I know some of you enjoyed the banter that you had with Spathy, however I banned him and typical of the far right he disregarded rules and procedures and made another name to circumvent the ban. He's gone again.

To my worried friends, the fat lady is still warming up. Yes, Romney advanced amazingly in the popular voter polls. However Obama's popularity did not decline by much, only a half a percentage point in the aggregate polls. Romney's popularity did jump by just over 4 points. More importantly Obama did not dip in the pre-vote electoral college count and he still holds the lead in battleground states.


I found this article below very telling as it was just a few months ago that politicians were clamoring for tea party support and now so many of them want no affiliation with the outcast group.




Brad Schneider’s Tea Party allegations rile Robert Dold in House race
Article


Republican U.S. Rep. Robert Dold, right, wants Democratic challenger Brad Schneider to retract a commercial he claims distorts his political record.

By Russell Lissau
Republican U.S. Rep. Robert Dold wants Democratic challenger Brad Schneider to pull or correct a campaign commercial Dold claims distorts his political record.

Schneider isn’t budging, however.

Dold, who paints himself as a moderate and has distanced himself from the conservative Tea Party, attacked the ad during a joint 10th District candidate interview last week at the Daily Herald’s headquarters in Arlington Heights.

“The Houston Chronicle actually corrected that, and I’m calling on my opponent to actually take down that ad because I’m not a Tea Party loyalist,” said Dold, of Kenilworth.

Hi tramp96. Yeah, that "Benghazi thing", is a pain for the President. As far as the Electoral count goes, it does depend on what poll you are looking at. I wish the states would all do what I believe Maine and Nebraska do, and that is, award them proportionally. I hate what happened in 2000, and would hate for that to happen the other way too. It should be up to the popular vote, in this day and age.

As it stands now, the President may win the "Electoral" vote, while Gov. Romney may win the popular vote, of course things can change, but it reminds me of the year 2000, except things would be the opposite.

Early polling of debate performance, from CBS news, question, who won or did better in the debate(question put to a group of independent voters), --Obama 37%, Romney 30%, a tie 33%. So it was pretty close.

Much better performance by the President. Will be interesting to see how the polls react. Romney was pretty good too.

Hi tramp96, yes some of what you say I believe, too much govt. can get in the way . But there always is the question of BALANCE between govt. and development in a free market or capitalist system. There is also the question of fairness which I think richteas suggested in his post#26. Anyways, these are all good points being made here. It's nice to have these discussions as long as we all keep it civil. Take care.

Whether it's by grotesque distortion of the Facts, or one of Many Forms of Voter Suppression, or Intimidating Voters at the polls, Republicans will stop at nothing to Steal the Election. Knowing that IF they ever presented the American People with Truly Factual Policies, backed up with Real and Honest Numbers, they know that their 'We Want Our Cake and To Eat Yours Too' Plans for America would be rejected by much larger numbers than are presently doing so.

When Romney is asked, "Is it fair that a Worker making only $50,000. per/yr. pays a higher tax rate than you?" He responds with "Yes, because with Capital Gains being taxed at a lower rate, it Encourages Economic Growth."

Yes, he pulls out and uses That Tired Old Line yet again.
First, IF it DID encourage Economic Growth AND Achieved it, the line MAY have some validity to it. But far too often, the ONLY thing that happens with the savings, is it's placed into some Off Shore Savings Account For Tax Evading Purposes. (one more case of 'wanting their cake.')
Secondly, after 30 years of using that line, and 'Trickle Down Economics', just How Many More Years IS that Worker, suppose to keep paying His and Your Taxes? Might Not That Worker desire to "Stimulate" the Economy Also?
But you want him to keep paying the higher rate so you can 'Possibly Stimulate Economic Growth'? (yes, just keep on eating the Workers Cake, while you save yours in some Off Shore Account!)

And you say you hate Socialism....

The Republicans have Mastered Their Own Version of it! We Pay For Them!
So they can sit around doing nothing But, making money!
Heck, many of them never have to actually WORK a day in their life.
Mitts been holding 'positions' only because he feels IT would be good for his enormous ego. What other reason could he possibly have, for Wanting To Be President?

Hi tramp96, I made that statement in my post #10, meaning this,Romney and Ryan have shown that actual facts and numbers are not important.They've shown that the current thinking of the Republican party , unlike that of 30-40 years ago, is out of real ideas, it's trickle down again, it is afraid of profound thought ,and that it will taylor the facts to fit its own unreal version of reality, wether we are talking the economy,taxes, abortion, foreign policy, social security, or medicare. By the way, I am NOT enjoying the high gas prices. Just as I didn't enjoy the even higher gas prices we endured in the summer of 2008, under President Bush. (National average highest under president Bush was$ 4.12 a gallon, under this president, so far,$3.96.) (Source GasBuddy.com).

Quoting originalLT:
Well, if you call Obama an "empty suit", than one might call Romney and Ryan, "empty heads"!
Quoting tramp96:
Why do you make that claim?

primarily because they appear to be soul-LESS beings,

Paul Ryan: Socialism Must Be Destroyed, and by "Socialism" I Mean Things Like Social Security, Medicare, Food Stamps, and Unemployment Insurance

But, for confirmation of their intellectual infirmity, one need only review the incongruent arithmetic in the Ryan budget and the Romney tax plan. The math doesn't add up in either one--according to NON-PARTISAN review.


Your turn,
Quoting tramp96:
What is your view concerning the massive amount of debt the empty suit has accumulated.

Why do you make that claim?
Enough of the name-calling, "empty suit"; hyperbole, "massive debt"; and mis-information, "has accumulated." Refute the facts.

Then tell us,
Why would a member of the IBEW support those who want to END ALL Collective Bargaining and Workers' Rights?

Quoting tramp96:
The debate showed that Obama is nothing without his teleprompter or the press to protect him. Empty suit.
I'm sure my ban is coming for daring to voice opposition to the lefty in charge here.
47 million people on food stamps the dems sure know how to ru(i)n a country.
What is your view concerning the massive amount of debt the empty suit has accumulated.

Hi "T", yes what you said about Romney is true, but I still feel the next debate is crucial to the President. He must forcefully and clearly make his points, and refute Romney's ideas and claims. As I alluded to yesterday, he and his advisors should read your Blog to make his points!!
