narciso

I made this point, how did we get to the point where ignorant jesters and troubadours,
have such a large part of the political mindset among the muddle,

NK

What is the NYT?

Jack is Back!

If its "in the bag" then why throw away $1 million?

Clarice

10 thunbs up, TM/

Neo

“Axelrod and company are keeping Maher’s money.”

Think of it as a fine on Maher. If they gave it back, he would probably just blow it on contraceptives for Ms. Fluke.

GMAX

And Axelrod puts down the microphone and slowly backs away from Maher. That is all you need know. Hoisted upon their own petard. Name one strategy the Democrats have undertaken since 2009 that has worked out like they planned it. I can not name one. Every single cigar comes from ACME cigar and blows up in their face. Pity really.

narciso

So Mike Lee, appropriately chastises Chu, and then votes against ANWR.

Threadkiller

If I ever got money from Maher, I would publicly endorse the check over to George Bush.

NK

TM-- you gave the money BACK to Maher!!??
What about the BLOGGER CODE? "take everything you can.... give nothing back." The blogger union will come after you hard over this TM.

Porchlight

Here's something for the GMAX file - in order to get Obama to a 50% approval rating, they had to poll a sample with 51% Democrats.

http://hotair.com/archives/2012/03/14/shocker-poll-with-51-democrats-gives-obama-50-approval-rating/

AliceH

Porch - I checked the Feb results from Reuters/Ipsos, which had Obama at 48% approval, and you'll not be surprised to learn that that sample was of 49% Democrats.

This is probably not the trend they are looking for...

NotSara

Well, I woke up and saw the results from last night, and it all is very depressing. On one hand, we have a candidate who says he will never say any outrageous things about Obama and that it isn't Obama's fault re the high gas prices, and on the other hand we have a candidate who is a whiner and continues to emphasize the role government should have in the bedroom!! Woe is us.

Porchlight

Good work, AliceH. That is just hilarious.

centralcal

Wow, AliceH! But, I love it.

Clarice

51.1% Dems per Hot Air, Alice.

Jim Ryan

If Santorum's being against abortion and contraceptives makes him unelectable, then the electorate is stupider than a sack of hammers and the country is doomed.

AliceH

Clarice - Hot Air reporting on the March results, which was, 51.1% dems = 50% approval. In prior poll (FEB), 49% dems = 48% approval.

NotSara

Well, Jim, who wants a president against contraceptives? Religious freedom yes, against contraceptives for all, ridiculous!

AliceH

NotSara@10:31 - time to watch the Breitbart CPAC speech again! Start at 12:15 mark, with "you want a Unity Speech..."

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lbycMtTUDfE

NK

Porch/AliceH/Clarice-- thanks for the poll evals. Amaziing, to get 'Bam to 50% approval, the Lib-Legacy media has to rig the sampling to 51% Dem. The November electorate may not even be 33% Dem. Please Seblius-- keep publishing those Regs, Please Chu/Salazar-- keep making lame excuses for gas prices, Please Ben, keep printing money, Please Harry please refusing to pass a budget. The only wild card for Novemebr is -- the Mullahs.

MarkO

Would anyone feel better about Romney if he said, "I will say outrageous things about Obama"?

MarkO

"the electorate is stupider than a sack of hammers and the country is doomed."

Calling GMAX.

Porchlight

MarkO, I would settle for "I will tell the truth about Obama."

Clarice

Thanks Alice.

NotSara

MarkO, I agree with Porch. The trouble is, I don't think Romney will do it. He seems to want to remain "above the fray" with Obama but hasn't seemed to have a problem attacking his Republican rivals. I just don't think he "has it in him."

Gus

Santorum is no more AGAINST CONTRACEPTIVES, than Joe Lieberman is AGAINST HAM SANDWICHES.

Discuss.

NotSara

Sorry, Gus, he has said that he didn't believe in contraceptives--being a Catholic and all.

Jim Ryan

against contraceptives for all

NotSara, what does that mean? Does Santorum support banning contraceptives?

Ben Franklin

One of Ocean's Eleven has decided to retire from the gang after the record-setting Casino Heist.

I chuckle......

"It might sound surprising to a skeptical public, but culture was always a vital part of Goldman Sachs’s success. It revolved around teamwork, integrity, a spirit of humility, and always doing right by our clients."

Gus

Sorry Not Sara, but Joe Lieberman is against Ham Sandwiches, but would not deny you one. Get a clue.

Rick Ballard

"being told by several Hollywood friends that the election was “in the bag” for Mr. Obama" and the Reuters/Ipsos poll are two facets of the same prism. The great MFM perverters of truth need to promote the fiction of a contest just as Maher needed to tell a rather extravagant lie about "several Hollywood friends". The speed at which the MFM is circling the bowl was supposed to be slowed by the influx of money from the 'billion dollar war chest' which was hopefully going to be matched on the GOP side and stem the final flush.

I can't think of a more fitting end to the progressive failure than choking to death on its own lies.

Ben Franklin

A parody on the literal escape from the Death Star before the explosion.

NotSara

All I am saying is Santorum should NOT insert his personal beliefs in his speeches about what to do--I absolutely do NOT want the government deciding what I do with my personal life. I have believed that ever since Roe.

Jim Ryan

I'm in the "Let's all get behind Romney and push him over the November finish line" camp now.

MarkO

When I Google Romney tell the truth about Obama all I find is Santorum claiming Romney is a liar. But, I found a story from yesterday in which it appears that Romney is attacking Obama. He has his issues, but Romney has slammed Obama following every primary contest. He may not be conservative enough for many, but I'm not certain it's accurate to suggest he would not attack Obama.
http://thecaucus.blogs.nytimes.com/2012/03/13/in-missouri-romney-attacks-obama-for-rising-gas-prices/

narciso

That was always the way, they felt at Wolf,Ram, and Heart, right before the yearly
'sacking' that who paid for your guy, Ben.

Janet

Santorum is no more AGAINST CONTRACEPTIVES, than Joe Lieberman is AGAINST HAM SANDWICHES.

Great point.

Gus

NotSara, which other beliefs is Santorum supposed to keep to himself?

NK

BenF-- uh-- GS are in effect Barry Obama's personal bankers; the financiers of his crony capitalism (especially since Jamie Dimon put his shareholders ahead of his personal political loyalty.) Indeed, I believe in 2008 GS employees gave MORE to Barry than any other firm. So if GS is 'toxic'; what does that say about Barry?

Ben Franklin

" but I'm not certain it's accurate to suggest he would not attack Obama. "

I don't know about you, MarkO, but I look forward to the debates.

NotSara

Oh, I will certainly vote for him, MarkO, but I am just sad (or maybe mad) that he doesn't seem to want to expose all the bad things about Obama.

NK

Rick Ballard @11:03: well said.

Gus

Ever since the SUPREME COURT said it was OK to kill your baby.....it's been OK to kill your baby??

Jim Ryan

I absolutely do NOT want the government deciding

So you agree with Santorum on contraceptives. Got it.

Gus

Jim Ryan, Santorum is not allowed to express his personal beliefs. Not since ROE!

NotSara

Gus, He is free to express any beliefs he want to--I just think it "turns a lot of people off" that he seems to be proselytizing. I am glad he is a person of faith--I think the majority of people simply do not want to hear about his faith. They would rather hear about what he is going to do with the economy, gas prices, Supreme Court, pipelines, etc.

Gus

Romney is against COCA-COLA. I'm fearful.

Rick Ballard

"but I'm not certain it's accurate to suggest he would not attack Obama"

It would be very inaccurate. Governor Romney has now made promises on the repeal of Obamacare and drilling which I believe he would find impossible to repudiate. He is constant in his observations regarding Obama being a total failure and there is no reason to believe that he will relax, ala Dewey, rather than press for the kill. He's running a very disciplined campaign and the probability that he will succeed is very high. My opinion of him hasn't changed by a millimeter.

OMG~ABO

NK

BenF says: "I don't know about you, MarkO, but I look forward to the debates."

Why do you assume there will be debates? Axelrod/Plouffe have given up on white/asian families and investors-- in fact they are actively trying to turn those and other voters off, and persuade them avoid the political process altogether in November. A/P want to turn out their votes, and suppress independent voters, NOT persuade Indies to vote FOR 'Bam-- they know that's a lost cause. How do any debates advance A/P's strategy? I don't think they do-- so maybe 1 debate, maybe none.

Appalled

Will the "Romney won't be mean enough aginst Obama" meme go away? I mean, I wonder here what people want. "Get thee from our shores, you Kenyan Communist Muslim?"

Obama is vulnerable to all sorts of attacks on his economic policies and a drift towards something that looks like rule by regulatory decree. He is not particularly vulnerable to "well he knew this kind of commie guy back in 1991, see Breitbart's got the tape."

Obama has a record -- and we know the kind of President he is. That's what you attack. All day long, all the time.

AliceH

Breitbart: "Ask not what your candidate can do for you, ask what you can do for your candidate".

Romney/Santorum don't fire you up? Breitbart: "So?"

Seriously, there is not a perfect person hiding in the wings that if only we wished hard enough and waited long enough and whined often enough would suddenly swoop in and win the R nomination. Get behind a candidate - do your own rallying - make the conservative case - apply the pressure - rally rally rally.

Breitbart: "There are two paths...

Thus endeth my harangue.

Ben Franklin

" So if GS is 'toxic'; what does that say about Barry?"

Obama is responsible for allowing the criminals to continue to scoff at the Law. He didn't create them, but he is an enabler. The Left has been highly critical of him on several fronts. You aren't aware of that? Read some diverse sources.

NK

RickB @11:18 and Appalled @11:19-- agree with both of you. Romney has been attacking 'Bam's record (not 'Bam) and proposing clear alternatives. That's the correct and winning play.

Gus

NotSara, you made it clear where you stand.
Nice try backtracking.
It's still perfectly legal for you to kill your baby!!

""All I am saying is Santorum should NOT insert his personal beliefs in his speeches about what to do--I absolutely do NOT want the government deciding what I do with my personal life. I have believed that ever since Roe.""

marlene

TM's post mentions Sasha and Malia.They are young and have spent their formative years in the White House. Will they learn new perspectives when they become adults or keep the ideological world view of their parents.There are presidential children who become estranged from their parents,but most spend their adulthood preserving the legacy of their presidential father. What legacy will they promote?

NotSara

Gus, You completely misunderstand. I do not agree with Roe. I think any decision concerning one's personal life lies with that person and NOT the government or a Supreme Court ruling.

narciso

You didn't care then, Appalled, even when evidence of what he was, was readily available here, you looked to be spoonfed. Most of the important promises, he made, regarding 'fundamental transformation' were
followed through, 'Mission Accomplished' for Mr. Chu, punctuated by the feckless Senate
that ratified his decision,

Ben Franklin

" so maybe 1 debate, maybe none."

Depends on how vociferously Romney/Attack Dogs distort the facts.

I suspect the distortions will be Epic. Ergo; multiple debates.

NK

BenF-- I'm talking about you. Please tell us, what is good/bad about the GS connections to Barry-- Geithner paying off GS in the AIG bailout by paying CDS defaults 100%- no haircut; Dudley to NY Fed; the GS contributions; NO MBS prosecutions of ANYONE at GS or fannie or BOA/Countrywide(just an SEC civil fraud action.) I don't care what OTHER leftists think- what do you think?

Gus

I'm glad I'm learning about your personal moral code NotSara. And I'm glad I know Santorums.
Of the 4 candidates running in the GOP, I know Santorums and I know Romneys' moral code. Not so much with Paul or Gingrich, and in fact, what I DO KNOW about Paul and Gingrich's personal beliefs does not endear them to me. I DO NOT agree with many aspects of other peoples Religious principles or rules, but I respect them. I eat pork, and I drink caffeine. I do not fear a PRINCIPLED man having a different religious stance. If Santorum was FOR CONTRACEPTIVE USE, wouldn't that put him at odds with his self professed DEVOUT CATHOLIC status??

Ignatz

--He didn't create them, but he is an enabler.--

That seems more than a little easy on Barry.
He's the chief beneficiary of their largesse; he's in bed with them.
That's makes him a slut, right? It makes him a prostitute.

Rick Ballard

NK,

You really shouldn't forget Jon Corzine when speaking of leftist scum alumni of Goldman-Sachs. After all, he's a bigger Obama poster boy than Kaiser of Solyndra.

NK

BenF-- "distortions" that will be a SuperPac TV ad feud of disgusting Dollar amounts-- I don't think that will drive the debates. IF Axelrod/Plouffe see the election as a sure loser by September, OK they should change strategy and demand to debate everyday and hope Romney blows it. I don't think it will get that bad for 'Bam by september-- but hey, the year is young!

Extraneus

Obama camp: If election were today, Mitt would win

President Obama's campaign staff made the curious decision to build a fundraising message around their candidate's apparent weakness, warning supporters that Mitt Romney would beat Obama if the election were held today.

"Friend," Obama campaign manager Jim Messina wrote today, "If the general election were held today, President Obama would lose to Mitt Romney -- according to the latest poll from Washington Post-ABC News. Now, many other polls put the President on top, but all point to the same reality: We're looking at a race that will be tighter than you think," Messina warned.

Gus

Where did TIM GEITHNER work. I mean after his TAX CHEATING??
Seems to me that Barack Obama has made some very poor choices in whom he associates with.

Ben Franklin


NK;

I think Obama is the Jackie Robinson of Politics. Imagine if he had actually behaved like a Marxist radical.

On your litany, he has acted abysmally on Financial Reform of Wall Street because he took 'Team of Rivals" too far.

He exacerbated the dilemma on Wall St by naming some of the chief criminals to the Board. That bent the spine of any real reform and maybe he likes it that way. I don't think he does, but he is a pragmatist first.

Didn't he turn down Public Funding? Pragmatism, squared.

Danube of Thought

WASHINGTON--While Rick Santorum gets his props for winning the popular votes in Alabama and Mississippi, Mitt Romney won more delegates in the four Tuesday contests than any of his rivals.

After Tuesday votes in Mississippi, Alabama, Hawaii and American Samoa:
DELEGATES WON
41 Romney
35 Santorum
24 Gingrich
1 Paul

The Supreme Court did not say it's OK to kill your baby. It said the states can't outlaw aborting a fetus.

Well may be that was the commonality between him and Fluke, I wonder when Anita Dunn will tell Zuckman, to bring the hook.

Gus

Danube! I see you have your lawyer hat on!
Good morning.

Janet

The Supreme Court did not say it's OK to kill your baby. It said the states can't outlaw aborting a fetus.

That is exactly the same thing.

Porchlight

Romney picks up more delegates than anyone else, sure. His problem is that the "weak frontrunner" narrative needed to be punctured and his people were hoping that would be accomplished by an actual victory in the Deep South where it was previously believed he couldn't win. They were also pushing the "Santorum is done, Romney has the momentum" meme.

It didn't work out, so "weak frontrunner" stays for now.

Gus

Janet, Danube is saying that the SUPREME COURT did not make a value judgement, they allow YOU to.

I hope I haven't mischaracterized you DoT

If the Supreme Court had ruled that the states can't outlaw murdering one's spouse, I think most people would find "The Supreme Court says it's OK to murder your spouse" to be a fair characterization of that ruling.

On occasion I remind people that fewer people would take the abortion option if better paths were available to take care of unwanted children.

I would like to see those who would outlaw abortion in the first trimester put a great deal of energy towards encouraging support for unwanted children because surely condemning people to care for unwanted children does not lead to the quality parenting those children deserve.

narciso

Btw, the Fed is pointing out, 'unexpectedly' their may be some inflation on the way,

Ben Franklin

I think a spade is a type of shovel, Ig :>)

And, yes, coffee is an excellent antioxidant. Those who cannot afford it should have access. Noblesse Oblige is not mandatory, but encouraged.

NK

BenF @ 11:36/11:44-- OK, I would note what you call Barry's pragmatism I call shameless distortion and hiding his Leftist beliefs to trick voters -- but that's just the difference between us. as to your 11:44 stating that all politicos are sluts or egomaniacs- that's what a partisan says to an opponent when their side are proven liars and sluts. But let's accept your premise-- isn't that the definitive case for SMALL/LIMITED government b/c the politicians are self -serving so the bigger the government the bigger the corruption?
Finally, Barry as Jackie R? uh.. no. Jackie R was a patriot who served his country honorably despite official racism at the time, and Jackie R was a free enterprise REPUBLICAN; indeed at the time of his tragic early death from stress driven heart attack, Jackie was a bank president, and resident of North Stamford Connecticut, just down the road from Bill Buckley and Will Simon. Cheers

No, he's no Jackie Robinson, not even a Charles Hamilton Houston, the first editor

NK;

You left out a very salient point about JR's role in History.

He was the first black man to enter the white-dominated MLB. He was chosen, not just for his skills on the field, but because he was an even-tempered personality who could take the cat-calls from the bleachers, AND his own dugout without losing his cool. He was the door which opened up the segregated League to more and more persons of color.

Current Supreme Court ruling allows abortion in the first trimester of a pregnancy. Those who wish to close that window can argue ethics, morality, religion, belief, and what all else ... but the real issue is to provide quality of life for unwanted children. We spend precious little effort on that.
