    New Washington Post poll on a generic house ballot gives Democrats a 52%-38% advantage. Also in August 25% of the country said they were Republican, now its 20%.

    I’m not saying Dems should celebrate yet but its a good sign.

    Mr. Cynical spews:

    “Grasping at straws” Mike Jones quotes the 14th ranked poll which polls adults who do not vote and even illegals!

    Here is the #1 Ranked Poll which polls LIKELY VOTERS (which is what matters when you are talking about elections don’t you think Mike??)

    Tuesday, October 20, 2009

    The GOP advantage over Democrats increased from two points to five in the latest edition of the Generic Congressional Ballot. The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey shows that 42% would vote for their district’s Republican congressional candidate while 37% would opt for his or her Democratic opponent.

    Support for Democrats dropped two points this week, while support for the GOP slightly increased. Voters not affiliated with either party heavily favor the GOP, 40% to 23%.

    To my Friends who are ALWAYS RIGHT–
    Can you believe how pathetic the Obama Groupies have become…grasping at straws!

    Mr. Cynical spews:

    And it’s going to get worse.
    ACORN is busted for lying again yesterday on a 32-minute tape for what happened in Philly and there are more tapes to come.
    Voter lists are being reviewed and contested nationwide trying to vet out all the ACORN fraud.

    If you KLOWNS think things look bleak now…you are in for a shock. Today is rosey compared to next June. Obama needs to keep attacking Fox with his HitSquads and talkin’ non-Presidential smack (which excites about 2% of the voters like you KLOWNS)..
    The list of 2010 and 2012 Campaign issues is massive. Obama won running on no record and no scrutiny. The American Public is wide awake…especially those unaffiliated with either Party.
    Obama has blown it.
    Having been GIVEN Trust of the American Public based on a positive HOPE & CHANGE campaign and then watching that guy MUCKRAKING is waaaaay too funny.
    Meanwhile, Unemployment is 9.8%.
    Underemployment is 17%.
    And Obama LIED about the impact of the Porkulous Package. LIED!
    He promised 8% Unemployment. PROMISED.

    Obama fancies himself a clever wordsmith..like our beloved Goldy (congrats to the Phillies BTW..I think they will beat the Yankees)….but like Goldy often finds out, self-perceived clever is arrogance which ultimately gets it’s just rewards.

    Hey Obama said “they’re just words”.
    How unPresidential.

    @2 Cynical, the Index of Leading Economic Indicators is up for the 6th straight month! Is that what you call “failure”?

    Before Obama took over the economcy was in a tailspin. Although it’s not exactly zooming upward just yet, Obama has steered it into level flight, and the danger of a fatal crash is past. He saved all the passengers.

    Voters should think twice before they let Republicans into the cockpit again.

    Roger Rabbit spews:

    Some people are referring to the current crop of jobless college grads and young people as the “lost generation.” They will never make up the income they’ve lost during this depression. The job experience they couldn’t get during these lost years will put them at a disadvantage for the rest of their lives. Their lifetime earnings will be less because of all this. And they will never forget it was Republicans who did this to them.

    Ummm. c’mon Rog, it was done with massive debt aka smoke-and-mirrors. Of course when you borrow away our kids future you are going to have an uptick. Is it sustainable?? You yourself said this market is a bubble.
    I call it smoke-and-mirrors SHORT-TERM.
    When our kids have to paybakc the massive Porkulous $787 BILLION plus the auto bailout, kash for klunkers, financial bailouts etc….plus this newest boondoggle of a Health Care Bill…will you write the checks for them Rog??
    Luckily you won’t be alive to have to answer for this BORROW, SQUANDER Short-term tidbits for politics Obamunism.

    It is a phoney number Rog.
    We cannot keep borrowing & squandering forever.
    The auto sales hit a nosedive after the incentives.
    NIce try though.

    PS-
    You also often refer to your “stock-flipping” implying a lack of positive about the long-term. You read the Economist right? It isn’t sustainable Rog. It just gives us a few more gulps of air and drowns us in debt.

    GRAYSON: I’d like to ask the gentleman from Georgia a few questions, and I’ll yield to him for the purpose of having answers to these questions. Does the gentleman from Georgia know what a bill of Attainder is?

    BROUN: A bill of, the answer’s yes, in fact it’s been very explicitly described by the court’s.

    GRAYSON: What is it?

    BROUN: [long pause. Scrambling through papers.] The courts have applied a two pronged test. Number one, whether specific individuals or entities are affected by the staute, Number two, when the legislation affects a “punishment,” on those individuals, it serves no legitamate regulatory purpose.

    GRAYSON: What, um, does the Constitution says about Bills of Attainder?

    BROUN: Oh, I suggest that this is not a Bill of Attainder. It’s, um, certainly does focus on a specific entity, but it does not inflict punishment by any means. In fact…

    GRAYSON: Will the gentleman from Georgia explain what the Constitution says about Bills of Attainder?

    ANOTHER CONGRESSMAN: Mr. Chairman, will the gentleman yield for a second? The gentleman from Florida?

    GRAYSON: No. I’d like an answer to my question. […]

    GRAYSON: The question is, will the gentleman from Georgia agree with me that the Bill of Attainder clause was intended not as a narrow or technical provision, but as an implementation of the seperation of powers, and a general safeguard against legislative exercise of the judicial function, or more simply, trial by legislature. Will the gentleman agree to that?

    BROUN: No, sir, I will not, and I ask counsel to help us with this. I think all this is determination of the court and I’d like to appeal to Mr. Sensenberner.

    GRAYSON: Well, I’m sorry, but it’s my time, not yours or Mr. Sensenberner’s, so I will reclaim my time, and I will point out that what you just you would not agree to is from a Supreme Court case called the United States v. Brown, something I would expect you might know about, given your name.

    Here ya go Cyniklown…Rep. Alan Grayson takes apart one of your “sharp as a tack” Wingnut Congressmen, the stupifyingly idiotic Rep. Paul Broun (R-GA). Gotta give you the warm fuzzies about how competent these assclowns are. Kinda like you!!!

    So it posted before I got to respond.

    The majority of stimulus money will take effect in 2010 and we knew the economy would get worst before it got better. We hoped it wouldn’t get worst than 8% but it did thanks to 8 years of messed of GOP economic policies, actually it goes back to Reagan. How are the American people supposed to trust the GOP after they messed up like they did.

    Instead he is muckraking against those who dare disagree with THE MAN in power.

    Puddy @ 19
    Even you would have to admit that Obama inherited a colossal mess from Bush, wouldn’t you? We are going to have some difficulties in the next few years given the magnitude of the mess, but we are clearly headed in the right direction. You might have noticed if you were in touch with actual news that Congress is taking up the issue of getting rid of the antitrust exemption the healthcare insurance industry currently enjoys, and that the Obama Administration is moving to limit the compensation of executives of entities which received stimulus funds. These measures will resonate in the heartland, my friend. They are not only politically wise moves, but they reflect wise and just policy and remind us why we vote for Democrats. You have a lot of years of whining in the political wilderness ahead of you, Puddy. Store up your strength.

    Puddy @ 29: “While the economy was dropping . . .”

    Dropping? Just dropping? While I recognize that even acknowledging that much was probably hard for you, there is a difference between dropping and totally cratered, which is where we were. I don’t know what you’d consider “extras.” I’m sure that I would not consider whatever you’re referring to as extras. With regard to Steve, he seems to be a most rational fellow, who takes pleasure, as I sometimes do, in goading you guys on the fringe of the rightwing.

    Birth Control Czar? A few tidbits from Wiki,

    The nomination of Keroack, an anti-contraceptive advocate, to a position responsible for ensuring low-income women get access to birth control has been criticized.[3][4][5][6]

    The Massachusetts native has faced criticism before, after making the claim that sex with multiple partners hurts women’s ability to bond by altering their brain chemistry.[7] He claims that premarital sex suppresses the hormone oxytocin, thereby impairing one’s ability to forge a successful long-term relationship.[8]

    Before assuming his position with HHS on November 20, 2006, Keroack was the medical director of A Woman’s Concern, a Christian nonprofit organization based in Dorchester, Massachusetts. It runs six centers in the state that offer free pregnancy testing, ultrasounds and counseling and works to “help women escape the temptation and violence of abortion.” Its crisis pregnancy centers oppose contraception and do not distribute information concerning birth control.[2]

    In January 2007, Keroack received “two formal warnings from the Massachusetts board of medicine ordering him to refrain from prescribing drugs to people who are not his patients and from providing mental health counseling without proper training.”[9]

    Fuck yeah, put him in charge!!

    Mr. Cynical spews:

    Read what Charles Krauthammer said about Obama last Monday. I think you will agree with at least most of it. I agree with pretty much all of it–

    1. Mr. Obama is a very intellectual, charming individual. He is not to be underestimated. He is a cool customer who doesn’t show his emotions. It’s very hard to know what’s behind the mask. The taking down of the Clinton dynasty was an amazing accomplishment. The Clintons still do not understand what hit them. Obama was in the perfect place at the perfect time.

    2. Obama has political skills comparable to Reagan and Clinton. He has a way of making you think he’s on your side, agreeing with your position, while doing the opposite. Pay no attention to what he SAYS; rather, watch what he DOES!

    3. Obama has a ruthless quest for power. He did not come to Washington to make something out of himself, but rather to change everything, including dismantling capitalism. He can’t be straightforward on his ambitions, as the public would not go along.
    He has a heavy hand, and wants to level the playing field with income redistribution and punishment to the achievers of society. He would like to model the USA to Great Britain or Canada.

    4. His three main goals are to control ENERGY, PUBLIC EDUCATION, and NATIONAL HEALTHCARE by the Federal government. He doesn’t care about the auto or financial services industries, but got them as an early bonus. The cap and trade will add costs to everything and stifle growth. Paying for FREE college education is his goal. Most scary is his healthcare program, because if you make it FREE and add 46,000,000 people to a Medicare-type single-payer system, the costs will go through the roof. The only way to control costs is with massive RATIONING of services, like in Canada. God forbid!

    5. He has surrounded himself with mostly far-left academic types. No one around him has ever even run a candy store. But they are going to try and run the auto, financial, banking and other industries. This obviously can’t work in the long run. Obama is not a socialist; rather he’s a far-left secular progressive bent on nothing short of revolution. He ran as a moderate, but will govern from the hard left. Again, watch what he does, not what he says.

    6. Obama doesn’t really see himself as President of the United States, but more as a ruler over the world. He sees himself above it all, trying to orchestrate & coordinate various countries and their
    agendas. He sees moral equivalency in all cultures. His apology tour in Germany and England was a prime example of how he sees America, as an imperialist nation that has been arrogant, rather than a great noble nation that has at times made errors. This is the first President ever who has chastised our allies and appeased our enemies!

    7. He is now handing out goodies. He hopes that the bill (and pain) will not come due until after he is reelected in 2012. He would like to blame all problems on Bush from the past, and hopefully his successor in the future. He has a huge ego, and Dr. Krauthammer believes he is a narcissist.

    8. Republicans are in the wilderness for a while, but will emerge strong. Republicans are pining for another Reagan, but there will never be another like him. Krauthammer believes Mitt Romney, Tim Pawlenty & Bobby Jindahl (except for his terrible speech in February) are the future of the party. Newt Gingrich is brilliant, but has baggage. Sarah Palin is sincere and intelligent, but needs to really be seriously boning up on facts and info if she is to be a serious candidate in the future. We need to return to the party of lower taxes, smaller government, personal responsibility, strong national defense, and state’s rights.

    9. The current level of spending is irresponsible and outrageous. We are spending trillions that we don’t have. This could lead to hyperinflation, depression or worse. No country has ever spent themselves into prosperity. The media is giving Obama, Reid and Pelosi a pass because they love their agenda. But eventually the bill will come due and people will realize the huge bailouts didn’t work, nor will the stimulus package. These were trillion-dollar payoffs to Obama’s allies, unions and the Congress to placate the left, so he can get support for #4 above.

    10. The election was over in mid-September when Lehman brothers failed, fear and panic swept in, we had an unpopular President, and the war was grinding on indefinitely without a clear outcome. The people are in pain, and the mantra of change caused people to act emotionally. Any Dem would have won this election; it was surprising it was as close as it was.

    11. In 2012, if the unemployment rate is over 10%, Republicans will be swept back into power. If it’s under 8%, the Dems continue to roll. If it’s between 8-10%, it will be a dogfight. It will all be about the economy.

    I think the MAJORITY of it will be about the Economy…but Obama’s progress in the Middle East will also be scrutinized. If Americans are still dying and Afghanistan is a mess, there will be a penalty to pay for Obama delays in deploying more troops for some not overwhelmed by the economy.

    You have to be smart enough NOT to swallow the bullshit from commentators whose agenda has clearly failed. There is a new direction and it’ss going to take time to work. The economic doctrine of trickle-down is a fraud and a failure and was designed to wreck the middle class and re-distrubte the wealth of the nation UPWARD. Those efforts were a tremendous success. That is why we are in thee mess we are in now. Unfortunately I still don’t think our newly elected government gets it.

    This country’s national security, economic stability and success is predicated on…built on “bubble-up”. Living wage jobs for anyone and everyone who can qualify. Strong domestic manufacturing…sane and effective protection for domestic manufacturers against artificially cheap foriegn imports.

    I simply don’t take anyone seriously who does not recognize this as a basic fact of economic life. Jobs, jobs, jobs, jobs, jobs. That is the key. Domestic industry is a national security issue. BOTH parties have sold out and abdicated their responsibility but the vast majority of the damage was done under Republican rule, starting with Reagan busting the flight controllers union.

  79. 106

    Mr. Cynical spews:

    Actually, the number since 2003 is less than 4700. Of that number, over 130 have died since Obama became President or 17/mo.
    During the Bush Presidency where the vast majority of the Iraq hostility took place, the death toll was about 63/month.
    Since Obama took office, the US has lost some of it’s gains.

    In Afghanistan, per Wikipedia:

    As of 11 October 2009, there have been 1,384 coalition deaths in Afghanistan as part of ongoing coalition operations (Operation Enduring Freedom and ISAF) since the U.S. invasion in 2001.[1] In this total, the American figure is for deaths “In and Around Afghanistan” which, as defined by the U.S. Department of Defense, includes some deaths in Pakistan and Uzbekistan[2] and the deaths of four CIA operatives.

    Approx. 347 US deaths since Obama took office or about 43/month.
    During the Bush Administration since the start of action in 10/01, the death toll was approx. 11/mo.

    So when you look at combining monthly death rates in the 2 areas of conflict…
    Under Bush==74/mo.
    Under Obama==60/mo.

    Under Obama, we are sitting around waiting for Obama to re-consider his March, 2009 commitment to fight to win.

    @108: ooops, Richard Clarke was the head…and Cressy….some underling? Who cares about Cressy? Weak again, Puddy.

    Clark detailed the threat of al quaida (you remember, the threat that your friends (the conservatives) claimed was not true and that Clinton was using to distract from “Monica”).

    Yup, and then Clarke detailed how Bush decided to ignore anything that Clinton thought was important – including al qaida.

    For someone with a supposedly good memory – you sure forget a lot.

    Try this from the NY Times:

    One official scheduled to testify, Richard A. Clarke, who was President Bill Clinton’s counterterrorism coordinator, said in an interview that the warning about the Qaeda threat could not have been made more bluntly to the incoming Bush officials in intelligence briefings that he led.

    At the time of the briefings, there was extensive evidence tying Al Qaeda to the bombing in Yemen two months earlier of an American warship, the Cole, in which 17 sailors were killed.

    ”It was very explicit,” Mr. Clarke said of the warning given to the Bush administration officials. ”Rice was briefed, and Hadley was briefed, and Zelikow sat in.” Mr. Clarke served as Mr. Bush’s counterterrorism chief in the early months of the administration, but after Sept. 11 was given a more limited portfolio as the president’s cyberterrorism adviser.

    The sworn testimony from the high-ranking Clinton administration officials — including Secretary of State Madeleine K. Albright, Defense Secretary William S. Cohen and Samuel R. Berger, Mr. Clinton’s national security adviser — is scheduled for Tuesday and Wednesday.

    They are expected to testify along with Secretary of State Colin L. Powell and Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld, who will answer for the Bush administration, as well as George J. Tenet, director of central intelligence in both administrations.

    While Clinton officials have offered similar accounts in the past, a new public review of how they warned Mr. Bush’s aides about the need to deal quickly with the Qaeda threat could prove awkward to the White House, especially in the midst of a presidential campaign.

    Yup – maybe if Bush/Cheney had actually thought about the consequences of going into Iraq we could have saved thousands of lives – both Iraqi and US.

    Instead, they trumped up evidence and got us into a war that we did not need to fight against a country that was never a threat.

    In the meantime, the incompetent Bush/Cheney regime failed to finish the job in Afghanistan – creating the almost unwinnable mess that is there today.

    And an idiot like Klynical, who supported the unnecessary Iraq war, is now criticizing Obama for re-evaluating the conditions in Afghanistan (run by the corrupt Bush favorite, Karzai).

    Yeah, we need to think long and hard about wasting american lives in a tough war….and if it is worth it to protect a corrupt government.

    “During the transition between administrations, National Security Adviser Sandy Berger arranged several extensive briefings on this last subject for Bush’s incoming national security adviser, Condoleeza Rice, and others on the Bush team, including Vice President Cheney. One briefing lasted half a day. Berger told them that Osama bin Laden was an ‘existential threat’ and told them that he wanted ‘to underscore how important this issue is.’ In another briefing, Richard Clarke, head of counterrorism in the NSC, the single most knowledgeable expert in the government, gave them a complete tutorial on the subject. In yet another briefing, CIA officials were brought in to go over all the intelligence available on terrorism.

    “Don Kerrick, a three-star general and outgoing deputy national security adviser, overlapped for four months with the new Bush people. He submitted a memo for the new National Security Council warning of the danger of terrorism. ‘We are going to be struck again,’ he wrote. But as Kerrick explained to me, he received no answer to his memo. ‘They didn’t respond,’ he said. ‘They never responded. It was not high on their priority list. I was never invited to one meeting. They never asked me to do anything. They were not focusing. They didn’t see terrorism as the big megaissue that the Clinton administration saw it as. They were concentrated on what they thought were higher priorities than terrorism.’ The Principals meeting of national security officials took up terrorism only once, after constant pressure from Clarke, on September 4, 2001, and at that meeting they discussed using unmanned Predator drone spy aircraft, but no decision was made. ‘Unfortunately,’ said Kerrick, ‘September 11 gave them something to focus on.’”

    Roger Rabbit spews:

    I urge impartial readers of this blog who are unfamiliar with puddy’s M.O. to keep in mind this is an example of how he substitutes fictions that he makes up himself for verifiable historical facts. Puddy does this habitually, because puddy isn’t as stupid as some of the other trolls on this blog, and does understand the slickest way to “win” an argument is to change the facts from which the conclusions flow. That way, his arguments seem logical. Trouble is, when puddy lies about what the facts are, which is every time he posts, that has the effect of invalidating all of his arguments.

    How is Puddy misquoting history when it was written by the NY Times to lend gravitas to preznit-erect Obama and his administration? And you qite from loony lefty Sindney Blumenthal?

    SoS Clinton ex-senior campaign advisor for preznit.

    The man who gold-plated guilt-by-association tactics.

    @118 Puddy urges impartial readers of this blog who are unfamiliar with Roger Rabbit’s M.O keep in mind this is an example of how Roger substitutes fictions that he makes up himself for verifiable historical facts. Roger likes to puff himself up with rewrites of other people’s information. An astute reader will spot specific key words you can use on Google. Searching with those key words will lead you to the original information author where Roger hijacked the information and rewrites it as his “own thoughts”. The HA Libtardo simpleton class will pat Roger between his floppy ears saying good bunny without realizing much of the material has been plagiarized. Then Roger will posit “truths” from whackamole kook-aid sites. He delivers political half-truths all the time. Pay attention to his “entries” and search and see him in “action”.

    His best works are

    1) This is how things work posts
    2) Guessing politics of other locations like Stafford County VA and Cuyahoga County Ohio.
    3) His Haiti posts were amazing
    4) He tried to redefine the word IF

    Pay attention to the dumb bunny. He’ll post crap into a thread totally unrelated to the thread and the blog owners let the old flea bag bunny slide.
