Romney Sums Up Why He Should Win (Open Thread)

© Miri WTPOTUS October 18, 2012

In response to Barack Obama’s claims, during the recent debate, that he has helped the economy over the past four years, Governor Mitt Romney delineated exactly why this president has failed and must be replaced.

Romney  explained:

[emphasis added to all quotes]

I think you know better. I think you know that these last four years haven’t been so good as the president just described and that you don’t feel like you’re confident that the next four years are going to be much better either. I can tell you that if you were to elect President Obama, you know what you’re going to get. You’re going to get a repeat of the last four years. We just can’t afford four more years like the last four years.

He said that by now we’d have unemployment at 5.4 percent. The difference between where it is and 5.4 percent is 9 million Americans without work. I wasn’t the one that said 5.4 percent. This was the president’s plan. Didn’t get there.

He said he would have by now put forward a plan to reform Medicare and Social Security, because he pointed out they’re on the road to bankruptcy. He would reform them. He’d get that done. He hasn’t even made a proposal on either one.

He said in his first year he’d put out an immigration plan that would deal with our immigration challenges. Didn’t even file it.

This is a president who has not been able to do what he said he’d do. He said that he’d cut in half the deficit. He hasn’t done that either. In fact, he doubled it. He said that by now middle-income families would have a reduction in their health insurance premiums by $2,500 a year. It’s gone up by $2,500 a year. And if Obamacare is passed, or implemented — it’s already been passed — if it’s implemented fully, it’ll be another $2,500 on top.

The middle class is getting crushed under the policies of a president who has not understood what it takes to get the economy working again. He keeps saying, “Look, I’ve created 5 million jobs.” That’s after losing 5 million jobs. The entire record is such that the unemployment has not been reduced in this country. The unemployment, the number of people who are still looking for work, is still 23 million Americans. There are more people in poverty, one out of six people in poverty.

How about food stamps? When he took office, 32 million people were on food stamps. Today, 47 million people are on food stamps. How about the growth of the economy? It’s growing more slowly this year than last year, and more slowly last year than the year before.

The president wants to do well. I understand. But the policies he’s put in place from Obamacare to Dodd-Frank to his tax policies to his regulatory policies, these policies combined have not let this economy take off and grow like it could have.

You might say, “Well, you got an example of one that worked better?” Yeah, in the Reagan recession where unemployment hit 10.8 percent, between that period — the end of that recession and the equivalent of time to today, Ronald Reagan’s recovery created twice as many jobs as this president’s recovery. Five million jobs doesn’t even keep up with our population growth. And the only reason the unemployment rate seems a little lower today is because of all the people that have dropped out of the workforce.

The president has tried, but his policies haven’t worked. He’s great as a — as a — as a speaker and describing his plans and his vision. That’s wonderful, except we have a record to look at. And that record shows he just hasn’t been able to cut the deficit, to put in place reforms for Medicare and Social Security to preserve them, to get us the rising incomes we need. Median income is down $4,300 a family and 23 million Americans out of work. That’s what this election is about. It’s about who can get the middle class in this country a bright and prosperous future and assure our kids the kind of hope and optimism they deserve.

One thing that stands out, besides the brilliant indictment of Obama’s record, is that Romney respects us, the citizens of the United States of America.  Obama and his minions habitually claim that their problem is not with policy but with the difficulty of explaining policies to the citizens of the USA.  It’s a problem of education, given that We the People are so ignorant.  If only they could figure out how to talk down to us well enough so that we ignorant rubes would understand what they, the elite intelligentsia of this country, so easily comprehend.

Note that Romney says, “I think you know.”  By that very statement, he recognizes that We the People are intelligent enough to understand our experiences and to draw lines between cause and effect.  He also recognizes that all in the viewing audience, no matter their level of education, are inherently intelligent enough to comprehend what’s going on. Romney doesn’t talk down to us, nor does he brazenly lie to us as if we’re too stupid to recognize a lie when we hear one. 

Romney can add these new statistics to his indictment.  First:

Welfare spending has grown substantially over the past four years, reaching $746 billion in 2011 — or more than Social Security, basic defense spending or any other single chunk of the federal government — according to a new memo by the Congressional Research Service.

The steady rise in welfare spending, which covers more than 80 programs primarily designed to help low-income Americans, got a big boost from the 2009 stimulus and has grown, albeit somewhat more slowly, in 2010 and 2011. One reason is that more people are qualifying in the weak economy, but the federal government also has broadened eligibility so that more people qualify for programs.

Sen. Jeff Sessions, the ranking Republican on the Senate Budget Committee, who requested the Congressional Research Service report, said it underscores a fundamental shift in welfare, moving away from a Band-Aid and toward a more permanent crutch.

Remember that Obama has implemented an outreach program, in conjunction with the Mexican government, designed to enroll illegal aliens in the food stamp program, which has doubled since 2008Welfare is now the “single largest budget item,” amounting to an astounding $1.03 TRILLION.   With a trillion dollars, you can “buy” an awful lot of votes. Second:

Violent crimes … jumped 18 percent last year, the first rise in nearly 20 years, and property crimes rose for first time in a decade. …

The U.S. Bureau of Justice Statistics reported Wednesday that the increase in the number of violent crimes was the result of an upward swing in simple assaults, which rose 22 percent, from 4 million in 2010 to 5 million last year. The incidence of rape, sexual assault and robbery remained largely unchanged, as did serious violent crime involving weapons or injury.

Property crimes were up 11 percent in 2011, from 15.4 million in 2010 to 17 million, according to the bureau’s annual national crime victimization survey. Household burglaries rose 14 percent, from 3.2 million to 3.6 million. The number of thefts jumped by 10 percent, from 11.6 million to 12.8 million.

Surely the Obama economy can be blamed for this rise in crime.  Third:

In the wake of the Treasury Department’s newly released summary of federal spending for 2012, it’s now possible to detail just how profligate the Obama years have been.  Here’s the upshot:  Under Obama,  for every $7 we’ve had, we’ve spent nearly $11 (or, to be more exact, $10.95).  That’s like a family that makes $70,000 a year — and is already knee-deep in debt — blowing nearly $110,000 a year.

That story calls this the 7-Eleven Presidency.   How long would a 7-Eleven family survive in this world?

It’s apparent that if our country is to survive the next four years, we need to make a U-turn.

We need a president who will truly get the economy going, will truly care about 100% of the citizens of this country, will truly make us energy independent, and will truly get us out of debt, so that our country can once again prosper.

Our choice is clear. Romney is our only hope.  Romney is our only choice.  Like it or not, that’s the way it is.

The decision is ours, and We the People will have to live with the choice that we make in a few weeks.

May We the People choose wisely.

  1. If the GOP wins in a landslide, take control of House, Senate and WH, an inquiry should be made of the MSM to determine their rationale on poll samples and how they conduct the debates. If questions were given to Obama, then the public needs to know that and the channel discredited in public. Same goes to MSM poll takers. How can you claim one candidate is ahead by oversampling his party by 12 percent? Then find out what the motive is behind such malpractice. The poll company can either publicly admit incompetence or spill the beans that the client wanted to create news and not fact with skewed polls. All these issues affect public interest and consumer right to accurate info and not manipulation.

    Just from a Facebook sample (unscientific though it may be) I see a ton of potential voter fraud. Yes, I know a lot of self styled intellectual morons. They all disgust me. But I try to stay abreast of their idiocy without “defriending” them. Very, very difficult!

    • I’m sure there will be massive vote fraud. They cheat. They lie. It’s what they do and now, if Romney is 7-8 points ahead of Barry, they MUST go all out to steal it by hook or by crook, by any means necessary.

      • One thing that was discovered inadvertently by Repubs recently, on facebook, is that in this voter id state at the polls in a main city people showed their id at the door, not knowing (both parties) that this was not the way things were to be done. When the person got to the table they said their name (well, they said a name) and the person checked it off but the id was not compared to the list name. This is a city that Obama gave special treatment to after the election with lots of stimulus money for never opened, empty buildings, no jobs battery plants and a host of other enterprises. The unemployment figures were exaggerated and reported all over the nation as the hardest hit in the country; this being a city of only 50,000. Yeah, they were hit hard as we also experienced it but there were definitely a whole lot more places harder hit, and more recognizable names as well. The city also has something to do with the Apollo Group, which Glenn Beck went into very detailed explanations as to how they are connect/head up to all the other wily groups usurping the country, as well being the group responsible for actually conceiving and writing the initial health care bill. Anyways, the id’s will be matched to the names on the list as much as we Poll Inspectors can make it happen.

  4. Political author and researcher Trevor Loudon presents key findings from his extensive research — identifying President Obama’s inner circle of friends, socialist supporters, and the mentors who dramatically influenced his political perspective. His findings are eye-opening because the mainstream media has consistently refused to inform the American public about Barack Obama’s motivations and underlying ideology. With the approaching 2012 elections, it is critically important that voters have a clear understanding of what they can expect if he is re-elected.

    Mr. Loudon describes himself as, “… a political researcher from Christchurch, New Zealand. “I believe in freedom with responsibility, not freedom from responsibility. My ideal society is one in which government is confined to protecting its citizens from criminals and external enemies. I believe in working with all those who are moving in broadly the same direction.”

    Russia’s Nikita Khrushchev once threatened the USA with “We will bury you.” This victory would occur without firing a shot because the working class of America would become Communists and replace Capitalism. That prophecy is now being fulfilled by President Barack Obama, according to Mr. Loudon.

    According to Glenn Beck, “Trevor Loudon does the job that few in the media ever attempt. This eye-opening book is proof that one person really can make a difference, especially when they have no agenda other than finding the truth.”

    An Urgent Message for America –
    29 minutes

    • The warning message is that the Obama Administration’s goal and that of the Left is to destroy our military and bring it to its knees. This will occur if Obama is reelected Obama has intentionally slashed the military budget and stopped ships and planes from being built, and is dismantling the armed forces. Obama wants to cut the US nukes to 292 when the Russians have more than 1,500 that we know about. He reminded us of Obama in Korea when he was speaking to Medvedev and an open mike picked up the conversation. It was when Obama said after the election he would have more flexibility to deal with the Russians regarding the reduction of nukes. Putin is endorsing Obama, and for good reason.

      If Obama is allowed to gut the military, China and Russia will have all the power and who knows how they will react other than seeing the US as weak. If a new president comes in after Obama and says he will rebuilt the military after Obama dismantled it, the Chinese nor the Russians will allow any rebuilding to happen. It is guaranteed that both countries are all for gutting our military. Our military strength is what is what keeps them at bay. Obama and Leon Panetta’s goals are the same and they are working together to get this accomplished. Will Americans accept the gutting of the military?

      It was worth listening to Trevor’s analysis. He gave a historical analysis. He is Australian, yet he has helped our country immensely by revealing all of the communist connections and people that surround Obama. We owe him a great debt of gratitude.

      • And in the meantime, he’s using OUR MILITARY to bring about the new Islamic caliphate in the Middle East. Why else is he arming Al Qaeda to overthrow formerly stable secular states?

  5. The leftist Boston Herald is saying Obama’s ploys won’t work? Are they seeing the light?
    President Obama’s jokes can’t hide the truth

    MANCHESTER, N.H. — President Obama can make all the jokes he want about Mitt Romney’s “binders,” but Obama’s the one in the bind. He’s tossed everything and the kitchen sink at Romney. He’s even thrown in Big Bird. Now he’s calling Mitt “sketchy” — a term women use to describe men who give them the willies. But scare tactics and one-liners won’t work anymore.

    Romney’s impressive performance in the first debate, and mostly solid showing in the second, has rendered Obama’s attacks mostly ineffectual. Even Obama’s perceived gift in this week’s debate — moderator Candy Crowley “fact-checking” Romney over his claim that the president never said the attacks in Libya were due to an “act of terror” — hasn’t had much impact. All the exchange did was ensure that the terror attacks would dominate the next few days of the campaign.

    • That thing about binders is the stupidest meme I’ve ever seen. It makes no sense. You really have to have a chip on your shoulders and be looking for something to be offended about to get upset because Romney says he has “binders” full of women. It’s no different from saying he has files full of potential female appointees. Surely Barry keeps files, binders, etc. on people he’s vetting for jobs.

      This information coming out about Stevens and his quest for security OUGHT TO BE A HUGE OCTOBER SURPRISE FOR BARRY, but the media will NOT allow it. We’ll see how they try to avoid the topic at the debate. I wouldn’t be surprised if Barry makes a deal with Iran that lasts only through the election. Just about everything he says is only until he gets through the election. Can’t the imbeciles who plan to vote for him see that? Don’t they get deja vu when they hear him making his SAME STUMP SPEECHES as in 2008? HE’S MADE ALL THOSE PROMISES BEFORE. HE DIDN’T DO IT IN FOUR YEARS, TWO OF WHICH HE HAD THE HOUSE AND SENATE. WHAT MAKES ANYBODY THINK HE’LL KEEP HIS PROMISES NOW? Talk about “sketchy”. He’s the Etch-a-Sketch potus. He even said that he’s a “blank slate” and he was correct.

  6. Our Ambassador Is Dead, but Obama’s Political Guru Is Safe
    October 20, 2012

    Valerie Jarrett has no official role in anything involving national security, intelligence, or counter-terrorism. She is nothing more than a political aide and friend of the Obamas, upon whom they seem overly dependent. Yet she is living high, surrounded by a full Secret Service detail, as if she were of extraordinary importance to the nation. Presidents and their families get such protection; serious presidential candidates do; foreign leaders visiting here do — but not even cabinet members do, and never before has some White House staffer.

    Our ambassador to Libya is dead — and Barack Obama’s political guru is living the high life, making a mockery of our country’s security concerns.

    And our dishonest, corrupt media pretend not to notice.

  7. Michelle in her pretty little frock! I swear the woman’s taste is in her sixth toe. We only have to endure her “beauty” a couple more months. It will be such a relief to see real class when we have a new first lady instead of the brash trash we’ve seen for 4 years. I wonder how fast Mo’s lunch room menus will be removed from schools and her enforced regulations on restaurants are put into the garbage disposal.

    • My question above is getting answered. Forced feeding kids never works. MO’s experiment fails.

      GOP sees food fight as kids trash USDA fruit, vegetable guidelines

      House Republicans say new U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) guidelines aimed at forcing students to eat fruits and vegetables are a failure because students across the country are simply tossing the healthy fare into the trash. “There remains great concern with the amount of food waste generated at school cafeterias, much of it brought on by requiring students to take fruits and vegetables rather than simply offer them,” Reps. John Kline (R-Minn.), Kristi Noem (R-S.D.) and Phil Roe (R-Tenn.) told USDA Secretary Tom Vilsack in a letter sent Thursday.

      “This is a waste of federal, state and local funds and is contrary to the law’s goal of feeding as many low-income and hungry children as possible,” they said. “Once again, we are aware USDA has attempted to address this situation by allowing greater choice in reimbursable meals, but students should not have to take additional food if they have no intention of eating it.”

      Republicans have been criticizing USDA school lunch guidelines for the last few months, in particular USDA rules that set maximum-calorie guidelines for all meals subsidized by taxpayers. Last month, Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa) introduced the No Hungry Kids Act, which would repeal these calorie restrictions.

    • Is she preggers or is that just bloat? Or middle-age poofy tummy? Time for some more crunches, Mooch! I think Ann looks stunning with her hair down. What’s that writer talking about? She looks stunning either way.


    Can you believe this? INTERNATIONAL UN monitors will be at polling places in the US to make sure there’s no “voter suppression”. Well, I wonder if they’ll clash with the New Black Panthers? Or will they concern themselves only with “minority” voting rights? What will they do if they think they see anything funky and where do they think they get their authority from? Elections are STATE run, not federal government run and certainly not UN run. I’ll give them a piece of my mind if I run across any of them.

    • We must make sure that those darn conservatives aren’t suppressing the vote! They won’t be here to check out the democrats, they have reason to believe it is the conservatives who will stop the opposition from voting. Sure, the republicans always vote two and three times and are caught repeatedly! Civil rights groups are worried? They are only worried if they can’t get their voters to the polls to vote in state and out of state several times. Ply them with dope and cash to walk into the polls, and do take the homeless and give them whatever they need. No address, they will give them one. Those I.D. laws will get in their way when finally enacted, but many won’t be conveniently lawful until after this election. The Left doesn’t like it because they are getting caught and their methods are being published.

      “U.N. to monitor conservative groups at U.S. polls
      ‘Observers will follow up on the concerns raised by civil rights groups’

      Alexander Bolton wrote that the monitors will be “looking for voter suppression activities by conservative groups, a concern raised by civil rights groups during a meeting this week.” The term “voter suppression” is the phrase often used to describe efforts at eliminating voter fraud.”

      This was started by Elijah Cummings, D. Md. Cummings is a member of the Black Congressional Progressive Caucus! [It was the NAACP who contacted the UN to monitor elections- Last December, we reported that the NAACP petitioned the United Nations, claiming that efforts to stop voter fraud are really schemes to prevent minorities from voting.] Especially to watch conservative voting? I have forgotten the name of the group initiated and being monitored by Judicial Watch. Perhaps it is the True the Vote organization. They must be having an impact if the democrats are worried and need to attack in mass. They are the ones uncovering double voting by individuals in different states. Anyone think Eric Holder will do anything? 3 more months of Holder and he is out on his can.

      True the Vote News
      Congressman leads coordinated campaign against election group
      October 17, 2012

      A coalition of left-wing groups has sent threatening letters to election-watch groups and local officials around the country, accusing them of suppressing voting rights and violating laws. [What is the saying, “a good defense is a strong offense!” Whatever the Left accuses the Right of doing, it is they who are really the guilty parties.]

      Targeting the Houston-based True the Vote organization, groups ranging from the AFL-CIO to the NAACP and ACLU warn that legal action will be taken if their demands are not met. [The communist lead unions, NAACP and ACLU got together to undermine the elections and issue threats –they are becoming desperate as they see their power and their cover being removed from government shortly.].

      The coordinated campaign was triggered by a seven-page letter sent by U.S. Rep. Elijah Cummings, D-Md.
      Using official stationery of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, the Democrat demanded that True the Vote president Catherine Engelbrecht produce “a list of all individual voter registration challenges by state, county and precinct … including correspondence and determinations by election officials.”
      Last week, TTV turned over 99 more cases of suspected voter fraud to authorities in New York, Ohio, Florida and Rhode Island. [Are they repeat voter fraud offenders? ]

      • I read in the paper today that half of the “provisional ballots” in Florida were thrown away in a certain election (I forget which). But my point is that if HALF are thrown away that means that every one that’s thrown away represents an ATTEMPT to vote by someone who’s not eligible to vote. So that is ATTEMPTED vote fraud, isn’t it?

    • I want to know by whose authority is this allowed? To legally be a poll watcher, you must be a registered voter is my understanding. Can one of our poll watchers find out? There are several who are serving in this capacity and comment on our site. Is the UN governing the US now? Or is this further adherence to the submission of the US to the UN by Obama’s regime?

      Anyone know where these UN monitors will be stationed to watch over the voting in the U.S. i.e., cities? How many monitors and from what countries? The UN is such a law abiding organization that they have the nut job from Iran serving on the UN’s Human Rights Committee.

      From FOX, The Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE), a United Nations partner on democratization and human rights projects, will deploy 44 observers around the county on Election Day to monitor an array of activities, including potential disputes at polling places.

      Liberal-leaning civil rights groups met with representatives from the OSCE this week to raise their fears about what they say are systematic efforts to suppress minority voters likely to vote for President Obama.

      • Didn’t the Congressional Black Caucus go to the UN a couple months ago to ASK them to watch the polls and intervene in our elections? Seems that I remember linking that somewhere. They’d better not get in my face.

    Joe Arpaio’s “Birther” Chief Mike Zullo Strikes Back at Orly Taitz, Says He Doesn’t Want “Circus Show” Involved
    By Matthew Hendley Fri., Oct. 19 2012 Snip

    Sheriff Joe Arpaio and his “birther” chief Mike Zullo are balking at their chance to talk about their super official “investigation” of President Obama’s birth certificate in court, and Zullo tells New Times why — Orly Taitz.

    Taitz told us yesterday that she’s very upset with Arpaio and Zullo, since she’s tried to subpoena the two to appear as witnesses in a case she filed in an Indiana state court, since she believes they’re working toward a common goal here on the “birther” issue.

    Zullo says Taitz was one of the first people the Cold Case Posse contacted when Arpaio gave the go-ahead to start looking at Obama’s birth certificate and other documents, and adds that it “wasn’t a favorable contact.” “We don’t want our information tainted by a circus show,” Zullo says.

    Taitz hasn’t exactly been successful in her multiple court challenges to Obama’s eligibility, and Zullo noted Taitz’s propensity to make procedural errors in her cases. [Sounds like leftist talking points!] Zullo says he and Arpaio “don’t want the integrity of our investigation pulled through this,” which sent the readings on our irony meter off the chart.

  11. I still don’t understand why Orly took up the case with Judd who is in prison.

    From ORYR- Judge David Carter (the judge who was a Marine) Strikes Again:
    Dismisses Judd V. Obama Eligibility & Voter Fraud Lawsuit
    Oct. 18



    Before the Court is a lawsuit that eight Plaintiffs (“Plaintiffs”) brought against President Barack Obama and twenty-eight other Defendants.

    The gist of the lawsuit, to the extent a short description can capture its claims, is that the President is not a natural born citizen; that massive voter fraud has been and will be perpetrated; that officials in government are involved in those two conspiracies; and that various officials and journalists, along with participating in those conspiracies, have also separately violated the rights of the Plaintiffs through defamation and other actions appearing to sound in tort. Defendants include local, state, and national officials, journalists, media outlets, the Postmaster General, and a federal judge.

    • On the Peter Boyle show John Sampson was questioned. He is running for office in Colorado. He was subpoenaed to the Oct. 22nd hearing in Indiana. He said that he, Zullo, Arpaio all agreed not to show up in Indiana. All Orly wanted was for them to “simply confirm to the judge their own sworn affidavits,” and now they are not going to show up in court.

      Per Orly “He [Sampson] is not expected to reveal any secrets or any confidential information from an ongoing investigation. He and Arpaio and Zullo are required to comply with court ordered subpoenas and appear in court and confirm only what they already made public and made a part of their public sworn affidavits.”

      As a refresher, John N. Sampson was the private investigator that accessed the US database to which he was privy to find that Obama was born in Equatorial Guinea.

      Obama’s Lying Blue Lips

      Whose Identity did Obama Steal?

      • This isn’t making sense to me. Below is the video of the Peter Boyle show with John and Orly. John makes a case that Orly’s civil case isn’t as important as the criminal case that Arpaio is building. It sounds like John doesn’t want to get on the stand and answer any questions that could interfere with the criminal case. Orly accuses him of colluding with Zullo and Arpaio in a pact to not cooperate and to not appear in court. John was livid with the implication and accused her of defamation. Orly thinks that Obama and Arpaio made some sort of deal so that the F eds would stop their investigation of his office. It wasn’t a pleasant exchange between John and Orly and Peter kept having to stop them both from talking/yelling. John also said he didn’t have time to go to Indiana even for the 5 minute appearance that Orly wanted because of the demands of running for office. He will be in contempt of court if he is a no show.

        John Sampson v. Orly Taitz: Sampson Obliterates Orly Taitz; Threatens Defamation Lawsuit Against Orly Taitz

        • I read that earlier today at ORYR and I couldn’t figure it out, either, so I was waiting for greater minds than mine to explain. That story from the Phoenix blog is snarky, so I didn’t read it closely. When I got to their ridicule of Zullo’s “official” investigation, I stopped reading. ORYR could help if, instead of a bunch of links, they’d give us some words to tie things together. They follow these cases more closely, so it would behoove them to explain to their readers what’s going on. I can’t keep the cases straight, but I knew that Orly wanted them to testify and they said they wouldn’t answer the subpoenas. They don’t have to, apparently. Or at least that’s what I read weeks ago. That’s interesting that Sampson was the one who found the reference to Equatorial Guinea. Gee, that was a looooong time ago, wasn’t it?

        • I have always wondered what happened to that information about E. Guinea and why it didn’t come out in many of the other lawsuits. Now I know at least Sheriff Arpaio has it. Many are questioning why he and Zullo haven’t done anything to further the case along. Perhaps it will all come out after the election when the fear factor associated with opposing this administration will be gone. We knew that Eric Holder wouldn’t do anything…but perhaps his successor will. Those in power now are not off the hook by any means, and without any indictments, Obama has no one to pardon for their corrupt activities. That is the only benefit I see for waiting. If by any chance BHO and the Left steal the election, it would be another story. We all know that no one was willing to listen to the citizens about Obama, but maybe the next crop of “representatives” or government officials will. Waiting for the new broom to sweep clean!

          • Good point about waiting until they’re in power again. But as with “W”, they just we happy to sweep the WH out and proceed from there, brushing all the corruption associated with the Clintons under the rug. Of course, that came back to bite them when Hillary reared her ugly head again and now is Sec. of State with blood on her hands. And she’s planning to run for president again. How’s that “compassionate conservatism” working out for We the People? Now so well for US, is it? The Clintons are complicit in all the DAMAGE Obama has done to our country for the past four years. I remember wondering before if it’s possible for Barry to pardon people IN ADVANCE before their crimes are investigated or charged? If it’s possible, he WILL do it and he’ll surely pardon Holder and himself. I still expect him to pardon and release everybody from Guantanamo. Don’t be surprised if the Blind Sheikh is pardoned, too. I won’t be.

  12. Good grief, the trolls are running rampant at ORYR…they are letting all the representatives of Foggy’s and Con’s on there so the discourse has completely deteriorated to the Left’s sewage level. Don’t they monitor? Is it now run and posted by bots?

  13. On The Five – Bob Beckel: “If Gallup numbers are correct, It’s over!” I loved seeing Beckel just squirm in disbelief when the new Gallup poll numbers showing Obama losing to Romney were announced. It warmed the cockles of my heart.

    “Thursday’s Gallup tracking poll giving Republican nominee Mitt Romney a seven-point lead over President Barack Obama”….


    • Wouldn’t we blow a gasket ourselves if we’ve been duped again. I trust the polls more than I trust that we won’t have a swarm of undetectable voter Fraud. That still has me worried. I’ve come across too much weird stuff .

      Also, here’s this proposal.

      • Voter registration is the purview of the states. Elections are run by the states. The federal government has nothing to do with elections. What computerized lists would they use? The ones that now contain ILLEGAL ALIENS as citizens because they use FALSE DOCUMENTS? “Pass names of eligible voters from state agencies on to election officials.” Gee, like Motor Voter, where everybody who gets a driver’s license, even illegal aliens who use false documents and felons are registered to vote? So now what? They’ll automatically register everybody who collects food stamps, like those illegal aliens and the non-citizen immigrants on welfare? Imho, anybody who can’t be bothered to go register to vote or to change his or her address when moving, doesn’t deserve to vote. It’s a minimal effort. Oh, see how sneaky? They have in the bill to give felons back the right to vote. Right now, that’s controlled by state law. They want to do an end run around the state laws and mandate it at the federal level.

        • I knew that might get a rise out of you Miri> I’m not sure what I think about this waste of time bad policy . Just too many areas to think how this could go down. I just noticed it was for immediate release! Hmmm..
