    Hillary Clinton should probably tell her supporters and butt-hurt liberals what she said on the presidential campaign trail when she was railing against President-Elect Donald Trump. Remember a couple months ago, Hillary attacked Trump for failing to say whether or not he would accept the election results, by claiming it was a “direct threat” to America and to democracy. Except, now it’s Hillary’s supporters who won’t accept the election results. Take a look:

    Democrats are even accusing the Trump campaign of using the "Alt-Right" to engage in Reconstruction Era style voter suppression tactics The liberal left has come up with a new term for their latest deceptive game of race-card. “Alt-Right.” The Alt-Right is supposed to be right-wing racists and white supremacists of the GOP who the Democrats say are also the people who support the so-called white supremacist racist Donald Trump. Except, it is all based on empty rhetoric that actually shows the desperation of the Democrat Party as they realize they can’t win in the arena of ideas. . . so...

    Democrats are having a hard time coming to terms with the fact that they lost the presidential election. Now they are threatening to kill Republican electors unless they switch allegiance and vote for Hillary Clinton when the electoral college meets on December 19. The Detroit News reports: Trump’s opponents have deluged [Michael] Banerian and other GOP electors with pleas and nasty emails to reverse course and cast their ballots for Clinton, according to the Michigan Republican Party.“You have people saying ‘you’re a hateful bigot, I hope you die,’” he said. Democrats apparently have had all sense of irony surgically removed....

    FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. — Donald Trump is more than un-American, President Barack Obama charged here Friday: He’s almost inhuman. That’s not all: Trump’s running a racist campaign that black voters especially need to reject, Obama said. “Don’t choose fear. Choose hope,” Obama said, offering his closing argument for the final days of the campaign that’s a summoning of his own 2008 campaign and a rejection of Trump. “Don’t choose fear. Choose hope.” And Trump would only get worse if he made it to the Oval Office, Obama warned here in this state that Hillary Clinton’s campaign is hoping will go back...

They are in a panic with Trump closing the polling gap in battleground states. So as panicked people sometimes do, the Brooklyn Brain Trust made a decision from the gut. They are scared of the Trump supporters, and they presume that their voters are too. So scared that it makes sense to them for Bill and Hillary Clinton to publicly disparage a substantial fraction of...

Yet when Vice President Joe Biden, on Thursday, told an audience member that Republican “young guns” like Vice Presidential nominee Paul Ryan had “bullets” aimed at him the networks delivered just a scant two total mentions (on NBC and CBS, ABC skipped the gaffe entirely.)

In Ohio, which could determine the outcome of the election, CNN reports that Republicans are significantly improving in early voting from four years ago, a key to winning the state. And the Romney campaign is so confident of victory in North Carolina (which Obama won last time)...

    DENVER – Mitt Romney has flipped the script. Not only is the Republican presidential candidate, after a brutal month following the conventions, getting a significant bounce following his strong performance in last week’s debate, but Romney is also now the candidate articulating a more inspirational, positive vision for the country’s future (even if he is quoting regularly from the show, “Friday Night Lights”). President Barack Obama, meanwhile, who’d benefited all summer from offering a more optimistic vision that contrasted with Romney’s negative assessment of the country’s economic situation, now seems to be going small.

    Politics: Despite the whipping they took in Tuesday's election, congressional Democrats are moving fast on cap-and-trade and health care. Are they politically tone-deaf, or is this some kind of desperate strategy? Our guess is that Democratic leaders, having gotten a very negative message from the off-year balloting, are moving as fast as they can to pass the main big-spending items on their unpopular agenda. If they don't act now, the know their radical agenda is dead. On Thursday, Senate Democrats hustled the cap-and-trade bill out of committee without so much as a hello-and-howdy to the Republicans — knowing full well...

    In politics, everyone wants to be seen as a mudslinging virgin - who, like King Lear, is "more sinned against than sinning." Toward that end, Democrats have crafted the conceit that Republicans are attack dogs, while Democratic candidates are not sufficiently ruthless. After years of calling President Bush every name in the book, the left nonetheless manages to see itself as the victim in the smear game. Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama knows how to play to that conceit. In a speech before a Veterans of Foreign Wars gathering in Florida on Tuesday, Obama went into woe-is-me mode as he...

    Search the Internet for "Bush Lied" products, and you will find sites that offer more than a thousand designs. The basic "Bush Lied, People Died" bumper sticker is only the beginning. Sen. John D. Rockefeller IV (D-W.Va.), chairman of the Select Committee on Intelligence, set out to provide the official foundation for what has become not only a thriving business but, more important, an article of faith among millions of Americans. And in releasing a committee report Thursday, he claimed to have accomplished his mission, though he did not use the L-word. "In making the case for war, the administration...

    Yes, that's right boys and girls. The report that many politco-geeks have been waiting YEARS to read, has finally been released; the Senate Intelligence Committee's Investigative Report on Pre-War Intelligence About Saddam's Iraq. We've waited FIVE YEARS for clear evidence that Bush lied, and what do we get....(insert Price Is Right style drum roll here): A report that is purely political and partisanand a report that has nothing to do with Iraq, but looks at Bush Administration officials who had "talks" w Iran before the war, but failed to go through CIA and State Dept channels. Several things strike me...

    Former White House Aide's Revelations Make Out Case for Obstruction of Justice by Rove and Libby in Valerie Plame Case (Washington, DC) Today Congressman Robert Wexler (D-FL) called for former White House Press Secretary Scott McClellan to appear before the House Judiciary Committee to testify under oath regarding the devastating revelations made in his new book on the Bush Administration’s deliberate efforts to mislead the American people into the Iraq War. “The admissions made by Scott McClellan in his new book are earth-shattering and allege facts to establish that Karl Rove and Scooter Libby – and possibly Vice President Cheney...

    A few weeks ago, the New York Times tried to manufacture a McCain land deal scandal and today it’s the Washington Post’s turn. The front-page headline of Post staff writer Matthew Mosk’s story is titled “McCain Pushed Land Swap that Benefits Backer.” It says McCain negotiated a land swap to allow Arizona rancher Fred Ruskin to exchange his checkerboard of property located in the Prescott National Forest for an equal piece of continuous federal land that was later sold for development. Mainly because the developer, Steven A. Betts, who purchased the land from Ruskin is a donor to McCain’s presidential...

    Can a presidential candidate justify a long and friendly relationship with someone who, back in the 1970s, extolled violence and committed crimes in the name of a radical ideology -- and who has never shown remorse or admitted error? When the candidate in question is Barack Obama, John McCain says no. But when the candidate in question is John McCain, he's not so sure. Obama has been justly criticized for his ties to former Weather Underground member Bill Ayers, who in 1995 hosted a campaign event for Obama and in 2001 gave him a $200 contribution. The two have also...

    So, I post this morning on the Edwards scum, I'm out most of the day, and come back to this. Classic. When I made a reference to Edwards' obsession with Ann in the previous post, I did so because I couldn't imagine them going after her again when it has become painfully clear how pathetic both he and his wife have become. Well, i was wrong, which does happen, albeit rarely. Obviously, they must need money. Edwards, in fact, has cleared out his Nevada operation because they're short on cash. And now he attacks Coulter because he's void of ideas....
