A Short List Of News Two Days Prior to the Election!

Fox News reports: The Justice Department is sending a small pack of election observers to Arizona as Hispanic groups sound the alarm over an anti-illegal immigration group's mass e-mail seeking to recruit Election Day volunteers to help block illegal immigrants from voting.
Hispanic voting rights groups say the e-mail is just an attempt to intimidate minority voters. [What?  If they are voting legally there will be no problem.  This IS the law in America!] But election fraud monitors say that there are hundreds of examples of duplicate registrations, wrong information and past unregistered voters getting ballots.
Voter fraud allegations have emerged just days before the midterm in many crucial battleground states across the country, including Nevada, Pennsylvania and Florida.
The Justice Department [whom we have learned to distrust] announced Friday it would deploy more than 400 federal observers to 30 jurisdictions in 18 states ahead of Tuesday's election. But Arizona officials say the department had already committed to sending observers to their state.
NPR and Newsweek really respects us, according to Newsbusters: NPR's Nina Totenberg said Friday that she's very afraid of the upcoming elections.  Newsweek's Evan Thomas, her co-panelist on "Inside Washington," said historians might look upon November 2, 2010 "as kind of a joke...obviously the political system’s a mess"
"There is sort of a circus aspect to it that people, it’s become comic and a kind of a dark way."
Isn't it amazing how these same people that were thrilled by the idea of America electing as president a junior senator from Illinois with little qualifications for the most important office in the land are now scared to death about who may be going to Congress next January?  [I do like Michele Bachman's idea to spend some time in Congress giving lessons on the Constitution, more for the Democrats than for new Republican Congressmen, however.]
Oozes with hypocrisy, doesn't it?

New York Magazine actually ran this without correcting the President's diatribe (well, they did say "somewhat dubiously):  According to President Obama, some pesky "young people" protesting for more global AIDS funding have been showing up "at every rally" and interrupting him. Today, in Connecticut to discuss the economy, Obama addressed these crazy young people, and ended up addressing AIDS funding in the process. The president put his planned remarks on hold and said:
"Excuse me, excuse me, excuse me, young people? Let me just say this: You've been appearing at every rally we've been doing, and we're funding global AIDS, and the other side is not. So I don't know why you think this is a useful strategy to take. I think it would make a lot more sense for you guys to go to the folks who aren't interested in funding global AIDS, and go to that rally. We're trying to figure out how to finance the things that you want financed. You guys have made your point. Let's go."
Our Liar In Chief told a whopper this time.  Now read this, from the Bush Administration era......
  For the fifth consecutive year since the Republican takeover of Congress, the House advanced a spending measure which would increase funding for AIDS treatment and services millions of dollars above the budget request of President Clinton.

The House Appropriations Labor/HHS Subcommittee set an increase of $107 million for the Ryan White CARE Act in Fiscal Year 2000 (7.6%), with a crucial increase in the AIDS Drug Assistance Program (ADAP), a state-administered program which funds direct access to life-saving and life-extending AIDS drug treatments for patients who are uninsured or underinsured and do not qualify for Medicaid. [Wait a minute!  But I thought, according to Obama's campaign speeches, that HE will BEGIN to care for the sick in America, at last...]
"The Republican Congress has acted wisely and prudently, and has preserved health care priorities for people with HIV/AIDS amidst budget conflicts," said James Driscoll, Log Cabin national AIDS policy advisor. "In addition, Congress put in a 9% increase for AIDS research programs at the National Institutes of Health, while President Clinton only requested a 2% increase. This shows Chairman Porter's far-sighted leadership in crafting a sound federal AIDS strategy.  [As you can tell, even the policy advisor for AIDS knows that the Bush Administration was good to them.  Where is the media, and why aren't they pointing this out to be a lie??  It is time to start looking for an honorable President who does not lie with vigor to Americans.  I have had enough of him and Democrats, haven't you?]   
                                   What to do?                Go   forth   and    V-O-T-E!!!

  1. He is the "LIAR in Chief" for sure, no doubt about it! Way to go in smoking out the TRUTH about funding of Aids. This guy just never ceases to amaze...I guess he thinks we really are all stupid and can be manipulated.
