Political Wire’s “Correction of the Day”
Via Political Wire: “Over the last 15 months we’ve created over 2.1 million private sector jobs. (Laughter.)” — President Obama, in an official transcript of a fundraising speech this week.

The Bachmann glitter hit and interview of glitterer.

But no one can escape the masterful sleuthing powers of glitter girl, who somehow managed to find this national figure | Read More »

New RNC ad: Economic Turnaround?
“Really? Seriously? Turnaround?” DNC Chairman Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz will say anything to protect the jobs of her fellow Democrats and President Barack Obama. What has she done to protect your job lately? David Gregory’s summary pretty much nails it: “Clearly the economy has not been turned around.” “Americans don’t believe that’s the case.”

New Obama 2012 Ad, RNC Response Ad
The President’s 2012 campaign is underway, and they’ve released the first ad, titled “It Begins With Us.” Allow me to summarize: “Remember how much you liked the President in 2008? That was awesome.

Drill Here. Drill Now. PAY LESS.
From the video description: Gas prices are rapidly increasing and could reach record levels by this summer, but President Obama is preventing us from harnessing our nation’s massive domestic oil supply.

I don’t even have to relate the skyrocketing | Read More »

Video: Michael Moore Robin Hoodwinked
In the above video, Mary Katharine Ham absolutely devastates Michael Moore’s Robin Hood Hypothesis regarding America’s money woes. Spoiler alert: It’s a stupid hypothesis. The grand total of the combined net worth of every single one of America’s billionaires is roughly $1.3 trillion. It does indeed sound like a “ton of cash” until one considers that the 2011 deficit alone is $1.6 trillion. So, if | Read More »
