Re: ¿Qué temas son más importantes para ti?

PART 2

Taken together, these are hardly the enthusiasms of  a   Democrat  circa 2012, and they wouldn’t be defensible in a  Democratic   primary. But they  are the thoughts and values of  ten years of  learning,  and seeing things I once  thought were  true fall into  disarray. So, if I  were to leave the sidelines,  it  would be as a  member of the Republican  Party that is  fighting the drift in this   country in a way that comes  closest  to my way of thinking: wearing a  Democratic  label no longer   matches what I know about my country and  its    possibilities.

Davis’s political evolution may not be   that   surprising. He was the only member of the Congressional  Black  Caucus to  vote  against Obamacare. He ran for the  Democratic  nomination for Alabama  governor in  2010 as a  conservative. After  losing the nomination, Davis  announced he  was  becoming a political  independent. His political   commentary began  popping up at  places like National Review   Online, criticizing Democrats   for the same reasons he does  today—the  reliance on identity politics, the  lack  of respect  for faith institutions,  support for affirmative  action, and a  hostile  relationship with business  and   entrepreneurs.

It seems it was only a matter of time  before   Davis  made the change official. Still, the facts are  that a rising star,  a  black  Democrat from the Deep South, and  an early supporter of  Barack Obama  found  himself on the  outside of the modern Democratic  party, looking in,  and  disliking  what he saw.

Davis's shift differs greatly from that of his  fellow   former  Democratic congressman from Alabama, Parker  Griffith, who  switched  parties to  the GOP in 2009 when it  looked more likely that  Griffith could  win his primary  as a  Republican than as a Democrat.  Griffith was rewarded  for what  appeared as,  and most likely was, a  political calculation with  a  resounding defeat in the  2010  Republican primary. Should Davis decide to   run for Congress  in  Virginia, Republican voters may greet his  apparently   thoughtful and  principled decision with more   cheer.

Meanwhile, in Pennsylvania, a state   Democratic   committeewoman named Jo Ann Nardelli has also switched  to  the GOP, citing  her  Catholic faith and President Obama’s  recent  announcement that he  supports gay  marriage.  The Altoona Mirror reports:

Jo Ann has been a  Catholic   Democrat  her entire life

One of Blair  County's   prominent  Democrats, Jo Ann Nardelli, said Wednesday  she has switched  her  voter  registration to Republican because  she can no longer  support  Democratic  initiatives like  same-SX  marriage.

"As the Democratic Party has taken the stand   for   same-SX marriage, then I must make a stand on my faith  that  marriage is  between  a man and a woman. God's principles  for life  never change. His  guidelines, given  in Scripture,  produce fruitful  lives when you follow  them,"  Nardelli  said while making the  announcement of her party   switch in the Blair County   Courthouse.

She said she was a member   of  the  Democratic party for 40    years.

DA EL TIRO DE GRACIA BILL CLINTON A LA REELECION DE OBAMA

ENSALZA BILL CLINTON EL "STERLING" RECORD EMPRESARIAL DE ROMNEY

Video: Romney's Qualifications, Business Experience Lauded by...Bill Clinton

By Guy Benson 6/1/2012

 

Just when you thought yesterday couldn't have gotten any worse for the Obama campaign, a certain former president appeared on CNN and asserted that Mitt Romney is qualified to be president, thanks to his leadership as governor and "sterling" career in the private sector:

 



 

This could deliver something of a coup de grace to the Obama campaign's all-Bain-all-the-time attack strategy.  President Obama stated that this campaign will "be about" Romney's "vampire capitalism."  Bill Clinton, Deval Patrick, and at least a dozen other Democrats have dissented from that view. Publicly. And we're still awaiting an explanation for why a handful of companies failing after Romney left Bain = greedy and evil, whereas Solyndra and other taxpayer-financed benefactors of cronyism shutting down = honest mistakes.  Enlighten us, liberals.  Oh, and by the way, Romney has jumped ahead in Ohio, Virginia, Florida and North Carolina.

BLS Confirms Wisconsin Positive Jobs Numbers, Major Blow To Left Meme

Townhall.com ^ | June 1, 2012 | Tony Katz

 

The Bureau of Labor Statistics agrees that reforms put in place by Gov. Scott Walker (R) and the Wisconsin legislature have resulted in a net gain of 23,000 jobs. This comes after Democratic candidate Mayor Tom Barrett and others accused Walker of "cooking the books" on the number of jobs created in the state.

According to the Post Crescent, the BLS confirmed the numbers put out by Walker over two weeks ago. This has been a major focus of the unions and Progressives who are looking to recall Walker since he instituted Act 10, which curtailed the ability of public employee unions to engage in collective bargaining. In addition to the jobs increase, Wisconsin has eliminated its $3.6 billion deficit without raising taxes, and is currently enjoying a $150 million surplus.

Luke Hilgeman, Wisconsin state director of Americans For Prosperity, said that the confirmation of the numbers coincides with the feelings of Wisconsinites:

 

We saw it in the Marquette poll yesterday, where the numbers (on faith in the economy) went from 20% just 10 days ago, to 38%. People know the truth. They know the reforms are working. There is more prosperity on the horizon, thanks to the budget reforms.

It is another failed message from the left. One of the messages they tried to drive from the beginning; (Walker's reforms) would drive down private sector growth, (people would) lose their homes and their cars. None of that happened. They still have great jobs and still have their pensions.

At rallies across Wisconsin, people brought signs showing the amount of money they have saved because of the budget reforms. Progressives say they (suddenly!) are not worried. Even former North Dakota Sen. Byron Dorgan referred to it as a "food fight," stating:

 

This exists in Wisconsin. This is not a message for anybody anywhere. It's not a harbinger of what might happen between Obama and Romney at all...this is a food fight in Wisconsin.....I know a bit about what the Governor did, I know a bit about the Koch brothers who are sending a lot of money up in that direction...

Move along. Nothing to see here. Blame the evil Koch Brothers. The people of Wisconsin see it all, and see it much differently.

Job Report Is Catastrophic For President Obama

Investors.com ^ | June 1,2012 | Larry Kudlow

 

Where's the corporate tax reform that would lower rates and broaden the base and end the double-taxation of the overseas profits of American companies? A business tax cut would help enormously, but it's nowhere in sight. Obama is too busy trashing Bain Capital profits and Romney's business career, both of which, by the way, have recently been praised by former President Bill Clinton. (It was Clinton who lowered investment taxes and presided over an economic boom.)

A second uncertainty facing businesses is the Supreme Court decision on ObamaCare due in a few weeks. If all those crazy tax-and-regulation mandates are deemed unconstitutional, it's Katy bar the door as businesses put profits to work and hire. But they move without a court decision.

And now European companies are withdrawing money from local banks and investing in dollars (especially through Treasury bonds that are yielding an incredibly low 1.5%).

But the rapid rise of King Dollar is generating commodity deflation, which is a deterrent to manufacturing production. According to the May ISM report, manufacturing is slowing.

The Fed may yet **noallow** a new quantitative easing to stop commodity deflation and accommodate the gigantic worldwide dollar demand. But the merits of this move are dubious. On the other hand, extending the Bush tax cuts would stop the economic and job slide and reestablish certainty.

In fact, all countries should move to the supply side with lower tax rates to spur economic-growth incentives. Europe, China and Latin America ought to read Ronald Reagan's speeches and examine his actions when he faced a similar crisis 30 years ago. It would be an hour or two well spent.

The Lowlights Of Obamanomics

The Obama Record

IBD Editorial 6/3/2012



The Obama Record: May’s weak jobs report further confirms the president’s policies are failing to help the economy. This is, indeed, the worst recovery since the Depression.

Negative superlatives associated with this presidency keep piling up. The toll so far:

• The share of Americans who’ve been out of work a long time — now at 42% of the unemployed — is the highest since the Great Depression (source: Labor Department).

• The proportion of the civilian working-age population actually working, at 58%, is the smallest since the Carter era (Labor Department).

• Growth in nonfarm payroll jobs since the recovery began in June 2009 is the slowest of any comparable recovery since World War II (Hoover Institution).

• The rate of new business startups — the engine of job growth — has plunged to an all-time low of 7.87% of all businesses (Census Bureau).

• 3 in 10 young adults can’t find jobs and live with their parents, highest since the 1950s (Pew Research).

• 54% of bachelor’s degree-holders under the age of 25 are jobless or underemployed, the highest share in decades (Northeastern University).

• Black teen unemployment, now at 37%, is near Depression-era highs (Labor Department).

• Almost 1 in 6 Americans are now poor — the highest ratio in 30 years — and the total number of poor, at 49.1 million, is the largest on record (Census).

• The share of Hispanics in poverty has topped that of blacks for the first time, 28.2% to 25.4% (Census).

• The number of Americans on food stamps — 45 million recipients, or 1 in 7 residents — also is the highest on record (Congressional Budget Office).

• Total government dependency — defined as the share of Americans receiving one or more federal benefit payments — is now at 47%, highest ever (Hoover).

• The share of Americans paying no income tax, at 49.5%, is the highest ever (Heritage Foundation, IRS).

• The national homeownership rate, now at 65.4%, is the lowest in 15 years (Census).

•The 30-point gap between black and white Americans who own their own homes is the widest in two decades and one of the widest on record (Census).

• Federal spending, now at 23.4% of GDP, is the highest since WWII (CBO).

• Excluding defense and interest payments, spending is the highest in American history, at 17.6% of the economy (First Trust Economics).

• The federal debt, at 69% of GDP, is the highest since just after WWII (CBO).

• The U.S. budget deficit, now at 9.5% of the economy, is the highest since WWII (CBO).

• U.S. Treasury debt has been downgraded for the first time in history, meaning the U.S. government no longer ranks among risk-free borrowers (S&P).

This is what Obamanomics has wrought. Fiscal promiscuity. Trickle-up poverty. Shared misery.

GREAT DAY FOR AMERICA: SCOTT WALKER WON AND WON BIG

06/05/2012

With 21percent of precincts reporting, Scott Walker holds a  lead of 60% to challenger Tom Barrett's 40%.

Despite Unions pushing mightily against him and President  Obama... tweeting his support for Barrett, Scott Walker has won decisively. Now  he can concentrate on bring Wisconsin further into prosperity.

What the implications will be for November can only be  surmised. However, there is no doubt that Walker's win is a stunning mandate  against the President and in favor of responsible government.

More Good News for  Freedom

By Carol Platt Liebau

6/6/2012

 

Every conservative is smiling about last night's results in  Wisconsin.

 
But -- hard as it is to believe -- there's reason to hope  that the message about how government employees are driving fiscal crisis has  sunk in even in California.
 
There, citizens of San Jose passed some serious pension  reform, which among other improvements requires city workers either  to contribute up to 16% more of their salary to continue with their current  pension plan or else choose a more affordable plan; requires voter approval for  future pension increases; and limits disability retirement to those who  disabilities actually prevent them from working.
 
Predictably, the government union -- subsidized by our tax  money and supposedly created to "serve us" -- threatens to sue the  city.
 
 
The best news?  These results signal that voters have  absorbed the message that small government advocates have been trying to spread:  There is no reason that government workers should have the "right" to a  lifestyle that completely insulates them from the impact of government  overspending and imprudence -- an impact that affects all other Americans.   Enough with the calls for "sacrifice" from everyone else in order to subsidize  an entitled class.

Re: ¿Qué temas son más importantes para ti?



 

On Fox News Channel’s “Special Report” on Tuesday, syndicated columnist  Charles Krauthammer called former President Bill Clinton a “double  agent,” saying that Clinton is not doing  President Barack Obama any favors.

During the “All-Star Panel” segment, Krauthammer said Clinton’s recent  remarks praising former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney’s business record were  contradictory to the Obama re-election campaign’s strategy.

“Well, I think he really is now a bull in a china shop,” Krauthammer said. “And there’s a lot of crockery being destroyed. It’s very clear. When he said  the thing about ‘the sterling business record,’ that was extremely undermining  because, of course, it contradicted the whole roll-out strategy of the Obama  campaign, which was to portray Romney as vulture capitalist.”

“So it undoes that, but I think it had broader implications,” he continued. “I think what was overlooked is the fact Romney met the threshold for the  presidency. That’s extremely important in a re-election campaign.”

Krauthammer likened the scenario to former incumbent President Jimmy Carter’s  effort to disparage the credibility of his challenger Ronald Reagan, which fell  short after the debates during the 1980 presidential election.

“A re-election campaign is a referendum on the president, unless there are  questions about the challenger,” he continued. “In 1980, a pure referendum on  the [Jimmy] Carter record would have had Carter losing by a lot. But Carter was  actually ahead until very late in the race. And the reason was people had  painted Reagan as an extremist, a looney, a guy who didn’t know much and who  could start nuclear war. Then you had Reagan in the debates — this sort of ‘aw,  shucks,’ he was congenial guy and the election was over. Once Reagan met the  threshold for being presidential, it was all about a referendum on Carter and  Carter lost.”

“And here is Clinton — the biggest surrogate, the most popular of all  Democrats — saying that Romney meets the threshold for presidency, which means  the election should be — will be — a referendum on Obama and the record, and it  is not a good one,” Krauthammer continued. “I think that was what most deeply  undermined Obama.”

Later in the segment, Krauthammer made the point it wasn’t clear whose side  Clinton is on.

“Loose cannon? He’s a double agent,” he said. “What is the message? Bill  Clinton says elect Obama because, at the end of a second term, you might begin  to be getting out of recession? I wouldn’t run on that.”

 

CLINTON VS OBAMA

Clinton se enfrenta a Obama y afirma que en medio de Barack's recesión no se puede aumentar los impuestos a "los ricos" y por lo tanto hay que extender la rebaja de impuestos hechas por Bush so pena de provocar una gran depresión como la de FDR  en los años 30.
