      Major blunder. Romney I suspect is going to hammer him with it on Monday. Makes Obama look desperate and out of control. plus it brings comparisons to Carter when he tried to negotiate with the Iranians prior to the 1980 Election.

        Looks like a mistake on the Times part. No surprise there, huh? No talks, if you can believe WH people.

    FYI, I can confirm there was a Romney ad on my TV here in Michigan earlier today. Not from a super PAC or any other outside group; an official Romney For President ad.

      He’s going for the jugular. Not surprised. We saw it in the Republican debates as well – Mitt has a killer instinct.

      I think the icing on the cake would be MI, because Mitt’s father was governor. I am not sure it’s attainable but the RNC has a lot of money in the bank still so maybe they’ll give it a real try?

    The President is desperate. He’s going small and trying anything. There is no confidence and my gut tells me it will backfire. Obama has a lot of soft support that will dump him on election day and go for Romney or stay home.

    The wave is coming my friends. People now like Romney. Romney can tell jokes. Romney can debate. Romney isn’t some heartless monster. It has gone from “anybody but Obama” to “I want Mitt!”. That’s what happened in 1980. People wanted to try to bring Ford in because they didn’t like or trust Reagan. How could a Hollywood actor ever be authentic? But once people saw Reagan as he was – saw him for who he was – the wave began.

    The first debate allowed people to see Mitt Romney stand next to the President as he is. No ads calling him a vampire capitalist, just Mitt Romney. And people LOVED what they saw. That’s when the huge crowds started. Because they found out that Mitt is real.

    And his roast performance has spread like wildfire. He’s got a great sense of timing and is very funny. He was able to make fun of the President while he was sitting mere feet away while also needling himself.

    And his attack this weekend about the President having an “incredible, shrinking campaign” is gold to go with the blank sheet labeled “Obama’s Second Term Agenda” that he sent out to his 10 million FB followers. Just look at how his likes on FB have surged in less than two months.

      I am in NH and everytime I go out, I see more RR signs popping up in yards and businesses. I do think that the roast at the dinner will help even more, I have been telling everyone to see it on youtube. I got 3 calls today from the NRA and a shooting range has a sign (large) electronic that says mr president, i did build this.

      Obama is a dead man walking and he knows it. IMO he’s known it for quite some time. He’s just placeholding right now. That’s not to say he won’t make the most of his last weeks of dirty tricks, but he knows it’s all over.

    John Bolton is not going to help Romney, especially in Pennsylvania. McCain lost because of financial meltdown, and George Bush’s wars.
    Toomey had Specter beat in 2004 and then he ran an ad saying he supports the President on Iraq. Santorum was losing but close, then ran an ad about the Gathering Storm in Iran, and he lost by 20.

      I think he will hammer Obummer on Lybia debacle.

    Disagree. Rudy Giuliani was as hawkish as McCain or Santorum and yet in PA he was up over Hillary and Obama by double digits–right till the NH primary.

      What does that mean? A poll early in the year in Pennsylvania a year before the election is not very helpful, compared to actual results.

        It was an indication that hawkishness in PA, throughout 2007 and 2008 (till the NH primary) did not dampen PA voters’ enthusiasm for Rudy’s candidacy. PA voters were not turned off by “George Bush wars” in respect to McCain, or by “gathering storm” talk in respect to Santorum, or by support for George Bush regarding Iraq in respect to Toomey. In fact hawkishness was not a major factor in any of the losses.

    What a crock. This group called Project New America, which is a partisan group, contracts a Democratic firm, Lisa Grove’s polling outfit, to poll NC, WI, FL, CO, NV. Guess what? Obama is leading in everyone of them! We’ve basically entered the twilight zone of polling. Not much use in following the averages at this point, though we will continue…

      I could care less what a bias poll or about a website that uses wrong polls. They’ll be discredited soon enough.

      Obama winning this election would defy history. In 2000, 2004, and 2008 the presidential result was within a couple of points of the previous midterm election for the House of Representatives popular vote in 1998, 2002, and 2006.

      The 2010 vote was Republicans by 7%.

      Midterms are largely a referendum on the president, so unless the president changes course after the midterm, then the presidential election will repeat what occurred in the midterm election. Michael Barone had a nice article on this.

        “In 1998, the popular vote for the House was 49 percent to 48 percent Republican. In 2000, the popular vote for president was 48 percent to 48 percent Democratic.

        “In 2002, the popular vote for the House was 51 percent to 46 percent Republican. In 2004, the popular vote for president was 51 percent to 48 percent Republican.

        “In 2006, the popular vote for the House was 53 percent to 45 percent Democratic. In 2008, the popular vote for president was 53 percent to 46 percent Democratic.”–Michael Barone

        In 2010, the popular vote for the House was 52 to 45 percent. Interesting that Gallup has the national percentages at R51-O45 right now and Rasmussen has the swing state percentages at R50-O45 as of now. Pretty close correlation.

      This could be a possibility. A Bolton nomination might be held up in a Democratic-controlled Senate, but if there was a Republican-controlled Senate, no problem… 🙂
