    Last night at the premier of Hating Breitbart in Washington DC, FOX News contributor and Huffington Post writer Ryan Clayton was escorted from the theater. ... This was after he got up and started screaming in the middle of the film. ... Far left activist Ryan Clayton has appeared several times on FOX News. ... Ryan Clayton actually appears in the Hating Breitbart documentary where he talks about the need for civil discourse in society… And then is seen viciously attacking Andrew Breitbart. Unreal.

    Remember when President Barack Obama was likable? Once upon a time the public viewed the incumbent more favorably than his challenger by large margins. These days Obama’s favorable and unfavorable ratings are similar to Mitt Romney’s. The televised debates have unveiled the current administration as alternately listless, manic, angry, soporific, rude, bullying, aloof, and thin-skinned. Americans who have just begun to tune into the election are seeing the president unmediated. They no longer are looking at him through the scrim of fawning press, majestic settings, and roaring crowds. And they are discovering that Obama is not so likable at all....

    DANVILLE — While Republicans described Vice President Joe Biden as being overly aggressive during Thursday night’s debate, Biden’s son chalked it up to his day “enjoying himself” and trying to correct the record. Beau Biden, the attorney general of Delaware, spoke with Pure Politics’ Jacqueline Pitts and other reporters on spin alley after the vice presidential debate between Biden’s father and Republican candidate Paul Ryan. The younger Biden also dismissed critique from GOP surrogates, such as Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul, that his father smiled like a Cheshire cat. Beau Biden also took questions about his upbringing from a Norwegian reporter.

    Real Clear Religion ^ | October 19, 2012 | By Paul Kengor
    Think about this: there have been three presidential/vice-presidential debates thus far, and not one question about Barack Obama's historic advocacy of gay marriage. That seems a rather curious omission given the gravity of the issue. No other issue among the candidates is as transformative as this one. Name another issue that involves completely redefining something as ancient as the Garden of Eden. You can't. The question ought to be asked in the next debate, and, even more intriguingly, within the context of how the two presidential candidates' faith relates to their stance-similar to how Martha Raddatz asked Joe Biden and...

  • Romney gains a point post-debate in Gallup, up 7 (So much for Re-Energized Barack Obama)

    Hot Air ^ | October 18, 2012 | Ed Morrissey
    So much for Re-Energized Barack Obama. Gallup’s seven-day tracking poll picked up its first post-debate day of polling — and Mitt Romney added a point to his lead among likely voters. He’s now up 52-45. Obama did pick up a point among registered voters, but still trails by a point, 48/47. He also went from +4 to +6 on his job approval among all adults, now at 50/44, but that isn’t helping much among likely voters, as the rolling average shows. When Romney took a six-point lead in yesterday’s tracking poll results, Washington Post analyst Aaron Blake cautioned to wait...

    NORTH BETHESDA, MD – The Trail Political Action Committee (TPAC) is announcing today its strong endorsement of Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan for President and Vice President of the United States. TPAC was founded as the first national non-partisan political action committee dedicated solely to championing responsible off-highway vehicle recreation on designated roads, trails, and areas on public and private lands through the electoral and legislative processes. Early in President Barack Obama’s term he showed his passion for burdensome federal regulations when he appointed extreme leaders from the environment movement such as Carol Browner to be Director of the White...

    With Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney making his final preparations Tuesday for his second debate showdown with President Obama, his running mate Rep. Paul Ryan took to the stump in Virginia, telling supporters that Mr. Obama can’t run on his record and is relying on desperate attacks in hopes of winning a second term “by default.”

    Patriot Post ^ | 16 October, 2012 | Joan Fischer
    One of the incidental, and not often discussed, aspects of the presidential and vice presidential debates is the candidates' change in demeanor and content from one debate to the next. Those sometimes dramatic changes offer us a powerful glimpse into the real character of the candidate. Many pundits have been theorizing that Barack Obama will come out swinging in tonight's debate because he appeared so subdued and reticent in the last one. The public reacted badly to his subdued nature and reticence, and if there's anything that drives Barack Obama's personality and purported policy it is the public's perception of...

    According to a Romney aide not authorized to speak publicly about the event, the campaign followed its usual protocol for impromptu, on-the-road stops by candidates: A staffer was dispatched to the St. Vincent De Paul Society ahead of Ryan's visit Saturday morning and spoke with a woman in charge on site, who said that it would be fine for the congressman to stop by. The campaign did not contact Antal ahead of the visit. The woman on site told the Romney staffer that some of the volunteers had already left, but that most were happy to remain until Ryan arrived,...

    Did Paul Ryan prepare for Biden’s bluster? You bet, his aides say, and they credit Ted Olson, a former United States solicitor general, for coaching the Republican veep candidate. For weeks, the 72-year-old Olson played Biden during mock debates. During intense 90-minute sessions, Olson mimicked every mannerism of the vice president, from his hand gestures to his sneer.

    The Other McCain ^ | October 15, 2012 | Robert Stacy McCain
    Why is Obama still leading Mitt Romney in Ohio, but trailing in Florida? This puzzle might be explained by the early blitz of attack ads the Obama campaign laid down against Romney in Ohio back in May and June, which created a sort of “opinion deficit” that Romney has had to try to make up during the past four months. Yet Obama also hit Mitt early in Florida, and Romney has bounced back pretty strong there in the past two weeks. Is it Libya? And is it possible that the deadly Bungle in Benghazi has raised concerns about the administration’s...

    Pajamas Media ^ | 10/15/2012 | Tom Blumer
    At the first presidential debate [1] on October 3, aka Barack Obama’s Denver Debacle, the president, when asked by moderator Jim Lehrer whether he saw a major difference between his position and that of Republican challenger Mitt Romney on Social Security, gave this response: “I suspect that, on Social Security, we’ve got a somewhat similar position. Social Security is structurally sound.” At last Thursday’s vice-presidential debate [2], incumbent Joe Biden, who probably set new all-time debate records [3] for rude, obnoxious, interrupting, and inappropriate behavior, clearly believed he was scoring political points — and unfortunately probably did — when he...

    American Thinker ^ | October 15, 2012 | Selwyn Duke
    When Joe Biden was asked about abortion in the vice-presidential debate last Thursday, he replied with what, in part, has become boilerplate. "I accept my church's position on abortion..." he said. "Life begins at conception; that's the church's judgment. I accept it in my personal life; I just refuse to impose that on others, unlike my friend here, the congressman [Paul Ryan]." The personally-opposed, no-values-imposed (PONVI) argument is nothing new. For instance, consider the following version of a typical pro-abortion appeal: If each person will only agree to mind his own business, and leave his neighbors alone, there will be...

    Over the next few days, news media and Republicans will share video snippets of Thursday night's vice presidential debate. Voters will get an extra helping of Vice President Joe Biden chuckling, interrupting, laughing, mugging, smirking and otherwise behaving completely inappropriately. What Team Obama described as "just Joe being Joe" steadily devolved into Joe just being creepy. A CNN poll showed Rep. Paul Ryan winning the debate within the margin of error. A CBS News poll of uncommitted voters reported that 50 percent thought Biden won; 31 percent thought Ryan won; and 19 percent judged the debate a tie. But I...
