It is impossible to measure global temperature directly. Global temperature can only be estimated based on averaging temperatures measured at numerous locations around the globe. It is unlikely that the locations used to compute the average temperatures actually ever give an accurate measure of the actual mean global temperature. Any statistical estimate of any variable such as global temperature has a level of uncertainty. Ever hear the GW crowd mention the confidence limits on the temperature values they cite?
"Also, nearly all studies show that middle-income wage earners are the biggest beneficiaries of corporate tax cuts." Why wouldn't they? Corporations get the money to payy any corporate income tax from consumers. Who are the largest block of consumers? The middle class. Regarding Obama and democrats pushing a higher minimum wage, How well has this worked out in the past? Not very well, but they still keep calling for a higher minimum wage. Insanity is said to be doing the same thing over and over , and expecting a different result. Someone should do a study on the effects and effectiveness of past increases in the minimum wage.

"It is hard to explain how a country in which conservatives outnumber liberals could have elected a far-left Congress and a far-left President of the United States, without taking into account how rare are Republicans able and willing to develop the skills of articulation." The statistics that say that conservatives out number liberals, and that are used to claim that the US is a "Center Right" nation are based on individuals self evaluations with no objective way to validate such evaluations. Many liberals think of themselves as main stream (moderate).

"I won't even bother with the question of his electability. That's what primaries are for." Actually, primaries do not necessarily select the candidate with the best chance of winning a general election because primary voters do not reflect the entire electorate.

Karl Marx would love Obama and his economic policy ideas. Fortunately. as with his prior budget proposals, this new proposal will never become law.
While 38 percent of Americans identify as conservative and 24 percent identify as liberal, these percentages are based on self evaluation with no objective basis for their self evaluation. Based on these self evaluations, many claim that America is a center right nation, so why have Democrats been so successful?

Give Obama Credit for Lower Gas Prices?

"Give Obama Credit for Lower Gas Prices?" NO!!!!!! Obama has done everything he could to raise not lower gas prices, but he will claim credit for the lower prices.
"And here's Lesson Two: The GOP candidate who wins the nomination and maybe the presidency in 2016 is the guy who most effectively reaches out to conservatives." Pardon me, but to win the election you have to get the most votes from the general voting population, and Conservatives by themselves cannot do that. Nominate a far right Conservative and lose the election. FYI the majority of voters are actually moderates with half leaning left and half leaning right.
Unfortunately the Illinois Legislature is still controlled by Democrats.
