The far-left loons over at MoveOn.org have called for a boycott of Target retail stores because Target has dared to exercise its newly achieved right to participate in the electoral process by spending “over $150,000 in the Minnesota Governor’s race backing state Rep. Tom Emmer, a far-right Republican who supports Arizona’s draconian immigration law (and) wants to abolish the minimum wage.
Which means only one thing: I’m shopping at Target this week!
Rep. Michele Bachmann writes that “The first hurdle on the path to a legal-process repeal of Obamacare was cleared Monday. A federal judge allowed the Commonwealth of Virginia to proceed with a challenge to the government’s requirement that individuals must buy health insurance. This decision directly bypassed a dismissal request by President Obama’s Justice Department.” Small victory…but definitely a good start.
Meanwhile, Chris Jacobs of the Republican Policy Committee notes that “Missouri voters overwhelmingly approved a ballot measure (on Tuesday) designed to block the introduction of an individual mandate to purchase health insurance. Upwards of 70 percent of voters approved the measure, which passed by a margin of more than 2 to 1.” And Democrats still think they can ride ObamaCare to victory in November?
Our friend, former congressman and anti-ILLEGAL immigration champion Tom Tancredo has really upset the apple cart in Colorado’s gubernatorial race by entering it as a third-party (Constitution) candidate. Rasmussen Reports reports today that 43% of “Likely Voters” are going with Democrat John Hickenlooper, with GOP contender Scott McInnis picking up 25% and Tancredo getting 24%.
FAMOUS LAST WORDS
“Democrats act as if the right to run across the border when you’re 8 1/2 months pregnant, give birth in a U.S. hospital and then immediately start collecting welfare was exactly what our forebears had in mind, a sacred constitutional right, as old as the 14th Amendment itself.” – columnist Ann Coulter
“President Obama’s job approval numbers fell to a new low Tuesday as the White House struggles to convince voters it is leading the economy out of recession.” – The Hill, 8/4/10
“(T)he concern on the part of tea partiers that the government is not responsive to the interests and values of the majority is a valid one. Whether the bank and auto industry bailouts, the huge economic stimulus package and the health care bill are good policies or bad — and will help the economy or hurt it — they are not favored by the majority of Americans. And the things that people most care about — the creation of new jobs and vigorous economic growth — are lacking. Even more important are the ways the bills were fashioned. There is a saying in Washington that one should never see the ways laws and sausages are made. Well, many people are choking on them. . . .” – liberal scholar Amitai Etzioni (Hat tip: Political Diary)
“Nearly every bill passed by the Congress in the last four years has had a pro-union component. Everything the Democrats do is a favor to the unions.” – Mark Mix of the National Right to Work Committee (Hat tip: Political Diary)
