A shot across Miss October Surprise’s bow

Posted by  ▪  October 23, 2012
Everyone is waiting for October Surprises to be  unloaded on Romney. The Obama campaign and its supporters are desperate, and that desperation will reach a fevered pitch this weekend  if Obama doesn’t get a meaningful bounce out of last night’s debate.  Few are predicting he will.

Romney missed chance to hit Obama out of the park on foreign policy

Posted by  ▪  October 23, 2012
Dear Gov. Romney: I apparently disagree with many (most?) of my philosophical compatriots in my assessment of your performance last night.  They think you did much better than I think you did.  But that’s no surprise.  We disagreed after both of the previous debates, too.
