White House: GOP responsible
for contracting economy

The Hill [Washington, DC], by Justin Sink

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 1/30/2013 3:23:37 PM

White House press secretary Jay Carney laid the blame for a surprise economic contraction squarely at the feet of congressional Republicans Wednesday, saying economic threats during the "fiscal cliff" negotiations had prevented important defense spending. "Our economy is facing a major headwinds, and that´s Republicans in Congress," Carney said. The Commerce Department projected Wednesday that the nation´s gross domestic product (GDP) shrank by 0.1 percent in the fourth quarter of 2012. Carney said that was partially attributable

Right on que! Imagine how wonderful it would be if we actually had rational people in the White House. This is why we have 0bama for a second term. The idiots that elected him believe these outrageous lies.

Unreal. Obama has the economic skills of an eggplant, as anyone remotely paying attention for the last 4 years well knows.

This administration *needs* to be exposed for the corrupt, inept crony crew of misfits that it indeed is...

The White House is full of crap and we all know it. When it feeds us crap and blames Republicans for anything that goes wrong and takes credit for everything that appears to go right, Republican leaders need to be prepared to come out swinging to defend themselves. Even better, they need to anticipate the crap and put the truth out there BEFORE the crap-feeding commences.

Seriously Boehner et al., get a friggin´ clue. The rest of us could make a fortune betting on what the White House is going to say; it isn´t difficult to anticipate.

Notice how Republicans will have no strong language to counter this.

Nothing like "socialism leads to poverty and stagnation"

Nothing like "Obama is a socialist and follows failed socialist prescriptions"

...nothing like that from republican leadership.

Democrats can lie all day long and not be called on it because they have dumbed down the population so much that people will believe anything they say. This is why it is important for us to all get out there and work on educating the public, teaching them the truth, and countering the lies whenver they come up. We cannot pretend that is doesn´t matter.

So why is the economy dependent on government spending to barely tread water? In a normal recovery GDP would be 4-5%/year and a temporary dip in gov´t spending would hardly be noticed.

No reason to trot out an Archie comic books character like Carney to say it first.

8 of the last 9 qtrs government expenditures have been negative. The only exception was 3rd Qtr of last year when Obama was buying the election. Exports were negative as were private inventories you can´t blame the GOP for that. Or for all the business activity brought forward into the qtr to avoid higher taxes. That kept the gdp number from looking even worse. Carney makes Baghdad Bob look honest.

It must be an awful burden to be the smartest people in the world trying to lead the great unwashed into the promised land. Especially when they don´t believe that steaming pile of poop you just dropped smells like a rose even though they told you it did.

The GOP is comprised of a bunch of idiots at the helm. It puzzles my why anyone would still put their faith in this dead party.

It´s waaaay past time to move away from the traditional two-party system and consider voting for the right *candidate* rather than your idea of the right *party*.

Our Founders warned us about parties. It pays to heed their warnings.

If the Donks think the GOP is as powerful as that, with just a majority in the House, then the Donks would be wise to lay down arms in despair and surrender to Boehner. Otherwise we may raise our eyebrows or something, possibly causing earthquakes and raging fires. So don´t make us mad. Quit Today.

Researchers at Princeton and Northwestern universities have pored over 1,800 US policies and concluded that America is an oligarchy. Instead of looking out for the majority of the country’s citizens, the US government is ruled by the interests of the rich and the powerful, they found. No great surprises there, then. But the government is not the only American power whose motivations need to be rigourously examined. Some 2,400 miles away from Washington, in Silicon Valley, Google is aggressively gaining power with little to keep it in check. It has cosied up to governments around the world so effectively that its chairman,

Steve Lynch is a Democratic Rep. from Massachusetts who doesn’t hesitate to buck the party line from a centrist point of view, and to speak openly about problems in the party and with party positions. Lynch ran for Senate to fill John Kerry’s seat, but lost in the primary to now-Senator Ed Markey. Lynch recently was interviewed by The Boston Herald about upcoming Obamacare problems and how devastating they will be for Democrats. That runs contrary to cut current news cycle Democratic spin that (allegedly) meeting sign up goals means electoral problems related to Obamacare are over. U.S. Rep. Stephen Lynch, the

Then-Sens. Joe Biden and John Kerry were both opposed to Hillary Clinton’s 1993 health-care reform program, according to documents released by the Clinton presidential library. Clinton marked a handwritten “No” beside Biden’s name on Clinton’s list of Capitol Hill lawmakers that she needed to win over for her universal health care law, known as the “Clinton health plan” or “Hillarycare,” to pass. John Kerry, meanwhile, was marked with a “Probably not.” “Hillarycare” ended up dying in the Democratic-controlled Senate in 1994 without coming to a floor vote. As vice president, Biden has been a loyal supporter of the Obama administration’s

Wayne Crews of the Competitive Enterprise Institute and Alexis de Tocqueville, author of the classic Democracy in America, were born in different times and places. But the French aristocrat and American think tanker have the measure of the federal behemoth in the age of Obama. Writing in 1835, Tocqueville eloquently predicted how it would function, while Crews today supplies in his annual compilation of federal rules and regulations, “10,000 Commandments,” the hard numbers that describe the behemoth´s contemporary reach and costs.

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.

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

Monaco’s full, prepared text is available here. She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15. Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings.

If the Rev. John DeBonville could preach a sermon to lift the souls of churchgoers across America, his message would be simple: Stop dressing so tacky for church. DeBonville has heard about the “come as you are” approach to dressing down for Sunday service, but he says the Sabbath is getting too sloppy. When he scans the pews of churches, DeBonville sees rows of people dressed in their Sunday worst. They saunter into church in baggy shorts, flip-flop sandals, tennis shoes and grubby T-shirts. Some even slide into the pews carrying coffee in plastic foam containers as if they’re going to Starbucks. “It’s like

President Obama asserts that 8 million people have signed up for Obamacare, as though that were something to be proud of. In fact, Obamacare has always been a fiasco from a fiscal perspective–a black hole of subsidies and expanded Medicaid, with largely fictitious mechanisms in place to pay for it. As the number of subsidized participants grows, the disaster gets worse. Charles Blahous explains: Our national discussion…is missing the truly significant story here; what is unfolding before our eyes is a colossal fiscal disaster, poised to haunt legislators and taxpayers for decades to come. It is quite possible that the ACA is
