TPM Election Central | Talking Points Memo | Poll: Obama Grabs The Lead In Florida
You and others like you complain when people on the right ASSUME and read into polls... and you then go and post polls which mean jack squat as well?
C'mon.... just remember that these polls are inherently inaccurate (no matter who it shows 'leading') and that you can find a poll to show any result...
There's only 1 poll that counts.. and until then... none of these little 'news getters' really knows anything at all... they really don't show a damn thing
can you offer proof of this statement please? Was Obama in on the negotiations of the bill? I read the bill yesterday and saw no mention of earmarks AT ALL much less for ACORN.
is this more lying by the right? it looks that way
If half the new enrollments show up in fl it will be Obama in a landslide...
I haven't done that.
IMO, polls are valid when they show a trend over time.
Your right, polls don't mean anything. I mean who knows, Obama might win Mississippi or maybe Kentucky.
Polls don't mean everything, but they DO mean something. Discarding them is foolish and neither campaign are stupid enough to ignore polls.
McCain is running around like a chicken with his head cut off.
I expect Palin to be dumped for Romney as soon as she is recommended for indictment.
I have the same question, I read the bill and didnt see this at all but I know last week this was the "rumor" that was going on but never backed up by a respectable source.
There are indeed earmarks that were associated with the bill.. 2322 of them as a matter of fact... including millions set aside for one of Obama's favorites, ACORN... 6.6 BILLION in earmarks
The number of earmarks is listed in numerous articles on the bill from non-blog sources... including AP...
I have no need to lie... you DEMs do plenty of that to saturate this board
Show me something that says there was an earmark in the bill for Acorn, I dont believe the basis behind Acorn is bad but I have been looking for a list of the earmarks and cant find anything but the numbers you posted and they do not mention Acorn. I want specifics.
