    In 2008 Barack Obama won Oregon by 17 points but a new SurveyUSA poll shows he is leading by just 4 points. If that was all the bad news out of The Beaver State it would be bad enough foe Obama, but the news gets worse when more realistic standards of voter sentiment are applied to data as presented. In response to this news, the Oregonian (one of the foulest of the Democrats’ mouth piece news outlets) points to the difference between the numbers of registered Democrats/Republicans/Independents who voted in Oregon’s 2010 elections and the breakdown SurveyUSA used to put...

    Bond yields are of 7/32 this morning in early trading. Mortgage rates continue to plummet to almost all time low points. The gift from the European fiasco is the gift that keeps on giving if you are in the market for a mortgage for purchasing or refinancing.
  • Can Obama Learn from the Successful Economies? (Or will he follow the failed Eurozone model?)

    Will Obama learn from Sweden? Will he learn from Canada? Or will he cling to the European socialist economic model that is currently failing? Sweden Anders Borg, Sweden's finance minister, reduced Sweden's deficit and created economic growth. There is one thing that Borg did: "Since becoming Sweden's finance minister, Borg reduced the size of government and cut taxes. His 'stimulus' was a permanent tax cut." Canada Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper said that Forbes magazine selected Canada as the No. 1 country in the world in which to do business. Forbes stated, "Credit a reformed tax structure." On New Year's...

    I know you are aware that Rush Limbaugh, titular head of the R-Words, launched the first round in the War On Women (WOW) when he savagely attacked Sandra Fluke (rhymes with duck) just because she asked America’s taxpayers to pay for her rubbers love gloves boy bonnets condoms contraceptives. He referred to Sandra as a “slut and a prostitute” at which point all hell broke loose. Apparently the standards have been raised.

    It’s mushroom cloud after mushroom cloud for President Obama. We’ll never see the internal polls, but the externals are awful: Down 8 percent to challenger Mitt Romney in the latest poll, with fewer than 180 days; disillusioned college kids, independents and the white working-class fleeing in droves. Even the barber-shops boys are mocking their Man. Makes sense that in Chicagoland, Obama Central, the internals they’re seeing are even worse. Which explains this past week. Joe “Blunderbuss” Biden on May 6 blurts out that he’s totally cool with gays marrying. Mushroom cloud. Release the hounds: The vice president is at odds...

    As all of America knows by now, Obama has aggressively sought to "fundamentally transform" America -- one of the few promises he has kept from the days of 2008. Five trillion dollars of borrowing, ObamaCare passed over the objections of the majority of Americans through legislative legerdemain and special deals made with resistant politicians, failed stimulus, green programs failing left and right as taxpayers are left holding the bag, a recovery that is the most anemic on record, an America that has been sundered by the man who promises to unite us, America weaker abroad and at home -- yes,...

    About two hours after declaring his support for same-sex marriage last week, President Obama gathered eight or so African-American ministers on a conference call to explain himself. He had struggled with the decision, he said, but had come to believe it was the right one. The ministers, though, were not all as enthusiastic. A vocal few made it clear that the president’s stand on gay marriage might make it difficult for them to support his re-election. “They were wrestling with their ability to get over his theological position,” said the Rev. Delman Coates, the pastor of Mt. Ennon Baptist Church...

    While liberal journalists continue to claim that Agenda 21 is just a “conspiracy theory” being advanced by right-wing crackpots, the International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN) and the International Council for Environmental Law (ICEL) have released their fourth Draft of the International Covenant on Environment and Development. This document was designed from the beginning to convert the “soft-law” non-binding Agenda 21 into firmly binding global law — enforceable through the International Criminal Court and/or the dispute resolution features of the Convention on the Law of the Sea. Two excellent analyses of this document are available here and here....

    On behalf of advancing equality, following the "evolution" of Barack Obama being made public, the President's campaign almost instantly added a line of 2012 products to store.barackobama.com that appealed exclusively to euphoric homosexual supporters. A few hours after the President 'came out' for same-sex marriage to Good Morning America news anchor Robin Roberts, who struggled as Obama spoke to contain her uncontrollable "chills," the campaign's website was awash in lesbian, gay, bi-sexual and transgender wares. The White House claimed that "President Obama's decision to reveal his personal position on gay marriage was not political - and it was not planned,"...

    I’m told that Obama seemed “almost giddy” after coming out with his milestone pronouncement in favor of gay marriage. The sheer relief of not being suffocated by hairsplitting political calculus and gamed-out spin control was a moment of moral liberation—not just for Obama but for America. On a less exalted level, it hasn’t hurt Obama’s campaign war chest either. “Yes we can” supporters who’d long lost hope of seeing any audacity from this hyperrational president are opening their checkbooks with fresh abandon. (Let’s raise a cheer here for perennially ridiculed Joe Biden. Some flubs are self-defining, and this one was...

    The Moderate Voice ^ | May 13, 2012 | Joe Gandelman, editor-in-chief
    Is Barack Obama using the “Republican playbook” to run against Mitt Romney? The Huffington Post’s Howard Fineman thinks he is and outlines why in fascinating piece. I agree with him but have two other thoughts as well as we head into Election 2012. Here are some chunks from Fineman’s post, but it needs to be read in full. His intro: As he tries to become only the second Democratic president since Franklin Roosevelt to win reelection, Barack Obama is adopting much of the strategic playbook Republicans have developed and used for 40 years. Of course, on the core substance of...

    for once Newsweek got the message on the cover right. Inasmuch as we are commanded to pray for those in positions of power, I wonder how many of my fellow Christians will join me in prayer for 1) his speedy removal from office, 2) that we be protected from his continued perfidy, and 3) his repentance from a relentless attitude of support for sin. I am horrified that many of my alleged co-religionists will vote for him despite his aggressive hostility towards Biblical truths. If ever there was proof of an enervated Church, that is it. Truly, if there are...

    Prominent social conservatives are claiming that President Barack Obama's endorsement of gay marriage could be the fuel Mitt Romney needs to unite the right in November. Rick Santorum, the former Republican presidential candidate, is on record urging Romney to use this "potent weapon" against the president in the general election. And Family Research Council President Tony Perkins on Sunday called the president's announcement a "missing piece of intensity" for the presumptive GOP nominee. Though gay marriage was not an issue that factored prominently into the 2012 election season until last Wednesday, when the president made his historic announcement, the clear...

    In a gutsy move, Newsweek has released the cover of their next issue, on the cover of which they depict President Obama with a rainbow halo and the title of 'The First Gay President'. The news-magazine, which hits stands Monday, is using the shock factor of labeling the straight, married, father-of-two President to draw attention to itself. Tina Brown, who heads the magazine and it's sister website The Daily Beast, is known for her appreciation of controversial covers to help boost public interest and sales.

    After the presidential campaign has been focusing on female reproductive rights and other women's issues, President Barack Obama is coming to the city Monday to deliver the commencement address at all-female Barnard College and attend two high-profile fundraisers. -snip- After the commencement, Obama is heading to the Rubin Museum of Art in Chelsea for a $5,000-a-ticket fundraiser co-hosted by the LGBT Leadership Council and openly gay singer Ricky Martin. The president will also attend a private, $35,800-a-plate fundraising dinner featuring the cooking of Manhattan chef Vikas Khanna before heading back to the White House. While in the city, Obama will...

    Heading the journalistic adage to "follow the money," the Washington Post has found that every one out of six of President Obama's top fundraising "bundlers" who have hauled in $500,000 or more publicly identify themselves as gay. The implications are clear: as Obama's campaign continued to struggle to haul in large donations, his team needed to fire up his fundraising base by announcing this week's "evolution" on gay marriage. Indeed, as the Washington Post notes, "some liberal gay donors had threatened to withhold contributions over Obama’s stance on gay marriage as well as his administration’s decision to shelve an executive...
