President

Attack Ads: Despite spending $100 million on attack ads, the presidential campaigns and allies have little to show for their spending spree.  Public opinion polls have shown little to no movement over the last few months despite the ad onslaught.

Electoral College Tie:  CNN has two good articles on the possibility of a tied Electoral College and how it is quite possible. CNN also provides 8 possible ways for the Electoral College involving some very plausible combinations of states.  Click here to view the maps.

You Didn’t Build That: Four words (well technically five depending how you count) are hurting President Obama’s campaign as they have become a favorite attack of Republicans and the Romney campaign.  Here is a breakdown of how it is hurting Obama.

Rubio-Giuliani: Former NYC Mayor Rudy Giuliani has came out in favor of nominating Senator Marco Rubio for Vice-President.  Giuliani believes Rubio would be the strongest fit for Romney and for the GOP’s future.

Gun Control: President Obama has opened up on the gun control issue and Democrats are taking cover.  Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid refused to enter the political minefield brought up by the President as he refused to discuss any attempts to bring forward gun control legislation next year and said the Senate already has a full schedule this year.

African-American Turnout: Democrats are worried about African-American turnout in Pennsylvania.  Specifically they fear high unemployment and the new voter ID law will cause African-American turnout to be lower than in 2008. I tend to disagree with this analysis.  African-Americans turned out in 2010 in Pennsylvania at near 2008 numbers.

Pentagon Cuts: Four days before the presidental election, tens of thousands of Defense Department civilian employees will receive layoff notices if the fiscal cliff is not addressed.  This is electorally significant as a disproportionate number of the notices will be sent to Florida and Virginia residents.

Obama isn’t fooling anybody…..

I just came back from having a conversation with a few black gentlmen…I was in a local storage place where I have a stuff in storage….while I was making out my monthly check  ( the damn fee just went up $13! )….I overheard the guys in a spirited discussion…….the guys where complaining about Obama in general…and the Healthcare Bill specifically……

The points made where this……”Why hasn’t the President stood behind his promise for Heathcare?…..doesn’t he know he looks like s*#t just doing nothing?”…….’He made this big promise about this damn bill, and now he want’s to ask the Republican’s what to do??..Is he  for real?”…….I smiled and jumped in…….”What about the fact that he hasn’t campaigned for the Bill?”….the guys became animated again…….One guy asked…..” how are these Congressmen gonna go home without any cover?”….

We all shook our heads……..

The last thing I heard them say as I left was…..” the brother needs to toughen up ….it’s embarassing……..this ain’t gonna be his last fight……this s*#t’s for real”

The guys are right……..

Barack Obama needs to step up his game…….
