It's already been established - it's a fact - that voter fraud exists and that one fraudulent vote can influence an election.The appearance, mostly in Cleveland's predominantly black neighborhoods, of billboards warning against voter fraud is constitutionally protected speech.
It is also insulting, demeaning, belittling speech—coming from people who choose to remain anonymous—and a despicable election tactic.
The billboards, posted here and in Cincinnati and Milwaukee by what has been identified only as a private family foundation, insinuate that the neighborhoods in which they are found are hotbeds of voter fraud, which, of course, they are not.

So....WTH we doing in Libya??????????aside from violating war powers acts and aiding and abetting failed statehood terrorism?)
Donley’s best estimate, given to reporters at a breakfast meeting on Tuesday, was that the war has cost the Air Force about $75 million so far, with expenses running to $4 million a day. That was the bill when 89 U.S. planes were directly or indirectly involved in the combat mission. Now he expects it to drop, but to what, he didn’t say.
By contrast, Defense Secretary Robert Gates told Congress last week that without a U.S. combat role in the Libya war, he expects the bill to run to $40 million per month. That doesn’t exactly match the Air Force’s tally. By Donley’s figures, if the Air Force slashed its costs for the war in half, it would still exceed Gates’ totals — and that’s not counting the Navy’s contribution.
None of this confusion should come as a surprise. The Libya war was launched on the fly and its goals are uncertain. No wonder the war bill is written with an Etch-a-Sketch.
Stellar business EXPERIENCE For ALL of America-IN America again.

How much is spent on campaign ads? Everyday piles of full color 8x10 double sided ads arrive to go in the trash, and we know they don't come cheap. Who is influenced by tv ads anyway?
Citizens United has to be overturned

Wrong. Wanna tell us why Bush didn't want rein in F&F?
Bush: The Administration strongly believes that the housing GSEs should be focused on their core housing mission, particularly with respect to low-income Americans and first-time homebuyers. Instead, provisions of H.R. 1461 that expand mortgage purchasing authority would lessen the housing GSEs' commitment to low-income homebuyers.
That bill was the one where Mike Oxely said the WH gave Congress a one finger salute.
FYI....the co-sponser of that bill was Barney Frank. Who I'm pretty sure is a Democrat.
BTW..."Congress has full control of all the purse strings of the US government."
Nice to see the acknowledgement that Obama doesn't set the budget.

Yes, you are correct. That Nathan Sproul dude did the trick. Just ask John Kerry.

Right, because we all know now that corporations are run and staffed by aliens.
You want CU gone, union influence goes too.

thank you for giving substantiave backup to the msm media bias that is easily obvious. I'm guessing the Obamabot who attached a funny icon to your post, has the same manic laugh as Biden. maybe it was Biden.

hollywierd is beginning to have second thoughts about The One:
Tinseltown is turning on Bam
Look out. Hollywood is having a Republican crisis.
Once America’s most dependable bastion of liberal blather, the land of make believe has gone rogue. Each week, the new movie season brings another defection to Camp Romney, a place where taxes are less punishing, foreign policy is reliably pro-Israel, & stupid movies like “Innocence of Muslims’’ are not blamed for costing American lives.
It’s the terrorists, stupid.
You can see this sea change in the new Ben Affleck-directed movie,“Argo.” Once an ardent Obama-phile, the disaffected Hollywood hunk has chosen this election season to take on flaccid Democratic ex-President Jimmy Carter with a terrific and damning (to the government) new film about the 1979-81 Iranian hostage crisis. It seems no accident that the film brilliantly foretells today’s bloody events in the Middle East.
The land that once loved Obama is not stupid when it comes to selling tickets. The unexpected hit of the summer was Dinesh D’Souza’s documentary,“2016: Obama’s America.’’ The stinging big-screen indictment of Obama’s socialist leanings and disloyalty to the state of Israel was — surprise!— produced by the Oscar winner behind “Schindler’s List,”“Rain Man” and “Jurassic Park,” Gerald Molen.
“All of my movies have been about telling the truth,” Molen, a rare Hollywood Republican — who knew?— told The Hollywood Reporter.
Even hard-left filmmaker Michael Moore has grown weary of a commander-in-chief who doesn’t appear up to the job. After Obama’s disastrous performance in the debate against Mitt Romney, Moore tweeted,“If Romney keeps this up ... Obama is going to vote for him!”
“Argo,” with its early Oscar buzz, stellar cast and formerly reliably liberal director in Affleck, may present the most chilling depiction of our enemies since “The Manchurian Candidate.’’
The flick’s backdrop is the snatching of 52 American hostages by Iranians at the US Embassy in Tehran in 1979. The hostage crisis carried on for months, as an impotent Carter couldn’t do anything right.
“Carter’s s--tting enough bricks to build a pyramid,’’ remarks a CIA superior Jack O’Connell (Bryan Cranston).
The CIA, meanwhile, hatches a plot to extract 6 Americans who’ve escaped the embassy & are holed up at the Canadian ambassador’s house. In a real-life drama that was kept secret until the Clinton administration, CIA operative Tony Mendez (Affleck) rescues the 6 Americans after 87 days, convincing the Iranians that the Americans are really part of a Canadian film crew.
The remaining 52 hostages finally came home after a mind-boggling 444 days in captivity. By then, fed-up voters replaced Carter with Republican President Ronald Reagan.
Affleck, no big fan of Romney, has soured on Obama.“I voted for Obama last time, although he got to be all things to all people then,” he said while promoting his film.“And now, he’s got a record, which makes it really different ... I obviously have more complicated feelings.”
“Argo” evokes another complicated recent Middle East crisis: the murders of American Ambassador to Libya Christopher Stevens and 3 colleagues. 5 days after the event, UN Ambassador Susan Rice hit the talk shows, insisting that Stevens’ killing resulted from a “spontaneous” protest rally against “Innocence of Muslims,” a schlocky film seen as insulting to the prophet Mohammed.
The Obama administration wanted to blame the deaths on something out of its control but has since backed off the claim, looking as weak as Jimmy Carter at his most impotent.
In 2012, the Hollywood brain trust knows that images of American strength sell better than those of self-flagellation.
There is hope.
