” An abscess of anger seems to gnaw at Hillary Clinton, but the reasons for her resentments remain unclear. The world’s oldest party, which governed the nation during two world wars and is the primary architect of America’s regulatory and redistributive state, is eager to give her its presidential nomination, in recognition of . . . what?
The party, adrift in identity politics, clings, as shipwrecked sailors do to floating debris, to this odd feminist heroine. Wafted into the upper reaches of American politics by stolid participation in her eventful marriage to a serial philanderer, her performance in governance has been defined by three failures.
Her husband, having assured the 1992 electorate that voting for him meant getting “two for the price of one,” entrusted to her the project that he, in a harbinger of the next Democratic president’s mistake, made his immediate priority — health-care reform. Senator Daniel Patrick Moynihan urged him to begin with welfare reform, just as wise Democrats wanted President Obama to devote 2009 to economic recovery rather than health care, perhaps sparing the nation six years and counting of economic sluggishness.”

” Obama was very aggressive throughout the debate–perhaps still trying to compensate for his lackluster first debate–using every single question to attack his opponent’s record and policies. That approach may have backfired, as it allowed Romney to strike a calmer, more stable posture. Romney’s apparent strategy was to give up scoring points on particular issues in favor of appealing to war-weary, politics-weary moderate voters.
But that did not mean Romney failed to fight–and fight he did, particularly on the issue of Iran, which he stressed repeatedly as the biggest threat to the U.S. and the greatest failure of the Obama administration. He also repulsed some of Obama’s attacks–when given the opportunity by a moderator who once again showed far greater favor to the incumbent–and occasionally used some of them to pivot to his favored policy points.”
“Romney slams Obama in tough speech”
” Mitt Romney used a tough new campaign speech to personally blast the Obama campaign on Tuesday, saying comments earlier in the day from Vice President Biden are “what an angry and desperate Presidency looks like.”
“Mr. President, take your campaign of division and anger and hate back to Chicago,” Romney
said while campaigning in Ohio.”

“On Milton Friedman’s 100th birthday,progressives hope he’s ‘burning in hell’ ”
Today is the 100th birthday of
capitalist propagandist and
ideologue Milton Friedman. What
are you doing to celebrate his no
milton friedman is burning in hell
for all eternity, forced to limp fuck
ayn rands disgusting holes
Milton Friedman, the man who
perpetuated the horrors of
capitalism, is 100 today. # p2
Such is the leftist mentality that confronts us today …. “Not your grandpa’s democratic party”
” Frum mostly talks about why this statement irks rich people, but I believe it resonates badly with people at all income levels. Lots
of people — most, I hope — are proud of something they’ve achieved in their lives and feel like that achievement owes much to
their own hard work and talents.
You don’t have to make over $250,000 a year to be annoyed when the president mocks people
for taking credit for their achievements. And it’s an especially jarring statement because of what it’s used to justify — higher taxes, with the implication being that they
are called for because people do not deserve their own pre-tax wealth. People are rightly unnerved by an argument that amounts to
“we can tax you because you didn’t deserve this anyway.” Faced with such an argument, defending your own contribution to your success isn’t just a point of pride — it’s an
argument you must make to defend the principle that you are entitled to your own private property. “
What a powerhouse lineup of talent for Al Gore’s prime time schedule . Certain to be Don’t Miss TV . Eeeew
“The new line-up will be Behar, Cenk Uygur, Eliot Spitzer, and Jennifer Granholm, which is dreadful as a four-hour block of political television but might not be half bad as the nucleus of an awful-yet-compulsively-watchable left-wing variety show. Joy in the Joan Rivers host role, Cenk as affable Andy Richter-esque sidekick, Granholm as the straight (wo)man, and Client Number Nine as some sort of Dean Martin figure wandering the set with drink in hand and firing off double entendres to the audience’s delight. Magical.”
We posted a video yesterday of the head of the South Carolina AFL-CIO bashing a Pinata of Gov. Nikki Haley and it should come as no surprise that the battle trickled over to Twitchy .
No real shock in that , but if you want to see the “tolerant” left in all it’s glory read as they compound their error with viciousness .
Hatred seems to be their specialty .
“Stop whining, wing nuts! Governor Nikki Haley totally had a beating coming .”
“Leave it to the GOP to take a
small, dumb controversy and give
it the old “WE’RE SO OUTRAGED,
THIS IS A WAR ON WOMEN”
And they wonder why union membership in the private sector is dwindling . Hell , if it wasn’t for public employee unions there would be next to no graft to be had .
