53 From the below June thread:

What Romney has going for him is (1) Hatred of Obama
policies and the overwhelming desire to get him out of office (2) Bad
bad economy has made the Democrats separate themselves from Obama this
will result in lower turnout (3) Black unemployment has caused a lot of
dissatisfaction. He will still get 96% of the black vote but they will
not turn out in record droves this time.


You can see this
model developing in a lot of formerly guaranteed blue States like WI
which have turned purple and maybe even red in the next election. The
States that were borderline in 2008 will be large wins for Republicans.


This election could turn into a Carteresque rout. It is Romney's to lose now.


Posted by: Vic at June 26, 2012 11:42 AM (YdQQY)

It has only got worse for Obama. MO not withstanding, this is going to turn into a rout unless Romney steps on his dick.

57 in 2010 McMahon was polling to beat Dodd. When the Dems did the switchero w/ Blumenthal, she trailed by 30+ pts. She fought back to end up making a 12 pt race on election day

Indeed...this is very foretelling and Brown went up 49 to 44 over Warren in MA as well...this in the northeast???? This is not a good sign for the Dems at all....If Conn has McMahon up by three and Ma has Brown up by 5 than there is serious movement in the polls. This is a great sign for the Repubs without any money yet from the massive war chest Mitt has been building and will be unleashed after the Convention!!

Another Florida poll from the same group that surveyed Michiganand had Mitt up by 4 has Mitt up by 14 in Florida amongcloseto 1,600 Likely Voters!! They released this poll yesterday as well. This group out of Michigan according to Powerline slants Democratic and yet has Mitt up by 4in Michigan and 14 in Florida!!

My guess is CT has a lot of Geezers in it, how usually vote Democrat.

Also, McMahon bought a lot of name recognition last time around. I'm guessing that's helping her right now. Which means she has a starting point.

But if she doesn't do something good with it, those numbers will flip.

LOL - the Feminazis think it will. They project, like all Libtards, their vile beliefs onto others. They think abortion is so highly regarded that people will love them for it. Thus they ignore the polls - most Americans still consider it OK only in fairly limited circumstances.


Of course, at the same time,the libs in generalare desperate to keep any real exposure of the truth out of the media. A while back there was an effort to buy air time for a documentary that shows what really goes on in an abortion mill, and the libtards moved heaven and earth to make sure it didn't air.

McMahon ran a shockingly professional and on-point campaign (she was the anti-Angle) in a GOP wave year in 2010, and still lost by 10% because of the tilt of Connecticut and because simply didn't like her biography. I have a hard time believing things are that much different now.

193 To my mind, loudly pushing abortion rights and gay marriage turn off more voters than they turn towards their point of view. Most people feel that women should be allowed to terminate a pregnancy very, very early in its term for valid private reasons such as rape, incest, or health of the mother. Those same folks are horrified by late term abortions and partial birth abortions. As for gay marriage, it has failed every ballot initiative because most people, no matter how casual they are about religion, really believe in their heart of hearts that marriage is for one man and one woman.

But, we do live in interesting times, we have bj clinton trotting all over the world in his elder statesman role, despite the fact that he is scum and a sexual predator--all because he thinks infanticide by tortuous dismemberment is A-OK. Think about it, PETA and people who are deeply committed to living a vegan life style because they cannot bear to think of an animal suffering also support disposing of human children in a manner that they would abhor where the fetus a calf, a puppy, or a kitten.

That is why the damned idiot Akin stepped on his (and our) dicks so hard. Any Republican doing an interview with the press should answer every question with economy, unemployment, and general lying and lawlessness of Obama.


That is regardless of what the press asks. This is what the Dems do every time when someone on Fox has the temerity to ask a valid question instead of sucking his weiner.

236 Great post.

To my mind, loudly pushing abortion rights and gay marriage turn off
more voters than they turn towards their point of view. Most people feel
that women should be allowed to terminate a pregnancy very, very early
in its term for valid private reasons such as rape, incest, or health of
the mother.


Europe has far less permissive abortion laws. Mostly because it actually has to be a law over there and we had law school graduates imposing one-size-fits-all on us. Basically, third trimester abortions are very difficult to get, although there isn't much controversy over the first trimester or the morning after pill.

Truth be told, if we were allowed to use the messiness of democracy, rather than the language of "rights", it would have probably resolved similarly.

Those same folks are horrified by late term abortions and
partial birth abortions. As for gay marriage, it has failed every ballot
initiative because most people, no matter how casual they are about
religion, really believe in their heart of hearts that marriage is for
one man and one woman.


There's also the polygamy thing. If you use any "rights" argument, then polygamy is next. That has real and tangible social damage. Also, same-sex marriage supporters are their own worst enemies.

Think about it,
PETA and people who are deeply committed to living a vegan life style
because they cannot bear to think of an animal suffering also support
disposing of human children in a manner that they would abhor where the
fetus a calf, a puppy, or a kitten.


P.J. O'Rourke observed that there was only one position which made no sense with regards to the death penalty and abortion. Being pro-abort and anti-death penalty is the only illogical position.

If you owned a Prius you wouldnt mind it so much....Try inflating your tires more, the bigger the tire the more distance you travel per revolution of the tire = less revolutions to reach your destination = less gas used.

You could also try removing all unneccessary hardware from your car like extra seats and stuff to reduce the weight, lighter cars take less gas to push.

Also you might want to consider investing in a wind farm...

If you really want to get better gas mileage you might want to consider this invention my buddy uses:

254 Honestly, I don't believe this poll for a moment. Give me some corroboration and I'll consider it more than noise. McMahon ran a shockingly professional and on-point campaign (she was the anti-Angle) in a GOP wave year in 2010, and still lost by 10% because of the tilt of Connecticut and because simply didn't like her biography. I have a hard time believing things are that much different now.

Blummenthal was in waiting for decades for this seat.
Murphy is no Blummy, and has far less money to raise vs McMahon. McMahon will spend far, far more (vs 2010) and is enjoying an out-of-the-gate advantage she NEVER saw with Rasmussen.

257 wow, looks like Ct has a little problem. I noticed the poll was:

"Should Chris Donovan Remain A Candidate For The U.S. House?" (http://tinyurl.com/9z7x2jz)

So I thought to myself, "hmm why are they taking this poll and asking this question":

"The sudden fall of one of the state's most powerful lawmakers has upended a race that was expected to end in a Democratic win. The general election will pit Ms. Esty, a centrist and the wife of the state's environmental commissioner, against state Sen. Andrew Roraback, a moderate Republican. The seat is now held by Rep. Chris Murphy, a Democrat running for U.S. Senate."

263 OK, enough trolling.

But seriously, say you are Team Obama: What do you got besides minor wedge issues to run on? War on women, Mediscare, etc--those aren't actions of offense, those are what you do to try and hold your base.

Where is the policy proposals, the big ideas that get people excited to vote for you? More of the same--only bigger and/or better--that's all they got.

So, that's a bust.
What events do you have to hope for to improve your chances? War sure as hell won't help. Can the economy get better? How? They can fudge the numbers. But even that can be dismissed as "we've seen minor increases before, this is no different."

So, it's all praying to whatever they pray to that the GOP screws up. There's a good track record there. But even that's a par 4 hole-in-one shot at this point. It has to be live girl/dead boy to have enough juice to move the needle at this point.

and here's an analogy for Akin

As Republicans and Conservatives, we must traverse a treacherous course of pitfalls set up by the Democrats.

On Sunday Akin stepped in quicksand. As he was sinking and struggling, almost every other Republican and Conservative jumped into the quicksand and tried to push Akin down and make him disappear. So now the whole GOP is in the quicksand...with Akin.

Sure, they'll get out eventually. But the moral of the story is either throw the guy a rope and pull him out or let him sink. You never jump into the quicksand.

Why I thought that Sandy was just a poor widdle innocent co-ed who was just trying to help her fellow womyn get funding for their super duper expensive birth control. Now she's a womyn's health care activist who is in concert with the Obama campaign. Who would have thunk it?

But after 2010 when they didn't elect even 1 out of the 5 House Seats to Republicans, I thought CT was 100% lost (even while envisioning a national preference cascade). But with a crappy Dem Governor (after years of somewhat solid, moderate republican governors) who has bent the citizens over for the benefit of the PEU's, and a SCoaMF in the White House, maybe the cascade will even hit there.

If this polling is solid, it indicates that any state that went (R) in 2010 (Maine, MI, WI, etc) ain't going for SCoaMF this fall, and it's all over but the arson when the lefties melt-down

314 Not sure if serious.

The only savings from your logic is tire
wear. If the larger wheels turn less, then you aren't saving any gas,
only treads. And larger wheels are heavier, adding more weight to the
car and increases braking distances.


1. Yes overinflating tires saves gas by reducing tire friction. This is both known, and dangerous. The loss of friction reduces your ability to control the automobile. It will more likely skid in corners, while making swerves, and while breaking (and accelerating if you have enough power)

2. The reason braking takes more space is the loss of friction. The weight of the additional air you add to the tire between properly inflated and safely overinflated is negligible, and the weight of the rubber doesn't change whether the tire is inflated or not.

Maybe that was the plan. In the primaries, nobody's making any money anyway and he isn't raising much. Throw the dice, see if you can get the nomination.

Then, with snake eyes showing, you just coast to an easy victory meanwhile pocketing all the cash that the RNC and NRSCC send you.

Not sure if serious.

The only savings from your logic is tire

wear. If the larger wheels turn less, then you aren't saving any gas,

only treads. And larger wheels are heavier, adding more weight to the

car and increases braking distances.

1. Yes overinflating
tires saves gas by reducing tire friction. This is both known, and
dangerous. The loss of friction reduces your ability to control the
automobile. It will more likely skid in corners, while making swerves,
and while breaking (and accelerating if you have enough power)

2.
The reason braking takes more space is the loss of friction. The weight
of the additional air you add to the tire between properly inflated and
safely overinflated is negligible, and the weight of the rubber doesn't
change whether the tire is inflated or not.

Anyone notice gas is back up at $4/gal?



Posted by: Jean at August 22, 2012 12:15 PM (WkuV6)

If you
owned a Prius you wouldnt mind it so much....Try inflating your tires
more, the bigger the tire the more distance you travel per revolution of
the tire = less revolutions to reach your destination = less gas used.

You
could also try removing all unneccessary hardware from your car like
extra seats and stuff to reduce the weight, lighter cars take less gas
to push.

Also you might want to consider investing in a wind farm...

If you really want to get better gas mileage you might want to consider this invention my buddy uses:

WCL we *are* the country we are accused of being we just have a left wing that shits themselves when the GOP holds the joystick to get the controller back.

I'd develop submersible diesel Drone Aircraft carriers, entire Carrier Group AirMobile Divisions and I would raise unholy hell with the ME.

Europe is not relevant as anything other than a future threat. We should cut a backroom deal with China and split the world in half. The US sphere is our two Continents and Oz Chhina and Russia can take Asia and EUrope and Africa is where we play "brushfire wars" for fun and profit.

We are busy ignoring and breaking the very rules we helped create with the UN... (but then thats Obama's thing, just ignore inconvenient laws and rules).

Hell.... we even put a Hit out on an American Citizen, AND HIS SON, without anything other than an Executive Order.... and that, is called MURDER.

We are currently involved in multiple LIC actions... and are still

?

I thought the point of total warfare was to avoid long-term occupations???

We won lightening quick invasions in Iraq/Afghan, and then litigated the occupations with ridiculous ROE, billions to locals who took the money and ran, and still continue to pretend that Afghan isn't in thrall to the Pakis and that Iraq isn't going to fall back into a strongman's grip.


Remember when Reagan bombed Libya? It was a spanking, not an invasion... I propose taking that Strategy to the next level...

And isn't reliance on air power alone another slow grind that yields little in long term results?

Remember 9/11 hadn't happened yet we were afraid Arafish dying would weaponize Islam. Reagan bombing worked for the most part, but we had the escalation risks from ramping it up too much.

I understand it now. He grasped they would use a major op against him in '84. I love and miss Ron.

Reagan had more sense when he took his morning dump, than Bam has when he "abuses himself" at 23:59.....

Governor Christie was unexpectedly showered with Meow Mix at a ribbon-cutting event today. The assailant, described by eyewitnesses as "unkempt", "Jabba-esque" and "possibly female", escaped from the scene in a hot dog camper van before security could intervene. A puzzling odor remains at the site of the assault.

Actualy, the city was so fragmented into groups that the key strategy was to grab the 3 major roads coming in, and the Ridge overlooking the city, seal off the city, pull back into our compounds, Let loose ONE full 16 inch broadside onto the ridge overlooking the city.... then DEMAND the city inhabitants cough up the groups responsible...

440 418 PA,

No, most politicians look at Iraq and see smashing success of "nation building" I see a nation who had even worse mega-spenders waste treasure and blood to empower a faction that is an ally to the longer term foe and regional destabilizer Iran.

The ONLY justification I ever used for "why Iraq" was that in having actionable assets on both sides of Iran so long as we cut a deal with Ivan to give him the Northern Oil Well concessions we had 'em screwed.

"Thank God" we did not grow the military to double, and actually "do anything" productive long term in either of the wings.

This Godforsaken conflict in 'ghani has gone on longer than the Hot phase of 'nam to less MIC gain. Vietnam at least let us R+D conventional war tactics and equipment against Communist Bloc trained forces....

The fact is, they're ALL out of touch. What they NEED to do is go back to their districts and SPEND TIME with their constituents. I'm not talking about some staged town hall or any bullshit like that.

Go to their homes, invite them to your office. Make yourself available. LISTEN TO WHAT THEY HAVE TO SAY.

They're all surrounded by yes men (and women) and environments that blow so much smoke up their asses, they think they're HOLY!!!

If he'd waited--thrown out some more popular, less ponderous 'reforms' first--he might not have set off the Tea Party revolt, the 2010 debacle, and all that, and would be set to go for broke in 2013 and beyond.

Yep, you want to understand the State Department, read Ann Coulter's book, Treason.
