Yes, Republicans, President Obama Really DOES Have a Mandate!

Posted by on Wednesday, November 7, 2012,
Washington Post columnist Charles Krauthammer said on Fox News last night after Obama's win, “...this is not a mandate in the number [of electoral votes]...”

Fox News repeated the "no mandate" line several times throughout the night after the results came in.

Twitter was ablaze with comments from the right echoing the "he has no mandate" refrain.

Herman Caine tweeted that, "Obama won on Popularity", as if that were a bad thing. Apparently, Mr. Caine is unaware of how elections work.

This has ...

Republican VP Nominee Paul Ryan Argues FOR Stimulus Spending

Posted by on Sunday, August 19, 2012,
Long before he became one of the right’s most vocal critics of the idea that government spending could help boost the flagging economy, Mitt Romney's choice for his Republican Presidential running mate, Representative Paul Ryan offered a forceful, full-throated defense of stimulus spending — when then-President George W. Bush wanted it in 2002.

Ryan has denounced the 2009 Recovery Act signed by President Obama as “a wasteful spending spree” and “failed neo-Keynesian experiment,” an...

THE REPUBLICAN PARTY AND THE CENTRIST WOMAN

Posted by on Tuesday, March 13, 2012,

I would call myself, if I had to pick a label, a social libertarian, fiscal moderate, and an ecological conservative. I am put off by big-government meddling into people's private lives, excessive spending on wars without funding, and government subsidies to oil corporations who are making record profits while my gas prices remain high and Wall Street speculators make out like bandits.

I am frustrated by the waste of my tax dollars on the burgeoning prison industry, the failed War on Drugs, t...

ROMNEY'S TAX AVOIDANCE plus BAIN CAPITAL INVESTIGATED by FBI

Posted by on Sunday, January 8, 2012,
An investigative report by ABC reveals that Republican Presidential Primary candidate Mitt Romney, who I have dubbed #TheTwoHundredMillionDollarMan on twitter, has avoided paying his fair share of taxes by hiding his money in off-shore accounts in the Cayman Islands and elsewhere. Is it any wonder that he continues to refuse to release his income tax records as is the tradition of those running for the Executive Office of this nation? Watch:

OBAMA'S JUSTICE DEPT IS LETTING US DOWN

Posted by on Saturday, December 31, 2011,
"The Obama Justice Department hasn't tried a single Wall Street executive in a criminal court. Against a handful, it decided to let the S.E.C. bring civil charges of fraud, which are easier to prove. So if defendants' wrists are merely being slapped by the S.E.C. instead of cuffed by the Justice Department, Obama has only his appointees to blame.

For three important reasons, the President needs to explain why the Justice Department has filed away its investigations of big banks and Wall Street...

TEA PARTY AND GOP LOSING SUPPORT...Among Their Supporters

Posted by on Friday, December 30, 2011,
According to the non-partisan Pew Research Center, since the 2010 midterm elections, the Tea Party has not only lost support nationwide, but also lost support in the congressional districts represented by members of the House Tea Party Caucus. And this year, the image of the Republican Party has declined even more sharply in these GOP-controlled districts than across the country at large.

In the latest Pew Research Center survey, conducted Nov. 9-14, 2011, more Americans say they disagree (27%...

OCCUPY MOVEMENT GARNERS MORE SUPPORT than the Tea Party

Posted by on Tuesday, October 25, 2011,

According to a new Pew Research/Washington Post poll, nearly 40 percent of Americans support the
Occupy Wall Street movement. In contrast, only 32 percent of Americans support the Tea Party movement. Conversely, while 44 percent oppose the Tea Party movement, just 35 percent oppose the Occupy movement.

Politicians jockeying for the Independent vote in 2012 may want to take note that more Independents support the Occupy Wall Street movement than do not: 43% support the movement and 35% are oppo...
