The Republicans. Ran up the Deficit. Did you get that? The thin air up there on Mount Olympus must be getting to him. Here's the real world, Mr. President.
***Senate votes to abandon Budget Control Act. In other words, the Democrats lied when they agreed to budget caps in exchange for getting Republicans to vote to increase the debt limit last year. When will Republicans learn that Democrats are liars and can't be trusted to keep their word?
***Give it up, Newt. Romney sweeps. Hey, I like Newt too. But it ain't gonna happen.
***Where are they now? Mulder and Scully of the X-Files. Yeah, I like that show. I didn't watch it when it was popular, but I've gotten a few DVDs and it's pretty entertaining!
***Hacker-proof pacemaker. Who would want to hack a pacemaker...?
***Obama would rather forgive student loans than create jobs for graduates. As usual, he's focused on the wrong thing.
He ought to be focused on the real problem: There aren't any jobs for college graduates, thanks largely to his policies. But in this story from the AP, "One in Two New Graduates are Jobless or Underemployed," they have an analysis of government data shows that about 1.5 million or 53.6%, of bachelor's degree holders under the age of 25 last year were jobless or underemployed, the highest it's been in 11 years. This AP analysis found that "while there's strong demand in science, education, and health, arts and humanities are floundering." Imagine that! The humanities and the arts are floundering (which is also no surprise), but what kind of courses does the left encourage?
***Okay, this guy has waaaay too much time on his hands...
***Romney hits back. He's gonna have to do a lot of this between now and November, because the attacks from the Left are going to be vicious.
Peppering his speech with such terms as “destiny” and appealing to traditional American notions of hard work and sacrifice, Romney steered clear of any political issue except the stuttering economy and the enduring pain of strapped Americans.
At one point, he paid homage to the campaign slogans of both Ronald Reagan and Bill Clinton in their bids to defeat an incumbent president during economic turmoil.
“Is it easier to make ends meet? Is it easier to sell your home or buy a new one?” he said, as the crowd cheered “NO!”
“Have you saved what you needed for retirement? Are you making more AT your job? Do you have a better chance to get a better job? Are you paying less at the pump?”
“It’s still about the economy,” Romney added, bluntly. “And we’re not stupid.”
***Tell your kids about this man.
In his foxhole on Iwo Jima, he was considered just another worthless black man in a lily-white Navy.
Joseph LaNier, II wore a United States Navy uniform, but as he was in his native rural Columbus, Mississippi, he was segregated. Even in war.
In 1945, Joe became a Navy Seabee in one of the first black Seabee units in U.S. history. He joined the service to help his family out of poverty.
His grandfather was a slave. Joe’s niece was a member of the Little Rock Nine. He watched the injustice in front of him; his friends were beaten because of their color.
Yet today, he does not hate.
Read the whole thing.
***Obama campaign asks union to help cover convention costs. Need I say more?
*** DANG LAXATIVE...
