Here's a story you'll appreciate LAJ. Well, maybe not, but it has a familiar picture.



The security officer had a [email protected] on the target that was firing and repeatedly requested back-up support from a Specter gunship, which is commonly used by U.S. Special Operations forces to provide support to Special Operations teams on the ground involved in intense firefights. The fighting at the CIA annex went on for more than four hours — enough time for any planes based in Sigonella Air base, just 480 miles away, to arrive. Fox News has also learned that two separate Tier One Special operations forces were told to wait, among them Delta Force operators.

11Fan,

Unskewed Polls: Great source of information, comfort food for the worried Conservatives? Did they run out of red paint while doing their map?

Here is what others say:

From The Business Insider:
Basically, what UnskewedPolls does is take a poll and look at the partisan percentage split that the poll reports from the random sample. This could be, for instance, a 33 percent Democrat, 28 percent Republican, and 39 percent independent breakdown.

Then, they somehow weight the data so that what comes out is what the sample would look like if the Democrat/Republican/Independent percentages were equal to the results found by Rasmussen Reports in the single month of August— 35.4 percent Republican, 34 percent Democrat, and 30.5 percent Independent.
The resulting number comes out overwhelmingly favorable for Mitt Romney.

From Freedom Outpost:

The site has only been functioning for days, not years. The site doesn’t have a track record at all. It has gotten significant traffic from conservative sites, such as TheGateWayPundit.com and WND.com in the past couple of days according to Alexa.
It’s also intimately tied to QStarNews.com which has a terrible internet rating according to Alexa.com. The problem is that the poll numbers given by unskewedpolls.com are not even close to any polling organization, including Fox News, Gallup, Rasmussen, or Pew.
There is no doubt in my mind that in the coming days unskewedpolls.com will be quoted a lot. The question is, do they do scientific polling or are they propaganda?
Nice try, however... Sometime, you might get it right, perhaps a day or two after November 6...

That is serious.

I hate to think what will come out after the election.

I cannot believe they did not use it to suppress fire.

Truer words could not be written, although I don't think we'll need to wait that long. The writing is already on the walls. Hard to see with those blinders on I would imagine.

Hello? Tap tap... is this thing on?

Nevertheless, what you apparently missed in your hasty response to chastise me was my earlier post where I said this.

Scott Rasmussen historically has nailed it. I rely on his polls exclusively. I find the others are typically slanted, although of late they still result in a similar finding.

Indeed Skipper. And I'll tell ya now, I'm not a sore winner.

As for what went wrong, what the hell do you think I've been posting about the last six months?

And don't be misled into thinking that map is my gospel. That's someone else's opinion. I just thought it was an interesting article.

As I suggested earlier, I'm inclined favor Scott Rasmussen's findings and I predict a Romney win. How closely it will match the map remains to be seen.

How can anyone even think about supporting Obama?! The man is a joke.
When he gives a speech its as if those listening think he is the messiah. He comes across as a preacher and essentially seems to want to destroy all that makes America special and unique. America needs to be careful or they will end up turning into the disaster that is modern Europe.

Romney is almost an economic genius with a proven business record. He comes across as a normal if rather wealthy guy and very intelligent.

This should be no contest at all.

If there was a fair and unbiased Press, it would be no contest.

As more and more information is released and/or exposed about the Steven's assassination and the attack on the US consulate in Benghazi, the worse it looks for the Obama Administration.

It turns out that there were two separate attacks in Benghazi that night and on through the next morning, seven hours apart. Both of these attacks were being watched live while they were taking place.

Repeated calls for assistance were made during those seven hours, all were turned down. That there may have not been enough time on the initial attack to reinforce the consulate, there was more than enough time to send reinforcements to prevent or stop the second attack on the Annex, where the two ex-Seals were killed.

The two former Seals that killed were members of a quick response team that was sent to Benghazi in response to the initial attack on the Consulate. They were ordered to remain at the airport. Two members of the quick response team, former Navy Seals Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods, disobeyed the orders to remain at the airport, but instead rode to the sound of the battle, so to speak, as Navy Seals and our other special operation forces such as Rangers, are apt to do.

This alone should cost Obama the Presidency.


I still for the life of me cannot figure out how in the hell Obama talked or forced Hillary into taking the fall for this.

Just saw a new report (not confirmed as of yet) that Hillary did in fact approve more security teams to respond to the attacks, but was over ruled by Obama. Now if this turns out to be confirmed as true, I cannot see how this can be kept under wrap by the mainstream media, NBC in particular.

Report: Hillary Asked For More Security in Benghazi, Obama Said No - Hillary Clinton - Fox Nation

You know that Bill Clinton must be one highly pissed off SOB over this.

No, he does, I was looking for change for $1,000.00

I don't think small TD.

Maybe that's why your hero is going down in flames. To him, and you apparently, it's bad to be successful.

Pity, one will always be small when they think they are.

Skipper,

Bush?

Fox News?

That's it? Nothing on the story itself? The fact that these guys were left to die?

Come on man.

That is their only response when faced with bad news for the Great One (PBUH), attack the messenger and bring up Bush.

That is wearing very, very thin with the American voters.

Fox has to be the one to bring this up, as ABC, CBS, CNN and NBC are keeping this whole incident under wraps. NBC for Christ's sake is still claiming that the entire incident was because of a "spontaneous demonstration" over a three month old video, that got out of control. Only totally brainwashed Obamatrons still believe that.
