And the Dems will win Big Time. But I am an optimist.

There are too many seats at risk in Republican leaning districts for this to happen without some sort of apocalyptic Republican meltdown. Repubs are also doing a better job cockblocking Tea Party candidates (despite bluering's delusions) which means there will be fewer "not a witches" losing in otherwise easy victory districts. Democrats' only real goal is to keep the Senate and then win big in 2016. If you really care about that then stop internet flameposting and go find one unregistered person under the age of 30 each day between now and November. The only reason that 2010 was such a shitshow was because young voters stayed home. High turnout = bad things for Republicans which is why they love tighter restrictions on voting.

Bush and the Republicans Started the illegal Wiretapping and Meta data collecting Program, Obama Ends it

Bush Tortures prisoners, Obama signs an executive order that Torture will never be used again

Bush opens a torture Prison in Cuba so it's away from the eyes of oversight, Obama orders it closed, Republicans keep it open.

Bush starts 2 illegal wars on premise of WMD and and terrorism, Obama ends Bush's wars

Bush craters the economy with his deregulation and laissez faire capitalism, Obama bring the Economy back from the brink and surpases Bush's high point before the collaspe.

Thanks Obama

Scott Brown has decided to carpetbag up in my neck of the woods, went to a Republican ally's house to chitchat in front of some reporters and quickly found out that New Hampshire isn't Fox News:


http://talkingpointsmemo.com/livewire/scott-brown-republican-obamacare-benefits


It seems Scott Brown, the once (and future?) U.S. senator, didn't have an answer when confronted with one of his fellow Republicans who has benefitted from Obamacare.

The Huffington Post flagged the Wednesday story from the Coos County Democrat. Brown had met with Herb Richardson, a New Hampshire Republican state legislator, as Brown is exploring a run for the state's U.S. Senate seat.

During the meeting at Richardson's home, Brown called Obamacare a "monstrosity." But Richardson and his wife quickly interjected, according to the Democrat, saying that the law had been "a financial lifesaver."

After being injured on the job, Richardson had been forced to live on workers compensation for a while -- a situation so costly that the couple eventually had to move out of their house. They also had to pay $1,100 a month to keep their health insurance. But now that the Richardsons have signed up for health insurance through Obamacare and qualified for a tax subsidy, they're paying $136 a month for a plan that covers both of them.

"Thank God for Obamacare!" Richardson's wife Rita said, according to the Democrat.

The Huffington Post contacted the reporter, Edith Tucker, who wrote the story. She said Brown didn't interrupt the Richardsons' praise for Obamacare and didn't react when they finished with their story.

"[Brown] did not [respond]," Tucker said. "You could be sure, if he had, I would have written about it."

It's almost as if he made a series of disastrously bad decisions as President in our very recent history that are still heavily impacting us right now.

I say ....

We keep Obama as President thru 2020.

Screw the rules it's a National emergency.

Forget the witch Hillery.

Get rid of all the criminals that are now infested in your Congress and Senate.

There's about 60 to 70 criminals in both Democrats and Repub

The criminals McCain, Victoria Nuland etc should be thrown into jail immediately.

All this for starters, ... of course though, it'll never happen .....

For those interesting in rolling back Big Brother, drop your reps a reminder to support the USA FREEDOM ACT.

Today's news was a welcome affirmation to the power of what one principled person can do for their country. We would not have had this conversation, or this reform, without Edward Snowden.

It's also a illustration of what coordinated, strategic public pressure can do to make this a better country. Deep cynicism has always been fashionable, never more so that today, it seems. There's always a herd to join there.

Well now! Let's hear from all the American public, instead of the
Nathering Nabobs of Faux News Negativity.

U.S. consumer confidence has rebounded to the highest reading in six years, providing a further sign that the economy's prospects should brighten with warmer weather.

The Conference Board said Tuesday that its confidence index rose to 82.3 this month from a February reading of 78.3. It was the strongest reading since the index stood at 87.3 in January 2008, just as the Great Recession was beginning.

Conference Board economist Lynn Franco said consumers are moderately more upbeat about future job prospects and the overall economy, though less optimistic about income growth.

Overall, consumers expect the economy to continue improving and believe it may even pick up a little steam in the months ahead," Franco said.

Sooooo Nabobs! Tell us again about how bad things are under Obama?

That's definitely not true. He could have quietly ended a lot of this sh#t before Snowden ever did anything but the NSA would have gone apeshit and so would have all the pro-intelligence hawks including Feinstein. On top of that is the overwhelming pressure on a CiC to protect the country and had he done this and then there was a terrorist attack all kinds of people would come out of the woodwork screaming about how this was why.

Just look at Benghazi for a great example. There were 13 attacks on US embassies under Bush and the party line to the very end of his 2nd term was "he kept us safe." There has been one attack on a US embassy since Obama took office and we will literally hear no end to what a massive security failure it was well into Hillary's second term.

I can understand why Obama kept these programs going but had he wanted to he could have ended them and without the enormous amount of pressure he is currently under he never would have.

The revelations from Snowden, and the progressive left is twisting Obama's arm to do it now.
Which IS MUCH Better than Never. Right?

Like some one said "we have to Make our Governement Representatives do the right thing, They won't do it on their own"

That's why we Need a strong Liberal Progressive Congress, to force the President and Government back on Constitutional Track

The Obama administration has markedly upped the civil rights ante in three areas. Previous presidents never even came close with regards to the scale of these programs:

Surveillance: Needs no introduction. WAY bigger than during the Bush years, and much better funded. Over 50 B a year - nearly 10% of total defense spending. This has also lead to a disturbing attack on the free press by this administration.

Drone strikes: Wow. Huge increase since Bush. It should be said that the toys are better now.

Deportations: Wow. Huge increase with this administration. This includes 'turn backs', however - attempted border incursions 'turned back' in situ, so the numbers aren't apples to apples, but even accounting for that - the numbers are WAY up.

The good thing about Obama is that he's willing to have a conversation and actually reform these policies when they prove too damaging to human rights and civil liberties - quite unlike he's predecessor, who famously didn't give a sh#t what the public who voted him in valued or wanted.

Dr F: without huge public pressure, organized by several effective advocacy groups, Snowden's revelations would have been buried under a vigorous Ellsberg style smear campaign and the whole issue would have been swept under the rug. Such organizations are critical in keeping our democracy humane, law abiding, and democratic. At least as much as is possible, given, well...you know.

We absolutely have to pressure our government - ALWAYS. That's participatory democracy - it requires something from its citizens. Neglect leads to corporate c*#k sucking, fleecing, and extremism.

Remember, the coo coo clocks never stop chiming and the asset strippers never stop whining and dining. You REALLY don't want those to be the only voices representatives hear.

On another note, Ted "I can't-stop-producing-bastard-children" Nugent is getting paid 16 grand to NOT play Longview, Texas. Ted Nugent isn't allowed to play Texas. Guess you can't call the president a sub-human mongrel, even in Texas. Hilarious.

The funny thing about Texas?

It's gonna be a blue state as early as 2016 - but no later than 2020.

The GOP is losing 2% of its voter base every 4 years.

Keepin' d gays, women, and brown man down was never a winning strategy, really, but this is a party that has been, well, somewhat challenged with regards to long term thinking.

Honey v vinegar rides again!

@ Norton - gotta run, but I'll get back to you re: press freedom. The trend is not good.
