According to Powell, he witnessed “the president get us out of one war, start to get us out of a second war and did not get us into any new wars.
And finally I think that the actions he has taken with respect to protecting us from terrorism have been very very solid.
And so, I think we ought to keep on the track that we are on.”

Think about it:
1. Got us out of the war in Iraq
2. Getting us out of the war in Afghanistan
3. NO NEW WARS

According to the good folks at Public Policy Polling — and why they asked this question, I never will know.
15 percent of registered Republicans in Ohio think Willard Romney deserves more credit for killing Osama bin Laden than does the president. Another 47 percent aren’t really sure who does.
29 percent of them give the credit to Romney while a WHOPPING 56 percent of them find it too difficult to answer the question of whether the credit should go to the guy who actually gave the order, or to the guy who forgot to mention the troops in his acceptance speech not long ago.
Happy 9/11, America!

Mitt Romney has had a tough couple of weeks on the campaign trail — and it shows in the latest Fox News poll. After a barrage of campaign ads, negative news coverage of his overseas trip and ongoing talk about his tax returns, Romney’s favorable rating and standing in the trial ballot have declined. As a result, President Obama has opened his biggest lead since Romney became the presumptive Republican nominee.
The president would take 49 PERCENT of the vote compared to Romney’s 40 PERCENT in a head-to-head matchup if the election were held today, the poll found.
Last month, Obama had a four percentage-point edge of 45 PERCENT to 41 PERCENT.

As Mitt Romney bombed in England, Bill O’Reilly held a chat with John Sununu, a Romney surrogate, about the Republican candidate’s dismal likeability ratings.
Not that they brought up any of his stunning gaffes that led the British press to characterize him as “worse than Sarah Palin.”
No, O’Reilly and Sununu kept their discussion to a recent poll that found:
Romney’s likeability ratings in the tank at THIRTY (30%)
President Obama’s at SIXTY (60%).
“Independent” (and fair and balanced, too) O’Reilly acknowledged that that’s a problem for Romney and asked Sununu what could be done.
(too late: once an ass-hole, ALWAYS an ass-hole!)

An anonymous former high-school classmate of Mitt Romney’s told ABC News on Thursday that many fellow students have “really negative memories” of the Republican presidential candidate, and that his behavior during those years was “like ‘Lord of the Flies.'”
The interview came on the heels of a Washington Post report that detailed Romney’s behavior as a student at the Cranbrook School, a prestigious institution in Bloomfield Hills, Mich. In the article’s most explosive revelation, multiple classmates of Romney’s recall how he led a group of students that forcibly cut the hair of John Lauber, a student who was thought to be gay.
Romney countered the allegations quickly, making a surprise appearance on Fox host Brian Kilmeade’s radio show Thursday morning.
“They talk about the fact that I played a lot of pranks in high school,” he said. “And they describe some that you just say to yourself, back in high school I just did some dumb things, and if anybody was hurt by that or offended by it, obviously I apologize.”
“I participated in a lot of hijinks and pranks during high school, and some might have gone too far, and for that, I apologize,” he added.
Later Thursday, Romney told Fox News’ Neil Cavuto that “I had no idea what that individual’s sexual orientation might be,” and that “Going back to the 1960s, that wasn’t something we all discussed or considered.”

Anyone notice? Romney is always saying stupid sh*t! what’s with that?
What are America’s old white racist exurban cretins on Medicare and Social Security upset about today?
Oh, the usual: Obama, liberals, gays, sex, black people, youth, hippies, the poor, the rich, Mexicans, “the hip hop,” Iran, exercise, unemployment, unemployment benefits, vegetables, a talented black woman with addiction problems such as Whitney Houston, organic farms, birth control, people having sexual intercourse in general, solar energy, Mormons, national parks, public transportation, Europe, NPR, Media Matters, the New York Times, CNN, MSNBC and Fox News.
WAIT WHAT IN THE ???
Yes, Fox News.
The wingnuts have spastically lurched from one invented outrage to the next with such shallow furor that they finally wound up enraged about the very teevee channel that tells them what to freak out about.
As a white, male, middle-aged conservative talk radio host from Virginia, John Fredericks is something close to the Platonic ideal of a Fox News fan. And until last year, he was one. But then Fox’s treatment of the Republican primary race — the presentation of Karl Rove as a political analyst despite his having “thrown in for Romney” and Sean Hannity’s clear ties to the Republican establishment — began to grate on him. So he changed the channel ….
“To tell you the truth, a lot of conservatives see Fox News as being somewhat skewed on certain issues,” said Patrick Brown, who runs Internet marketing for The Western Center for Journalism, a conservative nonprofit that features stories questioning the president’s eligibility for office. “We actually did a poll recently that said, ‘Is Fox News actually conservative, or has it moved left?’ And some 70 PERCENT of our readers thought it had moved left.”

Tucked amid the Stupor Bowl teevee commercials for naked chocolate candies, cheesy salt chips, war pornography, and the latest domestic water-beers was this one featuring old Clint Eastwood, the next Bat-Man, scouring stadium catacombs for the The Joker or maybe the Taco Bell.
“It’s halftime in America and our second half’s about to begin,” he says, to cringes everywhere.
But the ad’s main point is just “Hey let’s hope the Chrysler car company gets back on its feet.”
Sure, that sounds fine!
Unless you’re known anus Karl Rove, who is offended by Eastwood’s hope for the recovery of one of America’s large companies.
