    Day By Day November 15, 2010 – No.3Dream

    Day By Day by Chris Muir

    African-American voters support the Democratic Party over 9:1 in elections and yet when one of their own seek to run for the number two (minority) leadership position in the House, they are asked to step aside for party unity. What a joke.

    Rep. James Clyburn says he is in favor of a plan laid out by U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi in which Clyburn would become assistant leader, a new position that would preserve his No. 3 ranking in the party.

    Pelosi is seeking to remain the top House Democrat when they become the minority party next year.

    “Should I receive the privilege of serving as House Democratic Leader, I will be very honored to nominate our outstanding colleague, Congressman Jim Clyburn of South Carolina, to serve in the number three House Democratic position,” Pelosi said in a letter today to House members. “I will also ask the Caucus to designate that position as Assistant Leader.”

    Clyburn sent a follow-up letter today to House Democrats in which he asked them to support Pelosi’s idea.

    “It adds an elected Leadership position and maintains a Leadership structure that honors the diversity and fosters the unity of our Caucus,” Clyburn wrote.

    A lesson to be learned by Latino voters in the Southwest now that they are supporting the Democrats en block by a 3 to 1 margin?

    Politics based on race, looks like a non-starter for the long term health of American politics. Somebody will always be disappointed.

    Day By Day October 14, 2010 – The Mask

    Day By Day by Chris Muir

    A House Speaker Nancy Pelosi MASK is indeed scary and why so many incumbent Democratic Congressmen are running for political cover.

    But, what is even more scary is this:

    Applications for jobless benefits rose last week for the first time in three weeks, evidence that companies are reluctant to hire in a slow economy.

    The Labor Department says initial claims for unemployment aid rose by 13,000 to a seasonally adjusted 462,000. It was only the second rise in two months.

    Despite the ups and down, claims have been stuck near 450,000 all year. Few employers see much reason to create many jobs, and some are still laying off workers.

    In addition, cash-strapped state and local governments are cutting jobs, adding to the ranks of those out of work.

    The four-week average of claims, a less volatile measure, rose by 2,250 to 459,000.

    The November election cannot come fast enough and then January when the new Congress can send President Obama and the Democrats a message – Fix Our economy by repealing ObamaCare.

    Day By Day October 13, 2010 – Bad Witch

    Chris, being associated with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is toxic this election cycle. Nobody running for Congress wants to be associated with the San Francisco Far Left POL.The Democrats at her helm are even cannibalizing their own. Look at this.

    A Democratic candidate for Congress accused the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) of pulling its support for his campaign because he said he wouldn’t support Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) as House Speaker.

    State Sen. Roy Herron (D), who’s running for the opening seat held by retiring Rep. John Tanner (D) in Tennessee’s 8th congressional district, suggested the DCCC’s decision to cancel ad buys in the racerefusal to back Pelosi.

    A handful of Democrats have said they wouldn’t back Pelosi to remain asleader of the House Democrats, and several more have been noncommittal. Rep. Bobby Bright (D-Ala.) released an ad on Tuesady touting his pledge to vote against Pelosi, and Rep. Peter DeFazio (D-Ore.) has suggested Pelosi’s leadership might not be tenable if Democrats sustain heavy losses.

    So, now the Democrats are running not against their Republican opponents but against their own Democratic Party leaders?

    Desperate times call for desperate measures, I suppose.

    Election 2010 Poll Watch: GOP Takes Unprecedented 10-Point Lead on Generic Ballot

    I would gather the national Republican Party will do fairly well in the upcoming November elections.

    Republicans lead by 51% to 41% among registered voters in Gallup weekly tracking of 2010 congressional voting preferences. The 10-percentage-point lead is the GOP’s largest so far this year and is its largest in Gallup’s history of tracking the midterm generic ballot for Congress.

    hese results are based on aggregated data from registered voters surveyed Aug. 23-29 as part of Gallup Daily tracking. This marks the fifth week in a row in which Republicans have held an advantage over Democrats — one that has ranged between 3 and 10 points.

    The Republican leads of 6, 7, and 10 points this month are all higher than any previous midterm Republican advantage in Gallup’s history of tracking the generic ballot, which dates to 1942. Prior to this year, the highest such gap was five points, measured in June 2002 and July 1994. Elections in both of these years resulted in significant Republican gains in House seats.


    American voters feel that something is VERY wrong with the direction of the United States. And, they will punish the incumbent Democratic Party of President Obama, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid.

    Some House Democrats Have Ads Running Away From President Obama and Democratic Congressional Leaders

    Democrat Bobby Bright for Congress Ad

    With Rahm Emanuel in the White House, I guess he isn’t there to save these more conservative Democratic Congressmen in their re-election races. So, they have taken matters into their own hands and started to repudiate the Far Left policies of President Obama and Nancy Pelosi.

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., called them her “majority makers” – the moderate to conservative Democrats in right-leaning districts whose election in 2006 made her Speaker.

    And now many of them – and other Democrats in competitive districts — are fighting for their political lives in a harsh environment and have found it necessary to distance themselves from their leaders and Democratic policies.

    Can you blame the Democrats? I mean they are scared that President Obama who is crashing in popularity will cost them their seats.

    Top Democrats are growing markedly more pessimistic about holding the House, privately conceding that the summertime economic and political recovery they were banking on will not likely materialize by Election Day.

    In conversations with more than two dozen party insiders, most of whom requested anonymity to speak candidly about the state of play, Democrats in and out of Washington say they are increasingly alarmed about the economic and polling data they have seen in recent weeks.

    Guess these Democrats should have done their own policy thinking and voted for their American constituents instead of the European Social Democracy that Obama is peddling as his own.

    Alabama Democrat Congressman, Bobby Bright, featured in the ad above, has come up with a novel way to distance himself from Speaker Nancy Pelosi even more – HER DEATH.

    U.S. Congressman Bobby Bright was heard having a little fun at U.S. Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi’s expense during his recent participation in the Montgomery Area Chamber of Commerce’s Eggs and Issues.

    Bright, who is is in his first year in Congress and facing a battle against Montgomery City Councilwoman Martha Roby this fall, joked that Pelosi might lose her own election, decide not to run for the speaker’s job or otherwise not be available.

    He suggested, jokingly he insisted to his audience, that Pelosi could fall ill and die in coming months. That remark drew laughter from the crowd.

    Though he has a reputation as the second most independent member of Congress, he has been routinely blasted for voting for Pelosi to be speaker.


    DEMOCRAT Representative Bobby Bright REALLY wants to win.

    Day By Day August 21, 2010 – Grease

    Day By Day by Chris Muir

    Talk about a disconnect with reality, Speaker Pelosi, look at the latest on the Ground Zero Mosque.

    Steve Emerson has unearthed 13 hours of audio tape of Imam Rauf. Emerson and his team of investigators has spent the past four weeks going through the newly found material. Rauf  is a “radical extremist cleric who cloaks himself in sheep’s clothing.”

    Among the shocking revelations Emerson’s team will reveal next week — they found Rauf:

    •     Defending wahhabism – a puritanical version of Islam that governs Saudi Arabia
    •     Calling for the elimination of Israel by claiming a one-nation state, meaning no more Jewish State.
    •     Defending Bin Laden’s violence
    •     Demonstrating that there is a lot more to this man than merely a cleric.

    And, this is the cleric that the PRESIDENT supports for religious freedom and who Speaker Pelosi wants to investigate opponents thereof?

    Ridiculous, no?

    Why didn’t John McCain make an issue of Obama’s former Pastor Jeremiah Wright during the 2008 campaign and spared America this embarassment?

    Day By Day August 18, 2010 – Monologues

    Day By Day by Chris Muir

    Speaking about monologues, Chris, did you hear what Democrat Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi said about the New York Mosque FLAP?

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, California Democrat, called for an investigation of those who are protesting the building of the GroundZ ero Mosque on Tuesday. She told San Francisco’s KCBS radio:


    “There is no question there is a concerted effort to make this a political issue by some. And I join those who have called for looking into how is this opposition to the mosque is being funded,” she said. “How is this
    being ginned up that here we are talking about
    Treasure Island, something we’ve been working on for decades, something of great interest to our community as we go forward to an election about the
    future of our country and two of the first three questions are about a zoning issue in New York City.”
    (h/t Kristinn)

    Calls to investigate the funding for those proposing the $100 million “Cordoba House” have fallen on deaf ears, though, as New York’s Mayor Mike Bloomberg has described such an investigation as “un-American.”

    Ms. Pelosi called the Ground Zero mosque an “urban development decision” for New Yorkers to work through. Her remarks happened on the heels of Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, Nevada Democrat, parting ways with President Barack Obama on the issue. Mr. Reid suggested the mosque should be built somewhere else.

    In the meantime, Ms. Pelosi is hitting the ball back to New Yorkers to deal with.

    “I think everybody respects the right of everyone in the country to express their religious beliefs. ..The decision, though, as to how to go forward in New York, is up to New York,” Ms. Pelosi explained. “I look
    to my colleagues in New York. Some of them have different views on the subject. It’s up to them to work it out.”

    Of course, when the FLAP hit the fan, Pelosi walked back or should we say clarified her statements.

    “The freedom of religion is a Constitutional right.  Where a place of worship is located is a local decision.

    “I support the statement made by the Interfaith Alliance that ‘We agree with the ADL that there is a need for transparency about who is funding the effort to build this Islamic center.  At the same time, we should also ask who is funding the attacks against the construction of the center.’

    “For all of those expressing concern about the 9/11 families, we call upon them to join us in support of the James Zadroga 9/11 Health and Compensation Act when Congress returns in September.”

    “I support the statement made by the Interfaith Alliance that ‘We agree with the ADL that there is a need for transparency about who is funding the effort to build this Islamic center.  At the same time, we should
    also ask who is funding the attacks against the construction of the center.’

    “For all of those expressing concern about the 9/11 families, we call upon them to join us in support of the James Zadroga 9/11 Health and Compensation Act when Congress returns in September.”

    OK, so Pelosi, like Obama, look like idiots involving themselves in a matter over which they have little or no control, except for beating their gums. When will they speak up for New Yorkers and other Americans who adamantly oppose this Mosque?

    Answer: NEVER

    Video: Nancy Pelosi Says Unemployment Checks Fastest Way to Create Jobs

    Democrat House Speaker Nancy Pelosi:”It creates jobs faster than almost any other initiative you can name.”

    Has the Speaker lost her frakking mind?

    Unemployment benefits are creating jobs faster than practically any other program, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said Thursday.

    Talking to reporters, the House speaker was defending a jobless benefits extension against those who say it gives recipients little incentive to work. By her reasoning, those checks are helping give somebody a job.

    “It injects demand into the economy,” Pelosi said, arguing that when families have money to spend it keeps the economy churning. “It creates jobs faster than almost any other initiative you can name.”

    Pelosi said the aid has the “double benefit” of helping those who lost their jobs and acting as a “job creator” on the side.

    “It’s impossible to think of a situation where we would have a country that would say we’re not going to have unemployment benefits,” Pelosi said.

    Democrats have been trying for more than a month to pass a bill extending jobless benefits to more than 1 million people. Currently, jobless benefits last nearly two years — up to 26 weeks paid by state treasuries with federal help for up to an additional 73 weeks.

    Of course, those workers could be sending a lot more money into the economy if they had jobs since unemployment benefits generally do not cover the entire cost of lost wages.

    The counterintuitive statement drew jeers from Republicans, who claim Democrats can’t figure out any way to tackle the economic slump that doesn’t involve spending massive amounts of taxpayer money.

    These statements are beyond belief. She is almost as convincing as Slow Joe Biden.

    No wonder the economy is in the shitter.

    Day By Day January 31, 2010 – He Joined for the Party

    Day By Day by Chris Muir

    The Congressional Democrats and the Obama Administration are repeating the same “culture of corruption” 1994 mistakes of Bill, Hillary Clinton and the Congress then dominated by the Democrats. The House before the 1994 election had been controlled the Democrats for over forty years (since 1952).

    Remember the House post office scandal?

    Remember Democrat Speaker of the House Jim Wright and the scandals?

    Same political crap with Speaker Nancy Pelosi –  just different politicians.

    It reads like a dream order for a wild frat party: Maker’s Mark whiskey, Courvoisier cognac, Johnny Walker Red scotch, Grey Goose vodka, E&J brandy, Bailey’s Irish Crème, Bacardi Light rum, Jim Beam whiskey, Beefeater gin, Dewars scotch, Bombay Sapphire gin, Jack Daniels whiskey … and Corona beer.

    But that single receipt makes up just part of the more than $101,000 taxpayers paid for “in-flight services” – including food and liquor, for House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s trips on Air Force jets over the last two years. That’s almost $1,000 per week.

    Documents obtained under the Freedom of Information Act by Judicial Watch, which investigates and prosecutes government corruption, show Pelosi incurred expenses of some $2.1 million for her use of Air Force jets for travel
    over that time.

    “Speaker Pelosi has a history of wasting taxpayer funds with her boorish demands for military travel,” Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton said today. “And these documents suggest the Speaker’s congressional delegations are more about partying than anything else.”

    American taxpayers/voters WILL send the Democrats a message this November.

    Day By Day by Chris Muir August 14, 2009 – Answer the Call

    Day By Day by Chris Muir

    President Obama and Congressional Democrats who support Obamacare, Chris, have already MISSED the call. The Democrats have massive, filibuster-proof majorities in the U.S. Senate. So, why are they waiting for the minority Republicans on the Senate Finance Committee?

    Why are they wasting your time with town hall meetings when the Congressional Leadership have already made up their minds to RAM the socialistic Obamacare through?

    Answer: Political Cover

    So, Democrat POLS like Nancy Pelosi (Nazis), Harry Reid (Evil Mongers) and Shelia Jackson Lee (imposter astroturfe fake physicians and ignore via cell phone) will continue their conduct until the White House exerts some damage control.
