Obama: Promises, Promises …

“Obama is a historic disaster of the first magnitude and, if not restrained, he will see to the irrevocable decline of the country which foolishly elected him, leaving the world on the brink of a conflict — or in the midst of one — whose repercussions cannot be underestimated.” – David Solway __________ “Number of States won by: Obama: 19 Romney: 29 Square miles of land won by: Obama: 580,000 Romney: 2,427,000 Population of counties won by: Obama: 127 million Romney: 143 million Murder rate per 100,000 residents in counties won by: Obama: 13.2 Romney: 2.1 In aggregate, the map […]

More Signs That Obama is Jimmy Carter 2.0

Those of us old enough might remember the following speech from Jimmy Carter… Well, it appears that Obama is becoming the Jimmy Carter 2.0, and Newsmax can explain why. Americans’ optimism about their country is at its lowest since when Jimmy Carter was president in 1979, a new Gallup poll has found. The survey of 1,011 adults conducted Jan. 7-10 found that only 39 percent — or fewer than four in 10 Americans — rated the country positively on a 1-to-10 scale, Gallup reports. While the number is about the same as in 2010, it is at its lowest since […]

They Said if I Voted for Romney, They’d Come After my 401(k), and They Were Right!

That’s right kids, they government is eyeing your 401(k), IRA, or 403(b) with great envy.  And, as for the title, since Stacey is talking blog shtick, I thought I’d borrow from his well, which is deep with all sorts of goodness.   But, back to the seriousness.  There has been rumblings about the government taking over all private retirement accounts for some time.  Apparently, the democrats just can’t let a big pool of money sit there in private hands-it must be controlled, and redistributed, bythe kind hands of government.  Bob Belvedere at  TCOTS has more… The Editors at Investor’s Business Daily published an excellent […]

Election 2012: What Went Wrong?

So President Barack Obama won Election 2012. What went wrong? Some people will go small and point towards factors such as the Chris Christie and Colin Powell’s backstabbing, a chance hurricane, a weak third debate from Romney, Romney’s unforced Jeep mistake, or the power of the ground game. But I think the what went wrong is something much bigger than this. In my post Has America Passed the Point of No Return (ie, 50.1%+ Dependency on Government)? I quotes an article by John Hinderaker over at Powerline blog calledWhy Is This Election Close?: …On paper, given Obama’s record, this election should be a […]

Voting Machines in Kansas and Ohio Change Romney Votes to Obama Votes

Early voting seems to have a purpose after all-to discover that voting machines are changing Romney votes into Obama votes.  As if by magic, of course.  the Lonely Conservative has more… Has anyone heard of any instances of voting machines erring on the side of Mitt Romney? I haven’t. Everything I’ve heard is about voting machines changing votes for Romney into votes for Obama. It’s still going on. According to the Marion Star, early voter Joan Stevens tried to cast her ballot for Mitt Romney, but the machine kept defaulting to Barack Obama. “Upon selecting ‘Mitt Romney’ on the electronic touch screen, […]

More Reasons for the Obama Campaign to Panic? Collapse and Impending Doom on Election Day?

Yesterday, we discussed that the Obama Campaign’s allocation of funds and resources indicated that they are panicking, using scarce resources in places that a democrat incumbent should never have to defend this late in the game.  Today, however, even more indications of collapse and impending doom came to light. Reason for Panic 1:  Dwindling Crowds at Obama Events… In a related presidential campaign rally in Commerce City, Colorado, former President Bill Clinton was the designated cheerleader to speak to the gathered faithful. However, the rally, held at a Commerce City High School, wasn’t “optimal,” to use a phrase from President Obama. The school extended the […]

Voting Machines in North Carolina Register Romney Votes for Obama

What happens when you go to vote for Romney, but your vote get’s registered for Obama?  Well, it has happened in North Carolina, and Lonely Conservative has the background… In Guilford County, NC some voters have complained that when they chose Mitt Romney for president on electronic voting machines the votes came up for President Obama. One woman tried three times and it kept happening. Election officials say it was just a glitch that’s been corrected, but if you vote on this sort of machine I’d be sure to double check that your vote is counted properly. The presidential election is […]

Passive Romney Misses Chance to Seize Victory in Third Debate? My Notes and Observations

Approaching this third and final Presidential Debate in 2012, I am led to believe that the challenger Mitt Romney needs to score a victory in this debate and appear to voters as more competent and Presidential and a better Commander-in-Chief than President Obama. The media is in the bag on this one and will score a tie or even an Obama loss as an ‘Obama win’, and President Obama has the advantage of being able to tout over and over that ‘he killed bin Laden’, so Romney faces some formidable challenges. The President has access to information and can use […]

Apparently, the Obama Campaign is Accepting Foreign Donations

In a story that DIDN’T break, the Obama Campaign was caught accepting foreign donations.  The NY Post has more… The Obama re-election campaign has accepted at least one foreign donation in violation of the law — and does nothing to check on the provenance of millions of dollars in other contributions, a watchdog group alleges. Chris Walker, a British citizen who lives outside London, told The Post he was able to make two $5 donations to President Obama’s campaign this month through its Web site while a similar attempt to give Mitt Romney cash was rejected. It is illegal to […]

And Then There Was One …Debate That Is. What Will Obama’s Strategy Be?

The Romney campaign team are rightfully feeling good about their chances of winning now that the first two presidential debate and the VP debate are behind them.  The polls are very favorable. So, going into next Monday’s debate on foreign affairs, Romney would appear to be in the driver’s seat. All indications are that only a very serious misstep could stop Romney from a  victory on November 6, only three weeks away. Being a foreign affairs debate, and considering the fiasco of the events leading up to the terrorist attack on our consulate in Benghazi, Libya (inadequate security) and the […]

Democrat Propaganda Translated

You have to love Democrat propaganda, they really try hard to make us all think that they really aren’t race baiting, dependency creating, and class warfare oriented leftists. Also, as most readers know, I go over my Facebook page daily, and when my friends post an interesting pic, I use it for the Sunday Link post.  But sometimes, I find a piece of Democratic/Communist propaganda that is so asinine, that I cannot resist translating it into reality.  So, here is the image, and the translation follows… So, here we go… We’re not against capitalism, we’re against it’s abuses… Except when […]

My Conversation with Big Bird (an Obama supporter)

Yesterday I had a conversation with a leftist at a Paul Ryan event and I’d like to repeat how it went for the enjoyment of my readers. Paul Ryan was in Michigan yesterday giving a speech at Oakland University in Rochester and I personally made the trip down from my house in Flint to see him speak. It was a good speech and a nice event (the 2008 event with Palin in Michigan was better and I would have liked to see Kid Rock sing something rather than just speak) but what I really want to write about today is a conversation […]

The consequences of electing leaders with little or no virtue

Samuel Adams once said, “If ever time should come, when vain and aspiring men shall possess the highest seats in Government, our country will stand in need of its experienced patriots to prevent its ruin.”  Now more than ever these powerful words ring true.  In the aftermath of the first Presidential debate we see the works of these vain and aspiring politicians.  We now see how far they will go to hang on to power.  After the President’s terrible debate performance Obama shifted his strategy to lying about Mitt Romney’s position on the issues.  He had to because Romney not […]

Did the mainstream media’s bias contribute towards President Obama’s terrible debate performance?

Oh fudge… We all know the mainstream media is in the tank for President Obama; but did their bias and unwillingness to ask the tough questions throughout his Presidency contribute towards the President’s terrible debate performance? Looking at the debate from a slightly different angle I believe it did.  In an effort to shield President Obama from the impact his terrible economic policies has had on America the mainstream media has not only done themselves and the American people a great disservice, but they may have unknowingly sabotaged the President’s debate performance last night. By not holding the President’s feet […]

Romney Demolishes Obama in Debate 1: Reality Wins over Myth

This debate has the potential to be the game-changer that Romney needs. Trailing by over 3% in the polls based on the RealClearPolitics average and needing something more than a tie or marginal win that would likely only narrow the polls, Romney delivered a game-changing performance and changed the narrative of this election in the first debate. President Obama has attempted to make this election into some sort of class warfare or blame Bush election- but Governor Romney was successful in this debate into making this election into a decision on whether or not to continue Obama’s policies or change […]

SEIU Pays People to Protest Romney

I wonder if $11 an hour is a “living wage,” because that is what the SEIU was allegedly paying people to protest Mitt Romney.  The Blaze has the video… So then, how enthusiastic are the Democrats when they have to pay people to show up?   Then again, it appears to be standard procedure to pay people to be “rent-a-mob.”

November 7, 2012 _ Romney Wins By A Landslide!

In the interest of sanity, I felt compelled to find something up-lifting to write about today. In spite of the left stream Media’s consistent predictions of an Obama win in November, the reports of Romney’s political death are premature. I think it is not out of the realm of possibilities  that Mitt Romney will win by a landslide. A landslide to me would have Romney at 55%, Obama at 41%, and Gary Johnson at 4%. believe it or not, I have some support for being so optimistic. A dear commenter here at CoF left a link to this Business Insider article that […]

Palestinians Riot After Romney Says They Aren’t Interested in Peace

  The day after Mitt Romney’s controversial and racist statement that the Palestinians aren’t interested in peace, thousands of outraged Palestians proved him wrong by rioting for peace. The trouble started when the racist candidate of the racist Republican party told a crowd, and I can’t believe that an intelligent person would even say such a thing, that the Palestinians are “committed to the destruction and elimination of Israel.” Once Klansman Romney’s despicable comments became know to the peaceful corner of the world known as the Gaza Strip, thousands of aggrieved, violent, Molotov-cocktail wielding, yet peace-loving Palestinians took out their […]

MSM, Leftists Predicting Doom for Romney: Don’t Fall for it

The MSM, and the left (or do I repeat myself?) are using the super secret campaign event video to tar Romney-for telling the truth, mind you-and are predicting doom and gloom for the campaign.  To summarize, I have the following statement… DON’T FALL FOR IT! To see through the nonsense, you have to consider a few facts… 1.  The MSM has been cooking the poll numbers for…well…forever.  If you need confirmation of that, consult Da Tech Guy, who has been on top of it.  In fact, if you want to know one poll more than any other, read this one.  […]

Left Attacks Romney Dependency Criticism: Tries to Deflect From Obama’s Failure

The attack on candidate Romney for pointing out that the left relies on dependency to gain votes continues.  However, as Jim Treacher at the Daily Caller points out, this is little more than a distraction from Obama’s many failures… The economy is collapsing. Our embassies are being overrun. Our diplomats are being murdered, and our own government is blaming it on the First Amendment. And Obama doesn’t know what to do about any of it, except for his usual plan of lying his ass off. So he and his enablers in the media hope you’ll be distracted by Romney’s “gaffe” […]
