    My Money is on T-Paw for Veep

    When he announced his candidacy for President with a web video on May 22, 2011, Tim Pawlenty went immediately and directly after Barack Obama for “not telling the truth”.  The next day in Iowa, he declared: I’m here today to tell Iowans the truth, too. America is facing a crushing debt crisis the likes of which we’ve never seen before.  We need to cut spending, | Read More »

    Does Marco Rubio now have the inside track for the VP nomination?

    Yesterday afternoon, Mitt Romney took the unusual step of taking to the stage to announce that the ABC News story that Marco Rubio was not being considered for the VP nomination was “false” and that Rubio was “being thoroughly vetted” for the nomination.  This after refusing earlier in the day in an interview with Sean Hannity to comment on the story, except to say that | Read More »

    What the latest polls tell us: Romney 285 Electoral College Votes

    In poll after poll in the Battleground States during the past two weeks the movement has clearly been in Mitt Romney’s direction.  The RCP Electoral College Map shows Obama with 221 ECV and Romney with 170 ECV with 12 states that have a combined total of 147 ECV rated as Toss Ups.  Based on the most recent polls in those states, Romney is leading 8 | Read More »

    You know your campaign is in trouble when they start printing the “Hillary 2016″ bumper stickers

    Last week was a really bad week for the Obama campaign.  And to make matters worse, key leaders in the Democratic Party were out again talking up his 2008 nemesis, Hillary Clinton,  for President in 2016.  Apparently the 2012 election is already over.  Somebody just needs to tell Barry. The Hillary 2016 talk started back in March, partly I think to squelch rumors that Obama | Read More »

    Another Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day for Team Obama

    Images from Yesterday: Mitt Romney speaking on the economy in front of the shuttered Solyndra plant.  A picture is worth a thousand words. David Axelrod giving his best Howard Dean impersonation, attacking Romney’s economic record as Governor of Massachusetts–a record that achieved 4.7% unemployment.  Really, David Axelrod.  I guess they don’t trust their other surrogates–Deval Patrick and Uncle Joe Biden weren’t allowed close to a | Read More »

    Romney’s Alternative Path to Winning

    Conventional wisdom has Romney with only one pathway to 270 electoral college votes, and a very narrow one indeed.  Most analysts see the 2012 election as a replay of the last three presidential elections.  In this view, only a small number of states are in play:  Ohio, Florida, North Carolina, Virginia, New Hampshire, Iowa, Nevada and Colorado.  Romney begins with the McCain base of 180 | Read More »

    With Friends like this, who needs enemies?

    Barack Obama is not having a particularly good week with his friends in the mainstream media.  First the editors of Newsweek crowned him (literally, with a rainbow hued halo) “The First Gay President”.  Then CBS/N.Y. Times released their latest poll, which showed him behind Romney 43 – 46 — And this was a call-back poll of voters who had previously placed Obama in the lead.  | Read More »

    Censorship Alert: The Chronicle of Higher Education fires a conservative blogger

Just Read the Dissertations” . As you can imagine, this blog generated a firestorm of responses demanding that the CHE purge Riley’s blog from its web-site and | Read More »

    Obama’s first ad buy and the Electoral College map

    The Obama campaign has made its first ad buy, which is described in Dan Spencer’s diary.  The ad will appear in nine states:  PA, OH, FL, VA, NC, CO, NH, IA, and NV.  This buy reveals a great deal about Obama’s electoral college strategy: 1.  The buy coincides identically with the states that are identified as swing states on the 270toWin Electoral College Map and | Read More »

    Advantage Romney: What the latest polls tell us

    In the past two weeks, Romney has closed the gap in national polls according to Real Clear Politics.  The average of five national polls taken since April 22 (and leaving off the National Journal’s poll of all of the adult population taken before that date) shows Romney with a 46.8% to 46.2% advantage.
