"Unofficially, of course, she’s also drawing a tacit contrast between herself and Obama: Things with Russia were fine during his first term but once she left State, everything went to hell." Only on a left wing, political TV drama would that work. In politics to get a point across, it has to be hammered again and again, usually through ads and/or TV appearances. There's no way that she or her buddies are going to criticize BO publicly in such a way. For the general public, the BO foreign policy will be the Hillary foreign policy.
"We need to pass this so that we can know what's in it." -Nancy Pelosi D'oh!
I don't see how this is an issue for the White House. Obamacare is tremendously popular, right? So they should have no problem getting a law passed which ads subsidies to Oh, those drasted Republicans in the House. Well then, why don't the Democrats just make this the deciding issue for the 2014 elections. I'm sure that they'll have no problem winning back the House if they do so. /EndSarcasm>
I hope the GOP establishment doesn't commit political suicide in attacking Paul, in particular on foreign policy. The fact is that Paul, who favors a less interventionist approach around the world, is actually pretty close to what the general non-neocon public wants. They don't want Barry's incompetence, but they do favor staying out of things.
How? The National Guard serves under POTUS.
This is a political play. The National Guard is not a state milita, but rather part of the reserve components of the United States Armed Forces. I think that Perry is trying to set a political trap for Barry. Barry can countermand this order, however if he does, then it will draw more attention to the issue of border security, which Barry doesn't want. On the other hand, Barry is going to be getting pressure from La Raza and such to step in and stop this move by Perry.
Did anyone actually think that he would? Barry's visits are done solely to create positive spin. Do you think that he'd actually ever allow a photo op that reminds people how incompetent he's been on an issue?
If she's in decent health, Hillary will win the nomination easily as any alternatives are told "it's Hillary's time, not yours". The feminists have put in too much effort over the years to get a feminist elected President to have the Democratic Party actually allow Democratic voters pick their nominee. Will she win? That's up to the GOP. Is the GOP intent on fighting itself for the next 2 years over the issue of illegal immigration? If yes, she will win. If no, then there are plenty of electable candidates to beat her. My own belief is that Walker would beat her by 6 points or more.
In fairness, the Patricia Irelands of the world - these people spend so much time on TV that they really don't have any spare time to actually investigate the facts. We should just learn to be satisfied with talking points.
Am I the only one still miffed that Romney refused to call out BO as the radical that he truly is? Seriously, BO was running ads calling Romney a murderer and Romney was responding that BO "can't manage the economy". No mention of Barry's radical past. No mention of his Rev. Wright. He could have featured that quote that "single payer is our ultimate goal", but didn't. He could have focused on Obama's laziness in negotiations - as reported by Bob Woodward, but no. We're fighting for the survival of the greatest country on earth and Romney showed up to the fight with a water pistol.
This entire HHS scandal shows two things: 1) Liberals feel "entitled" to anything that they want. It's not as if Hobby Lobby refuses to hire anyone using contraception, the company just doesn't want to pay for something that it finds to be immoral. Why can't liberals just pay for things themselves? Why do they always feel that they're entitled to it? 2) The willingness that liberals have to impose their beliefs on others. They could have allowed "opt out" provisions, in the same way that conscientious objectors were allowed the ability to opt out of wars. There's only a fraction of companies that want to be identified as religiously conservative. And for those who didn't get their free contraception, the government could have just provided a tax deduction to employees of those companies.
