The Sunday Morning Bray, by Bray!
King Herod heard about this, for Jesus name had become well known. Some were sayng, John the Baptist has been raised from the dead, and that is why miraculous powers are at work in him. Mark 6:14
So now the commie libs are having to fake outrage about job outsourcing. Most of us understand libs like Ohbummer who never worked in the private sector, have no idea why jobs would leave America when he is running them out. It is the same reason jobs are leaving the Soviet paradise of Chicago for Indiana, WI and Ohio, to lower their tax bill and increase their profits. When you have the highest tax, regulation and labor rates in the world businesses have no choice but to leave and most congratulate their CEOs for keeping their businesses alive and flourishing.
How a President can point to a businessman for downsizing companies after what he did to the Gulf and the 10,000 high paying jobs there forcing them to Brazil, Mexico, Russia, Venezuela and China and ignoring the courts yet still accuse Bain of the same thing is unfathonable. The gummit has forced millions of good jobs out of America for no other reason than they are industries like Oil, Coal, Forestry, Auto, Steel, Farming, Fishing, Mining, Banks, Insurance or any other capitalistic enterprise they despise and need elimination. This has not only destroyed entire industries through overregulation and taxation the companies have no other choice but to leave the country and then these libs feign outrage for lost jobs. Ax Boeing and NC about lost jobs by this gummit. We understand he has to minimize Romneys business experience for fear he may talk about balance sheets or income statements making OBs eyes glaze over.
The examples are endless but our latest example is the destruction of the banking industry through Dodd/Frank. This will not only destroy the small independent banks but makes it near impossible to qualify for a mortgage. The average length of time for a mortgage if you are a very well qualified home buyer is in the neighborhood of 6 months from start to finish. If you are attempting new construction they are not only checking your credit but the credit of your builder and anyone involved in the building process. This is if you can get a permit in the first place but the gummit has made it so difficult on the banks to give loans by basically underwriting every loan in America from DC that most give up through the qualification inquisition.
If you could find two less qualified corrupt politicians in Congress than Chris Country Wide Dodd and Barney Fannie Mae Frank you would have to dig pretty deep. They were both on the take from mortgage banks with Dodd getting special mortgage rates and closing costs and Frank getting campaign donations as well as his live in husband from Fannie Mae. They have written a bill which is costing banks millions as they collect hidden taxes in user fees that will make loans and checking more expensive and stop banks from loaning money the way they would like. This will cause the public to get angrier at the banks in preparation for a complete takeover by DC. Just like when they took over the Student Loan program making them more expensive to the student who will have a higher default rate being put on the backs of the taxpayers, so too will the eventual destruction of our banking system by Congress.
We saw the same massive destruction of the textile industry twenty years ago. This was a high labor and low margin business which was destroyed by the gummit directly. With their excessive regulation of textiles as well as Workmans Comp and Minimum Wage they forced the entire industry to close down and move to Asia where those laws dont exist. By raising the wages and manufacturing costs of both labor and cotton production we saw an entire thriving industry which was one of the cornerstones of the South just disappear thanks to our gummit.
The gummit did the same thing to the furniture industry in the Carolinas so now we grow some of the finest hardwood trees in the world which are sold as logs to China and Europe then cut up into parts for their furniture industries and shipped back here as furniture. We have taken some of the finest furniture companies in the world like Broyhill and turned their factories into empty shells to be turned into distressed floors for the Upper East Side. No matter how many jobs Bain outsourced to other Countries in the Global economy, they were a drop in the bucket compared to the Democrat Party. If you were to take Texas and Wisconsin out of the mix, Romney has likely created more private sector jobs in his career than Obama has as President.
What did Bain Capital do? They were simply providing a service for desperate companies which were being destroyed by the DNC extremists who are at war with American industries. When a company that has been a strong employer for a hundred years is targeted by the Feds so they cant make a profit they have to look at all the options including other countries. When you find countries like China which has a much lower corporate and income tax than the US as well as slave labor costs and huge subsidies while knowing if you stay here you go bankrupt, what choice do you have?
This is another example of the free market having to adapt to an overreaching gummit and then getting blamed for some imagined crime by that same overreaching gummit. Just like the oil industry which has been denied drilling in the safest most productive areas by the enviro-commies are forced out into the deepest and riskiest reserves and when the inevitable finally happens are punished for what the politicians caused. You can take any problem real or imagined and find our gummit at the root of the problem. These power hungry Central Planners will take a problem, real or imagined; claim to try to fix it rather than letting the free markets ingenuity solve it and then make it worse requiring a Blue Ribbon Committee to come in and destroy it like ObamaCare. This has been repeated throughout our lives and economy to the point we are at now so no industries can afford to do business in America let alone start one.
Until we outsource the DNC starting with Ohbummer and his minions in the Stone Age Press we are doomed to having our jobs sent overseas. Until we address the issues of the EPA, Dept of Labor, Ag, the DOT, IRS and every other alphabet in DC we are doomed to be slaves searching for scraps from the Masters table. The Beltway is the 1% that enslaves the 99% through ridiculous regs and taxes from Power Plants to Water Regs they are starving us under the guise of protection. It is time to take off our shackles and become Free Slaves which begins in about 140 days. Lets make 2013 the real end to slavery and let that emancipation be Freedom from the DC Plantation. Let every decision in every hall of that swamp be, does this make America and Americans more Free or Less Free. If it is Less Free, close it, overturn it or burn it. When that criterion becomes the rule, American industry will rule the world.
Pray for America
Note: The above opinion is not necessarily mine, but FReeper Brays. If you wish to discuss this, please ping Bray.
Gonna be a hot one here.
Thanks for the ping and the thread AB.
Heading to the beach. Will DVR Fox Sunday and de-Face the Nation.
Their side is dirty as sin. But, its all about messaging. Getting ours out is a lot harder than the free passes they keep getting from the drivebys. That's why the New Media is ever so important.
My local provider in Orlando has taken Fox News Sunday off...has that happened to anyone else?

Very good analysis, bray. You've identified many of the problems in America, and most of them come from the crime and corruption endemic in the Beltway. If King George III were alive today, he would be green with envy!
FNS is shown on the regular Fox Network channel. The one that has the Simpsons and Family guy on it. Those are some very p[opular shows, making their sponsors a lot of money. They didn’t take the Fox Network off their list, did they?
That would be channels 35 and 51 there in your area (Lake Mary specifically)...
If they’re not showing FNS, what are they showing instead?
I know. It’s Good Day Sunday from 8Am to 10AM...
they moved it to 10AM...ugh. Guess I’ll have to catch it later in the day.
Thanks for thread AB. Mitt has to get off the canvas. The ref is counting him out. Where’s that vim & vigor he used on Perry? Newt? Paul? Cain? Santorum?
They were pubbies. mitt is a liberal.
Report from FOX “News”
Brit Hume constantly pimps the STATIST and Obama platforms,
and rudely keeps interrupting the real conservative Gov Terry Branstad, R-Iowa.
Hume finally cuts him off and shift to Gov. Rick Scott, R-Fla.,
Gov. Scott agrees with Gov. Branstad.
Statist and pro-RomneyCARE/DeathPanels Brit Hume cannot handle it.
Gov Terry Branstad cannot get a sentence out without being
interrupted by the Hume RomneyBOT (who clearly has a STATIST agenda).
Right now, Obama is being forced to run negative, and that hurts his popularity numbers, which is really all he has gong for him.
I do believe Romney is going to fight back, and VERY hard, but for now, is keeping his powder dry.
Seriously, how many people are going to be influenced by a heavy-hitting Summer campaign? Not us, we're already decided here (both for and against Romney!). Not with zombie dems and Leftists; they're stuck with Obama.
The vast unwashed will not start following this until the Fall. In the meantime, I do believe people are getting fed up with Obama and his war against the American economy. I hear it everywhere I go. In 2008, he was a phenomenon. Today, the same people who were praising him are slamming him.
I think the campaign hasn't even begun.
I believe Hume led with a discussion of welfare reform, according to Twitter. It comes on later here and I usually just wait to see it on the cable channel.
I see I am going to haveto make sure I watch it because I am pretty sure that Hume is not a Romneybot, as you call him.
Of course, since I was always called a Bushbot, my interpretation won’t suit you. As yours doesn’t suit me.
Somewhat agree, though I think his campaigning is reaching folks that might not otherwise have an interest at this time, but life has become unbearably miserable for many working poor with fewer options these last 4 years.
Romney could also learn more about criticized the media shilling for Democrats from Newt.
Newt Gingrich blames the press for not reporting how the economy works.
Government just can’t tax and spend enough to solve the Democrat/Keynesian Liquidity problem, and then create enough jobs too...
Gov. Scott: We can’t afford it! [re: Medicaid expansion]
Lib Response: Use a credit card. Tax the rich. Raise tobacco tax.
[Govt programs never look at the results or impact. The intent of a program looked good on paper, so that is all that matters. As Gov. Scott said, when the FED runs out of money for the program expansion, they will dump the responsibility (and funding) onto the states.]
My guess is that Romney is saving a lot of his firepower until closer to the convention and the announcement of a VP which will be huge.He’s between a rock and a hard place. If he comments on anything the DBM will twist and turn it upside down. My take is that we help him as much a possible right here and on talk radio starting with Rush.
Romney needs to get his head and organization back in the game and get on offense. He has a target rich environment but is allowing himself to be painted and framed by the aggressive Democrat lies.
If he doesn't and is knocked out early, is it too much to ask the cringing GOP Establishment wise up and allow an open floor vote at the GOP Convention? After all, Romney hasn't been officially picked yet and none of the other candidates have "quit". They just suspended their campaigns.
Why go into the final stretch with a thoroughly crippled horse who is sure to lose? It would be a masterstroke to change candidates at the last minute and go on the attack! The Dems would be left holding their deflated Romney bag and our base would be energized!
You hit it Tom. The election should be about runaway/reckless spending that will, if it has not already, break the bank for us and our kids.
Brit Hume is acting like these phony polls are Gospel when every one has been proved completely wrong in election after election. When are they going to start dismissing them for what they are?
Excellent synopsis. Especially, when the left has nothing on our candidate and are just salivating to get something on him,anything, even if they have to lie and make it up.
Thanks for the report!
Is Hume interviewing today? Is Wallace off?
Great catch bray.Sad but true about polling.
They don’t straighten out until 72 hours before the election. Then those polling organizations who don’t want to be remembered as ozero shills start mysteriously getting it right. I think Rasmussen my be correct, not really sure.
My thoughts exactly. The polls are frequently “sample weighted” with more RATs being interviewed than anything else.
Karl Rove is hard to listen to. They act like being a Capitalist is a crime and needs to be defended. If they had any stones they would say Bain was a great company that reorganized some companies that became stronger and using overseas labor is common in a world economy.
Why does our side run away from every charge like we have to convince the Dems to vote for us and ignore the Conservatives?
No, he's there sitting right next to Brit.
WHY don’t the Republicans hit back with outsourcing Jeff Immelt of GE who got all the money from Obozo???
Brit Hume and Karl Rove defe nd Mr. RomneyCARE
on his BAIN misinformation by defending him.
Rove has his white board counting the “attacks” on Mr. RomneyCARE.
WHAT ABOUT OBAMA, you idiots?????
When is anyone in the GOP or GOPe going to
discuss his treason and malfeasance with substance?????
The other issue regarding Romney’s alleged “non control” of BAIN
was never brought up.
Joe Trippi points out that Team Romney was unprepared for this.
Hume says he “LEFT the company” in 1999, but ignores both the lack of preparation
and Mr. RomneyCARE’s obvious disingenuity.
Joe Trippi points out Mr. RomneyCARE is not responding,
but is “flat footed”.
For support of Mr. RomneyCARE, Hume shifts to Tokyo Rove the RINO.
Rove cites the Washington Post in support
of Mr. RomneyCARE without exact citation or source.
Rove says this is “Chicago politics”, attempting to strengthen
his lame defense of the defenseless absent loser.
Rove calls Obama “a cheap Chicago pol” but says nothing to support it.
He defends Mr. RomneyCARE because the defense of the indefensible
is not the main flag of the GOPe.
RINO Hume ends with pointing out that what is needed is a
new “Etch a Sketch” moment so that Obama won’t define
In other words, Bachmann, Cain, Gingrich, Palin, Perry and Santorum are all campaigning for Romney, but the drivebys aren't reporting what they say...
I think a lot of what we're getting frustrated about is due to the driveby media, not necessarily the campaign.
Nevertheless, I would love to see Obama get pummeled! There's so much ammunition—the TRUTH—would certainly hurt him. But I don't know if I'm not hearing it because Romney isn't saying it, vice the media simply being a megaphone for Obama and his crew while ignoring Mitt and his.
What do you all think?
when this comes up all they need to say,”Well, guess we aren’t asking why GE outsources, even after getting taxpayor money? Are you saying Jeff Immelt should be questioned too?”
At some point our side has to say they don’t believe the polls and have been weighted to help the Dems for so long they have no credibility. We have seen in elections they are generally off 10-15%.
Dems on welfare are the only ones who have time to answer them and Repubs don’t want to be identified due to vilification. How can you trust that kind of bias?
I think the campaign hasn’t even begun.
Karl Rove just made a good point about Romney’s messaging this summer. Paraphrase: if Romney puts out all of his plans now, by September it will be called “old news” and ignored.
I believe that Romney knows how to pace the release of “message” for maximum effect on potential voters.
Once again, thanks for reporting.
Interesting that the Fox Romney Allstars think he needs to be defended here. I expect to see something happen this week.
Mr. RomneyCARE lost most of the elections he
has run, and then he did NOT have the albatross
of DEATH PANELS or RomneyCARE, on his shoulders.
Maybe I’m just being a grump this morning, but Britt is annoying the heck out of me today ... attitude, interrupting, doesn’t seem prepared, mumbling & stumbling through his questions. Wallace has his issues, but at least he can enunciate.
Loved your ‘braying’ piece this morning. :-)
Meet the Press: How is Jealous gong to spin Romney's speech into racism?
Face the Nation: Ryan's comments are always interesting, as well as the angle of attack the democrat driveby’s put on him, says a lot as to what they're thinking...
This Week: Kelly Ayotte is considered a possible Romney VP candidate, will she say something in that regard?
State of the Union: Assholerod is probably going to continue the rich guy attack on Romney. Will CNN challange him? (LOL!)
I sort of thought Romney responded quickly and forcefully to the claims of his lying about leaving Bain as well as the outsourcing of jobs.
I also think Romney has an excellent quick response team and has used it effectively in response to all the attacks made against him.
What would you have him do specifically were you his campaign manager?
And your solution for the 2012 elections is? OH yeah, that’s right. All you have are complaints no answers.I think it might be time for your early bird don’t miss out!
Polling samples are often incredibly biased as well.
FNS Panel talks VP pick.
Same names, same chitchat.
Nothing earth shattering.
I’m depending on you guys today I gotta work.
Bachmann, Cain, Gingrich, Palin, Perry and Santorum are all campaigning for Romney, but the drivebys aren't reporting what they say... I think a lot of what we're getting frustrated about is due to the driveby media
We also need to accuse the RATagandists of having no credibility due to their failure to properly cover the Romney campaign.
Hey, he’s reporting on the shows... We may disagree with his conclusions, but Diogenesis has a right to be part of the Sunday thread. This is all we’ve ever asked, right? :-)
