"In a last-minute change of plans, Mitt Romney will head to visit storm-affected areas in New Orleans today, skipping a previously scheduled joint rally with running mate Paul Ryan in the battleground state of Virginia this afternoon."
A Romney aide told ABC News that Romney will “join Gov. Jindal and will meet with first responders, thank them for their work and see areas impacted by the storm in LaFitte, La.”"
Paul Ryan at the Republican National Convention went on the attack and offered a scathing critique of the of Obama regime and their policies. Lines such as the following were heard during his speech: "With all their attack ads, the president is just throwing away money - and he's pretty experienced at that."
This of course is pointing out the massive deficits that Obama has continued to accumalate over the course of his time in office. He continues with more punches:
"College graduates should not have to live out their twenties in their childhood bedrooms, staring up at fading Obama posters and wondering when they can move out and get going with life,"
This line will be sure to hit home against Obama and his campaign team. This of course is referring to the youth that came out in droves last time in support of Obama. Unfortunately much of that youth has been horribly let down by broken promises. Hence why they are still in their parents basements.
Overall it was a great speech, full of not only jabs and punches, but also some very meaningful and relevant facts and solutions.

"If the following "heatmap" of readership political bent by state from Amazon is any indication of the votership inclination in the coming election, then Mitt Romney, more natural disasters notwithstanding, has nothing to worry about. Then again in the world of oxymorons, there are few quite as potent as "America Reads" (with the exception of the occasional money-losing Kindle for the aspirationally cool reader)."
"Romney's selection of Paul Ryan as his veep clarifies the policy debate (forcing typically middle-of-the-road voters to become more polarized to the size of government) into the November election and materially changes the odds of the fiscal cliff's resolution. As Morgan Stanley's Vince Reinhart notes, "by tying one side to an explicit plan for fiscal consolidation, the Ryan selection makes it much more likely that the campaign will focus on the appropriate role of the government. That is, the debate will be about the right level of federal expenditure relative to national income, the progressivity of the tax system, and the extent to which family incomes are protected on the downside by Washington, DC." Although theoretically the Ryan pick raises the chance of a benign, before-the-election resolution to the fiscal cliff 'issue', it also worsens the likely outcome if the legislative stand-off continues into 2013 - which the odds suggest is the case."
"In his inaugural address, Obama promised “not only to create new jobs, but to lay a new foundation for growth.” He promised to “build the roads and bridges, the electric grids, and digital lines that feed our commerce and bind us together.” He promised to “restore science to its rightful place and wield technology’s wonders to raise health care’s quality and lower its cost.” And he promised to “transform our schools and colleges and universities to meet the demands of a new age.” Unfortunately the president’s scorecard on every single one of those bold pledges is pitiful."
Really? What is he so scared of? Perhaps one too many skeletons in the closet? This is from the "White House Dossier"; "The White House is doing something with its local TV interviews that it could not easily get away with in encounters with the White House press corps, which President Obama has been studiously ignoring: choosing the topic about which President Obama and the reporter will talk."
Kira Davis of the YouTube channel "kiradavis422" sends an open letter to Toure of MSNBC. This is in direct response to his most recent "Niggerization" race baiting comments about Mitt Romney. She gives a very emotional and candid response. View the video above for more.
In Appleton Wisconsin a 83 year old protester was caught in the act spitting on a Romney supporter. No matter what side you take, this was inappropriate. In my opinion this is one of the ultimate insults. The protester has been identified as Mary Hoglund.
The results from the most recent Gallup 2012 elections poll have been released. The question was asked in this manner: "Suppose the presidential election were held today. If Barack Obama were the Democratic Party's candidate and Mitt Romney were the Republican Party's candidate, who would you vote for Barack Obama, the Democrat or Mitt Romney, the Republican?"
And the results of this question?
Very tight but Romney seems to be catching up and pulling slightly ahead.
The Romney-Ryan campaign is gearing up for their next attack piece. The target? Obama and Medicare. This was heard today by Ryan:
"The president is talking about Medicare today. We want this debate. We need this debate and we will win this debate."
Also Fox News gave their perspective on the Republican attack plan:
"Right now, the effort is to turn around the Democratic attacks on Ryan's Medicare program by pointing to Obama's health law, which is widely considered unaffordable, and pointing out that it was Obama who "ended Medicare as we know it" by diverting more than $700 billion from the popular entitlement program to pay for a new, expensive health-insurance entitlement."
Regardless of how all this turns out, we now that people are getting sick and tired of the massive unlimited debt creation. Especially since essentially nothing is trickling down to the man on the street.
I think the Obama campaign needs to keep Biden under lock and key. Between the "They're Going To Put Y'all Back In Chains" comment and his other recent mishaps it is not going well for Joe.
Things unfortunately aren't getting any better for the Vice President. Just today he had another major embarrassing moment. This one? He forgot what decade he was living in. This is the quote today that is causing so much grief for him today:
"Folks, where's it written we cannot lead the world in the 20th century in making automobiles?"
Ouch, the message was good Joe, but unfortunately you got the wrong century. It's OK I occasionally forget what galaxy I'm living in as well. /end sarcasm.
In a recent campaign in Ohio Romney was in full attack mode and was heard saying such things as:
"Mr. President, take your campaign of division and anger and hate back to Chicago".
This was of course referring to the recent comment that Biden made “put y’all back in chains." that has not gone over very well for the Obama campaign.
Romney didn't stop there although, he continued his attack and followed up with this:
"This is an election in which we should be talking about the path ahead, but you don't hear any answers coming from President Obama’s re-election campaign. That’s because he's intellectually exhausted, out of ideas, and out of energy. And so his campaign has resorted to diversions and distractions, to demagoguing and defaming others. This is an old game in politics; what’s different this year is that the president is taking things to a new low."
No matter what side you have decided to take, one thing we can all agree on is that this is going to be a interesting and heated campaign.
