Pa. Gov. Tom Corbett is country's 'most vulnerable'?
USA Today has deemed Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Corbett "Americas most vulnerable governor." Corbett, a Republican in his first term, has seven Democrats lined up to try to boot him from office.
A Quinnipiac University poll released today showed York County businessman Tom Wolf posting the greatest margin of victory over Corbett from the Democratic field. Wolf would defeat Corbett 52-33 percent, according to the poll.
USA Today writes:
Just 1 in 4 registered voters in Pennsylvania believe he deserves another term, including less than half of his own party. In December, he earned his worst-ever net approval rating in the Quinnipiac University poll. And that number was generous compared to another fall survey which tracked his approval rating all the way down to 24 percent.
Before this reporter can even rattle off one of those dour statistics, Corbett places his fork down and interrupts.How do you separate, when you ask that question, how do you separate that from how they feel about the country? Because I think its bleed-over from the country. They think the countrys on the wrong track. Its very hard to separate, he contends.
When its noted that his name has been polled specifically and separately from President Barack Obama, Corbett offers up another explanation and an unintentional concession of a failure to communicate.
Corbett is getting his golden parachute ready ! LMAO!!!

Ralph Nader: Obama the executioner
In his new book, Ralph Nader calls for the end of unconstitutional wars and unchecked militarism and lays blame on President Barack Obama for going beyond even George W. Bush.
Nader writes in Unstoppable that Obama has extended the Bush doctrine by declaring his unilateral right, as secret prosecutor, judge, jury, and executioner, to destroy anybody, anywhere in the world, including American citizens, suspected to be engaged in alleged terrorist activities, all this vaguely and loosely defined as anti-U.S. security.
He continues,Inspired by the military actions of the Clinton administration, the Obama and Bush teams made a seamless transition into a militarized foreign policy, extending even further the illegal reach of wars of choice, invasions, incursions, and drone attacks, carried out irrespective of national sovereignties.

Sebelius slashes Obamcare enrollment expectations, blames CBO
Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius lowered the bar on expected Obamcare enrollments by March 31, contradicting her pre-rollout support of a 7 million signup estimate by the Congressional Budget Office (CBO).
Sebelius appeared Tuesday on a Huffington Post Live interview moderated by Marc Lamont Hill, who asked the secretary about Vice President Joe Bidens claim that 5.6 million enrollments would be a success.
Thats 1 million to 2 million short of the 7 million mark that the administration set, Hill noted.Do you agree with Vice President Biden that five or six [million] is a much more realistic mark than seven?

Once again the Daily Caller owned and operated by FOX news commentator is Tucker Carlson.... another Glenn Beck without the chalkboard.
The 2 videos shown on the website are not complete videos ....just sound bytes taken out of context.....LOL!
But on to most important issues:
Tucker Carlson Calls Bigotry Tolerance and Equal Treatment for Gays Fascism
With the political world waiting on tenterhooks for Governor Jan Brewer (R-AZ) to decide whether shell veto Arizonas SB1062, which prevents the government from compelling individuals to act in a way that would substantially burden a persons exercise of religion, Fox News host and Daily Caller publisher Tucker Carlson bravely came to the defense of bigots, and called out the fascism of affording equal protection to gay people with regard to public accommodations like the sale of wedding cakes.
Media Matters flagged an exchange, on Fox News Americas Newsroom, in which Carlson takes the half-baked conservative attempt to pervert the word tolerance to include bigotry, and kicks it up a Godwinian notch.If I dont want to bake you a cake for your gay wedding, thats okay too, or should be, Carlson says.Thats called tolerance. But when you try and force me to bake a cake for your gay wedding and threaten me with prison if I dont, thats called fascism.
He goes on to call it insane, and fascism one more time, but the real stars of this clip are Alan Colmes and, yes, Martha MacCallum. You expect Colmes to make all the right, obvious-to-any-5th-grader points, like how the broad language of the law would allow other types of discrimination (contrary to Carlsons belief, opposition to racial intermarriage also goes back a long way, and still exists), or that it could extend to situations more serious than a large pastry, like refusing medical treatment.
But it was MacCallum who really shined by stepping in, as the anchor, and authoritatively keeping Carlson on track when he strayed into a side-point about whether opposing gay marriage makes you a klansman.That is the argument, she said.Youre either open for business, or not open for business. You cant choose based on different criteria, any more than a Muslim bakery can say you cant come in here without your head covered to shop here. You cant do that.
Slow clap for Martha MacCallum.
This was followed by Carlson apparently supporting the right of forced head-coverings in bakeries, and then arguing that bakers should be able to ban conduct that there are already laws against.You cant come into my bakery naked. You cant come in here and use vulgar language, he said.
The fact is, youre free to be a bigot in America, but in certain situations, youre not free to act on that bigotry. To extend Carlsons absurd logic, if that same bakers religion prevented him from serving Jews, it would be fascism to compel him to do so. You could say that takes the cake, at least until Tucker Carlson gets his way.

Tom Corbett polls numbers..........It doesn't look good .........
#56107 Feb 26, 2014
You're well presented argument contains way too much logic for this eternal dickhead. Like so many of his dickheaded Tea Party bretheren who are not capable of this type of logical thought processing. They absorb Faux News faux facts and get hyped up on that garbage like a kid whose eaten to many candy bars and goes into strange hyper tantrums. This guys especially dim witted and its a complete waste of time responding to him but I admit its kinda fun because he's such a odd ball stooge that it feels good to have such a moronic specimen to unload on....just to combat the ignorance from its source.....the Americans for Prosperity organization that pays him less than minimum wage for posting their "talking points". He as happy as a pig in duty too and is proud to make less than minimum wage.

Convicted Terrorist Worked as Obamacare Navigator in Illinois
* Woman involved in deadly terror bombings kept her past secret from authorities in President's home state.
February 26, 2014
A terrorist from Jordan briefly worked as an Obamacare navigator in Illinois while authorities remained unaware of her conviction for involvement in a deadly grocery store bombing and two other attacks.
Rasmieh Yousef Odeh was convicted in Israel for her role in several bombings, including the 1969 attack on an upscale Shufersol grocery store, which killed two Hebrew University students who had stopped in to buy groceries for a hiking trip in the Jerusalem hills. Leon Kanner and Eddie Joffe were killed by a bomb hidden in a candy box tucked on a shelf, which also injured nine or 10 others, according to a website maintained by the Israeli government to commemorate terror victims.
Odeh, who has as many as nine aliases, was indicted in October for allegedly lying on her U.S. immigration and naturalization application papers. On Dec. 9, 2004, she had been sworn in as a U.S. citizen in a district court in Michigan, the same state where bombing victim Kanner had spent six months studying English. If Odeh is convicted, she could lose her U.S. citizenship and serve up to 10 years in prison. Separately, the Illinois Insurance Code permits civil penalties to be levied after a hearing on any Obamacare navigator whose certificate has been denied, suspended or revoked.
Odeh declined National Reviews interview request.

Health law cybersecurity challenges
February 25, 2014
As the Obama administration raced to meet its self-imposed deadline for online health insurance markets, security experts working for the government worried that state computer systems could become a back door for hackers.
Documents provided to The Associated Press show that more than two-thirds of state systems that were supposed to tap into federal computers to verify sensitive personal information for coverage were initially rated as high risk for security problems.
Back-door attacks have been in the news, since the hackers who stole millions of customers credit and debit card numbers from Target are believed to have gained access through a contractors network.

Potpourri: Feb. 3, 2014
This year's charming U.S. Valentine postage stamp, resembling a paper cutout heart, has a Charleston connection. It was designed by upstate New York artist Elizabeth Quarrier Eddy-Cassetti, known by her nickname "Q." Her mother is Linda Giltinan Eddy, formerly of Charleston.
In the wake of The Great 2014 Water Crisis, some West Virginians recall when then-Gov. Joe Manchin bought a half-million-dollar luxury yacht in partnership with then-West Virginia American Water chief Chris Jarrett and two other Charleston men.
An outfit called "Americans for Prosperity" wants West Virginians to "stand up against ObamaCare." Wait a minute - how could you bring prosperity by taking away people's medical insurance?

HARRISBURG Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Corbett plans to undergo hernia surgery in Pittsburgh and will transfer power temporarily to the lieutenant governor.
His office described the procedure being done this morning as minor and said he was expected to be under general anesthesia for about an hour.
The laparoscopic procedure at Allegheny General Hospitals outpatient surgery facility is to repair an abdominal hernia.
Mr. Corbett's press secretary Jay Pagni said Wednesday that the governor will recuperate for several days at his home in Shaler, and his schedule is clear until Monday, when he will return to work . He obtained his injury while hauling fracking companies campaign contributions in large brown paper bags.

Veteran White House Correspondents: Obama Least Accessible Of Any President
February 26, 2014
Three past presidents and veterans of the White House Correspondents Association agreed that President Barack Obama is the least accessible of any modern president.
A Tuesday panel discussion for the 100th anniversary celebration of the White House Correspondents Association featured veteran journalists National Journals George Condon, ABC News Ann Compton, and Reuters Steve Holland agreeing that Obama is the least accessible president to reporters.
When asked if Obama is the least accessible of any president they have covered, Holland replied,I would say that.
The journalists comments are direct criticism of an administration that vowed to increase transparency throughout government, declaring on the White House website that the administration is committed to creating an unprecedented level of openness in Government.

Democratic governors: Obama needs to sell Obamacare
With the battle over Obamacare moving from Washington to the states and a deluge of ads battering the law on TV, Democratic governors delivered a message to President Barack Obama over the weekend: We need help.
Four years out from passage of the Affordable Care Act, its state executives in Obamas party who may be bearing the heaviest load when it comes to making the law work and selling it to voters. Theyve grappled with their own glitch-ridden enrollment sites and fought their own legislatures over Medicaid expansion.
Now, many of them are running for reelection with the ACA hanging over their heads and only a limited effort from national Democrats and their president to reverse the consistently negative public opinion of the law.

Krauthammers Take: Obamacare Impossible from the First Day
February 25, 2014
Two-thirds of small businesses set to experience a premiums increase is just the latest Obamacare promise to be broken, and the administration knew it all along, Charles Krauthammer asserts. There was no way the government could fulfill all its stated obligations of insuring up to 40 million uninsured people, providing subsidies, and keeping premiums low, among others, without increasing the cost of the program.
That was impossible from the first day, he said on Tuesdays Special Report. The only way it was remotely possible with through hidden transfers of wealth written in to the law, such as younger, healthier people subsidizing others.
You could say its social justice, but you also have to say its deception, he continued Thats how the numbers were made to come out so the administration would say the government isnt going to pay a dime.
