Pay No Attention to those national polls! Were winning. Well maybe not
Our weak President gets instructions from Egypt
You didnt build that favorite
“We should all be very glad that we have a Democratic president right now; otherwise the news would be terrible. We would be seeing a rash of horrible and depressing stories in the newspapers about strategic failure, with unremitting second guessing and belittling of a president who agonized for months before the surge and then saw his plan fail. We’d be hearing non-stop reports in the media about the incompetent and klutzy leader who torpedoed his own policy by announcing a withdrawal date; the man who tried to please everybody and do everything—and failed at all he tried.”
Ain’t THAT the truth!
Nah no cover up. FBI cant get to Libya to investigate yet CNN is able to get there and walk off with stuff from the scene. Thats the story here not misuse of the diary
So, now an interview of Romney, by Scott Pellet, is going to be telecast on 60 Minutes this Sunday.
Please!!! Somebody tell me I’m naive, or stupid, or an alarmist, or all three! Because I’m beginning to get whip-lash from shaking my head over Romney. It’s as though he’s becoming the “Biden” of the Reupblican ticket. Why, when he’s demonstarted this sort of thing is a weak suit for him would he consent? Somebody? Anybody?
Interesting video on proving media bias from “Prager University” featuring Tim Groseclose. On the 5 minute video Prof. Groseclose describes the political beliefs of the average U.S. citizen and how the media influences those beliefs. http://www.prageruniversity.com/Political-Science/Proving-Media-Bias.html

Threatening the freedoms of our citizens is the same as threatening our country.
Chuckie Schumer claims that friendly Republicans have told him that they will completely capitulate to Obama if Obama wins the election. Supposedly the RINOs will be kicking out the tea-party Republicans from all decision-making, and fold like cheap suits to the Empty Suit.
This comes from liberal website TPM so don’t know how trustworthy this is, or if this is just a Democratic fantasy combined with psy-ops:
“Mainstream Republicans have confided in Sen. Chuck Schumer that they intend to regain control of the GOP from the tea party wing if Mitt Romney loses the election, the New York Democrat told reporters Thursday.”
Angry words flared in my mind as I went to click the link, but I came to a screeching halt with this thought:
If in the middle of a presidential campaign we take Chuck Schumer’s demoralizing distraction seriously, we are suckers.
Every moment of distraction from Obama’s record is a successful moment for the Democrats. Chuck Schumer knows that. I trust we do too.
That is pretty cool. Read the whole thing.
For those of us more sarcastically inclined

Talking Points Memo: Harry Reid Condemns Mitt Romney’s ‘Creative Accounting’
As if curent events arent bad enough
Find fault with this Harry Reid. Via weekly standard
•In 2011, the Romneys paid $1,935,708 in taxes on $13,696,951 in mostly investment income.
•The Romneys’ effective tax rate for 2011 was 14.1%.
•The Romneys donated $4,020,772 to charity in 2011, amounting to nearly 30% of their income.
•The Romneys claimed a deduction for $2.25 million of those charitable contributions.
•The Romneys’ generous charitable donations in 2011 would have significantly reduced their tax obligation for the year. The Romneys thus limited their deduction of charitable contributions to conform to the Governor’s statement in August, based upon the January estimate of income, that he paid at least 13% in income taxes in each of the last 10 years.
Link to that info
You know what the interesting thing is about the Romneys charitable contributions?
All they had to do was to give their required 10 percent, to their church. (The tithe is pretty much law among the LDS.) The rest was optional. Yet they gave 30 percent. 30 percent. The Obamas and the Bidens charitable contributions are dwarfed significantly with this. Think about that for a minute.
In other words, the Romneys gave ’till it hurt.
The Obamas and the Bidens din’t give much, but made sure they hurt everyone else.
And, uh, “George Obama”…
Yeah what a contrast.
And yet the left finds some fault. They reason by limiting the contributions deducted he forced a rate in line with previous statements. Absurd.
And funny..look at Memorandum site and see all the media ganged up like feeding fish.
Beats finding out why national security failure left 4 dead in Libya.
Just as I said, Romney’s charitable contributions definitely were bigger than anything The One and Co. gave.
Or more bluntly..he gave away more than the two of them earned.
But Romney is stupid accrording to media. LOL
I’d really like to see a #spanishsmackdown trending for the Univision interviews. It really should get bigger before the media smothers it or spins it.
#Ganador – winner
#Perdedor – loser
#verdad – truth
In the end it’s been such a good week for Mitt. An attempt to spin a foreign disaster into a Mitt faux pas; despicable. A malevolent tape released showing mitt using logic; pathetic. Meanwhile the Native, trophy ideologue gets handled on tv, the Arabic world burns down Obama’s foreign policy, and Obama decides not not meet with Netanyahu to interview a fake pirate and go to a Jay-Z party with hundreds of thousands of dollars in gold champagne bottles. #MittGanador ?
#doloroso/dolorosa – painful.

Senate races: Rasmussen poll now shows Tammy Baldwin (D) 3 points ahead of Tommy Thompson (R) in Wisconsin. Ann Althouse has a post on it. Thompson had been 12 points ahead a few weeks ago. Althouse said Baldwin has been running lots of negative ads against Thompson that have not been answered. Apparently, Thompson doesn’t have big bucks for his campaign. This had looked like an R pickup, but if these polls are accurate, the D’s could hang onto it. (Herb Kohl is retiring, a D.)
Thompson had been very popular as a 4-term governor, but that was back in the 1990s. Voters are like baseball fans, “What have you done for me lately?” They don’t care about past glories much.
The Baldwin ads are effective. They show Thompson collecting big bucks as a lobbyist in DC after his stint in the Bush administration as HHS secretary. Plus have some quotes from him that are pretty bad.
I hope someone deep pockets R supporters pony up some funds for Thompson. The last thing we need is a Far Side Left Extremist from Madison in the Senate. She’d make Barbara Boxer look centrist.

Well, we know who rules over Obamic foreign policy…
A question I have: now that it has collapsed, who will be the scape-goat he uses?
Hey Professor J and photoshop admin Patricia, I just did an edit of the Libya bloody handprints image with the new “our stripes” O-merica logo:
Please feel free to share it… liberally 🙂
Perfectly said! Making him, my new idol (just hope he lasts the week)
Heh! Rick Perry just KILLLLLLLLED that whole meme.
I was wondering why some lawyer has not picked up on the issue of the 0bama “flag” and the illegality of it, as stated in US law, to wit:
CHAPTER 1 – THE FLAG
§ 3. Use of flag for advertising purposes; mutilation of flag
Any person who, within the District of Columbia, in any manner, for exhibition or display, shall place or cause to be placed any word, figure, mark, picture, design, drawing, or any advertisement of any nature upon any flag, standard, colors, or ensign of the United States of America; or shall expose or cause to be exposed to public view any such flag, standard, colors, or ensign upon which shall have been printed, painted, or otherwise placed, or to which shall be attached, appended, affixed, or annexed any word, figure, mark, picture, design, or drawing, or any advertisement of any nature; or who, within the District of Columbia, shall manufacture, sell, expose for sale, or to public view, or give away or have in possession for sale, or to be given away or for use for any purpose, any article or substance being an article of merchandise, or a receptacle for merchandise or article or thing for carrying or transporting merchandise, upon which shall have been printed, painted, attached, or otherwise placed a representation of any such flag, standard, colors, or ensign, to advertise, call attention to, decorate, mark, or distinguish the article or substance on which so placed shall be deemed guilty of a misdemeanor and shall be punished by a fine not exceeding $100 or by imprisonment for not more than thirty days, or both, in the discretion of the court. The words ‘flag, standard, colors, or ensign’, as used herein, shall include any flag, standard, colors, ensign, or any picture or representation of either, or of any part or parts of either, made of any substance or represented on any substance, of any size evidently purporting to be either of said flag, standard, colors, or ensign of the United States of America or a picture or a representation of either, upon which shall be shown the colors, the stars and the stripes, in any number of either thereof, or of any part or parts of either, by which the average person seeing the same without deliberation may believe the same to represent the flag, colors, standard, or ensign of the United States of America.
Absentee voting in person begins tomorrow in Virginia. I qualify because I’m poll watching on election day. Is there any reason not to go vote first thing in the morning? Looking for input.
…we are now spending 70K on TV ads in Pakistan to apologize…
US Drops $70,000 On TV Ads In Pakistan
The US State Department is paying $70,000 to run a television ad in Pakistan. The ad consists of sound bites from statements made by President Barack Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton following the death of US Ambassador to Libya Chris Stevens.
The clips are reiterations by the President and Mrs. Clinton that the United States government had no involvement in creating and producing the film anti-Islam film that sparked riots, unrest, attacks, and the death of Ambassador Stevens in Benghazi, Libya last week.
The statements are unaltered clips of the President and Secretary Clinton, but they are subtitled in Urdu, the predominant language in Pakistan.
Victoria Nuland, a State Department spokeswoman, told reporters that the intent of this commercial is to get the message to the largest possible audience in Pakistan. Pakistan is being targeted due to the swarm of protesters that attempted to attack the US Embassy last week, but were deterred by Pakistani police forces.
“The sense was that this particular aspect of the president and the secretary’s message needed to be heard by more Pakistanis than had heard, and that this was an effective way to get that message out,” Ms. Nuland said in Washington.
The ad will air on seven networks inside Pakistan, which have an estimated audience of 90 million people. Nuland added that these ads will not air in other countries.
I wonder if our inept leaders..in their hurry to apologize realize the particular video has been blocked for 3 days in Pakistan.
I guess the interpreters didn’t get the memo in time…!
I just dont get the lack of outrage. See my previous posts about Pakistan.
Here we go again with TV ads in the area not condeming embassy attacks but rather the defensive posturing on the silly video.
The administration once again has shown itself to be defensive and weak
Good. Powerline guys saw the mess
Spreading the “Love” (Mia Love):
Professor this is a YouTube video that needs to go viral.
Do any of you remember the commerical (who knows what they were selling – I don’t) wherein a lady says, “Ah, you’re going to have a baby. Have a pickle!”?
Well, the 2012 version is something along the lines, “Ah, you’re going to have a baby. Have $50,000 in debt!”. Then, a narrator says, “No, Obama isn’t reponsible for it all, just most it. And, and, there’s more to come! So, do you still think he ought to have a second term?”.
