    How could this be ?The Queen of the Republican party didn't make Forbes 100 most powerful women :eek:

    This is the women the Republicans are depending on to save them ,and she isn't considered one of the worlds most powerful women :confused:

    Numerous democratic women are included ,Michelle Obama,Sibelius,Clinton ,Napalitino,Ginsberg,Sotomayor ,polosi etc,but no Sarah

    I guess maybe its the leftist media although Forbes was founded by a Republican presidential candidate
  2. I still believe in Sarah.Palin 2012 !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  3. Speaking of Forbes:

    Obama Ponzi Scheme: Forbes Calls Obama Administration Worse than Madoff
    'Forbes on FOX' guests asked if Madoff's Ponzi scheme or Obama's spending plan will cause more economic damage.

    According to some “Forbes on Fox” guests, the Obama Administration is more harmful to the economy than Bernie Madoff’s infamous Ponzi scheme.

    On March 12, Madoff pled guilty to 11 felony counts including money laundering, perjury, and mail, wire, and securities fraud. On Mar. 14, Fox host David Asman asked guests of the show “Who’s worse for the market – Bernie Madoff or the folks in D.C.?”

    Steve Forbes, Forbes magazine’s editor-in-chief, blamed the folks in D.C. as the worse culprit. Forbes explained that “in terms of what the current administration is doing, in terms of the cost they’re applying to the economy, uh destroying, hitting businesses, small businesses with new taxes, taxing capital, wasting tens and hundreds of billions of dollars, that’s gonna do more economic harm than Bernie Madoff could ever dream of doing.”

    Guest Mike Ozanian, accused Obama of running a $2 trillion Ponzi scheme through his economic spending strategy. Ozanian, national editor of Forbes, explained, “Madoff’s scam is about $20 billion. Barack Obama’s Ponzi scheme is $2 trillion. And if you look at how they work the schemes, they’re very similar. Both falsify their returns, Obama has overinflated what the GDP is gonna be, the economy, how much it’s gonna grow. Even the Congressional Budget Office has said Obama’s numbers are way inflated. And to pay for that, he’s gotta bring in a lot of other scamsters through, Obama does, which in this case really are taxpayers.”

    As an example of government swindle, Asman cited the annual $50 billion of fraud and waste in Medicare – the same dollar amount Madoff scammed from investors. “One government program wastes as much as Bernie Madoff,” he pointed out.

    But Forbes market report Evelyn Rusli and national editor Quentin Hardy disagreed with those claims. Hardy called the comparison between government actions and Madoff “silly and wrong and more cynicism than anything I can imagine.”

    Asman asked Hardy to answer in the context of whether the government or Madoff “does more damage to the market.” Hardy fumbled for words and changed the subject, commenting “ya know, uh, the great thing Obama’s doing is talking about personal responsibility.” Hardy’s claim made Ozanian bowl over in a fit of laughter, and Forbes chuckle and made a face. “Go ahead and laugh. Let me finish,” Hardy replied, and then made his point that government is merely cleaning up a mess caused by individuals ripping off the market.
    Ozanian said he laughed because “Obama’s Ponzi scheme is doing the same thing that Madoff’s did. He’s taking money from people not even in the system, taxpayers not even in the system, and he’s going to scourge them for money down the road.”

    Charlie Cook: Dem situation has 'slipped completely out of control'

    Charlie Cook, one of the best political handicappers in the business, sent out a special update to Cook Political Report subscribers Thursday that should send shivers down Democratic spines.

    Reviewing recent polling and the 2010 election landscape, Cook can envision a scenario in which Democratic House losses could exceed 20 seats.

    "These data confirm anecdotal evidence, and our own view, that the situation this summer has slipped completely out of control for President Obama and Congressional Democrats. Today, The Cook Political Report’s Congressional election model, based on individual races, is pointing toward a net Democratic loss of between six and 12 seats, but our sense, factoring in macro-political dynamics is that this is far too low," he wrote.

    "Many veteran Congressional election watchers, including Democratic ones, report an eerie sense of déjà vu, with a consensus forming that the chances of Democratic losses going higher than 20 seats is just as good as the chances of Democratic losses going lower than 20 seats."

    Cook scrupulously avoided any mention that Democratic control of the House is in jeopardy but, noting a new Gallup poll showing Congress’ job disapproval at 70 percent among independents, concluded that the post-recess environment could feel considerably different than when Congress left in August.

    "We believe it would be a mistake to underestimate the impact that this mood will have on Members of Congress of both parties when they return to Washington in September, if it persists through the end of the Congressional recess."
  9. The current odds for a Obama re election is 2-1,bet 33 to win 66

    Its quite common for the party opposite of the president to gain seats in congress so nothings unusual about that and it should be expected
  10. I remember when the the Dow was at 14K and the "experts" were telling everyone that 20k was right around the corner.

    Get long baby!
