David Cobb was born in San Leon, Texas. After working as a crewman on a Gulf Coast shrimp boat, a construction worker and a waiter, David Cobb graduated from the University of Houston Law School in 1993. After several years in private practice as a Houston, Texas attorney, he became engaged in politics. During the 1980s, he campaigned for the Democratic presidential candidacies of Jesse Jackson and Jerry Brown. Those experiences left him disenchanted with and disaffected from the Democratic Party. Consequently, he turned his activism to broad issues of democracy and corporations, joining with citizens' groups in lectures, seminars, and workshops throughout the U.S. He sought to promote his view that corporations became unelected governing institutions, which should be overthrown by means of a nonviolent democratic revolution.
In 2000, David Cobb answered the call of Green Presidential candidate Ralph Nader to organize Nader's Texas campaign. He coordinated a successful ballot access drive in the state. Concurrently, Cobb became Green Party of the United States General Counsel.
In 2002, David Cobb ran for Texas Attorney General on the Green ticket and used his candidacy to "barnstorm" Texas localities with little Green representation. His election bid was unsuccessful, winning just 0.92% of the vote. The Green Party of Texas lost its ballot access, which remained out of reach until 2010. The next year, a Green committee tagged him as a possible presidential candidate, which challenge he accepted. [Wikipedia]

"[T]he distortions and lack of credibility of the Obama administration have matched and now trumped those of its predecessors. The public may have long ago forgotten that Obama did not close down Guantanamo as promised, or cut the deficit in half by the end of his first term, or stop the revolving door of lobbyists coming in and out of the executive branch. "The public may even have forgiven the president when the stimulus bill never lowered unemployment as promised, or when his misleading boasts about vast increases in oil and gas production came to fruition despite, not because, of his efforts.
"But the distortions and broken promises have now become so frequent that many at home and abroad are finally tuning out the president. Almost nothing promised about the Affordable Care Act is proving true. Contrary to presidential assurances, Obamacare has not lowered premiums or deductibles. It will not reduce the deficit or improve business competitiveness. It really will alter existing health plans and in some cases lead to their cancellation. Signing up is certainly not as easy as buying something online on Amazon.
"Two considerations often turn presidential ethical lapses into political disasters. Unfortunately, both apply to the present administration."
Republicans have not won a decisive presidential election since 1988. Polls show that the party’s stance on practically every issue is a loser: same-sex marriage, international affairs, immigration, even taxes and the deficit. But this dismal situation only a quarter year earlier, was the plight of the Democrats.
Democrats have simply overwhelmed Republicans with their technological superiority; starting with the cooked voting machines that determine the outcome and not the ballot.
In the late 1980s, Democrats were the party of racial quotas, handgun bans, and welfare rights, viewed as soft on crime, weak on communism, and antagonistic to family values. The party’s lone president since 1964, Jimmy Carter, won post-Watergate with just 50 percent of the vote. “You’d look at polls and see that the American public agreed with the Republican Party on every meaningful voting issue.

On November 14, 2007 Joe Horn shot and killed two burglars in Pasadena, Texas. He should receive the highest award that our nation has to offer to a civilian. The Presidential Medal of Freedom should be awarded to him for shooting the criminal filth from South of the Border, who unlawfully entered our nation to commit crimes against U.S. Citizens. On second thought, considering that the past recipients of our Nation's Highest Award for a Civilian has been given to worthless niggers, traitors, terrorists, and filthy jews, maybe we should give a pass on that recommendation. I doubt Joe would accept the award anyway, especially from a degenerate of unknown origin and loyalties. Instead, I will honor Joe Horn on tonight's episode.
It wasn't always a given that we'd have a single executive who has the power to make final decisions about the fate of our country.
Every four years, political frenzy seizes the nation for months building up to the presidential election.
Often lost in the hoopla of the campaign trail, though, is the question of how it all began: Why do we have a president in the first place?
It wasn't always a given that we'd have a single executive who has the power to make final decisions about the fate of our country, historians say. When the Founding Fathers met to design the constitution, in fact, many were skeptical about appointing a chief.
We’re back! My brother Ken and I are bringing back the extremely popular Blog Talk Radio show “Hand’s On Politics.”
We started this program to discuss the 2012 presidential election and try to communicate how bad the policies of President Obama were to the moral and economic health of this nation. Although thousands of people listened, the president was re-elected. Go figure? We tried and failed but we don’t flinch in the light of failure, we press on and will continue to discuss the political issues of the day and do our best to inform the “low information voter.”
As a constitutional “scholar” (I have read the Constitution more times than there are members of Congress), we discuss the issues from a founding context. We will apply economic theory (Ken is an economic “scholar” since he can balance a checkbook) in a way it is easy to understand. Ken will use really simple examples that even I can understand. We will discuss the responsibility of the media in a free society. The NSA and the 4 amendment (I think we scared away our “low information listeners” already!), and so many other issues of the day.
We will make fun of liberal policies and spoof their results compared to intent. We will be as funny as we can in light of the topic and introduce “characters” like “Richie Bag – O – Donuts” (that’s me doing my best Bronx impressions & Kenny will play the angry, uninformed, full of confidence in what he doesn’t know lefty). We will take the issues of the day and put our spin on them.
Talk shows are a dime a dozen but we have discounted ours to reflect our originality and popularity to a penny for your thoughts.
The show can be heard Wednesday evenings from 7:00 PM – 8:30 PM Eastern.
Hosted by criminal defense lawyer Elizabeth Kelley, AuthorChats features in-depth interviews with writers about their recent works. In this episode, she talks with John Prados, senior fellow of the National Security Archive in Washington. DC, about his book "The Family Jewels: The CIA, Secrecy, and Presidential Power." This is part of the Discovering America series published by the University of Texas Press, Mark Crispin Miller, Professor of Media Ecology at New York University, Series Editor. http://elizabethkelleylaw.com.
Joe “The Plumber” Wurzelbacher crashed on the scene in 2008 when a chance run-in with then candidate Barack Obama allowed Joe to confront the soon-to-be president on his tax-and-spend Socialist philosophy. It was then, in a moment of clarity, Barack Obama let slip his real agenda; “I just want to spread some of that wealth around…”
Indeed, and no truer words have been spoken, it turns out.
Candidates immediately began adopting Joe as their guy in the middle class, mentioning “Joe the Plumber” on talk shows, stump speeches and even televised debates.
But Joe Wurzelbacher had plans other than being a prop for these wanna be Presidential hopefuls: Joe began touring the country, talking about the things he loves and believes will help our country. GOD, Patriotism, Respect, Honor, Courage; ideals that made America the best country in the world.
In 2008, my life changed when Barack Obama came into my front yard on a campaign stop. I asked him why he wanted to raise taxes, and he said that he wanted to “spread the wealth.” Since then, I have gained a national following as “Joe the Plumber” and now travel the country speaking and encouraging other everyday folks to get involved in the political process.

During the 2008 presidential campaign, the New York Times ran an article on what psychologists call the "impostor phenomenon." To measure it, they ask test subjects questions like, "At times, I feel my success has been due to some kind of luck" or "I can give the impression that I'm more competent than I really am." I submit that Mr Obama is .....THE GREAT IMPOSTER!
