No more Mr. No Drama Obama: POTUS cries…while Romney beams

The Twitchy Staff says get out the Kleenex. The man formerly known as "No Drama Obama" pulled out all the stops  -- and unleashed some tear drops -- in Iowa tonight. We didn’t see them fall when our murdered diplomatic staff came home from Benghazi in coffins. We didn’t see them during Obama’s tour of areas devastated by Hurricane Sandy. And we didn’t see them over the last four years of dismal jobs report releases. But with his pride and the election hanging in the balance, the formerly diffident president has turned on the spigot.

 
His fans ate it up . . .

Good Grief!  CNN Poll shows a Romney-Obama tie with a Democrat+11 sample

 CNN said the race is “all tied up” and Jim Hoft says, "Really CNN?… Really?"

CNN reports:

It’s all tied up, according to a new national poll released two days before the presidential election.
 
And the CNN/ORC International survey not only indicates a dead heat in the race for the White House, but also on almost every major indicator of President Barack Obama and Republican nominee Mitt Romney that was tested in the poll.

Then on page 29 of the polling results we find out they over sampled Democrats by 11%.

In the poll 41% describe themselves as Democrats, 29% describe themselves as Independent and 30% describe themselves as Republican.

That’s why it’s all tied up.

Obama's November blunder

John Hinderaker says one of Barack Obama's problems is that he is not a very accomplished public speaker. When he veers away from his teleprompter, which you pretty much have to do on the stump, his instincts are poor and he tends to get into trouble. That happened yesterday when Obama said to a crowd that had just booed Mitt Romney, "No, no, no -- don't boo, vote. Vote. Voting is the best revenge." That was a dumb thing to say on several levels, and it exposed an ugly aspect of Obama's personality. He really does think that opposing him is somehow dirty pool, and that "revenge" is the appropriate treatment for those who fail to bow to the mighty Barack.

The Romney campaign was quick to pounce. They produced this ad:

Byron York writes, "Obama campaign struggles to explain 'revenge' remark." The campaign's purported explanation, which tried to tie Obama's gaffe to a controversial Romney ad, simply wasn't true. Obama's campaign manager ludicrously tried to tie the "revenge" line to Romney by tweeting, "The Romney campaign's message today is revenge, ours is the President's plan for the middle class." Revenge, of course, was Obama's message, not Romney's.
 
Obama's blunder isn't likely to tip the scales with many voters, but in the closing days of the campaign it serves as a useful reminder of Obama's dark side.

Obama's vision for America: fear and revenge

OrthodoxNet.org says the The real character of a man is made manifest in times of crisis. In the final days of this presidential election Barack Hussein Obama is confirming that his vision of America is based mostly on Fear and Revenge!

During a campaign stop at Springfield High School in Ohio on Friday, Nov. 2, 2012, when his Democrat supporters booed the mention of Mitt Romney and the Republican party, Obama encouraged his supporters to:

“No, no, no. Don’t boo. Vote,” Obama told a crowd in Springfield, Ohio. “Voting is the best revenge.

HT: The Hill

This is continuing the same class warfare theme full of fear and hysteria the Obama team has promoted throughout this election cycle. Just last week, vice-president Joe Biden said to an audience with hundreds of minorities in attendance that Romney and the Republicans want to put people “back in chains.”

“They’ve said it. Every Republican’s voted for it. Look at what they value and look at their budget and what they’re proposing,” an animated Biden said. “Romney wants to let the—he said in the first 100 days, he’s going to let the big banks once again write their own rules – unchain Wall Street.

They’re going to put y’all back in chains. He’s said he’s going to do nothing about stopping the practice of outsourcing.”

Not to be outdone, Valerie Jarret — often described as “Obama’s Brain”, and the figure whose second story West Wing office has been described by political insiders as the true Oval Office of the Obama White House — is letting it be known that if Barack Obama secures election victory next week, there may be, quite literally, hell to pay for those who opposed him.

“After we win this election, it’s our turn. Payback time. Everyone not with us is against us and they better be ready because we don’t forget. The ones who helped us will be rewarded, the ones who opposed us will get what they deserve.

There is going to be hell to pay. Congress won’t be a problem for us this time. No election to worry about after this is over and we have two judges ready to go.”

HT: The Ulsterman Report

Obama campaign tries (and fails) to explain "revenge" remarks

Becket Adams is reporting that Barack Obama during a campaign speech in Ohio yesterday encouraged supporters to use their vote to get back at Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney, TheBlaze reported.

“Don’t boo, vote! Vote! Voting’s the best revenge!” he said.

Unsurprisingly, the Romney campaign was quick to seize on the president’s “ugly and small-minded moment,” as the Washington Examiner’s Byron York puts is, to draw a contrast between the two campaigns.

“Yesterday, the president said something you may have heard by now that I think surprised a lot of people. Speaking to an audience, he said, ‘You know, voting is the best revenge,’ ’’ Romney said. “He told his supporters, ‘Vote for revenge.’ Vote for revenge? Let me tell you what I’d like to tell you: Vote for love of country.”

As these are the final moments of both campaigns, now is the time to make a rousing and inspiring closing argument. What was the president thinking?

Surely, the Obama camp has an explanation for “revenge.” They do. Well, they say they do.

Apparently, Obama’s off-the-cuff remarks were made while he was discussing Romney’s “scare tactics” in Ohio.

The GOP candidate is “frightening workers in Ohio into thinking, falsely, that they’re not going to have a job,” Obama campaign official Jen Psaki said, according to a White House pool report.

“And the message [Obama] was sending is if you don’t like the policies, if you don’t like the plan that Gov. Romney is putting forward, if you think that’s a bad deal for the middle class, then you can go to the voting booth and cast your ballot. It’s nothing more complicated than that,” she added.

Mr. York is quick to note the glaring problem in this supposed explanation:

The problem is, the president was actually not speaking in the context of Romney’s highly-controversial ads about bailed-out Chrysler adding production of Jeeps in China. In fact, Obama had not said a word about the Jeep controversy when he said “revenge.” His speech had touched on Hurricane Sandy, on the progress the American economy has made in the last few years, on his national security accomplishments, on the choice Americans will make on November 6, on Bill Clinton’s record — on a lot of things, but not on Jeep.

Indeed, it took the president six paragraphs after talking about revenge to mention Jeep. Simply put, at no point before telling his supporters to get “revenge” did President Obama say anything about “scare tactics,” Jeep, or false ads.

Final Thought: Considering how close we are to the election, and knowing what we know about the context of Obama's speech, what an odd thing to blurt out. What was he thinking?

The Romney campaign’s message today is revenge, ours is the President’s plan for the middle class.I’ll take that contrast any day.

— Jim Messina (@Messina2012) November 3, 2012

Apparently, words no longer have any meaning and campaign managers expect us to forget things that were said less than 24 hours ago.

Romney wins in a landslide (at least in Israel) -- what it means

Abraham Katsman is reporting that the presidential election results are in. Well, at least the votes from Americans in Israel. Not one to keep readers in suspense, I’ll reveal the most important numbers up front: Gov. Mitt Romney received 85%–85%!–of the vote; President Obama managed only 14.3%. This, according to exit polling just released by iVoteIsrael, the non-partisan group promoting and facilitating voting by U.S. citizens currently in Israel. Their statistics reveal some fascinating results. More importantly, these results have implications for the outcome of next week’s election. (Again, not to keep you in suspense: those implications favor the Republicans.)

First, that 85% should be seen in a broader perspective. Israel has become a “red state” through such a solidly Republican vote. In fact, if Israel were in the United States, it would be the “reddest” state in the entire country. Redder, even, than Utah, or Wyoming or Oklahoma. Significantly redder. That should be a startling development for the Democrats, who once owned the pro-Israel vote.

Second, that 14% for Obama is 40% lower than the vote he received from Israel in 2008. That should worry his campaign. Even if his support in the Jewish community in America has eroded by only half that much, he may have trouble clearing the 60% mark. An interesting historical note: for almost a century, every Republican candidate who received 30% or more of the Jewish vote was victorious -- and it looks like Romney will win well over 30%.

Third, the total vote from Israel -- 80,000 ballots -- is huge. That’s about 25% of all ballots cast from all expat communities combined, which together have 20 times as many Americans as Israel has. It also represents 50% of eligible voters in Israel, a participation rate fully ten times that of Americans in the rest of the world. That’s an incredible rate considering the cumbersome process of registration and absentee ballot application and mailing faced by each individual Israel-based voter. It’s also more than double the number of ballots ever cast before from Israel.

That suggests that the Israel-based voters -- who overwhelmingly voted Romney -- were unusually highly motivated to vote. Compare that to the 5% participation rate in the rest of the world -- voters who lean towards Obama -- and quite a contrast emerges between the relative levels of motivation to vote between supporters of each candidate. This appears to be an extreme example something U.S. polls now show: higher motivation to vote corresponds to higher likelihood of voting for Romney. And motivation correlates with turnout. That is a doubly good sign for Republicans.

Not surprisingly, the primary motivating issues in the Israel-based vote are Israel-related issues, such as candidates’ policies on Israeli defense and security, the American-Israeli relationship, the status of Jerusalem, the peace process, and policies regarding Iran and its nuclear program. 82% of respondents considered such issues most important, and 88% of those voted for Romney. If voters with such concerns so heavily favor Romney among Israel-based Americans, there may be a corresponding higher-than-expected Romney vote among U.S.-based voters concerned with the same issues.

A fourth interesting takeaway from the data is that even though the Israel-based electorate is pretty evenly divided between Democrats and Republicans, huge numbers of Democrats apparently crossed over to vote for Romney. On top of that, it seems that Obama has “reverse coattails”–even in Congressional and Senate races, 68% of Israel-based voters cast ballots for the Republican.

In fact, among those who still voted for Congressional Democrats, half cast their Presidential ballots for Romney. That may be a bad omen for Obama’s ability to hold onto pro-Israel Democrats in America. We in Israel already saw developing anecdotal evidence of this Democratic defection, highlighted by the very public endorsement of Romney by the former Chair of Democrats Abroad Israel, and former Obama voters working the Romney phone banks.

Fifth, there was heavy participation from swing states. 7,500 Israel-based Floridians voted; another 3,500 voted in Ohio; and 3,500 more voted in Pennsylvania. Those numbers themselves could prove significant, but they have additional impact: Americans in Israel have a unique, front-row perspective on how any President’s Israel policies are working out. As a result, their opinions on the respective candidates’ policies have extra credibility. And those Israel-based Americans all have friends, family and communities back home. If the vote from the front-row is so lopsidedly for Romney, that can only mean one thing for the direction it will influence the vote back in America.

What does it all mean? In the short-run, this is all great news for Romney and the Republicans. But in the longer run, it is healthier for both Israel and America when strong pro-Israel support is solidly bipartisan. Such a one-sided vote as we just had means that something is out of whack. In fact, several high-profile Democrats have complained that Israel support is becoming a partisan, Republican issue.

This vote, however, highlights what those complaining Democrats are missing. It’s not that the Republicans have somehow driven a wedge between the Democrats and the pro-Israel community; it’s that the Democrats, led by President Obama, have drifted far enough away from their once-solid support of Israel that even life-long Democrats are crossing the aisle.

Here in Israel, of course, support for a strong American-Israeli relationship is very much a bipartisan issue. That’s why, across the political spectrum of Americans in Israel, Republicans and Democrats alike are voting for Mitt Romney for President. 85% of them.

You'll never guess what happened to military ballots mailed from Afghanistan

Yep. They were "lost."
 
Doug Ross says he's sure Eric Holder will launch a thorough investigation any second now:

Postal officials are investigating the apparent loss of some absentee ballots mailed from Afghanistan.

A contractor who sent an email to Military Times said his county elections clerk in Texas had not received his ballot or his co-worker's ballot by Thursday, although they mailed the ballots Sept. 27. "The Bagram Airfield Army post office placed Express mail tracking numbers on them, placed the ballots in an orange 'Ballot Box,' and probably in a dedicated mail bag."

"If our ballots got lost, how many other ballots are lost as well?" he wrote.

Military Postal Service Agency officials are working with the U.S. Postal Service to resolve the issue, said James Clark, chief of the operations division of the Military Postal Service Agency. It's unknown whether other ballots may have been affected.

The contractor stated the tracking information shows their ballots are still in Bahrain, and have been sitting there since Sept. 30.

Once again, the votes of our best and brightest are suppressed, while the Obama administration tacitly encourages illegal immigrants, felons and the dead to vote Democrat.

You know what we need to do on November 6th. And hopefully the margin of victory will be sufficient to represent a complete and total repudiation of the Democrat Party.

Why was there no October Surprise?

Zombie asks, "Where was the October Surprise?"

Almost everyone anticipated this year's "October Surprise" -- some last-minute, unexpected, shocking scandal to rock the presidential election and derail one of the candidates. But it never appeared. In an era of everything-but-the-kitchen-sink gutterball politics, this mysterious absence of any major scandal was itself noteworthy. How could nothing have happened?

Sure, there was Hurricane Sandy. But that doesn't count. Sandy was a natural disaster that dominated the headlines for a few days, but it wasn't a scandal. And yes, there was Benghazi. But that happened in early September, and it wasn't so much a political scandal uncovered by partisan operatives as it was the umpteenth example of Obama's incompetence. Whatever Benghazi blowback he's gotten damaging his election chances are entirely his own responsibility for bungling an international crisis. So, no, neither one of those counted as an October Surprise.
 
Which left many people scratching their heads. Why wasn't there one? For either candidate?
 
In Mitt Romney's case, the answer is pretty obvious: He's squeaky clean. His entire adult life has been like a boring treatise on Mormon moral rectitude. His political career has long been an open book -- moderate, bipartisan, essentially uneventful. The Democrats have tried to squeeze some droplets of outrage over Romney's tenure at Bain Capital, but those attacks came earlier in the summer and turned out to be extremely slim pickin's. There are no skeletons in Romney's closet, otherwise we would have heard about them.
 
But in Barack Obama's case, the situation is reversed: Everything he's ever done is scandalous. The reason there was no October Surprise for Obama is that we're all scandaled out. Anyone's who been paying attention since 2008 has literally been in paralytic shock every single day. We spent October 2012 exactly as we've spent every month of the last four years: Our jaws on the floor, aghast, stupefied, unable to breathe. Almost every single thing Obama has done since he's been in the national spotlight could have been and should have been a career-ending October Surprise. But the ObamaMedia, as we all know, has devoted itself to protecting him.
 
Not a day has gone by since Obama took office when I didn't learn of some fresh outrage and say Oh. My. God. But we've been traumatized so often that over time the scandals have all blurred together and fused into a single red-hot thought: Please let this nightmare end.
 
A complete recounting of Obama's shoulda-been October Surprises would fill a book, an encyclopedia, an entire library. But I think this is a good time to initiate a crowd-sourced list of everything Obama has done since 2008 (and every fact about his earlier life that emerged since 2008) which you thought was scandalous, shocking or outrageous. Just for the record, let's remind the world that every freakin' day for the last four years has been an October Surprise.
 
I'll get the ball rolling with a few scandalous deeds and facts which occur to me at the moment, but this list will primarily come from you, the readers. In the comments section below, mention anything and everything that you believe should have ruined Obama politically (if the media had been doing its job). From the big to the small, from the recent to the distant, dig deep in your memory and just let it all out, like political primal scream therapy.
 
I'll continuously update the list as best as I can to include whatever gets mentioned by the commenters.
 
Ready? Let the collective scream begin!

Here is "The complete list of Barack Obama's scandals, misdeeds, crimes and blunders" (cursor down).

It is overwhelming to read what Obama has done -- or not done -- when it's put into a simple list.

If you thought the Bush/Kerry and Bush/Gore elections were contentious, you ain't seen nuthin' yet!  This election may go down as the most contested election ever if the numbers are close enough.  On the flip side of that, if it truly turns out to be a landslide victory for Romney, I don't believe the American people would stand for those types of shenanigans.  We'll just have to wait and see.

"Keep The Change"

Well, we heard from Stevie Wonder (above), now hear "Keep The Change," a catchy little Country Rock tune penned by Rayburn, a band hailing from Little Rock, Ark. Recorded at Ocean Way studios in Nashville, Tenn. by Grammy award-winning engineer Ben Fowler (Lynyrd Skynyrd, Rascal Flatts, Hank Williams Jr.), "Keep The Change" is an up-tempo number that perfectly captures the current mood in a moment of our country’s history where change is on everyone’s mind.

This tune punches and tickles at the same time, using upbeat rhythms that drive the song forward while lyrically exploring some very pointed views on the powers that be. With a thought-provoking lyrical take on a certain well-known political slogan, the song contains no objectionable language.
 
"Keep The Change" gets straight to the point, making use of upbeat rhythms and a catchy hook to drive home its message. The song is available for download for free here.

Lyrics here . . .

The presidential race is over, cue the conspiracy theories

Theo Caldwell says this race is over, but the conspiracy theories are about to begin. And, boy howdy, are things going to get ugly.
 
To wit, Mitt Romney will defeat Barack Obama for the presidency on November 6, after which there will be hysterical blowback. The election result is quantifiable, with Romney consistently leading in national tracking polls, finding a level at or above 50 percent in many, and closing the necessary gaps in swing states and among demographic groups. Greater evidence can be found, however, in Obama’s sour demeanor and the conduct of his campaign. What a mess.
 
Opinion-peddlers have noted that the Obama re-election effort has taken on the hallmarks of failed campaigns from previous cycles: scattershot messaging, flailing narratives, ad hominem attacks and joyless mockery. This was never going to work, and Democratic political veterans like Bob Beckel and Doug Schoen will likely admit as much once the polls are closed. Incurables like Alan Colmes and Maureen Dowd, however, will never let it go. And this latter stance -- that Obama’s defeat is somehow illegitimate -- will take hold in many, noisy quarters.
 
It is not only the politically interested who will adopt this view -- even casual observers will be sucked in. We often see leftist orthodoxy morph into popular convention. This is because, while there are some smart people on the left, it requires almost no thinking to be a liberal. Simply absorb the political sentiments you hear in almost any Hollywood film, or on most any television program or newscast and, presto, you’re in. Repeat these nostrums at school or work and you will be rewarded. Augmented by the emotional satisfaction of the left’s perpetual righteous indignation, this dynamic becomes self-fulfilling and very cozy.
 
And it’s that snorting indignation warming up in the bullpen that augurs an ugly autumn. After Obama loses, every bellyacher you know will take to the worldwide interwebs to blame the Bilderbergs, Bain Capital, Big Oil, Brigham Young -- basically anyone but Obama himself. It will be insufferable. Theories will be all over the map, mutually contradicting one another, but advanced with furious certainty. Again, we see this often. The showerless outrage of the left knows no bounds, and it is impervious to reason.
 
Whether Romney’s margin of victory is large or small will matter little to the tone of these plaints. Certainly, a resounding win will foreclose the Democrats’ propensity to steal close elections through after-the-fact chicanery (presented as Exhibit A: Al Franken is a senator) but, for Obama apologists, a blowout will simply evince a wider conspiracy, and darker depths of American ignorance, bigotry and credulousness.
 
This sort of heads-we-win-tails-you’re-a-cheating-moron default is endemic to Democrats and emblematic of the international left. The last time a fabulously wealthy politician from Massachusetts ran for president, he lost fair and square. But John Kerry had the good fortune to be a Democrat (and had the further good fortune to marry into money -- twice -- making him several times wealthier than the self-made Romney), which is why California Sen. Barbara Boxer, among others, made it her business to overturn the electoral results in Ohio owing to voting "irregularities" she knew, just knew, had occurred. Britain’s Daily Mirror, meanwhile, responded to George W. Bush’s 2004 defeat of Kerry by asking, "How can 59,054,087 people be so DUMB?"

I hope this guy is correct about the Romney win -- but take nothing for granted -- vote! -- and bring a friend.

My own forecast is a Romney win, followed by a repeat of Florida 2000 -- except in several states.

Romney gives Obama the Chavez-Castro-Che treatment in Spanish

The Romney campaign aired this Spanish-language ad bashing Obama over Mariela Castro, Che Guevara and Hugo Chavez starting on 10/30/12 in the Miami-Fort Lauderdale media market. The next day, Romney spoke in Miami about uniting the nation. For a translation, click here . . .

You're fired!

Oliver North says when Thomas Jefferson, John Adams, Benjamin Franklin, Robert Livingston and Roger Sherman sat down to draft the Declaration of Independence, they began with a "Bill of Particulars" against King George III. They accused the monarch of "repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States." Now, 236 years later, "We the People" are about to decide whom we should hire as our chief executive and commander in chief. It's an appropriate time to review the grievances of our Founding Fathers — and examine the offenses committed by our present head of state.

Jefferson and his colleagues determined that the king had "refused his Assent to Laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public Good." That's certainly relevant to the incumbent administration, which repeatedly has rejected all efforts by Congress to pass a budget as required by our Constitution.

The drafters found that the British monarch had "forbidden his Governors to pass Laws of immediate and pressing Importance, unless suspended in their Operation till his Assent should be obtained; and when so suspended, he (had) utterly neglected to attend to them." That sounds a lot like what happened when Gov. Jan Brewer and the Arizona Legislature passed a law to protect the citizens of said state from the depredations of illegal aliens crossing our borders.

Our nation's founders were likewise offended by the imperious manner in which the king had "obstructed the Administration of Justice." That charge is relevant to the Obama administration's willful decision in ordering firearms shipped to violent Mexican drug cartels in Operation Fast and Furious and then claiming executive privilege to withhold information about the activity from Congress.

Then there is the indictment against the king that he had "erected a Multitude of new Offices, and sent hither Swarms of Officers to harass our People, and eat out their Substance." But wait; isn't that what the Obama White House has done, with its czars, scores of executive orders to avoid legislative constraints, hundreds of new regulations, refusal to authorize new oil leases, and refusal to build the Keystone XL pipeline and save us billions in the cost of fuel?

In writing of the royal ruler, Jefferson and his colleagues determined that he had "combined with others to subject us to a Jurisdiction foreign to our Constitution, and unacknowledged by our Laws; giving his Assent to their Acts of pretended Legislation." How is that different from what the O-Team has done in surrendering our sovereignty and pandering to the unaccountable authority of the United Nations, which has pledged to "acknowledge" Shariah?

Those are just five of 27 offenses perpetrated by London's imperial regime more than two centuries ago, all deemed sufficient to demand the Declaration of Independence. Today there are even more charges that our founders could have levied in an updated "Bill of Particulars" against the governing authority in Washington:

By overspending and borrowing, HE has bankrupted our Treasury, created more national Debt than all his Predecessors combined and squandered our Children's Future by making us beholden to foreign Powers.

HE has expended public monies through executive Fiat to support Companies and Individuals that contribute to his political Campaigns. Can anyone say "Solyndra"?

HE has redefined marriage and enacted Rules and Regulations abridging the religious Liberties and Freedom of Conscience protected by the First Amendment of our Constitution by requiring church-affiliated Institutions to provide Insurance Coverage for Contraception and Abortions under Obamacare.

HE has bowed to foreign potentates, begged our Adversaries for Space and Time until after the Election, and apologized for the Blood and Treasure expended by brave Americans in offering Others the Hope of Freedom.

HIS regulations and policies have denied gainful Employment to more than 20 million able-bodied Citizens and made more than 46 million Americans dependent on government-provided Food Stamps.

HE publicly advocated an Arab Spring but abandoned Israel, our staunchest Ally in the Middle East; rejected Appeals to support the Aspirations of the Iranian People for free and fair Elections and refused to do Anything to deter the theocratic Regime in Tehran from acquiring nuclear Weapons.

HE declared an act of terrorism at Fort Hood, Texas, to be workplace violence, deceived the American People about how Osama bin Laden's Demise would end radical Islamist terror Attacks, failed to dispatch military Force to save Americans in Harm's way in Benghazi, Libya, and naively advocates a failed "lead from behind" foreign Policy.

For these and other Offenses, We the People find that it is time for us to hire a new President of the United States. Mr. Obama, you're fired.

Students [no longer] for Obama

Students for Obama say in the past four years, we have changed. We once supported President Obama. Obama made many good promises. Obama seemed non-partisan and willing to bring about change. He was charismatic. We were excited to see what would come of his administration. Sadly, Obama has failed us, instituting policies that have negatively affected us.

Because of this, Students For Obama has become Students No Longer For Obama. We have awakened to Obama's failures, and we feel that it is time for a change. It's time to allow someone else a chance in the Oval Office. Obama doesn't deserve four more years of reckless behavior.

CONTEST

We are hosting a video contest before the election on November sixth! Record a short video explaining why you supported Obama in the past, and why you don't any more.

Prizes for best videos include:

One first place award of $2,500.
