Dukakis seen as possible Senate
replacement if Kerry tapped for State

The Hill (DC), by Alexander Bolton

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 12/17/2012 6:08:37 AM

Former Massachusetts Gov. Michael Dukakis, the 1988 Democratic presidential nominee, may be headed back to the political spotlight as he’s considered a likely interim replacement for Sen. John Kerry (D-Mass.). President Obama is set to tap Kerry to succeed Hillary Clinton as secretary of State, according to media reports. This means Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick (D) needs to find someone to fill Kerry’s seat until a special election can be held in the late spring or early summer. Dukakis, who is 79, has remained politically active. He campaigned for Sen.-elect Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) this fall and teaches at Northeastern University.

The Demonrat party is so in love with mind numb "legacies" that it is laughable. No trouble with Dukakis following the communist Party Line.

#6, Reid has already said the cloture requirement, now 60, is going to be reduced, probably to 51. (Remember how the democrats cried and complained when the republicans threatened the ´nuclear option?´
Reid is using the nuclear option.
From beginning to end, I predict Jon Cary will be confirmed in one week. Same with Hagel at Defense.
Elections have consequences. Just watch the creepy creatures President Zero appoints to the U.S. Supreme Court.

The front men for this regime don´t matter much. This agenda has been carefully crafted for many years. While the prize is totalitarian control of the population, the vectors are:

1-"Redistribution & Fairness"
2-Retribution for "Colonial Exploitation"
3-Alienation of population into hostile sub groups.
4-Stigmatizing and shaming of the military.
5-Promotion of "Gangsta Culture".
6-Disarming the productive sector (Disarming of the new slaves).
7-Environmental extortion operations.
8-Fiscal & Monetary chaos.

I´d worry more if they were bringing in young and charming leading men types.

I guess they can only tolerate one of them.

OMG. The worst thing about Lucy.com is that you Ldotter´s are so fast with and all the good comments are already taken by the time I wake up, have my coffee and try to jump in.

With the re-election of Obummer, Obammy, Ozero, Obozo, etc., etc., etc. what is there to say? I feel like I´m in some kind of surrealistic B., C., or D movie. Can it be worse than this so called administration? Can it be more absurd or bizarre than this administration? More incompetent, more frightening? More totally detached from any kind of reality? Think of the bizarre people attempting to run and ruin our country. "The Won" himself and his shrill harridan and scold of a so called wife, Pelosi, Reid, Boxer, Feinstein, Jarrett, the shameful, strange and incompetent Supreme Court appointees Kagan and Sotomayor,the "concussed" Hildabeast/thing, and now, the lying, pompous, smug, arrogant and condescending traitor Jon Francois Carry.

Excuse me, but WTH is wrong with this country that we would vote ourselves into such a self-destructive death spiral with these absurd "leaders"? Is it just me or is this all too depressingly depressing. I´m hoping that this nightmare is just a dream, just a dream.

You guys are fun! This may sound sick, but maybe obama could appoint Senator Tricky Dicky Durbin who is no "spring chicken" as ambassador to Libya. He was sent to Turkey last year to assess their problems with their borders and helped Illinois (the brokest, bankrupt state) sell a prison to the Feds for Gitmo N. These "old, white" democrats are really somethin!

As if we should all be outraged by the behavior of this delusional crazy woman who thought there might be civil unrest in the near future and wanted some protection. That is the responsible thing to do, not a wacko thing to do! I see MSM fingerprints all over a lefty talking point of - paranoid wacko gun freak driving the story. So sad.

The current scenario in DC would have to work really hard to come up to the level of a D grade movie. Amusing that the dems, after accusing the RNC of ´old white men´ attacking Susan Rice, is now using ´old white men´ for their new nominations.

I guess that because these retreads are dems, that´s ok. And I also didn´t think it was possible for the Senate stature to decrease any more than it already has with dingy Harry in charge. Where do you go from bottom of the barrel?

If Deval Patrick picks Michael Dukakis at age 79, he is picking him to hold down the seat until someone else, maybe even Deval Patrick himself can run for the seat later in the year. That´s if Barack Obama does not pick Patrick for Attorney General if Eric Holder decides to leave or if a vacancy on the Supreme Court does not pop up that Obama can nominate Patrick to fill.

Advice to Democrats: Don´t say ´recovery´
Associated Press, by David Espo    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 4/18/2014 10:15:20 AM     Post Reply
WASHINGTON - Election-year memo to Democratic candidates: Don´t talk about the economic recovery. It´s a political loser. So say Democratic strategists in a blunt declaration that such talk skips over "how much trouble people are in, and doesn´t convince them that policymakers really understand or are even focusing on the problems they continue to face." In addition, Stan Greenberg, James Carville and others wrote that in head-to-head polling tests the mere mention of the word "recovery" is trumped by a Republican assertion that the Obama administration has had six years to get the economy moving and its policies haven´t worked. Coincidentally or not,

Iran Gets an Unlikely Visitor, an American
Plane, but No One Seems to Know Why
New York Times, by Michael Corkery*    Original Article

President Obama has warned that Iran is not open for business, even as the United States has loosened some of its punishing economic sanctions as part of an interim nuclear pact. Yet, on Tuesday morning, Iran had an unlikely visitor: a plane, owned by the Bank of Utah, a community bank in Ogden that has 13 branches throughout the state. Bearing a small American flag on its tail, the aircraft was parked in a highly visible section of Mehrabad Airport in Tehran. But from there, the story surrounding the plane, and why it was in Iran — where all but a few

Cost of Treatment May Influence Doctors
New York Times, by Andrew Pollack    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 4/18/2014 10:07:22 AM     Post Reply
Saying they can no longer ignore the rising prices of health care, some of the most influential medical groups in the nation are recommending that doctors weigh the costs, not just the effectiveness of treatments, as they make decisions about patient care. The shift, little noticed outside the medical establishment but already controversial inside it, suggests that doctors are starting to redefine their roles, from being concerned exclusively about individual patients to exerting influence on how health care dollars are spent. “We understand that we doctors should be and are stewards of the larger society as well as of the patient in

Hillary Clinton may end up deciding she wants to spend the 935 days until election 2016 making corporate speeches and spoiling her grandchild. Recent events have exposed weaknesses in Clinton’s supposedly impregnable armor, gaps through which a Democratic or Republican challenger could damage, perhaps even defeat her. The bad headlines to which she has been subjected are enough to make anyone—anyone who isn’t a Clinton—think twice about running for president. Look at the polls. This week’s Fox News poll has Clinton’s favorable rating at its lowest point in six years. She is at 49 percent favorable, 45 percent unfavorable—similar to her

Obama offers new insults,

Daily Caller, by Neil Munro    Original Article

President Barack Obama used his Thursday press conference to diagnose Republicans as fear-mongering, spiteful, obstinate, petulant and obstructive, as he again declared mission-accomplished in his effort to put the nation’s health-care under government control. “I recognize that their party is going through the stages of grief — anger and denial and all that stuff — and we’re not at acceptance yet,” Obama told reporters, where he announced that his Obamacare network had claimed 8 million subscribers. Obama coupled his passive-voice diatribe with his more-in-sorrow-than-anger promise that he “would much prefer a constructive conversation with the Republicans about how do we get some

The captain of a ferry that sank off the coast of South Korea Wednesday, leaving nearly 300 people missing, is under investigation as a possible criminal and was one of the first people to escape the doomed vessel, Coast Guard officials said. Lee Joon-seok, 69, left the ferry on a lifeboat 32 minutes after reporting an accident, officials said. The captain appeared on Korean television today, his face covered by a gray hoodie. “I am really sorry and deeply ashamed,” he said, as he was being questioned at the Mokpo Coast Guard Office. It´s unclear which of his actions could be considered criminal.

Soon after the tea party era began in Congress in 2011, President Obama and House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan each released their budgets, proposing how much the government should tax and spend over the rest of the decade. Three years into that budget showdown, Mr. Ryan and his Republican colleagues are winning. Government spending has slowed, and Mr. Obama’s plans for higher taxes and higher spending have fallen by the wayside. “The discretionary spending has in fact been driven by Republicans post-2010 clamping down,” said Douglas Holtz-Eakin, a former director of the Congressional Budget Office who is now president of the

After presenting at the Academy Awards this year, Kim Novak didn’t want to leave her house. The Hitchcock screen siren, 81, was too humiliated to venture from her home near the Rogue River in Oregon. She read the cruel posts and Internet snark about her appearance, and it was just too much. “It got to me like it gets kids and teenagers,” she told the Associated Press. The “Vertigo” actress, considered one of the great beauties in her day, posted a note on her Facebook wall Thursday, acknowledging that she’d gotten fat injections in her face and addressing her halted

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

WASHINGTON — Former President Jimmy Carter joined fellow Nobel laureates Wednesday in opposing Keystone XL, insisting that approving the pipeline would trigger “more climate upheaval” around the globe. In an open letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, Carter and the nine other Nobel Peace Prize winners bluntly warned the leaders: “Your decision on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline will define your climate legacy.” The missive, published as an advertisement in Politico, represents the first time Carter has taken a position on the $5.4 billion project and makes him the first former president to come

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.
