Sheldon Adelson, Gingrich Funder, Distances Himself From Attacks On Romney

“The difference is that Barack Obama does not personally gain tens of millions of dollars to do what he does.

Hawker-Beecher modified one of their planes to meet government standards while the Brazilian plane was built to US standards. Why did Hawker-Beecher just not build a better plane from scratch?”

Wall St. Firms Have Already Earned More Under Obama Than During Entire Bush Presidency: Report

Commented Nov 7, 2011 at 14:14:04 in Business

“So the Republican Defenders Of The 1% will attack Obama for the increased wealth of the 1%?

Does this mean that now Republicans will stop trying to repeal, rescind, and/or ignore all regulations that are meant to minimize this historically incessant money grab of the economic elite?

Well, boys and girls, if you don't move your money out of the Big Banks into smaller banks and invest your Wall Street money in enterprises that create jobs here in the USA, you deserve to have your money taken by the big boys who then send that money to foreign lands so as to avoid paying their fair share of taxes in this country.”

“People are so frightening stupid in this so-called information age.

A Politico writer known for duplicity makes unsubstantiated claims about phantom interviews and folk treat his "report" as absolute fact.

This willingness to treat rumor as fact is a large part of why our country is so messed up.”

“But the interesting thing is that the meme about Romney being "weird" is echoing through the media -- the concept is getting out there more effectively than if there was advertising and "spokespeople" putting it out there.”

Change I Never Believed In

“Well, now. Hillary has been Secretary of State about as long as Obama has been president and yet we still have expensive wars, strained relations with other countries, and no solution to the Israel-Palestinian crisis.

Seems to me that she needs to do a bit better at the job she already has.”

hp blogger Andy Ostroy on Aug 9, 2011 at 16:33:51

“Is this President Obama talking!? Welcome to my blog, O! Seriously....Secretaries of State do not end wars.

Nancy Pelosi: 'The Republicans Are The Incumbents'

Commented Jun 26, 2011 at 14:19:28 in Politics

“Sam Stein: "The idea that the House Republicans are the incumbents in 2012 is inherently a self-interested proposition. And Candy Crowley noted, shortly thereafter, that the GOP's power ends at the barriers of just one side of the capitol building."

Sam Stein: "President Obama is on the ballot and among political actors he has the most impact over the course of economic policy."

Obama may have some "impact over the course of economic policy" but with a Republican controlled House and an obstructionist Republican Senate, the President does not have the ability to freely implement his preferred economic policies.

Sam Stein: ...the "GOP's power ends at the barriers of just one side of the capitol building."

Well, since budget matters originate in the HOUSE, the GOP power does not "end" at any physical "barriers".

The Republicans have and always have had -- particularly in the Senate -- the POWER of NO.”

MSaxe on Jun 26, 2011 at 14:30:19

“The House has inordinate legislative power as the keepers of the purse. Although the Senate is allowed to consent, the House must propose all legislation dealing with the budget.

So, if the debate is "Who controls the federal budget?", it's the GOP.”

You and your partner could find yourselves without a job and/or in jail for just being gay if one of the crazed Republican candidates get into office.

JasonBong-Waters on Jun 21, 2011 at 15:19:18

“Your suggestion that I am unaware that I've been fighting every second of my life since I was 14 is too silly to be insulting. Your argument is that "[we] folk" should sit at the back of the bus, preferably crouched behind the seats, for fear of being thrown off. Too late, we folk are already under the bus.

Nothing less than full participation as citizens of the United States is acceptable. Fighting crazed Republicans is easy. We folk got where we are by fighting for ourselves, not by any government largesse, or through the protection of a Democratic President. We folk will fight and go to jail if the situation arises. It is what we've been doing for the last 60 years.”

“Obama hate from the Left. As much as this President has done for the LGBT community, they want more NOW, and if they don't get it NOW, they will abandon Obama NOW.

Like they have someplace else to go Yeah, give the Republicans a try, or the mythical Some-Other-Party Party that will win the White House with a message of "Gay Rights First and Everything Else Second."”

“"As much as this President has done for the LGBT community"

Laughable. The only lasting thing he's signed is the hate crimes law, which had already passed the legislature once. Did I mention he also threatened to proxy veto it, by threatening to veto the defense bill it was attached to? Boy he was just hitting ALL cylinders for gay rights huh?”

“Libya is nothing like the "boots on the ground" Bush Wars.

It is costing us money, but I think that it is worth the effort to find out if a new order in Libya can bring about a democratic nation.”

saltpeter on Jun 16, 2011 at 20:05:55

“You're right. And the fact that so-called liberals can't differentiate between Iraq and Libya shows you why the peaceniks are out of touch. Obama never promised to end military interventions and it's naive to think that Democrats will. Democrats have a century of military interventions, some dubious, some very worthy. Libya, for anyone really paying attention to the Muslim world, is far more worthy than Iraq.”

“Trouble is, we are not there to support democracy. Our imperialist ideals actually do not support democracy. Not even here at home, in America. What is the patriot act about?

“I have very mixed feelings about Libya. It's a quasi-war with very confusing objectives. Is it humanitarian? Or to remove Gaddhafi from power? Or is it to destroy Libyan military capability?
