The election is tomorrow. The entire buildup to this point has been somewhat surreal. The pollsters tell us that the election is too close to call, but that does not conform with reality.(snip)My eyes tell me things either that pollsters cannot see or that people are unwilling to tell them. Here are a few of them: • The country is stuck in a recession which Obama has made worse. After four years, he has no plan to remedy matters.
Thank you - I have been believing this for over a month now.
Here in OH, we only had to flip 3%. McCain voters all stay and vote for Romney - but Barry is losing some Jewish voters - losing some women, losing many white males, losing some young people, and more in his base are unenthused and will stay home while most Republicans that stayed home 4 yrs. ago will come out for Romney.
That has got to be way more than the 3% we needed.
Wisconsin is cautiously optimistic! We are on our knees praying our Republican voters come out in mass. We take nothing for granted. We don't vote for revenge, we vote for the love of our country and the beautiful freedom we exercise.
Anyone who is following the Ambassador and his staff's death should have no doubt for whom to cast your vote.
I agree. And I look forward to watching heads exploding on MSNBC. In fact, I intend to watch the entire election night on MSNBC rather than Fox specifically for the joy of seeing those loons go nutso. The Chris Matthews spittle-fest alone should be epic.
One has to give the Kneepad media the credit it is due. Without them, there is no way anyone in their right mind would think this will be a close election. Now the key is will we win the Senate. We need enough Rebublicans in the Senate to use budget reconciliation to overturn Obambicare.
Come on Mass, Indiana, Virginia, Florida and Missouri
I don’t know anything about anything, but I really do not believe there are enough people in this country that want 4 more years of this disaster to make it close. I do believe it will be a Romney landslide even with the massive voter fraud from the dems. But vote, and make sure.
I disagree with the author on one point: the electorate, ever since the first debate when they had a chance to see beyond the attack ads, have come around and are now voting for Romney, not just against Obama.
I wonder how many people who came out to vote for the first time ever in 2008 because they were "inspired" by Obama will sit home, disillusioned, and plan to never vote again.
Enjoy what should be a glorious evening for The United States of America on November 6th, but still keep in mind the words of the late Joseph Stalin......."The people who cast the votes don't decide an election, the people who count the votes do."
There is a flood of extremely negative advertising coming directly from the Zer0 campaign out here in California. Dark and demagogic. Misleading and frightening. Expensive. A lot of money to be spending in a "secure" Demo state.
I agree with the arguments in this article. Things he didn't mention are all the unusual elections in 2010, Brown in Kennedy's seat, Wisconsin standing up to organized civil service labour etc where the electorate has tried to stop Obama by proxy. This is the first time they can stop him directly. We will need a landslide because election day is only the start of the effort needed to boot Obama out of office.
Don't be complacent. VOTE!! Let's be sure the blow out is big and bold. Make sure the commies in the US (esp Chicago) and the old USSR, the EU ruling swine and the islamofacists know the USA is back, and we're exceptionally bad-ass!
For those of you worrying about the "close" election, here's a bit of advice for you:
1) STOP reading and watching the news (yes, even Lucianne),
2) Go to hillbuzz.org and read all the positive, uplifting, confident reports there, and
3) STOP spreading your fear among our ranks--all you're doing is helping the enemy (think of it as making donations to Bathhouse Barry cause you're not helping yourself; you're just demoralizing the rest of us)!!

No one who reads this board will miss the vote. Based on early news stories of voting irregularities', NAACP 'take-overs' of polling places and military ballot issues, I'm very worried about fraud. We may be gathering here in December waiting for a decision on the winner.
Intellectually I know Obama is done. The crowd sizes for Romney are growing. Mitt isn't just the anti-obama now. He's the future leader of the Western World. In spite of Axelrod and Plouffe's $900M campaign to paint Romney as a greedy pig, he's shown himself a man of high integrity, a big heart, and enormous competence.
Emotionally, I'm in fight and survive mode. The Eisenhower-led nation I grew up in, where trust in our leaders was automatic, love of country was unconditional, and optimism was easy as pie is now facing an enemy far worse than the Nazis and Imperial Japanese that threatened my parents. Tomorrow is the day when our country will chose liberty or tyranny and it is scarey.
Here is the pollsters' problem: Less than 10% of us answer the phone anymore. In our case, we have an intelligent home phone system that tells us who is calling and we do not pick up the phone unless we want to.
There is no way in which the 10% of late adopters of this cheap and effective technology can be representative of the rest of us. So the one thing we can be sure of is that the polls are going to turn out to be very wrong.
Dittos to #20's comments. We don't pick up our phone when we don't see the caller identified, or if it is a "blocked" or toll-free number.
FTA: "But don't get too cocky. Rasmussen, whom I think is the best pollster in the lot, has yet to provide definitive numbers."
I won't make any predictions. I'll believe Romney has won when I see it in the headlines of every newspaper. I still believe that 0bama could be reelected, because the Democrats and the unions will try anything to steal votes wherever they can. And believe me, there are still many people who think 0bama has done a good job. They got their "0bama mortgages" (like three of our neighbors), and there is no way they will break away from their messiah.
I have said this a month. He just outlines it so well. In 2008 the states were close. The independents and new young voters made the difference. Not happening this time. How could this election possibly be so close when every group for Obama has dropped by such percentages?
And I hope everyone will go have a Chick-Fil-A sandwich after they vote tomorrow.
Posts about phones not being answered are so true. Rush said conservatives don't answer the phone when it's pollsters. And he says there are 24 million evangelicals who no one is talking with or about.
I think I'll watch MSNBC tomorrow night too, just for the entertainment value.
The previews were Scott Walker in Mass. the 2010 congressional tsunami and the recall in Wisc. the polls and the media were just as wrong then as they are now. Continue to pray and vote if you haven't but this will not be close.
This has all the markings of the 1980 election. Then the media also had it too close to call. Reagan went on to be called the next president by 80 in the evening in a landslide even before they closed voting in the western states. It looks and feels that we have a redux of 1980.
In the '08 election a significant number of Republicans swallowed the "hope and change" snake oil and voted for 0bama. That didn't happen in '10 and won't happen this time. I would not be surprised to see a significant number of Democrats vote for Romney or just stay home.
PLEASE also to those who still think an Obama second term is what is needed for this country, need to be advised of an article on this site, about Obama signing a new Exec order, Setting up the "Civilian Corps", without Congressional approval or direction !!
This will be the second term agenda. The TAKEOVER of the USA and a setting up of the Dictator Obama !!
The poor, pathetic Democrats trying to defend Obamacare have adopted the talking point that there is "pent-up demand" for "affordable" (i.e., subsidized by other people) health care insurance. The citrizens of the Garden State have just flipped the bird on this argument. (snip) fifty thousand people signed up online for New Jersey´s gambling sites in the first week. That compares with 741 who signed up for Obamacare during all of October. Yes, the Obamacare website has been plagued with problems, but the disparity between the two programs is still eye-popping
Barry promised a zillion times on camera that Americans under ObamaCare would be able to keep their health care insurance if they liked it, that they would be able to keep the same doctors, and so on. Were these lies? (snip)Next November, Republican political ads from coast to coast should say something like this: "The leaders of the Democratic Party are doing the very best they can. That is the problem our nation faces today: that Democrat leaders are doing the best that they can. We cannot expect them to fix the problems they have created or the other problems
Oops! First it was ´if you like your insurance you can keep your insurance.´ Then it was ´if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor.´ Now, after the president´s spokes-prevaricators said that Barack Obama had never met his father´s half-brother Omar Onyango Obama, affectionately referred to by many as Uncle Omar, we come to find out that that´s another lie. Yet in a way it´s understandable that Barack Obama would want to place distance between himself and his colorful Kenyan family, some of whom have lived America illegally for 50 years, still mooch off of welfare, and in Omar
An entry titled "Forget About the Price Tag" has won the HHS video contest for promoting Obamacare. (snip)McDonald received the $2,000 grand prize and a $3,000 prize for having the top song. McDonald, a resident of Chicago, signed up for Cook County´s Medicaid program. She has type 1 diabetes. Did someone tell the state of IL that the $5,000 she won in the contest might make her inelgible for Medicaid? The huge irony is that she won by posting a video urging her fellow youth not to worry about the price tag, when she herself is getting her insurance paid for by
In his first term, Obama managed to get his paws on health care, banking, energy, student loans, the auto business, and more. Now he has his sights set on your 401(k). The left has had its eye on retirement savings for years, but so far takeover attempts have been rebuffed. (snip)Once it is established that mutual funds pose a risk to financial stability, government will likely proceed on its merry way, with thousands of pages of regulations bringing those funds, and the savings they manage, under the thumb of government. It is only a short step from regulation to appropriation,
In Michael Agar´s book entitled Language Shock: Understanding the Culture of Conversation, he asks "[h]ow do you speak and act a lie at the same time?" Agar maintains that there are three characteristics of an act that tell ... whether a lie occurred or not: I. The sentence is false; 2. The person knows it´s false; 3. The person intends to deceive. A lie isn´t just what´s in the discourse; it´s also what´s in the circumstances of the act of speaking, like the knowledge and intentions of the speaker. Furthermore, "the thing that most people would say makes a lie
Organizing for Action (OFA), which lives at the web address barackobama.com because it is an outgrowth of the Obama presidential campaigns, is shamelessly seeking to exploit the deaths of school children at the hands of a maniac in Newtown, CT. I am beyond words. How low can you go?
I have never been much of a conspiracy theorist. For me it was always Oswald by himself from the Texas School Book Depository and nothing in the intervening fifty years has disabused me of this notion. For the most part, I’m an Occam’s Razor kind of guy — the most obvious explanation is likely to be true. (Snip) To put it bluntly, Occam’s Razor has moved. Things that were once possibilities now seem almost certainties to me. Principal among those is that Obama’s academic records are perpetually unavailable for a reason — and that reason is most likely that they reveal
One of President Obama´s chief political assets has been his ability to excite young people like almost no politician in history. But the days of America´s youth fawning over the president are over. A new Harvard University Institute of Politics poll released Wednesday confirms what other surveys have shown in recent months: Millennials have soured on Obama so much this year that their opinion of him largely mirrors the American public´s. Even though Obama does not ever have to face another election, he should be worried about the findings for a couple of reasons, which we will dive into momentarily.
A stunning new study unveiled on Fox News´ Hannity finds that President Barack Obama’s White House calendar records just one face-to-face meeting between Obama and his Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Kathleen Sebelius in the more than three-and-a-half years leading up to the disastrous Obamacare launch. The startling statistic comes from a new Government Accountability Institute (GAI) analysis of Obama’s own official White House calendar, as well as the Politico presidential calendar, and raises new questions about Obama’s executive leadership and management throughout the implementation of his singular legislative achievement. More alarming still, the president’s schedule lists 277 private
[Video] President Obama on Wednesday declared that addressing income inequality would be the focus of “all” of the White House’s efforts “for the rest of my presidency.” In a sweeping address that touched on raising the minimum wage, investing in infrastructure and ending tax breaks for the wealthy, Obama warned that the American economy has become “profoundly unequal,” declaring economic mobility the “challenge of our time.” “The combined trends of increasing inequality and decreasing mobility pose a fundamental threat to the American dream, our way of life, and what we stand for around the globe,” he said in an hour-long
Just over two weeks ago, MSNBC host Martin Bashir delivered a harsh piece of commentary that culminated in the suggestion that someone should “s-h-i-t” in former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin‘s (R-AK) mouth. Bashir offered an abject apology on his next broadcast, but a chorus of critics continued to demand action against the host. After a reported “vacation” for the host earlier this week, Bashir announced, Wednesday afternoon, that MSNBC and Martin Bashir are parting ways. Here’s the statement from Martin Bashir, via email: After making an on-air apology, I asked for permission to take some additional time out around the Thanksgiving holiday. Upon
Speaker John Boehner said his party should support gay Republican congressional candidates and urged his colleagues to “be a little more sensitive” when running against women. “Some of our members just aren’t as sensitive as they ought to be,” Boehner said. When asked if he thinks his party should support gay candidates, Boehner simply said: “I do.”
Amid an array of “knock-out” attacks against a number of Jews in Brooklyn’s Crown Heights neighborhood, a city councilwoman pointed to the success of the Jewish community as triggering the aggression. Councilwoman-elect Laurie Cumbo emphasized that while she “admire[s] the Jewish community immensely” for its work ethic, black teens may see it differently. “While I personally regard this level of tenacity, I also recognize that for others, the accomplishments of the Jewish community triggers feelings of resentment, and a sense that Jewish success is not also their success,” Cumbo, who was recently elected, wrote in a letter.
