Romney wins in a landslide -- Las Vegas
oddsmaker doubles down on prediction

Fox News.com, by Wayne Allyn Root

Original Article

Posted By:Bubbasuncle, 10/9/2012 12:06:02 PM

Yes, you read that headline correctly. I am a Las Vegas oddsmaker (and former Libertarian vice presidential candidate) and here's why I am so boldly predicting a Romney landslide. In November of 2004, only days before the presidential election, I went on CNBC and predicted a Bush victory by 3 points and 30 electoral votes. Every poll at the time showed Kerry in the lead. Bush won by 3 and 35. Newsmax magazine called it the most accurate prediction of 2004. In October of 2006, I went on Fox News to predict the GOP would get slaughtered

Still, Broken Glass!
And I look for an October Surprise of Israel and the United States launching an attack on Iran. Anything to make Our Dear Reader appear presidential.

There you go.
An expert speaks.

Does look like Obama must wag the dog and attack someone.
Bomb Libya.
Attack Iran.
Anything to make voters forget what a weak loser Obama looked like in the debate.

Obama is the month of surprise and Obama always has some trick up his sleeve.

Sorry for the double post.
Does anyone really think that if the Desperate Won tries any of the wag the dog type military actions that it would change peoples minds? I doubt it, I think that the die is cast and voters would see right trough it.

I have come to the conclusion that everyone except the hardcore moonbat koolaide drinkers were going wth Romney all along. After the debate, they can noe come out and say that they are supporting Mitt because he did so well. It just gave them an out. I'm fine with that. Whatever it takes to get our country back!

I think its now Romney's to lose. If he and Ryan stay steady and confident, they'll win barring some "October surprise" launched by Zero.

FTA: "But worst of all for Mr. Obama, several recent polls show Romney competitive in Illinois -- Obama’s home state. Romney is actually winning by a landslide in the suburbs of Obama’s Chicago. Even in Cook County, the country’s biggest Democratic stronghold, Romney leads by double digits among independents (43-31) and white voters (53-40). These are very bad signs for Obama."

Heh heh heh. By Halloween. In play.

While I certainly hope that he is correct, I noticed a couple of glaring omissions. He does not mention at any point what his prediction was for the outcome of either the 2008 or 2010 elections. This suggests that he got those wrong. I always question someone who makes predictions who only tells me about the times they got it right. No human always gets their predictions right. I want to know what you think caused you to be wrong when you were wrong.

A breath of fresh air. Nevertheless, I know that Axelrod et al are bemoaning the fact that Romney has never been divorced so they could steal his divorce records. We also know they're leaving no stone unturned in their search for the perfect scandal. Of course, the WaPo and NYT are doing the same.

In my historically Democrat county of rural, northwestern NC, the old-school Democrats have changed their party registration to reflect majority Republicans for the first time EVER. They do not recognize their parents' and grandparents' Democrat party. The Dem Party chair has refused - yes refused! - the shipment of Obama yard signs from State Dem headquarters in Raleigh! Astonishing but very, very telling. Go Mitt - America is desperate for a Leader.

The reason WAR didn't talk about 2008 or 2010 was there was very little doubt how those were going to turn out. The others were situations where WAR said one thing, and everyone else said something else. Is he always right? No. BUT HE IS THIS TIME.

SIMFEROPOL, Ukraine, Ukraine - Masked gunmen stormed the parliament of Ukraine´s strategic Crimea region as Russian fighter jets screamed above the border, while Ukraine´s newly formed government pledged to prevent a national breakup with the strong backing of the West - the stirrings of a potentially dangerous confrontation reminiscent of Cold War brinksmanship. Moscow reportedly granted shelter to Ukraine´s fugitive president, Viktor Yanukovych, who was said to be holed up in a luxury government retreat and to have scheduled a news conference Friday near the Ukrainian border.

There have been times when the CNN host Piers Morgan didn’t seem to like America very much — and American audiences have been more than willing to return the favor. Three years after taking over for Larry King, Mr. Morgan has seen the ratings for “Piers Morgan Live” hit some new lows, drawing a fraction of viewers compared with competitors at Fox News and MSNBC. (Snip) It’s been an unhappy collision between a British television personality who refuses to assimilate — the only football he cares about is round and his lectures on guns were rife with contempt — and a CNN audience that

On May 12, 1992, Stan Greenberg and Celinda Lake, top pollsters for Bill Clinton’s presidential campaign, issued a confidential memo. The memo’s subject was “Research on Hillary Clinton.” Voters admired the strength of the Arkansas first couple, the pollsters wrote. However, “they also fear that only someone too politically ambitious, too strong, and too ruthless could survive such controversy so well.” Their conclusion: “What voters find slick in Bill Clinton, they find ruthless in Hillary.” The full memo is one of many previously unpublished documents contained in the archive of one of Hillary Clinton’s best friends and advisers, documents that

NEW ORLEANS — AJ McCarron got up slowly and walked alone to the sideline with the full weight of another dispiriting loss weighing him down. His fumble on a sack turned into an Oklahoma touchdown with 47 seconds left, sealing the Sooners’ 45-31 victory over Alabama in the Sugar Bowl on Thursday night. In a painful twist, McCarron ended his illustrious college career by losing twice in a row after going 36-2 in his first 38 games at Alabama. Oklahoma, a 17-point underdog, scored two touchdowns off his interceptions in the first half before capping the upset by returning his

Federal authorities said Thursday they have arrested and charged a Texas man in connection with the “knockout game,” accusing him of a hate crime for targeting a black man for a vicious street attack. Most knockout victims that have appeared in news reports have been white, but the Justice Department said in this instance the victim was a 79-year-old black man, and stepped in with federal charges. “Suspected crimes of this nature will simply not be tolerated,” said Kenneth Magidson, the U.S. attorney for the southern district of Texas. “Evidence of hate crimes will be vigorously investigated and prosecuted with

John Podesta was just named as a new senior-level adviser to President Obama last week, but he´s already ruffling Republican feathers. In a profile published late Tuesday night by Politico Magazine, Podesta is quoted comparing Republicans to the infamous cult led by Jim Jones, who was responsible for the 1978 cyanide poisoning of more than 900 of his followers in Guyana. "They need to focus on executive action given that they are facing a second term against a cult worthy of Jonestown in charge of one of the houses of Congress," said Podesta of what Obama´s White House team faces.

That same man attended February’s state dinner in honor of French President Francois Hollande.

LONDON - Peaches Geldof, the wild-child second daughter of concert organizer Bob Geldof who worked as a model, a television presenter and a fashion writer and filled the pages of British tabloids with her late-night antics, has died at age 25. There was no immediate word on the cause of her death at her home in Wrotham, Kent, southeast England. Her father said in a statement Monday: "Peaches has died. We are beyond pain." "She was the wildest, funniest, cleverest, wittiest and the most bonkers of all of us," he said. "Writing 'was' destroys me afresh. What a beautiful child. How is this possible that we will not see her again? How is that bearable? We loved her and will cherish her forever."

Camp, R-Mich., did not specify which laws Lerner may have broken. Lerner´s lawyer, William W. Taylor III, has said she broke no laws.

Ms. Lerner faces a vote in the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee on Thursday that could begin the process of accusing her of contempt of Congress. The Ways and Means Committee announced that it will hold a vote Wednesday on whether to officially accuse Ms. Lerner of breaking the law by

Even as he sharply criticized President Obama for his handling of foreign affairs and health care, Mr. Bush made clear that he would run against the style of politics that has characterized recent Republican nominating contests. He said he would decide by the end of the year, in part on whether he thinks he could avoid “the vortex of
