July 29, 2012: DNC Chair Rep. Debbie Wasserman-Schultz on “Face the Nation” (CBS)
After Dismal GDP Report, DNC Chair Says Things Are Turning Around [:40]
Let’s just put two things she says in context.
About the economy having contracted just before Obama took office … that contraction happened two years after DEMOCRATS took over majority control in Washington, during the two year period when Obama was in the Senate.
As for the “twelfth straight quarter of growth”, may I just say Big Freakin’ Whoop about that? She’s talking about increases in the GDP that are so small, they barely register on the only graph I really understand and care about, which is this one showing what percentage of Americans have JOBS.

H/t to Pistol Pete for W-S video and to Red Pill for data I used for the graph.
She’s 18 lb, 26 inches and about to cut all four of her top teeth.
The Buzzers are very busy this week packing and cleaning to leave for Daddy’s new station. It’ll be a long drive and a big adventure. They’re so excited!
To help the kids with the hours in their car seats, I made this nifty car organizer. It belts into the middle seat between them. Clever Bunny figured out how to get those books out of the pocket all by herself. You can see the soft flannel car quilt I made to match in the other pocket.
I have the hardest time referring to this woman as the First LADY.

Make no mistake. This coming election will be nothing more nor less than our national referendum on big government. Do we want the government to continue to become bigger and more powerful? Or do we want to roll it back to something like what the Founders had in mind?

The choice is simple.
If you think Big Government is a benevolent nanny, like Mary Poppins, then vote Democrat.
But if you agree with Gerald Ford, that “A government big enough to give you everything you need, is a government big enough to take away everything that you have,” then vote Republican.
YOU vote it how YOU see it and let the majority choose our nation’s future.
Note: The quote above is often attributed to Thomas Jefferson, but at the Monticello site, it says: “We have never found such a statement in Jefferson’s writings. As far as we know, this statement actually originates with Gerald R. Ford, who said [it] in an address to a joint session of Congress on August 12, 1974.” http://www.monticello.org/site/jefferson/government-big-enough-to-give-you-everything-you-wantquotation

YOU DIDN’T BUILD THAT,OBAMA DID!
WOOKIE SHOWS OFF $6,800 JACKET YOU BOUGHT FOR HER
You just can’t avoid this nightmare.I spared you photos of her being lifted by a woman weightlifter and hugging the USA basketball team.Sure glad she’s enjoying herself.
“Did this black woman just call me Lizzie?Who is she?The serving wench?”
This is another area where the difference between the two candidates could not be greater. Many Jews and Christians care deeply about Israel. If you talk with any about November, the resources below may prove useful.
Earlier this week, Nancy Pelosi stated emphatically that “President Obama … has been [to Israel] over and over again.”
Pelosi’s statement is misleading on two counts. “Over and over again” reads like “three or more” whereas Barack Obama has been to Israel only two times. Both were brief visits when he was a U.S. Senator. He has never been to Israel as President or as a private citizen.
During his 24 hour visit in July 2008, Obama made a speech in which he promised that, if he won the presidential election, he would work “from the minute I’m sworn into office” towards ending the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
I don’t follow that part of the news very closely, but so far as I’m aware, the situation has not improved one bit in the 3 years and 7 months since the minute Obama was sworn into office. But then we’ve seen in recent blogs how much “work” Obama does not do.
Romney pledges support for Israel [9:13]
This video is long. Basically, Romney told an Israeli audience in Jerusalem that the United States has “a solemn duty and a moral imperative” to block Iran from achieving nuclear weapons capability, while Obama has done nothing to deter Iran’s loudly stated intentions to develop the ability to nuke Israel into a radioactive cloud of dust.
March 4, 2012: Obama spoke to AIPAC and claimed he’s been there for Israel at every critical juncture in his presidency.
Since this is a recent statement on his relationship to Israel while he’s been President, I’m including it for anyone who wants to hear his side of the story. The video (embedded at URL) is long, but the transcript is linked at the page if you prefer to skim that.
Obama and his peeps say he’s a friend to Israel. Rudy Giuliani says he is the “least supportive” U.S. President in history. [2:28]
I’m thinking that if Obama were telling the truth about having been such a big, hot supporter of Israel’s interests, he’d be really popular in Israel now. KWIM? So why is his approval in Israel only 12%? Hmm? Maybe he’s exaggerating or might I even say lying about having done so much for Israel? Noooooooo … Obama lie? ::snort::
This week, Romney is visiting Israel, so naturally Obama is suddenly sending millions in aid money there. (And here I thought we were broke. Ahem.) Is Obama throwing OUR (borrowed from China) money at Israel just a campaign gag? Let me think …
Remember when Ben Nelson sold out his Pro-Life values for a meaningless executive order saying Obama would never allow tax moneys to be used for abortion. Riiiight. And who has been sending money to Planned Parenthood in states that have defunded them? PP is the biggest abortion provider in the country.
Obama himself said, “If you want to know where my heart lies, look no further than what I have done.” I’ve been looking right along and it’s clear to me that what Obama does when he wants something from you bears no resemblance to what he’ll do once he has gotten what he wants out of you.

Answer: It is the capital of Israel.
Question: ….. ???
Israel says Jerusalem is its capital, but it has not been internationally recognized as such. The status of the city, and especially its holy places, remains a core issue in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
Here is Obama’s mealy mouthed, flip-flopping excuse for “policy” on the capital of Israel [1:41]
Here is Romney’s position statement on this issue. [1:21]
Major hat tip with a cane twirl and time step for Pistol Pete who first posted a lot of this stuff for our edification.

The purpose of the Cabinet is both to advise the President and to rein in any attempts by him to abuse his power. Reagan and George W. Bush each met with their Cabinets 36 times in their first year alone.
Obama has convened his Cabinet only twice in the past 8 months. He has met individually with his Secretaries of Defense (18), Treasury (15), and State (14), plus one meeting each with Agriculture and Veterans Affairs. But he has not sat down with the other ten at all.
Some of these omissions are particularly puzzling.
How could he not meet with Attorney General Eric H. Holder even once during all that time Congress had Holder on the hot seat, then voted to hold him in contempt? And where did he get the nerve to grant Holder “executive privilege” when they hadn’t even talked?
Gas prices are still killing us all, at the pumps and in higher prices for everything that gets shipped anywhere, which is pretty much everything. Yet Obama never once met with his Secretary of Energy.
He also never met with his Secretaries of Commerce or Labor, despite record-high unemployment and record-low economic growth.
And did someone call off that terrorist threat thing? Obama never met with his Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano.
He also never met with Kathleen Sebelius, his Secretary of Health and Human Services and the author of the HHS mandate that has led to dozens of lawsuits and a revolt among formerly loyal-to-Democrats Catholics.
It’s easy to see where his priorities lie.

I am firmly pro-life. I believe that if abortion were limited to cases of rape, incest, and circumstances in which the mother’s life is in peril, we will have gone a long way to ending abortion in this country. I support the reversal of Roe v. Wade, because it is bad law and bad medicine. Roe was a misguided ruling that was a result of a small group of activist federal judges legislating from the bench.
I support the Hyde Amendment, which broadly bars the use of federal funds for abortions. And as president, I will end federal funding for abortion advocates like Planned Parenthood.
I will reinstate the Mexico City Policy to ensure that nongovernmental organizations that receive funding from America refrain from performing or promoting abortion services, as a method of family planning, in other countries. This includes ending American funding for any United Nations or other foreign assistance program that promotes or performs abortions on women around the world.
I will advocate for and support a Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act to protect unborn children who are capable of feeling pain from abortion.
And perhaps most importantly, I will only appoint judges who adhere to the Constitution and the laws as they are written, not as they want them to be written.
As Governor of Massachusetts, I fought to promote abstinence education in the classroom, vetoed legislation to provide emergency contraception without a prescription, and vetoed embryonic cloning legislation. I am proud to say that each time I was presented with legislation on life issues, I sided with life. I remain strongly dedicated to that position.
I am running for president because I believe in America and know that our best days are still ahead. I believe that the principles that made America the leader of the world today—freedom, opportunity, and free enterprise to name just a few—are the very principles that will keep America the leader of the world tomorrow. These last few years have not been the best of times. But while we’ve lost a few years, we have not lost our way.
