    Sarah Palin's odd, rambling speech last weekend before an audience of committed conservative activists in Des Moines has many influential voices on the right saying that the time has come to acknowledge that the romance has gone cold and the marriage is dead. This is despite the fact that the 2008 GOP vice-presidential nominee told reporters upon her arrival at the event that she is "seriously interested" in running for president in 2016.

    Wednesday | News Max

    Senate Democrats are increasing pressure on majority Republicans to abandon plans to block President Barack Obama's immigration orders as a condition of funding the Homeland Security Department. Second-ranking Senate Democrat Richard Durbin said it would be "the height of irresponsibility," given recent terrorist attacks in France and elsewhere, for Republicans to use the spending measure to try to thwart Obama's easing of the deportation of undocumented immigrants in the U.S. "Now is not the time to play politics with homeland security," Durbin of Illinois said Wednesday in a speech on the Senate floor.

    It would stand to reason that if you won a presidential election by a solid margin campaigning against cutting Social Security and Medicare - something that has wide support among Americans - that you wouldn't make that the cornerstone of the first budget proposal of your second term. Given his record of compromising with Republicans before negotiations ever begin, this not a shock.

    Jan 31, 2013 | American Reporter

    Some conservatives in Congress are outraged over the idea that the Obama Administration could thwart their plans to threaten blow up the economy if the President doesn't approve steep cuts to Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid. But there are a few conservatives who remember who won last November's presidential election and are willing to take President Obama at his word when he said that he's not going to negotiate with the Republican leadership in Congress who want to link a vote on the federal debt ceiling to making those cuts in social welfare spending.

    In the overall mechanics of transformative government, attitude is so important! Not just a simplistic "can do" confidence but the simple belief that government might - holy cow! - actually solve or take the lead in solving or confronting a major problem. Many GOP leaders or presidential candidates boasted during the primary campaign about how, on being elected, they would eliminate government departments left and right.

    In her best-selling book, "The Shock Doctrine," author Naomi Klein outlined a process where business and political elites take a crisis, either real or created, use it to create a sense of panic and disorientation, and then push through economic policies that wouldn't merit consideration in calmer times. That very process has been happening over the past few weeks since President Obama's re-election in the hysteria over the so-called "fiscal cliff."

    The majority of the electorate made it clear in the 45th presidential election that they want neither a king nor watered-down half-measures that pass for progress, nor more of the same Congressional obstructionism that marked President Barack Obama's first Administration, but instead seek a genuine transformation of America that is peaceful, constructive and consistent with our constitutional values and heritage. You can kick a can down the road for so long before it gets boring.

    It would be too facile to say that Hurricane Sandy was Mother Nature's revenge for the silence of Mitt Romney and President Obama on climate change during the presidential debates. Had one of those gentlemen taken our suggestion to address the issue, that might well have been a game-changing factor on Nov. 6. But will this massive, deadly storm that's taken at least t50 lives and has left millions without lights even tonight make a difference in the presidential election? It's too late in the game for both candidates, but if President Obama wins a second term, he would do well to make dealing with climate change as big a priority as health care reform was in his first term.
