    Oh if only Islamic radicals would riot over the HHS contraception mandate and gay marriage. If they did, the Administration would fall all over themselves to apologize. Don’t believe me? Consider yesterday’s events well chronicled by Jeff Emanuel. A group in the United States exercised their first amendment rights, which set off rioting yet again among the religion of peace. Egyptians stormed the American Embassy, torn down the American flag, burned it, and replaced it with a black flag used by Al Qaeda. In Libya, our consulate was attacked and an Embassy employee killed. The Obama Administration’s Egyptian Embassy responded...

    After two weeks of people advocating for big-government, bottom-up philosophies vs. free market, small businesses, and ideas of how to grow our economy out of this mess, the halls have died down. The delegates have returned home. God has been voted down. The unborn child has been prayed for at the conclusion of both conventions. Assertions of freedom of choice have been made on everything from sex to guns. Distinct ideas have been put forth about economic improvement as well as America's role in the world, and one side has even carefully examined the number of times the other specifically...

    I'll be brief. I had a very successful talk w/ my minister who I've been seeing walk down a path of "social justice" know what I mean. But, had a long talk and a very fruitful one at that. I now have a job of keeping him informed...caveat is the sources for such information need to primary, not seconary or less - this is because to convince some congregants, this needs to be so as we really have a mixed congregation racially and politically... One change for example is I pointed out that the work requirement being by edict removed...
  • Democrats are going to steal the Presidential Election. They CAN'T win it.

    The Democrats are going to make an effort to steal the presidential election in my opinion. They certainly can't win it with the almost daily gaffes by any of the leadership when they open their mouths. Obama says business men didn't build their businesses, Obama is openly pro-gay and abortion and now a huge number of delegates have booed God and the existence of Israel openly at the Democrat National Convention. Only the freak, fringe element will vote for Obama now. And, fortunately, that will add up to still only about 15% percent of the population, and most of that...

    As someone who was at first for Sarah Palin, then Herman Cain, then Newt Gingrich, I am beginning to believe we may in the end consider ourselves lucky to have nominated Mitt Romney. What I see that I like begins, but does not end, with the nomination of Paul Ryan. Mitt did not succumb to political expediency in this pick. No pander pick here, even for a position that is ALWAYS a pander pick. Ryan is not a woman, not black, not Hispanic, not a Floridian, not an Oihoan. Paul Ryan is not a “long-time friend”. It also speaks volumes...

    Suzie: Daddy, Daddy, our teacher has asked us to write a story on why President Obama should be re-elected. Dad: That’s wonderful. You have a very good teacher. Suzie: I asked her what I should write about, and she said that Romney was too rich to be president and couldn’t relate to the rest of us. Dad: That’s right, Sweetums. Rich people oppress the poor and make the rest of us poorer. So, have you done some research? Suzie: Yes. I looked up a lot of stuff and I’m confused. The computer said that John Kerry was our candidate before...

    I was a good loser four years ago. “In the grand scheme of history,” I wrote the day after Barack Obama’s election as president, “four decades is not an especially long time. Yet in that brief period America has gone from the assassination of Martin Luther King Jr. to the apotheosis of Barack Obama. You would not be human if you failed to acknowledge this as a cause for great rejoicing.” Despite having been—full disclosure—an adviser to John McCain, I acknowledged his opponent’s remarkable qualities: his soaring oratory, his cool, hard-to-ruffle temperament, and his near faultless campaign organization. Yet the...

    Rasmussen: Voters say Ryan more qualified to be president than BidenBy Meghashyam Mali - 08/18/12 01:33 PM ET A new poll shows voters giving Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) a slight edge when asked which VP candidate is better qualified to serve as president. The new survey from conservative-leaning outlet Rasmussen shows that 42 percent say the House Budget Chairman and Mitt Romney running mate would be more qualified to be commander-in-chief. Forty percent pick Vice President Joe Biden, with 18 percent undecided. Ryan’s two-point edge, however, is within the poll’s 3-percent margin of error. The survey comes after a difficult...

    When Barack Obama made his since-gone-viral “you didn’t build that” speech (Twitter #YDBT) he turned over a very telling card in a socialist hand that he’s been building since his 2008 campaign. Now that DC Hold’em 2012 is in full play, the cards are taking shape for everyone to see. As you might recall during the 2008 campaign, Obama told Ohio resident “Joe the Plumber” that we needed to “spread the wealth.” There were plenty of savvy political players who believed that he had just tipped his hand, yet the suckers remained at the table and checked their bets. Then...

    “I’m sure there are places that my budget is different than his, but we’re on the same page,” Romney told reporters at a press conference at an airport in Miami… Asked about how his plan differs from that of his running mate, Romney could not name specific differences on Monday. “Well, the items that we agree on I think outweigh any differences there may be. We haven’t gone through piece by piece and said, ‘Oh here’s a place where there’s a difference,’” Romney said. “I can’t imagine any two people even in the same party who have exactly the same...

    For President Barack Obama, it’s now personal. A new book cites Obama aides saying the president has a “genuine disdain” for Mitt Romney. “One factor made the 2012 grind bearable and at times even fun for Obama: he began campaign preparations feeling neutral about Romney, but like the former governor’s GOP opponents in 2008 and 2012, he quickly developed a genuine disdain for the man,” author Glenn Thrush writes in the soon-to-be released e-book “Obama’s Last Stand.” Thrush — a reporter for Politico, which published book excerpts Sunday – writes that Obama’s feelings for Romney are different from how he...

    Exactly one year after announcing her White House bid on "The Tonight Show," actress and comedian Roseanne Barr won the presidential nomination of the Peace and Freedom Party Saturday in Los Angeles. Barr's vice presidential running-mate is Cindy Sheehan, the mother of a soldier killed in Iraq and anti-war activist best known for her protest outside of then-President George W. Bush's Crawford, Texas, ranch. "Cindy and I are the ‘Throw the Bums Out’ ticket and the ‘Ballot Access’ ticket. The American people are sick and tired of this ‘lesser evil’ garbage they get fed every election year," said Barr before...

    American voters are growing more polarized and locked in their views as they witness a presidential campaign that is boosting negative feelings about both candidates, a Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll released Tuesday shows. The poll also finds a resurgence of anxiety about the economy as job growth has slowed, though President Barack Obama maintains his edge on several fronts despite that. Half of registered voters feel less optimistic about the direction of the economy, with just 27% predicting the economy would improve over the next year—a sharp drop in optimism from recent months. Still, coming in the wake of...

    ABC News president Ben Sherwood told staff today that last Friday's incorrect report by Brian Ross detracts from the network's otherwise excellent coverage of the Colarado theater shooting, network sources tell POLITICO. Sherwood's remarks, made on the network's daily editorial conference call, came the morning after Ross's report was picked up by late night comedians John Stewart and Stephen Colbert of Comedy Central, both of whom used Ross's erroneous suggestion of a Tea Party link to the Colorado theater shooting as fodder for their Monday night routines. On Monday's conference call,

Gary was a former governor of New Mexico. During his two terms in office, of an overwhelmingly Democrat state, he vetoed 750 bills and exercised thousands of line item vetos. He was so effective that his opposition referred to him as Governor Veto. He ran for the Republican nomination this year, but he was kept out of the early debates by CNN and CNBC rules, which were created to keep out minor candidates. As a result, he never attained the status...
