Special atmosphere: St James Park is one of many excellent football stadiums included on the long list by Alex Lowe I HAVE spent most of this week swimming against the tide of public opinion over England Rugby 2015′s decision to scrap Welford Road as a World Cup venue. I think it is the right call. The reaction from Leicester Tigers at being dumped has been emotional and, if I’m honest, a little self-righteous. The club’s chairman Peter Tom tugged at the heart-strings as he detailed Leicester’s contribution to rugby in England, rolling out the names of Sir Clive Woodward and Martin Johnson, as if that earned them World Cup matches by right. The Tigers indicated ER2015 had betrayed the rugby history of Leicester and England in order to chase the filthy lucre elsewhere. Elsewhere, incidentally, includes a stadium that is a little more that a drop-kick away from Welford Road that is bigger, with better facilities and a pitch that measures up. Yes, England have to guarantee the International Rugby Board £80million but this was not a decision based on money alone.There is only 8,000 difference between the capacities of Welford Road and the King Power Stadium. That is not the deal breaker. Too small?: Welford Road is not on ER 2015 shortlist It was the fact that Welford Road’s facilities on and off their small pitch – changing rooms, anti-doping, media facilities – simply didn’t stack up as a venue for the third biggest sporting event

So let me see if I get this straight. If you are successful in this country, you aren’t entitled to it? Is this anything like if you got a business you didn’t build that ? Or Obama in 2005 declaring that if you have financial success in life, it’s nothing more than ‘blind luck?’ Still not convinced this guy is a socialist?
Obama Wants to Repeat “Success” of Auto Bailout With Every Industry …(Auto Bailout Cost Taxpayers $23 Billion)

Barack Obama wants to repeat the “success” of auto bailout with every industry. The U.S. government will lose about $ 23 billion on the 2008-2009 bailout of General Motors and Chrysler. The extra UAW subsidies in the auto bailout cost $ 26.5 billion—more than the entire foreign aid budget in 2011. The Detroit auto bailout was, in fact, a UAW bailout. The Politico reported: “I said, I believe in American workers, I believe in this American industry, and now the American auto industry has come roaring back,” he said. “Now I want to do the same thing with manufacturing jobs, not just in the auto industry, but in every industry.” Now Obama wants to repeat that “success” with every industry. We’re screwed.

Okay, people who are furious about NBC’s Olympics coverage. The network has thrown you a bone: On a press call today, NBC sports head Mark Lazarus said the company is watching the criticism it’s getting on Twitter and Facebook. And “some of it is, in fact, fair,” Lazarus said. Happy? Hope so. Because Lazarus, backed up by NBC research guru Alan Wurtzel, spent the rest of the call describing the network’s coverage strategy — everything live on the Web, much of it live on some cable channels, and the glamour sports on prime-time tape delay — as a huge success. Some of the stats you’ve heard before: Ratings are well above the 2008 Beijing Olympics ; NBC now thinks it may break even or perhaps make a small profit on the Games, instead of losing $ 200 million, etc. And many of the numbers were new. A sampling of data points, which the company said come from NBC internal research, third-party surveys and some studies being done by Google and comScore: On Sunday, 43 percent of Americans said they had heard about some of the Games’ results over the Web before they saw them on TV. But NBC argues that this turns out to be just fine: 67 percent of people who knew about the results said they would watch, anyway — more than people who hadn’t heard about the Games. On Saturday night, people who had watched livestreamed events that day were twice as likely to watch parts of the same events on the prime-time tape delay. NBC has streamed 64 millio

An energized Mitt Romney delivered one of his feistiest speeches of the campaign in Pennsylvania on Tuesday, accusing President Obama of "attacking success." "Our economy is driven by free people pursuing their ideas and their dreams," Romney said. "It is not driven by government and what the president is doing is crushing economic freedom." Romney made heavy use of an out-of-context quote, however, to make his point. His campaign and Republican surrogates cherry-picked a sentence from a Friday speech in which Obama praised public investments in roads, bridges and other infrastructure, saying, "If you've got a business, you didn't build that." The "that" in question referred to government-led projects like the Internet or the highway system that businesses benefit from, but Romney suggested Obama was telling business leaders they didn't deserve credit for their own companies. "To say something like that is not just foolishness, it's insulting to every entrepreneur and innovator," Romney said. He recounted how a friend, Jimmy John Liautaud, built a successful sandwich business from the ground up. "I do not give government credit for having built that, I give free people credit for having built that business," Romney said. Romney didn't directly address the dominant story on the campaign trail this week, a wave of Democratic attacks on his work at Bain Capital and accusations that he's evading responsibility for investments that le

Today, Voters in Wisconsin are heading to the polls to vote in a hotly contested election to recall Gov. Scott Walker and others in the state leadership. Liberal groups were animated to begin the recall process in large part by Walker’s reforms to public employee unions. His reforms require public-sector workers to make larger contributions to their pensions and health benefits, as many private sector workers do. Moreover, they limit the power of public-sector unions by restricting collective bargaining for most workers and not automatically withholding union dues from workers’ paychecks. These reforms improved the health of the state’s pension system and empowered workers to choose whether or not to pay union dues. The Heritage Foundation’s Jason Richwine points out that despite having to make larger contributions to their pensions and health benefits, Wisconsin government workers are still overpaid compared to private sector employees. Before the reforms, Wisconsin state workers received health benefits about 2.3 times as valuable and pension benefits about 5.7 times as valuable as what workers in large private firms receive. After the reforms, Wisconsin state workers still receive health benefits nearly twice as valuable and pension benefits more than 4.5 times as valuable. Before the reforms, Wisconsin state employees received total compensation (salary and benefits) about 29 percent higher than comparable private-sector work
