Bashing of the rich?

How about millionaires "bashing" themselves?
It took me a minute but your link is brought to us by The Agenda Project:
"Erica Payne is the author of The Practical Progressive: How to Build a 21st Century Political Movement, which Jonathan Alter of Newsweek called a blueprint for a progressive conspiracy to help save the country.

No thank-you.

Half the US population has CHARGED the Republicans in Congress not to
fold when the majority party overloads bills with trailers, stipulations, concessions and PORK! You call it screwing and obstructing. Tea Baggers and the right half of the US call it retaining their JOBS!
On the <rare> forseen occasion that Obama "does something right", it will hardly be necessary to "remind" anyone in here. I'm sure the king's loyal subjects will glady blare out his positive achievements, preceeded by the usual 30 minute baroque renaissance trumpet fanfare.
Nah, less than half the populaton. And even worse, with all the odds stacked in your favor you could not even take 3 - 4 seatd in the Senate.

10 Republican seats up for election.
23 Democrat seats up for election.
10 vacant seats up, 3 had been Republican, 10 had been Democrat.

And what did the Republicans do? They lost a seat.

Do you see the irony of all those on the right laughin and rejoicing for November 7 to come around so the Democrats would know they lost. And then all the whining and crying would begin?

Well sure enough, it began. Just not in the intended way.

Until that time, the "many" countries most comparable to the US include Western Europe, Canada, Australia and Japan.

Why did you reply to ME. I didn't ask for your biased bag0schit
Romney lost because he listened to extremist fringes in the republican party and President Obama ran a much better campaign he didn't LIE constantly and distort facts to persuade uneducated voters.(fox news viewers)
Romney was seen for what he is/was a complete failure as a politician.
You can give your impression of the electorate in this country but it just shows how incredibly out of touch you and your LOSER party is.
Remember YOU LOST for good reason....YOU and your policies SUCK!!!!!
You've made your point Hip... I thought your work was done here? Don't let the door hit you in the azz on the way out.

I will say predictions are all over the place. Has to dom ore with the Repubicans and if they are willing to accept a tax increase for those at the top.
Really makes things interesting since about half the top supported and voted for Obama and now we have those Patriotic Millionaires begging Congress to raise their taxes.
What is more important to the Republicans? The people's will and the fiscal health of the nation? Or a promise made to Grover?
I am betting the promise is, at least for a while. Long enough to be remembered in 2014.
Wipe your chin, okb. It's not polite to drool over other peoples money. We get you want to stick it to the wealthy.

<quoted text>Then why did so many Tea Party freshmen get their pink slips? You need to tweak your story to account for that.
I think you're interpreting the results wrong, is what I think. America is tired of extremism leading to gridlock, plain and simple. That's not my interpretation, that's the result of extensive polling across all party lines, as well as election results. What really happened? Pretty much the same makeup as before. Think of it - billions spent by outside groups to influence the election, and the breakdown ends up pretty much the same, with a major exception. Those perceived as extremist/ obstructionist were shown the door. This is pure numbers, bob. Show me where I'm wrong. No matter what spin the opposition threw, fueled by billions spent in the process, America just wasn't buying the "socialist" doom and gloom this time around.
Mitch McConnell set two top goals for the 2012 election: a Republican takeover of the Senate and the defeat of President Obama. He achieved neither, and in fact lost two seats. He himself isn't up for re-election until '14. It will be interesting to watch his manner over the next 2 years, to see what lesson he perceives from these election results.
The Republican message lost big time across the whole spectrum of Republicanism. They last in the House, Senate and the Presidency. TEA Party candidates lost and establishment Republicans lost. They just plain lost.

McConnell and Boehner may be the biggest losers of all. If Boehner can't get cooperation in the House he may be gone as Speaker. Speaker Cantor will really screw this nation.

Competent??
Well just off the top of me skull we have in Obama I, a grossly expensive UHC law that few wanted, but forced on us anyway. We have a nuclear Iran threat pending. We have an unresolved Fast & Furious scandal, and the Benghazi tragedy unexplained. We have the top CIA chief caught with his pants down, PRIOR to the election, but undisclosed until AFTER the election.
Laurel & Hardy were more competent.
You should stop and think about which way you want to play this. Either Obama is incompetent and the Republicans lost because they are even more incompetent OR Obama is not incompetent and the Republicans are marginally so.

Any way you look at it, the Republicans come in last when it comes to intelligence, competence, ability to manage an election,......

BTW: He did the RIGHT thing accepting the CIA chiefs resignation. Now we can find out if he appoints the right guy/gal to fill his place.

Who will replace Hillary and Geithner? Hmmmmm

You know very well that I'm not deeply immersed in Capitol Hill seat numbers. But I was referring to the movement, not the
congressional reps. But I do think possibly McConnell is aging to the point that I doubt if he much cares whether he's reelected or not, over principles.
In less than 2 years, I believe this Prez will either screw up on an enormous scale, or have a series of screw ups of a lesser degree.
Whichever happens, I think it'll be enough for at least a repeat of the 2010 midterms, but much more of a Republican edge this time. And that'll obviously be to reduce Barry to a lame duck, until he can finally be sent packing.
I believe one of the following two scenarios will play out.

1. The Republicans come to their senses and work with the President to solve our problems and good things and great accomplishments are made. The economy moves forward faster than most thought possible. As a reward the American people keep things largely the same in 2014 with a split Congress and America wins.

2. The Republicans remain obstructionist and America suffers. In 2014 the American people continue trying to vote commonsense into the Republican Party and they lose the House and more Senate seats. Ideally, the Republicans retain 40 seats in the Senate to keep the Dems from getting too stupid. After this election, the Republicans decide the American people want progress instead of obstructionism.

No cuter than watching you, Larry and Curly gloat over a president who got relected on one of the all time worst records in the history of the United States.
Nice job, Moe.
Gloating is it? Considering that you've been gloating over your "win" for the last several months, while I've been guardedly optimistic at most, I don't think I'll be apologizing for being pleased with the ACTUAL outcome AFTER the fact, don't you? I can see why you'd be embarrassed, so we'll just leave it there if you like. I'm gracious that way.

<quoted text>I don't need comfort Hip, nothing will change much for me and i still bask in the glory of what has been accomplished in America. And in 4 years well we'll see. But let's be frank. You aren't exactly a big city guy though you like to portray yourself as worldly, I just don't see you that way. It's not a slam just a comment. I know you like to picture us wringing our hands and dabbing our eyes but it ain't happening. I am looking forward to another president already and I just hope that some things will have changed.
Let me ask you something. I know you feel proud that we have a black president. So am I. But are you proud that minority candidates and others who are of a conservative bent and don't please the Mas... scuse me the leadership, are metaphorically strung up on a regular basis? think of it. There is something really wrong here, that Biden's and Reid's racist comments are abided but everyone who doesn't like Obama is a racist. Isn't there something wrong with the idea that the democratic party is supposedly for women, but not all women, women of the conservative bent are called the C word. C'mon, say what you like but at least be honest.
First, people are generally who they were raised to be. Grow up in the country and you will most likely stay country. I have been to some big cities and even stayed in some for a while all over the world. But I am a small town/country kind of person and that is why I live in the woods. Neighbors don't move in and out and rely on one another. I don't lock my doors, even the two weeks the wife and I took to California.

Second, the Democrat Party is not judged as harshly because they recognize people make mistakes, all people. It is the Republican Party that insists on perfection. Every hear of a DINO? We hear of RINO all the time. And that just has to do with a NY Republican, not a rude or crude one.

The Republican Party demands obediance and perfection which are worthy goals, but not so much in the real world. YOur job is to ensure that they stay that way. Please don't change a thing for at least 2 more election cycles.

OR Obama's incompetent, the MSM buried the stories until AFTER the election, and Romney ran a conservative campaign after winning the the 1st debate. The MSM admitted after Romney failed to challenge
Obama on Benghazi in the 3rd debate, "if Romney's not gonna bring it up, why should we"?

As for the congressional seats, pay attention. I'm not a political junkie, only a street urchin. I'll leave the ins and outs of CSpan I and II to those who're more interested.

President bush, the only President to thought of so lowly that his successor was awarded the Nobel Prize simply for not being bush.
You were right about the bar being lowered.
Sorry to burst your mediamatter's fantasy, but Bush 43 received a greater percentage of the popular vote when he ran for his second term than obama did. "W" only received about 200 thousand less votes than barry... even though the U.S. population had increased by about 25 million since 2004. And... both of them did far better than our sexual predator president, Bill Clinton.

If anyone is lowering the presidential bar, it's Democrats like Clinton and obama. Don't let the facts confuse you, just keep spewing your usual tripe.

KIA: The US Neoliberal Invasion of India
Farmers' cooperatives in India are defending the nation's food security and the future of Indian farmers against the neoliberal invasion of genetically modified (GM) seed. As many as 28,000 Indian farmers have committed suicide over the last decade as a result of debt incurred from failed GM crops and competition with subsidized US crops, yet when India's Prime Minister Singh met with President Bush in March 2006 to finalize nuclear agreements, they also signed the Indo-US Knowledge Initiative on Agriculture (KIA), backed by Monsanto, Archer Daniels Midland (ADM), and Wal-Mart. The KIA allows for the grab of India's seed sector by Monsanto, of its trade sector by giant agribusiness ADM and Cargill, and its retail sector by Wal-Mart.
Though the contours of KIA have been kept so secret that neither senior Indian politicians nor the scientific community know its details, it is clear that Prime Minister Singh has agreed to sacrifice India's agriculture sector to pay for US concessions in the nuclear field.
In one of very few public statements by a US government official regarding KIA, Nicholas Burns, Under Secretary of State for Political Affairs, states, "While the civilian nuclear initiative has garnered the most attention ... Our first priority is to continue giving governmental support to the huge growth in business between the Indian and American private sectors. Singh has also challenged the United States to help launch a second green revolution in India's vast agricultural heartland by enlisting the help of America's great land-grant institutions."
Vandana Shiva translates, "These are twin programs about a market grab and a security alignment ... Burns announced that while the nuclear deal is the cutting edge, what the US is really seeking is agricultural markets and real estate markets ... to take over the land of people, not through a market mechanism, but using the state and an old colonial law of land acquisition to grab the land by force."
Through KIA, Monsanto and the US have asked for unhindered access to India's gene banks, along with a change in India's intellectual property laws to allow patents on seeds and genes, and to dilute provisions that protect farmers' rights. A combination of physical access to India's gene banks and a possible new intellectual property law that allows seed patents will in essence deliver India's genetic wealth into US hands. This would be a severe blow to India's food security and self-sufficiency.

I don't think Roberta meant that obama qualified as a pRsident, as barry has shown most of us that he doesn't... but he might qualify as a snake, if snakes don't have standards.
