Voters Decide on President by Body Language: Romney Won the Presidency Last Night

Words don’t matter as much as body language when voters decide on the man they trust to lead the nation.  Despite all the policy debates, all the fact checking, all the pundits, we don’t weigh and balance and research, not most of us.  We don’t even use our forebrains.  We use the most primitive part […]

Obama Will Claim Romney Will Take Us to War in Tonight’s Debate

Print Email Text Size The Spectacle Blog By Aaron Goldstein on 10.22.12 @ 12:53PM Quin suggests that Mitt Romney should use the word peace “about 15 or 20 times” in tonight’s debate with President Obama. That advice might very well help Romney because I predict that a desperate Obama will claim that Romney will take us […]

Craig Silverman: Romney Laps Obama in Comedy

Print Email Text Size The Spectacle Blog By Ross Kaminsky on 10.19.12 @ 9:51PM My friend Craig Silverman, former Obama voter and now member of Colorado Jews for Romney (along with me and quite a few others, believe it or not), has an interesting take on the impact on Jewish voters of Romney’s excellently funny […]

Gallup: Romney Debate Win Is the Largest Ever Polled

Print Email Text Size The Spectacle Blog By Kyle Peterson on 10.8.12 @ 11:55AM The news continues to roll in. We know Mitt Romney won last week’s debate. We know millions of people watched.

Leave Romney Be

The other day I received my weekly missive from Wall Street Journal columnist and former Reagan speechwriter Peggy Noonan, in which she informed me and the world that “the Romney campaign has to get turned around.”  She added helpfully, “This week I called it incompetent, but only because I was being polite. I really meant […]

Free Barack: Elect Romney

It is increasingly obvious that Obama wants to get out of the White House, not just to take vacations, visit Letterman, and go golfing, but to be free of the  responsibilities of the office of President itself, and those horrid media types are doing everything in their power to make him stay where he is. […]

Sounding and Acting Like Reagan, Romney Has Them Terrified

I knew Ronald Reagan. Ronald Reagan was a friend of mine. And Mitt Romney is reminding me an awful lot of Ronald Reagan. The comments for which Romney is being so relentlessly and viciously scorned by Barack Obama and his merry band of media puppets sounds to me exactly like comments Ronald Reagan would have […]

Romney Blasts Obama Over Embassy Attacks

Print Email Text Size The Spectacle Blog By Aaron Goldstein on 9.12.12 @ 1:07PM This morning Ben Stein suggested the kind of speech that Mitt Romney should make in response to the Obama Administration’s behavior over yesterday’s attack on our diplomatic posts in Egypt and Libya. Late last night, Romney got off to a good start […]

In a Kindness Competition, Romney Wins over Obama by a Landslide

The highlights of the last day of the convention, for me, were the ordinary people who spoke of the impact of Mitt Romney in their lives.  I wish these speeches had been prime-time, and that every wavering voter could see them.  This is what kindness looks like.  This is the supposedly uncaring, greedy, rich bastard […]
