Romney:
The Emptiest Candidate in Presidential Election History

And with the presidential debates complete, there is barely an issue area on which Romney hasn't undergone a change just in the last few weeks. I had thought that no matter what else Romney might change his mind on, if there's one thing he believes it's that the wealth and privilege of the wealthy and privilege must be maintained and enhanced. But he even flip-flopped on that, not only pledging not to cut taxes on the wealthy (in contrast to what he said during the primaries), but actually proposing a huge tax increase on them (though I seem to be the only one who has noticed that that's what Romney has in fact proposed). That neither his supporters nor his opponents believe that he really wants that just makes it all the more remarkable. I feel like we've gotten so used to the idea of Romney as a shape-shifter that what for a different candidate might have been greeted as a series of scandalous acts of cynicism was instead greeted with, "Yep, everybody saw that coming."

Romney also probably understood that if he waited long enough, the press wouldn't punish him much for an ideological refashioning either. At the end of a campaign, horse-race reporting and the focus on the most trivial of campaign quibbles goes from being a bias that colors coverage to swallowing the entirety of coverage. Who has time to write a story about Romney's latest ideological metamorphosis ?

GOP Voter Fraud Accusations Suddenly Blowing Up In Their Faces

GEE I only thought Democrats use voter fraud, I was surprised to even see the Republicans even did this,,,,,,,,, Florida in 2000 election was just a fluke...LMAO!

GOP Voter Fraud Accusations Suddenly Blowing Up In Their Faces :

Republican officials, who have used hysteria about alleged voter fraud as an excuse to support measures that disproportionately block Democratic voters, are furiously trying to distance themselves from a growing number of GOP voter registration drives that either submitted false applications or threw away authentic ones.

The latest drama began to unfold on Oct. 17, when the manager of a Tuesday Morning discount store in Virginia's Shenandoah Valley saw a man throwing a garbage bag into the store's private dumpster. Inside the bag was a file folder containing eight completed Virginia voter registration forms.

A few weeks earlier, the GOP had been under fire following reports of suspicious registration applications that had been submitted in 10 Florida counties by a company run by Nathan Sproul, a Republican operative who has long been trailed by allegations of voter fraud. The Republican Party paid Sproul's company, Strategic Allied Consulting, about $3 million this year for registration drives in five swing states: Colorado, Florida, North Carolina, Nevada, and Virginia.

In Palm Beach County, Fla., alone, about 100 questionable voter registrations were flagged, more than half of which involved changing a voter’s party affiliation to Republican or independent. Discrepancies were also found in North Carolina.

Sen. John Kerry, D-Mass., has joined former Vice President Al Gore in attributing President Barack Obama’s desultory performance during the Oct. 3 debate in Denver, Colo. to the high altitude.

"I personally really do believe that the altitude may have had something to do with it," Kerry said in the Santa Fe New Mexican Wednesday.

Mitt Romney’s smashing victory in the Denver debate is credited with reviving his formerly beleaguered campaign. Kerry has impersonated Romney in Obama’s debate preparations.

Gore was widely ridiculed when he came up with the altitude excuse the day after the debate.

Kerry acknowledged that Obama’s indecision was a factor. "I ... think he wasn't settled in his own mind completely on his strategy. And I think that held him back. I was surprised, obviously."

Things looked a lot better the night before the debate, Kerry said.“I thought we had a terrific night the night before when we went through it all, and everybody was a little surprised, and he was surprised."

Obama won this debate, which was apparent to anyone who was watching. He also won on the facts.

One more thing on the naval issue,

"The United States has 11 supercarrier strike groups: China doesn’t even have an aircraft carrier, let alone a supercarrier strike group. China has purchased unwanted medium-sized aircraft carriers from Moscow and is tinkering with them, though none sail. China is believed to be designing its own 50,000-ton conventional-power aircraft carrier, which would be similar to what the United States called a “fleet carrier” during World War II, and not as powerful as the 100,000-ton nuclear supercarriers the United States builds at enormous expense."

When women heard Obama framing women's issues as economic issues, I knew he'd found a winning message. "Taxes and jobs", as mentioned by Forbes above, include things like the cost of your healthcare plan, and whether or not that healthcare plan that you pay for covers the things that you need, including contraception. These aren't separate issues for many women, including married women with families. Losing the ability to plan your family as you see fit means less opportunity for women in the workforce. And this discussion also includes whether or not your employer is allowed to impose their morality on you through control of your healthcare plan. Should your Christian boss get to force you to live like a Christian if that's not your belief? Romney stands for that, while Obama opposes it. For women, there's a clear choice in this election, and it's Obama.

Romney's "Binder Full Of Women" Comment May Have Cost Him The Female Vote and the Election:

Women should get flexible hours at work to get home and take care of the kids and make dinner .?????

A new Public Policy Polling survey in Virginia,
conducted on behalf of Health Care for America Now, finds Barack Obama
continuing to hold onto a lead in the state at 49% to 47% for Mitt Romney. PPP
has conducted three Virginia polls since the first Presidential debate and has
found Obama with a 1-3 point advantage on each of them.

Key findings from the survey include:

-By a 53/45 margin voters trust Obama more than
Romney to stand up for the middle class. And by a 50/43 spread they trust Obama
more to make sure that the wealthiest American pay their fair share of taxes.

-Obama has a 51/47 lead with seniors, which may be
driven in part by the fact that 51% of them trust Obama more to protect
Medicare, compared to 46% of voters who pick Romney on that question.

-Obama’s leading 54/42 with women, 91/7 with
African Americans, and 54/38 with voters under 30. Romney’s ahead 53/43 with
men and 59/38 with white voters. The candidates are basically tied among
independents with 45% going for Romney and 44% for Obama.

So basically, Obama leads with women, seniors and a majority see him as a better choice for Medicare, taxes and the middle class. It's +4 for Democrats so it's not an outrageous sample.
