After four years of broken promises, failed economic policies and a foreign policy in tatters; President Barack Obama has come up with a new and exciting idea to save his presidency: an exclamation point. According to a campaign spokeswoman, Team Obama has replaced the period at the end of "Forward" on placards and banners with an exclamation point that reflects "the stakes in this election and energy at our events."

For months we've seen hundreds polls on the upcoming presidential race from every organization imaginable. There have been polls showing bounces and anti-bounces, polls showing a slight lead for one candidate and then the other and, most often, polls showing the race is a dead heat within the margin of error. But instead of the usual four percent most polls claim as the margin of error, a new poll (yes, I see the irony) shows the real difference between the poll results and the election results could be much more.

Vice President Joe Biden gave another speech and therefore made another inappropriate comment. Appearing at a Minneapolis campaign event yesterday, Mr. Biden referred to Republican critics of Obama administration policies as "squealing pigs" and that's the sound byte that's getting all the media attention.

The overall campaign slogan for President Barack Obama's re-election effort is Forward as in please don't look back at my record because I've failed miserably. His current two-day bus tour of northern Ohio and western Pennsylvania has a slogan too: Betting on America as in I'm betting I can get enough Americans to fall for empty promises and meaningless platitudes again in spite of my miserable record.

The latest polls show former Senator Rick Santorum up by 9 points in Michigan, a state whose February 28 primary may provide much more than the 30 delegates riding on the contest. Mathematically it's not a 'must win' for former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney, but losing there (or even not winning by a large margin) may do irreparable damage to what was once considered his inevitable nomination.
