An Obamacare benefit to the GOP: more Job Creators - 02/27/14

... And, in fact, that's exactly how Ed Morrissey of HotAir reports it [1]. But, there is a big upside: more Job Creators! If the market in that area will sustain two more pet care centers, then someone's going to fill it. It won't be the Job Creator on the video, but it might be a whole new Job Creator (or two). Simply by passing Obamacare, Obama will have helped create new Job Creators, most of...

How the Reason Rupe poll misleads on immigration amnesty (Emily Elkins, Ed Morrissey) - 03/02/13

Ed Morrissey of HotAir will grasp at any straw to support amnesty, and the latest is "Reason-Rupe poll shows majority approves path to citizenship, oppose targeted drone killings of Americans" [1] referring to a poll by Reason Magazine [2]. That poll obtains its result by misleading; here's the question that was asked with the results: Which comes closest to your view about unauthorized...

Conservative bloggers who support amnesty (Rubio; Hot Air, Morrissey, Johnsen, Loesch, Moran, Mataconis...) - 01/21/13

... other names may be added later: * Ed Morrissey of HotAir ( @EdMorrissey; source: peekURL.com/zbUsvKU ): ...[Rubio's amnesty] would have a better chance of passing the Senate than a strict no-amnesty bill would, obviously. Democrats want to push on immigration reform anyway, and Republicans will have to have a reasonable alternative on the table. Rubio is under no illusions that this alone will...

To Ed Morrissey, patriotism has a price tag (Gerard Depardieu, Hot Air, going Galt) - 12/17/12

... peekURL.com/zEf4J2g ). Of this, Ed Morrissey of HotAir says ( peekURL.com/zAnJmZD ): The arguments in this dispute are very revealing. Depardieu’s critics in France are heaving volcanoes of emotion, tossing out accusations of unpatriotism and “pathetic” selfishness. Depardieu, on the other hand, offers the rational argument that (a) he has the resources to choose his tax regime, (b) he has no...

HotAir readers: Ed Morrissey isn't capable of blocking amnesty, but we are - 11/13/12

... immigration and blocking amnesty. Ed Morrissey isn't on our side of that issue. Just a few days ago, Morrissey waved the white flag. Just today, Morrissey offers "Time to cut a deal on immigration" ( peekURL.com/zf8rMQP ) in which he completely, absolutely folds on amnesty. Morrissey has no clue (or pretends to have no clue) about how to block amnesty and reduce illegal immigration, but the same...

Ed Morrissey ready to capitulate on amnesty (Hot Air, immigration) - 11/07/12

Ed Morrissey of HotAir is ready to help the GOP deal itself a losing hand, and is trying to round up others. Morrissey quotes ( peekURL.com/zSYJQs5 ) this from Jeff Poor of the Daily Caller: After Tuesday night's re-election victory for President Barack Obama, MSNBC's Chuck Todd predicted that one of the president's agenda items - one promise he never managed to fulfill in his first term - would...

Two examples of conservative failure (CPAC, rap, Crowder, Reynolds, V. Jackson) - 02/11/12

The first example is from an Ed Morrissey post [1] about a Friday event at CPAC ("Conservative Political Action Conference"): Yesterday, John Hawkins and TeaParty.net staged the first ever CPAC Blogger Awards, which John organized and emceed in part. The awards recognized a number of excellent bloggers, such as Pamela Gellar, Jim Hoft, Emily Zanotti (to whom I presented the award), Glenn...

Wall Street Journal, Ed Morrissey ignore immigration impact on teen unemployment - 07/01/11

... Street Journal posts [1] and Ed Morrissey of HotAir hypes [2] an editorial blaming the minimum wage for very high teen unemployment (see this). While the minimum wage might play a role, a clearer role is played by massive low-skilled immigration. Yet, neither the WSJ nor Morrissey even hint at that. Perhaps it's because the WSJ is a strong supporter of unlimited immigration, and Morrissey isn't...

What Ed Morrissey forgot to tell you about the Japanese tsunami and capitalism - 03/13/11

Ed Morrissey of HotAir uses the recent tragic earthquake and ensuing tsunami in Japan as a launching point to promote his idea of free market capitalism. Except, he forgot to mention free market capitalism's possible role in the current nuclear issues associated with the tragedy (link): Well, the question here is whether wealth allows for adaptation - or whether an economic system’s openness to...

Ed Morrissey, Glenn Reynolds, Newsbusters don't tell whole truth about Bell, California - 09/22/10

... Democrats, and Glenn Reynolds [1], Ed Morrissey of HotAir [2], and Lachlan Markay of Newsbusters [3] take them to task. That's definitely a valid concern. However, at the same time, those three all fail to even acknowledge the role that massive/illegal immigration has played in the problems that Bell and other cities in that area have been having for years. When complaining about the media not...

Ed Morrissey: the Birther's Joe McCarthy (Sharron Angle) - 07/02/10

Ed Morrissey of HotAir recently conducted an interview of Sharron Angle, and even his commenters call him out for engaging in McCarthyism on the Obama citizenship issue. Morrissey says [1]: In the past few days, rumors have swirled that Angle is a crypto-Birther. I asked her “flat out” whether she believed Barack Obama was born somewhere other than Hawaii, and she replied, “No. Is that flat-out...

Democrats skip townhalls to avoid tea party "patriots" - 06/07/10

... the contrary. For instance, the Ed Morrissey HotAir post about this [1] uses the phrase "Milk Carton Democrats", as if that's going to cause them to start holding meetings again. That post has comments like: "This is gonna backfire on the Dems come November" and the even dumber "They can’t avoid the most important “town hall”– election day!" That's not that likely: in almost all districts the...

Carol Shea-Porter "p0wns" her Teaparty constituents, including a doctor - 04/02/10

... the second video is promoted by Ed Morrissey of HotAir; he says nothing about how ineffective the video is (hotair.com/archives/2010/04/02/ video-shea-porter-plays-april-fools-joke-on-town-hall/).

"Demand Question Time": another bipartisan sham (petition, demandquestiontime.com) - 02/03/10

... Norquist, Joe Trippi, Mark McKinnon, Ed Morrissey, Ari Melber, Katrina vanden Heuvel... Eli Pariser... Markos Moulitsas (Kos)... Ari Melber, Ana Marie Cox and Nate Silver. The steering committee is made up of Micah Sifry, David Corn, Mike Moffo, Mindy Finn (note: affiliated with Patrick Ruffini), Jon Henke and Glenn Reynolds. That list is a very, very big clue as to what we're dealing with. If...

Martha Coakley immigration position: ignored status as DA; supports massive immigration - 01/16/10

... understand what she meant. Even Ed Morrissey of HotAir calls them on being misleading, and that's not a good sign: hotair.com/archives/2010/01/16/coakley-on-immigration-we-didnt-pay-attention-to-immigrant-status

Why is Ed Morrissey promoting a skilled immigration edge case, and will HotAir take a fall on amnesty? - 12/16/09

... of an amnesty bill. Meanwhile, Ed Morrissey offers "A curious case of visa denial" [1] which is a bit of a conservative version of a PIIPP (see that link if you aren't familiar with that term). A Romanian gym coach came here on an H1B visa and applied for a green card; the visa was renewed once but not a second time. In the meantime, his wife has started a business and apparently due to his...

Carly Fiorina supports massive skilled immigration ("There is no job that is America’s God-given right anymore") - 11/06/09

Former Hewlett Packard CEO Carly Fiorina recently announced her candidacy as a Republican for senator from California; she's trying to unseat Barbara Boxer. While the latter is a highly worthy goal, she appears to be a globalist, profits-at-any-cost supporter of massive immigration at least of the skilled variety. Her position on low-skilled immigration isn't known, but generally speaking people...

Ed Morrissey of HotAir notes GOP problem, but not smart enough to figure out a solution - 09/07/09

Ed Morrissey of HotAir offers "An end to fringe mainstreaming?" (link) in which he worries about the backlash from the Democrats and the MSM over the Van Jones resignation. He also shows that solving problems isn't exactly his forte: ...we can expect the media to hold Republicans to the standards the conservative punditry imposed on Van Jones, and to be a lot more aggressive about it than they...

Ed Morrissey must think that Hawaiian state law is a "Birther theory" - 07/23/09

Low-level conservative commentator Ed Morrissey of HotAir recently got a special treat: a shout-out from Media Matters for America in their article 'Unlike Dobbs, some conservative media think birthers are "nutburgers"' (by Julie Millican, mediamatters.org/research/200907220051). Rather than criticizing him, they were giving him a cookie for helping "[to] debunk[] the birth certificate rumors"...

How to get a link from HotAir (note: must be completely shameless) - 06/01/09

... unintentionally hilarious (link). While Ed Morrissey does occasionally say the smart thing, both he and Allahpundit more often than not fall into the go-along-get-along mode and, while they're offering plenty of Sonia Sotomayor coverage they aren't exactly going as far as this. As for those rightwing blogs, most of them are partisan hacks and just generally pretty bad. And, of course, "Ed 2.0"...

Ed Morrissey makes reasonable albeit unrealistic case for tea parties - 04/15/09

Ed Morrissey of HotAir links to a new Gallup poll called "Views of Income Taxes Among Most Positive Since 1956" (link) and opines [1]: If 48% believe that their taxes are just right, it might be because that’s the exact same percentage that will pay zero in the near future, according to Barack Obama’s tax policies. With Obama’s emphasis on refundables, 48.7% of Americans will wind up paying no...

Dennis Roddy /Pittsburgh PG, SPLC, LGF, HotAir, Kos use tragedy to smear opponents - 04/05/09

... supremacist, Alex Jones fan". Over to Ed Morrissey at the same site (hotair.com/archives/2009/04/05/kos-conservatives-like-to-shoot-cops): Those who would use such horrifying tragedies to smear their political opponents are completely unworthy of engagement, and utterly despicable to boot, regardless of which side they’re on.

"Fullerton Tea Party" was not a "tea party", don't be fooled - 03/08/09

... pajamasmedia.com/instapundit/72434) and Ed Morrissey of HotAir (hotair.com/archives/2009/03/08/fullerton-tea-party-gets-15000-protestors). There's a running commentary on the event here and a news report here. UPDATE: There's video from the rally here. And, Insty doubles-down at the first of his links above: A reader emails: "I'm just wondering if 8-15 thousand at Fullerton is enough for doom...

Ed Morrissey /HotAir misleads about Obama birth certificate - 12/04/08

Ed Morrissey of HotAir offers "The sadly obligatory SCOTUS birth-certificate post" (link) in which he joins the long line of people misleading about the Obama citizenship issue. As with others, he links to the Sara Olkon/James Janega article and, among many other misleading statements, says: The State of Hawaii only keeps birth certificates from births in Hawaii. The State of California only...

Conservatives: here's why not to vote for Obama or at least why to vote against him - 10/21/08

Mary Katharine Ham and some other guy offer "The comprehensive argument against Barack Obama" [1]. It lays out a non-smear case against BHO over several categories: abortion, taxes, his radical associations, foreign policy judgment, his disdain for the heartland, his habit of playing the race card, and his lack of accomplishments. And, it will serve a valuable purpose for those millions and...

Is "Barack Obama" a complete scam? (Philip Berg lawsuit; Indonesia) - 10/11/08

... here. And, GOP establishment hack Ed Morrissey comments on the video here. While he echoes my comment above about not counting on this and instead concentrating on easier to prove things, he also shows his GOP hack side by calling Berg a "truther" (I didn't bother looking into that because it doesn't really matter to this case and it might be a smear). He also retails the BHO supporter line that...

Senate immigration amnesty bill: the supporters - 05/21/07

Outside a number of Senators, there aren't too many who support the Senate's immigration amnesty/"guest" worker plan. This post will keep track of them, and I urge everyone to hold those below accountable whether the bill passes or not. I also urge everyone to keep calling Congress, but, even more importantly, follow the steps previously outlined to help stop amnesty. The supporters: * Of course...

Captain Ed: "Why Tom Tancredo Is Not A Serious Candidate" - 04/04/07

Captain Ed of Captain's Quarters comments on the Hugh Hewitt interview with Tom Tancredo here. Hewitt asked Tancredo about the John Campbell/Jim Gilchrist race in Orange County, taking him to task for supporting the latter: Hugh Hewitt: ... [L]et me move on. GOP question, just two years and three months ago, Tom, you endorsed an American Independent Party candidate over the Republican nominee in...

CPAC Day 2: Captain Ed's transcription service - 03/02/07

The blog fight is on! Yesterday, "Captain Ed" posted an interview with Mike Huckabee. In a vain attempt to get someone - anyone - attending CPAC to ask anything remotely approaching a difficult question, I responded ("NoMoreBlatherDotCom"), the "Captain" responded, and now I have the feeling I'm about to be banned from yet another site. I posted the following comment: I just scanned it, but I...

NAU apologists - 11/24/06

[List below updated 12/11/07] Recently, Rep. Tom Tancredo was quoted as saying this: "People have to understand what we're talking about here. The president of the United States is an internationalist... He is going to do what he can to create a place where the idea of America is just that – it's an idea. It's not an actual place defined by borders. I mean this is where this guy is really going...

George Bush intentionally misleads about John Kerry Iraq comment - 10/31/06

Speaking in Georgia about an hour ago, president Bush intentionally distorted John Kerry's earlier comments about Iraq. Yesterday, speaking at Pasadena City College, Kerry said this: "You know, education, if you make the most of it, you study hard, you do your homework and you make an effort to be smart, you can do well. If you don't, you get stuck in Iraq." The explanation is that he meant to...
