Cruising the Web

It's really rather amazing how well all these GOP debates have been doing in the ratings. Tuesday's debate drew 5.5 million viewers and pushed CNN to the number one spot among cable news viewers. And young people were tuning in both on TV or online. I guess that is just another indicator of how Republicans are excited about this election.

Romney's web ad attacking Rick Perry as not being ready to lead is harsh. All they had to do was splice together some of Perry's stumbling answers in recent debates pundit criticisms. And the Perry campaign has retaliated with their ad targeting Romney's "misleading" statements about health care and immigration.

Now that Vice President has gone on the record to say that, if the Republicans don't support the Democrats' new jobs bill that murders and rapes will rise, Allahpundit has some thoughts.
Since he’s taking this “you’re either with us or you’re with the rapists” logic seriously, I have to ask again: How did he and The One decide on the optimal amount of money for first responders in the new jobs bill, or as I’m now calling it, The Federal Rape Prevention Act of 2011? According to Tapper, they want $5 billion for cops (and firefighters) and … $30 billion for teachers. Important jobs all, but if we’re forced to choose between smaller class sizes in public schools and less rape, I’m thinking most of us want more money for the latter than for the former. How come Obama and Biden don’t agree? Are they really just pitiful stooges for the teachers’ unions? Or are they just soft on rape?

The very first question at the next Solyndra hearing should be, “How many rapes could Democrats have prevented by giving that $535 million to cops instead?”
Moderate Democrats are fighting "stimulus fatigue."

Here's a news flash for the OWS people: "bama has more cash from financial sector than GOP hopefuls combined, data show"

Philip Klein writes that the CLASS Act is just the tip of the iceberg of what is wrong with Obamacare.

If you have trouble sleeping, you might want to try listening to what is being billed as "the most relaxing song ever created."

Obama is finding a tougher environment
in North Carolina than he faced in 2008.
