Call: Move GOP convention to Salt Lake City, Virginia Beach, home of SEALs

Leave a comment

This is from The Washington Examiner.

Cleveland,Ohio the rectum of America where Dennis “The Menace” Kucinich was mayor.

My question was “Why would anyone in their right mind pick Cleveland?”

Between the thugs hired by George Soros and the Black Lives Matter Thugs it will be worse than Chicago in 1968.

With concerns growing in GOP circles that Cleveland is too friendly to protest mobs that will try to disrupt the Republican National Convention in July should Donald Trump be the nominee, calls are starting to be made to move the event to a safer city such as Salt Lake City, Utah, or Virginia Beach, Va.

A prominent former Reagan advisor and businessman, for example, has sent a plea to Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus warning that riots could spoil the confab and ruin the nominee’s election chances just like the 1968 riots by Vietnam War protesters at the Democratic National Convention helped to doom Vice President Hubert H. Humphrey.

“Riots in Chicago yesterday that shut down a Donald Trump rally confirm our worst fears. Cleveland will be the opportunity for community organizers to combine all their knowledge in an attack on the Republican Party’s national nominating convention,” said Richard J. Bishirjian in a letter to supporters.

“Reince Priebus and the GOP establishment chose Cleveland, Ohio in order to exert control over the convention in Ohio and assure that an establishment candidate is the GOP presidential nominee. Those of us old enough to remember the riots in Chicago in 1968 that destroyed the candidacy of Hubert Humphrey, believe that prudence requires that the Cleveland convention should be moved,” added the former Reagan advisor.

“How about Salt Lake City or Virginia Beach, cities where organized groups can be contained, but not Cleveland that is very well suited for organized riots,” added Bishirjian, currently the president of Colorado-based EDUCourses, which provides online courses.

From the Navy: “Virginia Beach, home to Naval Special Warfare Group 2 and its SEAL Teams 2, 4, 10 and 18. SEAL Team Eighteen, a Reserve unit, and Naval Special Warfare Group 4 are also located at Little Creek. Group 4 is responsible for all of NSW’s special boat teams.”

Trump’s rallies have been plagued with protests, some of which appear planned to disrupt the candidate and draw in TV cameras.

Cleveland faced its own riots last May after a police officer was acquitted of murder. Other cities have been with similar and related protests from groups like “Black Lives Matter.

When the Cleveland clashes occurred, there were call for the GOP to consider moving the convention, among them one from Bishirjian.

Another key Republican advisor said that there are recent calls made to the RNC to move the convention, though that is highly unlikely because it takes over a year to organize one and secure hotels and venues.

“Let the movement grow to move to a safer place,” he told Secrets.

Below is the full letter from Bishirjian:

Subject: Move the GOP Nominating Convention from Cleveland

On May 24, we sent an appeal to Republican National Committee Chairman, Reince Priebus, titled “Move the Republican Convention from Cleveland.”

Riots in Cleveland where the GOP will hold this year’s nominating convention had occurred, and we suggested that we ought not to hold that event in Ohio.

Riots in Chicago yesterday that shut down a Donald Trump rally confirm our worst fears. Cleveland will be the opportunity for community organizers to combine all their knowledge in an attack on the Republican Party’s national nominating convention.

Reince Priebus and the GOP Establishment chose Cleveland, Ohio in order to exert control over the convention in Ohio and assure that an Establishment candidate is the GOP Presidential nominee. Those of us old enough to remember the riots in Chicago in 1968 that destroyed the candidacy of Hubert Humphrey, believe that prudence requires that the Cleveland convention should be moved.

How about Salt Lake City or Virginia Beach, cities where organized groups can be contained, but not Cleveland that is very well suited for organized riots.

Google “Snookered in Seattle” to see what is likely to happen in July in Cleveland. “Occupy Wall Street” and “Black Lives Matter” were designed to unleash the fury of mobs on the GOP national convention.

The Republican National Committee must act as quickly as possible or we will see a repeat of 1968.

Very truly yours,

Richard J. Bishirjian, Ph.D.

Can The Republican Party Kick Donald Trump Out Of The Debates?

Leave a comment

This is from Freedom OutPost.

 RNC Chairman Reince Priebus has lost his damned mind if he ever  had a mind.

If the RNC wants to be rid of Donald Trump this sure is not the way to do it.

Look at his jump in the polls when Megan Kelly had a go at trying to make Trump look bad.

If the RNC keeps up their crap it will assure a Trump Indenendent run and the election of what ever DemocRat that gets the nomination.   

 Billionaire and 2016 presidential candidate Donald Trump makes new headlines every day. But something he said that he wouldn’t do during the first Republican debate could reveal some major problems with the debate system.

Could the GOP ban Trump from its next debate?

The first Republican debate one week ago opened with a question specifically for Trump. Per Bret Baier:

Who is unwilling tonight to pledge your support to the eventual nominee of the Republican Party and pledge not to run an independent campaign against that person? Raise your hand now if you won’t make that pledge tonight.

Trump was the only candidate who said that he might run as an independent if he doesn’t get the GOP nomination. Not only is that a difficult path to take, but also an expensive one. Trump is probably the only candidate running who could afford to launch an independent campaign.

Because Trump said he would not rule out running as an independent candidate, the Republican National Committee (RNC) has now said it could ban Trump from the next debate if he won’t make that pledge.

RNC Chairman Reince Priebus has since directly requested all Republican candidates to pledge that they will not make a third-party run, according to ABC News. Those who do not pledge, might not get an invite to future Republican candidate debates, and would likely be restricted from accessing party data on Republican voters.

If Trump is polling at twice the numbers of his closest challengers and as much as five times the numbers of seven of the top 10 candidates—which he is—then how could the RNC ban him from debates? Can that really be done?

The answer is yes. The RNC, just as the Democratic National Committee (DNC), is considered a private club. They make their own rules. The DNC isn’t holding a single debate until October—something that candidates like Martin O’Malley aren’t happy about. But there’s nothing they can really do.

And that is why a senior Trump campaign official has told ABC News that it is possible that Trump may make that pledge. Though Trump has clarified that statement, saying, “It’s absolutely possible that at some point I would change that,” but, he added, such a change “is not imminent.”

If I’m the nominee, I pledge that I will not run as an independent,” he said.

What you need to know is that the RNC claims it has every right to prevent Trump or anyone else from debating because it is a private club. But—Reality Check—in actuality they are not.

In fact, American taxpayers spent $400 million administering Republican and Democratic primaries in 2012.

That is one of the major problems with the way the party conducts business. On average, only about 9 percent of the voting population vote in national primaries. But 100 percent of taxpayers are on the hook for these so-called private events.

Orphans, Obamacare and Condolences

1 Comment

This is from The Black Sphere.

Will the GOP be able to use the Obamacare SNAFU for

 Political advantage?

Sadly I do not see the establishment Republicans being

able to exploit it.

The RINO’s will be trying to beat then destroy The Tea Party.

Before the invasion of Iraq, Colin Powell warned, “If you break it – you own it.”Orphans

This same china shop principle applies to Obamacare, as well as the broader healthcare system in the United States. It can be little argued that Barack Obama and the Democrat party are in the process of breaking healthcare in this nation.

Whether done so intentionally, as a transition to get to a single payer system, or via incompetence – you be the judge.

For anyone actually paying attention to recent developments, exactly who is at fault for the upheavals should be self evident. But as crazy as this may seem, the actual linking between the “breakers” and the “breaking” must still be made to the average person.

The coupling of issues demonstrating cause and effect must be made in no uncertain terms. This is an unfortunate necessity in low information America.

Even so, rarely in politics has such a ripe opportunity ever existed as does now with the disastrous rollout of Obamacare. The website has been a debacle of gargantuan proportion. Millions of dollars have already been wasted. Soon it will be billions and ultimately trillions.

Insurance premiums are doubling, if not tripling. The same is true with deductibles. The $2500 in average savings promised by Barack Obama has grotesquely mutated into a $7500 increase. Meanwhile, up to sixteen million people are losing their health insurance.

It turns out you can’t keep your insurance. Why? Probably because you didn’t build it.

Regardless, any opportunity to make inroads into an electorate is precious. A chance to shift the future politics of multiple generations is solid gold. That is precisely what is occurring now.

Make no mistake; defining and cataloguing the failures of Obamacare provides the political opportunity of this century. What is most needed now is a comprehensive accounting of the misery.

Going forward, a central focus for Republicans should be voter outreach to the orphans of Obamacare. The orphans are those who’ve been kicked off their insurance and mercilessly thrown out into the harsh cold; upon the rainy, muddy, dead-end street of Obamacare.

These orphans are the people most likely to care because they are directly impacted by big Obamacare.

First, the House Oversight Committee should drag up the insurance executives to Capitol Hill. Once there, the committee should subpoena each insurance company to provide a comprehensive and complete list of names for everyone who was sent a letter canceling their current health insurance policy. This is appropriate oversight and a legitimate function of government.

In the meantime, letters of condolence should be drafted by members of both the House and Senate. Additionally, a letter should be written by the Republican National Committee. All letters should be respectful and heartfelt.

These letters should simply state that Republicans are sorry to hear of the recent loss of your health insurance policy while also gently reminding that Republicans did everything they could to stop the law. Each letter should be as apolitical and sincere as possible. After all, it is to lament a loss.

Using the names and addresses of those orphaned by Obamacare, each congressional member of the GOP should use franking privileges to deliver these letters of condolence to each of their affected constituents. Any people who fall outside the geographic districts of elected republicans should be sent a letter by the RNC.

Every person who loses their insurance and becomes an Obamacare orphan should receive at least one condolence letter. Some people could conceivably receive four letters – one from their representative, two from their senators and one from the RNC.

In the process, it would make the Democrats own it – at least for the people to which it matters most.

Either way, a smart strategy would be to find these people and reach out to them – if for no other reason than to send condolences.

Republicans have an opportunity unlike any in years to communicate our values, own the narrative, and reach the hearts and minds of those abandoned and bruised by Obama and Obamacare.

GOP: Seize the day.

MEDIA MATTERS SIDES WITH RNC TO PROTECT LEFT-WING CNN, NBC

1 Comment

This is from Breitbarts Big Journalism.

Talk about strange bedfellows Media Matters and the RNC.

While Media matters is pretending to side with the RNC they are only in

the CYA mode for CNN,NBC and PMSNBC.

Media Matters wants to help knock off and GOP candidate in 2016.

They also want the Hilda Beast elected in 2016.

 

In a bizarre turn of events, the hard-left Media Matters for America (MMfAhas sided with the Republican National Committee’s call for CNN and NBC to cancel their respective projects surrounding former Secretary of State and potential 2016 presidential candidate Hillary Clinton. Unless these projects are canceled, the RNC will not partner with either network for its primary debates.

In letters sent to both networks, MMfA founder David Brock tried to make it sound as though his opposition is based on journalistic integrity. But a look between the lines reveals Brock’s real motivation, which is to protect the brands of the left-wing CNN and NBC for the coming battle to put Hillary Clinton in the White House.

In both letters, Brock asks the network heads, “How will your network respond to the right-wing noise machine that is already pressuring you to adopt its ideological lens on Clinton?” and “Is your network prepared to respond to criticism that it is not providing equal time to other candidates?”

That reveals a concern that has nothing to do with the high ideals of objective journalism and everything to do with a fear that CNN and NBC are leaving themselves open to legitimate criticism from the political right. And it is just a fact that the more CNN and NBC sully themselves in the minds of the public, the less effective they will be at persuading the public to vote for Hillary Clinton.

For as long as I can remember, but most certainly during the ’08 and ’12 presidential elections, CNN and NBC (as well as offshoot MSNBC) were both invaluable in the wars to destroy the Republican ticket and usher Barack Obama into office.

Brock is apparently concerned that these Hillary projects are a bridge too far in the coming war, and that the damage these projects will do to the reputations of both networks will, in the long term, do more harm than good to Hillary’s chances.

And if past is prologue, CNN and NBC hosting GOP primary debates is a much more effective way to put Clinton in the White House than a Hillary miniseries and documentary.

The left understand that CNN and NBC are at their most effective at winning elections for Democrats when they hide behind a phony shield of objectivity. For good reason, the left is concerned these Hillary projects might weaken that shield.

 

HERE’S WHY THE RNC HAS BEEN SO SILENT ABOUT RAMPANT VOTER FRAUD

Leave a comment

This is from Polti Chicks.

I can’t understand why the RNC agreed to this consent decree.

It is time to take the RNC back from the Establishment republicans.

election_ballot_box_2

Since before November’s election, many of us have been kicking and hollering about the widespread voter fraud reported, but to no avail.

First, we had complaints from voters in at least six states that their intended votes for Mitt Romney on electronic touchscreen voting machines came up as votes for President Barack Obama

In addition to all these reports, True the Vote also documented:

Yet despite all these reports, crickets still seem to be chirping at the Republican National Committee (RNC).

HERE’S WHY…

In the 1982 consent decreethe Republican Party made an agreement effectively barring the RNC from “engag[ing] and assist(ing) in voter fraud prevention unless the RNC obtains the court’s approval in advance.” They basically made an agreement with the Democratic Party NOT to ensure voting integrity and NOT to pursue suspected vote fraud.

The reason for the 1982 consent decree was because during the 1981 New Jersey gubernatorial election,According to The Judicial View:

 “The RNC allegedly created a voter challenge list by mailing sample ballots to individuals in precincts with a high percentage of racial or ethnic minority registered voters and, then, including individuals whose postcards were returned as undeliverable on a list of voters to challenge at the polls. The RNC also allegedly enlisted the help of off-duty sheriffs and police officers to intimidate voters by standing at polling places in minority precincts during voting with National Ballot Security Task Force armbands. Some of the officers allegedly wore firearms in a visible manner.” 

To settle the lawsuit, the RNC and RSC entered into the 1982 consent decree. According to True the Vote, the decree roughly states today:

▪    The RNC may only be sued by the DNC for enforcement issues;

▪    Any activity to fight voter fraud must be submitted to the courts for a 10-day preclearance process (think Section 5 of the Voting Rights Act);

▪    Voter fraud prevention or “Ballot Security” is defined as “any program aimed at combating voter fraud by preventing potential voters from registering to vote or casting a ballot;”

▪    Poll watching is defined as “stationing individuals at polling stations to observe the voting process and report irregularities unrelated to voter fraud to duly-appointed state officials” (Emphasis ours);

▪    The Decree expires December 1, 2017 – with detailed caveats.

True the Vote continues:

“After the initial agreement, the RNC tried multiple attempts to get out of the deal, amid new evidence of fraudulent voting activities and new law. Each time, however, the federal courts denied the request and ceded little room for adjusting the agreement. Though this agreement only applies to the national parties, it effectively squashes any attempt at a coordinated effort for election integrity.”

True the Vote also explains the two glaring issues with this consent decree:

  • First, the decree effectively robs poll watchers (and the ballot stakeholders that put them there) of their most important function: spotting and neutralizing attempted voter fraud. Indeed, poll watchers will mostly make note of procedural errors that could have negative impacts on voters. However, poll watchers also improve overall faith in the system when electors know that ALL of the rules are being enforced.
  • Second, the definition of “Ballot Security” sets an unreasonably high, yet undefined bar for what are acceptable anti-voter fraud operations. If the RNC wanted to execute a plan that prevented non-citizens from registering and voting, the courts would basically tell them to not press their luck. The RNC is effectively jammed: choosing between developing a system that the federal court and the DNC agree would be flawless or spending time and energy on developing issue ideas or get out the vote efforts. Time and money being finite, the RNC picks GOTV over “Ballot Security.”   

Quite frankly, the whole thing is a mess! The Democrats can basically commit voter fraud and get away with it — without the RNC ever stepping in to do anything about it.

However, in a phone interview with Catherine Engelbrecht from True the Vote, she said, “There are some important points that need to be made though — the main one being that the 1982 consent decree only effects actions of the national party, not state or local which is where elections and ballot security should be focused anyway.”-

In other words, the solution to this problem is YOU. The National Voter Registration Act of 1993 in particular, empowers all of us to fight for clean registrations and fair elections in our own communities:

  1. Be sure to support voter ID requirement laws in your state.

LAUGHING AT THE ISSUES: THIS NEW AD ATTACKING BIDEN’S DEBATE PERFORMANCE IS ABSOLUTELY BRUTAL

Leave a comment

This is from The Blaze.

Paul Ryan had a double disadvantage during the debate.

Ryan had to deal with Slow Joe and the moderator Martha Raddatz.

Slow Joe laughed,smirked and interrupted Paul Ryan.

Then DemocRat hack Raddatz would want to move on so Ryan could not answer.

Raddatz kept interrupting Paul Ryan yet she let Slow Joe ramble.

Martha Raddatz made Jim Lehrer  look like a great moderator.

 

Following Thursday night’s vice presidential debate between Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) and Vice President Joe Biden, the Republican Nation Committee released an ad blasting Biden for his numerous outbursts, interruptions, and constant laughing:

And the video isn’t that far off from portraying the debate in its entirety. Biden actually interrupted Rep. Ryan quite a bit. In fact, according to Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus, the vice president interrupted the Wisconsin congressman 82 times.

 

Top 10 liberal race cards

1 Comment

This is from Human Events.

The Obama camp is getting desperate.

They know Obama can not run on his record.

So in desperation they break out the race card.

Liberals are starting to hear the dog-whistles they say conservatives slip into their conversations as racial code words and have discovered an amazing array of such language relating to criticism of President Obama. Be prepared to cut down on your vocabulary after seeing the list of these liberal race cards.

1. Chicago

MSNBC host Chris Matthews put Chicago on the table as a term that conjures up stereotypical images of the inner city. “They keep saying Chicago by the way, have you noticed? They keep saying Chicago. That’s another thing that sends that message—this guy’s helping the poor people in the bad neighborhoods, screwing us in the ‘burbs.” On the panel with Matthews, John Heilemann of New York Magazine, then chirped in, “There’s a lot of black people in Chicago.”

2. Birther jokes

Matthews said that Mitt Romney’s joke that “no one’s ever asked to see my birth certificate” was part of an “endless ethnic attack” on Obama. “That cheap shot … was awful,” Matthews said to Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus. “It is an embarrassment to your party to play that card … you are playing that ethnic card there.”

3. Polling

Leave it to noted political scholar and “30 Rock” TV-star Alec Baldwin to put his finger on opinion polling as a hitherto form of virulent racism. Still using electronic devices after the embarrassing voice-mail rant he once sent to his daughter (where he famously called her a “rude thoughtless pig”), Baldwin recently tweeted, “If Obama Was White, He’d Be Up By 17 Points.”

4. Golf

When Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) joked that Obama was “working to earn a spot on the PGA Tour,” MSNBC host Lawrence O’Donnell knew what was really going on: racism. “Well, we know exactly what he’s trying to do there. He is trying to align to Tiger Woods and surely, the—lifestyle of Tiger Woods with Barack Obama. … these people reach for every single possible racial double entendre they can find in every one of these speeches.”

5. Financial reform

Vice President Joe Biden warned a campaign rally in Danville, Va., which included a large number of minorities, that Romney’s financial reform efforts would essentially re-introduce slavery to the nation. “In the first hundred days he’s going to let the big banks once again write their own rules—unchain Wall Street. They’re going to put y’all back in chains.”

6. Voter ID laws

Republican efforts to rid voter rolls of felons, illegal immigrants, and dead people is really just all about racism, say liberals ranging from MSNBC host Al Sharpton to Attorney General Eric Holder. Sharpton said that voter ID laws were a “deliberate attempt to try to suppress our votes in particularly minority communities that are disproportionately impacted, senior and students,” while Holder likened the laws to the Jim Crow era “poll taxes.”

7. Eric Holder’s contempt charge

Writing in the Huffington Post, Al Sharpton gave a lengthy discourse to a charge that the contempt of Congress charged voted on by the House was similar to New York police’s “stop-and-frisk” policy. “Tattered down and publicly humiliated, AG Holder has been mishandled just like the young Black and Latino men (and women) who are demonized on our streets everyday…”

8. Welfare fraud

Matthews went on this soliloquy that blamed any opposition to social anti-poverty programs to deep-rooted racism. “Nothing is more primitive than to beat the drums of tribal grievance,” Matthews said. “Welfare cheating, food stamp grabbing are all part of the lingo, along with the old calls for law and order and states rights and all the rest. Say what you want, the message is familiar, deeply redolent of the old demagoguery that stirs up the working white people against the black.”

9. Branding analogies

When Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour said, “While I would love for Christie to put a hot poker to Obama’s butt, I thought he did what he was supposed to do,” about New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie’s keynote address at the Republican National Convention, liberal commentators were quick to criticize the remarks, saying Barbour was essentially calling for a branding of the nation’s first black president. Talking Points Memo editor Josh Marshall tweeted, “Archaic klan torture techniques.”

10. Anger references

When Mitt Romney said that President Obama should take his “campaign of division and anger and hate back to Chicago,” MSNBC co-host Toure heard a racial diatribe. “He’s really trying to use racial coding and access some really deep stereotypes about the angry black man. This is part of the playbook against Obama, the ‘otherization,’ he’s not like us. … You are not one of us, you are like the scary black man who we’ve been trained to fear.”

Ryan compares Obama’s record on economy to Jimmy Carter’s

7 Comments

 

This is from The Hill.

Paul Ryan hit the nail on the head the Carter Years will look good.

Barack Milhous Capone Kardashian will go down as the worst President ever.

More businesses have failed and unemployment is steadily raising under Obama.

Before Obama’s term ends he will make the Great Depression look like a bad day.

CHARLOTTE, N.C., — Paul Ryan compared President Obama’s economic record to Jimmy Carter’s on Monday, saying neither president improved people’s lives.

“Every president since the great depression could run on a record saying you are better off than you were four years ago,” Ryan said. “Except for Jimmy Carter and Barack Obama.”

The Republican vice presidential nominee was in Greenville, N.C., only 230 miles from where Democrats are holding their national convention.

He repeatedly looked to tie Obama to the one-term Democratic president, who has become a frequent touchstone for Republicans in this campaign cycle.

Carter will speak to Democratic delegates via satellite on Tuesday, the first day of the convention.

Ryan said in 1980, under the Carter administration, 330,000 businesses filed for bankruptcy, compared to 1.4 million in 2011 “under President Obama’s failed leadership,” and that mortgage delinquencies have ballooned from 77,000 to 3 million over the same time period.

“Simply put, the Jimmy Carter years look like the good old days compared to where we are now,” Ryan said.

But whether he was touting Mitt Romney’s record as a governor, or going through the Romney campaign’s five point economic plan, Ryan continuously returned to the “are you better off message.”

“We’re going to hear a lot of words from Charlotte,” he continued. “We’re not going to hear evidence and facts about how people are better off.”

“The president cannot tell you that you’re better off,” Ryan added. “And if we want to improve things, then how would rehiring the same administration do that? It wouldn’t.”

Republicans are pushing the “better off” message this week as Democrats gather to re-anoint Obama as their nominee.

Obama’s senior surrogates on Monday were pushing the message that Americans are better off, but it was a reactive response to Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley’s (D) fumbling of the question Sunday on “Face the Nation.”

“No,” replied O’Malley, a prominent Obama surrogate, when asked if people were better off today than they were four years ago, “but that’s not the question of this election.”

“Without a doubt, we are not as well off as we were before George Bush brought us the Bush job losses,” O’Malley added.

O’Malley soon backtracked, and Obama deputy campaign manager Stephanie Cutter and Democratic National Committee communications director Brad Woodhouse hit the airwaves Monday to answer the question affirmatively and without caveat.

 

Reince Priebus, the chairman of the Republican National Committee, echoed much of Ryan’s remarks, including the attempts to link Obama’s record with Carter’s.

In town to launch a GOP counteroffensive to the Democratic convention, Priebus noted that Obama surrogates like O’Malley were backtracking on their claims that people in the U.S. were not better off than they were four years ago.

The RNC chairman derisively added that must mean that millions of Americans had suddenly found jobs, and that deficits, poverty and gas prices had all fallen.

“All in the last 24 hours,” Priebus said at the NASCAR Hall of Fame on the site of the Democratic gathering. “Yes, this morning Democrats were in desperate damage control. Interestingly and bizarrely, that we now are better off after four years of Barack Obama.”

Priebus also suggested that this week would prove to be a stark contrast to the Democrats’ euphoric 2008 convention in Denver, and even tried to use Obama’s famous mantra of hope and change against him.

“Today, the thrill and pixie dust of Barack Obama’s presidency is gone,” Priebus said, flanked by Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah.) “Americans feel no hope and have seen change for the worse.”

The timing of O’Malley’s comment couldn’t have been better for Republicans, who on Monday launched an aggressive counter-message based on the “are you better off” question. Priebus said it would be the GOP’s theme all this week.

The debate over whether the nation is better off now than it was four years ago is critical to whether Obama will win another four-year term. Republicans say the answer is clearly a no, and their chief argument is that the nation’s unemployment rate remains above 8 percent while the nation’s debt has climbed to nearly $16 trillion.

Democrats argue Obama inherited a country in free-fall from President George W. Bush, and that he has begun to turn it around over the past four years. Among the points they highlight are Obama’s rescue of the auto industry, his financial reform legislation and the fact that the economy has added jobs every month for nearly two and a half years.

Still, the conflicting response highlights the challenge faced by the Obama campaign as it seeks to tout its record on the economy while also acknowledging continuing concern among voters over the recovery.

That message is further complicated by a 2011 interview in which Obama himself said voters were not better off economically.

“Well, I don’t think they’re better off than they were four years ago,” the president told ABC News last October.

“They’re not better off than they were before Lehman’s collapse, before the financial crisis, before this extraordinary recession that we’re going through,” he continued. “I think that what we’ve seen is that we’ve been able to make steady progress to stabilize the economy, but the unemployment rate is still way too high. And that’s why it’s so critical for us to make sure that we are taking every action we can take to put people back to work.”

Obama and Romney enter the week tied nationally in the polls at 46 percent each, according to the Real Clear Politics average of polls.

 

 

DWS: We Will Carry Obama Into the White House On the Shoulders of the People

This is from Town Hall.

Debbie Wasserman Schultzs is a mental case.

Debbie and the DemocRats are living in a fantasy world.

No drug could make you hallucinate this way.

 

DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz made an appearance at the RNC in Tampa today. While she was there, she stopped by MSNBC to talk about how the people will “carryPresident Obama on their shoulders into the White House.

“We have systematically and steadily been running and setting up the most significant grassroots presidential campaign in history, and we’ll carry the President to the White House on the shoulders of the people of this country.”

 

‘FU** THESE CRAKKKAS’: NEW BLACK PANTHERS SEEMINGLY PLANNING THURSDAY RNC ACTION

6 Comments

 

This is from The Blaze.

I can see these clowns trying to start a riot.

If our Attorney General was worth a damn he would act.

The U. S. Marshall’s would round these thugs up and lock them up.

But sadly we have Eric race baiter Holder as Attorney General.

But on January 20,2013 Holder and Obama will be unemployed.

 

The New Black Panther Party has been in the news frequently over the past year after, among other things, threatening to kill all the “cracker babies” and put their boots on the “necks” of those attending the Republican National Convention.

After an August 22 interview with FloridaWatchdog, where prominent member Michelle Williamsassured that the New Black Panthers had no plans for the Republican National Convention, many breathed a sigh of relief that the event would pass undisturbed.

“We were ordered to stand down by our national chairman during the event of the RNC so there is no ruckus,” she explained.  “We’ve told our members to stand down. No uniforms or anything.”

But now, as the convention begins its second real day, the tone seems to have changed markedly.

A protest is now being openly advertised for Thursday (although with a pre-Isaac poster, so it still displays the wrong date):

New Black Panthers at the Republican National Convention Thursday? | Michelle Williams

(Photo: Facebook/New Black Power Muhammad)

“Ali Black Power Muhammad,” the local chairman who seemingly runs the Tampa-area Twitter feed(many of the posts redirect to his Facebook page and are written in the first person), vented his frustration at the Republican National Convention in a somewhat difficult-to-read Facebook post.

However, one can clearly interpret that he is not pleased with the convention, and is planning on taking action (strong content warning for language):

New Black Panthers at the Republican National Convention Thursday? | Michelle Williams

(Photo: Facebook/Ali Black Power Muhammad)

He also wrote a Facebook post advertising Thursday’s protest in which he “tagged” Michelle Williams– who earlier stated that the New Black Panthers are not planning anything for the convention.

 

People have no control over posts they are tagged in, but there is a strong possibility it was not random.
