President Obama's Winning Speech November 7th, 2012 - Highlights
FROM POLITICO by Charles Mahtesian
A Philadelphia Inquirer poll released Saturday has President Barack Obama leading Mitt Romney in Pennsylvania, 50 percent to 39 percent.
The post-convention surge that is often anticipated by both political parties in polling data appears to currently benefit President Barack Obama, who leads Republican Presidential Nominee Mitt Romney by 11 points among likely voters in the Keystone State, 50% to 39%, with a margin of error +/- 4%.
Pennsylvania Democrats are more consolidated behind Obama, with 77% in favor of Obama and 13% in favor of Romney, while Republicans are 18% in favor of Obama and 71% in favor of Romney.
The voters provided their opinion of the President, with a 56% favorable/40% unfavorable rating.
Following the conventions, Obama’s favorability rating has increased by 3 points, while his unfavorable rating has decreased by 6 points. Opinions of Romney have improved slightly following the conventions, but he still has a net negative personal popularity rating among voters in state, with 46% favorable/48% unfavorable rating.
As the first post-convention poll out of Pennsylvania, the 11-point margin among likely voters underscores why the state is fading from the battleground radar. The Inquirer’s last poll, fielded in late August, reported a 51 percent to 42 percent Obama advantage.
The latest poll, conducted Sept. 9 through Sept. 12, reported a surprising degree of awareness of the state’s new voter ID law: 80 percent of voters are familiar with it, including 41 percent who said they are very familiar. For all the criticism of the law from Democrats, roughly two-thirds (65%) of Pennsylvania voters support it.
Just 5 percent said the law will make voting difficult for them this year, compared to 94 percent who said it will not make it difficult.http://www.politico.com/blogs/charlie-mahtesian/2012/09/pennsylvania-poll-obama-up-by-1... more

Mitt Romney’s plan to “replace” President Obama’s new immigration policy would only allow immigrants to avoid deportation if they served in the military, according to Talking Points Memo.
Romney outlined what he called a “civil but resolute” approach to undocumented immigration in a speech before the National Association of Latino Elected Officials in Orlando, where he also vowed to give spouses and young children priority in the green-card allocation process.
Last week, the Obama administration issued an order preventing the deportation of 800,000 immigrants who had been brought into the country before the age of 16. Under Obama’s plan, immigrants would be eligible if they were under 30 and had lived in the country for five years while earning a high school diploma or GED, or enlisting in the military. It would not be a path to citizenship, as proposed by the DREAM Act, but would grant them a two-year period in which to apply for a work permit.
Romney called the move “a temporary measure that he seems to think will be just enough to get him through the election.”

Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul on Tuesday admitted that he got a monthly Social Security check, a program that he eventually wants to eliminate.
During an interview on MSNBC, Paul insisted that he would preserve Social Security longer than some of the others in his party.
“I want young people to opt out of Social Security,” the Texas congressman told MSNBC contributor Mike Barnicle. “In my more pragmatic stands on how we get to the place I want to go, actually I’m probably offering a program where some of these programs that we have taught people to be so dependant on, I would probably preserve them longer than others because we are going to lose them because of the bankruptcy that is coming.”
“Are you on Social Security,” The Huffington Post’s Sam Stein wondered. “Do you get Social Security checks?”
“I do,” Paul replied.
“You just told younger generations that they should wean themselves off of this social contract but you haven’t done it yourself,” Stein noted. “You’re not the wealthiest man in Congress, I’m not saying that. But you have enough means to take care of yourself in retirement. Shouldn’t you provide an example?”
“No,” Paul said. “I think the programs are so designed, just as I use the post office too. I use government highways. I do that too. I use the banks. I use the Federal Reserve system. But that doesn’t mean you can’t work to remove this. The same way on Social Security, I am trying to make a transition.”
“I personally don’t see any inconsistency in that,” he added.

Although his son Rand has endorsed Mitt Romney, Rep. Ron Paul (R-TX) said Tuesday that he has no plans of doing so himself.
“Well, it looks like he has the delegates, yes,” he told CNN’s Wolf Blitzer. “But he doesn’t have the control of the hearts and minds of the people.
“And right now, a lot of people — a lot of delegate who are pledged to vote for Romney are actually very strong supporters of ours and will be strongly supporting us when we want to put things into the platform to say, hey, we don’t need another war,” Paul continued. “Yes, we do need to audit the Federal Reserve. Yes, we ought to really cut spending.”
“I take it you’re not yet ready yourself to endorse Romney, are you?” Blitzer asked.
“No, not really,” Paul responded. “No way.”

Harvard Law School professor Roberto Mangabeira Unger hopes that his former student, President Barack Obama, is defeated at the polls this November — and he’s calling for that defeat to come at the hands of the very people who elected him.
In a little-noticed video published online last month that became the subject of reporting by The Associated Press over the weekend, Unger explains that while Republicans threaten to remake America, Democrats offer no alternative and must significantly or risk further stagnation.
“The Democratic Party has no new direction,” he warns. “[Obama] has failed to advance the progressive cause.”
Unger admits that Obama’s defeat would cost the nation in “judicial and administrative appointments,” but those costs, he said, aren’t so great as those of an Obama victory. “He has spent trillions of dollars to rescue the moneyed interests and left workers and homeowners to their own devices.”
He concedes, however, that if Obama rival Mitt Romney wins, it’s likely to make income inequality “even greater than it is now.”
Still: “Unless he is defeated, there cannot be a contest for the reorientation of the Democratic Party as the vehicle of a progressive alternative in the country,” Unger concludes.
“Only a political reversal can allow the voice of democratic prophecy to speak once again in American life,” he says. “Its speech is always dangerous. Its silence is always fatal.”
Unger, an author, philosopher and two-time Brazilian presidential candidate, supported President Obama in 2008.

Monday night on CNN, former Minnesota Gov. Jesse Ventura called for political parties in the United States to be abolished.
“We need to abolish the political parties,” he told Piers Morgan. “Make them political action committees.”
Ventura compared the Democrats and Republicans to the Bloods and Crips, two notorious Los Angeles street gangs and fierce rivals.
“They call the blue states Democrats, well that is also the colors of the Crips,” he explained. “Naturally, the Bloods’ color is red and the Republican states are called red states.”
“They’re worse,” Venture continued. “Let me explain why they’re worse: The Crips and the Bloods, the street gangs, while they can be devastating to a certain small part of the population, the Democrips and the Rep-bloodicans, they affect everybody in this country.”

The Justice Department’s Civil Rights Division is planning to sue the state of Florida for purging voters from its rolls in violation of federal law, Assistant Attorney General Thomas Perez said in a letter to Florida Secretary of State Ken Detzner Monday.
DOJ warned Florida last month that its efforts to purge individuals believed to be noncitizens from the voter rolls would violate federal law because the process had not been cleared by either the Justice Department or a federal court, and because the purge was taking place too close to Florida’s August primary. Perez wrote Monday that he “authorized the initiation of an enforcement action against Florida in federal court” because the state had “indicated its unwillingness to comply” with federal laws.

Presumptive Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney on Friday said that President Barack Obama’s call to hire more police, firefighters and teachers proved that he didn’t “get the message” from Republican wins in the recent Wisconsin recall elections.
During a press conference earlier on Friday, Obama had called on Congress to pass a jobs proposal that would prevent layoffs and rehire public workers like police, firefighters and teachers.
“The truth of the matter is 3 million jobs over the last 27 months, over 800,000 just this year alone,” the president told reporters. “The private sector is doing fine. Where we’re seeing weaknesses in our economy have to do with state and local government.”
At a campaign stop in Iowa, Romney blasted that assertion.
“For the president of the United States to stand up and say the private sector is doing fine is going to go down in history as an extraordinary miscalculation and misunderstanding by a president who’s out of touch,” the GOP hopeful charged.
“And his answer for economic vitality, by the way, was, of course, pushing aside the private sector, which he said is doing fine,” Romney continued. “Instead, he wants to add more to government. He wants another stimulus. He wants to hire more government workers. He says we need more firemen, more policeman, more teachers.”
“Did he not get the message of Wisconsin? The American people did! It’s time for us to cut back on government!”

In a last minute addition to the Agriculture Reform, Food and Jobs Act of 2012, Sen. Ron Wyden (D-OR) has submitted an amendment that would legalize the production of industrial hemp, a potential new bumper crop for U.S. farmers.
“Industrial hemp is used in many healthy and sustainable consumer products. However, the federal prohibition on growing industrial hemp has forced companies to needlessly import raw materials from other countries,” Wyden said in prepared text. “My amendment to the Farm Bill will change federal policy to allow U.S. farmers to produce hemp for these safe and legitimate products right here, helping both producers and suppliers to grow and improve Oregon’s economy in the process.”
Allowing American farmers to produce industrial hemp, which is different from its more notorious cousin marijuana, would yield significant and immediate profits the first year, according to an analysis conducted in 1998 (PDF) by the Center for Business and Economic Research at the University of Kentucky.
Researchers found that farmers in the state of Kentucky alone could see between $220 to $605 in net profits per acre of hemp. Adjusted for inflation using the consumer price index, those 1998 dollars would actually be worth $310 and $854 today, although the study’s authors note that variables in supply and demand for hemp could change that valuation.
The average price farmers are getting on an acre of corn, which has been falling thanks to relatively strong supply this year, clocked in at roughly $921 according to U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) figures out last week, but their overall take drops significantly due to the costs of production, leaving them in the $200 range on net profits. While a legalized hemp industry would likely never become as essential to Americans as corn, the potential for a high value crop and hundreds of millions, if not billions, in new economic activity is clear.
“This is the first time since the 1950s that language supporting hemp has come to the floor of the House or Senate for a vote. The last time such language was presented was the Miller’s Amendment to the Marihuana Tax Act,” Eric Steenstra, president of the advocacy group Vote Hemp, said in an advisory. “The time is past due for the Senate as well as President Obama and the Attorney General to prioritize the crop’s benefits to farmers and to take action… With the U.S. hemp industry valued at over $400 million in annual retail sales and growing, a change in federal policy to allow hemp farming would mean instant job creation, among many other economic and environmental benefits.”
It’s not clear if the bill has a shot, however. Conservative groups like the Club for Growth are urging Senators to vote against the farm bill, which is under consideration this week, because it has too many attachments unrelated to the agricultural sectors.
The bill’s sponsor, Sen. Debbie Stabenow (D-MI), has also called on other Senators to stop adding unrelated amendments, which the Senate spent much of Wednesday doing. If the Senate’s top partisans cannot find an agreeable solution to limiting the bill’s amendments, it is likely to languish and die.
The federal government does not differentiate between marijuana and industrial hemp, but it allows the importation of thousands of products made from industrial hemp. President Barack Obama’s drug czar, Gil Kerlikowske, warned as recently as April in comments made online that industrial hemp was a “controlled substance,” which sent hemp advocates on a rhetorical tirade.
Bills seeking to legalize industrial hemp have cleared at least one legislative chamber in 17 states overall, including Maine, Montana, North Dakota, Oregon, Vermont and West Virginia, where those bills became law. Scientists say the psychoactive component of marijuana is almost completely undetectable in hemp.

Ted Nugent recently said presumptive Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney’s campaign “expressed support” after the musician made comments that caused the U.S. Secret Service to wonder if he had threatened the life of President Barack Obama.
In a recent interview where the conservative rocker flew into a rage, Nugent revealed to CBS reporter Jeff Glor that he had spoken to Romney’s campaign after he told a crowd at the National Rifle Association (NRA) convention that he would be “either be dead or in jail by this time next year” if Obama was re-elected.
“We need to ride into that battlefield and chop their heads off in November!” he exclaimed to the NRA audience. “Any questions?”
Glor wondered if the Romney campaign was “unhappy” over those remarks.
“No,” Nugent replied. “They expressed support. … I got the sensation that it was — not from Mitt himself or Ms. Romney — ‘Stay on course, Ted.’ Freedom of speech is beautiful thing.”
The Romney supporter recalled that he had an “adorable” meeting with the Secret Service for as long as 40 minutes after making the controversial comments.
“I feel sorry for liberals who can be that brain dead as to take a clear statement of fear on my part and turn it into a threat against somebody else,” Nugent explained.
“If Mitt Romney wins, he needs at least some of the moderate vote,” Glor noted. “You are many things, you are not moderate.”
“Call me when you sit down across from someone who has more families with dying little boys and girls who get a call to take them on their last fishing trip in life!” an enraged Nugent screamed. “Call me when you meet someone who does that more than I do because that’s really moderate! In fact, you know what that is? That’s extreme! I’m an extremely loving, passionate man! And people who investigate me honestly — without the baggage of political correctness — ascertain the conclusion that I’m a damn nice guy! And if you can find a screening process more powerful than that, I’ll suck your fucking dick!”
“Or fuck you!” he said, turning to Glor’s female producer. “How’s that sound?”
Glor told CBS hosts Charlie Rose and Erica Hill that Nugent later offered a “full apology” for his outburst.
“Yesterday, he called me on the phone after we got back from New York,” Glor said. “And said after our interview, he was rushed to the emergency room and had a kidney stone removed. So, that’s what he said may have contributed to his high level of energy.”
The CBS reporter added that Nugent’s musical career was not suffering because he is “more known now” after the controversial comments.
“His quote to us was that his ‘guitar eats faces,’ as only Ted Nugent can say it.”

Top Republican Strategist Denies Women Are Paid Less Than Men
This morning, during a heated discussion with Rachel Maddow on Meet The Press, GOP consultant Alex Castellanos denied that women make 77 cents for a man’s dollar in the workplace and noted, “there are lots of reasons for that.” Maddow expressed shock at the assertion, but concluded that it explained why Republicans and Mitt Romney are so hesitant to embrace the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act of 2009, a law that helps women hold accountable employers who discriminate in the pay practices based on gender.
“Now we know, at least from both of your perspectives,” Maddow said, pointing to Castellanos and Romney surrogate Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA), “women are not fairing worse than men in the economy that women aren’t getting paid less for equal work.” “It’s about policy and whether or not you want to fix some of the structural discrimination that women really do face that Republicans don’t believe is happening,” she added. Castellanos responded to Maddow’s policy argument by remarking on her passion, to which the MSNBC host took offense:
CASTELLANOS: It is about policy and I love how passionate you are. I wish you were as right about what you’re saying as you are passionate about it. I really do.
MADDOW: That’s really condescending. This is a stylistic issue. My passion on this issue is actually me making a factual argument on it.

Conservative Fox News contributor Dick Morris is asserting that the news media “ruined” President George W. Bush’s presidency because coverage of the Iraq war was “too harsh.”
During a Wednesday morning segment with Morris, Fox & Friends co-host Steve Doocy pointed out that Arthur Brisbane, ombudsman for The New York Times, recently complained that the paper had been more critical of President George W. Bush while he was in office than it had been of President Barack Obama.
“It’s terrific that he said that,” Morris explained. “There are two factors that make the media liberal. One is that the reporters are liberal. But the other fact is that the media tends to react to what it last did badly. So for example, it was relatively mild toward Bush during the early years of his administration after 9/11, and then it over compensated by being too harsh during the Iraq war.”
“And then when Obama got elected they said, ‘Oh, wow. We just ruined a presidency with Bush. Maybe we’ll be nicer to Obama,’” he added. “And I think you will begin to see a bit of pendulum swing against Obama even though the media itself is liberal.”
A 2003 study by Fairness & Accuracy in Reporting (FAIR) found that 71 percent of guest on U.S. television news programs were pro-war, while only 3 percent were against the Iraq war — a ratio of almost 25 to 1.
A recent analysis by the Pew Research Center’s Project for Excellence in Journalism found that coverage of presumptive Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney was twice as favorable as the coverage of Obama during the primary season.

The leader of a Christian think tank is blasting the media for not investigating President Barack Obama’s citizenship.
During a Tuesday segment on American Family Association’s AFA Today radio program, Tony Perkins, head of the Family Research Council — a hate group, according the the Southern Poverty Law Center — encouraged listeners to read an article by conservative columnist Sandy Rios which suggests the president is weakening the U.S. so that communists in Russia can “reclaim power.”
“I would encourage you to read the article,” Perkins said. “In society today, we throw around labels a lot and I think we’ve become desensitized and what we’re looking here and what’s Sandy’s bringing up here is not labels. We’re not calling somebody a Marxist, a socialist. … We’re looking at facts.”
“What the media has done — going back to our earlier discussion about the media — is they have attempted to marginalize anyone who challenges this administration on those principles and that driving ideology.”
He added: “You know, it goes back to what they did to those that, you know, questioned the issue of his birth certificate. Look, I don’t know about all that, but I will tell you this: It’s a legitimate issue from the standpoint of what the Constitution says.”
“When you put it all together it connects the dots. It makes you wonder why did he risk Congress — the control of the House — to push through health care? It’s a part of that ideology.”
Rios, who also appeared on the program, applauded tea party favorite Rep. Allen West (R-FL) for accusing up to 81 House Democrats of secretly being members of the Communist Party.
“The point is when Allen refuses to back down, I’m with him all the way,” she explained. “The first year that Barack Obama was in office, in the White House, there was an ornament on Christmas Tree of Mao Zedong, which doesn’t — that may sound silly. But that’s not silly to me.”

The Daily Caller’s Tucker Carlson launched another attack at the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) on Hannity Monday evening.
Appearing on Fox’s panel discussion, Carlson’s latest outrage at the NAACP stemmed from its Martin County branch’s decision to cancel its Tuesday event and unitive Rep. Allen West (R-FL) from speaking after he insisted that “up to” 81 Democratic members of Congress were secretly Communists.
“The NAACP, storied history though it has, is a totally discredited group,” Carlson said. “And anyone that doesn’t think so doesn’t know much about the modern NAACP. It represents virtually no one. It’s bankrupt literally and morally. It’s an absurd fringe group and I don’t know why we pay any attention to what they think. We’re bullied into it because it was, at one point, a force for good.”
Carlson’s comments are the latest hostile statements he has said about the NAACP. In 2010, Carlson called the organization “totally discredited” and “pathetic.” He also labeled the NAACP a “sad joke that should be shut down” in 2007.

And now, Gentle Readers, it’s time for another edition of Tea Party Republicans Say the Darnedest Things. On Thursday, April 19 at a Tea Party rally in Lamoni, Iowa, Think Progress reports that Republican Congressional candidate Dan Dolan declared that President Obama’s support of the so-called “Buffett Rule” is proof that he “does not love” the United States of America.
It is Dolan’s contention, apparently, that the president is using public support of the Buffett Rule, named for billionaire Warren Buffett, an adjustment designed to bring tax rates on millionaires in line with the rates normal citizens pay, as a wedge issue to divide the country against itself.
Dolan said, “I have a hard time thinking that he loves this country if he’s willing to turn them against themselves for his own advancement.”
Public opinion polling shows that the Buffett Rule enjoys a wide margin of support among American citizens, with 72 percent in favor, including 53 percent of Republicans.
