Seriously, that is how CNN refers to a new poll released on Sunday regarding Ohio.
The poll was conducted by the University of Cincinnati's Institute for Policy Research for a collection of Newspapers across the state.  The poll found the POTUS leading Willard by 5%

Obama 51%
Romney 46%

The ABC interview was an utter disaster for Romney, and it was more than just his response to the protest and it was more than just his middle class earning expectations.

By now we have all read that Romney thinks $200,000 - $250,000 is middle class and we have all heard his argument about tax cuts, only someone did the MATH, (this math thing keeps biting him in the butt in more ways then one.)  Perhaps the full story first, before we see how he would have to raise taxes on anyone making $100,000 or more(yes for the rich too) just for this pesky MATH thing to work.

As most things that come out of his mouth the “Shiny Objects,” comment has got to rank up there with the stupidest s%!t Romney has said in his bid for the White House.  A few days ago before our embassies were attacked and we lost American lives, Romney, feeling the pressure of poor polling, poor convention, and poor substance tried to turn the race back to the issue he believes will win him the election.

Here is a quick recap...

I was surprised to visit Yahoo this morning and see this headline, “If Romney loses Ohio, Obama wins big."

(Full Video via the link above)

So we all know that the road to 270 is an uphill climb for Romney.  We know that the Obama campaign is well aware of this and we know that the Romney campaign is aware of this.  National Polls are nice, like today's Gallup which has the President gaining a point advantage over the challenger

Gallup National Tracking
Obama 50 (unchanged)
Romney 43 (-1)

And today's "Lehman" moment that has been so well documented all over the meida will not help Mr. Romney's cause, but the polls that matter are the key battleground states and man is it hard to see a path for Romney.

I am getting whiplash.  GOPers must be banging their heads against the wall.

Tonight (or last night, depending when you are reading this) Monday September 10, 2012, the flip, or is it the flop, took place.  No surprise,  Romney is again for repealing healthcare.... the dude is a joke.

This is just mind numbing.  The ultimate flip-flop-flip-flop-flip-flop-flip-flop is taking place and the main stream media is not covering it.  

Timeline below the orange squig... Link to new flip or flop below too.  These words come from his own mouth, not a news release to conservative outlets.

UPDATE:  I believe we might be full.

Right now we are 1 short in our DKos Fantasy Football League  Here is the diary I posted yesterday explaining the league.

Back with my annual recruit for a couple of DKos leagues.  I've already got one full and looking to fill the rest of the spots in our second league.  I am looking for casual players who will keep up with their teams through think and thin.  Settings allow for good chance to make playoffs and still have fun and play spoiler if you don't.

We use ESPN FF.  It requires you to create a username and password if you don't already have one.  Playing is FREEEEEE, first come first serve when it comes to open slots

Middle Tennessean here, one of the lucky ones who fared well during this weekends record setting floods.  Local and national volunteers have stepped up and helped rescue, shelter, and save our last water treatment plant.  The possibility of a water shortage is the current concern along with the thousands who are now without a home, cars and businesses.  As of right now 20 some odd counties have been declared disaster areas with the remaining of the 52 counties expected to be declared disaster areas in the next few days.  The Red Cross, Salvation Army and Second Harvest Food Bank are going to need a lot of help to take care of people across Middle Tennessee.  This effected everyone and many don’t have flood insurance due to it never flooding here in the region.

Yep, today Boss Limbaugh made it be known via his comedy hour that his failure to remain part of the investment group looking to purchase the St. Louis Rams is all Obama’s fault.  Why?  How on earth?  WTF?  You ask...  

Jump below the fold...

2 More needed!!!!!! I had so many people interested in my DKOs Fantasy Football League that I started a second one.  I am only 2 slots short of filling the league.  First two to email me are in.  I need you to be able to "join" immediately.  Time is running out and we can not draft till all slots are officially full.  People interested must be able to receive the "invite" email, log on to ESPN.com and "join" the league.  Some firewalls at work places may not let you through so be sure you can "join" before requesting an invite.  The league is made up of pure DKos readers.  Mixing politics and sports is welcomed on the message boards.

If you are a member of the first League and wish to join a second feel free to email me too.

DKos Fantasy Football Is Back ver. 2

HEllo folks.  Yesterday I posted a diary at a pretty poor time of the day in an attempt to gather a few people interested in playing a little Fantasy Football.  I had good response but I still have three spots that I need filled as the original people slotted for those openings have yet to officially join the league and the draft is in about 3 hours.
