    Dick Morris ^ | 10/11/2012 | Dick Morris
    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...

"I think unemployment is very important for now, so as of now I think (my vote) is Mitt Romney," Lohan told reporters, including FOX411's Pop Tarts, at the Mr. Pink Ginseng Drink Launch Party Los Angeles on Thursday night.
  • Idea for a mutual fund that will make the lefties explode!

    my crazy brain | today | me
    Everyone knows what a black hole of finance the "democratic strongholds" have become. Municipal bonds used to be a good investment, but with democrats having driven so many cities and states to the economic brink, I'd be leary. How about a tax-exempt mutual fund of Republican municipalities only? I'd guess the investors would flock to those because they would be safer, and we'd make it clear that democrats are a lousy investment.
  • The #1 Most Disturbing Thing About Biden in the Debate (vanity)

    Was anyone really surprised at Biden's behavior last night? I saw exactly what I expected to see. It's pretty much been his M.O. for as long as I can remember: mock, condescend, act bored by the other guy's youth/incompetence/ideas, etc. In other words, just like Putzident Obamugabe wanted, Joe was being Joe. However, for me, the part of the debate that was truly appalling -- even for Biden and his clown act -- was his dismissal of the concern of a nuclear Iran. I honestly could not believe what I was hearing, as he essentially poo-poo'ed Ryan (and by extention,...
  • Now apparent why Obama picked Biden for VP... Joker, thuggish and appealing to the "dumb vote"

    Biden was out of control in last night's debate. The sit-down format of the debate was deliberate and lends itself to this type of hyperbole attitude strategy exhibited by this poor excuse for a VP. Biden has that wicked joker smile, which is awkward and creepy... Nonetheless, Obama, mistakenly thought like in his own debate, that Biden did a good job. I can see Obama and Biden high-five'n each other in that corrupt, hood-winking, thuggish, Chicago-style poltician manner that only this Adminstration can. All this left me convinced that this administration has now become shameless in their pursuit of the...

The rocky planet, called 55 Cancri e, which is in the constellation of Cancer, is orbiting a sun-like star that is visible with the naked eye. Discovered by a US-Franco research team, the planet's radius is twice that of Earth's and its mass eight times greater. Temperatures on its surface reach 3,900°F (1,648°C).
