Barack Obama, our next President

Hey did you see that 28 newspapers have switch to the Romney camp? Two the them were the New York Daily news, and the Long Island Newsday, and also the New York Post, just to mention a few.

Swing-state papers flip to Romney ahead of Election Day

Published November 05, 2012

FoxNews.com

The race for the White House is airtight hours before Election Day. But in the battle of swing-state newspaper endorsements, Mitt Romney appears to be winning -- aided in large part by papers that switched from backing Obama in 2008 to supporting the 2012 Republican nominee.

According to an analysis by Poynter, Romney has bagged a total of 24 swing-state newspaper endorsements, to Obama's 15. Across the country, at least 30 newspapers also flipped from backing Obama in 2008 to backing Romney this year.

They include some major swing-state papers, including the Wisconsin State Journal. In its editorial Sunday, the newspaper called Obama the "more likable and inspiring speaker." However, the editorial said, "this election is about jobs ... This is now Obama's economy, even though the GOP shares in the blame for partisan games."

The State Journal joined the Des Moines Register, Naples Daily News, Reno Gazette-Journal and the Orlando Sentinel, among others, in flipping to back Romney.

The New York Daily News also made waves this weekend by endorsing Romney, after having backed Obama in 2008.

"Four years ago, the Daily News endorsed Obama, seeing a historic figure whose intelligence, political skills and empathy with common folk positioned him to build on the small practical experience he would bring to the world's toughest job," the endorsement in part states. "We valued Obama's pledge to govern with bold pragmatism and bipartisanship. The hopes of those days went unfulfilled."

According to Poynter, at least three papers flipped from Sen. John McCain in 2008 to Obama this year. They were the San Antonio Express-News, The San Francisco Examiner and the Winston-Salem Journal.

Several other newspapers abstained from endorsing anybody this year after backing Obama four years ago -- including the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, the Palm Beach Post and the Dayton Daily News.

Gallup editor-in-chief Frank Newport tells Bloomberg Businessweek that the release of Monday’s tracking poll, set for 1 p.m., will show Mitt Romney leading President Obama 49 percent to 48 percent among likely voters nationally. This is the first tracking poll released since Hurricane Sandy and is notable for the strong movement to Obama. The last Gallup poll on Oct. 29 showed Romney up by 5 points—51 percent to 46 percent. Romney’s one-point lead is within the margin of error and, statistically speaking, amounts to a tie.“It’s tied today at 1 o’clock,” Newport said by phone Monday morning.

500 Generals, Admirals Support Romney
Continuing a trend among military members who have serious concerns about President Obama’s tenure as commander-in-chief, over 500 former generals and admirals from all branches of the military have publicly came out in support of Romney.
The admirals and generals announced their support for Republican challenger Mitt Romney in a full page ad they purchased which ran in the Washington Times. Among the generals on the list are Gen. Tommy Franks and Marine Commandant Gen. James Conway.
Franks was the commander of the U.S. Central Command who oversaw the 2001 invasion of Afghanistan following the attacks by Muslim terrorists on September 11 as well as the invasion of Iraq in 2003.

"Army general pulled rank, forced sex: prosecutors"

""FORT BRAGG, North Carolina (Reuters)- An Army general used his superior rank to force five women into improper sexual relations, military prosecutors said on Monday at a hearing to determine if he should face a court-martial.

Brigadier General Jeffrey Sinclair, who is based at Fort Bragg, is accused of 26 violations of military law. They include forcible sodomy, wrongful sexual conduct, possessing pornography while deployed and conduct unbecoming of an officer.

The charges stem from inappropriate behavior toward four female subordinates and one civilian over the last five years, Army prosecutors said, revealing new details about the charges announced against Sinclair in September.""

----------

Generals are just like priests, cops, and boy scout leaders.

They use their roles to force sex on unwilling people, including children.

Just like you do, Scummer.

Poll watchers from groups ostensibly targeting voter fraud are headed primarily to minority voting precincts on Election Day, lending support to the argument that their real goal is to suppress the African-American and Latino vote.

A partial list of precincts targeted by a Pittsburgh Tea Party group working on behalf of the Republican Party shows that nearly 80 percent of the voters in those precincts are African-American, compared to 13 percent countywide, according to civil rights and union groups who on Monday called on the U.S. Department of Justice to investigate.

An Ohio political blog is reporting that forms submitted to election officials by Tea Party spin-off group True the Vote in Franklin County -- which includes Columbus -- show poll watchers heading to 28 precincts, where most voters are African-American. Overall, the county electorate is 20 percent African-American.

"We've been concerned from the beginning that the efforts of True the Vote and aligned groups were going to be targeted largely in communities of color," said Eric Marshall, manager of legal mobilization for the Lawyers' Committee for Civil Rights Under Law. "We've seen in the past where these kinds of tactics can lead to intimidation and harassment of voters."

A potentially even greater concern now is that the groups will use the voter challenge process "for the express purpose of creating lines and confusion," Marshall said.

Prohibitively long lines, particularly where Democrats are in the majority, are a net plus for Republicans; extraordinarily long lines for early voting in South Florida resulted from Republican Gov. Rick Scott's rollback of early voting days there.

So do you think that someone who stands in line for 4 hours because of a republican is going vote for a republican?

To kill an unborn baby for the sake of convenience alone and/or as a form of birth control is an evil rationalization of a selfish person.
That's why we have church! The church should not be with politics!!I wonder if these people would endorse anybody for the reason of abortion?

Leadership FOR ALL of America again!
"Chris Christie Denied Mitt Romney Request To Appear At Campaign Event Days Ahead Of 2012 Election"

"New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, who was effusive in his praise of President Barack Obama when the two leaders toured damage from Hurricane Sandy last week, turned down a request by Mitt Romney to appear with him at a rally on Sunday night in Pennsylvania, The Huffington Post has learned.

Christie's decision will only add to questions among Republicans about what the governor -- who is up for reelection a year from now -- is thinking, and why he went out of his way to heap praise on the president, and then refused to appear with Romney."

----------

If you'd get yo mouf off the meth pipe or Dweebs Johnson for awhile, you'd see the big fat rat has abandoned the USS Rmoney, which is taking on water and will sink tomorrow.

Christie is firmly in Obama's camp. He's looking for a cabinet job!!

I'm lovin' it!!

No need to be specific, the average American city block contains more firepower than most people can comprehend. For such a large country, being an ARMED society is what keeps us so free of warfare for such long periods of time!

Tea Party Group Blocks Florida Voters, Stops Water Handouts at Polls

But it didn’t seem to stop the flow of voter traffic. Black voter turnout at predominantly black districts hovered around 45 percent, which Lewis said was “very good” compared to 2008. But it also means that there‘s roughly half of remaining black eligible voters who have one more day to vote, tomorrow, which means lines could be even longer.

The early voting number totals are impressive—166,937 in total throughout Hillsborough County, the anchor of the important Interstate 4 corridor that includes Tampa, Orlando and Daytona Beach. In 2008, the total early voting numbers in Hillsborough County totalled 146,563—and that was with four more days of early voting than this year.
