Elizabeth Warren obtained federal fee waivers despite high 6-figure income and 8-figure net worth

Posted by  ▪  October 14, 2012

Did not pay her “fair share,” obtained PACER fee waivers in at least 50 federal districts 2005-2012

Elizabeth Warren has built her progressive rock star image and her campaign by attacking the wealthy factory owners and others who supposedly do not pay their “fair share” and take advantage of loopholes to live off of infrastructure paid for by others. Yet Warren appears to be one of those people who takes…

Preview of Presidential Town Hall Debate

Posted by  ▪  October 14, 2012
The debate Tuesday night is a “town hall” style. While the prevailing wisdom is that this will help Obama, I’m not so sure.  While it will give Obama the chance to give hope and change type mini-speeches, it also gives Romney the chance to push the American capitalism versus European nanny government…

Dan Bongino — Beholden to no one but the voters

Posted by  ▪  October 14, 2012
In yet another solid interview, Dan Bongino outlines his vision for Washinton, D.C. The clip is less than 5 minutes, and I recommend watching it in its entirety, but I thought his response to the question of Obamacare was particularly good. Q. Is the Healthcare Reform Act the answer? A. It’s only the answer…

Taking Progress out of Progressive

Posted by  ▪  October 14, 2012
This has got to be the worst, most misguided initiative since Jim Crow—and if you’re a eugenicist, a Klansman, or just a garden-variety bigot, you’re popping champagne corks. The Florida State Board of Education passed a plan that sets goals for students in math and reading based upon their race. On Tuesday, the…

New Obama campaign slogan – “Things are going swimmingly”

Or as we could characterize it, Hope is not a strategy. From Patricia:
 

Our backs are against the wall

And that’s probably a good thing. From commenter Henry Hawkins: I’ve been riding around in my pick up truck for weeks with a camera on the seat hoping to spot a bumper sticker worthy of the LI series. Nothing even close. Then I remembered the back of my own truck. Two photos attached, taken 10/11/12…

Clint Eastwood at RNC – Biden a “grin with a body behind it”

Posted by  ▪  October 13, 2012
Clint Eastwood’s RNC speech was most memorable for the Empty Chair. But Eastwood also had Joey “Grins” Biden pegged precisely (h/t theduchessofkitty in the Tip Line): I didn’t pay much attention to that line in the speech, but man, was Clint on target. Everybody says, oh, there Joe goes again. But after his performance at the…

Can Mike McIntyre (NC-7) really claim to be “blue dog?”

Posted by  ▪  October 13, 2012
A recently released Associated Press article on the Operation Counterweight race between David Rouzer (R) and Mike McIntyre (D) has echoed a common assertion regarding Mike McIntyre’s political status. A member of his party’s conservative Blue Dog caucus, McIntyre casually quotes Scripture, rails against illegal immigrants, touts his votes against “Obamacare” and…

Spare the Rod, Spoil the World

Posted by  ▪  October 13, 2012
People who work in sales often rely on leads.  The better the source of the lead, the better the lead itself.  So when your lead comes from the President of the United States and his Secretary of State, you’d be foolish not to follow up and close that puppy. The leader of…

Liberal supporters of Elizabeth Warren, please remove the “Tolerance” bumper stickers from your cars

Posted by  ▪  October 13, 2012
Because one of the symbols is an Indian peace pipe. And you are supporting someone who falsely claimed to be Indian, and who used that false claim in the most cynical ways in her career. Every one of her claims to actual ancestry has been proven false.  Every one of them, including the…

The Fickle Finger of Blame

Posted by  ▪  October 12, 2012
I don’t have much to say about last night’s debate—other than to describe the image that came to mind every time Joe Biden smirked and laughed and interrupted and bullied.  It was the image of Obama, watching on TV, alternately pacing and standing still, hand over his eyes except for a…
