Obama unveils ´Organizing for Action´
Politico, by Glenn Thrush, Reid J. Epstein*

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 1/18/2013 12:57:30 PM

President Barack Obama on Friday announced the relaunch of his remaining campaign apparatus as a new tax-exempt group called Organizing for Action that will “play an active role” in “mobilizing around and speaking out in support of important legislation” during his second term. “We may have started this as a longshot presidential primary campaign in 2007, but it’s always been about more than just winning an election. Together, we’ve made our communities stronger, we’ve fought for historic legislation, and we’ve brought more people than ever before into the political process,” Obama wrote in an email to supporters.

Got a funny feeling about this.

There will be expectations this time around. "Hope and Change" isn´t going to cut it. There were a few surprises for some when taxes went up. And notice that this inauguration isn´t very well attended.

He just might be overreaching this time.

Cheney: Obama ‘much rather spend

Former Vice President Dick Cheney responded Monday night to the Obama administration’s proposal to cut the U.S. Army to its lowest point since before World War II. Calling into Fox News’ “Hannity,” Cheney declared the proposed cuts to be “absolutely dangerous” and “just devastating.” “I have not been a strong supporter of Barack Obama. But this really is over the top. It does enormous long-term damage to our military,” Cheney said. ”They act as though it is like highway spending and you can turn it on and off. The fact of the matter is he is having a huge impact

Main Line Health is the latest regional employer to announce plans to stop hiring smokers and to penalize current employees for lighting up. (Snip) Beginning May 1, job applicants must certify that they have not used such products in the previous 90 days, and will abstain during their employment. Those caught violating the policy will face disciplinary action that includes a smoking cessation program and random nicotine tests for two years. The system´s 10,000 current employees will have to certify whether they smoke. Those who haven´t kicked the habit will pay a $520 annual health plan surcharge beginning in 2015.

Destroyers of the common culture

Sometimes even a blind hog finds an acorn, and an unlikely press critic proves this humble proposition. Bill Maher, a famous purveyor of the politically correct who usually throws spitballs at conservatives, Christians and traditional values, thinks the Internet has destroyed the American culture. He would even bring back newspapers. The water cooler is good now only for dispensing bottled water, he says, and not for the exchange of opinions, some intelligent and some not, because “as a culture, we don’t have enough in common any more.” He doesn’t say anything about his own contributions to the damage of that

Democrats on the Federal Communications Commission say they have absolutely no plans to censor the press. "The commission has no intention of regulating political or other speech of journalists or broadcasters," FCC chairman Tom Wheeler wrote to a group of House Republicans on Feb. 14, after controversy erupted over an FCC project to question journalists to determine whether their articles, commentaries, and newscasts meet government-determined "critical information needs." (Snip) They no doubt believe what they say. So what explains the FCC´s -- or at least the Democratic side of the FCC´s -- willingness to embark on

Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro has a heap of problems: images of his thugs attacking unarmed protesters across the globe, John Kerry´s "concern" about his disregard for human rights, and his only friend being Bashar Al-Assad. But Maduro has chosen to attack Sen. Marco Rubio, a "crazy" who wants him to stop shooting at students. Maduro concluded an extended television appearance this weekend in which, for an hour, he claimed that the world was supporting the Venezuelan government and that the usual cabal of CIA operatives and assorted "fascists" were behind the ongoing unarmed student protests.

WASHINGTON — It´s not the usual question considered in U.S. state capitols: What to call the body of water between Japan and the Korean peninsula?Virginia´s governor is poised to sign legislation that would answer that question. It would require new public school textbooks in the state to note that the Sea of Japan is also referred to as the East Sea in the region. New Jersey and New York are considering similar legislation. The issue is about more than geography. It has pitted the economic clout of Japan, whose ambassador hinted that the legislation could cost Virginia foreign business, against

Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel has proposed shrinking the Army to its smallest size in 74 years through a series of base closures and troops cuts, and by completely eliminating several Air Force aircraft fleets. The move comes as the U.S. Army moves into the final phases of a massive troop withdrawal from Afghanistan, and Congress raises new red flags about American deficit spending. Hagel surprised some observers on Monday when he outlined a military philosophy that removed America from the center of its universe. ´The development and proliferation of more advanced military technology of other nations – it means that

“For the first time,” Gallup tells us today, “more Americans think President Barack Obama is not respected by other world leaders than believe he is.” The news is a bit worse for the president than it looks, as Gallup notes that “Americans’ opinions have shifted dramatically in the past year, after being relatively stable from 2010 to 2013.” While such perceptions often track closely with presidential approval numbers, Gallup explains, President Obama’s numbers have not followed that pattern: “a majority of Americans still thought world leaders respected Obama in 2010 and 2011, when his job approval was similar to what

BRUSSELS- Brazil and the European Union agreed on Monday to lay an undersea communications cable from Lisbon to Fortaleza to reduce Brazil´s reliance on the United States after Washington spied on Brasilia. At a summit in Brussels, Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff said the $185 million cable project was central to "guarantee the neutrality" of the Internet, signaling her desire to shield Brazil´s Internet traffic from U.S. surveillance. "We have to respect privacy, human rights and the sovereignty of nations.

OAK BROOK, Ill. — McDonald’s is in the early stages of looking at whether it can make breakfast available later in the day. Fans of the Egg McMuffin and Sausage Biscuit have long wanted the option to get breakfast at McDonald’s after 10:30 a.m. But offering both the breakfast and lunch menu was considered logistically impossible, given the tight kitchen spaces of the restaurants. Still, it’s an option the chain is eyeing more seriously at a time when people’s eating habits are changing — particularly those coveted customers in their 20s and 30s known as Millennials. “We know, as an

The Obama administration is launching an “attack” on the Medicare Advantage and Medicare Part D programs as part of Obamacare that will result in higher costs and fewer health care options for seniors, according to a U.S. House subcommittee. The administration is quietly introducing “policies that would undermine the integrity and success of the Medicare Part D program” according to the subcommittee. President Bush signed Medicare Part D into law in 2003 to subsidize prescription drug costs for Medicare beneficiaries. The Daily Caller has learned that the House Energy and Commerce Committee’s Subcommittee on Health will hold a hearing Feb.

There have been times when the CNN host Piers Morgan didn’t seem to like America very much — and American audiences have been more than willing to return the favor. Three years after taking over for Larry King, Mr. Morgan has seen the ratings for “Piers Morgan Live” hit some new lows, drawing a fraction of viewers compared with competitors at Fox News and MSNBC. (Snip) It’s been an unhappy collision between a British television personality who refuses to assimilate — the only football he cares about is round and his lectures on guns were rife with contempt — and a CNN audience that

The Obama administration warned Russian President Vladimir Putin on Sunday not to react too aggressively to the fast-moving developments in Ukraine, where pro-Western demonstrators forced the nation’s Moscow-backed president from power over the weekend. National Security Adviser Susan E. Rice said the situation unfolding in Kiev “reflects the will of the Ukrainian people and the interests of the United States and Europe,” and that Russia would be making a “grave mistake” if it sends in military forces to try to reverse the developments — or to seize control of pro-Moscow eastern Ukraine.

WASHINGTON — President Obama plans to announce on Tuesday the opening of two new manufacturing institutes in the Chicago and Detroit areas as part of a larger plan to use public-private partnerships to advance his agenda despite opposition from Republicans in Congress. Several federal agencies will join forces with companies and universities to run the institutes, which will be devoted to bridging the gap between applied research and product development, according to an administration official familiar with the plans. Each institute will function as a “teaching factory,” the official said, and will provide training for workers while also helping companies get the

He is appealing directly to Republican members of Congress to propose a bill on the issue, telling The Huffington Post that there are five House members and one senator “interested in co-sponsoring the bill” and he expects more to join on. Burkman acknowledges that normally, conservatives don’t like the idea of imposing policy on private businesses, but says that this belief is now “trumped for reason of great urgency or
