Doug Wilder on Joe Biden’s ‘Back in Chains’ Remark

Former Virginia Governor Doug Wilder, the nation’s first black governor, was on Cavuto responding to the Vice President’s outrageous statements made in Danville, VA yesterday.  Mr. Wilder is a Democrat, but he comes from a more rational Democrat party, a party who has long ago left the reasonable people behind.

Wilder characterized Biden’s remarks as ‘divisive’ and was truly incensed, nearly shouting “Slavery is nothing to joke about.”

He went on about Biden’s “gaffe after gaffe after gaffe” and urged him to speak to the people as ‘equals’ rather than to demogogue them as if they are unintelligent.

Wilder also went on to say that this election is up for grabs and that either side could win the White House, the Senate and the House of Representatives.

UPDATE UPDATE UPDATE UPDATE UPDATE UPDATE

When asked to comment on the comments of the First African American Governor of Virginia Jay Carney embarrassed himself. I cannot describe it, watch it for yourself! Maybe that is why The former Democrat Governor attended a Mitt Romney Paul Ryan fundraiser in Richmond tonight

Mark Levin Engages the Crowd. The Crowd Engages Mark Levin. Hilarity Ensues.

To be in the audience of this event was a once in a lifetime event.  Mark Levin addressed the crowd at Americans for Prosperity’s “Defending the American Dream Summit” last weekend and Levin was spectacular, to say the least!  I’ve been looking for video of this ever since Saturday and now our fine friends at TheDaleyGator have put it up.

Thank.

You.

I excerpted the most memorable and absolutely hysterical portion here.  But it’s only 4 minutes of a 30 minute speech.  Gator’s got the whole thing

Go there to see that, plus Governor Scott Walker, Michelle Malkin, Senator Ron Johnson and others.

I’ve attended CPAC for many years.  I’ve seen many great speeches, including Andrew Breitbart’s last one at CPAC in February…and that was intensely memorable and deeply personal to me.

But I’ve got to say that this was one of the most memorable speeches ever.

Can you feel the intensity of the crowd?

We’re ready for battle.

Bring.  It.  On.

Voter Participation Center Partners with MoveOn.Org

The non partisan claims of Voter Participation Center continue to be eroded. Yesterday we showed that the entire board of Women’s Voices Women Vote, the associated political wing of VPC is packed with left wing political operatives.

In today’s Richmond Times Dispatch writer Mark Bowes reveals that volunteers from MoveOn.org have been doing follow up calls to recipients of Voter Participation Center’s voter registration forms.

The link between the VPC and MoveOn.org was discovered by Walter and Judy Hoye of Rockville, who were puzzled in June when they received a voter registration form in the mail for their 38-year-old daughter, a registered voter who lives 12 miles away in Henrico County and has never lived at their current address.

The mystery deepened when they received a phone call several weeks after receiving the partially filled-out form from the Voter Participation Center.

The caller, they eventually learned, was a volunteer with MoveOn.org.

Just as a tease, later today we will show the political donations of VPC’s Page Gardner. Let’s just say that you won’t be surprised.

Surprisingly, ‘Civic Groups’ Don’t Want An Investigation into Voter Participation Center

I’m shocked! Shocked!

A letter to Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli and the State Board of Elections is objecting to any investigation into VPC.

“Should the State Board of Elections acquiesce to the Romney campaign’s attempt to intervene in lawful voter registration efforts, it would be in violation of its legal obligation to timely process voter registration applications and would cast a pall of confusion over new voters in Virginia,” says the letter.

The letter is signed by ProgressVA, SEIU Local 512, Virginia Organizing, NARAL Pro-Choice VA, the Virginia Chapter of the Sierra Club, The Martin Luther King Jr. Living History and Public Policy Center, Virginia New Majority, the Voice of Vietnamese Americans, and Tenants and Workers United.

I’ve got to say that the Richmond Times Dispatch is doing an outstanding job of following this story. Kudos to Wesley Hester and Mark Bowes.

Tax cuts for the middle class? Its time to disrupt this false narrative!

When is a tax cut not a tax cut?

Enough is enough. While listening to the news this morning (Fox News, no less) Peter Doocy is discussing which Senators will be supporting the middle class tax cut proposed by the president. Excuse me, did I miss something? The only Obama proposal I heard called for congress to increase tax rates. In some twisted liberal logic, proposing to raise the tax rate on the most productive Americans equals cutting the tax rate on the rest. Let’s be clear, no one and I mean NO ONE is proposing to reduce the current tax rate for anyone! The current proposals are to;

1. Increase the tax rates on all income brackets.

2. Increase the tax rate on individuals making over $200,000 or joint filers earning over $250,000 annually.

3. Extend the current tax rates otherwise known as the status quo or neither a tax cut nor a tax increase.

So to be clear, no one is proposing a “Tax Cut”, the current debate is over whether or not we should increase the current tax rate and if so, should we increase taxes on all taxpayers or just the most productive.

Now that we understand the truth, it is also important to understand how we arrived at a point when tax increases can be portrayed as tax cuts. Back in 2001 when the current tax rates were proposed by President Bush, the Democrats along with John McCain insisted on a compromise. They added a sunset provision which called for the tax rates to revert to the previous levels (a tax increase) after 10 years. In a failed effort to win favor with voters in 2010, Obama and the Democrats agreed to extend the rates for 2 years which brings us to the current debate.

The current tax law is set to expire on January 1, 2013 at which time the rates will revert to the higher rates from 2000. The long-term planning of the Democrat party has enabled them to twist a proposed tax increase into an election year proposal to cut taxes for the middle class, a narrative that is now echoed on network and cable news.

UPDATE: Congressman Ryan schools Obama defender Norah O’Donnell on this very topic.
