  “Voters can forgive a candidate who stumbles in the heat of an election,.trapped by “gotcha” questions from journalists, being quoted out of context in cunning TV attack commercials, and in the Twitter age, failing to appreciate that nothing that is said is secret anymore. We all know the game, and Romney has demonstrated that he is not perfect at this game.”

  Mort Zuckerman on the sorry economic state of affairs in the age of “hope & change”

  “It’s time to adjust the gambit that
people in all situations commonly use when reporting results to a supervisor: What do you want first, the good news or the bad? The formula that more aptly applies to the latest indicator of America’s economic predicament is: What do you want first, the bad news or the even worse news? “

   Would someone please explain to us why , with accomplishments like this ,  Barack Obama has even a ghost of a chance at being given a second term ?

    As someone who was part of the workforce during the Carter ” malaise” years I must say that this us the most dismal economic performance in nearly a century .

   All that’s missing are the gas lines …. Oh and an Iranian crisis …. But he’s hard at work on that one now isn’t he ?

  “While Americans might enjoy throwing politically-charged barbs at their neighbors to the north, Canadians now have at least one reason to be smug. For the first time in recent history, the
average Canadian is richer than the
average American, according to a report cited in Toronto’s Globe and Mail .

    And not just by a little. Currently, the average Canadian household is more than $40,000 richer than the average American household. The net worth of the average Canadian household in 2011 was $363,202, compared to around $320,000 for Americans. “

A Drop in Dues , Perhaps ?

This news breaks my heart … Ha

“The AFL-CIO has told Washington Whispers it will redeploy funds away from political candidates smack dab in the middle of election season, the latest sign that the largest federation of unions in the country could be becoming increasingly disillusioned with President Obama.”

   ” Goldstein clarifies that in the new deployment of funds, “Some candidates will get more, some less, some the same — but overall we’ll be focused more on spending resources to build our own structure [that] works for working people instead of others’ own structures.” ”
