Look! If we tilt the poll to this extreme, it comes to a Draw!

This is worse than bad, it’s obscene. Romney has gained 3 points since the last time CNN ran its poll, in late September, when Obama led 50%-47%. That is good news for the Republican ticket, especially since the poll was conducted after Hurricane Sandy. Yet there is something odd–and even ridiculous–in the poll’s sample: of… Continue reading Look! If we tilt the poll to this extreme, it comes to a Draw!

Why America won’t (or at least shouldn’t) vote Obama another term (Part 2)

(Continued from Part 1) 8. He has some really, really bad friends Like this one. Or his beloved pastor. Or how about Bill Ayers, unrepentant terrorist. Barack Obama would have you believe that, after 20 years of friendship, he had no idea the Rev. Jeremiah Wright was a bomb-throwing racial demagogue. And that after 15 years of what he described… Continue reading Why America won’t (or at least shouldn’t) vote Obama another term (Part 2)

Why America won’t (or at least shouldn’t) vote Obama another term

I’ve run across a number of New Zealanders who are incredulous that Obama is not romping home. To be fair, the ignorance this displays is understandable as our media simply doesn’t give us the information that Americans have access to. So I thought I’d compile together just a few of the reasons I read in conservative (and… Continue reading Why America won’t (or at least shouldn’t) vote Obama another term

Obama’s Watergate

The Benghazi scandal just gets worse and worse. Now, we’re being told that armed forces were ordered not to help.  Extraordinary. At this rate, Obama won’t want to win another term because if he does, he’s going to get the same treatment that Nixon got. You’re talking wall to wall misery, investigations at every turn, a demoralised white… Continue reading Obama’s Watergate

Trolling ignorant Obama Supporters

This is really funny. Interesting how every Obama supporter they interviewed was so happy with Paul Ryan being his VP pick, and so few have a problem with Romney even though he is black. (And as a non-partisan aside, yes I have no doubt this also works the other way!)

US Politics Obama Vs. Obama

I think that to some extent you can do this with most candidates, but Obama seems especially prone to contradicting his earlier self. In this case, he’s piously taking the high ground now. Clearly he’s hoping that no one call him on it. Needless to say, the media won’t.

Quote of the Day – Obama Edition

I will be held accountable. I’ve got four years . . . If I don’t have this done in three years, then there is going to be a one term proposition.” Woops. Also, this video is worth a look.

Dog Whistling and Racism in US Politics

The Daily Caller has a good piece on the American left’s obsession with finding racism everywhere. Last night, Ann Romney sought to dispel the notion that somehow she and Mitt have had a “storybook marriage.” So she pointed out that their life together included struggles, such as her MS and breast cancer. And then she concluded: “What… Continue reading Dog Whistling and Racism in US Politics

The Obama Campaign should be running a mile from this… but won’t

This is a bit scary. Not new, but scary that they’re actually prepared to put it in print. The danger, according to Capehart, is that this narrative may remove the race card as a factor (emphasis mine): By telling potential voters “It’s OK to make a change,” the RNC is acknowledging all that I mention above.… Continue reading The Obama Campaign should be running a mile from this… but won’t
