  1. MrRomney has been prepping for this all year.
    MrObama has been cruising with soft-ball questions and teleprompter sing songs for four years.
    I’m looking forward to these debates.
    We’re all looking forward to the VP debates, too..

    • Don’t get your hopes up. Obama has freindlies as moderators for the debates, and the MSM will just censor any Obama gaffes anyway. Meanwhile, I’m sure we’ll spend a lot of time talking about Cayman Island bank accounts and how Romney hates protected groups.

      Romeny will get “When did you stop beating your wife?! Answer NOW!” type questions, while Obama will get “Does it hurt when you’re so wonderful and they dare run a racist scumbag like this Mittster Mormon guy against you? Please take your time, Mr. President.” type questions.

      Ceteris paribus, it wouldn’t even be close, Obama would clown himself from here till Tuesday. That’s why the one thing you will not see is a fair debate, or any retransmission of anything dumb Obama says. It’s fully loaded pro-Obama all the way, like the polls they’ve been busy cooking all year. We wouldn’t want people to notice those clay feet, now, would we?

    • More importantly, don’t forget that he merely “receives” the PDB, which probably means it’s transmitted to him and he glances at it on his iPad.

      I still think it’s funny how the last two weeks had the PDB on the schedule every single day. Tomorrow makes 11 straight business days for the PDB – an absolute record for this PO(tu)S.

  2. The October Surprise: President Obama, it’s estimated by some armchair Vegas bookies, will sputter the phrase ,”er, um,” a mere 420 times during the upcoming debate. Odds are it will be more due to the stumbling, bumbling responses of an incompetent President. RandR2012, I’m voting sensibly.

    • Obama needs your $$$ to destroy this country. Shame on all those Obama supporters who are not contributing $$$ for their own demise! It’s the ‘patriotic’ thing to do…what’s wrong with them? Heck, for $3.00 they can be part of the coming communist revolution!

  3. @Granny – Not sure what you are smoking, but you and snark will need more of it post election – a lot of it. Some, of it to drown your sorrows – the balance of smoke to continue to cloud your judgement.

    Want to make a difference? Consider focusing your efforts on selling your smoke and creating some jobs and increasing the disposable income of your supply chain while nudging the velocity of the nations money supply. That’s the medicine we need…

    Gotta run – have to meet my, my, um, super pac dealer….

  4. It takes three days to learn “Uh, Romeny’s a rich Mormon racist who hates gays and women” as the response to every question?

  5. I am going to be interested in seeing which Obama will show up:

    The Preacher: “This is the time when the planet began to heal!”

    The Southern Cultured Gentleman: “These are jus’ good hard workin’ folks.”

    The Wonkie: “Its always prudent, unlike previous administrations, to lead from behind and let others advance the narrative.”

    NEW DRINKING GAME: every time he says “folks.” PLEASE have a designated driver!

    • Hugh Hewitt has a piece up about what to watch for from Obama. I liked this bit:

      Finally, watch for the parade of straw men, the president’s favorite rhetorical trick. He will set up arguments that have never been made in the service of Republican goals that have never existed, and then he will denounce both. If the appearance of a straw man serves as a trigger in a drinking game, many bottles will empty by the end of Debate No. 1.

    • The one Obama you can be SURE will show up is The Liar.

      The only time you hear him say anything that is NOT deceitful is when he thinks he’s off-mike and among friends, e.g. ““They get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren’t like them, or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations.”, or (to Russian President Dimitri Medvedev) “On all these issues, but particularly missile defense, this, this can be solved but it’s important for him (Vladimir Putin) to give me space.”…“This is my last election. After my election I have more flexibility.”.

      Don’t underestimate the man, he’s not stupid. He knows he can’t be honest during the debates just like he was dishonest about pretty much everything when he ran from President the first time, and he’s very aware of the fact that any momentary truthfullness will be Romeny’s next campaign commercial. He will whine and pule and blame Bush as usual, cast the race card in the unlikely event of any tough questions, and constantly slander Romney with unverified and unproven allegations which the “moderators” will not stop or allow Romeny to answer – but there is no possibility you will get any truth out of him during this event.

      • Oh, I see:

        Tee off on over 7,000 yards of immaculate fairways and greens on the only private Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Course in Nevada. Featuring dramatic elevation changes and fairways that stretch from the shores of Lake Las Vegas to the mountains, this course is sure to challenge players of all skill levels.

          • “Remember, Mr. President, it’s all Bush’s fault.”
            “Remember, Mr. President, it’s all Bush’s fault”
            “Remember, Mr. President, it’s all Bush’s fault”
            “Remember, Mr. President, it’s all Bush’s fault.”
            “Remember, Mr. President, it’s all Bush’s fault”
            “Remember, Mr. President, it’s all Bush’s fault”
            “Remember, Mr. President, it’s all Bush’s fault.”
            “Remember, Mr. President, it’s all Bush’s fault”
            “Remember, Mr. President, it’s all Bush’s fault”
            “Remember, Mr. President, it’s all Bush’s fault.”
            “Remember, Mr. President, it’s all Bush’s fault”
            “Remember, Mr. President, it’s all Bush’s fault”

          • I’m just glad he’s going to be off the TV screen for three days and two nights. Hey, I wonder if he got one of those free room offers from Vegas? My husband and I used to go to Vegas a couple of times a year back in the day…before I had to go through a strip search to get on the plane. Couldn’t afford to go anyway.

          • He is. He was on the course with Slick Willy, a known terrorist, and a socialist from Europe. He is about to roll into hole #19 and drink a beer to look “American Normal” – you know, appeal to the Joe’s and Sally’s on Main Street, USA. All at taxpayer expense.

            *** or ***

            Our President is doing his best to lead the country, make tough decisions, and prepare for the debates.

            A crumb of difference between me and you – I actually “BELIEVE” that both Governor Romney and President Obama are trying to do their best…period…always… They are both good people, care about their family, and wake up wanting what 99.9999% of us want in life. They both champion, want, desire, and pray for what is best for America in the context of a nation among many. They have far more similarities than we want to admit or acknowledge.

            So, we sit back and parse the margin, it gets hard to have a discourse without scratching and biting. Again, our lot is our nature.

          • Mark Knoller, CBS always tweets about it when Obama golfs. He said today that Obama took 6 pizzas to a campaign office in Henderson,NV.

            He also tweeted: Of his debate prep, Pres Obama told a volunteer: “Basically they’re keeping me indoors all the time…they’re making me do my homework.”

  6. He couldn’t prep for the debate in DC? Too many distractions? LOL No it’s way cheaper to fly the entourage to Nevada.Riiiiiight No wonder we are freakin’ broke!!!

    • I’m sure we’ll be reimbursed. For the price of one first class ticket, and the price of one (budget) hotel room.

      And I’m betting he fits in some sort of “policy” speech to write off a bit of it all.

    • Nah, he’s avoiding that annoying Netanyahu guy.

      Obama on BiBi –

      “He keeps coming around and wanting to talk about annoying stuff like Armageddon and Genocide and those nasty Jewish people that my daddies hated SOOO much! Maybe if he were more, you know, Muslim, and wanted to talk about something IMPORTANT, like about ME, we could hang, but right now, I – I just need to go somewhere he won’t follow me…”

  7. Why is Obama staying at an ‘undisclosed location’? Don’t we have a right to know where he is at all times? Wherever he is, it sounds expensive…and fishy. Where is the wife and Granny – at the slots? Sounds like they’re on a mini-vacay!

  8. Here is my recap for September, 2012 regarding travel, events and fundraising.

    I know we are in full election mode, and I do not blame Obama for being out of the WH as much as he is due to campaigning, HOWEVER (this is a BIG caveat) with the Middle East literally blowing up and on fire I would think that he would want to be close to the SR, rather than streaking across the US trying to pump up the “troops” while our real troops are getting killed left and right in Afghanistan by the very people we are trying to train, and Amb. Stevens is being dragged through the streets of Benghazi.

    This is using the POTUS schedule posted on WHD, and the costs are based on cost reported by USA Today and the UK Daily Mail in 2010, if there is any change in the cost, I apologize, but it will not be that significant. Further, miles are based on from major airport to major airport, and DO NOT include any support aircraft, ground transportation, or other travel related expenses. During campaign events, the campaign is expected to reimburse the government for the cost of a first class ticket, but that in no way covers the actual cost of this travel.

    That said, here we go.

    Total miles traveled September, 2012 = 22,254 miles
    September Cost for AF1 = (22,254 /550 avg. air speed of AF1) * $181,757 p/hr for AF1 = $7,354,219

    YTD cost AF1: YTD miles: 121,019 domestic 35,110 international = 156,129 miles (156,129 /550 avg. air speed of AF1) * $181,757 p/hr for AF1 = $51,595,525

    Number of days traveling = 18
    Number of work days for September = 19 (Labor Day). Granted Obama did travel on some weekends, something new in the past 30 days, but actual days that are counted as “work days” for September would be 19.

    Number of events attended = 21 campaign events and 9 fundraisers
    Total number of events attended 30
    I count the appearances on Letterman and The View as campaign events.

    Hope that spreads a little light on the travels of the POTUS. As a side note the Daily Caller had a story a few days ago regarding the cost of Obama and his family (http://dailycaller.com/2012/09/26/taxpayers-spent-1-4-billion-on-obama-family-last-year-perks-questioned-in-new-book/) and noted that the “British taxpayers spent just $57.8 million on the royal family.” We are only $6 million away from that total, and that is just the expense of flying the POTUS in his personal jet.

    • Thank you, Shofar! If AF1 cost alone is $52 million, can only imagine what the cargo and decoy planes that follow him around cost to operate. I doubt the Romneys will abuse the perks of the office like this flimflam man and his bitter wife have done.

    • Shofar, thanks for keeping tally on these expenses. That report from the Daily Caller is a real eye opener as I thought the Royals lived the high life. It’s nothing compared to the Obamas and they aren’t even royalty!

  9. Avoid conditioners with sulfates and keep one protein based conditioner at

    hair loss and can help regrow some hair on some people, but as I said before, the use of 5AR inhibitors only deals

    the only treatment. The platinum blonde is a much sought after persona, and the look, an elegant and beautiful one if carried off properly, is a much desired
