So you think its the product he has to work with?

Ya think? I have a feeling Axelrod's search and destroy methods work better on getting someone elected for the first time than on getting him reelected on, you know, an actual record.

More pain at AP:

"WASHINGTON — Americans are growing more pessimistic about the economy and handling it remains President Barack Obama's weak spot and biggest challenge in his bid for a second term, according to a new Associated Press-GfK poll.

"And the gloomier outlook extends across party lines, including a steep decline in the share of Democrats who call the economy 'good,' down from 48 percent in February to just 31 percent now.

"Almost two-thirds of Americans — 65 percent — disapprove of Obama's handling of gas prices, up from 58 percent in February. Nearly half, 44 percent, 'strongly disapprove.' And just 30 percent said they approve, down from 39 percent in February."

Btw, the season finale of Blue Bloods was very good, contrasting the Obama like Mayor's
amateurishness versus Chief Reagan, who is modeled on Ray Kelly, and their response to
a looming terror attack,

Thanks, Iggy, for your sweet comment. I needed some cheering up today.

Captain Hate

This is the one I was referring to, the whole hatred on neocons, really comes from the fact, that they got much of the policy questions right back in the eighties, as opposed to the striped pants Duke and Duke set,

So you've read and recommend that?

The writing style in what I'm reading is superb and makes events just come to life. Dear God, his account of how Peter the Great destroyed the Streltsy thugs who created a bloodbath that almost included him when he was younger is amazing; like somebody cutting a wide swathe through the Rooski mob. No wonder Putin can bend Preznit Pantload over at any time like the insignificant pissant he is.

Captain Hate

Yes Blue Bloods was very good last night; coming on the heels of wondering whether CSI-NY was over for good. Still "A Person of Interest" has been the biggest pleasant surprise of the season.

Does it not seem like Obama is doing everything possible to tick off the Saudis
and frankly the emirate states, by this 'slow jamming' the negotiations with Iran, which were a major concern expressed in the wikileaks and now blowinf a GID asset against AQAP, in that Guardian piece, they suggest
that the latter may finish the reveal.

Captain Hate

now blowing a GID asset against AQAP

They have to be furious at having expended a huge investment of time and people only to have it blown by a vain doofus floating a turd in the punchbowl.

And Volodya does see himself in the Peter the Great role, although I think of him as one of the lesser Ivan's or the first Nicholas. Yes
'Person of Interest' is very good, it's sort

Not sure if anyone saw the link yesterday to the Powerline recount of a story about Mitt on Christmas Eve bullying his way into the home of a family he only kinda knew.

Well, Powerline is at it again, showing Mitt to behave in a way President Obama never would.

Mitt Romney got rid of a hornet's nest for a neighbor. Obama almost got the asbestos out of Altgeld Garden when he community organized the hell out of it.

A quote from the book Powerline is quoting from:

Everyone who knows Romney in the church community seems to have a story like this, about him and his family pitching in to help in ways big and small.

What a bully.

The assaults by Obama and his minions are pitiful, but he is all about solidifying his base and changing the topic from the important issues to gay marriage and the "war on women".

He knows he doesn't have a chance when discussing the important things.

I didn't notice this bit in the Guardian piece until Jacobsen flagged it, which makes the act doubly criminal;

The Guardian has learned from Saudi sources that the agent was not a Saudi national as was widely reported, but a Yemeni. He was born in Saudi Arabia, in the port city of Jeddah, and then studied and worked in the UK, where he acquired a British passport

Can you imagine how hard it is to recruit among the Yemeni, what are the odds we'll
get a chance like that again?

It's not like I was trying to get something I didn't deserve strictly on my own merits, and without societies' help

I used to think that the academy used the concept of intellectual merit - to which they were often indifferent - as a fig leaf to cover their interest in increasing ethnic diversity, which was both a goal in its own right as well as a means of dragging the institution to the left.

Warren has convinced me that the academy is actually hostile to intellectual merit, and they use the concept of ethnic diversity as a fig leaf to cover their sole interest, which is dragging the institution and country to the left.

It's unimaginable that when Fauxcahontas was trying to get a job, Harvard couldn't find anyone with both superior academic credentials than her top 100 school and "superior" racial credentials than her supposed 3% Cherokee background. I don't think they were trying to find somebody non-white with a semblance of intellectual credibility, they were trying to find a left-wing activist with a semblance of non-whiteness.

rse

LUN is a great Churchill quote from 1908 already getting the idea that central planning could not work.

Years ago I took Red and her sister (10 & 7) to England. She adores Churchill and we went to the War Rooms. They were the only kids there and enjoyed it immensely. Red ended up being interviewed by a radio reporter asking her to explain why kids would enjoy the museum. She did too. What a memory.

I would argue that Churchill understood the dynamic that was driving Europe towards a confrontational war with Germany. The Germans in part wanted a war to prove the superiority of their collective social and political vision over the UK's individual focus.

Because the ideas that drove the disasters of the 20th century have never gotten the broad based autopsy they merit, there is real denial over what was at stake and propelling the disasters.

I know sitting in Taxachusetts it may not seem like it, but from where I sit, the Tea Party is simply not going to allow complacency to take over this election

Since I founded a tea party in Taxachusetts that is a tad insulting, but I will assume no insult was intended.

It's the Kennedy-Soros-Buffet Syndrome: "I got mine. Good luck getting yours."

The visual is Dudu and Bubu and especially Dana, on their knees begging while singing the praises of their ruler.

[St]acy (What Not To Wear) London's father?

So what I learn from JOM is not only are conservative women hotter than lefty women (say, to take two at random, Sarah Palin vs. Barbara Mikulski), but conservative men have hotter daughters (Kate Upton, Stacy London vs. say, Chelsea Clinton). Not that such things matter, of course.

bgates-LUN is today's post. You will see I mention the grants flowing in through the schools of ed. Those terms are tainting elsewhere and there's nothing accidental about the spread of poison.

AACU has been actively trying to diminish merit since at least the early 90s. I explain why in book. What's important now is how accreditation in everyone of these professional areas has been pulled into pushing the poison. It's also accelerating. Each newly promulgated set of "standards" is worse than last. In college. for example, the accreditors were brought on board in a formal manner in 2006.

AACU's work trying to assert any disproportionality shows racism is pushing colleges and universities to put much of their focus on "interaction". If that's the purpose, diversity is important. But what you are getting has little economic value. That's part of what I am alluding to at end of post.

I loved the War Rooms, rse. The little room where Churchill slept - hard to imagine a world leader of that stature submitting to anything so humble now.

The Churchill museum is great too. Small, but packed. The guy had like nine careers and excelled in most. Incredible.

"Cometh the hour, cometh the man." When you think of Churchill can anyone doubt it is true?

I keep the souvenir booklet right here by my laptop, as well as a Churchill postcard tacked up on the wall that I bought there. Hope I can bring my kids one day.

What's ironic to me is that it was only last year she was telling us that the rich don't get rich by themselves, that it is thanks to the efforts of others. But now she thinks that her success is due solely to her own "unique" qualifications.

I loved those rooms too. Something wonderfully British about it all.

DoT,

You asked for comments: Sachin Tendulkar is not the God of Cricket more like the reigning King of the Bat. This is nothing more than "home cooking" as we like to call it. The guy who wrote that article is Boby Ghosh who is the deputy international editor of Time and was allowed to do a little bragging about a fellow countryman. England is still top of the table in Test matches. But the little guy Sachin (who is now 39) has hit over 100 test centuries which is comparable to Josh Hamiliton hitting 100 homers each year for 23 years.

Was there something else you wanted to know?

East Bay Jay

For years O's gay marriage stance constantly evolved, though everyone knew it was an act. Obviously they had polling indicating it would be a bad move. So O continued to 'act' his position.

Now we're supposed to believe that O's campaign saw a tipping point in the public's view of the issue, just a couple years after California's Prop 8 vote? Baloney.

The Rs think too much of the Obama team. They're not playing chess, they're not playing checkers, they're playing tic tac toe. And they suck at it. The media embarrassed itself once again this week, trading in even the notion of skepticism for pom poms. Won't be the last time it happens this year either.

At the grocery store parking lot I was met by someone asking me to sign a petition fo block corporate contributions to DC campaigns. I explained why I wouldn't--it would allow the newspaper editors a monopoly on political speech. She insisted they'd be barred, too. I responded the First Amendment would not permit it. She was clearly befuddled by the notion but I didn't see a lot of people racing to sign up for stupid.

rse and porchlight,

Did you get a chance to eat in the dining room of The Goring Hotel while on your respective Palace and Horse Guards excursions?

Very excellent cuisine and if you're lucky you might get a table where Churchill used to eat after a War Room meeting. We lived about a mile away off of Grovesnor behind Buckingham Palace Gardens and liked to take in dinner there from time to time. Not a lot of tourists but more European business types.

Next time in London, highly recommend it.

An object lesson, for sure: it can happen awfully fast.

I have always believed that the speed of decline was due to the generations killed in WWI and WWII. Millions never came home. Think of the valiant RAF men who gave their lives freely. They would have gone on to lead the country. If they and their fellow soldiers had lived, Britain would be a hugely different country today.

Same thing applies to the rest of Europe. Would they have the current birth rate crisis if those millions of men had never been killed and had gone on to have families? Would they ever have embraced socialism in the first place? Hard to imagine that they would, at least not so quickly.

WWI and WWII opened the door to socialism in Europe not because the population became disenchanted with the existing class structures (the popular explanation) but because the men who would have resisted it were all killed. Those that were left were more than happy to embrace a nanny state.

The United States by and large escaped the enormity of 20th century war casualties. Most of our men came home, started families, and formed the most productive workforce ever seen. I think that's made all the difference. So far.

jib- No but I have read about the Goring and Red had me buy Pol Roger champagne after reading it was Winny's favorite.

I stayed at the Stafford when I was somebody and the company picked up the tab. The girls and I stayed at Knightsbridge Green. When we were by the Horse Parade some Irish Guard unit was marching in honor of some remembrance day. Old men with hats and umbrellas. Utterly delightful. Red also knew why Charles I wore 2 shirts to be beheaded and that the Banqueting Hall was what was left of Whitehall. But then again she also thinks everyone should appreciate who Eleanor of Aquitaine is.

Apart from teaching each of my children to read fluently and phonetically so they can easily read words they have never seen, the other thing they feel strongly about is the traveling. Oh and I had the grandparents address all postcards to them anytime they traveled so they all grew up with a sense it was a big world but they appreciated how it fit.

The Fabian Society ensured that proglodyte brain rot was very well established in the UK prior to the Great Prog Slaughters of WWI and WWII. You are correct on the deleterious effect upon demographics in the UK but it wasn't causative. The Fabian/Gramscian rot is causative and it's going to take a very long OPM Famine to burn it out.

More tears in AP's soup:

"Once a bright spot for President Barack Obama, North Carolina is now more like a political migraine less than four months before Democrats open the party's national convention in Charlotte.

The causes are plenty.

Labor unions, a core Democratic constituency, are up in arms. Democratic Gov. Bev Perdue isn't running for re-election; Democrats say she was likely to lose. The state Democratic Party is in disarray over an explosive sexual harassment scandal. Voters recently approved amending the state constitution to ban gay marriage, a position that runs counter to Obama's. And unemployment in the state remains persistently high.

"Nobody can sugarcoat the fact that we got problems here," said Gary Pearce, a former Democratic consultant who was an adviser to former Democratic Gov. Jim Hunt. Pearce was referring specifically to state party woes but could have been talking about any of the troubles here for Democrats."

Porchlight

Rick, yes, the prog movement had certainly begun, but the wars removed what would likely have been a successful bulwark of defense against it. Absent the generational kill-off, progs might have ended up not much more than anklebiters.

Clarice,

Mises and Hayek explained that from the Austrian side early on. The UK/US efforts have never been fully explicated. It's rather odd that the usurpation by Wilson, with the concomitant stern application of the New Improved Alien & Sedition Act, is rarely mentioned as a precursor to President For Life Franklin Delano Roosevelt's "New Deal" (for commies).

All the "President's For Life" of the '30's (Roosevelt, Hitler, Mussolini, Stalin and Tojo) were singing from roughly the same song book and the war time Industrial Production Boards definitely made the imposition of serf's collars far easier.

Danube of Thought

A former Bush pollster has written a memo to the GOP about changing attitudes about gays (it's at Hot Air). Excerpt:

"Follow up to questions about affirmative action:   'This is not about giving anyone extra protections or privileges, this is about making sure that everyone – regardless of sexual orientation – is provided the same protections against discrimination that you and I enjoy.'

"Why public attitudes might be changing:  'As more people have become aware of friends and family members who are gay, attitudes have begun to shift at an accelerated pace.   This is not about a generational shift in attitudes, this is about people changing their thinking as they recognize their friends and family members who are gay or lesbian.'

"Conservative fundamentals:       'As people who promote personal responsibility, family values, commitment and stability, and emphasize freedom and limited government we have to recognize that freedom means freedom for everyone.  This includes the freedom to decide how you live and to enter into relationships of your choosing, the freedom to live without excessive interference of the regulatory force of government.'"

Democrats are about $20 million short of their $36.6 million fundraising goal for the convention in large part because of labor groups sitting on the sidelines, The Wall Street Journal reported last week. Unions gave about $8 million to support the 2008 DNC, but they’ve largely balked over Charlotte because North Carolina is a right-to-work state.

It's an outrage how little the Obama administration acutally cares about union workers. I mean,sure they talk all sweet and nice about it -- but they're all talk, no?
