Honestly?

I’m only posting this because it might piss of Alvy, and possibly Jo and Uni. IOW, I’m trolling. I admit it. :=)

Krugman: In Defense of Obama

(snark on)Published in that RW bastion “The Rolling Stone” (/snark off). The Nobel Prize-winning economist, once one of the president’s most notable critics, on why Obama is a historic success.

High office shouldn’t be about putting points on the electoral scoreboard, it should be about changing the country for the better. Has Obama done that? Do his achievements look likely to endure? The answer to both questions is yes.

LOL

Fucking KRUGMAN!

would end bulk collection of Americans’ phone data

The Obama administration is preparing legislation that would end the National Security Agency’s widespread collection of Americans’ phone data while, officials say, preserving the government’s ability to gain information about terrorists.

The legislation, senior officials say, would allow data about phone calls made to and from Americans to be kept at the phone companies. The companies would not be required to hold the data longer than they normally would.

The effort comes as the administration is up against a deadline set by President Obama in January, when he directed his subordinates to find a way to end the government’s mass collection of phone data, a program that has stirred controversy since it was revealed through a leak to the news media last June. He gave them until Friday to come up with options.

Read the rest at the link to the right wing WaPo. Seriously. Read it.

Bush/Cheney started it. Obama’s ending it. Sorta like the war in Iraq, and hopefully soon, the war in Afghanistan.

I seriously don’t understand why you guys think GOP Presidents are “no different” from Democratic Presidents. Bush the lesser was WAY worse than Reagan, who was WAY worse than Nixon, who was WAY worse than Eisenhower. (Yes, I left H.W. and Ford out on purpose. H.W. was a CIA spook and creepy as fuck, but at least he had the decency to raise taxes on rich fuckers, and Ford wasn’t elected.)

Our next GOP POTUS will make Reagan and Bush the lesser look like rational, saintly men. Our next GOP POTUS will end the first, fourth, and fifth amendments. Our next GOP POTUS will reduce corporate tax rates to zero, capital gains taxes, and end food stamps, extended UI, WIC, Obamacare (if the House and Senate are also GOP), and end if not seriously cripple SS and Medicare.

Anyone

Who would have been celebrating the inauguration of Willard “Mitt” Romney, today, is an unmitigated, intractable dick.

Stupid, too.

Don’t kid yourself. Losing the last election didn’t make the GOP LESS crazy. Will the next GOP POTUS candidate be the shrieking white hot sphere of pure rage? I think so, but the sphere will learn to be be smarter than Romney in how it lies to us about it’s true agenda.

I find anyone who considers voting in a way that allows the GOP to have power to be devoid of all reason and logic, and ultimately not worth considering in how we should progress as Americans.

Obama won

Karl Rover, on Fox, is contesting it, but I think the call in OH is the correct one.

I’m glad.

Love or hate Obama, there’s something wrong with Romney. Not being a trained psychologist I hesitate to name it, but he seems like a sociopath, to me. Unable to feel empathy for others. It may be something else. Narcissism, some syndrome involving self-entitlement, like I said, I’m not a psychologist.

But he ain’t right in the head. We dodged a bullet on this election.

I can’t understand red states any more. Not at all.

There’s a superstition that if the Redskins win their last home game before the election it favors the incumbent, if they lose it favors the challenger. It’s held true for decades with one exception; Bush’s “re”-election in ’04.

So there’s another reason to vote for Obama, unless you actually want to live in the hellish wasteland that a wRongney/rAyn WH would bring to us.
