Way to Stay Classy Democrats … Bill Clinton Politicizes Hurricane Sandy, Compares Romney Election to Hurricane Sandy
I guess when Obama and Democrats accuse Romney of murder, being compared to a deadly hurricane is par for the course.
It did not take long at all for Democrats to politicize Hurricane Sandy. Yesterday, former president Bill Clinton used the threat of the pending hurricane to compare to next week’s Presidential election.Comparing the election to a deadly hurricane, really Mr. Clinton? Way to keep in classy Slick Willy.
“We’re coming down to the 11th hour. We’re facing a violent storm,” Clinton said according to the Connecticut Mirror. “It’s nothing compared to the storm we’ll face if you don’t make the right decision in this election.”
Although, Clinton says that unless the “right” decision is made we are facing a storm worse than Hurricane Sandy. Maybe he is referring to Obama’s reelection as what could be worse?
Mitt Romney Breaks Through the Obama Ohio Fire Wall … Rasmussen Presidential Poll – Ohio: Romney 50% – Obama 48%
ROMNEY BREAKS THRU OBAMA’S LAST LINE OF DEFENSE IN OHIO …
Mitt Romney has had the momentum on his side leading up to the 2012 Presidential election. A number of battleground states have been trending to Romney like Florida, North Carolina, New Hampshire, Virginia and Colorado.
This had caused Barack Obama to go all in for the state of Ohio. However, it appears that strategy has failed as Mitt Romney has broke through Obama’s last line of defense. According to the most recent Rasmussen poll, Romney now leads Obama, 50% to 48%.
The latest Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of Likely Ohio Voters shows Romney with 50% support to President Obama’s 48%. One percent (1%) likes some other candidate, while another one percent (1%) remains undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
Add to this impressive trending for Romney in battleground states that he is now tied with President Obama in Wisconsin, a state that Obama won in 2008 by double digits. Also, Romney is tied with Obama in Iowa. Mitt Romney has also taken a 4 point lead in the Rasmussen Daily Swing State tracking poll, 50% to 46%.
The full Swing State tracking update offers Rasmussen Reader subscribers a combined view of the results from 11 key states won by President Obama in 2008 and thought to be competitive in 2012.

The Wrath of Hurricane Sandy and the Damage in her Wake … 17 People Dead, Millions Out of Power, Fire, Flooding, Wind and Snow
Our prayers go out to those affected by the massive storm that engulfed the Mid-Atlantic, Ohio Valley, NY-NJ area and New England states.
It was a storm like that had never been seen before as Hurricane Sandy left death and destruction in her wake. At least 17 people so far have been confirmed dead; however, it is hard to believe that this number will not rise. Power is out across the east coast from the Carolina’s to Ohio to NY and NJ to New England. Levees are reported to have broke in northern New Jersey and flooded the town of Moonachie. Yesterday a 13 foot surge of seawater, 3 feet above the previous record, gushed into NYC, flooding tunnels, subway stations, homes and business. system t
A terrible fire ignited in Breezy Point, Queens in New York City that destroyed at least 50 homes.So far no casualties have been reported; however, due to power outages and darkness, communication is at a minimum.
The neighborhood, Breezy Point in the borough of Queens, had been extensively flooded by Sandy’s record storm surge, and firefighters were hampered in their efforts to bring the blaze under control, a spokesman for the New York Fire Department said.
No casualties were immediately reported and the cause of the fire was under investigation.

The Weather Channel: Superstorm Sandy: Status and Impact Maps
Numerous towns along the New Jersey shore, Delaware, Maryland, Virginia, Long Island, Connecticut, Rhode Island, flooded with Monday’s morning high tide. The Monday evening high tide brought historic storm surge flooding to the New York City metro area.
Monday night, all-time record tide levels were set at The Battery in Lower Manhattan, breaking a record from 1821, as well as Sandy Hook, N.J., shattering the previous record from the Dec. 1992 Nor’easter and Hurricane Donna in 1960.
It should be noted…another high tide Tuesday morning will feature additional coastal flooding, particularly along southern Long Island, New York Harbor, the Jersey shore, the Delmarva Peninsula, and southern New England, as southerly winds continue to keep water levels higher than normal. Current indications suggest the flooding will not be as severe as it was Monday night.

Without a Clue, Barack Obama Suggests He Will Create ‘Secretary of Business’ Position if He Wins 2012 Presidential Reelection
Barack Obama just has no clue when it comes to the economy …
President Obama floated a trial balloon that he would create a ‘Secretary of Business’ position to help the economy if he is reelected for a second term. Good grief, just what America needs, more government bureaucracy. As responded to by Mitt Romney, the US does not need a ‘Secretary of Business’, they United States needs a president who understands business, job growth and the economy.
President Obama says he would like to establish a “secretary of Business” if he wins a second term.
In an interview with MSNBC, the president said he wants to consolidate a number of business and trade-related agencies, creating a “one-stop shop” for oversight.
“I’ve said that I want to consolidate a whole bunch of government agencies. We should have one secretary of Business, instead of nine different departments that are dealing with things like giving loans to SBA [the Small Business Administration] or helping companies with exports,” he said in an interview with MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski and Joe Scarborough.
Obama’s statements amount to a late-campaign effort to burnish his business credentials against Republican Mitt Romney, who has highlighted his success as a private equity executive throughout the presidential race.
Hmm, a Secretary of Business, whose job it is to promote US business. Wow, who would have thought of such a thing? Oh wait, the PJ Tatler has it … don’t we already have a Department of Commerce?
It is rather unbelievable that Obama has had four years to create this position and he had three Presidential debates to discuss the plan with America and did nothing. There is a reason why Romney leads in the polls for who can better fix the American economy. Obama is just without a clue and has no plan except for more of the same pathetic and anemic job growth.
Charles Woods, Father of Slain Navy SEAL Tyrone Woods Says to Obama: “Better to die the death of a hero than it is to live the life of a coward”
No truer words have ever been spoken …
As reported at The Daily Caller, Charles Woods, the father of murdered Navy Seal Tyrone Woods stated on Fox News ‘Geraldo At Large’ last night that President Barack Obama did not do all that he could of to prevent the death of his son and three others including Ambassidor Stevens. All four were murdered by terrorists in Benghazi, Libya as the consulate was over run by terrorists.
And remember this, Mr. President: My son and the others died heroes and it’s better to die the death of a hero than it is to live the life of a coward.
American Hero, Navy Seal Tyrone Woods
Woods has been highly critical of Obama and his administrations efforts or lack thereof, that he [Obama] did not do enough to prevent his son’s death. Woods poses the question, what would have happened if such an assault occurred on American soil? Remember, a consulate and embassy id considered American soil.
“Any attack on an American consulate is an attack on American soil. There were American citizens that were attacked for seven hours on American soil a couple thousand miles away from Washington,
“My question of the president would be this: Your Honor, I respect your office as president. But if this attack on American citizens, on American soil, happened 2,000 miles away from Washington, D.C. — say in Los Angeles or in Seattle — would you have waited seven hours before you sent the first airplane? Would you have waited seven hours until the attack was over? Would you have waited a couple of days until you had all of the videos and all the information before you responded in a responsible military way?”
Charles Woods has been highly critical of Obama and has asked for answers as to why no one pulled the trigger and helped his son when the repeatedly asked for help and were denied. Instead, Obama has done nothing but dodge questions. Sadly, we have a Commander in Chief that is more concerned with politics and reelection at all cost than he is providing answers to the family of an American hero.
Instead Obama and his minions initially and for weeks blamed the the murders on a video tape.

Andrew Sullivan Makes Another Ignorant Race Card Reference … If Romney Wins Florida And VA, It’s The ‘Confederacy’
LIBS continue to play the race card because they have nothing else …
Once again we have a liberal playing the race card when it come to the election of Barack Obama. This time it’s the Daily Beast’s Andrew Sullivan who made the ignorant and racially charged comment, “If Virginia and Florida go back to the Republicans, it’s the Confederacy. Entirely. You put a map of the Civil War over this electoral map, you’ve got the Civil War.” It is truly pathetic that such attempts to play the race card has become a platform of the Democrat party. There is real racism in America and folks like Sullivan and his ilk are trivializing it.
PBS reporter Gwen Ifill said that “we can’t ignore” the possible factor racial animus may play in deciding the election, noting that the poll indicates that, on some level, people are still willing to admit “racial bias.”
Sullivan then added: “If Virginia and Florida go back to the Republicans, it’s the Confederacy. Entirely. You put a map of the Civil War over this electoral map, you’ve got the Civil War.”
Conservative panelist George Will rolled his eyes. “I don’t know,” said a skeptical Ifill.
Really, so if you vote for Romney you’re a racist? America, who is sick and tired of being called a racist because you do not agree with Obama’s socialist and failed agenda? How desperate are Democrats when this is all they got? Smearing anyone who votes for Romney, really? This is simply disgraceful, but typical of what the Democrat party has become. American Power provides a map of 2004 of GWB’s win which would be the same as Romney’s attempted electoral vote 2012 victory. Also, I would bet that Reagan’s 1980 and 1984 victories would look similar as well. Were they all racists too? This map is not the look of the Confederacy, its the look of a Romney victory.
Sullivan’s comments are perfectly representative of the left’s hopelessly desperate and utterly despicable politics of racial fear-mongering. Progressives have been attacking conservative presidential politics as racist since at least 1968, when Republicans deployed the so-called “Southern strategy” in the election of Richard Nixon to the White House. The South has been in the GOP column for decades. It’s just the way it is, not shocking and not a racist conspiracy. That’s the 2004 map above, where George W. Bush was reelected with 286 votes …
A quick history lesson for Andrew Sullivan and Libs, the Confederate South was made up of Democrats.
EXIT OBSERVATION: Barack Obama and Democrats continually playing the race card have probably done irreparable damage to a black Democrat ever being nominated or elected president in the future. Who wants to put up with this garbage of constantly being called a racist just because one disagrees with a person of color’s policies and agenda? Especially since it was white America who voted Obama into office.
EXIT QUESTION: Andrew, what is more racist, whites voting in Obama at a 50-50 percentage or blacks voting for Obama at 96%? Hmm?
Minnesota a battleground state?
A virtual tie in Minnesota between Mitt Romney and Barack Obama? Really, could this be true? The mere fact that we are talking about it this late in the game for the 2012 Presidential election is hardly a good think for President Obama.
According to a Minnesota Star Tribune poll, Mitt Romney only trails Obama by 3 points, 47% to 44%. Just last month Obama had an 8 percent lead in the Land of 10,000 Lakes. This is eye brow raising to say the least.
As the presidential race tightens across the country, a new Star Tribune Minnesota Poll has found that it is narrowing here as well, with President Obama holding a 3-point lead and Republican Mitt Romney making gains in the state.
The poll shows Obama with support from 47 percent of likely voters and Romney earning backing from 44 percent — a lead within the poll’s margin of error of plus or minus 3.5 percentage points.
Last month, Obama had an 8-percentage point advantage in the Minnesota Poll. Romney has apparently cut into the Democrat’s advantage among women since then and picked up support from Minnesotans who were previously undecided or said they would vote for a third-party candidate.
Hot Air has a breakdown of the voting demographics and how Obama is struggling mightily. Obama won Minnesota in 2008 by 10% over John McCain, with Obama only polling at 47% with less than 10 days to go, that can’t be good for Team Obama.
In 2008, Obama had a 19-point edge in the gender gap, +3 among men and +16 among women. This time, Obama has only a +1 — he’s up 14 among women but down 13 among men. Obama still leads by 6 among independents, which he won by 17 points in 2008, but he’s only got 43%. Late breakers are not likely to flow to the incumbent at this stage of the election; if the were inclined to support Obama, they’d already be in his corner now.
That’s true of the overall number as well. If Obama can only get to 47% in the Star Tribune poll with nine days left to go before the election in Minnesota, which has gone Democrat every presidential election over the last four years, this state is in play — and that’s why both campaigns are suddenly starting to spend money here.
If Minnesota is truly a battleground state in 2012 and Obama has to worry about losing the state, he could be in for a long, long election night.
UPDATE I: Blue Crab Boulevard asks, could this be another “wave” election? It is possible as Obama is under performing in many states that he easily won in 2008. States that he barely and surprisingly won in 2008 like Indiana, North Carolina, Colorado, New Hampshire, Florida and Virgina are all but gone in 2012. However, it is states like Minnesota, Wisconsin, Nevada and Pennsylvania that he easily won in 2008 that are actually in play this close to election. Even in solid blue states like New Jersey, California and Connecticut, Obama is under performing.
Sandy ready to unleash her fury …
The East Coast and North East braces for Hurricane Sandy. It is being called the storm of the century, the Perfect Storm, Part II. Some areas are going to get huge wave surges, some massive amounts of rain, other 100 mile an hours gusts of wind and other areas snow accumulations in the feet. Some 50 million people are supposed to be affected by Sandy and 10′s of thousands of people have been evacuated.
Tens of thousands of residents were ordered to evacuate coastal areas Sunday as big cities and small towns across the eastern U.S. buttoned up against the onslaught of a superstorm threatening some 50 million people in the most heavily populated corridor in the nation.
For all those in harms way, please be safe, our prayers are with you.
Satellite loop – if this does not look ominous, I am not sure what does
Winds of 25 to 45 mph with gusts of 65+ mph along the immediate coast will continue. A storm surge of 4 to 6 feet above ground level is expected in eastern North Carolina if peak surge occurs at high tide. Bands of heavy rain on the outer periphery of the circulation will continue to wrap into the eastern North Carolina. Hatteras, N.C., reported 5.29 inches of rain as of 5 p.m. Sunday afternoon.
Millions prepare for Hurricane Sandy – President declares state of emergency for New York and Massachusetts.
As Hurricane Sandy stayed on track to barrel the East Coast, states of emergency were declared from North Carolina to Connecticut, with residents being evacuated, schools and transit systems shut and food and supplies flying off store shelves in a sure sign people were preparing for the worst.
Sandy was at Category 1 strength, packing 75 mph winds, about 270 miles southeast of Cape Hatteras, N.C., and moving northeast at 14 mph as of 2 p.m. Sunday, according to the National Hurricane Center in Miami. It was about 575 miles south of New York City.
The Hurricane is on path to meet a winter storm and a cold front, plus high tides from a full moon, and experts said the rare hybrid storm that results could cause havoc through 800 miles from the East Coast to the Great Lakes.
