Romney/Ryan… leads President Obama/Bumbler Biden 282-256.

It’s been a good week for the Romney-Ryan campaign.

Tomorrow marks a week since Mitt Romney announced his choice of Congressman Paul Ryan to join him on America’s Comeback Team, and it’s clear that his choice has reshaped the race in a positive way. The Obama team’s increasing vitriol is a sure sign that they’re rattled by the pick. Unable to engage in an elevated policy debate, they’ve spent the past few days drowning in their own venom.

President Obama is on defense over his $716 billion raid of current Medicare beneficiaries to pay for Obamacare, and allowing the hospital trust fund to go broke by the time those aged 50 or below are Medicare eligible. The political director of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee warned this week that the issue could cost Democrats the election.

At the same, time, the Romney Plan for a Stronger Middle Class is gaining traction. Voters in the swing states believe that Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan have a better plan than Barack Obama and Joe Biden “to reduce the deficit, create jobs and get the economy moving.”

And the Biden slavery comments didn’t help Obama either.

UPDATE: The latest forlorn plan by Team Obama – Just get unlikely voters to turn out.
Yes, it’s that bad already.

    Live Free or Die is willing to bend the knee to Obamacare and Uncle Sam taking credit for small business creation?

    I sure hope that spread increases. We need a landslide victory not only for the Presidency, but also the House and Senate. Not only do we need a great big repudiation of the left’s idealogy, but a strong message to the lying, liberal MSM that we’re sick of them too.

    Senator Brady came very close to winning the Governorship in in Illinois in 2010. From Wiki:

    “Governor Quinn won election to a full term in a very close race, beating Senator Brady by only about 32,000 votes, despite Brady winning in 98 of 102 Illinois counties.”

    Illinois hasn’t been polled, and I gotta believe it is in play. Obama could lose Illinois.

    Get ready for more wild accusations

    Ryan already says he loves noodling(catching catfish by hand)

    How long before MSLSD has “carefully edited” tape with baby seal ?

    UPDATE: The latest forlorn plan by Team Obama – Just get unlikely voters to turn out.

    By “unlikely voters” I assume that includes, illegals, pets and the deceased.

    Rasmussen has Obama approval around 43%

    Gallup has his approval at 44%

    This close to the election, this indicative of any trend to come. It will only get worse for Obama in other words. In my opinion.

    King Putt’s goon squads are going to be out by Oct. if things don’t pick up for him. Stay on the economy and don’t release any tax returns-screw these people.

    If Obama hits below 40% in approval, it will be all over. He can pack up his criminals from Chicago and take his last flight out of Washington.

  • Morgan

    I’m not buying any of these polls. There have been a lot of rumblings lately–a sure sign of the upcoming landslide!

    Obama and Biden won’t be as worried about being allowed in bakeries as they will be imprisoned for their criminal administration.

    Well we know Obama has the idiot vote sown up, even the dead vote and maybe a few cartoon characters and Mitt’ dog. But despite that there’s enough pissed off people to kick Obama out on him ass. And his pet mooch too.

    Let’s not get all Hopey about all this. Real Clear Politics still has Obama ahead 237/181 in electoral college votes, Intrade still has Obama ahead 57/42, and average national polling still has Obama 48/44.

    If you think it’s over, you’re fooling yourself. When in doubt, the incumbent wins.

    All it takes is a war in the middle east, a market crash, or some stupid terrorist attack to make Obama “appear presidential”, and it’s all over. 4 more years.

    And don’t forget how Obama won his 2004 campaign for the US Senate against Jack Ryan. One sleazy story picked up by the Chicago papers and talk shows, repeated endlessly on on the local news, and Ryan bailed out and disappeared. Don’t think for one minute every liberal hack in the media isn’t trying to repeat the process with Romney and Ryan. The October Surprise is a staple of Democrat electioneering.

    It ain’t over till it’s over, folks. We just might have to put up with this idiot for another four more years. Call me a cynic.

    It looks like to me, the larger the area the safer we are. Secure Florida so we have safe access to the Atlantic from gulf states as we cordon off Colorado and NM from liberal resupply and round up all the communists. I think most of NV is doable in short order. It’s only the southern Las Vegas pervs that ally with the commies. Use southern Alaska to disrupt shipping along west coast as we work to gain access to Pacific through Oregon….

    Not at all OT:


    Why are large ammunition purchases being distributed among domestic agencies? I could understand purchases by the military, the national guard, and homeland security. But NOAA? HHS? DOE? EPA?
