CNN Laughfest.

I should have followed O's example and skipped this republican debate, but I just couldn't pass up the laughs.

Mitt is talking religion, Ricky is talking earmarks, and Newt is going after the moderator. (What else is new?) There is Ron. Ron is talking....well I actually don't know what Ron is talking about.

This might b the worst debate yet. I have no idea what any of these guys are talking about, and I am guessing that John King is having a hard time understanding them as well. This might explain why he is doing such a horrible job tonight. Maybe he is still scared of Newt. I am still scared of Rick. He thinks Satan has his "sights set on America". And he likes to talk about Nazis.  The whole Satan Nazi thing is not a good combination. At least he doesn't have on a sweater vest tonight.

Now they are talking about foreign policy. Sadly, they are as clueless in this area as all the others. Newt says that he would bomb Iran; they all have reservations about women serving in combat, and Mitt says that he would be expanding all areas of the military, not shrinking it. I guess his friends from Bain Capital will pay for it.

Rick is saying that Obama is helping the Muslims in the Middle East, and the implication is that he is one of them. Rick and Mitt agree on an Iran policy. Now I know there is no hope for the GOP. I actually thought that Mitt was the sensible one in the group. Now I am not so sure we can trust him with the red button. 

"Hamas is going to smuggle dirty bombs over the border into the US, says Mitt Romney. He repeats his line about if he is president, Iran will not get a nuclear weapon, but it will if Barack Obama is president."

On and on they go. Now Newt is talking about opening up America's energy sources.

I really should have followed Obama's example. John, please put us out of our misery.

Media Matters' David Brock runs from questions on organization's war on Fox


Media Matters for America (MMFA) founder David Brock refused to talk to the Washington Times affiliated radio show America's Morning News on Tuesday morning about the series of stories The Daily Caller has been reporting on for the past week regarding his organization's aggressive plan to go after the Fox News Channel.

According to the Media Matters documents obtained by the Daily Caller, part of the 2012 strategy was to treat the cable news channel like a political opponent and hire private investigators to look into the personal lives of Fox News employees who work both on the air and behind the scenes.

When the Tea Baggers got a lock on the primaries for the GOP, all candidates had to pass the litmus test for stoopids.
Makes the Goobers feel important and like their views were shared...but it was simply a small group of folks who never had real jobs and are able to be pains in the tuckus for others.

Didn't the neo-cons sell this dreck with Iraq? And how correct were they? Oh, and how many heroic, brave heroes of the Cons ever enlisted or accepted a commission for their Grand Game?

While the current crop of GOP candidates pass the litmus test for stoopid...they seem only acceptable to a very small subset of wite male dudez.

Do not confuse people from other islands with those from Puerto Rico. They are a nation of onion-eaters and mango shavers who would sooner repackage soap than burnish a nickel. They would walk a mile to paint a burro when their own well runs dry. They judge a man by his feather hat rather than by his moustache. I would no sooner sell a Puerto Rican a cable stay than I would ride the hurricane home. That is how I feel.

may god have mercy on us all

may each hobama nazi be most cursed!!!

karma is real

The last refuge of Obamaphiles is that no matter how many times the First Black President double-crosses us by cutting Medicare and Medicaid, no matter how completely be betrays his voters us by ignoring black unemployment, by deporting one million Latinos, by protecting the banksters responsible for the foreclosure crisis and by invading, bombing, occupying and subverting even more countries than the Cheney-Bush regime, his white supremacist tea party opponents are far worse. But what if Democrat Barack and the Republican tea partyers are just playing different positions on the same team?



The corporate moguls who run the US empire and its political processes are not fools. So when the Republican party deliberately pushes forward certifiable clowns like Michelle Bachman, Richard Perry, Herman Cain and Rick Santorum as its presidential contenders, we can be certain that matters are not quite what they seem. These pandering lunatics are only inmates of the asylum, which is run by the corporate entities that fund the careers of Democratic and Republic politicians alike --- the energy and insurance industries, corporate media and real estate, military contractors, and of course, Wall Street.

In the words of economist and financial historian Michael Hudson [6], the job of corporate American politicians is not to enact the policies their voters want. The corporate politician's job is to deliver those voters, those constituencies to their campaign contributors, so they can enact the policies their financiers desire. The fact therefore, that Democrats compared to Republicans, and sometimes even Democrats compared to other Democrats appeal to varied groups of voters accounts for why they sound different from each other. But the fact that they all depend on the same class of wealthy corporations and individuals to finance their political careers means that no matter what they tell their voters, the policies they enact once in office are pretty much the same.

ron paul 2012!!!

Since the forces financing Republicans are the same as those financing Democrats the directors of US political theater have the power to play games with us. For them, Obama is the preferable alternative. Only the First Black President could have disbanded the peace movement and rolled into town promising to “cut entitlements” without provoking a firestorm of protest. Only the First Black President could have accepted a Nobel Peace Prize with a war speech, and invaded an African country without millions of protesters in the street worldwide. Only the First Black President with a strong Democratic majority in Congress could have resumed offshore drilling after the Gulf BP disaster, and blocked any new regulation on the oil industry. Only the First Black President could have given GM back to its managers after sticking the unions with its underfunded health care and pension load. Only candidate Obama could have come in off the campaign trail in September 2008 to whip Democratic votes in the Democrat-dominated congress for the $3 trillion Bush bailout, and only the First black President could have quintupled down on that bailout, giving the banksters $15 trillion more once in office.

From their standpoint, Obama needed, and continues to need two things. First, Obama needs running room to his right. In order for Obama to enact the neoliberal policies of his militarist and bankster sponsors, the policy demands of Republicans had to move further and still further rightward. In other words, he needs Republicans to play crazy and crazier, so that wherever he lands can credibly be claimed to be a little better than what might have been under a Republican regime, even when Obama's position is actually to the right of Bush or Reagan. Secondly, the bankster favorite Obama needs to distract the attention of his voter base with a loud and persistent clamor over cultural issues and sustained furor over instances of personal [9] (but not institutional) racism among Republican candidates and supporters. Like in any production, every actor has a job to do, and everybody does their job.



When Republicans invade new countries, global public opinion can put millions worldwide in protest demonstrations in the street. When Democrats invade, there are no demonstrations. When Republicans propose social security, Medicare and Medicaid cuts, and try to regulate unions out of existence, public outcries and near general-strike situations loom. When Democrats do the same, all is quiet. Republicans could not even pass their own bailout bills with a Republican in the White House. So between bigoted, bumbling tea party Republicans, and level-headed, competent corporate Democrats, which is the greater evil? And which is the more effective evil?

@Mrs I boned a Chia pet. Is this a talking point from 2009? Obama has been president for 3 1/2 years, not 1 1/2. There are 307 Million Americans not 300. Democrats took the house and Senate in 2006 and controlled the purse strings including the Fannie and Freddie debacle that caused the economic crisis. Obama had the house, the senate and the presidency all democratic for the first two years and did whatever he wanted ,American people be damned.

Now what was your talking point about simple minded idiots again?

Why did the financial crisis happen? Because democrats had spent years creating the subprime mess. Barack Obama himself had participated in lawsuits to force banks to lend money to people who couldn't afford to pay it back.

More importantly, three and a half years later, things still suck. We should be at least two years into a boom. Despite a huge boost from the oil and gas industries due to Bush-era drilling leases and advances in technology like improved fracking, we still have high unemployment and anemic growth.

Why? Because Obama's policies have been a huge drag on the economy.

He's got to go.

Sage said...

Obama's political success rests on the outrageous notion that he is a moderate, a centrist, non-ideological, coolly rational, and uncommitted to any particular view of the world beyond what "the facts" say is best for America. People on the right have always been stunned that anybody could believe this, but it is exactly what millions of people believe.

The bad news is that he is extremely good at what he does. People who believe he is a bumbler, or has a low IQ, are engaged in wishful thinking, or perhaps they are victims of confirmation bias. Anyway, what Obama has mastered is using words, phrases, and images to mean more or less the exact opposite of what a conservative means when he says them, or indeed what most anyone means when he says it. He is able to couch self-evidently socialist ideas in language that most people identify as fuzzily conservative.

For example, he often speaks of Americans being able to "do great things," to "innovate," to "be leaders," to "pull ourselves up," and he decries "those who say America has lost its edge." This sounds like a paean to American exceptionalism and the ability of Americans to form private associations to achieve all sorts of productive and creative wonders. That is what people hear. What he actually means--what he always, always means--is that the U.S. government is capable of great things, that "coming together" in the form of Federal agencies is Americans' peculiar gift. He speaks of government in terms that most people reserve for the private sector, and sometimes in terms that people reserve for God Almighty. So independents and self-described liberal Christians are constantly "surprised" by what he does.

He speaks of our ability to innovate, to take care of ourselves, to care for our neighbors, to remain a people of faith, to be a force for good. What he means by all of these things is that faith in government is what makes us great, that the Federal government is the reason we can put our pants on in the morning, though of course people hear the exact opposite. Obama intentionally delivers speeches that steal the language of American post-war conservatism, and is very desirous of being compared to Ronald Reagan (many leftist writers have duly complied and made the comparison, stupid as it is). This is why, in my opinion, he is so lost without his teleprompter--it's because his entire shtick is based on a foul deception, and on using words to mean their exact opposite. It is why whenever he is off-camera or in a comfortable setting he constantly makes gaffes such as his "God and guns" remark. It is why he is so reluctant to do press conferences (has there been a president in our lifetimes who has talked so much and yet been so inaccessible?).

This "Marxist trick" may be old, but I'm sure we have never seen anyone so practiced and skillful in the art as our current president. Perhaps I ascribe too much importance to this element in Obama's public speeches, but it seems to me to explain a lot of otherwise confusing things, such as Timothy Dolan's shock and surprise at Obama's HHS mandate. Whatever Obama told him, I'm sure it sounded very much like, "We won't force you to provide anything you object to," while what it really meant was, "We're going to shove this down your fool throat whether you like it or not. More tea?"

Although I've only voted Democrat in my lifetime i will be the first to admit when there is a viable Republican candidate...

In 2012 there isn't not one.

Just three stooges. Attacking Obama. Yawn.

The Greek catastrophe is filled with lessons for the U.S. Like their counterparts in Greece, Democratic politicians are driven by a simple, irreducible desire, the desire to keep expanding the public sector no matter what, whether for the sake of their pet ideologies, their client groups, their friends, or themselves. They've demonstrated this in the last three years more clearly than ever before. Despite the financial crisis, they are coldly, shockingly unrepentant about wasting inconceivable amounts of taxpayers' money, as seen for example with the stimulus and the Solyndra fiasco, and they want--greedily, passionately want--to do more of the same. Consider their recently revealed requirement under Obamacare that the government provide totally free birth control to every woman in the country who wants it, and their notion, never heard before in this country, that 'access' to birth control, by which they mean totally free birth control, is an essential principle that no one may question. The Democrats have thus revealed the essence of their political being, which is that they will accept no limit on public spending, including the most wasteful, ruinous, and ideologically driven public spending, so long as they are not forced against their will to accept a limit by some power greater than themselves. Left to their own devices, leftist politicians will never behave rationally. Their ideology--and their greed--forbids it.

What are these crackas gonna do when they eliminate affirmative action completely and it doesn't affect us at all? Let's see how white women do without it.

Why do republicons continue in their attempts to rewrite history when there's a such thing as the internet?

People are dumb. Don't forget, Barack Obama has the same view on gay marriage that all of the GOP candidates have.

there is no suce thing as fagget marriage because that word means a union of one man and one woman.you can call it a fagget hook up but is is not a marriage. it is the same with the word gay it does not mean fagget. this recession was caused by the community reinvestment act and the national socialist democratic workers party out of control spending.bush did his part by not using the veto pen on spending bills but the major damage was done by affirmetave action leanding. do your home work before mouthing off about the democrats recession.tea party people are not racist but you dark skinned people are.

Good question. Same as when Newt threatened to sue anyone who used his own words. These guys are insane.

F*ck off, you palefaced, glass-eyed honky!! I know you're upset because you can't have your way with us anymore like your ancestors did; WAAAAH! Cry me a goddamn river, you stupid peckerwood. Why is it anytime you conservaturd KKKrackers show your hoods and swasticas in public you need police protection?? Because you're terrified of blacks, know we are more powerful and will beat the living shit out of all of you at the first opportunity. Fascist Repunklikkkan honkies have been redlining our neighborhoods for decades and then laughing at us for being unemployed; while at the same time allowing foreigners from all over the world to slip in this country and steal every open job in sight.
So slither back to the trailer park get drunk on Jack Daniel's and puke all over your dirty little children just like a good ol' Bo-honky troll.
