At Am Thinker - Akin, the Standard-Bearer

"Congressman Todd Akin has a solid conservative record. Furthermore, he has been at the forefront of the effort to arm MEDEVAC helicopters, an issue he took up following reports from Michael Yon and two articles that appeared at American Thinker."

"Go out and support Akin, and if someone challenges that stupid statement he made, ask him about the "bump in the road," America's "57 states," or any one of the long list of other astounding Obama/Biden stupidities. Ask your challenger if he still supports those idiots."

I think this is worthy of mention:

I had a question about Mayor Michael Bloomberg, so here in Guangzhou, China I entered into the google search block, "Mayor Bloomberg".

Immediately the word "Bloomberg" became highlighted in yellow. Below the link was a yellow block containing Chinese words surrounding "Bloomberg," No links appear below the yellow highlighted box. Translating to English the words say:

"We've observed that searching for [bloomberg] in mainland China may temporarily break your connection to Google. This interruption is outside Google's control. Edit search terms Search anyway"

I have now "edited search" a dozen times and "searched anyway" as well, but no matter how I enter it, the instant the word "Bloomberg" comes up, in whatever font I type, the search is denied with the same yellow message. If I enter "Joe Bloomberg", or "Twas bloomberg and the slithy toves... " same thing.

Surprising, because this exact instant I have Bloomberg TV on my Hotel room TV in front of me. Weird.


If I purposefully mistype in "Blooomberg news" (extra "o") it avoids the yellow boxed warning and does allow the standard listing of Google links below, with the header, "About 36,200,000 results (0.15 seconds)", but upon clicking on any of the first 10 of the 36,200,000 google links below, it gives this:

"Safari can't open the page."

So just thought I would mention this as an instance of how easy it appears to be for a regulatory entity to completely censor a particular search item on the internet.

Ideologues never learn. They have no need; they already have it all sussed out.

That's why they always seem to be having "teachable" moments, even as their students are ditching class, but they never seem to have any learnable ones, no matter how monumentally ignorant they are.

Rove has a good op-ed in the WSJ about the JEF's problematic relationship to the truth and wonders how Romney should point it out in a debate short of calling him an effing liar (maybe I modified it slightly).

Somebody is learning:

Frustrated by the lack of progress in fully exposing the conspiracy behind Barack Obama’s fraudulent Certificate of Live Birth, a nationwide group of web researchers, private investigators with access to national databases and individuals with computer hacking skills, led by a team leader now located in California, have been investigating the individuals and sites involved in the creation of the fraudulent document and the disinformation campaign associated with the false narrative of Obama’s personal history.

Captain Hate
Clarice

Obama will get softball questions, lie and not get called on them. If Romney spends all his time pointing out the lies he will look negative. It's a dilemma that I hope he is working on. My guess is that he should say Obama is wrong on many things, he has time to only point out the worst of the misstatements because he needs to use most of his time, expressing his own plans and views, but he hopes the audience understands that time constraints, not agreement, are holding him back.

" TK nails it with "Harvard seems to be the one thing in common with all that is wrong""

Apologies for so many responses to the previous link on this thread, but Re: the previous comments about how so much of our current situation is being driven by Harvard. Thought it interesting that in my current read tonight I learned that President John Quincy Adams did not take the presidential Oath of Office on the Bible. Instead he took it on a Law book. Had not known that.

I admire JQAdams and have no wish to criticize him, but since Harvard Law was his Alma Mater, I suppose that that 1825 act is as good as any as a starting point from which folks can point to as a moment when HLS made it's first foray into becoming the New Nation's foundational ethical compass, as opposed to the Bible.

Am probably somewhat full of BS on this but thought it an interesting point when I read it today and 3 beers sez hit the "Post" button.

I'm still not sure why "you're an effing liar" isn't a good approach. If nothing else it would force the press to prove you wrong, and it would have the added benefit of satiating all of his helpful advisors in the public who demand more bloodletting.

Querida sent me an e mail making the rounds counting the number of executive orders issued since Theodore Roosevelt this morning. I have been deeply disturbed by the imperial presidency regardless of party, but when I read this I was shocked.

932 Executive Orders in 3 1/2 years so far. This, combined with the unprecedented use of "czars" and the roughshod use of diktats by the bureaucracy prompted my latest. Obama's Imperial Presidency. LUN

Extraneus

Yay, an Akin thread!

As for the actual topic, I don't think it's obvious that Obama isn't learning. Before considering the question, one should first stipulate what Obama has been trying to accomplish. As we all know, his goals have not been what most Americans would think worthy of a president.

Has he learned how to redistribute income, even without raising taxes?

Has he learned how to reduce our influence in the world?

Has he learned how to increase our energy costs?

Has he learned how to foil efforts to reduce voter fraud?

Has he learned how to reward his friends and punish his enemies?

Has he learned how to further his goals without going through Congress?

I'd like to read something by a lefty true believer about Obama's learning rate.

Have either of you contacted the Massachusetts Bar Association regarding Elizabeth Warren? Ask them for your money back if no license to practice law is required in Massachusetts (presuming you are both members).

MAM

Rick - I need some positivity. Can all of these polls be wrong? Everyone and everything I hear is that Romney is losing. Bloomberg, Gallup, Reuters - all have him 6-7 points down and behind in most swing states. With 40 days to go, can Romney really pull this out?

narciso

Some are just lazy, but a higher Dem turnout model then 2008, is just ridiculous. Qunnipiac, with 9-11, Washington Post with 10, well you get the drill.

GMax

Bret Bair just ran a piece that explains that in 8 swing states that register voters by party, the Democrats registrations are down TEN to ONE over Republicans. In OHIO, the the gross number of drop in registrations was around 500,000 and about 70% of that is in just three counties, Cleveland and Columbus and Cincinnati I would bet as being the nexus of the these.

Has any MSM told you this? Has any pollster looked at that and said, you know the turnout is going to be different from 2008, way different. Not outloud that is for sure.

Extraneus

Obama has learned enough to be much more effective in a second term, especially with the added flexibility he'd have.

GMAX - is the issue that when pollsters call, more of those polled identify themselves as dems?

GMAX - is the issue that when pollsters call, more of those polled identify themselves as dems?

Not GMax, but no, the pollsters "reweight" the sample to whatever they deem correct, in principle based on past turnout. So if their random sample is 30% D and they want it to be 35%, they count each D response as 35/30 of a response, and so on for R and I.

MAM,

Where is the President campaigning? He took Wisconsin by 14 points in 2008, why is he wasting time there? North Carolina, Indiana and Missouri were all in play in 2008. They aren't in play today. North Carolina is about to drop kick three Dem House members right out into the Atlantic.

Watch the DCCC House ad buys and drops. They're sliding onto defense.

There's a new Public Opinion Strategies poll on FL-18 (Allen West) today showing him with a 52/41 lead. West is a major proglodyte target (he just doesn't know his place in a truly Progressive society), he's in Florida and he's kicking ass.

MaM First off take a deep breath hold it for 3 seconds and then exhale.

I have been explaining all the problems with polling for a long time. It would take a book and frankly, I am on vacation now and dont have the patience to do a thorough job for this topic right at this moment.

Who is paying for the poll, is always the second question to question, right after where is your methodology and internals. If they hide their work, toss it as its most likely trash. Who is paying for the work will tell you a lot about what bias may be built in.

Our own Charlie Martin does a great job of explaining the statistics underlying polling, and he just got a link from InstaPundit so go look for that.

I believe turnout will end up R + 2 overall and if that happens, and Indys dont change their mind at the last minute after being against the democrats for over 2 years running, this will be an amazingly easy win for Romney.

sailor

More, GMax, even if you're on vacation!!

peter

I fully agree, Clarice. Romney should be aggressive. Even Sarah Palin was not aggressive enough in 08. We know a lot more about this con artist. Explain to us, Mr. President, why you wrote in your autobiography that you hung around with Marxist professors in college. Why doesn't anyone remember you from Columbia? If you graduated cum laude from Harvard Law School, why don't you release your grades? How is it you got to go to Pakistan when you tell us you were so poor at the time? Why did you spend millions of dollars on keeping your birth certificate a secret? Why did you tell the Russian president you would have more flexibility after you were reelected? Are you planning on selling the American people down the river? Well, you get the idea. Obamster is being prepped, but he's too stupid to be prepped for a barrage. Throw in the kitchen sink, Mitt!

Jane - Mock the Media!

Have either of you contacted the Massachusetts Bar Association regarding Elizabeth Warren? Ask them for your money back if no license to practice law is required in Massachusetts (presuming you are both members).

After all the Warren stuff I went to the BBO office site and looked up the number of opposing counsel on a big case I'm working on. It came up as some woman who got her bar card decades after opposing counsel (a man) did. Hmmm, I assume it is a secretarial mistake, but still...

I think of the BBO the same way I think of the IRS. It's a weapon in the wrong hands.

I'm pretty happy that the message is getting out about the poll skewing.

And I like Jonah. He's nice and funny - very very funny, and I think he does a good job.

Yesterday, I watched videos of all 3 of Romney's Ohio appearances. I thought the decibel level in crowd enthusiasm was off the charts in Miami, but Miami was child's play compared to Ohio.

A couple of observations:

Romney responds to this enthusiasm. It really seems to energize him beyond anything I've seen so far.

Romney is now saying repeatedly WHEN I am president, not if I become president and the crowd explodes when he says this.

Romney has been adding in more details as he explains his simple 5 point plan. With each appearance, he is expanding his explanations.

The best appearance wasn't a traditional rally but a roundtable discussion. It was all about manufacturing and included as a guest the guy who hosts the reality show "Dirty Jobs" and then several small manufacturers in Ohio. I would encourage everyone to watch this particular video.

All I can say is they loved Mitt in Ohio.

Submitted for general discussion... My proposal for Romney's closing statement at the domestic policy debate:

Four years ago, when you went into the voting booth to vote for Barak Obama, you didn’t know you were voting to double gas prices. You didn’t know you were voting for higher electricity prices, higher food prices, or 8% unemployment with no real economic growth. You also didn’t know you were voting for a new health care tax on the middle class, or giving almost one trillion dollars to democrat party special interests disguised as a stimulus bill. You certainly didn’t know that federal government spending would be almost 25% higher today than it was in 2008. And you definitely didn’t know that you were voting to cut your family income by over 8%. You voted for change. Barak Obama did change a lot of things. All the things I just mentioned.

But, this November is different. When you go into that voting booth, you know what voting for Barak Obama will mean. It will mean higher gas prices, higher electricity prices higher food prices. It will mean high unemployment and low growth. It will mean middle class tax hikes to pay for Obamacare. It will mean no reduction in government spending, and more money wasted on democrat party special interest. And finally, you’ll be voting to cut family pay even more. The next four years under Barak Obama won’t be any different than the last four years have been because it is Barak Obama’s policies that are driving all of these things the wrong direction.

Now, all this may not matter to you. You may not care what the price of gas or food or electricity is. You may have a good job, and aren’t afraid of getting laid off. And that job may have good health insurance, so you won’t have to pay the Obamacare tax. But if all that is true, then you’re pretty lucky, because most American have to deal with those problems. So the question you have to ask yourself in the voting booth is, do you feel lucky? Well, do you?

Ok, the last little bit is rhetorical flurish. And I will leave it up to Romney to articulate his own plan for the future. But I do think that at some point he needs to come out and say this, so all those "independents" who voted for Obama can feel the absolved for their previous vote.

GMax

Sailor

Just for you one more small nugget, then I am through on this for the time being. Sampling is founded on the principal of one to one correspondence. That means that the universe you are trying to draw a conclusion about, every member of that universe must have an equal opportunity to be sampled.

Now the response rates that pollsters get this days is pitiful. Answering machine with caller ID, busy people, unpublished numbers, cell phones and even unwillingness to be polled, means that for every 100 calls made, somewhere around 3 to 9 calls are successfully concluded.

In my opinion that is so far from one to one correspondence as to be laughable that there is any mathematical about the results obtained.

Chicken entrails might yield the same results.

So even if a poll is carefully planned and flawlessly executed ( neither is a given but that would require another riff another day ), it is more art than anything resembling science.

As revolting as the white wash of Barry's past is, I don't think Romney or Ryan should touch that with a magnesium barge pole.
8% unemployment, median income at a fifteen year low, still 4 million fewer jobs than the 2008 peak, poverty rate up, food stamps through the roof, trillion+ deficits, foreign policy a shambles; those crush Barry no matter what his grades in college, or how he got to Pakistan.
