Not to worry Carol. Voter apathy is going to kill Obama. He got out the vote last time, but it won't repeat. Many of the poor and young crowd may still support him, but will not show up to vote. His appeal is nowhere near 2008. My bet is that even the black panthers will not man the poles to intimidate this time around. Homer not withstanding of course.

Well, that explains the video of two "new" black panthers brandishing weapons in front of a polling place in Philadelphia.
Kind of like the video from Benghazi proves everyone in the administration is a liar, starting with Obama.

When President Obama took office, our country faced the worst financial crisis since the Great Depression (thanks to George Bush.) Millions of jobs had been lost. Since then, we have had 31 straight months of private sector job growth ... despite the opposition by the Republican Congress. Obama saved the auto industry and millions of jobs. American manufacturing is adding jobs for the first time since the 1990s. Middle class families have seen their taxes cut and tax rates are the lowest in years. Mitt Romney's "plan" is the same one that got our country in trouble more tax cuts for the wealthy and fewer rules for Wall Street. Who do you think wins from this plan? Yet, Romney wants us to trust him. He says, "I know how to create jobs trust me." Remember, his former Bain Capital employees, tens of thousands now jobless, trusted him.

Let's see....
American Dream Act signed in 2003.
Democrats support the war in Iraq in 2003.
Here's the Democrats negotiating for no effective oversight of their Marxist subprime housing mortgage underwriting program... in 2003.

http://online.wsj.com/article/SB1222905743912...

The Democrats took control of all oversight of the financial institutions that collapsed our economy. After 2 years of Democrat oversight, the economy collapsed.

Let's go over that again:
The Democrats trade support for the war in Iraq for no effective oversight of their Marxist subprime housing loan program, then they get complete oversight of the program, and 2 years after Democrat oversight the Democrats' Marxist subprime loan program collapses the economy.

That's why Massachusetts doesn't like him. You would think all that talk about what he did there, they would vote for him. I think they know the true Romney.

I can do it in one word:

Capitalist.

You know, the ideology that brought the world out of the relative stone age it was in before the United States became the most significant influence in the world.
It was diametrically opposed to Marxism, the ideology that produced the 3 worst mass murderers in the history of civilization:
Stalin (low estimate 10 million murdered) about 5 to 7 percent of the population under his control.
Mao Tse Dong (high estimate 60 million people murdered) about 7 percent of the population under his control, and more people murdered than were killed in World War II cumulatively around the world.
Ho Chi Minh (median estimate 3.5 million people murdered) about 12.5 percent of the population under his control outside of North Vietnam murdered. Statistically the worst mass murderer in the history of civilization.

And, coming in at number FOUR is Hitler (high estimate 10 million people murdered not involved in combat actions).

The imposition of Marxist communism killed more people than all the wars of the previous century around the world combined. The top three mass murderers in the history of civilization used Marxist communism to imprison and enslave their respective populations so they could commit mass murder on such a large scale.

And, you guessed it, Obama is a Marxist communist. He left a trail of Marxist communist associations Inspector Clousseau could follow.

There's basic dishonesty and then there's f-you dishonesty--dishonesty so blatant, so consciously abusive of facts that everyone knows, that it deserves a category of its own. Kato Keilin: dishonesty. O.J.: f-you dishonesty.

Romney's new ad about Jeeps and Italy is f-you dishonest. You probably know the background. Bloomberg News moved a confusingly worded article last week suggesting, if you didn't read it closely, that Jeep (under Chrysler, owned by Fiat) was sending all its production to China. Romney said this on the trail.

I originally cut Romney a break here--some aide handed him a news article that was sloppily or strangely written, he read it on the fly, he decided to throw it in there. Not such a crime.

But then Chrysler ripped Romney and said no way, this is not true. Chrysler is thinking about putting plants in China down the road to try to increase market share there. But as for the here and now and the U.S. market, Chrysler is not only not cutting back domestic Jeep production but expanding it, investing $500 million in the Toledo, Ohio Jeep plant.

At that point, even most political campaigns would have just dropped it. They wouldn't apologize, because campaigns don't do that, but a normal campaign would just drop it and try to move on.

So what did Romney's campaign do? It cut a TV ad doubling down on the claim, cleverly worded so as to suggest that the Obama administration sold out America (and Ohio) by selling Chrysler to the Italians who are moving production to China.

Jon Cohn of TNR has a good write-up here that goes into more detail on domestic auto industry employment, which was cratering before the bailout and has picked up briskly since. The "say anything" credo of the Romney campaign continues and mushrooms. I think this one might backfire though. Are the workers and voters of Toledo amused being knowingly misrepresented and used like this? I'd like to see an Obama ad featuring some of the workers at this very plant.
