From Glenn;

A READER AT A MAJOR NEWSROOM EMAILS: "Off the record, every suspicion you have about MSM being in the tank for O is true. We have a team of 4 people going thru dumpsters in Alaska and 4 in arizona. Not a single one looking into Acorn, Ayers or Freddiemae. Editor refuses to publish anything that would jeopardize election for O, and betting you dollars to donuts same is true at NYT, others. People cheer when CNN or NBC run another Palin-mocking but raising any reasonable inquiry into obama is derided or flat out ignored. The fix is in, and its working." I asked permission to reprint without attribution and it was granted.

UPDATE: The Anchoress hears similar things. And reader Eric Schubert: "The Edwards debacle was proof enough of where the heart of the MSM lies, and lack of curiousity of the press about Edwards probably cost Hillary the nomination. And that shameful episode offers a warning to the MSM. What if Obama does have a skeleton in his closet (such as a shady deal or outright bribe) that is revealed after he wins the election? While the chance of this scenario is remote, imagine the backlash against the MSM if it could be shown that a reasonable investigation by the MSM would have easily revealed this secret to the public prior to the election?"

ANOTHER UPDATE: Rand Simberg isn't so sure: "Where was the backlash against this about Bill Clinton in 1992? They just seem to continue to get away with it." Well, yes and no. Their reputation and readership/viewership keep falling. And layoffs keep happening. I think they're willing to pull out all the stops because they realize this is the last election where they have a chance at swinging things this way. No point saving your credibility for the future when you don't have a future, I guess . . . .

This...could be wild.

A Video Every Single Person Needs To See

Go here...watch this...and if it gets removed (again) here is the user who posted it. It will likely be up again!

Every bit of information that Democrats don't want you to know about the economic crisis.

President Bush publicly called for regulation of Fannie Mae multiple times, starting as early as April 2001, and heavily cautioned it in 2003.

The bill that John McCain co-sponsored in 2005, and was rejected by Democrats...including Barack Obama.

And one final note...Barack Obama collected almost $106,000 in lobbying from Freddie Mae in just 3 years. FOUR TIMES the annual amount of the next highest person, Hillary Clinton.

Watch the video, then ask yourself who is responsible for the economic crisis.

A True Obamanation Takes On P.C.

An excellent spoof on the Mac and P.C. Commercials that had my sides splitting at a VERY well placed one-liner.

Whoopi Doesn't Know History

Here is a transcript of part of The View...

ELISABETH HASSELBECK: There has also been a question burning amongst voters and actually our viewers, and that is the question of Roe v. Wade. And as president, if you were, no softballs coming from me, even though you have my vote. Would you as president work to overturn that? And then would Sarah Palin be working to overturn Roe v. Wade?

SENATOR JOHN McCAIN (R-AZ): I think what we would be doing is appointing or nominating justices to the United States Supreme Court and other courts who strictly interpret the Constitution of the United States. We would not impose a litmus test on any issue because that’s not fair to the American people. But they would have to have a clear record of strict interpretation.

BARBARA WALTERS: That’s kind of the other way of saying people who would want to overturn Roe v. Wade.

McCAIN: That, that, well, that is saying that, I believe Roe v. Wade was a very bad decision, Barbara. [audience groans] I think it was a bad decision. I thought other, I thought other decisions of the United States Supreme Court were bad decisions. But I want people on the Court who, quote, "do interpret" and not just on the issue of Roe v. Wade, but on other issues.

WHOOPI GOLDBERG: Do I have to be worried about becoming a slave again?

McCAIN: My interpretation of the Constitution of the United States is that the United States Supreme Court enforces the Constitution of the United States and does not legislate nor invent areas that are responsibilities, according to the Constitution, of the legislative branch.

HASSELBECK: So it was in how the law came up, it was in how Roe v. Wade came apart was the issue. You, you want it to be through the Constitution from the people not from the bench.

McCAIN: And I believe that if Roe v. Wade were overturned, then the states would make these decisions.


McCAIN: Yes?

GOLDBERG: Can you just, and I don’t want to misinterpret what you’re saying. Did you say you wanted strict Constitutionalists? Because that, that-

McCAIN: No, I want people who interpret the Constitution of the United States the way our founding fathers envision-

GOLDBERG: Does that-

McCAIN: -for them to do.

GOLDBERG: Should I be worried about being a slave, about being returned to slavery because certain things happened in the Constitution that you had to change.

McCAIN: I, I understand your point.

GOLDBERG: Okay, okay.

McCAIN: I understand that point and I, I, [applause] thank you. That’s an excellent point.

GOLDBERG: Thank you sir.

McCAIN: And I thank you.

WALTERS: Before we go, before we go, just to give a different picture because you talk- [laughter]

GOLDBERG: I got scared.

JOY BEHAR: She’s picturing herself on the plantation.

GOLDBERG: I got scared. I gotta start running.

WALTERS: You and Sherri, we’ll take care of you. Us white folk will take care of you.


Whoopi asks the question not once, but twice.

Maybe Whoopi should actually READ the Constitution.

The Thirteenth Amendment of the United States Constitution;
Section 1. Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, except as a punishment for crime where of the party shall have been duly convicted, shall exist within the United States, or any place subject to their jurisdiction.

Section 2. Congress shall have the power to enforce this article by appropriate legislation.

I wonder if she is also worried that only white people will be allowed to vote, or that women won't be allowed to vote if "strict constitutionalists" are appointed as a judges.

Radical Islam Threatens Sir Paul

As Israel celebrates it's 60th anniversary as a sovereign state, radical Islamic Preacher Omar Bakri has a message for him.
Self-styled preacher of hate Omar Bakri claimed the former Beatle’s decision to take part in the Jewish state’s 60th anniversary celebrations had made him an enemy of all Muslims.

Sources said Sir Paul was shocked but refused to be intimidated.


“Instead of supporting the people of Palestine in their suffering, McCartney is celebrating the atrocities of the occupiers. The one who is under occupation is supposed to be getting the help.

“And so I believe for Paul McCartney, what he is doing really is creating more enemies than friends.”

Explaining his comments, Bakri told the Sunday Express: “Our enemy’s friend is our enemy.

“Thus Paul McCartney is the enemy of every Muslim. We have what we call ‘sacrifice’ operatives who will not stand by while he joins in a celebration of their oppression.

“If he values his life Mr McCartney must not come to Israel. He will not be safe there. The sacrifice operatives will be waiting for him.”

In the report, Bakri also states that the next 9/11 will happen in Britain.

Again..."Religion of Peace?"

Failing American Colleges

In a test of 60 questions, no college in America scored over a 70 in terms of economics, foreign policy and government.

I was fortunate enough to get an 80 (I got 48/60).

I missed #’s 5, 15, 18, 19, 23, 27, 33, 35, 37, 38, 42, and 50.

Go try it!

Yay For My Sister!

My sister, Michelle has finally had enough of griping to me about her frustrations towards Obama and his adoring fans in the media. Therefore she has created her own blog, Lamb in the Lion's Den.

It's very aptly named since like The Man, she is in the north-east where liberalism is as common as grass. Wait...bad analogy for that region. Liberalism is as common as a high-rise building in Manhattan. Better!

Her blog is new, but it is very informed. I was impressed at some of the information she had dug up. Like the fact that the media has latched on to Todd Palin's DUI 22 years ago, but not Obama's admitted drug use about the same time. Or, how they have also pitched the stories about Bristol Palin's unwed pregnancy at the age of 17, but they make no comment about how Obama's mother was only 18 when she gave birth to Barack, and was not married until after he was concieved. Nor do they mention the fact that even though Bristol is pregnant, she is accepting the consequences of her actions rather than feeling like she has been "punished with a baby" and aborting it.

Chekc it out...NOW!

I'm Back!

GOP & College here, with my new blog, "Red State, Blue City." After graduating from Tennessee Tech, I took a job outside of Atlanta and moved down here. It is definitely an oasis of liberalism in the middle of a deep red state.

After posting for many years under the shadow of an pseudonym, I've decided to step out into the light here at my new site.

So this is me!

My actual name is Robert Swick, and yes, I did graduate with my mechanical engineering degree August 2nd of 2008. I graduated with right at a 3.0, after starting in August of 2003 (but I took a 1 year co-op with Magotteaux in there). That's me at graduation.

And of course there is the College-ette!

This is her and me in Destin, Florida for a wedding on the beach. We've been dating for almost 4 years now, and although we don't have a date set yet, she said yes when I asked her to be my wife!
