Pelosi: Things were going great for us until these outside groups started spending money

October 25, 2010


Uh huh. You can fact-check her on this yourself: Go here and scroll alllllll the way down to see how long ago it was that the generic ballot started to tilt towards Republicans. Even lefty pollsters like PPP were showing a lead for the GOP as far back as August 2009. If you want to […]

Ready your shovels!

October 21, 2010


The NY Times has an epic piece titled “The Education of President Obama” which kicks off on page one with some real show-stoppers.
