Gump's vote for free stuff and Obama...

"Ohio - 18 electoral votes - Obama won Ohio by 166,272 votes. Obama won Cuyahoga County with 69% of the vote (Cuyahoga contains Cleveland) by 256,613 votes. In Cleveland, a whopping 69% of residents are functionally illiterate. That double 69% is just a coincidence."

some right-wing-media loving wingnut trying to tell me that i should be using different sources is pure BS.
Your sources should at least not make you a laughing stock when you quote them saying things like Deen was a Republican.

But,hey, continue to use them and others will continue to mock you and your source.

Floundering GOP Senate Candidate Turns To Republican PR (aka Fox News) For Help
The race to fill John Kerry’s senate seat in Massachusetts has never been much of contest. Democrat Ed Markey has led Republican Gabriel Gomez from the start and in the few days left before next Tuesday’s election, he has expanded to his lead to up to 20 points in some polls. But that hasn’t stopped Fox News from brazenly trying to manipulate the outcome by juicing their coverage of the race in favor of Gomez.
Having concluded that their efforts to boost the Gomez candidacy with phony polling analysis and swipes at Markey, Fox News is ramping up their game in a last ditch attempt to put their man in the senate. Tomorrow, on Fox News Sunday, they will feature an interview with Gomez, just two days before the election. That’s a pretty generous donation of valuable air time on a nationally televised program. Any candidate would be thrilled to get that much free publicity.
However, Ed Markey isn’t so fortunate. The “fair and balanced” folks at Fox will only be hosting Gomez at this critical juncture in the campaign. In fact, Markey has not been on Fox at any time during this campaign, while Gomez has been featured multiple times. And Fox always allows Gomez to advertise his web site and plead for donations.
The booking of Gomez on Fox News Sunday is just another example of how Fox has established itself as the PR agency for the Republican Party. There is no more reliable ally for GOP candidates, particularly when they are desperate and appear to be trailing badly. And even when the candidate isn’t available, the Fox anchors and pundits are there to lavish praise on them and to smear their Democratic opponents. It’s a valuable service/scam for which the candidate doesn’t have to shell out a single penny.

part IV

"Michigan - 16 electoral votes - Obama won Michigan by 449,313 votes. Obama won Wayne County, which has Detroit, by 382,032 votes. Detroit has an adult functional illiteracy rate of 47%. We could add in Flint, Michigan, which has similar voting results and not quite as bad illiteracy rates to flip this state."

part V

"Wisconsin - 10 electoral votes - Obama won Wisconsin by 213,019 votes total. Obama won Milwaukee Co with 67% of the vote by roughly 167,500 votes. One in six Milwaukee residents are functionally illiterate. Not enough to swing the state, but as states move from safe to lean to toss up, money gets spent there. Big domino impact."

Why some will never surrender their firearms...

"peterike said...
The Leftist coalition is of course made up of the illiterate on the bottom. But it also includes the intelligent deluded at the top, the victims of a lifetime of Cultural Marxist conditioning, those people who really, really believe there are no differences among races or genders. They really, really believe it.

These same people have their heads stuffed full of Zinn-i-fied lies about history, PC nonsense in the guise of science, and an utter inability to think critically about the received wisdom they come across, which is pumped into their heads 24x7.

It is a spectacularly successful coalition, because it combines elite super wealth with upper middle class wealth and status seeking (this is the class that produces and guards the narrative), along with an ever growing army of idiot proles who twitch when their strings are pulled.

Face it, the Left has won: lock, stock and eventually outlawed barrel. Only a massive crisis and a descent into chaos could -- probably wouldn't, but could -- change things."

his gripe? so tell us who that is. tell us about how he's one of the preeminent economists of our time. tell us how he helped write the book on supply side economics. and then tell us how he left the Party because of the fiscal irresponsibility of the Bush admin.

Five years ago, our national debt was 70.3% of GDP. Today, it’s 107%. That’s a 52% increase, mostly under Obama. And it is still growing!

Kruger is a Nobel Price Economist than he got a prediction terribly wrong and now has no more authority than the next one.

This person is a self described anti-Republican.

This info shows why-

The guy's main gripe is it causes the CBO more work and he doesn't like the Lauffer curve being calculated.

Obamacare and the private practice Doctor...

no more?

"The left can eliminate them now and make them (physicians) dependent on hospitals for maintaining their earnings. Their quasi-small business owner traits will be traded in for well paid employees of a company, and one that is most likely part of a large corporation through the M&A activity in health care. It took forty-five years, but the progressive steamroller rolls on."
