Obama is trying to hold back the storm surge. Presidential race tied in Ohio newspaper poll (sample D+3): President Barack Obama, 49 percent. Republican challenger Mitt Romney, ditto…. This is a major change from a similar poll a month ago, when Obama held a 51-46 percent lead over Romney. Minnesota Poll: Obama leading, but Romney sees…

Democrat David Cicilline appears to be crumbling under devastating ads run by Brendan Doherty  highlighting Cicilline’s mismanagement of Providence when he was Mayor, his lies during the 2010 congressional campaign about Providence’s finances, and his soft law and order record. Doherty, the former Superintendent of the State Police with a stellar reputation, is…

You remember the creepy Obama children’s choir singing “Yes We Can” back in 2008. Now Obama supporters have rolled out another creepy video, via NewsBusters (h/t Marie) which has the full lyrics: The advertising agency Goodby, Silverstein & Partners has just released a pro-Obama commercial eerily reminscent of Lyndon Johnson’s controversial Daisy ad…

Posted by

After a rough week, Richard Mourdock has started hitting back at Joe Donnelly’s attempt to portray Mourdock as “pro-rape.” It’s unclear if the gaffe moved the needle much. Mourdock released a poll yesterday by McLaughlin & Associates, a well-regarded Republican polling firm, showing the race tied. That would be consistent with prior…

The effect has been to excuse Warren’s ethnic fraud in the minds of liberals who never “checked the box”…
