Well Hello!..Time to resurrect this thread.
While scrolling through it, I found some really interesting things, that, of course, our resident 'so-called liberals and intellectuals' would probably wish they never posted.

i wonder if some of the, 'Popular Views: the Obama Administration' have changed at all, yet....

As I've posted a few times on here, raising the topic, on likening the diehard Democrats to the diehard Republicans, when the diehard Republicans just 'didn't get it', when Nixon got found out, and left office.
Now the shoe is on the other foot....and you can throw in that bag, Hilary, as well.

So, let's update those views!

Maureen Dowd, chile roja, a good Irish girl, everyone's favorite red-head, Pulitzer Prize winner, the spicy red-headed NY Times columnist:

He Has a Dream

As he has grown weary of Washington, Barack Obama has shed parts of his presidency, like drying petals falling off a rose.

He left the explaining and selling of his signature health care legislation to Bill Clinton. He outsourced Congress to Rahm Emanuel in the first term, and now doesn't bother to source it at all. He left schmoozing, as well as a spiraling Iraq, to Joe Biden. Ben Rhodes, a deputy national security adviser, comes across as more than a messagemeister. As the president floats in the empyrean, Rhodes seems to make foreign policy even as he's spinning it.

But the one thing it was impossible to imagine, back in the giddy days of the 2009 inauguration, as Americans basked in their open-mindedness and pluralism, was that the first African-American president would outsource race.

He saved his candidacy in 2008 after the "pastor disaster" with Jeremiah Wright by giving a daring speech asserting that racial reconciliation could never be achieved until racial anger, on both sides, was acknowledged. Half black, half white, a son of Kansas and Africa, he searchingly and sensitively explored America's ebony-ivory divide.

He dealt boldly and candidly with race in his memoirs, "Dreams From My Father." "In many parts of the South," he wrote, "my father could have been strung up from a tree for merely looking at my mother the wrong way; in the most sophisticated of Northern cities, the hostile stares, the whispers, might have driven a woman in my mother's predicament into a back-alley abortion — or at the very least to a distant convent that could arrange for adoption. Their very image together would have been considered lurid and perverse."

Now the professor in the Oval Office has spurned a crucial teachable moment.

He dispatched Eric Holder to Ferguson, and deputized Al Sharpton, detaching himself at the very moment when he could have helped move the country forward on an issue close to his heart. It's another perverse reflection of his ambivalent relationship to power.

He was willing to lasso the moon when his candidacy was on the line, so why not do the same at a pivotal moment for his presidency and race relations? Instead, he anoints a self-promoting TV pundit with an incendiary record as "the White House's civil rights leader of choice," as The Times put it, vaulting Sharpton into "the country's most prominent voice on race relations." It seems oddly retrogressive to make Sharpton the official go-between with Ferguson's black community, given that his history has been one of fomenting racial divides, while Obama's has been one of soothing them.

The MSNBC host has gone from "The Bonfire of the Vanities" to White House Super Bowl parties. As a White House official told Politico's Glenn Thrush, who wrote on the 59-year-old provocateur's consultation with Valerie Jarrett on Ferguson: "There's a trust factor with The Rev from the Oval Office on down. He gets it, and he's got credibility in the community that nobody else has got."

Sharpton has also been such a force with New York's mayor, Bill de Blasio, in the furor over the chokehold death of a black Staten Island man that The New York Post declared The Rev the de facto police commissioner. The White House and City Hall do not seem concerned about his $4.7 million in outstanding debt and liens in federal and state tax records, reported by The Post. Once civil rights leaders drew their power from their unimpeachable moral authority. Now, being a civil rights leader can be just another career move, a good brand.
Thrush noted that Sharpton — "once such a pariah that Clinton administration officials rushed through their ribbon-cuttings in Harlem for fear he'd show up and force them to, gasp, shake his hand" — has evolved from agitator to insider since his demagoguing days when he falsely accused a white New York prosecutor and others of gang-raping a black teenager, Tawana Brawley, and sponsored protests against a clothing store owned by a white man in Harlem, after a black subtenant who sold records was threatened with eviction. A deranged gunman burned down the store, leaving eight people dead.

Sharpton also whipped up anti-Semitic feelings during the Crown Heights riots in 1991, denouncing Jewish "diamond dealers" importing gems from South Africa after a Hasidic Jew ran a red light and killed a 7-year-old black child. Amid rioting, with some young black men shouting "Heil Hitler," a 29-year-old Hasidic Jew from Australia was stabbed to death by a black teenager.

Now, Sharpton tells Thrush: "I've grown to appreciate different roles and different people, and I weigh words a little more now. I've learned how to measure what I say."

Obama has muzzled himself on race and made Sharpton his chosen instrument — two men joined in pragmatism at a moment when idealism is needed.

We can't expect the president to do everything. But we can expect him to do something.

FACTS, Greggie boy:

But the real scorecard on the Senate Democrats elected in 2008 is in the Census Bureau's Current Population Survey data. While all Democrats claimed to be champions of the middle class and defenders of minorities and women, census data show how their program did not live up to their campaign promises.

Since the Senate Democratic Class of 2008 took control, the average real income of the poorest one-fifth of American families has declined every year, falling to $15,534 in 2012 from $16,962 in 2008 (the 2013 data will be released Sept. 16). The average real income of the lowest quintile of Americans is now below the level it was in 1968, the year when the War on Poverty began its spending surge.

The next-highest income quintile, often referred to as the working class, has also experienced a continuous decline in real income since January 2009. The average income of these Americans has fallen 6.5% and is now $1,182 lower than it was when President Reagan left office.

The third quintile—America's middle class—has seen its average income decline to $62,464 from $65,672. More than half of this decline has occurred since the recovery officially began in the second quarter of 2009.

Losses for the typical household, as measured by real median income, have been especially heavy in the very states where 2008 Senate Democrats are up for re-election. In Alaska, household income in 2012 was 7.2% lower than it was at the end of 2008, falling back to its 1988 level. In Arkansas, household income has dropped 8.2%. Colorado households have 13.5% less income than they did before the Democratic Congress and President Obama transformed America. The same is true in Louisiana, where household income has fallen 7.9%. And in North Carolina, household income has declined 10.2%—falling to the lowest level in the 28 years the Census Bureau has provided state-by-state income data.

Census data also show the progressive program has failed women and minorities. Married women, unmarried women and women living alone all saw their incomes fall. Under the Obama administration, the median income of women has fallen more during the recovery than it did during the recession, an unprecedented economic failure in postwar America.

The real median income of African-American households has fallen by 9.5%, more than any other major census classification. Hispanic income has fallen, especially for middle-income Hispanic families, whose income has declined every year since 2008. According to the latest census data, the income of middle-class Hispanics is lower than whenJimmy Carter was president.

The Democratic Party's great political victory in 2008 led to the realization of a progressive agenda in the making for a century. But that agenda resulted in economic failure for working Americans. It failed as it has always failed: Progressive policies buy votes but destroy prosperity. The Senate Democratic Class of 2008 and the entire Obama program are now endangered because their program has hurt the very people it was supposed to benefit.

Greggie boy,

Care to bring up any FACTS?

You are making an ad hominem attack- this indicates you have no basis for your argument save your bigotry.


An ad hominem (Latin for "to the man" or "to the person"[1]), short for argumentum ad hominem, is a general category of fallacies in which a claim or argument is rejected on the basis of some irrelevant fact about the author of or the person presenting the claim or argument.[2] Fallacious Ad hominem reasoning is normally categorized as an informal fallacy,[3][4][5] more precisely as a genetic fallacy,



The FACTS presented are verifiable- IF you don't like the conclusion, too bad.

Or argue the FACTS ( if you can) . Otherwise, YOU LOSE.

Senate Democrats vs. the Middle Class [Obama's "recovery" has hurt blacks, women, and the poor]
Wall St. Journal ^ | August 17, 2014 | Phil Gramm And Michael Solon

Senators elected in 2008 made Obama's agenda possible, and its results have harmed most Americans.

By
PHIL GRAMM And
MICHAEL SOLON
Aug. 17, 2014 7:10 p.m. ET

On Nov. 3, 2008, seven new Democratic senators were elected, giving Democrats 58 votes. Eight months later, with the Minnesota Senate race settled and Arlen Specterhaving switched parties, Democrats secured the 60th vote to overcome filibusters and impose absolute control over the Senate for the first time in 31 years. In 78 days, American voters will render judgment on the record of the Senate Democratic Class of 2008, and on all 35 Democratic candidates seeking to perpetuate their Senate majority.

The Senate's Democratic majority was united after the 2008 election in its commitment to President Obama's progressive vision to remake America. And with a financial crisis afoot, it was determined to not waste the opportunity.

ObamaCare, which gave government control of the health-care system, was vigorously supported, promoted and defended by every Senate Democrat. It became law in March 2010 without a single Republican vote in either house of Congress. Every Democratic senator cast the deciding vote for ObamaCare.

Since the Progressive Era a century ago, Democrats have dreamed of seizing the commanding heights of the financial system to expand government's ability to influence the allocation of credit. The passage of Dodd-Frank in July 2010, also supported by every Democrat in the Senate, made that dream a reality.

In 1993, President Clinton had been unable to pass a comparatively modest $16 billion stimulus program. Democrats in 2009 passed a massive $787 billion stimulus program with every Democratic senator voting for it. And with the tacit support of Democratic senators who have blocked every bill, resolution or amendment that impeded any aspect of his regulatory agenda, President Obama has implemented the most massive expansion of federal regulatory authority since the Great Depression.

It is impossible for any Democratic senator running for re-election this year to credibly argue that he or she did not support the president's program or provide a critical vote to enact it. No Democratic candidate can argue that by electing him or her and sustaining the Democratic majority in the Senate, voters can hope to alter the president's program.

With his party's Senate supermajority, President Obama achieved a series of historic political victories. But the question most voters will have to answer on Nov. 4 is whether this program has been good for working Americans. We think the answer is clear. As is well known, the Obama recovery is the weakest in postwar history. If the Obama recovery had been as strong as the average of the previous 10 postwar recoveries, 13.9 million more Americans would be working today and the average real per capita income of every man, woman and child in America would be $6,308 higher.

But the real scorecard on the Senate Democrats elected in 2008 is in the Census Bureau's Current Population Survey data. While all Democrats claimed to be champions of the middle class and defenders of minorities and women, census data show how their program did not live up to their campaign promises.

Since the Senate Democratic Class of 2008 took control, the average real income of the poorest one-fifth of American families has declined every year, falling to $15,534 in 2012 from $16,962 in 2008 (the 2013 data will be released Sept. 16).

But the truth about that, is coming from you, it's "My opinion, my opinion, you can't handle my opinion."...because the FACT is,you rarely can produce any proof to base your opinions on...So let me rephrase your quote to be even more accurate, "My delusion, my delusion..you can't handle my baseless delusions!"

There, glad we cleared that up!

Goofy,

"Truth! You can't HANDLE the truth!!"

(You wouldn't know the truth if it bit you on the ass. As it has many times and you didn't even notice!)

(Typo in the other one...delete it)

Not all...just those who let the party boss's 'bogus crusaders' do their thinking for them according to an ideology that even the 'bogus crusaders' DON'T believe in!! ...So the yakking parrots can feel important, and delude themselves that they are accomplishing something....when hardly any of it is based on truth..truth...you know truth??
....lost in the interpretation.

Is that supposed to be an opposing opinion??...or just a lack of one??

(Wait a minute, or an hour, you'll think of a spin!)...but the story IS the story and history is the history..complete with pictures!

I know...try insulting your way out of this one....it's never worked before, so why not give it another try.

God Forbid you should even attempt to comment on the topic!

You're that easily brain-washed, Goofy?

Dante said that the lowest level in Hell is reserved for those who, when confronted with a moral issue, don't choose one way or the other, refuse to get involved, and simply remain "colorlessly neutral."

"Look at them once," Dante said, "then pass on and think of them no more."

"Takes one to know one, 'TIA',Or is it 'Actual Scientist', or 'Guest, Not Don Firth' today?"

'Cecil' and 'lansing', though that is not their real names are musician friends of mine, who vouched, or endorsed what I posted (which I don't even remember what it was about)for me, to some brain-dead arguers on Mudcat, using my computer.
Get over it!

Monty Python time!!

First read this.....then the clip from the article, below!

"Reaction to even a veiled suggestion of changes to the Religious Freedom Restoration Act was quick and strong: "Changing RFRA because some disagree with one particular application of the law would set a dark precedent by undermining the fundamental principle of religious freedom for all, even for those whose religious beliefs may be unpopular at the moment," said the signers of a joint letter to House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio), Majority Leader Rep. Harry Reid (D-Nevada); House Minority Leader Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-California) and Minority Leader Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-Kentucky). "Congress has never passed legislation with the specific purpose of reducing Americans' religious freedom. It should not consider doing so now."

Pelosi is both a hypocrite and a liar!

A Federal judge just ordered the IRS to hand them over or provide explanations, under oath, and gave them 30 days to comply.
