First they said Obamacare would create death panels. Then they said the law would cover undocumented immigrants. Now they’re saying President Barack Obama gave Congress a special exemption, so that lawmakers and their staff members aren’t subject to the law.

The story is everywhere, from the Wall Street Journal editorial page to Fox News. Some high-profile Republicans are in high dudgeon over it. Senate Minority Whip John Cornyn called it an “outrageous exemption for Congress.” Right-wing groups like FreedomWorks are even more worked up.“Ready your pitchforks,” one of the group’s officials said last week.

As is often the case with these arguments, this one contains an element of truth. Obamacare really does treat congressional employees differently from other people. But that’s because of an amendment written by Senator Chuck Grassley, the Iowa Republican. The amendment—almost certainly a political stunt designed to embarrass the Democrats—created an ambiguity in the law that the Obama administration had to clarify. Last week the administration issued a ruling and, sure enough, it is getting political grief over it. But there’s no reason it should.

Republicans Fear Clinton in 2016

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.

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.”

The teabaggers will be jumping off of bridges after Clinton wins the Presidency....LMAO!

Conservatives across the board concerned about a Hillary Clinton run in 2016
So obviously the looming threat of a 2016 Hillary Clinton presidential run is keeping a lot of Republicans, conservatives, Tea Partiers, and Libertarians up long into the night
Will Fox News run any specials on the Republican presidential candidates for 2016, or will any of those candidates find themselves employed by Fox or even given their own show at some point before the election in 2016? Stranger things have happened. Look no further than former presidential candidate and current Fox News employee Mike Huckabee.

Republicans Secretly Think Hillary Clinton Will Crush Them In 2016

As Republicans begin to gear up for the 2016 presidential race, GOP insiders have one major concern that wasn't mentioned anywhere in the RNC's autopsy report.

Her name is Hillary Clinton, and Republicans worry that they won't have a shot against her, regardless of what changes the party makes before 2016.

Although most Republican strategists would not go on the record disparaging the party's chances, in private conversations with Business Insider, many savvy GOP insiders conceded that any Republican nominee would face an uphill battle against the former Secretary of State.

"If she runs, it'll be almost impossible, I fear," one Washington-based Republican strategist told Business Insider.

Limbaugh: Outrage over rodeo clown same as Muslim reaction to Muhammad toon
Rush Limbaugh weighed in on the recent uproar over a Mo. rodeo clown wearing a President Obama mask during a bull-riding event, saying that it’s “no different than those countries reacting freakishly when there were cartoons of the Prophet Muhammad,” Mediaite.com first reported.
“It is as though President Obama is a messiah or is a god,” he said,“and this little thing that happened at the Missouri State Fair is a defamation, a denunciation, almost a religious sacrilege that took place.”
“This is no different than what happened in all those countries that had the cartoons of the prophet and militant Muslims had a cow over it, went nuts,” he continued.“We have a president who’s above criticism, above being mocked, above being laughed at? We have not just a president, we have an entire Democrat political party and the American left which thinks that they are so damn special that they cannot be mocked, they cannot be made fun of.”

'Obama' rodeo stunt leads to sensitivity training for clowns
This week, the Missouri State Fair Commission ordered that officials and contractors hired by the state's rodeo association -- which would include cowboys and clowns -- complete sensitivity training before they are allowed to perform at the state fair again.
...
the clown, identified by rodeo officials as Tuffy Gessling, received a lifetime ban from performing again at the fair, which receives taxpayer funding.
Gessling was plenty sorry too, according to a post to his Facebook page captured by a local journalist: "I am sorry, I never ment to offend anyone I ment no disrespect to anyone for the joke or jokes I may have said at the rodeo, once agian i never ment to offend or hurt anyone's feelings." (The post was later deleted or made private.)
The aftershocks rippled beyond Gessling, as an attorney for the rodeo association's president, Mark Ficken, said Ficken resigned from the association because it wouldn't ban Gessling from its ranks; the Kansas City Star reported that Ficken, who is also superintendent of the Boonville School District, is being investigated by the school for any possible wrongdoing in the rodeo event.

Lots of people took the incident very seriously.
Do dismiss critics of the event as irrelevant or a joke reveals more about the poster from Chicago than those he was criticizing.

As a white liberal running in a majority African American district, Tennessee Democrat Stephen I. Cohen made a novel pledge on the campaign trail last year:

If elected, he would seek to become the first white member of the Congressional Black Caucus.

Now that he's a freshman in Congress, Cohen has changed his plans.

He said he has dropped his bid after several current and former caucus members made it clear to him that whites need not apply.

"I think they're real happy I'm not going to join," said Cohen, who succeeded Rep. Harold Ford, D-Tenn., in the Memphis district.

"It's their caucus and they do things their way.

You don't force your way in.

You need to be invited."

Cohen said he became convinced that joining the caucus would be "a social faux pas" after seeing news reports that former Rep. William Lacy Clay Sr., D-Mo., a co-founder of the caucus, had circulated a memo telling members it was "critical" that the group remain "exclusively African-American."

Other members, including the new chairwoman, Rep. Carolyn Cheeks Kilpatrick, D-Mich., and Clay's son, Rep. William Lacy Clay, D-Mo., agreed.

"Mr. Cohen asked for admission, and he got his answer....

It's time to move on,"

the younger Clay said.

"It's an unwritten rule.

It's understood.

It's clear."

Well since you so petty I will be too.

Since when is 17 trillion the same as 16 trillion. I believe we hit the 16 trillion mark during the DNC convention last year. I also think the debt is on pace to reach 22 trillion by 2014. Must be Bush's fault for everything the last 5 years. LOL !

BTW your glorious dems voted for war !

"not a scholar" indeed.
Since when is an increase from 10 to 16 "triple"?
Ronald Reagan actually did triple the national debt.
George W. Bush doubled the national debt.
And both did it during good economic times.
The current debt growth is related to two wars we didn't pay for, the Bush tax cuts, and the Bush Recession.
You don't have to be a scholar, but at least get some education on the basic facts.

Okay genius, I'll try again - since when is going from $10.63 trillion to $16.74 trillion TRIPLING?

What you posted was a lie. I corrected you. It's not petty to point out when someone posts blatantly false information.

And I thought conservatives were big on taking responsibility. Yet you and the rest of the right continues to blame President Obama for things Bush did.

Why can't you take responsibly for the things that your policies caused? Why do you insist on shifting blame to Obama for them?

Why can't you just be HONEST? Don't your party's stated principles mean ANYTHING?

Global warming deniers are crackpots. It isn't a debate among scientists. It's A debate between tea baggers and imaginary people. Carbon dioxide heats the planet. Humans produce 200 billion tons of atmospheric CO2 a year, over 100 times what is produced naturally. So what's to deny, that CO2 isn't a greenhouse gas or that humans don't produce it? Both are completely ignorant stances. Par for the course for the dumb tea baggers though...
