Why are only Democrats (it seems) opposed to the Voter ID requirement? It is because they know Republicans are not corrupting American democracy with fictitious voters AND because only by cheating can Democrats hope to win the next election? It is hilarious to see African-Americans interviewed who agree that requiring an ID is not unduly harsh and indeed a good measure to stem voter fraud. Diehard Dems know the secret sauce of victory - turn the dead out to vote!
Bennett - the Bigot-In-Chief plays nice for his Media Matters masters. Only an imbecile would suggest that voting is not as important a civic duty as buying a beer. The latter requires a photo ID and so should voting. Unless of course you are an ACORN stooge like Mr. Bennett and play for the ill-gotten wealth of race hustlers, anti-Semites, union cronies and garden variety Democrats. clay, you're a talented graphic artist but one godawful social commentator.
Don't worry Toto! The GOP won't let Obama eat you! As for supply side economics, it worked far better than anything our leftist president has attempted. Obama has admitted that his tax policy is not intended to expand the economy but to redistribute wealth. That is unproductive and un-American. Come January 2013, the tinman will be oiled up and ready to chop down the thicket of EPA regulations and malaise that is holding investment back. Maybe then the TFP will swap out their hack cartoonist for someone with basic common sense and decency.
The artist is both a bigot and a flack. TFP should be ashamed to employ such a cretin which is one reason I'm not a subscriber.

This is a poll-tested way to divert attention from Obama's abysmal handling of the economy and foreign policy. I so hope it backfires on his re-election plans. To hell if he is a Marxist/Moslem/Atheist or Nation of Islam disciple - Obama is utterly un-American (according to my definition.)
Allow me to differ with alprova who says that we on the right are lying about Obama. Were Jeremiah Wright's words G D_ America" just in jest? I think not and this view resonates with our 44th president.
Newt has had issues with marital infidelity, but so too did Bill Clinton, JFK, FDR and others. It is an issue to consider, but there is not much balance from the media. Remember how ABC, NBC, CBS, CNN and PBS somehow couldn't be bothered to report on John Edwards' love-child until well after the National Enquirer broke the story? Perry's college transcripts were on the 'Net the day after his announced run. Meanwhile, we have never learned Obama's SAT scores, GPA or much of anything else. The guy is a mystery - except to all-knowing and all-trusting Democrats.
I like Newt's boisterous spirit and recall him advocating for laptops for every school student. Maybe not a practical idea, but he is at least open to thinking outside the box. A big thinker with a PhD - one would expect him to be a little arrogant. It's easy to criticize him - as many conservatives do. But I don't see him backing away from big challenges - unlike Obama who disregards his deficit commission and won't dare tackle entitlements.
If Newt wins South Carolina and the GOP nomination, Obama will likely refuse to debate him. Newt will drive the loony left to fits of rage. They'd rather suffer through with Romney than live under a true conservative - like Newt Gingrich.
Once again the in-house satirist pokes fun in only one direction. Newt isn't auditioning to be a son-in-law. Newt has the vision and experience to lead this nation forward - not backward as our current White House occupant is doing. Had to laugh today when Obama spoke about returning to American values. He doesn't know anything about traditional American values. If you disagree, then you probably think Rev. Jeremiah Wright is a mainline Protestant minister and Bill Ayers is a Sunday school teacher.
You mean to equate the GOP with John Edwards and Bill Clinton?
It is often said that Richard Nixon would have won the presidency in 1960 if the Chicago Daley Democratic machine hadn't raised folks from the dead to vote. Given Obama's very close ties to ACORN and all the voter registration scams they've been involved in - I can understand why the GOP and Americans generally want to be sure that only qualified voters vote. One needs a photo ID to fly, why not to vote? Funny that Democrats aren't worried about voter fraud. Maybe that's their planned route to victory in 2012. I wouldn't put it past the likes of Blagoevich, Holder, Rahm Emanuel, Trumpka and their ilk.
Dr. Desjarlais should be congratulated for paring his budget and being a responsible legislator. I recall that labor unions outspent corporations in political donations in the last election. It doesn't appear that the Public Citizen includes union donations in their report. Lamar Alexander said long ago "Cut their pay and send them home." Rep. Desjarlais is operating a tight ship and being quite responsible with taypayer dollars. If only the rest of the Federal Government could follow his example - we might work our way out of the 15 trillion dollar hole that past politicians have saddled us with.
