    You, OTOH, better expect to continue losing national elections, especially as the old-school angry white guys die off. In other words, have fun talking to that empty chair.
    Yeah, I'd worry if I were a republican. But hey, I'd be downright ashamed if I were a democrat, so it balances out.

    If I want the republican candidate elected, I know I can count on at least one thing, the more the dems want it, the more likely they are to shoot themselves in the foot. Repubs are doing that too these days, but it's not native to their playbook as it is with the dems (at least during my lifetime).

    The dems have primaries to face for 2016, it's a lot easier for a party to hold together when they don't.

    How would you know ?

    I have yet to see anything from you that would show you have anything other than a less than moderate understanding of economics and/or monetary systems.

    Chances are you blame Europes problems on " austerity ".

    Like I said, you have no clue of whats actually going on here, but your happy .

    But what about the millions of Americans who now struggle with chronic unemployment ? Or the growing povery level ?

    Because a vote for Obama ensured they would have to strugfle for at least another 4 years.

    I agree that it will be interesting to see who the kooks are in the Democratic Party this time around. The Al Sharpton and Dennis Kucinich wing will want some sort of representation, but we all know that the party doesn't take the Left serious anymore. If they did, Ralph Nader would have been invited in instead of shunned like one of those sexual predator people listed on the internet.

    Not my problem.

    I'm doing great here in Europe.

    They do have my heart-felt sympathy.

    Reid is from Nevada. He can't be too far Left to keep being elected. Plus, he's a Mormon. Not exactly your most Liberal religion.

    Pelosi...no comment.

    Obama isn't at all Left. Biggest joke going outside your bubble is how stupid the Fox News crowd is to buy the nonsense being sold that Obama is a socialist. He's not even liberal progressive.

    Bush was the same. massive spending. Compassionate conservatism. exporting democracy.

    yet the left treated him as if he was an extreme rightwing kind of person. absurd!

    Actually Obama is too close to the middle for a lot of leftists.

    He certainly didn't get re-elected because all of the leftists voted for him, he had fairly broad support.

    Spoken like someone who doesn't understand socialism nor economic policies at all. Seems that whenever anyone has a problem with actual acts they point out Fox News as if that destroys credibility. You seem to confuse the news department of Fox with the Opinion shows but that is normal from people who lack the ability to independently research information.

    Obama is indeed a socialist someone who believes in massive govt. and control of individual responsibilities. He isn't stupid enough to announce his intentions but his actions always speak lounder than his words but like most Obama supporters you buy the rhetoric and ignore the substance. I am still trying to figure out what it is about Obama that generates this kind of loyalty and why don't you tell me what Fox NEWS story has been wrong?

    Re: White House in damage control mode as potential scandals pile up [W:378]

    ron fournier, longtime ap washington bureau chief, now editor of the elite natl journal, this morning on coffee joe

    RON FOURNIER: I'm really not as interested in what the president knew two weeks ago. I'm more interested in whether or not the president or anybody working on his behalf in the White House or at the campaign had knowledge of or directed the targeting during the campaign, months ago. I'm not going to assume and we shouldn't assume that the answer's yes, but we sure as hell shouldn't assume that the answer is no. We should be focusing on that, and, as you say Joe, the other thing is the credibility.

    JOE SCARBOROUGH: At the end of the day, Ron, the question is -- I want to pass this around the table -- isn't the question, whose idea was this? Where did the idea come from? Show us that email. Show us the day the policy was proposed and who proposed it. Isn't that the important key and who signed off on it?

    FOURNIER: That's definitely important. It goes to their credibility, but I think the most important thing is who was it that was behind the pernicious targeting of conservatives, and was it anybody in the White House or the campaign? And it's possible the answer's yes. We need to find out.
    National Journal's Ron Fournier: Did The President Have Knowledge Of IRS Targeting During The Campaign? | RealClearPolitics

    mr fournier has expressed his view that the white house needs to appoint a special prosecutor so that jay carney, for one thing, can show his face in public and talk about something the white house actually wants to talk about, y'know, like immigration or gitmo or...

    well, there's not much this out-of-gas adminstration can safely discuss these days

    (what happened to gun control? and did you hear how hyphy the homosexuals got yesterday after leaky leahy left em out? no? if you don't know what i'm talking about, then you don't know what you're talking about)

    as a matter of fact, the gitmo push this morning at the national defense university in dc, his "major policy address," about which you are 100% ignorant (you were too busy talking, having already figured everything out, such that you are now in the exclusively enlightened position of sharing your conclusions with those of us who do all the work), backfired badly

    but the letter eric holder wrote to congress yesterday (it was between your 75th and 76th post, all unlinked) announcing that FOUR american citizens have been ASSASSINATED by drone, which the admin til now has adamantly denied...

    but back to mr fourner---yes, the editor of natl journal believes a special prosecutor is inevitable (most serious observers agree)

    better now than later, he says, holding out for the president's innocence

    the appearance of coverup, politically speaking, can be as damaging as the actuality

    party on, plato
