Yay! Gather ’round, everyone, for The Lightbringer has decided to reveal the secret to a booming economy! Fortunately for us rubes, his OFA flunkies have summed it all up in one handy graphic:

If we’re being honest, though, the Underpants Gnomes probably have a better understanding of economics than anyone in the Obama administration.

Obama’s excuse for rampant illegal immigration is quite the #SelfIndictment

http://twitter.com/#!/profpundit/status/483689747584663552

All this time, we’ve been wondering how illegal immigration has gotten so bad. At this afternoon’s press conference, President Obama revealed the answer:

Oh, so that’s what it is. Well, rules are hard … and nobody understands that better than the reluctant rule breaker in chief:

QFE: "The system is so broken that folks don't know what the rules are." – Obama

Why should we expect immigrants to follow the rules when the president regularly sets such poor examples?

Sen. Ted Cruz edges out Ben Carson in #RLC2014 straw poll

http://twitter.com/#!/erikrush/status/473534345761030145

The 2014 Republican Leadership Conference wrapped up this weekend in New Orleans, and Sen. Ted Cruz emerged as the winner of the event’s presidential straw poll, barely edging out Dr. Ben Carson.

http://twitter.com/#!/edshow/status/473579669137424386

Rounding out the top five were Sen. Rand Paul, Gov. Mike Huckabee and Gov. Rick Perry. Gov. Chris Christie came in last with only 1.11 percent of the vote.

Carson’s second place finish is especially impressive considering he did not appear at the event; Cruz was a featured speaker who drew a capacity crowd and several standing ovations.

Cruz easily won the 2013 Values Voter Summit straw poll with 42 percent of the vote. Sen. Rand Paul ran away with the CPAC straw poll in March with 31 percent support and topped the Northeast Republican Leadership Conference straw poll with 15 percent of the vote.

Dem congressional candidate slams ‘Geedy & power hunger Politicians’

http://twitter.com/#!/jt4congress2014/status/510414556024549376

Jesse (J.T.) Smith is the Democrats’ nominee in Alabama’s 3rd congressional district. He lashed out against “raciests” on Monday. Before that, he said congressional Republicans are waaay worse than ISIL. Now he’s speaking out against “geedy,” “power hunger” politicians. No wonder his Twitter feed has become one of Twitchy’s favorites.

We have to ask: Did this guy study spelling and grammar at the University of Cher?

My opponent claim to support Veterans in "public" but voted against H.R.1171 Homeless #veterans Reint. Program Reauthorization in "private".

— JT Smith (@jt4congress2014) September 10, 2014

The roller coaster we endure in this country is bumppier & more irritating than dry shaving on bad skin. We know the CAUSE so, let's fix it!

If he fails to win his congressional race, he could always sign up as a Common Core spokesman.

Update:

A few minutes after our post went up, he tried to cover his tracks by deleting his “geedy” tweet. Sorry, Jesse, that trick never works.

Did OFA delete tweets about Romney & Iraq? No. Use this trick to find them

http://twitter.com/#!/KevinWGlass/status/337987430806327297

We sure do! Attaaaaack Waaaaaaatch!

http://twitter.com/#!/AttackWatch/status/113738429866573824

Before it evolved into @OFATruthTeam, the Obama campaign’s #AttackWatch account was @TruthTeam2012.

On Thursday night, some Twitter users thought the TruthTeam’s pitiful 2012 tweets about Mitt Romney’s position on Iraq had taken a trip down the memory hole. Those tweets weren’t deleted, but because OFA changed the handle from @TruthTeam2012 to @OFATruthTeam in 2013, a search like “from:OFATruthTeam AND Iraq” yields no results.

Want to mine pre-2013 TruthTeam tweets for hidden gems? Use the old TruthTeam handle to try Twitter searches like these:

from:TruthTeam2012 AND Iraq

from:TruthTeam2012 AND al Qaeda

Now we’re getting somewhere. The tweets you find in those searches will show up with the newer Twitter handle, but were tweeted before the handle was changed. We’ll just leave these tweets right here:

Newt Gingrich, others wonder what happened to State Dept’s missing billions

http://twitter.com/#!/newtgingrich/status/452202848319983616

According to a new report from the U.S. Inspector General, the State Department is unable to account for billions of dollars over the past few years.

From the Washington Free Beacon:

The State Department misplaced and lost some $6 billion due to the improper filing of contracts during the past six years, mainly during the tenure of former Secretary of State Hilary Clinton, according to a newly released Inspector General report.

The $6 billion in unaccounted funds poses a “significant financial risk and demonstrates a lack of internal control over the Department’s contract actions,” according to the report.

Just to reiterate, that’s $6 billion missing.

In some circles, that could serve as evidence of horrendous mismanagement at best or a signal of corruption at worst. But not for the Democrats, who still have Hillary labeled as the heir apparent to Barack Obama.

Maybe a reporter from a mainstream outlet will just come right out and ask Hillary what happened to the cash. Ok, stop laughing.

Where is the money?

‘Onesies for all’? Amanda Carpenter slams the state of Obama’s economy

Indeed.

The workforce participation rate in December is tied with October for the lowest level since 1978, according to government data.

Ted Cruz adviser Amanda Carpenter paints a dismal picture of Obama’s economy, with a little help from the much-mocked Pajama Boy:
