News In Brief (And The Usual Opinionated Commentary)

Obama Poll Numbers Continue To Fall

This is a pretty quick fall from grace we have going on here. Maybe Obama's team would do well to listen to the people who are not happy, and actually consider what they have to say for a change. With each passing moment, leftists are demeaning those who disagree with the President and Congress, instead of using some critical thinking skills to properly analyze why things are tanking on them. But stubborn is as stubborn does.

With that in mind, get ready for another round of hearing about those "
teabagging Republicans and swastika-carrying Nazi sympathizers who want Obama to fail". Get ready. Because it won't be long before we are saturated with more hateful rhetoric like, "what a shame it is that so much misinformation is causing America to revert back to its racist roots".

New York Governor David Paterson is already using his race card to excuse his incompetence and professional failures. But who can really blame him when it has worked in so many other instances. And what a valuable lesson it is to all Black-Americans, when adversity knocks on their door. When they fail, just proclaim how the white man is keeping the black man down and it all goes away.

More Information On Release Of Lockerbie Terrorist

Details are emerging about a possible deal that was made that included the release of the criminal responsible for sending 270 innocent people to an early death, a little over 20 years ago.

If I were the people of Britain, I would be calling my MP and demanding his resignation and new elections. Evidently, gross incompetence is not merely an American government trait.

Annie Liebowitz Faces Financial Ruin
In what now appears as a disastrous decision to raise funds, Leibovitz took a 24-million-dollar loan from Art Capital Group (ACG) -- in effect a high-end pawn broker -- in December 2008 using her own photographs as collateral.

That debt is due September 8 and if she can't pay up, she could lose her life's work.
As I read this article, I desperately tried to care. But as I thought about how she took advantage of a 15 year-old minor child without her parents around, I found that I just didn't have it within me.

Reid Trails Likely GOP Candidates.

It's the highest stakes ever for a Nevada election, and former boxer Sen. Harry Reid is on the ropes early. Either Republican Danny Tarkanian or Sue Lowden would knock out Reid in a general election, according to a recent poll of Nevada voters.

The results suggest the Democratic Senate majority leader will have to punch hard and often in order to retain his position as the most accomplished politician in state history, in terms of job status.

Nevadans favored Tarkanian over Reid 49 percent to 38 percent and Lowden over Reid 45 percent to 40 percent, according to the poll.

Reid's status makes him an icon of the Democratic Party and ties him to Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., and President Barack Obama, both of whom are losing ground among centrist and right-leaning voters in the country.

If Nevada didn't have a 13 percent unemployment rate and the Obama bunch highly discouraging conventions in Vegas, maybe Harry would have a chance. But as it stands now, the most inept and spineless Senate leader of all time is toast.

Reid is toast. That 40% number is nearly double his approval rating.

Hi LAS !

Latest humor early this morning (Monday) on an English radio station:

Remember the old question ...

Q: What's under a Scotsman's kilt ?

A: Nothing.

Good catch on that one Chuck. I wonder what their methodology is on some of these polls/surveys.
