President Barack Obama warned America will not balance its budget within a decade because Republican plans to do so would entail slashing social programs many citizens rely on for support.
Even as he set out to woo lawmakers Tuesday on Capitol Hill, including Republican foes, Obama called for an approach that restores fiscal stability but also protects healthcare for the poor and the elderly and shields the middle class.
Congressman Paul Ryan (R-Wisc.) made a comment on NBC’s Meet the Press Sunday that is guaranteed to raise eyebrows on both sides of the aisle.
“If we had a Clinton presidency, if we had Erskine Bowles chief-of-staff at the White House, or President of the United States, I think we would have fixed this fiscal mess by now. That’s not the kind of presidency we’re dealing with right now.”

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama has offered his take on the debate between Vice President Joe Biden and Congressman Paul Ryan, saying “Joe just needs to be Joe.”
Odious remarks by GOP Missouri Senate candidate Cong. Todd Akin about how few pregnancies result from “legitimate rape” have done more than outrage people across the country and doom Akin’s bid to move up from the House.
It motivated the Romney campaign – – already trailing among women voters in recent polls – – to distance itself from Akin by assuring voters that Romney and Paul Ryan – – the “Romney-Ryan [...]
Wisconsin Congressman Paul Ryan’s favorables are up after the first blush of national media exposure following Mitt Romney’s selection of him as his vice presidential running mate. But as is generally the case with running mates, Ryan gives only a slight boost to Romney.
The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 50% of Likely U.S. Voters now have a favorable opinion of Ryan, while 32% view him unfavorably. This [...]
If tonight’s reporting is correct, and if Mitt Romney really does announce at 9 A.M. Saturday that Congressman Paul Ryan of Wisconsin is his running mate, Romney has made the most daring decision of his political career.
After spending weeks looking into Ryan’s history for The New Yorker, visiting his home town, and interviewing him twice, I am genuinely surprised that Romney chose him. First, let’s tally the risks of a Ryan pick.
For one thing, Ryan [...]

Four years ago, Americans slipped further into an intellectual coma, helplessly sold on a blank canvas, a political avatar whereby people could project their false hopes for a nation stuggling to maintain its relevant place in a rapidly changing world.
This recent short film presentation featuring David Icke successfully breaks down the modern political marketing marvel known as ’Brand Obama’, contrasting his transparent agitprop image to the much more genuine, substantial character of GOP Presidential candidate [...]

He said that the Fed has destroyed the incentlive to save by lowering and negating interest rates and thus pumping up bond prices. This really struck a chord with Sullivan, the look on his face was priceless with a most indignant face, he asked Dr. Paul … “so you are saying that Treasury bonds are in a bubble”?
“ABSOLUTELY” was Mr. Paul’s reply.
Interest rates are at all time lows which means that bond [...]
