Cruising the web

This is an amazing statistic.
58.6 percent of Americans are employed — 1 percentage point higher than in 1956.

That’s right: Despite the dramatic influx of women into the workforce, employment rates under Obama are barely surpassing those recorded in the middle of the 1950s. That’s according to official tallies from the federal government’s Bureau of Labor Statistics.
The Obama campaign has spent $25 million on ads, some of it attacking Romney and the GOP and some of it praising himself and he hasn't managed to move the needle.

The Democrats' battle on paycheck fairness is totally bogus.
Do Democrats really believe there is a war on women in the workplace -- in their own offices, no less -- or do they simply want to lord over every aspect of the employer-employee relationship?

Charles Krauthammer explains the real importance of Walker's victory on Tuesday.

Peggy Noonan notes Barack Obama's flight from leadership.
No one even looks to him for leadership now. He doesn't go to Wisconsin, where the fight is. He goes to Sarah Jessica Parker's place, where the money is.

Don't be fooled by the claims
made by those who push for grocery plastic bag bans.
There is, now, a house-of-cards feel about this administration.

Way to go Barbara Walters. She intervened to get the media aide to Bashaar al-Assad who had helped Walters get an interview get admitted to Columbia University.

Jay Cost explains how the media is misinterpreting poll results.

Does Obama have anything going for him besides his celebrity endorsements? Well, there is also the mainstream media.

Maybe the Mayans were right about doomsday arriving in 2012.
