    *Scott Rasmussen rejects Chuck Todd’s ‘inaccurate’ interpretation of Fla. poll –

    (Election prognosticators are ‘either lying to you or deluding themselves,’ says pollster)

    In an appearance on Laura Ingraham’s radio show Friday, Rasmussen said the state is hardly “off the map,” especially given the timing of the poll, which was immediately after the Democratic National Convention but before this week’s turmoil in the Middle East.

    “There’s an accurate part and there’s an inaccurate part of the clip you just played,” he said. “If Mitt Romney loses Florida, it is over. He cannot win the presidency without Florida. He needs to win Ohio. Another very important state is Virginia. Those are keys and if any candidate loses all three of those, they’re going to lose.”

    “It is inaccurate to say Florida is off the map,” he continued. “The problem the president has in Florida starts with his health care law. Seniors are more opposed to that law than anybody else. It is a state that is very close in polling and fundamentally is leaning a little bit Republican. Don’t know where it is going to go. It’s clearly a toss-up.

    And I would say that Ohio is a little bit tougher for Romney right now. The president has done an awful lot of advertising up there. They’ve really been driving the message the auto industry is helping the president a bit there.”

    “If somebody tells you they know how this is going to turn out, they’re either lying to you or deluding themselves,” said Rasmussen. “It is too close to call. Both campaigns have weaknesses.”

    @CoffeeSteve :)

    If I think too much about the state of affairs at home and abroad, I am saddened. We are in a mess, economically and socially. I’ve been reading posts here for awhile, and there’s been a few that put a smile on my face. I baited by replicating one of those posts for a chuckle.

    I’ve only posted once here a long time ago….almost a year ago with another silly name. It is a serious situation we are in, and it is saddening.

    coffee Steve——–thoughts on the QE3 and the downgrade?

    Print money,,,,,Inflation

    Its even worse this time, the Fed is buying bonds, and has stated they will not stop putting 40 Billion a month until the economy and un-employment gets better. Now I wonder how Bond buying is suppose to intice businesses into hiring?

    He isn’t kidding anyone, they are trying to shore up the housing market by assuring the banks the bonds will remain strong, good luck with that.

    The expert at my trading site had this quote when the Fed announced and I quote

    “What The Hell Are They Doing? This is stupid.” Look for a lower Market by Monday as they get all the details and see just who will benefit from this QE3.

    And Doug? I don’t even want to think about the level of Inflation after all these QE’s. It scares Coffee Steve

  • PoodlePower

    Well, I got my fill of chuckles. Time to head in for the night shift. Good night all.

    @ Jeff, poodle power, Wanda, joe

    And what would that silly name a year ago be?

  • larry kreinbrink

    As a lifelong democrat, Enough is Enough!!! Obama must go! Perhaps he and C Matthews can find an island and try to figure out who to blame next!! I voted for President Obama, and for that reason, I’m entitled to my two cents worth. He will lose, and despite what C Matthews thinks, He has brought it upon himself! You have no idea how many of my political friends have thrown in the towel!! He has become the most divisive President in my lifetime!! He had no reason to go the direction he has. The far left destroyed a fine man! How SAD!

    *MSNBC Political Analyst Blames America for ‘Fomenting’ Muslim Hostility: ‘We’re Horrible Too’

    MSNBC political analyst and Georgetown University professor Michael Eric Dyson seemingly blamed America, at least in part, for the ongoing chaos in the Middle East, saying “we are able to point the finger at how horrible it is” but “we’re horrible too“ because the United States has ”fomented” hostility towards Muslims.

    “We’ve quietly fueled and fomented the kind of unnecessary hostility towards Muslims,” he said, adding “We ought to take a mirror and look at ourselves.”

    Coffee Steve $40 billion a mouth Equals $480 billion a year.SS is $571 billion a year. We need to cut SS so more money can go to Wall street. This goes straight to the stock market.It will go up , for a while.

    (this was Jeff. See the writing style)
    Looks like Jeff is still the “king of the sockpuppets.” Still throwing your “bs” around Jeff? I stopped reading this site a few months ago because of people like “Jeff” and nothing has changed. Jeff ,do you still have your Bentley,still hanging out with Larry King, still have your home in Bev Hills & Palm Springs ,do you still claim to be a OWS’er and last but not lease my favorite Jeffie claim “I’m sitting here in a coffee shop watching the sun raise over Palm Springs” when it was 3:30 am on the west coast at the time he posted.
    Oh I all most forgot about the olympic size salt water pool in Palm Springs ,I’m guessing you still have that.

    Doug Z,
    Jeff is a joke! 98% of what he post (when he’s not c/p) is a fairly tale.

  • Coffee Steve

    @Doug Z

    I’m not sure, But Fitch may not wait till November to downgrade us, they are a little upset with this QE. And just read a report from my tradind site that said basiclly that Gas prices are now taking money away from the GDP and the report said no lower Gas prices till at least January?

    In Fact they think Gas could hit an average of $4.09 nationwide by Late October.

    In terms of Christians going to extremes. How about the ones that kill abrtion doctors? How about those ones that think God Hates (derogatory words for gay males) that feel the need to spread their message wherever they can? That is an example of religious extremists and how they are everywhere



    As I have agreed in the past you are right, there are nuts in all religions. The difference is in the case of the abtn clinic nobody on the left cares what they did to offend the nut with the bomb/gun.
