As Election Day nears,
Romney crowds are surging

SIDNEY, Ohio — The crowds tell the story. As Election Day nears, Mitt Romney is drawing large and excited throngs. Look to dusty Iowa cornfields, rain-soaked Virginia parks, the muddy fields of the Shelby County Fairgrounds, where a crowd of 9,500 — almost half of this western Ohio town — gathered among the barns and stables on a frigid October evening this week to glimpse the Republican presidential contender. "Where else would we want to be?" said one of the shivering faithful, Judy Cartwright, a 71-year-old nurse from Sidney. "I want to see the next president of the United States."

Wow! Just WOW!

I'm still afraid to allow myself to hope --or believe.

Yes, it sounds like a wonderful relief. If they win, I will run down the street screaming in joy and waving a flag. I will also drive and honk and celebrate like there is no tomorrow. If Zero wins, there will be no tomorrow. I don't care what the lefties here would say or think about my partying. Let them try to pull something. I'll have to move anyway because of all the Obama cronyism and the UN Agenda 21 is tearing down my home and the last few homes on big pieces of land. I can only hope and pray that things start getting better before I have to live on my car with my cats.

I really can't see the dems marching into this election the way things currently stand. They see the same polls as everybody else and Obama only locking down 10 states

Now all of a sudden the riot card is slipping out.So the choice is living in a communist country or worrying about rioters tearing things up.

It's never too late for an October surprise while it's still October.

#3: it needs to be more than that if we expect to win. With the way the Dems are attacking True the Vote and fighting against anti-fraud efforts. The way they're suppressing the military vote. They are not going to sit there and let this be an above-board, fair election.

The talking heads say Ohio is vital for a Romney win - sounds like the tide is changing in the right direction - modified joy and prayerful hope.

Must have been a very difficult column for the Asse Press to have to admit that Mitt Romney "crowds" are surging! What #3 and #4 said. A 6 point spread sounds about right to me and if that's not enough, let THEM question the result! Romney/Ryan!

I'm with Romney all the way. Just a point though, Reagan straightened the economy out, but that tough medicine took everything down for the first year. Stock market tanked first year of Reagan, didn't bottom out until late summer of 1982, then straight up. Just sayin'. Might work out immediately for Mitt, but we all might have to be patient too.

Just to add, the term in the early '80s was "taking away the punchbowl", as the FED reversed course from Carter years easy money, to Reagan's sound currency. Could see that again, along with a shutdown of all the "stimulus" (ie GRAFT) going to unions and other DEM machines. Could put consumer spending into a tailspin.

obama's big crowds now are at universities, where classes are canceled and the captive audience of "50 percenters" are lured to fill the venue with promises of free weed, courtesy of Bill Maher. (OK, some sarc).

BTW - a 50 percenter is a college student whose odds of finding a job are 50 percent, thanks to the marxist metrosexual masquerading as a leader. Those who are working can be recognized by their speaking skills, ex: "May I have the pleasure of serving you fries with your wise choice of a quarter-pounder with cheese?"

A never seen before ground swell that covers all fifty states is going to make a mockery of this "must-win-this-state-must-not-lose-that" punditry. On the morning of Nov 7 this will be a different country.

FTA: ''Obama can still turn out big crowds. As the election draws close, the president is appearing in college settings where he can depend on the enthusiasm of younger supporters.''

Translation: The Won depends on the fresh college brainwashed nincompoops with absolutely NO real-life experience other than ''I should get it for free!''

Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan were together yesterday in Lancaster, Ohio - just down the road from me. Lancaster's population is around 38,000. Almost 9,000 showed up to greet them on a beautiful fall day and the crowd loved them!!

Later that evening, Paul Ryan stopped in Columbus to welcome home eight members of our military and spend time with them before leaving. Class act.

Gotta get in that order for a matched set schedenfreud popcorn bowl and beer stein.

I want to see Axelrod's face on election night. By then nothing he says will matter because the outcome will be miles beyond his reach.

Then there's Michelle. It will be surprising if she appears publicly any time soon after getting notice that her platinum travel card has been cancelled.

Social Security stops trying
to collect on old debts by
seizing tax refunds
Washington Post, by Marc Fisher    Original Article
Posted By: Dreadnought- 4/14/2014 10:13:04 PM     Post Reply
The Social Security Administration announced Monday that it will immediately cease efforts to collect on taxpayers’ debts to the government that are more than 10 years old. The action comes after The Washington Post reported that the government was seizing state and federal tax refunds that were on their way to about 400,000 Americans who had relatives who owed money to Social Security. In many cases, the people whose refunds were intercepted had never heard of any debt, and the debts dated as far back as the middle of the past century. “I have directed an immediate halt to further

Despite promises to the contrary, it appears that State Senator Wendy Davis (D-Fort Worth) voted on bills that affect her clients and favorably impact the bottom line of her law firm. “I have never done anything in a way that represents a conflict in my voting and something that would benefit me personally,” she said in an interview, but state records seem to tell a different story. The Dallas Morning News´ Senior Political Writer Wayne Slater (DMN) reported that Davis supported legislation governing a toll road project. That would be all well and good except for the fact that the

Democrats Lose Two More Special
Elections They Didn’t Expect To

Democrats have had a recurring problem in special elections this year: Their voters aren’t turning out. If a weak economy and continued Obamacare problems persist, the November elections could be a disaster for Democrats. Last week, Democrats lost two special elections they weren’t planning to. Arlington, Va., is a classic wealthy ObamaTown, filled with government workers and limousine liberals. Mitt Romney won only 29 percent of the vote in 2012. But last Tuesday, Democrats lost their first election for the five-member Arlington County Board in 15 years when John Vihstadt, a Republican running as an independent, won a vacancy on

Nevada ranch standoff could leave
dirt on Harry Reid’s reputation

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said little as federal agents seized and then released cattle last week from the Bundy ranch, but there is little doubt that the highly charged episode was threatening to become a political headache for the Nevada Democrat. The Bureau of Land Management is headed by former longtime Reid aide Neil Kornze, who was confirmed by the Senate as BLM director on Tuesday, just as federal authorities descended on the cattle ranch outside Mesquite, Nev. Mr. Kornze issued a statement Saturday saying that the bureau would return the cattle and withdraw its agents from the ranch

Democrats settle on fairness

On the defensive about their prospects in the midterm elections this fall, congressional Democrats have spent all of April savaging the Republican budget proposal, decrying the Koch brothers and championing a series of bills meant to ingratiate themselves to struggling middle-class voters. In promoting legislation that would extend unemployment benefits, increase the minimum wage and promote equal pay for women, the Democrats have declared themselves the party that will ensure a “fair shot” for all. Republicans, they insist, are the party of special interests. It has been a classic Washington messaging campaign for these partisan

For Hillary Clinton and Boeing,

On a trip to Moscow early in her tenure as secretary of state, Hillary Rodham Clinton played the role of international saleswoman, pressing Russian government officials to sign a multibillion-dollar deal to buy dozens of aircraft from Boeing. A month later, Clinton was in China, where she jubilantly announced that the aerospace giant would be writing a generous check to help resuscitate floundering U.S. efforts to host a pavilion at the upcoming World’s Fair. Boeing, she said, “has just agreed to double its contribution to $2 million.” Clinton did not point out that, to secure the donation, the State Department

OVERLAND PARK, Kan. — Three people were shot and killed Sunday afternoon in suburban Kansas City, and a spokeswoman for a local hospital said a 15-year-old boy is in critical condition. Overland Park city spokesman Sean Reilly says two people died at the Jewish Community Center of Greater Kansas City campus and one was killed at Village Shalom, which is a retirement community that is several blocks away from the center. Overland Park Fire Department spokesman Jason Rhodes said Sunday afternoon that one person of interest is in custody. The Jewish Community Center of Greater Kansas City in Overland Park

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead. "For all the talk about the movement that elected Mr. Obama, the more notable movement of Obama supporters has been away from politics. It appears that few of the young people who voted

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

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

Chelsea Clinton says when people ask her these days whether she wants to go into politics, her answer isn’t an automatic “no.” The 34-year-old former first daughter told Fast Company in an interview published Monday, “for so long the answer was just a visceral no. Not because I had made any conscientious, deliberate decision, but since people had been asking for as long as literally I could remember, it was no." Now, the only child of former President Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton explains, "I live in a city and a state and a country where I

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

Hank Aaron’s recent comments about the need for America to realize that racism is still very much alive and thriving — only now due to those who wear “neckties and starched shirts” rather than KKK hoods — has sparked an angry backlash and many fans are turning the tables, calling the baseball legend himself a racist. “Hank Aaron is a s*****g piece of [expletive] [racial slur],” one man said in an email to the Atlanta Braves’ front office, one of the teams Mr. Aaron used to play for, CBS News reported. “My old man instilled in my mind from a
