And He Will Until The Polls Say Otherwise

Does anyone doubt the man's sincerity?

Romney: Sure, I believe in man-made global warming

RomneyCare.  Ethanol support.  Global warming.

The Republican Party is eventually going to put up an alternative to Barack Obama, right?

Right?

$14 Trillion In Debt & They Sing Kumbaya

I'm not all worked up over the fact that the Richmond Federal Reserve Bank decided to make a statement by running the gay flag up its flagpole, like Delegate Bob Marshall is.

But where is the evidence that those who are overseeing America's banks - which are still in crisis - and who are responsible for safeguarding the strength of our currency - which is as weak as it's ever been - and who are responsible for promoting America's standing in the world marketplace - a standing that is on the verge of being laughable - are serious about any of that? 

Do those in charge even understand why they're there?

"'We are flying the pride flag as an example of our commitment to the values of acceptance and inclusion,' Sally Green, the bank's first vice president and chief operating officer, said earlier this week."

Swell.  The United States of America is going to hell in a handbasket but we're watching the collapse arm in arm, brothers and sisters, black and white, gay and straight, till death do us part.

For the love of God.

How To Spot a Liberal Publication

Can you imagine Politico putting up this headline if a Republican were in office?

What can Barack Obama do to fix the economy? Not much

So whatever happened to this way of thinking?

"Change will not come if we wait for some other person or some other time. We are the ones we've been waiting for. We are the change that we seek." (Barack Obama, Feb. 5, 2008)

As Barack Obama (and Politico) (and Roseanne Roseannadanna) might now say:

Never mind.

A Good Line

James Taranto on the woes that have befallen on what Democrat shining star John Edwards has gotten himself into:

"Adding insult to injury, the National Enquirer reports that Rielle Hunter (née Lisa Druck) has dumped Edwards. So he's lost two elections, two women, his dignity and maybe soon his freedom and his law license. He may have a career ahead of him in country music."

Good stuff.

On The Awful Economic Numbers That Were Just Released

The Wall Street Journal:
The same economists and pundits who promoted the economic policies of the last four years are now lamenting the jobs bust and demanding that Washington double down: More stimulus spending, more Federal Reserve easing, more temporary tax rebates. They can't explain why these policies have failed to date, but we are supposed to rinse and repeat.

The real "bumps on the road" to recovery are these policies and the larger climate of hostility toward job creators that still prevails in Washington. A National Labor Relations Board that wants to stop businesses from moving plants; a $20 billion political raid on banks over foreclosures; hundreds of major new regulations from ObamaCare, Dodd-Frank and the EPA's war on carbon energy; federal deficits that Mr. Obama says require higher taxes; near-zero interest rates for 30 months that have sent commodity prices soaring, and so much more.

The economy doesn't need more of this. It needs a return to the growth agenda that created the long post-1982 boom.

The Problem(s) In a Nutshell

Retired Army Colonel Patrick Murray, who gave leftist Jim Moran a run for his money in 2010 in the most liberal congressional district on the planet (VA-8), is still pounding away at the mess Moran and his pals in Washington continue to make.

From Colonel Murray's website, regarding the debt ceiling controversy, the expanding deficit problem, and who's to blame:
Naming Names In Virginia

On May 31st the House voted on HR 1954, entitled: To implement the President’s request to increase the statutory limit on the public debt. This was a stand-alone bill about whether we should raise our national debt ceiling beyond $14 trillion without any commensurate budget cuts. The title of HR 1954 could’ve been: Should we continue on this reckless, destructive path of spending, or is it time to live within our means?

Fortunately HR 1954 was handily defeated 318-97, with eighty-two Democrats joining all Republicans in voting against the bill. It was a no-brainer vote that should been unanimous, but nowadays we’ll take what we can get. However, what this vote did was draw a very clear line in the sand as to who is to blame for the debt as we go forward. Every one of the “Nasty 97” who voted in support of HR 1954 is saying that they want the irresponsible spending to continue, and are therefore openly hostile to securing America’s future (See the by-name vote here: (http://clerk.house.gov/evs/2011/roll379.xml).

Sadly, but predictably, all three Democrats in the Virginia Congressional Delegation are part of the Nasty 97. Jim “bully” Moran, Gerald “what me worry” Connolly, and Robert “show me those tax dollars” Scott all voted to continue to spend with impunity. The vote of the Terrible Trio of Moran-Connolly-Scott is sad because right here in Virginia we have been schooling the rest of the country about what is the right path to prosperity. [link]
