The Elephant Doesn’t Have A Clue

December 3, 2012

.

The hardliner right wing, the ones afraid of Norquist, or the ones afraid of losing their jobs because the racist teabaggers will get upset, haven’t changed their rhetoric at all. Maybe they will get the idea in 2 or 4 years.

That is if the left keeps up on pointing out and exposing the hypocrisy of the rethugs.

The reality should be seeping in to viewers of the Sunday shows that the Republicans don’t have a game plan. They don’t have a single, specific proposal to avoid the fiscal cliff. And even if they had one, they don’t have a roadmap to get there. They keep expecting Obama to come back with something more to their liking, which they’d also reject. Many Republicans literally don’t understand what is happening. Sen. Charles Grassley tweeted over the weekend that he was frustrated that President Obama hadn’t embraced the recommendation of the Bowles-Simpson Commission. Apparently, he is one of the many people in Washington who doesn’t understand that Bowles-Simpson recommended letting the Bush tax rates on the wealthy expire, while also proposing to cap or eliminate deductions primarily enjoyed by the wealthy.

Above all, the Republicans have yet to grasp that the field is tilted against them. Republicans have every reason to expect, based on their scouting of past Obama performances, that he will start moving toward them and then, essentially, bargain with himself. But now he doesn’t have to. Right now, the policy choice isn’t between an Obama proposal the Republicans abhor and a preferred Republican proposal. No, the choice is between an Obama proposal the Republicans abhor and the fiscal cliff, which Republicans would like even less and the Democrats could live with for a while.

The Republicans are losing, and time is running out. But instead of putting the quarterback on the field and rolling out an aggressive two-minute drill, they seem to be preparing to punt.

After the ass kicking that Adelson and the Koch brothers got after spending all that money trying to buy the White House, it may be a while before the rethugs get any marching orders.

Where was the outrage then?

The rethugs keep saying that our grandchildren will be the ones paying off President Obama’s debt.

Whose grandchildren will pay off Bush the Lesser’s debt?

A photograph taken by Wildlife Conservation Society scientists of a little known Bolivian cat species called an oncilla has won a BBC Wildlife camera-trap photo competition

The photo, which won the New Discoveries category, documents the first-known occurrence of this extremely rare spotted cat in Madidi National Park. The Oncilla (Leopardus tigrinus) occurs across the Amazon and along the tropical Andes.

About the size of a house cat, they are the smallest cat species of South America’s lowlands. Very little is known about their life history. WCS researchers Guido Ayala, Maria Viscarra, and Robert Wallace submitted the photo taken last July during camera trap surveys of jaguars and other wildlife living in Madidi – considered to be among the most biodiverse protected areas on the planet.

More than 1,300 entries were submitted from around the world. The winning entry received £1,000 (approximately $1,500), courtesy of Paramo Directional Clothing Systems and the World Land Trust.

The photo is featured in the December issue of BBC Wildlife and on the website http://www.discoverwildlife.com
