We Came. We Saw. We Kicked Ass. Congrats Tea Party!

We sent an unmistakable message to Obama & Co

We Are The Champions

The Tea Party Patriots and us Mama Grizzlies mauled the DEM House Majority up one side and down the other.

And while the DEMs managed to hang on to their Fire-Walled races, it cost their financial backers blood and treasure that can not be replaced.

As for Massachusetts House District 4, you people are as insane as Barney Frank. You both deserve each other and are a world wide laughing stock.

Alan Grayson? I have one of many voter reactions to share with you regarding your loss of the Florida House seat:

Harry Reid? We will be investigating voter fraud in your re-election, sir.
You have NOT heard the last from us. You miserable S.O.B.

Then there is the matter of the current Speaker of the House, Nancy the Swamp Monster. We sent a message to that Socialist Meathead… with her twitching and her over-sized monstrosity of a gavel:

All in all it was a great night last night. Patriots of the wordpress Conservative Blog Network made the blog’s election party a smashing success as we gathered as eagles to watch and comment. Thank you to each and every one who joined in and shared the camaraderie and love!

Obama has a problem now… he has to admit his is a rejected brand. Will he do that? I don’t think so. Rather, I expect him to further split the country into “His Friends” and “His Enemies,” the biggest and most powerful “enemy” of which he will see as…

The Mighty Tea Party Grassroots Coalition
The Dread of Socialists and Communists

We proved last night that we are a force to be reckoned with. Not too bad for a year old movement. According to a FOX & Friends quoted statistic this morning, 40% of American Voters identify/agree with the Tea Party on the issues.

The future looks brighter for us Tea Party Americans who are taking their country’s need of TLC seriously. No more sleeping.

    A congressman was seated next to a little girl on an airplane so he turned to her and said, “Do you want to talk? Flights go quicker if you strike up a conversation with your fellow passenger.”

    The little girl, who had just started to read her book, replied to the total stranger, “What would you want to talk about?”

    “Oh, I don’t know,” said the congressman. “How about global warming, universal health care, or stimulus packages?” as he smiled smugly.

    “OK,” she said. “Those could be interesting topics but let me ask you a question first. A horse, a cow, and a deer all eat the same stuff – grass. Yet, a deer excretes little pellets, while a cow turns out a flat patty, but a horse produces clumps. Why do you suppose that is?”

    The legislator, visibly surprised by the little girl’s intelligence, thinks about it and says, “Hmmm, I have no idea.”

    To which the little girl replies, “Do you really feel qualified to discuss global warming, universal health care, or the economy, when you don’t know shit?”

    And then she went back to reading her book.

    Yes, today at 1pm eastern, Obama is scheduled to hold a rare for him, press conference. He hunkered down yesterday and closed the WH issuance of statements through the election day slaughter of his previous House Majority and mauling of his majority in the Senate. Reid now presides over an anemic 3 seat majority. lol

    And, Nancy Pelosi is now a limping duck who will be deprived of her Air Force Gulf Stream Jet. HAHAHAHA Call United Airlines for a ride, Nancy, you freeking has-been.

    So Obama is going to cut and run too, heading to India for an all expenses paid by taxpayer trip (200 million a DAY!)

    That’s just like a Socialist who professes to care about the middle-class.

  34. VotingFemale says:

    Florida made me proud. I don’t think Floridians approved of Rubio being called a ‘Coconut’ by the Socialist Racists. (Coconut- Brown on the outside; White on the inside) And they don’t want to be associated with an asshat like Crist who is a full blown socialist scumbagger milking the GOP of oxygen and money for his run for the senate as a republican… and switched to Indy to scam voters who wanted a conservative for their Senator.

    This was a woman the Commie Horde was hunting with swords drawn…

    Michele Bachmann

    And Michele was protected by the tea party and will return to the House in Victory!

    Bachmann prevails in costly clash in 6th Congressional District

    Riding the Republican wave, Minnesota’s own “tea party” icon Michele Bachmann notched a third congressional term Tuesday night with her largest margin of victory at any level.

    It was the apex of an unlikely and sometimes strange political journey that now seems poised to elevate Bachmann into the highest circles of power in Washington. The Bachmann camp signaled that she would seek a leadership post within the new House Republican majority, perhaps chair of the Republican Conference.

    “If that opportunity came along, she would consider it,” spokesman Sergio Gor said.

    Bachmann gave her acceptance speech after the Associated Press called the race but before DFL candidate Tarryl Clark conceded. Despite Bachmann’s 52 percent to 41 percent lead, Clark’s concession speech did not come until an hour after Bachmann’s victory remarks.

    Taking the stage at a GOP fete in a Bloomington hotel, Bachmann reached out to the tea party supporters she has embraced by reaching back to a quote from one of the founding women of the country.

    “The proceedings of our citizens have been united, spirited and firm. The flame is kindled and like lightning it catches from soul to soul,” Bachmann said, quoting Abigail Adams, wife of American Revolution-era President John Adams.

    Despite raising more money than all but a handful of House candidates, Clark ran an uphill race in a Republican-leaning 6th Congressional District and against the torrid fundraising pace of Bachmann, whose
    $11 million set a record for House races nationwide.

    With almost no funding, Independence Party candidate Bob Anderson had 6 percent of the vote.

    Although she raised $4 million herself and got some high-profile help from former President Bill Clinton, Clark struggled in the headwinds of an electorate that tilted heavily toward Republicans.

    Bachmann first entered politics in the 1980s through the same door many young conservatives did — by waging an upstart campaign in a local school board race in Stillwater. The mother of five and former foster mother of 23 then won election to the state Senate and in 2006 won her first congressional race.

    Along the way, Bachmann has demonstrated an uncanny knack for rallying conservatives and infuriating Democrats, the reason most often cited for the record fundraising in her race.

    Her claims have caught the attention of fact-checkers in the media, and she famously imperiled her 2008 re-election bid by telling MSNBC host Chris Matthews that the media should investigate members of Congress for anti-American views.

    It was among the many strange moments during her career, and the two shared another odd moment Tuesday night.

    Appearing via satellite on MSNBC, Matthews asked if Bachmann would issue subpoenas to Democrats now that Republicans control the House.

    Without answering the question, Bachmann called on House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to extend the Bush-era tax cuts beyond the current year, a popular theme of her campaign.

    “The first thing we’re going to do is set the economy in order,” Bachmann said.

    After Matthews asked again and got the same answer, he told Bachmann: “You seem like you’re in a trance tonight. You give me the same answer no matter what I ask you.”

    Matthews concluded by congratulating Bachmann: “You’ll never be defeated on your philosophy, which is to investigate everyone for everything.”

    Clark finally conceded after 11 p.m. She congratulated Bachmann but blasted her negative ads. She said 6th District residents would face the same problems today as when they woke up on Election Day and said she hoped Bachmann would work for them.

    “She may have won tonight, but she didn’t beat us,” Clark said to supporters gathered at a downtown St. Cloud nightclub.

    Despite the $15 million supporters of both candidates pumped into the race, Bachmann and Clark debated just three times before Election Day.

    Largely, Bachmann kept above the fray and let her ads do the talking. With a massive war chest, she flooded the airwaves, often with attacks on Clark. Bachmann pointed to Clark’s tie-breaking vote on a bill, later vetoed, to raise taxes on the richest Minnesotans and her support for a ballot measure, later approved by voters, to increase sales taxes to improve the outdoors and the arts.

    Clark accused Bachmann of caring little about her district, highlighting Bachmann’s national media appearances and travels for fundraisers in other states. She slammed Bachmann for her position on Social Security and her willingness to secure federal stimulus funds for the district despite her overall opposition to the Obama administration’s economic recovery plan.

    When the two debated in the week before the election, the exchanges were testy, with each candidate pointedly accusing the other of misrepresenting the other’s position.

    Significant questions remain for each candidate.

    With Bachmann’s re-election, what kind of role will she play in the new Republican House majority?

    Having established the House Tea Party Caucus, Bachmann has positioned herself for a leadership role among the new wave of conservatives swept into office Tuesday. But it’s no secret some Republicans are uncomfortable with her profile, particularly her outspoken views.

    And for Clark, what does the future hold? Despite the loss, all eyes turn to 2012.

    Political insiders saw her run as a test for the next cycle of congressional races — she might not beat Bachmann, but she’ll be well-positioned for the next election cycle, particularly if the 6th District is reshaped during redistricting to be more favorable to Democrats.

    Sami, the importance of what you have stated can not be understated.
    Ohio is the most important state there is to Obama & Co. As Ohio goes, so goes the nation. and his worship knows this in spades. That is why he visited Ohio 12 times and Biden 7 times. It was a waste of their time and our treasure.

  43. VotingFemale says:

    You heard correctly, Fox. Michele Bachmann created the Tea Party Caucus in the House this year. Done Deal.

    And it killed Pelosi’s soul to be forced to approve it… had she not there would have been political hell to pay.

  62. VotingFemale says:

    Good Morning Liberty!

    There is only one Sarah Palin. That is a fact.

  63. VotingFemale says:

    Lisa Murkowski was not quite declaring victory in her long-shot bid to retain her Senate seat, and her closest opponent, Joe Miller, a Sarah Palin-backed Tea Party insurgent, certainly was not conceding.

    It may be weeks before all those write-in ballots are manually opened and read and it is known whether Ms. Murkowski pulled off the upset of the night. If Ms. Murkowski succeeds, her victory will be counted pretty much everywhere as a loss for Ms. Palin, a leading light of the Tea Party movement who will have failed to put her chosen candidate, Mr. Miller, over the top in her home state.

    The outcome of the race here will not affect the balance of power in the United States Senate. The Democrats will keep enough seats to maintain control whatever happens, and it appeared on Wednesday that Scott McAdams, the Democrat in the race here, would most likely not be in the running.

    But, as the denouement of the latest chapter in a family feud between the Murkowskis and the Palins, the drama playing out in Alaska continued to attract national attention.

    The Murkowski campaign had used unconventional means to wage her unconventional campaign — from wristbands to homespun jingles and omnipresent advertisements showing how to spell her name. Now lawyers from both Republican campaigns are standing by to contest ballots. The only standard that Alaskan voting authorities have announced is the ability to determine “voter intent.”

  64. VotingFemale says:

    Mass Sucks, Fox. They are a matched pair.

    Foxwood says

    Doesn’t Mass. realize Frank sucks!?

    No wait… maybe better wording could be used…

  67. VotingFemale says:

    Would he have ever been elected as a Senator?
    That he never ran for senator tells you something.

  77. VotingFemale says:

    You will notice that because Gillibrand is a Democrat who was not engaged in a primary battle with a DEM favorite son, suffered virtually no sexist attacks from DEMs and not from Conservatives for the most part.

    The RAGE is from Socialists who falsely believe they own the Female Gender… and it enrages them that is not the case. the only minority voter group owned by the Socialists are most of the black race. And that too is not really in the bag anymore. Many DEM blacks have woken up to the dead-end hype of the Democrat Party and are deserting to the middle or right of middle. Their salvation is not a nanny government “taking care of them” because that is a pipe dream and because it permanently denies them any real hope of personal success, American Style.

    Cuba: Threat of Capitalist Restoration — New Pro-Capitalist Measures Introduced by Raul Castro
    Nov 2, 2010
    By Tony Saunois

    In September 2010 the Cuban government announced a series of economic “modernisations”. Among the most significant of these was the proposal to slash 500,000 jobs in the state sector by March 2011 as a first step to reducing employment by 1 million. Licenses are to be issued by the state to allow the creation of self-employed persons (“cuentapropistas”) with the legal right to employ other employees, not just family members.

    These measures are the governments’ response to a worsening economic situation which has gripped the country, resulting in worsening living standards, food shortages and a deteriorating quality of life for the mass of the population. The “reforms” have opened a discussion within Cuba and amongst socialists internationally about the future of Cuba and the planned economy – which although weakened by bureaucratic measures at the moment remains largely intact – and the prospect of capitalist restoration. Such a development, should it take place, would represent a set back for workers and the labour movement world wide. It would undoubtedly be used by the capitalist class internationally, and especially in Latin America, to discredit the idea of “socialism” and propagate the idea that capitalism is the only viable social system.

    I’m standing by myself
    Go play with someone else
    I can see by what you carry that you come from Barrytown

    Don’t believe I’m taken in by stories I have heard
    I just read the Daily News and swear by every word
    And don’t think that I’m out of line
    For speaking out for what is mine
    I’d like to see you do just fine
    But look at what you wear
    And the way you cut your hair

    I can see by what you carry that you come from Barrytown

    In the beginning we recall that the word was hurled
    Barrytown people got to be from another world

    Leave me or I’ll be just like the others you will meet
    They won’t act as kindly if they see you on the street
    And don’t you scream or make a shout
    It’s nothing you can do about
    It was there where you came out
    It’s a special lack of grace
    I can see it in your face

    I can see by what you carry that you come from Barrytown

    You know who was a big loser in this election? George Soros.
    By: Mark Hemingway
    Commentary Staff Writer
    11/03/10 4:45 PM EDT

    While Democrats went out of their way to portray the Koch brothers as evil billionaires puppeteering this election, I’d venture they feel pretty good about the outcome. However, after last night I’d venture that that George Soros is one unhappy Hungarian.

    Where the Kochs stood accused of funding some well-known grassroots political groups, Soros has been heavily invested in some pretty shady attempts at electioneering for Democrats. And fortunately, these efforts aren’t going very well.

    The first notable thing is Soros’ funding of the Secretary of State Project — which is basically an attempt to elect Secretaries of State around the country willing to impose Democratic-friendly election laws in an attempt to tilt the playing field in their favor on election day.

    Well, yesterday Republicans won 17 of 26 races for Secretary of State taking six of those offices (Arkansas, Ohio, New Mexico, Colorado, Iowa and Kansas) from Democrats. Republicans now control 25 offices to Democrats 22.

    And then there was Soros’ backing of a measure in California to put control of redistricting back in the hands of the state legislature, a move that would obviously benefit Democrats. It failed, while another measure to give California’s Citizens Redistricting Commission increased authority over redrawing congressional districts:

    California voters approved a ballot measure financed largely by Charles Munger Jr., son of Berkshire Hathaway Inc.’s Charles Munger, that strips California lawmakers of responsibility for drawing the boundaries of congressional districts.

    Proposition 20 was winning 65 percent to 35 percent, with 17 percent of precincts counted, according to the Associated Press. The measure puts the task of reshaping the districts represented by California’s 53 members of the House of Representatives into the hands of a Citizens Redistricting Commission.

    Proposition 27, a competing measure backed by billionaire George Soros, unions and Democratic Party leaders to disband the commission and return districting powers to lawmakers, was losing, 61 percent to 39 percent.

    I’m sure Soros will keep pushing his agenda, but for now, two big ticket items of his have been stymied.

    Hi all! Great comments from Orca, Tellit (I favorited that kitty vid!) Sam, Foxwood, Bob Mack, and Arlene!

    I watched live, Obama’s press conference and noted the total anger he can not hide with his flashy RA eyes. awwww… poor baby! You got kicked in the balls! So much for “No weapons formed against me shall prosper.” What a totally asshat arrogant quote from the crap-ball sufferer with a double Liberal Gene. This guy makes me GAG. Well, Obama?

    On another note, I was unavoidably involved outside the blog this afternoon and evening preparing for a major life change. More on that later, but a RL change is on the horizon… a good change, a welcome and happy change that will add a new dimension to my blogging efforts.

    Sam, I missed a comment you made last evening and discovered it later, after the fact. You asked about Champagne Flutes, the thoughts of which makes my heart flutter.

    This is a picture of a Champagne Flute http://www.wineaccessoriesandwineglasses.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/01/r-croft-champ-flute.jpg

    That picture is very close to the way mine looks… except mine have a tight twisting of the crystal glass starting in the lower section and gradually widening all the way to the top giving them a spiraled look. I just love the way they look.

    Hubs gives me a good-natured ribbing about my crystal fetish but even he admits the elegant beauty of my collected use-specific sets. I acquired my love of beautiful crystal from my Mother. He should count his lucky stars I did not acquire my Mother’s love of solid sterling silverware, of which she had at least three sets. hahaha 😉

    Reason for this long slender design for imbibing champagne is the visual enjoyment of watching the bubble strings as they rise up the narrow slender flute.

    I readily admit I have a long standing love affair with elegant crystal of which I have a displayed collection. Each set of crystal is for a different purpose, but my champagne flutes are my favorites by far… next is the set of hand crafted crystal brandy snifters. Though I do not care for brandy itself, I do enjoy using them for premium El Patrón Añejo Tequila and French made orange liqueur, Grand Marnier Cordon Rouge (pronounced Marn-‘Yea), and Amaretto Di Saronno, all of of which are highly aromatic, the vapors of which are actually slightly intoxicating and enjoyable to “snift,” between small sips. lol

    I saw this the other day, when Pelosi was asked what is next for her
    “I’ll have a conversation with my caucus, I’ll have a conversation with my family, and pray over it, and decide how to go forward,” said Pelosi. “But today isn’t that day.”
    I suspect Satin is a little to busy to get back to her prayers just now even if she is his spawn.
    In the past and in some armies they would give her a pistol, one bullet and expect her to do the right thing
    Unless you were from the imperial staff in 1945
    Can you say Harakiri or maybe Seppuku, just a tanto and a little swish of the wrist before a live audience.
    Alas I suppose living with being who she is become punishment enough.
    After all she is worth more alive as a lesson in depravity greed, and insanity.
    And the fact that even Hitler was overwhelmingly elected more than once, providing that if lied to enough some people will vote for anyone.
    And noting that German Jews also voted for Hitler, they though his book was just propaganda and he really was not like what he wrote and said.

  164. Orca says:

    What time is it
    Time to let the people we elected know what we expect from them.
    Time to let the ones that were not up for election know what is going to happen to them if they cross us
    And lastly,
    Time to let Gomer in Chef bammer know he is one vote away from extinction

  165. Orca says:

    To those who think the election is over
    we have only done the first part of the work
    Like any good dump, the first part involves the most work and strain.
    The second part, cleans up and completes the work already done.
    With out the second part the job is not complete
    With out the second part the stink still remains.

    Now it starts to get real… the reality is setting in for both DEM and GOP elected and elected designated lawmakers.

    Obama, true to prediction, failed to acknowledge yesterday that his agenda is to blame for the DEM Congress STOMP by WeThePeople. Instead he will forge on with executive power abuse and back-handed methods which bends the law against the wishes of the American Majority.


  177. VotingFemale says:

    It was reported that the tsunami that drowned the DEM House wiped out a whole generation of new DEM lawmakers… it will take them at least 10 years to try to replace them. This is a big deal. It was reported this is the biggest STOMP of DEMS in the house since 1938.

    You can also be rest-assured, Sam, you — by virtue of flying that B-29 in the skies of Twitter, are clearly on the WH early warning radar screen. #p2 has its paid communist operatives who’s job it is to identify and track “their enemy.”

    Without a doubt, the WH learned of my tweet that resulted in the Huffington Post F-Bomb hit piece on me. They are just that paranoid and full of hate… looking to punish the messengers for the MEGA-STOMPING of the DEM Party.

    O is very connected with his internet army of bloggers and tweeterers. It really is a political war you have signed up for. I showed up on the )-radar back in the iCry days… and I know for a fact, CNN iCry staff at iCry read this blog every single day. Hello, DavidW. Told ya what Obama was… two years ago… and I was on the mark. Now the majority of the American Public knows what I and others here knew then.

  189. VotingFemale says:

    Well… now it is time to shift the ole blog gears and focus on the next phase of the political war since we have won a very serious battle. the DEM Congress and the WH is also shifting gears damaged though they are. Their power has been irreversibly crippled but they are still quite dangerous.

    Time to get off the laurels of the win and start exercising our newly gained political powers, not the least of which is we have the majority of WeThePeople watching our backs. Thus, the hardest part has been accomplished.

  190. VotingFemale says:

    So… ask yourselves… if you were on O’s team what would you have as political tools, schemes and weapons with which to continue pushing that radical communist agenda?

    You can be sure they are taking inventory as we speak.

  191. Foxwood says:

    Working from home today… unless I get called out. I have alot of paper work to get done today. That’s why I’m long between comments.

  192. VotingFemale says:

    One of the tools is of course, propaganda… direct propaganda from the mouths of Obama, Reid, Pelosi, lesser politicians and of course their megaphones, the lamestream media.

    Never let a crisis go to waste… they will tout the recession which rightfully would have ended long before now had they not intentionally misused funds in ways to extend and worsen the economic situation while claiming they “diverted a full blown depression.”

    Counter-propaganda to expose that lie for what it is will help but most folks know it is bull crap.

    Watch the news from the lamestream media and guest appearances of the top DEM politicians and top DEM pundits. They will reveal their plans but spun in a way to make them look benign.

  193. samiam60 says:

    VF, you put a lot of thoughts out there this morning. I am also thinking about my future missions and what they should deal with. So far, I am thinking it is imperative that we be observant and expose each and every Socialist plot/agenda we see coming forth from this Administration. Getting the word out has been our greatest weapon these past two years and now more and more Americans are a wake and tuning in to events as they unfold.

  194. VotingFemale says:

    The following is a primer, a roughing out, of where Obama is most likely to go to circumvent a congress that is no longer in his pocket. In other words, to circumvent the will of the WeThePeople majority. After all, what do “stupid little people know.” That attitude is their Achilles heel.

    Obama Can Pursue Ambitious Agenda Without Congress’s Help
    First Posted: 11- 4-10 08:34 AM | Updated: 11- 4-10 09:30 AM

    If President Obama wants to pursue a progressive agenda in the next two years, there are plenty of ways he can do that even without any help from Capitol Hill.

    At his post-election news conference on Wednesday, Obama offered more lip service to the notion of compromise. But the fact remains that the next Congress looks to be hopelessly gridlocked. The opposition party is more radicalized than ever. And the only thing the resurgent GOP seems prepared to even discuss with Obama is cutting taxes.

    So the big question will be what lesson Obama takes from Tuesday’s election results. If he and his advisors are finally ready to acknowledge that the source of voter unhappiness was government ineffectiveness — rather than government overreach, or a general economic malaise — then there’s plenty of room for him to maneuver on his own.

    Indeed, progressives are urging him to seize the opportunity to take a more muscular approach with his executive powers, starting by getting much tougher on banks. They also hope Obama will use his regulatory authority, his enforcement powers, and his prerogatives as commander in chief to make decisive moves that can’t be sabotaged by Congressional Republicans.

    The basic message: So much for the prime minister routine, it’s time to act like a president.

    “The most important thing the president has to communicate is strength,” said Neera Tanden, a top official at the Center for American Progress. “One of the lessons of history is that the president stands apart from Congress… He has to think about ways he can lead the country without his fate being tied to the Hill.”

    “There’s tons of things that can be done,” said Damon Silvers, policy director of the AFL-CIO. “The administration has a vast capacity to act to improve the lives of ordinary Americans, regardless of what happens in Congress.”

    The worry, however, is that Obama will be so focused on reaching out to Republican leaders that he will be either uninterested in or afraid of being confrontational in his executive actions.

    “The question is not can Obama do things,” Silvers told HuffPost. “The question is will he? Will the administration do the things it can do?”

    The president of the United States oversees a massive regulatory apparatus that, when wielded appropriately, can help level the playing field for the middle class.

    And nowhere it that more necessary right now than in the financial world. The recent financial reform legislation, known as Dodd-Frank, created a Consumer Financial Protection Bureau and gave regulators new authorities they have yet to use.

    “Under the Dodd-Frank Act, they have a huge amount of executive power to press banks to give relief to people with underwater mortgages,” author and editor Robert Kuttner told The Huffington Post.

    Regulators could go in and do real audits of the banks, he said, instead of “conspiring in the fiction that a lot of toxic mortgage paper is worth 100 cents on the dollar, when everyone knows it isn’t.”

    Those real audits would find many big banks insolvent, allowing the regulators (under the new rules) to dissolve them — or, at the very least, force them to do such civic-minded things as write-down mortgage principals and increase lending to small businesses.

    There’s also the issue of pursuing possible criminal charges. “You could do an enormous amount with prosecutions in banking,” said Robert Borosage, co-director of the Campaign for America’s Future. “That would help both politically — in terms of showing which side you’re on — and in terms of accountability in the financial sector, by curbing the tendency to go back and reopen the casino.”

    Fill In Dodd-Frank’s Blanks

    “Because Dodd-Frank left so many things to the regulators, in truth much of the bill has yet to be written,” Damon Silvers told HuffPost.

    “There is very significant delegation to the administrative agencies to figure out how they’re going to carry out the spirit of the law,” said Robert Weissman, president of Public Citizen. And because regulatory implementation “plays to the strength of the insiders,” as Weissman puts it, the process “will require a commitment by the administration to stand up to powerful corporate interests”

    “Dodd-Frank is being lobbied to death all over again,” Kuttner said. “You’ve got a handful of labor and consumer lobbyists going against hundreds of industry lawyers. If you were willing to be publicly tough on Wall Street, you could turn that into decent politics.”

    Climate Change and Immigration

    Cap and trade legislation and comprehensive immigration reform are two of the most obvious casualties of the rise to power of House Republicans. But some progressives think Obama could unilaterally make progress in both areas.

    “I think there will be a lot of action on the executive front,” said longtime Washington observer Norman Ornstein, the American Enterprise Institute’s house liberal. And at the head of his list is the area of carbon emissions.

    “The Supreme Court has basically given the EPA the authority to regulate carbon emissions,” Ornstein explained. In theory that means Obama could impose a cap and trade system solely by executive authority.

    “It won’t work that way,” Ornstein said. But Obama’s EPA could go part way, by focusing on regulations for utilities — or the president could use the threat of EPA action as leverage on getting some kind of energy bill through Congress after all.

    At his press conference on Wednesday, Obama certainly kept his options open, noting that greenhouse gases are now considered to be under EPA’s jurisdiction, then expressing his desire to find some agreement with Republicans.

    But, he said: “I think it’s too early to say whether or not we can make some progress on that front. I think we can.” Then he added: “Cap and trade was just one way of skinning the cat; it was not the only way. It was a means, not an end. And I’m going to be looking for other means to address this problem.”

    The president could even usher in a new era of more humane immigration policy on his own. Deportations of undocumented immigrants have actually increased since he took office.

    Robert Borosage thinks the president should not only reverse that, but should make big changes simply by tweaking enforcement.

    “You could try to carve out new rules,” Borosage said, “so that if you were paying taxes, you wouldn’t be deported, or if you were in school, you wouldn’t be deported.”

    In other words, Obama could create a path to de facto legalization. “That,” Borosage said, “would be controversial.”

    Even Campaign Finance?

    There’s zero chance a Republican House is going to limit money in politics. But Obama on his own could roll back some of the excesses of the 2010 election.

    The Supreme Court’s January decision in Citizens United allowed, among other things, for nonprofit groups to spend unlimited amounts of anonymous money on campaign ads.

    Obama can’t oveturn that ruling — but he could clamp down on the abuse of nonprofit rules that fueled this year’s explosion of secret money.

    “You could have the IRS revamp its regulations involving 501(C)4s and 501(C)6s,” suggested Ornstein. Some of the most controversial political spending this year came from groups organized under those sections of the tax law.

    “A good part of the problem goes way beyond Citizens United,” Ornstein said. “There have been very fuzzy regulations about what these non-profit organizations that are supposed to be educational are actually supposed to do.” According to the rules, 501(c)4s must spend their money exclusively on “charitable, educational, or recreational purposes.”

    “There’s simply no doubt that organizations like American Crossroad GPS are basically thumbing their noses at the clear intent of the law,” Ornstein said. Were the IRS to classify them properly, he said, “donors could theoretically be held liable for at least a gift tax — as well as disclosure of who they are.”

    Enforcement and Rulemaking

    “The main thing I would recommend is enforcement — much more vigorous enforcement,” said Rena Steinzor, a law professor at the University of Maryland and president of the pro-regulation Center for Progressive Reform. “The laws are so under-enforced that you could make a lot of progress in terms of health and safety hazards through tougher enforcement.”

    More aggressive civil and criminal prosecutions would have particularly dramatic effects, she said, in areas like mine safety, imported food, Clean Water Act violations and dirty coal-fired power plants.

    And Obama also needs to stop his White House’s Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs (OIRA) from crippling his own regulatory agenda; Steinzor points the finger at OIRA director Cass Sunstein, who she said “frets more about cost-benefit analyses than about regularly capture.”

    Public Citizen’s Weissman, similarly, is hoping for an uptick in the “everyday enforcement of everything from meat inspection to FDA review to workplace safety monitoring.

    “One interesting case is what happens with BP,” he said, “including what kind of criminal charges are leveled against it, and what fines it has to pay, and whether the government will seek to debar BP from holding federal contracts.”

    Weissman would like to see the government throw the book at the rogue oil company. “The full weight of the law ought to be brought to bear against BP. We’ll see what happens.”

    Foreign Policy and the Commander In Chief

    One area where a Republican House doesn’t put a crimp on Obama’s plans is foreign policy — and some progressives are hoping the president rededicates himself to some of the agenda he described during the 2008 campaign.

    Steve Clemons, a senior fellow at the New America Foundation, is hopeful that Obama will reinvigorate the Israeli-Palestinian peace process, ideally by getting rid of the “status quo incrementalists” currently on his national security staff. “He’s got to do something other than this tired, constantly defeated set of negotiations,” Clemons said.

    As for Afghanistan, congressional Republicans “are going to complain about whatever he does, so he might as well do the smart thing,” Clemons said. “He should realize he’s in a Vietnam War moment, and reduce and refocus the mission.”

    Ornstein adds: “If you can’t do treaties, there’s a lot that you can do through executive agreements.”

    And human rights activists are hoping Obama will unilaterally stop the military’s “Don’t Ask Don’t Tell” ban on openly gay soldiers — something he could easily do in his role as commander in chief. While only Congress or the courts can actually overturn the law, Obama could nevertheless halt the discharges. “He could actually suspend enforcement,” said Borosage.

    Trade policy is one of the few things Obama can affect unilaterally that could have a direct impact on job creation. He could, for instance, insist on stricter enforcement of trade accords and could demand that exporting countries including China adjust their currencies and economies. “The big thing is the bully pulpit,” said Borosage. “I think it’s really important.”

    Drawing a line with China or letting the dollar drop could put millions of Americans back to work.

    Odds and Ends

    Robert Kuttner recently advocated in the American Prospect on behalf of two presidential measures: Stepped up enforcement of existing labor laws that prohibit such things as phony classifications of workers as temps or contract hires; and the establishment of new rules for government contracting to reward good labor practices and punish scofflaws.

    Taking a stand on behalf of decent wages for workers, Kuttner said, isn’t just good policy. “It also has the virtue of getting him on the side of ordinary people, which he doesn’t seem to be too good at the optics of.”

    And CAP’s Tanden pointed out that presidents can accomplish a lot simply by forcing people to be in the same room with them. “President Clinton did a lot of things where he essentially used the convening power of the president to push an agenda,” Tanden said, “literally using the power of the president to push and goad.”

    That’s how Obama got auto executives to agree to increased fuel standards.

    Next up, he could conceivably set up meetings with major business and financial leaders, and try to jawbone them into taking some of the mounds of money they are sitting on and spend it or invest it in ways that would create jobs.

    A New Crew

    And of course Obama could clean house.

    “The single best thing he could do is fire [Treasury Secretary Tim] Geithner,” Kuttner said. “Get some people in there who speak for Main Street.”

    Even if he doesn’t fire anyone, there are plenty of resignations to deal with. “The question is going to be: Are they trying to send a message by bringing in business executives and insiders and maybe a smattering of Republicans?” Weissman asked. “Or are they bringing in independent voices who will aggressively enforce the law against corporate wrongdoers and deal with the very serious problems the country’s facing?”

    The Limits Of Executive Power

    There is, then, an awful lot Obama can do without having to strike a deal with speaker-to-be John Boehner. But there are limits to his executive power.

    Congress, after all, controls the purse strings. And aside from what can be accomplished through changes in trade policy and jawboning, as noted above, job creation generally costs money.

    “I think the big challenge for the president is that he has to focus on the economy, and that’s a concern that requires a lot of bigger items than you can do just through executive authority,” Tanden said.

    “The urgency around action to create jobs just grows with every passing day, and that’s going to require engaging with Congress and having a plan for engaging with Congress,” said Silvers.

    “But engaging with Congress doesn’t mean engaging at the lowest common denominator level,” he said. “Anything that’s going to be effective in addressing the country’s economic pain, Congress will not be open to doing, at least not the first day in session.”

    It’s bad enough that the Republicans are bound to oppose stimulus measures of the kind and scale that economists agree are necessary to jump-start the economy and fuel job creation. But they actually want to shrink government and cut spending — at exactly the wrong time.

    How hard Obama will fight them on that is still not clear. “My fear,” Kuttner said, “is that he’s going to decide that the way to win the hearts of the American people is to restore austerity.”

    The best-case scenario, ultimately, may be that Obama will no longer be the only one taking the blame for continued high unemployment.

    “The very brutal math the president has faced is that he pushes a progressive agenda, the Republicans obstruct at every opportunity, and he’s the only one held accountable for its failure,” Tanden said.

    “Now that math will shift. Republicans will determine what happens in the House, and if things don’t happen, they’ll own part of the responsibility for failure.”

    It means the dollar is losing value. A $25 dollar spike in gold was reported this morning. This Monetizing of the debt, printing extra dollars then using that to buy back government bonds drives up the price of government bonds and forces their interest earning power to drop. Many people are long term invested in US Government Bonds and the yield of those bonds dropping is robbing investors who invested for their retirement. The debt they have run up in the last two years is towering and now they print bogus dollars to reduce that debt. These actions will trigger inflation.

    But we now have power as well and we damn well better exercise it as part of the Tea Party Grassroot Coalition. It is we who can go rogue and employ tactics that is parallel to what the GOP does… and we need to keep the GOP on track. Expect opponents of Sarah Palin within the GOP to attack both her and us. It is going to happen. Some of those attackers are there to try and stop the Tea Party Coalition’s power… and her power.

    There will be a serious power struggle on the Conservative side of the fence for control. Politicians are not accustomed to having their power tampered with by “the little stupid people.”

    We are living in possibly the most historic times since the American Revolution of 1776. Though this is not a shooting war… it is a war waged on the internet and in the media and on Capital Hill and the White House…

    We conservative bloggers have an even greater role to play now going forward… many of whom do not yet realize the power in their hands and how to most effectively use it.

    Governor Palin Helps Usher in New Face of GOP

    By Adrienne Ross

    Tuesday’s election was indeed historic, and for more than one reason. What Republicans managed to do in seizing control of the House is definitely noteworthy. Americans sent a clear message to the Obama administration that boils down to something like this: “Can you hear me now?”

    Governor Palin endorsed several Mama Grizzlies, propelling these women forward in their efforts to serve their states and their nation well. Nicole pointed to this “GOP Year of the Woman,” in her post, “27 GOP Women Elected to Congress And Governorships.” Governor Palin endorsed ten of these women.

    Not only has this election season brought women to the forefront of the Republican Party, but it has historically changed the face of the Republican Party. The Left prides itself on what they deem a lock on minorities. In fact, they think they own us. Not so. More and more are stepping forward to proclaim the common sense values that conservatives espouse, that Governor Palin espouses. This election highlighted several of these people.

    Newsy reports:

    Minority candidates rode the GOP wave Tuesday night, as Marco Rubio, Tim Scott, Susana Martinez, and Nikki Haley all produced historic victories.

    (See video below.)

    In its report, which uses CNN, The Root, Stateline, NBC, and C-SPAN as sources, Newsy touches on the role the Tea Party has played in this. That’s a far cry from the racism smear unfairly thrown at tea partiers who have simply demanded fiscal responsibility, limited government, and Constitutional freedom. Governor Palin endorsed every one of these winners, which is a fact the lamestream media won’t point out because it would clash with the racism narrative they push. The truth is the Governor helped create this historic moment in the GOP, choosing to throw her common sense support behind common sense Americans. 2010 has been the year that people we may have never heard of before offered their service out of a desire to restore–not “fundamentally transform”–the exceptional America they love.

    If the Left’s agenda is detrimental to anyone–and it most certainly is–it is doubly detrimental for minorities. Nonetheless, Democrats have been successful in coercing us, duping us, and trapping us into going along with a system that simply does not work to promote progress. It is counterproductive to our success. The message Governor Palin embodies and boldly proclaims, however, is one that empowers, protects, and provides. It is the message that must be heard, for it is particularly vital for minority communities, which is a subject I intend to focus on in the days ahead. Common sense conservatism benefits all Americans, so may it continue to spread like wildfire into areas where it has heretofore not been embraced.

    Governor Palin’s voice and the people she has endorsed are already influencing the direction of the country, as evidenced by Tuesday’s historic election. She has her Mama Grizzlies in 2010, the GOP Year of the Woman, and for that we are most grateful. In addition, she has helped usher in what may very well be the new multicultural face of the GOP, for which we are also grateful.

    Jesse Jackson, Obama, and Sharpton are all befuddled over the election of new minority conservatives… it blows their BS all to hell and back that conservatives are genetically racist Whiteys.

    If they attack newly elected minority conservatives as oreos/porch-monkeys/coconuts/traitors/blah blah blah, they risk backlash from minority voters who are deserting the left for failures of the last 4 years.

    And I will use that angle to attack the left when they try it… and promote these minorities because they are welcome fellow/sister conservatives working hand in hand with white conservatives. It de-races the dynamics which weakens the BS of the left.

    Senate Dems warn GOP not to block legislation
    By J. Taylor Rushing – 11/03/10 03:46 PM ET

    The top three Senate Democrats said the onus was on the newly strengthened GOP conference to cooperate on legislation next year.

    Republicans picked up six Senate seats Tuesday night, not enough to take control of the chamber, but the new numbers will make it harder for Democrats to get the necessary 60 votes to proceed on controversial legislation.

    Majority Leader Harry Reid (Nev.), Majority Whip Dick Durbin (Ill.) and Democratic Conference Vice Chairman Charles Schumer (N.Y.) pledged in a conference call with reporters Wednesday to work with the Republicans but also emphasized the GOP’s responsibility to not block legislation.

    Reid, especially, renewed a threat he made before, that Republicans must stop obstructing and start cooperating. The majority leader, who survived a close reelection battle, said he spoke early Wednesday afternoon with Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.).

    “Republicans must take their responsibility to solve the problems of ordinary Americans,” Reid said. “Simply saying ‘no,’ as we’ve had this past Congress … won’t bring jobs back. It won’t strengthen the economy, and it won’t help families who are struggling to make ends meet. ‘No’ is not the answer. It has to be ‘yes.’ Not our ‘yes,’ but a combined ‘yes,’ something we work out — a consensus ‘yes.’”

    “Playing to a draw in the United States Senate for political score is not acceptable to the American people,” added Durbin. “We need to work together. The Senate will be the crucible for some of the most important issues of our day.”

    Specifically, Schumer said the 112th Congress will “focus on the middle class like a laser,” and he expects, as per tradition, Republicans will insist on tax cuts and Democrats will defend spending on infrastructure. However, Schumer also acknowledged Democrats “don’t have the monopoly on knowledge.”

    Asked about the lame-duck session scheduled to start Nov. 15, Reid said “a number of issues” could be taken up and he has begun talks with McConnell on the agenda.

    Pointedly, however, Reid signaled Democrats would likely vote against a wholesale extension of the 2001 and 2003 tax cuts signed by President George W. Bush, which expire at the end of the year. Democrats would agree to extending the cuts for middle-class families, Reid said, but allowing them for wealthy Americans “is not going to happen” because it would cost $4 trillion.

    President Obama has pressed for the cuts to be extended for families making $250,000 or less, while Republicans want an across-the-board extension.

    Pressed on how Congress could function in a divided state in 2011, with a Republican-controlled House and Democratic-controlled Senate, Reid repeated that the answer lies with GOP leaders.

    “When this government was set up in the 18th century, they knew that there would be problems … This has all happened before,” he said. “The message I repeat today is that the ball is in their court.

    “Fifty-three (seats), over my long time in the Senate, is a pretty good majority … We’re comfortable where we are, and we have made the message very clear that we want to work with Republicans. If they’re unwilling to work with us, there’s not a thing we can do about that, but the American people can see that like a very slow curve ball.”

    The Senate will have some new members in the lame-duck. The winners of contests in Delaware, West Virginia and Illinois will be sworn-in immediately. Democrats held two of the seats with Chris Coons (D) winning in Delaware and Joe Manchin (D) winning in West Virginia, but Republicans took Illinois with a win by Rep. Mark Kirk.

    Here is a good one from General Sun-tzu: “Keep your friends close and your enemies closer.”

    He speaks at length about strengths and weakness which leads to battles won or lost… wars won or lost, which relate back to the concept of the above quote.

    These Socialists are arrogant to their own detriment… and appear to know nothing about some key tactics… they do know many things however and are quite dangerous. Know what they know and know what it is they do not know… that is part of “keeping your enemy closer.”

  234. tellitlikeitis says:

    I will probably sign up on twitter at some point.

  235. VotingFemale says:

    A socialist female just twittered and I responded including part of her twitter…

    “I am here and I am a Conserv. Fem grrr RT @Fem2pt0: @sthrnynkee asks, “where are all the women?” #fem2 #election #p2 #sgp #palin”

    those words with the # in front are search tags people follow to see what folks are saying with those included in tweets…

    socialist tags (called hashtags): #fem2 #election #p2
    conservative tags: #sgp #palin

    I just put a shot over the bow of a new liberal female to let her and her friends know… we conservative females are present and aggressive… the left does not own “women.” GRRR

  236. VotingFemale says:

    having a twitter account is not “owning” anything… it is purely commenting only.

    Talk to Sami about twitter… I got him started with it last week and it took some talking to get him to dip his toe in the water there. now… his eyes are open wide!

  238. VotingFemale says:

    my Twitter homepage is not what I use to twitter… far from it.

    This is what I use…


  239. tellitlikeitis says:

    Vf, That is what the left is afraid of “conservative females.” For the longest time they thought they had the female on the plantation with all the black people. That is why female conservatives are demonized along with conservative black people. The liberals can’t stand the fact that females and black people are opening their eyes and seeing and thinking for themselves and are no longer bowing at the alter of liberalism.

  240. VotingFemale says:

    it merits a blogpost from ya, Sami… and I am sure many minorities who voted for Obama would be outraged as well…

    samiam60 says


  241. VotingFemale says:

    Sami, Tellit is not sure he wants to get into Twitter… not uncommon for folks who have not been shown the ropes or realizes what it really is and really does.

  242. tellitlikeitis says:

    The Obama’s think they are royalty. They are like ghetto dwellers that won the lottery. The main difference is that they are blowing our money and not theirs.

  243. VotingFemale says:

    yeah… minorities leaving the DEM plantation scares the crap out of them.

    And I like to rattle their Leftist Feminist cages daily with twitter… gads it is a total BLAST!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  244. VotingFemale says:

    some of these people have 10s of thousands of followers on twitter… meaning all those people get copied on a tweet sent to them.

    I have taken on some real heavy hitters who use twitter in debate battles… and all their followers were able to track the debate as well as all my followers.

    until three weeks ago I had about a dozen true followers… in three weeks my follower count of meaningful folks on twitter has increased to over 400.

    I think ArleneArmy has over 3000 followers.

  245. VotingFemale says:

    I wasn’t using tweeter because I did not think of it the way it really is and the standard interface to it was like… duhhhh

    When I installed Tweetdeck and started using it… a whole new vast world opened up. YIKES!!!! That was three weeks ago.

    you can post links youtube vids and pictures to both friends and enemies… and build a network of folks who think like us.

  246. VotingFemale says:

    here is a tweet that just came across from one of my friends on twitter… we follow each other…

    “Nov 2 was the #TeaParty’s D-Day. The war will be long and brutal, but we must prevail against elitist tyranny. We must.”

  247. VotingFemale says:

    here is a tweet from an enemy that just came over… I have tweetdeck set to show me everything with the hashtag #p so I can see what the enemy is saying and what conservatives are saying back to them…

    “Guantánamo, Exception or Rule? All-American Justice for a Child Soldier at Obama’s Gitmo http://bit.ly/9QYheT #Truthout #p2 #p2b”

  248. VotingFemale says:

    here is another enemy tweet from #p2

    “Conservative Golf Ball Washer #JobsCreatedByBoehner #p21 #p2”

  249. VotingFemale says:

    just for example purposes: here is a twitter “private msg” to me from Sami this morning…

    “Returning home… Good Morning Sweet Patriot Lady !”

  250. arlenearmy says:

    Afternoon everybody.

    I just heard something on news about the lefties urging Obama to ignore & by pass the GOP & for him to find a way to push the left’s monstrosity.

  251. VotingFemale says:

    it is a full blown political war out there…

    another enemy tweet from #p2

    No. Fucking. Shit. RT @owillis: Obama India Trip Cost Just Made Up By Conservatives http://bit.ly/dzTbQX #P2 #TCOT

  252. VotingFemale says:

    that idiot wants to deny the $200 million a day cost of the Obama boondoggle as something made up by conservatives to hurt Obama.

    scumbagger that he is…

  253. VotingFemale says:

    RT means “Retweet” which means anything following RT was tweeted by @owillis and to the left was the moron who added the vulgarity in the beginning.

    here is another enemy tweet on #p2

    Congratulations Republican & TeaBagging Veterans: http://bit.ly/dzU0Cw #p2 #phnm #imgb #teaparty #ampat #military #tcot #tlot #sgp #ocra

  257. VotingFemale says:

    I will send a tweet addressed to her which all her followers and all my followers will see and none of the enemy can see unless they follow either of us. I screen who I allow to follow me and block the enemy from following me on a case by case basis.


  258. VotingFemale says:

    Here is another Moron that just doesn’t get it’

    Reid: Both parties need to compromise in Senate

    – Wed Nov 3, 11:28 am ET

    WASHINGTON – Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid says lawmakers of both parties need to start working together now that Republicans have reduced the Democrats’ dominance in the chamber.

    Reid said on NBC’s “Today” show that he planned to speak Wednesday with Minority Leader Mitch McConnell on ways to “build a consensus and move this country along.”

    Senate Democrats lost at least six seats on Election Day, but narrowly held their majority. Reid himself survived an aggressive challenge from tea party favorite Sharron Angle to win re-election.

    The Nevada Democrat said he has a “good relationship” with McConnell, but he asked the Republicans to be more open to compromise, telling ABC’s “Good Morning America” that “just saying no doesn’t do the trick.”

    Just getting back from my second Sortie of the day. This mission had to be flown. I am outraged beyond belief.

    India Removes Falling Coconut Threat So Obama Doesn’t Have a Repeat of Tuesday

  268. arlenearmy says:

    I gotta move some firewood closer to front

  269. VotingFemale says:

    Obama must be worried about road side coconut bombs… all coconuts are being removed from coconut trees Obama might encounter.

    What will they do with the coconuts? who the hell knows…

    I am going to maul the left over this india trip as Sami just did.

    Barney Frank prefers the upcoming ‘lame duck’ session to facing a Republican-controlled House of Representatives. During his acceptance speech last night, Barney the Hut bad mouthed Republicans, the Tea Party and the looming GOP Majority in the House.

    Barney? you are fired from your chairmanship, scumbagger. Just sayin’
