Where are the Trends? Who has the Advantage?

It resonates that truth is reason! The current trends and facts seem to contradict the mainstream media. Hugh Hewitt addresses in his lastest blog (see below), as does Rasmussen in his latest daily tracking poll.

The Threats Are Growing. The Economy Isn’t: Romney 2
Posted by: Hugh Hewitt at 10:07 AM

Rasmussen’s daily edged up 1 for Romney, for a 2 point overall lead among likely voters, and as Jay Cost notes, the real news avalanche is decisively against the president.

The threat of Islamist terror is growing. The threat from Iran is growing. The threat of increasing joblessness is growing. The threat to the dollar is growing. China and Russia - more growing threats. Now there is rioting in Indonesia.

And the media obsess on inside-the-campaign-baseball whether it is alleged drama about the Romney campaign’s Stuart Stevens or the president’s Svengali Valerie Jarrett.

Only in the increasingly bizarre world of Manhattan-Beltway elite media is the tale of two speeches at the GOP convention big news as the Middle East slides towards war in no small measure brought about by American weakness. (Here is the short form, btw: Romney advisor Stevens ordered up a speech from very smart guy Pete Wehner. Romney, per usual, decided to write his own, demonstrating again a seriousness that POTUS does not have as well as a talent that totally eludes the president.)

The polls have already turned in the wake of the atrocity and disasters last week. MSM remains a good ten days behind any real news curve, but the voters are not behind that curve. That’s the story: A failing, flailing president whose designated spokesperson for the weekend had to declare “We are not impotent.”

A Frightening Moment For Our Nation …

Let’s review things for a moment . . .

A fresh-faced optimistic Democratic nominee (and future winner of the Nobel Peace Prize) is swept into office after a surprise win in the lead-off Iowa caucuses …

As this new President takes office, the economic crisis and national recession intensifies …

An iconic American automobile giant, on the verge of bankruptcy, receives a federal bailout and is “saved” …

Energy costs and inflation soar to historic levels …

Middle East relationships become tense and the US Ambassador to an Islamic agitator nation is murdered by Jihadist Muslim terrorists

The Islamic world isn’t frightened by obvious US military superiority, for they know this President wants to be loved and leave a legacy as a peace-maker …

The Republican Nominee is accused of a “shoot from the hip”/”shoot first; aim later” approach to foreign policy …

Russia is on the rise and emboldened by America’s decreased standing and respect in the world …

Against all reason (but with the help of a complicit media), this incumbent President leads his Republican challenger, a former Governor of a liberal state, in post-convention/pre-debate Gallup polls by close to double digits …

Many strong Republicans are disheartened by their prospects of winning the White House, thereby seeing their great country sink further into decline and disrepute …

The year? The President?

… none other than 1980 and Jimmy Carter my friends (or the present with Obama if you prefer …).

A Sad Day for America! Where is our President?

Today America suffered a great loss following a day of sacred remembrance! Most critically, we suffered the tragic loss of life in Libya, and we mourn with those who lost their loved ones, Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three of his staff. We offer our condolences and prayers for solace to the family members of those who have suffered this difficult loss. Today America mourns!

Yesterday’s remembrance and today’s tragedy are reminders that we are in the midst of significant turmoil, tumult and commotion in the world. Even so, it is difficult to measure the anger and outrage so many feel when our freedoms and principles are threatened, and lives are lost by radical Islamic thuggery. The disrespect and irrationality of these immoral thugs is difficult to fathom and comprehend, especially when as Americans we value and treasure life and human dignity so significantly. Needless to say, this is a difficult time for the world, and for America. I am grateful for who we are and what we stand for - now if we just had a leader in our President that stood resolute for these same principles.

After waking to the headlines this morning and seeking for some measure and understanding, I reflected back to Condi Rice’s recent speech at the Republican Convention in Tampa. Therein she speaks of leadership and a wanting definition of where America stands. She further speaks of the global turmoil and challenges we have and continue to face, and the critical need for wisdom and leadership on the global stage. She points out that if America doesn’t lead, someone else will. Today we have witnessed the consequences of absent leadership in Washington. The Arab Spring, as noted by Governor Romney is turning into the Arab Winter.

Therefore, I simply ask the question, ‘Where is our President?‘ At a time that demands great leadership in our nation and on the world stage, Mr. Obama is absent! At a time when our outrage and condemnation should be expressed in no uncertain terms, Mr. Obama and the State Department gave utterance to understanding the radical Islamic outrage over derisive comments against Mohammed. Clearly they indicated that such isn’t an excuse, but to give utterance to offense is not leadership, it is capitulation. At a time when our friend and ally in the Middle East, Israel, is under serious threat and their Prime Minister seeks an audience with our President, he is too busy to meet and is unwilling to make it the needed priority it is! And yet, Mr. Obama has time to visit with David Letterman in lieu of the Prime Minister; he has time to campaign in Nevada and Colorado on the very day we have suffered such a great loss in Libya; where are you Mr. President? And, do you really care about what matters? Or, are you too interested in the power, the prestige and the celebrity of the Presidency and your re-election?
