In his convention speech in Charlotte, President Obama vowed to block the Republican Medicare reform plan because “no American should ever have to spend their golden years at the mercy of insurance companies.”

But back in Washington, his Health and Human Services Department is launching a pilot program that would shift up to 2 million of the poorest and most-vulnerable seniors out of the federal Medicare program and into private health insurance plans overseen by the states.

Obama Opens Medicare Edge Over Romney

HORSE PUCKY!

Typical headline intended to mislead. Of course it's drawing heavy fire from Democrats. That's a non-news statement. But the writer tries to infer that Barack has a Medicare edge from everyone over Romney.

Warn everyone virally - 6 weeks of this to come.

READ THE HEADLINES ONLY TO LAUGH AND KNOW THAT THE MEDIA IS FARTING 24/7 and IT WILL MORE DESPERATE OVER THE NEXT 6 WEEKS.

http://pjmedia.com/zombie/2012/09/14/narrativ ...

The media knows that at this stage in the election, the headline is all that matters. And the headline need only be barely supported by some underlying veracity. If you can find some cooperative Democratic staffer to mouth the word “gaffe,” then you’re off to the races with a deceptive headline

The mainstream media has dropped all pretense of impartiality. Their behavior in response to the latest Mideast crisis was blatant, outrageous and effective. When the world erupted on September 11 and the Obama administration groveled at the feet of our barbarian attackers, the major news outlets knowing that this was a disastrous turn of events for the Obama campaign which could not be spun in his favor decided the only solution was to brazenly change the subject to a fabricated peripheral side issue: that Romney had committed some kind of “gaffe” by criticizing the government’s weak-kneed response.

As Obama’s dithering threatened to ignite a world war, a significant percentage of mainstream news outlets blared headlines like ROMNEY GAFFE DERAILS REPUBLICAN HOPES and ROMNEY WON’T BACK DOWN FROM FALSE CLAIM. Of course neither of these headlines (nor countless similar headlines over the past two days) was factually true: The only thing that transformed Romney’s rather mild criticism into a “gaffe” was that the media itself declared it to be so.

The MSM knows full well it manipulates The Narrative, and invariably does so to the benefit of Obama, the Democrats, and “progressivism” in general. And people like you and I know this full well too.

Waaaaaaaa, media bias, media bias........

Someone call a WAAAAAAAAMBULANCE!!!!!!!!

Obama leads Romney by 5+ points in Florida
Romney has stopped spending money on Medicare ads.

That's how you can tell when a campaign is losing; they stop spending money on certain issues or in certain states ((like PA & MI).

Poor Romney, he never had a chance.

The Muslim Brotherhood is considered the father of the jihadi movement. It was adopted by Adolf Hitler under the Third Reich and grew from a languishing 10,000 members to a million strong by the end of World War II -- Hitler's permanent legacy for world destruction. Yet Barack the Fraud and State Department believe in embracing the Brothers as modernizing moderates.


The Brothers started the modern jihadi movement, complete with a genocidal program against Jews. In the words of Matthias Kuntzel, "[t]he significance of the Brotherhood to Islamism is comparable to that of the Bolshevik Party to communism: It was and remains to this day the ideological reference point and organizational core for all later Islamist groups, including al-Qaeda and Hamas."

Mubarak was the reason there have been no attacks by Arab states on Israel for thirty years.

It was 911 again this year. It was somewhat worse because of the atrocities to the ambassador. The difference is in Barack's Dhimmitude reaction and scapegoating of Americans after the atrocity. He is clearly an Islamic sympathesizer as most of us knew back in 2008. We just didn't know in what specific ways he would damage America from the inside (economy) and outside (expediting the Islamization of middle east).

Maybe a little bleep here and there, but basically never a chance.
Thank God.

1. Assmussen is notoriously inaccurate and leans Republican by an average of 6 points, so that means Romney actually trails by 4 points nationwide.

2. We don't vote nationwide, and Obama leads by more than 5 points in enough states to get 300+ electoral votes.

Game over!

Yep, you can tell how bad Romney is doing by just watching Fox "News". When their entire conservative panel is talking about why Romney is losing (instead of how he's gonna win), you know it's bad!

Only to those that live in caves inverted......

Any intelligent person that's ruled by common sense over ideology, that he, Romney would be the one to pull this country out of it's tail-spin into oblivion. A person who had Executive Experience both in State government and Corporate America that had an incomparable success rate of 80% in establishing viable companies that were directly responsible for employing hundreds of thousands of employees in the private sector.

Whereas...., we have a complete neophyte president that had no qualifications, other than being black - which I might add, is the only thing that got him elected in the first place. He hasn't a modicum of understanding how Businesses and Economies work, who surrounds himself with like minded unqualified folks that work on theory, over experience -- that have never ran anything or met a payroll. Obama hasn't the intellect or training to manage a 7-ll, let alone a Country.....

The following is where we are at present in this screwed up debt ridden nation that will take an expert to turn this out-of-control train around before it hits end of track.

If you watch nothing else today....please watch this short illustration lesson.

This is a non-partisan video produced by an accountant, Hal Mason, retired after 27 years with IBM.

He looks at the budget, its revenues and expenses, and very simply illustrates the problem.

Amazingly, we get all the media talking heads blathering and shouting for hours and never get clarity.

This guy does it in a couple minutes.
