My empty chair; A one sentence definition of Obamacare; Israel and God at the DNC; Arab delegates furious; Mitt requests civility; Michelle's viewership at DNC; Be wary of Obama claims;

 Here is my rendition of "the empty chair" representing Obama, enlarging on Clint Eastwood's "empty chair speech" at the RNC - We shall have to mop up his mess!
This spontaneous movement replacing the typical Labor Day honorees shows a wonderful sense of humor.  Actually, ridicule is one of Saul Alinsky's Rules for Radicals, the playbook of radical leftists, as it angers the target because it belittles him.

As townhall wrote: Saul Alinsky was a brilliant man. Evil, but brilliant. Unfortunately, whether we like it or not, everyone on the Left from the President on down is playing by his rules in the political arena. Not all liberals have read his book or know his name, but his tactics have become universal. Sadly for conservatives, when two evenly matched forces go head-to-head outside of a fairy tale, the side that tries to play nice usually ends up with its head in a box. So, don't lie or become an evil person like Alinsky, but learn from what he wrote and give the Left a taste of its own medicine.
[Some of those rules]: Always remember the first rule of power tactics: Power is not only what you have but what the enemy thinks you have. The second rule is: Never go outside the experience of your people.
…The third rule is: Wherever possible go outside the experience of the enemy. Here you want to cause confusion, fear, and retreat.
…the fourth rule is: Make the enemy live up to their own book of rules.
…the fourth rule carries within it the fifth rule: Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon.
If you will take the time to watch this short video, you will be amazed at Dr. Barbara Gellar, candidate for the Illinois State Senate, as she describes in one long sentence just what Obamacare represents.

For those of you who won't go there and get a chuckle, here is her sentence: "Let me get this straight.  We are going to be gifted with a healthcare plan we are forced to purchase and fined if we don't; which purportedly covers at least 10 million new people without adding a single new doctor, but which provides 16,000 new IRS agents; written by a committee whose chairman says he doesn't understand it; passed by a Congress that didn't read it, but exempted themselves from it; signed by a President who smokes; with funding administered by a Treasury Chief who didn't pay his taxes; for which we will be taxed for four years before any benefits take effect; by a government which has already bankrupted Social Security, Medicaid and Medicare; all to be overseen by a Surgeon General who is obese; and financed by a country that's already broke........   So what the blank could possible go wrong?"
[Concerning the contentious issue of Israel in the DNC platform] Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, the Convention chairman, needed to take three separate votes to get the motion passed and he was booed when he ruled it in. That’s because the crowd of delegates on the floor sounded more split 50-50, than having delivered the two-thirds majority needed, CBS 2′s Marcia Kramer reported.
Jewish leaders reacted swiftly.
“The principle that Jerusalem should remain united and is the capital of Israel has been enshrined for a long time,” said Malcolm Hoenlein, the Executive Vice Chairman of the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations.
“It concerns me. It concerns every Jew,” said Chanina Sperlin, Executive VP of the Crown Heights Council. “It’s a big mistake leaving that out of the party platform.”
Many Palestinians were also annoyed. They want Jerusalem as the capital of a Palestinian state.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- The president of a top Arab American group is lashing out at the 11th hour political maneuvering that restored language about Israel capital to the Democratic convention platform — calling the move “insulting to my community.”
Dr. James Zogby, president of the Arab American Institute, a DNC delegate and a member of the convention’s platform committee, blasted the re-insertion of language affirming that Jerusalem is the capital of Israel in an interview with POLITICO.
“I think it was embarrassing,” Zogby said. “What bothers me is the way it was done.”
Mitt Romney's campaign issued a statement Wednesday demanding Democratic officials "cease and desist from comparing those with whom they disagree to Nazis" after the chairman of the South Carolina Democratic Party compared Gov. Nikki Haley (R-S.C.) to Adolf Hitler mistress Eva Braun.
"The latest offender is Dick Harpootlian, the South Carolina Democratic Party chairman, whose outrageous words I will not repeat," said former Sen. Norm Coleman (Minn.) in a statement released by the Romney campaign. "In recent days, we’ve seen similarly disgraceful statements from a top Kansas Democratic delegate and from the chairman of the California Democratic Party.
"President Obama has called for civility in American politics. If his call is to be taken seriously, it’s time for the President to rein in those of his supporters and allies who are trivializing Nazism while also shamelessly trampling on the most basic rules of American political discourse.”
Overall, the speech [Michelle Obama's] attracted around 11 million viewers on the three broadcast networks. That’s about 400,000 fewer viewers than watched Ann Romney’s speech. But, the really bad news for Obama is the massive drop in viewers from 2008.
NBC won the coverage, as it did for the RNC last week. But, its viewership was down 24% from ’08. For its RNC coverage on the first night, viewership was actually 8% higher than ’08.

Be wary of these 5 claims by Obama

“I’m also going to ask anybody making over $250,000 a year to go back to the tax rates they were paying under Bill Clinton.”
Here, Obama is defending his proposal to boost taxes on the wealthy by noting that the tax rate would be the same as under Clinton. The Bush tax cut set the top rate on income at 35 percent; Obama would restore it to the 39.6 percent rate set during Clinton’s presidency.
But while Social Security taxes are capped, there is no cap on Medicare payroll taxes. Obama does not mention that the health-care law included a 0.9 percent Medicare surtax on incomes over $200,000 for individuals and $250,000 for couples filing joint returns. -
“Nearly 7 million young people have health insurance because they’re able to stay on their parents’ plans.”
Obama has framed this assertion different ways, sometimes more accurately than the quote above.
The Department of Health and Human Services reported in June that more than 3 million young adults would not have health insurance without the health-care law. So how does Obama get to say that nearly 7 million “have insurance” because of the law?
The total number of jobs — private and government — created in the United States from February 2010 until now is 4 million. The job-growth number is still negative if you start counting from the beginning of Obama’s presidency.
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, job creation in Obama’s presidency is plus or minus a few hundred thousand jobs, depending on whether you date his presidency from January or February. At this point, Obama is on track to have the worst jobs record of any president since World War II.
