How many Freepers does it take to change a light bulb?
One to change the bulb and 500 to stand around and talk about how bad new bulb is gonna be.
Crap. “the” new bulb. Sorry.
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.
Hey! Look at us! We survived the primary season without being purged from FR! =)
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
The left will despise him no matter what (see Scott Walker). He’ll not want to piss off conservatives (see George Bush). I agree with your assessment
That’s one of the best bumper stickers I’ve seen in a LONG time
To your point, look at my post #183
Rasmussen’s final 2008 poll was spot on. Final poll result 52-46. Actual election result 53-46.
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.
It was posted by a FReeper..don’t remember his name.
He said we should all feel free to use it.
Thanks . It’s awesome
Zero is only up 4 points in OREGON!!!!!!
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%
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...
LOL! But not too far from the truth. The MSM distorts on a level with Pyongyang.
What about PA? We recently passed a voter photo ID law so the undead in Philly will not ne able to vote this election.
How many gays are out of work?
Its the economy stupid once again......the GOP needs to be hammering that point more.
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?”
In presidential elections, PA hasn't been a red state since '88.
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.
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.
And just which black and hispanic voters would those be?
That's the 'rat trap...if they yank obama they risk alienating the black vote, without which they are a mere splinter party.
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.
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.
This is where it came from:
“Thanks! I designed it on one of those do it yourself bumper sticker making sites. Feel free to post it on other threads as it does sum it all up well-lol

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.
You’re all forgetting the possibility of the Arkansas gambit. Another casualty added to the “friends of Clinton” list of formerly living people and Hilary rides to victory on a wave of sympathy/anger/first woman hysteria.
Saturday update...its now 50 -42, Romney 8% ahead.
Thanks! I just posted that. Good to see Obama’s numbers tanking. Even better to see that America isn’t falling for the media’s spin on how great gay marriage is
That’s why everyone must lie to pollsters, especially the more reputable ones.
Here in my part of PA prices have moved from 4 dollars a gallon back to 3.65 or a little less in some cases.
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 see your Harriet Miers and raise you a prescription drug program and TARP.
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:
America at the Crossroads of History
LOL ...good point, dfwgator!!
Romney 50%, Obama 43%
That’s the worst I can remember for a sitting President.
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.
