The big time Romney-supporter and birther conspiracy enthusiast Donald Trump finally revealed the "big announcement" he'd been hyping all week this morning. After waxing on with the beloved right-wing talking point that our 44th president has not been properly vetted, he gave Pres. Obama an offer that according to Trump the president "can't refuse," announcing he will give $5 million to the charity of Pres. Obama's choice if the president releases his college transcripts and applications.
It has a lot of folks wondering if Trump understands the meaning of the phrase "October Surprise." read more
November 6th is 13 days away, but for more than one million Americans, Election Day was Tuesday the 23rd.
According to data provided by the George Mason University Elections project, more than 6.4 million Americans have cast ballots across the country, and that's up from 5.1 million Tuesday afternoon.
These are big numbers. Check out some of the swing-state highlights:
More than 800,000 voters have cast ballots in Ohio.
With only 14 days until election day, it has become even clearer that Ohio voters are probably going to be deciding whether Mitt Romney gets to move into the White House, or President Obama gets to stick around for another four years.

The candidates battled fiercely at their third and final debate on foreign policy, with Mitt Romney drawing contrast from Pres. Barack Obama more in terms of tone than of policy.
Rev. Sharpton's big criticism of Romney tonight was his "schizophrenia" after he distanced himself from positions he's taken while he's been campaigning for office. Rev also criticized Romney's lack of vision, "It's almost enough to make you miss George Bush - at least he had a doctrine."
We want to know what you think. We've got two polls for you to answer tonight.
First, the basic question: who won this one?

To hear John Kerry talk, we might as well be calling Mitt Romney "junior."
The Democratic senator of Massachusetts, who has been playing the Republican nominee in debate practice with President Obama, skewered Romney as having "zero experience in foreign policy" just hours before Monday night's debate.
When it comes to foreign policy, Romney and vice-presidential nominee Paul Ryan are the "single most inexperienced twosome to run for president and vice president in modern history of our country," declared Kerry to Politics Nation's Al Sharpton. read more
After weeks of pressure, Clear Channel announced this weekend it will take down the anonymous voter fraud billboards that had been placed in minority communities in Wisconsin and Ohio, prompting concerns of voter intimidation from many activists.

Pro-voting billboards will go up in Milwaukee too. read more
