"Obama losing the confidence of key parts of the coalition that elected him"

Glenn Reynolds quips about this: "Hi folks. You're kinda late to the party. Try not to be so easily fooled next time."

Marvin Gaye, "Trouble Man"

"There were soul singers and there were SOUL singers. But was any deeper or more enigmatic than Marvin Gaye?"

"Thieves target Lego sets as value soars"

I had a huge, very cool collection of Legos as a kid. It probably would have been worth a small fortune now.

"The Reality Behind the Latest Pro-Obamacare Spin"

I thought maybe the recent reports sounded suspiciously good.

Obamacare’s defenders are busy declaring victory again.  Ezra Klein is touting a new survey of Obamacare benchmark premiums in some regions of the country as evidence that the law is defying the predictions of critics and working to cut costs rather than increase them.

"Stimulus bill enabled billions in waste, exploitation of employees"

"I guess common sense isn’t on the curriculum this year."

"Will Orange Be the New Black for IRS Chief Lois Lerner?"

I'd ask you to state what the country's attention would be focused on if this were occuring under a Republican administration. But that's so easy even a two-year-old could do it.

Perhaps there is some strange computer virus that selectively trashes records inconvenient to incumbents, like the “glitch” that erased part of Nixon’s tapes. How else to explain the fact that this is the fourth announcement of an ever-expanding computer calamity connected to Lois Lerner to emerge from the IRS?
