Barack Obama, our next President

"The road ahead will be long. Our climb will be steep," Obama cautioned. Young and charismatic but with little experience on the national level, Obama smashed through racial barriers and easily defeated ... Full Story

The List....
House Republican leaders used a secret criteria list to decide which conservatives to purge from powerful House committees, Breitbart News has learned. As this time, it appears they will keep the criteria list hidden from the public, too. Spokespeople for members of House GOP leadership have refused to discuss details about the list on the record with press.
Because GOP Leadership won't discuss the list, it’s unclear what specific criteria the list contained and how much of a role it played in the conservative purge. It’s also unclear which member of House Republican leadership initiated this process.
In remarks to the Heritage Foundation’s Bloggers Briefing on Tuesday, Kansas Republican Rep. Tim Huelskamp confirmed the existence of such a list.
“We’ve heard from multiple sources that someone walked in with a list of votes and said if you didn’t reach a particular scorecard of what was considered the right vote – which by the way, in most cases, was not the conservative position – then [they said]‘we’re going to have to remove you from the committee,’” Huelskamp said.
“All that took place behind closed doors, which is again a problem with Washington, D.C.– whether it’s the budget negotiations, whether it’s everything else, it’s usually done behind closed doors," he explained. "I think, as conservatives, this is where we can win: We’ve got to be willing and able to talk about things in public instead of being afraid of actual public scrutiny.”
Huelskamp later told Breitbart News he thinks House Speaker John Boehner, Majority Leader Eric Cantor, and Whip Kevin McCarthy owe it to the American people to be transparent about this decision making process – and that they should publicly release the list.
“In the name of transparency and openness, they most certainly should release the criteria,” Huelskamp said in an email.“Republican leadership promised America a new era of transparency – they should deliver on it.”

WE WANT TO SEE THE LIST!!
oh please!!
Well looks like that demoted cry-baby just found out Santa Claus really DOES have a Naughty and Nice list. LUMPS OF COAL will be his gift this Christmas.

This guy was actually surprised there was a list kept of who voted and how they voted? Last checked, the congressional record has all that information for anyone to see. If the congressional record is a secret, it has the worst kept one's in history. What he always assumed is "THE LIST" would only be used against the opposing team.

What the DEMOTED US House of Representative just found out is when you live on the edge, you can fall off. Let's say it all together... HEE, HAW YA DUMMY!

See, here's the part that totally sucks for you.
Most economists agree that by 2016 the economy will be robust.
I realize, Nobraina,that you ignore reality, but the economy has been improving for 2 years.
Every poll shows Americans blame GOP for fiscal cliff.
You know, the polls that predicted Obama win.
Stay bitter.

So many people seem to miss that tidbit. The capital markets exploded during President Obama's time in office. If someone's 401k has kept on losing money since the President took office either the company sucks, your financial adviser sucks or there's some stealing going on.

You may need to set each of the below charts to the 5 year setting. I know most of the ignorant or blind to the facts type won't bother to even check this data out but it's there to see.

109.3 million workers in the private sector are supporting the 21.2 million government employees and 66.1 welfare recipients of food stamps and/or Medicaid.

Republican Rep. Virginia Foxx sure loves her traditional values.
She believes defense authorizations bills are the perfect place to include some good old fashioned discrimination against gay service members, just like Jesus said.

She has "very little tolerance" for people who need to borrow money to put themselves through college instead of doing it the traditional, non-loan-needing way she did when she went to college 700 years ago, as the Declaration of Independence clearly demands.

And she's an old school feminist, which is why she is an ardent supporter of any and all bills to strip women of their reproductive rights, just like the suffragists did when they marched and starved themselves, demanding to have fewer rights. In fact, as Foxx explained, "[N]obody has ever fought more for the rights of women than I have."

And every sporting event has a winner and loser at least as far as score goes.
Interesting part is the losers don't think they won like tea baggers do.
Not talking about sports but in the classroom. Not every classroom. Not every school. But an underlying progressive philosophy of political correctness is permeating and taking hold in all public schools - some to a greater degree than others.

It's not that much of a stretch to know some people are going to throw in the towel and get on the bandwagon. It's human nature not to want to feel like you're getting the short end of the stick.

Or feel like you're the schmuck busting your butt.
