Suddenly, Romney Becomes the Best Bet

About a week ago  I posted a column here entitled “Romney Isn’t There Yet,” in which I contended that as things then stood, GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney seemed unlikely to win more than 248 of the 270 electoral votes required to take the presidency away from Barack Obama in the November 6 election. What…

Romney Isn’t There Yet

I wish I could be as optimistic as Dick Morris, the former Clinton aide turned GOP pundit. Morris believes that Mitt Romney has a strong chance to win the electoral votes of Pennsylvania, Michigan, Wisconsin and Minnesota, all of which voted decisively for President Obama in 2008. By my reckoning, if Romney can win either…

The Media Should be Ashamed

The presidential debate was quite one sided due to the fact that Mitt Romney was able to point out so many inconsistencies and broken promises by the President.  What was truly fascinating was how unprepared Mr. Obama was in terms of dealing with these questions.  This is further evidence that the mainstream media has never…

 The Democrats would like you to believe that it’s all over, that the trend is in President Obama’s favor and that if the election were held today he would win re-election against Mitt Romney, and that come Election Day he will win by an even bigger margin than he would today.
