Damn that Obama! U.S. manufacturers grew in June at fastest rate in five months

U.S. manufacturers grew in June at fastest rate in five months: ISM

By Jeffry Bartash

WASHINGTON (MarketWatch) - U.S. manufacturers grew in June at the fastest rate since the start of 2015, a survey of executives found. The Institute for Supply Management said its manufacturing index rose to 53.5% last month from 52.8% in May, matching its highest level of this year. The index was also above the 53.2 forecast of economists surveyed by MarketWatch. Readings over 50% indicate more companies are expanding instead of shrinking. The employment gauge jumped 3.8 points to 55.5%. The ISM's new-orders index edged up to 56.0% from 55.8%.

Is America ready for a clown in the White House?

The question became a serious subject as The Donald trumpeted his bid for the Presidency. Of course, it could be argued that George Bush Jr. already took this honor but I think he belongs more in the category of "useful idiot." Any thoughts on this pressing issue?

Cher....Charo...Sting.....Ludacris.....and now........JEB!

Can Jeb make people forget the fuckups that the Bush family are?

Jeb Bush is trying to fool voters into forgetting that he is a Bush by leaving his last name off of his campaign logo and not featuring his last name in his campaign video....

Jeb Bush can’t hide it. He is directly connected to family legacy of failure. If Jeb thinks that an exclamation point instead of last name can fool voters, he is in for a very bumpy presidential campaign.

He didn't know they were prostitutes--thought they were attracted to balding, paunchy old men...

Dominique Strauss-Kahn acquitted of aggravated pimping

During the trial, the three-judge panel looked at whether Strauss-Kahn was one of the organizers of sex parties involving prostitutes held in Paris, Brussels and Washington while he was head of the IMF. Strauss-Kahn and his lawyers have said repeatedly that although he indeed attended the parties, he was unaware that any of the women present were prostitutes.

Just When Christie Thinks He's Outta Bridgegate, It Pulls Him Back In

Apparently, Christie's pals at the legal firm who exonerated him have caused him more problems!

Chris Christie is in South Carolina this week, his first trip there in the 2016 cycle. On Tuesday he spent seventy minutes answering questions from GOP activists, road testing pro-gun, anti-Common Core, and anti-teachers’ union messages as he lays groundwork to enter an ever-widening pool of contenders for the GOP nomination.

It would seem that, for now, the postponement to mid-November of the Bridgegate trials of former Port Authority deputy executive director Bill Baroni and Christie’s former deputy chief of staff Bridget Anne Kelly works in Christie’s favor. The summer could allow him to regain national footing, and it wouldn’t be all that surprising if we see something of a Christie bounce.

But there is something going on in the pre-trial maneuvering that could turn into a real headache for the governor.
