Can This Be True?

Surely it's too early to call it a done deal:

Suffolk pollster: We’re not polling Florida, Virginia, or North Carolina anymore, because Romney’s going to win them


What about Biden?  Who's to say Joe Biden isn't going to save Barack Obama's presidency?

Typical Tim Kaine

At some point he has to stake out a position on something.  Doesn't he?

Even if it's as innocuous and removed a subject as Dirty Harry Reid?

Can he expect - as Mark Warner did - to simply drift through his campaign and let the media throughout the Commonwealth propel him to victory, without ever having made a commitment to Virginians to actually do anything when he gets to Washington?

Seems so ...

A Message From The Coalfields

Delivered by Robert Stacy McCain:

"There was a time, half a century ago, when Democrats stood firmly on the side of coal miners and enacted programs to help alleviate the cruel poverty that for so long plagued rural Appalachia. Now, under the control of environmentalists, the Democratic Party is the coal miner's worst enemy and threatens Appalachia with a new kind [of] poverty, even crueler for being the result of a deliberate policy. Folks in America's coal towns have not yet lost hope, even as they have been betrayed by the president who famously promised Hope. The end of Obama's war on coal may now be within sight, and the people of Coal Country could cast the deciding votes to end it."

"The Democratic Party ...threatens Appalachia with a new kind of poverty ..."  Just ask the folks over in Boone County, where the unemployment rate has nearly doubled in one year.   A county whose citizens are so enraged by Obama's environmental policies that they chose to nominate federal inmate number 11593-051 to be president in the Democrat primary in May over Obama.

Shoulda sent a message.

Message ignored.

Now it's crunch time.

And Obama needs their votes ...

In Contrast

Two presidents.  Both of whom ordered men to die for their country.

George W. Bush, 2004:

Barack Obama, 2012:

Confirmed: Obama Sent Same Form Letter to Parents of All Fallen Soldiers, Marines, SEALs

Words cannot express ...

Liberalism Takes A Crushing Blow

Jennifer Rubin on Obama's fall from grace and liberalism's accompanying descent:
On one level you can see the shattering of the image these and so many other Obama worshipers created. From deity to chump in four years. He was no mortal politician for them, so the fall is as grandiose as was the messiah-like aura they created.

The left’s freak-out is instructive of their view that Obama the candidate flopped but that liberalism as a cause was unblemished. In fact, Obama’s record and rhetoric on everything from hostility to business to regret for America’s international “triumphalism” to pro-abortion extremism (abortion up to the moment of birth, paid for by the government) to the expansion of the liberal welfare state is as close as a president has ever come to the left’s undistilled worldview. His failure to revive the economy after gorging on Keynesianism, like his one-man-wrecking crew in the “peace process” (evidencing the hard left’s antipathy toward the Jewish state), is, in essence, not only a personal failure. His ideas, the left’s hymnal, collapsed on contact with reality.
Not since the days of Lyndon Johnson have liberals gotten everything they ever asked for. Not until 2009, when Obama came to the White House, with his Democrats - nearly all as radically liberal as he is - having control of both chambers of Congress. From them came nationalized health care, mountains of banking regulations, thousands of pages of new environmental restrictions on business, and government spending the likes of which no country - including ours - had ever seen before.

And along with all that came a perpetually weak economy, skyrocketing fuel and utility prices, and crushing unemployment.

Liberals will now start blaming Obama for the massive failures of the last four years.

But they'll not get away with it.

We - and our desendants - will have them to hold to account for what they've done to this once-strong and once-proud nation.

I Become A Fan Of Chris Matthews

His on-air misery and woe?

TV don't get any better than this attack on his beloved President Obama.

But now he's broadening his denunciations.  Now it's the entire Obama campaign that gets it.

I love the smell of napalm in the morning.

Harsh. But True.

Obama Vows to Protect Big Bird, U.S. Ambassadors Not So Much

This Is Why We Have Weblogs

A politician - in this case Missouri Democrat Senator Claire McCaskill - offers up a declaration - regarding the 3/4th of a trillion dollar Obama economic stimulus, "there's no question that the stimulus stopped the bleeding" - and a weblog follows up with a detailed list of evidence that shows her claim to be unequivocally  false.

See "From The DLRS: McCaskill Says The Stimulus Worked."

You're welcome to admire the work that intrepid bloggers around the country do.

Here's to Dana Loesch.  One of the best.

It's Become A World Unto Itself

While the nation flounders ...

... Washington D.C. thrives.

How did it come to this?

We Need More Steve Wynns

Because he says it like it is.

And he has the track record to back up that which he says.

Steve Wynn, CEO of Wynn Resorts:

"I've created about 250,000 direct and indirect jobs according to the state of Nevada's measurement. If the number is 250,000, that's exactly 250,000 more than this president, who I'll be damned if I want to have him lecture me about small business and jobs. I'm a job creator. Guys like me are job creators and we don't like having a bulls-eye painted on our back."

He's absolutely right.

We in business create jobs.  When conditions allow.  That's how we grow our concerns.


At best he creates food stamps.

Lots and lots of 'em.

A job creator?

Only to those too stupid - or in journalism - to know better.

You'd think he would appreciate what we do.

But no.

'What the blank could possibly go wrong?'

Dr. Barbara Bellar, a former nun, an Army major, a lawyer, a college professor and a physician, and now Republican candidate for state senate in Illinois, has a question:

 "What the blank could possibly go wrong?"



And dead on.

I Have A Dream

I refuse to let it die.

As of today, though ...

Hydrogen Cars: A Dream That Won't Die

... the jury is still out.

Make it work, fellas.  Make it work.

And the world's energy problem will be solved for a millenium.
