Did voter turnout really
decline this time?

You know how the overall voter turnout for this week's presidential election was disappointingly down so much over 2008? It's been all over online sites since Tuesday. Well, wait one. The friendly folks over at Public Opinion Strategies have crunched the numbers and come up with an interesting different view. It shows that while this year's total may be down, it's down nowhere near what all the democracy fretters are wringing their hands over. And they may actually end up very close.

We will never get to the bottom of it, but there were many irregularities in this election.

The problem is that we are comparing 2012 election night returns to 2008 final tally counts. The election is officially "certified" in December, at which time the real 100% numbers are in.

Wait until December, I'm betting the numbers will be real close to 2008.

I have lots of questions, but I doubt we'll get ANY answers.

For one...did the members of the military overseas get to vote ?

Some of those on the Internet who watch voter fraud, and believe me, it's the leftists too, if you read their sites, will cite cases of machines not just changing a vote from (R) to (D), but of "shedding" voters. If 10,000 vote on one machine, the machine might decide not to take some of the ballots with no indication why. Something is seriously wrong in America, and it starts at the local level. It's time for the majority Republican Governors to band together and force a common and rigid voting system and strategy before the 2014 tsunami.

Something is very wrong. If I were going to steal an election, I'd concentrate my efforts where they would be most effective. So look for discrepancies in Ohio, Wisconsin, and Florida. They wouldn't waste much time in Texas, for example, but all their moaning about the EC could well have been a diversion from their attempt to subvert it.

The numbers we need to know are of those who voted for president compared to those who voted for the other offices. Not everyone votes for all offices on the ballot.

My job has me moving throughout my city, in poor neighborhoods, rich neighborhoods and in between. Voter turnout was high in Republican districts with enthusiasm for making Obama a one term loser. In Poor neighborhoods, many people seemed unaware it was Election Day. Voter Turnout was large, but unenthusiastic and sluggish.

I firmly believe we were robbed.

You heard about the 'flipping' thing with the electronic polls? In PA, there was one Mainstream Media story about it, out of Harrisburg, where a report of an Obama vote flipped to Romney, before the machine was 'Re-calibrated'. I know for a fact there were dozens of reports of Romney/Republican votes flipping the other way - but no mention of those.

This Administration is bogus, fraudulent and traitorous, murderous... I think it's time to consider other options.

Yes, there is something seriously wrong when obama never crossed the 50% threshold in the polls. I believe that there has been massive fraud committed, and our country was stolen on election night. Not in my wildest dreams could I imagine our electorate choosing to be ruled by this kind of evil.

Any chance we could go back to using paper ballots? At least there were chads to inspect in 2000. Now, all we have is lines of computer code that can be instructed to go "poof" once election night is over.

I did a take on the percentages of the battleground states and the amount of flips needed to turn the tide. It would take less than three in 100 votes. Introducing a looping algorithm that would flip say, the eleventh, sixteenth and twenty-first then around again would be very difficult to verify, but would shift the tally.

I'm not sure how these machines work entirely, but I believe almost all are supplied by demn leaning companies. Also, I understand that some are controlled by a central server, but not sure this is true.

Many voters would not bother to check their paper if printed out and the chances of catching these flips would be miniscule and considered a fluke as in "flooke" not "fluhk."

It appears there were hundreds, if not thousands of flips caught. Every machine and it's software needs to be seized and scrutinized in depth. Votes won't be confirmed until December 18th. There's time, but is there the will?

Are we supposed to forget all of the huge crowds for Romney Ryan, even in PA? Virginia? Obama had to downsize how many venues because he xouldn't fill them?

We have how many GOP guvs do we have now? Can we cancel early voting? And appoint someone other than entrenched democrats to election boards?

At least in our state where I've worked at the polls, there is a paper tape that is produced by the voting machine and is used in counting the votes. It's not something that just goes ''poof'' with no trace of proof.

It is scary to think that the "d" community organizers have truly "voterized" our urban areas which seem to want to be the "in-crowd" who shows up to be "popular". They don't seem to think or care about the country because they all voted for Obama to be "prom-king" again.

The power of good ideas and clear thinking and personal liberty mean nothing in a corrupt system.

Here in Texas we don't take kindly to being cheated and lied to and told to shut up and take it.

Kindness and politeness and generosity are sometimes mistaken for weakness.

Bad mistake.

I am still in denial that Obama won, at least that he won fair and square. The crowds were for Romney not with Obama. The black voters were not energized this time so that vote should have been way down from 2008. Even for Republicans who weren't crazy about Mitt, they wanted Obama and his Obamacare gone. It is hard for me to accept the outcome unless there was massive fraud, more massive than the usual Demorat fraud, simply due to Obama's unpopularity.

I'm remembering 68% of the population wanted Obamacare gone. What happened?! Also, how many times did you hear Rush (or any other talker) say that NO president had ever been re-elected if their approval rating was below 50. How long since Zippy had even been at 50 - before the debates? This election stinks to high heaven. I'm impatiently awaiting the Republicans to go back to closed primaries, voting on election day and working to shut down motor voter and early voting. It will be a fight because you know all these are used by those liars and cheaters on the other side. Enough already!

I don't think in any poll he got more than 49+ percent nearing the election. Suddenly he gets 52 and 53 percent down the line of battleground states. States that Romney was ahead consistently toward election day like Virginia; 51%, Wisconsin; 53% went for hussein.

The Stinky win smells!

First, the good news: We are close enough to the end of the Obama presidency for his crowd to talk about a presidential library. Now, the bad news: Obama´s retirement is still 1,008 days distant. Plenty of time though to round up the dough to build it somewhere. Figure they need Solyndra-style money, at least $500 million. The last two presidents – Bill Clinton and George W. Bush -- built their legacy edifices totally with private money. [Snip] However, Obama supporters have a different take. They think taxpayers should put up $100 million in public money for Obama´s library.

Tensions continued to mount over Ukraine Tuesday as that nation´s military engaged rebel insurgents in the east and Russian leaders refused to recognize the Kiev leadership as legitimate, blaming it for the growing instability. An estimated 50,000 Russian troops remain massed on Ukraine´s borders as uniformed intimidation.

It was a tense standoff in rural Nevada with armed protesters closing I-15 for a while and facing off against even more heavily-armed federal agents. For now, that volatile Bundy Ranch confrontation has been defused. But it´s not over by any means. And we may well experience others that do not pause in non-violence. These are profound disputes illustrative of abiding suspicions among average Americans and their government headed by a man who promised to bring people together but didn´t.

Hate to break the news to you, but our old pal Archie Andrews is doomed. After 73 years of not looking a day over 17, the long-running all-American symbol of wholesomeness and teen goodness is set to die in July, according to Archie Comics. He´ll go out good, saving someone. Which is swell. But is this really necessary in a soiled age of cynicism, non-heroes and non-role models, lying leaders and downright criminals? It's already hard enough being a parent with all the unwholesome temptations at hand. Must we inevitably give up every enduring symbol of hope and good and fun for a one-month publicity splash?

GOP: Not just equal pay,

There was plenty of talk in Washington this week about equal pay. The thing is — it was just that: more talk. As a woman who worked at McDonald’s to get through college…. as the mom of two young daughters … and as the elected representative of thousands of hardworking women, I have always supported equal pay for equal work. And if a woman is being paid less than a man because of gender discrimination, that is both wrong and against the law. The protections provided to women and others in the Equal Pay Act must be enforced to make certain there is no pay disparity because of discrimination.

Hi, everybody. Earlier this week was Equal Pay Day. It marks the extra time the average woman has to work into a new year to earn what a man earned the year before. You see, the average woman who works full-time in America earns less than a man — even when she’s in the same profession and has the same education. That´s wrong. In 2014, it’s an embarrassment. Women deserve equal pay for equal work. This is an economic issue that affects all of us. Women make up about half our workforce. And more and more, they’re our families’ main breadwinners. So it’s good for everyone when women are paid fairly.

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'

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?
