Reid says he can't work with Romney
Washington Times, by Stephen Dinan

Original Article

Posted By:kennedylaw, 11/2/2012 1:40:28 PM

Five days before the election, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid has ruled out trying to work with Mitt Romney should he win next week. "Mitt Romney's fantasy that Senate Democrats will work with him to pass his 'severely conservative' agenda is laughable," Mr. Reid said in a statement on Friday, trying to puncture Mr. Romney's closing election argument that he'll be able to deliver on the bipartisanship President Obama promised in 2008 but has struggled to live up to.

President Romney should keep footage of this pronouncement and use it whenever necessary to pressure the Senate, unless of course Republicans take control of it.

Harry, despite your jaded view of the future President, he will invite you to the White House and make an attempt to work with you. If you don't like it, perhaps it's time for you to retire.

Here is hoping that Reid becomes Senate MINORITY Leader and doesn't have to work with President Romney.

Just before Reid was relected, a prominent Republican in Nevada endorsed him, because his seniority would benefit Nevada. Now we can only hope enough other states step up and send a Republican Senator to Washington to clean up the mess. The politically elite, entrenched representatives need replaced. California are you listening? Time to replace Feinstein.

When Mr. Romney is elected, we will hear no more about obstructionism and will once again be told that dissent is the highest form of patriotism.

Vallerie Jarrett has already promised to get revenge against anyone who disagreed with Mr. Obama, should he by some miracle be re-elected.

#21, you speak out of ignorance.
Early in 2009, the Republican minority leaders met with Obeyme to find common ground they could support together.
Eric Kantor provided a list of excellent targeted (to small business and low-income) tax cuts, and was shot down by President Choom, who said to Paul Ryan "I won."
From Day 1, because the Dems had majorities in both houses, the Punk-in-Chief gave the Republican congressional members the finger.
Romney is too adult and too professional to that.

#8 Harry Reid is the Senate Majority Leader. There is no Speaker in the Senate.
There will be another election in 2014. Democrats, such as Udall from Colorado, will note the election results and will work with President Romney on many proposals. Of course, Democrats will want to have a fight or two on things they deem important; but successful Presidents work to maintain good working relationships with members of the opposition party on key proposals.
Surely, anyone we could elect would do better at that than the divisive President Obama.

The Right Minimum
Wage: $0.00
New York Times, by Staff    Original Article
Posted By: kennedylaw- 2/3/2014 11:37:31 AM     Post Reply
The Federal minimum wage has been frozen at $3.35 an hour for six years. In some states, it now compares unfavorably even with welfare benefits available without working. It´s no wonder then that Edward Kennedy, the new chairman of the Senate Labor Committee, is being pressed by organized labor to battle for an increase. No wonder, but still a mistake. Anyone working in America surely deserves a better living standard than can be managed on $3.35 an hour. But there´s a virtual consensus among economists that the minimum wage is an idea whose time has passed.

The Urban League of Greater Dallas fired one person and suspended three others after a video from a conservative activist reportedly showed the workers encouraging health care applicants to lie. An edited video was released Monday that seemingly shows so-called health care Navigators encouraging people to lie on forms signing up for health care to get better rates. The video was released by Project Veritas, which was started by conservative activist James O´Keefe. O´Keefe gained notoriety for videos in 2009 that eventually brought down ACORN.

Evelina Gonzalez was supposed to undergo cancer surgery in July following chemotherapy but wound up shuttling from hospital to hospital in search of an available operating table. On the crest of her left breast, a mocha-colored tumor doubled in size and now bulges through her white spandex tank top. Gonzalez is on a list of 31 breast cancer patients waiting to have tumors removed at one of Venezuela´s biggest medical facilities, Maracay´s Central Hospital. But like legions of the sick across the country, she´s been neglected by a health care system doctors say is collapsing after years of deterioration.

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House.

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

In a speech earlier this week, Lisa O.

Monaco’s full, prepared text is available here. She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15. Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings. Interestingly, the Harvard grad failed to mention the religion or the motive of brothers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan
