ObamaCare all or nothing

As I speculated might happen in a comment to an earlier post, it appears the SCOTUS is not interested is picking through the 2700 pages of Obamacare to see what might be saved. According to comments reported in the LA Times Kennedy and the 4 conservative judges have indicated that they don’t think it...

Replying to Cal reminded me of this…

In his reply to the post about the killings in Afghanistan Cal decided to present the notion that liberal are more supportive of our troops than conservatives. A pointless argument. In my opinion, individual liberals are as likely as individual conservatives to support our troops. However, liberal politicians and liberal institutions and activist groups...

I was at dinner tonight. The day bartender was coming off duty when we over heard a discussion of the pros and cons of the various candidates for the Republican nomination. He rolled his eyes and in disgust said “politics”. I told him that I followed politics closely and we ended up in an...

Some interesting details ABC left out about Newt’s 2nd marriage…

The folks at Legal Insurrection have posted some details about the history of Newt’s 2nd marriage. It’s worth a read but a couple of bullet points: 1) There was a signed and notarized separation agreement from 1987 which was never filed with the state, included as part of the 1999 divorce filing. 2) She...

There is a clear change in the weekly cycle of Obama’s daily approval numbers

So in a prior post I mentioned that Obama’s Gallup daily approval numbers had shifted and that I expected them to come down and eventually they did. The polling did not return to its normal pattern. Once again Obama’s numbers crossed briefly this time they did not immediately return to their normal Friday gap...

The last two weeks have shown a shift in Obama’s daily Gallup poll

I’ve mentioned elsewhere that I have been paying special attention to the daily Gallup presidential approval poll. For the last few months it has been shifting in a weekly oscillation that has been very predictable. Generally it peaks on Tuesday and collapses by Friday. One reliable marker is that for weeks, Obama’s disapproval rating...

Voice based stress detector says Cain is truthful

This is a type of technology that I tend to find fascinating, but I am unsure of its reliability. Apparently is it used regularly by a number of police and sheriffs departments across the country. For what it’s worth it measures Cain’s statement as truthful and Bialek’s as untruthful. More and more I being...

Thoughts on the attack on Cain

November 8, 2011
By

At this point I do not believe that any of the accusations of sexual harassment, sexual misconduct, or sexual assault on Herman Cain are credible. They may be true, and actual evidence may emerge which grants credibility to his various accusers, but at this point, in my opinion, all accusations fall far short of...

Cain on 9-9-9 and 9-0-9

Mr Cain went to Detroit to give a 20 minute speech in which he further explains his 9-9-9 plan and rebuts the various attacks upon it. Cain is very presidential in this address, authentic, and inspirational. I know every argument against this man’s candidacy. The hill he must climb is very real. I’ve said...

Obama losing hispanics…

There is a new Quinnipiac poll that has a lot of bad news for Obama. Perhaps most ominous is that it shows Obama’s approval rating is underwater 50%-45% with hispanic voters. He carried this group by about 67% to 31% in 2008. This represents a 22% swing against the ONE. So much for him...

Obama and the young

September 7, 2011

For some time I have related anecdotal data that suggests that Obama has been losing the youth vote. Now it is starting to show up in the polling. This poll shows that he has already lost substantial ground with the youth vote: “These days, just 41 percent of 18-to-29 year olds approve of Obama’s...

The debt “deal” – and where to go from here

August 2, 2011

I would have commented earlier, but am on the road and only checked in this afternoon. Yes this is a bad deal. It’s a bad deal from a spending perspective. It’s a bad deal from a taxing perspective. It’s a bad deal from a debt perspective. It’s a bad deal from any perspective you’d...

So in this video we see a former liberal Obama voter who has awakened. All you trolls who still want to believe that Obama has the magic, need to realize when he loses voters like her – he’s over. Period. Not only did he lose her vote, she is unlikely to ever vote for...

A belated introduction…

While I’ve been commenting here for a while, I thought that it would be good to tell you a bit about me. I’m in my very late 50s. Widowed. I was born in the mid-west and moved to the northeast for work three decades ago. This means that I remain a tourist. In New...

http://www.wnd.com/index.php?fa=PAGE.view&pageId=264897 Hi Folks Poli has honored me with the opportunity to post here. I will do my best to ensure that he does not regret that decision. Although I studied Constitutional history in college with a massive number of pre-law students, I don’t know if this kind of reconsideration of a case is unprecedented....
