Romney’s Stake in Chinese Stocks
The GOP candidate invested in 10 Chinese companies recently—including ones that embezzled, partnered with Iran, and stole US trade secrets.
DOES THIS LOOK LIKE HE HAS AN INTEREST IN PROTECTING AMERICAN INTERESTS? OR HIS INTERESTS? This needs to go viral. ASAP

Mitt Romney: The Absentee Governor
By JM Ashby
The New York Times continues to tear into Mitt Romney today, this time focusing on the amount of time he spent away from his duties as governor.
BOSTON — When the ceiling collapsed in the Big Dig tunnel here, Gov. Mitt Romney was at his vacation home in New Hampshire. When the Bush administration warned that the nation was at high risk of a terror attack in December 2003, he was at his Utah retreat. And for much of the time the legislature was negotiating changes to his landmark health care bill, he was on the road.

There you go!
seems that people’s effort to bring focus on this Sensata issue is paying off. Thanks for ALL who have pushed this issue
It appears that way. We need to keep the pressure on until the polls close on 6 Nov because #Sensata is emblematic of all that is wrong with #RomneyRyan.

I know Ms Ashley Judd has been taking classes in Harvard. She has also stepped up her political activism promoting social-economic justice and very supportive of PBO.
I wonder if she ever has any intention of representing her home state some day??
She would be a person I would wholeheartedly support because when you listen to her she seems to be living her life in a manner that “does not close the door of opportunity behind her”. She is also very well spoken and seems to remember her roots and the challenges she faced.
I also heard her call into NPR’s Car Talk asking about her truck some time this year. The guys (Click and Clack) could not believe it was her at first and they sure had some fun with her call. Did anyone else hear her?
I missed that! And I usually do listen to the Car Talk guys over the weekend – they’re a hoot! I’ll have to try and find the podcast of that show online.

Yeah, I wouldn’t have survived this.
I think I would have struggled too, Theo.
On the one hand, he’s just so normal.On the other hand – he’s the President of the United States! I don’t know anybody who’s able to embody two polar opposite characteristics at the same time and make it look so natural. If there was a crisis in the minute after that picture was taken, I would totally expect him to stand up, put on his suit jacket and get in front of a flag and command the US armed forces into battle – or whatever. And then maybe take a slice of that pizza he brought with him, and get into Marine One to go meet with the Joint Chiefs of Staff. It would all seem perfectly perfect. He is exactly where he is supposed to be at this moment in history. He is exactly who he needs to be. It just gives me such a sense of confidence and security knowing he’s the President.
Oh yes, if this was me, I am pretty sure sleep wouldn’t find me for at least the next three day! Buzzzzzz….. What I love is everyone around him just getting it done, looking so normal and all…. That is really what it’s about…. Like when FLOTUS said she just wants people, especially young women and girls she is mentoring, to think of her as just Michelle. Here PBO is just being Barack! Pretty fine! Very cool! They are so HUMAN! Is that not why we love them so very much?

But but but candy Crowley said…
WILLIAMSBURG, Va., Oct 14 (Reuters) – U.S. President Barack Obama said on Sunday his debate preparation was “going great” and aides said the Democrat would be more aggressive in his next face off with Mitt Romney after their last encounter gave the Republican challenger a boost.
Since that first debate in Denver on Oct. 3, polls indicate Romney has erased Obama’s lead heading into the Nov. 6 election. Obama and Romney debate again on Tuesday at Hofstra University in Hempstead, New York. The third and final presidential debate will take place on Oct. 22 in Florida.
Obama is spending the days ahead of the second debate at a resort in Williamsburg, Virginia, a battleground state that both candidates want to win in order to be victorious on Nov. 6.
During a quick stop at a local campaign office, where he delivered pizzas to volunteers and called supporters by phone, Obama ha d a n enthusiastic ta ke on hi s practice sessions.
“It is going great,” Obama told reporters.

I know that is not great, but you recall the mason Dixon poll that had Robney up 7 overall, The President led Hispanics 46-44.
This is s 5 point improvement, with 5% undecided.
Amazingly, the president did lose ground amongst Hispanics after that first debate.
jovie141, I don’t think POTUS lost that much with the Hispanics. I refuse to believe that people were so impress by one debate that they ignore the last seven or eight months of Mitt Romney.
I know, but it’s still razor thin, underpolling the I-4 Hispanics which heavily favor the president.
the question to ask is whether or not the poll had spanish-language callers. In the last AZ poll that had Obama up by 2, was done with spanish-language callers. Since then, I’ve begun to wonder if like cell phone calls, if pollsters are missing Hispanic voters in cases where there is a language barrier.

Someone on the previous post wrote about how quiet the Obama campaign has been the past few days…..yes, I didn’t notice that, but that is an accurate observation. She also said she thought they must be planning something big in the next three weeks…..I’d say probably so.
We all need to remember that this is the team that brought President Obama from his 2004 Democratic convention keynote notice, through his Illinois State Legislature tenure, to the U.S. Senate….to the Presidency of the United States. Remember what a long shot he was in Feb 2007 when he announced? The media pundits had Hillary nominated and elected…….”it was in the bag.” nothing could change the stars…etc…..He started 70 points down in polls to Hillary, SLOWLY WORKED his way up to where he is now. Yes, these people are masters of timing. They’ve let the press hyperventilate over the first debate, turn themselves into pretzels over Romney and Ryan, and know exactly where they’re going and when.
I know they’re not omnipotent or omniscient, but they are smart and they WORK, and they ORGANIZE. Remember how SP made fun of being a “community organizer”….well, look who beat her and she has never recovered.
Also, they have internal polls, and I’m sure they look at all the external polls, but their internal polls are the ones which tell the story. I learned that four years ago. Also, when Axelrod was asked that silly question this morning about the President in the next debate, he really said nothing, and gave away nothing. Ax does that very well.
Some debate professor was on tonight talking about what each of the men has to do, blah, blah, blah……this townhall format is tailor made for the president. He is great at this…..it will be interesting to see. He can truly be his brilliant, savvy self in that format.
note to Bobfr and Tally – Fox news is trying to stick President Obama with Romney’s Sensata issue. The title of the article is — Obama owns shares of Sensata Personally Benefits from Outsourcing.
I swallowed the bile and registered at Fox just to push back but those assholes deleted my comment anyway.
I lift my hat to you for going to that place. I just do not let my remove go on that channel. I literally skip over it! Not giving them a click at all.
UT and others this morning stated that MTP was awesome. I started to watch but because of my disgust with David Gregory, I just could not continue. I will wait on the videos to enjoy those segments.
I have DVR’d it, and when I watched it, I only listened the the governor and the mayor.I fast forwarded the rest:-)
They’re getting nowhere with that nonsense, nospin. And, you can be assured that if you post anything that they don’t agree, it will be deleted immediately. Ed Henry tried to diss me on Twitter and in two tweets he knew he was no match and blocked me
Ed Henry has also blocked me on Twitter. Ditto Jake Tapper.
A badge of honor, Hopefruit, **** the shills.
Indeed x 2!
It seem to me that Henry and Japper, the so call journalists can’t stand to hear the truth. They can’t stand for someone to hit back at their lies.
These people talk a lot of bunk to politicians, but can’t take push back. I have been blocked by Jim Martin at Politico and Nia Maliki Henderson. Go figure.
It didn’t help that I had my Obama/Biden logo in the post. lolol But I wasn’t rude or anything. I simply listed the facts that Romney owns 51% gets 450,000 per week and is scheduled to ship the jobs on Nov 5 the day before the elections. I also said it wasn’t new, he did the same with KB toys and got 900% profits and Ampad was also destroyed. lolol then I provided the links to the stories. so . . . I guess I wasn’t really surprised that they deleted my post but still .. ..
I wouldn’t know what it took for me to register at that place.
So they delete opposing comments, huh? So much for freedom of speech. Only for them, I guess.

There is a reason why we blame Florida for Bush being President. Smdh.
If Seniors in Florida supports a guy who want to get rid of Medicare, this is about something more then Medicare, it’s about race.
Those are the same seniors in Florida who voted in a governor who had to pay $1 billion on fines or Medicare fraud. Same seniors who had tea bags on their heads demanding an end to spending (even though they’re on Medicare and Social Security), and end to taxes (even though their taxes had just been lowered by President Obama), and instructed the government to keep its hands off their (government run) Medicare program. Doesn’t surprise me they’re not planning to vote against their own best interests – and cheat their kids and grandkids out of a decent and secure future.
Don’t think so, they voted in their idiot governor so it seems to me that it is trending R.
WTF??? Did hell just freeze over?

Sweetie, I was a-workin’, and it was a busy busy day, had no iPad with me, out of juju, so only had iphone, and iPhone screen very tiny and hard to read compared to iPad! Anyway, I was only in for fleeting moments, missed a lot!
Yeah, I know now that you were working. Problem is you have me trained to see you popping in and out so I wondered when it dawned on me that no popping had gone on today. All is well.

Sorry for the loss of your job after 23 years! There’s no doubt that Romney will do to the country’s workers what he’s done to you and other Sensata employees. So coldblooded.

So I bowed out of my GOTV phonebank early, because my right shoulder is absolutely killing me.
Lots of calls made, few contacts. But that was to be expected, as we were calling people who aren’t consistent voters. Lots of wrong numbers, which again is to be expected, since they may have moved and not re-registered. This is the campaign honing its lists to get the most bang for the buck, and this was our first GOTV phonebank.
Ah LL, sorry to hear your shoulder is giving pain, not what you need on a phonebanking day. Sounded like a frustrating experience, but as you said, this is about the campaign honing its list. Endless admiration, keep up the wonderful work – and get better soon!
Ice pack, friend, and get started on those gimlets!!!
Take care and thank you for all your efforts, today.
Oh god, no gimlets tonight. Had one too many Manhattans last night. Egg flower soup is on its way to Casa de LL.
Dr’s orders! I like your script!
Good job going down and doing that…even if you didn’t reach lots of folks….as you say, they are honing the lists. You might want to make some calls using Dashboard…you can do it from home:) Sorry to here about your shoulder. Sucks getting older:)
Oh, I’m a data guy. Got to try out my new laptop entering data. Quite nice. But they had LOTS of people calling and doing data, so i left them in good hands.
I went down yesterday and multitasked …data entry and some calls….people popped in all the while I was there….
I think I might start going to an OFA office, rather than phonebanks in people’s homes. The closest one to me is on Crenshaw.

Europeans dismiss Romney and back Obama in US election
// f President Barack Obama was standing for re-election in Europe rather than the United States he would romp to an easy victory over his Republican rival Mitt Romney, according to the results of a poll published today.
The German Marshall Fund think-tank’s annual Transatlantic Trends survey found that 82 per cent of European had a positive opinion of Obama, while less than a quarter had a favourable view of Romney. Asked directly who they would vote for if they could take part in the US elections, 75 per cent of European Union residents went for Obama and only 8 per cent for his opponent.
Romney’s rating was hit by the fact that he is unknown to many Europeans. Asked about the Republican candidate, 38 per cent either said they did not know or refused to answer. The poll was carried out in June, before a trip to Europe during which he criticised London’s preparations for the Olympic Games. //
