Barack Obama, our next President

"The road ahead will be long. Our climb will be steep," Obama cautioned. Young and charismatic but with little experience on the national level, Obama smashed through racial barriers and easily defeated ... Full Story

If the free market thought it was a good idea they would be thicker than fleas on a shaggy dog. When the product is right the market will respond. Till then it's a waste of money.

Gov. Chris Christie’s approval rating hits record high

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie’s approval rating continues to soar in the aftermath of Superstorm Sandy.

A Quinnipiac University poll released Wednesday finds Christie with a 74 percent approval rating in the state—the highest rating Quinnipiac has found in 17 years of polling on New Jersey governors. And in a boon for Christie’s bid for a second term, 71 percent of voters say the governor deserves to be re-elected this November.

Christie’s surging poll numbers seem to be a direct response to his stewardship of the state in the aftermath of Sandy. In October, before the storm, Christie’s approval rating was 56 percent and just 52 percent said he deserved to win a second term.

Perhaps the most notable finding in the latest poll is Christie’s popularity among Democrats—which has long been the GOP governor’s biggest weakness in the mostly Democratic state. According to Quinnipiac, 56 percent of Democratic voters approve of the job Christie is doing. And a slight plurality of Democrats—48 percent—say Christie should be re-elected, compared to the 43 percent who oppose his bid for a second term.

The poll’s margin of error is plus or minus 2.9 percent.

What 'Friends of Hamas' and ACORN have in common

From time to time, we still hear Republicans complaining about ACORN, which always strikes me as odd -- ACORN doesn't exist. The organization closed its doors years ago, and is literally incapable of doing whatever it is the right thinks it's doing.

As it happens, fearing the efforts of groups that are both nefarious and imaginary is spreading. Dave Weigel published this gem today.

On February 7, Breitbart News's Editor-at-Large Ben Shapiro published an explosive-looking story under the headline "Secret Hagel Donor? White House Ducks Question on 'Friends of Hamas.'" Quoting "Senate sources," Shapiro claimed that crucial documents on Hagel's "foreign funding" might be kept from the Senate Armed Services Committe because "one of the names listed is a group purportedly called "Friends of Hamas."

It was a short item, three paragraphs, the third paragraph consisting of White House assistant communications director Eric Schultz blowing off Shapiro. It caught fire on the right in no time.

The folks you'd expect to run with this -- RedState, National Review, Mike Huckabee, Lou Dobbs, et al -- did so, and last week, Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.), who's already prone to believe all kinds of strange things he reads on far-right websites, told Hugh Hewitt that Hagel's ties to Friends of Hamas are "more and more concerning."

The problem, as you might have surmised, is that "there's no proof that 'Friends of Hamas' actually exists." As Weigel explained, "The Treasury Department, which designates sponsors of terror, has done so to many charities tied to Hamas.'Friends of Hamas' is not among them. The State Department doesn't designate it, either. And a bit less holistically, a Lexis search for the group reveals absolutely nothing."

So, much of the right has spent a week outraged by Hagel's ties to an organization that's imaginary. The nominee's conservative critics desperately want to pretend he's anti-Israel, so someone made up a claim, and the right embraced it without so much as a hint of skepticism.

In an amusing twist, Frank Gaffney, a far-right activist and prominent anti-Islam voice, had this amazing reaction to reality:

"At this writing and absent the requested disclosure, it cannot be determined whether Mr. Hagel is literally associated with the 'friends' of a designated terrorist organization. The mere fact, though, that it seems entirely ... should be the last straw for Senate Republicans and Democrats alike."

Let me get this straight. The right has accused Hagel of having ties to a group. The group doesn't exist. But the fact that some on the right thought the bogus story might be true should serve as evidence that Hagel is ... bad. Or something.

Hagel's nomination offered an opportunity for a worthwhile debate about military policy, national security, and the use of force around the globe. It's a genuine shame Republicans weren't willing, or perhaps weren't able, to bring their A game.

That's even worse, a flag representing an Unconsitutional state.

The Expansion of Black American Misery under Barack Obama’s Watch,Black folks are not only far worse off “since 2009 under President Obama’s economic and job creation policies”– Africans Americans are the only group that “has taken a definitive step backwards since then.” The main reason:“lack of attention to employment in urban and rural geographic areas where Blacks reside.”

The URBAN REAGAN/BUSH lololol the rural and suburban DEMOCRAT doesn not care about the URBAN democratic MEMBERS lolololol so while the URBAn DEMOCRAT votes twice the SUBURBAN DEMOCRAT gets the JOBS lololol the UNDOCUMENTED "AMERICAN" LOLOLOLO GETS A VOICE lololol

Yeah put a water heater in your tank if you want to come home to fish soup! Heard to many stories about them malfunctioning. Maybe that's what Homer's company makes. Never used one, never will.

Ella Baker and the Limits of Charismatic Masculinity Ella Baker, the consummate organizer,“was very critical of the hot shot Black preachers who would seem to mesmerize their audience with soaring oratory, then leave and expect others to implement an agenda.” She put forward a grassroots critique of overwhelmingly male Black leadership, and showed “more wisdom, courage, and vision then almost all of them.”

THE URBAN REAGAN SPEECH DIDN'T MENTION CAMDEN NJ THESE PEOPLE HAVE LOST THEIR POLICE UNDER THE URBAN REAGAN PRESIDENT lololol Blacks Rally to Save Camden NJ Police Department
“This is a public safety issue, it’s a labor issue, and it’s a political issue,” said Larry Hamm, chairman of the People’s Organization for Progress and featured speaker at a rally to prevent the shutdown of the police department in mostly Black and Latino Camden, New Jersey. The financially distressed town would be patrolled by police from the surrounding, mostly white county. It’s a matter of self-determination, said Hamm.“They’re not going to stop with taking over the finance department; they’re not going to stop with taking over the schools; they’re not going to stop with the police force.”
