However, the reason I’m bringing this up again is to ask the following question: if Former President Highest Disapproval Rating In Gallup Poll History is now as popular as they say – WHERE IS HE?
Why isn’t he, true to his utterly insufferable form, standing up and saying, “yeah, all you dern members of the Democrat Party, guess I’m not so bad after all, am I?”
As we learn from here…
Bush left office deeply unpopular and sour on domestic politics. After leaving Washington and returning to Texas, he has kept a low profile, working on his memoir and appearing only occasionally at paid speeches. Aides say he has no plans to be a figure in this year's elections, which could see major gains for the GOP.Yeah, Obama sure is as popular as Dubya all right. But tell Former Commander Codpiece to get lost anyway just to make sure, why dontcha?
I double-dog-dare Number 43 to get behind a campaign for a Republican politician and show up on TV between now and Election Day.
And just for good measure, he should do it under this sign.
(AP) - Republican challenger Kristi Noem raised more than $1.1 million in the past three months in her race for South Dakota's lone U.S. House seat, about double the amount raised by the Democratic incumbent, Rep. Stephanie Herseth Sandlin.Yep, sounds like the Repug soft money machine fronted by Karl Rove, Ed Gillespie and the Chamber of Commerce is working overtime (the Citizens United legacy in full flower – and yes, I know the detailed reporting is yet to come, but this is my guess and someone will have to prove to me that I’m wrong).
The campaigns will not file detailed finance reports on contributions and spending for the July-through-September period until later this week, but both released summaries of donations on Tuesday.
But it looks like Noem has spent a lot of time on those apparently-wide-open South Dakota roadways living by her own rules; as noted here…
According to local news reports, Noem’s lifetime driving record includes 20 speeding tickets, three stop sign violations, two seat belt violations, and a citation for failing to carry her driver’s license. She has also received six notices for failing to appear in court and two arrest warrants for failing to pay fines related to her tickets. She was stopped by police earlier this year for driving 94 mph.As all Repugs know, rules are for the little people. And Democrats, of course.
With labor troubles looming over the National Football League season and the prospect of a football lockout next spring, two Republican senators have sent letters to the league and the NFL Players Association urging a quick resolution to behind-the-scenes wrangling, CNBC has learned.As the CNBC story tells us, the letters were sent by Huckleberry Graham (who urged the players and the owners to settle their differences “without congressional involvement”) and George Lemieux (who said, “More than 125,000 support personnel owe their jobs directly to an NFL franchise, and many more businesses and workers are directly or indirectly supported by the League’s economic activity”…).
The letters appear to be the first time Congress has weighed in on the lockout issue publicly, although members of Congress frequently speak to lobbyists for the NFL and the players association.
It’s commendable, actually, that both Graham and Lemieux are choosing to involve themselves in this matter which could affect people’s employment.
It would have been even more commendable if they had not voted to filibuster unemployment benefits, as noted here.
…San Franciscans voted 60 percent to 40 percent to ban military recruiters from their public schools. The vote was non-binding, but it did tell us something about how the majority feels about the army, navy, air force and marines, doesn’t it?However, as noted here from May of 2009…
And once, in a vote that did count, the school board decided to throw Junior ROTC out of the city’s high schools, despite the fact that the programs were optional and immensely popular with the kids who chose to join. One school board member said it was better to focus on a “curriculum of peace” than allow JROTC to remain as an after school activity.
SAN FRANCISCO - A three-year battle over whether Junior Reserve Officers' Training Corps belongs in San Francisco schools ended Tuesday night with a 4-3 vote by the school board to restore the military leadership program weeks before its scheduled expiration.And if you want to indulge in more Goldberg propaganda, click here.
More than 200 supporters and opponents of the program crowded into the school district headquarters to make their final pleas to the board. And their arguments were as emotionally charged as they were when the fight began in 2006.
"To some of you, this is a political issue," Balboa High School sophomore Malik Douglas told the board. "But to me it's a personal issue. Represent our opinions instead of yours."
Board members Rachel Norton, Hydra Mendoza, Norman Yee and Jill Wynns voted to keep the program. Jane Kim, Kim-Shree Maufas and Sandra Fewer voted against the program.
The board's vote reverses a controversial 2006 vote to get rid of JROTC in the city high schools. The armed forces, the board then argued, should not be in public schools, and the military's discriminatory stance on gays made it unacceptable.
Now who’s a “ding dong,” Bernie?
