About That ´Permanent
Democratic Majority´

Wall Street Journal, by Karl Rove

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 1/31/2013 6:04:46 AM

Many are arguing these days that President Obama has forged a new majority coalition of women, minorities, young people and upscale cultural liberals so large and durable that he can do what no president has done before—pursue a very liberal agenda without serious opposition or defections from his own party. Demography is destiny, this argument holds, and it is irrevocably on the side of Mr. Obama and the Democratic Party. (Snip)Start with the obvious: If demographics were determinative, then Republicans shouldn´t have gained 63 seats in the House of Representatives in 2010—the largest midterm shift since 1938—while also

Yeah yeah. Both "parties" are looking too similar to me, only interested in their own power. The people need a voice.

The dems would be a permanent minority if they stopped illegal immigration,had a national ID voters card and lazy white suburbanites would get off their ass and vote.

We have to completely negate the media /punditry created belief that your vote only matters if you live in Ohio. If I had a dollar for every time I heard ´´it all comes down to Ohio´´.... How many voters stayed home because their local races were boring and they´d been told by their betters their vote for POTUS wouldn´t make a difference?

Local GOP has made big strides in blue States. If you don´t bother to ask for people´s votes you surely won´t get them. We have fifty States. Make your case in every one.

Plus the vote, er, enhancers can focus like laser beam on a state or two.

Every time a party wins the White House for a second term, there are tons of articles about the long-term impeding doom of the opposition party. I´ve been reading them since I was a high school kid in 1972 and 1973.

And guess what? The other party comes back, maybe because the new "kings" over-reach, they screw up the economy one more time, or whatever. Admittedly, the Democrats have a few more opportunities to blame the Republicans because the refs (media) are in the RAT´s pocket -- and currently I´m not sure it´s a back pocket, but let´s move on.

The GOP -- or a new conservative party if the GOP elite doesn´t realize there is a change in tactics, especially by the RAT media and academia -- will rise again. And I think the 2014 midterms and the 2016 presidential race could be the proof.

That bulbous, balloon head of Rove´s is so full of methane gas that it can blow any moment. I can´t stand this blabber mouth. I´ve put him into the same category with Peggy Noonan - the category of not worth reading or listening to any longer.
Shut up Karl and just go away. (The only other Karl that I know of that spelled his name with a K was Karl Marx.)

Well, it´s settled, then. Listen to Rove, stick with the GOP, amnesty some illegals, and stand by for the dawning of the next era of establishment Republican Party opportunism.

Karl Rove needs to rearrange his deck chair over to the side with the iceberg.

We need to learn to tolerate people who do not think exactly as we do. Do we have so many Republicans in our party that we can start urging people to get lost?

It used to be Boehner who was asked to get lost, now many are praising him. The same could happen with Rove. Someday he will do something you approve of.

Rove, How did your backing of RINOs work for you in the 2012 Election-----being a liberal Republican wasn´t exactly a pathway to election. I believe you are irrelevant and your endorsement wasn´t worth ´snot´.
Did I hear your comment correctly when you said this about Gov. Palin-----who was the boot strap holder of the 3 new Senators elected to Congress in 2012. Yep, one was Ted Cruz who put your pretty boy "go along to get along RINO" Dewhurst in the back seat, right?

Personally, the only guy that makes me happy lately is the new Congressman from Texas. Cruz is the only guy I´ve heard stand up for what he said and refuse to apologize for having an opinion outside what the press considers proper. I don´t care what any others say right now. I only want to hear a man who means what he says and is truly Conservative.

Let´s see:

Mrs. Palin is stupid.
Rick Perry is on drugs.
Chris Christie is fat.
Newt is over.
No more Bush.
Haley Barbour talks funny.
McCain is a RINO.
Lindsay Graham is a RINO.
Heck, anybody I disagree with is a RINO...

The hard fact is that there are a lot of people who want to get their hands on taxpayer funds. The Dims are by far the worst culprits.

When the majority focuses on what these kind of people are doing with the public money there may be a restoration of sanity.

The Republicans have a "messaging" problem within their own party. That´s why so many "Republicans" stayed home and let BO win a second term. Personally I don´t get it, the worst Republican was far better than BO but they did it anyway. So what´s up with that? Are some demanding absolute compliance with hard lined Conservatism? Good luck with that. You will never win an election or have an effective voice. Issues like immigration are not going to be concluded by kicking all illegals out of the Country. Not going to happen. I would love to see Social Security become a private account but I doubt I will ever see it. Maybe the IRA system could be enhanced. But I know I have to "settle" for less than my desires. So what can we "live with" and what "must" get done?

#18, I agree you, but you may not have been here when some of the loudest posters were telling us that any Democrat is better than a "RINO", thus the cheering when Republican senators were defeated at the polls by the ones with a D behind the name. There was even cheering for Granny Warren over our own Scott Brown, because Brown didn´t fit the template. I will never comprehend the logic of preferring any Democrat over a Republican incumbent. The numbers matter. Obviously, I wasn´t a fan of some of the R´s, either, but there´s no way I´m cheering for a Democrat to defeat one of our own.

I keep hearing about the millions of conservatives that stayed home and didn´t vote. Can someone prove that? I never heard a word about Romney being a Mormon or that anyone wouldn´t vote for him. Early on I heard he was not a true conservative but if he were the candidate, they would vote for him. If someone was truly a conservative, I can´t believe they didn´t go to the polls and vote for Romney because even if he had 3 eyes, he would have been better than the other guy. If that many conservatives did truly not vote, then I guess we deserve what we got. But I´d like to see proof. Saying it doesn´t make it so.

True Conservatives are tired of being sucked in. We find ourselves unable to trust either party. Both lie to us, both think more highly of themselves than they do of our Country. That is what angers us and that is we seem to be eating our own at times. Our own have become too much like d´rats. All Conservatves ask is that we nominate a True Conservative, we stand behind that person as a group and we work to elect that person. IF the GOP were to find that Right person, then and only then would there be no problem. No degree needed to figure that out.

Buffalo, N.Y., Gathers Pussy
Willows for Dyngus Day

To prepare for Dyngus Day, Eddy Dobosiewicz drives to an abandoned lot in east Buffalo, N.Y., in search of an elusive commodity: pussy willows. Dyngus Day celebrations, to be staged Monday in Buffalo and a handful of other U.S. cities, trace their roots to ancient Polish fertility rites centered around the end of Lent and the advent of spring. As part of the festivities, young men traditionally splash water on women they fancy. Women carry pussy willow branches to hit the men they like. But this year, after an especially harsh winter, Dyngus Day organizers are worried that there won´t be enough

Harry Reid isn’t backing down from his claim that rancher Cliven Bundy’s supporters are “domestic terrorists.” It’s astonishing rhetoric given the White House’s characterization of the mass shooting by a genuine terrorist, Major Nidal Hasan, who killed 13 Americans at the Fort Hood Army base after yelling “Allahu Akbar!” (God is great.) Rather than labeling Hasan’s actions “domestic terrorism,” the Obama administration is prosecuting him for having committed “workplace violence.” Democratic rhetoric is become ever more desperate and overheated as we approach the November midterm elections. Last week, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said that GOP positions on immigration were motivated by

Obama admin wants to require companies

The Obama administration is poised to change regulations to allow for union “ambush elections” in which workers have less time to decide whether or not to join a union — and in which workers’ phone numbers and home addresses are provided to unions. The administration’s National Labor Relations Board’s (NLRB) proposed rules would allow for union elections — in which workers at a company vote whether or not to unionize — to be held 10 days after a petition is filed. And what, exactly, would be happening to the unions during those 10 days? The new rules require employers to disclose

Following the deadly avalanche that killed at least 13 people, the Discovery Channel has realized that a live jump off the summit of Mount Everest is just a bad, bad plan and has cancelled the special. "In light of the overwhelming tragedy at Mount Everest and out of respect for the families of the fallen, Discovery Channel will not be going forward with Everest Jump Live," the network wrote on its website. "Our thoughts and prayers go out to the whole Sherpa community." Joby Ogwyn was to jump off Everest in a wing suit on May 11. On Friday, while the climbers

The Epic Hypocrisy of Tom Steyer
Power Line, by John Hinderaker    Original Article

Billionaire hedge fund operator and “green” energy magnate Tom Steyer has pledged $100 million in the 2014 election cycle to help Democratic candidates who oppose the Keystone pipeline and who favor “green” energy over fossil fuels. Steyer claims to be a man of principle who has no financial interest in the causes he supports, but acts only for the public good. That is a ridiculous claim: Steyer is the ultimate rent-seeker who depends on government connections to produce subsidies and mandates that make his “green” energy investments profitable. He also is, or was until recently, a major investor in Kinder

What happens when presidents lie? The American public has had plenty of experience with this in recent years. Liar-president could be the new hyphenate occupation like writer-producer or architect-contractor. Almost every president has shaded things a bit, but three modern ones have been unabashed bull artists — Richard Nixon, Bill Clinton and, of course, Barack Obama. Clinton ultimately got a pass for his prevarications. Nixon didn’t. Neither deserved one. But our current liar-president deserves one even less, because his lies have been of substance, affecting policy. Nixon and Clinton just lied in self-defense — normal human cowardice. Obama is something else again. He

Obama shuts down debate

When President Obama trumpeted the 8 million figure representing people who had signed up for ObamaCare, he didn’t just declare it a victory. He declared the debate over — and told Republicans “it’s well time to move on.” Now, we understand the eagerness of politicians to declare debates over. It’s certainly easier than defending ObamaCare’s broken promises, or even providing the breakdowns behind that 8 million top-line number that would let us measure if the program is getting the sign-ups it needs. Increasingly, however, it seems that the “shut up and move on” trope has become the go-to response of liberals on

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

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

In a speech earlier this week, Lisa O. Monaco, President Barack Obama’s assistant for homeland security and counterterrorism, insisted that American parents must be vigilant because their “confrontational” children could be on the verge of becoming terrorists. 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. Interestingly, the Harvard grad failed to mention the religion or the motive of brothers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan

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
