Obama 2008’s Gifts On Hillary’s Birthday

Jeez, here we go again. The recycled argument from Obama defenders is “forget what happened in 2008” and vote for Obama Dimocrats. We thought we had dispensed with that stupidity in our article Is It Still 2007? This latest ploy to get votes for Obama Dimocrats demands ignorance. This latest flim-flam insists we not learn from the past.

We believe voters/people do and should learn from the past.

The lessons of 2008 are exactly as we described back in 2008. We declared Obama was the death of the Democratic Party. We knew that Obama’s rise meant the birth of an Obama Dimocrat Party based on race-baiting. The race-baiting by duplicitous blacks and wannabee totalitarian youngsters (along with their gentry white liberal parents) relied on tactics used by European fascists and leftists.

Hey we said the ones that would be most hurt by Obama and the Obama Dimocrat Party would be the foolish blacks who allowed themselves to be persuaded by the duplicitous blacks to vote for a black man because of skin color. We said that the young’uns would live to regret their votes and support for the cult of Barack Obama once they became victims of the Obama regime’s policies.

Yes, 2008 matters. The “Mistake in ’08” teaches us what to avoid and what not to do. The lessons of 2008 are a guide to the future.

Yet, Obama cult leaders (under the thinly veiled pretense they deplore the cult leader and are wise to him even as they do everything they can to make sure he is not made irrelevant by a resounding Republican victory in 2014) persist with “forget 2008” and “lean forward”.

You cannot lean or go forward without an analysis of what went wrong in 2008. In 2008 the Democratic Party ceased to exist. In 2008 the Obama Dimocrat Party was born. In 2016 the Obama Dimocrat Party must be destroyed in order to “lean forward” and resurrect a Democratic Party stripped of the indecencies of past decades.

So ask yourselves before you vote and prepare to “lean forward”: how did all those 2008 Obama promises work out?

For Hillary’s birthday we thought we would unwrap as gifts several articles which provide answers (We provided those answers back in 2007/2008 only to be scoffed at by the Obama cult. Now a little more than a week before the 2014 elections some unlikely voices echo us.)

Remember that “coalition of the ascendant” which to us sounded eerily like “the thousand year Reich”? Cult leader Barack Obama was the “lean forward” “turn the page” from the past Goliath to shape the future. But Goliath he lieth then laid down and dieth.

Stu Rothenberg cheered Obama on in 2008 and declared Obama the future of a new majority. The future did not last long, neither did that new majority:

Will Obama Leave the Democratic Party Better Than He Found It?

Barack Obama was elected on a swell of energy and enthusiasm, but he might leave the Democratic Party worse off than when he took office. [snip]

When Obama became the Democratic presidential nominee in late August 2008, his party held 236 seats in the House, 51 seats in the Senate, and 28 governorships. In the 2008 elections, Obama won the White House, and Democrats grew to 257 House seats, 59 Senate seats (including independents) and 29 governorships.

After these midterm elections, Democrats could hold roughly 195 House seats, 48 Senate seats and no more than half of the governorships.

After a historic presidential candidacy, unprecedented fundraising and a vaunted get-out-the-vote operation, it’s very possible that the Democratic Party will fall below below the levels it was at before Obama took office.

Democratic Party is dead, dude. Barack Obama killed it and now it is a faded cult. Only Tommy Vietor at the Hillary Clinton 2016 operation thinks otherwise.

Mess-iah is mud and the cult is worried:

From patron saint to pariah: how Barack Obama became toxic for Democrats

With midterm elections only two weeks away, Democrat candidates are doing something they never would have dreamed of in 2008: distancing themselves from President Barack Obama [snip]

Pollsters have noted that Mr Obama’s popularity has declined even with those key demographics like women and minorities that twice propelled him to the White House.

A poll last month found that women now disapprove of the president by a 50pc to 44pc margin, a near reversal of Mr Obama’s 55-44pc advantage among women in the 2012 race, according to the Washington Post/ABC News survey.

Having ducked the chance to push immigration reform, the same poll found his support among Hispanics had fallen nearly 20 points since the summer of 2013.

The African-American electorate is more dependable – 87pc still approve of the president – but the difficulty is motivating black voters to turn out in a non-presidential election year.

A recently leaked memo by a former Obama pollster predicted “crushing losses” if Democrats failed to mobilise the black vote – but also found that half of black Americans did not even know when elections were taking place.

Hey, you live by the cult, you die by the cult. You vote only based on color of skin and you die based on color of skin. A cult of personality and skin color, we argued in 2008, is not a good foundation for a political party.

Hey, were you offended a few paragraphs above when we spoke of “duplicitous blacks”? That’s racist right? You can’t say any black person is evil, lazy, duplicitous, nasty, arrogant/uppity, stupid, etc. without the “RACIST!” brand seared onto you. When we spoke the truth about Barack Obama flim-flam man in 2008/2007 we got called “RACIST!”

The real racists of course are those that don’t see black people as “people” at all. The real racists who controlled the dialog in 2008 see black people as their little organ grinder monkeys – so cute and sweet – all they want is a pat on the head. The real racists don’t see that black people can be noble but they can also be swine. The real racists don’t see that black people can be competitive flim-flam con-men and con-women in any flim-flam Olympics. The real racist don’t see that some black people will attack black people who see the truth and tell the truth.

In 2008 we saw Hillary Clinton supporters who happened to be black called “race-traitors” and worse. John Lewis at first endorsed Hillary. Then John Lewis shamed himself forever when he chained himself to the slavery of the Obama cult because he was race-baited by fellow blacks.

Hey, Charles Barkley must be a racist because he tells the truth about black people – some black people:

”Unfortunately, as I tell my white friends, we as black people, we’re never going to be successful, not because of you white people, but because of other black people. When you’re black, you have to deal with so much crap in your life from other black people. It’s a dirty, dark secret; I’m glad it’s coming out.”

Barkley said that young black men who do well in school are accused of “acting white” by their peers. “One of the reasons we’re never going to be successful as a whole, because of other black people. And for some reason we are brainwashed to think, if you’re not a thug or an idiot, you’re not black enough. If you go to school, make good grades, speak intelligent, and don’t break the law, you’re not a good black person. And it’s a dirty, dark secret.”

“There are a lot of black people who are unintelligent, who don’t have success,” he continued. “It’s best to knock a successful black person down because they’re intelligent, they speak well, they do well in school, and they’re successful…”

We’re the only ethnic group who say, ‘Hey, if you go to jail, it gives you street cred.’ It’s just typical BS that goes on when you’re black, man.”

Yeah, you have to vote for the black man if you are black otherwise you are a race traitor – as black Hillary Clinton supporters found out – in 2008.

So black people voted en masse for black Barack Obama. So how is that working out black masses? How do the black bigots like their black Mess-iah as their communities are decimated?:

Black disappointment with Obama threatens Democrats

Black voters’ disappointment with President Barack Obama, who they so eagerly embraced for so many years, could be costly on Election Day to Democrats, who badly need a big African-American turnout to win Senate and gubernatorial races in key states.

Instead, many African-Americans see an unemployment rate well above the national average, continuing problems with crime in many neighborhoods, and a president more interested in trying to help other voting blocs that didn’t give him such unwavering support.

He talks about same-sex marriage in a nod to the gay and lesbian community. He discusses immigration and its benefits, an issue particularly important to the Latino community. He fights for equal pay, a vital issue to the women Democrats so avidly court.

The black community, which gave Obama support like no other group, too often doesn’t see the investment paying off.

Hey, you live by the cult, you die by the cult. Race-baiting got Barack Obama where he is. Now even the stupid blacks that voted based on skin color are getting what they deserve. The black middle class is decimated while Obama golfs.

Keep on voting for Barack Obama black people. Stupidity is as stupidity does.

We had this idea that once we got the first black president, all our problems would be solved,” said Aaron McKinney, a Miami community organizer. He walked around the Jackson Soul Food restaurant in Overtown one day recently urging people to vote.

Stupidity. Get votes for the flim-flam man who is flim-flamming – you. Stupid, stupid, stupid.

Obama Dimocrats will trot out the “RACIST!” horse again in 2014. That’ horse of a race-baiting color is already on the track running laps:

Historically, the use of race in this manner is a sign of worried campaign, who have access to internal polling the general public does not. We’ve seen it this cycle in North Carolina, where parishioners at a black church received fliers using images of a lynching and warning if Democrat Kay Hagan loses President Obama will be impeached, and Georgia, where Democrats told voters to vote for Democrats “to prevent another Ferguson.” Now we see it in the very, very blue Maryland.

Black hustlers profit by race-baiting. But the big race-bait hustlers are the white liberals who use black people like organ grinder monkeys in need of a pat on the head and a race-baiting treat:

Churchgoers in Fayetteville returned to their cars Sunday to find a political flyer on their windshield — which is to be expected 16 days before an election. But this flyer was different from the normal “Vote for candidate X” or “Oppose ballot question Y” fliers people are used to. This flyer was a picture of the lynching of a black man by a white crowd with the words “Kay Hagan Doesn’t WIN! Obama’s IMPEACHMENT Will Begin! Vote in 2014.”

The church is Kingdom Impact Global Ministries, a predominantly African-American congregation. Dawn McNair’s daughter found one of the fliers on her mother’s car and noticed the picture. “My daughter said, ‘Mom, look in the background. They’re lynching somebody.’ It’s the lynching of an African-American man,” Dawn told the Fayetteville Observer.

The message to the black parishioners was clear: Vote for the Democrat to protect the black president.

The Obama Dimocrat Party race-baits for fun and profit. Other than malicious black leaders the biggest exploiters of the race-bait lies are white liberals grinding on that organ.

It’s a calvacade of race-bait by the Obama Dimocrat Party that you will be voting for:

The 2014 Race Card

Democratic appeals to racial division are worse than ever. [snip]

Mr. Obama’s approval ratings are so bad that Democrats will need to drive a huge turnout to drag many incumbents over the victory line. The core of their political base are African-Americans, more than 90% of whom still register high approval of the President, and many of whom reside in battleground Senate states like Georgia, Louisiana and North Carolina. The party’s problem is that black turnout often drops sharply in midterms.

Hope and change are long gone, so Democrats are now playing the race card to scare black Americans to the ballot box. At the milder end of this spectrum is the Democratic National Committee’s appeal that the midterms should be a gesture in racial solidarity. “GET HIS BACK,” reads an ad the party committee is running in black newspapers. “Republicans have made it clear that they want our President—Barack Obama—to fail. If you don’t vote this November 4, they win.”

The harder, nasty edge is playing out in individual campaigns. The Democratic Party of Georgia is distributing a flyer that shows two young black children holding signs that say “Don’t Shoot.” The flyer reads: “If You Want To Prevent Another Ferguson In Their Future . . . VOTE.”[snip]

What Ferguson has to do with pressing the Senate candidacy of white Georgia Democrat Michelle Nunn isn’t clear, other than that Ms. Nunn can’t win without a resounding black vote.

In North Carolina, black residents have received flyers that show a lynching scene, with the superimposed words: “ Kay Hagan doesn’t win! Obama’s impeachment will begin! Vote in 2014.” [snip]

In Maryland, where Democrat Anthony Brown is running to become the state’s first black Governor, the state Democratic Party has released a flyer showing pictures of a civil-rights march, a “colored waiting room” sign, and Donald Trump alongside the words: “Where’s the birth certificate?” The flyer ends: “In Maryland, it’s our turn to take an important step in the journey . . . Vote for Anthony Brown.”

Democrats are also building on the fears stoked by Eric Holder ’s Justice Department about voter ID laws. Kentucky Democratic Senate candidate Alison Grimes is running a radio ad in urban areas in which a male narrator claims she is a “champion” for civil rights. The ad goes on to say that Republican Senator Mitch McConnell “has been leading the Republican effort to take away our voting rights. Just like he blocked everything from getting done in Washington, he’s blocking the ballot box and trying to silence our voices.”

That’s the Obama Dimocrat Party. Race baiter Alison Grimes. Race-baiter Anthony Brown. Race baiter Kay Hagen. Race-baiter Michelle Nunn. That’s the Obama Dimocrat Party Obama supporters want you to support with your votes.

Barack Obama race-baited in 2008. “They’re going to try to make you afraid of me. ‘He’s young and inexperienced and he’s got a funny name. And did I mention he’s black?’” Obama thugs branded Hillary, then McCain, then Romney “racists”. That’s the party Obama supporters want you to endorse with votes.

What does a vote for the race-baiting Obama Dimocrat Party get you? More race-baiting.

Recently Obama supporter Clarence Page wondered “where is Obama’s political movement?” Well Clarence, there never was a “political movement”. It was always a cult of personality gift wrapped in race-baiting.

Blacks who vote based on skin color will never learn. And you’ll always have the young and stupid to vote for Obama Dimocrats. That’s what we were told and what we debunked. Our debunk was right and even the young and stupid have grown older and wiser via the school of hard knocks:

Obama’s youth votes mutinies, ‘disaster’ election predicted for Dems

A prominent Democratic pollster is warning that the election looks to be “a disaster” for Democrats because younger, so-called millennial voters, are abandoning President Obama’s party.

“Millennials could have the definitive impact on the election, and that impact could be from them not showing up,” warned Celinda Lake.

“They look to have the lowest turnout rates right now which would be a disaster for progressive candidates,” she added in an online interview for Harvard University’s Institute of Politics.

Lake, one of the Washington’s top pollsters, said that younger voters are frustrated with the Democrats and feel abandoned by politics.

“That’s the biggest concern right now for Democrats and progressives in particular, is that millennial voters look very, very discouraged. They don’t think that anyone has particularly spoken to them, anyone has been doing anything for them, it’s a bad economy, it’s expensive education, and all the kinds of concerns that millennials have,” said Lake.


So has Hillary Clinton learned from 2008 as much as the young and stupid learned? Is this smart or stupid?:

A Clinton aide said she is relying on the recommendations of the Democratic national and state committees and on the White House when choosing where to campaign. Much of her effort thus far has been on behalf of Senate candidates, as Democrats face the likelihood that they will lose their slim Senate majority in the Nov. 4 vote.

Rely on the White House???? That “dude” Tommy Veitor thinks this is real smart. Or at least he likes Hillary’s sabotage of herself because it profits his lord and master Barack Obama whom he serves so well.

How can anyone but Obama defenders think this is at all smart? The arguments Hillary Clinton made in 2008 have won the day. Barack Obama is a proven failure for the very reason Hillary stated back then. But now recycled Obama cultists under a disguise of being Hillary supporters whisper, then shout, in Hillary’s ear that she should use her talents and abilities to prop up the Obama Dimocrat Party in 2014 and 2016.

Any support for the Obama Dimocrat Party in 2014 by Hillary Clinton will be paid for in full in 2016. The voters will not forget.

Not that the voters still believe the Obama Hope and Change crap from 2008. On this Sunday poll dump: GOP surging toward the finish line:

On Sunday, NBC News released new data from a variety of races. NBC News/Marist surveyed the electoral landscape in Colorado, Iowa, Kansas, Arkansas, South Dakota, and North Carolina and they found, universally, that the political winds are at the Republicans’ backs.

When asked who should control the next congress a majority of likely voters say that should be the Republicans.

Hillary Clinton’s 2008 arguments against “blank slate” Barack Obama have been proven to be on target. That’s a nice birthday gift for Hillary.

Another birthday gift for Hillary comes via The Hill:

Yet it’s not clear that sticking her neck out to save Sen. Mary Landrieu and/or Michelle Nunn will help Clinton much. Should Democrats hold on to a one- or two-seat majority, the former secretary of State would have to spend the next two years defending Obama and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid. It would be far better for her campaign to run against a crazy, obstructionist, overreaching GOP Congress.

Now there’s a “smart” gift. The Hill is suggesting, as we have much more vividly, that a cost/benefit analysis advocates for a sit back and watch the Obama Dimocrat Party implode.

Will Hillary sit back and enjoy this birthday gift? We hope so.

  1. We wanted to post the videos from the senate race in Georgia which Wbboei previously only linked to:


    Three New Ads Hit Michelle Nunn in Georgia Senate Race

    The Ending Spending Action Fund has upped the ante in Georgia with a new $1.3 million ad buy, hitting Democrat Michelle Nunn across three fronts: her deference to an ever more unpopular Obama; Nunn’s ultimately embarrassing attempt to use former President George H.W. Bush in a PR stunt; and Congressman Jack Kingston’s endorsement of Nunn’s opponent, Republican David Perdue.



  2. Headline at DrugeReport:


    The story at the Times:


    The Obama administration has expressed deep concerns to the governors of New York and New Jersey and is consulting with them to modify their orders to quarantine medical volunteers returning from West Africa as President Obama seeks to quickly develop a new, nationwide policy for the workers, according to two senior administration officials.

    One administration official said the federal government has been pressing the governors to back off their decisions, which quarantine all medical workers who had contact with Ebola patients. But another official said the administration has not specifically asked the governors to reverse their policies. [snip]

    On Sunday both governors, Andrew M. Cuomo of New York and Chris Christie of New Jersey, stood by their decisions, saying that the current federal guidelines did not go far enough. [snip]

    But in that time, two more states — Illinois and Florida — announced that they were instituting similar policies, as some members of the public expressed outrage that the infected patient in New York City had used the subway and gone bowling just before developing symptoms.

  3. as stated in a few threads back .. I do not recognize the current Hillary Clinton. Was I fooled or has she actually changed into what your topic encompasses?? She is not distancing herself from them, she continues to embrace all the “racists” who dared call she and her husband “racists”. S M H

  4. Perhaps HRC thinks that she can’t win in 2016 without the support of the Obama Dimocrat race baiters and needs to show that she remained loyal to the party despite the electoral disaster of 2014. If so, then she is not taking into account the fact that people will remember her support for Obama thanks to the Internet preserving her words and actions for the GOP to gleefully use against her.
    On the other hand, she may have already decided not to run and figured that it doesn’t anymore matter if she appears to support the Dimocrats in their hour of need, perhaps having decided that it may be more fun to be one of the elderly wise ones of what’s left of the party in order to rebuild it.

  5. Tony Stark, your comment is how we see things but even our reasoning does not satisfy.

    1) Hillary could woo back the white working class she won so handily in 2008. This would mean there is no need for the Obama base of white liberal kooks. Sufficient numbers of black voters would rally to Hillary as would sufficient young people, non-kook liberals, moderates, and women too.

    2) In 2008 many kooks assaulted Hillary because they said her campaign was all about the general election and not concerned with the Democratic primary base. Now Hillary appears to surrender the general election in order to forestall a non-menace in the primaries. She could avoid all of that by running as an independent of course. But in either case Youtube has a vicious memory and it will be hard to take anything back that is said in 2014. The old Nixon maxim of ‘run to your party base in the primaries and run to the center in the general elections” is no longer applicable in the Internet age.

    3) A decision not to run and yet, as you put it “be one of the elderly wise ones of what’s left of the party in order to rebuild it” is the only logic we can make of the current “strategy”.

    We can’t imagine that anyone is so daft as to think that Obama’s popularity will rise in the next two years or that his policies will help the country and the populace will learn to love ObamaCare and Ebola.

    None of this offers us a satisfactory explanation. What we have heard that makes some sense is that Hillary’s “responsibility gene” and “loyalty gene” are the determinants to what is being done. If so, it’s an example of responsibility and loyalty turned into fetishes that are destructive.

    We hope Hillary is having a wonderful birthday this October 26th on 26th street.

  6. How can you be “elderly wise one” hoping to rebuild all the while keeping company with those who chose to destroy her in 08. IMHO the SOS job was one of the poorest of her choices. Staying away from the BOOB and his ilk would have set her up much more nicely for NOW .. surely they had to know what a disaster this turd would be. Now she has her SOS record to come back to bite her on the ass along with support of all of his dumb ass policies. I agree, I don’t think she is running, otherwise she’d be trying to distance herself by just sitting out with her new grandbaby and letting the whole party take the ass kicking they SO DESERVE.

    as stated in a few threads back .. I do not recognize the current Hillary Clinton.
    I hear ya.

    Every day presents a new challenge.

    The latest example was her statement that businesses do not create jobs.

    The opposition his having a field day with that one.

    I understand the need to appeal to the base, and all that.

    But these Hennie Youngman one liners are defining her in the public mind as a member of the hard left.

    Rather than the centrist we imagined her to be in 2008.

  8. Likewise, I understand the need to raise money.

    But these repeated dalliances with Wall Street.

    Will cause Main Street to wonder

    Whose side she is really on.

    I am not talking trash.

    I understand she needs to thread the needle.

    But right now she is coming across the wrong way.

    And while it is quite true that the American People

    Have neither the attention span of a flea

    Or the judgement of a mule

    The video camera memorializes these gaffs.

    Just like the what difference does it make comment about the death of four Americans.

  9. I have to agree with Admin about what is best for HRC. I think that baby needs her Grandma very much. But she has not yet committed to that run and she is straddling that fence. One should also consider that we do not know how many requests for support she had declined.

    Nine More Days.

  10. There is a fourth possibility here, if you think outside the box.

    Thinking outside the box can get you kicked off certain blogs, as it did with me and red state.

    They think only inside the box, and are constantly wondering why they are losing.

    When I think outside the box, I go back to my friend the Wall Street banker.

    I have told you about him before, including his time at Princeton, his trecks through the secret societies like Skull and Bones, and the friends he had at that school who were the sons, and in some cases the daughters of the senior members of what we now call the 1%.

    What he learned when he befriended these people, went to their parties, dated them, argued with them in a class room was that there are roughly 100 families in this country–evenly spread between the two parties, who control the political process, and another 100 on the periphery who have influence.

    He learned that they are the ones who select the candidates and determine who will be president. And it is not just a question of the candidate but the party. Not for nothing did fat Howard Dean declare in 2008 “now is our turn to RULE”. You can interpret that as a careless choice of words by an imperious jackass if you like. But I would prefer to see it for what it is–a confirmation of the fact that presidents who appear to be elected are for the most part installed, by these very interests.

    Why am I telling you this? Because it goes to the question of whether Hillary will run or sit this one out. On the one hand, she better than anyone understands the problems the next president will face, and that alone would give any rational person pause. She also knows that public support is a fickle thing, and the media loves nothing better than to pull the wings off flies. But what if the elites I am referring to have surveyed the damage done by Obama, and his supporters in their group are getting their asses kicked by those who told him this would happen, and wondering how much of this will affect them personally, are telling her that they need to install a Republican President in 2016 to restore some semblance of public confidence.

    Now then, assume that is true. If you were Hillary, what would you do. Probably just what she is doing now. Tripping the light fantastic and basking in the glory of a successful career in public service. And where big media is concerned, she might adopt the position of Jennie and never make up her mind until February, not to run. Why run the race, why exhaust yourself as she did in 2008, when the election of Obama had already been decided in February of that year. Remember how shocked Governor Rendell was when Obama told him in February that the nominee had already been decided, it would be him, and if he went too far out on a limb for Hillary, that he would suffer a reprisal.

    If I had to guess, I would say this may be what is going on.


  11. Correction: Obama told Ed Rendell in March that the issue had been decided in February–which was not long after the first three primaries, that he would be the nominee. At that point, she was slightly behind on delegates, but the super delegates, most of whom appeared to be in her corner, had not been heard from.

    You think I am crazy. Fine. Maybe I am. But if you think this is a democracy, then by God go back to that maplite.org site, and you will see how the elites control congress.

    I have described this before, too. At the beginning of the year, major corporation through their respective lobbyists tell the heads of both parties what legislation they want passed, what public financing they require, and what policy traps they need to avoid. They pledge billions of dollars to that process, which is held in escrow and he party leaders then dole it out to individual congressmen 5 days after they voted the way the corporation wanted. The money goes into their campaign war chests. If it is a senate position, it may be a million dollars, the thought being that it is much more expensive to run a senate campaign, and the politician stays bought for 6 years. If it is a House member it may be only $50 000 based on the same rationale.

    Now then, if congressional elections are that tightly controlled by monied interests, is it really such a stretch to say what the Princeton banker said that presidents are installed not elected. His favorite saying was this: nobody becomes mayor of New York without being owned by somebody.

  12. Her best bet for 2016 should have been to talk about the state of the country and to totally separate herself from the Dem party — country before party. She is not doing that at all. In fact, she is all over the place running around without strategy — latest is awkwardly repeating Obama’s line ‘corporations didn’t build that’ which he stole from Warren. Obama and his vile crowd will go to any length to thwart her. Why would they help her in anyway? Obamacore will remain anti-Hillary because she represents to them the existential threat to Obama and his legacy. They don’t want her now, and they don’t want her in 2016 — because if things get done right, especially with only one term, she will push Obama into oblivion.

    I have no idea why she is acting like she owes these Dem fuckers anything. Start moving and gathering the people on the street to your side — everything else will follow. In fact, the same Obama people showed her that but I guess it is a bitter lesson to learn.

    On a side note, there are Obama-idiots like Maher who was spouting that she was a hawk and a centrist and BC was a moderate republican. Maher should be careful — people may say he IS a moderate republican given his latest pronouncements on Islam and Muslims.

  13. Excellent, timely article. Admin.

    Those who argue that remembering the events of 2008 is dwelling in the past, rather than looking to the future apparently don’t realize that lessons learned in the past must be considered if one is to make rational decisions about the present and the future – hence the adage “Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me”.

    The many dirty deeds of the Obama supporting Dimocrats in 2008 were bad enough to justify refusal to support that party. But, more importantly, the very nature, character, and dedication to democratic process of the individuals who supported and/or tolerated those dirty deeds must be called into question and considered in determining whether one can overlook the dirty deeds themselves. Behind those actions, that treachery; behind the race-baiting, sexism, blatant dishonesty in word and deed were the individuals who were so lacking in integrity, whose ethical and moral standards were so low, who had so little regard for this country’s political process that they willingly participated the sleazy dealings that characterized and typified Obama’s campaign. Those are not people that I care to support.

    After Watergate, I wouldn’t vote for those who were part of the wiretapping and cover-up – if any of them were still around and decided to run for office.

    After 911, I wouldn’t get on a plane full of Muslims with box cutters.

    After the ill-fated, and uncalled for Iraq war started by Bush, I would never vote for anyone who thought that war was a sterling idea.

    After watching Candy Crowley involve herself in the presidential debate between Obama and Romney, I won’t listen to or believe anything Candy says about Obama – her bias has been exposed.

    After setting my hair on fire, I would not place my head in the oven again.

    My future actions are informed, in part, by lessons learned in the past. Those who fail to look at the past before looking to the future will make poorly informed decisions.

  14. The fifth possibility is that Hillary has taken a look at the GOTV operation of the Democrat Party, the big media bias, the stupidity of the American voter, the demise of the white middle class and the surge in illegal immigration which will infect future elections and drawn an obvious conclusion. All she needs to do is win the primary and the general election will be a cake walk. The problem with that strategy however is threefold: i) first, you cannot serve the general welfare if you ride the river with people who are committed to the destruction of this nation, ii) second, you cannot be your own person because he who pays the piper calls the tune and iii) as Margaret Thatcher wisely observed, you can absorb the poverty disease and social chaos of the third world, but only up to a point, and sooner or later you run out of opm–other people’s money. Obviously, I hope that is not the explanation for this strange behavior, but neither can I rule it out. Much depends on what happens at the mid terms and how she responds from that point forward, and the go/no go decision she announces in February.

  15. End Times for the glorious big media beloved Obama.

    End times for big media too, for their betrayal of this nation.


    President Obama is about as popular on the campaign trail these days as the Ebola virus.

    Democrats flee from him. At the mere mention of his name, they betray him. Facing dejected and angry voters, Democrats play dumb and pretend they never supported him.

    Where is all your soaring rhetoric now, Mr. President? What have you done with those fake columns from your big speech in 2008 that you held in the modest venue of the Broncos’ Mile High Stadium? Where is all that hope you told us about?

    Nobody is “fired up” anymore. Nobody is “ready to go” anymore.

    Now it is: “Fed up! Ready to leave!”

    It is sad to watch the ancient faded rock star desperately search for anybody willing to associate with him.

    Finally, this week, Al Sharpton answered the sad call and let him in from the darkness.

    “The bottom line,” the dejected and bewildered president said, “is these are all folks who vote with me. They have supported my agenda in Congress.”

    Mr. Sharpton listened therapeutically, if not exactly sympathetically.

    Always able to rally unjustified pride in himself, the president then said it’s not about “my feelings being hurt.” He just wants to set the truth free, remind the world how much they all once adored him.

    “These are folks who are strong allies and supporters of me,” he said of the unrequited love.

    Take one look at the president’s record (rubber-stamped by Democrats in Congress currently on the ballot), and what you see is a monument to failure. And while that failure belongs mostly to the president, his Democratic minions in Congress cannot escape blame.

    Democrats have controlled at least half of his failure during Obama’s entire presidency. For two of those years, they controlled both chambers. And part of those two years, they held a filibuster-proof majority.

    In other words, Mr. Obama had every ounce of power at his disposal to create the utopia of his wildest dreams. But just look at what he has done:

    Economy: Economists can debate tax rates and employment figures today, but one thing is absolutely indisputably certain: “Income inequality” is higher today after six years of Obama policies than at any time during modern U.S. history.

    “By some estimates, income and wealth inequality are near their highest levels in the past hundred years, much higher than the average during that time span and probably higher than for much of American history before then,” Mr. Obama’s Fed Chairman Janet Yellen said last week.

    Somewhere Jay Gatsby is blushing.

    War: The entire premise of the Obama presidency is that the war in Iraq was a fool’s errand, and President Bush should never have gotten into it. It was the only reason Mr. Obama wrestled the Democratic nomination from Hillary Rodham Clinton, and it was one of the primary reasons he beat Republican John McCain.

    After surrendering Iraq to terrorists, Mr. Obama has launched a whole new war in Iraq at a cost of up to $22 billion annually. It is a stunning admission of total error by this president and leaves his antiwar credentials in tatters.

    Gitmo: The first order Mr. Obama signed upon entering the White House directed the closure of the U.S. detention facility at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, within a year. Today, nearly six years later, it remains open.

    Environment: Wipe clear all the voodoo and religion surrounding global warming, and there is only one goal these people seek: Jack energy prices through the roof so that turning on a light or driving to the grocery store hurts so bad that Americans surrender and become inhabitants of an unindustrialized Third World country. This is the theory behind their “war on coal.”

    In a moment of unguarded excitement speaking to a newspaper editorial board in San Francisco in 2008, Mr. Obama admitted just that. “Under my plan,” he told them, “electricity prices would necessarily skyrocket.”

    Today, gas prices have fallen below $3 a gallon, and experts predict they could fall another couple of dimes to levels not seen since before Mr. Obama took office. While this is good news for most Americans, it is a wooden stake in the heart for the voodoo global warming crowd.

    Race: Remember all the gauzy promises about a “post-partisan” and “post-racial” society America would become after electing — and re-electing — Mr. Obama.

    Perhaps it is that this president’s policies have hurt poorer blacks the most, or maybe people are just seriously frustrated and dejected after all the soaring promises that have been broken. Either way, what we have already seen in Ferguson, Missouri — a town almost entirely served by Mr. Obama’s fellow Democrats — is not the “post-racial” utopia any of us were dreaming of.

    Is it any wonder Democrats in Congress are facing one of the most punishing routs in political history?

  16. Woodward says there are alot of unaswered questions about the IRS scandal–and that if he was younger, and if your aunt had balls he would pursue them if he was younger etc.

    A lot of unanswered questions?

    Not according to Judge Reggie Walton.

    To him it is all moot.

    He has accepted the IRS position that 1) we did not do it, and ii) we promise to never do what we never did again.

    Reggie is a coward–just like John Roberts.

  17. The democratic party is now the party of Obama, and the transformation is complete. Everyone in the party and everyone in big media marches in lock step with him, is a race baiter, and only at election time do the bother to hide it and to lie about it. If you care about the country and hope for a better future, you have got to write them all off en masse. I realize that this will reward the other party which does not deserve to be rewarded and are a less lethal form of the same disease. But realistically, what choice do we have? The elites have seen to it that the only choice we have is a false choice between tweedle dee and tweedle dumb.

  18. Ahead of 2016, Immigration Activists Want Answers From Clinton
    By AMY CHOZICKOCT. 26, 2014
    CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Hillary Rodham Clinton had just finished telling the crowd that North Carolina families could count on Senator Kay Hagan when the chants of Oliver Merino — a 25-year-old whose mother, an undocumented Mexican immigrant, faces deportation — grew louder.
    He held a sign that read, “Hillary, do you stand with our immigrant families?” and shouted that his mother lives in constant fear of deportation. “I have to say that I understand immigration is an important issue, and we appreciate that,” Mrs. Clinton said. “We thank you for your advocacy.”
    “If you’re going to pick politics over our families, you should know that you can’t take this constituency for granted,” said Cristina Jimenez, managing director of United We Dream, the largest national network of young undocumented immigrants.
    The targeting of Mrs. Clinton comes amid growing disillusionment about Mr. Obama’s failure to enact immigration change and his handling of the arrival of thousands of Central American children on the United States border.

  19. Our elected officials are duty bound to stand by the laws that govern this country. If the laws need changing, there is a process by which such changes can be undertaken. When Obama promised that He would reform immigration using his trusty pen (and presumably, his phone) – no congressional approval required – he signaled his intent to (borrowing from Jimenez’s words) “pick politics over our families” – “our” meaning American. An American president’s first obligation is to Americans. This president chose to politicize the immigration issue in order to garner votes for Dims. He didn’t give a damn about the impact on America or American families – or for that matter, Hispanic families.

    It is not being xenophobic to expect that the laws of the land be upheld – especially when it comes to an issue such as immigration. But the issue of immigration must be addressed in more complex terms than ” Ya’ll come on over”. The answer is not to allow our political process to be held hostage by illegal immigrants.

  20. In the interest of PC, I should have said “legal American families”. In my head, that was implied, but obviously could be taken otherwise. Of course legal Hispanic immigrants who have achieved citizenship are Americans.

  21. Dimocrats should be glad there is an election process.

    When you have betrayed the nation as badly as they have.

    There are two ways for you to go.

    Lose the election and retire gracefully with a nice speech


    Hang on and wait to be led off to the guillotine with only a blindfold and a last cigarette to console you.

    Since most of them are atheists, a request for a priest would be superfluous.

    Of course this is all just idle chatter.

    We know neither will happen as long as we have a corrupt media in this county.

    And that will never change.

    The only remedy for that is the channel changer.

    In the information age, that is the lethalist weapon of all.

    If only the American People, who are dumb as owl shit, had the common sense required to use it.

    (Note: in a government funded Harvard conducted study it was determined that apes with channel changers were right 52% of the time, whereas with voters it was only 30% of the time, as evidenced by Obama’s approval rating after the 2008 election. This conclusion may seem disturbing to you, but to a Soros funded strategist of the B.F. Skinner persuasion and to Pavlov, it is just what they expected. Nevertheless there must be 10 more government studies just to be sure.)

  22. do you stand with our immigrant families?”
    Here is the response I would have given:

    I stand with legal families.

    Meaning those who have stood in line and waited their turn and gone through the legal process.

    Squatters are a different story.

    There must be a political remedy for the problem of trespass, and the concomitant claim of adverse possession.

    You must understand when you violate our immigration laws, you cannot bootstrap yourself into a status equivalent to those who have followed the law.

    You need to go to the end of the line.

    If we let you violate this law, what is to say you will not violate all the other ones/

    What kind of a message does this send to the third world?

    And what about the tragedy of the commons.

    If you want to move in with Zuckerberg, fine.

    But leave the rest of us alone.

  23. Some dims throwing a hissy fit 😆

    Given the Republican Party’s favorable chances of retaking the United States Senate on November 4, some left-leaning outlets are taking a harsh tone, even calling Republicans “stupid” and “insane.”

    In an article published Saturday, October 18, entitled, “Yeah, the GOP is evil and will win – but the midterms are meaningless,” Salon called the Republican Party “an all-white, anti-everything party of fear.”

    Read more at http://www.westernjournalism.com/liberals-happy-theyre-lose-senate-showing-writing/#ZVufBdjKcEIQkMLp.99

  24. I read the article speculating that Obama wants his party to lose so he can assume the position of dictator and govern by executive order.

    In the past, he has acted unilaterally.

    But he has justified this by claiming that it was necessary due to congressional gridlock.

    If the republicans do take the senate, then it will move legislation forward on the subjects he plans to act upon unilaterally.

    That is a horse of a different color.

    In that case, the prior justification vanishes.

    Because there is no congressional gridlock any longer.

    Now, it is simply a question of the constitutional framework.

    The normal battle between the two branches is suddenly transformed into a battle over the separation of powers.

    That, in turn, is a constitutional question worthy of supreme court review.

    If we had a supreme court worthy of its name.

    The Achilles heel is John Roberts.

  25. Both FOX and MSM, specifically John King (no surprise there) attempt to slam Hillary for her statement about trickle-down economics. Media Matters blog addresses the issue.


    Media Forget Context In Effort To Scandalize Hillary Clinton’s Assessment Of Trickle-Down Economics
    October 26, 2014 3:41 PM EDT ››› ELLIE SANDMEYER


  26. Saturday Night Live has not been funny in decades. The writing is wooden and at best dull. The acting is even more wooden and dull. The contrivances are so uninspired and predictable it is a wonder there is an audience for this crap at all.

    All the above is true of the latest skit about Ebola Obama. It’s not a funny skit. We display it here because it demonstrates that even in the precincts of Obama worship the gold plate is off this tin calf.

  27. Boston Globe endorses the Republican, not Martha Coakley:


    Effective activist government isn’t built on good intentions. To provide consistently good results, especially for the state’s most vulnerable and troubled residents, agencies need to focus on outcomes, learn from their errors, and preserve and replicate approaches that succeed. Baker, a former health care executive, has made a career of doing just that. During this campaign, he has focused principally on making state government work better. The emphasis is warranted. And in that spirit, the Globe endorses Charlie Baker for governor.

    Baker splits from the national Republican Party on social issues such as abortion rights and same-sex marriage. The commitment he expresses to avoid raising taxes shouldn’t be mistaken for an allergy to the public sector; Baker spent the formative years of his career deep in the weeds of government — first as secretary of health and human services under Governor William Weld and then secretary of administration and finance under Weld and Governor Paul Cellucci. In those years, he learned how agencies work (or don’t) and how budgets are balanced (or not).

    Subsequently, Baker led the turnaround of the once-troubled Harvard Pilgrim Health Care. It wasn’t a one-man operation. It involved some help from state officials, and some employees lost their jobs. But the overall outcome was beneficial: Despite difficult circumstances, an insurer that was near financial ruin became known as a top performer in its industry. The pitfalls that lurk in state government won’t be so readily fixed by a new CEO’s ministrations, but Baker’s guiding focus on customer outcomes was the right one — and hints at how he would handle the governor’s job.

  28. Coakley could becme the first Democrat to manage to lose 2 statewide races in a row in the most liberal state of the USA……pretty stunning job…..

  29. Saturday Night Live has not been funny in decades. The writing is wooden and at best dull. The acting is even more wooden and dull. The contrivances are so uninspired and predictable it is a wonder there is an audience for this crap at all.
    Spot on.

    And you could say the same thing about John Stewart and Bill “schnauzer” Maher.

    I wonder whether Stewart takes that canned audience laughter tape to be with him, along with his trusty dog Fido.

  30. So what Hillary meant when she said business do not create jobs, was not that businesses do not create jobs, but that trickle down economics does not distribute the spoils of capitalism equitably.

    To bad she did not say that.

    What she did say virtually identical to Obama’s slap in the face to entrepreneurs, when he tried to tell them that they did not build the businesses they put their own capital at risk to start, and their labor plus ingenuity to work on so they could grow, prosper and hire employees, while receiving a fair return on investment.

    What the big media beloved messiah needs to understand is that the crony capitalism he endorses is the latest greatest iteration of the colonial system he pretends to detest. It creates a society of aristocrats, slaves and no middle class. But what does the messiah care, as long as he and his big media cronies are part of the aristocrat cabal.

  31. How not to gloss over a freudian slip….by keeping it alive


    SC Democratic Challenger Apologizes for Calling Nikki Haley a ‘Whore’

    South Carolina’s Democratic candidate for governor Vincent Sheheen has apologized if anyone thinks he purposely meant to call incumbent Republican Gov. Nikki Haley a “whore” during a stump speech.

    As we reported last week, during a Thursday rally in Florence, S.C., Sheheen implored voters to help him “escort whore out the door.” He quickly re-enunciated the line as “We are going to escort her out the door,” and then laughed with the crowd in what seemed to be acknowledgement of the verbal flub.

    The South Carolina Democratic Party pre-empted any controversy surrounding the clip by releasing a statement pinning the gaffe on the candidate’s thick accent, along with a suggestion that the people who sent around the clip were generating a “fabricated controversy to distract from the fact that a sitting governor is stuck in the low 40s just days before the election.”

  32. I received the following email from NUMBERSUSA today. That organization supports lawful immigration and opposes illegal immigration.

    Everyone’s asking us if President Obama really can get away with it. Thanks to our members, he couldn’t get a bill passed to import or amnesty 33 million immigrants.

    But the government is seeking bids to print 34 million new green cards and work permits, anyway.

    We’re going to keep up the fight, America! And we need your help!

    If Obama orders an executive amnesty, it will be illegal and unconstitutional… and a huge setback for the American people.

    The good news is that there are several ways we’re working to stop this unlawful action. To increase our chances of winning, we have to maximize every strategy at our disposal. None of them is cheap.

    Persuade Congress to prohibit funding. The president and Congress must pass spending bills, so we will push Congress to support an amendment to such a bill to defund an amnesty.

    Appeal to Obama’s desire for a legacy. Long before the new flood of immigrants can vote, an amnesty will have ruinous effects on American jobs and wages. We will do all possible to help him understand this.

    The courts could prohibit any action the president makes without the consent of Congress. We’re very confident the law is plainly on our side. Unfortunately, we can’t rely solely only on this, because the courts often look to Congress to remedy such matters. We are financially backing the ICE agents’ lawsuit in the courts, as you’ve heard before.

    All this will take money. We don’t have the billions being spent to promote amnesty, but we do need each of our supporters to give what they can.

    I know that many of you are focused on the elections, right now. But we can’t wait until the elections are over. We need to lay the groundwork for victory now. Because it won’t matter who wins elections, if the government decides it can do whatever it wants anyway

  33. Seamus McCaffery, a former Philadelphia police officer elected in 2007 to PA’s highest court, is retiring today, one week after four of his fellow justices voted to suspend him from the bench. McCaffery, 64, is a Democrat who became ensnared in a porn scandal at the state Attorney General’s office leading to the resignations of four former top deputies to Gov. Corbett.

  34. Cory Booker will likely be re-elected. His poll numbers are above 50% and once again in double digits against his opponent. Hooray for Cory Booker!

    On the other hand, those pesky subpoena’s won’t block his reelection due to the color of his skin. But, like all recent mayors of Newark, Cory Booker might go to jail on his way to claim his Senate seat:

    The water agency, known as the Newark Conservation and Development Corp., managed Newark’s sewer and water systems. According to its bylaws, its board is made up of some members of the Newark Municipal Council, up to eight mayoral appointees and the mayor, who doesn’t have a decision-making role.

    When asked about the water agency during the debate Friday, Mr. Booker said his administration had turned over evidence to authorities “moments” after they discovered problems there. A campaign spokeswoman said Mr. Booker appointed some but not all of the board members, didn’t attend the meetings and didn’t have direct involvement in the organization’s affairs. [snip]

    His administration dissolved the agency last year after the state comptroller opened a probe. That investigation found alleged abuse including $200,000 in checks written by its ex-director to herself and no-bid contracts awarded to her associates. Her lawyer said her decisions were authorized by her superiors.

  35. A little more about Cory Booker from the Obama Dimocrat publication called DailyBeast:


    The Ugly Truth About Cory Booker, New Jersey’s Golden Boy

    Corruption scandals. Skyrocketing crime. Abandoned allies. There are reasons why New Jersey is lukewarm about its own Sen. Cory Booker—even while the rest of the country swoons. [snip]

    The alleged FBI and U.S. Attorney investigations into the Newark Watershed may have something to do with that. Months after he first entered the Senate, the New Jersey comptroller alleged that under Booker’s watch—or, more likely, because he was not watching—corruption ran rampant at a publicly funded water-treatment and reservoir-management agency, where Booker’s former law partner served as counsel. And speaking of his former law career: Despite having resigned from his law firm once entering the mayor’s office, Booker received annual payments until 2011, during which time the firm was profiting handsomely off of Brick City. That would be the Brick City that Booker professed to love with the fire of a thousand suns, but did little to fundamentally change. Murder, violent crime, unemployment, and taxes all rose dramatically under his stewardship. [snip]

    But much like how giving change to panhandlers will not solve poverty, Booker’s good deeds were not fundamentally changing Newark. Despite ushering in hundreds of millions of dollars in philanthropic donations to the city, and commissioning cosmetic surgery on public parks, Newark seemed no better off under Booker than it had been under James. Having vowed to strengthen the police department, he instead cut it by 13 percent to help balance the city’s budget. Homicides and violent crime spiked dramatically. Unemployment rose and child poverty increased 32 percent. And all of this came at a price of a 20 percent tax hike for the city’s residents. [snip]

    All the while, from 2006 to 2011, Booker was still receiving annual payments, which totaled close to $700,000, from his former law firm—Trenk, DiPasquale, Webster—from which he had resigned once elected mayor to avoid “the appearance of impropriety.” Booker’s campaign spokeswoman, Silvia Alvarez, told me: “He was paid out by the firm as part of his separation agreement for work he performed before he became mayor.” OK, sure, but while Booker was profiting from the firm, they were profiting from Newark: over $2 million in work for Newark’s Housing Authority, the Watershed Conservation Development Corporation, and a wastewater agency. “That’s almost like Sharpe James-type shit,” one New Jersey Democratic operative offered. [snip]

    Meanwhile, it looked as though Booker’s record in Newark might be catching up with him. As mayor, he presided over and strengthened the Newark Watershed Conservation Development Corporation—a publicly funded entity that managed the city’s reservoirs and treated water for its residents. Pretty boring stuff. But a state audit by the comptroller’s office found that the agency’s director, Linda Watkins-Brashear, was a donor and close ally of Booker’s, was using the Watershed like her own personal bank account—paying herself $1.98 million over seven years, when her salary came to just $1.16 million. The also doled out millions in no-bid contracts to her friends and husband. Further, Booker’s former law partner, Elnardo Webster, had been acting as the Watershed’s counsel—and his firm had profited $212,318. “He had nothing to do with the business the firm conducted with the Watershed,” Booker’s spokeswoman, Silvia Alvarez, told me.

    Not quite Chinatown, but in a city where police were being fired by the dozens, millions of taxpayer dollars lost due to a lack of oversight is no small mistake. Which is not to say that blame for the corruption should be placed solely at Booker’s feet—but the the comptroller’s office noted in their report that the mayor did not attend a single meeting regarding the agency. He instead sent a business administrator in his place, and then when the administrator resigned, in 2010, Booker never replaced them. He had no time to go to the meetings, he said. Never mind that a dearth of free time never seemed to get in the way of a commencement address, or a talk-show appearance, or a social-media stunt.

    According to reports by The Star-Ledger and New York Post, the Watershed is being investigated by both the U.S. Attorney and the FBI. “The senator has not been contacted by the authorities,” Alvarez said, adding that he is only aware of the investigations “now, because it has been reported in the press.” In a recent interview with NJTV, Booker called the Watershed, “one of the big policy losses that I had in Newark.” [snip]

    “He’s the hardest working senator there,” Donna Streeter, a middle-aged woman from New Brunswick tells me. She has brought her two teenaged children with her to see the man she says inspired her to care about politics. Streeter thinks Booker should challenge Hillary Clinton for the Democratic nomination in 2016. “I think he’s ready. He’s qualified,” she says, slightly out of breath.

    GOP Targets More House Seats
    Republican Money Flows to Races Now Seen as in Play

    In a late move to bolster their advantage, Republicans and their allies are investing in additional House races that they now see as in play, a sign that the political climate is tilting toward the GOP ahead of next week’s elections.

    The last-minute maneuvering has the potential, if races break their way, to bring Republicans closer to the 12-seat gain needed to match the party’s post-World War II record of holding 246 House seats. Democrats, aware of the headwind against them, have withdrawn money recently from some GOP-held districts and redirected it largely to endangered incumbents in an effort to limit GOP gains.

    “The national numbers have been poor for Democrats for months, but now Republicans are finding potential opportunities in places where previously they didn’t think they had much of a chance,” said Nathan Gonzales of the nonpartisan Rothenberg Political Report.

    The Republican entrance into additional districts—in Iowa, Nevada and elsewhere—adds to evidence that voters are making a late turn away from the Democratic party. A Wall Street Journal/NBC News/Annenberg survey released Sunday found Republicans with a four-point lead among registered voters on which party should control Congress, with 46% favoring the GOP and 42% preferring Democratic control.

    Among likely voters, the GOP held an 11-point advantage. In both measures, the GOP lead was larger than in the prior week’s survey.

    Coming amid Ebola fears and the U.S. war on Islamic State terrorists, the latest survey found that recent events had taken a toll on both parties but had hurt Democrats more, with 53% saying recent events made them feel less favorable toward Democrats, compared to 40% toward Republicans. [snip]

    Democrats are finding themselves increasingly on defense in blue states and congressional districts President Obama won,” said Rep. Greg Walden of Oregon, chairman of the House Republicans’ campaign arm. [snip]

    Republicans see brightening prospects in a small crop of additional districts previously considered somewhat safer for Democrats.

    In Iowa, Republicans last week put $400,000 into the race for the open seat now held by Rep. Bruce Braley, the Democratic Senate candidate, and $900,000 to try to unseat a neighboring Iowa Democrat, Rep. Dave Loebsack. It was the first investment by the party in either race.

    Republicans are optimistic that the party’s Senate candidate, Joni Ernst, could help carry GOP candidates further down the ticket, a spokesman with the House GOP’s campaign arm said. Polls show Ms. Ernst leading Mr. Braley by an average of a few percentage points.

    Republicans in late September started to put money—now totaling more than $1 million—in a Texas district to bolster GOP challenger Will Hurd’s effort to oust Democratic Rep. Pete Gallego. And in Nevada, Republican and conservative groups are stepping in to help GOP state Assemblyman Cresent Hardy in his race against Democratic Rep. Steven Horsford.

    The House GOP campaign arm made its first investment in the district, putting in about $100,000. Crossroads GPS, a sister organization to the conservative super PAC American Crossroads, last week spent $829,000 in the district, airing an ad that sought to tie Mr. Horsford’s voting record to President Barack Obama, who handily won the district in 2012 with 54% of the vote.

    Andrew Wasielewski, 48, a registered Republican who voted for Mr. Obama twice, said he had backed the Republican candidate, Mr. Hardy, in early voting in Las Vegas, because of his disappointment with the president, particularly his guidance of the military.

    I don’t think that the president is doing that good of a job, even though I voted for him…It’s a management issue,” Mr. Wasielewski said.

    the rest of the country . . .


    over Corey Booker????????

    oh, I get it

    the rest of the country

    that has been living in a cave

    in Afghanistan with no television

    and is still in love with Obama

    which is all of eight people

    trust me.

    the first reaction of the rest of the country

    will be—who the fuck is Corey Booker

    and the second reaction will be

    oh he is black, articulate, ivy league and tied to wall street

    fool me once (i.e. Obama)

    shame on you

    fool me twice

    ain’t gonna happen

    give me a fucking break

  38. Goddamnit–it gets down to brands, and the obama brand is not just stale, it is kaput. Just like brand bush–the marlborough man who preceded it.

    Have the elites concluded that all they need is a new brand and the public does not care whether the brand bearer can handle the job

    Yes, I am sure, that is it.

    They know what H.L. Menken said is true–every word of it

    Nobody ever went broke underestimating the intelligence of the American People

    Yes, I saw the article.

    We have a very interesting dynamic now.

    A strong repudiation of Obama—according to the polls.

    But if the vote tally turns out different—part of me hopes it does


    Because then it will shine the kleig lights on the rampant cheating by dimocrats.

    It is the only way the counry will ever wake up.

    Subtlety is lost of the average vote, particularly the educated one.

    But a counter intuitive result like that would hit them between the eyes like a two by four

    And it would show that this is not a democracy, which is the fig leaf the elites are hiding behind.

    The first line of defense will be the superior ground game

    But it will put the dimocrats and RINos in the same position as General Navarre at Diem ben phu. (sp)

    I would love to watch that gotterdamerung.

    Boston Globe endorses the Republican, not Martha Coakley


    Those bastards–the Boston Globe are owned by the New York Times–and they lean hard left.

    The Boston Herald Herald is the Republican newspaper.

    Boston has a habit of electing mayors while they are in jail, and there is no evidence that the rest of the common wealth is really that much better.

    Since papers like this do not make decisions based on what is good for the county, I can only wonder what Martha did to piss them off.

    One thing you can be sure of however: the proffered justification is not the real one.

    A left wing newspaper does not endorse a republican candidate for the good of the state.

    They were all in for Obama, twice, notwithstanding how unqualified he was in 2008, and how dismal his track record was in 2012.

  41. I don’t think that the president is doing that good of a job,
    I don’t think the captain of the Titanic was that good of a navigator.


    Other than that Mrs. Lincoln . . . how was the play?

    Big media will call him a racist, but at least he spoke his mind.

  42. Andrew Cuomo is not presidential.

    He is too much of a ping pong ball.

    Initially, he says no travel ban.

    Then reality hits him in the face, as Dr. Carlson brings back Ebola, rides the subways and goes bowling.

    He institutes a travel ban.

    Then the fucking NYT comes out and announces that under withering political pressure from the White House, and their hero Obama squeezing Andy’s balls til they turn blue, viola, he recants on the ban, and puts the people of his state at risk.


    The elites want someone they can control in the White House.

    But not the sort of pussy he is.

    Compare and contrast his Republican counterpart in the neighboring state of New Jersey.

    He instituted the ban and kept it because protecting the people of his state was more important to him than politics.

    Andy could learn something from this counter example.

    But he is too dumb to do that.

  43. New kind of Democrat just popped up in PA via a debate. Andy Ostrowski challenging Lou Barletta R-10.
    Andy is for everything from the Bill of rights to social justice. And he played the race card twice.
    Heaven help us.



    (snip–the conclusion)

    The real problem is that the CDC, WHO, Health and Human Services, and the OBAMA WHITE HOUSE have the American People ample reason to NOT TRUST their assurances with respect to EBOLA. For example:

    1. First, they said the CHANCE of a single Ebola case in the United States was REMOTE.–not true.

    2. Second, they said AIRPORT SCREENING would catch anyone sick planning to enter–not true.

    3. Third, they said HOSPITALS WERE PREPARED to handle Ebola cases.–not true

    4. Fourth, they said DOCTORS AND NURSES would be protected.—not true

    5. Fifth, they said SELF QUARANTINES by sick individuals would prevent new cases—not true.

    6. Sixth, they claim that a TRAVEL BAN would not protect the American people–which is also not true, and is belied by the actions of other nations in Africa which have protected themselves against Ebola by instituting such bans.

    7. Seventh, they claim that the administration is COODINATING successfully with state and local authorities—which is not true. As of this morning New Jersey, Florida and Illinois have instituted such bans in violation of what the great Obama hath decreed.

    8. Eighth, they refuse to acknowledge the risk which OPEN BORDER position of Obama creates, as noted by the Commanding General of the Central Command.

    This patch work mess is what happens when the federal government (meaning Obama) demonstrates a persistent record of INCOMPETENCE AND INCREDIBILITY.

    (Personal observation: It made me sick to watch that little schlameel Ernst try to shift the focus from this pattern of failure by his boss to the peripheral issue of how this whiny volunteer was treated by the airport security personnel and ultimately the governor of New Jersey–who is a Republican. At most that is a peripheral issue, and ultimately it points right back to the big media beloved messiah, who failed to anticipate and prepare for this, and every other contingency created by this crisis. There should be a protocol to deal with this issue in a humane way, but again that is Obama’s fault–his dereliction of duty.

    Under the circumstances, it is unseemly and wrong to criticize governors for using even blunt tools to protect the public–the American People who Obama cares nothing for or about.

  45. A black civil rights leader blows the whistle on Messiah Obama

    As the big media beloved messiah stands poised to decimate the black community

    With his unlawful legalization of 34 million illegal aliens

    Who will displace black workers, increase unemployment in their community and drive down wages

    But Obama and is party are determined to do this

    They want those Hispanic votes–ergo nothing else matters

    And every Hispanic favors illegal immigration because they want to compete against low wage workers as well.

    Personally, this civil rights leader needs to take this matter up with Zuckerberg as well.

    And maybe dirty al sharpton.

    Will this do any good?

    Probably not.

    There are no virgins in this whorehouse.

    The RNC has cautioned Brown and others not to politicize the issue.

    Because they have every intention of doing the same thing—for their donors.

    Which is about what you would expect from the uniparty.

    But it is the spectacle of the first black president supported by over 90% of blacks destroying the black community– that is the real story here.

    Which is what some of us have been saying all along

    But nobody in power wants to leesen–because they do not care about the country and are too busy lining their own pockets.



    A top civil rights advocate is warning President Obama that extending executive amnesty to millions of illegal aliens will deeply harm black workers.

    Peter Kirsanow, as U.S. Civil Rights Commissioner, says in a Oct. 27 letter to Obama and the Congressional Black Caucus that U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services’ recently revealed preparations for a huge ID “surge” extended his alarm over what the president has planned.

    “Granting work authorization to millions of illegal immigrants will devastate the black community, which is already struggling in the wake of the recession that began in 2007 and the subsequent years of malaise,” he explained.

    “Illegal immigration has a disparate impact on African-American men because these men are disproportionately represented in the low-skilled labor force,” Kirsanow added.

    Noting that he writing as a single member of U.S. Commission on Civil Rights and not on behalf of the body, Kirsanow argued in a lengthy letter to Obama and Rep. Marcia Fudge (D-OH), the chairwoman of the Congressional Black Caucus, that expected executive actions would have negative effects on low skilled workers, particularly African Americans, and higher skilled tech workers.

    “My concerns center around the effect such grant of legal status will have on two subsets of American workers: low-skilled workers, particularly low-skilled black workers, and high- skilled STEM workers.”

    Kirsanow has raised concerns about the deleterious effects of amnesty and increases in low skilled immigration will have on African Americans in the past but wrote that the the recent revelation that the government is seeking supplies for up to 34 million green cards and work permits has “renewed” those concerns.

    In his missive the Civil Rights Commissioner recalled a briefing the Commission held in 2008 in which all the diverse range of witnesses noted that illegal immigration has had a negative impact on African American men because they “are disproportionately represented in the low-skilled labor force” in which illegal immigrants compete. He further noted that executive amnesty would also cause such harm.

    “The proposed executive order will also have a negative effect on young African-Americans at the outset of their working lives. Young, low-skilled workers are facing enormous difficulties in this economy,” Kirsanow wrote.

    “Since 1986, we have seen that granting legal status to illegal immigrants, or even mere rumors that legal status will be granted, increases illegal immigration. Likewise, the evidence indicates that the flood of illegal immigrants across our southern border is mostly attributable to your directive granting temporary legal status to people allegedly brought to the United States as children. This is unsurprising. When you incentivize bad behavior, you get more of it,” he wrote.

    Kirsanow further questioned the need for more STEM workers, given that wages for such workers has not increased in the face of an apparent shortage and argues that American STEM students are as capable as foreign students.

    “Finally, I would like to say a few words about the supposed need for an increased number of high-tech visas. There is little evidence, other than the protestations of tech titans and politicians, that there is a shortage of STEM workers in the United States. Statistics suggest otherwise,” he wrote.

    (note: the letter he wrote to the big media beloved messiah is incorporated in the link)

    Remember what I said about the polls.

    Pollsters are over correcting for the mistakes made in 2008.

    In any event, the polls are moving in the right direction.

    For reasons which have noting to do with the polls, I share your skepticism.

    Simply put, the problem is on the ground–not in the polls or the airways.

    I worry about three things:

    1. how many of those polled vote?

    2. how many who do vote are legitimate voters.

    3. who counts the votes

    Like I say, it you want to worry about something, worry about that.

    Ebola can survive on surfaces for almost TWO MONTHS: Tests reveal certain strains survive for weeks when stored at low temperatures

    Research claims certain strains of Ebola can remain on surfaces for 50 days
    It survived the longest on glass surfaces stored at 4° (39°F)
    Centres for Disease Control and Prevention claims Ebola typically lives on a ‘dry’ surface for hours – including doorknobs and tables
    But when stored in moist conditions such in mucus, this is extended
    Survival time depends on the surface, and the room temperature
    Virus can be killed using household bleach and people must come into direct contact with the sample to risk infection

    The number of confirmed Ebola cases passed the 10,000 mark over the weekend, despite efforts to curb its spread.

    And while the disease typically dies on surfaces within hours, research has discovered it can survive for more than seven weeks under certain conditions.

    During tests, the UK’s Defence Science and Technology Laboratory (DSTL) found that the Zaire strain will live on samples stored on glass at low temperatures for as long as 50 days.

    Yes. There is more to this Ebola business than Obama and his handlers are willing to admit.

    Notwithstanding my skepticism (supra), I think this will be the defining issue in the election.

    Meanwhile Obama is doing everything he can–lying, just like he lied through his teeth about Benghazi on the eve of the 2012 election.

  51. I don’t know how accurate Puff Ho’s election polling has proven to be in the past, but after seeing an article about effective polling at Public Policy.Com, which identified Real Clear Politics and Huffington Post as among the most effective, I checked out HP, one of the staunchest Obama public relations publications in 2008 and 2012.

    Their most recent figures indicate that the Dims have a 39% chance of retaining senate control, while the GOP has a 61% chance of taking control of the senate
    I often use a weather analogy to operationalize predictions based on percentages, as it helps my right brained, non-math self to see the situation more clearly.

    If the weather people give a 39% chance of rain in my area – it may or may not rain. No big deal.
    If the prediction is 61%, take an umbrella and wear a raincoat. It’s gonna rain.

    And in the wake of flu season, this is what should give us pause. Lets say that the flu virus does not give the Ebola virus its airborne ability. What if the Ebola virus gives the flu virus some of its characteristics? What if the flu virus gets some ‘super powers’ when it comes in contact with a long living Ebola strain?

    A failure of imagination.

  53. Obama is not protecting the American People from ISIS, Ebola, Criminal Aliens.

    The O’Reilly editorial below explains.

    But before you agree keep one thing in mind or big media will come after you.

    Obama is black, O’Reilly is white, ergo anything O’Reilly says about Obama which is less than worshipful is ipso facto racist.

    That is where this country is today, helpless and ready to vote for Obama’s policies at the polls.

    Paralyzed as it were by the false charge of racism.

    While big media and race hustlers make a market in it.

    Of course, as the infinitely wise American voter is concerned–it is all just politics and follow the money.

    So wise, so all knowing, they are.

    Those 70 percenters (who supported Obama in 2008)

    And cannot look themselves in the mirror today and say man did I fuck up.

    For those who do not wilt on the vine when the left screams racist, there is this:


    Finally, seeing the video of the ax wielding muslim terrorist whom the politically correct left admonish us to call a lone wolf

    Obama will be impressed with the way he swings the axe–good form, nice transition, delayed release, everything Obama has been practicing on the golf course.

    Perhaps the two can play a round together at Congressional.

    If he shares a golf cart with Soros lieutenant Wolf, and with Boehner, then why not this Muslim wielder of the axe?

    What a fine photo op that would be.

  54. The Rock, here is a video of the article you posted last night for which I am in debt to you for posting.

    Sharyl is about to blow the lid off of big media and show in detail how they have systematically, intentionally, and with malice aforethought misled the American People, and how by doing so they have effectively disenfranchised them.

    Her new book, which will be out next week, will confirm the corruption which I have been railing about ever since 208.

    It is reasonable to assume that CBS and the rest of them are bracing for the public blow back which they cannot censor because of FOX.

    True to form, the same people who are only too happy to stick a microphone in the faces of innocent victims, to incite riots in places like Ferguson, to plant evidence, to invent racial incidents, to lie for Obama, and to shut down investigative journalism have one reply to her book: No comment.


  55. From Gibbs to Carney to Ernst these Obama Press Secretaries have been complete buffoons.

    And I say this knowing that the job of any press secretary is to lie for the administration.

    But these jokers cannot tell even a credible lie–its all non sequiturs, evasion and good old fashioned stupidity.

    The only reason they get by with it is because 90% of the Washington press corps are dullards.

    But I will say this much for Ernst.

    When Obama appointed that hump, he managed to hit rock bottom.

  56. Kay Hagen has no resume to speak of. She is as much of an empty suit as her hero Obama. But there is one thing that she does have going for her. If you look at her face, and study the pointed chin, the narrow set eyes, and the ice cold demeanor, you will see that she is a dead ringer for someone every school child is familiar with, and has nightmares about. And that, I would have to say, is the secret of her success. It is all so . . . subliminal.


  57. Thanks, admin, for another semi-brilliant essay.

    Why “semi”?

    Because once again it’s all about how right we have been for years, and you make us wait for the last five lines (plus the quote from The Hill that I posted here three days ago) for a nebulous hint of how this may be a good birthday gift for HRC — being right six and seven years ago.

    Otherwise, nothing about 2015-16 and no concern at all about 2017-21.

    Then you end with, “Will Hillary sit back and enjoy this birthday gift? We hope so.“

    HRC is not a “sit back” type of person any more than her husband is. Only people who live in an ivory tower of cynicism can afford to sit back with the popcorn and revel in the glories of their past while their friends go down the drain. HRC is not that smug.

    Or maybe it’s just sheer ignorance of how politics works? No, I can’t believe that.

    So, any hope (where did you get that word?) that HRC will sit back and enjoy as her friends and 2008 supporters (like Grimes) are defeated this year is just pissing into the wind.

    As if to emphasize this obvious fact, HRC spent her 67th birthday, as a new grandma, campaigning for Hagan & Co. in North Carolina.

    Oh, I sent her a card all right, along with $50 for “Too small to fail” and a note saying that’s all I could afford because I was contributing another $1000 to the Grimes campaign (plus the other seven campaigns). The greater gift, to my mind, is to understand why she is doing what she is at this moment, and helping her out.

    Personally, I don’t need any preaching about the value of history lessons, nor does HRC or WJC. I guess I’ve been sabotaged, or maybe I’m as stupid as you think they are.

  58. dot48 October 26, 2014 at 7:13 pm

    … I do not recognize the current Hillary Clinton. Was I fooled or has she actually changed into what your [admin’s] topic encompasses?

    If you took HRC to be cast in stone as you saw her in 2008, then you were fooled.

    If that were the case — same person as in 2008 — I would be deeply disappointed, because only a boob remains the same. Witness Obama: What we said about him six years ago remains true today.

    Not so for HRC.

    I don’t see why you, Tony Stark and admin, and quite a few others here, stand in bewilderment as HRC does not take the trouble to distance herself from Obama and his Dims. They are bound for the dustbin of history.

    She, on the other hand, is her own person and does not define herself negatively (or positively) with regard to anyone in particular — not even with her husband. She says what she thinks, and if that happens to coincide with Obama’s or Dimocratic politics, so be it. I’m thinking particularly of the minimum wage issue here, and Obamacare. Particularly on this latter issue, she’s bucking the tide. If you don’t recognize HRC in that, then you never knew her at all.

  59. Three or so for the record.
    4:17 PM. Cory Booker sitting pretty electionwise. UGH. What is best explanation? Dumb as owl shit or fraudulent as Capone?
    Correction to 8:01 PM: Barletta is PA-11.

    Another UGH.
    Former President Clinton rallies voters for Democrat Wolf in Western Pa. 10/27/14.
    I happened upon a rebroadcast of WJC speaking at this & clicked away from it as quickly as I would have for Obama. Perhaps this is Clintons’ goal. Who knows.

    Ebola – lots to learn but Obama will in typical fashion scoot past the real consequences.

    Someone is criticizing Australia for limiting travel to limit the scourge. Am certain you recall Candidate Obama’s identification of a silly season. Well now is the silliest of all but deep depression, rather than laughter, is what rules.

    Philly news early. Charter school there, after some warning that it would, has closed. In a list of problems noticed by authorities was enrollment of too many children. Doubt anyone there would think to connect that with open border.

  60. pm317 October 26, 2014 at 9:24 pm

    Her best bet for 2016 should have been to talk about the state of the country and to totally separate herself from the Dem party — country before party. She is not doing that at all.

    I concur with your first sentence here: Her 2016 campaign should take up a “Country First” type of slogan akin to McCain’s. When the 2016 campaign gets under way, we will see if she makes a determined effort to separate herself from the Democratic party. For various reasons, I bet she won’t.

    But that bet is irrelevant now because this is not 2016 and she is not campaigning for the presidency. She’s not fighting for herself but for her friends in Senatorial, House and gubernatorial races. She has to campaign on their character and on their issues.

  61. Apparently Christie caved to Obama. Again. This time on the quarantine.

    Let us hope he has enough common sense to not run for the presidency.

    He is a beached whale now.

    Did not stand up for the people of his state.

    But the news is not all bad.

    This quote should help cheer us up:

    Clare Luce put is another way.

    In this world, she said, there are two kinds of people — optimists and pessimists.

    “The pessimists are better informed.”


  62. freespirit October 26, 2014 at 11:29 pm

    …. Those who argue that remembering the events of 2008 is dwelling in the past, rather than looking to the future, apparently don’t realize that lessons learned in the past must be considered if one is to make rational decisions about the present and the future,

    As I petulantly pointed out to admin above, I don’t need any preaching about the value of historical lessons. Nor, might I add, does HRC or her husband.

    History was my chosen field of study and the plodding process of digesting its lessons has served me well all my life — including in matters far afield from politics, such as the sciences, business strategies, marriage and other personal relationships, and so forth. In the end, it’s an attitude and a process more than an accumulation of facts and resulting lessons.

    The good that comes from digesting history’s lessons is that you can take a more mature look at the current situation, and then move on, planning more intelligently for a better future.

    I’m sure you agree with all that — I don’t mean to preach to you either; but you still insist on dwelling in the past: Neither you nor admin nor anybody else seems to be concerned about what happens after Nov 4.


    I’ll change the subject, because there is something else that should be learned while studying history, and nobody here seems to be concerned with that either:

    This other thing you learn is: It is a huge mistake to overlook the big picture and become obsessed with one aspect, one event, one person, one philosophy and so forth.

    This is what has been happening here at H44 since 2008. We are obsessed with Obama and his dwindling band of supporters. We are obsessed with teaching them, and him, the narrow lesson we have learned.

    The result is that we don’t care what happens to the country if Congress goes all-Republican, even though the Republicans have clearly shown that they don’t care about the country any more than Obama does. The Republicans have no substance: There is even a hot debate going on in the Republican party to determine better, more coherent ideologies that will appeal to a broader electorate, especially minorities. In the meantime, as that debate goes on, all they care about is obstructing Obama’s agenda — which, I might add, is not much different from the agenda HRC has always run on. So here, we are cheering on the Republicans and rewarding them so they can carry on their dysfunctional practices through 2015 and 2016, and even until 2020, all for the glory of saying “I told you so!”

    Furthermore, we interpret and judge every deed and word of HRC in light of this same narrow lesson of history. Now, nothing she does is to any avail unless it jibes with our hatred of Obama and his shriveling base.

    In our eyes, for example, the fact that HRC supports the PPACA is a stupid move not because the PPACA has criticizable components or missing elements, but because it is associated with Obama and was passed by the “Dimocratic” Congress.

    Little does it matter to us what she says specifically about Obamacare; our only concern is that she should go with the polls, in this and other matters, for her own personal benefit.

    I know for certain that she will not do this. She is a woman of firm convictions, as John McCain noted and as is obvious from watching her over the last 20+ years. In 2014, she is campaigning with Democrats on an Obamacare plank, among other planks that are quite similar to Obama’s agenda, and when her 2016 campaign begins, she will continue to campaign on those planks.

    That is what leadership is all about in a democracy: going to the people and convincing them to follow you in matters where they might not necessarily agree at first.

  63. foxyladi14 October 28, 2014 at 6:18 am

    Will this election change anything??

    Thanks for the link to the article. Of course, it’s only one person’s opinion, but it happens to be mine.

    Except the author doesn’t consider one possibility: An all-Republican Congress may impeach Obama and even get him removed from office. That would change a thing or two: We’d have Biden, for example! Biden’s ratings would be better than Obama’s but not enough to win 2016, so next president would be a Republican, and we’d have 2001-2007 all over again.

  64. jesweezy:

    “I don’t need any preaching about the value of historical lessons.”



    I don’t mean to preach to you either; but you still insist on dwelling in the past.

    And yet, you continue to do so.

    I am not willing to ignore the travesties of the past. You assert that my unwillingness to do so is “dwelling in the past”, “overlooking the big picture”. I disagree. Perhaps I’m overlooking the big picture as YOU see it. For me, the big picture is not about the difficulties Hillary might fact with a Republican majority in both houses, if she became president. That’s your big picture. The big picture to me is about the potential longer term damage to democracy and to this country if we place so little value on free elections and democratic process that we fail to hold to account the party that perpetrated the 2008 assault on democracy. The big picture is about the risk to democracy If we fail to take a stand against Obama’s usurpation of the power of the legislative branch of this government, as he functions as both the legislative and executive branches. The big picture is about the damage done by Obama and the Dims – damage that will never fully be repaired. The big picture is about the ongoing abuse of power by the media, as they continue to manipulate the facts in order to influence election outcomes.

    If Hillary runs and is elected president, and if the Republicans hold control of both houses of congress, she may face some challenges. But, anyone who runs for president must be prepared for that possibility. There are no guarantees in that regard. I personally, feel she would be more than equal to that challenge. If she’s not, then she doesn’t need to run.

    This is my last response to your comments regarding this, Jes. It’s getting redundant. You make a well articulated argument about how your big picture, your goals can be best supported. The problem is, not everyone sees the same big picture as you do, nor shares your goals. You consider my view point “obsessive” and narrow. I won’t deny being somewhat “obsessed”. I am very concerned about the long term effects of the 2008 travesty which paved the way for the subsequent selection of an incompetent president who holds little esteem for or loyalty to the country over which he was selected to preside. I’m damned concerned.

    That’s my “big picture”.

  67. Jes–

    You say we dwell on the past.

    You, on the other hand, act as though the past six years never happened.

    If you were living over here now, you would have a better sense of what we are talking about.

    The reason the past is important is because it was the beginning of the end of the constitutional order.

    In the face of a determined attack on this nation, from withing, all the protective systems failed.

    There was institutional failure, and there was individual failure writ large.

    To a degree that betrayed the best hopes of those who came before us.

    We are living in a time like that of Thycidides watching everything collapse.

    And like a Russian novel, things are proceeding with dramatic precision to a fate few of us intended, but everyone will agree was inevitable when we see look back on how far we have fallen as a nation, under this scumbag Obama.

    That, is why we dwell on the past—to understand the future.

  68. freespirit October 28, 2014 at 10:26 am

    OK, thanks for troubling yourself to understand the second part of my post, about the “big picture.”

    You’ve also understood part of my big picture, which is the challenge HRC would face with a reactionary all-Rethug Congress; but that’s only a small part of my big picture because, like you, I think HRC would be up to the challenge and succeed — if she wins in 2016, which is nonetheless unlikely after the result of Nov 4.

    The real problem will come with a next president who is not of HRC’s stature and character. Be it a Democrat who cannot grapple with the inbred Republican obstructionism or a Republican who takes advantage of same in a one-party state of “compassionate conservatives” — now sprinkled with Libertarians and Tea Party — the outlook ranges from a dismal continuation of Obama lite to a downright destruction of the economy — and of the Constitution to boot.

    You seem to have faith that the Republicans are worried about the “usurpation of the power of the legislative branch,” know what to do about it, and are willing to do so….

    Didn’t you learn anything from Dubya’s way of turning the Iraq authorization (the one so many Democrats later regretted voting for) into a declaration of war? Dubya tricked Congress into a declaration of war that it never gave. That was an abuse of executive power, or usurpation of legislative powers, of far greater consequence than Obama’s postponement of certain Obamacare deadlines — which is why he is being sued by Boehner.

    By contrast, the deadline postponements will probably be viewed as within the executive’s regulatory authority since the law is still on the path to enforcement; but the Iraq war? Nobody ever thought of suing or impeaching Bush over his WMD hoax and the ensuing war that is still with us.

    So the Republicans, with all their historic preference for the unitary executive, are unlikely to do anything about the usurpation of legislative powers (i) because they use legislative power only to obstruct; (ii) their own presidents have practiced executive overreach; and (iii) it won’t reap any benefits at the next election.

    What the devil is a Republican majority going to do to help “free elections and democratic process”? Do you know how to spell “2000 elections”? The Rethugs were the ones that began this chicanery. Talk about “damage that will never be fully repaired”! The Rethugs will not repair it because they indulge in it every bit as much as the Democrats.

    So, I pretty much agree with the short article linked by foxyladi at 6:18 am. Barring an impeachment, which is unlikely, and an ouster, which is even less likely, this election will make no difference for the next two years because the standoff between the Obama White House and the Congress will continue as is.

    That is why I said last week that Obama doesn’t give a fuck about these elections. It’s no skin off his nose. He’s probably a little miffed that Democrats don’t want to be seen near him. That’s a blow to his ego, I guess. But when they lose, he’ll just blame the loss on them: They should have called upon him, etc.

    The only difference that will be felt is with the next presidency. Like you, I have no fear of HRC facing a Republican Congress; but I still would hate to see her face off with Mitch McConnell. The man is a corrupt, weak misogynist who will continue the obstruction for the sake of the special interests who are supporting him. I don’t see what good he’s going to do the country.

    I knew this thread was going to get under your skin. It get’s under mine too, that’s why I have not posted much. Not out of fear or cowardliness, just not what I want to spend my time doing.

    Don’t try to drag me into battle with you on this one, I know when people have made up their minds as to what they think Hillary should do, and Admin is usually right in his/her political analysis, so I just hold on though the ‘tough love’ and hope for open waters.

    I understand that Hillary’s sense of loyalty may be her downfall for the 2014 election, but loyalty is one of my flaws too, so I don’t hold it against her. 😉

    If Hillary runs again for President, she will do it her way, she is her own woman. This is where I agree with you.

    You… act as though the past six years never happened.

    Now, that’s just not fair to say that.

    If you were living over here now, you would have a better sense of what we are talking about.

    OK, look: I get the bulk of my US news from this website and read every essay by admin, so there is no lack of understanding what you all are talking about; but I’ll grant you this: If I were living in the US now, would be more upset about it all.

    Living abroad gives me this advantage of looking at everything from arm’s length and not getting riled up about every little thing. I know that sounds unfair; but life being unfair, I try to share my thoughts with you for the greater good.

    The reason the past is important is because it was the beginning of the end of the constitutional order. In the face of a determined attack on this nation, from within, all the protective systems failed.

    At the risk of opening once again the Pandora’s box of the “value of history” debate, just remember that the Constitution was not meant to be written once and for all. So far, it has been amended 27 times and some of the most important amendments (like the 14th and the 20th) came late in the game or have not even been decided yet (I would like to delete the second and fifth amendments). Rather than give all the examples of what I mean, the current crises you see are reason enough to believe that it may not be current realities or people that are at fault but the Constitution itself that needs to be updated.

    The Constitution makes no provision for an obstructionist Congress that tries to hamstring the executive by simply saying “No” to everything.

    For example, the imperfect “Gang of 8” immigration reform bill could have been revised by the House and sent back to the Senate with a provision to seal off the border before doing anything else. Instead, Boehner just buried the bill and it never came up for discussion. Result: 50,000 minors in Texas and Obama left to do what he can with them, which is not to Congress’ liking either.

    What I’m saying in this example is that Congress failed to function normally, leaving the executive with a situation it had to handle without a legal framework.

    Constitutions of other democratic countries have provisions for such parliamentary blockages, in which the executive can take control and do whatever is necessary, and be judged by the parliament later. We should have such a provision but we don’t, short of impeachment.

    There was institutional failure, and there was individual failure writ large. To a degree that betrayed the best hopes of those who came before us.

    Yes, this is exactly what I was saying just above, but the individual failure in that case was Boehner, not Obama.

    … things are proceeding with dramatic precision to a fate few of us intended, but everyone will agree was inevitable when we see look back on how far we have fallen as a nation, under this scumbag Obama.

    That is why we dwell on the past—to understand the future.

    Sure, you can use history to predict the future and be reasonably sure of success if you keep your wits about you.

    But what’s the use of predicting the future when the time of action, i.e. influencing the future, is at hand?

  71. Republicans or Dimocrats? Which party does the public blame and will rightfully punish for the mess the country is in? ABCNews/WashtingtonPost poll:


    Republicans enter the final week of the midterm campaign holding higher ground than the Democrats, aided by public dissatisfaction with President Obama’s leadership, with the overall direction of the country and with the federal government’s ability to deal with major problems, according to a new Washington Post-ABC News poll.

    Driving attitudes is a pervasive sense of a country in trouble. Overwhelming majorities say the country is badly off-track and give the economy negative ratings. Economic expectations are little better today than they were at this time four years ago.

    Six in 10 say they cannot trust the government in Washington to do what is right — the same as a year ago in the aftermath of the government shutdown and the botched rollout of the federal Web site for the Affordable Care Act.

    With multiple crises confronting the country — including the spread of Ebola in West Africa and cases here at home, as well as threats from Islamic State militants — a majority now says the government’s ability to deal with big problems has declined in the past few years. Among those who say this, more — by 3 to 1 — blame Obama and the Democrats rather than Republicans in Congress. [snip]

    When asked whether they will vote for the Democrat or the Republican for the House in their districts, 50 percent of likely voters say Republican and 44 percent say Democrat. [snip]

    Among independents, Republicans hold a sizable advantage, as they did four years ago. Men favor Republicans by double digits, while women favor Democrats by mid-single digits.

    The real battle is over control of the Senate. Republicans need a net of six seats to become the majority party in the upper chamber. At this point, they are heavily favored to pick up three of those six, with good opportunities in seven Democratic-held seats — in Alaska, Arkansas, Colorado, Iowa, Louisiana, New Hampshire and North Carolina. But they are fighting to hold on to three seats of their own, in Georgia, Kansas and possibly Kentucky.

    The new Post-ABC News poll offers only general clues about the races in those states, many of which tilt toward Republicans in presidential elections. In nine states with competitive Senate races, voters express a preference for voting for the Republican in the House election by a margin of 57 percent to 39 percent.

    There is more confidence today than in September that Republicans will win enough seats to claim the Senate majority, although this is not predictive of the outcome.

    Gender gap gone.

    Don’t try to drag me into battle with you on this one….

    Hey, have I ever dragged you into a fight before? I don’t think so. Sure, we’ve had our disagreements but I don’t think I’ve tried to enlist you on my side or purposely take issue with you. If so, very sorry about that.

    If Hillary runs again for President, she will do it her way, she is her own woman. This is where I agree with you.

    Yes, we’re really on the same wavelength here.

  73. How to look like an idiot on national TV……


    Now another top Democratic surrogate, Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), has flubbed another basic fact about a top Democratic Senate candidate. Appearing on “The View” on Tuesday, she referred to Sen. Jeanne Shaheen (D-N.H.) as a senator and former governor from neighboring Vermont.


    She was only there campaigning for her last week, obviously did not pay much attention to who she was campaigning for.

  74. Dumbass…..

    A slip of the tongue, of course, and we’re guessing plenty of Americans mix up Vermont and New Hampshire, at least on the U.S. map. But Warren is from a state that borders both of those states, and the man she beat in 2012, former senator Scott Brown (R), is challenging Shaheen in the Granite State.

    It also suggests that Warren hasn’t exactly been studying the politics of New Hampshire intently with an eye toward running for president 2016.

    Then again she could never tell what fauxahontas tribe she came from either, so its not surprising.

  75. You know when the Rethugs are on ‘higher ground’ with the public, the Dim’s are in deep $hit.

    America has lost ground since 2008, starting with voter tampering in the primary, and besides Bin Laden being taken out, everything else has gone to Hell.

    We are back to voting for the lesser of two evils.

  76. Dems still lagging way behind in Florida……


    “Thanks to strong vote-by-mail absentee ballot returns, Republicans still lead Democrats in overall early voting: 138,572 of the more than 1.8 million ballots cast as of this morning. In relative terms, the GOP is up 7.6 percentage points.” This is a slight improvement for Democrats over an earlier report that suggested it was time to panic:

    Some Democrats are starting to panic. It’s an understandable feeling. Mid-term election turnout in the big three urban counties is historically abysmal, which is a major reason why Republicans hold every statewide elected office but one.

    This is a warning sign for Democrat Charlie Crist.

    “This is horrible,” one South Florida consultant told me.

  77. It’s not just the senate that Obama Dimocrats will be rightfully punished:


    Of the 11 chambers at risk for the Democrats, seven are rated either tossup or lean Republican. The Democratic-held chamber that leans Republican is the New Hampshire House, thanks to a GOP-friendly redistricting map. The seven Democratic-held tossup chambers are: the Colorado Senate, the Iowa Senate, the Nevada Senate, the New Mexico House, the West Virginia House and two new additions, the Kentucky House and the Minnesota House. The remaining at-risk chambers are currently rated lean Democratic: the Colorado House, the Maine Senate, and the Oregon Senate.

    Meanwhile, among GOP-held chambers, there’s currently only one that’s a tossup, the New York Senate. Another six Republican-held chambers are leaning Republican: the Arkansas House, the Iowa House, the New Hampshire Senate, the Washington state Senate, the Wisconsin Senate, and one newly classified lean Republican chamber, the Michigan House.

  78. Don’t try to drag me into battle with you on this one….

    I was partly teasing but standing firm in not wanting the fight. You have nothing to apologize for here. 😉

  79. Can you see Dems crapping themselves yet……

    WSJ/NBC poll: GOP holds an 11 point lead in the generic ballot, 52-41, 6 points better than last week and 4 points better their 2010 poll.

  80. The avenging Angel of Death will righteously cleave Obama Dimocrat heads from their corrupt bodies in the House too:


    House Dems fret debilitating losses

    The political environment continues to deteriorate for House Democrats ahead of a midterm election that’s certain to diminish their ranks.

    With President Barack Obama’s unpopularity hindering their candidates and Republican cash flooding into races across the country, Democrats are increasingly worried that the election will push them deep into the minority and diminish their hopes of winning back the majority in 2016 or beyond.

    Looking to contain the damage, Democrats are pumping money into liberal congressional districts that were long thought to be safely in their column. Over the last several days, the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee has directed resources to maintain seats in Hawaii and Nevada, both of which broke sharply for the president in 2012 — an indication of just how much the terrain has shifted against the party over the past two years.

    Other unexpected races are suddenly in play. Some Democrats, for example, have begun to worry about the prospects of California Rep. Lois Capps, an eight-term congresswoman who is typically a lock for reelection but who now finds herself in a competitive race against Republican Chris Mitchum, a perennial candidate and the son of the late actor Robert Mitchum. In a sign of how seriously national Democrats are taking the threat, the DCCC is making a last-minute purchase of $99,000 worth of radio advertising in the Santa Barbara area to boost Capps, according to a committee aide.

    Operatives from both parties expect Republicans to net five to 10 seats, which would give them some cushion heading into what’s expected to be a much more challenging 2016. [snip]

    Of the 30 House races seen as most likely to change hands, 23 are held by Democrats.

    Capps isn’t the only incumbent Democratic officials are scrambling at the last minute to defend. DCCC Chairman Steve Israel (D-N.Y.) recently coordinated a fundraising event for Rep. Dave Loebsack, a fourth-term Iowa incumbent who has recently come under barrage from GOP groups, and reached out to donors on his behalf. [snip]

    Party operatives say Obama is weighting down House candidates across the country. [snip]

    The effect is particularly acute in culturally conservative bastions like West Virginia and downstate Illinois, where Democratic strategists say Reps. Nick Rahall and Bill Enyart are watching their reelection hopes fade due in large measure to Obama’s diminished standing. Republicans have tethered both incumbents to the president: One new TV ad against Enyart imagines him and Obama together on posters made famous during the president’s 2008 campaign.

    “Make no mistake,” the commercial says. “The Obama-Enyart agenda is devastating to our families and bankrupting southern Illinois.”

    Special bonus: the Obama 2008 poster:

    email from Senate Conservatives Fund just downloaded:
    I want to thank everyone who joined us for our national conference call last night. It was the largest one we have ever done.

    OVER 69,000 AMERICANS GOT ON THE CALL TO HEAR from Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX), Senator Mike Lee (R-UT), and three of our endorsed candidates – Joni Ernst (R-IA), Ben Sasse (R-NE), and Tom Cotton (R-AR).
    Col. Rob Maness (R-LA) was not on the call because he was debating Senator Mary Landrieu (D-LA) a the same time.
    One thing was clear – these leaders are extremely grateful for the grassroots members of the Senate Conservatives Fund who have helped them raise money to compete against the GOP establishment and the liberal Democrats.
    If you missed the call, I want you to know that you’re part of an exceptional group of people who love this country and are working together to save it.

    He sounds like a good guy, and the brother thugs don’t like that he isn’t back on the Dim plantation.

  85. …the bottom line…is the American people do not trust O…they want to be able to reign him in…they hear him threaten to do this and that with his pen and care not for what the country wants or even to try to work with the Congress…or his own party…and people are fearful once the midterms are over, O will do whatever he wants and have no one to answer to…and he will throw the whole country under the bus if it suits him or those that he is beholden to behind the scene…

    …not only do the people see everything he is involved in totally disorganized, falling apart, the opposite of what he says…but people are not stupid…they see that he has been preoccupied with himself and his own pleasure…at a certain point, even people that support him can see he is disengaged, feigns anger and “disbelief” when one of his own departments is a mess…then goes back to golf or whatever distraction he can come up with…the local hamburger joint for a photo opp…some celebrity to grin and yuk it up with…

    he is not a serious man…he is not a ‘work horse’…he is a ‘show boat’ and everyone knows it…and people are sick of it…he makes an attempt to be present by reading his speeches on teleprompters and the thrill is gone…

  86. and the thrill is gone…


    And for most American’s, the thrill of hearing someone read from a teleprompter was never there.

  87. Oh he’s so cute (Obama Girl)
    Oh he’s so smart (he has an unearned Ph. D.)
    Oh he’s so cool that he uses a Blackberry and doesn’t want to give it up


  88. YES .. having to live under OBAMA’s bullshit doings is ONE thing, seeing it from AFAR is another. I don’t need anyone “preaching” to me either. Im MY OPINION .. and it’s like a s s holes everyone has one and until ADMIN tells me I can’t post here again I will choose to post “my opinion”. Some people just have to think they are right about everything….again YOUR choice. I never said “my opinion” was to be digested by everyone BUT I choose to see a Hillary that has DIGRESSED and CONTORTED herself to “fit” the Obama Democrat mold …all for political purposes! Again, IMHO.

    Now she is having to “walk back” her “you didn’t build that moment” but you can’t unring that bell.

    Hillary looks FAKE now and it hurts me to say that, I loved her at one point, I really did. The Hillary who stood in the rain in PA in that black coat, that is the Hillary I will always remember.

    Again, if you don’t even live here it’s hard to WEAR our shoes!

  89. oh dear….

    LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) — Alison Grimes’s campaign says Hillary Clinton will return to Kentucky on November first for a last minute push before Election Day.

    Grimes will also be welcoming Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren as well. Warren will be at a Grimes rally at Copper and Kings distillery in Butchertown on Tuesday evening.

    Over the weekend, Grimes will join Clinton at campaign events in Northern Kentucky and Lexington, just a few weeks after Hillary Clinton appeared in Louisville to speak on behalf of Grimes.

    Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren will be at an Alison Lundergan Grimes rally at Copper and Kings distillery in Butchertown on Tuesday evening.

    Sorry VotingHillary, I couldn’t even get to the ‘haircut’ line of dialogue.

    This guy was hired to speak for the “smartest man on the planet” yet it takes his hundreds of words to say nothing at all?


    Yup, Barry, he speaks for you alright.

  91. Oh no, Admin is gonna go all ‘tough love’ on Hillary for going back to Kentucky.

    Either Kentucky is a close call or the girls just want a beer summit.

    Look out for One Drop, Hillary!
