Nate Silver’s Flawed Model

The New York Times number cruncher lets his partisanship show.

By Josh Jordan

“Oh, people can come up with statistics to prove anything, Kent. Fourteen percent of people know that.” — Homer Simpson.

In the days before the first debate in Denver, President Obama held more than a four-point lead in the Real Clear Politics average, and Romney had been left for dead by most of the media. Then the debate came, and overnight Romney seemingly rid himself of the negatives that had been tacked on to him by over $100 million dollars in negative advertising. Now here we are a few weeks later with a dead heat in nationwide polls

As worry built up among Democrats that Romney had tied the race nationally and had clear momentum heading into the final stretch, they began attaching their hopes to what BuzzFeed’s Ben Smith called “the bulwark against all-out Dem panic” — Nate Silver.

Silver gained fame by correctly predicting 49 of 50 states Scissors-32x32.pnghttp://www.nationalr...del-josh-jordan

A twenty-one year old young man who lives in the next town over from us( it's a college town) was beaten up and taken to the hospital by ambulance for having a Romney sign in his yard. He woke up in the middle of the night and heard a noise in his yard. He caught 2 guys about his age stealing the sign. He asked them to bring it back. They started coming back and he thought they were going to return the sign and that would be that. Instead they came back and both knocked him to the ground and started to pummel him. A neighbor called the police and fortunately they arrived almost immediately because he said they had his airway blocked and he couldn't breathe until the cops arrived. He has only two blacks eyes and bruises and was held a few hours for observation because they thought he might have a concussion. It could have been much worse. Coincidently this young man is the son of our State Senator, but it is not believed the two guys knew this. They only were saying profane things about Romney as they beat him up. Sad state of what freedom of speech for our side has come to in this day and age.

Do Something About It!

 

This morning, Michael played one of his best rants from 2010 just before the midterm elections.

 

He wanted you to hear it again to encourage you to DO SOMETHING about your anger at Obama and the democrats with your vote and your voice.

 

Listen

It's on Drudge now too.

 

Added: It's awful that people are calling in to local talk radio to say that they are concerned now about putting Romney signs in their yards. What a world!

The Debate Dogs That Didn’t Bark

 

 

By: Dan McLaughlin (Diary) | October 23rd, 2012 at 11:14 AM

 

 

obama.bo_.dog_.jpg

The debates are over. It’s worth taking a look at what they didn’t cover, which is sometimes as telling as what was said. In 2000 – as I noted in my first widely-read blog post a decade ago, and as Romney noted last night – the subject of terrorism was not even raised, although it would come to dominate Bush’s tenure in office. Some things got less play than you might expect; perhaps the single biggest surprise of last night was that nobody mentioned Benjamin Netanyahu by name, but there was plenty of discussion of Israel (if surprisingly little on the “peace process”). Others got downplayed for obvious reasons; there was discussion of Obamacare at the first debate in particular, but little direct controversy on the individual mandate, perhaps unsurprisingly given Romney’s record.

But here’s a list of the issues that didn’t get discussed at all in any of the debates, in no particular order:Scissors-32x32.png

Don't worry about Obama downsizing the Navy. Our windmills and high unemployment rate will surely scare the enemy off.

The Adoration Bubble…Whatever Obama says, hilarity ensues.

Rich Lowry @ NRO:

All of President Barack Obama’s campaign rallies could be summed up in one sentence, “The president spoke, and hilarity ensued.”

The president doesn’t just make his fans faint, he cracks them up with a reliability that Groucho Marx or Johnny Carson might envy. The president won the Nobel Peace Prize when he really deserved to nose out Robin Williams for recognition as a “Stand-Up Icon” at the Comedy Awards.

Here is a part of a transcript of a fairly typical Obama event, at the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium in San Francisco a few days after the first debate. He was talking about Mitt Romney and taxes:

“So a few weeks ago, you can start seeing he’s figuring out, well, this isn’t maybe selling that well. (Laughter.) And then, a few nights ago — (laughter) — suddenly a guy pretending to be Mitt Romney Scissors-32x32.pnghttp://floppingaces.net/most_wanted/the-adoration-bubble-whatever-obama-says-hilarity-ensues/

Professional, Unbiased Journalism

 

October 23, 2012 | Filed under 2012 Presidential Race,Media | Posted by Dan Karipides

This video is being linked everywhere but it is such a short yet perfect example of media bias in action I just had to post it. Watch at 0:29 for the reaction of the media pundits after the focus group votes 6-2 in favor of Romney after the last debate.

Chris Matthews: 'Racial hatred' drives support for Romney on right

 

 

Liberal pundit Chris Matthews explained Mitt Romney's support among conservatives, despite the candidate shifting toward the center on a number of issues, as a product of "racial hatred."

Speaking after Thursday night's debate on MSNBC, Matthews accused Romney of "pulling back" from many of the foreign policy positions he had taken during the primary. When host Rachel Maddow wondered why Romney might be "reversing himself" from his stated positions during the primary and whether that could dampen his support among his conservative base, Matthews dismissed such a possibility.
