Mitch McTurtle setting precedent in the Senate by filibustering a Cabinet Nominee.

The Republican "savior" Marco Rubio gives State of the Union response to a speech the President didn't give, basically laying out all the positions Romney just lost on.

22 Republican Senators(including Rubio) vote NO on the Defense of Women Act.

Wow, they REALLY learned NOTHING from the election.

It is unbelieveable how dumb they are. They keep believing and keep acting as if they have won! They are clueless. Blocking this nomination for now is just usual dramatics. They know they will vote, and he will win nomination. America is sick of their bullsh*T and they are digging a big hole for midterm elections.

The Republican Party finally understands they can't win a Presidential election without the votes of Latinos and African Americans.
The problem is, they will never be able to learn how to attract those voters, they can't get any further than....."we really need those votes".
They need to become more progressive, but they've done such an amazing job of demonizing progressives, they will never embrace their ideas. Sad.

ONLY 49%???? THAT'S hard to to believe. I thought it was more. They are an angry bunch. The guy could cure poverty, homelessness and world hunger and they'd be pissed at him.

Hillary Clinton said it perfectly shortly after his first election....."If he walked on water they would accuse him of not knowing how to swim"

It's all thinly veiled racism. Sure, not all Republicans are racists.But, these days all racists are Republicans. Lindsey Graham (a p.o.s Republitard himself) said last week, " We can not generate enough angry white guys to win an election." Joe Scarborough said recently " The G.O.P. leadership needs to punch these guys right in the face."(referring to the right wing medis pundits). The Party of stupid is dying an ugly death.

I think you have that wrong by 180 degrees. It is Progressives who have successfully defined conservative Republicans as racist or as "the party of no". Their advertising campaign is a model for Madison Avenue. It's actually the same campaign that Hitler ran on his way to power. Vilfiy the rich, a chicken in every pot, a car in every garage. Hitler was a Social Democrat.

Regardless what anyone says, this was a close election and not the mandate that the President and his cohorts act like it was. They are smart. They are striking while the iron is hot because they know that this is is a house of cards they are building that will collapse in time. Their goal I think is to ram throght as much progressive legislation and make enough partisan appointments so that when the collapse does come, there will be no going back.

Regardless OF what you say......you mentioned Hitler first, so you lose this argument immediately(godwin's law). Thanks for playing.

You can't just discount a comment because I've used Hitler's name. The appropriate response would be to tell me how my opinion is wrong if I am. Historically, what part of what I said about Hitler's party affiliation and his strategy for rising to power is wrong? How does it differ from the strategy being used by the Obama administration and the left wing in Congress?

You response is just another popular tactic of the left. It does nothing but obscure the truth.

"Goodwin's Law" is not a universally held truth either. Just because one man, Mike Goodwin, said something does not make it so.

Your backward and ridiculous diatribe is SO full of nonsense, the time required to discount it item by item made it too cumbersome a task yesterday(i do have a life)but today being Presidents Day(thanks Barack)I do have some leisure time.
1. Republicans,"the party of no" On inauguration day 2009 a group of 18 Republican House and Senate members met at The Caucus Room Restaurant in D.C. and plotted to block any and all moves this President tried to make, and other than the first few months while the Democrats had a super majority in the Senate, this Evil, Anti-American group was quite successful. During LBJ's 6 years as Senate Majority Leader, he dealt with 1(ONE) Filibuster. During Harry Reid's 6 years as Senate Majority Leader he dealt with 386 filibusters. And as far as Racism and Sexism goes? Sorry no need to defend that one, the evidence speaks for itself, how many long voting lines did you see in White middle class neighborhoods? How many Women's health issue bills were voted on during this session of Congress?
2. "A Chicken in every Pot" was Herbert Hoover. Sorry wrong "H" (that was just dumb and lazy)
3. A Close Election. Actually Barack Obama won with more than 50% of the Vote, Twice.
In 2004 The Wall Street Journal editorial page insisted Bush/Cheney had a "mandate," arguing, "Never mind the closeness of the electoral vote, this time Mr. Bush easily won the popular vote, the first President to win more than 50% since his father in 1988."
Eight years later, Obama fared even better than Bush in both tallies (electoral votes and popular votes), suggesting, by conservative standards, the president has at least as credible a claim to a mandate.
4. Progressive legislation and Partisan appointments.
The Legislation that this President will try to pass, will be precisely what he campaigned on, so it will be the will of the People(regardless of the fact that you are not in agreement)
Thus far his "partisan appointments" have included, John Carey as Secretary of State, who Lindsey Graham, John McCain and Kelly Iott were tripping all over each other to get the President to choose.
And Chuck Hagle who was a Former Republican Senator and decorated Vietnam Vet. The partisanship regarding his nomination is GARBAGE.
Linsdey Graham and John McCain want more information about "Bengazi"????Wouldn' t that have been more pertinent during John Carey's hearing, being that he was nominated to replace Hillary Clinton as Secretary of State?
Face facts, Your Republican Party and those who represent it Nationally are in a state of disarray, they allowed the far Right Radical fringe(Tea Party) to become too powerful, and they dragged the Party drastically to the right.

You seem like a reasonable man. Although your "Nazi" reference is beyond the pale. I would be glad to take the time to discuss the Nazi party and Obama, as well. If you would do me one little favor. Just go to this link and watch a funny little video of Lewis black talking about this very thing. You might get a good laugh, if nothing else.http://www.funnyordie.com /embed_videos/f1c10b0077/lewis -black-explains-glenn-beck-s-n azi-tourette-s (or just google Lewis black on Glenn beck and go to the youtube video)

In ten years no one will admit to having anything to do with the Tea Party. BTW that Lewis Black video on Glenn Beck and his "Nazi Tourete syndrome, is priceless is priceless.

Godwins law applies to labeling someone a Nazi, not calling them Hitler or pointing out the fact that the same tactics were used. Ya know like Democrats have been doing since 9/11. It's called propaganda and is surely used today. As a matter of fact a bill recently passed that makes it legal for propaganda to be used against American citizens. Do you think they are using that to push a conservative agenda? I think not. I don't think there has been a conservative piece of legislation passed since 2001, yet you complain it is unfair that the progressive agenda is demonized.
