Janeane Garofalo Expresses Disappointment With Obama: does that mean she is Racist straight up?

June 27, 2010 Politisite 0

If Janeane Garofalo says something bad about the Obama administration, does that mean she’s a racist redneck?  Guess SC Republican Tim Scott has Stockholm syndrome. After all, she’s been telling people almost since Inauguration Day that anyone that disagrees with this president does so because of the color of his skin. So when she told the A.V. Club Friday, “There are so many things in the Obama administration to be […]

In 2010, Conservatives Outnumber Moderates, Liberals

June 25, 2010 Politisite 0

PRINCETON, NJ — Conservatives have maintained their leading position among U.S. ideological groups in the first half of 2010. Gallup finds 42% of Americans describing themselves as either very conservative or conservative. This is up slightly from the 40% seen for all of 2009 and contrasts with the 20% calling themselves liberal or very liberal. The 2010 results are based on eight Gallup and USA Today/Gallup surveys conducted from January […]

campaign-disclosure bill: CEOs have to appear in Campaign ads but not Union Bosses

June 24, 2010 Politisite 0

Corporate CEOs would have to appear in campaign ads they fund, under a political disclosure bill the House just passed by a narrow margin. Democrats, hoping to rein in special-interest spending before November’s midterm elections, pushed the measure, which would impose broad new disclosure rules on political spending. The bill, approved by a 219-206 vote, was opposed by Republicans who cast it as violating free-speech protections and filled with exemptions […]

Federal Judge: Salazar Lied, Drilling to Resume

June 24, 2010 Politisite 0

For all his John Wayne rhetoric on the BP oil spill, President Obama has failed to administer a swift kick to the ample, deserving rump of Interior Secretary Ken Salazar. No matter. Federal judge Martin Feldman has now done the job the White House won’t do. In a scathing ruling issued Tuesday afternoon, New Orleans-based Feldman overturned the administration’s radical six-month moratorium on deepwater drilling — and he singled out […]

State Republicans could remove Sen. Jake Knotts from the party in an unprecedented vote this weekend, barring him from running as a Republican for any office in South Carolina, Greenville County GOP Chairman Patrick Haddon said today. Haddon joined the Upcountry Coalition of Conservative Organizations in calling for the state GOP’s executive committee to oust the Lexington Republican, who has been under fire for his use of a racial slur […]

Americans See Congress as Ineffective, Self-Serving, Entrenched, want most Ousted

June 23, 2010 Politisite 0

PRINCETON, NJ — Americans who believe most members of Congress do not deserve to be re-elected support their position by saying representatives are simply doing a bad job, that they have been in office too long, that they are not making decisions based on what’s best for the country, or that they are too focused on self-interest, special interests, and partisanship. Relatively few cite Congress’ performance on specific issues. More […]

Could Obama grant illegals amnesty by executive order?

June 23, 2010 Politisite 0

And we all know how much he likes doing things by executive order. Even so, and mindful of the fact that some O critics consider him capable of anything, I’m skeptical. Several Senators have learned of a possible plan by the Obama Administration that would provide a mass Amnesty for the nation’s 11-18 million illegal aliens. Led by Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa), eight Senators addressed a letter to the President […]

McChrystal out, Petraeus in

June 23, 2010 Politisite 0

In an attempt to look like a strong tough President Obama fires (really accepted his resignation)  General McChrystal.  Obama’s PR team was obviously on board by having McChrystal come to the White House to divert attention from failures in the Gulf of Mexico. President Obama ousted his top commander in Afghanistan Wednesday after officials determined that comments he and his staff made in a Rolling Stone magazine article amounted to […]
