After accepting the Republican nomination with a terrific speech Thursday night, former Governor Mitt Romney is flying to the New Orleans area Friday to inspect storm damage caused by Hurricane Isaac.
Romney will meet with Gov. Bobby Jindal and first responders and thank them for their work and see areas impacted by the storm. Romney found it important enough to make such a visit that he is skipping a previously scheduled rally with his vice-presidential running mate Paul Ryan in the battleground state of Virginia this afternoon.
The new Washington Post-ABC News poll finds Romney leads 47 to 46 percent among likely voters. Yes, that is well within the poll’s 4 percent margin of error, but like previous Post-ABC polls, this skewed poll greatly under sampled Republicans giving it a Democrat-leaning bias.
This poll’s sample was 31 percent Democrat, 22 percent Republican, and 39 percent Independent. We’ve been through this before. As mentioned in connection with a previous ABC News/Washington Post poll, based upon exit polling, the 2008 electorate was 39 percent Democrat, 32 percent Republican, and 29 percent Independent. In 2010, it was 35 percent Democrat, 35 percent Republican, and 29 percent Independent.

It looks like President Obama is assisting in a friendly takeover of the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), by Bain Capital. As you may have heard, earlier this year Obama picked Jeff Zients to lead the OMB. You might not have heard that Zients worked at Bain from 1988-1990. The Zients White House biography did not originally admit that fact. Now Obama has appointed | Read More »
A group of former special operations and C.I.A. officers accuse President Obama of spiking the football — taking credit for killing Osama bin Laden, and recklessly leaking intelligence information about the raid that killed Osama bin Laden and other security matters solely to gain political advantage. “Mr. President, you did not kill Osama bin Laden, America did. The work that the American military has done | Read More »

To borrow a phrase from President Reagan, there they go again. As soon as Mitt Romney announced Congressman Paul Ryan as his vice presidential running mate the Democrats again started with their debunked and discredited MediScare campaign. The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee called Ryan “the architect of the Republican plan to kill Medicare” in a fundraising message sent by DCCC Executive Director Robby Mook. A | Read More »

The new Gallup results are not | Read More »
In today’s New York Times we learn that President Obama, in a desperate effort to save his own job, is again spending taxpayer money for political campaign purposes. In light of yesterday’s depressing Gross Domestic Product (GDP) news, Obama should again pivot and focus time on saving everyone else’s job. The country’s GDP growth slowed to an anemic 1.5%, and the Obama campaign ought to | Read More »
Stealing Virginia and maybe the presidency, Chapter 2. There is now a smoking gun that more than justifies the Romney campaign’s concern about the hundreds of thousands of registration forms the Voter Participation Center mailed to Virginia addresses that were partially filled out or “pre-populated” with names and/or information belonging to the recipients’ dead relatives, minor children, non-citizen relatives, already registered voters, convicted felons, and | Read More »
The Romney campaign today has requested an investigation into potential election fraud in Virginia, a Key battle-ground state. The request was necessary because of the shenanigans of the DC-based Voter Participation Center which has mailed voter-registration forms to deceased relatives, children, and even pets. According to the Associated Press, the Voter Participation Center has touted the distribution of some five million registration forms in recent | Read More »
Friday I spoke with WBYZ 94.5 Radio’s Wild Bill McKubby about my recent article, “Romney extends lead among Independents to 14 percent.” During the interview we blow up mainstream media’s meme that the presidential race tied. We also take Obama to task for his $trillion deficits, his 50% increase in the national debt and his incessant Pinocchio campaign falsehoods. You can listen to the interview | Read More »
