Christie, although kind of a blowhard, has always been somewhat of an independent. His speech at the convention did Mitt no favors.
For the GOP sake I hope this is the beginning of a future rebellion.
Do you think Bloomberg carries any prestige or weight outside of our area?
I think so.

As much as most endorsements which most of the pundits don't think are worth much.

But I think he's a credible guy who's achieved much. Also Colin Powell should get some attention. His reasoning was equally thought provoking IMHO.

I'm cautiously optimistic.....read: nervous/scared as hell....ahhhhh 2004....please no!

And this..

"In the midst of the storm hitting the East Coast, President Obama decided to campaign today, taking Air Force One to Florida last night. Once there, however, Obama changed his mind. Instead of campaigning, he delivered pizzas to an Obama campaign office - prompting one reporter, Bloomberg's Hans Nichols, to tweet: "Obama's 12 hour trip to Orlando.... Most expensive pizza delivery in history?"

Air Force One delivers pizzas to supporters, but screw those he's supposed to be commander-in-chief for. No support for those in Benghazi.

Well, it some ways it is moot anyhow- NYTimes 538 still projects a healthy Obama lead. 538 is the only source I trust as it looks at the whole picture under every bias contingency.

If you believe in momentum - it is clear who has that right now, too.

We are too dazed with an overload of electioneering and storm response to nervous/scared. Even if Obama looses, it is clear that there is some type of long anticipated rebellion against the whackies in any case.

David Brooks - the last republican intellectual alive - today came out with an argument and tacit endorsement of Obama - though I dont think he intended it that way.

Thats all politicking. You werent going to vote for him anyhow.

What really matters is storm response, and Chris Christie is unarguably the best objective arbitrator on that one.

Plus Brownie didnt do Romney any favors either. We in the storm zone are still chuckling over that one.

Article in todays paper how the CIA was in action from the beginning. Thats probably the third article in three weeks on that theme.

A Romney Travels to Russia, but on Strictly Friendly Terms

WASHINGTON — Matt Romney, a son of the Republican presidential nominee, traveled to Moscow this week seeking Russian investors for his California-based real estate firm just days before his father is to wrap up a campaign in which he has vowed to take a tougher stance with the Kremlin....

....His father has made Russia a centerpiece of his indictment of Mr. Obama, whose “reset” policy stabilized relations with Moscow after a rocky stretch only to see ties sour again with the return of Mr. Putin to the presidency.

yess...this is the inside word, coming from both campaigns (pre Mark Halperin). Though I'm trying not to think about it or talk about it too much. I still know anything can happen. Election history is replete will elections where the results didn't jibe with the polling, just days before.

The NYT 538 - is that by chance Nate Silver?(Not familiar with that moniker.) A very bright sounding guy who has been on several talk shows recently. He said his folks got the restults correct in 49 of the states last election.

He also wrote a great article ccomparing NYC neighborhoods.(He lives in Brooklyn Heights)

Nate is all about data. It's what he does.
I too tend to trust his information. Cautiously that is.

I was thinking, "Who the hell cares about Benghazi right now?"

And then I read this, and now I understand why you are obsessed with this issue.

It isn't really your fault.

Simple solution: Stop watching Fox News!

Carry on.

Fox News Focuses On Benghazi Attack While Largely Ignoring Hurricane Sandy

Posted: 11/01/2012 6:40 pm EDT Updated: 11/02/2012 7:36 am EDT

Fox News prime-time hosts barely mentioned Hurricane Sandy on Wednesday night, even as MSNBC and CNN reported non-stop on the massive cleanup efforts just south of Fox's Manhattan studio and throughout the surrounding region devastated by the storm.

Instead, the Fox News hosts focused on the upcoming presidential election and the Sept. 11, 2012, consulate attack in Benghazi, Libya -- a story that’s been a mainstay on the cable network over the past six weeks amid suggestions of a White House cover-up. While Fox News correspondents have done solid reporting and raised legitimate questions for the Obama administration to answer, some of the network’s on-air hosts have been fanning the flames of conspiracy in what's been dubbed "Benghazi-gate."

A concerted effort to make Obama look bad before the election and plant the seeds of doubt in the remaining undecideds. Pretty pathetic.

Shiny metal object to distract the simple-minded.
