"No doubt there are many Democrats rubbing their hands in glee in contemplation of reviving some version of the ad that featured an actor playing Paul Ryan pushing grandma in a wheelchair off a cliff. But the smarter ones are worried.
1. If Ryan is an extremist and his proposals are unpopular, how has he won election SEVEN times in a Deocratic district? His lowest share of the vote was 57%-in his first race. He routinely wins over 2/3 of the vote. When Obama swept the nation in 2008, he carried Ryan's district by 4 points. But at the same time, Ryan won reelection with 65% of the vote, meaning that a fifth of Obama voters voted for him.
2. Democrats know that Ryan has Reaganesque qualities that make him appealing to independent, middle classvoters. Take the cover story on Ryan that the ISTHMUS, a radically left wing Madison, Wis. newspaper,ran on him in 2009. "Ryan, with his sunny disposition and choirboy looks, projects compassion and forcefully proclaims dedication to his district", the story reported. "And he's proven he is not unyieldingly pro-corporate, as when he recently joined in condemnation of AIG retention bonuses".
3. Ryan's ideas aren't that novel or scary. The idea of "premium support" for Medicare, which would change the program's one size fits all policy to a private insurance model with public options, was endorsed by a bipartisan commission appointed by Bill Clinton in the 1990's. Late last year, Ryan announced a new version of his proposal with a new partner signing on: Democratic Ron Wyden of Oregon, who first achieved political prominence as an advocate for seniors.
4. Ryan puts Wis. and its 10 electoral votes in play. Polls have shown that Obama holds a 5 to 7 point lead in Wis.-significant, but much less than Obama's 14 point lead in 2008. With Ryan on the ticket, polls show the race is dead even.
5. If Republicans were looking for a superior candidate, they've found it in Ryan. His speech as GOP candidate V.P. was perfectly pitched:
....We won't duck the tough issues...we will lead!
....We won't blame others...we will take responsibility!
....We won't replace our founding principles...we will reapply them!
Echoes of Ronald Reagan at his best.
6. Joe Trippi(D) acknowledged Ryan will bring in a flood of donations.
Democrats will no doubt try to make Ryan into a younger version of the devil they've tried to paint Romney as. But they should worry about fighting a campaign on fundamental issues in a weak economy. That's precisely how Carter,the last Democrat to run for reelection during hard times, wound up losing so badly that it not only cost Democrats control of the Senate but damaging the liberal brand for years afterwards."

$14 Billion in Jobless Benefits Overpaid in ’11

The unemployment insurance system in America suffers the second highest rate for “improper payments” of any federal program, behind the National School Lunch Program, and overpayments topped $14 billion last year alone.

The overpayments accounted for 11 percent of all jobless benefits paid out by the federal government and states in 2011, according to reports from the U.S. Labor Department.

I believe this site is managed by some right wing media org funded by a "People for safe fracking" or some phoney super pac interest llike that. I think they pay people like the person who posted right before you. He propogates the same mis-information over and over again. And if you notice his source its FOX News. So, where just responding to these ringers. So they aren't able to influence the soft minded people out there who don't know who they're voting for yet.

New York Times Excerpts Sept 11, 03 [Under Bush's Administration] Footnote 3



"The Bush administration today recommended the most significant regulatory overhaul in the housing finance industry since the savings and loan crisis a decade ago.


The plan is an acknowledgment by the administration that oversight of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac -- which together have issued more than $1.5 trillion in outstanding debt -- is broken. A report by outside investigators in July concluded that Freddie Mac manipulated its accounting to mislead investors, and critics have said Fannie Mae does not adequately hedge against rising interest rates.



Among the groups denouncing the proposal today were the National Association of Home Builders and Congressional Democrats who fear that tighter regulation of the companies could sharply reduce their commitment to financing low-income and affordable housing.



''These two entities -- Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac -- are not facing any kind of financial crisis,'' said Representative Barney Frank of Massachusetts the ranking Democrat on the Financial Services Committee.''The more people exaggerate these problems, the more pressure there is on these companies, the less we will see in terms of affordable housing.''[Barney Franks is Chairman of the Banking Committee and received huge sums of money from Fannie Mae & Freddie Mac and is the one pushing this bailout bill through the House] Representative Melvin L. Watt, Democrat of North Carolina, agreed.

I didn't know the election was held yet. No matter what the polls or conjectured electoral map shows, we still have the debates. I can't wait!

Obama will try to deflect away from any economic or unemployment questions, and Ryan will tear Biden to pieces.

August 12, 2012 6:32 AM PrintText Obama leads Romney in three key swing states
(CBS News) President Obama leads Mitt Romney among likely voters in Ohio and Florida - and has a double-digit lead in Pennsylvania - according to a Quinnipiac University/CBS News/New York Times poll released this morning.

The poll, conducted from July 24-30, shows Mr. Obama leading his presumptive Republican challenger 53 percent to 42 percent in Pennsylvania. The 11-point lead results largely from independents, who favor the president by 22 points, and women, who favor the president by 24 points.

Mr. Obama holds a six-point lead in Ohio, 50 percent to 44 percent, a state where he holds a campaign event later today. His lead here is also due in large part to women, who back him by a 21-point margin. Romney leads by ten points among Ohio men, and seven points among Ohio whites.

These are really bogus polls.......it's all made up.......Obama is going to eat up Robme in the debates like he did with the poodles he ate in Kenya..LMAO!

George W Bush has a probusiness/anticonsumer record, including crony capitalism with the awarding of post-Iraq war contracts (Halliburton, Bechtel, and MCI/Worldcom getting most of the contracts). Alterman and Green note that the first 2 years of the Bush administration coincided with the biggest corporate scandals and bankruptcies since Teapot Dome in the 1920s. Mr. Bush had to manage a falling economy riddled with corporate malfeasance. Companies on the corporate rap sheet:

MCI/Worldcom -- the single largest corporate securities fraud in U.S. history.
Enron -- the largest contributor to Bush's political career. The Bush administration is staffed with numerous former Enron employees and consultants.
Harken Energy -- Bush's behavior on Harken's board of directors was similar to that of the companies caught in the corporate scandals. Mr. Bush received several memos from Harken officials about the impending financial crisis in the company, sold his stock, then several days later the Harken financial problems wewre made public. He failed to file notice of these sales to the SEC for 8 months. The SEC simply stopped their 1990-91 investigation.
Halliburton -- Dick Cheney served as CEO and chairman from 1995-2000. He sold Halliburton stock before bad financial news regarding his company was made public. Halliburton committed fraud on its investors by overstating its earnings.
Enron and Worldcom were followed by scandals and failures at Adelphia, Tyco, and others.
As he did to his unsuccessful businesses, George W. Bush is doing to the country -- leading it down a path of failure:

huge federal deficits
mismanagement
deception
cronyism.

“The recklessness of government is the primary culprit here,”

Garrett said on the House floor on Jan. 18, 2007.

“For years Congress has been pushing banks to make risky subprime loans. You heard me right. It wasn’t the lenders on their own. Congress passed laws that said we’re going to fine you and we’re going to file lawsuits against you lenders if you don’t make risky loans.

“And using the authority of the Community Reinvestment Act, the big push for subprime mortgages began in earnest during the Clinton administration.
