Update: More poll numbers coming in with Mittmentum numbers (and it is now less than 30 days until E-Day). Guess who has the numbers? Romney up 2 in new national poll from … Daily Kos? Yup, the DailyKooks are the source of the latest Mittment8m numbers.
DailyKooks are not alone. As we detail below and here, Mittmentum is everywhere: Romney takes lead in Rasmussen swing-state tracking poll, 49/46; Plus, ARG puts Romney up 1 in Ohio – with a D+9 sample. As Stewie would say, “Say whaaaat?”
This is a no whine zone. This is a gloat zone as well. Let’s gloat.
Remember Andrew Sullivan? He’s that snake that lives in the Slytherin bathrooms. Sullivan is a reptile who fell to his knees in 2008 to worship Barack Obama in the silliest schoolgirl crush since Olive Oyl took a liking for lumbering Popeye.
Now Sullivan, today’s headline at Drudge, is worried sick for his lovey-poo:
“Did Obama Just Throw The Entire Election Away?
The Pew poll is devastating, just devastating. Before the debate, Obama had a 51 – 43 lead; now, Romney has a 49 – 45 lead. That’s a simply unprecedented reversal for a candidate in October. Before Obama had leads on every policy issue and personal characteristic; now Romney leads in almost all of them. Obama’s performance gave Romney a 12 point swing! I repeat: a 12 point swing.
Romney’s favorables are above Obama’s now. Yes, you read that right. Romney’s favorables are higher than Obama’s right now. That gender gap that was Obama’s firewall? Over in one night [snip]
Seriously: has that kind of swing ever happened this late in a campaign? Has any candidate lost 18 points among women voters in one night ever? And we are told that when Obama left the stage that night, he was feeling good. That’s terrifying. On every single issue, Obama has instantly plummeted into near-oblivion.“
That poor reptile (we mean Sullivan). It’s sad when reality takes a bite out of your fat ass. Sullivan is in tears. We here at Big Pink are in tears too – tears of joy!. On Denver Debate Disaster Night we wrote what we repeated the day after: “Last night the country saw the Obama we saw in 2008.
Reptile Sullivan saw a golden calf in 2008. We saw a corrupt, rusted Chicago calf. No one should read or listen to someone like Sullivan who was so wrong. We’re posting about him today simply to gloat:
“How do you erase that imprinted first image from public consciousness: a president incapable of making a single argument or even a halfway decent closing statement? [snip]
Too arrogant to take a core campaign responsibility seriously. Too arrogant to give his supporters what they deserve.“
Hey, we thought calling Obama “arrogant” was racist? We thought Sullivan believed in hope and change”? Sullivan is hopeless though as he thinks up schemes to salvage his rusted calf:
“A sitting president does not recover from being obliterated on substance, style and likability in the first debate and get much of a chance to come back. He has, at a critical moment, deeply depressed his base and his supporters and independents are flocking to Romney in droves.
I’ve never seen a candidate self-destruct for no external reason this late in a campaign before. [snip]
I’m trying to see a silver lining. But when a president self-immolates on live TV, and his opponent shines with lies and smiles, and a record number of people watch, it’s hard to see how a president and his party recover.”
To further depress Sullivan these developments in favor of Mitt Romney are taking place even as early voting is in full swing in many states. The news and the polls are all bad news for Sullivan, the DailyKooks and Barack Obama.
It’s not just a singular poll that is bad news for Obama. More polls: Romney now within three points in Michigan, two in Pennsylvania. The Battleground poll in the field before the Obama Denver Debate Disaster had more devastating news for Barack. Wait until the post debate numbers show up and we might start to see open windows in Chicago with Hopium Guzzlers jumping off the ledge.
If the polls are not enough to ensure Mittmentum the news is certain to hurt Obama 29 days and counting until Election Day proper. There is a hideous fundraising scandal which must be investigated at some point, hopefully during the Romney administration. This Obama fundraising Watergate but worse scandal will likely show hundreds of millions of illegally raised funds in 2008 and 2012. The Obama thugs in charge of this fundraising illegality (which here at Big Pink we yelled about in 2008 to no avail) must be sent to the most dangerous prisons to be found in America.
Then there is the Benghazi Libya disaster that is every day exposed as more and more lies. We want an investigation. We want Romney to make it a central critique at the last debate which will concentrate on foreign policy. Yesterday Mitt Romney began to outline his foreign policy vision but on October 22 he will have to expose Barack Obama’s foreign policy delusions and failures.
Obama’s failures are not restricted to domestic policy. Obama’s failures extend to the foreign policy fields and there he has taken a toll on lives. As we have written before we want Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to provide testimony to Congress about the Benghazi Libya September 11, 2012 terrorist attack and we think she will come out smelling like a rose. The recent news is that the day after September 11, 2012 an Under Secretary of State told Congress the attack was a terrorist attack. The culprit here is Barack Obama and his thwart Hillary Clinton appointee – Susan Rice.
Most troubling to Sullivan and his fellow Hopium Guzzlers has to be the emergence of Mitt Romney the really good candidate. We’ve insulted Mitt Romney repeatedly here (along with just about every Republican candidate running for president this year) and we can shamelessly state that we have never been impressed with Romney. But last Wednesday that changed.
Mitt Romney in Denver was simply outstanding. Romney displayed a Hillaryesque ability to cite facts and figures along with a Bill Clintonesque talent to explain in a clear manner what he intends to do as president and who he is as a man.
What a great deal of analysis about the Denver debate last Wednesday misses is how great Mitt Romney was. It wasn’t so much that Obama was the lumbering, arrogant boob that he usually is. It was that Mitt Romney was very good, outstanding. Even if Obama would have been “on” that night, Romney would have kicked his ass.
When we read or hear that Obama did not mention the 47% comment or Obama did not do this or that and why oh why didn’t Obama say these things – we have an obvious answer: Obama knew better. Obama knew it would not have helped. Obama did not want to fight because he knew no matter what he threw at Romney, Romney would have hit it out of the ballpark.
Obama likely figured the best thing to do was to make the debate as uneventful as possible so that Big Media would say “nothing happened in Denver”. Unfortunately for Obama a lot of Americas cared enough to watch. Unfortunately for Obama the Denver debate featured a split screen with tens of millions of Americans watching Obama, the member of the Choom gang, smoke his reelection away.
The effect of all this news and Denver Debate Disaster for Obama is that now the blinders are coming off from many faces. The Obama America discovered last Wednesday is the Obama we saw in 2008. Now some are reassessing 2008. WaPo’s Chris Cillizza wonders: Is Candidate Obama … overrated?:
“It’s amazing what happens when the emperor is exposed as having no clothes, eh? Suddenly, the media begin asking questions that everyone else asked four years ago about a man who hadn’t even completed one term as Senator and who had no executive experience, running in a distinctly anti-Republican political environment. Chris Cillizza at the Washington Post wonders whether Barack Obama has always been as mediocre a candidate as he was last Wednesday night in the debate: [snip]
Well, we’re finding out more about how Team Obama shattered those fundraising records, too. But Cillizza is wrong about the question being “unimaginable”; plenty of us “imagined” it at the time, and not just about Obama as a candidate. He was easily the least-experienced major-party nominee in decades, with no military, business, or executive experience prior to his candidacy. The only elections he won were in a heavily Democratic region — Chicago — and against Alan Keyes in his one statewide race in 2004. Obama had never distinguished himself as a legislative leader. His only real claim to fame was that he wrote two memoirs and gave a great speech at the 2004 Democratic convention.
In fact, not only were many of us “imagining” that question, we were pointing out Obama’s flaws and foibles on the campaign trail, most of which the press ignored in favor of the Obama narrative of Hope and Change.”
Obama was a treacherous corrupt boob in 2008. Barack Obama is a treacherous corrupt boob in 2012 – only worse and more dangerous. He must be removed from power and shipped off to Chicago or Sing-Sing or a latter day Alcatraz. More and more Americans realize today what we knew years ago.
As more Americans sober up and see the treacherous corrupt boob for what he is the Hopium Guzzlers will feign amazement and shock. Andrew Sullivan, who thinks he is a keen observer, missed seening the obvious. Sullivan has a lot of excuses and worries now. But Andrew Sullivan’s real complaint is that finally America discovered Barack Obama to be what he is. America did not like what it saw.
What is even more important is that Barack Obama discovered America. Obama banged his head right into the reality rock that America is sick of his adjective heavy bromides and pooped platitudes.
Like a walnut crushed by a truck Obama is a broken shell of a man. He was always a shell of illusions and delusions but now that shell is broken. Barack Obama is broken and once he is gone American can begin to be fixed and healed.
