    I did the first one of these for this election cycle 459 days ago, although it only feels like six, maybe seven times that many. First up is the map Democrats tell you is far too conservative, since The Chosen Won will win so big and so early that the Rocky Mountain states like Montana will simply suspend their elections and succumb to the inevitable. Nevertheless, if Obama wins, this is probably about as good as it gets.

    Me | 8/24/2012 | Patrick1
    Freepers are well known over the years for worrying about every poll that comes out. Too many Dems in the poll, they never poll me, all that stuff. Well friends it is time to stop worrying about surveys because you don't need them to know what is going on. Use your mind and your eyes. A novel approach granted. First the mind, any poll that shows Obama the four year incumbant under 50% in a state is a state he will not carry. So when you see a poll that says Obama 47% Romney 45% in xyz state, Obama is...

Five percent (5%) prefer some other candidate, and four percent (4%) are undecided. Romney has a 20-point advantage among white voters. Obama is supported by 91% of black voters and 57% of other minority voters.

    When they make the movie about the Costa Concordia, the cruise ship that grounded off the coast of Tuscany, there won’t be romantic tales about its captain.

    Tattler ^ | 10/17/2011 | H.L. Menck
    The government consists of a gang of men exactly like you and me. They have, taking one with another, no special talent for the business of government; they have only a talent for getting and holding office. Their principal device to that end is to search out groups who pant and pine for something they can’t get and to promise to give it to them. Nine times out of ten that promise is worth nothing. The tenth time is made good by looting A to satisfy B. In other words, government is a broker in pillage, and every election is...

    From the Democratic Party’s 1924 nominee John W. Davis, who, after losing to Calvin Coolidge but feeling that one of his problems was the strain of demagogic populism in the Democratic Party, said this: “When will we get done with the fool idea that the way to make a party grow is to scare away everybody who has an extra dollar in his pocket?

    I’d put money that the map they’re looking at in the White House isn’t any different from this one. Why does it look like this? Not from the polls, believe it or not. Longtime readers know I don’t put much stock in those this far out, and don’t much discuss them before the summer of the election year. I barely look at them. Instead, fives rules of thumb: 1. President Obama will not win any states he didn’t win in 2008. 2. North Carolina and Indiana are gone for the Democrats. Indiana was a fluke — due to proximity to...

And I think the American people have got to be engaged. It’s not just me or anybody else here in Washington. There are a lot of smart honest progressive people who I think can be good presidents.”Sanders said such a challenge was necessary since in his estimation, the president had begun to take his position as the party leader for granted. And I think one of the...

    "The Undefeated," the documentary about Sarah Palin, appears to have suffered box office defeat. The film opened in 10 locations last week and upped its exposure to 14 cities this weekend. But Reuters today reports that even as the number of screening venues increased, box office revenue has declined by more than 63 percent. It grossed only $24,000 this past weekend.

    Minnesota Republican Rep. Michele Bachmann is an accomplished woman — a former federal tax attorney, mother of five, longtime conservative activist — but evidently not a specialist in colonial history or New England geography. Speaking at an event Saturday in Manchester, N.H., Bachmann misplaced the “Shot Heard ‘Round the World,” producing much guffawing from liberals. Apparently, Gawker editor Jeff Neumann was so eager to jump on the dogpile he didn’t have time to spellcheck: No one has ever accused Tea Partiers of being especially bright, but Michele Bachmann blew it pretty hard today in New Hamshire. …

All the 2012 GOP challengers are continuously dismissed in the media.

    Sarah Palin seems to be the favorite of the majority of Free Republic members. I still have not made up my mind about her. But if she is the consevative movement's choice to take on the disaster of Obama who has gone from The Messiah to the Mess then there are things that she will need to overcome to get 50% plus one of the American people's vote in 2012. I've listed the ones I hope her supporters can address here because failure to take these issues on will result in certain defeat.

    Amid growing dissatisfaction with federal employees, a group of younger, web-savvy feds are planning to march on Saturday in defense of their coworkers on the sidelines of Jon Stewart's "Rally to Restore Sanity." Organizers of the "Government Doesn't Suck March" (their choice of words, not ours) were inspired in part by last week's Washington Post poll that revealed widespread negative perceptions of federal workers. "We hear it day in and day out: the government sucks, federal employees are lazy and their positions are redundant," said march organizer Steve Ressler, founder of GovLoop, a social networking Web site for public servants.

    For that reason, the self-titled Tea Party analogy misses the mark historically. The historic Boston Tea Party (Dec. 1773) occurred at a point much closer to the culmination of the Imperial Crisis, which was already eight years in the making. The Patriot cause in 1773 was actually quite mature and ready to break across the "national" scene as a sophisticated colony-wide movement. The illegal attack on private property in Boston Harbor provoked the British government into the Intolerable Acts and led to the First Continental Congress and the short ascent to full-blown Revolution. If anything, this modern Tea Party movement...

Worse, when the market turned south, we faced the nightmarish prospect of being relocated to homes that we arguably could afford.
