I saw Fox propaganda almost in unison telling us that "Romney is now hitting back and hitting his stride" Its more like they all got a memo to tell the public the same lie. LOL From my prospective its more like he broke his leg on the track and is flailing around in some kind of desperate measure to make it about anything but his business history, outsourcing of American jobs and trying to desperately hide his taxes. LOL

I thought you don't watch Fox.

We all knew you do, though.

Rush has occasionally played audios and videos of the leftist media hitting the same talking points and using the exact same words and phrases. All of them. On the same day. Like monkeys chattering amongst themselves.

So what's unusual about employees within a single company using the same talking points?

Nothing.

So much for your breaking news.

I find this very encouraging because anything presented by Faux Noise is partisan lying and sheer nonsense.

On my drive to work today, NPR told me Obama and Romney are in a deadlock in 12 key battleground states and that Obama's lead over Romney is only 2%.

I'm not going to vote for either of them this year but I'm frankly shocked that Romney is quite frankly breathing down Obama's neck.

It seems that the economy is the biggest issue and that Romney's base seems more mobilized. There are a lot of young first time Obama 2008 voters that are still wondering why we are in afghanistan and working McJobs. They can't bring themselves to vote for either candidate this time around and are just sitting out.

Generally yeah but even a broken clock is right twice a day....and NPR is essentially saying the same thing only without the propaganda laden embellishments. With some of the recent economic numbers souring, Romney might actually win this thing....which I thought was a near impossibility months ago.

The VP selection is going to be key for him and he is close enough that he doesn't have to go for a desperation hail mary selection like McCain did. Even a respectable selection is going to provide a boost when compared to Biden.

P.S. If I'm a strategist, at the very first VP debate I'd go right for Bidens throat and point out all the jobs he helped send over seas when he voted in favor of NAFTA.

Fox Noise? That one is slightly better than "Faux News"; I would stick with that.

Certainly he's "hitting back." And he should, or risk perishing amidst the scandal he finds himself in the middle of. All candidates have to respond to the "other sides" strategy. As for "hitting his stride," I hope this is his "stride." Because if it is he's doomed to failure and the President will more easily be re-elected.

As long as Romney refuses to release more tax returns, hitting back is like trying to play white noise to drown out noise at a rock concert.

As it stands right now, the election is on a razors edge per NPR (you know, the right wing news ).

I know you are a straight-ticket dem so I think it's ironic that you are so sure this is in the bag that you are actually contributing to the malaise that is hurting Obama this time around.

LOL if I were a dem organizer your comments are the LAST thing I'd want to hear. Are you working for Romney now or what?

Politics 101 is attack-attack-attack. The minute you start defending you lose.

What I'm waiting for are the faux bombshells each side will "drop" in the week or two before the election about the other. Won't be time to investigate or find out the truth, just pure politics of smear and innuendo that go nowhere.
