Barack Obama, our next President

"The road ahead will be long. Our climb will be steep," Obama cautioned. Young and charismatic but with little experience on the national level, Obama smashed through racial barriers and easily defeated ... Read more

Vicious Rift on the Right

n the wake of the ill-fated attempt to use a government shutdown and the threat of default to force Barack Obama to defund the Affordable Care Act, conservative activists are fighting among themselves about whether this strategy, masterminded by Sen Ted Cruz (R-TX) and initially opposed by many leading Republicans, was wise.

The infighting has grown tense in some quarters. On a list serv informally called the Repeal Coalition List, comprising about 200 leading conservative activists and writers, one prominent right winger recently compared those who forced the government shutdown to terrorists.

In an email reviewed by The Daily Beast and dated October 17, Ryan Ellis, the director of tax policy for Grover Norquist’s Americans for Tax Reform, declared,“the Repeal Coalition was hijacked by Defund terrorists. They flew the plane in a new direction and assured us that x, y, and z would follow. Not only did they not follow, but in fact a, b, and c happened.”

When more liberal voices, such as Chris Matthews and Al Gore, have compared Cruz and his cohorts to terrorists, they’ve come under attack from conservatives.

Ellis declined to comment about the email, saying that the list is private. Publicly, he has expressed outrage about Cruz’s so-called Defund strategy. In a recent piece for the Daily Caller, Ellis wrote,“Much like the Vietnam War, things didn’t go quite as planned for the self-appointed ‘best and the brightest.’”[] In a recent tweet, he described Tea Party activists as “freakin retarded.”

Ellis’s comments are especially surprising because of his position at Americans for Tax Reform, a group that fought tooth and nail not only against Obamacare, but against almost all major federal social welfare programs. The organization started by Norquist is a forerunner to the Tea Party. Its strategy to get all elected Republicans to sign a pledge to never raise taxes is very much in keeping with the ethos of the Tea Party to shrink the federal government by depriving it of revenue.

It undermines our trustworthiness as allies.
You still haven't figured out that Obama and his elite inner circle think they're the smartest ones in the room and everyone else is beneath them - including our allies.
We already know they think that about us.
You're just too blind to see it.
Welcome to the real world Carol. Everybody has always gathered intelligence from everybody else since the dawning of civilization. How many personnel in various embassies in Washington are actually intelligence agents under some title like "commercial attaché"? When something like this gets leaked then countries will make the obligatory protests but in the end everybody realizes that that's the way the game is played.

NEW YORK (CNNMoney)
McDonald's is tweaking its fabled Dollar Menu to try and rise out of its sales slump.
McDonald's (MCD, Fortune 500) renamed the menu Dollar Menu & More. Some of the items will still cost a dollar, but other items will cost more.

It sent this tweet from its official account on Wednesday: "Dollar Menu fans, don't worry...our new Dollar Menu & More will offer many options that are still $1 and some new choices too!"
The new menu will officially roll out on Nov. 4, according to a McDonald's spokeswoman, who said it will include some new items, which she declined to identify.
McDonald's could use a revenue boost. Last week, the fast food giant reported disappointing same-store sales, up less than 1% worldwide for the quarter compared to the prior year.

The company fared particularly badly outside of the U.S., with same-store sales dropping 1.4% in the Middle East, Africa and the Asia/Pacific region. Operating income plunged 12% in China, Japan and Australia because of an "ongoing challenging environment."
In test markets like New York City, a similar menu called the Extra Value Menu & More is already available. A worker at a Manhattan restaurant featuring an Extra Value Menu & More said it's been on offer since at least February, when he started working there.
Related: The real budgets of McDonald's workers
At that restaurant, the following items are still available for $1: two slices of apple pie, two bags of apple slices, and a "cone" (presumably with ice cream in it, but the menu didn't specify.)
Most of the other items cost a dollar and change, including the McDouble and McChicken, which each go for $1.69, and the four-piece McNugget, which costs $1.59.
The prices climb higher from there; the double cheeseburger costs $2.19 and the McFlurry is priced at $2.89. The most expensive item on the Extra Value Menu & More was the 20-piece McNugget for $4.99.
Yeah the economy is on fire and there is no inflation! LMAO!!!!

Good Morning again to all my topix friends!!!
As you all can see I have been up all night into the wee small hours maniacally judging your posts and chit-chatting back and forth to myself using many of my favorite sockpuppets!! A "labor of love" though tiring!! I had to change my depends three times last night but it was worth every diaper as it was challenging and exciting!!
I and most of my sockpuppets will be on board all day today making idiotic and mentally deranged comments, the sole purpose being to harass and feebly attempt to insult the legitimate posters who use this forum. I will also be judging your posts all day. I plan to be here for the entire day and night with my sockpuppets so get ready for an all out judgit blowout shitshow!!!! Please JOIN in!! I will give you a head start if needed.
I enjoy spending the day here giving out judgits to anyone who doesn't agree with me and I like to think I have full control of this thread!!! I consider it "mine"!!!!!!
PLEASE join me!
Warm and sincerest hugs!!! "Waxman"
PS, another one of my wonderful and very favorite sockpuppets has come forth this morning. We call him "Finkly". Winning!!!!!
Please my dear friends, show him some Topix Love!!
Not telling my doctors about this one either!
As many of my topix friends are aware I have an endless supply of fake ip addresses and topix id's which I use every day of my life that I spend on topix. It helps to pass the time here living on the psych ward in Ct. where I am permanently confined. It keeps me busy and I feel I am doing something worthwhile with all my spare time. My psychiatrists' think it is good therapy and basically harmless. My entire life is spent in a fantasy world and I don't think it shows much compassion when you attempt to humiliate me on this particular delusion.
Please my friends, play along with me. I use fake "ip address's" as I have access to hundreds. You, here on topix, are my only friends, please don't ruin this for me. It's all I've got left.
Hugs, Waxman!!!!!!!!!!

We're not talking about Obama's approval rating which are sitting in the mid 40's. He's not running for reelection so it hardly matters. Nor are we talking about Democrats in Congress, we're talking about the Tea Party sitting at 21% approval rating. The Republicans in Congress aren't doing much better;

She made it abundantly clear how arrogant and partisan Obama's political appointees are. They are not chosen by Obama for their skills and experience in the area they direct, but simply put in place because they meet an extremist political threshold.

Kathleen Slimebelius is no different than Obama's IRS political slut Lois Liar who pled the 5th. Obama's government is as corrupt as the day is long. Democrats have morphed into fascist socialists, plain & simple.

Healthcare.gov forces people to create an account, a self-incrimination surveillance program requiring detailed personal information selling yourself out before you can shop for obamakare.

facebook hates obamacare: Read the hate-filled posts and see ads pandering to blacks, losers, and Hispanics...

https://www.facebook.com/Healthcare.gov...

"Carole Pratt facebook:- I have had my own private policy that I will not be able to afford to keep once the rates triple per the letter I received from Humana. I'm not eligible for "affordable" coverage on the exchange, don't qualify for subsidy. I am living, documented proof this is system will not work for me. No propaganda here."

Addie Cola facebook:- I'm 26 and uninsured and I refuse to sign up for this disaster. October 21 at 1:00pm via mobile

Janet King Beckett facebook:- Again, the Affordable Health Care Act is not for everyone. I found that out when I discovered the BRoNZE plan would cost us $6K each in my family. And that's the bottom of the barrel plan. Good luck y'all!!! We are all screwed because of this stupid government program. Another tax on the middle class!!

It's actually better obama got reelected, look like shit, get all the blame for obamakare and failure for the next 3 years than blaming Romney for sabotage...

If not for obamakare, Ted Cruz and the Tea Party would not have been a great success..

Well, that explains why he finally stopped campaigning after all these years, and will have even more time for golf or really important things--like feminizing the Marine uniforms. Today its the caps, tomorrow he'll order the Marines to wear his trademark Mom Jeans.

And now Republicans should just sit back and watch the fiasco known as Obammycare unfold on the low information voter. Rube Goldberg must have been one of the programmers.
