High living on Pa. Avenue

The Obamas lived high off the hog at the White House — far higher than previous occupants.  State dinners, that is.  Why not?  He’s got a good government job, and that’s good for something, isn’t it?

Yes, folks, there is voter fraud in our fair country

This is very big. Slugger O’Keefe hit a home run:

A lot has happened in the last 24 hours. The entire political establishment is in an uproar over our latest report on voter fraud.

Since yesterday, U.S. Rep. Jim Moran’s son Patrick has resigned from his position as campaign Field Director, and the Arlington County Police have now opened a criminal investigation into the fraud exposed by Project Veritas.

And after she was grilled about our report on CNN, Debbie Wasserman Schultz was forced to admit what the vast majority of Americans have known all along: . . . .

Ideological soft spot for Sharia? Uh-oh.

 

Obama Knew

By on 10.25.12 @ 6:11AM

Did ideological soft spot for Sharia keep U.S government from protecting Benghazi consulate?

Obama knew.

Say again, Obama knew.

So. The question.

If what happened in Benghazi wasn’t incompetence — was it ideology?

Did Sharia kill Ambassador Chris Stevens, Foreign Service officer Sean Smith, and two Navy SEALs?

And is Hillary Clinton’s insistence yesterday that the leaked State Department e-mails were “not evidence” yet more evidence that indicates the Obama White House not only knew what was going on but deliberately turned a blind eye to Benghazi because of that ideology?. . . .

The Extremists Who Report the News

I’m sending Richard Mourdock some money and you should too. I want to explain to you just how extremist the media is on abortion and just how much spinning in favor of killing kids the media does.

According to Gallup polling, roughly a quarter of the population supports Richard Mourdock’s position on abortion — that the only exception in support of abortion should be the life of the mother.

According to Gallup polling, roughly a quarter of the population supports Barack Obama’s position on abortion — any time during pregnancy until the moment of delivery. And of course, we all know that Barack Obama actually supports infanticide too in cases when a baby survives an abortion attempt, but OMG Politifact claims otherwise!!!!!!!

When the media chooses to report stories about abortion, the media consistently chooses to report stories like Richard Mourdock’s statement and Todd Akin’s statement, both of whom believe that children conceived as a result of rape are still human beings entitled not to be ripped apart in utero and scrapped out of the womb or whatever procedure the child killers use these days. As an aside, during the Mourdock controversy few in the media reported that Mourdock’s Democratic opponent has sponsored pro-life legislation with Todd Akin.

Suburbs Swing to Debate-Tested Romney: M. Barone at Real Clear Politics

By Michael Barone – October 25, 2012

Back in May, I wrote a column laying out possible scenarios for the 2012 campaign different from the conventional wisdom that it would be a long, hard slog through a fixed list of target states like the race in 2004.

I thought alternatives were possible because partisan preferences in the half dozen years before 2004 were very stable, while partisan preferences over the last half dozen years have been anything but.

Now, after Mitt Romney’s big victory in the Oct. 3 debate and his solid performances in the Oct. 16 and 22 debates, there is evidence that two of my alternative scenarios may be unfolding.

. . . For the rest, go here.

Where you going? fellow asks me, he coming out of George’s on Oak Park Avenue.

Good question, say I, quipping.

He laughed good-naturedly, but the two of us are 80, and I might have said, Heading for the last roundup.

Oh boy. Aren’t we all?

Excellent interview with co-founder.

Union-run charter school failing

So why are those people smiling?

Gotham Schools reports:

seven years into its existence, the nation’s first union-run school is one of the lowest-performing schools in the city. Fewer than a third of students are reading on grade level, and the math proficiency rate among eighth-graders is less than half the city average….

The United Federation of Teachers, which runs the school under a charter, appears pleased, though.

“I go to that school and I’m very, very happy with what we see,” UFT President Michael Mulgrew said last week. “The parents are great, the teachers are doing a good job. We are very happy.”

It’s defining success down.

CEO Threatens to Fire Employees If Obama Is Reelected and Raises Taxes

CEO:

Now, the economy is falling apart and people like me who made all the right decisions and invested in themselves are being forced to bail out all the people who didn’t. The people that overspent their paychecks suddenly feel entitled to the same luxuries that I earned and sacrificed 42 years of my life for.

‘Tain’t fair.
