Some Guy

Damn, I've been trying to lose Jimmy Carter for 30 years, but he won't stay lost.

NK

James Earl Carter--

WORST FORMER POTUS-- EVAH!!!

NK

Carter is worse than BillyJeff-- amazing.

Sue

And he might just be worse than former President Obama.

xbradtc

James Earl Carter--

WORST FORMER POTUS-- EVAH!!!

So far...

steve

It's almost enough to make me think that Obama is doing something right if Carter is criticizing him.

Almost.

NK

Obama will give carter a run for his money for the Title of the worst former POTUS.

JM Hanes

"Of course, Jimmah has no reputation for being pro-Israel, so it isn't clear whether it is Romney or Obama that benefits from this denunciaton."

Well, I don't think it hurts the challenger when almost anybody, let alone a former President, calls the current Prez a shrinking shirker, but where turning out the base is the centerpiece of Obama's election strategy, I would definitely put this one in the Advantage Romney column.

Duel of the Pygmy Presidents

Pretty much sums up my opinion of both of them! ha ha

GMAX

Only because Zero is not officially an ex yet. But I am working on it, feverishly.

Danube of Thought

This low weasel has derogated every sitting president since he was kicked out by the American people. But I'm awfully glad to see this one get it.

Jack is Back

Can't he just stay in Georgia building homes for the homeless?

Ranger

Well, I'm pretty sure that Jimmy is a little steamed that he had to work his butt off to earn his Nobel prize, then had to wait over 20 years to actually recieve it.

rse

I just do not see bo working that hard to stick it to America and the West every chance he gets. I do believe he plans on being on vacay the rest of his life.

I do not see him doing charity fundraisers like the Haiti joint effort. He liked the perks of the Presidency but he still doesn't get what drives this country.

James Earl Carter--

Not for long.

THE DONALD: Come on, Sean. It's a big deal.

HANNITY: I don't know. I guy in his sophomore year who-

THE DONALD: Junior year, Sean.

HANNITY: Whatever, junior year, who said he saw him take LSD? And there was supposedly an F on a final?

THE DONALD: Yes. In political theory, Sean. An F in political theory, for crying out loud. On a final exam. I mean, you can't make this-

HANNITY: And you say he himself was just an exchange student to the college? For one semester?

THE DONALD: That's right, Sean.

HANNITY: I don't know....

[SNIP]

GLORIA: ...said he was oggling her, Sean, during the morning and then asked her if she would like to join him for lunch. Oggling her, Sean, and she felt like it was probably her breast. Mostly her breasts but also her legs. Outrageous! Salacious!

HANNITY: And the lunch was with two other secretaries and a couple of other managers?

GLORIA: That's right, Sean, but it was a very nice lunch and he asked whether she would like coffee and desert afterward. Unbelievable.

HANNITY: [UNDER HIS BREATH] God help me, please God, help me.

lyle

I just do not see bo working that hard to stick it to America and the West every chance he gets.

Well, we've seen how "hard" he's worked for the last four years, haven't we? I mean, sure, he's worked pretty hard to screw up our economy and bring down his handicap, but other than that...

Captain Hate

You'd think Dhimmi Earl might reflect on the price that Anwar Sadat paid for throwing his support for the peace process and STFU when it comes to offering advice.

Porchlight

James Earl Carter, Jr. is beyond thrilled that he is finally going to be able to pass on his title to Barack Hussein Obama II. Might as well help the process along.

Melinda Romanoff

I bet iBama can complete the 40 yard rake dash in lower times than Jimmah could at his peak, with higher rake to face counts to boot!

An Open Letter to Obama On "Stage 3 Romnesia"

After last night's debate, you addressed a rally of your supporters and the press in Florida. But then I repeat myself. You chose this occasion, in front of a live audience of 11,000 or so to riff that Mr. Romney suffered from "at least Stage 3 Romnesia."

Mr. Obama, you are an ass. Not just an ass, but a colossal ass.

As they say, read it all.

pagar

" just do not see bo working that hard to stick it to America and the West every chance he gets">

IMO, he will go on to the UN and he and all the other UNers will " stick it to America and the West every chance he gets."

Nathan Wurtzel ‏@NathanWurtzel

Minnesota has replaced Missouri as a swing state on RCPs dashboard tracker. Obama leads by 7.3 there.

Sue

Hey, wouldn't it be funny if Obama loses NY? Who said that earlier? Wouldn't it be extremely funny if this a blow out? Ok. Stop it. Stop it. Stop it. I am starting to freak myself out.

Sue

Ok. I don't know what Wurtzel means by dashboard tracker. The RCP electoral map on their website still has MN as leans Obama.

Captain Hate

Speaking of people that nobody cares about, Sandra Fluke is blaming Republicans for the pathetic turnout at her Las Vegas whatever. Geez, when did we get these awesome sooper powers? Must be Reince Priebus and his WARZ ON WIMMENZZ!!

Sue

Scary Larry is reporting that he is on the plane with Chuck Todd, and other members of the press, and he overheard Todd pre-flight on the phone say to someone that Obama's numbers are collapsing, in quotes. I'll link his website if anyone is really interested in seeing what else he says.

James D.

If you were one of Sandra Fluke's parent, wouldn't you be ashamed to the point of wanting to change your name and/or kill yourself?

I mean, you spend in the low six figures to send your pride and joy to a top-flight college and then on to Georgetown Law, so that she can go on national television and demand that the federal government buy her $50/month birth control perscription for her?

It really is mind-boggling.

lyle

What the country saw last night was a president and a small petulant ass acting as president for the last four years.

NK

who is 'scary larry'?

lyle

If you were one of Sandra Fluke's parent, wouldn't you be ashamed to the point of wanting to change your name and/or kill yourself?

You'd think. Alas, I sadly know several parents who would beam with pride. It should come as no surprise that they are some of the most perpetually angry, self-righteous people you could ever meet.

lyle

O'Donnell?

Sue

One scary dude. Or rather, one dude who wishes he was scary. Larry Johnson. Long-timers around here will know him.

Captain Hate

If you were one of Sandra Fluke's parent, wouldn't you be ashamed to the point of wanting to change your name and/or kill yourself?

I'd consider myself a failure as a parent and, considering the importance I place on that, a person. Keep in mind that she's old enough that her acts are those of a purported adult, by a large margin in age, whose maturation is extremely stunted.

centralcal

O'Donnell?

No - he is psycho Larry, rather worse than scary.

lyle

Hmm. I must admit I'd forgotten about M. Larry Johnson.

Neo

A man claiming to be a close pal to President Obama during college made contact with Republican operatives recently, ready to go public with claims that Obama used and sold cocaine in college, RadarOnline.com is reporting exclusively.

The operatives tried to spread the story through the media and the Romney campaign, a source close to the situation told Radar.

Operatives close to the Romney campaign were contacted and rejected the information, the source told Radar.

“They didn’t want anything to do with it,” the source said. “They thought it was not anything they wanted to be associated with or anything their candidate would want to be associated with.”

Porchlight

Ok. I don't know what Wurtzel means by dashboard tracker.

Sue, I think Wurtzel is referring to RCP's list of battleground states on the RH side of this page:

Thomas Collins

I hope El Trumperino's stuff is not dirt. It is better that the dirt be communicated to Axelrod in a mutually assured destruction message.

Thomas Collins

I notice that more and more binder references are from Romney supporters. Team Obama must know its campaign is going badly when one of its attack memes is being mocked by the opposition!

Extraneus

Is Anna Wintour pressuring designers to steer clear of Ann Romney?

LOS ANGELES – "Honored to see First Lady Michelle Obama wearing our Spring 2013 dress at the final presidential debate," boasted the Twitter account of fashion label Thom Browne soon after Monday night's debate. Yet over at the Twitter account of OscarPRGirl, the official publicist for Oscar de la Renta, not a word was uttered about the fact that Ann Romney had donned a dark teal dress from the designer's collection.

But that's nothing new.

Designers, stylists and fashion industry publicists routinely clamor to outfit First Lady Michelle Obama, with press releases flying out the door any time she sports a certain brand. Fashion publications praise her designer selections and several books have been published that are solely devoted to analyzing her style and taste.

However, the fashion world has remained particularly quiet on the Ann Romney fashion front, with many questioning whether or not outspoken Obama supporter Anna Wintour is keeping stylists and designers away, silently threatening their standing should they endeavor to promote their outfitting of the wife of a Republican presidential hopeful.

James D.

“They didn’t want anything to do with it,” the source said. “They thought it was not anything they wanted to be associated with or anything their candidate would want to be associated with.”

And they'd be right. Even if it's true (I don't doubt it), and even if there's rck-solid, incontrobertible proof that the MSM couldn't explain away or ignore, it wouldn't make a difference.

Whose vote would it change?

Extraneus

Much more on that fascinating Ayn Rand-like story at the link.

James D.

Wow, I can't spell today, can I?

NK

Ex-- I read that Wintour report-- God help me-- whta a bunch of BS. Moochelle 'excited the fashion industry' what they needed their fatass fashion designs to get publicity on Mooch's enormous posterior? What swill.

xbradtc

Actually, Fluke's parents didn't pay to send her to G'town.

A "public interest" law firm in the Bay area did.

Specifically so she could be in the Law School student body to rail and rant about contraceptive coverage.

hrtshpdbox

The Trump story is rumored to be about Obama applying for scholarships using foreign student status. As much as I previously would have liked to see stories like this hit the press, now I couldn't care less; I want Romney to win without these kind of distractions, and I'm confident he can.

Jane - Mock the media

WEll that won't help Elizabeth Warren.

NK

Many at JOM have suspected Bam applied to Occidental/Columbia as a foreign student. I would like that exposed-- AFTER BAM LOSES 11/6.

Thomas Collins

At this point, foreign student status should be in a silo, not launched. If that's what Trump has, I agree it's an unnecessary distraction, but I don't think it will generate any backlash against Romney.

Sue

TC,

Especially if it is true.

NK

On and after 11/7-- all info proving that this character is a grifter who scammed his way through life and wound up in a place to win POTUS in 2008 should be fully exposed.

Extraneus

Via Drudge, La Raza is complaining because the first Disney Latina princess is too white.

Porchlight

The left will be so furious with Obama if he loses. I expect a huge rush of tell-all books. We will learn a lot (or rather confirm a lot of previously held theories).

Chubby

"Bamnesia" is forgetting what the truth is.

Porchlight

Whose vote would it change?

I don't know if it would change many votes from Obama to Romney. However, I do think it's possible that it might cause some of Obama's soft support to be disgusted enough to stay home.

But like others I would rather Romney have a clean win. He's earned it.

Extraneus

Why are people so squeamish about exposing something about Obama before the election? Would Democrats have such reservations?

Romney had to play nice with him during the debates, but no one else does. Obama should be treated like he deserves, and then kicked to the curb.

Clarice

Pls--Let the Dems lose the Senate as well..Just long enough to scare those remaining Dems into preventing O from a Götterdämmerung ending to his tenure.

Thomas Collins

If Trump's proof is shaky in any way, it could generate a backlash. Probably not enough to sink Romney, but Trump is not doing Romney any favors by going off on his own and pulling something like this at this point in the campaign.

Jane - Mock the media

At this point, foreign student status should be in a silo, not launched. If that's what Trump has, I agree it's an unnecessary distraction, but I don't think it will generate any backlash against Romney.

Just let it dangle. If the press runs with it, then they know Obama is toast.

Extraneus

Well hopefully it's not shaky. I can't stand Trump, myself, but he was pretty effective on the birth certificate thing. Then they mocked him...

Chubby

Trump and Romney are friends who like and respect each other. Trump loathes Obama and is counting the seconds till he's booted out. I can't imagine he wouldn't have cleared whatever it is with the campaign first, and that if they had said no, he'd have complied. Why would he undermine the person he is aching to have elected?

Thomas Collins

Well, if Running Rabbit Warren can check off "Cherokee", Obama should be able to check off "Indonesian". Obama has a greater claim to "Indonesian" than Running Rabbit does to "Cherokee".

Chubby

if Trump is acting as an independent instead of Romney surrogate, wouldn't the Romney campaign have called him up after his announcment to check it out, and either discouraged him or given him the green light, depending on their perceived effect it would have on the campaign? I can't see Trump going against Romney's wishes.

Thomas Collins

Hopefully Romney's super PAC is not promoting a "Zumba Dance Rally For Mitt" event, Porchlight.

Thomas Collins

That's what I'm hoping, Chubby. But ego usually trumps friendship.

peter

Well, for Trump, who never dates a woman, just "very very attractive super models" there is always quite a bit of hype, but he did do a good job forcing Obama to forge a certificate of birth certificate and to put said certificate on line. so if he has some dope about Obama's career at Columbia (Columbian dope?) then bring it on, my Donald!

hrtshpdbox

I don't know, Chubby, Trump has a huge ego and would probably want to be a player no matter what Romney said to do. I just wouldn't want to see any post-election analysis about the effect of a story like this - Romney has been doing a classy job of beating Obama on the merits, I'd like that to be the unsullied takeaway.

Chubby

Thomas, "trumps" :)

and money and business and economic acvitity, which are primary to Trump and which are being damaged by Obama, would trump his ego in this scenario, imo.

Rob Crawford

If they called him up, he wouldn't be acting independently, would he?

Extraneus

If it's the difference between a 51/49 squeaker and a 54/46 burial, I'm for all the slime Trump can shovel. If he has the goods, let's see 'em.

Chubby

if what Trump has isn't a dealmaker, then it can't be a dealbreaker, can it?

Porchlight

TC, I was lost on the Zumba reference so I looked it up. LOL.

Chubby

((f they called him up, he wouldn't be acting independently, would he?))

if the campaign called him up after he announced he had a big thing to drop, and asked him not to, and he declined the request, that would make him an independent agent.

Thomas Collins

Chubby has small t trumped my trump! :-))

Rob Crawford
if the campaign called him up after he announced he had a big thing to drop, and asked him not to, and he declined the request, that would make him an independent agent.

I think the standard is "no coordination" not, "refused our request".

marlene

Ha!Ha! TC, the Kennebunk police will be releasing more names on the "Zumba List" on Friday.
Porchlight,the Romney ad buy in Maine makes sense,especially in Portland.Portland stations reach seacoast,lakes region and some areas of northern NH. I'm pleased they will target the 2nd district with ad buys in Bangor and Presque Isle.
Fun fact: the 2nd district of Maine is the geographically largest east of the Mississippi.

Porchlight

Yes marlene, I think they are going for the 2nd district plus NH as well. Good to know.

Obama won CT by 23 points.

And more news:

Senior Romney aides confirm to Carl Cameron that they are planning to run a 30-minute infomercial in key battleground states — Joy Lin (@JoyLinFN) October 23, 2012

We made fun of Obama for ShamWow in 2008. However, I think this could really help Romney seal the deal.

It will also be helpful to counter anything Obama tries - such as a Major Speech or getting someone like Clinton to give a Major Speech on his behalf. Not that I think Bill would agree to it at this point, but you never know what the Clintons will do.

Sue

The Daily Mail is claiming Trump's big news is Barry and Michelle almost divorced at some point in their marriage. I hope this isn't the news Trump is trumpeting.

Threadkiller

The coordinated backlash from the media, for Corsi's "Swiftboating", was the firing of Dan Rather.

Whatever Trump says they will do their best to not talk about it at all.

Rob Crawford

Why don't we all stop caring what Trump is going or not going to do?

Chubby

I hope so too Sue, that is a total non-starter.

Chubby

((Why don't we all stop caring what Trump is going or not going to do?))

how about this? you keep caring about what others are caring about, and others will keep caring about whatever they darned well feel like caring about

jimmyk

Well, I don't think it hurts the challenger when almost anybody, let alone a former President, calls the current Prez a shrinking shirker, but where turning out the base is the centerpiece of Obama's election strategy, I would definitely put this one in the Advantage Romney column.

Aren't shrinking shirkers precisely Obama's base? This could seal the deal for them.

Stephanie

I think Obama has shot himself in the foot again.

The fundraiser sent out this morning states:

“Michelle and I will be fine no matter what happens.”

Well OK then...

Doesn't this make it easier to 'just let him go?'

It comes across as giving permission to not vote for him. Or is it just me?

jimmyk

Why are people so squeamish about exposing something about Obama before the election?

Because he's already been President for four years, with a record that should sink him. At this point, who cares what he did before he was President?

If this were 2008, it would be a different story. Not the divorce thing, which is no one's business, but the drugs and bad grades.

And yes, I know Obama unsealed his opponent's divorce records, but we shouldn't sink to that level, especially when we don't need to. :)

Stephanie

And on the 'hit piece' stuff re Gawker...

The bomb went off without firing the cannon.

The message is out in the public now. Both that Obama sold drugs and that Romney won't lower himself to touch it. Both win win.

Trump will come in tomorrow with a big nothing burger that the dems will spend a news cycle or two talking about and not talking about the issues. Another win win.

lyle

It comes across as giving permission to not vote for him. Or is it just me?

That's what I thought as well, FWIW.

New word of the day

ZUGZWANG

is a situation found usually in chess, but also in various other games, where one player is put at a disadvantage because he has to make a move when he would prefer to pass and make no move. The fact that the player must make a move means that his position will be significantly weaker than the hypothetical one in which it was his opponent's turn to move.

Sums up last night's debate pretty well.
