Not Exactly the Fight of the Century

Posted: October 7, 2012 at 10:30 am   /   Elections, Politics

As you all know, I hate pointing out that I was right.  I’m sure the cynics among you are saying to yourself, “I bet it pains him about as much as winning the state lottery.”  But what else can I say when I kept telling people to wait for the debate, and the smarty pants […]

Help make Hewitt’s prognostication a reality

Posted: October 6, 2012 at 2:45 pm   /   Elections, Politics

In “He Lied! He Lied! He Lied!”: The Left Responds To Obama’s Debate Disaster, Hugh Hewitt says, That’s because Wednesday night has the potential to be a “Black Swan” event for the campaign –something we have never seen before, an utter catastrophe for a candidate that lasts far beyond one day or news cycle, but enters […]

Polling bias against Republicans goes back a long way

Posted: October 6, 2012 at 11:45 am   /   Elections, Politics

We’ve been talking about it for a while now (see the links appended below): Polls, especially those contracted by mainstream media, are using unrealistic samples of Democrats and Republicans, thus producing results dramatically skewed against Mitt Romney and Republicans. It’s arguably more egregious during this election cycle—certainly the media’s naked, agenda-driven bias is—but in fact, […]

Some of Obama’s biggest debate whoppers

Posted: October 5, 2012 at 5:00 pm   /   Elections, Politics

Romney’s 47% Rule – My own Corollary Don’t waste your time reasoning with those who aren’t going to believe anything you say. For political and policy junkies like me, one of the remarkable  aspects of Wednesday night’s debate was the sheer number of things Obama said that just were not true.  I had to quit taking […]

Obama deserved to be beaten in the debate

Posted: October 4, 2012 at 10:00 am   /   Elections, Politics

By now, you have already heard. Mitt Romney trounced Barack Obama in the first presidential debate. No matter what happens from here on it, this debate set a new tone for the election. It introduced Romney to voters who are just now starting to pay attention, and it elevated him to presidential level. Based on […]

Even most liberals agree: Romney crushes Obama in first debate

Posted: October 4, 2012 at 8:15 am   /   Elections, Politics

Conservatives and Republicans, especially those who follow politics closely, knew that a lot was riding on this debate for Mitt Romney. In any population , those who pay close attention to politics are vastly outnumbered by those who don’t. Thus, Romney needed to introduce himself to America last night, most especially to low-information voters and […]

It’s the Morning After the First Debate, and I’m Giddy

Posted: October 4, 2012 at 7:12 am   /   Elections, Politics

Wow!  I’m giddy.  I was surprised and thrilled by Gov. Romney’s performance in last night’s debate (Oct. 3).  I watched the debate with 7 other Conservatives, time-delayed by a Tivo box so that we could halt the action and toss in our own comments. Several of us were apprehensive at the outset, but by the […]

Hollywood & Politics

Posted: October 3, 2012 at 3:30 pm   /   Elections, Politics

There was a time, as my wife, who is a TCM addict, keeps reminding me when there was no more patriotic place on earth than Hollywood.  It wasn’t just that such super stars as Jimmy Stewart, Clark Gable, and Tyrone Power enlisted in the military; that others volunteered to entertain the troops through USO shows […]
