As the election nears, the cameras and microphones will once again capture what your party is made up of. Game over. Say hello to the WHIGS.

I'll just add those scenarios with the 1000 other scenarios that the fear casters have put forward since the scary Black man put his hand on the Bible, or was it a Koran?

"I should have just left it at ....The Republican party has lost all credibility....."

Yes, you should have! As that puts them in good company. D's & R's are virtually tied in favor-ability polls (39% vs 39% CBS March Poll). And while 62% of the American public thinks we're on the wrong track (RCP), R's & D's share equally in a dismal 12.5% Congressional approval rating.

And with trust in govt at or near all time lows, the lack of credibility is pervasive with Americans. I see that as a big plus!

And of course liberals will always have credibility w/ the poor. Don't most of us respect who signs our checks! But billgarr is a bit off about the middle class.

More from the Unite Here report, "The Associated Press headline for a new Brookings Institution study says that the ACA will have a “Big Impact on Income Gap.” People in the bottom two tenths of the income distribution would see average gains of 5.3% and 7.2% from the ACA. But take a close look at Brookings’ graph. Families in the next lowest 20% (family income $20,000 to $38,000) would suffer significant income declines to achieve these gains. Meanwhile, the top ten percent would give up the smallest percentage of income. Only in Washington could asking the bottom of the middle class to finance health care for the poorest families be seen as reducing inequality."

So if a service workers Union see the ACA as a burden for the lower/middle class, how long will the liberal credibility last?

"has lost all credibility to represent the honorable rich (and there are many)."

And by honorable, billgarr means the Wall St millionaires Obama has created.

"QE: The greatest subsidy to the rich ever?" Wednesday, 18 Dec 2013 CNBC "Every Ferrari dealership in the country should have a framed picture of Ben Bernanke in their lobby. It should read: "Our #1 Salesman." The largesse of the Federal Reserve over the past five years has amounted to one of the largest ever subsidies to the American wealthy—fueling record fortunes, record numbers of new millionaires and billionaires, and an unprecedented shopping spree for everything from Ferraris to Francis Bacon paintings."

So yes, Obama does have sway w/ the rich. "Printing" $75-85 billion a month and giving it to the big banks really enhances one's "credibility"!

"has lost all credibility to represent the honorable rich (and there are many)."

Meaning of course all the wealthy Healthcare executives. From the service workers union Unite Here, "The Irony of ObamaCare: Making Inequality Worse". "Transferring A Trillion Dollars in Wealth: Most of the ACA’s $965 billion in subsidies will go directly to commercial insurance companies, one of the largest transfers of public wealth to private hands ever. Since the ACA passed, the average stock price of the big for-profit health insurers doubled, their top executives were paid more than a half billion dollars in cash and stock options, and in the past 2 years, the top 10 insurers have spent $25 billion on mergers and acquisitions"

Insurance co CEO's LOVE Obama!!

"Massive Turnout for Medicaid Enrollment in Mountain State"

While I am glad that the ACA (or whatever) has directed low-income persons/families to a means of obtaining minimal health care, it is a time of sad reflection when America's current economy and/or lack of work ethic (depending upon whether you lean toward liberal or conservative thinking) has forced so many families to utilize a last-resort health care safety net(Medicaid) or a Ponzi-based government plan to obtain health care.

Of course there is a big turnout, we have a large segment of the population in the don't have to pay for anything ever and ACA to them is just more of that. The only thing they have to do is to keep voting for politicians who will pander to their negative voting block. Tomblin is one of them.

Yes, because you have been right so many times before. Your record of accuracy rivals Bill Krystol, who is famously always wrong.

The Republican party has lost all credibility to represent the middle class and the poor. And in truth - it has lost all credibility to represent the honorable rich (and there are many).

In case you folks missed it, Trollslayer took the words "Democrat way" and removed the r so it read "Demorat way".

Do you get it now "rat" instead of "crat".

I had milk come out of my nostrils. This is funny stuff folks.

Where are the death panels? Where is the death spiral of the ACA. Where is Dick Morris crawling around on the floor of his living room in a powder blue sweater making predictions of landslides?

Seriously? Obviously Minot let me use mine.

Did you have trouble with the Obamascam website too? Oh, everybody did, sorry!

No great mystery here, Wheelings website would not let me use my Minot name. Where's the confusion? One is not on the other.

You spawns of the Devil should have stayed in Wheeling.
