As an antidote to the (perhaps) irrational Republican exuberance that seems to have seized D.C., we pause for the following public-service announcement.

 

To be President, you have to win states, not debates. And Mitt Romney has a problem. Despite a great debate and what The Wall Street Journal’s Neil King Jr. on Sunday called a polling “surge,” Romney has not put away a single one of the must-have states. President Obama remains the favorite because he only needs to win a couple of the toss-ups. Mitt needs to win most of them.

 

Most polling shows Romney trailing in Ohio, Wisconsin, Nevada, New Hampshire and Iowa – by MORE than Obama trails in North Carolina. Glenn Thrush and Jonathan Martin reminded of us of the 2008 primary analogy:

 

Whatever else Hillary Clinton had, Barack Obama had the math. And math, not momentum, gets you the big house, the bulletproof car, the cool plane. We now resume our regularly scheduled Playbook.

 

JONATHAN CHAIT, writing on the New York mag blog “Daily Intel,” tells Dems to quit freaking out – “Romney Says He’s Winning – It’s a Bluff “:

 

“Romney is carefully attempting to project an atmosphere of momentum, in the hopes of winning positive media coverage and, thus, creating a self-fulfilling prophecy. … Karl Rove employed exactly this strategy in 2000. As we now know, the race was excruciatingly close, and Al Gore won the national vote by half a percentage point. But at the time, Bush projected a jaunty air of confidence.

We wish you well Lindsay, but hanging your hopes on Mitt Romney?

No wonder why the security below wouldn’t let you in! When Mitt fails on November 6th, he will ask you to invest In CHINA as he has!

 

 

Mitt hides his money in Bermuda and the Caymans!

 

Mitt is the Commander and Chief of “outsourcing” jobs to China, so he can’t help us with employment!

 

Mitt Advisors are from the Bush Gang that couldn’t shoot straight; Dick Cheney, John Bolton, Condoleezza Rice, Karl Rove and others!

 

Mitt wants to give five trillion dollars tax cut to the wealthy; well at least, Bush only gave one trillion!

 

Mitt wants to invade; Iran, Syria, North Korea and remove the elected President of Egypt, but then again, Bush only invaded Iraq!

 

Mitt was for women’s right and now he is against it!

 

Mitt Was for gay rights and now he is against it!

 

Mitt said he wanted the US Supreme Court to overturn Roe v Wade, but he is temporarily not for that because he needs women votes to win!

 

Well Lindsay, I think you are a wonderful child, you are younger than my daughter, so I just want you to pay attention to the facts and most of all I would like you to get your life back on track because you have a great future ahead of you!

 

 

The Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act was the first Bill President Obama signed into law in 2009.

This is another realistic example of how President Obama “stands” up for women’s rights period. And yes, this is another example of Mitt Romney’s hypocrisy on women’s rights!

 

This Act levels the playing field for women to be paid the same as their male counter-part for doing the same job as men do, but when Mitt Romney was asked about his thoughts on this Legislation, his answer was: “I will get back with you!”

 

On January 22, 1973, Roe V Wade, The Supreme Court in a Landmark decision with a 7 – 2 majority vote in favor of Roe; a woman’s right to choose [410 U.S. 113] became the law of the land. This law that has been protecting the rights of women to choose going on 40 years, Mitt Romney during the Primaries said that if he becomes President, he would support Legislation to overturn Roe V Wade. Mr. Romney was so extreme in his advocacy; he went on to say “all abortions would be illegal, even in the case of incest, rape or the risk of the Mother’s life.”

 

And now like everything else, Mitt Romney is signing a different tune because he needs the women’s vote. Why women would lend their support to Mitt Romney, would forever remain inconceivable to me.

 

Everything Mitt Romney stood for prior, when he sought the Republican Nomination in 2007, he flip flopped and was against it. And now in 2012, he has changed his mind again, trying to walk back his extremism.

 

Mitt Romney’s Candidacy For President Is A PONZI SCHEME Against The American People!

That would amount to Trillions of Dollars in Tax Cuts for Romney and his Rich Friends. If after Mitt Romney’s Twenty Years in the spotlight, you don’t know who and what Romney is; then you are truly uninformed or full of so much hate, that you would deny President Obama a second term and allow Mitt Romney to become President that is against not only your best interest, but that of your children and your children’s children and the generations to come.

 

Everything Mitt Romney stood for when he wanted Former Senator Ted Kennedy Senate Seat [1994] and when Romney ran for Governor of Massachusetts [2003], he became totally against it when he decided to run for President in 2007.

 

During the Republican Primaries in 2011 and 2012, Mitt Romney became an even greater extremist then Newt Gingrich and Rick Santorum, just to get the Nomination. And, now that he got the Republican Nomination he totally disavows just about everything he stood for over the past two years.

 

A vote for Mitt Romney for President is a vote against America and 98 percent of the American people. Perhaps, just perhaps, you should contemplate what you are about to do on November 6th 2012.

 

No other President was handed the mountain of problems as President Obama did when George W. Bush two terms ended.

 

Our financial structure was in danger!

 

Our credibility around the world was in danger from Bush’s go it alone Policy.

 

Job losses from September and each month thereafter were on the average 800,000.

 

Obama was handed two precarious wars; “not paid for.”

 

Two major tax cuts totally one trillion dollars, “not paid for.”

 

An annual deficit of almost a trillion dollars;

 

A National Debt of ten trillion four hundred billion dollars;

 

An Auto Industry that was almost dead;

 

An OSAMA BIN LADEN that was alive and raising hell!

 

Now, you take the above information and compare to where we are today and if you are still going to vote for Mitt Romney, then, I haven’t anything left to say to you.

 

Libya’s tragedy 9/11/12 and United States tragedy 9/11/01 in context!

LIBYA: Is Obama viewed by some as a careless human being or is there something more sinister?

 

Former President George W. Bush, Dick Cheney and others sat on vital information for months prior to the devastating terrorist act on September 11, 2001, including the NIE [National Intelligence Estimate] on August 6th 2001 that explicitly read;

 

“Al Qaeda determined to strike within the United States using Air Crafts as Lethal Weapons.” That statement was at the top of the President’s daily briefing.

 

Please note that this is no hyperbole. This NIE document became public in 2004 after the media including The Associated Press sued under the Freedom of Information Act and the Court ruled it was in the interest of the American People to have this information. (Mr. Bush had refused to release the information voluntarily when National Security Advisor to George W. Bush and other Officials he and his administration were asked about it.) One day after that horrible tragedy Condoleezza Rice in a News Briefing was asked if she as the including President Bush, had any information about terrorist using Aircrafts as Weapons. Ms. Rice flatly denied that they had any such information.

 

Now, that was a terrible tragedy and America and the world came together as a society against these terrorists. In this Libya situation we can all agree that this is a Tragedy that our Ambassador and three other amazing Americans died on the September 11, 2012. However, why in this latest tragedy you hear the voices of the extreme right making all of these unpatriotic statements solely for political benefits? Is it because to some President Obama is a lesser human being than former President George W. Bush, or is there something more sinister?

 

I give credit to former President George W. Bush as one of the Republicans who didn’t try to blame President Obama in this Libyan matter. I am sure as a former President; he knows that despite the title, “we are all fallible human beings.”

 

On the other hand, Mr. Bermuda; Mr. Cayman Island; Mr. Flip Flopper; Mr. Outright Liar; well, he is going to milk this for all he thinks he can get out it; Mitt Romney, a man without any shame; conscience, a man whose religion is Mormonism but whose God is MONEY!

What America needs! Hide your money in Bermuda, Caymans, and Switzerland; hide your Tax Returns from the America people:

Mitt Romney is just what America needs! Hide your money in Bermuda, Caymans and Switzerland; invest in China’s Oil Industry; hide you Tax Returns from the American people; change your positions as often as it takes in order to win; speak disparagingly about your fellow Americans as “free-loaders; deny what you have said if it is working against you [lie]; and don’t forget, form 137 entities in Bermuda to avoid paying Taxes in America and yes, blame the other guy for everything that ails America!

 

Polls prove that the first presidential debate upended the race.

Immediately after the debate, coverage focused on polls that moved in Romney’s direction. After all, a Gallup survey showed that 72 percent of debate watcherssaid Romney did a better job, the most lopsided debate readout Gallup has ever recorded.

But there is little evidence that the debate decisively moved the needle in key swing states. In six state surveys released Thursday by two well-regarded polling partnerships — NBC-Wall Street Journal-Marist and CBS-New York Times-Quinnipiac — there were virtually no shifts for either candidate compared with pre-debate polls.

Nationally, the debate effect may have quickly faded. In Washington Post-ABC News polling after last week’s face-off, voters had more positive reactions to Romney on the first two nights after the debate than on the next two. In Gallup tracking, the post-debate tally is nearly identical to what it was in the preceding days. And one new Florida poll shows momentum for Romney but another doesn’t.

The presidential race has long been characterized as tightly competitive and voters as overwhelmingly locked-in. The first debate seems to have done little to alter these basic, well-documented story lines.

The best polls are those that correctly predict an election’s outcome.

Getting elections “right” is a necessary but insufficient reason to put great stock in polls. Some surveys could be well-modeled — adjusted to previous elections or to hunches, including, some surmise, tweaks to agree with other polls. (Few pollsters relish being an outlier.)

Both the Republican-leaning Rasmussen Reports and the Democratic-leaning Public Policy Polling have track records that some view favorably, but both use automated phone calls with recorded voices to collect data (“Press 1 for Obama, 2 for Romney,” etc.), revealing a basic flaw: It’s against federal law to have computers dial cellphones, so most “robopolls” ignore about 30 percent of U.S. adults.

At a minimum, excluding cellphones means these polls are increasingly reliant on statistical weighting. They might make up for a lack of young people, for instance, by counting several times the answers from the few younger respondents. Peter Miller, a recent president of the American Association for Public Opinion Research, points out the root problem with weighting: “The more you rely on weights, the more you risk being wrong for reasons you don’t understand.”

It is always better to look at polls’ methodology, not just their results. What’s more, the “horse race” findings are often among the least important parts of a good poll. What issues motivate voters? And who is motivated to vote? These are more crucial to understanding an election than whether a candidate is up two, three or six percentage points.

Polls are skewed if they don’t interview equal numbers of Democrats and Republicans.

Political junkies quickly scan each poll release to see the “party ID split” — the proportions of self-identified Democrats, Republicans and independents in the sample. It makes sense: With party loyalty as strong as it is, the numbers of Democratic and Republican respondents in a survey make a huge difference. But to think, as many do, that there should be equal numbers from each party is off-base, particularly when looking at polls meant to assess the general population’s views.

Though voters seem split down the middle, there have generally been more Democrats than Republicans in the country since pollsters started tracking partisan allegiances after World War II. There is often more parity in election tallies, as Republicans tend to be more reliable voters than Democrats, but that also depends on the year.

Artificially evening out a poll’s partisan balance or arbitrarily setting it to match someone’s guess at turnout on Election Day may make one side a bit happier — but at the expense of distorting the current state of play.

News outlets are biased in presenting polls favorable toward President Obama.

Media-bashing is at a peak among conservatives, and some on the right routinely dismiss any poll showing Obama ahead of Romney. (And some on the left reflexively scorn polls in which Romney leads.) Before recent surveys turned in Romney’s direction, one conservative blogger went so far as to set up UnskewedPolls.com, a site offering “adjusted” public polls, tilted to favor Romney by manipulating the samples to be more Republican.

In truth, news organizations have only one bias — toward news.

Nothing demonstrates this better than the recent coverage of the Pew Research Center’s post debate-national poll, which showed big, across-the-board movements from Obama toward Romney. The Washington Post splashed the poll on its front page, and the survey provided days of fodder for cable news, illustrating that the media gravitate toward a competitive race, big shifts and conflict much more than one political party or the other.

Mitt Romney, Paul Ryan, Karl Rove, The Koch Brothers; do you think that they are on your side?

FACT NOT HYPERBOLE

 

 

If our memory is so short to forget the suffering former President George W. Bush and his party left us in, literally hanging over the Financial Cliff and can’t see that there isn’t one penny worth of difference between Mitt Romney and George W. Bush, then vote for Romney and watch him actually throw America off the cliff.

 

Fact, not hyperbole; Mitt Romney formed 137 (Shell) Companies in the Caymans for the sole purpose of avoiding taxes in order to enrich his own pocket. If Mr. Romney wanted to just chase money then there wouldn’t be a problem at all, but he wants to be President of the United States, a man who has bank accounts in Bermuda, Switzerland, made a major investment in China’s Oil Industry and who wouldn’t release more than two years of tax returns; a man who have been telling the American people I would give everyone a 20% tax reduction across the board that totals five trillion dollars; add two trillion dollars to the defense budget and keep Bush’s tax cut of one trillion dollars and that he would still balance the budget, how stupid are the people to believe such phantasmagoric rationales and internecine policies?

 

 

The uninformed Voters

 

 

Just imagine how shallow we have become in America! Obama had a lack-luster debate; Romney on the other hand lied and disavowed everything he stood for and the majority of Americans gave Romney the victory in the debate!

 

I wonder if America sees how unequivocally stupid we are viewed, especially when we continually try to tell the rest of the world about Democracy, Honesty, and in addition, criticize other world Leaders for duplicity!

 

What an exceptional example we are providing to our children – Lying is a virtue; believing in nothing and chasing money will help build their character. When you grow up hide your money in Bermuda, The Caymans and Switzerland, Invest in China, Vote to give more to the wealthy and your country would be better from the trickled down economics. O yes! We are doing a fine job. We ought to be sincerely ASHAMED!

 

The reason why the Polls are so extreme is not because of the Pollsters, but solely because the American people, not all but many, have no in-depth knowledge of how just how corrupt Politicians are, especially the Republicans.

 

Do you want this man, Mitt Romney to be your President?

Founder of Bain Capital, Mitt Romney though Headquartered in Boston, Massachusetts, USA, Bain/Romney and its credit affiliates, Sankaty Advisors, have set up at least One Hundred and Thirty Seven [137] entities in the Caymans, using local Attorneys and others who provide an Island address for paperwork purposes.

 

Interviews and reviews of thousands of pages of financial documents with Tax Experts found that Mr. Romney may have reduced his personal tax bills, due to the Off-Shore arrangements they implemented. Bain tax-avoidance strategies have enhanced Mr. Romney’s income. In addition, some Off-Shore Entities enabled Bain-Owned Companies to sidestep certain taxes thus increasing returns for Mr. Romney.

 

A low estimate of Mitt Romney’s wealth is $250,000,000.00 remain hidden, because Mr. Romney has released only the last two years of his tax returns. Though Mr. Romney left Bain Capital, for the fifteen years he ran Bain, Romney has continued to share in the Profits of Bain due to the terms of his retirement agreement.

 

There isn’t anything wrong with being Rich if your only interest is Business Profiteering, however, there is plenty wrong when you want to be President of the United States and refuse to disclose to the American People, sufficient information in order for them to make an informed decision as it pertains to voting for you.

 

No previous President of the United States have been so secretive about financial matters and in addition; having accounts in Bermuda; 137 Companies in the Caymans for the sole purpose of avoiding taxes; Swiss Bank Account and investing in China’s Oil Industry, rather than in The United States of America!

 

Financial Policies implemented by a Rich man who sees Corporations as People and his single highest objective is, to increase his wealth and that of his Rich friends, advocating trickled down economics, that have been detrimental to the Middle-Class; Our Children; Veterans; The Elderly and the Poor.

 

Do you really think Mitt Romney’s aspiration to be President is some patriotic conviction to assist America’s 98%, or, is it for self-indulgence to extrapolate from you what little you may have left, from George W. Bush’s Policies that decimated you and your family?

 

Hence, I repeat my question: “Do you want this man, Mitt Romney, to be your President?

Bush took us into the deepest Recession; Obama kept us from falling into a Depression!

Beyond the shifting job numbers, what matters is how, with right fiscal-monetary policy mix, and astute management, Obama has held on firmly against all the odds in preventing the US economy from falling into a Depression.

 

As for the clearing of the mess that he had inherited from the preceding Republican administration, let alone Obama, no other President in his place could have done much to fix the economy than perhaps he did, despite constant hurdles presented by the Republican opposition.

 

Again, as far as the employment situation is concerned, it’s not the government driven effort only that matters, rather equally important is private sector push, that was deliberately withheld, leaving Obama alone to do whatever he could to at least not allow further deterioration of our Economy and Employment!

 

There is rough justice in the way things are playing out. Having spent the last year wrongly blaming the president for high unemployment, Republicans can only stand by helplessly as the unemployment rate goes down at the worst possible moment for them. Fox News scoured the data Friday, looking for signs that the economy wasn’t improving. They found some: high unemployment for African-Americans, for instance, and fewer manufacturing jobs.

Money is to Mitt Romney what Carcasses are to Vultures!

Malleable Mitt Romney’s statement on Meet the Press that he opposed the raising of the debt ceiling in 2011 without a cut, cap, and balance provision, is one of Romney’s more egregious false declarations and it is simply not true.

 

In July of 2011 when most of the Republican Leaders were weighing in on the debt ceiling, Romney was in his “Mitt’s Keep Silent Protection Program.” However, when it became abundantly clear that John Boehner would have to cave due to the recalcitrant Republican Congress Boehner was managing, on August 01, 2011, Mitt Romney issued a statement praising John Boehner for working out a deal that avoided The United States of America from defaulting on its debts.

 

Romney’s deplorable and willful paroxysm is just another reason why the American Voters in November 2012, had better revisit all of Romney’s positions that changed over time – as a means to an end. His so-called plan that he calls a budget for which he states; he would increase military spending by 2-trillion dollars; authorize another 5-trillion tax cut [that would benefit Romney and those at the very top 2%] and that he would avoid any immediate changes to Medicare and Social Security while balancing the budget at the same time without any specificity, proves that Mitt Romney is a Human-Vulture on the Middle-Class, the Elderly, the Poor and America’s Children.

 

Mitt Romney’s lame excuses of “not” releasing any more tax returns other than his 2010 returns, is self evident as to this Human-Vulture capriciousness that insults the  intelligence of the American people. If the American people cannot see that any concerns for 98% of the hard-working Americans by Mitt Romney is a big fat ZERO, and capitulate to the utter nonsense by this Vulture and propel him into office, when trouble comes, they would have no one to blame but themselves.

 

At a CNN debate in June, Mitt Romney insisted that President Obama had made the economy worse. Romney said; “What this President has done has slowed the economy. He didn’t create the recession, but he made it worse and longer.”

 

Then later in the month of June at a campaign stop in Allentown, Pennsylvania, Vulture Romney contradicted himself when he said; “I didn’t say that things were worse. What I said was, the economy hasn’t turned around”
