    I’ve seen political charts that have Montana as a toss-up state this year. But if this poll is accurate, it won’t even be close – Romney is rockin’ the cowboy – vote.

  4. marc says:

    88 million working age Americans not in the workforce. That is simply an amazing number.

    We know know what he meant by Hope and Chnage.

  5. Phil says:

    Bush carried Montana by 21 against Kerry.

  6. Phil says:

    Friday dump:

    Obama tightens regulations on fracking. Requires a “water management” plan be filed, disclosure of chemicals used (I’m sure there’s a huge form for this about an inch thick0 and more testing for oil and gas.


  7. jason says:

    If Montana is close we is screwed. Actually I think Romney will win MT by 56-44 or so, he will get most of the undecided.

  8. Phil says:

    Bush beat Gore in Montana by 25 – of course that was with Nader getting more than 5 percent.

  9. Barrett says:

    Romney wins MT by more than 10 points I think

  10. NedStark says:

    I agree with Jason, I think it is a 11-12 point victory in Montana. Montana is not a problem.

    “Who the He*l is Julia? And, why am I paying for her whole life?”

    ….perhaps, this dem ad went a bit too far down the nanny-state road to appeal to the appetite of the average American.

  12. NYCmike says:

    In regards to Run Fast, Run Quick Elizabeth Warren, would it be better that this story goes away, and let her just be damaged goods come November? This happening now leaves too much time for someone else to jump in.

  13. NedStark says:

    Bush beat Gore by 25 after 8 years of Clinton. Romney will beat Obama by 11-12 points 4 years after the greatest political kool-aid drinking era in American history (of which Obama still lost by 3).

    You endorsing me? Thanks.

    Just another example of the Obama Administration’s transparency —> not!

    Congress revolts on Obama plan that would ban ‘Buy American’

    A group of 68 House Democrats and one Republican sent a letter to President Barack Obama on Thursday urging him to reconsider an element of the controversial free trade agreement currently being negotiated by the administration. If approved in its current form, the pact would effectively ban “Buy American” policies in government contracting.

    Although the deal, known as the Trans-Pacific Partnership, has received relatively little media attention in the United States, it has sparked international friction among consumer groups and environmental activists who worry that terms demanded by the Obama administration will eliminate important public protections. Domestically, however, the deal’s primary source of political tension is from a portion that could ban “Buy American” provisions — a restriction that opponents emphasize would crimp U.S. jobs.

  16. janz says:


    Was that ‘Julia’ piece posted by you created by the “Suitably Flip” blog, or was it from the Romney campaign? It was great!

    Montana is a strange state. Remember Clinton won it back in 1992 b/c of the Perot vote but recently and it’s not b/c of demographic changes the voters in that state have been more open to voting for Obama then they were Kerry or Gore.

  19. Diogenes says:

    The banning of buy America is a good idea. Free Trade makes all parties better off. Most of the contracts would go to American companies anyways but exposed to foreign competition would keep them more honest. This is not a mark against Obama.

  20. Californian’s flee their state because the Democrat’s policies there have been a disaster. Unfortunely, when they go to the other Western states, they bring their Democrat voting politics with them. That and the influx of immigrants (whether of not they are citizens) fleeing socialism also vote for these same kind of politicians.

    Yes, this goes all the way up to Montana. Fortunately, they look next door at North Dakota’s success and are starting to remember who’s policies actually helps the economy.

  21. janz says:

    Michelle Malkin’s take on Julia.

    I told my 11-year-old daughter about “Julia.” She had one word: “Creepy.” I’m doing my job right.

    This ad will help create some family conversations….it appears to have longer legs than the dems probably anticipated.

    not sure jan. I don’t think it is romney’s. I found on twitter.

    #julia is a trip!

  24. AuthorLMendez, Liberterian For Romney says:

    Obama gets appeal in MT, he barely lost it in 08 and I don’t expect a landslide here this November. However, Obama will most likely lose the state and lose it worse then he did in 08.

    We should have a contest for best Indian name for Pocahontas Warren.

  26. Walt says:

    CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) — West Virginia’s general tax collections fell below their estimate for the second consecutive month in April, further eroding a potential surplus for the budget year.

    The state is counting on $65 million in excess revenue from the current budget year, which ends June 30, to fund the Medicaid health care program. Despite the back-to-back misses, officials continue to predict a surplus.

    The state severance tax on coal and other extracted natural resources brought in $16 million less than projected in March and April, though its collections remain up by $13.7 million year-to-date.

    “The severance tax is beginning to tread water a little bit, after some significant growth in the beginning of the year,” Muchow said. “I suspect that has to do with lower coal production as well as much lower natural gas prices. There’s also some softness in the coal pricing area, particularly the futures market.”

    Alpha posts $29.1 million loss, to cut production

    Charleston Daily Mail

    CHARLESTON, W.Va. — Alpha Natural Resources Inc. has reported a first-quarter net loss of $29.1 million or 13 cents a share on revenue of $1.9 billion.

    Facing weak demand for steam coal used by power companies to generate electricity, Alpha announced production cuts in February that will reduce annual output by about 4 million tons.

    Kevin Crutchfield, Alpha’s chief executive officer, hinted that even bigger cuts are in the works.

    Since the February cuts, “unusually mild winter weather and decade-low natural gas prices have significantly reduced domestic steam coal consumption and driven utility inventories to near record levels,” he said in a prepared statement. “In response coal producers continue to announce plans to reduce production. Alpha plans to introduce additional production adjustments in the near future.”

    The changes to be announced will reduce Alpha’s steam coal production by the equivalent of an additional 7 million tons a year, he said.

    The market for low-quality metallurgical coal also has weakened so Alpha will reduce production by the equivalent of 500,000 tons a year, Crutchfield said. Metallurgical coal is used in steelmaking.


    On Tuesday Arch Coal Inc. said “severe weakness” in the U.S. market for steam coal cut into its earnings and prompted it to reduce production.

    Are you stupid, Walt? 8.2% is less than 8.1% 115,000 NEW JOBS is better than 0 new jobs. Obama is bringing us back!

    Better polling in Ohio & WI —> close!

  37. BayernFan says:

    Regarding Indiana, Lugar has always been very good at voting correctly when it really counted.

    Of course, he could vote the wrong way when it didnt matter in order to burnish his own legacy. Most politicians do this. Dem Evan Bayh was a master at this.

    But Lugar didnt forsee the Tea Party movement, and was not savvy enough to realize that even meaningless votes FOR Obama’s COTUS picks, for example, would have tremendous impact on his political viability this time around.

    He effed up. It happens. Now he will pay the price.

    Just like Crist did.

  38. Apologetic California says:

    It looks like Obama will finish May with a 48 percent approval rating. But since adults include composite racist white b!tches and girls with daddy issues like Julia, he’ll be 1 pt behind Mitt in the horserace polling comprised of registered voters.

    They polled a lot of Tonys and Robbies….

    “If the selection of Mitt Romney’s running mate were left up to Republican voters, right now the choice would be a tossup between Rick Santorum and Marco Rubio—but not by much.

    A Reuters/Ipsos poll released Thursday night showed that Santorum led the pack in a list of 19 running mates, with 18 percent of Republican voters choosing him just slightly over Rubio, who received the support of 17 percent. Behind them, 13 percent liked New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie; the same number preferred former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush”

  59. jason says:

    Speaking of Wobbies, as soon as Romney clinched he faded into the sunset of trolls of yore…..

  64. jason says:

    Poor Wobbie Troll was a one trick troll. Romney can’t get the nomination, 85% of Rs hate him.

    It’s hard to diversify after you box yourself into that narrative.

    MD – I will. Should I tell your wife if the plane crashes? She told me that you have been dead to her for years.

  68. EML says:

    A little down in the weeds but…

    Democrats were trying to recruit a Republican ex-Congressman to run against Tim Walberg in MI-07. Today he said he wasn’t going to run. That leaves Dems with a single candidate who has raised less than $7,000, $5K of which was a loan. Cook has MI-07 as Likely Republican, but it should be moved to Safe R. One less 2010 seat we have to worry about.

  69. DW says:

    67…I remember weeks ago I wasted several minutes here arguing with Robbie as to his proposition that Romney couldn’t get the delegates he needed prior to the convention.

    As it turned out, it played out just like I said it would. The momentum would swiftly turn toward Romney as Santourm’s chances looked less and less.

  70. jan says:

    The Indian fiasco really touches a cord in a liberal state like Massachusetts. Filled with ethnic working class white men and women who normally vote Democrat but who are also sensitive to the fact that an elitist like Warren was trying to gaming the very system people like her put in place to the determinant of working class whites who suffer under that very system.

  71. jason says:

    Walberg was a lock anyway, but sounds like he can save some money.

  72. jan says:

    Political analyst Larry Sabato is more blunt:

    “This takes her biography into a bizarre dimension,” said Larry Sabato, director of the University of Virginia Center for Politics. “It has derailed the effort to define Warren in a voter-friendly way.”

    Sabato also said that Warren’s claim that she didn’t list herself as a minority to gain an employment advantage is not believable.

    “This is what happens when candidates don’t tell the truth,” he said. “It’s pretty obvious she was using (the minority listing) for career advancement.”

  73. Scurrying Rat says:

    ” an elitist like Warren ”

    Tanney looks like a good prospect

  84. janz says:

    Just to augment Barrett’s recommendation, to send money to Walker, everyone should view this film, Anarchy 101 — how Wisconsin’s left embrases chaos, to see the behind-the-scenes WI not depicted in the evening news.

    What I increasingly believe is that WI has become a political petri dish for what is to come in America —what grows or dies here is what will prevail for the rest of the country.

  85. marc says:

    Tory/Lib Dem coalition government suffers huge defeat in midterm local elections but likely to hold on to premier London Mayoralty of Boris Johnson.

  86. GF says:

    89- Actually, the Tory losses aren’t that bad and seem to be in line for a mid-term over there. The councils are split into staggered elctoral groups, much like our Senate classes. That, and a huge chunk of the Labour gains came at the expense of the Lib Dems. Losses are never anything to crow about, but -400 is not doom and gloom territory in a British council election. Ultimately, Labour will have to convince the nation three years hence that it is a different party. By then, the sting of budget cuts will have passed and hopefully, they will have moved into something of a recovery.

    “US President Barack Obama on Friday shrugged off a disappointing Labor Department report on jobs growth, and said he would press Congress to pass “common sense” measures to create employment.

    Obama chose to focus on the fact that the rate of unemployment dropped from 8.2 percent from 8.1 percent, not the headline number showing the economy created only a net 115,000 jobs last month, below market expectations.”

    Never heard of yankee bowling…. but we don’t want it.

  130. SoHope says:

    I am required to officially back Tim V, but since Bitter has been secretly provided the minutes to every Philly A-hole meeting to Team Evangelical in exchange for preferentual afterlife placement, he has earned protected status.

    As a point of honor they will both be allowed one parting blow and this battle will be settled in full.

    Who will go first?

  131. Bitterlaw says:

    Tim V. – We should save our energy for later. The unemployment numbers sucked so Add will be by later screaming GFY to all of us. Cream soda.

    cream soda ?

  135. GF says:

    I doubt Sarko will pull it off (he’s angered so many people over there not only due to policies, but his general personality), but if he does, it will be due to 1) an uninspiring opponent, and 2) the slimmest majority of Frenchmen will see the folly of electing a full blown Socialist to guide their nation through a rough economic patch.

  136. Tim V says:

    wahkeena ask them if they have rattlesnakes at church.

  137. Bitterlaw says:

    Mr. Vito – Don’t worry gets the fake minutes. Hope really thinks Mr. NO DEAL speaks in long sentences?

  140. Tim V says:

    I shouldn’t hope for a poor economy but if we get job numbers like this for a few more months and then even some job losses in sept/oct then obama would be much more likely to lose.

    A few more months of pain for better times for 4 years is not a bad trade off.

  141. Tim V says:

    bitter, I’m not worthy to compete with you in put downs.

  142. Bitterlaw says:

    Tim V. – you need to focus on my flaws. Bad teeth. A lawyer who isn’t wealthy. Sometimes I’m too tired to satisfy MD’s wife a third time. Work on it.

    i just cannot believe i might have to live in mississippi

    #160, I wonder how much land Elizabeth Warren gets? Boston, maybe?

  155. lisab says:

    well … maybe we could give back mississippi and arkansas


    i cannot believe the best job opportunities for my husband these days are indonesia, mongolia, arkansas and mississippi


    the really sad part is … house prices in mongolia are HIGHER than mississippi

  161. Bitterlaw says:

    I didn’t know lisab’s husband drove a tractor.

  162. lisab says:

    actually he grew up on a far

    his learned to drive on a farm truck

  163. lisab says:

    farm not far … although it does seem far

    if yhou do move to the south there is a new backyard game that has become all the rage. It involves taking turns throwing small bags filled with

    So do not get offended if you move there and a neighbor comes up and asks you if you would like over to their back yard to play…

    (that game) [rhymes with “Torn Mole”]
    Many outside the south either snicker loudly or get real offended when ask it the want to play (that game). I do wish they would call it Bean Bag Hole Toss or something other than what they call it.

  165. Walt says:


    “In the south, “far” is what you put wooter on to put out.

  169. Walt says:

    Mr. Vito

    Are you the sock puppet on the right?

  170. Tony says:

    I think Ras is dead wrong on this poll. 7%+ Obama in Montana would be possible given the number of Democrats in the state, but I have yet to talk to one person in the last 3+ years who will even admit to voting for him.

    MT Romney +7

  171. Mr. Vito says:

    “Mr. Vito

    Are you the sock puppet on the right?”

    No, but that was a nice set of honkers.

  172. Walt says:


    All the potential ugliness and social awkwardness would be eliminated if everyone would just put beans in the bags.

    Perhaps those who are less than “straight” should use corn.

  173. lisab says:

    “asks if yer miters are growed or boughten”

    what is a miter?

  174. Bitterlaw says:

    well, ok it is a little funny …

    but seriously, i may have to live extended periods of time away from my husband, which sucks. i don’t think i could live every day in mississippi

  177. Walt says:

    Mr. Vito–

    You need to thank me for teeing that up for you.
    I expect SSQ will be here soon to admonish you for talking about “a nice set of honkers.”

  178. Tim Tebow says:

    I would just like to thank my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

  179. Walt says:

    Mr. Vito–

    That was a nice set of tomatoes.


  180. RickPerrysParakeet says:

    I’m joking MS is very nice the people are very.nice don’t.go in there with a bad attitude

  181. lisab says:

    so they call tomatoes “miters”

    this will be me in the south

    “Malaprop Hollywood” nice pig you got there malaprop

  183. Walt says:

    “i don’t think i could live every day in mississippi”

    “Fiddle-de-dee!!. Ah do not reckon I can bear to suffer a-livin’ in Mizzuhzippah ev’ry blessed da-hee!!!”
    You will be ok, lisab. You can take turns spending each weekend just across the border in TN, then, LA, then AL, etc.

  184. Bitterlaw says:

    Just think, lisab. After MFG gets his wish of a New Confederate States of America, you will be living in a foreign country Remember to pack your US passport.

    “After MFG gets his wish of a New Confederate States of America, you will be living in a foreign country Remember to pack your US passport.”

    i thought it was a foreign country

  188. lisab says:

    true story … during his phone interview, they mentioned that mississippi was very far and culturally different from massachusetts and asked if i could adapt ok …

    he said i lived in a bamboo hut in asia so i would probably be ok

    they laughed

    (i did not)

  189. lisab's eunuch says:

    ” i may have to live extended periods of time away from my husband, ”

    On the other hand….

  190. Walt says:

    “this will be me in the south”

    tallness and hair.

    Walt gets a 7.3 only because he stuck the landing.

  195. addisonst says:

    Wait til malaprop finds out she can have a huge house for 250 and no state income taxes. On 80 k and out of mass she will have 8 for implants.

  196. jason says:

    She will feel lonely and abandoned, pining for the warmth and comfort of the nanny state making all difficult decisions for her.

    Also I think the last vegetarian in MS was executed in 1989….

  197. addisonst says:

    Mississippi executes people for being vegetarian? Cool.

  198. addisonst says:

    We should make death row tenants watch the bull and sixer. But the 9th circuit would get that stopped. And they’d actually be right

  199. Mr. Vito says:

    “Also I think the last vegetarian in MS was executed in 1989…”

    and served up with a side of fries…

  200. jason says:

    It’s more of a mercy killing. They figure vegetarians are so miserable they need killing.

  201. lisab says:

    “Wait til malaprop finds out she can have a huge house for 250 and no state income taxes. ”

    actually we are going for the salary

    in my husband’s line of work you go where there is a project and then you move on. no chance really of buying a house.

  202. addisonst says:

    Yes chance of taking your state tax savings and investing in silicon.

    Mississippi Coon Recipe

    Carol’s Coon
    Take one large coon, skin and clean being sure to remove musk glands from legs. Put coon in large roasting pan and cover with water. Put 4 large yellow onions, 2 complete stalks of celery, tops included and salt and pepper to taste. Boil the coon until very tender. Pour off all liquid and set aside. Discard onions and celery.Prepare 1 quart of brown gravy and pour over coon in roasting pan. Place 8-10 large sweet potatoes (already cooked) around coon and cover. Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour.
    Prepare large pot of turnip greens and 3-4 black skillets of cornbread. Place kitchen towel at each place amt and 2 pots of hot water on table because there will be grease from ear to ear on each guest when the bottom of the pan is licked. There is no better way to cook a coon!!

  204. addisonst says:

    So there are no jobs to be had in mass and you and tom joad are migrating to a lower tax state where there is work. I cannot believe massachusetts doesn’t have work with their amazing health care.

  205. jason says:

    They don’t have Romneycare in MS. I wouldn’t go. Also don’t mention the word “union” there, it has a different connotation.

  206. addisonst says:

    The sixer is going to need ot to break 80 at home against a cba team

  207. addisonst says:

    The massachusetts miracle left malaprop leaving the state. Like many others. By 2012 they’ll be single digit evs.

  208. addisonst says:

    If they had romneycare in ole miss people would have skidmarks leaving that state too

  209. addisonst says:

    You know who else has left this site? People who used to say pujols was clean. Funny what happens when u change teams and can’t juice.

  210. Mr. Vito says:

    I hate skidmarks.

  211. jason says:

    Going over my Derby picks. I wish I knew if the track was going to be wet or not.

  212. Bitterlaw says:

    jason – the track will be wet or not wet. Bet accordingly. Share your winnings with me for that insight.

  213. addisonst says:

    Sixers might win w out 80. The nba needs a 8 second clock

  214. lisab says:

    “So there are no jobs to be had in mass ”

    there are jobs in mass, but there is more competition. his last job in massachusetts had 41 applicants. for arkansas there were 9 and in mississippi there were 5. probably because of the number of schools here in massachusetts.

    my husband is something called a cisco engineer, they tend to get hired by project not as an employee.

    the project he is up for is for two years.

  215. lisab says:

    “They don’t have Romneycare in MS. I wouldn’t go”

    actually that is a consideration. i may be staying here for a while.

  216. lisab says:

    “The massachusetts miracle left malaprop leaving the state. Like many others. By 2012 they’ll be single digit evs.”

    our population is increasing, but the problem is the price of housing.

    you cannot buy a birdhouse here for less than $300,000

  217. jason says:

    221. I would rather not have to make two sets of bets. There is a horse that is a real mudder called El Padrino. I would put him in a couple combinations if the track is wet.

  218. addisonst says:

    Mass is losing evs. Why is that again? The health care? The colleges? The great people? The health care system in mass is broken. As are the taxes.

  219. Bitterlaw says:

    Mississippi has 6 EVs. Mass. has 11. Maybe they will even out by 2048.

  220. Julia says:

    “actually that is a consideration. i may be staying here for a while.”

    You no-go girl!!!!

    If someone else is paying for your health care, you’d be a fool to leave.

  221. Julia says:

    Hey – I’m Julia. Ask Phil. We bonded.

  222. Mr. Vito says:

    I bet my money on the bob-tailed nag…

    You should bet on the bay.

  223. Bitterlaw says:

    Doo Da. Doo Da.

  224. addisonst says:

    Mass used to have 14.

  225. addisonst says:

    Cudos to philly. Won without breaking 80 and down 13 with 9 mins left

  226. jason says:

    Romneycare is a disaster. But I don’t blame Romney, some of the worst provisions were enacted by the Dems in the legislature over his veto and then continued to be expanded.

    “Romney opposed the employer mandate requiring small businesses with 11 or more employees to provide health insurance. In his view, an employer mandate was an unnecessary burden on businesses in the state. Romney believed that the employer mandate would harm low-profit-margin businesses (such as new or struggling businesses) and that it could reduce wages, or distort employment patterns.”

    Romney also opposed dental and optical coverage, and he wanted even the poor to pay something. He vetoed the medicaid expansion for children.

    Of course later Patrick added an expensive prescription drug benefit and set the state’s share of the premiums way above the level Romney deemed affordable.

  227. Julia II says:

    Sorry Julia.

  228. Bitterlaw says:

    Well, I think the Bulls have proven that Rose is MVP. The Sixers desrve to be an 8 seed. The Bulls have more talent than they do.

  229. addisonst says:

    If we made all jihadists watch a tape of that game they would put down their weapons. My life is worse for having watched that

  230. Bitterlaw says:

    Well, Ad, I switched back and forth between an 11 inning Phillies loss and the 76ers win. The glassis half full.

  231. Brandon says:

    Sixers baby! What a game! Bye bye Noah.

  232. addisonst says:

    You are playing w house money. Enjoy

  233. Bitterlaw says:

    Somebody has to lose to the Heat. Why not the 76ers!?

  234. Bitterlaw says:

    I still expect the 76ers to lose in 6 or 7 games. But tonight – the Philly A-holes celebrate:

  235. Bitterlaw says:

    I was going to post a video of a very flat chested Korean woman giving instructions (in Korean) on breast elf-exam. While I wanted to help all of you, I do not want to get banned.

  236. Brandon says:

    Sixers wouldn’t play the Heat until the Conference Finals if they get there. It would be either Boston or Atlanta next who the Sixers can beat.

  237. Bitterlaw says:

    Well, Jimmy Johnson is pushing “male enhancement” pills on tv. Wow. I guess he just didn’t make enough money in coaching and television.

  238. Mr. Vito says:

    “breast elf-exam”

    Elves are pretty.

    Not the santa claus kind… they makes us wear those stupid jingle bells and step in reindeer poo. It ain’t the glamor you see in those Christmas movies.

  239. addisonst says:

    Um the sixers cannot beat atl or bos. They can beat a roseless bull team without scoring 80. The bull can’t beat atl or bos either.

  240. Mr. Vito says:

    “male enhancement” pills…

    totally sexist… imagine the stink if they called breast enlargement “female enhancement”, as if everything about a woman was wrapped up in her bosoms?

  241. Mr. Vito says:

    And I consider myself an expert, considering my compadres and I are the old standby for male and female enhancement.

  242. Bitterlaw says:

    Mr. Vito – When is MD getting home? I need to get back to my house in time.

  243. Walt says:

    UN: USA should return stolen land to Indian tribes…

    That kind of talk is so 1790s…

  244. Bitterlaw says:

    I like real ones. Well, in theory since I’m married and there won’t be any new ones in my life. I wonder if women have changed since 1990?

  245. Mr. Vito says:

    “the storrmtrooper ha entered the base”… repeat “the stormtrooper has entered the base”


  246. Adam and Eve says:

    Indian land? WTF? What about our land? Waaahhhh. We sold Manhattan for beads. How about us? 1 f***ing apple!

  247. Mr. Vito says:

    “UN: USA should return stolen land to Indian tribes…”

    What would be left?

  248. Bitterlaw says:

    Thanks, Mr. Vito. That as close. Good thing he was tanked when he drove up. I was going to leave him face up in the driveway but it’s raining. I left him on his side. Under a tree. In a thunderstorm. He should be fine.

  249. jason says:

    The Lakers were down 24 in the first half before someone told them the game started.

    Can we have the casinos?

  251. Saber Tooth Tigers says:

    Give us our freaking land back and put more mammoths in while you are at it.

  257. Jerry muthertruckin' Cruncher says:

    The Washington Post today digs into voter registration numbers that should leave the Barack Obama campaign a bit worried: among black and Hispanic voters ? especially in key states and districts ? voter registration is trending sharply down.?

    Consider these numbers: Registration among Hispanics nationwide is down 5 percent. But even more troubling is in key swing states like New Mexico and Florida, where registration is down 28 and 10 percent, respectively.?

    The decline in minority registration ?is obviously an area of concern,? said Democratic strategist Simon Rosenberg, president of NDN, a left-leaning think tank.

    But he predicted the Obama campaign ?will have enough money and enough focus to mitigate the problem. .?.?. They have five months to get the electorate looking the way they want.?

    But?this is why the Obama campaign and Democrats should be severely concerned:?According to that Pew Research Center survey, the 2008 electorate “was the most racially and ethnically diverse in U.S. history, with nearly one-in-four votes cast by non-whites.”?

    Two important tables here. First:

    [Hispanic black voter registration]

    The voter registration for both black and Hispanic voters rose by a combined 7.6 percent in the 2008 election.?

    Now this:

    [attached image]

    That shows how voter registration affected turnout. And in overwhelming numbers, those voters picked Obama. He won the Latino vote 67 percent to John McCain’s 30 percent, and only 5 percent of black voters picked McCain.?

    But in a twist, this could also provide the Republican Party, led by its first national Director of Hispanic Outreach, Bettina Inclan, with an opportunity to pounce with its never-before-seen strategy to appeal for the Hispanic vote.?

    ?I think the more we talk about the issues and the more we have Republicans going into local communities and saying, ?This is what Republicans believe in. This is what Democrats believe in,? Hispanics are going to make decisions for themselves,”

    #248. They were 3-0 against Atlanta and 2-1 against Boston this season.

  263. addisonst says:

    So what? Do you understand that the regular season does not matter? No I guess you don’t, what part of 8 seed don’t you understand?

  264. Brandon says:

    Okay, it is absolutely meaningless that they already have beaten the teams that they will have to play next.

  265. lisab says:

    “Mass is losing evs. Why is that again? ”

    the demand for houses is so great here, and the supply so small, that people cannot afford to move here.

  266. jason says:

    Lakers lose…

  267. jason says:

    ” the demand for houses is so great here, and the supply so small, that people cannot afford to move here.”

    Right, and in a free market investors and developers would be building to meet the demand.

    But nobody wants to run the risk of investing in a ridiculously over regulated and over taxed environment.

    As of May 4:

    about 44,000 total early voters.
    (but not all 55 counties have provided complete updates to WV SOS yet)

    About 4400 Indies.

    Rest split about 2 to 1 D to R early voters.
    No surprises.

    Biggest statewide races on the D side.

    6 Ds running in primary for 2 SC judge positions.

    4 Ds running for Commissioner of Agriculturecounty level

    All of the other action involves races at the county level and that varies county by county.
    Election Day is Tuesday.
    Sen. Manchin expected to cruise against a primary opponent. I predict Manchin will get 80-85%

    Same with Gov. Tomblin with his primary opponent.

  281. mnw says:


    You were ABSOLUTELY correct about drug addicts |& alkies exploiting SSA.

    Criminals call SSA “crazy checks,” & about 75% of all those who come before a judge for sentencing are getting them.

    Btw, drug/alkie disability & mental/emotional disability are quite compatible, SSA claim-wise!

    I don’t know if SSA is the most abused govt program in the country, or not. Medicare/Medicaid could give it a close run.

  282. Scott says:

    The weak numbers were no surprise to me.

    zero 47

    For some reason, RAS doesn’t give overall appv/disappv #s for zero today.

  285. Hall Monitor says:

    The day of making fun of someones ethnicity has ended. When the Polish pope, Pope John Paul II, became pope of the Catholic Church, polish jokes subsided and eventually ended out of respect for him.
    The jokes we called “funny” are now taken as RACIST. Although many don’t want to give them up, it makes the person telling the ethnic joke look ignorantly insensitive, especially if you are caucasian. If you want to win elections, you are wise to use restraint in your choice of so called “good humor.”

  286. Tina says:

    Obumbler at 50 percent approval today in Ras.

  287. mnw says:

    What I meant was, RAS gives zero 49/49 appv/disappv, but RAS omitted that “strongly appv/strongly disappv” thing he usually gives.

  288. mnw says:


    27/38 = strong appv vs strong disappv for zero

    Looks like zero went UP on the day the “weak job numbers” came out.

    We will be fine as long as we continue to convince 500,000 every month or two to quit looking for a job, drop out of the job market and stay the h3ll home.

    So what if we have a smaller % of people working or seeking jobs since 1981. I’m trying to get to 1960 numbers!

    Yes,Ras has recently been “generous” to the O Man in his national approval/ disapproval polling,but appears to be right down the middle in his State polling and national head-to-head between Romney and Obama.

    You won’t believe this, but it’s twue!

    ALL the lefty sites are full of lead articles about “Ann Romney’s $900 blouse.”

    We are so doomed.

    ” What kind of tricks, cheats and shenanigans does Charlie Webster have planned?”

    He is probably going to try to keep Paulbots from subverting the caucus results, the tricky cheater.

  296. jason says:

    Ann Romney should understand that if you want to appear in touch you should take vacations in low income areas like Martha’s Vineyard and try to help the Spanish economy by going on lavish junkets there.

    Don’t miss this skewering of “Elizabeth Fauxcahontas Crockagawea Warren”

    A highlight:

    Just in case you’re having difficulty keeping up with all these Composite Americans, George Zimmerman, the son of a Peruvian mestiza, is the embodiment of endemic white racism and the reincarnation of Bull Connor, but Elizabeth Warren, the great-great-great-granddaughter of someone who might possibly have been listed as Cherokee on an application for a marriage license, is a heartwarming testimony to how minorities are shattering the glass ceiling in Harvard Yard. George Zimmerman, redneck; Elizabeth Warren, redskin. Under the Third Reich’s Nuremberg Laws, Ms. Warren would have been classified as Aryan and Mr. Zimmerman as non-Aryan. Now it’s the other way round. Progress!
