    I'm betting on Jebby. The Bush's love and have to have the power of the Presidency. Unlike a lot of rich people money is not their total end game--its power That is why we are seeing a dustup between Palin and the Bush Servant Man Karl Rove. Rove has to try to get rid of her as force before the primaries of Spring 2012 By that time Rove's well oiled and financed (probably $500 million in oil company contributions by 2012) will have cleaned up George W. Bush's reputation to squeeky clean. As seen in the big reception that the Bushes got at the World Series in Dallas over the weekend, the Bush cleanup is really going well. Pretty soon you won't be able to Google for Iraq War Civilians Killed and get any hits. Rove is doing his thing to put Jebby in the White House in 2013. As far as Ms. Palin's threat goes--she will have one of the following options:

    1. Be bought off by a huge contribution of oil money making her filthy rich to drop out.

    2. Rove will circulate a story on her in all the primary states that she likes to hump black sailors

    3. She best travel by train or commercial airlines from now own. It would be unfortunate for her to fly in a small airplane--we all know how those things tend to crash into mountains all the time (keeping in mind that Bush Sr was head of the CIA for several years).

  • on a comment on Recovery for Some over 3 years ago

    I'm going  with Howard Dean.....I can't stomach anymore years of Obama's nilhlistic Republican Lite. Consider that Obama may yet get his dose of the empowered GOP leadership who are now going to go for an impeachment against him.  No matter that Pelosi passed on the chance to impeach Bush after the 2006 Democrat take over the House. I doubt that their will be any reciprocity on the part of the GOP and the first thing they do is hire Ken Starr to start an investigation of Obama's birth certificates and his Chicago business dealings naturally. No matter that Bush killed almost 1 million Iraq / Afghani civilians for their oil resources in his illegal war.

    If Obama get impeached he has no reason to blame anyone but himself. 1. played the "nice game" with the GOP for 2 years to no avail. 2. hardly ever left the White House to campaign for good Democrat candidates in close elections.  3. lost much of goodwill from the hard work that had built up great Democratic momentum in many previous Red States and GOP local areas.

    I'm pushing for someone to campaign for in the primaries of 2012.  Obama can take a hike......

     

  • I remember it was December 2008. Obama's huge campaign team who worked like crazy to get him elected was still in place. Runoff elections for 2 Senate seats that we could win--the one in Georgia for the world class JERK Saxby Chambliss would have been a gain of a Republican senate seat.......the other seat was open and Al Franken was a good bet to win in Minnesota.  Okay, these guys needed a push to win from Obama and some help i.e. a little money and some leadership from the President's campaign staff.

    BUT NOPE--nothing---Obama just turned and walked away from both these guys.....Franken won (seven months later) and Martin narrowly lost in Georgia.  Had Obama gone to Georgia and really pushed the black voters to honor him and go the the polls we could have picked up that seat.

    Next we have the death of Ted Kennedy. Obama was not even engaged in the pursuit to make sure we kept that seat. Had he really gotten into that fight we would have kept that Massachusetts Senate seat....but NO, he dodged working for the candidate until the last weekend......he made a speech and the Tea Party claimed victory---that was a portend of what was coming in November 2010....a HUGE REPUBLICAN LANDSLIDE and the Tea Party is now a force to be reconded with all the country....had they been stopped last year in Massachusetts, they might have gone away in defeat forever.

    ITS HIS EGO...he doesn't need us, he can win on his own or so he thinks!  But now his EGO isn't going to help him.  With the GOP running the House, he could even be impeached--let's see him charm his way out of THAT PROBLEM......

    HE DESERVES IT FOR IGNORING THE WORK OF THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY.

  • I live in west Houston area which until 1990 was over 90% Republican (the Congressman still is). But it started changing and by 2006 we captured the State of Texas offices. We were rolling and with NO help from Obama's team (we even got money from Hillary's team during the primary) we increased our representation in 2008.  Now we are so screwed by this Republican Lite President we will probably lose both of our state offices--what a pity. His only accomplishment in 2 years is Obamacare--which will probably be revoked under the GOP congress next year. God, this guy is totally out of it--still fighting in Afghanistan, still around 10% unemployed, still huge deficits, 1million foreclosed homes, bankers who have mulitmillion dollar bonuses who got tax bailouts, it goes on and on. I'm looking for Howard Dean to come out and run in 2012--Obammie  will be tough to beat but it can be done.....

  • comment on a post Obama's re-elect a solid 39% over 3 years ago

    When 2006 came along, we pushed our area in Houston to where it had never gone--we elected Democrats to 2 key offices. We expected better results in 2008 and with Obama in the lead we got 1 more seat in the Legislature. Then came his "cumbayah" crap with the Republicans and his reaching out and resetting the tone in Washington.  Now, we are toast--after hard work and setting goals, we will most likely lose all we gained over the last 10 years here.

    I will be interested in his reaction when he gets HIS lesson in Working Together With the Republiars when they start to impeach him. He will probably still think that Republicans can be worked with when they toss him out of the White House. But the good side of that is that we will get a real progressive into office- Joe Biden will move up.....

  • comment on a post The Democratic Problem Starts with Obama over 3 years ago

     

    The many reasons for this mess falls on Obama. The header statement is so very true on many level. That "bipartisan sh*t was just total Obama ego run wild"...where did he get the idea that he could work with the GOP. I will never vote for him again unless the Dems have an uncontested primary in 2012 which I doubt very much. He is way too outside reality for me. Since 1980 the GOP has run election after election using the Lee Atwater model of total war--since then they have run every election except 1992 with one thing in mind -- destroy the Democrats and the social safety nets its promotes.  I think Obama must have been in Kenya -- he certainly has no place as head of our party.  He will get his first big taste of just how bipartisan the Republicans can be in January. Should they even just take the House, Obama is in for it. I really think that he naively assumes that when that happens he will get with them to run the country--totally wrong. Rep. Darrel Issa has already set in motion the GOP's plans to go after him. He's going to have a fight similar to Bill Clinton. By 2012, I would not be surprised if they don't already have Ken Starr and a team to impeach him.  While it didn't work for the GOP against Clinton, Obama is a very soft target for them. For one thing Clinton is a pugnacious type of politican and he fought them tooth and nail. He won and Gingrich lost. With Obama, he will be impeached before he even realizes what happens. Frankly, I don't care. We get Joe Biden as the President.  But maybe, Obama sees what's going on. Right now he's out on the stump (he should have started helping the Democrats win this election in 2008 when his election machine was in high gear. As we've seen (like in Massachusetts, its hard to get him engaged to help Democrats) in past, its almost too little too late--like last week instead of being out helping candidates he was hole up in the White House looking over the evening dinner wine list.  SCENE: The White House Jan. 02, 2011.  The assistant comes to the Oval office and announces to Mr. Obama.  "There is Mr. Ken Starr here to see you about some important matters, Mr. President!!!"

Then along comes Obama and now we are going to get wiped out as the Republicans rushed back in. Obama has given no money, no organization, and no help to local Democrat races--he is worthless as head of the party. SCENE: The White House Jan. 02, 2011.  The assistant comes to the Oval office and the caller announces to Mr. Obama.  "There is a Mr. Ken Starr here to see you about some important matters, Mr. President!!!" Obama deserves the treatment he is going to get from the Republicans lead by Darrel Issa and Mitch McConnell. He forever has thought of them as his friends.

    Since when has Gallup EVER giving a Dem or progressive candidate a spot on chance or good chance to win--usually they have the Dem down by 3-5 points.

  • comment on a post Getting radical change over 3 years ago

    I'm not going to list the "Non" things that the Obama team didn't do--that is a long list.

    Obama himself is a terrible for the Democratic party. I think its just that his ego is all about his needs and not the parties. But lately some one must have whispered in his ear that he is the one NOW at risk should the Republicraps take control of the House.  He now realizes (I think), that they plan to impeach him or at least make a run at impeaching him. Pelozi should have impeached Bush in 2007 (she walked away from the chance even though the same GOP that tried to impeach Clinton insisted that the Congress should not do that). Well, you can bet that should they take over Congress, these same Republicans who begged for mercy for Bush will definitely be out to get Obama. They think he is an uppity black who is out of his place and its high time to put him back in it. Just yesterday, Darrell Issa (R-California) said that he is ready to get the impeachment process going. I think the first thing that's going to happen is that Ken Starr will get his chance to nail Obama starting in January. Funny, how the GOP runs around yelling how they need to get elected so they can get the country going but the only thing they have planned so far is to save the rich tax breaks and to impeach Obama.

    Obama probably can see that he is going to be in big trouble and NOW he needs the Democrats to keep Congress although that hasn't been important to him before. But remember life in Washington is all about HIM as he views it. Only when he needs the Democrats to save his ass does he get out and work the campaigns. He should have been campaigning for Dems for more than 2 months now but he was too busy attending social functions and greeting dignitaries at the White House. Well, the first dignitary he will get to see in January could very well be KEN STARR and his team of miscreates.

  • comment on a post If George Bush... over 3 years ago

    1. Geo. Bush got almost 1 million innocent civilians killed while bringing down a dictator who had by most standards killed 10,000 politicians who opposed him.

    2. Geo. Bush got over 100,000 American soldiers killed and wounded for life over oil which could have otherwise be purchased in the oil market.

    3. Geo. Bush spent $1 TRILLION dollars on a war which he never won.

    4. Geo. Bush couldn't find over $8 billion dollars missing from exchange funds in Iraq--wonder where that went.

    5. Set in motion the loss of over 5 million homes.

     

  • I agree with Mr. Beckmann. The Republicans are really going to have to recognize and implement what the Tea Party demands. Its a train rolling down the tracks (to the right) and its out of control. I really think that the Tea Party will demand that if the GOP seizes control of the House that they start the Impeachment of Obama. It sound crazy but remember in 1994 how the ultraright wing of the GOP took Newt Gingrich on about impeaching Clinton and prevailed. I don't think any sane Congressional leader i.e. McConnell / Boehner wants to go down that road--any sane person would know that the impeachment of Clinton was a waste/distraction at a time when things were pretty good but now times are terrible. They also recognize that the Democrat leaders brushed off impeaching Bush when most of us thought he should have been. But these Tea Party people as I said are a force that the GOP House leaders will have to deal with and will force the impeachment issue. They have lots of members who are racists and who really believe that Obama was born in Kenya--they want him thrown out of office. I have attended there rallies as a member of the local media and I can tell you that there are wild eyed reactionaries in their ranks. Also, consider that they have decimated the old like GOP House members who worked hard in the trenches for many years, got elected locally, ran for Congress, then got knocked off by a person like Christine O'Donnell. She has no background, she has no life, she is totally a creation of the rightwing money from the TEa Party Express.  She alone probably gives some of the contested seats back to the Democrats in other parts of the country by her antics. But in any case, I would bet that before too much time goes by, the GOP House leaders will have to hire Ken Starr to start the impeachment of Obama or face the music with the Tea Party wing of the party.
    The GOP wins this round and the big beneficiary is Jeb Bush and Karl Rove in a setup for 2012.

    Come on!  With Karl Rove and the Bush's out there spending millions already on GOP races (and creating a ton of good will/and future primary election friends for 2012) then MY money is on JEBBIE BUSH. I think he was planning on 2016 figuring that right after 2008  Obama would be in control and impossible to beat. Well, Obama is so weak now that I am sure that the Bush crew are elated. Rove just gave over $4 million to the GOP (he could have raised $100 million from the Texas oil buddies of Bush Senior).  He is building on a really great strategy:  Jeb will be the Mr. Nice Bush to the rescue of a wrecked America.

    Now for the competition. I would give  Ms. Palin should she decide to run in 2012 some advice. If she is leading Jeb by the 3rd primary, then she should really want to avoid flying in small airplanes....in fact if I were running against a Bush family member like Jeb, she would probably want to go by TRAIN!!!!! to do otherwise is very dangerous............the Bush's like to rule the USA and in fact they think its their given right to do so.......no matter what it takes --- Just ask Al Gore.......

  • I saw something a couple of days ago that shows how really lax he is and how much he hates to battle for the middle class.

    He announced on Wednesday that he would NOT go after the Chinese on the trade issue. What is really remarkable is that this is the very issue that is killing the Democrats in states where millions of jobs has been lost (or given away by GW Bush and the GOP). I went to Ohio recently into the former industrial heart of America. It is sad. Around Youngstown over 500,000 jobs have moved offshore. 

    But Obama has decided to "play nice" on the trade issue. The same day he made this announcement, the new numbers came out for our trade deficit with China--it was a record like billions of dollars.  What a pansy!!!! He should get tough on trade and put our workers back to work. There are thousands of products that we make that the Chinese refuse to allow us to sell there--it would be a joke if peoples livelihoods and homes didn't matter....he is such a milktoast.....

    I think I have figured out the coming GOP strategy and it is a Karl Rove smell to it. He of course never stopped working for the Bush's.

    The objective of the Bush's is to get another Bush in the White House. They really like the power and they think of themselves as a Royal Family in America.  I think they felt after GW screwed up so bad that they would have to wait to 2016 to run Jeb Bush but didn't plan on Obama being such a political screw up like GW Bush was.  Well, things have changed and they have adjusted their strategy.

    Rove announced last week that he's buying $5 million worth of airtime for GOP candidates. The good part of that money comes from the Bush's connections right here in Texas. He could easily raise $100 million if he needed to.

    That leads to Karl Rove's plan to run Jebbie Bush.  First they repeat the late 1990's. A. They get control of the House. B. The immediately call in the Ken Starr team and start impeachment proceedings.  C. The GOP really goes after the black guy since they are racist pricks anyway. They won't be able to impeach him--too many Democrats in the Senate won't do that to a black guy--the blacks would really go nuts on that one. But like they did with Clinton, the GOP for the next 6 years just hammer away at the idea that all Democrats/liberals/progressives like Obama are corrupt sleaveballs. Just like with Clinton some of the dirt will stick. Remember Obama is a CHICAGO politician which almost defines corruption in the minds of many Americans.

    Now we get to 2012. All of a sudden Jeb decides to try a run for the Presidential GOP nomination. Hey, we all know how good the Bush/Rove team is at running a campaign--nothing is too low for them....remember the job they did on poor McCain in 2000.

    Jeb will be run as Mr. Clean who can bring back the good old days before sleazy Obama came into office (wow! I cannot believe people have short memories  but they do....).  "He will bring about a more moral government and American nation. This is the same shit that GW Bush ran against old Al Gore on.

    I think its a great strategy and should work. Obama will be protrayed as another bumbling Jimmy Carter. He doesn't have Clinton's pugnacious ability to fight back --- he will probably be beaten badly as Carter i.e. doesn't carry any states except Massachusetts......
