A shot across Miss October Surprise’s bow

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, a way of letting Obama and a certain female attorney supporter of his in California know that it’s not going to be Meg Whitman again.  There will be push back.

The Romney campaign will go there without going there itself.

This isn’t 2008, buddy.


Update:  Here we go, Gloria

Mitt knows how to play to win. No McCain, this time.

It’s about time that the Republicans fight back on the inevitable Democrat October Surprise. Good for the Romney campaign to anticipate this and show that they are going to “punch down twice as hard”. For once, I would like to see the Republican’s pick off a Democrat with an October Surprise.

BO was a coke dealer in college? WOW.

Get that story out there.

There is a vast difference btw dabbling with cocaine on a recreational basis, and actually selling the stuff. Serious crime. A Federal Crime. major difference from selling pot in the dorm too. Coke dealer means he bought coke from some serious criminals and then resold it.

I hope someone else runs with the story…

    If this pans out, and there are multiple witnesses who have signed and notarized affidavits, this could well be explosive for The One.

    Can you imagine this? The first President of the United States going down for a drug-related Federal crime…

    That would top everything from the Billboard Top 10.

    With all due respect, your advice is misguided.

    If Barack Obama was a cocaine dealer in college, it would be the very first of evidence of entrepreneurial effort on his part, and a poor example for those who look up to President Obama.

    Everything else Mr. Obama has done in his life seems to involve involve coercing others through the legal system and misguiding others through community organizing and politics.

    Then again, if he did ever engage in any sort of entrepreneurship and turned a profit, it would appear that there might be a problem with failing to report income to the IRS, State of New York, Commonwealth of Massachusetts, State of Illinois, State of California, State of Hawaii. [That list of jurisdictions is grimmer than I ever realized].

Romney knows that this campaign is not yet over, that Romney could blow it if his campaign lets up and tries to coast down that hill. Romney himself should continue to lead the charge up that hill, just like Teddy Roosevelt did so many years ago! 🙂

I’ve predicted for months that Obama’s “October surprise” will be in November, and it will be massively dramatic, the sort of thing only available to a President. What final effect it will have, I don’t know. I’m increasingly of the belief it might even backfire.

    Regarding the timing of the upcoming surprise: Johnson’s bombing halt came 5 days before the election. I watched the polls change day by day after the halt was announced, and Nixon’s lead shrink to almost zero. Had Johnson’s bombing halt occurred 2 days sooner, I think it would have shifted the election to Humphrey.

      raven in reply to Rick. | October 23, 2012 at 4:32 pm

      Yes. But that was the Pleistocene era of the media and mass culture. Things move much faster now — by factors of thousands. Obama needs enough time for shock-and-awe saturation but not enough for second-guessing.

      JimMtnViewCaUSA in reply to Rick. | October 23, 2012 at 5:01 pm

      But…so many people have already voted. If they don’t have an _early_ October surprise, it may not be of much use….

Pumkinhead! pumpkinhead1 pumpkin head…

This isn’t 2008, buddy.

Why can I hear Clint Eastwood’s voice when I read this?! 😉

“Go ahead [punk]*. Make my day.” And in the ACORN Cafe, no less! Hahahaha!

*Note to purists – I just had to add “punk” because of Obama’s petty performance last night.

Just spent a few minutes scanning

“The New Economic Patriotism: A PLAN FOR JOBS & MIDDLE-CLASS SECURITY”

Aside from the creepy Soviet-era terminology…

it is chock-a-block with lies, Obama taking credit for what has been done DESPITE him, and Moonpony BS.

Jack The Ripper | October 23, 2012 at 4:16 pm

I believe in God.

I truly do.

But when I think of Gloria Allred and her success/prominence, I sometimes start to feel a little agnostic.

You would have to go to the bottom of the ocean in a bathysphere to find anything as ugly, mean, and nasty as Gloria Allred.

Then again, I guess God “created” those creatures, too, so maybe Gloria Allred should not shake my faith in the existence of some higher power.

Of course, people who believe in the Devil and the Anti-Christ probably have their faith strengthened by Gloria Allred.

Shrill, opportunistic, client-exploiting, shameless self-promoting, media whoring, caustic, abrasive, egotistical, megomanical, truth-corrupting, justice-twisting, scolding, upbraiding, bilious, solipsistic, slanderous, society-rending, discord-promoting, grievance manufacturing, dissatisfaction exploiting harpy. She makes Al Sharpton, Jessie Jackson, and Michael Moore look benign!

Olbermann may be worse, but he’s not an “officer of the court.”

Is there a website dedicated to “hating” on Gloria Allred, because I would love to see that?

    spottedreptile in reply to Jack The Ripper. | October 23, 2012 at 6:48 pm

    God created Gloria Allred so we would all remember what good and decent really is. Sometimes we need that reminder.

      Jack The Ripper in reply to spottedreptile. | October 23, 2012 at 10:52 pm

      Dear spottedreptile,

      Interesting point, but did God believe that we needed that unsubtle a reminder?

      Burning yourself as a way of avoiding the hazards of hot liquids, hot surfaces, and open combustion, does not require 3rd degree burns.

      The God in which I believe is more carefully calibrated.

Raquel Pinkbullet | October 23, 2012 at 4:20 pm

I still believe that Mitt had run a horrible campaign up until the time of the 1st debate…After annihilating Obama in that 1st debate Romney and his campaign has really turned it around. I think that debate permanently shifted the race to Romney’s favor.
Last night during the debate, I would have preferred if Romney was a little more forceful on Libya, and not just playing for the draw. But then again, I think that was an OK strategy and it accomplished what it needed to do in showing Romney as capable a C-in-C, and outside of political junkies (who are obviously all decided) I doubt anyone even watched that debate.

With all that said, the main focus now should be on locking up OH. With the recent trends of VA, FL, and CO, OH is all that Mitt needs to win.

Obama and Allred had better hope Romney’s Romnesia doesn’t kick in and he forgets he said “No” to this.

NC Mountain Girl | October 23, 2012 at 4:34 pm

There has been a lot of speculation about Obama and hard drugs from his “coke nails” during his college days until more recently. When there was a several hour delay in an official statement after an attempted terror attack while he was on vacation with old friends in Hawaii one year I had to wonder. One explanation for the delay is that he had been in no shape to go before a camera.

At least Allred is licensed. And a citizen of the US.

theduchessofkitty | October 23, 2012 at 4:50 pm

Let the chips fall where they may.

As for that [expletive deleted], here’s what comes to mind: “Go ahead. Make my day!”

Henry Hawkins | October 23, 2012 at 4:55 pm

After a senate run, governor run, and two presidential runs, there isn’t much on Romney that could be trotted out now. Therefore, any Romney-related surprise will be a lie, but of the sort that cannot conclusively be proved or disproved before November 6th. Think Herman Cain & Gloria Allblue.

The scarier scenario is a desperate Obama team trying some action meant to bolster citizen support for their president that accidentally starts WWIII. This crew is capable of such selfish duplicity and possesses the requisite incompetence.

    “The scarier scenario is a desperate Obama team trying some action meant to bolster citizen support for their president that accidentally starts WWIII.”

    This is it.

Did Trump find someone from the Chicago “gay bathhouse” scene who is credible and talkative?

    theduchessofkitty in reply to JimMtnViewCaUSA. | October 23, 2012 at 5:18 pm


    Ask Kevin. He has heard all the stories from Chicago. The “gaydar” is strong with this one.

    Midwest Rhino in reply to JimMtnViewCaUSA. | October 23, 2012 at 7:28 pm

    Or pictures .. I like the pic Hillbuzz has with Obama sitting right up against a guy on the couch. His comment is great … “There have never been two straight males in the history of the world who have sat on the couch together like this.”

    Of course then Obama would run as the historic first gay president, even though we already have that. But his dishonesty would be the issue. Michelle’s unfiled divorce papers are another rumor of the Trump angle.

So I heard Allred is trying to unseal some private family court records. Don’t know what she could find. I don’t care anyway I’ve already voted.

I’ve been a stealth member of DU for years. The best time to visit is during election season… particularly when they go code red crazy and lock down the forum to members only. It used to be rare to see that much crazy congregated together outside of a mental ward.

According to Radar Online Allred is going to court in the morning in Boston to unseal some court records, to the Norfolk Probate Family Court in Canton, Massachusetts.

    george in reply to perdogg. | October 23, 2012 at 5:48 pm


    maybe this (from left wing site of unkown credibility)

    “I’ve read how horribly Mi$$ has treated Mormon women…he was some kind of ‘bishop’ in Boston”

      theduchessofkitty in reply to george. | October 23, 2012 at 6:33 pm

      So, she wants to go all “War on Women” on him… just as I suspected.

      If it has anything to do with adultery… She probably doesn’t even understand that many women would forgive something like that from a husband… but not all. If that is the case, then Ann is a better woman than most… and Mitt knows how to clean up his act and assume responsibility as a man.

      (Personally, I like it – and it shows a very strong character – when men assume responsibility for things of that nature and behave like better men because of it. If that is the case with Mitt, Bravo! We NEED more men like him!)

      If it has something to do with his bishop days: this will touch into something that no clergyman/woman ever wants to see happening in this country. Think of prosecution of clergy for, say, confessions of grievous sins, or counseling that was not followed. Think of pre-marital or marital counseling – how in danger it could be because of stuff like this, because some attorney with a grudge wants to destroy the clergy (current/former) in question.

      If she dares to do that, it will become open season on the right of clergy to counsel parishioners and such. She better not go there. She. Better. Not.

    theduchessofkitty in reply to perdogg. | October 23, 2012 at 6:21 pm

    As I said before,

    That @!%#$ better show one of three things:

    1. a woman with a love-child;
    2. a dead girl; or
    3. a live boy.

    Otherwise, I won’t bite. Capiche?

Mail Online has a article up on what they have been told Trump will expose.

I did a short post on it :

Basically this Kass fellow seems to think that Trump has solid info which shows Barack and Michelle had at one time planned to divorce. That Trump has the records.

myveryownpointofview | October 23, 2012 at 6:01 pm

OK, sorry that comment was nonsensical. 🙂

The story goes:

Douglas Kass, a Florida-based investor who appears on CNBC’s talkshow ‘Squawkbox’is convinced that Trump has unearthed divorce papers between obama and Michelle.

Who cares about their almost divorce? Are you kidding me Trump?

    myveryownpointofview in reply to Mom1981. | October 23, 2012 at 6:19 pm

    I feel the same way about it. The rumor has been out there for years anyway, and unless the reason given for wanting the divorce is extremely scandalous, I don’t see this being much of a thing.

    That is – if this “divorce” paperwork is even real AND the thing that Trump is threatening to expose.

      @myveryownpointofview: A divorce rumor wouldn’t mean much UNLESS it involves the President in an illicit relationship, say with Valerie Jarrett, who serves in the capacity of the Shadow President. Jarrett is supposed to be a close “family friend” of the Obamas but acts more like Barrack’s second wife. Allegedly, Jarrett has more access to the President than any of his other “advisers” and vets his important decisions including, it is reported, the Seal Team 6 mission to go after UBL. She also frequently joins the First Family at dinner in their private quarters in the WH. This close personal relationship is apparently untypical of the status and authority given to presidential advisers in previous administrations.

    Annie in reply to Mom1981. | October 23, 2012 at 6:20 pm

    It does seem pretty lame until you think of all the information that is in a divorce filing. I can’t imagine the big reveal would be that they filed for divorce; it would have to be the information contained therein.

theduchessofkitty | October 23, 2012 at 6:18 pm

I think there’s worse about The One that no one wants to touch…

… but it MUST SEE the light of day.

Jack The Ripper | October 23, 2012 at 6:22 pm

Has Anyone Ever Investigated Gloria Allred?

Bar Complaints?

Malpractice Claims?




Board Memberships? [Neal Boortz served on some board with her].

Lawsuits or causes of action (such as the well-endowed female banker?) that Gloria Allred filed or pursued in haste and abandoned?





Politicians she has supported?

Radaroline is reporting Allred is going to a Mass court tomorrow to get Romney’s testimony in a previous case unsealed.

[…] MUTUAL ASSURED DESTRUCTION? A shot across Miss October Surprise’s bow. […]

Trump and Drudge need to careful. Obama is on the ropes but his likeability numbers are still pretty good in the polls so anything that is seen as unfair or an attempt to skew the election right before we go to the polls might backfire.

It is nice to have something as a back-up or to hit back with. You might even use it preemptively if it looks like the left is going to unleash something but it is better if we can beat Obama straight up and not risk everything on a last minute maneuver.

After the election Obama will need to write yet another autobiography dealing with more contemporary themes. It will probably be made into a major motion picture of the same name: I Am A Fugitive From A Choom Gang.

Trump has been sitting on something very damaging to obama for a couple of months.

My guess is College transcripts or equivelent showing obama receiving scholarships or aid as foreign born student. Other juicies could include the REAL birth certificate, or smoking gun evidence proving Social Security number Idenity Theft.

Trump has been fed up with Barry Sotoro’s giant con on the American people for over a year but has been muzzled by the Politcal elite, the obama administration and the Lame Stream Media.

Dangerous to mess with the Donald’s ego and reputation.

High Noon tommorrow via Twitter.

If Trump’s surprise brings any risk of backfiring, Romney will distance himself from it, and he should. This is no time to be picking up weapons heaved in from left field at the last minute.

Trump may be about to have his Geraldo Rivera Capone’s Tomb moment.

    “picking up weapons heaved in from left field at the last minute” may end up being a Hellfire missle being guided by Raptor Drone which has been meticulously planned in advanced detail…
