Obama Administration: Hyperincompetence; Camille Paglia: Closeted Conservative?; Paper Endorses Romney: First Time It Endorsed A Republican in 40 years; Romney Up 20 Points Among Independents; Romney Helping Hurricane Victims

Okay Obama, now it's time for you to show you can stop the rise of the ocean. Put up or shut up. Tweet by GrottaHouse

  • In my post yesterday ("Making the Case For Romney"), I endorsed Romney. With the more recent revelations regarding Benghazi, I believe this scandal shows "hyperincompetence" on the part of the Obama administration.
  • But how bad are things when one of the most dedicated and famous feminist in the nation agrees with you?
  • Last week, Camille Paglia, came out against Obama (she did not endorse Romney). And she was not kind with her criticism. She admitted voting for Obama in 2008. She admitted she was very excited about Obama. She said, "I thought his election would promote racial healing in the country. I consider him one of the most racially divisive and polarizing figures ever. I think it will take years to undo the damage he's done." In addition,  one might think a liberal like Paglia would like what ObamaCare offers. It's not the case. She describes Obamacare as "a Stalinist intrusion into American culture...You don't want government agencies being empowered to intrude into people's lives like this." Me thinks Camille might be a closet conservative.
  • Obama's failed policies are one thing. But it appears many libs like Paglia are disappointed in the countless promises broken by Obama from closing Gitmo to racial healing to government transparency (as the lack of  now evidenced by the Benghazi scandal) to the economy (promising if the stimulus package was passed unemployment would now be under 6%) to stopping the rise of the oceans (apparent today on the East Coast).
  • Even the Des Moines Register got the message. It endorsed Romney this weekend. The last Republican the paper endorsed was Nixon in 1972.

  • While many Americans are focused on the election and now the Benghazi scandal (although the Pressititutes media's coverage of this scandal is conspicuous by its absence. Only Fox News is doing commendable coverage), the other outrage is what is happening with the Ft. Hood case. Did you know the Obama administration still refers to the Ft. Hood shooting as a case of "workplace violence?" They proclaim this absurdity even as the evidence clearly shows Nidal Hasan himself defended suicide bombers. He also said Muslim service members would be justified in killing U.S. troops. Even more disturbing, this creep communicated with Anwar al-Awlaki according to the FBI. Awlaki, at the time, was one of the world's most wanted terrorist (thanks be to Allah, we smoked his sorry ass by a hellfire missile in September 2011). And this posture by our government should surprise now one considering Gen. George Casey, the Army's Chief of Staff at the time, actually said: "As horrific as this tragedy was, if our diversity becomes a casualty, I think that's worse." Hard to believe a jerk like this rose so high through the Army's ranks. NY Post
  • Don't expect the economy to recover much in the coming months. This headline in USA TODAY spells it out: "Business Spending Tightens As Fiscal Cliff Nears." (you can review what the fiscal cliff holds for us in my previous post).
  • In most national polls, Romney is leading Obama. As reported last week, it appears the gender gap is now closed (a shift of 16-20 percentage points to Romney in just two months). Among men, Romney is whooping the president 65-32% {ABC/WaPo}. Obama is still getting big numbers from Blacks and Latinos. But here's what has to be driving the Obama campaign a tad nuts. Among Independents, Romney is leading Obama 58-38% (ABC/WaPo). That's friggin huge.

  • During Madonna's concert in New Orleans on Saturday, she declared, "I don't care who you vote for as long as you vote for Obama." She was booed. Folks, that's New Orleans.
  • In my post yesterday, I reported on the many good deeds by Romney and his family. With Sandy approaching, the Romney campaign is donating their bus to be used to help hurricane victims. They will use the bus to transport donations to those in need. Romney campaign offices will also be collecting storm relief supplies.
  • To all those folks on the East Coast who will be battling Hurricane Sandy (that includes moi): Be prepared and good luck. God bless.
