The proposed designs depict either Obama or Romney with accompanying pictures and a slogan. President Obama was the first to be lauded in this…

Elizabeth Warren’s credit card fundraising problem

Posted by
10/15/2012 at 2:18pm
Elizabeth Warren raised $12.1 million in the third quarter, compared to $7.45 million for Scott Brown.  It is not yet known how much cash on hand Warren has, but Brown has $10.2 million. There is a problem, though.  Warren uses credit card portals which do not have security features, as explained by…

Forbes, CNN destroy Obama administration’s Benghazi lie

Posted by

Forbes contributor, Larry Bell, released an article late last night entitled, “Pants On Fire: Obama Administration Scrambles for Cover as Benghazi Lie Explodes.” The article, drawing on reports from CNN, reveals a picture the Obama administration is desperately trying to sweep under the rug. President Obama’s foreign policy is an absolute disaster. Moreover, the…

Candy?

It’s really hard for the Commission on Presidential Debates to find truly neutral moderators, because of how neutral is perceived. If the moderator were from Fox News, even if a non-ideological news person like Bret Baier, there would be howls of protest from the Obama campaign and the media. Yet Candy Crowley is…

Who Likes Obama?

For months we’ve read poll results about how much more likable President Obama is than Mitt Romney. I don’t believe them, and the reason I don’t is that for three years I’ve heard people preface their disagreements with Obama’s policies by saying, “I really like and respect him, but…” Why qualify the…

From Steve: Found along I-43 in the Town of Wilson, Wisconsin, just a couple miles south of the Sheboygan/Sheboygan Falls/Kohler Megalopolis. Sorry the resolution isn’t better. Camera phone. From Larry in Florida: Got a good look at this billboard on the way to lunch in Aventura, FL and had to snap a picture just for…

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

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
10/14/2012 at 2:30pm
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

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…

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…

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
10/13/2012 at 8:09pm
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
10/13/2012 at 3:55pm
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…
