Romney Dominates in West Virginia

Yet another one-goal game for the Washington Capitals…I can tell you this is not doing much for my high blood pressure…how about a 6-0 blowout once in a while, either win or lose, just something where I don’t spend three hours fretting over every little play….

Here is a place that does not get polled too often, the state of West Virginia. We have a new poll from RL Repass and Partners showing Mitt Romney dominating Barack Obama in the presidential race, but Democrats still leading the US Senate and Gubernatorial races.

PRESIDENT – WEST VIRGINIA (RL Repass)
Mitt Romney (R) 54%
Barack Obama (D-inc) 37%

US SENATE – WEST VIRGINIA (RL Repass)
Joe Manchin (D-inc) 74%
John Raese (R) 22%

GOVERNOR – WEST VIRGINIA (RL Repass)
Earl Ray Tomblin (D-inc) 60%
Bill Maloney (R) 32%

Those last two races were a lot closer when they were first run, showing how an open seat was the Republican’s best chance. Once a Democrat gets elected, then taking them out becomes much more difficult. This poll was done April 25-28 among 410 likely voters.

On Public Policy Polling’s Twitter feed, they state they will be releasing polls for the Presidential race in Virginia and the US Senate race in Montana today. In one of the tweets, they seem to imply Barack Obama will have a lead.

Apparently I am not supposed to go to work today….

    New Obama slogan has long ties to Marxism, socialism

    The Obama campaign apparently didn’t look backwards into history when selecting its new campaign slogan, “Forward” — a word with a long and rich association with European Marxism.

    Many Communist and radical publications and entities throughout the 19th and 20th centuries had the name “Forward!” or its foreign cognates. Wikipedia has an entire section called “Forward (generic name of socialist publications).”

    “The name Forward carries a special meaning in socialist political terminology. It has been frequently used as a name for socialist, communist and other left-wing newspapers and publications”

  3. DW says:

    2…but some have ridiculed me and others who frequently have called Obama a marxist.

  4. DW says:

    And WV voters are by far the stupidest voters on the planet. 2nd place is not even close.

  5. SusyQue says:

    The growing number of the unemployed is a crushing indictment of this belligerent man in the White House. May his days in office be
    few and another take his place on November 6, 2012!

  6. Brandon says:

    Manchin will be a senator for life.

  7. DW says:

    PPP(D) will likely show an 18 point lead for Obama in VA today.

  8. DW says:

    6…yep, and he doesn’t even have the white cloak and cone hat to go with it–like his predecessor did.

  9. Phil says:

    Happy May 1st, comrades!

    FORWARD!

  10. AuthorLMendez, Liberterian For Romney says:

    PPP had to rush out a rescue poll for VA

  11. Brandon says:

    65% of Republicans picked Manchin over Raese.

    Lost cause.

  12. DW says:

    12…they are FOOLS. One of the greatest outcomes of the civil war was that we got those fools their own state, and got them out of Virginia.

  13. david says:

    #4, I agree. All Manchin had to do two years ago to fool the people was say he was pro-gun and this time he just said he might not vote for Pres. Obama.

    So after taking office, he misses two key votes citing planned family business. Yeah right.

  14. david says:

    #13, It would be nice to have their votes during presidential elections though.

  15. DW says:

    15…well, sure, but what sort of fool stands in the booth all upset at Obama, and votes against him, but then goes one spot down the ballot and votes for the guy who is sworn to help Obama all he can.

  16. SoHope says:

    I guess the same ones that do it in Maine by voting for Obama and then supporting Collins/Snowe.

    Manchin is the Democrats Collin/Snowe

  17. Mr. Vito says:

    SOCK IT TO ME!

    #16 I would vote for the sock puppet.

  18. AuthorLMendez, Liberterian For Romney says:

    I don’t understand split ticketers myself

  19. SoHope says:

    me neither Author, I have never considered voting for a dem.

    But if Maine will give us 2 marginal
    republican senators for over a decade I’ll take it.

  20. DrJay says:

    Boston Herald: Elizabeth Warren’s embattled campaign: Cherokee tie found 5 generations ago

    “The missing link comes after Warren’s embattled campaign faced sharp questions about her Native American background in the wake of Herald stories that showed both Harvard Law School and Warren herself had touted her tribal lineage and claimed she was a member of a minority for years.

    Warren’s shaken campaign faced another crisis yesterday when it was revealed that beginning in 1986 and continuing through 1995, Warren had listed herself as a minority professor in the Association of American Law Schools desk book, a directory of law professors from participating schools.

    Warren had flatly denied that she ever touted her Native American background professionally…”

    “Suzan Shown Harjo, a former executive director of the National Congress of American Indians, expressed outrage yesterday after learning that Warren had identified herself as a Native American on law school records without documentation.”

    http://bostonherald.com/news/us_politics/view.bg?articleid=1061128421

  21. DW says:

    17…where is the evidence that Manchin is some sort of moderate? He is Dick Durban and Chuck U. Schumer.

  22. Brandon says:

    Rasmussen today:

    Approval 47/52

    10:30- Sentiments on Presidents’ Wives
    12:00- Nevada Senate
    1:00- Partisan Trends
    2:00- Employment Index

    The Hill:

    “Third-party groups allied with the Republican Party have vastly outspent Democratic incumbents and their backers in Senate battlegrounds.”

  24. Waingro says:

    Li$$y is in deep do-do in Mass.

  25. DW says:

    yesterday I offered my hyperbolic prediction of the PPP(D) VA poll. Seriously, I think that they will show:

    Romney 40
    Obama 51

    We will see how it turns out.

  26. Barrett says:

    I’ll occasionally vote split ticket. It wouldn’t be stark contrasts, like democrat and republican – it would be more like mostly republican with a few libertarian votes

  27. DrJay says:

    I’ll guess Obama +3 to 5.

  28. SoHope says:

    Manchin can be counted on by his party when absolutely necesary. His constituents cause him to throw a few bones our way…just like Collins and Snowe.

  29. SoHope says:

    I wouldn’t vote dem in local races…local politics are the Dem’s “farm team”. Remember Al Gore was a “conservative southern democrat” once.

  30. Barrett says:

    #30 – Agreed

  31. DW says:

    29…what are some of those bones? I don’t recall anything significant at all.

  32. AuthorLMendez, Liberterian For Romney says:

    I say PPP claims Obama is up 5-7 in VA

  33. SoHope says:

    I never said the bones were signifigant…blunt ammendent for starter.

  34. DW says:

    so far we have predictions of Obama ahead by 3-5 points, 5-7 and by 11. Just need to have a prediction by someone from 8-10 and we will have the bases covered and someone will be right.

  35. DW says:

    34…that’s just a chipped tooth…not a bone.

  36. Bryan says:

    Food for thought. How many people here think that Romney will govern if elected like Bush43, ie push tax cuts, and an agressive foregin policy. As a Dem who hasn’t been super thrilled with Obama I want an alternative, but not another 4 years of Bush type policies. I wish Bloomberg was running as and Independent.

  37. Phil says:

    The most significant poll out today is the monthly party ID number released by RAS. Last month it was R+3.

  38. RickPerrysParakeet says:

    More like bush 41 without the tax increases perhaps

  39. RickPerrysParakeet says:

    Romney will sign on to no new foreign adventures

  40. The Joker says:

    Obama will win Virginia Book it!!!!

  41. DW says:

    37…I dont see Romney being another Bush at all.

    1) Romney will be much more included to actually reduce gov’t spending and waste, as opposed to Bush. He has to. We are broke.

    2) Romney is not going to involve us in any more wars because he can’t. We are broke.

    3) Romney is not likely to get us any significant tax breaks. He can’t. We are broke.

    Obama has bankrupted us, and it will take an entire generation to dig out of the hole.

    My primary reason to vote for Romney is the SCOTUS. Someone will replace Ginsburg. I want it to be another Alito, not another Kagan.

  42. The Joker says:

    Romney will raise Tax’s he will be Bush 41 on steroids I hope he doesn’t have a idiot like Dan Quayle as VP but if it’s Rubio he is Dan Quayle on steroids!!!

  43. The Joker says:

    Romney would put a Sutter or a Sandra Day O’Connor on the bench there is no way he would put a Roberts or a alito on the bench that is not his liberal Marxist makeup!!!

  44. SoHope says:

    Le Pen delivers stinging rebuke to both candidates. France’s Le Pen Will Cast Blank Ballot http://on.wsj.com/JBMs4s via @WSJ

    looks like Sarkozy will lose

  45. The Joker says:

    If Romney wins the nomination all this doesn’t matter Obama is going to win Re Electon in a landslide 332-206!!!

  46. SoHope says:

    Joker you are a joke. Romney would appoint as conservative a SCOTUS pick as the senate would confirm.

    …much better than Obama would.

  47. SoHope says:

    shut up you litte puke…nobody believes for a second that you are anything but a liberal troll.

  48. The Joker says:

    By the way Romney said he would not have gone after Bin Ladin!!! Also his wife Ann said she didn’t consider themselves rich!!! You gotta be kidding me!!!! What planet is she on??? I agree she probably never worked a day in her life and Williard was born with a silver spoon in his mouth!!! He just had a rich Daddy that all!!! Romney is just a Rich Bum!!!!

  49. Phil says:

    Having to scroll past every post from this morning’s troll is annoying me.

  50. The Joker says:

    This is Fun!!!! I’m having a Blast!!!! Do you know what else ROMNEY SUCKS!!!!!

  51. Gray Goose says:

    The “business meetings” are going great. MD made it back to his room last night.

  52. Phil says:

    Florida circuit court signed onto the Florida GOP’s redistricting plan.

  53. SoHope says:

    a rich bum that donated all his father’s inheritence to charity

    Ann Romney said they were “poor in spirit” and that in their eyes money isn’t the important thing in life. Loved ones your health, ect.

    I think you picked the wrong Heath Ledger character for your moniker. you are more like the guy from brokeback mountain. Your lips are firmly around Obama’s _______.

  54. Bitterlaw says:

    I would say The Joker was Cheksux but I actually find The Joker somewhat entertaining. Cheksux just sucked.

  55. SoHope says:

    so what has Obama done? Yeah, that’s what I thought.

  56. SoHope says:

    I think Brokeback is actually Rock Rep blowing off some steam from being undercover so long.

  57. Bitterlaw says:

    Hope – I think Brokeback Mountain may have hurt gay people. I had no idea that being gay was so boring. It wasn’t The English Patient but it was incredibly dull (except for Anne Hathaway being topless).

  58. SusyQue says:

    #49…Joker…I am a bit confused. Yesterday you stated you were voting for a republican senator.
    Please tell me whom you are going to vote for to
    become the president of the USA?

  59. DW says:

    Several pundits have described the POTUS outlook as Why Obama wins, then Why Obama loses…here is mine. First, why Obama loses

    Obama loses because…

    1) Its the economy stupid. Unemployment, lack of quality jobs, lower pay, fewer benefits, lower home value, high inflation–these conditions have doomed more than one first term potus.

    2) Enthusiasm for him has vanished. The excitement of the first AA potus with all the hope and change euphoria was so intense in 2008, that the pendulum has a tendency to swing hard the other way. All Obama has to offer this time is the slogan “forward”? Forward toward what? A jump to 5 or 6 trillion in debt?

    3) Obama drew a credible opponent. Had he been able to face off against Palin, Newt, or Santorum, he would have been able to marginalize his opponent for the same weaknesses he had when he ran in 2008. Not so with Romney. By comparison, Romney has a much more impressive resume than Obama–even after he was POTUS for four years.

    4) Obama was not helped by the census reapportionment of Electoral Votes. Romney needs to win the McCain states, then take back IN (fairly easy), NC which even Rothenberg says won’t be a problem, then FL, which Romney currently leads in polls, and then the hardest task for Romney is to then take either OH or PH, and then either IA or NH.

    5) As brilliant as Obama’s fans say he is, he seems to be notorious for not helping himself. He and his family continue to go on expensive vacations at a time when average (voting) Americans are struggling. He insults the supreme court over and over and regularly grabs power that is not really his.

    6) He has a gaffe machine for Vice-president. Foreign policy was a key component of the 2008 race, but in 2012 it will be economics, not the wars. So Biden offers nothing to the ticket except STAND UP CHUCK moments.

    Obama wins because…

    1) He has the power of incumbancy and the bully pulpit. It seems whenever he slips a bit in the polls, all he has to do is pull up Obama’s body from the ocean and shoot a few more holes in it, and he jumps again in the polls.

    2) Many Americans really want to like Obama. They still see him as a sympathetic figure–Like Gary Coleman in Different Strokes, but who is now grown up and made it big, and people what to be a part of it. They think it a feel-good story.

    3) Very few Presidents who were elected to a first term, were then sent packing in their attempt to be elected to a second term. Since the time of competitive political parties, these include VanBuren, Cleveland, Ben Harrison, Taft, Hoover, Carter, and G.H.W.Bush. Taft and Bush lost in elections that were split by third-party candidates. VanBuren, Hoover and Carter were on the hook for bad economies. Harrison and Cleveland swapped the office during times of evenly divided parties. But many first term presidents have survived re-election even with poor economies.

    4) Obama is a thug who has no respect for the office. He has no scruples. If he felt he was in trouble, he would shoot himself in the leg and frame it to appear like an assassination attempt if he felt it would garner enough sympathy to get re-elected. “October surprise” might get a whole new meaning come this fall.

    5) Obama can mute the affect of the bad economy by threatening voters that it will get worse under Romney. He will skillfully make people believe that the current conditions are the new normal. People will vote like they do in banana republics, where they vote for the devil the know versus the devil they don’t know.

    6) If Obama feels he is in trouble, he could drop Biden from the ticket and put in someone else who could tip the election, like Mark Warner of VA.

    Right now, this whole thing is 50/50 and could go either way.

  60. The Joker says:

    So. Hope you can’t take the truth that all!!! Williard would be a disaster for this nation it is better to be with the devil you know than the devil you don’t know!!! Williard would destroy this nation and put us under a one world government!!! That is what his wakey religion believes!!!! They want to take over the World and usher in the Anti Christ!!!!

  61. SusyQue says:

    Joker…you are not making sense. A second term for ooo would be the disaster. Whom are you voting for in November?

  62. SoHope says:

    anne hathaway was topless in brokeback mountain? Never saw it. I didn’t see to appeal of a “gay cowboy movie”.

    watching 2 dudes kiss is uncomfortable to me…2 chicks…well thats another thing all together.

  63. Barrett says:

    #63 – Watch “Love and Other Drugs”

    You’ll get to see PLENTY of Anne Hathaway

  64. SoHope says:

    so that is the angle youre wanting to try…you are so extremely religously conservative you are anti-romney and pro-obama…whatever you dumb troll

    Nobody buys it, Brokeback

  65. The Joker says:

    59 I havn’t made up my mind yet I’m hoping Ron Paul can pull this thing out if not I’m leaning 3rd party Virgil Goode is who I’m thinking on voting for. I just don’t like Williard and I don’t see any difference between him or Obama at least we know what we are going to get with Obama but Williard who knows!!!!

  66. RickPerrysParakeet says:

    Joker is Chekote

  67. Albert Pennyworth says:

    Well, because he thought it was good sport. Because some men aren’t looking for anything logical, like money. They can’t be bought, bullied, reasoned, or negotiated with. Some men just want to watch the world burn.

  68. GPO says:

    My primary reason to vote for Romney is the SCOTUS. Someone will replace Ginsburg. I want it to be another Alito, not another Kagan.

    Comment by DW — May 1, 2012 @ 9:31 am

    exactly

  69. Barrett says:

    Hi Czechotay

  70. SoHope says:

    Now he’s a Ronulan…I don’t buy that either. Any Ron Paul loon worth his salt would have lead with his love for Ron Paul first.

  71. DW says:

    In case you all don’t realize it, “The Joker” is satire. A regular poster who is doing what Transparent Dem Troll does.

  72. Barrett says:

    #69 – Obama made that open mic comment about “having flexibility” on the missile defense shield. And then he goes and accuses Romney of not having the stones to order Bin Laden’s death?

    I can’t see our missile defense shield backtrack. I will never vote for Obama

  73. SusyQue says:

    #66…Joker…ooo is not pro-life! That alone disqualifies him in the eyes of God. He is also for partial birth abortion. That is a lot of blood on his hands and on the hands of the people who are voting for him.

  74. RickPerrysParakeet says:

    DW

    UnicornJesus’ poll numbers must be awful the I killed Osama schtick looks desperate

    He’s at 45% why will undecideds break for him?

  75. Barrett says:

    Susy…I’m very much against abortion, but I don’t think it equates to eternal damnation

  76. SusyQue says:

    #72…What is a parody poster?

  77. Barrett says:

    Women have the right the choose. They have the right not to sleep around in the first place

  78. RickPerrysParakeet says:

    I’ve never seen a president run for reelection without any positive message at all

    I expect the democratic version of “I don’t want me no Mormon” any day now…

  79. Barrett says:

    Rephrasing #78 – They have a right to CHOOSE NOT to sleep around in the first place.

    There, it should make more sense now

  80. BarbieQue says:

    “#72…What is a parody poster?”

    I am a parody poster.

    Desy N. Cortez

  86. SusyQue says:

    I hope DW will give me the answer. I did search the internet, but it didn’t satisfy as an answser.

  87. Gray Goose says:

    I am not a parody poster. I am actually a bottle of alcohol.

  88. Litterbaw says:

    You have nobody to believe Bitter. It is a cruel world. Trust no one.

    Our socialist utopia will arise, and you schmucks will be placed in crates and driven around on minivans!

  93. SoHope says:

    The Joker has stopped posting so I guess you are right that he was a parody troll. Some of his dem talking points ticked me off just the same.

    Giant erasers only work on giants, silly.

  104. Rockefeller Republican says:

    Romney will be far better than Bush-43. He is smarter and proven business leader. He doesn’t have that silly Texas machismo that W. had. Mitt is gracious and will run better in many areas of the country than W. did – notably the northeast.

    Let us not forget that W. made Obama possible: for that, Bush-43 will always be relegated to the bottom tier of GOP presidents.

    Only similarity between Mitt & W. are their top aides: Fehnstrom seems like another Rove…not good!

  105. Jimmy McMillan says:

    Too bad you don’t have an eraser to erase that Tower Of Babel, One World Government crap you posted yesterday!

  106. Transparent Dem Troll says:

    Of course I am a troll. I was promoted to manager here at the DNC Troll center. This was in the wake of the Dustin/Melissa failure. The former manager pushed them forward as a great idea. I warned they weren’t ready, and I thank the HHR for exposing them so quickly…our manager was fired and now I am in charge here.

  121. Ed Balls says:

    Stop denigrating me!

  122. Barrett says:

    Susy, I truly don’t understand you sometimes. Sometimes I’m CONVINCED that you are a parody poster, that you are just playing the role of an ultra religious person to kick the dust up around here. That’s fine I suppose, we could all use a laugh every now and then.

    But on the other hand, your biblical knowledge tells me you actually have a conviction in what you say.

    Well if I’m wrong, Cream Soda

  123. NYCmike says:

    – I still don’t get why Rocky here is constantly derided as a troll. He held his own at BJG, he was on the Mitt band-wagon early, before he made a bit of a detour when things were a bit tight, then got back on the bus at the end. His love for Nelson Rockefeller is a fault, because he absolutely ruined the Republican brand in NY, and just about bankrupted the state. The comment he made above I can’t find fault with, and I hope he proves to be right, in terms of Mitt being better than Dubya.

  124. SoHope says:

    Moderate extremism in defense of Moderate Conservatism is no vice.

  131. Barrett says:

    I think i fit the “moderate conservative mold”

    However, I’m very adamant about 2nd amendment rights, against gay marriage, against abortion, and I loath unions.

    On the other hand, I don’t mind paying my taxes when the money isn’t WASTED.

    who knows

    Northeastern PA (Obama won by 11, Kerry by 2)- per Susquehanna Polling LV model- Romney leads here by 8, a huge crash amongst the blue collar whites who went along with him after hillary lost the primary

    If those numbers are accurate O’s in W-PA are probably worse, so he is looking at a 450-480k vote loss in the T+W.PA, substaintially higher than Kerry and enough to beat out Philly IF Mitt can carry Philly Metro.

  154. DW says:

    EML…to make my point, I went back to April 2008 and found a total of 60 state matchup polls between McCain and Obama. That is two per day including weekends!

    Most WV voters are just too provincial and do not connect the dots very well between who they vote for for POTUS and who they vote for for U.S. Senate and Congress.

    Forget it when it gets to the state level as party affiliation rules their mind.
    *************************************
    Gov. Tomblin has played his hand very well since winning the special election in 2011.

    In Southern WV Rahall and Tomblin will be big winners and the margin there will more than overcome votes in other parts of state for R candidats for U.S. Senate and governor.
    **************************
    On the other hand Rs have a good chance to finallypick up WV Treasurer, AG, and one of two Supreme Court seats up this year.

    State senate–Rs will pick up maybe 3 or 4 seats and in the house maybe 5 or 6.n Still very lopsided.

Even if Philly sees 475k margin for O again (unlikely) carrying the burbs (BERKS LEHIGH NORTHAMPTON CHESTER BUCKS with narrow losses in MONTGOMERY and a moderate loss in DELAWARE) nets a considerable amount of the vote, flipping Pitt Metro (now likely) and winning the T by a larger margin than Bush (now likely with the numbers out of NEPA) will still give Romney enough to clear even that super-high margin in the City of Brotherly Love

    Romney: Romney was smart to respond that “even Jimmy Carter” would have given the order to kill bin Laden. That’s a pitch perfect response that 1. brings up Jimmy Carter; 2. answers the criticism in the broadest possible terms, i.e. of course I’d have people kill bin Laden; and 3. forces Obama to either double-down or drop the line of attack by explaining what they mean in their anti-Romney attack in more nuanced terms.

  187. Bitterlaw says:

    STEPHANOPOULOS: But if your CIA director called them and said, “We had Osama bin Laden in our sights, Musharraf says no,” what do you do?

    (CROSSTALK)

    ROMNEY: It’s wrong for a person running for the president of the United States to get on TV and say, “We’re going to go into your country unilaterally.” Of course, America always maintains our option to do whatever we think is in the best interests of America. But we don’t go out and say, “Ladies and gentlemen of Germany, if ever there was a problem in your country, we didn’t think you were doing the right thing, we reserve the right to come in and get them out.”

    ROMNEY: We don’t say those things. We keep our options quiet. We do not go out and say to a nation which is working with us, where we have collaborated and they are our friend and we’re trying to support Musharraf and strengthen him and his nation, that instead that we intend to go in there and potentially bring out a unilateral attack. Recognize to win the war on jihad, we have to not only have a strong military of our own — and we need a stronger military — we also need to have strong friends around the world and help moderate Muslims reject the extreme. Because ultimately the only people who can finally defeat these radical Islamic jihadists are the Muslims themselves.

    A person can change their mind, it isn’t a crime. I didn’t blame John Kerry for it and I’m not blaming Mitt Romney for it. If his views on immigration change, it means he’s trying to gain a better understanding.

    I have always been steadfast in my support for Romney. And I have always espoused moderative conservatism as the essential vehicle by which the GOP wins national elections. Yet, the confused and doomed here choose to think otherwise.

    It is intellectual asymmetry to posit that Rockefeller destroyed the GOP in NY when the NYGOP was at its zenith when he was governor. Just look at their decline after he left the governorship.

    Hard core dems just don’t see it. They dismiss this tacky homage that Obama is bestowing himself,regarding the take-down of OBL, as being earned. However, there is nothing discreet or dignified about such political crowing. Also, it’s ironic that while Obama demurely likes to lead from behind, he sure loves to take the credit for events out in front.

    In the meantime Obama may be patting himself on the back. But, the people, the Navy Seals, involved with the actual mission only view Obama with overt derision, slamming Obama for using them as ‘ammunition’ in bid to take credit for bin Laden killing during election campaign

    Chris Kyle, a former SEAL sniper with 160 confirmed and another 95 unconfirmed kills to his credit, said: ‘The operation itself was great and the nation felt immense pride. It was great that we did it.

    ‘But bin Laden was just a figurehead. The war on terror continues. Taking him out didn’t really change anything as far as the war on terror is concerned and using it as a political attack is a cheap shot.

    ‘In years to come there is going to be information that will come out that Obama was not the man who made the call. He can say he did and the people who really know what happened are inside the Pentagon, are in the military and the military isn’t allowed to speak out against the commander- in-chief so his secret is safe.’

    This is such a good point, Barrett. I’ve said the same thing about Romney for some time now, seeing his ability to alter some of his views and positions as being either a sign of ‘flexibility’ or even a better understanding of an issue, through changing circumstances and/or their own greater maturity. Consequently, IMO, brittleness or stubborn adherence in one’s philosophy, is not necessarily an attribute.

    An example of a policy, rather than a person, which should have been more flexible is SS. It was originally organized around stats of average life spans around 64. If it had been attached to current actuary data, the age people would be qualifying for SS would be somewhere in the 70’s. With this age-appropriate application we wouldn’t be facing early insolvency.

    When you have on-the-ground military elite seeing a prez’s high-fives for a mission as inappropriate, that is beyond the normal They all take the credit when things go well kind of politics.

    Obama has always seemed aloof and disengaged from his commander-in-chief position, not going out of his way for the military except when cameras are around for that perfect political photo opt moment. This is where Bush was head and shoulders about this president, by showing random acts of compassion that were never documented by the press. He mingled, visited and commiserated with the military and their families in private, because he felt that was his respectful role as commander-in-chief.

If history reveals any tendancies, then the most recent outcome of a higher up person, wishing to defect from China, bodes poorly for Chen: Defection denied.

    Apparently, the man has vanished since reaching out to the US.

    The office of Vice President Joe Biden overruled State and Justice Department officials in denying the political asylum request of a senior Chinese communist official last February over fears the high-level defection would upset the U.S. visit of China’s vice president, according to U.S. officials.

    Another Rasmussen poll shows how the public views the two presidential candidates, as either being ‘liberal’ or ‘conservative’.

    Voters see the 2012 presidential candidates as offering a choice between the political left and right. But they view President Obama as more committed to the political left than Mitt Romney is to the right.

    Sixty-eight percent (68%) of Likely U.S. Voters think the president is a least somewhat liberal, while 60% view the likely Republican nominee as at least somewhat conservative, according to a new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey. But that includes 43% who say Obama is Very Liberal, compared to just 18% who regard Romney as Very Conservative.

    She’s just a girl who can’t say Nein: The Munich nymphomaniac claims a second victim after 36-hour sex ordeal

    German nymphomaniac who was arrested after forcing a man to make love to her eight times has struck again.

    Her latest victim, an African, was found weeping in the street outside her apartment by police after a 36-hour ordeal.

    He fought back his tears to tell them what had happened.

    ‘I met her on a bus,’ said the man. ‘She invited me back here. Oh God, it was hell. I can’t walk. Please help me.’

    Munich police confirmed his ordeal in a press statement.

    The woman, believed to be 47, has now been taken into a hospital for psychiatric observation.

    The man only escaped from her apartment when she fell asleep.

    Her first victim Dieter Schulz, 43, met her in a bar in the centre of his home city.

    She took him back to her apartment and they had sex several times.

    But when the woman demanded more, the exhausted man said no.

    A police spokesman said: ‘He complied with the woman’s wishes another few times so he could finally leave the apartment.

    ‘But when she continued to refuse and demanded even more sex from him, he fled to the balcony.’

    Mr Schulz phoned police and pleaded for assistance.

    ‘You have got to help me,’ he told them. ‘She is trying to kill me with sex. I cannot get out – and I cannot go on!’

    When police arrived to question the woman and free Schulz she invited two officers to join her in bed for a ‘quickie.’

    They declined.

    Obama by 8…they are also touting 3rd party Virgil Goode

  236. AuthorLMendez, Liberterian For Romney says:

    @238 wow it’s even more hacktastic then I thought it’d be

  237. Phil says:

    I am deconstructing the internals of Jensen’s latest work of fiction.

    He has the Virginia electorate slightly more Democratic than it was in 2008.

    Uh, no.

  238. GF says:

    I don’t care, either, Bitter; I just wondered if anyone had seen them elsewhere. I’m all for capitalism. I do agree that some (or, at least one particular poster) here would flip out at that product being peddled.

  239. PPP Crap Cutter says:

    “hacktastic”

    We were overwhelmed this week. D+7… we’ll keep trying.

  240. Phil says:

    Jensen has Romney up 2 among Va indies and yet he has Obama expanding his margin from 6 in 2008 to 8 points now.

    Well, you can do that when you use a Dem +7 sample.

    Jensen true to form.

  241. SoHope says:

    They think Romney only gets 84% of GOP voters but Obama gets 92%

    the poll is D+7

    29% liberal
    31% moderate
    40% conservative

    Women +6

    This poll is unreal!

  242. AuthorLMendez, Liberterian For Romney says:

    what were the exits on VA in 08?

  243. DrJay says:

    McDonnell approval in this poll 46-36… lowest in any poll this year.

  244. AuthorLMendez, Liberterian For Romney says:

    @ 246 Ras reported his approval at 58%

  245. DrJay says:

    hint hint…

  246. Phil says:

    Hope,

    Jensen does what he has to do. I can tell you that a Virginia sample slightly more Democratic than 2008 is flat out ridiculous.

    It was D+6 in the Dem storm of 2008. Look for it to be something like D+2 or D+3 this time.

    Jensen releasing one of his months out propaganda polls. Nothing to see here but pure comedy.

  247. Mexifornia! says:

    Hispanic Cheerios?!? See. I warned all of you. It’s happening. Read the book! Read it!

  248. Phil says:

    Don’t get me wrong. I’ve always thought Virginia would be very close. One or two points at the most.

    Jensen is as full of s**t on Virginia as he is on his presidential polling in NC. Agenda driven….

  249. SoHope says:

    North Evangelina will vote Romney!

  250. Bitterlaw says:

    Hope- are you hearing confessions today? I was pretty vicious to Add last night. I don’t feel any guilt at all over it. Is that ok?

  251. DW says:

    ok I had predicted PPP(D) would say Obama by 11, so the fact that the could only lie as high as +8 means that Romney wins VA 52/47 in the end, just like I have been saying for a year now.

  252. Davey N. Crockett says:

    252- Not so! I couldn’t sway my brothers in TN, so I trecked east and have found the kind folk of NC easily persuadable. Obama will win NC handily! I hope to make it to TX soon to gin up a groundswell of Hispanic support that will put him over the top there, too.

  253. Mexifornia! says:

    Both Dora the Explorer and Handy Manny are Hispanic! I warned you! Read the book!

  254. DW says:

    But PPP(D) is dead to me. I don’t consider it a real poll, and do not include their polls in any of my own analysis.
