Obama Proves Campaign is Dead in the Water

Oh my.  I’ll bet his staff have some changes coming after this photo op:

Just how a bunch of dying farmland in the background helps the Obama case is beyond me…  According to Jim Hoft, the issue Obama was trying to make is that it is Republican’s fault that relief for farmers was not granted.  Except, of course, the bill in question died in the Democrat controlled Senate.

A Tale of Two Teens

Here’s a great comparison of teenage Obama verses teenage Ryan, courtesy of Jim Hoft of Gateway Pundit.  This one caught my eye in particular because when I was a teen, the Oscar Mayer commercials were everywhere, and even though my last name is spelled differently, I still got called Oscar by erstwhile friends.

What Jim Hoft points out is that Ryan had a job as a teen, driving the Oscar Mayer Weinermobile. 

Obama, by his own admission, was more of a Choom loving Scooby-doo type teen.

Can anyone say Scooby snacks?


Ryan Pick is a Winner

Well, I woke up this morning to a pleasant surprise.  I had become used to things just not going the way I thought they should this election cycle.  Romney was my fourth choice.  However, Paul Ryan is almost as exciting a VP choice as Sarah Palin was, and the Tea Party and the Republican base are jumping for joy.  Romney expects $3 million in donations just from announcing Ryan, that is how fired up the based is.

Good pick, Mitt.  Keep it up!

Shame on Obama: Joe Soptic, lies, and the grey shirt

This now infamous video by the Obama Super PAC (Priorities USA) is one of the most offensive, misleading, and pathetic attempts at a smear to ever grace a political campaign.  Shame on Obama.  More shame on Obama and his miscreant surrogates for trying to deny knowledge and involvement.  The Obama campaign has already included Joe Soptic in official conference calls,and in official campaign videos (wearing the same grey shirt and featuring the same hard hat). 

Worse, the Obama.com website features a slide quoting Joe Soptic, with the official Obama campaign comment making the same offensive and just plain wrong implication that Bain killed his wife:


A couple quick questions:  Was the Priorities USA video shot at the same time with the same crew as the Obama videos, or did they receive the raw footage from Obama’s campaign?  Isn’t it illegal to coordinate your official campaign with a Super PAC?

Here is the Priorities USA smear video, pay attention to the shirt at the hard hat in the background:

Now, look at the official campaign videos from Obama, with scenes that have Joe Soptic wearing the same shirt and with the same hard hat:

Watch the Grey Shirt and Hard Hat

Reality check.  Bain extended the life of GST Steel’s life by years.  The plant was closed because the militant actions of Joe Soptic’s union as they refused cuts necessary to compete with foreign steel. The plant closed years after Romney left Bain.  Joe Soptic’s wife had a job and medical insurance for at least a year after the plant closed.  Joe Soptic’s wife died six years later, having apparently been unaware or unwilling to seek treatment. 

Therefore, according to Obama, this is Romney’s fault.

Shame, Obama.  Shame.

Here is some more background on the union strike that set up the final days of GST Steel.

Contract talks foundered and the union went on strike in April 1997. The first standoff since 1959 quickly turned nasty. Workers shot bottle rockets at security guards, tossed nails in the roadways to flatten the tires of nonunion trucks and pounded on the windows of vehicles as they left the plant.

During that time, negotiation for the union were being handled by David Foster, now part of the Green Jobs fraud being foisted on our suffering economy.  I’d bet a little money there is a connection between David Foster, Joe Soptic, and the Obama campaign.


Via HotAir, here is the audio from the Obama campaign conference call of May 14, 2012, featuring Joe Soptic and Obama campaign official Stephanie Cutter:

Desperation time.

Then again, I did have time to work on a major update, coming soon.



Why Kids are Liberal (and Liberals are Kids)

imageHere is a great post from Wolfe-ocracy comparing the view of life from the eyes of a three year old to the views of a liberal.  Something I have talked about before, but this post is a lot funnier:

I have come to a most horrifying realization: my 3-year old son, the apple of my eye, the fruit of my loins… is, in fact, a die-hard Liberal. Sure, go ahead and scoff!  But consider the following evidence, and then judge for yourself:

  • He has no concept of money, and constantly marvels at my “vast wealth” — because I have a job and have money to spend, while he does not.
  • He spends almost every hour of every day asking me to buy him stuff — not knowing or caring about how much these things actually cost.  When I ask why he thinks he should get these things, he says, “Because I want it.”
  • He talks about “sharing,” but only when he wants to share my things (ice cream, cake, hamburgers, etc).  Then when I ask him to share his things, he says “No.”
  • When we play superheroes, and he’s Batman and I’m the Joker, he’ll stop suddenly and say, “But Daddy, the Joker is only pretending to be bad.  Really, he’s a good guy!  So I’ll be nice to you and now we’re friends!”
  • The minute he doesn’t get his way he cries and screams and tells me he doesn’t like me anymore.

Right on buddy!  Read the whole post, it’s great.

Another Drudge Juxtaposition Editorial

As has been noted by many others, Drudge often offers commentary without directly saying anything, just by choice of pictures, placement of articles and phrasing of headlines, or even making the home page black and white.  Here is today’s offering:


Summer makes people dumber and fatter, Obama is not meeting with his jobs council, because he has a lot on his plate (drinking beer), so Romney gets active, and Bush reminds him that life after the Presidency is great.


Thanks, Matt.

Romney Hits Hard on the Failure of Stimulus

Great reminder of where Obama has focused his efforts, and our money.

Poor President Obama

If he get’s re-elected, look at the mess he’s going to inherit.

Best People to Blog with

imageOk, I admit that this post is more than a bit Rule 5 in nature.

As I was writing another post, it occurred to me that sometimes the best scenery is not just Best Places to Blog from, but also Best People to Blog with.  Sucks to be me.

I think I am going to make this a regular feature.  Maybe I can even get some link love from Stacy.
