The President always wanted to re-evaluate the census process?
No, I’m quite serious: since when? This is all part of this little article (Glenn Reynolds summed it up perfectly, by the way) about Sen. Gregg’s real value to this administration: MANCHESTER – Sen. Judd Gregg yesterday declined all comment on reports that the White House will strip him of his authority over the federal Census Bureau even before he becomes Secretary of Commerce.

Census Bureau Under White House Control
I don’t have a tin-foil hat and I don’t subscribe to Martian-Wear Daily, but this is about as dangerous to our individual freedom as anything I can imagine……….

This Guy for Secretary of Commerce
I had half-jokingly thought this guy would be the best pick. More on this later. President Barack Obama’s idea to put Republican New Hampshire Senator Judd Gregg to be the new Secretary of Commerce is nothing more than a blatantly obvious political ploy. Apparently, Obama doesn’t want someone to manage all of the agencies of the Commerce Department; he just wants a face to be | Read More »
Did we think Gregg would help make the 2010 census fair? Think again!
Does it get any more convenient than this? Obama gets rid of a sitting (R) Senator, and then takes away the one most positive thing he could do. What a deal! The director of the Census Bureau will report directly to the White House and not the secretary of Commerce, according to a senior White House official. The decision came after black and Hispanic leaders | Read More »
Obama lacks confidence in his Secretary of Commerce-designate
President Obama reveals that his sly attempt to appear bipartisan by nominating Republican Senator Judd Gregg to be Commerce Secretary is nothing more than pure partisan politics. In an effort to mollify ruffled feathers of “black and Hispanic leaders” about Gregg’s commitment to funding the 2010 census, Obama has already decided to clip the wings of his Secretary of Commerce-designate: The director of the Census | Read More »
***Updated*** AP-Yahoo poll is biased in seven “distinctly invalid ways relative to known demographics”
In DJ Drummond’s blog discussing the latest AP-Yahoo poll, he stated that the poll was “biased in six distinctly invalid ways relative to known demographics”. So I decided to look for myself and I found 7 worth noting. And I compared his “known demographics with census information. These are the results from Knowledge Networks who conducted the poll, matched with DJ Drummond’s analysis. I made | Read More »
New Michigan Census Data: Don’t Blame the Big 3
Cross-posted on Right Michigan at www.RightMichigan.com. We know we’ve got a pretty rough set of economic conditions here in Michigan. We have a broken budget, a corrupt and criminal leadership in Detroit, an ineffective (bordering on goofy) (lack of) leadership in Lansing and a Governor who seems more interested in shooting economic recovery in the foot than in giving it a welcoming home. Oh, and | Read More »
