Dems to run against ´chaos´ in ´14
Politico, by Alexander Burns

Original Article

Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 1/3/2013 4:46:41 PM

Democrats, facing a challenging fight to retake the House of Representatives in 2014, see a promising new line of attack rising out of the fiscal cliff follies: casting the Republican congressional majority as a terminally dysfunctional body that cannot perform the basic functions of government, let alone lead the country through difficult times. It’s a meaningful shift from the Democrats’ message in 2012, when President Barack Obama’s party gained a modest eight seats in the House attacking Republicans as ultraconservative allies of the super-rich. After the past two weeks of tumultuous

Comments:
After collectively kicking our posteriors with new taxes, and more to come, the dRATS are going to be relentless in tearing our Country apart. We have seen with the complete capitulation of the LSM to do the White Houses´ bidding, darker days loom in our future. Reelecting Boehner, makes this all a certainty.

This from the party that hasn´t passed a budget in three years?

It doesn`t matter #1. That was not an issue in 2012 and won`t be in 2014. The MSM ignores it so the country has no idea it even exists. Most people have never heard of Benghazi, let alone Harry Reid and no budget for 4 years. Meanwhile, the Dems are always on the move scheming and conniving while the GOP hide from their own shadow.

Get ready for Speaker Pelosi once again,. The Dems will retake the House in 2014. Massive spending and `stimulus` on the horizon. Our govn is now violating our 8th Amendment right against cruel and unusual punishment.

The House should have ignored Obama totally, prepared a budget to solve the problems and told him to sign it or not, they don´t care. Nothing to negotiate. If he signs it: problems solved. If he doesn´t: let ´er tank.

Whatta plan!

1. Create a wholly-artificial set of problems.
2. Mishandle them all.
3. Blame your opponent.
4. Get re-elected.
5. Keep watching you net worth soar... "somehow."

I read this morning that the Dems would have to beat the Republican vote by seven percent to retake the House in 2014. It´s not going to happen if we all row in the same direction.

I don´t know about that, #5. When I hear all the Republican bashing that goes on here, it´s a wonder that we were able to hold the House this time.

There are many of us that don´t trust the GOP to represent us, since they´ve done nothing but capitulate to the Dems, while focusing on being a slightly more to the right of the Dems.

The Dems won´t need to run against chaos, because the repubs have done the job of disintermediating their support base. Why vote for a repub who votes like a Dem, when you can vote for the real thing?

I´ll work hard to find an alternative to my RINO congressman, or will vote for his Dem opponent because then I can be sure what I´ll get.

The Repubs are toast, it´s time for a 3rd party.

They plan to re-take the House in a off-year election? If they couldn´t do it with ´O´ on the ticket they´ll never do it in the 6th year of his reign. I don´t care how disorganized the Republicans are at the moment - the Dems are dreaming.

Who is elected to the House almost always depends on local politics. Since just about all the Republicans now in the House, who would be running for re-election, are from Districts that did not vote for Obama, the liberal Democrats will have a hard time knocking them out in sufficient fashion to take over the House in 2014.

Several posters over the last few days have said they plan to quit the Republican party. I did that last summer and found it kind of liberating. I still felt like I needed a shower after leaving the voting booth, but at least they aren´t taking my vote (as much) for granted. Maybe as an "independent" they will listen to me more, since they apparently don´t listen to their own people.
I would seriously consider a conservative party if one emerged. Get ready for "a vote for conservatives is a vote for the dems".

An interesting headline appeared in the lib portion (don´t ask) of our local paper this morning:

"Amodei [new Congressman from northern Nevada] sides with constituents in ´no´ vote"

Imagine that....

Republicans cannot control the lies democrats choose to tell. They can only control their own message. The question is: when will they start?

There already exist a few "third" parties which advocate smaller government and lower spending. Few people have ever heard of them and none has ever gained any real traction. What good would it do to add another to that group?

There´s nothng wrong with bashing pubbies. Maybe they´ll finally get the message. However, when push comes to shove, we´ll all vote republican just to avoid another horror of Peelousy, Reid, and the jerk in the WH running everything and putting the final death knell on the USA.

How many Republican House seats are in districts that also voted for Obama? Fifteen, including mine, and my congressman´s seat is secure. So make that fourteen.
Look for big gains for the GOP in the 2014 primaries. Why? The low-information voters will stay home, because of the Obama tax hike 77% of taxpayers will have a smaller paycheck, and the national debt will be higher than it is now.
We should start grooming Senatorial candidates now.

Twelve gold bars removed

Doctors can be hard people to shock, but a recent case left one surgeon flabbergasted. A 63-year-old man came to hospital complaining of vomiting and stomach pain. He claimed he´d swallowed the lid of a bottle in an act of anger during a marital dispute, and was given an x-ray. Doctors knew what they were seeing was no bottle cap, but it was not until they operated on the man that the source of his complaint was revealed. Twelve bars of gold weighing nearly 400g were found in the man´s stomach and removed. The BBC reports that police and customs authorities had questioned the businessman and confiscated the gold.

Sydney - A strong 6.6-magnitude earthquake struck off Papua New Guinea´s Bougainville Island on Saturday but there was no risk of a widespread tsunami, seismologists said. The quake, scaled back from an initial reported magnitude of 6.9, hit at 0104 GMT and was centred 59 kilometres (36 miles) southwest of the town of Panguna on Bougainville at a depth of 24 kilometres, the US Geological Survey said. In its initial estimate the USGS said there was a low likelihood of casualties and damage. According to the Hawaii-based Pacific Tsunami Warning Center there was no threat of a destructive widespread tsunami based on historical data.

Behind Qatar´s bet on
the Muslim Brotherhood

Doha, Qatar - The Muslim Brotherhood, the Islamic political organization that has been defanged in almost every area where it was once a key player, has driven a deep rift between the Gulf´s two most powerful players. Months of tension between Qatar and its neighbors came to a head last month when Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) withdrew their ambassadors. Although the regional Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) announced yesterday that the parties had resolved their disagreement, that will likely remain a surface-level fix unless Qatar abandons its support of the Muslim Brotherhood – something it

Obama administration puts off
decision on Keystone oil pipeline

Washington - The Obama administration is putting off its decision on the Keystone XL oil pipeline, likely until after the November elections, by extending its review of the controversial project indefinitely. In a surprise announcement Friday as Washington was winding down for Easter, the State Department said federal agencies will have more time to weigh in on the politically fraught decision — but declined to say how much longer. Officials said the decision will have to wait for the dust to settle in Nebraska, where a judge in February overturned a state law that allowed the pipeline´s path through the state.

New Batch of Clinton

Washington - The National Archives on Friday released its largest batch yet of previously withheld documents from the Clinton administration, with topics including the conflicts in Somalia and Rwanda, Middle East peace negotiations, the Oklahoma City bombing and public figures as varied as Richard M. Nixon and Oprah Winfrey. The bundle that is likely to receive the most attention, though, is one that covers Hillary Rodham Clinton’s ill-fated attempt as first lady to overhaul the health care system. Mrs. Clinton, who ran for president in 2008, is considering a second attempt in 2016. Here are some notable sections:

Washington - The CIA’s former top lawyer disputes Senate findings that the spy agency lied about its brutal interrogations of terrorists, insisting the tactics produced useful intelligence and flatly denying that the CIA misled the former Bush administration, Congress and the American public. At the same time, John Rizzo, who left the CIA as acting general counsel in 2009, said some CIA employees or contractors were overzealous in the use of the tactics but that the CIA informed lawyers at the Justice Department of the excesses. Rizzo was responsible for helping to create the legal foundation for permitting waterboarding,

GM to seek court protection

General Motors Co said it would ask a U.S. court to bar lawsuits related to actions before its 2009 bankruptcy, signaling a tougher stance toward legal claims stemming from its recent recall over faulty ignition switches. GM has said it is protected from liability for claims related to incidents that occurred before it exited bankruptcy in 2009, and has taken steps to raise those issues with the court by filing motions to stay recall-related lawsuits while it asks that bankruptcy court to clarify the extent of that protection. In a filing with the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Texas on Tuesday, GM asked for a stay on litigation

After presenting at the Academy Awards this year, Kim Novak didn’t want to leave her house. The Hitchcock screen siren, 81, was too humiliated to venture from her home near the Rogue River in Oregon. She read the cruel posts and Internet snark about her appearance, and it was just too much. “It got to me like it gets kids and teenagers,” she told the Associated Press. The “Vertigo” actress, considered one of the great beauties in her day, posted a note on her Facebook wall Thursday, acknowledging that she’d gotten fat injections in her face and addressing her halted

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?
