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 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

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.

Contempt and the IRS

The House Oversight Committee has voted to hold former IRS subpotentate Lois Lerner in contempt of Congress, while the House Ways and Means Committee has referred her case to the Justice Department for criminal prosecution. The facts in the case suggest very strongly that Ms. Lerner has earned the contempt of the American people as well as criminal prosecution to the full extent of the law. The question of whether Justice will do justice now rests with the Obama administration, in service to which Ms. Lerner organized and oversaw the repression of nonprofit activists under color of IRS authority.

With the rocky rollout of his health care law in a post-deadline lull, President Obama will move this week to shake up his health care team, accepting the resignation of Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius and tapping his budget director as a troubleshooting replacement, the White House confirmed Thursday. Mrs. Sebelius, a former Kansas governor who has served as HHS secretary for Mr. Obama’s entire tenure, was the president’s point person as his signature law stumbled out of the blocks in October.

A few weeks ago, with no notice, the U.S. government intercepted Mary Grice’s tax refunds from both the IRS and the state of Maryland. Grice had no idea that Uncle Sam had seized her money until some days later, when she got a letter saying that her refund had gone to satisfy an old debt to the government — a very old debt. When Grice was 4, back in 1960, her father died, leaving her mother with five children to raise. Until the kids turned 18, Sadie Grice got survivor benefits from Social Security to help feed and clothe them.

Two months ago, a petition bearing more than 110,000 signatures was delivered to The Post, demanding a ban on any article questioning global warming. The petition arrived the day before publication of my column, which consisted of precisely that heresy. The column ran as usual. But I was gratified by the show of intolerance because it perfectly illustrated my argument that the left is entering a new phase of ideological agitation — no longer trying to win the debate but stopping debate altogether, banishing from public discourse any and all opposition. The proper word for that attitude is totalitarian. It

Attorney General Eric Holder must be suffering from a sort of amnesia. He is upset at supposed divisiveness and rudeness directed at him when testifying before Congress, and suggests not too subtly that he and President Obama have been accorded inordinately harsh treatment (fill in the blanks why). Aside from the fact that he seemed to have relished the combat with Representative Gohmert in quite unprofessional tones (“you don’t want to go there, buddy, alright?”/ “good luck with your asparagus”), he seems to forget what former attorney general Alberto Gonzales once endured both in the liberal media and before Democrats

When Chief Justice John Roberts rewrote ObamaCare from the bench in order to save it, most of the ramifications were immediately apparent. But there was one aspect of the stunt that as a member of the Supreme Court Roberts should have been sensitive to: precedent. Having caved to a public intimidation campaign from the president and his congressional allies (as well as the media) Roberts signaled that the way to get a conservative justice to discard his better judgment and rule against constitutional law was to impugn the court’s reputation in the public square.

Sen. Mark Begich has said repeatedly that he thinks President Obama is wrong about a host of policies, whether on oil drilling, the military or the environment. Begich also has made it perfectly clear that he has no interest in having his fellow Democrat out to his home state of Alaska, saying earlier this year that he doesn’t “care to have him campaign for me.” But that doesn’t mean he’s not looking for the president’s help. Begich has in fact submitted a long wish list to the Obama administration for agency decisions that he thinks would boost his reelection chances.

It can’t come too soon, because Buckley expressly ignored the First Amendment’s injunction that “Congress shall make no law .?.?. abridging the freedom of speech.” Instead of free speech, we now have regulated speech that has ensnarled elections in a web of bizarre and opaque rules.

A new review is questioning the effectiveness of two key drugs enlisted in the fight against influenza and in turn the investments by governments to stockpile the drugs in the event of a global flu outbreak. The antiviral drugs Tamiflu (oseltamivir) and Relenza (zanamivir ) are commonly used to treat influenza in healthy adults and children. In the case of Tamiflu, the drug does shorten symptoms of influenza by about half a day - as the manufacturer suggests - but there is insufficient evidence to support claims that it reduces hospital admissions or serious complications, such as confirmed pneumonia or
