    Avoid Windows 8! I had the trial version and purchased the upgrade on line, After an entire day trying to find problems, I finally got it working. Then today, I was doing a search on Bing and Windows started to place a B when ?I typed a letter. And added an h before selected words. I rebooted thinking it was a short cut error. Now I can't log in! When I type my password, it puts the CAPS LOCK on when I type the number 1. And I cannot undo it, What a POS operating system.

    Everyone is so afraid that pictures of Obama riding around New Jersey for a few minutes with Chris Christy are going to throw the election to Obama. Four years of awful governance gets put aside for a ride around storm damage and a promise to throw money (ours) at storm victims? Is it really that bad? Is our position that tenuous?

    At the time of this article, we have less than a week before we decide to continue our current path as a nation, or choose a different one. In America, there are many people who simply do not follow politics, and as such, those people are left with an epic struggle of responsibly choosing their next candidate. Their struggle is mired in choosing their candidate based on what the media says, what campaign ads say, and who their friends and family are voting for. Yet, apart from the “noise” of these overwhelming influences is a very real and very harsh...

    While these photos of Powell and Farrakhan were taken at an event celebrating the 50th anniversary of Jamaica's independence, I cannot help but wonder what the left would do if these photos where of Rush Limbaugh and David Duke while they attended Missouri's celebration of statehood. I know what the MSM and those on the left who hate conservatives would say. They would have the picture on most newspapers and if there was video you know that MSNBC, CNN, CNBC, and the alphabet networks would all begin their nightly news with it. The storyline would be how they always...

    vanity | October 30, 2012 | me
    It's tough to be objective in forecasting the presidential election, but based on the polls I have read about, I think Romney has a close to 50% change of winning. Intrade currently estimates Obama has a 63% chance of winning the election and a 62% chance of winning the popular vote by 0.5% or more. The popular vote market surprises me. Romney is slightly ahead in most national polls. I don't want to be paranoid, but are people trying to manipulate the Intrade market to demoralize Republicans?

Roads will be flooded, trees will be down. People will not be able to reach polling locations”. The mayor is polling several points behind challenger Henry Morgan who is already confident of a victory. He says the mayor's call for delaying the election is “a ridiculous attempt to buy time”.

    Ok, so here is the latest explanation (this from a self described Romney voter who is "concerned") for the EV numbers. You can't measure D/R because of all the "unaffiliated" voters in OH. If a voter doesn't vote in the previous primary he is labeled "unaffiliated" in the next election. Supposedly, this means that 30% more Ds will come out of the woodwork as "unaffiliated." First, while the D primary was boring, people don't come out for a reason. They MAY be bored, but they also might not like where the party is heading. Second, the crash we've seen in...

The three most recent Ohio polls (CNN, Time, and CBS/Quinnipiac) show President Obama with a lead of 4-5 points. Meanwhile, the latest ABC/Washington Post national tracking poll has the race a dead heat, with Romney at 49 percent and Obama at 48 percent. How is that possible? Three things: Democrats, white voters, and men. 1) The Democratic advantage in the Ohio polls is anywhere from 3-9 points...

New emails and documents have shown that not only did the President and the administration know that this was a terrorist – while it was still happening – bit that absolutely nothing was done about it. The security was denied only because it would be admitting that the world was a more dangerous place. There was an election coming up and if they admitted this, it might hurt his re-election chances.

Romney simply infuriated Obama further by acting calm, knowledgeable, and presidential to Obama’s junior high school bully. At what was arguably the debate’s most watchable moment, Obama ridiculed Romney’s noting that the US Navy, under Obama and Harry Reid, is headed for third-world status with the smallest number of ships since 1917. Obama sneered that in today’s military, ‘we don’t have many horses or bayonets, either. We have...

    Obama Benefited Financially from the Auto Bailout OCT 19, 2012 • BY DANIEL HALPER Earlier today, the Obama campaign pushed around a story that they claimed proved Mitt Romney "was against the auto bailout...but personally [benefited] from it." "Today, [deputy campaign manger Stephanie] Cutter and the Obama campaign were pushing an article in The Nation saying that Romney - who opposed bailing out the auto industry as carried out by Obama - actually made $15.3 million from the bailout through a $1 million investment with a hedge fund firm that put cash into GM supplier Delphi," the Columbus Dispatch reports....
  • Obama explains how communist Van Jones got into White House, he has no binders

    I always wondered how Van Jones got through an FBI check (always wondered how Bill Ayers is not on do not fly list as well) I think the answer is obvious, Obama was never given any binders.

    I have been thinking again of Clint Eastwood’s speech at the Republic Convention and it has occurred to me how his apt his metaphor of the empty chair was in describing Barak Obama was for the Obama Presidency. During Obama’s tenure as President of the United States the chair that by all rights should have been occupied by Barak H. Obama has been left vacant. Consider the chair at the President’s daily intelligence briefing which was left vacant 57% of the days of Barak Obama’s first term. Consider the chair that was vacant at meetings with Prime Minister of Israel...

    Obama Campaign
    I know how President Obama feels right now because I've been there. These final 20 days will be the toughest of the whole campaign. We'll win this, but only if we go after every single vote. Right now, Barack needs everyone who believes in him to step up. If you do, that will see him through. Midnight tonight is the last FEC fundraising deadline of this campaign, and then all of our planning and building comes down to just one last test on November 6th. Let's bring it home for Barack. If you can, make a donation of $5 or...

    (Associated Posers)- LONG ISLAND, New York – Mitt Romney showed up on time at an Obama campaign rally held at Hoefstra University. Obama sycophant Candy Crowley led the so-called “debate” in as pro-Obama manner as possible, filling in for the role of his missing TelePrompTer. At one point Republican candidate Mitt Romney accused the President of taking almost two weeks before he called the attack in Benghazi, Libya a “terrorist attack”. Obama and the moderator said this was not true. “Get the transcript” Obama said, in what was almost surely a scripted move, because Candy Crowley just happened to have...

    I saw a discussion board where somebody called Obama "Miss Elizabeth". I guess the beefy Ms. Crowley had to save The Effeminate One's bacon last night. It's like watching the WWE, only the female Lefty moderators take the steroids, and the Democrat male debaters are the damsels in distress...
