Obama appears to have
upper hand in tight race

AMES, Iowa - President Barack Obama is poised to eke out a victory in the race for the 270 electoral votes needed to win re-election, having beaten back Republican Mitt Romney's attempts to convert momentum from the debates into support in all-important Ohio, according to an Associated Press analysis a week before Election Day. While the Democratic incumbent has the upper hand in the electoral vote hunt, Romney has pulled even, or is slightly ahead, in polling in a few pivotal states, including Florida and Virginia. The Republican challenger also appears

Obama has it sewn up, so you Dems don't need to worry. If you have something important to do you don't really need to vote. Or if the weather is bad. It's okay, Dems, you don't need to vote...

"To be sure, anything can happen to influence the Nov. 6 election." - article. Let's see, Romney is gaining in every poll except a couple which are oversampling Democrats by around 9% or even more. 0bama is even having to campaign in PA at this late date. That's the upper hand? Once more they are trying to influence the election rather than report it to suppress Republican turnout.

#4, I hope that's what is happening. I spoke with someone from the Romney campaign here in Loudoun County, VA this evening. She said that they are hearing that 0bama still has a slight lead in VA. I'll be making phone calls on Thursday. There have been a lot of IT transplants from CA here over the past several years, and it has unfortunately changed the political demographics in Northern Virginia from Republican to Democrat.

Thanks for the laugh, AssPress. Really needed it today. Does the 'upper hand' include PA, MI, MN, OR, WI,CO,NH, NV? All states that Obama won easily in 2008, where its now tied, or Obama is losing? Not to mention FL, NC, VA, or IN that Obama has now apparently thrown in the towel on those? He appears to be putting all his eggs in the OH basket and praying to Allah for a miracle on election night. Yup, sure sounds like a candidate with the 'upper hand' to me. /s

"I hope that's what is happening." That probably didn't come out quite right. IF/IF there is an effort to suppress turnout I hope it won't stop Republican voters from going to the polls.

A better way to look at it is that Romney has stabilized at 50%. He will also pick up some if not most of the undecided vote. Romney may not even need Ohio if he wins Wisconsin. In any event, I think Romney will take Ohio. The popular vote polls reflect nationwide trends. Why should Ohio be any different the rest of the country?

Looks like some "folks" (as Obama calls them) will be mighty unhappy on the 7th. When the minions riot in response to The Won's loss, he will "rise up" and calm the masses. This way he will have something positive said about him in the history books -- at least he stopped the rabid masses from destroying major cities, whatta guy!

Obama knew that Americans were under attack in Libya and denied their requests for help, then mitigated the evil of the attacking enemy by blaming it on a supposed American youtube video.

This is quintessential treason; no question about it. Obama (and Leon Panetta) should be prosecuted for this rather than contemplating re-election.

Sorry, AP. You will be in for a nice (for us) little surprise on November 7. The Bradley effect will be especially powerful especially for this (half) black candidate whose campaign has made it very much about race and not competence.

The MSM just doesn't have the same power to deceive voters now that it had in 2008. People are very mad with the way the economy is going and despite all the propagandizing, people are still seeing the truth about Obama's incompetence through alternative news media and grassroots networks laid down by TEA party activists. AP and all the other dinosaur media will not be able to lull the conservative voters into complacency again.

However, Obama can still win if he get enough aliens and zombies out, but this is not certain if Romney wins in a landslide. So, he is left with trying to get as many people to vote now before the whole Benghazi scandal blows up in his face.

Long-term unemployed struggle
to find — and keep — jobs
Washington Post, by Ylan Q. Mui    Original Article
Posted By: Dreadnought- 4/18/2014 10:37:47 PM     Post Reply
For the long-term unemployed, finding a job is hard — but keeping one may be even harder. New research tracking people who have been out of work for six months or longer found that 23 percent of them landed a job within a few months of the study. But a year later, more than a third of that group was unemployed again or out of the labor force altogether. The findings are the latest in a bleak but growing body of literature suggesting long-term unemployment has become a trap that is difficult to escape. Economists say that means the long-term unemployed could become a permanent underclass, left behind by the nation’s broader

Social Security stops trying

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

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

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

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

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. Interestingly, the Harvard grad failed to mention the religion or the motive of brothers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan
