    With poll after poll showing Obama trailing among independents by 5 to 15 points, how is it possible for this race to be close? Rasmussen just today has Romney up 12 points among indies yet shows the race tied. Is Rasmussen now using a 2008 (or even more slanted) dem advantage turnout model?

    "The new system would take 20 percent of the 'best' kidneys or kidneys that have the potential to last the longest, and give them to the 20 percent of patients that could last the longest," Cutler explained. "So, a simple example would be a young donor going into a young patient." And the reverse would be true, too. "Older kidneys would go to older patients," he said. He said the current system of matching donors and recipients is based on how long someone has been waiting, how close the match is, and how likely it is another match could be...

    Searching old newspapers is one of my favorite pastimes, and I have tried to use them many times to shed light on current events — or to inform readers about how the past is prologue to our very interesting present-day quandaries. Recently, I came across a syndicated column from November 1979 that seemed to point 30 years into the future toward an obscure campaign issue that arose briefly in the 2008 presidential campaign.

    The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Sunday shows President Obama and Mitt Romney each attracting support from 46% of voters nationwide. Three percent (3%) prefer some other candidate, and five percent (5%) are undecided. See daily tracking history. When “leaners” are included, the candidates are tied at 48%. Leaners are those who are initially uncommitted to the two leading candidates but lean towards one of them when asked a follow-up question.

    The U.S. troop surge in Afghanistan, which began in 2009, ended this week. As the Times aptly notes, the conclusion of one of Obama’s biggest military endeavors has come and gone with little fanfare. The president is doubtless happy about this, as the mission has been far from an unqualified success: The milestone, which still leaves 68,000 American troops in Afghanistan, went nearly unremarked here, with no statement from President Hamid Karzai or the United States military commander, Gen. John R. Allen, or even from the American ambassador. It was announced on the other side of the planet, by the...

Last week, I introduced readers to John Brennan, the U.S. president's closest advisor for intelligence and counter-terrorism issues. Although Americans know little about Brennan, he plays an essential role in shaping and implementing the expansive, unprecedented targeted killing of suspected terrorists and militants. He is, the New York Times reported, citing administration officials, the "priest whose blessing has become indispensable" to Obama. After Brennan lost out on the nomination for CIA director, he became the White House's homeland security...

At a Milwaukee rally, the president took several shots at the Republican presidential nominee and sought to energize his party’s supporters to help get out the vote in the crucial swing state. “We have always said in this campaign that change takes more than one term,” Obama said, asking for more time to finish the...

    Some conservatives will readily admit that Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney has his share of flaws as a candidate. But he is still much more preferable than the alternative, President Barack Obama, according to Hoover Institution scholar-in-residence Thomas Sowell. “I don’t think Mitt Romney is going to be sparking riots against the American embassies around the world,” Sowell, the author of “Intellectuals and Society: Revised and Expanded Edition,” said said in an appearance on Fox Business Network’s “Cavuto” on Thursday. “[I]t’s not a question of whether they love you or not.

    Something very big is going on in the Middle East. This is not about an inflammatory film or a political assassination in Libya. Rather, recent events confirm that throughout the Muslim world, radical Islam is on the march. The radical Muslims have figured out a much better strategy than the Al Qaeda strategy of the past decade. Instead of terrorist acts aimed at directly wounding the “far enemy,” namely the United States, Islamic radicals are using democracy and public protest to defeat the “near enemy,” namely their own autocratic governments, and seize power. Remarkably President Obama seems to be responding...

That’s the biggest margin in the September survey prior to a presidential election since Bill Clinton led Bob Dole, 50% to 38% in 1996. And, remember, this recent poll was done before America watched Romney belittle almost half the nation. For the last several days I’ve been deluged with calls from my inside-the-beltway friends telling me “Romney’s dead.” Hold it....

    Comedy has always been a place for taboo subjects, but many are asking if Saturday Night Live went too far with a sketch aired Thursday night in which Gov. Mitt Romney is repeatedly portrayed as a racist. The sketch, which aired during a "SNL Weekend Update Thursday" special on NBC last night, was based on the recent "leaked video" of Gov. Romney stating he will not try to win over the 47% of voters who loyally support President Obama. However, SNL took the premise further, by portraying Romney as secretly racist. At one point in the sketch, Jason Sudekis (who...

    President Barack Obama is about to release or transfer 55 Gitmo prisoners, despite reports that the Libyan believed to be behind the killing of US Ambassador Christopher Stevens was a former Guantanamo inmate transferred to Libyan custody. The large percentage of those scheduled to be released are Yemeni, according to a list made public by the Obama administration. Obama stopped the release or transfer of Yemeni inmates in 2010, because the conditions in the country were viewed as too "unsettled" at the time. A release or transfer of 55 inmates means Obama is moving out one third of the prisoners...

    A new National Journal/Heartland Monitor Poll out this morning finds Obama leading Mitt Romney nationally by 50-43 among likely voters. The poll probes voter attitudes towards the economy in a very interesting way that really explains why Obama may be winning re-election. The key takeaway is the poll’s confirmation that Romney’s theory of the race — which is built on the “are you better off” question — seems to be flawed, as I’ve repeated far too often. Ron Brownstein explains: The survey also shows why it may be difficult for Republicans to center the election on the famous Ronald Reagan...

Despite a continuing gray economic sky and unrest in the Mideast, the president has edged ahead of Romney in polls in some of the most competitive states, including Iowa and Virginia, and forced Romney to redouble efforts in Florida and Ohio, without which he has little chance of becoming president.

    Obama campaign spokesman Ben LaBolt said President Obama sees no need for him to brief the American people on the Mid-East crisis. “How would this benefit him?” LaBolt asked. “The media have already moved on to other issues that are working in his favor. There is no outcry from voters demanding answers as to how this happened. The only people who want him to speak out about it are his opponents. So, I think keeping quite is the smart thing to do.” Despite the President’s reluctance to speak to the American people, he and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton have...

    The Weekly Standard ^ | Oct 1, 2012, Vol. 18, No. 03 | By STEPHEN F. HAYES
    The Obama administration has sought to explain nearly everything that has happened over the past two weeks as a response to the video. President Obama denounced it during his remarks at the memorial for the four Americans killed in Libya. So did Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. White House spokesman Jay Carney has mentioned it almost daily. At the end of last week, the United States spent $70,000 to buy ads in Pakistan to distance the U.S. government from its message. That’s ironic. In its effort to deflect blame for the unrest, the administration has given more attention to this...

    I’ve been feeling a little guilty about not reporting on Lady M’s sacrificin’ for the past week or so. So as I wrap up my vacation, let me at least pass on news about this campaign stop in Gainesville as originally reported by our own Blonde Gator. Apparently MO appeared before a huge crowd at the University of Florida, and wowed them with her own two versions of ‘gator choppers: Nice gator skin dress! She then awed those gathered for the pep rally with tall tales of Big Guy’s respect for and loyalty to everyone: "We know that my husband...

    A recently graduated daughter of an ex co-worker sent me a mailing that read something like this: As an educator I am a person who votes on the issues that are near and dear to my heart. I believe we should revere our elders; we need to protect and support our aging populations. I believe in also providing support for those brave enough to stand up and fight for our country and freedoms. I believe in education in order to better prepare our future leaders, scholars, workers, and in turn create a stronger nation. I believe in providing the best...

    Secretary Janet Napolitano told a Senate committee that the Administration is drafting an Executive Order that would grant her Department of Homeland Security “sweeping new powers over the Internet.” “As we saw this past week, irresponsible use of the Internet by anti-Islamic bigots spawned riots against US embassies throughout the Muslim world,” Napolitano explained. “The Administration needs the authority to interdict inflammatory and dangerous messages before they can cause trouble.” Napolitano told Senators that “the Executive Order is necessary because Congress has neglected its responsibility to pass appropriate enabling legislation. The President isn’t going to sit by and allow threats...
