It isnt really because of their bias though, actually it is because they have no flare. Drudge and HuffPo have no such problem. I enjoy reading the HuffPo app when i am waiting in line. Mostly because it is the most iPhone friendly in my opinion.
I must say though that i have never sought out NPR as a news source. I very much enjoy reading the BBC when i get a chance and al-Jazerra is no longer what they use to be.
True, and i think that all of them are pretty well insulated. For proof on NPR's behalf, it doesnt go conservative when a Republican congress or president step into the picture.
I almost typed "held hostage", but i went back and took it out.
I read this and thought "well maybe state funded media isnt all bad". BBC and al-Jazerra are both great news organizations.
We could do other things after that, but im going to get those middle and lower class tax cuts permanent so they cant be held up by the rich extensions or the rich ending.
If i were him, i would have the Senate introduce a bill that permanently lowered the middle class tax cuts and extends the payroll tax relief. I would not include anything else so they can say "well i like that, but i dont like this little thing".
Actually the stimulus barely passed in both houses. I agree he could have and should have done a lot of those things, but it wasnt as easy as people make it seem. Obama didnt just run over the house and senate as people like to pretend.
He is losing the battle with Grover Norquist. He wont put anything out there, i dont know why. He is finally putting something out there in September, but i absolutely bet it will be watered down. He doesnt get the art of negotiation. I tell my brother, when we play a game involving trade that i never make an offer that i would accept if i were on the other side. You start to your side and work to the middle as opposed to starting in the middle and moving away from what you want.
Very true. He needs to come out boldly as soon as he gets back (for the record i think that he is entitled to a vacation) and say "this is what we need to do". He needs to push for that payroll tax holiday, he needs to push for a bill to make the middle class tax cuts permanent, and he needs to push for a way to fix our crumbling infrastructure. If he raised the top rates to their old location or added the new bracket as i want then he could pay for the infrastructure program.
I also applied for a "Undersecretary of University Services for Information Technology" position in the Student Government.
But that is just sad. 7% of people dont care between Obama and Bachmann. For all the complaints about Obama, that anyone would consider voting for her that isnt a card carrying clan member or fresh out of a mental institution scares the living daylights out of me.
