The One Hundred Tenth United States Congress was the meeting of the legislative branch of the United States federal government,

between January 3, 2007, and January 3, 2009,

during the last two years of the second term of President George W. Bush.

It was composed of the Senate and the House of Representatives.

The apportionment of seats in the House was based on the 2000 U.S. census.

The Democratic Party controlled a majority in both chambers for the first time since the end of the 103rd Congress in 1995.

Although the Democrats held fewer than 50 Senate seats, they had an operational majority because the two independent senators caucused with the Democrats for organizational purposes.

But dont you guys come on here everyday and tell us how "radical" Obama is?

His administration seems anything but "mostly ignored, dismissed, or tolerated."

I think Obama has had quite a bit more on his table than "existing society's imperfections and weaknesses" - like 2 wars, a collapsing economy, a failing education system, and ever percolating social discontent.

Do TEA Partiers seem "content and passive"?

Does the Occupy movement seem "content and passive"?

Ryan urged Obama to get off the fence.

“This does not have to divide the two parties," the Wisconsin congressman said.

"And so we're going to ask, where does President Obama stand?

Does he stand with his former chief of staff Mayor Rahm Emanuel,

with the children and the parents,

or does he stand with the union?

On issues like this, we need to speak out and be very clear."

Total Red Herring...

Why would the President of the United States inject himself into a local/municipal issue like a teacher strike?

The bigger question is - which of Romenys political advisers thought it would be a good idea to have Ryan agreeing with Rham Emanuel?!

Not sure how you can portray Obama as a huge departure (much less a "mastermind"!) from the social-political approach of the past 100 years.(and I do think that is Levins point actually)

BTW - Levin is absurdly verbose.

Obama’s Broken Deficit Promise
“This is big,” wrote White House director of new media Macon Phillips in a February 23, 2009 blog post,
”the President today promised that by the end of his first term, he will cut in half the massive federal deficit we’ve inherited. And we’ll do it in a new way: honestly and candidly.”
Indeed, President Obama did make that promise that day, saying,
“today I’m pledging to cut the deficit we inherited in half by the end of my first term in office. This will not be easy. It will require us to make difficult decisions and face challenges we’ve long neglected. But I refuse to leave our children with a debt that they cannot repay — and that means taking responsibility right now, in this administration, for getting our spending under control.”
..........
BTW - you really should listen to the speech.
He did not say what you think he said.
Deficits?

They don't matter. Dick Cheney said so.

And the Bush/Cheney administration was held in high esteem at the latest GOP convention, right?

Tea bag warrior, have you ever heard of Democrats in name only? Apparently not but they do exist just like Republican in name only. Your desperation is showing and it is humerus at best, bitching, belly aching moaning and groaning at worst, ha ha. Your flipper is not looking to good and you can't put him in white house and that reality causes you to grab any thing even if it is a lie. I would say president Obama but he king Obama to you

Obama up six points over Romney

A new survey indicates President Barack Obama moved up four points following the Democratic National Convention last week, and now has a six point advantage over his Republican challenger Mitt Romney.

According to a CNN/ORC International Poll (PDF) released Monday, 52% of likely voters nationwide back the president, compared to 46% for Romney. Just before the convention in Charlotte, North Carolina, Obama was tied with Romney 48%-48%.

This year's Democratic event wiped away some of Romney's gains on personal qualities. The Republican nominee's favorable rating increased to 53% after the GOP convention, but fell to 48% one week later after the Democratic event. Meanwhile, Obama rose to 57% in the last week, his highest mark since 2010.

YEAHHHHHH BABYYYYYYYYYY!

Romney Losing Men
The gender gap has been a feature of American politics for decades, with men favoring Republicans and women favoring Democrats. The latest round of polls shows that Romney may be losing his grip on men. A CNN poll released Monday showed Obama leading Romney among men 48% to 47%. A week earlier Romney was ahead among men 55% to 43%. On Tuesday, an ABC/WaPo poll gave Obama a 3-point lead among men. There is no evidence that Romney is making up the loss among women. Unless Romney can rectify the situation quickly, he is in trouble.

Romney Wants to Replace Obamacare but Doesn't Know with What
Over the weekend Romney was asked about Obamacare and said he liked some aspects of it, which angered parts of his base. He backtracked a bit and ended up with multiple positions within a few hours. But the problem is sure to come back on Oct. 3 at the first debate. A question that he has to be prepared to answer is this: "Governor, you said you would repeal the ACA and then replace it. What would you replace it with?" His problem is that there is no good answer. Many, if not most, voters like the idea of banning insurance companies from rejecting people with pre-existing conditions, but without all the new customers a mandate brings in, the ban would bankrupt the insurance companies.

If Romney says the the ban on rejecting sick people must be kept, he is going to have to explain how that will be financed. If he says it is OK for insurance companies to reject sick people, it is going to cost him votes. The trouble with a debate is that he has to address both his base and moderate voters at the same time and they want different things.

Naval expert: Ships shown during Democratic convention tribute to veterans were Russian

Published: 12:35 AM 09/12/2012

The Democratic National Convention’s final night included a stirring tribute to America’s veterans from a retired naval four-star admiral, complete with a backdrop of jets flying over a row of proud warships.

But convention organizers may soon regret it.

Norman Polmar, author of “The Naval Institute Guide to the Soviet Navy” and other military handbooks, told the Navy Times on Tuesday that the ships were Russian vessels.

“The ships are definitely Russian,” Polmar told the military newspaper.

“There’s no question of that in my mind.”

The ships depicted in the Democrats’ backdrop had radar designs that the U.S. fleet doesn’t use.
