Barack Obama is traveling to New York City on Thursday. He won’t meet Louis Ortiz. But thanks to the New York Times, you can.
Here's the scary part....this guy could probably match Obama's performance for the past four years.
Four years of out of control spending, contributing five trillion dollars to an already staggering debt and according to labor dept. statistics, Last year there were 86 million people who didn't have a job and weren't consistently looking for one.

Major Breaking News
Gallup announced that Mitt Romney has surged to a 7 point lead in their Daily Tracking Poll. Romney's lead is now 52% to Obama 45%.
A new record was set yesterday by Romney of 51% to Obama 45% only to be broken one day later.
The wheels continue to come off the Obama campaign.
RealClearPolitics’ shows that Romney has now taken the lead in the Electoral College.
According to RCP they have Romney at 206, Obama at 201 and Toss Ups at 131.
The wheels are coming off of the Obama Campaign even with nearly all of the MSM working as if they were full members of the Obama campaign team.
If Real Clear Politics delineated between "Lean" and "Toss Up" using the 6% marker, Obama would be ahead 201 to 180.
If Real Clear Politics delineated between "Lean" and "Toss Up" using the 5% marker, Obama would be ahead 221 to 206.
If Real Clear Politics delineated between "Lean" and "Toss Up" using the 4% marker, Obama would be ahead 237 to 206.
If Real Clear Politics delineated between "Lean" and "Toss Up" using the 3% marker, Obama would be ahead 243 to 206.
If Real Clear Politics delineated between "Lean" and "Toss Up" using the 2% marker, Obama would be ahead 277 to 235. (enough to win the electoral college)
So where does RCP choose to put the division line this week? Why, at the perfectly logical 5.3% level, brining North Carolina (5.6%) and Arizona (5.3%) into the Republican fold, while keeping Pennsylvania (5.0%) out off the D column. Apparently RCP hates round numbers (except their division between "lean" and "likely" is 10%).
Since the post-debate polls haven't come out yet, I think the race has more or less gotten back to the status it was before the first one. BO will win somewhere between 280 and 300 EV.
It Appears the Election is Over and Mitt Romney Won the Presidency.
According to the latest Gallup Poll of likely voters Romney now leads Obama by 51% to 45%. The 6 point lead is outside the margin of error.
In the history of The United States, when a presidential candidate has lead by more than 50% in mid-October, they have all gone on to win the presidency. There has never been an exception in American history.
Welcome President Romney.
guys, here's a fine lesson in the art of cherry picking.
take some notes, it's yummy!it can also serve as an illustration for shifting the goal posts, but that's a lesson for another day... :)
All of a sudden, you teabaggers are looking at polls as the Gospel?? will wonders never cease?
There was a 14 point range between the most Republican and most Democratic polls the day before the election in 2008 with a surprisingly even distribution. A similar range could be found in 2004. The final result was pretty much dead smack in the middle, but the fact that the range existed makes one thing explicitly clear: individual polls can lie.
RCP's currently got Romney at 47 and Obama at 46 in their poll of polls. Nate Silver (who's using a very different formula so take this with a healthy dose of salt) has Obama at 50 and Romney at 48.
Two other points:
1) Check out yesterday's XKCD which points out the stupidity of the statement "When X, no one has accomplished Y in history". Streaks break
2) Can someone fact check that claim on 1980?
Yesterday the statistic was that nobody had ever lost when leading by 50% anytime in October. I pointed out that Obama also had a 50%+ lead in a Gallup poll this October, essentially making the statistic meaningless. I see they've decided to shift the goal posts.
What they don't realize is that no candidate named Mittens has ever won the presidency. Let alone beaten a candidate with the middle name of Hussein. History doesn't lie.
You keep forgetting there's a third debate, and we still haven't seen the results from the second debate.
Or the fact that it's one poll. The rest all still say Obama is winning.
Hey look, he's desperate. Let him cling to his delusions.
It'll be that much more enjoyable when he has to leave, cause he bet on the wrong horse.
Wasn't there a similar Time story (video) about some guy in Asia that was also an Obama lookalike? I think he was doing commercials too.
