Rusty you remember the story of the boy who cried "Wolf"?
Let me tell you a story about the Guys who cried "FOX"...
The reason nothing sticks is that so much of what was thrown was of such poor quality and delivery that if you ever do get the goods on the guy and you present it to a public who's outrage reflex has been numbed by the low rent pitches that had been so sloppy and feverish in their content... that the public yawns...
A couple less rounds of "birther babble" would have suited the GOP...
The extension of the 'war on Women' by POTUS may be the move that secures the White House for Ms. Clinton... And the beat goes on...

good ol boy obama, the champion of bipartisanship. he's always on to DC to 'reach across that aisle', be non-partisan. All the while on the DEM fundraising trail in a plainly partisan tone and his begging for money. 6 years of fu not be allowed.

There is so much red meat needed to throw to the base that folks can see what is happening. Most of it tripe.

Perhaps McConnell said it best: "The single most important thing we want to achieve is for President Obama to be a one-term president."

They were unsuccessful on that one but they keep on trying ...!

BB, first thing, I don't watch ANY national/cable TV news. I do watch my local news and research issues I am concern about - both local and national. The national media is so obviously biased (for and against Obama) they are a true insult to intelligence. I don't doubt what your saying for a minute. 30 second sound bite mentality is the name of the game today.

I'm just not sure continuing down the same road we have gone the past 5 years is the way to go. Increasing the national debt, increasing cost of living (food and energy), increasing the number of people on welfare because it pays better than working many jobs and encouraging personal debt with low interest rates and easy credit is sustainable. Reducing personal responsibility is a slippery slope.

We have seen a 30% increase in state/federal spending for approximately 90 'assistance' programs in the last 5 years, with a total cost of over $1TRILLION a year. In most states you can make more on welfare than working minimum wage jobs. In a number of states welfare recipients make higher than the national average income of $49K.

You have a good point, the Democrats are in control and more than likely will be in 2016. They will decide if the direction of increasing dependency on the government is sustainable.
I will say my original hopes of Obama being the catalyst for real change for open transparent government are long gone.

Great reply
My main point is that the frothy rabid politics that the right has grown so darn fond of gave Obama an un-earned second term.
It is true that we can nott continue on the same path that we have been. The hostile and completely negative nature of the debate on impotant issues is down right unpatriotic in that we sem to argee the tone is in no way helpful. Even if the Obama Predsiency were everything we hoped it could be five years ago (it is not) Obama would need a congress that even in opposition was constructive. With the huge debt congress spending it's every working moment attempting to un-do the last election shows that the accumulation of red ink and unresolveed issues is shared shame.
You may place the blame for our accumulated debt on the president...that is a shared shame.. That last line on transparency in gov't and on continuing the Bush adminiistration NSA spying is where obama gets poor grades and there is no sharing that blame

The sad fact that the only way the political process will operate is through fundraising.

The whole idea of fundraising is disingenuous. It does not matter who is participating.

Folks donate money simply because the candidate they hope for will do their bidding.

Is it prostitution or is it a simple business transaction?

Everything about our political process is scandalous.

Unfortunately the lesser of the two evils is how one has to vote.

Women will make the difference this next go 'round.

BB - True, there is plenty of blame to go around. It takes both Houses of congress and the President to create our massive debt. Right now, the Democrats control 2/3rds of the process and therefore 2/3rds of the blame. This president can, and does, use his power to restructure business and wealth. The IRS, NSA and EPA have used their 'interpretation' of regulations or outright creation of new ones to move towards a government control of industry. Eliminating power generation from coal and funding companies like Solyndra, or mandating ethanol than uses more energy to produce than it produces are where we continue to go

now now, please note that with every taxpayer provided junket paying for AF1, kingly penthouses and golf courses. That the emporer appears in front of a radio or TV microphone to mumble off a few GOP sux 1 liners so the entire fundraising trip can be billed to the taxpayer as him 'working'. These millions he raises goes to the needy democrats he has stuffed under the bus with his ruling style equitable to the 3 stooges style. As the first fatsz moochelle stated on her fundraising stint in chicongo telling them she needs a big fat check and then spouted that there's too much money in politics. The first fat asz hypocrite is reading from the wrong teleprompter again.

I would dispute your dvision of the blame and shame
yes the Democrats do control 2\3 currently of the executive & legislative
However the fact is it takes fewer who are dedicated to disrupt than it takes to lead.
And the radical "NO" never more appearant than in the House punishes both the country and the President at the same time as they destroy the GOP....
Before you accuse me of partisannship... i was GOP till the radicals began the take over .ousted in the 2nd purge..

Perhaps all the donors at Obama's fund-raisers will be happy when an Islamist comes up to them and their families and gives them what they gave Daniel Pearl. I WILL SMILE !!!!!!! What goes around comes around. Remember how he was raised (not Christian).
