It seems as though Stacey Dash bravely jumped in the crossfire this week after she made the decision to publicly announce that she was voting for Mitt Romney via her Twitter account. For days following her announcement, she was tweeted hate-filled messages, that included the cliche’ Clueless tweets from people who were appalled that she was voting for a Republican.

Contract negotiations between striking teachers and public school administrators here were scheduled to begin late Wednesday morning, although as the strike enters its third day, there is no indication that a resolution is near. In the view of some here, the toxic relationship between Karen Lewis, president of the Chicago Teachers Union, and Mayor Rahm Emanuel, whom Ms. Lewis has called a “bully” and a “liar,” has helped push the city’s teacher contract talks to the point of a crisis, forcing 350,000 students out of their classrooms in the nation’s third-largest school system not long after the new academic year began.

A bumpy overseas trip and a month of pummeling by Democratic ads depicting Mitt Romney as an out-of-touch plutocrat and possible tax evader appear to have taken a toll. Three polls released in the last 24 hours show President Obama widening his lead over the former Massachusetts governor to as much as nine points. The surveys of registered voters, all conducted sometime between August 2nd and 8th, also have Romney’s unfavorable ratings headed north. Two of the polls show his support among independents slipping. [Read More]
