Politifact: Year’s Biggest Liars

Mitt Romney’s comment about Jeeps being built in China was called the lie of the year by Politifact.com. “But it turns out Romney was right,” says Jodi Miller. “So it looks like Politifact being unbiased was actually the lie of the year.”  She also weighs in on President Obama’s inauguration and Manti Te’o’s fake girlfriend in this edition of NewsBusted.

GOP Should Have Run Cain

Playing a little Monday morning quarterback, Alfonzo Rachel builds a case for why the Republicans should have run Herman Cain against President Obama, instead of Mitt Romney. Rachel also opines on the future of conservatism and the Republican Party in this edition of ZoNation.

Hey, Look on the Bright Side

We would have preferred if voters had elected the straight-shooting and hard-working Mitt Romney as our Commander in Chief yesterday to put Americans back to work and begin to heal the nation’s divisions. But on the flip side, the re-election of President Obama guarantees that Call Me Stormy will remain on the case over the next four years — keeping you entertained, amused and outraged, while serving as a necessary counterbalance to the disgraced and deceitful Lamestream Media as well as the armies of entrenched plutocrats and bureaucrats who place their own crony interests ahead of the country’s long-term well-being.

We lost this skirmish, but by the slimmest of margins — taking more House seats and far more governorships than the Leftist Democrats. We must congratulate them on their victories in the Presidential race and in the Senate, but at the same time redouble our efforts to ensure the next skirmish ends with different results.

One silver lining: The Botox San Francisco freakazoid Nancy Pelosi will most likely be deposed from her post as leader of the House Democrats. And we doubt Obama will be squandering billions of dollars on bogus green energy initiatives fronted by his friends and supporters, or demonizing Appalachia and coal miners quite so stridently. Those are perhaps small victories, but they are victories nevertheless, and we should cherish them, while girding up for the larger battles that loom ahead.

A View from Abroad

Ezra Levant, conservative pundit from the Sun News Network, in Canada, offers his assessment of the US Presidential election and makes a bold prediction: Romney will carry both Wisconsin and Ohio to win a majority of the Electoral College votes. H/T small dead animals

Electoral Fight to the Finish

Launched in the past week, the Tea Party News Network aims to serve as a counterbalance to the Leftie apologists who dominate the Lamestream Media. Here, TPNN analyst Tim Constantine examines the race that really matters Tuesday — the race between Mitt Romney and Barack Obama to acquire 270 electoral votes. While Romney has surged in the national polls, Constantine notes it will all go for naught if Romney doesn’t stake out an Electoral College majority.  He presents a few scenarios outlining who can win and how.

Ohio Rally Draws 30,000

Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan attracted a crowd of 30,000 today in West Chester, Ohio — the largest rally for either party this election cycle. The boisterous audience heard warmup pitches from an impressive roster of GOP dignitaries, including former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani, Sens. Marco Rubio, John McCain and Kelly Ayotte, Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, Ohio Gov. John Kasich and former Secretary of State Condoleeza Rice. Kid Rock also entertained the faithful.

The buzz generated will carry over through Tuesday, pushing Ohio into the Romney-Ryan column. Romney sounded positively Reaganesque, delivering an uplifting and optimistic oratory, one of his best for this campaign. He’s on a roll, and you won’t have too long to wait to see the results.

West Chester is in the heart of Butler County, just north of Cincinnati. As of today, GOP requests for absentee ballots in Butler County are outpacing Democratic requests by a margin of 4 to 1. In neighboring Warren County, the margin is even larger, approaching 5 to 1.

PS: The Cincinnati Enquirer placed the crowd size at 30,000, citing police and fire department officials. Steve Peoples of the Associated Press low-balled the estimate, saying only 18,000 were on hand. Peoples is the same reporter caught in a similar lie this summer when Paul Ryan revisited his alma mater, Miami University in Ohio. Peoples claimed “hundreds of supporters” turned out to see Ryan, but the Enquirer, Fox 19 of Cincinnati and WHIO-TV out of Dayton all placed the turnout for the August event between 4,000 and 5,500. Peoples might have legitimate press credentials, but he obviously can’t count. Remedial training with Big Bird for him.

In advance, Mayor Giuliani fired up the throng with a stinging indictment outlining the Obama Administration’s many glaring failures, from Benghazi to enactment of burdensome regulations that have hamstrung businesses and stymied job growth.

Romney Closer to Victory

PJTV’s Trifecta — Bill Whittle, Stephen Green and Stephen Kruiser — make their electoral college predictions for Tuesday’s Presidential vote. All forecast a Romney victory in the range of 291-316 electoral votes. Call Me Stormy concurs. Down to the state-by-state breakouts, our projections match those of Stephen Kruiser — 295 for Romney, 243 for Obama — but we believe the GOP challenger also could carry Maine’s 2nd Congressional district and grab its one electoral vote for a little extra padding. Pennsylvania bears watching as a wild-card state.

Running on Empty

In this edition of Afterburner, Bill Whittle spells out a compendium of the greatest failures of the Obama administration. He expresses cautious optimism that we’ll have a new president by the time he records his next Afterburner, but Whittle also warns Mitt Romney supporters to bear in mind the words of Han Solo, “Great, kid! Don’t get cocky.”

If the Shoe Fits

CMN breaks away from its coverage of Libya to drop the other shoe on Mitt Romney for his purchase of $400 gold-buckled Bluno Magli loafers. And these shoes don’t even carry the Anna Wintour seal of approval. H/T American Digest
