1. As You Wake Up This Morning

Consider these points:(1) Just a few short weeks ago, Democrats were complaining that Republicans would rather talk about the Ground Zero Mosque than jobs. It’s gotten so bad for Democrats, they’d now rather talk about John Boehner’s tan than jobs.(2) Speaking of John Boehner, make no mistake that George Stephanapoulous remains a partisan hack. We know from the Politico that he has regular phone calls with Rahm Emanuel. So it comes as no surprise that he started questioning John Boehner about Boehner’s tan right about the time Democratic polling firm PPP makes a big stink about polling on Boehner’s tan and Obama mocks Boehner’s tan too.(3) All the people rushing to embrace the Ground Zero Mosque because of the Imam’s constitutional right sure are running just as quickly to shut down the moron pastor in Florida intent on burning korans. What’s good for the goose . . .(4) Democrats’ latest talking point is that they have more money in the bank that Republicans. It’s true. But it was also true when Bob McDonnell beat the Dems in Virginia. It was also true when Chris Christie beat the Dems in New Jersey. It was also true when Scott Brown beat the Dems in Massachusetts.Please click here for the rest of the post.

2. David Petraeus And The Koran Burnings

David Petraeus is right.That church burning the korans in Florida will incite muslims to kill Americans, particularly American soldiers.Why? Well, in part, because David Petraeus and the media have decided to magnify the event and guarantee it’ll be featured on the front page of every major newspaper in the Middle East.Let’s not, however, be fooled by the thinking that this act will incite Islamists in some special way. If Islamists did not have koran burnings to incite them to kill Americans, they would just find something else. Heck, they may go back to soldiers in Iraq using the koran for target practice.Please click here for the rest of the post.

3. Harry Reid’s Job Review

Harry Reid is saying he had nothing to do with the 14% unemployment in Nevada.But back in June, Reid was bragging about creating jobs.Now Harry Reid says, “My job is to create jobs.”So we have the Majority Leader of the United States Senate say it is his job to create jobs. The same man also says the lack of jobs is not his fault. And the state he represents in Congress has the highest unemployment in the country.It appears Mr. Reid wants all the credit, none of the blame, and has nothing to show for all his work taking credit for something that doesn’t exist.Looks like he should be fired.Please click here for the rest of the post.

4. Democratic hypocrisy on Fannie Mae/Freddie Mac.

This is a copy of a letter from 2004 House Democrats and sent to then-President George W Bush. In it, the signatories complained that the administration had taken a hard line with ‘housing-related government sponsored enterprises’ (GSEs) such as Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac by insisting on emphasizing fiscal prudence and responsible lending over increased affordable housing access.

5. Mayberry Throws Andy Griffith Out of Office

Just how bad is it for Democrats? Were an election held in Mayberry, Sheriff Andy would be toast.That’s right — Andy Griffith, chief North Carolina closer for the Democratic Party has seen his popularity crash 25%. Why?He volunteered to be the face of Obamacare.Please click here for the rest of the post.
