CMA Juror No 3, Jennifer Ford ABC interview

http://abcnews.go.com/US/casey_anthony_trial/casey-anthony-juror-sick-stomach-guilty-verdict/story?id=14005609

at 1:58 she said:  “We had a lot of discussion, we started to go through some stuff, but none of it…..how did she die?”  They were out for a grand total of 10 hours.

I understand if the state did not prove the case, but I heard her say it was easier for her to believe the drowning story (with no testimony at all) than to believe the state’s chloroform and duct tape evidence.  Opening statement is not evidence.   And she’s talking about punishment and they were not supposed to be considering punishment in the guilt phase of the trial.

See verdict forms and the instructions of the judge to the jury:

I listened to the video of the interview she had with ABC, and I picked up on the “we started to go through some stuff” meaning that they did not take the time to even go over the evidence.  Juror No. 3 is a 32 year old nursing student (but not in school right now) living with her mother.  I wonder who the foreperson of this jury was.

The more I find out about the jury, the more I am convinced Casey did get a jury of her peers.  One had trouble staying awake, at least one had DUIs, one had a sister who had, along with her boyfriend, done some assault on her mother.

Ford said this about her fellow-jurors:   “They picked a great bunch of people, such high integrity. And there was high morale,” she said. “We all joked. We are like a big group of cousins.”

Barack Obama is lying more than Casey Anthony

Is there any mindset which defines Obama’s default attitude better than to say it is simply “adolescent?” No, for the following reasons. Barack’s interactions with the real world evokes from him responses which can be described as: angry; superior, haughty, dismissive, dishonest, petulant, cocky, petty, vengeful, mocking, holier-than-thou, and full of faux-insights and dishonesty. In other words, Barack acts like a big kid pretending to be someone he’s not, everyday on the job. This is not only aggravating to observe, and depressing to consider, but worse—extraordinarily dangerous for a leader.

Obama economy: “Hardest times in a lifetime”

Are you better off now than you were two years ago?

Timmy Tax Cheat Geithner…..

…..tells NBC’s “Meet the Press” on Sunday that it’s a very tough economy. He says that for a lot of people “it’s going to feel very hard, harder than anything they’ve experienced in their lifetime now, for a long time to come.”

Well,  thank you, Barack Obama.  For nothing.

Senator Barack Obama, in 2006, said the following:

“The fact that we’re here today to debate raising America’s debt limit is a sign — is a sign of leadership failure.  Leadership means the buck stops here.  Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren.  America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership.  Americans deserve better.  I therefore intend to oppose the effort to increase America’s debt  limit.” …..Barack Obama

In November of 2008 unemployment under Bush was 6.5 a 14 year high at the time:

U.S. unemployment rates under President Bush have reached a 14-year high. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, unemployment climbed to 6.5 percent in October, as the country shed 240,000 jobs. U.S. unemployment rates under President Bush have certainly increased–for example, the unemployment rate for October 2007 was 4.7 percent.

Unemployment for June, 2011 – 9.2 percent.

In November, 2008, president-elect Obama said:

In a Chicago press conference Nov. 7, the same day the unemployment data were released, Obama acknowledged the job losses and their toll on the workforce, noting, “we’re going to have to act swiftly to resolve it.” He went on to say that until Jan. 20, the Bush administration is in charge, but, “Immediately after I become president, I’m going to confront this economic crisis head-on by taking all necessary steps to ease the credit crisis, help hardworking families, and restore growth and prosperity.”

Today, July, 2011, under Obama, unemployment is at 9.2 percent.

Rewind to beginning: 

Timmy Tax Cheat Geithner…..

…..tells NBC’s “Meet the Press” on Sunday (July 10, 2011) that it’s a very tough economy. He says that for a lot of people “it’s going to feel very hard, harder than anything they’ve experienced in their lifetime now, for a long time to come.”

Well, thank you, Barack Obama.  For nothing.

Unemployment numbers: 

2005 – 5.1 (Bush)

2006  – 4.6 (Bush)

2007 – 4.6 (Bush)

2008 – 5.8 (Bush)
