 Sequestration Scares Are The Ultimate Washington Wink-Winks

 

 

 

” Put another way, the sequestration scares are lies, pure and simple. Not just bunk, not just distortions or mis-statements, but lies. And every professional politician – Democrat, Republican, Socialist, Independent – in this town knows it.

But the lie of sequestration goes even beyond predictable prevarications like LaHood‘s. The sequestration cuts are from the government’s “baseline” budget, which includes built-in spending increases every year.

So what the professional politicians bewail as a spending cut is actually nothing more than a reduction in the amount that spending will increase each year. The Washington Examiner‘s Byron York did a superb job earlier this week explicating this fact on Greta Van Sustern’s show and in a column that focused specifically on how the Pentagon plays the game.”

Bold is What We Need

“Romney goes bold with Ryan as VP pick”

 

  ” Mitt Romney is not known as a gambling man.  When choosing a running mate, many observers expected Romney to make the safest, most cautious choice — most likely Ohio Sen. Rob Portman.*  By instead choosing Rep. Paul Ryan, Romney is sending a clear signal that he intends to run a more daring and more ideologically vigorous campaign than he has run up to this point.  And in that sense, Romney has now become a gambling man.”

When 1,099 felons vote in race won by 312 ballots

” Still, that’s a total of 243 people either convicted of voter fraud or awaiting trial in an election that
was decided by 312 votes. With 1,099 examples identified by Minnesota Majority, and with
evidence suggesting that felons, when they do vote, strongly favor Democrats, it doesn’t require a leap to suggest there might one day be
proof that Al Franken was elected on the strength of voter fraud. “

Obama: Negative ratings in 37 states, but king of DC

“Gallup has just released Barack Obama’s job approval rating for the first half of 2012, broken down by state, and the news is not encouraging for the president.
Obama’s approval rating is below 50 percent in 37 states, ranging from a 26 percent rating in Utah to a 49 percent rating in Michigan. Obama is at 50 percent or higher in just 13 states, from a 50 percent rating in Minnesota to a 63 percent
rating in Hawaii. The president is most popular in Washington DC, where his job approval rating
is an astonishing 83 percent.”

…but this whole post with updates was just too good for me to resist Bidening from him . Professor please believe me that ,in this instance , imitation is the sincerest form of flattery .

 

” YOU KNOW, I THINK I LIKE THE CUT OF THIS ROMNEY FELLOW’S JIB: Heh: Romney Holds Campaign Event Outside Solyndra HQ. “Solyndra is the failed California-based solar technology company that received more than $500 million in federal stimulus money before it went bankrupt last year. It has since become a mantle of Romney’s argument that Obama doesn’t know how to run the economy.”

Romney’s people kept the event secret for fear of Obama-administration interference.

But wait, it gets better: David Axelrod met by loud pro-Romney crowd. “The event was supposed to have been a secret. The campaign did not announce Mr. Axelrod’s appearance in Mr. Romney’s hometown until early Thursday morning, although word of it leaked out on Twitter late Wednesday.”

Bear in mind , the podium is there for David Axelrod to speak from … Ha Ha Ha . Also note the faces of the crowd . Youthful isn’t it ? 

 

But wait, it gets better still: “Then the Obama goons tried to bully the Romney supporters. Epic fail. The crowd even chanted ‘Cory Booker’ at Axelrod. Hilarious.”

UPDATE: Video: Famous Chicago political organizer … outorganized? Heh. This isn’t the McCain 2008 campaign.

ANOTHER UPDATE: Byron York: Combative Romney Team Hits Obama Coast to Coast.

“The Obama campaign thought they were going to come into our own turf and launch a dishonest sneak attack on Gov. Romney’s record,” says the Romney aide. “We’re not going to allow that to happen. We are going to hold them accountable every single time.”

Punch back twice as hard. ”
