4th Greatest President Ever reaches Stage 3 of campaign grieving

Posted by

We knew how great Obama was. Because he told us: The 4th Greatest President Ever has an important announcement which reflects the Greatness of His Office and the seriousness of his campaign: Stage 3? Yes, someone is in Stage 3.  Of campaign grieving.  And it’s not Mitt Romney. Bargaining — Traditionally the bargaining stage for people facing death…

A shot across Miss October Surprise’s bow

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. I consider this a shot across the bow,…

Romney’s Rovian BBBB strategy

Posted by

The wheels on the Obama bus are falling off. Unless someone can bring up an October surprise which allows the careening vehicle to hit Romney, the momentum is unmistakably against Obama. The man on the bus just unveiled a strategy of re-introducing himself to the American people — after 4 years!  He even has a…

It truly is hard to overstate the joy on the left with Obama’s horses and bayonets “zinger” last night. This summary at HuffPo reflected the joy: There were no binders full of women at the final presidential debate on Monday, but there were certainly horses and bayonets. President Barack Obama countered Mitt Romney’s comment that…

With two weeks until Election Day, Operation Counterweight in Upstate New York is approaching its home stretch. Below is an update for the 19th district, where Chris Gibson faces Julian Schreibman. While Gibson is doing well in this Democratic district, Roll Call still rates it a tossup.  Please donate to Gibson today…

If Obama gets any shorter, he’ll need a ladder to lift his bayonet onto his high horse

Obama loves straw man arguments, known on the internets as being a shorter.  The false choice between Obama’s position on an issue and some absurd extreme alternative is Obama’s way of framing most issues. “Some say” we should have no government or similar ridiculousness is a typical Obama refrain in order to justify massive…

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. Why is this?  It’s because I don’t listen…

Best Tweets of the Final Debate — Romney as The President, Obama as desperate challenger

Posted by
10/22/2012 at 10:30pm
This was a strange debate. It was as if Romney were the incumbent and Obama was the challenger. I felt that Romney was running out the clock from the start, trying not to make any gaffes, proving he is worldly and reasonable. Obama was the aggressor, both in words and…

Foreign Policy Presidential Debate Night

Starts at 9 p.m. Eastern. This should be fun.  Obama has to attack Romney, he just has to.  The momentum is going Romney’s way.  A draw, nothing changes result is big for Romney. In theory this debate has the least risk for Romey, but I think that theory is wrong.  Obama can hide…

I have been following the Senate race in my home State of Rhode Island and Providence Plantations since last December, when I asked you to meet Barry Hinckley, the guy who can take down Sheldon Whitehouse.  I wrote at the time: “The Senate seat in Rhode Island could be the shocker of 2012.” Since that time I have…

In case you haven’t heard, lily white Elizabeth Warren got herself listed as a Minority Law Teacher and Woman of Color by falsely claiming to be Native American, even though she clearly did not meet the definition used by Harvard and the EEOC. Warren was reported by both the U. Penn. and…
