Altitude And Distance Vs. Street-Level Reality On Libya
Two women from two different perspectives have divergent points of view on why the attack of the US Embassy in Benghazi, Libya has remained news. One woman, Obama’s Mouth of Sauron, Stephanie Cutter, approaches the issue from altitude and distance. Another woman, the mother of the now departed Sean Smith, wants to know how her son died, and why the US Government doesn’t give her answers. The contrast is telling. It tells us just how far away the Obama Administration is from the actual concerns of the Little Guy they so piously claim to serve and defend.
Jeff Emanuel gave Red State readers a good description of Stephanie Cutter’s spin. The spin shows an obdurate lack of basic human empathy for the dead. It shows just how utterly self-preservationist the administration has been concerning the events of September 11, 2012 in Benghazi Libya. Cutter is shown below claiming the issue only has traction because Mitt Romney is exploiting it.

A life-long Democrat asks, “what happened to my party?!”
These words were spoken to me this morning during my annual checkup by my optometrist, a life-long, Chicago North Shore, Jewish, liberal Democrat. I’ve been going to “Dr. K” for at least 20 years, and we never let a checkup pass without discussing politics. He knows my background, and three years ago shared with me that his son was interning for a Republican Congressman in | Read More »
The Petulant Circus Clown Drowns Out any Substance
Was Joe Biden on drugs or did he use Al Gore for his debate prep? That’s the question anyone viewing the debate on TV should be asking. Biden’s appalling petulant behavior, in conjunction with the moderator’s refusal to moderate the debate instead of debate the debate, allowed Biden to get out of control and make a clown of himself. That is all anyone will remember. | Read More »
AFSCME Uses Forced Dues to Promote Obama, Pummel Romney
American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees (AFSCME) Council 8, one of Ohio’s largest public employee unions, has mimicked D.C. union bosses by releasing a steady barrage of pro-Obama, anti-Romney communications through its website.

Pew Poll Shocking — Because Their Pollster Thought Obama’s Lead Was Huge
Every election cycle, the American people are inundated with polls. Polls with blacks, white, Hispanics, women, Jews, Catholics, young people, and the Asians are disseminated ad nauseam – despite most of them being flawed or so skewed concerning the sample spread that it’s not worth commenting on in any analysis. When Romney hit a slump towards the end of September, which led to his dip | Read More »
ABC News’ Tapper asks ‘didn’t President Obama shoot first and aim later?’
Does anyone remember when President Obama and some in the media chastised Mitt Romney over his remarks after the Cairo protests and the Libyan terrorist attack on our embassy in Benghazi, which led to the assassination of Ambassador Chris Stevens? Who remembers when the media, by and large, ignored the true story, which surrounded the state of our security at the Benghazi embassy the day of the | Read More »
President Obama promises to be incompetently nasty at next debate.
I’m paraphrasing: the exact line from the ABC article was “President Obama says he was “just too polite” and that voters should expect “a little more activity” next week in round two.” How is this funny? Let me count the ways: ‘Too polite’ is not actually semantically equivalent to ‘walked into an ambush fat, dumb, and happy.’ Which is what happened. And while ‘a little | Read More »
Hollywood’s Newest Scandal
Actress Stacey Dash just dropped a bombshell. She has shocked the world. She has peed voluminously upon the pieties of the Tinseltown Apostates. She has audaciously and egregiously thought for herself, and endorsed Mitt Romney for President.
In Hollywood, they like their creativity vapidly unoriginal and their diversity homogenous. There must be blood. (Or at least a gaggle of idiots auto-beclowning on Twitter). Piers Morgan of CNN samples some of the idiots below.

She exercised her first amendment right to tweet, she can support whomever she wants, and the most important reason above all as to why you haters should leave her alone: She’s all that, I tell no lie the woman is killing it when it comes to being attractive. So back off, and let people vote, you vote, I’ll vote, and we’ll | Read More »
The Day After The Presidential Election — These Four Scenarios Could Be Satire or Maybe Not
One of the following scenarios might just accurately predict the news coverage the day after the presidential election. (These scenarios are in no particular order of probability.) Scenario 1 President Obama narrowly wins reelection with Ohio’s 18 electoral votes bringing him across the finish line. The final electoral vote total is Obama 273 and Romney 261. Republicans are crying foul and heading to court based | Read More »
There Are Two Paths
As we approach the finish line of what I think is one of the most fascinating periods in this great American experiment, a Presidential election, it is clear to me and the team at the Madison Action Fund that we are literally a country at the crossroads of history. We have the choice between two paths. And while some will complain that the distinction between | Read More »
I’ve made no attempts to hide my former Democrat self, as anyone who knows me can attest. I enjoy connecting with other reformed Democrats and sharing stories of the group-think we were a part of, unbeknownst to us at the time of course. That there are so many of us is a large part of why I find it hard to resist debating Democrats today; | Read More »

Despite What Pundits Say, Romney Still Has Underdog Advantage
From the diaries by Erick The past few weeks have been chalk-full of conservative pundits voicing their concerns with the Romney-Ryan campaign. Let’s review. It began with a POLITICO story citing numerous sources blaming the impending fall of the Republic on Romney strategist Stuart Stevens. Then came the holy trinity of conservative columnists – David Brooks, Charles Krauthammer, and Peggy Noonan – labeling Romney as | Read More »
