This race is over, but the conspiracy theories are about to begin. And, boy howdy, are things going to get ugly. To wit, Mitt Romney will defeat Barack Obama for the presidency on November 6, after which there will be hysterical blowback. The election result is quantifiable, with Romney consistently leading in national tracking polls, finding a level at or above 50 percent in many, and closing the necessary gaps in swing states and among demographic groups. Greater evidence can be found, however, in Obama’s sour demeanor and the conduct of his campaign. What a mess.
Here's a little prediction of one of the conspiracy sources: the total number of votes cast for president will be less, much less, than the number of people who voted. Many black voters will turn out to vote for their congressman and other down-ticket offices, but will not vote for president. Unable to bring themselves to vote for Mitt and be first-time Republican voters, they will nonetheless refuse to vote a second time for Obama, the charlatan who fleeced them and abandoned them. It's a simple explanation that the left will refuse to accept.
2, I'd like to think that you are right about the black voters feeling abandoned. Obviously those with their free cell phones don't feel that way, but let us hope that that ignorant cadre is in the minority.
Given there is a win and a potentially crime ridden lame duck suicide run by obozo it would be the perfect time for The Donald to offer the same 5 million dollars again to more whistleblowers in smaller payments! He'll pay to make public the insane things obozo will be doing in the last few months of his royal reign, and he'll be the kindly judge of what each horrifying act is worth. O's own insider staff jumping ship, will gladly go public on obozo dirt. Go Donald !
I'm with #4. I love the conspiracy theories. The drama queens on Facebook will be wild.
Remember the recount in Florida and Bush v. Gore? I love deflating liberal fantasies by reminding my friends that if Gore had carried his own state of Tennessee he would have won the election today be the Former President AlGore.
Rather risky to assume a Romney win at this point. Anything that lets people assume they don't have to crawl over broken glass to get to the voting booths on Tuesday will only help Obama. I sincerely doubt the MFM will be sitting on its corrupt hands between now and voting day, passively awaiting their own defeat. Any "unforeseen event" in the next 7 days must be viewed as a potential trap or trick by the MFM/Obama campaign. Anything.
Uh, the storm distorted the election! Uh, it was Sandy who stole victory away from me. Uh, gee, didn't that storm hit the east coast? Isn't that where Romney is from? He caused that storm! Uh, he's so rich he could make that happen. Uh, all those states that were hit by Sandy? Uh, they should be allowed to revote.
(Uh, tell me what else to say, Mr. Soros, sir. Now that I've got everyone's attention. What? Oh, right. Good one, sir.)
Uh, great workers of Solyndra, unite! Uh, before I leave office in a few weeks, uh, I'm gonna sent you one trillion dollars from the US taxpayers for more of those sun power panel things, or whatever it is you didn't make. Uh, you didn't make that!
This is the delicious part.. FTA "We often see leftist orthodoxy morph into popular convention. This is because, while there are some smart people on the left, it requires almost no thinking to be a liberal. Simply absorb the political sentiments you hear in almost any Hollywood film, or on most any television program or newscast and, presto, you’re in. Repeat these nostrums at school or work and you will be rewarded. Augmented by the emotional satisfaction of the left’s perpetual righteous indignation, this dynamic becomes self-fulfilling and very cozy."
I just hope the outcome is what they say.. I will sleep a little better next Wednesday.
Do not take anything for granted. Vote and work as if we are trailing in the polls. The left would love nothing more than to repress voter turnout. I will not rest easy until the votes are counted and Romney is declared the winner. I am optimistic but also a realist who doesn't trust anything the left says. My plan is to pray, vote and hope that reason and sanity prevail.
After the election, will there be an Office Of The President Defeated? Will Valerie Jarrett's title be adjusted to Special Assistant To The Lame Duck? Will her Secret Service detail be replaced by domestics at the ready with tissues and dust pans? How about Michelle? Will she and her entourage be under constant observation by agents trained in shoplift prevention?
FTA "Certainly, a resounding win will foreclose the Democrats’ propensity to steal close elections through after-the-fact chicanery (presented as Exhibit A: Al Franken is a senator) This is why we need to vote in HUGE numbers on Tues.
Hopefully we aren't jinxing ourselves. My crystal ball... I see numerous recounts and civil rights lawsuits (Holder ain't going down easy either). I see many Sharpton and Jackson joint news conferences. I see a dangerous lame duck Senate working with a lamer (and more dangerous) duck Obama. Whether there is civil unrest depends on Obama.
I hope Theo Caldwell is correct. However, my wife works in a building where an early voting office is located. Everyday day since they opened 3 weeks ago there was a line around the block of mostly black voters, all looked like Obama supporters.
Obama and his administration will use every trick in the book to hang on. Even if things look hopeful there needs to be a big landslide to get rid of this bitter clinger! Keep up the effort everyone, election day is just one more day in the battle to get Obama out of office!
At this late date I still don't know. I feel that Romney is going to win the election, but I can't shake the feeling that the Dims will pull something that could change the outcome of that which the majority will have voted. You know. Cheat. That's what they do. Especially in states that are close. As we all here know, these people will go to any lengths to win. And that includes any and all illegal tactics.
I know that some of the despair I feel at times is brought on by the junk that Dims are put out for the express reason to suppress the Republican vote. But, at least for me, it won't work. I've already voted!
I won't believe this election is over and Romney has won until Obama publicly concedes. And right now I feel like I did before the SCOTUS decision on health care. Remember how there was no way it could be held constitutional in a rational world? Well, in a rational world there is no way Obama could win, but clearly that's not where we are.
Re #39 Yes, everyone is a little uptight over Christie's embrace of Obama. I think putting politics aside should be expected to happen in the face of disaster. I remember all the hugs Dubya received from Dems right after the original 9/11........but the love soon evaporated.
So do we continue to fight the partisan press for President Romney? Who else can whip them into line but the people? Time for the people to stand and deliver still IMO.
Even with reporters like the dude at Buzzfeed lay in wait for a President Romney to make a gaffe or something they can spin into a gaffe, next president, Romney, is not media shy like GWB and he seems to not mind talking over them to the people. But don't expect him to demonize democrats like the abysmal partisan president we now endure.
Never underestimate the commies ability to "fix" things the way they need them. I will be apprehensive until the results come in November 6th/7th. Nothing is settled until then.
And even then, if the results are good, the task of ridding the WH of the anointed one will be like pulling teeth (no anesthetic, of course). A herculean chore followed by nearly a million other chores to rectify the damage done to our beloved country.
Interesting, I received an email today saying that the question is not The pResident having a 2nd term, but a third because you know sitting Presidents never loose their 2nd elections.... Wondered if that was to cause the effect that the West coast experiences every election with final results from half the nation posted hours before our polls close. Doesn't change my mind though.
Just like all of those people who voted for Obama the last time and wanted to be a part of something big and momentous I will crawl over broken glass to vote for Romney even if he is up 20% in Monday's polls. I too want to be part of something monumental - voting this socialist out of office.
For the sake of the future of our nation, we had all better hope he is right about his prediction of who will win and who will lose this election. There has never been a more important decision for the American people in our entire national history!
Communist like agitation, redistribution, and the big one..... stealth. Obozo's union style organizations that have had so many names, those are the ones to worry about, none of THEM have been polled. One above reminded us to scratch our way to the polls and vote....it ain't a sure thing til all the cheating and electronic fraud has been exposed. LBJ and Slick Willie (as great a liar he IS) both look like light weights compared to our present raging, mad, vindictive un unresolved child.
If it really does end with a Romney win (Let it be, Lord...let it be!), where will AFI take the obamas on their final tax-payer-financed luxury jaunt? They've been everywhere...oh...except the mideast. Perhaps they could visit our troops in the "sandbox." Nah...that's not cushy, not plush enough for the o's.
Romney will win. It is God's will. This Nation is at a frightening crossroads. This election is in the hands of God, and he expects US to work through Him. Hold firm in your Faith; vote, and encourage others to vote for Mitt. I am not mistaken that those open to such things can see, and sense, that Mitt Romney is radiating a light of Protection.
I watched MSNBC yesterday and Tingles was practically sobbing into his morning Starbucks toddy. He stated something to the effect that Obama can win now "ONLY if HE (BHO)believes and HOPES (his emphases) he can win." Tingles has the inside dope, no doubt. Otherwise he would have had that insipid smirk on his face. Ditto the android pawning herself off as a lesbian.
Many of the above posters have it right....we must watch for any "foolishness" at the polls. Document anything that looks out of line. Take pictures of all those involved. If they object to having their pictures taken, tell 'em you're doing a documentary on fair elections. We've come too far to let these ruffians steal the election from us. We must pay attention and be prepared. Load mags and clips, clean bores and lock and load!! We are saving our nation!!!
Crawl, run, walk on water or whatever it takes to get to the poles and vote for Romney because we need a BIG majority so Obama can't say that the votes are not counted right. Please people, lets throw him out hard, very hard.
We don't have to worry, as #54, about "the Republican Party" counting the votes. Turns out - we _are_ the party and we _can_ be involved.
I just signed up to be a poll watcher. I am looking forward to the adventure and will report back anything I see here in the blue state of MA. They are sending me not to a poll in my nice suburban town with all its Scott Brown signs, but to nearby Lowell which is one of the blue spots.
No. 30 unfortunately has it right, if Obama loses there will be riots in the streets and not just in the northern and west coast cities either. Everyone has been buying gold as a hedge against a larger depression which will surely come in O's second term. I am not buying gold but ammunition because if he wins again that ammunition will be just as valuable as gold. Not to mention the fact you will need it for personal protection. We are in a no win situation no matter how this election goes.
Well I hope this will be over soon. I'm tired of being lied to, I'm tired of a government with no honor - and no shame, and I'm tired of my wife feeling like she has to hurl every time she sees Obama on the tube!
WASHINGTON — For months, the Obama administration has heralded the low premiums of medical insurance policies on sale in the insurance exchanges created by the new health law. But as consumers dig into the details, they are finding that the deductibles and other out-of-pocket costs are often much higher than what is typical in employer-sponsored health plans. Until now, it was almost impossible for people using the federal health care website to see the deductible amounts, which consumers pay before coverage kicks in. But federal officials finally relented last week and added a “window shopping” feature that displays data on
Speaking to a forum on Middle East policy on Saturday, President Obama showed how cavalierly he regards his nuclear deal with Iran. Obama said, “We have to be vigilant about maintaining our security postures, not be naive about the dangers that an Iranian regime poses, fight them wherever they’re engaging in terrorism or actions that are hostile to us or our allies.” “But,” he added, “we have to not constantly assume that it’s not possible for Iran, like any country, to change over time. It may not be likely. If you asked me what is the likelihood that we’re able to
The National Security Agency isn´t the only government entity secretly collecting data from people´s cellphones. Local police are increasingly scooping it up, too. Armed with new technologies, including mobile devices that tap into cellphone data in real time, dozens of local and state police agencies are capturing information about thousands of cellphone users at a time, whether they are targets of an investigation or not, according to public records obtained by USA TODAY and Gannett newspapers and TV stations. The records, from more than 125 police agencies in 33 states, reveal: • About one in four law-enforcement agencies have used a tactic known
Ed Gillespie, a former top aide to President George W. Bush who chaired both the Republican National Committee and Virginia GOP, said he is considering a bid against Democratic Sen. Mark Warner, automatically putting Virginia in play and giving the Republicans their best chance to take back control of the Senate. Gillespie was in Hot Springs, Va., over the weekend talking with state GOP officials who were beginning the planning for the next party convention, where Warner´s opponent will be selected. Two other candidates with ties to the Tea Party are also planning to run. Party officials, seeing that no major Republican
Democrats are happy, no doubt, to have the overwhelming support of young, “low information” voters. And, presumably, they have little desire to see this constituency become better informed as a general matter. But relying on the votes of young, low information voters is one thing; relying on their behavior is another. And the Democrats are relying on their behavior. Obamacare, the signature accomplishment of the Democratic Party, depends on young, healthy individuals to buy health insurance. Without their widespread participation in the online insurance exchanges as a means of subsidizing the cost of treating older, sicker Americans, insurance premiums will sky-rocket, thereby
The U.S. isn´t called "America the Beautiful" for nothing. Each year, millions of tourists come from home and abroad to see the country´s majestic landscape and iconic sites, from the Grand Canyon to the Statue of Liberty. But there are also cool, quirky attractions, like Vermont´s Ben & Jerry´s Factory and Tennessee´s Graceland, the former home of Rock and Roll King Elvis Presley. From California to New York and everywhere in between, the country is chock-full of incredible attractions that keep luring in visitors. Here are the best tourist attractions in every state.
Would a free society be a crime-free society? We have good reason to anticipate it. Don’t accuse me of utopianism. I don’t foresee a future of new human beings who consistently respect the rights of others. Rather, I’m drawing attention to the distinction between crime and tort — between offenses against the state (or society) and offenses against individual persons or their justly held property. We’re so used to this distinction, and the priority of the criminal law over tort law, that most of us don’t realize that things used to be different. At one time, an “offense” that was
The question all week long was this: Who are you going to believe, an illegal alien or the president of the United States of America? Obviously, if it’s a president who once went by an alias, Barry Soetoro, you go with Uncle Omar, 100 percent, no questions asked. And so it was that the White House finally admitted to another, uh, misstatement — despite previous denials, Barack/Barry did sleep on his beloved Uncle Omar’s couch in Cambridge when he first moved here to attend Harvard Law School (speaking of which, we’re still waiting to see the president’s grades and his LSAT scores). But the
How do you get your arms around the catastrophe known as Obamacare? Is it even possible? At this point, I’m not sure it is. The list of individual disasters which threaten to ruin one-sixth of the U.S. economy and what has been, up until now, the best healthcare system in the world is exhaustive, and exhausting. The examples I will identify here barely scratch the surface. First but by no means foremost, we have the supposedly new and improved HealthCare.gov. Except it’s not, even the visible part. Stories still abound of people still failing to get in or to get through the enrollment
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has announced a new five-year strategic plan to improve safety for elderly drivers and passengers. Although they are statistically among the safest on the road, the number of older drivers is increasing dramatically — and with it, that group´s numbers of injuries and deaths. Since 2003, the population of older adults, defined as age 65 and older, has increased by 20% and the number of licensed older drivers increased by 21% to 35 million in 2012, according to NHTSA. Last year, NHTSA reported that 5,560 people older than 65 died and 214,000 were injured
A veteran Washington adviser who has worked for four Presidents on both sides of the political aisle said that the stunning Government Accountability Report report that found President Barack Obama has not had a one-on-one meeting with Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius since the passage of Obamacare over three years ago is an indictment of the entire White House operation and shows that the Obama administration has bordered on "malfeasance." "I have no doubt the White House is right, that Secretary Sebelius was in several group meetings with the president about health care," Gergen caveated, "but the whole
President Barack Obama’s Facebook page on Saturday posted a message honoring the dead from Pearl Harbor—accompanied by a picture of Obama descending the stairs next to the Pearl Harbor Memorial. The picture barely fits the name of the Arizona Memorial so it can frame Obama in the foreground. The post´s statement reads: Today, with solemn pride and reverence, let us remember those who fought and died at Pearl Harbor, acknowledge everyone who carried their legacy forward, and reaffirm our commitment to upholding the ideals for which they served. President Obama The Obama Administration´s current shipbuilding plan shrinks the size of
Barack Obama did not tell the whole story this autumn when he tried to make the case that Bashar al-Assad was responsible for the chemical weapons attack near Damascus on 21 August. In some instances, he omitted important intelligence, and in others he presented assumptions as facts. Most significant, he failed to acknowledge something known to the US intelligence community: that the Syrian army is not the only party in the country’s civil war with access to sarin, the nerve agent that a UN study concluded – without assessing responsibility – had been used in the rocket attack. In the months before the attack,
Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel, the hapless, goalpost-shifting so-called "architect" of Obamacare, told Fox News´ Chris Wallace on Fox News Sunday that President Barack Obama´s promise "if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor" was absolutely true--with one important caveat: if you like your doctor, "you can pay for it." Wallace grilled Dr. Emanuel, challenging his false claims that California´s enrollment was keeping pace with the percentage of the young population necessary to keep the system afloat, and pointing out that the president´s promise on doctors would collapse once people lost their insurance or their
