Among some Paul Ryan backers,
disappointment at Romney
campaign trajectory

Wasshington Post, by Felicia Sonmez and David A. Fahrenthold

Original Article

Posted By:tisHimself, 9/25/2012 11:19:45 AM

Conservatives had hoped that Mitt Romney’s choice of House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan (Wis.) as his running mate would make Romney act more like Ryan — bold, specific, confident. Instead, in the six weeks since Ryan became the GOP vice presidential nominee — and particularly in the three weeks since the Republican National Convention — there has been mounting concern among Republicans that the pick has made Ryan look more like Romney — vague, cautious and limited to preset talking points.

I am always amazed at the solicitous nature of liberal pubs like the Post when they worry about how Republican campaigns are faring. S/
You don't suppose their concern is really just an excuse to push the agreed-upon narrative that Romney/Ryan can't possibly win against Obama/Biden, do you?

Trucker Observation: Romney's got balance. Media whores have fallen and can't get up. After the elections Conservatives will practice new entertainment without the alphabets, without Hollywood and without Obama and his Democrats.

Walker said that, among other places, on Charlie Sykes ( another obvious leftist Obamaphile) last last week, reiterated in the Milwaukee Journal. Sykes has it linked. Journal article was posted last week by some brave soul.

But again, this is not a forum for discussion, it is a pep rally among those applauding as the Romney bus slowly rolls off a cliff.

To paraphrase an old saw. 'Tell me who your friends (fans) are and I'll tell you a lot about yourself'. W/fans like these, Romney hardly needs enemies. But lets not belabour the negative, since it's Romney in a landslide, er...isn't it? Fact is, whatever dynamism exists in his campaign emenates from the likes of Ryan, Walker and TP types, a simple home truth; in contrast to the establishment gang, those humourless, insecure and timid drones surrounding Romney. Upon reflection, I'll bet that Dean Swift had his mind's eye on threads like these when he created Gulliver's Yahoos.

If there were an alternate universe where OP gets to pick the nominee, I suspect I would find it a congenial place. Since I live in a universe where my choices are Barack Obama and Mitt Romney, my vote goes to Mitt. None of which should preclude anyone from offering their candid assessment of current events. Ad hominem attacks on fellow L-Dotters are unbecoming.

In the summer of 2008, as the worst financial crisis since the Great Depression was unfolding, Jeb Bush, Florida’s former governor and brother of then President George W. Bush, traveled to Mexico to ask Mexican telecom mogul Carlos Slim Helú to rescue Lehman Brothers, The New York Times reported. In a front page article on Monday, The Times revealed that within a year of ending his term as Florida’s governor, Bush had signed on as consultant to Lehman Brothers, where he was enlisted to reach out to Carlos Slim in a plan code-named Project Verde (Green Project). Slim, says the Times,

"There´s a high-school graduate in this race, okay?" said Perdue, referring to his opponent, former Georgia Secretary of State Karen Handel. "I´m sorry, these issues are so much broader, so complex.

Does anyone really believe Ted Cruz, Rand Paul, or Chris Christie can contend against Hillary Clinton? At least Jeb, the establishment’s establishmentarian, would put up a fight. The GOP may have to return to the Bush leagues. Here’s why. In presidential nominating contests, the Republican establishment has always won out—from the first Bush, to the tried but tired Dole, to W., then McCain, and most recently Romney, who nonetheless had to labor mightily to emerge from the weakest field of candidates in either party, ever.

An unholy alliance between the Tea Party and the teachers’ unions threatens to derail the most promising education reform in decades. Like Rocky in the early rounds, the new Common Core math and reading standards are being pummeled left and right. From the left: Education icon Diane Ravitch says the Common Core represents a “utilitarian view of education” that is too focused on testing, data, and accountability. From the right, “ObamaCore” is denounced as federal intrusion. Heritage Foundation education fellow Lindsey Burke calls it “an effort to impose a uniform, standardized curriculum across the country.” From the further right, the always

On the evening of Good Friday, a man on the run from a death sentence wakes up in a dark forest, lost, terrified and besieged by wild animals. He spends an infernal Easter week hiking through a dismal cave, climbing up a grueling mountain, and taking what you might call the long way home. It all works out for him, though. The traveler returns from his ordeal a better man, determined to help others learn from his experience. He writes a book about his to-hell-and-back trek, and it´s an instant best-seller, making him beloved and famous.

Want to know whether Jeb Bush will run for president? Don’t listen to the learned pundits pouring over Electoral College maps and crunching poll numbers, weighing the former Florida governor’s chances against the rest of the putative 2016 Republican field. Put aside for a moment, the very real questions about his immigration stance and whether he’s too much of an Establishment guy in a Tea Party world. Electability matters, of course, but if you want to get Jeb, it’s the last name that counts, and the family history you should consult for clues as to whether he will seek to join

With jobs and the economy a given, Republicans are working to turn the 2014 elections into an argument over the Affordable Care Act. And that message could be helped by a high-profile Senate race in Kansas against the very woman who oversaw the law´s disastrous rollout. Some Democrats are asking outgoing Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius to challenge her home state senator, Republican Pat Roberts, in the fall, the The New York Times reported Wednesday. Nominating Sebelius, a potentially serious contender in the state, would force national Republicans to spend money in Kansas, pulling away funds that could help them

The Republican Party faces a long-term challenge in presidential elections because it is defining itself as a gloomy enclave, a collection of pessimists who fear what our country is becoming and where it is going. The party’s hope deficit helps explain why there’s a boomlet for Jeb Bush, a man who dares to use the word “love” in a paragraph about illegal immigrants. The flurry doesn’t mean that the former Florida governor is even running for president, let alone that he can win. But Bush is being taken seriously because his approach to politics is so different from what’s on offer

The Obama administration is poised to entertain a flood of new clemency applications from thousands of federal prisoners who were given harsh sentences under mandatory-minimum laws following drug convictions, Attorney General Eric Holder said Monday. Holder said in a short videotaped statement that he wants to shrink the federal prison population by a modest amount while ensuring ´that those who have paid their debts have a chance to become productive citizens.´ At the center of the move is a set of old sentencing rules that punished crack-cocaine offenders with more time behind bars than users or traffickers of powder cocaine.

If Jeb reaches for the nomination, there will be a titanic battle between the party establishment and the Tea Party. Steve Schmidt, McCain’s strategist in 2008, insists that in the end Republicans usually settle on the most electable candidate. To get by, this Bush may be forced to trim his positions, although the cautionary tale of Romney suggests that he would have to tack artfully and carefully for the sake of the general election. Certainly he will have the resources to outlast, discredit, and disqualify his rivals.

Washington - Michelle Obama said "splurging is the key to life" if you regularly eat right and stay active. Her biggest guilty pleasure: French fries. "How would you appreciate vegetables if you never had chocolate?" she asked. "You couldn´t live without a little chocolate, a little French fries." The first lady took questions from children reporters Monday after appearing at the White House Easter Egg Roll. She told the children that if they eat right the majority of the time, then a splurge or snack is not going to hurt them. "I still splurge when I can, but that's why I try to exercise almost every day," she said.

There’s a pattern of falsifying statistics throughout the entire Census Bureau. And anyone who attempts to blow the whistle on the fraud is either retaliated against or ignored, according to two new sources who have experienced the process firsthand. As I’ve been writing for more than six months, the Census Bureau office in Philadelphia uncovered a case of fraud in 2010, did nothing about it and allowed the practice to continue. In that instance, a data collector named Julius Buckmon was faking reports that went into the nation’s all-important jobless tally and consumer-inflation survey. Because the Census Bureau’s surveys are scientific — meaning

Global sea levels have risen by 8 inches (20cm) since 1880 and scientists predict they could rise up to 3ft (98cm) by 2100. But despite the UN’s recent threats of war, famine and extreme weather, such a dramatically different world caused by sea level rise can be hard to imagine. To help picture the future, Martin Vargic, an amateur graphic designer from Slovakia, has created a map depicting the planet with sea levels around 260ft (79m) higher than they are today. He imagines what Earth would look like if the ice sheets surrounding the North and South poles melted, releasing
