9612/Obama passed everything when they had absolute control

9612/President Clinton is spot on!"Remember, Republican economic policies quadrupled the debt before I took office and doubled it after I left," he said. "We simply cannot afford to give the reins of government to someone who will double down on trickle-down the president's re-election was pretty simple: 'We left him a total mess, he hasn't finished cleaning it up yet, so fire him and put us back in,' " Clinton said in nominating Obama for a second term. "I like the argument for President Obama's re-election a lot better, Why would America vote back in the party that messed up everything to begin with? Fact is, they won't yfs/ I love the smell of warmongers fuming in the morning <Obama has gone further than ever before in warning Netanyahu not to expect U.S. backing in any war with Iran. that an Izzraeli strike would be ineffective and then said, “I don’t want to be complicit if they choose to do it.-We had good friends in the Middle East, like Kadafi, but we chose to kill them. Now we have our enemies, the Islamists, to do the same in Syria. Machiavelli must be smiling in his grave yfp/Obama and the Dems passed everything they wanted in the first two years when they had absolute control. To blame the republicans is just inane. The Dems should learn to accept responsibility when they decided not to focus on jobs and the economy and instead pass some half-arsed Big Government Obamacare. You decided to waste time on this instead of the economy, take responsibility instead of acting like some spoilt little 3rd grader-Eastwood. He is more cynical than ever as he pokes fun at the gop. I see it as his best skit ever. Love him being a magician!!-Why is it so hard for people to comprehend that OBAMA the MESSIAH has FAILED-listen to Bill Clinton's speech so that YOU understand why things have moved along as quickly as they should have-i am a bad christian, *. i am not a "turn the other cheek" kinda guy. you know what our priests tell us to do when people are insulting our faith? they tell us to ignore it. i am well aware that the Church does not need me defending it. it has stood against greater enemies in it's 20 centuries on earth. genghis khan and the romans come to mind. but, being a bad christian. i hit back.  there are nutty scientists too, no?-You don't have to hit.- hitting is a reflex. i don't go about with a wanton lust for violence and confrontation- 6,000 year old thing is largely coming from a fringe group of Christians in the U.S. Not all of them...and not the Catholic Church- yes... i know this. we don't all handle snakes,  i get disappointed. when people who profess that they are so open minded spend hours bashing other people's beliefs, it makes me sad--fb /gulianij00z skwak on rwnhgeraldo/sheri, honny bo0 bo0 better than the rnc, terry graces the view gals

Musings from Alongside a Border-Inside Karl Rove's Billionaire Fundraiser Businessweek-Laura Flanders, Truthout: "You could choke on the irony in Charlotte this Labor Day. The United States' faux labor holiday falls on day one of the Democratic National Convention. While the Democrats will no doubt tip their hat to working people and imbibe a beer or two on labor's campaign tab, the ragged edge of organized labor's relationship with the Democratic Party will be on painful display. After all, it's supposed to be a holiday-Richard D. Wolff, "Capitalists and the rich remain determined now NOT to bear the costs of the bailouts or the crisis. Unlike in the 1930s, they don't see organized, determined and militant workers' movements to worry about today - nor any USSR positioned as an alternative to modern capitalism, capitalists and the rich lean on their ideological crutches to try to thwart political opposition. The mainstream ideology that works best as capitalism's crutch is blame the government-Gareth Porter, Inter Press service "Contrary to the impression conveyed by most news media coverage, the report provides new evidence that Iran's enrichment strategy is aimed at enhancing its bargaining position in negotiations with the United States rather than amassing such a breakout capability-Subhankar Banerjee, Climate StoryTellers: "It has been a painful day for me. Two pieces of news came in this morning: one about the massacre of an Yanomami settlement in the Amazon, and the other about Obama green lighting Shell's drilling in the Arctic Ocean. Both are about resource wars that lead to killing—humans and/or animals, fast or slow, one to get gold, and the other to get oil-Robert Reich, Robert Reich's Blog: "The most troubling economic trend facing America this Labor Day weekend is the increasing concentration of income, wealth, and political power at the very top – among a handful of extraordinarily wealthy people – and the steady decline of the great American middle class. Inequality in America is at record levels. The 400 richest Americans now have more wealth than the bottom 150 million of us put together-Sue Sturgis, Facing South: "A chemical industry trade group is touting a job-creating side benefit of fracking in North Carolina, claiming that building a plant to process natural gas into the petrochemical products used to make plastics and synthetic fabrics would create thousands of jobs for the state. But the experience of other places with similar facilities shows those jobs would come at a heavy cost to the health of the environment and local community-Andrew Lam, New America media "We are throwing away away up to 40% of our food, the research finds. That is estimated to be around $165 billion in wasted food each year. Even if we suffer from a long drawn-out recession, the average family of four winds up throwing out as much as $2,200 worth of food a year. Then there are the side effects: Garbage production in the United States has doubled in the last 30 years-Paul Jay, The Real News Network: "On August 16 in South Africa, at the Lonmin mine in Marikana, police killed 34 miners who were on strike amongst hundreds in a confrontation with police. A postmortem exam, according to a local television station, revealed that most of the miners killed were shot in the back while they were fleeing police, not as they were, according to the police, about to surround and attack the police. Now there have been charges laid for these murders. Two hundred and seventy miners were charged in the deaths, and no policemen."-William Rivers Pitt, Truthout: "The right-wing reavers, slowly empowered over these last decades by the GOP, have finally slipped the leash and are running wild. They have no reservations whatsoever about making the core of their campaign about swatting the wasp's nest of racism as a means of turning out the only constituency they have left: angry white people-War Drums Beat Ever More Loudly Over Iran Noam Chomsky, Truthout: "If Iran is indeed moving toward nuclear-weapons capability - this is still unknown to US intelligence - that may be because it is 'inspired to do so' by the US-Israeli threats, regularly issued in explicit violation of the UN Charter. Why then is Iran the greatest threat to world peace, as seen in official Western discourse? The primary reason is acknowledged by US military and intelligence and their Israeli counterparts: Iran might deter the resort to force by the United States and Israel-Hacked Intel Email: NYPD Involved in "Damn Right Felonious Activity" Jason Leopold and Matt Harwood, Truthout: "Among the 5 million emails the group Anonymous hacked from the servers of private intelligence firm Stratfor in February, one seems to not only confirm the controversial NYPD surveillance activities uncovered by the Associated Press, but hints at even worse civil liberties violations-The Scam as Business Model, Dean Baker, Truthout: "Private equity companies like Bain Capital are not primarily about producing wealth. They profit largely by siphoning off wealth created elsewhere in the economy. There are many different ways in which this diversion of wealth is accomplished. The simplest and most common trick is gaming the tax code-No Accountability for "Amnesty for torturers is unacceptable. General Barry McCaffrey declared, 'We tortured people unmercifully. We probably murdered dozens of them during the course of that, both the armed forces and the CIA-
Reforming Welfare and Gutting the Poor, widely debunked as a distortion of a mundane policy memo. But the real scandal here isn’t what Obama did or didn’t do to 'workfare'; it’s that both parties have gutted the welfare system as a whole to conduct a cruel social experiment on impoverished families-subtitle? In the case of Mike Lofgren's new book, "The Party Is Over," the answer is the last few decades of American history encapsulated: "How Republicans Went Crazy, Democrats Became Useless, and the Middle Class Got Shafted." offering "The Party Is Over" "Goodbye to All That: Reflections of a GOP Operative Who Left the Cult," an essay he wrote for Truthout in 2011, which became our most popular story of the year, Joan Walsh sounds a strikingly similar note in "What's The Matter With White People" when she observes, "One party, my own, has lost its spine, the other lost its mind."
