Barack Obama, our next President

The Republican Party Has Taken A Big Step Forward
You may not have noticed, but many of the leaders in the Republican Party have shifted their focus recently and started proposing substantive policy agendas.
This intellectual resurgence is still in its infancy stage, but after nearly five years of obstruction, this shift towards a positive policy platform is an important first step for the reform conservative movement.
It began in September with Sen. Mike Lee's (R-Utah) plan to reform that tax code, which focused on expanding the child tax credit and ensuring that it is available to all parents. Lee also unveiled a prison reform bill that would allow judges leniency in mandatory minimum sentences under certain conditions and would cut some drug-related mandatory minimums in half.
Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wisc.) crafted the budget deal with Sen. Patty Murray (D-Wash.) over intense opposition from tea party groups and the conservative base. The agreement relaxed some of sequestration both this year and in 2015. He is also planning on releasing an antipoverty agenda sometime later this year, as well as potentially a health care reform proposal.
A few weeks ago, Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) unveiled his own antipoverty agenda that would create a Flex Fund that would transfer lump sump payments to the states and let them use the money as they see fit. It would also turn the earned income tax credit (EITC) into a wage subsidy so that married couples can take more advantage of it.
Yesterday, Sens. Tom Coburn (R-Okla.), Richard Burr (R-N.C.) and Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) unveiled a new health reform plan that is the most comprehensive, realistic replacement to the Affordable Care Act that any Republican has introduced in years.
All of these proposals have good and bad ideas. Most of them are just raw frameworks and need much more detail before we can judge them. But they are all positive platforms that at least attempt to solve real problems.
That has been missing from the Republican Party since Obama took office.
Congressional Republicans stuck to repealing Obamacare, rather than outlining a replacement. They never proposed a different jobs plan. On middle class wages and poverty, there was nothing. In Congress, their goal was not to put forward legitimate platforms, but to oppose everything that President Obama and the Democratic Party put forward.
"If you’re in the minority, you’re not going to get your plans through," said James Pethokoukis, the economics columnist-blogger for the American Enterprise Institute. "The best you can do is either change the plans of the majority or try to block those plans."
Republicans chose the latter strategy and unwaveringly stuck to it. Now, that's changed.

so someone figured out that obstructionism won't work. took long enough.
Ryan's previous budget bill was shot down by his own party because even they knew it wasn't workable.

Sometimes two slaps upside their heads actually does work!

Most are too young to remember the Jimmy "peanut head" Carter days. 18% mortgage rates, double digit inflation, high unemployment, and every military event a disasterous debacle.3
I see the status quo for the TAX-O-CRATS contining under this new administration. The Change MORE TAXES on the working family.
Also amazing that Virginian's intentionally voted for a Senator, who as Governor raised taxes highest on Virginian's than any Republican Governor ever.

... and put on steroids after the Democrats traded their support for the war in Iraq in exchange for the Republicans giving them no effective oversight, in spite of the Director of OFHEO testifying that Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac were already keeping fraudulent books to hide the CRA disaster as early as 2003, ultimately collapsing our economy after two years of oversight by Democrats Dodd and Frank, from whom we heard a constant stream of lies (gosh! Democrats lying!) right up to the collapse.
Yep. Capitalism really did screw CRA!!!

You have a very strange perception of "abuse". If my husband were to go out and have a one night stand, I would not feel "abused" nor question my self-worth. You see, I don't equate sex with love. The two are very different. IMO, men who cheat on their wives use sex to relieve tension. To relax. It has nothing to do with love. "Sex without love is hollow. It's meaningless."
Would I accept it as a regular feature of my marriage? I doubt it but, having never been in that situation, I can't say anything with any certainty. I think Hillary is a very strong woman who knows what is important in her life and no one has the right to judge her. Especially someone like you.
Hillary is a politician, I have every right to judge the doormat. She is not a role model for abused women. So according to you, Bill Clinton was just going to the workout center??? ROTFLMAO--you are a stitch. And Hillary is an abused woman and liking it.

You're correct. The Republican Party is fracutured. Real Americans are tired of the Democrats wearing RINO costumes running the Republican Party, and they're going to fight against any Democrat helping destroy this country.
By the way, did you read the WSJ article over the weekend talking about how the RINOs plan to lay low until all the challenges have been declared, then help the Democrats sneak amnesty for illegal aliens through Congress after the deadline for challengers to declare for the Senate and House seats?
What am I asking. You don't read.
So... why don't you 'conservatives' create your own party son?

Why do you have to leach off of others (ironically) to make your cases?

bin laden was dreaming of his 72 virgins. "real dumb" is dreaming about a good piece of tail. They are on the same wave length. "real dumb" honestly believes that the muslim killers are under control and no longer present a threat.

All we can hope for is that most liberals on here will realize how government is supposed to work again and will appreciate an economy that works under a free market again and that everyone is better off when government is not forcing itself upon us and taking more of our money again once Democrats are no longer in power and the left has no choice but to rethink they've been wrong.
Then I'll know them again and I'll be a happy camper again.
But I'm sure many liberals are lovely people aside from their politics.
And really didn't mean to offend anyone personally today...just their politics...in the hope they will see the light.
