  • Media Matters Palace Guard Defense of Michelle Obama Backfires - Big Time

    08/07/2010 5:01:54 PM PDT · 57 of 226
    Dr. Free Market to kristinn

    Michelle RuPaul Antoinette Obama is signaling that she knows that they aren’t going to be there past 2012, if that long.

    Like some elitist Welfare Queen of the entitlement class, she’ll take everything she can get while they’re there ‘cuz she deserves it. After all, she’s only doing it as reparations on behalf of her people kept down all those years by Whitey. You see, she is being selflessly symbolic for the downtrodden. You go girl (or guy)!

  • LIVE HEALTH CARE THREAD ~ SATURDAY & SUNDAY

    Dr. Free Market to All
    The speech I wish some House Conservative would give on the floor today:

    Madame Speaker, I rise to speak to those few remaining undecideds on this so called health care reform bill upon which we will vote this evening.

    I am not speaking to those that have already cast their lot with and sold their souls to a failed leftist ideology; for all the evidence of history is lost on them.

    I am not speaking to those that believe that this bill “reduces deficits” or “creates jobs”; for any appeals to logic and rationality are likewise lost. I only need to point to the eerily similar utopian promises made for Medicare and Medicaid that now are bankrupting our country and states as evidence of their folly.

    No. I am speaking to those few that for whatever reason remain undecided as to how they will vote. I want to crystallize for you possibly the only reason to vote “No.”

    There comes a time in everyone’s life when one reaches a fork in the road, and the path you decide to take will define you for evermore. This is such a time. However you vote, please understand that not only you but your progeny will bear the result in more ways than one.

    You have to know that this bill is wrong; otherwise, you would have already decided. Your conflict is whether you are strong enough--man or women enough--to do the right thing then withstand the scorn of the powerbrokers in your party, including our President.

    I’ll admit that this is an unenviable reality, but let me impress upon you an even more frightening reality. If you vote “Yes” despite believing the consequences will be potentially devastating for your state and country, then you will have to live the rest of your days looking into the eyes of your spouse and children with them knowing that you were too weak to stand up for what you believed in when this defining moment arrived. Oh, their love will still be unconditional, but their respect for you will be forever diminished. Even if your children are too young to understand now, your partner will know; and some day, so will they. Even worse, they will have to bear your stain—at school, at the grocery, and at any gathering of friends and family.

    Myself, I would prefer that those that I love were able to proudly defend my vote and honor knowing that I stood on principle when history called, rather than being reduced to spouting campaign talking points all the while knowing in their heart of hearts that the truth was that I was a coward.

    I don’t envy your choice.
    I yield back what I am afraid is the balance of America’s time.

    Don't they realize that if it weren't for Palin, McCain would have lost by 20-25%. Even with as bad a campaign as they ran (e.g mismanaging Palin), McCain was poised to win a landslide until he/they self-immolated on the bailout. All he had to do was say he was against it, vote NO, and put forth a nominal plan of getting rid of mark-to-market and retroactive tax cuts, and BOOM.. it's Obama who?

    Dr. Free Market to freekitty

    Blackwell is for real. The problem is that he is not a strategist. His gubernatorial campaign was one self-inflicted blunder after another. The GOP needs more than just a real conservative; it needs a real conservative everyman who is a master political strategist with a rhetorical flare when speaking and no shame or conscience when it comes to beating Democrats. I don’t know who fits that profile (other than me) — a combination of Gingrich, Steele, Blackwell, and Palin — but if you find him/her, let me know ‘cuz that’s what we need.

    Dr. Free Market to kellynla

    All the evidence suggests that Biden is much dumber than Demoscrats think Palin is; and Palin much smarter than they think Biden is. If Palin had said 1/10 the crap that’s come out of Biden’s head, I’d be leading the charge to drop her from the ticket.

    If you recall, we said that Biden was at the bottom of the list of VP candidates that worried Republicans, below Osama bin Laden and Hannah Montana — now you know why.

    If I didn’t know better, I’d think Biden was a Republican, or more likely, a Clinton plant. Biden makes Palin seem like Margaret Thatcher by the day.

    Colin Powell was Obama’s last trump, and it got jumped by Biden’s warning to the world. Any Powell bump - minimal at best - is done despite the Media trying desperately to make it and him relevant; but Biden’s a lodestone around Obama’s neck - just like we knew he would be - which all goes back to B. Hussein’s judgment.

    Dr. Free Market to Malone LaVeigh

    Colin Powell needs the Media to reform his legacy of being proven wrong at every turn for the last 18 years. He advised not to go into Baghdad and finish the job in the first Iraq War, which would have obviated the rest of history since. He enabled Clinton’s fecklessness regarding terrorism. He spearheaded (reluctantly) the liberation of Iraq - which he didn’t believe in - then stabbed Pres. Bush in the back at every turn as his Sec. of State. Now, he is completing the circle of incompetent advice to the country while sniffin’ for a job by paying his pennance to Lord Obama and the Media by again stabbing in the back the one man who was right during the whole War.

    After hearing and reading Powell’s non-sensical endorsement, I honestly doubt that this is anything more than another Black guy endorsing Barack to stick it to Whitey so that he looks good in the history books.

  • Obama's lead falls two points in new CNN Poll of Polls

    10/17/2008 8:36:13 AM PDT · 22 of 25
    Dr. Free Market to savedbygrace
    Here’s all you need to know:

    Since 1988, the largest party ID differential for any election - that includes 2 Clinton wins, the Rep takeover in ‘94, the Dem takeover in ‘06 - has been Dem +4 in ‘96.

    Every election Dems think THIS will be the year that all those winos, homeless, and college students are going to vote, and it hasn’t happened yet. Some day it may (possibly ‘08), but I have no reason to believe that this will be the year. Remember, all those newly registered voters were unregistered for a reason - THEY DON’T VOTE! I would assume any other national poll with a Dem advantage >4 is likely suspect, and needs to be adjusted at the point of consumption.

    Ohio:

    The Ohio Poll - the most accurate polling service in Ohio - which has projected Election Day winners in 34 of 34 statewide contests polled since ‘94 has McCain +2 in Ohio using their usual model. All other polling services give Obama a lead anywhere from +2 to +5. I’ll believe The Ohio Poll - based on track record - which suggests that the other polls are 4-7 off to Obama’s favor. The question is, "Does this reflect polling in other swing states?"

    1. McCain is +2 in Ohio according to the most accurate polling service in Ohio, and despite all other polling services giving Obama a lead anywhere from +2 to +5 per RCP. I’ll believe the U. of C., which suggests that the polling from other states may be off from 4-7 points as well.

    The Ohio Poll : “...since 1994 The Ohio Poll has projected Election Day winners in 34 of 34 statewide contests polled.”

    2. Hmmm... Why do you suppose that Gallup all of a sudden changed the way that they are reporting the polls?

    According to RCP:

    The Gallup organization has taken the unusual step in its Gallup Daily Tracking Poll of releasing two sets of "Likely Voters" results.


    The first likely voter model is based on Gallup's traditional likely voter assumptions...(a)ccording to this model, Obama's advantage over McCain is 50% to 46% in Oct. 9-11 tracking data. The second likely voter... is only based on respondents' current voting intention... among groups that are traditionally less likely to vote... According to this second likely voter model, Obama has a 51% to 45% lead over McCain.


    RealClearPolitics, however, in their daily report is using an average of Gallup's two Likely Voters results - Obama 52, McCain 43.5 (Obama +8.5).


    If one is a lead of 4, and the other is a lead of 6, how do you get an average lead of 8.5?!


    This morning on Quinn & Rose, their "insider" said the RNC internals have McCain +3.

    It appears that “abuse of power” was put in there solely to attract the exact headlines that this report is receiving. The findings of report specifically contradict its title and doesn’t detail any personal or financial gain that would justify a finding of an ethics violation or abuse of power.

    Palin gets a manufactured slap on the wrist in a political witchhunt, and it’s all over the media. Obama’s hip deep in causing the greatest economic crisis since The Great Depression, a decade-long voter fraud scam with ACORN, and an attempted overthrow of the Chicago Public School System with a terrorist — not to mention Rezko and indoctrinating his children in a an anti-American racist church — but the Media won’t touch those stories.

    Now try and tell me that there is no Obama bias in the MSM; but McCain tells me that Obama is honorable, and I’m not supposed to be angry despite being called a racist for the last year by B. Hussein’s surrogates.

    If turnouts are comparable to '04, and McCain gets > Bush's percentage of Indies (48%) - which has been his plan all along - then regardless of the historic significance, this should be a Dem heartbreaker again - only funnier! Actually, what Obama has to realistically hope for is that he is seen as inevitable; hence, the phony poll demographics. This sways the herd mentality of the "Independents" (Ironic isn't it?) toward the preordained candidate.

    Remember, many Independents/Moderates just want to say that they voted for the winner as it confirms their disengaged selfabsorption.

    This is the same scenario as before Clinton. Everyone was told (warned) about his history of corruption, obfuscation, minimizing questionable associations, self-agrandizement, and refusal to make potentially unpopular decisions, but they were ignored. Today, we are still digging out of from this pathology - terrorism, “affordable housing,” politics of personal destruction. Yet here we are, and the same people that gave us that mistake, are going to make it again - only this time, there’s no prospect of 4 years of a conservative Congress in the middle years to save us.

    Make no mistake about it, the current economic crisis IS the Obama-Democrat economy that started after the election of ‘06 - minimum wage, not making the tiny Bush tax rate cuts permanent, turning Fannie and Freddie into their personal ATM/vote machine. All the legislative mistakes that occurred after the Crash of ‘29 that turned a typical recession into the Great Depression are being promised by Obama with a filibuster-proof Senate. The last 2 times that happened we got The Great Depression, The New Deal, WWII, “The 60’s,” and The Great Society. What self-inflicted socioeconomic immolation will be wrought this time? Universal Health Care? Living wage? “Patriot companies” (protectionism)?

    Those that do not learn from history are doomed to repeat it. In this case the past is certainly prologue.

    All of this is foreshadowing the Obama economy that started after the election of ‘06. At that time, businesses and productive citizens (i.e. taxpayers) started preparing for the coming oppressive regulation and high taxation; hence, the reason a vibrant economy had the breaks put on by the Democrats and Media.

    The markets are down not because of the Obama-Bush $850 billion bailout, which we were told should have buoyed markets - I didn’t believe it, but the markets knew it was inevitable and factored it in before last Friday; and not because of the manufactured “credit crisis” - and it was manufactured as an “October Surprise” by the Dems along with Paulson, markets saw it coming months ago and factored it in; and not because the rate cut was too small - a intrameeting 50 basis point cut was expected and already factored in yesterday. The real reason is because the markets are convinced that Obama is going to win, and they are preparing for a prolonged economic catastrophe - “The Democrat Effect” - which started in Nov. ‘06 after the election. The beginning was the passage of the increased minimum wage, refusal to make permanent the tiny tax rate cuts of 2001-03, then the continue ignoring of Fannie and Freddie despite repeated government and financial sector warnings.

    Dr. Free Market to markomalley

    Here’s my conspiracy theory:

    The Democrats without shame or conscience have steered us (purposely, I believe) towards a manufactured economic crisis for political gain, and as an ideological mechanism to nationalize the financial structure of the U.S. The Republicans in Congress, being “moderate” (i.e. feckless) didn’t have the guts to stand up to them and their Media organs. The few Conservatives left in Congress couldn’t convince their linguini-spined peers to stand up against the assault despite their repeated warnings. The Media created an alternate reality narrative to protect this economic coup, then their Trojan Horse Treasury Secretary 6 weeks before the election as McCain is surging orchestrates an economic panic and convinces an emasculated center-left lame duck president that his legacy will be a second Great Depression if he doesn’t succumb to his blackmail.

    The Obama-Bush Wall St. Bailout Bill will have two immediate outcomes: 1. It will set the stage for der Fuehrer Obama to socialize the entire economy of the U.S., and 2. It will do nothing to ease the self-inflicted “credit crisis” but will throw another $850 billion after the previous $900 billion already yacked this year that had no effect.

    All of this is foreshadowing the Obama economy that started after the election of ‘06. At that time, businesses and productive citizens (i.e. taxpayers) started preparing for the coming oppressive regulation and high taxation; hence, the reason a vibrant economy had the breaks put on by the Democrats and Media.

    FYI: Why did the Dems allow the original 3-page bailout fail? On purpose in order to piggy back onto it many socialist precepts, in particular Patrick Kennedy’s failed Paul Wellstone Mental Health and Addiction Equity Act (HR 1424) from March of 2007!

    Of course, you’d have to believe that Democrats are so power hungry to collapse our economy in order to win an election. Personally, I don’t think that is a stretch at all. I would have found it harder to believe that they tried to head it off.

    in the same story that started it ( http://blogs.abcnews.com/politicalpunch/2008/09/members-of -frin.html ):

    “Governor Palin has been a registered Republican since 1982,” Rogers says, providing some voter registration documentation showing her to be a Republican. “As you know, if she changed her registration, there would have been some record of it. There isn’t.”

    Rogers says the McCain campaign provided ABC News with all the voter registration information that exists. Rogers says that Palin didn’t attend the AIP convention in 1994, “but she visited them when they had their convention in Wasilla in 2000 as a courtesy since she was mayor.”

    He would not comment as to why AIP officials are so convinced Palin was a member of their party. When asked if Palin ever identified herself as a member of the AIP, Rogers said, “No, she’s a lifelong Republican.”

    The leftists are flailing now and missing with every wild haymaker.

    Some are missing my question. This party would occur AFTER ‘08. It is the voting habits of this election and their after effects if this “deal” is made that I am considering most.

    Great responses so far, though. Thanx.

    What if Rush said that he would start a Reagan conservative third-party (with Newt as the head) if, and only if, McCain wins? What do you think the effects, including unintended effects, would be? Go...

    Ah, just another day in the Democrat’s leftist utopia of Louisiana.

    It’s just a matter of time before someone in the legacy Media hegemon makes this an official example of “George Bush’s America,” and/or blames Republicans/conservatives when we know all these inbred racists are Democrats.

    I believe RINObitch is showing his true colors exactly because he does not plan to run in 2010. If he is running, his actions since 2004 have guaranteed that he will lose - if not in a primary then in the general.

    He is just legacy building for when he retires back in Cleveland. He is trying to gain favor of the Media and NEO Democrats - who really shape the general opinions of the majority of Ohioans (i.e. the ill- and non-informed) - in order to be portrayed as an “independent” elder statesman.

    I congratulate the Leftists (i.e. Democrats), legacy Media, and “moderates”. In 2003, the Democrat Party was within one house election cycle of extermination as a viable electoral entity, and in less than 4 years, they not only pulled a Lazarus, but convinced the Republican Party to commit suicide.

    This just made me sick! Not a word about it from the legacy media in Ohio - that's why I had to link to CAIR's website. It's big news on the center-right Ohio blogs, though.

    John McCain is going to become the Ross Perot of 2008. The man is such a high-functioning psychotic that once he loses that first primary, he'll jump ship "just to teach all you idiot Republicans a lesson."

    I agree. I recognized and excused John Kerry's botched joke about "get stuck in Iraq'" I recognized this as a botched joke, too. Move on.

    It does illustrate the difference between how Kerry was defended, but Coulter is vilified. Apparently, people have higher expectations more from a conservative pundit than any Democrat. If I was Edwards, I'd be more insulted by that.

    Blackwell's is a true grassroots campaign. He has had relatively little State or National Party support. Actually, the OH Rep Party has been undermining him. That race is going to end up 3-4% either way. If he loses, the Rep elites are going to have egg on their faces, but try to blame Blackwell's "extremist" views. If he wins, he will clean house of the OH RINO Party.

    I think Zogby is close to reality, add +3 to 4 for Repub and -3 to 4 for Dems on Rassmussen. SurveyUSA is worthless. Any race where a Repub deficit is within 4 on Nov. 7 is a tossup, and depends on turnout.

    Right, LS. I am using exit poll data fromm CNN over time, assuming that Reps and Dems are equally motivated-- benefits Dems-- but allowing for the median historical decrease in midterm turnout in Ohio (~15), then defining likely voters as those that consider the economy as "very important" since that most correlates with actual voters across parties in gubernatorial elections. The 20% that said that the economy wasn't important had unusually high undecideds and young, which are the least likely to vote in a midterm. As I said, the -6.2% is only "backback of the envelope", but it has followed Zogby closely and trended with Rassmussen. So take it for what it's worth.
