The Dems are always asking for "revenue". Here's a suggestion. 179,000 jobs should mean at least $1B in tax receipts from in FICA from those jobs alone. GOP then simply says approve Keystone and sequester cuts can be reduced by $1B. More reductions can occur with increased licensing from drilling in the Gulf of MX, ANWR, off shore etc. And then there's approval for fracking. Lots of new revenue w/o tax increases.

Our Useless White House Press Corps

While I agree that it is the white house press corpses, as Obama would read from the teleprompter, I would prefer that they come back to life and do their job.
While Hill makes some good points here I think he misses the correct argument which is who cares and so what? Is using a gun an offensive or defensive? Who cares. The egalitarians should love guns as it equalize the weak and strong. Mostly I think of the Indiana Jones scene where Harrison Ford pulls out a gun and shoots the swordsman instead of trying to fight. Was IJ offensive or defensive. Who cares?

Obama AWOL during Benghazi Attack

Actually before disappearing (h/t Breitbart) "Obama said in October that he had given "three directives" as soon as he found out "what was going on"--i.e. as the attacks were ongoing: ...the minute I found out what was going on I gave three very clear directives. Number one, make sure we are securing our personnel and that we are doing whatever we need to. Number two, we are going to investigate exactly what happened and make sure it doesn't happen again. Number three, find out who did this so we can bring them to justice." Obviously Pannetta forgot about this. Time to remind and Obama the credit he is due.
The 10th commandment is clear about the immorality of the "make someone else pay philosophy" as it says "You shall not covet your neighbor’s house. You shall not covet your neighbor’s wife, or his male or female servant, his ox or donkey, or anything that belongs to your neighbor". Please inform you pastor about it and ask him to inform your congregation. And this is not just a moral philosophy but what works the best for everyone.

Obama does like some jobs, for example jobs in gun stores have to be way up now.

The problem with Simpson-Bowles is not dem opposition but Boehner opposition. Charen is right but GOP should not vote for tax increases. Here is a 2 step process that Boehner should be ok with: 1. Pass extension of Bush tax rates in house. Get all GOP senators to sign a letter they will vote for it and demand Reid hold a vote. Reid will refuse but GOP position on taxes is clear. This might even make the evening news. 2. Bring up Senate bill extending tax rates except for high earners in house. 30-40 GOP vote present so that dems have an opportunity to pass. There still will be automatic cuts in spending which is what we want for now.

No Time to Give Up in the Fiscal Fight

The GOP should stop negotiating with Obama in private. Instead first the house should pass a bill that maintains tax rates, ie Bush tax cuts, and makes modest but real spending cuts in 2013, e.g. ~$50B, $25B in defense, $25B elsewhere, e.g. unemployment benefits. If all 47 GOP senators vote for this they only need to convince 4 dems to support (should be a budget bill not subject to filibuster). Obama may blink then and sign. If not he owns what happens. Assuming senate dems do not switch then GOP could say that dems in house can write a bill that does whatever to taxes and does not increase spending and at least 30-40 GOP will vote present allowing dems to pass. A risk yes but dems own what happens
In 2003 Bush signed into law the ban on partial birth abortion. The liberals have not pushed back - why? Because even libertarians and independents understand that sticking a knife in the skull of a baby almost out of the womb is murder. The GOP should say they will fight against any efforts to repeal the ban and make democratic candidates declare their stand just like the dems forced GOP candidates declare their stance on abortion after rape. (As far as rape goes the GOP should say they are believe that all rapists should go to jail w/o parole). Finally the GOP should state clearly they oppose all public funding of abortion.

Romney Was Not the Problem

Romney ran the worst campaign for POTUS ever and Coulter should apologize. Even she cannot defend Romney's campaign rather she attack Ronald Reagan and his successful presidential campaigns. A quick summary of 3 big mistakes by Romney 1. Libya - This should have been a huge winner but after bringing it up in the 2nd debate he called Obama liar. While Obama may not have lied strictly Romney never defended himself and then ran from Libya like it was radioactive. 2. Romney alienated much of the GOP including Mike Huckabee and Chris Christie. Romney needed help but thought he was too smart. Paul Ryan was relegated to Siberia or somewhere. At least McCain let Palin be seen. 3. Statements such as 47%, birther jokes, severe conservatism
I re-read Matthew 5:1-12, i.e. the Beatitudes, and missed the part about "citizens" and "gifts". I recommend you read again and fill me in. Also, while you have your dusty Bible open and turn to Exodus 20:17, i.e the 10th commandment. Please read and pray that God will guide your heart. Exodus 20:17 "“You shall not covet your neighbor’s house. You shall not covet your neighbor’s wife, or his male or female servant, his ox or donkey, or anything that belongs to your neighbor.”
