Tea Party patriot James Webb loves Obamacare

LOL:  Who would have thought a Tea Party patriot James Webb would be willing to vote for Hillary Clinton out of fear of losing his Obamacare benefits if a Republican should win the presidential election. And he’s serious.

Webb, a video blogger, took to YouTube to tell his followers why he will be voting for Hillary Clinton next November. He said Obamacare changed his life for better.

James Webb posts as Hot Lead retired on YouTube. He confessed to his hundreds of followers that he was emotionally conflicted which party to support in the elections and is seriously thinking about voting Democratic (H/T Addicting Info):

“And I’m serious because I asked myself, ‘Which party has helped me out the most in the last, I don’t know, 15 years, 20?’ And it was the Democrat Party.”

[..]

“With Obamacare, I got to retire at age 50 because if it wasn’t for Obamacare, I would have had to work until I was 65 and get on Medicare because health insurance is expensive when you’ve got medical problems.”

[..]

“But you know, the Republican Party, they haven’t done nothing for me, man. Nothing. So, I’m leaning toward voting for Hillary unless something major comes up. I don’t trust the Republicans anymore because they’re wanting to repeal the Obamacare. And I don’t want them to do that, man, because then I’ll have to go to work again. My life’s already planned out.”

[..]

“Things have changed. So unless the Republicans change with it, I’m probably going to have to swing my vote over toward Hillary.”

So, let me get this straight….James Webb hates everything about President Obama but loves what Obamacare affords him? These right wingnuts are a trip!

Watch James Webb give Hillary Clinton props over Obamacare:

No Marco Rubio, “Yesterday” Was Actually Good Under Bill Clinton’s Watch

Marco Rubio launches presidential campaign

Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) may be a sleeper candidate for the Republicans, but that doesn’t mean he’s going to win the presidential election should be become the party’s nominee. You see, Rubio is a fast talker, who doesn’t seem to care much about immigration reform. He seems to play up his Cuban connection when it’s convenient, but not in the context of putting protections in place to keep immigrant families together.

He tried to ding Hillary Clinton by saying, “Just yesterday, a leader from yesterday began a campaign for president by promising to take us back to yesterday. Yesterday is over and we’re never going back.” Um, if memory serves me correctly “yesterday” during her husband’s presidency was pretty good for the middle class. More people on Main Street invested in the stock market and life was good. But, the yesterday that became a nightmare happened under a Republican administration.

The fact is, when the debate gets around to income equality for women, gay rights and other social issues, Marco Rubio is just as terrible as the other Republican presidential wannabes. He will be out of his league in a debate with Hillary Clinton about women’s issues, minimum wage, help for working families, immigration and so on. I am hard-pressed to believe that Marco Rubio gives one iota about the black community. I can’t recall seeing his name mentioned in any black news stories, in terms of community outreach or commemorating an important event such as Selma 50, for example.

Don’t get me wrong, Hillary Clinton is no paragon of virtue, but I would venture to say that the yesterday under Bill Clinton is worth going back to. Yeah, yeah, Bill had personal drama, but that life for Main Street was mainly good.

When the debate gets down to women’s economic equality, our basic human rights to personal freedom, Marco Rubio is as bad as all the other Republicans in the field.

It seems to me that Jeb Bush has boxed out Rubio and he may be in the worst position at this juncture. Bush has a great deal of support from the “mainstream conservative and moderate donors” in the party. This wouldn’t normally have been a big deal but Rubio isn’t a favorite of those insiders who as “skeptical of Mr. Bush’s candidacy,” Nate Cohn writes.

“His central problem is that Jeb Bush has found considerable support from the party’s mainstream conservative and moderate donors in the so-called invisible primary — the behind-the-scenes competition for elite support that often decides the nomination… Mr. Bush’s pre-emptive bid to build elite support has denied Mr. Rubio the opportunity to consolidate the center-right wing of the party. Perhaps this wouldn’t be a big problem if Mr. Rubio were a favorite of the conservatives skeptical of Mr. Bush’s candidacy, but the field is full of candidates who are equally good or better fits for many conservative voters.”

Twitter mocked Marco Rubio’s presidential campaign announcement:

Marco Rubio is an anti-equality extremist:

The right wing freak-out has begun following Hillary Clinton presidential campaign launch. Clinton’s announcement video talked listening to the voters and real people across the country showing their concerns. Um, the right wing, on the other hand, could care less about about the people. They are focused on Hillary Clinton.

Here are some tweets about Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign announcement:

Former Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley weighed in on the shooting death of Walter Scott by North Charleston police officer Michael Slager, tweeting “One unjustified police shooting – like that of Walter Scott – is one too many.”

O’Malley, who is seen as a viable challenger to Hillary Clinton for the Democratic presidential nomination, attended the National Action Network convention in New York City.

Walter Scott, who was unarmed, was shot five times in the back as he fled following a traffic stop for a broken taillight.

Ben Carson slams Hip-Hop

GOP presidential wannabe Dr. Ben Carson says the Hip Hop community is destroying the “values and principles that got us through slavery” and “Jim Crow.” Um, that’s sure to rub many in the black community the wrong way.

Carson made the comments about hip hop destroying black communities during an interview on WBLS in New York City.

“We need to reestablish faith in our communities and the values and principles that got us through slavery, that got us through Jim Crow, and segregation, and all kinds of horrible things that were heaped upon us,” he said. “Why were we able to get through those? Because of our faith, because of our family, because of our values, and as we allow the hip-hop community to destroy those things for us, and as we grasp onto what’s politically correct and not what is correct, we continue to deteriorate.” Source: Business Insider

Ben Carson can say whatever he wants, there is no way he will get the GOP presidential nomination, much less win the presidential elections.

So, Now GOP Presidential Hopeful Jeb Bush is a Hispanic

So, Now GOP Presidential Hopeful Jeb Bush is a Hispanic

GOP presidential hopeful former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush registered as a Hispanic on his 2009 voter-registration application.

I remember when vice president George Bush introduced us to Jeb Bush and the “little brown ones:”

August 17, 1988|Associated Press

NEW ORLEANS — A bristling Vice President George Bush today defended his description of his three Mexican-American grandchildren as “the little brown ones,” saying, “This heart knows nothing but pride and love” for the children.

“For anyone to suggest that that comment of pride is anything other than what it was, I find it personally offensive,” Bush said at a news conference with his running mate, Sen. Dan Quayle of Indiana.

Bush on Tuesday introduced his grandchildren to President Reagan at a brief airport meeting.

“These are Jebby’s kids from Florida, the little brown ones,” the vice president said. The three youngsters are the children of Bush’s son, Jeb, and his Mexican-born wife, Columba.

“Those grandchildren are my pride and joy, and when I say pride, I mean it,” Bush said today.

“I don’t want to see these kids hurt and they weren’t hurt by what I said, and if they’re hurt by misinterpretation, that isn’t fair and I don’t like it,” he said.

So, fast forward to 2009, Jeb Bush is trying to pass himself off as a Hispanic. When  contacted by the New York Times, Jeb Bush’s campaign “could offer no explanation for the characterization” he made on his 2009 voter registration form.

Um, Donald Trump and Orly Taitz should have a field day with this….

Jeb Bush’s response to being a “Hispanic:”

Hillary Clinton primary challenge

New Hampshire Democrats see Sen. Elizabeth Warren as a credible threat to Hillary Clinton in the primaries. The New Hampshire Union Leader reports, “The Democratic Party will have a primary race whether presumptive front-runner Hillary Clinton ultimately decides to enter the race or not, political observers and state Democrats said.”

Democratic Party chairman Ray Buckley: “I fully anticipate we’re going to have a very robust primary. It’s going to happen. A challenger to Clinton will emerge. There will be an alternative, and I anticipate a very vibrant primary.”

Josh Green: Sen. Elizabeth Warren would be credible threat to Clinton in the primaries.

Canadian-Born Ted Cruz to Launch 2016 Presidential Campaign

Canadian-Born Ted Cruz to Launch 2016 Presidential Campaign

Canadian-born U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) will be the first Republican to launch a 2016 presidential bid when he makes the announcement on Monday at Liberty University in Lynchburg, Va. Yep, right out of the gates, he’s aligning himelf with religious fanatics.

The first-term senator from Texas will announce that he’s running for the Republican presidential nomination, according to the Houston Chronicle. He will make his official declaration Monday in Lynchburg, Virginia at Liberty University, the largest Christian university in the world.

Cruz, 44, will be the first candidate to formally throw his hat in the ring for what’s expected to be a crowded GOP primary, with more than a dozen high-profile Republicans expressing serious interest in a White House run.

The Chronicle reports that Cruz will go straight to announcing his candidacy without first forming an exploratory committee, according to advisers with direct knowledge of his plans.

Cruz, armed with his trademark ostrich boots and impressive oratory skills, has quickly made a name for himself in the past two years since he started in the Senate, solidifying his brand as a conservative firebrand willing to take on establishment Republicans in Washington. Source: CNN

I wonder how the birthers will accept a presidential campaign from Ted Cruz? You will recall, they went after Obama claiming he wasn’t natural born because his father was from Kenya. Then, some suggested, and still believe (including Donald Trump), that he was actually born in Kenya. So, how will they view the presidency of someone who was born in Canada to a Cuban father? The fact is, I believe much of the birtherism rhetoric was racially-motivated.

Ted Cruz won’t be the next GOP presidential nominee. He has veered too far right and the majority of Republicans aren’t that fanatical. You will also recall he engineered a 17-day government shutdown that has left a bitter taste in the mouths of many. According to a recent hypothetical CNN/ORC International, he has 4% support among members of his party. Though it’s early in the game, there is no way Ted Cruz will garner enough support when he has insulted just about every demographic he would need to attract — blacks, gays, Hispanic, women, young voters, etc.

Poll: Hillary Clinton Leads Potential GOP Presidential Candidates by Double Digits

Hillary Clinton leads potential Republican presidential candidates by double digits in a recent CNN/ORC poll. This comes as the former secretary of state has been dogged by a private email scandal. She also maintains a huge lead among possible Democratic candidates. Um, so, the email scandal isn’t really dinging her as much as the GOP hopes.

Rand Paul comes closest, with 43% saying they’d be more likely to back him while 54% choose Clinton. The two candidates who currently top the GOP field, Bush and Walker, match up equally against Clinton, with each carrying 40% to her 55%. Huckabee gets 41% to Clinton’s 55% and Carson has 40% to Clinton’s 56%.

In the race for the Democratic presidential nomination, Clinton holds a nearly 50-point lead over Vice President Joe Biden, her closest competitor in the field, 62% to 15%. Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren rounds out the top three on the Democratic side with 10%. No other potential candidate tops 5%.

Should Warren decide not to get into the race, Clinton stands to benefit more than others, gaining 5 points and holding a 67% to 16% advantage over Biden when Warren’s backers are re-allocated to their second-choice candidate. Notably, with Warren out of the race, Clinton surges from 67% support to 74% among Democratic women. Source: CNN

Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL), who is expected to throw his hat in the ring for the 2016 presidential election, seems to have a little problem on his hands, that may rear its head in the near future.

Politico is focusing on a house he jointly owns with scandal-plagued ex-Rep. David Rivera (R-FL). Can you say, if you live in a glass house don’t throw stones?

“In many ways, it has been a house of horrors for Rubio, a financial and political liability heading into the 2016 election. While he and Rivera were state legislators, they paid way too much for it in 2005, only to see it go embarrassingly into foreclosure for a spell during Rubio’s 2010 Senate race… Now, the three-bedroom property stands as a stubborn symbol of both a politically problematic friendship and lingering questions about Rubio’s personal finances, which dogged him on the campaign trail in 2010 and may do so again.”

Imagine if Barack Obama had a house that went into foreclosure? Better yet, imagine if he had a questionable friendship with someone like David Rivera? Um, wait, he did and he had to disavow Rev. Jeremiah Wright.
