Romney praises Lehrer,
denies using debate cheat sheet

Daily Caller [Washington DC], by Gregg Re

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 10/6/2012 10:19:01 PM

Joined by his wife Ann at a rally in Florida late Friday, Republican nominee Mitt Romney sounded a particularly gentle tone, pausing variously to defend embattled presidential debate moderator Jim Lehrer, casually dismiss bitter accusations circulating online that he used a cheat sheet during the Wednesday night debate, and publicly reflect on the recent deaths of several close friends. Lehrer, a PBS veteran who has moderated a dozen presidential debates, has taken heat from pundits and late-night talk show hosts for offering broad questions and failing to enforce the Denver debate’s time restrictions.

Has Lehrer washed Mitt's clete marks off his back and rear end yet?

Come on now let's put this column in perspective. We all realize that Jim Lehrer did not assist Pres. Obama. On the other hand he did not assist Gov. Romney. He moderated the debate in a less invasive authority than expected.

President Obama appeared to be, I use the word again appeared to be ignorant of his policies. It is could be that he just did not prepare for the debate. Or it could be as President Clinton said in the past "this guy Obama a few years ago, would be bringing us coffee, with his main question" do you want cream or sugar with your coffee and of".

I just watched the debate for the second time via DVR. Romney was direct, had the facts, rebutted Obama when he needed to, had a sunny demeanor, looked squarely at Obama and then at Lehrer.
Obama had just talking points, and often his comments were all over the place, and not connected to anything.
Obama seldom challenged Romney, and totallly forgot all the earlier criticisms of Romney - 47 percent, Bain, etc etc.
He really did not prepare while Mitt certainly did.
I don't see how Obama can come up to speed by the next debate. And with foreign policy, he has none, so Mitt should really hammer him with FP.

Read before posting, please.
Especially the part about Romney writing the 14 yr old boy's will.

We heard it before; but its a good reminder.

Can u picture The Won doing that? Not me.

As a sidebar = Geraldo is on FOX. He talked to Senator Isakson of GA, who is seeking more information from the Administration on the Libya fiasco. Administration is stonewalling.

Hopefully Romney will clean Obama's clock and hold him responsible. We should.

Mitt did a rally in Apopka outside of Orlando) right after this and I was there along with 10,000++++ people. He told these stories there also. A lot of cheering when he talked about coal and pipelines. He also gave a shout-out to all vets attending- had them raise their hands while we all cheered. I never saw that at one of Barry's rallies.

Democrats thought Lehrer was fine, until now.

Democrats thought Obama was brillant, until now.

Had to cast doubt about "cheating", the real Mitt didn't show up, or some othere excuse.

Someone said that Romney outClintoned Clinton in presenting these personal stories. I would disagree with #2, Lehrer did help Obozo by giving him some leading questions to get him focused on what he was supposed to be saying.

The idea that anyone could utilize a cheat sheet in a debate like this and pull up any of the hundreds of facts you'd need at a second's notice, with the camera firmly affixed to your every move, is more proof of the delusional idiocy of the liberal mind.

Next thing, the MSM is going to start complaint that Romney had on his secret "decoder ring".

Obama is a loser, Romney is a winner. If you can't see that, you're a delusional lib.

The left wants to prove affirmative action works,that's why they stick so hard to Obama.The reason there's no records of Obama in college is because there are no records. This was probably the biggest AA skate job in history.Does anybody really believe that Obama has a degree in Constitutional Law?

Ivy League schools were eager as hell to prove they weren't racists and the protests and sit ins put them on the spot.They'd sell their soul to get the activists off their backs.It's really the same reason Elizabeth Warren skated her way through under the guise of being native American.

So Obama is used to getting by and being loved based on his race. The whole idea of winning is to make white people feel guilty about not voting for him.

The problem Obama's running into is America is a humungous paradigm where people are used to things being a certain way.People will allow tinkering around the edges but Obama has gone well beyond that under the belief that his race will cover his back no matter what he does.

Nationalizing healthcare has always been a toxic issue and his arrogance of ramming it through anyway, brought him a lot of bad will and his approvals have been in the tank ever since.The people who approve of Obamacare see themselves getting a carve out on paying for it.

Book: White House scrambled
after Joe Biden´s gay marriage comments
Politico, by Edward-Isaac Dovere    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 4/16/2014 11:18:17 PM     Post Reply
Vice President Joe Biden really did get ahead of President Barack Obama on accepting gay marriage in 2012 — and the White House really wasn’t happy about it, despite the two leaders’ many attempts to claim otherwise. That’s the story laid out in Jo Becker’s new book, “Forcing the Spring,” which documents the past few years of successful efforts to expand the legalization of gay marriage, according to an advance copy obtained by POLITICO. Speculation that Biden’s comments on “Meet the Press” in May 2012 were meant as a trial balloon, Becker writes, came from people “not privy to the




Former US president joins

WASHINGTON — Former President Jimmy Carter joined fellow Nobel laureates Wednesday in opposing Keystone XL, insisting that approving the pipeline would trigger “more climate upheaval” around the globe. In an open letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, Carter and the nine other Nobel Peace Prize winners bluntly warned the leaders: “Your decision on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline will define your climate legacy.” The missive, published as an advertisement in Politico, represents the first time Carter has taken a position on the $5.4 billion project and makes him the first former president to come

President Obama said Wednesday that Russia realizes the U.S. military is “significantly superior” to its own and does not want war with the United States. Asked in an interview with CBS News about a Russian fighter buzzing a U.S. Navy ship in the Black Sea on Saturday, Obama said, “They’re not interested in any kind of military confrontation with us, understanding that our conventional forces are significantly superior to the Russians.” Obama accused Russian President Vladimir Putin of being behind uprisings in Ukraine in which government buildings have been taken over. Ukraine’s government has launched an operation against the separatists

AUSTIN, Tex. — The last nine months of Rick Perry’s tenure as the longest-serving governor of Texas were supposed to be a political victory lap. Greg Abbott, the Republican state attorney general, and Wendy Davis, the Democratic state senator, both of whom are vying to replace Mr. Perry, have been sparring across Texas. Meanwhile Mr. Perry has been traveling the country and the world promoting the robust Texas economy and bolstering his national profile as he considers another run for president in 2016.

9/11 Victim Families: Obama

GUANTANAMO BAY NAVAL BASE—Victims of the 9/11 terror attacks expressed shock that the FBI may be meddling in the hearings here, and some speculated that it is part of an effort by the Obama administration to completely derail the hearings and force them into federal court stateside. Families of those killed in the 9/11 terror attacks traveled here with the intent of watching their family members’ accused killers face justice. However, many say they were horrified earlier this week when pre-trial hearings came to a halt over revelations that the FBI had launched an investigation into the accused terrorist’s defense

Earlier today, Judicial Watch made public a batch of documents that it received from the IRS in response to a Freedom of Information Act request. The documents consists of a series of emails relating to the IRS’s treatment of applications for 501(c)(4) status from “Tea Party” or otherwise conservative organizations. I am still working my way through the emails, but have a few preliminary observations. First, the most significant ones I have seen so far have already been widely discussed. The email below documents a call from the Department of Justice about whether non-profits that “lied” about doing political activity

On the Wednesday, April 16, PoliticsNation on MSNBC, far left host Al Sharpton berated what he viewed as "extreme" and "intolerant radical views" of Republican candidates for U.S. Senate in Mississippi and North Carolina as he highlighted comments that he considered "offensive." Guest Jonathan Capehart of the Washington Post went so far as to hyperbolically suggest that the GOP is "going to cease to exist" unless Republican Party leaders who are "aghast at the far-right extremists" do not react against these candidates. Below is a transcript of the relevant portion of the Wednesday, April 16, PoliticsNation on MSNBC: AL SHARPTON:

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box. Indeed Kelly all but genuflected in front of this woman. Kept her on thru

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history. Whatever the burning political question of the day, millions of Americans have relished the opportunity to tune into Rush’s program, knowing that he would quickly take that hot potato, throw a few gallons of verbal kerosene into the mix and elevate the matter into a five alarm fire with a just a few well-chosen words spoken in the style only Rush Limbaugh could

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes. Connery just has to show up on time. In economics you devalue a currency by printing too much of it. In film you

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as
