So, where are? Really? Huh?
Mitt Romney is ahead in Pennsylvania for the first time in the presidential campaign, according to a Republican pollster.
Susquehanna Polling and Research, which has consistently showed better news for Republicans than other statewide polls, has Romney leading Barack Obama 49 percent to 45 percent in a survey released Thursday of 1,376 likely Pennsylvania voters.
In the race for a U.S. Senate seat in Pennsylvania, the poll has Republican Tom Smith besting Democrat Bob Casey, the incumbent, 48 percent to 46 percent.
mmm ... mmm ... mmm
LOL
the election wll be determined by this:

'...if Romney's message keeps on resonating from now until Election Day, we can expect the combination of national theme and momentum to continue.

If so, he’ll end up winning most or all of the states where the race is tight now, and win not only by a comfortable popular-vote margin but by more than 300 electoral votes (he needs 270).

Obama’s failure to generate national momentum may not matter to him and his team, because his stragegy isn’t national. He is pursuing a state-by-state strategy, aiming to win those 270 votes in the Electoral College.

And you only become president by winning the Electoral College, which is apportioned by state.

Obama’s strategy now is simple: Win Ohio. Period. No Republican has ever been elected without it. If you count electoral votes and swing states, Romney’s so-called “path to 270” becomes immensely more difficult without Ohio.

As a result,Obama abhors a national theme. Thus, when he talks about the virtues of the auto bailout, he’s actually running on something that is unpopular nationally — but he’s betting that it resonates in Ohio, which has a lot of secondary auto business.

His overall campaign goal is to sow doubts about Romney’s fitness. It’s a little bit of this, a little bit of that, throw anything and everything against the wall to see what sticks.

This method of negative campaigning classically seeks to depress a rival’s potential turnout — not by winning new voters of your own, but by convincing those who might have gone with the other guy to stay home.

Thus the Obama campaign’s unprecedented torrent of negative ads in Ohio and other swing states, to the tune of something like $500 million.

Romney and the SuperPACs backing him have spent as much, if not more, in a version of trench warfare that has netted ad makers and TV stations a billion dollars or more — an almost unimaginable effort simply to neutralize the other guy.

All that money may have been injurious to the Romney campaign in a sense: For a long while, it led Romney to believe he, too, should pursue a state-by-state Electoral College strategy.

Indeed, when Romney’s campaign appeared to be floundering, it may have been because he too sought to pivot his entire candidacy around Ohio. His sober, calm convention was explicitly designed not to turn off that state’s swing voters, especially its women voters.

But as it became apparent Romney couldn’t out-Ohio the president, he found his voice as a national candidate. He stopped firing wildly in every direction at the president and found a point of focus: He’s the man with the plan; the president tried and failed.

It’s simple and coherent:

THE PRESIDENT HAS NO MESSAGE. None. For him, the election comes down to mechanics — indeed, down to this: Grinding out a victory by denying Romney a win in Ohio is his only hope.'

Foreign policy issues occupied a small portion of tonight’s debate, but they had an enormous impact on the outcome. The main sustained exchange between the two candidates on these issues was a clear defeat for Romney. This isn’t just my judgment, but was the widely shared view of observers from across the spectrum. Incredibly, Romney was so wedded to the idea that the administration didn’t acknowledge a terrorist attack on the consulate that he managed to get some basic facts wrong on Obama’s initial statement on September 12. One would think that his campaign would have made the effort to double-check the support for one of his biggest attacks of the night.

YA THINK? Economic distress, not abortion, is what drives pro-Romney women.

Many women supporting presidential candidate Mitt Romney are not driven by contraception politics but by struggling household economies, despite Democratic expectations that they will build the gender gap by assailing the Republican as a pro-lifer driven to end abortion.

In interviews with female Romney supporters, most don’t think he will delve into abortion issues other than to limit federal funding if given a chance as president. Some pro-choice women even told Secrets that they are confident he won’t challenge that status quo because he hasn’t made it a centerpiece of his campaign.

The Volt is an OK product. I know people that have them & think they are great.

If we invested in R & D, you'd be running through the streets screaming how we spent money & didn't even produce a single car yet. And you know it.

I know hundreds of companies that have benefited in the green jobs initiatives that would likely be out of business today without it.

Candy Crowley commits career suicide. List of credibility shredded Kenyan fluker sluts grow: Rice, Hillary, doofus Debbie W-A, Cutter, Pelosi, Oprah

CNN admits that Crowley’s disregard of the rules was intended to help Obama.

JAMES TARANTO: WAS CANDY IN CAHOOTS?“If this surmise is correct, then Crowley knew about the ‘acts of terror’ Easter egg hidden in Obama’s Sept. 12 speech, and Obama knew she knew. Romney did not know and was as incredulous as Crowley had been, because the administration had spent weeks peddling the claim that the video dunnit. Obama brought the matter up expecting incredulity from Romney and backup from Crowley. She therefore unwittingly played her role in Obama’s little ambush of his opponent. She was just clarifying the facts–or so Axelrod & Co. had led her to believe.”

That's funny Jane; a Greek friend lamented upon the rights continually equating Greece with our economic problems here!
But, we all know you are almost all just parrots, squawking what some rightwing radio or tv pundit has said to you over and over like a mantra. You do not even have an elementary knowledge or comprehension of what happened in Greece, because if you did, you would not make a fool of yourself everyday.

Here's one little hint: the wealthy in Greece have not paid taxes in years. It is rife with corruption and bribery by the greedy wealthy people who have raped their own country rather than support it. Greece does not make anything, or have any natural resources. So now, use your own brain, if you even have one.

I swear that if you all realized how ridiculous and ignorant you all sound; you'd file a class action suit against Fox News for turning you into the League of Morans.
