Former DNC Chairman Howard Dean says Republicans will have to change their philosophy and not just their ground game in order to win in the future. Dean says conservatives can not sell hate of women, gays and immigrants and expect to win elections. HOWARD DEAN: The big problem is though, that ground game is not enough to win. The fact of the matter is you can not peddle hate of immigrants, gays and lesbians, and women by saying that God´s will was to make women pregnant when they were raped.
Comments: I guess Dean must have missed the "philosophy" of the Democrats in the union beating up innocent people. s/o What is so terribly disturbing is that you never hear Republicans fighting back against these continuous lies and misrepresentations. It´s no wonder we lost.
Christians are so blessed to KNOW right from wrong (and I mean Christians, not those pretend-to-be christians). The rest of the world is left with opinions, emotions, what the majority wants or who happens to have the most power.
FTA: "The big problem is though, that ground game is not enough to win. The fact of the matter is you cannot peddle hate of immigrants, gays and lesbians, and women by saying that God´s will was to make women pregnant when they were raped."
Republicans don´t hate immigrants, gays or women! That is what the Democrat Propaganda Machine is churning out and in typical fashion; Howard beats this straw man to the best of his ability. It´s also being accepted by the ignorant public as fact! IT ISN´T TRUE! It is a lie... IT IS PROPAGANDA... PROPAGANDA that is no different than what Hitler sold to the German population that allowed him to kill 6+ million Jews with the German citizen´s approval.
I have no problems with LEAGAL immigrants, But I do have A BIG problem with illegal invaders (so called undocumented citizens) as do most people and if you check mr dean the stupid republicans have given into to your demands for citizenship for these felons more than the democrapts have. As to woman I do believe Republicans treat woman as equals more than the democrapts do, we just don´t feel its a right to pay for them to be sluts, with free contraceptives so they can have irresponsible sex when ever they feel like it. And as for sexual deprived men and women its a choice and why should someones choice be made a civil right and become a protected class of people... I really guess animal farm has come to fruition, some people are more equal than others.
How to deny a negative - I don´t give losers, whiners & beggars the time of day. That means I IGNORE them as much as possible - their opinions, conversations & etc. are met with stone silence. I do not engage them at all. It makes them uncomfortable & they cannot stand being ignored. Freezing & isolating these types cannot be construed as "beating up on" anyone. If I don´t initiate an action, I have not "beat up" on anyone. Sometimes just looking through them is all that is needed - you cannot be accused of anything. Remember this when your lib relatives come for Christmas & try to lecture you about their virtues.
Dean and other Democrats make these spurious charges under the guise of helping improve us. Mr Dean, we need no improvement, since we don´t do the deeds with which you slander us. We all personally know gays, immigrants and women and want no harm to come to them. Having a difference of opinion regarding one thing or another isn´t beating up on people. It is another way of thinking in order resolve an issue. In all cases no harm comes to any of these people/groups. The resolution might bring some political peace to our society, but we know for sure that isn´t what they want. The turmoil is the Democrats stock in trade.
And the Democrats have to change their philosophy of kidnapping and killing small school children. And their horrible animal sacrifices. And let´s not forget their secret murder salons hidden in secret caves.
Hey, if this is going to be a lying contest I´m sure I can win.
Disagree with what a Democrat says or say something that he doesn´t want to hear, and he immediately jumps to hate, you´re a hater, end of discussion. This is particularly true if you disagree with the intolerant gay left.
SOUTH FLORIDA — The 2014 midterm elections are less than one year away, and the day after the 2014 elections begins the 2016 presidential election. While the Obama liberal agenda is collapsing, Republicans must not get complacent. The only thing that matters is winning elections and governing. The Super Bowl winner gets a trophy and a parade. The loser gets garbage. Politics is no different. There is winning, and there is garbage. President Obama has used his 2012 election victory to ruthlessly punish those who did not vote for him. He treats half the country like garbage, and the only way
Members of the House Intelligence Committee learned in a closed-door briefing yesterday that more contractors are corroborating the report that the Obama administration had plenty of time to respond to the attack on the Benghazi diplomatic facility. Rep. Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) called the new information “outstanding testimony.” “And essentially what they were able to prove today, they basically backed up the other contractors who were on the ground in the two previous hearings. So this is an ongoing investigation,” Nunes said Tuesday evening. “And I think they gave us a lot of good leads today and I feel very comfortable
If you liked the security holes in the basic Healthcare.gov system that has experts warning consumers to stay away from the web portal, you’ll love what the IRS will have when their ObamaCare system goes on line. Politico reports that the Inspector General warned in July the IRS that its tax-credit disbursement system was at risk for fraud, and that the agency hadn’t even completed a fraud-mitigation plan: The Internal Revenue Service has successfully finished testing systems to accurately calculate tax credits under Obamacare but needs to improve its controls to avoid problems with fraud as the agency begins doling
During Politico’s “Women Rule” event this morning, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi joined her daughter Alexandra on stage to discuss her former duties as a full-time mom and eventual road to Congress. Alexandra shared how her mom used to lead carpools, cook and clean all day and even win prizes for her cake baking. Being defined as domestic clearly made the powerful Minority Leader a bit squeamish. “I was a 50s teenager, I wasn’t a 50s housewife.” Despite Pelosi trying to distance herself from her former role, she did in fact do motherly things. Then, she "got a life." The Minority
"Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive." -- C.S. Lewis ”One of the overriding points of Liberal Fascism is that all of the totalitarian ‘isms’ of the left commit the fallacy of the category error. They all want the state to be something it cannot be. They passionately believe the government can love you, that the state can be your God or your church or your tribe or your parent or your village or all of these things at once. Conservatives occasionally make this mistake, libertarians never do, liberals
President Obama has begun a new 20 day effort to sell the Affordable Care Act. And while his press conference on Tuesday was less defensive and more forward looking than his previous comments, it very much remains to be seen whether this new initiative will help sell the law or assuage very real concerns about its efficacy and viability. Put simply, while the website may be functioning more effectively than it has previously it is by no means clear that the implementation of the law itself will go smoothly. The transfer of information from the site to insurers hasn’t been shown to
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) said Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) will “cave in” on immigration reform, expressing confidence that a proposal will pass the House sometime next year. Reid on Tuesday said Republicans would sign on to a deal if they ever want to see a GOP president again. “If the Republicans ever want to elect a Republican president again, they’re going to have to get right with the Hispanic and Asian community who, by more than 70 percent, voted for Obama last time,” Reid told the Las Vegas Sun. Reid argued many GOP House members do not care
President Barack Obama has always had a broad base of support among America’s youngest voters. In 2012, 60 percent of voters aged 18-29 took to the polls to reelect the president. According to a Harvard University’s Institute of Politics poll released on Wednesday, however, many young voters are regretting the votes they cast just over one year ago. 11 percent more young adults, aged 18-29, disapprove of the president’s performance in office than they did last year. Only 41 percent of millennials expressed approval with Obama’s job performance. Of the 55 percent of young voters who admitted to casting their ballot
President Barack Obama´s administration has found a short-term fix to pay insurance companies for plans selected on HealthCare.gov, the not-yet-complete government website used to shop for insurance required under Obama´s healthcare program. The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) has not yet finished building the part of the website that would transfer billions of dollars in subsidies for plan premiums and cost-sharing payments to insurance companies. (Snip) Julie Bataille, a spokeswoman for CMS, said the government will make the payments to insurers for premium tax credits and cost sharing on time.
Newsweek ended the print edition of the paper at the end of 2012 under the leadership of Tina Brown, but starting early next year the long-running magazine will be pumping out physical copies again, but don’t expect the old Newsweek, because according to the paper’s editor-in-chief, it’s going to be more of a subscriber-driven “premium product” this time around. The New York Times broke the news of the big move late Tuesday, and Newsweek editor-in-chief Jim Impoco explained that instead of advertisers, the paper would “depend more heavily on subscribers,” who would have to pay more, but they believe it
President Obama´s chief of staff Tuesday declared that Obamacare´s website is “getting back on track,” and excused the difficulty reforming health care by declaring it harder to accomplish than peace in the Middle East. “Reforming our healthcare system is not an easy task,” said Denis McDonough, White House chief of staff, at a health care forum sponsored by Georgetown University and the health-focused law firm Arent Fox. “I’ve worked on many complicated issues: Middle East peace, Iran and budget deals. And I can tell everybody in this room that reforming the health care system is the single most complicated issue I’ve faced,”
President Obama´s uncle said at a deportation hearing Tuesday that Obama stayed with him while he was a student at Harvard Law School in the 1980s -- despite the White House having said that Obama never met the man. Onyango “Omar” Obama, 69, was arrested for drunk driving in 2011 and faced deportation after living in the United States for five decades. The judge decided to let the Kenyan national remain in the United States. According to the Boston Globe, Omar Obama also made the following claim: Maria Sacchetti @mariasacchetti Follow He testified that president stayed w/ him in Cambridge
Rep. Jim McDermott (D-Wash.) said on MSNBC’s “PoliticsNation” Wednesday that when Jesus fed five thousand people with five loaves of bread and two fish, “he didn’t charge food stamps.” “When Jesus had those five loaves and two fishes, he didn´t charge food stamps. He didn´t ask anybody how much money they had. He fed them because they were hungry, and that´s really where we ought to be,” McDermott said in response to Republican critics of the SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program). In September, the House approved a plan by Republicans to cut $39 billion in food stamps over the next
The nation’s view of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, colored by the horrific Benghazi assassination of the U.S. ambassador to Libya on her watch, has suddenly turned upside down, with more now holding an unfavorable opinion of the likely 2016 presidential candidate. A new YouGov/Economist poll found Clinton, whose approval ratings have typically been sky high, with an unfavorable rating of 48 percent, more than the 46 percent who have a favorable opinion of her. The YouGov pollsters said that the change in American attitudes toward Clinton "suggests that negative press surrounding the tragic
President Obama will cast growing income inequality and a decline in economic mobility as a “fundamental threat to the American dream” during a speech Wednesday in Washington. The speech will serve as an early preview for next year’s State of the Union address, according to a White House official, who said Obama would focus much of his energy over the next three years on the issue. “The decisions we make over the next few years will determine whether or not our children will grow up in an America where, if you work hard, you can get ahead,” the official said.
Bill Clinton, the cliché goes, was the first black president, no matter his skin color. That being the case, Barack Obama is not the first black president, or the first African-American president, if you prefer, but the first hippie president. Clinton’s southern background and lifestyle were indeed more typically black, just as Obama’s was more typically hippie. And we’re not just talking about the “Choom gang” here, scarfing “Maui Wowie” on the sands of Oahu. We’re talking about all of it, the whole multi-culti-missing-white-mother-vanished-Kenyan-father-anti-imperialist-America-is-always-the-enemy-and-don’t-you-forget-it-nine-yards. And like most hippie culture as I knew and experienced it, it wasn’t about “peace and love.” Not
During a presentation at the White House in which President Barack Obama touted the benefits of the Affordable Care Act, the president declared that his signature health care reform law was not going to be repealed. This assertion led his administration members, his staff, and audience members to rise from their seats and give the president a standing ovation. Obama said that ACA opponents’ alternative to the health care reform law is to champion repeal and going back to the health care delivery system status quo ante. He specifically cited Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) who he said was asked directly for
A woman has revealed how difficult it is to eat healthily and stay full when living off an average food stamp budget. Melinda Moulton, from Huntington, Vermont, was one of 200 people to take part in the 3Squares Challenge, which saw her living for a week on just $36 worth of food, or around $1.71 a meal. Opting to try and eat as healthily as possible, Ms Moulton resorted to cheap foods like yogurt for breakfast, two handfuls of peanuts for lunch and lentil stew for dinner, all of which left her unsatisfied.´I don´t know how people do it,´ said
Good stuff from Jonathan Turley at today’s House hearing on executive power, although I regret that I couldn’t find a more user-friendly format for you to watch. There’s no compilation clip; you’ll have to make do with the C-SPAN embed by fast-forwarding to the time cues I give you and being patient while the vid buffers (and buffers, and buffers).(Snip)That brings us to point two: Even if Congress can’t stop Obama, the courts can. The problem there, though, says Turley, is that O and the DOJ have argued successfully in many cases that no one has standing to sue him
CNN host wondered out loud on his show this evening whether the physically unfit Chris Christie could follow the "perfect physical specimen" Barack Obama into the White House: "After the perfect Barack Obama, who´s a perfect physical specimen to many people´s eyes, does it matter?" Morgan asked his guest. "Or is actually somebody very different, someone who´s much more of a regular kind of guy who likes cheeseburgers and beer, but appears to be a straight talker, somebody perhaps more of a straight talker than it appears Barack Obama turned out to be?"
Nobody could accuse the press of ignoring the fiasco-on-a-server that is HealthCare.gov. The Obamacare website’s woes are dominating coverage on the network news, the cable talk shows, the blogs and, of course, high-octane websites like POLITICO. But did the press do a good job of covering the Affordable Care Act before the health care exchanges went online—sort of—on Oct. 1? Were we adequately warned of the troubles that were to come? And now that HealthCare.gov’s problems are headline news, is the coverage of it any better? Sure, one can find a few examples of one news outlet or another warning of impending
MSNBC´s Chris Matthews will interview President Barack Obama this Thursday, the network announced Tuesday. The interview is part of Matthews´ "Hardball College Tour," and will take place at American University in Washington, D.C. According to a news release from MSNBC, Matthews, along with university students, will "discuss a variety of topics with the president including voter suppression, healthcare, the decline of confidence in the government and the overall political dysfunction in Washington." On Monday our colleagues Carrie Budoff Brown and Jonathan Allen reported that the White House is launching a coordinated campaign to return attention to why the Affordable Care Act
Nineteen people stood behind President Obama on stage in the Executive Office Building Tuesday as the president kicked off a new campaign to promote Obamacare. One of those people, a young Florida woman named Monica Weeks, introduced Obama after telling the story of being struck with Crohn´s Disease at age 19 and receiving expensive treatments for several years that were covered by her parents´ health care plan — because Obamacare allowed her to remain on that plan until age 26. Now, Weeks said, she has coverage through a job. "The Affordable Care Act gives young adults who are just starting
Continued global warming poses a risk of rapid, drastic changes in some human and natural systems, a scientific panel warned Tuesday, citing the possible collapse of polar sea ice, the potential for a mass extinction of plant and animal life and the threat of immense dead zones in the ocean. At the same time, some worst-case fears about climate change that have entered the popular imagination can be ruled out as unlikely, at least over the next century, the panel found. These include a sudden belch of methane from the ocean or the Arctic that would fry the planet, as
