According to the latest Fox News Poll.

A new Fox News poll of key battleground states — Colorado, Florida, Iowa, Nevada, New Mexico, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Virginia and Wisconsin — shows the same.  

  • Obama leads Romney 47% to 39% – +8
  • Obama tops Santorum 48% to 38% – +10
  • Obama beats Paul 48% to 37% – +11
  • Obama crushes Gingrich 52% to 32% – +20

Wow have things changed!

But……

America feels the economy is a little better and the GOP Presidential candidates are bashing the hell out of themselves – exposing all of their flaws.

So, really what do you expect?

I will add one more – the GOP Presidential field is very weak.

share save 120 16 New Jersey Dentist Patrick Bamgboye Investigated After Second Child Dies in His Care

I had a link over at Flap’s Dentistry Blog this morning and this is a truely tragic event.

Here is an update:

An Irvington dentist who was disciplined by the state after a 6-year-old girl died during a routine procedure eight years ago is again under investigation following the death of a second child in his care last week.

Patrick Bamgboye, 64, was still on probation for the earlier incident when 3-year-old Juan Quiej and his mother arrived at Dental Health Associates last Wednesday.

Juan, who was there to have cavities fixed, was restrained in a cocoon-like papoose to limit his movement and administered a local anesthetic, his mother said.

Shortly afterward, the boy went limp, his lips turning blue. He had stopped breathing. He was later pronounced dead at a local hospital.

The death has sparked an investigation by the state Division of Consumer Affairs, the agency that oversees the Board of Dentistry, officials confirmed Tuesday.

“We need to know what happened and why,” said Thomas Calcagni, the division’s director.

In addition, Acting Essex County Prosecutor Carolyn Murray said in a statement her office was working with the Attorney General’s Office to determine if a criminal probe should be launched.

Then, there was this from a release from the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry.

We want to share with you the tragic news of the death of a three-year-old boy in New Jersey.  New Jersey officials are investigating dentist and AAPD & ADA member, Dr. Patrick Bamgboye, after the child died in his care while restrained and under local anesthetic for a routine cavity-filling procedure. Dr. Bamgboye was still on probation following a suspension by the Board of Dentistry for the death of a six-year-old girl in 2004.  

Similar to the three-year old boy, the six-year old girl had been placed in a papoose and given a local anesthetic, and stopped breathing during the procedure. But a medical examiner determined that she had died of natural causes because she suffered from several serious medical conditions, including cerebral palsy.  The Board of Dentistry investigated her death and filed a complaint against Bamgboye in 2008.  An administrative law judge in 2010 found no gross negligence, but the board suspended Bamgboye for three months in January last year and placed him on probation for an additional 21 months. The Division of Consumer Affairs, which oversees the Board of Dentistry, is investigating. The Essex County prosecutor’s office is reviewing the case with the attorney general’s office to determine whether a criminal investigation is warranted.

Stay tuned as the investigation proceeds.

Rick Santorum says birth control harms women and society

Rick Santorum will NOT be the Republican nominee for President. There is no frakking way.

These comments are so far out of the mainstream, it makes Mitt Romney look good and Gingrich virtuous.

share save 120 16 Sen Barbara Boxer Video: Insurance Rights TRUMP Religious Rights

All, I can say is wow!

It is all about the government and ObamaCare mandates for Boxer and Al Sharpton. Do as WE say, because we (the government) know what is best for you.

Maybe Senator Boxer would like to tell me where the right to buy health insurance is located in the Constitution?

Oh yeah, the religious one is in the first amendment, remember Senator?

Yet, Democrat U.S. Senate majority leader Harry Reid will provide cover for pro-life, Catholic Senators who want to vote NO on the Blunt amendment.

Mitt Romney and Rick Santorum

According to the latest Rasmussen Poll.

Follow the bouncing ball. Former U.S. Senator Rick Santorum has now bounced to a 12-point lead over Mitt Romney in the race for the Republican presidential nomination.

The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey of Likely Republican Primary Voters finds Santorum with 39% support to the former Massachusetts governor’s 27%. Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich follows from a distance with 15% of the vote, and Texas Congressman Ron Paul runs last with 10%. Three percent (3%) like some other candidate in the race, and six percent (6%) are undecided.

This race is almost becoming interesting.

But, will Romney go “NUCLEAR” against Santorum and allow Gingrich to regain the anti-Romney mantle?
