The Obama's are not getting divorced; you are a victim of the typical righwinger who passes around dirt after dirt every single day to the point where you believe it. You salivate at any hint of scandal; tingling with joy at the possible misfortune of others. You're sick in the head.

what we already know.....

A new study from Princeton spells bad news for American democracy—namely, that it no longer exists.

Asking "[w]ho really rules?" researchers Martin Gilens and Benjamin I. Page argue that over the past few decades America's political system has slowly transformed from a democracy into an oligarchy, where wealthy elites wield most power.

Using data drawn from over 1,800 different policy initiatives from 1981 to 2002, the two conclude that rich, well-connected individuals on the political scene now steer the direction of the country, regardless of or even against the will of the majority of voters.

What's Wrong with the Right
.....Once again, the establishment right takes its marching orders from what the destroyers on the left dictate. The right consistently allows the left to destroy our most effective voices – Sarah Palin is a major example. Unequivocal voices like Palin’s are tarred and smeared, while the right instead offers up weak and meandering fools like John McCain – and stands by him even when he poses with al-Qaida leaders in Syria and insists that they’re “moderates.”
We see many come out in a burst of light, political supernovas like Allen West, Palin, and now Ted Cruz. But we also see the right abandon these same people when the left goes after them like the jackals and the vultures they are. Did the GOP establishment have Palin’s back? What did the GOP establishment do to defend Palin from the attacks by vultures in the media like the affable Eva Braun, aka Katie Couric, and the contemptible Charlie Gibson?
The leaders of the conservative establishment are clearly more comfortable with the weakest and most liberal figures on the right than they are with genuine conservatives. And then they abandon their flavor of the month as soon as the leftist sharks start circling.
This is how the establishment right makes it bones: on the bones of the principled right. This is how the establishment right gets legitimacy: by pandering to the left and selling out the clear, uncompromised voices on the right. Instead of destroying our philosophical enemies in the war of individualism vs. statism, the establishment right trims its message, then trims it some more, desperately hoping to appease leftists and their media lapdogs.
Is it any wonder that we can’t win elections? McCain? Romney? We can’t win until we find our spine.
http://www.americanthinker.com/2014/04/whats_...
so you having trouble finding some spine? though all of this right wing whining about that that can't be changed by right wing whining would lead some to question if you ever had a spine.
Pffft, so the right does not try to operate using one brain like progressives and to you this is a bad thing.

AC/DC guitarist Malcolm Young is suffering from dementia and will likely never play again, the Sydney Morning Herald is reporting.

Reports hinted that the heavy metal legends had planned to retire after learning the truth, but they said in a statement they planned to carry on.

“That is true, Malcolm is sick,” friend Mark Gable told Australian public radio on Wednesday.“From what I understand, and it’s even been confirmed in part by his son Ross (Young), that it would appear Malcolm is unable to perform anymore.

“It’s not just that he is unwell, it’s that it is quite serious. It will constitute that he definitely won’t be able to perform live. He will probably not be able to record.”

Gable said it is unlikely the 61-year-old guitarist will ever play live again.

A family member told the Herald that while the diagnosis remained foggy, YoungÂ’s condition had deteriorated to the point where his loved ones were looking into full-time respite care.

The Herald reported that Young is having difficulty “remembering familiar faces” and is having increasing problems communicating.

“His memory loss is so bad it is consistent with Alzheimer’s or dementia although we do not know that is what it is,” the source told the Herald.“There has been talk about cancer too.”

As for AC/DC calling it quits, the source called retirement talk “pure speculation.” Yet music industry insiders say Young’s brother Angus — who helped him co-found the band in 1973 — believes “Malcolm is the band” and could be irreplaceable.

And there is a precedent for AC/DC replacing ailing — or dead — members. Brian Johnson replaced the band’s beloved frontman, Bon Scott, after the latter’s booze-fuelled death in 1980.

And when Malcolm Young was previously ill, his nephew Stevie replaced him on tour and hardly anyone noticed, the Herald reports.
That not what it said in the national enquirer.

Michelle Obama Divorce Soon? Inside SHOCKING Rumors, President Barack Obama and First Lady Have 'Nastiest White House Fight Ever'
SIGN UP TO RECEIVE THE LATEST NEWS FROM FASHION&STYLE
Michelle and Barack Obama
(Photo : REUTERS/Jonathan Ernst ) Michelle and Barack Obama could be getting a divorce soon because the President is having trouble putting a stop to the First Lady's lavish spending habits, especially after her recent trip to China. Read below about the rumors!
Michelle and Barack Obama may be seeing divorce papers soon as new details from their marriage reveal that the President doesn't have that much of a hold on his First Lady.
According to ShowBizSpy.com , sources said that the political couple had a "major blowout" because of Michelle's recent vacation to China.
"This was a blowout of epic proportions - probably the nasti­est White House fight they've ever had," a Washington, D.C. insider told American tabloid the National Enquirer.
"They were both screaming at one another," the source said. Why? Because "The president was infuriated when advisers told him that they'd added up the costs of all their 'vacations' and China was putting them over the $150 million mark. But he's defenseless to stop Michelle be­cause their marriage has collapsed. She's doing what she wants - and that's seeing the world on the American taxpayers' dime."
So why was the trip so bad?
Well, Michelle took her mother, Marian Robinson, and her daughters Malia and Sasha on March 20 for a planned seven-day, three-city trip to China. They all stayed at a lavish 3,400-square-foot presidential suite at the Beijing Westin hotel, costing $8, 350 per night, which includes 24-hour butler service and a steam room.
"Barack asked Michelle to postpone the trip, but she refused," the insider explained. "Then, when Barack asked why she had to take her mother along, Michelle ripped into him. She screamed that he was 'lucky' that she hadn't left him after that embarrassing 'selfie,' and then she stormed off."
"It's clear to everyone at the White House that Barack has completely lost control of his wife," the source said. "Michelle does whatever she wants and goes wherever she wants. It's as if she's tacked up a map of the world and put pins on all the places she wants to visit. The sad part is that taxpayers are paying for her bucket list."
But it seems that the couple was already having problems because this blowout.
Design & Trend reported that the Obamas' marriage had been deteriorating just after Secret Service agents told the First Lady that her husband has been cheating on her, and that Michelle "will divorce Barack as soon as his presidency is over" in 2016. The two will try to work it out until then to prevent any "catastrophic" consequences.
Do you think Michelle and Barack Obama will get a divorce in 2016? Sound off below!

Frequently Asked Questions

What is The American Conservative?

The American Conservative is a print magazine and daily site for political analysis based in Washington, DC.

What kind of politics?

Well, conservative, but not necessarily in the sense you might be thinking (see Who We Are).

Which kind of conservative?

Authentically conservative–modest, open-minded, and uninterested in partisan chicanery. Our motto is “Ideas over Ideology, Principles over Party.” So much of what passes for conservatism today is wedded to a kind of radicalism—fantasies of global hegemony, economic theories that are utopian and ruinous, and an eagerness to substitute diatribe for debate. TAC is nonpartisan and devoted to the conservative disposition, not the Republican Party. We broadly stand for fiscal responsibility, civil liberties, and a prudent foreign policy, and we incorporate a range of voices.

When was The American Conservative founded?

The magazine was founded in 2002 by Pat Buchanan, Scott McConnell, and Taki Theodoracopulos, in response to the distinctively unconservative policies of the Bush administration (the Iraq war chief among them). The goal was to provide an intellectual home for serious, independent-minded conservatives.

Rob Ford our Very Own Rush Limbaugh

Ford’s pattern of dishonesty reminds this blogger of one of America’s most polarizing, controversial figures – radio broadcasting legend Rush Limbaugh. Aside from the mutual-yet-differentiating situations with Oxycontin, Ford and Limbaugh share an over-the-top, loudmouth style where the spectacle often outshines the practical. They speak to their bases in an unapologetic, unforgiving tone, usually railing against progressives and liberals in a venomous verbal assault that receives coverage for their entertainment value. Missing from their rants, and this is the crux of the problem, is factual evidence to prop up the conjecture. Simply put, they just sort of say stuff and believe context is flexible.

Poll: Hillary Clinton’s numbers worst since 2008

A new poll shows former secretary of state Hillary Clinton's (D) numbers hitting their lowest point in six years.

Meanwhile, it finds that the Republican Party is experiencing something of a renaissance.

The Fox News poll, from Democratic pollster Anderson Robbins Research and GOP pollster Shaw & Company, shows Clinton's favorable rating dropping to 49 percent, compared to 45 percent unfavorable.

The last time her numbers were in that ballpark was during the 2008 Democratic presidential primary race. After she ended her campaign, her favorable/unfavorable split was 47/46."

How Many Presidents Have Been Divorced?

Despite many public and presumably even more numerous private instances of infidelity, presidential marriages have remained remarkably stable throughout history. America has only had one divorcee president, but two widower presidents moved on to second wives while in office. And one president never got married at all.
Ronald Reagan was the only president who ever divorced his wife. But he left that first marriage so early in life, and moved on to such a stable and functional second marriage, that the voters didn't care, said Michael Nelson, a professor of political science at Rhodes College and coauthor of The American Presidency: Origins and Development, 17762007 (CQ Press, 2007). Some presidents, like Franklin Roosevelt, faced the possibility of divorce after their wife discovered an affair , but kept the marriage together for the sake of their political career, Nelson said.
A president, or someone who wants to be president, has every reason to do whatever it takes to keep his wife from divorcing him, Nelson told Life's Little Mysteries. The political price of divorce, where he was the guilty party, even today, would be significant.
The Clintons displayed the political power of avoiding divorce, Nelson said. Had Hillary Clinton not stood by her husband after the public learned of his affair with Monica Lewinsky, President Clinton would have likely faced removal from office or forced resignation, Nelson said.
However, that does not mean that every president has remained in the same marriage throughout their lives. John Tyler and Woodrow Wilson both lost their wives during their presidency, and remarried during their term, Nelson said.
Only one president, James Buchanan, remained a bachelor for his entire life, Nelson said. But he had a good reason for not marrying.
James Buchanan was unmarried at the time he was in office, and is widely thought of to have been what we would today call gay, Nelson said.
So,Obama the first 'black' president may also be the first divorced president during or after office. Interesting. Must be the Chicago way!
Most likely Ronald Reagan's divorce from his first wife Jane Wyman was because he wouldn't grow up and act like a mature adult, Jane Wyman remained a moderate democrat all her life while Ronald Reagan switched from a progressive FDR democrat to the republican party because of the urging of his GE propagandist mentor, Lemuel Boulware and for political expediency and opportunism to advance his politician's career.

So true lily, gossip and lies along with their insatiable desire for something to be true that suits their fanatical agenda is all a part of their defective lives. I guess it somehow makes them feel better about their own insecurities. Which by the way are very obvious.
