LMAO looking at the reports on the Portland mall shooter, Jacob Roberts. All the leftist phags on here immediately started talking about "rightwing nuts" etc et al. Turns out he's a drunken & doped-up, tattooed & pierced, un-educated left wing mixed-race mutt.

Senior Republican campaign operatives who gathered over beer last week in Alexandria for a post-election briefing were taken aback by what they were told. A nonpartisan research firm presented data showing that President Obama had far outperformed Mitt Romney in managing the largest single expenditure of the campaign: television advertising.

Romney’s spending decisions on advertising look like “campaign malpractice,” said one person who had reviewed the newly circulated data.

Obama and his allies spent less on advertising than Romney and his allies but got far more — in the number of ads broadcast, in visibility in key markets and in targeting critical demographic groups, such as the working class and younger voters in swing states. As the presidential race entered its final, furious phase, for example, millions of college football fans tuning in to televised games saw repeated ads for Obama but relatively few from the Romney campaign.

All told, from June through Election Day, the Obama campaign and its allies aired about 50,000 more ads than Romney and his allies, according to the research firm’s data.

“The Obama guys put more lead on the target and were buying their bullets cheaper,” said an attendee at the briefing, Will Feltus, a senior vice president at National Media, the firm that represented Romney in 2008 and President George W. Bush in his 2004 reelection effort.

That contrast is among a series of revelations creating a stir in recent days as GOP consultants conduct postmortem meetings to review what went wrong in Romney’s surprisingly lopsided loss. To some Republicans, the ad-buying strategy reflected other problems with the campaign, including an insular nature that left it closed to advice from the outside. Romney campaign officials rejected the criticism.

Another lying sack of sh*t Republican. Legislating their future election by taking money from unions^& weakening them.
Republicans wonder why they lost in 2012. Outside of their feable minded base, they are recognized as a bunch of liars & cheats who spend time & tax money insuring their re-election through schemes like weakening the union, gerrymandering, and voter suppression.

Way to go Michigan. You are to be applauded. You offer the folks the opportunity to be a union member or not. For "real dumb" this is a bummer, he has to make a decision, he prefers government make all his decisions.

US Republican senator and Tea Party champion Jim DeMint is resigning to lead a conservative think tank.

His office said the South Carolina politician would become president of the Heritage Foundation next month.

The 61-year-old Republican was first elected to the Senate in 2004 and won a second term in 2010.

South Carolina's Republican Governor, Nikki Haley, will appoint his successor, who will serve until a 2014 special election.

You're nuts if you think that Michigan union members will let Republican fat-cats destroy the middle class without a fight. This is just another example of how out of touch right wing morons are with working class America. The Koch brother's stooges will pay for this.

Right to work laws allow non-union workers to steal benefits attained by dues paying members. As any good rightwinger will tell you, violence against thieves is necessary to protect your property.
Right to Work keeps the Unions in Check too instead of the national unions trying keep wages low just in hopes the companies will hire more people which is good for a unions position which translates into more union dues & revenue for the National Unions in non Right to Work States. Where in a Right to Work state if the union trys to keep wages low people can quit paying dues for poor representation.

UAW in Michigan has destroyed the Middle Class especially in Michigan and the only reason for lower wages or Tier 2 pay scale is to allow Chrysler, Ford, & GM the ability to higher more workers which translates in more union dues and there again the National UAW is & was only looking at their position economically not the Middle Class, Right to Work for Michigan is the best thing for the people of Michigan.

Kennedy was a low life who wanted a little strange stuff. Drunk he drove off the road, into water and ran like a coward, making no attempt to get the young lady out of the car. He had to run, meet with others, to get his story straight. Kennedy, a real coward, you and he have much in common.
