    Obama campaign press secretary Ben LaBolt abruptly ended a heated radio interview Thursday after being pressed on President Barack Obama’s differing statements on the terrorist attack on the U.S. Consulate in Libya. LaBolt insisted on Cleveland‘s WTAM that the White House has been sharing all the facts as they’ve come in from the intelligence community. Asked whether the president should make a statement disavowing his past comments blaming the assault on an anti-Islam video, LaBolt pushed back. “The president called it an act of terror within 24 hours, he again updated the American people on the incident in Benghazi in...

    This week, thanks to a big increase in its television spending, Mitt Romney has turned the tables on the president and now is spending more on television advertising in the swing states. Buoyed by a 64% increase in his television spending (vs. only 2% for Obama) Romney is spending $22.4 million on ads in Florida, Virginia, Ohio, Colorado, Iowa and Nevada compared to $17.5 million for President Obama. In the previous week — and for several weeks before that — Obama had a spending edge. In the week of October 1st, Obama outspent Romney by $17.2 to $14.8 million. This...

    Granted it is rough English to understand, as it is machine translation from the mainstream, non-Chavez "El Universal" newspaper in Caracas, Venezuela today, but it gives the street level tactics the Socialist Community Organizers used in Venezuela to eek out a victory for Communist Hugo Chavez earlier this week. It is provided below in its entirety, with the link to the original Spanish.Of specific interest will be the tactical description of the "double wave" Chavez PSUV strategy on Election Day in polling zones they identified as somewhat sympathetic to the anti-Chavez democratic forces.

  • MILLER: Targeting Paul Ryan The GOP’s Second Amendment advocate stands up to the gun grabbers

    Paul Ryan faces Joe Biden in a vice presidential debate Thursday where guns could become one of the many hot topics discussed. The Wisconsin Republican congressman has recently become a lightning rod for attacks from gun grabbers who think the issue is their ticket to thwarting the Romney campaign’s growing momentum in the polls. Consider the local ABC affiliate in Michigan that ambushed Mr. Ryan on Monday. Reporter Terry Camp used his one-on-one time with the GOP vice presidential candidate to ask — twice — whether the country has a gun problem. Mr. Ryan replied that the nation has a...

    It was a news photo that, as Gawker quipped, was "ripe for captioning." A pic of Mitt Romney bending over, while a seemingly astonished schoolgirl stands behind him, mouth agape. The photograph, posted Monday by The Associated Press for all to see, has since surged across the Internet. The candidate riding a wave of confidence from last week's debate performance was suddenly made, pardon, the butt of jokes. So was it a cheap shot? Tim Graham, media analysis director at the Media Research Center, says absolutely.

    Wasserman Schultz, Harrington face final month of campaignBy Kathleen Haughney, Tallahassee Bureau October 7, 2012 TALLAHASSEE - So what may lie ahead for South Florida's most visible woman politician? Four-term U.S. Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz has been talked about as a future House Speaker, a future governor, even a potential member of the Obama administration if it wins re-election. But, first the 46-year-old Weston resident must get past a determined restaurateur from Davie who is hoping to be the Republican who pierces the Democratic National Committee chair's armor. Karen Harrington, 48, who lost to Wasserman Schultz in 2010, is hoping...

    (Reuters) - President Barack Obama on Friday hailed a drop in the U.S. jobless rate to the lowest level since he took office, saying the country had "come too far to turn back now," as he sought to recover from a lackluster debate performance against Republican challenger Mitt Romney. A decline in unemployment to 7.8 percent in September, announced just more than four weeks before Election Day, gave an unexpected shine to the most vulnerable part of Obama's record - his economic stewardship - and offered him a chance to reset his re-election bid. The rate dropped from 8.1 percent...

    DEUTSCHE BANK: Here's One Way That Obama Campaign DID Juice The Jobs Data Rob WileOctober 5, 2012 Today's drop in the unemployment rate had the conspiracy theorists accusing the Obama administration of massaging the numbers. But according to Deutsche Bank's Joe LaVorgna, Obama's campaign may have played a role in the numbers. ...And so did Mitt Romney's. In his note summing up the week in economics, LaVorgna writes: we have observed a large rise in parttime employment, which arguably hints of the sort of temporary, part-time hiring that is often associated with political campaigns. In addition, we also observed a...

    I am the woman in the Green Bay Packer jacket at Rep. Paul Ryan’s rally in Clinton who asked him the question about specific plans to fix our economy. Needless to say, I was quite shocked to learn the Obama campaign seized my question, putting out the statement “Even Ryan can’t attend his own rally without being called out.” I was not calling Ryan out. I had the opportunity to ask a direct question to Paul Ryan and what I got was a complete direct answer with no spin. Even though 600 other people were attending, I felt Mr Ryan...

    Could be those union members have long memories after getting stiffed by a President who said he’d march the picket lines with them and then found himself too busy in every state around Wisconsin to stop in to support their recall efforts: President Barack Obama will hit the campaign trail following the Wednesday presidential debate, stumping in four states rated on the CNN Electoral Map as toss ups, according to schedules released by his campaign and the White House. On Thursday, Obama will hold an event in the debate host city – Denver - then continue on to Madison, Wisconsin,...

    The largest divergence among conservative and liberal polling critics this election is the debate over who will actually show up at the voting booth this November. Differences between the amounts of Democrats versus Republicans included in the poll are frequent. But embedded in each of these assumptions are questions on the racial make-up and how that varies from election to election. Democrats consistently talk about the “coalition of the ascendant” where the fastest growing segments of the population are minorities. As such they make up an ever-increasing segment of the voting population but also vote overwhelmingly in favor of Democrats....

    Things went from bad to worse for Jill Biden on Friday after accidentally cracking a joke about her husband's manhood. Captured on video, this is the moment the Second Lady lost her cool at a New Hampshire campaign event, giggling like a schoolgirl as the crowd roared with delight. Passionately describing Mr Biden's work ethic she began: 'I've seen Joe up close,' making a wide motion with her hands, before blushing as she realised the innuendo she had just made. 'It's in my remarks, really,' she insisted. A wave of amused titters swept the audience, Mrs Biden allowing herself an...
