Republicans Unite Behind Putin the Dictator In Order to Diss Obama

With Republicans falling over themselves to hug Putin while aiding Assad in his messaging, and Putin following Republicans lead to take digs at “American exceptionalism” when Obama says it, it’s hard to know who the “bad guys” are these days.

Republicans et al are elevating Putin in order to tend their bitter Obama wounds; thus, because Putin had an op-ed on the NYT in which he swaggered a lot (remarkably like another “dictator”, Bush — an accusation made by constitutional lawyers), Obama is “weak”. This is the conclusion of his usual detractors, and since many Republicans are saying it, it’s also become the takeaway and the trickle down beltway auto-looping narrative of the day.

It’s as if there is no more time. It’s all done now. The weapons are turned over and Putin delivered on his promise and we have proof that even though Obama was talking to him, this was really all Putin’s idea (even though Putin hasn’t exactly proven to be such a long term thinker).

Or, reality: This is the BEGINNING of very tense negotiations that may or may not even work, and Putin did what he had to do because it turns out that President Obama is not someone to cross when it really matters.

The Obamacare Swindle (It’s Not What You Think)

Health-care reform isn’t going anywhere. But that hasn’t stopped Republicans from using it to raise money from gullible Tea Partiers who want it defunded.

House Republican leadership does not want a government shutdown over Obamacare, but the agitation of conservative activists might make one inevitable.

….. Conservatives must know they have nothing to gain politically from taking this stance, which raises the question: why do it? One answer, as suggested by the National Review’s Robert Costa in August, is money. Tea party organizations, he writes,“aren’t worried about the establishment’s ire. In fact, they welcome it. Business has boomed since the push to defund Obamacare caught on. Conservative activists are lighting up social media, donations are pouring in, and e-mail lists are growing.”

The Conservative Alternative To ObamaCare Isn’t An Alternative To ObamaCare

So House conservatives are planning to roll out their long awaited alternative to Obamacare, some three years after they first promised to do so — and after more than three dozen votes to repeal it. The conservative alternative wouldn’t do nothing at all.

“Individuals who purchase coverage approved for sale in their state could claim a deduction of $7,500 against their income and payroll taxes, regardless of the cost of the insurance. Families could deduct $20,000.” The trouble with this, Leavitt says, is that deductions disproportionately benefit the rich. By contrast, Levitt notes, Obamacare gives low income folks subsidies in the form of tax credits, which disproportionately benefit the poor.

GOP Deludes Itself On Shutdown Threat

it’s easier to remember that what we’re hearing on the right is the din of 275 Republicans and thousands of movement conservatives caterwauling at each other. It’s a fascinating story. It’s genuinely newsworthy that John Boehner and company were cowed into giving Ted Cruz and his boosters on the right a vote on the doomed strategy they’ve been demanding. Assuming the defund Obamacare bill passes the House — not a given!— it’ll be extremely revealing to watch Senate Republicans figure out what to do with it, and hear what they say when it inevitably fails.

President Obama's masterful job on Syria

What President Obama and Secretary of State Kerry accomplished they did with Words. Just words. They took a situation in which 100,000 had died and 2 million people had been displaced and turned into refugees from 2 years of constant warfare while the World kind of ignored it and they brought it forefront to the World Stage.

And by going to Congress, President Obama brought it to the forefront of every American's mind.

All it took was words. At this point what have we lost? Nothing! We've had a two weeks worth of debating and recognition that something must be done about Syria and Assad.

And to go even further, by involving Russia, which in 2005 purchased 80% of Syria's National Debt, we allowed them to save face and get world stage credit for Diplomacy. Additionally, since the bulk of Syria's Oil goes to the European Union Market we didn't intrude and and blunder about like the Blinded Cyclops of the Odyssey, as the US increasingly came to be seen under the misadministration of the Bush/Cheney Regime.

Now, it's very possible that President Obama wanted to use military force in Syria and the circumstances are working against him but, unless the person wants to produce some evidence they're claiming to be mind readers.

President Obama just showed every American what skillful World Diplomacy looks like.

The Obama administration’s brilliant strategy to keep us out of Syria

The Obama administration's strategy to cool the country on this war without expressly backing away from the president's red lines has been brilliant, Hill aides say (just look at the polls showing overwhelming opposition!). If they are going to go to war, their efforts to goad Congress into writing a punitively narrow authorization of force that sharply limits any potential for escalation have worked beautifully.

Obama Wins 11th Dimensional Chess Match: Agreement with Russia to Remove Syrian Chemical Weapons

There are still a lot of caveats, despite my exuberant title. But if the agreement holds, President Obama will, without question, have emerged with yet another foreign policy triumph. Rather than a missile strike designed to make clear that Syria should never again use chemical weapons, we have an agreement that will make sure that Syria has no chemical weapons to use. And it will be done without the use of force, with all of its unforeseeable consequences.

So clever to repeat the same thing all your other stooges are saying. Aaron is too old to be his son. All it proves is that background checks need to be done and that even when people are armed they can't prevent these tragedies. Go ahead blame it on video games like you're being told to but a video game has never killed anyone guns Have.

12 Oversight Committe Democrats Flee Benghazi Hearing Before Family Members Testify
September 19, 2013
A dozen Democrats left Thursday’s House Oversight Committee hearing on the Benghazi attacks and did not hear testimony from family members of those murdered last September.
According to Frederick Hill, spokesman for Oversight Committee chairman Darrell Issa (R., Calif.) 14 Democrats were present during the hearing’s first panel, which included testimony from ambassador Thomas Pickering and admiral Michael Mullen, the chair and vice chair of the Accountability Review Board, the body that investigated the attacks.
When the second panel began, however, Issa tweeted a picture showing a Democratic desertion. Only Representatives Jackie Speier (Calif.) and ranking member Elijah Cummings (Md.) stayed for the second panel to hear testimony from Patricia Smith, mother of Sean Smith, an information management officer, and Charles Woods, father of Navy SEAL Tyrone Woods.

It would be hard to listen to those people knowing that there has been no inquiries, no hearings, no committees and no family testimony from any of the dozens of people killed in in the 13 embassy and consulate attacks that happened under Bush. Such disrespect for all of those families. Here are the attacks conveniently ignored by the Benghazi tea baggers:
