do ya think the republicans might be the reason the dems are unhappy?
I know you'd love to believe that. But a general dissatisfaction about the direction of the country usually has more to do with those who hold the most power - and that's a sitting president.

Then there's the Democratic-controlled Senate for the past five years too.

And whatever the mainstream media writes about the high unemployment rate and how many Americans have give up looking, it better not write the truth about how ObamaCare contributes to this.

The media is wise to not report that

74% of small-business owners say they have or intend to reduce hours, or fire people, or simply not hire as a result of ObamaCare.

And, according to Investor's Business Daily, ObamaCare also gives incentives to employees to accept fewer hours: "Some 2.3 million workers might have their hours cut due to ObamaCare's employer mandates, even if there's no negative impact on total hours worked, a recent study from the University of California at Berkeley Labor Center estimated.

The other part of the equation involves more government benefits for those facing shorter hours. This will come starting in 2014 from ObamaCare health subsidies. Households working less may also get additional benefits, such as food stamps."

Obama's proud of beingknown as The Food Stamp President.

He wants 2 green cars in every driveway (although they are unaffordable) and a chicken purchased with Foodstamps in every pot and pot in every house.

The rodeo clown who donned a mask of President Barack Obama last weekend at the Missouri State Fair was a disappointing episode for the Show-Me State, a White House spokesman said Wednesday.
Deputy press secretary Josh Earnest said that he had no reaction to the clown from Obama. But Earnest, a native Missourian, indicated that he was disappointed with the attention the clown has brought to his state.
"I can tell you as a native Missourian, it's certainly not one of the finer moments for our state and not the way that I like to see our state mentioned in the news," Earnest said.

"A Facebook group created Monday for Tuffy Gessling, the rodeo clown who was banned for life from the Missouri State Fair for wearing a President Obama mask during Saturday’s bull-riding event, has already gained more than 30,000 supporters who think he has been treated unfairly. The page reached nearly 17,000 likes the day it was created alone."

Your supposed "source" seems to be alone in his thoughts.

"I ain't got a dime. But, what I got is mine.

Rightwingers would say that CNN's head-in-the-sand piece on youthful joblessness serves as the latest example of the pro-Obama media's failure, blindness and unwillingness to see and state the obvious.

And those screwy Tea Partiers say that by historical standards, this recovery stinks.

And to understand why requires a repudiation of the very foundation of leftism.

Leftists believe that enlightened government bureaucrats -- meaning themselves -- possess both the power to redistribute wealth from the undeserving to the deserving and the wisdom to know the difference.

so you're saying no republicans voted for the Iraq war? and the democrats were the ones who suggested it?

EVERYONE should be responsible enough to carry health insurance. Unfortunately too citizens are of the carefree, devil-may-care mentality which requires intervention. By gambling on your good health, you put all of us at risk of covering your emergency care at at later date. IMO, charging you $1,050 a year for your stupidity is justified.
The "number" for those of us who are responsible adults is the cost we pay for our insurance and with it, our peace of mind. What I would really like to see is people like you denied access at the emergency room door.
Everyone should be responsible to pay for their own medical care, by whatever means they choose.

Bush, presidents, presidential candidates and the establishment political class at large has constituted fair game for newspaper editorialists, commentators, and comedians – until now.”
Peter Roff, commenting in US News & World Report, argued that the art of political satire, where it is acceptable to laugh at our imperfect leaders, has fallen by the wayside under Obama.“From Mark Twain to Will Rodgers, from Fred Allen to Mort Sahl, Johnny Carson and Jay Leno, humorists, clowns and comedians have made taking shots at politicians their bread and butter,” Roff writes.“Until Barack Obama, that is.”
This high level of political sensitivity from increasingly diversified camps in the United States is a worrisome trend, and may eventually prove not only the futility of democracy inside of multicultural societies, it may lead to the political irrelevancy of the Democrats and Republicans – unless they can muster the courage to not only laugh at themselves, but allow others to laugh at them as well. Laughter is nothing more than the freedom of expression, and should not be treated as anything more or less. It’s a travesty that so many Americans need to be reminded of such a thing.
so you're a satirist?

I wonder why they've been so quiet since sequestration kicked in? Shouldn't they be cheering and declaring victory?
Unfortunately for you and this administration, the American people just aren't as stupid as you want to think they are.

The majority said the sequestration wasn't enough.

Just like they didn't want Obamacare and now want it repealed.

But Reid said he and Obama know what's best and Dinger said it's the only way to control the people.

You're going to put your trust in Harry Reid knowing what's best for you and Democrats controlling you? Really?

It's really sad when you are in the grocery store making healthy choices and you see a family where all the women look like they belong on the Honey Boo Boo Reality show. I remember June weighed in at 300 PLUS. I hadn't seen it in a long while and saw about 2 minutes while channel surfing. I can't see that she has lost an oz. And all her daughters including Honey Boo look fatter than ever.
She puts butter on pork chops (gag) and thinks the boxed potato mix with gelatinous cheese is a good side dish. Nothing green in her home ever, not a salad or vegetable. Maybe she can get a free copy of the hip-hip songs from the WH.
Hip-hop is more dangerous than obesity. But at least Moochelle has identified the target audience for obesity.

North Carolina Gov. Patrick McCrory has signed a sweeping voting reform bill that imposes strict photo identification requirements on the state's 4.5 million voters, rolls back the early voting period and repeals one-stop registration during early voting.

Almost immediately following the signing, civil rights groups filed lawsuits in federal court challenging the law.

After working 34 years as a court clerk in Kansas City, Sharon Snyder was fired in June for giving Robert Nelson a public document that showed him how to properly seek DNA tests, a move that eventually led to his release from prison three decades after being wrongfully convicted of rape.

Despite being punished for helping Nelson, Snyder told MSNBC's "All In With Chris Hayes" on Wednesday she would do it all over again.

"Oh yes, I would do it again," Snyder said in her first national television interview with Nelson. "I am so happy that he got exonerated on this charge, and felt that would happen or he wouldn't have filed that motion to start out with."

Doubt it.
Democrats will be active,

Attorney General Eric Holder announced Thursday that the Justice Department is opening a new front in the battle for voter protections, a response to the Supreme Court ruling that he said dealt a major setback to the Voting Rights Act.

In a speech to the National Urban League in Philadelphia, Holder said that as its first move, the department is asking a federal court in San Antonio to require the state of Texas to obtain advance approval before putting future political redistricting changes in place.

The attorney general called the Voting Rights Act "the cornerstone of modern civil rights law" and said that "we cannot allow the slow unraveling of the progress that so many, throughout history, have sacrificed so much to achieve."

The Supreme Court, on a 5-4 vote, threw out the most powerful part of the landmark Voting Rights Act, the law that became a major turning point in black Americans' struggle for equal rights and political power.

The move in Texas is the Justice Department's first action to further safeguard voting rights following the Supreme Court decision on June 25, said Holder, "but it will not be our last."

"Even as Congress considers updates to the Voting Rights Act in light of the court's ruling, we plan, in the meantime, to fully utilize the law's remaining sections to ensure that the voting rights of all American citizens are protected," Holder said.

The requirement to obtain advance approval from either the department or a federal court before changing voting laws is available under the Voting Rights Act when intentional discrimination against voters is found.

The section of the Voting Rights Act Holder invoked can be applied to all types of voting changes — from moving the location of a polling place to imposing stringent requirements such as photo identification at the polls.

In the Texas case, the department is not directly intervening but is filing what's known as a statement of interest in support of the private groups that have filed suit.

Holder said that based on evidence of intentional racial discrimination presented last year in a redistricting case in Texas, "we believe that the state of Texas should be required to go through a preclearance process whenever it changes its voting laws and practices."

In Texas, there is a history of "pervasive voting-related discrimination against racial minorities," Holder added.

A three-judge panel in San Antonio has been looking at Texas voting maps since 2011, when the court threw out boundaries drawn by a then-GOP supermajority in the statehouse.

An ensuing legal battle between the state and a coalition of minority rights groups wreaked havoc on the 2012 elections in Texas, delaying party primaries that ultimately used temporary maps drawn by the court.

Under the direction of GOP Gov. Rick Perry last month, the Legislature ratified those interim maps as permanent over the objection of Democrats, who still believe the maps are biased and underrepresent minorities.

Aides to Perry and Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott did not immediately return messages seeking comment.

Son of jailed leader says evidence could put U.S. president in prison
Can't say WND is exactly an unbiased source, so I did some research and the allegation is, if nothing else, suspicious.

Examiner, "We know that this administration is supplying weapons to the al-Nursa Front in Syria. We have heard the claim that the CIA was allegedly running guns in Benghazi. Evidence seems to also suggest the illegal weapons trafficking could have been the reason why four Americans were killed in Benghazi."

However, apparently Senators McCain and Graham are also culpable according to this article - if any of it is true.

Considering the self-imposed censorship of the liberal media not to expose any wrongdoing on the part of this administration, we probably shouldn't hold our breath that this will even see the light of day even if it is true.
