FIB, you're really getting to dewy, keep it up.

Job approval and approval rating are clearly very distinct measurements but dewy wouldn't know that

Obama had the worst SCOTUS record in modern US history. By far.

Constitutional scholar? Pfft!

Most normal-thinking Americans already admit that obama's syria 'strategy' (I use that term loosely) was an abject failure. Tulsi Gabbard just went over there with Pentagon approval ( but of course, against the wishes of pelosi lol) and here is a little of what she said upon return:

"My visit to Syria has made it abundantly clear: Our counterproductive regime change war does not serve America’s interest, and it certainly isn’t in the interest of the Syrian people.

As I visited with people from across the country, and heard heartbreaking stories of how this war has devastated their lives, I was asked, “Why is the United States and its allies helping al-Qaeda and other terrorist groups try to take over Syria? Syria did not attack the United States. Al-Qaeda did.” I had no answer.

I return to Washington, DC with even greater resolve to end our illegal war to overthrow the Syrian government."

I have pointed out all along that Syria is, and has long been a Russian proxy. The US, by arming Al-Qaeda, the Saudis, and thereby ISIS, are fighting a proxy war with Russia. Thanks Obama. WTF kind of foreign policy is that?

Under the Obama Administration, the kids got dumbed down.




Mean performance at the country level

In the 2015 PISA assessment, the United States ranked 19th in science, 20th in readings and 31st in mathematics out of 35 OECD countries (Tables I.2.14, I.4.2 and I.5.2).1 In science and reading, there was no statistically significant difference between performance in the United States and the average performance across the OECD, while in mathematics, the United States performed below the OECD average. As shown in Figure 2.1, the mean performance in the United States in science and reading has been stable since the last assessment in which they were the major domains: from 489 to 496 score points in science from 2006 to 2015, and from 500 to 497 points in reading from 2009 to 2015. However, mathematics performance in the United States fell significantly, from 481 to 470 points between 2012 (a year in which its performance was also below the OECD average) and 2015.




No automatic alt text available.


As shown in Figure 2.2, in 2015, the mean performance of the United States in science (496 score points) is statistically equivalent to that of countries with a performance ranging between 490 and 502 points; 12 other OECD countries perform at this level, including, for example, Austria, Belgium, Denmark, France, Poland and Sweden. However, the United States performs significantly below the four high-performing countries/economies discussed in this report: Canada (528), Estonia (534), Germany (509) and Hong Kong (China), a non-OECD member (523). Box 2.1 provides a context for comparing the performance of these countries and the United States.

If you were to take large US urban areas out of the report, what would the report look like? Is it possible that large Urban areas inhabited by a high percentage of ignorant families might be of some relation to low scores?

There is another part of the report that is indexed for socioeconomic factors and the change is very minor.

I was not speaking of socioeconomic factors, but instead large populations of stupid people congregated in close proximity to one another. Let's say mega cities, and the fact that their close proximity and population density ensures continued propagation, and continuation of stupidity. If you removed these dense populations of stupid people from the study, how would that effect the results?

I can guess the answer to that. And Woodrow, if I my co-opt your post for a step further, what is those huge pockets or stupid urban folks are actually subsidized so that they stay stupid, and so that they come to believe that breeding and cashing government checks and voting D is all that is expected from their existence? Is that a problem? Can our local D explain how the future looks for this system?

Not so much from my perspective.  Over the last three elections, Democrat Senators received about 5 million more votes than Republican Senators.  I suspect after 2016, that margin will more than triple.

As for the upcoming Presidential election, Republicans have a huge hurdle to overcome...


The Blue Wall

Ex:

Few things are as dangerous to a long term strategy as a short-term victory. Republicans this week scored the kind of win that sets one up for spectacular, catastrophic failure and no one is talking about it.

The Blue Wall is block of states that no Republican Presidential candidate can realistically hope to win. Tuesday that block finally extended to New Hampshire, meaning that at the outset of any Presidential campaign, a minimally effective Democratic candidate can expect to win 257 electoral votes without even trying. That’s 257 out of the 270 needed to win.

Arguably Virginia now sits behind that wall as well. Democrats won the Senate seat there without campaigning in a year when hardly anyone but Republicans showed up to vote and the GOP enjoyed its largest wave in modern history. Virginia would take that tally to 270. Again, that’s 270 out of 270.

This means that the next Presidential election, and all subsequent ones until a future party realignment, will be decided in the Democratic primary. Only by sweeping all nine of the states that remain in contention AND also flipping one impossibly Democratic state can a Republican candidate win the White House. What are the odds that a Republican candidate capable of passing muster with 2016 GOP primary voters can accomplish that feat? You do the math.

By contrast, Republicans control a far more modest Red Fortress, which currently amounts to 149  electoral votes. What happened to that fortress amid the glory of the 2014 “victory?” It shrunk yet again. Not only are New Hampshire and probably Virginia now off the competitive map, Georgia is now clearly in play at the Federal level. This trend did not start in 2014 and it will not end here. This is a long-term realignment that been in motion for more than a decade and continues to accelerate.

The biggest Republican victory in decades did not move the map. The Republican party’s geographic and demographic isolation from the rest of American actually got worse.


A few other items of interest from the 2014 election results:

- Republican’s failed to pick up a single Senate seat Blue Wall. Not one. The only GOP candidate to win a Senate seat behind the Blue Wall was the party’s last moderate, Susan Collins of Maine.

- Behind the Blue Wall there were some new Republican Governors, but their success was very specific and did not translate down the ballot. None of these candidates ran on social issues, Obama, or opposition the ACA. Rauner stands out as a particular bright spot in Illinois, but Democrats in Illinois retained their supermajority in the State Assembly, similar to other northern states, without losing a single seat.

- Vote suppression is working remarkably well, but that won’t last. Eventually Democrats will help people get the documentation they need to meet the ridiculous and confusing new requirements. The whole “voter integrity” sham may have given Republicans a one or maybe two-election boost in low-turnout races. Meanwhile we kissed off minority votes for the foreseeable future.

- Across the country, every major Democratic ballot initiative was successful, including every minimum wage increase, even in the red states.

- Every personhood amendment failed.

- For only the second time in fifty years Nebraska is sending a Democrat to Congress. Former Republican, Brad Ashford, defeated one of the GOP’s most stubborn climate deniers to take the seat.

- And that “Republican wave?” In Congressional elections this year it amounted to a total of 52% of the vote. That’s it.


Nothing can ever be called a lock and maybe Virginia remains in play.  Who knows?  But it appears the GOP will have to win every State in play including Georgia.  Good luck with that.

WASHINGTON - The Trump administration is abandoning the government's six-year-old claim that Texas' voter ID law was intended to discriminate against Hispanics and other minorities, signaling a new course in one of the signature voting rights cases brought by former President Barack Obama.

My enemy was obama, just as these protesters consider Trump their enemy.  They are unopolgetic and I am the same, unapologetic about anything I have said or thought about this man.  I border-line hated obama in his 2nd term

The difference in me and the Trump protesters is they are violent and I just wished I could be, never would dream of acting that violence out in a crowd.  These new protesters think little of human life, they want to maim, kill and destroy

They need to step up their game, and bring it on. See what happens when a bunch of average Americans have had enough of petulant children behaving badly, rioting, assaulting innocent people, and destroying other people's property. It will be ugly, quick and decisive. The cops can't and won't step in to save them this time. Just like average citizens, they've had enough too.

Yeah, it's borderline Stalinist.

One thing readers can be certain of is that Republicans have complete power right now and have the ability to investigate, or indict, any wrongdoing they think former President Obama may have been involved in.  Nothing to stop them whatsoever.  That said, I wouldn't hold your breath as the former President was completely above board. 

Republicans will spend many years to come trying to taint the Presidency of Barack Obama and will fail at every turn.  They don't want Americans to see him as the successful President he was.  Unfortunately for them, they have no chance of selling such a false narrative to the American people and, over time, these critics of President Obama will simply fade away.  In fact, if the next four years results in the turmoil many expect, the voters will be clamoring for the return of the likes of Barack Obama.  He'll just become more popular.

Speaking of more popular, Obama has drawn close to Reagan as greatest modern President.  Amazing.

Congress calls for investigation of Obama using US taxpayer money to fund leftist groups influencing foreign elections.

http://freebeacon.com/politics/congress-demands-investigation-obama-admin-meddling-foreign-elections/

Ex

"Over the past few months, elected officials and political leaders of foreign nations have been coming to me with disappointing news and reports of U.S. activity in their respective countries," Lee said in a statement. "This includes reports of diplomats playing political favorites, USAID funds supporting extreme and sometimes violent political activists, and the U.S. government working to marginalize the moderates and conservatives in leadership roles."

"This sort of political favoritism from our missions around the world is unacceptable and endangers our bilateral relationships," he said.
