How many synonyms are there for appalling?

The people interviewed in this video are “show up at rallies and buy campaign t-shirts” level Obama supporters. All but two of them had NO IDEA what happened in Benghazi, Libya on 9/11/12.

One person who knew explained it to her friend in a blasé voice. The other said that Obama’s response had showed “real leadership.” Why? Because he “brushed it off his shoulders.”

I don’t even know what to say.

Obama’s lead with 18-29 year olds not worth much

Click on graphic to embiggen.

Polls in September and October of this year found 67% of registered voters under 30 claimed they were “absolutely certain” they would vote. Given that only one in four voted last time, that sounds like a lot.

But polls from the same period in 2008 put that “absolutely certain” number at 80%. Only 18% actually made it to the polls that year.

In addition, 10% more Romney than Obama youth voters say they will definitely vote this fall.  If they shortfall by approximately the same amount, that 19 point lead isn’t going to get Obama many more total votes than Romney gets from this demographic.

Oct 22 Pray for Our Nation

Cast your burden on the LORD,

and He shall sustain you;

He shall never permit the righteous to be moved.

Psalm 55:22

Father, You are so wonderful. Thank You for caring about our burdens. Open our hearts to Your Spirit and let us listen to Your voice. Strengthen us, O God with confidence in You, that we may live for You and glorify Your Name. Father, we praise You for all the gifts that You have given us. Draw us close to You that we may see Your glory. Amen.

EXTRA TODAY: This was in my Bible reading today. I want to name it and claim it for the debate tonight.

Speak boastfully no longer,

do not let arrogance issue from your mouths.

For an all-knowing God is the LORD,

a God who weighs actions.

He guards the footsteps of his faithful ones,

but the wicked shall perish in the darkness.

1 Samuel 2: verses 3 and 9

Oct 16, 2012: Las Vegas, NV, Frank Luntz Focus Group: Romney Dominated 2d Debate [3:54]

I counted 16 Obama 2008 voters and 7 not-Obama 2008 voters in the focus group.

I believe the group was all Undecideds when they started and that the same people are watching each debate, then sitting for this post-debate mini-poll.

In 2008, Obama won Nevada by +12.5%. If I did the math right, that group represents a +30% difference for Obama, which in itself is interesting, the whole group having started as Undecided, KWIM?

It’s a little hard to see all the hands in video, but I counted 6 of the Obama 2008 voters saying they’re sticking with Obama and 9 that had decided by the end of the second debate to vote for Romney.

This is worth watching to hear what these folks had to say.

I especially liked the lady in red, middle row, second from the left. She said she was not Undecided between Obama and Romney; she was Undecided between Romney and Not Voting, but she says, very emphatically, that Romney’s performance in the debates had been extremely impressive!

I was saddened by the two Obama ladies who seemed to be clueless about the devastating impact that Obama Democrats’ economic leadership has wrought on American women or that Obama himself oversees what female White House employees describe as a “workplace that is hostile to women.”

Romney SAID in the second debate that his gubernatorial administration had the MOST women of any state in the union! Did they not HEAR THAT?!

As for that lady in green who said, “I never heard Romney say he wants to outlaw abortion,” ……..argh. Is that the measure of women’s rights in this country? We can legally kill our unborn children? On that, I agree with Feminists for Life:

The foreign policy debate this evening will probably not move too many opinions,but Romney has a great opportunity to show people he has as much foreign policy experience as Bozo had when he was immaculated.He’s been getting daily briefings the last few weeks and if the past is any indication he will be well-prepared to take on the artist-formerly-known-as Barry.Look for him to pound bozo on Benghazi,the Iran shenanigans and hopefully the possible deal he cut with Putin to sell out Eastern Europe.
