I like how suddenly he is pushing tax increases now for revenue but flip-flopped on the Bush tax cuts and dropped the ball. He's playing politics as much as the GOP.

Attention sheep...this is a broadcast message.

The following are my recommended, slightly-left links to have:


Slate (suggested blogs: Weigel)
Politico (suggested blogs: Ben Smith, Maggie Haberman)
FiveThirtyEight
Yglesias at ThinkProgress
Ezra Klein

Other good reads: Andrew Sullivan, Jon Chait, Kevin Drum.

when obama was elected i thought i'd have a president who was a living, breathing, human being that had common sense.......but all i've gotten since then is a carefully packaged wisvard of osv.......basically a pussy behind the curtains who can be pushed into any shitty deal as long as an annoying dog can sniff him out.

because of his foreign policy and his lack of action on many issues i will be voting for a third party in the upcoming election..............because cutting trillions in social spending while asking for a 3% increase in top tier tackes is bullshit.........they ought to be paying at least 60% since most of those fucks inherited their wealth, and the wealth they inherited and still have is a direct result of government intervention in various affairs......at tackspayers eckspense no less.

p.s. job creators is code for screwing you over while enjoying almost unprecedented profits from the stock market.....and not making any more domestic jobs.

Yes, Politico's Mike Allen is a well known leftist. Andrew Sullivan doesn't tell everyone he is a conservative every five seconds. Jon Chait is a moderate. Slate is a mix of just about everything, Weigel being a libertarian who covers the tea party.

Just shut the fuck up.

"Obama lies, economy dies. He says "default's catastrophic" then opposes deal to avert it. Nonsense. Gold stars to GOP trying to deal w/this."

Our favorite sociopath.

I think Conservapedia should be included in the links. Such a good satire site lol. I at least hope it is.

I honestly have never been able to tell if it is satire or not. I want to say it is, but I have a few family members who offer information strikingly close to what is found in the site.

Edit: this from Conservapedia: http://www.conservapedia.com/Debate:...by_liberals%3F

Is this also satire?

Same here with some of my family. It seems in line
with what they would say but the whole thing is ridiculous too.

EDIT: that link does no good for me. They could just be playing the part but also seems overtop to be fake

Raising income taxes is not going to affect people who just inherited their wealth, for fuck's sake.

I don't think its satire. The creator on the site was on Colbert Report, and tried to make the argument that Jesus was for the free market.

I don't get that argument at all yet I always hear it. He would have been a socialist.

the entire GOP field combined doesn't match President Obama's fundraising total for Q2:

Bachmann, Michele: $4,000,000 Cain, Herman: $2,460,000 Gingrich, Newt: $2,000,000 Huntsman, Jon: $4,100,000 Johnson, Gary: $180,237 Paul, Ron: $4,500,000 Pawlenty, Tim: $4,500,000 Romney, Mitt: $18,250,000 Santorum, Rick: $582,348

That adds up to about $40 million, give or take. The total haul isn't even quite that good, though, because it includes a $2 million donation from Jon Huntsman to himself, and another $2 million transfer from Michele Bachmann's congressional committee to her presidential committee. (That is, the money was raised prior to this quarter.) Meanwhile, Obama pulled in $47 million on his own, plus another $38 million for the DNC.


Via dailykos. They have the links to all the numbers. I'll link to it when I get home

Thanks for the information. Makes the whole site a bit unbearable. :)

The Libyan rebels are officially recognized by the United States as the legitimate Libyan government.
