Fox News poll: Romney erases
Obama's lead nationally after first debate

Fox News, by Dana Blanton

Mitt Romney now holds a narrow advantage over Barack Obama in the race for the White House -- 46 percent to 45 percent, if the election were held today, according to a Fox News national poll of likely voters released Wednesday. That’s a six-point turnaround and a three-point “debate bounce” for Romney. Before the first presidential debate in Denver last Wednesday, Romney had 43 percent to Obama’s 48 percent (September 24-26, 2012). Romney’s edge comes mainly from independents, white voters and men. Just over half of men (51 percent) back Romney now

Poll conducted Oct. 7-9.

If it was just a poll or two I might not think twice about these developments but it seems to be all the polls. Stay the course and remain enthusiastic. Here's hoping Ryan will do well tomorrow night and hopefully the Libya fiasco will start to register with the American public and remind them of obama's ineptitude.

I couldn't watch the first debate because I was dubious. But I can't imagine that Ryan can't out debate Uncle Joe. With half his brain tied behind his back (sorry Rush).

Sorry but the skeptic in me is unsure about so many polls suddenly willing to admit these results. It all seems too easy. Hmmmmm.......

Obama was always one speech away from defeat. All it took was a little competition and no teleprompter.

What #4 said. IMHO, the reason the "polls" now show Romney in the lead is because he was ALWAYS in the lead, at least since the Convention. FNC has the worst polls for Mitt Romney on cable, so it must've been really painful for whoever does their "polling" to admit he is "now" leading, After Paul Ryan destroys little Joey tonight, we'll see what happens.

I don't believe any polls. Each media outlet has a vested interest in keeping this election close. The money spent on ads and consultants is a money producer and has nothing to do with WE folk....

Focus on November 6th -- so WE the people can dump the Chicago mob....

The fix is in. As long as Biden remembers to zip up his fly, he WILL deliver himself by making an incredibly witty rejoinder to Ryan, a la Bentzen's "You're no Jack Kennedy". The media will find some kind of half-witty remark to tout from the rooftops, and pronounce the Obama campaign back on track to victory. Just you watch.

The actual numbers may not be certain but the strong trend to Romney IS!

Clearly, Romney wiped the floors with BO and BO's campaign excuses sound childish and idiotic. The debate showed a strong, friendly, thoughtful leader who listened to his opponent and adapted his answers and focus based on the questions and the flow of the debate; Romney vs. a petulant, stumbling and robotic ideologue who repeated the same thing over and over, even when he had been made to look silly the first couple times he said it; BO.

With the state of the world foreign policy has become as toxic to BO as the economy so it is hard to believe that BO will do any better in future debates. If BO's strategy is to be not so nice, he is going to have a problem with Romney. Romney is Mr. Cool and went through Republican debates where several candidates ganged up on him. He will have no trouble making BO look foolish and that will make BO's anger look without grounds, like a guy with anger management problems.

BO chose this path long ago when he decided to duck his record. His campaign has been focused on lies, distortions , and propaganda. The media has gleefully assisted. But the convention and debates are opportunities for Romney to directly address the electorate and speak the truth. That truth is an anathema to BO and dems. They have no counter for it. There is no shield to protect them from it.

And the polls show it. That's why dems are in a panic. BO is their candidate and there is nothing they can do about it.

If the numbers in all of these recent polls, including this one, are anywhere near correct, it just goes to show that there is still a large percentage of voters in this country that are simply stupid. They have had to heard at least some of the lies and distortions given out by the DNC and the Obozo crowd, but choose to ignore them. I guess that they just don't believe their own lying eyes. It's a sad day in Black Rock.

The change in polls is because Obama did not overwhelm the masses with tingles of hope and change. It would make me feel better if people are changing their mind because they now realize that we have been lied to on numerous occasions about terrorist attacks on our nation. It is not only that this administration is completely incompetent, but that they are actually sympathetic to the terrorist who wish us all dead.

A couple of days ago, a poster here related how the black people he/she sees regularly seemed to be carrying a sense of shame after the debate. The image that created still hasn't left me. It highlights what 68 million people saw the night Obama revealed his character of laziness, ignorance, and entitlement. Since then, a lot more people have seen his performance and realized that it wasn't a bad night for him, it was the real Obama. Polls are finally reflecting what we saw.

#19, that was me who noticed the blacks I encountered - check-out clerks, co-workers and so forth - seeming to sort of hang their heads and seem ashamed the day after the debate. And this was certainly natural because they could not have been prouder the day after O was elected. And I was actually very happy for them when he was elected. I thought his election could be, in the long run, a big step toward healing this nation and the descendents of its slaves from the results of slavery (not that I had wanted him elected!). But now it's time for them to wake up and get real, and these in-your-face debates are making at least a small dent in all their detachment from reality.

The polls are irrelevant and lure us into taking our eyes of the real issue, VOTE FRAUD. This IS the time for stealth communism to come out in force, the organizations, the cells, all the covert power hidden in the government and civilian underworld, is all out for the final big attack, no ID needed, dead people voting, mail in, not allow service people the extra deadline to vote, intimidation of the elderly, the total crookedness of all electronic secretly coded machines, every single agitating and provoking person is out to corrupt the vote.
The Agitator in Chief is not worried about the debates because the debates don't FIX the VOTE, his fixers, uncountable thousands of them do all the fixing. THE FIX IS IN.
We must fight for each and every vote.

my concern is that biden is a rat...rmember the confirmation hearing for Clark for a post in Africa. Biden asked him the names of people that were leaders in SOUTH Africa..no place anywhere near North Africa....Clark could not answer because he did not know the peoples names...Biden tricked him...later went up to Clark and said...thats ok, he didn't know the answers either...he is a "smiling barracuda" smiles while he stabes your back...

Russia ´outraged´ as east Ukraine

Slavyansk Ukraine- A deadly gunfight in a town in restive east Ukraine on Sunday shattered a fragile Easter truce, with Russia declaring it was "outraged" at the return to violence in the crisis-hit former Soviet republic. Three pro-Russian militants and one attacker were killed in a firefight at a roadblock close to the separatist-held town of Slavyansk, said a local pro-Kremlin rebel leader, Vyatcheslav Ponomarev. Vladimir, a masked 20-year-old pro-Russian rebel who was at the barricade, told AFP: "Four cars pulled up to our roadblock around 1:00am (2200 GMT Saturday).

Washington - The latest delay to a final decision on the Keystone XL oil pipeline will reinforce a White House strategy to energize President Barack Obama´s liberal-leaning base before fall elections in which Democrats risk losing control of the U.S. Senate. Environmentalists, worried about the project´s effect on climate change, have put enormous pressure on the president to reject the pipeline from Canada´s oil sands, staging demonstrations outside the White House and protests in states where he travels. A decision to approve it now could have prompted that vocal group, which was instrumental in electing Obama in 2008 and 2012,

Gospel story of Jesus’ resurrection a
source of deep rifts in Christian religion
Washington Post, by Kimberley Winston    Original Article

“On the third day, he rose again.” That line, from the Nicene Creed, is a foundational statement of Christian belief. It declares that three days after Jesus died on the cross, he was resurrected, a glimmer of the eternal life promised to believers. It’s the heart of the Easter story in seven little words. But how that statement is interpreted is the source of some of the deepest rifts in Christianity — and a stumbling block for some Christians, and more than a few skeptics. Did Jesus literally come back from the dead in a bodily resurrection, as many traditionalist

´8THEIST´ license plate in NJ: Why
states can´t rein in the vanity plate monster

Posted By: NorthernDog- 4/19/2014 4:09:21 PM     Post Reply
If you can get a New Jersey vanity license plate that reads “BAPTIST,” why not one that reads “8THEIST”? That’s the question Shannon Morgan, a self-describe atheist, is asking in a lawsuit after the New Jersey department of motor vehicles denied her vanity plate application. Her main complaint is a bureaucracy deeming that “8THEIST” has connotations that offend “good taste and decency,” the bar which the state uses to judge the suitability of personalized plate messages. She also wants the state to adopt a more “viewpoint-neutral” vanity plate approval policy, since when she typed “BAPTIST” into the DMV application it

When Chelsea Clinton announced Thursday that she’s pregnant, it took the media about two nanoseconds to home in on what that really means: Hillary, should she run for president in 2016, will campaign as a grandmother. (Snip) And for another, Hillary’s newfound role as grandmother isn’t necessarily a political boon. As I wrote in the Washington Monthly’s current issue, it could very easily cut both ways. After all, Hillary, who will be 68 in 2016, already runs the risk of appearing old, a vulnerability not lost on her detractors. From the Monthly: (At sixty-six, Hillary is “not particularly old for

Chef Vered Guttman braved the challenge of preparing a White House Passover seder in line with Michelle Obama´s healthy eating guidelines and lived to tell her story. "The traditional seder fare is hardly fresh or healthy," Guttman wrote in a post-dinner review about incorporating vegetable sides to "offset some of the Jewish carbs" like gefilte fish and matzo ball soup. And her hard work to keep it healthy paid off, as both the President and First Lady praised her quinoa-kale salad and even inquired after the recipe. Guttman, a D.C. based caterer, worked with White House executive chef Cris Comerford

A new poll shows former secretary of state Hillary Clinton´s (D) numbers hitting their lowest point in six years. Meanwhile, it finds that the Republican Party is experiencing something of a renaissance. The Fox News poll, from Democratic pollster Anderson Robbins Research and GOP pollster Shaw & Company, shows Clinton´s favorable rating dropping to 49 percent, compared to 45 percent unfavorable. The last time her numbers were in that ballpark was during the 2008 Democratic presidential primary race. After she ended her campaign, her favorable/unfavorable split was 47/46. Other polls have shown Clinton´s numbers --

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

In a speech earlier this week, Lisa O.

Monaco’s full, prepared text is available here. She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15. Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings.
