Песня Хиллари…

По Сети распространяется рекламная песня Хиллари Клинтон.

Это к ее президентской кампании в 2016-ом. Бред, конечно. На мой взгляд.

Надо полагать, гонки, где призом будет Белый Дом, уже начались.

Очень интересно, кого выставят Республиканцы? Никак не могу поверить, что Республиканская Партия не может найти среди своих и выставить стоящего кандидата.

Кстати, демократы сегодня потеряли еще одно место. Сенатором от Луизианы теперь будет Республиканец.

Louisiana Democratic Sen. Mary Landrieu lost her reelection bid Saturday in a runoff race with Republican challenger Rep. Bill Cassidy, despite a relentless, against-long-odds effort.

Landrieu, who was seeking a fourth term, trailed by double digits and had lost most of her support going into the election. With 100 percent of the precincts reporting late Saturday, Cassidy had received 56 percent of the vote, to 44 percent for Landrieu.

Landrieu barnstormed the state this week, driving some 1,200 miles in a rented SUV, stopping in little towns and bigger cities, making one last appeal to voters to give her another term in Washington.

“There is no quit,” Landrieu said in her concession speech. “It’s been nothing but a joy to serve this state for over 34 years.”

Cassidy’s win extends the GOP’s domination of the 2014 midterm elections that put Republicans in charge of Capitol Hill for the final two years of President Obama’s tenure.

Republicans will hold 54 seats when the Senate convenes in January, nine more than they have now.

“Once again, voters have spoken clearly,” Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus said. “They have rejected the Democrat agenda and the Obama-Clinton policies that have produced higher healthcare costs and job-killing regulations.”

The race mirrored contests in other states that Obama lost in 2012, with Landrieu joining Alaska Sen. Mark Begich, North Carolina Sen. Kay Hagan and Arkansas Sen. Mark Pryor in defeat. Democrats ceded seats in Montana, South Dakota and West Virginia after incumbents opted not to run again.

Like victorious Republicans in those races, Cassidy, 57, made his bid more about Obama than about his own vision for the job. An Illinois native and medical doctor, Cassidy made few public appearances during the runoff, seeking to avoid missteps that could change the race.

Обама начинает и…

На этой неделе Обама начинает свое противостояние с Республиканцами, которые, после промежуточных выборов теперь контролируют Сенат.

Пока, основными “точками пересечения” является строительство нефтепровода через территорию США в Канаду и Иммиграционная реформа. Республиканцы грозятся начать депортировать всех “нелегалов”, которые будут установлены соответствующими службами как живущие в стране незаконно.

Обама обещал провести реформу, с возможностью всем “нелегалам” легализоваться. Где-то я видел цифру в несколько миллионов нелегально проживающих в стране.

Президент Обама давал обещания баллотируясь на второй срок в “Белом Доме”. Как я понимаю, таким образом он обеспечил себе голоса испаноговорящей части избирателей.

В первом случае, с нефтепроводом, у Обамы есть только право “вето”, которое он грозится применить. С иммиграционной реформой все обстоит сложнее. Впрочем, Обама может и здесь воспользоваться правом “вето”.

Как бы то ни было, а за оставшиеся два года президенства, если Обама не сможет провести реформу так, как он это обещал, — он может стать самым недееспособным Президентом. Его заслуга пока, — только реформа здравоохранения, так называемая ObamaCare. Но и это достижение Президента Республиканцы планируют “обнулить”.

Два оставшиеся года для Обамы обещают быть очень “веселыми”.

Washington (CNN) — A defiant Barack Obama dives into what could be a defining period of his presidency this week, after repeatedly enraging Republicans from afar during his Asia tour.
Obama faces showdowns with the GOP over immigration, the Keystone XL pipeline and his drive for a nuclear deal with Iran, all of which have huge consequences for his political legacy.
Far from being chastened by the Republican capture of the Senate, Obama is setting out to prove he is no lame duck and can still set the agenda.
But the GOP insists the mid-terms gave them a share of power in Washington, and believe Obama risks usurping his authority and even the constitution with his bold new strategy.
Obama drawing lines on immigration, climate change Obama chose a highly symbolic setting to set the tone for two final White House years in which he will face a unified Republican Congress.
Side-by-side in Myanmar with the world’s most famous dissident, Obama refused to bow to what Republicans regard as the capital’s new political “reality.”
On the veranda of the lakeside villa from where Aung San Suu Kyi faced down a junta, Obama said he had long warned House Republicans he would use executive power to reform the US immigration system if they failed to.

Ничего он не понял…

После проигранных промежуточных выборов, первая реакция Обамы говорила, как бы, что он — понял.

Ничего он не понял…

President Barack Obama is still not doubting the virtue of any of his policies as a result of his party’s beating in last week’s midterms. He’s trying to rethink his messaging on everything from immigration to sending more troops to Iraq and negotiations with Iran. So far, though, the sales job isn’t drastically different.

He told CBS’ Bob Schieffer in an interview for “Face the Nation” on Sunday that “there is a failure of politics there that we’ve got to improve on” among his team and Democrats. “It’s not enough just to build a better mousetrap. People don’t automatically come beating to your door. We’ve got to sell it.”

Sounding sort of half-hearted about it, Obama accepted responsibility for the election results, borrowing from Harry Truman to say “the buck stops with me.” He refrained from taking a jab back at outgoing Majority Leader Harry Reid, whose staff has laid the blame at Obama’s feet. “There are times,” he said, “there’s no doubt about it, where, you know I think we have not been successful in going out there and letting people know what it is that we’re trying to do and why this is the right direction.”

Результаты дня голосования…

Ну, что..

Губернатором Орегона в четвертый раз стал Джон Китцхабер (John Kitzhaber)

Марихуану легализовали и Орегон стал третьим штатом в США, в котором это разрешено. Результаты практически разделились, но.. победили любители “травки”
Нужно признать, что любители марихуаны оказались активнее и, как сейчас выясняется, собрали на предвыборную кампанию больше денег, чем нелюбители. Короче, — победила дружба активность.

Меркли снова выбрали в Сенат.

И, пожалуй, самое главное, — Демократы потеряли Сенат и теперь обе Палаты контролируют Республиканцы.

Что и как будет дальше и к чему победа Республиканцев приведет, — время покажет. Понятно, что ничего хорошего это не обещает. Республиканцы уже пообещали что-то сделать с главным завоеванием Администрации Обамы, его реформой Здравоохранения, которую в народе называют (Обамакэйр) Obamacare.

PORTLAND, Ore. – A measure to legalize marijuana for recreational use in Oregon has passed, according to KGW news partner The Oregonian.

Oregon becomes the third U.S. state to legalize recreational pot. With two-thirds of precincts reporting, legal pot lead the race by eight percentage points, 54 to 46.

Polls showed Measure 91 was extremely close heading into Election Day.

Opinions on the measure varied by age. The measure had support from 56 percent of voters under age 35, but only 30 percent support from voters older than 65, polls showed.

“It’s always an uphill battle to win a marijuana legalization initiative in a year like this, when young people are so much less likely to vote, which makes today’s victory all the sweeter,” said Ethan Nadelmann, executive director of the Drug Policy Alliance. “The pace of reform is accelerating, other states are sure to follow, and even Congress is poised to wake from its slumber.”

Under the measure, Oregonians 21 and older will be able to possess and smoke marijuana starting July 1 of 2015.

Adults will be able to carry up to one ounce legally, and have up to eight ounces at home, per household. Each household will be allowed grow up to four plants at a time for personal use.

The Oregon Liquor Control Commission will regulate the sale of marijuana in a similar way it regulates alcohol.

People over the age of 21 can purchase a limited amount of marijuana from licensed retailers. It will likely take around two years before the system is up and running in the state. The Oregon Liquor Control Commission will have until January 1, 2016 to set up the system and rules for processing and selling pot. They could start accepting applications January 4.

There will be regulations on where people can consume marijuana. Driving under the influence will still prohibited.

Currently, marijuana is illegal except for medical use.

Medical marijuana laws will not be affected.

The campaign to legalize pot made a play for young voters on Facebook.

Supporters of marijuana legalization raised far more money than their opponents, including landing nearly $1.5 million from a group called Drug Policy Action.

The “no” campaign only raised a fraction of that money, with the majority coming from the Oregon State Sheriff’s Association.

Отсюда.

По поводу завтрашних выборов…

…Уже начали высказываться мнения..

After tomorrow’s election, we could be headed for the most dangerous period of history since the Civil War. All signs point to the Republicans regaining complete control of Congress, setting the stage for a battle between the president and the GOP over immigration reform signed into law with the president’s pen and paper. The Democrats will be able to sit back and appear to the moderates, and at the forefront will be the next President of the United States: Hillary Rodham Clinton. How does it happen? Glenn laid out the prediction on radio Monday morning.

Who wins tomorrow’s election? I will tell you that I do not believe it will be you that wins. It may be the Democrats, it may be the Republicans. But it definitely will not be you. And let me explain exactly what I mean by that.

I believe the Republicans are going to win tomorrow. The Republicans are going to win control of the Senate and the House. And before people who might be in this audience start to cheer, let me explain why that isn’t necessarily a good thing, even for the Republicans.

Совсем немного о выборах…

Этим летом, когда я куда-либо ездил, несколько раз я встречал в трамваях или на остановках, людей со списками, собирающих подписи. Естественно, я интересовался, что это такое и под чем “подписываются”?

Был немало удивлен. Люди эти не собирали подписи. Они регистрировали избирателей. Оказывается, очень много людей полностью игнорируют свои гражданские права.

Не хотят они выбирать, и — все тут.

А удивлен я был по одной простой причине. Первое, что я сделал, получив Гражданство, — зарегистрировался как избиратель.

А если возвращаться к предстоящим вскоре выборам, то… было бы очень неплохо, если бы “демократы” потеряли еще больше мест. На мой взгляд, конечно же.

Буду голосовать за Монику.

Моника не пройдет в Сенат?…

Это я про Монику Веби (Monica Wehby) которая баллотируется в Сенат от нашего Штата от Республиканцев.

Моника

Это она. Детский нейрохирург. Как я понимаю, неплохой нейрохирург.

Получится ли из нее политик?

Большой вопрос, конечно. Если честно, я совсем немного следил за предстоящими выборами. От штата Орегон положено два сенатора. (Такое во всех штатах). Четыре года назад от нашего штата в Сенате были один “демократ” и один “республиканец”. При том, что от Сенатора “республиканца” проку было больше, прошлые выборы он проиграл. Такое бывает. Орегон, — очень “демократический” штат. Сейчас Моника идет от республиканской партии и я уже вижу, как ее “давят”.

The Oregon GOP Senate candidate’s difficulties began at the end of the primary campaign with the revelation, apparently a surprise to the people who urged her into the race, that she had three times been the subject of police calls for domestic disturbance. This may not be comparable to being discovered in the back room of a strip club, and may not be a disqualification from the Senate – it certainly wouldn’t disqualify her from the NFL – but it’s an awkward thing to pop up.

It may not have helped that Wehby’s immediate reaction was to blame the Merkley campaign staff, although there was no evidence that they had called the cops.

Then observers noted a curious familiarity in policy language on Wehby’s campaign web site. Her plans on health care in particular, repeatedly cited as reflecting her special insights into the issue as a pediatric neurosurgeon, turned out to be lifted intact from the medical authority Karl Rove. Once again, the campaign’s response may not have been ideal, with a campaign spokesman sniffing, “Dr. Wehby is too busy performing brain surgery on sick children to respond, sorry.”

Actually, she wasn’t.

It took a while for the Wehby campaign to reach the proper position in such cases, blaming a departed campaign staff member – although, uncooperatively, the former staffer has been insisting it wasn’t his fault.

The Senate campaign has provided lots of things to discuss in campaign debates, except so far it seems there will be only one – in Medford, several hundred miles from most of the Oregon electorate. Friday, Wehby definitively refused a Portland TV debate, a standard element of an Oregon Senate or governor’s race campaign.

Typically, challengers – especially challengers trailing in the polls – are eager for debates, suggesting holding them on a weekly basis, or in every part of the state, or on every issue that can be drawn out of a hat. Incumbents and frontrunners – usually a redundancy – show a modest reluctance on debates, although this being Oregon, they generally agree to several.

Wehby’s agreeing to only one debate, on Medford TV, displays a shyness unusual among challengers, usually so eager for TV time that they’ll leap to appear on surveillance cameras. Wehby, however, has shown this diffidence before, declining the only televised debate, on KGW-TV, in the Republican primary campaign.

Нет, я ничего не знаю о Монике как о политике. Никто не знает. Похоже, она сама об этом знает очень немного, не была она политиком…

Но, пресса ее уже “заметила”. По тому количеству рекламы на тв и.. на ютубе, я могу судить, что Джеф Меркли (Jeff Merkley) тратит немаленькие деньги на свою предвыборную компанию.

И, не совсем “чистую”, нужно заметить.

Интересно, что покажут выборы?!

Проголосовал…

Пару дней назад я исполнил свой гражданский долг.

Ромни.

Пока еще не договорились

И у многих уже появляется сомнение в том, что они смогут договориться вообще.

Washington (CNN) — The Senate delayed consideration of Majority Leader Harry Reid’s debt ceiling proposal late Saturday night, pushing back a key procedural vote by 12 hours.

The vote to stop debate and end a GOP filibuster on the plan will now be held at 1 p.m. ET on Sunday, as opposed to 1 a.m.

Reid, D-Nevada, said he was asking for a delay to provide additional time for negotiations underway at the White House.

There are “many elements to be finalized” and still “a distance to go,” Reid said. “We should give everyone as much room as possible to do their work.”

Reid’s announcement capped a day of sharp partisan voting in the House and extended talks behind closed doors between congressional and administration officials. Concern continued to grow that Congress will fail to raise the nation’s debt ceiling in time to avoid a potentially devastating national default next week.

А, вот, если не договорятся — что произойдет?

Кризис переносится в… Твиттер

Я сегодня заметил необычайную активность одного очень известного блоггера.

BarackObama

Если кому интересно, можете посмотреть сами, но, как минимум больше пятидесяти сообщений в этом блоге сегодня/вчера — точно появилось.

Видимо, таким образом Администрация Белого Дома пытается нажимать на Республиканцев.

Кризис-то, — уже, вот-вот…
