Election officials catch dead man (SEE PHOTO) donating $100,000 to Sen. Mitch McConnell

1

Via: Raw Story

Officials with a Kentucky super PAC supporting Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) blame a computer error for a $100,000 contribution that appeared more than a month after the donor died. Meanwhile, the Libertarian Party filed a federal lawsuit to lift limits on posthumous donations.

“This is pure free speech,” an attorney for the Libertarian party, Alan Gura told USA Today. “A dead person can’t corrupt someone.”

“And damn right, he should be able to vote Republican/Libertarian/Teabagger!”, he didn’t add.

Krugman – The Hobbled Recovery

Via: NYT

New GDP report out today; slightly stronger than expected, but still very weak. So what’s holding back recovery?

You know what the usual suspects are saying: big government! Bad Obama! Insulting businessmen!

Here’s a chart (See Above). It shows changes since the second quarter of 2009, which was both the bottom of the recession and the earliest point at which you can plausibly say that Obama had any influence on actual policy. I show nonresidential fixed investment — basically business investment — and government purchases of goods and services:

Business investment has actually gone up a lot; maybe you think it should have gone up even more, but it’s not the heart of the problem.

On the other hand, we’ve had a lot of cutbacks in government — mainly at the state and local level, but federal aid could have avoided that.

This isn’t a picture of an economy hobbled by Big Government; it’s a picture of an economy hobbled by premature austerity.

With Gas Prices Expected To Drop Below $3, Republicans Suddenly Silent On Obama’s Role

Via: Huffington Post

Experts predict average gas prices may fall below $3 this fall after dropping 14 cents in two weeks.

When prices hit a record high, Republicans attributed sole responsibility to President Obama, even though there is no evidence that factors like drilling impact what consumers pay.

Just two months ago, Republicans said Obama shouldered the blame for rising gas costs, and that only he had the “key” to lower gas prices:

Mitt Romney, March 18, 2012: “He gets full credit or blame for what’s happened in this economy, and what’s happened to gasoline prices under his watch, and what’s happened to our schools, and what’s happened to our military forces. All these things are his responsibility while he’s president.”

House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH), April 6, 2012: “The president holds the key to addressing the pain Ohioans are feeling at the gas pump and moving our nation away from its reliance on foreign energy. My question for the president is: what are you waiting for?

Boehner, April 6, 2012: “The president’s own policies to date have made matters worse and driven up gas prices.”

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY), Feb. 28 2012: “This President will go to any length to drive up gas prices and pave the way for his ideological agenda.”

Sen. John Barrasso (R-WY), March 13, 2012: Obama is “fully responsible for what the American public is paying for gasoline.”

~~~

Q: Are Republicans now reversing their rhetoric and giving Obama credit for falling gas prices?

A: Oh, hell NO!

personal thought:

I think the President had very little control when the prices rise; nor is he responsible for the drop.

With that said, I do like the timing.

(I-64, I-71, I-75) Kentucky Bridges – “Just Say NO!”

Via: Washington Post

Outdated and overcrowded, the Brent Spence Bridge linking Ohio and Kentucky carries hundreds of thousands of vehicles a day and billions in goods a year — 4 percent of the nation’s gross domestic product, by some estimates.

On Thursday night, it also became part of President Barack Obama’s pitch for his plan to create jobs, an example of a lagging infrastructure fix plucked from the states of Republican leadership in Congress.

“There are private construction companies all across America just waiting to get to work,” Obama said in his address to Congress urging support for his jobs plan. “There’s a bridge that needs repair between Ohio and Kentucky that’s on one of the busiest trucking routes in North America.”

~

The bridge carries traffic from Interstates 75 and 71, along with substantial amounts of freight, over the river. Overhaul is expected to cost well over $2 billion and take years, but despite years of planning, the project still lacks all the funding needed from the federal government and the two states.

http://www.washingtonpost.com/national/crumbling-ohio-river-bridge-jumps-to-prominence-with-mention-in-obamas-jobs-speech/2011/09/09/gIQAkJPZFK_story.html

***

Yesterday, ThinkProgress published a report detailing Republican Congressional leadership’s opposition to infrastructure investments even as structural deficiencies in bridges and roadways persist in their home states. Among those is Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, where 34 percent of bridges are considered structurally deficient or functionally obsolete.

The Sherman Minton Bridge, one of three major bridges spanning the Ohio River between Louisville, KY and southern Indiana, was among the Kentucky bridges listed as deficient.

And last night, the Sherman Minton Bridge was closed after further deficiencies, including cracks, were found in a load-bearing part of its structure. The Louisville Courier-Journal reports:

The Sherman Minton Bridge was closed late Friday afternoon and will remain shut down indefinitely after officials discovered cracks in the span.

How Bad Does It Have to Get Before D.C. Gets Bipartisan?

Via: Atlantic

Friday’s dismal jobs report and the worst stock market dip since 2008 raises the question: Just how bad does the economic climate need to get to trigger some policy consensus in Washington on how to make it better?

The widening gap between the two parties’ economic visions and the deep divisions in their politics offer little insight or encouragement that Washington will finally pivot to jobs and economic growth in September when Congress returns.

And if there is one precedent that this Congress has established, it’s that the Republican House and the Democratic Senate come together to act only under white-hot pressure such as the threat of default or a government shutdown.  At this rate, the answer may be: much, much worse.

personal thought:

I hate to say this, but we are now so polarized, we’ll NEVER see a ‘bipartisan’ Congress.
