"Live after Obama's jobs speech
After Pres. Obama's job speech, tune in for the latest live coverage. Guests include Rep. Ron Paul, Sen. Jeff Sessions, Valerie Jarrett, Dave Ramsey and more"
Factchecking on the bragging of job creation, plus there's a poll on the right side !
I'm watching John King. He's talking about Perry. Brings up graphic about the "front-runners". Shows Perry, Romney, and Bachmann (at 9%). Even though the graphic shows Bachmann, he says that Ron Paul is third at 9% and Bachmann is at 8% (but Ron Paul's name is not even on the graphic).
This is very sloppy, probably sleazy reporting - this is why the lame stream media is loosing it.
They didn't poll Paul vs. Obama because they didn't want to reveal how Paul has the best shot to win over any other GOP candidate. They chose to match the three that do not get crossover from Independents or Democrats against Obama - another earlier CNN Poll showed that Ron Paul leads all GOP against Obama.
"Candy Crowley Lies About Ron Paul's Chance to Beat Obama..."
They don't want another poll out there like that one.

Lake Massabesic, New Hampshire (CNN) – Politicians often seek to portray youthful vigor, but at age 76 Congressman Ron Paul may have to work harder than others.
He showed Friday he's up to the challenge.
Paul, who famously rides his bicycle for exercise throughout the sticky, sweltering summers in Houston, Texas, invited some New Hampshire staffers and reporters on an hour-long bike ride around scenic Lake Massabesic outside Manchester, New Hampshire Friday afternoon.
here's the cnn story:
Here's the story from New York Times that discusses Malloy's "disability":
Here's the excerpt from Wikipedia:
Time for some defense !! Be nice.
Three days after Hurricane Irene ripped through Connecticut, reports say that about 400,000 people are still without power. Water has just crested this morning from massive flooding that rendered about one thousand roads impassable.
Today on American Morning, Governor Dannel Malloy discusses the damage within the state and the government's relief efforts with Christine Romans. He also responds the political debate over the federal role of disaster response, commenting about Ron Paul's remark that FEMA gets in the way and wastes money.
CNN makes hurricane in NYC far more dramatic than it really is. While the actor is seeking cover behind a wall, people are just walking by in the background. Watch the footage, it's funny!
Thanks to SaveOurSovereignty for the video:

Jon Huntsman: 1
Rick Santorum: 1
Thad McCotter: 1
going from 14% to 6% is worrisome. Even if it doesn't really mean anything... the media will use it to continue to marginalize paul.
Looks like we still have a lot of work to do.
My critique of the most recent CNN/ORC poll (released August 29).
In the “South” region, Ron Paul received 10% support among those polled. Given that it makes up such a notable portion of the total sample, this earns Ron Paul roughly 4.15% of the total vote in the sample, regardless of what respondents say in other regions. Yet, Paul receives just 6% of the total vote in the sample. Doing the quick calculation, this means that Paul must have received just 3.16% of the vote in the other 3 regions – West, Midwest, and Northeast – combined.
As far as differences between these regions are negated, that’s effectively a national poll with Paul receiving just above 3% of the vote. The last national poll in which he registered so low (without the presence of Giuliani)? An ABC News/Washington Post poll dated April 14-17, which had Paul at 2%, and a full 50% of respondents offering Other/None/Undecided.
Needless to say, this result falls well outside the expected range of Paul’s support across the rest of the country. In fact, the most recent Gallup poll (which had Paul at a 13%, admittedly on the high end of his polling range) showed that Ron Paul actually performed better in the West, Midwest, and Northeast than he did in the South...
Does anyone find it strange that the last two polling's by CNN Ron was at 14% and 12% without palin and mr. 9/11 and now he's showing only 6%? Guess it was just an unlucky selection of necons this time around.
Create comment on the thread, the age group gap is huge...
I said I wasn't going to e-mail you about Perry but changed my mind. I can't stand by and say nothing like I did with Bush.
I began keeping track of Perry when he began his second term as Governor because I didn't like what I saw. So here goes. Please forward this to all your friends. YOU DO NOT WANT PERRY. You think Bush was bad. He doesn't hold a candle to Perry. If Perry becomes President he will be your worst nightmare. I don't care for Obama one bit but I like Perry a lot less.
