The refrain started many weeks, even months, before the election, but its frequency and intensity has increased nearly exponentially since Nov. 6. "I don´t know if we can survive another four years of this," people say. Or, "do you think we can survive four more years of this?" Even Bill Kristol, not prone to defeatism, speculated on what might happen "even if America can survive the next four years of Obama." [Emphasis added.] The words aren´t coming from alarmists. They come in face-to-face conversations, or in emails, or on the phone. They come from Washington, from New York, from New Jersey,
This is really powerful. What´s more, he could have filled another column with equally serious Obama assaults on the Constitution. Above all, it seems to me, Obama´s success is an indictment of the education system. Nobody with even the slightest understanding of history could have voted for this monster.
Like all big spenders, Obama is going to increase the misery to a level that this nation hasn´t seen since the great depression. The supply of money is running out before the end of the first term, and raising taxes on 2% of the people isn´t going to provide the money needed for the spending. CA and IL are demonstrating what the next step is, higher taxes for everyone.
When I saw Obama with his crew of union leaders and leftist political groups at the photo op in the White House yesterday I became physically ill. This country is being sold down the river.

Recently watched a documentary on Netflix on the real story of "Operation Valkyrie". The woman in the documentary actually knew some of these German nationals who tired to kill Hitler.
The true story swings wildly from full throated completely unrealistic emotional optimism in nearly an entire nation, to abject horror at what they had done. The parallels to the U.S. and are current situation are quite scary.
Hopefully we can find a peaceful solution to our current crisis, but I can´t see it right now.
WHERE are the Republican Congress people in holding Obamanazi accountable? They are our representatives and should be in Obama´s face and in front of every camera they can find on Capitol Hill, screaming about all his abuses of power but they´ve been virtually SILENT, like gawkers at a deadly accident! They work for US! Where is John Boehner?? Crying in the corner, sucking his thumb, instead of LEADING! Obamanazi continues unimpeded while the Republicans can´t find enough guts to de-fund and then they keep up their pansy-a-- attempt to "get along and find common ground." Note to John Boehner: Grow a pair! The House is all that stands between us and the demise of our America. It may even be too late now, but at least put up the semblance of a fight!
There´s only one thing that´s keeping this country off the cliff right now and that is single people don´t have a way to get survivable money from the government.They either have to work or find another person to sponge off of.Certainly people have taken full advantage of disability the last couple years and even that should be investigated.
A lot of new disability claimants are actually kids who have learning disabilities or whatever,mainly due to crazy parent(s) IMO.
How about he guy who´s getting disability because he thinks he´s still a baby? Where´s my diaper and application?
No doubt about it. He hates this country and is jealous because of his own poor background. He has been voted in by the same kind of persons. Some people can make it on their,own. Obama has had lots of help from very dishonest and corrupt people. This election was stolen, either by people who had no right to vote or ones who voted multiple times. The demise of this country is on their heads.
What the heck is going on in this administration? Pres O is golfing, making beer, playing basketball, meeting up with celebs and in his spare time checking out his Intel info on an Ipad. Hillary is running to the farthest corner of the earth with a entourage of 150 for a wine tasting in Australia and Panetta is right behind her on his way over there too. Something about the Australian defense budget. What about our own budgets. Then we have the FBI scanning through a ton of emails from our 4 star generals, who are suppose to be protecting us from radical Islam and others, but they are too busy with two beautiful but wacky ladies. Then we have two Congressmen passing along info to the FBI about these dames but still we don´t have a budget in how many years from Congress. And then there is Attorney General Eric Holder. Need I say more. Now don´t you Democrats feel foolish for voting for this bunch of nuts. They almost make Biden look normal.
America cannot be saved via the ballot box. Forget it. Even absent the irrevocably corrupt, fraudulent system that we saw in action last week, the entitlement parasites now control the process. It´s either Plan B, or forget it. And Plan B will be very unpleasant. On the bright side, it´s been done before. Successfully.
There will be increasing protests and a growing resistance movement. Very possible Obama was re-elected through Democrat voter fraud. Democrats will be ripped a new one in the November 2014 elections. Perhaps Washington Democrats would be wise to begin to refute Obama´s socialist anti-America agenda.
Boehner should speak to O privately and let him know that he has already committed impeachable offences and that if he tries to go around congress with exec directives that charges will be brought against him. The Senate will protect him from being removed but does O want the history books to report that on his record? If O does continue to bypass congress, then impeachment charges should be brought against him on only one or two charges, when the Senate votes not to convict, then new impeachment charges should be brought up on other gounds. This process could be repeated several times tying up the admin´s power to govern. On the side, the House could sue the admin wherever and whenever it can. The people wanted divided govt, let´s give it to them in spades -- no pun intended.
One little-noticed post-election result: the "progressive" Democrats were all ecstatic that Obama won, but not a single one of them expressed an iota of hope that "now, things will get better!" No, they know they voted for decline, and revenge, and that their vote was meant to hurt, not help. Doom? If they get their wish, yes...
The day this monster and his cohorts is/are brought to task for his/their behavior is the day I (short, slow and 72 years old) get an NBA contract.
I agree with the possibility that someone in that septic tank, which is congress, will effectively threaten to expose the whole mess. But I honestly don´t think urkel is able to change, and it should have been his downfall a week ago.
Obama may be criminally irresponsible, but he didn’t make it to where to he is (twice) by accident or without a purpose. His goal? Creating the U.S.S.A: the Union of Socialist States of America, with himself as Dictator. And he did all that with a detailed strategy, including:
Creating an oratory of lies, using his race and faux-amiable demeanor to appeal to the most uneducated segment of society who rely on government handouts—Free Stuff--to function.
Appealing to progressives who hate and fear Republicans more than they value the future of their own country and who don´t know--or care--that Obama’s campaign slogan "Forward" is a traditional Marxist term.
Buying union votes with the $447 billion American jobs act that adds a half-trillion dollars in new debt for American taxpayers while reducing our Gross Domestic Product output and pushing our unemployment rate even higher.
Concealing the terrorist murder of four Americans at our diplomatic mission in Benghazi, Libya—and leveraging the Petraeus Affair--as a political expedience.
Stealing the election with traitorous levels of corruption that may never be fully known.
And we knew he was capable of doing this--had been trained to do this--months before the 2004 election. Dem voters: hang your heads.
Pretty much. It was questionable even if Romney were elected, as to whether or not it was too late to turn the corner and avoid economic collapse. Now IMO it is just a matter of time. Inertia will keep us moving forward for a few years, but eventually the collapse will come.
It is like watching rising flood waters. You see them rising and keep thinking that any time now they will start to recede. Then the next thing you know you are sitting on the roof of your house waiting to be rescued. Only in this case, no one is coming.
I agree it´s a great read. I also agree that the last part is hopelessly optimistic. If people expect the 2014 elections to begin to right the ship, they are afflicted with the dread disease Polyannaism. There will of course be massive dhim vote fraud again, as with our just completed election. The only thing they could improve (or perfect!) is the impossibility of detection; which of course, only matters if O´s opposition have the guts to contest it. Cf. present condition of cowed timidity.
If you had been told that you were afflicted with a malignant tumor, but that it could be completely removed by a simple and reliable procedure, you would likely undergo it. The nation still suffers from a deadky malignancy in the form of Obama, because it chose to ignore the best advice. He is truly the Lingering Malignancy. If the Benghazi matter shows his malfeasant behavior the House could impeach the miscreant. The Senate, in perpetual malpractice, would refuse to convict. Thanks so much, Obama voters!
"Democracy is the theory that the common people know what they want, and they deserve to get it good and hard." HL Mencken
" Is there the slightest thing in that background to suggest that he loves the same America most Americans love? "
Not a single thing , not one . And the majority of voting Americans didn´t care. One thing we are doing is boycotting all nightly news and Sunday shows. Except FOX. I refuse to watch anything connected to NBC , including the Weather Channel . We are going to spend our discretionary money , as much as possible, in red states. My personal goal is to never hear or see the national abomination for the next four years.
The last paragraph was pure afterthought, and Hillyer doesn´t believe it any more than we realists. As I see it, there were three directions the country could have gone on election day. Romney wins, American values and normal activities get a jump start. We all prosper.
Obama and Axelrod steal the election, America decends quickly into Greek status, but with a large dose of racial payback against whites kept stirred by Obama and Holder.
Obama and Axelrod steal the election, but Benghazi gets him impeached. Sadly, the Senate was lost so that wouldn´t get him removed.
Bloodshed. Red voters against blue. Widespread and ugly.
Give it a rest, No. 7. The House Republicans cannot hold him "accountable". Stop blaming the House, which is as much a victim and powerless as the rest of us. Why don´t you put the blame where it belongs?
The only way we can pay the huge debt Obama is creating is through inflation. This will make your 401K and my savings worth almost nothing.
I am not so hopeful as the author of this article that we will ever recover. Once, I would have thought that a country which is bankrupt, where the autocrats live high and the people are starving, would be a country where people got smart and revolted but Zimbawee and its dictator still go on.
Yes he does when he has a complicit and spineless opposition party unwilling or unable to challenge him.
Remember the constant 24/7 vitriol thrown at George W Bush only a few short years ago? The Dems had no hesitation in attacking everything and anything about George W Bush; his policies, family, etc. They never let up. Never respected the Office of President.
But now we have a half black man as President and can´t say a word in disagreement. We shall overcome - indeed.
Last I checked God was still in the miracle business. Pray for one good and descent man or woman from the military with the courage to tell the less than courageous congress the truth. Impeachment did´t even slow Billary down but it did make his administration much less effective.
This is definitely a must read but as others have said way too optimistic at the end. But, how else could the writer have ended the article? It is the only position he and we can take.
I feel whipped after this election and have no energy for the fight that must come, but I know down deep, we must fight for this country with everything we have.We cannot give up. This, I think will be a fight as difficult as what our Fore Fathers faced. And we must have the fortitude to see it through.
IMHO: Zippy was found by his staff to be out to lunch on important matters involving the planned serial destruction on America. So the others took over while he campaigned, took vacations and played golf.
But yes, in theory and practice, Zippy is dooming America.
Obama doesn´t doom America. That we have so many people who happily vote for him dooms America.
An amnesty would add 10-11 million more of these natural Obama voters. Those additional Democrats would probably tip the House back to Pelosi-ville. Yet an amnesty is what some of our GOP elites advocate. So you might say that ´´We have met the enemy and he is us´´ (Pogo)
This was a good summary of dangers Obama causes but as long as many other conservatives blame the tea party for dragging down Romney there is no hope. Romney was playing defense not offence. That is why he lost and why the postmortem now blames the tea party. I don´t rule out vote fraud and the cumulative effect of representation without taxation. The main problem for the GOP is timid leaders. The first cause for hope would be replacing the cry baby as speaker.
As I have posted here many times in the past, the only way to return this nation back to that that it once was is to have another revolution and get rid of the cancer that currently resides in it. I´m 67yrs old and am ready and willing to take up arms and throw off the tyranny that we now see in D.C. And I know that in order to return to yesteryear will take an enormous re-education program, from K thru 12 and beyond.
I received this in an e-mail from my sister-in-law. It´s so true. I just hope the LCom staff will allow it to be posted.
Subject: Fwd: From a Prague newspaper....
Some people have the vocabulary to sum up things in a way that you can quickly understand them. This quote came from the Czech Republic . Someone over there has it figured out. It was translated into English from an article in the Prague newspaper, Prager Zeitungon.
The danger to America is not Barack Obama, but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the Presidency. It will be far easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing to have such a man for their president. The problem is much deeper and far more serious than Mr. Obama, who is a mere symptom of what ails America . Blaming the prince of fools should not blind anyone to the vast confederacy of fools that made him their prince. The Republic can survive a Barack Obama, who is, after all, merely a fool. It is less likely to survive a multitude of fools, such as those who made him their President.
I hate to be a pessimist or negative, but if the conservatives don´t take the "bull by the horns" and use every available remedy to "high crimes and misdemeanors" perpetrated by the pResident and his administration,then, yes, America is doomed.
Thankfully, there is this thing called politics. Obama might not be forced out of office, but the drip, drip, drip will hamper him. While the Dems probably won´t go along with the Pubbies to start with, the closer we get to 2014, the sooner they may think about their own careers and the legacy Obama will give them as a party.
The sooner progressives and the media bring America to its knees, the sooner the people who know better can put the nation back on its feet. So, we step back and let Obama and his media cohorts have their way.
Republicans: Do not compromise; let them struggle with their socialism--which has never worked anywhere it has been tried.
America is made up of those who will not accept tyranny, but in this case, going over the fiscal cliff is acceptable if it destroys Obama. And yes, the nation’s economy will collapse, along with our already-damaged culture, but that may provide the impetus needed to Take Back America; perhaps as it was done once before: by force.
What amazes me is that the Republicans never see the big picture. Did they not consider the impact of allowing millions if illegals into this country, give them all the freebies they want and think they would not vote for Democrats? I despise the Marxists in the Democrat party, and as much as I hate it I have to give them credit for putting their diabolical schemes into action and achieving exactly the results they wanted. This has been going on for years and years so we are now in stuck in this national nightmare. Sadly, I thought the American electorate woke up this time. I was wrong. Not enough of us did. We sure have a huge hill to climb, especially when the Democrats are masters of voter fraud, corruption and criminal behavior and continue to do so without any punishment.
Our ´one party, two wings´ system of political selection leads to our doom. We´ve a single party, composed mainly of lawyers with yachts and ranches and privielge, who care not for our founding documents. They have been schooled for yrs in the detriment they see American enterprise to be. Simply put, the ´progessive party ´ in charge of our politics is composed of one wing which likes taxing us to our knees to pay for more yachts and privilege, and one wing which likes war and selling the things that make such . Both vote to spend our sons and daughters like spare change in endless wars of no consequence. The tree of liberty is thirsty these days and compromise is no longer a seeming option. That´s what started us to the late Civil War was an inability to compromise. We´ve been told for yrs these things were approaching and we continued to vote for these suit wearing liars. We deserve our doom, or our success. The choice is ours to make.....and has been.
The Republicans badly need to grow a pair. Instead, I fear they will only suck up to Obama and his commie constituency in hopes that they will gain acceptance and be liked. Instead, they sell our country down the river.
In answer to the headline...NO, America Dooms Obama. The GOP needs to let this become Obama´s Watergate...don´t let up and keep him on the defensive. Forget about playing nice guy. Look where that strategy has taken us. He stole his reelection with lies tothe American people and he will now get his just due.
Every thing is about to change.There is about to be war in the middle east. Nothing 0 can do nothing we can do. budgets,cost control will go out the window.. Out of our control because the bad men see their chance.. august, 1939..
A fairly complete "Obama wallop" of an article, listing so many of his, seemingly unending, crimes and Treason.
And regards to HIS ascention to HIS 2nd term, I keep hearing Leftists say, "YOU LOST! Over half of the country VOTED for him" -----
That´s where some FALL for the LIES of the Left. It wasn´t 51% of THE COUNTRY that voted for Obama. It was 51% of the votes allegedly cast and that were "counted" for Obama. He STOLE the election - PERIOD.
I hae forgotten now whether it was 60 or 90 Philadelphia precincts did not have a single vote for a republican. Not one. I do not believe that is possible. That is a lot of votes without a single vote for a republican. IMHO, the fix or is it fixing was in play. This is why BHO is on the road over these next four years to trash more of the constitution, where all people and I mean all other than the Political Caste, will be dependent on the "government" dole for ones existance. We are just 28 years behind the 1984 coming true,,,unless "all the good men and women do do something to prevent it. I pledge my honor, my small fortune and honor to prevent it. I am an American.
An excellent article which i have copied and will save, along with many of the superb comments (as usual from my fellow Ldotters).
But be sure to read #s 48 and 51.
From #51, the last line, "The Republic can survive a B.O., who is, after all, merely a fool. It is less likely to survive a multitude of fools, such as those who made him their President." [one little amendment: BO is not a fool. He is malicious and nasty]
A simple thing we can do is to make sure we support, morally and in any other way possible, those Republicans who are fighting the good fight.
Right now, McCain and Lindsey Graham (along with my Senator Kelly Ayotte), putting aside past grievances, are out in front on the Benghazi travesty. Praise where praise is due.
The exhortation during the blitz: "Keep calm, and carry on"

Andrew Breitbart and the heros of Benghazi are the first heros in the Second American Revolution. I whole heartedly agree with those who propose immediate impeachment for a crime of two of Obama, then a second charge of crimes with impeachmetn, with the Benghazi terror attack and the middle east gun running being the final blow. I believe that there are enough Democrats in the Senate who would vote in favor of impeachment. THEY know that Obama and his cohorts stole the election. Let those Dems who won "honestly" step forward and vote for impeachment.
Obama will be judged, as other Marxist tyrants have been judged.
Pop quiz. With whom is the U.S. presently at war? At any other time in our nation’s history most Americans could have readily answered that question. Great Britain. Mexico. Spain. Germany. North Korea. North Vietnam. Iraq. Even college students who couldn’t name the vice president or their state’s governor would know who their non-college-material buddies were being sent overseas to kill or be killed by. These days the world is a bit more complicated. There are the easy answers: the Taliban. Al Qaeda. Then the waters get a bit murky. One might justifiably ask if America is at war with Syria,
Sandra Fluke keeps sending me e-mails. Okay, these e-mails don’t actually contain the type of Weiner-esque Democratic electronic solicitations that are suitable for disclosure only on “The Dirty.” But her messages could be considered provocative. In her latest e-mail, she said she wants me to meet her for a “chat” in San Francisco. Actually, her e-mails are all about money. With a pretentiousness so blatant it’s entertaining, Fluke is trying to convince me to give money to Democratic candidates. Political fundraising is a permanent exercise and, obviously, lists are not always properly culled.
Life in Maine, where Stephen King has spent most of his adult years, requires long drives down country roads, time that King, whose mind is restless, likes to fill by listening to books on tape. In the ’80s, however, he sometimes could not find the books he wanted on tape — or maybe he just did not bother. He had three children: Naomi, Joe and Owen. They could read, couldn’t they? All King had to do was press record. Which is how his school-age children came to furnish their father, over the years, with a small library’s worth of books
John Kerry says he can get an Israeli-Palestinian peace agreement within nine months that would lead to an independent Palestinian state. That’s ambitious to be sure, but Kerry’s optimism raises a key question: With Syria torn by civil war, Egypt in the midst of a meltdown that may lead to another Arab civil war, and the Iranian nuclear program still the region’s major strategic threat, why is the secretary of state pushing the Israeli-Palestinian peace process? Perhaps with everyone else in the region tied down fighting for vital interests or mere survival, John Kerry imagines he has a unique opportunity
Texas has done a lot of good for this country: the King Ranch and Texas-style chili. Dr. Pepper and the Dallas Cowboy cheerleaders. Rick Perry and Ted Cruz. Patrick Swayze. Texas also gave America Sheila Jackson Lee. So let’s call it even. Since 1995, Jackson Lee (D.) has represented Texas’s 18th congressional district, which comprises much of inner-city Houston. Now at least one group on Capitol Hill is eyeing her for higher office: The Congressional Black Caucus is recommending that Jackson Lee replace Janet Napolitano as secretary of the Department of Homeland Security.
Several Republicans have become concerned recently about the possibility of intensified intra-party fighting over the effort to defund Obamacare. The topic came up Wednesday when GOP Sen. Ted Cruz, a leader in the defunding effort, appeared on Laura Ingraham’s radio program. At about 6:30 in the interview, Ingraham asked Cruz about the phrase “surrender caucus” that some have used to describe the Republicans who oppose the defunding effort. Cruz told Ingraham that he has never used the phrase himself to describe his opponents in the defunding debate. Cruz explained that his chief of staff, Chip Roy, did use the phrase,
To compete with those indelible images of Anthony Weiner’s erect penis, the New York City mayoral campaign now has new mental picture: the slutbag. That’s what Weiner spokeswoman Barbara Morgan called an intern with the campaign who had quit and written a tell-all for the New York Daily News. Olivia Nuzzi described the campaign as a adrift, Morgan as unqualified, and fellow interns as only taking on the assignment to get in good with Weiner wife and Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin. And that’s not all Morgan called Nuzzi in a conversation with a reporter for Talking Points Memo
President Barack Obama is planning to bypass congressional Republicans with a surge of executive actions and orders on issues like voting rights, health care, job creation, the economy, climate change and immigration. And this time, he really, really, really means it. Really. Obama’s started to sell his pitch to congressional Democrats, meeting with caucus groups at the White House and going to the Hill on Wednesday morning to speak with House and Senate Democrats. “I have to figure out what I can do outside of Congress through executive actions,” Obama told the Congressional Black Caucus earlier this month,
Voter identification laws have Democrats up in arms. One of the reasons, as Nate Cohn illustrated last week, is that they disproportionately affected non-white and Democratic voters in North Carolina. This effect, however, only would have padded Romney´s lead in the state by 0.5pt to 0.8pt. In other words, it would only have made a difference in the tightest of elections, and North Carolina isn´t close to being the state that determines the winner in presidential elections. If Democrats want to be upset about something, they should turn their attention to felon and ex-felon voting restrictions.
A nthony Weiner´s mayoral campaign has imploded. But before a raft of new revelations about Weiner´s post-Congress sexting misadventures, he had a real chance of becoming the next mayor of New York City. In the meantime, Eliot Spitzer — Weiner´s fellow New Yorker, whose fall from grace was also well-documented — still has a good shot at becoming the city´s next comptroller. Despite their baggage, both men began their campaigns with a headstart on the competition. That headstart was provided not because they showed an aptitude for success in their previous political positions.
CLEVELAND – Three women held captive in a run-down home for a decade kept diaries documenting the horrific physical and sexual abuse they suffered on a daily basis, prosecutors said Wednesday. The women´s kidnapper, Ariel Castro, lured one of them into his Cleveland home with the promise of a puppy for her son and later locked all of them in a vehicle in his garage for three days when someone visited him, prosecutors said. Castro, a former school bus driver, claimed he didn´t have an exit strategy from his complicated double life and finally gave the women
WASHINGTON -- President Barack Obama´s national security team acknowledged for the first time Wednesday that, when investigating one suspected terrorist, it can read and store the phone records of millions of Americans. Since it was revealed recently that the National Security Agency puts the phone records of every American into a database, the Obama administration has assured the nation that such records are rarely searched and, when they are, officials target only suspected international terrorists. Meanwhile, at a hacker convention in Las Vegas on Wednesday, the head of the NSA said government methods used to collect telephone
Mark Levin, who hosts one of America´s top radio talk shows and is considered by supporters to be the people´s pundit on the Constitution, is rallying his 8.5 million-strong audience to demand an historic convention of state governments to halt the "oppressive power" of the federal government. The author of two New York Times bestsellers on the threats to the Constitution, Levin hopes his latest, "The Liberty Amendments," out mid-August, will spark the state lawmakers to tap a rarely used Constitutional provision to institute measures that would brake President Obama´s use of executive orders, bar thousand-page laws and
The former commander of special operations in Northern Africa told a closed-door briefing today that he was largely detached from events the night of the Benghazi attack as he was traveling at the time. The testimony of Col. George H. Bristol, USMC, Former Commander, Joint Special Operations Task Force-Trans Sahara, Marine Corps Forces Special Operations Command Africa, had been eagerly anticipated by members of Congress. Originally, lawmakers had been told by the Defense Department that he had retired — the actual date is Aug. 1, an “administrative error” according to the Pentagon — and that they didn’t have
FORNEY, Texas - George Zimmerman, the former Florida neighborhood watch leader cleared of all charges in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin, was pulled over for speeding in North Texas on Sunday, CBS DFW reports. According to the station, Zimmerman was armed when officers pulled him over on Highway 80 in Forney, east of Dallas. (Snip) The officer reportedly did not recognize Zimmerman, who was driving a Honda pickup. Zimmerman told the officer he was armed and was then told to put the weapon in his glove compartment, according to the station.
Arizona Sen. John McCain was the Republican Party´s 2008 presidential nominee and he still wants the keys to the Oval Office. But he is beginning to sound more like a fan of likely 2016 Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton. "She´s a rock star," he said in a newly released interview. "She has, maybe not glamour, but certainly the aura of someone widely regarded throughout the world," he added in a reference to her work as secretary of State. McCain, reportedly trying to win back his reputation as a GOP maverick, was asked by the New Republic
Serial sexter Anthony Weiner’s wife partly blamed herself last year when her horndog husband confessed to her that he was at it again. Friends and family told People magazine that Huma Abedin was kicking herself at the time for bailing out of couples counseling and focusing more on their newborn baby boy. But, thanks to a new round of joint therapy that continues even now, the couple was able to put the relapse behind them. “They really became a unit, and she feels much closer to Anthony now,” a relative told the magazine. That’s a long way from how Abedin
President Obama has been rolling up his sleeves campaigning across the country delivering a surreal stump speech message supposedly aimed at the middle class: big government works, Obamacare is manna from heaven, the wave of recent scandals are “phony” figments of the imagination, and all economic problems are the fault of the Republicans. Conveniently, he leaves out the bankruptcy of Detroit, a city run by his own party for more than half a century. His message is so stale and unconvincing, that even The New York Times and Washington Post have noticed. Both papers, usually loyal to Obama, remarked that
Gotta figure her lead would be even bigger without Joe Miller in the field here. Her nomination for the taking? Alaska should be a top tier pick up opportunity for Senate Republicans next year…but their top choice of a candidate is Sarah Palin. 36% of GOP primary voters in the state say they’d like Palin to be their standard bearer against Mark Begich to 26% for Mead Treadwell, 15% for Dan Sullivan, and 12% for Joe Miller.
Embattled Internal Revenue Service official Lois Lerner and an attorney in the Federal Election Commission’s general counsel’s office appear to have twice colluded to influence the record before the FEC’s vote in the case of a conservative non-profit organization, according to e-mails unearthed by the House Ways and Means Committee and obtained exclusively by National Review Online. The correspondence suggests the discrimination of conservative groups extended beyond the IRS and into the FEC, where an attorney from the agency’s enforcement division in at least one case sought and received tax information about the status of a conservative group,
Sen. John McCain — a Democrat? There was confusion Wednesday after the Arizona Republican mistakenly strolled into President Obama’s meeting with Senate Democrats at the Capitol. The room full of Democrats — who happened to be meeting in the same room where the Senate GOP usually holds their weekly policy luncheons — erupted in applause and laughter as the former Republican presidential candidate made his entrance. As McCain, 76, walked out of the Dem-filled space, reporters pressed him as to why he stepped foot in the room.
Colin Powell has admitted to exchanging ´very personal´ emails with a Romanian diplomat but denies having an affair with the much younger woman after a hacker threatened to release their intimate messages. The 76-year-old retired general told the Smoking Gun that he met Corina Cretu, 45, roughly 10 years ago when she was working as an assistant to the president of Romania. She is now a member of the European Parliament. ´After I left the Department of State in January 2005 we stayed in touch via email,´ he told TSG.
In preparation for the release of Oscar-bait film The Butler, Forest Whitaker, Oprah Winfrey, and director Lee Daniels (Precious) sat down with Parade magazine. The film chronicles a butler (Whitaker) who works in the White House through seven administrations. Winfrey plays the butler’s wife. In the interview, Winfrey explained her sadness that so few Americans know about the history of the civil rights movement: “They don’t know diddly-squat. Diddly-squat.” She then said of the historic use of the n-word, “I always think of the millions of people who heard that as their last
If we learned anything about Barack Obama in his first term it is that when he starts repeating the same idea over and over, what´s on his mind is something else. The first term´s over-and-over subject was "the wealthiest 1%." Past some point, people wondered why he kept beating these half-dead horses. After the election, we knew. It was to propagandize the targeted voting base that would provide his 4% popular-vote margin of victory—very young voters and minorities. They believed. He won. The second-term over-and-over, elevated in his summer speech tour, is the shafting of the middle class. But
