Seg#1: People in droves want to get rid of Obama
Media continues to be the Jokester: they totally misquoted the Mother, saying they had the 'right guy'. Even John Stewart of Comedy Central rips Brian Ross, "What does it take to be fired from CBS?"
Bain Capital is still a positive for Romney. By more then 3 to 1 say Romney would be better on the Economy. Nothing The Regime tries is working.
There is a groundswell of anti-Obama-ism ready to explode; it is not a tie. You don't have a POTUS attack America like Pres. Kardashian and people not notice. All the polls but one shows Romney leading Obama.
Negative campaign ads are not working for Obama Team; that is the concern in Drive-by Media, not whether the ad attacks are accurate or not.
Republican Super PACs continue to outshine The Regime and Obama traversing the nation. Yes, corporations house people. People in droves want to get rid of Obama, and you are not hearing about it in DbM. Liberal Democrat Marxists are worried to death about the trends. Chris Cillizza writes.
Harry 'Dingy' Reid is toast.
>>> Fast & Furious would not have worked, even with CO killings.

Seg#2: Tizzy in White House since attacking Bain didn't work
Big Labor is like a super PAC and Obama will have his share of money; they are not where they has hoped to be. He even raises money in Seattle and Oregon. Ask, "Why does he need to do that? Not Liberal enough?"
I'm telling you what I see in Realville—how would it be with a truthful media? The Obama ad campaign has written of White working voters; now they want to suppress that vote by pointing out Romney got rich at Bain Capital and it is not working.
Latest Gallup poll shows that Obama attack ads against Romney are not working. No one is that interested in how Mitt Romney made his money.
>>> In the WH, they are in a tizzy and don't know how to deal with it.

From the Rush Limbaugh Morning Update: "Common Ground"
Democrat Senator Ben Nelson was the deciding vote to pass Obamacare. In return, he was promised goodies for Nebraska, his state. The stench from the "Cornhusker Kickback" basically forced Nelson to retire.
Democrats convinced Nelson's predecessor, Bob Kerrey, to run again. He was a Navy Seal and Medal of Honor winner; he's a self-made millionaire, former governor and senator, and Democrats thought he would be a shoo-in.
But Kerrey's been living in New York for over a decade. In the July issue of Vogue magazine, his wife, a former writer for Saturday Night Live, mocked the people of Nebraska for saying "pop" instead of "soda," and for not suffering "from guilt" over things. "The Midwest is a strange land for an Easterner of my ilk," she wrote.
Kerrey's Republican opponent, Deb Fischer, has a strong lead. Even Kerrey admits he might not be able to close the gap. One reason: Kerrey supports Obamacare. He calls the flap over the Cornhusker Kickback "an odd situation where a senator actually does something for his home state and it becomes a negative." Kerrey added, "I don't need to be a senator again, and I won't be heartbroken if I lose, but I thought I at least had to make the effort."
Finally. We have common ground with a Democrat. Sir, we applaud you for making the effort, and we won't be heartbroken if you lose, either. So make everybody happy. Lose. And you wife can stay back East with her "ilk" and feel right at home along with you.

Quote Gems from Rush Limbaugh dot com:
"Before anybody could absorb the loss of those murdered in cold blood, before anybody could begin to grieve for those that we didn't even know, Brian Ross and George Stephanopoulos on ABC have breathless breaking news that turned out to be as wrong as anything in media has ever been wrong."
"Blaming guns for murder is like blaming forks for obesity. Someone misused a gun; therefore no one's allowed to have one. This is what passes for logic among the left."
"The left is filled with people who are politically ill, and their minds are poisoned, and they are demented."
"I must tell you, Snerdley's a little nervous today 'cause he thinks that I'm blaming movies for this Aurora thing. And I'm not. I got people out there attacking my Constitution and blaming it. And I'm not going to sit here on my sizeable tush and just sit here and take it."
"An intellectual deals with theories and ideas, but in the real world where your fingernails and hands get dirty, they haven't the slightest idea what to do."
"What Obama is saying about business is actually true about government. The government has nothing on its own. The government does nothing on its own. It can't. It has no money. Everything the government does comes from us."
"There is no correlating service or product or good or anything that comes with the printing of or the borrowing of money at the government level."
"Private property is as important as the right to free speech."
"The founders, John Locke, believed that there could be no real liberty unless there is property that the government cannot take from you. And Obama is trying to erase that. Obama is trying to wipe that off the books."
"According to this Hill poll, the buck no longer stops with George W. Bush; it stops with President Kardashian."
"Obama now, as a campaign tactic, has to go out and try to poison the blue-collar white vote about Romney."
"Obama wants to socialize profit and wages. The premise being that it wouldn'ta happened without government. Government owns it all."
"I wonder how many players are now going to try to transfer out of there since they've been told there's no point. You go to Penn State because there's always a bowl. You go to Penn State because it's a linebacker factory for the NFL. You go to Penn State because it has a pedigree."
"Here we have a report from AP: 'US Poverty on Track to Reach Highest Level Since the 1960s.' They're going to try to turn this into a plus for Obama, because, remember: All of this is Bush's fault."

This time it's manufacturing: U.S. manufacturing expanded in July at the slowest rate in 19 months. This is consistent with slowing GDP growth, which is expected to decline from an unacceptable 1.9% rate in the first quarter to an even worse 1.5% rate in the second. There is no sugar-coating the bad news. The administration had hoped that improving economic numbers might fuel an Obama resurgence in the summer and »
We've been keeping an eye on the Nevada Senate race between Republican Sen. Dean Heller and his Democratic opponent, Rep. Shelley Berkley. Berkley is now laboring under the cloud of a House ethics investigation. Nonetheless, she seems to be "hanging around." The only poll taken since news of the investigation broke, a survey by AFP/Madgelan taken about a week later, showed Heller ahead by only 3 points. Despite the thin »
Yesterday, I referred to a poll in which a plurality of respondents assigned primary blame for our weak economy to President Obama. He was followed by Congress, Wall Street, and former President Bush in that order. As these were the only choices offered to the respondents, I would have answered "none of the above," at least insofar as the current economic turn for the worse is concerned. For me, the »
I wrote about President Obama's campaign speech in Roanoke here, taking issue with it and noting its derivative nature in the rhetoric of Massachusetts Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren. I took another look at the speech here. The video below mashes up Obama's speech with Warren's and adds a nice musical soundtrack to suggest that Warren's rant is itself a derivative product. Originality is not necessarily a virtue in politics. The »
The Washington Post reports that attacks are on the rise in Iraq and that al Qaeda is increasingly behind them. On Monday, more than 100 people were killed in attacks across Iraq. According to the Post, "the attacks, spread across 13 cities and more than 40 locations, targeted mostly Shiite neighborhoods and appeared to be the work of al-Qaeda in Iraq." The Obama administration claims that al Qaeda poses no »
Many conservatives didn't think Mitt Romney was a good spokesman for our movement, but the fact is that right now, he, more than anyone else, is lifting high the banner of free enterprise and American tradition. Democrats have tried to defend "you didn't build it" by suggesting that Obama's pronouncement was taken out of context. But on Larry Kudlow's TV show, Romney made the same point we have made here: »
When progressives try to further explain President Obama's collectivist "You Didn't Build That" jab against entrepreneurs, they just make things worse.

The Left's Habitual and Ironic Rush to Judgment
When a radio host asked me what I thought of the massacre in Aurora, Colo., I had to ask for clarification. I said: "What do you mean? Who could deny it's an unspeakable tragedy?"
What he was really asking me was to address it in a political context. The problem is that I don't believe there was any political context to the shooting; not everything is political.
But unfortunately, elements of the left seemed determined to graft political implications onto the event, irrespective of the absence of any factual basis for doing so. They seized on it both to demonize grass-roots conservatives and to pump new life into their perennial campaign against the Second Amendment.
This is part of a leftist pattern to rush to the judgment that every such event is politically motivated -- by disgruntled right-wingers. The Daily Caller made a similar observation, citing such examples as The New York Times' speculating that the pilot who crashed his small plane into a Texas office building was "The First Tea-Party Terrorist" and Time magazine's wondering aloud whether tea partyers were behind the hanging death of a census worker in Kentucky.
But let's not forget the more high-profile examples: when President Bill Clinton pointed an unmistakably accusatory finger at conservative talk radio after the Oklahoma City bombing and when Democrats galore lurched to blame Sarah Palin and tea partyers for the Tucson, Ariz., shootings.

"Whoever wrote this movie has either really, really knows what's going on in the world, and sees the world a similar way, or they have read 'The Coming Insurrection.'" With these words, Glenn Beck may have effectively wiped away whatever doubt remained among conservatives as to whether the latest Batman movie really is a gleefully nihilistic celebration of violence for its own sake. And not a moment too soon, considering the haunting tragedy that has since come to be identified with the film.
