Morning Dump, August 10th

  • Linda McMahon files complaint against Chris Murphy for a private equity loan he got for a home. It won’t lead to legal troubles, but it will lead to some press trouble.
  • Obama edged Romney in fundraising: $114m to $111.6m. First time in a few months that has happened, though this is Romney’s highest fundraising month to date AND third straight $100m month. Convention months are easy for fundraising.
  • Senator Dianne Feinstein walks out of interview when challenged to debate her opponent, Autism activist Elizabeth Emken. Really unacceptable not to debate your opponent. Perhaps some good press for Emken
  • Rand Paul: expand the GOP tent and pick up Libertarians. YES PLEASE! Libertarians would help the party HUGELY in the Northeast (New Hampshire, Maine, Connecticut) and the West (Nevada, Colorado, Arizona, New Mexico).

Waking up on Wednesday, August 29th

So we wake up today, on Wednesday, and the world continue to turn. Good to note.

I’m gonna pack most of my usual posting’s today into one post to save myself time because I have an action-filled afternoon once again.

Dump

  • Juan Williams of Fox News calls Ann Romney a “corporate wife.” Must have missed her speech, because, to me, the wrong Romney is running. I have no idea what a corporate wife is, but it is not Ann Romney.
  • Condi Rice is working on a political comeback, but she does not anticipate a role in a Romney administration. Perhaps elected office in California? *Cough* run against Babs Boxer in 2016 *cough*
  • Clint Eastwood is heading to the RNC on Thursday. Surprise guest?
  • Thoughts and prayers go out to the people of New Orleans and the rest of Louisiana. I have friends in Baton Rouge and the suburbs of New Orleans.

Presidential Predictions – Wed, 8/29

  • No real news on this front. It continues to remain close with the majority of swing states in a dead heat. Last week’s prediction was: Romney 280, Obama 258. That will continue this week. Need to see polling post-both-conventions.
  • Gallup had Romney +2 before the convention. In their historical analysis, nearly every election cycle, the leader pre-conventions was the winner of the actual election. Just a thought.

And on a completely unrelated note, the first day of college football starts tomorrow!!!!!

Later tonight, look for my quick-thoughts on the Convention, Day 2 and tomorrow, videos and Senate predictions.
