  • PPP (D) Poll: Romney Surges to Gain Lead in Florida

    10/14/2012 10:37:07 PM PDT · by Arthurio · 7 replies
    A new PPP poll in Florida underscores the huge surge Mitt Romney has made in just a week since his widely acknowledgd debate win over President Barack Obama. Romney gained 5 points over the last three weeks and now leads President Obama 49-48, after trailing 50-46 in late September, the Tampa Bay Times reported Sunday. "The shift in the race is largely attributable to independent voters shifting their preferences. Where before Obama had a 51-40 advantage with them, now Romney's taken the lead by a 51/43 spread. When it comes to the biggest issue in the election, the economy, Romney's...

    Freedom Outpost ^ | 10/13/12 | Tim Brown
    I’ve not heard so much talk about Big Bird and Sesame Street since I was six years old! Ever since the first presidential debate this year, when Mitt Romney mentioned Big Bird, with reference to his desire to pull funding for PBS, something about the big yellow bird has been in the news on a daily basis. Now it looks like some “bird brain” has come up with a wacky idea to march on Washington, D.C., in support of Big Bird, on November 3, just three days before the election. Though Romney’s call for stripping subsidizing of PBS only really...

    The psychology of propaganda is very clever. Think about what makes you want to do something or buy something. And think about the psychology of people who want to make themselves feel good about something. What makes a person feel good? And if doing that something is running around telling everyone to buy a smaller house on a smaller lot, get out of their cars, or cut their heat down, what made them feel good about that? If someone feels good about the 1.5 gallon toilet they own that needs flushing 2 or 3 times, do they can go about...

    The European Commission’s representative on the troika, Istvan Szekely, has denied that there is a “democratic deficit” in the Republic as the result of the conditions attached to the its bailout program. “The program’s main goal is to restore confidence in policies and help get Ireland get back on its feet so it can get financing on its own from the markets,” Szekely told a summit on leadership organized by employers’ group IBEC. “It is important to point out this conditionality is negotiated with the Government,” he said. “There is no democratic deficit here.” …

  • Born again Bond: In the new film 007 dies then comes miraculously back to life.

    To countless men like me who are still schoolboys at heart — and to countless women for whom Daniel Craig’s craggy good looks are cinematic catnip — the universally ecstatic reviews of the new James Bond film make almost shamefully pleasurable reading. After 50 years, in which the movies have often descended to abject self-parody, Bond is a hero who should, by rights, have long ago shuffled off to the retirement home. Instead, as Mail film critic Christopher Tookey wrote in later editions of Saturday’s paper, the new 007 adventure, Skyfall, is ‘one of the finest of all time’.

    Presidential Contest Tight Nationally Ahead Of Second Debate Dan Balz and Jon Cohen October 14 On the eve of their second debate, President Obama and challenger Mitt Romney remain locked in a virtual dead heat nationally, with Republicans showing increased enthusiasm for their nominee after his big win in the first debate, according to a new Washington Post-ABC News poll. Likely voters in the new poll split 49 percent for Obama to 46 percent for Romney, basically unmoved from the poll two weeks ago, just before the two candidates met in Denver for their first debate. On topic after topic,...
  • How Obama Gave The Campaign Back To Romney (Lefty meltdown; Biden didn't help)

    10/14/2012 10:00:13 PM PDT · by TigerClaws · 21 replies
    If anyone thought that the feisty Biden debate undid the massive damage the president did to himself in the first debate, the news isn't great. Biden does seem to have reversed the speed of Obama's free-fall but not the decline itself. Romney's debate obliteration of Obama - something that, in my view, irreparably damages a sitting president - does not seem to be a bounce, but a resilient jump. It's not going away by itself. That is: not a bounce. And if you were a low-information voter and watched the first debate with one man with energy and ideas (however...

    Rising enthusiasm and declining anxiety mark an energy boost among Mitt Romney’s supporters since he prevailed in the first presidential debate. But a persistent sense he’d favor the wealthy, combined with easing discontent with the nation’s direction, provide a retort for President Obama, raising the stakes for their second showdown this week. Romney now numerically leads Obama in strong enthusiasm and trails him in anxiety among potential voters, both firsts this season. At the same time, the number of registered voters in the latest ABC News/Washington Post poll who say the country is headed seriously off on the wrong track...

    Daily Telegraph (UK) ^ | 12:34AM BST 15 Oct 2012 | Julian Ryall
    The larger-than-life portraits of Lenin and Karl Marx that once dominated Kim Il-sung Square have been removed, suggesting a change of direction within North Korea. The NKNews web site, which monitors developments in the secretive state, has reported that the austere images of two of the founding fathers of communism were first taken down in the summer but have never been replaced. Lenin and Marx had glared out over the square—used for military march-pasts and mass rallies in support of the regime—for decades, despite the Workers' Party of Korea revising its charter in 1980 to replace their concepts with those...

Help me convince her with some good FReeper common sense and humour, and I'll show her this thread later. P.S.

    The goodnight kiss is a thing of the past and most of us sleep with our backs turned to our partner, according to a new study. The research into our nocturnal habits suggests romance is now dead in British bedrooms. Indeed, a quarter of lovers say they cannot bear their partner touching them while they are sleeping. The sleep behavior study found that 54 percent of Brits choose to turn away and sleep with their back to their lover in a bid to get a good night's sleep. And it isn't just cuddling that's off the agenda as 90 percent...

    In a rare example of political unity, both the Romney and the Obama campaigns have expressed concern to the Commission on Presidential Debates about how the moderator of the Tuesday town hall has publicly described her role, TIME has learned. While an early October memorandum of understanding between the Obama and Romney campaigns and the bipartisan commission sponsoring the debates suggests CNN‘s Candy Crowley would play a limited role in the Tuesday night session, Crowley, who is not a party to that agreement, has done a series of interviews on her network in which she has suggested she will assume...

    When a politician is in trouble, he usually falls back on what he knows best -- the world he saw around him when he entered into political awareness as a young adult. That's what seems to have happened to the Democratic ticket after Barack Obama's disastrous performance in the Denver debate Oct. 3. So Obama on the campaign trail and Joe Biden in the vice presidential debate fell back on what they know from their formative political years. At least that's the best explanation I can come up with for the Obama campaign's obsession with Big Bird. On the campaign...

She went to two nearby Houston Police Department stations, but was directed to the traffic division downtown. After a supervisor spoke with her and the officer, the two extra violations were removed. She still must go to court later this month for driving 5 miles-per-hour over the limit. But Simmons, a...

    LEBANON, Ohio -- Just two weeks ago, Republicans here in Ohio, even in GOP stronghold Warren County, were filled with anxiety and doubt. Poll after poll showed President Obama widening his lead over Mitt Romney in this crucial battleground state. Republicans didn't know whether to believe the polls -- many didn't -- or admit their man was faltering in a nearly must-win state. Either way, it was a frustrating situation. No longer. In the wake of Romney's decisive victory over Obama in the first presidential debate October 3, the campaign's trajectory here in Ohio is up, up, up. Not just...
