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...

While Catholics have been swing voters since Nixon’s second term, white Catholics are now identifying as Republican by historic margins. According to the most recent polling from the Pew Research Center, 53% of white Catholics now favor the GOP, versus 39% who favor the Democrats—the largest point spread in the history of the Pew poll. And for the first time, white Catholics are more Republican than the voting group usually considered the ultimate Republicans: white Protestants.

These are ominous signs for the Democrats, evincing a growing allegiance with the Republican Party that has long-term implications.

So why are white Catholics abandoning the Democratic Party? There are very good reasons at play. Conservative bishops have been going so far as to argue that “good” Catholics can’t vote for Democrats because of their support for abortion rights and, more recently, same-sex marriage — which has resulted in an increased politicization of the church.

Obama hasn't won an overreach court battle yet, so why does he keep trying to be king?

In the weeks since Obama's power play was put on hold, the White House has expressed confidence that the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 5th Circuit in New Orleans would overturn Hanen's decision.

However, the White House hasn't received good legal news of late.

On Friday, that appeals court rejected the Justice Department's attempt to lift the hold on Obama's immigration programs. Though procedural, that development could bode poorly for when the court in New Orleans hears a broader appeal to the ruling, putting the brakes on a centerpiece of the president's second-term agenda.

But if you listen to the President, we're living in the best of times...

It's not only the just-released University of Michigan consumer confidence report and February retail sales on Thursday (3/13/2015) that surprised economists and investors with another dose of underwhelming news. Overall, U.S. economic data have been falling short of prognosticators' expectations by the most in six years.

The Bloomberg ECO U.S. Surprise Index, which measures whether data beat or miss forecasts, fell to the lowest since 2009, when the nation was in the deepest recession since the Great Depression.

We need a change, and it can't come too soon!

President Obama Job Approval Reuters:

39% Favorable

51% Unfavorable.

Reverend Franklin Graham said he did not know whether President Barack Obama dislikes America, as “America’s Mayor” Rudy Giuliani stated last week, but Graham said it is true that Obama “defends Islam and chastises Christians,” denies the “religious freedoms” of those who oppose abortion and gay marriage, and added that our nation is “morally crumbling within” and that “we have turned our back on God.”

There will never be any apology because the empire they are building is grounded on deception. What was good is now bad. What was true is now false. Tell the people what they want to hear, give them the things they need to occupy their minds with simple thoughts, and they will not question the relevance or motivation of your judgement. With just a few handouts and strokes of their egos, the deceived masses will become the useful idiots every elitist ruling class needs to obtain absolute power and wealth.

It’s clearly time to apologize—for every activist and journalist who bought into the simplistic, self-serving “hands up, don’t shoot” narrative and broadcast it far and wide based on false testimony; who reflexively dismissed Wilson’s side of the story as preposterous and unbelievable; who doggedly upheld a wider narrative that slanders police officers across the country as murderous racists.

Don’t apologize because someone shamed you into it, or because they're trying to sell you through advice for how to avoid debacles like this in the future. Do it because if you want to hold others accountable for their action, you need to first make sure you are accountable for your own.

So it’s time for an apology. And the line should be forming up, appropriately, on the left.

Headed our way!

MORE than 300 patients a day are having operations cancelled as the British National Health Service runs out of beds, official figures show.

Surgeons were forced to delay planned, “elective” procedures 3,113 times in the first two weeks of this month.

This is an average of 311 each working day and a rise of almost 50% on the same period two years ago. The numbers are up 16% in the last year alone.

Another 161 urgent operations — where life, limb or organs were at risk — were also cancelled in the first half of this month, up from 138 last year.

The disclosure comes amid mounting concern about the growing signs of strain in the health service. David Cameron has ordered his two most trusted “fixers” to take charge of winter planning as he seeks to ensure that there is no pre-election crisis in the NHS, Labour’s trump card.

The ascendant GOP congressional majority needs to do two things: 1. Be honest and 2. Liberate the locked-in U.S. economy. Start opening every valve the Obama Democrats turned shut. That’s the real gridlock. Voters didn’t do this just so Washington could work. Voters did this in the expectation that Washington will now enable them to work. There’s a difference. This is a bet that the class of 2014 gets it.

But what will Obama do?

Posted 146 days ago.

For decades after World War II, the U.S. economy had an annual average growth rate of 3.3%. Here are the growth rates for each year of the Obama presidency (World Bank data):

2009: -2.8%; 2010: 2.5%; 2011: 1.8%; 2012: 2.8%; 2013: 1.9%

You preside over that performance, you lose. The 2014 growth uptick arrived too late to save the Democrats. The economy was a spent political force for them.

The Obama economic policy has had essentially two prongs: 1) the 2009 stimulus bill’s Keynesian Multiplier (the government spends, and new jobs appear); and 2) let the Federal Reserve figure out the rest.

More change to come...

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!
