The rich and powerful together with the GOP, the bigoted, the racists and the misguided have waged a consumptive and gigantic battle against Obama, the Democratic Party, main stream America, and the very concept of Democracy.
From the time that Barack Obama campaigned for the Democratic Nomination for President to a year and a half into his Presidency, he has been hammered by the GOP, the media, big corporations, the Tea Party and even some Democrats for not being enough. Every day there is an attack on Obama for never being enough of something. Can we ever be satisfied?
As the disaster in the Gulf continues, President Obama has said the buck stops with him, which is refreshing because Obama is actually man enough to step up to the plate in the midst of it all and in spite of the criticism for the sake of the country. Obama has become the Cleaner in Chief.
This week, President Obama made it clear at a DCCC fundraiser that Republicans are to blame not only for driving the economy into a ditch, but also bringing Washington to a standstill. With the primaries coming up on Tuesday, it is time for Democrats to step and take the first step towards making sure that Republicans don't get the chance to put us back in the ditch.
A popular argument on the Right and by some in the same proclaimed enlightened Left is that Obama campaigned on the word "change," but they argue that everything is still the same or in other words a continuation of the Bush policies. However, this is simply not true, and Obama is compiling the record to refute it.
Our President, in just a few short weeks, is managing to address multiple disasters and crisis situations at the same time. Response to what may become the largest and most significant and dramatic oil spill disaster in our nation's history is now being blamed on the Obama administration by the "usual suspects on the "Right"' instead of the big oil company, BP that caused it, while at the same time keeping America safe from terrorism.
After the historic Nuclear Arms Reduction Treaty signed the previous week between the United States and Russia, the seemingly logical next step was to get as many nations together as possible to be on the same page. The threat of nuclear weapons getting into the wrong hands like al Qaeda or rogue nations like North Korea or Iran, who are currently developing nuclear weapons, should be of grave concern to the entire world.
President Obama is exercising his mojo and is on the move. For a little more than a year now, Obama has been criticized by America for doing nothing. The left says he's not doing enough and has compromised too much. The right says he has taken over America on one hand with too much government control and power while on the other hand, claiming he is too weak to do anything, but Obama keeps moving forward.
Tuesday’s special US Senate election in Massachusetts presents a critical moment for both the Obama administration and the Democratic Party, which is why Democrats need to mobilize to prevent Republicans from possibly derailing the Obama agenda.
2009 began with the inauguration of our new and first African American President, Barack Obama, and became the year that GOP and the Extreme Right Wing of the party became energized and very proactive in its goal to be destructive to our new President and his administration and policies by any means necessary.
In just a few short days Santa will be delivering presents to the nice and coal to the naughty. We were lucky enough to get a sneak peek at Santa’s list to see what some of America’s top political figures can be expecting for Christmas. There will be some surprises under the tree for Barack Obama, Nancy Pelosi, Michelle Bachmann, Sarah Palin and others.
Donny Deutsch was on MSNBC's Morning Joe this morning, and in response to a new poll that found that Rush Limbaugh and Glenn Beck are the most influential conservatives in America, he said, "These are all entertainers. They're circus acts." Deutsch was asked about Lou Dobbs, and he said Dobbs is a racist.
The book Sarah From Alaska by Scott Conroy, and Shushannah Walshe, who were both embedded with Sarah Palin's vice presidential campaign, manages to accomplish the seemingly impossible. It offers an objective account of Sarah Palin's fast rise and abrupt resignation. There is lots here for both Palin's fans and critics.
Sarah Palin has been all over the media since her book came out, but the one network that she hasn't been on is CBS. Palin's reps have turned down requests from Katie Couric, and the former Alaska governor is still harboring a grudge against late night host David Letterman. Palin has made it clear that she is open to all requests, except CBS.
Sarah Palin was on FNC's Hannity tonight, where things took an interesting turn when she gave her opinion on the Ft. Hood shootings. Palin stated that the shootings were an act of terrorism, and she claimed that it could have been prevented if the military would have engaged in racial profiling.
In an interview with Newsmax, Sarah Palin floated Fox News host Glenn Beck's name as her running mate for 2012. Palin said, "But Glenn Beck I have great respect for. He's a hoot. He gets his message across in such a clever way." Apparently, Palin's qualifications for a running mate include that they be a "hoot."
On Fox News Radio's Brian and The Judge show, Judge Andrew Napolitano unloaded with both barrels on Sarah Palin. Napolitano said, "I just don't think she possess the mental capacity to be the President of the United States. She's a goofball."
Former CNN anchor Lou Dobbs was on the Today show this morning talking about the potential 2012 Republican presidential candidates. When it came to Sarah Palin, Dobbs said, "Would I consider voting her? Frankly based on what I have seen, personally no." Things are looking bad for Sarah, when even Lou Dobbs says no thanks.
Remember the weeks of indigent outrage in both the right wing and mainstream media when the Obama administration said that Fox News is not a news organization? It turns out that Sarah Palin did a little blackballing of her own, when she banned CBS from covering her resignation speech. Where is the criticism of Palin?
Sec. of State Hillary Clinton was on NBC's Meet The Press today. At the end of the interview she was asked about Sarah Palin's comment in her book about the possibility of sitting down for a cup of coffee with Clinton. She said, "I'm ready to have a cup of coffee. Maybe I can make a case on some of the issues that we disagree on."
