Obama inherits failing economy ... from Obama

It's going to be tough for Obama and his media lapdogs to pin this one on George W. Bush since the U.S. economy went into the tank at the end of 2012 after 3.5 years of failed policies under Barack Obama.

'What Difference Does It Make?' - aka 'The Hillary Shuffle'

6,000 Attend 'Million Moms for Gun Control' Rally

Less than 6,000 people attended a Washington, D.C., rally this weekend billed as 'Million Moms for Gun Control' ... Liberals really do have a problem with math, which could explain how Obama has added $6 trillion to the national debt in 4 years after promising to cut the debt in half during his first term.

Sen. Toomey backs term limits for Congress


U.S. Sen. Pat Toomey (R-Pa.) announced Wednesday he will reintroduce legislation with Sen. David Vitter (R-La.) to establish term limits for members of Congress. Their legislation would create a constitutional amendment that limits Senators and Congressmen to three terms in the U.S. House of Representatives and two terms in the U.S. Senate.  

Toomey is a rare breed of politician, who imposed term limits on himself while serving in the House. He stepped down after three terms representing Pennsylvania's 15th Congressional District.

From a press release issued by Toomey's office: 
"Congress should not be a body of career politicians who have forgotten why they were sent to Washington in the first place," Sen. Toomey said. "We are here to do the people’s work, to solve the problems we face, and to leave to our children a stronger, safer, more prosperous nation. I kept my promise to serve just three terms in the House of Representatives. I am pleased to cosponsor a Constitutional amendment to enact term limits for both the U.S. House of Representatives and the U.S. Senate, and I look forward to working with my colleagues on both sides of the aisle to see this through."

"Not allowing individuals to remain in office for an eternity is an important step we need to take to restore confidence in Congress," said Sen. Vitter. "Call it Potomac Fever, or whatever you'd like, but the longer some folks are in Washington, the more taxpayer money they want to spend."

Cosponsors of the legislation include U.S. Sens. Kelly Ayotte (R-N.H.), Tom Coburn (R-Okla.),  Ted Cruz (R-Texas), Ron Johnson (R-Wis.), Mike Lee (R-Utah), Rand Paul (R-Ky.) and Marco Rubio (R-Fla.).

Pennsylvania Dems See Gov. Corbett As Vulnerable in 2014

Pennsylvania Democrats are salivating at the prospect of taking on Republican Gov. Tom Corbett in 2014, but Corbett has not done a bad job in his first two years as governor.

Considering the fiscal mess left by former Gov. Ed Rendell, a free-spending Democrat, Corbett has had his hands full trying to restore fiscal sanity to the Keystone State.

And his efforts to privatize the state lottery and liquor systems could pay off big dividends for state taxpayers.

While Rendell kicked the can down the road on two pressing issues - public pension reform and transportation - Corbett said he is willing to tackle both problems, which has made him unpopular with the core constituency of Democrats - labor unions.

Corbett's poll numbers are down and there's even talk of a primary challenge from his own party by Montgomery County Commissioner Bruce L. Castor Jr., but don't bury Corbett so quickly.

Granted, Corbett  is the victim of lousy PR by his own staff and he continuously battles anti-Republican Harrisburg press corps that fawned over Rendell for eight years, but don't write off Corbett's political future just yet.

The only reason Democrats did so well in the 2012 elections for three state row offices was having Barack Obama at the top of the ticket. They won't have that luxury in 2014.

An if Corbett continues to sign balanced budgets on time - something Rendell was unable or unwilling to do over eight years - Pennsylvania voters will be willing to take another look at a second Corbett term when 2014 rolls around.

Rand Paul vs. King Barack I

Barack Obama received the support of 51% of the voters on Nov. 6, 2012 (of the 59% of registered voters who bothered to show up on Election Day) and somehow he is under the delusion that he was crowned King of America.

John Hayward: Defeated presidential candidate Mitt Romney was right about an awful lot of things, including some things he was roundly criticized for saying during the presidential campaign.  The most grimly humorous example was his comment about Jeep production moving to China – hilariously rated “Lie of the Year” by Politifact, which ignored a blizzard of absolute bull from Barack Obama to bestow the honor.

Record number of Americans arming themselves as Obama pushes gun control

From Reuters:
The FBI recorded 2.8 million background checks during December, surpassing the mark set in November of 2 million checks. The number was nearly 50 percent over December 2011, when the FBI performed a then-record 1.9 million checks.
It's pretty clear why Americans feel the need to exercise their Second Amendment rights to protect their families, businesses and property: The re-election of anti-Second Amendment Barack Obama and the calls from the far left and their media allies to restrict gun sales following the Newtown, Conn., tragedy.

Entire Pa. GOP Congressional delegation backs Obama tax hikes

Shocking! All 12 Republican members of Congress from Pennsylvania voted with the Democrats to back Barack Obama's $620 billion in tax hikes. The Obama "compromise" to avoid the fiscall cliff will actually add $4 trillion in new debt, according to the Congressional Budget Office.

Republican Sen. Pat Toomey joined his Democratic colleague Bob Casey Jr. in supporting the tax hikes in the Senate.

It's official: Everyone in Washington, D.C., is an enemy of the American taxpayer.
