The legitimacy of elections
The worst possible outcome of the IRS scandal would see it growing large enough to call the legitimacy of the 2012 election into question. Some people reading this might think it’s already reached that point. Others would say it could never reach that point. There is a case to be made that the American system would resist such an outcome, in a much broader sense than merely | Read More »
The 2012 U.S. Electorate
The 2012 electorate made its choice… Free Stuff instead of Freedom. Oh, and maybe since America elected a black man as president for two terms, lib-progs will finally stop throwing their race cards around so much (yeah right, I know).

Dem playbook in action, voting machines stealing Colorado
Some of you may remember how much fun the vote count was in Florida back in 2000. It seemed destined to go on forever until the U.S. Supreme Court stepped in. More of you may remember 2004 the last time we had a brutal get out the vote fight down to the wire. The DNC’s 2004 Colorado Election Manual is a helpful reminder of what Democrats can be expected to do to try win President Obama’s reelection. Page 54 of the manual instructs:
“If no signs of intimidation techniques have emerged yet, launch a pre-emptive strike…”
With the presidential contest too close to call, Obama’s Justice Department dispatching hundreds of lawyers to 23 states and Democrats having 2,500 lawyers stationed across Ohio, 600 in Cuyahoga County alone, to “monitor” elections there are bound to be more shenanigans than we can imagine. Don’t forget Obama’s Attorney General decided not to go after the New Black Panther Party members who were intimidating voters in 2008.
So it is troubling that we are hearing numerous reports of voting machines recording votes intended for Romney as votes for Obama.
Colorado’s KRDO NewsChannel 13 reports that the Colorado Secretary of State’s Office is investigating after more than a dozen Pueblo voters say voting machines switched their pick from Mitt Romney to Barack Obama.
One Romney voter, told KRDO that when she hit the touchscreen for Romney, a check mark appeared next to Obama’s name. She said she asked for help to fix the problem, but still feels unsure about her vote:

Fact Checking CNN’s Fact Checkers
What is the value of fact checking if the fact-checkers don’t have a clue about the facts they’re checking? CNN’s fact checkers accuse Mitt Romney of playing fast and loose with the data. In reality, he displayed a masterful executive-level command of the issues. It’s President Obama they should worry about.

Ted Cruz at #RSG12 gives credit to Marco Rubio and bloggers
Promoted from the diaries Ted Cruz, fresh off his amazing win in the runoff for the Texas Republican Senate primary on Tuesday, was in Jacksonville, Florida on Friday for this year’s RedState Gathering. He gave a great speech to kick off the conference and was kind enough to sit down for a interview with me. I first met Cruz at CPAC 2011 and have followed | Read More »
WHOOPS: DCCC Lets 35 of 75 Oppo Books Slip Through “Back Door”
Promoted from diaries. Opposition research is the grist of stark contrasts, fine tuned messages, and yes, even negative campaign tactics. And usually it is a closely guarded secret. An opponent’s record matters in a race, and a good campaign will accumulate as much information as possible about an opponent and strategically time the release of that information to maximize their position and weaken their opponent. | Read More »
Good advice for Mitt Romney by Mickey Kaus.
To wit: show the American people that Mitt Romney’s just… a human being, like everybody else. Not that Romney should pretend to anything that he’s not. As Mickey put it: Note that this does not require that Romney show he’s a man of the people, down with NASCAR etc. No pork rinds are required. In fact, trying desperately to appear non-upperclass is likely to reinforce | Read More »

QotD, Eyes On The Prize in 2012 Edition.
Jim Geraghty makes the call for a light touch: [A] lot of Obama voters must be persuaded that they made the wrong choice in 2008, and that it isn’t their fault. I happen to agree with this, by the way. Satisfying as it may be to have people* admit that they were wrong and stupid and should have listened to the rest of us, my | Read More »
