The biggest political problem faced by so-called “liberals” and so-called “progressives” in President Obama’s second term is how to prevent voters from holding them politically responsible as the public comes to realize how badly they were lied to during the first Obama term to win passage of Obamacare.
Most supporters of Obamacare embraced it because of a principled belief that everyone should have access to essential healthcare. But even the [...]
Instead of Changing their Behavior to Prevent Another Crisis, the Powers-That-Be Double Down On the Strategies that Caused the Financial Crisis In the First Place
Liberals blame deregulation and reckless Wall Street greed for the economic crisis.
Conservatives blame bad government policy.
Now, the D.C. politicians are doing the exact same things which got us into the crisis in the first place. For example, they are:
Pushing banks to make home loans to people [...]
Two months ago, independents tilted clearly in his direction, with 54 percent approving and 41 percent disapproving. Now, half of independents express a negative opinion of the president’s performance; just 44 percent approve.
The president has also seen an erosion in confidence among groups that he has counted as core supporters. Compared with a Post-ABC poll in December, the share of liberals who place their faith in Obama over Republicans when [...]

They are going to demonstrate in front of the House of Representatives. People is fed up with politicians’ corruption and private debt. Far-right and far-left groups are marching along with liberals, libertarians, social-democrats, conservatives, communists, anarchists against the political corruption.
A Government’s representative has said that this demonstration is a [...]
Why is it that none of the disturbed and evil men who kill movie-goers, brave soldiers, church members and children in school, has ever been identified as a conservative NRA member?
Ft Hood ~~~ Registered Democrat ~ Muslim
Columbine ~~~ Too young to vote; both families were registered Democrats and progressive liberals
Virginia Tech ~~~ Wrote hate mail to President Bush and to his staff ~ Registered Democrat
Colorado Theater ~~~ Registered Democrat; staff [...]
If Democrats are serious about trying to turn Texas blue, they should get a gander at a just-released poll of Lone Star State voters that found 67 percent of Republican respondents support the impeachment of President Obama.
Of greater concern for liberals: the poll was conducted by the left-leaning Public Policy Polling.
As a whole, Texans opposed impeachment 50 percent to 39 percent.
But in the crosstabs, PPP broke this down by party affiliation with [...]
by Joel B. Pollak, Breitbart:
Thousands rallied across the nation on Saturday in support of Second Amendment rights, and conservatives were reminded that Barack Obama’s second term presents a unique opportunity to rebuild. Our principles of individual liberty and constitutional government may be a minority creed, but they are still the best principles to have. Even liberals find them compelling–when they are not hypnotized by the Obama cult of personality.
The conservative movement [...]
The head of a Utah forensics company says it’s only fair that two liberal employees were let go because liberal policies are costing his business.
A Utah business owner says he fired two employees in large part because they supported President Barack Obama.
“They were Obama supporters. We just knew they were,” Terry Lee, owner of Terry Lee Forensics, a Cedar City, Utah, digital forensics company, told The Salt Lake Tribune on [...]
First owner George Burnett charged liberals a dollar more than conservatives at his Vernal, Utah smoothie shop.
Now, another Utah business owner — evidently inspired by that political stand — has fired two employees for supporting President Obama.
And it’s all completely legal.
Owner George Burnett charges liberals a dollar more than conservatives at his Vernal, Utah smoothie shop
Burnett, the owner of I Love Drilling Juice & Smoothie Bar, started charging liberals a $1 more [...]
Florida Sen. Marco Rubio came out strongly against President Barack Obama’s planned proposals to reduce gun violence, charging on “The O’Reilly Factor” Wednesday night that Obama doesn’t believe in the Second Amendment.
Fox News host Bill O’Reilly asked Rubio if Obama was “demagoguing” the issue.
“I’ll let you in on secret. I mean, the President is a liberal,” Rubio quipped. “And this is part of the liberals’ long-time dreams for our country, and he sees [...]
George Soros’ Center for American Progress (CAP) has published a list of 13 new pieces of legislation they claim we need right now, in the wake of the crime at Sandy Hook Elementary.
As you will see, these proposals–like others from liberals–would not have stopped the shooting from taking place: they would not even have hindered it. But they would make it harder for law abiding citizens to get the guns [...]
New York Gov. and likely 2016 presidential aspirant Andrew Cuomo used his State of the State address Wednesday to call for new gun controls, press Congress for post-Hurricane Sandy aid and propose a historic “women’s equality act” in the Empire State.
That latter proposal was seen by many observers as a nod to an important segment of the 2012 electorate for Democrats as well as Hillary Clinton’s political base.
Cuomo, who liberals [...]
For President Obama, the fiscal deal pending in the House would finally end four years of debate with Republicans about raising tax rates on the wealthy. But it seemed to reopen a debate within his party about the nature of his leadership and his skills as a negotiator.
While Mr. Obama got most of what he sought in the agreement, he found himself under withering criticism from some in his [...]
Tax part of fiscal-cliff deal reached, says McConnell
Lawmakers have reached an agreement on all tax issues related to the fiscal cliff, Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell said Monday afternoon, adding that negotiators are “very, very close” to a broader deal.
Optimism about averting the fiscal cliff increased Monday amid positive statements from McConnell and President Barack Obama, who during a public appearance at the White House said: “They are [...]
Liberals always say they don’t want to take away guns. But give them an awful tragedy like the Newtown, Conn. shooting and they get bolder and more honest. MSNBC host Ed Schultz showed a rare bout of such honesty during a brief Twitter exchange Saturday.
Welcome to Zimbabwe. This is not a parody — it is an actual report from the Washington Post:
Some economists and legal scholars have suggested that the “platinum coin option” is one way to defuse a crisis if Congress can’t or won’t lift the debt ceiling soon. At least in theory. The U.S. government is, after all, facing a real problem. The Treasury Department will hit its $16.4 trillion borrowing limit by next February at [...]
An Egyptian panel rushed through a draft constitution seen as undermining basic freedoms on Friday, resulting in mass protests in Cairo.
AFP reported that tens of thousands of protesters rallied as the opposition piled pressure on President Mohammed Morsi.
“Down with the constitutional assembly,” vast crowds armed with megaphones chanted as they filed into Tahrir Square, the epicenter of the uprising that overthrew Hosni Mubarak in early 2011.
Banners condemned “dictatorial Morsi” while [...]
Egypt’s opposition groups were scrambling to mount a challenge to their Islamist foes, as Tahrir Square was once again packed with protesters, and newspapers and television channels prepared to go on strike in protest over President Mohamed Morsi’s recent power grab.
The rally came after the nation’s constituent assembly, an Islamist-dominated body which many liberals and secularists wanted dissolved, added the finishing touches to Egypt’s new national charter in the early [...]
If you have a farm or a small business, would you like to pass it on to your children when you die? Well, unless Congress does something, it is going to become much, much harder to do that starting next year. Right now, there is a 5 million dollar estate tax exemption and anything above that is taxed at 35 percent. But on January 1st, the exemption will go down [...]

It wasn’t so long ago that the following statement could only appear in a dystopian novel or movie script:
The U.S. President has killed an American citizen without due process, without even charging him with a crime. His decision to do this has been challenged by members of neither party.
While the media-fueled frenzy goes on about how supposedly different Romney and the conservatives are from Obama and [...]
Nate Silver could be a one-term celebrity.
The New York Times’s resident political predictor says President Barack Obama currently has a 74.6 percent chance of winning reelection. It’s a prediction that liberals, whose heart rates continue to fluctuate with the release of every new poll, want to take solace in but somehow can’t. Sure, this is the guy who correctly predicted the outcome of the 2008 election in 49 of 50 states, but [...]
Way to go CalifornIO. Good job being a one party Marxist, Leftist hell hole. I hope you enjoy not being able to drive on all those freeways.
You see no one wants to refine your stupid gas mandates. It’s too expensive, and if anyone does try this expect to pay $10 to $20 a gallon at the pump.
Good thinking; make impossible carbon mandates on your gas supplies during a freaking economic [...]
A teacher in southern Egypt punished two 12-year-old schoolgirls for not wearing the Muslim headscarf by cutting their hair, the father of one girl said on Wednesday.
The governor of Luxor province – where the incident occurred – called the teacher’s actions shameful and said she had been transferred to another school. But rights groups say that some Islamic conservatives have been emboldened by the success of groups like Muslim Brotherhood and the [...]
The DEMOCRAT PLANTATION OVERSEERS are not happy. There is yet another escaped Democrat Plantation slave out there. This one is called STACEY DASH…
Liberals are the most racist, hateful people in America. Such “Tolerance”!
It all started yesterday afternoon when Dash tweeted out the following message on her Twitter page, accompanied by a photo of herself with an American flag:
“Vote for Romney. The only choice for your future. @mittromney @teamromney #mittromney [...]
There’s no doubt President Obama’s liberal supporters are worried by his lackluster performance in the Denver debate. “Everyone is in shock,” one show-business liberal told the Hollywood reporter. “No one can understand what happened.” The Obama faithful are offering the White House advice, talking points, pep talks — anything to improve the president’s performance when he next faces Mitt Romney at Hofstra University on October 16.
But for some liberal writers, [...]
RWB News: The great “uniter” is at it again with his masterful use of words to “energize” his base before elections.
Let’s see how the base is getting “energized.” Earlier Obama told members of the Black Caucus “We must guard the change.” After that we had a few more people getting beat up at political rallies by thugs.
We have a DOJ whistleblower saying the administration plans on massive voter fraud, a [...]
This is the moment Ann Coulter wound Whoopi Goldberg up to breaking point as she appeared on The View on Thursday to promote her controversial new book.
Coulter took less than 30 seconds to get under the host’s skin, confidently claiming: ‘I write these books because I try to correct things people believe that are just false.’
Armed with copies of Mugged, she argued that America’s ‘legacy of slavery’ has lead to civil [...]
I currently have health insurance with my company. It’s a pretty good plan as health insurance plans go, I have heard of worse for sure.
My cost right now is $370 per month to cover myself and my entire family (split over two checks at $185 per check). The company-paid part of our insurance cost the company $15,500 per year, per employee (somewhat less for individuals only but not by much).
Barack Obama cares about Barack Obama far more than he does about either Israel or Iran. And as far as Barack Obama is concerned, delaying the coming war between Israel and Iran until after the election is what is best for Barack Obama. Just think about it. If Israel attacked Iran right now, who would that please? It would mostly please hardcore Republicans, and they are not going to [...]
Conservative black U.S. Rep. Allen West, R-Palm Beach Gardens, says an ad that depicts him punching white women plays on racial stereotypes and would make liberals “apoplectic” if a Republican ran it against a black Democrat.
While Sarah Palin and Herman Cain joined the West campaign in ratcheting up criticism of the ad on Friday, an NAACP official said he didn’t find the 30-second spot to be racially offensive. And [...]
