With Israel on the cusp of a major conflict in Gaza and maybe beyond, pay a visit to and say a prayer for our blog friends in Israel, who are updating the events:

Total nonfarm payroll employment increased by 171,000 in October, and the unemployment rate was essentially unchanged at 7.9 percent, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reported today. Employment rose in professional and business services, health care, and retail trade.

Both the unemployment rate (7.9 percent) and the number...

Best Tweets of the Presidential Town Hall Debate

Obama was much more animated, and I’m sure liberals on Twitter and elsewhere were happy much as during the Biden-Ryan debate. But I don’t think it helped Obama much. I’ll be interested to see the focus groups and polling.

Obama got in some one liners, but Romney completely nailed it...

Assessment — Not sure how to rate this. I wonder how Biden’s constant laughing, smirks, and bombastic language (“bunch of malarkey”) played with the viewers.

Biden also talked over Ryan constantly, and the moderator often cut short Ryan’s answers. Ryan also didn’t get a chance to respond to many of...

Cherokee genealogist Twila Barnes, whose group of researchers has done more than anyone to document Elizabeth Warren’s false claims to be Cherokee, was incensed at Warren’s continued insistence that she is Native American:

Let  me make one thing clear. Your Native American issue has not been put to rest.

There is no question that Scott Brown won the debate last night.

It wasn’t a knock out.  As Howie Carr correctly notes, a man can’t get away with hitting a woman too hard in a debate:

When he was pummeling her on the asbestos litigation, and her $225,000 payday, and on the $700,000...

Julia reacts to Mitt’s tape

You remember Julia, the Obama campaign-issued woman who turned to government for help at various life stages. 

Those stages aptly were summarized in Iowahawk’s Julia’s Circle of Life.

Julia has come to symbolize the dependency state.  So I wondered what Julia must be thinking about Mitt Romney’s secret video about people taking responsibility...

Fantasy v. Reality

There has been a complete lack of reality this week in our government and media.

Words are not deeds.  This is especially important to remember if you’re the President of the United States who has essentially talked himself into office.

Behold a paragraph from President Obama’s stirring acceptance speech at the convention:

Egyptian protesters on Tuesday took down the American flag from the walls of the US embassy in Cairo during a thousands-strong demonstration held to protest a short film produced by US based Coptic-Christians that critics say demeans Islam and the Prophet Mohammed.

I have enjoyed Larry Sabato’s coverage of elections both past and present, and his “Crystal Ball” reports are worth reading.

So I mean no disrespect by this.

It’s just that this tweet from Geoffrey Skelley of the Sabato Crystal Ball report seemed like it deserved an award for its obviousness:

Looks like Clint Eastwood got under Obama’s skin.

Obama sent this tweet today in response to Eastwood mocking Obama last night by using an empty chair as a prop (via The Rhetorican):

While I was very uncertain whether the Eastwood appearance worked, I now believe it did.

If it didn’t, Obama would not have felt the...
