  • Had Enough of Broken Promises?

    10/08/2012 5:57:26 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 7 replies ^ | October 8, 2012 | Terry Paulson
    After watching the first debate, I refuse to believe that American voters will choose an encore for Obama's version of "hope and change." Regardless of his new campaign promises, Romney reminded us of Obama's failed trickle-down-government and his string of broken promises. Here are ten reasons that it's time for a change in Washington. 1. He said, "I am pledging to cut the deficit we inherited by half by the end of my first term in office." Instead the deficit has increased by over $5.3 trillion and keeps on growing! 2. He said, "Transparency and the rule of law will...

    There is increasing evidence that the Obama administration has been less than forthcoming about what they knew about the security situation in Libya. According to several reports, not only did the Obama administration ignore concerns that were brought to their attention about increased terrorist activity in Libya, they reacted completely opposite of how we might expect our government to react, given the information they were given. Instead of increasing security, they decreased the number of security personnel. This, according to what Lt. Col. Andy Wood is expected to tell the House Oversight Committee. (Breitbart) Lt. Col Andy Wood will go...

    Note: The author would like to thank the Psalmist, Switchfoot, and Samwise for inspiring this column.Back in May of 1999, I made a decision to leave the Democratic Party. It was an easy decision. I had been a Democrat for 11 years. I voted for Dukakis when I was a committed leftist. But, later, when I became a pro-life conservative, there was no room for me in the party. So I became a Republican and also joined the NRA. I've been a straight shooter ever since. Excuse me if that last line sounded heterosexist. I’m a work in regress. As...
  • Why the Obama Bubble Still Hasn’t Burst

    10/08/2012 3:21:44 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 27 replies ^ | October 8, 2012 | Star Parker
    Can there be political bubbles like financial bubbles? Financial bubbles, inflated by hopes and dreams, burst when reality negates any possibility that those hopes and dreams will be realized. At that point, sky high stock or bond or real estate prices come crashing down to earth. Can the same thing happen in politics? Can a skilled politician, who has become popular with soaring rhetoric and promises, deflate when it starts becoming clear that he is not going to deliver? Of course, I am thinking about our president. Mitt Romney demonstrated in the first presidential debate that the considerable gap between...

    Attending a star-studded concert that included the likes of Katy Perry and Stevie Wonder where money was raised money for his campaign, President Obama said "everybody here is incredible professionals, they're such great friends and they just perform flawlessly, night after night." "I can't always say the same," the President said to laughter from the crowd at the Nokia Theater in Los Angeles.

    Neil Munro of the Daily Caller was attacked by journalists for asking President Obama a question out of turn -- because Obama wasn't offering a turn. He expects to speak without taking questions. On Thursday, Munro once again found himself surrounded by amateur Obama advisers thinly disguised as objective journalists after Obama lost the debate in Denver. Munro noted several reporters on the 11:15 a.m. phone conference promptly offered questions that bordered on advice. "Axe, I'm not sure you can hear me, David," said NBC's Andrea Mitchell,  "I'm wondering whether the president, whether you have rethought the strategy of not...

    NewsBusters ^ | October 7, 2012 | P.J. Gladnick
    One of the reasons why liberals were so shocked by President Obama's disastrous performance in last Wednesday's presidential debate is that it ran completely counter to what they expected based on one of their most important fictional experiences. And that fictional experience was when "President" Jed Bartlet wiped the floor of his Republican challenger Ritchie ("richie" get it?) during a "West Wing" debate episode. You can see Bartlet destroying Ritchie as completely scripted by Aaron Sorkin in his liberal fantasy below the fold. Since that fictitious debate has served as a liberal reference point as to how debates between a...

    Since last week, the news sphere has been buzzing about the possibility of an Obama campaign foreign donor scandal being the big October surprise of 2012. Since the Washington Examiner first reported the story last week, many are asking how the Obama campaign will handle foreign donation allegations expected to go public Monday in a major magazine and national website story. The Obama campaign has already tried to block the story from publication and although the details of the scandal are still under wraps, we do know taxes and unsecured credit card transactions are about to cause a major headache...

    One of the strongest elements of Mitt Romney's spectacular debate performance was his decisive rejoinder to the president's oft-repeated allegation that the Republican plans to raise taxes on middle class families.  Obama said Romney has designs on an unpaid-for $5 trillion tax cut that would eventually necessitate higher tax bills for average Americans.  Romney flatly rejected the claim by calling it false, then explained what he actually has in mind.  But the president returned to the "$5 trillion" well on several subsequent occasions, prompting more rebuttals from his challenger. and CNN reviewed Obama's accusation, and found it wanting.  "Not...

UPDATE - Rasmussen's Saturday tracker shows a four-point bounce for Romney, who now leads 49-47 among likely voters nationwide.  The better news?  Only 2/3 of that rolling poll was taken after the debate, so he has room to expand his advantage.

    A former CIA operative and spy in Iran’s Revolutionary Guard is reporting that a deal has been struck between Barack Obama and Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei. According to Reza Kahlili, “Iran could announce a temporary halt to uranium enrichment before next month’s U.S. election in a move to save Barack Obama’s presidency.” (1) Kahlili’s source for this story reports that a 3 member team of negotiators representing President Obama met this week with a Khamenei representative in Qatar. They asked that the Iranian leader “…announce a halt to enrichment, even if temporary, before the Nov. 6 election.” In...

    To hear the Obama campaign tell the story, VP candidate Paul Ryan got a real earful at one of his own events this past week. An Iowa woman chimed in with a question for the candidate which she felt deserved an answer. At the town hall event on Tuesday, [Linda] Morrison cited a contentious exchange between Ryan and Fox News anchor Chris Wallace on Sunday, in which Ryan said it would take too long to explain the details of his tax plan. She asked the vice presidential candidate why he wasn’t more specific, and why he “didn’t answer his question...
  • The Denver Debate: A Second Look

    The first presidential debate of 2012 is now behind us. And Republican challenger Mitt Romney won it handily. No one challenges this verdict. Even President Obama’s most ardent supporters concede it by way of the truly laughable excuses to which they’ve resorted in accounting for the decisive drubbing that their candidate received. But while the conventional wisdom concerning the victor is sound enough, the conventional wisdom concerning the debate’s loser is not so much. Obama, we are told, was “off his game.” From Denver’s altitude to personal family issues, every conceivable rationale has been offered by the President’s admirers to...

    I'm trying to wrap my mind around this but it is being said that Obama MUST go on the offensive and be aggressive in the next debate. But how can he do this since the theme of the debate is foreign policy and he will have to answer questions (which he has so far refused to answer) about the debacle in the Middle East, specifically the storming of the U.S. Embassy in Cairo and the death of the U.S. Ambassador in Libya? How can he justify clinging for long to the false excuse that the death of the Ambassador to...
  • Mitt Romney: Born Again

    He tried ignoring his base in the primary when it was rallying behind marriage in North Carolina and rallying behind Chick-fil-a when it was under attack, and that didn’t work. Then he tried just scaring people into voting against Obama, and that didn’t work. Finally, Mitt Romney tried conservatism at Wednesday night’s debate—and that did. The result was Romney – that’s right, the guy that was once named the No.8 RINO in the country by Human Events – provided the country the most teachable moment on the differences between Republicans and Democrats in a presidential election since before Al Gore...
  • To Understand the Democratic Party’s Re-definition of Marriage - Follow the Money!

    Our country made history in 2008 when we elected our first black president. The 2012 election is already historic as well, but for a much less promising reason. This year marks the first time in history that a major political party has put the redefinition of marriage into its national platform. The obvious question for many of my friends was, "Why are they in such a hurry?" If their victory is so inevitable, as they always tell the mainstream media; if the next generation is as likely to fall into their grasp as they think; why don’t they just trust...

    Editor's Note: This column was coauthored by Bob Morrison. You know that Gov. Romney won Wednesday night's rumble in the Rockies. That's because Al Gore was out quick blaming the president's lackluster performance on--what else?--climate change. And if you have any doubts who won, you have only to consult MSNBC's Amen Corner. Chris Matthews normally feels a tingle go up his leg when President Obama speaks. Last night, he felt something else go down his leg. Fortunately, it didn't show. But the lamentations on the left were loud. MSNBC's panel sounded like the Wailing Wall. Well, at least they got...

    Steven Birn Speaks ^ | 10/05/12 | Steven Birn
    The media will no doubt trumpet the new 7.8% unemployment rate as evidence that Obama’s policies are working. Unfortunately the new 7.8% figure is a political fraud. The numbers don’t add up. The government claims 114,000 jobs were added last month, which isn’t all that great of a number. This resulted in a 0.3% drop in unemployment? That isn’t believable in the least. The ranks of the unemployed decreased by 456,000 last month. Well wait a minute, how does that figure decrease by so much when only 114,000 new jobs were created? The government is tossing 340,000+ people out of...

    You know there's trouble on the left when the MSNBC people declare Mitt Romney the winner in the first presidential debate. I mean, there was wailing and gnashing of teeth on the uber-liberal cable network: Why, oh, why did our guy look so awkward? Even though we don't believe in God, we'd now like him to help our president if he can. Gov. Romney won the debate because the economy is bad and the president could not explain how he's going to make it better. The governor kept pounding President Barack Obama in the midsection, pointing out that his vision...

    By the time of Thursday night's debate between Vice President Biden and Congressman Ryan, the polls will reflect the early consequences of President Obama's disastrous debate performance from Wednesday night. Mitt Romney had a superb night and the contrast between his calm and in-command performance and that of a flailing, rambling president could not have been sharper, and indeed it could not have been more disorienting for the Chicago Gang running the president's re-election campaign. The day after the president's face-plant in front of 67 million viewers, the geniuses behind the nation's dismal economy instructed the president to go ugly,...
