EXCLUSIVE — New infographic shows just how damaging first debate was for Obama

Posted by  ▪  October 5, 2012
First, there was the CBS instant poll taken immediately following Wednesday night’s Presidential debate. The poll was a “scientifically representative” sample of uncommitted voters that showed Romney cruising to an overwhelming victory by a margin of 2-1 over President Obama.

Obama supporters lined up to greet the president in Madison, Wisc., on Thursday. While there, they were asked by Rebel Pundit if they thought it was fair that Obama didn’t have his teleprompter at the debate this week. Pure video gold:
 

More evidence debunking Elizabeth Warren’s “elopement” story

Posted by  ▪  October 5, 2012
I previously wrote about how Elizabeth Warren elopement story falls apart.  That “story” is Warren’s claim that she always believed she was Native American because her parents said they had to elope because her father’s white family would not accept her mother because her mother was part Cherokee and part Delaware. The is no evidence of…

Obama can celebrate the jobs report, the American people cannot

Revenge of how the “unemployment rate” is calculated

Who could have predicted this, a made for headlines declining nominal “unemployment rate” which would be used by the Obama campaign to its advantage while the reality underneath the numbers showed a disaster. I predicted it, as did many others. The September jobs report has the headline the Obama campaign wanted:  September Jobs Report:…

“the president’s restrained approach to communicating with the electorate”

Posted by  ▪  October 5, 2012
I wrote off Politico a long time ago.  Remind me not to look at the Politico links you send. Sure, just like NYT and WaPo it’s hard not to look and link, because it covers so much ground. But really, nonsense like this article written from three of the biggest names at Politico,…

Roundup of the liberal meltdowns after debate

Posted by  ▪  October 5, 2012
The left must not have been mentally prepared for Obama’s stuttering, stammering, deer-in-the-headlights, dismal debate performance Wednesday night. Because the reaction from the left was total meltdown. So I’ve compiled the best. Feel free to add your own in the comments. The meltdown that started it all: Chris Matthews’s on Rachel Maddow’s post-debate…

Sorry AARP, you own Obamacare

Posted by  ▪  October 4, 2012
I have written numerous times about AARP’s love affair with Obamacare, including recently disclosed documents showing coordination of strategy.  Proponents of Obamacare often cited AARP’s support as the equivalent of the Good Housekeeping Seal of Approval. Few AARP members probably realize how big a role AARP played in Obamacare. AARP, however, is not…

A new cloak for media bias: the fact-check segment

Posted by  ▪  October 4, 2012
The media have fully deployed their defenses to protect President Obama after his dismal debate performance last night. So far two tactics have been employed, the first is the thinly veiled “fact check” attacks, while the other is calling Romney a bully for his take-charge performance. It is unsurpising that the same…
