    GM TODville.

    It’s only 9am (ish) on the west coast, and TOD is on the third thread of the day (!).

    Excited about tonight’s SOTU.

    Reminder (as if TOD needed some) of how MSM stay silent about GOP, yet #BlameObama for everything under the sun (unless it’s good news for Americans, in which case, bring out the Cone Of Silence.

    Rand Paul: Obama Should Say He’s A Failure, Then Resign In State Of The Union

    “Well, I think from President Obama’s perspective, the best thing he could do would be to leave office early.”

    posted on Jan. 12, 2016, at 10:51 a.m.

    Rand Paul says he’d like to see President Obama announce in the State of the Union that he’s a failure and then resign.

    “Well, I think from President Obama’s perspective, the best thing he could do would be to leave office early,” the Kentucky senator and Republican presidential candidate said on Good Morning with Dan Mitchell. “I wish that tonight he would announce, ‘hey guys, I’ve really been a failure as a president over the last seven years and I’m gonna take off early so cause I want to go play golf.’

    “I really think Obama has got it all wrong about economy,” Paul added, more substantively, saying Obama likes deficits and market intervention.

    “It would be nice if he could own up to that, but his world view is that government is the answer,” said Paul.

    Paul, who was recently knocked out of the main Republican presidential debate due to low poll numbers, also addressed his boycott of participation in any so-called undercard debate.

      Rand Paul should say he’s a failure and resign from the Senate, the different here is Rand Paul is a failure, POTUS is not. Anyone want to know why Capital Hill is so divided, it’s because of these Republicans like Paul, Cruz, Ryan, McConnell, all of them who hate this black President.

      Shorter answer: there aren’t enough workers suffering, the air isn’t polluted enough, and there aren’t enough products blowing up in people’s faces (guns excluded) to feed the already bloated rich.

      I loathe them ALL.

      Baby Paul is envious because, like his father, he will never be elected President of the United States . Now I see why Christian theologians identified “envy” as one of the seven deadly sins.

    Good Afternoon TODVille.

    Does anyone know if Ben Carson still operates in the brain? That is, if the fever to be president has not annihilated his skills.

    Ben Carson might need to operate on Tavis Miley.

    Matt Lauer asked President Barack Obama if he could imagine Donald Trump giving a State of the Union address. His response:

    “Well, I can imagine it in a Saturday Night [Live] skit.”

    Right before, during and after PBO gives the SOTU address, I will be seeking out, posting, RT-ing and fav’ing posts like these. Let’s drown out the negative media, GOP, emoleft, PUMA, etc. contingents as we elevate our President in celebration and gratitude and TRIUMPH!.

    Obama gives military largest raise in 5 years, GOP refuses to give credit

    President Obama’s pay raise for the military is set to go into effect at the end of the week. Despite being the largest increase in five years, Republicans have refused to give credit where credit is due.

    As the summer came to a close, Obama ordered an “across the board” pay increase for federal workers, with special attention being paid to those in the military. All federal civilian workers will receive an increase of one percent, while members of the military will get an increase of 1.3 percent. Over the last two years, the military increase was at one percent, while a pay freeze was in effect during 2011-2013. In addition to the raise, the recently signed National Defense Authorization Act has improved the way members of the military can access retirement benefits, as reported by the Chicago Tribune on Dec. 28.

    As the Federal Times pointed out, Democrats in the House and Senate had originally proposed a 3.8 percent increase for federal workers, but the proposal died in the Republican controlled House. While pay for members of the military increases depending on length of service and rank, PayScale.com notes that the average salary for a solider is just over $40,000 a year, a number that most people agree is too low…\\\

    Hard to disagree with David Brooks on any of this …

    “Evangelicals and other conservatives have had their best influence on American politics when they have proceeded in a spirit of personalism — when they have answered hostility with service and emphasized the infinite dignity of each person. They have won elections as happy and hopeful warriors. Ted Cruz’s brutal, fear-driven, apocalypse-based approach is the antithesis of that.”

    Which is a statement I rarely have ever made about anything David Brooks says/writes ….

      It has been years since I was a practicing anything, but if your beliefs are rooted in brutality, unforgiving judgment and divisiveness, you are not, by definition, Christian. Oh, you may call yourself one, as many hypocrites do, and twist theology to fit your own sick needs, but it’s more to do with an oversize ego than anything Christ himself ever preached. Cruz has a pathological personality that, like Trump, is consumed with self. There is no “salt and light” in him, only an almost overwhelming ability to repel and disgust.

    Congrats to all the Gold ⭐ winners since last night, starting with this fine post.
    On Election day, 3 Supreme Court Justices: Gingsberg, Scalia and Kennedy would all be 80yrs plus. In 2017, Breyer would turn 80yrs too. 2016 is Mighty Important!

      Ted Cruz is not eligible to be president

      Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tex.) holds a town hall at Praise Community Church in Mason City, Iowa, on Friday. (Patrick Semansky/Associated Press)
      By Mary Brigid McManamon January 12 at 11:24 AM
      Mary Brigid McManamon is a constitutional law professor at Widener University’s Delaware Law School.
      Donald Trump is actually right about something: Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tex.) is not a natural-born citizen and therefore is not eligible to be president or vice president of the United States.

      The Constitution provides that “No person except a natural born Citizen . . . shall be eligible to the Office of President.” The concept of “natural born” comes from common law, and it is that law the Supreme Court has said we must turn to for the concept’s definition. On this subject, common law is clear and unambiguous. The 18th-century English jurist William Blackstone, the preeminent authority on it, declared natural-born citizens are “such as are born within the dominions of the crown of England,” while aliens are “such as are born out of it.” The key to this division is the assumption of allegiance to one’s country of birth. The Americans who drafted the Constitution adopted this principle for the United States. James Madison, known as the “father of the Constitution,” stated, “It is an established maxim that birth is a criterion of allegiance. . . . [And] place is the most certain criterion; it is what applies in the United States.”

    Tragic Gun Accident™ By Responsible Gun Owner Kills Her 8-Year-Old

    A Georgia girl was killed in an apparently accidental shooting that also wounded her mother.

    Marsha Lynch said she was braiding her daughter’s hair when a handgun fell to the floor and fired, striking her in the leg and then shooting her 8-year-old daughter in the head.

    Sharia Lynch died from the gunshot wound before she could be airlifted to an area hospital.

    Oregon Sheriff Accuses Armed Protesters of Intimidation, Harassment

    Local law enforcement is accusing armed protesters who seized an Oregon wildlife refuge of harassment and intimidation.

    In a statement Monday, Harney County Sheriff Dave Ward described an “uptick” in reports of “law enforcement officers and community members being followed home; of people sitting in cars outside their homes, observing their movements and those of their families; and of people following them and their families as they move around the community.”

    Ward added, “While not direct physical threats, these activities are clearly designed to try to intimidate.”

    Federal employees of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge, the site occupied by the protestors, also reported “a number of uncomfortable instances” of “unknown” outsiders idling outside their homes, watching them and initiating debates about their employment.
