  • Washington Post endorses Obama[BARF OR LAUGH ALERT?]

    The Washington Post has decided to back President Obama for reelection — acknowledging the shortcomings of his first term: President Barack Obama is better positioned to be that navigator than is his Republican challenger, former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney. We come to that judgment with eyes open to the disappointments of Mr. Obama’s first term. He did not end, as he promised he would, “our chronic avoidance of tough decisions” on fiscal matters. But Mr. Obama is committed to the only approach that can succeed: a balance of entitlement reform and revenue increases. Mr. Romney, by contrast, has embraced his...
  • Brian Williams: Obama Crowds Down To 5,000 From 50,000 In '08

    Back in 2009, Brian Williams literally bowed to Barack Obama. Today, he's telling like it is from the Obama campaign trail: the size of the crowds is way down from last time around, and the candidate is not the same man he was in '08. This is a stunning admission from a man seen as deeply in the Obama tank. Williams made his admission to Chuck Todd on today's Daily Rundown. Takeaway line: "palpably obvious to you: this is not '08. These are not the crowds, this is not the candidate." View the shocking video here.

    Former Republican Secretary of State Colin Powell endorsed President Barack Obama for a second term Thursday, telling “CBS This Morning” that he voted for Obama in 2008 but this time was going further and publicly backing him. “We’ve come out of the dive and we’re starting to gain altitude,” Powell said. “The unemployment rate is too high, people are still hurting in housing, but I see that we’re starting to rise up.” Powell said that when Obama took over “the country was in very, very difficult straits. We were in the one of the worst recessions we had seen in...

    The Democratic party likes to portray itself as seeing women as equal to men. Yet it's the Democrats who think they can woo female voters by dangling free contraceptives in front of them like a carrot luring a donkey. For months America has been hearing how it's President Barack Obama who has the estrogen vote sewn up. Now, according to a recent USA TODAY/Gallup Poll, America comes to find out that Mitt Romney is currently leading Barry the Birth Control President in the top battleground states, and the women he thought were willing to sell the country down the river...

    (Associated Posers) - Many in the Middle East believe Barack Obama failed to deliver on promises of a new U.S. approach in the region but still prefer him to presidential rival Mitt Romney, who they see as too close to Israel and too keen to project U.S. military might. Compounding the challenge, the Middle East is a region where perceptions of fading U.S. influence have been hardened by Arab uprisings that have toppled dictators who were longtime U.S. allies, bringing Islamists in their place. "I am one of those who is very much disappointed with Obama," said Hassan Nafaa a...

    President Obama will make an appeal to young Americans on Friday with a live interview airing on all of MTV's channels that comes on the heels of other efforts to reach out to younger voters, including an appearance last week on "The Daily Show." Obama set to sit down with MTV News correspondent Sway Calloway at 5 p.m. ET for a half-hour session being called "Ask Obama Live: An MTV Interview With the President." The interview will take place at the White House and viewers can submit questions online.

    Obama’s first two presidential debates with Romney gave us another look deep into his mind – into a continued confession which he simply cannot stop himself from making. From my experience as a forensic profiler, I know when a guilty person starts to break. Law enforcement describes how guilty suspects show signs of cracking during an interrogation – and they push on those weaknesses. We can view Obama’s poor performance during the first presidential debate with Romney on Oct. 3 in a similar way. The debate – a symbolic interrogation – was the first time Obama had faced tough questions...
  • On the basis of sound leadership, re-elect Obama: endorsement editorial (Cleveland Plain Dealer)

    The Cleveland Plain Dealer ^ | October 22, 2012 | The Plain Dealer Editorial Board
    Four years ago, this newspaper's editorial board enthusiastically endorsed Barack Obama, then a young senator from Illinois, for president of the United States. As much as we admired the long and courageous service of his Republican opponent, Sen. John McCain, we believed that the nation needed fresh ideas and the fresh start that a leader with Obama's charisma and only-in-America backstory could provide. Today, we recommend President Obama's re-election. He has led the nation back from the brink of depression.

    Sandra Fluke spoke to ten people in Nevada. Michelle Obama (formerly of never-been-proud-before/downright-mean-country infamy) is accusing Republicans of talking down the country. Joe Biden, in his usual adolescent fashion, is gesticulating and acting up behind the stage while others try to speak, babbling about binders and the mythical war in Iran. Bill Clinton, as is his custom, is talking nonstop and monotonously about how Barack Obama should not be blamed for not achieving the sort of economic success that he feels his own genius achieved. Our president goes from rants about Big Bird to something infantile called Romnesia — in...

We're on our fourth debate and it's been impossible to follow or post. Site begins locking up at the first mention of "gentlemen, start your engines!". The squirrels take that as a time to go on break until the debate is over. Help me, Obi-Wan Kenobi!
  • ABC, CBS and NBC Hype Romney's 'Binders' Over Biden's 'Bullets' by 11 to 1 Margin

    The Big Three networks (ABC, CBS and NBC) gave the faux furor over Mitt Romney’s “binders full of women” statement in Tuesday’s debate a whopping 22 mentions through Friday morning. Yet when Vice President Joe Biden, on Thursday, told an audience member that Republican “young guns” like Vice Presidential nominee Paul Ryan had “bullets” aimed at him the networks delivered just a scant two total mentions (on NBC and CBS, ABC skipped the gaffe entirely.) On the morning after the debate ABC’s Elizabeth Vargas, on Good Morning America, singled out the “binders” comment: “You remember the Big Bird line that...

    For some months, I have been predicting that Romney would not only win but win big. I have a number of lunches and other small wagers riding on the outcome, so I have been cheered by Team Romney’s meteoric rise in the polls recently. I understand the wisdom of Yogi Berra’s observation that it’s not over till it’s over. Harold Wilson was surely right that a week is a long time in politics. Still, while not exactly counting the chickens before they hatch, I am drawing up a menu that features poulet for the main course. I think there will...

    Bill Clinton is supposed to be the secret weapon in this race. The Oxford draft dodging grad who can appeal to working Americans because he has a Southern accent. The problem is that Bill also has a history of melting down during campaigns.Clinton’s incredible campaigning abilities have been largely overstated. Clinton won two presidential elections against ridiculously weak Republican candidates who barely showed up. That’s also how he became Governor of Arkansas. He blew the 2008 primaries and now he’s beginning to melt down all over again. “This shouldn’t be a race. The only reason it is, is because...

    The cheering midst of a rally featuring President Barack Obama and a largely college-age crowd of 15,000 on the Oval at Ohio State University would not seem a likely place to encounter those not in the presidentÂ’s corner. Yet, the first five students approached at random by a Dispatch reporter on Oct. 9 turned out to support Republican Mitt Romney and his aspirations of replacing Obama in the White House. The must-vote adoration and enthusiasm for Obama isnÂ’t what it once was among 18- to 29-year-old Millennials in central Ohio, a must-win area in a must-win state for presidential hopefuls....

    Roughly 5 percent of respondents in Reuters/Ipsos polls said they chose the Republican contender in 2008 and will switch to Obama in 2012. Who are these defectors? The McCain-to-Obama switchers are 55 percent male, and 34 percent of them are 55 or older. (Overall, Obama trails Romney 34 percent to 52 percent among white men over 50.) About 72 percent of them are white. They are largely from the East Coast; nearly 4 in 10 live in the mid- or South Atlantic. Nearly 3 in 10 finished their education after high school, and nearly 2 in 10 have a bachelor's...

    The Obama re-election campaign has accepted at least one foreign donation in violation of the law — and does nothing to check on the provenance of millions of dollars in other contributions, a watchdog group alleges. Chris Walker, a British citizen who lives outside London, told The Post he was able to make two $5 donations to President Obama’s campaign this month through its Web site while a similar attempt to give Mitt Romney cash was rejected. It is illegal to knowingly solicit or accept money from foreign citizens. Walker said he used his actual street address in England but...

    Comedian Paul Rodriguez is not joking. The man who made his mark in Hollywood finding humor in just about everything is – in a deadly serious way -- hitting back at fellow Latino celebrities Eva Longoria and Rosie Perez for their recent biting jabs at Mitt Romney. "When it gets personal, like they did, it goes below the belt,” he said. Rodriguez is featured in a new Latino-targeted ad for Romney, whom he is supporting after what he says is disappointment over President Obama. Rodriguez says he’d been a lifelong Democrat and voted for Obama in 2008. Longoria drew fire...
