It’s come to this: Members of the Obama administration are running against their own policies.
While campaigning for Democrat Bruce Braley in Iowa, Vice President Joe Biden claimed the Middle Class has been left behind. True.

Scott Brown was making his closing remarks at a debate on Sunday when Democrat Jeanne Shaheen was forced to interrupt him because KOCH BROTHERS!!!!1111!!!!
The crowd wasn’t buying it and called out Sheheen for her rudeness.

‘RUDE!’: Shaheen Jeered At Debate After Interrupting Scott Brown
Democratic New Hampshire Sen. Jeanne Shaheen was jeered with cries of “Rude!” Sunday after she interrupted her Republican opponent Scott Brown’s closing debate remarks to make a statement about the Koch Brothers.
After Brown asserted that he was endorsed by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, Shaheen butted in to call the Chamber a “Koch-funded organization.” Members in the crowd yelled “rude” at her. Brown received a round of applause moments later for criticizing Shaheen’s lack of decorum.
Here’s the video:
I really hope Scott Brown pulls this off next week.
Not only would he be a great fit for New Hampshire, it might actually convince Democrats to stop attacking two private individuals who have contributed more to America than their entire party.
Last Friday, Hillary Clinton really stepped in it.
She opened her mouth and said businesses and corporations don’t create jobs. She didn’t falter or stutter and no one in the audience skipped a beat because she was speaking to an adoring crowd of leftist Martha Coakley supporters in Boston.
Here’s the video:
Sounds pretty stupid, doesn’t it? Not to worry though, the liberal media came charging over the hill today to explain what Hillary Clinton really meant when she said that.
BuzzFeed claims Hillary “Fumbled” that jobs line…
Hillary Clinton Corrects Fumbled “Jobs” Line
When Hillary Clinton fumbled a line at a rally last Friday — “Don’t let anybody tell you that corporations and businesses create jobs” — the comment caused a minor outrage among political observers. Republicans said she’d been pandering to liberals. Democrats wondered if she’d been trying too hard to channel Elizabeth Warren, the populist senator who also spoke at the event.
On Monday, Clinton went out of her way to correct the comment at a rally for Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney, the Democrat up for reelection in this Hudson Valley district.
Clinton said in her speech that corporations that outsource jobs or move profits overseas should not be granted tax breaks. The clarification made clear that the remark was a botched line — not new messaging from Clinton, who has honed a new stump speech during a series of rallies ahead the election next month.
Politico gave Hillary a chance to “clarify” the jobs line…
Hillary Clinton clarifies jobs comment
Hillary Clinton on Monday mopped up her botched statement from a rally in Massachusetts last week, making it clear she’d misspoken and hadn’t intended to deliver a fresh economic policy message.
Clinton’s cleanup came as she campaigned with Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney in Somers, about 90 minutes north of New York City, after two days in which Republicans bandied the likely White House candidate’s Friday comment, made in the context of talking about trickle-down economics, on social media and the single sentence began gaining traction.
A Clinton aide later said the former secretary of state had meant to talk about tax breaks for corporations and businesses in that sentence, which led into a line about how trickle-down economics had “failed spectacularly” — a sentiment she has long held. The overall context was clear that she had left words out of a sentence; the comment made little sense without it.
Uh huh. Sure.
It almost looks like the liberal media is doing damage control for Hillary.
New England’s liberal rag of note hasn’t endorsed a Republican for governor for 20 years.
I’m not taking anything for granted before next Tuesday but this is amazing to see…
Charlie Baker for governor
This year’s race for governor unfolds beneath mostly sunny skies. In the last eight years, Massachusetts withstood a brutal recession far better than most states did. It came through a terrorist bombing more unified than it had been. Greater Boston’s innovation economy is thriving, and a construction boom is reshaping the skyline. In the major-party candidates — Republican Charlie Baker and Democrat Martha Coakley — voters are lucky to have two experienced, trustworthy public servants who can capably govern a state whose schools and hospitals are the envy of the nation. Three independent candidates offer voters a breadth of additional choices, and their presence on the ballot testifies to the vitality of the political culture in Massachusetts.
Not all is entirely well in the Commonwealth, though. In cities and towns far removed from the shiny new towers of Cambridge’s Kendall Square or Boston’s Seaport District, the economic picture looks much dimmer. Meanwhile, cracks are showing in the edifice of state government itself. The Department of Children and Families, the Probation Department, the state crime lab, the board that regulates compounding pharmacies, the state Labor Department’s unemployment system, the Health Connector website — voters have come to know all these terms as shorthand for the kind of bureaucratic failures that make them doubt state government’s ability to help Massachusetts move forward.
If Baker wins this election, Martha Coakley’s future in politics is finished.
Walker has been a great governor for Wisconsin but he made the mistake of proving that public employee unions are an arm of the Democratic Party so he’s public enemy #1 to many on the left.
He managed to get re-elected with more votes in a recall election, so you know he’s doing something right.
George F. Will: The nastiest political tactic this year
The early-morning paramilitary-style raids on citizens’ homes were conducted by law enforcement officers, sometimes wearing bulletproof vests and lugging battering rams, pounding on doors and issuing threats. Spouses were separated as the police seized computers, including those of children still in pajamas. Clothes drawers, including the children’s, were ransacked, cellphones were confiscated and the citizens were told that it would be a crime to tell anyone of the raids.
Some raids were precursors of, others were parts of, the nastiest episode of this unlovely political season, an episode that has occurred in an unlikely place. This attempted criminalization of politics to silence people occupying just one portion of the political spectrum has happened in Wisconsin, which often has conducted robust political arguments with Midwestern civility.
If this had happened under Bush, the left might have called it fascism.
And by might, I mean would.

Don’t expect the liberal media cavalry to come charging over the hill about this. Insults made by liberals about conservative women don’t count.
Only Republicans can be found guilty in the supposed War on Women and if NC Senator Vincent Shaheen was a Republican, not only would the media force him to publicly apologize, his words would be indisputable proof that all Republicans are sexist pigs.
Nikki Haley’s Dem Opponent: ‘Escort Whore Out the Door!’
While giving a get-out-the-vote speech at a Florence, South Carolina political event, Democrat gubernatorial candidate, State Senator Vincent Shaheen, told cheering fans of his opponent, sitting Republican governor Nikki Haley, “We are going to escort whore out the door.” He then seemed to correct himself by exchanging the word “whore” with “her” while sharing knowing smiles and laughs with the Democrat crowd.
Shaheen lost to Haley in 2010. In their current rematch, the Real Clear Politics poll of polls has Haley ahead by more than 15 points.
