BREAKING: President Obama has announced Gun Control Plan. He is talking about Grace a small child who died in CT. Obama said let do the right thing. I say yes lets do the right thing and arm our teachers. Taken our guns will never stop a mad man. He has no right to do this. This will bring us closer to a civil war.
Sen. Kelly Ayotte was on “Fox News Sunday” yesterday.
She wants to have a “thoughtful discussion” about gun violence, particularly about our mental health system:
My background before serving in the Senate, I was a homicide prosecutor. So I do come at it from a perspective that taking away the rights of law abiding citizens was not going to stop a deranged individual or a criminal.
She’s “deeply troubled” by Chuck Hagel’s nomination to be defense secretary:
[O]ne of the greatest threats that we face is Iran acquiring a nuclear weapon, some of his prior statements seem to suggest that … he thinks we can contain Iran. … [W]hat message are we sending to Iran, what message are we sending to Israel?
She’s “concerned” about the president’s approach to foreign policy:
And now, you have al Qaeda coming — we have al Qaeda activity in Iraq, and as well as Iran playing a greater role. We are seeing the same thing in Afghanistan, right now…. And, the worry is, is that a light footprint approach can leave us in a situation where the Taliban come back in power, where al Qaeda is again given a launching pad to commit attacks against our country.
Huffington Post’s Jason Linkins was not impressed:
Ayotte is concerned and concerned and concerned. I am concerned that she does not own a thesaurus. Anyway, in case you haven’t figured out, she’s all booga-foo over Benghazi. She’s mad that Obama brought troops home from Iraq, and couldn’t change the Status of Forces Agreement that Bush agreed to and which mapped out our withdrawal. Ayotte is one of maybe a million people who have come on the Sunday shows over the past five years, complaining about this, failing to understand that the Status of Forces Agreement could only be changed with the permission of the Iraqi government — we asked for it, they declined to give it, and that’s that. Don’t like it? Ask for President Bush’s email address, and send him all the poop emoji you can type.
Also, Ayotte wants to broaden our footprint to include places like Iran, and be prepared to launch military strikes against the Iranians to forestall them getting a nuke, right? Well, there is not an unlimited supply of soldiers, I’m afraid, and the ones we have are still overstretched and overdeployed. So if you really, really want to see the U.S. military attacking Iran to save the world, then you can bloody well be glad that some of the people who are now available to do it aren’t bogged down in Baghdad right now.
Jack Kimball’s Granite State Patriots Liberty PAC publicizes the call by Tea Party Nation founder Judson Phillips to steal the election from President Obama:
According to the 12th Amendment, for the Electoral College to be able to select the president, it must have a quorum of two-thirds of the states voting. If enough states refuse to participate, the Electoral College will not have a quorum. If the Electoral College does not have a quorum … responsibility for selecting the president and vice president devolves to the Congress.
Mitt Romney carried 24 states. We need to have conservative activists from all over the nation contact the electors, the Republican Party and the secretary of state in all of these states and tell them not to participate in the Electoral College when it meets on Dec. 17.
If we can get 17 of those states (just over one-third) to refuse to participate, the Electoral College will have no quorum. Then, as the Constitution directs, the election goes to the House of Representatives.
“That is how we can still pull this election out and make Mitt Romney president in January, Phillips declares. “This is our last chance.” Phillips calls on tea party, liberty and patriotic groups to spread the word. Kimball, the former state GOP chair, is apparently happy to oblige.
75% of New Hampshire voters in this year’s presidential election named the economy or the federal budget deficit as the most important issue facing the country. Exit polls indicate Mitt Romney won the majority of those voters by a wide 54% to 46% margin.
So how did President Obama win the state by almost six points? Health care! 18% of voters in the Granite State named health care as the most important problem facing the country. Obama won the votes from that group by a whopping 84% to 16% margin, providing the votes to overcome Romney’s advantage on the economy and the deficit.

|Illegal in most cases||18%||17%||82%|

President Obama leads Mitt Romney 50% to 46% in the final New England College poll of New Hampshire likely voters. Obama had a five point lead in last week’s NEC survey.
“For the third poll in a row President Obama is showing strength in New Hampshire,” said Ben Tafoya, NEC Poll director. “He must be considered the favorite, by a small margin, to carry the state on Tuesday.”
Democrat Maggie Hassan has a two point lead over Republican Ovide Lamontagne, 47% to 45%. 7% are still undecided. Men prefer Lamontagne by a 49% to 42% margin. Hassan leads among women 53% to 41%.
The results are based on automated calls using landlines and cellphones to 687 likely voters for president with a +/- 3.7% margin of error and 666 likely voters for governor with a +/- 4.1% margin of error. The survey was conducted on November 3-4, 2012.

President Obama leads Mitt Romney 50% to 48% in the final New Hampshire poll of the 2012 election cycle from Public Policy Polling.

Once again, a WMUR/Granite State Poll purports to indicate a major swing in New Hampshire’s presidential contest. Today’s survey has the race between President Obama and Mitt Romney tied at 47% each (48% each with “leaners”). The previous Granite State Poll, on October 22, had Obama leading 51% to 42%.
In a result more consistent with most other pollsters, Democrat Maggie Hassan leads Republican Ovide Lamontagne by five points, 45% to 40%. 13% are still undecided. When undecided voters are asked to identify which candidate they are leaning towards supporting, Hassan leads 47% to 42%, with 8% undecided.
The Granite State Poll is sponsored by WMUR-TV and conducted by the University of New Hampshire Survey Center. The results are based on telephone interviews of 502 likely voters with a margin of error of +/- 4.4%. The survey was conducted on October 31 and November 1-2, 2012 on landline and cellular telephones.
A new survey from Gravis Marketing has President Obama and Mitt Romney in a virtual tie in the Granite State, with Obama leading 50% to 49%.
* This result appears to indicate a tighter race than other recent surveys, but Nate Silver notes, “surveys from Gravis Marketing have been very strongly Republican-leaning this cycle — by about four percentage points relative to the consensus.” Today’s other New Hampshire poll — from New England College — has Obama up by five points.
The results are based on an automated survey of 497 likely voters on November 1, 2012. The survey has a +/-4.3% margin of error.
Susan B. Anthony List, the hardline anti-abortion advocacy group, is blanketing New Hampshire residents with a graphic phone message attacking President Obama for his pro-choice policies.
I’m Jill Stanek, a Chicago nurse. I was outraged when I discovered that babies who were born alive because of botched abortions were being left to die. I worked to protect these babies with the Infant Born Alive Act in the Illinois legislature, but state Sen. Barack Obama fought against the bill and voted against it four times. Barack Obama is the most extreme pro-abortion president we’ve ever had. That’s why this Chicagoan is voting for life and against Barack Obama. I hope you will too. This message was paid for by the Susan B. Anthony List. Not authorized by any candidate or candidate’s committees. sba-list.org.
