Mitt Romney rides new wave of
popularity as poll numbers surge

Telegraph [UK], by Jon Swaine

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 10/10/2012 5:53:12 AM

The Republican challenger, who had trailed Mr Obama for months, won sharp swings in support thanks to his victory last week in the contest's first televised debate, according to three nationwide polls. He led the President by four percentage points nationwide, according to Pew, a non-partisan organisation, which had Mr Obama leading by eight points in mid-September. (Snip)Introducing their father in Iowa yesterday, Josh, the 36-year-old middle son, risked angering the Obama campaign by saying that as boys the brothers had shown him "how to debate an obstinate child."

Romney never trailed Zerobama. The pollsters lied to us just like they have lied to us since the very first pollster went into business.

The job of the pollster is to INFLUENCE not INFORM. No, that's not the way it should be, that's just the way it is.

This is really a repeat on 1980. The left lampooned Reagan for months on end but when he debates hit,people's opinions changed on a dime.Romney has a lot of former Reagan people advising him and why not,the circumstances are virtually the same.

One thing Reagan didn't have to deal with was the poliferation of the celebrity cult and their growth through internet social websites.The thing is,adults decide elections and they were absent for the last election,maybe because they weren't enthused by McCain,especially leading the charge on immigration reform.

I have met Josh several times and I was very impressed by him.
Not only is he a sharp and good looking young man, he is a uniter. He witnessed a very ugly argument I had with another person. About 30 minutes I got a call from him patching things up and getting the results he required. Just like his father he is a calm, thoughtful and uniting person.
Someday he will be POUS.

I agree - Obama was never actually leading. (Does he ever?)

If pollsters give Romney an edge now, then he must be HUGELY way ahead. But we should not become complacent..... we need a lawyer-proof win margin. I'd personally like to see a 70-30 flamethrower.

Interesting point at #3, noting that Reagan was also a victim of vicious leftist lies from polsters, the MSM and the Jimmah Cahtah fan club. But he was never attacked by the denizens of Hollywood, because he was one of their own.
.... I still smile when I visualize Ronald Reagan waving aside media maulers with his famous, 'There you go again.'

I must admit I am out of my comfort zone with all of this good news flowing our way. Everytime I have ever made two birdies in a row I hook my next drive into somebody's house.

Hopefully Mitt can stay down on the ball and follow thru toward the Oval Office.

I've always heard that the pollsters distort the data to help the dims, but try to be a little more honest as they approach the election so that they'll have credibility the next time around.

Obama will be determined to be a different man in the next debate...not the restrained "nice guy" of the last one. He will be out of his comfort zone, too, without his beloved teleprompter. That combo will give Romney the opening to really get under his skin, making Obama mad and showing his true nastiness.

Im no political adviser, but if I were, I'd tell the Romney campaign to come up with another example of wasteful spending of our taxpayer dollars. There are certainly enough to choose from! Who would have thought Big Bird would be such a hit and cause the image it did? Keep them on the defense, Mitt!

Wasteful spending, #16?

Since Big Bird and PBS got such huge play the last go-round, perhaps Mitt could produce a photograph of the P### Christ [Crucifix in urine] and tell the audience that the "artist" received $50K of taxpayer money for that outrage, and then tell the audience that the National Endowment for the Arts will hit the dust bin, right along with PBS. No more tax payer dollars for things like an elephant dung covered picture of Mary, and no more taxpayer dollars for crucifixes in urine.

All the media including the more conservative London Telegraph have to say that this is ''new.'' They just can't accept that the majority (barely) of the US is still more conservative than they accept and can't be fooled all the time. (We hope.)

Advice to Democrats: Don´t say ´recovery´
Associated Press, by David Espo    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 4/18/2014 10:15:20 AM     Post Reply
WASHINGTON - Election-year memo to Democratic candidates: Don´t talk about the economic recovery. It´s a political loser. So say Democratic strategists in a blunt declaration that such talk skips over "how much trouble people are in, and doesn´t convince them that policymakers really understand or are even focusing on the problems they continue to face." In addition, Stan Greenberg, James Carville and others wrote that in head-to-head polling tests the mere mention of the word "recovery" is trumped by a Republican assertion that the Obama administration has had six years to get the economy moving and its policies haven´t worked. Coincidentally or not,

Iran Gets an Unlikely Visitor, an American
Plane, but No One Seems to Know Why

President Obama has warned that Iran is not open for business, even as the United States has loosened some of its punishing economic sanctions as part of an interim nuclear pact. Yet, on Tuesday morning, Iran had an unlikely visitor: a plane, owned by the Bank of Utah, a community bank in Ogden that has 13 branches throughout the state. Bearing a small American flag on its tail, the aircraft was parked in a highly visible section of Mehrabad Airport in Tehran. But from there, the story surrounding the plane, and why it was in Iran — where all but a few

Cost of Treatment May Influence Doctors

Saying they can no longer ignore the rising prices of health care, some of the most influential medical groups in the nation are recommending that doctors weigh the costs, not just the effectiveness of treatments, as they make decisions about patient care. The shift, little noticed outside the medical establishment but already controversial inside it, suggests that doctors are starting to redefine their roles, from being concerned exclusively about individual patients to exerting influence on how health care dollars are spent. “We understand that we doctors should be and are stewards of the larger society as well as of the patient in

Hillary Clinton may end up deciding she wants to spend the 935 days until election 2016 making corporate speeches and spoiling her grandchild. Recent events have exposed weaknesses in Clinton’s supposedly impregnable armor, gaps through which a Democratic or Republican challenger could damage, perhaps even defeat her. The bad headlines to which she has been subjected are enough to make anyone—anyone who isn’t a Clinton—think twice about running for president. Look at the polls. This week’s Fox News poll has Clinton’s favorable rating at its lowest point in six years. She is at 49 percent favorable, 45 percent unfavorable—similar to her

President Barack Obama used his Thursday press conference to diagnose Republicans as fear-mongering, spiteful, obstinate, petulant and obstructive, as he again declared mission-accomplished in his effort to put the nation’s health-care under government control. “I recognize that their party is going through the stages of grief — anger and denial and all that stuff — and we’re not at acceptance yet,” Obama told reporters, where he announced that his Obamacare network had claimed 8 million subscribers. Obama coupled his passive-voice diatribe with his more-in-sorrow-than-anger promise that he “would much prefer a constructive conversation with the Republicans about how do we get some

´Deeply Ashamed´ Ferry Captain

The captain of a ferry that sank off the coast of South Korea Wednesday, leaving nearly 300 people missing, is under investigation as a possible criminal and was one of the first people to escape the doomed vessel, Coast Guard officials said. Lee Joon-seok, 69, left the ferry on a lifeboat 32 minutes after reporting an accident, officials said. The captain appeared on Korean television today, his face covered by a gray hoodie. “I am really sorry and deeply ashamed,” he said, as he was being questioned at the Mokpo Coast Guard Office. It´s unclear which of his actions could be considered criminal.

Soon after the tea party era began in Congress in 2011, President Obama and House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan each released their budgets, proposing how much the government should tax and spend over the rest of the decade. Three years into that budget showdown, Mr. Ryan and his Republican colleagues are winning. Government spending has slowed, and Mr. Obama’s plans for higher taxes and higher spending have fallen by the wayside. “The discretionary spending has in fact been driven by Republicans post-2010 clamping down,” said Douglas Holtz-Eakin, a former director of the Congressional Budget Office who is now president of the

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer.

He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances.

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?
