From Gateway Pundit:
Barricuda Brigade says they spoke with the man by phone and he confirmed that he wrote the post.
As I said earlier this week , on Wednesday I went to the School Choice Week Event at Loyola Academy in St Louis. I arrived early and was one of the first to get there, and got to meet and talk a little with Dick Morris. Not about anything in particular, just hellos ans such. Got to listen to him talk about traveling arrangements mostly. But it was nice to meet him. Do not always agree with him, but he is one of the better political pundits out there.
The event was moderated by Jim Hoft of Gateway Pundit fame. He did a excellent job and kept the talk going on not only school choice but also how to make the education system better able to make the kids compete in today’s world. There was also some very good questions from the audience.
The Panel was comprised of Dick Morris, Dana Loesch, Mike Podgursky and Robbyn Wahby of Mayor Slay’s office. There was not 100% agreement from all sides of the issues, but there was common grould and many good ideas on how to improve the education system in the United States and in Missouri. And School Choice is a very big part of it. One of the bi ones I remember is to allow Private Religious schools to receive scholarships from the state for students to go to one of the Catholic or other religions schools. There is legislation to the MO Gov to allow this.
All in all, it was a great experience to go see people from all over the political spectrum discuss this and in a more or less non partisan atmosphere. the education system in the USA needs to be more innovative and help the children become competitive in the world that is changing rapidly.
Stacy on the Right was asking Dick Morris some questions after the event while I was video taping it from her phone, but unfortunately her phone ran out of space t video tape it all.

From Gateway Pundit:
But, there’s more…
Top Obama bundler George Kaiser made multiple visits to the White House in the months before the company was granted a $535 million loan from the government. And top Solyndra officials also made numerous visits — 20 — to the White House, according to logs and reporting by The Daily Caller. Solyndra officials in the logs included chairman and founder Christian Gronet and board members Thomas Baruch and David Prend. The company secured the $535 million loan despite the fact that it was widely known Solyndra was in deep economic trouble and had negative cash flows since its inception.
Kaiser said he did not use political influence or talk to administration officials about a massive government loan to Solyndra.
It has now been confirmed that White House officials sat in on the Solyndra meetings this past year.

Voters remain strongly supportive of a free market economy over one controlled by the government and still think small businesses are hurt more than big businesses when the government does get involved.
A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 72% of Likely U.S. Voters believe a free market economy is better than an economy managed by the government. Just 14% think a government-managed economy is better. Another 14% are not sure. (To see survey question wording, click here).
After years of
laundering funneling millions of dollars through ancillary groups to get it into Media Matters hands and in turn Media Matters denying they received funding from George Soros (H/T to Gateway Pundit) we learn that George Soros has made a Million Dollar donation directly to Media Matters.
From the NYT
Media Matters, the liberal activist group that wages a rhetorical war against Fox News Channel and others in the conservative press, will announce on Wednesday the receipt of a $1 million donation from the philanthropist George Soros.
In a statement obtained by The Caucus, the organization says it plans to use the money to intensify its efforts to hold the Fox host Glenn Beck and others on the cable news channel accountable for their reporting.
“Fox has transformed itself into a 24-7 G.O.P. attack machine, dividing Americans through fear-mongering and falsehoods and undermining the legitimacy of our government for partisan political ends,” the group will say in the statement, to be released Wednesday afternoon.
In an accompanying statement, Mr. Soros, a billionaire who has a history of supporting liberal politicians and causes, accused Fox News hosts of “incendiary rhetoric” and said he hoped that his money would be used “in an effort to more widely publicize the challenge Fox News poses to civil and informed discourse in our democracy.”
Today conservatives can feel a sense of vindication having been ridiculed by the left for making these connections although we need to be more vigilant than ever since desperation on the part of liberals has exposed the facts and they’re willing to through huge money at shutting you/us up!
