You type well but all this is faux yarn.

WASHINGTON — Pivotal developments on two cultural issues — immigration reform and gay marriage — offer an early preview of potential fault lines among Republicans weighing White House bids in 2016.
When the Senate approved a comprehensive immigration reform measure, Sens. Marco Rubio of Florida and Rand Paul of Kentucky voted in opposite directions amid divisions in the party over how to curb the fast-growing flow of Latino voters to Democrats.
At the same time, the Supreme Court rulings supporting gay marriage attracted broad criticism from most 2016 hopefuls, though Paul suggested that Republicans need to “agree to disagree on some of these issues.” That foreshadows likely fissures ahead, as Republican contenders face increasing pressure to show more tolerance toward gay marriage with many Republican voters in their 20s, 30s and 40s calling for acceptance.

Taken together, the issues offer an early test for a Republican Party looking for a White House winner after back-to-back Democratic victories and seeking to transform itself amid rapidly changing public opinion toward acceptance on these and other cultural matters.
Republican strategists say both topics serve as gateway issues for many voters. If the party’s tone on immigration or gay marriage sounds too intolerant, they say, it could prevent voters from listening on other issues.

""U.S. oil prices jumped above $105 a barrel Wednesday, their highest level in over a year, as stockpiles of crude dwindled and tensions in Egypt kept traders on edge. Gasoline prices in the United States also began to move higher.
Oil prices rose nearly $2 a barrel following a report from the American Petroleum Institute showing a 9 million barrel draw down in crude oil stored in tanks around the country.
The $2 rise comes on top of gains made over the last couple of weeks after widespread protests and a military takeover in Egypt. U.S. oil prices are up 10% since the end of June.""
----------
Proving Dumb Bullshit Writer's stupidity is just too easy!!
Kindly explain to us how situations in Egypt have an affect on the price of oil. You can copy and paste from that article if you don't have a clue.(Suez Canal, dufus) So, how much more would you have to charge per barrel in a million barrel super tanker to drive it around Africa instead of through it?
That would be the only impact because the measley production from Egypt has no impact on the price of oil.

Oil is traded with dollars. Making the dollar worthless will have the effect of having to give an increased number of dollars to purchase the same barrel of oil that hasn't changed value.

Democrats Expressed Their Displeasure Of How Obama “Was Carrying Out The Health Care Law” And That They May “Pay A Political Price” For ObamaCare.
Democratic senators, at a caucus meeting with White House officials, expressed concerns on Thursday about how the Obama administration was carrying out the health care law they adopted three years ago. Democrats in both houses of Congress said some members of their party were getting nervous that they could pay a political price if the rollout of the law was messy or if premiums went up significantly.”

Sad news for the Republicans

Last fall, when President Obama was reelected and Republicans were processing their unanticipated loss, the prospects for comprehensive immigration reform looked stronger than any policy in Obama’s first four years. That was mainly because Republicans had just watched Mitt Romney lose Hispanic voters by more than 40 percentage points and understood that demographics were threatening their future viability.

Eight months later, the odds for immigration reform look much, much worse — despite the comprehensive reform bill that just passed the Senate with bipartisan support. Once again, Republican sentiment is responsible for the change. As the shock of Romney’s loss has faded, many Republicans have talked themselves out of taking the step they once thought urgent — agreeing to legal status and a pathway to citizenship for the estimated 11 million undocumented immigrants living in the United States. The verdict should become clearer after House Republicans meet on Wednesday to plot a strategy for how to move ahead — or not move ahead — on immigration.

A big cause of the shift in GOP attitudes, besides a general unwillingness to hand Obama a victory, is a growing belief that agreeing to reform the nation’s immigration laws isn’t necessary to repair the party’s problems with Hispanic voters. If Republicans indeed choose this path, then they’ll have to study carefully the handful of House and Senate members who have opposed reform and still managed to attract a sizeable share of Hispanic

Ex-New York Governor Spitzer has a better chance of winning the Comptroller General post for NYC.
Begich barely won over Ted Stevens, who was convicted in federal court a week before the election.

Here's the New York Times defense of Obama:

http://cityroom.blogs.nytimes.com/2009/01/20/...

For some reason, even the New York Times can't find any evidence that Obama was ever on the campus at Columbia.

Nobody in Obama's class ever even met him. However, he is remembered as a poor student at Occidental.(Which naturally brings up the question as to how the hell did a poor student at Occidental named Barry Soetoro get admitted to Columbia.)

Perhaps we're looking for the wrong name. He supposedly transferred from Occidental to Columbia, and his name at Occidental was Barry Soetoro.

What is the name on the degree he supposedly got from Columbia?

The law states "shall" when it says implemented by 2014.
Only Congress can write laws.
Congress hasn't written any laws changing the date ObamaKare "shall" be implemented.
... so, delaying the implementation until after the mid-term elections is either a violation of the law, or you think the president can just write his own laws to suit his whim, right?

You're saying Obama is a dictator, right?

Perhaps we need someone who's smart to answer these questions, since we can't find an answer for them:

Care to explain how a computer-generated signature got on the so-called "birth certificate" on the White House website? We could just start there.
I've got an idea. How about submitting that birth certificate as evidence. That would solve everything. For some reason, most likely because it would be a felony, Obama's lawyers will say and do anything to avoid submitting that fraudulent document as evidence in any court room.
I often tell my wife we'll trade Obama for Putin. Man, does that bring the house down with laughter. Like they want someone the entire world sees as an ignorant buffoon.
Well, I've got a KGB assassin meeting to go to.
Before I go, how about you tell us why Obama lied for two weeks after the Benghazi attack covering up an Al Qaeda attack.
Then you can give us any reason why we should be in "talks" with the Taliban other than to sabotage the Karzai government.
Then you can give us an update on Janet Napolitano's preparation for a large-scale war with the American people.
Then you can explain Eric Holder running guns for Mexican drug cartels.
Then you can tell us about why the Muslim Brotherhood is in the White House every day when they're being tossed out on their asses in every government in the Arab world.
Then you can explain to us the benefit of giving every Wahhabist terrorist in Saudi Arabia "special traveller" status to enter the US without scrutiny.
Then you can explain to us why Obama wants to give weapons to Al Qaeda.
.... I could go on for pages here....

This should be enough homework for you.
