USA Today Shocker:
'Obama, Romney Nearly
Tied in Electoral College'

Newsbusters, by Noel Sheppard

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 10/14/2012 9:11:13 PM

If you've been paying attention to the Drudge Report lately, you've seen headlines linking to Real Clear Politics data showing how the presidential race has tightened since President Obama and Mitt Romney debated in Denver. Rather surprisingly, the folks at USA Today not only noticed, but also published an article Sunday with the shocking headline, "Obama, Romney Nearly Tied in Electoral College'': Obama leads in states with 201 electoral votes, according to state polling averages compiled by the RealClearPolitics website. Romney leads in states with 191 electoral votes. [...]

Note that RCP lists NC as a ''tossup''.

This is the lamestream media attempting to keep the election interesting. Romney will bury the pResident in November. I cannot wait to see how the above media spin this one.....

The only real shocker is that Obama is even close, much less tied.
Which I don't believe he is.

I have been sending up numerous prayers that we are blessed with President Romney next January.

I have this nagging feeling that we are all so hopeful because of the debate and the polls, and I am afraid it will turn out just like the healthcare bill did at the Supreme Court. We were all so hopeful and fairly certain that it would be struck down only to be let down when it was upheld.

I pray I am wrong.

Has an incumbent ever drifted downward in the polls and then come back to win? I can't think of any example except perhaps Truman. But back then they had stopped taking polls well before the election, and their polls were never too accurate anyways.

#6 - That result was dependent on one flawed man. This coming result is dependent on millions.

Be of good cheer!

This yardstick will not be real until election night. Until then, it's all conjecture and spin.

It really boils down to:

Will it be windy, cold & raining/snowing on election day wherever there are huge pockets of urban welfare voters, or the bastions of the Left at large Ivy League Universities & states like Connecticut? We can certainly pray for it.

Will the story of our Ambassador's assassination in Benghazi not only grow legs but devour this White House Administration in charge? We can push it as hard as we can, in every way we can, thru FB, talking w/friends & neighbors, emailing, writing to our local papers, etc.

Will there be an October Surprise, real time or orchestrated, in our favor that we haven't seen yet (i.e. Breitbart's Revenge)?

Will Obama continue to make a fool of himself in the final two debates, while Romney mops the floor with him?

Will the LSM pull out the stops to help him (i.e. snarky LDS expose's coming out of the woodwork)?

Will The Chicago Thug Dem Machine commit voter fraud the likes we've never seen?

That's what this election boils down to. That and fasting & prayer. This kind . . . this evil kind, does not come out without fasting & prayer.

Remember when we were counting chads to keep Gore from suing & taking GW Bush's electoral victory away? That is how close this is going to be -- all because the MSM carries Obama's water & refuses to tell the truth about his incompetency.

Pray! Work! Talk! Contribute! And pray some more!

The MSM readily admits Romney is closing in Obama but the point they want to get across is Obama is still ahead despite the terrible debate performance.
After the debate we saw stories about independents and women flocking to Romney,yet Obama still leads the national polls.There has to be something fishy about the national and electoral polls.

Romney's biggest fear should be the chunk of voters willing to give Obama the benefit of the doubt.Obama has absolutely nothing in the pipeline that will change this country for the better.It's all based on abstract themes that have no basis in reality.

Wasserman Schultz: Politics Didn’t
Factor into Obama Keystone
Pipeline Delay
Mediaite, by Evan McMurry    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 4/21/2014 2:49:40 AM     Post Reply
DNC Chair and Representative Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-FL) told Meet the Press’ David Gregory Sunday morning that President Barack Obama’s latest delay in the approval of the proposed Keystone Pipeline was not a political decision meant to animate members of the Democratic base ahead of the 2014 midterms. “As a member of Congress who represents hundreds of thousands of people in south Florida, I want to make sure the right decision is arrived at and that the president makes that decision carefully and doesn’t factor politics into his decision, which I don’t think he is,” Wasserman Schultz said.

Drought -- and neighbors --
press Las Vegas to conserve water

LAS VEGAS — Deep beneath Lake Mead, a 23-foot-tall tunnel-boring machine grinds through stubborn bedrock in a billion-dollar effort to make sure water continues flowing to this thirsty resort city. For six years, the Southern Nevada Water Authority has been building an intake straw below the reservoir´s two existing pipes. Due for completion in fall 2015, critics say it may not provide a long-term solution. An ongoing drought and the Colorado River´s stunted flow have shrunk Lake Mead to its lowest level in generations. The reservoir, which supplies 90% of Las Vegas´ water, is ebbing as though a plug had been

John Kerry’s Easter Message:

In an op-ed published in the Boston Globe on Easter Sunday and posted on the State Department website, Secretary of State John Kerry recalled his days as an altar boy and pointed out that he is “the first Catholic Secretary of State in 33 years.” Alexander Haig, who served as secretary of state to President Ronald Reagan from January 1981 to July 1982, was also a Catholic. Last month, I traveled to Rome with President Obama, where I was honored to meet His Holiness Pope Francis,” said Kerry. “As an altar boy six decades ago, I never imagined that I

(Video) A car plowed into a Fort Myers church filled with 200 people celebrating Easter on Sunday night, injuring 21. Fort Myers police responded to the chaotic scene shortly before 8 p.m. at the Second Haitian Baptist Church on 3660 Central Ave., Lt. Victor Medico said. When officers arrived, church members were using car jacks to try to lift the vehicle off churchgoers who were trapped underneath. Mary Briggs, spokeswoman for Lee Memorial Health System, said 18 people were taken to Lee County hospitals. Ten of the injured were taken to Lee Memorial Hospital, one of which was discharged late Sunday.

A man was charged with attempted murder and aggravated battery in a Friday shooting that left a 40-year-old man in the Brainerd neighborhood with six gunshot wounds. Deontae C. Jones, 18, was held on $1 million bail after appearing in Cook County bond court Sunday afternoon. Prosecutors said Jones approached a man who was outside his residence on the 9300 block of S. May St., checking to see if his recycling bin was full when Jones approached the man and fired at him. The victim began running away and fell to the ground, said Cook County Assistant State’s Attorney Naheda

The first family attended Easter services Sunday at the Nineteenth Street Baptist Church, a Northwest Washington congregation that welcomed the Obamas on the eve of the president’s first inauguration. The Obamas’ motorcade left the White House shortly before 10 a.m. (Snip) The motorcade pulled up to the church, about four miles away, just after 10. The first family arrived through a tented entrance and sat in the second pew in a mostly, but not completely filled church, joining an estimated 250 others. The president wore a light khaki suit. The first lady was wearing a cream dress and sweater. Daughters

Clearwater doctor unveils secrets of Shroud
Tampa Tribune [FL], by Michelle Bearden & Staff    Original Article

CLEARWATER — In the mid-1970s, Wayne Phillips saw a television program telling the story of the Shroud of Turin, a centuries-old linen cloth that bears the image of a crucified man. At first, he was miffed. Years of Catholic schooling — Jesuit High School in Tampa and Notre Dame University — and he had never known about this artifact? (He would later learn that it was a delicate subject at the Vatican.) A doctor, he has a curious mind. A mind shaped by logic and by science. But as a Catholic, he understands some beliefs are still a mystery. He

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

In a speech earlier this week, Lisa O. Monaco, President Barack Obama’s assistant for homeland security and counterterrorism, insisted that American parents must be vigilant because their “confrontational” children could be on the verge of becoming terrorists. 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. Interestingly, the Harvard grad failed to mention the religion or the motive of brothers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan

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

WASHINGTON--Rushing to an afternoon vote last month, Sen. Ted Cruz hopped the underground tram to the U.S. Capitol from his office across the street. The Texan planted his black ostrich cowboy boots in the middle of the small subway car without getting so much as a nod from the other senators--Republican or Democrat--amiably chatting or huddled in their seats. Mr. Cruz finds himself standing alone a lot these days. His response to the cold shoulders: "The establishment despised Ronald Reagan" before he became president, "but the people loved him." For the 43-year-old Republican, the Reagan name illuminates his political life´s
