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...
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:
Via Al Ahram English:
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.
A number of protesters managed to climb...
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:

All you need to know about the media reaction can be summed up in one word: JournoList.
Same players still, just in more influential positions. But that’s for another day, maybe even tomorrow.
Tonight I’m going to try not to let...
Can I call ‘em or what?
As news broke that a possible hurricane might disrupt the Republican National Convention, I predicted that Democrats would become religious quickly.
Not religious in terms of religion, but in terms of proclaiming that God was on their side for disrupting the RNC:
Dems who H8 religion will now...
Is anyone surprised? Crist’s only chance at rehabilitating a political career is a senior position in the second Obama administration.
Those of us of a certain age have the memories.
I was 10 years old at sleep away camp. I remember them bringing us into the rec hall to watch on the black and white televisions. I can’t tell you whether it was live or a replay, but they wanted us to...
Oooooh, Mitt Romney made a joke about his own birth certificate, and the MSM and nutroots go wild!
Ben Howe at Redstate has the details and video:
Some politicos are upset about a joke that Mitt Romney made today at President Obama’s expense.
Romney: “I love being home, where but the both of us...
For three bucks, you too can have dinner with Barack Obama. You may be the winner already!
But wait, there’s more.
You get to pay several hundred dollars in taxes!
But call within...

No one gets rich on his own.
In Obama’s case, Tony built it.
Romney helped a couple buy house? Big deal, so did Tony Rezko nytimes.com/2012/08/10/us/…

Given how Twitter can move an issue in minutes, Team Romney is smart to get more active.
John Nolte at Breitbart.com has some good advice, much...
