Romney picks tonight’s Game 7 winner

Posted by  ▪  October 28, 2011
He’s staked out a position, and he’s not backing down. From @StevenErtlet:
 

George Will for President! (?)

Posted by  ▪  October 28, 2011
The title is facetious, of course, but nonetheless relevant in light of this “leak” of a portion of Will’s upcoming column which skewers Mitt Romney: Romney, supposedly the Republican most electable next November, is a recidivist  reviser of his principles who is not only becoming less electable, he might  damage GOP chances…

Say what you will about Peter Schiff

Posted by  ▪  October 28, 2011
but he totally wrecks Cornel West in this recent TV interview that I have deemed a must watch.  Once Cornel West makes a fortune off of reading the market, I’ll start listening to his explanations of crises. By the way, I’m fairly certain that everyone who pines for Glass-Steagall does not know what the hell…

Elizabeth Warren, the Al Gore of Occupy Wall Street

Posted by  ▪  October 28, 2011
Elizabeth Warren has stepped in it with her boast that she created the Occupy Wall Street movement: “I created much of the intellectual foundation for what they do,” she says. “I support what they do.” Warren’s boast was an overstatement much akin to Al Gore’s claim of credit for the internet, but even…

Heavy-handed Tweet of the Day

Posted by  ▪  October 28, 2011
Yes, this is the point, isn’t it?  It’s not just about big liberal government, it’s about big government. By way of example, it’s why I am against centralize federal tort reform; just because you like the result doesn’t mean you have to empower the federal government to get the result.  And going…

Beirut 1983

Posted by  ▪  October 28, 2011
This week in 1983 Iranian backed Shiites bombed the U.S. Marine barracks in Beirut, killing 299 Marines and French soldiers. The Marines had been sent as part of an international peacekeeping force in the wake of the Lebanese civil war.  Iranian-backed Shiites who later formed Hezbollah carried out the attack: Although no group…

Despair

Posted by  ▪  October 28, 2011
From Nile Gardiner at The Telegraph (h/t reader John): Instead of hope and change, the Obama presidency has delivered decline and despair on a scale not seen in America since the dying days of the Carter administration. Both at home and abroad, the United States is perceived to be a sinking power,…

To each according to this bumper sticker

Posted by  ▪  October 28, 2011
Thanks to frequent photographer Jason who writes: This one was parked at a hospital in Raleigh, NC. The sun was messing me up, so I had to get right up close to get the sticker on the right.

Aka Rep. Connie Mack (R-Florida) is going to run against Bill Nelson in the 2012 Florida Senate race: U.S. Rep. Connie Mack unexpectedly signaled late Wednesday that he will enter the Republican primary for U.S. Senate, apparently convinced other candidates cannot defeat Democratic Sen. Bill Nelson…. The other candidates are former state House Majority…

Sending precisely the wrong signal

Posted by  ▪  October 27, 2011
Whether Rick Perry ends up showing up at the debates or not, this sends precisely the wrong signal.  This is not May or June.  If you want the nomination, you show up to debates in November and December, without hesitation: After a series of poor debate performances in the early months of his…

WaPo – We’ll just act like our hit piece on Marco Rubio was true

Posted by  ▪  October 27, 2011
I will not repeat everything about how The Washington Post misstated Marco Rubio’s record in order to portray Rubio as having misrepresented how his parents came to the U.S. and whether they were exiles. But true to form, WaPo not only is not backing down, it’s doubling down by doing what the…

George Soros diversifies his portfolio of evil

Posted by  ▪  October 27, 2011
Apparently George Soros foot the bill of the Frank La Rue’s ‘research’ for the UN that concluded that the Internet is a “human right” subject to the same creeping legislation and special interests as every other ‘right.’ Advocates of net neutrality, a position championed by the billionaire Soros and by the U.N.,…

When this bubble bursts

They will not have China to bail them out: For so long we have heard nothing but how the Chinese were doing things right. Hundred of millions rising up out of poverty. News cars replacing bicycles on the streets of Beijing. An economy that could not be stopped, which grew…

Look who’s calling Obama “Nixonian”

Posted by  ▪  October 27, 2011
The editors of the San Francisco Chronicle: The Obama White House’s restrictions on media access to its fundraising  events makes a mockery of its claim to be the most transparent administration in  history. If anything, there is almost a Nixonian quality to the level of control,  paranoia – and lack of credibility -…

Open – California Dreaming

Posted by  ▪  October 26, 2011
This California time zone is messing with my head.  I think I’ll walk into the desert, sit with my legs folded and palms raised towards the sky, and watch the sunset. A couple of things I noticed: A long-range rocket already has been fired from Gaza at an Israeli city.  The Shalit deal…
