GOP Leaders Wield
Unlikely Weapon Against
Obama: Bob Woodward

National Review Online, by Eliana Johnson

Original Article

Posted By:Dreadnought, 2/8/2013 11:41:10 PM

Republicans Friday afternoon bludgeoned the administration with an unlikely weapon in the political battle over the impending sequestration: the words of Bob Woodward, theWashington Post journalist whose exposure of the Watergate scandal in 1972 brought down the Nixon presidency. As White House press secretary Jay Carney blasted “spin doctors on the Republican side” for spreading the “fanciful concoction” that the White House wanted the sequester, House Republicans deployed a passage from Woodward’s most recent book, The Price of Politics, that tells a different story. According to Woodward

Usually when this sort of fight happens, there´s always one or two repubs like Chuck Hagel more than willing to stab other repubs in the back.

There was a time if a president was caught in one lie,he may as well hang it up. Bubba got away with the Lewenski lie but still made the news cycle all the time.It took months of spinning from the likes of Lanni Davis to weasel out of it.

Obama lies so often about so many things that even if he told the truth about something,nobody would believe him.

On top of being a liar himself,he has a huge network of liars covering his back.

Imagine if Bush simply disappeared while our embassy was under attack. You wouldn´t be able to find a liberal anywhere who wasn´t demanding impeachment.

There´s probably some journalists who would love to question some things in obama world but figure there´s no use because the editors won´t allow it.

There is a large segment of our population that demands lies to salve what little conscience they may have.

~~“It’s important for people to know that the president was ultimately responsible for conceiving of this idea,” Buck tells National Review Online. “The president has tried to pin [the sequester] on Congress, saying that they came up with it and that they must fix it, when in fact Congress thought this was a terrible mechanism to use,” explains. “This is what the White House insisted on.”~~

This NEWS should be on every network, every single time the president lays the blame on the mean Republicans. However, as ususal, the majority of Americans will not be aware of it, thanks to the dem lapdogs in the press.

None of that matters. The media will present the sequestration as a GOP idea and therefore the GOP´s fault.

Bob Woodward helped to bring a gov´t down over a small break in. That´s all it was. Now there´s murder (Libya) - who´s there to call someone to task for it? A very sad state of affairs. As Clint Eastwood said "if D.C. ´doesn´t give a damn´, how can we?" We can but we don´t have much of a voice right now. I have emailed my democratic congressman a few times about Libya and get the usual reply "thanks for writing". It´s time for voter ID cards so people can´t vote numerous times. Get rid of the early voting also if you can´t prove you won´t be here on election day. "Vote early, vote often" as the saying goes.

Immunity from playing fast and loose with the truth - in other words lying, is strictly a One Party phenomenon. Bubba´s finger shaking escapades did not give any leeway to Bush, Palin or Romney. In fact there has been a vigorous efforts to pursue trivial technicalities to play gotcha and the game of ´everyone does it´. Look for this to go into high gear next four years.

Unfortunately, the motto of the US has been changed from "In God We Trust" to "Senator, What Difference Does it Make?" There is a national miasma that has descended on at least half of this country with the coronation of King Barry. With the lack of interest by the media and the incompetence by the Republicans (look at the governors who caved with the Obamacare exchanges) there isn´t much hope.

Carney is a lying doofus; he´s even worse than Fibbs. The problem with the story is that the feebs who vote for Fauxbama and the dims don´t even know who Bob Woodward is. Facts don´t matter anymore. The only question asked is, ´What am I going to be given?´

The saintly Woodward matter of factly recorded the invent that led to sequestration as it occurred. He did not have to go back and research and investigate the event so he does not have as much invested in this story as he did Watergate. He will probably back its authenticity but will not push the story as he did with Watergate. No other reporters carry as much water as the saintly Woodward so if he does not advance it the MSM will cover for Obama like they do everything else and the LOIV will readily accept Obama´s narrative (if they even care--which they don´t).

This is where the Democrats trounce the GOP. They put out soundbites that play on the emotions while the GOP does long, complicated explanations, usually with charts, and loses its audience. Keep The Message Simple, GOP! Please!

Not sure it really matters. When Obama speaks to his "uninformed (unintelligent) voters" he can stand next to a house and say it´s a shoe and they will believe it.

I submit that the GOP has no leaders. None. It is now being loosely managed, not led, by a cluster of functionaries or apparatchiks groping for a direction that will not offend too many people on too many sides.

A leader does not worry about polls, doesn´t . A leader creates a vision based on principles, puts it before the people fearlessly, and inspires them to follow.

Who of our functionaries has come close to doing this?

I remain hopeful, waiting for a real leader to arise.

I had a judge one time tell a witness that ´SHE COULDN´T TELL THE TRUTH IF IT HELPED HER", pretty much describes OBAMA.

Social Security stops trying

Washington Post, by Marc Fisher    Original Article

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

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

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

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

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead. "For all the talk about the movement that elected Mr. Obama, the more notable movement of Obama supporters has been away from politics. It appears that few of the young people who voted

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

Chelsea Clinton says when people ask her these days whether she wants to go into politics, her answer isn’t an automatic “no.” The 34-year-old former first daughter told Fast Company in an interview published Monday, “for so long the answer was just a visceral no. Not because I had made any conscientious, deliberate decision, but since people had been asking for as long as literally I could remember, it was no."

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth. The president of WWU has stated that his explicit goal is to reduce the white population on campus, according to Campus Reform. “I’ve said before and I’ll say it
