Calling a GOP victory in the 2012 presidential election antithetical to the party platform, top Republicans revealed a new long-term political strategy Tuesday: reelecting Barack Obama and making his life even more of a living hell than it already is.

No more GOP/TeaBaggers either ...we've had enough of them for years now...look at the mess Dubya left us in.

Now as for the article... LOL...but who knows...it could be the plan :-). Oh well, I'll vote Green or for Bernie S. and Dennis K. if they can be drafted to run.

Anywho, thanks for the smiles and the chuckles behind some food for thought perhaps :-)...........

This is actually true. I've watched Obama being "worn out" by the rabid and savage Republicans. All of what the Onion says is actually not at all funny because it is true.
It's not that Obama did not fight. He did, but he was hogtied by Republican hate.
The only thing to do is to re-elect him and make sure that more than 60% of representatives and senators are Democrats. You will then all see what Obama can do. The forces and the money that is arraigned against him are horrendous, yet there is nothing worse than his base becoming disloyal and blaming him for bein unable to "turn back the tide".
Just make sure that the tide favors him in 2012! Get everyone out to vote! You'll find that Obama will be super green once he is able to actually do things.

I do love the satirical humor of the Onion.

However, this statement is just too true:
"If you thought this debt ceiling thing was bad, wait till you see how unbearable we are when it comes time for the Bush tax cuts to expire," Cantor added. "We are going to pummel this man over and over and over until he regrets ever getting into politics." Can't you just picture this repulsive creature saying this?

They will probably put bills on the House floor to get even greater cuts passed.

For 2 years this man simply sat back glowing in the historical sIgnificance of his election. He did not follow through with any of his promises, nor proposed any legislation to help the environment. The American people, disgusted by his lack of action,vote Republican, and Obama says to himself, "what happened?". He did it to himself.
Not only did he do it to himself, but, because of his inaction, he was the cause of the creation of The Tea Party.

I can't believe what I just read...Are these men or children suggesting such a lame idea? The United States of America can't be governed by a person, Barack Hussein Obama, who doesn't know how to run a country. We still do not know the real truth about where he was born(that birth certificate he came up with was tampered with). Why would his Grandmother in Kenya say BO was born there? We still don't know why he has 11, or so, Social Secuirty numbers. Many mysteries still remain about his educational background. BO needed to be out of there the day he got in!....Are you willing to let the United States of America go to hell in a basket? I'm not....Get him out of there in 2012...Do not play games with our people and our country...

"Looks like you are outa touch with the mainstream again Jason."

Care to tell me what happens when 55% Democrats split their vote 60/40?

If not for the obstruction over providing government jobs by investing in green energy, to save the economy, Obama WOULD be the GREEN president.
You THINK he's responsible for everything when the right wing is.

Main stream!? What does that mean any more? To me, mainstream is a large population of Liberals being drowned out by a right wing, fascist media. Watching the others being told what to think and do.
No. I'm far from out of touch. I've studied politics way too long for that nonsense.

Marilyn G., you've been watching Fox again. All those things you list have been debunked many times over. There are many perfectly legitimate reasons to criticize Obama (and I voted for him!), but these false slurs and accusations aren't any of them. Now, if you want to talk about legitimate ones: he seems to have habit of putting foxes in charge of different government henhouses: like Immelt, whose GE isn't paying taxes and is shipping jobs overseas; and keeping carry-overs like Summers when much more rational economic folks like Robert Reich and Paul Krugman would have put us on a better track.

Marilyn G.......I 've written many time over that Obama's election win was "RIGGED".
I will never believe for a moment he won honestly.........Everything you wrote the people
at the top know we the people can do little about it. Of course we all could ban together
and make every effort to do that.........Will we or won't we is the question!!

Bush was the cause for the creation of the Baggers. The same old "Christian" right wing trickle down peeps needed to distance themselves from Bush and what he did to us. Sadly, Obama has been cornered and betrayed by the completely disloyal opposition into doing much their way...in order to get anything done at all.

The contempt in Lilith's laughter should be noted in her cheering for the Green Party. Just sayin to those who fail to notice. If the nation, raped by the status qou, rose up and voted Green, we would quickly wipe that smirk of her face, but I have no faith that this will happen. No one has to decide today who they will vote for. But when the day comes, even if it rains, VOTE. Its outrageous that our lives depend on the outcome and people will stay home. I'm for compulsory voting as they have in Australia. But don't hold your breath for that here. Those with all the money invest it in our not voting. As if the electoral College wasn't enough. Kerry won the popular vote I believe. Damn the electoral college. Talk about discouraging the vote. Try to Google that term. I just did. I'm not the first.

Not to forget the five lame supremes under the tutelage of corporate power. We won't overcome this debacle for years while the tea baggers and repugs in congress are doing a good job of keeping it going. Wake up, American people, if you want your country back and vote alll repugs and blue dog dems out to pasture.

"I will never believe for a moment he won honestly"

And why is that BM? Oh, and I know you have the "right" to just say things without explaining, so if you want to plead the fifth, I understand....

Banding together with idiots who cling to Birtherism, even now....is counter productive to sane dialog/outcome. I, while unhappy with Obama's decisions do not buy into bull as part of my problem with him. It is rather that he has gone along too much with those we oppose. That does not push me to become those I oppose and start spouting turd brained spew.

Kudos, Jason and Ingrid.

And, under Constitution I have the right to believe or think whatever as long as it harms no one!!!!

I preempted your above response with this. Perhaps you missed it

"Oh, and I know you have the "right" to just say things without explaining, so if you want to plead the fifth, I understand...."

Your way of pleading the Fifth was to explain by not explaining but simply claiming your insinuation to be a feeling... And so, there we have it. A malicious gossip without an apparent clue doing the expected dance as witnessed before, and just as expected.

 

Bette M. (91)
Sunday August 21, 2011, 3:47 pm
I stand by what I wrote. I never pleaded the Fifth anyway.
I expressed an opinion.......Don't put words into my mouth or thoughts either.

Here's a thought you can mess with for awhile.
Obama was elected because he is part black
and a brand new kind of so called political leader
for America far too many swallowed lock, stock
and barrel.
Obama has not had nearly enough political experience
to deal with all the issues of war, jobs loss, immigration
and keeping the Chinese from becoming # 1 in every field
one can think of........We've fallen to # 2 or #3 in the eyes
of the world.

Keep puffing on your dream pipe with Obama for he will
sink us economically one way or another.

P.S. I sincerely doubt my opinions will change the course of history
and Obama will never know of what I wrote anyway. I'm spouting off
what I believe to be true gut feeling or not.
And if all the men at the top have not a clue how to solve many of
our job & social problems what on earth makes you so opininated
of my statements????

I see more of your smoke signals with as many holes in them

I easily anticipated what you would do because you always do the same thing, like a broken record. Fifth or not...call it what you like, you have nothing behind your words but air.

"Put that in your pipe and smoke it", does not add weight to your opinion which you call a "feeling", and can't defend or explain. Shooting you mouth off is protected. And you hide behind that protection as you must. It is your only defense. You can't explain you malice, but only demand, your right to say it.

I have never thought your words would have an impact. I just wanted to see you repeat your patern again, which includes the pipe, and this..." I sincerely doubt my opinions will change the course of history"

Your repeat it any and every time anyone challenges your "opinions".

I did not as I proved, expect you to show reasoning behind your "opinion". The fact that you met my very low expectations of you perfectly, in now as you say, in my pipe.

there isn't a solid political leader now or in the future

You can say any crap, not explain it. and don't have to, which is convenient because you can't, or you would.

Hmmmmm, with my eyes of course. Few of us see with our ears!

I'm no pro at political this or that & Obama doesn't seem to be either.
So me & Obama are equal at something.
Obama has all the help & advisors anyone could hope for,
and all I got is me.............I'm so far away from the forest
I can see the trees.
Obama was elected as a test & a symbol of forgiveness
of all past wrongs since 1864. And that is why his winning
was rigged......A planned set up to win.
Wonder if that will ever be applied to all the dead slaves who
were made to build all those pyrimids in Eygpt. Poor souls
they were whipped & starved from sun up to sun down as
much as slaves were here in the U.S. (Most were not as ill
treated as the history books have led us to believe!)
But, anyway we have the man now to represent blacks
and hopefully be fair to one & all.

Shocker: Whether it be a war strategy, economic plans, public relations, domestic policy or international policy decisions, there are the tell-tale stains from the cherry-picking over of the GWB playbooks and the evidence can be found on Obama's hands!

President Obama is currently vacationing at the posh resort of Martha's Vineyard, where he is studying GWB's economic strategy for 'looking like you're creating jobs' section ... Right Now!

@Alexandra: you are RIGHT ON. While there is a lot to the recent article titled "George W. Obama", in which it details all the GWB policies that have been continued and even expanded under Obama's term, many of which are things Obama campaigned on as ending (think Guantanamo, Iraq, Afghanistan, and the trial of accused terrorists in civilian courts instead of civilian ones, and the Patriot Act), one has to remember that the President is only one of the three equal branches of our government, and not a dictator who can change things unilaterally. He's been blocked at almost every turn when he HAS tried to implement his ideas. However, in a second term, he will be a "lame duck" who doesn't have to worry about being re-elected, and that has potential for him to come out fighting harder (no more "Mr Nice Guy" - and trying to be the [only] adult in the room.) So, yes, let's get together as progressives and keep that man in office for another term, while also making our voices louder about what we want him to do if we give him that.

@annelies: while it's very tempting indeed to just say "a pox on all you politicians" and stay home, please, do not let this temptation keep you home on election day, because if you don't vote (even if you have to hold your nose and go for the least worst of the lot), those who support the crazies will vote them in. And please, if you have any progressive leanings, do go for Obama, because if you vote for another party (like the greens) it will dilute your vote and the crazies will still win. That happened to us here in Maine at the last election: Paul LePage was elected governor with 39% of the vote. He and Scott Walker are blood brothers. Not quite crazy, but a bit of a corporate supporting dinosaur who thinks deregulation and defunding are the way to go for an already poor state that has it's pristine environment as one of it's few strengths.

Explain something to me Bette....why aren't YOU out there planting trees for Danny, rather than spewing all of your rightwing garbage here on Care2 and trying to elicit sympathy for it?

It appears that it's you, bette, that can't put aside your rightwing political opinions even long enough to plant a tree.

MJM.....Please do not mix my Danny or the trees in with your
political comments to me.
Danny & the trees are one thing & political views are another.
Got that????????

Plant & protect Danny's trees for life.

peachy...

No. Indeed slavery here or anywhere is not. I used the word in sarcasm, (perhaps you've heard of it) as response your your suggestion and I quote..."as slaves were here in the U.S. (Most were not as ill treated as the history books have led us to believe!"

You were indeed have been wise to keep still, and keep to calling your "opinions" simply... feelings.

The only hole I've dug has taken us into the workings of a sick and twisted mind, which you couldn't help finally telling us about.

I don't care where you got your "ideas". Bachman is but one source ill, and evil minds drink from, so they can spit out "opinions" like yours. Its disgusting to read someone attempt to whitewash what happened to blacks here in slavery. Simply disgusting, along with holocaust deniers, your statement reaches depths unplumbed by even the most vile.

Oh, and sorry for your loss. My losses are not talked about here. Now I'm closing the door. It stinks in here.

I do not mix them.........I put them at
the very end of anything I comment on & have done so for a year now
and even prior to 9/5/10.

And, I'll continue to do so from here on out!!!!!!

Ingrid, I agree.... that's why my very first vote as an American citizen will go to President Obama. I just hope that if he gets re-elected he'll stand up for his principles and not let the GOP bully all of us.

Send a Green Star to Lilith Cohen
Sending a Green Star is a simple way to say "Thank you"
You cannot currently send a star to Lilith because you have done so within the last week.

Ohhhhhhh MJM, I think you have been drinking & smoking pot.
Go to the nearest bar & talk your fool head of about Obama & politics!!!!!

You are just as ignorant as you were years
ago when I first saw you on here.

Only one other idiot on here could possibly
touch you.........I hope you don't have any kids.

If not for those such as yourself, one might never know it possible for one to be conscientiously stupid, but you prove over and over again, that by effort, it can be done. As for ignorance, you sincerely are, and seem sincere, and so...
 

Robert S. (115)

Oh, and contrary to your stated intentions, your would love to embarrass me if you could, Lilith, but have a habit of only embarrassed yourself, and quietly slipping away after you half witted efforts , hoping no one noticed. But they do notice.

Being a shameless sociopath who smirks while lying does not make you special. They are a dime a dozen Lilith.

Gee whiz, are you ever sensitive. OK, no more pointing out errors.

By all means, if you can actually find one, point it out. Your failed efforts are however a bit tedious. Add a "darn" in there and you could pass for Northern...but no, even you, are not "that" imbecilic, giving credit where its due. There, I've given you a compliment, but only because you deserve it.
