The Party Of Civility

Jiggaboo.

That's an abusive epithet I haven't heard in decades.

Yet that's what a black actress who came out in favor of Mitt Romney's presidential candidacy was called by an Obama supporter in response.

A jiggaboo.

Vile.  And contemptible.

And par for the course when it comes to Obama supporters.

That loathsome derogation seems to go along with an exchange I heard on the radio last night that had a caller to John Gibson's show make the declaration, "I hate white people."

He was an unwavering Obama supporter too.

A pattern emerges.

So we conservatives are what again?

Obama's Claim About Romney Lying Is A Lie

And today is Thursday.

Obama's Claim About Romney's Tax Cut Demonstrably False

The important takeaway:

"Let's review again the math of Mitt Romney's proposed tax cuts to show why — contrary to the rhetoric from President Obama's campaign — they do not amount to a $5 trillion tax cut for the rich."

See also : "The President's advisers concede 80% of Romney's tax-cut math."

By the way, this also makes NBC White House cheerleader Andrea Mitchell's work on Obama's behalf false as well.

The truth couldn't slap upside the head two more deserving individuals.

Ya Think?

Oh. my.  This can't be good for the exalted princess of the Left:

Washington Post Frets 'Deadly Benghazi Attack Could Mar Clinton Legacy'

Her misfeasance that led directly to the deaths of four Americans in Libya might damage her legacy as Secretary of State?

It is her legacy.

Forever and always.

Hillary's Legacy

This is shameful beyond anything I've ever read:
Botched in Benghazi:
New evidence on the Libya debacle and false White House spin.
Wall Street Journal editorial

At Wednesday's House oversight hearings into the attack on the U.S. diplomatic mission in Libya, Democrats protested loudly about a GOP political witch hunt. If only such alleged partisanship were always so educational. The Congressional investigation has in a few hours brought greater clarity about what happened before, during and after the events of 9/11/12 than the Obama Administration has provided in a month.

Among the revelations:

• There was no public demonstration whatsoever against an anti-Islam video, or any other grievance, outside the consulate in Benghazi the night of the attack.

"There had been nothing unusual during the day at all outside [our emphasis]," a State Department official told reporters in a Tuesday night briefing hastily organized before the House committee session. Only at 9:40 p.m. on September 11 did a large pack of armed men storm the compound, firing guns and grenades and eventually setting buildings on fire. Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans were murdered.

For more than a week afterwards, Obama Administration officials said the attacks were the result of a demonstration triggered by anger over a YouTube video, as were protests earlier in the day in Cairo. "What happened in Benghazi was in fact initially a spontaneous reaction to what had just transpired hours before in Cairo, almost a copycat of the demonstrations against our facility in Cairo, prompted by the video," said U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Susan Rice on September 16 on NBC's "Meet the Press."

On Tuesday night, a State Department official said, "That was not our conclusion."

• The frontal attack by an extremist militia group with links to al Qaeda was recognized as such by some Obama Administration officials within 24 hours. Testifying on Wednesday, Lieutenant Colonel Andrew Wood, a Utah National Guard Green Beret who commanded a 16-member security team in Tripoli, said the attacks were "instantly recognizable as a terrorist attack. . . . I almost expected it to come."

• The State Department denied repeated requests to improve security at the Libyan mission. It kept the consulate in Benghazi open after Britain and the Red Cross had pulled out of the city after security deteriorated this year. No special security measures were in place for the anniversary of 9/11.

Lt. Col. Wood said he had argued to extend his team's tour in Libya but was pulled out in August. The State Department approved a 30% "danger pay" bonus for Americans working in Libya, but it turned down an Embassy request to keep a DC-3 plane in the country for security support.

Eric Nordstrom, a State official who was the regional security officer in Libya until June, told the committee about a "complete and total absence of planning" for security. The U.S. was relying on a Libyan government that was "overwhelmed and could not guarantee our protection," according to an October 1 memorandum written by Mr. Nordstrom. [link] [emphasis mine]
The Red Cross knew to act in the face of  a growing and looming terrorist threat but the United States of America didn't?

We still don't know who it was that refused security precautions in Benghazi.

But we can all guess.

Our only question now is: Will she resign or do we have to fire her?

For The Love Of God

What do experts do when, after they predicted that global warming was going melt Antarctic ice caps only to learn that the Antarctic ice caps didn't melt but instead grew, to keep from looking like complete failures?

EXPERTS: GLOBAL WARMING MEANS MORE ANTARCTIC ICE

Hello, experts?

Nice George Allen Ad

Nice is a good word for it.  Not substantive.  Not pithy.  Not adversarial.

Just nice:



Nice.

As The Election Approaches

Here's something to ponder. Lesson for today, on federal spending:
Lesson # 1:

* U.S. Tax revenue: $2,170,000,000,000
* Fed budget: $3,820,000,000,000
* New debt: $ 1,650,000,000,000
* National debt: $14,271,000,000,000
* Recent budget cuts: $ 38,500,000,000

Let's now remove 8 zeros and pretend it's a household budget:

* Annual family income: $21,700
* Money the family spent: $38,200
* New debt on the credit card: $16,500
* Outstanding balance on the credit card: $142,710
* Total budget cuts so far: $3.85

Got It ?????

OK, now Lesson # 2: Here's another way to look at the Debt Ceiling:

Let's say, You come home from work and find there has been a sewer backup in your neighborhood....and your home has sewage all the way up to your ceilings.

What do you think you should do ......

Raise the ceilings, or pump out the crap?
