“The final straw for my boss, who has been a local Rat office holder, was Obama coming out for gay marriage. He's not the only one, and I don't understand how Obama could’ve done something so incredibly stupid now.”

It really looks as if something unsavory about Obama’s past is about to come out. Recall when the Monica scandal was brewing, Bill and Hillary ‘danced’ on the beach w’out music? They were trying to get out in front of bad news.

We've seen a lot more ‘Obama dancing’ lately than we ever saw w Bill and Hill. The whole girlfriends/’love’ letters thing is so odd in its timing. Why now? And why, as you asked, gay marriage now, of all times?

My personal theory is that they are desperate to drop Slow Joe from the ticket, but Biden isn't cooperating. Not only that, but he's signaled he's ready to spill the beans if he's forced out. So O’s team is trying frantically to gauge how disastrous (or not) it would be if Obama simply came out as bisexual. So far, it's not looking good.

I can't prove the above theory, but it sure makes sense to me. Obama’s fading in the polls, and one of the few game-changers in his shrinking arsenal would be to retire Slow Joe and put a more dynamic, inspiring person in the slot. Joe wants the job, though, and absolutely refuses to go quietly [again, my theory—but there are indications it's true]. Evidently Joe saw or heard something that gives him leverage, and he's tacitly signaled he'll use it if need be.

The question for Obama and Axelrod has become, ‘Do we gain more by kicking Biden off and weathering his back-channel revelations, or by continuing the status quo, in which Obama slowly, very slowly sinks a little more each mo?’

It's not going to be an easy decision—but it will be interesting to watch it play out.

I think 0mugabe didn’t even eat dogs. I think Ayers made it up to make him sound exotic and third world, and to rub out noses in it. Indonesia is a Muslim country and Muslims don’t eat dogs; probably it’s done some places in Indonesia, but not commonly (read that on FR some where). In other SE Asian countries like the PI, it is much more common.

“I’m not a Romney fan, but I’m betting he’ll attack Baraq far more vigorously than McLame or Hildabeast ever did.”

I am hoping and counting on him doing just that.

One thing I always said about Romney during the debates was, I liked his focus on Obama as the enemy.

Since his presumed nomination, he’s weathered “dog abuse” and “schoolmate abuse” excellently; he has not lain down and died.

“The past two days are the first time that Romney has reached 50% against Obama since Rasmussen started polling the general election. IMHO, it’s not because of what Romney’s doing.”

I tend to guess that it’s because it’s become the consensus that Romney is the nominee. So, people being polled are having to decide, which one will I vote for. It’s between two men now (effectively - I know there are third party candidates).

They are breaking for Romney.

This is the initial run of my Rasmussen state-by-state presidential model.

The model begins with the final results of the 2008 election, and will update those results with current Rasmussen state polls as they are published.

I'll begin by listing the states that have recent polls, and then list the states that are still within the margin-of- error.

Final 2008 Electoral College results were Obama 365, McCain 173. My model begins with Obama 364, McCain 174, due to not handling the few split-win states.

Furthermore, 2010 apportionment favored Republicans, leaving us with a starting point of Obama 358, Romney 180.

Below are the first round of state polls. The first number is the change in GOP result from the last poll, and the second number is the separation from Obama's result. "No Poll" means the state's final 2008 vote is within the default margin of error (4.5%).

Watch List:

Using the most recent Rasmussen polls, the results of 32,000 simulated elections are listed in the table below. The definitions of the columns are:

Week GOP
Electoral
College
P10
GOP
Electoral
College
EV
GOP
Electoral
College
P90
Probability
of 270
2008 Election 180 180 180 0.00%
11-May-12 193 220.73 248 0.16%

Graphs and maps to come later.

That is, after a three year plus adventure into the weirdness of ultra leftwing kultursmog, led by strange, unknown and ominous people with alien ideas and ideologies, Romney looks and sounds positively normal. A reassuringly normal American.

That sounds plausible. Also, it's very funny. Michelle's great plan to have Ayers ghostwrite Obama’s ‘memoirs’ blows up like yet another in a long line of exploding cigars. Ayers liked the dogmeat story, and now Barry is stuck w it. What's the alternative? Admit he not only didn't write it—he probably didn't even proof it. Now whenever he mentions Seamus the Irish Setter, a photoshop of Obama eating a Daschund will automatically pop up. Poetic justice.

Obama/Biden’s suckup to gays helped rocket Romney’s numbers into the stratopshere.

So I guess Michele O’s plans to solidify the gay vote by French-kissing Ellen DeGenerate on broadcast TV have been cancelled.

Barry burned up his entire advance from the first publishing co. that wanted his...ahem, ‘memoirs’, on the Bali jaunt. When nothing happened, the publishing co. wrote the non-negligeable advance off as a dead loss [guess it’s unPC to sue an aspiring author of color] and Barry’s agent hit up a different publishing co. With the second advance dwindling and Barry unable to produce a coherent sentence, Michelle gathered all his notes and recordings and dumped them on Ayers. Saved Little Barry’s bacon...but earned them an icky dogmeat story in the process.

[All this comes from a friendly biography—the same one that details Obama’s prejudice against traditional marriage. He just wanted to shack up, but Michelle insisted on a ring. The book is Barack and Michelle, Portrait of an American Marriage, by Christopher Anderson. It also details the couple’s rocky marriage, and how Michelle nearly walked out on Barack for good.]

Well like you I read about it in the past, so I’m reciting the info mostly from memory. I believe what happened was Michelle urged Barack to give all his notes and recordings to Ayers, and Barry complied. Iow, Michelle was the catalyst, but she didn’t do it behind Obama’s back.

So typical of President Goof Off. Also typical is the way he brags about having really written the book. He no doubt believes he did: i.e.: that all Ayers did was organize his notes. Obama is a sick, perverse and repugnant individual. Happily, it looks like Nov. will be his Waterloo.

And to prop up his run for President they desperately needed a backstory, a “life”, otherwise he’d be nothing but a shadow. Aside from everything else you wrote, he’s also stupid and no doubt mentally impaired from drugs. The idiot can’t think straight or speak straigh or keep track of things like how to pronounce “corps” or how many states there are. In addition to being a psychopathic liar, and...and... etc.

Maybe he’s getting AIDS dementia, too.

When you can tell me Romney's a Communist who thinks live babies should be slaughtered, the military should be abused, capitalism destroyed, race wars renewed, terrorists coddled and rewarded, our enemies encouraged and our allies slapped in the face.... get back to me.

Until that happens, saying that he's as bad as Obama goes beyond absurd.

On second thought, getting back to me isn't necessary. There is no argument to support your initial comments, so it shouldn't be dignified with any further discussion.

He waffles about his positions but he’s said and done enough over the years:

Pro-”choice”
Pro-fag marriage
Pro-fag adoption
Most of the judges he appointed in MASS were Dems and liberals with a sprinkling of RINOS
Invented Romney care which was used as a template for 0bama care -in fact, the same people who put it together helped put 0bama care together.

And a lot, lot more.

So he’s white and not a black racist or Muslim. So that counts for something. If he becomes the candidate the GOP slogan should be “Vote For Romney - He sucks just a tad less than 0bama”.

You've been given a long, long list of reasons your argument is off base, jeremiah.

You can say 'pro-fag' all day long, but you have no factual argument for saying the two candidates are the same.

They are, in no way 'the same.'

That's why Santorum has endorsed him, and Newt Gingrich is campaigning for him in Georgia.

Because as distasteful as Romney may be for us conservatives, he is NOT the same, and any argument saying they are is dishonest.

Amen to Obama’s sub-par intelligence. I’m so glad fewer and fewer people are buying the liberal meme of Little Barry’s superior intellect. There is not a shred of evidence to support it. He’s cunning when it comes to exploiting his skin color, but even then he only succeeds because of the age we live in. A couple of generations ago he’d have been a total loser. Since PC came to rule Academia, the MSM and government, Obama found his niche.

Actually it was Slow Joe (go figure) whom made Bambi play his hand, and I’m sure it wasn't a set up by Joe, he just screwed up as usual. Carney took a beating the next day, it was hilarious watching him tap dance in the Press room. Even the Left Winger Press was pushing the buttons.

Bambi had to come out.

. . .I don't see how Wisconsin would not be in play for the Presidential race. . .

It is. The Obama lead in the Rasmussen state poll is equal to the margin of error. And probably straight racial politics accounts for the difference -- black folks and guilty white "moderates" who responded "undecided" on the statewide races and picked Obama (black unemployment statistics be damned) on the basis of skin color alone.

Indonesia during 0bama was growing up was very different from today's Indonesia. At the time, people of different religious backgrounds would celebrate Christmas, Ied'l Fitr, etc., together. Muslim parents sent their children to Catholic schools (who provided better quality education). Friends would share and try foods their own family wouldn't cook. It's part of their syncretic cultures.

Dogs were (and still are) eaten by several ethnicities in Indonesia, notably the Bataks and Manadonese who are predominantly Christians. It's not uncommon that their Muslim friends shared meals and sometimes alcoholic drinks together. Note that I'm referring to late 1960s and early 1970s, not today's Indonesia.
