RINO Mittens Romney--Don't Defund Obamacare

This is why Mittens "Romneycare" Romney not only was a bad candidate for the GOP to run last year, and why he lost an election that should have been easily won (Washington Times).

Mitt Romney, the 2012 GOP presidential nominee, doesn’t support the breakaway group of conservatives who are open to forcing a government shutdown to cut off funding for Obamacare.

Speaking at a fundraiser in New Hampshire for the state GOP in Wolfeboro, Mr. Romney said he wants to get rid of Obamacare and “stripping it of funds has appeal.”

“But we need to exercise great care about any talk of shutting down government,” Mr. Romney said at a fundraiser in New Hampshire for the state’s Republican Party, according to prepared remarks. “What would come next when soldiers aren’t paid, when seniors fear for their Medicare and Social Security, and when the FBI is off duty?”

The former Massachusetts governor said that the GOP has better options for removing Mr. Obama’s health care law.

“I’m afraid that in the final analysis, Obamacare would get its funding, our party would suffer in the next elections, and the people of the nation would not be happy,” he said. “I think there are better ways to remove Obamacare.”

Sen. Mike Lee of Utah is leading an effort on Capitol Hill that calls on lawmakers to shutdown the government before they support a spending proposal that includes funds for Obamacare.
You say there's better options than defunding Obamacare.  Well, name them, Mittens. What are they?  This is what's wrong with RINOs. They're always attacking conservatives for being willing to stand for something, but the RINOs never offer a solution.  Because they want big government as well, but just not as big as what the libs want.

Go back to the last quote from Mittens above and the first two words "I'm afraid." This is why Mitt Romney lost the election and why melting ice is more exciting that the GOP right now.  Because it is a party whose last two Presidential candidates and party leadership can be defined in one word--timid.

Are Nancy Pelosi or "Dingy" Harry Reid "timid?" No!  They come across as soft spoken, but vicious. Look at our leaders. McConnell is a guy who looks like he's about to fall asleep. Boehner is a crybaby lush, and Mittens Romney has about as much excitement as algore.

This is why Republicans will not win elections if they do not stand for something, and appear timid for the fear of being "too confrontational."  That didn't stop Ronald Reagan 30 years ago, from calling the Soviet Union an "evil empire" or telling Gorbachev "Tear down this wall," even when advisors were telling him not to say that.

That's leadership, having the backbone to call a spade a spade.  The Republican Party (with the exception of Cruz, Lee, Rand Paul, Sarah Palin) is content with acting like George McFly, letting Biff and his buddies kick him around in the high school hallway.

CPAC 2013 Warmly Receives Mitt Romney

"I reject pessimism."

Former Massachusetts Governor and unsuccessful 2012 GOP Presidential Candidate Mitt Romney received a warm, rousing welcome from a packed house at CPAC 2013 Friday afternoon, despite his defeat against Richard Milhous Obama last November.

Romney was introduced by South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley, who was one of the first Tea Party endorsed governors to endorse him during the GOP primary.

For his role as a former governor, Romney said the key to rejuvenating and rebounding is to look at the successes of 30 Republican governors across the country who have given their states leadership that has been lacking nationally.

In rejecting pessimism, Romney said he and his wife, Ann, were inspired during their travels during the 2012 campaign as they met people who inspired them, in how they innovated during hard times, or came to America, as one escapee of Vietnam did, to rise from a taxi driver to UN ambassador.

Romney did not address future plans, but said he would be a co-worker along other conservatives to work toward greater success in the future.

It's only unfortunate that he was unable to apply that passion to defeating Obama last November.

When A Democrat Pollster Makes More Sense Than Ann Coulter

Some people cannot ever admit they were wrong.

A lot of us who didn't support Mitt Romney in the primaries, because we'd questioned the whole "most electable" narrative would have been willing to admit we were wrong, if he'd been elected over Richard Milhous Obama, and if he'd done a good job as President. That is, despite the fact he's lost more elections than he won, and he did not have a track record of being a conservative.

But Ann Coulter cannot admit she was wrong.

How can she? She couldn't explain to me at CPAC 2012 why she'd gone from saying (the year before) he'd lose if he was the nominee to being a "true believer."  Now, she's beclowning herself after she and all the others who used the "electability" argument solely to promote Romney were proven wrong.  Somehow, Romney is more superior in her mind to Ronald Reagan, (Daily Caller).  To which The Great One, Mark Levin responded:
Really Ann? You mean Romney's one debate bests Reagan's decades of advocacy for conservatism, his battles with the Republican establishment, and his building a conservative movement? Fact is Romney has done nothing for conservatism. I repeat, nothing. No leadership. No grassroots efforts. No major policy initiatives. Nothing. Reagan won two landslides. Romney won nothing. Cherry-picking facts Ann, in some strange cult-like obsession, fools no one. Same with your cheerleading for Chris Christie.
Pat Caddell, the Democrat pollster who worked for Carter's losing 1980 campaign, shows why even a Democrat makes more sense than alleged conservative Coulter in looking at why Romney lost (
Speaking at The David Horowitz Freedom Center's "Restoration Weekend" in Florida on November 16, Pat Caddell indicted what he called the Republican "consultant-lobbyist-establishment" complex for losing a presidential campaign in 2012 President Barack Obama had no business winning.
“No presidential campaign should be run by consultants,” Caddell said. “They should be run by people who are committed to the candidate and not into making big money.”
Caddell, the former Jimmy Carter adviser who consulted on the "Hope and the Change" movie that profiled disaffected Obama 2008 voters who were not going to vote for him in 2012, warned Republicans that the consultant-lobbyist-establishment complex may threaten to take the party into oblivion if not marginalized.
The Romney campaign, Caddell said, was driven be establishment consultants and was a failure of mechanics and message.
“But most of all, it was a failure of imagination,” Caddell said. ““It was the single worst campaign in modern history of a challenger who had a chance to win ... and that’s the truth and nothing can take away from that.”
Caddell said “Republicans never attempted to put a frame around the national election” because “the people who run the messaging in the Republican party and their consultants refused to do it.” 
...Too often, Caddell said the Republican consultant-lobbyist-establishment complex ignores anything that could be effective if it does not allow them to profit.
For instance, even though a Frank Luntz focus group found that the “Hope and the Change” movie was the most effective way for Republicans to appeal to independent voters, Caddell accused the Republican “consultant-lobbyist-establishment complex” of not utilizing the film because “that communication didn’t fit” in their conventional plans to make the consultant class wealthy.
Caddell said Republicans have to go away from a bureaucratic, top-down approach to messaging and outreach and be more imaginative in the future if they do not want to go the way of the Whigs. He said Republicans have been so poor on combating narratives and framing their own messages that minorities -- like Asians -- voted overwhelmingly for Obama despite sharing conservative values because they think Republicans "do not care about minorities."
He said the Republican party needed to be more imaginative -- like promoting education reform against teachers unions as the new battle for civil rights and running against corruption in Washington, which a Breitbart News/Judicial Watch Election Night poll found 85% of voters were concerned about.
“Why are Republicans not the anti-establishment party?,” Caddell asked.
Caddell emphasized a “narrative is a story” that comes over a period of time and “not just a single message.”
He cited Ronald Reagan as someone who knew how to speak to Democrats and “ordinary and common” Americans and bring them over to his side because Reagan had been one of them and came from regular Americans and shared their experiences.
“That is a quality that has been missing a long time in a search for alternative candidate," Caddell said, in reference to Reagan's ability to resonate with blue collar Americans.
He's right. That was the key to Reagan's electoral success.  It wasn't because Reagan was a "cult of personality" figure. It was because Reagan had respect for the everyday American citizen, those who "make the country work." I noted earlier how Reagan warned the GOP could not limit itself to the "country club, big business image" it had, and in many ways went back to with the first George Bush Presidency (1989-1992).
But I guess it's hard to understand conservatism and making it relate to Americans of all backgrounds when all that motivates you is the next book you can sell, huh Ann?

Mourning For America...Naming & Shaming, Time To Pause, Reflect & Refresh

After the shocking and disappointing results of last night's Presidential election, I saw a few people on Twitter make the comment that "for the first time in their lives, they were ashamed of their country," a play on Moochelle Obama's "first time I've been proud of my country" statement.

I could never be ashamed of the America I was born into, that was the "Shining City on a Hill," a beacon of freedom to the those who yearned to be free, whose Constitution and way of life a grandfather I never knew gave his life for during World War II.

I am, however, ashamed of what America has now become with the re-election of the most corrupt, failed Presidencies in American history, that of Richard Milhous Obama. A majority of voters willing to give up their liberties for the security of "gimmies' that half the population takes, paid for by the other half of us who are told we must sacrifice more. Their leaders (Obama, "Dingy" Harry Reid, David Axlerod, Debbie Wasserman-Schultz) are shrill, angry, mean voices who feed on the victim mentality, shun self-sufficiency, and keep the victim class in line by fear that their goodies will be taken away.

For those who followed this blog during the GOP Primaries, I considered Mitt Romney an unacceptable choice. His John Kerryesque flip-flops, lack of electoral success, Romney-care, and repudiation of the Reagan Revolution were unacceptable. Nevertheless, he was chosen (like Bob Dole and John McLame before him) as the "next in line" candidate by the GOP Country Club establishment. I toyed with the idea of sitting out this year's election, should he become the nominee (as some fellow conservatives contemplated). Nevertheless, when the illegal executive orders, Obamacare decision, and "executive privilege" during the "Fast & Furious" scandal came down from the Regime, I loved this nation too much to sit by and let Obama continue his "fundamental transformation" of it. Romney added more promise after the selection of Paul Ryan as his running mate. The energy later that day in Northern Virginia was exciting, and gave a false sense of hope that Obama would be a one-term President.

My argument isn't with Mitt Romney the person. His business success, charity and compassion for his fellow man are admirable, as is the love for his wife and family. Instead, Romney turned out to be everything we feared. A squishy moderate who let his opponents define him, in many cases with lies, slander, and vicious personal attacks. While he had more passion that the putrid John McLame, he was just as willing to be more vicious to his conservative rivals (Rick Perry, Newt Gingrich, Rick Santorum), than he was to Obama.  He was uncomfortable with being a conservative, because he was never really one, even a "severely conservative" one.
The fault for Romney's nomination lies with the GOP establishment who anointed him as the front-runner even before the McLame Campaign was defeated in 2008. The way the Romney camp and GOP advisers anonymously attacked VP nominee Sarah Palin, the closest thing to a unifying Reagan-style conservative we've seen in years, was disgusting and unforgivable. Even back in 2008, the GOP elite wanted another Bob Dole and John McCain, and we got the "it's his turn" candidate in 2012 named Mitt Romney. Even worse, is that Romney lost with a vote total less than McLame's horrible candidacy.

Angry? Yes I am and I'm not going to mince words and be nice right now.  This was an election that by all rights we should have run. So I'm willing to name and shame some "conservatives" and Republicans who are partially responsible for how we got to Obama's second term.
Ann Coulter - One year after saying Mitt Romney was a loser at CPAC, Coulter went off at the 2012 gathering about how Romney was our only hope because he was "square."  At one point, I thought she was about to join in a sing-a-long of "Hip To Be Square" with Huey Lewis during her speech. Romney was her fallback, since her Tony Soprano look-a-like boyfriend from New Jersey took a pass.  Coulter should be relegated to a McDonalds drive through uttering the lines "would you like fries with that?"

Chris "Krispy Kreme" Christie - His embrace of Obama for the Hurricane Sandy photo op, and drooling like a little boy over his chat with the overrated Bruce Springsteen was sickening, while acting like he didn't care if Romney came to visit New Jersey after the storm. Keep in mind Christie was one of Romney's first big endorsers, which proves the only thing bigger than Christie's waist size is his ego.

Karl Rove and Dick "The Toesucker" Morris - Stay away from these two clowns when it comes to polls. Rove was a pro-Romney backer, even joining in the Newt pile-on in Florida.  Both of their polling numbers were way off.

I would also add to my "name 'em and shame 'em" list David Frum, Jon Huntsman, John McLame, as well as Obama's second debate partner Candy Crowley, SeeBS 60 Minutes, Chris Matthews, the racist Toure and other hosts at MSNBC, the Washington ComPost and L.A. Slimes for still holding on to the Khalid Rashidi video.

I have to say I'm not enthused by the GOP "leadership" in the Congress. John "Crybaby" Boehner is already signaling he's ready to roll over and play dead for Obama. The dickless wonder in the Senate, Mitch McConnell, is willing to do the same for his friend and colleague, the Dingy one, Harry Reid.

What will make this loss even more damaging is that Obama will have the chance to turn the Supreme Court into an activist, liberal court in the next four years, and the GOP Senate minority won't even try to put up a fight.

Oh, and all those who are saying Obama will be impeached over Benghazi, forget it. Don't get me wrong, he should be. What happened in Benghazi was a disgrace and a crime, far worse than a third-rate burglary at a DC hotel, and worse than a President covering up getting a blow job from an intern. The GOP leadership will be too afraid to impeach, the activist media will cover for Obama, and a Democrat Senate will never remove.

To the four who were killed on 9/11/2012 and to their families, I am deeply sorry. This nation let you down on that day and yesterday as well.

Other reactions to Tuesday's disaster:

Robert Stacy McCain: On the Encroaching Gloom: ‘We Are Permanently and Irretrievably Screwed’

Here’s the thing: Conservatives warned that the re-election of Obama would have disastrous and irreparable consequences. In the wake of what happened, it ill behooves us to say now that the future offers anything but a descent into squalor and despair. If our arguments before Election Day were correct, we can scarcely enhance our credibility after Election Day by pretending that we can prevent what we previously said would be inevitable. The re-election of Obama heralds the advent of the post-American era.

Lee Rodgers, former morning host at KSFO-AM:

Those with some knowledge of historical references will see in Obama's victory a realization of the words attributed (correctly or not) to an 18th Century Scotsman named Alexander Tytler:
"A democracy is always temporary in nature; it simply cannot exist as a permanent form of government. A democracy will continue to exist up until the time that voters discover that they can vote themselves generous gifts from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates who promise the most benefits from the public treasury, with the result that every democracy will finally collapse due to loose fiscal policy, which is always followed by a dictatorship. The average age of the world's greatest civilizations from the beginning of history has been about 200 years. During those 200 years, these nations always progressed through the following sequence:
* From bondage to spiritual faith;
* From spiritual faith to great courage;
* From courage to liberty;
* From liberty to abundance;
* From abundance to selfishness;
* From selfishness to complacency;
* From complacency to apathy;
* From apathy to dependence;
* From dependence back into bondage."

There is no longer doubt that this nation has reached the tipping point predicted by many of us. The point at which half the population pays no income taxes and basically lives off the work and income of people whose earnings are expropriated by a corrupt government.
A majority of voters demonstrated yesterday that they prefer the honeyed lies of a man whose personal history and governing practices are a patchwork of falsehoods and whose administration of the nation's affairs is manifestly a failure.
The America that was ... is gone. Probably irretrievably, as the culture of dependency continues to grow. Welcome to the USSA -- the United Socialist States of America. Or, as some have already succinctly put it, "USA ... RIP."

I’m tired.
I’m tired of the Establishment vs. Tea Party wars. I’m tired of Republicans still treating tea partiers like idiots for being outraged. The tea party protested Mitt. We fought his nomination. Then we rallied around him anyway, and we still lost. If you don’t get why that’s infuriating and disheartening and why people need to be angry about it, fine. Berating them is the opposite of helpful and encourages the indignation. If Republicans can’t win WITH the Tea Party, what makes you think you have a snowball’s chance in hell without us?
I spent the primary being told to shut up, you’ll fall in line anyway. I said I wouldn’t, but I did. I thought I was doing the right thing. Obama was too scary, and Mitt is a good man. What did it get me? The most bitter loss I could have imagined, because everyone actually thought we had a chance this time. Mitt was the electable one, after all. Surely the GOP brain trust had info we didn’t and Romney was really the smart choice, despite what the grassroots told them.
I’m tired of the circular firing squads (which “establishment” types are EVERY BIT as guilty of). The self-flagellation and naval gazing are inevitable, and we all need a break. I know that I, for one, am completely burned out and broken hearted. There’s no way I’m going to be effective without a recovery period.
OK, I admit I had to do some "circular firing squad" above, I needed to blow off steam. I'm tired, terribly disappointed and I need a break too.

"Are You Better Off Than You Were Four Years Ago?...This Country Doesn’t Have To Be In The Shape That It Is In"

The following video is from the 1980 Presidential Debate, held one week before Jimmy Carter was defeated by Ronald Reagan, in what was one of the most important elections of the 20th Century. Some who are voting tomorrow weren't alive to hear these words. I was 11 years old and remember sitting up to watch this debate. This closing statement was what cemented Carter's defeat.

Keep these words in mind as you vote tomorrow. They are just as, or even more important tomorrow as they were when they were said 32 years ago.

Next Tuesday is Election Day. Next Tuesday all of you will go to the polls, will stand there in the polling place and make a decision. I think when you make that decision, it might be well if you would ask yourself, are you better off than you were four years ago? Is it easier for you to go and buy things in the stores than it was four years ago? Is there more or less unemployment in the country than there was four years ago? Is America as respected throughout the world as it was? Do you feel that our security is as safe, that we’re as strong as we were four years ago? And if you answer all of those questions yes, why then, I think your choice is very obvious as to whom you will vote for. If you don’t agree, if you don’t think that this course that we’ve been on for the last four years is what you would like to see us follow for the next four, then I could suggest another choice that you have.
This country doesn’t have to be in the shape that it is in. We do not have to go on sharing in scarcity with the country getting worse off, with unemployment growing. We talk about the unemployment lines. If all of the unemployed today were in a single line allowing two feet for each of them, that line would reach from New York City to Los Angeles, California. All of this can be cured and all of it can be solved. I have not had the experience the President has had in holding that office, but I think in being Governor of California, the most populous state in the Union – if it were a nation, it would be the seventh-ranking economic power in the world – I, too, had some lonely moments and decisions to make.
I know that the economic program that I have proposed for this nation in the next few years can resolve many of the problems that trouble us today. I know because we did it there. We cut the cost – the increased cost of government – in half over the eight years. We returned $5.7 billion in tax rebates, credits and cuts to our people. We, as I have said earlier, fell below the national average in inflation when we did that. And I know that we did give back authority and autonomy to the people.
I would like to have a crusade today, and I would like to lead that crusade with your help. And it would be one to take Government off the backs of the great people of this country, and turn you loose again to do those things that I know you can do so well, because you did them and made this country great. Thank you.

Tomorrow's election isn't about just two men, two parties, or about you and I. It is about the future of this nation. Are we willing to stand up for the principles we were founded upon?  Are we still willing to be that "Shining City Upon a Hill" as a beacon of freedom to the rest of the world?  Are we still willing to believe that it is free people, who choose their own destiny, can accomplish anything and build their own dreams and destinies?

I know the "Are You Better Off" argument is a good one, and another reason why the above video clip is important, but I wanted to stress that one line, because it is the crux of where we are at today.

This country doesn’t have to be in the shape that it is in. We do not have to go on sharing in scarcity with the country getting worse off.....

Why? Because too many people, especially media pundits, are trying to make you and I believe that the last four years and all that has followed in Obama's rule (high unemployment, underemployment, less take home pay, higher gas prices, higher health insurance cost, higher debt, less freedom, less opportunity, et al) is the "new normal"....and that we must get used to it.

Along with that comes a nation that has become more polarized by race, gender, sexual orientation, political beliefs, religion...a far cry from what the Great Healer Obama promised in 2008 when he talked of "healing the political divide". Those lofty words have given way four years later to the real angry soft despot who talks to his followers about voting out of "revenge." How his political advisor, the mean-faced Valerie Jarret, vows "payback" to political opponents and to allies like Israel, whom they blow off while making secret negotiations with a terrorist, rogue nation like Iran.

Is this the "transformed" America you want to live in? Where we have to do with less opportunity, less freedom, and "share in scarcity," but also where those who disagree with the current regime are seen as bigger enemies than Islamic terrorists attacked this nation on the same day 11 years apart, and who would like to wipe out the State of Israel.

That's not the America I want to live in, nor do I want to see passed down to the next generation.

Tomorrow is the day when we can change the course where we have been on. Obama must be defeated, but voting Third Party or staying home apathetic will only keep Obama's Reign of Thuggery intact for four more years. If you are still undecided, but love this nation and worried about the road we've been on, I ask you to join me in voting for Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan. It is the only way to defeat Obama and put America back on course. To do that, also, don't forget that we need to elect conservatives to the Senate as well, and end the obstructionism of "Dingy" Harry Reid.  That, as well as staying engaged and fighting for commonsense conservatism while they are in office, will ensure that we can fundamentally return America to it's founding principles.

This isn't just any election. It is one I regard as a national emergency.  As Mark Levin would say, it's a battle of Liberty vs. Tyranny.

Our future and that of the next generation, depends on what we do tomorrow.

If You Want The Straight Scoop About How Ohio Is Leaning...

Go read this and several other posts at The Other McCain. He and Ali Akbar (who leads the National Bloggers Club) have been on the ground there in Ohio and have reported the enthusiasm for the Romney Ryan ticket.

Here's a photo from last night's 30,000 attendance rally in West Chester that tells the story.

Click here for more photos, and also read the following for more on the Straight Scoop on how Ohio should play out on November 6.

  • Nov. 2: FOUR MORE DAYS: Kid Rock Tonight in the Only County That Matters
  • Nov 1: Fred Thompson Makes News With Benghazi Comments at AFP Event
  • Oct. 30: Mark October 30 on Your Calendar: Democrat Panic Hits Pandemic Stage
  • Oct. 29: FROM OHIO: Schedule Scrambled; Obama, Romney Cancel Campaign Events
  • Oct. 27: STORM CANCELS ROMNEY VIRGINIA EVENTS; OHIO, HERE WE COME UPDATE: BOOM! Mitt Romney Endorsed by Des Moines Register
  • New Romney Ad Smacks Down Thug-in-Chief's "Voting Is Best Revenge" Comment

    You'll recall yesterday that President Richard Milhous Obama, whose political career started out of the corrupt, thuggish political sewer of Chicago, told his followers yesterday "voting is the best revenge."

    Mitt Romney threw Obama's divisive thuggery back at him in his massive speech in Ohio last night. It's also part of his new campaign ad (video via Weasel Zippers).

    Says a lot about a President who attacked Romney for his 47 percent comment, yet wants "revenge" on a majority of this nation who are opposed to his far-Left, extreme socialism and Saul Alinsky tactics.

    It's fair to say that America can do without the Chicago thuggery of Obama for the next four years.

    President Civility Obama: "That's (Mitt Romney) A Bullshitter"

    Remember back in 2011, after the tragic shooting of Rep. Gabby Giffords and 13 others, with six people killed, President Richard Milhous Obama took the opportunity to lecture the nation about "civility" after it was (falsely) alleged by liberals in the media and politics that Giffords was targeted by the Tea Party and Sarah Palin.

    "At a time when our discourse has become so sharply polarized," he said, "at a time when we are far too eager to lay the blame for all that ails the world at the feet of those who happen to think differently than we do — it's important for us to pause for a moment and make sure that we are talking with each other in a way that heals, not a way that wounds."

    We know how well Democrats took those words to heart last year.

    Over a year later, Obama showed just how uncivil he is in regards to his Republican opponent, Mitt Romney, in responding to well wishes from the six year old child of an editor (Business Insider).

    "We arrived at the Oval Office for our 45-minute interview ... on the morning of October 11th. ... As we left the Oval Office, executive editor Eric Bates told Obama that he had asked his six-year-old if there was anything she wanted him to say to the president. ... [S]he said, 'Tell him: You can do it.' Obama grinned. ... 'You know, kids have good instincts,' Obama offered. 'They look at the other guy and say, 'Well, that's a bullshitter, I can tell.'"

    Besides his lack of civility while lecturing for more of it, Obama the Jerk likes to dish out the trash talk but can't take it when it's thrown back at him.  Remember when Mark Halperin said Obama acted like a (rhymes with Rick) last year?  Well, Jay Carney called MSNBC and complained for President Thin-Skinned.
    "The comment that was made was inappropriate," Carney said. "It would be inappropriate to say about a president of either party."
    But it's OK for Obama the classless jerk to call his opponent a foul name?

    CAUTION! Let's Not Get Cocky, But Things Are Looking Very Bad For Obama

    Keep in mind, we still have 19 days before November 6. Still, there's a lot of indicators that are pointing in one direction: the walls are beginning to crack on Obama's re-election campaign.
    First sign. The Gallup poll today has Romney up one point from yesterday: 52 to 45 percent.  That number is very significant! Karl Rove pointed out yesterday that no Presidential candidate this late in October has lost with a poll number like Romney has.
    Second: Kevin DuJan at HillBuzz wrote how Obama is planning his Election Night festivities at McCormick Place in Chicago, NOT at Grant Park, as he did in 2008 and that drew over 200,000 people.

    McCormick Place, Chicago, IL...where Obama is having his Nov. 6th Festivities
    I’ve suspected for some time that Obama was going to plan for a concession speech on November 6th, but last night final confirmation arrived in the form of leaked news that the Obama election night event is being staged in private McCormick Place, not a big public setting like Grant Park. 
    Let me put this as clearly as I can because it’s crucial: if Democrats really thought Barack Obama was going to be reelected, then they would have planned a massive rally in Grant Park again; the fact this is not happening is proof that, despite what you hear coming out of the Ministry of Truth that is the national media, the Democrats really do not expect Obama to win this election. Campaign operatives in Chicago are, thus, making appropriate preparations for his imminent defeat. 
    Instead of Grant Park, Obama’s apparently going to have his election night event at McCormick Place…the convention center here in Chicago. 
    Let me explain a few things about McCormick Place that you could intimate from the photo above: 
    * it’s separated from the City by highways and is hard to reach by anyone traveling on foot from the various “El” trains that service Chicago…which indicates this event is not intended for throngs of Obama supporters. 
    * there are no buses that readily service McCormick Place like they do Grant Park…so once again, this event is not being planned for the public to come and celebrate with Obama. 
    * McCormick Place is completely indoors and is a venue that Democrats can easily control in terms of the camera angles and stagecraft of the event…which is a big deal because losing campaigns choose small, isolated places to hold concession speeches while winning candidates are feted on election night in, well, places like Grant Park. 
    I was an event planner here in Chicago for several years before the 2008 presidential campaign. I planned events in McCormick Place for various trade shows; it’s a building designed with flexibility for downsizing an audience if the need suddenly arises so that the participants do not feel lost in too much extra space. There are modular walls that achieve this, with dividers capable of cutting a space in half…and then in half again…if that’s what needs to be done to make a sparse crowd seem bigger for cameras. 
    Despite being within sight of the Museum Campus and Soldier Field, McCormick Place is a fortress-like island surrounded on most sides by freeways or railroad tracks (with the lake on the other side). This is where the G-8 summit was held, so the dignitaries could be isolated and kept as far away from the public as possible in downtown Chicago. Because the only realistic way of reaching McCormick Place is by taxi (or car, if people drive themselves) this is clearly not a place Obama would be holding an election night event if he really thought he was going to win the election. How on Earth would his throngs of supporters be able to reach him if he won and the event was held here of all places?
    What DuJan writes is about McCormick Place is true. I was there for work a few years ago. Convention centers, while being big buildings, are not built that way for one event, like a basketball arena. There's an expo center, tons of hallways, break out rooms, etc. Plus, compared to other conventions I've been at, hotels are usually close by, within walking distance. I stayed in a hotel close to Grant Park when I was in Chicago for business, and had to take a five to 10 minute shuttle ride to McCormick Place. I also remember how the Chicago Hilton had a big deal in their lobby, noting it was the base hotel for the 2008 Election Night festivities. Grant Park was close-by. McCormick is further away.
    Third: There's a report that the Obama campaign is pulling out of several "battleground" states like Florida, North Carolina, and here in the Commonwealth of Virginia, to mount a "last stand" in places like New Hampshire, Nevada, Iowa and Ohio.
    Fourth: It appears "Slick Willie" Clinton got his revenge for all the attacks on him and Hillary in 2008, being called a racist, and for Hillary taking the fall for what Obama was too cowardly to do (Washington Examiner  via Gateway Pundit.
    "Governor Romney's argument is, we're not fixed, so fire him and put me in," Clinton said, speaking to voters this afternoon. "It is true that we're not fixed," Clinton added. "When President Obama looked into the eyes of that man who said in the debate, 'I had so much hope four years ago and I don't now,' I thought he was going to cry, because he knows that its not fixed."
    Man, did you hear that!
    Finally, ask yourselves, is using "women in binders," and Big Bird against Mitt Romney enough to inspire people in a down economy, and after a terror attack that the Regime lied about, to re-elect him for another four years? Is that your plan for a second term?
    Like I said, let's not get cocky, but the only poll that matters is the one that is counted on November 6th 2012.

    Dale City, VA Romney Supporter's Home Burglarized. "Obama, Bitch!" Written On Living Room Wall

    Remember back in 2008, Richard Milhous Obama, the champion of civil discourse in politics said the following to his supporters.

    "I need you to go out and talk to your friends and talk to your neighbors. I want you to talk to them whether they are independent or whether they are Republican. I want you to argue with them and get in their face!"

    His supporters are doing more than that around the nation.

    On Wednesday, someone named Angela with the Prince William County, VA Republican Party, called into the Chris Plante Show on WMAL in Washington DC (podcast here, comes at 104.00 into the program). After informing Plante and listeners of a Tagg Romney event, she referred to a recent burglary of a woman's home in Dale City, VA. The woman had a Romney/Ryan sign in her front yard and burglars had broken into her home, and stolen electronics and jewelry. Before leaving, the burglars spray painted the words, "OBAMA, BITCH!" on her living room wall. Angela said a police report was made and she had sent a photo of the burglar's message to Plante.

    What happened in Dale City, VA isn't an isolated incident either. Attacks on Romney/Ryan yard signs, and "keying" cars with Romney bumper stickers have been reported across the country, with Obama supporters bragging on Twitter of their thuggeryPublic urination and smearing human feces has also occurred.

    Pat Dollard posted this video illustrating examples of this around the Charlottesville, VA area.

    Someone page lying Obama spokesweasels Stephanie Cutter and Debbie Wasserman-Schultz (Thunderlips) and ask them about this liberal incivility which they are silent about.

    Mitt Romney Foreign Policy Address: "Hope Is Not A Strategy"

    GOP Presidential nominee Mitt Romney gave an address on foreign policy at Virginia Military Institute in Lexington, VA, earlier today.

    Video below (via Nice Deb):

    Transcript here.

    Romney's speech had many specifics, if you view and read the transcript. Basically, he points to America's traditional role as a world leader, and how we are the hope of the world for free peoples and those who yearn for freedom.  Under Obama, free people and those who want freedom cannot depend on a "lead from behind" strategy. Romney specifically brought up the 2009 freedom demonstrations in Iran, and how Obama turned a cold shoulder to that uprising.

    The attacks of 9/11/2012 and the murder of Ambassador Stevens in Libya was addressed by Romney, who pointed out this was not a spontaneous uprising or the fault of a dumb YouTube video, but the work of radical Islamists.

    Failure was the word Romney used against the Obama foreign policy strategy. It is one that he needs to use repeatedly to describe the worst foreign policy president since Jimmy Carter.

    Why Are Obama & Libs More Concerned About Big Bird After Our Ambassador, Two Navy SEALS & Aide Are Killed?

    Eleven years after the act of war committed on American soil by Muslim terrorists, America was attacked again, as our embassies in Cairo, Egypt and Benghazi, Libya were attacked by al-Queda.

    In Libya, our ambassador, Chris Stevens, was sodomized and murdered, as were his aide and two US Navy SEALS, who died trying to defend the ambassador.  This was the first time since the Jimmy Carter malaise that a US ambassador was killed.  Obama gave an emotionless statement the next day before flying off to a campaign fundraiser in Las Vegas.

    The Obama Regime ignored warnings of the security risk in Libya, as well as requests for more security, instead blaming the terror attacks on a stupid YouTube video, and sent the authorities out to arrest the filmmaker.

    But the Regime's cover-up is falling apart. This weekend, it was revealed that a 16-member Special Forces team was recalled from Libya one month before the attack.

    But what issue is most important to Obama and his liberal lapdogs?

    Not going after the Islamofascist terrorists who attacked us on 9/11/2012.

    No, it's defending a big yellow muppet by the name of Big Bird (New York Slimes).

    On the conference call convened by aides in Denver and Chicago even as the candidates were still on stage, there was no debate in the Obama campaign about the debate. None of the advisers fooled themselves into thinking it was anything but a disaster. Instead, they scrambled for ways to recover. They resolved to go after Mr. Romney with a post-debate assault on his truthfulness. Ad makers were ordered to work all night to produce an attack ad. And they would seize on Mr. Romney’s vow to cut financing for Big Bird.
    Obama is even showing more anger about the cutting of Big Bird's corporate welfare than he is about the murder of Ambassador Stevens.

    Oh my, like Big Bird can't make it on his own.  If you look at the statistics, Sesame Street makes million of dollars in merchandising.  There's even an amusement park outside Philadelphia with high-priced admission fees. Yet Sesame Street are getting by by leeching off the taxpayers.

    So, why is a big yellow muppet a bigger concern to Obama than the murder of our ambassador & staff by Islamofascists?  Is corporate welfare for a liberal network that can survive without the money more important than the security of the American people?

    Ouch!!! Even Saturday Night Live Mocks Obama Debate & MSNBC Reaction

    You know you're losing it when a liberal bastion like The New Yorker mocks you, Clint Eastwood style.

    ...and when the notoriously liberal Saturday Night Live not only mocks your debate performance, but the over-the-top Obama worship of MSNBC (video via LA Times).

    FLASHBACK: Detroit Gathers For "Free Obama Money" #MittWasRight

    There are 47 percent of the people who will vote for the president no matter what. All right, there are 47 percent who are with him, who are dependent upon government, who believe that they are victims, who believe the government has a responsibility to care for them, who believe that they are entitled to health care, to food, to housing, to you-name-it. That that's an entitlement. And the government should give it to them. And they will vote for this president no matter what…These are people who pay no income tax.

    Mitt Romney
    May 2012

    Want more proof to how Mitt Romney was right in his comments that have the liberals panties in a wad?

    Flashback to Glenn Beck's TV show, this was around October 2009:

    New York Daily News:

    Scuffles erupted as several thousand Detroit residents jockeyed, pushed and shoved Wednesday to get free money being offered to only 3,500 of the city's recently or soon to be homeless.

    Several received medical treatment for fainting or exhaustion while frantically trying to obtain the applications for federal housing assistance. The long lines and short tempers highlighted the frustration and desperation that Detroit residents feel struggling through an economic nightmare.

    The line around Cobo Center, a downtown convention center, started forming well before daybreak. Anger flared within a few hours as more people sought out a dwindling number of applications for the program.

    The fact that Mitt Romney points out this dependency is supposed to be scandalous?

    Boy has the Democrat Party fallen from previous presidents.

    #RomneyIsRight In 2007, 38% Paid No Income Tax, Increased To 47% By 2010

    One fact that needs to be pointed out that illustrates how right Mitt Romney was in this media manufactured distraction from his video comments--dependency has grown under the Obama Regime.

    From April 2011

    As recently as 2007, 38 percent of households were classified by the IRS as “non-paying.” The recession, coupled with tax code changes, boosted that number to 47 percent last year. Indeed, the bottom 40 percent of U.S. households actually make a profit from the federal income tax — their tax credits exceed their liabilities — so they receive a check from the government, rather than having to write one. Such a trend line, if it continues, presents both an economic and moral dilemma.

    Food stamp participation has gone up 70 percent between the years 2007 and 2011.

    Isn't that what Richard Milhous Obama wants? Dependency? That's what he said (Gateway Pundit).

    Obama in 1998 - "I actually believe in redistribution"

    Remember how he told Joe the Plumber he wanted to "spread the wealth"?

    So Mitt Romney is right.

    Mitt Romney Nails It: Obama Voters Dependent On Government & Don't Pay Taxes

    Another distraction from Obama supporting Leftists, this time, from the commies at Mother Jones (via FreeRepublic).

    During a private fundraiser earlier this year, Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney told a small group of wealthy contributors what he truly thinks of all the voters who support President Barack Obama. He dismissed these Americans as freeloaders who pay no taxes, who don't assume responsibility for their lives, and who think government should take care of them. Fielding a question from a donor about how he could triumph in November, Romney replied:

    There are 47 percent of the people who will vote for the president no matter what. All right, there are 47 percent who are with him, who are dependent upon government, who believe that they are victims, who believe the government has a responsibility to care for them, who believe that they are entitled to health care, to food, to housing, to you-name-it. That that's an entitlement. And the government should give it to them. And they will vote for this president no matter what…These are people who pay no income tax.

    Romney went on: "[M]y job is is not to worry about those people. I'll never convince them they should take personal responsibility and care for their lives."

    So, I'm supposed to be angry at Mitt Romney for saying this? Sounds like he was pretty much on the mark, because there's a lot of Obama voters who openly expressed how they thought their Messiah would come to their aid and pay for their goodies.

    No, you know who's paying for your gas and mortgage? Those of us who work hard for our families, and have to pay more for food, shelter, expenses. Especially since we have to pay more in taxes so that it can be redistributed to Obama's supporters who are looking for a handout.

    I think these comments will help Mitt more than hurt him. Why do you think the Tea Party got big? People got tired of having to pay for their neighbors irresponsiblity and failure to read their loan paperwork. They got the bailouts, while those of us who work and play by the rules got stuck with the bill. Remember Rick Santelli's infamous Tea Party statement.

    SHAMEFUL! Obama Supporter Prevents Romney From Holding Moment of Silence For US Ambassador & Aides

    This is shameful, and a new low for liberal Obama supporters.

    Mitt Romney was in nearby Farifax, VA on Thursday and attempted to hold a moment of silence for murdered US Ambassador Chris Stevens and the three other Americans killed by jihadists when one liberal Obama supporter interrupted.

    If there's one thing I learned after 9/11/2001 from liberals in the Bay Area and around the nation, they don't want unity...except if you agree with them.

    One word of advice to Mitt, I'd have taken a sharper tone against this idiot at a time when everyone, regardless of political background, should be silent.

    Here's how you handle idiot liberal hecklers.

    One Romney supporter went Breitbart on the Obama Lapdog media, and served as an example for how we should go after the unofficial Obama PR hacks (Weekly Standard).

    "I think you guys are suck-ups," the woman said. "I think you guys got your embroidered kneepads from the White House, buddy. That's what I think."

    That's the way to tell them!

    A National Disgrace - Obama's Fecklessness In The Face Of Terror While Media Lapdogs Cover For Him

    What happened yesterday at our embassies yesterday in Egypt and Libya--the deadly attacks and the apologies to terrorists afterwards--should mark the end of the mistake known as the Obama Presidency, in the minds of sane voters.

    That remains to be seen, as the fecklessness of this failed President will be overlooked no doubt by mindless voters who only pull a lever by a "D" or those who will be swayed by Obama's media lapdogs who defend him whether he's right or wrong.

    Despite the media attacks on him, Mitt Romney was absolutely, spot on correct in his attacks on the Obama Regime for not showing consistency in our foreign policy and for apologizing to terrorists. Furthermore, Romney did an even better job against Obama's Media Lapdogs.

    This, while we find out the "media" was all huddled together beforehand, coordinating questions to attack Romney with (The Right Scoop with audio).

    UNIDENTIFIED REPORTER: …pointing out that the Republicans… *unintelligible* …Obama….

    CBS REPORTER: That’s the question.

    UNIDENTIFIED REPORTER: *unintelligible*

    CBS REPORTER: Yeah that’s the question. I would just say do you regret your question.

    UNIDENTIFIED REPORTER: Your question? Your statement?

    CBS REPORTER: I mean your statement. Not even the tone, because then he can go off on…

    UNIDENTIFIED REPORTER: And then if he does, if we can just follow up and say ‘but this morning your answer is continuing to sound…’ – *becomes unintelligble*

    CBS REPORTER: You can’t say that..


    CBS REPORTER: I’m just trying to make sure that we’re just talking about, no matter who he calls on we’re covered on the one question.

    UNIDENTIFIED REPORTER: Do you stand by your statement or regret your statement?

    Meanwhile, the media was less outraged in 2004 when the Frog-like John F'ing Kerry used a suicide bombing to attack President Bush, calling the Iraq War a "quagmire" simply because liberal Democrats never want to fight a war.  All that talk about "politics stopping at the water's edge" didn't mean much then?  Well, the Sally Field Diplomacy promoted by Kerry and Obama of making sure our enemies "like us, they really, really like us" paid off in spades yesterday, didn't it?

    Meanwhile, the empty chair who is President reads a statement, doesn't take any questions, and goes jetting off on our dime to Las Vegas for a two day fundraising trip. What is key is that one journalist asked Obama if the embassy attacks were an act of war, as "That One" turned his back and walked away. Frankly, I'm surprised this journalist wasn't attacked for "heckling" their celebrity President.

    If we had a real, honest to God objective media, they would be asking the following questions:

    Why didn't Obama see these attacks coming?

    Why is there no record of him attending his intelligence briefing meetings this past week. He's only attended 43 percent of the time. Why?

    How could Obama and Secretary of Hate Hillary Rotten Clinton say the Libyans were "carrying the ambassador to the hospital" when photos show him dead already, and he's being dragged by his armpits?

    Why was there no protection from US Marines at the embassy in Libya?

    Why the need to rush off to campaign fundraisers after a brutal attack on American assets?

    Why did Obama ignore the attack on the embassy in Egypt in his statement?

    Sorry media, such inept leadership from Richard Milhous Obama needs to be attacked. Another Presidential candidate did the same when it came to another weak, appeasing failure of a President.

    Keep in mind Obama embraced the so-called "Arab Spring," held talks with and given taxpayer money to the Muslim Brotherhood, and aided the Libyan rebels (affiliated with al-Queda) in overthrowing that Regime in an unconstitutional manner without approval for Congress.

    So, yesterdays attacks were Obama's chickens coming home to roooooost! Not only should he be held accountable for it, it needs to be the final reason he deserves to be kicked out of the White House on November 6.

    Will Listeners Of Classic Rock Be The New Swing Voters?

    For a ligher political fare on Friday, you hear alot about certain "demographics" who are labeled as "swing voters."

    Here's a new one, the "classic rock vote."

    Greg Kihn, classic rocker (remember him? The Breakup Song and Jeopardy) and disc jockey at KFOX in San Jose, has an interesting piece at his website.

    It looks like both political parties will be courting the CLASSIC ROCK VOTE this year. It was clear last night during Paul Ryan’s speech at the RNC when he made fun of Rommney’s music and said that the music on his iPod went from ACDC to Zep. I believe him. No reason to lie about that. Besides, it’s the music of our generation. The Classic Rock Demographic is perfect for both parties. The night before, Chris Christie mentioned listening to “Darkness At The Edge Of Town” while hanging out on the Jersey Shore when he was 19. He quoted Bruce Springsteen, even though to my knowledge Bruce is a liberal democrat. Will we hear from Bruce on the Christie thing? Will he demand to be removed from the man’s iPod? I don’t know.

    All I can say is that this year the CLASSIC ROCK VOTE will make a difference. So, it would be smart for either party to woo those Baby Boomers that love their Led Zep. That’s you and me, man. Suddenly everybody wants our approval. Enjoy it while you can.

    I read an interview where Obama revealed some of what is on his iPod- The Rolling Stones, Al Green, a lot of classic RandB, and some rap and hip-hop. He mentioned Lil Wayne and Nas. I don’t know who either of those guys are. This morning Chris and I tried to find a minute of Lil Wayne or the Nas to play on the air and we literally couldn’t find ONE 60 SECOND SOUND BITE THAT WASN’T full of profanities- the F word, the N word, raunchy sex, your name it. We couldn’t find one section that was playable. That’s incredible. Is the president really listening to Lil Wayne? Is this what they play on the radio nowdays? Is this what our kids are listening to? Holy crap! I would advise him to steer away from the gangsta rap because it’s undignified for a president to be grooving to such thugish music. I would suggest some jazz and classical. Maybe a little Ray Charles too.

    (C)Rapper Nas....and Obama likes this guy's "music"? 
    With the Democratic Convention coming up, I’ll bet we hear alot more about what the candidates are listening to. Some of it will be real, some not.

    Now that this has become an issue, we should be hearing from Joe Biden soon. God knows what’s on HIS iPod. Maybe he’s still got a boom box. Or 8 Tracks. It’s a world gone mad.

    #Civility - Democrat Delegate Says of Romney "I Would Like To Kill Him" (VIDEO)

    This is the hateful face of liberalism - angry, mean and vicious (The Blaze).

    During the second day of the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, TheBlaze took to Time Warner Cable Arena to speak with delegates about the most pressing issues of our time. Most of those interviewed were good sports, answering questions about the trajectory of the country under Obama, the Affordable Care Act and even Socialism.

    One of our conversations took an unexpected turn, however, when we asked New York delegate Julia Rodriguez about her views on the direction of the country. Rodriguez promptly shouted that she would, in fact, like to “kill” Mitt Romney.

    So, where is the "civility" that Richard Milhous Obama has lectured the nation about?
