A series of polls have come out in a number of swing states which shows Barack Obama building his lead. This headline below is representative of headlines in many news outlets, but things were actually even somewhat worse, as a new poll in Michigan showed Obama with a double-digit lead after Republicans halted their advertising in that state.

"Barack Obama leads in swing state polls of Virginia, Ohio and Florida."

I googled Mitt Romney. Google will come up with many choices. Select the top choice. When this page comes up, go all the way down to the bottom of the page to "contact" and write to him saying that he needs to fight and explain to Americans in the swing states both what Obama is doing wrong and what he will do differently. Especially mention the price of gasoline, and that Romney wants to drill and make America energy-independent. He is for the pipeline, exploration and energy jobs while Obama wants "green" energy. He has to fight or he will lose!

Everyone should write to Romney and tell him to fight.

    Mr Heuer stated...Darrell in your 4:56 post above is that some of your "discussion to articulate perspective." Just asking


    Can you please be more clear Mr Heuer... what perspective are you talking about that led you to ask the question? In addition, no need for insincerity as you never

    are "just asking"... as you intent is to put down and mock. Be happy to answer a "sincere" question from you.

    -That may indeed be so. However, I'm confident Romney will turn the economy around so much that an extra $2,000 a year payed in taxes will be overshadowed by the huge increase in their incomes.

    Romney Politely Cleaned Obama's Clock

    A clip:

    Mitt Romney politely cleaned Barack Obama's clock tonight. A lethargic and at times tired looking President Obama was out-hustled, out-facted, out-energized, and out-informed by Former Governor Mitt Romney. Completely unlike Romney's convention speech, tonight he focused on strong economic issues, developed his philosophy of limited government, and convinced me beyond a shadow of a doubt that he is in fact a pro-growth tax reformer who wants to lower the rate, and broaden the base in a revenue-neutral fashion that will actually create jobs and spur the economy.

    No need to be so harsh Mr Liebich. The empty chair has feelings and most likely feels insulted in such a comparison

    Mr Taves stated...What is missing is the effort -- something that you should put towards your blogs. Come see me Joanne; we need to talk."

    Then Ms Bobin mocked... You misunderstand, Mr. Chang. Mr. Taves is smarter than the average bear. He said so himself:

    Mr Taves, I think you will have a long wait before Ms Bobin will be brave enough to venture out your way... Her ability to see things around every corner is well documented and I perceive it frightens her.

    01. Joanne Bobin posted at 11:26 am on Thu, Nov 17, 2011... I have always known that Ms. Parigoris was one of the "bigots around every corner" here in Lodi, but her post today proves it beyond a doubt.
    02. Ms Bobin posted at 5:44 pm on Wed, Jun 15, 2011... "I would buy a ticket to watch Ms Bobin go for a walk through Lodi... would be priceless."
    Don't worry, Mr. Baumbach. While walking through Lodi I don't have to look under rocks, through windows, etc. All I have to do is enjoy a cup of coffee at Starbucks at 6AM and eavesdrop on the Boys Club (retired police, fire and sheriffs) who convene there daily, to hear some hair-curling bigoted talk. How do I know what their occupations were? One would have to be deaf to not hear them brag about their huge retirement checks and benefits.

    Of course Mr Chang... Obama has it locked in the bag... relax, watch more cartoons and sip on a nice cool one.

    We already realize its over and are bent over just waiting for Obama's treat.

    This is the GOP's one-two punch in their war on the middle class and the working poor.

    First they lower your wages and then they raise your taxes.

    CNN Poll of Poll: Battleground States. (They were spot on in 2008)

    Florida - Obama up 4
    Ohio - Obama up 8
    New Hampshire - Obama up 9
    Iowa (of all places) - Obama up 6
    Pennsylvania - Obama up 10
    Nevada - Obama up 4

    Nationally - even Fox has Obama up 4

    Fans of "stench filled holes"...

    Steve, I believe you are on a roll. Even on Fox Chris Wallace said that the proposed tax cuts were going to raise the deficits yet again. Mr Wallace couldn;t get Ryan to say what deductions he was going to eliminate to prevent the $5Trillion deficit they create. Of course getting rid of deductions essentially null and voids any tax cuts for the wage earning middle class. Of course the no-wage earners still get the tax benefit as well as their business deductions.

    Mitt's policies may well reduce unemployment....... IN CHINA, but the massive tax increases he is proposing for the middle class and the working poor will DEVASTATE the American economy.

    After four years of Romunism, 8% employment will just be a fond memory that parents share with their children as they huddle around their camp fires.

    18% unemployment?

    28% unemployment?

    47% unemployment?

    These percentages won't mean a thing to Mitt Romney as long as his cronies in the 1% are stashing more and more away in their Cayman Island hoards.

    Stan, if you want to pour your sacrifices into Mitt's offshore accounts, be my guest just don't ask me to contribute to Mitt and his Silver Spooned Mafia.

    The middle class would gladly sacrifice, if they actually believed in the direction that has been laid out. We are acutely aware of Obama's direction -- talk about an unbearable stench that fills a darkness that won't submit. The test is what vision is Romney willing to share with us? We don't know really, but compared to the stench filled hole, it's got to better. Let's watch and see.

    If Romney had any honor whatsoever, he would drop out and donate his campaign funds to the poor and needy.

    What Mitt Romney will do is raise your taxes by eliminating middle class deductions. Non partisan analysis shows that taxes for the average couple making 50 to 150k will rise by at least $2,000 a year under the Romney plan.

    That $2,000 will do nothing to build infrastructure, provide services or reduce the debt. All it will do is make Mitt's ultrawealthy pals just a little richer.

    Mr Gullicksen's letter is symptomatic of the failed GOP campaign. Stand and fight said Lionitus to the Spartans and of course remember the Alamo as the brave words before the inevitable. But there is stll no call to remember G Bush

    Letter stated...Everyone should write to Romney and tell him to fight

    Humm... if it takes letters to a candidate to convince that canidate to fight, that canidate already lost.

    Maybe it would be better to actaully participate in the fight with Romney instead of listening to the media that is doing its best to make sure Obama wins...
