The Foreign Policy Debate or Kissing Your Cousin

Posted by John Hitchcock on 2012/10/22

I’ve been watching the third Presidential Debate and I’ve come to the conclusion that, for the most part, two cousins have been busily pecking each other’s cheeks and playfully punching each other’s shoulders. Mitt Romney’s Foreign Policy is clearly weak, but Obama’s Foreign Policy is disastrous, so there’s no win here for either one.

For the most part, both candidates have been respectful of each other. That’s standard operating procedure for Romney, but a great improvement for Obama, and a far cry from the insanity and inanity of Biden in his only debate. As I said, for the most part. When Romney talked about the number of Naval ships being the smallest since the World War I era, Obama countered mockingly and derisively. “It’s true we have fewer ships than 1914 but we also have fewer horses and chariots (or something to that effect).” That’s not going to win over undecided voters, but it is candy for the Loony Left. “We have these things that airplanes land on, called aircraft carriers, and ships that go underwater, called submarines.” That sort of garbage will not play among the independents.

Overall, the two candidates are differing by degree and not oppositional. And the moderator is doing his job correctly, asking the questions, moving the debate along, and then getting out of the way so the two candidates can make their own points (or not make any point at all) all on their own without his help.

Serius XM Satellite Radio “70s On 7”

Posted by John Hitchcock on 2012/10/22

I have Dish Network.
It has Serius XM Satellite Radio. A whole lot of channels of music.

I turned my TV on to the Serius XM Satellite Radio “70s on 7” channel. Oh my, the memories! And the great music!

I could listen to all the great music from 1990 till now on my half hour lunch break, and still have time for quiet, peaceful reflection. Not so with the music coming out of the 1970s. I could spend my entire 12 hour shift listening to only the best of the 1970s and still miss out on massive amounts of great 70s music.

What qualifies as music in the post-modern world of today cannot hold a candle to even the mediocre music that came out of the 1970s.

Vote For Barack Obama And Kill A Baby

Posted by John Hitchcock on 2012/10/22

Barack Obama is pro-abortion. He’s so pro-abortion that he voted against the partial birth abortion ban, which prevents murderers from delivering 90 percent of a baby, sucking that baby’s brains out, then delivering the rest of the baby. He’s also so pro-abortion that he voted against a law that requires doctors and nurses to care for a baby born alive after an attempted abortion, purposefully allowing that living, breathing baby to die.

From On The Issues.org:
 

1997: opposed bill preventing partial-birth abortion

In 1997, Obama voted in the Illinois Senate against SB 230, a bill designed to prevent partial-birth abortions. In the US Senate, Obama has consistently voted to expand embryonic stem cell research. He has voted against requiring minors who get out-of-state abortions to notify their parents. The National Abortion Rights Action League (NARAL) gives Obama a 100% score on his pro-choice voting record in the Senate for 2005, 2006, and 2007.

Opposed legislation protecting born-alive failed abortions

Obama has consistently refused to support legislation that would define an infant who survives a late-term induced-labor abortion as a human being with the right to live. He insists that no restriction must ever be placed on the right of a mother to decide to abort her child.

On March 30, 2001, Obama was the only Illinois senator who rose to speak against a bill that would have protected babies who survived late term labor-induced abortion. Obama rose to object that if the bill passed, and a nine-month-old fetus survived a late-term labor-induced abortion was deemed to be a person who had a right to live, then the law would “forbid abortions to take place.” Obama further explained the equal protection clause of the Fourteenth Amendment does not allow somebody to kill a child, so if the law deemed a child who survived a late-term labor-induced abortion had a right to live, “then this would be an anti-abortion statute.”

When you vote for Barack Obama, you vote for this evil monstrosity and this crime against humanity.

CBS/Quinnipiac Agenda Driven Polling In Ohio

Posted by John Hitchcock on 2012/10/22

So, CBS News and Quinnipiac combined to generate an outrageously biased poll of Ohio voters. CBS/Quinnipiac is going to have to hurry up and un-bias its polling if they are wanting to use their “history of accuracy” when polling in the future. If they want reasonable people to think they’re Honorable.

CBS/Quinnipiac found Obama trailing among Ohio independents by seven points but somehow leading overall by five points and (barely) reaching the magical 50 percent barrier. Think about that. Among Republicans in the Buckeye State, Obama is absolutely gone. Among independents in the bellwether state (accurately picking the US President something like 27 times out of the last 29 elections, or 25 times out of the last 27, either way, that’s over 100 years of being a bellwether), Obama trails by 7. And yet, CBS/Quinnipiac has the audacity to declare Obama leads overall by 5. The numbers do not at all add up that way, unless CBS/Quinnipiac puts its left thumb on the scale. And that’s precisely what they did.

I’m inclined to think that Ohio is going to be close all the way to the election. But I’m also inclined to think that the electorate will be more than 26% Republican. That’s the sample in this poll, which has a laughable D/R/I of 35/26/34. In 2008 [link to CNN], the D/R/I was 39/31/30, while in 2010 [link to CBS] it was 36/37/28. We have plenty of data on enthusiasm in this election cycle, precisely none of which points to an 11-point drop in Republican participation in two years in this race.

Yet, with a D+9 advantage and Republicans only at 26% of the sample, Obama can only muster a 5-point lead in the topline. That was his margin of victory in 2008 in Ohio, by the way, but Obama won Ohio independents by eight points in that election. In this poll, he’s down seven points, a fifteen-point flip in the gap. That’s the most telling indicator thus far, and the one that cuts through the sampling biases.

In the Democrat wave of 2008, Republicans made up 31 percent of the Ohio vote. Absolutely all indicators are this is not a Democrat wave election, and yet, CBS/Quinnipiac has given Republicans a 5-point disadvantage from the 2008 Democrat wave election. All of the energy and tide is on the Republican side, none of it is on the Democrat side. Even in the horribly sampled CBS/Quinnipiac poll, Obama has lost 15 points among independents from his 2008 5-point victory in Ohio.

Looking at the actual numbers, and removing the agenda-driven CBS/Quinnipiac thumb from the scale, Obama trails by 3 or 4 in Ohio. And that is in line with Ohio’s over a century history of being a bellwether and national trending. And, as CBS/Quinnipiac noted, even in its D+9 poll that severely undersampled Republicans, Obama lost 10 combined points to Romney in 4 weeks in a state that Obama cannot afford to lose. And the trend is for Obama to further shed votes.

As a 44-year resident of the Buckeye State, I am rather pleased with the un-fudged Ohio data and the Ohio trend. I can smell doom and gloom (and panic) from the Socialists running the Democrat party from my new Texas home.
