Obama Factor Adds to Fears of Democrats
March 15, 2014

Democrats are becoming increasingly alarmed about their midterm election fortunes amid President Obama’s sinking approval ratings, a loss in a special House election in Florida last week, and millions of dollars spent by Republican-aligned groups attacking the new health law.

The combination has led to uncharacteristic criticism of Mr. Obama and bitter complaints that his vaunted political organization has done little to help the party’s vulnerable congressional candidates.
...
Interviews with more than two dozen Democratic members of Congress, state party officials and strategists revealed a new urgency about the need to address the party’s prospects. One Democratic lawmaker, who asked not to be identified, said Mr. Obama was becoming “poisonous” to the party’s candidates. At the same time, Democrats are pressing senior aides to Mr. Obama for help from the political network.

Indoctrinating Our Children
Mar. 15, 2014

Obama's budget calls for HHS to spend $15 billion over 10 years to fund an Obamacare provision called the Maternal, Infant, and Early Childhood Home Visiting Program. An HHS budget document says this program will send government-funded “nurses, social workers, and other professionals” into people's homes to “improve parenting skills.”

“I think that there still needs to be great understanding of what the president has put on the table is really a birth-to-five proposal, recognizing that you can't start at 4-year-olds,” Sebelius said at the National Press Club.

“We really need to start at birth,” said Sebelius.“So, there will be an enhancement of home-visiting, which we know is an evidence-based strategy that helps people be good parents from the onset, helps the first and best teacher a child will ever have learn important skills.

The beginning years of a child’s life are critical for building the early foundation needed for success later in school and in life. Research shows that brain development is most rapid in the first years of life. Leading economists agree that high-quality early learning programs can help level the playing field for children from lower-income families on vocabulary, social and emotional development, while helping students to stay on track and stay engaged in the early elementary grades.

Children who attend these programs are more likely to do well in school, find good jobs, and succeed in their careers than those who don’t. And research has shown that taxpayers receive a high average return on investments in high-quality early childhood education, with savings in areas like improved educational outcomes, increased labor productivity, and a reduction in crime.

Launching a New Early Head Start-Child Care Partnership Program
As part of President Obama's Early Education Plan, we will support states and communities in expanding high quality early learning to over 100,000 infants and toddlers through the Early Head Start – Child Care Partnerships. Through these partnerships, Early Head Start grantees will partner with center-based and family child care providers who agree to meet Early Head Start Program Performance Standards and provide comprehensive, full-day, full year high-quality services to infants and toddlers from low-income families. This strategy, combined with an expansion of publicly funded preschool education for four-year olds, will ensure a cohesive and well-aligned system of early learning for children from birth to age five.

The Organization of Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) estimates that the United States ranks 28th out of 38 countries for the share of four-year olds enrolled in early childhood education. And fewer than 3 in 10 four-year-olds are enrolled in high-quality programs.

In other words, money spent well.

Thanks Barack !

WATCH: Rand Paul's Big Flip-Flop on Russia:

Earlier this week, Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) slammed President Barack Obama for not doing enough in response to Russian President Vladimir Putin's incursion into Crimea.

In April 2009, Paul, on the cusp of launching his Senate campaign, gave a talk to the College Republicans group at Western Kentucky University. He was asked about the large number of US troops stationed overseas by an audience member who said it was "ridiculous" for the United States to maintain permanent military bases in Europe and elsewhere around the world. Paul responded sympathetically: "We're now 60 years in Germany, 60 years in Japan, 50 years in Korea." He defended his father, Ron Paul, for having noted during the 2008 presidential race that there were foreign policy causes for 9/11: "We have to understand there is blowback from our foreign policy."

Paul Ryan To Meet With Congressional Black Caucus After 'Inarticulate' Poverty Remarks:

WASHINGTON, March 14 (Reuters)- Republican U.S. Representative Paul Ryan on Friday agreed to meet with the Congressional Black Caucus after members of the group branded his remarks about inner-city poverty this week "highly offensive".

The controversy began on Wednesday after Ryan said on William Bennett's talk radio show, "Morning in America," that there was a "tailspin of culture, in our inner cities in particular, of men not working and just generations of men not even thinking about working or learning the value of work."

"Let's be clear, when Mr. Ryan says 'inner city,' when he says,'culture,' these are simply code words for what he really means:'black'.

10 reasons why people love Obamacare:

10. Creates new protections to ensure your insurance plan covers you when you need it. Most states already has strong insurance protections. The Affordable Care Act (ACA) enhances these protections by eliminating limits on the amount of benefits you can receive.

9. Expands coverage for young adults. Under the ACA, young adults are able to stay on their parents’ coverage until age 26.

8. Strengthens the primary care system and supports community health centers. The ACA has already provided more than $130 million to community health centers all across the country to strengthen their programs while expanding access to primary care for community members.

7. Reduces childhood obesity and tobacco use. The Department of Public Health is using ACA grants to improve emergency medical services for children, reduce childhood obesity and encourage tobacco cessation.

6. Rewards quality of care, rather than quantity. The ACA supports the goals of the Commonwealth’s 2012 cost containment law by promoting the formation of Accountable Care Organizations that reward quality and efficiency of care rather than the quantity of care.

5. Makes prescription drug coverage more affordable for seniors. The ACA closes the “donut hole” in Medicare prescription drug coverage. Nearly 2.3 million seniors saved an average of $667 each on prescription drugs in 2013,predictions to almost double in 2014.

4. Covers preventive health services with no co-pay. Thanks to the ACA, most health plans must now cover preventive services like shots, smoking cessation and cancer screenings at no cost to the consumer. This will help increase access to critical preventative care in the short term, and save lives in the long run.

3. Provides tax credits to small businesses and increased coverage for employees. The ACA establishes tax credits for certain small employers to make it more affordable to cover their employees, which can be combined with additional wellness rebates through the Health Connector. Very low-income employees who cannot afford their employer’s coverage will become newly eligible for Obamacare without any penalty for employers.

2. Provides billions in additional federal dollars for states that enroll in Obamacare. The ACA streamlines state health insurance programs while providing additional federal reimbursement for people already covered. The ACA also provides grants to help states protect taxpayers from excessive premiums.

1. Ensures affordable coverage for more middle income families. The ACA extends health subsidies to those with incomes from 300% up to 400% of the federal poverty level (approximately $46,000 for an individual), making health insurance affordable for more low-and-middle-income families.

Thanks Barack !

I feel no desire whatsoever to know ...."what they're up to". But I just can't stand being decieved and out right lied to so I just don't stop on that channel ever...here's what they're up to.....fraud. they love to provoke a rise out of liberal minded individuals not unlike myself but I just don't like those blunt headed creeps. They are all just full of shtt . This isn't my opinion either this is fact. Unless your mind is so soft that you actually accept this nonsense as credible. If you in fact do then your just a dumbassed stooge.

Great evaluation. I think it could be taken farther by comparing it to the efforts of totalitarian regimes to brainwash their people. Lots of similarity.
Threee aspects that may not have been mentioned: Appear to be "Fair and Balanced", "Distancing" and "Realingn Criticism".
Not only is it important to repeat the term "Fair and Balanced", but you need to have an occasionial guest from the "other side", who of course, is usually a moderate and is then "blasted" by the host and other guests. In a recent expose on SNAP benefits called The Great Food Stamp Binge, they mentioned that both sides of the political spectrum have contributed to the problem (fair and balanced), but spent the end of the show associating Obama with their exaggeration of the problem. When they showed some Novellas designed to influence Hispanics, they neglected to mention they were created during the Bush administration.
Distancing is when the listeners defend the network because the ideas presented are from the "contracted" show anchors. As if Fox News really has no control nor influence on what the hosts say.
Realigning Criticism is when Fox News labels attacks on their prophets of conservatism as excessive and thus by definition, unreasonable. For example, counter the accusation that Obama caused record deficits by invoking the deficits under Bush, and viewers, taking a cue from the network, claim unfair use of "old" history.
The irony is that the viewers think they are reliving the American Revolution by defending their rights to guns, junk food, and resources. But in fact they are pawns who have been taught to carry a gun and carry a cross

Experts: Michelle Obama Cited Bogus Study Showing Drastic Drop in Childhood Obesity
Mar 17, 2014

When Michelle Obama celebrated the fourth anniversary of "Let's Move," her White House initiative on fitness and healthy eating, she cited a recent study by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) showing a remarkable 43 percent drop in obesity rates among children ages 2-5....

But a report by Reuters health & science correspondent Sharon Begley casts doubt on the validity of the results of the study. While Begley concludes that "no one can say for certain that the claim is wrong," the results are so uncertain that "based on the researchers' own data, the obesity rate may have even risen rather than declined."
...
This is not the first time Mrs. Obama has cited statistics in support of Let's Move that turned out to be less than meets the eye.

Just last year, on the third anniversary of Let's Move, the first lady's office sent out a press release that appeared to take credit for the recent developments that "national childhood obesity rate has leveled off, and even declined in some cities and states." In particular, the White House highlighted a 13 percent decline in childhood obesity in Mississippi. But as we reported at the time:
[t]he 13 percent decrease that Mrs. Obama touted is measured from Spring 2005 through Spring 2011.“Let's Move” was launched in February 2010, so the first five years of the time period in question were prior to Let's Move's existence.

Pfeiffer: Obama Will Be ‘an Asset in Every Way Possible’ for Dems
March 16, 2014

White House adviser Dan Pfeiffer dismissed the notion that President Obama and his policies are politically toxic, despite Tuesday’s loss in Florida’s special election and a new New York Times report finding Democrats fearful of their November prospects.

Pfeiffer blamed the fact that Democrats face such an uphill climb in keeping the Senate this year was due just having so many senators in office to begin with.“That’s what happens when you win a lot of elections like we did in 2008,” he said on Meet the Press.
