It’s good to see America questioning the image makers. Thank God for the Internet.
Not surprising. I know a number of people in the medical field, mostly on the logistics side who are up in arms over Obamacare. Nobody knows what all the coding is. The codes coming in are all wrong. There are too many codes. Doctors aren’t being compensated correctly. Patients are confused as to who is paying for what. And I live where people are relatively savvy as to healthcare issues. I’m just down the road from a large medical school. I can only imagine what it’s like in other parts of the country.
Hey, why not? It’s not like borders matter anymore anyway. So what if a foreign national is trying to influence presidential campaigns? Why should we be concerned with that? And it’s not like Slim is giving money directly to Clinton’s campaign anyway. His money has gone to her charity. So it’s all on the up and up.
So that’s Slim, Buffett, and Soros smiling at Clinton. The billionaires do love Hillary.
Politics continues to get more and more interesting. Things are changing in a big way.
It’s not all driven by Rand Paul. Technology (and social media specifically) has a lot to do with it. The economy sputtering does too. And of course the general war fatigue.
But Rand is articulating a message which reflects where many Americans are right now, in a way that I’ve never seen in my lifetime.
How’s this for a depressing passage. It comes from the attached article.
“There’s just a lot more regulation going on,” Zelizer said. “There’s a lot of intersection between the economy and Washington.”
As we’ve said many times we are pro-immigration. But we are also pro-rule of law. We are anti-ruling by presidential decree. And we are against back room deals with industry and government.
Right now the president is poised to act by executive order on immigration. Obama has political bills to pay.
Yes, this is the genius masterstroke the DC GOP has been waiting for.
You have to hand it to the establishment. They keep trying. So what if Romney is another big government Republican which a large part of the GOP vote couldn’t really support in 2012. The consultants which got paid big time during the 2012 Romney run could get paid again! And if Romney could somehow get the nomination it would be another blow to the libertarian/conservative coalition in the Tea Party. Win/win. Well not for the American people, and probably not for Mitt Romney. But certainly a win for the folks who work in Downtown DC.
Let’s not forget the establishment Republicans who don’t like him either.
One of the things I like about Barney Frank (and there aren’t that many things) is his occasional bluntness.
For instance -
There is almost no reason why the GOP should seek to impeach the President. Mr. Obama has been hobbled by the electorate and the Supreme Court and now his philosophy and general ham handedness is on display for the world to see. The GOP wants to win elections. The party is happy to have Obama implode over the next 3 years.
