NPR: vast majority of Dems have high confidence in the FBI

October 5, 2018

Or, at least they did before yesterday.
============

Yesterday, we reported an NPR survey indicating that the Dem’s enthusiasm advantage has evaporated.

Buried in the survey’s “internals”, but not reported in the headlined story, was an interesting question:

“Do you have a great deal of confidence, quite a lot, not very much confidence, or no confidence at all in The FBI?”

For the total sample, 59% said “great deal” or “quite a bit”;  36% said “not very much” or “no confidence”; 5% were “unsure.

Biden: “Some of the 47% pay higher effective rates than Gov. Romney” … say, what?

October 13, 2012

I’ve been re-watching the Biden-Ryan debate and reading the transcript … this time, it’s for comedy value.

Beyond the whoppers, I can’t believe how many fundamentally dumb things Biden said.  Many got obscured by his bluster.

Here’s one of my favorites … suitable for the Yogi Berra quote book:

These people [the 47%]  are my mom and dad, the people I grew up with, my neighbors.

They pay more effective tax than Governor Romney pays in his federal income tax.

I’ve had it up to here with this notion that 47 percent …

Full transcript & video

An obvious non sequitur.

By definition, the folks in the 47% don’t pay any Federal income taxes, so their effective rates are zero

And, zero is less than 14% … or any other positive tax rate.

Geez.

And that dufass is in line to be President.

Biden: “Syria is 5 times larger than Libya” … say, what?

October 12, 2012

During the Vice Presidential debate on Thursday night, Joe Biden claimed, incorrectly, that that Team Obama is turning a blind eye towards Syria because – compared to Libya —  it  “is a different country, it is five times as large geographically, it has one fifth the population”.

Ordinarily, we’d give him a pass (yeah, right), but Biden claims to be Mr. International and was trying to discredit Ryan’s foreign policy knowledge.

Turns out –- according to Google –that Syria is about 1/10th the size of Libya with over 3 times the population.

Oops.
