What went wrong? A year ago, he was king of the world. Now President Obama’s approval rating, according to CBS, has dropped to 46 percent — and his disapproval rating is the highest ever recorded by Gallup at the beginning of an (elected) president’s second year. A year ago, he was leader of a liberal ascendancy that would last 40 years (James Carville). A year ago, conservatism was dead (Sam Tanenhaus). Now the race to fill Ted Kennedy’s Senate seat in bluest of blue Massachusetts is surprisingly close, with a virtually unknown state senator bursting on the scene by turning the election into a mini-referendum on Obama and his agenda, most particularly health care reform.

The racial flap surrounding Harry Reid once again reveals the not-so-secret double-standard with regard to stupid racial comments: make one as a Republican and you’re toast, make one as a Democrat and it’s “time to move on to more important things.” How do Democrats get away with it? Besides an in-the-tank media willing to cover their behinds, Democrats have successfully maintained one of the biggest lies in American politics: they, and they alone, are the party looking out for black America’s interests. What interests? The maintenance of a victimist mentality and an expansion of the welfare state. In a sane world, the idea that helping people to remain dependent on government is something to be proud of, would be ridiculed for the insanity — make that racist insanity — it truly is.

Riding a wave of opposition to Democratic health-care reform, GOP upstart Scott Brown is leading in the U.S. Senate race, raising the odds of a historic upset that would reverberate all the way to the White House, a new poll shows. Although Brown’s 4-point lead over Democrat Martha Coakley is within the Suffolk University/7News survey’s margin of error, the underdog’s position at the top of the results stunned even pollster David Paleologos. “It’s a Brown-out,” said Paleologos, director of Suffolk’s Political Research Center. “It’s a massive change in the political landscape.” The poll shows Brown, a state senator from Wrentham, besting Coakley, the state’s attorney general, by 50 percent to 46 percent, the first major survey to show Brown in the lead. [If we can prevent all the dead people and ACORN clowns from voting multiple times next Tuesday Scott Brown just might pull this off but I have a sneaking suspicion boxes full of ballots for the Democrat Coakley will start magically showing up in trunks of cars, polling place restrooms and warehouses all over the state.

The news Web site The Daily Caller is reporting Republican Senate hopeful Scott Brown has raised at least $1 million every day this week, the bulk of which came from online donations. The report published yesterday cites “knowledgeable sources.” Brown spokesman Felix Browne issued the following statement about the report to the Herald: “Thanks to an outpouring of grassroots support, we have the ability to pay our bills and get our message out. We’ll report our finances at the appropriate time.” Brown is locked in a tight race with his Democratic rival Attorney General Martha Coakley heading into the special U.S. Senate election on Tuesday.

Here in Massachusetts, as well as in Washington, a growing sense of gloom is setting in among Democrats about the fortunes of Democratic Senate candidate Martha Coakley. “I have heard that in the last two days the bottom has fallen out of her poll numbers,” says one well-connected Democratic strategist. In her own polling, Coakley is said to be around five points behind Republican Scott Brown. “If she’s not six or eight ahead going into the election, all the intensity is on the other side in terms of turnout,” the Democrat says. “So right now, she is destined to lose.” [The Democrats have “owned” Massachusetts for so long there is a very good possibility they don’t have a very good, reliable cheating infrastructure in place so Brown very well may have an excellent chance of being the first Republican Senator from this state in decades…ed]
The story of the Amiraults of Massachusetts, and of the prosecution that had turned the lives of this thriving American family to dust, was well known to the world by the year 2001. It was well known, especially, to District Attorney Martha Coakley, who had by then arrived to take a final, conspicuous, role in a case so notorious as to assure that the Amiraults’ name would be known around the globe. The Amiraults were a busy, confident trio, grateful in the way of people who have found success after a life of hardship. Violet had reared her son Gerald and daughter Cheryl with help from welfare, and then set out to educate herself. The result was the triumph of her life—the Fells Acres school—whose every detail Violet scrutinized relentlessly. Not for nothing was the pre-school deemed by far the best in the area, with a long waiting list for admission. All of it would end in 1984, with accusations of sexual assault and an ever-growing list of parents signing their children on to the case. [Meet Scott Brown’s Democrat challenger Martha Coakley…ed]

Yesterday, I reported on the horrific rape of a two-year old by Keith Winfield in 2005 in Massachusetts. Then-Middlesex County DA Martha Coakley failed to take action to bring charges against Mr. Winfield. Today, the story takes another turn. In part II of the Curling-Iron Rapist Case, let’s look at two of the key players in the case: The lawyer for the family of the raped toddler, Larry Frisoli, and his brother and legal partner, Frank Frisoli.

Former Lieutenant Governor Jane Norton has opened up an even wider lead over incumbent Democrat Michael Bennet in this year’s U.S. Senate race in Colorado. A new Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of likely voters in Colorado finds the top Republican candidate with a 12-point lead over Bennet, 49% to 37%. Three percent (3%) like some other candidate, and 11% remain undecided. The results are little changed if Bennet is defeated in the state’s Democratic Primary by former state House Speaker Andrew Romanoff. In a match-up with Romanoff, Norton also leads by 12 points, 47% to 35%. Five percent (5%) prefer another candidate, and 14% are undecided.

Republican claims about increased momentum for this year’s midterm elections are just “hype and hyperbole,” House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) claimed Friday. In a fundraising e-mail to Democratic supporters, Pelosi said that the Democratic agenda is moving the country forward and the Democrats toward victory this fall. “Republicans are in full blown ‘spin mode’ attacking the President and claiming he has lost support,” she wrote. “But that is just hype and hyperbole. You and I know better — together we are moving America forward.” [Sounds like Nancy Pelosi very well could be the poster geezer for proof that botox injections do indeed have a serious effect on brain cell activity…ed]
Republican candidates have now posted a nine-point lead over Democrats on the Generic Congressional Ballot for the first two weeks of 2010. The latest national telephone survey shows that 45% now would vote for their district’s Republican congressional candidate while 36% would opt for his or her Democratic opponent. Last week, Republicans started the New Year with a nine-point lead, their biggest in several years, while support for Democrats fell to its lowest level in years. Republicans have held the lead on the ballot for over four months now. [Stick that in your medical marijuana pipe and smoke it Nancy Pelosi…ed]
Assemblyman Nathan Fletcher is a smooth-talking lawmaker – a talent that came in handy this week when the San Diego Republican persuaded a man not to hang himself on a downtown Sacramento bike bridge over the American River. The Sacramento Police Department confirmed Thursday that two passers-by intervened Wednesday after spotting the man with one end of a rope tied around his neck and the other around a bikeway commonly known as the “Pipe Bridge” in northern Sacramento near North 18th Street. Their names were not immediately available. Fletcher said he was jogging in the area about 1 p.m. Wednesday when he spotted the suicidal man, then asked a passer-by to summon police and approached the distraught subject along with a homeless man who called himself “Squirrel.” [Imagine if it was Nancy Pelosi who came across this suicidal man.

In a city full of conflicts of interest, this one ranks near the top of the “Most Blatant Ever.” Robin Roy is a senior executive of Serious Materials, a California-based windows maker that was virtually unknown within its industry until last year when President Obama and Vice President Joe Biden began praising it as, in the latter’s words, the “poster child of green industry.” Actually, Serious Materials is at the center of a grubby new conflicts of interest scandal in the White House because Assistant Secretary of Energy Cathy Zoi, Roy’s wife, just happens to be the Obama appointee in charge of the government’s crash weatherization program. The Freedom Foundation of Minnesota and its investigative reporter Tom Steward has been looking into the Zoi-Roy connection for several months. Here’s what they found: [More of the same from this corrupt as hell Obama administration. Why isn’t the lamestream press all over this blatant scam? Yes, that would be a rhetorical question…ed]
The Obama administration recently approved base salaries of $900,000, plus $3.1 million in deferred payments, and another $2 million in bonuses for the CEOs of the failed mortgage giants Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. When asked if tax dollars should pay those bonuses or if they should be cancelled, the chairman of the House Financial Services Committee, Rep. Barney Frank (D-Mass.), told CNSNews.com that the bonuses were “too high” but “nothing can be done now.” The $6-million compensation packages were approved by the Treasury Department and the Federal Housing Finance Agency, and made public on Dec. 24, 2009, Christmas Eve.

The White House wants to impose a stiff new tax on banks to punish them for their role in the financial meltdown. That’ll really get them lending again … won’t it? We have to admit we’re a little perplexed. The White House and Congress have complained over and over again about the banks’ “failure to lend” to get the economy moving. Yet they now want to impose massive new taxes on the industry through an Orwellian “Financial Crisis Responsibility Fee” — supposedly to recoup TARP bailout funds and rein in bank risk-taking. “When you try to value the degree of benefit that they received from this exceptional government assistance … this is essentially the least they could do,” a senior White House official told the Washington Post.

Cass Sunstein has long been one of Barack Obama’s closest confidants. Often mentioned as a likely Obama nominee to the Supreme Court, Sunstein is currently Obama’s head of the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs where, among other things, he is responsible for “overseeing policies relating to privacy, information quality, and statistical programs.” In 2008, while at Harvard Law School, Sunstein co-wrote a truly pernicious paper proposing that the U.S. Government employ teams of covert agents and psuedo-“independent” advocates to “cognitively infiltrate” online groups and websites — as well as other activist groups — which advocate views that Sunstein deems “false conspiracy theories” about the Government. This would be designed to increase citizens’ faith in government officials and undermine the credibility of conspiracists.

The following was written by a well-known news anchor from a top-10, big city station: For the last 30 years, I’ve devoted the better part of my life to frightening you, trying my best to make you believe that you are weak, vulnerable, dependent and at risk. I know what’s good for you. You don’t. I’ve tried hard for three decades to defy the laws of nature and return you to infancy, cradled in your mommy’s arm, suckling at her breast, all warm and cozy, not a care in the world.

Voting Democrat is associated with over 150,000 cancer deaths every year, according to the Hoven Institute for Studies Just as Valid as Studies Cited by Democrats. (SNIP) Harry Reid said, “On average, an American dies from lack of health insurance every ten minutes.” If he can say that, then I can say, “On average, an American dies from voting Democrat every 3.5 minutes.” Both statements are equally valid.

Sarah Palin was a smart hire for Fox News Channel, judging by the ratings for her debut on “The O’Reilly Factor” on Tuesday. The former Alaska governor’s first appearance as an analyst drew 3.954 million viewers — more than everything else on other cable new shows combined in the 8 p.m. hour. CNN’s “Campbell Brown” placed second with 999,000 total viewers, MSNBC’s “Countdown with Keith Olbermann” placed third with 906,000 total viewers and HLN’s “Nancy Grace” brought up the rear with 704,000.
