Friday’s surprising jobs report quickly became the talk of the campaign trail.
Obama has many challenges to winning tonight’s debate, but having Mitt Romney as his opponent gives him a path to victory.
Is Mitt Romney planning an October surprise of sorts for tonight? Has he been saving big policy announcements and details for the debate?
Chris reviews yesterday’s court ruling postponing implementation of Pennsylvania’s voter ID law until after this year’s election and the longer video of a police officer striking a woman. He also talks to Senator Pat Toomey, Cara Blouin, producer of the Republican Film Festival and Tom McGrath from the Philly Post.
Obama has been moving the needle with seniors using distorted arguments about Social Security and Medicare. Fortunately for GOP presidential challenger Mitt Romney, seniors’ top concern is the economy’s struggles under Obama and seniors have overwhelming voted Republican in the last two presidential elections.
Chris celebrates the return of the NFL referees, ending the lockout. He details the raises give to non-union city employees by Mayor Nutter and explains the biased national polls that claim Mitt Romney is losing to President Obama. He also discusses the Inquirer suing the state of Pennsylvania to be able to see the first execution in 13 years and talks to Jerome Corsi from World Net Daily.
Romney is dragging his own campaign and every Republican down. Republican operatives and House and Senate candidates have conceded as much throughout the month of September.
The recently released tape of Romney speaking to donors at a closed door fundraiser has exposed Mitt Romney to, in fact, be the person Democrats have portrayed him to be: a rich, out of touch, arrogant man that has no respect or connection to the American middle class and absolutely no interest in making the American middle class stronger.
With Mitt Romney on the defensive, a new trio of state polls shows how serious the challenge might be for him in the coming weeks.
Last week Romney had yet another gaffe and error filled week. Week after week Romney and his campaign can’t get it together.
President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden are going for the “campy” image which screams “we’re just regular guys” on the 2012 campaign trail. America has never seen the final stretch of a presidential campaign like Obama and Biden are presenting this time around.
As unfortunate as the events are, Romney’s comments about Obama ring true. Prior to the tragic event and even after, President Obama appears to excuse and apologize for the horrendous events that take place in the world – including those against Americans.
Republicans will continue to talk down the economy for the next two months specifically because they want the economy, and the country, to suffer in order to win an election.
What a difference four horrendous years makes. Thinking back to the Democratic National Convention of 2008 and now seeing what’s going on in Charlotte, North Carolina this week at the Democratic National Convention of 2012 shows stark differences. The Democrats have no star power and pale in comparison to the Republicans’ star-packed convention in Tampa.
In an odd turn of events, the Republicans in Tampa nominated real life versions of their cartoon versions of Kerry and Gore. Republicans thought John Kerry should be criticized for changing positions. But Kerry is not in the same league as Romney who ran as a pro-choice candidate and promised to do more for gay rights than Ted Kennedy.
