Obama Campaign Lashes
Out With 'Big Bird' Attack

Breitbart's Big Government, by John Nolte

Original Article

Posted By:Dreadnought, 10/9/2012 9:11:16 AM

It's as though Barack Obama didn't diminish himself enough during his debate with Mitt Romney and decided diminishing himself was actually a good tactic. And so, in the immediate aftermath of the debate debacle, instead of showing some dignity as other presidents before him have after a loss, Team Obama started a nanny-nanny-boo-boo name-calling campaign. In ads and in interviews and presidential speeches, Romney's been called everything from a "liar," to a "flip-flopper." Obama isn't just a sore loser, he's a petulant, dishonest, crybaby, narcissist loser. Believe it or not,

The Obama Campaign lies. What Romney said was that we should not be borrowing from China to underwrite Big Bird. That's very different from the way they're spinning it.

The subtext on this one is too obvious to ignore...
With his finger rubbing his temple, Obama's been publicly giving opponents the bird since at least his 2008 campaign debates with Hillary. I think it's a passive aggressive thing with this most bizarre of characters. But now, for his rude [to him] nemesis Romney, he's ratcheted up this message to the big bird.

Bain Capital needs to buy all the rights to Big Bird and then make it an enterprise that MAKES money.

Just saw the rebuttal ad on Fox. Goes something like this: Obama mentions BigBird 8 times, PBS 6 times,
Lybia 0 Economy 0

A typical straw man argument from the Left: The Sesame St. budget is infused with only 2% of federal money. A joke that this is being pressed in ads They truly are targeting their ads to MORON voters. There money is wasted....all of the MORON voters are already on their side; they won't find any undecideds in that category. Where they get that Gov. Romney wants to close down Sesame Street can only be characterized as desperation. The Titanic that IS the Obama Campaign keeps hitting iceberg after iceberg.

Give Big Bird an obamaphone so he can call someone who cares!!!

This country is turning into an ash heap and we're supposed to feel sorry for the richest bird, grouch, and little read fuzzy guy in America? Puleeze!

PBS cuts it's great BBC shows short to beg for more bucks from people who already give to them through subsides, just like Planned Parenthood and ACORN, without even knowing it. Until Romney brought it up, how many tax payers knew that Big Bird was subsidized by them? I think it was brilliant to bring up the fact that something as Big Bird is too big to fail!

Obama tries to create a ''dog whistle'' false narrative which equates Big Bird to convicted criminals.

Sesame Street is a gong concern, thanks to the popularity of their product lines.
They don't need a penny of our gov't money borrowed from China.

It is hard to imagine any previous campaign sinking to something so ridiculous. It just shows how little the Obama camp has going for it. They should add some subtitles. Two words. The noun is despair. The adjective is desperate. Or maybe hope-less and short-changed.

Let me deconvolute the President's message:
He wants to borrow money from China, having our children and their children on the hook for that tab, so he can give money to a corporation that posted net assets of $227 million as of June 2011 (data from their tax return). Try and spin that one.

Good, quick comeback on this from Romney pointing out the unseriousness of Obama and his crew dwelling on Big Bird in these serious times. Values, maturity and a broader perspective are the order of the day in responding to Obama's Alinsky snark and ridicule campaign.

Long-term unemployed struggle
to find — and keep — jobs
Washington Post, by Ylan Q. Mui    Original Article
Posted By: Dreadnought- 4/18/2014 10:37:47 PM     Post Reply
For the long-term unemployed, finding a job is hard — but keeping one may be even harder. New research tracking people who have been out of work for six months or longer found that 23 percent of them landed a job within a few months of the study. But a year later, more than a third of that group was unemployed again or out of the labor force altogether. The findings are the latest in a bleak but growing body of literature suggesting long-term unemployment has become a trap that is difficult to escape. Economists say that means the long-term unemployed could become a permanent underclass, left behind by the nation’s broader

Social Security stops trying
to collect on old debts by
seizing tax refunds
Washington Post, by Marc Fisher    Original Article

The Social Security Administration announced Monday that it will immediately cease efforts to collect on taxpayers’ debts to the government that are more than 10 years old. The action comes after The Washington Post reported that the government was seizing state and federal tax refunds that were on their way to about 400,000 Americans who had relatives who owed money to Social Security. In many cases, the people whose refunds were intercepted had never heard of any debt, and the debts dated as far back as the middle of the past century. “I have directed an immediate halt to further

Wendy Davis Ethical Questions Surface

Despite promises to the contrary, it appears that State Senator Wendy Davis (D-Fort Worth) voted on bills that affect her clients and favorably impact the bottom line of her law firm. “I have never done anything in a way that represents a conflict in my voting and something that would benefit me personally,” she said in an interview, but state records seem to tell a different story. The Dallas Morning News´ Senior Political Writer Wayne Slater (DMN) reported that Davis supported legislation governing a toll road project. That would be all well and good except for the fact that the

Democrats Lose Two More Special
Elections They Didn’t Expect To
National Review Online, by John Fund    Original Article
Posted By: Dreadnought- 4/14/2014 8:38:34 AM     Post Reply
Democrats have had a recurring problem in special elections this year: Their voters aren’t turning out. If a weak economy and continued Obamacare problems persist, the November elections could be a disaster for Democrats. Last week, Democrats lost two special elections they weren’t planning to. Arlington, Va., is a classic wealthy ObamaTown, filled with government workers and limousine liberals. Mitt Romney won only 29 percent of the vote in 2012. But last Tuesday, Democrats lost their first election for the five-member Arlington County Board in 15 years when John Vihstadt, a Republican running as an independent, won a vacancy on

Nevada ranch standoff could leave
dirt on Harry Reid’s reputation

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said little as federal agents seized and then released cattle last week from the Bundy ranch, but there is little doubt that the highly charged episode was threatening to become a political headache for the Nevada Democrat. The Bureau of Land Management is headed by former longtime Reid aide Neil Kornze, who was confirmed by the Senate as BLM director on Tuesday, just as federal authorities descended on the cattle ranch outside Mesquite, Nev. Mr. Kornze issued a statement Saturday saying that the bureau would return the cattle and withdraw its agents from the ranch

Democrats settle on fairness
issues hoping to avoid a repeat

On the defensive about their prospects in the midterm elections this fall, congressional Democrats have spent all of April savaging the Republican budget proposal, decrying the Koch brothers and championing a series of bills meant to ingratiate themselves to struggling middle-class voters. In promoting legislation that would extend unemployment benefits, increase the minimum wage and promote equal pay for women, the Democrats have declared themselves the party that will ensure a “fair shot” for all. Republicans, they insist, are the party of special interests. It has been a classic Washington messaging campaign for these partisan

On a trip to Moscow early in her tenure as secretary of state, Hillary Rodham Clinton played the role of international saleswoman, pressing Russian government officials to sign a multibillion-dollar deal to buy dozens of aircraft from Boeing. A month later, Clinton was in China, where she jubilantly announced that the aerospace giant would be writing a generous check to help resuscitate floundering U.S. efforts to host a pavilion at the upcoming World’s Fair. Boeing, she said, “has just agreed to double its contribution to $2 million.” Clinton did not point out that, to secure the donation, the State Department

After presenting at the Academy Awards this year, Kim Novak didn’t want to leave her house. The Hitchcock screen siren, 81, was too humiliated to venture from her home near the Rogue River in Oregon. She read the cruel posts and Internet snark about her appearance, and it was just too much. “It got to me like it gets kids and teenagers,” she told the Associated Press. The “Vertigo” actress, considered one of the great beauties in her day, posted a note on her Facebook wall Thursday, acknowledging that she’d gotten fat injections in her face and addressing her halted

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

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

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.

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
