If He’s Lost the New Yorker…
Power Line, by John Hinderaker

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 10/6/2012 6:13:02 AM

…then it is hard to imagine who still believes the myth of Barack Obama. Next week’s New Yorker cover:(Snip for graphic)So I guess it’s unanimous. Clint Eastwood was right. But here is what I don’t understand: why isn’t everyone embarrassed to be a liberal? Or, put another way, a Democrat? How is it that some people can witness the latest liberal fiasco–Romney sneaked a crib sheet into the debate! That’s the only way he could remember all those facts! No one could actually know all that stuff!–and say, hey, I don’t mind associating with those people!

Comments:
The New Yorker cover is creating a brushfire in bloggerville. There's a lot of discussion.

The caricature of Romney gives him quite a chin. If you color it in, he looks like Lincoln. I think that's an accident, but subliminally it could have quite a positive effect.

I know Romney was good with his facts at the debate but was he that good? - that he needed notes? Maybe you're right, Liberals and I hope you are!

President Romney combined his law school education with his MBA, and added in his real world experience,
(which we used to expect from our presidential candidates) and smoked barack.
I have to wonder if barack even went to class in law school.
And I have to wonder if barack was chewing khat.

Clint's chair has legs. Obama fit the narrative perfectly at the debate. Maybe now some of the Dims have finally gotten Clint's point.

FTA:" But here is what I don’t understand: why isn’t everyone embarrassed to be a liberal? Or, put another way, a Democrat?" IMHO, two reasons; one, they want to be thought of as reasonable, thoughtful, and caring. Two, if they were to finally admit it would be devastating to realize that one was so wrong for so long.

I have a gut suspicion. I'm wondering if the Obama handlers plan to stage a phony 'hero thing' for the president, who will bravely be rescued from 'whatever.'
.... My 'gut' is rarely wrong.

This cover was a surprise. All evidence that the left is angry with a loser, one of them. Axelrod has so much cleaning and pruning to do that I wonder how he gets any sleep at night.

I am sure poor Obama is getting advice (make that "direction") on how to behave on the next round. Too much prodding Axelrod, and you are going to make him petulent.

The world is watching.

The libbies are desperate. The American People are wise to the Chicago mob, i.e. obama and jarret.

The cover doesn't mean a thing to WE the People. It may give solace to the demorats who are whinnnning these days....

The economy will do obama in -- no matter how he cooks the books.... It's tough out here and WE KNOW it....

This is The New Yorker's clever way of warning Obama that he has to do a better job in the next two debates or he is finished.
Remember, too, that those who write for and edit The New Yorker are some of the smartest wordsmiths on the planet. They knew an empty chair when they saw one.

#2, the answer is yes to the fact that he was that good. As far as ''taking notes'', I noticed he scribbled a few notes when Obama started meandering off topic.

I needed a new wallpaper for my computer and now I have it.

Obama has been busy convincing his base of lo-info voters that CEOs are overpaid leeches who provide no value, and get by on insider conections.

Oops... one of those drones just mopped the floor with him, and sopped up the mess with a media talking head for good measure.

ps. Don't miss the comments in New Yorker article... most are more scathing on Obama's performance than the picture is!

The next debate is supposed to be about Foreign Policy. Jug Ears will point out that he killed Osama bin Biden and he won the Nobel Peace Prize. Every 4 years we are told that this is the most important election in American history and usually it's just hype. But if we lose this one I lose my health care in 2014. So it's plenty important to me. Along with I haven't had a pay raise in 4 years and my house is worth less each year. Speaking of debates I'm expecting Plugs to do much better than expected which will validate Clint Eastwood's observation that Ole Joe is the intellectual leader of the demoncraps.

I'll let you in on a deep, dark secret. Romney had a secret radio transmitter sewn into his Magic Mormon Underwear! That's how he really mopped up the floor with The Slug.

Like any actor zero needs someone to write his lines and is lost without a script. He also is completely dependent on the "star marker" dept - the guys who really ran the "brilliant" campaign in 2008, the publicists, the agents, the trainers, the accountants, business managers, and on and on.

With his actual work record as evidence how could anyone have expected that this man had somehow accumulated any meaningful leadership experience in life before the White House or would bother to apply himself while in the WH?

He was never anything but a reflection.

NOW is the time to stop calling all these big oppressive government promoters, the good name of liberal. They are NOT liberal.
They are authoritarian, indivdual oppressing power mad traitors to the truth.
If every good soul simply stops and rethinks
this could change in a few days. Get over your fear to call them what they ARE.
They ARE socialists, statists, collectivists
reds, commies, anti Constitutioalists, not radicals but reactionaries, fellow travelers
Marxists, dictator crazed, believers in ever
larger cureaucracies, more taxes, more jails
more bureaucratic controls, everything needs to be controlled BY THE STATE. They want to close down the internet because they can't control it. Overcome your own personal fears, and try it out in front of the mirror. Try calling them the names above, pretend like you're Ayn Rand. She called them only what they are. She came from Communist Russia, escaped, really under stood how terrifying dictator like governments are to the destruction of the individual and their natural rights. Shape up.

Looks like all the lefties are leaving Obama. Who knew Obama would be thrown under his own bus.

The lefties knew all those skewed polls were lies, and Obama's poor performance only confirmed what alot of people already knew. Obama lies all the time, and nobody likes a liar. The left know Obama is going to lose, and do not want to be dragged down with him.

The left will sacrifice Obama and abandon him before they will ever admit their style of government is wrong.

November 6 is 'Impeach Obama' day.

Good point, 31st poster, though I suppose we have to go with the common parlance, unfortunately.

As for Bams - my theory is that Clint's stunning performance put a sort of spell on him and that Romney continued this nailing of him to the wall that Clint began, to the point that he could hardly move or speak. A sort of literal metaphor.

Great ideas, #s 26 and 31. Especially like the empty chair on the lawn. Just make sure it's a chair you can do without. I fully expect the spoiled-sports to steal and or destroy. Maybe bring it in at night.

Ramirez's cartoon is even more devastating.

I hope Mitt mentions in the foreign policy debate how many military people we've lost since obit ramped things up in Afghanistan. It seems that's the only way the news will get out there. obit can brag that he got Osama, and it's still not a fact that "he" got him, but will he take responsibility for the service members who've lost their lives. He doesn't even acknowledge the loss or the sacrifice unless it helps him. And, Mitt should throw in how he, Mitt, not obama, is fighting for military absentee voting extensions in several states.

Glad to know I wasn't the only one who noticed the "Lincolnesque" nature of the caricature. As #1 noted, it was almost certainly unintentional, but those are the kinds of things that often have a strong, if subtle, impact.
As for the rest of it, I'm willing to take the entire matter at face--or in this case, cover--value: The New Yorker mocked Obama. It means he's lost them...for now.

Yes #45, the New Yorker you mention cover did show Obama dressed as a Muslim. Michelle was in an Angela Davis style get-up, and I believe was holding a machine gun.

When the New Yorker got flak for that cover, they claimed it was "satire," i.e. a joke ridiculing not the Obamas, but the Right -- for our allegedly unfounded fears about the Obama couple.

The irony was that the "satire" was actually very close to reality ... i.e., the Right was right after all.

Wonder if the New Yorker's editors have figured that out now?

Easter 2014: A celebration of hope
Fox News, by Rev. Dr. James B. Lemler    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 4/20/2014 7:32:56 AM     Post Reply
Over 2 billion people are celebrating Easter today, April 20, as the calendars of Western and Eastern churches coincide this year, and these billions of faithful people are celebrating HOPE. The Easter message begins with the hopeful news that death has been overcome by life, that hatred has been overcome by love, and that sorrow has been overcome by joy. The elements of the story involve women arriving at a garden tomb and finding it empty, but even better, meeting the risen Lord, the embodiment of life and love. Their lives are changed forever and so are the lives of many, many

Gorgeous Easter Eggs From the

Chocolatiers love a holiday, be it Christmas, Valentine’s Day, or Easter. The French version of the Easter Bunny is Easter Bells (les cloches de Pâques)—which allegedly fly to Rome for a few days before the holiday to be blessed by the Pope before returning with chocolate eggs for the kids. But you don’t have to hunt very far to find French chocolate and pastry shop windows full of Easter eggs all trying to out-cute, out-class, or simply out-design one another. Good-looking pastries and other sweets are a modestly priced pleasure in France. But like fashion designers, French patissiers and chocolatiers

Say Goodbye to Taiwan
National Interest Magazine, by John J. Mearsheimer    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 4/20/2014 6:11:05 AM     Post Reply
WHAT ARE the implications for Taiwan of China’s continued rise? Not today. Not next year. No, the real dilemma Taiwan will confront looms in the decades ahead, when China, whose continued economic growth seems likely although not a sure thing, is far more powerful than it is today. Contemporary China does not possess significant military power; its military forces are inferior, and not by a small margin, to those of the United States. Beijing would be making a huge mistake to pick a fight with the American military nowadays. China, in other words, is constrained by the present global balance

The Bundy Ranch Standoff
and Attitudes Toward the State

The immediate "crisis" portion of the standoff involving the federal Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy over his cattle grazing on federal land ended last week. Whether this will be end of Bundy´s troubles with the BLM, who have been in court with him over his refusal to pay fees to them for decades, remains to be seen, with the Bundys reporting that they´ve received registered mail from the BLM this week that they haven´t opened yet. I blogged about a lot of the factual background of the conflict here, with links to some relevant court documents. This story

Barack Obama and the politics of lies

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

Spotlighting a law that stripped

WASHINGTON — Daniel Swalm was researching his family when he came across a disturbing episode in immigration history. That discovery would lead to a move in the U.S. Senate to apologize for action the nation took more than a century ago. Swalm discovered that under an obscure 1907 law, his grandmother Elsie, born and raised in Minnesota, was stripped of her U.S. citizenship after marrying an immigrant from Sweden. Swalm had never heard of the Expatriation Act that required a U.S.-born woman who married a foreigner to "take the nationality of her husband." Swalm, who lives in Minneapolis, found out about the law

Russian Regular Forces To Invade

This “Open Letter to the Friends of Ukraine,” by a guest columnist who writes under the pen name of Irina Gokieli, dated April 19, offers the author’s pessimistic scenario of forthcoming events in what Vladimir Putin now calls “NewRussia.” “NewRussia” encompasses southeastern Ukraine and parts of Moldova. She predicts an invasion by regular Russian troops near the end of the first week of May under the pretext of restoring order, although she does not rule out, as an alternative, an alliance of Putin with certain Ukrainian politicians and oligarchs. Notably the author makes a persuasive case that the long-term consequences

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls. The bushy-tailed visitor

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

I began reading the entirety of the first section of the New York Times at nine years old, and continued that practice, more or less, for decades.(snip) ...the power of reverence, intrinsic to what I call the “cascade” of The Times: the near avalanche-like flow and distribution of information through electronic and print networks: through like-minded network newscasts, magazines, local newspaper s, blogs, daytime talk TV, late-night entertainment, statements at media award ceremonies, the celebrity Twitterverse, etc. The cascade rolls through Saturday Night Live, Jon Stewart, The New Yorker, the mouths of third-grade teachers, Elmo, Madonna and Susan Sarandon …through

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after
