. . . If President Obama carries only those states where he had a net positive approval rating in 2011 (e.g. Michigan where he is up 48 percent to 44 percent), Obama would lose the 2012 election to the Republican nominee 323 electoral votes to 215.
(see all that red? democrats would say those are real racist states! )
Obama stuck his finger in Prime Minister Netanyahu’s chest, but bowed to the Saudi King. When he visited Turkey, he made no mention of the Turkish settlements in occupied Cyprus, but when Biden visited Israel, he threw a fit over a partial approval for a few houses in Jerusalem. The United States doesn’t fund many terrorist groups, but the bulk of the funding that it allots to terrorists goes to terrorists operating in Israel and killing Israelis.

TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) — Local Congresswoman and chair of the Democratic National Committee Debbie Wasserman Schultz is President Obama’s biggest cheerleader, and that was apparent in her interview with Jack, Tedd and Corey on AM Tampa Bay.
When asked about whether or not she was happy with the results of the Florida GOP Presidential Primary Tuesday night, she said “happy” wouldn’t quite describe her feelings: “(The candidates) have been trying to out right-wing eachother during the entire primary. . . I think that’s why Mitt Romney, in addition to running an unprecidently negative campaign, he’s being hurt among independent and moderate voters nationally.”
Host Tedd Webb asked about how she could call Mitt Romney a “right-winger” she replied, “Um, because it’s true.” She went on to say that she “would consider (President Obama) someone who is a moderate who stands up for the middle class. Stands up for the working class. . .”
In reference to the platform that President Obama will run on in November, Wasserman Schultz said, “(He’s) going to run on his remarkable record of accomplishment.”
(does she really believe the shit she speaks?)
Moveon.org launched a campaign Wednesday against the “the world’s largest breast cancer organization” Susan G. Komen for the Cure.
“Susan G. Komen for the Cure just cut all its funding to Planned Parenthood for breast health screenings, bowing to anti-choice pressure and making breast health care suddenly inaccessible to many women,” the liberal group wrote in an email to supporters.
Komen announced Tuesday night that they will no longer be awarding the abortion provider Planned Parenthood with grants due to a new policy prohibiting Komen from giving to institutions under investigation by government bodies.
Planned Parenthood is currently facing a congressional investigation into whether taxpayer funds went toward abortions.
(all the more reason for everyone to support Susan G. Komen for the Cure when the democrats sic all their liberal assholes on them)
Husband’s Resume Already Lost In Federal Bureaucracy Geesh…don’t give anything to Obama when he asks!
There’s a very curious op-ed in The Los Angeles Times today by Rosa Brooks, who is identified as “a professor of law at the Georgetown University Law Center and a fellow at the New America Foundation.” She has a curious and disagreeable premise:
Stung by Republican attacks, Obama has been insisting that he’s no declinist. In last week’s State of the Union address, he nearly out-Romneyed Romney, proclaiming, “Anyone who tells you that America is in decline or that our influence has waned, doesn’t know what they’re talking about.”
That’s dangerous pabulum. Any honest diplomat will tell you that American power and global influence is waning, and if we shy away from acknowledging that fact, we’ll only speed up the process.
By many measures, we’ve hollowed out the American dream: American life expectancy ranks well below that of other industrialized democracies, and the same is true for infant mortality rates and elementary school enrollment rates. We have the highest documented per capita incarceration rate in the world. And as the Occupy Wall Street movement has helped point out, we have greater income inequality in this country than in any other state in the developed world — and most states in the developing world.
America’s in decline? That’s a debatable proposition, though clearly Brooks is doing her level best to make it a self-fulfilling prophecy. However, it’s an astonishing statement to make considering what was left out of Brooks’s bio at the end of the piece. Brooks is formerly a “Counselor to the Under Secretary of Defense for Policy” in the Obama administration.
