Obama's America

2016 Obama’s America

I went to see this film over the weekend.  It’s an excellent film and the theater was probably 70% filled.  Dinesh D'Souza has done an excellent job laying out the story of Barack Obama.  He treats Obama with respect, but tells us many troubling aspects of his rise to power and more importantly what makes him tick.  It also begs the question what would a second term of Obama be like when he has “more flexibility.”
I think what is more even more important is the proof of the strong turnout you can expect from Republicans this November.   The movie looks to come in third for this weekend behind The Expendables and the Bourne Legacy. 

Washington Post-ABC News poll

Washington Post-ABC News Poll from August 22-25 has Romney up by one over Obama.  However looking at the demographics you see they interviewed 31 percent Democrats, 22 percent Republicans, and 39 percent independents.  Another close poll with oversampled Democrats. 

Being Kind is better than being clever

One of the more heart-warming stories to zoom around the Internet lately involves a young man, his dying grandmother, and a bowl of clam chowder from Panera Bread. It's a little story that offers big lessons about service, brands, and the human side of business — a story that underscores why efficiency should never come at the expense of humanity.

Romney has big lead with Married Women

According to a new Washington Post/ABC’s new survey, married women are strongly backing Mitt Romney, 55%-40%, over Barack Obama.

Compare that with 2008 exit polls when Obama won married women with children, 51%-47%, while McCain won married women with no kids 53%-44%.  Romney's 15% margin soundly beats both numbers.

Overall, Obama's current lead among all women (49%-43%) is thanks to his huge lead with unmarried women, 57%-32%.  Romney has a bigger lead among men than Obama does among women.  So when will the press start covering the real gender gap?

Republican women for Obama—Really?

The Obama campaign is trying to perpetrate the same deception. It has just released a video called Republican Women ForObama features four or five women who claim to be Republicans, or to have been Republicans until recently.  The problem is we know at least one isn’t a Republican.  Among her “likes” on her Facebook page Denver Young Democrats, Obamacare, Michelle Obama, Veterans for Obama, I love it when I wake up in the morning and Obama is President, the Democratic Party, etc.  A second woman in the commercial is her mother with similar Facebook leanings. 

Obama’s Medicare Lies
President Obama said during his weekly radio address today that he wanted to share “some actual facts” about “a lot of accusations and misinformation flying around” about Medicare.  The problem is his  actual facts are lies.

New Obama Medicare Ad

 What do the Democrats do when the Medicare issue goes against them?  That’s easy, they lie.  Their latest ad is packed with lies from the beginning to the end. 

How much stimulus do we need?

President Obama and the Democrats keep talking about another stimulus.  It appears to be the only arrow they have left in their quiver.  But we’ve already had an $861 billion stimulus in 2009, deficit spending to the tune of over $5.5 trillion from 2009 til today and the fed has done a QE1 and a QE2 (During QE1, the Fed purchased $175 billion of agency debt securities and $1.25 trillion of mortgage-backed securities in addition to purchases of Treasuries while QE2 the FOMC decided to expand its balance sheet by $600 billion through the purchase of Treasury securities.), but both investors and economists agree: They don't want QE3.

It’s time for a change.  

Liberal Fascism

The latest news from Argentina has Argentine President Cristina Fernandez's popularity sinking to 30 percent in August.  What caught my eye was the fact that she is the head of the Peronist party which has long be considered to be a fascist party.  At the same time there is no doubt that Fernandez is a leftist.  It appears all those leftists who claim fascism is a party of the right don’t have their facts correct.
