Tweeting along … and hk2′s open thread

Romney’s economic plan gets impressive boosters:

Well, well … Eric Holder!

Uh, with friends like you, Ms. Laura:

… who cares what YOU think!

Good Lord …

Strange … but there’s probably a good explanation:

Important for Internet Explorer users, from The Financial Times:

Stephen Hayes makes his living writing and talking politics (on Bret Baier’s Special Report, nearly every day), but he has a big heart, and so do the people he demands you check out:

  • http://www.projectweavers.com/ Matthew J. Weaver

    Jobless claims were 382,000 last week and, as usual, the Labor Department, revised upward the previous week by 3,000. Thus, the four week running have has jobless claims rising 2,000, the highest since June and continuing the non-stop historic high umemployment under the Obama administration. This alone should doom Obama’s re-election.

    One thing that the Romney camp could benefit from is pointing out that Obama and the so-called media spent more time talking about him than those murdered Americans.

    Who’s playing politics with this situation? Obama and the media. They still think we’re too stupid to notice.

    Many former Obama supporters are fed up. Those of us that warned he would be a disaster were ignored. His disparaging of certain groups of Americans as bitter clingers. Hillary in real code speak – a real TV round table by Obama supporting media discussing if a woman is a bitch shouldn’t we call her one?

    Mitt should point out his lack of compassion and failure to point out that there was no Oval Office moment where Obama reassured the American people and laid out a strategy for protecting our civilians or government employees abroad.

    Those coalitions are enough to make sure he’s not re- elected..

    Mitt Romney as the evil rich guy ain’t working, After all the Obama’s take vacations in locations that costs tens of thousands of dollars.

    Obama used an Official Presidential plane to fly his wife to a “date”.

    I remember the Obama’s saying that we should not take vacations in this bad economy. I guess Martha’s Vineyard hanging out with the super rich, to the tune of tens of thousands, doesn’t count.

    I don’t think when it comes to swanning around as a rich person either of the Obama’s has a leg to stand on.

    Romney needs to point this out when Obama and his bought and paid for media bring up the “he’s rich” meme.

    How’s this for a battlefield complication in Afghanistan. A British soldier caught up in the base attack last weekend went into labor and delivered a baby boy. Pardon me, but even five week’s premature, what was a pregnant soldier doing on the front lines?! Is the British military this stretched?

    Carney’s response to the questions about Obama’s redistribution comments was that the Romney campaign was desperate so they were digging up something Obama said a long time ago to change the subject. I suppose it never occurred to Carney that the Obama campaign dug up something Romney said back in May to distract people from the responsibility Obama neglects to assume for the deaths of 4 Americans in Libya.

    • http://www.theindependentview.com/ Matthew J. Weaver

      In this tit-for-tat Romney comes out the big winner.

  • HObama HObamanana

    It always bothers me during a press “briefing” when a reporter asks a question to Carney that he is uncomfortable answering he will say something like If you are asking (fill in the talking point) then yes Obama (emphasize the talking point). Just once I’d like to see a reporter respond to such deflections by saying that he probably didn’t understand the question so he will repeat it speaking very slowly or with a Chris Tucker like question: Do you understand the words that are coming out of my mouth?

    It certainly appears as if the truth coming out tonight demonstrates that, at a minimum, the Department of Homeland Security was well aware of a threat to the Cairo Embassy. And it would seem reasonable to assume that since the leader of the Cairo demonstrations is the brother of the head of Al Qaeda and he admitted that he had not even seen the video then the video is not the impetus for the demonstrations.

    • http://www.theindependentview.com/ Matthew J. Weaver

      Yes, this is much as Larry has commented on when he called Susan Rice a liar earlier this week. The Obama administration is full of incompetence from Obama on down to think that they can do nothing, lie about it, and think no one will notice or care. In this case, four people died.

      • TeakWoodKite

        I was just reflecting on when Susan Rice was nominated for her current position and why she was the only one out doing the “pretzel logic” dance on the Sunday Obama propaganda shows.
        When she was nominated, it became clear that she was the face of the White House policy shop and it was an end run around the State Dept. So much so that Hillary Clinton was not the one Rice would answer to. It was rather ugly and a sign of things to come.
        People forget Obama’s fiasco in Honduras, openly suppoting the over through of a democratically elected government, contrary to the SCOTUS of Honduras…even then Hillary was the last to find out about it….I wouldn’t be surprised to learn that it was Susan Rice who gave her the news that she had been publically PUNKED by her boss and had to support a position that was contrary to international law and the US Constitution.

    Fox News has obtained a three-page intelligence report showing that two days before the deadly attack on the U.S. Consulate in Libya, a statement incited “sons of Egypt” to pressure America to release the so-called blind sheikh “even if it requires burning the embassy down with everyone in it.”

    The web statement, apparently posted on Sept. 9, was in reference to the embassy in Egypt. It preceded a throng of demonstrators breaching the U.S. Embassy wall in Cairo, supposedly in protest over an anti-Islam film. Obama administration officials claim that attackers in Libya then took their cue from Cairo and seized the opportunity to attack the consulate in Benghazi.

    Though the administration’s version of events is still evolving, the three-page Department of Homeland Security intelligence report further highlights potential threats that were being picked up before last week’s attack.

    I told a friend in NYC I was voting for RR and I’d voted for McCain. She said, “wow, you’re a conservative!” I said no, I’m a liberal.

    I’m an HIV/AIDS activist in NY. When I was in college in the
    mid-70s, NYC went virtually bankrupt and was put into receivership under the Municipal Assistance Corporation (MAC). MAC successfully avoided a fiscal catastrophe in the nation’s largest city. Several years later, AIDS hit NYC.

    How would a fiscally crippled NYC have coped with AIDS? if MAC had not averted bankruptcy, the city would be like Death In Venice to the 100th power. Today, entitlements are a big part of NY’s HIV containment strategy: get people tested, provide primary care and medication to HIV+ people, regardless of ability to pay, to reduce viral loads – an HIV+ person in primary care is far less likely to infect others. Fact: A bankrupt NYC could not do this. So multiply AIDS death, suffering and social destabilization by the bankruptcy factor – the nightmare we experienced would look like Shangri-la compared to AIDS in a bankrupt New York.

    I see Romney-Ryan doing for the U.S. what MAC did for NYC.

    • Hokma

      Exceptional analysis.

      A sound and growing economy can easily afford to be a safety net as well as a healer.

      From the mid-1980s to the mid 1990s I knew three men who succumbed to HIV/AIDS. I never saw 3 people suffer so much but do it with so much strength and courage.

      I don’t see much about it anymore so I assume what they developed over the years has been effective in combating and controlling it.

      Yes, there is a faction that seems bent on helping Obama win re-election because Romney is Mormon and not, in their eyes, conservative enough. Some think that him being a former governor of Massachusetts is immediately disqualifying. A shame. If Romney loses these conservatives will have only themselves to blame.

    Concerning your tweets…..

    It really doesn’t matter how many experts agree with Romney’s plan. It does matter whether the American people agree with it. And that’s the rub. Obama has been busy defining Romney while Mitt is playing it safe. And Laura Ingram is right. Romney needs to explain his position in a way that ordinary people understand. Saying that there is a fundamental difference doesn’t explain very much and people already know there is a fundamental difference between the candidates and the parties. What is missing is WHY citizens should chose Romney’s fundamental difference.

    Microsoft has screwed up big time. There is a huge security leak they found in Internet Explorer 9 but they haven’t fixed it. They claim that IE 10 doesn’t have the problem but it is in developmental stages. The reason Windows is more prone to attack than Mac is because more people use it so the folks creating all the nasty viruses, worms and other bad stuff have concentrated on it. Any computer operating system can be hacked. And I’m sure Google is not trying to push people into using their Chrome browser at all. Nope.

    Romney’s campaign is in debt because they borrowed from the general election funds when they ran low on primary funds. No great big deal.

  • Hokma

    If I were Romney I would blinders on and launch into his lines in the sand comments about the Middle East and about the economy.

    Even among the 47% he spoke about most do not want to be there and want a job – a good paying job – a chance at a business. They want to be self-reliant and not depend on the government for anything.

    Obama created this 47% – he peddles his snake oil to them – and cares less about their plight and only ares about their vote.

    And let these past 4 years be a lesson that you cannot take a lightweight state senator who votes present with no management experience at all and expect him to handle the office of President.

  • http://www.theindependentview.com/ Matthew J. Weaver

    Today almosts seems like the day after a big party. Anti-climatic.

    1. The Mother Jones gotcha tapes turn out to be selectively edited and for all of the media hysteria, actually helped Romney.

    2. The media now “discovers” Obama’s lifelong Marxist and Socialist beliefs that we here at NoQuarterUSA have been writing about since 2008. Wonder what they’ll next make of his Socialist Party and New Party endorsements? His work with Farrakhan? And, wow, maybe they’ll even “discover” his ties to anti-American terrorism and hate of William Ayers and Rev. Jeremiah Wright, both personal friends of Obama for around 20 years.

    3. The media seems a bit confused about the Middle East. They don’t want to admit being lied to by Obama and his administration but what else do they call it?

    By the way, why was our UN ambassador speading on the Middle East instead of Hillary Clinton. What happened to Hillary?

    • MG6

      I think she wants no part of it. Rice is going to replace her which I am sure Sen Kerry is not happy.

    • Hokma

      What I saw was a very upset Hillary Clinton who thought she would wind down her SoS tenure on a positive note and then all hell broke loose. She knows this was on her watch and will be the lasting memory of her tenure.

      I also think there is more to this that we do not know that concerns internal decisions that maybe were beyond her control.

      And she know that with this event her chances of a run in 4 years just got knocked down because she did not answer the 3 AM phone call well.

      • HObama HObamanana

        Concerning your second paragraph, I think you are on to something. I base this on the sudden attempt on the part of Democrats to blame this on the fiscally responsible Republicans for cutting Embassy funding. What is missing from this picture, as it always is, is who is the dude that signed these measures into law? I think his name begins with an O or something like that.

        • Hokma

          So what if you cut embassy funding, why should that be an excuse for not having proper security for one or three or four embassies? This sounds like one of those idiot comments that usually comes out of Nancy Pelotes mouth.

          • HObama HObamanana

            From The Hill:

            “This is a disturbing example of the Republicans’ meat-ax approach to cutting every aspect of the government, no matter how essential,” said Senate Democratic Policy Committee Chairman Charles Schumer (N.Y.) in a statement to The Hill.

            “When House Republicans protect budget-busting tax breaks for millionaires first, and slash embassy security, they reveal that their tough talk on national security is really just hollow words,” said Jesse Ferguson, a spokesman for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee.

            • Hokma

              ROTFL!!!

              Great. Chuckie Cheese Schumer – the other useful village idiot.

        • Hokma

          Let’s just say that I will be the first on line to buy her book when it comes out. Revenge is best when served in a best seller..

    • HObama HObamanana

      Pardon my pessimism, but I just checked the ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, FOX and Politico websites and NONE of them are headlining that the tapes were selectively edited or missing the whole conversation. Some prominent GOP politicians (Martinez for one) are distancing themselves from how the Democrats define what Mitt said which implies that that is how they interpret what he said. Except FOX, I don’t see mention of the Redistribution Obama comments. Perhaps I am not looking very hard.

      If we had a real media they would be hitting the Obama Administration very hard concerning the ME and demanding answers for why 4 Americans were not provided adequate security when it was widely known that there were threats, bad people had bad weapons and there had been previous attacks recently. But we don’t have a real media. We have a robust blogosphere and that’s about it.

      I can’t speak for why Hillary was not speaking about the ME. I can guess that she didn’t want to go on national television and lie her ass off. Again.

      • Dissentispatriotic

        Maybe she refused because she knew the fault lay with O and she wasn’t going to dig his scrawny a$$ out of another hole. I’m quite sure the deaths of those four people have devastated her. Barry? Could care less.

        • HObama HObamanana

          I believe that she was quite shaken by the deaths. Obama was so concerned that he jetted off to another fundraiser after a 1 1/2 minute statement someone else wrote for him.
