I think it was a tremendous victory for Romney at the debate last night.  Usual caveats about there being a month to go, he still may be trailing in some key states, etc. Romney needed to take his case directly to the American people because the media is out to get him.  He did…

MSNBC’s Matthews gives epic smackdown of Obama

Posted by

Have you learned to tune your t.v. immediately to MSNBC after any political event? If you haven’t, you would have missed an epic rant tonight against Obama from *up tingles* Chris Matthews where he chastises Obama for simply “enduring” through the presidential debate: “I don’t know what he was doing out t…

Best Tweets of the First Presidential Debate

Posted by
10/3/2012 at 10:30pm
Here are the tweets I selected during the debate. I score the first debate as a clear win for Romney. Obama was bumbling, Romney was on target with facts. Even Obama supporters — the semi-honest ones — were tweeting in despair. @theplumlinegs I mean this respectfully, your guy is getting hammered—…

Presidential Debate Night

Posted by
10/3/2012 at 8:30pm
Starts at 9 p.m. Eastern. This is just an open thread for people to make their feelings known.  I’m not going to “live blog” it. But I may jump in with some thoughts as it goes along, maybe at any breaks. And at the end, there will be an assessment. So have at it.

Scott Brown challenges Elizabeth Warren on lack of Massachusetts law license

Posted by
10/3/2012 at 7:39pm
The Brown campaign has been silent on the issue of Elizabeth Warren’s broad and longstanding practice of law from her Cambridge office without being licensed in Massachusetts. I assume that the Brown campaign wanted to have all their legal ducks in a row before they jumped on the issue.  As numerous commenters pointed…

Now about all those media memes about how the election was over. When Romney nominated Paul Ryan.  When Clint Eastwood talked to an empty chair.  When Romney didn’t get enough of a convention bounce.  When Bill Clinton gave Obama a bounce.  When Romney was the only one answering the Libya phone at 3…

Congressman Jesse Jackson Jr. is running for reelection in Illinois’s second congressional district.  Except he’s not exactly running. His name is on the ballot. But Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. hasn’t made a campaign appearance since the primary. The Democratic congressman from Chicago is running for re-election for his seat in the House of…

Haven’t decided what to do for the debate, which starts at 9 p.m. Eastern. Live blog? Open thread? Nothing but post-analysis? So many people will be doing “live blogs” I’m wondering if it makes sense to do that here. What do you think? In any event, we will do something.

A newly surfaced 2002 tape of Obama speaking at an MLK Day Memorial Service is, in many ways, even more important than the Daily Caller video released last night. In this video, revealed at Patterico, Obama plays the class warfare and race cards at the same time, tying in Enron executives and Bull Connor (emphasis by…

Back in July, when Alderman Moreno and Chicago Mayor Emanuel decided that the best way to represent “Chicago Values” was to penalize a company for its president’s personal views, Chick-fil-A had a brand rating of 62 according to rankings by researcher YouGov. New statistics released by the company show that the war…

The Boston Globe is being dragged kicking and screaming to facts regarding Elizabeth Warren’s private law practice history, including her representation of Dow Chemical which Warren never previously disclosed to the press (emphasis mine): Warren, a Harvard Law School bankruptcy specialist, released a list of 13 cases Monday night, just 15 minutes before the…

The Obama fairy tale exposed, once again

The video of Obama from 2007 will not itself change the election. At that level, it was over-hyped. But it is a reminder of the nasty side of Obama, the side well-hidden, the side which does not hesitate to play racial and class politics when convenient and to his advantage.   The side…

A follow up to yesterday’s post about a sign in Glenview, Illinois. From reader Jeff: Attached is another of those nasty repubs in Chicago being insubordinate to our fearless leader. Interstate 290 in Schaumburg, a suburb northwest of Chicago. About 15 minutes or so northwest of O’hare airport. If something isn’t done soon, it may…

The Daily Caller has posted this video, from a speech given by Obama. Parts of the speech have been seen before. (Full speech video here.) In a video obtained exclusively by The Daily Caller, then-presidential candidate Barack Obama tells an audience of black ministers, including the Rev. Jeremiah Wright, that…

Because a tape is being released on Hannity tonight. And based on this tease by Drudge, it should be big. Guesses? One thing for sure, Democrats will scream Racism! for showing a tape of Obama saying words which are not helpful to Obama. Maybe that will result in a third Obama speech on race. One…
