Long-time readers of my blog and friends of Team Actor212 know I’m in the tank for Apple products. By my count, I’ve either purchased for myself or as gifts about two dozen Apple products over the years. Without getting into a Windows v. Mac debate here, I find Apple’s technology and ease of use, combined [...]
Here’s the thing: the best strategy for Republicans is to just let it go:
WASHINGTON — The scandals dogging President Barack Obama are a political gift to Republicans, who could use some good luck after recent election losses. It’s not clear, however, how Republicans can best capitalize on Democrats’ woes, legislatively or politically.
Last November’s [...]
I realize conservatives have to strike while the iron is hot, but this is pure stupidity:
And they’re off: With no defined field of candidates and the last election just six months in the rearview mirror, American Crossroads on Sunday aired the first attack ad of the 2016 presidential campaign, panning Hillary Clinton for her [...]
But then, this was Mark Sanford, who needed to be called on it:
As the NRCC’s move suggests, Sanford’s recent history is the main reason the race is so competitive. In 2009, he admitted to traveling to Argentina for an affair with his mistress without informing the public he was out of the state. The [...]
Witnesses to them that died,
The blood avengers at his side,
The Furies’ troop forever stands.
Aeschylus was more right than he knew.
I’ll leave it to Gabby Giffords to explain what this post is about:
SENATORS say they fear the N.R.A. and the gun lobby. But I think that [...]

President Obama, I mean:
WASHINGTON – In his fifth annual budget proposal to Congress on Wednesday, President Obama once again has put forward a fiscal mix of investments in infrastructure, education and research with further deficit reduction through tax increases and spending cuts. But for the first time he has included changes to Medicare and [...]
…I wish I was an ignorant Republican, Inc-er.
I did my taxes last night. It was not pretty.
I had an instructor for Tax Accounting when I was Actorino212, and he once said something really profound.
Which is to say it would mean nothing to a Teabagger.
He said, “Never regret having a large tax [...]
…a Grand Army of the Republicans, Inc.?
ALBUQUERQUE, New Mexico — Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus says his party needs to increase its numbers without changing its political platform in order to beat Democrats.
The Albuquerque Journal reports (http://bit.ly/Yx0a1L) that Priebus made the remarks during a speech Saturday in Albuquerque.
His remarks came [...]
When two elephants battle, it is the grass that suffers. Welcome to my blog, fellow blade! The Dueling Budgets battle has begun, and Republicans, Inc. are playing the banjo:
WASHINGTON (AP) — House Republicans are sending mixed signals in agreeing to meet with President Barack Obama for talks over the budget impasse, while Obama is [...]
Los Angeles Times, By Michael A. Memoli, March 7
Washington – Michigan Democrat Carl Levin announced Thursday that he would not run for reelection in 2014, adding to an exodus of experience in the chamber.
Levin, chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee, is the sixth sitting senator to decide not to run again. [...]
What if they gave a budget and nobody came?:
As sequestration begins, Republicans have been overtaken with something close to giddiness, and Democrats seized with gloom. It appeared as recently as a few months ago that the threat of across-the-board cuts, disproportionately hurting defense, would force Republicans to negotiate a long-term debt reduction agreement. But [...]
Run, do not walk, to the local newsstand and pick up a copy of this week’s Time Magazine for the lengthy investigative reporting done by Steven Brill on the price-gouging and profiteering of the American medical system. From doctors to hospitals to insurance companies (which actually almost come off as heroes in this tale), Brill [...]
The Obama administration and Democrats is sitting awfully pretty this week. This is the week that Republicans will explode, no matter what happens. Pass the popcorn:
The danger for Republicans is that the budget cuts will severely weaken public support for the austerity theme that the party has been promoting since 2010. The cuts will [...]
I have a modest proposal for President Obama in which he can screw around with Republican opposition to the confirmation of Chuck Hagel as Defense Secretary. I’ll get to that in a minute. Let’s take a look at what’s going on:
On Wednesday Senate Republicans forced the Senate to a 60-vote threshold on the confirmation [...]
