GOP's "Last Gasp?"!

December 23, 2012

It's worth considering. The King bets the still disaffected Romney voters and conservatives, generally, will rally in support of GOPers now denying the President his first legislative victory. A stinging defeat of the President would cause his own supporters to doubt him; they might even wonder why they voted for someone who could not deliver what he promised. Perhaps this is what the conservatives in Congress mean to see.

On the other hand, if Obama can successfully rally liberal voters in opposition to GOP House members, he might start a process that sees ruling GOP Congressmen systematically targeted for defeat. The problem, of course, remains the fact there aren't enough voters in the Obama camp to dislodge his Congressional tormentors, apparently.

Who will the voters blame for going over the fiscal cliff? Who will they blame if the U.S. defaults on foreign obligations because Republicans refuse to raise the "debt limit?" How much power -- legitimate and illegitimate -- is Obama and his supporters willing to show, and use, to FORCE their liberal agenda (even over the objections of elected Congressmen) on all Americans?

    Blog: Can we please fix the Oscars?

    Summary:  Fun facts: The first-ever Oscar ceremony, held in 1929, ran a brisk 15 minutes. By contrast, the longest was in 2002, clocking in at a monstrous 4 hours and change. As usual, there are things I loved about it and things I didn't. Rather than be snarky or complain, I'll offer a few suggestions on how the organizers might bring the show into the 21st century.

    Winter storm drama

    Athens-Clarke County police officers responded to Pinewood Estates North on a 911 call concerning a heated domestic dispute. it reportedly was an argument over the lack of heat and food in a family's trailer and a woman was threatening to stab anyone who tried to take away her 7-month-old child. State patrol responded also, from their post nearby on U.S. Highway 29 North. The situation apparently was resolved. An officer reported he was driving the woman and infant to another home in Athens. read more
