As 2012 campaign nears
finish, 2016 lurks

Fox News, by Associated Press

Original Article

Posted By:RUReadyY3K, 11/5/2012 11:32:58 AM

Relieved to see the long, costly 2012 presidential race end? The 2016 campaign is closer than you think. In some subtle ways, the jockeying to succeed Barack Obama or Mitt Romney already has begun. Democrats know they'll need a new standard bearer regardless of whether Obama is re-elected, and there are plenty of possibilities -- from Hillary Rodham Clinton to New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo.

Comments:
With the Sandy debacle playing out in NYC, Cuomo will have difficulty getting traction. Up to now I thought he was doing pretty good (for a Democrat in NY State) but this is going to be a black mark. Cuomo is already looking for scapegoats.

Dictators tend not to release control of power. The term *suckers* will apply to us all.

I don't think 2016 will be significant at all. If Obama gets reelected, the country is dead. If it's Romney, the democrats are going to be impotent for a long, long time.

Have you seen/heard Andrew Cuomo speak? Sounds as though he is straight out of the projects. What an unattractive, common, unimpressive person he is. No class whatsoever.

Little Andrew will have some bad things to deal with.
He is shacking up with a tv cook.
His wife, Kerry Kennedy, left him for the lawn boy, because Andrew could not meet her 'needs.'
When he was Secretary of HUD, he misplaced 15 billion dollars, which were unauditable.
He played a major role in those subprime mortgages, as did his assintant, Kirsten Gillibrand
He is a baby killing catholic.
Finally, the U.S. is inexorably moving in a conservative direction. A ny thugster will not prevail.

Well, the Dems are fools if all they are worrying about is 2016. They are going to continue to lose seats in congress in 2014, because Americans in the middle are waking up to leftist policies that are poisoning this great country.

Maybe the kneepad media will step out of the shadows, and just run their own candidate.

A minority Dan Rather type of unspecified gender with the approval of at least 3 of the west's worst enemies is a likely starting profile.

Every single Dim named here for 2016 is a pathetic retread.

They have no new blood at all. The 60's generation (of whom I am one) is past its sell-by date.

I am not worried. A new generation of tea party inspired, intelligent, fighting young conservatives, is emerging. Paul Ryan is a standard bearer. I look for him to have a young fighting conservative woman as a running mate, too.

President Romney 2012
President Romney 2016
President Ryan 2020
President Ryan 2024

2028 - President Michelle Malkin. :-)

Study: Civil servant system outdated

The federal government is headed for a crisis, a new report warns, and without reforms, a homegrown problem threatens to derail everything from foreign policy, to entitlements, to food safety. The problem is the way the government manages its more than 2 million civil servants, according to a report from the nonprofit Partnership for Public Service and government consulting firm Booz Allen Hamilton.

India outraged by strip-search

The U.S. State Department was scrambling to tamp down Indian outrage over the arrest of a diplomat in New York City who says she was stripped- and cavity-searched over charges that she didn´t pay her housekeeper enough money. "We don´t want this to negatively impact our bilateral relationship (with India), and we´ll keep talking about it with them on the ground and here," said Marie Harf, deputy spokeswoman at the State Department.

Knightstown, Ind. - Knightstown police Chief Danny Baker has used pig roasts and golf tournaments to augment his department´s shrinking budget, but badly in need of $9,000 for a new squad car, he´s reprising his most shocking fundraising approach to date: getting shot by a stun gun. The jocular 63-year-old chief and another Knightstown official were planning to have a detective shoot them with a Taser at a free event Wednesday night in the middle school gym in their small eastern Indiana town.

The New Mexico Supreme Court is cautioning the state´s trial courts that citizens who don´t speak English have the right to serve on juries. The court issued the admonition in a ruling that upholds an Albuquerque man´s convictions for murder and other crimes in the bludgeoning death of his girlfriend and a subsequent armed robbery and stabbing. Michael Samora's appeal argued that his convictions should be reversed because the Bernalillo County court excused a Spanish-speaking prospective juror who had trouble understanding English.

Venezuela´s government said on Wednesday it may not be possible to embalm the remains of late leader Hugo Chavez as planned because the process should have been started earlier. Chavez died last week aged 58 after a two-year battle with cancer. His body has been on display in a glass-topped coffin at a grandiose military academy in the capital Caracas, where millions of people have filed past to pay homage.

Chris Christie, not Rubio,
best bet in 2016

The GOP´s chances of winning the White House in 2016 are linked more closely to the political fortunes of New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie than those of Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida. Rubio is the Tea Party wunderkind who was tapped by Republicans to give the GOP response to President Obama's State of the Union Address. He began his retort with a dusted off reference to his parents' emigration from Cuba to the United States. During his political ascendancy in Florida, Rubio often talked of how his mom and dad fled that Caribbean island after Fidel Castro came to power in 1959.

Fairfax, VA – The group Americans for Limited Government has urged a House subcommittee to defund the West Point Combating Terrorism Center (CTC) after it released a study on terrorism that the organization’s president, William Wilson said is targeted against regular Americans. “Not one more dime of taxpayer money should be wasted on CTC, which is indoctrinating our servicemen and women with brazen propaganda against the American people until this report is denounced and its author terminated from government service,” Wilson wrote in a letter to members of

Obama considering John Kerry

President Obama is considering asking Sen. John F. Kerry (D-Mass.) to serve as his next defense secretary, part of an extensive rearrangement of his national security team that will include a permanent replacement for former CIA director David H. Petraeus. Although Kerry is thought to covet the job of secretary of state, senior administration officials familiar with the transition planning said that nomination will almost certainly go to Susan E. Rice, the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations. John O. Brennan, Obama’s chief counterterrorism adviser, is a leading contender for the CIA job if he wants it,

Obama to Boehner:
Put Down the Gun
New York Magazine, by Jonathan Chait    Original Article
Posted By: RUReadyY3K- 11/11/2012 7:02:57 PM     Post Reply
President Obama´s remarks today about the so-called "fiscal cliff" set the stage for a showdown with Congress likely to last for the next few months. Obama set one line in the sand: revenue. He announced that he would compromise with Republicans, but would not give up his insistence that high-income Americans pay more taxes as part of any long-term deficit solution. Interestingly, Obama´s remarks were not predicated on the assumption that the two sides would strike a deal before January. In fact he assumed they would not, and his message was designed to be repeated through the new year.

Former Florida governor Jeb Bush said Sunday that he will base his decision on whether to run for president in 2016 on whether he thinks he can mount a campaign that would transcend the modern-day mechanics of such a run. Bush, the second-oldest son of former president George H. W. Bush and younger brother of George W. Bush, spoke at an event marking the 25th anniversary of his father´s presidency at the library and museum that bears the patriarch´s name. The event was closed to reporters, but moderated by Fox News anchor Shannon Bream and portions of the event were later

Kathryn Riffenburg decided on a closed casket for her baby´s funeral. She didn´t want her family to see what whooping cough, her son´s first illness, had done to 9-week-old Brady Alcaide. The nearly forgotten disease, which has in recent years afflicted thousands of Americans, left Brady´s tiny body swollen and unrecognizable. So his mother dressed him in a white baptismal suit and hat and tucked him into a tiny white casket. Brady´s burial came just four weeks after his first laugh — inspired by her version of I´m a Little Teapot — and two weeks after his family learned that he had

In Dearborn, Mich., home to over 40,000 Americans of Arab descent, some Muslim parents have complained about flyers handed out at public schools advertising an Easter egg hunt at a local Presbyterian church. The Muslim parents assert that the flyers – emblazoned with the word “Eggstravaganza!” – violate the separation of church and state widely ascribed to the First Amendment’s Establishment Clause, reports the Detroit Free Press. Students at three Dearborn elementary schools received the flyers. A large number of Muslim students attend the schools.

Democrats are facing a senior problem that could get even worse this year. The party has traditionally had trouble with older voters, losing the group aged 65 and over by 21 points in 2010 — when Republicans picked up 63 seats — and by 12 points in the 2012 presidential race. Seniors are the GOP’s most reliable voting bloc in midterm years, turning out in higher numbers than Democratic base voters. A recent Gallup poll showed seniors have become even more Republican over the last two decades; in 2013, 48 percent considered themselves Republican. That spells trouble for Democrats, who are already facing

When friends and family members gathered recently at the White House for a private celebration of Michelle Obama’s 50th birthday, one of the invited partygoers was a former paid FBI Mafia informant. That same man attended February’s state dinner in honor of French President Francois Hollande. He was seated with his girlfriend at a table adjacent to President Barack Obama, who is likely unaware that, according to federal agents, his guest once interacted with members of four of New York City’s five organized crime families. He even secretly taped some of those wiseguys using a briefcase that FBI technicians outfitted

LONDON - Peaches Geldof, the wild-child second daughter of concert organizer Bob Geldof who worked as a model, a television presenter and a fashion writer and filled the pages of British tabloids with her late-night antics, has died at age 25. There was no immediate word on the cause of her death at her home in Wrotham, Kent, southeast England. Her father said in a statement Monday: "Peaches has died. We are beyond pain." "She was the wildest, funniest, cleverest, wittiest and the most bonkers of all of us," he said. "Writing 'was' destroys me afresh. What a beautiful child. How is this possible that we will not see her again? How is that bearable? We loved her and will cherish her forever."

A married freshman Republican congressman who campaigned on his Christian, conservative values apologized Monday after surveillance video surfaced purportedly showing him in a lengthy liplock with a staffer. In the Dec. 23 footage, obtained by a local newspaper, Rep. Vance McAllister, R-La. - who ahead of his election last fall ran multiple campaign ads trumpeting his faith and family - is seen kissing and embracing a woman for about 20 seconds at his Monroe, La., district office. The Ouachita Citizen reports the woman is the congressman´s 33-year-old part-time scheduler, who is also married.

The Democratic National Committee is furious by a conservative website’s ad campaign that depicts Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi clad in a bikini in a provocative pose with her tongue sticking out. Rep.

The image of Pelosi, beneath one of California Gov. Jerry Brown’s face photo-shopped onto a flexing body builder, includes the sub-head: “Because you can’t make this s— up.” “To say the least,
