Meant to thank you, buzzards, for all your hard work. The country thanks you.

Saw this yesterday on Nate's blog. It would appear Obama should have won Ohio 52.7/47.2 (by my reckoning), if not for the "provisional ballot" debacle.
Yep, there were plenty of precincts that had odd provisional ballot numbers. I was at one polling place on election day where one precinct had a 25 person line for PB's and the five other precincts had lines of one to three. I was a registered poll watcher but when I asked about that long line the poll judge made moves to throw me out.

My take is that the provisionals will be reviewed and many will end up being counted. Voter errors filling out the envelop will strike more than any voter suppression/roster purging. Of course, Ohio's SOS last minute ruling that poll workers couldn't help voters filling out the complicated envelop won't help.

You're welcome, but I was really working for Ruth Bader Ginsburg as mush as Obama, Sherrod and Betty Sutton. I don't think she could hold out another four years. The balance of the court was in jeopardy.

Not only the airwaves. Keep an eye on your ISP, because they are occasionally making moves to control content to their subscribers.

Here, educate yourself: St Lucie County Supervisor of Elections

Oh, and to save time: The Republican fall-back position is that voter turnout couldn't possibly have been 70%, because - well, they haven't gotten to the "because" bit, actually. At this point in time, it's mostly a statement of faith.

Reality and Republican thinking appear to have parted ways.

Thanks for that, myth busting that republican math and all.

Why do these rwnj's continue to push their lies? They really should be doing a little soul searching.

Gee, voting machine corporations, owned by republicans, programming with secret codes, unverifiable, off limits to anyone, answering to nobody - what could possibly be wrong about this?

3. Mitt got his butt kicked because 3 million conservative voters sat it out because of the Ron Paul effect. He didnt create a buzz for himself.
4. Mitt got his butt kicked because he didnt go negative early enough (early summer) and he was too fuzzy on his policies (which all presidential candidates are for the most part).

This election was his to win and Obumbums to lose.

Now the *******ians are having a good ole time but what they are talking about is the almost 9 million votes that Onumbnut's lost from 2008 or 13 percent.

So in effect Mitt was somwhat responsible for his own loss more than Obummers was responsible for his win.

Which worked out for me as I won some money betting on HusseinO even if I did vote for Mittens.
See you at the mid terms *******s. Gird your loins its gonna be a rocky two years.
Its been a while but didnt we finish with this type of juvenile conduct back in elementary school?
Obummers
Obungler
Obumbums
*******ians
Onumbnut's
HusseinO
*******s
Am i expected to believe this post is the product of a mature educated adult?

Sorry, Cremebrulee, but once again you are misinformed. There was no mural to take down because it was PAINTED onto the wall back 2009. Election workers were ordered to cover it up. If you know of another polling place where this occurred aside from the one referenced by Ohiogirl, please post a link. Thank you.

You are right, I forgot, it was indeed a painted mural on the wall, and they were ordered to cover it up...


Last night I heard on the news, Romney said, Obama won b/c he promised Amnesty to all the illegals...and yes, that is true, and I'm no Obama lover by any means, however, Romney doesn't thrill me either....well, what does he think Bush and Clinton did, and both sides before them, that is why they are here in droves, and why the government doesn't do anything about getting them out...

What erks me the most is, while Obama may have won by fraud, so did Bush on his second term....both sides are corrupt and no one seems to care...?
