Mitt Romney's Proven Bipartisanship excites American Voters that are sick and tired of watching Obama prance around saying "I WON" which means America Loses and Nothing Gets done.


Americans are Clearly Excited by Romney and it reflects in the huge Boost in Polling for Romney. Obama is in a very awkward position of claiming he's a blank sheet of paper again when his actual 4 yr record is like watching the Titanic Sink.


It's Time for Bipartisanship to Move America in the Right Direction. It's time for Mitt Romney.

CU professors double-down on prediction of Romney win due to economic factors

By TIM HOOVER
The Denver Post

Barack Obama, Kenneth Bickers, Michael Barry, Mitt Romney, University of Colorado
Remember the University of Colorado professors who predicted Mitt Romney would win the election because of economic factors – despite national pollsters predicting President Barack Obama well ahead?

Well, political science professors Kenneth Bickers of CU-Boulder and Michael Berry of CU Denver have updated their model and say the new data still shows a Romney win.

According to the updated analysis, Romney would get 330 Electoral College votes to Obama’s 208 votes, even less than the 218 the pair predicted during the summer and still well short of the 270 needed to win. Again, it’s a huge disconnect from national punditry which still shows an easy Obama victory (though experts say new polling will have to gauge the effect of Romney’s success during Wednesday’s debate).

Did Obama Just Throw The Entire Election Away?

The Pew poll is devastating, just devastating. Before the debate, Obama had a 51 - 43 lead; now, Romney has a 49 - 45 lead. That's a simply unprecedented reversal for a candidate in October. Before Obama had leads on every policy issue and personal characteristic; now Romney leads in almost all of them. Obama's performance gave Romney a 12 point swing! I repeat: a 12 point swing.

Romney's favorables are above Obama's now. Yes, you read that right. Romney's favorables are higher than Obama's right now. That gender gap that was Obama's firewall? Over in one night:

“Baby Obama”

I met Mitt Romney at a campaign event for McCain back in 2008. His speech, delivered with no notes, and no teleprompter, was brilliant, concise, clear, to the point, and compelling. He was engaging, and stuck around for quite a while after the event shaking hands and chatting with folks.

I knew that if Romney could gain a national audience, unfiltered by the leftist news media in this country, he would be able to connect. And that is just what he did...along with winning the debate by the largest margin ever recorded.

Obama, on the other hand, is exactly the opposite. He reads a good speech, but cannot speak coherently otherwise.

I fully expect Paul Ryan to wipe the floor with that old plagiarist, Joe Biden.

Hey, you think Niel Kinnock is Biden's debate coach?

And you can bet that Obama will be scared to death of facing Romney in their next couple of debates, after having his posterior handed to him in the last one.

The GOP base is energized because they have seen that Romney can lie with a straight face. Well, OK, he did smirk quite a bit, but at least he got the lies out.

Obama GOT HIS TEETH KICKED IN By Mitt Romney in the Debate.

Upwards of 60 Million Voters saw that Mitt Romney Cares about America and Americans while Obama Hussein was nothing but an empty suit that was helpless without a Teleprompter to feed him words!


Mitt Romney is competent, experienced, bipartisan leadership.

Obamaa hussein is incompetent, inexperienced, bitter partisan, and only leads when donors give him money and tell him a direction.


It's time for a real Leader, Not another Obama DOWNGRADE.

Romney Takes Lead in Swing State Polling

In the 11 swing states, Mitt Romney earns 49% support to Obama’s 47%. One percent (1%) likes another candidate, and three percent (3%) are undecided.

This is the first time Romney has led the daily Swing State Survey since September 19. Until today, the president had led for 17 of the previous 19 days, and the candidates had been tied twice. This survey is based on findings from the previous seven days, with most of the responses now coming since Romney’s debate win last Wednesday night.

Forty-six percent (46%) of these Swing State voters are now “certain” they will vote for Romney and will not change their minds. Forty percent (40%) are certain they will vote for the president.

Did Obama Just Throw The Entire Election Away?


8 Oct 2012


The Pew poll is devastating, just devastating. Before the debate, Obama had a 51 - 43 lead; now, Romney has a 49 - 45 lead. That's a simply unprecedented reversal for a candidate in October. Before Obama had leads on every policy issue and personal characteristic; now Romney leads in almost all of them. Obama's performance gave Romney a 12 point swing! I repeat: a 12 point swing.

Romney's favorables are above Obama's now. Yes, you read that right. Romney's favorables are higher than Obama's right now. That gender gap that was Obama's firewall? Over in one night:

Currently, women are evenly divided (47% Obama, 47% Romney). Last month, Obama led Romney by 18 points (56% to 38%) among women likely voters.

Seriously: has that kind of swing ever happened this late in a campaign? Has any candidate lost 18 points among women voters in one night ever? And we are told that when Obama left the stage that night, he was feeling good. That's terrifying. On every single issue, Obama has instantly plummeted into near-oblivion. He still has some personal advantages over Romney - even though they are all much diminished. Obama still has an edge on Medicare, scores much higher on relating to ordinary people, is ahead on foreign policy, and on being moderate, consistent and honest (only 14 percent of swing voters believe Romney is honest). But on the core issues of the economy and the deficit, Romney is now kicking the president's ass.

Look: I'm trying to rally some morale, but I've never seen a candidate this late in the game, so far ahead, just throw in the towel in the way Obama did last week - throw away almost every single advantage he had with voters.


How do you erase that imprinted first image from public consciousness: a president incapable of making a single argument or even a halfway decent closing statement?

Everyone imaginable did what they could for him. And his response? Well, let's look back a bit:

With President Obama holed up in a Nevada resort for debate practice, things can get pretty boring on the White House beat right now. Pretty boring for Obama too, apparently. "Basically they're keeping me indoors all the time," Obama told a supporter on the phone during a visit to a Las Vegas area field office. "It's a drag," he added. "They're making me do my homework."

Too arrogant to take a core campaign responsibility seriously. Too arrogant to give his supporters what they deserve. If he now came out and said he supports Simpson-Bowles in its entirety, it would look desperate!

Or maybe, just maybe, Obama can regain our trust and confidence somehow in the next debate. Maybe he can begin to give us a positive vision of what he wants to do (amazing that it's October and some of us are still trying to help him, but he cannot). Maybe if Romney can turn this whole campaign around in 90 minutes, Obama can now do the same. But I doubt it. A sitting president does not recover from being obliterated on substance, style and likability in the first debate and get much of a chance to come back. He has, at a critical moment, deeply depressed his base and his supporters and independents are flocking to Romney in droves.

I've never seen a candidate self-destruct for no external reason this late in a campaign before.

Obama loses &#8232;lead on key &#8232;voter issues: economy, national security


By Stephen Dinan
Monday, October 8, 2012

Voters now give Mitt Romney the nod when it comes to handling national security, and he has recaptured a lead over President Obama when voters are asked who will do a better job on the economy — findings that spell bad news for the incumbent.

Little more than a week ago, heading into the first debate of the campaign season, Mr. Obama led on the economy and national security, as well as handling of energy, immigration and foreign affairs. In each of those categories he either topped or was just below the magic number of 50 percent support.

But that changed in the latest The Washington Times/Zogby Poll conducted by Zogby Analytics, released Monday, which gave Mr. Romney a 48 percent to 45 percent advantage on national security and a 50 percent to 44 percent advantage on jobs and the economy.

John Zogby, the pollster for the survey, said those two are “unarguably the two most significant issues” facing voters in this election, which helped propel Mr. Romney back into a tie with Mr. Obama in a head-to-head matchup.

Mr. Romney also made up ground on all three of the other issues surveyed, though Mr. Obama maintained a 50 percent to 44 percent lead on foreign affairs and a 48 percent to 41 percent lead on immigration policy.

The two men were virtually tied, however, on energy policy, 46 percent to 46 percent — a huge change from before the debate, when the president led 51 percent to 40 percent.

In the debate, Mr. Romney accused Mr. Obama of wasting taxpayer money on green energy projects such as Solyndra, the solar panel manufacturer that filed for bankruptcy after taking more than a half-billion dollars in government loan guarantees.

“I had a friend who said, you don’t just pick the winners and losers; you pick the losers,” Mr. Romney said.“This is not the kind of policy you want to have if you want to get America energy-secure.”

Mr. Romney said Mr. Obama earmarked $90 billion in one year for green-energy subsidies.
