And, who funds the Capital Research Center?
Politico reports that the CRC has received millions of dollars of funding from conservative philanthropies over the years. The philanthropies include foundations run by the Koch family, the Scaifes, and the Bradleys.
Another attack on Obama funded by the Koch brothers! No surprises there.
Who funds Michelle's wardrobe? But. let's worry about Ann Romney's choice and price in clothes, right?

Ahhhh, the jealousy and hypocrisy.

tell us, do u like being a member of a Debtor Nation? or would you prefer, as I and others, to return to being an Independent Nation?
this is the last of several posts that u have lauded consuming and talking about increasing our status as a consumer economy and increasing the avg Joe or Jane's ability to spend (like the FG?) rather than MAKE. Third World nations are mostly dependent on outside sources for such things as durable goods to basics like food. they ARE the ultimate Consumer Economies... sort of the Welfare Nations of the World of Nations. poor things just don't have the chops to make it on their own... sort of like our neighbors across town or the tracks or in the 'projects'.
ur experts either don't know what constitutes a great nation or they prefer what we have become to what we WERE.
u must be okay with American astronaughts hitching rides with other nations' crafts... AFTER being the First On the Moon.
maybe u also prefer governance by the UN to DC?
Come ON Nov.
What I think is that you and I are just going to have to cough up some more tax dollars, experience some deep cuts somewhere along the way and baton down the hatches as we move toward austerity on a slower basis in order to preserve economic growth and productivity. We need to start with the wealthiest. They'll get to the rest of us shortly. The problems cannot be fixed by lowering taxes. They're already at record lows. It's not working.

Shall we refer to the messiah as "mentally challanged" so as not offend?

no I am NOT a 'normal', 21st century fiscal conservative. I am an Originalist Constitutional GOVERNMENT Conservative.
what u and others of similar minds tend to gloss over when making political comparisons is that TODAY's center is somewhere left of mid-20th century political standards.
that's why folks like you call Obama a Centerist when in fact he is just short of being a full-blown Socialist/Marxist in his deeds as well as political mindset (he IS a Progressive Soc/Marx at heart).
compromise is no longer between taditional L and R... it is now between liberal and radical... between European-style Socialism and full-blown Soviet-style Marxism.
the latter failed after 70 years and the former is crumbling as we live. yet, the newly infected HERE won't see it. they are victims of that other age-old human condition known as DENIAL. as in: just because such Utopian -isms have always FAILED doesn't mean it will fail with US... WE'll do it RIGHT!
BULLSH!T!!
a system that rewards sloth and abject policy failure, that puts DOWN individual rights and responsibilities for the ILLUSION of collective safety and sustenance, and uses divide and conquer tactics to achieve its ONE POV society CANNOT SURVIVE. it has NOT survived in the Historical Past and will not survive in the rosy future.
less IS better
Yes, we have definitely rewarded failure. We rewarded the lousy business practices of banks by making them whole again. The wealthy got theirs, and the rest of us got the shaft.

LESS FG is the BEST policy for ALL Americans. so says the Constitution, etc...
less IS better
Yeah, yeah. Just stop with your repeated efforts to assign the blame to Barack Obama. I don't care who started it. He inherited it.

here's my opinion: IF GM and Chyr and all of those banks, etc. would have been allowed to FAIL, we would have hit BOTTOM in 2009 and the REAL recovery, barring even MORE FG f&^k-upws, would be well on its way TODAY.
instead, we had New Deal II and, like in the 30's, prolonged recession... with no REAL end in sight.
we, the People, WILL suffer... BIG time, before this one is over. some part of our old, Capitalist society NEEDS to survive so as to start the re-building process. the poor/welfare class? the Middle Class? the Political Class (the FG)? or the 1-5%'ers?
as a member of the working Lower Middle Class, I vote for the 1-5%'ers. they have the funds (no more need to borrow) and the experience. question is, do they have Patiotism left?
after being villified these past 3-4 years, who knows? u can only poke a bear with a sharp stick soooo long before it tears ur head off. goodness knows, the Political Class and the poor/welfare class and the Progressive Elitists have been poking the American grizzly bears of Investment Captial both with pure meanness and envy and hate for so long... TOO long?
the FG got us into this, the People will get us out... IF possible.
less IS better
Agree ff

Let's worry about Romney's plan to return us to trickle down economics and to further enrich the rich at everybody else's expense, especially the working poor. Just say no to insanity. Obama for four more while we pressure our Congress to get on the stick and our leaders to come up with a better plan.

Really? EXACTLY how will we suffer if Obama is not re-elected?
OMG...did you really try and quote the Tax Policy Institute?
With a straight face?
TPI is the bastard child of the Urban Institute and Brookings Institute! Two of THE most liberal entities in Washington DC which splashes its socialism-at-any-cost crap all over Congress!
Plus, you quoted them out of the Puffington Host! Why not just tear a random page out of the Communist Manifesto? Or Mein Kampf?
This crap you are spewing is nothing but socialist wealth redistribution.
Tell you what! It is fine that you believe this stuff. But, instead of having government COMPEL tax payers to provide, why don't you set the example and send in all your money and assets to Obama and the IRS. Nothing is stopping you from sending in more!
I just happen to agree with this crazy little paper called the US Constitution that shows us that SELF-DETERMINATION should be foundational to our success in America.
NOT re-distribution.
Has ANY conservative organization evaluated Romney's tax proposal? Please refer me to ANYBODY else's analysis as to impact. Do you dispute the impact and the statistics? How so? Please elaborate where they went wrong. Educate me.

The rest of your post has to do with your personal view that somehow objecting to Romney's tax proposal or economic proposals is unAmerican and in opposition to The Constitution. Absurd. I happen to believe that The Constitution is one of the most brilliant documents ever created by men. It affords equal protections for all Americans, not just some chosen few (after we added some necessary Amendments), and your suggestion I don't respect it is simply an unwarranted personal attack.

<quoted text>Last time you checked.....Uh, huh. You need to keep checking, because I think you're probably full up by now, and accidents happen.
Stop whining. It's over with. Obama cited executive privilege, and he certainly isn't the only President to have done so.:
In 1990, former President Ronald Reagan invoked executive privilege in refusing to turn over his diaries in a court case related to the Iran-contra affair.
In 1998, President Bill Clinton made a bid to use executive privilege amid the Monica Lewinsky scandal but was denied by a federal judge. A year later, Clinton successfully claimed executive privilege to free himself from congressional scrutiny related to his decision to grant clemency to 16 convicted Puerto Rican nationalists. He used the powers more than any other modern president.
President George W. Bush used executive privilege several times to stifle congressional inquiries including those tied to his mass dismissal of federal prosecutors, F.B.I. misuse of mob informants in Boston and even Clinton’s fund-raising tactics.
The Score Card:
President Ronald Reagan: 3
President George H.W. Bush: 1
President Bill Clinton: 14
President George W. Bush: 6
President Barack Obama: 1

Last, you have no basis whatsoever to imply that those responsible are "off the hook". Wait for the hammer to fall as it surely will. You just wanted bigger fish. We didn't get Dick Cheney, and we may not be saying goodby to Eric Holder. The Committee has already assigned responsibility. Accept it and wait for the release in detail.
Yep. And in each of those cases, the president was directly involved in the issue at hand. This president has claimed he didn't know nuthin''bout nuthin'. If he or anyone close to him are as he has claimed, then why use executive privilege? Wait for the hammer to fall? IF the hammer had fallen long ago, Holder probably wouldn't have had to lie to congress about it. IF he had immediately fired those scapegoats, all this mess probably would have been avoided and no further inquiries would have been conducted. With the blocking at every turn, Holder made himself, as well as others, look like he is hiding something(which he still is). We will probably never get to the bottom of who knew what when and it's a shame that the people killed will never see ALL those responsible come to justice.

The Messiah is the "chosen one" in the Hebrew faith. I don't refer to the Messiah. I'm not Jewish.

I know what the dictionary definition is. You also know the connotation in which the term was used, and it was disparaging in nature. The term when used as posted is DEROGATORY. Again, you bigots will always defend your bigotry. I don't buy it.

"Midget" refers to a person who is very short, but normally proportioned. The term midget is now rarely used and is considered offensive.

Eric Holder ASKED the President to cite Executive Privilege. Where, in any of the reports, is there any allegation that Eric Holder lied? Even once? I must have missed that part. Can you help me out. Last time I'm going to repeat this. Eric Holder agreed to supply the requested documents to the Committee with the stipulation that they not be made public. The Committee declined his offer. If there was something incriminating in them, he would not have made the offer. Again, I'm inclined to believe they have to do with personnel and/or language, and I think he didn't want those communications made public. You are welcome to think whatever looney ideas you have in your pea brain. My assessment is based on the fact Holder would have released them to the Committee for their eyes and consideration.
