Rep. Eric Cantor ‘Mimics Obama’ on a Campaign To Rebrand The ‘Heartless, Racist’ GOP

Republicans’ Empty, Happy Talk: Rep. Eric Cantor’s ‘Re-Branding’ Speech Ignored The Party’s Real Problems:…







Marketeers BIG LIE: Rep. Eric Cantor Falls Flat on His Face in ‘GOP Re-branding’ Attempt






The GOP Tries To Hide It’s Racist, Bigoted, Extremist Base With Useless ‘Rebranding’ Talk






Another example of NO DIVERSITY in President Barack Hussein Obama‘s White House Cabinet…..





Washington Post: President Obama on Wednesday will nominate Recreational Equipment (REI) chief executive Sally Jewell to head the Interior Department….


The choice of Jewell, who began her career as an engineer for Mobil Oil and worked as a commercial banker before heading a nearly $2 billion outdoors equipment company, represents an unconventional choice for a post usually reserved for career politicians from the West.


But while she boasts less public policy experience than other candidates who had been under consideration, Jewell, who will have to be confirmed by the Senate, has earned national recognition for her management skills and support for outdoor recreation and habitat conservation.

Steve King candidacy in Iowa:

A blessing in disguise for Obama?

by zerlinamaxwell



Congressman Steve King (R-IA) is leading Republican hopefuls in the latest polls for next year’s Iowa Senate race to replace the retiring Democrat Tom Harkin (D-IA).



<> on February 8, 2011 in Washington, DC.

Moderate Republicans are worried about the race, and even Karl Rove is warning Republicans that King would lose badly in a general election.  What was likely going to be a competitive race to replace Harkin, now seems like an new opportunity for Democrats to not only hold on to a Senate seat, but also frame the debate and peg Republicans as extremist and outside of the mainstream.


Steve King is the poster boy for over the top, racially tinged rhetoric in his attacks on President Barack Obama.


Not only has King compared the president to Saddam Hussein, and called the president “very, very urban,” on the House floor, he has also said, “The president has demonstrated that he has a default mechanism in him that breaks down the side of race on the side that favors the black person,” in comments responding to the Skip Gates arrest controversy.


King was also a birther, long after it was cool to be a birther.  King was so down with the birthers, he actually went down to the Library of Congress to “inspect” the microfiche to make sure that the two newspaper articles announcing the president’s birth in 1961, weren’t fakes.

  1. The shame of it all is that there are some points concerning governance where Conservatives actually could contribute to the discussion if they were not such raving, racist, hateful, smug, willfully ignorant clowns.

    For example: Jack Kemp was a Conservative. Eric Cantor is a Clown.
