Somewhere around the time President Barack Obama and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie were standing in unison, while members of Team Romney reportedly were purchasing items to be given away at a fund-raiser for storm victims, it hit me. Somewhere around the time Donald Trump was bleating about the president missing the deadline and saying charities would suffer because of it — as if the money wasn’t Trump’s to do with what he pleases — it hit me.
Comments: This reminds of the NY Times scribe who didn't know a soul that voted for Richard Nixon in 1972.
I don't know. The "early" voting today in Columbus Ohio is a line around the building of minorities and people from the poorer neighborhoods. Last week, you could walk in and early vote in under 10 minutes. I believe that there's a united plan to overwhelm these early voting centers at the last minute, which will allow more questionable votes to be cast. This is why the Republican Party tried to cut off early voting to reasonable few days before the election. Want to see voter suppression (my vote!) on display today? Go to an early voting center in urban Ohio. I expect all those in line will be bused back downtown in time for the Obama rally, I mean Springsteen Jay-C concert, this afternoon. No doubt with a box lunch on the bus.
Better listen to #2. It's the same in Atlanta. Busing the blacks to the early polls, giving them money and then back to vote on Tuesday. This is where the stimulus money went. SEIU spending it as fast as they can to insure reelection of the Won. And the press helping all they can.
One of the things I despise the leftists for is destroying our faith in the electoral process. Remember Gingsburg before the SCOTUS decision was announced on Obamacare? I just feel sick that they know they are going to win because they've already counted the votes.
For those of you worrying about the "close" election and vote fraud, here's a bit of advice for you:
1) STOP reading and watching the news (yes, even Lucianne),
2) Go to hillbuzz.org and read all the positive, uplifting, confident reports there, and
3) STOP spreading your fear among our ranks--all you're doing is helping the enemy (think of it as making donations to Bathhouse Barry cause you're not helping yourself; you're just demoralizing the rest of us)!!
#2, take heart. Columbus is in Franklin County - with a black mayor. There are 87 OTHER counties in Ohio to be counted. There are more Republicans registered this time around than in 2008 and less Democrats registered.
#13, #14, Yes. Mitt Romney is a smart man with a smart team. Look what he made of the debates, that were as usual formulated as an ambush of the GOP but look what he did. And he surprised everybody at least twice in a major way - the first and the last debates. He knew what was coming and he thought of a strategy around it. Pray for the man and give thanks.
Remember in 1948 it was a leading Chicago newspaper which headlined, "Dewey Beats Truman." If Obama were to win it would show we have degenerated into another Zimbabwe or Russia concerning how the media and elections are fraudulently handled. It will be then that the 1st and 2nd amendments will be thoroughly tested.
It doesn't surprise me that someone who accepts polls at face value believes this. But it does amaze me how many people fall into that category given all the noise that's been made about the flaws in state polls.
Not a convincing article - he gives most of the swing states to Obama but never give any evidence or justification to why he thinks they will go that way. When my state of Virginia, along with Ohio, Wisconsin, and Colorado all go to Romney, I sure he won't admit he was wrong, he'll blame stupid voters or fraud or something silly like that.
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.
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.
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
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).
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.
A 6-year-old boy riding in a car with his mom was shot in the West Garfield Park neighborhood on the West Side overnight, according to police, the boy among at least 13 people shot since Friday afternoon across the city. Police aren’t certain of the boy’s condition but said he was taken to Mount Sinai Hospital. He was in a car in the 4200 block of West Wilcox Street about 11:30 p.m. when someone started shooting.
I have never been much of a conspiracy theorist. For me it was always Oswald by himself from the Texas School Book Depository and nothing in the intervening fifty years has disabused me of this notion. For the most part, I’m an Occam’s Razor kind of guy — the most obvious explanation is likely to be true. (Snip) To put it bluntly, Occam’s Razor has moved. Things that were once possibilities now seem almost certainties to me. Principal among those is that Obama’s academic records are perpetually unavailable for a reason — and that reason is most likely that they reveal
One of President Obama´s chief political assets has been his ability to excite young people like almost no politician in history. But the days of America´s youth fawning over the president are over. A new Harvard University Institute of Politics poll released Wednesday confirms what other surveys have shown in recent months: Millennials have soured on Obama so much this year that their opinion of him largely mirrors the American public´s. Even though Obama does not ever have to face another election, he should be worried about the findings for a couple of reasons, which we will dive into momentarily.
A stunning new study unveiled on Fox News´ Hannity finds that President Barack Obama’s White House calendar records just one face-to-face meeting between Obama and his Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Kathleen Sebelius in the more than three-and-a-half years leading up to the disastrous Obamacare launch. The startling statistic comes from a new Government Accountability Institute (GAI) analysis of Obama’s own official White House calendar, as well as the Politico presidential calendar, and raises new questions about Obama’s executive leadership and management throughout the implementation of his singular legislative achievement. More alarming still, the president’s schedule lists 277 private
[Video] President Obama on Wednesday declared that addressing income inequality would be the focus of “all” of the White House’s efforts “for the rest of my presidency.” In a sweeping address that touched on raising the minimum wage, investing in infrastructure and ending tax breaks for the wealthy, Obama warned that the American economy has become “profoundly unequal,” declaring economic mobility the “challenge of our time.” “The combined trends of increasing inequality and decreasing mobility pose a fundamental threat to the American dream, our way of life, and what we stand for around the globe,” he said in an hour-long
Just over two weeks ago, MSNBC host Martin Bashir delivered a harsh piece of commentary that culminated in the suggestion that someone should “s-h-i-t” in former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin‘s (R-AK) mouth. Bashir offered an abject apology on his next broadcast, but a chorus of critics continued to demand action against the host. After a reported “vacation” for the host earlier this week, Bashir announced, Wednesday afternoon, that MSNBC and Martin Bashir are parting ways. Here’s the statement from Martin Bashir, via email: After making an on-air apology, I asked for permission to take some additional time out around the Thanksgiving holiday. Upon
Amid an array of “knock-out” attacks against a number of Jews in Brooklyn’s Crown Heights neighborhood, a city councilwoman pointed to the success of the Jewish community as triggering the aggression. Councilwoman-elect Laurie Cumbo emphasized that while she “admire[s] the Jewish community immensely” for its work ethic, black teens may see it differently. “While I personally regard this level of tenacity, I also recognize that for others, the accomplishments of the Jewish community triggers feelings of resentment, and a sense that Jewish success is not also their success,” Cumbo, who was recently elected, wrote in a letter. Chief among the issues
America is facing a wave of strikes by its fast-food workers on Thursday a day after Barack Obama warned that inequality in the USA had soared to the point that it now posed "a fundamental threat to the American dream". Low-paid workers in McDonalds, Kentucky Fried Chicken and other fast-food outlets in 100 cities across America were due to start rolling strikes to protest at the low level of America´s $7.25 (£4.45) federal minimum wage. The strikes are the latest part of a mushrooming publicity campaign for higher wages among those working so-called "McJobs", with fast-food restaurants seen as a
