The New Yorker front page

Original post made by Gary, Downtown North, on Oct 8, 2012

This is one of the hardest hitting front covers I have in seen in years. For a liberal mag like the New Yorker to do this just shows how bad Obama did last week. Desperation is in order for the left. This debate may go down as one of the most historically significant debate events in presdidental history.

Honor goes to Romeny (and Eastwood)!

This magazine cover was much more "hard hitting" (of course, take into account that anything that blasts Obama will find favor with "Gary"):

Web Link

And the above cover is based on facts--Romney is to wimpy to stand up for his beliefs--he flip-flops based on how his right wing handlers want him to!!!

Here is another "hard-hitting" one:

the 538 blog, the most thorough of composite poll data: Web Link

Obama leads 308 to 230. Romney has a 22% chance of winning, Obama has a 76% chance of winning.

Realclearpolitics, the other main poll agitator: Web Link

251 Obama
181 Romney

106 toss up -- Obama leads Romney in most of the toss up states, yet Romney must win almost ALL of them to even get close to 270

Why?

Web Link

Romney = Bush/Cheney

Romney can't elucidate how he differs from Bush, because he isn't different from Bush -- same policies, same Bush team, same outlook.

Gary is very happy, thank you!

The two New Yorker covers you provided only emphasize the point that an essentially anti-Romeny mag, like the New Yorker, has had it with the empty suit of Obama. Devastating for Obama.

Keep 'em coming!

Oh, btw, gasoline is at $5 in this state. The middle class does not like that. Maybe they will grow a brain and vote against the construct that the leftists have built for them.

This is so much fun!

"Gary is very happy, thank you!"
and
"This is so much fun!"

I am the only disturbed by the fact that people of a certain political persuasion derive pleasure from the suffering of others. How is it that certain people do not care about our country and have become slaves to a certain ideology, at the expense of the country as a whole.
Those that are findingjoy in this should remember that the republicans pledged from day one that their goal was to prevent a second term for Obama, NO MATTER WHAT THE COST. Too bad Romney does not acknowledge that when he is attacking Obama for a lack of progress.
Very sad statement indeed about certain people.

The previous high was in June 2008. Sounds like a Bush problem.

It is very joyful to understand that Americans can, possbily, be liberated from the empty leadership of Obama.

It is also a lot of fun for me to watch the disintegraion of the facade that brought us this empty suit. I have been very consistent about the empty suit model, for years.

The suffering of the American people will be far less, if Romney is elected. Imagine unleshing the American energy sector, for example.

At least we can celebrate the new joy that can come our way!

Gary's true opinion of Americans:

"The middle class does not like that. Maybe they will grow a brain"

Middle Class Americans need to grow a brain?

Eastwoods "empty chair " routine was a preview of the debate.

Obama was devastated and his campaign is in panic.

Romney delivered another knock out punch on foreign policy today.

" Hope is not a strategy"


This morning, a new Battleground Poll has Mitt Romney massacring Obama among indies by a whopping 16 points, 51-35.

Of course, if they voted for Obama. Dah! Why would they want to continue to be destroyed by him and his?

Americans can do so much better than Obama!

The high gas prices in the past, under Bush, were part of a soaring economy. Now, have we soaring gas prices in an anemic economy. The lowest 47% of our economy, in 2008, could still get by, even if they did not pay any federal income taxes; ask them how they feel now.

Let's get real here!

Voting for Romney is a vote for hope and change.

That User Name is already is a registered user.

Gary tells us Bush's high gas prices were due to a soaring economy in....

... wait for it ...

In June, 2008.

Anyone here remember June, 2008? Obviously, Gary doesn't. Gary's great idea at the time, John McCain, and his team called it a "mental recession" and called Americans a bunch of whiners.

gas prices (click the 8 year chart) Web Link

In June 2008, the Bush Great Recession was already spiraling down, with jobs losses of 200,000 jobs lost: Web Link

Sharon also posts gibberish about Romney winning swing states, without evidence or links.

Romney is not.

Because Romney = Bush/Cheney. Romney still can't tell us which of his policies differ from Bush/Cheney.

Because they do not.
