind that the federal government would pay for this expansion, and that the money thus spent would benefit hospitals and the local economy as well as the direct recipients. But a majority of Republican-controlled state governments are, it turns out, willing to pay a large economic and fiscal price in order to ensure that aid doesn’t reach the poor.

The thing is, it wasn’t always this way. Go back for a moment to 1936, when Alf Landon received the Republican nomination for president. In many ways, Landon’s acceptance speech previewed themes taken up by modern conservatives. He lamented the incompleteness of economic recovery and the persistence of high unemployment, and he attributed the economy’s lingering weakness to excessive government intervention and the uncertainty he claimed it created.

But he also said this:“Out of this Depression has come, not only the problem of recovery but also the equally grave problem of caring for the unemployed until recovery is attained. Their relief at all times is a matter of plain duty. We of our Party pledge that this obligation will never be neglected.”

Can you imagine a modern Republican nominee saying such a thing? Not in a party committed to the view that unemployed workers have it too easy, that they’re so coddled by unemployment insurance and food stamps that they have no incentive to go out there and get a job.

So what’s this all about? One reason, the sociologist Daniel Little suggested in a recent essay, is market ideology: If the market is always right, then people who end up poor must deserve to be poor. I’d add that some leading Republicans are, in their minds, acting out adolescent libertarian fantasies.“It’s as if we’re living in an Ayn Rand novel right now,” declared Paul Ryan in 2009.

But there’s also, as Mr. Little says, the stain that won’t go away: race.

In a much-cited recent memo, Democracy Corps, a Democratic-leaning public opinion research organization, reported on the results of focus groups held with members of various Republican factions. They found the Republican base “very conscious of being white in a country that is increasingly minority”— and seeing the social safety net both as something that helps Those People, not people like themselves, and binds the rising nonwhite population to the Democratic Party. And, yes, the Medicaid expansion many states are rejecting would disproportionately have helped poor blacks.

So there is indeed a war on the poor, coinciding with and deepening the pain from a troubled economy. And that war is now the central, defining issue of American politics.

Lawrence O’Donnell is one of the only ones who tells it like it is. I especially like the fact that he never interjects his opinion, only gets to the truth! His guests are always unbiased and only state facts is another quality of his show, and all shows on msnbc like Rachael Maddow.

The republicans will likely never win another election as they are being found out for what they are. Racist, greedy, polluting, thieving, manipulating, abusing, slaving, criminals and that's just the tip of the iceberg.

The republicans will likely never win another election as they are being found out for what they are. Racist, greedy, polluting, thieving, manipulating, abusing, slaving, criminals and that's just the tip of the iceberg.
Democrats are winners!!!!!!!

I haven't watch a whole lot of his program, but I did see him rip that idiot weiner a new one on his show..."What is wrong with you?" haha

You have described those teabagger CONS perfectly and are right, I believe they won't be winning any elections anytime soon after the shutdown cost us 24 billion dollars and they constantly feed the corporations and starve the people.

They are a great recruiting tool for bringing in more DEM votes. Everyday they prove what is wrong with this country.

Lawrence O'Donnell, Glenn Beck Might Play Cop Partners In Movie
Penn Jillette appeared on Tuesday's "Last Word," where he announced his upcoming horror movie "Director's Cut." He said that two of the actors had already been cast: O'Donnell and Glenn Beck. Jillette, who is crowdfunding the movie, explained online:
I have gotten a tentative okay from BOTH Glenn and Lawrence to be in 'Director’s Cut.' They have both agreed to appear AND ACT in 'Director’s Cut.' Yeah, you’ve seen them in movies before, but it’s always playing themselves or generic newscasters. In our movie (and we’re all making this together), they will be playing police officers discussing their 'good cop/bad cop' strategy. Lawrence and Glenn have never met before but they will meet in person on the set of 'Director’s Cut.'"

White House, lawmakers reject clemency for Snowden

In a one-page typed letter, Edward Snowden asks for clemency for charges over allegedly leaking classified information about the NSA to the news media.

WASHINGTON — The White House and the leaders of the intelligence committee in Congress are rejecting National Security Agency-contractor Edward Snowden's plea for clemency.

"Mr. Snowden violated U.S. law," White House adviser Dan Pfeiffer said about the former systems-analyst-turned-fugitiv e who has temporary asylum in Russia.

"He should return to the U.S. and face justice," Pfeiffer said, adding when pressed that no offers for clemency were being discussed.

Related: Germany wants spying talks with Edward Snowden

Snowden made the plea in a letter given to a German politician and released Friday. In his one-page typed letter, he asks for clemency for charges over allegedly leaking classified information about the NSA to the news media. "'Speaking the truth is not a crime," Snowden wrote.

Snowden's revelations, including allegations that the U.S. has eavesdropped on allies including German Chancellor Angela Merkel, have led to calls by allies to cease such spying, and moves by Congress to overhaul U.S. surveillance laws and curb the agency's powers.

But head of the Senate Intelligence Committee said if Snowden had been a true whistle-blower, he could have reported it to her committee privately.

"That didn't happen, and now he's done this enormous disservice to our country," said Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif. "I think the answer is no clemency."

The chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, Rep. Mike Rogers, called clemency for Snowden a "terrible idea."

"He needs to come back and own up," said Rogers, R-Mich. "If he believes there's vulnerabilities in the systems he'd like to disclose, you don't do it by committing a crime that actually puts soldiers' lives at risk in places like Afghanistan."

Rogers contended that Snowden's revelations had caused three terrorist organizations to change how they communicate.

New Poll Shows Democratic Incumbents in Big Trouble
—By Kevin Drum| Wed Oct. 30, 2013 10:49 AM PDT

Today brings a new poll from Democracy Corps titled "Revolt against DC and the Republican Congress." And it's true: their polling shows that even in Republican districts, the GOP's brand has taken a beating.

But ...

In Democratic districts, net incumbent approval has plummeted by 11 points, from +8 approval to +3 disapproval...

This isn't good news for Democrats. <<--<<< :)

It's true that attitudes toward the Republican Party have taken a bigger hit than attitudes toward the Democratic Party, but attitudes toward actual incumbents are exactly the opposite. And in elections, that's what matters.
