    Here is the full equation: early voting + bribes* + Dems busing their bribees to vote early Obama victory * bribes = (1) Obama's unconstitutional gift to 800,000 illegal immigrants last June (2) beer & pizza parties on college campuses + rides to the polls (3) the usual Dem GOTV "walking around money" that gets spread around in urban areas every election

    A group of Republican senators said Monday that thousands of voter ballots are unlikely to reach military service members until after Nov. 6. One day ahead of the election, Sens. John Cornyn (R-Texas), Kelly Ayotte (R-N.H.), John McCain (R-Ariz.), Rob Portman (R-Ohio) and Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) sent a letter to Defense Secretary Leon Panetta to express their concern over delays in ballots reaching military voters overseas. We write to express concerns over another serious failure by the Department of Defense (DoD) to safeguard the voting rights of our overseas military service members, which we believe could result in the imminent...

    With Election Day only four days off, the Justice Department is planning to send 780 observers to polls in 23 states including Texas, California and New York. DOJ lawyers and other employees will monitor voting in Harris, Fort Bend, Dallas and Jefferson Counties in Texas; Alameda and Riverside Counties in California; and Orange County in New York. The Justice Department observers will join a growing throng of lawyers and poll watchers sent by the presidential candidates as well as state and local candidates.

    LIMA, Ohio--Speaking to reporters here on Friday after a full day of passionate campaign speeches from President Barack Obama, senior adviser David Axelrod said that Obama's enthusiasm "is coming from his loins. "I've never seen him more exhilarated than he is right now. He believes in what he's doing. He believes in what he's fighting for. You can see in the speech that he's delivering that this is coming from his loins. I just wanted to say loins," Axelrod added with a smile. "I wanted to see if I can get loins in the story."

    Two recent ads illustrate the great cultural divide in this nation and which parties and presidential candidates represent these competing worldviews. In the handling of the economy and national security, President Obama has shown he's not capable of being the adult in the room. After four years of perpetual campaigning and cheerleading for his pet projects, he still isn't prepared to deal soberly with the consequences of his ideological indulgences. His community organizing fantasy has been to remake America in his more socialistic image, and in the process, he's taken the nation dangerously close to financial ruin. Yet like the...

    Sen. Jon Tester, a liberal Democrat, is attempting to hold off Republican challenger Rep. Denny Rehberg in a tight Montana Senate race. Rehberg is a Power Line Pick Six candidate. For Republicans to gain control of the Senate, they almost certainly need to win this race. Tester has been highly unconvincing in his belated attempts to convince Montana voters that he’s not in the pocket of the Obama administration on all the big issues. In a two way race with Rehberg, Tester would likely be toast. However, there’s a third candidate in Montana — Dan Cox of the Libertarian Party....

    Soon will come the finger-pointing. Liberals will gnash their teeth, pull their hair and recriminate. Yes; true, this is normal behavior on the part of liberals. But this time the behavior will be uproarious and hilarious. Because this time, the folks who brought us Occupy Wall Street won’t be in a drum circle, but in a circular firing squad facing their comrades, their righteous fingers loaded and looking for blame.“Oh, Chicago!” they’ll say. “Bang, bang.”   Sure, there will be the typical liberal shots at the “racists” on the right who denied Obama a second term.But the delicious irony lost on...
  • Children blame ‘Mom and Dad’ for electing Mitt, sing about Romney letting sick people ‘just die’

    A new video from the founders of a celebrated advertising agency features children “of the future” singing about the aftermath of a Mitt Romney presidency: A world where sick people are required to “just die,” the atmosphere is “frying,” gays can be “fixed” and “oil fills the sea.” The children, who stare blankly at the camera throughout the video, even take pains to explicitly mention that they blame “mom and dad” for all those horrors. The video — produced by the founders of the advertising agency Goodby Silverstein & Partners, which came up with the famous tagline “Got milk?” and...

Speaking on CNN's State of the Union, David Axelrod said that recent polls of the race that show Romney with an edge nationally, buoyed by a higher percentage of Americans who believe the Republican nominee would better handle the economy, contradicted what the president’s team is seeing on the ground. "In that particular poll, Candy, that may be the case, but in...

    I’m not gonna lie. I laughed at the new Lena Dunham(who?) ad for Obama. I love comedy and her delivery was perfect. And really, it was a perfect ad. It was the perfect ad to sum up the entirety of Obama campaign platform: vaginas. Last October Republicans were shocked and perplexed when objective professional journalist George Stephanopolous asked then primary candidate Mitt Romney a question about banning birth control during one of the primary debates. It was an odd question and seemingly came out of nowhere. It rocked Romney back on his feet for a minute as he tried to...

    I was on a conference call yesterday regarding intelligence gathered from a highly placed source that liberal Obama surrogates are planning to target Evangelical mega-church parking lots with bigoted anti-Mormon flyers the final weekend before the election in key battleground states like Ohio, Iowa, and Wisconsin. Mega-church pastors are being notified to have parking lot attendants be on the lookout for such a lit drop. But please forward this post to all pastors of both Protestant and Catholic churches, particularly in battleground states. It may surprise you to learn that most of anti-Mormonism is on the LEFT, not the Right....

    Thursday brought a lot of good news for Mitt Romney’s campaign. National polls continue to move in his direction, with poll results starting to take into account the first day of polling after Tuesday night’s debate (though obviously we’ll need several more days of polling to see how the event affected the race). In Ohio, which could determine the outcome of the election, CNN reports that Republicans are significantly improving in early voting from four years ago, a key to winning the state. And the Romney campaign is so confident of victory in North Carolina (which Obama won last time)...

    With new poll numbers showing his support receding among the women voters who had for so long been the anchor of his base, President Obama enters tonight's town hall-style debate with Republican challenger Mitt Romney at a campaign crossroads. Romney has made steady gains in the polls since his decisive performance during the candidates' Oct. 3 meeting in Denver, Colo. A USA Today-Gallup survey released Monday showed Obama and Romney tied at 48 percent among women "likely" to vote in battleground states. Those figures echo the results of a Pew poll, published last week, that found Obama had fumbled an...

Joel Benenson says this result "is an extreme outlier, defying the trends seen in every other battleground and national poll." Benenson argues that Obama remains ahead among women.

    DENVER – Mitt Romney has flipped the script. Not only is the Republican presidential candidate, after a brutal month following the conventions, getting a significant bounce following his strong performance in last week’s debate, but Romney is also now the candidate articulating a more inspirational, positive vision for the country’s future (even if he is quoting regularly from the show, “Friday Night Lights”). President Barack Obama, meanwhile, who’d benefited all summer from offering a more optimistic vision that contrasted with Romney’s negative assessment of the country’s economic situation, now seems to be going small.

    House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif) contends that Republicans are “poisoning the debate” and “suffocating the issues under a barrage of facts and statistics.” “All we are hearing from them is negativity,” Pelosi complained. “They say the economy is faltering, too many people are unemployed, taxes are too high, foreign policy is a shambles—just one unpleasant fact after another. This doesn’t lift up the country. It doesn’t boost morale.” The Congresswoman contrasted the GOP’s negativity with the Democrats’ message of “hope and change.” “Everyday, the President is out there trying to take people’s minds off their troubles,” she said. “He...

"I strongly endorse symbolic gestures toward groups," wrote Buchanan, "especially the blacks where symbols count for so much." In order to divide the country effectively, Nixon had to pretend that he wasn't dividing...
  • Obama Administration to Defense Contractors: No Layoff Notices Until After Election, Please

    In an effort to make the economy look a little rosier than it is, the Obama administration is basically coercing defense contractors so as to prevent news of layoffs hitting voters before the election. With sequestration about to result in some major cuts to the defense budget, contractors will lose government business -- and that means, employees will lose jobs. But to prevent poor numbers ahead of the November election, the Obama administration has made it very, well, fiscally unwise for companies to issue layoff notices too early. The Labor Department issued guidance in July saying it would be “inappropriate”...

    NEW YORK (CNNMoney) -- The White House on Friday told government contractors worried about fiscal cliff spending cuts to hold off on warning employees about possible layoffs. The government said it would cover legal costs if contractors are forced to slash their payrolls because of the looming $109 billion in automatic cuts next year and are alleged to have violated the WARN Act. .... Defense contractors in particular have warned for months that the upcoming sequester would cost jobs in their industry. And Lockheed Martin's CEO has said publicly he may be forced to issue notice this fall of possible...

    Throughout this election cycle, I have often wondered how it could be as close as it seems to be. Looking at the record of President Obama, which he can not run on, I have often marveled that he would even attempt to run for reelection, given at the dismal failure he has been. But, of course, he doesn't seem himself as a dismal failure and tells us he needs more time to make the changes he wants to make to America. And why wouldn't he run, given that he has the media in his back pocket. They consistently run interference...

According to Ad Week, the Obama campaign had teamed up with Electronic Arts again to run ads on their video games in hotly-contested states leading up to Election Day. The campaign first did this in 2008. “It was made clear in the last election that reaching consumers through video games makes a significant impact, so it’s no surprise to see this tactic used once again in such a competitive election,” Dave Madden, EA’s senior vice president of global media solutions, told ad week.

Romney has people like the Koch brothers and Sheldon Adelson ready to spend “whatever” is necessary to win. Obama burned through $120 million attacking Romney.

How about “tax returns” “he’s a felon” or “off shore bank accounts” – not one of those words and phrases laid a glove on Romney – and Obama can’t get that $120 million back. Here are the facts.
