Earlier today, the Romney camp confirmed that he's campaigning in Cleveland and Pittsburgh on Election Day. Ashley Parker, NY Times:


You know who else campaigned on Election Day? No, John McCain in 2008 -- in Colorado & New Mexico. But why would Romney follow the loser McCain move? It makes no sense.


Well, Ms. Parker got a response from the Romney camp:


Yeah right! Too bad for them that Fox "columnist," Phil Kerpen, gave it away earlier today when Dave first asked the question.

Yesterday on Fox News Sunday, Brit Hume announced that the POLITICO/GWU Battleground poll coming out on Monday will show that Mitt Romney is ahead by 5!  

I questioned how would Brit know this? Is POLITICO now such an arm of the GOP that they’re leaking their numbers directly to Brit friggin’ Hume?!  Uhm, no.

Today, POLITICO released the poll and it shows the President leading Romney by 1, 49 to 48. The poll was conducted by Republican pollster Ed Goeas of The Tarrance Group and Democratic pollster Celinda Lake of Lake Research Partners.

Thanks to this diary from NJID, we learned that the RW media was still relying on Brit’s numbers to say Romney is ahead in the poll by 5 despite, you know, the actual poll showing Romney was actually leading from behind.

NJID’s diary links to a story in The Weekly Standard that continues to push this delusion:

The bipartisan Battleground Poll, in its “vote election model,” is projecting that Mitt Romney will defeat President Obama 52 percent to 47 percent. The poll also found that Romney has an even greater advantage among middle class voters, 52 percent to 45 percent.  

While Obama can close the gap with a strong voter turnout effort, “reports from the field would indicate that not to be the case, and Mitt Romney may well be heading to a decisive victory,” says pollster Ed Goeas.[…snip]

The Weekly Standard later updated its laughable article to note:
UPDATE: Politico reports on the poll's top-line: Obama 49, Romney 48 percent. But it is the noteworthy last paragraph from Goeas's memo that we're referring to: "In sum, this data indicates this election remains very close on the surface, but the political environment and the composition of the likely electorate favor Governor Romney….In that snapshot of today’s vote model, Mitt Romney leads Barack Obama by five-points – 52% to 47%….
See, what had happened was that the republican half of the polling firm decided to expand on the poll numbers by writing a memo to explain why even though Romney was behind, he was actually ahead!  The "Battleground Poll," didn't do a “vote election model,” as The Weekly Standard said. The republican half of the polling outfiit, Tarrance Group, did one!

"Hello Ms. USA!" was how "former Obama supporter," Max Rice, greeted Gretchen Carlson. Um, excuse me, she was Miss America! The rest of the interview was just...interesting. Though, Max's shit-eating grin should have given it away from the get go.

Romney Even Lies About His 9/11 Memory

by wwjjd

Man, this guy lies about everything! I don't think he can help himself.

As BuzzFeed notes, in his 2002 memoir, Romney says:

"I was on the phone to Salt Lake City, doing a radio interview. The interviewer interrupted to say there were reports that a plane had hit the World Trade Center. I hung up and turned on the small TV in the office."
Today at his National Guard speech he says:
"Someone rushed into our office and said a plane had hit the World Trade Center. I turned the small TV on desk there and watched in shock as flames and smoke erupted from the north tower."

I still vividly remember down to the friggin second where I was when I heard about the first plane hitting. This man will say whatever, whenever, and just doesn't give a damn. I bet his name isn't even Mitt...hey wait a minute!


I check in once in a while now, but not too often because it's obvious that MANY of you people who write and comment on this damn website have lost your mother fucking minds!!! Every god damned day, it's "The President is Weak", "The President is a Pushover", "Primary [PRESIDENT] Obama with Feingold" --- an SOB who couldn't even win in his own god damned state!!!!,  "Howard Dean, primary Obama" --- an SOB who couldn't win the first mother fucking time he ran, what makes you think he can win in 2012?????  "Can we draft you Bernie Sanders?"  ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME??? A self-identified SOCIALIST??  You idiots actually think he can fucking win the god damned presidency???  What in the hell are you people fucking smoking????  "Hillary should primary him in 2012."  Hey, stupid, she tried that shit in 2008 and fucking LOST!!!  Don't you remember?  I do.  She got her ass handed to her by a relatively unknown BLACK MAN!!!  Remember this idiot?
