|Oh, that old thing? Doesn't work anymore|
*** PING ***
Not even close. About every other day my Virginia mailbox has hit pieces on Romney inside. The radio plays vicious anti-Romney ads on country stations "not endorsed by any candidate". I don't have a TV, but it's probably the same story there.
It never has worked!
You are right, almost all of the negative ads. Turned the TV on the first thing this morning and there was a negative ad against Romney here in VA
I don't think Romney will win New Jersey, for three reasons:
1. Northern NJ has too many liberal, cities like Jersey City, Trenton, and Atlantic City are controlled by Democrats who are so corrupt they ship voting machines to inner city polls that are pre-loaded
2. The unions are not huge in number compared to the population, but they have a stranglehold on power
3. New Jersey has no voter ID law (in fact, if you show your ID at the polls, the old bitty liberal hacks working there will SCREAM at you to "Put that AWAY!") Trust me on this
Still, it is amazing Obama (who is so desperate these days he is sounding like a woman caught shoplifting lipstick from WalMart) and Crazy Joe Biden (who came off as the biggest Jerk on the planet 2 weeks ago and thinks he "won") are in trouble in New Jersey.
Why is this?
1. New Jersey citizens have been abused, raped, and robbed by the property tax mafia. Most have seen their taxes go up 130% in 8 years. Most telling: 94% of property taxes go to school salaries and pensions, but yet 1/3 off all retired NJ teachers flee the state when they retire and head to North Carolina or Florida.
2. Chris Christie has show people that you can fight this corruption, and win. The left are bullies. When you punch back, they are left stunned and fearful.
Race plays a huge factor here. Over 1/3 of all property taxes get funneled to "Abbott Schools", which are all minority districts that get $21,000 per student funding. They rob the white, middle class suburban tax base so the that the inner city schools can have astro turf football fields and every other amenity, and yet their reading, math, graduation, and crime statistics are abysmal.
The first debate cinched it for Romney as people saw that Romney is not the uncaring plutocrat the Obama people had painted him to be and more importantly people saw Obama as the empty suit he really is. The second debate simply made Obama’s economic failure manifest. Obama tried to make it look like he hadn’t been President for the last four years and was just running for office with no track record, but even the Democrat shills in the townhall audience couldn’t swallow that lie.
I think that the last two points outweigh the first three
I think that the LiEberals are focused other places and think NJ is in the bag. Christie won despite the handicaps Romney an too
I watched Hannity last night and the speeches at the Al Smith Dinner. Obama went on to praise Romney (to praise himself) for being a family man and father, titles higher than any political office. Why say that? Now I know, he's trying to shore up his Black voting base, reminding them he's not a 'punk*ss, cake boy' (as reported in HillBuzz).
Now, this all is going to come as a shock to Michelle. I'd like to be a fly on the wall, when the penny drops for Michelle. Mount St. Helens will be put to shame. She won't like being classified by the wrong Rev. Wright as a women 'no straight man would marry'. Woo boy, stand back, waaaaay back!
I think Dick Morris (I know, I know) had it right here.
He said from the beginning that Obama was basing his campaign on fantastical character assassination (well, it did work against Palin) and poured all his cash into that - killing people’s wives, evil Bain, etc.
The moment Romney had a signature event where he came across as a good and intelligent person, that lie was exposed and the campaign collapsed.
Rush said it also - in his America, people don’t like liars. Obama is one of the worst liars I’ve ever seen in politics (how can he be worse than Clinton? But he is - amazing!) and the Libya question is exposing him bigtime. He was just too out there with it, and got caught too strong. I almost think he would have been better off if he had let Romney win that point, instead of trying twist it in front of millions.
Yes, even in NJ, the thought of watching O on the tv screen for another 4 years is nauseating to most. Obama had the look of a man who knows it’s OVER last night at the Al Smith dinner, despite the jokes. He’s already checked out.
I almost think he would have been better off if he had let Romney win that point, instead of trying twist it in front of millions.I thought the exact same thing. He had the Libya point won or at least neutralized. But by throwing in that grade school grade lie (I used the word "terror" the next day), shows his to be a weaselly liar. A parser.
I just read that Hillbuzz piece. You are right. It is utterly brutal.
It is anecdotal evidence. But ....it is still very very powerful. It’s easy to say “the plural of anecdote is not data”. And that always seems to be a bubble bursting touchee. But if you think about it, it really isn’t. Of course anecdotes are data. The point is you just have to know which of them are merely anecdotal, and which are evidence of a larger trend. Therein lies the art.
And this particular anecdote rings true. You are so right. The dam is bursting.
I would not put any trust in Gallup’s numbers. Gallup is also report unemployment down to 7.3%
Continue to pay attention to Rasmussen who is not subject to radical swings. His numbers this morning will be 2/3rds post-debate numbers.
He has been the most accurate for the past few presidential campaigns.
And be suspicious even of him.
I’m still seeing Obama’s negative ad about Romney ending funding for Planned Parenthood this morning here in Florida.
...Team Obama -- shifting gears frantically in desperation -- has now taken down almost all of the negative advertising (that their whole campaign was based upon)...The emperor was naked all along, but the Partisan Media Shill CGI isn't working anymore.
As Dick Morris put it, if you ask somebody if they think they'll be married to the same person in a year from now and they respond 'undecided', it doesn't bode well for the relationship, does it...?[/snip]
If Chrisie can beat Corzine in NJ three years ago and is pretty well liked, why can’t Romney beat Obama now? How have things changed in favor of ‘Rat candidates since ‘09? Wouldn’t Romney capture just about all the Christie voters if they’re still around?
There is a bit of a difference. Unlike with Zero, Corzine did not have a cult of personality surrounding him.
So the operative phrase here is cautiously optimistic.
Cult of personality? There again, that's what so wrong with so much of the general electorate, that they value personality over issues and ideas.
This is a problem particularly in younger women, too many of whom make their choice for the highest office in the land as if they were contestants on "The Dating Game."
Please don't get offended, ladies, that observation doesn't include FReeper gals.
Thank you for the question, and I know that you ask it sincerely. Please forgive me, in that I could only reply to the ping up to the Freeper "Clintonfatigued" and not beyond that as I could not see the addresses. Perhaps you could forward my reply.
First, a bit about New Jersey politics of late. Up until a few years ago, a very dear friend of mine (African-American male) was very high up in NJ politics. In fact. we were very, very close friends. He worked for both the Gov McGreevey and Gov Corzine administrations - up close.
The first collapse of NJ support for both of these governors came from a revolt from the general population because of property taxes.
The second revolt came in the financial sense from American Jews. The betrayal was multi-facited: from taxes to support of Israel. Sadly, the former was sometimes a greater motivation than the latter, but that is reality. BOTH of them, however, had a major impact.
A third aspect, (which the dirty pols in NJ have NEVER been able to figure out) was a broken promise that the NJ sales tax under Corzine would increase temporarily, and THEN we could get relief from a 130% property tax increase in only 8 years. No one has ever addressed that broken promise (even Chris), and the voters are still angry about it.
I am former military. I have flown aircraft all over the world, and I have lived in many countries.
New Jersey is sort of like a Balkanized Midwestern state. You have rich liberals dictating politics to poor blacks and Hispanics who don't want their dictates, and lower, middle, and upper class whites divided about 50/50 with Catholics leaning Democrat and a small, but influential Evangelical Protestant population leading the way towards Reagan Conservatism.
Even still, this state is beautiful. There are miracles going on here God is looking after His own.
Perhaps NJ will turn for Romney. I pray it will be so.
