Looks like Obama is pulling ahead in the polls, beyond the margin of error. I think the DNC gave him a nice boost!
Too bad his mom didn't have a dnc instead of birthing him!
Still have 2 months to go. Lot's can happen.
Can't believe there are people out there that are gullible enough to believe him after him lied the first time and hasn't kept his promises. He wants another 4 years to set up his cronies with more government money so when he gets out of office, they will pay him back. He needs mucho dinero to get his testicles out of Michele's purse.
LMAO, Man! did that open some doors to have some fun with this polls thing.
I just wonder which head is he pulling,
or is it double digit, heads he's pulling?
On the straight and narrow, I'm not worried about him,
it's the people who put the turtle on the post in the 1st
Place!? I'm experiencing changes of the amount of
the dollars I co-pay now in the medication department.
Looks like the disappearing donut hole is getting filled
by upping the cost month to month or VA 3 months, I've not
used the VA for my Insulin and other high dollar medications,
but I cross the donut hole in 2 months and then the insurance,
Kicks in making it great from March to December. So Now it,
it looks like a 100 percent VA and they don't cover some of my
medications. They use the old stuff. I'm not complaining though
I have good luck with most of it still doing it's intended job.
Then they serve narcotics by the quart, looks like a motor oil bottle,
and it's use is a have to measure. That is a pain, so I'll probably
stay with the civilian doctor I have that makes it "Tri-care"
so from the Veterans arena support the troops and stop obamacare,
If you say Medicare is broken, I'm happy with it! So, please,
do tell, what is broken? As a Veteran I want an exemption status to
the current system?
The Democratic convention was more interesting, in my opinion, than the GOP convention.
Also, the attendees were much more diverse.
You know....the left has an almost scary fixation on skin color.
There is a good reason skin color is an issue. The reality is that the United States has a much more varied ethnic identity than it did even 30 years ago. This was not seen at all in the Republican convention, there were basically older, white men. Young people, any Hispanics or Blacks or Asians were not there. Not too many women of any skin color were there. The country is changing, and the R party needs to start changing with it. They still won't admit to climate change, after all the destruction nature caused because of all the pollution, and over development which leads to flooding. The fact they won't admit to evolution and insist that the Earth is 6,000 years old, when science clearly disproves it, is just silly. I don't find fault with people's religions, but when science clearly tells you the evidence is not what is in the Bible, the people need to find a way to still believe what they wish, but not deny scientific evidence. Religion should be about Truth.
I haven't seen anyone argue (at all, let alone successfully) that the RNC was ethnically diverse.
The party is changing, though.
The old white guys are making way for young white guys.
Commonality: white guys.
Scene 1 Witness the elephant morphs into the mastedon!
We like rainbows.
You got a problem with that?
Differing hues and backgrounds speak to a diversity which I trust more than the opinion from those representing an exclusive demographic.
The bump was quite substantial while the GOP convention gives Mr. Romney nothing.... I don't know how long the bump will last. It will be up to the President to mop the floor with the gaffe prone Romney during the debate season.

Let's not forget how far Carter was ahead in the polls before the election. Or Dukakis.
I doubt by reminding people of how far ahead Carter was at one point in his re-election, will have no ill effect on the Obama re-election.
Yep and it is a good thing cause the flip flopper and chief is a bad thing for thic country which is why he will not give specifics to his tax plan.
The President is ahead in the polls right now you know.
Js Cham you got me wrong I am a supporter of Obama. I was talking about Romney. You are right about the lead in the polls but the Romney camp is losing traction real fast with the lies and flip flops. I mean one minute he is against Obamacare and as of this past Sunday he is for many provisions. The Romney camp will not give any specifics of the tax loopholes they would close. In fact they say wait until after the election and we will show you our plan Scooby doo says HUH!!!
No you misunderstand.
Jimmy Carter was ahead and lost to Reagan. Micheal Dukakis was ahead and lost to GHW Bush.
The same can happen here.
I don't know Chams. I say this because when fox news begins to hammer you for specifics and you can't give them you are in trouble. We all know fox news is for the republicans and they are now screaming for specifics. Romney cannot keep dodging specifics. I believe the debates will determine the election this time. You will see. If you read my hub "RNC and DNC convention reviewed" I believe the clear choice has been made.
I suggest you look deeper into the accuracy of those polls. There are indications that the only poll this week with a representative sampling cross-section not overloaded with Dems was the Zogby Poll which basicallly calls the race a dead heat at this point. The others are distorted polls conducted by ABC and CNN heavily loaded on the Democrate voter side. Since when is such actions a service to the public? To hell with the truth...let's just make it so, seems to be the mantra of too many in the media today. ~WB
It's hard to be an impressive and consistent debater, when you don't have the courage of your convictions. I spend a lot of time in Massachusetts and Maine and Romney was as inconsistent as governor as he is now. He pretended to be in favor of healthcare reform, but then would change his mind and want a watered down version. Then when Ted Kennedy put on the pressure he buckled and agreed to much more than he wanted. Now he's saddled with supporting what he never really liked.
Ted no it's not a bad thing. But Romney won't just say that and be done with it. If he just said, look I compromised and this is how it turned out and 60% of the Massachusetts population is happy they have it, and stuck to it - no one would have an issue. It's his waffling and pandering that's driving a lot of people crazy - and he's always done it. He's not his father.

NJ Governor Chris Christie, who as recently as a week ago was a harsh critic of Obama's leadership has a new BFF: Barack Obama.He's been effusive (some believe TOO effusive) in his praise for the POTUS and his handling of Sandy, going on numerous news shows.So what do you think his motives are?...

Did the first presidential debate change your mind about either candidate?
by Elijahokelley 11 years ago
I personally think that Romney will win because Obama's supporters won't be as enthusiastic and riled up as they were in 2008. He'll likely have losses in key demographics, such as the African American vote, that won't be large but may still add up to hurt him whether these votes transfer to Romney...
