The United States tops the overall ranking in The Global Competitiveness Report 2007-2008. Switzerland is in second position followed by Denmark, Sweden, Germany, Finland and Singapore, respectively.

The rankings are calculated from both publicly available data and the Executive Opinion Survey, a comprehensive annual survey conducted by the World Economic Forum together with its network of Partner Institutes (leading research institutes and business organizations) in the countries covered by the Report. This year, over 11,000 business leaders were polled in a record 131 countries.

New Poll Has the HildaBeast Losing vs all GOP Candidates Barack Obama Winning versus all GOP Candidates

Posted by Thunder Pig on November 26, 2007

For a change of pace, I’ll link to the DUmmies:

This is very significant if true – and this is Zogby’s Interactive Poll — but if the general forecast is true then Obama is polling about 6 points ahead of the entire GOP field while Clinton’s policy and baggage are pulling her down to a 4% loss to ALL GOPers. She is now about 10 points less electable than Barack, and it is now more likely that she would lose rather than win, polling only around 40%.

Clinton would be an electoral disaster for the Democratic Party is what these numbers are saying while Barack, and to a lesser extent Edwards, are winners.

General election match-ups show the New York Senator would lose against every top Republican

A new Zogby Interactive survey shows Democrat Hillary Clinton of New York would lose to every one of the top five Republican presidential contenders, representing a reversal of fortune for the national Democratic front-runner who had led against all prospective GOP opponents earlier this year.

Meanwhile, fellow Democrats Barack Obama of Illinois and John Edwards of North Carolina would defeat or tie every one of the Republicans, the survey shows.

Clinton TRAILS vs.
McCain
42%–38%

Giuliani
43%–40%

Romney
43%–40%

Huckabee
44%–39%

Thompson
44%–40%

Are Ron Pal Supporters Planning Bloodless Coup in North Carolina and the Nation?

Posted by Thunder Pig on November 26, 2007

Katy’s Conservative Corner has obtained e-mail between Ron Paul Supporters planning to become delegates to the North Carolina GOP Convention.

An excerpt:

The delegates to the county conventions are chosen at the precinct level. Most precincts are not organized, and preference is given to republicans who attend who wish to be delegates. So, for example, if you were a new republican went to the precinct convention in Charles Taylor’s precinct, (sic) said you wanted to to be a delegate and he did not attend, you would get the seat. The same is true for the county conventions, and all the way up the line. So, this must start at the ground level.

Source: Katy’s Conservative Corner, where you can read the rest, and follow links to the email, where I found this gem:

i was primarily thinking that it would be most effective to pool from
those 100+ Meetup group members we already have to get them to be more active in the local GOP meetings and become a delegate. Seems to me it is these folks that have the drive to do so.

Otherwise, it seems it would be a LOT of work to contact so many voters in a district to try and persuade them to consider supporting Ron Paul, let alone getting involved at a much deeper level.

i plan to continue pushing our group’s members in this direction, as Ron Paul NEEDS support in the GOP delegation!

Commentary

So much for getting out the vote…sounds like a short circuit to the electoral process to me! Not enough voter support? Bah! Voters, who needs ’em when your man must be elected. No wonder these guys can’t get recognized to vote in North Carolina…they can’t be troubled with going door-to-door as that would cut into their time at the local overpass!
