Candy Crowley Admits Romney was Right on Libya
One of the most talked about moments in tonight’s debate was when Candy Crowley “fact checked” Mitt Romney on Libya. Make no mistake, this was an attempt to cover for President Obama, who has been bleeding on the issue all week. However, when confronted about it after the debate, she started to backtrack. Of course, I’m with RedState founder Joshua Treviño: PROTIP: Correct yourself onscreen, | Read More »
The Debate and Post Debate
Tonight, the President will try to come back from a bad debate performance against Mitt Romney one mile up in Denver with a town hall debate in Long Island, NY. This will be roughly at sea level, so the God-King should be okay altitude wise. The question is whether he’ll be okay attitude wise. The stakes are high and the Democrats are not confident. Personally, | Read More »
New Era Colorado May Have Violated Tax Exempt Status
In what appears to be a violation of its tax exempt status as an organization governed under section 501(c)3 of the IRS code, New Era Colorado dropped campaign literature advocating the election of specific candidates. The “Voting Guide” provided by New Era Colorado lists Democratic candidates in state and federal elections who have received the “thumbs up” from New Era Colorado.Read More »

The Colorado Observer broke the story of the possible Hatch Act violation today. Salazar, along with Sen. Udall, Sen. Bennet, and Gov. Hickenlooper participated in an RV tour of Colorado in support of President Obama’s reelection.Read More »
Another of Obama’s Cargo Cult Companies Fails

Wind turbrine Vestas announced 800 layoffs yesterday and A123, an battery manufacturer for electric cars, filed for bankruptcy today. Both have received hundreds of millions of dollars in corporate welfare in the form of tax credits, loan guarantees, and grants. They are not unique, they are merely the latest examples of what happens when the federal government tries to choose winners and losers in the marketplace.
New Sean Bielat (R CAND, MA-04) ad.
The major trouble with trying to talk about Joe Kennedy III as a candidate is… oh, heck, let the Sean Bielat campaign explain it: (Ad done by our own Ben Howe, btw) That’s it, in a nutshell: there’s nothing there except the ‘Kennedy’ and the ‘III.’ If this kid was named ‘Patrick Dolan’ or something then he wouldn’t be the Democratic nominee for MA-04 – | Read More »

Two Faces and The Same “Death By Ideology”
Maybe that Lasik Surgery I had a couple of years ago didn’t quite take. Maybe I just got shot in the face with a laser for nothing. I say that because I’m looking at both Louis Farrakhan and Paul Krugman and swear that the two men could be twins. OK, just kidding. The two men could be ideological twins. In fact, I respect Farrakhan more. At least when he hates your guts for being White and Middle Class, it comes from his heart and isn’t just his day job.
I notice the confluence between these two unlikely figures because each has recently taken to the media to express their despicable hate speech. Farrakhan, I reiterate, extemporaneously speaks his deracinated mind and from his shriveled heart and his iniquitous soul. Krugman, however, writes carefully. He selects his words to reflect the malice towards individuals like myself. He has pickled his views in this hatred the way Korean grocers prepare a jar full of Kim Chi.Read More »
Tech at Night: Barack Obama really is terrible on Cybersecurity, the ITU, and everything else.
Two points on cybersecurity tonight. The first is that Harry Reid and Barack Obama aren’t on the same page. The latter is still working toward a (probably illegal) executive order, while the former is talking about trying again to pass the rejected Lieberman-Collins Cybersecurity Act. Meanwhile we backers of the Marlin Stutzman campaign have been vindicated, as Dan Coats is siding with Harry Reid on this, the Internet Kill Switch bill, with the IKS removed but everything else left intact.
With Republicans like that, who needs Democrats?Read More »
Hillary Clinton Prepares to See Underside of Obama Bus
I do hear that President Obama will let Hillary Clinton tour a tire factory this week so she can at least match a dress to the tire tread, but one way or the other, Hillary Clinton is now going under the Obama bus. Joe Biden began the effort to throw Hillary under the bus in the debate Thursday night. He said the White House never | Read More »
Thomas Peterffy and the Freedom to Succeed
Thomas Peterffy is the founder of Interactive Brokers, an online brokerage firm. But he wasn’t always. In 1956, Thomas Peterffy, unable to speak English, fled Hungary as the Iron Curtain was lowering on Eastern Europe. By the time Peterffy left Hungary, the communists were in charge. Around 350,000 people, many intellectuals and politicians, were purged by the communists. In 1956, Hungary went through a revolution | Read More »
Obama Imperils Another Potential Ally
Read More »
Instead of fostering democracy, the Obama regime has carried out a strategy of appeasement when confronted with opposition from totalitarians. Vladimir Putin has effectively broken Obama to his will and Obama and Ukraine is about to be drawn into Russia’s orbit.
Have Obama and Biden Overinvested In The Middle Class Tax Argument?
Every campaign involves strategic choices about where to attack your opponent. One of the major points of attack leveled by the Obama-Biden campaign against Mitt Romney is the Democrats’ claim that the Romney-Ryan tax plan would raise taxes on the middle class. There is evidence that this attack has done a good deal of damage to Romney, but it is beginning to look as if | Read More »
Roosevelt (T) and Jackson are History’s Guide To Solving “Too Big To Fail”
We can statistically quantify “Too Big To Fail” in a number of different ways. George Will of the Washington Post is man familiar with the uses (and perhaps the nefarious uses) of quantitative data. He tells us 5 banks hold assets equal to 60% of the GDP. The top 10 banks hold 61% of all commercial banking assets; they only had 26% 20 years ago.
Will’s basically Conservative bent leads him to not be fond of the Dodd-Frank Act inflicted upon American Industry by the current Obama Regime. I certainly agree and sympathize with this point of view. However, not liking Dodd-Frank is one thing, getting rid of it and the systematic problems that made its overreach tenable is a taller order than merely quantified complaining. To actually dismantle the TBTF Empire and the implicit guarantee it enjoys via Dodd-Frank, it may help us to indulge in some Presidential History involving too great men. President Andrew Jackson foresaw and attempted to prevent this problem. President Theodore Roosevelt solved TBTF in some industries other than banking.Read More »
The NYT needs to read *itself* on the Syrian rebel situation.
Because first it’s writing things like this: “Most of the arms shipped at the behest of Saudi Arabia and Qatar to supply Syrian rebel groups fighting the government of Bashar al-Assad are going to hard-line Islamic jihadists, and not the more secular opposition groups that the West wants to bolster, according to American officials and Middle Eastern diplomats,” and then it visibly wonders why it | Read More »

Obama Campaign Confronts Coal Miners With Lies

With its false attack on mine workers who support Mitt Romney, the Obama regime has increased its reputation as a petty, thin skinned ineptocracy who would resort to political thuggery if they could figure out how to do it.
A PSA for executive branch bureaucrats.
If you are a member of this or any other government agency, please take this test. Please look around your desk Monday and see if you can see anything that will make you go Man, if Darrell Issa ever hears about this one then the fecal matter is going to impact the oscillating blade.Read More »
