    [oh Gahwwwd! This might cause the opposition to take heart. The Chicago Jesus be goin down in flames, at least on the money side. Obama was expecting to raise 6.4 million, his best yet, over the weekend, but he only came away with a paltry 4 million. Chump change for our Boy King.]

    "The Politico breathlessly reported 18 hours ago:

    President Obama’s five-fundraiser Sunday here will be one of the most lucrative days of his campaign, as he’s set to bring in more than $6.4 million.

    Then, after a series of dreary fundraisers, he barely pulled in two-thirds on the “lucrative” day.

    President Barack Obama zig-zagged across town Sunday, basking in a belated birthday serenade from campaign donors *— and collecting as much as $4 million for his re-election bid from hometown backers.

    So he was “expected” to pull in more than $6.4 million and slinked away with “as much as” $4 million.

    Mitt Romney would be mercilessly ridiculed for such a pathetic performance. Will the Obama lapdogs at Politico point this out? Don’t hold your breath.

    Speaking of pathetic, New York Times “reporter” Jodi Kantor tweeted Sunday about an Obama fundraiser being only half full, which was splashed on the Drudge Report. Yet now if you go to the direct link for the tweet, it no longer exists."

    I see the liberal leaning, hate-filled left is up to their same old modus operandi of substanceless attacks.



    REPORT: Obama fundraiser in Chicago. 'Admission only $51, but room is half full'...










    Paul Ryan is not Joe Biden.
    Romney Ryan sounds like Ronald Reagan.
    Liberals hate him.
    Democrat political operative and CNN contributor (naturally) James Carville was critical of Paul Ryan because he didn’t wear a tie during the VP announcement. You know the Democrats are worried if a news segment was devoted to what Ryan was wearing.
    He’s making liberals go insane. Russell Simmons, who is worth $340 million and owned a 49,000-square-foot home, tweeted: “Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan, two men who will destroy our people.”
    Romney/Ryan raised $3.5 million dollars in one day after the announcement. Money is an indicator of voter enthusiasm.
    More than 10,000 people attended a campaign rally In North Carolina. This wasn’t a union “rent-a-mob.”
    More than 10,000 people turned out to welcome Paul Ryan back to Wisconsin. Neither Romney nor Ryan wore a tie.
    A fundraiser in Chicago for Obama resulted in a half-full room.
    Obama and Co. immediately went on the attack. I think they’re surprised that Romney made such a bold move with a conservative.
    He knows how to debate.
    He’s not a wimp.
    He’ll stand up to the liberal media. Not a hard thing to do if a person decides to do it.
    He drove the Oscar Meyer Weinermobile and worked at McDonalds. This shows that he can relate to people who work for a living and that he had more private sector work experience than President Obama.
    He’s pro-life. He co-sponsored the Sanctity of Human Life Act and Right to Life Act.[1]
    A National Abortion Rights Action League (NARAL) “press release being circulated by Democrats and women’s groups” accuses the Catholic, pro-life Ryan with “extreme” anti-abortion views.
    He’s against homosexual marriage. “He has voted in favor of the Marriage protection act, twice in favor of an amendment to the Constitution to define marriage, and against the repeal of the military’s ‘don’t ask, don’t tell’ policy.”
    Libertarians should like Ryan for this statement: “I grew up reading Ayn Rand and it taught me quite a bit about who I am and what my value systems are, and what my beliefs are. It’s inspired me so much that it’s required reading in my office for all my interns and my staff.”
    Hopefully Ryan will help pull Romney more to the right.
    The Tea Party is enthusiastic. “This absolutely brings excitement to the ticket,” said Debbie Dooley, co-founder of the Atlanta Tea Party, who said she her reaction was “Wow!” when she heard the news. “This gives us something to vote for rather than voting against (incumbent Democratic U.S. President Barack) Obama.”

    Sorry do we know one another or are you perhaps confusing me with another beretta?

    Let's see:

    A community organizer attorney and a longtime senator attorney

    vs.

    A highly educated successful businessman former governor and an economist.


    Hmm, yeah. I'll take the second option. And it's not even close.

    Its even starker a choice than simply a community organzing attorney, which makes him sound kinda milque toasty and mild.

    Rabble rousing Communist demagogue cut from the same cloth as Lenin and Trotsky exhorting the Russian peasants to try harder as they're smashing down the doors of the Duma would be a more complete description.
