By Dave Andrusko http://twitter.com/daveha “After spending the summer defining and discrediting Romney in key states and nationally, the Obama campaign now finds itself facing an opponent who, in just 90 minutes, erased much of the image that David Axelrod and David Plouffe created in a series of negative ads over the summer.”               —  Stuart …

Reflections on Debate #3

By Dave Andrusko http://twitter.com/daveha Two images jumped into my mind as I watched last night’s third and final presidential debate between pro-life Mitt Romney and pro-abortion President Barack Obama. The President clearly was channeling his inner Joe Biden: snide, dismissive, condescending only minus the smiles (which Biden flashed in all the wrong places). That’s number …

Bob Schieffer and tonight’s final presidential debate

By Dave Andrusko http://twitter.com/daveha “Partisan feelings and emotions reach thermonuclear temperatures in these debates and if your candidate isn’t doing well, blame the umpire,” said Tom Brokaw, the veteran “NBC Nightly News” anchor and moderator of the 2008 town hall debate. “Bob’s richly deserved reputation for fairness, intelligence and professionalism will serve him well, but …

Obama Campaign continues to distort Gov. Romney’s position on abortion; NRLC explains how and why

By Dave Andrusko On Thursday, NRL News Today wrote about an egregiously dishonest ad run by the Obama campaign that carefully parsed an answer given by Mitt Romney to suggest that Gov.
