Comments

Thomas Collins
"Mitt Romney told Jewish donors Monday that their culture is part of what has allowed them to be more economically successful than the Palestinians, outraging Palestinian leaders who called his comments racist and out of touch."

I wonder whether American PC progs will attack Romney over these remarks. The Obama campaign would then have to placate the PC prog base without risking alienating Dem supporters of Israel.

Even Dick Cheney gets it wrong once in a while. Sarah Palin was more qualified to lead than McCain.

Neo

Speaking of President "Gutsy Call" ...

At the urging of Valerie Jarrett, President Barack Obama canceled the operation to kill Osama bin Laden on three separate occasions before finally approving the May 2, 2011 Navy SEAL mission, according to an explosive new book scheduled for release August 21. The Daily Caller has seen a portion of the chapter in which the stunning revelation appears.

In ”Leading From Behind: The Reluctant President and the Advisors Who Decide for Him,“ Richard Miniter writes that Obama canceled the “kill” mission in January 2011, again in February, and a third time in March. Obama’s close adviser Valerie Jarrett persuaded him to hold off each time, according to the book.

I had to fight through a "Reported Attack" site to get to that DC story.

James D.

OT - Janet, in the What's Up, Doc" comments, you mentioned that you live near Washington-Lee High School. Small world - so do I!

James D.

Also OT - will the people of New York City ever get fed up with Nanny Bloomberg and his desire to regulate and control every single f**king aspect of life? See the LUN for the latest madness.

How did you do that Neo--just go to the site even though it says a virus and malware?

Clarice

James D, now you did it. Haven't you seen my warnings about Janet? Next thing you know she'll be dropping by with cakes and cookies and talking you into some do good projects with her.

Soylent Red

Next thing you know she'll be dropping by with cakes and cookies and talking you into some do good projects with her.

And oatmeal soup. Actually Janet and her hubbie are good peeps, good people to have in your corner.

Hopefully Romney's visit to Poland is a sign that we're going to re-establish alliance with them under his administration. The Poles are good allies and generally loved America and Americans up until about 2009. Forget what happened to change their mind...

Ignatz

--How did you do that Neo--just go to the site even though it says a virus and malware?--

There's a little button in the lower righthand corner which says 'this is not an infected site' or something similar that you can click.

centralcal

sailor: I did earlier this morning and DC Caller on Twitter is saying that although the warning is still showing up, the malware was gotten rid of. They say they are waiting for Google crawler, whatever that is, to remove the warning.

maryrose

With a heart as big as Texas, Janet remains one of my favorite posters. She's a person who does good things with a sincere heart!
Romney is making Oblammy look like "Mr. Out of Touch" with his timely visits to Israel and Poland. Also So far so good in London thanks to his warning to step up security. I feel safer knowing someone has a clue about our safety, world relations and how to get the economy moving again.
OT: How come we keep seeing Obama adds during the Olympics? I know NBC is his network but Sheesh...

Rick Ballard

"Gxxgle crawler"

Is Gxxgle intentionally screwing up sites or have the Reds running the collective just lost their 'touch'?

I'd like to know if Governor Romney discussed NG in Poland as well as in Israel. Both countries are sitting on enough gas to disrupt the Russian/OPEC oligopoly and a Romney plan which entailed encouraging the conversion of the suburban ring transport system to NG would, IMO, be a winner. What's not to like about commuter vehicles running on the equivalent of $1 per gallon gas?

Der Speigel has already weighed in the Romney is incompetent, so we got that going for us.

And the news that ValJar had any say whatsofrickinever on Bin Laden missions is, to me, a devastating condemnation of a feckless President.

Clarice

Janet's the BEST!! That's why I can get away with teasing her like this.

And Hit may have a chain saw and a pin in his nose but he is also a kind and generous soul. Just for the record.

Chubby

in the sidebar beside the story about Mitt talking about the difference in output between Israel and Palestine is this, apparently another story: ((Mitt Romney and the ‘wimp’ factor)) Good Lord, his blunt, unpeecee comments in the main story were anything but wimpy. I can't remember any politican being that blunt before.

Chubby

((Janet remains one of my favorite posters. ))

Danube of Thought

Let someone--anyone--step forward and say "the Palestinians' culture has not hindered their progress."

Chubby

maybe the real reason Cheney feels that Palin was a bad choice by McCain is that he feels secret animosity toward McCain and resented all the votes Sarah brought to the ticket.

Melinda Romanoff

matt-

And it lends credence to the chatter that Panetta OK'd it and ValJar was told after the Go/Nogo point.

Danube of Thought

Maybe Lessadolla would like to chat with BuBu from her cell:

"While NAACP President Benjamin Jealous lashed out at new state laws requiring photo ID for voting, an NAACP executive sits in prison, sentenced for carrying out a massive voter fraud scheme. In a story ignored by the national media, in April a Tunica County, Miss., jury convicted NAACP official Lessadolla Sowers on 10 counts of fraudulently casting absentee ballots. Sowers is identified on an NAACP website as a member of the Tunica County NAACP Executive Committee."

What a difference 4 years makes:

Obama Promised In 2008 He Would Not Run Negative Ads

It appears Obama no longer wants to talk about the issues and wants a return to "slash and burn" politics.

centralcal

According to TVNewser the Daily Caller malware was pornographic ad banners that only showed up on iphones and similar devices, but not PC's.

Captain Hate

More detail on what DoT reported:

Sowers received a five-year prison term for each of the 10 counts, but Circuit Court Judge Charles Webster permitted Sowers to serve those terms concurrently, according to the Tunica Times, the only media outlet to cover the sentencing.

“This crime cuts against the fabric of our free society,” Judge Webster said.

Sowers was found guilty of voting in the names of Carrie Collins, Walter Howard, Sheena Shelton, Alberta Pickett, Draper Cotton and Eddie Davis. She was also convicted of voting in the names of four dead persons: James L. Young, Dora Price, Dorothy Harris, and David Ross.

I'm glad she's serving time but *very* upset that she didn't get the full rip for each of her crimes thanks to whatever reason the judge has for allowing her to serve them concurrently. And bravo, MFM, for sitting on this story like the sanctimonious idiots you are.

Ignatz

((Mitt Romney and the ‘wimp’ factor))

The subtitle is irony, cubed.
Barry is perhaps the most insecure imbecile we've ever had as president and yet it's Romney they try to tag with the 'insecure' label even as they also label him a clinch jawed, iron fisted, capitalist roader, robber baron.

Ignatz

--thanks to whatever reason the judge has for allowing her to serve them concurrently--

She voted for him...concurrently?

Thomas Collins

Well, a prog mindless talking point that Romney is a wimp and Obama an Osama slaying man's man is no less plausible than the 2008 meme that Obama would transcend partisan politics, bring back hope and bring positive change. When you're trying to slice and dice your way to a victory in the Electoral College with a 48-51 popular vote split, every little idiot meme to entice every idiot to vote for you makes sense.

Ignatz

--and Obama an Osama slaying man's man--

Which is why getting the weird little dwarf ValJar's permission is especially harmful to the imbecile in mommy jeans.

Thomas Collins

See LUN (via Instapundit) for an article pointing out that Romney's being unapologetically pro-Israel is key for putting himself in the American exceptionalism camp in contrast with Obama being in the America through the lens of Rev. Wright camp. Support for Israel is not primarily directed at prying Jewish voters from the Dem column.

NK

ABO/T-1000 tells the truth about Palestian corruption and poverty? wow-- bluntly telling the truth wasn't in my ABO/T-1000 script.
Wimp? if the story about ValJar and OBL is true-- 'Bam will lose huge. Aside from undermining one of the only things he did right, AA men will scorn him for being a wimp. Unreal.

Lech Walesa endorses Romney. Now there is a guy who knows a thing or two about the evils of socialism and its horrible impacts on society. As I recall Michigan and Ohio have pretty large Polish American populations. Lets see if it moves the needle. It may a bit.

Even Dennis Ross, to whom I have an extremely difficult time listening, has had with Zero and his rife incompetence. He says he will not endorse and will campaign for him. Might be one of the only things Ross has said that I agree with too.

((Lech Walesa endorses Romney.))

ABO/T-1000 tells the truth about Palestian corruption and poverty?

Is it still hilarious to use the characterization T-1000, NK? Seems like that time has passed.

Some guy

This whole orchestrated campaign to pretend that Romney "isn't ready" and is a foreign policy neophyte is hilarious.

It's not just funny, because it draws the comparison to our Bower in Chief and how all the last campaign's feel good bull droppings turned into genuine foreign policy disasters. But the kids running around the White House are obviously too young to remember how poorly a similar effort failed the last time it was tried.

The more the press and Carter tried to portray Reagan the same way they are now trying with Romney, the more swing voters became aware of the differences between the weakling twit -- yet incredibly arrogant -- incumbent and the challenger.

The only people who are horrified that a candidate might offend the delicate sensibilities of certain foreign grandees and parasites are already (or should be) firmly in the One's camp. When you're preaching to your own choir, this late in the game, you are either desperate or dumb. Probably both.

One of Lakoff's cut & pasting offspring reveals an ugly moral core.
Pfui!

Danube of Thought

My heart soars like the hawk:

"The Obama effort to play the class-warfare card doesn’t play at all among voters in general, with tax hikes for the wealthy coming in dead last among the dozen issues included in the Gallup survey.  It doesn’t even play well among Obama supporters, where it also comes in dead last.  Job creation comes in at #2 for both Romney and Obama supporters, with the federal deficit slightly more important among the former and affordable health care taking the top spot among the latter."

I'm glad the pin is out of your nose.Now let's hope the chainsaw is safely stored in the garage.I once had a girl in my homeroom show up on the first day of school with a ring in her eyebrow. My reaction was to kindly tell her to remove it as I knew that kind of jewelry wasn't going to fly. It saved her a trip to the assistant principal's office and I gained my homeroom helper for the year.

An addendum to my above post: Last year I went to a Christmas craft show in Westlake and I saw the same student,who's married with children now dressed very conservatively. It made my day!

No although I don't disagree with the inclusion; but I was thinking of something in the bold part of my copy.

Iggy, I think he meant NOT campaign for him.(BTW this is a big deal for the low info Jewish voters who support Israel and had no idea Obama's been B.S.'ing them.

Am I the only one baffled by the “wimp” campaign against Romney—formerly the class bully? In this race we have an emaciated, effete, and decidedly metrosexual President running on one side and the other side has just a regular guy. How, in this race, can anyone but Obama be the wimp? Honestly. Is there anyone who would be afraid to punch it out with our little President? Anyone of any age or gender?

maryrose

Nk: Finally a judge who will shine a light on this travesty. If one Black Panther shows up at the polls to intimidate voters on Nov.6th they should be arrested immediately.

I knew what you meant Captain, but I think you knew that I knew. :)

Ignatz

--Is there anyone who would be afraid to punch it out with our little President?--

Only those above his weight class; at least that what he modestly informed us.

maryrose

The Obama campaign in his practicing projection. Whatever they say about Romney reflects back on them and their loser candidate. Obama is the wimp here and the book by Miniter couldn't come out at a better time. Mr. "gutsy call" indeed.

Ignatz

He punches above his weight class but presides below his pay grade; sounds about right for the incompetent little sucker puncher.

RichatUF

MarkO-

Nope, DOOM is here to stay.

Carol Herman

Is this an appeal for the Catholic vote?

The "big" problem is that Mitt got selected. And, Iowa was a mess. Why can't the GOP field more appealing candidates?

Didn't 2008 teach some sort of lesson? McCain got chosen because there was a false belief he'd attract democratic voters.

Instead, the White Guy Lost To The Black Guy.

Rinse and repeat?

Rick Ballard

MarkO,

Empty quiver. Firing all the white guys who used to give him chew toys and scratch his ears has proven to have unforeseen (by the President) consequences.

Carol Herman

If you look at 2010, you can see the GOP's problems.

The victory in da' House, that tossed Pelosi out of the Speaker's Office, brought in the over-tanned drunken guy! Oh. And, the Tea Party was told to "cool it. And, go home."

Then, over in the senate, where Harry Reid held onto his powers ... you saw the chinless wonder from Kentucky heading into the spotlight.

Wow. The GOP is full of such polite people!

In a democratic audience ... you'd have seen rotten tomatoes thrown at that!

But the GOP is so "regulation," that catering to voters is not what's served among the elite.

IF you had had a Nigel Farage! IF you had had someone who would have called out BOTH SIDES for being the same! You might have stood a chance in 2012 to beat a man who has found his best dance NOT going over the top and getting involved in either the EURO shinanigans. Or the ones going on where arabs spring has sprung a few holes.

IF Obama gets re-elected? People like being left alone.

IF this needs a name? It's the "less is more" approach.

Mitt in London was a waste of time.

Now he's in Poland?

He couldn't find any place in America worth visiting? He doesn't look like a millionaire to you?

Danube of Thought

I haven't read exactly what Walesa said about Romney, but if he truly endorsed him, isn't that highly unusual? And wonderful?

Chubby

the picture on Drudge of a beaming Walesa, embracing and being embraced by two beaming Romneys,(Mr. and Mrs.), certainly LOOKS like an endorsement

Romney is highlighting his differences with Obama while Obama looks more like an inept, clumsy tool every day.

Der Spiegel and the British press lambasted him, but for what, really? Speaking as a former president of an Olympics and for calling a Palestinian a Palestinian. Romney is touching all of the bases and building international cred whether the media and leftist establishment like it or not.

Pelosi and Obama have been forced into a Chick Fil A vs. KFC ground loop fer chrissake! bama is accused of taking his marching orders from Valerie Jarrett? Really? Michelle wear's a month's good wages for her visit to the Palace. I wonder if she bowed?

The Bishops have not gone away, and a Catholic firm just won Round One on the contraception mandate.

Carville is calling for a scorched earth offensive and the President's "You didn't build that" is resonating across the fruited plain.

By going for the Left, the Dems are leaving the middle behind. Fiscal responsibility, prudence, and letting the Dems foul their own nest seem to be working pretty well so far.

Ignatz

Elizabeth Warren says people tell her she can "save capitalism", which of course immediately inspires reminisces about having to destroy the village in order to save it.

Crazy Lizzy is to saving capitalism as Little Boy was to saving Hiroshima.

GMAX

The Powerline boys have this one exactly right:

http://www.powerlineblog.com/archives/2012/07/desperation-on-the-left.php

The internal polling is miserable, and their great orator is bumbling stumbling fool willing to spout socialist dialectic as if it was anything but a miserable failure anyplace it has been tried.

GMAX

You know how to tell how bad it is for Democrats and how its starting to seep in finally how Zero has screwed the party, maybe for a generation? We almost dont get idiot prog infestations any more, and when one of the dufi ( plural for many dufus ) do occasion by, its about as feeble and half hearted and dispirited as can be. The mighty Casey struck out and mudville is in mourning.

Chubby

I guess Walesa wasn't overly impressed with Obama's off mic "flexibilty" promise

MarkO

Walesa: "I wish you to be successful because this success is needed to the United States, of course, but to Europe and the rest of the world, too. Gov Romney, get your success -- be successful!"

Some guy

Obama in the magic kingdom:

"Some say that it is wrong for a young woman to live with seven height challenged men, or for a woman to love a beast, or for an old man to love a wooden little boy, but I say, it's time for a new vision, and a new America, where we are all free to love whomever and whatever. [lift chin skyward]

"Unlike my opponents who would close the dwarf mines, destroy the beast, and use the timber from the puppet to build a hunting blind -- I instead embrace them. I celebrate them. I cherish them. [look downward, pretend to be humble]

[pause]"Last night Malia asked me, 'Daddy, why do the republicans hate Donald Duck?' and I had to tell her the truth, no matter how painful, because it is the world we live in today. I said, 'Malia honey, it's because he isn't wearing any pants' [hold back tear]..."

Matt: " Fiscal responsibility, prudence, and letting the Dems foul their own nest seem to be working pretty well so far." Exactly, which is why calls for him to produce more personal documents are preposterous. Let Obama punch himself out.

pagar

"their great orator is bumbling stumbling fool"

Hard to feel there are Americans who believe he should be given another term with more chances to destroy this great nation. Or whatever Valerie decides he should do.

Frau Wurst

Don't forget the "Polish" death camps.

Next Obama will ask you to give up a piece of the kielbasa you worked for so others can have some, too. FLOTUS even warned us that Barack will make us do things we don't want to do.
