Big Election News!

I mentioned I wouldn't be posting unless something BIG came up. I think this qualifies: According to Gallup, Romney leads, 52-45 among EARLY voters. Not voters who are "likely" to vote, but those who already have. Considering that early voting...

See You November 7?

This could be a lengthy post, I don't know. There's only eight days until the election. I don't really know that I will have anything to add before next Tuesday, barring some really big "October/November surprise. I'm still waiting for Breitbart to...

Obama's APB on "Folks."

The Obama administration reminds me of a classic episode of Everybody Loves Raymond. At Thanksgiving, the Romano's go to Amy's (Robert's new wife) mom and dad's home for dinner. While everyone is pleasantly chatting in the living room, a small bird in...

What's Wrong With Colin Powell?

So, Colin Powell is endorsing Barack Obama. I am not surprised, but I really don't "get it." First off, Powell says he's a moderate Republican. Well, let's see, he has endorsed Obama twice, at the expense of two relatively moderate Republicans. If...

The Romney "Intensity" Factor.

It's all about turnout, folks. Voting is not like picking a movie on cable or satellite. You don't just push a few buttons and vote from your couch. Maybe someday. As it is, you have to either request an absentee ballot (who can apply for one varies...

Trump to Reveal Obama Bombshell?

I just have to repost. Like I said earlier, I'm not playing much Internet poker because I'm so into the election. I figure, why not entertain my many fans? -- both of 'em.   I'm reading that Donald Trump says he's going to have some big, big...

The Election of a Lifetime.

Two weeks to go. From what I've read, yesterday's debate, will not change anything. Supposedly Obama "won," but not by a lot. One flash poll said that half weren't going to change their mind, and those that might, were divided evenly -- actually,...

Whee! I Early-voted Today!

I voted this morning. It's not like I had anything better to do. That's what I love about not working anymore. I can do whatever I like, whenever I like. Most importantly, I don't have to put up with poker players with bad attitudes. Understand, that...

Election Ramblings. It's What I Do.

Football in October is in high gear, of course. The sport always gets me thinking of big, burly, three hundred pound defensive lineman types, with huge shoulder pads, who instill fear upon all who gaze into those hostile eyes. But hey, enough about...

Liberalism Kills.

To those that believe politics have no real meaning, I think that murdered ambassador Christopher Stevens, if he could speak from beyond, would disagree. By all accounts, Stevens was a dedicated diplomat. I'm assuming he was a liberal Democrat, simply...

Is the Election Over?

I'm not going to watch the second debate, even though I recorded it. Why should I? The media said Obama won, so that's that, right? I have to laugh -- otherwise I'd cry -- at a media that believe the fact that Obama was more animated, somehow...

Dunn and Mao: Round TWO.

From Breitbart.com we learn the encouraging news that Anita Dunn is one of President Obama's debate coaches. How ridiculous is this? Dunn, as you may recall, was shown on a youTube video a few years ago, saying that one of her favorite political...

Not Much More to Say.

Is this what "writer's block" feels like? I wouldn't know, since you have to be a writer, in order to get blocked. So I'm told. In any case, I probably have it, which is okay, since I don't have an editor or a deadline. I just don't have anything to...

November 6: Capitalism vs. Socialism.

It's amazing what we remember over the years. When I was in the fifth or sixth grade, I was reading in a textbook about capitalism. Yep, fifth or sixth grade, a textbook was talking about capitalism. My have times changed. And it wasn't complicated,...

Big Baaaadddd Biden.

The fake smile. The phony laugh. The smirk. The constant interrupting. Well, enough about my last girl friend, let's talk about Biden. I did not watch the entire debate, just a lot of clips. Biden showed himself to be a rude, bombastic, annoying jerk....

Obama's in Trouble.

47, 48, 43.7, 45, 45, 49, 47. These are all poll numbers of Obama's, in the last eleven days. The range is Obama +1 (in a D + 8 poll) to Romney + 5 (most recent, also, interestingly, in a D + 8 poll). Now, these numbers aren't good for the president,...

Citizen Journalism vs. "Real" Journalism.

I was reading earlier, in an article on Breitbart, about how Morley Safer is upset with citizen journalists. His exact word was "appalled." Now this all came as a surprise to me. I mean, Morley Safer is still ALIVE? I had no idea! Now, don't...

Romney Takes the Lead.

I love to see liberal "pundits" squirm. A few weeks ago, they were telling Romney and his supporters to go home. Election's over. Nothing to see here. Now that Romney bested empty-chair Obama in a debate that was about as competitive as a Richard...

Romney's Comeback.

To say that Barack Obama had a tough time during last Wednesday's debate, would be like saying General Custer did not relate well to native Americans. And it was every bit of a mismatch. It reminded me of a line in Jim Croce's Bad, Bad, Leroy Brown....

Obama the Clueless.

One advantage of being a big shot in any field, but particularly in politics, is that you can say something publicly, without being questioned, but if you said the same thing in a small group at "Happy Hour," someone would ask you what the heck you're...

Thoughts on the Debate.

I recently read that 15,000,000 MORE people watched Wednesday's debate than the first debate in 2008. Wow! Who woulda thunk it? Why so many, I wonder. It's not like there are a ton of undecided voters out there. Or are there? Some of each candidate's...

Obama Crumbles in the Rockies.

Back in the mid-1980's I worked as a poker dealer at the "Silver Slipper" casino, which was located next to the Frontier. I worked a swing shift that went from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m. Anyway, each night I'd enter the parking lot from the back way, between...

You Mean Obama's NOT Color Blind?

Hmmmm. The video of Obama's 2007 speech to a predominantly African American group seems to be getting some attention. In this speech he made comments implying racism against Katrina victims, talked of "our people," and even gave a glowing "shout out"...

The Race Tightens.

I've given this example before, but I'm going to revive it, because it's one of my favorite parts of the first Rocky film, and it applies to the election. Anyway, Rocky is just a club fighter -- a "ham and egger," in the Rock's own words. Picked as a...

Obama's Next Book: "Low Expectations."

What a difference four years makes. In 2008, Barack "The One" Obama, a genius who acted like he was practically lowering himself to become President of the United States, told us he would fix everything. He was going to "fundamentally transform" the...
