Dear Readers: A big shout-out and thanks to Legal Insurrection’s Bill Jacobson, who kindly joined good friend Silvio Canto and myself on Canto Talk to discuss the first presidential debate and other news (click HERE to listen). True to his word, Professor Jacobson immediately went to his keyboard and highlight the fact he could not identify that class-warrior-princess Elizabeth Warren, Massachusetts senate candidate, did any pro bono work.
The team over at Legal Insurrection is also covering the ginned-up employment numbers, which are explained by an increase in a number of part-time workers. Progressive are trying to tout that numbers based on people dropping away from the search for employment or seeking multiple part-time positions is a hallmark of a successful economy. HOGWASH! Every single independent-conservative activist has predicted that these numbers would be plumped-up like the pillows of a sultan’s favorite harem maiden.
The employment numbers lie. The poll numbers lie. The only numbers real in the Obama Administration are on his golf scorecards — and even those could be questionable.
Bonus! it seems that the Bureau of Labor and Statistics has Obama donors in all the right places.
At least two economists at the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) have contributed to President Barack Obama’s campaign. Harley Frazis of Bethesda, MD, has contributed at least $2,000 to Obama and $9,000 to the Democratic National Convention over the last three election cycles. During his time at BLS, Harley has published a number of papers including his most recent, “How to Think About Time-Use Data: What Inferences Can We Make About Long- and Short-Run Time Use from Time Diaries?”
There are some other excellent posts that I have come across, which show Americans are onto this game and realize Romney’s debate performance on Wednesday was a “GAME-CHANGER”:

It seems that 70 million Americans were interested enough in the 2012 election to tune into the first debate. There, they witnessed what the campaign would have looked like without the elite media filter. That is why, despite the false numbers. Romney is going to win. Here is evidence that the American people are not buying what Team Obama is selling:
- Joe Trippi (no righty, he) reports that on-line GOP registration in the key swing state of Ohio shot up in the debate aftermath.
- Obama is now tied with Romney in a district he won by 23 points in 2008.
- Romney Crushes Obama Among California Voters in Snap Polls
(Add to the fact California’s gas prices are skyrocketing, and you have the makings of quite the blue state rebellion on your hands.)
BASED ON THE ABOVE DATA: THE GODDESS OF CAPITALISM IS PLEASED TO MAKE THIS PREDICTION:
Shortly after the Vice-Presidential debate in which Ryan trounces Biden, when it is obvious that the elite media meme is not being accepted by the American people and that most voters want a savvy, sexy second-in-command, the press will start to unleash its fury on Team Obama. They will go over the White House like a pack of wolves.
As evidence, some of it has already started:
Never forget, when it comes to America media, only one thing is certain: It hates LOSERS more than REPUBLICANS
UPDATE: From one of our good friends — proof that the press has begun to abandon the sinking ship.
