Election Day – The Perfect Storm – Obama The Coward Auditions For American Idol Then Flees To The Punjab From Sarah Palin’s Rogue Wave

Today is Election Day and most of what we have written about since 2007 will be tested.

Is our analysis about the historical Mistake In ’08 correct? [See HERE, and HERE, and HERE, and HERE, and HERE, and HERE, and HERE.]

Is the “situation comedy” coalition of Barack Obama a joke? [See HERE, and HERE, and HERE, and HERE, and HERE, and HERE, and HERE, and HERE.]

We’ll know tonight.

As the month progresses will see how our “pull the band-aid off quickly” strategy develops. Is it better to undergo decades of painful lesser losses in order to return to the winning FDR/Hillary Clinton coalition? Or is it better to to yank the bandage off quickly – death doom and destruction for the Obama Dimocratic Party in 2010 so that the Democratic Party of old can be resurrected and the winning FDR/Hillary Clinton coalition reconstructed quickly? We believe the death doom destruction strategy is the way to go. Our strategy has the added benefit of punishing swiftly the treacherous “leadership” who gifted Obama the nomination.

There are several things we do know for sure.

1. The Republican Party adapted with aplomb to the historical moment.



Republican candidates include many women, at least three soon to be powerful Latino/as, a bunch of African-American candidates, another Indian-American governor, lots of young candidates, and another Vietnamese congressional candidate.

We’ll also see half of the 2012 Republican ticket get elected tonight.



2. The Obamination Party has a proven record of selling out women, racial animus towards minority candidates who are Republicans (see the Sanchez race), continuous race-baiting and lurid sexism and misogyny (see O’Donnell).

We also know what a vapid creature Barack Obama is. On this crucial day Obama interviews with American Idol host Ryan Seacrest. Perhaps this is his way of auditioning for a post 2012 American Idol panel job.

We also know what a cowardly creature Barack Obama is. Knowing of the pending destruction of all the idiots who believed him when he said “this time you have me” (you know we’ll have much more of this pearl of a statement in the next two years) Obama reset his schedule to flee the country this Thursday.

Obama Dimocrats will be losing their jobs as elected officials, lobbyists, or staff and they will be in great pain and looking for jobs. The wounded Obamorans will be shell-shocked and desperate for leadership. Barack Obama will be on a luxurious junket.

As to that luxurious junket let no one forget Obama’s insults directed at the Punjab and Hillary Clinton.

We also know that Sarah Palin is now a political force of nature. Tonight is indeed a triumph for the Palin Rogue wave which will take down many Dimocratic ships.

Just before the election returns come in we will post a new article so we can all comment on what is happening. We’ll have lots of updates.

The first polls will close and the first batch of answers will begin to come in at 6:00 p.m. ET:

“How to spot a GOP wave on Election Night: Watch the early races in IN-9, GA-8, and KY-6… [snip]

Polls close completely at 7:00 pm ET in five states with a handful of key races: Georgia, Indiana, Kentucky, South Carolina, and Virginia. (And we’ll begin to see returns in Indiana at 6:00 pm ET, when many polling places close in the state.) Let’s start with IN-9, which has become the quintessential swing district because Rep. Baron Hill (D) lost the seat in ’04, but won it back in ’06 and was re-elected in ‘08. This race is No. 42 in our House rankings — right about the number the GOP will need to take back the House (because Dems will likely pick up two to four seats). So if this race is called for Hill’s challenger, Tea Party-backed Todd Young, you know it’s going to be a good night for the GOP.

Looking at IN, GA, and KY: Another place to watch is GA-8, because if Republicans are winning it, they could very well be on their way to a gain of 50-plus seats. Rep. Jim Marshall (D) won that district with just 51% in 2006 and 57% in ‘08. The other early House contest to watch is in KY-6, which could forecast a big GOP tidal wave if Republicans are winning it — or are even running close. The congressman representing that district is Ben Chandler (D), who won his previous contests with 65% (in ’08) and 85% (in ’06). Other races to watch in that first hour: GA-2, IN-2, SC-5, VA-2, VA-5, VA-9, and VA-11. And closing at 7:30 are the key races in North Carolina (NC-2, NC-7, NC-8, NC-11), in Ohio (OH-1, OH-6, OH-13, OH-15, OH-16, OH-18), and in West Virginia (WV-1, WV-3). If Republicans are winning a majority of these 20 races, say hello to Speaker John Boehner.”

More on what to watch out for HERE.

Some quick news appetizers on this day:

The TelePrompTer will hold a news conference tomorrow morning before flying off to have POTUS embarrass America. Perhaps someone will ask him about his jabs at East-Asian Americans and those from the Punjab.


Unhinged race-baiters roam the streets.
Barack Obama has done nothing but provide misery for African-Americans but some don’t get that simple fact.

Whatever happens tonight, the era of Barack Obama is over.
We respectfully disagree with usually “brilliant” thinkers that don’t understand this. The Obama era lasted a few seconds until he bungled the oath of office – from there is was a bungle-fest. His entire government fell apart right from the very beginning with the stimulus and by May it was clear Bungles was in trouble. By Tea Party Summer, it was clear Bungles was a catastrophe for America and the Dimocratic Party.

Today is a referendum on Barack Obama – the era of Barack Obama is over.

Yup, the era of Barack Obama is over and it appears that some donors want him to know it:

Key donors have told the White House that the president should decide for certain whether he’s running for re-election by the end of December. Should Mr. Obama’s approval ratings slip further next year, there’s talk that some donors may call on him not to run, or promote an independent candidacy by New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg.

It could go further. Pennsylvania Gov. Ed Rendell, a former chairman of the Democratic National Committee, told MSNBC in July that a primary challenge to Mr. Obama “is really possible,” especially if he were to go back on his pledge to begin withdrawing U.S. troops from Afghanistan next year.”

Today is not the day for this discussion but bookmark the 1992 race when Harkin took down George H.W. Bush then Bill Clinton won the election. We could also get into the weeds and discuss Bobby Kennedy and Gene McCarthy, but that would be inappropriate for today.

Anybody wonder why Hillary Clinton is 9000 miles away and saying about Obama “I think he was a little envious that I am here.”?

More to come on this Election Day.

  1. We do hope someone asks Obama tomorrow about his Punjab digs at Hillary in 2008.

    Shadowfax posted this earlier:

    http://www.ndtv.com/article/india/us-to-spend-200-mn-a-day-on-obama-s-mumbai-visit-64106

    The US would be spending a whopping $200 million (Rs. 900 crore approx) per day on President Barack Obama’s visit to the city.

    “The huge amount of around $200 million would be spent on security, stay and other aspects of the Presidential visit,” a top official of the Maharashtra Government privy to the arrangements for the high-profile visit said.

    About 3,000 people including Secret Service agents, US government officials and journalists would accompany the President. Several officials from the White House and US security agencies are already here for the past one week with helicopters, a ship and high-end security instruments.[snip]

    The area from Hotel Taj, where Obama and his wife Michelle would stay, to Shikra helipad in Colaba would be cordoned off completely during the movement of the President.

  2. He’d better not run. If the Democrats ever want me to vote for one of their ilk ever again, they will run Hillary in 2012. Period. Hillary or nothing. I’ve said this before: if she doesn’t want the job, they need to sweeten the pot until she does. Hot, naked, well-built interns carrying her through the WH in a sedan chair. A jacuzzi in the Oval Office. (Filled with champagne.) Shoulder rubs on the dot at lunch every day. Whatever it takes.

    If she says no, they sweeten it further.

    If she still says no, they can get up on the roof and jump for all I care.

  3. Great article Admin: I’ll be getting my updates here from work, although it will kill me not to post, but I’ll expect you all will keep me entertained…MOP never fails to make me laugh!

  4. OMG! I just saw a video of Obama handing out candy to children for Halloween….he was wearing one of Jimmy Carter’s sweaters. What a dope this guy is….ROTFLMAO!

  5. Here in New York city,it seems democrats are safe. I hear Ds sweep.

    I voted against 2 x 4 Schumer, but I could not bring myself to vote against Hillary supporters Cuomo and Gillibrand as a thank you for their support to Hillary.

    I hear that they are sure to win along with traitor Schumer.

    I heard Obama is giving a speech tomorrow…WTF! Why can’t he understand we don’t want to see his ass on TV all the time.

    ——————
    His speech will be his way of sticking it to the repubs before things even get started. In other words, once again none of this is his fault and it definitely won’t be his fault in the next two years.

  7. Glad to see so many of you are voting. I’ll be taking it easy on the mountain top the way admin says. No sense voting here.

    I’d like to thank turndown for the quotes from 1912 TR speech. It’s sad to note that TR lost that election, but nice to know the Repugs once had a human side to them, and a deep-down urge to serve the common man, before they went whole hog for the corporate interests TR was decrying. In fact, if I remember correctly, TR ran as an independent in 1912, didn’t he?

    Which brings me to a point that’s been egging me all through this run-up to the tsunami. That is, there’s been so much pos and neg talk about Bill Clinton’s contribution to the Dem cause this year, and how so many Dems wanted him to campaign for him and didn’t want Ø.

    But nobody anywhere, either here or elsewhere on the net, nor in the media nor in the press, nor in Repug circles, has anyone called upon Dubya to campaign for them. It just seemed natural for Bill to campaign, and Ø too, but Dubya was nowhere to be seen. Nobody asked him to a fundraiser, or a campaign event, or for his opinion on a talk show or anything. It’s like I’m wondering if maybe he’s dead?

  8. jewezey, No, he is not dead, he just threw out the ball for one of the World Series games and he’s been going to the DFW airport to greet returning Vets from Iraq…the news just doesn’t cover anything but the “ONE”.

  9. Jeswezey, Bush is scheduled for his comeback next week. His book is coming out and it is personal and sympathetic. Republicans did not want Bush to distract from the economic issues in these elections. Republicans did not allow social issues to distract from the economic issues either.

    But rest assured, after the Obama disaster, George W. Bush will be back with a new book and a new look. Bush should say “Thank you Obama – you make me look great and effective.”

  10. Hillary or nothing. I’ve said this before: if she doesn’t want the job, they need to sweeten the pot until she does. Hot, naked, well-built interns carrying her through the WH in a sedan chair. A jacuzzi in the Oval Office. (Filled with champagne.) Shoulder rubs on the dot at lunch every day. Whatever it takes.

    ——–

    I can stamp that……. 😆

    Hot dudes waiting on her hand and foot, and when Obama calls, telling him,

    “Madam President is busy fixing your mess!

    Go get a real job, we are revoking your ex-Presidential perks!”

  11. The women, as I said before, should have walked out of the convention. When will they learn that their issue is that important, equality. The good old boys will let you into the group, but they will never play the game with you as you are not a male.

  12. Our strategy is to drive him out of the race by voting against every Democrat/Dimocrat in 2010. Those that disagree with our strategy have to come up with a better one. Our’s is working:

    http://hotair.com/archives/2010/11/02/reuters-poll-shows-bleak-prospects-for-obama-ii/

    The big surprise from the latest Reuters poll doesn’t come from its 6-point GOP spread among likely voters in the generic Congressional ballot, which more or less tracks with every other pollster the past few weeks. With that spread, Reuters predicts a GOP caucus of 231 seats, which would be a 54-seat pickup, slightly outpacing 1994 and render a huge rebuke to Democrats. That news is almost old hat by now, but the poll shows long-term prospects of a second term for Barack Obama looking very, very poor:

    Obama’s own job approval ratings continue to lag. The poll found that 45 percent of Americans approved of the way Obama is doing his job, versus 51 percent who said they disapprove.

    In a sign that Obama has some work to do to improve his fortunes ahead of his 2012 re-election campaign, 52 percent of those surveyed did not think Obama will win re-election in 2012, the poll found. This included 34 percent of Democrats and 75 percent of Republicans.

    “It’s a bad environment for Democrats, but it’s two years away from the general elections. You have to take that number with a grain of salt,” said Young.

    Drive him out of the race.

  13. Admin: I like your policy because their’s something to be said for “revenge”. I enjoyed it. I guess I’m kind of sadistic…LOL!

  14. Mike Hukabee on Fox is saying Hillary is smart to be in Cambodia. He is making jokes about how Hillary is as far away as possible from this Obama disaster. Didn’t we say that last year?

  15. Upset or a motivation to go vote?:

    http://blogs.wsj.com/washwire/2010/11/02/coons-camp-expresses-turnout-worries/

    Most polls have predicted that the closely watched Delaware Senate race between Democrat Chris Coons and Republican tea-party favorite Christine O’Donnell was going to be anything but close. One poll last week had Mr. Coons up by 10 points, while all the others gave him a far more comfortable margin.

    But Democrats in Delaware remain skittish.

    In a noon email alert to supporters, Coons campaign manager Christy Gleason said close monitoring of voter turnout in the state’s 41 representative districts showed “lower turnout in New Castle and Kent counties than we’re comfortable with.”

    To win, Mr. Coons will have to get heavy support from Democrats and independents in New Castle, the state’s most populous county. In the primary, Ms. O’Donnell drew heavy support from the state’s other two counties, Kent and Sussex, which skew more to the right.

  16. Fox loves to point out how smart Hillary is, unless she runs for President.

    All the old excuses of why this superstar woman isn’t qualified enough is gone now…what will they come up with next time, that she is Obama’s second term?

  17. Shadowfax
    They’ll find something, they always do. She can out smart the republicans, but she never expected her own party would knife her in the back and thats where she went wrong…she is much wiser now!

  18. JanH,
    I can’t stand the other stations other than Fox. CNN is sickening and MSNBC is just plain convulsive!

  19. Thanks for for posting that video of Clinton and Palin. That is the first time I heard her say she would take away a woman’s right to choose at the federal level.

    ===================

    I havent’ seen this. My perhaps wishful memory is of her being quoted a while back as saying that taking away some abortion right would require a US constitutional amendment. Which is different than saying she would support such an amendment.

    I never had the context but I hoped it culd be seen as a way to brush off the anti-abortionists by saying it would be impractical to get such an amendment, and anyway stop bothering her about it.

  20. This is my opinion on Roe vs. Wade. I was young of child bearing age when this law came to be. Everynight of TV there was some young girl dying from a botched abortion. When this started happening to rich girls, Senators and Congressman’s daughters the law was passed with bipartisan support. Botched abortion in those days covered the whole spectrum of race, and social status.
    So these youngsters who don’t want to have this law anymore…let them get rid of it and when their daughters die from botched abortions, they’ll see what their foremothers went thru to get this law in. So I say freak them, let them abolish it, its the only way they will learn, much like what we’ve had to do with the kool-aid drinkers.

  21. A complete absence of johnsons as far as the eye can see … and what a lovely sight it was! (Points to anyone who gets that quote.)

    ===============

    Heh. Well, I can make a guess.

  22. The legality of abortion ties pro choice women to the Democratic party.

    What a shame, it should be legal and left up to a woman to make this decision, not Congress, not generic religion.

    More women would become Rethugs if the Rethughs left it legal and STFU about it.

    Women like Boxer would not have another term if the legality wasn’t a threat.

  23. The legacy of abortion is also a joke — the Democrats have been destroying it slowly for decades, while laughing up their fucking sleeves at us for getting so panicked about it. They think our septic death is a fucking joke. The love the idea of all those bitches getting what’s coming to them for fucking men who aren’t them.

    They are pure evil, and I want them GONE.

    Maybe now they will cough the fuck up on it — now that they will find out that their bitch will walk.

  24. From Krugman:

    Remember, algebra was invented by MUSLIMS!

    Need I say more?

    After all, when I write 2+2=4, what am I using? Arabic numerals! And what was the key invention behind Arabic numerals? Zero! So when I talk about the zero lower bound, you know what it means: I’m trying to impose Sharia law on the US economy..

  25. If BO is primaried, I believe it will be from Dean the Scream. I read somewhere that his speaking engagements are will be increased after today’s election.

  26. My brother used to live in Saudi Arabia and knew someone who tried to teach a university math class there in the capital. He tried teaching them statistics — took a pair of dice out of his pocket and got confronted by a mob of outraged students because they were satanic artifacts that he had brought into their class.

    They may have invented algebra, but that was a looooooooooooong time ago, dude. They seem to have forgotten it.

  27. I have been hearing Donald Trump may seek the Presidency…well shit…then I guess Madonna and Kiss should try too!
    Donald at least is a business man, part-time Hollywood star.

  28. confloyd: “This is my opinion on Roe vs. Wade….”

    Perhaps a minor point, but Roe vs. Wade was not a law, rather a SCOTUS decision based on the 9th & 14th amendments to the Constitution. Doe vs. Bolton was a companion decision of the Supreme Court that I think was more comprehensive.

    No law was passed that we have to defend, and no law can be passed that can override these decisions. However, the SCOTUS itself can overturn the decision, in which case abortion could be outlawed on a state level as it was before, or at the federal level. I think it was in 2007 that the SCOTUS decided in favor of a ban on “partial birth” late-term abortion.

    As things stand now, to outlaw abortion, a constitutional amendment would have to be passed. Sarah Palin pointed that out. I don’t know if she would support such an amendment.

    Sarah Palin on Abortion

    Republican Governor (AK); ; nominee for Vice President

    Use my daughter Bristol as a teaching tool for others

    Q: Do you think that we should talk about birth control with our teenage sons and daughters?
    A: Yes. Use me as the example of why you should, even more admittedly. My daughter, of course she is 18 years old, but has really been forced to grow up very quickly now and starting her own family and you know, life has changed so quickly for her. But if we can use this, and if my daughter Bristol can use her story as a kind of teaching tool for others, then so be it. Let us do that.

    A: I do. And I believe that individual states can best handle what the people within the different constituencies in the 50 states would like to see their will ushered in an issue like that.

    Abortion should be states’ issue, not federal mandate

    Q: Why is Roe v. Wade a bad decision?
    A: I think it should be a states’ issue not a federal government-mandated, mandating yes or no on such an important issue. I’m, in that sense, a federalist, where I believe that states should have more say in the laws of their lands and individual areas. Now, foundationally, it’s no secret that I’m pro-life that I believe in a culture of life is very important for this country. Personally that’s what I would like to see further embraced by America.

    While mayor, Wasilla charged rape victims for rape kits

    Sarah Palin’s hometown required women to pay for their own rape examinations while she was mayor, a practice her police chief fought to keep as late as 2000.
    Former state Rep. Eric Croft, a Democrat, sponsored a state law requiring cities to provide th examinations free of charge to victims. He said the only ongoing resistance he met was from Wasilla, where Palin was mayor from 1996 to 2002. “It was one of those things everyone could agree on except Wasilla,” Croft said. “We couldn’t convince the chief of police to stop charging them.“
    Alaska’s Legislature in 2000 banned the practice of charging women for rape exam kits — which experts said could cost up to $1,000. Some supporters of Palin say they believe she had no knowledge of the practice. But critics call it ”outrageous“ and question Palin’s commitment to helping women who are the victims of violence.
    Alaska has the worst record of any state in rape. The rape rate in Alaska is 2.5 times the national average.

    Safe Haven bill: allow surrendering newborns without penalty

    Governor Palin Signs ‘Safe Haven’ Bill Into Law: Bill allows parents to surrender newborns without prosecution
    Palin signed House Bill 29 into law today. The “Safe Haven for Infants Act” passed the State House in May and passed the Senate on Jan. 19. The bill allows a parent to safely surrender a newborn child without the threat of prosecution, as long as there is no evidence the infant has been physically injured.
    Without penalty, a parent may leave the infant in the physical custody of a peace officer, physician or hospital employee, or a volunteer or employee of a fire station or emergency medical service. “All children deserve to begin their lives in a loving, protective family,” Governor Palin said. “When that fails, it is our job as a state to make sure that children are protected.”
    The Commissioner of Health and Social Services said, “Unfortunately, abandonment of infants has occurred in Alaska. It is our hope that the passage of the ‘Safe Haven’ act has ended that forever.”

  30. This was a post that I just saw. It’s in response to a question regarding her/his earlier post that greatly detailed nØbama’s narcissism.

    Here’s how I recommend we deal with Obama until 2012:

    Ridicule and scorn.

    And by that, I mean that the G.O.P. needs to adopt a strategy that speaks directly to Obama’s narcissistic heart, particularly in public debates in 2012.

    Narcissists are NEVER wrong, and they cannot stand to be corrected or criticized. Even if they can contain their temper publicly, internally it makes them seethe with rage.

    The GOP leadership in Congress, should they take control (fingers crossed!) needs to make ridicule and criticism a strategic policy.

    In other words, When Obama says something stupid (and he will), they need to call him on it. Boehner and Cantor should make sure they get “caught” (wink-wink) making fun of Obama in a “private discussion”. When they discuss him on TV, they should always make a point to chuckle and roll their eyes.

    The effect of all this will be to solidify in the public’s mind that Obama is NOT someone to be taken seriously…I mean, c’mon, Wolf! Look at how bad he screwed up his first two years! Snort-chuckle-snort!

    The effect this will have on a narcissistic personality is incalculable. Obama may act like he’s unaware of it, but trust me, he’ll know all about it, and as a good narcissist, he’ll be keeping score and plotting his revenge.

    The ultimate objective would be to get Obama to publicly and brazenly lose his cool. The best venue for this is a Presidential debate. His opponent (Romney, Palin, Gingrich, Bolton, whomever) needs to have brass balls, and need to know when to “pounce”.

    It happened to Obama once before in a debate with Hillary and he flipped her the bird while pretending to scratch his eye. It was a supremely revealing look into the Peter-Pan mind of a narcissist, and of course, the mainstream media tried to overlook it.

    Just imagine the reaction if the GOP candidate could say SOMETHING to Obama that would ultimately cause him to blow his top on camera in front of millions of people.

    So…There are ways to deal with this guy. We just need to make sure that the people whom we elect know how to do it, and are willing to see it through.

  31. New Black Panther Seen At Polling Place
    No Voter Intimidation Reported Tuesday At Poll

    PHILADELPHIA – Fox 29 News ran into a New Black Panther Party member outside as the same Philadelphia polling place where voter intimidation was reported two years ago. He was handing out a sample ballot for the Democrats.

    Click Here To See The Sample Ballot He Was Handing Out

    The man was seen outside the polling place in North Philadelphia was wearing a pin that indicated his party affiliation, along with a black hat, sunglasses and leather coat.

    We spoke with the man briefly ( see video to the left) and asked him why he was standing in front of the poll doors. His response was, “no comment.”

    We then asked him if he was at the polls representing the New Black Panther Party and if his panther label button was a symbol of the party. We received no answer.

    A check with Philadelphia election officials revealed no voter intimidation reports at the polling location related to the man.

    But we were able to obtain one of the sample ballots the man was handing out to voters. It was a sample Democratic ticket with Joe Sestak, Dan Onorato, Bob Brady and Curtin Thomas on the ballot.

    In footage obtained by Fox News back in 2008, two members of the New Black Panther Party stood outside the same polling place shaking a Billy club and allegedly intimidating voters.

    The case was ultimately dropped by the Department of Justice after President Obama’s administration came into power, although controversy surrounding the incident’s handling has persisted.

    Just last month Attorney General Eric Holder was defending the Justice Department’s performance on the matter, saying the top career person in the civil rights division made the decision to seek an injunction against one person.

    Over in Ohio, Third Base Politics sends word that the Board of Elections director says Cuyahoga County — the one that includes Cleveland — is on pace for 430,000 out of about 978,000 registered voters, roughly 43 percent turnout.

    For perspective, the county made up almost all of Obama’s margin of victory in Ohio in 2008. Obama won 458,422 votes in this county in 2008, and beat McCain by 258,542 votes; Obama’s margin in Ohio was 262,224.

    Democrats Ted Strickland and Lee Fisher needed big margins out of Cleveland, and so far, it’s not coming together for them.

  34. Just saw Rubio on Cavuto. He was good.

    Now Gov. “There will be blood in the streets if Obama is not the Nominee” Wilder is on Cavuto saying he uses the book “Game Change” in his classes, and is making excuses for Obama’s messaging – or as he said “propaganda”

    Admin – look for the video. It’s good.

    BBL

  35. Gov Wilder was just on Cavuto and said, in effect, that the fraud has to come out tomorrow and apologize and say he will be working for the next ( last ) 2 years for the American people. He said further the doesn’t know why he is trying to get the young vote out today, the election is over. He was of course blaming the advisors, not the fraud himself.

    If he wasn’t working for the American people the last 20 months, who the hell was he working for? That’s the question I wanted answered.

    Biden rallies Delaware Democrats ahead of election
    November 1, 2010 – 7:10pm
    By RANDALL CHASE
    Associated Press
    WILMINGTON, Del. (AP) – Vice president Joe Biden is urging fellow Delaware Democrats to get voters to the polls for the midterm elections.

    Biden headlined a Democratic rally in downtown Wilmington on Monday evening that drew about 200 people.

    He was confident Democrats would hold on to the Senate seat that had been his for more than 30 years.

    Joining Biden were New Castle County executive Chris Coons, who is considered the favorite in his U.S. Senate race against Republican tea party favorite Christine O’Donnell.

    Former lieutenant governor and Democrat John Carney also appeared at the rally. He faces Republican Glen Urquhart for the seat held by Rep. Mike Castle, the Republican who gave up his spot to run for Senate and lost the primary to O’Donnell.

  37. Even stenographer JournoLister Marc Ambinder gives up on tonight’s results (though Ambinder still has a bagful of excuses):

    http://www.theatlantic.com/politics/archive/2010/11/what-im-hearing-absolutely-nothing/65606/

    Like many of you, I’m reading the collected anecdotes of high turnout in Democratic urban areas, and then the inevitable stories about said turnout anecdotes from Democratic-leaning publications, and then the Tweets, and then more stories, etc. The point of these anecdotes is convince people who haven’t voted that their vote won’t be wasted. It’s a noble goal.

    But privately, senior Democratic officials with access to the boiler room data say that they’ve seen nothing to indicate that these anecdotes are evidence of a Democratic surge, or will lead to a surprise in the story tonight. That’s not to say that there won’t be a surprise, just that nothing Democratic officials are seeing actually gives them real confidence that there will be one.

    If anything, the early boiler room data makes the Democrats quite nervous.

    We do hope someone asks Obama tomorrow about his Punjab digs at Hillary in 2008.

    The US would be spending a whopping $200 million (Rs. 900 crore approx) per day on President Barack Obama’s visit to the city.
    ——————————

    This is going to backfire later this week when people turn their attention to his trip.

  39. I think the GOP is gonna pick up Connecticut and Delaware tonight, something is afoot, the campaigns are bricking themselves apparently at turnout and the overall turnout for Democrats is BAD.

  40. An upset, or keep hope alive propaganda?:

    http://www.nationalreview.com/battle10/251967/mcmahon-aide-could-be-biggest-upset-brian-bolduc

    Shawn McCoy, a spokesman for Linda McMahon, tells Battle ‘10 he’s hearing the same things about turnout in Connecticut: It’s higher in Republican areas and lower in Democratic ones. “I think that having those two congressional races over there [in the fourth and fifth districts] — having them be close and having them drive turnout is a big boost to us,” McCoy says. “We’re seeing good turnout in precincts all across the state, especially Trumbull. I know there are some long lines there.”

  41. Admin its possible, McMahon and Blumenthal are not that far apart poll wise, a sharp shift could tip it to her easily.

    if the polls are right and the enthusiasm gap is nearly 20% and the gap generically is 12%, then all bets are off in all races.

  42. Upset or propaganda?:

    http://www.washingtonexaminer.com/opinion/blogs/beltway-confidential/democratic-congressional-campaign-manager-turnout-isnt-where-we-need-it-to-be-in-our-strong-areas-106537098.html?utm_source=feedburner+BeltwayConfidential&utm_medium=feed+Beltway+Confidential&utm_campaign=Feed:+BeltwayConfidential+%28Beltway+Confidential%29feed&utm_content=feed&utm_term=feed

    I would caution you not to read much of anything into anecdotal evidence, but the campaign of Rep. Steve Kagen, D-Wis., sent out the following email:

    Dear XXXX,

    We have just been going over the morning voting numbers – and turnout isn’t where we need it to be in our strong areas.

    This race is going to be a squeaker – and every vote will count.

    Please call your friends, family and neighbors and make sure they vote. If you can get five of your friends to vote, we will win.

  43. Prelim exits: About 4 /10 say they are worse off financially than 2 years ago. Intense worry about economy.

  44. Maine turnout:

    http://www.necn.com/11/02/10/Light-early-election-turnout-seen-in-Mai/landing_politics.html?&blockID=3&apID=705a3d2c2deb42d49059ecf0586799f4

    PORTLAND, Maine (AP) — Officials in Maine’s largest cities are reporting light to moderate turnouts in early morning voting as Mainers go to the polls to settle a bruising five-way race for governor, heated races for the U.S. House and a contentious casino proposal.

    Officials in Portland and Bangor say turnout is light. In Lewiston, an election official described early turnout as steady.

    Secretary of State Matthew Dunlap forecasts up to 55 percent of eligible voters to cast tallies.

    Republicans are confident as polls show Republican Paul LePage leading the race for governor and put the GOP within striking distance of Democratic Reps. Mike Michaud (MISH’-oh) and Chellie Pingree.

    In the five-way governor’s race, independent Eliot Cutler and Democrat Libby Mitchell were battling LePage. Independents Shawn Moody and Kevin Scott trailed far behind.

    ___________________________

    I’m in Cleveland, too, Admin. Voter turnout is very low. It is somewhat surprising because there is voting going on for a new county government– newly implemented structure. The Dems are huge here in Cuyahoga County but have been plagued with corruption and those being indicted and leaving office.

  47. Dim Dick Blumenthal is worried as well:

    (WIREUPDATE) – Low supporter turnout for Richard Blumenthal has forced the campaign to send out an alert Tuesday afternoon urging supporters to get out to the polls.

    http://www2.dailyprogress.com/news/2010/nov/02/4/voter-turnout-reports-149-ar-623987/

    Update: The City of Charlottesville Office of Voter Registration is reporting a 25 percent voter turnout as of 1 p.m., or 1,765 of 7,059 registered voters.

    Update: The Albemarle County Department of Voter Registration and Elections said county voter turnout at 1 p.m. was 32.89 percent, or 22,773 of 69,235 registered voters.

    Voters across Central Virginia were keeping polling places busy this morning as they make a decision between incumbent Rep. Tom Perriello, D-Ivy, and challenger Robert Hurt, a Republican state senator from Chatham.

    Three constitutional amendments also are on local ballots. The Albemarle County Department of Voter Registration and Elections said county voter turnout at 9 a.m. was 14.9 percent, or 10,178 of 69,235 registered voters.

    The next measure of voter turnout in Albemarle is set for 1 p.m. In Crozet’s Brownsville Precinct, held in a gymnasium of Brownsville Elementary School, voters were lined up about 75 people deep around 9:30 a.m., and poll workers were busy setting up a fourth polling station to accommodate the crowds.

  49. Thanks Shenanigans for the confirmation on what is happening in Cleveland. Jimmy’s arrest must have hurt Dim turnout too.

  50. anecdote….Youth voters have abandoned the ship

    from Minnesota

    My son is a poll worker at a UW Madison polling station. Says the turnout is WAY lower than 08. Hope and change must have gone past its ‘best if used by’ date, lol. Heavy turnout in the ‘big three’ Republican Counties, Waukesha, Ozaukee, and Washington. No info on Milwaukee turnout yet, but all bodes well for GOP right now

  51. The Massachusetts secretary of state is reporting that turnout is heaviest in the suburbs — exactly where Republicans need it to be if Charlie Baker is going to upset Deval Patrick in the governor’s race. If there’s such a thing as a Republican enclave in Massachusetts, it’s the South Shore area, and one South Shore town already had 25 percent turnout before noon.

    Also, a local PBS reporter appearing on my radio station this morning said that the voters she talked to in a downtown Boston precinct were breaking two-to-one for Charlie Baker.

    Meanwhile, Barney Frank and his partner were spotted sitting alone, and looking very unhappy, in a Brookline diner around mid-morning. Sean Beilat was out stumping for votes.

  52. http://politicalticker.blogs.cnn.com/2010/11/02/first-exit-polls-economy/

    The economy isn’t just the most important issue to voters this year – with unemployment hovering around 9.6 percent, it’s roughly twice as important to them as the other top issues of concern combined, according to early exit polls.

    Sixty-two percent of voters name the economy as their most important issue this year. Health care ranks a distant second, at 19 percent. Illegal immigration and Afghanistan follow at 8 and 7 percent.

  53. Saw a report on another blog that someone’s daughter voted on-campus at UVA. Dead as a doornail. He’s lost the children.

  54. Thanks HillaryForTexas and MoonOnPluto for the information. Soon the anecdotal will be replaced by the numerical.

  55. Please remember that all these turnout numbers pretty much assume that all the Dem registered voters are voting for the Dem. Which ain’t necessarily so. Which makes it even worse.

  56. Dick Morris (on Hannity now): “I would not write off Delaware and Connecticut for the GOP.

    He knows somethings afoot.

  57. Wow

    The First Reactions to the Exits, if Not the Exits Themselves

    I don’t have the exits, but folks I know in the media and political worlds are getting their first glimpses.

    Indicator Number One: I am told that one Democratic strategist, helping a television network with Election Night analysis, just declared that the Democrats were experiencing something on par with mass murder. The GOP counterpart looked at the same numbers and concluded the Democrats are, so far, not getting the urban turnout they need; suburban and rural areas are seeing big turnouts.

    Indicator Number Two: One Republican who is seeing early indicators in Florida says, “if this holds, we win everything.”

  58. moon, it may level out some as returns come in, but it’s entirely possible this isn’t just a wave, or even a tsunami. It’s a freaking near Extinction Event.

  59. H4T lol, i couldnt think of any better gift for Obama tomorrow morning to wake up to the worst loss in the history of the country.

    Things could be so bad, that the party will abandon Obama overnight.

  60. RICHMOND, Va. (AP) – Gov. Bob McDonnell’s father, John F. “Jack” McDonnell, dies of Alzheimer’s disease.

    Condlences Governor, I would expect we wont see McDonnell tonight on tv then.

  61. moon, from your lips to God’s ears. I’d like to see them crawl on broken glass to Hillary to restore the party.

  62. Says the turnout is WAY lower than 08. Hope and change must have gone past its ‘best if used by’ date, lol.
    *********
    At the “lunch hour” prime voting time, there were two other voters at my very blue polling place. The poll workers looked bored and rather despondent. Last three election cycles, the polls were busy and the workers smiling and interactive.

  63. OT, but Huffinpuff has a new video out by a rap group mocking conservative women.

    There is a fine line between tasteful political comedy and crossing-the-line crudeness, and the Huffington Post’s new song “My Girl’s A Republican” just leaped over that line. With lyrics such as “Dick Nixon sucking lips” and “she made her oil money last, and now I’m tapping it,” even the most liberal among us could agree that the attack on Republican women is downright revolting.

    Hailed as an “ode to right-wing ladies,” the three and a half minute song and video by Rap duo “It’s The Real” (and proudly displayed on the Huffington Post Web site) does nothing but smear conservative women like Christine O’Donnell, Michele Bachmann, and of course, Sarah Palin. The HuffPo write up on the “tribute to conservative women” song claims “it does a pretty solid job of both mocking and admiring right-wing conservatives.”

    You know what? Hillary is the only Democrat I could ever conceive of voting for again. I am sick and effing tired of the nastiness, misogyny, and general snide superiority of the left. I want nothing to do with them, ever again. I cannot believe that I used to hang out with these hateful, hateful people. Seriously. They are scum.

    Wisconsin: Johnson (R) defeats Feingold (D)

    ABC exit poll

    Male (49%) – voted for Democrat 43% – voted for republican 55%
    Female (51%) – voted for democrat 49% – voted for republican 48%

    If these numbers are really true – it means a 11% republican lead in the generic ballot.

  68. Exit Polls: Record Conservative Turnout
    —Ace

    Should be a good night.

    Also, on Drudge, the exit polls say some Senators are now former Senators. But this is what you figured:

    Arkansas: Boozman (R) defeats Lincoln (D)
    Ohio: Portman (R) defeats Fisher (D)
    North Dakota: Hoeven (R) defeats Potter (D)
    Wisconsin: Johnson (R) defeats Feingold (D)
    OH and WI were sorta close, I guess, but we already assumed those wins. It will be interesting to see the margin — if it’s greater than the 8% we were figuring, it’s on like Donkey Kong.

  69. I voted around ten this morning and the firehouse parking lot was packed!

    Later, I went north, toward Albany, to interview someone for a non-election related story in a Stewarts shop and who walks in but Scott Murphy.

    he didn’t look too happy.

    I’ve been hearing GibsoN has a great shot.

    I’m going out to buy a bottle of wine even though I’m not supposed to drink.

The Secretary also met with Vietnamese leaders.

    From Hanoi, the Secretary traveled to Hainan Island, where she had a meeting with her counterpart in the Strategic and Economic Dialogue, State Councilor Dai Bingguo.

    On October 30, the Secretary departed for Cambodia where she met with government and civil society leaders in Phnom Penh and visited Angkor Wat, a UNESCO World Heritage site. She continued on to Malaysia on November 1 and met with senior officials, discussed our enhanced ties, promote trade, and discuss educational exchanges between our countries.

    On November 3, Secretary Clinton will travel to Papua New Guinea to meet Prime Minister Sir Michael Somare and other senior government officials, women leaders and environmental experts. This stop is part of a larger process of enhancing U.S. engagement in the Pacific. She will continue to New Zealand, to meet with senior government officials, including Prime Minister John Key and Foreign Minister Murray McCully, on a wide range of issues that are important to the forward-looking trajectory of our bilateral relationship. On November 6, Secretary Clinton will travel to Australia to join U.S. Secretary of Defense Robert Gates, Australian Foreign Minister Kevin Rudd, and Australian Defense Minister Stephen Smith in Melbourne for the 25th anniversary of the annual Australia-United States Ministerial Consultations (AUSMIN) to discuss regional and global security issues.
