Victoria —

The pundits and talking heads are talking about how badly we’re being outraised by the other side. You’ve heard it from us, too.

Three months in a row, Mitt Romney and the Republican Party have trounced our fundraising totals. And, along with allied outside groups, they’re using that cash to try to obliterate our side on the airwaves, outspending us in some battleground states by margins of up to three to one.

The pundits are saying this is how we could lose the election. You know what I say?

When you get knocked down, get up. There’s no quit in America. There’s nothing we can’t do.

This week isn’t just the Republican National Convention — it’s also the biggest fundraising deadline this campaign has seen, and one of the last. President Obama and I are counting on you.

Please make a donation of $3 or more today:

We’ve been counted out more than a few times before. It’s all on us to prove them wrong again.

Thanks,

Joe

P.S. — I’ve seen a lot of good campaigns — with smart, strong candidates and bold visions for the change we need — go down, simply because they couldn’t keep up. Don’t let this campaign be one of them. Donate today.

Rees Lloyd: Romney Leaves Convention To Talk To Veterans


Republican Presidential nominee Mitt Romney left the Republican National Convention today to attend the National American Legion Convention in Indianapolis, IN, on Wednesday, August 30, 2012.

 Romney took the unusual step of leaving the  Republican National Convention at which he is to be nominated for the presidency in Tampa on Thursday, to fly to the Legion Convention in Indianapolis to honor the invitation to speak before the wartime veterans of the Legion.  He said the invitation to appear and speak to the assembled veterans was an honor which he felt could not be declined, no matter his obligations to his own Convention.  He expressed great gratitude for the service and sacrifice of  all veterans, saying it was they who answered the country’s call to defend freedom for all Americans
Please take notice  that I shall not be conveying a report on the speech of President Barack Obama, as there wasn’t one. That is,  Commander in Chief Obama  did decline the invitation to appear. Instead, he made a “virtual appearance,” i.e., he sent a short video tape of himself.  In the interest of full disclosure, I report that, in response to Obama’s  decision to make but a “virtual appearance,”  I recommended,  following the principle of perfect equality, that he should be accorded a “virtual audience.”  I then followed my own advice.)
See account of Romney’s speech here.

PETE THE BANKER: NEW ORLEANS LEVEES BREACHED; OBAMA CAMPAIGNING; TALKS BEER WITH REDDIT

So overtopping; is that any better than breaching??
Where is the media outrage over wasted stimulus dollars.  Where is the media’s castigation of the Administration for its slowness in dealing with insufficient levees; levees which can’t even withstand a Category One Hurricane?  Where are the endless headlines proclaiming the Administration for its ineptitude, indifference and insensitivity to the residents of New Orleans and the surrounding area, especially given what was learned in the aftermath of Katrina?

UPDATED: ABC News on RNC "Happy to Party While Black People Die"

Listen to the first ten seconds. It actually sounds like Diane Sawyer is saying it, but Newsbusters thinks it’s a producer. Either way, these people are disgusting especially when taken into context of two previous posts on this blog:
UPDATE: Yahoo news says it was a guy saying this tripe. He’s been fired. Why? We already knew he was biased…

Dems’ War on REAL Women: Leftists Call Black Republican Mia Love a N****R

The Utah Mayor and candidate for Congress Mia Love is getting the Condi treatment. 

 H/T Pat Dollard via Twitchy politics.

They changed her wiki page to read:

This is how intolerant bigoted leftists treat black or hispanic republicans. They treat them as runaway slaves from their plantation. Just ask South Carolina Congressman Tim Scott, Florida Congressman Allen West, Nevada Governor Brian Sandoval, New Mexico Governor Susana Martinez, former Congressman Artur Davis, and numerous other people of color who have come to the GOP for freedom from government tentacles.

I’d say ‘shame on you bigots’, but I don’t think there’s any hope for you.

One bright spot in all of this, however. More people will see your pandering to people of color as just that. You sell slavery to government programs. You don’t preach freedom.

Michelle Malkin and Twitchy Media/Politics have busted the left on a game they’re playing at the 2012 RNC. They call it “Negro Spotting” Check out the NAACP member and City Councilman joining in the left’s racist antics:

See the rest here. 

Of course the left is offended at any black person who becomes a runaway slave from their ideological plantation. The racist left in fact inflicts even more invective on these folks because they think for themselves.

Take former National Security Adviser and former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice. She’ll be a featured speaker tonight at the RNC. If the left is so sensitive to the plight of black man in America, then why did they do this to her when she was in the Bush Administration?

Pete the Banker: On Levees, Hurriances and Shovel Ready Jobs

LA Governor Bobby Jindal

Pardon me for asking a stupid question, but one of headlines this week is that the Army Corp of Engineers was rushing to shore up the gaps in the levees around New Orleans. Now as I recall the avowed purpose of the Administration’s Stimulus Program passed in 2009 was to support shovel ready infrastructure projects. And what could be more shovel ready and have had more widespread voter support than fortifying the levies around New Orleans?




Allegedly money has been spent on New Orleans environmental and levee restoration (~$14 billion scheduled; allegedly 70% complete); but obviously not enough given the headlines and apparently some levees restored are literally sinking into the muck.  

Why didn’t this Administration spend more stimulus dollars, more quickly on the New Orleans levees rather than things like turtle tunnels in Florida?? For that matter given the BP oil spill disaster, why wasn’t this Administration more supportive of the Louisiana Governor’s efforts to build barrier islands and barriers off the Louisiana shoreline to stop the oil spill and to help shelter Louisiana shoreline wetlands?
