Justin Trudeau is down in the USA on an eventful political evening

I don’t have a lot to say tonight, just tuning in all the news on the Internet for entertainment. Most of the real politics action is south of the border tonight. Not only are the last four GOP contenders debating on CNN down in Florida, but Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is having his big state…

PRESIDENT OBAMA TO TAKE HIS CASE FOR SYRIA STRIKE TO TV

I keep on changing my mind about what I think the chances are of Congress approving a Syria strike. Now I think the chances look dim again. It seems like the left-leaning Democrats and the libertarian factions of Republicans are banding together to defeat it. With things unravelling in Congress, President Barack Obama yet again plans to…

BARACK OBAMA WINS OHIO, RE-ELECTED PRESIDENT OF THE USA

So the networks have called Ohio for Barack Obama and he is re-elected President of the United States with 274 electoral votes. (UPDATE: Now 281 with Nevada.) But a big controversy has erupted on TV. From what I gather reading the Twitter feeds there is a big brouhaha over at Fox News at the moment, with…

ROMNEY STILL IN TROUBLE IN FLORIDA, SWING STATES

Basically, with Pennsylvania gone the only hope now for Romney is an Electoral College path that goes through Ohio, where Romney is still trailing by 170,000. And that is assuming he pulls out Florida and North Caroline and Virginia….

LATEST RESULTS: TOO CLOSE IN FLORIDA, OBAMA AHEAD IN OHIO

It seems to be looking good for Obama. He’s leading early in Ohio and still leading in Florida at this point, though Romney is starting to close in. But there is no way he should be down this much at this point in the evening. Ed Rollins on Fox News just now said Florida is…

LAST WORD ON THE DEMOCRATS AND THEIR CONVENTION

This post will serve as my last comment on the Democratic National Convention which I thoroughly failed to cover last week. As it turned out, I was gone on assignment most of the day Thursday on a trip to Moose Jaw, so I was busy with that and missed out most of the final night of…

DNC CONVENTION: BILL CLINTON SPEAKS, AND OTHER NEWS

Welcome to my live continuing convention coverage, this time of the Democratic National Convention. Right now former President Bill Clinton is speaking and placing President Barack Obama’s name in nomination, and later tonight is the roll call of the states to put him over the top.  Right now Clinton is making fun of Romney’s job creation…
