how dumd is Joe Biden:
“There’s never been a day in the last four years I’ve been proud to be his vice president.”
Romeny will NOT win Pennsylvania!!!!!!!!!! Sorry, ALL that Republican money? down the toilet. Couldn't happen to a bunch of sweeter fellows those Republicans as they LOVE to see the president (and the country fail) Country first??? I THINK not. How about Country LAST!
At least Biden can spell "dumb"...how about you, golfball?
Pennsylvania (20). Everyone would have picked Obama two weeks ago. I think higher turnout in pro-coal Western Pennsylvania and higher Republican percentages in the Philadelphia suburbs could produce a surprise. The Romney team evidently thinks so too. Their investment in TV time is too expensive to be a mere feint, and, as this is written, Romney is planning a Sunday event in Bucks County outside Philly. Wobbling on my limb, Romney.
Things SEEM to be coming into focus but we cannot stop working for the president's victory. WE MUST GET OUT THE VOTE. I still worry about Republican fixed machines. Armies of our lawyers are on the scene and I am sure we have our computer geniuses too. They CANNOT get away with the voter suppression Republicans have sickeningly done to subvert our democracy. WE ARE ON TO THOSE SLUGS but think about what Republicans are trying to do--subvert the country. It makes you sickened if you love this country.
Several things are and have FAILED for Romneybot. No. 1 he is an UNLIKABLE, shallow and utterly EMPTY suit pathological liar and flip flopper candidate. NO ONE knows what the hell the guy stands for even in his own Republican base. He bold faced lied about the auto bailout that saved an industry and the industry told him that. There are so many flip flops and lies I lost count. The president is a VERY likable candidate by far.
2. The economic figures were actually good this month and more jobs added proving his policy is working (but he needs more of it see Joseph Stiglitz article here .
3. Chris Christie most emphatically my hat goes off to this man whom I used to loathe now I love -- the guy has a magnetism; look for him in 2016. I wish he were a Democrat!
4. The Obama ground game is excellent.
5. Very important October surprise SANDY!!! As horrible as this event was/is the president looks utterly presidential AND they are delivering. Democratic policies WORK! What a far cry from Bush. When the country is in trouble Democrats pull us out. Think FDR!
When the news reported the cries out of Staten Island it reminded me of Katrina. I got on the phone called the White House which was accessible at 7:00 pm. usually is not but they must have been open because of Sandy. I went on one of my tirades pleading with them to get the supplies to Staten Island there and fast. I said if we can supply Afghanistan we can supply Staten Island. I went on and on pleading NOT angrily but emotionally and said the president MUST NOT look like heckva job Brownie incompetent. He must secure his presidency by getting the supplies to these people in the form of FEMA and the Red Cross.
My heart goes out to Staten Island. I said he said call and you will get a response in 15 minutes. The 15 minute rule now as he said was in effect. HE HAS BEEN STELLAR. Next day BAM -- supplies rolled in like it was the WWII Marshall plan reconstructing Europe. The people there who lost so much were crying "THANK YOU FEMA!!" Did my phone call (and online email) do it? OF COURSE NOT as I am sure there were hundreds but the point is we must try and I did. Presto -- something worked because we have a VERY capable president who is a REAL LEADER. From bin Laden to Sandy to the economy, using a Romneybot word, GOLLY, the president gets it done!
WE WHO SUPPORT HIM (and Elizabeth Warren too) MUST NEVER GIVE UP BECAUSE ONE NEVER KNOWS. WORK THE HARDEST we can and I think or at least I HOPE he WILL win. Pennsylvania SURELY will NOT swing Romney as it did not swing McCain!
why have thdere been reports in OH that people voting for Romney are having the vote come up Obama?

Ah no - response is as bad as Katrina. More inept Dems at work Like LA. Generators for the marathon?
Romney whistle in the dark...
These behaviors go far beyond "spin." They amount to a pack of lies. To return to office a narcissistic amateur who seeks to ride this nation's economy and international esteem to oblivion, like Slim Pickens riding the nuclear bomb to its target at the end of the movie "Dr. Strangelove," would be disastrous.
Candidate Obama said if he couldn't fix the economy in four years, his would be a one-term presidency.
Mitt Romney is moral, capable and responsible man. Just this once, it's time to hold Barack Obama to his word. Maybe we can all do something about that, come Tuesday.
More Dem bipartisanship from the most inept Majority lleader ever Harry "No Budget" Reid
In fact, Mitt Romney’s Tea Party agenda has already been rejected in the Senate. In the past few months, we have voted down many of the major policies that Mitt Romney has run on, from the Ryan plan to end Medicare as we know it, to the Blunt Amendment to deny women access to contraception, to more tax giveaways for millionaires and billionaires, to a draconian spending plan that would gut critical services for seniors and the most vulnerable Americans. “Mitt Romney has demonstrated that he lacks the courage to stand up to the Tea Party, kowtowing to their demands time and again. There is nothing in Mitt Romney’s record to suggest he would act any differently as president. As governor of Massachusetts, he had a terrible relationship with Democrats, cordoning himself off behind a velvet rope instead of reaching out to build relationships. And in the near-decade that Mitt Romney has spent running for president, both his words and his actions have shown that pleasing the far right is more important to him than working across the aisle. “Senate Democrats are committed to defending the middle class, and we will do everything in our power to defend them against Mitt Romney’s Tea Party agenda.”
The study also reveals the degree to which the two cable channels that have built themselves around ideological programming, MSNBC and Fox, stand out from other mainstream media outlets. And MSNBC stands out the most. On that channel, 71% of the segments studied about Romney were negative in nature, compared with just 3% that were positive-a ratio of roughly 23-to-1. On Fox, 46% of the segments about Obama were negative, compared with 6% that were positive-a ratio of about 8-to-1 negative. These made them unusual among channels or outlets that identified themselves as news organizations.
NY times says Obama is 5 points ahead in PA. TRANSLATION. Romney is leading.
