AP: Polls Tighen - Obama leads by ....1?

Keep hope Alive!

"WASHINGTON (AP) - The presidential race tightened after the final debate, with John McCain gaining among whites and people earning less than $50,000, according to an Associated Press-GfK poll that shows McCain and Barack Obama essentially running even among likely voters in the election homestretch.

The poll, which found Obama at 44 percent and McCain at 43 percent, supports what some Republicans and Democrats privately have said in recent days: that the race narrowed after the third debate as GOP-leaning voters drifted home to their party and McCain's "Joe the plumber" analogy struck a chord.

Three weeks ago, an AP-GfK survey found that Obama had surged to a seven-point lead over McCain, lifted by voters who thought the Democrat was better suited to lead the nation through its sudden economic crisis."

Again, as I've been telling you on the show the current polling is bogus and off the chart because they sample more than 50% more Democrats tha…

Upstanding Democrat who Replaced Mark Foley Caught in Sex Scandal

Note to Pelosi, the Swamp.....

"West Palm Beach Congressman Tim Mahoney (D-FL), whose predecessor resigned in the wake of a sex scandal, agreed to a $121,000 payment to a former mistress who worked on his staff and was threatening to sue him, according to current and former members of his staff who have been briefed on the settlement, which involved Mahoney and his campaign committee.

Mahoney, who is married, also promised the woman, Patricia Allen, a $50,000 a year job for two years at the agency that handles his campaign advertising, the staffers said.

A Mahoney spokesperson would not answer questions about the alleged affair or the settlement, but said Allen resigned of her own accord and "has not received any special payment from campaign funds."

Senior Democratic leaders in the House of Representatives, including Rep. Rahm Emanuel (D-IL), the chair of the Democratic Caucus, have been working with Mahoney to keep the matter from hurting his re-election campaign, the Mah…

FACT: Obama was a New Party Member!

It's not not a matter of conjecture, it's a matter of fact.

"In June sources released information that during his campaign for the State Senate in Illinois, Barack Obama was endorsed by an organization known as the Chicago "New Party". The 'New Party' was a political party established by the Democratic Socialists of America (the DSA) to push forth the socialist principles of the DSA by focusing on winnable elections at a local level and spreading the Socialist movement upwards. The admittedly Socialist Organization experienced a moderate rise in numbers between 1995 and 1999. By 1999, however, the Socialist 'New Party' was essentially defunct after losing a supreme court challenge that ruled the organizations "fusion" reform platform as unconstitutional.

After allegations surfaced in early summer over the 'New Party's' endorsement of Obama, the Obama campaign along with the remnants of the New Party and Democratic Socialists …

McCain/Obama Live Debate Thread ***Video Added Watch It Here!***UPDATE: McCain wins on points, but disappoints.

Beginning at 9pm EST, live thread of the debate. Here's what I'm looking for from McCain.

1. No more Mr. Nice Guy. McCain needs to hit Obama on his associations with Ayers and Wright and not back down. Millions of Americans have not seen this information, it's time to let them know.

2. Tell voters that he - not Obama - warned of the Fanny and Freddie mess and that the root of the mess is the inaction of Obama and his Democratic cohorts over the last five years. Let the American people know that he tried to stop it but the Democrats blocked attempts at reform. The result is $800,000 of their money going down the drain to federalize the free market.

3. Get Obama off his script. Make him mad, get him flustered and searching for words, which he has done before. Show America just how much of a fraud he is when he's not being told what to say by his handlers.



UPDATE: FACT CHECK per the Corner:

"Obama's letter to Paulson and Bernanke was written on March 22, 2…

The 14 Lies of Joe Biden in Last Night's Debate

Should change his name to Pinocchio Joe! Count 'em, 14 lies Joe told in the VP debate last night.

1. TAX VOTE: Biden said McCain voted “the exact same way” as Obama to increase taxes on Americans earning just $42,000, but McCain DID NOT VOTE THAT WAY.

2. AHMEDINIJAD MEETING: Joe Biden lied when he said that Barack Obama never said that he would sit down unconditionally with Mahmoud Ahmedinijad of Iran. Barack Obama did say specifically, and Joe Biden attacked him for it.

3. OFFSHORE OIL DRILLING: Biden said, “Drill we must.” But Biden has opposed offshore drilling and even compared offshore drilling to “raping” the Outer Continental Shelf.”

4. TROOP FUNDING: Joe Biden lied when he indicated that John McCain and Barack Obama voted the same way against funding the troops in the field. John McCain opposed a bill that included a timeline, that the President of the United States had already said he would veto regardless of it’s passage.

5. OPPOSING CLEAN COAL: Biden says he’s…

C-BS Cooks the Polls (Again) for Biden/Palin Debate - Luntz Group (using real people you can see) puts the win squarely with Palin

As it should be, Palin won.



C-BS cooked up a similar poll of so-called uncommitted (people who usually don't vote anyway) after last week's democratic debate. The breakdown nearly 2-1 democrat respondent making the poll useless for anything except a headline. CNN's poll used a likewise breakdown. The quickness at which CNN posted their results - within ten minutes of the debate - proves they knew exactly how well Palin did.

The point is with Luntz's group is that it was decidedly with Palin - enormously so - and although a smaller sample it was balanced and diverse and actually had people you could see.

In essense the polls are meaningly and cooked, Palin won over America last night just as she did during the RNC. It's hugh and the polls will show it in the coming days.

Obama Wrong Change for Children - The Truth about Obama and Abortion

****Warning*** the second video is graphic but needed to make the point that Barack Hussein Obama is not the friend of children some would have you believe. In fact you might have seen this video where children praise Obama.



But this video tells you how Obama really feels about the children, especially the disposability of the unborn.

What Palin has to do tonight - Semi Live Blog ***UPDATE: Sad Joe and the Nixon Shadow

Sarah Palin doesn't need to do anything tonight except be herself. Do not, I repeat, do not believe the MSM or the polls, they are missing the point on her - as they always do - big time. In spite of the MSM assasination attempts on her, Palin is still packing in crowds and it's growing - NOT shrinking.

You should no by now that polls are created to make news and it's in the question that the news is formed. Subsequently when polls are seemly showing Palin sliding in popularity nothing is further from the truth.

We see this every election. We saw it in 2000 and especially in 2004 when the media threw everything but the kitchen sink at George Bush. I remember hearing the same moaning and groaning that it was all over and that we'd all be calling John Kerry president on November 5th.

It didn't happen. It didn't happen because no matter what the polls said or the leftwing media elite threw out there America made up it's own mind and in the end Georg…

Picking on Palin - Hey Joe, tell us about the Pipeline!

Odds are that Mr. Hairplugs - who didn't know that FDR was NOT president in 1929 wouldn't know. Yet the MSM continues it's gang rape of Sarah Palin by going after her answer to perky Katiie about the Supreme Court case Marbury vs. Madison.

"Tonight's installment of Katie Couric playing Roger Mudd to Sarah Palin's Ted Kennedy features the much-anticipated Supreme Court non-answer.

The bad news for McCain: This offers yet more evidence that Palin has thought little about many policy issues facing the country and world.

The good news for McCain: This is the last footage Couric has. We think."



Again, not a surprising take on from the Obama Apologetic - aka The Politico (Official News Magazine of the Obama Campaign). But the fact is that when Biden was asked about specific Supreme Court decisions he couldn't cite either, but then he's not a feisty hocky mom that makes Jonathan Martin so angry he could just spit.

Senate Passes HANDOUT with SWEETENERS attached!

The Senate Vote?

"WASHINGTON - After one spectacular failure, the $700 billion financial industry bailout found a second life Wednesday, winning lopsided passage in the Senate and gaining ground in the House, where Republicans opposition softened.

Senators loaded the economic rescue bill with tax breaks and other sweeteners before passing it by a wide margin, 74-25, a month before the presidential and congressional elections.

In the House, leaders were working feverishly to convert enough opponents of the bill to push it through by Friday, just days after lawmakers there stunningly rejected an earlier version and sent markets plunging around the globe.

The measure didn't cause the same uproar in the Senate, where both parties' presidential candidates, Republican John McCain and Democrat Barack Obama, made rare appearances to cast "aye" votes.

In the final vote, 40 Democrats, 33 Republicans and independent Sen. Joe Lieberman of Connecticut voted "yes." Nine …
