Romney’s desperation to win Ohio is starting to leave a stench

By: Sunday October 28, 2012 4:09 pm

I know that being this is a Presidential election, we shouldn’t be shocked at anything we see. However, this new ad by Romney goes way beyond the pale. When I first saw it, I thought  “this has to be a parody.  No one can lie this brazenly.” But it is a real ad. And it’s [...]

Third astroturfed African-American group attempting to sabotage Obama’s support with black voters

By: Thursday October 25, 2012 7:52 am

As if by magic (wink, wink, nudge, nudge), there is yet a third group which seeks to exploit President Obama’s support of marriage equality in order to sabotage his support in the black community. This organization is called Pivot Point and has been running the following ad on BET: If you are keeping score, Pivot Point is the third [...]

‘Apology tour’ ad reveals Romney’s lack of core & Christian right leaders’ lack of integrity

By: Tuesday October 23, 2012 8:23 pm

The following ad is what you call brazen. It’s Romney accusing President Obama on going on an “apology tour” at the beginning of his presidency: This claim that President Obama went on an “apology tour” (i.e. went to foreign countries and apologized for the past actions of America) has been pushed almost as many times [...]

Barack Obama: Right man. Wrong color.

By: Monday October 15, 2012 7:56 am

This picture of a t-shirt worn by a Romney supporter taken at a recent Ohio campaign has taken the internet by storm, as well it should. A good friend of mine remarked that at least this man was honest about his feelings instead of hiding behind a euphemism and I wholeheartedly agree with this. Now [...]

Video reminds us of why we need to be voting in November

By: Saturday October 6, 2012 2:56 pm

I’m a firm believer of the concept of “preaching to the choir” because I believe that every now and then, the choir needs a reminder of what they stand for. And this video more than enough of a reminder:

‘Slut-shaming’ President Obama’s mother can make you a lot of money

By: Monday October 1, 2012 7:41 am

An excellent piece in The Daily Beast has caught my eye and raised my nerves because of the following passage: D’Souza argues that part of the reason Ann Dunham sent Obama to live with her parents in Hawaii was so she could pursue affairs with Indonesian men. “Ann’s sexual adventuring may seem a little surprising [...]

Fringe ‘black leader’ attacks Obama, Democratic Party

By: Wednesday September 26, 2012 7:35 am

Batten down the hatches. We have another wannabe black leader urging African-Americans to leave the Democratic Party. Not vote for Romney, mind you, but leave the party period. Bishop E.W. Jackson of S.T.A.N.D. (Staying True To America’s National Destiny) has launched a project called “Exodus Now,” which calls for a “mass exodus of Christians from [...]

Harry Jackson proves that exploiting gays and blacks is a lucrative business

By: Monday September 24, 2012 7:32 am

As we all know,  there has been a sad attempt to sabotage President Obama’s support in the African-American community because of his support of marriage equality. First, there was the Coalition of African-American Pastors, an group of pastors who was encouraging African-Americans to withhold their votes in the upcoming election. Not vote for Romney, mind [...]

Paul Ryan, other Republicans need to come clean about night of Obama’s inauguration

By: Monday September 10, 2012 8:00 am

In April, a book Do Not Ask What Good We Do: Inside the U.S. House of Representatives by Robert Draper was published. The book detailed the shenanigans of the House of Representatives after the 2010 election in which the Republican Party, with the help of the Tea Party Movement, retook the House of Representatives. However, [...]

New Obama campaign commercial is BRUTAL!

By: Saturday July 14, 2012 10:20 am

This ad by the Obama campaign against Romney is running in nine swing states(Colorado, Florida, Iowa, North Carolina, New Hampshire, Nevada, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Virginia) and is probably the most brutal thus far of this campaign season. It combines continuous attacks on Romney’s offshore accounts and his time at Bain Capital over a backdrop of [...]
