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!
By all rights, this should have a major impact on Obama’s re-election. But that assumes the media are interested, and let’s face it, they are activly not interested in holding Obama to any sort of reasonable standard. The racially charged and at times angry speech undermines Obama’s carefully-crafted image as a leader eager to build bridges… Continue reading Obama Caught Out – this is huge (or should be)
I was going to post on how the US media are up to their old tricks again, blaming Romney’s habit of making statements for their inability to hold the president to account. It’s not that Romney said anything stupid – actually the president agreed with him – but the press are able to make the public believe he’s… Continue reading Crazy like a fox?
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
Daily Kos (via LGF, I don’t read this crap normally) opines on Palin’s church. A look at the home website of Palin’s church tends to be revealing. Among other things, a particular Assemblies buzzword associated frequently with Hillsong A/G and New Zealand Assemblies churches shows up (“Destiny”, here, is a buzzword for “Joel’s Army”, and… Continue reading Churches are important – if you’re Republician
This is absolutely insane. How on earth did this guy get the nomination of a major party? How come the MSM is ignoring this? Power Line does the maths. Just for fun, I did the math. Properly inflating your tires can improve gas mileage by 3%. Of course, many people already keep their tires properly… Continue reading Obama – just inflate your tires and all will be fine
Obama could quite easily loose, and loose a lot if he continues to pull this sort of stupid stunt. People know that McCain is a decent guy, and Obama smearing him is only going to bring Obama down. Correct me if I’m wrong, but does it not seem as if Obama just said McCain and… Continue reading How Obama could loose
…at Obama’s German rally – it seems it’s not quite what is being reported locally. Barely five minutes before the speech was supposed to start, ZDF Berlin studio chief Peter Frey added, “We do estimate that 20,000 [literally, “a couple of ten thousand”] people have turned out.” Frey’s tone, like that of Gelhard, reflected the… Continue reading About that 200,000 figure…
I had a conversation with some non-political types a few weeks ago, and they wondered why there was no coverage of Republican candidates. I told them I though it’d get better after the Dems decided their candidate. How. For years Chris Matthews has been proclaiming defeat in Iraq, on an almost nightly basis, on “Hardball”… Continue reading Obama is King
LGF has it (or lack thereof). Jim Geraghty: “Does it bother anyone that a guy with political ambitions for his entire adult life has not left a paper trail?”
