Florida continues to look good for Mitt Romney. The Republican holds a 6-point lead in the state essential to his hopes of defeating President Barack Obama, according to a new Tampa Bay Times/Bay News 9/Miami Herald poll.
The poll shows slight tightening, with Romney's 51-45 lead down 1 percentage point from the Times' statewide poll a month ago. Other Florida surveys show a tighter contest and both campaigns are blanketing the state with appearances geared toward scraping together every last vote.
Still, nearly every key indicator in the Times' pre-Election Day poll reveals Romney's advantage in a state Obama won four years ago.
Florida voters trust Romney more to fix the economy and give him an edge, 50 percent to 48 percent, on who will look out more for the middle class a stark turn from past months when Obama and his allies unleashed a barrage of TV ads portraying Romney as an out-of-touch corporate raider.
Romney even has a slight advantage on foreign policy, with 2 percent more voters saying they trust him over Obama, who has faced criticism over the fatal attack on a U.S. consulate in Libya.

In that case, have two.
Quit trying to have it both ways. Either Obama is doing exactly what he should be doing, or you've been badly playing devil's advocate for weeks now.

Dick Morris? Didn't he already walk back his prediction that R'Money was WINNING? Didn't Michael Brown criticize Obama for working too quickly on the Sandy devastation? Must be something about show horses..."UAW Charges Romney With Profiteering From Auto Bailout
At a press conference in Toledo, Bob King, President of the United Automobile Workers, will announce that his union and Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) have filed a formal complaint with the US Office of Government Ethics in Washington stating that Gov. Romney improperly hid a profit of $15.3 million to $115.0 million in Ann Romney's so-called "blind" trust.
The union chief says, "The American people have a right to know about Gov. Romneys potential conflicts of interest, such as the profits his family made from the auto rescue. Its time for Gov. Romney to disclose or divest.
While Romney was opposing the rescue of one of the nations most important manufacturing sectors, he was building his fortunes with his Delphi investor group, making his fortunes off the misfortunes of others, King added.
The Romneys' gigantic windfall was hidden inside an offshore corporation inside a limited partnership inside a trust which both concealed the gain and reduces taxes on it."

OBAMA AND PLANTATION POLITICS
Obama To Poor Blacks Stay Poor
By Frances Rice
To his eternal shame, in order to acquire and maintain power, President Barack Obama has adopted
the Democratic Partys strategy of keeping blacks poor, angry and voting for Democrats.
Using the politics of poverty and race-baiting, Obama garnered nearly 96 percent of the black vote
that helped propel him to the pinnacle of power. That power is now being used by Obama to
accomplish his liberal agenda which includes wrecking our economy and weakening our national
defense, leaving us vulnerable to another terrorist attack.
Obama is trying to destroy our free enterprise system and change America into a failed socialist
nation with growth-killing tax increases, the take over of private businesses through bailouts and
trillions of dollars in irresponsible deficit spending on wasteful social programs.
Millions of jobs have been lost since the passage of Obamas Stimulus Bill that includes over 8,000
wasteful pork projects. That pork-laden bill will stimulate only the Democratic Party not the
economy, nor black communities. Incredibly, Obama turned a $450 billion deficit into a $9 trillion
deficit, and he is promising to spend even more, including $1.5 trillion on a disastrous governmentcontrolled
health care scheme. All of this uncontrolled, budget-busting deficit spending will send our
nation careening over an economic Clift into oblivion.
The tens of thousands of Americans participating in Tea Parties across this country peacefully
protesting Obamas socialist actions and policies are being mocked by President Obama and
derided as racist by his fellow Democrats and liberal media allies, all in an effort to silence average
Americans. Complaints are not allowed about the fact that under Obamas America, all Americans
will be dependent on the government for their well-being, just as are poor blacks.
While professing to care about the plight of the poor, Obama continues to take actions that keep
blacks impoverished, so he can use black grievances for partisan political gain. In his book Dreams
From My Father, Obama wrote disdainfully about blacks who complain about being poor, yet
continue to vote for Democrats like Obama who keep them poor. On page 147 of his book,
Obama described what he and his fellow Democrats do to poor blacks as plantation politics when
he wrote:A plantation. Black people in the worst jobs. The worst housing. Police brutality rampant.
But when the so-called black committeemen came around election time, wed all line up and vote the
straight Democratic ticket. Sell our soul for a Christmas turkey.
While in the Illinois Senate, Obama helped keep blacks corralled on the Democratic Partys economic
plantation when he provided funding for slum projects in Chicago, as was exposed in the Boston
Globe article that can be found on the Internet at:

#792747 Nov 3, 2012
That Boston Globe article shows how Obama provided millions of tax dollars to his slum lord buddies,
including now convicted felon Tony Rezko who contributed hundred of thousands of dollars to
Obamas political campaign and helped Obama buy a million-dollar house in a shady real estate deal.
As president, Obama put a poison pill in the Stimulus Bill that kills welfare reform, so that tax dollars
can no longer be used to help the poor become self-sufficient through job training and child care
assistance. Instead welfare will, once again, become a government handout that keeps poor blacks
mired in generational poverty. Welfare has destroyed the black family, and Uncle Sam has replaced
the father in black urban homes.
After Obama worked to end the school choice opportunity scholarship program in the District of
Columbia that helps poor blacks get a better education, he produced a budget that, astonishingly,
eliminates the $85 million designated for the HBCUs (Historically Black Colleges and Universities).
In typical hypocritical liberal fashion, Obama is sending his own two children to a private school, while
kicking poor blacks out of that same private school and effectively sending the poor blacks back to
the failing DC public school system.
Waking up to the danger Obama poses to the poor and our economy, the National Black Chamber of
Commerce (NBCC) issued an alarming report showing that Obamas cap-and-trade mandates
designed by radical environmentalists would make American consumers poorer and the products
they buy more expensive.
The NBCC study found specifically that the cap-and-trade law, known as the Waxman-Markey
legislation, will cost 2.5 million U.S. jobs by the year 2030 and reduce GDP by $350 billion. Further, it
will reduce earnings for the average U.S. worker by $390 per year and reduce the average
households annual purchasing power by $830 per year. That report can be found on the Internet at:

Another study reported by the Heritage Foundation demonstrates that Obamas cap-and-trade, or
cap-and tax, law could be an even bigger economic disaster, raising electricity rates by 90 percent
and the price of gasoline by 74 percent. Only a hard-core liberal would be so wedded to his liberal
agenda that he would deliberately put that agenda above the well-being of the people in this country.

Just as some black Republicans, including the NBRA, are fighting to help save black communities
from continued destruction by the Democratic Partys socialist policies, average Americans are in a
battle to save our country from being turned into a failed socialist nation by Obama and his Democrat
minions. With the liberal media refusing to hold Obama accountable and Democrats in control of
Congress, there is no check on Obamas power, except we, the people. Our only real weapon is our
Three cheers to the sensible people in California who, by an incredible 65-35 margin, said no to five
initiatives for higher taxes for irresponsible spending on feel good social programs that are wrecking
Californias economy.Tighten your belt, Californians shouted at their government, each citizen
wielding just one vote, but, oh, the impact of that vote. Remember also that no Republican in the
House of Representatives voted for that economy-wrecking Stimulus Bill.
Edmund Burke wrote:Nobody makes a greater mistake than he who did nothing because he could
do only a little.
Those who wish to stop Obama and the liberal Democrats from destroying our traditional values and
plunging our nation into economic oblivion should stand up and be counted. Participate in Tea
Parties. Stop funding the liberal media by cancelling your subscriptions and turning off liberal radio
and TV programs. Protect your family dont buy those tin can hybrid cars produced by the unionrun
auto companies that were taken over by Obama with our tax dollars and awarded to the unions.
So, in 2010 and 2012 in order to save America do not vote for any Democrat. Just say no to
Obamas socialism. Believe me, our government will hear us, loudly and clearly, when we run the tax
and spend Democrats out of Congress.

""President Barack Obama maintained a significant, 6-point lead over Republican Mitt Romney in the crucial swing state of Ohio, according to a new set of NBC/Wall Street Journal/Marist polls released early this morning. The result is unchanged from mid-October.
The polls also showed Obama ahead of Romney by 2 points in Florida, which is a virtual must-win for the Republican nominee.

A sellout obama has spent trillions of of wasted tax dollars to rescue his cronie moneyed Wall Street interests and has left the people of Staten Island and other storm victims to their own devices, cold, hungry dumpster diving and dying...
For every good reason you lie and makeup lame excuses nuculur, Florida has a better reason to tell the truth... you retard... What is obama hiding?
$5 million dollars donated to a soup kitchen on Staten Island would feed the storm victims for a month...
$5 Million dollars to a charity of obama's choice, a soup kitchen or a storm crisis center to help victims from the storm, if obama releases his sealed records.. How simple is that loser?
Why is obama a sellout?

Republicans blame Bush as much as Democrats do. Otherwise Bush would have been side by side with Romney. After all Romney's Plans are EXACTLY the same as Bush. Instead of ever being their with Mitt, Bush is in the Cayman Islands checking on Mitt's money.
The last place I would expect elder statesman George W. Bush 43 to show his face would be the Cayman Islands, home to some of the worlds most notorious and nefarious financial intrigue. After the 9/11 attacks, U.S. investigators focused on secret Cayman Islands accounts thought to be used by al-Qaeda operatives to funnel money to the hijackers. Right around that time, Enron was collapsing as various shell companies its top executives established in the Cayman Islands proved not to be the promising new business ventures that Enron investors were led to believe they were.
At the time, the founder and head of Enron was Kenneth Lay, a good friend of President Bush. They were so tight, Bush liked to call him Kenny.
When you want to hide what youre doing, the Cayman Islands is the place to go. Just ask Mitt Romney, who according to MSNBC invested up to $25 million in 12 Cayman Islands-registered funds. His old company, Bain Capital, has more than 138 investments in the Caymans and 40 secret offshore accounts.
