    Eight co-sponsors of ‘audit the Fed’ bill vote against it without explanation

    The eight co-sponsors, all Democrats, that voted against their own legislation not only sponsored the 2012 bill, but each also co-sponsored its 2009 incarnation.

    A spokesman for California Democratic Rep. Pete Stark merely informed TheDC, “He did not release a statement,” and declined to explain his about-face.

    Spokesmen for the other seven flip-floppers — Lynn Woolsey of California, John Conyers of Michigan, Maurice Hinchey of New York, Jim McDermott of Washington, Marcy Kaptur of Ohio, Steven Rothman of New Jersey and Silvestre Reyes of Texas — did not respond at all.

    **I have said all along up until the primaries were over don’t even look at the polls, but I have also said after them start noticing the trends.

    REPORT: Obama’s ‘You didn’t build that’ gaffe won’t bring back teleprompter…


  • lbsles

    While campaigning for Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney in Aventura, Former NYC Mayor Rudy Giuliani, who is highly regarding among members of the ‘conservative’ Jewish community, made the case for why Jewish-Americans should vote for Mitt Romney and not President Obama this coming November.

    Rudy Giuliani made it very clear how he felt about President Obama’s appeasement of the Islamic world and betrayal of Israel. Giuliani also stated that Obama’s approval rating with Israelis is a paltry 12%. When asked what he thought about President Obama being referred to as Israel’s closest friend, the good mayor responded-

    “I think that is the biggest joke I’ve ever heard- that he’s a friend of the state of Israel, I think that he is the least supportive President to the state of Israel that we’ve ever had since the state of Israel has existed, Republican or Democrat.” -Mayor Rudy Giuliani

    1.5% grow is a terrible sign. I posted earlier the bar has been set that low. A sign of the times.

    To the lib. media President Obama can truly do no wrong.


    Thanks for the post. As someone who struggles with grammar I appreciate the thought. Like I like to tell the lefties don’t confuse grammar with intelligence. Some of the dumbest people I have ever met were self important eggheads.

    Biggest problem with auto industry is that when the makes say that “X” number of vehicles sold, it’s not about sold units

    You are forgetting one other trick they use. Rental car fleets! If they need sales up they replenish Hertz, National, etc, but they dont bill them right away but count them as sold units. Then there is the “special orders” for instance Chicago Police cars. They can “book” them as sold but not deliver for months and month due to the “special build”.

    See now that’s not nice but on the other hand I have noticed the crumpled look and thought, okay you are on TV look presentable. Luckily for me I can’t take what comes out of her mouth so I don’t have to look at her.

    Putan will test us with in the next 4 years

    I think he will test Obama but he wont do anything for a while until he gets a feel for Romney and sees who Romney surrounds himself with

  • usnretiredx2

    @Coffee Steve

    I did not say who would be in office just that he will test us. I too agree it will be either one of them. If it is Obama it will happen sooner I think where if it is Romney he will feel him out first then test. Putan has to to show the Russian People they are the World Leader (that is Putan is) This will lock him in for another term as well as his plan of the Russian leader for life.

    Dang Ratboy, people are going to start to think were are one and the same. :twisted:

  • Sicilian Papa

    Rasmussen polls likely voters. A lot of the other companies poll registered voters. A significant number of those voters don’t vote. That is often why you see a difference in their polling.

    Just heard a intresting statement about Chick-Fil-A.

    The Owner needs to keep personal statements out of busness.

    Funny thing,they did not make the same statement when Biden and Obama made statements on their personel belief on Gay rights to the world.
