Like many Republicans across the country, I woke up this morning deeply depressed, my mood soon matched by the falling stock market. I’m distressed not only by the outcome of the presidential election, but also because of the way it was won. (Snip) I felt that I was watching a shrinking presidency as the campaign unfolded, with President Obama getting smaller each day. He often came across as peeved, petty and not presidential. On stage during the first debate he looked as if he wanted to be anywhere else, and his comments about his opponent were cutting
Comments: More like a campaign of envy, jealousy, victimization, and covetousness. I don't think Obama's election model is sustainable.
The constant sexual remarks and innuendos were disgusting. Our country has fallen so far. Maybe it's time to split into two countries. I'll be with the military and law enforcement and the capitalists. The movie stars and beautiful people can make their own way with the parasites.
One of the most depressing things I heard post election, was that Obama got the youth vote. the 18-25 bracket... and what we need to do to gain inroads to them. Are you serious? So now we have to have a candidate that appeals to the rappers and ditzy Hollywood crowd and can appear on as many talk shows as possible. Is this what we have come to? I seriously hope no one in control of our party will fall for this.
#8 - What can you expect when you have new generations who were schooled with anti-American textbooks and, often, teachers? I ran across a teacher training textbook for our local system which was praising the People's Republic of China, for example - and that would be just the tip of the iceberg.
As for the prez - his "cool" (as perceived by the masses of hypnotized, brainwashed voters) is hard to trump ca. 2012. But the Republicans are going to have to figure out how to do it, or be it. For one thing, we will I believe need to lean more to the libertarian side of the party in order to have any hope of winning in this environment. No offense to many of you, but the term 'Tea Party' has become a club to beat us with - as orchestrated by the media, to be sure; but I think we have a lot of soul-searching to do, and I personally am doing some of my own....
Yo can take a man out of a low class environment - Chicago-politics - But you cannot take the low class out of the man. A nwe edition of Webster/s Dictionary should show the image of Obama next to a description of the term "low class".
He should reach out to Mitt Romney, perhaps ask him to lead a special effort to focus on rebuilding jobs.
After Obama demonized Romney at every step of the way, why would Romney lower himself to work for that total fraud in the oval office? Romney would have to have an exorcist with him at all times to cast out the numerous demons in this administration, starting from the president and then on down to the lowest member of this evil cabal.
Karen suggests that the Leader reach out to Mitt Romney for assistance in job creation. The sad truth is that no one can create jobs until and unless the feds do something concrete about taxes and regulations. Something other than ''raise and implement''. The gov't can only ''create'' gov't jobs. Mother Russia found out that a fully employed bureaucracy poorly balanced by a dependent civilian population doesn't create a vibrant economy...
No it didn't. It strenghthened the presidency into a Demon-RAT Party dictatorship.
Within six months, one or more conservative justices on the Supreme Court will ''unexpectedly retire'' or have sudden ''accidents'' -- to be replaced by lie-beral activist justices.
Shortly after that, by presedential degree, and before the 2014 congressional elections, there will be millions of new citizens (who are currently illegal aliens). They will all be registered Demon-RAT voters. Overnight, there will not be a red state left on the map. This will be done by presidential decree, and immediately deemed constitutional by the lie-beral Supreme Court.
51% of the voters decided to kill the republic on 11-6-2012. There will be no ''corrections'' in 2014 or 2016. Kiss that fantasy goodbye. Don't say that we weren't warned that this is what the Demon-RATS have been working up to for decades, and have finally succeeded.
Jesus was betrayed and killed for 20 pieces of silver.
The USA was betrayed and killed for free contraception and food stamps.
Obama's campaign had absolutely nothing with moving this country forward for the better. Their philosophy appears to have been 'what do we have to do to win this thing?' So they put (contrived) fear into certain faction of the population, used bribery to get people to the polls, and maliciously denigrated the republican candidate. None of this is good for our country, but it selfishly won them the election.
SOUTH ORANGE, N.J. -- The victim of a vicious knockout attack in New Jersey is speaking out for the first time. He was cold-cocked, and hit not just with a fist, but with a glove with hard plastic knuckles. Two of the four attackers are still on the run. "All of a sudden, I was trying to watch my back and these two came around front and punches my face," the victim said. The 36-year-old restaurant worker does not want his name or face on television, and who could blame him? He still has headaches from a concussion and six
Sears stock plummeted Wednesday as news came out that Edward Lampert, its stubborn billionaire chairman and CEO, had to surrender majority control of the 120-year-old big box retailer when investors in Lampert’s hedge fund pulled money out. With no end in sight for Lampert’s quixotic turnaround efforts, it’s time to question whether there’s any way to save Sears as long as he remains in charge. (Snip) Lampert began at Sears with the ill-fated $12 billion merger with Kmart in 2005. Sales have declined for 27 straight quarters and the company’s stock is down over 70% from its high in 2007.
The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) has no system in place to prevent fraud when individuals apply for tax credits under Obamacare, according to the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration (TIGTA). The IG said in an audit released Tuesday that the IRS has no plan to manage, monitor, or mitigate fraud risk when processing premium tax credits available under the Affordable Care Act (ACA). “The ACA Program has not yet completed a fraud mitigation strategy,” the audit found. “It is important for the IRS to thoroughly consider fraud threats and risks that could impact new ACA systems.” Politico reports: The
Around 100,000 Americans successfully signed up for health insurance in November through the troubled federal online marketplace, HealthCare.gov, a person familiar with the preliminary data confirmed to ABC News. The figure reflects a surge in enrollment as software and hardware fixes to the site were made over the course of the month. In October, only 26,000 people could successfully enroll in Obamacare plans, according to the Department of Health and Human Services. "We´ve been working 24/7 to make improvements, and more consumers are successfully shopping online and enrolling in a health plan each week," Health and Human Services Secretary
NEW HAVEN >> The jail cell death last weekend of Yale University professor Samuel See, known as a brilliant writer and rising star in academia, has shaken up the tight-knit college community. Now adding to the mystery of his unexpected death are apparent connections between the online profiles of See and several escort service websites that include a cache of sexually explicit photos. At least four websites advertising male escort services included a phone number connected to See. The website Ryan Cochran Escort Services includes the same phone number listed on an order of protection filed against See in September.
For many Ann Arborites, Thanksgiving is a day devoted to giving thanks, spending time with family, eating turkey and watching the Detroit Lions. This year, retail giants want that to change. (Snip) The early openings change the game for retail giants looking to boost profits through aggressive holiday sales. It also means millions of retail employees in the U.S. are working on the holiday, and it poses the question to consumers: Is a bargain on a 70-inch television or an Apple iPad worth ditching Thanksgiving dinner? “You couldn’t pay me to stand in a line in the cold on Thanksgiving
Macy´s Inc and a slew of other U.S. retailers are opening on Thanksgiving for the first time ever in a bare-knuckled brawl for a bigger slice of overall holiday sales. But it might not be so easy to lure most Americans from their turkey and football - particularly if the weather is foul. Department store rivals Kohl´s Corp and J.C. Penney Co Inc led a string of Thanksgiving opening announcements after Macy´s said it would open its U.S. stores on the popular holiday, ending a 155-year tradition. Sales trends, survey results and an online "Save Thanksgiving" backlash suggest that shoppers
The question all week long was this: Who are you going to believe, an illegal alien or the president of the United States of America? Obviously, if it’s a president who once went by an alias, Barry Soetoro, you go with Uncle Omar, 100 percent, no questions asked. And so it was that the White House finally admitted to another, uh, misstatement — despite previous denials, Barack/Barry did sleep on his beloved Uncle Omar’s couch in Cambridge when he first moved here to attend Harvard Law School (speaking of which, we’re still waiting to see the president’s grades and his LSAT scores). But the
How do you get your arms around the catastrophe known as Obamacare? Is it even possible? At this point, I’m not sure it is. The list of individual disasters which threaten to ruin one-sixth of the U.S. economy and what has been, up until now, the best healthcare system in the world is exhaustive, and exhausting. The examples I will identify here barely scratch the surface. First but by no means foremost, we have the supposedly new and improved HealthCare.gov. Except it’s not, even the visible part. Stories still abound of people still failing to get in or to get through the enrollment
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has announced a new five-year strategic plan to improve safety for elderly drivers and passengers. Although they are statistically among the safest on the road, the number of older drivers is increasing dramatically — and with it, that group´s numbers of injuries and deaths. Since 2003, the population of older adults, defined as age 65 and older, has increased by 20% and the number of licensed older drivers increased by 21% to 35 million in 2012, according to NHTSA. Last year, NHTSA reported that 5,560 people older than 65 died and 214,000 were injured
President Barack Obama’s Facebook page on Saturday posted a message honoring the dead from Pearl Harbor—accompanied by a picture of Obama descending the stairs next to the Pearl Harbor Memorial. The picture barely fits the name of the Arizona Memorial so it can frame Obama in the foreground. The post´s statement reads: Today, with solemn pride and reverence, let us remember those who fought and died at Pearl Harbor, acknowledge everyone who carried their legacy forward, and reaffirm our commitment to upholding the ideals for which they served. President Obama The Obama Administration´s current shipbuilding plan shrinks the size of
Barack Obama did not tell the whole story this autumn when he tried to make the case that Bashar al-Assad was responsible for the chemical weapons attack near Damascus on 21 August. In some instances, he omitted important intelligence, and in others he presented assumptions as facts. Most significant, he failed to acknowledge something known to the US intelligence community: that the Syrian army is not the only party in the country’s civil war with access to sarin, the nerve agent that a UN study concluded – without assessing responsibility – had been used in the rocket attack. In the months before the attack,
Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel, the hapless, goalpost-shifting so-called "architect" of Obamacare, told Fox News´ Chris Wallace on Fox News Sunday that President Barack Obama´s promise "if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor" was absolutely true--with one important caveat: if you like your doctor, "you can pay for it." Wallace grilled Dr. Emanuel, challenging his false claims that California´s enrollment was keeping pace with the percentage of the young population necessary to keep the system afloat, and pointing out that the president´s promise on doctors would collapse once people lost their insurance or their
The U.S. isn´t called "America the Beautiful" for nothing. Each year, millions of tourists come from home and abroad to see the country´s majestic landscape and iconic sites, from the Grand Canyon to the Statue of Liberty. But there are also cool, quirky attractions, like Vermont´s Ben & Jerry´s Factory and Tennessee´s Graceland, the former home of Rock and Roll King Elvis Presley. From California to New York and everywhere in between, the country is chock-full of incredible attractions that keep luring in visitors. Here are the best tourist attractions in every state.
