  • Obama's Big Lie Campaign

    Politics: President Obama says he deserves four more years in the White House so he can fix the huge mess he inherited. But to make that case, he's embarked on a massive disinformation campaign on full display this week. How else do you run on a record that includes the worst economic recovery since the Great Depression, falling incomes, low-paying jobs and little hope of a brighter future? You trot out dozens of speakers at the week's Democratic Convention, culminating with Bill Clinton, to repeat untruths that would make George Orwell proud.
  • The Great National Amnesia This Political Seasons (Both Dems and Reps)

    The Great National Amnesia: Clinton had a Republican Congress and he is taking credit for its success, Bush had a Democrat Congress in his last 2 years and being blamed for its failure. Listening to Bubba, he forgets the 1994 sea-change in Congress and the successful (seemingly) agenda of the Contract With America. The 'blame Bush crowd forgets that Dems ran the table in his last 2 years that led in great measure to the financial crisis. Bush brought President-elect Obama on board, and Barry acts stupid and 'had no idea how bad it was'. LIAR!

    Are You Better Off Than You Were at the End of the Bush Administration? A Data-Based Assessment I've heard a lot about the "four years ago" comparison. Four years ago, we were on the cusp of Don Luskin’s famous prediction (“... we're on the brink not of recession, but of accelerating prosperity.”), and Phill Gramm had two months earlier decried the ongoing “mental recession”. [0] It seems to me the more appropriate marker is the last election, in 2008Q4. We can then assess what the data tells us about 2012Q2 vis a vis 2008Q4. Aggregate Measures of Activity and Income...
  • Timeline of Katrina and Isaac Landfall and Presidential Visits: Obama Slower than Bush

    There are some arguments, of course, that could be offered against a simple comparison of timelines. However, given the political realities of hurricanes making landfall around New Orleans, I find it amazing that Obama delayed a visit to this area. In light of a levee being breached, massive flooding, and torrential rain damage, one really has to wonder whether political gamesmanship made him ignore these people for political points. Additionally, President Bush flew over the day before he visited. (Note the wiki timeline below: it seems to indicate a Bush visit on 1 September, but I could not corroborate that.)...

    LONDON - Nobel Peace Prize Laureate Desmond Tutu called Sunday for Tony Blair and George Bush to face prosecution at the International Criminal Court for their role in the 2003 U.S.-led invasion of Iraq Tutu, the retired Anglican Church's archbishop of South Africa, wrote in an op-ed piece for The Observer newspaper that the ex-leaders of Britain and the United States should be made to "answer for their actions." The Iraq war "has destabilized and polarized the world to a greater extent than any other conflict in history," wrote Tutu, who was awarded the Nobel prize in 1984. "Those responsible...

    Welcome to Florida! Bienvenido a Florida! This election is about the future of this nation. We can shape that future with what we do here, with what we do November 6. We can restore America's greatness. That starts with a strong economy, a smart energy policy, lower deficits, and a president who puts America's workers and job-creators first. But to have a great future - a secure future - a future that is equal to our potential as a nation, we need to do something else. We must make sure that our children and grandchildren are ready for the world...

    Tonight, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush is addressing the Republican National Convention. Why is he being given that honor, you say? That is a good question, since he is at great odds with both the party's nominee, the party's platform, and the American people on the issue of immigration, and continues to insult us on a weekly basis to pimp his pro-amnesty views that we have consistently rejected. At a forum on immigration, Bush said Republicans aren’t going to close the gap with Hispanic voters until they “stop acting stupid” by being too "tough" on "immigrants" (the usual code for illegal...

    TAMPA, Fla. — Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush (R) on Tuesday said Republicans aren’t going to close the gap with Hispanic voters until they “stop acting stupid.” Bush said many Hispanic voters share the GOP’s commitment to faith, family and small government but have been alienated from the party by exclusionary rhetoric on immigration. But that, he said, is finally changing. “I promise you this is where the conservative cause is going, and thank God it is,” he said to cheers at a lunch sponsored by the center-right Hispanic Leadership Network. The advantage that Democrats have with Hispanics is a...
  • Protesters try to arrest Condoleezza Rice at RNC event (Code Pink)

    TAMPA, Fla. — Police in Tampa stopped a dozen anti-war protesters from entering an event attended by former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice after the group said it intended to arrest her for war crimes. The protesters from Code Pink carried handcuffs Tuesday and tried to enter a performing arts center. Rice was attending an event in conjunction with the Republican National Convention. They said they wanted to make a citizen's arrest of Rice. She was George W. Bush's National Security Adviser when the Iraq War started in 2003. Officers told protesters to leave because they were on private property...

    Just came across this interview with an Irish journalist during a stop through Ireland when W.

If a journalist did this today to Obama they would be called unprofessional and a racist, however it was perfectly fine to treat a 2-time elected President of the United States who was a Republican this way. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pZ36HS8dRbY&feature=colike

Here's Stephanie Cutter's quote in full — uttered Wednesday on MSNBC's "Morning Joe" — just so no one can accuse us of taking anything out of context: "Well, I think that worker probably has a good understanding of what's happened over the past four years in terms of the president coming in and seeing 800,000 jobs lost on the day that the president was being sworn in, and...

    Washington - The strategic partnership between India and the United States has "retreated" under the current Obama Administration as compared to the momentum built during the Bush-era, Republican White House hopeful Mitt Romney's campaign has said. "The relationship between India and the US is mutually beneficial and there is a need to forge new areas of cooperation," a top foreign policy advisor to Romney said yesterday. "I worked in the Bush Administration both 41 and 43. Especially in 43 (George W Bush) we were very proud of the partnership were able to forge between the United States and India. "I...

    National Review ^ | 08/15/2012 | Michael Novak
    The central mantra of President Obama’s campaign is false. That mantra is: “The Republicans tried their plan for the economy and it failed. I tried a new plan and it worked.” As I pointed out on National Review Online yesterday, the facts are otherwise. Closing out his fourth year in office, President Obama has an 8.3 percent unemployment rate. He also boasts the lowest rate of participation in the labor force in 30 years (63.7 percent). More Americans are out of work than at any time in the preceding 30 years. There are 7 million more persons in poverty than...

    Can someone explain to me why the Americans are so shameless in their love of dynasties? The Founding Fathers must turn in their grave as the Kennedys, Bushes and Clintons grab the glittering prizes. But for a bargain struck by Hillary Clinton with Obama in 2008 she might well have become an ultra-bossy Mrs President. Settling for Secretary of State, she has, in her quarrelsome way, caused the usual damage abroad associated with that office.
