Prez flunks history
Trentonian [NJ], by Editorial

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 10/29/2012 10:11:13 AM

In a recent newspaper interview (Des Moines Register), President Obama declared that Mitch McConnell had “imposed an ironclad filibuster from the first day I was in office.” And, added the president authoritatively, “that’s not speculation.” No it’s not speculation. It’s hooey. An F in history for you, Mr. Prez. McConnell was and is the minority leader of the Senate. Meaning his party does not control the place now and did not control the place when Obama took office. It was OBAMA’s party, Democrats, who then enjoyed an ironclad majority and power to do whatever they wished in the Senate.

The POT-US is once again making up his own facts to fit his narrative.

It's simply amazing how many useful idiots agree with everything he says. Time to rid the entire country of all of them!

The Democrats have had majority control of the Senate since January 2007.

The Democrats had a 60% filibuster-proof super majority in the Senate from July 7, 2009, when Al Franken replaced Norm Coleman, until February 4, 2010, when Scott Brown replaced Ted Kennedy. During that time, the Democrats had the power to push through anything they wanted and the Republicans could do nothing to stop it.

A fresh start for Hillary Clinton
and liberals?
Associated Press, by Ken Thomas    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 2/9/2014 2:02:41 PM     Post Reply
WASHINGTON— As Hillary Rodham Clinton mulls a second presidential bid, liberals are closely watching whether the onetime supporter of the Iraq war moves to the left or straddles the center. Democrats say economic issues such as raising the minimum wage and protecting Social Security have become paramount for anyone aiming to lead the party after years of tough economic times. During the 2008 primary campaign against Barack Obama, Clinton was hurt by her stand on the Iraq war while she was a senator. But she burnished her image among party loyalists during four years at the State Department in the

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – When Tennessee was competing for a half-billion dollars in federal education money, teachers agreed to allow the state to ramp up its use of student test scores for evaluating educators. But since winning the $500 million Race to the Top competition in 2010, teachers say the state has gone too far in using student test scores to assess their performance. Teachers say that isn´t what they signed up for when the state was competing for the prestigious and lucrative Race to the Top grant. They are now calling for legislation to place a moratorium on the use

Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MN) did his part Sunday morning to demonstrate why Obamacare will continue to be the most important issue for Republicans in the 2014 midterm elections. In response to the Congressional Budget Office´s latest projection last week that 2.5 million Americans will leave the labor force in response to Obamacare, Ellison said: "This is a good thing....We might want to look at our work-life balance." On the scale of stupid statements said by politicians, Ellison´s ranks somewhere around Todd Akin´s infamous "legitimate rape."

At 50, Brian Boitano hardly seems to have lost his edge. Twenty-six years after winning the figure skating gold medal at the 1988 Olympics, he has a new role at the 2014 Winter Games, as one of three openly gay athletes named to a nine-person official delegation representing the U.S. at the Sochi Olympics. "I didn´t realize that President Obama was sending such an immense message through this delegation," he said. "And you, at that moment, were not openly gay?" said Smith. "No, I was not, at that moment, openly gay. And I had no plans to," Boitano said. "Not

At an after-hours hacking event at Microsoft’s headquarters in Redmond, Wash., Aaron Ginn approached an engineer whose face was buried in a laptop. Like more than a few techies, Mr. Ginn could pass for a skateboarder or a member of a boy band: As he circulated, he wore a red Reebok cap, its bill tilted high over his short dark hair, a silver and black cross around his neck and a green T-shirt printed with “Lincoln Labs.” That’s the name of the talent-scouting group he founded last year with two friends. But unlike others in this game, Mr. Ginn was

Pollster John Zogby reports in our weekly White House report card that President Obama´s numbers are mixed, both in approval rating and right-direction, wrong-direction. "I am a numbers guy and the numbers are mixed. Troubling for Obama is that so few Americans feel the U.S. is headed in the right direction (29 percent average) and that the stock market is falling. This could be the inevitable correction and the obvious impact of the Fed´s tapering. “He is also still upside down in public opinion toward Obamacare, though the gap between supporters and opponents is not really widening. “On the flip

SOCHI, Russia - Jamie Anderson, a yoga-loving Californian with a passion for living in the moment and drinking amino acid-stuffed green shakes, captured the gold medal in the new Olympic event of snowboard slopestyle Sunday afternoon, nailing her second run for a score of 95.25 at Rosa Khutor Extreme Park. The triumph for the 23-year-old Anderson gives the U.S. its second gold and a sweep of slopestyle, in which boarders ride rails and ramps and make electrifying jumps – skateboarding on snow. On Saturday, Sage Kotsenburg took the men’s slopestyle gold.Standing in second place after the first run, Anderson rode

NBC didn’t air the Russian Ministry of Internal Affairs choir covering“Get Lucky” or T.a.T.u’s defiantly gay-friendly performance. But Friday night’s telecast of the opening ceremony for the 22nd Winter Olympics in Sochi was an enthralling, if occasionally odd, swirl of East and West, old and new, strange and familiar. It was also a showcase for the increasingly aggrieved political subtext that threatens to overshadow the Games. All early coverage has been couched repeatedly in pejorative — for Russia’s anti-gay laws, the expense of the facilities and shoddiness of accommodations; for the arrogance of the president and the joylessness of the

President Obama said Saturday that he’s doing everything he can to reduce income inequality in America. In his weekly address, Mr. Obama said too many Americans haven’t seen increases in their wages, while the wealthy “are doing better than ever.” “We’ve got to reverse those trends,” Mr. Obama said. “We’ve got to build an economy that works for everyone, not just a fortunate few.” Toward his goal, the president noted that he’s taken steps through executive action in recent weeks to boost job training, to guarantee every child has access to quality education, and to boost income and retirement savings.

One of Miami Beach´s most notorious pieces of real estate is back on the block: the asking price is almost $8.5 million. The sprawling, waterfront compound is where notorious Chicago gangster Al Capone died after being released from Alcatraz and is said to have plotted the St. Valentine´s day massacre in 1929. The 10,000-square-foot baby blue mansion sits on exclusive Palm Island, sandwiched in Biscayne Bay between downtown Miami´s skyscrapers and South Beach´s hotel district. The current owner, a Florida company managed by New York accountant Anthony Panebianco, purchased the home barely six months ago for $7.4 million, according to

President Barack Obama went one-on-one with NBC Sports anchor Bob Costas in an interview before the Winter Olympics opening ceremony aired for the primetime audience in the U.S. Obama — a tired-looking Obama, we should add — talked to Costas from the White House, not from Sochi (the interview was recorded Thursday). Costas addressed that in his first question to the president. Why didn´t he attend the Olympics? And why didn´t the vice president, the first lady or any other high-ranking members of the president´s cabinet? Obama´s response: Unfortunately, I haven´t had a chance to go to the Olympics since

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

TWENTY-ONE years ago, when I first heard Mia Farrow had accused me of child molestation, I found the idea so ludicrous I didn’t give it a second thought. We were involved in a terribly acrimonious breakup, with great enmity between us and a custody battle slowly gathering energy. The self-serving transparency of her malevolence seemed so obvious I didn’t even hire a lawyer to defend myself. It was my show business attorney who told me she was bringing the accusation to the police and I would need a criminal lawyer. I naïvely thought the accusation would be dismissed out of hand because of course, I hadn’t molested Dylan

Appearing on MSNBC, former Secretary of State Colin Powell savaged the Republican Party of which he says he is still a member for catering to “elements” that are overtly hostile to people of other races or nationalities. Powell told MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell that there are groups within the GOP who “demonize people who don’t look like the way they’d like them to look.” He added that, for this reason, he believes the GOP needs him more than the Democratic Party needs him. Speaking with Mitchell about the need for immigration reform, Powell said that reforming the system was critical. “We are

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

Geraldo Rivera took on Bill O’Reilly Friday night over whether O’Reilly was disrespectful to President Obama in their big Super Bowl interview. Rivera gave O’Reilly some benefit of the doubt, but other than that thought O’Reilly was a bit too confrontational and didn’t give Obama the kind of respect a president normally deserves. Rivera argued it was less like an interview and more like a meeting of the minds with the “President of Most of the White Guys of America” (O’Reilly) against the president of the rest of the country, and told O’Reilly that it was out of line for him

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

The former Russian figure skater that lit the Olympic flame during the Sochi opening ceremony has deleted a racist photo of President and Mrs Obama that she had previously posted. Irina Rodnina is a triple Olympic champion figure skater and is close with Russian President Vladimir Putin so it came as little surprise that she was chosen to be one of the two athletes to have the key role in the opening ceremony. A scouring of her Twitter account by The Guardian found that she had posted a photo of Mr and Mrs Obama looking at someone who was holding
