Boy! The pollsters sure taught Barack Obama a thing or two! If the election happened tomorrow, do you know who would beat him like a rented farmer’s mule? Mitt Romney! Of course, there’s a catch. The election was a year ago, and Mitt was the mutt that just didn’t quite have the sniff when it counted. Could this be the sign that the Progressives are finally on the way down from their hubris-laden perches of power and influence? It could be, but I have my skeptical doubts.
To date, 19,055 military and overseas Colorado voters have already requested ballots, exceeding the 2008 presidential election totals by 2,804 ballots.

This is already 80 percent greater than the total number of ballots submitted from oversees voters in the 2010 election cycle.
Not a lot remains about which to philosophize. Two weeks remain, the debates have finished and Campaign 2012 is down to the brass tacks of game-day execution. Having read everyone’s polls until I’m sick of the concept, I can boil election 2012 down to the following if/then/else statement.
If turnout >= D+5, then Barack Obama is re-elected
Else, America is liberated.
To me, the Facebook IPO is a perfect metaphor for the Barack Obama Economy. It has the awesome sales-pitch. Everybody is excited and nobody had better dare talk it down. All the experts touted the cutting-edge science explaining why it was the best idea for the current situation. Then, we’ll let Christina Romer explain bluntly* what exactly happened next.
With so much debate about the future direction of this nation, as we listen to Barack Obama, Democrats, union bosses, #occupiers, and Karl Marx’s other disciples from the Left make claims upon that which does not belong to them, among all that which has been written on the topic, one particular op-ed has always stood out as a beacon of clarity.

Racism has again raised its ugly head in this presidential election and it has filtered all the way down to the classroom level where, in Philadelphia, a high school student was threatened with assault by her geometry teacher last Friday for wearing a Mitt Romney t-shirt. According to the Philadelphia Inquirer, last Friday was dress-down day for students at Charles Carroll High School in Port | Read More »
Back in July, ACORN-aficionado James O’Keefe exposed New York union bosses caught on tape showing their appreciation for the concept of taxpayer-funded “shovel ready” jobs–that is the idea of digging holes only to fill them back in and getting the government (taxpayers) to fund the make-work project. Well, Mr. O’Keefe and his hidden camera team have been at it again–this time exposing how how beholden | Read More »

As the time draws near for Mitt Romney to announce his running mate [Note: Read this important essay from Dan McLaughlin on that pick], the Obama campaign is sending out emails requesting any and all dirt on prospective VP picks, which can be submitted via subject-specific contact pages on its website. Those receiving the send-us-your-dirt treatment include Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal, New Jersey Governor Chris | Read More »
Cameras in place, cue the lights, turn up the mics. And action. Into our view is the most elaborate stage ever seen for a political convention with the enormous Greek columns flanking the stage with two huge video screens displaying colossal images of the Democratic nominee, inevitably our new presidential American idol. Indeed a monumental stage built in the image of ancient times for a Greek God | Read More »
But as the happy feelings faded away, people began to see the grim reality: all leftist systems operate by sacrificing everything else at the altar of equality, which can only be achieved by hobbling the above-equal with regulations while simultaneously empowering the below-equal with welfare, subsidies, quotas and other “well-intentioned” social justice programs. LBJ’s “great society” ideas were re-created time and again in American and | Read More »
“What I’m hearing from folks around the country is: ‘Game on, we’re in, we will do whatever is necessary to elect Mitt Romney now because Obama has shown where he really stands,’” Brown said.

Watch the “From ‘Hope’ to Hypocrisy: Excuses, Excuses” video: This is one more example of Obama saying one thing while doing another or trying to have things both ways. He | Read More »
It appears that the grandfather of Obamacare is slated to become the Republican nominee for president. There’s not much we can do in the realm of presidential politics except hope that the new page on the Etch A Sketch will be better than the old one. At present, the most consequential thing we can do as conservatives is to follow the congressional elections in every | Read More »
