Re: The Obama Years- A GOP love story

The GOP is doing its best to destroy the state of NC.

Quote:
In January, after the election of Pat McCrory as governor, Republicans took control of both the executive and legislative branches for the first time since Reconstruction. Since then, state government has become a demolition derby, tearing down years of progress in public education, tax policy, racial equality in the courtroom and access to the ballot.

The cruelest decision by lawmakers went into effect last week: ending federal unemployment benefits for 70,000 residents. Another 100,000 will lose their checks in a few months. Those still receiving benefits will find that they have been cut by a third, to a maximum of $350 weekly from $535, and the length of time they can receive benefits has been slashed from 26 weeks to as few as 12 weeks.

The state has the fifth-highest unemployment rate in the country, and many Republicans insulted workers by blaming their joblessness on generous benefits. In fact, though, North Carolina is the only state that has lost long-term federal benefits, because it did not want to pay back $2.5 billion it owed to Washington for the program. The State Chamber of Commerce argued that cutting weekly benefits would be better than forcing businesses to pay more in taxes to pay off the debt, and lawmakers blindly went along, dropping out of the federal program.

Moderate Republicans are marooned in their own party, poll suggests


GOP is ****ed. It's sad because they could be so much more, but they continue to want to pander to the religious nutjobs.

Sorry but Pres. Obama's statement about Iran sounded to me like Neville Chamberlain's peace in our time statement.

No need to apologize. Clearly they need to have an alternative to oil as who knows how long their 150 billion barrels will last./sarc

Let Israel do the work, just make sure to back Israel up when it's done.

Didn't watch the address because nothing he has to say at this point means much of anything, and most likely it's a huge lie anyways.

Wasn't McCain's appeal to democrats and some independents that McCain is a "maverick" that's more liberal than most Republicans? Shocking that some Republicans would consider him too liberal. Shocking!

What in the hell would they be saying about Reagan right now if they think McCain is too liberal.

After Threat, NY Rep. Faces Temperament Questions - ABC News


What the fuck is wrong with these assholes? Any governmental official that does something like this should be kicked out of office. No questions. This is what our government has come down to. Strong arming the press and people to fight for their dominance. LONG LIVE OUR CORPORATE MASTERS!

They cater to their constituents so it really isn't surprising. Kind of like when they dragged Clint Eastwood up at the GOP convention.
