Obama Up by 14 in Key States As New PPPS Poll Captures Previously Unsampled Demographic

PPPS (Littleton)—Heading into the final weeks of the 2012 election season, President Obama is now up by 14 percentage points, on average, in seven key battleground states, according to a joint Pundit Pete Press Service/Acorn Polling Services poll released this morning.

The new poll, which shows a significant jump in support for the President, especially in battleground states, appears to reflect the President's recent outstanding foreign policy initiative to ban videos insulting to Muslims, combined with the effects of a previously unsampled, but key voter demographic, Deceased Voters.

Pundit Pete Opines on Libya Consulate Murders

PPPS (Littleton)—After our initial story on September 12, in which we correctly assessed the cause of the deaths of four great Americans at the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya, we've chosen to sit back and watch the story (very slowly) unfold in the mainstream press. 

Today, the Washington Post, finally came around to our point of view on  the cause, and posted an article outlining the Adminstration responses and statements in this matter. Here's that Washington Post article.

And here is Pundit Pete's response, posted as a comment to the Washington Post article:


Here's what we posted at the Pundit Pete Press Service on the morning of September 12, just after Secretary Clinton gave her official statement about the Libya consulate murders.

"Make no mistake, this was not an angry mob action, as the press is calling it, but a planned attack by Islamic radicals timed to occur on the 11th anniversary of 9/11. The claimed outrage about the Youtube film is just a ruse, perhaps used to inflame the crowd, while the professional terrorists did their deadly work."

Romney Rally in Colorado - Photo Essay

PPPS (Littleton)—We sent Photographer Pete to cover the Romney campaign event held this evening at D'Evelyn High School in Jefferson County, Colorado. Unfortunately, Photographer Pete, forgot to take a fresh battery set, so we had to rely on photographs taken by Citizen Pete, who attended the rally.

Here are some photographs that Citizen Pete took with his cell phone. Click on images to enlarge.

Two young Romney enthusiasts who came early.  That's former Congressman Tom Tancredo (orange hat)  talking with State Representative Libby Szabo.

1 1/2 hours before the official event start, the crowd was already well over a thousand.

Singer Jo Dee Messina and her band warmed up the crowd with some  great country music.

As it grew dark, the crowd kept getting bigger, and Jo Dee Messina got them stoked up.

By the time the concert was over, just a few more folks had arrived - probably about 8 to 10,000.

Former Congressman Bob Beauprez really got the crowd fired up.

The crowd got to see the Romney Motorcade turn off the highway.....

....... and arrive at the school (in background right).
In addition to the Pundit Pete Press Service, there was a full press contingent - local, national and international - to cover the event.....

......... and at least one volunteer who spoke Spanish.


(Together with Romney)

As Romney took the stage, the crowd went wild.

After giving his stump speech, Mitt Romney worked the crowd, including a handshake with State Rep. Robert Ramirez......

....... and a photo with Robert's daughter, Lauren.

A great time was had by all.

Blog Post Predicts Decline of 4th Estate

PPPS (Littleton)—In our continuing efforts to monitor and analyze the state of journalism in America, on occasion we encounter a set of ideas, or an article (not written by us) so enlightening and so profound, that it bears repeating. While our first inclination would simply be to pirate the ideas and make them our own, we have chosen, instead, to link to the original source.

Therefore, against the recommendation of our Chief Plagiarist, Pilferer Pete, here is a link to an article written by John Hugh Gilmore at the blog, Minnesota Conservatives.

Twitter & The End Of The Fourth Estate

Read and leave John a comment, and of course mention that you found it here, at Pundit Pete. Our advertisers will be most grateful.

Clinton Speech on Libya Murders Omits the Word "Freedom"

PPPS (Littleton)—We just watched Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's speech in response to the murder of our ambassador to Libya last night.

Secretary Clinton did a good job of honoring the two murdered State Department personnel, and we stand with all Americans in honoring their service and sacrifice, and that of the two brave Marines whose names have not yet been released.

Make no mistake, this was not an angry mob action, as the press is calling it, but a planned attack by Islamic radicals timed to occur on the 11th anniversary of 9/11. The claimed outrage about the Youtube film is just a ruse, perhaps used to inflame the crowd, while the professional terrorists did their deadly work.

America, we are at war with radical Islam, and this is just one more tragic battle.

But what we find disturbing is the response by our own government, in which Secretary of State and the President are responsible for conveying. In addition to the initial apologetic tone presented in response to the Cairo embassy attacks, Secretary Clinton's official response this morning failed to convey an important American principle and value which should be at the forefront of our dimplomacy around the world.

In her carefully crafted response, the Secretary failed to use the word "freedom". Instead, she twice substituted the word "progress",  at a point where nearly every American would naturally have used the word "freedom".

Watch the speech for yourself. We'll post it here as soon as a copy is available.

If in a moment of crisis like this, on the anniversary of the greatest attack on American soil, the leader who represents our diplomacy around the world, fails to list FREEDOM as an American value, maybe it's time to recall that leader and her boss in the White House.

Thanks to ABC News for posting the video on Youtube.

An Apology to Our Readers - WE ARE VERY SORRY

PPPS (Littleton)--We, the staff at the Pundit Pete Press Service want to apologize to our loyal readers for the dearth of reporting and posting over the past month or so. We've been indisposed.

Or to put it another way, WE HAVEN'T BEEN GETTING PAID.

Funds have apparently gotten a bit tight, thanks to the need for our staff attorney, Pleader Pete, to defend against a regulatory action against PPPS by the U.S. Department of Justice Civil Rights Division. The DOJ-CRD claims we don't have enough diversity on our staff, although a simple review of our staff list clearly contradicts that assertion. With the recent hiring of our new Minority & Diversity Issues Editor, Pigment-Challenged Pete, we are hoping any misunderstanding along those lines can be resolved quickly.

In order to make ends meet, our leader, Pundit Pete, had to revert to working his day job, even on weekends. He got so busy that he forgot to review and approve many timely news stories. And he forgot to sign paychecks.

Picture from the porch of our cabin,without the bear. - Pundit Pete
Then Pete went on vacation deep in the heart of the Colorado mountains, out of reach of the internet and cell phone coverage. Something to do with his anniversary. Go figure.

In his absence, and without getting paid, the staff resorted to playing video games, instead of researching and posting stories. We hope you can understand, and forgive them.

But now all is well, thanks to a little cash infusion from our benefactor, Philanthropist Pete. We just ran to the bank and the checks cleared!

The staff are happy once again and have resolved to rededicate themselves to bringing you the fair and balanced reporting that you have come to expect.

We thank you, our loyal readers for your continued support.

Oh, and one other thing. Keep buying those t-shirts.

Empty Chair Day 2012

PPPS (Littleton) —In response to that puzzling performance by Clint Eastwood at the Republican National Convention last Thursday, those Tea Party radicals and other malcontents have declared today to be National Empty Chair Day. And although we don't condone such spontaneous celebrations on what would otherwise be a day to honor our union friends, we thought we would post this picture sent in by one of our loyal readers, Citizen Pete.

Submitted by Citizen Pete, 2012 (click to enlarge)

In the interest of full disclosure, we thought we would include the speech by Mr. Eastwood. We in the press don't normally cover, comment on, or encourage political speech or opinions expressed by Hollywood celebrities, but because this was apparently condoned by the GOP, we have included it. Draw your own conclusions.


And we certainly want to emphasize that we DO NOT CONDONE the antics of those misfits at Misfit Politics who produced this sophomoric response video. Please do not click on it to watch. It would only encourage them.
