Anyone hear about Romney's team having a computer program they created specifically for election day to help get out the vote on the ground?

They never tested it and on election day...it crashed. Thousands of volunteers were waiting for instructions on where to knock on doors or find out what counties had low turn out and they never got the info.

You and yours were just given an object lesson on the dangers of picking your own reality, and you still refuse to leave the comfort of your alternate universe. It is downright fascinating to watch.

The real Republican winners are those who found a way to get at Romney's campaign and Super PAC funds. His is the face that will launch a thousand yachts.

You won't be able to prove who committed voter fraud, or for whom the fraudulent votes were cast, but you'll be able to prove voter fraud. Since you believe it happened, prove it.
What Mr. Stevens says about the dead people on voting roles not being removed has been proved in some precincts around Columbus but it was about 4 years ago and wholly buried by those who control our government these days. The same kind of coverup we are watching with the Benghazi Triangle.

Dear roy:

The Ohio state government is firmly in the hands of the GOP.

For now.

Actually astounding how a demographic can be given such an obvious lesson in the errors of their ways and learn absolutely nothing from it, just continue on their way of hating everything blaming every one else for their failure continuing without so much as a misstep in their delusional alternative knowledge way of thinking,even those Republicans who do see the problems are usually vilified by the term Rhino..

So what?

You asserted that there are dead people voting.

Not that there are dead people on the voting rolls. There will always be dead people on the voting rolls. There will be people who moved and who did not notify the county clerk to be removed from the voting rolls. The voting rolls are not and never will be perfect. However, that doesn't mean that dead people are voting. Nor does it mean that live people are voting in their stead. Since you think it's an issue, since the Republican Party thinks it's an issue, simply request the lists of those who DID vote, and see if there are any deceased parties on the list. It's time-consuming but doable.

Volunteers were told it was an APP when it was actually a "web app". Volunteers wasted hours hunting for an app in Itunes or Google market. When they finally discovered it was a web app, many could NOT get to it with their phone becuz it was a secured site, it's address was an https but as they typed in the address their phone auto completed the address without the S. Mittens' techs failed to create a simple redirect from a "WWW.http" address to a "WWW.https" address. Without that simple redirect thousands of mittens "red team" end up looking at blank screens. Those that did make it thru couldn't log in becuz of password issues. I talked with one GOP guy working an old fashion paper strike list becuz he could get the app to work.

Of course, none that mattered becuz the whole thing crashed at 4pm. They failed to stress test the system. Obama's OFA, they ran four dry runs weeks before and continued testing the three days before election day.
