Barack Obama, our next President

Heritage's in-house white supremacist fir —er,'resigned'

You see, Heritage was perfectly happy hiring a white supremacist and using him to author "studies" like the one that claimed that every undocumented immigrant was on welfare and would never get off welfare. Heck, that "study" was the big coming out party for new Heritage chief Jim DeMint, his way of showing the political world that Heritage was a playa!

And then people looked at the report, laughed at its ludicrous conclusions, and wondered why the organization employed racists. And before you knew it, it was crisis management time.

So Richwine had a choice: be fired, or pretend it was his idea. Given that choice, he apparently decided to spend more time with his family. Or pursue new opportunities elsewhere.

I wonder if the KKK is hiring?

Jason Richwine's Excellent Adventure
Between Niall Ferguson's joke about Keynes and the saga of Jason Richwine, it's been a lousy week for Harvard. Richwine, you may remember, was the Heritage Foundation policy wonk who co-wrote the cost estimate of the immigration bill—a document that was derided by Republicans who wanted the bill to pass. It got worse for Richwine after that, with reporters noticing his long record of research into race, IQ scores, and immigrants. So I talked to his dissertation advisers.
At the start of his dissertation, Richwine thanked his three advisers—George Borjas, Christopher Jenks, and Richard Zeckhauser—for being so helpful and so bold. Borjas “helped me navigate the minefield of early graduate school,” he wrote.“Richard Zeckhauser, never someone to shy away from controversial ideas, immediately embraced my work.”
Yet they don’t embrace everything Richwine’s done since.“Jason’s empirical work was careful,” Zeckhauser told me over email.“Moreover, my view is that none of his advisors would have accepted his thesis had he thought that his empirical work was tilted or in error. However, Richwine was too eager to extrapolate his empirical results to inferences for policy.”
Borjas’ own work on immigration and inequality has led to a few two-minutes-hate moments in the press. He wasn’t entirely convinced by Richwine, either.
“I have never worked on anything even remotely related to IQ, so don't really know what to think about the relation between IQ, immigration, etc,” Borjas told me in an email.“In fact, as I know I told Jason early on since I've long believed this, I don't find the IQ academic work all that interesting. Economic outcomes and IQ are only weakly related, and IQ only measures one kind of ability. I've been lucky to have met many high-IQ people in academia who are total losers, and many smart, but not super-smart people, who are incredibly successful because of persistence, motivation, etc. So I just think that, on the whole, the focus on IQ is a bit misguided.”

We agree... Kermit Gosnell was also making house calls in Cleveland for the Castro Brothers. Oh....and his car had a Brother Obama bumper-sticker on it.

Realtime is trying to distract from Obama's priorities. Dunce.
That's what the totalitarians on the left do. Distract and obfuscate, which is exactly what they did about Benghazi. The incompetent Messiah Jive-ass punk Obama and incompetent Boob Hillary Clinton are experts at deception.

Dumb Dave just did it as well.

It's as old as their race card.

You Neo-Nazi LIBERALS opposed the Invasion of Iraq. YOU Neo-Nazis support any Arab country because they all oppose Israel and support exterminating the Jews... Once you understand the Obama Administration is fully partnered with the Muslim Brotherhood, everything Barack and his cadre do makes perfect sense.

If you want to know what Benghazimania is really all about — here’s your answer courtesy of The New York Times.

"American Crossroads, the Karl Rove-led super PAC, has released the first attack ad of the 2016 campaign, accusing Hillary Clinton of mishandling the Benghazi killings filled with innuendo and as many unflattering pictures as possible".

We have a long way to go, but it’s entirely possible Karl Rove will lose another election for Republicans in 2016 if what we see then resembles the same kind of campaigns we saw in 2008 and 2012. He could go 0 for 3. Republicans are desperate.

What's worse these ringers think if they repeat it enough times it may sound like its true. A bit like fairy-tales that get passed down through the ages. But conveniently ignore other facts like a Republican lead congress insisting on reduced funding for Embassy security abroad in the budget. So does that just fly by & never get a mention. GOP & their affiliate Fox tried in vain with Clinton because he liked cigars, they tried with Obama with Ayres & Wright & the Birther crap all of which fell flat on its face.
Then thought Palin would have mass appeal, only to find as a mass turn off. She destroyed Mcain's candidacy who on the whole was a decent guy. Then came Romney, a sock puppet for big business and they wonder why the Bible, Guns and the Flag don't work any more for them.

Even more, the Obama golf schedule is not announced in advance, so a cancellation is irrelevant.

Of course, one might assume that he is playing every day, so not playing is a major event.

Clearly, the attack on the consulate was by an angry mob of Christians from Georgia protesting Obama's Muslim religion.

And for all their efforts they get a well deserved 25 percent approval rating!! 75 percent of the country gets it. The other 25 percent are on these topix threads.
