Here comes the landslide
The Hill [Washington DC], by Dick Morris

Original Article

Posted By:Dreadnought, 10/31/2012 9:02:20 AM

Voters have figured out that President Obama has no message, no agenda and not even much of an explanation for what he has done over the past four years. His campaign is based entirely on persuading people that Mitt Romney is a uniquely bad man, entirely dedicated to the rich, ignorant of the problems of the average person. As long as he could run his negative ads, the campaign at least kept voters away from the Romney bandwagon. But once we all met Mitt Romney for three 90-minute debates, we got to know him — and to like him. He was not the monster Obama depicted, but a reasonable

I saw obamas Calif ad and it was full of lies. It said he created over 5,000,000 jobs!!

Unemployment in Los Angeles is over 11% (forget the fake number from obama/Jerry Brown) and near 40% in the Central Valley.

From your fingers to God's ears, Mr. Morris.

On a side note, I watched Morris' twitter feed during the debate, and he was very, very accurate in how he believed the debates would play out in the polls and people's reaction to them.

Let's get out and vote, and make it happen!

The ONLY "kiss of death" out here is the one that is being planted on obama and his leftist-criminal-enterprise-administration by intelligent voters, unlike the kool-aid-drinking-demonrats who put obama in the W.H. I agree with #2, and say thank you, Dick Morris for your positive articles. Unlike sites like huffpo and the "kos", where it seems "some" have wandered over from to take a few last potshots at Mitt Romney..Sad. Looks like "some" just don't want to face reality. After Nov 6, they won't have a choice. Go, Romney/Ryan!

I'm hopeful. Almost every poll shows Romney with a lead, but a small lead (except Gallup). Obama's gameplan appears to be winning the electoral college while losing the popular vote - an awfully risky gameplan for an incumbent.

Sorry, I agree with above posters. Dick Morris is consistently wrong. He makes big, bold statements and he is rarely correct.

He did predict an Obama in ... with a few days to go in the campaign and MSM in full campaign mode.

A landslide? Let's all just get to the polls, shall we? And pray.

Morris has a mixed track record, but I believe him to be mostly correct on Romney, and believe him to be correct on the wretched strategy advanced by missie barack.
I'm not so sure on the senate races. It would be nice to see the senate go republican, and with a new leader in the senate. Mitch McConnell is not my choice.

The biggest reason that I believe that Romney will out-perform all the polls is due to the underlying sampling rates between GOP and Democrats.

Many left-leaning polls use the 2008 turnout percentages, which had Democrats +8% over GOP. I think Rasmussen uses and average between 2004 and 2008 (could be wrong, but he does not totally rely on 2008), which is why his numbers tend to trend higher for the GOP.

But there are 2 reasons that I see that are overlooked by the pollsters which lay the foundation for a surprisingly big Romney win. The first is that GOP registrations since 2008 have been much greater than for the Democrats, with many crossover registrations (high single digit advantage I believe). So there are more GOP and fewer Dems today than in 2008.

The second reason is that there is a huge motivation gap among the Left between 2008 and today. Then, it was the End of Bush and the election of the first black president. Record numbers of Democrats turned out to vote as enthusiasm was at an all time high. I expect that enthusiasm to be all but gone. None of the polls take motivation into consideration, other than a soft, "likely to vote" assessment (which is not exactly the same).

The mainstream media never predicts a Republican sweep. I remember how they were all stunned in 2010 and in 1994.

In spite of what Morris says, we know what Obama has done for the past four years: Campaign, fundraise, play golf, travel, and send Moochie on expensive vacations and spending sprees; All on the taxpayer's money.

From a gut standpoint...the 2006 election was an indicator of 2008... 2010 was the greatest congressional blowout since the 1920's...and what has changed...more debt, Solyndra, Fast and Furious,unemployment through the roof and now Benghazigate ...your gut has to tell you that this won't be close because of the state of the country

The 538 guy in The New York Times just increased Obama's chance of winning the election to something like 78%.

Somebody is going to have major egg on his face next week. I hope it's the 538 guy.

Whoa! Morris is not exactly out on a limb, all alone, in his prediction. So why dismiss it just because he says it?

Sometimes I believe we are the lemmings: If he says it, it is true. But if (another) he says it, it has to be false. Even if both are saying the same thing.

There is no logic there.

I love the rhetoric here. But, the truth is, we are in a furious struggle for the future of our nation, our heritage and our freedom. We are up against some of the most entrenched socialistic goons since the Russian Revolution. Our main stream, core media giants have almost all been co-opted by the fiercest brand of the socialists, and peopled by millions of Stalin's infamous "useful idiots". Our educations systems have been wholly absorbed by them, including the vast majority of teachers who have tremendous influence over the minds of our youth. This election- this very one- above all the others in our entire history, including the 1860 election that led to the Great American Civil War, is by far the most critical to the very survival of our future as a free people. The leftists know it as their one, last chance in a long time to finally crush our freedom and our Constructional rights. They will fight like demons and will refuse acceptance of defeat. This is not over. Not by a very long shot!

Polls, schmolls. Remember 2010 for the latest reminder.

This is about electing a president. The winner is always determined by two considerations:

1) our wallet

2) which candidate makes us feel better

I've placed my bet on Intrade.

My son has finished his Eagle Project, but he is waiting to finish the paper work hoping that Mitt wins. He doesn't want Obummer's name his Eagle Certificate!
My older son had no choice in the matter. Obummer's name is on his! Jimmy won't frame it because of that. I don't know if we can get one without Obummer's name on it? If we can, Jimmy will be happy to do that!
If Mitt wins, Brian will wait until Romney is sworn in for his Board of Review! But if, and God forbid, Obummer wins, he will make a request that Obummer's name not appear his certificate!

Yup. Ol' Dick is always wrong. Except those times he ticked off one by one which candidates were done in the primaries. And of course those times when he gave Clinton the advise that got him re-elected and turned his congressional defeat into a presidential plus. (welfare reform)

Me 'n Old Dick aren't on each other's Christmas Card lists, but he did sit next to me in the Medford Oregon airport earlier in the year. When we made eye contact he instantly knew he'd sat next to a brain-picker. Before I could form a question his phone rang and he exited the area. I was still a Newt supporter at the time and wanted to know his thoughts.

As far as Romney goes, I see signs that he could be the best President (and best person to be President) in my lifetime... an even greater contrast after following the hands-down worst in both catagories.

USAID documents cite Hillary

Washington Times, by Guy Taylor    Original Article
Posted By: Dreadnought- 4/20/2014 10:21:24 PM     Post Reply
In internal government documents with potential repercussions for the 2016 presidential election, top officials at the U.S. Agency for International Development repeatedly cited former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton for setting into motion a policy to waive restrictions on who could receive U.S. aid in Afghanistan, resulting in millions of dollars in U.S. funds going directly into the coffers of Afghan ministries known to be rife with corruption. References to Mrs. Clinton’s role in the policy first appeared in a November 2012 USAID action memo, which outlined how U.S. officials made a “strategic foreign-assistance

If “Meet the Press” moderator David Gregory were a guest on his own show, he knows the kinds of questions he’d be asked. Why have your ratings been falling? Is the show in trouble? Is your job in trouble? “I get it,” says Gregory, the face of the longest-running TV program in American history (founded: 1947). “Do I want to be number one in the ratings? Every week I want to be number one, and we fight like hell to get there. And it’s tough right now. It’s a fight.” He adds, “I’m not just trying to sell you — well, I am trying to sell you — but I’m not going to B.S. you, either. Yeah, it’s hard. I see what our challenges are.

Long-term unemployed struggle
to find — and keep — jobs

For the long-term unemployed, finding a job is hard — but keeping one may be even harder. New research tracking people who have been out of work for six months or longer found that 23 percent of them landed a job within a few months of the study. But a year later, more than a third of that group was unemployed again or out of the labor force altogether. The findings are the latest in a bleak but growing body of literature suggesting long-term unemployment has become a trap that is difficult to escape. Economists say that means the long-term unemployed could become a permanent underclass, left behind by the nation’s broader

Social Security stops trying

The Social Security Administration announced Monday that it will immediately cease efforts to collect on taxpayers’ debts to the government that are more than 10 years old. The action comes after The Washington Post reported that the government was seizing state and federal tax refunds that were on their way to about 400,000 Americans who had relatives who owed money to Social Security. In many cases, the people whose refunds were intercepted had never heard of any debt, and the debts dated as far back as the middle of the past century. “I have directed an immediate halt to further

Democrats Lose Two More Special

Democrats have had a recurring problem in special elections this year: Their voters aren’t turning out. If a weak economy and continued Obamacare problems persist, the November elections could be a disaster for Democrats. Last week, Democrats lost two special elections they weren’t planning to. Arlington, Va., is a classic wealthy ObamaTown, filled with government workers and limousine liberals. Mitt Romney won only 29 percent of the vote in 2012. But last Tuesday, Democrats lost their first election for the five-member Arlington County Board in 15 years when John Vihstadt, a Republican running as an independent, won a vacancy on

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said little as federal agents seized and then released cattle last week from the Bundy ranch, but there is little doubt that the highly charged episode was threatening to become a political headache for the Nevada Democrat. The Bureau of Land Management is headed by former longtime Reid aide Neil Kornze, who was confirmed by the Senate as BLM director on Tuesday, just as federal authorities descended on the cattle ranch outside Mesquite, Nev. Mr. Kornze issued a statement Saturday saying that the bureau would return the cattle and withdraw its agents from the ranch

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

In a speech earlier this week, Lisa O.

Monaco’s full, prepared text is available here. She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15. Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings. Interestingly, the Harvard grad failed to mention the religion or the motive of brothers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after
