President Obama's senior adviser, David Axelrod, denied on "CBS This Morning" that Mr. Obama is sliding in the polls and that Mitt Romney is gaining momentum. "I don't think there's a slide in the polls; I think there was a bump after the debate," Axelrod said Thursday. "I don't think there's big momentum" for Romney, he said, allowing that the Republican challenger "collected a couple of points." A new Quinnipiac/CBS News/NY Times poll shows Mr. Obama's lead tightening in Wisconsin and Romney with a slight advantage in Colorado.
Comments: Baghdad Dave sticks his head out of the bunker with today's proclaimation.
Have others noticed how Axelrod no longer stands before people and lies after he was heckled in Boston? Since then, it's clear he'd rather do his bit in front of a TV camera. He's a gutless coward and a punk.
One of the biggest satisfactions I'm going to get from this blowout of Obama and his band of flying monkeys is to watch this commie propagandist eat his words on TV (will probably say racism drove Zippy from office)and slither back to the sewer that is Chicago.

Axelrod and Obama both have the same speech pattern. Uh, uh, uh, and, and, and... Is it in the water in Washington, or are they trying to recall the details of the lies they've told? I suspect it is the latter.
Classical Physics Momentum P is a vector. Vector = a factor having a value acting in a direction). P(o)=BHO's momentum P(r)=MR's momentum P=mv^2 P(r)>P(o) at present. With P(r) increasing and P(o) decreasing. Thus Romney's v(r) is increasing and Obamas v(o) is decreasing such that Obama's v(o) will = 0 on Nov. 7, 2012.
Thus Axelrod's intimation is in error because "big" is indeterminate and meaningless.
The data today indicates that Romney's P(r) is growing faster and "bigger" than Obamas P(o).
Back in the 70's & 80's remember the actor Dabney Coleman ? He used to play a lot of smarmy slimey type characters and there's even a resemblance between the two. Axel-mutt is the real life version of these types.
Put out the lawn chair, set the alarm and maybe bring something to wet your whistle while you gaze into the nighttime sky — the year´s best shooting star show has started. August´s annual Perseids meteor shower peaks Sunday and Monday, promising perhaps 70 meteors an hour those evenings. "The Perseids are the good ones," says meteorite expert Bill Cooke of NASA´s Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Ala. The Perseids take their name from their apparent origin in the constellation Perseus, the hero of ancient Greek myth born from a shower
It’s August 2013. What better time to talk about 2016? At this point, Hillary Rodham Clinton has been awarded the Democratic nomination virtually by default and declared the clear favorite to win the general election against her as yet unknown Republican opponent. That’s an overstatement, of course, but just barely. Make no mistake. The former secretary of state, former senator from New York and former first lady is in a commanding position at this very early stage. She stands far above all the others in her party who might seek its nomination.
Two British teenage girls were being treated for burns at a London hospital on Saturday after acid was hurled in their faces in the Indian Ocean island of Zanzibar.(snip)Tanzania is predominantly Muslim, and the attack happened at the end of the Islamic holy month of Ramadan as people were beginning to celebrate the Eid al-Fitr holiday. Some of the island´s more conservative Muslims object to foreign tourists who wear revealing clothes, as well as bars selling alcohol. One of the girls had posted on her Twitter page that she had been hit by a Muslim woman
OHIO: Muslims across the US celebrated Eid on the same day to everyone’s joy and relief. Mosques overflowed with happy worshippers who stood as one ummah in prayer and thanksgiving, enjoying the mild weather, treats and spiritually motivating sermons of the day. US President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle also sent their warmest greetings to Muslims celebrating Eid Al-Fitr around the world, calling it "part of a great tapestry of America´s many traditions."
CHARLOTTE, NC - Local civil rights group True Healing Under God (T.H.U.G.) in collaboration with Temple Church International is holding a countywide workshop this weekend. The self-development workshop is for black boys ages 8-16. It will focus on character improvement, godly principles, discipline, respect, "pulling up their pants", and learning more about the Trayvon Martin case.

ISLAMABAD,: A suicide bomber was killed by security guards while trying to blow himself up at Ali Masjid in Barakahu on Friday. According to an Islamabad police spokesman, the security guard spotted the suicide bomber at the entrance of the Masjid and shot him dead instantly. He said the bomber started firing indiscriminately as he wanted to enter the mosque, where people were leaving after offering Friday prayers.

America´s foreign policy has gone into a tailspin. Almost every major initiative from the Obama administration has run into sharp, sometimes embarrassing, reverses. The U.S. looks weak and confused on the global stage. This might come as happy news to some opponents of the administration who enjoy seeing Barack Obama fail, but it shouldn´t. America´s failure in international strategy is a disaster-in-the-making for its allies and for the people who see the U.S. model of liberal democracy as one worth emulating in their own nations.
George Zimmerman, the former neighborhood watch volunteer acquitted in the murder of unarmed black Florida teen Trayvon Martin, sought to buy a bulletproof vest and a home-security system while out on $1 million bond, according to records released Thursday. The Seminole County, Fla., Sheriff´s Office released a 57-page log obtained by USA TODAY that recorded Zimmerman´s activity last year and this year while he was connected to a GPS system via ankle monitor. Zimmerman was court-ordered to GPS monitoring as a condition of his pre-trial release, said Kim Cannaday, public information officer of the Seminole County Sheriff´s Office.
Russian President Vladimir Putin sent a telegram on Thursday to his old sparring partner, former U.S. President George W. Bush, wishing him a quick recovery from heart surgery. It may have been coincidence that the Kremlin released details of the telegram a day after Barack Obama pulled out of a planned summit with Putin, but little is left to chance in Russian politics. The warm words to the man who once said he looked Putin in the eye and got a "sense of his soul" highlighted how different the relationship
Users have one option: Slap her for speaking. Although several women´s rights organizations have condemned the idea, an anti-Hillary super PAC has refused to remove "Slap Hillary" from their website, allowing individuals to virtually hit the former secretary of state with a click. The Hillary Project posted the clickable graphic earlier this week in which an animated Hillary Clinton stands outside the White House, and users can click "speak" or "slap," cueing a graphic hand to whack her across the face. The game had been on the internet since 2000.
WASHINGTON — Former Massachusetts lawmaker Barney Frank revealed that he doesn’t believe in God. During Friday’s appearance on HBO’s “Real Time With Bill Maher,” Frank, who championed the decriminalization of pot while serving in the House of Representatives, admitted to smoking marijuana and being an atheist. “You were in a fairly safe district. You were not one of those congress people who would have to worry about every little thing,” Maher said to Frank. “You could come on this show and sit next to a pot-smoking atheist and it wouldn’t bother you.”
Joe Arpaio is notoriously tough on his Tent City prisoners. And now he seems to be going Marie Antoinette on them. Over the weekend, the sheriff of Maricopa County, Arizona celebrated the 20th anniversary of the controversial facility in Phoenix , giving inmates access to cake, coffee, unrestricted television, movie rentals, candy cigarettes, and copies of Good Housekeeping and Woman’s Day. According to a press release put out the by the sheriff’s office, Arpaio authorized the so-called “Retro Day” for the 1,000 inmates in the open air jail a treat.
The owner of a shop in Zurich where US talk show host Oprah Winfrey says she encountered racism has called the incident a "misunderstanding". Winfrey, one of the world´s richest women, claimed an assistant refused to serve her in an upmarket handbag shop. She was apparently told one of the bags on display was "too expensive" for her. Shop owner Trudie Gotz told the BBC that Winfrey was "absolutely allowed" to look at the $35,000 (£22,500) bag, which was kept behind a screen. "My salesperson wanted to give her the handbag in her hand. But she didn´t want
While media mogul Oprah Winfrey has been promoting her new film, “Lee Daniels’ The Butler,” she revealed she was a recent victim of profiling while shopping in a store in Zurich.(Snip)“I was in Zurich the other day at a store, whose name I will not mention,” Winfrey said on “Entertainment Tonight,” “and I didn’t have my eyelashes on, but I was in full Oprah Winfrey gear…but obviously, ‘The Oprah Winfrey Show’ is not shown in Zurich. So this doesn’t happen to me unless somebody obviously doesn’t know that it’s me.” Winfrey went on to explain that she was in Zurich for Tina Turner’s wedding,
Nobody tells Oprah she can´t afford a handbag. Oprah Winfrey is one of the richest entertainers in the world, thanks to her willdly successful 25-season run on "The Oprah Winfrey Show" and her latest media foray with the newly revitalized Oprah Winfrey Network (OWN). The entertainer earned an estimated $77 million from June 2012 to June 2013 alone, according to Forbes, but she says she still experiences racism because she is African American. Take this latest incident in Switzerland, where "The Butler" star went to attend the nuptials of good friend and singer Tina Turner last month.
The Washington Post is a legend in the minds of the Washington elite, so its financial decline has caused quiet panic. As NPR media reporter David Folkenflik put it, “You think of stories like the Pentagon Papers, Watergate, these are all stories where The Washington Post led the nation’s understanding, the world’s understanding of some major issues.” Outside the liberal media, you wonder how long Post fans can wallow in their Nixon-crumbling polyester “glory days” in the early 1970s. But nostalgia ruled as the Graham family sold the Post to Jeff Bezos, the billionaire founder of Amazon.com.
At a White House press conference Friday afternoon, President Obama said that health insurance plans offered under Obamacare will be "significantly cheaper" than plans currently on the market, but a string of recent reports say that isn´t true. "What happens on October 1, in 53 days, is for the remaining 15 percent of the population that doesn´t have health insurance, they´re going to be able to go on a website or call up a call center and sign up for affordable, quality health insurance at a significantly cheaper rate than what they can get right now on
The Clintons have decided to rent a different house in the Hamptons this summer after they only received a small portion of their security deposit back from the home they rented last year. The famous Democrats have been frequent visitors to the expensive summer getaway in Long Island, and rented the same beachfront house in 2011 and 2012. [Snip] When it comes to rentals in the Hamptons, many owners use the security deposits as a way to pay for the utility fees like heat and grounds-keeping charges. It should be little surprise then that the Lily Pond Lane home
Eydie Gorme, a popular nightclub and television singer as a solo act and as a team with her husband, Steve Lawrence, has died. She was 84. Gorme, who also had a huge solo hit in 1963 with "Blame it on the Bossa Nova," died Saturday at Sunrise Hospital in Las Vegas following a brief, undisclosed illness, said her publicist, Howard Bragman. Gorme was a successful band singer and nightclub entertainer when she was invited to join the cast of Steve Allen´s local New York television show in 1953. She sang solos and also did duets and comedy skits with Lawrence, a rising young singer who had joined
During his Wednesday appearance on Jay Leno´s "Tonight Show,´ President Obama made three factual gaffes; one of them involved the claim that cities not found along the Gulf of Mexico are. Were Obama a Republican, these gaffes would have led news coverage for the next forty-eight hours. Not only did most of the media ignore or downplay these gaffes; the Associated Press went so far as to cover one of them up. In its coverage Thursday, rather than point out the president´s geographical error, the wire service made it look as though no error was made.
Forty to 50 House Republicans will support immigration reform, Rep. Luis Gutiérrez (D-Ill.) predicted Thursday. Gutiérrez said many of the Republicans supportive of immigration reform don’t want to be identified, but he insisted they would support comprehensive immigration reform. “If they ask me today, go find those 40 to 50 Republicans, I’ll tell them I found them. I know where they’re at,” Gutiérrez said in an interview with Ed O’Keefe at The Washington Post.
President Barack Obama announced Friday afternoon that the White House will publicly release a summary of the legal authorities through which the National Security Agency conducts its controversial surveillance programs. ´Given the history of abuse by governments,´ he said, it is important to explain how such a program is managed, and - equally important - what it may not do. He described his working relationship with Vladimir Putin as ´candid´ and ´blunt,´ and seemed to dismiss concerns that the Russian president´s body language indicated a lack of willingness to work with the United States.
EDGARTOWN, Mass. — President Barack Obama opened the first summer vacation of his second term Saturday on Martha’s Vineyard, trading Washington debates over the budget, government surveillance and his health care overhaul for a hoped-for carefree week filled with golf, beach outings and hanging-out time with family and friends. (Snip) As Air Force One flew north, Obama got into a vacation mindset by trading his suit and tie for more suitable attire: khakis and a blue shirt with rolled-up sleeves. First lady Michelle Obama, who introduced him at the convention, kept her yellow-and-white
During a press conference yesterday, President Obama revealed the existence of a sealed indictment in the Benghazi attacks in Libya on September 11, 2012, leaving some experts questioning whether the president broke the law. Federal law states that ´no person may disclose [a sealed] indictment´s existence,´ and that doing so may be ´punished as a contempt of court,´ a charge that carries a minimum sentence of six months prison. The announcement came as a surprise to some insiders, as the existence of a sealed indictment has not been publicly confirmed or denied by law enforcement or
