You can take the political gang out of Chicago, but you can’t take the Chicago out of the gang… and it tends to infect even the non-Chicagoans in the gang. Case in point, Kathleen Sebelius.
I’ll state right up front that I haven’t been watching the Democratic National Convention. However, I also didn’t watch much of the Republican National Convention, tuning in only to see who their “mystery speaker” was, so I’m being close to equal in ignoring the conventions.
However, from the coverage of the conventions, and from the political ads I’ve seen, I’m noticing a pattern. The GOP is running ads explaining both why voters should vote for Romney, as well as why they should not vote for Obama. On the other hand, the Democrats are running mostly ads explaining why they shouldn’t vote for Romney.
It wasn’t supposed to be this way. Obama, his loyal Democrats (what I call Obamacrats), and his elite experts had it all planned out in 2008. Lightbringer Obama would be elected, he’d spread the government money around, take over a large portion of the economy, and bow to foreign leaders to get them to like us again. His re-election in 2012 would be assured, as would a lefty-Democrat-led government for the foreseeable future, allowing America to become a socialist democracy like those in Europe.
The Narrative is all-important at MSNBC, and The Narrative says that there are no minorities in the GOP. Therefore, MSNBC decided not to run any of the speeches by minorities at the RNC last night.
The 2012 presidential contest is the most important election since 1980. Our choice this year is more distinct than the one between Ronald Reagan and Jimmy Carter. In 1980 the economy was mired in stagflation, people were genuinely hurting, and our leader was clueless; even so, we were not facing, as today, national bankruptcy.
Yet another example of a poll being skewed to make Obama look like he is doing better than he really is.
Approaching Tropical Storm Isaac is forcing the GOP to postpone its Monday convention events, though the convention will be officially gaveled into session.
I’ll be honest, I’m not sure if I trust this study or not, but I figured I’d present it for what it’s worth.
If they don’t, there’s a number of reasons they should.
The headline and opening paragraphs of today’s Rasmussen Reports poll are interesting enough, but it’s what is revealed later in the story that’s the real news, as far as I’m concerned.
