October 19, 2013

While almost every news source in the country is talking about the fractured and sinking brand of Republican, the NR prints a story that Dems "may" have a "unity test"?

I was thinking more interesting would be another editorial like the one once written by the NR that the extremists have taken over the Dem party.

And while multiple articles have been printed by the NR that Obama refuses to work with the Repubs, this article tells us Obama has suggested some changes to entitlement programs but revenue increases are a "non-starter" for Repubs.

Maybe, if the NR would stop being biased about NEWS it provides, there would not be so many wackos, writing misinformation and hate everyday on its boards.

"It was made clear that day in 1852 that The Intelligencer's leadership through editorials would be guided not by a single-minded devotion to a political party or ideology..." Seriously?

Talk about the pot calling the kettle black... Go back to copy-dumping the Hufferton Post, Goosewhiner. They're biased, too, but we don't hear you whining about it. LOL

"a remarkable period of party unity, a welcome change"??????

WOW..those FACTS are similar to the REAL fact that Teahadists love instigator Ted Cruz to the tune of 74% and the tad more rational GOPeers at a whopping 25%.

Sorta negates the "A house divided against itself cannot stand" theory given this writer's twisted SPIN on matters and events.

RockE “REAL fact that Teahadists love instigator Ted Cruz to the tune of 74% and the tad more rational GOPeers at a whopping 25%.”

And then there’s the whoppingly-whopping 1% who fantasize up “teahadist” polls and “instigating” Cruzes, and dreamily fawn over the “more rational” GOPeers that the fantasizers stab in the back when the they come back to reality. LOL

The TEAPARTY thinks the FIASCO they caused will help them and the GOP 2014. To say the TEAHADISTS have their heads in the sand would be totally incorrect, it is quite obvious that the TEAHADISTS heads are clearly UP THEIR ARSE!!!!

Mixed singulars and plurals aside, you could use a few more exclamation points, Yosemite Clueless. Because ten, twelve, even twenty exclamation points would give your insightful posts some real punch. Like this:

Note that Clueless neglected to SCREAM the word “elected.” Apparently the will of the constituents who ELECTED those Representatives Clueless calls “TEAHADISTS of the AMERICAN TALIBAN” is less important to Democrits than the demonizing and slandering those Representatives of the People.

“TEAHADISTS of the AMERICAN TALIBAN”? Too funny, especially from a sycophant of the Arms Smuggler in Chief who supported the Muslim Brotherhood in its ascent to power in Libya and Egypt.

When one finds their self with no argument viable to dispute the message it is never acceptable to nit pick minor grammatical errors as a valiant attempt to discredit said message.

Who’s nit picking, Clueless? I’m simply admiring your wonderfully creative combination of the words tea and jihad, and marveling in the shock and awe of all those exclamation points.

Oh, you say you just copied that “teahadists” thing from another loony leftist? And the exclamation points were just a lame substitute for an actual "message"? I’m so disappointed...

I sourced that result from the 10/16/13 PEW Poll

"dreamily fawn over the “more rational” GOPeers that the fantasizers stab in the back when the they come back to reality"

While lengthy barrages of meaningless combinations of words are , well, sentences....

Neither of these two moribund political parties came out of this devisive mess with any crediblility. But for the NR to publish a news item that the Democratic Party might have the same issues as the off the map Republican Party; a flight of fancy, wishful thinking. I'm not pleased with either of these two choices, wouldn't think of voting for a presidential candidate who espoused the values of the T-Party wing of the party. A minority view of a demographic which is older, predominately white and probably not all that connected to the new technology--a qualified guess that most have little involvement with any of the modern technology companies, even less interested in what they do, where they might be headed. If the NR hadn't been boxed into a political corner by being the source for touting everything "Coal" then it's editorial stances might have some validity...but they don't.

The Dem party beats their sycophants like a drum.

This Tempest in a Teapot (pun intended) is just designed to take away the MASSIVE EPIC FAILURE of Obama's ONE and ONLY signature accomplishment, Obamascam aka ACA!

And you buffoons bought into it hook line and sinker.

Problem is, like other DISASTER du JOUR (Benghazi, Fast and Furious, Trayvon Martin, Miriam Carey, DC Naval shipyard shooting, Foot Hood Terrorist attacks (oops, my bad, "Workplace Violence"), etc they were designed to take the heat from the other basic Issue: THE FAILED OBAMA ECONOMY!

By 11/4/2014 the Slimdown will just be another Capitol shooting dust in the wind.

What WILL NOT will be everybody with a sore rear end from their experience with Obamascare.

What is the Obama October 2014 "SURPRISE" to distract from the lagging Economy and the Obamascam FIASCO?????

The Tea Party are HEROES to those who voted for them and those who WISH to vote for more of the same. 2014 may be the first year for the formation of a SERIOUS 3rd party threat to the establishment DNC and GOP.

And IF the Tea Party is as small as SuckeredReputation's IQ, then you Obama Sycophants are the Dumbest MF's in the World because you blog about the a handful of representatives 99% of your waking hours.

If they are really as small as the Libertarian party, Faghettaboutit, no problem.

RIGHT????? RIIIIIIIIIIIGGGGHHHT!

Did you ever notice how when you type 1000 characters here all the characters at the left ends of the lines appear in a nice straight column, and how the right ends shift back and forth in such a pleasing variety of form?

Other than racist, ageist babble like “older, predominately white,” at least that’s something you can take away from sounder’s pompous, ponderous post. LOL

Other than some corporate headquarters which exist in what remains of Pittsburgh, ditto for Cincinnati, the city which can still claim Kroger and Proctor & Gamble as major corporations headquartered there, a cruise up the Ohio River between both places won't be one of those scenic and expensive tours of the Rhine River Valley but another of places which bet for too long and too much that what existed in 1913 would still be viable at the end of the 20Th Century. For those many residents who had little say in what survived, what remains--my sympathies up to a point. Those smaller places which chose poorly or had no say in what happened to the mainstay of the local economy; time for triage, time to move on. Tea party stalwarts tend to be older whites, not that educated into the economic forces of the 21St Century, certainly not in a majority of the population which lives in any of those R & D dominated, high technology centers which exist across the U.S.

Trollslayer; what parallel world do you live in where "Death Panels" are known to operate, at least in this country? The means, the human resources, the political skills, a population which has definite goals, a means to achieve them which doesn't involve extractive industries like coal nor the new energy source; Marcellus or Utica Shale Gas. Your not going to find many if any of the under forty, educated work force having much in common with those citizens which gather at Tea Party Rallies. You'll find conservative voters in Silicon Valley and in other centers for technological development and research, just not the older, predominately white population which makes up the most stalwart grass roots level of that very conservative group given the Tea Party label. Your not going to find the human capital, the brain power required to turn a troubled economy around in the Ohio Valley; not from the attitudes and comments of many which are posted in this newspaper over a variety

Sounder likes to run his condescending, patronizing mouth but when push comes to shove I'll bet he can't back up his bullspit.

I have a BSEE from Ohio State, an MSEE from CSULB, I have 13 patents in high tech electronics, 2 more in process.

I own a technical consulting company and run a design group at Fortune 500 company.

ALL of my coworkers are under 50 tea party voters, all of us own AR-15's, and all of us likely have higher IQ's than you or I would have fired their****a long time ago.

Some are Atheists, some are strong Christians, some are black, some are Hispanic, and some are white.

But ALL think OBAMA is worst friggen POS that ever hit America.

You just don't get it that Geographically about 83% of America voted AGAINST Obama. But the dense populated ghettos have more voters than WV, NM, WY, and dozens of other states COMBINED.
