Why would someone be asked to read a draft when the actual speech exists?
That doesn't pass the sniff test.
It's like referring to the first draft of the Bill of Rights or the Declaration of Independence which looked like this without the changes.

Historic first drafts are nothing more than historic documents. Not to be misconstrued with the final versions.

Only a radical, leftwing, self-absorbed, liberal president wouldn't know the difference.

And Homer.

Quinnipiac Poll: Colorado Senator Mark Udall Is in Trouble

U.S. Sen. Mark Udall gets a split 44 - 44 percent approval rating, but voters say 47 - 41 percent the Democratic incumbent does not deserve to be reelected.

In August of this year, a Quinnipiac poll found that Colorado senator Mark Udall's approval rating was +13 (47 percent approved of his job performance and 34 percent disapproved).

USA frequently posts dumb comments and never knows when to step away from them.
Of course, how would you know this as you tried to support someone saying the Tea Party protests Military Funerals yesterday so anything is believable to you.
Step away from Daily Kos and try reading a few news articles on Yahoo a day.
lol! Son, you post idiotic comments and and counter sources with your opinions.
But don't worry. For you, it's normal!

You're an idiot, the Rasmussen poll showed a one point lead, as well as Gallop, for Romney which is in the margin of error. Many polls showed ties with just a few having Obama at +3. All were in the margin of error.
Learn something about polls, skippy! That was dumb!
lol! Well duh! son!

The Rasmussen poll showing the lead on election night IS the point!

Which explains the dumb looks from fart news and Romney's reluctance to admit defeat.

And this is the 'respected' poll Donovan was referring to!

So grow up son.

Went to the UF vs USC football game! 87,000 redneck hillbillies in one place; it was quite an experience!
The young man in front of me was yelling "yeah, yeah, yeah, this is a red state, you got to be a real man in a red state"
He had a tattoo of the SC flag on his calf.
Well, they won the game. Too bad.
UF sucks this year. They're 4-6 with two games left, both they need to win to become bowl eligible. Last game is Florida State, undefeated and ranked #2. UF hasn't missed making a post season bowl since 1990 and that was when they were on NCAA probation, before that 1986. They were 6-5 that year, but back then television didn't run college football, so there weren't 2 zillion post season bowl games.

But consider yourself lucky, our state team, UConn, is 0-9.

The poverty rate has increased: from 13.1% in 2008 to 15.1% today

http://www.census.gov/hhes/www/poverty/data/

In a Georgetown study it was noted that Obama comes in dead last among modern presidents for mentioning poverty in his speeches.

Barack Obama only mentions the nation's least well-off only 26 percent of the time compared to the other presidents who most did it at least 60% of the time with the lowest being 50%.

If this president chose to read Lincoln's first draft of the Gettysburg Address instead of the final version which added "under God", he should not have said "God bless America" to the end of every campaign speech and at the end of every State of the Union Address.
I'm so sick and tired of the hypocrisy and double standards in the name of liberalism, I could puke.
They invoke God's name only when it's politically advantageous and invoke political correctness the rest of the time.

Good morning ditz.
Speaking of a divided party, who are the 39 Democrats that just voted with Republicans? These 39 must agree it was unnecessary for the Democrats to shut down the government.

Still clueless as usual? Using your idiotic logic most polls are not valid.

You need to educate yourself about margin of error and stop deliberately acting clueless.
