Obama: I´d Get More Done
If GOP Wasn´t Punished
By Fox and Limbaugh for
Working With Democrats

"If a Republican member of Congress is not punished on Fox News or by Rush Limbaugh for working with a Democrat on a bill of common interest, then you´ll see more of them doing it." So said Barack Obama in an interview just published by The New Republic: FRANKLIN FOER, EDITOR NEW REPUBLIC: Are there any forces for reform within the Republican Party, people you´ve been able to establish some sort of working relationship with? PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA: Well, look, I´ve always believed that there are a bunch of Republicans

Very Nixonian but without the need for privacy and the open-reel tape recorders.

It seems as if he sees the world as a mass of people in America (and abroad) just wishing and hoping he will do more of what he´d done to the country in the previous four years.
Does it cross his mind that Fox and Limbaugh have the support of the people?
Nah, I guess not.

What democrats Barry? Do you mean those faux democrats the progressives --who drove out all but their own radical selves?
That´s where the Republicans gained their more liberal brothers as they had no where to go. They waver back and forth on issues.
Now years later it seems as if they did not totally meld with the far right enough to create a really working party.
Perhaps the party can win them back BUT your radical fringe will have to learn to cooperate with them.
The best solution seems to be divide into liberal and Conservative parties who then can try to form a working government with the middle road who probably claim the status independent.
No more democratic or republican labels.

Obviously Obama is yearning for the old days when wimpy Republicans, happy to be in the minority and to get invited to liberal parties inside the Washington, DC beltway just went along to get along with the liberal Democrats. They would talk a conservative game when back in their home States, but when they returned to Washington, DC they played the liberals game.

Thank God for Fox News and Rush Limbaugh.
Ever wonder why the liberal mass media and the libnut wackos attack Fox and Rush? Think it could be that they can´t stand the competition and the truth Fox and Rush broadcast.

Must be that Fox and Rush are RACIST because they don´t kowtow to zero.

Poor zero - nobody loves him.

When republicans are in power,left wing orgs.have every right to attack them on a daily basis even making things up like Valerie Plame being and undercover agent or the president not being able to fire federal states attorneys,who serve at the pleasure of the president.

Republicans get attacked from sun up to sundown by the moonbats at MSNBC and that´s fine. However if Fox or Limbaugh questions Obama´s motives,they´re standing in the way of progress.

One way or another Obama has gotten everything he wanted since being elected but he flips the failures of all this stuff on republican obstruction.

Obama won´t release his quarterly stimulus reports because he knows it´s all pure waste and the money disbursements can be traced back to his donors.

Most of all it didn´t create and permanent private sector jobs.
A lot of this stimulus is being spent in the immediate DC area creating a huge boom there,while the rest of the country gets zilch.Even so,there´s still homeless people right next to the WH.

What i find hilarious is people like Soros pays people to sit there and listen to talk radio and Fox and yet they remain stupid. It´s because simple common sense doesn´t sink in with these people. They take Limbaugh out of context all the time and can´t even tell when he´s being sarcastic.

Rush has been trying to keep a low profile and here he is in the cross hairs of The Skeet Shooter in Chief. Speaking of.... Look up skeet in the urban dictionary.
It´s retribution for the SSiC calling us tea baggers.

Note to SSiC: Beltway Republican Elites do not listen to Rush.

Sorry to say it, but he´s targeting Limbaugh bc Limbaugh is losing his cred with the public. I still listen to him daily, but Limbaugh is NOT going to be our torch bearer. How can he? Four wives no children is not a culture savior.

Limbaugh sounds more and more like a terrified billionaire protecting his nest egg, trying to round up the little people to vote to save his tax rate.

I am sorry. I take no pleasure in this observation. I am a rock solid conservative as anyone knows who has seen me post on this forum.

Long-term unemployed struggle
to find — and keep — jobs
Washington Post, by Ylan Q. Mui    Original Article
Posted By: Dreadnought- 4/18/2014 10:37:47 PM     Post Reply
For the long-term unemployed, finding a job is hard — but keeping one may be even harder. New research tracking people who have been out of work for six months or longer found that 23 percent of them landed a job within a few months of the study. But a year later, more than a third of that group was unemployed again or out of the labor force altogether. The findings are the latest in a bleak but growing body of literature suggesting long-term unemployment has become a trap that is difficult to escape. Economists say that means the long-term unemployed could become a permanent underclass, left behind by the nation’s broader

Social Security stops trying
to collect on old debts by
seizing tax refunds
Washington Post, by Marc Fisher    Original Article
Posted By: Dreadnought- 4/14/2014 10:13:04 PM     Post Reply
The Social Security Administration announced Monday that it will immediately cease efforts to collect on taxpayers’ debts to the government that are more than 10 years old. The action comes after The Washington Post reported that the government was seizing state and federal tax refunds that were on their way to about 400,000 Americans who had relatives who owed money to Social Security. In many cases, the people whose refunds were intercepted had never heard of any debt, and the debts dated as far back as the middle of the past century. “I have directed an immediate halt to further

Wendy Davis Ethical Questions Surface

Despite promises to the contrary, it appears that State Senator Wendy Davis (D-Fort Worth) voted on bills that affect her clients and favorably impact the bottom line of her law firm. “I have never done anything in a way that represents a conflict in my voting and something that would benefit me personally,” she said in an interview, but state records seem to tell a different story. The Dallas Morning News´ Senior Political Writer Wayne Slater (DMN) reported that Davis supported legislation governing a toll road project. That would be all well and good except for the fact that the

Democrats Lose Two More Special
Elections They Didn’t Expect To
National Review Online, by John Fund    Original Article
Posted By: Dreadnought- 4/14/2014 8:38:34 AM     Post Reply
Democrats have had a recurring problem in special elections this year: Their voters aren’t turning out. If a weak economy and continued Obamacare problems persist, the November elections could be a disaster for Democrats. Last week, Democrats lost two special elections they weren’t planning to. Arlington, Va., is a classic wealthy ObamaTown, filled with government workers and limousine liberals. Mitt Romney won only 29 percent of the vote in 2012. But last Tuesday, Democrats lost their first election for the five-member Arlington County Board in 15 years when John Vihstadt, a Republican running as an independent, won a vacancy on

Nevada ranch standoff could leave
dirt on Harry Reid’s reputation

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said little as federal agents seized and then released cattle last week from the Bundy ranch, but there is little doubt that the highly charged episode was threatening to become a political headache for the Nevada Democrat. The Bureau of Land Management is headed by former longtime Reid aide Neil Kornze, who was confirmed by the Senate as BLM director on Tuesday, just as federal authorities descended on the cattle ranch outside Mesquite, Nev. Mr. Kornze issued a statement Saturday saying that the bureau would return the cattle and withdraw its agents from the ranch

Democrats settle on fairness
issues hoping to avoid a repeat

Washington Post, by Wesley Lowery    Original Article

On the defensive about their prospects in the midterm elections this fall, congressional Democrats have spent all of April savaging the Republican budget proposal, decrying the Koch brothers and championing a series of bills meant to ingratiate themselves to struggling middle-class voters. In promoting legislation that would extend unemployment benefits, increase the minimum wage and promote equal pay for women, the Democrats have declared themselves the party that will ensure a “fair shot” for all. Republicans, they insist, are the party of special interests. It has been a classic Washington messaging campaign for these partisan

On a trip to Moscow early in her tenure as secretary of state, Hillary Rodham Clinton played the role of international saleswoman, pressing Russian government officials to sign a multibillion-dollar deal to buy dozens of aircraft from Boeing. A month later, Clinton was in China, where she jubilantly announced that the aerospace giant would be writing a generous check to help resuscitate floundering U.S. efforts to host a pavilion at the upcoming World’s Fair. Boeing, she said, “has just agreed to double its contribution to $2 million.” Clinton did not point out that, to secure the donation, the State Department

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

White House blames fox for

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.

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

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too
