Conservative on Target! 10/16/12

On the Debate: There was nothing good about this debate. Obama & Romney kept getting lost. Their confrontational style was off-putting. And the moderator was disgustingly partial. All in all, I don’t think Romney moved forward and Obama may have stopped some of the bleeding. And I’ll bet a whole lot of “un-decided” went home shaking their heads and vowing they won’t bother to vote.


All Purpose Democrat Rebuttal


Random Thoughts from Thomas Sowell:
  • Economist Edward Lazear has cut through all of Barack Obama's claims about "creating jobs" with one plain and inescapable fact -- "there hasn't been one day during the entire Obama presidency when as many Americans were working as on the day President Bush left office." Whatever number of jobs were created during the Obama administration, more have been lost.
  • Whenever you hear people talking about "a living Constitution," almost invariably they are people who are in the process of slowly killing it by "interpreting" its restrictions on government out of existence.
  • Do either Barack Obama or his followers have any idea how many countries during the 20th century set out to "spread the wealth" -- and ended up spreading poverty instead? At some point, you have to turn from rhetoric, theories and ideologies to facts.
  • I am so old that I can remember when liberals were liberal -- instead of being intolerant of anything and anybody that is not politically correct.


   2012 Is a 'Non-Tea Party Year': The influence of people with what has been described as "Tea Party Values" (small government, fiscal sanity, regulatory restraint) in this, the movement's first presidential test, promises to be huge. As Dustin Hawkins noted at Breitbart's Big Government site late last month, they number roughly 41 million (31% of the likely voters), according to an AP-GfK poll which was not exactly predisposed to find them or treat them fairly. It seems safe to say that the percentage of this group which will vote is greater than that of the average likely voter, and that the New Hampshire contingent's predisposition to consider voting for someone running to the left of the two incumbent GOP congressmen named above is low.
   Sherman and by inference the two Granite State Democratic congressional candidates rest their "non-tea party year" claim almost entirely on Congress's low approval rating (Sherman could also have cited the GOP's aversion to using the term "tea party" at the Republican National Convention, but that's more a reflection of GOP establishment cowardice than it is of Tea Party weakness). Horse manure. Tea Party-sympathetic voters and many others probably totaling close to half the electorate, if not more, aren't upset at Congress and Boehner because they have governed too far to the right, but because they are largely seen as having too often buckled or and sold sensible conservatism short.
