  • Why We’re Suspending the “Run Warren Run” Campaign (But we’re still declaring victory.) (Barf Alert)

    Today we announce the suspension of our campaign to draft Elizabeth Warren into the presidential race. There’s no sugar-coating it: We didn’t achieve our central goal. But there’s a bigger story that gives us tremendous hope: as one headline put it, “Elizabeth Warren may not be running, but she’s in the 2016 race anyway.” In the six months since we launched the Run Warren Run effort, Senator Warren’s agenda and message have transformed the American political landscape. Echoing Warren’s famous adage that “the game is rigged,” Hillary Clinton declared in her campaign announcement that “the deck is still stacked in...
  • The left is now eating its own: not happy ObamaCare has become a "political nightmare'

    American Thinker ^ | 11/20/2013 | Sally Zelikovsky is not happy that ObamaCare has become a "political nightmare" so they are blaming their cronies in the "mainstream media" (yes, they actually use that term) for failing to present balanced coverage of ObamaCare's successes. [See their latest mass email below.] To combat this grave injustice, they are launching a campaign against the Democrat-Media Complex by flooding newsrooms and the internet with stories of the millions of Americans who have purportedly benefitted from ObamaCare. Anyone who has been paying attention for the last 5 years -- even a liberal -- knows that any claim that the press is slanted...

    A new anti-war ad by the left-wing advocacy group highlights a growing foreign policy divide between President Barack Obama and the larger progressive movement that has long supported him. “We never set out to spend eight years at war in Iraq… Or to be mired down for more than a decade of fighting in Afghanistan… So what should America expect if we rush into Syria ­­alone, with no real plan for the consequences?,” says the video’s narrator. “We already know: It gets worse,” the narrator continues. “Congress: The majority of Americans OPPOSE missile strikes in Syria.” The video is...

    Secretary of State John Kerry and French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius stood shoulder-to-shoulder today to say the two countries are united in their belief that Syrian President Bashir al-Assad must be punished for unleashing chemical weapons on his own people. "This is our chance to join together and pursue accountability over appeasement. We in the United States know and our French partners know that this is not the time to be silent spectators to slaughter," Kerry said. "What we are talking about is standing together and speaking with one voice in opposition to a clear violation of a red line...
  • MoveOn: Romney Political Suicide

    08/11/2012 12:32:54 PM PDT · by Bryanw92 · 54 replies email | Aug 11, 2012 | Justin Reuben
    Dear MoveOn member, Breaking news: Mitt Romney just picked tea party hero Paul Ryan as his running mate. And Romney may have just committed political suicide. Paul Ryan is the author of the most extreme right-wing budget ever proposed in Congress. He wants to dismantle Medicare, privatize Social Security, and cut taxes for millionaires while raising taxes on the middle class.1 Simply put, the policies Paul Ryan stands for are politically toxic. But here's the thing: Paul Ryan isn't just a extremist—he's young, smart, and charming. The media constantly describe him as looking like "the boy next door." He's the...

    The House on Thursday formally censured Rep. Charlie Rangel for financial misconduct despite pleas from the New York Democratic lawmaker and some of his colleagues for a less punishing reprimand. The House voted to censure Rangel 333-79. Rangel, who became the 23rd House member to be censured, appeared at the front of the chamber while Speaker Nancy Pelosi read the resolution.

    Dear MoveOn member, Republicans are on a rampage to repeal health care. And with so much misinformation out there, we need to fight back with the truth. So we've got an ambitious plan to go into Republican districts with ads that let voters know what the health care reform law means for their families and hit the Republicans for being against it. To make this work we're going to need to raise $200,000 this week— and that will take 3 donations from people in Livonia. Can you chip in $5? (link deleted) Our new ad campaign is one of the...

    Former Rep. Eric Massa (D-N.Y.) has been under investigation for allegations that he groped multiple male staffers working in his office, according to three sources familiar with the probe. The allegations surrounding the former lawmaker date back at least a year, and involve "a pattern of behavior and physical harassment," according to one source. The new claims of alleged groping contradict statements by Massa, who resigned his office on Monday after it became public that he was the subject of a House ethics committee investigation for possible harassment. Massa had said that the allegations were limited to his use of...

Whoopi wanted to clarify the comment and make it clear that she was talking about the legal charge against Polanski at the time.

    Democrats must drop efforts to censure a GOP representative who shouted "You lie" during President Obama's speech, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said Thursday. Democratic leaders Thursday were looking into what formal action the House could take against Rep. Joe Wilson, R-S.C., whose outburst during Obama's address on healthcare reform to a joint session of Congress the night before, shocked the chamber, The Hill reported. "It's time for us to talk about healthcare, not Joe Wilson," said Pelosi, D-Calif. One option Democrats considered was censure. Pelosi nixed censure, as well as a call for Wilson to apologize on the floor. "I'm...
  • Specter wants Wilson censured

    Specter wants Wilson censured Sen. Arlen Specter (D-Penn.), who's looked at POTUS from both sides now, was just on the Bill Press radio show suggesting the South Carolina firebrand Joe Wilson be censured for his heckle heard round the world. Said the Republican-turned-Dem: "He apologized immediately afterward but I don't think that’s adequate... If an apology is the consequence of an outburst I think we can expect more – that’s not a sufficient penalty that’s not a sufficient price to pay.. I'm not saying the guy should be kicked out of the House… But there ought to be some rebuke,...
  • MoveOn's Latest Strategy: Getting Their Members to Write Letters to the Editor

    Dear MoveOn member, Right-wing mobs aren't just disrupting congressional town halls—their outlandish lies are now making their way into mainstream news coverage, too. We need to set the record straight. The majority of Americans support real health care reform. And no wonder, given the incredible cost of inaction. In Michigan alone, 620 people lose their coverage every day. And for those with insurance, yearly premiums will hit $22,579 in a few years if we don't act. We can't let right-wing extremists ruin the biggest opportunity in a generation to get real reform. Can you send a quick letter to the...

    ( - Does any doting mother want to think about putting her firstborn baby in harm's way? Liberal backers of Sen. Barack Obama are banking on a "no" answer. The liberal advocacy group is running a political ad featuring a new mother, bouncing baby boy on her lap, chiding John McCain about wanting to wage a "hundred-year" war in Iraq. "John McCain, when you say you would stay in Iraq for a hundred years, were you counting on Alex? Because if you were, you can't have him," the mother (actress) says with a quaver in her voice.

    WASHINGTON -- It now looks like Sen. Larry Craig is going to leave office after all. His top spokesman said Thursday that Craig has just about dropped any idea of trying to complete his term, and that he is focused on helping Idaho send a new senator to Washington within a few weeks.

    Washington, D.C. - "The storm over Sen. Larry Craig's (R-Idaho) guilty plea for 'disorderly conduct' in a men's restroom shows that sexual morality matters," stated Wendy Wright, President of Concerned Women for America. "This unpleasant incident highlights the vast problem of sexual deviancy and that Americans have the right to expect moral sexual behavior from others, including U.S. senators. "In light of the accusations against him, Sen. Craig has been criticized for voting to protect Americans from being forced to accept abnormal sexual behaviors. The furor over the accusations against him reveals that Americans do not accept sexual deviancies, so...

    The DUmmie implosion is proceeding apace as you can see in this THREAD titled, "The RoadMap to Impeachment: 'Violence' is The Answer." DUmmie author, Senator, placed "Violence" in quotes since he means the DUmmies should get "violent" not in the physical sense (which would get him arrested for publicly advocating it) but in the ANNOYING sense. Yes, DUmmie "genius" Senator wants the DUmmies to act incredibly ANNOYING in order to draw attention to their lost cause of impeachment. Ironically, by following DUmmie Senator's RoadMap advice, they are just harming their dopey cause even more since such tactics would only...

Democrats know Senator Frist’s efforts are intended to restore Senate tradition by granting highly qualified judicial nominees the vote they deserve and have received for the past 214 years.
