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.
Meet the Newest Battleground State: Minnesota In early August, The Washington Dispatch began its weekly swing-state and electoral college poll tracking model. 10 key states were identified as battlegrounds with the potential to go either way on November 6th based on polling data: Colorado, Florida, Iowa, Michigan, Nevada, New Hampshire, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia, and Wisconsin.

Obama’s election firewall is melting like a house of wax all over America. States like Florida, Virginia, Iowa, Michigan, and Wisconsin where President Obama’s election machines had once appeared impregnable are now crumbling. What is even more telling is that Ohio, the battleground of all battleground states is now fast becoming Obama’s possible Waterloo. According to many recent national polls, including results from Fox News | Read More »
With the continuing furor erupting concerning the highly partisan nature displayed by Candy Crowley during the second presidential debate, the real question has evaded the American voter. Who is truly responsible for acts of journalistic misconduct and what should be done when a debate moderator decides to go rogue, as Crowley did in favoring Obama? The Commission on Presidential Debates is the organization which sponsors | Read More »
I actually ended up doing one of these for both candidates. You can find the Obama speech at my blog, if you wish to read it. —————————————————————– Good evening Mr. Moderator, Mr. President and America. The President has spent four years appeasing one, single region in the world. And even in attempting to appease them, he has failed. By now, we all know that, in | Read More »
Tim Gill’s latest liberal political “527” creation recently came under heavy fire from candidates across the state on both sides of the aisle for approving what are being billed as slanderous hit pieces and political bullying tactics.
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.
When America as a nation is strong its leaders do not have to resort to distortion, distraction, deception, or vulgarity to convey the strength and integrity of the nation’s principles. Yet, as the election winds down, and Mitt Romney gains political ground, Hollywood and its race baiting actors like Samuel L. Jackson are out pandering to liberals and minorities. Their transparent goal is to convince | Read More »
With the Vice Presidential debate hours away, new developments concerning its moderator, Martha Raddatz have been disturbing. As Joel B. Pollak at Breitbart reported today, during the 1990 Massachusetts gubernatorial race, Raddatz, who was then known as Martha Bradlee (she was married to Ben Bradlee Jr.), moderated the debate where, like a good race-baiting liberal, she asked Democratic candidate John Silber “why he had not campaigned | Read More »
(Colo.) Despite numerous pledges on the campaign trail to end partisanship and politics-as-usual, state representative Andy Kerr voted with his party 100 percent of the time on Democratic legislation that was brought to the floor for a final vote.
Would the Bureau of Labor Statistics have considered the 40-man crew of Columbus’s shipwrecked Santa Maria (pictured) stranded on Hispaniola, as having dropped out of the work force altogether, or to have accepted part-time jobs? Millions of self-“employed” Americans whose phones stopped ringing after Noon on Thursdays since the 2008 bursting of the housing bubble and the millions that have of late eschewed filing job application | Read More »
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. American Has Become A | Read More »
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 »
1. The Debate Moderators are going to do all they feasibly can to help President Obama. The Debate on Wednesday October 3rd is not going to be Mitt Romney versus Barack Obama, but really Mitt Romney versus Barack Obama and Jim Lehrer.
