Theme song of the obama campaign:
“Pure opinion: I think this is ground Obama cannot win back unless he tries an October Surprise. Heres why: Obama had been at around 51% before, just a few weeks ago, and Romney gained the upper hand after the debate, but Obama cant do the same because hes the incumbent. Its easy as a challenger to peel voters away from the known quantity if theyre already dissatisfied with his performance, but once they switch, the incumbent has a real hard time getting them back because they already know him. Basically, if youve already decided that youre not going to vote for Barry, youre already locked in. He cant pull you back.”
Good points. I agree.
Am impressed!!! Jumping around the internet blogs this morning, the Obamabot media and Obama’s cohort, dirt bags in the Democrat Party are beside themselves with self-claimed victory of their “socialist” Obama at the POTUS debate last night.
I read the tea leaves much differently....and, I am not referring to GOP comments of Romney/Ryan victory at the same debate. IMHO, Romney whipped Obama good, if not fantsstic, with just the support of the plain old American people!!! Of course, we will have to wait a few days to check the polling activity, but the sense I get is that the folks who count and vote are saying Romney won.
Why? Simple: The Economy stupid. And....having Candy Crowley as a second Obama surrogate, ain’t going down well with the rank & file American public!!! America finally got to see and hear the Chicago dirt bag, Obama at his worst, with contempt for all who would oppose the mighty “would be” Adolf Hitler. Bad vibes across the board. Finally.....this Libya farce and failure is going to do him and the entire Demcrat Party in!!!
You can't push a string in LV/PV. And the Undecideds are down to 2%. It's over.
"That dog won't hunt." I now firmly believe this.
All Obama's horses and all Obama's men won't be able to put 0bama back together again.
Oh, they'll try. But they will NOT succeed.
To paraphrase Samuel Adams after Lexington, on November 6 we will be saying: "It's a good day. For American, I mean."
If Romney is up 6 nationally, he’ll win all of the swing states.
Romney crystallized last night it for everyone who had previously voted and/or was considering voting for Obama - if YOU re-elect Obama then the next 4 years will be like the last 4 years!!!
bb..bbbbbu.....bbbb..bbbbbb..bbbb but all these news sites are saying that he WON THE DEBATE!
Rove just repeated what you posted about no canddate losing at this point in an election when they’ve broken 50%, like Romney just did. DOes anyone have a cite from Gallup’s or another website confirming? This is amazing news if accurate.
Axelrod is really going to be pissed!
WOW WOW WOW!!!
Will the fat lady , Candy, sing now?
The libs still haven’t realized how clean the knife wounds that Romney plunged into Obama last night were. Consider his indictment of Obama’s economic record of the past 4 years (and if you re-elect Obama the next 4 years will be like the last 4 yrs); and then the whole immigration fiasco (Obama blamed it on lack of leadership by the republican “leader) as well as the hit on Fast & Furious and the deaths of Mexicans and Americans.
People are angry out there, and this jive talkin’ wannabe socialist’s schtick has run it’s course. Romney in a landslide repudiation of the media and liberalism.
Mark Levin was saying (before the debate) that people assuming Romney’s bump was die to the 1st debate are wrong- that there is something happening in the country, (my paraphrase: and it has been since Obama got elected - Tea Party, Scott Brown, Scott Walker etc. Obama overreached on the wrong issues and people are fed up.)
Gallup is a liberal pollster...not very accurate! What is the D+ advantage on this poll? +5? +7?
I am betting more like somewhere in the double digits...
