The Republicans couldn't win in 2014 without the votes of people who have voted Democrat in the last election. Thank God they are falling away from the Corrupt One in droves. You can't lie all the time about everything without people noticing it. At this point all the President and his 40 thieves have left are the lies.

Then obviously you're a teabagger.
Saul must have been a great man, you seem to refer to him a lot.
Then again teabaggers refer to Reagan as a great man also.
Fix the problems you are so inclined to insult others on. You can't. You don't even answer this when I have brought it up time after time. So you attack and say teabagger this, or teabagger that, or a Repub related agenda law to deflect it. You are Saul because you are purely partisan in your politics. Way to the left. Way, way to the left. With you fagus, everyone is ordered to march in lockstep. And when there are disagreements in Washington over your communist goals, you start accusing others of not being patriots. Whatever Reagan was, he was the most conservative president in my lifetime. And for one term he lived it. This despite all of the RINOS/NEO CONS/PROGRESSIVE REPUBS inhabiting Washington including his Vice President. Clinton lived off of Reagan's coattails with the help of the Repub election blowout of 1994.

Reagan did no such thing.
"Reaganomics" didn't last 24 months.
Teabagger revisionist history.
1/19/82
At his seventh press conference, President Reagan:
· Claims there are "a million more working than there were in 1980," though statistics show that 100,000 fewer people are employed.
2/27/82
The Congressional Budget Office finds that taxpayers earning under $10,000 lost an average of $240 from last year's tax cuts, while those earning over $80,000 gained an average of $15,130.
· Responds to a question about the 17% black unemployment rate by pointing out that "in this time of great unemployment," Sunday's paper had "24 full pages of ... employers looking for employees," though most of the jobs available - computer operator, or cellular immunologist - require special training, for which his administration has cut funds by over 30%.
4/15/82
"The statisticians in Washington have funny ways of counting" - President Reagan's explanation to Illinois high school students as to why he thinks unemployment has declined in the face of Bureau of Labor statistics.
10/9/82
Jobless Rate Is Up To 10.1% In Month. Worst In 42 Years. 11 Million Are Idle - The New York Times
11/11/82
"It would be a user fee" - President Reagan explaining why his proposed five-cent-a-gallon gasoline tax would not be a tax at all.
11/25/82
The White House announces it is considering a proposal (conceived by Ed Meese) to tax unemployment benefits. This, says Larry Speakes, would "make unemployment less attractive."
12/04/82
U.S. Jobless Rate Climbs To 10.8%, A Postwar Record. 11.9 Million Out Of Work - The New York Times
Poor teabagger.
No one cares about you. The only thing you have done is hardened views. The compassion angle you use on others is frayed now. You better learn to deal with it. The self hating whites that are part of your movement have many who are not as dyed in the wool commies like you when you read blogs in other forums off the net. As an example. In many sports forums, they will fall over backwards backing up a so so black quarterback that may be given the "he is going to be a great one treatment" by the media, but as soon as he does not live up to it after a few years is quietly reduced in comments. But the self hating white will call others out, even accusing racial overtones for calling that person a 'bum". Even as they followed the medias drive to destroy Tebow and thought nothing of it. Anyway, in many of the same blogs, they will call each other gay names and mess with each other about gay sexual positions. These are the enlightened ones who will leave the progressive movement when they are tested in a bad situation or time. There was some friction up North after the bad storm last year by some people who lived through it. And without the region being provincial with family living withing a few hours drive to help out the affected, would have been much worse. You thieving parasites.

The scandal-driven tea partiers fail to understand that effective politics requires not only compromise, but also good timing among other features. Their only strategy is to obstruct the political process while trying to disown it magically by projecting it onto their opponents. Of course it does not work, so they're losing ground rapidly as most Americans recognize the exact nature of their ineffective foolishness. "Patriots" indeed!

I'm referring to the scandals that the tea partiers manufacture in their effort to discredit everything their opponents contribute to the betterment of America on behalf of all Americans. Tea partiers' leadership do that to incite their ranks. Faux distorts — they deride.

DEMS SLIPPING AWAY FROM REID ON BUDGET DEAL - Senate Majority Whip Dick Durbin told CBS’“Face the Nation” that his team will need at least eight Republicans to pass a two-year budget deal approved last week by the Republican controlled House. That’s his way of saying that three members of the Democratic conference have already told him that they will not vote for the deal. Which three? Vulnerable Democrats Sen. Mark Pryor of Arkansas and Kay Hagan of North Carolina have been noncommittal, but Fox News First suspects that the trouble is on the left. No word as yet from Elizabeth Warren, the freshman Democrat who has taken the reins of the liberal wing of Reid’s conference. Every vote Reid loses means another he will have to get from Republicans. John Boehner delivered. Can Reid?

"White House delayed rules ahead of 2012 election"
well,,, duh.. this is news?

Cause and Effects 101...
Environment regulations are good, all well and fine.
but,
Government regulations have real costs.

Businesses do business.
In order for a business to do business, it must know the costs of doing business.
As the government advances implementation of regulations, the costs of doing business change.
With the implementation of good, necessary environmental regulations the ability to do business can be compromised.
When a factory is faced with new pollution standards it has to make a choice.
Is it going to upgrade an existing facility?
or
Is it going to relocate certain offending operations?
Both options drive the cost of product up.
Shutting down a production line costs jobs.

The politicians want it both ways.
They want to be seen as pro-environment - and, pro jobs.

Business can not deliver on these promises.
They have to pay for the jobs.
and,
Pay for upgrades for environmental compliance.

The solution is to delay the consequences of all those good environmental ideas, until "after" the elections.

That way everyone is happy..- or, almost...
The clueless sheeple will re-elect the guy that got his environmental policies passed.
So, the political hog is back at his trough - and, He is happy.

The Business, as businesses do, will find some way to comply.
They will accommodate the new rules - if possible.
If not, they will close down production lines, they will relocate to more modern compliant facilities,- or, relocate operations out of the country where the regulations don't exist.

This folds back to the clueless sheeple that re-elected their politician.
They eventually loose their employment, which ironically is another win for the politician.
Not only does he get points for his support of the environment,- now, he can also garner kudos for his compassionate support of unemployment benefits for his recently dispossessed constituents.
As the sheeple settle into their ever deepening dependency, they are ever more predisposed to cast their dependent votes for the guy that led them from the promised land - unto the land flowing with entitlement subsidies.

This is having your cake and eating it too.
If you like your job - you can keep your job... not!!!
but, in your government provided housing, eating your government provided food, talking on your government provided phone, the air will be cleaner and your water will be sweeter... maybe... if they ever get around to enforcing the environmental regulations.

Ya can't say that the White House doesn't know what it's doing.
