Climate Change – Obama warned his supporters at a Miami rally about the threat of global warming and vowed that more money to subsidize green energy firms would prevent it.
Obama Campaign – There was a shooting incident at the Obama’s Denver campaign office. I really do not know what is wrong is people, fortunately no one was hurt.
Big Bird - A demonstration is planned for November 3 to save Big Bird at the National Mall in Washington, D.C., three days before the general election.
Jesse Jackson Jr. – It has been a tough year for the representative who is now being investigated for using campaign contributions to fix up his house. Jackson has been suffering from medical depression.
Campaign - Mitt Romney's campaign and its Republican allies outspend the president's campaign and allied Democratic groups by more than $18 million on the airwaves just this past week, according to data provided by a Democratic source. Republican groups withheld resources until the last few weeks of the campaign.
Libya - The State Department authorized the U.S. Embassy in Vienna to purchase a $108,000 electric-vehicle charging station for the embassy motor pool's new Chevrolet Volts, but had no money for extra security in Libya. In fact, Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) says the State Department is sitting on $2.2 billion that should be spent on upgrading security at U.S. embassies and consulates worldwide, but the Obama administration will not spend the funds. It seems that the Obama campaign and administration are throwing Hilary Clinton and the State Department under the bus for the deadly attack. Clinton seems to be taking one for the team. At least one person in this administration wants to be held accountable. Other news has surfaced that the Libyan embassy has been attacked twice previously in April and June.
Romney – The campaign and debate has lifted his favorability ratings from under water for the first time in 6 months. In fact, it is the first time Romney’s favorable ratings are higher than Obama’s according to the Realclearpolitics average. Romney had to overcome the onslaught of negative ads over the summer that portrayed him as a tax felon, murderer, and a guy who runs manufacturing sweat shops overseas. Also, the Romney campaign raised 170 million dollars in September, only 11 million less than Obama.
Social Security – Inflationary increases in social security benefits next year will be the lowest in nearly 3 decades.
Population – Bill Maher said "The planet is too crowded and we need to promote death.” This is a common philosophy among many educated liberals that we need population control to save the earth. Unfortunately, we need population growth to pay for the liberal entitlement Ponzi scheme created by many countries around the globe.
Waste – Senator Coburn has published his yearly government waste book.
Second Presidential Debate – A CNN poll had the president winning 46-39, but Romney won on point for the economy, taxes, debt, answering the question whereas the President won narrowly on foreign policy and being aggressive. I saw it as a draw basically because Romney missed opportunities but Obama never spelled out what he would do in the next term.
