    With the inept Republicans not addressing anything of importance to strengthen their message to the American public to vote for them in November, a sudden result of the President's incompetence has surfaced.EBOLA on American shores!Even the lame stream media are reporting this.The sheeple who are usually more concerned about what's happening with Jay Z and Beyoncé have heard about this.Are they worried, we shall see in November.The sheeple usually vote with their pocketbooks, or skin color, I think this election, the sheeple may just vote for their and their families survival.Thank you President 0b0la!

    The woman who ran the Internal Revenue Service's tax-exempt organizations division has been promoted, and now heads the agency's health-care office, ABC News reported. Sarah Hall Ingram was commissioner of the embattled IRS office from 2009 to 2012, roughly the period that the agency is accused of singling out Tea Party and conservative groups for extra scrutiny, based on nothing but their political bent. As a firestorm grows around the IRS, Ms. Ingram quietly left the tax-exempt office and was made director of IRS Affordable Care Act Division...

    Explaining voter fraud, Benghazi and the fiscal cliff to Fox-watching family members..“The Holidays” are now officially here, and all Americans will soon have to face their extended families and listen to them talk. For many young Americans — specifically young Americans related to old white Americans — Thanksgiving and our various Winter Holidays are extra stressful, because young Americans are largely a liberal, Obama-voting bunch, and old white Americans are mostly not. Unfortunately, old white Americans spend a lot of their time being lied to by conservatives on TV, the radio and the Internet, and while that is not their...

    AS A CANDIDATE for lieutenant governor in 1982, John Kerry assured the voters of Massachusetts that he wasn't seeking the position as a mere "stepping-stone" to higher office. But just one year into his four-year term, he announced his candidacy for the US Senate seat that Paul Tsongas was vacating because of illness. Few people held Kerry's broken commitment against him. In part that was because nobody had believed it in the first place (all candidates for lieutenant governor seek the position as a stepping-stone). But it was also because everyone knew what Kerry knew: If he passed up the...

    Andrea Mitchell was willing to peddle the Obama party line regarding the Petraeus matter . . . but Joe Scarborough wasn't buying. On today's Morning Joe, Mitchell dutifully reported that "according to all the officials involved," President Obama was not informed about Petraeus until the Thursday after the election. Scarborough dropped something of a bombshell, saying he "heard about something like this coming several weeks ago." Said Scarborough emphatically: "don't tell me the White House didn't know. That is not true." View the video here.

    Didn't anyone ever tell Rachel Maddow that revenge is a dish best eaten cold? Using the thinnest of pretexts, Rachel went on a Republican-taunting rampage on her MSNBC show last night. The supposed subject was the decision of Senate Republicans to elevate John Cornyn to the #2 leadership spot, despite the disappointing results for the GOP's senatorial campaign committee that he led. That gave Maddow an excuse to refer no fewer than a dozen times to Republican "failure", "catastrophe" and "disaster." View the video here.

    If Election Day is about picking winners, the morning after is for post-mortems. That's when we slice open the losing campaigns, set aside the hundreds of millions of dollars that gush out, and pick apart the cause of death. Why did the Romney campaign fail? Maybe the country is now GOP-proof. That is, maybe a Constitution-guided, free-market, limited-government candidate no longer can "appeal" to the majority of the electorate. It could be that the death knell rang early this year once 67.3 million of us, or one in five Americans, had come to depend on federal assistance, formerly known as...

    Should Republicans unilaterally disarm in the media-bias wars? Joe Scarborough apparently thinks so. Arguing that it distracts Republicans from performing the political blocking-and-tackling needed to win elections, Scarborough has called on Republicans to "stop blaming the media." Saying "let's makes this personal," Scarborough cited as an example of the supposed distractions to which he was referring the controversy over the tape Morning Joe aired in September from a Romney campaign stop. Readers will recall that the clip seemed to show Romney asking the crowd, which had been chanting "Romney!", to change to "Romney/Ryan." But Scarborough suggested just the opposite: that...

But don’t make the easy mistake of following their faulty logic that since the swing states will decide the winner, results in other states are irrelevant.

Mobilized as were many Americans for "change" on the one hand, these communities were also submitted to an impressive campaign by Islamist-leaning organizations and supporters of Arab regimes, on the other hand, all opposed to the incumbent's foreign policy then. They used President Bush's endorsement of Arizona Senate Republican John McCain to frame Obama's opponent as anti-Arab and border Islamophobe. To them, Obama was squaring off with a candidate who supported the so-called "Bush wars" in Iraq and...

    KANSAS CITY, Missouri (Reuters) - Democratic Missouri Senator Claire McCaskill holds a slim lead of 2 percentage points over Republican challenger Todd Akin - essentially a deadlock - in a race being closely watched following Akin's controversial comments on "legitimate rape," a poll released on Saturday showed. McCaskill had been seen as one of the most vulnerable incumbent Democrats but has led Akin in most polls since he said in August that women could biologically defend themselves against pregnancy caused by "legitimate rape." Akin said later he misspoke when he made the remark, which led to widespread rebukes even from...

The draft language of the Democrats' 2012 platform – set for a final vote next week in Charlotte – argues that current safeguards protecting the public against gun violence are insufficient and urges "an honest and open conversation about firearms." The document also calls for "reasonable regulation" governing guns, including laws banning assault weapons and...

    President Obama remains marginally ahead of Mitt Romney in a new national CNN/ORC International poll released on Monday, although Romney leads Obama in the 15 states identified by the network as battleground states. Obama leads Romney nationally, 49 percent to 46 percent, with 4 percent of those surveyed saying they would vote for another candidate or neither candidate. That is inside the poll's margin of error, and it is identical to the 49 percent to 46 percent lead Obama had in the previous poll, conducted in late May. It is also similar to the latest Gallup tracking poll, which shows...

    It didn’t take long for Mitt Romney to hit the hanging curve Barack Obama threw earlier today in his press conference. Speaking in Iowa, a key swing state in the election, Romney asked whether any American President has been more out of touch with economic reality

    I Guarantee to Keep This Pledge to You… I will not vote for a budget that increases America’s debt nor will I vote to increase the debt ceiling. I will help lead the fight to repeal the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, known as ‘Obamacare’. I will vote against any increase in taxes and lead the fight for a more simplified and fair tax system. I will only support nominees to the Supreme Court and other federal courts who are strict constitutionalists. I will vote against legislation which allocates power to the federal government that is not given to...

    A LIST OF FIRSTS FOR PRESIDENT BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA President Barack Hussein Obama is certainly a President of firsts. Here's a fairly comprehensive list: (Read them and weep for our nation) 1st half African-American President in history. 1st President to claim that under his presidentcy the, "rise of the oceans began to slow and our planet began to heal." 1st President to rack up over 5 trillion dollars in debt in less than four years. 1st President to have the national debt exceed 10, 11 , 12 , 13 ,14 and 15 trillion dollars. 1st President to spend a...
  • Notes From The Kitchen Table.

    Flushed with victory from my latest convert to conservatism (another citizen saved from the perdition of liberalism), my thoughts turn to the task at hand. That task is the complete and utter destruction of the Marxist/Leninist plague that is the regime of Barack Hussein Obama. We as patriots know well, maybe better than anyone else, how fragile our freedoms are. We also know that this country cannot survive another four years of the filth and corruption that is the Obama government. Every day brings new revelations of gross irresponsibility, malfeasance in office, outrage after outrage against the institutions and the...
  • Decisions, Decisions

    How does one go about deciding whom to support as the Republican Party nominee for president? Should the decision be based on looks, charm, likeability, electability, soaring rhetoric or grand promises? Absolutely not! Unfortunately, these are the very criterion that Americans usually rely upon when casting their ballots.  If those are the criterion to be used to judge whom to support, even Republicans should simply vote for the current occupant of the White House. Most Americans find Obama neatly fits nicely with most, if not all, of the above criterion and yet he is, unquestionably, the biggest disaster of a...
  • Crumble: Santorum passes Romney nationally in Pew, within two points in Gallup

    Remember way back when Romney led Santorum by 16 points in Gallup’s national tracking poll? That was … four days ago. Today: Romney 32, Santorum 30, Gingrich 16. Mitt’s lucky that there’s a nice long break between Santorum’s three wins in the midwest last week and the next key primaries in Arizona and Michigan. If there wasn’t, I don’t know if even a flurry of negative ads from the Romney Super PAC death star would be enough to snuff Santorum’s momentum in time. Santorum had been planning a slow-and-steady-wins-the-race plod through the primaries, but according to Politico, he’s now thinking...

    What was once looked at as a charming Hispanic heritage has became a battle ground between some Mexican-Americans and political groups in a Sun Belt city in Arizona. As that ethnic population has increased, the undercurrent divisions in Tucson have surfaced and grown.

    Earlier today, I said that only Mitt Romney could derail Mitt Romney this month. Did my prediction come true already? The media and Romney detractors have jumped all over this statement to CNN in which Romney says that he is “not concerned about the very poor,” but that slice of Romney’s statement is entirely misleading — although it’s certainly not adept for a front-runner:
