Did Obama Cheat? How to
Answer the Question

American Thinker, by Paul Murphy

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 11/17/2012 5:50:52 AM

There are 15 states with photo ID requirements for voting. Mr. Obama lost in all of them. In places with the weakest controls, specifically counties in Florida, Ohio, Colorado, and Pennsylvania, he generally drew turnouts in the 90% or greater range and won by better than 95% of the vote. Losers tend to look for external explanations, and a lot of conservatives looking at numbers like those from Florida´s St. Lucie County (where Mr. Obama got 247,713 votes from only 175,554 registered voters) are starting to question the legitimacy of the electoral results as reported.

Of course the democrats cheated. They have a long history of cheating, in order to win elections and they have perfected their con.

One of our ex-residents, living in an assisted living complex was taken to the polls by the democrat organizers in their "free bus", along with everyone else capable of traveling and the entire trip to the polls they were told the republicans would be taking away their medicare and kicking them out into the street, so they had to vote straight democrat to save their assisted living arraignments. The driver scared her so she voted straight democrat, instead of voting for Romney.

Talk about wonky.

I read every word of that article and at the end came up with a single question: Who is going to read this article, understand it and then do anything about it?

...the system works only if we trust it -- and having a majority in the GOP write off a minority who think the results were rigged serves nobody. Not even Democrats.

It may have been fun for Mr. Murphy to put this all together but I have another point. He assumes that "a majority in the GOP wrote off a minority who think the results were rigged". How does Mr. Murphy know for certain that a "minority" of GOP voters think Obama won this election fraudulently? From every one I spoke with, all believe this election was riggefd from the day O was elected in ´08.

Maybe someone should actually check the voter roles and check every vote for people who have addresses and who have registered to vote, which Mr. Murphy does mention. But who is going to do that?

The lack of outrage on the GOP side about voter fraud we KNOW about is staggering to me. We all know this election was stolen.

I live in MA. I don´t think he cheated here, I think our voters are just that stupid. And everytime they complain about things costing more, their taxes, them getting less, our economy doing poorly, I´m going to tell them they voted for that.
Consequences for their actions, common sense and logic are not in their understanding.

If it´s true the the vote total reflected more people voted than were registered why is the County Clerk not fired? I thought the Clerk certified the election results as being correct?

What is "wonky" about that? You have 175,554 registered voters, yet Obama receives 247,713 votes.

The republicans PR machine is a disaster and they have no activist groups like the left had thousands.Why isn´t Issa calling these suspicious vote result districts before congress> Because they´re scared of the media.

Instead of addressing the vote fraud,they´ll reach out to hispanics young people tax increasers and the like.

If you haven´t taken a course in Statistics in college, the article might not make sense; however, as others here have pointed out, there are nuggets of truth in the article that make sense without the statistics.

It bothers me that the GOP is not fighting for recounts and some investigation into counties where there was more voting than there were voters.

Before the 2014 and 2016 elections, there must be voter ID laws in place in as many states as possible. The GOP must make that their mission. No more Mr. Nice guys, or reaching across across the aisle. I, for one, don´t want them making any deals with the Demrats because it will ultimately hurt me and mine.

Answer to the question in the headline: Hell yes! He has done that all his life.

Voter ID is key.
There were scores of folks signing people up to vote at the grocery stores, just sign the document, no need to show any ID at all, they filled out the form for you. In several weeks time the voter card was mailed. Never showed any form of ID whatsoever. At that time the migrants were still here, wonder how many of them signed up and then voted absentee?? In years past we were asked for ID at the polls, not this year.

Photo ID is the only way to prevent this from happening. As long as the media and the courts claim this is racist or disenfranchising, we will continue to see fraud.

Its always been a fascination how more people can vote than are registered.

While I believe there to be widespread cheating, there is no verifiable way to prove it, and we just got beat because we aren´t going to be giving away any goodies like our opposition.

Like it or not, it just boils down to that.

And heard he received 100% of the vote in 59 districts withing Philly. Imagine, not even 1 vote for Romney?

We should keep presenting these points as it will clearly start the process of undermining the legitimacy of his "win".

As far as ID, sure, but better yet, finger print technology. We have data base, and the means, so let´s use it.

#9, don´t depend on Issa. He´s is just a distraction, a part of the Washington Grand Kabuki that keeps the peasants entertained. Issa has had "investigations" going for years. Nothing ever happens. What are his results? Well, let´s see: no charges brought against anyone, no one referred to any court and no resignations. In short, no results. Zero.

On second thought, there is one result and it happens to be the one intended. Issa gets to look like he´s busy doing something for the sheep - unless the sheep look to closely. DC is totally dysfunctional at every level and there is no way it can ever be fixed.

The Republican leaders should be outraged. They should be screaming to high heaven. Why are they silent?

Ans: The Republican leaders are in full agreement with the liberals.

The difference lies within the pace of our transformation to Socialism. The democrats want to wake up tomorrow morning in a socalist nation while the Republicans are willing to wait until next week.

Certainly not! Obama didn´t cheat in the election, nor did he get anything less than A+ in his very hard college classes. His election victory reflects the widespread confidence of Americans for their historic President, reaching 100% in the most enlightened (not to mention cool) districts.

No small credit belongs to Joe Biden´s beartrap-like grasp of foreign conditions and ability to express them when it counts, and to the serenity of a glamorous and elegant first lady who was beloved by all on first sight.

Where´s that army of GOP lawyers we heard about, the ones poised to charge in where necessary should the election turn flaky?

I´d love a Hollywood ending to this, these same lawyers are lining up there ducks, ready to blow the lid off this before the election is certified. It would tear the country apart, big time. Just what the doctor ordered.

Voter ID won`t solve the problem. Early voting is the problem. To ensure a real count of votes, have to be only one day of voting with electronic monitoring of electors. With today`s technology is not hard to have all precincts connected to a main computer. Once a person is presenting an ID at one precinct, automatically is cleared at all of them.

There are voter ID laws in Michigan and Obama won handily. A volunteer where I voted in Michigan actually apologized for having to ask for ID. Of course I assured her it was no problem and I was more than happy to oblige. She then informed me that the law was unfair and even sighted an example of the "unfairness" to me. Needless to say, I was unswayed and voted a straight Republican ticket. I am still annoyed!!

Please quit talking about abolishing early voting. You may as well try to abolish the drive-thru window at restaurants. For people who have full schedules, for people who are physically unable to wait on line for long periods, and for people without easy transportation to the polls, early voting is a godsend. Once people experience it, it becomes almost impossible to make them give it up.

Conservatives are smart. Surely they can figure out a way to preserve early voting while at the same time preventing vote fraud. (And what is keeping Republicans from taking nursing home residents to the polls to do early voting???)

Purple thumbs. Banks & other businesses use fingerprints. Even absentee ballots can have a post it covered spot to add a fingerprint.

When questioned about the St Lucie huge discrepancy in registered voters & votes counted, a FL house member told the news that they´d register the fish under a bridge if they could. This will not stop.

# 29 I always early vote. That doesn´t make it right. Some states start in early October. The debates haven´t even started. I think early voting should be abolished. Absentee ballots should only go to true shut-ins, military and ex-pats. No exit polling should be allowed to be broadcast and no results until every state has finished voting and is counted completely. Media does their best to sway the vote by giving results immediately. Needless to say, voter ID is a must.

Forget about the polling. A statistical sample of actual ballots should be taken and those votes verified with the voter, and voter registration lists. If a large number are fraudulent (95% were wrong in the St Lucie County sample), then the election results should be overturned.

Matter of fact the only guy fighting the fraud, and by the way the sanctity of your vote, is a Tea Party candidate, Allen West.

Anyone still supporting the Republican Establishment is as guilty as they are for not defending your vote. So quit your whining. You demand to be led by people who will not defend your rights. You are the cause of the problem.

#39 makes a very good point. Until we Americans grow whatever it takes to stand up to the voting organizations, we shall continually be nothing but dirt under the feet of the controlling politicians who push the elections any way they wish. And, until that happens, we might as well just lay back and enjoy the dirt we are being dealt. Voter IDs are the only way to go along with the purple thumb and a red "X" on your nose!!

In an op-ed published in the Boston Globe on Easter Sunday and posted on the State Department website, Secretary of State John Kerry recalled his days as an altar boy and pointed out that he is “the first Catholic Secretary of State in 33 years.” Alexander Haig, who served as secretary of state to President Ronald Reagan from January 1981 to July 1982, was also a Catholic. Last month, I traveled to Rome with President Obama, where I was honored to meet His Holiness Pope Francis,” said Kerry. “As an altar boy six decades ago, I never imagined that I

(Video) A car plowed into a Fort Myers church filled with 200 people celebrating Easter on Sunday night, injuring 21. Fort Myers police responded to the chaotic scene shortly before 8 p.m. at the Second Haitian Baptist Church on 3660 Central Ave., Lt. Victor Medico said. When officers arrived, church members were using car jacks to try to lift the vehicle off churchgoers who were trapped underneath. Mary Briggs, spokeswoman for Lee Memorial Health System, said 18 people were taken to Lee County hospitals. Ten of the injured were taken to Lee Memorial Hospital, one of which was discharged late Sunday.

CLEARWATER — In the mid-1970s, Wayne Phillips saw a television program telling the story of the Shroud of Turin, a centuries-old linen cloth that bears the image of a crucified man. At first, he was miffed. Years of Catholic schooling — Jesuit High School in Tampa and Notre Dame University — and he had never known about this artifact? (He would later learn that it was a delicate subject at the Vatican.) A doctor, he has a curious mind. A mind shaped by logic and by science. But as a Catholic, he understands some beliefs are still a mystery. He

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House.

I began reading the entirety of the first section of the New York Times at nine years old, and continued that practice, more or less, for decades.(snip) ...the power of reverence, intrinsic to what I call the “cascade” of The Times: the near avalanche-like flow and distribution of information through electronic and print networks: through like-minded network newscasts, magazines, local newspaper s, blogs, daytime talk TV, late-night entertainment, statements at media award ceremonies, the celebrity Twitterverse, etc. The cascade rolls through Saturday Night Live, Jon Stewart, The New Yorker, the mouths of third-grade teachers, Elmo, Madonna and Susan Sarandon …through

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

In a speech earlier this week, Lisa O. Monaco, President Barack Obama’s assistant for homeland security and counterterrorism, insisted that American parents must be vigilant because their “confrontational” children could be on the verge of becoming terrorists. Monaco’s full, prepared text is available here. She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15. Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings. Interestingly, the Harvard grad failed to mention the religion or the motive of brothers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after
