Election prediction: Electoral votes will
add up to Barack Obama victory

Chicago Sun-Times, by Richard Roeper

Original Article

Posted By:brianod1, 11/5/2012 8:38:13 AM

Somewhere around the time President Barack Obama and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie were standing in unison, while members of Team Romney reportedly were purchasing items to be given away at a fund-raiser for storm victims, it hit me. Somewhere around the time Donald Trump was bleating about the president missing the deadline and saying charities would suffer because of it — as if the money wasn’t Trump’s to do with what he pleases — it hit me.

Comments:
This reminds of the NY Times scribe who didn't know a soul that voted for Richard Nixon in 1972.

I don't know. The "early" voting today in Columbus Ohio is a line around the building of minorities and people from the poorer neighborhoods. Last week, you could walk in and early vote in under 10 minutes. I believe that there's a united plan to overwhelm these early voting centers at the last minute, which will allow more questionable votes to be cast. This is why the Republican Party tried to cut off early voting to reasonable few days before the election. Want to see voter suppression (my vote!) on display today? Go to an early voting center in urban Ohio. I expect all those in line will be bused back downtown in time for the Obama rally, I mean Springsteen Jay-C concert, this afternoon. No doubt with a box lunch on the bus.

On his website, Mr. Roeper says he is a 'medium-left liberal.'
Any bias here? You betcha!

Are the Illinois EVs in obama's or Romney's calculations? And is the Chicago Sun-Times even relevant today?

Better listen to #2. It's the same in Atlanta. Busing the blacks to the early polls, giving them money and then back to vote on Tuesday. This is where the stimulus money went. SEIU spending it as fast as they can to insure reelection of the Won.
And the press helping all they can.

One of the things I despise the leftists for is destroying our faith in the electoral process. Remember Gingsburg before the SCOTUS decision was announced on Obamacare? I just feel sick that they know they are going to win because they've already counted the votes.

Buck up people! This artcile - as well as many more to come today are meant to demoralize you. Do not let the fear mongers get in your head. Do what you can where you are, and hold steady.

You will see an onslaught of articles like this. They have moved off the "must win Ohio" meme to the "will win the electoral college" chant.

Thank you, #13

For those of you worrying about the "close" election and vote fraud, 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)!!

#2, take heart. Columbus is in Franklin County - with a black mayor. There are 87 OTHER counties in Ohio to be counted. There are more Republicans registered this time around than in 2008 and less Democrats registered.

#13, #14, Yes. Mitt Romney is a smart man with a smart team. Look what he made of the debates, that were as usual formulated as an ambush of the GOP but look what he did. And he surprised everybody at least twice in a major way - the first and the last debates. He knew what was coming and he thought of a strategy around it. Pray for the man and give thanks.

Remember in 1948 it was a leading Chicago newspaper which headlined, "Dewey Beats Truman." If Obama were to win it would show we have degenerated into another Zimbabwe or Russia concerning how the media and elections are fraudulently handled. It will be then that the 1st and 2nd amendments will be thoroughly tested.

It doesn't surprise me that someone who accepts polls at face value believes this. But it does amaze me how many people fall into that category given all the noise that's been made about the flaws in state polls.

Not a convincing article - he gives most of the swing states to Obama but never give any evidence or justification to why he thinks they will go that way. When my state of Virginia, along with Ohio, Wisconsin, and Colorado all go to Romney, I sure he won't admit he was wrong, he'll blame stupid voters or fraud or something silly like that.

A search of all islands in the Andaman and Nicobar archipelago has drawn a naught, so far as the missing Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 is concerned, officials of the Andaman and Nicobar Command (ANC) confirmed on Saturday evening. Two Indian Navy ships, along with those from other nations, are continuing their search at the location pointed out by Malaysian authorities but nothing has been spotted on the water. Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 disappeared on March 8, 2014 on the way to Beijing from Kuala Lumpur.

Former Mayor Richard M. Daley says he doesn’t remember much about the planning of Millennium Park, his wildly over-budget project that has become one of Chicago’s civic treasures. The sprawling downtown park, with its gleaming stainless-steel sculpture known as “The Bean,” is seen as one of his crowning achievements. Daley, though, shrugs it off. N

Battling gang violence has been one of Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s top priorities. But one of Emanuel’s top appointees, CTA Chairman Terry Peterson, appears to have taken a different tack in the mid-1990s: Lobbying for the early release of the imprisoned leader of the Gangster Disciples — one of the largest and deadliest street gangs in Chicago, the Better Government Association has learned.

As if the city doesn´t have enough problems with crime, budget deficits, and school cuts and closings, Mayor Emanuel has decided to barrel headfirst into the South Loop real estate market—with at least $55 million of your property tax funds. The key moment came at the July 24 City Council meeting, when he hammered through an ordinance giving the city eminent domain authority to buy property at Indiana and Cermak. He plans to have a hotel built there. A couple days later, the Metropolitan Pier and Exposition Authority—the city-state agency that oversees Navy Pier and McCormick Place

Amid a spate of incursions by China in Ladakh, its troops are also resorting to tactics like preventing Indian Army from patrolling posts in this sector along the border which was well within India´s territory. In what is being described as an aggressive approach by China, the tactics have come to the fore in the wake of yet another incident last week when Indian troops launched its patrol "Tiranga" from Trade Junction area in north of Ladakh for two posts located 14 km up in the higher reaches along the line of actual control (LAC).

Using anti-science exuberance, for the last few days, the media have pom-pommed someone´s ethereal projection that the economy had created 200,000 or so jobs in July. The fact that our media would consider 200,000 jobs (which hardly keeps up with population growth) worthy of pom-poms is grotesque enough. Even more appalling is spinning manufactured positive news-cycles for President Obama based on proven nonsense like the ADP´s jobs projections.

After presenting at the Academy Awards this year, Kim Novak didn’t want to leave her house. The Hitchcock screen siren, 81, was too humiliated to venture from her home near the Rogue River in Oregon. She read the cruel posts and Internet snark about her appearance, and it was just too much. “It got to me like it gets kids and teenagers,” she told the Associated Press. The “Vertigo” actress, considered one of the great beauties in her day, posted a note on her Facebook wall Thursday, acknowledging that she’d gotten fat injections in her face and addressing her halted

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances.

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?
