BOB SCHIEFFER: RIGHT WING RACIST

I\’m sort of assuming that anyone who knows a thing about Bob Schieffer would dispute the above title. But not the hate-crowd of regular commenters over at one of my “favorite” (in a manner of speaking) hard-left web sites, crooksandliars.com.  A good many of them have decided that Mr. Schieffer is  both of those ugly things. Why?  How did a man...

THE QUOTE OF THE DAY

Ken Berwitz Today\’s quote comes to us from advertising executive and “Morning Joe” regular, Donny Deutsch.  Mr. Deutsch understands that Republicans are doing extremely well this year by making the election a referendum on President Obama.  But he cannot fathom why this would be; why Mr. Obama is so low in the polls, when he\’s doing such a bang-up...

DID BARACK OBAMA DIVERT FUNDS FOR EBOLA?

If more money had been available to research the cause, and cure, for ebola, would we be further along now than we are?  Common sense tells us the answer is probably yes. That is why President Obama and his fellow Democrats spent a considerable effort during this campaign season to convince voters that Republicans, by underfunding research on ebola, are a cause – maybe the...

MIDTERM ELECTION? WHAT MIDTERM ELECTION?

It is 10 minutes into the Today Show, and not one mention of the fact that there are midterm elections tomorrow – elections which can change the course of President Obama\’s final two years in office.  In fact, throughout this entire election cycle there has been virtually no mention at all of these elections on Today. Astonishing?  Only if you believe Today would be as...

A QUICK QUESTION ABOUT FIVE NAPKIN BURGER

Apropos of nothing political…. My wife and I were in Manhattan yesterday, and – braving the ugly cold, raw, wet weather – were walking up 9th Avenue.  As we passed Five Napkin Burger (at 45th St.), I asked her “How come they only give you one napkin?  Shouldn\’t they either give you five of them, or have some kind of “five napkin” reference...

WOMEN\’S ISSUES AS A SENATE LOSER

I have to admit there is a certain amusement value to seeing Colorado\’s Democrat Senator Mark Udall being reamed for tying his candidacy heavily to “women\’s issues” such as abortion and contraception. If the polls are accurate – let\’s always remember that they often are not – Udall is on the cusp of losing to Republican challenger Cory Gardner. ...

THE QUOTE OF THE DAY

Today\’s quote comes to us from Grammy-winning singer Patti Austin.  This is how she tried to convince a rally of mostly Black citizens in  Georgia to vote on election day: “There\’sa lot of an angry white men out there.  Andthey\’re old. And they\’re trying to hang on to their pots of gold.So go vote.” This was presumably done in the...

ARE ILLEGAL ALIENS BRINGING IN ENTEROVIRUS D68?

This is going to be a very short blog on my part.  I am going to refer you to Neil Munro\’s truly unsettling article at dailycaller.com, and suggest that you read it to make your own judgment. Here is just a taste: The deadlyEV-D68 enterovirus epidemic, which struck thousands of kids this fall, waslikely propelled through America by President Barack Obama\’s decision to...

THE REPUBLICAN “ELECTION VIOLATION” LETTER

Ken Berwitz We have finally found a sleazy campaign strategy that the left wing blogosphere is up in arms about. I hope you don\’t think it\’s one of those overtly racist mailers which suggest, among other things, that if you don\’t vote Democrat Black children will be shot in the street.  That wasn\’t a problem to this crew. Nope, the problem is a mailer sent by...

CDC: CONFUSED, DAZED, CONTRADICTORY

October 29:  The CDC advises us that ebola can be spread by a sneeze, particularly if the sneeze droplets land on a hard surface (like, for example, a doorknob. October 31:  The CDC deletes the warning and advises us that there is “no evidence” ebola can be spread by a sneeze. When do our media call out this buffoonery – this riculous, dangerous buffoonery?  When...

DID THE OBAMACARE CANCELLATION NOTICES GO OUT?

 Legally, the notices to people losing their insurance coverage because it is not in compliance with ObamaCare must be available no less than 60 days in advance. Tomorrow – Sunday, November 2 – is the 60 day mark. Unless you happen to get Sunday mail deliveries, therefore, today is the last day this can be done by mail….and tomorrow is the last day...

IF THE ECONOMY IS IN SUCH GREAT SHAPE…..

….and voters consider it the most important issue of this midterm election… ….then why do the polls indicate that Republicans are poised to do so well on Tuesday? Here are a few possibilities: -Could it be that the recovery from 2009\’s recession (not “great recession” or “depression”, both terms having been floated to make Barack...

(NOT) RUNNING ON BARACK OBAMA\’S RECORD

The two major “achievements” of President Barack Obama\’s time in office are “The Affordable Care Act” – more commonly known as ObamaCare, and the so-called “stimulus package”, which was supposed to put countless shovel-ready jobs into play. We are at the end of the midterm campaign, almost 6 years after both were enacted. How many Democrats ran on...

THE RELEASE OF ANDREW TAHMOORESSI

Yesterday a Mexican judge ordered the immediate release of Marine Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi.  He has crossed the border and is now safely in the United States. Mr. Tahmooressi spent eight months in a Mexican jail – much of it in solitary confinement – for the “crime” of accidentally crossing the border while carrying weapons in his vehicle – by driving into a...
