Why the Left freaked out about Paul Ryan telling the truth about the Janesville closing.
There was a GM plant in Janesville. Barack Obama did make a speech there in 2008. He did, in that speech, make those comments*. And the plant did not “last another year” – despite, I should note, the Obama administration’s bailout of GM that the administration is kind-of, sort-of touting as an ‘achievement.’ These are all true things; which has not kept the Left from screaming otherwise, to the point where the Obama campaign has officially (and in my opinion, unwisely) called Paul Ryan a liar.

CT-SEN race looking better and better for Linda McMahon (R CAND).
What in blazes is going on in Connecticut? Quinnipac polled the McMahon/Murphy CT-SEN race, and it found the same results for that race as did Rasmussen: 49/46 for the GOP candidate. The Q-poll is also showing Obama over Romney… by seven points, which as Hot Air notes is actually awful news for the President; he should be up by double digits there. All in all: this is not yet an upset situation… but it is becoming a bit evocative of the Johnson/Feingold WI-SEN race in 2010.

Elizabeth Warren (D CAND, MA-SEN) staffer attacks, threatens cameraman.
How does Senator Scott Brown keep managing this? ‘This’ being defined as “An aide to Massachusetts Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren, a Democrat, appears to have knocked the video camera of a Republican tracker after an event this weekend in Martha’s Vineyard.”

Elizabeth Warren’s Occupiers to attack Tampa’s EMS during GOP convention?
“EMS” standing for “Emergency Medical Services,” of course. Anyway, that’s the claim – and let us not pretend that the Occupy Movement has not been fully converted into a front for the blackshirt anarchists, shall we? The following will be familiar to anyone who watched how the antiwar movement got hijacked by the exact same people: So people have to remember, this isn’t a bunch | Read More »
MA-SEN: Sen. Scott Brown’s lead confirmed?
Apparently, there are people who are shocked by this: According to a Kimball Political Consulting survey of registered voters in Massachusetts, Senator Scott Brown has a 6 point lead over Democrat Elizabeth Warren (49 percent to 43 percent) with 9 percent undecided. The figure is just within the survey’s 4 percent margin of error. President Obama continues to hold a double digit lead over former | Read More »
Democrats pass on chance to neutralize Cardinal Dolan appearance at RNC.
You’d think that somebody would have jumped on Timothy Cardinal Dolan’s offer, given that the cardinal’s agreement to offer a prayer at the RNC was a pretty big deal. Dolan runs the Archdiocese of New York, as well as the Conference of Catholic Bishops. If you need to know what that means, in practical terms, that’s actually easy to show: he’s the equivalent of this | Read More »
“I want to be a crony!”
Normally, I raise an eyebrow at stuff that might be a little too ‘cute’, but this video* from Crony Chronicles isn’t cute; it’s hysterical. And my use of the word ‘hysterical’ does, in point of fact, incorporate the thought that it’s downright maddening that we’re subtly teaching our kids to think of the government in terms of being the first response to a problem, instead | Read More »
Trailer for Citizens United’s “The Hope and the Change.”
I’m pointing out this Citizens United trailer for their new movie The Hope and the Change – which will feature a variety of Obama voters from 2008, and presumably why they’ve decided to atone for that particular error in such a public fashion – for three reasons.
The President Teleprompter Exposed Mid-Week Memorial Open Thread.
So, this picture was making the rounds: …and, as you can see, it’s ALMOST perfect, as is. In fact, if you think that it IS perfect as is I am not going to blame you for thinking that; you can make a case, there. But you know how it is: people can’t just help but season the soup. Open thread. Moe Lane
RS Interview: Jeff Semon (R CAND, MA-05 PRI).
Massachusetts is… interesting, this year. Despite being a Democratic stronghold, the MA GOP is putting up a pretty good fight; the NRCC recently talked up three of its House possibilities. I was able to talk with one of them – Jeff Semon, in MA-05 – later on. Come, I will conceal nothing from you. This is Ed Markey’s district, and the Democrats are prepared to | Read More »
Jonathan Chait (unintentionally) lays out the case for ending the Hollywood tax cuts.
Is Jonathan Chait not feeling well? Not so much for writing the below, but for writing the below (as AoSHQ Headlines notes) so baldly. The topic was the Left’s domination of television/movies; Chait copped pretty much to admitting that the Right’s basic argument is correct, that it also has merit (something that you can’t actually expect the Left to just concede), and ends with: This | Read More »
On that potentially troublesome Cook County poll.
The Daily Caller reported on a poll today that gave a rather remarkable result: it showed Barack Obama ahead of Mitt Romney 49 to 37… in Cook County, Illinois: which of course includes the City of Chicago. Being under 50% in what can be considered the ultimate Democratic stronghold is not good news for the President. In 2008 Cook County went for Obama over McCain | Read More »
A tale of two campaigns: contrasting Romney-Ryan’s access with Obama-Biden’s.
So, to review the bidding: when Romney picked Ryan, Establishment Democrats (and their liberal lackeys) cackled in response that the GOP would now have to hide from the entire state of Florida, thanks to Mediscare. No way that they were going to go all-in, there. Yeah, about that?
