There is so much silly about Obama's new attack ad on Mitt Romney above -- I'll post about Obama subsidizing overseas manufacturing later -- but the attack on Romney's Swiss bank account is the dumbest part. And, frankly, Obama isn't the type of guy I would expect to make a big deal about Swiss banks. Consider that Obama appointed as IRS Chief Counsel William J. Wilkins, a former lobbyist for the Swiss Bankers Association (despite Obama's claims that he has "excluded lobbyists from policy making jobs"). Also, Obama's No. 2 White House aide, Mona Sutphen, has cashed out to Swiss Bank UBS. via Obama's Swiss banks | Campaign 2012 | Washington Examiner.
By Charlie Cook Regular readers of this column know that in analyzing the 2012 presidential race, I have been preoccupied—some would say obsessed—with the state and direction of the U.S. economy. Presidential elections have many moving parts and can turn on many things, but rarely is a single factor more important than the economy when an incumbent is up for reelection. The latest NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll, conducted among 1,000 adults from April 13-17, supports that view. Overall, 49 percent said they approve of the job that President Obama is doing, and 46 percent said they disapprove. The poll, conducted by Democrat Peter Hart and Republican Bill McInturff, pegs Obama’s approval rating just 1 point higher than the current averages by RealClearPolitics and Huffpost’s [...]
By Wes Vernon It is with a mixture of caution and fascination that one reviews a book by Michael Savage. Some toxic controversies in which he has been embroiled transcend his worldview (about which some have questioned). Consider, however, that the British government outrageously has denied him entry into its kingdom and that some 10 million Americans are drawn to his radio talkshow. Like him or not, he is not to be ignored. In Trickle Down Tyranny: Crushing Obama's Dream of the Socialist States of America, the author makes the case that — unlike Obama's 43 predecessors (good and bad) who merely made mistakes — this president is suspect of deliberately attempting to bring down the United States. Back to basics "The next president must love America" is Savage's premise. [...]
Karl at Hot Air and others recording their objections at Twittercaught Politifact being two-faced in deciding who gets the “Truth-O-Meter” text. As Karl notes: ”PolitiFact rated the story about the Romneys transporting the family dog on the roof of their car as ‘Mostly True.’ And PolitiFact rated the story about former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee frying squirrels in a popcorn poppersimply ‘True.’” But in tackling the topic of President Obama’s boyhood appetite, even though the item is in the web site’s “Truth-O-Meter” directory (URL — www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/article/2012/apr/20/context-obama-dog-eating-indonesia/), it kept the Truth-O-Meter in the closet, and only lamely reproduced some of the verbiage from Obama’s Dreams of My Father, introduced [...]

Clinton Supporters claim Obama is not a Natural Born Citizen and was registered as a Muslim several times during his lifetime. By Albert N. Milliron, Editor, Politisite.com There is a group that continues to spread that John McCain is not a natural born citizen of the United States. His father was a military man and he was born in a hospital in Panama. Those who argue this point state that the Constitution states that eligibility to be the President of the United States requires that one be born in a U.S. State or territory. Why most constitutional scholars have dismissed this argument as a previous presidential candidates were born under the same conditions. There are those who still push the McCain is not a natural Born citizen and is ineligible to be the President of the United [...]
