Changes coming to Politics Extra

A note from the blog administrator:

Starting later this week, this blog will be published in a new blog tool on a brand-new Cincinnati.Com website.


It will be the same Politics Extra you love and curse, but with some improvements. And don't worry - we'll still link back to this one.


Eventually, any bookmarks and links to this blog will take you to the new one.

Once we start posting to the new blog, you'll be able to get in and get a sneak peek at the new website before anyone else.

And more more change: You will have to register (it's free.) You will have a unique registration name under which you can post comments.

Questions? Comments? You can email blog administrator Carl Weiser at cweiser@enquirer.com

Good. Then the trust-fund babies working as paid GangOf Pervert operatives will have to identify themselves when they post RNC/White House propaganda talking points.

Glad to see the Enquirer is going to hold the Repugs accountable for their blatant lies and distortions.

Mr. Crapell, Oberführer of the Blue Chip Hitler Youth, won't be leaving anon comments here for much longer. Enjoy it while you can, Crapell. Ditto to you, Mr. Wannabe Wealthy Wingnut Wacko. No more posts one day about your pretend 'Mercedes', and posts about your pretend 'Porsche' the next day.

3;41, the hypocrite POSTING IN THE MIDDLE OF THE WORKDAY, I count more rightwingnut comments here than Dem comments. Just like your comment, all of the cowchipper's comments are posted "in the middle of the workday".

Mr. Wannabe Wealthy Wingnut Wacko, we all know that the only cars that you own are 3" long diecast matchbox cars. On the rare occassion that you get out of her basement, does your ederly mother ever let you drive her car?

Speaking of sh*tbox cars, how's that 10 year old Monte carlo, Mr. Crapple?

Game over wingnuts, you won't be anon for long!!!

Perhaps I am just some political novice not as intelligent as those who have been able to blog all day while I worked hard for myself, my family, and the government, but I don't see anyone's being "banned" over this. Actually, cincycapell and the Cheviot Sports Idiot, among others, are ahead of the game here. It looks like all us anons, me included, will have to come up with a user name. Big Deal. Don't see that keeping ayone out. It's not like the Enquirer is asking for a photo ID before posting.

cincycapell would have loved seeing in person the organizational disaster the Cow Chip Young Retards meeting was at Monty's tonight.

6 old, boring, bald, dateless, dumpy fat guys emerged from Mommy's basement to tell Chairman Alex they know more about being a Republican than he does. No wonder he didn't stick around long.

A few more right-wing trust-fund babies desprately hanging onto their cushy county jobs trying to get your pathetic little group to actually do some real political work for once.

You and your crew are either very aware it would be a fruitless efforts as every Repug is going to get crushed, or you really are that freaking lazy.

Walking in the parades this weekend would give most of your members the best workout they've had this decade.

The only one who was making any sense at all was the one Jeffy had the bartender throw out.

Yes, Jeffy, I was there.

You still have no clue, do you?

11:33, that's a nice cut-n-paste job. That was the same as every other bitter rant you go on every time the Blue Chip Young Republicans have a meeting or get mentioned in the media. We're making news; all you can do is hide behind your computer and talk about us.

The BCYR's had another great meeting last night. Anyone who was there would tell you that Alex was a fine speaker and all the questions towards him were respectful. The number 6 you mentioned probably referred to the number of new members recruited. Everyone there, except perhaps you if you actually were there, were having fun. Get the stick out of your butt and try it some time.

The Blue Chips continue to grow and get stronger. That's something you'll have to learn to deal with. It's 9:20 right now, which means you should be getting up in another hour or two to start another 16 hour blogging shift where you think about us the entire time. Have a great day liberal loser!

The only 'lord' the Blue Chip hitler Youth carries out is Satan's.

Keep dreaming 3:04. In fact, the opposite is happening, as evidenced by recent polling.

Two surveys in the past week show the Republicans’ dilemma. First, a new Rasmussen poll revealed that voters trust Democrats more than Republicans on each and every one of the 10 issues measured. Democrats enjoy double-digit advantages on the economy (50%-36%), government ethics (45%-26%), health care (54%-33%), Social Security (49%-36%), education (50%-35%), Iraq (50%-39%) and immigration (45%-35%). The GOP lags by smaller margins on national security, taxes and abortion.

Meanwhile, an ABC News/Washington Post poll similarly reflects the devastating impact for the GOP of Americans’ record-setting disapproval for President Bush and the direction of the country…With 82% of respondents now believing the U.S. has gone off the rails, Democrats have built a massive 21 point cushion (53%-32%) as the party Americans trust to “do a better job in coping with the main problems the nation faces over the next few years.”

Those lopsided results are consistent with an April poll from Rasmussen which found that “election 2008 is creating record numbers of Democrats.” The results showed a 10-point Democratic advantage in party identification (41.4% to 31.4%), almost double the margin one year earlier. That delta is unprecedented:

“In fact, the Democrats now have the largest partisan advantage over the Republicans since Rasmussen Reports began tracking this data on a monthly basis nearly sixty years ago.”

Anon 6:06 Maybe the Democrats will win the election, but after they do, they will have to deliver.
If gas prices don't go down, the war in Iraq doesn't end, Iran doesn't shut down nuclear production, your party will suffer a major backlash. I've got no dog in the fight, but you are going to be put down big time if Obama doesn't deliver.
You should tone down your postings because people will remember your cruelty.

Anon 9:20 - Democrats have already failed. Gas and food prices have risen since they took control of Congress, and the war continues. Osama bin Laden is still on the loose, and Iran is getting nuclear.

Where are all the changes we were promised when Pelosi and crew took over? Seems to me that the Dems have already overpromised and underperformed. Yet all some around here can focus on is a few corrupt Republicans, while conveniently overlooking the corruption within their own party.

Democrats who live in glass houses should not throw the first stone.

Wingnut Sock Puppet 2:08 is employing the latest right wing talking point, just like a good little party faithful Nazi.

FACT: The Dems do not have controll of congress.

FACT: Since traitorous Joe Lieberman votes with the reTHUGlicans, there is a 50/50 split in the Senate.

FACT:60 votes are required to end a filabuster in the Senate. The Dems do not have anywhere bear 60 votes, even if traitorous Joe Lieberman voted with them.

FACT:The reTHUGlicans have obstructed and blocked every major peice of legislation that the Dems have introduced.

FACT:Republicans have broken the filibuster record in 10 months for a whole Congress for two years. Republicans have stood in the way of progress instead of helping to lead the way. They have nothing to offer the American people.

In December of 2007 the Republican Senate minority set a modern-day record for blocking the most legislation during a congressional session. Congressional sessions are recorded in two-year spans, but Republicans used more filibusters than anyone else ever has, in less than half the time.

That’s a lot of obstruction. In fact Republicans are currently on pace to triple the current record for filibusters.

This has been the reTHUGlicans game plan since they lost the majority in 2006: block everything and blame the “Democratic-controlled” do-nothing Congress.

Sorry, MR. Wingnut, the American people are not buying your BS this time around.

You are toast.

2:08, May 21,
Notice the logic 6:18 uses to claim Lieberman stops them from having a majority. 6:18 hates Lieberman because Lieberman supports Israel's right to exist. 6:18 also posts as Cheviot Sports Idiot, and has hated on Lieberman's defense of Israel's right to exist before. These liberals tend to be anti-Semetic. That's why they want Obama running the country, so he can assist radical Islamics in their incessant attempts to destroy Israel. Below is one of several examples. Everyone who blogs here knows what a wonderful person Cheviot Sports Idiot, aka cincycapell, is. You will notice the similarity in "style" and content immediately. The example below is taken from the "An Obama ad you'll be seeing here" blog below. The mask slips a bit when this paragon of liberal virtue pontificates on the subject of "our" agenda, and why Joe Lieberman doesn't fit in. Apparently, any support for Israel doesn't fit "our" agenda. Jew hater much, CSI/cincycapell?


"Cheviot Sports Idiot said...
7:09 is a bigger moron than the Doughy Pants Load himself, Jonah Goldberg. Nazi's were right wing, asshat. You know, just like you.

And don't worry 8:26. Once we actually have a majority in Congress (which we do not actually have now, thanks to traitorous 'pro-Israel' neocon Joe Lieberman) we will enact our agenda. You are not going to like it very much, so perhaps you and Mr. Wingnut should shack up together in whatever right wing banana republic that you choose to relocate in."


2:08, it is pointless to attempt to argue with someone like this, because there is nothing there but hate. Jews have seen this kind of hate for thousands of years, this is just the latest forum for it.
