Really,it’s the bias liberal media?
I've been watching politics for longtime and I have yet to hear a campaign say that the liberal bias is the number-one reason a campaign is seen as being behind. Even the right leaning Rasmussen Poll and Fox News Poll has Romney/Ryan behind. I saw a Romney staffer tell a reporter yesterday, that their internal polls show them ahead in some swing states. I imagine if he really had data, he would have and shown it to Fox News by now.
A lot of people are skeptical about polls, and that's understandable, but when you have 20 polls that all show Obama ahead in all of 'em, I believe there's at least a trend. I also believe that Karl Rove is the person to watch because, when he starts using most of its cash for downhill candidates; it means he's given up on the presidential race. Mitt Romney will spend three days in Ohio, but that's three days that's he's not in Florida, Virginia, Colorado and Iowa where the president is leading and gaining steam. Mr. Romney cannot lose Ohio and Florida and win the election. No Republican has ever lost Ohio and won the presidency.
The Republicans say that they still have a lot of time, but 26 states have already started voting. The Romney camp has put all their eggs on in one basket; the upcoming debates. It is my opinion that Romney has to beat Obama to a pulp in the first debate, or he'll never be able to recover.
It's really too bad because Mitt Romney is not a bumbling nincompoop, he's a good businessman, intelligent, and yesterday at the Clinton Global Initiative, he looked very presidential in laying out a worldwide plan. He even told a funny joke about how a few good words from President Clinton can do wonders for one's campaign. He said that he was expecting a pretty good bump in a couple of days. Mitt Romney might have gone down as Jon Huntsman did, running as the moderate he is, but he's trailing the president by a good margin because he doesn't believe in the stuff he is saying. For example, on Univision, he told a moderator that he was proud that the Obama campaign is calling him the grandfather of Obamacare. The next day, his campaign said he was just being facetious. A couple of years ago, he railed against those using the ER for their medical needs he correct;y said it was driving up the cost of health care. Two years ago Romney said that's why he believed in universal health care. Sunday he told Scott Peavey of CBS 60 Minutes that the uninsured wouldn't be without health care because they could use the emergency room.
I really expect the polls to tighten as the election nears because some Republicans, really hate President Obama. Buzz Feed is reporting that over a million copies of the film claiming President Obama's true father is a Chicago Communist is now being shipped to Ohioans. Republicans have always relied on the fear card when they are clearly behind. They don't realize that the president has been in office for close to four years and people have already made up their mind about him. They dismissed the propaganda in 2008. A lot of voters who usually vote for the Democratic party may be disenfranchised with voter suppression laws, but we will have to wait and see.
I really don't know why Texans are wasting their time trying to persuade voters not to vote for Obama by writing fact- challenged letters because the state will give all their 38 electoral votes to Mitt Romney.
I enjoy watching Joe Scarborough, host of "Morning Joe" hyperventilate and bang his head with the palm of his hand after hearing yet another gaffe from Mitt Romney or Paul Ryan. This morning there were still talking about the story in the blog "Politico"about the Romney camp being furious at Paul Ryan for the AARP event and because he is using PowerPoint presentations as part of his stump speeches. On the other hand, the two will be appearing together because Mitt Romney can't generate that much excitement from his stump speeches. It didn't have to be this way, but the GOP decided to leave their best players on the bench for the 2012 presidential election. That decision may have been disastrous because the Democrats had a uphill challenge in holding the Senate, but if it was held today; they would win the Senate and gain one senator. The ineptness of the Romney campaign is making a likable and pretty good politician Republican senator, Scott Brown, to go negative in trying to keep his seat in Massachusetts.
Tighten up your chin straps, buckle up your seats; we are in for nasty 40 days down the stretch.
It's funny how that goes because, if you're a Republican, you are taught at a very young age to hate unions. That has its limitations because Governor Scott Walker and Paul Ryan are barking at the owners' to settle the strike and bring back the union refs. The National Football League is a $9 billion industry, but it's allowing its main product to suffer just to show who's in command. Severe Injuries are up because the replacement referees are not equipped nor do they know what to look for from these professional players.
