They only hate it when it is for the poor!
How about helping your buddies with some $50 million of tax payer Dollars? Sure, says Rick Scott. No problem. At least not in Florida.
Oh, but wait, we need to be a little bit more discrete about it. Really just a tiny bit, because the tax payers are as dumb as it gets and we can do whatever we want as long as we tell the right stories (the debt is ruining America, Obama is dangerous, and what not).
So Scott and the Florida State GOP decide they want to show their appreciation to those who donated money to their campaign. Like a startup company called Heritage Property and Casualty Insurance Co that is not even a year old and wants to not only continue the unfair practices of the state-run Citizens [...]
We know that Texas, being your typical Republican state with a low intellect Republican governor, is proud to have low taxes and low regulations. Those two things sound like music in the ears of the Republican flock.
What Republicans fail to understand is that those niceties can have horrible consequences.
Holding on tightly to your hard earned Dollars so that they can’t be spent on regulating food, factories, drinking water, the air you breathe, workers health and safety, highway, lighting and urban security among many others, can make your life and that of your familiy and neighbors miserable, when disease, accident and crime strikes.
The cartoon shown above, published by Jack Ohman at The Sacramento Bee, presents Perry standing at a podium behind a banner extolling the state's low taxes and low regulations, while exclaiming, [...]
Unlike their old Republican counterparts, who forecast doom after every breath Obama takes, the young Republicans, as reported by an interesting NYT article, forecast the doom of the Republican party itself.
What is a young Republican to do? And what are they if not a misguided rarity in the party of old white men? The GOP is already obsolete. They just don't know it. That's how out of touch they are. Their appeal is only for the hate mongers like Limbaugh and the stupid like Perry and the nuts who think Obama is the Muslim born in Kenya. Reality is catching up with many of them and when all the veneer of civility has finally been eroded and that last Republican with a brain can see the emperor has no clothes, the GOP will be known as Zombieland!
While the NYT article [...]
As insinuated by the following cartoon and Slate’s Fred Kaplin, Republicans hate one of their own, Republican Chuck Hagel, because Obama nominated him. Because it means that Obama can claim bipartisanship in selecting his national-security team:
When will Republicans see the light?
The video, narrated by Ed Asner, is paid for by the California Federation of Teachers and seems to be striking fear into the hearts of Republicans everywhere not only those with a child in the California school system. After all, those California children grow up and often move to other states. But Republicans need not fear. Their side and ideas will always be well represented and well funded. It is only fair to give an opportunity to the other side to express themselves.
After piously proclaiming it's revulsion for Todd Akin last month, the National Republican Senatorial Committee issued a statement Wednesday "clarifying" its support for Rep. Todd Akin in the Missouri Senate race and suggesting it might spend money to help elect him:
“There is no question that for Missourians who believe we need to stop the reckless Washington spending, rein-in the role of government in people’s lives, and finally focus on growing jobs in this country, that Todd Akin is a far more preferable candidate than liberal Sen. Claire McCaskill,” NRSC executive director Rob Jesmer said. “As with every Republican Senate candidate, we hope Todd Akin wins in November, and we will continue to monitor this race closely in the days ahead.”
This statement come after appeals from Jim DeMint and Newt Gingrich for Republicans to help Akin. The "clarification" that the National Party is [...]
One of my moderate Republican friends made the very anti-GOP claim that the role of the government is to regulate.
He finds it ridiculous that the House Republicans signed a pledge never to raise taxes and are not willing to give up their stance even when the debt continues to grow.
He says it is best if the Republican Party loses big so that they realize they are going in the wrong direction and hopefully go back to the good old days (from 40+ years ago).
He mentioned that the Republicans from the generation of his parents used to support and sign into law many regulations. He told me, and this surprised me, as I was not aware of it (I came to the US in 1996), that Nixon signed into law many environmental regulations. But he forgot to tell me that it was the [...]
A rather dramatic divergence has occured during the Democratic National Convention between the two major election tracking polls, Gallup and Rasmussen. Halfway through the convention the Rassmussen poll started tilting sharply negative toward Obama, but the Gallup poll showed the President's favorability numbers improving. Today, the day after Obama's speech, the Rasmussen poll has Obama at 46% approve and 54% disapprove, but the Gallup tracking poll has Obama up 52% approve to 43% disapprove. Besides the huge 17% difference itself, what could account for the diametrically opposed trends?
The simple answer is these two polls really are talking to different groups of people. Gallup includes people regardless of phone type, including cell phones, but Rasmussen restricts itself to landlines only. Polls that have released cross-tabs showing the difference in reponse betweens the two groups of users, [...]
