One week after the first presidential debate, the political environment continues to shift in unpredictable ways since that one-sided event. Mitt Romney has received a deserved bounce in the polls – however, conservatives should temper their enthusiasm. While the national trackers have registered a slight lead for Romney among likely voters, the polls of states like Ohio – which has been and remains peculiarly resistant to the Republican message this cycle – still show Obama with a slight lead. But if Republicans should be concerned, Democrats should be terrified. President Barack Obama’s campaign has responded
No, but they still downplay the bad news. A Republican president would have been hounded every second by 'journalists' screaming questions about the murder of our ambassador and other U.S. personnel - and it would be top story every night on every network news show - and the initial lies of the state department and everyone in the administration about the video causing it would have all the newspapers, networks, and dems screaming non-stop for prosecution of all involved, screaming for a special counsel, screaming for everyone up to the president to resign. No, O is still getting a free ride. But what should really put the fear of - well, whatever dems believe in - into the administration is that I think the press is starting to think 'maybe President Romney wouldn't be that bad . . .'
I do not think it is so much the media is now realizing that 0'bummer is a looser, but the two fold image that they have covered for him combined with the image that they have portrayed of Romney over the last year.
I spent a couple of hours over the weekend making calls to supposed undecided voters in Ohio. I would say that easily 70% of the folks I talked to indicated enthusiastic support for Romney. Some were chomping at the bit to go vote. I pray that's the case throughout the state.
i torture myself a little bit by reading the comments after some articles. the ones after this article are amazing. there are truly some ignorant, nasty people in the left wing. not news, i know, but still amazing.
If the Obama administration began the post-debate narrative by saying that "If Mitt Romney was speaking last night, he was lying", then why are they taking the Big Bird comment seriously? Obviously, if Romney was lying at every step, then the truth is that he intends to support PBS.
But since the narrative DID change to Big Bird in this way, then it stands to reason that it is the Obama administration that is lying by their own words. And has been pointed out so well by so many, what this says is that the Obama camp is in full panic mode and is quite literally falling apart.
As for me, I'm glad that they took the success that John Kerry had and applied it to this campaign.
If I were a liberal, especialy a media liberal, I would be a bit more worried about the posibility of a republican president, wielding the powers enacted by obama's many executive orders and filled with a terrible resolve to forever remove the threat of socialism. A new republican president enters office with the legal power to designate anyone he likes a "terrorist" and legaly assasinate them. I wonder why this never occured to nancy pelosi.
Christmas miracle or sickly sweet PR stunt? Either way, it´s unlikely these WestJet passengers care after they had their wildest holiday wishes granted during a flight across Canada. Travelers pitching up at Toronto Pearson and John C. Munro Hamilton International Airports for flights to Calgary were surprised when a virtual Santa Claus asked what they wanted for Christmas. A promo video sees a variety of passengers telling Father Christmas their dream gift.With their wishes made, the footage shows them merrily taking their place on the aircrafts.
Sen. Lamar Alexander’s chief of staff, Ryan Loskarn, is under investigation for child pornography. The Republican Senator from Tennessee revealed Wednesday that law enforcement officers are searching Loskarn´s private residence. “I am stunned, surprised and disappointed by what I have learned,” the Senator said. Alexander, 73, made the announcement on Wednesday, indicating he "was just informed by the United States Senate legal counsel’s office" of the search. The staffer has been placed on administrative leave without pay.
RENO, Nevada- A couple and four young children missing in frigid weather since they went on an outing to play in the snow on Sunday were found alive in a remote mountain range in Nevada on Tuesday huddled in their overturned vehicle, a sheriff´s dispatch supervisor said. The couple had taken their two children and the woman´s niece and nephew, who range in age from 3 to 10, to an abandoned mining camp in the Seven Troughs range of northwestern Nevada, Pershing County dispatch supervisor Sheila Reitz said. The six were found in good condition and were treated for exposure
The troubled son of a church pastor who is a spiritual advisor to Barack Obama has died in an apparent suicide. Father-of-three Isaac Hunter, 36, had been battling problems since resigning from a Florida megachurch he founded after admitting to an affair with a staff member last year. A judge also granted his wife a domestic-violence petition after claiming his erratic behavior and alcohol abuse had left her ´fearing for my life and the lives of our three children.´ According to court documents, Hunter had written an undated suicide note saying: ´I have become what I never wished to be,
A federal judge said General Motors Co is not required to pay $450 million to cover medical benefits for retirees, in a defeat for the United Auto Workers union. In a 36-page decision, U.S. District Judge Avern Cohn in Detroit said on Tuesday that the current GM did not assume any obligation for the payment, which the automaker had contracted to make two years before its June 2009 bankruptcy filing. The payment had been part of a June 2007 contract between the old GM, its former Delphi Corp affiliate and the UAW. It was not, however, included in a different
MOSCOW— A Russian Cabinet member says Moscow has reserved the right to use nuclear weapons in response to a conventional strike. Wednesday´s comments by Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin carried by Russian news agencies reflected Moscow´s concern with prospective U.S. weapons. Weapons that have been developed in the U.S. under the so-called "prompt global strike" program would be capable of striking targets anywhere in the world in as little as an hour with deadly precision. Russia, which has lagged far behind in developing such weapons, has described them as destabilizing. Without naming the U.S., Rogozin said that those who "experiment
Pleasantly surprised and a bit shocked, I enjoyed religious Christmas carols playing in the elevator of a major hotel. Progressive bullies are relentless in their quest to repeal the celebration of Jesus´s birthday, Christmas, declared a federal holiday in 1870 by President Ulysses S. Grant. Illustrating the effectiveness of the progressives´ intimidation, anonymously, signs are being stealthily posted in public areas: "It´s OK to say Merry Christmas." The progressives´ assault on Christmas leads me to MSNBC-TV host Martin Bashir´s degrading and disgusting punishment suggested for Sarah Palin (i.e., that someone defecate in her mouth). While watching the deplorable MSNBC segment,
When I was a kid, I knew two different Santa Clauses. The first had a fat belly, rosy cheeks, a long white beard, and skin as pink as bubble gum. He was omnipresent, visiting my pre-school and the local mall, visible in all of my favorite Christmas specials. Then there was the Santa in my family’s household, in the form of ornaments, cards, and holiday figurines. A near-carbon copy of the first one—big belly, rosy cheeks, long white beard: check, check, check. But his skin was as dark as mine. Seeing two different Santas was bewildering. Eventually I asked my father what
US President Barack Obama may have moved the masses attending Nelson Mandela’s memorial service with his stirring eulogy, but it was his grinning "selfie" with the Danish and British premiers that set social networks abuzz. In a candid moment captured by a photographer, Denmark’s Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt can be seen holding up her smartphone, with Obama lending a helping hand, as they pose for a picture with David Cameron, all three of them smiling broadly in their seats at Soweto’s World Cup stadium.(Snip)Mashable, the news and technology website, ran the photograph under the headline: ‘‘Dear Obama: Funerals are no place
On his way to the podium at the memorial ceremony for former South African president Nelson Mandela, President Obama walked down the line of dignitaries, greeting other leaders there to pay their respects. Among the hands shaken: that of Cuban leader Raul Castro. Obama neither made a special effort to shake Castro’s hand nor to avoid him. A snub might have been awkward: In his speech, Obama praised Mandela’s “greatest gift” as “his recognition that we are all bound together in ways that can be invisible to the eye; that there is a oneness to humanity; that we achieve ourselves by
The Obama State Department has finally released a second round of photos revealing the harrowing devastation wrought by a terrorist attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi on Sept. 11, 2012. The new photographs depict rampant damage to the consulate. They show charred walls, smoldering fires, Arabic graffiti defacing exterior walls, and scattered debris throughout. The extent of the damage would lead any reasonably serious person to conclude that this was a cold, calculated attack, carefully coordinated to mark the 11th anniversary of Sept. 11, 2001. Unfortunately for the American people, the Obama-Clinton-Rice cabal that led to the Benghazi cover-up was
Johannesburg - A man who provided sign language interpretation on stage for Nelson Mandela´s memorial service, attended by scores of heads of state, was a "fake," the national director of the Deaf Federation of South Africa said on Tuesday. Asked about the claim by The Associated Press, South Africa´s government said it was preparing a statement. Three sign language experts said the man was not signing in South African or American sign languages. South African sign language covers all of the country´s 11 official languages, according to the federation. It wasn´t immediately clear if the unidentified man was using a
A black fashion student says he was brutally attacked by a gang of Hasidic men who shouted anti-gay slurs at him while he was walking through Williamsburg after a night of partying, the Daily News has learned. Taj Patterson, 22, was headed home to Fort Greene around 4:30 a.m. on Dec. 1 when he says more than a dozen ultra-Orthodox Jewish men began assaulting him on Flushing Ave. and yelling, “Stay down, f----t!”
House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) snapped at conservative groups that have come out in opposition to the budget deal reached Wednesday between Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) and Sen. Patty Murray (D-Wash.). "They´re using the American people for their own purposes. This is ridiculous," Boehner said at a press conference with other members of House Republican leadership on Wednesday. Over the past few days, a number of conservative groups have blasted the deal because it sets discretionary spending levels in the budget higher than previous levels under sequestration. In the past three days, the influential Heritage Action, Club for Growth, Americans
