    Surrounded by whooping Republicans and suddenly unfavorable data, chief Obama campaign strategist David Axelrod called in the media cavalry today.And several reporters on the 11:15 a.m. phone conference promptly offered questions that bordered on advice.“Axe, I’m not sure you can hear me, David,” said NBC’s Andrea Mitchell, when she was invited to ask a question Oct. 4.We are going to hold Gov. Romney accountable for the things he said last night … as I hope you will make him justify those claims, because we need a honest and a genuine and realistic plan to move forward as a country …...

    The National Rifle Association (NRA) endorsed Mitt Romney for president late Thursday. NRA Executive vice president Wayne LaPierre and NRA Political Victory Fund chairman Chris Cox will formally announce the endorsement at a Romney rally in Virginia later Thursday evening. Vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan will also be on hand. “In this election, there is no debate,” LaPierre said in a statement. “There is only one choice – only one hope – to save our firearms freedom and our way of life.” The endorsement is not surprising — the NRA has a history of supporting conservative candidates, who traditionally support...

    AARP is reminding voters that it's not endorsing any candidates after President Barack Obama cited the group in the first presidential debate. Obama mentioned the lobbying organization for seniors twice Wednesday in discussing Medicare and Social Security. He noted that AARP supports his health care law and opposes the voucher-like program Republican Mitt Romney has proposed for Medicare in the future. AARP's senior vice president, John Hishta, says AARP is nonpartisan and has never consented to the use of its name by any campaign or political group and doesn't take sides in political races.

    "Simply stated, Cuyahoga County has lost enough Democrats and independents since 2008 that, when projected across the state of Ohio, Obama’s big 2008 gains are all gone. Given how drastically voter registration has changed in Cuyahoga County since 2008, it is likely that Romney can carry the state of Ohio, which is quite contrary to what popular media polls are saying.” That’s the analysis of Clinton Cooper at Election Insights [1], an Ohio firm that uses geographic information systems (GIS) and election data to illustrate the political landscape of the electorate.While most pundits and media outlets are focused on...

    Mitt Romney beat the britches off of President Obama in their first debate, including the devastating sound bite "you've been president for four years." It was the most-watched debate in 20 years and was the most decisive victory by a challenger in at least that long, but to look at the news today, you might be tempted to think it really didn't matter. But don't be fooled into thinking that what happened on Wednesday was not a massive moment for the race. CNN's post debate poll this time found 67 percent believed Romney won compared to 25 percent for Obama,...

    In 2008, the big media failed to look into Obama's background and weren't even interested in whether he was qualified to be president. He waltzed through the debates, with the liberal TV anchors and fellow candidates deferring to him. Republican candidate John McCain refused to hit Obama for his far-left beliefs, and halted his campaign when the financial crisis hit. This was the first real debate Obama ever had with someone who dared to defend himself and to question not just Obama's ideas, but also his dismal economic record - the worst of any president in the postwar era. And...

    Iran could announce a temporary halt to uranium enrichment before next month’s U.S. election in a move to save Barack Obama’s presidency, a source affiliated with high Iranian officials said today. The source, who remains anonymous for security reasons, said a three-person delegation of the Obama administration led by a woman engaged in secret negotiations yesterday with a representative of Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei. The delegation urged the Iranian leader to announce a halt to enrichment, even if temporary, before the Nov. 6 election, promising removal of some sanctions.

He focused primarily not on his record as president but on his interpretation of Mitt Romney’s proposals — which Romney vigorously defended.Obama never claimed that, based on his record, he deserves four more years. Rather, he said that he’s been fighting “every single day on behalf of the American people, the middle class, and all those striving to get into the middle class.” He...

    With the presidential election a little more than a month away, political science professors from the University of Colorado have updated their election forecast with more current economic conditions and are standing by their prediction that Mitt Romney will win. The professors -- Kenneth Bickers of CU's Boulder campus and Michael Berry of CU's Denver campus -- project that Romney will earn 330 of the total 538 Electoral College votes. President Barack Obama is expected to receive 208 votes, which is down five from the initial prediction that the professors announced on Aug. 22. “We continue to show that the...

    Under the Obama Administration, Big Labor has seized control of the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB or Board) to drive its self-interested agenda – a truly unprecedented development in the history of the NLRB. In the past, Board law has changed when control moved from one political party to another. But never before has a Board majority conducted itself in such unprincipled partisan manner, ramming through an extremist agenda and dissembling about it. Three examples demonstrate the point: The NLRB stripped workers of their right to a secret ballot election to challenge their employer’s recognition of a union by card...

While he posted a huge lead in the city of Chicago, the poll found him actually losing to Romney in suburban Cook County. It was a shock that I set aside as an outlier. A new poll of Illinois' 10th Congressional District, which includes parts of Cook County, however, suggests the August poll might not be such an aberration. The poll, from WeAskAmerica, finds Obama with just a 2 point lead over Romney, 47-45 in the suburban district. Obama won the...

    Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid has become the chief attack dog against his co-religionist Mitt Romney, but on Wednesday that attack went even further when his official Senate office released a statement that attributed a quote to Mr. Romney, even though he said the exact opposite. Mr. Reid's release quoted the Republican presidential nominee's staff as telling the Boston Globe that Mr. Romney would "not honor deportation exemptions" that President Obama has granted under his new non-deportation policy. But that phrase doesn't appear in the Globe's article. In fact, the newspaper said Mr. Romney's staff specifically "said he would honor...

    The presidential debates start October 3 and extend to October 22. But who wins or scores in the debates will have no influence on tens of thousands of Americans who will have already cast their votes for president and are not permitted to change their minds. In 2008, 31 percent of voters cast their ballots prior to Election Day, and the count was more than half in some battleground states. The percentage is expected to top 40 percent this year since early voting is now allowed in 32 states and began in Iowa on September 27. In 2008, John McCain...

    The mainstream media hasn’t covered Operation Fast and Furious too closely, but as far as Republicans are concerned the botched “gun-walking” operation is money in the bank. In an email to Republican “friends,” GOP vice presidential nominee Paul Ryan called for Attorney General Eric Holder’s resignation, while soliciting donations. Ryan says Holder has “misled Congress and entirely botched the investigation of the Operation Fast and Furious debacle — yet he still leads our nation’s Justice Department.” Because President Obama won’t fire Holder, Ryan suggests that voters fire both of them this November. To help, Ryan requests that email recipients “donate...

    Federal functionaries serving radical agendas rather than taxpayers riddle Washington. Last week came further evidence that cultural Marxism imbues the Department of Agriculture. Orthodox Marxism fixates on the economic, revolving around class struggles. Cultural Marxism, otherwise called political correctness, incorporates social dynamics. The “privileged” class extends beyond capitalists and bourgeois to whites, men, Christians and heterosexuals. While workers are still afforded victimhood those “alienated” by American culture also include minorities, women and even people behaving ways historically considered immoral. President Obama perceives society through this politically correct prism. His raison d’ętre rests on a post-modern variant of Marxism popular in...

Obama and other elitists believe that government exists to control our personal lives and even tell us how much we can eat or drink.

    President Barack Hussein "kill list" Obama says that he needs four more years to fix the economy. Never mind that the Gross Domestic Product grew at a "less than spectacular" rate of 1.3 percent in the second quarter of 2012. Or that George Walker Bush's deficit-to-GDP ratio was 2.7 percent, while Obama's deficit-to-GDP ratio is 8.9 percent (Reagan's, by the way, was 4.2 percent). Or that today's economy is far worse than it was in 2008. You remember, the one Obama claimed that his policies would correct. So, considering today's economy, despite what Obama (claims he) was not told, and...

    His name is on the ballot. But Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. hasn't made a campaign appearance since the primary. The Democratic congressman from Chicago is running for re-election for his seat in the House of Representatives, but has been out of sight for the last three months, being treated for bipolar disorder. Campaign advisers told the New York Times, which noted that the campaign's office was locked shut, that the candidate is waiting for the doctor's approval to campaign again. The son of Rev. Jesse Jackson was expected to win the election easily, but the Washington Post reports he is...

    In a video obtained exclusively by The Daily Caller, then-presidential candidate Barack Obama tells an audience of black ministers, including the Rev. Jeremiah Wright, that the U.S. government shortchanged Hurricane Katrina victims because of racism.
  • Team Obama trying to unring the Obamaphone

    10/02/2012 12:09:22 PM PDT · by dead · 176 replies
    Up until the viral video of Obamaphone Lady appeared (“Keep Obama in president, you know!”), the webpage at obamaphone.net was all about how President Obama was giving all the poor people free phones. As if he was paying the bill, rather than us. But now that the Obamaphone Lady has been exposing the program so effectively as a vote-buying giveaway to hate-filled societal leeches, the Obamaphone.net page has changed completely. Guess what?! Obama has nothing to do with it! As you might expect, it’s Bush’s fault, at least partially. The webpage that previously bragged about how much Obama was doing...

    Barack Obama hates the poor and middle class. Thanks to Barack Obama gas prices doubled, incomes dropped, unemployment soared and the deficit nearly tripled in less than four years. The poor and middle class suffered the most.

    "Bush Lied, People Died" they chanted. When the intelligence about weapons of mass destruction in Iraq -- information that was believed by the intelligence agencies of our major allies; that was described by the Clinton-appointed head of the CIA as a "slam dunk"; and that was agreed to by heads of state and leaders of the Democratic and Republican parties -- turned out to be badly mistaken, George W. Bush was branded a liar. Even Democrats such as Bill Clinton, Al Gore, John Kerry, Hillary Clinton, Nancy Pelosi, Tom Daschle, and Ted Kennedy, who had warned about Saddam's WMD program...
  • Biden: Middle Class 'Has Been Buried the Last Four Years'

    Vice President Joe Biden said the middle class "has been buried the last four yeas" at a campaign event in Charlotte, North Carolina: "This is deadly earnest, man. This is deadly earnest," Biden said. "How they can justify--how they can justify--raising taxes when the middle class has been buried the last four years... How in Lord's name..." Of course, Barack Obama has been president the last four years, and Biden has been vice president.

If you live in a state that has started voting, or if you know someone in such a state, spread the word. The method is easy - take a pic or video of the fraudulent activity with your smart phone. Geotag the pic or video. Then upload it (youtube, facebook, twitter, FR, etc.) and share it with the world! If you don't know...

    HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — A judge on Tuesday blocked Pennsylvania's divisive voter identification requirement from going into effect on Election Day, delivering a hard-fought victory to Democrats who said it was a ploy to defeat President Barack Obama and other opponents who said it would prevent the elderly and minorities from voting. Commonwealth Court Judge Robert Simpson said in his ruling that he was concerned by the state's stumbling efforts to create a photo ID that is easily accessible to voters and that he could not rely on the assurances of government officials at this late date that every voter...

    Pajamas Media ^ | 10/02/2012 | Roger Kimball
    At a dinner party in London Saturday, I was asked to say a few words about the upcoming presidential election in the United States. All of the guests were what my friend Otto Penzler calls “politically mature,” i.e., they regarded Barack Obama with varying degrees of fear, loathing, and distaste. But they had also, most of them, imbibed deeply of The Narrative: the fairy tale dispensed by virtually all the legacy (formerly known as “the mainstream”) media that Obama was as sure a thing to win as was possible to discover in this mutable sublunary world. There was some surprise...

    The media were all atwitter Monday over a new Washington Post-ABC News poll finding President Obama eleven points ahead of Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney in key swing states. Within 90 minutes of the Post's Jennifer Rubin exposing that the margin of error in the poll was - wait for it! - an astonishing eight points, the paper felt the need to publish a new piece explaining the whole thing. The Post's Jon Cohen and Dan Balz wrote Sunday: On the eve of their first presidential debate, President Obama leads or is at parity with Mitt Romney on virtually every...
