A sad commentary indeed, leading one to ponder WHERE'S THE BEEF!
Ain't gonna get you Ohio, my friend.
Whoa, I'll bet 'Hal is cringing.

 memo to the Clown Club

oh boy....Hannity on right now on radio....Libya scandal is absolutely blowing up...the polls reflect hte fact that Libya is already hurting Obama. ...Mitts performance in the polls isn't just from winning the debates , although that has given him a tremendous surge .....even Huffpost grudgingly published a list of major polls released on thursday, along with their laughable and desperate Pro-Obama spin......one was even, one had Romney up one, three were 50/47 Romney, one was plus 2 for Romney and one was plus two for Obama but under 50 percent for Barry......the fact that Obama can't reach 50 % in virtually any of these recent polls (apparently he did it in one poll), and really hasn't done it in all the polls of summer and fall, is a sign that the campaign is in trouble.... H.P.T. the Third (Hal)

Romney Campaign Exaggerates Size Of Nevada Event With Altered Image

 memo to the Clown Club

Gallup daily national tracking is now back to 51/46 Romney after dipping down to 50/49 Romney for a few das. So much for the post-debate "surge" for Obama..bwaahahahwnahaha I'll take 51/46 gallup against whatever brownie points your side can come up with from ridiculing Meatloaf's appearance at the Mitt rally in Ohio....the thundering waves of laughter directed at your (losing) Team Obama side now is finally drowning out the constant horselauhging and snickering you've been doing towards Romney for the last six months. bwahahahahahahahaaahahahahaahahahah.. Hedge Fund Hal

Finis Hominis

That picture is horrible. If I were mittens I’d pin that on opposition dirty tricks. That photoshop is so bad my dog laughed at it.

 memo to the Clown Club

sory that should read "after dipping down to 50/47 Romney for a few days"...Romney has come back up three more points, not five...

Gentlemen Rouge

Meatloaf, Rmoney’s response to Obama’s Springsteen. You gotta love it.

T-S

Goldman commented on an interesting perspective today. He pointed out that the right and pollsters are focusing on white men and that about 38% of white men are voting Romney. That leaves all the other people voting for Obama . . . give or take a few. Practically all Latinos and Blacks. A huge majority of women. And a lot of young white guys.

Like I said, Everybody knows Obama is going to win.

Hahahahahahahaha. I don't have to stretch Rasmussen into a pretzel to prove my case. A little common sense is all it takes.

Coiler

Yes, VG we cannot fail especially after Stenchy getting the ML endorsement.

Hedge Fund Hal

'POLLSTERS ARE FOCUSING ON WHITE MEN"........ hhahahaah doesn't Goldman understand the modern polling science these respected polls like Gallup and ABC/WSJ use?...they don't "focus" on any one group.....weird comment....latest polls show Wisonsin is a tie.....Rasmussen has Ohio a 48/48 tie....with Libya coverage all weekend on cable tv and radio news, making Obama look bad, both states could turn north for Romney by Monday or Tuesday, especially Ohio which has been sitting at 49/48 rasmussen for several days..

T-S

I don't know if anyone else watched Pelosi on Rose's show last night but she argued vehemently that both Reid and she told Obama to take the deal offered under Simpson Bowles and it was the Republicans that walked away. That means that all three Democrats had social security on the table and cuts were agreed to. Both Reid and Pelosi told Obama to take the deal and they would cover him.

Unbelievable. Totally. And you all wonder why I'm done with the Democrats?

Here's what Obama, Reid and Pelosi were willing to give to the Republicans according to her own words last night:

The sham of Simpson-Bowles by Jan Shakowsky

A grand bargain for the very rich. Unbelievable.

"sitting at 48/48 rasmussen for several days..."

Hedge Fund Hal

T-S , when all the polls were going your way, in the "it's over " days of mid to late September i saw no posts from you complaining about pollsters "focusing on white men" and im fairly certain there were no complaints by Goldman to that effect, on his radio show during those recent but somehow now so far away days. bwahahahahahahahah

T-S

And I'm not complaining about pollsters (plural) now. Am I?

Hey Hal, here in the OH 10 we’re reading and discussing Mitts current lie.
Romney repeats false claim of Jeep outsourcing to China; Chrysler refutes story

Romney apparently was referencing conservative bloggers who misrepresented a Bloomberg story from Monday that discussed Chrysler’s decision to consider starting Jeep production in China, the world’s largest new-vehicle market.

His lie made the people mad, but when Chrysler found out they hit the roof.

Romney cites incorrect auto manufacturing claim in Ohio

A Chrysler spokesman scorned the misinterpretation as "a leap that would be difficult even for professional circus acrobats," explaining, "Jeep has no intention of shifting production of its Jeep models out of North America to China. It's simply reviewing the opportunities to return Jeep output to China for the world's largest auto market. U.S. Jeep assembly lines will continue to stay in operation."

Try listening to some of the talk radio stations streaming over the innertubes. Rmoney is making the ground game here easy. By the way, his crowds are very small here; maybe he should doctor the image.

Have fun Hal.

Hedge Fund Hal

hahaha BR ....Even Brian Williams of NBC News admits that Obama's crowds are quite small now compared to 2008....he talked about places where the crowds were 50000 in 2008 that are now only turning out 5000.....hmmm, funny i heard just the opposite about Romneys crowds in Ohio, BR....gee i wonder who im going to believe ...respected national radio talkshow and network TV news hosts or a (paid?) flack for Team Obama in Ohio.....hmmmmmmmm....bwahahahahahahh....are you the guy in the pic in the dayton newpaper standing behind obama on the stage in the black t shirt? all the other pics showed no recognizable individuals....

T-S

Per Huffington, Mitt's giving up on Ohio and is moving his push to Snot Walker's state, Wisconsin. The home of such luminaries as Reince Preibus and Paul (I got social security but you don't) Ryan.

BlackRhino

Hal, I let me suggest this to ease your mind; I’m wrong, TV news hosts are wrong and the polls are wrong. Because the only right, will be the vote counted Nov 7.
Is that me? Maybe, maybe not; if I answered that question I would defeat the whole anonymous posting thing.

Cheers Hal

Hedge Fund Hal

h'e not goving up on Ohio and i know that's not even what was said in huffington...... im going to call a "T-S"... source it ! source it!

Hedge Fund Hal

T-S and BR...google "why Romney doesnt need a poll lead in Ohio" National Review Online....there is some very interesting and for you two, i guess "disturbing" news regarding several facors that tend to make the Ohio polls suspect in terms of showing Romney's true stength. For one thing it seems a lot of people are fibbing in Ohio in regards to having voted early. This is giving Obama a huge overweighting in early voting (early voting has been shown to favor the Democratic candidate by a wide margin) which skews his overall lead over Romney and makes it very difficult for Romney to catch up on paper, as he battles these bogus numbers. There are several other factors listed but im not going to spoonfeed you guys the information.

Hedge Fund Hal

"and I'm not now complaining about polls. Am I ?"- T-S.......yeah you seemed to be doing something of that sort actually, T-S. The polls are telling you, with a few outlier/minor poll exceptions that Obama is winning the popular vote and his lead is slowly growing. ABC/WSJ, Gallup, and Rasmusen all have him at 50% or above. Your comments seemed to imply that there are all these millions of people ( a lot of young white guys, these huge, huge numbers of women, almost all blacks and latinos) who are voting for Obama, in fact the number is so big its almost everyone except for some sour, embittered old white men who refuse to get in step with the 2012 Obama parade, in fact,only 38% of white men, you wrote ......but the polls say this simply isn't so.....if anything we know from the sampling methods that the republicans are being undercounted...... it's pretty much a given that if the polls are wrong, the right number would give Romney even more votes.......so if you don't have a problem wiht the poll numbers i'm really confused ....your theory is apparently that Obama is actually way ahead in the popular vote...the polls just dont support that....hahaT-S.....sorry....

H. P. Throckmorton the Third- CEO, Dream Fifteen/4S Beatdown Fund

Rasmussen Daily Tracking this morning......Romney50%/Obama 46%...now a point up, to a four point lead, after several days with a 3 point lead...... 5 days in a row at 50%.....Rasmussen Wisconsin 49/49 and Ohio 48/48 those numbers will break soon , in my opinion, maybe Wisconsin first since Ohio is so stubborn , and they will both break in Romneys favor.........even the numbers as they are may actually be ahead numbers for Romney since 3/4 to 5/6 of the undecideds uuusually break fo rthe challenger........even i Pensylvania, Obam acan't crack the 50% mark.......note that my new fund has revised it's name a bit to the final name choice- Dream Fifteen/4S Beatdown Fund

thomas, as a numbers man you should appreciate a poll which has money at stake. take a look at intrade, you'll be shocked.

H. P. Throckmorton the Third

G allup Daily Tracking in for today Romnry holds yesterdays lead 51/46.....Here's one jolly fact for you nameless, hot off the presses, from The Washington Times......"Mitt Romneys Gallup daily tracking poll numbers are now better than any incumbent candidate , dating back to 1936......Critics of Gallup say that this poll is an otlier and that all other polls show a closer race. But in this age of poll averaging, it is important to remember that sometimes only one pollster gets it right. ......."

T-S

Thank god we're beyond Rasmussen . . . that Republican rag. I think, Throckmorton (P. Gildersleeve is it?) you are in for a big wake up call. I can't wait to read your excuse making then. Mind if I start laughing now? Hahahahaha.

T-S

Sorry about the double posting above. My computer was acting up (or this site was) and it didn't appear to have taken the first time.

H. P. Throckmorton the Third

nameless, you'll notice i'm no longer responding directly to T-S. T-S is now banidhed to the kitchen eating Thanksgiving dinner at the card table, the children's table, while we adults eat and talk in the diing room. T-S failed the "adult test" when i asked her to join me in both admitting that each of our respective candidates could lose this election. Children should be seen and not heard from, and certainly not conversed with.

KS blathers

Looks like the leftists are ignoring the constitution once again and throwing the kitchen sink. Ogabe and the White House are trying desperately to steal the election.





Smells like voter fraud by Democrats in Ohio




T-S

Ah, to the arena of clear-minded, objective and visionary thinking of children. Away from the smoke-filled, money-concentrated, cynical environment of old white men while their women will be in the kitchen cleaning up and discussing the latest technology in can openers and laundry detergents.

Want to join me, nameless?

I simply don't understand why you seem content with 'Hal's avoidance. I thought this would crush you and bring you to tears.
Come on HP Throck tell us who specifically joins you at the grown-up table. Seems like a lonely place to be, are you sure you're not really at the pool in Monaco or may be cruising in your Mercedes.
Nov 7th is approaching, my friend! Bwahahaha

KS blathers

Unfortunately, things like this will occur in this election and hopefully it will not occur enough to sway the result. Time will tell.






Reports of voter fraud by Democrats in Ohio




Chucks

I see where Gallup is reporting a 7 point drop in Obama's approval rating over the past 3 days. I wonder how much the piss poor handling of the assasination in Libya and the unearthing of the tactical cover up of the administration role in the death of the Diplomat and some very heroic Americans.
The guy still is stonewalling and not coming clean. It is probably too late to pick a Captain or Sergeant to throw under the bus. But they will try. The CIA, The Pentagon and State are denying giving the order to stand down or denying the request for emergency back up.
Maybe we should expect a drone strike on anybody to show he is "tough". It would be too late for the truth to come out on our killing the wrong Libyan men before the election.
Can you imagine the drop in approval for the guy if the press were giving the situation a fair airing.
Romney is going to be a much better President. Pretty sure this will be the final nail, or at least so I pray.
I still can't believe how many of you King County libs are still hopey-changey over this guy. It is pathetic.

Observer

So, let me see now, does that mean you're at the grown-up table. Guess only conservatives get to sit with mommy & daddy. Better get out the paperwork and study the hell out of Obamacare. Bwahahah

Chucks

Oh good grief! Glenn Beck gets Blaze TV up and running and now Algore's little project, Current TV gets put up for sale.
Keith Olberman and now Joy Bahar could not keep the attention of the high school and college kids.
Oh well, join Air America and the rest of liberal/progressive broadcasters in broadcasting hell.
It did prove me wrong about one thing. I thought that liberal/progressives didn't listen to talk radio because of the lack of pictures. Even with pictures they couldn't keep the attention of the target audience.
I wonder how long MSNBC will be allowed to bleed money.

H. P. Throckmorton the Third

good God, i just checked Gallupafter rading Chuck's post. Obama has sunk down to 46% approval rating...they show him at 52% during the first week of October. This is seriously bad news for Barack. They say the incumbent wants to be at 50% or above by elecition day. Yes, i don't think the debates. although they didnt help him (a modest margin of Americans say Romney woN the debates) can account for tHis kind of drop. Has to be Libya. It is only going to get worse over the next 9 days. Foxnews is all over this with superb coverage of it.

H. P. Throckmorton the Third

this lib jackass pollster Nate Silver, wiht the N.Y. Times and his precious 538.com, a favorite among the Clown Club here on Blatherwatch, is really going into coniptions and mental contortions every day now trying to spin and rationalize Romney's undeniable weeks long upward surge, that is still continueing. I can't wait until election day and Silver's big prognostications and analyses are all reduced to a steaming pile, as things liek the phony, exaggerated early voter count for Dems in Ohio and other largely unreported factors there give Romney his victory in Ohio and as well as in many other swing states to the point ot where his win will not br close. F you , Silver. hbbbwwhahahhaahahaahahahahahhh

Hedge Fund Hal /Dream Fifteen Beatdown Fund

the hysteria and panic is with the Nate Silver's and the Kimmies who just cannot believe they are losing to that "Mormon rube" Mitt Romney?.....Intrade?hhahaha.how scientific....+29?, +24?,bwahahahahahhaaa, i get it youre doing a gag post , right Kimmie?.... Washington Post? The ABC/Washington Post Poll which is the only Washington Post Poll that matters has Romney up one point, 49/48. That poll is part of the Realclearpolitics poll average , which averages the scores of 10 major polls, including all of the biggest, most respected major polls (cbs, Nbc, abc/washington post, Gallup, Politico and Rasmussen, has an average score of plus one percent for Romney. He's held a small edge in the poll average for some days, and i look for that margin to start moving north. Unseating an incumbent President is not an easy thing to do at all, it is done fairly rarely, and not something that the American people do lightly. Even with Carter the voters waited until the last few days to finally turn toward Reagan.

Hedge Fund Hal /Dream Fifteen Beatdown Fund

my above post left out a word or two....just to reiterate and clarify......Realclearpolitics Poll Average (10 major polls, including the 6 I mentioned by name) as of today) - Romney +1.

Hedge Fund Hal

Politico is reporting their polls are now showing an uptick for Romney in Ohio, and they join Rasmussen in calling it a tie. Politico has it 49/49 in Ohio, while Rasmussen is still showing it locked at 48/48 in the Buckeye state. Mid-week, look for the "Reagan effect" to kick in for Romney as voters who are not happy with Obama but reluctant to overturn a sitting President for various reasons, finally decide to switch to the challenger just as they did with Reagan in 1980, days before the election. Rasmussen Daily tracking shows Romney holding 50% at 50/47. Gallup Daily tracking won't be out intil 10:30 am our time.

ohoh BR ohoh Br The Ohio Newspaper Organization Poll from a month ago had Obama up by 5 points.....as of this weekend the same poll has the race a dead heat 49/49/...... but .....wait a while wait a while BR........ now Gallup has your guy Barry's approval rating slipping under 50%...46% yesterday...up a bit to 48% today....seems this Libya thing just won't go away and is really giving your team a beating,.. an "oh no Mr. Bill" moment for First Dude and your team there..... what goes down keeps going down until First Tuesday.....in this case it does.....bwahahahahahahahahahaha

 Mr. Throckmorton /  Dream Fifteen Beatdown Fund

First Dude's "interpretaion" of Romney's Op-ed about the Detroit bailout wsa wrong, even Letterman called him out on it on his show, calling him a liar, and Romneys "inerpretation" of the Chrysler plans for Jeep produciton was wrong as well, wiith you and your team calling Romney a liar. "That's what these guys do", Ohioans mutter, and go on about their business. Nothing to see here folks. Move along please.
