Another One?!

No, there’s nothing creepy about  a bunch school kids chanting: “Change has come! Change has come!” No, not at all!

Ann Coulter didn’t mince words on Fox last weekend, when sharing her opinion of lefties who use children this way:


Are these just isolated incidents, or is this type of thing more widespread than we want to believe?

Did ACORN Have A Role In Getting Al Franken Elected?

are-acorn-nuts-59231Shop via Freaking

Katherine Kersten, one of the few sane voices at the MN Red Star is wondering the same thing I’ve been wondering. What would that election have looked like had there have been no ACORN involvement:

Here in Minnesota, ACORN has boasted of playing a major role in the 2008 elections. It claims to have registered 43,000 new voters, which it describes as 75 percent of the state’s new registrations. Franken’s margin of victory in the Senate race was razor-thin: 312 votes out of about 3 million cast. And Minnesota’s laws on proof of voter eligibility are notoriously loose. Did ACORN folks pull some fast ones to help get their favorite son Franken elected — a win that handed Democrats the 60-vote, veto-proof majority that they needed to enact their liberal agenda?

Secretary of State Mark Ritchie assures us that Minnesota’s system of voter verification protects electoral integrity.

But here’s an uncomfortable fact: Ritchie himself was endorsed by the now-notorious ACORN and elected with its help.

I also seem to remember George Soros’s involvement.

So with ACORN and Soros’s help, Franken was able to eke out a big 312 vote win, after being beaten on the first count.

That’s some mandate Al (Porn-0-rama) Franken has.

I think he should be heretofore known as the “ACORN Senator”.


Armed And Dangerous wonders how successful Dems are going to be in the next election, – post ACORN’s power and influence:

I’m not talking about the mere aura of scandal, the prospect that some of the smell coming off of ACORN might cling to the general run of Democratic politicians. That’s not going to happen, not while most of the mainstream media seems ever more intent on operating as an unpaid auxiliary for the Democratic National Committee. No stench will be allowed to adhere, not even if the stalwart partisans of the Fourth Estate have to lick it off with their own tongues. No, the real problem is this: ACORN was the linchpin of the Democratic electoral-fraud machine. Without it, the party’s position going into the next round of elections may be seriously weakened.

Read the whole thing for some excellent analysis.

Obama To Donate $400,000 To Gaddafi Charity, Stiffs Alaskan WWII Vets

Two stories jumped out at me this morning… first we have the President’s plan to donate U.S. taxpayer money to the insane  Libyan dictator’s  family:

The Obama Administration plans to give $400,000 in funding to a Libyan charity run by the Gadhafi family, and U.S. Rep. Mark Kirk (R-Ill.) wants the grant withdrawn.

The money would be divided between two foundations run by the family of Libyan leader Muammar Gadhafi. A $200,000 share is set to go to the Gadhafi Development Foundation, which is run by Gadhafi’s son, Saif, and another $200,000 are to go to Wa Attassimou, an organization run by Muammar Gadhafi’s daughter, Aisha.

And then we have the President’s disapproval of pension money for members of the WWII-era Alaskan Territorial Guard:

The White House move drew swift rebuke from the state’s two senators, Republican Lisa Murkowski and Democrat Mark Begich, who had together sponsored the pension fix.

The legislation honors 26 elderly Alaskans who are the few remaining survivors of a military unit that served the country with valor, Murkowski said, calling the administration’s direction “deeply disappointing, bordering on insensitive.”

See Redstate for an outline of  the services these guardsmen provided to our country in a time of war.

Draw your own conclusions.

We Just Don’t Know What’s Good For Us

Support for the health care reform proposed by President Obama and congressional Democrats has hit an all time low, 41% for 56% against, according to Rassmussen Reports:

That’s down two points from a week ago and the lowest level of support yet measured.

Also according to Rassmussen:

Sixty-six percent (66%) of voters nationwide say they’re at least somewhat angry about the current policies of the federal government. Thirty-six percent (36%) are Very Angry.

How can that be after Obama’s big media blitz a couple weekends ago? His unprecedented feat of appearing on five talk shows on one Sunday was supposed to create a “buzz factor” , and “re-establish momentum” that would gain support for ObamaCare. Well, it created a buzz, alright, but not the right kind. When you consider that people were already complaining that Obama was on t.v too much, as far back as last January…a five show blitz in one day, after a summer health care speeches does not seem like a good idea. Especially because he had no new content to share with viewers, just the same old dubious claims. How can he generate momentum, without presenting some new improvement over what has already been offered?

Even Howard Fineman of Newsweek is getting sick of the shtick:

The president’s problem isn’t that he is too visible; it’s the lack of content in what he says when he keeps showing up on the tube. Obama can seem a mite too impressed with his own aura, as if his presence on the stage is the Answer. There is, at times, a self-referential (even self-reverential) tone in his big speeches.

Before the Democrats try to push the bill through without any Republican support, they would do well to heed Senator McConnell’s words:

If they try to use this legislative loophole called reconciliation, what they’ll be doing in effect is jamming through a proposal to rewrite the economy with about 24 hours of debate,” McConnell argued during an appearance on CNN. “I think that that will produce a very, very severe reaction among the American people.”
