"This is how Obama got launched in 2004. Yike."

what, you got a problem with launching Rubio?

Danube of Thought

"what, you got a problem with launching Rubio?"

Well, there's his allegiance to Cuba. (Kidding.)

AliceH

I thought Obama was a keynote speaker, but another speaker actually introduced Candidate John Kerry?

That would make the "this is how Obama got launched" a reference to Christie, not Rubio.

GMAX

As will Governor Walker, TM.

AliceH

Ohhh I had forgotten all about this :

John Kerry was introduced at the 2004 Democratic National Convention by Wade Sanders, a retired Navy Captain and former Deputy Assistant Secretary of the Navy who served as a Swift Boat officer in Vietnam....

Wade Sanders is now in Federal prison, serving a 37-month sentence for possessing child pornography.


matt

AliceH;

You are providing a valuable public service.

After Russell Simmons talking about slavery and now Joe Biden, and the crass pandering to the Latino electorate, I think we have a clear picture of Obama "Say Anything" the Panderer.

These are the tactics of desperation.

DebinNC

Dem darling Mark Warner was '08 keynoter. He was in Roanoke clapping away at O's "You didn't build that" spiel. Andrew Cuomo surely saved that video for '16..

Some guy

Wade Sanders is now in Federal prison, serving a 37-month sentence for possessing child pornography.

I did not know that. Thanks.

NK

Obama was keynote in 2004, so TomM is referring to Christie. "Launching"? Hey-- is that some kind of fat guy shot by TomM? In the words of the Governor of the great state of New Jersey-- "Keep walkin' pal-- just keep walkin'"

Dave (in MA)

I thought Obama got launched in Bill and Bernadine's pad?

Why is the National Weather Service buying large amounts of ammo? "Hey, I thought you guys said it was going to be sunny today!" BLAM!

matt

It's going to be interesting.

Bobby Jindal, Nikki Haley, Allan West, Scott Walker, Chris Christie all talking common sense versus the "Boogieman" platform of the Left.

The Bowles video is priceless.

The More Clueless Joe and Obama and Debbie Wasserman Flounder and Nancy Pelosi chitter like a a bunch of magpies about nonexistent issues or a clearly Leftist agenda, the more they lose the middle.

Thanks for share this great article with us is so interesting

Excellent information, this is how Obama got launched in 2004 I can believe that

NJ Jan

Many of my friends in NJ are retired teachers who consider themselves Republicans. They are all for fiscal restraint ecxept, of course, when it comes to teacher salaries and benefits. They consider Christie a mean teacher hating bully. They cant figure out why he is so popular in this state. This news has their heads exploding. Trying to discuss underfunding of public pensions and healthcare is fruitless. The class warfare in Nj is public vs private sector. The public sector truly has no clue what is going on in the private sector. I am talking about the "rank and file ", not the leaders. They were truly amazed to how much insurance premiums are. Medicare costs aren't an issue for them either because the state pays for their Medicare and supplement. Their idea of a republican is Susan Collins and/or Chris Shay. They are in a true dilemma. They don't like democrats because they want to protect their accumulated wealth, but they also want their benefits untouchable so voting republican is now a problem for them too. In a way, its kind of funny seeing them trying to figure out what to do.

"Obama was keynote in 2004, so TomM is referring to Christie."

Yep, read that wrong sorry TM

Jane - Get off the couch your country needs you!

Britt is interviewing Ryan tonite on Special Report. He calls him "disarming".

Porchlight

Ras polls Indiana:

A new Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of Likely Voters in the state finds challenger Mitt Romney picking up 51% of the vote while the president earns just 35%. Three percent (3%) prefer some other candidate, and 11% are undecided.

There was no question Obama was going to lose IN this year. But a drop of 17 points from his 1-point win in 2008? Just half that in closer swing states means a Romney landslide.

NK

... but why the 'Fat' shot at Christie?

matt

that's the whole purpose of entitlements, NJJan.

Get them addicted to theirs so that when the time comes and someone says "wait a minute, don't you realize we're robbing Peter to pay Paul" they answer "not with my entitlement you don't".

NK

Matt@215-- bingo! that's what socialist did in Western Europe and the Dems have been doing with less success in the USA since 'Great Society'.

NK

.. and the only thing that finally stops the Socialists/Dems, is as Lady Margaret Thatcher said, they run out of other people's money, and the Ponzi ends.

Captain Hate

Wade Sanders is now in Federal prison, serving a 37-month sentence for possessing child pornography.

37 months on something where the recidivism rate is almost 100%? Something didn't seem right with that until I saw in the sentencing document that he'd be subject to 10 years of supervision post prison.

Jane - Get off the couch your country needs you!

The Reagan comparisons to Ryan are gaining steam. Fox just did a segment on that (that I half listened to), How lovely.

Porchlight

Something didn't seem right with that until I saw in the sentencing document that he'd be subject to 10 years of supervision post prison.

How does supervision like that work? If it's close enough to be effective, it's probably more expensive than keeping him in prison.

Captain Hate

Porch, I assume it means a halfway house.

Porchlight

Okay, that makes sense, Cap'n. Thanks.

Sue

Supervision probably means he reports to a parole officer.

MarkO

Post-incarceration restrictions like this seem odd to me. I wonder if they are effective or merely soothing.

Porchlight

Was it DoT who was asking about NH polling a few weeks back, and why it hadn't moved? I have been watching it too and worrying a bit as I have long thought NH was the most likely Kerry state for Romney to flip, since Bush lost it by only 1 point and it's Romney's backyard.

Looks like there is finally some movement:

http://www.unh.edu/survey-center/news/pdf/gsp2012_summer_presapp071712.pdf

Obama won NH by 10 points and was leading Romney by 9 in April according to this poll. Now they have it Obama 49-Romney 45, within the MOE.

Women favor Obama overall but working women are now finally breaking for Romney, and they outnumber college educated NH women 2-1.

Indies evenly split, Romney 41-Obama 40.

The sample is 521 adults with a subset of 470 LVs.

centralcal

If anyone sees Clarice around, looks like Drudge is thinking along the lines of Ms. Feldman:

MATT DRUDGE ‏@DRUDGE

Are they laying groundwork for Biden to go out on a 'medical' ??? Meanwhile, Hillary glowing on Condé Nast Traveler http://bit.ly/PVkEIP

NJ Jan

Apparently Obama is under 50% in Nj and Kyrillos, who is running against Menendez is only down 8 pts. That is not impressive in a blue state like NJ. They both should be running much stronger against Republicans.

Jane - Get off the couch your country needs you!

Frankly I think every state is moving for Romney at this point.

PaulV

Parole terms should include no internet, computers, dvds or cable TV.

Ignatz

--How does supervision like that work?--

In today's world it probably means he "has" to supervise some playground for the next ten years.

AliceH

Rick Ballard (or anyone else who wants to chime in): If you had 1 or 2 hundred dollars to contribute to one - and ONLY one - senate campaign, which would it be? LI is promoting Mourdock (IN). Or who would be your top 3 contenders?

btw, the question is not who is the "best candidate", but of those worth promoting, which campaign has the need/will most benefit from a modest but I hope meaningful contribution.

BB Key

At a Ryan event today , a man in the crowd shouts : "look no telepromter " see it at Drudge !

Rick Ballard

AliceH,

I work on a "Who would I most like to see gone?" basis and this cycle my top two contenders are Brown and McCaskill with a slight edge to Brown. Both are Deaniac prog disease breeding lice. Akin will beat McCaskill rather easily so the money goes to Mandel in Ohio.

Porchlight

Last comment on state polling, this might have already been posted - Ryan LV favorables in Ohio 51-39 per Ras.

http://www.rasmussenreports.com/public_content/politics/elections/election_2012/election_2012_presidential_election/ohio/ohio_51_have_favorable_opinion_of_paul_ryan

Rick Ballard is right - the Ryan pick indicates Romney is not worried about Ohio or Florida. I think Romney is spending a lot of money on internal polling and this is no surprise to his people. That's why Ryan was selected with confidence.

AliceH

Thank you, Rick. I reached the same conclusion about Akin's chances, which is why I am scouting around for other targets.

Porchlight

Frankly I think every state is moving for Romney at this point.

Jane, I do too, but the polling has been stuck in neutral for a little bit - until now. Post-Ryan we will have a much better picture.

Comanche Voter

Hey what's not to like about this. The Republican submarine skipper is saying "Load torpedo tubes number one and two--and launch when ready".

These rascals are ready to rumble in 2016 and I have not one problem in seeing them loaded in the tube this year.

lyle

until I saw in the sentencing document that he'd be subject to 10 years of supervision post prison.

There's a poor taste Sandusky joke in there somewhere.

marlene

Porchlight,NH is considered a swing state this year.Obama will be there on Saturday. I keep a close watch on my home state of NH from Maine. The Romney's summer home is in Wolfeboro,so I imagine it will become the summer White House. Let's hope!

Rick Ballard

"Post-Ryan we will have a much better picture."

Porchlight,

Dunno about that. The manipulation of the Battleground sample was very disappointing. Gallup has not published their Party Affiliation data for the first week of August and the 'hold' typically (for Gallup) indicates bad news for BOzo. The MFM/Uni garbage polls seem to be a "keep hope alive" effort which may run past the conventions.

I don't expect much in the way of truthful polling until mid-September.

Ranger

This new Romney ad looks pretty good:

Romney Ad: "Paid In"

Anticipate a tearing of hair and rending of garments on the left over the next few weeks.

Porchlight

I don't expect much in the way of truthful polling until mid-September.

Probably wise, but I think the picture will still clarify somewhat now that the ticket is established and more people start paying attention.

Jake Tapper ‏@jaketapper

RT @OfficialSkyNews: BREAKING NEWS Former Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher has passed away at the age of 86 after prolonged illness. ..

Sue

Margaret Thatcher died.

Porchlight

Oh, dear. RIP Mrs. Thatcher...you were one of the greatest.

centralcal

May her soul rest in peace.

Sue

Oh my. Tapper may have jumped the gun. The twitter account was fake that posted the original notice.

Sue

Sean Hannity has also reported she died. Drudge has it. Tapper has backtracked and deleted.

Appalled

Query -- What will Obama have to say re Thatcher's passing? Graceless? Graceful?

derwill

A friend was telling me about a poll he saw whereby 76% of the country knows somebody who is looking for a job. So even if you're working yourself, you're probably worried about whether or not you, too, are going to be joining the unemployment line soon. Incomes are down, and the prices of essentials such as food and gas are going up. A lot of people are hurting in Obama's economy, and they see no end in sight.

If Romney can sell the idea that he really does have a plan to end the pain, he's going to win in a landslide. I think the Ryan selection goes a long way toward that end--Ryan's got national name recognition as the man with a Plan. The Dems believe they can make political hay by sniping at his plan, but what's their plan? More of the same misery we've been suffering through these last four years? Saying we don't have a plan ourselves, but we don't like the other guys' plan doesn't cut any ice when things are this bad.

People want solutions, ideas, PLANS. In the end they'll go for the guy with the plan.

Sue

Repeat...Thatcher is alive. I would have thought Tapper would have verified it before tweeting but I guess not.

Sue

Drudge has pulled it. Sean is retracting.

She lives! She lives!

Clarice

Thatcher died and Joe brainless Biden is running around saying "They" are gonna put you in chains again..There's no justice. OTOH, more Biden should mean more indies running for the hills.

Ranger

These polls look pretty decent over time:

National President Gallup Tracking

Obama (D) 45
Romney (R)47

Romney (R) +2.0


National President Rasmussen Tracking

Obama (D) 44
Romney (R)47

Romney (R) +3.0

Those are teh 3 day averages for Sat, Sun, and Mon.

Rob Crawford

In regards to Biden's blood libel:

How desperate are they if they feel they need to keep the black vote engaged this way?

Joshua Treviño ‏@jstrevino

Margaret Thatcher remains alive, the Falklands remain British, and the Soviet Union remains dead. Enjoy victory, Baroness.


Amne.

centralcal

Ahem - Amen. (eyeroll)

Captain Hate

Further evidence that Tapper is an idiot and the MFM adds no value to anything.

Alas, I am triply ineligible... unless I can convince them that the more legitimate definition of "first responder" is ones self. Think that'll fly?

Porchlight

Yep, I posted on FB and some friends quickly figured out the internet hoax. They were not Thatcher fans but were pretty polite about it. Then I got to repost the following:

"Sorry folks, internet hoax - my fault for spreading. Viva Iron Lady!"

which already has smartasses commenting.

All this on the day following the death of a mutual friend of many of us here in Austin. What can you do with the left?

Sue

Wow. Hannity tears into the dem operative on his radio show. She says Romney calls Obama unpatriotic, Sean says when, she can't answer, he plays Obama saying Bush is unpatriotic and she claims Sean is changing the subject. Dems are really in trouble. At least their operatives are.

Appalled

Query -- What will Obama have to say re Thatcher's passing? Graceless? Graceful?

In answer to my question, I hope we never have to find out. (Confounded internet scams...)

Porchlight

My FB page has turned into a comment thread about the awfulness of Margaret Thatcher. That's what I get for posting on FB during work and falling for internet hoaxes, I guess.

Dave (in MA)

The population of the U.S. hit π hundred million today.

tastes like butter


The Romney campaign is reacting harshly to Vice President Joe Biden's accusation that Mitt Romney and Wall Street will put Americans "back in chains."

“After weeks of slanderous and baseless accusations leveled against Governor Romney, the Obama Campaign has reached a new low," press secretary Andrea Saul said in a statement. "The comments made by the Vice President of the United States are not acceptable in our political discourse and demonstrate yet again that the Obama Campaign will say and do anything to win this election. President Obama should tell the American people whether he agrees with Joe Biden’s comments.”

WAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!

You so mean, Joe. Doncha know Dems aren't supposed to hit Bullies?

AliceH

--The population of the U.S.hit π hundred million today--

I can see it now. Some poor kid is designated the official U.S. π-baby, grows up with jokes about "ooh ooh look at the baby π" and "what a π-baby" and "hey, π, I'll be your huckleberry". He/she is doomed.

Captain Hate

What can you do with the left?

My dipshit lefty FB acquaintances are gripping pretty hard. It's gonna be a fun autumn.

MarkO

I am enjoying the skill with which Romney is making it clear that Obama is not likeable.

Clarice

Dave (in MA)

What is this "huckleberry" thing I've been seeing the last couple of weeks? I'm completely out of touch with modern culture.

Sara

I find that hard to believe, Clarice. Could you give us an example. :)

Danube of Thought

Earthquake? Well, it came right at the end of a nap and my wife says I dreamed it.

So there.

MarkO

Doc Holliday.

Sue

Huckleberry...from the movie "Tombstone", Doc Holliday tells Johnny Ringo he'll be his Huckleberry when Ringo, a professional gunfighter, tries to draw Wyatt Earp into a gunfight, one Earp probably wouldn't win. Ringo backs down.

Sue

I like the idea of Paul Ryan being Doc Holliday and scaring the bejeesus out of Obama.

Clarice

Sara, Andrea SAUL..See 4:27 post.

derwill

"They gonna put you all back in chains." So Romney's a felon, a murderer and now a slaver? What next? Hitler's love child?

Obama really needs to get his campaign out of the gutter. He's gone beyond disgracing himself--he's disgracing the office. He's disgracing the country. He's also a fool, because one of the few positives--perhaps the only positive--his campaign had left was that a lot voters found him personally likable. When your smears are so hyperbolic that only those with IQs under 50 would believe them, you only end up sliming yourself.

You know, I think I can honestly say that if a Republican candidate stooped to this level of gutter politics I would not be able to vote for him. I can't remember a president with so little character. Even Nixon and LBJ had a few principles. I don't know how anyone can be a Democrat today and look at themselves in the mirror.

lyle

OT:

It's rough for people like me who fear both the right and the left.

I know several JOMers read Althouse. I wonder how many of you believe this quote off her blog today. I don't. Ten to one she votes for Zero again.

Actually, Doc outdraws and kills Ringo in the movie. And, in realy life, he likely shot him in the head with a rifle at some distance.

Print the legend.

AliceH

"I'm your huckleberry" clip (it's said in more than a few scenes) Tombstone. (jump to 1m25sec mark) BTW, this "modern culture" movie is from 1993.

More "serious" background here.

lyle

He's gone beyond disgracing himself--he's disgracing the office. He's disgracing the country.

I agree with this sentiment but not the tense of the verb 'disgrace.' He disgraced (past tense) the office barely a couple months into '09.

Rob Crawford
Ten to one she [Althouse] votes for Zero again.

No one will take that.

Sad, really -- she's repeatedly nearly assaulted by lefties, but still believes the big bad right-wing bugaboo is hunting for her.

Dave (in MA)

OK, so I'm even more out of touch than I thought.

Ranger

lyle,

My reaction to reading her long post you pulled that from is that she, like pretty much all modern academics, see the state as the only way society can engage in charitable activity. It doesn't seem to occur to her that people might willingly band together to do good things for the less fortunate.

lyle

Come to think of it, BoZo disgraced himself by naming Sheriff Greasy Joe as VP. How Sloe Joe hasn't removed himself and his progeny from the gene pool years ago is an enduring mystery.

Sue

And, in realy life, he likely shot him in the head with a rifle at some distance.

Why Marko, whatever do you mean? Maybe poker's just not your game Marko. I know! Let's have a spelling contest!

::grin::

I love that movie. There's a quote for almost any conversation. It appears my hypocrisy knows no bounds.

Porchlight

Ten to one she votes for Zero again.

I'm with you, lyle, although others here have disagreed.

rse

marlene-I did not realize NH is a swing state but I have been talking to some people up there about both sustainable devt and ed. They are interrelated to me which is what I was alerting Jane to. Can you listen to NH radio where you are?

And I still highly recommend Claire Berlinski's Thatcher book. And I am not sure the latter 2 points would be true by the end of an Obama 2nd term.

lyle

Good points, Rob and Ranger.

windansea

"It's rough for people like me who fear both the right and the left."

Althouse has the mind of a gerbil. She has her comfy professorship existence, spends summers driving around taking "deep thought" pictures of rocks and has no clue what most of the country is going through.

She needs to get a clue we are on the verge of fiscal collapse.

lyle

It doesn't seem to occur to her that people might willingly band together to do good things for the less fortunate.

Like those retrograde Christianists. Eww!

matt

unfortunately a lot of smart and well meaning people believe the BS as well, derwill. It is what they have been conditioned to by the media and their echo chambers.

All the right people think Romney is a neo-fascist, polygamous, Wall Street VC raider, pet abusing Snidely Whiplash.Ask Peggy Noonan and some of the other nominally Republican pundits.

They do not see the Main Street view of unsustainable spending, a government out of control, and cronyism. Or that of an imperial president who ignores the law when it conflicts with his agenda and doesn't even bother to recognize the role of the legislative except when it suits him.

Not when all of the major outlets say the same things and slant the news the same way. Ask any person who grew up under communism and their distrust of the media is genetically embedded. We are not there yet, but we're getting closer.

Porchlight

Most upper class educated liberals live the Althouse existence, windansea, which is one reason why they're so damned clueless. Sad to think she's probably the best of the bunch in terms of having her mind changed (somewhat) in the last four years.
