  • Gravity Hits The Obama Campaign [cracks in "inevitable" armor dries up "tribute" from businesses]

    Red State ^ | October 9, 2012 | Dan McLaughlin
    This is a must-read Sean Trende column on why Obama’s bandwagon strategy has demanded that he remain in the lead at every point in the campaign. I’ve been saying for months now that Obama’s fundraising in particular – and even moreso, his ability to deter Romney from raising money from business – was hugely dependent on convincing business interests that Obama’s regulators would still be calling the shots after the election and they should not feel safe about going all-in to be rid of him. This is also why Obama’s team has gone nuclear in its attacks on individual polls...

  • Pennsylvania, Michigan in Play for Romney

    A Conservative's Voice ^ | OCTOBER 9, 2012 | Eric S. Salomon
    Two post-debate polls show Mitt Romney closing the gap in Michigan. A poll conducted by WeAskAmerica from September 25th-September 27th showed President Obama leading Romney by 12 points. One week later, after the first debate, two polls show Romney within three points of the President in Michigan. Michigan is typically a Democratic stronghold because of its large concentration of union workers and the ethnic diversity of large cities like Detroit. Michigan also happens to be the birthplace of Governor Romney. Whether or not that will have an impact of voters is yet to be determined. In Pennsylvania, where again the...

    Superman: Dying For Our Sins? On a pop culture icon’s decreasing popularity Do you believe a man can fly? Once, they made us believe. In comic books, in cartoons, on film, on television, through radio they told the tales of, as Alan Moore put it, a perfect man who came from the sky and did only good. Like a modern myth he came from the frenzied imagination of not just two young men from New York, but from the cobbled together hopes and dreams and fears and sublimations of an entire generation of kids and adults, from every creator...

    The Testosterone Pit ^ | Oct 8, 2012 | Wolf Richter
    Spanish Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy has a singular problem for a governing politician: 84% of all voters have “little” or “no” confidence in him. Even 62% of the supporters of his own conservative People’s Party (PP) distrust him. The fate of Alfredo Perez Rubalcaba, leader of the opposition Spanish Socialist Workers’ Party (PSOE), is even worse: 90% of all voters distrust him, as do 77% of the supporters of his own party! Those are the two top figures of the two major political parties, and the utterly frustrated and disillusioned Spaniards are defenestrating them both.It has been a short...

  • Is President Obama Mentally Competent - the $5 T Gaffe?

    Lawrence Journal World ^ | October 8, 2012 | Reasonmclucus
    President Barack Obama's obsession with a mythical Mitt Romney $5 trillion tax cut raises serious questions about Obama's mental health. The federal government only receives about $1.2 trillion in total income taxes per year. There is no way a $5 trillion tax cut would be possible in the short term. Congress would have to almost eliminate the income tax to produce a $5 trillion cut in 5 years. Cutting $500 billion a year would take 10 years to produce a $5 trillion cut. Cutting $250 billion a year would take 20 years to produce $5 trillion in cuts. I considered...

    Hot Air ^ | October 9, 2012 | Allahpundit
    Deeply embarrassing, but not entirely the campaign’s fault. If memory serves, Romney’s Big Bird line was the thin reed to which liberals on Twitter were clinging the morning after the Denver debacle: “There’s been a strong grassroots outcry over the attacks on Big Bird. This is something that mothers across the country are alarmed about, and you know, we’re tapping into that,” Psaki told reporters aboard Air Force One on Wednesday… “The larger point… is, aside from our love for Big Bird and Elmo, as is evidenced by the last few days, the point that we’re making here is that...

    TUNISIAN CHILDREN’S MAGAZINE SHOWS KIDS HOW TO MAKE A MOLOTOV COCKTAIL ... Sadly not a misprint. Because that’s the first thing that’s on any kid’s mind, how to light someone else on fire. Kind of reminiscent of the Hamas’ kiddie program featuring mice and bunnies that incite children to commit acts of terrorism. So no folks, this is nothing new. RTNews: A Tunisian children’s magazine “Kaws Kouzah” has recently published a detailed step-by-step instruction of how to make a Molotov cocktail. Now the periodical is facing a lawsuit for endangering kids lives. The Tunisian Ministry for Women and Family Affairs...

    Sentry Journal ^ | 10/08/12 | John Carey
    When Barack Obama was elected in 2008 people threw their support behind hope and change. They placed their trust in Obama to usher in a new age of bipartisanship and unity. After all he was the man said who said we were all Americans no matter whether we came from blue or red states. People were inspired by his words and believed he would reduce the debt, save the economy, end the wars, and change the way business was conducted in Washington. They chanted “yes we can” and embarked on a quest to get the man who would be America’s...
  • Will Iraq’s energy boom postpone peak oil yet again?

    The Telegraph ^ | 10/9/2012 | Ambrose Evans-Pritchard
    Well, here is a shocker for the peak oil camp. Iraq’s oil output will more than double from 2.6 million to 6 million barrels a day (b/d) by the end of the decade. This is 45pc of world oil supply growth over these years. It will reach 8 million b/d by 2035. By then, Iraq will have overtaken Russia to become the world’s second biggest oil exporter – supplying China with 2 million b/d in a modern marine revival of the silk trade – and earning $200 billion a year in revenues. It will also be a major gas exporter....

    On the 11th anniversary of 9/11, I blogged with the following: Vanity Fair contributing editor and former NYTimes reporter Kurt Eichenwald is out promoting a new Bush-Derangement Syndrome book, 500 Days: Secrets and Lies in the Terror Wars You can read an excerpt at Vanity Fair. To be clear, this is an anti-Bush book, putting the worst possible spin upon events described in the book. I loathe spending any money on this; but even partisan books can provide nuggets of useful information when you can cross-reference and wade through the bias filter that any actual facts had been transmuted and...

    Dan from Squirrel Hill's Blog Obamacare is encouraging restaurants to replace full time jobs with part time jobs The Orlando Sentinel reports:In an experiment apparently aimed at keeping down the cost of health-care reform, Orlando-based Darden Restaurants has stopped offering full-time schedules to many hourly workers in at least a few Olive Gardens, Red Lobsters and LongHorn Steakhouses…… many other companies, including the White Castle hamburger chain, are considering employing fewer full-timers because of key features of the Affordable Care Act scheduled to go into effect in 2014. Under that law, large companies must provide affordable health insurance to employees working...
