As a conservative Republican in New York State, I have long understood my vote doesn’t matter. Yes, Reagan won the Empire State back in 1984, however it is quite clear that unless the entire lower tier of the state were to sink in the ocean, we Republicans do not matter statewide.
Chomsky: “I don’t usually admire Sarah Palin, but when she was making fun of this ‘hopey changey stuff,’ she was right, there was nothing there.”
Thales of Miletus, considered one of the first philosophers, said, that hope is the most abundant thing in the world, because even when you have absolutely nothing, hey, at least you still have hope.
The old man in a rumpled linen suit at the end of the bar stood out like a weed at a garden show. All around him the young couples and swinging singles, so impressionable and so eager to impress, went on laughing and talking about whatever they laugh and talk about.
Presidential campaigns often reduce themselves to words or phrases, slogans or gaffes.
President Obama thanks supporters in Michigan.
The RNC's latest ad shows Obama's descent "from 'Hope' to Hypocrisy."
President Barack Obama has certainly changed the tone in Washington. What used to be a town well-known for partisan bickering has been transformed into a 24/7 hate fest. Obama may bemoan the rancor in Congress every time the cameras are rolling, but make no mistake, this acidic atmosphere is by his own design.
Appearances can be deceptive. In this age of open disclosure and the Internet, one would think we have access to all knowledge, but we don't. We are still at the mercy of those in charge of providing any given piece of information. Unless we are satisfied with the lop-sided information being spoon-fed to us by those having an agenda, it is up to us to do our own digging for the truth.
There is a sense of hopelessness in America right now. You can hear it when you talk to friends and listen to their fear of losing a job. Set aside getting a raise or promotion, they’re grateful just to get a paycheck.
I wonder what kind of campaign voodoo Obama’s going to foist on young voters to get them to buy his “Hope and Change” (again) in 2012?
Whether it was in a manufacturing plant or an elementary school, Obama was never without his trusty device. That’s probably why his most recent appointment of Alan Krueger (the Tim Geithner clone), is another result of not looking ahead.
S&P downgrading our debt rating to AA+ and Wall Street tumbling ought to let you know that we have a debt problem in Washington, but let’s bring that problem home!
Apparently what he really meant was 'change which may or may not come sometime in the next 3 years...'
If nothing is passed to lower government spending and increase the debt ceiling, America will still be America. The only difference will be that the ridiculous debt ceiling that “always” gets raised finally will hold firm and politicians won’t have to wait for a balanced budget amendment.
According to House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, Obama is pretty adept at tossing temper tantrums
If Obama’s policies are so successful and if the country is doing so well, why do Americans see this growing desperation in Team Obama?
Generally speaking President Barack Obama has been a disaster on foreign affairs, national security, negotiation with allies, and sending the wrong messages to our enemies.
