Rahm Emanuel takes liberal base-
bashing to a whole new level

Salon Magazine, by David Sirota

Original Article

Posted By:Scottyboy, 10/16/2012 10:14:14 AM

Among the least effective ways to help a struggling candidate is to berate that candidate’s base voters. (snip)Now, though, as the election enters its final death throes and the spasms of partisan desperation get ever more intense, Democrats are flinging out a special version of the old berate-the-base tactic. Rather than copping to the president’s betrayals and explaining them away as allegedly necessary compromises, one of the president’s chief surrogates, Rahm Emanuel, is publicly insisting that the president’s most loyal supporters are downright stupid because they believe Obama made specific promises which he supposedly never made.

Comments:
Wow, even one of the -ahem- gentlemen over at the Salon are getting tweeked off at Team 0bama's tactics. 0bama now has no one left to insult.

Remember when Rahm compared Democrats to retarded people, and then had to apologize to retarded people?

Being an ex-pat Chicagoan myself, I can tell you that generally when the liberal base is berated it's because they have failed to vote enough. All good Chicagoans must vote at least twice for the candidate of their master's choice.
NOTE: They don't have a candidate of their OWN because that would require intellectual skills they lack.

No Rahm, Obama purposely told them about Hope and Change, knowing full well that the stupid and vague slogan would mean 360 million different things to 360 million citizens. He wouldn't know a specific if it poked him in the eye.

Listen you dopes. There are so many different organizations working in secret, feeding off one another, working tax discounts, working real estate fixes, working protection/campaign contribution rackets, working government job rewards, working union money/power, working .. working .. working every conceivable con or racket imaginable.

Chicago is not just a Democratic controlled government scandal, it is a cancer that is so embedded that if you tried to remove it, then there would literally be NO Chicago.

Liberal base-bashing is just one more (of a zillion possible) cons in a city so corrupted that nothing (even an election) will ever clean it up.

I have a fairly safe prediction. No matter what happens at the debate tonight, the MSM will immediately hail Obama's tremendous comeback performance and attempt to demonize Romney for being untruthful, vague and/or rude.

After the last debate, the MSM and the rest of the left wing could not stifle their shock, horror and deep disappointment at Obama. It was like a gag reflex. They simply could not hold back their overpowering urge to vomit.

Now they have had time to reflect and have become even more shocked and horrified to see Romney shoot ahead of Obama in all of the polls. The MSM has way too much emotionally and financially invested in Obama to simply cut him loose now. They will do whatever it takes from now until the election to prop Obama back up.

If they do manage to prop Obama up long enough to get him re-elected, then they will start tearing into him like a pack of wild dogs. The honeymoon is definitely over.

Tyrant Obama will force
liberalism on America
Washington Times, by Emily Miller    Original Article
Posted By: Scottyboy- 2/5/2014 11:40:00 PM     Post Reply
Barack Obama was once a constitutional law professor, but now views the founding document as irrelevant. The president is ruling by decree, instead of working with a divided Congress. The Founding Fathers would be appalled by the way the current occupant of the White House has usurped power to get his agenda passed. There is nothing to restrain Mr. Obama, now a lame duck, from forcing his liberalism on America. For example, the White House declared Wednesday that it will not go through Congress to create regional “climate hubs” to deal with the supposed crisis of “climate change.” This comes

AS celebrity gossip goes, it takes some beating: actress and model Elizabeth Hurley has a year-long affair with Bill Clinton while he was US president. Throw in the suggestion that they had a liaison in the White House while Hillary Clinton was next door, and that Mr Clinton ended it when he realised he was falling in love, and you have a story that rivals Marilyn Monroe´s alleged fling with John F Kennedy. But when something sounds too good to be true, it usually is, as Ms Hurley pointed out yesterday when she was forced to deny the "ludicrously silly" report

WASHINGTON -- At least 50 Americans have joined the mix of extremist groups that are fighting to overthrow Syrian President Bashar Assad, and some could try to mount terrorist attacks at home, U.S. intelligence officials said Tuesday. (snip)A U.S. intelligence official told The Times that the total includes at least 50 Americans, a more concrete estimate than authorities have given previously. He declined to be identified because he was not authorized to discuss the figure publicly.

President Obama´s chemical weapons deal with Syria has “improved” Syrian President Bashar Assad´s position, Secretary of State John Kerry acknowledged Wednesday. Kerry´s admission comes after Director of National Intelligence James Clapper told Congress last week the deal “adds legitimacy” to the Assad regime, even as it has the potential to eliminate a threat to the U.S. The deal is coming under fire, after Syria blew crucial deadlines in recent weeks, turning over only about 5 percent of its arsenal. The Assad regime has until June 30 to eliminate the program. “It´s fair to say that Assad has improved his position a little

The U.S. postal service inspector general put out a report last week suggesting an intriguing way to shore up the ailing institution’s finances: Let the mailman double as a bank teller. The plan? The post office would offer services designed to appeal to America’s unbanked and under-banked — the more than 50 million adults who either have no checking or savings account, or use high-cost, predatory services like payday loans to supplement traditional banking needs.(snip)What gives? Is it just that bank archenemy Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), whose relationship with financial services most resembles Batman’s with the Joker, said she liked the

Poll: Clinton could be vulnerable
to more conservative Dem
United Press International, by Staff    Original Article
Posted By: Scottyboy- 2/5/2014 4:13:21 PM     Post Reply
WASHINGTON -- A poll indicated Wednesday that if former U.S. Sen. Hillary Clinton runs for president her biggest challenge could come from a more conservative Democrat. While the poll, conducted by CNN, finds Clinton an overwhelming favorite with 70 percent of Democrats and Democratic-leaning independent voters saying they would support her if she mounts a second presidential bid in 2016, the split on the remaining Democrats is surprising. Conventional wisdom has held Clinton´s biggest liability in a potential primary is from the liberal wing of the party, where President Barack Obama found support to defeat her in their historic 2008 primary race.

The man who found the body of Philip Seymour Hoffman has claimed he was the Oscar-winning actor´s gay lover. David Bar Katz also told The National Enquirer that he saw Hoffman "freebasing cocaine" the night before he died. The actor died of a suspected heroin overdose and was reportedly found with a needle in his arm. "We were homosexual lovers. We had a relationship," said Katz, a playwright. "We were planning to go the Super Bowl together and have a really nice day. This is so terrible." Katz also said that he that he never thought the actor's addiction had "reached that level"

The vice president’s feisty niece took a conditional dismissal deal Wednesday in her misdemeanor Manhattan cop attack case. Caroline Biden wasn’t in Manhattan Criminal Court as her case was resolved because she’s undergoing inpatient treatment for “her issues” including anger management, her lawyer James Liguori said. If Biden, 26, stays out of trouble for six months, her case will be dismissed and sealed. The spitfire relative of Vice President Joe Biden was arrested for assaulting a cop and refusing arrest, but none of the officers were injured in the temper tantrum, Assistant District Attorney Alyssa Gunther said.

´Message of contempt´: Philadelphia
district attorney rips Obama

The Philadelphia district attorney is speaking out against President Obama’s nominee for a top Justice Department post, saying his link to the case of a convicted cop killer “sends a message of contempt” to officers who risk their lives every day. District Attorney Seth Williams, a Democrat, said Debo Adegbile is “ill-suited for the pivotal role” of leading the Civil Rights Division. He voiced his concerns in a Feb. 4 letter to Judiciary Committee Chairman Patrick Leahy, D-Vt., and Ranking Member Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa. The committee is expected to vote on Adegbile’s nomination on Thursday. “Mr. Adegbile has impressive credentials,” Williams wrote. “His

"It is important for me to be with my mother and my brother at this difficult time," King said, according to the news service.

It is one of the most common - albeit, ineptly used - elements of the English language. Now, an American academic has suggested that the comma could be abolished as a punctuation mark. Professor John McWhorter claims removing commas from most modern U.S. texts would cause ´little loss of clarity´ - meaning they may now be in a state of obsolescence. He adds that internet users are becoming increasingly carefree in their use of the punctuation mark - with some professional writers following suit, according to The Times. ´[You] could take them out of a great deal of modern American

LONDON - Stronger winds which have cooled the surface of the Pacific Ocean could explain what is likely to be a temporary slowdown in the pace of global warming this century, researchers said.

SAN ANTONIO — We recommend incumbent John Cornyn for the GOP´s U.S. Senate nomination, based on unmatched experience and decades of service to Texas. The theme among a bevy of challengers seems to be that Cornyn is a CINO, a conservative in name only. This is not just counter-intuitive but counter-factual. Various ratings — liberal and conservative — have agreed on one thing, Cornyn´s conservative credentials are genuine. Not conservative? Cornyn is No. 2 in Senate leadership and diverged only slightly from the conservative playbook in a year in which he offered a measure that would further beef up security at the

Democrats from President Obama on down have been touting Obamacare´s sign-up numbers. Even after the system´s disastrous rollout, they like to point out, roughly three million people have signed up for private insurance, while 6.3 million have signed up for Medicaid. "Already, because of the Affordable Care Act, more than nine million Americans have signed up for private health insurance or Medicaid coverage," Obama said in the State of the Union speech. "Nine million." (Snip) But there is strong new evidence to suggest the administration's claims are grossly exaggerated and deeply misleading. Obamacare is not doing nearly as well as the

Guess bloviating Bill never takes the time to tune in to radio talk show hosts where John Boehner has been persona non grata for some time.

Conservative radio host Laura Ingraham battled the rest of the Fox News Sunday panel over immigration, arguing that immigration reform and current enforcement of immigration laws were weakening the American workforce, even as her fellow panelists countered that reform would bolster the economy. “I think what we’re seeing here is a split inside the Republican Party between two staunch conservatives,” host Chris Wallace said, going on to ply Ingraham with a Wall Street Journal editorial that called flinching on reform “de facto amnesty.” “As far as I can tell, the Wall Street Journal is on the side of Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer,

Count Polly Lower among those who quit their jobs because of the health-care law. It happened in September, when her boss abruptly changed her job description. She went from doing payroll, which she liked, to working on her boss’s schedule, which she loathed. At another time, she might have had to grit her teeth and accept the new position because she needed the health benefits. But with the health-care law soon to take effect, she simply resigned — and hasn’t looked back. “It was wonderful. It was very freeing,” said Lower, 56, of Bourbon, Ind., who is now babysitting her

Even nearly three years out, it’s become “common knowledge” which has been repeated by more folks than you can count. (Including yours truly) Hillary Clinton is going to run for President. How could she not? And assuming she does, she will most certainly win the Democrat nomination. On top of that, she will present a daunting challenge to the GOP candidate, no matter whether the nominee is “establishment” or “grassroots” or from the Planet Ork. But I’m seeing an increasing amount of speculation that perhaps the conventional wisdom is neither. Does she want to spend two more years on the

The emergence of Twitter as a social media goliath has unleashed gossip and speculation as a media force. The long term consequences are unknowable, but in the meantime, with a far left president with a dicey past, it is producing some highly amusing results. Last night, President Obama explained to Bob Costas of NBC Sports why he wasn´t attending the Sochi Olympics, but the substance of what he had to say was lost in the controversy that erupted on Twitter over whether or not he was stoned. Yahoo writer Mike Oz took the high road, as would nearly any journalist, and described the president as looking "sleepy."
