Dukakis seen as possible Senate
replacement if Kerry tapped for State

The Hill (DC), by Alexander Bolton

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 12/17/2012 6:08:37 AM

Former Massachusetts Gov. Michael Dukakis, the 1988 Democratic presidential nominee, may be headed back to the political spotlight as he’s considered a likely interim replacement for Sen. John Kerry (D-Mass.). President Obama is set to tap Kerry to succeed Hillary Clinton as secretary of State, according to media reports. This means Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick (D) needs to find someone to fill Kerry’s seat until a special election can be held in the late spring or early summer. Dukakis, who is 79, has remained politically active. He campaigned for Sen.-elect Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) this fall and teaches at Northeastern University.

The Demonrat party is so in love with mind numb "legacies" that it is laughable. No trouble with Dukakis following the communist Party Line.

#6, Reid has already said the cloture requirement, now 60, is going to be reduced, probably to 51. (Remember how the democrats cried and complained when the republicans threatened the ´nuclear option?´
Reid is using the nuclear option.
From beginning to end, I predict Jon Cary will be confirmed in one week. Same with Hagel at Defense.
Elections have consequences. Just watch the creepy creatures President Zero appoints to the U.S. Supreme Court.

The front men for this regime don´t matter much. This agenda has been carefully crafted for many years. While the prize is totalitarian control of the population, the vectors are:

1-"Redistribution & Fairness"
2-Retribution for "Colonial Exploitation"
3-Alienation of population into hostile sub groups.
4-Stigmatizing and shaming of the military.
5-Promotion of "Gangsta Culture".
6-Disarming the productive sector (Disarming of the new slaves).
7-Environmental extortion operations.
8-Fiscal & Monetary chaos.

I´d worry more if they were bringing in young and charming leading men types.

I guess they can only tolerate one of them.

OMG. The worst thing about Lucy.com is that you Ldotter´s are so fast with and all the good comments are already taken by the time I wake up, have my coffee and try to jump in.

With the re-election of Obummer, Obammy, Ozero, Obozo, etc., etc., etc. what is there to say? I feel like I´m in some kind of surrealistic B., C., or D movie. Can it be worse than this so called administration? Can it be more absurd or bizarre than this administration? More incompetent, more frightening? More totally detached from any kind of reality? Think of the bizarre people attempting to run and ruin our country. "The Won" himself and his shrill harridan and scold of a so called wife, Pelosi, Reid, Boxer, Feinstein, Jarrett, the shameful, strange and incompetent Supreme Court appointees Kagan and Sotomayor,the "concussed" Hildabeast/thing, and now, the lying, pompous, smug, arrogant and condescending traitor Jon Francois Carry.

Excuse me, but WTH is wrong with this country that we would vote ourselves into such a self-destructive death spiral with these absurd "leaders"? Is it just me or is this all too depressingly depressing. I´m hoping that this nightmare is just a dream, just a dream.

You guys are fun! This may sound sick, but maybe obama could appoint Senator Tricky Dicky Durbin who is no "spring chicken" as ambassador to Libya. He was sent to Turkey last year to assess their problems with their borders and helped Illinois (the brokest, bankrupt state) sell a prison to the Feds for Gitmo N. These "old, white" democrats are really somethin!

As if we should all be outraged by the behavior of this delusional crazy woman who thought there might be civil unrest in the near future and wanted some protection. That is the responsible thing to do, not a wacko thing to do! I see MSM fingerprints all over a lefty talking point of - paranoid wacko gun freak driving the story. So sad.

The current scenario in DC would have to work really hard to come up to the level of a D grade movie. Amusing that the dems, after accusing the RNC of ´old white men´ attacking Susan Rice, is now using ´old white men´ for their new nominations.

I guess that because these retreads are dems, that´s ok. And I also didn´t think it was possible for the Senate stature to decrease any more than it already has with dingy Harry in charge. Where do you go from bottom of the barrel?

If Deval Patrick picks Michael Dukakis at age 79, he is picking him to hold down the seat until someone else, maybe even Deval Patrick himself can run for the seat later in the year. That´s if Barack Obama does not pick Patrick for Attorney General if Eric Holder decides to leave or if a vacancy on the Supreme Court does not pop up that Obama can nominate Patrick to fill.

Here´s a lesson in online security: Passwords are important. They keep your information safe. Crucially, they also prevent other people from impersonating you. Unfortunately, one of The Switch´s readers learned that the hard way. On a story explaining how the Heartbleed bug could slow down the Internet, a commenter scoffed at the "Heartbleed thingamajig," arguing that the Internet´s handwringing over security was mostly overwrought: I couldn´t give a flying fig about the Heartbleed thingamajig. Two years already the thing has been running loose ... and not a word of someone crying over its damage. Say ... does anyone really know its origin?

Proponents of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) insist that the law will extend health insurance to millions, expand access to health care, and improve Americans’ overall health. But, as the New York Times recently reported, at least 20 percent of the new enrollees have not paid their premiums. They therefore do not really have insurance. But even for those enrollees paying premiums, having health insurance is not the same thing as getting good health care, or any health care. In fact, it doesn’t matter how many Americans obtain insurance under the ACA. Most will have difficulty finding a physician. Many Americans

Lt.

Exactly forty years ago Patricia Hearst stunned the nation when she turned up as a bank robber, a mere two months after she was kidnapped by the violent cult that called itself “The Symbionese Liberation Army.” Her astonishing transformation was documented by bank cameras on April 15, 1974. There she was — granddaughter of William Randolph “Citizen Kane” Hearst — wielding a sawed-off assault rifle and terrorizing people in a bank. She had recently announced in a taped SLA communique that she had voluntarily joined the SLA in its fight against the “fascist” United States. She took the nom de

Chevron, Dole cases expose lawyer corruption

A few years ago, the corruption convictions of several prominent plaintiffs´ lawyers put a spotlight on dishonesty in American civil courts. Now the sleaze has burst back into the news with cases involving Chevron and Dole Food Co., this time with an international twist. Last month, a federal court in Manhattan found that a U.S. plaintiffs´ lawyer had masterminded a multibillion dollar fraud and extortion scheme against Chevron in Ecuador. Three days later, a California appellate court affirmed the dismissal of a lawsuit against Dole as a "fraud on the court" perpetrated by U.S. and Nicaraguan plaintiffs´ lawyers. These rulings are welcome

Every year, when Pulitzers are announced, most of them are awarded to big corporate media outlets with huge staffs and budgets devoted specifically to the contest. But not always. On Monday, David Philipps, an investigative reporter for the Colorado Springs Gazette, claimed a Pulitzer for his three-day series, Other Than Honorable. Philipps exposed the shameful treatment of members of the U.S. military, many of them wounded combat veterans, in the drawdown of American military forces. Too often,

Another sob story in the left-wing media about Dzhokhar Tsarnaev? Yesterday it was the turn of The New York Times, under the headline, “Marathon Bombing Suspect Waits in Isolation.” Needless to say, the ACLU is up in arms. Boo-hoo-hoo. And if he were in general population, rest assured the headline would have been, “Marathon Bombing Suspect Waits in Fear of his Life.” Needless to say, the ACLU would be up in arms. This one was perfectly timed — on the first anniversary of the Joker placing one of his kettle bombs in front of little Martin Richard, who had moments

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box. Indeed Kelly all but genuflected in front of this woman. Kept her on thru

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes. Connery just has to show up on time. In economics you devalue a currency by printing too much of it. In film you

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)
