On Slightly Different Outcome Earth: Obama has shown how much he doesn't just disrespect, but hates American soldiers by ignoring the opportunity to bring the only POW in Afghanistan home by authorizing a prisoner transfer of some low-level Taliban thugs. He is actively trying to get servicemen killed.

Well duh.  It's easy to exceed constitutional authority when you don't have any to begin with.  Being a half breed muslin kenyan usurper and all.

Nope. Climate change is the elaborate cover that enables environmentalist extremists to get away with having issued apocalyptic warnings decades ago about "global cooling" and then shamelessly and seamlessly shifting their hysteria to anticipated "global warming" and now remorselessly settling today for just plain old "climate change."

The author, with this paragraph, demonstrates himself either to be fundamentally ignorant of scientific research, and thus not a credible source of information regarding the subject, or a willful liar, and thus not a credible source of information regarding any subject:

I'm not clicking on anything from that website, because I always regret it when I do.

At this point, Obama could actually destroy America, and the Left wouldn't believe it because the Right has cried wolf so many times they don't bother to listen anymore.

It was a ClownHall article.  OF COURSE nothing written in it is credible.  I mean, I appreciate the effort you went to to disprove the inaccurate assertions, but it's kind of moot.  Other than WND, and Bill Kristol, I've never known any entity to be as consistently wrong as TownHall.  They've never even been right by accident.

draconian environmental regulations

I understand it is technically an acceptable usage of the word, but using "draconian" to describe environmental regulations still seem pants-on-head retarded.

Hillary will win in 2016 and be a two term President. So the only real question is: Who will win in 2024?

Do you hear that, candidates and media outlets? Only 3,809 campaign days left! Get to it!

I couldn't get through that article.

My issues with climate change is essentially the same as how all politicians deal with scientific issues. There are facts, and there are politics and these are separate things.

But the writer lost me here:
>>This is all part of his pre-announced plan to bankrupt conventional energy producers.

Good? We have massively subsidized energy producers for waaaay too long. If they are going to take taxpayer handouts, they need to not shiat all over the land those taxpayers have to live in (not that I want them to shiat on land anywhere, but this makes it worse).

Normally I'd give it a click and laugh at the stupid, but..its just gotten so depressing.

There are people in this country who are obviously living in another reality, and there are people who cling to every word they say like its gospel truth. I find it sad and, to be honest, a little bit scary.

Well, they didn't understand that repealing Obamacare was never going to happen. Even if Romney got elected, it wouldn't have happened. That ship sailed the moment the bill passed.

I called out my tea bagging uncle for that on FB a while back during empty-suit week. He was amused that anyone could ever imagine someone as spineless and lazy as Obama being tyrannical.

Apparently he couldn't imagine something like four days in the future when he went all "coming-after-our-guns-FEMA-camps-for- Patriots-crying-bald-eagle" on his status.

The pretzel logic that occurs whenever it's pointed out is intellectually fascinating and socially frightening.

I'm not so sure. Their base expects a full repeal at the first opportunity; the GOP may have painted themselves into a corner, in that the political fallout (for a number of individual Congressmen) from not attempting a repeal would be greater than successfully completing it.

My friend told me the other day that Obama is actually a black guy.

I am shocked and hereby withdraw my 7 years of enthusiastic support.

My other friend just told me that Obama is bypassing Congress and actually getting some shiat done.

I take it back. Obama 2016.

The only way that these people's behavior makes any sense to me is that there is some toxin or experimental drug in our water supply.  Because the idea that people could naturally be this uselessly stupid is one I'm not comfortable with.

Right. But I'm fairly certain that behind-the-scenes many establishment Republicans privately worked towards Obamacare. It is, after all, a plan that Republicans proposed as a bill in 1992 (which ultimately failed). Many of those Republicans who authored it are considered party leaders. I think they want Obamacare, and the repeal-it movement was just lip service politics.

When O'Reilly interviewed Obama and they had questions from the viewers, one of the questions was "if you love America so much why do you want to fundamentally change it?"

How exactly is Obama "fundamentally changing" America?  No, seriously, HOW?!?!?!  Sure, he's broken the last great color barrier by being the first black POTUS, but unless he deliberately set out to be black, that's purely incidental.

Other than his ethnicity, Obama is not much different from a lot of other POTUS, so conservatives should just farking own up to it; their problem is that they're afraid that white, Christian male hegemony is coming to an end.  Other than ethnicity, Obama is not much different from a lot of other POTUS, and for fark's sake, his agenda is not radical at all.

It's just a gross, ridiculous over reaction to the fact that demographic and cultural changes are not in their favor.  Conservatives absolutely despise American multiculturalism, and Obama is a big, fat reminder that they're becoming increasingly irrelevant.  They make gains here and there; they'll probably take the Senate, but in ten years' time when their solid voter block starts thinning out and abortion, gay marriage, legalized weed and a lot of other wedge issues don't swing their way, they'll be left in the lurk.

Sure; all else being equal, it is a very pro-business approach that utilizes the private insurance market as much as possible. I wouldn't be at all surprised if many Republicans were secretly in favor of it.

However, while repeal-movement lip service may have been precisely that to them, the people who voted for them will expect action, and if there's one thing the GOP has learned over the past few years, it's that their base will not hesitate to primary anyone they think isn't living up to their promises. A Republican Congressman interested in keeping his seat will, in all likelihood, vote to repeal the ACA.

Re: Democratic filibusters in the Senate: I can think of at least two ways the GOP can overcome one, even with the slimmest of majorities.
