In Ohio, the GOP puzzles
over missing white voters

Washington Examiner, by Byron York

Original Article

Posted By:Judy W., 11/13/2012 8:03:03 AM

The latest post-election question is whether Republicans were blind to the defeat headed their way because they chose to live in a cocoon in which they paid attention only to Fox News, conservative talk radio and right-wing websites. (Snip) Out in the field, the Republicans actually involved in the election are talking about different things. For example, in Ohio -- the most hotly contested state in the entire race -- Republicans are asking why a large group of voters, carefully cultivated through personal contacts and putative supporters of Mitt Romney, just didn´t show up at the polls.

Ohio, Florida, and Colorado clearly stolen.

Each state used a different tactic to count only dem votes wherever possible.

Maybe they did show up,but their votes were changed or deleted by the time they were counted?

Here in Pennsylvania, I am a registered democrat, as is my daughter. My wife and son are registered as republicans.
I was bombarded with messages from the President Zero campaign, right up to and including election day.
But we received just one call from republicans, on the afternoon of election day, asking me if we voted. Nothing else.
Zero had his ground game on in Pa, and shouldabeen president romney did not.

I live in OH, and they have to do something about the early voting. The absentee ballots are bad enough, but the dems were literally busing in people to vote, buying them lunch, etc. Since most of the workers at the Cuyahoga County Board of Elections are surly black women, I´m sure these ´voters´ were not scrutinized appropriately. The Republicans are supposed to have a presence there, but I doubt if they ever stand up to these people for fear of the ´racist´ accusation.

I sometimes wonder if somehow Republican ballots are thrown out, or defaced so as to be uncounted.

What´s the mystery? We have many posters on these threads here who stated they would not vote for Romney.

Waiting for their ideologically pure candidate has worked out well for them, eh?

Sheesh....tunnel vision.

I´m a livelong Ohioan. I know where those "missing white voters" from Ohio are--they got fed up and moved to red states in the South and West over the past four years.

These are people who work, and that´s where the jobs are.

A big clue is when the democrats would not allow the Republican poll watchers into the polling places. Again, no action to correct or punish this abuse by any authorities.

America is now a third-world style dictatorship, where elections are rigged. We will soon be a third-world type economy.

Why don´t Republicans show up in nursing homes helping the residents vote the first day of early voting? Of course having a candidate with a couple concrete proposals to vote FOR might propel people to the voting booth.

#3-Our experience here in Chester County was different from yours.
My wife & I are registered as ´´No Affiliation´´.
On Thurs & Fri before Nov 6th we received 30 or so calls each day from the Romney campaign. 15-20 Sat,Sun & Mon. Even a few on Tues. 1 from Moochelle.
Maybe they spent too much time & money on the perceived ´´Independents´´? And not enough get out the Republican vote.
It´s over! I´m begining to get a crick in my neck from all this navel-gazing.

#9. No question that Republicans need a better ground game, but I don´t buy your snarky comment about Romney. The other side didn´t need an agenda, just $300 million to define our candidate as a felon, tax cheat, job killer, and murderer, accusations all unanswered and unquestioned. When you have an electorate that thinks at the 2nd grade level, that´s all you need.

They´re not missing, it´s just that they were not counted. Where is the media on all the irregularities at the polls. In 2004 they screamed bloody murder that there was fraud in Ohio and to this day they still drone on about it. Fast forward (I´m sorry for using the word) to today, nothing, even though there is much more evidence to the contrary now than eight years ago.

FTA: Developing a clear idea of why Romney lost is important because it will help Republicans fix the things that need to be fixed -- and not blow up the party if there are less radical solutions.


We already have a clear idea of why Romney lost and it has nothing to do with a lack of zeal on conservatives for Romney! It´s the disappearance of our votes.

This cannot be cleaned up until we get back to the original way of voting, eliminating the many, many days of voting that aids and abets democrat vote theft and multiple identies/addresses/states of fraudulent voters.

Lord, please help up who cannot help ourselves!!

The Democrat may no longer believe in God, the Constitution or even motherhood and apple pie, but he devoutly believes that somewhere out there Republicans are sitting in a sealed room and plotting to bring back the 50s. And if not the 50s, then at least the early 60s. The left accuses the right of being deeply paranoid. Meanwhile the left is convinced that every Republican sneeze is a racial putdown of America’s first black president since Bill Clinton.

The deputy pulled over Hill on U.S. Highway 140 in White City and handed him a $260 ticket for improperly using his headlights, saying another deputy had seen the flashing lights from behind the UPS truck and alerted him to stop the log truck because of the signaling. Outraged, Hill decided to fight the ticket, and on Wednesday, a Jackson County Justice Court judge

Shutting down a speaker, or a professor, or a book with which you strongly disagree is nothing new. Indeed, if there’s anything really new about Brandeis’ disinvitation to Ayaan Hirsi Ali, it’s that they invited her at all, no matter how briefly. If the school’s donors took freedom seriously, they’d cancel their contributions. But the key to understanding Brandeis is that it has been this way for half a century. Banning Ayaan is indeed the fulfillment of a famous call to censorship by one of the most famous leftist philosophers of the last century: Herbert Marcuse, a Brandeis professor who

Zeituni Onyango, President Obama´s illegal alien aunt, died this week of cancer and other complications. I hope she rests in peace. America, however, should be up in arms. Auntie Zeituni is an enduring symbol of all that is wrong with this country´s immigration "policy" -- or rather, its complete lack of a coherent, enforceable system of laws and rules that puts the national interest first. She was a beneficiary of the welfare state run amok, enabled by bipartisan fecklessness. To the bitter end, she bit the hand that fed her with predictable ingratitude and metastatic entitlement.

"How green bullying, junk science and EU lies killed off another successful industry," I wrote in a piece a few months back. The story went roughly like this: 1. Greenpeace and similar organisations decide to target chemicals industry. 2. They need a heartwarming poster species so they rope in bees. Bees become the new polar bear, about to die out any moment with catastrophic consequences for the world: no honey ever again; also, we all die because who will pollinate our crops? Bees are dying, Greenpeace and co decide, because of chemicals called "neonicotinoids".

When Brandeis University withdrew an honorary degree for Ayaan Hirsi Ali after a student-professor firestorm branded her an "Islamophobe," the campus in effect declared itself an outpost of Islamic law, American-style. Officially, Brandeis is now a place where critics of Islam -- "blasphemers" and "apostates," according to Islamic law -- are scorned and rejected. Not that Brandeis put it that way in its unsigned announcement about Hirsi Ali´s dis-invitation, which notes: "She is a compelling public figure and advocate for women´s rights, and we respect and appreciate her work to protect and defend the rights of women and girls throughout the

Recently, Copenhagen Zoo shot a young giraffe named Marius with a bolt gun, publicly dissected it—like a hanged criminal in eighteenth-century England—in front of children, and then fed the remains to the zoo’s lions. Marius was killed, the zoo said, because there was no space for him, his genes were already well represented in European breeding populations, and he was therefore a surplus animal. Despite offers from other zoos and even a private individual to take Marius, the Danish zoo wanted to avoid the possibility of inbreeding and thought that euthanasia was the best solution.

A multiple stabbing attack by a lone perpetrator in a Pennsylvania school, in which more than 20 were wounded, has everyone crying for more metal detectors in schools, and for more guns in the hands of teachers, other school personnel and even students. Now, I’m a big proponent of an armed citizenry. I think an armed citizenry is one of the greatest, most effective deterrents to crime. But when I heard about this incident, my first thought was, “Whatsamatta, weren’t there any chairs in that school?” I believe this particular attack could have been curtailed without a single gun.

Forty years is roughly the length of a working lifetime—and long enough for history to have taken some unexpected turns. And to have proved that long-term forecasts based on extrapolations of existing trends usually end up wide of the mark. The list of failed prophecies from the 1970s is rather long. The conventional wisdom of the time was more than usually unreliable. Example: the Club of Rome´s Limits to Growth report in 1972, predicting that the world was running out of oil and other natural resources. For a while that seemed right, as the 1973 and 1979 OPEC oil price hikes

The son of the Nevada rancher locked in an increasingly tense land dispute with the federal government, says their cowboys managed to break a blockade and retrieve around 30 head of cattle. Federal agents swooped on Tuesday after Cliven Bundy, dubbed the last remaining rancher in southern Nevada, refused to remove his herd of 900 cows from land he claims has been in his family since 1870. The heavily-armed federal agents, equipped with eight helicopters and backed-up by snipers, surrounded the Bundy ranch after the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) attained a federal court order to confiscate the family´s herd.

Following the massacre of grammar-school children in Newtown, Conn., in December 2012, high-powered weapons have been used to kill innocent victims in more senseless public incidents. Those killings, however, are only a fragment of the total harm caused by the misuse of firearms. Each year, more than 30,000 people die in the United States in firearm-related incidents. Many of those deaths involve handguns. The adoption of rules that will lessen the number of those incidents should be a matter of primary concern to both federal and state legislators. Legislatures are in a far better position than judges to assess the

Big Government: As students flood Twitter with images of inedible slop, it´s clear that Michelle Obama´s government school lunch revamp is a costly failure. It´s time to get the feds out of kids´ lunch boxes. The $12 billion federal student lunch program, which serves 30.7 million kids, is losing participants fast — more than a million just last year, according to a recent Government Accountability Office report. The reason: the first lady´s Healthy Hunger-free Kids Act, an act that has accomplished exactly the opposite of what it claimed it would — leaving hungry, angry, disgusted kids and dumpsters full of wasted

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.

Nearly a year into the IRS scandal, we still don´t know exactly what happened—though we are finally getting an inkling.

The average citizen might be dizzied by the torrent of confusing terms—BOLO lists, Tigta, 501(c)(4)—and the array of accusations that have made up this IRS investigation.
