No, I’m not posting that racist piece of shit here. Those two dopey assholes yelling the N word to the only black person in the room who was walking out in disgust…just the beginning folks. By the end of the election the Republicans will probably start showing up in KKK regalia. Just a matter of time now before Romney, Gingrich, Santorum or one of their acolytes will use the N word in regards to the President. And their goose will be well and truly cooked. It’s only going to be a matter of by how big of a margin the President will be re-elected-it’s like my sister says, they do NOT know who they are dealing with.

I’m sure the big money men who actually run the GOP are shitting their pants in fear that Newt Gingrich will actually get the Republican nomination. There’s a poll on Talking Points Memo that shows that Newt’s hated by 58.6% of Americans and liked by only 26.5. Can you see why the REAL leaders of the GOP are shitting their pants? They know goddamn good and well that if Newt gets the nomination, Obama will kick Newt’s ass from one end of the country to the other. I mean, the landslide’s going to be bad enough with Romney, but with Gingrich, it’ll be even WORSE, if that’s possible. To quote Barney Frank, “I haven’t lived a good enough life to see Newt Gingrich as the Republican nominee!”
Chances are this is a hiccup, and Romney will regain his mojo, but if the GOP primary race ends up being like the Democratic primaries in 2008, the President will have an even greater chance of re-election. Here’s what I think will happen; in spite of the defeats by Santorum and Gingrich, Romney will end up with the nomination, mainly because a lot of the more liberal Republican states have their primaries before the convention, and because they’re going to do to Romney what they did to McCain in 2008-just give him the nod. That will piss off the Religious Wrong and the Teatards-and either Santorum, Gingrich, Palin or Trump will magically appear to accept the Tea Party nomination for President. Also, Ron Paul is going to run as an Independent as he’s done since 2004. That means the Republican vote won’t just be divided two ways-it’ll be divided THREE ways. Also, I suspect the Religious Wrong voters will either vote for the Tea Party ticket, Ron Paul or just stay home-they will NOT vote for a Mormon for President.
In other words, the person who’s won the Republican Primaries IS President Obama.
His Mormonism, his Mexican connection, his non-charisma and now THIS:
Mitt’s in the DOG HOUSE now!
Seems that on one of those “family trips”, Mitt was stupid enough to strap the family dog on top of their station wagon (yes, you heard me) in a crate. The poor dog then shit on itself in terror after they stopped somewhere, and the poor thing got a bath in cold water. Kinda like Huckabee’s son that liked to hang dogs for “fun”. So, some enterprising people are now Google bombing Romney the same way LGBT advocates, led by Dan Savage, did that asshole Rick Santorum. And in the same scataogical manner. As Santorum now means semen, lube and shit, Romney now means shitting on yourself in terror. What’s that they say about sociopaths and animal cruelty again?
The Teatards and religious wrong are really desperate to get rid of him, aren’t they? This tells me the Teatards will mount a third party challenge in the general election if Romney is the nominee. Get that popcorn out, you guys-this is gonna get INTERESTING.
The Republican primary race of this year is beginning to look an awful lot like the Democratic primary in 1984. Here we have three candidates: The most electable one according to the money people in the party, the flashy newcomer who’s policy is not only unrealistic but untenable; and the other flashy newcomer, who is not only unrealistic but divisive. Care to guess who I’m talking about?
In 1984, the electable one was Walter Mondale, the flashy newcomer was Gary Hart and the other flashy newcomer who was unrealistic but also divisive was Jesse Jackson. Mind you, Mondale only won the primary by SIX STATES. That’s it. At the time, veteran Democrats were despairing because Mondale-as good of a man as he was-was a shitty candidate. He had no charisma, no ‘star power’ or ‘sex appeal’. Mondale, mind you, was a great representative of the state of Minnesota. He was beloved there. However, he didn’t have what Reagan had in spades-in spite of the fact that Reagan didn’t have the brains the Goddess gave lettuce. That didn’t matter at the time. As decent a guy as Mondale was, he didn’t stand a chance against the Reagan machine. Hart was charismatic but hinky-nobody really trusted him. With the power of foresight, I now know why, thanks to a yacht called Monkey Business. At the time, everyone thought Hart was great, and I considered voting for him in the primary, mainly because Hart was the first one to talk about booting the Far Left out of the Democratic Party. That took guts, and I respected that-and I also knew Hart was right. I didn’t, though-I voted for Mondale, because Mondale was the old school Democrat I grew up with. I still stand by that vote-part of the reason why Reagan dominated the 1980′s like he did was because of ‘flashy newcomers’ like Hart. Hart was Slick Willie part 1. And can you imagine what Reagan would have done to Hart in the general election? He would have wiped the floor with him. Like he did with Mondale, sorry to say.
As for Jesse, as much as he’s done for human rights and for equality for Black and LGBT people-and he’s done a lot-with the racism in this country, there was no way in hell he was going to get out of that primary as a viable candidate. I think he knew that. His was a symbolic candidacy, nothing more. However, Jesse Jackson DID pave the way for Barack Obama.
They blamed Mondale for losing the election, but the fact was that what people were really voting against was not the old-school Democratic Party of Mondale, FDR and Carter. What they were voting against was the Far Left which still had the Democratic Party by the balls at the time. The Far Left didn’t realize that times had changed,and the political landscape had shifted against them, thanks to their huge temper tantrum from 1968 to 1970.
Say what you will about Bill Clinton-and frankly, I’ve never forgiven that man for signing DOMA, DADT and the disaster to our economy known as NAFTA-but he did realize in the late 1980′s that a Far Left Democratic candidate would never win. Americans reject radicalism. We rejected the Far Left and we also reject the Far Right. We prefer our candidates to be in the center-and that’s what Clinton did, thank Goddess. He brought the Democrats back to the center. If it wasn’t for Bill Clinton, the Democratic Party would have gone the way of the Whigs.
And now, the Republican Party is right where the Democrats were in 1984, the party being held hostage by delusional crackpots, only this time it’s the Far Right, not the Far Left. This time, the somewhat electable one is Mitt Romney, the flashy newcomer is Rick Santorum and the delusional rabble rouser one is Ron Paul. If the American people rejected the Far Left guru Gary Hart and the delusional rabble rouser Jesse Jackson, what makes you think Santorum and Paul will fare any better? They won’t. If the Romney-Santorum battle continues-which it will-Mitt will win the nomination by the skin of his ass, like Mondale did. 25-26 states isn’t a mandate by any means. That does not portend well for him going into the general election. And, imagine the ticket-Romney/Santorum? Romney/Paul? That sounds to me like a ticket to disaster. Which portends very well for the President-and for US.
The Republicans have no clue that the American people have woken up from their Reagan induced sleep thanks to the crash of 2008. They have no clue that they are in the same position the Far Left was in 1984-the political landscape has shifted against them, and the people are no longer voting against their own best interests-therefore, the Republicans are well on their way to irrelevancy. And the Republicans have no idea what an ass whooping they are going to get in November, especially after the disaster called the Tea Party took over in 2010. After the ass whoopings in 1984 and 1988, the Democrats woke up and realized they had to get rid of the loonies. Thanks to Bill Clinton, they did. I’m not sure the Republicans will wake up until it’s too late. Let’s hope they don’t. I’ve been waiting a long time for this, and it’s well deserved.
This is why I keep mentioning Obama winning in a landslide in November. With the economy looking up (the unemployment rate is down to 8.5 % and it’s going to go much lower before the election) and the President’s successes both in foreign and domestic policy, compared to Romney, Santorum and Paul, he’s going to look like a great statesman, which he already is. The fear of Mr. Magic Underpants and the Bedroom Police (Not to mention Mr. Audit The Fed) getting in the White House is going to make those sitting on the fence voters get off their asses and vote. And they aren’t going to vote Republican.
So, let’s do this. Lets get out there and get as many people on the Obama bandwagon as possible. Let’s aim for that landslide. The Republican Party needs to know that they are NOT in the mainstream of America. They need a Bill Clinton. NOW.
And also bad times for the Petulant Right..Ron Paul goes nuts, sets himself up for third party run in 2012…Saturday, December 31st, 2011
That’s right. From Talking Points Memo, here’s the nutty part. Ron shows up at a forum in Iowa and talks about the UN “coming to take your property”. Yes. I’m serious. Here’s the article:
SIOUX CENTER, IOWA — Ron Paul stood before a crowded public library conference room here and warned the packed house that the United Nations is coming to take their land and that America is this close to riots in the streets against a government that is becoming more and more like a dictatorship.
Though he was well-received, these two classic Paulisms fell somewhat flat.
This was vintage Paul, the kind of fear of the one-world government and terror over the Amero (North American currency conspiracy) that has been a fixture of Paul’s persona on the national stage. Even as Paul has pushed into the top tier of the Iowa caucus contest, he hasn’t toned down his core rhetoric. This kind of consistency is why people like Paul, even if they don’t entirely buy into the paranoia he’s selling.
Here’s what that sounded like in Sioux Center, a small town in the northwest of the Hawkeye State.
Paul warned of the pro-United Nations lobby coming to take control of your property:
If you want to use your property, you have to get a lot of permits. If you’re in the development business, from the low-level all the way to the top, you have to get permission from the federal government…I’m fearful because some people would like us to go all the way to the UN and have the UN controlling our lands, too.
And here he is warning of the coming violent riots that he hinted are already showing signs of developing on America’s streets:
Freedom has been tested just rather rarely in all of history. In most of history, 90-99 percent of the time, people have had to live under dictatorships. And as our government gets bigger, and violates our civil liberties with laws like the Patriot Act that invade our privacy they become more dictatorial. … We are losing those liberties.
Our system was the greatest and I fear that we’re going to give it up. And as it’s given up, if we don’t deal with these problems, I am afraid that there will be more violence. People will get angry because they’re not going to get what they believe they have a right to. So if you’ve been providing for something else that other people are providing they get angry.
We already see this in Europe, we already see some of it in our own streets where people get angry and upset, where people get angry and upset and if we don’t understand these issues to change the policy it’s going to get a lot worse and then there will be chaos and people will be even more willing to give up their liberties.
Now who in the hell thinks Ron Paul babbling like that will get within two feet of the White House? Only the most deluded Paulbot. And now, from HuffPoach, the setting himself up to run as an Independent in 2012:
SIOUX CENTER, Iowa — Ron Paul says he might not support his rivals for the Republican presidential nomination.
In an interview Friday with Bloomberg News, the Texas congressman said the other GOP contenders represent the “status quo” and do not differ much from Democrats.
Paul says he would have trouble backing any of them and wants to wait and see if they adopt any of his priorities, such as auditing the Federal Reserve.
Paul and Mitt Romney are leading most polls ahead of Iowa’s kickoff caucuses. Paul has attracted support from a coalition of tea party supporters, students and independents.
Paul says Romney’s business background makes him more suited for the presidency than Newt Gingrich. The former House speaker has said he couldn’t vote for Paul if he became the Republican nominee.
Well, I wouldn’t vote for some crazy man who babbles on about the UN taking over the country, either. The really sad thing about all this is that Ron Paul is the ONLY Republican who’s popular WITHIN THE PARTY. I suspect Paul will mount an Independent run in 2012 and basically divide the Republican vote right down the middle, since the fundies will NOT vote for a Mormon. If Paul doesn’t mount an Independent run, then I suspect it’ll be Gingrich. He’s dumb and crazy enough to do it, and he has been hinting that he will do that. His Vice President? He’s been floating around the idea of bringing back Princess Moosica-um, I mean Sarah Palin-to fill in the spot. Gingrich/Palin for the Tea Party? Oh, how delicious THAT will be. He’ll discover what another deluded old man did in 2008-Sarah’s box office poison. I’m calling the GOP 2012 race “Who’s Going to be Mondale?” for a reason. The person who “wins” this really IS going to be Mondale in 1984, who if you remember, won only ONE STATE. Massacre will not cover it.
It seems that someone in the President’s re-election campaign sent an email ’round to supporters that quoted an article that Deaniac83 posted on The People’s View. Needless to say, the petulant Left is all upset because he told the truth about them. Well, if they don’t like what Deaniac said, wait until those America-hating assholes get a load of me. It’s high fucking time the Obama campaign began smacking those idiots down. I suspect this is just the beginning.
There’s a very interesting essay by Oh Crap I Have A Crush On Sarah Pallin over at The People’s View about the Ames Straw Poll and Sarah Pallin’s little trip to Iowa-and she’s right. Pallin is the current conservative iteration of Reagan-only in a dress. I’m certain President Obama isn’t going to underestimate her, and we shouldn’t either. Things are a bit different now, though-for one, the Religious Right-or anyone else-isn’t going to buy the Reagan bullshit again. I don’t think anyone realizes just how burnt they were by Bush and Cheney. Secondly, we’re in a horrible economic crisis directly caused by Reaganomics. IF Sarah Pallin does run for President, I suspect she’ll be running for the Tea Party rather than the Republican Party. That happens, and there will be Pallin and Ron Paul competing for conservative voters against Romney. In other words, it’ll be 1991 all over again, and the Republicans will be split right down the middle. Meanwhile, the rest of us-in other words, the SANE ones-will be voting for President Obama’s re-election. THIS GUY IS NOT CARTER. He’s a better political strategist.
Michelle Bachmann won the Ames Straw Poll in Iowa. Yeah, I know these straw polls don’t really mean a whole hell of a lot, but if Bachmann wins any of the caucuses or primaries, the Republicans are going to be up shit creek with no paddle. AND-if Princess Shooting Moose enters the race-and according to Andrew Sullivan, she will-the GOP is fucked. Completely. There’s no way in hell Obama will NOT be re-elected. Nobody wants Dumb and Crazy as President and Vice President-because I’m damn sure it won’t be Crazy and Dumb.
OK, the news from the recall elections in Wisconsin last night is frankly, horrible for the Petulant Left. They brought all their heavy hitters to Wisconsin to try to get the vote out. Ed Schultz was there and so was Cenk Ugyur and Jane Hamsher. Even Michael Moore showed up to lend a hand. What happened? The GOP managed to hold on to three seats, the Democrats got two seats, and one seat’s being contested, although the AP called it for the Republican (UPDATE:The Wisconsin Democratic Party has dropped contesting the 8th District election, so the Republican won). So. Two out of four. Of course they’re spinning the results as a “major victory” for the Wisconsin Democrats but we all know the truth. The Petulant Left got it’s collective ass kicked in Wisconsin last night, and for that we should be exceedingly happy.The Wisconsin Democrats DID get two more seats in the Wisconsin legislature that they didn’t have before,so that’s kinda good for the Democrats. And, as the President didn’t waste his time-or the national Democratic Party’s money, time and energy-on recalling six Republicans who will lose their seats in 2012 anyway, the President actually comes away from this with an enhanced reputation, since he’s the one who’s NEVER LOST AN ELECTION unlike the Loony Lefties who have lost SEVERAL.
The Democratic Party relied on those people from 1980 to 1991, and all they did was further Reagan’s kill the middle class policy by getting their asses kicked election after election, both state and national. Why did that happen? Because the PL never grew up. They never became emotional adults. They relied on tactics that didn’t work-even in the anti-Vietnam War protests of the late 1960′s. I’ve been saying for a long time that the Far Left never got beyond the anti-War Movement. And it’s becoming more and more obvious that is the case. We don’t need that in the Democratic Party, especially now. One of the few things Bill Clinton did right was to kick the Petulant Left out of the Democratic Party. Why? BECAUSE THE PETULANT LEFT CAN’T WIN ELECTIONS. They scare too many moderates and Independents off with their frothing at the mouth, angry rhetoric, always talking about how America is this horrible place they’re stuck in. I mean, honestly-would you vote for that? I wouldn’t. It’s not so much the candidates as it is the people BEHIND them saying this nonsense. And it discredits the candidates every single time. That’s why the PL can’t win elections and they need to be kept far, far away from Democrats, just like the far Right needs to be kept far, far away from Republican candidates.
Let’s look at the facts. Was ANYBODY calm and rational on either side during the Wisconsin recall campaign? Everything I saw was “crush the Republicans” or “crush the Tea Party”. There were no calm, rational adults saying “Hey, we need to calm down here and bring down the overheated rhetoric a bit. These people are our friends and neighbors-we need to work with them, not against them.”. It was all rant, rant, rant. Hate, hate, hate. And now? The PL will be ranting even more thanks to their fuckup in Wisconsin. So, last night in Wisconsin was a huge victory for the President-believe it or not. The results show that President Obama’s bipartisan (READ: ADULT) approach works, and the PL’s late ’60′s “burn ‘em out” tactics do not. The PL was shown for the unelectable, immature fools they really are, rather than the “revolutionaries” they like to think of themselves as. Hopefully, the Unions learned their lesson and will now go back to the center-Left coalition that brought them to the table in the first place.
I wouldn’t be surprised if Cenk, Michael Moore and Hamsher threaten to burn Wisconsin down now that the Republican in the contested election was the winner. Frankly, anger and violence is all they’ve got, now since last night’s results showed that votes from moderates and Independent voters mean more than frothing at the mouth tirades about how America needs to follow THEIR lead. Notice how much Huff Poach is talking up the London riots? In my humble opinion, that’s what they want to see happen in Wisconsin, now that this recall crap has failed. Hopefully, cooler heads in Wisconsin will prevail, but they are going to have to get rid of these grifters in their midst. The best thing for the President to do is stay far away from these people, and that’s exactly what he’s doing. Thing is, a wounded animal is the most dangerous one-and make no mistake about it-the Petulant Left is not just wounded-they’ve taken a electoral beating so bad it would land a human being in the ICU. So, they’re very dangerous right now, and the President, I’m sure, knows that.
So, let’s hope things turn out for the best, and that Wisconsin isn’t London. I’m sure it’s not, and cooler heads there will prevail, but I’m really concerned about this mainly because Moore, Hamsher, Schultz and Uygur have to be smarting from the asskicking they and their immature little PL buddies got last night. And you know what? They deserved it. I’m not happy when the Republicans win because their policies hurt real human beings rather than “political ideology”, but just the fact that the PL got it in the shorts last night is not necessarily a bad thing. Is it good for Wisconsin Democrats or the people in Wisconsin in general? Of course not.Like I said, extremist Randian Republican ideology is horrible for the average working folks who are affected by it. But-is it good for the Democratic Party as a whole? Absolutely. The more people like Ed Schultz, Jane Hamsher, Michael Moore, Adam Green and Cenk Ugyur are shown for the frauds they actually ARE and how irrelevant to the average voter they REALLY are, the better for actual, mature, moderate and liberal ADULTS who are Democrats-and especially the President himself.
Here’s what the White House is saying about it:
The president will be authorized to increase the debt limit by at least $2.1 trillion, eliminating the need for another increase until 2013.
The first tranche of cuts will come in at nearly $1 trillion. That includes savings of $350 billion from the Base Defense Budget, which will be trimmed based off a review of overall U.S. national security policy.
A bipartisan committee with enhanced procedural authority will be responsible for pinpointing $1.5 trillion in deficit reduction from both entitlements and tax reform, as well as other spending programs.
The committee will have to report out legislation by November 23, 2011.
Congress will be required to vote on Committee recommendations by December 23, 2011.
The trigger mechanism — should the committee’s recommendations not be acted upon — will be mandatory spending cuts. Those cuts, which will begin in January 2013, will be split 50/50 between domestic and defense spending. Social Security and Medicare beneficiaries and “low-income programs” would be exempted from those cuts.
At first glance, the President GOT EVERYTHING HE WANTED including the power to raise the debt ceiling without the approval of Congress, which holds this off until after 2012. Also, Social Security and Medicare came away virtually untouched except for the COLA cuts on SS which don’t affect benefits and some cuts that don’t affect Medicare benefits. The only things he didn’t get was tax increases on the wealthy, which will happen on New Year’s Eve of 2012 anyway, which will be 10 days before he’s inaugurated for his second term in 2012-and he will be-and an extension of unemployment benefits.So, I don’t see why the PL is bitching. Or are they bitching because Obama WON? It seems like it was the REPUBLICANS that caved, not the President. And can we stop using that word “caved”? I know you PL assholes think Obama is a pussy, but it should be clear by now that he’s NOT a pussy. And look who’s talking about pussies-the biggest pussies in the country. The Far Left.
