    Former President Bill Clinton's speech was the highlight of the Democratic Party convention — overshadowing President Obama's own acceptance speech, according to a new poll. A new Pew survey finds that 29 percent of those who watched some of the coverage named Clinton's speech as the highlight. Obama's speech drew 16 percent of the plaudits, and first lady Michelle Obama's speech was the highlight for 15 percent of respondents. Obama's speech was also rated lower than his 2008 acceptance speech. According to Pew, 42 percent of watchers rated Obama's speech as excellent in 2008. This year, only 29 percent rated...

    “We’re doomed,” Limbaugh said this afternoon on his top-rated talk show. “If Obama’s re-elected, it will happen. There’s no IF about this. And it’s gonna be ugly. It’s gonna be gut-wrenching, but it will happen. The country’s economy is going to collapse if Obama is re-elected. I don’t know how long: a year and a half, two years, three years.” Limbaugh is expecting California to go belly up first, setting off a chain of financial calamities. “California is going to declare bankruptcy and you know what Obama will do? He’ll go to states like Texas or Arizona, Florida to bail...

    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: My question is, why is Obama still campaigning? Could somebody explain that to me. Everywhere I look, this election's over. Why, Obama has hit 50% approval in the polls now for the first time ever. The bounce out of that disaster of a convention was unprecedented, other than Dukakis who had a 17-point lead after his, and somehow he lost. Brit Hume said today on Fox, "Well, you know, you gotta keep in mind the guy leading in the polls in mid-September rarely loses." Ever heard of Dukakis? Ever heard of Jimmy Carter? And now Public Policy...

    CHARLOTTE - Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chairman John Kerry (D-MA) will lacerate Mitt Romney on foreign policy in a major speech tonight at the Democratic National Convention. "In this campaign, we have a fundamental choice," Kerry will say, according to speech excerpts provided to The Cable. "Will we protect our country and our allies, advance our interests and ideals, do battle where we must, and make peace where we can? Or will we entrust our place in the world to someone who just hasn't learned the lessons of the last decade?"

    NY Post ^ | 9/2/12 | Edward Klein
    The Obama campaign has insisted on seeing the speech before Clinton delivers it, and Clinton has just as insistently refused to show it to them. As a result, no one — not even the president — knows what Clinton intends to say. This has led some Democratic insiders to speculate that Clinton will make not-so-flattering remarks about the last four years of Democratic rule in the White House.

    A group of black pastors in Virginia held a meeting to discuss how to encourage their congregations to vote for President Barack Obama. Around two dozen clergy from various churches in the area met for two hours on Saturday in Chesapeake, discussing possible ideas for motivating support for Obama among their congregations. "We are concerned that many of our congregants are developing an aversion to supporting the president at the polls," read the invite email, which was sent out last month. The major concern among the clergy was that Obama's support for same-sex marriage would prompt many African Americans to...

    Under President Obama, there has been an unprecedentedly sharp, and first-ever, switch, to preferring the Republican Party, over the Democratic Party. In fact, the damage that has been done to the Democratic brand during the Obama Presidency, going from a historically normal Democratic ratio of 1.38 in 2008, down 39% to the present abysmal .83, exceeds the Republican fall-offs under each of George W. Bush’s terms, which declined from the Republican ratio of 1.41 in 2000, down 18% to 1.16 in 2004, and then down yet another 31% to the unprecedented low .80 in 2008, which virtually doomed the campaign...

Whats more, the buses were flown from stop to stop as well... But why wouldn't the presidential limousine have sufficed Or one of the other armored vehicles that routinely travel with the President? Apparently because the President wanted the imagery of a bus. And buses are what he got...So good news America! If these reports...

    Disinformation is a potent weapon. It is the basis of every psychological operation in modern warfare. “Psy-ops”, as these disinformation stunts are called, are a collection of the lies told to us every day. They tell us lies about a “close race” to force us to pay attention to their polls. They show Barack Obama either leading or close behind and sometimes show large 6- (or more) point swings in the absence of any particular triggering Here are the facts about where the largest and most important voting blocs are in relation to 2008 and today. There is not a...

    Exclusive: John Rocker likens election process to skilled illusionist's trickery Whether it’s good old-fashioned sleight of hand, smoke and mirrors or just some basic switch-a-roo, being visually and sometimes mentally fooled can be quite entertaining and oftentimes downright comical. Most of us enjoy to some degree trying to beat the illusionist at his own game. Into which pocket did the coin disappear, where will the ace of spades turn up, how did a bowling ball come from that tiny hat? Illusions can be very entertaining and can have us pitting wits in an effort to foil the scheme with great...

    During a campaign stop in Colorado Tuesday, President Barack Obama told a group of fired up Colorado State University students that Republicans were willing to “fib” in order to win the election. “You have a chance to prove the cynics wrong one more time. And over the next two months, the other side is going to spend more money than we’ve ever seen before. They will throw everything they’ve got, and the kitchen sink. They’ll just make stuff up if they have to — they’re doing it already,” the president said. “And they will send an avalanche of attack ads...

    <p>The family had already planned a private funeral for this Friday.</p> <p>So the question is - was the offer of a state funeral ever made? If it was to occur, it would happen immediately following the Friday funeral, just as Reagan's state funeral began two days after his private funeral in California. Once the state funeral commences, it is at least a three-day affair (Reagan's was five) that includes more than 30 hours of lying in state and a ceremony at the national cathedral.</p>

    A record number of out LGBT participants – 534 – are planning to go to Charlotte, N.C., next week for the Democratic National Convention. The number was released on Aug. 28 by the National Stonewall Democrats, the largest LGBT Democratic group in the country. NSD said four years ago about out 350 LGBT people participated in the Democratic convention. "What an amazing and inspiring convention this will be," said Jerame Davis, NSD excutive director. "With over 530 LGBT participants identified for this year's convention, we not only set a new record for LGBT participation in a national convention, we have...

    This past week, “2016: The Movie” about President Barack Obama opened in the Chicago area, and I chose to get more of an education about Obama by seeing the movie. After the inundation of canned hype for the movie on conservative talk shows across the Chicago radio dial that sounded more like commercials than honest endorsements of the movie, I was skeptical of what I was going to see. While some talk show hosts sounded like they were genuinely impressed with the documentary and honestly endorsing the film, there were those who were obviously reading a commercial script which was...

Obama explains that he is being outspent in states likes Iowa by Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney. Here's the entire email: Daniel -- When I'm out there talking to voters, we talk about what we've done, what we plan to do over the next four years, and why the other guys have dangerous plans to go back to the policies that failed America for almost a decade. But there is another question that keeps coming...
