As issues loom in D.C., Obama heads west to raise cash

With Congress home for the Thanksgiving recess, President Obama has the political spotlight largely to himself for the next three days.

He's spending the next two on the West Coast with Democratic Party fundraisers and a few policy remarks. Behind the agenda, though, lurk major issues back in Washington, including the looming end-of-November deadline the president gave his team for fixing HealthCare.gov , and a nuclear deal with Iran that has angered allies including Israel and many members of Congress.

Mr. Obama raised money for the Democratic National Committee (DNC) and the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) in Seattle Sunday night at two separate events. The first event for the DNC raised $20,000 per person attending and $32,000 per couple and be held at the home of Sonya and Tom Campion, co-founder of the clothing chain Zumiez. The second event, for the DCCC, was at the home of former Microsoft Executive Jon Shirley. Attendees had to pay $16,200 per person or $32,400 per couple to attend.

Some of the money that Mr. Obama helps raise over the next several days will likely go to incumbents who have struggled to defend the Affordable Care Act in the wake of its rocky rollout.

Surprising you'd waste you time quoting Obaid, who's a fellow at Harvard and a regular on the various political "shows."
Do you think Kerry spoke for Obama during the deal making? Why would an ambassador counter his government?

How Should Republicans Respond to the Iran Deal?

Jim Antle considers the effect that the deal with Iran will have on the foreign policy debate inside the GOP. He sees a political opportunity for hawks in the party:

The hawks’ op-eds and 2014 attack ads write themselves. Obama, John Kerry, and the mullahs are on one side, Israel and the GOP on the other.

It’s true that the op-eds and attack ads will write themselves, but is the public going to be particularly receptive to this message? Public opinion is on the side of a negotiated deal with Iran, and it seems unlikely that this is going to change if the interim deal leads to a more lasting agreement. Since Iran has made most of the concessions in the interim deal, and the deal includes all the restrictions that could realistically have been achieved, there is not much for hawks to criticize. There may not be much incentive for elected Republicans to endorse the deal right away, but there is also very little advantage in defining themselves as knee-jerk opponents of diplomacy. Republican hawks may seize on the Iran deal as a chance to lock the party into its dead-end attachment to confrontational and aggressive foreign policy, but if the party follows them it will be putting itself once again on the wrong side of public opinion and casting itself once again as a party in search of new wars to fight. Republicans should view the deal with Iran as an opportunity to change their party’s reputation. They can do this by giving diplomacy the chance to succeed, and by opposing when necessary those measures that could undermine future negotiations.

Conservatives should reject what Republican hawks are telling them on Iran, and they should do this mainly because their arguments make no sense. First, the goal of “zero enrichment” is a fantasy, so conservatives should ignore declarations that this is the only acceptable outcome. Iran is never going to agree to those terms. Iran isn’t going to be forced into accepting them, so additional sanctions serve no purpose except to inflict more pain on Iranian civilians. Increased pressure with the goal of toppling the government isn’t going to work. The regime perversely benefits from sanctions, because sanctions deflect blame from the government for the country’s economic problems and sabotage the opposition by impoverishing the middle class. Foreign governments are naturally blamed for the damage that the sanctions do, so giving Iranians more reasons to resent foreign powers certainly isn’t going to turn them against their own government. Finally,“preventive” war is nothing of the kind, since it will almost certainly increase Iran’s interest in acquiring nuclear weapons rather than discourage them.

Poll: Most Americans Oppose Obamacare Repeal Despite Rollout Troubles
Despite sharp divisions over the long-term impact of President Obama's health-reform law, fewer than two in five Americans say it should be repealed, virtually unchanged since last summer, the latest United Technologies/National Journal Congressional Connection Poll has found.
Amid all the tumult over the law's troubled implementation, the survey found that public opinion about it largely follows familiar political tracks and has changed remarkably little since the summer on the critical question of what Congress should do next. On that measure, support for repeal has not significantly increased among any major group except Republicans and working-class whites since the Congressional Connection Poll last tested opinion on the question in July.

I get it, right whiner thinking at its best. There is natural radiation so who gives a f*ck that man made pollution kills thousands of people.

I know, dump some arsenic in neighbors coffee & when in court, try the "but there is arsenic naturally in groundwater" defense.

And you wonder why you Tea Party people are considered dumber than sh*t.

National 2012 Traffic Fatalities were 33,561 and so the Magic Negro has started a campaign to rid America of all Vehicles. This effort should also reduce medical costs for Obamacare because traffic injuries can be very expensive.

His adviser Valerie Jarret has also presented him with a Study Group proposal to arm all EMS Technicians with sidearms to perform on-the-spot triage at accident sites. Should a traffic victim's injuries be determined to be too expensive to repair, the EMS Technicians on site can simply shoot them in the head thus saving America the cost of unnecessary medical procedures.

Moochelle has started her joint campaign called Walk America

Allah Akbar.
