#OccupyResoluteDesk is so, so thoroughly spent. Maybe this remark was a tell about why he hung Woods and Doherty out to dry?

    […] Mitt Romney will probably be slammed for using Barack Obama’s own word so effectively (video here), but what is really telling in the ad is the difference in body language between the two […]

    Yours is the only site I will visit the next few days. I have that sick feeling in my stomach, magnified from 4 years ago. I believe the polls to be wrong in almost all aspects, although my gut tells me Romney will win. I am hopeful. Michigan is a hot bed for politics, and yet this year it is too hard to gauge.

    There are very few signs to be found on either side, even in the Dem stronghold of Detroit. Nobody is talking. Romney supporters don’t put signs up because we are “racist”. Obama supporters do not put them up because they are too embarrassed. Obama supporters will either stay home in huge mass, or vote for him in the privacy of the voting booth. I do not believe people are being honest with the pollsters, or they are being honest, and Obama has far more support than he should in this climate. My FB friends are very quiet. Four years ago their support on my wall for Obama was rampant.

    I feel with all the great strides our side has managed in the time since Obama’s election, and the blow out election of 2010 we are in good shape. I shall pray heavily the next few days. Good luck to all of us…

    I hear ya. I am starting to get anxious. In 2008 my Facebook was bombarded with Obama, not this time. I really worry that people will vote in the privacy of the booth for Obama.

    The only people I have not been able to convince to vote Romney/Ryan are my parents. They are determined that *I* get Medicare and Social Security when I reach 65 (A little more than twenty years hence) My mother also points out to me all the time that birth control pills are used to regulate a woman as well, so they should be covered by insurance. I can’t get them to watch Fox, read the Blaze, Breitbart, nothing. I am basically resigned that my vote and my wifes vote will cancel out theirs.

    Lucky I am not in a swing state, so it doesn’t hurt as much.

    I am with you, and very saddened today. My husband and I raised our children conservatively. My daughter is a teacher, a great one, but the union took her from us. We shall not speak until Wed. because she and her husband are Obama supporters all the way. Even after her father lost his job of 36 years from company closure. I have two lovely grandchildren and it breaks my heart I cannot get through to them.

    They are also very involved in their christian church and pro life…How do you get around that one and vote for the most pro abortion president ever? The union vote is more important to her than her vote of faith..

    Here’s the difference between Romney and Obama.
    Romney loves America and wants to see it grow stronger…
    Obama hates America and wants to weaken it…mission accomplished…

    My brother’s a teacher; same thing. He’d be cheering IBEW turning away the nonunion relief workers and supplies.

    We need to go after the teacher’s unions and NEA the way we went after the mob in the Teamsters. They’re just as criminally corrupt.
