CNN Poll: 'Obama Got His Ass Kicked By Historic Margin'

This is the largest margin of victory for any candidate since CNN's post-debate poll was first started in 1984.

CNN POLL: Romney Annihilates Obama

Denver, Colorado (CNN) – Two-thirds of people who watched the first presidential debate think that Republican nominee Mitt Romney won the showdown, according to a nationwide poll conducted Wednesday night.

According to a CNN/ORC International survey conducted right after the debate, 67% of debate watchers questioned said that the Republican nominee won the faceoff, with one in four saying that President Barack Obama was victorious.

"No presidential candidate has topped 60% in that question since it was first asked in 1984," says CNN Polling Director Keating Holland.

Andrew Sullivan: 'This was a huge disaster'...

I am amazed that people accept a soap opera like last nights so called debate as a method to pick the best possible person for the office of President. Once elected, nether one of these men is going to do one damn thing they say they will do. The corporate agenda for them during their term has not
been adopted yet, once it is that is what they do. What they claim they will do during the debate is meaningless.

Are the voters oblivious to the corporate control of the Commission of Presidential Debates? Add to that the corporate control of the Republican and Democratic parties and the corruption even criminal activity necessary to allow such control? Wake up people it's a hell of a lot later then you think!

I think the eagle with the olive branch and thirteen arrows in it's talons on the Great American Seal Of The Unite States, needs to be replaced by an Ostrich With It's Head In The Sand.

There are some informed eagles in the USA but the uninformed ostriches out number them ten to one and the result is, we use scripted soap operas to pick the President and the U.S. Congress most of whom are actually corporate employees pretending to work for the american people

Here it is. I'll get it reposted one of these days when I have time to clean it up. It's a sloppy post.

MOO chelle looked as bitter as ever it just kills me how someone who is so large like she is has the nerve to try and tell others how to eat she should try leading by example. But then they are quite hypocritical with wealth redistribution as well keeping their own multi millions while O's brother lives in a hut and his illegal alien aunt lives in subsidized housing.

Romney just kicked his Ass!

I see your amazement and raise with my own astonishment, not so much at the serfs' fascination with last night's puppet preening match, but that they swallow the media's preordained declaration that the red puppet smashed the blue puppet. How absurd. The serfs dined on this nonsense like it was lobster.

Red puppet Robama looked like he had to poop really bad the whole time, bouncing on his heels like a heroin addict who just did a bump waiting for his tardy dealer to show, snarling at Old Man Lehrer (whose own pupils were dilated beyond belief). Aside from the splotchy red visage beneath his plastic haircut, Robama was churlish the entire time.

True to Rock-em-Sock-em robot form, the red 'bot and 'blue bot did trade rehearsed barbs. Robama let loose with, "you don't pick winners and losers, you just pick losers." Blue 'bot Obamney countered with, "do you think [red puppet] doesn't discuss the details of his plans because they're too good?"

From that pair of anthills in the proceedings, it was all down hill. The notion that red puppet prevailed is asinine propaganda. How many times did he leave wholly unrebutted blue puppet's assertion about adding $2 trillion in unrequested defense spending?

Here's a newsflash. Before last night, with five weeks to go, the presidential race looked like the 1973 Kentucky Derby down the stretch. Robama is the most pathetic challenger ever fielded by either party--including Walter Mondale, who at least managed not to shotgun blast his own face off about every two weeks. Before last night, red puppet was barely visible in his own quicksand. And that's bad for media ratings. Period.

The media needs a horse race that cannot be provided by this pair of corporate gelding wankers. So the media created a race instead with this preposterous declaration of Robama the knockout winner. What's ridiculous is that people fall for it.

Could you tell when they were lying ?? Their lips moved.
When are people going to realise politicians are professionals at spinning BS. Oh yes before the election we will do this and do that, then afterwards do a complete backflip.
Obama is a classic example. People voted for his stance on war, employment and speaking for the real everyday American. Once elected he did nothing. Sold out everyone to corruption.
How can I place a vote for Ronald McDonald, at least with him I know what I'll get !!!!!!!

Just remember, both players were pre approved by the movers and shakers before they were put up on the alter so that you can believe you have choices...

A two horse race with the same owner of the two horses only means the owner can't lose.

Are assholes born or did they go to school to acquire the trait?


"Neither of them says a serious word about the causes of the financial crisis; the lack of prosecution of banks and bankers; sharply rising inequality in educational opportunity, income and wealth; energy policy and global warming; America's competitive lag in broadband infrastructure; the impact of industrialized food on healthcare costs; the last decade's budget deficits and the resultant national debt; or the large-scale, permanent elimination of millions of less-skilled jobs through both globalization and advances in robotics and artificial intelligence."

Will Bankers Ever Go to Jail? 10 Questions Answered

So if Schneiderman is successful, is Jamie Dimon getting frog-marched to Rikers?


Why not?

Even though some analysts believe JPMorgan could end up paying up to $3 billion in a settlement (the suit identifies $22.5 billion in losses from rotten mortgage-backed securities), Schneiderman’s complaint doesn’t identify any particular bad actor at Bear Stearns.

In announcing the suit Tuesday, Schneiderman said, “It would be tough for us to bring criminal charges, which is why we’re bringing a broad civil complaint.”

That’s partly because of the law Schneiderman used: the Martin Act, a New York state law that requires a lower standard for fraud claims, has a five-year statute of limitations for criminal charges, but six years for civil charges. Since much of the activity described in the suit happened before 2007, the statute of limitations precluded a criminal prosecution.

But past civil suits against entire banks have disappointed activists who want to see robust punishments for the bankers at the heart of the subprime mortgage boom.

For instance, in settling civil charges over its failure to disclose a hedge fund’s role in designing mortgage securities, Goldman Sachs paid $550 million—a drop in the bucket compared with their 2011 profits of $4.4 billion.

Even when the government does go after individuals, it’s not easy to win.

When the SEC sued Brian Stoker, a Citigroup executive, for allegedly not disclosing that Citigroup had bet against a mortgage security it was selling to investors, the jury found in Stoker’s favor, even though it subsequently issued a statement that said, “This verdict should not deter the S.E.C. from investigating the financial industry.”

(The SEC was basically forced into bringing the charges against Stoker, since a federal judge rejected its original $285 million settlement with Citigroup.)

Will anyone go to jail, ever?

Not from this case. But the suit could be a model for similar cases in the future. As Schneiderman said in a statement, “This is a workable template for future actions against issuers of residential mortgage-backed securities that defrauded investors and cost millions of Americans their homes.”

Wait, so the head of a task force whose specific mandate is to prosecute people for the actions that lead to the financial crisis isn’t even trying to put anyone behind bars?

What do you want me to say?

Now you know why Barack’s Wall Street Problem is Now America’s


Why Romney Should Attack One of Obama’s Greatest Political Vulnerabilities

Why has President Obama so far avoided responsibility for one of the most notorious failures of his administration, deciding not to pursue potential Wall Street crimes? Because Obama’s negative ads – and Mitt Romney’s own foibles — have successfully defined Romney as the candidate for the 1 percent. A recent Esquire/Yahoo! News poll shows that 58 percent think Romney would pursue policies that favor the wealthy, while just 23 percent say the same about Obama.

In reality, the willful failure of the Obama administration to investigate Wall Street executives is the political issue that should most frighten the Obama campaign – and I have little doubt it was the prime motivation for the unusual timing of the filing yesterday of a case against JPMorgan/Bear Stearns by New York State Attorney General Eric Schneiderman. Ignoring potential criminal wrongdoing by his largest 2008 campaign donors discredits the Obama message across the board: He hasn’t always fought the 1% on behalf of the 99%, and he’s the main reason Wall Street plays by different rules than Main Street. If an already dispirited Obama base – those who by the millions originally sympathized with the anger that drove the Occupy Wall Street movement – were constantly reminded by the Romney campaign of this odious Obama failure, some of them might stay home in November. And it might be a tipping point for independents. A recent Labaton Sucharow survey found that 61% of Americans will significantly factor a candidate’s commitment to rooting out corporate wrongdoing in their voting decision in November.
