Frau Kaugummi

CH - I could not vomit in a public place. Yesterday at Trader Joe's, a wimpy little old lady (my age) had a button on her hemp shoulder bag with a "Vote No on the War on Women." In an alternate universe, I took her down at the register and hit her about her mealy-mouthed head with a bag of multigrain chips. She drove away in her Cleoville-approved Prius.
feh!

Sue

I picked this question as the stupidest of the night:

QUESTION: Hi, Governor. I think this is a tough question. To each of you. What do you believe is the biggest misperception that the American people have about you as a man and a candidate? Using specific examples, can you take this opportunity to debunk that misperception and set us straight?

I could change my mind and pick the equal pay question as the stupidest.

Danube of Thought on Ipad

Sue, you make me glad I didn't watch.

maryrose

Sue:
When this stupid question was asked, I turned to my husband and said "This is the dumbest question of the night and has nothing to do with the present state of our country."

matt foley

after this "discussion" last night, i asked myself, "whatever happened to that non hack christina romer?" oh yeah, she was run out of the west wing because larry summers and goolsbee wouldn't give her the time of day. not that christina romer is the second coming, but at least she's not a hack leftist. and the thing is that larry summers really isn't a leftist apologist either, but it's instructive of the place where non ideologues who happen to be women fit in the white house.

this is almost as interesting at the huge numbers of pasty white staffers in this administration.

but romney is waging war on ladyparts.

Sue

DoT,

It was hard to choose the stupidest there were so many to choose from.

tollhouse

What's even stupider if that the questioner actually thought that they would even try to answer it.

Romney sorta bumbled about it, Obama flat out ignored the question and dropped into his stump speech.

Sue

It reminded me of Barbara Walters asking Katherine Hepburn if she was tree, which tree would she be.

Stephanie

Conservative women vote with their LADYSMARTS. Hollywood femmebots for Obama vote with their LADYPARTS.

h/t Malkin on FB Love the ecard that goes with it, but my photoshop fu sux.

Lily Ledbetter.
Isn't that the gal that psychopath Judge Roy Bean (played by Walter Brennan) was fascinated by in The Westerner with Gary Cooper?

Captain Hate

LOL @ the biggest misperception about the JEF? That he's smart? That he cares about anybody other than himself? That he loves the country? That his entire life isn't a lie? No wonder he went into a stump speech.

From what I've heard about last night, isn't Romney such an improvement over that idiot McRINO? I hope it gives McStain pain to watch how a real candidate conducts himself.

Btw ratings were down 6-8% last night from the first debate

Old Lurker

It was a neighbor's daughter years ago who started this by asking the "Briefs or Boxers" question.

Jane - Mock the media

Every time I see anything on the "war on women" I am as offended as is humanly possible. You don't get to equality by making people unequal with legislation. Just ask any sane minority.

We chicks have had every advantage since back when I became of age, a long long long time ago. The only war in progress is a war on white men.

(I know I say this all the time but it really really really bugs me.)

pagar

Did every one miss this:

" Now consider that sentence again “we’re going to coerce faith organizations to tell us things possibly told them in confidence and we’re going to coerce local law enforcement into working with us so we can stop violence ‘on the streets.’” Um… mkay."

Coming from the background of the deadly streets of Chicago every single American needs to realize that the Obama regime wants to get every single confidence given to anyone into their vast data bank.

From you guys who watched the Debate, are we now finally allowed to say that Obama is not a nice guy?

jimmyk

off?

Danube of Thought on Ipad

Lily Langtry, I think.

Danube of Thought on Ipad

New Christy Minstrels, 1964:

In Texas where there is a town
That's known by all the world around
The town where Lily came
And Langtry is its name

The law it was Judge Roy Bean
Who black as often dirty mean
The 'angin' Judge's name
His 'angin' tree is shame

He loved Lily Langtry
Lovely Lily Langtry
Beautiful Miss Lily
Lily Langtry was 'er name

So the War on Wimmen includes funding the Planned Parenthood abortion mills? 3rd trimester abortions? $9/month for birth control?

What about increased breast cancer research? by billions? Cervical cancer research?

The funding for women's cancer research seems to be largely driven by private foundations. Why?

How is it that the Republicans did n=more to empower women under the Bush Administration than the entire Obama Administration?

Sue

Obama is circling the wagons. Has now canceled ad buys in NC and FL (Suffolk is now 1 state away from batting a 1000) and is concentrating on OH IA NV NH. I can't tell where Ace is getting that information.

daddy

Back on Candy Crowley...(not literally thank goodness)

Her statement at the time:

1) Crowley to Romney last night: “It did as well take — it did as well take two weeks or so for the whole idea there being a riot out there about this tape to come out. You are correct about that.”

Her covering her butt statement afterwards:

2) "right after that I did turn around and say, but you’re totally correct that they spent two weeks telling us this was about a tape and that that there was a, you know, this riot outside the Benghazi consulate WHICH THERE WASN'T."

Is it only me that sees a big difference in those 2 statements of hers?

It seems to me she is heavy into damage control and spin in the second comment. It seems to me she is pretending to have said something which she did not say. If she had said statement (2) she would partially have made Mitt's argument for him especially with that "Which There Wasn't" part. But she didn't say that, so when I view her statement (1) it interrupts Romney and deflates his talking point, letting Obama off the hook much more than she would like us to think. She did not at all make the specific point last night that there were no protests outside the Embassy in Benghazi.

I ask just because I haven't heard that point made on TV or Radio today and it is one that leaps out at me, so I'm wondering if I'm reading something into the 2 different statements that isn't really there. For a gal that is so damn picky about words, I think she should be held to the same verbal standard she demands of Mitt Romney, and thus she ought to be hammered for her actual words.

Chubby

99From what I've heard about last night, isn't Romney such an improvement over that idiot McRINO?))

I was disappointed that Romney didn't win the primary last time around, but now I'm glad that he didn't and was spared being rolled by the Obama juggernaut. Instead we have him now when his experience and skills seem to be exactly what is needed at this point in time.

Yeah I know. I was just looking for a spot to plug one of my favorite movies and Walter Brennan's well deserved Oscar.

Hannity is saying that Major Garrett is now reporting that Obama is circling the wagons around the 4 states Ace said.

Old Lurker

"Her covering her butt"

And for that we are eternally grateful.

hit and run

Sue:
Obama is circling the wagons. Has now canceled ad buys in NC and FL

"There are a lot of ad buys that have already taken place -- so I don't expect to get a reprieve on those watching today's football games. But as long as Obama's spending money here that could probably be spent more effectively somewhere he still has a plausible chance of winning -- I'll gladly bear that burden."
--stuff hit and run said on Sunday an hour before Baumgartner jumped out of a capsule at nearly 128,000 feet above the earth, and immediately following his comments on NC early voting showing Obama getting beaten about the head and neck. Figuratively, from a voting perspective, of course.

Ignatz Ratzkiwatzki

Pretty sure "circling the wagons" is not the metaphor anyone likes people to be using about your campaign in October, unless you're Fauxcohantas maybe.

I was just pointing that out, Clarice,on the other thread, 'but it's a month of truce'

Jane - Mock the Media!

Which 4 states? Ohio ...

Frau Krimmi

(Candy and Eye Candy sittin' in a tree...)

Using Howard Rosenberg's standard, Candy Crowley certainly fills the screen--so much that it looked as if she had hidden someone inside her plus-size coat. It reminded me of Commissaire Adamberg's unexpected escape from the villain in "Wash This Blood Clean from my Hand."(Fred Vargas LUN) Of course, police officer Violette literally embraced the good side of the force.

IMHO- narciso scored twice with his "Silent Running" references.

Frau Krimmi

Ah, ole John F'n Conehead (D-South of France).

"By dawn's early light" today, we checked in the religious left retirement settlement to see if the one and only Romney sign was still standing. It was and seemingly unscathed. Now there's someone who refuses to give in to social-justice-one-world-govt. peer pressure carp.

Sue
DALLAS – A Southeast Oak Cliff resident shot and killed a burglary suspect who kicked in her door alongside an accomplice Wednesday afternoon.

One suspect was taken to Methodist Hospital, where he was pronounced dead. The second escaped.

A few days a the gun range is in order so the second one won't escape next time?

Danube of Thought on Ipad

Whew, Barbara, that's cold. Morbidly cold.

And most excellent.

DebinNC

Where was BOzo before Benghazi?
9-3 > OH then to NOLA "KatrinaKatrinaKatrina"
9-4 > VA
9-5/6 > Dem convention Charlotte
9-7 > NH then IA then FL
9-8 > FL
9-9 > FL
9-10 > back to DC
9-11 > 9-11 rounds. Panetta to WH late day
On at least 6 of those days there's no indication he received a daily briefing.

Porchlight

Let's see, if Obama holds OH NV NH IA that's 34 EVs.

I think that means they are conceding IN NC FL VA CO to Romney.

If Obama also holds NM PA MI WI he wins 271-267.

Ras has Obama +3 in NV and +1 in NH today.

How you like those margins, Barry? That pathway to victory feeling any narrower lately?

Clarice

Honestly, I do not see Obama holding WI. The left shot their wad there on local matters.

lyle

Reaching middle age, I hate to wish away precious days but Nov. 6 can't get here soon enough.

He's not getting New Hampshire and after last nights focus group (which I think was from Nevada) he's not getting Nevada either. Maryrose and the Capt have pledged Ohio, so I'm not worried. But they sure are.

You're ignoring my 3:56 because I was tweaking you yesterday, huh, Sue? :)

derwill

If they are conceding IN, NC, FL, VA and CO . . .

Then all Romney has to do is flip either OH (18 EVs), or WI (10 EVs), or NV (6 EVs), or IA (6 EVs), or even NH (4 EVs). In other words, Bam has to hold onto all 5 to win, while all Romney has to do is win one of the five. I like those odds.

Some Guy

So the best the White House pinheads can come up with is "Binders full of women"?

Let's go to the transcript!

"we took a concerted effort to go out and find women who had backgrounds that could be qualified to become members of our cabinet.

I went to a number of women’s groups and said, “Can you help us find folks,” and they brought us whole binders full of women.


So the big winning strategery is to make fun of women's groups? Or are they making fun of attempts to recruit women?

Did they hire Beavis and Butthead without anyone hearing about it... 'hehehe he said 'binder' get it. hehehehehehehe'

Sue

Ig,

You're ignoring my 3:56 because I was tweaking you yesterday, huh, Sue? :)

After a booth review I am going to take the post of the day from TC and give it to you. I just flat out missed your post.

Ignatz Ratzkiwatzki

--So the best the White House pinheads can come up with is "Binders full of women"?--

How anyone can watch this farce and not perceive it as Romney the sensible adult vs a small, insolent child on a playground is beyond me.

Porchlight

I like the odds too, derwill. I think there's room for a tie if Obama holds OH NV IA and Romney flips NH - but it's not likely.

Jane, are you not worried about NH then? I confess I thought Romney would be polling better there by now.

Ignatz Ratzkiwatzki

Anyone seen this? Seeing it on a few blogs and Twitter:

Yeah. If it's what i think it might be, it may be overhyped.

NK

OK Clarice... it is?

Jim Ryan

Porch, that site looks like it will be a big nothin'. If they had somethin' they'd out with it.

I'm starting to get cocky, or as they pronounce it in Minnesota, khaki. You can't fool over 50% of the electorate forever if you're a dirtbag. There is a finite number n such that after n years the public will figure out you're a dirtbag.

Thomas Collins

Whoops! Ignatz, I swear I wasn't doing a Joe Biden/Neil Kinnock on you. I scrolled too fast and missed your post.

I won't appeal the booth review to Commissioner Maguire, so Ignatz wins!

Porchlight

Seems like it, Jim Ryan. But it's set to go off before the last debate. If they have anything that would be a good time to break it, esp. if it's foreign policy related.

rse

Clarice-is this the story?

Given what I know was going on in this time period, this interests me. Especially when you tie in the community organizing aspects.

Jane, are you not worried about NH then? I confess I thought Romney would be polling better there by now.

I just don't think any undecided will vote for Obama if they are paying attention. And if they are not paying attention then why vote at all?

Jane - Mock the Media!

Plus, NH's motto is "Live Free or Die". They hate taxes. They hate Massachusetts. Why would they vote for Obama.

rse, no. It's tweets about some October Surprise that seem not to have anything to do with the moonbattery stuff.

Ohio will come through for Romney. The crowds here are huge for Romney and Ryan.
Mandel and Brown could be a sqeaker because of Columbus, Cleveland and Cincinnati.

JM Hanes

Ignatz:

I'm just among those who has never thought NH looked like a gimme for Mitt, despite the conventional wisdom on that score. It seems reasonable to expect better odds in formerly red states that went blue '08.

Jack is Back

8K people in Leesburg, Virginia for a Romney rally?

I know that are well. Just drove through it on my way to Frederick from Dulles Air and Space when in DC a few days back. This is "suck the hind teat of the Federal Government" land. This is a big deal for Romney to muster that kind of crowd in the backwater of Loudon County.

This is not good for the Obama campaign who depends on community college backdrops instead of enthusiastic adults and likely voters.

Obama's war on women.

http://www.weeklystandard.com/blogs/obamas-female-debate-coach-complained-about-hostile-workplace-white-house_654745.html

Still we hear of Americans who plan to vote for:

"Obama himself is responsible for a work atmosphere that marginalizes and ignores women,"

This is truly insane!

matt

JiB;

That is a hell of a good point. It's true that Obama has relied very heavily on the window dressing and close focus this time. There does not seem to be the adulation, and as he won with only @52% of the vote last time, it was by no means a gimme.

It's the casual voter who tends to be the closer, and in this I think there are huge cracks in Obama's base.

jimmyk

Plus, NH's motto is "Live Free or Die". They hate taxes. They hate Massachusetts. Why would they vote for Obama.

Jane, you might know better than I, but I had the impression that lots of Bay Staters have moved to NH and made it more Democrat than it was 15 or 20 years ago.

Rick Ballard

Porchlight,

The change in weighting by Marquette was rather revealing. The actual "firewalls" for BOzo were Dane County, Milwaukee, Cuyahoga County and NoVa. Marquette's attempt to salvage their reputation strongly suggests that Dane County and Milwaukee won't be enough, NoVa was not enough to hold Virginia and Cuyahoga cannot overcome the wave building in the 'burbs.

It would be a different story if a real Blue Hell like Philly were involved in the "firewall" but there isn't.

Far more time than Moses spent leading people thru the wilderness, I've been explaining that hoping for good things from Democrats is a waste of time.
