An appeal to America’s heart
Washington Post, by Michael Gerson

Original Article

Posted By:Dreadnought, 10/25/2012 11:11:50 PM

The last days of the 2012 presidential election are a study in contrasts. Barack Obama has chosen to end his final campaign with an appeal both sour and small — Big Bird, binders and Romnesia. It is little wonder that Mitt Romney’s personal favorability rating now exceeds the president’s. Obama’s closing message is remarkable for its aggression, mocking tone and sheer triviality. The Romney campaign is ending larger than it has been. Romney has used his final weeks to position himself — his critics would say reposition himself — as a moderate conservative, dedicated to bipartisan progress. Obama attacks Romney

The WP no less. R/R represents everything that is good about America. 8 years of Romney and another 8 of Ryan and we will be on the right track. With exploding libtard heads all around to entertain us.

Obama has be-littled himself.
The problem is that he did not have a record that he could run on and had to spend a billion dollars going ugly and negative.

The Obama Campaign has devolved into a juvenile tirade against his competition and the world's greatest community organizer and campaigner is not getting any more magic words from his teleprompters other than a combination of words similar to bovine and scat.

Perhaps he is seeking the vote of the vocabulary challenged now since he apparently has been has been seeking practically every other demographic.

Primates in the zoo fling poo, could our president begin seeking the vote of the country's proctologists next?

I predict that Obama will deliver the snottiest, most ungracious concession speech in American history - with his bride standing next to him glaring at the cameras.

Loved it last night that Rumsfeld, on Greta's show, referred at least 2 times and possibly 3 to "President Romney." Not the hypothetical "a President Romney," but in a direct reference to Romney.

Whereas Zippy just look like a Residential squatter.

Sitting here watching Morning Joe. You may be surprised to hear that despite all polls, size of crowds and President Obama's pathetic end days in this campaign, he's winning!

Seriously, do these people delude themselves in every aspect of their lives or are they just blind on this issue? I think a psychiatrist could have a field day with the characters on MSNBC.

Agree with other Morning Joe watchers on here, what are they smoking?

It's all 'Obama's in the lead', 'Romney has no chance', now Ed Morrissey is on, and Mika is being downright nasty and rude. She read one of Ed's articles, and sneered, 'wow, I don't even know where to begin'. And this is a woman who fawns over Axelrod and Ezra Klein.

#10 maybe they think that BO ground game is better than Romeny's? Therefore its a foregone conclusion that BO will win in Nov? Maybe they know the dems cheat and will do anything to win.

I personally wouldn't put anything past them.
I hope Romney wins, I want Romney to win, but the dems cheat and they are going to contest any swing state that they lose. It's what they do!

Mitt learned how to become a good candidate. He's impressed me this year. I will always remember one little line from the first debate, I think it was. Just this:

'People are really HURTING out there.' It was the way he said it. He truly sounded deeply worried and concerned. It was very very believable. I'd argue that he has shown more compassion for the suffering in this cycle than the Chicago Gangster has.

FTA: ''Obama’s closing message is remarkable for its aggression, mocking tone and sheer triviality.''

Obama War Room: Tricks and Shticks

OBAMA: Gerson's a tool. Jay, get the IRS on his case. Gloria?
ALLRED: Nothing, sir. Questions in a twenty-year old divorce case about stock valuations.
OBAMA: Can't anybody here play this game?
ALLRED: I have an op-ed in the Times tomorrow on the War on Women and Romney’s raging libido, sir. Five sons! What he put his poor wife through, popping out all those babies.
OBAMA: Piddling stuff. I want to destroy Romney, not embarrass him.
DAVID AXELROD: I’ve had a dozen PIs following Romney around, sitting in toilet stalls and waiting for him to come into the bathroom and take the next cubicle. In two instances, he did. My guys slid a foot over and tapped suggestively, but Romney didn’t take the bait.
JAY CARNEY: On your say so, sir, Media Matters will release a photoshopped picture of Romney going into a motel room with Helen Thomas.
OBAMA: Make it so. What else we got?
CARNEY: We’ve arranged for NBC to tape moving interactions between you and actors on rope lines, sir. For example, you'll meet Florita the Home Health Care Aide, Ehud the Jewish OB/GYN, Abdul the Rug Merchant, Alejandro the Garbageman, and others. Since they’re plants, Brian Williams will show no interest in their backgrounds.
OBAMA: That it?
DAVID PLOUFFE: SEIU thugs wearing Tea Party tees will attack your supporters at the rally in Columbus tomorrow, sir. You'll tell your Secret Service detail to stand down, then wade into the melee and beat back the ruffians by yourself with an American flag wrapped around your shoulders like Superman’s cape.
OBAMA: Up Up and away!

“For it is dangerous to attach one's self to the crowd in front, and so long as each one of us is more willing to trust another than to judge for himself, we never show any judgement in the matter of living, but always a blind trust, and a mistake that has been passed on from hand to hand finally involves us and works our destruction. It is the example of other people that is our undoing; let us merely separate ourselves from the crowd, and we shall be made whole. But as it is, the populace,, defending its own iniquity, pits itself against reason. And so we see the same thing happening that happens at the elections, where, when the fickle breeze of popular favour has shifted, the very same persons who chose the praetors wonder that those praetors were chosen.”
― Seneca

Good vs. evil. I choose good and I believe the majority of Americans will also. I am so weary of situational ethics. It is time a man of character and love for this country is sitting in the oval office. It will also be refreshing to see a pleasant face on the First Lady. President and Mrs. Romney will restore the respect and dignity this country has been lacking these past four years.

Prediction:
You will hear a great deal of bitterness in O's post presidency. He will be rousing up as many as he can as he journeys about giving speeches.

There will be books galore about the failures of his administration, lots of gossipy stuff. Woodward will write another tome, this one about Bengahzigate.

After a few weeks on the Hawaiian beach and a few pictures in glossy magazines of the splendor which is their life style, Moochele will suddenly realize she is out of the loop and will yearn to get back to Chicago.

It is all written in the stars.

Michael Gerson is a pathetic inside the betlway faux conservative. I stopped reading when he proves he is too shallow to understand the depth of Ayn Rand - calling it an "embarrassing flirtation" of Ryan's.

What an idiot Gerson is. Like Ryan, I take Rand for her prophetic genius even if she, as an atheist, has no clue where her gifting came from.

Gerson is shallow numbskull. Faux Conservative.

#2 - But Obama does have a record to run on -- that is, a record he's running away from -- which is why he must try to distract everyone with trivia.

He ran on personality and a good speech writer. He thought he could do that again. But keeping up the pretense of like ability is too hard, and his speech writer is overworked ans exhausted. His silver tongue is not working. He thought all presidents did was talk and fly around on Air Force One.

It hit me yesterday. IF the lightbringer had just done his job. Instead of doing anything to avoid doing his job, he might be in a better place. He has spent so much energy working on the wrong things. Style over substance. It reminds me of George on Seinfeld, working so hard not to work. Lie after lie when just doing what you should would get you further. Oh well it will soon be over.

As for cheating, probably, unfortunately they don't know how much they have to cheat by. The polls have misled them, and many people are not sharing how they will vote. I feared that John Corzine would cheat in the NJ gov race, knowing what I know about the DNC in that state, and he lost by 5% which was simply amazing. My hubs was on edge all that election night because he knew there were bought votes on Corzine's side. But the margin was too big and unknown. IF it ain't close they can't cheat. Lets make it so!!!

The WP has range of OP/ED writers - that includes Gerson, George Will, and Jennifer Rubin. They also have Leftoids who will lower your IQ merely by reading them. However, over all, the paper leans left - not as left as the NYT though. Those guys make no attempt at balance.

Let Obama go back to his participation in the
"Low Down" club of his earlier tutor the Rev.Wright at his Chicago Church and resume to practice his sexual preferences. Michelle will grab whataver she can carry out of the WH without being noticed and it would not be surprise if she files for divorce now that the party is over. The arranger of her marriage - the Rev.Wright and Rev. Jackson should help her out of this marriage if they can find a truly heterosexual male who is willing to put up with her. Good Luck on that one!

When we look at B.Hussein we see a man who is cold, calculating and mean. How could a President go to bed when his man, Ambassador to Libya, is being murdered? How could a President leave D.C. for Vegas the morning after his Ambassador was murdered? How could he blame and put an American citizen in jail for a Youtube video? Answer: a cold, heartless man who only loves himself.

As for Morning Joe and all the rest like them, if they persist in deluding themselves, the shock will be all the more difficult for them. Too bad.

The Benghazi story continues, and every day there's new shocking info. The msm trying to ignore, but it's getting out. It's truly a disgusting story of indifference and incompetence. They are embarassing themselves over and over, now today with Panetta's pathetic excuses.

Obama is reduced to making incendiary statements and ads to try and scare up even the faintest trace of enthusiasm in his liberal base, while Romney is working to expand the electoral map. That tells me all I need to know, right there.

Sagman does another great dialog! I love the Helen Thomas reference...eeeeeewwww!!!!

#21, bad bad bad!!!

The radical lefties had their opportunity to show the world just how wonderful their ideology is. They had a supermajority in Congress, a very good chunk of the SCOTUS and they had the Executive Branch. They also had a zillion czars who were not accountable to anyone (except maybe the President), they owned the meda, and the President himself enacted quite a few executive orders and bypassed Congress whenever he felt like it. STILL, they failed. They did nothing to prove their side worthy of any merit at all (though we knew that all along because we KNOW that leftism doesn't work and only helps enrich and empower a small elite few at the top at the expense of everyone else.)

#64, I’d be the FIRST to jump on anyone who wrongly attacks blacks, gays or anyone else. And I do when a few people lose perspective once in a while because their anger at what is happening to our country gets the best of them. But it’s not out of any real hatred. I know these people and they’re very good and caring folks. The truth is that in 2008, according to all the media, 92% of blacks DID vote for Obama and we know that most of them did do so because he was black--That is a fact. Now I don't think that people will do that again this year. I know too many people (of color) who think this president is a liar and has hurt them economically as well as hurt this country. The leftists are the real racists and liars and always have been. It is history that can be verified--look it up. If someone is constantly (and wrongly) called "racist" by leftist liars over and over again it is understandable if they sometimes lash out. How would you like it if every time you opened your mouth, someone called you some reprehensible name? Yes, you might want to go back to DU or DK, if you are not comfortable here. Obviously, you bought the lies about Romney--especially that comment about 47% that’s taken out of context and continually misquoted. You 're also wrong about McConnell--The Dems had a supermajority and no amount of filibustering would have stopped them. Anyway, it is clear that you lack patience and open-mindedness and just repeat the same leftist rhetoric. We have truth on our side...unlike the left, we don't need to stoop to lies.

By this time next year Obama will be a member of the Super One Percent, financially speaking that is. He`ll be making as many speeches a month as possible at $250000 a pop. I wonder if he`1l be redistributing his newly gotten gains to those less fortunate or hide most of it offshore like the Clinton`s? After all, how much money does he really need? When is enough enough?

We all know the answer to that.....

Wendy Davis Ethical Questions Surface
Breitbart Texas, by Bob Price    Original Article
Posted By: Dreadnought- 4/14/2014 8:58:53 AM     Post Reply
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

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

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

OVERLAND PARK, Kan. — Three people were shot and killed Sunday afternoon in suburban Kansas City, and a spokeswoman for a local hospital said a 15-year-old boy is in critical condition. Overland Park city spokesman Sean Reilly says two people died at the Jewish Community Center of Greater Kansas City campus and one was killed at Village Shalom, which is a retirement community that is several blocks away from the center. Overland Park Fire Department spokesman Jason Rhodes said Sunday afternoon that one person of interest is in custody. The Jewish Community Center of Greater Kansas City in Overland Park

Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin blasted President Barack Obama for nominating as his new Health and Human Services Secretary the same woman who ordered the shutdown of the war memorials during the so-called government shutdown last year. After accepting Kathleen Sebelius´ resignation Friday, Obama nominated Sylvia Burwell, the former Office of Management and Budget director. This is the same person who sent the email initiating the barricading of the memorials, even as veterans were arriving in D.C. on their "honor flights" to see the memorials that they built.

Following the massacre of grammar-school children in Newtown, Conn., in December 2012, high-powered weapons have been used to kill innocent victims in more senseless public incidents. Those killings, however, are only a fragment of the total harm caused by the misuse of firearms. Each year, more than 30,000 people die in the United States in firearm-related incidents. Many of those deaths involve handguns. The adoption of rules that will lessen the number of those incidents should be a matter of primary concern to both federal and state legislators. Legislatures are in a far better position than judges to assess the

U.S. blocks Iran’s pick as envoy to

The Obama administration said Friday that it would block Iran’s nominee as ambassador to the United Nations from entering the United States, setting up a new confrontation with Tehran just as relations with the Islamic republic appeared to be improving. The decision to bar entry to the diplomat, who was allegedly involved in the 1979 seizure of the U.S. Embassy in Tehran, followed intense political pressure on the administration from Republicans and Democrats on Capitol Hill. But it also marked a rare instance in which Washington has effectively vetoed another country’s preferred choice as envoy to the United Nations. Iran

Distressed homeowners seeking

Struggling homeowners across the country could face significant new tax bills if they receive mortgage relief from their banks, a prospect that threatens to slow the housing recovery and put further strain on distressed borrowers. The collapse of the housing market and plunging home prices left millions of people stuck owing more on their mortgages than their homes were worth. Some have worked with their banks to reduce the loan amount to avoid foreclosure or enable a sale. In 2007, Congress adopted a law that spared those homeowners from being taxed on the amount of the loan that was forgiven. But

On Thursday, Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius resigned her position. The New York Times reported the resignation as a punishment for failure: Officials said Ms. Sebelius, 65, made the decision to resign and was not forced out. But the frustration at the White House over her performance had become increasingly clear, as administration aides worried that the crippling problems at HealthCare.gov, the website set up to enroll Americans in insurance exchanges, would result in lasting damage to the president’s legacy. So Sebelius stuck around just long enough to reach the mythical 7 million enrollment number

The House Oversight Committee has voted to hold former IRS subpotentate Lois Lerner in contempt of Congress, while the House Ways and Means Committee has referred her case to the Justice Department for criminal prosecution. The facts in the case suggest very strongly that Ms. Lerner has earned the contempt of the American people as well as criminal prosecution to the full extent of the law. The question of whether Justice will do justice now rests with the Obama administration, in service to which Ms. Lerner organized and oversaw the repression of nonprofit activists under color of IRS authority.

Who throws a shoe? Honestly! That would be 36-year-old Alison Ernst of Phoenix, Arizona, who was charged Thursday night with disorderly conduct by the Las Vegas Police Department after allegedly throwing a shoe at former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. According to NBC News, who spoke with a Secret Service official, the U.S. Attorney’s office has declined federal prosecution. Ernst was wearing shoes on Thursday night when she attended a speech Clinton was giving in Las Vegas, but apparently brought an extra one specifically to throw at the former secretary of state. The official said the incident appeared to be “premeditated.”

A Nevada cattle rancher appears to have won his week-long battle with the federal government over a controversial cattle roundup that had led to the arrest of several protesters. Cliven Bundy went head to head with the Bureau of Land Management over the removal of hundreds of his cattle from federal land, where the government said they were grazing illegally. Bundy claims his herd of roughly 900 cattle have grazed on the land along the riverbed near Bunkerville, 80 miles northeast of Las Vegas, since 1870 and threatened a "range war" against the BLM on the Bundy Ranch website after one of

And let me add a bit of clarity: they had no choice!

They’re both qualified, respectful of each other (shocker!), and represent the vast majority of middle America. So what’s not to like about another Clinton/Bush race for 2016? When you mention the prospect of Clinton vs. Bush 2016 a funny thing happens. First, there is the reflexive response: "Oh no, not again. We don´t need more dynastic politics in this country." But upon further reflection, you realize Jeb Bush vs. Hillary Clinton would be a great race and actually good for the country. Let´s review. QUALIFICATIONS—THEY’VE BOTH GOT THEM.

A rapid shift to wind and solar power is needed if the world is to avoid catastrophic global warming, the United Nations warns in a crucial report today. Emissions of greenhouse gases need to be cut by up to 70 per cent before 2050 to control climate change, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) says. ‘Large-scale changes in energy systems’ are required, with coal power stations to be switched off and replaced by wind and solar. And the transformation needs to be made in the next 15 years or controlling climate change will become increasingly harder and more expensive. The report was published

LAS VEGAS — The Nevada Republican Party stripped opposition to abortion and gay marriage from its platform Saturday as state convention delegates instead focused on judging fellow Republicans on their worthiness to serve in office and adherence to GOP values. The platform, with few changes, was adopted overwhelmingly as the Las Vegas convention stretched late into the evening. The vote mirrors that of the Clark County GOP, which voted earlier to remove platform language defining marriage as between a man and a woman and statements opposing abortion. Many Republicans are re-evaluating their strong stances on conservative social issues as public

Say what you will about Sens. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) and Ted Cruz (R-Tex.), but they know a train wreck when they see it. They also know when to separate themselves from the cranks and the losers on the right. Although both supported the shutdown and were heartily supported by tea party groups in their own Senate races, neither one has endorsed Matt Bevin in Kentucky, Milton Wolf in Kansas or Chris McDaniel in Mississippi. In fact, Cruz’s office confirms he hasn’t endorsed anyone in the primaries. He may weigh in after the primaries. Rand Paul has endorsed two very establishment

Surveillance footage shows eight women piling into a Sunglass Hut and crowding around display cases. Shielding workers from what they´re doing, they quickly stuff dozens of fashion specs into their bags. A store clerk pleads with them to stop, before running out of the shot to get help and dial 911.

It’s hardly been a secret that in recent years the moderate center of the Democrat party has been driven away and what remains is a conglomeration of disparate blocs which, to date, the party has been able to treat as if there were no conflicting interests between them. As the midterm elections approach and the administration’s incompetence, along with the distaste for the president’s signature ObamaCare legislation, drive the party’s chances down further, the make-believe coalition of opposites may well crumble if the opposition doesn’t blow it. Democrats hope to retain control of the Senate and recapture the House by driving
