You're dreaming HFH, simply dreaming; you will be shocked into reality come Nov 7th. I would suggest you use the time that you're presently wasting to dream this way for studying Obamacare, because when the full effects of it takes place in 2014, those who are familar with it will reap the beneits of it's overall plan.
So, I would advise you cease and desist dilly-dallying and get down and prepare for four more years of our dearly beloved President.
Mittens is wasting so much time and effort in this futile attempt, not to mention the $money.
I wish you well under a continuing administration my friend.

Coiler

The Stench just keeps talking...suggested it would be 'even better' to send any and all responsibilities of the federal government 'to the private sector,' disaster response included.

So: Romney essentially favored privatizing disaster response.

BlackRhino

Hey Rhino, are you worried?
Posted by: T-S | October 28, 2012 at 07:37 PM

In a word, nope.
I see the lies of the Rmoney campaign has been noticed by the media.

”Romney takes heat for new ad on jobs, auto rescue” Detroit Free Press


“Romney Ad Wrongly Implies Chrysler Is Sending U.S. Jobs To China,” National Journal

National Journal’s Ron Fournier said there was no sound defense for the Romney ad.

Politico’s Ben White tweeted “Wait, not only did Romney camp not back off the erroneous Jeep to China canard, they made an ad out of it? My god”

Hedge Fund Hal

"what-me worry? Of cawse nawt." Last Gallup Daily Tracking we may see for a few days because of Sandy now has Romney back over 50%, at 51/46 , which is , again, the highest poll lead in Gallup among likely voters for a challenger, going back to 1936. I think we are starting ot see the beginning of the "Reagan effect" over the weekend and today, with several embarrassing public defections out of Obama's camp from some major liberals, the first time ever lead for Romney in Ohio in Rasmussen( 50/48) , and other good polling signs. People are startng to give themselves permission to vote against a sitting President. You may not be worried BR, but NBC's political Director Chuck Todd is. He said 8 days or so ago that he would be worried if by this time this week Obama was still stuck in the 47, 48% marks in the polls. He's still stuck there. Even with Rasmussen tracking where Obama gained a point on Romney from Sunday cutting the lead from 3 points to 2, Obama remained at 47%, unchanged and Romney dropped a point to the undecideds, from 50 to 49.

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) put aside his campaigning for Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney on Sunday to praise President Barack Obama for his responsiveness to the Garden State's needs in preparing for Hurricane Sandy.

During a briefing with emergency personnel, residents and press, Christie thanked Obama for holding a conference call with him and governors of other states expected to be impacted by the storm, the Star-Ledger reports.

“I appreciated the president’s outreach today in making sure that we know he’s watching this and is concerned about the health and welfare and safety of the people of the state of New Jersey,” he said.

T-S

Hmmm. I gotta admit: a few more lies and he might win.

I read an article today from David Stockman - remember him oh ye GOPpers? He said Romney's no businessman. Mitt Romney: The Great Deformer

Except Mitt Romney was not a businessman; he was a master financial speculator who bought, sold, flipped, and stripped businesses.

Right up your alley, huh Hal? Your despicable and thieving alley.

I wonder how much America will be worth once he's sold, flipped and stripped it dry?

Hedge Fund Hal

is it just me, or is T-S showing a fit of anger as her phony facade of carefully contrived confidence in Obama's "certain victory" is beginnign to crack. Have you folks ever watched one of those videos buildings of a controlled explosion of an old Las Vegas hotel or some such huge edifice? of course you have. This is something similar to the collapse of Obama's support that you saw just getting started for real this weekend. Once it gets going the speed rate of the collapse grows exponentially. bwaahahahahahaahaha

Hedge Fund Hal

the usual suspects liek AMSNBC MSN.com, CNN, CBS News, Morning Joe Scarborough, and Mika, ad nauseum, will cherry pick one individual, usually historicaly inaccurate libber poll which shows a slight overnight gain for Obama, cutting down Romneys lead or even showing the smallest of leads for Romney, and they pounce on it, going "aha!", this proves Mitt is stalled out." The problem is that there are other polls which have gone the opposite way overnight and show an uptick of two or three points for Romney. The realclearpolitics poll average still ends up showing about a one point lead for Romney, a lead which he has kept steadily since the first debate.

T-S

I touched a nerve, Hal? My, my. Yes, right up your despicable and thieving alley. Something only you could be proud of.

And no, Obama will win hands down even though I'm not voting for him. You are so easy.

Observer

And Mittens has added to his woes by allowing that ad depicting Jeep as outsourcing their production, when Jeep itself has denied it big time. Our President's team has pointed out the lies in a subsequent ad and left Mittens and his entourage looking like a bunch of village idiots.
Nov 7th will be a day of rejoicing for us, no doubt about it.
Hal, you'll be licking your wounds, my man. Bwahahaha

Hedge Fund Hal

is she really sure about that, folks? "hands down"?bwahah Gallup is reporting thatRomney is winning in the early voting, 52%/45%, and those left that still plan to vote early are tied 49/49. According to Gallup then, early voting is a done deal for Romney as of today. Also Gallup erports that the Repubs will have a everal point adcantage over the Dems in total turnout, reversing 2008 where the Dems had an eight point lead in turnout over the Repubs, Most of the polls have been weighted according to the 2008 party voter turnout model. This is another "oh no, Mr. Bill!!" moment for Team Obama, since because they have absolutely no faith in the depth of their real support, their cynical trump card was always to get their koolaiders out voting early in mobs and droves, run up the score for Obama in early voting, and discourage the Repub regular voters, priamrily the older and elderly Repub voters, from voting at hte polls on First Tuesday. As with Obama's bebate srtategy, this strategy is another epic fail. hahahahahahahahaa..........hahaT-S hahaT-S.......... Romney daily tracking, Romney continues to hold his weeks long now lead over Obama at 49/47, and has repeated yesterdays first ever lead in Ohio at 50/48. ....."hands down"........hahaahahaaaah

Hedge Fund Hal

Rasmussen Daily Tracking, not Romney

Hedge Fund Hal

as for the T-S'es loathing of Romney as an "evil greedy man", now using her surrogate Stockman, i guess she didn't ge the memo Obama has already tried that srtategy, in the six months leading up to the debates, only to see it crash and burn disastrously, once Americans saw what kind of guy Romney really is in the three debates. He wasted almost all his campaign ad money on that strategy for his ads. Now Obama is broke, tryign to get a bank loan for the campaign. Even if he gets the 15 million from Bank of America, it doesn't match the 100 million Romney has now stored up, for a last week power blitz of ads. These ads aer incredibly important now, with both campaigns riding the benches because of the storm.

OneWhoKnows

Sorry, but Romney's big money will not buy him a victory.

Coiler

No, especially when our commander in chief is being praised by Chris Christie. We cannot fail

KS blathers

Chris Christie will run for Pres. in the future and win.

Hedge Fund Hal

hahaahaah The Dems are so desperate that Michal Moore is running his new anti-Romney TV ad featuring a group of very old people cursing and laughing. A 95 year old white woman says if Romney gets in by using voter supression, that she'll " burn this motherfucker down". An old black woman threatens to track Romney down and kick him in the nuts, if "the Republicans steal this election". Good God.

Coiler

How is that possible to be in a TV ad? Is this another one of your characters acting out?

Hedge Fund Hal

the relevant words are bleeped out but there is no doubt concerning what they are saying.

Hedge Fund Hal

the commercial was shown on hannitys tv show on Foxnews tonight...... there may be another repeat of the show tonight

yes, very good Coiler, very similar to Gordon . And may i say greed is good. Johnson, like Gordon with his "pal", is a name i reserve for people that i have very little or no respect for.

Obama and Christie: A Sandy love story

What will Coulter say? Bwaaahhhhaa!

Hedge Fund Hal

what is this man-boobed moron trying to do? throw the election to Obama so he can run in 2016? there was no reason for him to say anything other than the polite minimum thank was required. he behaved like a jackass when it is a time to be partisan to the hilt and not give the opponent any unnecessary advantage. it seemed after the initial criticism that this guy got all huffy and decided to do it even more the next day to show he couldn't be pushed around. But no worries. Whatever bump Obama's gettig will be gone by saturday or sunday. What's more, Studies show that disasters like this can cost the President in charge at the time a couple of percentage points in the following election. Done ask me, but voters blame the guy in charge.

Hedge Fund Hal

Romney will be President next Wednesday, despite Christie not because of him, but infortunately Christie will still be the same big fat jackass....

proud American

No he won't The President will still be the president, next Wednesday. I dare you to look that up

T-S

Once Obama is reelected, dear old Hal will start on 2016. Are you all ready for that?

From soup kitchen fraud to canned-food fraud. Where does it end with these criminals?

Hedge Fund Hal

T-S and the proud amurrican must surely be now writing off a popular vote victory for Barry, with last night even the NPR poll showing Romney ahead 48/47 ,and are now convincing themselves that their once vaunted "electoral college firewall" will somehow hold. Good luck with that. None of their fellow "snide tribe" members here on Blatherwatch, as well as themselves, even gave the possibility of losing the popular vote to that "Mormon dweeb" a second thought, back in their confident, halcyon days of early summer. These were days of smug outdoor cocktail parties, where they regaled each other with tales of dog roofracking, eating KFC chicken woth a knife and fork after cutting off the skin, and other supposed examples of "Mittens"' droll, declasse crudities.

Republicans try to hide non-partisan report showing tax breaks to the rich do nothing to benefit the economy or create jobs but do increase the income polarity between the top and the bottom.
Congressional Research Service Report On Tax Cuts For Wealthy Suppressed By GOP

Hardly news to most of us.

KS blathers

That's remedial math claptrap. The top 1% income earners make about 17% and pay about 37% of the total tax revenue. However, I will argue that the tax code must be scrapped and flattened, but the lib progs would never go for that.

The alternative by the left to change this is more income redistribution - screw that pinko garbage. It is already being done a lot and should be reduced in order to help our economy, but simple minded leftists like you could never wrap their brains around it, because it goes against your religious doctrine of leftism..

Happy reading...

Hedge Fund Hal

oh boy, even Obama lapdog Morning Joe on MSNBC getting a little uppity with Obama, as he asked him about Benghazi, concerning whether help was denied to the people under attack, i guess earlier this morning. Obama replied with his robotic, now laughable and transparently mendacious stonewall answer, "that's what we're going to find out, after a thorough investigation. Dude, please. I know you think we're stupid , but this is a real insult to our intelligence. It's coming up on 2 months since the four deaths . You KNOW what happened by now, and everyone with a pulse knows that.

proud American

Our President is a great man, Chris Christie said so

Hedge Fund Hal

Realclearpolitica polling average shows the race tied at 47% with Obama getting a .3 advantage. There is a bogus National Journal poll in the RCP average that has been there for several days. It is an obvious outlier and a flawed poll, with Obama up 5 points over Romney. No credible analyst believes that. Take out that bogus poll, and Romney is slightly ahead in the RCP average 47.4 to 47.2. In some of the polls in the average Obama has obtained a squeaker one point lead by some of Romneys support going back into the undecided column, not by Obama's numbers going up. Take out the bogus NJ poll, and in none of the 9 polls left does Obama reach 50%. This is one of those years where one poll got it right, in my opinion, and tht poll is Gallup which still shows the 5 point Romney lead. Gallups numbers are confirmed with the numbers showing up in early voting in Pew and Gallup. I Think Obama is getting his maximum Hurrican Sandy bump today and this bump will be gone by Monday if not before.

Chris Christie Praises Obama’s Hurricane Response: ‘I Cannot Thank The President Enough’

proud American

Earlier this week, Governor Christie called the president's handling of the Hurricane Sandy "outstanding." At a press conference with President Obama yesterday, Governor Christie said: "It's really important to have the president of the United States here.

In response, conservative talk-show host Rush Limbaugh called Governor Christie "fat" and "a fool." It was an odd insult coming from Limbaugh who, for decades, was overweight as well.

Our October surprise is working

KS blathers

The October surprise is in your mouth !

Chris Christie is feeling the heat from Corey Booker for the pending NJ Governor election in 2013. I chalk this up to campaigning, but Christie needs to deal with reality over the rest of the nation before Tuesday, or I may be questioning his loyalty to Romney.

If Romney loses, I would blame one person more than anyone else - Newt Gingrich for his scathing lies he told about Romney during the primary campaign which provided ammo for the Obama camapaign - who are full of liars, parasites and neo-coms.

proud American

"or I may be questioning his loyalty to Romney." Maybe Christie is acting like a politician for a change and doesn't need to show loyalty.
