the Morning Briefing every morning at no charge.
You have not stopped Barack Obama. You have not, to paraphrase P. J. O’Rourke, served the restraining order. You have not made this country safe. You have not stopped the advance of socialism in this country. You have not stopped the Democrats from destroying the economy. You, all of you, have won nothing. NOTHING. And it will stay that way — imaginary wins, fictitious actions against an elite hostile toward the idea of America — unless you vote on November 2nd. You, me, all of us, we have won not one damn race. Many have decided it is in the bag. Many have decided they’ve done all they can, given all the can, and are now resting. Don’t rest. The election is exactly seven days from day. You have won not one race. But you can. Vote. And then the real fight begins November 3rd. In the meantime, here again are the top 99 races in the country. The GOP only needs 39. 37 are already swinging their way. Bold picks are my personal favorites. Give money. Volunteer. Pray.

One paragraph in a story about a Chicago politician teaming up with the SEIU to get out the vote on November 2nd says a lot about the SEIU and its views of African Americans. It is one thing for the SEIU to send in paid (and unpaid) operatives to get people out to vote, it is quite another for them to target a race because they are more “persuadable” than others.

Here’s a really good rule of thumb: when you’ve done something not only dumb, but actually vile – in this case, if you’ve declared that wearing your country’s uniform for twenty-four years is not ‘public service*’ – don’t compound the error later by trying to explain it away. Jim Moran (D, VA-08) apparently does not understand this rule of thumb, which is why he is now trying to try to walk back from the aforementioned vile thing that he said about Patrick Murray.

Today brings us the latest report from Senators Coburn and Barrasso, the two Republican physicians who’ve been doggedly following up on all the things we were promised about Obamacare, particularly the ones that have already turned out to be flat-out lies (”The gall!” shrieks a Democrat Hill staffer). Much of the report is based on combining the findings of the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office (CBO) and news reports following up with people who’ve already felt the law’s impact. Central to this issue: the impact of the legislation on America’s unemployment picture. Remember when Nancy Pelosi promised the health care bill would create four million jobs — “400,000 of them almost immediately?” Let’s go to the videotape. Please click here for the rest of the post.
Democrat Bob Etheridge [NC-2] seems to have a problem with questions. He just cannot find it in himself to answer them. When students asked him last year if he supported the Obama Agenda, Bob Etheridge assaulted them. During a recent debate, Republican Renee Ellmers challenged the Obama Agenda-loving Etheridge* and asked how he believed the federal government could handle one-sixth of the economy better than free enterprise system. Bob Etheridge’s answer was really not surprising. Please click here for the rest of the post.
Last week, it was revealed that the government workers’ union AFSCME is spending $87.5 million to try to keep Democrats from being defeated on November 2nd. Interestingly, some people seemed shocked by this. They really shouldn’t be though. For decades, America’s union bosses have touted a desire to be more like their European counterparts and they’ve figured out the only way for them to accomplish this is through the political process. As November 2nd quickly approaches, however, the headlines across Europe should give Americans who are footing the bill for the government workers some pause before traipsing down the path to Paris.
