Mitt Romney has a new ad running in Ohio

It must be effective as it has made the left is seething mad. Rachel Maddow went off the rails:

Late last week, Mitt Romney ran into a little trouble on one of his biggest vulnerabilities. Campaigning in Ohio, the Republican said he’d seen a story that Jeep may be moving “all production to China.” Romney wasn’t telling the truth, as Chrysler itself made clear.

Via Politico: “We arrived at the Oval Office for our 45-minute interview … on the morning of October 11th. … As we left the Oval Office, executive editor Eric Bates told Obama that he had asked his six-year-old if there was anything she wanted him to say to the president. … [S]he said, ‘Tell him:… Read more »

The third and final debate is tonight at 9pm EST. A few topics to consider in this open thread is what is missing from tonight’s topics:

So two-thirds of the debate will be about the Greater Middle East. Two-thirds. Schieffer has generously allowed that China and Tomorrowland the entire Pacific Rim should get fifteen minutes. Here are the following areas and topics that apparently won’t be discussed:

Final Debate and Waxing Nostalgic [Reader Post]

By 24 Comments 760 views

I have to hand it to Team Romney. I didn’t think they had a cohesive plan. The first debate fully illuminated the small steps they had taken behind the scenes to build momentum. While many on the right were giddy with the whipsaw results from the outcome of the first debate I would wager that few anticipated the size, velocity, and residual wave of positive sentiment for Romney.

Obama & Clarke On Libya: Just Shameful

By 47 Comments 1,803 views

Clarke, Clinton’s terrorism czar, put out an article a few days ago that set me off a bit:

The last of the presidential debates will focus on national security and will surely produce another round of sniping about what happened before, during and after the raid on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi,Libya. Voters, therefore, ought to think about this issue in context.

Insight On Obama From The Debate Sidelines [Reader Post]

By 27 Comments 831 views

The second debate between President Obama and Mitt Romney delivered few surprises, including the obviously planted questions as well as a moderator purposely helping the Democratic candidate.

Rewriting The Debate Rules, We Must Be Fair

By 14 Comments 771 views

If we continue to give Democrats extra time because they need to express their “important points,” we need to change the rules; otherwise, it looks suspicious to the casual observer expecting the debates to be fair and honest.

In the first presidential debate, Obama took advantage of an extra three minutes and fourteen-seconds. If we accrue that time in Super Bowl dollars, each second is extremely valuable. Biden was cut back slightly, the reason is obvious, he was only allowed an extra minute and twenty-two seconds and the whole Democrat Party was holding its breath during the excess time. In the second presidential debate, Obama required four minutes and eighteen-seconds to dance around the different questions.
