"I suspect this will be old news by 2016."
It will be old news long before then. Those 90% of the people want this or that gun law is a complete fabrication.This whole gun control debate has run its course and will have run out of steam, since what good are a bunch of new gun laws if they are not enforced and criminals who commit crimes with guns are not prosecuted. Obama's home town of Chicago is a good example of promising everything while delivering nothing. http://colorlines.com/archives/2013/02/5_must-know_facts_about_chicagos_gun_violence.html
And Sylvester, dream on about Hillary and her machine...we're counting on it. There is just too much taint and slime attached to this dried up old woman for her to be a serious candidate for FFPOTUS.
I don't know, alot of female voters might have had enough of male only clubs and come to the conclusion if not Hilary and if not now when? If they ask me to take a prominent roll in her campaign i could see buttons and bumper stickers along the lines of " The time is right "
Her stint as secretary of state was no better no worst then any other in history. Your carrying the water for the boss that's all. Rubio vs. Clinton. Bring it on.....
More GOOD news.
" Rep. Steve King announced he's not running for the Senate, a move that leaves the Republican field wide-open. (Richard A. Bloom)
Iowa Rep. Steve King won't be running for Senate, he announced in a tweet Friday night. The conservative firebrand had frozen the GOP field, as his entry into the race would have made him the favorite for the nomination.
King, like Rep. Tom Latham before him, cited work in the House as reason not to run. He was initially seen as likely to join the race -- especially after Latham announced he wasn't running -- but low fundraising numbers and long indecision made political observers second-guess his ambition.
This week, Republican Gov. Terry Branstad said Iowa didn't need "another congressman" in the upper chamber, a shot at Democratic Rep. Bruce Braley that also implicated King. Though clearly frustrated with the Branstad quote, King added fuel to the fire soon after by saying he was "embarrassed" at not reaching a decision.
Meanwhile, the GOP's crop of top-tier candidates -- backups should King not run -- emerged, expressed their interest, then bowed out before King reached a decision. Lt. Gov. Kim Reynolds and Agriculture Secretary Bill Northey, both of whom grabbed the spotlight after Latham's decision, announced recently they wouldn't join the race; Northey urged King to run in his announcement.

HOW THE REAGAN REVOLUTION DAMAGED THE AMERICAN ECONOMY
THINGS PEOPLE FORGET ABOUT REAGAN
Steve Kornacki, Salon - By the summer of 1992, just 24 percent of Americans said their country was better off because of the Reagan years, while 40 percent said it was worse off -- and that more Americans (48 percent) viewed Reagan unfavorable than favorably (46 percent). .
I know i know it can be disappointing to see the " great communicator " meeting with the throat cutters in the WH sharing tea and crumpets ....shocking for those who only get the sanitized version of Dutch Reagan the " freedom fighter " meeting with the very crowd Marines are fighting in Afghanistan and it's dusty suburbs....and Rumsfeld shaking hands no less with the Hussein Capo di tuta capo in Bagdhad then touting his " shock and awe " press conf in another Republican admin.
What can you say, gops like to spread the wealth and the arms all over the globe in one admin then hire the same guys ( Rumsfeld , Gates etc... ) to act lke the fireman going into the burning building 2 admins down the road....comical if it wasn't so damm tragic.
Universal backgorund checks ....as Treasure of the Sierra Madre bandito told Bogart on a dust covered hillside ...." Universal backgound checks , we don't need no stinking backgound checks " . Came back to bite them too...
And some more from the cowboy school of diplomacy ....

Though two-thirds of Americans are opposed to American military intervention in Syria, and despite the lack of constitutional authority to intervene in Syria, Arizona Senator John McCain continues to advocate for the United States military to involve itself in Syria’s affairs.
In an article McCain wrote for USA Today, McCain outlines that various reasons .....
aw you get the picture. More bombs more intervention more dead servicemen and women while the American THINKING public voted Democrat in 08 and 12 to do the opposite, GET the American military and tax dollars out of of foreign entanglements that lead nowhere. Rather , put our brains and human and fiscal treasure in building a strong country and a strong economy.
