    Even before the Convention, we see a major shift in the ABC News poll http://www.langerresearch.com/.....ntions.pdf

    Obama is at 47% Approval, but more significantly he’s at 50% disapproval. I have to believe it’s going to get worse for Obama with the high gas prices and growing disgust the American public has towards his brand of divisive politics. Romney is constantly pointing out and criticizing the Gestapo tactics of the Obama surrogates. We’ve only seen the beginning of ugly politics.

    I think Republicans ought to point out this atrocity as evidence Barry Soetoro has failed in Afghanistan. http://news.yahoo.com/17-afgha.....55181.html

    Soetoro has failed in foreign policy everywhere you look. America is weaker in the eyes of the world..mission accomplished by Social Justice dimwit Barry Soetoro.

    Here is yet another example of Romney/Ryan momentum headed into the COnvention,,Ohio.
    This poll just released shows a dead-heat and uses 1738 Likely Voters.

    In the same poll, the Dummocrat Senator Brown is ahead by 1 point.
    Lots of undecideds..10% in the Presidential Race.
    As Roger Rabbit pointed out in another thread, Ohio is pivotable. Roger Rabbit hooks his fluffy tail to an NBC Poll. Good luck with that.
    Seeing this momentum even before the actual convention is real bad news for Barry Soetoro and his idiot sidekick Gaffer Biden.

    This race is very exciting. I think it will come down to Money. Obama has shot his load early. Outspending Romney/Ryan by 2-1 or $170 Million more spent thru July. Romney has way more cash on hand and is way outraising Barry Soetoro.

    So Soetoro/Gaffer are inside the margin of error in almost every swing state, Romney has more cash and is out fundraising Soetoro..and historically, undecideds break against the Incumbent.
    Wake up fools.
    But keep quoting PMSNBC and the leftist Blogs.
    Keep up the ineffective attack campaign.
    Romney/Ryan will lay out a clear plan for America. That’s what undecideds want. Not more divisive vitrol and bullshit from Soetoro.

    I also do not see Romney/Ryan conceding Pa. or several other leans Obama States. They may not win, but the idea is to bankrupt the Obama/Democrat campaign forcing them to spend money they don’t have. Forcing Obama to take all the Democrat money for his campaign leaving nothing for the House and Senate Races.
    You fools understand that is what will happen, right??
    You seem so tied up in knots about attacking Romney/Ryan, that you don’t see the money is evaporating with no effect. In fact, Romney/Ryan are gaining ground, especially in battleground states. They will drown out the boring Democrat Convention with ads and still have a whopping cash lead heading into the home stretch.
    Soetoro could care less about any race but his own. The ultimate narcissist.

    Sigh, @ Da Burfer

    Romney/Ryan will lay out a clear plan for America.

    They have yet to say anything about any “plan” they might claim to have. In fact, Your esteemed Mr. Rmoney has stated in no uncertain terms, that revealing anything about his policies as President would guarantee his defeat in the election.

    Their “plan” is to hand over more and more of the Nations wealth to the few individuals at the top of the income spectrum, while forcing the common worker to make up for it. All while cutting back or eliminating basic government services such as law enforcement, health care and education.

    Their only “plan” is to turn the entire country into Mississippi or Louisiana.

    The fact that you believe that cash flow and personal monetary wealth is the only true measure of a mans value to society speaks volumes. The fact that you seem to take no issue with the wealthiest campaign being the only real qualified one is very disturbing.

    We need to go back to the days when the top income tax bracket was at 70%, or 90% when we were the most prosperous country in the world. We had the schools and the roads and the scientific/ technological advances to prove it.

    We the People have the right to limit the personal fortunes of people that would use their wealth to subvert our Republic for their own gain, be it financial or political. Nobody has the right to amass so much that they can subvert the laws of the Constitution or subjugate the citizens. We do not have kings or princes here. We do not have royalty. We do not honor thieves. Everyone without exception is subject to the rule of law. This especially means the super-wealthy who insulate themselves from the law by hiding behind a bureaucracy such as a Corporation.

    Why should we vote for a pathological liar and tax cheat, and an individual who is short-selling Treasury bonds and is in a position to create a huge fortune for himself if the currency collapses?

    @1 Oh, yeah….this year’s model of “The Road to 9/11″. Something for the birthers, one-world conspiracy theorists and Darbyite end-times fetishists to get together and have a good wank over.

    Jethro spews:

    And the reason the Soetoro crowd keeps saying there is no plan is that the shit Soetoro has pulled with SoetoroCare and porkulous resulted in $6 TRillion of additional debt and continued high unemployment. All Soetoro can bleat is “it coulda been worse” and “Romney has no plan”, even though he clearly does.

    “…This race is very exciting. I think it will come down to Money…..”

    If so, then the Democrats win. Not the way Jethromeant it, but simply because Romney fairly represents the wealthy elite, and what’s it’s done to the middle class over the past thirty years of Regonomics, punctuated by a decade of Bush’s Reagonomics on Steroids.

    This may come down to a vote between the haves and the have-nots, and Romney respresents the wealthy folks who have been closing down factories and outsourcing jobs to the detriment of the middle class. In short, there are a lot more have-nots than haves, and the gap is getting wider. Republicans are going to have to live with those consequences.

    Four years ago the nation was diagnosed with Stage 4 cancer

    And interesting double-whammy from former Florida Republican Governor Charlie Crist and former GOP presidential candidate Ron Paul. Neither of whom is terribly thrilled with Mitt Romney.

    First Crist, who makes a valid point many have forgotten:

    We often remind ourselves to learn the lessons of the past, lest we risk repeating its mistakes. Yet nearly as often, our short-term memory fails us. Many have already forgotten how deep and daunting our shared crisis was in the winter of 2009, as President Obama was inaugurated. It was no ordinary challenge, and the president served as the nation’s calm through a historically turbulent storm.

    The president’s response was swift, smart and farsighted. He kept his compass pointed due north and relentlessly focused on saving jobs, creating more and helping the many who felt trapped beneath the house of cards that had collapsed upon them.

    What Crist wrote matters, because it counters the latest GOP talking point, dutifully parroted by Fox’s Greta Van Sustern on ABC’s This Week this morning:

    While all the lying pricks and prick-ette’s are in Tampa maybe the Lord can hasten them all to their much desired Heavenly reward with Him…for this we pray.

    @10. jethro, I skimmed romney’s economic plan. It’s the standard republican talking points that have been proven, with facts and logic, to be bad for the middle and lower classes, again and again.

    Last time I checked, President Obama was working hard to save America from economic collapse, kill America’s enemies, and fix our broken health care system and expand it to cover all Americans. If that’s being an enemy of America, I’ll take it over Bushism any day.

    I took a quick gander at Romney’s “plan” for “Human Capital”..

    Pretty stomach turning…

    1) Block granting…
    2) money flows to private outfits (the more Republican, the better I presume)
    3) Personal “Re-employment” accounts
    4) Raise visa caps!

    Oh my! The last two are hilarious. #3 should created as many jobs as Health Savings Accounts helped get people health insurance..

    Then they want to let the cheap labor flood into the country!

    It is such a fucking joke!

    GOP Details Huge Medicare Change In Leaked Platform

    Sahil Kapur-August 27, 2012, 1:22 PM4061

    In a leaked party platform circulating on the eve of their convention, Republicans reveal in candid detail how they intend to upend Medicare.

    The platform, snagged by Politico on Friday night after the Republican National Committee accidentally posted it to its website before taking it down, is scheduled to be approved at the convention early this week.

    The text details the privatization policy that GOP lawmakers have supported for years, and that Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan are selling as necessary to “save” Medicare. But in an unusual twist, it addresses the specific aspect of the proposal that makes it a departure from what Americans know as “Medicare.”

    Fucking liars.

    He won’t say a word. It was White Christians so it’s all good. If it was black Moslems he’d be all over it.

    I wonder how long before we see one of these Military Militia groups succeed in something like this? They’ll hit a synagogue or a temple or some liberally oriented church and all the TeaBaggers will cheer them on and call them heroes, the way they did with Tim Mcveigh and Anders Breivik.

    These are people who steadfastly refuse to recognize rape as being a crime. Who make up phony conspiracy theories out of whole cloth to back up their arguments, then threaten violence when one points out the basic lie behind the idea.

    These are CRAZY PEOPLE, one cannot reason with the insane. It’s just not possible.
