It is confirmed that the Republican’s plan for President Obama is to obstruct and after five years of unprecedented obstructionism, the Democrats finally strike back with the ‘Nuclear Option’ in the Senate. Finally is correct and finally is the operative word from the Democrats’ stand point!
Perhaps it is the Democrats reluctance to act, one person in particular Harry Reid who is partly to blame for allowing this obstructionism to fester this long, nevertheless it long past the time to get some work done. We have seen the Republican reaction to Harry Reid’s reluctant and long-delayed decision to invoke the so-called nuclear option; changing the Senate’s filibuster rules so that Obama’s judicial nominees can get the simple up-or-down votes they deserve. There has been 168 filibusters against all Presidential nominees with nearly half (82) were held against President Obama’s – picks. This again confirms unprecedented obstructionism by the right wing.
The Senate can now appoint, confirm 93 progressive judges into the 93 open seats in the lower court systems and more forward barring no more Obstructions.
We all know that the GOP obstructionism is ‘absolutely ridiculous’ with it starting from day one of the President’s (Inauguration), with his first steps onto the highest office of our nation. We all know where this ideology start from and who was involved in this obstruction plan – the secret meeting to take down Obama – exposed. See the videos below!
Now, we look forward in watching the freak outs from the Right wing when the President nominates and fills the seats available in the lower courts! In agreement with Mainstream Media, that it has been fun and frustrating to watch the freak outs thus far from the RWNJ’s from temper tantrum to name-calling –again ridiculous. Rand Paul did what Rand Paul does best and threw a tantrum. Sean Hannity once supported filibuster reform. Now he is calling it “One of the most lawless power grabs” in U.S. history. The rules allow for it, but it is a power grab? Rush Limbaugh melted down, calling the democratic process “dictatorship,” and of course, Fox News went straight for the false equivalency cupboard. However, it is more than ridiculous! The right-wing should try to get over their Obama obsession like the Left-wing got over Bush’s failed policies, the Iraq War and the possible 911 involvement not yet confirmed. The American people want to see more cooperation from both sides and if you cannot work together than move aside and stop the obstructive behavior.
The Republican Congressional leaders are not doing their jobs and preventing the Democrats from doing what is necessary to move this country forward. If they call obstructionism serving their constituents and their constituents then they are liars. They are serving no one, and that includes them. We foresee a backlash to this “Mickey Mouse type BS” mentality that they are exhibiting in the upcoming elections. We hope that the backlash will be that the GOP goes down in all branches of government in the up-and-coming elections of 2014, 2016 etc. We cannot afford high drop-off in people not voting in these elections or we will be in a worse situation – plain and simple. So, it is up to us to stay informed, energized and vote these RWNJ’s out of office – stay frosty my friends [sic]!
The Last Word – Secret meeting to take down Obama exposed

Former President Bill Clinton weighed in on an increasingly likely government shutdown in an interview with ABC's 'This Week'. Clinton criticized Republican demands, as well as their obsession with Obamacare."I've never seen a time-- can you remember a time in your lifetime when a major political party was just sitting around, begging for America to fail?"The House voted early Sunday to make major cuts and delays to the Affordable Care Act in exchange for continuing to fund the government. The bill marks the 43rd time that House Republicans have voted to defund or repeal Obamacare. The White House and Senate Democrats have already said that this kind of a demand is a non-starter.

Barack Obama…the man, his looks, his moods, and our President
View the complexity of our President Barack Obama! Look what he has endured over the five years in dealing with the GOP, the “Party of No”, the “Do Nothing Congress” and the “Obstructionist Party” -2008 – 2012! In addition, all the outside influences, hardships that his administration and this country has/are going through to make a better life for all and not just in the USA! Just think where we could be by now if President Obama and his administration had a working congress; working in the spirit of community and bi-partisanship! Working in the spirit for the People and What we stand for! Wow! That’s a hell of a thought…isn’t it!
After living in an alternate state of reality where they started believing the lies and misinformation they told, the Right is facing this horrible fact… So what ‘horrible truth’ is it that better informed people on the Right seem to finally be facing up to? They are panicking as they noticed that Health care reform, President Obama’s signature policy achievement, is probably going to work. ~ Paul Krugman
I agree with you Paul, however what the Right-wing stand for goes deeper some Fifty years to the start of the Birchers Movement of ‘Taking the Country Back’! The people should know why the push to ‘Repeal and Replace’ Obamacare. It’s mainly repeal Obamacare because they have nothing to replace it with! They don’t care to replace the ACA! Health Care for the people is a NO, NO because if goes against their principles. “Stop[ping] socialized medicine”, as they see it is their number one protest – healthcare reform and this stems way back to the McCarthy era of anti-Communist, anti-government [John Birch Society], organization dedicated to “taking back the country.”
In addition, you stated that it’s President Obama’s signature policy achievement, this, my friend is another NO, NO from the right. First, this group of Libertarians, Birchers, and Tea Party hate the fact that a ‘Black Man’ is running this country. So you see the push to “brand the President as un-American, dangerous and incompetent .” This also comes from the Birchers Movement of ‘Taking the Country Back! ’
[They call] this libertarian utopia [that] would free businesses and individuals to produce, unrestrained by regulation. Corporate taxes and taxes on the rich would be tiny, allowing vast accumulations of wealth for the wealthy. Workers incomes would be set by corporations [the right to work] without the requirements of minimum wages and union scale. ~CC And there wouldn’t be Health Care Reform!
Wake-up people and see the big picture, the grand scheme coming from the radical Right-wing – “they got [sic] to go!”
Note: If Obamacare works the way we see it, the #Republicans are through [sic] as a party! Do you agree?
Enough Already GOP!

I like the fact that, when I wake-up in the morning and the sky is Blue; it’s then that I know that everything is alright in my world! In thinking along those same lines, how would you feel if you wake up to a Red sky? What would be your first thought, that there is some severely wrong with this picture, that possible your world is coming to an end, that everything is not right with your world; with your country and your life as you know it! Well, my friends the picture is clear and I love it when the sky is blue and a Democrat is in control my world! Same concept, think about it! Gbismarc!

We’re an umbrella group looking to merge all Democratic voting groups where we can organize into a stronger, more collective body; voicing our concerns, formulating opinions, oppositions and developing plans for an informed transformation that matters and continuing this process throughout this midterm election in 2014 and beyond!
I don’t know how many of your friends are Liberals, Progressives, Independent, Moderate and/or “I Just Don’t Care” about Politics. Your political view points are your own!

We have turned out to vote in record numbers in 2012; making these events last four more years for the Special K’s !
