New Projection: Romney 52, Obama 47
5:00 AM, Oct 29, 2012 • By FRED BARNES

The bipartisan Battleground Poll, in its “vote election model,” is projecting that Mitt Romney will defeat President Obama 52 percent to 47 percent. The poll also found that Romney has an even greater advantage among middle class voters, 52 percent to 45 percent.
Obama and Romney

While Obama can close the gap with a strong voter turnout effort,“reports from the field would indicate that not to be the case, and Mitt Romney may well be heading to a decisive victory,” says pollster Ed Goeas.

Should Romney win by 5 percentage points, it would increase Republican chances of gaining control of the Senate. His coattails would help elect GOP Senate candidates in Virginia, Wisconsin, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Florida.“Republicans are now certain to hold the House,” Goeas said,“regardless of how the presidential race turns out.”

There was no draft or war when Obama was of age.

There were both when Romney was. His choice - run & hide.

I wish you right whiners would quit using Libya as a political tool. There is no cover up. The decision not to go in was made by the military.. So really, how pathetic can you get.

One of our best military minds, Colin Powell, endorsed Obama.
Well said. Thank you.

Why is FEMA in big financial trouble?

Because we're broke.

Why are we broke?

Because the federal government tried and failed to micromanage the entire nation.

Oh Fer frisks asked
Trump announced on Wednesday that he would donate $5m to a charity of Obama's choosing, if the president handed over his "college records and applications, and passport application and records".

What's the problem? A golden opportunity to HELP a worthwhile cause, for doing next to nothing (like the Nobel-now stupido- Pwize)..other than supplying documents that should've already been supplied for America's review.

(The Donald should request that it be given to the AMERICAN RED CROSS though)

The Mitt Romney campaign, still attempting to turn the politics of the auto bailout in its favor, is out with a new television ad that dramatically bends both historical record and current news to fit its narrative.

The ad, which was not announced by the campaign, makes no direct claim that can be called a lie. But that's primarily because it's so clever with its wording.

For starters, the ad's narrator says that President Barack Obama "took GM and Chrysler into bankruptcy." That's true. But that was also the plan that Romney prescribed at the end of 2008 and the beginning of 2009. The difference is that Obama supported a bridge loan from the government to help the auto companies go through bankruptcy, while Romney wanted the private sector to pick up the tab. But as basically every principal involved in rescuing the auto industry said at the time, there was no money available from the private sector during the height of the recession. When Dan Akerson, CEO and chairman of General Motors since September 2010, was asked what would have happened had Romney's plan been followed, he responded that GM "would have been in bankruptcy for years and I think you could have written off this company, this industry and this country."

The Romney ad also cites his endorsement from the Detroit News without noting that that same endorsement accused him of "wrong-headedness on the auto bailout."

Tell The Donald to drop his moronic suggestion and donate the money directly to the Red Cross then. PRESIDENT Obama's school records have nothing to do with the Presidency. He's hiding nothing. Romney hasn't made it an issue; why are you?

The Obama State Department withdrew a 16 member special forces team from Benghazi one month before the deadly attacks on 9-11. Lt. Col. Andy Wood was the leader of the 16 member special forces team whose job it was to protect US personnel in Libya. His team’s mission ended in August a month before the deadly Al-Qaeda attack on 9-11. A six member mobile security team was also withdrawn around the same time. This was despite the fact that there were over a dozen attacks in the country this year.
“You don’t just passively allow Americans to remain under attack for eight hours at a time when you have forces within range and do nothing. The Secretary of Defense was in the White House at five o’clock within an hour of when the attacks started. He could have told him,“Yes. We have special operations peope and F18 aircraft that could be deployed right away. To have known what he had available, to have known that Americans were under fire, and to have done nothing, is dereliction of duty that I have never seen in a Commander in Chief from a president of any party. Outrageous.”
Combatant Commanders In-Extremis Force (CIF), which was in Italy. These are the “firefighters” of the U.S. military, who are always on call. Their gear and weaponry are always packed, and they’re used for precisely what happened in Benghazi. They could’ve been in Benghazi very quickly.
Incompetence or otherwise...ignore, deny, obfuscate, and lie.
Libya-Foreign Policy abject FAILURE.
Leadership FOR America again!
Like I always say, you Repubs are the biggest hypocritical bastards on the face of the earth.
The GOP votes to cut funding for Embassy Security and when reality hits them right between the eyes, they want to hold hearings that are nothing but political theater to hide the real truth which is the fact that they are the PROBLEM. Did Paul Ryan vote to cut funding for embassy security???????? THE ANSWER IS YES RYAN WAS A SLASHER TO EMBASSY SECURITY FUNDS.

There is absolutely nothing un-American about wanting each individual state to have the power to manage their own affairs - which they can do far more efficiently than the federal government - with federal government assistance when needed.

Overbloated federal agencies who are also broke can't help anyone efficiently.

Why can't you get this?

Big Pharma Wants to Run Medical Experiments on Your Babies
A commentary just published in the Journal of Pediatrics, Henry Akinibi, MD, and his colleagues from Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center and the University of Cincinnati are calling for Big Pharma to work with academics to conduct more human drug tests on a special group – newborn babies.
If anyone thinks that is not going to happen under O'bama care they have another think a coming. With government run health care your entire body is turned over. This is not about health and it is not about care, it is about medicating the masses. We are the sickest, most medicated country in world-thanks to what is deemed health care. Damn.
