Don’t worry....the celebrity/gay vote will kick in here any minute and rescue obama.... In all seriousness, this is going to put some freepers over the edge, namely, the “obama can’t lose” crowd. What are they going to do if obama is still behind by 5 points come October? Start actively campaigning for obama so that they can prove to everyone just how conservative they are, because as we all know, all true conservatives advocate the defeat of Romney at all costs? This could get interesting......

How many Freepers does it take to change a light bulb?

Answer: 501

One to change the bulb and 500 to stand around and talk about how bad new bulb is gonna be.

A year ago, I would have agreed she would have wiped the floor with both the GOP field and Obama. Her decision not to run makes me wonder.

Was that poll taken before or after George Clooney’s bash? Inquiring minds want to know.

What's worse... If he gets over 50% in a 2 man race, again, he will claim a huge mandate, 2 terms in a row... He will position every GOP reticence (to approve his choices) as racist... He'll claim this is what America wanted, and the media slime will push that mantra

This is a very dangerous person... With no elections to judge him in the future, the amount of damage he could do with another 4 years is unimaginable....

And folks want to send a message... Just wow

Rasmussen’s final 2008 poll was spot on. Final poll result 52-46. Actual election result 53-46.

http://www.rasmussenreports.com/public_content/politics/elections/election_2008/2008_presidential_election/final_rasmussen_poll_results_presidential_election

Obama performed a couple of points better on election day in swing states than he did in Rasmussen’s final polling. I’m not sure if hat was due to massive vote fraud or gotv efforts.

Ignore the polls right now, especially these tracking ones. They are all over the place. This time next week Obama will be at 50% and Romney @ 45%

I’m sure this will go up and down till November, with many more Obama surprises thrown in. But if these numbers actually reflect the opionons of the people, then they show that the people are not falling for Obama’s continuous, blatantly political games.

Very good points, both.

Of course, the left can now renew its mantra: B-B-But, Rasmussen cannot be trusted! (Never mind that Rasmussen polls likely voters, whereas most other polling organizations settle for those who are merely registered voters.)

Oh, in addition, one might want to keep in mind an important point: Dick Morris has noted (repeatedly, both in his e-newsletter and on FNC) that the Undecided vote breaks heavily against the incumbent, almost every time (with 2004 being the one exception in presidential elections analyzed since 1964). In fact, on average, the incumbent gains zero percentage points beyond what is shown in the final pre-election poll. (In other words, if, say, the incumbent shows 47 percent in his corner, with 46 percent in the challenger's corner, and the remaining 7 percent undecided, the incumbent will probably end up with about 47 percent of the total vote.)

It is something to consider...

RE :”Had to suffer through PMSNBC for a bit last night. They were all having leg tingles over Zero's homo-lovin’. As far as they are concerned, this is Zero's Defining Issue and it will raise up an army of “young voters” to sweep him back into office.

I watched most of the shows. Their new theory (which they may not even believe themselves) is : because Romney is refusing to get involved with this while Obama talks about it on camera, that means that Romney knows that it gives Obama the advantage.

Funniest line yesterday was Mathews asking Tony Perkins :”Why can't the government recognize Gay people's love?

Wisconsin will be a key bellwether next month. The recall election will tell more than all the primaries. If Walker wins decisively, as he certainly should, then the 'rats will have a serious headache to deal with.

As for Romney getting everything he wants from a lapdog GOP Congress, remember Bush and his croney Harriet Miers. Remember Bush's "comprehensive immigration reform" and "see you at the bill signing, conservative suckers." Didn't work out quite the way Rove and Bush planned, did it.

With a strengthened conservative caucus and a GOP Senate, many things become possible whether a Pres Romney likes it or not.

Obama is desperate to get our minds off the economic doldrums but they exist, even if gas prices have eased off a bit.

Actually they are on the way back up again. Several weeks ago regular in my area(Northern CA)was 4.25, it dropped to 4.17 and then in on day shot back up to 4.25.

It varies slightly from station to station but they all saw the same ups and downs.

That's the 'rat trap...if they yank obama they risk alienating the black vote, without which they are a mere splinter party.

In retrospect this is the most important election since 1980, when we elected Reagan and the welfare state mentality took a grievous wound. Even then, at least no one seriously considered Carter or later Mondale to be anti-American traitors. Looking back at Carter, maybe not so clear. Mondale was just a greedy leftwing union pig at the trough.

Now, we have an alien antiAmerican who clearly does not know or care about this Nation at all. He must be eliminated from the political scene.

The drive for Dems to dump Obama is afoot and moving inside the Democrat Party

Interesting, but I don't think so. The last insurgency that promised success was aborted by the assassination of Bobby Kennedy. Teddy Kennedy's gambit against Carter in 1980 was merely a granfalloon. The day of heroic political extravaganzas is over. The Clintons are counting their money and looking for their next retirement haven.

I think more people were turned off by the fact that Obama was obviously pandering that on the gay marriage issue itself...since I think most people already knew where he truly stood.

Romney takes whatever position he (or his handlers) think will garner him the most votes.

I judge him by his actions and the fruits of his labor. - Romneycare and appointments of liberal judges or no judges at all.

Your right about the cursing... But Im just spitting mad at folks right now and its only going to get worse when Im proven right... again...

Im just so sick of folks thinking their taking the “high road” by choosing to just go along with the flow instead of FORCING a change. Its no “high road” they are taking, they are on the wrong road... The road to socialist hell.

I honestly do not know what its gonna take to get all the rest of you people as mad as i am. Im beginning to think NOTHING will. A significant percentage of the “conservative” population would rater crawl under a rock and hide than join in direct confrontation.

I am mad, and have been a long time. It’s going to take a long time to get out of the mess we’re in, if we can.

If we remove Obama and have a conservative House and Senate, that will be a huge step back from the very edge of the precipice we are now at.

When we take that step back we will also be in a better position to plan the next step, and the next, and the next.

I have no problem with people making their own moral decision based on their conscience. I may not agree with it, but it is there’s to make and in this case I certainly understand it.

Looking at all the options, I have chosen my path to try and address this sickening situation, one I feel will be most beneficial to my kids and now eight grandkids in the hopes they may have the benefits of liberty that I have enjoyed in my 56 years...and according to the oaths I have taken to my God and the Constitution.

That’s in lare part why I penned the following:

Well it looks like some backlash has started.

What we need to figure out is what kind of backlash.

I think there are two.

1) Those who believe marriage should be between a man and a woman only. (Romney covered for that by also claiming he also shares this belief)

2) Those who feel Obama is out of touch with the more important issues: The Economy / Jobs / Gas prices

Hopefully Romney will quickly state his stance on gay marriage, get back to the important issues and let Obama continue to define himself and his priorities to the American voters.
