Obama’s Libya Lie will be the lasting impression from this debate.
Clearly President Obama did much better tonight than in Debate #1, but then the bar was rather low. Mitt Romney also did well though he missed a few opportunities and inexplicably kept asking Obama questions instead of just destroying the President’s house of cards. On balance I would say it was a draw with perhaps a short term advantage for Obama. However, the huge mistake | Read More »
How Paul Ryan won the VP Debate
It is now obvious beyond serious challenge that Paul Ryan exited the debate against Joe “Giggles” Biden as the clear winner. What have been the dominant themes of post-debate coverage? 1. Biden’s oafish behavior. Q: Does this help Barack Obama win re-election? A: No. 2. Polls show a split decision and general opinion is that it was a draw. Q: Does this help Barack Obama | Read More »
A perfect duo for the Stupid Party
If there was any doubt left, last night’s “debate” washed it away. Though frustrated Republicans often lament the GOP’s stupidity, the Democrat Party is in fact the Stupid Party. Barack Obama and Joe Biden may well comprise the most incapable team to ever hold their positions. Obama did lousy in his debate because: A) He has a lousy record. B) He has no plan for | Read More »
Does Obama Want To Lose?
Some of the comments and behavior of him and his campaign seem bizarre unless he really does want to lose. First of course was his somnolent performance in Denver a week ago. He has followed that up with a Big Bird strategy coupled with an Excuse Du Jour: Jim Lehrer is a putz, Romney lied, Romney changed his mind on something, the air was thin, | Read More »
State of the Race
The RCP average as I write has Mitt Romney up by half a point. This is a huge improvement over a week ago but it should not be cause for unbridled excitement. This is a race that will be decided by turnout. With just under four weeks to go anything could still happen. If I were to compare this to a football game I’d say | Read More »
UPDATED: Romney Up 4 in New Pew Poll….Polling Picture to Start the Week
Pew Research has released its latest poll conducted over the 4th through the 7th and they have Romney over Obama 49 -45. Needless to say I know, but that is a horrible poll for Obama. Pew gives three different partisan ID (PID) numbers. The “General Public” PID is 27R 31D 36I. The “Registered Voter” PID is 33R 32D 31I. The “Likely Voter” PID is 36R | Read More »
Great News From Rasmussen
As predicted here (toot toot) today’s numbers from Rasmussen show Romney up 49-47. This is actually a little faster and more dramatic than I expected them to move. Today’s tracking poll numbers would be made up of Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday so tomorrow’s poll will be the first entirely post-debate poll and may move another point toward Romney. Barring a major backlash from Big Bird | Read More »
Last night’s debate and a prediction on where the polls will go.
Mitt Romney turned in what I believe is the best performance ever in presidential debates. He was crisp, bold, commanding, knowledgeable, friendly, respectful, firm, and relentless. The reaction from the media was unprecedented in my experience. Romney’s dominance of Barack Obama was so thorough and comprehensive that in the ensuing confusion Obama sycophants lost all control and committed widespread truth in their commentary. On both | Read More »
The new Obama video unearthed by Daily Caller
Its hard to say what’s more stomach churning about this. His praise for Jeremiah Wright. His race-baiting on New Orleans. The faux southern black dialect. Or the fact that this clown was actually elected. Or the fact that he may be re-elected. All of the above are nauseating. http://dailycaller.com/2012/10/02/obama-speech-jeremiah-wright-new-orleans Imagine if you can the ridicule Mitt Romney would be subject to if he went into | Read More »
Finally! A positive NBC interview with Mitt Romney.
OK so its from ten years ago but better early than never. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8Yvp8lQpxDU Its interesting to contrast how he was treated then and now.
