New York RINO Drops Out of New York District 23 Congressional Race

Who says a conservative third-party candidate can't prevail? Certainly not the true conservatives in upstate New York.

ALBANY, N.Y. – Fighting plunging support, Republican Dierdre Scozzafava abruptly suspended her campaign Saturday in a special election for a U.S. House seat that has exposed a rift among national factions of the party.

Campaign spokesman Matt Burns said Scozzafava is essentially withdrawing from the race, although her name will remain on Tuesday's ballot. She thinks stepping aside is best for the party, he said.
"It is increasingly clear that pressure is mounting on many of my supporters to shift their support," Scozzafava said in a written statement. "Consequently, I hereby release those individuals who have endorsed and supported my campaign to transfer their support as they see fit."

The announcement comes after a Siena College poll found she was in third place with 20 percent of the vote in the heavily Republican upstate New York district that has been safe ground for the party for more than 100 years. Conservative Party nominee Doug Hoffman and Democratic nominee Bill Owens were too close to call with 35 percent and 36 percent, respectively.

In recent days it seemed like the only prominent Republican that still supported Scozzafava was Newt Gingrich and of course the Republican National Committee. The RNC moved quickly to endorse Hoffman, meaning what? That when conservatives stand together we can have an impact on the national party and take it back  from the RINOS. Smart conservatives know that a third party is not the way to go. What did a third party get us in 1992? Eight years of William Jefferson Blythe Clinton and the use of Lewinsky as a verb to describe fellatio.  Oh yeah, and a secretary of state who is quite possibly as bad as Madeline Aldumb or Warren "Yertle the Turtle" Christopher. Hoffman would have preferred to run as a Republican, but the RINOS running the Republican establishment in New York wouldn't have it. So he turned the tables on them and his strategy worked thanks to a lot of publicity generated first by Fred Thompson and Sarah Palin then picked up by prominent conservative talk show hosts nationwide. This is a great victory for conservatism because it marks the beginning of the process of turning the Republican Party back into the party of Reagan.

Mao Groupie's Hubby May Take White House Counsel Job

How convenient! The Messiah's personal attorney and Mao Ze Dunn's hubby, Bob Bauer may be taking over for Greg Craig (did this guy's parents hate him or what?) as venerable White House counsel to the most leftist administration in U.S. history:

White House Communications Director Anita Dunn's husband is emerging as the top candidate to replace Greg Craig as White House counsel, Fox News has learned.

Dunn's husband, Bob Bauer, is President Obama's personal lawyer and a former counsel to his campaign, as well as the top lawyer for the Democratic National Committee.

Senior White House officials declined to comment, but Democrats close to the situation said Bauer is under serious consideration to replace Craig, who is expected to leave the White House by the end of the year.

White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs said no decisions have been made on Craig's future or on any potential replacement.

Dunn, who has leveled sharp criticism at Fox News in recent weeks, is also expected to leave the White House by the end of the year. She took the communications post on an interim basis in late April, replacing Ellen Moran, who resigned to become chief of staff at the Commerce Department.
 Presumably Dunn will be leaving to take the communications director post for Mao national shrine and museum where she will spin his slaughter of 50-70 million Chinese during his regime as "the people's right to choose" to end their lives prematurely.

It's rather unusual for a man and a woman who have little or nothing in common to become man and wife. So it's only fair to assume that Bauer is aware of his wife's Maoist tendencies and approves of them, if not actively supporting her love of genocidal maniacs. And this guy, married to a commie-loving feminazi straight from hell (why else would she not do the respectable thing and take her husband's last name) -- a guy who is obvious a close friend of The Messiah himself -- is going to be handling legal affairs for the White House. How much better can it get, folks?

"Living With" Ten Percent Unemployment

Yes folks, ten months into the Administration of the Exalted Messiah, we're beginning to transition from the "I inherited a mess" excuse for the continued economic troubles to the "new norm" explanation for the economic mess we're still in:

WASHINGTON -- Even with an economic revival, many U.S. jobs lost during the recession may be gone forever and a weak employment market could linger for years.
That could add up to a "new normal" of higher joblessness and lower standards of living for many Americans, some economists are suggesting.
The words "it's different this time" are always suspect. But economists and policy makers say the job-creating dynamics of previous recoveries can't be counted on now.

First of all, let's put to bed the notion that there is some type of "economic revival". Last time I checked, just like the definition of a recession is two quarters of negative economic growth, the definition of a recovery ought to be two quarters of positive economic growth. Sorry to burst The Messiah's bubble but we didn't even have one quarter of positive economic growth. What we have is the lapdog liberal media peeing their pants at every little teeny-tiny scintilla of evidence that there might be some positive economic news and immediately pouncing on it to declare the recession over. Let's look at the facts:

* For the entire eight years of the Bush Administration liberals and their lapdogs in the press were declaring that the growth years of the Bush Administration were the worst for the economy since the Great Depression even though the exact opposite was the truth.

* During a Republican administration, the media trot out the soup line occupants and homeless shelter sad sacks at the first sign of one minor economic indicator dropping 1/100th of a percent. In fact, even during the boom years in a Republican administration (which are most of the years of a Republican administration), you can't get past the stories about the people the economy has "left behind". Oddly enough, during a Democrat administration -- especially The Messiah's administration -- these stories are non-existent, even as the economy continues to tank.

* In the U.S., we are used to robust economic growth (spurred by conservative economic policies) interrupted by short recessionary pullbacks (spurred by liberal economic policies -- this is an historical fact). In all past cases -- even preceding the Great Depression -- the definition of a recovery has been wild economic growth that has brought us back to the baseline and past it in a matter of months. Nothing even close to that is happening right now.

*The Dow has been lingering between 9,000 and 10,000 for the past 3 months and the trend could only be described as mediocre -- it's not exactly charging ahead. Every major economic indicator -- unemployment, consumer confidence, home sales, household income -- are in the tank. None of them have even come close to approaching their pre-recession baselines. Yet the press jumps up and down for joy at new home sales being up a few percentage points when they are actually comparing new home sales to the previous year when they were at record lows. Can you imagine ANY member of the press talking about a "jobless recovery" with a straight face during the last administration? Of course not. But in the era of The Messiah, it's actually given serious consideration. NEWS FLASH: You can't have a "recovery" without jobs because if people are still losing their jobs, the economy isn't recovering. Likewise, would the press have accepted a Bush Administration estimate of "saved jobs"? Of course not, but they lap it up when Obama and his minions talk about how many jobs their massive, irresponsible spending has "saved".

The facts are that the only reason why we will have to "live with" chronic 10+% unemployment (17+% if you count those who have given up their search or have taken part time employment) is because liberal economic policies -- talk of higher taxes on everything from cow farts to soda pop, crushing debt that threatens double-digit inflation and the loss of our AAA credit rating, absolute, unadulterated out of control government spending on top of out of control spending -- are going to continue to kill this economy and make it so that we WILL have to "live with" protracted economic malaise. We know what will fix this. We know how we can pull ourselves out of the Obama economic malaise. All we have to do is learn from history: Conservative economic policies grow the economy, liberal economic policies kill the economy. We can fix this by throwing the liberal bums -- Democrat and Republican alike -- out and electing good conservatives who will institute pro-growth economic policies.

Enter the "Pay Czar"

No, you didn't wake up in Communist China or the former Soviet Union this morning (although either one of these countries is arguably more capitalist than we are any more). You woke up in the Brave New World of Obama where the "Pay Czar" dictates executive pay:

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Top White House economic adviser Lawrence Summers said on Wednesday the administration's pay czar will "substantially reduce" the paychecks at firms that have received billions of taxpayer dollars.
"With respect to the companies that have been major recipients of federal support, Ken Feinberg is reviewing them...(and) will, I suspect, produce an outcome where they will be very substantially reduced," Summers told the Reuters Washington Summit.
Feinberg, the pay czar appointed by President Barack Obama in June, is expected to cut total compensation by an average of 50 percent for the top earners at seven bailed-out firms, sources familiar with the matter said on Wednesday.
The administration has faced public outrage, as Wall Street firms that were recently propped up by federal assistance have brought their bonuses back to pre-crisis levels even as the general population faces the highest unemployment level in 26 years.

Some might argue that these folks make to much anyway and that their firms took government money and if you are in bed with the government, the feds dictate the terms of your employment.  First of all, who in the hell are the feds to be dictating how much money a CEO makes? This is a decision that should be made by a board of directors that is elected by the shareholders. Secondly, now you see why these "bailouts" were a crappy idea in the first place. If the CEO does such a lousy job that his company fails, let it fail. That's the free market. No company is "too big to fail". Are these banks and automakers any better off with the government money than without it? Hell no. Just ask the folks at the Ford Motor Company whose executives aren't having their pay dictated by a "pay czar" because they didn't strike a deal with the devil.

White House Communications Director is a Mao Groupie

What is it with commie-lovers in this administration? Mark Lloyd worships Hugo Chavez and admires his control over the media in Venezuela. Carol Browner is a Socialist. Van Jones was a Socialist. The Messiah worships communists which is probably why there are so many in his administration. And now we have Anita Dunn, the White House communications director, an avowed admirer of Mao Zedong. Here's video from Glenn Beck's show in which Dunn names genocidal maniac and communist Mao Zedong as one of her top two favorite political philosophers then proceeds to expound on her admiration of his political history and spunk.

Dunn is the one who has declared war on Fox News claiming that they get their talking points from the Republican Party.   

Nearly every host on Fox News, especially Glenn Beck who has installed a "red phone" from Fox News studios to the White House, would love to talk to Mao Ze Dunn about these allegations, but Dunn has been strangely non-communicative with the people at Fox who just want to set the record straight. Perhaps it's just that Dunn isn't interested in airing out the facts about her affection for Mao and the affinity The Messiah has for choosing socialists and communists for the important cabinet positions. Sounds to me like she's more interested in taking the same position news media the Obama Administration objects to here in the United States of America land of the free, home of the brave, as Hugo Chavez has in Venezuela -- just shut them down. You know, the same type of strategy her colleague Mark Lloyd, the FCC "diversity czar" praised Chavez for.

The Messiah Wins Nobel Peace Prize !!!!????

Last week, I heard The Messiah described as a beta male dog:

The alpha male dog is the one that will protect it's territory at all costs. The beta male rolls over, exposing his belly and throat to the alpha male to show him he means him no harm and as a way of begging for the other dog's mercy. The liberal's president is our beta male dog. An apologist for the "sins" of America, appeaser of terror states, friend of dictators, apologist for America's overwhelming power and strength that has made the world a safer and freer place. And worse, he's determined to diminish our status as a world military power in the face of tremendous threats to our security and that of our allies. Hence the reason the panty-wastes at the Nobel committee conferred upon our beta male dog their worthless prize.
