If Republicans were for true reforms they would also cut the farm subsidies and oil subsidies, but this type of corporate welfare is OK with the current crop of Republicans.

They only worry about the top 1 percent. If they spoke to the issues of cutting entitlements AND cutting corporate welfare, and stop whining about the 1 percent, and the fact that the ubber rich may have a little increase in taxes, they may have a chance.

Rand Paul wants to be the new Strom Thurmond and filibuster when he has a disagreement. It reminds me of a temper tantrum.

Pardon me, I just could not hold back my laughter on that line,(snicker). I just love to hear stupid klanjigs and Fox News whine about why their p.o.s. candidates cannot beat Mr. Obama. By the way, come 2016, plan on losing yet another general election when the next Democratic nominee will be a White female named Hillary, LOFL!No need to mention her last name because you racist Republiklans are constantly having nightmares about her.

If Obama is so great, why can't he govern? Why can't he do more than Obamacare which Congress is not going to pay for and gay's in the military. Just what is his problem since you think he such a great little fairy queen?

Hillary is not moderate enough to win the swing vote. Obama barely won with what about 51% or so...and he also got the help of moderate voters and independents as well as some Republicans who didn't want to vote for Romney.
Hillary would never get that same support among the middle of the fence voters. Some of her own Democrats wouldn't even vote for her, myself included. It would be a bad move in my opinion. Just like throwing the election.

The type that voted for Obama would o back into slavery if given the chance. It is like that. They think life was easier on the plantation. When they got old and sick, master, had to send them to the doctor and pay their doctor's bill. The Republicans came along and messed all that up. And they have been begging for Obamacare ever since.

Right Big Bad John? Or whatever stupid thing you call yourself?

The problem with that obviously is that due to our current trade agreements if you raise taxes on corporations and the rich they will take their corporations (and jobs) to South America or China.

Thank the Republicans AND also Clinton/Bush/Obama for getting us into this mess. You tax them, they move to China and take their jobs with them. It's a lose/lose situation at this point.

They had lower tax rates under Bush tax cuts and they still took the jobs away due to greed, so it really will take something akin to repealing NAFTA and GATT to save jobs.

I remember seeing an exit poll from CNN that said 9% of Republicans who voted chose to vote for Obama and 20% of people who described themselves as conservative voted for Obama. Without those votes Obama probably wouldn't have won. Also a lot of Republicans simply didn't vote at all.

No way Hillary would get that same support from Republicans or conservatives and I don't think many would choose to not vote if she ran. They would probably show up in record numbers just to vote against her. She's just too far left. Too polarizing.

Hillary is polarizing and will be viewed as Billary, but who will the Republicans run that can effectively debate her and win the election?

Farther left than DumBama? You have to be kidding. Nobody is more left than him, and he unfortunately won two elections.

As much as I dislike her politics, I will say that had she beat DumBama, our country would be way better off today than we are now. She spent 8 years in the White House and had to learn a few things while her husband was President; one of which is working with the other side.

I don't think she has much of a chance if we continue this direction with her former boss. Remember that when ObamaCare kicks in full force, it will send our economy into a downwards spiral. Voters will associate her with DumBama just as they have with McCain and Bush.

Who? Who knows. In 2004 if i'd told you that a black man named Barak Obama would win the 2008 election you'd have called me a lunatic, right? Didn't see that one coming. I think the Republicans need an entirely new candidate and one that is more moderate than right.

So in 3-4 years its hard to say. To be honest Romney probably would have beaten Hillary in 2012. Again look at the votes Obama gathered from conservatives and moderates. Hillary would have never gotten that kind of support outside her own party. Certainly not 20% of conservative votes. Probably very few moderate voters either.

She's so far to the left that she couldn't win a debate anyway. Also winning debates really doesn't indicate who will win an election. For example, 1992 Clinton/Bush/Perot debate. Clinton and Bush debating the good that would come from NAFTA and Ross Perot flat out told them what would really happen "that giant sucking sound of jobs leaving this country" Perot was dead on correct. Clinton/Bush were dead wrong. Did it help Perot any? Not a bit. Of course Perot didn't have a major party backing him either so that didn't help him either. But he was right and it didn't matter at all.

That's exactly what we ran last two elections. Didn't work out for us so well.

It was greed, but who was it that was so greedy?

The US consumer will not buy American products. We are plagued with cheap. We would rather have five low quality items than one American made quality item. Businesses respond to consumer demands. It's why Wal-Mart is the number one store in America today.

Businesses heavily rely on investors. Sure, we can have businesses in the US that pay the floor sweeper $24.00 per hour. That company would have about a 1.5% return. Do you want that company in your IRA portfolio? Your investment company would be an utter failure.

It isn't the CEO's, it isn't greedy businesses. It's us, the consumer.

About two years ago, I went to one of my favorite fast food places--KFC. I was met with closed doors with a sign that said out of business. So I went to the next nearest KFC. That too was closed. So I dug around on the internet to find out WTF was going on. As it turns out, many of the KFC outlets were not making a profit. They moved most of their operations to China where they are doing a booming business, and they're not even selling much chicken.

Then I reflected on my latest visits to those restaurants. There were very few people in the store. They were put out of business through competition from Popeye's and Church's. Americans are so cheap, that we won't pay the price of a good meal from an American staple such as KFC anymore.

I did find a KFC near where I work that is still open. I went there two weeks ago. Again, nobody but one other customer and myself in the place. So I'm sure it's bound to close as well.

You mean after they allowed DumBama to raise taxes on the wealthiest Americans just a few months ago? I guess DumBama is one guy who can't tax and spend enough.

Funny how he's okay with cutting SS and Medicare--the programs working people put into, but never cuts in Medicaid, HUD, food stamps or welfare.

What is the GOP rebuttal other than just saying "no"?

Contrary to popular belief, Medicare has become a welfare program for people that have never worked or paid taxes in this country, as long as they are 65 and have lived in the US for 5 years. I wish it was based solely on work, as it should be.

His new budget does cut Medicaid, supposedly $19 billion.

The traditional welfare people blather on about, the AFDC and food stamps, has been cut since there are time limits for the cash payments and additional children. Wasn't this the big hoopla last year?

The politicians will outdo themselves to cater to the Seniors that like their largesse at the expense of younger Americans. And that is what most of the crying will be about, since Seniors actually show up to vote.

So HUD is not being cut, sounds like another issue for them to keep the Seniors voting for them for keep the low income senior housing?

Whose ox is being gored in the budget?

The GOP had a charismatic candidate in JC WAtts, but alas he had too many scandals.

Will it take a similar candidate, sans scandals, to revive the hopeless and tired GOP?
