Gingrich 45%, Obama 43%, in national poll

Newt Gingrich has moved to the top of the polls in Iowa, has  made big gains in New Hampshire and now has a two-point edge over President Obama in a hypothetical general election match-up.
A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey of Likely Voters finds Gingrich with  45% of the vote while President Obama is supported  by 43%. Six percent (6%) prefer some other candidate, and six percent (6%) are undecided. Details here.

Affair to remember

The global triple threat builds

The prospect of   a new  Middle East war involving Israel and Iran, coinciding with  a collapse of the Euro provoking global economic chaos, has not receded. On the contrary, it seems to be escalating: the Euro crisis is far from  being solved, the  Iranians --  rattled  by sabotage of both  a nuclear and a  missile installation -- are clearly trying to distract attention by  storming the British Embassy in Tehran -- an act verging on war.
 Israel  is  openly  repositioning   its Jericho long-range missiles [ no doubt to reduce vulnerability to thousands of Hezbollah rockets.]  
Meanwhile the  British have  been moving a missile-equipped  nuclear submarine to the Gulf and the US has  deployed a carrier to the same area.  And Obama? Probably leading from under the Resolute desk  in the Oval office. Has there ever been a worse time to have an irresolute commander-in- chief?

President Oblunder

President Obama seems determined to alienate the USA's closest ally.  Now he has stumbled over the difference between England, Britain and the UK. There is no such thing as an "English" embassy anywhere in the world.  They are British  embassies.  Imagine the MSM ridicule  if this had been Herman Cain or  Rick Perry.

Obama, what the hell are we paying you for? Christie asks

New Jersey Governor Chris Christie has torn into President Obama for the failure of the debt supercommittee calling the president "a bystander in the Oval Office"
 “I was angry this weekend, listening to the spin coming out of the administration, about the failure of the supercommittee, and that the president knew it was doomed for failure, so he didn’t get involved. Well then what the hell are we paying you for?” Christie asked.

Good news from Down Under

Abbott:  Future PM?
We may be dismayed by the Republican line- up here.  But Australia may be seeing light at the end of the socialist tunnel. We've had an optimistic update from our correspondent in Australia, currently writhing under the heel of socialist Prime Minister "Jackboot Julia" Gillard.  
He says: "Obama was  here earlier this week  telling everyone we're his best friends, as he says to everyone wherever he goes. What was truly nauseating was to see (Gillard's) Labor Party brown-nosing him.  I heard Opposition Leader, Tony Abbott, speak  at the Sydney Institute last night. He is staunch conservative and is going to make a great Prime Minister. The Left loathe and fear him, which will make it all the sweeter."

Hillary's moment in history

"If President Obama is not willing to seize the moral high ground and step aside, then the two Democratic leaders in Congress, Sen. Harry Reid and Rep. Nancy Pelosi, must urge the president not to seek re-election—for the good of the party and most of all for the good of the country. And they must present the only clear alternative—Hillary Clinton."  This  is the core of a seminal piece in The Wall Street Journal,  that may signal historic change in this  country.  Read it all.
