FIAF

Obama’s second term agenda. Be afraid. Be very afraid.

President Obama has a reputation for talking, but not necessarily for saying much. He has achieved new levels of vagueness this election season. Beyond repeating that he’s in favor of making the “rich” pay for more government “investment,” he hasn’t offered a single new idea for a second term. This is deliberate.

He’s going to raise taxes on “the rich” – which if he does will do nothing to solve our problems. Beyond that, he’s made no attempts to reform Medicare or Social Security. Which means when he says – which he constantly does – that we need to “invest” in education and green energy and job training – well, our debt and our taxes will go up.

All this is why Obama is mostly running against Romney, and not on his record, or agenda.

Good new for Harry Reid. WHile he’s waiting for Romeny’s tax returns, he can peruse the tax returns of members of his own party who have [cue scary music] Off Shore Accounts. Besty Woodruff in NRO. He can start with Dianne Feinstein, who has a net worth somewhere between $44 million and $94 million.

Her most recent reports say she has an unspecified amount (at least $1 million) “held independently by the spouse or independent child” in Coral Growth Investments, Ltd., in St. Peter Port, Guernsey. Guernsey, a tax haven, is a small island in the English Channel that early this year drew the ire of a British Labour-party leader for helping wealthy Brits dodge taxes. The California senator also has between $500,000 and $1 million in a fund called Cevian Capital II L.L.C. in Jersey, another of the Channel Islands. According to her latest forms, that holding generated between $15,000 and $50,000 in capital gains, interest, and dividends. Feinstein has another $1,000 to $15,000 in Mauritius, an island nation in the Indian Ocean off Madagascar that is an up-and-coming tax haven.

She’s not alone. Read it all.

Anderson Cooper performs a Random Act of Journalism.

I really think that woman ^^^ is a complete idiot. She is confronted with her lies, ignores responding, and continues to say the exact same thing over and over again.

My husband forwarded me an email from Sandra Fluke.

In a recent statement that was both factually inaccurate and horribly offensive, Republican Missouri Senate candidate Rep. Todd Akin said that victims of “legitimate rape” don’t get pregnant because “the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down.”

Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan tried to distance themselves from the remark — but the fact is they’re in lockstep with Akin on the major women’s health issues of our time. Just this morning, the Republican Party voted to include the “Human Life Amendment” in their platform, calling for a constitutional ban on abortions nationwide, even for rape victims. Several Romney supporters and advisers stood silently by while this vote took place, and the Los Angeles Times reports that the platform “was written at the direction of Romney’s campaign.”

@@@. We’re going to be hearing about this until November.

****

President Obama spoke out in response to Akin’s comments: “What I think these comments do underscore is why we shouldn’t have a bunch of politicians, a majority of whom are men, making health care decisions on behalf of women.”

This controversy is not an accident, or a mistake, or an isolated incident. It’s a reflection of a Republican Party whose policies are dangerous for women.

    I happened to be in the car on Friday evening, listening to Hugh Hewitt’s show. He reported that DWS was chosen for the DNC spot because she is Jewish,female, and from Florida. Obama is a box checker, who doesn’t think about ability, just what demographic the person comes from.

    Is doucheface a demographic? Because if so he can stop looking and check the box next time he sees himself in the mirror.

    That makes about as much sense as anything. She’s an idiot and a horrible spokesperson for the DNC. So, bravo. Continue on.
