Mavericky RINO Senator John McCain Says Republicans Voting Against Budget Deal Lack ‘Intellectual Integrity’ … Um, President Ronald Reagan Would Disagree

So this is what the Republican party has become in 2013, and this sorry, mavericky RINO was nominated the GOP’s presidential candidate in 2008, ever wonder why you lost?

RINO John McCain (R-AZ) called out Republicans who would dare oppose a bad budget deal that does nothing to reduce the out of control spending and the +$17 trillion debt. McCain said that Republicans who vote against the budget deal lack “intellectual integrity”. Really sir, you may want to look up that definition as you are exactly what is wrong with the GOP and the lack of any integrity to stand for the American people, the catastrophic escalating debt and our hero soldiers. So this is about some gutless GOP Senators worried about a government shutdown, rather than the collapse of the USA with unsustainable spending?  A bunch of establishment RINO’s are more concerned on how a shut down will effect them, rather than being statesmen and doing the right thing for the American people? UNREAL … sadly we have become a government of, by and for the American People establishment government class.

Spending is increased; however, the budget comes at the expense of our heroes, injured veterans who have given of their body and mind to the defense of this nation to have their benefits reduced. ARE YOU KIDDING ME!!! Civilian workers do not face the same benefit cuts, it is on the backs of our wounded warriors. You should all be ashamed of yourself. So this is what bi-partisanship looks like, agreeing on crap? And a note to the GOP … I am sick of your excuse that you only control the House, these gutless RINO’s would have done the same if they controlled the Senate.

Senate Democrats actually block an amendment to restore veteran benefits by closing illegal immigrant welfare loophole and still these treasonous 12 Republican Senators voted for this rotten bill. So illegal immigrants were just treated better than the men and women who have givens arms, legs, mind body and soul to defend America. That my GOP turncoats would be the definition of a lack of “Intellectual Integrity”. As stated at The Right Wing News, we all know that the Dems prefer illegals to our military vets, but my issue is with the GOP traitors. I expect this kind of crap from the LEFT, I do not expect it from Republicans. And we wonder why establishment Republicans are being primary challenged.

Senate Republicans were unable to stop military pension cuts when Senate Democrats blocked a vote on an amendment to prevent the cuts by closing a welfare loophole for illegal immigrants Tuesday evening.

The two-year budget deal brokered by Senate Budget Committee Chairwoman Patty Murray and House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan, would cut military pensions by $6 billion over ten years, leaving some Senate Republicans scrambling to stop the cuts.

The US Senate voted 67-33 with

RONALD REGAN WOULD DISAGREE WITH MC RINO. For all of those who have said that Reagan would not agree with the Tea Party, you have no clue. Reagan left the Democrat party, stating, I did not leave the Democrat party, the party left me. Sadly, the Dutch would probably say the same thing today and leave the GOP.

I want you to listen to what Ronald Reagan said during a 1975 interview with Johnny Carson on ‘The Tonight Show” and his brilliance of what he spoke of then, that is even more applicable today. Reagan had it right, government was not the solution, it was the problem. The US, its people, business and the economy would work gang-busters if the government got out of the way. The VIDEO below is a must watch.

“If government would shut the doors and sneak away for about three  weeks, we would never miss them” – Ronald Reagan (1975)

Remember when Ronald Reagan responded to Johnny Carson in 1975 on how do you balance the budget? Reagan said, “balance the budget is like protecting your virtue, you just have to learn to say no.” I guess we now know where Nancy Reagan got her idea against drugs to “Just Say No”.

 

NFL Hall of Famer Jim Brown Gives President Barack Obama a Grade of “C”

Wow, Jim Brown doesn’t think Obama is the one we have been waiting for, doesn’t think he is a special kind of person … So much for ‘Hope & Change”.

Jim Brown, NFL Hall of Famer and arguably the greatest running back of all time had a few choice words for President Barack Obama while on the Arsenio Hall show. Never at a loss for words and a man that speaks his mind whether you agree with him or not I have always respected the man because of his convictions and never beating around the bush. During his appearance he was asked what he thought of Barack Obama, his response most likely shocked many libs and blacks. As reported at The Politico, Jim Brown said, “I like him as a human being, but somehow it seems like he’s over his head or maybe he underestimated the system of government we had. [...] I give him a ‘C.”

Asked by Arsenio Hall for his thoughts on President Barack Obama, legendary football player Jim Brown expressed his disappointment in a man he once campaigned for in Ohio.

“That’s a difficult one,” said Brown. “I like his family. I like him as a human being. But somehow it seems like he’s over his head.”

Brown said he’d give the president a “C” grade and added that “maybe underestimated the system of government.”

Jim Brown and I agree, this is the reason why you don’t elect a “community agitator” and someone who has no qualifications to do the job, president. What is also interesting is even Jim Brown calls Obama a partisan.

Full comments:

“When you ask me that, that’s a difficult one. I like his family. I like him as a human being, but somehow it seems like he’s over his head or maybe he underestimated the system of government we had. When Kennedy couldn’t get the Civil Rights Bill passed he was the big liberal. Lyndon Johnson came in and got it passed and he was a conservative and a Southerner. Sometimes in politics, to get something done, it takes a special kind of knowledge and a special kind of person, but it doesn’t always follow the party lines. Obama was elected by the people, and I was glad that barrier was broken down. I did, along with my wife, campaign for him in Ohio because that was a key state. If I had to say does he rate an ‘A’ or does he rate a ‘D,’ it would be very difficult. I give him a ‘C.’”

Personally, I think Jim Brown went a bit easy on his friend, maybe a first in Brown’s career, but for Obama to get a “C”, he would have to be average. Barack Obama is not average, he is well below average and at this point gets a “D” and if Obamacare, the economy and the Middle East continue in uncertain turmoil, it will be changed to an ‘F”.

GEEZ … Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-TX) Calls for “Unemployment Insurance for Working Men and Women” (Video)

The gentle woman from Texas said, “the pope being named man of the year has spoken to the world eloquently,” hah, which is more than I can say for Sheila Jackson Lee.

US Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee called for “unemployment insurance for working men and women.” Huh, didn’t Barack Obama and his minions just tell us that the economy is rebounding? Why would we need an further continuation of long term unemployment. Looks like Sheila Jackson Lee wants to go one better and provide unemployment benefits to the working as well. I am hoping that she misspoke, but then again with these liberal Democrats and Obamanomics, one never knows.

Hey, why not unemployment insurance for all … according to Democrats, best way to grow the economy. What is wrong with these people? How did America ever elect these socialists into the majority of anything?

Let’s not forget this other classic Sheila Jackson Lee moments of brilliance:

Quinnipiac Poll: Obama’s Job Approval Rating Falls to Low of 38% … Obamacare at 34%, Handling the Economy 37%, Not Honest & Trustworthy 52%

HOW LOW CAN THE LION LYING KING GO …

According to the UK Daily Mail, a recent Quinnipiac poll has President Barack Obama’s job approval rating continuing to fall, down to 38% while a whopping 57% disapprove. Barack Obama’s poll numbers are reaching epically bad levels as there is no end in sight for Americans finding out further bad news regarding Obamacare and the 2000 unread pages in how it affects people’s lives. Americans continue to find out and realize that they were lied to and the impacts are directly being felt. Obama is seeing lows across the board in handling the economy, healthcare, foreign policy and is seeing support from key groups like Latinos and Millennials completely fall apart. But wait, there is one thing that Obama gets high marks in, 52% polled say that Obama is not honest or trustworthy.

Once a president loses the trust of the people, they are finished, #You Lie!

Obama_handonforehead

Barack Obama is facing poll numbers that are now in the same territory as President George W. Bush’s following Hurricane Katrina.

The Quinnipiac University Polling Institute released numbers on Tuesday showing that just 38 per cent of registered voters approve of the job Obama is doing as president, with a whopping 56 per cent saying they disapprove.

The president has lost his landslide electoral edge among young voters, too, with a negative 41–49 per cent rating among 18- to 29-year-old voters. His once formidable support among Hispanics has also evaporated: They now support him by an historically small 50–43 per cent margin.

Worse for Obama’s fast-approaching legacy-building years, the public believes he is not ‘honest and trustworthy,’ by a 52–44 per cent score. A smaller majority, 51 per cent, said he lacks ‘strong leadership qualities.’

Quinnipiac_poll_jobapproval_121013

More bad news for Obama from the Quinnipiac poll … (pdf).

Today, Obama gets negative scores of 6 – 92 percent among Republicans, 30 – 62 percent among independent voters, 31 – 64 percent among men, 44 – 49 percent among women and 29 – 65 among white voters. Approval is 76 – 18 percent among Democrats and 85 – 9 percent among black voters.

  • 37 – 59 percent on his handling of the economy
  • 34 – 62 percent on health care
  • 42 – 49 percent on foreign policy
  • 40 – 48 percent approval for his handling of the situation in Iran
  • 49 percent young voters now saying they disapprove of his job performance
  • 43 percent of Hispanics now oppose Obama

MSNBC’s Melissa Harris-Perry Says “Obamacare” Is Same As Using The “N” Word … The Liberal MSM Playing the Race Card as They Play Chief WH Propagandists

WOW, when I first watched this VIDEO I  thought it was a SNL parody skit. Then realized this lib was actually being serious. I guess she went to that media/WH meeting about how to shill for Obamacare! Yup, NO MEDIA BIAS HERE …

Five years later, two elections later, record number of Americans on food stamps, real unemployment at all time highs, median household incomes at all time lows, job participation at all time lows, the Middle East in chaos, greater terror threats to America than ever before, millions of Americans losing their insurance, premium costs skyrocketing, scandals like IRS-date, AP-gate, Fast & Furious, NSA-gate and the liberal MSM is using the race card with the blessing of the Obama White House. MSNBC’s Melissa Harris-Perry is saying that by saying “Obamacare” is the same as using the “N” word and you are a racist. In a cheer-leading Obama rant that would have made Joseph Goebbels blush, she suggested the term “Obamacare” and the N-word are interchangeable, claiming both were “conceived by a group of wealthy white men who needed to . . . render [a black man] inferior and unequal and diminish his accomplishments.”  Hmm, what was Reaganomics, Romneycare, Hillary-healthcare? What about Voo-doo economics? Were all these racists too? It’s called political discourse you IDIOT!

How very sad that liberals in the media continue to try to divide America and make everything about race in an attempt to stop people from criticizing a disastrous law by calling them racists. A note to MSNBC and Melissa Harris-Perry that have you taken a look at how “We the People” feel about Barack Obama? There is a reason why Barack Obama is at an all-time low in the polls, down 23% with Hispanics,  down 17% with Non-Whites and down 14% with women, are they racist too? Are the millennial’s who voted overwhelmingly for Obama in 2008 and 2012 racist too, 57% disapprove of Obamacare and 52% want it repealed..

From The Daily Caller:

HARRIS-PERRY: “I want to talk today about a controversial word. It’s a word that has been with us for years. And like it or not, it’s indelibly printed in the pages of American history. A word that was originally intended as a derogatory term, meant to shame and divide and demean. The word was conceived of by a group of wealthy white men who needed a way to put themselves above and apart from a black man, to render him inferior and unequal and diminish his accomplishments.

“President Obama has been labelled with this word by his opponents, and at first he rose above it, hoping that if he could just make a cause for what he’d achieved, his opponents would fail in making their label stick. But no matter how many successes that he had as president, he realized there were still many people for whom he’d never be anything more than that one disparaging word — a belief he knew was held not just by his political opponents, but also by a significant portion of the American electorate.

“And so he decided if you can’t beat them, you’ve got to join them. So he embraced the word and made it his own, sending his opposition a message they weren’t expecting: ‘If that’s what you want me to be, I’ll be that.’

“Y’all know the word that I’m talking about. Obamacare! That’s right! I said it and I’m not ashamed, and neither is President Obama!” (More HERE)

CNN Poll: What Obama Job Revovery … Only 24% Believe That an Economic Recovery is Under Way

Remember when President Barack Obama spoke of the job recovery that was under way … Neither do most Americans!

During Barack Obama first State of the Union Address in 2009 he stated the following: “It’s an agenda that begins with jobs. As soon… As soon as I took office.” Instead he focused 100% on passing Obamacare against the will of the people.

According to the most recent CNN poll, not only is Barack Obama struggling with low job approval numbers and trust issues on Onamacare, with regards to the #1 issue facing Americas today, the economy, 59% things are going badly, only a mere 24% believe the economic recovery is under way. Exactly how long has Obama been making that promise? And instead of making jobs the number one issue, he goes out of his way to destroy jobs with over-regulation and  his healthcare and energy agenda. Obamacare has caused business to fire individuals or reduce the jobs from full-time to part-time. An his energy policies are doing their best to destroy the coal industry in the United States.

Obama_Failure

Americans views on the state of the nation are turning increasingly sour, according to a new national poll.

And a CNN/ORC International survey released Friday also indicates that less than a quarter of the public says that economic conditions are improving, while nearly four in ten say the nation’s economy is getting worse.

Forty-one percent of those questioned in the poll say things are going well in the country today, down nine percentage points from April, and the lowest that number has been in CNN polling since February 2012.Fifty-nine percent say things are going badly, up nine points from April.

Besides an obvious partisan divide, which contributes to a urban-rural gap, the survey also indicates a difference of opinion between younger and older Americans.

So its not just Obamacare that Americans are dissatisfied with Barack Obama. It is coming from all directions and at some point it will reach the point of no return, if it already hasn’t.

The 2012 State of the Union:

Yea, imagine if we actually did what Obama promised and did oil exploration in the US and made dependency on Middle East oil a thing of the past. Imagine if we regulated less and allowed the American industrial machine to take off. Imagine if we allowed for increases in nuclear, clean coal, oil, natural gas and the dreaded fracking

Imagine what we could accomplish if we followed their example. Think about the America within our reach: A country that leads the world in educating its people. An America that attracts a new generation of high-tech manufacturing and high-paying jobs. A future where we’re in control of our own energy, and our security and prosperity aren’t so tied to unstable parts of the world. An economy built to last, where hard work pays off, and responsibility is rewarded.

2011 State of the Union:

The very small business jobs that Obama is touting are the very one’s that Obamacare is destroying.

But we have never measured progress by these yardsticks alone. We measure progress by the success of our people. By the jobs they can find and the quality of life those jobs offer. By the prospects of a small business owner who dreams of turning a good idea into a thriving enterprise. By the opportunities for a better life that we pass on to our children.

2010 State of the Union:

This recession has also compounded the burdens that America’s families have been dealing with for decades – the burden of working harder and longer for less; of being unable to save enough to retire or help kids with college. [Save enough? How are Americans supposed to save with the increase in energy costs, the price at the pump and high premium costs of Obamacare? Let along college ids can't get jobs.]

The plan that has made all of this possible, from the tax cuts to the jobs, is the Recovery Act. That’s right – the Recovery Act, also known as the Stimulus Bill. Economists on the left and the right say that this bill has helped saved jobs and avert disaster. But you don’t have to take their word for it. [Yea, how did that "Hopey-Changey" stimulus waste of tax payers money work out for you America?]

That is why jobs must be our number one focus in 2010, and that is why I am calling for a new jobs bill tonight.[What was his #1 focus, jobs or Obamacare?]

2009 State of the Union:

You don’t need to hear another list of statistics to know that our economy is in crisis, because you live it every day. It’s the worry you wake up with and the source of sleepless nights. It’s the job you thought you’d retire from but now have lost, the business you built your dreams upon that’s now hanging by a thread, the college acceptance letter your child had to put back in the envelope.

The impact of this recession is real, and it is everywhere. [Hmm, doesn't it sound like Barack is talking about the affects of Obamacare on families and businesses?]

Dinesh D’Souza Tweets about Obama: “I Am Thankful This Week When I Remember That America Is Big Enough and Great Enough to Survive Grown-Up Trayvon In the White House!”

Just days before Thanksgiving Dinesh D’Souza tweets what he is thankful for and goes there …

Dinesh D’Souza tweeted, “that I am thankful this week when I remember that America is big enough and great enough to survive Grown-Up Trayvon in the White House!”  Oh boy, you know this is going to evoke a complete unhinged response from the LEFT. They will be calling him a vile racists and a “WHITE” Indian.  In 2012, D’Souza released ’2016: Obama’s America,’ a film based on his 2010 book ‘The Roots of Obama’s Rage’. Hmm, doesn’t D’Souza understand that only Obama can compare himself to Trayvon, if anybody else does they are race-baiting, racist swine.

Obama_trayvon martin2

And the LEFT did not disappoint as the social media on the LEFT went mental.

Supposedly, the tweet has since been deleted from D’Souza’s Twitter account.

Hmm, a grown-up Trayvon Martin in the White House. Having covered the George Zimmerman – Trayvon Martin murder trial and the events that led up to the case including the death and three-ring media circus, hell-bent on getting a pound of racist flesh from “white” Hispanic, George Zimmerman,” and having covered this disastrous presidency of Barack Obama, there are many things to be thankful for, I am not sure if I would have worded it quite as Dinesh D’Souza did. Although to be fair to him, it was Barack Obama who interjected himself into the Zimmerman-Martin case before he knew any of the facts of the case. But when did facts or the truth ever get in the way of Barack Obama? It was actually Obama who first made the comparisons to Trayvon, but playing the race card is perfectly okay. It was Barack Obama who said, “Trayvon Martin could have been me 35 years ago,” after he could not accept the jury verdict that found George Zimmerman “not guilty” in the murder of Trayvon.

However, what should have been said was the following … “I AM THANKFUL THIS WEEK WHEN I REMEMBER THAT AMERICA IS BIG ENOUGH AND GREAT ENOUGH TO SURVIVE BARACK OBAMA IN THE WHITE HOUSE”.

America better hope it is big enough and great enough to do so because Obama has caused such great division, dissension and desperation among the people. Obama has devastated the economy and the will of people. Obama has spent us into oblivion at $17 trillion and counting. And if allowed Obama is going to destroy the insurance industry as we know it and in turn further wreck the US economy forever. Let this be a lesson to America, do not ever, ever, ever elect a socialist community agitator president, I could care whether he looked like George Zimmerman, Trayvon Martin or Steve Martin.

CNN Poll: President Obama Down to 41% Job Approval & a Mere 40% Say President Can Manage the Government Effectively

DOWN, DOWN, DOWN … AMERICA SUDDENLY FIGURES OUT A COMMUNITY AGITATOR HAS NO LEADERSHIP SKILLS …

According to the most recent CNN poll, Barack Obama’s approval rating is down to 41%, while 57% disapprove. This is an astonishing -16% mark for Obama in a CNN poll. But the terrible polling and Americans anger for Obama does not end there. The poll stated that only 40% think that Obama can manage the government effectively. OUCH, down 12% from June. But I would ask the question, what ever made Americans think that a community agitator with no management experience could manage the US government? Obama’s polling troubles don’t end there … 56% say he is not a person they admire, and 56% also say he does not agree with them on important issues. And wait, there is more, 56% say he does not inspire confidence, and 53% don’t view him as a strong and decisive leader. Other than that, things are going swimmingly for the President,[sarcasm intended].

Obama_Pout

Only four out of 10 Americans believe President Barack Obama can manage the federal government effectively, according to a new national poll.

And a CNN/ORC International survey released Monday morning also indicates that 53% of Americans now believe that Obama is not honest and trustworthy, the first time that a clear majority in CNN polling has felt that way.

According to the survey, conducted last Monday through Wednesday, 40% say the President can manage the government effectively. That 40% figure is down 12 percentage points from June and is the worst score Obama received among the nine personal characteristics tested in the new poll.

“A lot of attention has focused on the President’s numbers on honesty in new polling the past three weeks, but it looks like the recent controversy over Obamacare has had a bigger impact on his status as an effective manager of the government, and that may be what is really driving the drop in Obama’s approval rating this fall,” CNN Polling Director Keating Holland said.

America finds Obama not honest or trustworthy

Obama’s Failed Green Energy Policies: American Taxpayers Lose $139 Million on Fisker Automotive Loan

The Obama administration fumbles the ball again in picking Fisker Automotive and giving them our hard earned money …

What else could we expect from Barack Obama, but yet another failed policy costing the American tax payers millions in wasted money. This time it is Obama’s failed so-called green energy policies like Fisker Automotive and a $139 million loss.  Great, now we are selling off $192 million defaulted loans to the Chinese for $25 million. Thanks Barack Obama.

Obama_Failure

Happy Thanksgiving from the Obama administration. The Energy Department has sold off its $192 million loan guarantee to Fisker Automotive to Chinese billionaire Richard Li for $25 million — the biggest taxpayer loss on a green loan since the failure of Solyndra.

The Energy Department will announce the “selling of the promissory note” to Hybrid Tech, which is owned by Chinese billionaire Richard Li, according to sources familiar with the sale. The DOE sold the loan to Li for $25 million after lending the financially troubled green automaker a total of $192 million since 2009.

“Once again, American taxpayers are losing out to foreign investors due to the Obama administration’s failed green energy policies. Time after time this administration has fumbled the ball with their attempts to pick winners and losers when it comes to American energy,” House Energy and Commerce Committee vice chairman Marsha Blackburn, a Tennessee Republican, said in a statement to The Daily Caller News Foundation.

“As a result of President Obama’s misguided policies, the Department of Energy Loan Guarantee program is quickly becoming a highly utilized stimulus program for foreign investors,” she added.

Including the $25 million loan sale, the DOE has recovered only $53 million of the original $192 million disbursed — netting taxpayers a $139 million loss.

Fisker was awarded a $529 million loan guarantee by the Obama administration in 2009 to produce a luxury hybrid car, the Karma, which sold for a $103,000 per unit. However, failure to meet Energy Department benchmarks to receive funding resulted in the company losing its loan guarantee in 2011

CNN Poll: Barack Obama’s Approval Rating Hits All-Time Low, 41% Approve, 56% Disapprove

Another poll and another new low for Barack Obama …

According to the most recent CNN poll, President Barack Obama has hit an all-time low with his job approval as only 41% approve of the job he is doing, while 56% disapprove.  This poll is just one of many recent job approval polls that have Obama hovering at 40% or under in the 30′s. Even more troubling for Obama is that he has lost the middle and women as the approval/disapproval is remarkably far apart:  Independents 32-63, Moderates 40-56 and Woman 40-53. Powerline makes an important point in that this is just the beginning of the slide as the real affects of Obamacare have yet to hit a majority of Americans. When 10′s of millions or greater lose their employer insurance plans, lose access to their preferred physicians and hospitals, “Poll numbers that look like a floor today will look like a ceiling in six months.” Yes they will.

And right on script, Obama looks to blame everyone but himself.

 Obama_handonforehead

As President Barack Obama’s approval rating hits another all-time low, a new national survey also indicates that Americans say the President has less power than congressional Republicans when it comes to shaping events over the next year.

According to a CNN/ORC poll released Thursday, 41% of Americans approve of the job the President’s doing in the White House, the lowest level for that crucial indicator in CNN polling. Fifty-six percent questioned say they disapprove of Obama’s performance, an all-time high in CNN surveys.

The President’s overall job approval rating is down three points since mid-October after being stuck in the mid-40s for several months in CNN polling. But it’s worth noting that Obama’s woes did not begin with the disastrous launch of the HealthCare.gov website in October, Holland pointed out.

“The real damage came in June, when reports about NSA spying and IRS treatment of conservative groups caused an eight-point drop in his approval rating – a far more significant change than what the numbers from October suggest,” he said.

How comical is it that  Rasmussen is the outlier poll that favors Obama the best at 43% approve, 55% disapprove?

UPDATE I: Hot Air takes a look at several of the cross-tabs of the poll, and they do not bode well for Democrats.
