The Metrics in Favor of a Romney Win
“Soon they will go full on outrage pimp accusing the GOP of bad mouthing Barack Obama’s recovery. It’s all they’ll have — that and a staggering silence about their own plans for both recovery and reform.” A traveler from a distant planet landing in the United States right now would, if observing the Presidential election, presume the election was about a war on women or | Read More »
Gov. Brian Schweitzer (D, MT): having a polygamous family history is bad! …if you’re a Republican.
Via Hot Air comes this… I’m not sure what it is, besides pathetic. Anyway, Brian Schweitzer is apparently reveling in the curious freedom of being term-limited as the (Democratic) Governor of Montana; he decided to give The Daily Beast an earful, and I’m not entirely certain that Schweitzer has realized yet just how badly he stepped in it. Certainly badly enough that if he was | Read More »
#Cookiegate! …Wait, we’re not talking about federal regulation of school bake sales?
Because, you know, the federal government has abrogated that power for itself ever since the lame duck Congressional session in 2010. Under the bill, the secretary of agriculture over the next year will draft nutritional standards for all food sold outside the standard meal program, provided it’s during school hours and on school grounds. Hot dogs at nighttime football games would be in the clear. | Read More »
Comparing the Colombian Prostitute Scandal to Operation Fast & Furious.
So, we now what the priorities are when it comes to American law enforcement officials acting badly. Secret Service agents who patronize, then refuse to pay, Colombian prostitutes? People end up getting fired, investigated, and generally have their careers blighted, within days. DEA/DOJ officials who put cop-killing (and Mexican-civilian-killing) guns into the hands of Mexican narco-terrorist gangs? No firings. The bare minimum of non-Congressional investigations. | Read More »
Tech at Night: CISPA is fine, Lieberman-Collins is not. Let Verizon innovate. Make Netflix compete.
Yup, CISPA is still the top story. It will improve our security, which matters in an age of Chinese and Anarchist Internet attacks. And unlike Lieberman-Collins, Which is the bill being pushed in the Senate, no government power grab is involved. So the House is right to challenge the President’s push for Lieberman-Collins. Lungren’s PRECISE Act is another bill that would create no new regulations. | Read More »

It’s a POTUS-eat-dog-on-the-roof world out there…
Well. That entire ‘Romney’s dog on the car roof’ thing didn’t really go the way that Team Obama intended it to, did it? If you missed it, here’s the background: agents from Obama’s campaign team started up with that old story about the time that Mitt Romney drove cross-country with his dog in a carrying case that had been lashed to the top of the | Read More »
War on Dogs?
If you’re just tuning in, Ann Romney says that the Romney family dog liked riding on the roof of their car. The dog cage, Romney supporters say, had a windshield or something. The left has had a field day with this. But then the Romney campaign struck back. Barack Obama is a dog eater. Well, he was as a boy. The weed and cocaine tries | Read More »
Tech at Night: CISPA is a distraction from Lieberman-Collins
How harmless is CISPA? Despite irrational attacks by association, because we’re apparently supposed to think Republican bills bad, even though the Democrats in the Senate had kept PROTECT IP alive months before Lamar Smith brought SOPA to committee, CISPA has already has been modified to remove mention of copyright infringement. And yet the rage continues. I figured it out, though. The reason CISPA, a previously | Read More »

Obama: excuses rather than responsibility for his failed policies
“I’m not gonna make any excuses.” — Barack Obama The good folks at the RNC have released a video highlighting President Obama’s penchant for offering excuse after excuse rather take responsibility for his policy failures. Watch the “From ‘Hope’ to Hypocrisy: Excuses, Excuses” video: This is one more example of Obama saying one thing while doing another or trying to have things both ways. He | Read More »
Romney takes an early lead
Romney takes an early lead over President Obama. The FOX News poll released Friday, Romney leads Obama 46% to 44%. The Rasmussen Reports 2012 Daily Presidential Matchup Tracking poll has Romney leading Obama 48% to 43%. After Santorum suspended his presidential campaign on Monday, the Tuesday Rasmussen Matchup poll had Romney and Obama tied at 45% each. It remained tied through Wednesday. The Democrats’ war | Read More »
Tech at Night: CISPA is not SOPA until proven otherwise, Cybersecurity and copyright battles rage on
I’m seeing some real panicked shouting online about CISPA, a new bill that some are calling “the new SOPA.” It’s absurd. The bill may not be perfect. It could have flaws. But the argument being hammered against CISPA again and again is that it may be used against copyright infringers who abuse networks. So? The only reason to oppose that is if you wish to | Read More »

Barack Obama: STILL not paying women as much as men?
Via @mkhammer comes this latest example of Do As I Say, Not As I Line-Item Budget from the Obama administration. Executive summary: the Obama administration is allegedly paying its female staffers roughly 18% less than its male ones. I’m using the term ‘allegedly’ because the original report did not separate out staffers by gender, forcing “some assumptions to be made based on the employee names” | Read More »
The Buffett Rule Obfuscates the Real Debt Crisis
Over the past few weeks, Obama has exhibited the intensity of a Navy SEAL in his execution of class warfare. He is trying to convince everyone that those who earn 17% of Adjusted Gross Income, yet pay 36.7% of federal income taxes don’t pay anything, while those who pay little or no taxes shoulder the entire tax burden. Obama will continue to toss out misinformation | Read More »
Interesting: epithet-tossing Jewish liaison Dani Gilbert daughter of Obama bundlers.
Via Legal Insurrection comes this interesting story about DNC chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz and her rather embarrassing Jewish liaison Dani Gilbert. As you may remember, Ms. Gilbert had some unfortunate comments surface from her Facebook page – essentially, stuff from 2006 where she used admittedly self-derogatory religious/cultural epithets. At the time, I wondered when exactly DWS had hired the young woman – just on the | Read More »
Katie Pavlich Takes on Fast and Furious
Our sister company Regnery Publishing (we’re both owned by Eagle Publishing, Inc.) sent me a new book to read. I am really bad these days about not reading all the books I get in — sometimes up to a dozen a week from various publishers and authors. But this one caught my eye. Katie Pavlich, Townhall’s News Editor, has a book out entitled Fast And | Read More »
