    I turned off the debate as soon as it was over. Did anyone catch what the shill George said? I ask because of the Newsbusters story showing he called 8 of the last 9 for the Demon Rat nominee.

    In this modern time, no one expects a Democrat to be honest, not the public, not the media, not Democrats, and especially not the Progressives and Liberals. Lying is the accepted modus operandi, every bit of news or public announcement from the Obama administration and its mainstream media is considered propaganda at best and often just a bald-faced lie. It's no big deal; the public has accepted the fact that Obama lies as a matter of course. He is a liar and they love him for his arrogant manner of pretending people believe his lies. Pat Caddel, former advisor to...

    Salon ^ | October 2, 2012
    ..............In the Right-wing's dreamworld, the Obama Phone Lady is a "surplus" person with no place in an Ayn Rand fantasy, what is the Tea Party GOP's dystopian soon-to-be made true reality. Culture is also transmitted through historical memory. The white gun shop owner who believes that Obama is a socialist usurper represents a type ofwhiteness that is not benign. While white folks imagine themselves through the lens of white privilege (where they are kind, innocent, and good). For others, Whiteness (and by implication, white people) has been a harbinger of violence, death, destruction, and exclusion. White men with guns who...

    Slate ^ | October 2, 2012 | Josh Voorhees
    A new poll out today suggests that GOP accusations of intentional manipulation on the part of pollsters are resonating with the American public. Roughly 42 percent of those surveyed by left-leaning Public Policy Polling said pollsters were manipulating their data in order to show President Obama with a lead, while 40 percent said that wasn't the case. The remaining 18 percent said they were not sure what to think. The exact wording of the question: "Do you think pollsters are intentionally skewing their polls this year to help Barack Obama, or not?" The results show that self-identified Republicans were particularly...

    The Hill ^ | 10/02/2012 | Justin Sink
    A plurality of Americans and more than seven in 10 Republicans say pollsters are intentionally skewing results to benefit President Obama, according to a new poll released Tuesday. Some 42 percent of voters surveyed by Daily Kos and SEIU believe pollsters are manipulating their sample sizes to benefit the incumbent president, while 40 percent do not. An additional 18 percent said they were not sure. That's evidence that Republican claims that Democrats and minority voters are being oversampled in national polls could be resonating — and potentially undermining the momentum of the president's early lead. Some Republicans — most prominently...

    Mitt Romney faces the most important week of his political life. Wednesday night's first television debate in Denver could be his last chance to rescue his presidential campaign. Since the Republican Party convention Mr Romney has suffered a gradual but steady decline in the polls. His secretly-recorded comments to donors last month that he did not worry about 47 per cent of the electorate has done enormous damage. The race is still close nationally but in the all-important swing states he is losing ground to his Democrat opponent, Barack Obama.

    In case anyone just arrived from Mars, the mainstream media wants Mitt Romney to fail in his quest for the White House. Surprised? They will do whatever possible as “legitimate journalists” to collaborate with the Obama re-election campaign — shamefully so.(Snip)The mainstream media is in the tank for Obama. Every student journalism can recognize that. It’s too late for most already involved “professionally.” Most of them have already violated most of the ethical rules and sold their souls to Obama long ago.

    One of the most amazing — and significant — statistics of this election season has gone almost completely unnoticed: Only 9% of sampled households gave an answer to pollsters in 2012: It has become increasingly difficult to contact potential respondents and to persuade them to participate. The percentage of households in a sample that are successfully interviewed – the response rate – has fallen dramatically. At Pew Research, the response rate of a typical telephone survey was 36% in 1997 and is just 9% today.

    Gallup ^ | 9/27/12 | Gallup's Editor in Chief
    The discussion of the party identification composition of poll samples comes up in every presidential election with which I've been involved. Interested observers often opine that when a given poll shows that Candidate X is ahead, it cannot be correct because there is a higher percentage of voters who identify with Candidate X’s party in the sample than there should be, based on comparison to some previous standard. There are several reasons why this is a faulty approach to evaluating a poll's results. Party identification is basically an attitudinal variable, not a stable population parameter... Party identification changes as political...

Police have been waiting since July 28 to make an arrest because Holmes said they needed more evidence of Turley’s intent. They got that evidence last week when Turley posted his film on YouTube, in which he clearly states that he is, “about to mimic a modern day terrorist brandishing an intimidating weapon.” That gave police what they needed to make an arrest.

    The overwhelming majority of public opinion polls show President Obama cruising to re-election. State polls of Ohio, Florida, Virginia, Wisconsin and Iowa are now consistently showing Obama with leads of five points or more.But Romney is not behind in the polls because liberal Republicans are being turned off or independents are moving toward Obama. Most polls show Romney doing very well within his own party and holding his own with independents. Romney is dropping in the polls because pollsters are predicting a Democratic edge in turnout that will make 2008 look like a good year for the GOP.For example, the...

The Romney campaign, in contrast, had 403 people on its payroll, and paid them a median salary of $6,437 in August, which would mean $77,250 a year. **SNIP** Nevertheless, the RNC appears to have a smaller staff than the Democratic National Committee.

    In addition to Bill Clinton’s new role as President Obama’s “Secretary of Explaining Stuff,” the former president served as a micro-targeter for the Obama campaign Tuesday with a speech that focused largely on college students and seniors in the up-for-grabs Sunshine State.

    CNN Commits Birth Certificate Fraud To Cover For Obama’s Constitutional Ineligibility Posted by Pamela Barnett - 11 September 2012 CNN states on their program that a picture of a real Hawaii birth certificate is Obama’s when it belongs to a Japanese-American (possibly Keith Suganuma) child born in 1960 to a father Francis (possibly last name Suganuma), 42, who was a police officer and a mother Mildred, 20. Please review screen shots from CNN’s video and help fill in the rest of the pieces. I think the mother’s middle and maiden names may be Kazuo and Yashiki respectively. Notice that CNN...

What people have not been talking about enough is that the Ryan budget contains an $897 billion sinkhole: massive but unexplained cuts in such discretionary domestic programs as education, food and drug inspection, workplace safety, environmental protection and law enforcement.

    Miami morning tv | September 10, 2012
    Just tuning in to south Florida tv, and lo and behold, the stations are all THRILLED to report Obama's interaction with the pizza well as the impending appearance of Bill the impeached sink stainer Clinton. No reporting on the lousy jobs numbers. We heard from those in Obamugabe's urban base....strangely, no one who disagreed with him was available for comment. One station had a little extended video of BO and the Pizza, the video of the encounter looks even MORE like a setup than the still photos.
