Last Debate

AAA third debate
The Checkpoint Scandal

It appears President Obama has two sets of standards in the Middle East; one for Israel and a different one for Muslim states. 

Binders full of women—the real scandal

Why has the phrase "binders full of women" captured the progressive imagination more than any other of the hundreds exchanged between Romney and Obama during the second presidential debate?

Reasonable people are scratching their heads: what is so terribly wrong with this seemingly innocuous, if awkward, way to describe Mitt Romney's efforts to find qualified female applicants? 
Deep down in the warped labyrinth of the progressive mind, even as they self-righteously deride Mitt Romney's "binder" comment, there's likely to be found a sub-cellar full of imaginary bound women: nude and wrapped in chains; some tied to a bed or a pole, others hanging from rings in the ceiling; crouching in the center of a Middle Eastern slave market or in a Planned Parenthood clinic; all set up to be used, tortured, raped -- or, if the master so desires, saved and cuddled.

When I first heard about it I didn’t have any idea of what the left was talking about.  My three year old granddaughter had learned the song Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds.  She thought it was funny to say, “Lucy in the sky with poopee.”  It appears lefties seem to have the same level of intellectual understanding as a three year old.

Argentina vs the USA:  A warning for America

How did a Christian country, with a European population, a negligible racial problem, and enormous natural and agricultural wealth screw up?  How did a country with a liberal constitution cycle in and out of dictatorship?  How did a country that was the fourth-richest per capita on the planet in 1929 fall so hard?  How is it that Argentina regularly cycles between enormous first-world wealth and third-world economic collapse?

The answer, in a word, is government.  Argentina is a frightening example to prove that bad government can destroy even a potential heaven on earth.

A Prediction for tonight’s debate

Any points Romney makes will be characterized by the Obama team as Romney politicizing foreign affairs. 

Has the end of Obama already begun?

Mitt Romney enters the final two weeks of the presidential campaign looking very much like the next president of the United States, and it is not merely poll data that creates this impression. President Obama's own campaign has begun to emit clear signals that the incumbent's re-election prospects are dwindling, and anecdotal evidence of strong.

Running on empty

Honk if you have any idea of what Obama’s second term agenda is and how he plans to enact it.  Now honk twice if you heard the MSM badger him about this.  Notice how quiet it is? 

Defiance Ohio:  A look at the battle for Ohio

For more than 50 years, the economic fate of this tiny town in northwest Ohio has been inextricably linked to the health of GM, its largest employer.

And so when two local lawyers put up a billboard in the cornfield across from Defiance’s GM plant with a picture of the GM logo above the word “alive” and a photo of Osama bin Laden above the word “dead,” you might have expected nods of approval.

Instead, in this deeply conservative corner of the state not far from the Indiana border, the billboard — and two others posted in town — have proved highly controversial

For Democrats, this may be the town President Obama helped save with the auto bailout. But, in a twist, Defiance and places like it could end up saving Mitt Romney in all-important Ohio.

Obama’s Plan to eliminate the deficit

“We need to eliminate a whole host of programs that don't work. And I want to go through the federal budget line by line, page by page, programs that don't work, we should cut. Programs that we need, we should make them work better.”

The only problem is that he made this statement in the last debate in 2008.  Now what were those “whole host of programs” President Obama has eliminated? 

Christie takes down Barack Obama 

He attacks Obama saying he can’t change Washington from the inside.  It’s not his fault you know?  He doesn’t know how to lead. 

Always Check the Demographics

President Barack Obama still leads Mitt Romney in Ohio, but the margin has narrowed substantially in the past month, according to a poll released Monday morning by Quinnipiac University and CBS News.
Obama held a 5-point lead among likely voters, winning 50 percent to Romney's 45 percent, according to the poll. In September, Obama held by twice the margin, 53 to 43.

This is designed to make Democrats nervous, but discourage Republicans.  The Demographics on this poll was 35% Democrats, 26% Republicans, and 34% Independents.  But the actual demographics in Ohio are 36% Democrats, 37% Republicans and 27% Independents.  Using these numbers you end up with Obama at 48% and Romney at 52%. 

Obama ad charges Romney “not one of us”

Does the Obama campaign want Mitt Romney’s birth certificate?   I guess this isn’t 2004 anymore.

In Search of Excellent—excuses that is

If Mitt Romney wins the presidency, expect the Democrats to complain that the Republicans bought the election — and to try to outlaw it from ever happening again.

Republican Tommy Thompson regains Lead in Senate Race

In a contest where the lead has been going back and forth, former governor Tommy Thompson is ahead by one point among registered voters.
