Economic growth is down again in the US, only 33% of Americans view the federal government favorably, and 20% of Americans self-identify as liberal. Are these facts related?

Meanwhile, the Secret Service “incident” in Colombia appears to not be an isolated event as Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano had previously stated. Investigations now find related pursuits within the Secret Service (giving its name an entirely new meaning) going back to early in the Clinton administration (maybe he wasn’t so bad, by comparison).

John Stossel pointed out in a Wall Street Journal article the TSA’s higher cost and significantly lower performance rate when compared to the private screeners at San Francisco International Airport. TSA Administrator John Pistole responded in the WSJ with a “revised” version of the study Stossel had cited, which led to Stossel firing back, pointing to further issues with the “study” used by the TSA.

Finally, don’t forget to help Mitt Romney select a running mate by voting in the Vice Presidential Championship today.

    Did Obama give a Gutsy Call or just pull a CYA?

    It’s Colombia (the country), not Columbia (the university, the river, or the “District of…”)…

    So this is kind of funny… Massachusetts CD caucuses were today, Ron Paul delegates took the following slots:

    cd1–2/3

    cd2–3/3

    cd3–3/3

    cd4 –Lost

    cd5–3/3

    cd6–2/3

    cd7–3/3

    cd8–Lost

    cd9–?? 

    So thus far 16 of the 27 at stake here went to Ron Paul… obviously they are bound delegates so they have to vote for Romney on the first ballot… but it should show you what kind of influence Paul supporters will have at the RNC. We will be shaping the future of the party. :)

      18 of 27 was the final count after counting CD9 in Massachusetts.

      Lousiana caucuses are today and it looks like we’re going to sweep those so should be able to seat 30 or so RNC delegates for Paul in that state.

      Also 4/6 so far in Virginia from District 4 and 9.

         And the Paul delegates get 4.5 out of 6 the LA CD districts which means we shall control the state convention. Good stuff.

          Never underestimate what the RNC can do to protect their choice.
