  • Gravity Hits The Obama Campaign [cracks in "inevitable" armor dries up "tribute" from businesses]

    Red State ^ | October 9, 2012 | Dan McLaughlin
    This is a must-read Sean Trende column on why Obama’s bandwagon strategy has demanded that he remain in the lead at every point in the campaign. I’ve been saying for months now that Obama’s fundraising in particular – and even moreso, his ability to deter Romney from raising money from business – was hugely dependent on convincing business interests that Obama’s regulators would still be calling the shots after the election and they should not feel safe about going all-in to be rid of him. This is also why Obama’s team has gone nuclear in its attacks on individual polls...

    A Conservative's Voice ^ | OCTOBER 9, 2012 | Eric S. Salomon
    Two post-debate polls show Mitt Romney closing the gap in Michigan. A poll conducted by WeAskAmerica from September 25th-September 27th showed President Obama leading Romney by 12 points. One week later, after the first debate, two polls show Romney within three points of the President in Michigan. Michigan is typically a Democratic stronghold because of its large concentration of union workers and the ethnic diversity of large cities like Detroit. Michigan also happens to be the birthplace of Governor Romney. Whether or not that will have an impact of voters is yet to be determined. In Pennsylvania, where again the...

    Spanish Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy has a singular problem for a governing politician: 84% of all voters have “little” or “no” confidence in him. Even 62% of the supporters of his own conservative People’s Party (PP) distrust him. The fate of Alfredo Perez Rubalcaba, leader of the opposition Spanish Socialist Workers’ Party (PSOE), is even worse: 90% of all voters distrust him, as do 77% of the supporters of his own party! Those are the two top figures of the two major political parties, and the utterly frustrated and disillusioned Spaniards are defenestrating them both.It has been a short...

    Lawrence Journal World ^ | October 8, 2012 | Reasonmclucus
    President Barack Obama's obsession with a mythical Mitt Romney $5 trillion tax cut raises serious questions about Obama's mental health. The federal government only receives about $1.2 trillion in total income taxes per year. There is no way a $5 trillion tax cut would be possible in the short term. Congress would have to almost eliminate the income tax to produce a $5 trillion cut in 5 years. Cutting $500 billion a year would take 10 years to produce a $5 trillion cut. Cutting $250 billion a year would take 20 years to produce $5 trillion in cuts. I considered...

    Deeply embarrassing, but not entirely the campaign’s fault. If memory serves, Romney’s Big Bird line was the thin reed to which liberals on Twitter were clinging the morning after the Denver debacle: “There’s been a strong grassroots outcry over the attacks on Big Bird. This is something that mothers across the country are alarmed about, and you know, we’re tapping into that,” Psaki told reporters aboard Air Force One on Wednesday… “The larger point… is, aside from our love for Big Bird and Elmo, as is evidenced by the last few days, the point that we’re making here is that...

After all he was the man said who said we were all Americans no matter whether we came from blue or red states. People were inspired by his words and believed he would reduce the debt, save the economy, end the wars, and change the way business was conducted in Washington. They chanted “yes we can” and embarked on a quest to get the man who would be America’s...

    The Telegraph ^ | 10/9/2012 | Ambrose Evans-Pritchard
    Well, here is a shocker for the peak oil camp. Iraq’s oil output will more than double from 2.6 million to 6 million barrels a day (b/d) by the end of the decade. This is 45pc of world oil supply growth over these years. It will reach 8 million b/d by 2035. By then, Iraq will have overtaken Russia to become the world’s second biggest oil exporter – supplying China with 2 million b/d in a modern marine revival of the silk trade – and earning $200 billion a year in revenues. It will also be a major gas exporter....

What matters now is what the President has done while he’s held the office. Voters should be focusing on his record as President and not get bogged down in reviewing ancient history.” if you...

    After opening several stores without much pushback, Elon Musk's ambition to replicate the Apple experience in Tesla factory stores is now facing potential roadblocks. Dealer associations in a handful of states, and state regulators in at least one case, say Tesla's stores violate state franchise laws that prohibit factory ownership of dealerships. Electric-vehicle maker Tesla now operates 17 stores in 10 states and the District of Columbia, most in shopping malls. Another six are scheduled to open this fall. The protesting dealer associations say Tesla's factory-owned stores present unfair competition for rival dealerships, are inconvenient for consumers needing repairs and,...

But what if the real problem with polling is more attributable to the people who respond to surveys than the polling companies themselves? Thanks to a study examining the accuracy of polling, we now know that in some areas, surveys can be disturbingly inaccurate, in large part because people are willing to outright lie to a pollster. According to a report issued by the Pew Research Center for the People and the...

Judge Andrew Napolitano, a Fox News commentator, raised the question on Neil Cavuto's "Your World" show Wednesday. And while it seems fanciful in light of the safeguards built into our democracy and its institutions, it recognizes the threat posed by the president's policies and actions if left unchecked.

In the November election, Massachusetts is poised to be the third state in America -- and the first state in the East -- to legalize so-called Assisted Suicide. For over a century, the euthanasia movement has been one of the more disturbing parts of progressivism, which has become modern liberalism. After the progressives popularized it, the Nazis adopted it and became the first government to use it as part of its policy. After the war, groups like the Hemlock Society kept it going in the U.S. In recent years, as abortion and similar...

Suddenly one of the men -- not even the closest one to Mr. Addlespurger -- stepped over to the teacher and socked him in the face, knocking him out with one punch.

    During the course of California Gov. Jerry Brown’s campaign for Proposition 30, the estimated $6 billion income and sales tax hike on the November ballot, school officials throughout the state have been warning students through letters, emails, rallies, and word of mouth that the passage of this ballot measure is essential and necessary for the continuation of the California educational system as it currently stands. While school officials are allowed to voice their personal opinion on an issue outside of their professional role, they are not allowed to lobby students or their parents on ballot measures using educational funds, as...

    A is A. Jihad is savagery. Hamas top dog Khaled Mashaal: "Nothing will restore the homeland but jihad, the rifle, and self-sacrifice" Jihadwatch: Muslims have been frequently writing and tweeting me, asking me, "What is your definition of jihad?" "What do you know about jihad, anyway?" and the like. It is certain, however, that none of them will write to Khaled Mashaal and ask him the same question. All that nonsense is solely a tactic to fool the kuffar. "Mash'al: The Homeland Will Be Restored Only Through Jihad, The Rifle, And Self-Sacrifice," from MEMRI, October 7 (thanks to all who...

    All this for a damn debate!?! Ay yi yi! This is bad news. It might be time to unleash our secret weapon.“Here I come to save the day!”We may have to backpedal a little on the new “aw schucks, I’m just the wife around here” persona that Lady M just recently crafted(snip) "So I don't even have the kind of expertise and the time in to be able to provide the kind of advice and guidance that he's already getting." Here’s the problem: nobody else, including BO, seems to have that kind of expertise either. Which may explain the bad...

    Barack Obama leads 46/44 in new Investor’s Business Daily/Christian Science Monitor/TIPP Poll. Well that’s what they are saying anyway. The TIPP poll shows Mitt Romney has closed up a 7 point deficit …..TIPP’s accompanying internals that supports its headline numbers. From the earliest days of this campaign the truth of Barack Obama’s numbers has remained the same: he is not winning any group he lost and not doing better with any group he did win in 2008. These numbers are black and white and not subject to interpretation. The sampling errors that seem to be build-in to all of today’s...
