The same 42% who hate Bush no matter what.
Democrats, why is this news?
When gas prices go up, it is on Bush.
When gas prices go down it is some conspiracy with Karl Rove pulling the strings.
Could it be supply is up? Could it be the summer driving/vacation season is over? Could it be no major hurricanes? (I still need help with that one from the global warming, things are getting worse, Chicken Little crowd) Could it be futures purchases are down? Could it be economics 101? (supply & demand)
Frankly logic and fact matter little when there is partisan slimery to be had.
I believe what we have here is just another example of Bush Derangement syndrome.
Today's left is so invested in Bush hate that is all they have.
Apparently that is all they think they need. They dropped their long foreshadowed plan this week. It changed about 7 times over the year as poll after poll showed they had not a clue what the folks really wanted. What they have stopped on is, we hate Bush, vote for us. That's it, that's the plan.
Remember the whole if you want a bill on this or that on fighting terror, come to us we'll pass one for you bit from Harry Reid and his minions in the Senate? Well this week we got a bill on wiretaps and on interrorgation. Shall we go look up how those senators voted who claimed to only want to be involved in the process?
Frankly you'd have to have your head in the sand to know that their rhetoric did not match up to their voting records.
So here we have another story failing to make the point that this is the same 42% who hate everything Bush does.
42% is a big voting block, but why are they news? What is new (new being the root word of news) here?
And they want to be called Progressive. This is not progressive, this is just the same old liberal scare tactics, made up conspiracy theories and slime that we have come to know and loathe from the Democratic party.

GORE: CIGARETTE SMOKING 'SIGNIFICANT' CONTRIBUTOR TO GLOBAL WARMING
Fri Sep 29 2006 09:04:05
Former U.S. Vice President Al Gore warned hundreds of U.N. diplomats and staff on Thursday evening about the perils of climate change, claiming: Cigarette smoking is a "significant contributor to global warming!"
Gore, who was introduced by Secretary-General Kofi Annan, said the world faces a "full-scale climate emergency that threatens the future of civilization on earth."
Gore showed computer-generated projections of ocean water rushing in to submerge the San Francisco Bay Area, New York City, parts of China, India and other nations, should ice shelves in Antarctica or Greenland melt and slip into the sea.
"The planet itself will do nicely, thank you very much what is at risk is human civilization," Gore said. After a series of Q& A with the audience, which had little to do with global warming and more about his political future, Annan bid "adios" to Gore.
Then, Gore had his staff opened a stack of cardboard boxes to begin selling his new book, "An Inconvenient Truth, The Planetary Emergency of Global Warming and What We Can Do About It," $19.95, to the U.N. diplomats.
Show me the scientific consensus that says smoking increases global warming, can you not see the politics is more important to AlGore than any science or cause. He does not live his own life in any environmentally friendy way, yet he wants to tell you how to live your life.
And no, I do not smoke.
As we reported here first Tuesday evening, Racine County Executive Bill McReynolds was cleared of any wrong doing in relation to a company he was a part owner of that did a miniscule amount of business with Racine County. All ethics forms were on file, all disclosure done, no favoritism was shown, yadda yadda.
Here are the four headlines when this story broke:
- McReynolds' firm sold equipment to Sheriff's Department
- Did Mac's bumpers break the law?" No complaint filed in regard to McReynolds' business deal
- McReynolds' dealings will be investigated
- Did McReynolds' actions break the law?
Notice any common theme there? McReynold's name is mentioned in every case.
The stories also contained quotes from all kinds of area Dems, including John Lehman who is the Democratic candidate running against MccReynolds for the state Senate seat being vacated by Cathy Stepp.
Well when McReynolds was cleared of any wrong doing from this attack that was brought forward by a hyper-partisan liberal attack website see how the story was played differently.
Here was the headline:
- No violation found in bumper sale
That's it. When a left wing group goes on the attack McReynolds name is published everywhere in a slimy attempt to tie him to some scandal and hurt his electoral chances.
When he is cleared of any wrong doing what is done. A small little headline that does not mention his name at all.
In an environment full of corruption here we have an example of someone doing everything the right way. That is a story the Journal Times will not tell.
When a paper puts so much effort into a charge and investigation, and when the subject of that charge and investigation is cleared of any wrong doing, they have an ethical obligation to give just as much positive publicity as they did negative.
I reported earlier that when the corporate counsel in this case reported no wrong doing, the paper ignored that finding and instead reported that no governing body had yet ruled.
There is no doubt in my mind that the Racine Jounal Times supports the candidacy of John Lehman and is openly hostile to Bill McReynolds
That's bias folks.
The Racine paper has tossed any prescence of objectivity out the window in favor of using their pages to slime and attack Bill McReynolds in a completely unprofessional manner.
If you want to be an advocate, fine go ahead. Just admit it.
I know they read RDW at the Journal Times, if anyone would like to come forward with a statement I'd be happy to publish it.
Could it be that the taxpayers of eastern Racine County won't be hit up for a referendum in 2007? According to a story in the RJT, the school board is anticipating a budget surplus of $1.4 Million.
While I hope that my prediction of no new referendum comes true, I still have reservations. The 'C' word popped up numerous times in this article. How many consultants does RUSD retain the services of, and to what end? Perhaps the surplus could have been larger if the administrators and board members did their own analysis of the operations within the district, and made their own conclusions. What a novel idea!

By JASON TRAHAN / The Dallas Morning News
Dallas police are investigating a glitch that resulted in the loss of one of their "bait" cars.
Sometime between Friday and Monday, a car outfitted with cameras, tracking capabilities and a remote engine-kill system designed to catch auto thieves was stolen somewhere in Dallas – police would not say where.
They also would not identify the make and model of the car, so that if it is recovered, it can remain part of the undercover fleet.
It is likely that the thieves do not know they have stolen a car that, if police can remotely repair the tracking glitch, auto theft detectives could still possibly locate.
Anyone with information can call the auto theft unit at 214-671-3535.
The biggest beneficiaries have been Democrats, with Gov. Jim Doyle garnering the most of any candidate - about $926,000, including large sums from tribes funneled through Democratic Party committees in Washington.
Individual donations to Doyle accounted for only about $107,000 of the total. The rest flowed to national Democratic groups, who in turn have given to Doyle or the state party.
This sounds strangely close to what Tom Delay is acused of doing! I await the shouts of Wisconsin Democrats everywhere demanding Doyle return all donations of this ilk.
I await the state elections board to order Doyle to give all his ill gotten laundered money back.
Something tells me I'll be waiting a long time to hear from the partisan hating hacks from the left in this state.

If you recall, a liberal whacko group, Progressive Majority Wisconsin, made a charge of impropriety against Bill McReynolds for a company he used to be a partner in that made push bumpers that the county occasionally made purchases from.
All ethics forms were on file, and everything was in order...
That did not stop this group, headed by the former hatchet man of disgraced ex-Majority Leader and current felon Chuck Chvala, Doug Burnett making a big stink out of this nothing.
Strangely, the bio on Progressive Majority Wisconsin's web site makes no mention of Burnett's felonious former employer, or his own brush with the justice system, or that he let taxpayers pay $2,580 for his legal defense in the caucus scandal.
Well, the Racine DA referred the investigation into that charge to the Rock county DA, a Democrat.
The investigation showed McReynolds did nothing wrong.
Let me repeat that.
The investigation showed McReynolds did nothing wrong.
I await with baited breath the retraction from Burnett. (the odds of that are precisely 0%)
In addition the Racine Journal Times (a wholly owned subsidiary of Jim Doyle and the Democratic party of Wisconsin) had three screaming front page headlines trying to scare up this as a scandal.
I'm sure the Journal Times will put an equally large headline absolving Bill McReynolds of any wrongdoing.
Likewise, I wait to see the statement from John Lehman praising Bill Mcreynolds for showing how to do government business ethically. (the odds of that happening are also precisely 0%).
Can we get down to real issues now?
Well here is part of a column by former Clinton Aide Dick Morris on Clinton's ridiculous tirade on Fox News Sunday. This should get the party started.
The real Clinton emerges
From behind the benign façade and the tranquilizing smile, the real Bill Clinton emerged Sunday during Chris Wallace’s interview on Fox News Channel. There he was on live television, the man those who have worked for him have come to know – the angry, sarcastic, snarling, self-righteous, bombastic bully, roused to a fever pitch. The truer the accusation, the greater the feigned indignation. Clinton jabbed his finger in Wallace’s face, poking his knee, and invading the commentator’s space.
But beyond noting the ex-president’s non-presidential style, it is important to answer his distortions and misrepresentations. His self-justifications constitute a mangling of the truth which only someone who once quibbled about what the “definition of ‘is’ is” could perform.
Clinton told Wallace, “There is not a living soul in the world who thought that Osama bin Laden had anything to do with Black Hawk Down.” Nobody said there was. The point of citing Somalia in the run up to 9-11 is that bin Laden told Fortune Magazine in a 1999 interview that the precipitous American pullout after Black Hawk Down convinced him that Americans would not stand up to armed resistance.
Clinton said conservatives “were all trying to get me to withdraw from Somalia in 1993 the next day” after the attack which killed American soldiers. But the real question was whether Clinton would honor the military’s request to be allowed to stay and avenge the attack, a request he denied. The debate was not between immediate withdrawal and a six-month delay. (Then-first lady, now-Sen. Hillary Clinton (D-N.Y.) favored the first option, by the way). The fight was over whether to attack or pull out eventually without any major offensive operations.
The president told Wallace, “I authorized the CIA to get groups together to try to kill bin Laden.” But actually, the 9-11 Commission was clear that the plan to kidnap Osama was derailed by Sandy Berger and George Tenet because Clinton had not yet made a finding authorizing his assassination. They were fearful that Osama would die in the kidnapping and the U.S. would be blamed for using assassination as an instrument of policy.
Clinton claims “the CIA and the FBI refused to certify that bin Laden was responsible [for the Cole bombing] while I was there.” But he could replace or direct his employees as he felt. His helplessness was, as usual, self-imposed.

Something struck me.
Clinton was extremely combative and accused Wallace of having a preconceived agenda. Wallace was not combative and tried to play it down the middle.
Condi was extremely gracious while Katie had a preconceived agenda.
So what we had was a journalist acting like a journalist accused of being a hack, and an activist pretending to a journalist who was allowed to get away with it.
If you saw them BOTH feel free to comment on the disparity.

"The devil appears very sulphurous, and a few people say that he has given the order to kill me," Chavez said during a speech before scientists in western Venezuela.
"Many concerned friends have called me, (saying) that because I said 'devil' over there (at the UN), they have sentenced me to die. They will not kill me, I have much faith in life," Mr Chavez added.
The leftist Venezuelan leader called Mr Bush "the devil", "a liar" and a "tyrant" during his speech at the UN General Assembly on Wednesday, one day after the US President spoke from the same podium.
Mr Chavez again showed a copy of Hegemony or Survival overnight, a book by US academic Noam Chomsky that he had first held up during his address to the UN assembly.
He said he had to wash the book "with holy water because I put it in the same place that the devil put his papers."
Someone send this guy a shrink please.
