Portman Refuses One Billion Dollars For Ohio

October 14, 2011

Portman

When Ohio Senator Rob Portman voted against Obama’s “American Jobs Act” he voted against the self interest of the people he represents. Ohio’s share of the act would have been one billion dollars which would have created at least 13,000 jobs. Yet Portman states that Ohio jobs are his number one priority. This from...

Today on Meet the Press Representative Paul Ryan a republican from Wisconsin criticizes Obama’s tax plan as “class warfare.” While I don’t believe as some do that violence must be the result of inequality between the classes, it is quite apparent that the American middle class is under attack by the republican right. First,...

Back on June 10th I asked this question and came up with no satisfying answer. I wrote that as the serious GOP candidates showed up, the 2012 presidential race would tighten. So far the race may have tightened, but as of yet no serious GOP contenders have shown up. Let’s review the roster. Cain,...

Huge Corporate Profits, But Where are the “Job Creator’s?” (Video Included)

August 4, 2011

As we all know Obama signed a bill this week to raise the debt ceiling. It includes cuts that will affect the middle class and the poor, but asks nothing of richer Americans and corporations. The Republican mantra has been that we don’t want to hurt the “job creator’s.” The Daily Show – Armadebtdon...

Is the GOP Trying to Destroy America?

I know the title of the post seems rather far fetched. But when you consider the behavior of the modern Republican party, this may not be as crazy as it sounds. From threatening to default on our loans by not raising the debt ceiling, to insisting on policies such as trickle down theory, and...

Get Your Obama Birth Certificate Coffee Mug Now

I received an email from Julianna Smoot who is with BarackObama.com. Usually when I get an email from a progressive politician they almost always start out with something wrong a conservative has done or said, and then they ask for money. I’m sure the other side does this as well. However, this email was...

Republican Official Doesn’t Even Know What She Did was Racist

As many of you have probably heard, Marilyn Davenport, an Orange County Republican Official, sent out a racist email with Obama’s head photo-shopped onto a chimpanzee. Many republicans condemned it, but what I find more interesting is Mrs. Davenports reaction. She takes almost no responsibility for it. “I’m sorry if my email offended anyone,”...

Path to Prosperity, For Who?

Today President Obama said there would not be a temporary spending bill to keep the government open for a short time. Instead he said, “We’ve already done that twice,” Obama said in a surprise appearance at the White House briefing room. “That is not a way to run a government. “I can’t have our...

Some GOP’ers are Just Getting Too Weird for Me

I’m not sure what has happened to the Republican party. It appears they have been taken over by birthers and tea party members. Two groups an old conservative would not have given a shit about. The GOP used to be about fiscal responsibility and not social issues. Now they want to be involved in...
