Mitt Romney,

IF General Motors, Ford and Chrysler get the bailout that their chief executives asked for yesterday, you can kiss the American automotive industry goodbye. It won’t go overnight, but its demise will be virtually guaranteed.

Without that bailout, Detroit will need to drastically restructure itself. With it, the automakers will stay the course — the suicidal course of declining market shares, insurmountable labor and retiree burdens, technology atrophy, product inferiority and never-ending job losses. Detroit needs a turnaround, not a check.

Romney says for American auto makers to be competitive they’ve got to get rid of current labor contracts and also must reduce retiree benefits.  These are adding about $2,000 to every car compared with foreign made automobiles.


American Thinker,

Among the throng of Clinton regime retreads recruited for the Obama administration we find Gregory Craig. Craig served as Obama’s advisor on Latin American during the campaign, and was appointed last week as chief White House Counsel.

The MSM has mentioned Craig’s role as Bill Clinton’s impeachment lawyer, but mostly has omitted mention of Craig’s role as chief facilitator for Fidel Castro’s shanghaiing of Elian Gonzalez.

Bet you didn’t know how much your vote cost to get.

Here’s the kind of stuff real politics fans revel in: Which candidate spent the most TV advertising money per vote received

Barack Obama spent $14.85 per vote received in Nevada.  The John McCain-Sarah Palin ticket spent $13.95 there.

Obama spent $7.23 per vote in Missouri, but still lost to McCain, who shelled out “only” $5.19.

Obama spent $12.15 to win each vote in Virginia while the Republican spent $4.35.

How about Florida? McCain = $2.11. Obama = $8.86.

New Mexico: Obama = $7.23. McCain = $9.25.

Montana: Obama = $6.09. McCain = $0.

Ohio: Obama = $7.90. McCain = $5.80.

Pennsylvania: Obama = $9.08. McCain = $8.51.

For some other states, the National Journal compiled the TV ad costs per vote here.

How Obama Won

A poll was done for Obama voters, outside their polling places and were asked questions.  Check out some of the answers.

Of course this is not too surprising if you watched any TV for the last two years and saw the biased coverage.

NRA’s Birthday!!!!!!

It’s its 137th

Dismayed by the lack of marksmanship shown by their troops, Union veterans Col. William C. Church and Gen. George Wingate formed the National Rifle Association in 1871. The primary goal of the association would be to “promote and encourage rifle shooting on a scientific basis,” according to a magazine editorial written by Church.

Obama’s groupies, they are all big fans of the Fairness Doctrine which they are dead set on reinstating it.  This is not a “Fair” its censorship, it blocks first amendment rights of all talk radio hosts, by telling basically telling them what to say and what not to say.

The Washington Post said in a 1987 editorial:

The truth is…that there is no ‘fairness’ whatever in the ‘fairness’ doctrine. On the contrary, it is a chilling federal attempt to compel some undefined ‘balance’ of what ideas radio and television news programs are to include….The ‘fairness doctrine’ undercuts free, independent, sound and responsive journalism — substituting governmental dictates. That is deceptive, dangerous and, in a democracy, repulsive.
