Based on his commanding debate performance, Republican Mitt Romney has erased President Obama's lead in the most recent days to pull into a tie among registered voters nationally in a brand-new Gallup Tracking Poll. Gallup's standard tracking poll uses a seven-day rolling average, in this case, the night of the debate and three nights on either side. Obama enjoyed a four- to six-point lead during the three days before the Oct. 3 Denver debate. But in the three days after, that lead evaporated into a dead heat at 47% each.
Romney's status is probably better than even these figures suggest. I am increasingly confident that this election is Romney's to lose. And likewise, I feel that the Romney camp has the discipline, focus and guts to play offense for the next several weeks.
Did anyone else watch "Morning Joe". I by mistake had it on and I swear they were talking about Gallup giving Obama a significant lead. I turned it off, but now I think they were intentionally being dishonest, wow.
Oh, the ego harm! How dare anyone make The Empty Suit appear so stupid and uninformed!' .... But Obama knew what to do. He quickly ran down to Hollywood for a therapeutic massage to his self-esteem. The brilliance of starland's great minds and the availability of their open pocketbooks was enough to convince Obama that he is still walks on water.
After the obamanation-administration went after Gallup, all credibility in their polls, good or bad, is gone. Still with the "registered voters"? Seriously? According to gallup, the dear Leader will RETAIN his lead right up to Nov. 6 when he will be ousted, much like his hero, Hugo Chavez SHOULD have been!
Last summer on his $100 million family tour of Africa, Barack Obama hoped for a priceless photo op with Nelson Mandela, the ailing freedom pioneer who went from prison cell to the presidency of South Africa. Mandela´s family suggested that wouldn’t happen. So, the Obamas did a photo op in Mandela´s former prison cell. Which Obama’s White House quickly tweeted upon word of the icon´s passing at 95. [Skip] But Obama was also caught staring at television coverage of Mandela’s passing, which became Obama’s Photo of the Day.
You may have noticed over these past 2,501 days that Barack Obama likes to give speeches, sometimes two or more a day. It´s better than Oval Office work. And yesterday the poor guy gave a particularly revealing one. He´s so desperate now that he modestly likened ObamaCare to the suffrage struggle and civil rights. [Snip] But here´s the largest challenge for Obama´s ObamaCare: He must ensure 40% of all enrollees are under 35 and willing to pay huge premiums for coverage they really don´t need. In the scaled eyes of our nation´s community organizer, that´s a kind of civic patriotism.
As everyone knows, California is the la-de-dah, laid-back land of liberalism that´s been Barack Obama´s political ATM for six years. Hollywood stars have loved him, fronted multi-multi-million-dollar fundraisers for him. The most populous state (home to 12 of every 100 Americans) has a Democrat governor again, two female Democrat senators and a Democrat super-majority in the state legislature that has yet to find a problem it didn´t want government making worse at great cost. In presidential politics California has been trending Democratic since 1992. [Snip] Now comes a stunning new poll revealing Obama’s California base has fallen out of love.
Never let a crisis -- or tragedy -- go to waste. So, here we are now with a weakened ObamaNation building an organizing event around the awfulness in Newtown, where a 22-year-old nut-job killed 20 innocent youngsters and six adult caretakers. No horrified parent or adult watching Connecticut a year ago needs reminding of what a national gut-kick that was. President Obama, of course, went to Newtown to utter another empty vow.
So, Barack Hussein Obama can tell where Americans are from just by looking at their faces. Imagine if he also knew their funny foreign names or detected defective English. How would Obama react if someone determined his birthplace by looking at that face of his? And what evil or good dreams lurk within that obviously wily Chicagoan´s mind. You didn´t see much about this Obama statement in the mainstream media last week. With the ObamaCare disaster all cleaned up, its website humming perfectly and the U.S. economy now roaring strongly, Obama lit out for West Coast fundraising.
According to the Obama White House, the first family consumed a Thanksgiving dinner of turkey, honey-baked ham, cornbread stuffing, oyster stuffing, sweet potatoes, mashed potatoes, greens, green bean casserole, dinner rolls and macaroni and cheese. Then, the family washed all that down with nine kinds of pies: huckleberry, pecan, sweet potato, peach, apple, pumpkin, banana cream, coconut cream and chocolate cream. For years now First Lady Michelle Obama has been pushing her program called "Let´s Move!" for more exercise and better foods. But Gallup reports Americans prefer “Let’s Eat!”
Hello, I’m Senator Lindsey Graham of South Carolina. As we celebrate this Thanksgiving holiday, it’s important for us all to reflect on our many blessings. Family and friends immediately come to mind. But there are many Americans who will not be able to celebrate this holiday season at their home. Some are serving our nation overseas, thousands of miles away. And in their world, the creature comforts you and I take for granted -- things like running water and electricity -- are considered luxuries.
I have never been much of a conspiracy theorist. For me it was always Oswald by himself from the Texas School Book Depository and nothing in the intervening fifty years has disabused me of this notion. For the most part, I’m an Occam’s Razor kind of guy — the most obvious explanation is likely to be true. (Snip) To put it bluntly, Occam’s Razor has moved. Things that were once possibilities now seem almost certainties to me. Principal among those is that Obama’s academic records are perpetually unavailable for a reason — and that reason is most likely that they reveal
One of President Obama´s chief political assets has been his ability to excite young people like almost no politician in history. But the days of America´s youth fawning over the president are over. A new Harvard University Institute of Politics poll released Wednesday confirms what other surveys have shown in recent months: Millennials have soured on Obama so much this year that their opinion of him largely mirrors the American public´s. Even though Obama does not ever have to face another election, he should be worried about the findings for a couple of reasons, which we will dive into momentarily.
A stunning new study unveiled on Fox News´ Hannity finds that President Barack Obama’s White House calendar records just one face-to-face meeting between Obama and his Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Kathleen Sebelius in the more than three-and-a-half years leading up to the disastrous Obamacare launch. The startling statistic comes from a new Government Accountability Institute (GAI) analysis of Obama’s own official White House calendar, as well as the Politico presidential calendar, and raises new questions about Obama’s executive leadership and management throughout the implementation of his singular legislative achievement. More alarming still, the president’s schedule lists 277 private
[Video] President Obama on Wednesday declared that addressing income inequality would be the focus of “all” of the White House’s efforts “for the rest of my presidency.” In a sweeping address that touched on raising the minimum wage, investing in infrastructure and ending tax breaks for the wealthy, Obama warned that the American economy has become “profoundly unequal,” declaring economic mobility the “challenge of our time.” “The combined trends of increasing inequality and decreasing mobility pose a fundamental threat to the American dream, our way of life, and what we stand for around the globe,” he said in an hour-long
Just over two weeks ago, MSNBC host Martin Bashir delivered a harsh piece of commentary that culminated in the suggestion that someone should “s-h-i-t” in former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin‘s (R-AK) mouth. Bashir offered an abject apology on his next broadcast, but a chorus of critics continued to demand action against the host. After a reported “vacation” for the host earlier this week, Bashir announced, Wednesday afternoon, that MSNBC and Martin Bashir are parting ways. Here’s the statement from Martin Bashir, via email: After making an on-air apology, I asked for permission to take some additional time out around the Thanksgiving holiday. Upon
Speaker John Boehner said his party should support gay Republican congressional candidates and urged his colleagues to “be a little more sensitive” when running against women. “Some of our members just aren’t as sensitive as they ought to be,” Boehner said. When asked if he thinks his party should support gay candidates, Boehner simply said: “I do.”
Amid an array of “knock-out” attacks against a number of Jews in Brooklyn’s Crown Heights neighborhood, a city councilwoman pointed to the success of the Jewish community as triggering the aggression. Councilwoman-elect Laurie Cumbo emphasized that while she “admire[s] the Jewish community immensely” for its work ethic, black teens may see it differently. “While I personally regard this level of tenacity, I also recognize that for others, the accomplishments of the Jewish community triggers feelings of resentment, and a sense that Jewish success is not also their success,” Cumbo, who was recently elected, wrote in a letter.
