    Waaaaaaaaaaay over your head ... again. With Obama in the White House, a do-nothing Congress is the best possible thing for the country.

    Last thing this president can afford is a fact-check.

    Wow. You went back and edited and that's still the best you can do?

    Not over my head at all. You want the government to fail because you don't like the guy in the White House, thus proving you are a party fanboy rather than somebody who actually cares about the United States.

    The current Congress is a complete failure and it is the guys on your side of the aisle ensuring that it happens. Only a delusional fanboy like you would think that is a good thing. Then again, you think the Packers' defense was successful Sunday, so we know your ideas are kinda warped.

    The usual toolboy effusions from that collection of repressed, self-loathing cases . . .

    Was unaware this was even happening until last night:

    A read around the nations major newspaper editorials makes it seem pretty
    universal that Obama's speech last night was not well received. They can't
    all be self loathing. Many even endorsed Obama.

    Dems have apparently nominated a far left candidate for Mayor. (He's hovering just over the 40% threshold necessary to avoid a runoff.)

    Is it possible the Republican nominee, Joe Lhota, could win as a result?

    No. It will be Mayor Bill.

    Getting harder and harder for some of these outlets to continue reporting on the beauty of the Emperor's new clothes.

    Ron Fournier gives a well balanced take on the situation, and sadly for Obama, a well balanced take is devastating: http://bit.ly/17OWEE7

    Well, that was good for a morning laugh.

    I think you're probably right, but it was supposed to be Mayor Quinn.

    de Blasio's nomination gives Lhota his best chance. A lot of Dems will cross over.

    Now, a lot of news reports have talked about shifting demographics since Giuliani first won. The white, working class voters in the outer boroughs have moved out of the City (and/or been overshadowed by an influx of new voters).

    I'd have to learn more about this to make an informed prediction. If the Giuliani electorate just isn't there any more, then Lhota's task is a lot harder.

    But, the business elite will get behind him, and that should give him the money necessary to compete. (Ironically, Joe's wife fashions herself a political fundraiser, and fundraising has been one of his big problems.)
