Chron: A defaced painting of President Barack Obama, across the street from The Breakfast Klub restaurant in midtown, will be redone with a new design, said the original artist, Reginald C. Adams.

…. The original mural, done during the presidential election campaign in 2008, was damaged sometime early Monday by vandals who threw red paint on the larger-than-life image across the street from the popular restaurant at Travis and Alabama.

…. Marcus Davis, the restaurant owner, said he discovered the damage when he got to work about 7 a.m. Monday.

“When this happened it was a sad occasion, and yet there was some excitement there in terms of the opportunity it presents,” Davis said. “Just as President Obama has not given up and has turned a negative into a positive, that’s the example I will follow.”

    • October 19, 2012 at 9:47 am

      So true! Can we on the Left calm the hell down if our guy doesn’t perform up to par in one debate? Do we have to crucify him if he’s not on point all the time? Matthews, Schultz and Sullivan went way overboard after the first debate. I look at them cross-eyed now and will do so until November 6th.

      I still think the Dem reaction isn’t wrong – it was a true reaction to how the debate “landed” in everyone’s television screens in their homes. Dems are definitely not delusional like the GOP on the right in this cartoon — we are realistic and don’t make up lies and conspiracy theories and blame others. Like Axelrod said, POTUS is his own worst critic and in various ways he himself has admitted he had an off night. The instant polls captured what people saw and were correct. The left drama queens on cable didn’t affect the swing states. The changes in the polls were due to undecided voters who went for optics, Gallup changing to likely voter screens and natural poll tightening. Swing state polls had some minor slippage but the Obama campaign said that was going to happen regardless due to natural tightening where people are making up their minds and there is fewer undecided voters. Instead of 8% undecided there is now about 5%.

      Truth be told, I think we were all a bit worried that POTUS didn’t hit back at Romney’s lies. Whether or not the media does it, in a debate that is a critical aspect for each of the debaters no matter the issue and no matter who the candidate. We didn’t want this to be the same result that John Kerry had where total shit was thrown at him in the last weeks of the campaign and it wasn’t sufficiently challenged by him and his campaign.

      It’s never gonna be in the DNA of the Dems to lie, obfuscate and conspiracy theory away a problem like the GOP does, no matter what. So while the cartoon is 100% accurate imho I don’t have a problem with the Dem true reaction portrayed.

        October 19, 2012 at 10:34 am

        Nope, the left lacks the backbones to engage in political fist fights and the mental strength to take the ensuing results in their stride. The poll drop, if it was ever proven to have happened at all, can be squarely blamed on the freak-out left. Story of their life.

    Early voting surge suggests Democratic push pays off in Iowa

    More than two million Americans have already cast ballots for president less than three weeks before Election Day with a substantial number coming in the battleground state of Iowa.

    The state, which holds six key electoral votes, is on pace to exceed the 1.5 million votes cast early in in 2008 — a trend that is not lost on either political party.

    While both parties are investing resources in early voting, Democrats’ push to turn out voters — and in particular young voters in Iowa — could be paying off.

    Early numbers, which are updated daily, show that almost 20% more registered Democrats than registered Republicans have voted so far.

    Of the 463,219 early voting ballots requested in the state as of Thursday morning, 45% came from registered Democrats compared to 30% of registered Republicans.

    Well up and at ‘em all you O’s!!!! It’s another great getting up day in TOD town doncha know!!!! Well, PBO’s rally in Fairfax today slipped by me. My #2 texted me Wednesday that she was going to see PBO on Friday. Since I hadn’t heard about it, I thought she’d been hoodwinked. Well, about an hour ago, she texted a picture of her standing in line to see him. How she managed to get tickets is a mystery. She went to DC for her alma mater, Howard Univerisity’s homecoming. I should have known she’d find a way. This is the kid who always managed to get to the dressing rooms, or backstage at concert events. From the pic she sent, it looks like a long line,

    My political take today is I’m glad the final debate will be on Monday. The good news about that is we won’t have to suffer through a week of the pre-debate hoopla from the pundits. The bad news about that is we will have to suffer through a week of the post debate hoopla from the pundits.

    • October 19, 2012 at 9:32 am

      Cookemon–I totally agree that I want these debates to be over, as I’m sure the president does. They’re like gladiator contests and I just don’t have the stomach for them. If people don’t know by now who to vote for, they are beyond saving. I’ve completely run out of patience with them, I don’t need to see our president be put through another hoop.

        You’re right. Although he did include the very questionable, Republican PA poll showing Willard up by +4 in PA. I think his model still underestimates PBO’s chances. But it’s moving in the right direction, and our President’s ground game is superb and unaccounted for by most of these polling data.

    On the Daily Show his answer to “do you think you have a stronger affirmative case for Barack Obama or a stronger negative case against Romney” (paraphrased)? I loved his answer “Both” and “when you think about it they’re two sides of the same coin”. Brilliant, accurate and makes people feel better about his negative ads about Romney. I hate it when candidates run negative ads and then distance themselves from them when asked in an interview or go into doublespeack. POTUS totally backs up in this interview the negatives about Romney that he has shown in his ads.

    * A victory that could resonate in the battlegrounds: Reuters reports that the World Trade Organization sided with the Obama administration in barring China from imposing duties on U.S. steel exports manufactured in Pennsylvania and Ohio. This could blunt Romney’s charges that Obama has been soft on China, which is key to Romney’s final pitch to hard hit battleground state residents.

    FLOTUS was amazing on Live with Kelly and Michael. Team Obama uses these media appearances wisely. She made sure to emphasize early voting in person, absentee voting, and http://www.gottavote.org

    She explained how easy voting/voting info is with their gottavote website. She also got into the fun stuff. She talked about how Pres. Obama and VP Biden coach Sasha’s and Maisy Biden’s (his granddaughter) basketball team and how they’re always at the games with her and Jill Biden and they always embarrass them because POTUS and VP Biden are always whooping it up, cheering, screaming Go Sasha and Maisy!!! and that Pres. Obama sometimes trash talks the referees but the refs are cool with it, because he’s always there with VP Biden most weekends to help coach and support all the girls on the team. She said sometimes the refs turn around, point and say, Mr. President; sit down and everyone gets a good chuckle.

        Yea this is great because they rank #10 in online subscriptions. WSJ and NYT are #1 and #2. It’s a really detailed review – doesn’t go easy on either candidate and could be seen as too critical of POTUS but that’s probably good for a swing/undecided voter in Colorado – that they are critical but do clearly state his accomplishments as well as outlining Romney’s total BS and GOP obstruction.
