    Talking Points Memo ^ | 9/6/2012 | Eric Kleefeld
    Republicans signaled this week that they might have given up hope in two important swing states. TPM Slideshow: Romney Takes The Stage At The RNC The Romney campaign and conservative groups like Crossroads GPS have pulled TV ads in Michigan, Romney’s home state, according to the Detroit News. Nor are the campaign and super PACs running advertising in Pennsylvania, after unleashing a barrage there over the past five months. It is still possible for groups to purchase TV advertising in either state at a later date. The PollTracker Averages show President Obama ahead 48.9 percent to 45.4 percent in Michigan,...

    Campaigning in college classes is inappropriate: George W. Dent Jr.Published: Saturday, September 01, 2012, 9:05 AM By Plain Dealer guest columnist The Plain Dealer **SNIP** Recently a memorandum was sent by Professor Brian McHale to all instructors in the English Department at Ohio State University. The memorandum states that McHale, a distinguished professor of humanities, had "been in touch with a couple of organizers for the Obama campaign, who have asked me to pass along to all of you a request for access to your classes" in order to "make a pitch to your students about registering to vote." It...

    Call it "The Empty Chair Convention." Rick Klein, Senior Washington Editor of ABC News, just tweeted out this photo of the stage the Democrat convention will be held on (posted above). As you can see, Klein's photo reveals the screens that will serve as the television backdrop behind whoever's speaking -- and it looks to me as though the Democrats intend to show an artificial sea of faces in order to make the convention hall look a whole lot more fuller than it might be. If you look closely, they have three tiers of adoring, enraptured Obama-worshippers at the ready...
  • Clint Eastwood was right. Hollywood can be quietly, yet profoundly, conservative (whine)

    Telegraph - UK ^ | September 1, 2012 | Tim Stanley
    Clint Eastwood got one thing right during his senior moment at the Republican convention: Hollywood isn’t all liberal. The first time Clint gained serious press attention in national politics was 1972, when he was invited by President Richard Nixon to attend his nominating convention in Miami. Nixon was a movie buff who understood the power of Hollywood. In 72, he wanted to use specific celebrity endorsements to shape the way that the public understood him. He wanted Democrats like Frank Sinatra and Sammy Davis Jr to show that he was a centrist and he wanted Old Hollywood to evoke nostalgia...

Eisenhower...
  • Reddit Sleuths In Action: Highlight How Obama Answered A 'Planted' Question

    08/31/2012 1:33:42 PM PDT · by Gomez · 5 replies
    We were a bit disappointed in how President Obama handled his recent Reddit AMA, giving mostly canned politician's answers to a community that tends to expect a bit more human emotion. It was no Woody Harrelson debacle, but it did seem like a missed opportunity. And, now, some Redditors are suggesting that parts of it were actually stage. Some internet sleuthing pointed out that among the only 10 questions that Obama chose to answer (out of hundreds that were asked almost immediately) was one from someone who appears to have been planted by the administration. The evidence: Profile created mere...

    Mark Mazzetti's emails with the CIA expose the degradation of journalism that has lost the imperative to be a check to power The rightwing transparency group, Judicial Watch, released Tuesday a new batch of documents showing how eagerly the Obama administration shoveled information to Hollywood film-makers about the Bin Laden raid. Obama officials did so to enable the production of a politically beneficial pre-election film about that "heroic" killing, even as administration lawyers insisted to federal courts and media outlets that no disclosure was permissible because the raid was classified.Thanks to prior disclosures from Judicial Watch of documents it obtained...

    We should not forget that John Harris of the Politico, who asked the stupidest and most irrelevant questions of any moderator during the GOP Primary debates, is married to the former head of NARAL in Virginia. We should not forget that Jonathan Allen of the Politico once worked for Debbie Wasserman Schultz. We should not forget that Andy Barr of the Politico left the Politico to go work for the Democratic National Committee. We should not forget any of this because I do not believe it is any accident that today the Politico has a big story from John Harris...
  • Family Research Council poll of Missouri: Akin 45, McCaskill 42

    The Family Research Council poll was conducted by Wenzel Strategies from Aug. 27 to Aug. 28, testing 829 voters for a margin of error of plus or minus 3.38 percent. The sample was 32.7 percent Democrats, 34.1 percent Republicans and 33.2 percent independents. I don’t remotely believe that Akin is winning right now, but I also don’t believe that McCaskill’s double-digit margin will survive September. Hence Reince Priebus’s conundrum. Roy Blunt also said this morning that he still thinks Akin will quit, but I’m not sure he himself quite believes it. Supposedly people are leaning on Huckabee too to get...

    (snip) ....... They measured social tolerance by two variables: Gender-orientation tolerance, measured by whether respondents would agree to having gay persons speak in their community or teach in public schools, and whether they would oppose having homosexually themed books in the library. Racial tolerance, measured by responses regarding various racial and ethnic groups, including African-Americans, Hispanics, and Asian Americans. Eighty percent of the study respondents were Caucasian, LeRoux said. The researchers measured altruistic behavior by whether respondents said they had allowed a stranger to go ahead of them in line, carried a stranger's belongings, donated blood, given directions to a...

    GLAAD is criticizing a Utah NBC affiliate’s decision not to broadcast The New Normal this fall. "While audiences, critics and advertisers have all supported LGBT stories, KSL is demonstrating how deeply out of touch it is with the rest of the country,” the group's president says. Ryan Murphy and Ali Adler's new comedy, which tells the story of a single mother who becomes a surrogate for a same-sex couple, was deemed “inappropriate” by Salt Lake City-based KSL-TV. "Same-sex families are a beloved part of American television thanks to shows like Modern Family, Glee and Grey’s Anatomy," GLAAD president Herndon Graddick...

    Tonight, while my college-aged daughter was out, a helpful man with a clipboard came to the door asking for her by name. "Oh, Ho," says I, "She's out at the moment. Whom can I tell her called to see her?" "I'm with the Committee to re-elect the Presid-" he said before being cut off by my absolute and outright laughter. He got off lucky...If he actually HAD spoken with her, she would have given him a LENGTHY laundry list of the economic failings, policy shortcomings, and wild spendthrift madness that the past three years has brought.

    I smell a rat. Today’s Chicago Sun-Times story Getting a gun in Chicago quick and easy strikes me as confabulation. “Want to know how to get a gun? Just ask Chris. The skinny teen attends high school in Chicago and is a talented athlete. But he’s also a notorious gunslinger. As a shooter in a South Side gang, he can get his hands on a gun as quick as you can get a burger at a fast-food restaurant.” Hyperbole for sure.

    Rasmussen ^ | Tuesday, August 21, 2012 | Froma Harrop
    Paul Ryan has bold economic ideas. Or maybe he doesn't. It's really hard to know what Mitt Romney's VP pick thinks, since his budget plan includes Obamacare's $716 billion in Medicare savings over 10 years, but his election plan has him saying he would restore those spending cuts. Romney is accusing president Obama of "robbing" that money from today's beneficiaries. Let's set the confusion aside for a moment and look at where the projected cuts would be made. First off, none of the savings comes from changing eligibility or benefits. The president's health care reforms actually add benefits to Medicare....

    Equipping U.S. embassies with the unlimited ability to show movies to residents and visitors over the next five years could cost taxpayers more than $1.5 million. The U.S. Department of State claims the expenditure is necessary since the U.S. uses "feature films as programming tools to support foreign policy objectives." State's Educational and Cultural Affairs Bureau awarded the sole-source contract to the Motion Picture Licensing Corp. (MPLC) , which it says is the only source that can provide a worldwide blanket-viewing license for 800 facilities. According to a Statement of Work that U.S. Trade & Aid Monitor located via routine...

    Dear Friend, I was outraged today when I saw a Washington Post article headlined “Three Polls Show Obama Widening Lead Over Romney.” One was a poll from FOX News that showed Obama 9 points ahead. The others were surveys by CNN and Reuters showing a 7 point Obama lead. NOT TRUE! Click Here to read the Washington Post article I am referring to. The real numbers, of likely voters are found in the Rasmussen Polls which had Romney ahead by three yesterday and four today. Gallup, which surveys registered voters (as opposed to likely voters) has the race tied at...

    One problem is that the trend toward Mr. Obama in national polls has hardly been uniform. The Gallup national tracking poll has shown a very flat race. And Rasmussen Reports had a swing toward Mr. Romney in its release on Thursday, with his pulling ahead by four points in its survey. Weekly tracking polls from Public Policy Polling and YouGov have also not shown especially good numbers for Mr. Obama lately. If there had really been a shift in the race of the magnitude that the Real Clear Politics average implies — it has Mr. Obama gaining three points on...
