It´s the Rubio and Rand Party, now
Politico, by Jim Vandehei and Mike Allen

Original Article

Posted By:garnet, 3/21/2013 8:36:02 AM

Want to know if Republicans finally back immigration reform, stand a chance of picking up Senate seats in the midterms, or get their act together by 2016? Instead of the GOP, watch the Rubio-Paul Party. Forget John Boehner. Ignore Karl Rove. The real action in the GOP is coming from the newest wing of the party, the one born in the spring of 2009 - the offspring of Tea Party activists that almost single-handedly propelled Republicans to control of the House. This new movement brought Marco Rubio and Rand Paul to Washington

For years the GOP has insisted on being middle-of-the-road, go-along-to-get-along and look where we are. The country has shifted left, left, and more left. It is time to listen to some conservative thought, even some libertarian thought. We have to turn this around somehow or all is lost, and I don´t just mean for the Republicans.

More like Palin and Cruz. Rand will self-destruct like his father. Libertarians stand for nothing.

In view of actual work instead of lip service, so far all Rubio seems concerned with is obtaining amnesty for illegal immigrants.

I don´t think Palin is in the running this time. If I have to choose between Rand, Ted Cruz and Rubio, I will go with Cruz. At least at this point in time. He´s very impressive! I don´t care much for Ron Paul or Rand Paul! I like Rubio a lot, but like Cruz a bit more after hearing him take on everyone in the Senate. He´s fearless and that´s exactly what we need right now.

I think it would be great if we could resist tearing down Rubio before we can get a good look. Surely we can allow him that much? That goes for our other young turks, too. We have some really, really good ones on our bench and there is time to sort them out.

#6,#7,#8 are correct. Don´t be wasting time dreaming of Palin.

Politico says that the nation is shifting left...and left. According to polls like Rasmussen the worst liberals amount to 22-25%. Ditto strong conservatives. If random people are asked about Conservative ideas without that label, they overwhelmingly agree with us, not the liberals. Propaganda from the lying, deceptive Politico and the MSM.

I like Rand enough but there is a big difference between using goofy rules of the debating society to make a point than what Cruz did to DiFi. She and nearly all of the liberals ( and many Republicans) need to be slapped even sillier than they already are. Cruz understands that is not afraid to do it daily if that´s what it takes.
The filibuster was cute, though.

Just wait until conservative groups start running ads charging that Republicans are rewarding lawbreakers, and willingly creating 10 million new Democratic voters by granting them amnesty. One Rubio confidant told us this pressure could ultimately convince the Florida freshman to back off his support. Same goes for Paul, who danced around his specific position this week before finally saying he does support some form of earned citizenship. [emphasis mine]

The notion that Latinos are going to vote conservative because they are mostly Christians is simply a wrong-headed notion. Most Latinos will vote for Democrats, so why would Republicans (or Liberterians) knowingly bring millions more Democrat voters into the country? The question is not a frivolous one.

The key word in the above quote is "earned". Citizenship, when conferred by vote rather than by earning it, will insure that those getting the vote will vote Democrat because that´s where the free stuff is.

But if you make illegals earn their citizenship, it separates the leeches from those who want to be Americans and work for a living and obey our tax laws.

As # 11 said - need to get a good look at Rubio--all the way back to his tenure in Florida as Speaker. What about abuse of gov´t credit cards for personal use that finally got reimbursed after the knowledge became public. What about his statement that he wants to move to DC "so he has more time with his children" but would retain citizenship of Florida on record, (Wexler, anyone?). Or if it might be like a Florida resident who voted for him has indicated that he might be in over his head on his house. This in addition to being the water carrier of McCain and Grahams immigration policy. Is he an ´easy´ use tool?

Yes, #9, you will "fall for that." We are obviously getting amnesty. We aren´t sending 12M people back, they aren´t going to self-deport (brilliant solution, Mitt), they are here for good. Whatever you call it, letting illegals stay and work and go to school looks a lot like amnesty.

I love Rand Paul, Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz. However, the best presidents do not come from the Senate. The best presidents are former governors. Why? Because they actually have executive experience. Look at what we got from the Senate last time...a community orgainzer who couldn´t balance a check book if his life depended on it. It´s not great speeches that gets things done (which is what senators do, they talk alot) its being able to execute your plans and follow through. Give me a governor or business executive anyday over a senator or congressman, unless that senator or congressman was a CPA or executive before they won their election.

No, The Obamacare Debate
Isn’t Over
American Spectator, by David Catron    Original Article
Posted By: garnet- 4/7/2014 7:03:29 AM     Post Reply
Last Tuesday, our President swaggered into the Rose Garden to announce that 7.1 million people have signed up for health coverage through Obamacare’s exchanges and that all further argument about the future of his “signature domestic achievement” was pointless: “The debate over repealing this law is over. The Affordable Care Act is here to stay.” The problem with this claim is that no one with a basic grasp of arithmetic believes Obama’s enrollment figures, only about a quarter of the electorate supports his “reform” law, and it is still the target of multiple lawsuits challenging its constitutionality.

   

 



 
Obamacare:They Shoot Horses

American Spectator, by David Catron    Original Article

A new survey reveals that public esteem for Obamacare is continuing to plummet, hitting yet another historic low. (snip) The AP survey shows that a mere “26 percent of Americans support the Affordable Care Act.” (snip) When the law was passed, 39 percent of the public supported it. But the President, along with his accomplices in Congress and the media, assured us that this percentage would rise once “reform” was implemented. In other words, Obama and his minions are no better at prognostication than they are at managing websites, insurance exchanges or anything else relating to health care.

One of the reasons Clarence Thomas gives for the studious silence he maintains during Supreme Court hearings is that his fellow justices have shown an increasing tendency to talk too much during oral arguments, thus preventing advocates from presenting their arguments coherently. Yesterday’s Supreme Court hearing in Sebelius v. Hobby Lobby Stores and Conestoga Wood Specialties v. Sebelius suggest that Thomas is right. Paul D. Clement, who appeared on behalf of the two companies challenging the Obamacare contraception mandate, was repeatedly interrupted and badgered by justices Sotomayor, Kagan, and Ginsburg.

Why Obama Scares Me

The most febrile of George W. Bush haters liked to claim during his tenure that the former president "scared" them. There is far more reason to be frightened by President Barack Obama, because fecklessness and inconstancy trigger wars. The outstanding example of weakness inviting aggression was the conduct of the democracies toward Adolf Hitler in the 1930s. Though it has been retroactively tainted as shameful cowardice, the policy of appeasement grew out of a "war weariness" that was far more understandable than our own. Britain and France suffered millions of dead and wounded in World War I and were desperate to

If Markos Moulitsas had his way there’d be no Affordable Care Act, no Dodd-Frank, no economic stimulus package. That’s the price when purity tests are applied to Democrats. In a remarkable post yesterday, Moulitsas, founder and publisher of the progressive community site DailyKos, celebrates the departure from the Senate of 10 moderate Democrats over the last decade, and makes clear his hope that Senators Mark Pryor (D-Ark.) and Mary Landrieu (D-La.) lose their tough reelection battles this year. He doesn’t name some other moderates in tight races, like Mark Begich (D-Alaska) and Kay Hagan (D-N.C.), but his logic suggests that he’d

Obamacare turns four this Sunday, and it´s never looked worse. For months, the news has not been kind. A broken promise, a broken website. Lost plans, lost doctors. Rising prices, rising frustration. Shrinking paychecks, a shrinking workforce. Unsecure data, insecure Democrats. The few Democrats willing to talk about Obamacare publicly struggle to defend the law on merits. So they´ve resorted to one last defense. They insist Republicans don´t have any ideas. Or as DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz phrased it on CNN´s Crossfire a couple months ago, "What is the Republican solution? … What is the solution to ensuring that everybody in

Public-sector unions took a big hit in Illinois Tuesday evening as a gubernatorial candidate they have poured millions of dollars into defeating seized victory in the state’s Republican primary. And now, in one of the few governor’s races Republicans see as a pickup opportunity this year, private-equity millionaire Bruce Rauner is poised to give Illinois governor Pat Quinn a run for his money and has a real shot at becoming the state’s first Republican governor in over a decade. Rauner set unions on edge during the primary campaign, criticizing their leaders and pledging to reform the state’s bankrupt pension system.

A Special Prosecutor for the IRS

The House Oversight Committee´s investigation of the IRS is at an inflection point. The president´s congressional supporters realize that the administration´s version of the agency´s targeting of conservative nonprofits seeking tax-exempt status—such as blaming local officials in the Cincinnati office or claiming that liberal groups were victimized along with conservative groups—is nonsense. Instead of debating the substance, they have resorted to procedural antics and misleading rhetoric. I have spent a considerable amount of time and energy on the investigation—which included 38 daylong interviews of IRS and Treasury employees ranging from line employees in Cincinnati to the IRS commissioner to the chief

Is anybody looking dumber than Bill de Blasio right about now? Tuesday’s Quinnipiac University poll gave him a 45 percent public-approval rating, down from 53 percent in January. This is consistent with earlier surveys, and it is astonishingly low for a new mayor. But de Blasio has been stepping in cow pies since he took his hand off the Bible on Inauguration Day. The consequences have ranged from minor embarrassments to the humiliating drubbing he’s now taking from Gov. Cuomo on education reform.

In early February this year, I wrote a column for The Hill in which I tried to talk Democrats off the cliff. I warned them against having such a gloomy outlook for November. To tell you the truth, though, when I saw the result from the Florida special election last Tuesday, I asked myself where my straight razor was because I thought I might need it. But before we succumb to 1994 and 2010 syndrome, I’d like to say that a lot of the things that I said in the February column remain true. The fundamental consideration is this: if

Next Tuesday, the Supreme Court will hear oral arguments concerning constitutional challenges to Obamacare’s contraception mandate brought by Hobby Lobby Stores and Conestoga Wood Specialties. (snip) Neither company objects to birth control, per se. Indeed, both provide coverage to their employees for most types of contraception. Yet civilization as we know it will collapse if the justices rule in their favor, according to the increasingly shrill prognostications of panicky liberals. Such a decision, progressives shriek, would constitute a victory for the dark forces behind the “war on women,” erode employee protections against discrimination, and dramatically reduce access to health care

Former GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney has sworn off running again for elected office, but Americans have certainly heard that one before. Speculation that Romney might run again has largely been stoked by the reunion he planned to host last month in Park City, Utah, for members of his 2012 campaign and debate team and a string of recent public appearances. He has appeared on TV news shows 12 times in the past six months. That’s essentially on pace with Michigan GOP Rep.

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

WASHINGTON- Seven million people signed up, so there is an appetite for President Barack Obama´s health care law, but that doesn´t guarantee success for the country´s newest social program. Big challenges are lurking for the next enrollment season, which starts Nov. 15. Chief among them are keeping premiums and other consumer costs in check, and overhauling an enrollment process that was advertised as customer-friendly but turned out to be an ordeal.

The president gave two speeches this week, one in the Rose Garden to talk about Obamacare and one in Ann Arbor, Mich., to push minimum wage increases. What did we learn? We learned that President Obama is most comfortable in campaign mode, and his campaigning has gotten downright ugly. His Rose Garden speech was a typical self-congratulatory moment for supposedly hitting 7.1 million Obamacare sign-ups — although we know that once again, the White House is ignoring some inconvenient truths. We also learned that the president was vain enough to asked the networks to cover his speech in prime time, but
