<quoted text> " We'll have to provide Obama and the dems a majority in the House in the mid-terms." Now that is funny! Obama blew that for his followers. Come on, you're smarter than that. You know it can't happen now. The pendulum has come full swing and the Republicans will sweep them out like they did the Republicans before. Mind you that is not something I want either as I want every congressman and the President to be replaced. I'll score one if nothing else. They have ALL FAILED and none deserve their jobs.
HEre's what I see as the problem with your thinking on that: consensus. So, you can replace a dem with a pub and vice versa, and what you end up with is the same kind of gridlock that has been a nightmare for America. We gave the Tea Party a chance, and they did nothing other than obstruct with demands so severe and restrictive that even their Republican colleagues were horrified. In fact, a few Republicans just threw in the towel and departed congressional representation altogether than risk being associated with the party of obstruction - most especially at a point in our history when cooperation was/is paramount if we are to even have a shot at regaining our former stature.

Okay. So, if this "replace them all" approach would create the same kind of ongoing BS we're suffering today, what other options are there? Well, we COULD turn the reigns over to the Republican party. But, why would American voters do that? What policies and legislation does the party have that would afford any encouragement to you, me, the young and the rest of the working classes in America? Maybe you can do what NOBODY on this thread has been able to do in spite of numerous requests. Kindly provide us with a REASON to get behind the Republicans on fiscal policy and their legislative proposals.

I hope you see the problem here. When it's all said and done, and Republican candidates have to explain their policies to American voters, I see the heads shaking, not bobbing up and down in enthusiastic agreement. Can the party transition itself in time for the mid-terms? I have serious doubts it can. Can it transform itself in time to retake the White House in 2016? I don't think they can do that either. They're too deeply in bed with corporatists and plutocrats and business interests to afford much encouragement to a struggling middle class (whom they've already dismissed as irrelevant) much less show any compassion for the poor, the disabled, and the elderly.

We'll see, but I think you're reaching on this, especially once the wonks and economists have to analyze and report on the effect of whatever it is that Republican candidates are proposing. It's hard to hide those kinds of assessments. Ask Mitt Romney's advisors. They got caught flat footed.

What really killed the republicans in 2012?

It wasn't economic policy. Nobody liked Obama's policies very much either and your average American doesn't know enough about how the economy actually works to care anyway.

It wasn't healthcare, that whole thing's a mess on both sides.

It wasn't foreign policy because without a big blue D or a big red R stamped on the blueprint you couldn't tell the difference one approach from the other, so what was it that undid the conservative revolution in 2012?

Social issues.

Social Issues, Social Issues, Social Issues.

Whether it's the new enlightenment on gay and lesbian equality, the perception of hostility toward minorities, or one republican after another deciding it was a good idea to take time to slap a woman on camera at some point during their campaign it was social issues that swung the balance in the democrats favor and social issues will play a bigger role than anyone expects (or will admit) in 2014 and 2016.

There will be two primary factors that play into another collapse of republican support in 2014.

Social issues and a bloody power struggle within the republican party playing itself out on the the national stage.

Maybe there are more important, more immediate concerns, but they will take a back seat to the drama and the new awareness and that does not play in the republicans favor.

Obama commutes sentences of eight crack cocaine offenders

President Barack Obama has commuted the sentences of eight individuals convicted of crack cocaine offenses.

In a statement, Obama said the commutation “is an important step toward restoring fundamental ideals of justice and fairness” and noted that he signed legislation in 2010 to narrow the disparity between penalties for crimes related to powder and crack cocaine.

Obama has pushed to change criminal justice policy to correct what his administration calls unfairness in sentencing and to keep down the cost of lengthy incarcerations for non-violent crimes.

“If they had been sentenced under the current law, many of them would have already served their time and paid their debt to society,” he said of inmates sentenced before the passage of the Fair Sentencing Act.“Instead, because of a disparity in the law that is now recognized as unjust, they remain in prison, separated from their families and their communities, at a cost of millions of taxpayer dollars each year.”

Obama also called on Congress to pass pending legislation that would make the Fair Sentencing Act retroactive for some offenders.

Each of the eight offenders has served over 15 years in prison for the drug crimes.

One of the individuals, Clarence Aaron of Mobile, Ala., was convicted in the early 1990s at the age of 22 for conspiracy to distribute cocaine. Aaron's lawyer Margaret Love told NBC News that Aaron was "overcome" with emotion and that he will head to a halfway house in his hometown in coming weeks.

The president also pardoned thirteen other individuals for crimes ranging from drug offenses to money laundering to theft.

The NAACP Legal Defense Fund praised the decision in a statement.

Corruption Perceptions Index: Corruption Around the World in 2013
http://www.triplepundit.com/2013/12/corruptio...
Transparency International’s 2013 Corruption Perceptions Index indicates that the abuse of power, secret dealings and bribery continue to ravage societies around the world. More than two-thirds of the 177 countries in the 2013 index score below 50, on a scale from 0 (perceived to be highly corrupt) to 100 (perceived to be very clean).
