Barack Obama, our next President

figure this....
It’s no surprise, after losing a second time to Barack Obama, that the right is engaged in a furious debate over the future of the Republican Party.
But it’s quickly degenerating into a mudfight.
“Conservatism is a racket for a lot of people to get very, very rich,” declares Joe Scarborough on MSNBC.“With no thought of winning elections.”
“It may be that major parts of American conservatism have become such a racket that a kind of refounding of the movement as a cause is necessary,” says William Kristol, editor of The Weekly Standard.
What’s going on here? Is this simply the venting of prominent media folks who are tired of seeing their side taken to the cleaners? Or have they concluded that the talk-show/fundraising culture that powers the GOP has become more interested in feathering its nest than electing Republicans?
Just two years ago, the GOP captured the House, the Tea Party was ascendant, and the rank and file had every reason to believe that Obama would be a one-termer. Now the reelected president, having vanquished Mitt Romney, is all but dictating terms on averting the fiscal cliff. No wonder the right seems to be undergoing a collective nervous breakdown.
Newt Gingrich sounded less than confident on Meet the Press when the talk turned to Hillary Clinton running for president in 2016.“The Republican Party today is incapable of competing at that level,” said the man who proved incapable of beating Romney.
Scarborough’s analysis on Morning Joe:“You have a lot of people running around, saying harsh things that sell books and push ratings and lose elections.”
And those who try to promote a more compassionate brand of conservatism, says the former Florida congressman, are “thrown to the side because they don’t sound enough like Glenn Beck or a blogger.” He described these adversaries as “cowards” and “bullies” who won’t back off unless “you punch them in the face.”
Kristol, who has committed the apostasy of saying the GOP should stop protecting a bunch of millionaires from tax hikes, describes the conservative movement as being “in deep disarray.”
He’s also in a spat with The Wall Street Journal editorial page, which took a shot at Kristol (without naming him):“Various Beltway sages want Republicans to say never mind, we were only kidding, tax rates don’t matter to the economy. So because Mitt Romney lost, Republicans in Congress are supposed to repudiate their core economic principles.”
The Journal says that House Republicans still have leverage, and that if we slide off the fiscal cliff and everyone’s taxes go up on Jan. 1, the GOP will still have the clout to negotiate a deal with Obama, who may fear that trench warfare will ruin his final term. Kristol responds with an obvious counter-argument: that if House Republicans block legislation to restore tax breaks to 98 percent of Americans in a last-ditch attempt to protect the richest 2 percent,“it will be they, and they alone, insisting on higher taxes.” Not a great position to be defending in 2014.

so while liberals are having a great year, conservative are having a nervous breakdown.

The fact that you cannot spell constitution is probably a clue, not to mention the idiotic argument that you posed.
However in an effort to education the dim:
2nd Amendment to the Constitution
A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, THE RIGHT OF THE PEOPLE TO KEEP AND BEAR ARMS, SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED.
Indeed; it really IS that stupid.....

<quoted text>America needs to get rid of all these guns. In countries where guns are banned, gun crimes are practically nonexistent. Most Americans agree that President Obama needs to step up to the plate and get rid of all these guns.
Switzerland, where every citizen goes armed, has the lowest crime rates in the world. The countries of which you speak, are dictatorships for the most part. We don't do that here.

If you don't like guns don't own one.
If you don't like your neighbor owning a gun, move away from him.

I hear Singapore and Malaysia are lovely - but don't spit in the street.

The GOP didn't just lose the election but also its bearings. It has no coherent program for opposing President Obama—no concept for taxes or debt or immigration or even foreign affairs, other than to say that Obama is a bungler. At a moment when the unemployment rate has fallen to 7.7 percent and Obama's hand has again been strengthened in negotiating with the GOP, it's not a message that will appeal to any but the already-converted. The GOP is a party that's in search of a renewed political program, or at least it should be.

Dayshavoo all over again!! Teachers in Michigan call in sick to protest right- to –work bill!! We’ve seen these same tactics used in Chicago, Wisconsin if anyone still thinks it’s about education is delusional it’s simply about Power!!

The former NEA top lawyer Bob Chanin speaking to NEA members reveals the attitude and the arrogance of Unions!! Quote:

Despite what some among us would like to believe it is not because of our creative ideas. It is not because of the merit of our positions. It is not because we care about children and it is not because we have a vision of a great public school for every child. NEA and its affiliates are effective advocates because we have power!!

Homer would never spit on the street, well unless I had eaten something that disagreed with my taste buds and there wasn't a patch of grass around. Naturally spitting on the street is much better thab spitting on the sidewalk. However I will pee in the woods behind a tree as opposed to the street, sidewalk or the afformentioned grass.
