Don’t Forget To Change Your Clocks On Saturday And Your President On Tuesday

Our clever title today comes via Foxiladi14. We have been busy making phone calls to get behind the scenes information and fortunately our information confirms a lot of the optimistic reports as to a Romney victory on Tuesday.

Our comments section has been superb and we are borrowing from there today. Those who are voting not based on skin color but on content of character there is this stark difference – “uniter, no red states, no blue states” Obama says vote for “revenge” but from Romney: Vote for love of country, not revenge:

For Republicans/conservatives who don’t believe Hillary supporters will vote for hope and change with Romney we are alerted to this Politico report from the comments section:

“Former Hillary aide backs Romney

Mitt Romney has been making a pitch for bipartisanship in the closing days of the race, and this morning rolled out an endorsement from Hillary Clinton’s former Senate state director, Gigi Georges:

For most of my life, I’ve been an active Democrat. I am proud to have worked for President Bill Clinton and then-Senator Hillary Clinton, and, during that time, I saw firsthand what can be accomplished by strong, bipartisan leadership. I know what it means to work across the aisle on issues that are important to the American people. And that’s why I am supporting Mitt Romney. Governor Romney has a plan to restore the prosperity this country deserves and expects. He will work with people of good will no matter what their party, and he will pursue the policies that are in the best interest of our country, no matter who proposes them. That’s what President Obama promised to do four years ago. But like so many of his promises, bipartisan cooperation is just another one he has broken. We can’t have four more years of failed policies and two parties that can’t work together. We need the change Mitt Romney is offering.

For people in New York politics, Georges, who now lives in Boston, is a familiar name and face – she was also the executive director of the state Democracy Party when Clinton was in office. Romney’s been talking up Hillary Clinton for months on and off on the trail, and the final effort to appeal to some of her voters in places like Ohio has continued.

As we know all too well, it is difficult to reject your party’s presidential nominee because you also alienate political friends, social friends, contacts and networks you worked for a lifetime to achieve. Gigi Georges has, like us, done just that and deserves praise for putting country above corrupt party. It might not seem like such a difficult decision for some – but to throw away a lifetime investment in friends and political associates over principles is not such an easy choice to make for many. Thanks Gigi. And thanks to the many African-American Hillary supporters and others speaking against Barack Obama and his cronies.

If you need inspiration and to keep up the fight when you are losing hope – read Michael Barone’s assessment as to election race results.

  1. Palin was bringing big crowds toward the end in 2008 but the big difference now is that Obama is not bringing back his crowd.

  2. oTURD’S campaign falling apart. Mitt is getting in their head, they are now falling on the swords to ask why Mitt menioned “revenge”… LMAO OTURD went off the Teleprompter again and once again we get to see what he’s really made of. His thuggery on full frontal assault.

    You can’t make this shit up!

  3. PM, only thing I’m seeing is Drudge. Of course they are not covering it if it ain’t gonna garner Oturd a vote or two. They were all gungho when he was there for the photoop and the bj by Christie.

  4. These storms go to show that you better prepare yourself for the long haul. Water, food, alternate heat, gasoline and BULLETS for the guns. Buy guns if you don’t own one too.

  5. From Norma’s link: {notice how they ascribe Lizza’s words and motive to Bland even though Band does not say it himself. Fuck the media.. fire them on Tuesday.}

    Top Clinton confidant Douglas Band has said that he will vote for Republican Mitt Romney, according to a report in The New Yorker, apparently a move to strengthen Hillary Clinton’s position in the Democratic Party.

    “By some measures, a defeat for Obama in November would leave Hillary the undisputed leader of her party and propel her toward the Oval Office that much faster. At least one of Clinton’s closest advisers seems to be backing that strategy,” writes Lizza. “According to two people with direct knowledge, Douglas Band has said that he will vote for Romney. Band declined to comment.”

  6. Watching “Red Rocks” Romney/Ryan video. Tears streaming 🙂 These guys “GET IT”. This is real people, this is the most important election of our time. This is not about Paul and Mitt, it’s about America! This video is soooooo touching.

  7. Yes admin, it is difficult to vote against your life long party, but for those of us that know what a beast the tarnished cow is and what he did to our Hillary…we have no other choice.

    I have NO ONE but my online friends to talk openly about by political views. I live in such a blue state that I can’t count on both hands how many friends I have lost since 2008. The friends I have kept, I have had to reduce my political views towards them. Will any of them vote for Mitt with the info I have given them for four years, I don’t think so, some of them may not vote for Prez….that’s the best I can hope for.

    Also, if Mitt wins, I will have to contain my glee at work or sparks will fly around angry obots.

  8. ROFL, endorsement rally for Warren in MA except there were more politicians than voters. May be lil ole grape is on to something. MA might just vote for Romney again.

  9. Rasmussen has it all tied up BUT when I read his column this jumped out at me

    Per Scott Rasmussen people just don’t “feel” they are not as well off as they were four years ago! This guy has got to be smokin some serious dope! Everything in my life costs more now and my pay isn’t increasing. I’m deeper in now than ever so HOW can he come up with this horseshit.

    Wonder what Oturds got on him LOL

  10. dot48,

    Rasmussen is hedging his bet. There must be something to what he says or the presidential race would be no race at all. The ones in the tank are Gallup. Typically they run 10 points higher than the Rasmussen Approval Index, but recently that has gotten to be more like 15.

    The Rasmussen index is based on the “strongly” percentages so one would not expect it to be identical, but it is just too far off. This implies that there is a 5 point bias int he liberal polling. We will see on Tuesday.

    Maybe I am watching Fox too much but I say Romney by 5.

  11. Update to my storm story.

    I went back to Lowe’s today after checking out kerosene heaters in other stores like Home Depot and Wal-Mart, ready to buy.

    Yesterday there were a half dozen of the model I wanted.

    Today there was only 1 left.

    Salesman said a guy from LI came in after I left and bought the other 5 saying he hadn’t had heat for days and with the temps plunging below freezing the next few days he was afraid his kids would get hypothermia.

  12. Interesting that the Clinton folks are going for Rom. Guess Bill’s apparently, deliberately unconvincing campaign speeches for Obama could not even inspire his and Hillary’s close friends to vote for the 0 !?! LOL
    And, not content with just going against Bill’s (insincere) calls for voters to support the POS, his good friends decided to go public with their rebellion and tell the public of their intentions to vote Rom. LMAO
    Maybe it was Obama proclamation that “I’m Bill Clinton” that turned them off. Doesn’t look as if Bill has done O very much good. lol

    this quote from Barone’s piece linked above:

    ” True, Americans want to think well of their presidents and many think it would be bad if Americans were perceived as rejecting the first black president.”

    Hopefully, with this election we’ll be getting away from this ridiculous concern about appearing politically correct. Allowing this country to be destroyed by an (1/2) African American president, who is incompetent and who appears to have little loyalty or concern for American and Americans, would only prove that we’re stupid – not that we’re not racists. How the hell does it support blacks and benefit them to keep Obama in office. We all live in the same country. We all have to have jobs. We all need affordable gas. We all need a functioning government. Presumably, blacks, whites, Hispanics, Asians people of all nationalities and ethnic backgrounds all need these things.

    The best way Americans can show they embrace diversity in this country, and respect the rights of all Americans, regardless of color, is to elect honest, capable public servants who are loyal to America, and who have America’s best interest at heart.

    This divisive racial shit is out of control. It’s almost as bad as during the Civil Rights era. Black leaders from that time are struggling to remain relevant, and are inciting anti-white sentiment among blacks – just to put that POS who has done little for blacks, back into office. They want to pretend they’re returning to the days of “we shall overcome”. Hell, Baracks installment as POTUS was not enough to prove blacks “overcame”? We have to keep letting him be potus, or he’ll take his friends, and turn them against white America? Really?

    If we, as a country, want to prove we are not racists, we have to reelect the POS for 4 more years? If we don’t do so, we will have demonstrated that we’re racist? Hell, I didn’t think I was, but if this is what it takes to prove I’m not, then just color me effin’ racist.

  13. I’m just “not feeling” the Oturd love out there. Of course here in coal country I never figured to find any but it’s all over the country I’m reading how down and out people are and how sick they are of the whole administration. Leadership matters.

    I just don’t think it’s that close at all.

    I lean more to a landslide myself but with that small percentage point of undecideds I just can’t see why people are still buying Oturds bullshit.

    I ain’t that hard to know you’re worse off now than 4 years ago. DUH

  14. WaPO has some kind of editorial on this I hear..

    http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424052970204712904578090612465153472.html?mod=WSJ_Opinion_LEADTop

    The Ambassador to Libya and three other Americans were murdered September 11 in Benghazi. That we know. But too little else about what took place before, during and after the attack on the U.S. diplomatic mission is clear.

    The White House says Republicans are “politicizing” a tragedy. Politicians politicize, yes, but part of their job is to hold other politicians accountable. The Administration has made that difficult by offering evasive, inconsistent and conflicting accounts about one of the most serious American overseas defeats in recent years. Unresolved questions about Benghazi loom over this election because the White House has failed to resolve them.

    • Why did the U.S. not heed warnings about a growing Islamist presence in Benghazi and better protect the diplomatic mission and CIA annex?
    [snip]
    • What exactly happened on the day of 9/11? During the over six hours that the compounds in Benghazi were under siege, could the U.S. have done more to save lives? What was President Obama doing and ordering his subordinates to do in those fateful hours?
    [snip]
    • Why has the Administration’s story about what took place in Benghazi been so haphazard and unclear?
    [snip]

  15. Was reading over on another blog and it still amazes me that so many equate wealth of a Republican candidate to automatic theft of his fortune. To so many libs who are indeed wealthy of the wealthiest, if it’s a R then of course they had to steal it to get it.

    Shakes head

  16. If Gallup’s projection is accurate that Romney leads Obama by 13 with voters who plan to vote on election day and that early votes comprise 30% of all votes,then Obama is toast. He needs at least a 30% lead in the early voting to overcome this huge lead for Romney. From reports on early voting, this certainly is not happening. Romney is over-performing and Obama is under-performing on the early votes.

  17. Just had the strangest phone call but upon discussing it with hubby (who answered it) we figure out what was happening. Phone rings, he answers it, I hear him say “this, is “his name”. I hear him say “that’s my wife” and then he says “yes, my wife’s already done”. I go bouncing through the house cause I wasn’t sure what the call was about, looked on caller id and it says Private Caller. He said they asked, is this “so and so R residence”, he then answered yes this is “mr so and so” and they say “can we depend on your vote this year” of which he then says “my wife has already voted and I plan to on Tuesday”. That was the entire call, nothing on who you plan to vote for.

    So I figure they are mining the data base to try to figure out some people who they will try to vote here in WVA.

    Once being told I aready voted and he was going to vote they crossed our names off the list.

    Pisses me off that he answered a Private Caller as well. Doesn’t set well with me

  18. “when I am elected and take office, the economy will still be stagnant but I am not going to waste any time blaming my predecessor” Romney line, sounds very Reaganesque.

  19. Sorry reposting from last thread as i had not realised a new one had gone up………..
    …………………………………………………..

    Oh look PPP now changing its tune as Tuesday approaches…..

    We have now released polls in 5 blue states over the last 24 hours- MI, WA, OR, CT, and MA- where Obama is doing 10+ pts worse than 2008#

    The big drops for Obama in all these blue state polls help explain why the popular vote is still so close even as Obama looks good in the EC

    Tells me everything i need to know.

    PPP saying Obama doing 10+ points worse than 2008…..sorry but game over if they are sayng that because if he’s doing 10+ points worse in Blue states, Swing states will fall easily.

    ———————————————————

    In Iowa, Romney is running 3 pts better in early vote than Bush did in 2004 when he took the state.

  20. What if you held a rally and forgot to tell anyone? Just too funny.
    ____________________________________________________

    CLEVELAND, Ohio — Legendary performer Stevie Wonder this morning expressed his love for Cleveland during a get-out-the-vote rally at Cleveland State University.

    His love went largely unrequited.

    Fewer than 200 people showed up to watch Wonder perform a handful of his hits at the early voting event in support of President Barack Obama.

    Most of the people had learned of the event just hours before the 9:30 a.m. start time. Some just happened to be in the area and followed the live music.

    Campaign volunteer Ken Johnson asked who in the crowd had voted early before introducing Wonder.

    Nearly every hand went up.

    Wonder took the stage at about 10:30 a.m.

    “I do a song. You go vote. You come back. We do some more music,” he said before opening with “Sir Duke.”

    No one left to vote after the first — or any — song.

    A shuttle meant to take voters to the nearby Cuyahoga County Board of Elections left empty after Wonder’s final song, “Superstition.”

    Obama for America Ohio, which hosted the rally, informed its nearly 34,000 followers on Twitter about the event around 10 a.m.

    “Perhaps it wasn’t advertised properly, but the people who are here are fired up,” said Bill Milhoan, of Mentor.

    Milhoan, who said he supports Obama, was one of the few people in the crowd who have not already voted.

    “It would be disingenuous to say I am here because of Obama,” he said. “How do you pass up a chance to see Stevie Wonder?”

  21. Breaking : According to Pew, self-identification of voters has gone from D+12 in 08 to D+5 today. At best expecting Dems a D+1-2 advantage on Tuesday but looking more like even or R+

    Obama screwed.

  22. When you vote on touch screen vote machines, make sure your choice comes up right before you hit the final confirm button. Lots of complaints about poor calibration on these machines. Most stories are always Romney’s vote coming up as Obama’s. I don’t know what the story with that it. But we can make sure that our choice shows up right and if it does not bring it to the people’s attention.

  23. Too funny!! Brent Budowsky is not only clueless, but DESPERATE thinking Hillary voters will save The Tin Calf! The comment section is a must read for all the smack down he gets from Hillary voters. LOL!

    Hillary Voters Will Save Obama
    by Brent Budowsky

    President Obama will be reelected president by a narrow Electoral College margin for three reasons.

    First, when autoworkers and auto companies faced a 1930s-style depression and Mitt Romney proposed a vulture bankruptcy that would have destroyed Ohio for a generation, Barack Obama was there for them, and next week I believe Ohio voters will be there for him.

    Second, words cannot fully express the power, clout and credibility of the passionate and determined support for President Obama by a man whom history will rank among the great presidents and a grateful nation now applauds as the prosperity president, who has gone by the name of the Comeback Kid, and called himself the man from a place called Hope, who barnstorms the nation on behalf of Barack to battle for a future that neither Bill nor Barack nor Hillary nor the men and women who support them will ever surrender.

    And third, in the spirit that the last shall be first, the great X factor of this campaign, the secret advantage of Democrats next Tuesday, which is not today highlighted on RealClearPolitics, or discussed on Fox News, or bannered by Matt Drudge, or even acknowledged by the Obama White House, is that a giant rescue mission for the Obama campaign and the Democratic Party is being led beneath the radar of the commentariat class of American politics by …

    The Hillary women!

    I predict that the voter turnout among women who most admire Hillary Rodham Clinton is being underestimated in the turnout models of all major pollsters, and if I am right by even a small percent this will shake the foundation of a razor-thin election.

    The Hillary women! By this I mean much more than Hillary Rodham Clinton herself, who has overcome in her life the most hostile slanders and defamations from her political opponents with dignity and grace and brilliance, who came within a fraction of becoming the first female president and may well shatter this iron ceiling four years and several days from today, who is a worldwide inspiration for women everywhere and a global champion of human rights for women and men and the poor and the hurting and the dispossessed and the hungry and the ill in nations everywhere.

    When I use the phrase “the Hillary women” I mean more than the brilliant and powerful women from her inner circle, of whom there are many, and more than the many women she considers her friends, whether they are in the 1 percent or the 99 percent, of whom there are even more.

    No. When I use the phrase “the Hillary women” I mean the female CEOs and construction workers, the female law professors and kindergarten teachers, the female basketball players and Rhodes scholars, the female waitresses and concert pianists, the housewives and female human-rights activists, the women who plow the fields and sweep the floors and serve in the Senate and compose the symphonies and are awarded Bronze Stars in the military and gold medals in the Olympics and proudly wear the badges of the Girl Scouts and the local police and, this is important, the men in their lives who love and respect and admire them and support their dreams coming true, as they return these sentiments to the men (and women) in their lives!

    When I write about “the Hillary women” I mean women who believe they have a birthright as Americans to equal opportunity to advance and achieve, and equal rights to be paid based on their talents and ingenuity, and not their gender.

    When I write about “the Hillary women,” I mean older women who feel they have spent a lifetime earning the security and protection of Social Security and Medicare and do not want these things taken away by partisans or ideologues or extremists.

    When I write about “the Hillary women,” I mean younger women whose dream is not only that Hillary can become president, but that THEY can become president, or CEOs, or world-champion athletes, or homemakers, or whatever choices they exercise their right to make.

    When I write about “the Hillary women” I mean women (and men) who dream of an America where no candidate and no party ever argues that any woman can ever be raped in any way that is called “legitimate,” and that no man who is ever a candidate for any office from any party can ever claim that our Lord and Savior wishes any woman to be pregnant after she was raped, and then try to force that view upon her using as their weapon the Supreme Court of the United States.

    Yes indeed, I believe that these women will vote in larger numbers than the polling models now suggest. They have the power to decide by their turnout the future of the nation. If I am half-right, enough of them will exercise that power by voting to reelect President Obama because whatever his imperfections, on every matter described in this column, he has been there for them and they will be there for him, and others like him, until every barrier is broken and every ceiling is shattered and America becomes everything that America can be for all men and all women.

  24. Have had welfare and the government dole on my mind lately. When I was raised and this is how I raised my kid as well, we were raised to know that we needed to work and pay taxes, my dad would have shamed me if I ever would I have found myself in a situation to even want welfare. Now I think people don’t think that way anymore. I hear people say, oh, it’s just the government” .. when we had the dericho here in WV, people on food stamps who werent even in the storm applied and received several months of food stamps, all kinds of other help just by applying and lying.

    Applying and lying just seems the easy way out.

  25. i will attend mass tomorrow. very curious as to what is said regarding this tuesday’s election. it will be worth it, though i will be fighting traffic diversions due to BO and BC’s campaign event on main street sunday.

    i recall a similar event labor day 2007. bill, hillary and about 5,000 people on the state house lawn. how things (and me) have changed.

  26. …did not read that Bodowsky article word for word…but read enough to know he has no idea…

    …what we should all do is send him an email that says something like…

    no brent, you have got it all wrong…hillary’s women are taking O’s advice…and getting their revenge…karma is a b—-!

    Obama Hit By Storm Backlash
    By Dick Morris on November 3, 2012

    Natural disasters usually follow the same political trajectory: First the incumbent experiences a bounce as he tours the impacted area, shows his concern, and pledges help to his beleaguered constituents. But then reality sets in and the shortages, delays, mishaps, deaths, and devastation becomes apparent and people turn against the incumbent.

    George W. Bush had his Katrina.

    And now Barack Obama has his Sandy.

    Last week, Obama asserted a kind of ownership of the storm by touring New Jersey in the now infamous embrace of Republican stalwart Governor Chris Christie. Now that we are all appalled by the lack of food, gas, water, heat, and the basic essentials of life throughout the storm zone, Obama’s government doesn’t look so good anymore.

    Why didn’t FEMA stockpile food, water, and gasoline? We had a week’s notice to prepare for Sandy. There was no shortage of time. Did the government not realize that people needed to eat, drink, and drive?

    All throughout America, we are asking these questions of our television sets as we watch the evolving story of human misery.

    Meanwhile, Obama has resumed the campaign trail, pounding the opposition in the same relentless and partisan style which he used before the storm. When Obama said that voting was “the best revenge,” he threw away whatever presidentiality he displayed in touring storm damage earlier in the week.

    As he entered the last week before the Congressional election of 1994, President Clinton returned to the U.S. after having presided over the signing of a peace treaty between Israel and Jordan. He called me on his return and asked where he should campaign? Which incumbent Democrats should he try to help get re-elected?

    I told him he should not campaign for any of them.

    “No, you don’t understand,” he explained. I just came back from the Middle East and my ratings are up ten points. Before, I would have hurt the candidates I campaigned for, but not now. Now I can help them.”

    “Your ratings are up because your trip hyped your presidentiality. Now, if you start campaigning, you’ll look like a politician and your ratings will come down again. You’ll end up doing more harm than good to those you are trying to help.”

    He disregarded the advice and lost both houses of Congress in the elections.

    Now Obama is making the same mistake. By campaigning, particularly by using the same harsh partisan rhetoric which has characterized his campaign, Obama is dragging down his ratings and with it his chances of victory.

    Particularly when we see the juxtaposition of the mounting disaster in New York and New Jersey and the President out on the campaign trail attacking his opponents, we realize that Obama is a candidate before he is president, more worried about his second term than the welfare of his constituents.

    In yesterday’s polling numbers, I saw a rise in Obama’s ratings and warned that the race was far from over. Now, we see him throwing it all away and resuming his crash into a single term presidency.

  28. In what could prove to be a brilliant campaign move, the Romney campaign hid details of a Sunday campaign appearance in Pennsylvania until after the Obama team released their final campaign schedule. Now, a new poll by Susquehanna Polling and Research shows Mitt Romney leading Barack Obama by four points in the Keystone State, 49-45%. Critics have been dismissing Susquehanna’s tight polling for over a month based on little more than the fact that a Republican presidential candidate hasn’t won Pennsylvania since the 1980s. George W. Bush came close, however, in both of his campaigns. Republicans also took the US Senate seat and Governor’s mansion in 2010, despite Pat Toomey being called “unelectable” by the media.
    If Romney wins Pennsylvania, the race is over. If the Obama campaign and the media ignores Susquehanna’s polling, they do so at their own peril.
    ****************************************************
    While the left called Romney’s move into Pennsylvania “desperate,” it could prove brilliant. If Romney wins Pennsylvania, as Susquehanna suggests he is on the verge of doing, he no longer needs Ohio, Wisconsin, Nevada, Iowa, or New Hampshire. Of course, if he does win Pennsylvania, he stands to win some of those states, too. At this point Romney isn’t just looking for a win. He is looking for a mandate.

  29. Have to laugh at this….
    Man came out of early voting place today and was asked “How long did you wait to vote?”
    He answered “Four years!”

  30. We have been tracking the BO campaign finances and 2012 has been a repeat of 2008. The grafter has over $200 million in ” unitemized” donations, most of which are illicit. Here is his latest FEC report http://query.nictusa.com/cgi-bin/dcdev/forms/C00431445/827978/ showing $214 million in unitemized donations as of mid October.

    Here are the 2008 election predictions by the various pollsters versus the actual:

    Ooops. Second attempt.

  34. Moon, Oturd is losing 🙂 Just a few more days till victory for America. Hang on, the rides bumpy, take the Pepto, cross every limb and pray like never before. As I said earlier, the only way Oturn wins is to steal it AND

    Just saw on Huckabee that possible Ohio not counting provisional voting for 10 days????? WTF Romney better have armed guards around those ballots 24/7

  35. Englewood, Co

    Mrs Romney is so beautiful 🙂 She will be such a fantastic first lady. She opens for Mitt, it’s very cold and I think he might sent her off to get out of the wind.

    Mitt is handling a great closing here.

    Go Mitt!

    Counting down ALL of Oturds lies and promises he did not keep.

    If people here this 🙂 Yes, Romney will win.

  36. From Day One, I’ll pass legislation to get American’s back to work 🙂 Nailing it again. Don’t know crowd size but they are ROARING approval. Enthusiastic response. Big “Believe in America” homemade sign in back of Mitt 🙂 🙂 Big Ann Romney sign too, homemade. Love it!!!

    DownPayment on Fiscal Sanity Act … cut spending! Mitt says he will take responsibility for the office on Jan 1.

    THIS IS FANTASTIC FOLKS. HE IS CLOSING REALLY STRONG, GREAT AND I’M PROUD TO HEAR THIS LIVE.

  37. S, I’m with you on ignoring Budowsky. He’s got Kool-aide in his veins. Seems I remember some pretty nasty articles about Hillary from him, back in 2008. When it comes to that primary from hell, most of us Hillary supporters are not really into forgetting and forgiving. And, we sure as hell are not into Obama and the progs who worship him – Idiots one and all.

  38. Hey folks, we got power back an hour ago!

    Woo hoo!!!

    Now let’s kick Obummer outta 1600 PA Ave. pronto!

    He can vacation in Hawaii for years. Plenty of golfing, and all sorts of handsome young men to carry his golf bag.

  39. Just back from dinner in Boca. My friend , a dentist, voting for Romney. He is cocerned
    about the electoral map, particularly Ohio. Interesting that Romney appears good in Fl
    without Rubio. I just wonder who else he could have picked to help more in Midwest?
    D+ 1-2 we could win, D+5 is a concern.

    NYT’s Nate Silver and Charles Blow today try to spin the “Obama Comeback”. Hey, didn’t you guys just try to pretend that Romney’s surge never happened, that the first debate had negligible impact, or that Obummer did good enough in the later debates to nullify that advantage??

    If so, why are you now tacitly admitting that Obama has “surged back” into a tie???

    And Nate Silver tries to spin the dubious polls into Ohio being in the bag for Obama, making Mitt’s electoral path an “inside straight”. And he throws in a plethora of state polls that deviate from reality: Obama sprinting away in Iowa, etc. etc.

    Nate also must be reading Big Pink. He specifically addresses those who question his methodologies as his “special sauce”, which is the exact term I used about a week ago.

    Then Charles Blow today outlines Obama’s surge in 4 aspects, among them Obama’s momentum referring to Nate Silver’s article. Typically echo chamber reporting. “NBC reports that the NYT’s Nate Silver calculates on polls of MSNBC / ABC/ CNN / WashPost that Obama is gaining momentum”.

    It’s enjoyable to watch these fuckers put on a fake brave face, yet see their armpits drenched, and hey, looks like they also peed their pants.

    Not pretty.

    woo!! hooo!! you’re not kidding. i was only out for half a day and was doing cartwheels when the power came back on. yes. i’m a sissy.

    glad to hear you’ll be warm tonight.

  42. Back to Nate:

    http://fivethirtyeight.blogs.nytimes.com/2012/11/03/nov-2-for-romney-to-win-state-polls-must-be-statistically-biased/#more-37099

    Look at the Popular vote chart on the right side, third graph from the top. Average shows Obama with 50.6% to Romney’s 48.4%.

    But wait!!!! I thought ALL these articles found it befuddling that the incumbent hasn’t won with under 50% support in the past several decades, and that in the 10 or so major national polls, Obama hasn’t cracked 50% in ANY of them? So how does NYT/Nate get 50.6%????

    Ohhhh, I get it, you throw in all those funny polls; those with some allegiance, or incentives for Obama to be re-elected.

    Just checking, I thought this was New Math…

    Debunking Nate Silver’s special sauce:

    Nate Silver’s secret sauce
    October 28, 2012
    By PoliPundit

    He assumes that Obama will just lose three states from 2008 – Indiana, North Carolina, and Florida.

    Every other swing state will go to Obama – Virginia, Ohio, Colorado, Iowa, Wisconsin, New Hampshire, Nevada, Pennsylvania, Michigan, Minnesota…

    But Romney is tied or ahead in at least two of those states, according to the RCP average: Virginia and Colorado.

    So Silver isn’t just using the RCP averages to count Obama states; he’s then screwing with those averages to get the results he wants.

    In other states, the latest polls show the race tied – Ohio, Wisconsin, and Michigan (where a Democrat pollster shows a 47-47 tie.) Unless undecideds suddenly swing towards the incumbent, these states would be Romney’s, no?

    Not to mention the surprisingly strong showing for Romney in states like Minnesota. And New Hampshire, where an Obama lead of 1.4 percent is almost entirely due to a week-old outlier poll showing him ahead by 9.

    Against this backdrop, it’s reasonable to question Silver’s “model.” What secret sauce is he using to entirely discount the tied polling in Virginia and Colorado, the latest tied polling in Ohio, Wisconsin, and Michigan, and Romney’s surprising strength in other states? Or is he, like the paper that employs him, simply ignoring inconvenient data like the Libya disaster and Rasmussen polling? He owes it to his readers to tell them.

  44. BLOW JOBB?

    Charles Blow has a JOB at the NY Times. Supposedly,he’s a “columnist”. But his title should read, “Partisan Hack”.

    Notice the reference to polling, and also a quiet concern about a last minute “seismic shift” (drip drip drip about Benghazi, or Obama’s FEMA Katrina/Sandy blunders).

    Is Romney Unraveling?
    ================

    By CHARLES M. BLOW
    Published: November 2, 2012

    Time is running out for Mitt Romney.

    According to the latest polls, the most likely outcome of Tuesday’s election is that Romney will lose. If he does, it will likely be a bitter pill to swallow. He would have come so close only to have fate and circumstances step in at the final hour and give President Obama a boost.

    How is Romney losing it? Let us count the ways:

    1) The economy continues to improve. The argument for electing Romney hinges on a sour economy and his experience as a businessman with the expertise to turn it around. But, on measure after measure, the economy seems to be getting better.

    A Commerce Department report released last month found that housing starts jumped 15 percent in September — the largest surge in four years.

    The unemployment rate dropped below 8 percent in September and the October jobs report released on Friday was stronger than expected.

    Furthermore, according to a Gallup report also released Friday:

    “The U.S. Payroll to Population employment rate (P2P), as measured by Gallup, was 45.7 percent for the month of October, up from 45.1 percent in September, and reflecting the highest percentage of Americans with good jobs since Gallup began daily tracking of U.S. employment in 2010.”

    Romney needed gloom and doom on the economy, but Obama got some rays of sunlight.

    2) Romney’s momentum is maxing out. There was a moment after the first debate when it appeared as if he might have a legitimate shot at winning. He surged in the polls. His forlorn followers found their faith. There was hope for their candidate. Momentum begot momentum. But it peaked a couple of weeks ago, and evidence amassed that the momentum has evaporated.

    Even so, the Romney campaign seemed to believe it could stick with the momentum meme even after that momentum had stalled because it had been effective at rallying the troops.

    As The Times’s Nate Silver wrote Friday about arguments touting Romney’s chances in the election:

    “A third argument is that Mr. Romney has the momentum in the polls: whether or not he would win an election today, the argument goes, he is on a favorable trajectory that will allow him to win on Tuesday. This may be the worst of the arguments, in my view. It is contradicted by the evidence, simply put.”

    Silver averaged the national polls of likely voters in his database and found that “there is not much evidence of ‘momentum’ toward Mr. Romney. Instead, the case that the polls have moved slightly toward Mr. Obama is stronger.”

    That’s right, it is the Obama campaign that has the rightful claim to having momentum.

    3) Hurricane Sandy. The hurricane devastated the Northeast, which also happens to be the media center of the country. This diverted people’s attention from the rancor of the campaign trail, and they saw Obama being presidential in his response to the storm.

    They also saw bipartisanship. Obama was embraced by Gov. Chris Christie of New Jersey, who was the Republican National Convention keynote speaker. He won an endorsement from Mayor Michael Bloomberg of New York City, an independent.

    For his part, Romney transformed an Ohio rally into a “storm relief event.”

    4) Truth and lies. Evidence continues to emerge that Romney is one of the most dishonest, duplicitous candidates to ever seek the presidency.

    He criticized Obama for telling then-President Dmitri Medvedev of Russia that he would have “more flexibility” to deal with sensitive issues between the two countries after he won re-election. Romney said this was particularly troubling given that Russia “is without question our No. 1 geopolitical foe.”

    However, according to a report on Friday in The New York Times, Romney’s son Matt recently traveled to Russia and delivered a message to President Vladimir Putin:

    “Mr. Romney told a Russian known to be able to deliver messages to Mr. Putin that despite the campaign rhetoric, his father wants good relations if he becomes president, according to a person informed about the conversation.”

    It sounds as though he was signaling that Mitt would do exactly what he had castigated Obama for: operate with “more flexibility” after the election.

    This is the kind of hypocrisy that just makes you shake your head in disbelief.

    According to a Gallup poll released on Wednesday, Americans expect Obama to be re-elected by 54 percent to 34 percent. Among those believing that Obama will win were most independents and almost a fifth of Republicans.

    I cast my lot with those folks unless there is a seismic shift in the next few days.

  45. To counter Blow’s assessments,

    1. “the economy continues to improve”.

    Tell that to the average voter.

    2. “Romney’s surge is maxing out”

    Okay, NOW you finally admit there was a surge. But conveniently, it’s done with. Funny, front page of your own paper TODAY talks about Obama fizzling campaign: lack of energy, distracted candidate hobbled with his own record, tiny crowds, small crowds crammed together for pictures to make them not look so EMPTY, etc.

    Then he whips out THE TRUTH GUN: Nate Silver’s 99.999999675% accurate polling.

    3. “Hurrican Sandy helped O look presidential”

    Until it didn’t. “Revenge” as a reason to vote??? Puh-lease.

    4. “Romney is one of the most dishonest, duplicitous candidates to ever seek the presidency.”

    And Obama = Ghandi??????

    Come off your high horse, Charlie. Every politician can be accused of “lying”, and there are fact-checkers who need fact-checkers. There is no black and white TRUTH and LIE. Get over yourself.

    Was Obama a big fat liar when he said that he opposed the Iraq war, until he was a US Senator when he changed his mind? Or when as candidate he said “I’ll close Gitmo”, until he was living at 1600?

    So Charles, we read your four pillars of Why Mitt Will Lose, and we laugh at it as we roll up your newspaper to roll us a big fatty, to celebrate Obama’s Early Vacation.

    rgb, they are all going to sound like Baghdad Bobs pretty soon, Romney up by 1 in Minnesota!!!
    &&&&&

    Nate Silver has the whole NorthEast “dark blue”…I doubt Little Nate has Minn. in Romney’s camp.

    Truly, MN even being close seems to portend something much larger for Romney thane either side expected…

    NJ, where I live, Hmmmm, we have a Repub guv, and the rural areas are solid Repub, but there was depressed turnout in 2008 and a surge of Dems.

    And you know what, when Dems say they’ll vote, they may not be voting the way pollsters expect (across the line). Big Pink perfectly exemplifies this, but we here knew this shit four years ago. It took four years of people seeing “Obama in action” (that is, inaction, “deer in the headlights”) to realize, “Who ever let this one term junior senator become the nominee of a major party, let alone get voted in as president????”.

  47. Those polls are making me more nervous. Florida looks good but what about Ohio, Wisconsin , Virginia? NV elected Harry Reid so I don’t have much faith and while the
    MN numbers are close, unrealistic to think we win there. This is so stressful.

  48. I am playing with the Real Clear Politics Map and it’s fun to see the combinations one can make to reach 270. For example, if Rom wins Minnesota, VA, NC, Fl, Colorado & Iowa, he doesn’t have to win Ohio, PA or Wisconsin. He would reach 273 vs O 191

    By the way, here is the link to Rom ahead in Min by one:

    Man came out of early voting place today and was asked “How long did you wait to vote?”
    He answered “Four years!”

    Awesome!

    Two young dudes drove by me today in a white sports car, warm outside so our windows were rolled down. They saw my Hillary 2008 and 2012 bumperstickers on my back window and one guy asked me, with a twinkle in his eye, is Hillary running this time? I said, “I only wish….”. He said, “I was thinking that next time she will run.”

    As they drove off all confident of their voting choice, I saw their new Obama/Biden sticker on their car.

    I hope they get so emotionally sick on Wednesday morning that they blow chunks.

    So “all critical FL” in the bag not good enough?

    VA is NOT going Obama, but if you want to hear it from MSM, you’ll have to wait until the election is over.

    MSM will NOT let on that Obama is behind here, there and everywhere. They are PAID to make you nervous, and you oblige them, basically saying, “MSM, you are doing your job incredibly well.” They are hoping to douse Repub / Indy enthusiasm. Why??? Because they are being paid to. Not outright…that would be too risky. But people’s “careers” hinge on “pleasing the boss”, and that boss has his bosses to suck up to as well.

    So if you want to fret about MSM spin, hey, it is a free country, do what you wish.

  52. I am thrilled about Fl. It is pretty amazing if it holds. I just looked, reluctantly, at RCP.
    The swing states are so close, but lean slightly for Obama. (i.e. CO 0.6% Obama).
    I hope things break the way many here are predicting. I promise to never look at another poll when we win.

  53. My comments are in “moderation hell”, but the latest Pennsylvania poll shows the race even at 47% each

  54. Charles Blow wonders about last minute shifts.

    How about revenge, as in “best served cold”?

    http://washingtonexaminer.com/obama-campaign-struggles-to-explain-revenge-remark/article/2512500#.UJXfC2duZjg

    CINCINNATI — A seemingly offhand utterance from President Obama has turned into a major point of contention between the two campaigns, as Team Obama tries to explain what the president meant when he told a crowd of supporters that “Voting is the best revenge.”

    It happened in Springfield, Ohio Friday as Obama was discussing the economic policies of the 1990s. When Obama referred to “a Senate candidate by the name of Mitt Romney,” the crowd booed his opponent’s name — certainly not unusual reaction at political rallies of both parties. Then Obama said, “No, no, no — don’t boo, vote. Vote. Voting is the best revenge.”

    It was an ugly and small-minded moment, especially for the end of a campaign when candidates usually try to stress larger, optimistic themes. Romney incorporated the “revenge” line in his speech in Ohio Friday night, saying that while Obama advises revenge, he, Romney, wants people to vote “for love of country.”

    As Obama traveled to northern Ohio Saturday morning, campaign official Jen Psaki was asked about the “revenge” remark. According to a White House pool report, Psaki said Obama had been speaking in the context of Romney’s “scare tactics” in Ohio. The Republican is “frightening workers in Ohio into thinking, falsely, that they’re not going to have a job,” Psaki said, according to the pool report. “And the message [Obama] was sending is if you don’t like the policies, if you don’t like the plan that Gov. Romney is putting forward, if you think that’s a bad deal for the middle class, then you can go to the voting booth and cast your ballot. It’s nothing more complicated than that.”

    The problem is, the president was actually not speaking in the context of Romney’s highly-controversial ads about bailed-out Chrysler adding production of Jeeps in China. In fact, Obama had not said a word about the Jeep controversy when he said “revenge.” His speech had touched on Hurricane Sandy, on the progress the American economy has made in the last few years, on his national security accomplishments, on the choice Americans will make on November 6, on Bill Clinton’s record — on a lot of things, but not on Jeep.

    And even after the “revenge” remark, it took Obama six paragraphs to get to his discussion of Jeep. The bottom line is, while it is impossible to know what was in the president’s mind, he simply was not talking about Jeep when he told voters that “Voting is the best revenge.”

    Below is the text of the president’s speech:

    THE PRESIDENT: Hello, Ohio! (Applause.) Thank you! How’s it going, Wildcats? (Applause.) There definitely are some Wildcats in here. (Applause.) You’re fired up! Are you fired up? (Applause.) Are you fired up? (Applause.) Fired up? (Applause.)

    Can everybody please give Alicia a big round of applause for the great introduction? (Applause.)

    It is great to see all of you! (Applause.)

    For the past few days –

    AUDIENCE MEMBER: I love you!

    THE PRESIDENT: I love you back. I do. (Applause.) I do.

    For the past few days, all of us have been focused on one of the worst storms in our lifetime. And everybody in Ohio obviously has been watching the images on TV. We are so saddened by those who lost their lives. We can only imagine what their families are going through, and our thoughts and prayers are with them.

    I had a call this morning with my emergency teams, and one of the things that I’ve emphasized to everybody on the East Coast — people all around the country want to send a message, and that is we will stand with folks in New York and New Jersey and Connecticut every step of the way until they have fully recovered. (Applause.) That’s a commitment we’re making to them.

    When I make those commitments, I don’t make those commitments just as President. I make those commitments on behalf of the American people. (Applause.) And what’s interesting is, during these kinds of crises, these disasters, as tough as it is and as sad as it is, we’re also inspired because we see heroes running into buildings and wading through water to save their fellow citizens. We see neighbors helping neighbors cope with tragedy. We see leaders of different parties working to fix what’s broken, not to score political points. We see a spirit that says no matter how bad a storm is, no matter how tough times are, we’re going to make it because we’re all in this together. (Applause.) We rise or fall as one nation and as one people. (Applause.)

    And that spirit, Ohio, has guided this country along its improbable journey for more than two centuries. And it’s also guided us and carried us through the trials and tribulations of the last four years.

    In 2008, we were in the middle of two wars and the worst economic crisis since the Great Depression. Today, our businesses have created nearly 5.5 million new jobs — and this morning, we learned that companies hired more workers in October than at any time in the last eight months. (Applause.)

    The American auto industry is back on top. (Applause.) Home values, housing starts are on the rise. We’re less dependent on foreign oil than any time in the last 20 years. Because of the service and sacrifice of our brave men and women in uniform, the war in Iraq is over. The war in Afghanistan is ending. Al Qaeda has been decimated. Osama bin Laden is dead. (Applause.)

    So we’re on the move, Ohio. (Applause.) We’ve made real progress these past four years. But the reason all of you are here today, the reason I’m here today, is because we know we’ve got more work to do. As long as there’s a single American who wants a job but can’t find one, our work is not done. As long as there are families working harder but falling behind, as long as there’s a child anywhere in this country who is languishing in poverty, barred from opportunity, our fight goes on. We are not finished yet. We’ve got more work to do. (Applause.)

    We’re here because we understand this nation cannot succeed without a growing, thriving middle class – (applause) — without sturdy ladders for folks who are willing hard to get into the middle class. (Applause.) Our fight goes on because America has always done best when everybody is getting a fair shot, and everybody is doing their fair share, and everybody plays by the same rules. That’s what we believe. That’s what you believe. That’s why you elected me in 2008. And that’s why I’m running for a second term as President of the United States. (Applause.)

    AUDIENCE: Four more years! Four more years!

    THE PRESIDENT: Now, in four days, Springfield, four days — (applause) — just four — four days for four years. (Applause.) In four days, you’ve got a choice to make — it’s not just a choice between two parties or two candidates. It’s a choice between two different visions for America. (Applause.) It’s a choice between going back to the top-down policies that got us into this mess — or the middle-out, bottom-up strategies that have gotten us out of this mess and are going to keep us going. (Applause.)

    As Americans, we believe in free enterprise, and we believe in the strivers and the dreamers and the risk-takers who are the driving force behind our economy. That’s how we create growth and prosperity, the greatest the world has ever known. But we also believe that our economy does better, our businesses do better, our entrepreneurs do better when everybody has got a chance to succeed; when all our children are getting a decent education; when all our workers are learning new skills; when we support research in medical breakthroughs and new technologies.

    We believe America is stronger when everybody can count on affordable health insurance and Medicare and Social Security — (applause) — when our kids are protected from toxic dumping and pollution; when our consumers aren’t being taken advantage of by credit card companies or mortgage lenders. (Applause.)

    We believe in a democracy where everybody’s voice is heard, where you just can’t buy an election. (Applause.) And we believe in politicians that understand that there’s some things the American people can do better for themselves — for example, that politicians in Washington, mostly men, shouldn’t be controlling health care choices that women can make perfectly well for themselves. (Applause.)

    For eight years, we had a President who shared these beliefs — a guy named Bill Clinton. (Applause.) And so our beliefs were put to the test. His economic plan asked the wealthiest Americans to pay a little bit more so we could continue to invest in our people, continue to invest in ideas and innovation, invest in our infrastructure. And at the time the Republican Congress and a Senate candidate by the name of Mitt Romney –

    AUDIENCE: Booo –

    THE PRESIDENT: No, no, no — don’t boo, vote. (Applause.) Vote! Voting is the best revenge.

    But at the time Mitt Romney said Bill Clinton’s plan would hurt the economy and kill jobs, it turns out his math back then was just as bad as it is today. (Applause.) Because by the end of President Clinton’s second term, America had created 23 million new jobs, and incomes were up and poverty was down, and our deficit became the biggest surplus in history. So our ideas were tried and tested, and they worked. Their ideas were also tried, and they didn’t work out so well.

    Because remember, in the eight years after Bill Clinton left office, they tried this top-down economics, they tried this “you’re on your own” economics. We tried giving big tax cuts to the wealthiest Americans. We tried giving insurance companies and oil companies and big Wall Street banks a free license to do whatever they pleased. We tried it. And what did we get? We got falling incomes, record deficits, the slowest job growth in half a century, and we ended up with an economic crisis that we’ve been cleaning up after ever since. (Applause.)

    So we tried our ideas — they worked. We tried their ideas — didn’t work. Now, Governor Romney, he’s a very gifted salesman. So he’s been trying in this campaign, as hard as he can, to repackage these ideas that didn’t work, the very same policies that did not work, and he’s trying to pretend that they’re change. Have you heard him? He’s going around saying, I’m the candidate of change. Except, when you look at the policies, they’re the same ones that didn’t work.

    Now, the thing is, we know what change looks like, and what he’s selling ain’t it. (Applause.) Giving more power to the biggest banks — that’s not change. Another $5 trillion tax cut that favors the wealthy is not change. Refusing to answer questions about the details of your policies until after the election — not change.

    Ruling out compromise, pledging to rubber-stamp the tea party agenda in Congress — that’s not change. That’s exactly what we need to change. Kind of massaging the facts when they’re inconvenient to your campaign — that’s definitely not change. That’s the oldest trick in the book.

    That’s what Governor Romney has been doing these last few weeks. You’ve been seeing it. Right here in Ohio, folks who work at the Jeep plant have been having to call up their employers because they’re worried; they’re asking if their jobs are being shipped to China. And the reason they’re worried is because they saw ads run by Governor Romney saying Jeep plants were going to be shipping jobs to China. Of course, it turns out it’s not true. The car companies themselves have told Governor Romney to knock it off. Knock it off. That’s what they said. (Applause.)

    GM — General Motors said, we think creating jobs in the United States should be a source of bipartisan pride. That’s what they said, and they’re right. I couldn’t agree more.

    And I understand Governor Romney has a tough time here in Ohio because he was against saving the auto industry. And the auto industry accounts for one out of eight jobs here in Ohio. So I get that it’s a problem for him. But you can’t run away four day, five days, six days before an election — run away from that position, especially when you’re on videotape saying the words, “let Detroit go bankrupt.” (Applause.) He said it.

    And you can’t try to scare people. Listen, this is not a game. These are people’s jobs. These are people’s lives. The auto industry, they spend a lot of money advertising and branding, and letting folks know that we’re back and we’re here in America, and we’re making American cars with American workers. And now, suddenly, you’ve got a guy going out there saying something that’s not true? You don’t scare hardworking Americans just to scare up some votes. That’s not what being President is about. (Applause.)

    When I first made the decision to rescue the auto industry, some of you don’t remember this, but it was not very popular. Even in Ohio and Michigan it wasn’t popular, but I knew it was the right thing to do. Betting on American workers was the right thing to do. Betting on American ingenuity and know-how and manufacturing, that was the right thing to do. And that paid off, and it paid off in Lordstown, and it paid off in Toledo. They’re creating new jobs right now — not in China — right here in Ohio, right here in United States of America. (Applause.) It was the right thing to do.

    And so, as you think about the choice over these next four days, and when you’re talking to your friends and your neighbors and your colleagues, one of the things that’s important about electing a President is trust — trust. Is somebody going to say what they mean and mean what they say? (Applause.)

    After four years as President, you know me. (Applause.) You may not agree with every decision I’ve made. Sometimes you may have been frustrated at the pace of change. But you know what I believe. You know where I stand. You know I tell the truth. (Applause.) You know I’ll fight for you and your families every single day, as hard as I know how. (Applause.) That’s why I’m running for a second term, because I want to fight for you. That’s why I need your votes, Springfield. That’s why I need your vote, Ohio. (Applause.)

    And I know what real change looks like, because I fought for it — right alongside you. And after all we’ve been through together, we sure can’t give up now.

    Let me tell you about the change we need over the next four years — real change. Real change is a country where every American has a shot at a great education. This school that we’re in is an example of a school that’s making incredible reforms. The Race to the Top program that we put together — this is one of the winners of Race to the Top — this school right here. (Applause.)

    So we know how to raise standards and recruit great teachers, and become more creative in the classroom. And our kids are going to succeed. But you can’t tell me that more teachers won’t help grow our economy. Don’t tell me that students who can’t afford to go to college should just borrow more money from their parents. That wasn’t an option for me; it probably wasn’t an option for a lot of you.

    That’s why I want to cut the growth of tuition in half over the next 10 years. (Applause.) That’s why I want to recruit 100,000 math and science teachers so our kids don’t fall behind the rest of the world. (Applause.) That’s why I want to train 2 million Americans at our community colleges with the skills that businesses are looking for right now. That’s what real change is. That’s my plan for the future. That’s the America we’re fighting for in this election. Forward. (Applause.)

    Change comes when we live up to this country’s legacy of innovation. The nice thing about the auto industry, we’re not just building cars again; we’re building better cars again, more advanced cars, better technology — cars that by the middle of the next decade will go twice as far on a gallon of gas. (Applause.) Today there are workers who are building long-lasting batteries and wind turbines all across the country and right here in Ohio. These are jobs that didn’t exist four years ago.

    And I don’t want a tax code that subsidizes oil company profits when oil companies are already making a lot of money. I want to support the clean energy jobs of tomorrow. I want to support the new technology that is going to cut our oil imports in half by 2020. I don’t want a tax code that rewards companies that are shipping jobs overseas; I want to reward companies that are taking root right here in Springfield, Ohio. (Applause.) Right here in Lordstown, in Toledo, in Youngstown.

    I am confident about a renaissance, a resurgence of American manufacturing. And that’s good for the entire economy. That’s the future I see for this country — making stuff again, selling it all around the world; products stamped with three proud words: Made in America. (Applause.)

    Change — real change — is turning the page on a decade of war so we can do some nation-building here at home. As long as I’m Commander-in-Chief, we will pursue our enemies with the strongest military the world has ever known. (Applause.) But it’s time we use some of the savings from ending the war to pay down our debt, rebuild America, put folks back to work right now, repairing roads and bridges, schools all across this country.

    And let’s put our veterans back to work — (applause) –because who’s served us, protected us, fought for our freedom should not have to fight for a job when they come home. (Applause.) That should be our priority. That’s my plan to keep us strong. That’s my commitment to them. That’s what’s at stake in this election. (Applause.)

    Want to talk about real change? Let’s talk about how we reduce our deficit in a balanced and responsible way. I signed a trillion dollars’ worth of spending cuts; I’m ready to do more. I will work with Democrats and Republicans. But if we’re serious about reducing the deficit, we’ve also got to ask folks like me, the wealthiest Americans in the country to go back to paying taxes at the same rate when Bill Clinton was in office. (Applause.)

    Millionaires and billionaires, they’re not going to be going to the poorhouse because they paid a slightly higher tax rate. They’ll be fine. And if we’re going to be serious about reducing the deficit you’ve got to make choices. You can’t just reduce the deficit on the backs of the middle class, on the backs of the poor.

    As long as I’m President, I’m not going to turn Medicare into a voucher just to pay for another millionaire’s tax cut. (Applause.) I’m not going to make it more expensive for young people to go to college just to pay for another millionaire’s tax cut. (Applause.) I’m not going to eliminate investments in research and science that are the key to our future just to pay for a millionaire’s tax cut. That’s not who we are. Those aren’t the right priorities. (Applause.) That’s not real change.

    We know what real change is. We know what the future requires, and we also know it’s not going to be easy. I talked about this in 2008 — some people forgot. But in 2008, I said back then, when I talk about change that we can believe in, I’m not just talking about changing presidents or changing parties; I’m talking about changing our politics.

    I ran the last time and I’m running this time because the voices of the American people — your voices — had been shut out of our democracy for way too long by lobbyists and special interests, and politicians who will do whatever it takes to just keep things the way they are. The protectors of the status quo in Washington, they fought us every step of the way on everything we wanted to do. They spent millions of dollars trying to stop us from reforming health care; millions of dollars trying to stop us from reforming Wall Street. They engineered a strategy, a gridlock in Washington, refusing to compromise anything, even on ideas that both Democrats and Republicans had supported in the past.

    And what they’re counting on now is that you’re going to be so fed up, so worn down with all the squabbling in Washington, so tired of all the dysfunction, that you’ll just give up, just walk away, and leave them to make the decisions. They’re betting on cynicism. Ohio, I’m betting on you. (Applause.) I’m betting on you. I’m betting on the decency and good sense of the American people — the folks I meet all across Ohio and all across this country.

    And that doesn’t mean that this is just a Democratic thing. When the other party has been with me to help middle-class families, I loved working with them. We cut taxes for middle-class families and small businesses; some of them cooperated. When we came together to repeal “don’t ask, don’t tell,” there were some courageous Republican senators who stood up. I appreciate that. I will work with anybody, of any party, to move this country forward. (Applause.) And if you really want to break the gridlock in Congress, then you better vote for leaders who feel the same way, whether they’re Democrats or Republicans or independents. You better work for folks who are putting people first, not the next election first. (Applause.)

    But I want everybody to be clear — there are still going to be some struggles and some fights. Look, I’m a very nice guy, people will tell you. (Laughter.) I really am. But if the price of peace in Washington is cutting deals that kicks students off of financial aid, or getting rid of funding for Planned Parenthood, or let insurance companies discriminate against people with preexisting conditions, or eliminate health care for millions of folks on Medicaid who are elderly or disabled or poor — I’m not going to make that deal. I’ll fight against that deal. (Applause.) That’s a price I’m not willing to pay. That’s not bipartisanship. That’s not change. That’s surrender to a status quo that has hurt too many American families. And I’m not going along with it. (Applause.) I’m not going along with it.

    I am a long ways away from giving up on this fight. (Applause.) I got a lot of fight left in me. (Applause.)

    AUDIENCE MEMBER: You’re not too tired?

    THE PRESIDENT: I don’t get tired. I don’t grow weary. I hope you aren’t tired either, Ohio.

    AUDIENCE: No!

    THE PRESIDENT: I hope you aren’t tired either.

    The folks at the very top in this country, they don’t need another champion in Washington. They’ve got lobbyists. They’ve got PACs. They’ve always got a seat at the table. They’ll always have access. They’ll always have influence in Congress. But people who need a champion are the Americans whose letters I read every night — the men and women I meet on the campaign trail every day; the laid-off furniture worker who decides to go back to a community college and retrain at the age of 55 — she needs a champion. The restaurant owner who needs a loan to expand after the bank turned him down — he needs a champion. The cooks and the waiters, and the cleaning staff working overtime in some Vegas hotel, trying to save enough to buy a first home or send their kids to college — they need a champion.

    The autoworker who was laid off and never thought he’d go back to the line again, and then suddenly was called back in, and is now building a great car, filling him with pride and dignity — he needs a champion. (Applause.)

    All those kids in inner cities and small farm towns, and the rolling Virginia hills, or the valleys of Ohio, or right here in Springfield — kids dreaming of becoming doctors and scientists, engineers and entrepreneurs and diplomats, and maybe even a President — they need a champion in Washington. (Applause.) Because they’re our future. And the future will never have as many lobbyists as the status quo, but those children are our saving grace. That’s what we’re fighting for. (Applause.)

    That’s what we’re fighting for. And that’s why I need you, Ohio — to make sure their voices are heard, to make sure your voices are heard. We’ve come too far to grow fainthearted. Now is the time to keep pushing. Now is the time to keep pushing forward, to educate all our kids and train all our workers, and to create new jobs, and rebuild our infrastructure, discover new sources of energy, broaden opportunity, grow our middle class, restore our democracy — and make sure that no matter what you look like or where you come from, or how you started out, you make it in America if you try. (Applause.) That’s what we’re fighting for. (Applause.) That’s why I need your vote.

    And if you’re willing to work with me, and knock on some doors with me, and make some phone calls with me, and turn out for me, we’ll win Ohio. (Applause.) We’ll win this election. We’ll renew those bonds that tie us together as a people. We’ll reaffirm that spirit that makes the United States of America the greatest nation on Earth. (Applause.)

    God bless you. God bless America. (Applause.)

  56. EVEN POLITICO ACKNOWLEDGES OBAMA’S EARLY VOTE LEAD IS LOOKING TOO SMALL…

    http://www.politico.com/news/stories/1112/83248.html

    By LOIS ROMANO | 11/2/12 5:52 PM EDT

    President Barack Obama is leading in an unprecedented early voting push by both campaigns that has already seen an estimated 22 million people cast ballots.

    But some independent observers said that the president’s lead may not be wide enough to make up the difference between Obama and Mitt Romney in some key battleground states on Election Day.

    While Obama is ahead in early raw voting numbers in Florida and North Carolina, voting expert Michael McDonald, a professor at George Mason University, says Romney has effectively closed the gap enough that strong Republican turnout on Election Day could cost Obama those states.

    “It’s going to be difficult for Obama to pull enough ahead to win North Carolina to offset what Romney may do on Election Day,” says McDonald, director of the United States Elections Project. “They’re seeing the same numbers I am seeing.”

    (Also on POLITICO: Swing-state map)

    For months, both campaigns have lavished millions of dollars, and dispatched thousands of volunteers to corral potential supporters to vote early — either by mail or in person. The result is that an unparalleled number of Americans will have cast their ballots before Election Day — perhaps as much as 40 percent of the electorate — rendering traditional get-out-the-vote efforts almost archaic.

    But whether the intense efforts give the edge to Obama or Romney — wiser after Obama’s 2008 success with early voting — remains to be seen. “We are on track for a record-breaking turnout in early voting, but we don’t know what that means yet,” said McDonald, director of the United States Elections Project. (There is no indication that Hurricane Sandy impacted early voting turnout in the states at issue.)

    Compared with 2008, Obama is being challenged in a field he had virtually to himself four years ago. The Pew Research Center reported Thursday that “Unlike the last campaign, the race also is close among voters who say they have already voted.”

    In its poll, conducted this week, Pew reported that neither Obama nor Romney “has a clear advantage among early voters. This is in sharp contrast to early voting at this point four years ago, which favored Obama by a wide margin.”

    So crucial is early voting to the campaigns’ strategies, that the candidates themselves are beating the drums publicly. Last week, Obama made a show of voting early in his home state of Illinois. And in an interview this week with April Ryan of American Urban Radio Networks, the president swung back to the topic twice, signaling why early voting is critical for Democrats.

    Early voting, Obama said, enables the campaign to help people who might run into a problem at the polls. “We can solve those problems. We have lawyers across the country, and if someone prevents someone from voting, we can try and fix it,” the president said.

    “But if you show up hours before the polls close and suddenly you’re not on the list or you don’t have the right ID, it might be hard for us to get you the help you need.”

    Romney, too, reminded supporters Monday in Ohio of its importance. “We’re doing well right now, so early voting makes a difference,” he said. “It helps us. It’s, you know, a little extra boost when we need it, so thank you for doing it.”

    Obama Attracting Smaller Crowds than McCain in ’08
    ===============================

    By Eliana Johnson
    November 3, 2012 1:35 P.M.

    Campaigning in Mentor, Ohio today, President Obama drew a crowd of 4,000. RNC research director Joe Pounder notes that, four years ago, John McCain drew a bigger ground to the same venue.

    This appears to be something of a trend. Last night, Mitt Romney drew 30,000 to a Cincinnati rally, while 2,800 people showed up to see President Obama at the Franklin County fairgrounds.

    I guess this is the SURGE for Obama Charles Blow was talking about. Yep, that is one enthused campaign.

    Parsing the Polls
    =============

    If Gallup is right, Tuesday will be a long night for the Democratic party.

    By Michael G. Franc

    Last week, the Gallup Organization provided more fodder for the debate over whether this year’s polls are skewed due to a systematic over-representation of Democrats in the samples. If Gallup has it right, Governor Romney’s lead may be several percentage points greater than the most recent round of polls suggests.

    Gallup reviewed all of its interviews with “likely voters” conducted since October 1. Its conclusion: “The composition of the electorate for the 2012 presidential election is looking quite similar to what it was in 2008 as well as 2004.” Indeed, whether the sample is broken out on the basis of race, gender, level of education, or geographic location, the percentage of likely voters in each subset is no different than it was four years earlier.

    But Gallup uncovered one very significant shift in this year’s voting electorate. There has been a remarkable movement toward the Republican party. As Gallup reports:

    The largest changes in the composition of the electorate compared with the last presidential election concern the partisan affiliation of voters. Currently, 46% of likely voters identify as Democrats or lean Democratic, compared with 54% in 2008. But in 2008, Democrats enjoyed a wide 12-point advantage in party affiliation among national adults, the largest Gallup had seen in at least two decades. More recently, Americans have been about as likely to identify as or lean Republican as to identify as or lean Democratic. Consequently, the electorate has also become less Democratic and more Republican in its political orientation than in 2008. In fact, the party composition of the electorate this year looks more similar to the electorate in 2004 than 2008.

    If anything, Gallup understates the case. In 2008, Democrats enjoyed a decisive ten-point advantage in partisan affiliation, 39 percent to 29 percent. When undecided voters were pushed to choose a party, the Democrats’ edge grew by another two points, to 54 percent to 42 percent. Yet in the Gallup polls conducted since October 1, the two parties have pulled even, with Republicans actually ahead by a statistically insignificant percentage point, 36 percent to 35 percent. After being pushed to choose a party, likely voters give the Republicans a further boost, resulting in an overall three-point advantage of 49 percent to 46 percent.

    If you are keeping score, in slightly less than four years President Obama has presided over an eleven-point decrease in his party’s standing with the American people, 15 points if you include those voters who “lean” one way or the other.

    The Pew Research Center has posted party identification data going all the way back to 1929. The data series suggests that this deterioration in the Democrats’ standing with American voters is nearly unprecedented. The only comparable meltdown occurred during the tumultuous years of the Vietnam War and the birth of the Great Society under LBJ, when the Democrats also suffered an eleven-point loss relative to their Republican rivals.

    If you are wondering which president defied the odds and steered his party forward during his time in office, try Ronald Reagan. From 1981 to 1988 the Gipper’s principled conservative leadership whittled the Democrats’ initial 14-point edge down to a mere five points.

    To be sure, the most recent spate of national polls include more Republicans than did the surveys conducted earlier in October. Nevertheless, they still give more advantage to the Democrats than Gallup’s aggregate data suggest should be the case. ABC/Wall Street Journal’s most recent poll, for example, includes 34 percent Democrats and 30 percent Republicans, the Investors Business Daily poll sets the Democrats’ advantage at seven points (38 percent to 31 percent), and an Associated Press survey comes in two percentage points more Democratic than Republican.

    Correcting these polls so that there was a Republican edge in the sample of voters consistent with Gallup’s finding would hand Romney a lead between five to ten points. Imagine the run on smelling salts at Mother Jones and MSNBC if that were to happen?

    I love that you are posting the real polling info on this board–hope that Nate Silver guy is reading….

  60. I was just watching the live CO Romney rally airing on Huckabee’s show. You have all heard the story Romney tells of the boy scouts flag that went up on Challenger and then NASA miraculously found it all in one piece, well, Romney had the scoutmaster today come on the stage, he is from Monument, CO. He brought and showed the flag to the people.

  61. This is pretty big news: GOP won combined Early Voting / Absentee Ballot returns in every single Nevada county including Washoe (Reno) and except Clark (Las Vegas). Obama’s ground game outside of Las Vegas was decimated and is nothing compared to what he had four years ago. People were waiting on line in Reno to vote early for hours yesterday.

    58.4% of Democrats voted statewide.

    59.5% of Republicans voted statewide.

    Obama is in big trouble in Nevada. The unions in Las Vegas are going to pull out all the stops, and they have roughly a 48k lead, but it will be the independent and third party registered voters that decide the results of this state.

    ……………………….

    Democrats needed a 80,000+ lead to feel even sort of happy they’ll win, as of now, Dems are worried about Nevada. We don’t even know how many of those Dems will vote Romney. I’d say quite a few.

    ****************

    And for once, I will listen to every word while drinking many bottles of champagne simutaneously flicking my middle finger to the TV screen while I yell and cheer and do cart wheels in the sky…

  65. My only wish for the campaign was the Romney had asked “are you better off now” more often.

    Seeing Big Dog on the trail for the Oturd has really disheartened me. I do think silvertongue Bill will rally the base for this fraud though. That is what we must keep in sight.

    I woke in the middle of the night with a sort of heartburn about Tuesday and I had been very upbeat, and sure.

    Why Bill wants to hurt the American people I just don’t understand. He knows Oturd is a fraud.

    Moochelle has been noticeably ABSENT from MSM reporting her campaign events. Buried deep in the news the other day was a secret service agent committing suicide. 47 years old.

  66. Tells you all you need to know, if Obama is so confident of Pennsylvania why is Bill Clinton camped out there tomorrow, all day doing 4 events in deep blue heartlands,not in the swing areas but deep blue PA, trouble in the core vote perhaps?

  67. Reckon that is it Moon? Trouble in paradise for PA??? I just don’t like Bill C out there, yes he’s gonna help Oturd, I admit it. The base loves Bill C and it’s only after Bill went to actually campaign for Oturd that I saw a change in the polls. I personally hoped Bill would show up sick and just cancel them.

    Bill is better campaigner than Oturd. That is what gives me pause.

    If Oturd wins I’ll never step watch Bill Clinton on any shows, etc. Makes me wonder if Bill C is not angling for S.O.S job himself. I swear he’s up to something. This just ain’t “party shit” Something is up.

  68. With Hill saying she is retiring with no political aspirations left I just can’t understand Bill in all of this. It’s like he become suddendly hynotized. Bill has a legacy already so why is he pumping Oturd up to take over his legacy. If Otrud were relected MSM in all their worshipping will make him a even higher god than they’ve made him now. Bill C legacy will be overshadowed, left behind and Bill seems like a person who wants to be remembered as the best the party had.

    I’m still puzzled. Unless he’s being blackmailed and I won’t even open that can of worms. Remember John Edwards and what obummer had on him.

  69. The campaigning though in PA is what has me worried LOL Bill Clinton is a charmer, a liar no doubt but a good bullshitter for Oturd. He’s to stir the base, get out the vote and all. I just hope it doesn’t turn some around, the dems who had actually seen through the fog of Oturds policies and all of asudden say well, if BigDawg thinks its worth 4 more years I will go for it. THAT is what worries me the most right now.

  70. Dot but people are asking the question why is Obama not going there, its because he is toxic with those blue collar voters in PA, its a bit of a snub to send a surrogate. It sends a message to the people of PA from Obama, I can’t be assed to come, here’s Bill.

  71. Hilarious……

    The Million Muppet March rally today in Washington seeking to have taxpayers continue to subsidize television programing for children fell significantly short by 999,004, only 996 people turned up……No wonder the Big Bird mantra fell flat.

  72. Logic of course and you’re correct Moon.

    Yahoo already acting like they counted votes because of early voting, they think cause you have a D beside your name makes you automatically vote for Oturd. Have to skim way down the article before you see that no votes have been counted.

    Yahoo has been notorious for misleading headlines. HOWEVER, that being said, if enough Oturds thinks he’s ahead they’ll just stay home.

  73. Big Bird was just another headline for Yahoo and others to try to trumpet against Romney. I don’t even used them as a homepage now. I use StartPage and have links to my favorite sites but sometimes I have to log in to Yahoo to check my email

  74. NJ/NY This is what Unions think of your plight…..

    Sandy: Long Island union sent written demand to Florida utilities: Pay dues or stay home

    In a two-page Oct. 29 contract, the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) local 1049 demanded union dues, pay hikes and benefit contributions from Florida electric utilities before its workers would be permitted to help reconnect power to Long Island communities. The demand came as Hurricane Sandy was bearing down on the Northeastern United States, stranding tens of millions without electricity.

    The “Letter of Assent,” which The Daily Caller obtained from the Florida Municipal Electric Association, demanded 11 separate financial commitments from municipal power companies and electrical cooperatives in the Sunshine State. The agreement, for any utility that decided to sign it, would have been in force from Oct. 29 to Nov. 29.

    Barry Moline, the association’s executive director, told TheDC that by Nov. 1 the union, based in the central Long Island town of Hauppauge, had relented and stopped insisting that nonunion crews pay dues and other union fees.

    “The union director” himself placed a phone call to withdraw the letter, Moline said during a telephone interview Saturday. But that came only after Moline had notified a national trade group, the American Public Power Association, which turned outrage into action.

    http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Government/2012/11/01/STUDENTSFOROBAMA-ORG-Obama-doesn-t-deserve-four-more-years

    Much to the chagrin of the Obama campaign, Studentsforobama.org is not supporting Obama’s reelection efforts. Instead, the site greets visitors with a video message from a college student explaining why he supported Obama in 2008 but is opposing him in 2012. The site is now a project of Let Freedom Ring.
    Studentsforobama.org issued this statement:
    In the past four years, we have changed. We once supported President Obama. Obama made many good promises. Obama seemed non-partisan and willing to bring about change. He was charismatic. We were excited to see what would come of his administration. Sadly, Obama has failed us, instituting policies that have negatively affected us.

    Because of this, Students For Obama has become Students No Longer For Obama. We have awakened to the President’s failures, and we feel that it is time for a change. It’s time to allow someone else a chance in the Oval Office. Obama doesn’t deserve four more years of reckless behavior.
    In an exclusive interview, John Cassil, a student activist heavily involved with studentsforobama.org, stated, “Being on campus for the last four years, I’ve seen student orientation take a turn from liberal leaning to libertarian leaning, with political affiliations more closely mirroring that of the Republican Party.” A senior at Clemson University majoring in management, John is troubled by the foreign policy stances of the Obama administration. As John noted, “our relationship with Israel has suffered greatly the last four years which is why I’ve become actively involved with the Young Jewish Conservatives and the Republican Jewish Coalition.”
    John’s observations might not be unique to the Clemson University campus. Numerous video testimonials of students no longer supporting Obama appear on a related site.

  76. BO’s use of the word “revenge” says it all. it encompasses all that is ugly, divisive and nasty. this is BO’s new democrat party.

    time to flush november 6th.

  77. Now you know Obama is fucked.

    Palm Beach Post won’t endorse either. Very left-wing paper that backed Obama and Kerry. This is like center of liberal la la land and they wont endorse Obama.

  78. There is a price to pay for arrogance and the Dems are going to have to pony up on Tuesday.
    Here is an interesting precis from a Pittsburgh paper that should give the jittery among us a good reason to cheer up.

    Main Street in Revolt
    By Salena Zito – November 4, 2012

    The homemade sign for Mitt Romney in the yard of a well-manicured but modest home in Leadville, Colo., forlornly signals the fracture of another onetime supporter of Barack Obama.
    If Romney wins the presidency on Tuesday, the national media, the Washington establishment and the bulk of academia will have missed something huge that happened in “flyover” America under their watch.
    It is a story that few have told.
    It reminds one of the famous quip by New Yorker film critic Pauline Kael following Richard Nixon’s landslide 1972 victory: “I live in a rather special world. I only know one person who voted for Nixon.”
    Two years after suffering a historic shellacking in the 2010 midterm election, Democrats astonishingly have ignored Main Street Americans’ unhappiness.
    That 2010 ejection from the U.S. House, and from state legislatures and governors’ offices across the country, didn’t happen inside the Washington Beltway world.
    It didn’t reflect the Democrats’ or the media’s conventional wisdom or voter-turnout models. So it just wasn’t part of their reality.
    In Democrats’ minds, it was never a question of “How did we lose Main Street?” Instead, it was the fault of the “tea party” or of crazy right-wing Republicans.
    Yet in interview after interview — in Colorado, along Nebraska’s plains, in small Iowa towns or Wisconsin shops, outside closed Ohio steel plants and elsewhere — many Democrats have told me they are furious with the president. Not in a frothing-at-the-mouth or racist way, as many elites suggest. They just have legitimate concerns affecting their lives.
    These Main Street Democrats in seven battleground states supported Obama in 2008. Now they are disappointed by his broken pledges: Where is the promised bipartisanship? How could health-care reform become such a mess? What direction is the country going in?
    Their overriding sentiment is uncertainty over where the president is taking the country. They have no idea but get the feeling it isn’t the direction that traditional Democrats want.
    They certainly haven’t gotten guidance from the president’s re-election slogans: class warfare, a hyphenated America, spreading the wealth around.
    Over and over, these folks expressed unhappiness that fixing the economy doesn’t seem to be Obama’s focus; they have noticed that those in charge have high opinions of themselves but aren’t taking responsibility for the lack of progress.
    It took Romney just 90 minutes, in a debate hall just a three-hour drive from that Leadville home’s sign, to convince many Americans (including many Democrats) that he passed their threshold test.
    He came across as a qualified alternative to Obama who believes in their vision of an exceptional America and convinced them he can win.
    And, just like that, “flyover” America was ready to vote its conscience.
    What a shame that those from Kael’s “special world” don’t grasp the vicious cycle of their growing disdain for those alienated by their own actions.
    They create dangerous narratives through Twitter and on TV that polarize and promote the rigidity of their ideology rather than introspection.
    Never once have Main Street Americans heard Washington elites ponder, “What did we Democrats do to lose the confidence of so many voters?”
    Plenty of traditional Democrats have voiced such concerns but are not being heard.
    Conversely, Romney seems largely to have figured out what he did wrong in 2008 and what George W. Bush did wrong previously.
    Obama’s progressivism no longer seems universal, upbeat and forward-looking; instead, it appears divisive, shrill and based on the worst kind of shortsighted power calculations.
    Yesterday’s “special world” liberals, such as Kael, could be gently chided for their heart-in-the-right-place, head-in-the-clouds idealism.
    Yet it is something else altogether to have today’s arbiters of political correctness order you to march “Forward” to a future with less promise, fewer choices, more intrusive government — and to justify it by telling you to accept that the new normal of high employment, low growth and diminished world influence is good for you.
    Is it any wonder that Main Street America is in revolt, since no one is telling its story?
Perhaps election night will tell it, at long last.

  79. Just heard on FOX that The New York Daily News has endorsed Romney! Wow!

    I know that Romney is going to win this election. But, although I am not an eyeeore, I still have the fear that the obots are going to steal it in the end. There is so much cheating going on. People voting 4 and 5 times; corrupted machines and now the NAACP has taken over a voting place in Texas and scaring voters into supporting barry!

    It’s not freaken fair! Why isn’t anyone getting after these cheats???

  80. Leanora, i think the Obots and people coming out of the woodwork at the last minute to endorse Romney is telling ,it means they are longer scared, they know, Obama will be gone in 2 days, the power goes quickly after an election.

  81. A lot of Hilary’s Women are voting J.S.
    But a lot are voting R/R.
    Because putting country above party.
    is the right way to go. 🙁
    Never forget Never forgive 5/31/08

  83. Final national NBC/WSJ poll: Obama 48%, Romney 47%

    Haha, you knew they would, Obama will lose, can’t even get to 50% with NBC.

  84. really hope you hold accountable every conservative writer you see in the next few days freaking out over “Obama winning Ohio!” because this is ridiculously apocryphal; anyone who has ever lived in the buckeye state should know it is going to award its 18 electoral votes to Mitt Romney this year and it won’t even be close. Look for Romney’s win to be a 54% to 46% blowout for Republicans. That’s because Ohio is not a swing state this time around…since Obama’s deliberate push to the Left over the last four years has forced a pendulum correction shift that has now made Wisconsin, Minnesota, Michigan, Oregon, and even New Jersey the real swing states (instead of the swing states being Indiana, Iowa, Virginia, and North Carolina like last time…when the political pendulum had swung wildly to the Left during the now-stale “Hopeychange” fad of 2008). There’s just no rational reason for anyone to be worried about a Republican losing Ohio if on the last weekend before a presidential election the states really up for grabs with a 50/50 shot of either side winning include MINNESOTA…and a possible (but not necessarily probable) pickup for Romney is actually New Jersey (which, after Hurricane Sandy and the ineptitude that Democrats have shown in handling rescue efforts there, is a true possibility…as crazy as that might at first seem). If you think of that pendulum swinging, it had to pass Ohio to reach the point where Wisconsin and Minnesota are in play (and would need to swing even deeper into Democrat territory to put states like Washington, Connecticut, and Delaware into “swing” category). I wish it was an absolute armageddon for Democrats and the pendulum

  85. Rasmussen doing his CYA….

    Rasmussen has a tie again at 49% as per Drudge, but Romney back up 9 w/ indies.

    If Romney is up that much with Indies, he wins.

  86. I am in Minnesota and love the news about Romney ahead. For what it’s worth I see very, very few Obama signs in my city and we have two colleges and a technical school here. The town was plastered with Obama signs in 2008. My sister went to the Twin Cities yesterday and said she saw only one(!) Obama sign but numerous Romney signs.

    I also think it’s interesting Bill Clinton has been campaigning in the northern part of the state (Duluth, St. Cloud) rather than down in my farm country southern section of the state.

  87. foxyladi14,

    Thanks for the HillBuzz link but for some reason I can’t open it. But I may simply have trouble with that site in general since I couldn’t open it when I located another link through Google.

    I did find a twitter “entry”, if that’s the correct word and DuJan (HillBuzz’s “author”) opined that Brown was going to win in Mass since no one showed up at Warren’s rally.

    For anyone that is interested in seeing what kind of attendance she has in the Boston area I hear that she is going to be at the Braintree, MA high school at 1:00 or 1:30 today (Sunday). How long do these things run? I might try to catch the end of it after church.

    Frankly, I’m feeling pretty good about Romney’s and Brown’s chances right now.

    Keep the faith!!

  88. It is funny how whiny Billy Kristol blames Romney for not bringing up Benghazi. There is no mention of how Obama media whores are itching to get Romney off his message of Obama failures on the economy. Why not hold the big media whores to account instead of putting all responsibility on Romney. He can’t or won’t bring it up because that would open up an avenue for the media whores to go after him. Right now they are twiddling their thumbs because they don’t want to talk about Benghazi and they don’t want to talk about Obama’s failures. They are waiting to pounce on Romney if he utters a word on Libya. Obama will join in with his sympathy seeking how dare you accuse me of being a murderer (which is what he did in the debate) and Obama LIES. No point in giving him a chance to lie and further distort what is a serious foreign policy failure. The bad guys are watching.

    Here is the link to whiner Kristol. I thought he had stopped doing that.

    Works for Me??? And please call me Foxy all my friends do. 🙂

  90. I really like Rob Portman. He has been a tireless surrogate for Romney. He makes excellent points in every interview I have seen without being flashy.

  91. encouragement from sponge bob – when sponge bob is crying he is drawn with three white dots in his eyes. this morning I watched as david plouffe I noticed he had three white dots in his eyes.

  92. I asked earlier about MO and I haven’t seen hide nor hair of her on the trail with him at all. Seems strange to me. It’s like she wants as far from him as possible.

  93. just a little tidbit…

    I was listening to Washington Journal this am while waking up…and they had open lines asking people who they thought would win and who they voted for…

    and an AA woman called in from Hollywood, Florida…she said she was undecided until she actually went into the booth to vote…and at the last minute inside that booth she decided to vote for Mitt Romney…

    Steve on c-span was very intrigued with her being undecided up to the last minute and started talking with and questioning her…

    She basically said the election came down to the economy, not one person…she said the economy is bad and she believes that Mitt Romney will be better to help the economy and jobs…she said there were a lot of AA in line with her that were not sure of their vote either (it kind of got muffled there so I am not sure what else she said about others in the line)

    and then Steve asked her who she voted for in 2008 and she said Obama…

    ***************************

    this goes along with what we have been saying…just because a D voted is getting registered does not mean it is going to O…and O cannot assume all the AA will vote for him when they get in that booth away from peer pressure, because everyone is concerned with their own well being and security…it is beyond saving O…

  94. She campaigned at Miami Univ, OH yesterday. She was in Iowa on Friday. So don’t know why we don’t see pics of her.

  95. it is beyond saving O…

    Oh, saving BO’s ass is all about white upper class professional privilege. Others have to worry about where their next meal or rent comes from. I am glad to see that they recognize when things don’t work out the way they thought it would and move on.

  96. rack up another one for Mitt (they backed O last time around)

    Not enough hope and too little change.

    That is President Barack Obama’s record on the economy, debt and Washington gridlock after four years in the White House.

    The State Journal editorial board endorses Mitt Romney in Tuesday’s presidential election.

    Romney showed as the Republican governor of Democratic-leaning Massachusetts that he can find agreement across the partisan divide. And his vice presidential pick — Wisconsin’s U.S. Rep. Paul Ryan, R-Janesville — suggests Romney is serious about tackling America’s fiscal mess.

    Romney has an impressive record of success in the private and public sectors. He’s a numbers guy who focuses more on results than ideology. That’s why so many of his fellow Republicans during the GOP primary criticized him for not being conservative enough.

    Romney has been a strong leader in business and civic life. This includes turning around many troubled companies and the 2002 Winter Olympics.

    Romney better understands how and why entrepreneurs and employers decide to expand and add jobs. He’s more likely to get the private-sector going strong again.

    Romney displayed reasonableness and smarts during the debates. And his view on the most pressing foreign policy question — Iran — is similar to his opponent’s.

    Yes, Romney did his share of flip-flopping and pandering during the GOP primary to get past stubborn party stalwarts. Yes, Romney’s talk of repealing the Affordable Care Act and boosting military spending are unrealistic. We disagree with Romney on a host of social issues, from marriage equality to abortion rights.

    This is not an easy endorsement to make.

    Obama is the more likeable candidate and inspiring speaker. Obama inherited a mess from his predecessor, Republican President George W. Bush, who was even more disappointing than Obama has been.

    Obama got us out of Iraq. He pressured public schools to reform. He gave the final order that got Osama bin Laden.

    But this election is about jobs, the slow economy and Washington’s dysfunction. Our leaders can’t even pass a budget, much less stabilize soaring debt that’s burdening our children and grandchildren.

    Obama failed to embrace his own commission’s bipartisan debt deal. Ryan, serving on the commission, similarly balked at the solid and comprehensive agreement.

    But Obama is the president. The buck stops with him. This is now Obama’s economy, even though the GOP shares in the blame for partisan games.

    It was Obama and his fellow Democrats who went it alone on health care, making subsequent deals even harder to find. It was Obama who too often let Congress steer the ship in circles. It still is Obama who hasn’t laid out a clear vision for the next four years.

    We endorsed Obama for change last time around. Now we’re endorsing change again: Mitt Romney.

  97. LOL, reading that WSJ comments section is hilarous. The Obots can’t name one serious thing that Oturds done, they want to blame the paper for endorsing Romney, call them stupid while all along the paper endorsed Oturd in 08.

    Coming to the grips of reality has been hard for many on the hopium. It’s gonna be a painful withdrawal for them. Watch yourselves it could get ugly quickly.

    Some of Oturds supporters sound deranged and downright out of control.

  98. you got that right, dot48…many of O’s supporters are scary strange and very uninformed on anything…they know how to attack, insult and threaten though…

    **************************************************************

    …just thinking about Tuesday and final voting day…seems to me it is going to be CRAZY…

    I mean, if early voting is causing lines that last for four hours and more…and people leave to come back the next day…then…

    what is Tuesday going to be like? would guess long, long lines all day long into the night…going to be interesting…tempers?

  99. An interesting explanation and timeline of what may have happened before that second debate when Crowley inserted herself into the Libya question. Obama baited Romney and you can clearly see he is lying when he brings it up purposefully hoping Romney would react the way he did and Crowley propping him the way she did — the article below recounts that Crowley in an earlier interview reacted like Romney did in an earlier interview with Axelrod when he lied about what Obama said. It was all a well played ruse for Obama and his minions. In the third debate Romney was wiser and if I remember right, Obama even tried to drag him into Libya question at one point I think. Romney was right to not give Obama an opportunity to lie on the national stage again about Libya.

  100. Obama’s skin color and his fawning media whores are what is saving him now. He would have gone the way GHWB went if he were a white dude. Can we say affirmative action?

  101. By the butt-kiss coverage at David Gregory and Howard Kurtz today you would never know the POS is about to get his own a$$ handed to him.

  102. As of today, 11 newspapers that endorsed Obama in 2008 have now endorsed Mitt Romney:

    The New York Daily News;
    Long Island Newsday;
    Houston Chronicle;
    Fort Worth Star-Telegram;
    Orlando Sentinel;
    Ft. Lauderdale Sun-Sentinel;
    Nashville Tennessean;
    Des Moines Register;
    Illinois Daily Herald;
    Los Angeles Daily News;
    Los Angeles Press-Telegram.

    The only newspaper that endorsed McCain in 2008 and has switched to Obama now is the San Antonio Express-News. Meanwhile, another seven papers that endorsed Obama in 2008 have switched to no endorsement.

    …………………………..

    Difference is and its true, GOP voters tend to be at the polls from 6am…Dem voters tend arrive 5 mins before the polls close and then whine because they can’t get in

  104. Remember “you didn’t build that” “get revenge” “i’m just a lowly prop” “we’ll cut through the red tape for you Hurricane Sandy survivors .. (even as they freeze to death and don’t even have a FEMA agency staffed enough to provide water.

    BroncoBammy(tm) has been an utter failure from even before the nomination was stolen from Hillary Clinton.

    You know it would be easy for the 18 million Hillary cracks on the ceiling to seek REVENGE for the shit they piled onto her. But instead we seek to find a true leader who can unite the country, not divide the country, a true leader who will work with us, not against us. A true friend to Israel and a true friend to our soldiers and seniors.

    That’s why I chose Mitt Romney.

  105. Good old Uncle Joe. This MUS be what has him so confused:
    NOTE FROM FNC’s Ed Henry:
    First it was borrowing the same agenda and the economic record. … and just now the Obama-Clinton rally in Concord ended with yes, Fleetwood Mac’s “Don’t Stop Thinking About Tomorrow” … which became the Clinton anthem in 1992 and again in ‘96 … full circle
    Old campaign reporters literally overheard saying, “I haven’t heard that song in 16 years …”

  109. Wow, BroncoBammy stealing BigDawg’s song now. WTF .. he thinks he can TURN BACK FREAKIN TIME.

    Listen Oturd, times were GOOD under Bill Clinton, I LIVED through 2 Bill Clinton terms. YOU ain’t Bill Clinton. Even though you seem to want us to think you are.

    I bet Romney campaign is laughing their asses off right now

  110. NYT “Breaking News Alert” via email

    Romney is gonna have his hands full. If Obama “wins” I pity these “folks” because he won’t have to pretend he cares anymore

    ____________________

    In New York, 30,000 to 40,000 people, mainly residents of public housing, will have to find new homes, Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg said Sunday. Mr. Bloomberg compared it to the situation after Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans.

    “I don’t know that anybody has ever taken this number of people and found housing for them overnight,” the mayor said.

    Many residents in New Jersey, on Long Island and in Connecticut face a similar problem.

    “This is going to be a massive, massive housing problem,” Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo said.

  111. Don’t know about everyone else but I can’t stop thinking about tomorrow and Tuesday so we can throw these bums out.

    Poor Bill Clinton, you know I actually feel sorta sorry for the guy now. Reckon this is all he can muster up now. Drumming for Oturd. Sincerely disappointed in the Big Dawg and this obsessive chuminess he has with BO now.

  112. The words from a winning Campaign?

    Below is an email from FNC’s Ed Henry

    In a nostalgic move, President Obama is going to be joined on Air Force One Monday by former aides Robert Gibbs and Reggie Love, according to a campaign official

    The official noted the President has already said that win or lose this will be his last campaign — no comeback in 2016 if he fails this time. So the President wants some of the people who were with him at the beginning around for the last hours of his last campaign.

    Note from me:(Ed Henry) much can happen in 4 years. Even if President Obama loses on Tuesday, and even though he says he won’t run in 2016, how many politicians have said that before (that they won’t run again?) Much can happen in politics in 4 years (even in 2 days!) Right now he and Governor Romney are exhausted and probably can’t believe they will ever want to do this again….but politics DOES get in your blood and you can’t get it out.

    The words from a winning Campaign?

    The official noted the President has already said that win or lose this will be his last campaign — no comeback in 2016 if he fails this time.
    &&&&&

    If Obama LOSES as incumbent, why on earth would Dems see any chance for him in 2016??

    More likely he’s laying out his escape plan; I doubt we’ll ever hear from him again, unlike say Clinton, who keeps working for Dems, even when they are pieces of shit. In this case, I think Bill is not campaigning for Obummer, but for the Democrats as a party, and to keep his reputation in good standing with long time Dems.

  114. “This is going to be a massive, massive housing problem,” Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo said.

    Will the celebrity Blacks who went after Bush over Katrina, take back what they said as because it is more geography than other things?

    Althouse had a post couple of days ago talking about Christie’s behavior and contrasting that with how the Dem Governor/Mayor/senator from LA behaved during Katrina with Bush.

  115. ROFL….

    PPP(D) Daily tracker still has Obama up 1, 49-48. Today they moved from D+6 to D+7. With 08 turnout O leads by just 1. Kos can’t be happy.

  116. 2016 for either Obama……..some are totally delusional.

    They had their free pass, blew it and now should be packing their bags for Hawaii.

  117. I am not joking.. I vaguely remember reading a headline about her running or his supporters asking if she would run. That would make it full circle in emulating the Clintons.

  118. pm317: “… That would make it full circle in emulating the Clintons.”

    Come on! Hillary was known as “co-president” of Billary and Bill had two successful terms.

    To emulate the Clintons, Obama would have to have at least ONE successful term, and MO would have to be known for some kind of positive contribution.

    And maybe MO would run for Senate in the interim… no, she hates politics just as her husband does.

    This couple is finished. Their retirement starts Nov 7.

  119. Will joins Barone and Morris in landslide category.

    Add Washington Post George Will to the landslide column along with Fox News Channel’s Dick Morris and the Washington Examiner’s Michael Barone.

    On this weekend’s broadcast of “This Week with George Stephanopoulos” on ABC, Will revealed his prediction and added a bonus surprise by saying traditional Democratic state Minnesota would go for Romney as well.

    “I’m projecting Minnesota to go for Romney,” Will said. “It’s the only state that’s voted democratic in nine consecutive elections, but this year, there’s marriage amendment on the ballot that will bring out the evangelicals and I think could make the difference.”

  120. The headquarters for President Barack Obama’s campaign in Fort Myers has been burglarized, but detectives say only cash was taken.

  122. reports, in six other states — Kansas, Missouri, Nevada, North Carolina and Ohio. You can watch Eric Shawn report on the Ohio voting machine machinations here.

    The Republican National Committee has sent a letter to election officials in the seven states where voters have reported machines switching votes from Romney to Obama demanding tighter controls on touch-screen machines. In the letter the RNC asked for the following:

    All voting machines be re-calibrated before Election Day.
    Additional technicians in the event of further issues.
    Sign notification reminding voters to double-check the correctness of their ballot in the machine before final submission.
    Verbal guidance to remind voters to make sure that the ballot they cast is correct.

What is it in this state that makes you think that President Romney, uh, sorry, Governor Romney can overcome those particular statistics and the feel of the voters?

  126. Obama’s Mojo is No Mo

    My, what a difference 4 years of incompetence can make when it comes to judging a President. In 2008, Barack Obama was the new Messiah. An aura of Hope and Change shrouded his visage. People loved his ass. Didn’t matter that he had no record. Didn’t matter that he had no accomplishments in managing or running anything of substance. He was the black Moses, come to lead us to da promise land.

    Four years later, we got coyote ugly. In our inebriated stage we took a beauty/hunk home and woke up with a troll with bad breath (note, coyote ugly can apply to male or female). The really amazing change are the surprising newspaper endorsements of Mitt Romney.

    http://www.noquarterusa.net/blog/

  127. Hillbuzz…

    Please Be Charitable to the Leftists on Tuesday When Obama Loses – do not taunt them or rub salt in their wounds (no matter how tempted you may be)

    I would like to take a moment to ask you to please be charitable in the days ahead…but especially on Tuesday…while dealing with Obama cultists and all those on the Left when Barack Obama loses his reelection bid.

    The Left will lash out with anger…and will generally behave like vampires doused in Holy Water, tossed out on their bare butts into the blazing sun, and then rolled around in pits of garlic and evaporated angels’ tears.

    [snip]

    On Tuesday, Democrats will suffer what to many of them will be a shocking and soul-crushing loss. A great many of them have been believing the lies told by the Ministry of Truth and have listened to that guy Nate Silver, who consistently spread the apocryphal notion that Barack Obama’s reelection was inevitable and that Americans wanted this country to keep moving to the Left and be transformed into a socialist paradise. If you are someone who has been listening to the nonstop propaganda churned out by MSNBC, the New York Times, and other Minitru mouthpieces then you will be in full meltdown mode come Tuesday night.

    While I very much will enjoy my Schadenfreude (vintage 2012) as I watch the results roll in…and I am purposefully going to watch MSNBC for the first time in four years just to see the pundits and talking heads there collapse into puddles of tears…I’m not going to entertain any notion of taunting the lefties in my life who will be apoplectic beginning around 9pm EST as the results make it clear that Mitt Romney is now our President-Elect.

    [snip]

    I firmly believe in defeating the Left completely and obliterating the Democrat Party as we now know it so that never in our lifetimes do we have to go through something like the last four years again. Beginning November 7th, the factions of the Clinton Restoration and the Obama Remnant will jockey for control of the Democrat Party…and it will be four years of battle as the Left attempts to cling to power. I hope the moderates and centrists win and that the Obama cult is permanently discredited and disbanded, never to emerge again…with the lunatic Leftists locked away in the cellar beneath the DNC for another 30 or 40 years.

  128. Holy smokes! The endorseements for Romney are coming FAST AND FURIOUS. There is blood in the water and these ass kissers want to be sure to be on the “right” side.

    Best comment I found from the one editorial comments
    ************************************************
    Elected with a significant mandate and his party in control of both houses of the Congress, Obama squandered the support of the nation.

  129. Chris Wallace chart showing Ohio early voting down for dims, up for repubs with the total change more than the POS’s ’08 winning margin.

  130. dot,

    What’s got me nervous is how diametrically opposed the numbers are depending on the pollster. I mean, how can LSM be so convinced the POS is gonna win? I confess that worries me.

  131. Basil, I’m not convinced the Dem’s won’t try to steal it. I simply cannot believe the destruction that Obama has brought to the Democrat party. I’m still reeling that Bill Clinton is actually advocating that we need to stay the course and that Obama is right for America. I can’t stitch that together, it’s been so hard for me. I will never return to the Democratic party, at some point I might find some national democrat who’ll thrill me but with the party platform now I just don’t see that happening.

    I confess I voted a straight R ticket this time, and believe me some of our local races I know these people and was raised with them. But local politics is worse than national and I just wanted to vote for a clean sweep. I don’t feel conflicted at all, actually it was liberating for me to not toe a party line.

  132. Basil, I think we are seeing a shifting first with all the newspaper endorsements. Of course LSM has packed the water for Oturd all along, the lies they told on Hillary and Bill have never been forgiven by me. The lies Obama and Mooch told I will never forget or forgive. I knew he’d be a sorry prez, my gut told me. I know Romney will take a completely different approach. We need a change in leadership and I hope we are successful. I’ve swung from being completely sure to those dark moments of the fact that it can be stolen in one state quite easily. I hope Romney supporters sweep in and he wins with a clear mandate. Romney will not squander our trust.

  133. I don’t know what to think. Everybody has thrown up their hands passing the buck. Polling is as corrupt ever as the coverage and I don’t know why we should expect anything else from these mfuckers. Only guys like Michael Barone are trying to piece it together with some honest logic behind what they say. But Ann Romney looks happy. Mitt looks happy. Their internals must be showing good stuff. So we vote and wait.

  134. Neil Cavuto has been ass kissing the dems all day on his show. Having one dem after another one, wtf is going on??? Wesley Clark seems to be beating the drum that “something else” was going on in LibyaFibya and that Ambassador Stephens was involved. Gun running??? Can’t believe at one time he was going to be a veep candidate for Hillary, he has changed so much or else I never really knew em.

    Will Mitt be campaigning any more in Ohio?

  135. Redskins lose at home.. the Redskins rule would indicate Romney wins on Tuesday. That’s not just me talking – it’s science. Or something. 🙂

    Neil Cavuto has been ass kissing the dems all day on his show.

    Clark made me sick too. Right after him Cavuto had that disgrace to his family name, Roosevelt on. You would think other Roosevelts would lock him in a closet to keep him from defaming the family name any more then he already has. The democrats must be pooping their pants to trot him out. And gosh, they just got their drawers cleaned from the collectiveshit they all took on September 11.

  138. this is why obama mentioned revenge. its on his “mind” big time because his “brain” is plotting revenge…

    Valerie Jarret – “After We Win This Election, It’s Our Turn. Payback Time.” (WSI)
    by Ulsterman on November 1, 2012 with 71 Comments in News

    Openly declared as “Obama’s Brain”, and the figure whose second story West Wing office has been described by political insiders as the true Oval Office of the Obama White House, Valerie Jarrett is letting it be known that if Barack Obama secures election victory next week, there may be, quite literally, hell to pay for those who opposed him.( “After we win this election, it’s our turn. Payback time.” )_

    NOTE: This update was forwarded to me by Wall Street Insider who indicated they received it this morning via a direct source associated with Barack Obama’s campaign headquarters in Chicago.__Thought you would be very interested to hear of this. It appears this Jarrett creature is quite confident of a victory, and has every intention of making those who opposed her, and her boy, of paying dearly for their seeming crimes against them. As Election Day is nearly upon us, more and more are willing to speak outside the inner circle. Such is the case with this message received by me this morning from a source who has been working for us via Chicago for several months now.

    Their campaign appears increasingly confident, I assume, due to the now adoring media coverage of their boy’s little march with the commoners following this week’s storm. It has been a revolting display by some in our media has it not? Here then is the most recent report I received our Chicago source. I first passed it along to our mutual friend with no response, so now I pass it along to you in the hopes you deem it worthy to publish as its sharing will serve a related purpose with another I hope to secure a favor from in the very near future. And if you have any concerns regarding the source – don’t. They are being thoroughly protected despite their understandable trepidation. As you have been. Read more in News

    And while our friend was clearly upset yesterday with how the storm altered our immediate strategies that were to have concluded this final week of the campaign, I prefer to believe all is in God’s hands, and if that was to be, then so be it. My efforts remain undiminished, if not my strength. I hope you share my belief and determination in that regard. That said, there has been movement favoring Obama over the last few days. Such is the reality that we must now deal with and plan accordingly. Crying nor profanity will assist in successfully navigating that reality.-WSI__

    HERE NOW IS THE UPDATE WSI RECEIVED VIA A SOURCE FROM CHICAGO THIS MORNING:A rep from Jarrett office was in today. She gave us a finish line pep talk and then afterwards, heard her saying how Jarrett is very excited about a 2nd term agenda and a big part of that agenda is to punish everyone who opposed them during the first term and the campaign. Strange that everything was “Ms. Jarrett wants this, and Ms. Jarrett is looking forward to that”.

    You hardly heard Obama’s name mentioned by her which I guess reinforces what people are saying. Valerie Jarrett really is the power in the White House. I know that when her representative showed up it was like royalty was visiting. All the big dogs were lined up to meet her and acting real friendly and they gave us a heads up an hour before and told us we better “put on a good show” while she was here.The part that really stuck out to me was when I overheard the rep say that Jarrett told them, “After we win this election, it’s our turn. Payback time. Everyone not with us is against us and they better be ready because we don’t forget. The ones who helped us will be rewarded, the ones who opposed us will get what they deserve. There is going to be hell to pay. Congress won’t be a problem for us this time. No election to worry about after this is over and we have two judges ready to go.” She was talking directly to about three of them. Sr. staff. And she wasn’t trying to be quiet about it at all. And they were all listening and shaking their heads and smiling while she said it.

    Pretty creepy.Why are they so confident about winning next week? We aren’t getting any numbers in the office that has any of us knowing Obama will win. It will be close. Jarrett and her people seem so confident. Why is that? Do you have any information on why she is so confident? I’m worried. Benghazi was supposed to play big this weekend. That is what everybody here was bracing for last week. You could really tell the staffers were freaking out. Now nobody is talking about it. Like it was never a concern. Like it never even happened. Don’t you have people to help with that? What happened? You said it was going to be a game changer. I told some others it would be and now I’m kind of hanging out there. Not the only one around here who got a real bad vibe after the Alex thing.

  139. I want to see Howard Kurtz of Reliable Sources eat his friggin words. I want to see an all-out freak-out by the fothermuckers who have appointed themselves news arbiters. I want them all to go down in flames along with the POS ship.

    I absolutely HATE what has been going on the past 4 years and especially the past few months with the all-out onslaught against R-2, the disgraceful Benghazzi cover-up, the despicable attempt to turn a natural disaster into a a promo for the POS.

    I have read comments from non-leftie employees at media companies and they confirm what we all feel in our guts – that the presstitutes deliberately bury good news on MR and gloss over missteps by the POS.

    We’ve all heard how the presstitutes can’t even control themselves in professional company, erupting in cheers in the press room when they perceived the POS was winning the third debate.

    We all read about the presstitutes synchcronizing their questions at an MR presser trying to catch him in a gotcha moment.

    We’ve heard their voices, not even bothering to hide their disdain, full of condescension and dismissal as they discuss R-2.

    Honestly I don’t want to be part of a society which is so horribly one sided.

    It is depressing. It is sickening.

  140. ‘Pretty creepy.Why are they so confident about winning next week? We aren’t getting any numbers in the office that has any of us knowing Obama will win.’

    It reminds me of what happened in 2008 when HRC was winning primary after primary and even took the popular vote but nothing she did seemed to matter. The fix was in. I hope that’s not what’s going on now. If it is, god help us.

  141. This at drudge.

    Gallup cites huge difference in 2008 and 2012 party affiliations.

    In 2008 the affiliation was 54% D and 42% R.

    In 2012 it’s 46 dim and 49 repub.

    You tell me how the POS wins?

    If he’s (s)elected again it’s theft, plain and simple.

    This is bringing back nightmares from 2008 when the RNC stole votes for the POS from HRC and then blackmailed her into conceding the nomination without a full delegate vote.

  142. Yep, God help us. I’m conviced Romney is gonna win in a landslide because of the voices I hear around me who are so upset about the path we are on. Those folks have to get off their asses and vote though. It’s gonna come to slog in the ditches and fight for every last vote. If you know anyone in Ohio or PA or even Florida that you can talk to, now is the time to be doing it.

  143. House Republicans may actually add to their majority on Election Day
    Posted by Aaron Blake on November 2, 2012
    The Fix now projects that the 2012 race for the House is likely to be close to a draw, and there is even a fair chance that Republicans will add to their biggest majority in six decades on Tuesday.
    Below, The Fix is updating the ratings of 10 House races, with most of them moving in the GOP’s direction….

  144. V4H,

    It’s on now. The other program ran late. Mitt isn’t there yet but scens of the crowd are live and c-span is talking over it.

  145. wow, the people in PA … soooooo cold to be out, they are brave souls 🙂 They look pumped even though he’s late it seems due to some plane delay (who said earlier that Romney better be checking their plane)

  146. I confess I don’t understand how an appearance by a pol a day or so before an election can change the outcome. Just find it difficult to believe so many are undecided.

  148. love these people with their blankets. Now this is real support 🙂 It’s been cold here today so I know PA is even colder.

  149. While waiting for Mitt the c-span moderator is taking calls. At least she seems to be alternating between repub and dim.

  150. Admin

    . “We have been busy making phone calls to get behind the scenes information and fortunately our information confirms a lot of the optimistic reports as to a Romney victory on Tuesday.”

    **************

    Any update Admin?

    Let’s get her done!!!!

  151. Oh jeez. At 6 pm it’s DWS. Don’t know if c-span will go back to MR rally. Not saying.

    Interesting, the repub callers sound so level-headed and the dims are trashing MR personally.

  152. These peeps have to wait 30 more minutes. Wow, they are gonna be cold.

    The woman on CSpan is speaking to Romney’s love of country. She is hopeful for this time.

    Some stupid young male calling Romney a liar, he sounds so ignorant. Most likely some college student who does not even know the workings of life.

    What about BroncoBammy’s “bitter, clinging to guns and bibles”

    He is living in a fantasy world, gonna take longer to clean it up …well buddy just WHAT is BroncoBammy proposing different than the last 4 years that have been a total nightmare.

  153. OK. When Mitt arrives c-span will go back to the rally. But now it’s hide your eyes DWS. I’m off for now.

  154. oh god DWS .. what a fucking dork! Hate that woman and that is saying it in a nice way. I loathe her and her LIES

  155. Neil Cavuto has been ass kissing the dems all day on his show. Having one dem after another one, wtf is going on??? Wesley Clark seems to be beating the drum that “something else” was going on in LibyaFibya and that Ambassador Stephens was involved. Gun running???

    ——–

    I was listening to that show too and it got me so depressed I went into a mini meltdown.

    All the good news is speculation and snapshots of R2 enthusiasm brings up our hopes….then a crapass show like Cavuto comes on and it feels like the depression of 2008 all over again.

    I can’t even think of how we will all feel if the empty suit isn’t sent packing…

  156. Hehehe. I like this guy Corbett. He’s telling the crowd to take pix and send to the media coz the story of enthusiasm for Mitt is not being reported.

  157. I did a sign waving yesterday at the very busy intersection of SR56 and Bruce B Downs in North Tampa, FL yesterday. I heard that there was going to be a pro-Romney sign waving attempt, but I didn’t coordinate with the people who were trying to set it up. I arrived after it started. I found a group of 7 or 8 people at this intersection. I parked my truck on the opposing side of the intersection, and stood by myself across from the other sign wavers. I had a ” Fire Obama” sign which no one else had. I was flipped the bird several times and told “Fuck you!” by one white lady driver who had to yell past the kid sitting next to her in the passenger seat. Classy, right?

    Anyway, after standing there for an hour, a group of 4 young black females decided to raid my space with an Obama sign. The one female (all were about 18 to 20 y/o) had the sign and she was jumping around while saying “gimme my welfare”, and other similarly stupid things. She was SERIOUS and I was flabbergasted. There was some beeping of car horns which had been happening sporadically since I had been standing there, but she took it as meaning people were honking for her sign. She looked at me and said “looks like you ain’t gettin’ any love”. F@cking ghetto trash, believe me. Three of the four then ran across this busy intersection to where the other Romney supporters were, only to jump around like the assholes they were. Meanwhile, I was jokingly holding my “Fire Obama” sign above the girl’s head who had stayed on the corner where I was. She didn’t want to be seen with that sign near her, lol!

    After these retards decided to come back across the road, and leave, I turned to see one of them ripping my Romney sign from the back of my truck. They didn’t know it was my vehicle. I ran in their direction as I told her to give me the sign back, and then said I’ll take your license number as she ran back to the SUV that they were in that then sped out of the parking lot. I thought that she had taken the sign, but bushes were blocking my vision, and she had dropped it on the ground before she got into the SUV. The fact that the little bitxh would take something from my truck pissed me off.

    So much for Obama’s uniter image. He is encouraging this behavior. I hope that he gets trounced.

    Just to let you know, I received much more positive response than negative, but the negative was 98% vile. Much of the positive response was from females. I even got a thumbs up and a honk of the horn from an SUV with Muslim occupants (as the female paasenger was in a muslim headdress). That surprised me. When it comes to expressing one’s sentiments, I don’t mind a thumbs down response, but middle fingers and nasty verbiage shows the quality of Obama’s supporters. They are a bunch of misfits.

  158. Corbett told crowd to use social media to document the rally to get around the government-media complex.

    Cracking up.

  159. Can’t believe how stupid some people are. That last female caller on CSPAN saying Romney gonna send all your jobs overseas. These people NEED to get out mroe.

  160. Our campaign has become a movement. I want to be worthy of your support and speak for the aspirations of all Americans. Respect and good will go a long way. I won’t just represent one party. I will represent one nation.

    USA! USA!

    POS calls his plan forward. I call it forewarned.

  161. Stunning rallye 🙂 Full of hope for America. You are right Gonzo maybe Romney is the one we been waiting for all along. I’ve watched him for a while now and I have to honestly say that the man is so much in love with this country, his family and he just oozes the desire to work for US, not us just give to him.

    I love how he is lingering. TEARS in his eyes. He is so emotional 🙂

  162. dot,

    Not the right place of setting for that sleepy music. Even I was Born Free does not work coz of the tempo and dynamics changes. Need something with a pounding beat and a soaring melody.

  163. You know, Mitt comes across as a nice man, not some blood sucking, dream smashing, middle class eating, rich zombie. I won’t have any regrets voting for him.

    By the way, I passed two different libraries where there were long lines of people standing outside. One was located in what I think is considered Zephyr Hills which is Pasco County, Florida, while the other was in Lakeland which is in Polk county. Up until the moment that I witnessed this, I hadn’t realized that Florida had early in house voting. I suspect that the Lakeland location had pro-Obama supporters based on its location and the racial make up of the people in line. Yes, I base my comment on the race of the people standing in line which had to be 90% black. The other location was predominately white, and since it was located in a more conservative location, I assume that the voters were less likely to be Obama supporters. I mention these observations to show that people ARE voting, and each side seems to be getting their supporters to the polls.

  164. Nomobama

    Sorry you were so harrased and proud of you for not giving up.

    Reminds me of Denver in 2008 where us Hillary supporters were messed with by AA O’supporters. I almost got into a physical fight with this huge guy that joined our traveling group, chanting out for Hillary, and as we finished saying her name, he would scream out, “Monica!”

    Another PUMA female saw me put out my foot to trip this mfu@ker, and this woman janked me away from him before he noticed. I was livid.

  165. The POS will not get and has not gotten the 2008 turnout. Hell, the voters are not turning out for him even in Chicago. The only way he wins is through fraud.

  166. READ THIS jbstonesfan.

    Massive Decrease in Early and Absentee Voting—in Chicago

    11:56 AM, Nov 4, 2012 • By DANIEL HALPER

    The Illinois Republican party claims early and absentee voting has precipitously fallen since the 2008 presidential election.

    According to the numbers, at this point in 2008, there were 260,376 early voters and 304,290 absentee voters. Now, the party maintains, there are 195,064 early voters and 46,232 absentee voters. That’s a loss of 57 percent of voters, since the last election.

    http://weeklystandard.com/blogs/massive-decrease-early-and-absentee-voting-chicago_660299.html

  167. Maybe Mitt should have also used, ‘Don’t stop thinking about tomorrow’, the Big Dawg has been very generous with his name, policies and why not his victory song?

    Teasing, I still love Bill and Hillary.

  168. 😳

    Meant to add:

    This, the Illinois Republican party says, is a terrible sign for Democrats.

    “Chicago is the heart and soul of the Democratic Party,” says Illinois Republican party chair Pat Brady. “You can’t get much more solid blue than Chicago and of course it’s the President’s home base – literally. If voter participation in the President’s home base is down 57% from four years ago, the President is in serous trouble nationally.”

    President Barack Obama’s reelection headquarters are located in his hometown of Chicago.

  169. Chicago is the heart and soul of the Democratic Party

    ——–
    No heart and no soul with this gang of thugs.

    They need to open up a single chair factory, and a side business of empty suits.

  170. Basil, if Romneyn wins, what do you think our sagacious adm. does with this great site? I am not as invested in the Clinton’s anymore. Beating Obama is the only thing I really care about. Bill and Hill kinda let me down.

  171. Barry is skinny as a stick, the more I see him in his white shirts in his rallies, the more I think his shirts are padded.

  172. 30,000+ Rally for Romney in Pennsylvania

    An enormous rally for Mitt Romney in Bucks County, PA had people incredulous and tweeting like fury:

    @robertcostaNRO my mother is at the Bucks County Romney rally. Says she has never seen a crowd like this. Dwarfs the Bush ’04 rally crowd at the same farm.

    @robertcostaNRO “The rally doesn’t even start for hours, but it feels like a Republican Woodstock.” — my mom, calling from Yardley, PA, a swing area.

    @itabramg Traffic backup at Edgewood Shopping Cntr, 1.5 miles to Romney’s rally at Shady Brook Farm, Yardley, PA #election2012

    From Twitchy:

    The rally isn’t scheduled to begin until 5:30 pm ET, but tens of thousands of Pennsylvanians have already descended on Bucks County, Pa., to show their support for Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney. The Pa. rally comes on the heels of a massive rally in Cleveland just hours ago.

    How big is the crowd? No official figures yet, but some Twitter users say at least 25,000:

    @klittleton1 At Romney Victory Rally in Yardley PA. More security here than #Benghazi at least 25k-30k #tcot

    @fran chambers According to a source familiar with tonight’s Romney event, 30,000 people are expected to attend.

    Sorry to reply when this wasn’t asked of me….but I expect that our admin will still support Hillary and hold Mitt, Repugs and Dims feet to the fire.

    If admin turned against Hillary, ( which I am sure would not happen), I would leave this site…

  174. jb I am not sure what Hillaryis44 plans to do. I’ll be here to lend my voice as I can. Hillary always will be the real 44th President of the US but we all know how that ended

  175. I can’t believe that OTURD is using President Clintons old songs and platform. I personally am beginning to loathe Bill Clinton

  176. Riding Clintons coat tails. Bill makes me sick, making stupid jokes. I can’t stand to see Bill up there but I have to admit that joke may backfire. STEALING COOKIES

    haha Oturd is very nervous about PA

  177. I just tuned into Fox and saw BC campaigning like crazy for the POS complete with his 1990’s theme song, Don’t Stop Thinking about Tomorrow.

    Honestly, this is a complete turn-off for me. An irreconcilable and total turnoff.

    Period.

  178. Romney trying to get 300,000 evangelicals to the polls in Ohio. If he gets the turn out he’ll steam roll over Oturdo

  179. That propaganda movie about Bin Laden is on right now. Right off the bat there is footage of Obama (I think it was at that recent dinner he and Romney attended)and also video of him making comments about how we will get Bin Laden blah, blah, blah. next to comments by George Bush. I’I wonder how they treat Romney in the movie–there was some controversy about that and the National Geographic channel demanded some changes (but who knows if they were substantial or not).

  180. I would never suggest anyone turn on Hillary or Bill. My personal feelings are that Bill was a great President and Hillary was cheated out of the POTUS in 08. Today, I feel Bill just can’t let his ego step out of the spot light, even at the expense of propping a guy whose supporters labeled him a racist in 08. As for Hillary, no harder working SOS, but objectively, the policies she had to carry out for this administration will not be looked at kindly in the history books. Just my opinion.

  181. To me, a sure sign that the Obama campaign is in serious trouble is that they are overtly using Bill Clinton, his music, and his residual goodwill with Democrats to try to gain votes. It won’t work–Bill’s name isn’t on the ballot and there are bigger things on voters minds this election IMO than party loyalty.

    As for Bill Clinton-I agree with some others here–I think he is campaigning for the Democratic party and to keep his standing with the party. He’s made plenty of comments throughout the campaign that certainly seem at odds with his involvement including the recent one where he said something about being one of the few enthused with the Obama campaign (which I think was dig at Obama).

  182. What good is standing with the party though now for Bill Clinton. He’s an icon. Why try to help a loser ruin the country for 4 more years? I guess that is what a lot of us can’t understand. It really is party over people for them in the long run.

  183. dot, he could have been the elder statesman not getting drawn into day to day campaigning. Let Obama try to win on his own record. I wonder if he is forced to do all this.

  184. Only if Hillary is planning on running he would he be forced IMO as he would need Obama’s help in 2016. If she does not run, and Bill has helped Obama get re-elected how can any of us here feel good about it?

  185. Was listening to all the states that are totally tied up that BronoBammy should be winning and yep the groundswell, tsunami, Hurricane Mitt is getting ready to hit. Having to have Bill Clinton babysit PA has them sweating bullets. This one guy on Fox said they’d not be spending $ there if they didn’t see the need or sending people there. Why should an incumbent have to rallye his base if he’d done such a great job. I mean, really. If he had been exceptional and the country was doing great I’m sure I’d have decided to vote for him.

  186. pm317
    November 4th, 2012 at 10:08 pm

    Bill is forcing himself. I think he figures if Romney wins, Hillary has no chance in ’16 (and she doesn’t), but if O wins, she has a flicker of a chance (I don’t think she does, but he must believe). He may even think he will have enough of infleuce on O’s second term to make it conducive to Hillary’s candidacy. He doesn’t know the scorpion story.

    But in the end all of this is for nought, I think. At this point, O’s campaign is for turnout – to bring his 08 voters to the polls. Which Obama 08 voter would go to the polls, because of Bill’s campaign? So all of this Bill’s show is to fill up campaign space and airwaves, but it will accomplish nothing in my view.

  187. Obama is busy on the campaign trail as a Northeaster descends on millions of Sandy victims without power. So where are the generators?

    http://www.aol.com/video/few-big-fema-generators-humming/517523925/?ncid=wsc-video-cards-headline

    Oh, but you’ll never guess what? They are going to have them at the polling places for election day.

    http://online.wsj.com/article/AP3092703ff93d4ff2911a1dbad903e870.html

    Where is all that Green Energy? Obama is not going to call that industry up on all the Billions invested by taxpayers because he has got it back from them in campaign finance kickbacks.

    bUCK Farack

  188. JB, I agree with you. I will never feel good about what Bill Clinton has done here. He could have offered a couple stops, feigned sickness, etc other ways to distance himself.

    Hillary won’t be running. Once all the LibyaFibya comes out we’ll probably be seeing Oturdo impeached if he steals this election.

    There is seriously some thing not right about Benghazi, the story is coming out. We were doing something there we shouldn’t have been doing and the men died because they have to hide it. However, Fast and Furious faded right before our eyes so I won’t hold my breath

  189. Hannity going over all the issues that people have been polled on and in freakin category Romney just smashes Oturdo. I just can’t see how the polls are this close unless a lot of lying is going on.

    “It’s hard to quantify, but there is significantly less enthusiasm,” said Roan. “I think there’s sort of grim determination on the part of some people, more than enthusiasm. … And it shows up in our volunteers. … We don’t have the number of young people volunteering like we did last time.”

    In new CNN poll, Romney leads independents 59-35!! Topline appears tied, but sample is D +11 http://bit.ly/TEhqQa

    (warning – 57 page .pdf file – large)

  193. (11/3/2012) “Sunday Reflection: The ground-glass election” (The Examiner)
    http://washingtonexaminer.com/sunday-reflection-the-ground-glass-election/article/2512449#.UJclTY7CEUV

    Last week, I noticed this blog comment: “Romney was not my first, second, or third choice, but I will crawl over ground glass to vote for him.”

    A lot of Republicans — and, judging from polls, a lot of independents — feel this way. If there are enough of them, Romney will win, and win big.

    Are there? Well, there are some signs. I’ve written here before that politics is all about showing up. And in recent months, people on the Right have been doing a lot of showing up. They’ve showed up at Romney-Ryan events in unprecedented numbers. They made Dinesh D’Souza’s “2016: Obama’s America” a huge hit despite a virtual blackout from traditional media. They stood in line for hours at Chick-fil-A restaurants to buy chicken sandwiches in response to politicians’ bullying. They packed houses at the “Hating Breitbart” premiere.
    Will they now pack the voting booths and vote for Romney, and against Obama, in similarly unprecedented numbers? If they do, Romney will win in a landslide.

    It’s hard to judge from the polls and the pundits. Last year, we were told that Romney couldn’t win unless he could appeal to independents. Now that he’s got a double-digit lead among independents in most polls, we’re told that it doesn’t matter.

    In 2008, there were a lot of Democrats who would have crawled across broken glass to vote for Barack Obama. This time around, there probably aren’t as many.

    Electing our first black president isn’t a big deal this time around; we’ve already done it. And it’s not as though Obama has lived up to his promises. Guantanamo Bay is still open, we’re at war across the Middle East (waging it less competently, perhaps, but still at war, and in new places), the promised economic recovery has never materialized, and, heck, Obama’s even cracking down on marijuana users. Where’s the hope and change in that?

    For the anti-Obama vote, on the other hand, there’s no disappointment. Getting rid of Obama, as the quote at the beginning of this column illustrates, is goal enough. Even for those who weren’t big Romney supporters in the primaries, a vote for Romney is a vote to get rid of Obama, and that’s sufficient. Those who thought that staying home in 2008 would teach the GOP a lesson have mostly either reconsidered, or decided that the lesson was learned, or that further lessons would be too costly for America.

    For a lot of people, the thought is that four years of Obama might be damaging but survivable, while eight years of Obama might — in the president’s own words — “fundamentally transform America” in a way that they don’t like.

    Ultimately, the question is whether “a lot of people” will be enough people to overcome Obama’s own showing-up mechanisms, which include unions’ formidable get-out-the-vote operations and the still-extant remnants of organizations like ACORN.

    There’s no way to know the answer to that until next week. But if the answer is important to you, I have one suggestion: Show up.

    Examiner Sunday Reflections Contributor Glenn Harlan Reynolds is a University of Tennessee law professor and author of the Instapundit blog.

  194. How can they think that Obama going to NJ to do his fucking job that we pay him to do IS “acting presidential” God damn, he was doing his fucking job.

  195. A beautiful sight. I especially liked the last minute of his speech. They should have used the Theme from Rocky for the end of the rally, too. It should always end with lots of energy.

  196. When didn’t Bill Richardson look like a fool?

    ————

    On Hillary running, I’m afraid that everything Obama touches gets tarnished. Three people I respected are losers in the Benghazi cover-up: Hillary Clinton, Leon Panetta, and David Patraeus. They all are drenched in slime… And sliming each other to protect the One.

  197. Juan Williams is getting on my nerves big time. I’m sick of him on FOX. I wish they would quit detaching Juan from BO’s back side to bring him on as a pundit…just leave him where he wants to be!!

    ____________________________

    He got on my nerves long time ago! Plus he has a very bad temper and shows it a lot when contradicted.

  199. I want Obama to lose. I want to defeat the corrupt media. I would have voted for Romney to accomplish that. But having followed Romney through this campaign, I have come to like him. I think he is a good, decent, honorable, intelligent, and serious man to at least try and solve the problems we have with unemployment and economy. His speeches are now more than inspirational. He is hitting all the right lines.

    Watching him in Newport News, VA.

  200. With those numbers on Independents, I would have thought Mitt wins convincingly, but
    the polls all seem to be within the 3-4% margin for error. It’s going to be a long, long
    night Tuesday, but I am proud, either way, to be part of a board that feels the outrage
    that I have felt these past 4 years. If Mitt wins we will all be dancing in the street. However, should Obama win I refuse to let it destroy me. He has been exposed as just
    another politician. Nothing special about him at all. Very little will get one with a GOP
    house and probably a 52-48 democratic senate. The economy will improve despite him. Israel will also survive , albeit with difficulty, because most Americans still support
    her. In the end, lets pray for a Romney victory, but if necessary, continue to fight
    for the values and principles that made our country great.

  201. I support Scott Brown but I took my two girls to the Elizabeth Warren rally today (Sunday). I thought it would be a good experience for them and they did seem to enjoy it.

    It was at a small high school auditorium that only holds about 300 people but there was a standing room crowd. I’m guessing that there were about 350 people. Although that might be partly due to people trickling in from another event being held at the same time.

    Elizabeth Warren was supposed to be there at 1:30. For some reason Sen. Kerry didn’t introduce her until about 1:55. We were in the back and I heard someone say “he’s been talking about Romney for 15 minutes” and about one or two minutes later Kerry said something to the effect that “enough about Romney” but Romney is relevant because blah blah blah. I’m guessing the person I overheard was actually with Warren’s campaign and someone gave Kerry the high sign to shift gears from Romney to Brown.

    Maybe it’s wishful thinking on my part but Kerry almost seemed to be stumping for the President; Warren seemed like an afterthought. He took a couple of cheap shots at Romney that I can’t remember well enough to describe but the crowd seemed to respond to with mild enthusiasm.

  202. Dick Morris on Greta is upping his previous forecast. 325 Ev for R includes OH, PA, WI and MN. Pop vote by 5-7% for R.
    Landslide!

  203. I just saw a clip of Clinton stumping for Obama. He looks like heck. His voice is really hoarse and he seems a little “off”.

    I hope he gets some rest after Tuesday.

    BTW, in my humble opinion although Clinton is campaigning for him I don’t think his efforts are all that helpful; and I suspect that might actually be his intention. As for why he he is going through the motions I do wonder whether he and Hillary may have political aspirations for Chelsea, or at least are trying to keep that option open for her.

  204. Hi, someone asked about the Bin Laden movie earlier and ads by Navy Seals. I actually didn’t watch much of it except the first few minutes (I found it boring). I did record it on my computer however–I just did a quick scan through and didn’t see any protest ads but I will need to actually watch it completely as I could have missed them.

  205. Yeah, Morris’ logic is believable. Now let us not get complacent. Show up and vote whatever it takes. I am in the very blue MD but I will vote to affect popular vote for Romney, and as my husband recently reminded me, it is never a waste.

  206. Joe Trippi is pushing O turnout model. When Greata pins, he evades and is too general. Not as detailed as Dick Morris. Greta wants details and he can’t give any. She says bye. 🙂

  207. I heard on NPR earlier today that based on their analysis of polls, they believe Obama will win. Cited info from a poll (did not indicate who did polling) indicating that 10% of early voters for Obama were first time voters. They didn’t say whether they were dead or alive, nor did they indicate how many times they have voted.

    NPR, of course, is totally in tank for O. They try to disguise and cover their bias better than MSM, but nonetheless, they are biased. Probably very loosely interpreting some of the data. But, this number – 10% is a sure sign that his campaign is totally using the early voting to cheat their tales off.

  208. Well, Byron York said he was at an Obama rally in OH that had 15K crowd and he said it was hard to see the enthusiasm gap. Fuck Ohio.

  209. Has anyone else seen the Obama public service announcement type ads in which he describes just how wonderful the Red Cross is and implores the viewer to donate?

    Could this be his “heck of a job Brownie” moment?

  210. I feel good about Tuesday (I’m planning a day of pampering that day). Mitt will prevail. The only question is by how much. A vote for R/R is not just a vote against Obama and his regressive Party, but a vote against his butt-snorkling media. To be sure, Mathews will have a nervous breakdown. (Can’t wait to see that on Jay Leno.)

    On another note, did anyone see the beginning of SNL? The sign language skit was hilarious! (Sorry about the initial commercial.)

    http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/11/03/snl-bloombergs-sign-language-interpreter_n_2070670.html

  211. NPR? Cover their bias? When? Their panels are usually all liberals, unless you count the occasional fake Republican like David Brooks.

    I’m so sick of that game. Balance is getting one of a dozen pundits who claim to be Republicans, but always end up liking the Democrat or pooh-poohing the Republican in the race.

    At least Fox gets a real Democrat (Juan Williams, etc.) for their panels.

  212. Do you truly believe that at this point in the race, there are actually people who have no idea who they are going to vote for? I just saw some dude interviewed on tv who said he just didn’t know who he was going to give his vote to.

    I’ve been giving you a run for your money today after that Cavuto show.

    The polls are almost even and I am worried.

  214. We all are. I have found that other than Hannity(whom I can’t stand), Fox has been
    on the bandwagon for Obama for awhile.

  215. Good night all as I have an 8:45am motion calendar. Look forward to one last great
    article from adm tomorrow or Tuesday.

  216. Thanks, pm. The skit cracks me up! Apparently the actress Mary Matlin (who uses sign language) was offended by the SNL skit. But SNL wasn’t making fun of sign language per se (as she claims), but of the wildly expressive interpreter. (Interpreters usually bland in with he background, but this was not the case with Callas during Bloomberg’s telecast.)

    TwoGirls, I saw it twice during Greta! What is up with that?

    It seems obvious to me that Obama and the Red Cross are using each other. Obama gets to extend his 15 minutes of appearing presidential in a time of crisis –and gets free advertising to that effect courtesy of the Red Cross– and the Red Cross has one super cool dude vouching for them at a time when their commitment to helping people during this same time of crisis is in question.

  218. Obama is out there in Colorado , I am telling you he is crazy! He is tweeking his nose picking his ears, mumbling and making no sense! wow….. our Cocaine in Chief is at it again…

    ___________________

    I agree about the PBS news broadcasts. Why even bother with David Brooks?

    The broadcast I mentioned was on radio, while I’m sure the program hosts are just as biased as the TV reporters, this particular program did have a Republican and Democrat. one of the two was from RCP. Not sure about the other. The Republican said that they look at the data a little differently than do the Dems, and see the two candidates being virtually tied.

  220. Regarding Obama and the Red Cross teaming up – those two are a pretty good match, IMO. I recall hearing stories from older relatives about the Red Cross selling hot coffee and blankets to active duty combat soldiers – in WWII, while the Salvation Army was giving them free. I’ve heard accounts of their being less than helpful in more recent natural disasters, as well.

  221. One of New York’s most influential and traditionally Democratic media organizations pulled a stunner Sunday when it reversed its 2008 endorsement of Barack Obama to join the New York Post in endorsing Mitt Romney.

    “Four years ago, the Daily News endorsed Obama, seeing a historic figure whose intelligence, political skills and empathy with common folk positioned him to build on the small practical experience he would bring to the world’s toughest job,” the endorsement in part states. “We valued Obama’s pledge to govern with bold pragmatism and bipartisanship. The hopes of those days went unfulfilled.”

    The endorsement also ticks off a list of reasons for why the daily tabloid is backing Romney in 2012 – including smaller paychecks, fewer jobs and higher subway fares and gasoline prices.

    “America’s heart, soul, brains and muscle — the middle- and working-class people who make this nation great — have been beset for too long by sapping economic decline,” the editorial continues. “So, too, (have) New York breadwinners and families.”

    Beyond the rhetoric, the paper backs up its decision with a salvo of numbers after the 2008 financial crisis – including a 7.9 percent national jobless rate and nine million fewer jobs.

    The paper also points out the hometown crowd, with some of the most well-educated and well-paid residents in the country not spared.

    The median household income for a New York family dropped by $54 a week over that period, the paper also points out.

    The Daily News joins nearly a dozen other major U.S. newspapers in switching endorsements from Obama to Romney, according to the University of California, Santa Barbara’s American Presidency Project.

    Only one newspaper, The San Antonio Express-News, which endorsed the Republican presidential nominee in 2008, Arizona Sen. John McCain, has switched to endorsing Obama, according the survey.

    The 11 papers, according the study, that also switched to Romney are:

    The New York Daily News

    Long Island Newsday

    Houston Chronicle

    Fort Worth Star-Telegram

    Orlando Sentinel

    Ft. Lauderdale Sun-Sentinel

    Nashville Tennessean

    Des Moines Register

    Illinois Daily Herald

    Los Angeles Daily News

    Los Angeles Press-Telegram

    Shadow

    1/ At this point, I am pretty damned sure that Romney will be our next president. As I see it, he will win most of the battleground states including Pennsylvania three of the four big battleground states: Pennsylvania, Virginia, Florida. He would win Ohio, but for the cheating, which is rampant. There have been several reports of voting machines which give Romney votes to Obama. In addition, we will win Wisconsin, and Iowa. I doubt we will win Colorado or Nevada because of the massive cheating. http://www.redstate.com/2012/11/04/dem-playbook-in-action-voting-machines-stealing-colorado/. (Note: unlike Dick Morris, I did not panick when Obama shot up to 50 after his photo-op with Christy. Today he is back at 46 percent. By the Carville rule, that would mean he will get about 47 percent of the popular vote, and Romney 53 percent.

    2/ A month ago, Jerry Seib of the Wall Street Journal asked Romney’s campaign manager whether he saw any path to victory for the governor. Sieb is a bot and the thrust of his question was to suggest that Romney case was hopless. The man is easy to detest, but in reaching that erroneous conclusion he was not alone. This was the nearly unanimous opinion of those in big media–and no less the Republican establishment, including Willia Kristol. To their credit, the people on this blog, and to give credit where credit is also due, No Quarter, never succumbed to this defeatism. We knew that when the voters were shown the record as a whole, their patriotic impulse would rise to the surface, and they would realize that Obama has no vision for the future–or to be more specific, no vision that includes them.

    3/ You might wonder how big media got it so wrong. Some people will say they relied too heavily on the polls, or they traded truth for access and influence, or they saw Obama as a cash cow and built a business model around it, or they were bamboozled, or they believed that he would be a post partisan president. But if you examine their behavior in light of the Seven Deadly Sins, it becomes obvious that the explanation lies elsewhere:

    –Pride: big media considerst themselves smarter and more ethical than their viewing audience. They see themselves as the ones who set the parameters, and the tone of national discussions. They see no need to give their viewing audience both sides of a story. They set the narrative and pound it into the public head. When Russert died, they spent three solid days basking in their power to set the national agenda.

    Of all the causes which conspire to blind
    Man’s erring judgment and misguide the mind
    What the weak head with strongest bias rules
    Is pride–the never failing vice of fools.

    –Gluttony: big media has grown as fat and sloppy as Governor Chrisy. They pray to be invited to White House Parties, to be taken along on trips, and to be part of the scene. Obama is their kind of party animal. And for gladly surrender whatever integrity they have–or had.

    –Lust: it is a known fact that many members of the media have a thing for Obama. The purple prose that little bitches Andrew Sullivan, Chris Buckley, the founder of Daily Kos, heap on Obama is one example. Buckley’s description was perhaps the most graphic. But it is not just them. The swooning we see from high profile female media types like Barbara Walters, Oparah, Andrea Mitchell, Modo, Gail Collins, Campbell Brown, Katie Couric, etc. toward Obama is also in evidence. How different from the approach of classy people like Sharyl Atkisson (CBS), Meegan Kelly (FOX) who are serious journalists who are willing to speak truth to power.

    –Sloth: big media is lazy to a fault. Mindful of this fact, the Obama White House has, since the inception of his presidenty, sent out an average of twelve emails per day to big media, telling them, in effect, what to say. If big media prints them, then the White House rewards them in various ways. If big media questions them, then the find they do not get invited to press conferences, are not called up at White House briefing and are subject to other forms of reprisal. Obama wants a lapdog media and they have been complicit in their own demise

    –Greed: Pat Caddell has delivered the most brilliant indictment of big media on record. He does not scruple to label them what they are–the Enemy of The American People. Their unwillingness to inform the public on Fast and Furious, Benghazi, the material breach of our federal election laws by Obama, etc. are motivated by one thing: greed, and more broadly, self-aggrandisement. By withholding vital information, big media has effectively disenfrancised the American People.

    –Wrath: the vile and persistent attacks big media has launched against Hillary, the Tea Party, Sarah Palin, Mitt Romney, and the public at large, have been far beyond the pale and uncivilized. They play the race card every chance they get, fabricate evidence as we say in the Florida case, and when it comes to debates, they schlep Obama an advance copy of the debate questions, and they double team Romney.

    4/ As Jay Cost points out in a recent article, he no longer believes that public opinion polls are reliable, and in some cases, they are materially misleading, for many reasons. First, they assume 2008 turnout levels. Second, they overweight democrats. Third they fail to account for the 2010 route. Fourth, they fail to account for the net change in the voter identification since 2008 from +3 d to +12 R according to gallup. Fifth, pollsters are unable to reach people on cellphones. Sixth, polls cannot measure voter intensity, which governs the decision to stay home or vote. In short, the election process is more art than science, and must be informed by history. So even if big media was not as partisan, corrupt and anti American as they are, their reliance on polling alone would lead to erroneous assessemets.

    5/ Lastly, I spoke to a close friend this afternoon, and she laid out an impressive case for impeachment against the messiah. The legal question would be whether Obama’s actions and inactions rise to the level of high crimes and misdemanors. As previously indicated, the case must be seen in terms of before, during and after–the way any leagal case must be viewed.

    The before aspect would consist of the failure by Obama to provide enhanced security based on the entire res gestae–the prior attacks on them embassy, the chatter by terrorists, the withdrawal of the British and Red Cross, and the cables from Hillary. This would be a misdemeanor.
    (Note: today on Chris Wallace, Axelrod renewed Obama’s claim of ignorance and put the blame on Hillary.)

    The during aspect is where the high crime occurred. Inasmuch as the military was ready willing and able to rescue the the SEALS, but the president refused to give the necessary order for no good reason, and thereby breached his oath of office. This was not a situation which required discretion. It required execution. And his failure to execute cost the lives of four people. The motive here is irrelevant. He is guilty of a high crime.

    The after aspect consists of the false story about the video causing this disaster and the false claim that he gave the order to rescue them, only there is no such order. This would be viewed as a misdemeanor.

    6/ Will an impeachment action go forward? Normally this would involve the appointment of a special prosecutor, and the democrats in congress ever anxious to protect their party leader regardless of the crime, would block such action. In this case however, there is enought information available through leaks to start the process. It would begin in the House, and with the leadership of Darrell Issa a bill of impeachment would be handed down on strict party lines. Democrats would scream bloody murder about racism etc. It would then go the senate for a trial and senate democrats under Harry Reid, Dick Durbin and Schumer would move to kill it. That is where it would stall. When Nixon found himself in a similar situation, Republicans met with him and convinced him to resign and spare the country the trauma of an impeachment. I doubt this would happen here because we do not have that caliber of leadership in the Democratic Party, they are pertified of him, worried about race riots and he will never resign.

    7/ My friend believes I am wrong about this. She thinks that with enough time, the case would move forward. For one thing, the military is pushing this very hard, and he military is very popular in the country. FOX and CBS will continue to push the case so it will not go away. She points out that the Washingon Post wrote over 200 articles about Watergate, before it became a major story, and not until after Nixon was re elected. She agrees with me that Obama will not step down voluntarily under threat of impeachment. So it will be up to the democrats in the senate to act, and unlike me, she thinks they will be forced to do so. Also, she does not think an impeachment would lead to national riots by black people, except perhaps in urban centers, like Los Angeles, Detroit, Philadelphia, etc.

    8/ This is a hypothetical scenario however, because when Romney wins, he will want to unite the country and put this issue behind us. Consequently, Obama will get a slap on the wrist and will go on to bigger and better things on the global stage, because he is of course the messiah, and has told us repeatedly this is his last campaign. Axelrod, in a repulsive effort to incite lust of Obama lovers, says he is campaigning from his loins. I would say he is campaigning out of his ass, and if it were my call I would send the lying murderer to jail–but that is just me. But when it is all over, some people may wonder aloud, was all this worth it just to say we had our first black president? Or will they agree with what Pat Buchanan said: if we are to have our first black president, let us at least be sure he is the right black president, lest the symbol become negative, rather than positive.

  223. I’ve a good mind to skip today and everyone perhaps everyone needs to take a lot of time to themselves and have breaks today because tomorrow is the fun time. Maybe i’ll just spend the day relaxing because the cake is baked, whatever happens happens.

    So that whole Gloria Allred thing was one big superdud was’nt it. Obama did’nt attack Iran or Libya, nothing basically happened the last week other than Sandy and even that looks bad for public officials right now.

    Been reading today the people of Connecticut are also pissed at Dem officials and the party over the response to Sandy.

    Pissed people tend to go vote and its usually a form of protest, this may well help Romney and McMahon in Conn and other places.

    Can anyone explain to me just exactly Obama did to garner wonderful praise on Sandy because the way i see it right now is he got a few phone calls took a few photos and that was it.

    If there is a surprise tomorrow, watch Connecticut……….

    I’ll be here all day tomorrow right from when polls open at 6AM. Don’t bother putting on your tv tomorrow, the action will all be here because official TV and media cannot say anything about the election on election day until polls close.

    Will be in and out on a low basis today.

    All i’ll say is it is looking very good

  224. Admin: isn’t gigi georges the one who produced the movie on the caucus fraud and intimidation in the caucuses?

  225. I see now that I am wrong. I also see that democraticn underground has labeled her a traitor. The du people–d u as in duhhh, are the traitors–traitors to the party. Traitors to the country.

  226. My goals: in no particular order

    1/ Obama loses the election

    2/ Obama goes to jail

    3/ CNN, ABC, NBC, NYT lose their audience

    4/ CNN, ABC, NBC, NYT lose their sponsors

    5/ Washington DC suffers an economic depression

    ———————————–

    The world they live in . . . .

    That 2010 ejection from the U.S. House, and from state legislatures and governors’ offices across the country, didn’t happen inside the Washington Beltway world.

    It didn’t reflect the Democrats’ or the media’s conventional wisdom or voter-turnout models. So it just wasn’t part of their reality.

    In Democrats’ minds, it was never a question of “How did we lose Main Street?” Instead, it was the fault of the “tea party” or of crazy right-wing Republicans.

    Never interrupt an enemy in the middle of a mistake.

    Obama’s Mojo is No Mo

    By Larry Johnson on November 4, 2012 at 1:35 PM in Current Affairs

    My, what a difference 4 years of incompetence can make when it comes to judging a President. In 2008, Barack Obama was the new Messiah. An aura of Hope and Change shrouded his visage. People loved his ass. Didn’t matter that he had no record. Didn’t matter that he had no accomplishments in managing or running anything of substance. He was the black Moses, come to lead us to da promise land.

    Four years later, we got coyote ugly. In our inebriated stage we took a beauty/hunk home and woke up with a troll with bad breath (note, coyote ugly can apply to male or female). The really amazing change are the surprising newspaper endorsements of Mitt Romney.

    Wisconsin commie anyone? Check out the Wisconsin State Journal:

    Not enough hope and too little change.

    That is President Barack Obama’s record on the economy, debt and Washington gridlock after four years in the White House.

    The State Journal editorial board endorses Mitt Romney in Tuesday’s presidential election.
    Romney showed as the Republican governor of Democratic-leaning Massachusetts that he can find agreement across the partisan divide. And his vice presidential pick — Wisconsin’s U.S. Rep. Paul Ryan, R-Janesville — suggests Romney is serious about tackling America’s fiscal mess.

    Romney has an impressive record of success in the private and public sectors. He’s a numbers guy who focuses more on results than ideology. That’s why so many of his fellow Republicans during the GOP primary criticized him for not being conservative enough.

    Romney has been a strong leader in business and civic life. This includes turning around many troubled companies and the 2002 Winter Olympics.

    Romney better understands how and why entrepreneurs and employers decide to expand and add jobs. He’s more likely to get the private-sector going strong again.

    Romney displayed reasonableness and smarts during the debates. And his view on the most pressing foreign policy question — Iran — is similar to his opponent’s.

    Yes, Romney did his share of flip-flopping and pandering during the GOP primary to get past stubborn party stalwarts. Yes, Romney’s talk of repealing the Affordable Care Act and boosting military spending are unrealistic. We disagree with Romney on a host of social issues, from marriage equality to abortion rights.

    For those of you who do not know Wisconsin, this is akin to the New York Times endorsing Romney. But the hits don’t stop there. How about the New York Daily News?

    Four years ago, the Daily News endorsed Obama, seeing a historic figure whose intelligence, political skills and empathy with common folk positioned him to build on the small practical experience he would bring to the world’s toughest job. We valued Obama’s pledge to govern with bold pragmatism and bipartisanship.

    The hopes of those days went unfulfilled.

    Achingly slow job creation has left the U.S. with 4.3 million fewer positions than provided incomes to Americans in 2007. Half the new jobs have been part-time, lower-wage slots, a trend that has ruinously sped a hollowing of the middle class.

    The official unemployment rate stands at 7.9%, marking only the second month below 8% after 43 months above that level. Worse, add people who are working part-time because they have no better choice and the rate leaps to almost 15%. Still worse, add 8 million people who have given up looking for employment and the number who are out of jobs or who are cobbling together hours to scrape by hits some 23 million people.
    Only America’s social safety net, record deficits and the Federal Reserve’s unprecedented low-interest policies have kept the label Great Depression II on the shelf.

    New Yorkers have fared no better. The state is alone among the 50 in suffering significantly rising unemployment over the last 12 months, with the rate now at 8.9%. The city’s pain index is 8.8%, and the five boroughs have been trading down in salaries.

    Something big is underway and the Dems are missing the big picture. Salena Zito has her fingers on the pulse of the body politic:

    The homemade sign for Mitt Romney in the yard of a well-manicured but modest home in Leadville, Colo., forlornly signals the fracture of another onetime supporter of Barack Obama.

    If Romney wins the presidency on Tuesday, the national media, the Washington establishment and the bulk of academia will have missed something huge that happened in “flyover” America under their watch.

    It is a story that few have told.

    It reminds one of the famous quip by New Yorker film critic Pauline Kael following Richard Nixon’s landslide 1972 victory: “I live in a rather special world. I only know one person who voted for Nixon.”

    Two years after suffering a historic shellacking in the 2010 midterm election, Democrats astonishingly have ignored Main Street Americans’ unhappiness.

    That 2010 ejection from the U.S. House, and from state legislatures and governors’ offices across the country, didn’t happen inside the Washington Beltway world.

    It didn’t reflect the Democrats’ or the media’s conventional wisdom or voter-turnout models. So it just wasn’t part of their reality.

    In Democrats’ minds, it was never a question of “How did we lose Main Street?” Instead, it was the fault of the “tea party” or of crazy right-wing Republicans.

    Yet in interview after interview — in Colorado, along Nebraska’s plains, in small Iowa towns or Wisconsin shops, outside closed Ohio steel plants and elsewhere — many Democrats have told me they are furious with the president. Not in a frothing-at-the-mouth or racist way, as many elites suggest. They just have legitimate concerns affecting their lives.

    Be sure to read the rest of her excellent reporting. Obama ain’t walking on water this time.

  227. Bloomberg looks like a malevolent little tortise–head on, profile, leathery skin, he is reptillian. He is a walking example of the peter principle. He has no political future beyond that.

  228. If Obama is impeached, I want to shine the light of publicity on the newspapers who endorsed him, and his treason. In particular, NYT and WASHPO who tried to cover it up by not reporting on it.

    If Washinton DC got hit with a major depression, it would be character building for their inhabitants. For too long they have had everything their way, and were indifferent to the suffering experienced by the rest of the country.

  229. When that man is your opening act, and then you climb on stage as President of the United States and people walk out halfway through your speech three days before the vote for your reelection, that’s not good.
    ——————————
    Not good for Obama. But very good for the country. Who needs to listen to the jack ass in chief read someone elses script through a teleprompter. Who needs to listen to Obama say things which are not true, and make promises he will never keep. Simply put, he is a bombastic elitist asshole who is not worth the time of day. That they would listen to Clinton and walk out before Obama spoke should tell him this aint 2008, and they gave him a stinging rebuke–those racists who cant stand to see a black man in the White House. By now, most Americans who are not part of his pet groups know that he fully intends to fuck them. The pattern is so clear you could make book on it. Better tell Vlad the impaler that Obama the weasel will have alot more flexibility after the election because he will be unemployed.

  230. Here comes Mort suckerman. He cooled on OB some time ago, and this was evident from the change of heart we saw in his lackey Michael Goodwin:

  231. empathy with common folk (?)
    —————————-
    Obama is a demagogue. He is a manipulator of the public, and there’s nothing empathetic about it.

  232. I’ve been working over the Florida early vote figures and its very good for Romney and very bad for Obama.

    Early voting has ended.I do not include independent votes in this, as i cannot say perfectly how many went for who.

    In 2008 there was 4,377,774 early votes, of this Dems accounted for 45.6% (1,996,224) and GOP accounted for 37.3% (1,632,909) a difference of 363,355.

    In 2012 at present we have 4,309,586 of this Dems account for 42.6% (1,835,883) and GOP 39.5% (1,702,286) a difference of (133,597)

    Look at that difference from 2008………229,758……..Dems down some 160,000 votes than 2008 and GOP up over 70,000.

    If Romney wins Independents in Florida, he wins big.

    Missed you, am @ work. I hope we all are here come Tuesday. What a journey this has been, I so am desperate for Romney to win. I miss all the old regulars.

    Come back, lets board this magical carpet with Romney and take America back.

  234. I see why Obama and Red Cross would team up with each other in his PSA. But my question was, is he paying for that TV time? Why would the networks/cables carry it for free so often if he not paying for it? It is like a campaign commercial. And anybody can see it as opportunistic but they let him get away with it. So that is what is up with that.

  235. Not defending Obama or Red Cross here – but if you look back, you will see that ALL Presidents do PSA’s for Red Cross doing major disasters. ALL OF THEM. And at times, First Ladies do as well.

    It SEEMS so much worse this time because of the proximity to the election. And because we cannot stand Bronco Bama

  236. With regards to the voting machines that have been recording voyes for Obama
    thay were intended for Romney, Bev Harris of the black box voting website said on the Coast to Coast radio program a few nights ago that these “errors” are NOT calibration errors of voting machines, but program errors. Think about this people. This is fraud happening in plain sight. She indicated that this type of fraud is usually not visible, but happens in the background so there are no suspicions. The way I look at this is that the one voting machine that reportedly took the female voter three tries before her vote registered correctly for Romney was programatically set up to perform that way. In other words, for every three attempts to cast a Romney vote on that particular machine, two of the votes would fraudulently get added to Obama’s total while the third vote would register correctly for Romney. If not questioned during the voting process, no one would think to question any machine that gave votes to both candidates when it came to tally the votes registered on that particular machine. Lord, I hope that there is not a lot of this type of fraud this election. It is why paper balloys should be in use. One cannot trust electronic voting. One can trust
    Bev Harris, though.

    I don’t personally remember any president shilling for the Red Cross but these types of PSA ads are common and it’s one of the many reason incumbents at any level (not just president) have an advantage.

    I guess I brought it up to get a sense of whether or not anyone else noticed the ad and whether or not they felt it was effective. It struck me as inappropriate given the reports that the Red Cross isn’t being all that helpful. If that’s a widespread perception then this may be Obama’s equivalent of Bush’s “You’re doing a heck of a job Brownie” comment.

  238. Re Morrisville PA video of Romney appearance last nite put here by nomobama November 4th, 2012 at 10:53 pm
    ————————————
    Romney was much more than 1 hour late arriving. It was cold and there were young kids there. A WPVI reporter was interviewing some in the crowd ahead of the candidate’s arrival, and no one seemed to mind the discomfort or inconvenience.
    PA Gov Corbett filled in some of the time by pointing out how poorly MSM reports the size of Romney-Ryan crowds and instructed all of them to take panoramic pix to distribute.
    Romney was stellar once more, and had one more event that evening.
    Several times the massive crowd chanted “Send him home.”

  239. Question to the Legal Eagles.

    Would a Regional Representative of HHS be in violation of the Hatch Act if he/she were promoting GOTV efforts and telling people who he/she wanted them to vote for?

  240. Morning all! Looks like the polls are tied but lots of +D going on. I’m going to be gone all day today and I’m glad, will take my mind off stuff.

    Praying hard for victory for this country.

  241. Ridiculous…..

    CNN puts out a D+11 poll and Romney ties Obama in it. Bet CNN wishes it had made that a D+14 poll instead.

  242. From Townhall this piece by Katie Palvich describes how members of NAACP commandeer a polling place in Houston TX. No one stops them.

    BREAKING: NAACP Takes Over Houston Polling Station, Advocates for President Obama =””
    Katie Pavlich

    This will take you back to 2008 – not a fun trip.

    It can be taken as a sign of desperation that the NAACP was actually talking to people in voting line about flying over to Ohio to attend an Obama rally. Wow. So poorly attended, they have to fly people in to fill seats. Hell, they probably promised them free beer, a limo to the air port, and a pony for each of their children. lol

  244. Toomey: ‘I think Gov. Romney’s going to carry Pennsylvania’
    By Justin Sink – 11/05/12

    ….”If you take a look at what happened the last time Pennsylvanians went to the polls, which is 2010, Republicans swept,” Toomey told CNN on “Starting Point.” “I won a statewide office. We elected a Republican governor. The U.S. congressional delegation and the state House assembly. So the fact is Republicans control the government at all levels by big numbers, and I think that this election is going to be much more like 2010 than 2008. I think Gov. Romney’s going to carry Pennsylvania….I’ve got to tell you the intensity and energy is absolutely electric,” Toomey said. “That rally last night, almost 40,000 people…that was just terrific. That’s the way it’s been across the commonwealth.””
    http://thehill.com/blogs/blog-briefing-room/news/265821-toomey-i-think-gov-romneys-going-to-carry-pennsylvania-

    PS:Attendance at that Morrisville rally has been reported at as low as 20,000. Some say 30,000. Toomey’s figure is the highest mentioned so far. However he is a serious, dependable Senator, so perhaps 40K is correct.

  245. Rasmussen final Virginia : Romney 50% Obama 48%.

    I don’t know what sample he used but the internals tell a different story.

    Romney has the support of 90% of Virginia Republicans and leads 58% to 37% among voters not affiliated with either of the major parties. The president has 93% backing from the state’s Democrats.

    Virginia voters trust Romney more when it comes to handling the economy by a 51% to 45% margin. The challenger leads the president by two points – 49% to 47% – in terms of voter trust when it comes to national security and energy policy. These numbers are essentially unchanged from two weeks ago.

    …………………………………..

    A 21% lead in independents and he’s only up 2…what flipping sample did he use?

  246. “In addition to that other election, now’s the time to vote for the Dishonest Reporter of 2012.

    Thanks Wbb, your thoughts are well taken and appreciated.

  248. http://www.redstate.com/2012/11/05/if-it-fits-the-narrative/
    —————
    USA Today: they lie. And when they are confronted with the truth, they attack the truthgiver. They are joined at the hip to the DNC, as you can see.

    What the democrat party represents today is an effort by the elites and the lower class to feed on the bones of them middle class. Obamas claim that he will protect the middle class is a devil’s lie. The middle class is his target. It is as simple as that.

  249. Qbama is such an obvious case of fraud on the American People, it is surprising to me that everyone has not awakened to that fact.

    In Seattle, there are no Romney signs or bumper stickers.

    Why? Part of the reason was in 2008, the publisher of a street rag called The Stranger published a list of the names and home addresses of people who had McCain signs in their yards, and some of those yards were attacked by the Obama undermechen. In addition, some of their automobiles were keyed. So most of them figured it was not worth it.

    That is the kind of country Obama has created.

    Moving forward, these people can have no credibilty. One could find common cause perhaps with some of their principaled arguments before Obama was elected, but since he was elected they have abandoned principle entirely, and endorsed the very things Bush did, when Obama did them.

    Which leads me to concur with something Thomas Crown wrote many years ago:

    “Should the entire American Left fall over dead tomorrow, I would rejoice, and order pizza to celebrate.

    They are not my countrymen;

    they are animals who happen to walk upright and make noises that approximate speech.

    They are below human.

    I look forward to seeing each and every one in Hell.”

  250. I found this at NQ, it inspired me, I thought I would share it.
    ***************************

    Cold&Tired In PA posted a comment in “One More Day” . open thread · an hour ago

    Attended the Romney rally last night in Bucks County, PA. We had just gotten our power back earlier that afternoon and it was very tempting to stay home in our now powered, warm home but hubby and I decided it was way too important to miss this moment in History. We got to the event around 4pm. It was massive! The location was a farm and parking was limited – there was no parking! The one or two lots were beyond full, we made it to an office park and made a ‘creative’ spot. I immediately noticed as we walked toward the field, many of the other cars had democrat bumper stickers from the past (Sestak, Kerry). The atmosphere was electric! It was cold and windy but everyone was so excited! It was a great crowd! We waited over an hour just to make it through the security/metal detectors. The estimate of the crowd was close to 30k, this is very easy to believe! The bleachers were already filled to capacity, the area around the stage was solid with people. We were far from the main stage but from a glimpse could see the big screen.

    As the Romney bus made its way through to the stage, the eruption of cheers took over! We could see Mitt and Ann Romney in the front seats of the bus waving to everyone! I’ve attached a few photos.

    I also want everyone to know the dynamics of the crowd and its diversity. Just from my limited perspective, I saw old, young, minorities, even folks from out of state who wanted to witness history. There were young children bundled up with their parents. There was a women with her young son who wanted to see but couldn’t. An African-American man took the child and raised him up and held him there for a bit so he could see the screen and watch.

    A woman was walking through the crowd interviewing people, I think she was writing a story for GQ. Honestly, I think the crowd would have been larger if there had been better parking. It was reminiscent to heading to a huge concert or sporting event. Everyone was so happy to be there! So friendly and positive! Leaving the event was as impressive. Without the aid of traffic police, people patiently filed out single file in their vehicles, yielding one car at a time so everyone got out at the same pace. This is the America I love and I really do hope Mitt wins PA and the election!

  254. Testing the waters here in Unicorn land….not one happy face, no verbal excitement about the election tomorrow…so far.

    No flags, no pins and very few bumper stickers anywhere.

    Will obots just slink into the voting booth knowing they are giving another free pass to a fraud?

  255. This was posted at Politico. There’s also an article entitled “If Romney Loses …” I didn’t read it closely. Also another article offering the premise that whether Romney wins or loses, there is a huge division in the Republican Party that will have to be mended.

    But, according to the article below, all is unity and bliss within the Democratic Party, because the article goes on, Democrats love them some Obama. They will all be so surprised and disappointed. They “know he came into office in a difficult time.” Dems. admire Obama if he loses the “liberal dream will die” and worse, the party will be “leaderless for the first time in a half a decade” (that’s five years – big woop. And the Clintons are the party leaders anyway.

    I swear these authors have been sprinkled with the Kool-Aide crystals. Apparently, if O gets elected, all will be well. I don’t know where they get off saying that Dems will be so thrilled to have the big 0 reelected. I think I saw that his average approval rating among Dems is only about 50%. That may be wrong, however, I’ve looked at too many poll numbers today – all of which say something different.

    If Obama loses…
    by Alexander Burns and Maggie Haberman

    “A defeat for Barack Obama on Tuesday would be no ordinary loss for Democrats.
    It would be a traumatic experience: the death of the dream of liberal realignment embodied in Obama’s insurgent 2008 campaign. And it would be all the more distressing to Democrats because so many of them fervently believe they will win tomorrow.

    Unlike Republicans, many of whom have no particular love for their nominee, Democrats admire and sympathize with the president, understanding he came into office at a difficult time. If Obama were to lose, Democrats would suddenly be leaderless for the first time in half a decade and would be forced to confront agonizing questions about the viability of their party’s agenda — health care reform, most of all.
    Here’s POLITICO’s preview of how Democrats would try to explain an Obama defeat — including some of the foreseeable arguments and spin:

    Obama threw it away in Denver

    At the end of September, Obama led his opponent in essentially all credible national and swing-state polling, Mitt Romney’s personal favorability was stuck underwater and the former Massachusetts governor was caught in a whirlpool of controversy around the “47 percent” tape.”

  256. I am hoping that all of us will be here Wednesday, regardless of what happens. Why? Because I still want to hear Admin’s opinions, and an interpretation by the rest of the wonderful posting here of what is going on.

    60 minutes last night said we basically have a none functioning Senate. Our Democracy is not functioning. We need to keep providing to any one that will listen what we see, what we hear, and how we feel about what is going on. One election will not cure this horrible situation. It will take many years and many elections.

    We need to return this country to its once great visions.

  257. I mean look at this and tell me, if its like that Romney wins.

    Republicans make gains in Rasmussen party ID survey in October. 39.1 Rep, 33.3 Dem, 27.5 Ind. If its close to that R wins.

  258. This is what I am seeing in Unicorn land….

    The predicate for Obama winning reelection on Tuesday is that he replicates the strong Dem turnout that swept him into office in 2008. That election saw a greater percentage of young, minority and Hispanic voters than previous elections. It also saw one of the lowest turnouts of GOP voters in the modern political era. Every state or national poll showing Obama in the lead is based on the assumption that Obama can craft a similar turnout. Signs are increasing, however, that this assumption is a fantasy.

    Politico talked to an Obama canvasser in Ohio, a state critical to Obama’s reelection:

    Can the Democrat put his finger on the difference in energy in 2012?

    “It’s hard to quantify, but there is significantly less enthusiasm,” said Roan. “I think there’s sort of grim determination on the part of some people, more than enthusiasm. … And it shows up in our volunteers. … We don’t have the number of young people volunteering like we did last time.”

  264. Whatever happens, it is going to be interesting to see what happens tomorrow night.
    —————————-
    If the election is closer than I think it will be then it may take some time to determine the winner. With an army of one thousand lawyers in the field supporting Obama, it is hard to imagine that there will not be manufactured protests. And whereas Gore was unwilling to put the nation though the trauma of a legal battle and therefore conceded Obama will never concede. He would sooner face an impeachment over Benghazi than concede the election. That is because, he believes what he told Hillary, I can make them believe anything I want them to believe. In the case of the dimocrats and big media, history has shown that is true. It is a combination of corruption and gullibility, which varies case to case.

One of the things in life that I absolutely detest, is complex methodologies, carried out the two places beyond the decimal point–like young Nate Obama Silvers fearless prediction that Obamas chance of winning is 75.64%, only to find that it is a landslide for Romney. In that case, they should build a statue of a fool to Silver:
