Obama camp may be freaking out today
American Thinker ^ | October 5, 2012 | Richard Baehr

Posted on 10/05/2012 10:54:11 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

New swing state polls are out today from Rasmussen and We Ask America, all taken yesterday after the first Presidential debate. In Rasmusssen surveys, Romney is up 1

in Virginia (he had been down 1) , up 2 in Floria (he has been down 2) and down 1 in Ohio (same as before)

We Ask America has Romney up 3 in Virginia (last survey had Obama up 3), up 1 in Ohio (first survey in this cycle for the state), and up 3 in Florida (last survey had Obama up 3).

The average of the surveys from the two polls in each of the three most critical swing states puts Romney up 2 in Virginia, up 2.5% in Florida, and even in Ohio.

A new Gravis poll has Obama up 1 in Nevada, another swing state....

Expect the hate to be ratcheted up to new levels, very quickly. A LOT of Obama worshippers are shocked/angry about what happened at the debate. And a lot of those are mentally ill.

At the risk of sounding overconfident, a Romney “win” in the next debate could initiate a used-lunchmeat condition in our favorite little Marxist. Lots of undecideds, apparently, are deciding.

That's why Romney better have his armor plating fortified during the townhall debate. I think we'll see 'the fix is in' refined to new heights. Expect an ambush, but if too overt could backfire. How many people thought the 7.8% unemployment figure was LEGITIMATE in a recent poll, LESS THAN 1%?? >>http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/2940975/posts

Here's the thing about unemployment figures ...

Regardless of whether they are accurate or not, they are completely disconnected from economic issues in one critical respect. They don't adequately measure the employment situation for the one person who really counts in this election season: each and every individual voter.

There's simply no way for a political candidate to spin a strong employment report for someone who is still unemployed, a sound economy for someone who is having trouble paying for necessities that are getting increasingly expensive, etc. As one Freeper astutely noted a few weeks ago, even people on welfare and people collecting Social Security Disability checks have to buy gas and groceries.

As I type, Red Eye Radio is on, a recap I believe. They denoted some big Debate Professor who's teams have gone on to national titles said the following and I para-phrase here....

. Romney's style of debating and his skill set within it will not change for the 2 going forward. He is who he is. Hidden in that (as a hint) is the strong possibility of him winning big again.

If so, stick a fork in him, the lear deader is done politically...

Right on. I think they are not looking to make an even decision. I think they are looking for any reason to vote against obama. Any kind of decent performance by Romney should do it.

I posited a few days ago that the drumbeat of criticism of Obama for ‘not being aggressive enough” is almost a set-up by Romney: next debate is foreign policy and if Obama comes out angry and aggressive, it will backfire as most people don’t want someone with an itchy trigger finger on the button.

On Wednesday night, at 8pm the brothers at our gathering prayed that the Lord would lift up the man of His choosing and would confound the speech of His enemy. Some also prayed that Obama might come to know the Lord (realizing what He was able to do with Paul, who was breathing out hate against the church.) That, likewise, Romney might seek the Lord while He may be found. That these two men would humble themselves under the mighty hand of God, that in due time one might be exalted and not pridefully so, of course.

Mr. and Mrs. Christian American, it is time to pray. Pray earnestly for our nation. No, as a nation, we don’t deserve His grace (never have). Collectively, America has turned its back on God. All we can do is petition Him for mercy and kindness toward us—seek to move His heart once more so that He might spare us from the reckless path of sin that leads to the downfall of men and women and nations.

Folks ?

Remember not so long ago how the main stream media went all Benghazi ( for those in Rio Linda, that means, going crazy, ruffled feathers, went ape-crap ) when they heard Romney talk about how there was 47% dependent on welfare, food stamps, dependent on government ? and how they wanted so badly to pretend that the number of those dependent on government was actually lower ?

Well then...... IF ? the new faked but accurate unemployment numbers reflect reality ? would not also ? the 47 % number be lower to ?

I might say, that God's heart was moved towards us in that, he sent his son to die for us yet while we were sinners....
God sent his son into the world not to condemn it, but, to save it through him...
God's pure motive was out of love, not wrath.

God's wrath will be upon those who reject Christ, who refuse to trust him, and save them through his blood atoning sacrifice.

Yes, we deserved hell's punishment.... but the bible says....

BUT GOD.....


If we could have saved ourselves, then we would not have of need of a savoir.



BUT GOD..... Out of Love....

Ephesians 2:

1. And you hath he quickened, who were dead in trespasses and sins;

2. Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience:

3. Among whom also we all had our conversation in times past in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind; and were by nature the children of wrath, even as others.

4. But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us,

5. Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;)

6. And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus:

7. That in the ages to come he might shew the exceeding riches of his grace in his kindness toward us through Christ Jesus.

8. For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:

9. Not of works, lest any man should boast.


This is the age wherewith mankind may " SEEK THE LORD, SEEK GOD " ( the only one and true GOD, the GOD of Israel ) while he maybe found in GRACE.

Many say ? " SEEK GOD WHILE HE MAY BE FOUND " .... but ? which God ?

Also ? some say that there are many " WAYS " to God, i.e. some think it's through works, through some prophet, through church attendance... so on and so on.

But GOD, the Christian God, the God of Israel made only ONE way to GOD and that's through the blood, through his son Jesus Christ Yeshua Messiah.

America has turned away from Christ.
America has turned away from Christianity.

Now we have a smorgasbord of many ways to come to GOD in America, and a smorgasbord of " gods " ( with a little g ) here in America.

Those who reject the only way that GOD has made to come to him and be saved: Jesus Christ Yeshua Messiah will be those who will face God's righteous wrath.

Those who trust, believe in, put their hope and faith in, in Jesus Christ, his atoning sacrifice have already had their sins washed away.
God has already thrown their sins into the sea of forgetfulness.

Jesus Christ IS the passover lamb.
Those who trust Christ ?
Judgement has already " PASSED OVER ".
Christ took our punishment and the wrath of GOD for us.

Ryan should say — in his opening line in his debate against the National Town Drunk — that no one should believe any statistics they read concerning the US economy that come out between labor day and the election. Not with this administration in charge of the media.

I wouldn't even go down that road. Arguing over statistics is a political non-starter.

Romney's campaign had the best response to the Labor Dept. figures yesterday, because it came out as a great campaign attack without harping on whether the numbers are accurate or not. In fact, it was an effective response that was applicable even if everyone conceded that the numbers were 100% accurate.

The Romney campaign statement said something like this: "These unemployment figures are completely unacceptable when the country is supposed to be in the midst of a recovery."

That's perfect. Straight and to the point, and dismissive of the numbers without arguing over their accuracy.

“I might say, that God’s heart was moved towards us in that, he sent his son to die for us yet while we were sinners....”

Amen! And He did so while none were seeking after Him! No, not one! And, so, seeing we have a merciful God, who has loved us unto the shedding of blood (His Son’s), we can approach His throne with confidence and know that He inclines His ear to our prayers and, like Abraham of old, we may make petition for a wayward country (God being the same yesterday, today, and forever) and seek for His mercy on behalf of a nation that has earned His wrath.

Ultimately, God is at work controlling, from behind the scenes, the scenes He is behind. He is able to do exceeding, abundantly above all that we ask or think. He can restore America (though, today He seeks individuals, not nations to “Follow Me”). His people can move His heart with prayers of faith and He can choose to bring America to a place where, as in previous eras, she served more like an example of a shining city on a hill, than as she resembles now—the well-watered plain of Jordan.

Key verse: " And you hath he quickened, who were dead in trespasses and sins " .... and in a few verses later, it says that he: raised us up .....
Has nothing to do with our own righteousness or " works " ... it was all of God's work and effort.
A man who does his works, and keeps the law, is still dead in his trespasses because it's only by the blood of Christ that can bring a new birth, salvation.

After the tabernacle was built in the wilderness, after the law was given, after the law books where recorded and records kept, after the 1st and 2nd Temples were built, they all still had to be dedicated and sprinkled with animals blood.
Every year, year after year, century after century until Christ came, and then, in 70 AD, there was a day in the year that there was a blood sacrifice for the priest's and the whole nation's sins.
After 70 AD, that sacrificial system stopped..

And that’s why we may approach the throne of Grace with boldness—we do so in Christ—the name which is above every name. The Father’s estimation of His Son’s work on the cross is that it is the ONLY WORK that God acknowledges as righteous (all other works are as filthy rags!)

So, coming to the Father by way of the Son (and the cross) is as a sweet aroma to God, as the perfume of the sacrifice of His Son is a sweet savor! Full atonement is made for sin. I approach His Throne, He sees His Son and is satisfied. The Father now inclines His ear to me, His redeemed child and He gives attention to my [feeble] request and like a loving Father, grants these in accordance with His will.

I saw a good comment on another conservative blog. The poster was “trumpetdaddy’, and I guess he works in a polling company calling Florida today.

“What a difference a debate makes. Our polling firm was finding nearly even numbers in FL a week or so back. Today, we blew up the phones all across FL. Brutal numbers for Obama. Simply brutal.

Nelson is in pretty decent shape, though.

Obama? Not good in the sunshine state. I heard one call where a nice Jewish lady in Palm Beach Co sheepishly said she was voting “for the Republican, sorry.” Heh.

Be not afraid.”
