    LOL! Got Home from Errands etc, turned on the news and Cilliza said that the Twitter thingy the President is doing, didn’t work so well when he did it during Healthcare.
    The proof to what Cilliza is saying? The Healthcare bill passed! Therefore, Cilliza might be the stupidest person in DC.
    That is all!

    [Booman ...]:

    “Barack Obama is not going to be remembered as the president who brought both parties together. He is going to be remembered as the president who took the Republicans’ best shots and then kicked their asses up and down Pennsylvania Avenue. This isn’t because he didn’t try to change the tone in Washington. It’s because his efforts to reach out were met with calls for his birth certificate and because his Heritage Foundation-inspired health care plan was called socialism and demonized. The president moved into the White House and discovered that the Republican Party had gone stark-raving mad. It took him a while to come to terms with that, but he now treats the GOP the same way any sane person treats a rabid dog.”

      Sigh. A hedge fund manager and a plastic surgeon are not my idea of ‘small business’ although these are the people that Republicans want to protect under the ‘small business’ banner.

      Some yahoo called in to Stephanie Miller this morning, saying that you can have $250,000 ‘on paper’ and be socked with ‘high’ taxes. Then you have the worst accountant on the planet: if you’ve taken every deduction possible and you’re still clearing a quarter of a million dollars, then you’re doing just fine.

      I understand that $250,000 doesn’t go as far in Manhattan than in Manhattan, Kansas. But still…….

      • December 3, 2012 at 3:21 pm

        What they always leave out of this argument is the fact that the tax cuts will still apply to the FIRST 250,000. So anyone making 250K is not going to have any tax increase. Only the amount ABOVE that will be taxed at the higher rate.

The DNC will meet [in Washington on Jan. 22], the day after President Obama is sworn in for a second term, with the primary item of business being electing party officers, including the DNC Chair.

    Good west coast morning, all!

    I’m going to have a piece up on TPV about an idea floating around that the GOP will bring the Senate tax cut bill to the floor, vote “present”, and take that off the table, supposedly leaving them in a stronger position for the fights of 2013. Here’s a taste:

    The country remembers the last debt ceiling fight; the GOP did not come out of it with accolades. It was seen as being responsible for the country’s credit being downgraded. The dynamics haven’t changed. Another debt ceiling fight will inflict further damage to the GOP. It is, furthermore, a fight they cannot win. Again, Obama won the election running on a particular economic platform. The majority of the electorate wants to see this platform enacted. Part of that platform is taking the uncertainty away from the debt ceiling kabuki. That’s why dealing with the debt ceiling is part of the Democrats’ budget offer for the lame duck session. But even if the debt ceiling is still an issue in 2013, the GOP has no greater leverage. It will be blamed if it obstructs and the nation’s credit rating suffers another blow.

    Afghanistan Horror: A 14-Year-Old Girl Is Beheaded

    [....] “She was very brutally beheaded just for refusing a marriage request,” says Nadiya Guyah, the Kunduz provincial women’s affairs director.

    [....] Sadeq, Masood, and their family had been pestering—indeed, threatening—Gastina’s father, Noor Rahman, that they would not take no for an answer to Masood’s marriage proposal. Rahman stood his ground, insisting that his daughter was too young to be engaged. Sarwar, the police spokesman, says Rahman told him that the brothers had proposed repeatedly and seemed to become angrier after each rejection. Sarwar adds that immediately after killing Gastina, the two men rushed home, changed out of their bloodstained clothes, and tried to run. The police caught them and said they looked “frightened and nervous.” Sarwar says police found bloodstained clothes and the knife used in the murder in the brothers’ home. Both men are in custody, but the charges against them, if any, are unclear.

      “Guyah, director of women’s affairs in the province, says Gastina’s brutal murder is only the latest outrage in a rising trend of violence against women in Kunduz. “We have registered 11 such cases against women in the past eight months as opposed to six last year.” She goes on to recite a long list of women who have been raped and killed. One woman was raped by four local policemen. In nearby Chardara district, a young girl’s body was found, and no one claimed it for more than one week. “We know the reason behind her death was a family problem,” Guyah says. She recalls another recent case in which a husband killed his wife for giving birth to a daughter. In yet another horrific incident, a woman and her three children were all killed by her late husband’s brother so that he could quickly get his hands on the children’s inheritance.”

    This is so cool. Pres. Obama answered her #My2K question and told her he likes her purple hair.

    So who is that girl with the purple hair that the president likes?

    Turn’s out, it’s Mandi Roberts, an unemployed 24-year-old from Morgantown, W.V., who asked President Obama on Twitter how an extension of middle-class tax cuts would help someone in her position. The president replied that GOP plans to cut spending without raising revenue would threaten student loans, work, study and college tax credits. “Bad for growth. like your hair! –bo,” he Tweeted.

    When POLITICO reached her a short time later, she said she was still shaking from the shock of it all. Roberts is a fan of British TV and film who describes herself as a liberal atheist humanist who has “permament gay-goggles on.” She told POLITICO that she voted for Obama this year and in 2008.

    “I support him because I agree with the majority of his policies,” she said. “He supports equal marriage rights and is such a good diplomat. He understands and vocally supports women’s rights to equal pay and that we should be the only ones making decisions about our bodies and health care.”

Boehner’s “counter offer” calls for LOWERING the top tax rate with a revision of the tax code next year. “The proposal calls for $800 billion in higher tax collections through an overhaul of the tax code next year that would push the top rate below the current level of 35 percent and raise cash by wiping out loopholes and deductions.” http://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/boehner-house-gop-leaders-offer-fiscal-cliff-counter-proposal/2012/12/03/694dbc1e-3d84-11e2-a2d9-822f58ac9fd5_story.html

    Senate Democrats on Monday launched a last-minute effort to salvage a United Nations treaty on the rights of people with disabilities ahead of Tuesday’s vote.

    Flanked by military veterans as well as blind and wheelchair-bound advocates, several Democratic leaders and Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) called Tea Party-fueled objections to the treaty “mythologies.” 

    Supporters of the treaty might be a few votes short of winning the 67 votes needed for passage.

    Because the tea baggers hate the UN!

      How ironic that McCain would be calling someone else’s unfounded objections “mythologies”, when he’s been working to destroy a worthy woman’s legacy based on his own “mythologies”. He’s such a hypocrite.

    Another evangelical mega-church pastor goes down in a blaze of disgrace—-resigns in light of affair, violence, charges of spousal abuse, fear for safety of children, alcohol and substance abuse etc. etc.—–

      Yawn… BOOORING! Sorry, but if I’m supposed to pay attention to this new scandal, I’m gonna at least need some salacious emails or video involving a politician, super spy, or reality show personality and even that better be really kinky. I’ve just got too many sex scandals to keep up with, okay? Some of them will just have to be weeded out. My time is precious!

      Yep…the “Immoral” majority that prays to “corporate” Jesus and wants to protect the fetus (if it’s male) but hates the child and disrespects women.

    Sigh! I’m all for personal & artistic freedom, but I just find it really sad that our culture has devolved to the point where people find watching another person (albeit willingly) get shocked is good TV entertainment.

      You know if there was a show “torturing” animals it would probably NEVER see the light of day……yet torturing human beings is entertaining? I can not bear to watch anything like this. It’s hard for me to watch movies where animals, kids, or people get hurt. It physically makes me sick to my stomach eventhough I know it is not real.

    Voting numbers don’t lie—-voter suppression efforts in Fl. resulted in voting numbers down in 2012 from 2008 numbers—-limiting early voting, unbelievably long lines and waits—–hours long—–many gave up——and still determined voters gave the state to Obama

    The White House blasted a counteroffer from House Republicans on debt talks as failing to “meet the test of balance.” …

    Ya think?

    So, now the fucking Tea bagging senators are saying they will not support the Disabilities treaty over abortion issues!

    Nice write-up of Obama praising Sen. Lugar for his nuclear disarmament efforts at his award ceremony by Defense Dept. today—-some comedy included about Obama’s first trip with Lugar in this endeavor—-

    I think this was mentioned earlier today, but I can’t believe Ben Smith has a story on Buzzfeed, “How America Learned to Love Mitt Romney”. What??????????? No, America never learned to love Mitt Romney. What a piece of dishonest putrid trash. Smith should be embarrassed trying to make that hilarious case.

      as i recall, the article is a list of all that’s despicable about myth, but then says, since he’s now also a total loser, appearing defeated and disheveld in public, folks start to think, aw, maybe he’s a human after all. that was my read of it anyway–a joke.
