ALOHA, ALL!! Thoughts and prayers are with all HDR readers on the East coast preparing for Hurricane Sandy. Let’s hope the storm won’t be as bad as anticipated. The Weather Channel has live hurricane coverage:
And yes, it could affect the election. How Hurricane Sandy Could Seriously Disrupt The Election
But there’s another storm that’s getting very little hype, and it hits on November 6. Check out these endorsements coming in for Romney:
But it’s not just one newspaper in Iowa – it’s FOUR!!
And….wait for it…Chicago Daily Herald
No big deal, you say? Who cares about endorsements anyhow – do they really sway voters? I tend to agree with you….not such a big deal except that The Des Moines Register hasn’t endorsed a Republican in 40 years. And the Chicago Daily Herald is…well…in Chicago. And they endorsed Obama in 2008. Here’s why they went with Romney:
“In endorsing Illinois’ favorite son in 2008, we declared Obama “has a chance to be a great president.” We said, “He offers a new kind of politics. A politics that breaks down the old partisan walls. A politics that strives to bring people together. A politics of hope.”…But four years later, where is the hope? Where is the confident swagger and leadership to uplift the nation’s mood?…[W]e endorse Romney because he, unlike Obama, understands that jobs are a creation of business, not of government. And that to encourage job growth, we need policies that incent business to grow and provide it with a stable environment for that growth. In the end, we need moderation, not ideology, to facilitate an economic recovery. It is the central issue that affects us all.”
Of course, The Boston Globe endorsed Obama. Go figure.
Polls are moving in Romney’s direction. Big Time. Tight Polls, Looming Storm Shake Campaigns “Romney held a 4-point edge, at 50-46, among likely voters in Sunday’s Gallup daily tracking poll. In the tracking survey from conservative pollster Rasmussen, Romney topped Obama 50-47. A Washington Post/ABC News tracking poll, though, showed a statistical dead heat, with Romney up 49-48.” And Gallup Finds Republicans Outnumber Democrats ”Based on surveys conducted from October 1 through 24, Gallup finds that 36% of likely voters call themselves Republicans, compared with 35% who are Democrats. If leaners are included, the GOP advantage is 49%/46%.”
There could always be an October surprise. Dick Morris explains the impact they’ve had in the past:
Libya storm grows. Hillary Asked For More Security In Benghazi, Obama Said No ”It is possible that Clinton’s legal counsel may have revealed this story to various sources, in hopes of protecting her reputation. Reports also indicate that former President Bill Clinton has urged his wife to release State Department documents “that prove she called for additional security at the compound in Libya.” Those same, unconfirmed reports indicate Obama will almost certainly lose the election if those documents are released.”
It gets better (actually, worse). AC-130U Gunship Was On-Scene In Benghazi, Obama Admin Refused To Let It Fire “The AC-130U is a very effective third-generation fire-support aircraft, capable of continuous and extremely accurate fire onto multiple targets. It has been used numerous times in Iraq and Afghanistan to save pinned-down allied forces, and has even been credited with the surrender of the Taliban city of Kunduz.”
What about General Ham? (Shaka to Carl) Did General Ham Become Another Victim For Trying To Save Americans In Benghazi? “A rumor is circulating that General Ham moved to defy orders to try and save the lives of the Americans in Benghazi and was immediately relieved of duty. General Ham immediately had a rapid response unit ready and communicated to the Pentagon that he had a unit ready. General Ham then received the order to stand down. His response was that he was going to help anyhow.”
Then there’s this (Shaka to Tom): US General Arrested For Activating Special Forces Teams ”Africom commanding officer U.S. General Carter Ham, after being ordered to essentially surrender control of the situation to alleged Al Queda terrorists and let Americans on the ground die, made the unilateral decision to ignore orders from the Secretary of Defense and activated special operations teams at his disposal for immediate deployment to the area. According to reports, once the General went rogue he was arrested within minutes by his second in command and relieved of duty.” Of course, the General can’t say anything….at least not yet.
They’re not afraid to speak out. Special Ops heroes on Obama: Leaks, Lies, Libya…Lack of Leadership.
GOD BLESS AMERICA – PASS THIS ON – REMEMBER IN 8 DAYS!!
ALOHA, ALL!! So what can we expect in the final debate between Barack Obama and Mitt Romney? Since the focus of this match will be foreign policy, Obama will be grasping at straws….anything…to make it seem like he’s been a formidable leader of the free world. Another epic fail. Dick Morris published what he called a “Roadmap for Monday’s Debate.” It could be titled a “Roadmap of Obama’s Foreign Policy Failures.” To wit:
There is a temptation to get lost in the weeds of when Obama recognized that the Libya attack was, indeed, an act of terror. But the key point is that Obama treated the video as a provocation for the attack as if they had a moral equivalency. Otherwise, why constantly mention the video in the same breath as the attack? Why run an ad apologizing for the video in Pakistan? Why address the video in his U.N. speech? It may be a bridge too far to convince people that Obama was engaged in a cover-up for political purposes trying to convince people there was no premeditated terror attack. But surely there is no good reason for lumping the attack and video together. It’s like saying “he murdered this guy but only after the guy called him a dirty word.”
But, beyond the specifics of Libya, a 2011 national survey by Pat Caddell and John McLaughlin provides the key lines of attack Romney should follow in the foreign policy debate coming up on Monday.
• Obama’s outreach to the Muslim world has decreased our national security. 30% believe it has increased our security and 47% feel it has decreased it. Romney should attack Obama for naïveté in his dealing with the Arab world and for not seizing and holding the moral high ground but instead seeking to understand the other guy and give him the benefit of the doubt.
• Romney should stress that Obama’s policy toward Iran will not stop it from developing nuclear weapons. By 77-10 voters agree that they will not stop Iran. Asked what he would do, he should say that he will support Israel if she has to take military action against Iran. He should say that he does not believe we need to commit US soldiers or aircraft but that we should provide Israel with the ordinance they need to destroy the Iranian missile sites. If Obama says this could lead to a general war, Romney should say that a strong posture does not cause wars, but a weak one does. He should say that if the US makes clear that it will help Israel if it comes down to that, then Iran will realize that it must curtail its weapons program. In the meantime, Romney should stress the need to support the democratic opposition to the Ayatollah. If it ultimately has to come down to a war, better now before they have nuclear weapons than after they get them.
• Romney should attack Obama for failing to discipline China. He needs to explain that we sell only $50 billion to China and buy $400 billion from them (check numbers). With the rest of the world, we hold our own in trade. That’s because of currency manipulation. Obama is frightened that China will stop lending us money. But he doesn’t understand that China lends us money because they have to. The buy dollars and sell Yuan to keep the Yuan weak so Chinese products are cheaper in the US. Then what are they going to do with all those dollars? Bet them in Vegas? They buy T bills with them. That’s all they can do and that’s how the lend us the money. If they stopped manipulating, we wouldn’t need their money because we’d have an even balance of trade with the. By 20-75 voters do not believe Obama has been tough enough with China and most see fear of their no longer lending us money is the reason.
• Romney should attack Obama’s advocacy of an 80% cut in our strategic arsenal with no reciprocal cuts from Russia or China. By 22-64 voters oppose Obama’s position.
• He should go after Obama for cutting American defense spending too much. By 32-58, voters believe the cuts are “way too deep.”
• Romney should press Obama about what he meant by giving him more space with Russia after the election. Most likely, he was referring to a commitment by us that we would not orbit anti-missile satellites, a key concession which would make Iran and North Korea even more dangerous.
• Romney should criticize Obama for equating Israel and the Palestinians as two morally equivalent sides of a dispute. He should say: “If the Arabs laid down their arms, there would be no war. If Israel laid down its arms, there would be no Israel.”
• Romney should attack Islamic fundamentalism for its attitude toward women and criticize Obama’s political correctness and refusal to face up to the threat it poses. He should, for example, criticize him for removing any references to Muslim extremism from FBI training manuals and his firing of good conscientious FBI agents for being Islamophobic.
These are the milestones to a successful debate. (Published on dickmorris.com, October 19, 2012)
All about Bob. The Bias of Bob Schieffer – Top 7 Moments ”Schieffer has steadfastly refused to acknowledge his biases over the years. But his words below speak for themselves. Can he contain himself tonight? Like Crowley, he’s signaled to the media that he will “interject” himself to stop candidate “filibuster[ing]” when necessary.”
Gee….could this be a blatant attempt to skew the election? US Officials Say Iran Has Agreed To Nuclear Talks ”Iranian officials have insisted that the talks wait until after the presidential election, a senior administration official said, telling their American counterparts that they want to know with whom they would be negotiating.” And: Iran Deal The October Surprise? ”Will Obama announce a deal with Iran for a moratorium on the enrichment of uranium in return for the dismantling of some of the international sanctions against the regime? And will the announcement be timed to appear just before the election?”
Gee….ya think the US press would give Romney a pass if this were his campaign? Obama Campaign Accepted UK Donation ”President Barack Obama’s online donation site has accepted illegal donations from a foreign citizen, while Gov. Mitt Romney’s site rejected a donation from the same man, according to a New York Post article.”
Gee…could the Obama administration have known a lot more about the Libya attack than they’ve admitted? Unmanned Drone Observed Benghazi Terror Attack, Did Nothing ”As the details of Obama’s cover-up slowly trickle out, we get the feeling by the time this is all done with we’ll find out Obama himself was personally observing the action in between fundraisers. Now we discover we had drone surveillance of the attack as it happened and did nothing. Maybe we were concerned about innocent civilians protesting a video getting hurt.”

ALOHA, ALL!! Obama has everything to lose in Tuesday’s debate. Everything. The pressure is on for him to do better than the first time he debated Romney. He’s been holed up somewhere trying to get his facts straight and no doubt practicing one-line zingers he can throw at Romney. Will it work? Obama will be walking a very fine line. Since Biden already showed voters that the Democrats are arrogant bullies, Obama can’t seem too smug. Frank Luntz – In Second Debate Romney Must Make Obama Go Negative On the other hand, he needs to be more aggressive than he was the last time. My prediction: epic fail for Obama. He won’t have a teleprompter. He’ll have the pressure of Romney being right next to him in a Town Hall format – no dais to hide behind and pretend to take notes. Will he make another 57 states-like gaffe? Should be interesting.
Candy Crowley = Obama Hack. (Shaka to Biz) Crowley Shouldn’t Re-Interpret Questions ”The Commission on Presidential Debates does not want Candy Crowley, the debate moderator, to reinterpret audience members’ questions — a small but important point in this ongoing debate over what role the moderator is meant to play in the townhall-format debate.” But if there’s any way she can make Obama look good, she will!!!
The mother of all swing states is deeply in play. Yep….the one with the Buckeyes in it. Check this out from Mark Halpern (Shaka to Carl):
The Romney Scenario
By Mark Halperin | October 15, 2012
Here’s why some Democrats are worried tonight. If Romney wins the three Southern battlegrounds (FL, NC, and VA) and OH, he is at 266 electoral votes. Leaving the other five battlegrounds unallocated, that means Obama would be at 237 and Romney would only need to win one of the remaining five states to get to 270+. See the map above.
One senior Democratic official expressed real concern tonight unlike I have heard before about Ohio potentially slipping away from Obama (the state has been trending Republican in statewide races, Rob Portman has become a force, religious and gun groups are flooding the state with voter contacts, two of Romney’s top strategists have recently won a statewide race there, etc).
This doesn’t mean Romney has the upper hand right now. But it is no longer at all implausible that he could take the three Southern battlegrounds and Ohio. If he does that, he sure as heck would have the upper hand. And that leaves at least some Democrats with the shakes.
But wait….there’s more! (Shaka to Scott): Romney Narrows Gap With Women, Leads Obama In Swing States ”As the presidential campaign heads into its final weeks, the survey of voters in 12 crucial swing states finds female voters much more engaged in the election and increasingly concerned about the deficit and debt issues that favor Romney. The Republican nominee has pulled within one point of the president among women who are likely voters, 48%-49%, and leads by 8 points among men.”
The 8,000 pound gorilla is still in the room and he ain’t leaving. (No, I don’t mean Hillary) Hillary Clinton Is Key To Unlocking Libya Scandal ”It is clear the scandal is being intentionally manipulated by the Obama administration. Do not forget Obama and Hillary Clinton are from the school of Alinsky. Miss-information and contradictions are their tools because chaos is their friend. They embrace it. The conflicting interviews and contradictory statements during the last month have been carefully managed and methodically unrolled. While you sit back and smile thinking you’ve got it figured out, they’re huddling and drawing up the next play. This is what they do.”
And speaking of sleaziness, I still don’t trust Obama. Neither does Dick Morris. He thinks Obama may have an October surprise up his sleeve.

ALOHA, ALL!!! I borrowed the title of this HDR from Dennis Miller. He tweeted it out shortly after the end of last night’s debate. Says it all, doesn’t it? More debate aftermath – first from Dick Morris:
Romney Wins! ”Romney’s aides and surrogates sprinted into the spin room to offer effusive assessments of their candidate’s performance, and Fox News contributor Juan Williams was caroling “Massacre! Massacre!” to himself as he bounded out of the men’s restroom. Obama’s team didn’t meet the press for a full 10 minutes — and one top Democrat, asked to say the best thing about the president’s performance, said Obama has been “just working to maintain cool and be reassuring” in an email to POLITICO.” LOL!!
Powerline Blog – It’s Over ”I’ve been watching presidential debates for quite a few years, but I have never seen one like this. It wasn’t a TKO, it was a knockout.”
From one of my favorite blogs, Nebraska Energy Observer: Debate Roundup ”Part of the reason that Obama looked so bad last night is something we’ve talked about before, he’s an ‘affirmative action‘ hire. He’s never had to perform to the standards that the rest of us have, and last night he ran into a man who has objectively excelled.”
Another great blog, White House 2012: Al Gore And Friends Blame Obama’s Poor Debate Performance On The Altitude ”After spending more than 4 years blaming everything on George Bush, the left, under the leadership of liberal icon Al Gore has now turned to a new scapegoat…. the altitude.”

If you somehow missed the debate last night, here’s all you need to see:
GOD BLESS AMERICA – PASS THIS ON – REMEMBER IN NOVEMBER – 33 DAYS AND COUNTING!
ALOHA, ALL!!! The first debate is here. Will Romney finally put Obama away? Some perspective (Shaka to George for the info):
Most national polls show President Obama with a small lead, but more importantly, with slightly larger leads in most of the key swing states, particularly Ohio (18 electoral votes). The swing state polls, though conducted and publicized less frequently than national polls, are the more crucial to watch since the Electoral College will determine who wins. Consensus polling today indicates that Obama would win the national vote by a few points but win the Electoral College far more decisively.
Many pundits challenge the accuracy of both the national and state polls. All polls are tabulated differently, and none are perfect. We try to look at the consistent trends and common threads among polls, and we value those factors as meaningful in determining an outcome. Over the last few weeks, the trend has favored ￼Obama in the national polls (although within the margin of error) and more decisively in the Electoral College.
Some of these states may experience changes in the next five weeks, but the map depicts where we believe the race stands now:
Presidential debates have the potential to be very important to an election outcome, but, historically, they have not always been impactful. The presidential debate in 1980 was an example of an influential debate as Ronald Reagan erased an 8-point deficit in the polls and beat incumbent President Jimmy Carter by 10 points on the basis of a strong debate performance. Since that time, debates have had varying degrees of impact on election outcomes but none has been especially decisive.
Three presidential debates are scheduled between President Obama and Governor Romney, the first occurring on October 3. A debate involving Vice President Biden and Governor Romney’s running mate, Congressman Paul Ryan, will take place on October 11.
Will the debates be impactful? They can be. As the challenger currently behind in the polls, Romney has more to gain in the debates. He is lesser known to the public than Obama, and voters will size him up more than they will assess Obama. Romney must convince more voters that he is a viable alternative to President Obama and that he understands their concerns and anxieties. These personal characteristics are not easy to convey in tightly-choreographed and relatively brief debates, especially since many voters already have a view of Romney that is at odds with his campaign’s preferred perception.
The first debate will be especially important for Romney. More viewers will watch it than the subsequent debates, and for many it may be their first significant exposure to Romney. Without a strong performance, many viewers may tune out the following debates.
As the front-runner, President Obama has more to lose in the debates. He needs to make his appeal to the few undecided voters still remaining, and he must tactfully keep Romney on the defense, as he has for most of the campaign. He doesn’t have to win the debates, but look for him to continue to try to reinforce more voter doubt about Romney. Look for Obama to lower expectations about his debate performances prior to the debates as a tactic to put more pressure on Romney.

And Dick Morris’ thoughts:
GOD BLESS AMERICA – PASS THIS ON – REMEMBER IN NOVEMBER – 34 DAYS AND COUNTING!!!
ALOHA, ALL!! This one has really been flying under the radar. Hillary Clinton is ready to sign (on July 27) the UN Arms Trade Treaty. This treaty will eviscerate our Second Amendment rights. It will put Americans under the gun-control whim of the United Nations, any time, anywhere. It doesn’t matter that the Second Amendment gives us the right to bear arms, this treaty will supercede the Constitution. And if Hillary Clinton signs it, the Senate ratifies it, and Barack Obama approves it, it can never be voided. Dick Morris explains:
Go HERE right NOW and sign Morris’ petition. I usually don’t sign such online things but this one will have an impact. After you sign, it gives you the opportunity to send the petition directly to your Representatives & Senators. (As a side note, I already got an automated email response from my Representative, Mazie Hirono, who is basically worthless. I don’t expect her to send anything more than a form letter, but even if you have an Obamabot representing you like I do, at least this lets he/she know you are paying attention.) Even if you don’t own a gun, sign it…..NOW! If you need more inspiration, watch Charlton Heston explain the importance of the Second Amendment (shaka to NEO for the link):

Now this could get interesting: Countrywide Scandal Resurfaces – Obama Advisers Involved ”The collapse of Countrywide Mortgage ranks as a pivotal point in the nationwide housing collapse that swiftly turned into an all out and still ongoing recession for the United States.

Ray LaHood Hearts China. Transportation Secretary Wants Us to be More Like Communist China ”The Chinese are more successful [in building infrastructure] because in their country, only three people make the decision. In our country, 3,000 people do, 3 million. In a country where only three people make the decision, they can decide where to put their rail line, get the money, and do it. We don’t do it that way in America.” Yep….these are the people in charge of our government right now. Remember in November!

One elderly lady in Ohio – who reportedly “loved Obama” – died after meeting him: Elderly Restaurant Owner Dies Shortly After Meeting Obama And another bystander saluted Barry’s Canadian-made bus as it passed by (Shaka to All American Blogger for the pics):
I don’t think his tour has gone as well as he hoped. BTW…..notice the new campaign slogan, “Betting on America”? Uh, isn’t Romney’s slogan “Believe in America”? Team Obama can’t even be original any more. What happened to “Forward”? A little too much of a Freudian slip? Obama Slogan Has Long Ties To Marxism, Socialism

ALOHA ALL! Some encouraging news on the polling front: Mitt Romney has closed the Gender Gap with Barack Obama. Just a few months ago (after the Democrats fabricated the fake “War on Women”) it seemed insurmountable for Romney to gain a foothold with the female vote. What a difference a couple of months make! Women are realizing that the economy is failing and that Obama’s policies are to blame. When considering those who have lost their jobs, women have been hit especially hard – 92% of the jobs lost in Obama’s economy were jobs held by women. According to an April 17 “Fact Checker” article in the Washington Post, women have lost both public sector and private sector jobs under Obama. And while Obama claims that the private sector is “doing fine,” 243,000 women have lost jobs during his time in office while men have gained 82,000 jobs….in the private sector. Doing fine? Investors Business Daily reports that overall, private sector jobs are down 4% since January 2008, and public sector jobs are up 11.4%. No matter how Obama tries to spin it and regardless of his smoke and mirrors ploy using Sandra Fluke in his carnival act, women are seeing past his rhetoric. Which is why the Gender Gap has closed. Dick Morris explains it perfectly in this video:
The latest Gallup poll cited by Morris is astounding - Romney has overcome an 18 point Gender Gap deficit in April and is now only 3 points behind, meaning it’s a dead heat. And these stats are for 12 key battleground states. Romney’s favorability among women has seen a 21 point swing for the better. In April, he was viewed favorably by 27% of women and unfavorably by 52%. Now, his favorability is 40% and unfavorability is 44%. This is a remarkable turn-around. So I have to say to my fellow females, thanks for restoring my faith in our gender! While I know some will still beat the “War on Women” drum, it’s producing a hollow, discordant tune. But many of you have come a long way in just a few short months and realize the dire consequences of four more years with Obama. You see another more optimistic path for yourselves and future generations. Stay the course!

ALOHA, ALL!! Faithful HDR readers know I’m a staunch Buckeye – I bleed scarlet & gray! But today I gotta give shakas to people from two rival territories: Scott Walker from Wisconsin and Tim Tebow from Florida. YOU GUYS ROCK!! Net Gain of 33,000 jobs in Wisconsin in Scott Walker’s First Year ”Barrett’s campaign is accusing Walker of cherry-picking data and playing politics by accelerating the publication of the CEW results. However, the accusation of cherry-picking is nonsense. The CEW is an actual census of employers in the state, not a survey based on a sample of households.” But some people are very unhappy with Walker – his opponents: Pro Scott Walker Signs Burned On Private Property Nice.

Ten Tips for Tim Tebow ”A good, God fearing man, born to Christian missionaries, comes to New York to help the team win. How will he handle the Big City, and will the media give him a chance?” GO TEBOW! In Other News: Team Romney WILL beat Team Obama. Here’s why: Romney’s team is smart – they are staying positive and focused. They refuse to get pulled into the mire of what Super PACs might do (the PACs will do whatever they want anyhow.) Then there’s this. Obama in Tight Primary Race in Arkansas Yep….right in Clinton Country he’s only 7 points ahead of an unknown! And here’s how Team Romney is using this: ”Seeking to attract Democrats and independents who supported the last Democratic president, Romney has taken to lavishing praise at every turn on Clinton’s boom-era ’90s policies while contrasting them unfavorably with President Barack Obama’s old-school, Big Government ways.” I repeat….Team Romney WILL beat Team Obama. Obama budget voted down. Again. 99-0. A Glimmer of Hope for the American Dream ”Compare the President’s proposal — and Reid’s total lack of a proposal — with the four plans offered by conservatives in Congress, chief among them being Senator Mike Lee’s (R-UT) budget, which mirrors the bold and thorough reforms The Heritage Foundation first proposed in its Saving the American Dream plan. That includes limiting the size of the federal government, reforming entitlement programs, and simplifying the federal tax code in an effort to restore our nation’s economic prosperity and ensure that future generations are not saddled with today’s debt.” Harry Reid – epic FAIL! Senate Rejects Five Budget Plans “Democrats can’t even put a plan on a piece of paper,” said Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, a Kentucky Republican. “As far as I can tell, their only plan is to take shots at our plans and hope nobody notices that they don’t have one of their own.” The votes, he said, will show the public “who’s got a plan to fix the mess we’re in and who doesn’t.” WHY ARE WE STILL BUYING OIL FROM VENEZUELA?? Dick Morris explains in this video how Iran is shipping missiles to Chavez – missiles that can easily strike the US. The story that just won’t go away. I wonder why? Proof Obama Born in Kenya? Obama Literary Agent Says So ”Breitbart News has obtained a promotional booklet produced in 1991 by Barack Obama’s then-literary agency, Acton & Dystel, which touts Obama as “born in Kenya and raised in Indonesia and Hawaii.” UPDATE: Literary Agent Now Claims “Fact-Checking Error.” OK…so why did Obama say ”I am so proud to come back home”? While speaking in Kenya in 2006???? Is this also a “fact-checking error?” GREAT video from Susan B Anthony List! Final Thought: “Any time you give a man something he doesn’t earn, you cheapen him.

ALOHA, ALL!!! We know Obama likes to operate under the radar to push his anti-colonialist agenda (exposed in “Dreams from My Father”….read Dinesh D’Souza’s book “The Roots of Obama’s Rage.”) We know he likes to bypass Congress and even make a mockery out of our three branches of government (note all his Executive Orders and attempted bullying of The Supreme Court.) But we are only beginning to realize how sinister and destructive his plans are for the United States. Check out this video from Dick Morris. (Yes, I know he shamelessly plugs his new book. But he’s talking about something I ‘ll bet you haven’t heard of or even thought remotely possible.)
If you think all this is far-fetched, I repeat…..read Dinesh D’Souza’s book! Obama’s plan is to give away our sovereignty and he doesn’t care how he gets it done. In fact, if he’s not re-elected he’ll be more determined than ever to make sure this comes to pass this year.
Scared yet???? YOU SHOULD BE!!!!!
President Obama: ”On all these issues, but particularly missile defense, this, this can be solved but it’s important for him to give me space.”
President Medvedev: ”Yeah, I understand. I understand your message about space. Space for you…”

ALOHA, ALL!! They’re pulling out all the stops. Obama knows he needs the black vote to win. He knows young people need to get out for him again. Only problem…they’re not fired up like they were in 2008. What’s an incompetent incumbent to do? He can’t run on his miserable record, so he needs to drum up racial unrest and more Occupy events, and create slick campaigns targeted to those specific voting blocs. In fact, he doesn’t even need to do it himself (well, he doesn’t really do any of it himself – his sycophants do it for him.) With friends like moveon.org and The New Black Panther Party stirring things up, everything is hunky-dory. With no shortage of useful idiots, Barry can focus on more important things like spreading lies about Paul Ryan’s budget plan. Ah….life is good in Obamaland!
Moveon.org promo of the “99% Spring.” Hollywood’s beautiful, young useful idiots at their finest. This is a training program for what they call “non-violent direct action.” Sign-up is between now and April 15. Don’t you just love how they use the Occupy movement and the Wisconsin protests as examples of ”non-violent direct action”? Yeah…no violence there.
New Black Panthers stoke the racial fires. You’ve likely heard this audio but this is not the first time the New Black Panther Party has called for violence. This time, they call for “blood shed” numerous times, calling it “crossing the Red Sea.” Notice how they put a bounty on George Zimmerman’s head, dead or alive. Apparently, the chief of staff of the New Black Panther Party apologized for her remarks: New Black Panther Party chief of staff Michelle Williams apologizes after George Zimmerman radio outburst SO WHAT???
