The best question at the second presidential debate came from Michael Jones, an African-American who said: "Mr. President, I voted for you in 2008. What have you done or accomplished to earn my vote in 2012? I'm not that optimistic, as I was in 2008. Most things I need for everyday living are very expensive."

To which Obama said: "Are you my half-brother?" Actually, all Obama could say was that he had ended the war in Iraq (while pointlessly escalating the war in Afghanistan) and that Osama bin Laden is dead (and so is our ambassador). Both of which must be a great comfort to Mr. Jones as he tries to pay his bills every month.

When you go to your doctor or dentist's office in January, there won't be a copy of the latest Newsweek waiting for you in the reception area.

On Thursday, the long-embattled periodical announced that its December 31 edition will be the last it prints:

Comedian D.L. Hughley channeled singer Kanye West Wednesday to take a cheap shot at Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney.

Appearing on MSNBC’s The Last Word, Hughley said of the former Massachusetts governor, “I’m not saying that he’s a gold digger, but he definitely ain’t messing with no broke - you know how it goes” (video follows with transcript and commentary):

A not so undecided “undecided voter.” At 10:12 AM EDT Wednesday on CNN, faux “undecided voter” Susan Katz, who had asked Mitt Romney at the debate the night before how he’s different from George W. Bush, told Carol Costello she voted for Barack Obama in 2008 and plans to do so again this year because “I saw in President Obama someone who has ripened with time who deserves another four years to see his vision through.” (“Ripened”?)

A little more than eight hours later, NBC’s Andrea Mitchell, on Nightly News, looked at debate reaction from “undecided voters chosen to ask questions” who “were not entirely happy with what they heard,” starting with Susan Katz whom Mitchell showcased trashing Romney for liking “to be in charge,” as if that’s a bad thing for a President.

Last Friday, the Obama campaign released a Mitt Romney attack ad that deceptively edited a September 23 broadcast of CBS's 60 Minutes.

Take a look at the ad side by side with what Romney actually told Scott Pelley (video follows with transcript and commentary):

Ex-Barack Obama Administration $82 Billion Auto Bailout Czar Steve Rattner has a bit of a problem telling the truth.

What Rattner does not have is a problem with the Jurassic Press Media calling him on his serial flights of factual fancy.

Today's starter topic: In an essay published in the Wall Street Journal, former senator Phil Gramm and Michael Solon wonder if the unusually large amount of money spent on the welfare state by President Obama is what accounts for his ability to have any chance at all in the coming election. Historically speaking, presidents in office under economic conditions similar to the current ones have invariably lost.

On Wednesday's CBS Evening News, correspondent Jan Crawford devoted a full story to President Obama's deceptive claim that he called the Benghazi attack an "act of terror" early on, as she recounted the administration's initial reluctance to call it a terrorist attack. The CBS correspondent also implicated debate moderator and CNN anchor Candy Crowley in bolstering Obama's distortion.

After showing a clip of Obama and Romney clashing over whether Obama had used the words "act of terror" early on, Crawford showed a clip of what the President said the day after the Benghazi attack, but then exposed Obama's revisionism:

At the Daily Kos, they're feeling cocky after the last two debates, insisting the Dems won both. "LeftHandedMan" wrote "Obama got Romney laughed at. F---ing laughed at. Taking it to them is better. Taking it to Movement Conservatism itself would be best." He insisted it should be sitting on the ash heap of history with communism.

He wrote of a ridiculously wimpy news media and Democrat establishment:  "Sadly, the Movement Conservative Right, free of having to deal with such troublesome matters as 'facts' and 'math', and aided by a methodically gelded traditional news media, has also benefitted from the Democratic Party being far too nice for its own good."

With just a fortnight until Halloween, Chris Matthews thinks he has just the story to scare the bejesus out of his viewers: Corporate executives sharing with their employees via email why they think a vote for Mitt Romney is better for the company's business.

I kid you not. Matthews attempted to blow a few such incidents into a grand scandal of "voter suppression" proportions on his October 17 program. Here's how Matthews introduced the segment:

Liberal MSNBC anchor Chris Matthews on Wednesday hinted that Mitt Romney's confrontational attitude during the debates might have a sinister undertone. After playing a clip of the Republican telling the President to back off and that "you'll get your chance" to speak, Matthews derided, "...Through it all he looked down at the President. He looked down at him as a person."

As for the reason, Matthews began to speculate and then backed off: "I don't even want to get into-- but we can guess and none of it good." (The left-wing journalist sees racism everywhere.) After guest James Lipton considered a motive, Matthews cut him off and suggested that "many" of the possibilities are "bad." He also somehow derided Romney as a constitutional illiterate for questioning Obama.

Lions and tigers and Nazis, oh my!

You know liberals are desperate when their hyperbole about Republicans turns the corner from absurd to unhinged. (audio clips after page break)

Julie Rovner, NPR's resident ObamaCare flack, failed to include any conservatives experts for her report on Medicare on Tuesday's All Things Considered . Rovner played two sound bites each from Drew Altman of the Kaiser Family Foundation and from MIT's Jonathan Gruber, whom the Washington Post named the Democratic Party's "most influential health-care expert." She didn't mention either individual's liberal affiliations.

The closest that the correspondent got to mentioning their left-of-center politics is when she pointed out how Gruber "likes the way the Affordable Care Act takes on Medicare with a variety of approaches."

The Tampa Bay Times’s fact-checker site PolitiFact is helping the Obama administration peddle a false claim about the Supreme Court’s decision in Ledbetter v. Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co., which said that employees who wish to bring a pay discrimination lawsuit under federal law generally have to do so within 180 days. The Court, however, specifically left open the possibility that such persons could sue later on if they did not discover the discrimination until later.’

In yesterday’s debate, Obama falsely claimed the Supreme Court said Ledbetter could not sue even if she had no way of discovering the discriminatory pay disparity. He said “the Supreme Court said that she couldn’t bring suit because she should have found about it earlier, whereas she had no way of finding out about it. Unfortunately, PolitiFact parroted this false claim (which was also made by Lilly Ledbetter at the Democratic National Convention), in an October 16 post-debate analysis article entitled “Obama: Mitt Romney refused to say whether he supports Lilly Ledbetter Act.”  PolitiFact noted (emphasis mine):

Mitt Romney has dropped out of his scheduled appearance on ABC’s The View, although his wife Ann will appear as scheduled on Thursday. The Huffington Post suggests that Romney said yes to the appearance after disparaging this show in the secret Mother Jones video in which he made “devastating comments” about the “47 percent.”

Why not? Liberals would say, as David Shuster put it on Current TV, “Because he’s a chicken, that’s why!” He added: "If you've got any integrity and you say yes, I'll go on your show, then you follow through.”
