Marc Leder owes Mitt Romney. The last time the private equity executive hosted a fundraiser for Romney, the former Massachusetts governor used the opportunity to share with donors some of his thoughts about 47 percent of the country.

On Saturday night, Leder will host another fundraiser for Romney, according to three sources familiar with the event.

The Romney campaign has since become more aggressive about banning video and audio at fundraisers so that Romney can speak freely.

Wolf Blitzer after last night's debate:

"When we dig deeper into the numbers, we're seeing Romney did score points with viewers tonight.

Look at this.

58% of debate watchers say Romney would better handle the economy. 40% say President Obama would. That's issue number one.

49% say Romney would better handle health care, compared to 46% for President Obama.

We also asked who would better handle the issue of taxes. 51% say Romney; 44% say President Obama.

59% say Romney would do a better job on the deficit. 36% say President Obama would do a better job on the deficit.

*WOW*

You are the fool in quoting rhetoric. Thank you for the comic relief.
Here's you some "comic relief" bub :)

A woman in a hot air balloon realized she was lost. She lowered altitude and spotted a man in a boat below. She shouted to him, "Excuse me, can you help me? I promised a friend I would meet him an hour ago, but I don't know where I am."

The man consulted his portable GPS and replied, "You're in a hot air balloon approximately 30 feet above a ground elevation of 2,346 feet above sea level. You are 31 degrees, 14.97 minutes north latitude and 100 degrees, 49.09 minutes west longitude."

She rolled her eyes and said, "You must be a Republican."

"I am," replied the man. "How did you know?"

"Well," answered the balloonist, "everything you told me is technically correct, but I have no idea what to make of your information, and I'm still lost. Frankly, you've not been much help to me."

The man smiled and responded, "You must be a Democrat."

"I am," replied the balloonist. "But how did you know?"

"Well," said the man, "You don't know where you are or where you're going. You've risen to where you are due to a large quantity of hot air. You've made a promise that you have no idea how to keep, and now you expect ME to solve your problem. You're in EXACTLY the same position you were in before we met, but somehow, now, it's MY fault.

Bain Capital's companies that created 100,000 jobs: Staples (89,000), Sports Authority (15,000) and Domino's (7,900 jobs added since 1999). That's 111,900 jobs.
Companies that lost jobs include American Pad & Paper (385), Dade International (1,900), DDi Corp.(2,100), Clear Channel Communications (2,500) and KB Toys (3,400). That's 10,285 jobs.( FactCheck.org rounded up the numbers from POLITICO and the New York Times.)
Looks like the jobs created won. That's business for ya.

Obama Lies About Oil & Gas Production on Public Land
Contrary to President Obama’s assertions, Romney’s telling the truth when he says,‘Production of oil on public land is down 14 percent and production of gas on public land is down 9 percent.’ That’s because energy production on federal lands is down compared to 2010, according to the Energy Information Administration.”(Juliet Eilperin,“The Truth About Oil And Gas Production On Public Land,” The Washington Post’ s Fact Check, 10/16/12)
Romney's a number's guy and rarely wrong on his facts. And he's honest from what I see (past the MSM).

Obama says whatever is good for the moment, as we saw last night, and always drags someone along. I bet Candy Crowley is never asked to be a moderator again.

If he's re-elected, massive inflation will shut down the banks within 24 months and the FDIC cannot back up their insurance. Jobs? They'll be no jobs. Have you heard a plan from Obama other than 'train the youth of today?'

Al Qaeda and the Taliban are stronger than ever and bolder than ever. We're not safe. One of them will get through eventually.

How's Virginia Beach gonna be when Obama cuts the military by six BILLION? What about Chesapeake and Norfolk. Colonna's Shipyard will probably have massive lay offs or close. No more military spending in VA Beach.

Romney want to built 3 new subs. I have four children in Virginia Beach. Your unemployment hasn't been too bad. Watch out for it.

And Obama will close down your coal mines. He has a ware on coal. Keep us tied to the mideast.

Nice move, Barack! Just what your campaign needs to do...alienate more voters!

"An outspoken critic of Israel who once said the Jewish state should be added to the list of 9/11 terror suspects was recently selected by the Obama administration to participate in an international forum on human rights -- sparking outcry from watchdog groups."

Check out this statement from the debate?

"The way we're going to create jobs here is not just changing our tax code, but also to double our exports. And we are on pace to double our exports, one of the commitments I made when I was president. That's creating tens of thousands of jobs all across the country."

Pay special note to this: "one of the commitments I made when I was president."

I think Obama's getting the idea.

No one should have ever know what unit killed Bin laden. Two months after Obama and Biden bragged about it, a helicopter carrying 20 members of Seal 6, 20 other military members and a service dog was shot out of the sky and all aboard were killed.

After Biden chanted in Charolette, the last week of August, "GM is alive and Bin Laden is dead"...they waited till 9/11 and killed four Americans in Libya. The protestors all over the middle east were chanting "Obama! We are Bin Laden!"

Maybe there was a reason GW Bush did not kill Bin Laden, if it was going to cost American lives?

And nothing is being done to free the Pakastani doctor who helped with intelligence.

Yes, Obama keeps sending money to the Muslim Brotherhood president of Eqypt. The Friday after the 9/11/12 protests, Obama ordered a wire transfer of $450 Million, that's a 1/2 Billion, to be sent to Eqypt. Kay Granger, a member of the subcommittee for foreign affairs noted it and informed congressmen still in the building and they 'put it on hold for now.'

Obama's arrogance is astounding.

The rumor is that Obama and his people arranged the Benghazi attack, but it was to be a hostage situation and he would 'rescue' the ambassador and others right before Nov. 1. But the terrorists got carried away and killed them. I didn't believe it. But after 6 weeks of mixed up stories and new details, I'm beginning to wonder.

And why is Hillary in exile?

Maybe Hillary left country so she don't have to be questioned just before the elections...

If Obama is re-elected, it is going to be disaster for America. His healthcare is the largest tax increase in the American history!
