MSNBC’s explanation for George W. Bush’s book selling so successfully is that “he was hated by so many people.”
“It may be the fact that he was hated by so many people actually helped fuel his book sales….and you can imagine that some people bought it as a gag, or some people received it as a gift and didn’t really want it.”

The Blaze: Georgia state Sen. Robert Brown drew fire this week when he quipped that the state GOP was filled with KKK members. Now he’s under fire again after a person who accompanied him to a press conference to clear up those comments brutally attacked a local photo journalist. The local paper The Telegraph says the Senator denies being associated with the attacker, despite walking into the press conference building with him . . . . . Read More

Here is the 2012 Electoral Vote Map, updated to take into account the results of the 2010 Census. We have shaded the states according to our current estimate of how the state is likely to vote in the November 2012 General Election. States that we consider “battleground,” or “tossup” states we have shaded in green.

As you can see, President Obama starts out with a significant advantage – largely due to his virtual lock on California and New York. Those two states give him 84 Electoral Votes, nearly one-third of what he needs to win. At this point we have the Electoral Vote totals as follows:

238 – Likely Obama Votes

191 – Likely GOP Votes

109 – Battleground Votes

The outcome of the Election will likely be fought out in these nine states with a total of 109 Electoral Votes: Nevada, Colorado, New Mexico, Wisconsin, Ohio, New Hampshire, Virginia, North Carolina, and Florida.

If the GOP candidate can win these Battleground States – Florida, North Carolina, Virginia and Ohio, he or she will have 266 votes – just four short of victory. Those four could come from any of the remaining Battleground States.

We will keep this map updated with our estimates as we approach the 2012 Election. You can always access the latest map on our Electoral Vote Map Page, which is linked in the middle pollbar at the top of the page.

Here is a video montage of comments showing the stark contrast between President Obama and GOP Leaders on “American Exceptionalism.” By his own words, Obama does not think America is any more “exceptional” that Greece or Great Britain or any other country. In his world, there is an equivalency between the history and actions of the United States and that of other nations.

But the statements of GOP Leaders demonstrates the massive divide in conviction. Conservatives believe the United States is the greatest nation the world has ever seen – Greatest in terms of our Constitution, our ideals and in the way we have stood for freedom around the world. The video also shows a graphic that 91% of Republicans believe the U.S. is the “greatest country in the world,” while only 73% of Democrats agree with that statement.

Here is video of Charles Krauthammer saying that the new GOP-controlled House of Representatives must realistically focus the next two years on “containment” of President Obama. He also said they must be careful on how the seek to reduce spending. Krauthammer advised that the GOP should cap spending and set limits, but force the Obama Administration to then implement the cuts so that their fingerprints on not on the specific programs that are cut.

“Its Good to Have a Ring.” The latest FOX Sports NFL commercial mocks the outrageous and intrusive procedures implemented by Big Sis and the Obama TSA. In the ad the FOX Sports announcers with Super Bowl rings get a pass by TSA. The announcers without rings get strip-searched and harassed by TSA employees.

Here is video of liberal Ezra Klein actually saying today that the U.S. Constitution “is confusing because it was written more than a hundred years ago.”

Klein made the remarks in response to news that the new GOP-controlled House of Representatives is going to begin the new session of Congress by (gasp!) reading the United States Constitution out loud!

No, Ezra – the Constitution is not “confusing,” and it was actually written more than 200 years ago! It is just inconvenient to liberals like you because it actually limits the power of the Federal Government, which goes against ever fiber of your being.

Here is a video report on a possible terror plot against a Danish Newspaper being broken up by authorities. Three men are under arrest for allegedly planning to attack the newspaper that in 2005, published cartoon drawings depicting Islam’s Prophet Muhammed. Muslims considered the drawings blasphemous. Reports indicate that at least one of the suspects arrested has been arrested twice before on terror-related charges and then released:

NEW YORK TIMES: . . . . . The charges included preparing to attack the Jyllands-Posten newspaper, which published the cartoons of Muhammad in 2005 to affirm what it called freedom of expression. But the drawings were seen as blasphemous and a deliberate provocation by many Muslims, and prompted rioting in some countries and repeated attempts at violent retribution.

According to the charge sheet, the men were accused of being in possession of a machine pistol, a silencer and a 9 mm pistol, along with ammunition for both.

The suspects acquired the weapons in Sweden, the charge sheet said, “then on December 29, 2010, drove into Denmark from Sweden, where using the weapons, they intended to attack Jyllands-Posten and kill an unknown number of people.” The alleged plot “failed when the accused were arrested” on Wednesday. . . . . Some of the suspects were included in a recent list of about 200 potential terrorists in Sweden, said Anders Danielsson, the head of Sweden’s security police, though he would not say which ones or how many. Local media in Sweden reported that at least one suspect had been arrested twice before on terrorism charges, in 2007 and 2009, and later released. . . . . Read More

It might be time to consider that guy an Islamic Terrorist.

A video that needs to go viral.

Here is R. Lee Ermey – of Full Metal Jacket, Mail Call, and Geico commerical fame – who speak in behalf of the Toys for Tots program, and then also blasts the Obama Administration for having a lot to do with the fact that the present U.S. Economy “sucks.” Ermey was just getting warmed up.

He went on to say:

“Not to point fingers at anybody, but the present administration probably has a lot to do with that. And the way I see it, they’re not going to quit doing it until they bring this country to its knees. So I think we should all rise up and we should stop this Administration from what they are doing, because they are destroying this country. They’re driving us into bankruptcy so they can impose socialism on us. That’s exactly what they’re doing, and I’m sick and damn tired of it and I know you are too. But I know the Marine Corps is going to be here forever – this Administration won’t. Semper Fi. God Bless you all.”

Ermey just said in a few words what I believe millions of Americans are thinking. We’ll see how many on Election Day 2012.

Below is video of Ermey in his very successful “Therapist Sarge” Geico Commercial:

Here is a video report on a U.S. Marine home on leave from Afghanistan, and his wife, who were attacked by a pack of teenagers at a Bradenton, Florida movie theater. The Marine had asked the teens – who were in the two rows behind the couple – to quiet down during a movie. Eventually the teens were ejected from the theater, but waited for the couple outside to attack them. The Marine’s wife wound up getting punched by a male and knocked out. A “Good Samaritan” reportedly “flashed a gun” he had at the crowd of teens to get them to leave.

How sad to think that this Marine – who is putting his life on the line for all of us – would be subjected to this kind of treatment in his own country.

Here is video of New York Democrat Rep. Charlie Rangel telling MSNBC’s Chris Matthews that President Obama will not have to face a Primary challenge from the Left in 2012 because of his success in the just completed Lame-Duck Session of Congress. Rangel was asked about Hillary Clinton running in 2016, and he would not commit to supporting her in a run at that time. Clinton will be 69 years old in 2016.

Here is shocking audio (I guess we shouldn’t be) from New Black Panther Leader Malik Shabazz saying on a radio show that he met privately with Iran’s thug President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and that he is working to “build alliances” that will enable him to “build a nation right here in America.”

“How can you forget in 2010 when we met with the A-Man from Iran. . . . . There will be more to that . . . . Securing the minerals, the gas, the oil, the means of trade, the food to build a nation right here in America.”

Shabazz reportedly met with Ahmadinejad along with Louis Farrakhan back in September while the “A-Man” was visiting the United Nations in New York.

You won’t hear a word about this in the “Mainstream Media,” even as they continue to push the meme that the Tea Party Movement is a threat to America.

During a panel discussion surrounding President Obama’s call of support to Eagles QB Michael Vick, Fox News contributor Tucker Carlson called for the execution of Vick for his crimes against dogs. It is really over-the-top for Carlson to suggest such a punishment in my opinion. Vick served over 18 months in Federal prison for his crimes. I think he got the message. Just hope I am right.

What do you think?

Update: I changed the headline of this story to reflect the exact quote by Tucker Carlson.
