Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich took quite a shot at Barack Obama Sunday.

Appearing on ABC's This Week, Gingrich said of the President, "You’ll notice he’s canceling his trips over the hurricane. He did not cancel his trips over Benghazi."

The Des Moines Register shocked many political observers Saturday by endorsing Mitt Romney for president.

Clearly not accepting such a thing, Michael Tomasky, the Obama-loving correspondent for the Daily Beast, came out Sunday claiming the Register's endorsement "is little more than a practical joke":

For the second time in two months, Barack Obama made a joke about his birth certificate.

At a campaign event in Nashua, New Hampshire, Saturday, the President used the issue to bash Mitt Romney.

As liberal reporters obsess and nearly faint in the waning days of the campaign that conservatives would dare to assert a right to life for a human being conceived in rape, NPR.org offers a better idea: Plants deserve rights. The NPR headline: “Recognizing the Right of Plants to Evolve.”

Unborn babies have no rights...unlike the sensitive weeds in your garden? Pro-choice, but anti-chili pepper?

A mix of hatred and despair on display Friday night from a member of Barack Obama’s core constituency: the Hollywood Left. On something called John Fugelsang: So That Happened, which runs weekly on Current, actor/radio host Jay Thomas combined fret and an insult in decrying the Republican ticket of Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan: “I can’t believe we’re talking the 21st century and these two white idiots are running for something.”

Saying “these are the most un-modern people I’ve ever seen. They’re medieval, almost” because “they don’t believe in abortion,” Thomas despaired: “I’m really worried, and I feel right now that Mitt Romney has a really good chance of winning the election.”

A pretty funny bit from ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live proving some people accept whatever they are told and have no hesitation about pronouncing their opinion on it. Even if it never occurred. Kimmel sent a camera crew onto Hollywood Boulevard, outside his Los Angeles studio, to ask people who “won” the “First Lady Debate”?

As excerpted, the Thursday before last, at the end of FNC’s Special Report with Bret Baier, passers by weren’t shy about sharing their assessments of how Michelle Obama and Ann Romney performed in the supposed “First Lady Debate.”

Tina Fey isn't the only actor helping the Center for Reproductive Rights raise money and "consciousness" about how women need quick (and occasionally subsidized) abortions. For their "Draw the Line" campaign against the pro-life movement in America and around the world, a whole roster of stars (and semi-stars) filmed a pro-abortion video.

That left-wing cast included Meryl Streep, Amy Poehler, Sarah Silverman, Sandra Bernhard, Kevin Bacon and his wife Kyra Sedgwick, Lisa Kudrow, Tea Leoni, Audra McDonald, Martha Plimpton, Oliver Platt, Ally Sheedy, and Billy Crudup:

Fox News star Bill O’Reilly yelled at Geraldo Rivera on his show Friday night about how Brian Williams and Bob Schieffer failed to press Barack Obama on the facts about the terrorist attack in Benghazi. Rivera tried to change the subject by claiming Romney should have played journalist at the last debate.

Later in the show, Imus sidekick Bernard McGuirk said the Brian Williams interview was disgusting and they should have played Johnny Mathis music behind Williams and Obama.

Having not done a press conference since June, Barack Obama has instead appeared on ABC's The View, CBS's Late Show with David Letterman, and NBC's Tonight Show with Jay Leno.

Apparently feeling MSNBC's Morning Joe will present him with similar softballs and friendly confines, the President is doing an interview with Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski Saturday to be aired Monday just eight days before Americans go to the polls.

The latest and possibly last (we can hope) preelection poll from partnership between the Associated Press and GfK Roper International purportedly tells us that most of us "now express prejudice toward blacks" whether we "recognize those feelings or not."

That's the conclusion communicated by AP reporter Sonya Ross and wire service deputy director of polling Jennifer Agiesta. In case we don't get the point, the item's accompanying photograph at the AP national site, Yahoo News and likely elsewhere is of Barack Obama, who despite the recognized and unrecognized racism of most Americans managed to carry 53% of the vote in 2008. Contrary to the report's headline, the AP pair admit that the AP-GfK poll results alone (done online, to add insult to injury) don't prove the point they're trying to make; other bizarre tests are also involved.

The rabid Left has no limits to indecency.

Jeff Goodby and Rich Silverstein, the founders of the advertising agency Goodby, Silverstein & Partners, have just released a pro-Obama commercial eerily reminiscent of Lyndon Johnson's controversial Daisy ad featuring children singing about a variety of horrors including an America - supposedly under President Romney - where "sick people just die" and "oil fills the sea" (video follows with full lyrics and commentary):

The national and battleground state polls are all showing tremendous momentum for Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney since the first debate.

Despite this, with the absence of conservative columnist Charles Krauthammer, the entire panel of PBS’s Inside Washington Friday – comprised of the Washington Post’s Colby King, PBS’s Mark Shields, Politico’s Evan Thomas, and NPR’s Nina Totenberg – unanimously stated that if the election were held today, President Obama would win (video follows with transcribed highlights and commentary):

Assessing the presidential race in the Midwest with Chris Hayes on Thursday night, MSNBC's Rachel Maddow said Ohio Gov. John Kasich may be the "cockiest of all of the cocky breed of the Republican governors right now," but his loss on union bargaining rights was so stinging "I actually think the Republican establishment in Ohio is pretty wussy compared to what they were like in 2010."

That sounds a lot like a taunt that Ohio Republicans may want to tack to the bulletin board. They were discussing how Wisconsin doesn't look as good as they think it should:

It's hard to find a benchmark against which to compare remarks delivered by Vice President Joe Biden, but here's one from a past administration. In June 2004, Bush 43 Vice President Dick Cheney was greeted on the Senate Floor at the annual Senate photo op by Vermont Senator Patrick Leahy. Leahy had previously been flogging the left's phantasm over alleged "profiteering" by Halliburton, the company at which Cheney had served as Chairman and CEO from 1995-2000. At the end of a testy exchange, Cheney either said "(F-word) you" or "(F-word) yourself."

The Washington Post (go to the third of 22 pages at the link), the New York Times, and the Associated Press covered the story. A Taipei Times dispatch claiming to a blend of Times and AFP reporting actually contains the F-word. A Google News Archive search surfaces at least a dozen establishment press stories and commentaries which are still out there. However, I found almost no mainstream press stories covering what the father of slain Benghazi-defending hero Tyrone Woods claims that Biden said to him when the casket containing his son's remains returned to America (bold was in original):
