    Last year, UK taxpayers spent $57.8 million taking care of the Royal Family.

    Over the same period, American taxpayers spent $1.4 billion on the Obama family – including the $102,000 salary (not including lodging and benefits) paid for Bo’s dog handler.

    Michelle Obama spent 42 days on vacation in one year (not including weekends).

    Got rope?

    Hard to say about Ohio, all bets are off. It is like here in MI, who really knows? In 2008, in MI, there were Obama signs every where, beginning that summer. There are very few today. I go to Detroit daily and have not seen too many there either. My relatives live in Ohio, my cousin’s in law’s as well as her husband’s entire extended family are democrat. They are not voting, none of them. I guess it will be which group makes it out to the polls. I would assume anyone who does not want Obama will be out to vote.

    Y RLY. The Brits got a better deal.

    I think the charge that the pollsters are being optimistic about Democrat turnout is correct, but this is what we hold the elections to find out.

    http://evilbloggerlady.blogspot.com/2012/09/elizabeth-warrens-supporters-are.html This is big news. Elizabeth Warren has a serious problem, even if the MSM is ignoring it.

    Elizabeth Warren’s campaign site is still silent on this. Why did she give up her bar license in New Jersey on September 11, 2012? This not merely going inactive, she withdrew so if she wants it back she has to reapply again. Why would she do that?

    Elizabeth Warren’s supporters are now acknowledging she has some serious issues facing her with the legal work she did without being a member of the Masschusetts bar. Beyond the hypocrisy of Warren helping insurance companies getting cases dismissed for injured union workers with asbestos claims.

    You really need to add Legal Insurrection’s stuff to the blog list. He is on fire.

    Yeah, but the Dog Handler also doubles as a White House chef.

    Let’s hope all his research yields positive results for Brown. She’s another pathological liar like O and Gore.

    Yikes! I would hope the person is doing something other than “dog handler” for a hundred grand a year. Otherwise a bunch of us are in the wrong business.

    “Is Ohio’s improving job situation undercutting Romney’s message on the economy?”

    I don’t see how. It’s the leadership of Republican Governor John Kasich that is the cause of Ohio’s improving job situation, not the leading-from-behind of our current pResident.

    Let Obama look to export more American jobs; Romney should be looking to export Kasich’s success to the rest of the country.

    I routinely link Legal Insurrection, but last night was an off night.
