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".

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

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.

New York - Naveed Shinwari hasn’t seen his wife in 26 months. He suspects it’s because he refused to become an informant for the FBI. (Snip) Filed on Tuesday night in the US district court for the southern district of New York, the case accuses the US attorney general, Eric Holder, the FBI director, James Comey, the homeland security secretary, Jeh Johnson, and two dozen FBI agents of creating an atmosphere in which Muslims who are not accused of wrongdoing are forbidden from flying, apparently as leverage to get them snitching on their communities. Their lawsuit seeks not only the plaintiffs’ removal from the no-fly list but also

Washington - The United States has decided to lift its hold on the delivery of 10 Apache attack helicopters to Egypt imposed last year after the military´s ouster of President Mohamed Mursi and an ensuing crackdown against protesters, the Pentagon said on Tuesday. Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel informed his Egyptian counterpart, Colonel General Sedki Sobhi, of the decision in a call, saying the helicopters would support Egypt´s counterterrorism operations in the Sinai Peninsula, Pentagon spokesman Rear Admiral John Kirby said.

Washington - US Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel got a first-hand look at a life-size robot that resembles Hollywood´s "Terminator," the latest experiment by the Pentagon´s hi-tech researchers. But unlike the cinematic version, the hulking Atlas robot is designed not as a warrior but as a humanitarian machine that would rescue victims in the rubble of a natural disaster, officials said on Tuesday. The 6-foot-2-inch (187 centimeters) Atlas is one of the entrants in a contest designed to produce a man-like life-saver machine, the brainchild of the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA).

Manama - A Bahraini court has sentenced 12 men to life in prison for spying, receiving training from Iran´s Revolutionary Guard and processing weapons and explosives, a defence lawyer and rights activist said on Tuesday. Bahrain accuses Shi´ite power Iran of fuelling unrest in the country since a 2011 uprising led by the Shi´ite Muslim community demanding reforms and more share in running the kingdom ruled by the Sunni Muslim al-Khalifa dynasty. Tehran denies the accusation, but defends the cause of Bahrain´s Shi´ite opposition. Attorney Fatima al-Adraj said the court convicted the men on Sunday, and sentenced two others to

Washington - The administration of Iranian President Hassan Rouhani has admitted to conducting a political reshuffle within the atomic energy agency in an effort to mute officials opposed to negotiations with the West over the country’s nuclear program. In a statement issued on Monday, a spokesman for Iran’s Atomic Energy Organization said that “a limited number of people were concerned, and they were neither scientists nor were they fired.” The statement was made after rumors of widespread dismissals proliferated on local websites last week. Rouhani and his nuclear negotiators are under intense pressure from Islamic hardliners

Justice Sonia Sotomayor’s fierce defense of the affirmative action efforts such as the ones that helped move her from a Bronx housing project to the upper echelons of American law found renewed voice Tuesday in an impassioned dissent that accused colleagues of trying to “wish away” racial inequality — and drew a tart response from Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr. In her most personal moment in 41 /2 years on the court, Sotomayor read part of her dissent from the bench to emphasize her disagreement with six colleagues who upheld Michigan’s constitutional amendment banning the consideration of race in public university admissions.

General Motors moved on Tuesday to prevent future safety lapses by expanding its oversight of problematic vehicles even as the automaker continued to take an aggressive legal posture in dealing with its past missteps. (Snip) The legal filing, which was made late Monday in the Federal Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of New York, asked the judge who approved the company’s 2009 restructuring agreement to explicitly enforce a provision that shielded the “new” company from liability for incidents that took place before July 10, 2009, the day the agreement went into effect. Most of the cars in the recall were manufactured before

The Obama administration is poised to entertain a flood of new clemency applications from thousands of federal prisoners who were given harsh sentences under mandatory-minimum laws following drug convictions, Attorney General Eric Holder said Monday. Holder said in a short videotaped statement that he wants to shrink the federal prison population by a modest amount while ensuring ´that those who have paid their debts have a chance to become productive citizens.´ At the center of the move is a set of old sentencing rules that punished crack-cocaine offenders with more time behind bars than users or traffickers of powder cocaine.

Former Sen. Bob Dole (R-Kan.) said a number of junior GOP senators considering a presidential run in 2016 do not yet have the experience — specifically naming Rand Paul (Ky.), Marco Rubio (Fla.) and Ted Cruz (Texas). The former 1996 GOP presidential candidate sounded particularly skeptical of Cruz in an interview this week with The Wichita Eagle. "A number of the younger members, first-termers like Rand Paul, Rubio and that extreme-right-wing guy, Ted Cruz — all running for president now. I don´t think they´ve got enough experience yet," Dole said. The 90-year-old former senator said, however, his main concern about 2016 is living

If Jeb reaches for the nomination, there will be a titanic battle between the party establishment and the Tea Party. Steve Schmidt, McCain’s strategist in 2008, insists that in the end Republicans usually settle on the most electable candidate. To get by, this Bush may be forced to trim his positions, although the cautionary tale of Romney suggests that he would have to tack artfully and carefully for the sake of the general election. Certainly he will have the resources to outlast, discredit, and disqualify his rivals.

Michelle Obama:

Washington - Michelle Obama said "splurging is the key to life" if you regularly eat right and stay active. Her biggest guilty pleasure: French fries. "How would you appreciate vegetables if you never had chocolate?" she asked. "You couldn´t live without a little chocolate, a little French fries." The first lady took questions from children reporters Monday after appearing at the White House Easter Egg Roll. She told the children that if they eat right the majority of the time, then a splurge or snack is not going to hurt them. "I still splurge when I can, but that's why I try to exercise almost every day," she said.

Public Trust: Sixty-one percent polled say President Obama lies "some of the time" or "most of the time" on matters of national importance. Americans have to ask: Why do we let him get away with it? It´s no surprise that a Fox News poll of 1,012 registered voters last week found immense distrust of a president whose main domestic initiative was based on a lie. The shock is that the same poll found his disapproval level down to its lowest since last fall. Asked, "How often do you think Barack Obama lies to the country on important matters?" 37% replied "most of

There’s a pattern of falsifying statistics throughout the entire Census Bureau. And anyone who attempts to blow the whistle on the fraud is either retaliated against or ignored, according to two new sources who have experienced the process firsthand. As I’ve been writing for more than six months, the Census Bureau office in Philadelphia uncovered a case of fraud in 2010, did nothing about it and allowed the practice to continue. In that instance, a data collector named Julius Buckmon was faking reports that went into the nation’s all-important jobless tally and consumer-inflation survey. Because the Census Bureau’s surveys are scientific — meaning
