The republicans have basically branded themselves as the anti-Obama. They aren’t for very much except low taxes low taxes on the wealthy and corporations. So they have to frame their rhetoric around what they are not. Bill Maher in his “New Rules” segment has decided that only solution to this hypocrisy is for the republicans to own their rhetoric lock stock and barrel and have as their presidential nominee a true anti-Obama Karab Amabo is Bill Maher’s choice for the Republican nomination. After all, even the name is Barack Obama spelled backward.

Last week I was the victim of a robbery. I’ve worked in some rough neighborhoods in my time - and have never once been robbed. So imagine my surprise when my briefcase was snatched by a man on foot who then jumped into a car with an accomplice and drove off.
A good Samaritan managed to observe the crime and took off after the robbers. A high speed chase with several police cars and the good Samaritan ensued and the stoned robber was cornered in a neighboring town in what only can be described as a domestic version of “shock and awe.” I was stunned at the man-power on the scene that was involved in recovering a stolen computer bag/briefcase.
Although I was grateful to get my iPhone back and my wallet and papers, had these crime Lords gotten away - I would have been lighter about $600 and change. It also has cost me in terms of business because of the time and hassle involved.
