St. Petersburg, Fla. — Four days after the election, President Barack Obama can finally claim victory in Florida. The state finished counting its votes Saturday. Obama was declared the, giving him a 332 to 206 final margin in the Electoral College.Florida officials said Obama had 50 percent of the vote to Romney´s 49.1 percent, a margin of about 74,000 votes. The win gave Obama victories in eight of nine critical swing states, losing only North Carolina. In addition to Florida, he won Ohio, Iowa, New Hampshire, Wisconsin, Virginia, Colorado and Nevada.
The democrats were way too calm before and during the election. I do believe the fix was in with millions of fraudulent votes, in every swing state, well before the election. Some precincts in Philly showed 99% voted for Obama, with 100% turn out. Since when does any precinct get that high of a turnout without fraud? Add in what is happening now with Alan West...obviously voter fraud and they are not even trying to hide it...sigh. I don´t know that conservatives can ever win another election at this rate. They´ve figured out how to perfect fraud :-(
I maintain that if the win had been big enough, they couldn´t have cheated their way to a win. And God help us, but they may not have needed to anyway. I am at a loss for words to explain my utter sadness over the loss of this country. Because no matter what happens now, I don´t see any way that the US is finished. Another thing the election does is seal the US position of being against Israel. God is not happy. I am just sick. But it is what it is. I shall plan accordingly, trusting the Lord to give me wisdom and to take care of my family wherever He takes us. :heavysigh:
Fine. No more trips to Florida for me. No Disney. Hope they enjoy the loss of tourist revenue when the price of gas goes up. When it comes to a choice of food and utilities at home, people will choose necessities over a trip to Disney or the beach.
#10 - Obama´s end game is only the destruction of Israel. Nothing else motivates him. Nothing. He could care less about the US economy or our healthcare. Our economic demise is only his means to his determined end of demolishing our military. Obama´s must make our military a paper tiger. This will permit him to accomplish the destruction of Israel. This is why he has been toppling middle east dictators. He wants to establish the caliphate which can work as one to destroy Israel.
Stories like the ones coming out of Philadelphia make one wonder how the media can possibly be this openly deceitful. They report 99% voter turnout for Zero as if is demonstrates and effective "get out the vote" effort instead of the obvious fact that those numbers are absolute, concrete evidence of voter fraud.
The trick is the early voting process. The democrats can count those early votes, and they know how hard they have to push their constituents to vote, even several times if necessary. The dirty secret of hanging chads in 2000, in florida, was that the only way a hanging chad could have existed was when the fraudsters, trying to manufacture fraudulent votes as efficiently as possible, jammed extra cards into those card holders, and when they pushed the pin through, the bottom most card wound up with a faint mark or a hanging chad. And they found one of those machines in the trunk of an election worker, remember?
I agree. Romney should have immediately called for a national recount and impounding the voting machines. The Dems were way too smug all Summer long and running into the election. Additionally, the MSM kept putting up bogus poll numbers that were surprising close to the final outcome. This whole election stinks......
I believe the fix was in, too. I am heartsick and pretty much inconsolable. I am severing ties with every liberal dem that I know, and my neighborhood is full of them. I´ve also blocked phone and e-mail access to a family member who ran a canvassing office for obama in colorado.
I think it´s time to separate. Put all the blues in the north east and west coast then fence them off and mine the fence. See how long they last. Illinois might have to be "cleansed" along with Detroit-Flint-Saginaw, Cleveland and Columbus.
You will never convince me the won is the winner. What an election. 2 states legalized marajuana, one state authorized the taxpayer to pay for sex changes, one person gets elected who hide for 6 months, one person gets elected who was just released from jail... days after the election it was revealed Iran shot our drone on Nov 1st, Patraus is having an affair for years, but news is released after the election... the unions spent 1/2 billion $$$ on the election... abccbsnbccnn WP NY Times gave the won no negative coverage, they should be listed as donors.
I know it´s cold comfort my friends, but history shows us that things have a way of turning on liars and cheats. He now has to govern an electorate that did not elect him. Americans are not like other people around the world. Even the majority of our illegal immigrants are more inspired by the freedom this country offers than their friend/family left behind. I think we will be a force to reckon with. Does he have the stones? Does the press really have his back now that he has won? Oh, and I just saw my first Hillary bumper sticker. It´s already begun folks and she is not to be trusted by Obama either. He may encounter another hurricane Sandy before his term is up.
#21 Absoultely Agree! The past 4 years I have notated the comments on blogs and they were all trending against Zero the closer we got to the election. Newspapers were endorsing Romney, high-profile people were dumping on Zero, polls showed Americans think the country was moving in wrong direction, polls showing Americans hate Obamacare, etc.
In Michigan, we had ballot proposals regarding collective bargaining issues and they were all defeated. The trending over the last few years seemed to be getting back to our conservative roots - people going against the Unions, supporting pro-life businesses, making hard work a positive thing...and in the end he Wins??!
And I don´t hear one peep about any possible cheating even though the Black Panthers were out again, thugs were physically removing GOP monitors from polling stations, voting machines were giving Obama Romney votes, etc, etc. I guess the new meme in the country is cheat as much as you can in any aspect of life but perfect it so as not to get caught.
1. Republican vote total down 10 million from 2008? Oh? After the Chik-fil-A turnouts? 2. Absurd Democrat "turnout" figures demand to be investigated. However.... 3. The crimes involved in handling the military votes alone demand an outraged scorched-earth investigation and prosecutions. 4. #20, #22: please take a close look at how little the Dems actually won before donating half of what we built to them. The Patriot Post ran a map [Congressional districts?] showing a sprinkling of Leftist-won places scattered around. 5. Last, and maybe most importantly -- snap out of it, people. Yeah, it stinks. Yeah, the probability of criminal vote fraud is likely 100%. Yeah, it means all kinds of problems and trouble. But if all that adds up to for you is concluding "America is lost," and you´ve thrown up your hands, surrendering preemptively, saying America isn´t worth fighting for [yes, that´s what you´re saying], well, thank you for playing, and we have a nice parting gift for you. But don´t dawdle, ´K? Some of us love America, this magnificent achievement of humanity, and love our families. We´re getting to work. Now. See ya.

#26 has factual information. I read a long detailed investigative piece in WA Times three months ago about SOS, Spain, etc. This is not tinfoil hat stuff. Romney never had a chance. I realize that now. The voter fraud machine, ACORN by another name(s) and complicit Republicans (by their silence and cowardice) are to blame.
Someday, many years from now, after the citizens win freedom from the Marxist government in the second Revolution, historians will find conclusive proof that the Democrat party had rigged almost all of the electronic voting machines with faulty software code.
Of course, that is all fantasy, we all know this has been and always will be the most transparent ethical administration in history.
I´m sure many of these Florida districts had turnouts that exceeded the number of registered voters. They did the same thing in 2000 to George W. Bush. The cheaters stole it.
It would have done no good for Romney to pull what Al Gore did. Too many states to contend with and the media would have eaten his lunch and all of us Republicans/conservatives. How dare we dispute Obama´s "win."
And, news for #25, not even a saint/conservative could have won, so stop blaming Romney. He would have made a wonderful president.
Agree completely with #9 (and a lot of others), disagree very much with #10´s first statement. Was once my thinking too -- that if Romney won by a big enough margin -- ´´...if it´s not close they can´t cheat´´. It´s obvious now that´s no longer enough. An honest majority could not protect us because there was could be no margin large enough. The Dems carefully lined up well before Tuesday what looks to be a bottomless well of votes from which to draw. 99% in this precinct? Really? 100% in that one? Really? Welcome home, Saddam Hussein. Let´s party like it´s 2002.
Cliched, unprovable conspiracy theories usually just make me tired and frustrated, but... This happened. Call it a bloodless coup. It is what it is. Of all the stories that should not be allowed to die, this is the one.
Meanwhile the Must Reads are buzzing with stories on General Petraeus´ girlfriend. Unless she´s the direct line to the take-down of Obama &crew over Benghazi, they´re a waste of time. He will be subpoenaed, if necessary, hopefully not to talk about his love life.
I keep thinking of the screeching woman in the "Obamaphone" video, and realize that Obama won (stole?) the election with votes of multitudes of welfare thieves just like her, with her mentality or lower.
It makes me sick to my stomach. If I were a DemocRAT, I wouldn´t feel so smug about Obama´s "victory". In fact, I´d be embarrassed about it. But that´s the difference between the two parties...DemocRATS don´t feel any shame~~It´s all about winning.
How is ´´Liberal New Yorkers moving to Florida´´ a factor in precincts in Colorado, Pennsylvania, etc., reporting by large numbers, more votes than voters even registered in those areas? Precincts voting 99% and 100% for Obama only?
#45, a good friend of mine since high school called me up two years ago, and started picking on me for being a conservative. Out of nowhere, we usually did not talk politics. After I was polite but held my ground, he said he was "tired of trying to convince me" and hung up the phone, never heard from him after. Then just a few months ago I ran into him at Home Depot...he was back into drugs (er..."recovery") and looked 20 years older than me. We said hi and I was on my way.
I´m with #24, 39 & 43. Nothing adds up- he WAS ahead. All the polls were biased towards Obama and he was behind and yet Obama won? Handily? With proven voter fraud in OH, CO, PA, and FL why isn´t Romney NOW demanding a match up between votes and people who actually signed up!? He just rolled over. Haven´t heard a peep from him. This is incredibly demoralizing. If I didn´t believe God was in charge I´d be terrified. Keep getting this out there & keep praying.
Amazing mass psychology at work. Just tell the biggest lie with enough force and somehow it becomes the reality. When voting machines are caught doing the obvious manipulation for BHO, it is simply reported as a ´glitch.´ Kind of like the mechanical machines that came out of Philly with votes already cast for Democrats.
The obvious question besides how stupid and gutless are Republicans, who had a warning about exactly this kind of theft, TWELVE years ago with Gore, is this. Are we to simply accept the contradiction of a national voting public who was fed up with BHO´s fumbling in 2010 and gave him a record number of Tea Party type elected officials at all levels, now that same national voter base reversed direction and elects the master of the disaster and his helpers, AFTER AN EVEN WORSE TWO YEARS THAN 2008-2010?????
After a rough fall spent trying to recover from the botched rollout of healthcare.gov, President Obama is no doubt looking forward to his annual year-end holiday escape to Hawaii. The Senate on Thursday approved the first budget deal in years that didn´t threaten to keep lawmakers working into Christmas week, leaving Obama, his family and a coterie of close friends free to depart for a 17-day trip to Hawaii as scheduled Friday evening. The vacation will cost taxpayers an estimated $4 million and fill the sleepy town of Kailua and its miles of beautiful beaches with street barricades and security
[Video] A Facebook page dedicated to defense of Phil Robertson of “Duck Dynasty” has received well over 400,000 likes since it was launched just 14 hours ago. The page was created late on Wednesday evening, after news broke that A&E was suspending Robertson over his comments on homosexuality. Within 10 minutes, the “Boycott A&E Until Phil Robertson Is Put Back on Duck Dynasty” page had 100 likes; in 30 minutes, the page had 1,200 likes. It grew exponentially from there; in three and a half hours, the page had 162,000 likes. The page states: “This page is to show support
Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal has released a statement in response to A&E´s decision to indefinitely suspend Duck Dynasty patriarch Phil Robertson for religious comments he made about homosexuality in GQ Magazine. The Robertson family lives in Monroe, Louisiana. “Phil Robertson and his family are great citizens of the State of Louisiana. The politically correct crowd is tolerant of all viewpoints, except those they disagree with. I don’t agree with quite a bit of stuff I read in magazine interviews or see on TV," Jindal said. In fact, come to think of it, I find a good bit of it offensive.
Three people, including a 74-year-old man, were shot to death within three hours on the South and Southwest sides in Chicago overnight, according to authorities. Adding to the toll are two teens who died Wednesday after being shot earlier in the week. The 74-year-old man was found dead inside a car around 4:45 a.m. today. He suffered several gunshot wounds and died at the scene in the 7000 block of South East End Avenue, police said. Not long afterward, another man, 41, was found dead in a car about three blocks north, in the 6700 block of South East End
[Video] TRENTON — The Democratic National Committee released a video Wednesday accusing Gov. Chris Christie of dodging questions about the George Washington Bridge controversy. Meanwhile, lawyers for two officials who resigned amid the scandal have asked for more time to respond to subpoenas from a state Assembly panel investigating the matter, according to e-mails obtained by The Star-Ledger. A spokesman for the Port Authority declined to comment on who would foot the bill for outside counsel hired by the two former executives. (Snip) And New Jersey´s two U.S. Senators — Robert Menendez and Cory Booker — have remained silent on
The man who sparked an international furor by offering bogus sign language interpretation at a major memorial service for late South African President Nelson Mandela has reportedly been admitted to a psychiatric hospital for treatment. The Star newspaper reported that Thamsanqa Jantjie was admitted to the Sterkfontein Psychiatric Hospital on Tuesday after being taken for a check-up by his wife, Siziwe. The paper reported that doctors suggested that Thamsanqa be admitted immediately. "The past few days have been hard. We have been supportive because he might have had a breakdown," Siziwe said. Thamsanqa Jantjie gained international infamy overnight when he
Is this man simply expressing his beliefs or spewing bigotry?Either way, Phil Robertson, the patriarch in A&E´s "Duck Dynasty," won´t be duck calling on air anytime soon. The network suspended him after slamming gays in a magazine interview. In the January issue of GQ, Robertson said homosexuality is a sin and puts it in the same category as bestiality and promiscuity. "It seems like, to me, a vagina -- as a man -- would be more desirable than a man´s anus. That´s just me. I´m just thinking: There´s more there! She´s got more to offer. I mean, come on, dudes! You know
A&E broke its silence on Duck Dynasty star Phil Robertson’s anti-gay comments late Wednesday. The cable network announced Robertson is off the hit show for the time being. The network issued the following statement to EW: “We are extremely disappointed to have read Phil Robertson’s comments in GQ, which are based on his own personal beliefs and are not reflected in the series Duck Dynasty. His personal views in no way reflect those of A+E Networks, who have always been strong supporters and champions of the LGBT community. The network has placed Phil under hiatus from filming indefinitely.”
President Barack Obama sent Russia a clear message about its treatment of gays and lesbians with who he is — and isn’t — sending to represent the United States at the Sochi Olympics. Billie Jean King will be one of two openly gay athletes in the U.S. delegation for the opening and closing ceremonies, Obama announced Tuesday. For the first time since 2000, however, the U.S. will not send a president, former president, first lady or vice president to the Games. Russia has come under fierce criticism for passing national laws banning “gay propaganda.” Though the White House did not specifically address
The gay and lesbian rights group GLAAD is slamming ´Duck Dynasty´ patriarch Phil Robertson for comments he made about homosexuality to GQ magazine, and challenging the show´s network, A&E, to take action against its most popular star. In a wide-ranging interview, Robertson shared his thoughts on homosexuality and religion. After stating in very graphic terms his preference for heterosexual sex over homosexual sex, Robertson launched into more thoughts about homosexuality and sinning. “Everything is blurred on what’s right and what’s wrong... Sin becomes fine,” he said.
Yes, she really said it. On CNN’s Piers Morgan Live Tuesday, in a brief discussion about President Obama, Barbara Walters actually said, “We thought that he was going to be - I shouldn´t say this at Christmastime, but - the next messiah” (video follows with transcript and commentary): PIERS MORGAN, HOST: You have interviewed every president of my lifetime. Why is Obama facing so much opposition now? Why is he struggling so much to really fulfill the great flame of ambition and excitement that he was elected on originally in 2009?
Everyone is doing thoughtful year-end pieces on President Obama. Writers and reporters agree he’s had his worst year ever. I infer from most of their essays an unstated but broadly held sense of foreboding: There’s no particular reason to believe next year will be better, and in fact signs and indications point to continued trouble. I would add that in recent weeks I have begun to worry about the basic competency of the administration, its ability to perform the most fundamental duties of executive management. One reason I worry is that I frequently speak with people who interact with the White
O ne year removed from re-election, President Obama´s approval rating has sunk to the lowest level of his presidency. Furthermore, Obama´s popularity among the Democratic Party base — whose rejuvenated support proved crucial last November — took a huge hit this past year. Only 54 percent of self-described liberals "very strongly" approve of Obama´s job performance, according to a Pew survey released this week. That´s down from an all-time high of nearly 90 percent, and a significant decline from the 73 percent who strongly approved of the president back in June. Why the steep drop? Well, the first year of Obama´s second term
