ClimateGate! More at the Door, There's More at the Door!
The tale is told by Clive Crook...."In my previous post on Climategate I blithely said that nothing in the climate science email dump surprised me much. Having waded more deeply over the weekend I take that back.The closed-mindedness of these supposed men of science, their willingness to go to any lengths to defend a preconceived message, is surprising even to me. The stink of intellectual corruption is overpowering. And, as Christopher Booker argues, this scandal is not at the margins of the politicised IPCC [Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change] process. It is not tangential to the policy prescriptions emanating from what David Henderson called the environmental policy milieu. It goes to the core of that process."
Nuff said....but, if you wish, you can read his entire post HERE!!!
Finger-Waggin Time! - Obama sez "Unacceptable"....Does Absolutely Nothing!
Nothing like "Dithering"
to control rogue governments.....Works NONE-OF-THE-TIME!
This President is truly CLUELESS!
We Cannot Dispute The Data....It Was Thrown OUT!
MY GOD! These idiots believe we will accept their analysis of GW given the fact they "manipulated" the data, and they also have managed to LOSE the original data?????
The only idiots here are the crowd from England/USA/etc. who feel we are so out-of-touch as to accept their information.
They are truly DOLTS!
Worst Scientific Scandal of OUR Generation???
& Then some......
The scene is changed forever.....Obama or not, the scene is not going to be influenced by "The One"......the credibility is lost.....the "consensus" isn't any more.
Global warming is a myth now....until somebody of irrefutable reputation can make a NEW case! That is not likely as the facts (data) make this an impossible task!
GW is gone......AlGore is gone....though he'll NEVER
I personally, love it....I have FROM THE START said it is a farce......
I'm A Believer....Well, Not So Much!!!
YEPPERS....NOT A Working solution folks!
Golly....could you ever guess?
2-3rds?????? That speaks volumes, and continues the march AWAY from The Obamassiah!
Kill The "BILLS!".....
Charles Krauthammer is SPOT ON AND DELIGHTFULLY ACCURATE IN HIS DENUNCIATION OF THE CURRENT HEALTHCARE BILLS!
The DEMs seem bent upon a "we are gonna lose the majority in 2010 anyway, so make hay with total government control while we still can" theme. Can they? will they? who knows, but the public is already incensed, and a LOT of DEMs are feeling the heat.
Should be interesting as Reid/Pelosi/Obama attempt yet another game of subterfuge and deception instead of the "transparency and openness" they promised.
Sign Of Recovery? - WTF Is FOX Doing?
FOXNews, doing its best impression of the MSM?
The "Sign Of Recovery" headline above leads the current FOX article, from AP of course, on new jobless claims.....Subhead..."...the lowest level in over a year!"
One must read down the article to paragraph 4 to find this little nugget: "Analysts cautioned against reading too much into the sharp drop in unemployment claims, noting that part of the improvement reflected large seasonal adjustment factors, which smooth out changes that normally occur at certain times of the year. Excluding seasonal adjustments, claims rose. That's normal at this time of year when a large number of construction workers face layoffs because of worsening weather conditions."
Ah Ha! So what they are saying, in effect, the numbers are all normal, not really unexpectedly lower, and nothing should be made of it.
I expect this of AP....Not so much of FOX.
Complete falsification in the headlines with a later restatement changing the headline completely. What's the problem FOX? Holiday editors on-the-job already.
For those strong of stomach the complete story is HERE!
My Mind Is Made UP....Don't Confuse Me With FACTS! - ClimateGate
The internet is awash with stories, not done by the MSM, which are beginning to show the depths to which alleged scientists have gone to "fix" data to show Global Warming. My readers will know that for as long as this blog has been online (2004) I have maintained that the truth was being withheld.
The best summary of this current situation I have read is from Real Clear Politics where Robert Tracinski states:"For more than a decade, we've been told that there is a scientific "consensus" that humans are causing global warming, that "the debate is over" and all "legitimate" scientists acknowledge the truth of global warming. Now we know what this "consensus" really means. What it means is: the fix is in.This is an enormous case of organized scientific fraud, but it is not just scientific fraud. It is also a criminal act. Suborned by billions of taxpayer dollars devoted to climate research, dozens of prominent scientists have established a criminal racket in which they seek government money-Phil Jones has raked in a total of £13.7 million in grants from the British government-which they then use to falsify data and defraud the taxpayers. It's the most insidious kind of fraud: a fraud in which the culprits are lauded as public heroes. Judging from this cache of e-mails, they even manage to tell themselves that their manipulation of the data is intended to protect a bigger truth and prevent it from being "confused" by inconvenient facts and uncontrolled criticism.The damage here goes far beyond the loss of a few billions of taxpayer dollars on bogus scientific research. The real cost of this fraud is the trillions of dollars of wealth that will be destroyed if a fraudulent theory is used to justify legislation that starves the global economy of its cheapest and most abundant sources of energy.This is the scandal of the century. It needs to be thoroughly investigated-and the culprits need to be brought to justice."
Amen! - And, while we wait for justice, let us continue to post comments on naysayers articles to indicate our displeasure with the lies, cheating and fraud which involves our tax dollars!
Support....Who Needs THEIR Support!!!!
Yeah, Yeah, Yeah.....
Ya gotta love these cartoonists!
Walpin Firing - The Gift That Keeps On, Keepin On!
Robert Stacy McCain details the scandal still blooming!
I said many months ago that this one, handled by a rookie Obama team like rookies, would come back to haunt them.
Rich Lowry posts the true tale.....
Are we, as a voting people, unable to stop this travesty?
I hope not!
Instahtpundit Gets It Right!
YEPPERS, Insty Has The Stuff
The evidence is overwhelming......Obama is clueless, and amateurish!
Man, we need to get this idiot contained....but that involves a united GOP.....Well, we are in trouble!
Walpin Firing.....OOPSIE for the DEMs!
THE TALE IS TOLD1
Thus we find the DEMs, once again, creating fiction as fact!
TAX THE RICH, Times 3-4-5, etc.
Lets TAX THE RICH for Health Care; Lets TAX THE RICH for This, and Lets TAX THE RICH for everything else.....
The Democrat theme is palpable, real and they really, really feel we can solve ALL problems just by taxing those who make $250,000 or more.
They are I-N-S-A-N-E!!!!!
The problem is the "Golden Goose"
has nothing left to give. The "Rich", those who make $250,000 or more are already paying a HUGE % of the taxes. They are NOT making money as profit because the taxes are so steep they cannot profit.....well, unless they CUT JOBS, CUT GROWTH, etc.
How can the Dimocrats not recognize this???? They DO......They DO!!!!!
They simply do not CARE!
Their theme reverberates among the folks who enjoy benefits of the programs which allow them to exist without WORKING!
Until the majority....those of us who support the minority who LOVE tax-supported programs....actually begin to vote our opposition to funding MILLIONS of folks who simply accept and live by these "entitlements"...we will be allowing the DEMs to control our lives!
The major problem? We are nearing the point where the "entitlement" group outnumbers the actual taxpayers.....then we are T-O-A-S-T! Cause we are destined to FAIL....we will collapse under a debt load NO NATION can endure.
We are NOT going to survive unless a HUGE # of folks realize our situation and change the course now underway for this great country.
I am scared!
Why "NO" On HealthCare - By The Numbers!
1. Senator Orin Hatch listed the reasons why before the completely tuned-out Democrat majority who wrote this massive legislation behind closed doors with no GOP input.....
So here are the numbers that Orrin Hatch presented on the floor of the Senate:
- 0 - the number of provisions prohibiting the rationing of health care.
- 0 - the number of government-run entitlement programs that are financially sound over the long-term.
- 10.2 percent - our national unemployment rate, the highest in 26 years.
- 70 - total number of government programs authorized by the bill.
- 1,697 - times the Secretary of Health and Human Services is given authority to determine or define provisions in this bill.
- 2,074 - total pages in this bill.
- 2010 - the year Americans start paying higher taxes to pay for this bill
- 2014 - the year when this bill actually starts most of the major provisions of this bill
- $6.8 million - cost to taxpayers per word
- $8 billion - the total amount of new taxes on Americans who do not buy Washington-defined health care.
- $465 billion - Cuts in Medicare at a time when it faces a $38 trillion unfunded liability to finance more government spending.
- $494 billion - total amount of new taxes in this bill
- $2.5 trillion - the real cost of the bill
- $12 trillion - our total national debt"
2. The newest indicator where this healthcare debacle will lead us is right in front of the eyes of voters...particularly women.....They have already been told about how and when to have breast exams and pap smears....by a panel which included NO breast surgeons, NO Radiologists, etc.
When Sebelius said the guidelines were not law, she lied....she should have said not law YET. The bill imposing this travesty on women is already before the Senate. These guidelines would become law.....what will follow?
The Vote Was FIXED....The Result Is Dubious!
The DEMs who, at the last moment, "Caved" to support moving the Obama/Pelosi/Reid Healthcare bill to a format of "Debate" are just folks who sought and reaped rewards for their delay in accepting the move. Lincoln and Landrieu love the star-qualities of taking LOTS of $ just to vote the bills out for debate.......
NOW the serious debate begins.
Can the DEMs offer these folks (including Ben Nelson) enough to make them vote for certain-death in their next election?
But, the politics of DEM vs GOP is a strange thing.
Will the GOP be able to maintain their complete control over GOP Senators??? Who knows...
It All Is Based Upon Whose OX is "GORE'd".....
The man knows nothing except his "Oscar-Winning" views of Global Warming....assisted greatly by the complicit Uber-Liberal Media!
However, his views are at the least suspect.....and potentially, completely out-of-sync with reality.
Yet he drives on....allowing NO debate on his statements, and the obviously-flawed data/reporting he used to prepare his film.
His statement seems to be "How Dare You Question ME!"
He is The "AlGore"
....all-knowing, all-seeing, and completely oblivious to any form of facts which maight question his hypothesis!
I have been a Vice President....Thus YOU may not question ME!
This lout is completely insane if he believes there is anything left of his GW scam! The cards have fallen, and given the recent proof vis-a-vis the emails from supporters who acknowledge they are lying to influence the GW debate, we now know there is NO truth to the lie.
Gore is Wrong!
GWers are Wrong!
Long-live Gore.....as a has-been VP and Presidential Candidate!
It's The Economy Stupid!....Well, Plus The Debt....& Plus The Lack of ANY Success in International Negotiations!
YEPPERS Folks, we have a PrezBO who wishes one thing, and achieves another.
He speaks to this, and achieves that! REGULARLY!
His message is one of tree-stump mentality, and constant campaign rhetoric......just NOTHING in real, substantive achievement.
He speaks well......IS THAT AN ACHIEVEMENT for a President????
I think NOT!
Bush DID SOMETHING! When faced with difficult decisions, he decided....and he took action.
PrezBO dithers, un-decides, and then at the last moment speaks out, "We must abandon all we have spoken of, and begin again...."
The man is an idiot who feels he is "The Chosen One".....He is Carter X 10......
OMG...we have to live with this man until Nov 2012?????
Ration HealthCare????....You Are With Us Even NOW!!!
OMG!!! Just read!Mammograms????
Folks, if you, as an informed person do not see the trend of government toward restricting/controlling exams of all types by the evidence of these two findings....YOU ARE Asleep!
The Obamaites are shooting themselves in the foot...perhaps committing some form of self-suicide.
Well, if the electorate still control A-N-Y form of the Congressional activity!
That is the question. Polls suggest the popular vote today is WAY-WAY opposed to the ObamaCare/PelosiCare bill....and the DEMs charge on as if they have a mandate (you know, the one they imagined when elected....) They are going to enact whatever they can to further the cause of Socialization of Medicine in the USA.....They know they will lose in 2010....they do not care....they will live with the results knowing they can expand the healthcare objective in future elections. ONCE they have control, they will inch closer and closer to Socialized Medicine...
That is their goal!
The FACTS IS....ObamaCare Costs US ALL!!!!
YEPPERS! We gots COSTS!
The Obamaites are lost in rhetoric....devoid of facts!
O M G.....The PrezBO is Declining in support?????
Yes he is both vulnerable, and out-of-touch with reality!
PrezBO is not "THE ONE" presumed by the LIBs....
Obamas-Slamma!!!!! - The PrezBO HealthCare Plan is EXPENSIVE!!!!
From The Line.....
"The additional claim touted by Senate Democrats -- that the bill will reduce the deficit by $130 billion over the first 10 years -- is also coming under fire as "fantasy."
Republicans have countered the CBO estimate with a figure of their own: $2.5 trillion, an estimate that comes out of the Senate Budget Committee minority's analysis of Reid's plan.
"This is a lousy bill that's going to cost American taxpayers like mad for the rest of our lives," Sen. Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, a fierce critic of the health care legislation, told Fox News on Thursday.
Part of the problem with the CBO estimate is that it covers a 10-year period from 2010-2019 -- however, the health care reform plan is not fully implemented until 2014. That means the federal government is raking in billions in taxes and savings for the first four years without spending on the new program. The $2.5 trillion estimate is for the 10-year window starting in 2014, after implementation of the program begins.
Under the timetable in the CBO estimate, the government spends $9 billion in the first four years, but $838 billion in the last six when the overhaul goes into full force.
The revenue significantly ramps up in the latter half of the decade to keep pace with spending, but the nearly $100 billion in deficit savings in the first four years is not necessarily in the piggy bank either.
Democrats are holding up estimates that show the second decade of health care reform yields even more deficit reduction."
OF COURSE THEY ARE!!!! They have ZERO tolerance for anything which shows the "actual" $ value of any plan they espouse!
The DEMs are into saving THEMSELVES....Not the party itself!
Each and every DEM CongressCritter is involved in making themselves electable....BUT while they try to enact HORRENDOUS legislation.....Can we say....OOPS????
It is not going to happen folks!
Andrew Cline writes all the words I wish I had....
There is no end to the descent from high to that of lackey by this man, and the arrogance is almost visible as he walks and waves.
Ana Marie Cox Reviewed Palin's New Book....The One She Didn't Read!
Patterico reports on the debacle:"I cannot claim to have read Ana Marie Cox’s entire review of Sarah Palin’s new book. I stopped cold when I read this line: I cannot claim to have completely read “Going Rogue” — I had to skim the last 150 pages (or more than one-third). I only got the thing into my hands late Monday afternoon with a deadline of early evening.I had to skim the rest of Cox’s five-paragraph “review.” Something about smoking, I think."
Palin wrote a book and the (MEDIA)
crowd went wild!
Reports of Liberal complaints about Conservative book sales exceeding their own are, by the way, true!
875 Congressional Districts.....In 57 States???
Actually there are just 435 Congressional Districts. However, in the world of PrezBO & his elite, elitist corp of trained idiots, they have added 440 NEW DISTRICTS!It is ALL right there in the report on Jobs Saved or Created under the (Less-Than) Stimulus bill.
At least they have those 7 new states PrezBO found
in which to park those districts. I am wondering where they are going to stack the double-sized House....Maybe they could work two shifts, and spend twice as much money. Getting elected should be no problem cause 440 districts have no voters. One write-in in a closet designated as the new district should suffice for election.
The comedic possibilities are just endless under this administration....and yet, the AP is off to investigate Sarah Palin's new book with 11 reporters.....Gotta get that dirt. Just a shame the AlGore book on (supposed) Global Warming......er, Climate Change.....didn't get one-quarter that much AP attention. Guess that was because he was not a conservative presidential potential.
New 12 TRILLION DEBT LEVEL reached!For my friends who support Obama/DEMs and those pesky big spender GOPs.....You, your spouse, and each one of the children, grandchildren, etc. owe just a shade under $39,000.
Obama Bow-WOW!!! It's NOT Tradition!
Our GOP Friends at U Conn clear this up emphatically!
Another Obama gaff....intentional or due ignorance????
Embarrassing to me/us!
Paul Mirengoff at Powerline in his post "Come Back In A Half Hour & I'll Give You Another Look At It!"
:"During a party scene in the movie "Monkey Business," Groucho Marx spots a waiter carrying a drink, but the waiter tells him the drink is for the guest of honor. Groucho pulls out a dollar bill and says to the waiter: "See this?" The waiter responds by giving Groucho the drink, whereupon Groucho pulls the dollar away and says: "Come back in a half hour and I'll give you another look at it."
Substitute Russian President Dmitry Medvedev for Groucho, and economic sanctions against Iran for the dollar bill, and you get a pretty good sense of the farce being played out at the expense of President Obama -- or, more precisely, the United States -- these days.
Not long ago, around the time Obama made concessions to the Russians regarding missile defense in Europe, Medvedev "dangled the dollar," making it sound as if Russia might support new sanctions against Iran. A bit later, he seemed to pour cold water on the idea, stating that such sanctions are typically counterproductive.
Now, with Medvedev scheduled to meet Obama in Singapore tomorrow, the Russian president is giving his American counterpart "another look" at sanctions. Last week he told a German magazine:
We wouldn't want this to end with international sanctions, because sanctions, as a rule, take us in a very complex and dangerous direction. But if there is no movement forward, nobody is ruling out such a scenario.
And now a Russian newspaper has quoted Medvedev as saying that Russia is "100 percent ready" to back new sanctions. All Medvedev needs is another free drink and another "half hour."
That would be hilarious....except it is TRUE!
Obama is a sad, delusional man whose own ego keeps him from a reality check. We must keep him in the one-term category. He continues to live in his own world populated by Marxists & Socialists, and considers his election a mandate to impose those beliefs upon us all....this despite the fact he ran as a centrist....hiding his true agenda for the most part.
On Being RINO....& Watching Your Support Evaporate!
Jennifer Rubin explains that the DEM theme of GOP Left-leaners being popular is W-R-O-N-G!
The coming 1 to 3 years is NOT going to be a good time to be RINO, or left-leaning as a member of the GOP. It is Conservative time, and it appears more and more the conservative element WILL step forward and cast out such RINOs with no hesitation what-so-ever.
Being GOP is no longer the catcher-of-votes....being Conservative is!
GM Lied on Stimulus...1/3rd of Cars Made Outside USA!
Stimulus-Spendulus....we got your money & we lied...so what?
Ah yes, the truth about the stimulus continues to be unveiled....another major reason the Spend-o-crats have to RUSH
HealthCarelessness through before more people become aware.
Where is 2010? Not near enough as long as Scary Harry Reid and his spend/tax/spend/tax compatriots are at the helm and have the nuclear option of a 51 vote majority.
We need to make our CongressCritters even more aware we WILL
turn them out next October if they pass ObamaCare and/or Cap & Trade....
The $300 Billion Lie! - Courtesy of Nancy Pelosi

Come on 2010!
BOW-WOW....PrezBO Goes LOW to Salute Japanese Emperor!
This Idiot BOWs to the Japanese Emperor!
He has bowed to the leader of Islamic countries who have birthed the terrorists who attacked our sovereign soil....he has now bowed to the leader of the folks who initiated WWII in the Pacific. Who else does he owe allegiance to?????
Who the Hell elected you, Mr. Apologist?
Apparently lots of folks who now would not!
It Is About ME!!!!!.....Yes, ME!!!!!
Obama cannot speak to anything unless IT IS ABOUT HIM!
This man's ego is only exceeded by his lack of ability and knowledge!
DIVE-DIVE!!!! CBO Tells PrezBO Deficit Gloom!
The "Boy Who Would Be King" is off to Japan to bow and scrape before The Emperor. Meanwhile he has QUADRUPLED The US Deficit in ONE YEAR!
Hopey and Changey enough for you?
This laughing-stock of the world leaders is proving once again that appeasement WILL NOT do anything. AND, at his current pace, we will be a socialist economy within his 1st (and hopefully only) term.
Hopey-Changey Guy has once again shown his mighty deductive powers in a swift pair of non-decisions.
First, following literally months of dithering on Afghanistan, and meetings by the score with military top leaders, civilian authorities, etc. and nearing a final decision his in-the-field military leader asked be made quickly....WHOA! "I don't like what I see, so we are going to begin again again." Back to square one. That was a really tricky, masterful decision to both quell the furor of the home folks over his lack of decisiveness and at the same time remind those other world leaders who are working with us that PrezBO does not have their backs.
Then, he is now planning a use of TARP funds....you know, the ones we are printing as we go....to help curb the growing deficit. That is a brilliant solution...It gives us both the use of the funds to create a stable business community for perpetuation of the deficit, and at the same time sets up the need for a new round of TARP and/or (Lack of)Stimulus funding.
This guy hits a home run......er, I mean strikes out each time he steps to the plate. What a leader!
VETS DAY! - A Salute!
I've written before and saluted a Father who carried with him shrapnel, and three purple hearts, to his grave. Paul DeLand, Sr., 1st Lt. USArmy, Ret. You lived on for many years after WWII, but you paid with costs not always identifiable. You are remembered by a proud son."In Flanders fields the poppies blowBetween the crosses, row on row,That mark our place; and in the skyThe larks, still bravely singing, flyScarce heard amid the guns below.We are the dead. Short days agoWe lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,Loved, and were loved, and now we lieIn Flanders fields.Take up our quarrel with the foe:To you from failing hands we throwThe torch; be yours to hold it high.If ye break faith with us who dieWe shall not sleep, though poppies growIn Flanders fields.— Lt.-Col. John McCrae (1872 - 1918)"
RIP, My Father.....your work is done; little remembered, and mostly unknown due a steadfast belief by you that the horrors you saw should never be carried forward to the next generation.
Duke (Paul DeLand, II)
Voters Opposed To ObamaCare by 54-42 Margin
BUT This idiot who claims GOP status votes FOR the ObamaCare bill....JUST READ & Believe there is an idiot born every minute....and some get elected to office.
Welcome to the world of reality, Mr. Cao....
May you last as long as the 2 year election to office you had.......BUT no more.
You sir, are an idiot!
JOBS SAVED!!!!! - Obama Magic Saves More Jobs Than There Are!!!!
Okey-Dokey...We employ 290, but we saved 470 jobs!!!
ObamaMagic at its finest!
They just keep saving imaginary jobs.....& YOU Want them to handle YOUR Healthcare????
NONE....Obama Stimulus "0".....Etc. To get a much more clear picture...just click on the pic.....
Goollee!!!! The picture is wrong, Mr. PrezBO......We could not be THAT Bad!!!!!
AARP Endorsing ObamaCare....BY WHOSE VOTE???
AARP sez their 40 million seniors endorse ObamaCare.....
Just one small problem....They N-E-V-E-R asked their 40 million members what they thought!!!!
AARP did not poll members.....they did not listen when members heard their rhetoric and screamed them down in member sessions....they have never asked their member what they actually thought....
GOLLEE.....Could we have a problem with claiming our membership supports ObamaCare when they have NEVER been asked???? Not by AARP statements.
Membership-shmembership....who gives a rat's pattotie? If you is a member you WILL ACCEPT what WE decide!
Speak for yourself Jack......I am an AARP member; so is my wife....That membership will NEVER be renewed.....I hope I am joined by millions who feel as I do.... disenfranchised ....disowned....left with NO VOICE....but claimed as part of the AARP endorsement. You have come to represent the goal of making BILLIONS in Govt. Insurance while ignoring your membership.
My question AARP........How DID YOU GET MY VOTE IN FAVOR????
How did you determine MY intent and opinion?
I have hundreds of friends who have been AARP members.....N-O-N-E have ever been asked by you what they felt about ObamaCare or any other measure you ave ever endorsed.
Maybe if you feel you can speak for us without asking us, we need to find another place to use our energy/force/vote. & $$$$$$$
You know....one where they actually ASK US what we think!!!
I know my Duchess & I will NEVER AGAIN
fund, pay, or support ANY AARP position.
AARP....a Day Late & A Dollar Short!...& OUT OF TOUCH WITH SENIORS!
The news out today is that after months of espousing ObamaCare, but denying they were doing so, AARP is finally going to fess up openly, and endorse the now-delayed/doomed ObamaCare.
Meanwhile, their membership is fleeing like never before....this writer and his spouse included. We are tired of the AARP Liberal bent, even as they deny same and still work the Lib side like a mechanic.
I get NOTHING from AARP in discounts, representation....(REPRESENTATION????) etc. that i cannot get from a dozen other organizations.
AARP is N-O-T an organization in favor of we retireds. or about-to-be-retireds. They are, instead, a business conglomerate, using government influence to make BILLIONS!
AARP's time is past...they simply have not yet realized it.
Reality check coming folks! Sometimes your organizational skills exceed your organization. I thought the AARP was an organization to help seniors.....My Bad!....They are an organization to help themselves. I sent emails, letters, etc. for years to the AARP....my question....Where do you get these "mandate positions" on issues? I have NEVER been asked by the AARP my opinion. I have never been asked to comment upon the issues we face, or the decisions the AARP makes. In fact, after an email challenge to my friends on line (there are hundreds of us from my hometown alone) I found that NOT ONE of my fellow retirees had ever been asked to offer an opinion, expression of support, or any other item by the AARP.
Kind of makes you wonder W-H-O is making these decisions; these position-statements, etc.It ain't me babe!
From the sound of the Obamabots reporting, we have saved more jobs than possible....
Well, at least in Chicago where they have saved more jobs than they have.....????Instapundit is on this like stink on wet socks!
Actually he does it much better than wet socks. He is, after all...Insty...our guy on top of more than anyone else in the blogosphere (Am I still allowed to use that old word?)
Obama "Magic" Gone!
Professor Glenn Reynolds (Instapundit) DETAILS THE CHANGE IN THE N Y POST!
That is by far the most intuitive analysis of the change I have read. The mood swing began even before the elections yesterday when it became apparent to many, including a large number of DEMs, that the day would not go well for them. Timelines for healthcare are suddenly not fixed....probably, as Glenn stated, most of the rest of Obama's agenda is also sidelined...at least until after the 2010 votes.
"Created or Saved Jobs!"....Primer of Lies!
Not a clue for the public....but the Obama team sets the rules for all jobs using stimulus money....Patterico details the shamwow of DEM/PrezBO politics!
You just had to know it. & in most other areas the only job "growth" is gummint jobs!
ObamaCare..."The Worst Bill Ever!"...WSJ
SOoooo...Is this clear enough for you????
Tell your Congresscritter to vote N-O!!!! Period!
NEWT's BLOG Slammed With Negative Comments!
The top of Newt's Blog site....
For the meat and potatoes you need only read the 1st 100 or so comments on his endorsement of Hoffman following Scozzafava bail-out and DEM endorsement...He gets a trip to the wood shed....maybe a permanent trip!
DIVE-DIVE-DIVE...PrezBO Doing a Full Gainer In Polls!
That's gotta hurt....
Maybe Rush is RIGHT??? Amateur on-the-job-training just is not getting the job done.
DRJ at Patterico's Pontifications has details of the potential for Presidential Embarrassment tomorrow!
Sounds good to me.....
Boeing has announced their new 787 construction line will be built in NC!!!!
Yeppers, the goose that laid Washington State's golden eggs is not going to build anything else in the state. Instead they opted for a more employer-friendly state....North Carolina. Unions have a LOT less clout, and the taxes are better for the company. The State of Washington had been warned for years by Boeing.
Years ago (more than 30) I worked for Caterpillar Tractor in their East Peoria, IL plant. I was in training to become a PR hack for one of their plants, but that entailed 1st working in the actual plant. I still remember the standard phrase of all the dedicated union workers...."It ain't my tractor!"....the problem.....well, of course it was their tractor. If it was inferior, cost too much, or could not be produced by a striking work force the sale went to Komatsu!
Unions, to my way of thinking, are still the biggest stumbling block to our industrial efforts and success in world markets. Of course, they are aided by states whose friends are unions, not employers. The industrial belt is becoming the jobless belt....rapidly!
Speaking of RINOs.....How's This Suit You Newt baby?
RINO Scozzafava has now endorsed her NY 23 Democratic rival over the Independent conservative Hoffman who derailed her campaign.
The RNC dumped $900,000 into the Scozzafava campaign....Newt Gingrich ran to NY and extolled her virtues, despite her adherence to most of the liberal (Democrat) positions.
A number of well-known folks from the conservative side supported Hoffman....Palin, Pawlenty, and more. When it became apparent that Hoffman would make her campaign untenable, the RINO became a new adherent to the "Let me jump ship" philosophy. Now all the RNC & Newt have left is an empty larder, and a RINO campaigning for her Democrat opponent.
Let me hear your explanation now Newt. Guess maybe Hoffman was right to jump in. Guess the GOP establishment still has not gotten the message, but this might make the 1st baby-steps toward realization a little easier for them.
DukeUPDATE: Professor Glenn Reynolds at Instapundit HAS A LOT MORE LINKS!!!
Charlie Crist (RINO-FL Gov) Panics & Goes Amateur Attacking on Rubio!
Charlie Christ, (RINO-I love to Hug Obama!) is off in never, never land....RedState covers the amateur attacks....
I have been onboard with Marco Rubio from the start. Christ is no R & certainly not a conservative. When, if ever, will the GOP establishment realize they are completely out-of-touch with their conservative base? Only after they get beaten about the head & shoulders soundly several more times.
