It's Romney's Election to Lose

Last week’s devastatingly bad jobs report - especially including the downward revisions for the March and April numbers as well as the downward measurement of first quarter GDP to 1.5% - will now fundamentally alter the remaining five months of the 2012 presidential and congressional elections. President Obama is now doomed to follow in the footsteps of Jimmy Carter and George H.W. Bush as failed presidents who get swept out of office primarily because the economy was in a downward spiral when their re-election came about.

Soon – within weeks – Mitt Romney will begin to move ahead of President Obama in some of the public polls. And, similarly, in state polls in the dozen swing battleground states he will close the already-shrinking gap. The result will be a virtual tie inside the Electoral College before the conventions at the end of August and early September. But all the momentum now belongs to Romney. The jobs report coupled with the anti-Democrat, anti-union blowout in Wisconsin has put wind back into the GOP’s sails – and deflated Obama. [more...]

"Saved or Created" Union Jobs

President Obama is proud to say that he has either saved or created anywhere from 2-4 million new jobs. What the President doesn’t mention is that a huge chunk of those jobs were union jobs. He gave tons of stimulus dollars to the teacher’s union, police union, fire union, auto union... heck, if you just had the word union at the end of your group, you were sure to get a payout from the federal government. The problem is that the people that run their unions have run amok with waste, fraud, abuse, and corruption. It is that very abuse that keeps the wages of their workers low but union perks very high. However, it is the union leaders that time and again deliver votes to the Democratic Party. That’s why the union bosses are more than happy to receive their “fair share.” [more...]

'Dumb & Dumber': The USA vs. France

Even though it’s been proven here and abroad that you can’t succeed if you spend more money than you have, France’s new president is much like President Obama in his commitment to ideology over solutions. France’s new president, Francois Hollande, has done just that and reduced the retirement age from 62 to 60. It’ll be paid for with higher taxes. Sounds a lot like the same thing that President Obama has tried and continues to suggest to help America get back on track. For some reason many leaders think that you can get out of debt by going further into debt. That only makes sense in fairytales and dreams. [more...]

Disney Partners with Michelle Obama - Announces Junk Food Ban
By James Hirsen

Bob Iger, CEO of Disney, announced new company food policies, which correspond with First Lady Michelle Obama’s public cause. Disney, the parent company of ABC, will be revising menus at its theme parks and resorts, and will also be curbing the advertising of junk food on its television and radio programs aimed at children. “With this new initiative, Disney is doing what no major media company has ever done before in the U.S. - and what I hope every company will do going forward,” Obama said in a statement. Iger is a longtime supporter and donor for Democratic candidates, having made, among other contributions, a $35,800 donation to the Obama Victory Fund 2012, according to Federal Election Commission records.
