Could Obama Lose Home
State Of Illinois?

Campaign 2012: When an incumbent Democratic president is virtually tied in a congressional district he carried by high double digits in 2008, and is losing in the suburbs of his hometown, there could be trouble brewing. In August, a poll by the Joliet, Ill.-based polling firm of McKeon and Associates, found President Obama leading challenger Mitt Romney in Cook County, which includes Chicago and its suburbs, by a 12-point margin 49-37. That would seem to be a comfortable edge, but it is significantly smaller than traditional margins needed to outweigh

Anderson Cooper calls out
Romney’s ’180′ on ’360′
The Daily Caller, by Gregg Re    Original Article

In the “Keeping Them Honest” segment of his show “Anderson Cooper 360,” an incredulous Anderson Cooper on Friday accused Republican nominee Mitt Romney of pulling a “stunning 180,” suggesting the former Massachusetts governor had turned precisely half as much as Cooper does in a typical television broadcast in an effort to appear more moderate to undecided voters. “Clearly, in a campaign with hundreds, if not thousands of speeches … now and then, you’re going to say something that doesn’t come out right. In this case, I said something that’s just completely wrong,” Romney told Fox News’ Sean Hannity

The Obama campaign has been reeling since losing the first Presidential debate of this election cycle in front of 67 million viewers. They've tried--and thus far failed--to craft a narrative to explain away the debacle in Denver. Previously, we reported to you that Obama Senior Advisor David Plouffe, who ran the President's successful 2008 campaign, (falsely) accused Mitt Romney of lying. In a rare comedic moment from the typically robotic former Vice President Al Gore, he suggested on Current TV that the Mile High City's altitude was the reason Obama was low on energy and

The House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform has subpoenaed the leading security official at U.S. consulate in Libya for a upcoming hearing, an attempt to learn more details about the deadly terror attack last month on the compound. The committee, led by California Republican Rep. Darrell Issa, has issued a subpoena to Utah Army National Guard Green Beret Lt. Col. Andy Wood, Fox News learned Saturday. Wood led a 16-member Special Forces site security team responsible for protecting U.S. personnel at the consulate in Benghazi, Libya.

President Obama's star-studded fundraising concert Sunday at Nokia Theater -- with the likes of Jon Bon Jovi, Jennifer Hudson, Stevie Wonder and Katy Perry -- is expected to snarl traffic in the area. The president is expected to arrive Sunday to attend several functions, Los Angeles police said in a statement. Details were not available, but police said his motorcade would move through the Westside on Sunday afternoon, with temporary street closures. In late afternoon, the motorcade will travel to downtown Los Angeles for more events, with potential brief closures along the 10 Freeway and streets

Production of electric

A new Norwegian study, “Comparative Environmental Life Cycle Assessment of Conventional and Electric Vehicles” published in the Journal of Industrial Ecology (full paper here) found that the “use phase” of electric vehicles (EVs) “powered by the present European electricity mix offers a 10% to 24% decrease in global warming potential (GWP) relative to conventional diesel or gasoline vehicles assuming lifetimes of 150,000 km. However, EVs exhibit the potential for significant increases in human toxicity, freshwater eco-toxicity, freshwater eutrophication, and metal depletion impacts, largely emanating from the vehicle supply chain.” The authors call that “problem shifting.”

Obama's Other Spin Doctor

President Obama employs advisers, strategists, speechwriters. But here's one job that sounds as if it might be the most fun: Presidential DJ. Instead of spinning speeches and debates, these guys spin music to keep up the energy at campaign events, receptions and fundraisers. DJ Cassidy, who has been employed by the president since 2009, was first hired to play at the mid-Atlantic inaugural ball. Since the inauguration, he has spun for the president a number of times. He was in charge of the playlist at Obama's 50th birthday bash, a White House dance party, a Gen44 reception

Hi, everybody. Four years after the worst economic crisis of our lifetimes, we’re seeing signs that, as a nation, we’re moving forward again. After losing about 800,000 jobs a month when I took office, our businesses have now added 5.2 million new jobs over the past two and a half years. And on Friday, we learned that the unemployment rate is now at its lowest level since I took office.

A few streets from the scene of the September 11 attacks that he hailed as "a towering day in history", Abu Hamza was in a New York courtroom on Saturday night facing terrorist charges. The one-eyed Islamic preacher appeared in the dock minus the hook that he has used since his hands were blown off by a bomb after US officials ordered it to be removed them for security reasons. He stood in the dock, the stumps of his arms protruding from a navy blue jumpsuit.

Orlando, Fla. - Ann Romney surprised volunteers at a Victory Center here this morning, popping in with two pizza pies in hand to cheers of shock and awe. “We appreciate all the work you’re doing, all the help you’re giving us and how important this state is to us, and how important this Florida election is for all of you, and I hope you’re having a great time making the phone calls,” Romney said, standing next to a row of people making phone calls on behalf of her husband’s campaign.

A North Korean soldier has killed two of his superiors and defected to South Korea across the countries' heavily armed border in a rare crossing that prompted South Korean troops to immediately beef up their border patrol, officials said. The soldier shot his platoon and squad leaders before crossing the western side of the Demilitarised Zone at around noon, a Defense Ministry official said, citing the soldier's statement after he was taken into custody by South Korean border guards. (Snip) He said South Korean guards heard six gunshots before the North Korean soldier crossed the border. He also said the

Conservatives attending CPAC Colorado were already excited about Mitt Romney’s debate performance, but a surprise visit from the candidate boosted their spirits even further. Conference attendees grew curious after spotting Secret Service agents prior to the panel that was to include four of the Romney sons. A smiling Mitt Romney joined the stage from behind the curtain, bringing the audience to their feet. While many in the media suggested that Romney pivoted to the center during the debate, conservatives I talked to at the conference didn’t seem to notice.

A suspected Islamic terrorist was shot dead by French police in front of his veiled wife and their young child today. The man, in his 30s, was gunned down after firing a .357 Magnum revolver as armed officers swarmed into his house in the eastern city of Strasbourg. Seven others, including another gunman in Paris, were arrested during a nationwide anti-terrorist operation. All were suspected of being involved in an attack on a Jewish shop in which one person was slightly injured last month. The extreme violence used by the authorities in the face of Muslim extremism was praised

Mitt Romney's commanding performance in Wednesday night's first presidential debate has started to yield results. The Republican candidate has raised $12million in online donations over the last couple of days, and has also received a boost in some polls. The news comes as Barack Obama's lacklustre showing continues to be mocked by top comedians - even those who are strong supporters of the President. Mr Romney's campaign took in a donation haul of $12million via his website in just 48 hours after the conclusion of the debate in Denver, according to the Wall Street Journal.

Mitt Romney leads President Barack Obama in a Colorado opinion survey conducted after Wednesday's presidential debate at the University of Denver. The poll by Florida research firm Gravis Marketing of likely Colorado voters, conducted Oct. 3-4, shows Republican Romney favored by 49.4 percent and Democrat Obama by 45.9 percent, a difference of 3.5 percentage points. It's a reversal of the result of Gravis' latest pre-debate poll of Coloradans, conducted Sept. 25, that showed a 4.7-point advantage for Obama.

Mr Osborne needs some good headlines this week--and that means tax cuts. It’s that time of year again. The leaves are turning, the breezes are freshening--and we are all queuing up to give advice to David Cameron for party conference. It’s a sign of a leadership in trouble when everybody and his dog feels qualified to offer counsel to the man in charge, which is why there has been a notable drop in the volunteer adviser army clamouring for the ears of Ed Miliband and Mitt Romney in the past week. And that brings me to a

'No-Bama' hanging chair: Is it

Seattle - If a chair hangs in a tree, does it represent murder? The debate on whether lawn chairs with the president's name on them and hanging from trees are innocent references to Clint Eastwood's famous "empty chair" rant at the Republican National Convention -- or symbolic lynchings of America’s first African American president -- now spans the country. A white plastic chair suspended above a yard in Camas, Wash., is the latest exhibit. Like the others before it, including in Austin, Texas, and Centreville, Va., the chair is marked "No-Bama." Next to it, a large chalkboard says: "Are you

The email was sent to Ambassador Chris Stevens four months before his death, telling him that Washington was withdrawing a DC-3 aircraft used by the special forces team assigned to the embassy in Tripoli. The State Department said it had turned down the request in May because commercial flights had resumed in Libya, adding that there was no evidence the aircraft would have prevented the four American deaths during the September 11 attack on the consulate. However, the leaked memo, obtained by ABC News, will give impetus to Republican claims that Hillary Clinton’s department failed to provide sufficient aid

The politically incorrect rapper Snoop Dog put his two cents in the heated national debate leading up to the November election, posting online a foul-mouthed yet funny list of reasons why he would vote for Barack Obama over Mitt Romney. The 40-year-old hip hop-turned-reggae artist, who had recently changed his name to Snoop Lion, posted a photo of the handwritten list originally created by @DragonflyJonez on Friday. The number one justification for not voting for the Republican candidate is that ‘He is a white n**ga,’ followed by: ‘He looks like he says 'n**ga' all the time.’

Washington - CBS News has learned that congressional investigators have issued a subpoena to a former top security official at the US mission in Libya. The official is Lt. Col. Andy Wood, a Utah National Guard Army Green Beret who headed up a Special Forces "Site Security Team" in Libya. The subpoena compels Lt. Col. Wood to appear at a House Oversight Committee hearing next week that will examine security decisions leading up to the Sept. 11 Muslim extremist terror assault on the U.S. compound at Benghazi.

A delegation of House Democrats is urging President Barack Obama’s administration to extend an exemption on Iran sanctions—a move that could allow certain groups linked to terrorism to benefit from American philanthropic donations, experts say. Twelve lawmakers, including Muslim Rep. Keith Ellison (D., Minn.), petitioned the Obama administration Thursday to extend a temporary waiver permitting various organizations and individuals to skirt U.S. sanctions on Iran. The waiver, set to expire Oct. 5, enabled American-based nonprofit groups to expedite the “donation of funds” and shipment of “humanitarian relief” to Iranian charities that are purportedly helping their citizens recover from a deadly

The first presidential debate of 2012 is now behind us. The reviews suggest that many were surprised at how well Mitt Romney did and how weakly President Obama performed. (Snip) Romney's comments in the debate were designed to have people rethink that assessment and reverse the trend. He said that the status quo "is not going to cut it" and talked of the need to find a "new path." He added that "under the president's policies, middle-income Americans have been buried. They're just being crushed. Middle-income Americans have seen their income come down by $4,300. This is a tax in

Op ed: Eat less salt,

Bottled water is everywhere — in backpacks, on desks, in cars. When I was younger, no one carried water unless they were going hiking. Why the demand for bottled water now? I have a theory. Americans eat about twice the salt they did three to four decades ago. Most of it is hidden in all the canned, boxed, packaged and processed foods we open at home and eat in restaurants. Eating excess salt makes you thirsty and causes your body to hold more water. It’s like filling up a water balloon. As your body holds

A federal judge ordered the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Agency to begin displaying controversial anti-jihad advertisements beginning Monday in Washington DC, The Washington Post reported on Saturday. The decision came Friday, in a one-page ruling by US District Judge Rosemary Collyer, granting an injunction to the American Freedom Defense Initiative (AFDI) that sought to force Metro to display provocative posters in four stations, the Washington Post reported, even though the transit agency has worried the ads might incite violence. The posters were scheduled to be displayed for a month starting Sept. 24, but were delayed until the court decision.
