President Obama, whose meager 42% approval rating in the Keystone State is cause for worry, will be speaking at Scranton High School Wednesday afternoon. His topic will be the moribund American Jobs Act. Will anyone bring a dead horse for the President to beat? I have a Planned Parenthood PAC Board meeting so I won’t be able to cover this event.
George W. Bush and Tony Blair have been found guilty of war crimes in Malaysia. Why are they so far ahead of us on human rights issues?
OFA/DNC has a new ad called Mitt v. Mitt attacking Romney for his flip flops. Democrats are turning the tables on the GOP for the Kerry campaign.
Addicting Info (I love this site) has 18 Newt quotes which will destroy his campaign. A few of the choice ones:
3. “The idea that a congressman would be tainted by accepting money from private industry or private sources is essentially a socialist argument.”
~Newt Gingrich, arguing that it’s okay for politicians to be bought and paid for.
5. “The problem isn’t too little money in political campaigns, but not enough.”
~Newt Gingrich on campaign finance reform.
12. “She isn’t young enough or pretty enough to be the President’s wife.”
~Newt Gingrich, talking about his first wife after divorcing her.
I keep seeing so-called intelligent people blaming both sides for the collapse of the Super Committee. Democrats put both Social Security and Medicare on the table along with $600 billion in cuts but Republicans were only willing to allow $3 billion in tax increases. So how do you blame both sides for that? The issue is the effect Grover Norquist has had on the decline of the nation and American civilization. He is our unelected, unappointed tyrant.
Now he has Tom Corbett by the balls over his no tax pledge. The miniscule 1% drilling extraction tax, 75% of which would go to local governments to pay for new roads and stuff is now prohibited. Norquist has now decreed that it is a tax and against the interests of Pennsylvanians. Isn’t it bad enough these energy companies are drilling in our public lands for OUR natural resources and poisoning our aquifers in the process? Isn’t it enough that they’re using 30 million gallons of water per well and exploding them resulting in toxic fracking fluid flowing into our waterways? Now we can’t even tax them 1%!
It’s time for Tom Corbett to step down if Norquist is really running this state.
The worst part of the bill in Harrisburg is how it dictates local zoning and ordinances. You and your local elected officials will now have NO say about what goes on in your community regarding fracking.
