  • Have You Noticed? Secret Service is treating Mitt Romney like a President, not just a candidate

    Last night I watched Mitt Romney’s speech from Bucks County, Pennsylvania and noticed something I hope you’ve picked up on: his Secret Service detail is treating Mitt Romney like a President…and not just like a candidate. What I mean is that the looks on the agents faces, and the way they aggressively keep turning their heads and watching out for Romney, is the same thing they do for the actual President…but it’s not the same level of intensity these guys provide for a mere candidates for office, former presidents, First Ladies, etc. While the Secret Service always strives to do...

    Since 1996, I have been terribly underwhelmed with the Republican nominees for the Presidency of the United States.  I have made no bones about the fact that I haven't voted for the nominee two of the last three general elections.  I took a pass on Bush in 2000, voted for him in 2004, and took a pass on McCain in 2008.  Look at what Bush passed off in 2008.  I voted for that.  Good grief! When I make it known what my vote is going to be, I try to be reasoned about it.  I'm not here to convince...

    Down 16% overall, down from 54,340 in 2008 to 45,337 this year-- down 9,007 or 16%. And most of the decline came from Democratic voters. The numbers show a huge increase in GOP voters here: Democrats: 127,741 53.36% or 89% of 2008 Republicans: 47,091 19.67% or 138% of 2008 Other: 64,544 26.96 or 78% of 2008 Total: 239,376 or 84% of 2008 Compare this with the 2008 results: Obama: 458,422 69.05% McCain: 199,880 30.11% Total difference: 258,242 If GOP voting is up 38% in just the early voting and the Republicans are better prepared for election day, they could narrow...

    Barack Obama, who was influenced by the peace movement of the 1960’s, was the one candidate most unlike President George W. Bush. And so it was that Barack Obama became the 44th president of the United States. After four years of the Obama administration the American economy continues to falter, the world is more dangerous than it was four years ago despite the death of Osama bin Laden, and our national debt is threatening our entire economic existence. Today the federal government spends eleven dollars for every seven dollars it collects. Our national debt has soared past $16 trillion.

    2012 will not be a reprise of 2000. Although Barack Obama is building an army / phalanx of lawyers to try and redirect the election to the courts with the hope that the justices will lean against throwing out a sitting president, it won’t happen. 2000 only happened because the election was so close, with a mere half percent difference between the candidates. In 2012 that will not be a problem. Of course that was all about electoral votes, not popular, but the two usually go hand in hand. Michael Barone does a good job of looking at the electoral...

    Illinois Review ^ | November 5, 2012 A.D. | John F. Di Leo
    Among the Obama campaign’s many accusations this year, one of the more interesting ones has been the claim that Mitt Romney was an “outsourcer” during his days at Bain Capital. When exploring this claim, we must remember the job of a company like Bain Capital: it’s to create value for the investors by building a successful company. The vast majority of companies that Bain shepherded to success during Romney’s tenure were and are, in fact, major employers, major retail, wholesale, or manufacturing firms that employ thousands and thousands of Americans. The net result of Mitt Romney being involved in the...

    RFI‎ ^ | November 5, 2012 | Laura Angela Bagnetto in Brownsville
    In the Rio Grande Valley, one of the most pressing issues during the US presidential race is what each candidate says about immigration. This resonates in south Texas and especially in Brownsville, where more than 90 per cent of residents are Latino. Barack Obama has tried to garner support amongst Latino voters with a last-ditch effort on immigration policy. Mitt Romney says he wants to see a solution to the immigration issue. He says illegal migrants should self-deport - that their lives will be so hard in the US that they will want to go back to their country of...

    Hello Friends, I know many of you are a little anxious regarding the election. Nearly all the media outlets are painting a fatalistic picture about the inevitability of Obama’s re-election. On the face of it, it would seem that the tactic is intended to discourage the anti-Obama faction and to push the many in our society that don’t have a shred of independent thinking in their DNA, to let the crowd prompt their decision. As I see things, the ‘Bandwagon’ syndrome is not going to get it done this time around. Look at the enormous crowds for the Romney rallies...

    While Liberals wear the badge of self-righteous compassion on their sleeves, for the world to admire, some of us are looking beyond the hype for an explanation of this Obama philosophy that has trapped us in economic and moral doldrums for the last four years. Obama came to the national stage as a messianic figure; he could fix our problems and bring Americans together. Not even the most deluded Marxists among us are still clinging to that claptrap, but the human animal is resilient and clever, and the Liberal thinkers, as well as the simple minded, are looking desperately for...

He was immediately lauded as the ‘future’ of the Marxists in America. I had him pegged as an empty suit back then. Watching his ‘seamless’ rise to political prominence was suspicious to begin with.

To counter the economic malaise, benchmark interest rates are close to zero in the U.S. and Japan and are a record low 0.75 percent in Europe.

    Rather than try to follow each and every poll result, an impossible task even in midterm years, look at a few persuasive election numbers. According to a Rasmussen, Indiana poll, Mitt Romney currently holds a 52-43 lead over Barack Obama. In 2008, Obama edged John McCain by 1 point. So Romney has turned the vote around by 10 points. This means that Republicans who undoubtedly stayed home in 2008 are NOT going to miss the opportunity to throw Obama from the White House. And it’s a cinch that any number of Democrats who voted for Obama the first time around...

    Welcome to a magical world in which the scientific challenges to green energy have been resolved and renewable energy makes economic sense for the United States. Even in such a highly theoretical country, it is unlikely that green energy projects would make much headway due to a ‘green versus green’ regulatory structure where local environmentalist groups battle alternative energy projects, contend two authors in a recent Heritage Foundation presentation of their new book. “Most of the research for this was funded actually by the Department of Energy in a 2010 grant to look at [alternative] energy,” says Ryan M.

    Before the cable news network called MSNBC moved to the sexually suggestive tagline of 'Lean Forward', it used to be the known as 'The Place for Politics.' But in the election cycles beginning with the 2008 presidential race, the channel's slogan has clearly 'evolved' to one that solidifies itself as 'The Place for Master Race Baiting.' There are race baiters out there in the media world, but clearly the masters of it primarily reside at MSNBC. They include the likes of Toure Neblett, Melissa Harris-Perry, Rachel Maddow, Ed Schultz, Lawrence O'Donnell and of course the queen bee of the master...

    Every now and then an email comes my way warning about the day when the government unleashes the military against its own citizens. This day isn't likely to come because for one thing the current regime is not particularly fond of the military. The Obama Administration isn't inflicting massive cuts on the military, cutting their health care and pushing veteran officers out the door because it likes the military as an institution. It doesn't. And it won't until it remakes it into a fully politically correct institution dedicated to promoting tolerance and fighting global warming. Progress has been made on...

    The Daily Caller ^ | November 3, 2012 | David Martosko
    In a two-page Oct. 29 contract, the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) local 1049 demanded union dues, pay hikes and benefit contributions from Florida electric utilities before its workers would be permitted to help reconnect power to Long Island communities. The demand came as Hurricane Sandy was bearing down on the Northeastern United States, stranding tens of millions without electricity. The “Letter of Assent,” which The Daily Caller obtained from the Florida Municipal Electric Association, demanded 11 separate financial commitments from municipal power companies and electrical cooperatives in the Sunshine State. The agreement, for any utility that decided to...

    Are you better off today than four years ago? - By: Larry Walker, Jr. -According to the latest report from the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the official unemployment rate for all Americans rose by 1.3% since Barack Obama took office. But over the same period, the unemployment rate for Black Americans jumped by 10.9%, and the number of unemployed Black Americans climbed by 19.1%. So are we better off than we were four years ago? You might be, but the Black Community as a whole definitely is not. So will 90% of Blacks vote to re-elect Obama anyway? You betcha,...

    Ok--I went to the West Chester Rally last night. I had been wanting to go to one of the rallies for months now. I ALMOST went to the Lebanon Rally a few weeks ago--I used to live in Lebanon and still have a storage garage VERY close to the Golden Lamb-but it did not work out. Same with the Kettering Rally on Tuesday--had to work. and so on. But when I heard that there was going to be a rally in W.C., about 12 miles from my house or less...on a Friday night--I decided i WAS going. So I got...

    Coming off the heels of some high profile cases of Obama supporters being encouraged to cast multiple ballots, it appears to be spreading. Off of twitter, we've found another disturbingly similar case. It now appears to be a trend that people have been voting (or at least trying to) vote twice. RT @randomgrl bit.ly/SIsQ5yI've read about voter fraud but it landed on my parents' doorsteps today, #NC, Phone number included! — MissStaci (@swaddle24) November 4, 2012

    32 Years from Full-Employment- By: Larry Walker, Jr. - In the fairest sense, the U.S. Jobs Deficit has improved by an average of 30,000 jobs per month since January 1, 2011. And although this may be good enough for indifferent Obama loyalists, what it really means is that based on Barack Obama’s very best job creation averages to date, full employment is still another 32 years away. Based on yesterday’s Employment Situation Report, 171,000 nonfarm jobs were added in the month of October. However, since the U.S. needs to add a minimum of 320,850 jobs each and every month...

    The Democratic Party has undergone many a migration over the centuries; it’s unrecognizable from the party originally started by Madison and Jefferson to oppose President Washington’s economic agenda. From its inception, though, one thing has never changed: the Democratic Party has always been, in some way, the pro-slavery party. Defender of slavery for the first century, then the opponent of reconstruction after the Civil War, the Democratic Party has always been a supporter of the elites, and in some way a supporter of the oppression of some group -sometimes the Blacks, sometimes the Asians, sometimes Catholics, sometimes Native Americans. This...

    Isn't it convenient that some CIA "informants" have come forth, five days before the election, for nearly identical stories by The WaPo and the NYT's regarding the Benghazi coverup? Mighty convenient: So what’s going on here? The national-security staff in the Obama White House has a standard operating procedure. If a military action, such as killing bin Laden, succeeds, then immediately leak selected details to shape the narrative to the political advantage of Mr. Obama. If the action is botched, as in Benghazi, then say nothing and tell the quiescent press that there is no story worth pursuing. If questions...
