  1. “For Mr. Obama to be in a statistical tie in an area that he won by around 20 points in 2008 truly reveals the failure of his presidency,” said Illinois-based political consultant Paul Miller. “The economy is undoubtedly the key factor, but in suburbs with a large Jewish population, his treatment of Israel is also taking its toll.”

  5. SERIOUSLY OFF TOPIC…..I SUGGEST WE ALL READ THIS

    Keeping Your Balance: 2012 and the end of the ‘Bush-era tax cuts’

    {……………..}

    Business provisions expiring at the end of this year: It is not just individuals that will be impacted by the sun setting on various benefits. The generous bonus depreciation and expanded section 179 expensing rules will disappear. Also gone or going are the incentives for increasing research activities and investing in most energy savings initiatives.

    While this covered many of the tax cuts we have enjoyed in recent years, the above list is not exclusive, and there are many other tax cuts that may be disappearing unless action is taken through new legislation. As we have frequently seen, Congress has often waited until the last minute to implement essential changes.

  6. All that comes to mind is our election. VOTER FRAUD AND EVERY TRICK IN THE BOOK.

    South African Tells of Genocide in Communist-dominated South Africa

    On Tuesday, October 2, 2012, the Fox Valley Conservative Forum, which meets regularly for a luncheon on Tuesdays in Appleton, Wisconsin, hosted a talk by South African Sonia Hruska (pictured). Hruska, who now lives in the United States, discussed the ongoing genocide against white people in her country under the largely communist-controlled ANC government of Jacob Zuma. Born in Victoria, South Africa, to a nontraditional Afrikaner family, with a right-wing father and a left-wing mother, Hruska would go on to work in politics as a consultant in the presidential administration of Nelson Mandela from 1994 to 2001. “I was the…

  8. Romney rips Obama for suggesting Chavez not a serious national threat

    According to Romney, Obama is neglecting to note Chavez’s ties to rogue Middle Eastern power Iran.

    “I was stunned by his comments,” Romney said during the interview, which will also air on Fox Business Network. “This is Hugo Chavez who has invited Iran in, who has invited Hezbollah. Hezbollah, being a surrogate and a proxy for Iran that would have access to weapons that could be used against us. The idea that this nation, this president, doesn’t pose a national security threat is simply naive and an extraordinary admission on the part of this president to be completely out of touch with what is happening in Latin America. This is a very misguided and misdirected thought on the part of our president.”

    I BELIEVE AFTER TONIGHT ROMNEY WILL BE ADDING MORE TO HIS FOREIGN POLICY SPEECH.

  9. So sad. Chavez has done nothing for this country and yet he wins. Good luck with your socialism, maybe you’ll be the first country to be successful at it. I see no future for Venezuela. So sad.

  10. Never rely on exit polling in a country where the top man wants to be president for life. As Stalin once said, “It isn’t how people vote, it’s who counts the votes.” Stalin regularly carried well over 99% of the vote.

    In an earlier vote to modify the Venezulan constitution, the army stepped in to force the release of the talleys which went against Chavez. He subsequenjtly got his wish several years later.

  11. If Chavez actually won, what does that say about the Venezuelan people? Have they been beaten down to accept dictatorship, or have the “GimmeDats” in their country taken control as ours are doing here and are consuming the producers faster than the consumers can defend themselves?

  12. Good find, Patty (page 3, #1). Romney understands the dangers perfectly.

    Birds of a feather. Waiting for the congrats to come in for the stolen election: Castro Bros., Comrade Barry Hussein, A-jad, in 3, 2, 1…

    Barry will do everything to steal the election here by any means possible.

  13. If Obama congratulates Chavez, Romney camp, get that video into an ad ASAP…and hit him with it during the foreign policy debate.

  14. OK, so besides Sean Penn, Danny Glover, and Jimmy Carter, who else is on the “Venezuelan Election Council”?

  15. nobody seriously believes this was a fair election do they?

  16. The front of Drudge is hilarious, noting Chavez’s “win”.

  17. The tanks are in the streets! What century is this ??
