GOP Senator: We Are the
Party of the 47 Percent

National Journal, by Michael Catalini

Original Article

Posted By:f64, 1/27/2013 11:11:22 AM

Freshman Republican Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas on Saturday chided the GOP over its 2012 electoral losses, saying "Republicans are and should be the party of the 47 percent," a clear allusion to the remarks caught on video by presidential candidate Mitt Romney during the campaign. Cruz, speaking at the National Review Institute summit in Washington, was quick to say he wasn´t criticizing Romney, but that the party lost a messaging battle with the electorate and that comment was just a symptom of the problem.

Dems get rewarded for lying.

Repubs get bashed for telling the truth.

Same as it ever was.

From "a chicken in every pot" to "a cell phone for every citizen". Ah, the 47%!

With our anti-American press, our perfectly good message is drowned out.

In this basketball game, it´s 8 vs. 5.

Romney miscalculated big time when he refused to fight the obama regime with the same zeal with which he attacked his peers in the primary. Did not along with the RNC fight the obvious voter fraud in the swing states. With a six year running for the highest office one would have expected more expertise from his campaign. Don´t blame the voters when it falls on the shoulder of the nominee.

Cruz in office for five minutes. He has all the answers.

Sorry Mr. Cruz, it´s not all about the hispanics who would just love to vote Republican.

They had their chance,they voted for free stuff.

And that´s the problem. Unless you start explaining why Conservatism is a better alternative to Liberal slavery you will always be the party of the 47%... of the vote.

The American people are obviously too stupid to figure it out on their own. You have to make the case which Republicans have failed to do since 1988.

The 47% remark did turn off a lot of potential Romney voters. My husband and I worked hard all our lives till retirement, owned 2 businesses, employed a lot of people, and paid a lot of taxes- a higher % than what Romney pays and yes, I understand he is paying the capital gains rate. But we still paid more than he does.

Now we are retired and get our SSecurity and Medicare which we did contribute to all those working years. So we are part of Romney´s 47%. I voted for Romney, but husband refused to vote rather than vote for someone who would make such an insulting comment to people who have never been takers. But Romney clearly said we were.

Poster #7: Cruz in office for five minutes. He has all the answers.

Unfortunately, in today´s Washington, all it takes is 10 minutes, and the fresh new faces become corrupted, so we need to look to the newest Senators to hear the wisdom of fly-over country.

I am fed up with the power-brokers, the go-along-to-get-along, the good-old-boys, "it´s-my-turn" men who have been steeping in that sewer and have no fresh conservative ideas and morals to lead this country back to its rightful prominence on the world stage. The entire Republican leadership, both in Congress and the RNC could fall off the map as far as I am concerned, to be replaced be the likes of Ted Cruz, Herman Cain and Sarah Palin. This country deserves a national conservative voice.

I held my nose and voted for Romney, only because I hated the alternative.
I proudly voted for Sarah Palin, praying that John McCain would soon develop "health problems" and decide to "spend more time" with his family.

#1 has it nailed.

#4 never ceases to appear contradictory to what we are saying and somewhat trollish....many different topics and many different days, always the response(calling Mitt Romney "stupid") a troll would shoot at us.

I´m proud to be conservative, a veteran, and a Romney voter. I really think he won this recent fraudulent rip-off of an "election"....Any-hoo..... Like #1 says, no matter what we say or do, our words, our soulful stirrings, our heartfelt love of the USA gets twisted and we get sarcastically ridiculed by the far-left ass-press enemedia rump-swab lap-dog Barry Hussein-adoring liars...happens every DAY! And I am so sick of it! If we nominated GOD or Jesus, they´d rag on them and try to convince the low-vo´s that they are evil rich hateful men who must be stopped!
Speaking of those low-information voters, take some advice from a guy born in ´49 who has seen a boatload of American History throughout the 50´s, 60´s, 70´s, 80´s, 90´s, 10´s.....wow!

Get an education
Be polite and respectful
Work Hard
Serve and love your country
God Family Country
Practice birth control
Never send your kids to Public schools
Dont trust the government
Be conservative
Live Laugh and Love
Rock and Roll!
Salute Lucianne, ´cuz she rocks!

Three days before 20 year-old Adam Lanza killed his mother, then opened fire on a classroom full of Connecticut kindergartners, my 13-year old son Michael (name changed) missed his bus because he was wearing the wrong color pants.

Beware the Goodists

One of the working papers for the recent Jewish People Policy international conference, entitled "Jewish Identity and Identification: New Patterns, Meanings, and Network´s," posed the question whether the Jewish community´s altered material and political circumstance "entail a long-term shift from identification with the have-nots to identification with the haves." (Snip)But their implicit characterization of the divide between political liberalism and conservatism as one between good people who care about those less fortunate than themselves and bad people who don´t strikes me as highly tendentious.

Obamacare Is Still Vulnerable
National Review, by Michael F. Cannon    Original Article
Posted By: f64- 11/10/2012 8:48:13 AM     Post Reply
President Obama has won reelection, and his administration has asked state officials to decide by Friday, November 16, whether their state will create one of Obamacare’s health-insurance “exchanges.” States also have to decide whether to implement the law’s massive expansion of Medicaid. The correct answer to both questions remains a resounding no. State-created exchanges mean higher taxes, fewer jobs, and less protection of religious freedom. States are better off defaulting to a federal exchange. The Medicaid expansion is likewise too costly and risky a proposition.

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

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history. Whatever the burning political question of the day, millions of Americans have relished the opportunity to tune into Rush’s program, knowing that he would quickly take that hot potato, throw a few gallons of verbal kerosene into the mix and elevate the matter into a five alarm fire with a just a few well-chosen words spoken in the style only Rush Limbaugh could

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

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

White babies just 15 months old show racial

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as
