We need a Change...

Considering "Hope and Change have failed, we need to find our next President from those running against Mr Obama. Even liberal commentators, such as Maureen Dowd are turning against the President as they recognize his lack of ability...

Montana, West Virginia and South Dakota in the GOP column, Republicans need to pick up just three seats in the following states: Alaska, Arkansas, Colorado, Iowa, Louisiana and North Carolina.

Republicans have a cushion. Five of those states currently lean toward the GOP, poll averages show, while North Carolina is still a toss-up. They also are closing the gap in New Hampshire. But the party may need to pick up additional seats if it loses Georgia, Kansas (if the independent conferences with Democrats) or Kentucky.

It would be great if we saw a change to 58-42 and then have Manchin and Angus King switch to Republican. We need that change!

Republicans have expanded their advantage in the final days of the midterm campaign and now hold an 11-point lead among likely voters on the question of which party should control Congress, a new Wall Street Journal/NBC News/Annenberg survey finds.

Some 52% of likely voters in the survey said they wanted the election to produce a Republican-led Congress, while 41% favored Democratic control.

We need this badly...we need a change!

What may have happened is this: Over the summer Democrats used their money advantage to savage Republican opponents. When spending got equalized in September, Republicans’ numbers rose.

So Republicans retain big leads to pick up three open seats in states carried by Mitt Romney —West Virginia, Montana and South Dakota. Republican nominees have moved ahead of three Democratic incumbents in Romney states (Alaska, Arkansas, and Louisiana) and in two target states carried by President Obama (Colorado and Iowa).

Only in North Carolina, which Romney narrowly carried, has the Republican not yet overtaken the incumbent Democrat Sen. Kay Hagan — and her edge is narrowing in the most recent polls.

Looks like a change...we can only hope!

Well, it's a beginning:

The shape of the political landscape suggests Republicans will gain House seats from the 234 they won in 2012, and possibly exceed the 242 seats they won in 2010 — more than the party has won in any election since 1946.

He sees the need for a change...do you?

Famed chef Emeril Lagasse says that it’s becoming all but impossible to be a successful restaurateur in America today. The government just gets in the way too much. Lagasse specifically singled out the current president’s policies.

“And then you add all the Obama nonsense to what it’s become in the last several years. I’m just saying the way that, you know… the government should stay out of things. [...] Pretty soon, they’re going to wipe a lot of the middle restaurateurs and restaurant cooks. [...] If it continues, then watch: you’re going to have high-end, and you’re going to have fast food, and you’re going to have chain restaurants.”

...The letters obtained are part of the archives for the Industrial Areas Foundation, a training center for community organizers founded by Alinsky, which are housed at the University of Texas at Austin.

The letters also suggest that Alinsky, who died in 1972, have a deeper influence on Clinton’s political views than previously known.

Haven't we had enough of Alinsky?

We have to change before it's too late!

Is this what you want?

Previously unpublished correspondence between Hillary Clinton and the late left-wing organizer Saul Alinsky reveal new details about her relationship with the controversial Chicago activist and shed light on her ideological development.

Clinton met with Alinsky several times in 1968 while writing a Wellesley college thesis about his theory of community organizing.

Clinton’s relationship with Alinsky, and her support for his philosophy, continued after she entered Yale law school in 1969, two letters show....continued...

And nobody asked permission to send the illegals there...

LYNN, Mass. is a municipality on the brink. Key department officials say a recent influx of illegal immigrant children and families in the city is stressing to a breaking point, almost every service from schooling to trash collection to healthcare.

"We have been aware of the unaccompanied children issue for quite a while, and we were able to absorb a lot of these children early on," said Lynn Mayor Judith Flanagan Kennedy. "But now it's gotten to the point where the school system is overwhelmed, our health department is overwhelmed, the city's budget is being sustainably altered in order of accommodate all of these admissions in the school department."

And, it's against the law...we need a change asap!

Wow...could it be?

As Republicans contemplate the possible size of their November victory, outlier races may get interesting. Scott Brown, a few weeks ago considered certain to lose, may well win in New Hampshire. Most folks would not have thought that Republican Terri Land had a chance in a blue state like Michigan, but she continues to run close to Peters in the race. Al Franken also cannot pull away in his re-election fight, and all the polls show that race tightening.

Surely the trophy in any general election is for one party to knock off a legislative leader of the other party. Speaker Foley lost in 1994 in a relatively swing Washington district. Democrat Floor Leader Tom Daschle lost in 2004 in a very red South Dakota against Thune, a very good Republican candidate. Even Harry Reid faced a fight in Nevada, something of a swing state still, in 2010.

The Chicago Sun Times, according to a poll released on September 1, shows that Senate Majority Whip Dick Durbin, the s

President Obama on Friday said social media and the nightly news are to blame for the sense that “the world is falling apart.”

"I can see why a lot of folks are troubled," Obama told a group of donors gathered at a Democratic National Committee barbecue in Purchase, N.Y.

But the president said that current foreign policy crises across the world are not comparable to the challenges the U.S. faced during the Cold War. Acknowledging "the barbarity" of Islamist militants and Russia "reasserting the notion that might means right," Obama, though, dismissed the notion that he was facing unprecedented challenges.

So the media helps get him elected and hides the scandals and protects him while he ruins our country and now he blames them...now, maybe they'll know how Mr. Bush feels.

Oh we so need a change and now maybe the media will actually tell the truth!

Jeddah (Saudi Arabia) (AFP) - King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia has warned that the West will be the next target of the jihadists sweeping through Syria and Iraq, unless there is "rapid" action.

"If we ignore them, I am sure they will reach Europe in a month and America in another month," he said in remarks quoted on Saturday by Asharq al-Awsat daily and Saudi-backed Al-Arabiya television station.

"Terrorism knows no border and its danger could affect several countries outside the Middle East," said the king.

And the oath of office to uphold our laws, the Constitution and protect us means nothing...we need a change!

Americans receiving food stamps were caught selling and bartering their benefits online for art, housing and cash, according to a new federal report that investigates fraud in the nation’s largest nutrition support program.

Complicating the situation is the fact states around the country are having trouble tracking and prosecuting the crimes because their enforcement budgets have been slashed despite the rapidly-rising number of food stamp recipients, according to the Government Accountability Office report.

Under the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, or SNAP, 47 million people have been awarded $76 billion in benefits. State agencies are responsible for addressing SNAP recipient fraud under the guidance and monitoring of the Food and Nutrition Service.

This has to be stopped...anyone see a reason to change?

MIAMI (CBSMiami) — More than a thousand locals lined up Friday morning for several hours under the scorching sun and heat in Miami for a box full of food.

The event located at the Central Shopping Plaza at 3825 NW 7th Street started at 9:00 a.m.

Participants got a box of free vegetables, meats and bread worth $100 until 12:00 p.m.–or until supplies lasted.

Those who didn’t want to stand in line could wait in their car for the drive-thru portion of the event...the food ran out before they ever got the chance.

A result of a bad economy made worse through liberalism and too many illegals. Is this coming to your town?

People, we need to change!

Isn't it strange that atheists often become so turned off by a cross or nativity scenes or the Ten Commandments that they try to get them removed from public property, especially considering that they don’t believe that these religious symbols hold any merit.

They’re offended by something they don’t believe in? And, it offends over 90% of people of the country that they take the nativity scenes down, but apparently, the majority doesn’t have a voice in this country anymore.

Well, that must change!

Teenage criminals and gang members from Central America have been using “an Obama created loophole” to stay in the country, border agent Chris Cabrera revealed. Under current policy, unaccompanied minors are allowed to stay in the country if they have family in the United States and say they have none in their home country, regardless of their background.

“Even if he is a confirmed gang member, a confirmed criminal, even by self-admission, we for some reason don’t send them back to their home country — we release them into our country,” Cabrera said.

Minors usually end up staying in the U.S. “nine times out of ten,” he added.

As a result, Cabrera said “morale is at an all-time low right now” because agents are “not allowed to do the job that they were hired to do.”

Cabrera was reacting to a recent video of a Border Patrol agent lamenting that citizenship now seems to be irrelevant consideration at U.S. border crossings.

What shame this President has brought to our land.

Obama says he will use Executive action on immigration because "people do not want him standing around"...what people?

"Low marks for Obama on immigration reform", Justin Sink - 08/07/14 08:19 AM EDT: "Just 31 percent say they approve of how Obama has handled the issue, according to poll."

Just another lie! Will change come soon enough?
