    "No offense meant to the honored former governor of Massachusetts. I mean, he may have been a horrible candidate, but he was a decent man. Of course, after Dukakis, Democrats determined that decency didn't win presidential elections. Massachusetts ceded to Arkansas and the rest, as they say, is history." Source_____________________________________________________ Mitt Romney and his family are decent people - hard working Americans who love this country. They sought and won the primary baton - tirelessly campaigned to the bitter end of the campaign. I'll boil my post-election analysis down to this: We need to elect a candidate that, besides running...

    Weekly Standard ^ | November 5, 2012 issue | JOHN MCCORMACK
    Speaking at a Tea Party rally on a sunny Saturday in June in southeastern Wisconsin, Paul Ryan confidently predicted Governor Scott Walker would win the recall election he was facing that coming Tuesday, June 5. “On Tuesday, we save Wisconsin,” Ryan said to applause from the crowd of 4,000. “And on November 6, Wisconsin saves America.” Ryan’s prediction of a Walker victory wasn’t very bold. The governor’s budget reforms had been the subject of intense debate for over a year, and every public poll taken during the final month before the election showed Walker clocking in at or above 50...

    Romney’s political director says his team is more focused on getting people less inclined to vote to send in absentee ballots or go to the polls—and is successfully cutting the president’s lead among early voters.Rich Beeson, political director of the Romney campaign, is not moved by reports of a huge “ground game” advantage on the part of the Obama campaign. “The only metric anyone has seen is the number of offices and the number of staff on the ground,” Beeson said. “In Virginia, Obama has 80 offices, we have 26,” he said by way of example. “In Florida the Obama...

    The Washington Examiner ^ | October 29, 2012 | Joel Gehrke
    Mitt Romney’s super PAC is running ads in Pennsylvania, a traditional Democratic stronghold, which has forced the Obama campaign to spend money defending that state even as it denies that the race there could be close. “This morning, Restore Our Future decided to go up in Pennsylvania, [so] we’re going to go up as well,” Obama campaign manager Jim Messina said. “They are not close in Pennsylvania — we are going to win Pennsylvania — but we’re not taking anything for granted.” The spin accompanying that revelation was part-and-parcel with the rest of the conference call, which Messina hosted along...

    There's no shortage of their kind in the politically bluest parts of California. Liberals so freaked out about the prospect of President Obama losing his re-election bid that they can't sleep at night. Can't talk about anything else. Can't stop parsing the latest polls. David Plouffe, one of President Obama's top campaign strategists, has a word for supporters he feels are needlessly fretful: bed wetters. "Oh, I think I'm worse than that," Kay Edelman said. For the past several weeks, the 60-year-old San Francisco resident has frequently bolted awake in the middle of the night, in "a panic attack," she...

    Miami Herald ^ | October 28, 2012 | Marc Caputo
    Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney is heading to the University of Miami on Wednesday, according to his campaign. The Romney visit will come just three days after a Miami Herald poll showed President Barack Obama’s numbers aren’t where they need to be in Miami-Dade, Florida’s most-populous county, if he wants to carry the Sunshine State. To win Florida, Obama needs a big lead in Miami-Dade, where Democrats outnumber Republicans by 15 percentage points, 44-29 percent. Obama won Miami-Dade by a 16-point margin in 2008. A Sunday Miami Herald poll, however, shows Obama is winning Miami-Dade by only 9 percentage points....

    CINCINNATI — Mitt Romney assumed the mantle of change agent here Thursday, promising over and over again to bring “big change” to the White House as he opened a two-day campaign swing across the critical battleground of Ohio. .....Although Romney’s crowd of about 3,000 was smaller than many of the other rallies he has staged this week, the throng packed inside a Cincinnati warehouse was electric. Every time Romney spoke of “big change” — a phrase he used at least a half-dozen times — his supporters’ screams were nearly deafening, a sign of the growing enthusiasm among Republicans.....

    BOCA RATON, Fla. — Mitt Romney crossed a major threshold early this week, moving above 50 percent in his favorability rating, according to the Real Clear Politics average of polls — and, for the first time in the campaign, he now leads President Obama on that measure. The Republican presidential nominee has clearly benefitted from the debates. He had a 44.5 percent favorability rating at the end of September, before the debates. But by Monday, when he and Mr. Obama faced off for the final debate of the campaign, Mr. Romney’s favorability average was up at 50.5 percent. “He’s did...

    Is there a limit to self-delusion? And if there is, what happens when the limit is exceeded? New York Times columnist Gail Collins began her column last week as follows, "When Democrats run into each other on elevators, they exchange glances and sigh. Or make little whimpering sounds." She went on to observe that "Democrats are going bipolar. Democrats spend all their waking hours thinking about the swing states. If Wisconsin starts looking wobbly, their day is ruined." It makes you wonder what their days are going to be like if Obama loses the actual election. Liberals are angry and...

    The daughter of a Latter Day Saints bishop and author of a book on Mitt Romney’s Mormonism says that she has concerns about a Romney presidency. Tricia Erickson, who is now a professing Christian after being involved in the LDS establishment for 21 years, stated in an article this week entitled The Obamney Twins that while she cannot support Barack Obama, she is unable to vote for Mitt Romney either. “To me, as a conservative, a Republican and a Christian, I cannot justify a vote for either one of the Obamney baby-killing, annihilators of the family, government healthcare mandated to...

    .........John Rukavina, 74, a Local 1 ironworker — who claims to have put up “every antenna and tower in Chicago since Marina Towers in 1974” — affixed a Romney banner as well as an American flag on the ABC antenna on Willis Tower minutes after it was completed Sept. 30. “The flag is a symbol — an old ironworker’s custom — which is hung if the job went well,” said Rukavina, who said he worked on the Sears Tower antenna in 1978. He’s also worked on the John Hancock Center and New York’s World Trade Center. “I promised my sister,...

    A great speech in Lebanon yesterday, as Ohio polls continue to narrow "About a week ago, I had a debate. ...and I did enjoy myself." With that opening line, Mitt Romney had a massive crowd of 11,000 people eating out of his hand. The huge attendance caused the audience to spill over its initial boundaries and through the streets surrounding the stage. It was the latest event for Romney, who's now put in a staggering 34 Ohio appearances in his bid to win the must-have state. The speech, which focuses on the greatness of our nation, is a breath of...

In reply, VicePresidentBiden said the charge was “malarkey.”“This congressman here cut embassy security in his budget by $300 million below what we asked for, No. 1. So much for the embassy security piece,” said Biden.The nugget of fact behind this charge is that as chairman of...

    Washington - A slew of battleground-state polls out Thursday shows a presidential race that has tightened in several key states, echoing national polls that show a bounce for Republican Mitt Romney after his strong debate performance Oct. 3.......All of these states went for Obama four years ago,and if Romney is to unseat the incumbent, he has to win most of them. So, he still has his work cut out for him. The debate Thursday night between Romney’s running mate,Rep. Paul Ryan(R) of Wisconsin, and Vice President Joe Biden is a critical step along the way. Typically,vice presidential debates don’t matter,...
