      It’s like having Obama’s life flash before your eyes.

        Scariest part is: it will not change one of the true believers’ minds.

          They should be called disciples. It’s kind of like what Charles Manson had. It’s kind of like what the celebrities are doing by pledging their allegiance to Baby Doc Barack. Totally creepy.

      Chris Cillizza is one of the biggest Obama boosters around — it killed him to write that column. And he still had to qualify it by putting in his own conclusion “this is by no means good news.” Of course that is belied by his stating that last week re: Romney’s embassy statement was a “very bad week for Romney.”
      He talks about an echo chamber, without realizing how far deep in one he is.

        Think about this:

        For the public to find out that Romney thinks most Democrats are whiny victims who want government to support them is about as shocking as overhearing Obama privately saying that Republicans are greedy, soulless SOB’s.

        We already know the two sides don’t like each other, no matter how nice they pretend to be in public.

        It’s like finding out a coach gave a locker room speech where he bad-mouths the other team.

        • angienc says:

          There is a tape of Obama telling supporters re: the Republicans “They want dirty air & water.” MSM doesn’t seem to care about it.

    Local news coverage from Ryan’s visit to our area yesterday. From a newspaper owned by the same media pimps who own the NYT. It was a college crowd and it was AWESOME 🙂

    • HELENK says:

      he brings the ticket alive. Romney is a good man, a smart man but he really cannot get people as involved as Ryan. Romney was smart enough to make the right choice. One more reason I would vote for him he does put the right people in the right place at the right time

    Bad, bad Klown. On the other hand, what if the bookie keeps the Klown as collateral? In that scenario, we are all so screwed.

  3. votermom says:

    So what do you guys think is in the missing minutes of the “secret Romney video”?
    I’m guessing he said something about nevertheless needing to maintain a safety net or needing to save medicare.

    • Constance says:

      I agree. He should definitely claim that or have someone who was there come forward and claim that.

    • wmcb says:

      Yep. Or talked about how creating JOBS does more to lift up the poor than a govt check, since Mitt says that all the time. “Oops, it was an accidental 2 minutes where I failed to notice the recorder was off” is BS.

    • angienc says:

      Yes to votermom & WMCB — that is exactly what he said on both counts. Plus, I’d bet he threw in something to the effect of “once I’m in office & they see my policies working, I’ll win them over.”

      If there is anyone who believes that the recorder turned off “accidentally” right during these particular comments — I’ve got a bridge to sell you.

    all kidding aside, this is creepy and scarey. If this does not wake the American people up , I do not know what will. remember when he refused to salute our flag

    If you look at the victories and failures of the civil rights movement and its litigation strategy in the court, I think where it succeeded was to invest formal rights in previously dispossessed peoples so that I would now have the right to vote, I would now be able to sit at a lunch counter and order, and as long as I could pay for it, I’d be OK. But the Supreme Court never ventured into the issues of redistribution of wealth and the more basic issues of political and economic justice in this society, and to that extent, as radical as, I think, people try to characterize the Warren court, it wasn’t that radical; it didn’t break free from the essential constraints that were placed by the Founding Fathers and the Constitution…. One of the, I think, tragedies of the civil rights movement was because the civil rights movement became so court focused, I think, there was a tendency to lose track of the political and community organizing activities on the ground that are able to put together the actual coalitions of power through which you bring about redistributive change, and in some ways, we still suffer from that. You can craft theoretical justification for it legally, and any three of us sitting here could come up with a rationale for bringing about economic change through the courts.

      WASHINGTON (AP) — Nearly 6 million Americans — most of them in the middle class — will face a tax penalty for not carrying medical coverage once President Barack Obama’s health care overhaul law is fully in place, congressional budget analysts said Wednesday.

    Oh my! Guess the RNC is getting sick of all the eeyores too.

    The Pa. Republican Party will release an internal poll on Thursday that shows Mitt Romney within 1 point of Barack Obama.

    The survey was conducted on Sept. 17. by Susquehanna Polling and Research, a firm commonly used by Pa. Republicans.

    According to the average of public polling compiled by Real Clear Politics, Obama leads Romney in Pa. by 8.3 percent, 49 percent to 40.7. Republicans have spent the past week pushing back against signs, including a lack of TV ads, that the state is falling out of play. Last week, Gov. Tom Corbett and Sen. Pat Toomey each insisted that internal polls are more telling than public ones.

    We’ll bring you more details on the poll including methodology when they are available tomorrow.
