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

Democrats...

"The narrower the sphere of action proper to an idea, the more disturbing will its influence be if the idea is forcibly applied to the totality of life. Fancy a frenzied vegetarian insistent upon surveying the whole world from the viewpoint of his culinary dogmas: in art, he would censure all paintings but vegetal landscapes; as for the national economy, he would be strongly agrarian; in religion, he would bow to no gods but the archaic harvest-deities; for clothing, he would tolerate only hemp, flax, or matweed; and as a philosopher, he might insist on the teaching of a transcendent botany. Yet no less absurd is the man who, like many today, stands before us proclaiming,“Above all else, I am a democrat!"

So why do you two morons expect someone else to pay for their January coverage in October.

When you sign in with the ACA, that policy is committed when payment is made just like your January coverage is when you make your payment.

Popular Government...or we get what we want...

"If we will listen to the judgment of those who should best know the nature of popular government, we shall find no reason for good men to desire or choose it. Xenophon, that brave scholar and soldier, disallowed the Athenian commonweal for that they followed that form of government wherein the wicked are always in greatest credit, and virtuous men kept under. They expelled Aristides the Just; Themistocles died in banishment; Miltiades in prison; Phocion, the most virtuous and just man of his age, though he had been chosen forty-five times to be their general, yet he was put to death with all his friends, kindred, and servants, by the fury of the people, without sentence, accusation, or any cause at all."

-Sir Robert Filmer, Patriarcha

"We could eliminate the income tax, replace it with nothing, and still fund the same level of big government we had in the late 1990&#8242;s. We don’t need to “replace” the income tax at all. I see a consumption tax as being a little better than the personal income tax, and I would vote for the Fair-Tax if it came up in the House of Representatives, but it is not my goal. We can do better."

Senators like Lindsay Graham and Mitch McConnell may find out if they have a strong opponent...

Representatives like Peter King probably have Rockefeller Republican constituencies...

John McCain is finished if he tries to run again...

Pennsylvania Republicans still regret supporting Arlen Spector over Pat Toomey in 2004.....just because they thought he had a better chance to win...

How so? It is completely logical. Anyone who has been to an emergency room will tell you it is not a place where anyone with insurance would choose to be unless it is a true emergency. People with colds and fever will now be calling their doctor. If for no other reason than to avoid paying the $50 -$100 co-pay for an emergency room visit. I think it is illogical to believe they would do otherwise.
people with colds and most fevers should not be calling a medical provider at all. What a bunch of pusses we've become.

I have nothing against Bush as a person. He's a nice guy and a great father. A lousy president and not very bright but pleasant none the less. Reminds me a little bit of Gomer Pyle.
I feel the same about Obama. I would love to meet the guy but would intentionally avoid talking politics.

CBO said ten years & expected that to continue beyond that point.

No one ever said the ACA would insure everyone. The CBO estimated a similar number when they looked over the ACA before it was passed. The idea you & Flack ac like this is something new just verifies you two dipsticks are uninformed jackasses.

Did anyone see Jeb Bush making the rounds on Sunday talk shows. He's definitely thinking of making a bid for the White House.

I have to say he's making the best of the Cruz fiasco to paint himself as a voice of reason.

“I think the best way to repeal Obamacare is to have an alternative; we never hear the alternative...So have a little bit of self-restraint. It might actually be a politically — a better approach to see the massive dysfunction."

Speaking of Cruz's fight:“It was a mistake to focus on something that couldn’t be achieved. And that’s what that was. It was tactics.”

On the GOP's claim the the debt ceiling may not need to be raised:“Well, you have to pay your obligations. I do a lot of traveling overseas. And when we have these spikes of political conversations that are not grounded in reality, the rest of the world looks at us as untrustworthy.”

“That has implications, not just for us, a slowdown of economic activity, it has implications in the world because people have to count on the United States. And if we’re behaving this way, it makes it harder to do so,” he said.

“I’m not blaming Republicans. I think we have a systemic problem in Washington right now and the void of leadership is making it harder to get to a better place,” Bush said.

“The better place would be that with civility, have a dialogue about the bigger, more pressing issues and try to find common ground rather than use each instance of…a possible crisis to win a political point.”

Yep. Definitely entertaining the idea of running for president.

On our privacy and a lil ole Social Security Number...

"The late Murray Kempton used to tell me he remembered that Alf Landon, campaigning against FDR and specifically Social Security back in 1936, used to shout to the crowds words to the effect of “Mark my words, those Social Security numbers will follow you from cradle to grave.” Landon was right. Today you might as well have the SS number tattooed on your forehead, along with all other significant “private” data, preferably in some bright hue so the monitoring cameras along highways and intersections can get a clean hit."
