With the upcoming debate, I’m sure even the dullest student can find a way to associate Obama with “prevaricate.”

To prevent further grade inflation, I have re-scaled the curve. The highest grade will be A+++.

No pushing at the door please!

I’m a little bit later than usual today, having stayed up to all hours watching the Yankees’ extra-inning victory.

If anyone wants on (or off) the PING LIST, please let me know.

You are opening all kinds of replies based on the prevarications of “Dear Leader” (Obama). For instance, how many prevarications will we hear tonight from Obama and his supporters in the media? I could go on and on, but you understand my meaning, I’m sure.

I was not early enough to prevericate, so I’ll just vericate instead

You're the first one here, and that's no prevarication.

This is proof that the lamstream Media prevaricated regarding Obozo's real character in 2008.

Here's some more prevarication from our side in return for the favor......

I'm sure the MSM didn't see either of these things coming and maybe we can call this our October surprise for the media.....it sure takes them off point when they're trying so hard to stiffle the discovery of the true facts of these articles.

Great links. Obama is a clean and articulate Black man who doesn't speak in the dialect (unless he wants to.) So which is real and which is the put on--the "Citizen of the World" voice that reads the teleprompter, or the voice of Kingfish from the old "Amos 'n Andy show?"

Voting news from Ohio here and from Florida here

When following the news on Florida make sure you read the comments section to understand whats really going on.

The Ohio news is on the heavily Democratic Cuyahoga County Cleveland area. For those of you who don't know, this is the county who's numbers need to be overcome to win Ohio....which has been done many times in recent years.

“Prevaricating Packages of Poop” is a lovely way to describe democrats.

I used to say “LYING SACKS OF #$%^”, but then I attended Charm School.

Obama meets Romney in debate
where he will prevaricate
Skirting the truth
always uncouth
attempting to escape his fate.

The registration and absentee ballot info that is coming in flies in the face of the mainstream media meme that the race is in the bag for their hero. But one thing really scares me, and that’s the betting on Intrade. People who are putting up actual dollars have bid Obama up to 75. (For those of you unfamiliar with Intrade, if your prediction comes true, you win 100. If it doesn’t, you get zero. So, betting on Obama, you pay 75 to receive 100, a gain of 25. On a $75 bet, that’s 33% profit. A bet on Romney trades at about 25. If he wins, you would, of course, receive 100, a gain of 75, or a 300% profit.)

My thoughts on Intrade, which has had a good record as a predictor, is that the people who are betting are subject to the same misinformation and disinformation as the rest of us, and are wagering based upon it. Or, pardon my tinfoil hat, George Soros and his ilk are bidding up Obama’s prospects in order to destroy our incentive.
The other possibility—that the bettors are correct—is too horrible to contemplate.

Here in the boonies, we have trash talked Obama since the ObamaCare debate started. Believe me, dems join in with the rest of us. Folks were in shock and mourning about their country. I don’t think they need any more incentive to vote him out. It will depend on the useful idiots, who are not motivated to carry signs, hand out literature or write new songs this time around. The kind of folks who have the resolve to show up and vote him out are not the type to invest in Intrade, or to even know what it is. They have no money to waste after bill paying.

It’s what I am telling myself in my pep talk.

Nice poetry. Does Obama give a “dam” about the debate, or will he rely on lies and assistance from the media?

Isn't Intrade overseas (British) based?

My thoughts on Intrade is that this election isn't going to be like any other they've been around to bet on...... There are too many people out there who know how to read a polls internals now and can disseminate the information to others that we know.

Somebody on here likened it to the Catholic Church being the only one who spoke Latin, therefore, they pretty much told the masses who couldn't read Latin what to think......BUT..... now that the masses have learned how to read Latin "the church" (Like the MSM) doesn't control the information exclusively anymore.....

And if it's looking sooooo good for Obozo then why does this guy have his short and curlies so tangled up for?

Everywhere there is a market, there are people trying to manipulate others. Get the suckers to pay high prices right before the crash. That’s the way to win big, right?

I’m not sure where Intrade is based, but since Americans can bet on political outcomes, I don’t think it matters. In the past, one could bet on sports in real time, and the odds would be reflected with every completed pass or base hit.

I do think that Intrade might just be mirroring the polling, and that the odds will get much closer to 50-50 as we approach Election Day.

It could be a “pump and dump” scheme. I’m not really that familiar with how much volume actually trades there. The greater the volume, the more difficult it would be to manipulate.

My paralegal was in here looking for reassurance this AM. I said i can only hope that much like in 2010, and in the WI recall, there is a silent, angry horde that cannot wait to be unleashed on the polls. They don’t respond to polls, they don’t know from Intrade, and they are disgusted with the MSM. There’s no reason [other than the bogus, manipulated polls] to think anything has changed in the past two years.

I won’t watch the debate live because I have a beautiful, large flatscreen tv that would be in grave danger. I will follow it on FreeRepublic, Twitter, and later on, on FOX and Talk Radio. I realize this is a cowardly act, but my failure to watch it live will not change the vote totals of either candidate.

There was an interesting thread here yesterday, which addresses that very issue. I don't like to brag (okay, that's a slight prevarication) but I posted some comments there which you might find interesting, Numbers 6 and 9.

Here it is.....it took me a second to find this......

Where is Intrade? Intrade is incorporated in, and operates from, the Republic of Ireland.

Someone on Freerepublic was saying on a thread that, its easy to make a bet but harder to get your money after the fact. Anyhow.....

By the way, I have seen the original Manchurian Candidate and it is a masterpiece. I just liked the dripping campaign button better for making my point. It seemed timingly appropriate considering Bengazi, and now the 2007 tape of Obama's racist comments.....

I don't like to argue with my students, so I'll just agree with you. I'm brilliant. :)

I responded to the freeper who hasn't laughed in two years, and told him/her to come visit us at our daily get together here. There are usually a few laughs, at the very least.

Obama: um, er...ah, I..um, I er...uh...filibuster finally begins sometime after all that.....

He won’t be able to filibuster and drag on like he does at press conferences, arrogantly telling a reporter he can not interrupt theOne. With skipping out to visit Hoover Dam, my gut tells me he is not ready with quick, forthright answers and it will show. Romney at least had live debate practice against his many GOP opponents in the endless primary season.
