    Mitt Romney gave President Barack Obama a much-deserved shellacking in the first Presidential debate held in Denver. The Republican nominee, who many conservatives were close to writing off, served ace after ace, while Obama just stood there and tried to hit the ball back, looking stunned by Romney’s strength and his own failure. After an hour and half “match,” it was clear Romney was the man with the plan and Obama the man with more promises. Heeding conservatives’ advice to go bold, Romney showed us his backbone, laid out his plan and cornered Obama on his failed record. Again and...

    Washington Times ^ | 08 Oct 2012 | McGlaughlin and Crabtree
    President Obama’s re-election campaign on Monday launched a pre-emptive strike ahead of Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney’s planned foreign policy address, arguing that Mr. Romney has failed the the commander-in-chief test on the global stage — in part by staking out positions to the right of former President George W. Bush. The Obama camp released a new television advertisement and issued a memo on Monday criticizing Mr. Romney’s bumpy overseas trip this summer as well as his response to the assaults on the U.S. diplomatic post in Libya — highlighting how a national security adviser to GOP Sen. John McCain’s...

    By record-high margin, debate watchers say Romney did better PRINCETON, NJ -- Registered voters' preferences for president are evenly split in the first three days of Gallup tracking since last Wednesday's presidential debate. In the three days prior to the debate, Barack Obama had a five-percentage-point edge among registered voters. Gallup typically reports voter presidential preferences in seven-day rolling averages; the latest such average as of Saturday interviewing shows Obama with an average three-point edge, 49% to 46%, among registered voters. This Sept. 30-Oct. 6 field period includes three days before the Oct. 3 debate, the night of the debate...

    Note: The author would like to thank the Psalmist, Switchfoot, and Samwise for inspiring this column.Back in May of 1999, I made a decision to leave the Democratic Party. It was an easy decision. I had been a Democrat for 11 years. I voted for Dukakis when I was a committed leftist. But, later, when I became a pro-life conservative, there was no room for me in the party. So I became a Republican and also joined the NRA. I've been a straight shooter ever since. Excuse me if that last line sounded heterosexist. I’m a work in regress. As...

    Monday, October 08, 2012 The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Monday shows Mitt Romney and President Obama each attracting support from 48% of voters nationwide. Two percent (2%) prefer some other candidate, and three percent (3%) are undecided. While there have been modest swings in recent months that have favored one candidate over the other, the overall picture is of a race that is both stable and very close. Over the past 100 days of tracking, Romney and Obama have been within two points of each other 72 times. Additionally, on 89 of those 100 days, the candidates...

    The earth moved in Denver last week. A chunk of realist landscape broke through the media’s gloomy, impressionist artwork, as Mitt Romney dominated Barrack Obama in the first presidential debate. All the king’s horses and all the king’s men insist one good performance by the challenger and one off night for the president don’t really change anything. But in fact, they change everything. The race is recast for several reasons: Everything voters believe—or have endlessly heard-- about the candidates was called into question. Romney’s dismantling of the president wasn’t just a win. The 90 minute encounter reintroduced the men in...

    It’s a given now that Mitt Romney performed brilliantly in the first presidential debate, but some less-than-obvious benefits are still emerging. Beyond predictable poll bounces and fund-raising jumps, an added gain is the dilemma Team Obama faces in trying to regroup after the shellacking. Desperately trying to change the storyline, all the president’s men immediately went into DEFCON attack mode. On the stump and in ads, they charged out of Denver calling Romney a liar and promised that a more combative president would show up the next time. It was a reaction designed to calm Obama’s left-wing base, which was...

    Mitt Romney will call for an escalation of the conflict in Syria by arming rebels with the heavy weapons needed to confront president Bashar al-Assad's tanks, helicopters and fighter jets. Romney is to make the proposal on Monday in what his campaign team has billed as a major foreign policy speech in Lexington, Virginia. In extracts published in advance, he opened up the prospect, if he becomes president, of a US-Iranian proxy war being fought in Syria. "Iran is sending arms to Assad because they know his downfall would be a strategic defeat for them. We should be working no...

    I originally thought that the story of Linda Morrison which will follow after the jump would be all about the Obama campaign completely misreading the situation surrounding a question asked of GOP vice-presidential nominee at a Clinton County, Iowa town hall forum. It turns out that it's actually biased reports from their good friends in the establishment press which led the overeager campaign to do something embarrassing. Here's how Shushannah Walshe at ABC News described the question Ryan was asked and the answer he gave (bolds are mine throughout this post): Paul Ryan Gets Asked for More Specifics, But This...

    In a previous blog, I wrote about 36 good reasons to defeat Obama in this election. Now is my chance to write 40 good reasons to elect Mitt Romney (now that we've seen the first debate). Yes, I see where Mitt is adjusting some of his positions, but I'm seeing more of what I want to see. See for yourself: 1. Romney is someone who has started a business, a business that specializes in business turnarounds. It's just what America needs. We need a turnaround specialist. 2. He is a typical Mormon: squeaky clean, doesn't drink alcohol, industrious, and salt-of-the-earth....

    I am going to take a break from promoting my just released book, The Catholic Tide Continues to Turn to write about another interest of mine; election polling and demographics in my home state of Ohio. Lately my dander has been raised more than once by polls which are totally inept in their sampling rational. This article will attempt to explain why at this point Governor Mitt Romney is in the driver’s seat in my home state. Full disclosure; I did not vote for Governor Romney in the GOP primary, my vote went to Senator Rick Santorum. Also until the...

    IN countries with parliamentary systems, political parties rarely lack for formal leadership. When the British Tories or Canadian Liberals are out of power, they have an official prime minister-in-waiting standing by, and a “shadow cabinet” as well. There’s jockeying for influence behind the scenes, but there’s always somebody out front who can claim to speak for the party, setting its agenda and making a case to the country as a whole. Not so in the United States. Here, parties in their out-of-power years tend to slip into low-grade civil wars, with rival camps inside Washington and various warlords — er,...

    Mitt Romney and the empty PODIUM: New Yorker magazine cover pokes fun at Obama's disaster debate (with apologies to Clint Eastwood) We had Clint Eastwood debating an empty chair that represented Barack Obama at the Republican convention. Now, the 'New Yorker' magazine is depicting the President as a debate podium with an empty chair behind it. Next week's cover carries an illustration entitled 'One on One' by Barry Blitt , who explains: 'This image seemed like a proper response to the first Presidential debate but I’m not sure I realised how hard it is to caricature furniture.' No one's there:...

    The Christian Coalition has gained attention over the past few decades with the “voter guides” it distributes to Evangelical Christians. Now, The Catholic Association has just released its own “voter guide” as part of the group’s effort to make “religious freedom” a 2012 campaign issue. The Catholic Association’s voter guide gives Republican Mitt Romney an over-all grade of “A+” and gives Democrat Barack Obama an “F”.The group is critical of the Obama Administration’s push to require Catholic institutions to cover contraceptives in employee health insurance plans.The Romney campaign hopes to capitalize with Catholics in Iowa who may be Democrats or...

    The biggest item with which Team Obama was able to come out swinging following last week's presidential debate (except for something about Mitt Romney being too "aggressive" and possibly trying to cheat on live television) was playing up their hilariously-contrived claim that Mitt Romney's plan for "$5 trillion in tax cuts for the wealthy must necessarily raise taxes on the middle class or increase the deficit." a claim with which Robert Samuelson took umbrage: To justify its $5 trillion figure — the estimated tax loss over a decade --- the Obama campaign had to cherry-pick Romney's proposal and the TPC...

    First, I don't know where to even send a suggestion like this. Any ideas? The ad: Big Bird walks past people protesting Romney's claim that PBS funding should be cut. Signs argue that without public funding, American children wouldn't experience Sesame Street. He goes into a parking deck, where he gets in a red Ferrari. As the engine roars, titles overlaying the screen would read: "Sesame Street receives [however much funding] a year from the federal government. In that same time, Sesame Street makes more than $50 million in toys and consumer sales." They could add a guy working in...
