Rep. Tim Scott, a South Carolina Republican backed by tea-party groups, made history Monday when he was appointed to fill the seat of departing Sen. Jim DeMint.
Mr. Scott, who will be the first black senator from the South since Reconstruction, instantly became the GOP’s highest-profile African-American, as the party isn’t represented by any other black members of Congress or any black governors.
South Carolina Republican Gov. Nikki Haley said she chose Mr. Scott because he was a successful small-business man and fiscal conservative with the same philosophy as Mr. DeMint.
Ms. Haley said it was important to her as an Indian-American to say that she chose Mr. Scott for his merits, adding that he “earned this seat for the person that he is.”
Mr. Scott said he would seek to uphold Mr. DeMint’s record, and shares his hard-line approach on negotiations on the fiscal cliff, looming year-end spending cuts and tax increases. Mr. Scott said raising taxes on the nation’s wealthiest people would damage business owners and cause jobs to be lost.
A list of layoffs since the election and we’ve had about 100,000 layoffs publicized since November 7th, 125 businesses, including some large chain stores, have announced they are closing and there have also been a number of bankruptcies announced.
You can thank the stupid American voter who either voted for Obama, or didn’t turn out to vote for Mitt Romney in the recent election for the recent layoffs. Obama has made it quite clear that he want’s to destroy the economy, as have far left Marxist Democrat!!
Since this list was made more lay offs have occurred and more Businesses have shut their doors
Layoffs Announced Since Election
The Republican Party made an agreement 30 years ago with the Democrat Party regarding voting integrity. That agreement is not to pursue potential voter fraud. If you are not rip roaring mad and ready to sling every RINO out of the party by now, read this and you will be!
In 1982, the Republican National Committee (“RNC”) and the Democratic National Committee (“DNC”) entered into a consent decree (the “Decree”), which is national in scope, limits the RNC’s ability to engage or assist in voter fraud prevention unless the RNC obtains the prior court’s approval. Full decree in PDF RNC DNC Voter CoIntegrity Agreement.
Has the Republican Party committed suicide? Is USA two-party system in it’s death throws? Every state better step up and utilize the assets afforded in the 10th Amendment, before we lose that too. Our constitution is being burned and replaced by over 1500 Obama administration executive orders.

Race for Florida’s 18th Congressional District Remains Undecided Stuart, FL – Today West for Congress released the following statement regarding the state of the race in Florida’s 18th Congressional District:
“With all provisional and absentee votes counted in the 18th District, Congressman West currently trails by roughly 2,400 votes, a margin outside of the threshold for an automatic recount. The race remains undecided because there are issues that still need to be resolved in St. Lucie County. Late on Election Night, Congressman West led by 1,700 votes. Following the St. Lucie County Supervisor of Elections’ decision to recount thousands of early ballots after a technical glitch, the margin shifted by 4,000. In order to ensure that votes were not doubled counted, we have requested that the St. Lucie Supervisor of Elections make public the poll check-in books to ensure the numbers of ballots cast matches the numbers of voters checked-in at the polls. Once that information is provided we believe the outcome of the election will be clear. It is troubling that days later that information is still not available. Our sole focus is ensuring all ballots were counted fairly and accurately.”

Pure Intimidation, these people should be forced 100 to 300 feet from the polling area…
Tomorrow’s Washington Times, according to the Washington Free Beacon, will include a full page ad of 500 admirals and generals who support Mitt. Says the Free Beacon:
Nearly 500 former military admirals and generals are poised to endorse Mitt Romney…
The group will post a full page ad in the Washington Times on Monday. The advertisement will have the headline, “We, the undersigned, proudly support Governor Mitt Romney as our nation’s next President and Commander-in-Chief,” followed by the names of the former military commanders.
A spokesman for the group emphasized its independence from the official campaign. The Romney campaign has not sanctioned this ad buy, a spokesman said, and the members of the group are paying the fee themselves.
Unemployment for the youth is extremely high, and it will only get higher if obama is allowed to serve another 4 years as our president…Young people , white, black and Hispanic, you may think obama is cool, but you can’t buy your cars and gas and stylish clothes with coolness, it takes a job, think twice before you pull that lever on November 6. Romney may be a square to you but he will create policy that will allow businesses to create jobs for you and that is what being a President is all about.
Pollster John Zogby told Secrets this week that support among younger voters aged 18-29 is down for President Obama and the new October unemployment rates announced Friday morning may explain why.
According to the government, the overall youth unemployment rate is 12 percent. But for younger black voters, a critical Obama support block, the rate is a staggering 21.4 percent. And for Hispanic youth voters it is 13.4 percent.
According to the youth-focused group Generation Opportunity, which pulled the youth figures out of the overall labor numbers, the picture might be worse.
“The declining labor force participation rate has created an additional 1.7 million young adults that are not counted as ‘unemployed’ by the U.S. Department of Labor because they are not in the labor force, meaning that those young people have given up looking for work due to the lack of jobs,” they said.
Generation Opportunity President Paul T. Conway, said “For the president, the failure to address young adult unemployment and to understand the negative impact on their hopes will, in retrospect, be seen as the reason why he lost support among millions of who once believed in his ability to affect lasting change.”
Buzzfeed reporter McKay Coppins was heard saying on Hot Mic before an Romney rally there is “a 40% chance that he says something stupid.”
Do you realize what Romney’s been up against throughout this entire campaign, childish and unprofessional media partisans disguised as “objective” reporters are Not just from the likes of BuzzFeed, and they’re bad enough, but also from a media atmosphere so stacked against Romney and in favor of Obama that anyone pretending to be an “objective” journalist can feel comfortable popping off like this.
It’s also a look at how comfortable these elitist jerks are behaving this way amongst themselves when they think no one is listening. I have no issues with reporters joking around, but it’s no coincidence that you never ever hear this kind of thing coming from the “objective” media about President Obama.

The Massachusetts-based battery maker A123 Systems received a $249 million grant in December 2009 through President Obama’s stimulus program, of which the company received about $129 million before it went bankrupt this month. Like all other recipients of stimulus loans or grants, A123 Systems was required to report job creation statistics to Recovery.gov.
The latest quarterly report on file with a federal stimulus tracking database shows just seven positions created through the grant from April to June this year. Previous quarters’ job reports contained anywhere from a handful of positions created to more than 100 new jobs.
I guess you never get to old for stupidity, and some people never grow up, some never become educated, some never learn from mistakes made over and over….Micheal Moore is one of them and some of the residents he uses at a Nursing Home fill the bill pretty well too.
Although I really don’t believe they are in a nursing home, I believe they are paid obamabots, paid by moveone.org, Michael Moore and George Soros
Liberal film producer Michael Moore is out with a new “NSFW” (not safe for work) Moveon.org campaign ad featuring elderly nursing home residents cursing and describing the dirty things they will do if the Republican Party and GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney win the election.
“I was born in 1915 during World War I. My first vote was in 1940 for Franklin D. Roosevelt and I have not missed an election since,” says 97-year-old Marie, in the video. “And I want the Republican Party to know, if your voter suppression throughout this beautiful country enables Romney to oust Barack Obama we will burn this motherfucker down. ” (does she mean the nursing home)
