Where’s “O’Baldo?” Not in New Orleans

Correction: Obama is NOT in Ohio today, but in Texas at Ft. Bliss commemorating the 2-year withdrawal of troops from Iraq. 

“His record is a substantive record when it comes to the profound commitment and decision to end the war in Iraq and bring our troops home. And his record is substantial when it comes to supporting our veterans,” White House press secretary Jay Carney said Thursday of the trip.

We all know by now the story of Yahoo’s firing of David Chalian after a “hot mike” moment when he accused the GOP of carrying on with their convention while “black people are drowning” during Hurricane Isaac.

The GOP did the right thing in delaying and toning down the convention in deference to American citizens who were suffering.

After a rousing acceptance speech last night by Governor Mitt Romney, which was viewed favorably by most except MSNBC who naturally pulled it apart, Governor Romney took off for New Orleans to lend moral support to the victims of the hurricane.

But where is Obama, our Commander-in-Chief who should be visiting the area and also lending moral support?

Not surprising, but Obama AND Biden are on their way to Ohio AGAIN to campaign. Obama’s place of landing is unknown to this writer and she doesn’t care, but Biden is headed to Lordstown, the site of a GM plant.

Even though MSNBC complained after last night “we still don’t know much about Romney” his visit to New Orleans tells us what a presidency under Romney would look like: one with leadership and the ability to perceive where priorities lie.

Obama didn’t pay a visit to Virginia last year after Hurricane Irene. But after all, it’s a “red” state. And so is Louisiana.

Chalian should now be asking Obama “how can you be campaigning while black people are drowning?”

  1. Just saw a tweet saying Obama was going to swing by New Orleans on Monday on his way to the DNC convention. Too late, he is leading from behind. Romney has his priorities straight, the people and country are first. Campaigning is first with Obama.
    Obama the empty suit, the empty chair; how about empty closet and empty White House?!

  2. We still don’t know much about Romney? No, you freaking ignoramuses, you don’t. After a week’s seminar at the RNC on who Romney is, where he came from, and what he has done, the rest of us know. Quite a bit about Romney. But you idiots don’t. And that ‘s just a very small percentile of the things you don’t know, and never will know. You must be very proud of all these idiots at MSNBC, Brokaw. Well are ya, punk?

    • I watched for about 10 minutes and couldn’t take it. Maddow and Chrissy were complaining Romney didn’t lay out his tax plan, budget plan, foreign policy plan etc., etc., etc. IT’S AN ACCEPTANCE SPEECH, NOT SOTU, MSNBC. But we will be seeing a SOTU speech from Romney, count on it.

  3. Talk about pitching like a gurl, Obama gave Mitt a softball, underhanded, and he hit it out the park. Obama should have been on the ground in Louisiana while the convention was going on. Now Mitt and Ryan will be on the ground everywhere during the Dem trainwreck in Charlotte.

  4. Riddle me this, BatFans: Newsmax has a story about military voting being…very low this year! Requests for absentee ballots by the military are “set to hit an all-time low.”

    An excerpt:

    “The report shows that in Ohio, one of the crucially important states,
    only 3.3 percent — 1,806 out of 53,963 — eligible military voters have
    requested ballots.

    Other swing states are even worse, Virginia requests stand at just 1.4 percent and North Carolina’s rate is 1.7 percent.

    Even Florida, which has the highest percentage of requests among nine states surveyed, can only muster a 15.7 percent rate.”

    Important: Do You Support Pres. Obama’s Re-Election? Vote Here Now!

    Any ideas? The information comes from The Military Voter Participation Project. It is hard to believe with the (seeming?) UNpopularity of MAObama among the military that they will not be pumped to boot him out.

    • That is interesting, disturbing too. I don’t have a ready answer. Perhaps the number of troops deployed overseas is the lowest, by far, since 2000, so that they are at their home bases? Perhaps, under the radar, the Obamanistas have implemented some regulation that makes it harder or more bothersome to request an absentee ballot for military members? Perhaps there is some reason to think that ballots cast will be less secret than one might hope, and military members have reason to believe there will be reprisals for voting absentee and not for His Majesty?

      One thing I can tell you, although it’s anecdotal. From my informal contacts with current military members, His Majesty is loathed mightily.

      • Yes, I have also heard (e.g. an AF colonel) that MAObama is extremely distrusted. The article toward the end states that a majority of military ballots were not counted in previous elections: “In 2007, the US Election Assistance Commission reported that more than
        70 percent of military ballots in 2006 election were not counted. In
        2008, thousands of ballots arrived late, were never sent or simply never
        arrived.

        Maybe they think it just is not worth their time?

    • Little off topic, but this appears to be the fault of DOD. Not surprising.

      And a Clinton judge in Columbus yesterday tossed out an Ohio law in a suit by OFA that gives military 3 extra days.

      https://www.businessweek.com/news/2012-08-31/ohio-early-voting-days-must-be-equal-for-all-u-dot-s-dot-judge-rules

      And contrary to what all the big blogs were saying, the suit DID NOT ((I read it) seek to take away the 3 extra days the military has, but to give those 3 extra days to all. And that is what the judge did. Husted said he will appeal.

      From the skinny I’ve heard in the last couple of days Husted is planning on sending out absentee ballots to all registered voters in Ohio. I think it’s a huge mistake. Why even have an election day?
