October Surprises???

Just a fun thread...

We have only 8 left in October and there are still hints that we'll be dropped some suprises.

Let's make guesses as to what these October suprises will be.

Donald Trump teases ‘very big news’ about Obama on Wednesday* - NY Daily News

What could this be? Another birth certificate finding? Obama and Trump share the same hairdresser? Could it be as big as Breitbart's big bang?

We shall see...

And according to Drudge Report's twitter, Gloria Allred has an October surprise about Romney...

I hope Trump's October Surprise is just birther bullshit.

From RadarOnline so take with a huge grain of salt:

Quote:
A man claiming to be a close pal to President Obama during college made contact with Republican operatives recently, ready to go public with claims that Obama used and sold cocaine in college, RadarOnline.com is reporting exclusively.

The operatives tried to spread the story through the media and the Romney campaign, a source close to the situation told Radar.

“At first he wanted to do a book,” a source close to the situation told RadarOnline.com about the alleged college pal. “But there just wasn’t enough time before the election."

“The people he is involved with have produced other credible information that is damaging to national Democratic figures in the past few years."

Operatives close to the Romney campaign were contacted and rejected the information, the source told Radar.

“They didn’t want anything to do with it,” the source said. “They thought it was not anything they wanted to be associated with or anything their candidate would want to be associated with.”

In fact, the man’s charges about Obama never reached Mitt Romney.

A proposal of the man’s story was created and viewed by Radar. The document claims that there are multiple sources who can back up allegations that Obama used and sold cocaine in college.

The alleged pal was willing to go on the record for the story and take a polygraph test, according to the source.

“The operatives close to the Romney campaign believed the man’s story would be the ultimate October Surprise but they got nowhere."

“People who would have taken the information to the highest levels of Romney’s campaign just wouldn’t touch it.

“They don’t want their candidate smeared with this type of activity.”
This is likely what our dear friend Mr Trump has in store for tomorrow.

Now, President Obama has already been on record as admitting cocaine use in college, as did W before him. We shall see if there's any compelling evidence of dealing, but I doubt it.

I actually hope this leaks out. I think the general public is so sick of the smear campaigns back and forth that I actually think any "surprises" would make the source look worse than the target.

I would hope so. Since I don't live in a swing state, I have no idea how bad the commercials are, but I haven't heard of anything bad so I guess the campaigns have been relatively clean.

It's pretty bad in Wisconsin. Since Romney started climbing in the polls it's gotten worse.

There are a couple corny "Romney helped me find my daughter when she was missing" type commercials out there. I hate Republicans.

This is not something to dismiss out of hand.

If he was selling cocaine while in college, even sharing it with some people, and they will say they gave him give some money, it is problematic. This would be a felony, and something a person that chose 'the law' as a profession should not have even played around with.

If this is the case will it matter?
In some of those swing states it could, it goes to character. A 19 year old smoking pot, is one thing. If we have a Barry Obama in his 20s studying law at Harvard, President of the Law Review? Not good.

Of course, this is all speculation.

I am interested in what Allred may have on Romney? In my local paper they had an article about how she did unfair and unproved hit pieces on Herman Cain

October Surprise sounds like the name of an escort service.

The rumor I heard was that Romney tried to convince a woman to not have an abortion. We'll see.

So, apparently a CombOver spokesperson has said it isn't coke. Now we have Douglas Cass saying it is divorce papers but no one knows how recent.

I for one am underwhelmed.

As for Allred's surprise, I'm sure I will be equally as underwhelmed.

I think that story's been out there for a while. Supposedly when he was a Bishop in his church. Hardly scandalous for a bishop.

If Obama was a coke dealer well that's pretty scandalous. For a future President. I'm sure all of them have varying degrees of skeletons. I do think just the suggestion of that, even without proof, could convince some people not to vote for him.
