Romney Leads By 7% in MO, GOP Leads McCaskill

Once again, Public Policy Polling and Scott Rasmussen are living in two different worlds. One week after PPP claimed Barack Obama was ahead in Missouri, Rasmussen comes out with a new poll showing Mitt Romney in the lead by 7%.

PRESIDENT – MISSOURI (Rasmussen)
Mitt Romney (R) 49%
Barack Obama (D-inc) 42%

Two polls taken one week apart among supposedly the same exact population showing an eight percentage-point difference. Also in Missouri, Rasmussen is showing the Republican candidates with decent-sized leads over Democrat Claire McCaskill.

US SENATE – MISSOURI (Rasmussen)
Sarah Steelman (R) 51%
Claire McCaskill (D-inc) 39%

John Brunner (R) 51%
Claire McCaskill (D-inc) 41%

Todd Akin (R) 50%
Claire McCaskill (D-inc) 42%

This poll was done June 7th among 500 likely voters.

    “Summer Holidays coming up….

    June 17…Father’s Day…hope Bitter will get new socks.
    July 4th….Independence Day…Start up the grill!
    Sept. 3….Labor Day…end of summer for kids and teachers.(relief for parents)”

    ——————

    May 8 was ‘No Socks Day’…

    that’s kind of like your labor day to us

    May 9 was ‘Lost Socks Day’…

    that’s kind of like your memorial day to us

    I am looking forward to ‘Wiggle Your Toes’ day on August 6 next…

    that’s kind of like your valentine’s day

  3. Mr.Vito says:

    Of course, the most dreaded holiday is Christmas… when the barbaric Christians engorge us with goodies and hang us to roast over the fireplace.

  4. Bitterlaw says:

    Here’s a scam that the teachers pull in my sister-in-law’s district. They start school with three 1/2 days starting the Wednesday before Labor Day. They get to count 3 days towards the magic number of 180 AND a 3 day week-end to ease the pain of having to go back to work. because they start early, they are out the first week of June. My town starts the Tuesday after Labor Day and will finish next Thursday

  5. Brandon says:

    Today was the last day for us. We started with a 1/2 day on September 1st this year.

  6. DrJay says:

    We were done the first week of May… Brandon’s idle hands can now join mine in the Devil’s workshop.

  7. Bitterlaw says:

    Brandon – teachers are evil geniuses.

  8. Bitterlaw says:

    DrJay – You teach at a university, right?

  9. DrJay says:

    yes, sir… no paychecks in the summer.

  10. Brandon says:

    No idle time for me. Gotta find a new job. They are cutting a position in the department and last one in = first one out…

  11. The Real SusyQue says:

    Did Bill Clinton Deliver a Coded Warning about Obama?

    Very powerful Clintonian forces are crystallizing once more, and Mr. Obama is going to pay the price.
    Therefore, even absent any other reason, it is reasonable to believe that Mr. Obama is ideologically dangerous for the same basic reason why he will lose in 2012, which is that Mr. Clinton is telegraphing that Mr. Obama is dangerous, and that he (Mr. Clinton) is therefore willing to negotiate with Republicans.

  12. Bitterlaw says:

    This will be a difficult 24 hours for me. Tonight. from 11:15 pm to 4:00 a.m. I am a chaperone for the Post Senior Prom party. At 1:00 p.m. on Saturday, I coach my last softball game. I have to find time to write a few words for all 13 players for when I present them with a game ball and thank them for the season.

  13. DrJay says:

    #10 (not for me anyway… my faculty status is renewed on 9-month appts.)

  14. The Real SusyQue says:

    Dr. Jay…what do you think about #12 post info.

  15. DrJay says:

    #11 That sucks Brandon.

  16. Bitterlaw says:

    Brandon – good luck. You need to either get to Ridgewood, New Jersey or Radnor, PA or Lower Merion, PA. On the other hand, the teachers in Neshaminy, PA went on strike this week and holding the graduating class hostage. The yhave the highest combined salary and benefits in PA and are in the middle of school performance.

  17. lisab says:

    bill clinton would love for obama to lose

    a.) it leaves him as the senior democratic statesman. obama has basically sidelined him and if obama is a two-termer obamacare will likely be instituted … via scotus mandate after obama replaces several scotus judges … obama will forever be the democratic statesman …

    but if obama loses, he will be disgraced

    b.) it paves the way for hillary

  18. Bitterlaw says:

    Brandon – your position is a harsh reality in the union world. Honestly, there has to be one lifer in the math department who retired 10 years ago but still shows up and costs through teaching (maybe a little harder in math than English but probably doable). You actually are young enough to care about teaching and you are on the street.

  19. lisab says:

    brandon,

    claim you are cherokee

    or

    gay

    that should save you

  20. Brandon says:

    Trying to avoid relocating. I’m not that upset though, it wasn’t a great place to work anyway.

  21. DrJay says:

    #12 In honesty, I am a little wary of american thinker. They seem to garner a little too much from the leaves at times.

    There was a person named americanthinkerfan who stole a lot of our handles… also soured me a bit, though probably not the site’s fault

    That being said, Clinton has definitely hurt Obama’s narrative on at least a couple of occasions recently. Bill was never a dummy… maybe he is becoming senile in hie old age, or maybe he realy is a little pi$$ed at what Obama has done to the party.

  22. DrJay says:

    *the tea leaves

  23. DW says:

    I recall once when I held an administrative position at a college, that one of the newer professors popped into the office, all giddy, because he was about to leave for the summer and vacation all the way to late August. After bragging about all the travel he had planned, he unknowingly looked at us and asked “So where are you all going to go this summer?”

    Of course the deadpan response…right here behind this desk…we have to WORK all summer unlike you.

  24. Bitterlaw says:

    I just found this on the Neshaminy teachers.

    http://www.philly.com/philly/news/breaking/157242676.html

    If you’re going to strike, at least have the integrity to picket full time. Cutting back on your picketing? That’s just lazy.

    Epic LSU baseball today in the Super Regional

    They homer in the bottom of the ninth to tie it up then after falling behind in the top of the 10th homer AGAIN in the bottom of the tenth to tie it up again

    I guess I picked a bad week to stop sniffing glue…

    A University of Georgia professor of German was arrested Thursday evening by Gwinnett County police after dressing up as a woman and agreeing to have sex with an undercover officer, according to Gwinnett County police Cpl. Jake Smith.

  28. DrJay says:

    Is it the dressing up as a woman, or the sodomy, or the sex that is illegal in Georgia?

  29. The Real SusyQue says:

    #24…DW…Don’t forget to tell us about how much more you made in salary and the days off you got to go to seminars plus many more perks.

  30. Bitterlaw says:

    We should defer to our Georgia expert. Tim?

  31. The Real SusyQue says:

    #29…probably the dressing up as a woman. The other two can be hidden.

  32. Brandon says:

    Uh, you can dress however you would like. Being a crossdresser isn’t illegal, even though I’m sure you’d like it to be Susy.

  33. lisab says:

    the New York Daily News just found out that president obama is black. boy, are they pissed

    ————————————–

    There will be so many things to talk about with Obama vs. Romney from here to November, but the one that nobody will want to talk about very much in polite society, even in what has a chance to be the meanest presidential campaign for all times, is race.

    It works against the President this time, in a big way.

    Last time, there were just weren’t enough reasons for enough white voters to vote against the black guy, as much as they wanted to. This time there are plenty.

    And please don’t believe a single poll on this issue.

    If there is one great truth about polling in this country, at least when it comes to race, is that people lie through their teeth. Mostly because they don’t want to look like some lousy, scummy bigot — even talking to an anonymous voice on the telephone.

    -I thought Bubba Clinton just said this?

    She meant “Media Income”.

  36. addisonst says:

    Mfg, you think the former nfl players have a case?

  37. The Real SusyQue says:

    #34…Lisab….there is not one country in this whole world that doesn’t have some prejudice against another group for whatever reason. It began when Adam and Eve were kicked out of the perfect Garden of Eden.

    The race issue or whatever you want to call it will never go away.
    It begins in a person’s heart. It is very individual. A person can change, if they want to when they realize how unreasonable it is to judge by color or ethnicity.

  38. lisab says:

    eve was framed

  39. Bitterlaw says:

    I am not prejudiced. I hate all people.

  40. MFG says:

    Down again in the 11th 4-3

    *sigh*

    Is a third comeback possible?

  41. Mr.Vito says:

    The snake was actually a sock… my evil twin Sir Carmine Vito.

  42. The Serpent says:

    Eve wanted it. She wore me down.

  43. MFG says:

    Add, if there is evidence that the NFL knew or SHOULD have known about the effects of these concussions, sure, I think the players have a case, but I’m not a lawyer

  44. The Serpent says:

    MFG – if the Phillies bullpen was at the game, 4-3 would turn to 7-4 with one swing.

  45. MFG says:

    My guess is they settle

    I hope they settle, this litigation has the possibility of really seriously damaging the NFL

  46. Mr.Vito says:

    I always knew the Phillies were in league with the Prince of Darkness.

  47. MFG says:

    To the bottom of the 11th

    One more rally left?

    Thank God these things are double elimination…

  48. DrJay says:

    Make it a two-run homer this time, mfg.

  49. MFG says:

    Homer!

    Fuuck!!

    We tied it again!!

  50. addisonst says:

    I think the niffle did what they’re accused of but proving it is going to be incredibly difficult

  51. DrJay says:

    geez, can’t somebody leg out a bunt single first?

  52. DrJay says:

    The coach should tell everyone to pretend they’re down one in the 12th.

  53. MFG says:

    I hope they settle, Tagliabue & Goodell looked the other way for years

    I was reading about some of these initial findings 5+ years ago

    I could easily see litigation killing high school and college football at a minimum…

  54. AuthorLMendez says:

    Dave W, check this article out, it shows what a bunch of BS PPP is spewing for their boy Barrack:

    http://gop12.thehill.com/2012/06/ppp-battleground-polls-skewed-in-favor.html

  55. Bitterlaw says:

    MFG – The players MAY have a case. However, they have to prove:

    Duty – Did the NFL have to diclose info?

    Breach – Did it not disclose the info if it had a duty?

    Causation – Did failure to disclose cause an injury?

    Injury – Was there an injury?

    Quick verdict from Judge Bitterlaw:

    No duty. No requirement to disclose. The players would have to prove they would not have played if they knew the risk of concussions (nobody believes that since they already played knowing concussions are not good). Injury – maybe for a very few.

    Real world outcome:

    Millions in legal fees. No money to players. Free medical care for NFL players for “monitoring” by neurologists (also making millions).

  56. MFG says:

    Winning run on base ( I know none of you give a shiit but typing this stuff out makes me less nervous somehow)

  57. DrJay says:

    I care… sort of.

  58. MFG says:

    Years ago they could have forestalled this by taking care of these older players from the 50;s and 60′s with medical care, higher pension etc

    NFL too greedy

  59. MFG says:

    Winning run at 2nd two out

    Come on, one lousy hit…

  60. MFG says:

    Grrrr

    On to the 12th…

  61. Bitterlaw says:

    For a reasonable fee, I will shred the argument I just made.

  62. DrJay says:

    “Southeastern Conference commissioner Mike Slive and the SEC held an official welcoming party for Missouri and Texas A&M, only three months before the Tigers and Aggies open their first football schedules as members of the conference.”

    Yay… maybe people here will stop looking at my Missouri hat and asking me if I like Michigan or exclaiming ‘Go Blue’.

  63. MFG says:

    (*&*((*&)()&(&*!!

    Rain delay…

  64. MFG says:

    Dr JAy

    Is MO going into the SEC East?

  65. MFG says:

    I think you would have a duty to disclose because these are alleged to be hidden injuries manifesting years later

    Every player of course knows he risks sprains, fractures, even paralysis

    But plaques on your brain causing early dementia?

    And the NFL knows but doesnt disclose…?!

  66. DrJay says:

    yes, the east

  67. Bitterlaw says:

    NFL too greedy

    Comment by MFG

    Have you been listening to the Vulture Capitalism crowd again? Are you starting the Occupy the 50 Yard Line movement?*

    *Cream soda.

  68. addisonst says:

    Mizzou defenders are going to see more checkerboards than a geezer at the park.

  69. MFG says:

    Pity A&M going to the SEC West

  70. addisonst says:

    Same for aggie defenders.

  71. DrJay says:

    Orlando Woolridge has died at 52 from a chronic heart condition.

  72. addisonst says:

    Yeah I feel terrible for a and m.

  73. Tim V says:

    I coach my last softball game. I have to find time to write a few words for all 13 players for when I present them with a game ball and thank them for the season.

    Oh, that is soo sweet. See SSQ, his Dr. Hyde persona is one of kindness, it’s that dang Mr. Jeykl, the a-hole that is such a pain in the a##.

  74. DrJay says:

    trivia… Woolridge was the last person to lead the Bulls in scoring pre-Jordan.

  75. Bitterlaw says:

    MFG – Which side are you paying me to argue? I can argue both:

    A. Why do we have a duty to tell an adult who has a concussion that it is bad to have concussions? If a player eats steak and cheeseburgers at our team dining facility and on road trips, are you going to sue us when he has a heart attack cause his crappy diet killed him?

    B. The reason that the NFL knew of the risk of concussions was because it wanted to determine the risk..Once it knew the risk, it should have disclosed it.

    Personally, I think the players’ weakest case in on causation and damages.

  76. sickofdems says:

    Watch it Dr.Jay….

    Big time go blue fan here.

    Don’t make me come find you….

  77. DrJay says:

    Bitterlaw… is there any precedent with the tobacco companies?

  78. DrJay says:

    #79 I don’t have a problem with the Blue… I just find it awkward to see big smiles on Michigan fans faces and then have to let them down.

  79. DrJay says:

    My father is a huge Big-Ten fan.

  80. addisonst says:

    Sick I see where Michigan has shrewdly kept app state off the schedule and stuck to team at their own level like notre dame. Hey Mfg and Bitter see what I did? Too out two heinous schools w one shot.

  81. MFG says:

    I dunno

    Yes, concussions are bad but the general medical consensus before 5-10 years ago was that players recovered and that was that

    But now the NFL knows or did know or SHOULD have known these injuries cause MUCH WORSE problems then previously thought

    How could there NOT be a duty to disclose?

    Of course I am approaching this from the fiduciary standard of an investment advisor which is certainly not applicable to this situation

  82. Marv says:

    MFG

    Now that Texas A&M is in the SEC West, LSU will finally have to have play a good team every year.

  83. MFG says:

    Sick

    You had two chances to take Les Miles off our hands, thanks for nothing…

  84. MFG says:

    You better start recruiting Marv

    LSU, Alabama, Arkansas et al are waiting with brass knuckles

  85. lisab says:

    on one side

    super-rich owners

    the other side

    once handsome popular athletes

    i think the athletes will win. too risky to go to a jury.

  86. sickofdems says:

    I actually wanted Les Miles here MFG. I think he is a great coach and recruiter.
    I also liked Rich Rodriguez and thought he got a raw deal here.

  87. MFG says:

    If they start lawsuits like this against colleges and high schools the beginning of the end for football could be at hand

    If assessed any liability high schools will drop the sport, then colleges, then where will the NFL future pros come from…???

    Is this a tobacco type lawsuit situation…?!

  88. DrJay says:

    Aggies schedule:

    Thu, Aug 30 Louisiana Tech
    Sat, Sep 08 FLORIDA *

    Sat, Nov 03 Mississippi State *
    Sat, Nov 10 Alabama *
    Sat, Nov 17 SAM HOUSTON STATE
    Sat, Nov 24 MISSOURI *

  89. sickofdems says:

    From what i have learned though….Les was caught banging a few of the coaches wives when he was here before and that stopped him from being the head coach at Michigan.

  90. MFG says:

    I wanted Miles to go both times

    He is a fantastic recruiter and a motivator but a game day dumbfuuck and of course everyone knows he is a wild man on fourth down which sometimes works and sometimes…

  91. sickofdems says:

    MICHIGAN = winningest college football team of ALL TIME.

    Got that Add?

    And yes….we are afraid of App. State.

  92. MFG says:

    That looks like 6-6 Dr Jay

    Alabama LSU Arkansas are certain defeats, probably Auburn too I’m not sure how good Florida will be this year

  93. DrJay says:

    Mizzou schedule:

    09/01/12 vs. Southeastern Louisiana
    09/08/12 vs. Georgia *

  94. sickofdems says:

    MFG…all coaches make decisions that in hind-sight they should not have.

    Every single one of them.

    He is a good coach and you are lucky to have him.

  95. MFG says:

    I’ll give Miles one thing he WILLED that 2008 team to a national championship, going 5 for 5 on fourth down against Florida, I know of no other coach who would have been so determined, so implacable

    That was a poised team too, nothing ever upset them…

  96. MFG says:

    I still wish he’d leave though…

  97. addisonst says:

    Miles is a terrible coach. I wouldn’t even trade mack daddy for him

  98. MFG says:

    Mizzou schedule looks much better, you guys may be able to do something, SEC East still significantly weaker than the West

  99. MFG says:

    Looks like they’ll finish this game tomorrow

    See you guys…

  100. DrJay says:

    I looked at Florida’s schedule last year and said they would have a bad year… they should be better this year with pretty much everyone returning… but how good I don’t know. They need to figure out how to score.

    I would not want to have A&M’s schedule.

  101. addisonst says:

    A gorgeous day out on the lake w cold beer. How can I possibly be expected to handle school on a day like this?

  102. addisonst says:

    A and m had to get away from their abusive daddy. they ran away into the witless protection program. We don’t miss them.

  103. DrJay says:

    Chris Christie: Obama remarks an ‘outrage’

    “He’s the one who put forward an ineffective, wasteful stimulus plan that did nothing to help this economy,” Christie said. “… He’s the one who saddled us with all these federal rules and regulations that don’t allow governors to have the freedom to do what we really want, and then he has the audacity to stand up this morning and say that it’s the nation’s governors and the nation’s mayors who are driving our economy down by not hiring enough people for government work.”

  109. The Real SusyQue says:

    Why Do We Elect People Who So Clearly Lack Character?

    By now, nearly everyone paying attention knows that Barack Obama has lied countless times over the years in order to further his academic and political career. He is, in fact, a “composite.” And what we do know is just a hint of what there is yet to know, given that all his academic records are sealed.

    Of course soft porn could have meant someone said tit for tat or remarked they saw a horny owl.

  111. Garp says:

    It appears to me the resistance is most likely to occur at 12,700 although 12,600 is also possible. We are looking to take a downside position (short or put) in the next several days.

  112. jason says:

    Be careful Garp. The Ficus’ banker friends told him the private sector is booming and the stock market can only go up.

  113. The Real SusyQue says:

    Bill Clinton has to do something to stop obama from getting one more term. Clinton is aware of the dismantling of the Democrat party as he knew it. If he allows ooo one more term…he will destroy not only the DEM Party, but our Republic as we know it.
    The question is…what will Clinton have to do?

    MFG,

    Sounds like your baseball game is one for the ages.

  115. Walt says:

    Wife school year was over last Friday and now she is home to crack the whip on me to get things done.

    Vaccum, dust, run erands for her here and there, fix this, fix that, “you are smoking too many of those cigars”…

    And I got my own projects related to pouring over voters lists and doing things regarding my reelection campaign.

    But she is baking cookies for me. :)

  116. O.'s stash IN the sock drawer says:

    Wow, what a week.

    I am Obama’s stash IN the sock drawer.

    First he dips into the stash and gets all goofy headed before that appearance where he claims Michelle “won’t go all the way down”. But one time they left the drawer open a crack and I saw that she DOES!

    You can’t believe what all he does once he dips into me. Why just last week he “partook” got all “hepped up” and called the NYT to leak the info about the drones. I tried to tell him to put down the phone. But he does not listen to me or ANYBODY!!!

    Now it seems he is planning to lay the leak all on dumb Joe B., get him to admit to it and resign as VP so “Mr. Big Shot” can then put Hillary on the ticket.

    Things are really unraveling….

  117. O.'s stash IN the sock drawer says:

    Went to a candidate forum at noon today. I hit a home run (did really well).

    None of our D opponents were there. Big Dem conflab downstate today.

    They will get a chance to speak to the business group next month.

  118. Walt says:

    Oops, forgot to change handle.

    Now I cannot post to pretend that Mr. Vito has a connection at the White House.

    My neighbor has a bigger trap and adds peanut butter to his bait of sliced apple, but I am two ahead of him this week by just using a (sorry SSQ) naked apple slice.

    I also took joy to see a rabbit squished in the road in front of my house.

    Video of Rand Paul’s endorsement.

    He actually gave a fairly strong endorsement of Romney. I’m still skeptical based on Romney’s 2008 debate performances, but I bet some Paul supporters will go Romney’s way after that.

    I think the thing that could really push them back the other way is if Ron Paul ends up endorsing Gary Johnson for a third party bid, which is very possible as well.

    Wisconsin-sized polling error could mask Romney sweep of battleground states

    “Mitt Romney would collect at least 72 of the 110 electoral votes available in eight battleground states if President Barack Obama’s current polling numbers, as reported by The Huffington Post, are overstated by a mere one percent…

    and if undecided voters there split evenly between Romney and Obama…

    But if the undecided voters break for Romney by two-thirds, Romney would win all those states’ 110 votes, pushing him well above the 270 margin…

    “It’s a good reminder that small shifts in votes can play a big role in electoral votes,” Trey Grayson, director of Harvard’s Institute of Politics, told The Daily Caller.”

    Boy, what a bad week for Obama. I’m expecting one of the following next week:

    1) An four-page, in-depth, investigative article in the NYT or the WaPo about Seamus Romney, and his “mysterious” death. “The Romneys, despite their considerable wealth, declined an autopsy, according to sources close to the likely exorbitantly expensive vet.”

    2) The Palooka County, Idaho Dogcatcher (a Republican) will say something racist, spurring a national news story about Obama’s “headwinds”

  144. Emerica says:

This scheme makes little sense since even if Mr. Obama won, she could run in 2016, and from a better position not trying to unseat an incumbent.

    Republicans nationwide are dutifully rubbing his face in his mess this afternoon, first and foremost among them the man of the hour in Wisconsin, but here’s my favorite reaction. Remember how Team O made McCain choke in 2008 when he said the “fundamentals” of the economy were strong? Well, it’s payback time:

    [F]ormer McCain aides, now, are relishing the moment.

    “McCain was trying to calm people at a moment of real crisis — i think his intentions were good,” one former top aide said in an email. “Obama’s just trying to build support for raising taxes and make the case for his own stewardship.”

    Another former McCain aide was blunter.

    “We very much look forward watching Team Romney put Obama’s head in a vice over this,” he emailed “What goes around comes around, a*sholes.”

    Where was this attitude during the 2008 election?

    WV has so many regions it is hard to think of a WV food.

    In the Fairmont/Clarksburg area they have pepperoni rolls that are good. Story is that the miners wives would pack these in their husbands lunch pails when they went into the mines. They kept well and did not have to be refrigerated.

    Northern Panhandle has a lot of Italian flavor in their foods.

    Richwood, WV has a ramp festival and lots of WV folks really enjoy their srping ramps. I do not like onions or ramps. They cook them up with eggs or with potatoes.

    Ky. man charged with rape, sodomy of (mentally) disabled woman

    LIBERTY, Ky. – A central Kentucky man has been charged with 10 counts of first degree rape and 20 counts of first degree sodomy of someone incapable of consent.

    Kentucky State Police say 62-year-old Michael E. Burt of Liberty had sex with an intellectually disabled woman at a group home between June 2011 and May 2012.

    Galilean Children’s Home founder and director Jerry Tucker told The Advocate-Messenger the woman involved is now in her 30s, but has an intellectual capacity similar to that of a 7-year-old.

    Tucker said Burt worked at the home for 22 years until he was fired last month for making inappropriate comments to residents.

    Burt is being held at the Casey County Detention Center on a $100,000 cash bond. Jail records did not list an attorney for Burt.

    Scientists to Hold Bake Sale for NASA Saturday

    Scientists are trading telescopes for aprons this week to sell Milky Way cupcakes, Saturn cake, and chocolate chip Opportunity cookies in an effort to salvage U.S. planetary science projects.

    The 2013 budget proposal submitted by the Obama administration earlier this year would cut funding for NASA’s planetary science projects by about $300 million. While Congress is still deliberating over the federal budget, groups of scientists are planning a series of demonstrations — in the form of bake sales, car washes and other events — for Saturday (June 9) to plead their case.

    “It is indeed time for a serious national debate on the economy. Economic fundamentals can make or break a society. Economic growth is a matter of life or death. Millions of Americans are suffering.

    Unfortunately, the two political parties do not offer very different approaches. The rhetoric varies, but even here the differences are overblown. Both sides preach “‘energy independence”’—which is doublespeak for energy isolationism. Both sides want health care guaranteed to patients with preexisting conditions, so long as customers are forced to buy private insurance.

    Despite conventional wisdom, both sides even favor approximately the same fiscal policy. All that drama in last year’s ridiculous budget debate was over about 2 percent of the deficit. Whoever won or lost made no difference to America’s economic health five years down the line.

    And consider monetary affairs. After the boom, bust, bailouts, and expansion of the Federal Reserve’s powers, the long-neglected mystery of monetary policy finally became a national issue. But both sides of the political elite favor the same approach to this crucial question, evidenced by Barack Obama’s reappointment of George W. Bush’s Fed chief, Ben Bernanke.

    While Republicans emphasize tax cuts for some groups and increased defense spending, and Democrats stress tax cuts on other groups and increased social spending, both sides agree with the main premises of Keynesianism. The blogosphere erupted over Romney’s concession to a core principle of progressive economics:

    If you take a trillion dollars for instance, out of the first year of the federal budget that would shrink GDP more than 5 percent. That is by definition throwing us into recession or depression. So I’m not going to do that, of course. What you do is you make adjustments on a basis that show, in the first year, actions that over time get you to a balanced budget.

    Even those who agree with this must acknowledge that Americans will be deprived of anything approaching a deep discussion over economics in Romney’s exchanges with Obama. Lincoln-Douglas debates they will not be. Anyone who thinks something is radically wrong with the status quo has nowhere to turn.”

    I have remained what others would consider underground. I did this in order to build a community of people, like-minded in their desire for freedom and the right to pursue their goals and lives without being manipulated and controlled by a media protected military industrial complex with a completely different agenda. Having put the lives and needs of other people before my own for multiple years, and having made hundreds of millions of dollars for certain institutions, under complex and sometimes severe circumstances, I began to require growth and more equitable treatment, but was met with resistance. I entered into my craft full of optimism (which I still possess), but immediately saw the suppressive force with which the system attempts to maintain it’s control over a given paradigm….

    I conveyed all of this when questioned as to why I did not file taxes during this time period. Obviously, the danger I faced was not accepted as reasonable grounds for deferring my tax payments, as authorities, who despite being told all of this, still chose to pursue action against me, as opposed to finding an alternative solution.

    My intention has always been to get this situation rectified. When I was working consistently without being affected by the interferences mentioned above, I filed and paid my taxes. This only stopped when it was necessary to withdraw from society, in order to guarantee the safety and well-being of myself and my family.

    Ras today: Romney 46/ Obama 45

  233. dblaikie says:

    I have a lot of respect for Scott Rasmussen. His polls are solid and within the margin of error. However I do wish now that we are in the campaign that he would drop the favorable and unfavorable number for Obama. The reason why is that Obama’s re-elect number is his approval number. Today that number is 45 — those are the folks who approve enough of Obama that they are willing to actually punch the card for him. All the rest are folks who aren’t willing to vote for him.

    And everyone on this site knows that as far as Obama is concerned there is no real undecided. Everyone made up their mind about the President long ago — unless you live on Mars.

    So today Obama’s real approval number is 45 and those who disappove is 55.

  234. EML says:

    WEC has the same problem as Paulbots – they don’t understand that we have a SYSTEM of government. One person all by themselves ain’t gonna get it done. If Paul is elected, he won’t get rid of the Fed, he won’t put us back on the gold standard, and he won’t withdraw our support for Israel. Congress won’t go along with any of it.

    The point with Mitt is that the Tea Party Congress will control the agenda and Mitt will sign off on the Ryan budget, remove Obamacare, and appoint conservative justices. The really would be very little difference between Romney, Santorum, or Gingrich presidencies because all three will have to work with the House and the Senate.

    I wonder…did WEC support Romney as the conservative alternative to McCain in 2008?

Changes to CPVI:

    KS-01: R+23 to R+22

    WEC, you used to have the most cogent argument against Obamacare and your rants against individual mandate will be confirmed by the SC. However, you are beginning to get a bit irritating in your rants against Romney. I agree he is not the classical conservative/libertarain and there is a streak of governmental interventionalism in him. However, he is streets ahead of Obama and this country cannot handle four more years.

  278. Tim V says:

    Susy, as someone that has the gift of prophecy, you KNOW that dw has incorrectly intepreted scripture and furthermore you have probably foreseen that both BITTER and Jason(the bully/truce be hanged) will indeed be sharing a condo in hell, wheras you and i susy, we both KNOW where we will be.

  279. Diogenes says:

    Romney is a businessman. He gets things done. The individual mandate properly applied and done at the state level can definitely help rein in costs. France for all its woes actually has a very similar system in place and they have among the best health outcomes in the world. Mandate catastrophic insurance and allow people to buy additional coverage on top of that and you get rid of emergency-room free riders while also allowing the marketplace to function.

    Sadly, we probably can never implement such a system successfully in the US. There are simply too many ignorant Democrats and pandering politicians who would use government power to make a mandate to fund a bloated bureacracy and cram single-payer nonsense down our throats.

  280. Diogenes says:

    This was the idea that Romney tried to implement and which failed because the Dems are full of incompetent imbeciles. There is a lot wrong with Obamacare. A federal mandate is just one of them but it is the single focal point of conservative attacks.

    I bet good money, were it 1994, most conservatives would’ve supported a mandate. It was a plank in the alternative healthcare bill the GOP Congress pushed and which helped end Hilarycare.

They had an influence on me even until this day, but they never knew how they influenced me to dress well and to write well. Not one of us is perfect. We can find pluses and minuses in everyone.

  306. janz says:

    There are so many salient articles relating to President Obama’s comment on Friday, about the private sector.

    Here’s another, Victor Davis Hanson’s superior article about Professor Obama’s take on the economy.

    How odd is his diagnosis when Democrats themselves not long ago attacked George W. Bush’s “jobless recovery” of 5.4 percent unemployment and George H. W. Bush “it’s the economy stupid” of 3.4 percent GDP growth. Yet Obama’s problem was not just the absurdity of defining economic distress as too little borrowed federal money for insolvent states and municipalities, but his timing right after blue-state Wisconsin repudiated just that philosophy.
    So we are in an interesting paradox: All empirical evidence points to the worldwide failure of the blue-state model (e.g., California, the southern Mediterranean, anti-Walker Wisconsin), and yet Barack Obama’s entire career, from community organizing, to the state legislature, to the Senate, was predicated on just such a protocol of public borrowing to provide expansive government entitlements and jobs in exchange for a loyal political constituency, with the debt, in redistributive fashion, to be serviced by wringing more revenue from the suspect private sector that is always doing “fine.”

    Hope the President stands firm. If necessary, (5+ / 0-)

    let 1/1/13 come and go with no extension. Then the new Congress can debate whether to reinstate the cuts for the “middle class.” Hopefully that will be less than the current $250K threshold. Have that debate in January and February, it doesn’t need to happen before them. And the President will always have a veto.

    We don’t like Obama, Bitterlaw. It’s just for different reasons. And, I’d wager that there’s many out there like me who either won’t vote for him, or just don’t want to.

    My vote goes to Hillary Clinton.

Abortion will always be legal (would need to flip 2 justices just to send it back to the states). Romneycare? I don’t like it but the people in Mass did. Either you like state’s rights or you don’t.

  389. jason says:

    ” Do you think Mitt Romney is a genuine Conservative?”

    Yes. Mitt is a real conservative. Always was.

    Not by WEC’s standards, but Mitt is for a strong defense, free enterprise, free trade. He believes in the capitalist system and is pro-business. He supports Israel. He opposes amnesty for illegals. He favor energy independence through domestic production.

    I could go on, but that’s conservative enough for me.

    What a load of garbage.

    The economy is stifled by over regulation and Obama’s anti-business practices and rhetoric. Business large and small have no incentive to grow or produce, and that is by design.

    Obama has done everything possible to expand the public sector at the expense of the private sector.

    Obamacare IS a government takeover of healthcare, the Democrats are not done yet, this is just the first step in their own words.

    Cap and Trade and global warming are just excuses to tax and regulate businesses liberals don’t favor out of existence.

    He doesn’t mind rich union fatcats or celebrities as long as they are liberals. I have yet to hear him complain about the Hollywood rich. People that made their money in business or investments, they are the enemy.

    Now, please stand down. I want Michael to show me how clueless I am.

  431. Tim says:

    I don’t subscribe to that “nanny state” nonsense, jason. Quit with the silly talking points.

  432. Tim says:

    I don’t think for myself, jason?

    Now, since you don’t even know me, how did you arrive at a conclusion that would be impossible for you to arrive at?

  433. jason says:

    ” There is some socialism in this country too, you know.”

    LOL, you think?

    No kidding. But not enough for you. You want the government to wipe your butt, tell you what to eat and drink and provide you with everything.

    There is never going to be enough government for you, right Tim? You will always think of something else the government can give you by taxing someone “rich”.

  434. Tim says:

    Where’d you go, Michael? I thought I was the one who was hit and run.

  435. Bitterlaw says:

    Tim is not stupid. He is jealous. He thinks only union members are working people.

  436. Tim says:

    #440:
    Nope. I don’t believe that. I’m not for Big Government. Again, that is just talking points.

    Have you anything concrete?

  437. jason says:

    ” I don’t think for myself, jason?”

    Doesn’t take much of a detective.

    Your sophomoric attacks on the “rich” are taken straight out of the moonbat sites, where class warfare is always the theme of the day.

    And your whining about the nanny state not being big enough is what MSNBC and most of the MSM talk about non-stop.

    Face it Tim, you are a moron.

  438. jason says:

    Have you read the articles I posted about Sweden? Maybe you can learn something more original and informative than what you read at DKos.

  439. Tim says:

    #442:
    See #427. I don’t think that, at all. Lots of working people are not union members. Most are not.

  440. sir Albert says:

    Huh?

  441. jason says:

    ” Now jason, I can produce about 20 times that many links that say just the opposite”

    No you can’t. The fact that Sweden is moving away from socialism and towards a more market oriented economy is fact.

    They have cut social spending in a big way. They have deregulated the airlines, telecommunications, utilities. They have moved to universal school vouchers, eliminated gift and inheritance taxes. Sold state owned enterprises. Partially privatized their pension system. Lowered taxes.

    These are facts.

  442. jason says:

    “Since taking office in 2006, the center-right administration of Prime Minister Fredrik Reinfeldt has reduced income and corporate taxes, repealed a longstanding wealth tax, tightened unemployment and sick-leave benefits (which are still exceedingly generous), and privatized various state assets. On September 19, Reinfeldt became the first conservative premier in modern Swedish history to win reelection, though his government apparently fell just short of securing a parliamentary majority. The once-mighty Social Democratic party captured less than 31 percent of the vote, its worst performance in nearly a century. Meanwhile, the far-right Sweden Democrats (SD) — a populist-nationalist party critical of Muslim immigration — finally gained entrance into the Riksdag, picking up a remarkable 20 seats (out of 349) and virtually doubling its vote share from 2006.”

    he World Economic Forum now ranks Sweden as the second-most competitive economy on earth, behind only Switzerland. According to the 2010 Index of Economic Freedom (compiled by the Wall Street Journal and the Heritage Foundation), Sweden offers greater business freedom, trade freedom, monetary freedom, investment freedom, financial freedom, freedom from corruption, and property-rights protection than does the United States.

  443. sir Albert says:

    I have a new thing. It’s simple. I’d like you to join me. It’s basically this: whenever you read a ridiculous coulumn byu a lib, and at the end of the article it leaves their e-mail address, simply respond with “Huh?”

    It’s easy.

  444. jason says:

    So go ahead and send me articles saying that no, Sweden is heading further into the nanny state direction and are not implementing free market reforms.

    Waiting for the 20 articles that say that.

    Did Bill Clinton Deliver a Coded Warning about Obama?

    Reasonable people will agree that Mr. Obama came out of nowhere and ascended to power. Mrs. Clinton was swept aside by a perfect storm whose elements included Bush fatigue and the release, by MSM forces, of a hitherto mostly latent cultural psychosis.
    Once Mr. Obama thusly achieved power, he exercised it impetuously and impudently, thereby jeopardizing the future of his party. Very powerful Clintonian forces are crystallizing once more, and Mr. Obama is going to pay the price.
    Therefore, even absent any other reason, it is reasonable to believe that Mr. Obama is ideologically dangerous for the same basic reason why he will lose in 2012, which is that Mr. Clinton is telegraphing that Mr. Obama is dangerous, and that he (Mr. Clinton) is therefore willing to negotiate with Republicans.
