Dick Morris to CPAC: Stop
Talking Balanced Budget, Roe v.
Wade, Entitlement Reform

PJ Media, by Bill Straub

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 3/15/2013 10:18:41 AM

NATIONAL HARBOR, Md. – Dick Morris, whose once rock-solid political reputation has taken a shellacking in the wake of some questionable recent analyses, said Thursday that Republicans need to acknowledge “we lost’’ the last presidential election and make the changes necessary to get back in the game. “Republicans can come back,’’ he said. “They must come back.’’Morris, the former political consultant turned network talking head who has worked on both sides of the political aisle, is somewhat notorious for confidently predicting that Republican Mitt Romney would defeat President Obama

Comments:
And this is someone we should really pay attention to. s/o It is rather surprising they would invite him and not Chris Christie. What in the world does Morris have to offer? He was a disaster during the last election. I do have to admit that his idea of cuts to welfare and Medicaid rather than Medicare is a good one. We know the Democrats will never go for that.

I still like Morris. But he´s wrong, And now that he has said his piece, he needs to step back and just listen for awhile.

Yes, we lost. But Morris lost even more. And if he wants any of it back, he´s going to have to show some respect.

Most amusing. Dicky would have conservatives ´quit whining´ about the things in the US that need ´revising´ the most...

Half the country is in ´entitlement´ land now - with some ´factoids´ pointing out that, for instance - a single woman w/ two kids making 60 grand a year...can quit work...and with all of the ´welfare´ available to her - actually finish out the year with almost $1000 more disposable ´cash´ - than if she´d stayed employed.

Nah...nothing wrong with that picture, eh Dicky?

If Dick Morris really had anything of value to add to the political discourse, he would still be employed by the Clintons. And with the "sage" advice he gives to the Republicans, perhaps he IS still employed by the Clintons. I have always believed he is duplicitous.

All of these "pundits" sure don´t have to worry about the effects of the our disastrous dem and rub "representatives" guys like Morris make so much money with their advice, that when it´s wrong, they don´t have to care... They don´t feel the impact either way.

Maybe instead we should just eliminate the middle man and all register democrats.

Republicans need issues that can generate public support, such as health care reform and education reform. Average voters understand that their health insurance premiums are extortionately high and that their education dollars are going to waste.

Morris is very good about figuring out what happened and why, but he has never been very good at predicting. He can tell you with great accuracy where people are in their decision making process but he has never been very good at predicting. People who don´t like him use his flawed predictions against him at their peril of missing what he is good at. Just because he´s bad at what he is bad at, doesn´t mean he isn´t good at what he is good at.

Abandoning your values certainly sounds like a winning strategy. Sure worked for Romney, or maybe he never had any values. In any event 4 million Republicans stayed home. In December of 2014 maybe Dick will tell us why we have a speaker Pelosi again. Probably because we didn´t abandon enough values.

Morris is dead wrong. Most Hispanics or Latinos who voted for Obama and the liberal Democrats are poor working people with limited educations who earn low wages and have large families.

The reason that they voted for Obama and the liberal Democrats is that they believe that the Democrats intend to help them by expanding social welfare programs and access to those programs. That´s the number one reason why they voted as they did, as when you are a poor person without any money or healthcare you need those programs to survive.

They also know that the way the system works, one man one vote, means that if there is an amnesty for the 11-20 million illegal aliens here now, numbers that eventually turn into 10 million or so new votes will mean that the Hispanic or Latino communities in the USA will gain much more political power.

The vast majority of illegal aliens are also poor generally uneducated people, who when they are able to find work, earn a low wage and also have large families. Common sense and human nature will tell you that once legalized and made eligible to participate in all the affirmative action, social welfare, and healthcare programs, that to survive here, they will take advantage of those rights, benefits, and services social programs in a massive way, the liberal Democrats will make sure they do that.

#2, and that´s how we get back into the game - reminding those folks on entitlements that they need to have a prosperous, productive, and growing economy that has the ability to support those entitlements.

First order of business, energy.

We all use it, and so does every gov´t building and entity, which means we pay for it there too (electricity, gasoline for police and fire vehicles, heat for schools, etc.)

Work the areas where it´s most needed like in PA, OH, WV, CO, CA, and even NY.

Illustrate how developing those resources is important, and can be done responsibly, and ecologically.
How those revenues will lower costs of gov´t expenses, and help stretch dollars.
How those revenues help pay for the salaries of teachers, police, fire, and all those pensions.

Those folks will start to get it,and realize the Democrat left isn´t their answer, but part of the problem.

We can improve technology to use coal-fired power plants.

Speaking exclusively to MSNBC host Ari Melber, Attorney General Eric Holder sharply criticized state-level voter identification policies and said that he believes those policies are a “remedy in search of a problem.” He added that, while some may be arguing for voter ID in good faith, he believes that most are advocating for this policy in order to “depress the vote” of those who do not support the “party that is advancing” voter ID measures. “I think many are using it for partisan advantage,” Holder said of voter ID. “People have to understand that we are not opposed to photo identification in

Over the course of my three years in the military, I´ve met men and women with stories that have shocked, humbled and enlightened me. In a world where less than 1 percent of the American population serve in the military, people like Lone Survivor´s Marcus Luttrell and American Sniper´s late Chris Kyle are one step away from being fictional to most. It´s hard to imagine that stories of such heroism exist, but they do. I remember reading books in high school like The Iliad and other classic stories about warriors that defied human limitations and the frailty of mortality. . I always found myself wondering why we only read about warriors

An Italian adventurer will be packing his bags and moving to an iceberg in Greenland so he can reverse global warming. He plans on living there for eight to twelve months, which is the length of time he expects that his new home will exist before it melts into water. In the Spring of 2015, Alex Bellini will bring his backpack, replete with 300 kilos of dehydrated food and some electronic equipment and his floating Kevlar survival capsule. This will come in handy down the road when he wakes up one morning floating adrift in the Atlantic Ocean. Of course, that is if everything goes as planned.

For instance, she got to do a new anti-Christian, pro-abortion PSA in which she met Jesus – or as he called himself, “Jesus ***** Christ.” Predictably, the Jesus Silverman met was upset by “People who use my name for tolerance and oppression.” Oh, and he told her “fertilized

The Obama administration’s testy relationship with the press is nothing new for Washington, but it’s now extended to Colorado and has touched off a firestorm after Interior Department officials booted local reporters from a public meeting earlier this week. Journalists with Colorado´s Craig Daily Press and at least two other media outlets were barred from a Tuesday question-and-answer session with Interior Secretary Sally Jewell, despite the fact that members of the public were allowed to attend. “What happened would be in complete alignment with the administration’s policies. We were promised the most transparent administration ever and instead we’ve gotten the opposite,” said

CAMDEN, N.J. - Gov. Chris Christie is praising a new pilot program that is offering free hot dinners to students in a half-dozen Camden schools. Christie spoke Thursday at the Dudley Family School to promote the program, which is now serving between 75 and 125 students at each location where it´s operating. He says the concept could be expanded across the city, which ranks the most impoverished in the country. Christie said he´s "always believed that it´s our inherent responsibility to provide every child in the state with a high-quality education" though he has fought lawsuits from a group pushing for more funding

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce is a politically entrenched synod of special interests. These fat cats do not represent the best interests of American entrepreneurs, American workers, American parents and students, or Americans of any race, class or age who believe in low taxes and limited government. The chamber´s business is the big business of the Beltway, not the business of mainstream America.

The Democrats´ new much-vaunted master plan for annihilating the Tea Party movement calls for aggressive class warfare, demagoguery, and lying about the beliefs, motives, and goals of Tea Party supporters, Sen. Chuck Schumer revealed yesterday. Echoing President Obama´s infamous "bitter clingers" remarks, the New York Democrat argued that Tea Party supporters are cartoonish figures who are easily ridiculed. Invoking all the usual liberal cliches about conservatives, Schumer said the Tea Party is successor to "the Know-Nothings, Prohibitionists, Father Coughlin, and Huey Long." In other words, he believes the movement is a collection of hicks, yahoos, neo-Luddites, fascists, male chauvinists, and racists fearful

If there is anything New York doesn´t need it´s more reasons for Empire State residents to flee. Over the last decade (2001-11) New York´s population fell by 1.6 million. Many disgruntled New Yorkers said enough, packed up and left the state. This was a larger population drain than suffered by any other state. Congratulations. That´s why Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo´s declaration that "extreme conservatives ... have no place in the state of New York" was so dumbfounding.

In politics, lying is the new sex. Even the lesser sin, exaggeration, is grounds for questions about your suitability to run for office. Americans may be becoming more like the French in tolerating peccadilloes (just ask Rep. Mark Sanford of South Carolina or Sen. David Vitter of Louisiana about surviving a sex scandal), but get a detail wrong about whether you divorced at 21 or at 19, and woe unto you. That’s what happened to Wendy Davis over the weekend. You may know her as the Texas state senator in pink sneakers who delivered an 11-hour filibuster against abortion restrictions in June.

The Pentagon on Wednesday is expected to announce widespread changes to rules governing religious items and religion-based physical attributes that service members can maintain while in uniform — including beards, some religious tattoos, and turbans. NBC News obtained an early draft of the new Department of Defense instruction which states that the military will make every effort to accommodate “individual expressions of sincerely held beliefs” (conscience, moral principles, or religious beliefs) of service members. It goes on to say that unless doing so could have an adverse impact on military readiness, unit cohesion, good order and discipline, health and safety,

Scandal-plagued Anthony Weiner — whose wife is a close associate to Hillary Clinton — laid it on pretty thick for the former first lady this week, characterizing her as quite possibly the best politician for the presidential role in the entire history of the United States. On Larry King’s Ora TV show, Mr. Weiner said: “If Hillary were to run, she’d be an amazing candidate, arguably the most qualified candidate in the history of the United States ever to run for president,” The New York Post reported. Mr. Weiner’s sexting scandal, which began in Congress but ran through his New

What’s so great about Zulu? To answer that question properly, you need to pass this test first. 1) Do you know Men of Harlech off by heart? 2) Can you name at least half of the 11 Victoria Cross winners in the film (by their nicknames where possible) without resorting to Google? 3) Have you ever found yourself stirred to ridiculous feelings of patriotism by John Barry’s magnificent film score on the morning commute? I really hope someone else answers “yes” to all three, otherwise you can chalk me up as a lone madman. Zulu--released 50 years ago this week--is

Maybe it’s because “Bubba” just doesn’t have the same je ne sais quoi as the “Gipper,” but Bill Clinton is apparently jealous of the reverence Republicans give former president Ronald Reagan. According to the much-talked-about New York Times Magazine feature story on the world around Hillary, Bill and Chelsea Clinton, the former president is described as miffed that Democrats don´t treat him like Republicans do Reagan. Amy Chozick reports: “People close to Bill Clinton have told me repeatedly that it irks them that Democrats don’t talk about the dignified, slimmed-down, silver-haired former president with the same reverence Republicans give Ronald Reagan.” Her story,

Attorney General Eric Holder reiterated his 2009 claim that Americans are a “nation of cowards” on racial issues on Thursday. Holder’s effort to profile the entire nation as cowards came during a friendly interview with the University of Virginia’s Miller Center, where was asked if he would take back his 2009 remarks. “I would not take that back,” he replied. As usual, Holder did not brave questions from the audience or from other reporters in the room. In 2009, Holder claimed that “though this nation has proudly thought of itself as an ethnic melting pot, in things racial, we have always been and we

New York Mayor Bill de Blasio emphatically backed New Governor Andrew Cuomo’s controversial remarks that “extreme” conservatives – which he defined as being pro-life, second amendment advocates, or supporters of traditional marriage – “have no place in the state of New York.” “I stand by that 100 percent,” de Blasio told reporters at the U.S. Conference of Mayors in Washington, D.C. on Thursday. “I agree with Governor Cuomo’s remarks. I interpret his remarks to say that an extremist attitude that continues the reality of violence in our communities or an extremist attitude that denies the rights of women does not

TOPEKA — A man who provided sperm to a lesbian couple in response to an online ad is the father of a child born to one of the women and must pay child support, a Kansas judge ruled Wednesday. Topeka resident William Marotta had argued that he had waived his parental rights and didn’t intend to be a father. Shawnee County District Judge Mary Mattivi rejected that claim, saying the parties didn’t involve a licensed physician in the artificial insemination process and thus Marotta didn’t qualify as a sperm donor, The Topeka Capital-Journal reported.
