Tea Party group apologizes for dressing up Karl Rove as a Nazi
The Tea Party fancies itself as an antidote to slick, professional politics as usual, but they might need a media consultant. Bad enough when one faction posted an appalling video suggesting Hillary Clinton being, uh, pleasured. Now the Tea Party Patriots organization is apologizing for sending out a fundraising email which linked to a picture of Karl Rove in an SS uniform. Rove's new Super PAC aims to fund more mainstream candidates, and the TPP email decries "'Republicans' like Rove" for calling "Tea Party members 'racists,''bigots,''paranoid' and even political 'underbrush.'" Rove has accepted the apology.
Don't you love when the Party of Two eat their own...lmao on this one. That sounds like the teabagger we know and they deny. Just too funny. Meanwhile the Dems win elections. Can't wait for 2014 to watch these clowns again. Quite amusing in their little Paul Revere costumes carrying their hate, racist, gloom and doom signs, just like in 2010. Yeah, you repukes are tripping.

You repukes jump on that one. I am tired obviously from being out enjoying life. 2014 election will be major fun with you twisted bunch. If the guys in the white coats don't come and get you first. Or maybe those guys in the black suits that had to visit your lunatic, draft dodging has been rock star.
Tootles, little lemmings and the queen sheep/goat. Change a few names and register, then come back pretending to be someone else. How transparent. You know who you are. rotflmao @ you
It is derived from lemmings who literally follow each other off of cliffs and fall to their death for no other reason than the lemming in front of them did it.(or the baaaaing sheep/goat queen) lol

You have got to be kidding? She has already been fired from one job and now you think she is fit to be President? We already have one joke in the White House.

You all are talking of the free cell phones, well these younger people whom the government is using our tax dollars to pay for them to go to school is also getting up to $1500 to help them fix their car so they can go to a job or to school. I know of one girl that used the money to put all new tires on her car. I had to help pay for it and I can't even afford to put tires on my own car.

A draft report from the US Congress shows that Chinese cyberwarfare is a growing issue that leaves the United States vulnerable in a very serious way. Not only must the US face the fact that it is beholden to Chinese manufacturing and the growing might of Chinese consumers, but it must now also admit that its time as the world’s only cyber superpower may be drawing to an end.
The draft report, which was obtained by Bloomberg, contains some very interesting information. The key quote in the report is “Chinese penetrations of defense systems threaten the U.S. military’s readiness and ability to operate.” A Northrop Grumman report from March has a similar conclusion about the ability of China to disrupt the US military if there was a conflict over Taiwan. This growing evidence is both scary and incredibly fascinating.
The vast majority of the attacks over the last year have been “straightforward” zero-day exploits. The sheer amount of man power available to the Chinese appears to be the issue at hand. Even if most of the attempts at infiltrating security networks fail, the occasional breakthrough is enough to potentially severely compromise the US. While most of the detected attacks are aimed at gathering information (espionage), this is a clear indication that China cannot be ignored. While its total number of security experts is small, the report indicates that the Chinese military’s leadership is developing ways to work smarter and harder. Think how powerful these “cyber militias” will be when they have both raw numbers and expertise on their side.
This needs to serve as a wake-up call, not just to the US, but for every country with significant national security infrastructure. The Chinese military is continuing to enhance its cyberwarfare branch, and anyone with political and economic relations with China could be in the crosshair. Not only do US security systems need to be reinforced, but our counterintelligence needs better funding and training. We need to take China’s willingness to dedicate massive amounts of manpower to espionage into account when we’re budgeting our defense spending.

Sorry for butting into your debate but couldn't you come up with your own username instead of copying CountryBumpkin's? He's had it for years.

isn't it obvious that when oblamer said he was going to fundamentally transform America, that in many ways he has, including cultivating a culture of blame and no accountability,
he has blamed so many people for his failures that it is now common place for his sheeple to do so,
Now there is a Topix thread dedicated to just that, its titled Barack Obama - The Blamer In Chief, LOLOL
sequester - his idea and implementation - now Congress fault
refuses to provide a budget - his responsibility - blames repubs
he spends 6 trillion $- Bushs fault
Benghazi - Rices fault
Obama is blamer in chief
#81997 Feb 21, 2013
Maybe you should add another sock to your topix file and head on over to Akron's topix. Most people don't bounce from state to state spreading hate, racism, gloom and doom like you nutjobs. You can start all the topix threads you want to satisfy your faux box propaganda. It won't change anything...he is still a SECOND term PRESIDENT voted in by the majority of AMERICANS. Oh and wait, they still approve of him from the latest polls, minus the faux box shows of course. haha Speaks volumes.
At least all the polls still show the President's approval rating is still high except of course for the faux box poll. Imagine that. hahaha

Polls show Republicans sinking on key issues
Polls show Obama with a firm lead over Republicans on immigration, gun control and the budget
According to two new polls, most Americans are in favor of President Obama’s approach to key issues like the budget, gun control and immigration.
A USA Today/Pew Research poll released Thursday shows Obama with a strong lead over Republicans in Congress on gun policies (45-39 percent), the budget deficit (45-38 percent), immigration (50-33 percent) and even climate change (47-26 percent
“On many of the issues, President Obama has staked out positions that seem to be closer to the public’s thinking than the positions Republicans have staked out,” said Michael Dimock, director of the Pew Research Center for the People & the Press, in a statement on the poll.“The challenge for him is in building the public’s sense of immediacy on some of these issues, particularly on climate change and guns.”
In addition, the poll finds that only 22 percent of Americans even identify themselves as Republicans, almost a record low.
A Bloomberg poll from Wednesday had similar findings, with Obama’s approval ratings reaching a 3-year high at 55 percent, while just 35 percent have a favorable view of Republicans.
Americans by 49 percent to 44 percent believe Obama’s proposals for government spending on infrastructure, education and alternative energy are more likely to create jobs than Republican calls to cut spending and taxes to build business confidence and spur employment.
To add to Republican troubles: 43 percent of Americans blame Republicans for what’s wrong in Washington, compared with 34 percent who blame Obama.
The repukes/teabaggers are just SINKING period. Especially to the lowest in their warped dark lttle minds. Read em and weep loesrs. Dems rule.
Get use to it.

Accepting his party's nomination, Governor Bush promised to restore "honor and dignity" to the White House. But as events continue to show, a more accurate - and ironic - mantra for the lawless Bush White House would be "no controlling legal authority."
At the time it was delivered, Bush's acceptance speech at the 2000 Republican National Convention in Philadelphia was an arrogant, deceitful broadside against the Clinton/Gore years. But the very words Bush used to tar Al Gore with the blight of the Lewinsky scandal may now constitute the epitaph for the Bush presidency:
"So when I put my hand on the Bible, I will swear to not only uphold the laws of our land, I will swear to uphold the honor and dignity of the office to which I have been elected, so help me God."
That hateful address, of course, was filled with exactly the kind of lies and taunts - the smallness - that came to define George W. Bush.
His false charges about American military readiness ("Not ready for duty, sir!"), his long since abandoned philosophy when it comes to using American force ("the cause must be just, the goal must be clear, and the victory must be overwhelming"), his smearing of Al Gore that foreshadowed his own legacy ("he now leads the party of Franklin Delano Roosevelt, but the only thing he has to offer is fear itself") and his obscene claim to be a "uniter" ("I will not attack a part of this country because I want to lead the whole of it"), all were in keeping with the dark Bush character.
Bush broke all of these promises. But his original sin, from which all other of his crimes and errors flow, is his pledge to usher in new period of higher ethical standards as part of a "responsibility era." Bush, who previously sneered at Gore's "no controlling legal authority" defense of his 1990's Buddhist temple fundraising efforts, raised the ethical bar further that October:
"In my administration, we will ask not only what is legal but what is right. Not just what the lawyers allow, but what the public deserves. In my administration, we'll make it clear there is a controlling legal authority of conscience."
Eights years later and Bush's 2000 standard of "not only what is legal but what was right" is in tatters. Bush's own Justice Department issued a report which concluded that Monica Goodling, the former White House liaison for Attorney General Alberto Gonzales, violated federal law and DOJ policy by discriminating against job applicants who weren't faithful Republicans or conservative activists.
And that's just the beginning. Plamegate, the Libby pardon, the Abramoff affair, doctoring scientific reports, the end of habeas corpus, detainee torture, the politically-motivated firings of U.S. attorneys, illegal domestic surveillance, the theory of the unitary executive and the unprecedented assertion of executive privilege all show a President committed to doing neither what is legal nor right. And then, of course, there's Iraq.
How fitting then that Bush's would-be Republican successor John McCain, the man who promised to run a "respectful" campaign, chose to launch a wave of attack ads and character assassination against his Democratic rival.
Americans can't erase the Bush presidency, but they aren’t condemned to repeat it.
