Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain

In 1984, when Reagan was running for re-election against Mondale, the Washington Post published a poll saying Reagan’s lead in his home state of California had dropped alarmingly.

A short while later, in the greatest landslide victory in presidential history, Reagan won 49 states; in California, he won by more than 16 points. The only state he lost was where Mondale barely squeaked 49.72% to Reagan’s 49.54% out of his own homies.

When Reagan’s campaign manager tasked Ben Bradlee about the Washington Post’s “lousy polling methodology”, Bradlee shot back,

“Tough sh…t. … It’s my in-kind contribution to the Mondale campaign.”

Got that?

The EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR of a major metropolitan newspaper had NO PROBLEM using his elite, protected position to PIMP the Democrat, rather than EDUCATE the voters!

The Obama campaign has been whining non-stop about the allegedly HUGE spending by rich Republicans who want to “buy” the White House for Romney and Ryan.

Apart from the fact that it’s mostly a load of unsubstantiated donkey doo, the campaigns being very close in total spending
http://news.webshots.com/photo/2358484380056011884jdKmUF, it also doesn’t count at all the “in kind contributions” of the left-wing media and their biased poll reporting.

Like Jimmy Carter in 1980, Obama is increasingly seen as a disaster in both economic and foreign policy. His Gallup job approval rating has been at or below 50% for nearly his entire time in office.

So … heck yes, Virginia. The polls showing Obama leading over Romney are nothing more than the grossly biased, in-kind contributions of the left-wing media.

Let me just repeat what I said yesterday. It is what it is. Accept it and work around it. THEY want the polls to get Republicans too bummed to bother voting; but those polls could just as easily make lazy Democrats stay at home.

Tell your fellow Romney supporters the polls are biased and they MUST VOTE.

And pray for bad weather!

Posted by Pistol Pete

Well,Bozo did his ‘eye candy’ thing on The Spew today,then went to the UN to bow to his superiors from all the tinpot nations of the world.If you haven’t noticed,I try not to post too much of Dear Reader because its difficult to tolerate,even for a trained professional like me and I care  too much to put you through it.The header for this video thread came to me in an epiphany while I was doing my daily Durbin.I think I should get an increase in my already-obscene salary.Maybe I should go on strike.Hey,it worked for the teachers union and the Chicago symphony orchestra.

Gun control is the crime

If you like this, you might also want to watch the documentary that flipped my opinion on gun control 180 degrees in the space of 90 minutes.

Michael & Me (2005) – In this provocative documentary, libertarian talk-radio personality and author Larry Elder takes controversial film director Michael Moore to task and deconstructs his anti-gun film Bowling for Columbine. Elder’s debut effort borrows freely from the opinionated Moore — including an animated segment in which Elder interviews a visibly uptight Moore — to defend the Second Amendment and the rights of Americans to own and use firearms.

Pray for bad weather!

We KNOW they’re skewing the polls to make Obama look like a shoo-in and discourage Republicans from going to the polls.

But I have a theory this could work against them … especially if the weather is lousy. Why get cold and wet if Teh Won is a shoo-in, right?

At PoliNation, I’ve been proposing, only half in jest, that we pray for bad weather. Tonight, I saw the article below, and I’m removing the half that was jest.

Political analysts admit that bad weather hurts Democrats, but has little effect on Republicans!

So do it! Pray for gray, cold, wet and windy. Beseech God to send sleet and snow showers to every Blue district in the nation.

And then make sure YOU and YOURS get to the polls. Share a dog sled if you have to. This election may well be the most important one in our nation’s history. It fershure is the most important you and I will see in our lifetimes.

October 26, 2010 – Bad news for Dems: Rain in the forecast for 2010 Election Day
http://thehill.com/blogs/ballot-box/house-races/125791-more-bad-news-for-dems-rain-in-the-forecast-for-election-day

In more bad news for Democrats, rain is in the forecast for much of the country on Election Day. According to Laurel Harbridge, a Northwestern University political science professor, GOP voters are not typically discouraged by rain. “Republicans are helped by bad weather … it does harm Democratic prospects.”

Other poll stories in the news:

It’s beginning to look a lot like 1980: “analysis shows most polls gave Reagan a narrow lead following the convention fallout, a lead which only blew open after the October debate. In 2012, the picture looks similarly close after the dust has settled from the party conventions” @
http://www.wnd.com/2012/09/its-beginning-to-look-a-lot-like-1980/

Unskewed polls show nearly 8 pt Romney lead: “Not a single major poll or approval/disapproval index favors Obama when Unskewed.com’s analysis is applied. The website says there is Democratic bias in polling because of over-sampling Democrats based on voter exit polls in the 2008 presidential election, when enthusiasm for a then relatively unknown but charismatic presidential candidate boosted Democratic Party voter registration and turnout to historic levels.” @ http://www.wnd.com/2012/09/unskewed-polls-show-nearly-8-point-romney-lead/
