Cruising the Web

A photo album of things that you didn't build and that somebody else made happen.

Are Obama's attacks on Romney's Bain experience working?

How California Democrats manipulated the system to get Jerry Brown's tax hike proposal at the top of the ballot.

Contrary to liberal arguments, Citizens United isn't responsible for the money being spent this year in the election. A very illuminating analysis.

Byron York analyzes how the "vaunted Romney Death Star" has broken down in the general election.

Sean Trende analyzes the plus/minus factors for all the people spoken of as possible Romney running mate and finds that Tim Pawlenty scores the highest. How 'meh' that would be.

To give you an idea of how little help there would be to cover federal spending for the next decade if we adopted the President's proposals to let tax rates expire for the top earners and restoring estate, gift, and generational taxes would be, Veronique de Rugy has a handy chart putting those amounts in context.

The Romney campaign asks "Where did all the stimulus money go?" And, surprisingly, Chuck Schumer has the answer.

Is what this country really needs hope in "the belief in things not seen"? That's Obama's prescription.

Antonin Scalia: grammarian SNOOT.

It was the One Percenters, not the federal government that built the Golden Gate Bridge.

Here's a demographic that is not usually mentioned in electoral politics: small business owners. And Obama just ticked off a whole lot of them.

Obama's Jobs Council hasn't met in six months. And several of the companies whose CEOs are on the panel are involved in outsourcing. How evil is that?

CBS News labels this the "worst economic recover America has ever had."

The context for Obama's riff on how small businesses didn't make it on their own doesn't make it any better.

I'm totally with Kobe Bryant on this: David Stern's under-23 proposal for Olympic basketball is a dumb idea.
