Forget Intrade and FiveThirtyEight — relatively reliable prediction models which both show President Obama with upward of a 75 percent chance of re-election. The most reliable leading indicator in the world is showing that the president has the election wrapped up.

Dick Morris —  the Fox News analyst who is always wrong — said Wednesday: “If the election were held today, Mitt Romney would win by a margin of  four or five points.” This allows everyone else to predict with near certainty that Barack Obama will win a second term.

Since Morris was forced out of the Clinton White House in a scandal that involved toes and a prostitute, he has amazed and delighted Fox News audiences by being wrong about everything, earning a reputation as the “world’s worst political pundit.”

Morris’ many greatest hits include predicting that the nominees in the 2008 presidential election would definitely be Hillary Clinton and Condoleezza Rice; naming an exact date — July 27, 2012 — when President Obama would come and take Americans’ guns; and asserting with 100 percent confidence that Donald Trump would run for president in 2012.

Most impressive of all, Morris gets paid well to make these predictions based on his access to what he calls “the real polls.”

What’s strange about the Republican establishment this election is that Dick Morris is no longer an outlier. Karl Rove and the rest of the right-wing media are very well aware that Mitt Romney’s campaign is crumbling. But they insist that what’s actually going on is a concerted effort by the mainstream media to inflate Obama’s lead and demoralize Republican voters. They’re unskewing polls and arguing sample size as if they believe in witchcraft-like statistics.

If I were conspiracy minded, I would suspect that Fox News had Dick Morris predict a Romney victory  just to make Democrats overconfident.

The Obama campaign must be aware that Morris has guaranteed its triumph, but they say they’re still running as if they’re down ten points in every swing state. They know that more than the future of the country is at stake. What would happen to reality as we know it if Dick Morris were actually right about something?

  • Dick Morris, like Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck and all the other talking heads make a lot of money entertaining their faithful audiences. They feed them the red meat they want to hear, and by so doing they are the mentors of those who can not think for themselves. They should not be taken seriously. As to who is going to win in November, take a look at any of the many electoral college maps available on the Internet and anyone with a minimal amount of intelligence will see that President Obama will be re-elected by a substantial majority. Not only will he get the 270 votes needed to win, he will have close to 300.

      I agree with you, everyone needs to VOTE, all Obama supporters and anyone leaning Obama need to VOTE. That being said, i find the current state of what’s now calling itself the rebublican party is just sad. i grew up republican. my parents, most of their friends, grandparents, and my great-grandparents, and some great-great grandparents were republican. one of my great-great grandfathers was an early menber of the republican party in Indianpolis and knew Benjamin Harrison (i think they kept their horses in the same livery stable.) the repubilcan party i grew up in was fiscally responsible, and socially moderate, like an Teddy Roosevelt, Eisenhower, Nixon (at his best) Rockefeler and Ford repubilcan, with a little of Reagan and Bush 41 (at their most moderate) thrown in for good measure. i voted for Reagan in ’84, and i think most of those people i mentioned would be considered RINOs by today’s republican/tea party republicans

      i think a lot of the republican party now is fiscally irresponsible & socially medieval. And that wing of the rebublican party is inventing it’s own bizzarro world, they decry an Obama that they’ve invented, and now they’re inventing their own polls becaues they can’t deal with the world as it is. Someone once said that people are entitled to their own opinions, but not their own facts. the problem now is that because of Fox (faux) News, and the talk radio blowviators (like Rush) invent thier own facts. Some decry MSNBC as doing the same, but it’s a false equivelence.

      we need (at least) two stromg political parties in this country. i don’t know what will happen in the future, but i hope republicans will reject the tea party and move back towards the center of american politics.

      • nlocnil1860

        until / if the republicans ever become moderate again i’m voting democratic whenever i can. i didn’t leave the republican party it left me (as Reagan once said about the democrats)

        Obama/Biden 2012!


      • It would not surprise me if the Tea Party break away and becomes a political party representing the far right, with the GOP representing the center-right and the Democratic party representing the center and the left.
        You are right, the Republican party of today is nothing like the GOP of the Eisenhower era. Fiscal responsibility has been replaced with fiscal irresponsibility, with deficit spending being the centerpiece of their economic agenda. As for social issues, there is no point even talking about it, they are so far to the right they are no longer in the ballpark. It will be interesting to see what happens within the GOP after this election.

        • latebloomingrandma

          If the Republicans lose big in Nov., the far right should break off and form their own party–how about the Know Nothings of the 19th century? they seem to want to go back in time anyway.

    • RobGinChicago

      Dick Morris looks like he’s been eating toes, not just licking them…lots & lots of toes.

      • Maybe it is what is left of Mitt’s toes every time he shoots himself in the foot. Who knows, maybe he will take shooting lessons from Cheney and aim elsewhere….

    • 101strac

      I hope you’re right Dominick, God knows I want it to be just that way. But I was born with a certain level of pessimism that won’t allow me just yet to embrace what I am witnessing as a sweeping Obama victory. I keep waiting for the other shoe to drop. I can’t believe the radical repubs will simply accept a defeat at the polls, and go silently off into the night. I don’t believe they will ever stop trying to undo the Obama presidency by whatever means it takes, legal or otherwise. So to counter that, I believe each and every Obama supporter has to become an activist, a counterbalance to the insanities being foisted on us every day by that party. I promised myself I wouldn’t ramble on, and so I won’t, except to every Obama supporter reading this, to PLEASE let nothing get in the way of you casting your vote for President Obama on Nov. 6th

      • TheBigMook

        ‘Waiting for the other shoe to drop” hahaha. Dick Morris is also “Waiting for the other shoe to drop” – so he can suck on some more toes!

  • daniel bostdorf

    Dominick you are right…..but I have a SIGNIFICANT cautionary note here when you simply dismiss fascist in a too polite manner, in my opinion….This is a bit more serious than “entertaining.”

    Quoting you: “Dick Morris, like Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck and all the other talking heads make a lot of money entertaining their faithful audiences. ” Yeah they do….so? Who are these fascists in sheeps clothing?

    Dick Morris is an incarnation of every Judas that has been in history. A sympathizer of the worst ilk….he makes me ill…..

    It’s “good old propaganda” that as you say: “They (fascists) feed them (Teaparty and the “red staters.” the red meat they want to hear, and by so doing they are the mentors of those who can not think for themselves.”

    There are countless examples here at National Memo of posters from obozomustgo to montanabill to sisterh to carsrus…etc…that exemplify “those who can not think for themselves.”

    Bumper sticker mentality at its best….

    It’s a bit more insidious than that….the fake name posters here are intentional distractors and part of the fascist propaganda.

    Finally…you leave out the 2 biggest players behind this 2012 version of german nazis facism:

    Karl Rove (Joseph Goebbels) and the Koch Brothers (German industrialist and non- Jewish bankers of the 1930’s)…who propped up Hitler and the “Brown Shirts and Gestapo for the “new world order” of their day..

    It’s scarier than you think out there.

    Nazi propagandist Joseph Goebbels said it best:

    “If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.”

    or as Adolph Hitler stated:

    “Make the lie big, make it simple, keep saying it, and eventually they will believe it”

    Sounds like Foxnews eh?

    You also state that: ” anyone with a minimal amount of intelligence will see that President Obama will be re-elected by a substantial majority. …”

    The problem is…well…we live in a society of half wits, uneducated Paris Hilton, Kardasian, and celebrity worshippers who narcisstically latch onto the inane, mundane drivel and fascist thinking that dulls a society’s senses.

    Reality TV is part of the overall intentional “dumbing down of the masses” that fascists over the course of thousands of years implement when they want to take over.

    Whom do you know that knows ANYTHING about history? Do you know anyone with a comparative religion or humanities background? Do you know of anyone who knows of Will and Ariel Durant and their 13 volume “The History of Civilization?”

    Romney/ryan et al want to eliminate the Department of Education in their collective final “coup d’eta…

    Definition of coup d’eta:
    ” a sudden decisive exercise of force in politics; especially : the violent overthrow or alteration of an existing government by a small group”

    Hello Teaparty and Karl Rove eand the Koch brothers….and the members of te HOuse and Senate that sympathize with them.

    And you thought the Vichy Government on 1940’s France was bad? Just what if Obama is defeated and the Republicans regain control of the Senate and Presidency.

    Samuel L Jackson, crudley but correctly tells us to “Wake The F**k Up…
    Quoting Jackson:

    ““Sorry, my friend,” Jackson tells the family’s parents. “But here’s no time to snore. An out-of-touch millionaire has just declared war. On schools, the environment, unions and fair pay. We’re are all on our own if Romney has his way. And he’s against safety nets. If you fall, tough luck. So I strongly suggest you wake the f**k up.”

    I am NOT of the mindset that guarantees Obama anything. I believe as you do that he will be elected….but..

    The fascists are trying to steal this election through bogus voter ID requirements, Republican controlled Supreme Court, “fascist packed superpacs” pouring hundreds of millions of military-industrial-complex international secret money against Obama…and heaven forbid the 6th grade educated masses believe it…

    This situation and period in history has been done before, and the masses, who cannot remember history or too stupid to know REPEAT THE MISTAKES OF HISTORY!

    • Al Hubbard

      Do you know of anyone who knows of Will and Ariel Durant and their 13 volume “The History of Civilization?”

      I not only know about it but own all 13 volumes……

      And I say Wake the F*#k up…….

      • daniel bostdorf

        Same here Al…

        Let’s wake up to an America free from fascism once and for all..
        Thank you for caring…

        Durant: vol IV, pg. 1083. “We have not fully recovered from the Dark Ages….”

    • sigrid28

      DB: I’m holding up my hand as someone familiar with the humanities, well read in history and religion, and an American literature Geek , who also has set eyes upon “The Story of Civilization,” and not just the Disney version.

      My dissertation adviser prepared a two-volume American Literature anthology. In his biographical sketch about Ralph Waldo Emerson, he notes that while Emerson penned essays such as “Self-Reliance,” he kept his fire-fighting gear at the ready beside the back door, because he belonged to the local volunteer fire department. This election cycle we seem to be called upon to be not only the intellectual avant-garde–but the fire brigade as well, bringing up the rear with buckets sloshing.

      We dare not become complacent about voting, and getting out the vote, and protecting the ballots. I caught something yesterday, a problem that might have affected thousands of absentee ballots. Here in Iowa, absentee ballots that are sent inside postage paid envelopes won’t count if they arrive after November 5th without a postage cancellation mark. But not all post offices put cancellation marking on prepaid postage envelopes. I made a bunch of telephone calls. This time the town Democrats got right on it, and made sure that the central post office of the state DID put cancellations on all absentee ballots. There’s more than one way to put out a fire. Being a liberal is not all just reading by candlelight.

    • montanabill

      You might want to find out what a ‘fascist’ and fascism is. Then compare that definition with the take-over of GM, the controls of the EPA, Obamacare, and the demands by every government agency for more regulation.
      It is an evil sounding word, which I suppose is why you use it. But since it far more describes Democrat goals than Republican, you might want to choose a more appropriate evil sounding word.

      • take-over of GM, If President Obama hadn’t taken action, the unemployment, would be much, much higher.

        EPA – Do you have any idea how many children are born with birth defects, think about how many more we would be effected, if we didn’t have regulations.
        These are there for our protection.

        • montanabill

          It is probable that bankruptcy would have forced a bigger reduction of the work force, but we don’t know that. We do know the law would have been followed, contracts would have been renegotiated, GM management would have been restructured and product lines would have been restructured to economic reality instead of a green dream.

          Like most government bureaucracies, the EPA has a function, about 25% of what they really get involved in doing. They are not elected and have no oversight. It is hard to measure the amount of good against the amount of bad, but the point was, and is, it is a fascist operation, under the definition of fascism.

          • MsJoanne

            Do you have any idea what catastrophe would have befell the downstream manufacturers had GM filed bankruptcy? It would have put them out of business, which would have impacted every auto manufacturer worldwide, as they share vendors.

            Tens of thousands of people would have been out of work, including people in the towns where those vendors are located because no income means people not shopping, going to restaurants, etc., which impact entire towns.

            But that reality does not fit in with your ideology. Truth has a liberal bias (and an understanding of basic economics).

          • So you avoid actually answering his question and fall back on your canard of imagination. But way to parrot the MSNBC talking points. GM and all the downstream manufacturers would still exist if GM and Chrysler had accepted proper bankruptcy restructuring. The unions wouldn’t have been given the company that they caused to be buried in unsustainable debt and labor costs and bondholders would have been more fairly taken care of. Only a fool would invest in GM or Chrysler through bonds now as the Federal government has made it perfectly clear that they can rewrite the rules in ways that favor Democratic constituencies anytime they damn well like, contracts and legalities be damned. That being said I wouldn’t agree with the fascist label even if only looking at it as economic fascism. Economic fascism would be a state controlled and regulated mixed economy. What has happened under Obama and Bush 42 and preceding Presidencies is more Crony Capitalism. The government only partially controlled the car companies and that only in selecting leadership and top executive salaries. Furthermore it has been looking to sell shares taken as collateral for the taxpayer money. Not exactly fascist there.

          • MsJoanne

            Tell me who was going to fund a restructured bankruptcy? Bain Capital wouldn’t fund it, for crying out loud. I’m not parroting MSNBC – try The Economist!

            Turn off the right wing nonsense. Your union bashing and ‘Democratic Constituencies” is indicative of your parroting Fox and the like. At least you managed Democrstic vs. Democrat. Bravo for that.

          • It’s not union bashing, it’s fact. Why don’t car companies except when forced through prior union contracts expand in union states? Why are the all the new car manufacturing plants built in non union southern states? Obama’s auto bailout didn’t even restructure GM to be competitive. For the most part it transferred ownership from bondholders to union members. The average labor cost for the restructured GM is still $56 an hour. Ridiculously higher than any competitor. GM will be going through another bankruptcy or I guess potential bailout in the next couple of years. So I guess your premise is that GM will need to be bailed out repeatedly because the possibility of losing any union jobs is anathema.

            The federal government could have provided bridge loans without doing a union giveaway and destroying normal restructuring practices.

            I certainly didn’t bring up Bain capital. I don’t watch cable news as it has no value. I read both right wing and left wing news sites as I am not aware of any meaningful in depth moderate news sources other than possibly CNN which is somewhat moderately left of center. Unions are a Democratic party constituency. If you deny that, you are obviously wrapping yourself in your biased liberal shawl for all to see. 92+% of all union donations to political causes in the 2008 and 2010 election went to Democrats.

      • The U.S. government bailed out GM, and by so doing they saved tens of thousands of jobs and allowed time for that corporation to restructure, rid itself of unprofitable product lines and bad investments. GM trades in the stock market, and it is once again the largest auto company in the world. The Obamacare mandate does require everyone to get an insurance policy from for profit insurance companies, which is the anti-thesis of socialism and has nothing to do with Fascism. Instead, it has a lot to do with the need to ensure everyone has the medical care we need, and we all share the burden of paying for it. The system the GOP wants to take us back to relied on the use of Emergency Room for free SOCIALIZED medical care for the uninsured, a practice that has been a major contributor for the escalating cost of medical care in the USA. Expecting everyone to be responsible, instead of expecting those who have insurance coverage to pay higher premiums to compensate for the free care given to the uninsured is neither socialist nor fascist. It is plain common sense and a policy that once it is fully implemented should reduce, or as a minimum contain, the cost of medical care in the USA. BTW, medical insurance is a major burden for U.S. corporations and one of the reasons we are not as competitive as we could be.

        • montanabill

          GM is not out of the woods. It is not the largest auto company. It still has loser product lines (see Volt) It’s future is still far from certain. And the action poisoned the well for possibly needed future investors. It was the action of a fascist government. Obamacare forces private insurance companies, hospitals, and providers to dance to their tune…fascism, no matter how you seek to excuse it.

          • MsJoanne

            Looks like someone might benefit from investing in a dictionary. And an education might be of benefit, too. Learning from the likes of Rush Limbaugh and Glenn Beck…well, that’s the antithesis of learning.

          • montanabill

            It is easy to throw stones when you don’t explain yourself. If I’m wrong, I can handle it, but you need to be specific with your criticism.

      • Maybe you should take your own advice and learn what fascism is. One of the main philosophies is racism.

        • montanabill

          Fascism has nothing to do with racism. If racism was practiced in a fascist country it was an ‘also’ and not a tenant of the political system.

    • jebediah123

      Mr. Bostdorf—–I am 72 years old and with overwhelming sadness (no exaggeration) I share your concerns about the intelligence of many of the general voting population.

      I remember back in 1980 (working in a machine shop) you could talk reasonably to just about all of your fellow employees about political leaders and/or politics in general. Everyone seemed concerned with one thing—-to reach a solution to current problems.

      However, today it has degenerated into an ocean of misinformation and conspiracy theories against the sitting president. The worst thing I witness is the complete, trusting belief of many people in the hate messages spewing from Limbaugh, Beck, Hannity and the like.

      Do I think Obama will win? Down deep I think he will but I am fearful of some of the EXTREME hate towards him (to me, based on racism).

      Sometimes I wish the election were held today—I don’t know how much more I can take listening and reading all the Republican and Tea Party bullshit.


      • Oh please! I can’t stand the President because he is an incompetent loser! Because he brought a bunch of thugs to the White House. (Really, Secret Service protection for Valerie Jarrett on her vacation but not enough for our embassy staffs in the middle east on 9/11?!?!?!?) why was it OK to rain hate down on President Bush and not be thought of as anti-white, but if one points out (like Bill Clinton did) that Obama is an AMATUER then you are a racist!?!?! Oh please, his policies are what people hate, and rightly so.

        • Bodine666

          —– Oh please! I can’t stand the President because he is an incompetent loser! —–

          Right. Who else but an incompetent loser can rise from poverty to become the President of The United States?

          —– Really, Secret Service protection for Valerie Jarrett on her vacation but not enough for our embassy staffs in the middle east on 9/11?!?!?!? —–

          It is not the job of the secret service to protect embassy personnel.

          —– Oh please, his policies are what people hate, and rightly so. —–

          What people and which policies? Be specific. (I know, details don’t exist in the conservative bubble, just debunked talking points.)

          • robinjhadley

            Obama “rose from poverty?” Where have you been, numbnuts?

          • Bodine666

            And another conservative chimes in straining the limits of the intellectual capacity common to all cons; a childish attempt at insulting. I noticed you made no effort to dispute the facts. Only the typical infantile conservative response.

            I can tell you where I’ve not been. I’ve not been drinking the fox kool-aid you clearly have dripping from your chin. Conservatives are so clueless they swallow the steady stream of lies fox spreads daily. One couldn’t help but feel pity for these delusional, ignorant roger ailes supporters were it not for the fact they are supporting the anti-American fox pundits in their efforts to cause massive harm to America and the American way of life. Conservatives laying claim to patriotism is the equivalent of referring to Benedict Arnold as a patriotic American.

            No reasonable person would want to be known as a dupe for the right-wing wannabe tyrants. Conservatives wear it as a badge of honor and when confronted with the facts their faces generally glaze over and they go into chanting mindless talking points.

            The difference between the traitor Arnold and the right-wing conservatives is that Arnold did it for personal gain. Right-wing bozos do it because they are so easily manipulated and duped. This happens because they lack anything that vaguely resembles thinking skills. When it comes to recognizing the lies spread by the fox propaganda network conservatives are completely in over their heads. The best they are able to do is follow the orders of their masters and parrot talking points that have been so thoroughly debunked even morons won’t repeat them on a bet.

          • robinjhadley

            Blow it out your ass, faggot. Its good for you.

          • Bodine666

            I’m not sure what you’re talking about but the way you describe it as being ‘good’ I must assume you have first hand experience. I’ll take a pass on it though.

            Now, you’ve had a second chance to dispute the facts and you still made no effort. Just resort to the typical childish name calling that is the trademark of conservatives.

            You sound as though you’re filled with anger. Can’t say I blame you there. When you start parroting right-wing talking points then you’d better be prepared to back them up with evidence. Since there is no evidence to back up any of the right-wing talking points all there is left is to start with the infantile name calling. But that’s your problem.

            Don’t forget to wipe the egg off your face.

          • robinjhadley

            go fuck yourself you boring twit.

            —–Blow it out your ass, faggot. Its good for you.—–
            —–go fuck yourself you boring twit.—–

            You call someone else boring? You’re entire vocabulary is limited to one-liners worthy of the town imbecile after he fell out of a stupid tree and hit every branch on the way down. No substance. No argument. Just infantile whining. I get it. You’re a legend in your own mind looking to boost your status among the hebetudinous crowd. I have no doubt that inside that daft, fruity, vacuous, cob-webbed dome, completely devoid of gray matter, you believe these are profound statements that will bring you admiration from the barmy tea-bagger crowd. Watching a dog have a go at your girlfriend’s leg also brings admiration from the tea-bagger crowd as does breaking beer bottles over your pate. Perhaps you’ve broken a few too many? Keep drinking the right-wingnut kook-aid. You’ll graduate up to the level of Simpleton, Class III in no time at all.

            What’s up with the obsession with sex? Too many secret sessions with a pedophile priest? Is that the reason you spew venomous nonsense like an evangelical speaking in tongues? Have you considered asking for psychological help? All the anger you carry just isn’t normal. Perhaps you could benefit from some counseling.

            Three chances to make an argument to backup your unfounded claim and the best you can do is dribble more of the same puerile, stripling tea-bagger flotsam? I don’t know whether to laugh at you or pity you.

          You must bee a flag waving member of the Repugnican Party. Fortunately the voters chose not to let the Repugnican with their hired guns the Koch brothers buy the Presidency. Your candidate for the office of President is only running for the 1% not those in the Middle Class. He could care less for those below his status which actually covers 99% of the citizens of this country. As for the vice presidential candidate he has no idea as he is also part of the 1%. He and his running mate will sell the rest of us down the river as they want to privatise mediccare and then I have no doubt they will try to privatize Social Security. They will attempt to let Wall street Bankers and other Investors get their hands on the trust fund for investment purposes. We all watched what these thieves did during the crash of the housing markets as well as the banks just prior to election of 2008.

      Right you are, Mr. Bostdorf. I wish some of these hatemongers would just shut the hell up, like Limbaugh, Dick Morris, Hannity, Glen Beck, et al. What they say makes us thinkers sick. Keep up the excellent work, Mr. Bostdorf.

    As of 11pm today….49% Obama

    44% romney…

    Early voting tells us all..




    defeat the fascists!

  • daniel bostdorf

    Ecomonic Partriotism!

    Grow the economy with middle class….not the 1% class!

    Romney’s own words:

    “here are 47 percent of the people who will vote for the president no matter what. All right, there are 47 percent who are with him, who are dependent upon government, who believe that they are victims, who believe that government has a responsibility to care for them, who believe that they are entitled to health care, to food, to housing, to you-name-it — that that’s an entitlement and the government should give it to them. And they will vote for this president no matter what. … These are people who pay no income tax. Forty-seven percent of Americans pay no income tax. So our message of low taxes doesn’t connect. And he’ll be out there talking about tax cuts for the rich. I mean, that’s what they sell every four years. And so my job is not to worry about those people. I’ll never convince them they should take personal responsibility and care for their lives.”

    • Yup, anyone that disagrees with him and isn’t paying him lots of money is not human to Mitt Romney.

      • MsJoanne

        Which makes sense since Mitt Romney isn’t human. He severely needs a firmware reboot with a new and improved personality chip.

  • Jim Lou

    The vote in a state where it is already heavily Democrat doesn’t mean much unless there is a very small turn out. I doubt that will be the case.

    It is the state where there is still some doubt is where every vote will count. It is those states where there must get out the vote efforts. Unfortunately, that is very costly and can lead to the issues that the Republicans complain about.

  • adler56

    Morris should go back to the only thing he’s any good at- sucking prostitutes toes. That shows what a weird jackass he was and is. Why would Clinton get involved with this dumbass who spends all his time trying to convince us he’s not like Truman Copote.

  • Who is the biggest, “Liar — Liar! Pants on Fire;” Republican? That would be, the Dumbaugh! followed closely by Karl Rowe, and Dick Morris. They have, for some time, been Moral Relativists; when it comes to the Truth, in Political Campaigns.

    Has anyone heard anything – – at all – – relative to Romney’s campaign issues or promises, other than cutting taxes on the Rich; and taking a, Meat Ax to the Federal Budget, that most certainly would impact jobs for the Middle or Lower Classes? Oh, yes! There is one other issue that he has been talking about: Loosening Regulations on other Sectors of the Economy; in addition to the Financial Sector. Can you imagine! The nerve of the Guy! Does he think the American Public is, “Nuts?” Fool us once; shame on You! Fool us twice; shame on us!

    If, God forbid, Romney should win, what will Limbaugh, Hannity, etc. do to keep getting their $100 million contracts? What would be FOX’s purpose? They would all be out of a job. Maybe that is why they are acting so stupid. Maybe they really don’t want Mitt to win as it could cost them their thrones.

    • This is much closer to the truth than most people are willing to credit. These professional valves of resentment would be nowhere without Clinton in the 90s and now Obama.

      There is ZERO downside to Obama’s reelection for the right-wing noise machine. (In 95% of cases, they don’t actually believe all that stuff about gun seizures and black helicopters…their gullible audience does, which advertisers love, because they can sell them on gold and bomb shelter supplies and whatever).

    • MsJoanne

      I don’t know…they managed to cheer-lead throughout the entire Bush administration. They’ll go on and on about how great Romney is and how granny starving or dying because she can no longer afford her CouponCare is actually doing her a favor.

  • RR Sucks

    “If I were conspiracy minded, I would suspect that Fox News had Dick Morris predict a Romney victory just to make Democrats overconfident.”

    Interesting. I tweeted yesterday in reply to someone screaming “libs are being oversampled” t!hat if so (unlikely), perhaps it was to lull them into a sense of complacency — hence not voting.

  • He’s worse than Bill Kristol? I’m asking seriously; I avoid the right-wing pundits like the plague, and really don’t know.

    • MsJoanne

      What makes him worse than any of the right wing nutjob pundits is his voice. Nails on a blackboard would be an improvement from the nasally whine that escapes his lips.

  • And this guy gets a SALARY?

  • Ya got to love that good old grass roots myth and the Tea Party.

  • jmConnor

    I don’t see how predicting an Obama win this early can help Obama actually win. Seems to me that we who support the President need to be kind of skeptical of the polls in order to keep less motivated supporters enthused about voting. Seems to me that polls showing an Obama victory actually help the Republicans by keeping their supporters fired up to defeat him. We who support the President have to be concerned about how many of his supporters will actually get to vote and how many of those votes will actually be counted for the President. That’s why we need an overwhelming turnout and supporters willing to stand in line for what may be hours in order to vote. We also need to be voting for Democrats down ticket too. With the possibility of a Romney loss, Rove and the Kochs will be spewing their venom toward those down ticket candidates more and more.

  • Dream on. Remember “Dewey Beats Truman”…. the MSM is so skewing the polling I have stopped paying attention. The same MSM that ignores the disgraceful lies and behavior of Obama after the murder of 4 Americans in Libya… oh wow, they just figured out it was a terrorist attack! golly gee! This woman, this Jewish, registered Democrat can not wait to vote this amatuer (to quote Bill Clinton) out of office. The self righteous, pandering, incompetent, crooked Dems from Chicago can’t leave fast enough…I just hope this country survives them.

    • sangsue

      Even Fox has Obama ahead. You were never a Democrat so stop lying, you gonif.

    • Bodine666

      —– the MSM is so skewing the polling I have stopped paying attention —–

      When did Fox go MSM?

      Like all repubs and cons, facts won’t get in the way of a good fantasy.

      You can take the BS you post over to Faux News and get plenty of sympathy. Here and everywhere else nobody is buying what you are selling.

      Just one question. Why do the cons shout from the rooftops when the polls show their guy ahead and then call the polls a lie when their guy is losing? It’s so absolutely disingenuous it’s pathetic.

      The claim about oversampling Democrats is the real punch line. How could that happen? The only folks at home during the day are the red-state cons, collecting welfare and food stamps, sitting in their rocking chairs sporting, “You’ll get my gun when you pry it from my cold dead hands” bumper stickers on their pickups. I live in Alabama. I see it every day.

  • You libtards are moronic.

  • Edward Simmons

    If you can’t run on your record or broken promises you must try to make people afraid of the opponent. What broken promises you ask? Health care debates on CSPAN, bills on internet for two weeks before a vote, open up federal lands for drilling, deficit in half his first term, no lobbyist’s in his administration, keep your health insurance, no death panels, close Gitmo, reach across aisle to Republicans, and I could go on and on. But that means nothing to the Left. How brainwashed and hate-filled they turn out to be. You would have a little bit of credibility if you would just own up to our President’s shortcomings and bold face untruths. Why does FOX have better ratings than almost all of the other networks combined? Because they allow two, sometimes three different viewpoints and they let the audience decide. I know so many Liberals that have never heard of Fast and Furious or Libya for that matter. They claim to hate FOX news, but admit to never watching it. Puppets and sheep. By the way, I once supported Obama. After my health insurance has skyrocketed and my buying power has dwindled, I started doing more research and paying more attention to facts. So keep doing what Communist Professor Saul Alinsky has taught radical community organizers. The truth means nothing, if your opponent does something right take credit for it, if you do something wrong blame the other guy and always attack the opposition and never let up. Do you really hate Capitalism so much? It has allowed our poorest of poor to live better than 90% of the planet. I’m still an Independent, which means I will look at all of the facts before I vote. It is shameful that so many do not.

  • Mitt is trying to keep things calm because he knows that American people are literate and politically conscious and will not be carried away by the speech of Obama, unlike the Iranian rabble who will be stirred by a speech. This was abundantly proved after the second debate. Although liberal media claimed that Obama won the debate in Denver, from the very next day onwards Romney began to lead in most of the states. That will be the fate of third debate also. American people choose a president not by assessing his performance in the debate, but his performance as president. What has Obama done to get reelected? Deep recession, massive unemployment and in foreign policy OBama’s impotence was exposed in the murder of ambassador, bloodbath in Syria, dominance of Putin and defiance of Ahmedijanad in sending Iranian troops into Syria and making a nuke. So Obama is a failure on every front and the debate, like the previous debate, will not alter the current leading of Romney.

  • InMyMindsAyn

    I’m confident of a Romney victory on November 6, but I do agree with you that Dick Morris a terrible political analyst. The wildly inaccurate predictions in the 2010 Senate race were the tipping point for me.

    • Sad trombone effect with Nelson laugh.

    Dick Morris is also suffering from same more sickness Mitt had.Romnesia 2 deg.
