We may have her to thank for this: GALLUP: ROMNEY 51%, OBAMA 46% Again, as of today.

You go girl!

But then again when you look at the obama and biden campaign stump speeches it's almost like they are trying to lose. In his latest, biden was talking about the Romney "$500" trillion dollar tax cuts. And obama is just making a fool of himself. It must be truly painful for the left to have to watch this. :-)

The evidence proves him right. According to the latest, requests for help were denied three times "during the attack."

Did the concept for this ad come from the Putin re-election advertisement?

Russian version shown here.

Depicting voting for Obama as a first-time-sex concept does have some parallel truth to it.
Both are acts which can make you feel good for a moment but can cause regret.

Iowahawk always come through, this is an Iowahawk tweet quoted from the Daily Caller:

For Democrats this year, voting will be like sex. Awkward, embarrassing, with lots of crying afterwards.

Your killing me with this picture as the front for the Weekend Open. I watched it earlier and quickly realized it was the dumbest political ad ever made and associated with Obama for life.

October 26, 2012 at 17:02 | Unregistered CommenterThomas Miller

The first time I "voted" was with a stoned, big-tittied girly who (like me) was not technically old enough to "vote", but what else is there to do in rural Iowa on a Friday night? My "polling station" was conveniently located in the hatchback of my $500 Pontiac Sunbird. The urge to vote occurred at a bonfire not exactly overwhelmed with warm bodies, so I guess that's why the line wasn't very long, and when it got down to filling out my ballot there wasn't many options to choose from. I walked out of the booth slightly dissatisfied (apparently she was hurting too bad to "complete her ballot") and wishing I had "voted" with a different candidate.

I would imagine that's how many people that voted "for the first time" for Barack Obama back in 2008 feel today... regret they in no way wish to feel again.

The only people that wouldn't be pissed off over this kind of news are the types of people that have no idea what an AC-130 is. It literally would have tore some serious shit up.


October 26, 2012 at 19:50 | Registered Commenterskinnydipinacid

We need to know precisely who gave what orders, on whose authority, and how high that authority reached. If stories like this are true, I want the scalps of those responsible.

October 26, 2012 at 20:13 | Unregistered CommenterRedBeard

The CIA has stated clearly that reports of the agency telling anyone to stand down are false. Now the question is who did refuse to send help.

October 26, 2012 at 20:38 | Unregistered CommenterRedBeard

Report also stated that the CIA's not even up for re-election...
... so who in the hell else could it possibly be?

(seriously Dems... clue us in here... is Obama throwing this election?

October 26, 2012 at 21:33 | Registered Commenterskinnydipinacid

Answer the question, Mr. President. It wasn't phrased with words too big for you to understand. It was a very simple question.

There are only two possibilities here. Either Obama is covering for gross incompetence in his administration, or he's covering for deliberate malfeasance in his administration that got our people killed. If he really doesn't know yet who is responsible, he falls under the gross incompetence angle. Either way, this dissembling behavior is completely unacceptable in a commander-in-chief.

My "hope" is for a real "change" involving an election in which stupid, or ill-informed, or dogmatic leftist voters are outnumbered by those who know we have to get rid of Obama to keep this once-great republic from going over the cliff.

October 27, 2012 at 06:16 | Unregistered CommenterRedBeard

Hey, here we go. Finally, after the unacceptable deaths in Benghazi, the Prez faces tough questioning from an investigative journalist. It's about friggin' time.

October 27, 2012 at 08:31 | Unregistered CommenterRedBeard

"At the photo-op staged for the returning caskets, Obama et al. seem to have been too focused on their campaign needs to observe even the minimal courtesies. Charles Woods says that at the ceremony Joe Biden strolled over to him and by way of condolence said in a “loud and boisterous” voice, “Did your son always have balls the size of cue balls?”

So President Dead-Fish Hands and Slo' Joe put on the fake condolences for the returning heroes. As for Biden it's gone beyond him being an everyday duffus to being mentally unstable. Biden is unfit to be Vice President of the United States.

October 27, 2012 at 10:42 | Unregistered CommenterThomas Miller

Good article, Tom; I particularly like the line

preening buffoon of pseudo-blue-collar faux-machismo

which seems to me to capture the essence of George W. Catastrophe pretty well.
“As for Biden it's gone beyond him being an everyday duffus to being mentally unstable. Biden is unfit to be Vice President”
Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha!

October 27, 2012 at 11:08 | Registered CommenterWinston


You can be your usual DF, we get it and roll with it. As for the dead soldier and Biden using a crass expression during the father's grief only furthers the understanding that Biden truly a fool. With the revelations coming out from one of his aides on how petty and mean he is to those who work for him, it only reinforces besides being a fool he's also a thug. Most thugs are punks which surely fits Biden. Your continual comparison to Bush Administration is comical, didn't we all suffer under those $167 billion dollar deficits and 4.5% unemployment? History won't be kind to your one-term boy. He's a cold empty suit that will be forever associated with incompetence, arrogance and laziness.

October 27, 2012 at 12:24 | Unregistered CommenterThomas Miller

History won't be kind to your one-term boy.

You never disappoint, Tom. Repulsive as ever.

October 27, 2012 at 12:28 | Unregistered CommenterWinston

Maybe Winston, Choy or even kwawk can tell us when to expect Obama's next "Virgin Sacrifice" campaign commercial for The One?

October 27, 2012 at 12:43 | Unregistered CommenterThomas Miller

As far as the fainting-couch routine on this ad is concerned, I’m thinking the days Nooshanz™ get serious traction on their indignant hissy fits of fauxtrage du jour have come and gone. Try to imagine this is Barack Obama instead of Mitt Romney chortling while Meatloaf and fellow idiots butcher one of America’ best-loved patriotic songs. The bellyaching and feigned “shocked and appalled” would never stop. It’s always f***ing OK if you’re a f***ing Republican, isn’t it?

October 27, 2012 at 12:48 | Registered CommenterWinston

Oh' I get it; white guys are called "your boy" all the time but it's racist to apply it to Barry. Whatever; he's one-term punk destined to be associated with Presidential failure for the rest of his life.

October 27, 2012 at 12:48 | Unregistered CommenterThomas Miller

All I'm saying, no praying is please oh' please Obama Re-Elect Campaign 2012 there is no Michelle Obama "First Time" campaign commercial coming.

You don't even KNOW any normal people, do you?

October 27, 2012 at 13:12 | Unregistered CommenterWinston

Has Obama run out of people to blame Benghazi on? CIA? Nope... Petreaus made it clear they didn't stand in the way. The SEALs? Nope... they defied orders to stand down and went in / out like heroes. Lack of planning? Nope... forces were ready to roll, just needed the A-OK. No air support? Nope... asskicking AC130 in the air and ready to destroy anything targeted.

Obama has stepped in it big time. Not even throwing Hillary under the bus will work go around. I'm actually surprised Bill Clinton hasn't officially come out and stood up for his wife. He may be the only powerful Democrat left smart enough to realize they could still salvage this party in a few years with Hillary on the ticket, however to do so they'd have to call out SCoaMF for what he is... a miserable failure, not only to America, but to the Democrat Party as well, before he drags Hillary down right along with him.

(Personally, I'd rather see the latter)

October 27, 2012 at 13:52 | Registered Commenterskinnydipinacid

Winston, pull your pointed little head out of your backside, boy.

October 27, 2012 at 14:49 | Unregistered CommenterRedBeard

Redneck, are you acquainted with any normal people? At all?

October 27, 2012 at 14:51 | Unregistered CommenterWinston

"Today, Gallup’s seven-day likely voters poll shows Mitt Romney leading by five points nationally, 51-46. This has not changed since yesterday. The much bigger news is that Obama’s approval rating seems to be tanking: In the last couple of days, per Gallup, Obama’s approval rating has dropped five points, and his disapproval rating has increased by the same number. This leaves the president underwater, 46-49, which continues a downward trend. On Wednesday, Obama’s approval rating was 53 percent."

Supposedly Americans all along could forgive Barry for his incompetence due to the fact he was "liked." Well, not so much anymore. If he got the GWB MSM treatment he would be somewhere in the hi-teens range right now.

October 27, 2012 at 15:01 | Unregistered CommenterThomas Miller

When you guys gonna figure out the "polls and media are liberally biased" and "media report that polls show Romney is roaring back" routines are not compatible?

October 27, 2012 at 15:09 | Unregistered CommenterWinston

That boy Winston sure is a determined one.

October 27, 2012 at 15:10 | Unregistered CommenterRedBeard

At the end of the day even the MSM polls have to "adjust" their polls to reality or look like total fools post-election. One bright spot for libs, it looks like no matter that she lied about her Indian heritage and tried cases in MA without a law license; Fakeahontas of the Moe, Curly and Shemp haircut tribe is up on Scott Brown 5%. I have no idea what MA is thinking but for f**ked up dem Senators see AL Franken*.

* Stole 2008 Senate election in Minnesota.

October 27, 2012 at 16:21 | Unregistered CommenterThomas Miller

Ah' yes as we close in on the election of 2012 the Golden Oldies of 2009 are coming back for review. Do we all remember that nauseating Hollywood actor "Pledge" to Obama. LOL. Reason T.V. went back to review those pledges and not unlike an Obama promise, those pledges feel pathetically short. Diddy said he "Pledged" to turn the lights out when he left a room. Well he has six homes and a jet. Huh; I think the light is on with nobody home in one of those six homes. Ashton Kutcher & Demi; what dweebs. Say no more. If you Google the video it looks like a f**king SNL skit. Remember this; having lived in L.A. I can tell you movie & T.V. stars are for the most part idiots.

October 27, 2012 at 16:54 | Unregistered CommenterThomas Miller

A little something for Grayphony.

October 27, 2012 at 17:07 | Unregistered CommenterWinston


Yeah the word is "RETARD." I said it.

Looks like one the Seals dad's wants to confront Obama. How's that going to play out the last ten days? I'm sure the same MSM that backed Cindy Sheehan will be there for the Seals.

Guilty pleasure alert; tweaking HuffPo posters. OMG, 50% are looking for a bunker to hole up in. The other 50% will retort anything you say with one of the following; George W Bush, Dick Cheney, Koch Brothers, Tea Party and Rush Limbaugh. I'm going to hell, it's funny to make fun of them . You can tell it's dawning on them their f**ked.

October 27, 2012 at 18:04 | Unregistered CommenterThomas Miller

Hey GrayRider! That boy Winston is at it again.

October 27, 2012 at 19:17 | Unregistered CommenterRedBeard

How can you guys joke at a time when Meatloaf is butchering America the Beautiful with Mitt Romney just sitting there watching, laughing the whole time? It's as if Mitt Romney just rolled up his sleeves, grabbed that axe and cut the head off America and then mutilated its lady parts afterwards just to rub it in on the middle class and give a good chuckle to his uber-rich friends.

Were there blacks in the crowd, Winston?

Was it a hate crime?

October 27, 2012 at 20:01 | Registered Commenterskinnydipinacid

In other news... (and in the fashion of liberal polls flipping Romney's way)
... the Des Moines Register endorsed Mitt Romney.

Think it had anything to do with the editors being told what they could/could not report on at their newspaper or do you think it's because the (primarily Democrat-friendly) people that work there are so gosh darn racist?

October 27, 2012 at 20:42 | Registered Commenterskinnydipinacid

Very surprised the Register would endorse Romney.
In the article Skinny linked to it lists their Presidential endorsements over the years.
Prior to this endorsement of Romney, the last time the Des Moines Register endorsed a Republican, I was in my last year of delivering Des Moines Registers door-to-door, in 1972.
40 years ago, wow. Please excuse me, I just realized I need to go out to buy some Geritol.

October 27, 2012 at 21:23 | Registered CommenterDuff, man

I won't use the word "retard" to describe Joe-Joe Biden, because there's nothing wrong with his IQ. It's how he chooses to use his brain that makes him so much fun to ridicule. He seems dedicated to making a fool of himself by speaking first, and thinking later. Well, at least he's entertaining, if not good for anything else.

The latest? Joe-Joe is out there campaigning in Virginia for "Tom" Kaine. That would be fine, except "Tom" isn't running for anything. "Tom" Kaine is apparently the imaginary friend of Tim Kaine, the actual Dem candidate for Senate.

Maybe Joe-Joe made this goof on purpose, as a way of deflecting attention from his recent claim that Romney would offer 500 "trillion" dollars in tax cuts to the rich.

Way to go, Barry O, King of the "Internets." You sure picked a winner as a running mate. But none of this matters, because Democrats get free passes on all gaffes. Unimportant. Irrelevant. Let's move on.

October 28, 2012 at 06:03 | Unregistered CommenterRedBeard


With less than two weeks until the election, dems know their losing and their taking their frustration out in infantile thuggish behavior. We see it every election.

October 28, 2012 at 11:17 | Unregistered CommenterThomas Miller

Skinny, that first parody was hilarious. As far as the vandalism goes, I'm afraid that may be a sign of things to come when "the one" gets crucified on November "2nd." I really hope I'm wrong about that.

October 28, 2012 at 11:45 | Registered CommenterTijuana

I loved Travolta's Malibu in Pulp Fiction. I attend car shows and without exception the late 60's muscle cars always draw the crowds. I can see Skinny in his Malibu crusing up at Lake Okoboji.

October 28, 2012 at 12:22 | Unregistered CommenterThomas Miller

If they're this childish before the election I can only imagine how stupid they'll act afterwards.

Proof positive. Ann Coulter is as small, disgusting, insensitive, degrading and uncompassionate as you are. Good catch.

October 29, 2012 at 21:50 | Registered CommenterGrayRider

Gray, its a sign of mental illness, I know, but it's interesting how Winnie thinks he is absolved by pointing out another obnoxious and insulting person. "See? Ann Coulter said a bad thing just like I enjoy doing, so that makes me a good boy." Or something. Twisted.
