Less than two weeks ahead of Election Day, only one thing seems clear amongst the constant noise about Big Bird, a nuclear Iran, and bayonets and horses: the presidency will hinge on how Ohio votes.Ohioans seem to be taking their task seriously: 7.
Susie Madrak started blogging in 2001, just after Sept. 11, back when the country was hurtling head-first into war and the blogosphere was a mysterious frontier on the far edges of the Internet.“It was infuriating,” Madrak recalled of the political moment that spurred her to start throwing her own commentary online.
Don’t mess with us girls.And if you don’t already know that, all you had to do was turn on the tube—or the computer—when moderators Candy Crowley or Martha Raddatz took to the debate stages to tame the roaring male lions fighting to rule the kingdom.
The Mitt Romney who has been selling himself to America in the three presidential debates seems like a reasonable, common-sense fellow.On foreign policy, as we saw Monday night in Boca Raton, Romney essentially agrees with President Obama on Afghanistan, Syria, and Libya.
Supporters attending Obama rallies this election season have been tapping their toes to songs like Al Green’s “Let’s Stay Together” and Aretha Franklin’s cover of “The Weight” as the president sashays his way across stages to podiums across the country.
How snarky was President Obama in his final debate with Mitt Romney? He was scornful enough that, during the midst of the matchup, Hillaryland insiders were circulating amongst themselves a twit pic featuring that kick-ass photo of Hillary in her shades, captioned by Obama’s infamous put-down from one of their ’08 debates: “You’re likable enough, Hillary.
How do they feel about horses and bayonets? The third-party presidential candidate debate was Tuesday night in Chicago, with Libertarian Party nominee Gary Johnson, Green Party nominee Jill Stein, Constitution Party nominee Virgil Goode, and Justice Party nominee Rocky Anderson participating.
Todd Akin and Joe Walsh, here’s a third member for your posse. Indiana Republican Senate candidate Richard Mourdock said Tuesday that pregnancy resulting from rape can be “something that God intended to happen.” The comments came during a debate.
Is a performance a comeback if it doesn’t yield results? A new Reuters/Ipsos poll shows that President Obama handily won Monday’s foreign policy debate, with 47 percent of registered voters saying that he beat Mitt Romney, and just 31 percent said the Republican challenger had the better night.
Just wait till there’s a pill for this. Mental health experts say devout supporters of a particular political candidate can experience the same feelings of loss and even depression as dedicated sports fans when their team does poorly.
Bob Schieffer never says never, but if Monday night's presidential debate was the last one he ever moderates, he’ll survive. He’s also not at all torn up about the fact that he accidentally called Osama bin Laden “Obama bin Laden.
Obama campaign manager Jim Messina attempted to squash rumors that the president's reelection team is preparing to shift resources from places like North Carolina to more vulnerable states. "We are tied or ahead in every battleground state, and we're not leaving any state where we're tied or ahead," Messina told reporters Tuesday.
Debate viewers may have noticed that the topic of discussion Monday night shifted several times from the designated theme of foreign policy to more domestic issues, and most of them probably didn't care. That’s because Americans aren’t particularly interested in foreign policy.
You’d think a shirtless Paul Ryan riding a horse and wielding a bayonet would just make sense. Apparently dreams of such a super-soldier are just not meant to be. The vice presidential candidate said that he “just doesn’t understand” Obama’s comparison of American battleships with bayonets.
Mr. President, why so angry? What’s up with that gloomy edge and the sour mood?Aside from all the bewildering back-and-forth about Libya, Iran, apology tours, and auto bailouts, by far the most important aspect of the third and final presidential debate involved its atmospherics—which candidate came across as more calming and confident, more plausible and reassuring as commander-in-chief? Which of the contenders, in other words, emerged from their final confrontation looking like a leader, frontrunner, and ultimate winner?In that regard Barack Obama helped himself with his fluent command of foreign affairs and passionate engagement with the disparate subjects under discussion.
