Polls, panic and peaks

Obama Ad regarding Romney:  “He’s not one of us”

I remember when Obama was the rising star who told us, “There’s not a black America and white America and Latino America and Asian America; there’s the United States of America.”  How far the mighty has fallen.

Panic on the left?

President Obama can make all the jokes he want about Mitt Romney’s “binders,” but Obama’s the one in the bind.

He’s tossed everything and the kitchen sink at Romney. He’s even thrown in Big Bird. Now he’s calling Mitt “sketchy” — a term women use to describe men who give them the willies.

Mr. Obama has nothing to say about positive either for his record or about Mitt Romney.  Hence we get minutiae.

Obama’s fade has begun

The president of course has his passionate supporters. These are the same people that spent last Tuesday night declaring him the winner of his second meeting with Mitt Romney, and Wednesday and Thursday trying to infuse the word “binder” with game-changing significance.
They are the same people who spent Friday denying that “not optimal” was not a big deal.
“Binder” –big deal. “Not optimal” –no deal at all. That’s the state of the Obama campaign: A nearly Orwellian effort at making some words matter and others disappear while facts are pushed aside It hasn’t worked. It won’t work..

Mitt Romney by contrast followed two very strong debate showings with a wonderful set of remarks at the Al Smith dinner, the third time in two weeks that he has reassured those just tuning into the presidential campaign that he will be a steady and reliable force for good in the Oval Office.
Romney was ready for his close up. This is the primary reason behind his surge.

Rasmussen:  Swing state poll Romney over 50%

In the 11 swing states, Mitt Romney earns 50% of the vote to Obama’s 46%.  One percent (1%) likes another candidate in the race, and three percent (3%) are undecided.

Over two weeks to go and the Firewall is falling down

If you are a democrat, be afraid, very afraid.

Obama’s hometown Jewish newspaper endorses Mitt Romney

“It is not only that Mr. Obama thus deserves to be a one-term proposition; it is that Mr. Romney is simply the better bet for our country.” writes the Chicago Jewish Star.

How the terms have changed

John Stuart Mill famously spoke of “a party of order and stability, and a party of progress or reform.” Once upon a time, Barack Obama and Joe Biden could claim the mantle of change and progress. But the televised exchanges between Mitt Romney and Obama and Paul Ryan and Biden have revealed that this is no longer the case.

The Republicans are now the ones offering ideas of progress or reform, while the Democrats fiercely fight to protect the established order of entitle-ments, tax hikes, and obeisance to unions, greens, and feminists. Even when Obama and Biden have been highly caffeinated, they have not stated their plans and goals for a second term. They are too busy painting a socialist--realist mural of Romney and Ryan as maniacal reactionaries. They are too preoccupied with protecting subsidies for Big Bird, Planned Parenthood, and windmills.

I think the left still believes they are the party of progress, but they haven’t been that in thirty years. 

Is Benghazi important?  How about Fort Hood?

A must watch video.  Did you know none of the victims got a purple heart?

Who’s to blame:  Democrats take a look

New York Times columnist Gail Collins began her column last week as follows, "When Democrats run into each other on elevators, they exchange glances and sigh. Or make little whimpering sounds." She went on to observe that "Democrats are going bipolar. Democrats spend all their waking hours thinking about the swing states. If Wisconsin starts looking wobbly, their day is ruined." It makes you wonder what their days are going to be like if Obama loses the actual election.

Liberals are angry and frustrated with Obama. He, however, is not the real object of their anger. Someone once observed, "Our strongest anger is reserved for ourselves." (If you doubt that, just ask any golfer.) Liberals are angry and frustrated with themselves because they bought into the fantasy of Barack Obama.

Green Technology:  He, who lives by the subsidy, dies by the subsidy

An interesting telling of why Obama’s green tech revolution has failed to produce what Obama promised.
