"Condy Rice, is not a potential candidate." Oh,why not? But then again, neither is Hillary. You may WANT her to be one, but she’s not.
”Benghazi is an issue that won't go away.” Neither will 9/11 or Iraq.
Does Hillary Clinton frighten you all that much?
Referring to your list (quite a few of which are bogus by the way):
”Hillary's got her some 'splainin to do!” About what – to whom – and why?
Using your barometer, if any woman’s got ”some 'splainin to do” it’s Condoleezza Rice. Don’t ya think?
Nice job today Mr. Bennett
Honestly, (referring to your 4:20 post) - do you believe any of that?
WHOA NELLIE! You ask what the context is and then blurt, "It's just difficult for some of us to be humble realizing we had Obama pegged accurately from the get go."
Do you walk to school, or bring your lunch?
Please refer to the third sentence in Micky Rats 11:53 post.
When taken in context, I think the cartoon’s pretty damn good.
Too many reading TOO MUCH into it.
"The carbon tax is nothing more than a wealth redistribution scheme."
Coming soon. An original HBO series.

Al Roker Discusses Atlanta Snow Response

A Limric pseudo haiku:
National Guard playing HAMMERZEIT.
Desert boots work swell on ice!
It is laughable, the incompetence.
The right wing media responses – which will no doubt be vigorously defended here with empty accusations, a plethora of whataboutisms, distraction, and vacuous commentary.
Fairmon, ”Using poor taste in exploiting the wounded veteran.”
Rush Limbaugh, ”Obama Invited Wounded Veteran To The State Of The Union To Say Look What George Bush Is Responsible For”
You certainly went off halfcocked with, ”I hope someone makes sure he doesn't abuse the executive orders option.”
Did you know that ‘Saint (government IS the problem) Ronnie’ comes in first with 381. Obama is down the list quite a bit at 167.
I actually expected more from you Fairmon. My bad.
There is no denying it; Congress is utterly corrupt and completely incompetent. They are guilty of (possibly traitorous) dereliction of duty, pure and simple.
But during the State of the Union Address the President’s references to using executive orders to accomplish what he can’t get with Congress (however obstructive they are) struck me as a bit scary, and one should think carefully of Lord Acton’s warning that "Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely.”
President Obama (as are both houses) is financed by the .001%. After NAFTA and the Bush corporate coup of 2001, everything Washington has done has been calculated for their benefit. 9/11 accelerated it and today, Obama, the House & and Senate are driving Corvettes with free gas. Can there be any doubt that, as Dylan Ratigan said, ”We are being extracted” while hot button social issues act to distract us?
Is the solution to Congress’s absolute incompetence a further abdication of its responsibilities for type of autocracy? I vigorously opposed Bush’s desire for much the same thing.
Something is happening. I can’t quite put my finger on it. Or can I - but am just to afraid to admit it?
State of the Union (2014 Political Remix Video)
by Diran Lyons
Listening to the Republican (along with their cheerleader media) response/rebuttals to the State of the Union Address, and then reading the usual suspect’s response/rebuttals posted here gives credence to Isaac Asimov’s maxim:
"There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there has always been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life; nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that 'my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge.'”
A few of the truly imbecilic media responses – which will no doubt be vigorously defended here with empty accusations, a plethora of whataboutisms, distraction, and vacuous commentary.
”Higher Wages Have No Place in A Recovering Economy.”
“Women Get Paid Exactly What They're Worth. They don’t want a Little Special Handout.”
”The Income Inequality Debate is Bullying of the Wealthy.”
”Obama Invited Wounded Veteran To The State Of The Union To Say Look What George Bush Is Responsible For"
