October brought us a month closer to the election. Democrats suddenly became believers in voter fraud since the evil GOP might be doing it. The GOP was even paying for votes! Even sons of sitting Representatives were busted attempting to defraud voters. Democrats even went after voter integrity protectors.
Romney went to Louisiana after hurricane Isaac hit and Obama figured out that was the right thing to do to.
The debates began:

The unemployment rate dropped to 7.8% — an election miracle! If only people paid attention to the U6 number instead of the bullshit cooked one. As usual, no one cared Obama promised 5.6% by now because of his stimulus bill. I say cooked because we lost 38,000 manufacturing jobs since August and the only significant drop in unemployment was in government. Disability claims rose to 8,803,335. By the way, 1,035,000 construction jobs were lost under Obama.
The deficit for 2012 was $1.1 trillion — a trillion for the third year in a row. Of course, attacks on defense spending resumed despite its budget being smaller than entitlements by far as well as smaller than education.
Gas in California rose above $5 and rationing was employed.
Florida schools lowered the bar to the floor and implemented race-based discipline as suggested by Obama.
The remains of 10-year-old Jessica Ridgeway were identified and her murder was arrested.
Despite the President’s belief, Al Qaeda was still alive and actually in Massachusetts. Also, jihad was alive and well in Texas. Meanwhile, in NYC the Muslim Pride parade drew criticism from unlikely places.
NYPD was on alert for possible jihad by Iran and Hezbollah. It came out the White House had been considering releasing the Blind Sheik and Omar Khadr. Oh, the Federal Reserve was also a target. No problem though, just issue another EO.
Corruption and cronyism continued. In an effort to shut Univision up over Fast and Furious, Obama appointed the wife of the head of Univision to a US Diplomatic post. Oops, too late. Also, Nancy Pelosi’s brother got his fair share.
The TSA had its funding cut and collective bargaining effectively cut by the House. Those cuts came just in time as the TSA invaded train stations, bus depots, and subways – even searching our cars. Their incompetence was also leaked; as if we needed that with the horror stories coming almost weekly.
George Zimmerman filed suit against NBC for editing the 911 call tape.
Hurricane Sandy hit and as FEMA failed AGAIN, it became known as Superstorm Sandy instead. Despite strong warnings, people died and were unprepared. Obama said, “We leave nobody behind.” Tell that to the men in Benghazi.
Alex Karras passed away.
There was a Green on Blue attack on UK troops in Afghanistan. Our consulate in India was attacked. Syria became worrisome as Jihadis seized a missile base. Russia looked at the US as weak and pulled out of missile negotiations.
Socialized medicine in the UK reached a new height of excellence.
We also learned the 911 protests had nothing to do with a video, even in Egypt where they started.
Indonesia stopped a plot to bomb the US embassy.
In Brussels, the Exxon Mobil chief was assassinated.
