What did it take for the legendary singer Meatloaf to make his first ever political endorsement? The answer, the thought of of a second Barack Obama presidential term of course. Meatloaf endorses Mitt Romney.
Meatloaf endorses Romney … He took “the words right out of my mouth”
Forget swing state newspapers and major politicians, Mitt Romney tonight received a premium endorsement that nobody was expecting when rock legend Meat Loaf took the stage here and threw his support behind the Republican presidential nominee.
“I have never been in any political agenda in my life, but I think that in 2012 this is the most important election in the history of the United States,” Meat Loaf said in a black silk shirt with sparkly buttons down the front and sequined designs on the sleeves. “Storm clouds [have] come over the United States. There is thunderstorms over Europe. There are hail storms, and I mean major hail storms, in the Middle East.
“Mitt Romney has got the backbone,” he said. “Go out and vote. Let me tell you what: I know there’s one thing that you’ve been taught your whole life, is that you never argue politics or religion with your friends. But 2012 is completely different.
“There are storms brewing through China, through Asia, through everywhere,” Meat Loaf said. “And there’s only one man that on the other night, when President Barack Obama, God bless him, said to Mitt Romney, ‘The Cold War is over’ – I have never heard such a thing in my life.”
How big is this election in 2012? Individuals from everywhere are coming out of the celebrity closet in support of Mitt Romney as they cannot fathom another Obama term.
Thank You Obamanomics … VP Biden Campaigning in Oshkosh, WI a Day after Oshkosh Corp. Announced 450 Layoffs
The following story is a perfect example of why Barack Obama/Joe Biden do not need a second term. Thanks to Obamanomics and a failed job recovery, another company announces layoffs. I wonder how these 450 people would answer the question, are you better off today than you were four years ago?
Opps, talk about bad timing and why Obama/Biden are not running ob their record of failed job recover. One day before VP Biden campaigns in Oshkosh, WI … Oshkosh Corp, one of the largest area employers announced 450 layoffs as a result of expected cuts to the Department of Defense. There is nothing like going into a state to ask for four more years and praise the efforts of Obama after one of the states largest employers announces layoffs … DOH!
Vice President Joe Biden is campaigning in Oshkosh on Friday, a day after one of the largest area employers announced 450 layoffs — the result of expected cuts to the Department of Defense.
Oshkosh Corp. will layoff 450 manufacturing workers in January, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported Thursday, saying the Pentagon is expected to purchase few of the company’s military vehicles. The military cut its requested budget for ground vehicles by 32 percent in the 2013 fiscal year.
Hey Wisconsin, I bet this gets you jazzed to go out and vote for Barack Obama, doesn’t it!
ROMNEY NOW TIES WITH OBAMA IN WSJ/NBC POLL … TRENDING ROMNEY.
So much for Barack Obama getting any bounce from the second Presidential debate after many stated he had won. A new WSJ/NBC poll has the race a tow between Mitt Romney and Barack Obama at 47% a piece.In fact, not only did Obama not get a bounce from the second debate, Romney surged into a tie with Obama. This is the first time in this poll that Romney has pulled even with the president. We do not yet know what the poll sampling was for the latest poll, we will update when data becomes available.
Heading into Monday’s final debate and with just over two weeks until Election Day, President Barack Obama and Republican nominee Mitt Romney are now tied nationally, according the latest NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll.
Obama and Romney both get 47 percent among likely voters in the latest edition of the poll, conducted entirely in the aftermath of the second presidential debate last Monday. In the last national NBC/WSJ poll, which was conducted before debate season began, the president held a narrow, three-point lead over his GOP challenger, 49 percent to 46 percent.
In the previous WSJ/NBC poll from 9/26-9/30, Obama was up +3 with a +6D sampling. Prior to that, the WSJ/NBC poll for 9/12-9/16 Obama was up +5 with a +5D sampling. It is obvious that the polling trend is toward Romney.
Hot Air brings up the all important story from this latest poll. With an incumbent President just 16 days before an election polling only at 47% is terrible news for Team Obama. However, Obama is having serious issues with the gender gap for male and females as compared to his 2008 election victory.
Looking at some of the most important demographic groups, Romney leads among men (53 percent to 43 percent), Obama is up with women (51 percent to 43 percent) and they are essentially tied among voters in the Midwest.
However, as stated at Hot Air, it was a much different story when it came to the gender gap as Obama was +1 with men and +14with women.
In 2008, Obama won the election with a +14 gender gap over John McCain — +13 among women and +1 among men — on his way to a 7-point victory in the popular vote. That advantage has now flipped to Romney, even in the Marist poll. That’s a sixteen-point flip in the gap, and unless Obama expects a massive female turnout and massive male empathy on November 6th, it’s a very bad sign.
RCP has the race a tie as well; however, there are two skewed polls that should not even be considered and thrown out of the averaging. First,, the Hartford Courant/UCONN poll has Obama ahead by +3 has a sampling of +8D sampling. Second, the ABC/WAPO has Obama ahead by 3% with a poll sampling +9D. The IBD poll has to be questioned as well, Obama and Romney are basically tied with Democrats and Republicans; however, Romney is +10 with Independents. Yet some how Obama is ahead by 3%. How can that be except with a skewed over polling of Democrats? Really folks, who honestly thinks this is valid? In other words, in the cases if the sampling was more in line to be realistic, Romney would be ahead in both polls. If these polls are discounted, as they should be, Romney would be ahead in the averaging of polls by 1.5%.
Lifetime Democrat & Former Chrysler chairman Lee Iacocca Endorses Republican Mitt Romney for President … GOP nominee has a plan that “will enable a stronger America.”
Romney receives ringing endorsement from life time Democracy Lee Iacocca …
Add another Democrat to the list of individuals who is endorsing Mitt Romney for President. This is rather interesting, the auto industry titan Iacocca is endorsing Romney, even though Romney was against Obama’s auto bail out? Former Chrysler chairman Lee Iacocca is endorsing Republican candidate Mitt Romney for president stating “dozens of years of experiences in the public and private sectors” and because the GOP nominee has a plan that “will enable a stronger America.”
After a lifetime of voting for and supporting Democrats — and even declining appointment to the U.S. Senate from a Democratic governor — Lee Iacocca Thursday endorsed Republican Mitt Romney for president.
The blessings of the onetime Chrysler chairman are expected to help Romney in two highly competitive states: Pennsylvania, where the 88-year-old Iacocca was born and raised and is still widely respected, and in Michigan, where Iacocca rose to become a major figure in the auto industry and won international praise for cobbling together the government-backed loans that saved Chrysler in 1980.
In his endorsement message, Iacocca complained that “America is in deep trouble,” facing high debts and still suffering “anemic” economic growth. He said “hope and speeches won’t get our people back to work.”
Iacocca, who now lives in California, issued a statement saying he backed Romney because of his “dozens of years of experiences in the public and private sectors” and because the GOP nominee has a plan that “will enable a stronger America.”
Don’t fret Barack, you did get the Honey Boo Boo endorsement.
Liberal Newspapers Abandoning Obama … Orlando Sentinel Endorses Mitt Romney … Add The Tennessean as Well
WOW, Hell Just Froze Over … Liberal Newspaper have buyer’s remorse. The Orlando Sentinel and Tennessean endorse Mitt Romney …
What a difference four years makes. How bad is it for President Barack Obama … liberal newspaper, The Orlando Sentinel endorses GOP Presidential challenger Mitt Romney In an amazing reversal of fortune, the the Orlando Sentinel kicks Barack Obama to the curb and endorses Romney and laid out their rational for their decision. Their main point and the main issue for millions of Americans, the economy. Barack Obama has failed America as unemployment remains high, millions of Americans are unemployed or under-employed, as economic growth is “anemic” and the federal debt is through the roof over $16 trillion.
But the core of Romney’s campaign platform, his five-point plan, at least shows he understands that reviving the economy and repairing the government’s balance sheet are imperative — now, not four years in the future.
Romney has a strong record of leadership to run on. He built a successful business. He rescued the 2002 Winter Olympics from scandal and mismanagement. As governor of Massachusetts, he worked with a Democrat-dominated legislature to close a $3billion budget deficit without borrowing or raising taxes, and pass the health plan that became a national model.
This is Romney’s time to lead, again. If he doesn’t produce results — even with a hostile Senate — we’ll be ready in 2016 to get behind someone else who will.
But wait, Team Reelect Obama thought that was bad … Hell just froze over, The Tennessean also just endorsed Romney. Granted, the state of Tennessee is dark red and not in play for the 2012 Presidential election; however, the Tennessean is as liberal a rag as their is in the US. It is the newspaper that gave Al Gore his start in journalism. Nuff said. This is a newspaper that has endorsed every Presidential Democrat candidate, not this time. Who knew, pigs can fly.
The Tennessean decision to endorse Romney also pointed to Obama’s failures with the economy and Obama’s failures. He promised America “Hope & Change” and as the Tennessean, maybe only such change can come from Mitt Romney.
Should President Obama, as some suggested, have devoted his early political capital to jobs and debt reduction and pursuing Wall Street criminals, instead of health reform? Time will tell. But it’s clear whatever shaky bridges were burned in the push for health reform only emboldened Republicans to oppose his subsequent economic proposals. That has rendered much of his presidency ineffective.
Barack Obama was elected in 2008 with a call for hope and change. Perhaps the change he spoke of could only come with the help of Mitt Romney.
OUCH! Can you say the rats are abandoning the sinking S.S. Obama? Even liberal print media is starting to understand that Obama is not the answer, even if they believe in his ideology. Just how bad and an epic failure must Barack Obama be to lose the endorsements of some of the most uber-lib print media in the United States? But don’t worry Barack, you got the Honey Boo Boo endorsement.
