Tuesday: a traveling day for BZ

Today — as incongruent as it may seem — my wife and I are traveling from the Mendocino coast back to my aerie in the Sierra Nevada Mountains.

Because I will be occupied by driving, I won’t be able to blog about the election today, until perhaps much later after I get home.

In the meantime, I have but this to submit:

A photo from a point somewhere within my general mountain locale.

Couldn’t quite tell you where this may be.  Ahem.

But it certainly represents my true feelings today, Obama Removal Day.




Obama Ends Campaign in Half-Empty Arena

From Breitbart.com:

President Obama’s big rally tonight (Monday night – BZ) turned out to be just like his first, opening salvo of the 2012 campaign: a half-empty arena in Ohio. According to RealClearPolitics’ Scott Conroy, there were “empty seats scattered around the upper-level of Nationwide Arena … Four years ago, after all, Obama was easily filling venues larger than that …” The event even featured Bruce Springsteen and Jay-Z, and Obama still couldn’t fill it out.

This photograph immediately comes to my mind:

Ladies and gentlemen, think of it, the ramifications of it all:

– Even with the White House Bully Pulpit
– Even with the Demorats controlling the Senate
– Even with the might of the entire DEM/MSM behind him
– Even with the sound of his voice on TV and radio literally every day
– Even with the guilt of Caucasoids nationally

Mr Obama is still not walking away with the race.

Against Mitt Romney, for God’s sake!

Tomorrow: there’s a surprise in every package.




The Ryan-Biden debate, observed:

This post will be fluctuous and updated in something in terms of real time, on Thursday.

I will be monitoring the debate via livestream and updating when applicable.

Live-streaming here.

Mr Biden seems to think that a strategy is to smile when Paul Ryan is replying.

A smile to a fact is not a strategy.

On the other hand Martha Radditz is favoring Biden.

And Ryan is NOT being aggressive — as Romney was aggressive.

Biden continues to smile as if Ryan is an imbecile.

I suspect it is playing.

Ryan drank water.  Biden drank nothing.  A minor point but significant to casual viewers.

Bad: just Biden was seen as interruptive.

Ryan is too deferential to Joe Biden.

Ryan needs to STEP UP and verbally SQUASH Joe Biden, to run roughshod over him.  He is entirely too deferential yet.

Biden got too many “last answers.”  UNanswered by Paul Ryan.

Biden is not coming out as an imbecile.  Assuaged by Radditz.

Biden continues to refer to Ryan as “my friend.”

So far, Romney has impressed me more than Ryan in this venue.  Ryan has been, then, like Obama, too entirely conciliatory.

I am concerned that Ryan is much more quiet than Romney.

Ryan was entirely TOO QUIET and TOO DEFERENTIAL.

Ryan didn’t TAKE CHARGE and make the debate over the Benghazi embassy!

So far Biden took charge and didn’t let up and wasn’t allowed, via Raddatz, to allow anything other than that.

Not ONE MENTION of Christopher Stevens, or his death or that of three other SEALs.

Ryan informs on his Catholic faith.  And how it informs his belief on abortion.

Biden tried to make things as Romney vs Ryan.

Too much derisive sneering on the part of Joe Biden.

Factually, a slight nod to Ryan.

A lesser nod to Joe Biden.

A + to Joe Biden.

A – to Paul Ryan.

First impressions.




Less than 3 hours to the Ryan – Biden debate

And frankly, I can’t wait.

In preparation for the debate, Joe Biden washes his Trans Am.

Any predictions?  I have one:

I think Biden is going to attempt to play “hard-ball” with Mr Ryan and ask the questions that people “wanted Obama to.”  I see Biden thinking of himself as the White Knight riding up in order to cleanse the dark arena of its Conservative Scourge.  He will be the Savior of the Leftists, come to the aid of Mr Obama with his quick wit, acerbic tongue and witty repartee.

My thought is borne out by this LA Times article.

I suspect Biden will attempt to make his attempt for the proverbial jugular.  Demorats secretly say their entire hopes rest on Biden.  That in itself is rather shocking.

However: if he decides to go there, I’m suspecting that Ryan will decapitate Mr Biden and simply watch the exsanguination.

As will I.

This, if anything, will be highly entertaining.

Can Paul Ryan continue the momentum, or will Joe Biden somehow shift that momentum?
