Presidential Debates... Act I tonight. It's actually a pretty slow news day so far, but I did the best I could to flush out today's post.

President Barack Obama, Mitt Romney prep for University of Denver debate while running mates Paul Ryan and Vice-President Joe Biden campaign

 Will we get substance or just Zingers?   

For Romney, everyone says its his "MAKE OR BREAK" night because the trends have been against him lately.   Freaked out Republicans have put a brave face on this debate...but the fact is, they're right.  ROMNEY needs to win it, and he's been practicing for weeks.   

  • Can Obama explain a sluggish economy without sounding like a polite university professor?    

  • Can Romney correct his gaffes and be believable....show something besides his usual $2000 empty suit, and some real details for a change on what he'd do besides stopping the democrats?

    Will Obama show how the party of NO has stopped him with Congressional jobs act BLOCKS at every turn for 4 years, without sounding like he's whining?

  •  Fact is, conservatives will see them NAKED, without their handlers and pundits....for a debate just between the two of them.   Will they seem genuine, or overly rehearsed?

BREAKING:  VERY SLOW NEWSDAY.... Pity the Cable News Networks....

As everyone waits for the over-hyped debate tonight, the cable news networks are trying to fill the lull before tonight with manufactured news.    Two tapes revealed today to help the cable networks fill time between commercials.   One, several years old from Obama released with way too much sensation by THE DAILY CALL, and the other one, a non-starter from Paul Ryan.

Neither were important enough to detail, so I won't.   I heard a cold front is moving in this week, and maybe some rain.  My yard could use that.



And what was on this weekends's "skipwaves" pulldown....

God's Judgment on America


Stupidity among Conservatives

When asked “Who is more responsible for Osama bin Laden’s death, Barack Obama or Mitt Romney?”, 15% of Ohioan voters who identified themselves as “very” conservative gave credit not to the Commander in Chief and mission strategist, but to former Governor Mitt Romney … ummm … say what??! Also, 6% of “somewhat conservative” people named Mitt as their pick for the bin Laden operation mastermind.

Liberals fared better, but, surprisingly, 4% of “very liberal” Ohioans still give Romney (Yes, the man who last held state-level office FIVE YEARS AGO) the nod for killing bin Laden.

Comment Seen on the Internet about the debate...

Wouldn't it be good if Romney actually talks about what RECOVERY STEPS he plans to propose to Congress, rather than blinking (lying)  too much (or stuttering like RUSH does) or just reciting rehearsed "zingers"?

Maybe it's time to quit talking about TRICKERY AND STRATEGIES, and give voters a real choice in where he wants to take the country? And let's us pick by our vote, which way we want to America to go!


Very Bad News for Romney....New Ohio poll puts Obama up by NINE POINTS!

No Republican presidential candidate has ever captured victory without the help of Ohio. Mitt Romney's road to continuing that trend was hit with another uphill poll on Sunday.

A Columbus Dispatch survey shows the former Massachusetts governor trailing President Barack Obama by nine points, 51 percent to 42 percent. The Dispatch notes that this is the fifth recent poll showing Romney trailing by at least five points in the Buckeye State. 

The Dispatch poll was conducted from Sept. 19-29, pulling in responses from a crop of 1,662 random voters, with a 2.2 percent margin of error. September's numbers show a stark contrast from August's Dispatch data, which had Obama and Romney knotted at 45 percent apiece right before the start of the Republican National Convention.

Romney took his pitch to Ohio this past week, with tax policy at the forefront of his speech to middle-class voters. The GOP hopeful has been fighting a fierce battle from a time perspective on the ground. His first Ohio office opened this past June, while Obama has had held a five-year presence in the state, dating back to his 2008 presidential run.

3 Big Lies in Religious-Right 'Voter Guide' Hitting 13 Million Cell Phones

In his Christian education, Ralph Reed apparently never learned that it's a sin to tell a lie. His voter guide, soon to paper churches and pop up on cell phones across the battleground states, offers three big ones.    And serving it up for TAX EXEMPT CHURCHES TO REPRINT!
Here's what Reed's propaganda sheet for the religious right is saying...

Fox News:  Flag looking political logos....and the double standard


  • Ed Martin Republican candidate for Attorney General has issued a statement that Chris Koster is ducking debates. This is a baldfaced lie. Since mid-August the Missouri Bar has offered the Attorney General Candidates a debate form before their legal peers and the press. The Democrat Chris Koster accepted. the Libertarian Dave Browning accepted, only the Republican who accuses his opponents of ducking debated has refused.

"Here Comes Honey Boo Boo' renewed by TLC.
Here comes even more "Honey Boo Boo." TLC announced Wednesday that it was ordering additional episodes of the redneck reality show that stars seven-year-old former "Toddlers & Tiaras" star Alana Thompson and her family of crass, over-the-top characters.

Here Comes Honey Boo Boo Renewed"'Here Comes Honey Boo Boo' has become a pop culture phenomenon," Amy Winter, general manager of TLC, said in a statement. "What you see is what you get and we are excited to share even more of Alana and her family's unbridled hilarity, sincerity and love with our viewers."

The series has become a breakout hit since premiering in early August, averaging 2.3 million viewers per episode. The additional episode order from TLC includes Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas "HOLLAday" specials and an unspecified quantity of new episodes.

The show's cast had reportedly been locked in a salary negotiation with TLC, and were asking for raises that would bring their individual salaries up to $10,000 per episode.
