Obama has taken over mainstream media; Obama's tribute to Neil Armstrong; Will Harry Reid apologize?; Code Pink protests at RNC; Obama's personal likeability advantage has disappeared; Obama adviser says Obama must be defeated; Children banned from DNC War on Women convention floor; ACORN back under 174 new names

Award-winning actor Jon Voight told The Daily Caller at the Republican National Convention that he thinks President Barack Obama’s administration has “taken over” the mainstream media in a manner similar to how leftist Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez controls media in his country.
“The media has been taken over by this administration,” Voight, an outspoken Hollywood conservative, said in an interview with TheDC. “It’s not less than what has happened in Venezuela with Hugo Chavez, really, because you can’t get the information through. I’m giving you this because I want to get the press my opinion. You can put it in any way you want to. But, it’s become pure propaganda and we should be appalled.”
Obama took to his tumblr page to offer a tribute to Neil Armstrong. The words–two sentences–are fine in a generic politician way. But, Obama being Obama, he injected himself into the tribute. He included a photo, not of Armstrong or the iconic step onto the lunar surface, but of himself, gazing up at the moon. http://www.libertynews.com/2012/08/27/obama-posts-photo-of-himself-in-his-armstrong-tribute/
Even though he has not released his returns from earlier years, the 2010 return sheds some light on those years.
That’s because Mr. Romney paid income tax to foreign countries, and as result claimed in 2010 a $129,697 foreign tax credit, which he used to offset taxes he owed in the United States. American taxpayers who claim the foreign tax credit are required to report their total foreign taxes paid and tax credits used for the previous 10 years. So that return contains foreign tax data going back to 2000.
The good news for Mr. Romney is the forms suggest that he paid at least some federal income tax every year, as he has said he did. He used the foreign tax credit every year to offset his taxes in the United States, and American taxpayers can’t use a tax credit if they owe no federal income tax. http://www.weeklystandard.com/blogs/new-york-times-reports-romney-paid-federal-taxes-will-harry-reid-apologize_650849.html
Giant, walking vaginas have descended upon the Republican National Convention.
Several demonstrators from the feminist group Code Pink wore frilly pink costumes while others adorned with cardboard cutouts resembling the sexual organ were milling about Sunday looking for Republicans.- https://apps.facebook.com/thrsocial/news/tampa-republican-conventions-code-pink-vagina-protesters-365541
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- President Obama’s “personal likeability advantage has disappeared” for the first time in his presidency among the majority of voters who are now assessing Obama primarily on his job performance, according to a recently released national survey of likely voters. http://freebeacon.com/unlikeable-obama/

Obama’s Former Law Professor & 2008 Adviser: ‘Obama Must be Defeated in the Coming Election’

“President Obama must be defeated in the coming election. He has failed to advance the progressive cause in the United States,” the Harvard Law professor and Brazilian politician announced in a video published on YouTube.
“He has spent trillions of dollars to rescue the moneyed interests and left workers and homeowners to their own devices,” Unger added, also saying that Obama’s policies amount to “financial confidence and food stamps.”http://www.theblaze.com/stories/obamas-former-law-professor-2008-adviser-obama-must-be-defeated-in-the-coming-election/
The Democratic National Convention has just banned children from the convention floor — including breastfeeding babies — unless those children have convention credentials. Which, needless to say, is relatively unlikely.
It is not clear what motivated this particular policy. However, in a development that may surprise some people, the move has infuriated the party’s feminist luminaries. Feminist icon Gloria Steinem issued a statement to the Charlotte Observer slamming the policy:
“Women are the key to a Democratic victory, and sometimes, children are the key to women,” Steinem said in a statement. “It’s both right and smart for the Democratic Convention to behave as if children exist.”  [And in another stroke of brilliance, at a convention demonizing Republicans for their so-called War on Women, they have President Bill Clinton as a prime speaker.] http://www.theblaze.com/stories/democratic-national-convention-bans-babies-and-now-the-feminists-are-upset/#
They’re back. 
This week, Cause of Action, a nonprofit focusing on government accountability released a full list of re-branded former ACORN entities, still-active ACORN entities, and ACORN allies. The list is a shocking 174 organizations long. It includes the federally funded Affordable Housing Centers of America (AHCOA) – the successor to ACORN – and the Mutual Housing Authority of New York (MHANY). MHANY is affiliated with the New York Communities for Change, a re-branded ACORN entity, which brags that the Obama Housing and Urban Development Department has approved it as a housing counselor. According to MHANY, it receives funds from the Federal Home Loan Bank, HUD, and Fannie Mae. http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Government/2012/08/23/ACORN-back
