President Barack Obama's big speech at the Democratic National Convention has been moved from a 74,000 seat football stadium to a 20,000 seat arena. In their desperation to hide the fact that our Candidate-in-Chief can no longer draw stadium sized crowds (even when his campaign is willing to bus them in from other states), Team Obama is blaming the change of venue on weather fooling neither the American people nor the chief meteorologistt at a Charlotte television station. Now in addition to this decrease in expected crowd size, there is a lack of festive props to drop onto Mr. Obama at the end of his speech.

The number of Americans filing new unemployment claims increased by 34,000 last week to a seasonally adjusted 386,000. That brings the total number of people currently claiming unemployment benefits under all programs to 5.75 million. When President Barak Obama took office in 2008, 30 million people were receiving food stamps. Approximately 46 million people receive them today; that's one out of every seven Americans.

First lady Michelle Obama shares a very dangerous belief with her husband when it comes to transforming things: that it is most important to be seen as the driving force behind over-reaching changes no matter who they hurt. Toward that end, Mrs. Obama has pushed hard for what has euphemistically been called a child nutrition bill but is in fact a $4.5 billion attempt to implement a high-end solution to unhealthy school lunch programs by stealing future funding for food stamp programs.
