RE:"That's pretty astounding news! Obama has accomplished what both Clinton and Bush failed at, over 16 years."

Yes, he was in office when Kim Jong-Il passed and his son came to reason.

Stocks Return More With Democrat in White House

Sorry, I'm not buying it. First of all, the stock market is a leading indicator, so the calculation should start a year before the new occupant's policies go into effect. A Democrat usually starts off with low expectations. Why start with Kennedy? Would the steady growth of the Eisenhower years change the picture? And the once-in-a-generation dot-com bubble of the 1990s skews the results (likewise the '60s). Then there's also the Congress to consider.

I remember seeing a similar chart in 1968 with the thesis that Democrats always get us into a war. Think of it: Wilson, Roosevelt, Truman, Kennedy/Johnson. Of course, Bush I and II changed that picture.

Don't sell me:

"Before Reagan, Republicans were fiscal conservatives. Ever since, they've been enamored with voodoo economics, the idea that cutting taxes is always good."

Message 27969997

"I'm a Democrat and donated to Obama before the California primary in 2008."

Message 27970257

I'm not interested in one more reason not to like Sarah Palin. Or Hillary Clinton.

They call that a "useful tool" for the police. If you look scruffy or otherwise undesirable, you get the ordinance enforced against you...

A town around here passed a similar ordinance. Only one vote against, her quote was "I'm having a hard time with criminalizing poverty".

GOP Congressional Candidate Says 'Holocaust Never Happened'
Art Jones, who hopes to challenge Democrat Dan Lipinski in Illinois' 3rd Congressional District, neither denies nor repudiates his past affiliation with the neo-Nazi Party.

A congressional candidate running as a Republican in the upcoming Illinois primary says the “Holocaust never happened.”

Arthur Jones, 64, a Lyons, IL, insurance salesman who organizes family-friendly, neo-Nazi events around Adolf Hitler’s birthday, hopes to be the Republican candidate chosen to run againstDemocratic Congressman Dan Lipinski in Illinois’ 3rd Congressional District.

“As far as I’m concerned, the Holocaust is nothing more than an international extortion racket by the Jews,” Jones said. “It’s the blackest lie in history. Millions of dollars are being made by Jews telling this tale of woe and misfortune in books, movies, plays and TV.

"The more survivors, the more lies that are told."

A member of the Nationalist Socialist Party in his younger days, Jones took part in the Nazis’ march on Chicago’s Marquette Park in 1978. While he doesn’t deny nor repudiate his “past affiliations,” he says he votes Republican “90 percent of the time.”

“Philosophically, I’m a National Socialist,” Jones said. “Officially, I don’t belong to any party except my own, the America First Committee.”

Jones hopes three’s a charm after blowing his retirement savings on two prior congressional runs. He hopes to win the Republican primary and go on to challenge Lipinski this November. The 3rd District covers portions of Chicago's South Side and a large swath of the south suburbs.

Part of the reason he’s jumping in again is what he describes as Lipinski’s strange affiliation with the American Israel Pro Israel Affairs Committee.

“(The committee) was bragging on their website how (Lipinski) is ‘spearheading’ the effort in the House of Representatives with a Jewish congressman from Virginia named Frank Wolf,” Jones said. “The two are spearheading an effort in the House to get tough with Iran, including closing off any oil exports to China that could lead to World War III.”

While Jones said Wolf was Jewish, he is Presbyterian.

Jones compares today's conditions in the United States to Germany following the end of World War I.

“Our country is falling apart economically, politically, culturally, militarily,” he said. “We are going down.”

A veteran of the Vietnam War with all of its modern horrors, he sees the same betrayal in the “so-called War on Terrorism.”

“These war-mongering fools in congress like Rick Santorum and Newt Gingrich and Mitt Romney—we can’t let Iran have one nuclear weapon but we let Israel have all the nuclear weapons they want,” Jones said. “This is ridiculous.”

Jones is on the ballot against Jim Falvey and Richard Grabowski in a district that has sent a conservative Democrat to Congress for decades. The district includes sizable ethnic populations, primarily the descendants of Irish, German, Polish and Czech immigrants.

In his Patch candidate questionnaire, Jones submitted that he's not been convicted of a felony but has been arrested for "minor street skirmishes with Leftists."

If he runs he is sure to win. So getting rid of a Republican in Nelson and getting a Kerrey should be really good for the Dems. I think if the economy keeps improving (today's revision is good news and proves the hollowness of mindmeld's argument that numbers are being manipulated upwards), then the Dems very likely will win the House and may even hold onto the Senate.
