The only thing The Empty Chair has ever had to offer is a penchant for magniloquent speeches.......which is an important quality for a Manchurian Candidate to have. Now we know what the Csars were for.......

Sorry I'm late, been sick maybe food poisoning not sure.....urghhh....

Hilda Solis' magniloquent outrage aside, it's time to answer some questions about this so-called jobs report.

The worst thing about Obama and Wright is that I can no longer assume in ignorance that the Black churches are part of the solution.

Good link. Hilda Solis is the only one in America who believes in the accuracy of the job numbers. Just like Susan Rice was the only one who believed the Benghazi murders were due to a video.

Today I am a 40 yo black dem woman voting dem for senate but voting Romney for president. I am oh so disillusioned such that I feel compelled to split the dang ticket : ). My brother is screwing with them similarly in Ohio, but only when we have reason to believe its a dem poll. Xshub got one last night that self identified as Obama volunteer and he gleefully told her we have five votes for governor Romney in this house.

I got a poll that was NYstateGOP, so I confirmed I was voting Rep in all four races. Romney, Long, Reed, Libous. I am confident Libous will win reelection. Not sure my state will pick the rest.
