Gloria Allred Plotting "October Surprise" Against Mitt Romney?

by at . Comments

Is Gloria Allred planning on dropping an "October Surprise" bombshell on Mitt Romney's campaign?

That's the rumor going around, based on reliable GOP sources already bracing for a counterattack.

Matt Drudge tweeted Thursday: "Here she comes. Hearing Gloria Allred out there again, about to make a move. After all, it's her time of the campaign. Team O at the ready!!"

The Red Side of Life, another GOP watchdog group warned its supporters of the need for action:

"We're doing too well to risk 'an Allred,' she can be stopped, but it will take action on our behalf."

Allred, a supporter of President Barack Obama refused to confirm, or deny, Drudge's prediction.

A victim's rights activist who never met a camera she didn't like, Allred's reputation precedes her.

She's been a thorn in the side of many a powerful figure - and often with flimsy evidence at best.

So what would she have in store for Romney, the surging Republican presidential candidate?

Breitbart speculates that it may have to do with Romney's position on abortion in his capacity as a church leader, and that Obama's "Romnesia" bit may be telling.

Romney allegedly - allegedly, details vary widely - was insensitive to several women in his Mormon congregation and counseled them not to get abortions.

This issue arose during his bid for the U.S. Senate in 1994, during which the term "Romnesia" was also used to describe his inability to recall specific details.

This is perhaps reason to believe Allred is preparing to use this against Romney in 2012, and may be doing so in coordination with the Obama campaign.

"October Surprise" is a term used to describe ... well, just that. A late-breaking, out-of-nowhere development at this time of year that shakes up a close race.

With polls showing the race a dead heat and probably trending toward Romney with 15 days to go, we can expect some craziness to emenate from both sides.

Whether there's any truth to this Allred rumor remains to be seen, however.

Al-Qaeda-affiliated group in Yemen crucified an alleged US spy, and posted a video of the crucifixion on YouTube, the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI) said on Wednesday.
Obama says Al-Qaeda is on the run? What a fraud.

Because there is documented evidence that Willard Romney has lied over 500 times in public speeches during the past two months and that he has repeated these lies hundreds of times I have no need of an "October surprise" to know that he is a disaster for America.

...and Obama has never lied. Wow, Richard (Dick), wake up.

Wow, Richard, you must be a busy boy. Counting 500 lies in Romney's speeches in two months. Now go back and count four years of them from Obama's mouth. That should take you through the election.

Still waiting for the accusers of Herman Cain to follow through, who according to VainGloria, only came out to "restore her reputation", which wasn't even known until VainGloria marched her in front of a camera. They've all disappeared, why? Their reputations haven't been cleared yet! VainGloria is a pretend lawyer who created pretend controversies for sake of attention. Anyone who pays attention to the lawyer who cried wolf is a tool.

Only a demented blood thirsty obamunist would embrace a leader, within the context of a church, outside the realm of politics, who pushed pregnant women toward abortions. Will Gloria Allblood ask resulting children that escaped the carnage how they feel about Romney's advice?

Gloria Allred "thinks" that its controversial that Romney may have persuaded a woman not to kill her child? Gloria Allred is sick enought to endorse Obama's support for the summary executions of infants who survive abortions. Obama actually said that prohibiting a woman from summarily executing an infant who survives an abortion would be a "burden" on the woman! With Allred and Obama we have some sick, sick, sick fanatics. Four more months! Four more months! Four more months!

Gloria Allred is a joke! I can't think of any other attorney who has to hold a televised press conference for every client she represents (which are usually prostitutes and whores)

Oh no--a bishop is anti-abortion! But seriously, anyone who gives credibility to this man-hating hack is at least as offensive as she is. I am a libertine--a LIBERTINE--and I'll be voting for Romney. He's what the country needs to survive. Social issues and party-in-power are IRRELEVANT, as we know. To wit: Dem prez, Dem Senate, Dem House from 2008-10, and not a peep about marriage equality or legalization of a smokable weed that grows in the ground. Roe v. Wade survived Reagan and Dubya, so fear not, you ignorant young women who are too cheap to buy birth control pills (which were not available in my day, and yet we managed) or too insecure to keep their legs closed. It's time for the good Lord to call Gloria home. She's done enough harm on the planet.

P.S. Real women aren't shallow and vapid, like Gloria and her girls. And we aren't afraid to put the country's interests before our own. Oh, I guess that makes us unselfish, too.

That's it? That's all -- that he advised women not to get abortions? Can they find some of those women now, and asked them whether they are happy or sorry that they had kids? I predict Trump will produce Obama's college transcripts, which reveal that Obama registered as a "foreign born student" to get financial aid.

Every on line betting venue has Obama up by at least 2/1, come on boys and girs put some of that red money down
