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.'

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

Mayor Rahm Emanuel will not raise sales or property taxes to close a $338.7 million gap in next year’s budget but all bets are off in 2015, when the shortfall balloons to $1 billion without pension reform, a top mayoral aide said Wednesday. In 2015, the city is required by state law to make a $600 million contribution to stabilize police and fire pension funds that now have assets to cover just 30.5 and 25 percent of their respective liabilities.

Hundreds of gang members will be invited to a summit in Chicago in an attempt to broker peace in the bloodiest neighborhoods — 20 years after “gang summits” here and in other states drew national attention, organizers said Wednesday. The Rev. Gregory Tatum, a California pastor with Chicago roots, said he hopes the Rev. Jesse Jackson and the Rev. Al Sharpton will attend the Sept. 27-28 summit. Jackson spoke at a gang summit two decades ago in Chicago, delivering a message to gang members that they were the “new frontier of the civil rights struggle.”

Mayor Rahm Emanuel closed the books on 2012 with $33.4 million in unallocated cash on hand — down from $167 million the year before — while adding to the mountain of debt piled on Chicago taxpayers, year-end audits show. Last week, Moody’s Investors ordered an unprecedented triple-drop in the city’s bond rating, citing Chicago’s “very large and growing” pension liabilities, “significant” debt service payments, “unrelenting public safety demands” and historic reluctance to raise local taxes that has continued under Emanuel.

A new review is questioning the effectiveness of two key drugs enlisted in the fight against influenza and in turn the investments by governments to stockpile the drugs in the event of a global flu outbreak. The antiviral drugs Tamiflu (oseltamivir) and Relenza (zanamivir ) are commonly used to treat influenza in healthy adults and children. In the case of Tamiflu, the drug does shorten symptoms of influenza by about half a day - as the manufacturer suggests - but there is insufficient evidence to support claims that it reduces hospital admissions or serious complications, such as confirmed pneumonia or

Solar power has won the global argument. Photovoltaic energy is already so cheap that it competes with oil, diesel and liquefied natural gas in much of Asia without subsidies. Roughly 29pc of electricity capacity added in America last year came from solar, rising to 100pc even in Massachusetts and Vermont.[Snip] The technology is improving so fast--helped by the US military--that it has achieved a virtous circle. Michael Parker and Flora Chang, at Sanford Bernstein, say we entering a new order of "global energy deflation" that must ineluctably erode the viability of oil, gas and the fossil fuel nexus over time.
