The Two Polls That Have Chicago Terrified
National Review Online, by Josh Jordan

Original Article

Posted By:brianod1, 10/28/2012 12:01:20 AM

For all of the polls that are flying out almost hourly now, there are two common trends emerging: Mitt Romney is leading independents by healthy margins, and who holds the overall lead is entirely dependent on the party split within the sample. As of last night, Romney has a razor thin lead of eight tenths of a point nationally against an average Democratic partisan advantage of 4.4 points. In 2008, Barack Obama won the election by 7.2 points (52.9–45.7) and Democrats outnumbered Republicans by eight points.

Comments:
I'll feel better if I see a lot of spittle flying out of Axlerod's mouth on the Sunday talkers.

Party Id shifts significantly from election to election. 2010 was just about even. Most predict anywhere from D+1 to R+2 this cycle with independents going GOP +8 or more. This keeps Obama up smoking.

I can't wait to hear the maggot's concession speech.

On November 6, we lance the boil. The healing begins shortly after noon, January 20.

The Benghazi attack was a make or break opportunity for 0bama. He went with what he chose as the most politically expedient approach. What happened there was bad enough, but the backlash from the exposure of the false narrative is exponentially worse.

The truth is revolting even 0bama's supporters. By this time next week, every news outlet will be shamed into covering the story. When the dust settles on Nov 6, even CA and NY could be red states.

The Manchurian from Chicago is finished.

Will Obama give his concession speech on MTV? Will Beyonce, Jay-Z, and the other hip-hop toads he lavishly fed with our money be standing behind him as he performs his teleprompted me-me I-I, phony preacher jive?

Where or however he does it, I'll be watching just to see the look on his wife's gorilla-cookies mug.

Well, if the Tsunami hits in the next 20 minutes and it wipes out Kailua and zero's new $35 million choom pad on the Windward side, zero and the beast will have to find a new home....I hope.

Number 5, I see that you have watched the wise philosopher, Fred Sanford. Aunt Ester was actually much more attractive than the wookie.

One other fact that indicates the Obama team is worried big-time: they didn't book Grant Park for the victory speech on Nov. 6, but instead the McCormick convention hall, which is indoors, somewhat isolated and holds many fewer people.

As a follow-up to #8, hillbuzz has the story on the isolated McCormick Place concession speech plan. Immediately after a teary farewell to the Grifter Life, the O's will drive to their Chicago home for packing up of Teddy Bears and such. I expect the For Sale sign will be unveiled the next day.

A search of all islands in the Andaman and Nicobar archipelago has drawn a naught, so far as the missing Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 is concerned, officials of the Andaman and Nicobar Command (ANC) confirmed on Saturday evening. Two Indian Navy ships, along with those from other nations, are continuing their search at the location pointed out by Malaysian authorities but nothing has been spotted on the water. Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 disappeared on March 8, 2014 on the way to Beijing from Kuala Lumpur. "There has been no oil slick, no flotsam or a sonar ping to indicate that the jetliner crashed anywhere

Former Mayor Richard M. Daley says he doesn’t remember much about the planning of Millennium Park, his wildly over-budget project that has become one of Chicago’s civic treasures. The sprawling downtown park, with its gleaming stainless-steel sculpture known as “The Bean,” is seen as one of his crowning achievements. Daley, though, shrugs it off. N

With New York City mayoral hopeful Bill de Blasio waiting to speak and an audience of a few thousand in Brooklyn´s Cadman plaza waving signs and flags, dancing, and chanting "Si se puede," 23-year-old Pakistani immigrant Hina Naveed, a student from Staten Island, didn´t miss her moment. She captured the identity and energy of the crowd in one quick phrase: "Being undocumented sucks!" The nationwide March for Immigrant Dignity and Respect was the latest mobilization for comprehensive immigration reform.

CTA chairman’s name on letter
vouching for notorious gang leader

Battling gang violence has been one of Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s top priorities. But one of Emanuel’s top appointees, CTA Chairman Terry Peterson, appears to have taken a different tack in the mid-1990s: Lobbying for the early release of the imprisoned leader of the Gangster Disciples — one of the largest and deadliest street gangs in Chicago, the Better Government Association has learned.

Rahm gets into the real estate
game—with your money

As if the city doesn´t have enough problems with crime, budget deficits, and school cuts and closings, Mayor Emanuel has decided to barrel headfirst into the South Loop real estate market—with at least $55 million of your property tax funds. The key moment came at the July 24 City Council meeting, when he hammered through an ordinance giving the city eminent domain authority to buy property at Indiana and Cermak. He plans to have a hotel built there. A couple days later, the Metropolitan Pier and Exposition Authority—the city-state agency that oversees Navy Pier and McCormick Place

Chinese troops stop Army from

Amid a spate of incursions by China in Ladakh, its troops are also resorting to tactics like preventing Indian Army from patrolling posts in this sector along the border which was well within India´s territory. In what is being described as an aggressive approach by China, the tactics have come to the fore in the wake of yet another incident last week when Indian troops launched its patrol "Tiranga" from Trade Junction area in north of Ladakh for two posts located 14 km up in the higher reaches along the line of actual control (LAC).

Five Things Media Aren´t Telling
You About Today´s Jobs Numbers
Breitbat´s Big Journalism, by John Nolte    Original Article
Posted By: brianod1- 8/3/2013 8:32:05 AM     Post Reply
Using anti-science exuberance, for the last few days, the media have pom-pommed someone´s ethereal projection that the economy had created 200,000 or so jobs in July. The fact that our media would consider 200,000 jobs (which hardly keeps up with population growth) worthy of pom-poms is grotesque enough. Even more appalling is spinning manufactured positive news-cycles for President Obama based on proven nonsense like the ADP´s jobs projections.

After presenting at the Academy Awards this year, Kim Novak didn’t want to leave her house. The Hitchcock screen siren, 81, was too humiliated to venture from her home near the Rogue River in Oregon. She read the cruel posts and Internet snark about her appearance, and it was just too much. “It got to me like it gets kids and teenagers,” she told the Associated Press. The “Vertigo” actress, considered one of the great beauties in her day, posted a note on her Facebook wall Thursday, acknowledging that she’d gotten fat injections in her face and addressing her halted

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'

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. 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. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

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

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?

Illinois Dems to offer $100 million in

First, the good news: We are close enough to the end of the Obama presidency for his crowd to talk about a presidential library. Now, the bad news: Obama´s retirement is still 1,008 days distant. Plenty of time though to round up the dough to build it somewhere. Figure they need Solyndra-style money, at least $500 million. The last two presidents – Bill Clinton and George W. Bush -- built their legacy edifices totally with private money. [Snip] However, Obama supporters have a different take. They think taxpayers should put up $100 million in public money for Obama´s library.
