… Good Bye Barack !! …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Tuesday,November 6th,2012

… I have checked out Ohio ‘ s early voting information . I am a C.P.A., with a speciality in tax accounting , and i can handle numbers. the numbers are available at the United States Election Project at George Mason University , for those of you who are interested …

[-] early vote — Democrat (OH) — the early vote for the DemoCraps in Ohio was not what anyone expected . It was down in a number of Democrat – leaning counties (Cuyahoga, in particular, also Mahoning , Ashtabula, & Franklin …

[-] early vote — Republican (OH) — the early vote for our side turned out much better than I could have hoped . In Ohio , 18 to 20 counties had increases of more than 10.0% in their early vote . All but two were Republican – leaning ones …

[-] exit polls — yea , i know , i know , they are exit polls . but they are some good , if you can pull anything out of them . I did . the electorate appears to be one of,  at best D+1 or D+2. That is very good news for the GOP. Most polls taken have been ones with assumptions of D+4 to as much (ridiculously) as D+12. It appears that it is not the case .

[-] Bill Cunningham — radio host from Cincinnati — I picked up his report to Sean Hannity on  the action downstate . He is as good as it gets , and from what he is saying , the news from downstate in and around Cincinnati and Hamilton County is excellent .

… I believe Barack Obama will lose Ohio , and by around 160k to 180k votes . It is not what one would hope for , but it should be enough . and , god willing , it will make Mitt Romney our next President …

… God Bless You , Artur Davis …

, U.S. Congressman.

Artur Davis

… Hey , folks , on a day like today , I wanted to repost this argument on the behalf of Mitt Romney , one that was made by former Congressman , then a Dem , now a conservative Republican , Artur Davis

…  by

If it turns out the life of Barack Obama’s presidency is measured in months, left-leaning analysts will agonize over what went so wrong. Their explanations will range from confusion over how a stunningly gifted orator never mastered the greatest national pulpit, to consternation about the intransigence of Republicans and the eruption of the Tea Party, to sober hand-wringing about the intractable nature of 21st Century democracy.

But the mourning will not match the genuine misery and perplexity many Americans feel regarding the state of the nation. For all the explanations of how Obama has fallen short of his promise, the simplest one is in the discontent of those 23 million plus individuals who are under or unemployed, some for such long stretches that they have fallen through the cracks of the government’s official statistics. These men and women are the source of a national fury over why things are the way they are, and they and the Americans who know them have proved resistant to deflecting responsibility or changing the subject.

To be sure, as his defenders never cease to point out, Obama was greeted with the debris of a national calamity. The country seemed to be teetering on the edge of depression for stretches in late 2008 and early 2009, a casualty of a Washington environment that privileged and made unaccountable the giant government sponsored housing enterprises and a reckless Wall Street culture that took the risk out of lending for the mortgagor. But rather than tackle the crisis with single-mindedness, Obama veered off in too many scattered directions: a stimulus whose legacy is a slew of poor returns on investments in alternative energy and uncompleted construction projects, a partisan healthcare law that drained off a year of the administration’s efforts, a massive overhaul of the carbon producing economy that was too unwieldy for even many Democrats to embrace, a financial industry bill that has not stopped excessive leveraging in the capital markets. The portfolio is one that Obama and his allies have strained to explain, much less justify.

So much of the defense of Obama’s results is weighted with excuses. But the record is one that Democrats would be mortified by if it had John McCain’s name on it: unemployment ratcheting up to as much as 10% before it headed back down; the limpest recovery in modern times; staggering levels of poverty among minorities and children; appalling losses of middle income savings and stagnant worker wages. It is an inventory that has caused millions of American to lose faith in both Wall Street and Washington, and that has left America decidedly more stratified between rich and poor (imagine the Democratic angst if a McCain recovery had left massive corporate profits while workers stayed in an uncertain, desperate state, precisely the state of play for the second half of Obama’s terms)

The debates, especially the first one in Denver, signaled how thin the prospective agenda for four more years really is: beyond the old pledge to add to the tax burden on American small businesses and entrepreneurs—an eventuality that would barely dent the deficit—and generalized promises to try again on tax reform, immigration, and energy policy, the cupboard seems light, without much reason to think that initiatives that Obama’s own party balked at would suddenly become viable. There is certainly little that would rally Americans who have lost ground on Obama’s watch.

It is impossible to assess Obama without addressing the central Democratic thesis about why he has disappointed. From African American talk shows to the editorial pages of the nation’s establishment papers, the argument is advanced that Obama has been undone by a ferocious kind of Republican opposition. The case does not survive scrutiny: Mitch McConnell’s vaunted pledge to impede Obama was made with a weakened hand of forty Republican votes in the Senate, not even enough to sustain the dreaded filibuster. Even the addition in early 2010 of one more GOP seat did not result in actual blockage of one Obama initiative during the first two years of this presidency. To a degree that Obama’s partisans don’t understand or won’t concede, the entirety of his economic agenda was written into law in those first two years.

The bracing truth is not that Obama was denied a chance to govern, but that the government he produced has proved so unappealing and been so inadequate to the challenges of the times. The healthcare reform, Obama’s most notable victory, is illustrative. The law’s convoluted path, the single instance since the thirties of a party-line vote carrying landmark legislation, has contributed to Washington’s distance from Main Street. That gap will only grow more distressing as middle income Americans are subject to new taxes if they don’t purchase insurance, as small businesses minimize their work force to avoid the law’s mandates, and the estimates of higher premiums touch the pockets of ordinary families.

Obviously, the case against Obama is just one half of the equation in this election. Mitt Romney’s campaign took time to find its footing, and the exigencies of winning his party’s nomination damaged his standing for months. But as Romney has come into full view, it is evident that his central virtue is experience in effectively managing complex systems, a trait rare in national politicians. As much as the President demonized it, Romney’s development of Bain Capital into a private equity model required him to master the challenge of maximizing investor earnings in extremely unfavorable circumstances: Romney’s tenure there was a consistent narrative of turning companies around and if anything, his campaign should have touted it more. His gubernatorial term in Massachusetts happens to be exactly what a successful presidency would require, from a capacity to bargain with as well as outmaneuver a hotly partisan opposition, to a willingness to experiment with the fine points of policy. Romney’s is the record of a consistent conservative, but not one who would wage his own distracting counter-revolution. His history is one of grappling with hard political questions while showing a respect for the side of a dispute that does not share his views.

Critics will argue that Romney’s tax and spending cut proposals are too weighted toward the wealthy, and there is no question that like any set of campaign promises, the details will need to be refined. (The governor’s plans are notably more specific than Obama’s wafer-thin outline on healthcare and financial reform in 2008). But Romney has laid down a marker that he can be judged by, that consists of prioritizing budget discipline and that evokes strategies that even many Democrats embrace, like scaling back the corporate tax rate and simplifying the tax code. The blueprint is the basis for an authentic bipartisan compromise in 2013.

There is one final story: one of how the Obama administration misread the American people by governing against the sentiments of a center-right country and confusing its isolation with moral authority. It is the signature not just of a flailing presidency but a weakened liberal philosophy. Herein lies the final Obama tragedy: an inability to refashion his party’s philosophy in a way that strengthened public trust. The case that another term would magically improve things rests too much on blind faith, and Obama has drawn from that well once before. The national interest demands a change in our leadership…

… Those Knuckleheads have struck Again !! …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Tuesday,November 6th,2012

… Yea , Those Knuckleheads have struck again…

… Yea , I am talking about the New Black Panther Party, god in heaven help us all …

the New Black Panthers Strike Again !!

… Today is Election Day , and those idiots are in a Philadelphia county polling place . For those who are the uninitiated , Philadelphia County in Pennsylvania is where the city of Philadelphia is located …

… those numskulls entered into a consent agreement with the ObamaCrap Department of Injustice almost two years ago . It was done in order to beat foot on the response of the House Dems to the complaints of the House GOP , with the impending likely blowout at the midterm elections in 2010 almost at hand . Unfortunately , the consent agreement that was entered into was a real “limp noodle.” These goons were using guns at the entrance to several polling places , and the DofiJ enters into a consent agreement, with no criminal charges at all ?

                                                                                           Outrageous !!!!

Michael Bloomberg - Cartoon

… I am absolutely amazed at Micheal Bloomberg …

… Has he had a case of brain freeze , or what ? the pain , the suffering , the dislocation , and the supply shortages , not to mention the damage and the human suffering of the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy has left one hell of  a mess , all over the region , especially in the state of New Jersey . At least Chris Christe is using his brain , in addition to his common sense …

… New Jerseyans are to be commended , so far . The damage that they have suffered from Sandy is hideous . Do they have a right to complain ? You bet they do . Are they ? Generally , no , they are not . They are putting on their thinking caps , and their tool belts , putting out their Bobcats ,  and putting their shoulders to the grindstone , and getting about the task of rebuilding …

… and Mayor Mikey and the City of New York  decide to go on with the New York Marathon ?!?! Is he crazy ? HELL Yes !!

… Chris Christie is leading , and doing so by example . He is not worried about his re – election chances , and he is up for election next year . If he handles this effectively , even Cory Booker will not dare challenge him …

… is Dingy Harry nuts ?!?! …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Friday,November 2nd,2012

Harry Reid ,  of all people , is supremely arrogant , or he is totally insane . He has been quoted as saying he and his democratic caucus will do everything in their power to stop Mitt Romney and his agenda , if he is elected . Maybe he needs a 72 hr hold in a mental hospital for a thorough exam of his gray matter and his schmartz . More than likely , he is an extraordinarily arrogant ass . Why wave a red flag in front of  a bull , 96 hrs out , and give him even more motivation than he and she have already …

… earth to Dingy Harry , the election is Tuesday . Duh ! … … No one has been elected yet , stupid ! … Nevada has , like other states , early voting , and it is a competitive tossup state . It is , in theory , leaning to President Obama ,  and POTUS is going to need all the help that he can get . the Nevada GOP is going to want revenge for 2010 , and his dirty tricks that he and the unions pulled in his own re – election campaign . and now , you piss us off even more ? Real Stupid , dumbass ! … also , Dingy Harry , you are assuming that you will and your fellow Dems will be in the majority . Considering that you have 23 seats to defend , and the 2 toughest GOP seats to defend are likely to be defended well , you will have a tough time  hanging on to your job , especially with a dumb – dumb stunt like this ! …
