    Maureen Dowd of NYT is panicking. Her sister is thinking bout voting for Romney. Have you noticed that ever since women have started moving towards Romney, most prog women columnists have begged women not to trust Romney, and to try and further demonize Romney and Ryan as women-haters. Bring that up, Lola.

  6. yttik says:

    Listening right now! Great job, Lola.

    LOL, love your commercials. They remind me of old time radio.

  7. yttik says:

    Love your prediction about how Romney is going to win with such a big margin that we will all be able to go to bed early on election night! Yayyy!

    Sheesh, I hate staying up all night biting my nails.

    I think you are correct. There are five life time Dems in my house, all voting for Romney and several down ticket Repubs, too. If you ask two of them, the young ones, they’ll tell you they’re “undecided,” but the truth is they already voted for Romney. They just don’t want to deal with their friend’s Obamacrap.

    Damn, I would have loved to hear the conversation of fellow TCH’ers. If you could translate the audio into 3gp and send it to my cellphone, I’d be ecstatic.

    Perhaps it’s just me, but that photo is such a rip of the one with Hillary in the rain. And, of course, he shows no passion in it.

    • DeniseVB says:

      I thought the same thing. Nothing about Obama is sincere or passionate as Hillary, he’s just a brand name. 😉

    • Erica says:

      That’s what I thought too, and he can’t quite pull it off. When he copycats Hillary, he always comes up short. I’d think by now he’d have gotten better at that.

    Obama Cancels Some Campaigning to Monitor Storms

    The White House has announced President Obama is cancelling some of his campaign travel Monday as Hurricane Sandy is expected to veer on to the East Coast.

    The president is getting out of Washington, D.C., Sunday, earlier than planned, to beat the disruptions expected in air travel. He is scheduled to speak at rallies in Orlando, Florida, and Youngstown, Ohio, two places outside the region braced for the impact. The White House says a Monday evening rally in Northern Virginia near Dulles airport is being cancelled. That area is expecting high winds and heavy rains. The President has also dropped Tuesday morning travel to Colorado Springs.

    He is leaving DC (where the situation room is) EARLY to go to events outside the storm path. He is cancelling one event due to the weather (Northern VA is in the storm path and it will be raining like hell) and he is cancelling a rally in Colorado Springs on Tuesday morning when the storm is expected to make landfall.

    So he is only canceling one event to “monitor storms.”

  11. Lulu says:

    He is running away so he doesn’t have to deal with it in real time. Just like Benghazi. He is a chickenshit.

  12. DeniseVB says:

    Romney sending his campaign bus to help with storm relief efforts. Also reason for cancelling Virginia events today was so local officials can focus on storm prep rather than his security.

    Such a decent man, it’s really refreshing.

    • yttik says:

      I know! He actually puts his money where his mouth is, unlike Obama who is all mouth and no action.

      Obama doesn’t give a crap about the storm, beyond the fact that he wants to be perceived as monitoring it. Whether he actually does anything to help is irrelevant, he just wants to take credit for it.

      • Erica says:

        Uh huh. Is this a replay of him watching Benghazi go down from the situation room? He’s a watcher, not a doer.

        Every day, I am getting happier about voting for Romney on Nov. 6

      • DeniseVB says:

        And if an unexpected catastrophic Katrina-like event occurs, he’ll be at the ready to blame someone else ! Then go to a campaign event. Am I right ? 😉

  13. once again I am so sorry I couldn’t make it due to work. I am sure I missed something special!!
