Chris Christie’s treachery of Mitt Romney has earned him praise from Progressives. Bill Maher has now joined the Chris Christie fan club. He says that Christie is the type of Republican he can embrace.

    And if I gave a flying f*ck what Bill Maher thought about anything, that might be interesting.

    OT because I don’t want to even think about Maher:

    I’ve thought a lot about why those of us who believe in liberty as a solution, have done so poorly in convincing others of its benefits. If liberty is what we claim it is, the principle that protects all personal, social, and economic decisions necessary for maximum prosperity and the best chance for peace, it should be an easy sell. Yet history has shown that the masses have been quite receptive to the promises of authoritarians, which are rarely, if ever, fulfilled. Should we have authoritarianism, or liberty?

    Latest news from the Philly suburbs-
    There’s a local talk show host, Larry Mendte, who has been collecting people’s personal stories of observed election fraud in Philly on election day. Mendte called the speaker of the PA House of Representatives and asked him if he would do an investigation into the voting problems in Philly. The guy refused. Mendte gave out the guy’s official phone number and told people to call his office. When people called, they were either 1)Hung up on 2)sent to voice mail and promised return calls (right) or 3) Told to call back at which point 1 or 2 happened to them. People got ticked and got more people to call and they eventually overwhelmed the phone lines. Now the PA Speaker is mad at Mendte because how DARE someone ask for the crap in Philly to finally be dealt with?!?!

    @ 9 livefreeor die: I will still support the GoP presidential candidate but I am for smaller government. along the libertadarian lines. If the GoP does squat here with the voter fraud and not make it into a national stink I would fail to see why they have enough fight in them to win the next election cycle. I’m talking to GoP people but there seems to be a density to get through.

    http://www.iq1069.com/2012/11/14/cheating-and-fraud-in-the-2012-election/ He says that a few urban cities in swing states stole the election for Obama by voter fraud. The polling places in philly kicked out the GoP so they could pad totals. That Romney was up everywhere in Pennslyvania and Obama was down, except in Philly where Romney got zero votes.

    Some people have to go to jail for voter fraud this year to stop this. The GoP doesn’t seem to think it is a big deal.

    K-Hammer tells it like it is.
    Krauthammer to Obama: ‘Why the Hell’ Have Rice Address Benghazi If She ‘Had Nothing To Do With It?’

    Well, you called it his one show of passion. I would say it was his usual show of indignation which is his default response whenever he feels defensive or backed into a corner. You know, “How dare you attack my UN ambassador?” And he gives the strangest defense by saying, “She didn’t have anything to do with the Benghazi affair.” Well then why the hell are you sending her out there? Why don’t you send, why didn’t you send out the Secretary of State or the CIA director or Panetta or somebody who did know?

    And then he does play this sort of Lancelot defending the mistress in distress. You know, it made Mitt Romney and the binders with women look positively feminist in comparison. This kind of patronizing attack on the two male Senators who would dare attack the girl, which is what was intended in his tone. This is all its usual, you know, if you attack his pride he’ll strike you on that. And it was clearly defensive, and it was also a stonewall.

    I mean, after all, what she said was absolutely and completely misleading either inadvertently, in which case is complete incompetence, or on purpose in which case it’s deception. And he basically he took the bait on that and said, “Look, that wasn’t her speaking. That was me speaking. If you want to pick on somebody, pick on me.”

    Well how can anybody pick on him or even question him if he hasn’t had a press conference in eight months? You know, he clearly hasn’t been out there. He’s been hiding behind inquiries, behind investigations, and now behind Susan Rice.

    But now I think he’s out there, and he’s vulnerable on this. I think he may regret having said that.

    Fed Housing Authority needs dough from the taxpayers

    WASHINGTON (MarketWatch) — The Federal Housing Administration is expected to report later this week that it could exhaust its reserves because of rising mortgage delinquencies, The Wall Street Journal reported, citing people familiar with the matter. That could result in the agency needing to draw on taxpayer funding for the first time in its 78-year history, the report said. The decision won’t be made until February, and Congress would not need to authorize any funding because it has “permanent and indefinite” budget authority, the report added.

    This is what Ann Barnhardt has to say about Petraeus. I think she is the re-incarnation of Joan of Arc.

    “Am I surprised that Petraeus and Allen and the rest are pathetic, pervy fornicators with the common sense of a pile of toenail clippings? Am I surprised that Petraeus was sending dozens and dozens of emails per day to his girlfriend and that their pillowtalk included national secuity secrets? Am I surprised that Petraues and Allen have spent their careers walking around with a “BLACKMAIL ME” sign taped to their backs? Nope. These people are imbeciles and psychopaths who implemented and oversaw rules of engagement that have intentionally gotten our boys killed as a literal sacrifice of total submission to islam.”

    My gut feeling is that things are happening very quickly. While everyone is jockeying for position, the people in the Middle East and in Europe are suffering economic and physical dislocations.

    Time for a love story:

    A couple was Christmas shopping at the mall on Christmas Eve and
    the mall was packed.

    As the wife walked through the mall she was
    surprised to look up and see
    her husband was nowhere around. She was quite
    upset because they had a lot
    to do. Because she was so worried, she called
    him on her mobile phone to
    ask him where he was.

    In a calm voice, the
    husband said, “Honey, you remember the jewelry store
    we went into about 5
    years ago where you fell in love with that diamond
    necklace that we could not
    afford and I told you that I would get it for
    you one day?”

    The wife choked up and started to cry and said, “Yes, I remember that
    jewelry store.”

    He said, “Well, I’m in the bar right next to it.”

    The Arab spring started with food riots. That situation will get worse. We have an energy boom that even Obama can’t kill, that will further strain the Middle East countries that went Islamist as the price of oil declines in value. What is the traditional Arab response to problems at home? War. It’s coming and it’s one more giant headache for Obama on top of everything else. He’s going to be sorry he won, he may even resign rather than deal with all the problems he helped create, he’ll use Benghazi as an excuse, look like he’s taking the blame for all the mistakes his underlings made, kind of like Hillary did. He likes being President but loathes the job, what has he ever done? Obamacare? Pelosi and Reid. Libya? Jarret and Rice. Osama? SEAL Team Six.

    Another big mess that a sluggish American economy will exacerbate. Should we go into another recession the EU may actually collapse. I’m not even sure Obama wants to avoid the fiscal cliff. He might push for more and more concessions in order to bring it about and think he can blame the Republicans for the resulting mess. Remember he and Boehner had a deal for spending cuts and tax hikes until Obama upped the ante. Here’s the argument. That would guarantee a double dip.

    As Chris Matthews said before the election, it’s the media’s job to make him successful.

    I suspect that things are different for the director, who’s a political appointee, than they are for regular employees (and it’s probably the case at all federal agencies).

    So we carefully screen the grunts but the head of the agency gets a pass? That’s insane.

    Which leads me to believe you’re right. I thought I heard some talking heads on FOX saying otherwise but I can’t find anything on the Google.

    The director of the CIA isn’t actively involved in operations, any more than the FBI director is out solving crimes (or, for that matter, a 4 star general is out fighting the Taliban).

    They give general direction to their agencies, but they probably don’t know that many operational details to give away if they wanted to.

    The administration can offer $ 50 in “cuts” for each new tax dollar, no problem, as the “cuts” are mythical and way down the road. Other than things like defense, any “cuts” scheduled to takeplace in the next 4 years will take effect only if totally unrealistic economic projections are met.

    Aw, now you’ve gone and rogered the thread.

    Where did that phrase originate from, BTW?

    In the spring of 2003, the Kelleys hosted a dinner party at Tampa’s Palm Restaurant to celebrate their decision to make their adopted city a permanent home. Among the select group of Tampa’s business, government and military elite were Marine Lt. Gen. Michael “Rifle” DeLong, then second in command to Gen. Tommy Franks at CentCom, former Mayor Dick Greco and his wife, Linda, and retired Tampa Tribune columnist Tom Mc­Ewen.

    DeLong’s wife, Kathy, recalls meeting Jill Kelley, 37, at a “patriotic function in Tampa.”

    “They (the twins) could work a room better than any politician,” she said. “They’re bright, fun, just who you’d want at your party.”

    The DeLongs began including them at base functions, “and once you’re on the list, you’re on the list,” she said. That friendship extended to Gen. John Abizaid, who ran CentCom from July 2003 to March 2007.

    “They really connected because of their shared Lebanese heritage,” said DeLong.

    Why not? Is libertarinaism opposed to Christianity nowadays? I used to consider myself Libertarian, but they went nuts after 9-11. And when Ron Paul is the spokes-hole for your movement, your movement is pretty dead.

    @ Rodan:

    There will be no real cuts anywhere except defense. There haven’t been since the Reagan Administration. Their concept of “cuts” is that Big Government expands more slowly, not that it shrinks in any meaningful way. I say except defense, where they want to gut it. I think Obama will push us over the Ciff and into Sequestration and try (probably successfully) to blame the Republicans. I think that has been his strategy all along.

    Libertarians give libertarianism a bad name.
