Re: The 2012 Republican Nominee?

I'm growing weary of so much being dependent on which invisible sky wizard our leaders profess belief in. Personally, I think the bulk of them could actually give a rat's patootie over the whole idea of deities, religion and its many variants. They just know that "Christianity" is the mag...

Re: Dear Harry Reid...

I'll bet most of those in the second group have never been to Manhattan and have no idea what a "block" means in that context. In fact, I'll also bet most of them despise Manhattan and secretly are not really all that upset that it got attacked. (Cross-reference Ann Coulter's "joke&q...

Re: Dear Harry Reid...

From my travels on the internet, I'm seeing what are basically three prevailing arguments as to *why* it shouldn't be built -- each one completely flawed. First, is the obvious. The folks who flat-out hate Muslims, Middle-Easterners or anything the slightest bit different than who they are. It's hop...

Re: Dear Harry Reid...

"Ground Zero Mosque?" Bah...that's nothing. In the last few days, I've been told by of the wise inhabitants of various message boards that it's a "VICTORY Mosque," silly. I've also been duly informed that each and every Islamic man, woman and child that ever lived wants to "...

Dear Harry Reid...

...you're a pandering fool on "Mosquegate." I realize that contentious elections make for strange bedfellows, and I certainly don't want to see that nutbar Angle even touching a Senate seat any more than you do, but geez Harry, did you *really* have to go and make our Party look like a bun...

Re: The 2012 Republican Nominee?

If you believe the Federal government should be an increasing (and eventually sole) deliverer of good and services then you are by definition a socialist. Their goal is to get 51% plus of the electorate to be completely dependant on the State so that they will be in power forever. Shouldn't our goa...

Re: President Obama hands GOP its proverbial behind

Seriously...what the hell were these GOP folks thinking? "Boutique" tax cuts? It's like they figured they could spew out anything that sounded just sexy enough to maybe stick. What they weren't expecting was to have their nonsense methodically dissected and thrown back in their face - look...

President Obama hands GOP its proverbial behind

Re: The televised Obama-GOP Conference: Truly the shining moment of his presidency so far. It was a pleasure to see him articulate and school these talking-point robots into submission - right in front of the whole world to see. Well done! You know, love him or hate him, Chris Matthews really hit th...

Re: Meet the new boss, same as the old boss

This is still troubling indeed. Using the same "executive-centric, oversight power" defense that first reared its ugly head on the campaign trail (as well as during the wiretapping case) doesn't seem valid at this point. Ditto for the state secrets privilege argument. While, there may be s...

Re: Republican Scott Brown defeats Martha Coakley in Mass.

In any case, my problem with the HCR mess isn't so much that the Dems didn't hard-sell (though they certainly could have done a lot better in that area) but that they couldn't control the narrative. Obama was a popular President in his honeymoon period with big majorities in both houses. If that is...

Re: Republican Scott Brown defeats Martha Coakley in Mass.

Well, the good news is that Obama is FINALLY getting tough on banks (reestablishing the separation between commercial and investment banks, regulating size to prevent "too big to fail"). Whether it's too little too late remains to be seen, but judging from your HuffPo link just the attemp...
