Will The Election Be Decided On October 26?

At 8:30 AM?

Gloomy forecasts from Goldman Sachs...
From James Pethokoukis's article:
Goldman Sachs is turning increasingly bearish on the U.S. economy, expecting the nation to have added only 125,000 new jobs in April, as the effects of a warm winter, which buoyed employment late last year, wear off.
The forecast is far lower than the Reuters estimate of 170,000, and the average 177,250 jobs created every month from December to March. According to a report by the bank’s Chief U.S. Economist Jan Hatzius, the jobs report will be a further sign of a weakening economy, where inventory accumulation has accelerated and final demand growth remains sluggish.
“Real income growth remains soft, partly because of higher energy prices, wealth effects are not yet particularly positive, consumer confidence remains modest, and again some of the recent strength in retail sales probably reflects weather effects,” Hatzius said.
And one strategist believes we will still be "back in the ditch"!
She said she agrees with Goldman economist Jan Hatzius’s forecast of the second half being more “difficult” than the first. “We have seen some deceleration in economic activity” after a mild winter that might have “puffed up” seasonal growth in the first quarter, she said.
I don't think we ever left the ditch. Obama and his cronies have just buried the car that much deeper. It will need a wrecker with a big winch to get this car back on the right road.

First There Were Phony Soldiers Now Its Phony Native Americans?

Good grief what is with liberals?
I didn't see any Native American look to Elizabeth Warren either.

Elizabeth Warren said she had no idea until she read the Herald today her Native American heritage was touted by Harvard Law School as proof of their faculty’s diversity in the 1990s — a fact her rival wants her to apologize for.
“I think I read it on the front page of the Herald,” Warren said when asked about the issue.
Sure you did Lizzy.
“I don’t even remember,” she added when asked about a 1996 Harvard Crimson article that quoted a then-law school spokesman touting her minority status. “You’re trying to raise something from 15 years ago.”
If I had a dollar for every lie, or lie by omission from a liberal I could have retired years ago.

Obama's "Unprecedented" Recovery

Unprecedented indeed!

The U.S. economy grew at a rate of 2.4 percent since the second half of 2009, which hardly represents a comeback, Stanford University economics professor Ed Lazear said Wednesday.
“The problem is, this is not a recovery at all,” he said on CNBC’s “The Kudlow Report.” “We haven’t made up for the lost ground, and that’s unprecedented.”
So what is a sitting President with less than 50% approval for 32 months to do?
Send in Turbo Tax Tim to attack Mitt Romney's economist Glen Hubbard as a hack of course.
Responding to a Hubbard op-ed in the Wall Street Journal — which calculated that the president’s spending plans would require an 11% tax increase on people earning less than $200,000 a year — Mr. Geithner said, “That’s a completely made-up, remarkably hackish observation for an economist.”
Hubbard a hack?
Besides running a highly respected Ivy League business school, he was the chairman of President George W. Bush’s council of economic advisors. He also earned his Ph.D. in economics from Harvard.
Those definitely sounds like a hackish credentials to me. The bottom line?
This recovery is "unprecedented"...
Weekly jobless claims in April are running 20,000 ahead of March. That might mean next week’s employment report will be another disappointment. And over the eleven quarters of the Obama recovery, real GDP has averaged only 2.4%. Compare that to the postwar average of 4.5%, and the tax-cutting Reagan recovery of 6.1%.
Obama, Geithner, Holder and as many liberals as possible need to be run from office in Nov. Our future depends on it.

Holder To Face Contempt Citation

Eric Holder will just make another claim of racism...

House Republicans investigating the Fast and Furious scandal have gotten the go-ahead by their party leaders to pursue a contempt citation against Attorney General Eric Holder, senior congressional aides told CBS News. The resolution will accuse Holder and his Justice Department of obstructing the congressional probe into the allegations that the government let thousands of weapons fall into the hands of Mexican drug cartels.
The citation would attempt to force Holder to turn over tens of thousands of pages documents related to the probe, which has entered its second year.
The man should have been fitted for a orange jumpsuit by now. You can bet Barry has his back.

The First Lady Of Mooching

The definition of mooch is to ask or obtain something without paying for it.
Mooch knows how its done...

Judicial Watch, the public interest group that investigates and fights government corruption, announced today that it obtained documents from the United States Air Force and the United States Secret Service detailing costs associated with Michelle Obama’s controversial August 2010 vacation to Spain. According to a Judicial Watch analysis, the records indicate a total combined cost of at least $467,585.
She got a vacation and she didn't pay for it. Fits the definition perfectly.
According to U.S. Department of Defense’s 2010 published hourly rates, the total cost of flying Michelle Obama and her guests from Camp Andrews to Malaga and then to Mallorca and back to the United States was $199,323.75. This is based on approximately 17 hours and 15 minutes of total flying time. The 15-member flight crew stayed at Tryp Guadalmar, a nearby motel. Lodging cost was $10,290.60 and car rental cost was $2,633.50. Food cost was $876.30, including $57.68 for four bottles of maple syrup and a package of pancake mix.
Smells Stinks as bad as just getting those student loans paid off a few years ago.

Lib Talker Randi Rhodes: Romney And Rubio Gay?

The freakshow from the left continues...

From The Radio Equalizer

Homoerotic? What next?

Eric Holder Sues Florida City

Attorney General Holder should just sue America and get his race war started.

The Justice Department sued the city of Jacksonville, Florida, on Monday, claiming its use of written tests to determine promotions in the city’s fire department discriminates against African-Americans.
Everything is race to this man.
The complaint by the Justice Department alleges the exams are “not job related for the positions in question.”
The complaint said use of the tests “has resulted in a disparate impact upon black candidates” because African-Americans pass the examinations at significantly lower rates than white candidates.
African-Americans can't pass written exams? Sounds like Holder is putting keeping his race down, not helping them.

68% Approve Of Az Imigration Law

68% is no small number.

The Supreme Court readies to hear the Obama administration’s case against Arizona’s strict immigration law, a new poll shows that Americans overwhelmingly support the law and believe the Supreme Court should uphold it.
A Quinnipiac University poll released Friday asked 2,577 registered voters nationwide whether they support Arizona’s immigration law, S.B. 1070, passed in 2010. Sixty-eight percent of respondents said they approved of the law while 27 percent said they disapproved of it. The poll question spelled out the provision of the law that “requires police to verify the legal status of someone they have already stopped or arrested if they suspect that the person is in the country illegally.”

Democrats Jumping Ship?

Who can blame them.

Toon via Sodahead
Politics: Perhaps Democrats know something the rest of us don't about Barack Obama's political fortunes. What else explains the increasing numbers who are openly defying the president on two key election issues?
Obamacare sound familiar?
Former Alabama Rep. Artur Davis went furthest. "I think the Affordable Care Act is the single least popular piece of major domestic legislation in the last 70 years," he said. "It was not popular when it passed; it's less popular now."
70 years? That left a mark.
Keystone is key to most of us, Obama not so much.
Obama may have thought he'd cleverly handled the issue by putting it off until next year, and that no one would think to defy his veto threats.
But when Republicans called his bluff with a bill to force a start on construction, 69 Democrats rushed to join them, giving the House bill a veto-proof majority. The Senate bill is just a vote or two away from overcoming a Democratic filibuster.
Veto-proof in the House? A few votes short in The Senate? Obama is about to get sent to the corner.
My gut says there is not a chance in hell Obama can be re-elected in November without massive voter fraud or some sort of shenanigan to stay in power. Martial law/race war/riots or something along those lines. All of which cannot be ruled out, especially with the Justice Dept. run with the creep in charge now.

Women Worry Me

If this poll is accurate they down right scare me.

President Obama holds a thin 46 percent to 42 percent lead over former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney in a Quinnipiac University national poll released Thursday, even as voters give the Republican a major edge on such key issues as the economy, jobs and gas prices.
The president has a 10-point edge with women voters, 49 percent to 39 percent. But Mr. Romney is viewed as better on a number of pocketbook issues that both sides agree could be critical come November. Voters disapprove of Mr. Obama's handling on the economy by 56 percent to 38 percent.
There must be a blonde joke here somewhere...

More Allen West

Allen West better be on Mitt's shortlist...

Rep. Allen West (R-Fla.) on Thursday maintained that the “the strategy, the tactics, the ideology” of progressive caucus members in Congress are the same as that of the Communist Party.
“I’m just talking about the fact of the ideologies, the principles you believe in,” he said on CNN, urging others to “stand upon truth” and learn to identify the ideological motivations of members of Congress. “I’m calling it this: communist, progressive, Marxist, socialist, statist.”
Spot on.

The Last Ball Has Dropped

RIP Dick Clark.

Dick Clark, the music industry maverick, longtime TV host and powerhouse producer who changed the way we listened to pop music with "American Bandstand," and whose trademark "Rockin' Eve" became a fixture of New Year's celebrations, died today at the age of 82.
I grew up with "American Bandstand" and "New Years Rockin' Eve". I can't remember how many New Years Eve Balls in Times Square I have watched with Mr. Clark.
Peace be with you...

To frigging funny.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) cited seniors’ love of junk mail in urging passage of a United States Postal Service reform bill.
“And when talking about seniors, seniors love getting junk mail. It’s sometimes their only way of communicating or feeling like they’re part of the real world,” Reid continued. “Elderly Americans, more than anyone in America, rely on the United States Postal Service, but unless we act quickly, thousands of post offices … will close. I’ve said this earlier today; I repeat it.”
I didn't realize how much I looked forward to getting my junk mail every day, so I can communicate and feel a part of the real world either.
One too many left hooks land on your skull Harry?
I don't look forward to becoming a senile, bitter old man with no grip on reality like Harry though.

Blowing In The Wind

Taxpayer money and JOBS!

A recent lengthy report by Reuters confirms what many conservatives have long known: President Obama's promise to create millions of so-called "green jobs" has been a colossal and expensive failure.
1)  Since 2009, the wind industry has lost 10,000 jobs, even as the energy capacity of wind farms has almost doubled.  By contrast, the oil and gas industry have created 75,000 jobs since Mr. Obama took office.
I would be willing to bet those 75,000 oil and gas jobs are right here in North Dakota in the Bakken oilfield.
Obama and the EPA had zero, zip, nada to do with that growth. In fact if they had their way fracking would be outlawed and this boom would be bust too, much like every thing this President has touched...

Most Federal Taxes Are Paid By Those Earning Over $50,000 A Year

According to statistics compiled from the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) by the Tax Foundation, those people making above $50,000 had an effective tax rate of 14.1 percent, and carried 93.3 percent of the total tax burden.
In contrast, Americans making less than $50,000 had an effective tax rate of 3.5 percent and their total share of the tax burden was just 6.7 percent.
The wealthy don't pay their share?
Americans making more than $250,000 had an effective tax rate of 23.4 percent and their total share of the tax burden was 45.7 percent.
One more time...We do not have a revenue problem, we have a spending problem. That problem's name is Barack Obama, vote accordingly Nov. 6 2012.

Huge Majority Favor Voter ID Laws

Eric Holder hardest hit.
There is absolutely nothing discriminatory about voter ID laws. 

Despite his insistence that voter fraud is not a serious problem, Attorney General Eric Holder was embarrassed last week when a video surfaced of someone illegally obtaining a ballot to vote under Holder’s name in his home precinct in Washington, D.C. Most voters consider voter fraud a problem in America today and continue to overwhelmingly support laws requiring people to show photo identification before being allowed to vote.
Everyone should show ID to vote. Everyone.

The Chance To Get Ahead

3 1/2 years on the road Obama has us on has been enough David.

The choice in this election is between an economy that produces a growing middle class and that gives people a chance to get ahead and their kids a chance to get ahead, and an economy that continues down the road we’re on.
Put me in the get ahead crowd.
To steal a line from Maggie comparing the last administration:
Not all of it was good, but all of it was better. ALL OF IT.

Obama Has Been An Unmitigated Disaster

So says Dick Cheney.
I was born and raised in Casper WY and lived not far from the Cheney's (although I have never met any of them) so I may be a bit biased, but Cheney is good man and spot on.

Former Vice President Dick Cheney walked onstage without any assistance and spoke for an hour and 15 minutes without seeming to tire in his first public engagement since he underwent a heart transplant three weeks ago.
He sat in a plush chair throughout the long chat with daughter Liz Cheney but looked better, even, than during recent appearances where he has been gaunt and used a cane.
Cheney even threw in a couple of political plugs amid much reminiscing at the Wyoming Republican Party state convention in Cheyenne on Saturday.
He said presumptive Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney is going to do a "whale of a job." He said it's never been more important than now to defeat a sitting president and the Republican Party should unite behind Romney.
"He has been an unmitigated disaster to the country," Cheney said of President Barack Obama.
Cheney's heart transplant in Virginia on March 24 initially canceled his trip to the state party convention but he got last-minute medical clearance to go.
God bless you Mr. Cheney.

Democrats Stand Their Ground

Big irony alert.

From the article by Mr. Hawkins:

Amid Democrat attempts to use the Trayvon Martin shooting as a means to push for the repeal of Stand Your Ground laws, it’s been interesting to note how many Democrats have a past that includes support for them. 

For example, on April 2nd, I had a post on Big Government that highlighted how former Michigan Gov. Jennifer Granholm, a Democrat, used her Current TV show to lambaste Stand Your Ground laws, and to blame Republicans for the existence of such laws in the first place. However, as I showed, the dirty little secret is that Granholm signed Michigan’s Stand Your Ground bill into law in 2006.
They are liberal Democrats in the mold of Obama, everything  has a expiration date...
Now it’s been discovered that an even more prominent Democrat, Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano, signed Arizona’s Stand Your Ground bill into law while governor of that state in 2006. And it’s important to note that Napolitano didn’t sign the bill half-halfheartedly, rather, she even countered anti-gunners’ opposition in the signing.
Either they have memory problems or think the internet does.

Obama Has Been Under 50% Approval For 32 Months

Still underwater...

Obama's ratings suggest we are heading for a potentially very close race in November. For the past 32 months, the full month approval ratings for the president have been remarkably stable, holding to a very narrow range of 44 percent to 49 percent. People seem to have formed an opinion of the president, love him or hate him, and nothing can change their minds. Those who oppose the president tend to feel more strongly about it than those who support him.  
Romney is up 48% - 43% even with the MSM in full campaign mode for him.
In a hypothetical Election 2012 matchup, presumptive Republican nominee Mitt Romney earns 48% of the vote, while President Obama attracts 43% support. Data released on the first 14 days of April has shown Romney with an advantage five times, Obama with an edge four times and the candidates tied five times.

Add Napolitano To The List Of Liars

Janet Napolitano has joined the ranks of those who lied to Congress.

Picture from the genius of Sad Hill News
In her explosive new book Fast and Furious, Katie Pavlich makes the case that Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano not only failed to stop an operation that led to the death of one of her own, Border Agent Brian A. Terry, but she may have also lied to Congress in sworn testimony at a hearing held to find out what really happened.
Eric Holder and Janet Napolitano have a problem telling the truth. Much like the man they both work for.
The Sargent Schultz strategy of "I know nothing" isn't cutting it anymore. Its time to measure some orange jumpsuits for these thugs.
Pavlich makes a strong case that when people are finally charged with crimes, Napolitano will have to answer for her perjury to Congress.
“Let me tell you something about Janet,” another source said to the author. “Janet will be lucky not to go to prison.”
Prison will be fitting for these shysters.

This Poll Should Worry Obama

The only issue that will matter in Nov.

Voters now have more confidence in presumptive Republican nominee Mitt Romney than in President Obama when it comes to the economy, but on other major issues facing the nation, the two men continue to run nearly even.
The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey asks Likely U.S. Voters whom they trust more on five key issues, and when it comes to the economy, 49% say Romney versus 39% who trust the president more. Twelve percent (12%) are not sure.
Its not the race war he wants, or the imagined war on women, its the economy stupid.
