Crime Boss

Who Da Biggest Crime Boss in Da Land


 While working as deputy White House chief of staff, President Obama's current campaign manager, Jim Messina, used his AOL account to orchestrate the controversial deal by which drug companies lobbied for and ran ads supporting passage of Obamacare, which was just one example in a government-wide trend.

* key political appointees at the U.S. Department of Energy working on the controversial clean energy loan program made infamous by the Solyndra debacle routinely conducted official government business using private email accounts in an attempt to shield their communication from public exposure via the Freedom of Information Act.

* Political appointees at another federal agency who found a clever way to not only use private email accounts but to rig the system automatically to remove all traces of them from government servers. [Full]

Barry Who?

Stick with it until the end;  it's not what it seems

While not high on production values, this overview of Barry What's-his-name captures the essence of this mysterious man-person.  While I'm unable to detect a single falsehood, I suspect his supporters will balk over questions about his place of birth, and education, but the video makes no claims here, other than "Barry has never released any record." 

My sense is that after he's been removed from office,  we will learn a whole lot more about this man, and those revelations will effectively destroy today's Democrat Party.  Yes, I am in my Cup-half- filled mode just now. 

Your job is to get people who will hate to see this video to watch it.  I suggest lying to them ("... stick with it until the end, it's not what it seems")

Obama and the Jerkstore


Obama and the Jerkstore

Last night on FNC, Charles Krauthammer made a brilliant observation.  He compared Obama's  post debate attack on Romney yesterday as an example of  what I call the Jerkstore effect, after the Seinfeld episode.  The phenomenon where, after you've been squelched in debate,  on the way home you think of all the things you wish you'd said at the time .   Krauthammer used another term for this behavior; does anyone out there remember what it was?  At any rate, it's spot-on.

More Phony Polls

Karl Rove: Can We Believe the Presidential Polls?
Last week's CBS/New York Times poll had Obama ahead by nine points in Florida. That's not very likely.

If nothing else,  this is the first election cycle ever where the ubiquitous phony media poll results have been questioned so broadly.  Karl Rove's remembrance is my best example, because I remember the Reagan Carter fraud so well.

Res Ipsa Loquitor

I've seen a movie like this one before. I was in my 20s and director of the Texas Victory Committee for Reagan-Bush. Our headquarters was in an old mortuary in Austin. That seemed an appropriate venue when, on Oct. 8, 1980, the New York Times released its poll on the presidential race in Texas, one of 10 battlegrounds. (Yes, the Lone Star State was then a battleground.)

According to the Times, the contest was "a virtual dead heat," with President Jimmy Carter ahead despite earlier surveys showing Ronald Reagan winning. A large Hispanic turnout for Mr. Carter—and the fact that Texas was "far more Democratic than the nation" (only 16% of Texans identified themselves as Republicans then)—meant that Mr. Reagan "must do better among independents" to carry the state. Our hurriedly called strategy session at the mortuary had more than the normal complement of hand-wringers.

Then came more hard punches. On Oct. 13, Gallup put the race nationally at Carter 44%, Reagan 40%. The bottom appeared to fall out two weeks later when a new national Gallup poll had Carter 47%, Reagan 39%.  [ Can We Believe the Presidential Polls? ]

I'll never forget when, back in the  wonderful 70's  (the worst decade in American history),  the FCC issued a cease and desist against a floor wax commercial—because it falsely depicted a woman gliding over her kitchen floor, genie like, after using it.  Evidently there had been complaints from disappointed consumers when they didn't levitate.  If the government can have dominion over fantasy,  it can certainly find a way to stop media from using these  polls to create false news to sway an electorate into supporting an ideology.
