Speaking of which, one should be careful not to confuse "moil" with "mohel".

The economy’s lapsed into moil
As unemployment continues to spoil
Barack’s re-up odds
High praise to the gods
And ex-supporters, who flinch and recoil

Does the term moil spread from the top down, or from the bottom up?

Looks like poor lil Cory Booker is NOT going to be in the second Obama term, either.

Despite months of moil and millions of dollars spent, nothing has changed in Wisconsin government. Walker is still Governor, Kleefisch is still Lt. Governor, and our State Senators are still in office. One cloud is that one Senator is on the verge of defeat, but a new election looms in November with Republicans favored to gain 3 seats. What has changed is that both sides of the electorate are energized and have hardened in their views.

You have been at ground zero in the battle to bring our country back from the brink for months now. I don’t know how you stand up to all that pressure. WI has withstood it all though. Just a few more months till Nov, hang in there.

The Democrats spared themselves the moil of a Congressional campaign in Los Angeles this fall as both candidates on the ballot will be Republicans.

Liberals always fail to see the unexpected consequences.

Also, they’ll waste a ton of money all the way to November on two races that are safe D seats because the top two are both incumbent dems who have been redistricted together. A partisan primary would have ended these fights but now they roll until November. Soaking up resources that could have gone to fight real races.

I got into some trouble this morning, phone calls from my doctor’s office. I have to head out of town for the rest of the day. Will check in on class when I can from my Nook. Stay sane, stay out of trouble....you can grade each other’s homework if you want. That ought to keep you entertained.

I was posting from my phone and hit the wrong key - hate when that happens!

In concert with that, read this, between the lines.

Coupled with top Senate Dems going after the Administration on Security Leaks, It's time to start stocking up on party favors for Election Night.

There is no more split in the Democrat party. The Clintons have won, and they're cutting this guy loose.

Every Anti-Romney argument he tries to make, will get about a week, before some well connected party man makes a 'gaffe' to undercut it.

Yes. This Cory Booker guy has a future.

Other Democrats that want to have a future will distance themselves from Barry too.

As Ace would say over at Ace of Spades HQ blog “it’s time to stock up on pudding”

If I’ll Have Another wins tomorrow that’ll be another bad omen for Obama. First Triple Crown winner since Carter.

Dave,

I think it would also be great for the sport to have a Triple Crown winner. It’s been 34 years.

Hobbes,

A little over confident as it is only June. Of course it is one cold June for the Pres__ent

Stay safe!

Bill Clinton’s reputation
Is something Obama forgot-
And no, not about pursuing
Any female he thinks is hot

Its about his never forgetting
A damaging word or bad turn-
How he can moil every word
And cause his enemies to burn

Obama foolishly invited him in
And Clinton went full throttle-
Obama’s minions don’t know how
To return the genie to his bottle...

Julius Caesar was the tragedy.

This is the Comedy.

This level of betrayal by the party of a siting President, is unprecedented.

And that sort of thing is not happenstance.

The next thing to watch for, is his funding drying up.
