Popular Opinion Turns Against Republicans On Health Care?

By Justin Gardner | Related entries in Barack, Democrats, Health Care, Obama, Republicans

I’m starting to notice some poll numbers that suggest an interesting trend. Basically, Americans aren’t necessarily happy with Obama’s health care plans, but they trust Republicans a LOT less. Take a recent CBS/NY Times poll as an example: 52% of Americans trust Obama to make the right decisions for health, while only 27% feel Republicans […]

There’s A Birther Infomercial?

By Justin Gardner | Related entries in Barack, Crazy, Obama, Republicans, Video

Why yes…yes there is. And all they’re asking you to do is give them $30 so they can send all 50 state attorney generals a fax demanding Obama show his birth certificate. Fun fact: this is actually running on a CBS affiliate in Texas and other locales across the country. In related news, if you […]

Why 2010 Will Not Be Like 1994

By Justin Gardner | Related entries in Congress, Democrats, Polls, Republicans

It’s pretty easy…the only people that voters like less than Congressional Democrats and Congressional Republicans. Add in the facts that Republicans have no coherent plan, no definitive leadership and are allowing right wing pundits to organize and promote this Tea Party movement and you have a reality where Dems might actually pick up seats next […]

Drudge Lies About Iran Nuclear Story

By Justin Gardner | Related entries in Foreign Policy, Iran, Lies, Media, Nuclear

There’s a difference between sensationalism and lying…and the above is a lie. The US has known that Iran had a second “secret” nuclear plant since at least 2002-2003. Here’s more from The Policy Page: The truth is that Iran only decided to reveal the existence of the uranium enrichment operation to the International Atomic Energy […]

I found the following hilarious and I honestly don’t think it’s doctored. Yes, he’s an alien. Or a God. Or a Hawaiian. Take your pick. :-) Tweet

Glenn Beck Can’t Answer Question About “White Culture?”

By Justin Gardner | Related entries in Media, Partisan Hacks, Race, Video

One of the most intellectually dishonest political commentators is at it again. What’s weird is his reason for not answering the question. Basically, he says there’s no way he can define “white culture” without getting himself in trouble. And that begs the question…why make a statement that claims Obama has a deep seated hatred for […]

News Headlines for Independent Voters 9/24/09

By Nancy Hanks | Related entries in Independents, News, Obama, Politics

Independent voters are at the center (though not necessarily centr-IST!) of the current firestorm going on in the country over healthcare, socialism, war, and nearly every other issue around. I was reading Jonathan Weisman’s article in the WSJ yesterday (see below) and was struck by some of the questions that the NBC/WSJ poll asked voters. […]

Ed Schultz Claims Republicans Want Voters To Die

By Justin Gardner | Related entries in Media, Partisan Hacks, Republicans, Video, WTF?

Remember when I was talking about impotent rage on the left and the right in a post about Glenn Beck a couple days ago? Well, now we’ve got an analog to that and it comes in the form of this shameful screed by one of MSNBC’s newest commentators… The Republicans lie! They want to see […]

Huckabee Leading Contender For 2012 Contest

By Justin Gardner | Related entries in Barack, Huckabee, Obama, Palin, Polls, Romney

Public Policy Polling pitted the top Republicans (including Jeb Bush) against Obama in a hypothetical matchup and found that the former Arkansas Governor’s folksy ways puts him at the top of the pack. And this makes sense. Huckabee is amiable, has some ideas that at least sound new (get rid of the IRS, FAIR tax) […]
