It appears Benghazi may be having an effect.
Barone on the record: Romney will win
Going on the record with 11 days to go, Michael Barone picked Mitt Romney as the winner of the coming election.
Michael Goodwin explains why he’s voting for Romney this time
Where he totally fooled me was his claim to be a pragmatist, not an ideologue. He spoke of uniting the country and I believed he was capable and sincere. That he won 70 million votes and more than two-thirds of the Electoral College spoke to his appeal.
He failed as president because he is incompetent, dishonest and not interested in the actual work of governing. His statist policies helped consign millions of Americans to a lower standard of living and his odious class warfare further divided the nation. He had no intention of uniting the country — it was his Big Lie.
I don’t hate him. But I sure as hell don’t trust him.
US Government spent $60K per household in poverty
New data compiled by the Republican side of the Senate Budget Committee shows that, last year, the United States spent over $60,000 to support welfare programs per each household that is in poverty. The calculations are based on data from the Census, the Office of Management and Budget, and the Congressional Research Services.
"According to the Census’s American Community Survey, the number of households with incomes below the poverty line in 2011 was 16,807,795," the Senate Budget Committee notes. "If you divide total federal and state spending by the number of households with incomes below the poverty line, the average spending per household in poverty was $61,194 in 2011."
What we now know about Benghazi
We’ve not been told the truth by the Obama Administration, but leaks have sprung up.
Luckily, their "firewall" -- blaming the tragedy on a hapless producer of a video trailer, the CIA, and lower level State Department officials -- seem (as one might have predicted, and I did), to result in numerous leaks to the press, undercutting that pack of lies.
The Truth about bin Laden, Al Qaeda, and GM
Joe Biden likes to tell people, “Bin Laden’s dead and GM’s alive” to tout the Obama Administrations greatest successes. If only that were true. The truth is Bin Laden is a martyr, GM is dying and Al Qaeda is alive.
NY Times endorse Barack Obama
The NY Times endorsed Barack Obama for the second time. Of course the last Republican the Times endorsed was Dwight Eisenhower.

A sign Obama will lose
When all else fails tear down the other guy. When that doesn’t work, enlist children to do the same. This video is just creepy and shows how desperate the left is.
Another sign Obama will lose
On election night 2008 Grant Park was thronged with Obama supporters waiting to see their man emerge on the specially-built stage at the south end of huge lakefront park to bask in his historic victory. Not so this year. This year Obama will be in McCormick Place.
The only realistic way of reaching McCormick Place is by taxi (or car, if people drive themselves) this is clearly not a place Obama would be holding an election night event if he really thought he was going to win the election. How on Earth would his throngs of supporters be able to reach him if he won and the event was held here of all places?

Stupid ads are bound to generate parodies. This one is pretty good.
Where are the green jobs?
There was that time that Obama got roughly $90 billion for green energy jobs, or green energy “investments,” as he calls them, which were touted to save us billions of dollars in imported oil and create 5 million green energy jobs.
“The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 set aside $90 billion in renewable energy grants and loans for a grab bag of thousands of projects—wind farms, solar installations, natural gas fueling stations, biofuel research, and a $5 billion weatherization project for low-income homes,” reports BusinessWeek.com. “Digging into the public records of the $21 billion spent so far through 19 U.S. Department of Energy programs reveals 3,960 projects that employ 28,854 people.”
Only 4,971,146 jobs left to go!
Four more years? No, at that rate it would take 693 years for Obama to create 5 million green energy jobs at the rate he created them over the first four years. And at the current cost, Obama would have to spend $3.6 trillion just to create those jobs.
How wrong can one man be before he gets fired? Well seen in just over a week.
