If He’s Lost the New Yorker…
Power Line, by John Hinderaker

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 10/6/2012 6:13:02 AM

…then it is hard to imagine who still believes the myth of Barack Obama. Next week’s New Yorker cover:(Snip for graphic)So I guess it’s unanimous. Clint Eastwood was right. But here is what I don’t understand: why isn’t everyone embarrassed to be a liberal? Or, put another way, a Democrat? How is it that some people can witness the latest liberal fiasco–Romney sneaked a crib sheet into the debate! That’s the only way he could remember all those facts! No one could actually know all that stuff!–and say, hey, I don’t mind associating with those people!

Comments:
The New Yorker cover is creating a brushfire in bloggerville. There's a lot of discussion.

The caricature of Romney gives him quite a chin. If you color it in, he looks like Lincoln. I think that's an accident, but subliminally it could have quite a positive effect.

I know Romney was good with his facts at the debate but was he that good? - that he needed notes? Maybe you're right, Liberals and I hope you are!

President Romney combined his law school education with his MBA, and added in his real world experience,
(which we used to expect from our presidential candidates) and smoked barack.
I have to wonder if barack even went to class in law school.
And I have to wonder if barack was chewing khat.

Clint's chair has legs. Obama fit the narrative perfectly at the debate. Maybe now some of the Dims have finally gotten Clint's point.

FTA:" But here is what I don’t understand: why isn’t everyone embarrassed to be a liberal? Or, put another way, a Democrat?" IMHO, two reasons; one, they want to be thought of as reasonable, thoughtful, and caring. Two, if they were to finally admit it would be devastating to realize that one was so wrong for so long.

I have a gut suspicion. I'm wondering if the Obama handlers plan to stage a phony 'hero thing' for the president, who will bravely be rescued from 'whatever.'
.... My 'gut' is rarely wrong.

This cover was a surprise. All evidence that the left is angry with a loser, one of them. Axelrod has so much cleaning and pruning to do that I wonder how he gets any sleep at night.

I am sure poor Obama is getting advice (make that "direction") on how to behave on the next round. Too much prodding Axelrod, and you are going to make him petulent.

The world is watching.

The libbies are desperate. The American People are wise to the Chicago mob, i.e. obama and jarret.

The cover doesn't mean a thing to WE the People. It may give solace to the demorats who are whinnnning these days....

The economy will do obama in -- no matter how he cooks the books.... It's tough out here and WE KNOW it....

This is The New Yorker's clever way of warning Obama that he has to do a better job in the next two debates or he is finished.
Remember, too, that those who write for and edit The New Yorker are some of the smartest wordsmiths on the planet. They knew an empty chair when they saw one.

#2, the answer is yes to the fact that he was that good. As far as ''taking notes'', I noticed he scribbled a few notes when Obama started meandering off topic.

I needed a new wallpaper for my computer and now I have it.

Obama has been busy convincing his base of lo-info voters that CEOs are overpaid leeches who provide no value, and get by on insider conections.

Oops... one of those drones just mopped the floor with him, and sopped up the mess with a media talking head for good measure.

ps. Don't miss the comments in New Yorker article... most are more scathing on Obama's performance than the picture is!

The next debate is supposed to be about Foreign Policy. Jug Ears will point out that he killed Osama bin Biden and he won the Nobel Peace Prize. Every 4 years we are told that this is the most important election in American history and usually it's just hype. But if we lose this one I lose my health care in 2014. So it's plenty important to me. Along with I haven't had a pay raise in 4 years and my house is worth less each year. Speaking of debates I'm expecting Plugs to do much better than expected which will validate Clint Eastwood's observation that Ole Joe is the intellectual leader of the demoncraps.

I'll let you in on a deep, dark secret. Romney had a secret radio transmitter sewn into his Magic Mormon Underwear! That's how he really mopped up the floor with The Slug.

Like any actor zero needs someone to write his lines and is lost without a script. He also is completely dependent on the "star marker" dept - the guys who really ran the "brilliant" campaign in 2008, the publicists, the agents, the trainers, the accountants, business managers, and on and on.

With his actual work record as evidence how could anyone have expected that this man had somehow accumulated any meaningful leadership experience in life before the White House or would bother to apply himself while in the WH?

He was never anything but a reflection.

NOW is the time to stop calling all these big oppressive government promoters, the good name of liberal. They are NOT liberal.
They are authoritarian, indivdual oppressing power mad traitors to the truth.
If every good soul simply stops and rethinks
this could change in a few days. Get over your fear to call them what they ARE.
They ARE socialists, statists, collectivists
reds, commies, anti Constitutioalists, not radicals but reactionaries, fellow travelers
Marxists, dictator crazed, believers in ever
larger cureaucracies, more taxes, more jails
more bureaucratic controls, everything needs to be controlled BY THE STATE. They want to close down the internet because they can't control it. Overcome your own personal fears, and try it out in front of the mirror. Try calling them the names above, pretend like you're Ayn Rand. She called them only what they are. She came from Communist Russia, escaped, really under stood how terrifying dictator like governments are to the destruction of the individual and their natural rights. Shape up.

Looks like all the lefties are leaving Obama. Who knew Obama would be thrown under his own bus.

The lefties knew all those skewed polls were lies, and Obama's poor performance only confirmed what alot of people already knew. Obama lies all the time, and nobody likes a liar. The left know Obama is going to lose, and do not want to be dragged down with him.

The left will sacrifice Obama and abandon him before they will ever admit their style of government is wrong.

November 6 is 'Impeach Obama' day.

Good point, 31st poster, though I suppose we have to go with the common parlance, unfortunately.

As for Bams - my theory is that Clint's stunning performance put a sort of spell on him and that Romney continued this nailing of him to the wall that Clint began, to the point that he could hardly move or speak. A sort of literal metaphor.

Great ideas, #s 26 and 31. Especially like the empty chair on the lawn. Just make sure it's a chair you can do without. I fully expect the spoiled-sports to steal and or destroy. Maybe bring it in at night.

Ramirez's cartoon is even more devastating.

I hope Mitt mentions in the foreign policy debate how many military people we've lost since obit ramped things up in Afghanistan. It seems that's the only way the news will get out there. obit can brag that he got Osama, and it's still not a fact that "he" got him, but will he take responsibility for the service members who've lost their lives. He doesn't even acknowledge the loss or the sacrifice unless it helps him. And, Mitt should throw in how he, Mitt, not obama, is fighting for military absentee voting extensions in several states.

Glad to know I wasn't the only one who noticed the "Lincolnesque" nature of the caricature. As #1 noted, it was almost certainly unintentional, but those are the kinds of things that often have a strong, if subtle, impact.
As for the rest of it, I'm willing to take the entire matter at face--or in this case, cover--value: The New Yorker mocked Obama. It means he's lost them...for now.

Yes #45, the New Yorker you mention cover did show Obama dressed as a Muslim. Michelle was in an Angela Davis style get-up, and I believe was holding a machine gun.

When the New Yorker got flak for that cover, they claimed it was "satire," i.e. a joke ridiculing not the Obamas, but the Right -- for our allegedly unfounded fears about the Obama couple.

The irony was that the "satire" was actually very close to reality ... i.e., the Right was right after all.

Wonder if the New Yorker's editors have figured that out now?

Leland Yee’s campaign debt at root of
criminal behavior, authorities allege
Sacramento Bee [CA], by Jim Miller    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 3/31/2014 12:33:03 PM     Post Reply
In more than a decade of campaigns for the California Legislature, San Francisco mayor and secretary of state, state Sen. Leland Yee raised in excess of $5 million. Yet it was a campaign debt only a fraction of that amount that federal officials allege pulled the veteran politician into a sprawling sting operation. The 137-page FBI affidavit against Yee and more than 20 other defendants says the San Francisco Democrat’s focus on retiring a $70,000 campaign debt from his unsuccessful 2011 mayor’s race and raising money for his 2014 candidacy for secretary of state led him to accept bribes in return

The FBI isn’t breaking up with the SPLC —
it’s just not keeping the relationship “official”
Hot Air, by Dustin Siggins    Original Article

Last week, the FBI received a lot of attention and praise from conservative sources for finally eliminating the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) from its website’s list of “hate crimes” resources. However, while a headline at Breitbart says the FBI “dumps [SPLC] as hate crimes resource,” and an article at The Daily Caller said the FBI was “breaking ties” with the SPLC, a public statement from the FBI and the agency’s own website indicate the removal may mean just that — removal from the site, not a diminishing of the relationship between the two organizations.

The New Fear of Flying After MH370

No accident in history of flying has ever spooked as many people. It’s a crisis for the airline industry that wants to make Asia a larger market than North America and Europe combined. Fear of flying is irrational but often incurable. Once the doors close on the cabin there is no escape. Your life is in the hands of the pilots together with the most complex machine ever devised for travel. You have no control. The requirement for you to submit to confinement is reinforced by accepting the first bag of peanuts. Irrational? Just look at the numbers. Last year 1.3 million

College Football Unionization
Decision Opens a Can of Worms

A National Labor Relations Board official has given the green light to Northwestern University football players to form a union. The March 26 decision by the NLRB´s Chicago regional director, Peter Sung Ohr, held that scholarship football players are "employees" for purposes of federal labor law. Ohr rejected the longstanding view of Northwestern and the National Collegiate Athletic Association that players are "student-athletes" rather than employees. While Ohr´s decision is hardly the final word on this issue, it does accelerate the legal and political battle against the NCAA and its century-old amateurism rules. Is Football Academic?

Political hunt for sex abusers puts
military justice in peril, lawyers say

The push from the commander in chief, generals and politicians to punish sexual offenders has become so relentless that it endangers the fairness of the military justice system, defense lawyers say. They worry that a cacophony of public statements vouching for accusers and demanding justice can sway military judges and jurors who are trained to take lawful orders. A military judge already has ruled that “unlawful command influence” infected the infamous case of an Army general charged with a string of sex offenses. “I think it’s troublesome when you have the president and the secretary of defense making certain pronouncements about what’s to

Liberals keep dismissing challenges to ObamaCare, political and legal, so it´s no surprise they mostly ignored last week´s oral argument at the D.C.

"Bottom Line: We Are On Track To Launch” ranks right up there with “If you like your health care plan, you can keep it,” as one of the biggest falsehoods in the annals of Obamacare. The latter quote is the one that President Barack Obama used repeatedly as he lobbied for passage of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) and then as he campaigned for a second presidential term. PolitiFact named Obama’s statement the 2013 lie of the year. Less is known about the first quote, offered by Rocky King in a PowerPoint presentation. King was the then-Executive Director of

Experts say a bigger earthquake along the lesser-known fault that gave Southern California a moderate shake could do more damage to the region than the long-dreaded “Big One” from the more famous San Andreas Fault. The Puente Hills thrust fault, which brought Friday night’s magnitude-5.1 quake centered in La Habra and well over 100 aftershocks by Sunday, stretches from northern Orange County under downtown Los Angeles into Hollywood — a heavily populated swath of the Los Angeles area. A magnitude-7.5 earthquake along that fault could prove more catastrophic than one along the San Andreas, which runs along the outskirts of

In one of the ads Americans for Prosperity (AFP) has put on the air this year, a thirtysomething actress stands against a white backdrop and looks into the camera. “People don’t like political ads,” she says plaintively. “I don’t like them either. But health care isn’t about politics, it’s about people, and millions of people have lost their health insurance, millions of people can’t see their own doctors, and millions are paying more and getting less.” At the close, a narrator urges viewers to “tell Mary Landrieu to stop thinking about politics and start thinking about people.” Such ads have

Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, who won eight primaries and caucuses in the 2008 Republican presidential race, says a new poll showing him tied for the lead of the 2016 GOP primary race is "encouraging." The poll, done by Washington-based WPA Opinion Research, shows Huckabee and Rand Paul tied at the top of a still very unformed GOP race, with 13 percent each. Jeb Bush is second at 11 percent, with Chris Christie and Ted Cruz tied at nine percent, Paul Ryan and Marco Rubio at six percent, Scott Walker at five percent, Bobby Jindal and Rick Santorum at three percent,

The activist son of leftist billionaire George Soros nearly derailed an on-time state budget as he threatened to launch multimillion-dollar TV campaigns against Gov. Cuomo and legislative leaders unless they approved a sweeping system of publicly financed campaigns, The Post has learned. Jonathan Soros, who has already spent millions on campaign contributions and television advertising in an ironic campaign to “get private money out of politics,’’ warned Cuomo and the Senate’s co-leaders, Republican Dean Skelos (Nassau) and Democrat Jeff Klein (Bronx), Friday in direct conversations that he would launch election-year attacks against them, and encouraged others to do the same, if

Imagine if a former Republican presidential candidate and U.S. senator had called a current Republican president a delusional liar whose programs are wasteful. Would the mainstream media not be all over the story? Such a person would be interviewed at length by Wolf Blitzer on CNN as well as made the rounds of the morning talk shows and the Sunday news programs as well. The media buzz would be red hot on this topic for days extending into weeks. Well, there is such a person but because he is a Democrat saying these things about President Obama, we can expect

Las Vegas - Many of the Republican Party’s most powerful insiders and financiers have begun a behind-the-scenes campaign to draft former Florida governor Jeb Bush into the 2016 presidential race, courting him and his intimates and starting talks on fundraising strategy. Concerned that the George Washington Bridge traffic scandal has damaged New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie’s political standing and alarmed by the steady rise of Sen. Rand Paul (Ky.), prominent donors, conservative leaders and longtime operatives say they consider Bush the GOP’s brightest hope to win back the White House.

A "vast majority" of Mitt Romney donors, establishment pooh-bahs, and an anti-conservative consultant who is the epitome of permanent political class want former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush to run for president in 2016. Bush was in Las Vegas this week meeting with Sheldon Adelson, and, according to the Post, "many if not most of 2012 GOP nominee Mitt Romney’s major donors are reaching out to Bush and his confidants with phone calls, e-mails and invitations to meet." One bundler even said that a "vast majority” of "Romney’s top 100 donors would back Bush." The Post also noted that in the meantime "Bush’s

If Betsey McCaughey is correct (and I bet she is, because she has not only read the entire ObamaCare bill, she has written a book about it), Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan publicly humiliated herself during the oral arguments on the Hobby Lobby case, revealing that she either did not read the law, or failed to comprehend it if she did so. Writing in the New York Sun, McCaughey lays out what is wrong with the Justice’s declaration about Obamacare: she asserted that the statute itself mandates provision of birth control. Not one word in the Affordable Care Act guarantees health plans will cover birth control products.

President Bill Clinton´s guilty conscience over his affair with Monica Lewinsky – and a desire to repair his shattered reputation by using the State of the Union address – set his speechwriters an unenviable task, newly released archive papers reveal. The former president appeared to be trying to butter up his wife, Hillary Clinton, out of guilt – or perhaps to fool her – before the scandal broke. And he was determined to try to convince the American public afterwards that he was still of a high moral character. The latest batch of documents from the Clinton Library covering his presidency in the

Former U.S. Senator Bob Kerrey thinks President Barack Obama, a fellow Democrat, was re-elected in 2012 because he ´sucked less´ than former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney. The Nebraskan straight-talker told MailOnline in an exclusive interview that Obama isn´t up to the job of bringing liberals and conservatives to the table to rescue America´s slowly choking entitlement programs. And Obama, he said Wednesday in his Manhattan office, knew full well he was lying when he promised that the Affordable Care Act would allow Americans to keep insurance plans they liked. ´He had to know he was misleading the audience,´ Kerrey said

YOKOHAMA, Japan — Climate change is already having sweeping effects on every continent and throughout the world’s oceans, scientists reported Monday, and they warned that the problem is likely to grow substantially worse unless greenhouse emissions are brought under control. The report by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, a United Nations group that periodically summarizes climate science, concluded that ice caps are melting, sea ice in the Arctic is collapsing, water supplies are coming under stress, heat waves and heavy rains are intensifying, coral reefs are dying, and fish and many other creatures are migrating toward the poles or

I have no objections to Jeb Bush running for president. He obviously has a wide appeal as a potential candidate. (Snip) His support of Common Core, however, will also find many who are in the conservative ranks objecting, since they fear that Common Core represents educational centralism and having the government ram federal standards down their throats. What I do object to is that Bush is already being heralded as the obvious candidate, the man to whom the big money must and will flow. As the Washington Post reports: Many of the Republican Party’s most powerful insiders and financiers have begun a

President Obama’s Department of Homeland Security caught then released 68,000 aliens who had previously been convicted of a crime, a new report from the Center for Immigration Studies shows. The report, provided to Breitbart News ahead of its late Sunday evening release, reviews internal Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) metrics to conclude that the Obama administration released 35 percent—or 68,000—convicted criminal aliens back into the U.S. general population when they could have been deported. (Snip) In response to these findings from CIS that follow up on his office’s report last week, Sessions said immigration law in America has essentially ceased to

A National Labor Relations Board official has given the green light to Northwestern University football players to form a union. The March 26 decision by the NLRB´s Chicago regional director, Peter Sung Ohr, held that scholarship football players are "employees" for purposes of federal labor law. Ohr rejected the longstanding view of Northwestern and the National Collegiate Athletic Association that players are "student-athletes" rather than employees. While Ohr´s decision is hardly the final word on this issue, it does accelerate the legal and political battle against the NCAA and its century-old amateurism rules. Is Football Academic?

Today sees the release of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change´s (IPCC) latest findings on the state of "global warming" and the news isn´t good. Here are some of the highlights: Giant malarial mosquitoes the size of crane flies may descend en masse and drain us of our blood so quickly with their powerful razor sharp probosces that we won´t even have time to be infected - we´ll be dead before we hit the floor; Bangladesh, Tuvalu, The Maldives and Florida will all be submerged; Four horsemen with skulls for faces, glowing red eyes and huge scythes will gallop across
