Bush 41, A Man of Character?

Was it not that Bush 41 reneged because the Democrats promised if he raised taxes they would cut spending and he, silly man, believed them. He did his part, and THEY reneged, angering the public who trusted Bush and ultimately giving us 'today.'

I'm in favor of a part-time Congress. It was never intended to be a career for anyone any more than a welfare mother's birth canal was meant to be a career path. Just sayin'.

" ... the stupidly slandered Americans constituted the one demographic too smart to fall for the deceit at the heart of the Affordable Care Act." The PROBLEM is that there were more Americans who were NOT slandered by Gruber's assessment of them--these are the morons who voted Obama into office TWICE. They were SO potent, they share the Time Person of the Year award Obama won after his second election. The "smarter side" was outnumbered.
Did he retire or was he defeated? Is this sour grapes or the words of a principled Democrat (becoming more and more of an oxymoron)?
For the first time in a LONG time, the Nobel Peace Prize winner is deserving. Arafat, Gore, Obama -- their prizes were given for no good reason. in Obama's case, he was a blank slate and the prize was given in HOPES that he would turn out to be something he promised. Looking back, the committee was sucked into the Hopey-Changey bee ess that the American voters fell into as well.
I've heard John Boehner on exactly ONE radio show being interviewed by a substitute host (the retiring congressman John Campbell on the Hugh Hewitt show. Speaker Boehner has never accepted Hugh Hewitt's invitation to be interviewed by him). He doesn't seem interested in communicating with the people who elected him to power OR the people for whom he works, which would be ALL OF US TAXPAYERS who are sick and tired of being gouged again and again by higher taxes. I don't think we care a whit about what the Democrats or the MSM think of the conservatives. RINOs are out to get the Tea Party because that group represents the small government preference along with lower taxes, and that means a loss of power for those (like Boehner, McConnell, Graham and others) who are more RINO than anything else. I don't think these men, having breathed the rarefied air of the ivory tower of public service for YEARS, realize what they are doing to the party that they started in. They are like the dog breeder who is "kennel blind" and cannot see the faults of his product.
I suffer through that idiotic commercial and then the sound doesn't work on the Colbert clip. That's two minutes I'll never get back again.

Lots of us continue to bang our heads against the wall until we finally realize that it feels good when we stop--and so we eventually stop for good. My cause (not through writing, necessarily, unless it was "letters to the editor" of the local paper) was public education. The paper was anti-union and this was California, where teachers unions rule EVERYTHING relating to education. The Hell with the kids, give the teachers more money. That way the teachers won't be expected to do the impossible with nothing. They'll have "something" more in their paychecks each month. I agree with you about Obama's legitimacy to run for POTUS. If he were a qualified candidate as outlined by the rules of the game, why were his records sealed? And if they were sealed, where are they and when is someone going to make them public? I realize "sealed" means "not to be opened," but the Obama Thugocracy doesn't seem to care about rules when it applies to THEM. Surely there is someone somewhere who loves this country and can "make it stop." Thank you for all you have done for those of us who are regular readers of Town Hall dot com. I will bookmark your website and follow you there. Best wishes.
John McCain has Stockholm Syndrome. His insistence on "reaching across the aisles" and being bipartisan is proof positive, to me. Socialists are like Islamists--they will lie to your face and leave you standing in the breeze. Bush 41 raised taxes in exchange for Socialist promises to cut spending. They didn't follow through on THEIR promise and we got two terms of Bill Clinton, which were palatable because the GOP took over Congress. In '09 we had Socialists in charge of everything and where did that get us? Appeasement and, as Ted Cruz said, friends that do not trust us, enemies that do not fear us. Obama is a laughingstock, and by extension, so are the low-information voters who follow closely behind him.
I wish we could move on from the "we're not racist because we have a two-term black president" mantra. First, Obama isn't black, he's half-Arab. his ancestors OWNED slaves. Second, he was elected because of a complicit media and a GOP candidate in '08 who has nominated because it was "his turn" and in '12 because Obama had ENORMOUS help from Candy COWley (not a typo--the woman is a beast) and a GOP base that stayed home on election day. Mitt Romney would make a SUPERIOR president compared to the racebaiter in the White House now--but one cannot argue against statistically impossible election results (130 percent of the population in Port Ste. Lucie showing up to vote; 100 percent of the voters in Cuyahoga County, OH, voting Democrat, etc). Having Karl Rover (also not a typo) laughing about that in a recent interview with another RINO Hugh Hewitt didn't help the cause either. Obama's minions cheated and, well, here we are. White guilt is just as responsible for the rise of Obama as hateful rhetoric that encourages voting for someone due to skin color instead of character.

"We've lowered standards and hired people who are under-qualified or not suited psychologically to be cops in the first place." We've used Affirmative Action to insist that there are cops of the correct race or skin tone rather than making certain these people fit the qualifications and proper profile FIRST, then belong to the proper ethnic group second. It has happened in education, medicine, and academia as well. Dumbing down everything doesn't elevate anything.
