    Here we go again – rationalizing the jobless figures

    Jan 20th – “lower than expected” at 404,000 A Labor Department official said the larger-than-expected decline was partly explained by jobless claims returning to trend after the big rise the earlier week. Translation: Last week’s rise was just a blip. This proves the Obama economy is working. Jan 27th – “higher than expected” at 454,000 A labor spokesman said snowstorms earlier in the month forced | Read More »

    START treaty and missile defense

    The Washington Post had a piece over the weekend entitled Obama faces fight over missile defense as he presses New START ratification. As seems to be the case so often with MSM “news”, it ends up as a combination of left-wing spin and outright fantasy. It starts out by saying that Obama wants so badly to be the first Democrat to sign an arms treaty | Read More »

    It all depends on what the meaning of “fair deal” is

    Reuters is reporting how the administration feels about today’s Government Motors IPO, which involves selling off less than half of the stake it got for $50B of taxpayer money. Ron Bloom, the administration’s point man on auto restructuring, told Reuters Insider ahead of GM trading on Thursday that the government wants a fair return for taxpayers on its $50 billion investment, but also wants to | Read More »

    GOP sides with Rangel and Waters

    No, that’s not a typo. When Charlie Rangel and Maxine Waters were charged by the House Ethics Committee, they both said they wanted to get this aired out ASAP. The Republicans on the House Ethics Committee agreed. There’s one slight problem. The Committee chair, Zoe Lofgren, has been busy doing the people’s work – like arranging for Stephen Colbert to testify before her immigration subcommittee | Read More »

    Obama releases selected census data to lay the groundwork for tax hikes on “the rich”

    We always heard about the “gap” between rich and poor during the Bush years – how it proved that he loved the rich and hated the poor. What has two years of complete Democratic control of Washington given us? A huge jump in that gap. The top-earning 20 percent of Americans — those making more than $100,000 each year — received 49.4 percent of all | Read More »

    We have proof that extending all tax rates would pass the Senate

    TPM reports that a Senate aide is saying that – barring a “stunning turn of events” – there will be no vote before the election on delaying the Jan 1st tax hikes. There is only one way to interpret this. The GOP would be in position to force a vote on a bill or an amendment that all rates be extended. Reid’s ideal scenario would | Read More »

    Coordinated insurance company attacks

    I was shocked – but not surprised – to read articles this week about insurance company changes regarding children. There was clearly a coordinated effort on the part of the left to vilify and lie about an outcome that anyone with a double-digit IQ would have foreseen. The message presented across all fronts was: EVIL INSURANCE COMPANIES WILL NO LONGER COVER YOUR CHILDREN!!!! when the | Read More »

    Breitbart pwns astroturfing ‘protesters’

    Dana Loesch captured it on video. Breitbart approaches a bunch of astroturfing protesters, going down the line and asking each one to cite an example of what their protest sign says. After a classic response you have to see to believe, these paid thugs get called away by their leader so that they can try to figure out Plan B. After the mob reforms, Breitbart | Read More »

    Lisa M. can “project” as well as any Democrat can

    Today she was whining yet again about Joe Miller’s campaign. “What happened in my particular race, you had the Tea Party Express, this California-based group, come in at the last minute in a campaign, run a mudslinging, smear – just a terrible, terrible – campaign with lies and fabrications and mischaracterizations,” Murkowski told CNN’s Candy Crowley in an exclusive interview. “They came in, dumped $600,000 | Read More »

    “It’s not about me, so I’ll stay in the news.” – Lisa Murkowski

    That’s about how it seems to be working out. You may have thought that things were settled in Alaska as of Labor Day, after she conceded the primary to Miller and after the Libertarian Party leaders met and decided they were happy with Haase. Well, not so fast…. Tue Sept 7: She says that she was ready to go, but too many people are telling | Read More »
