President Romney

Did Obama lose the first debate or did Romney win it?

Conventional wisdom holds that Barack Obama "lost" in Denver because he lacked intensity. He brought his A-game to Hofstra this week. There's still a problem.
The most significant event in the 2012 presidential election remains the Romney miracle bump after the first debate. If Mr. Romney wins the election, analysts and scholars will spend years picking apart the Denver debate the way they have the 1960 Kennedy-Nixon debate.
If the pundits do that, they will be wrong.  Obama’s record says he should lose and lose big in November.  History shows us that a bad economy makes for one term presidents.  Obama staked his reelection bid on the strategy that was reported as “kill Romney.”  He spent $220 million on smearing Romney trying to make him unacceptable and drive people who wouldn’t vote for Obama again to not vote at all.  It would then become a base election and Obama spent a lot of money setting up his ground game.  

The first debate destroyed this strategy.  It wasn’t Obama’s lackluster performance (although that didn’t help) but Romney’s excellent performance.  Romney took himself from unacceptable to acceptable and the voters Obama was trying to keep away from the polls saw that.  They will come out and will vote against Obama.  In the meantime, Romney performance in the debates has elevated him among his base from their voting against Obama into voting for Romney.  

It’s over.  The next debate will not move anyone.  This debate doesn’t matter.  The momentum is there and as I’ve said since Romney won the nomination back in April, he will win by at least as much as Obama won in 2008.  It won’t be close.  In fact the real issue is going to be how many seats will the Democrats lose down ticket.  

Another sign it is over

The latest Rasmussen poll has those who strongly approve of Obama performance at 30% and those who strongly disapprove at 44% which gives Obama a -14%.  But that isn’t the issue.  These voters will vote either for Obama (30%) or against Obama (44%).  Here’s Obama’s dilemma.  He must win 20% of the remaining 26% of voters who don’t feel strongly either way.  This amounts to 77% of the likely voters who aren’t strongly in favor or against Mr. Obama. 

Benghazi, Candy and the President

Did Romney make a political mistake in the second debate on the Benghazi question or did Obama?  It appears Obama opened the door for the next debate to be proven to be a liar on national TV.

Mr. President:  Were you lying then or are you lying now?

The President clearly misled the American people with this claim, because if Obama’s Rose Garden speech was indeed the White House position, it did not inform any subsequent statement by the White House press office — and was even directly contradicted by his own spokesman several days later.
On September 20 — eight days after Obama claims to have called the Benghazi attack an “act of terror” — Jay Carney affirmed to reporters that the White House had never called it “a terrorist attack.”

The Top Ten Lies Obama told on Tuesday Night

Here’s a list of the top ten lies Obama told at the second debate. 

Great new Ad

Michelle Obama:  Barack didn’t point fingers

First lady Michelle Obama said Wednesday that President Obama did not look to blame others for the challenges he faced as president, an apparent rebuke of Republican accusations that the White House continues to point the finger at President George W. Bush for the lagging economy.
"See, but your president, he didn't point fingers," Michelle Obama said at a campaign fundraiser in New York. "He didn't place blame. Instead, he got to work, because he was thinking about folks like my dad and like his grandmother.

It appears more than just President Obama can tell untruths with a straight face. 

White Voters support Romney by a lot

Political analysts (including The Fix) spend a good bit of time these days talking about important voter groups — Latino voters and female voters, in particular.

But all of the focus on these groups has obfuscated one fact: Mitt Romney is performing very, very well among white voters. And in fact, most recent polls show him winning the white vote by more than any GOP presidential candidate since Ronald Reagan.

Desperate Obama Campaign invents Bindergate

Women who worked under Mitt Romney when he was Governor of Massachusetts are speaking out against the latest "binders full of women" faux controversy. As Romney said during the presidential debate Tuesday night, he had more women in high power positions during his time as governor than any other governor in the country, yet liberals are desperately trying to continue their pathetic "war on women" meme.

“He totally gets working women, especially working women like myself who had two young kids,” Ellen Roy Herzfelder, a former state secretary of environmental affairs, says in the 30-second ad.

Kerry Healey, Romney’s former lieutenant governor, said 10 of the 20 top positions in the administration were filled by women -- more than any other state in the nation.

October 16:  The Day the Media was completely exposed

The second presidential debate confirmed to the world that the press is completely in bed with President Obama and the Democratic Party and cannot be counted on as a fair arbiter of the truth.

13 Citizen from Cedar Rapids apologize for voting for Barack Obama in 2008

They promise they won’t make that mistake again in a front page ad the put in the Cedar Rapids Gazette.

Actually there are a lot more Americans who owe us an apology.

First time unemployment applications soar by 46,000

Weekly applications for U.S. unemployment benefits jumped 46,000 last week to a seasonally adjusted 388,000, the highest in four months.

This probably isn’t fair since last week’s applications were obviously understated. 

Brit Hume:  ‘I thought I was seeing the face of God.’

Brit Hume talks about the death of his son in a very uplifting interview.

Obama’s chief complaint against John Roberts

This one will floor you:  

I think that he has been a little bit too willing and eager to give an administration, whether it's mine or George Bush's, more power than I think the Constitution originally intended.
