Romney: Heart told him he´d win,
until he saw Fla.

Associated Press, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 3/3/2013 11:33:38 AM

WASHINGTON— Mitt Romney says his heart said he was going to win the presidency, but when early results came in on election night, he knew it was not to be. The GOP nominee tells "Fox News Sunday" that he knew his campaign was in trouble when exit polls suggested a close race in Florida. Romney thought he´d win the state solidly. Obama ended up taking Florida and won the election by a wide margin in the electoral vote. Romney says there was "a slow recognition" at that time that President Barack Obama would win —

The far right staying home on top of wide spread voter fraud. He didn´t stand a chance. He would have won easily in the America I grew up in.

I thought he´d win Florida until late morning I got a bad pit in the stomach feel when I saw the long lines. Now I´m convinced massive fraud occurred.

Mr. Romney, the truth is, you did win that day. Now the Obama crowd can point to the election results and claim otherwise, but I believe you did win. I believe most legitimate, one-time voters chose you. And I believe that is a group of Americans that Obama is going to find difficult to govern/rule/dicate to, whatever.

Like #2, I was feeling good up until Tuesday morning when I saw the long lines, and out-of-state college students being bused to the polls. I got the same feeling in my stomach.

When I think back on the huge number of endorsements Romney/Ryan got from newspapers that you´d normally expect to back Obama, and the huge crowds that Romney/Ryan drew as opposed to the paltry ones Obama was drawing, it´s hard to deny the idea that something very bad happened. R/R should have won.

He lost Florida the same way Allen West lost, fraud. HOLDER intimidated the election clerks to stop verifying ID´s for registered voters, TRUE THE VOTE was submitting duplicate registrations and out of state and the dead, the clerks were sorting through this until the unJustice Dept stepped and sued the state, to assure the fraud.

GOP was totally unprepared for widespread vote fraud. How can this be? Did they not notice ACORN? Did they not notice the Black Panther intimidation? Did they not notice so called ´early voting´? The playbook was pretty simple: log the early vote and then block the legitimate vote on election day by long lines and delays. Not a peep out of any Republican even hinting at fraud - then they ask for donations? Yeah, right.

GOP was prepared for voter fraud. They were not prepared for flipping of vote machines because that´s something new and far more dangerous. There is no way that the country which voted entirely Republican in 2010 suddenly had a change of heart two years later when essentially nothing was improved. It was fraud - his heart was right and so was his polling data. Don´t fall for this bogus discussion about how the Republicans need to change.

Machines that can be programmed are worse than the hanging chads of dumb voters.

GOP agreed in 80´s (?) not to go after voter fraud in the ´burbs or inner city, rather--the heavily minority communities. Why that?

I like Mitt and Ann out front and center (and note the Mormon questions now put to bed by the media?) Not only does he get an "I told you so" moment but we do too and the Romney´s have class.

Rubio did not deliver Florida but rather made it about his favorite minority and getting the GOP to embrace amnesty. I believe GWB tried amnesty of sorts with a path to citizenship and the dems rejected it? How fast the voting public forgets--that and Hillarycare that obaMao finally pushed through with the devious duo Pelousi and Dirty Harry usurping powers to ramrod it through.

Perfect storm, we had our chance, and now ought to check out the signs of the times IMO. Ahmabeingbad in Iran wishes to blow up the world and usher in the 12th Imam. North Korea, China and Russia in the mix as the plot thickens.

I doubt the Romney´s are fatalists as I am?

It is heart breaking that this has happened.

The ´Peaceful Transition of Power´ may be the biggest victim of this tragedy.

At least, I hope so.

There are two things I will believe to my dying day. That massive vote fraud occurred in the 2012 elections. Mitt Romney should be President and Ross Perot was paid to run in the 1992 elections to steal votes that would have gone to President George H.W. Bush so as to ensure a win for bill clinton.

The voter fraud paranoia is just another excuse from the Romney water carriers; for a home truth they cannot bear. Romney was a horrendous candidate principled conservatives warned about since 2006! Despite a real unemployment rate topping 17%, Romney could not make his case w/the electorate!!!!! The voters took full measure of Romney and found him wanting; w/o either conviction or core principle; a dissembler and waffler, desperate to please. So they decided to vote for the devil they knew. End of story.

Book: White House scrambled
after Joe Biden´s gay marriage comments
Politico, by Edward-Isaac Dovere    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 4/16/2014 11:18:17 PM     Post Reply
Vice President Joe Biden really did get ahead of President Barack Obama on accepting gay marriage in 2012 — and the White House really wasn’t happy about it, despite the two leaders’ many attempts to claim otherwise. That’s the story laid out in Jo Becker’s new book, “Forcing the Spring,” which documents the past few years of successful efforts to expand the legalization of gay marriage, according to an advance copy obtained by POLITICO. Speculation that Biden’s comments on “Meet the Press” in May 2012 were meant as a trial balloon, Becker writes, came from people “not privy to the

WASHINGTON — Former President Jimmy Carter joined fellow Nobel laureates Wednesday in opposing Keystone XL, insisting that approving the pipeline would trigger “more climate upheaval” around the globe. In an open letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, Carter and the nine other Nobel Peace Prize winners bluntly warned the leaders: “Your decision on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline will define your climate legacy.” The missive, published as an advertisement in Politico, represents the first time Carter has taken a position on the $5.4 billion project and makes him the first former president to come

President Obama said Wednesday that Russia realizes the U.S. military is “significantly superior” to its own and does not want war with the United States. Asked in an interview with CBS News about a Russian fighter buzzing a U.S. Navy ship in the Black Sea on Saturday, Obama said, “They’re not interested in any kind of military confrontation with us, understanding that our conventional forces are significantly superior to the Russians.” Obama accused Russian President Vladimir Putin of being behind uprisings in Ukraine in which government buildings have been taken over. Ukraine’s government has launched an operation against the separatists

AUSTIN, Tex. — The last nine months of Rick Perry’s tenure as the longest-serving governor of Texas were supposed to be a political victory lap. Greg Abbott, the Republican state attorney general, and Wendy Davis, the Democratic state senator, both of whom are vying to replace Mr. Perry, have been sparring across Texas.

GUANTANAMO BAY NAVAL BASE—Victims of the 9/11 terror attacks expressed shock that the FBI may be meddling in the hearings here, and some speculated that it is part of an effort by the Obama administration to completely derail the hearings and force them into federal court stateside. Families of those killed in the 9/11 terror attacks traveled here with the intent of watching their family members’ accused killers face justice. However, many say they were horrified earlier this week when pre-trial hearings came to a halt over revelations that the FBI had launched an investigation into the accused terrorist’s defense

The rally at the Hy-Vee Conference Center will feature Nebraska Sen. Deb Fischer, Iowa´s Lieutenant Gov. Kim Reynolds, and Kay Orr, the former Nebraska governor who was the country´s first Republican female governor. It will likely also make it difficult for Democrats to use the "war on women" card in Iowa. State Senator Ernst gained national recognition for

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports.

How do you ensure that you won’t be ostracized, denounced, or fired if you are a media celebrity, captain of industry, or high public official? For some, sexist banter is certainly no problem. Stand-up comedian Bill Maher called Sarah Palin a c–t and a tw-t, but suffered no ill consequences. David Letterman joked on air that Sarah Palin’s 14-year-old daughter had had sex with Alex Rodriguez during a New York Yankees game. There was no downside to that either. President Obama tosses around “sweetie” as he wishes. No problem with that. No one believes Barack could be condescending to women.
