Sen. Mitch McConnel Asks for Money with a Melange of Rhetoric and Lies


Everyone is familiar with the following video from Mitch McConnell, Minority Leader of the US Senate. Mitch is from Kentucky.  You never hear anything good from him. No brilliant ideas. No positive approaches to government. All he has is an obsession to defeat the first black president: [Another George W. Bush in the Whitehouse?]

 ====O====

Dear Friend,

A lot has happened over the last 1000 days. 1000 days ago, no one could have imagined the rise of the Tea Party and the historic political change it brought about in 2010. 1000 days ago, no one could have conceived of the historic upheaval in the Middle East and financial crisis in Europe. 1000 days ago, no one had heard of the iPad yet. And 1000 days ago, no one could have imagined that our economy would still be stalled, with unemployment over 8%

Yes, the world has changed a lot over the past 1000 days, but with all that’s happened in that time, there’s one thing that we haven’t seen: It’s been 1001 days since Obama and the Senate Democrats have passed a budget.

That’s 1000 days of runaway spending. 1000 days without even attempting to balance the books. And now, Obama and the Democrats have the audacity to tell Americans that we need more big government regulation and more failed economic “stimulus”

Last night, President Obama addressed the nation during his third State of the Union to advocate for more of the same – more discredited, failed economic policies, more big government solutions, more divisive rhetoric designed to turn Americans against each other.

We’ve seen what 1000 days of Obama policies can do. That’s why my Republican colleagues in the Senate and I have worked so hard to stop the runaway spending and government overreach that Obama and the Democrats have tried to push through, but we can’t do it without your help.

That’s why this year’s elections are so important. Senate Democrats have had 1001 days to put our country’s fiscal house in order, and they have failed to make the hard choices we need to restore fiscal sanity to Washington. If we are going to put our nation back on the road to a prosperous future, we need a conservative Republican majority in the Senate…

We need your support to ensure that this country never goes another 1001 days without a budget…

Sincerely,

Mitch McConnell

Mitch, what is more serious and far-reaching is Republican President George W. Bush started, not one, but, two foreign wars, one of which President Obama has ended and the other he finally will end by 2014 (when we hope you will retire.]  These Republican wars were never included in a budget. You funded them with CONTINUING RESOLUTIONS which are funding the government today.  You need to be honest and include Republican failings and short-coming when you attack Democrats who trying to run our country with a “do-nothing Congress.” To the American people “obstruction” and “Republican Party” are synonymous! Compare President Obama’s approval record with yours (Congress).  The people are not the fools you need them to be to win in November and in ’14.

ARE YOU IN THE GAME? PRESIDENT OBAMA IS LEADING. ARE YOU MARCHING BEHIND HIM?


In last night’s State of the Union, President Obama delivered exactly the message Americans needed to hear.

He said this is the make or break moment for the middle class, and that we have a choice:

  1. Fight for less opportunity and less fairness.
  2. Fight to build an economy that works for everyone.

The Republicans have made their choice. From Republican presidential candidates like Romney and Gingrich, and Republican governors like Scott Walker, all we hear about are plans that give big giveaways to billionaires on the backs of middle-class families.

But we’ve made our choice – we’re standing with President Obama. He needs to know that across the country we are standing with him, not the Tea Party Republicans.

Click here this minute to make sure President Obama knows that you stand for building an economy that works for everyone.

Congress is set to make crucial budget decisions in the next few weeks about what we’re going to do on issues like cutting the deficit and getting this economy going. Those same issues are being tackled by governors across the country.

They need to know that we support the President’s plan – we need to build our economy, create good paying jobs and return to real American values like fairness to all.

Take action immediately and stand with the Democratic Governors Association to support President Obama today.

Thank you,

Colm O’Comartun
Executive Director
Democratic Governors Association

ALL DEMOCRATS, FOLLOW WISCONSIN AND DON’T LET REPUBLICANS PUSH US AROUND! 2


There are a ton of good reasons to throw Scott Walker the heck out of office in Wisconsin. No, really! Democrats there collected literally 3,000 pounds worth of recall signatures.

That’s because Walker has been a disaster. He hasn’t put anyone back to work, instead just spending his time lambasting cops, firefighters, and teachers.

Walker’s brand of robber baron Republicanism is just obscene, and now that we’ve put him on the recall block, we have to do everything – everything – to boot him to the curb.

You have to fight back today against Walker’s billionaire buddies. They’re already flooding Wisconsin TV with smiling faces and swelling music to whitewash Walker’s dismal record. The DGA needs you N-O-W to expose the truth about Walker’s radicalism.

Click here to rush $20 or more to the DGA. To recall Scott Walker, we need them working overtime to build an unstoppable campaign. Help ’em out right away.

The DGA is leading the counterstrike against the radical right in 2012. Make a difference in Wisconsin and beyond! Contribute.Don’t forget folks, Scott Walker has already basically tried to rewrite the social contract by smashing workers’ rights. He’s even tried to suppress Democratic votes in order to stay in power.

Remember how angry you felt? The Republicans are hoping you forget and will sit this one out. Well there ain’t no chance of that happening.

We’re already getting organized in Milwaukee and Madison and all across the country to fight Walker’s cronies. Scott Walker already has $5 million in the bank. The Republican Governors Association has tens of millions to spend in Wisconsin. And you know there’s more than enough where that came from.

The DGA is leading the counterstrike. They’ll help organize volunteers, contact voters, and put up TV ads that expose the truth. But they cannot do it without an overwhelming show of support from grassroots donors like you.

Wisconsin is the next big fight for the future of America. So get some skin in the game right this minute.

Click here to rush $20 or more to the DGA. To recall Scott Walker, we need them working overtime to build an unstoppable campaign. Help ’em out right away.

Asked last week about the recall election, Walker had a defiant message. “Bring it on,” he said, like he still didn’t get why people were so angry.

Well, a contribution to the DGA in the next few minutes can help us make Walker eat those words. We have to fight to show Republicans we won’t accept the radical efforts to remake this country.

Sincerely,
James Carville

P.S. Why are you still reading!? Go give to the DGA right now! Here’s that link again:

PRESIDENT OBAMA WILL GIVE “THE STATE OF THE UNION”


THE NATIONAL MEMO

Saturday, January 21, 2012
The Big Story, By Jonathan Alter Obama Must Go Big And Bold At State Of The Union
If the president doesn’t give us specific ideas of what he wants to do in a second term, he’ll have a harder time winning one. The State of the Union is where the president must actually explain how he would reduce income inequality, revive the middle class, and restore faith in our battered democratic institutions.

Mitt Romney Won’t Tell Floridians the Complete Truth! (Typical!) 1


11:15AM EST  I just heard Mitt Romney speaking to a small group of voters in Florida. As usual, he was using smoke and mirrors to blame President Obama for this and that without talking about the root of many of our woes: Republican President George W. Bush!  Mitt repeated his campaign rhetoric about how President Obama is to blame for our job crisis.  He left out the war waged against the President by the entire Republican Party to use obstruction to embarrass Obama by opposing voting “Yes” on his American Jobs Act which the CBOhas ruled will successfully create jobs.Florida, we would have more jobs if it were not for these Republican leaders in Congress.

Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY), Rep. Eric Cantor (R-VA) and Rep. John Boehner (R-OH)

Thomas A. Robert (MSNBC) just asked Chairman Reince Priebus of the Republican Party why can’t Republicans and Democrats work together to improve our current problems. Reince, who never has answers, would not even attempt a response. He immediately launched into the rehearsed Republican language they use to distract the American people from the reality that the previous Republican President failed us so miserably that his party is too embarrassed to mention his name. And they are cognizant of the fact that Democratic President Obama has been so busy cleaning up after George W. Bush, that the country has not been fully engaged in the agenda of the Democrats which improves the economy with jobs, protects civil rights for all minorities, restores the middle-class, etc., all in contradiction of the supreme  agenda of the “TOP 1%” and those who serve them.  Florida, Republicans are great at talking.  They go on and on without solving the problems they created.  Having no answers, they think they can win by distraction and subterfuge…and outright lies! Oh, yes, I can’t forget hate mongering and racism.  It doesn’t matter how ugly the tactic, Republicans are now so desperate that they will say and do anything to win. Witness the GOP campaign in South Carolina won by the “most hated Republican in politics,” Newt Gingrich! American voters, be keen and observe that when they visit your state, how they will alter their general campaign to “work you” and subvert you to the Republicans goal (their marching orders from ???) to protect the accumulated wealth of the rich and successful and keep them running this country.  Their poster boy, of course is Mitt Romney.

American should revolve around God and not the worship of "big money!"

SUCCESS IS GOOD, MITT. SALVATION IS MUCH BETTER!

We can’t rival the power that comes with their “big money.” BUT, if we pull together as we have done in our noble past, WE CAN “TAKE BACK OUR COUNTRY” FROM THE RICH AND RESTORE AMERICA AS BEING FOR THE PROSPERITY OF ALL!  Our present economy is top-heavy and in jeopardy of tipping over into the abyss of inconsequential history. (And, then the Chinese will be free to rule the world!)

As You Watch the GOP Play “How Low Can You Go”…


New Video: We Can’t Wait

In October, President Obama declared that, as a nation, we can’t wait for a gridlocked Congress to resolve their differences and start passing legislation that will jumpstart the economy. Since then, the President himself has taken almost 20 different actions to support the middle class and create jobs.

Watch the video and see how President Obama is fighting for the middle class.

So, The US Supreme Court Can Get it Right!


US Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan

Breaking from Newsmax.com

High Court Turns Aside Kagan Recusal Request

The Supreme Court won’t hear arguments from a conservative watchdog group that wants Justice Elena Kagan disqualified from deciding the constitutionality of President Barack Obama’s national health care overhaul.

Freedom Watch asked the high court for time to demand Kagan’s recusal or disqualification during arguments on the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. The law is aimed at extending health insurance coverage to more than 30 million previously uninsured people and would, by 2019, leave just 5 percent of the population uninsured, compared with about 17 percent today, according to the Congressional Budget Office.

Justices, who will be hearing more than five hours of arguments on the health care overhaul, rejected the request without comment.

Kagan, who was solicitor general under Obama during the political battle to get the law passed, did not participate in the decision.

According to CNN, the court’s brief order all but assures the newest justice will participate in the late March arguments, and eventually rule on the cases’ merits. Similar calls for recusal from other groups have been directed at Justice Clarence Thomas, whose wife is involved in repeal efforts.

Will TSA Yield to Rand Paul (R-KY) and Give Him Special Treatment? 1


Official portrait of United States Senator (R-KY).

SEN. RAND PAUL, TSA OPPONENT

While trying to take a flight, Sen. Ron Paul‘s son, Rand Paul, tripped the metal detector. He asked the TSA for a do-over and was denied. Paul was told he had to undergo the infamous pat-down of which he is a passionate objector. Local police took him away.  However, he is back at the airport under no one’s detention. The Pauls are prominent in the Republican Party. Ron Paul is currently running for President and some speculate that Rand will follow in his footsteps.  Will the TSA be forced by the power of big money to relent and admit they have different rules for the rich and powerful?  Different rules? Yes, have you forgotten this image and the accompanying article? Shameful!

THIS IS HOW MUCH GINGRICH, ROMNEY AND SANTORUM CARE ABOUT THE "LITTLE PEOPLE"
