This! NULLIFY THE VOTE COUNT FROM HART INTERCIVIC VOTING MACHINES TIED TO "ROMNEY BUNDLERS"/DISQUALIFY ROMNEY'S http://signon.org/s/wnafNFI think that is why Willard said at the Al smith dinner "We are in our last days of his term" which got NO laughs...b/c they think they are going to steal the election like before.
Brain washing? Stockholm Syndrome? The educational system? Chemicals in the water? Too many prescription meds (being mixed)?How else to explain:- the middle age white small business owner who is struggling to survive and raise a family - who supports Mitt Romney- the retired white woman who saw her retirement income tank, her health care bills go through the roof, and her reliance upon SS and Medicare/Medicade who supports Mitt Romney- the young Wiccan mom working full time in the health care field, to care for a house-full of kids - who supports Mitt Romney. - the retired Vietnam vet native man who supports Mitt Romney.These are people I personally know. It just mystifies me.
A woman I know: Her husband is self-employed and they rely mostly on her salary, which is, of course, earned at a public library. Her adult son is on SSI/disability and by the time her tween daughter graduates, she will have had enough years of service to retire. She has numerous medical issues, both physical and mental. All of the above, and she supports Romney. On the other hand, there is also my grandfather- grew up in Indiana in the 30s, served in WWII, retired from GM (was in management), has accumulated a fair amount of wealth, long-time Republican- and in 2008, he voted for Obama!
Thank goodness for people like your grandfather!
I keep reading about how both candidates are neck and neck in the polls, and I wonder how that could *possibly* be? On the one hand, you have...Mitt. Contest over. Nobody with any shred of self-preservation would ever vote for him.
Electoral college. If you take the tossups and add the way they're leaning and then give the tie (Virginia) to Rmoney, it's still Obama 277 and Rmoney 269. So Rmoney needs to turn a big state. Like Pennsylvania. That's why the voter registration fraud and the voter I.D. suppression laws are so important to the right.
A crazy media world that can't stay on one issue long enough for facts to sink in.Try out Milton Bass's column in today's Berkshire Eagle about Romney as governor. He was mediocre -- and, as has been stated, no one in Mass. is going to vote to make him president. He was so bad that, after four Republican governors in a row, we now proudly have Deval Patrick in his second Democratic term. Who could vote for someone who refuses to release his tax returns, even though his father released twelve years' of his own? Who could vote for a man who stashes his cash in off-shore accounts?Who could vote for a man who won't give specifics for most of his agenda?Ignorant voters, topped off with a strong ration of racism. If President Obama were white, (which he is, as much as he's black), there would be no contest.
Additionally so many people feeling the economic pinch are lured by fake promises of prosperity. Like buying a lottery ticket, setting logic aside, just hoping for that life will change.
"Or perhaps, a combination of all three?" Yup.
Easy, scare old white people. Tell them that the their world as they know it is ending and only Romney knows what they are going through and how to fix it.Enter Faux News.........
As a sixty-something "white" woman who proudly supports our Peesident, I take exception to that characterization. Don't fall into the trap of labelling people by age , gender or ethnic heritage.
I am an old white woman who knows Romney wants to put me out on an ice flow. Most women, actually. No way would I ever vote for him.
I wish I could come up with an answer. But I'm stumped. I just don't get it, either.Especially the people who say Obama didn't deliver the change they voted for last time, so they're voting for Romney - AKA the second coming of George W. Bush, the status quo they claim to have previously voted against.
Like many things in life, there is no easy answer. It isn't simple. It isn't any one thing. It is many little things combined. So I'd say, a little bit of all of the above, some more than others, but they all add up. Let's hope they don't add up to enough electoral votes. Willard still has two weeks to demonstrate that his Romnesia is NOT cureable, nor are his chronic lies. I think tomorrow's debate will be significant. I think Obama will be bringing his "A+" game and I think Rmoney is peeing his pants prepping today. I think tomorrow Ol' Willard will show the world how much of a loud mouth lying BULLY he can be. It will not go well for him.
If Mitt is a bully On-Stage in FRONT of America, HOW will he be behind closed doors????
We saw how he is behind closed doors. Remember his 47% gaffe?
All three. And many Americans (sadly) are low information voters anyway. They work hard, come home and deal with family life and try to have a little fun. They have no real idea about the candidates because they think it would take time they don't have. Or they go to their local newspaper to get their information or horrifically--- FOX. Disaster.The idea that anyone judges the next president because of debate performances proves the point.
My local newspaper is Fox Lite. I write letters almost daily pleading with them to fact check instead of repeating the lies of Mitt and Preibus, and the rest of the GOP. They want us to vote for Snyder's Emergency Manager takes over the city law. That's where the Governor appoints a crony to go in, disband the elected city officials, disband and take over the school district (he can even force them to merge with another district, throw any contracts into the trash, and fire whomever he pleases. Yeah, that sounds American.
All of the above.Plus he's aided by the msm who lets most of his shit slide. Disgusting!
Yes, Romney is a liar and has been caught lying many times. But to answer the question on whether or not Romney can win: Some people consider the lying to be less important than the financial collapse of the entire country. And so, in the final two or three weeks before the election the polls are tightening. Among likely voters it's now a tie or Romney is up slightly. The polls will move again after the final debate and looking at how the polls have bounced so far after all the debates, my guess is that Obama is in deep trouble.So do I care? Well yes, because momentum for the cons in the US could spill over to Canada. But on the other hand, if Americans were so stupid as to elect Bush2 and Romney is even close to Obama, then perhaps the American people are so stupid that they need a good hard lesson taught to them. So maybe one more go around with a Bush2 imposter would be best. Then maybe some people will start to get it. I predict that Romney is going to win this thing and it's not really going to be all that close.luv from Canada.
I have been thinking this for some time. But---will the people ever be able to do anything about it once the theocratic oligarchy is in power and owns the SCOTUS? I am so afraid for my grandsons because I believe these neocon warhawks are just waiting to start a war in the Middle East and our prime minister now will not keep us out as our previous one did. I have friends that came back from a vacation to the south of the States vowing never to go again because of the hate and racism towards President Obama. One, a PHD, has been predicting am armed revolution will happen there soon. Scary stuff.It puzzles me that Darrell Issa put the CIA and the Libyans who are helping the USA in mortal danger and he has not been arrested or deprived of his position in the security committee for such dangerous behavior.Another Canadian
First off, Canada, we did not elect Bush. The SC GAVE him 2000, and the genuuses at Diebold gave him Ohio and 2004, when Kerry had the edge. So we will not be cheated again.
I went to the LDS website yesterday and prominently displayed is a video "Daughters of God" talking about "strong" Mormon women and showing them in various scenarios. It looks like a campaign ad--but, of course, isn't called one. How convenient for Mitt and Annie in their quest for the WH.
Isn't called one and is paid for with tax deductible $$$. All those "I am a Mormon and I am normal" ads that have been running for the last 4 years are also Romney adds.
All three, plus the media needs a horse race. And Fox needs to hate, so they build up the GOP candidates no matter how stupid (Akin) or how incompetent (R&R) they may be. I suspect that this is not nearly as close as they are hoping, and that we are in for a landslide of Democratic winners.
I don't think it's as close as they say either. And if this is their way of TRYING to make it seem close so Robme can steal the election.....I hope there will be major riots in the streets this time. I will be there. Fool me once...
Here's a thought. Vague, but possible. The GOP, acting as a potential Nazi party, knows the administration of GWB has been a disaster, and more or less intentionally, plots to lose the 2008 election. They run a discredited, barely capable John McCain, with a sexy dingbat with so much garbage on her plate that a victory is impossible. The guy who wins, as much white as he black, delights the country with his talent, courage, grace and erudtion. The GOP is determined to reduce him to ridicule by negating all or most all of his ambitious attempts to restore the middle class. In the next election, the GOP runs the guy who lost to the guy who won. I don't know why this happened, but you have to look at the other candidates: Herman Cain? Michelle Bachmann? Preposterous, hopeless, impossible to imagine. Now, you have running for President of the United States, a Mormon liar, whose family owns the voting machines, and who is backed by the Koch brothers and Adelson, the first who want carte blanche over the environment of the planet, and the second who wants a nuclear war with Iran. Who has not yet Googled the Mormon's White Horse Prophecy? It's the Nazis all over again. Masters of the Universe.
It's definitely a combination of the three, but I think the racial component is undeniable. Some people who don't even consider themselves racist, simply CANNOT accept the fact that our president is a black man who speaks with authority and demands respect. I think it scares older people to death!At this point, I'm losing interest. If the American public is stupid and ignorant enough to elect this man, then frankly, we get what we deserve. That this race is even close is PATHETIC and speaks volumes about our country and her citizens. It's shameful.
I agree, but I am going to vote and hopefully the Obama supporters sitting on the sidelines will go as well. Let Romney think he's close and then let's shut the door in his face!!! VOTE OBAMA/BIDEN!
He has a chance to win the election because he is running against a black man. Doesn't matter that he is an unqualified, draft dodging, lying peckerhead and it doesn't matter that his opponent is brilliant, eminently qualified and has accomplished and overcome more than most Presidents have ever had to deal with. He is BLAAACCK and so are his wife and kids. AAAGGGHHHH!!!
President Obama is half white too! Why don't the 'racist' folks direct their attention toward that? Idiots!OBAMA/BIDEN 2012
At 2:46~agreed! (but he did marry a black woman!! Horror of horrors!Although, if his wife were white, they would still be hated for being "inter ~ racial").He literally could.not."win" with these people.
Just to calm everyone's mind this is the latest I found on the state of the race:Obama: +5.7Obama 47.9% | Romney 42.2%•Obama has opened up a 6-point lead over Romney in our latest poll, his largest lead yet. •Some 8.1% of those polled said they were “not sure” whom they would vote for, also the largest percentage yet. •Obama’s lead seemed to build after the second debate, which many mainstream media pundits believe Obama won. •Self-described “moderates” now prefer Obama over Romney by 22 points, the second largest margin since we began polling. •Obama holds a hefty 35-point lead among urban dwellers, and a comfortable 5-point lead in the suburbs.http://news.investors.com/special-report/508415-ibdtipp-poll.aspx#ixzz29xHQxIxGMessage from Obama campaign: We're winning Ohio.

Thanks, but I will worry until it's over
Thank you for this - I'm completely mystified how seemingly normal people would fall for Mitten's crap.T
Just read an article that said many polls are overlooking the Latino vote because the polls are only polling the English speaking--which leaves out many who vote but don't speak English.I think there are alot of people in cahoots on these polls. They need the clicks and tv ratings, so they are pushing the horserace stuff.
My wife and I voted for Obama today...
My husband and I voted by absentee ballot last week - a straight Democratic ticket. If the post office screws up and sends us the ballots back instead of sending them to the City Clerk, we'll have lots of time to walk them to the City Clerk. Twice in the past seven years the ballots have come back to us because our address is on the reverse side of the envelope - not the smartest form to use but, hey, I didn't design it. This is traditional Republican territory where I live! Fortunately we were able to get the ballots to City Hall in time but that should never happen.
I have thought about this as well and I wonder if the so-called "enthusiasm gap" has anything to do with it. In short, could it be that Republican voters are more eager to respond to polls than their Democratic counterparts? If so, the results of the polls showing Romney in the lead ought to be taken as shallow comfort by the R's given the closeness of the race. Put another way, it would seem that what small portion of Democrats are polled, comprise just the proverbial tip of the iceberg where their numbers are concerned.I for one have constantly struggled with the idea that Romney's popularity could even be anywhere near 40 percent. I just does not seem plausible where reality is concerned, lest he be buoyed by racial and religious surface tension, in which case, he United States is no further along (and perhaps beneath) its worst adversary, which is quickly becoming its own self.
I think it is because there are certain voters who absolutely refuse to believe anything except what comes from the Right Wing. When my friends think that Candy Crowley "helped" Obama in last week's debate when they saw the debate with their own eyes, then there is little hope to change their minds. It is the same mindset that allowed certain Germans to ignore the rounding up of Jews and those who spoke out against their government. (I know; I hate the Hitler references too, but this one is valid. How else do you explain people voting against their own best interests?) How else do you explain that the man who saved the country from a depression; saved the auto industry; killed Bin Laden; has decimated the Al Qaeda and signed the Lilly Ledbetter Act is fighting for his political life against a known liar?
He's a BLACK man. Pure and simple.
Dont forget ACA and credit card reforms
President Barack Obama was sharing a pulpit one day with a conservative Christian leader when a revealing exchange took place. Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback, a conservative Christian who has taken public stands against abortion and same-sex marriage, had joined Obama for an AIDS summit. They were speaking before a conservative megachurch filled with white evangelicals. When Brownback rose to speak, he joked that he had joined Obama earlier at an NAACP meeting where Obama was treated like Elvis and he was virtually ignored. Turning to Obama, a smiling Brownback said, “Welcome to my house!” The audience exploded with laughter and applause. Obama rose, walked before the congregation and then declared: “There is one thing I have to say, Sam. This is my house, too. This is God’s house.” Historians may remember Obama as the nation’s first black president, but he’s also a religious pioneer. He’s not only changed people’s perception of who can be president, some scholars and pastors say, but he’s also expanding the definition of who can be a Christian by challenging the religious right’s domination of the national stage.http://religion.blogs.cnn.com/2012/10/21/to-some-obama-is-the-wrong-kind-of-christian/?hpt=hp_c1
A frightening thing when the polls are this close is the voter suppression (just talk of ID keeps voters away, even if it is not required in your state). But scariest of all is just who owns and is in charge of the voting machines:http://www.dailykos.com/story/2012/10/16/1145225/-New-owners-of-voting-m...
Easy. Romney can't steal the election (with Rove's able help) unless the election looks close. Flipping votes only works in the contestants appear to be only a couple of percentage points apart. If they are more than 5 points apart in the polls, that 10 point shift on election day will be more than suspicious.The actual vote-flipping? Tagg Romney's company OWNS the voting machines in Ohio. They are both invested in the company that owns the tabulation software in another handful of swing states.If disenfranchisement doesn't work, they can always change the actual vote later... as long as the election APPEARS close in the polls.
... and that, Hawk's Daughter, is continuing to give me sleepless nights, and nightmares when I do head off to dreamland... Ing
It's Obama 277 to Rmoney 269 in the electoral college. All they have to do is flip one of the toss up states. They'd only need 9 votes. They could do it by flipping either Colorado or Wisconsin. Or they could do it with BOTH Nevada and Iowa.Ohio is their best bet. Obama is only ahead a little over 2% there.

A Booming Stock Market Under ObamaNew York Times: "Through Friday, since Mr. Obama's inauguration -- his first 1,368 days in office -- the Dow Jones industrial average has gained 67.9 percent. That's an extremely strong performance -- the fifth best for an equivalent period among all American presidents since 1900." http://www.nytimes.com/2012/10/21/your-money/wall-st-may-not-cheer-but-obamas-been-good-for-stocks.html?nl=todaysheadlines&emc=edit_th_20121021&_r=1&
Today, in Virginia, I heard an ad in which a citizen of FL claimed he lost 90% of his retirement or savings since Obama became president. He said he only had 10% of his money left. I thought WTF for my 401k's and investments which evaporated average 50% when the economy tanked returned plus since Obama was president.I believe the lies are the most influential to manipulate people to vote against Obama inciting fear..
“How does Romney have a chance to win the election when everyone in the world knows he’s a liar?”He doesn’t.The fat cats wouldn’t be making millions in ad revenue if there wasn’t a “tight race”, so they create one. “Wag The Dog”Take a friend with you to vote for Obama!
I think that people in general do not study situations. They are more self centered now and are not educated OR do not have time to study (working one or several jobs to hard).That they can and will vote against their own future is a scary situation. When people are uneducated the vote becomes emotional with no fact checking.So I say vote Obama/Biden White House and Congress and then work to get our "Village" working functionally again.
All of the above Gryphen...with some cross burning thrown in for good measure!Meh is a piss poor person and a piss poor candidate...those who don't see that...will get pissed on.
... as will the rest of us, should R@R win.Don't forget that one, Gina.
As will the rest of us if they cheat.
Sally and ftd...I try not to think of that...my pressure can't take the thought...so I am going through my email contacts and FB and asking folks if they are registered and to VOTE dammit!I sent my daughter her absentee ballot certified mail of course yesterday(put the stamps on the envelope and everything!)She's in college and she will be voting for the President for the first time...4 years ago she hadn't turned 18 in time to vote for him...her and her college buddies are ALL excited about voting for President Obama!
I don't know about every Mitt voter, but I know plenty of idiots who got wrapped up in the racist frenzy right after President Obama was elected. They posted endless, angry vitriol on Facebook at the time. They are so invested in Obama hate and cannot ever admit they might be wrong, even if voting for Mitt is against their own interests. That is why half the made-in-China crap for sale on Mittens' website is not pro-Mitt and is instead anti-Obama. Mitt's greatest nightmare is that these people will stop hating our President. At that point, they will realize Mitt actually sucks and won't bother to vote at all.
I can't explain it - but it scares the heck out of me that so many Americans are this consumed by racism and hateefulness, and/or misinformed or uneducated that they are willing to sell their soul and vote against their own best interest to vote for this soulless cruel robot of a man. I truly try every single hour of every single day to hold on to the positive thought that President Obama will be re-elected. I can't even imagine what will happen to our country if he isn't reelected.
I think the best example of how well the Fox spewed propaganda is working, is this:Ask any 7-11 clerk if he agrees that things would be better if the very rich simply paid a FAIR SHARE of taxes.His wide-eyed screaming response will make you step back: "You're just JEALOUS of anyone SUCCESSFUL, and those who are JOB CREATORS!"Coming from a person who SHOULD be the very first one to promote the idea of a rich guy paying at least what he himself pays, it is very scary to witness this.As it comes out in the same word order as you can YouTube Sean Hannity saying, there is NO DOUBT where the hypnotic spell on this poor slob, came from.
We heard the same nonsense from the local carpenter who did work for us this spring. All about how hard the millionaires work! And how much they give to charity! This is from someone who had a really hard time 2008 and 2009 when there was little home building and renovation being done. There are always people who consistently vote against their own best interests. The Republicans have convinced them that they should vote for their betters and then they can aspire to be like them. Laughing all the way.Obama/Biden/Democratic Congress 2012Beaglemom
My 50 year old sister is the same way. She works at a small consuklting firm, and does mostly travel bookings. She thinks Obama already ruined America (by lowering her taxes, no doubt.) She went on some FB rant at me (yes, she will never actually talk to me or even email, because she loves an audience) about how hard-working the rich are and how they 'earned' every penny. Yet she insists she thinks for herself. Right, hon, whatever your far right websites tell you is what you think.
When Romney repeated that Obama wants you (the people) to belive you are stuck in your station in life, that you can't improve your life I felt fury. Obama has consistently stated the opposite!It has been a pile of BS from Romney campaign, Prosperity etc. projecting Obama wants people poor to not working.A friend of mine clings to that tactic that Obama wants the rich to pay for others so they can sit on their ass mooching. I can't wait to say "I told you so" to her. She also adored Palin 2 years before decing she was "evil". My friend is gullible and does not fact check.
Largest newspaper in Ohio endorses Obama!http://www.democraticunderground.com/1251159209
Mitt Romney makes me very nervous. The list on the photo makes me very depressed...Bush served two terms (stolen). In America, anything could happen.
The same way Bush beat Gore, sleazy tactics at the polls.
OT Gryphen, but word on the street is that tomorrow morning a women ( who is a former maid of the Romneys) will be coming forward with information about their "interactions".
Won't matter. They'll discredit her. She'll have an agenda to "get back" at him. She's a registered democrat. Or she's illegal. Or she had some other history. It will be just like Schwarzenegger. Willard will be teflon and they'll dump all over this woman. And Rmoney's supporters will stick their fingers in their ears and sing LA LA LA LA LA.
Re: Anon @ 11:59--This is the third time today that I've heard about a "personally embarrassing" Romney story coming out sometime on Monday...fingers crossed, and I hope that whomever is coming forward is doing it from a protected bunker somewhere.On another note, the Tagg-Hart Intercivic voting machine story is now trending HOT on Forbes. It's an OpEd piece, and the writer is reporting it with a wink and a nudge, but take a read and send a tweet if you're inclined. So far nothing has turned up on the mainstream media or HuffBlow (big surprise). IT NEEDS WIDE PLAY!http://www.forbes.com/sites/rickungar/2012/10/20/romney-family-investment-ties-to-voting-machine-company-that-could-decide-the-election-causes-concern/
The answer was on your blogroll this morning:http://www.dailykos.com/story/2012/10/21/1147047/-Get-the-transcript-Mitt-Romney-and-the-Republican-Party-s-antipathy-toward-nbsp-reality?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+
The media is a major driving force in election campaigns. Positive or negative propaganda will affect each candidate but it can also work against them. If you're given positive handling by the media and you come off as a liar, well I say your chances are slim. Overall, it's how the candidates are portrayed in the public eye. Whether the information passed on is skewed or flattering, it's up to the public to disseminate if what is presented is truthful or dishonest.
If someone can figure this out, please let me know.Recently, I saw on FB my gay sister-in-law "like" Mitt, and she hasn't worked in 10 years. Started off as disablity, not sure what it became. I was convinced it was a mistake, I called her. NOT a mistake, she doesn't see where the President has done anythingfor our economy. I started listing off items, I could tell she had closed me out & she mentioned his birth certificate!! I accused her of watching Fox, she denied it. I closed the conversation with "I hope you enjoy your recent marriage because Mitt will null & void it"I went back to her fb page, she may not watch Fox, but she likes all the far right wing fb pagesCall me speechless
People vote with their emotions, not their logical minds. Never neglect to say "told you so" when the Republicans pass anything that harms your sister. You might consider unfriending her if there's anything on your facebook that she'll take exception to. And don't go to her page any more. It will just upset you.
Pretty much everyone agrees that our president had a less than stellar performance at the first debate. Key word: "performance". I listened to it on the radio and I heard him prevail - to a limited degree - on substance despite the sub-optimal delivery. Simultaneously, Romney cynically vomited up whatever he had to say to appeal to weak-minded low-information voters despite much of it being 180 degrees opposite of what he was saying during his "severe conservative" primary campaign.(It should not go unremarked upon that Mittens possesses the extremely impressive discipline to completely expunge from his smoove delivery that hideously annoying lip-smack and awkward chuckling. Good job, asshole!)How any of this translates into a reversal of the president's likely election prospects according to polls the day before the debate can only be explained in one word: "Obama is the ni**er in the White House".Sorry. Eight words.
Why do so many have this racist slant against President Obama when is actually half white! I've never understood it!I personally love the guy!OBAMA/BIDEN 2012
Racists have never cared about the amount of color you have in your heritage. You're still black. They even had cutesy names for it. To them Obama is a Mulatto; half white and half black. If you have one black grandparent, you are a Quadroon. If you are 1/8th black, you're an octaroon. But you're still Black. Even if you look white, you're black. I think this was what the musical Showboat was all about. www.mixedfolks.com/names.htmSo basically, for these folks it doesn't matter if Obama is half white. As long as he has a drop of African blood, he's black. And I'm sure those that feel this way also feel he is inferior to them and doesn't deserve to be in the White House. (As we saw on that t-shirt at the Rmoney rally.)
Come on GryphenRacism. all the other shit is just smoke and mirrors. The face of racism in America is alive and well and brought to us courtesy of Sara Palin who stirred the sleeping beast with a sharp stick. May she burn in hell and be tried for treason and sedition
Yes..may Sarah Palin burn in hell. And all her so-called followers.
What truly scares me is Romney's endless drive to gain the title of President of the United States. He has more money than a few small countries. Why accept a paltry 450k? Why embrace the headaches, the accelerated aging, problems of running a nation. Why put up with the loss of money (he put up 35mil of his own money in his first attempt, 2008), being portrayed as a cold calculating liar, high ranking member of a cult religion and all the negative press. Is this worth it? Is it worth going through this twice?? He's obviously unqualified as he's changed his position and flip-flopped on a multitude of issues numerous times. This just shows he'll do and say anything to appease voters. It shows a compromise of integrity and ultimately shines a spotlight on his dishonesty. Is he just exhibiting the disease all men with wealth suffer -that the next goal is something money can't but he can try to buy --power?
Great comment! And why too would Ann Romney, suffering with MS, want to put herself through the stresses of First Lady, with the traveling, the expectations and tight scheduling, and her husband being away, and not being able to curl up with her in bed and tell her it's OK. I could never understand Elizabeth Edwards either, willing to undergo all that while she was diagnosed with bone cancer. Is achieving power so important to these men that they sacrifice their sick spouses to the endless stress? That's not honorable for the 'priest of the home' and Mitt Romney doesn't set a good example of a Mormon Bishop.
Mitt Romney is the Executioner Who is Leading His Supporters to the Gallows http://www.politicususa.com/mitt-romney-executioner-leading-supporters-gallows.htmlhttp://www.politicususa.com/obama-camp-romney-term-governor-raise-debt-ruin-jobs.html
First, I don't think the election is as close as the MSM makes it out to be. I call it the "world series syndrome." How many times has the world series finished in 4 or 5 games? The MSM likes a close race for the ad revenue, ratings and clicks. That said, my second suspicion is racism. There are so very many people who just cannot get past the fact that President Obama has darker skin than they do. Of course, ignorance and underinformed people are to blame as well. How many times have we all tried to engage people who don't even have a rudimentary grasp on the issues? If one does not know who their representative is, who their senators are, who their vice president is and who their secretary of state is they should not be able to vote. An ignorant vote is worse than no vote at all. It's our RESPONSIBILITY AND DUTY as citizens to keep abreast of our local, state and national politics. No excuses. Yeah, Gryph, I share your frustration on these issues. Mitt the twit should be a completely unviable joke of a candidate at this point.

Republicans Freaking Out Over Gloria Allred’s Rumored “October Surprise” Though She Won’t Confirm Or Denyhttp://themoderatevoice.com/164813/republicans-freaking-out-over-gloria-allreds-rumored-october-surprise-though-she-wont-comment/
Don't hate player, hate the game. Truly goodhearted, well meaning people have had their heads filled will all sorts of hatemongering/ fearmongering, much of it racial. Just think about your grandparents, your uncles aunts and cousins. Many would give you the shirt off their back. But mention politics in general or Obama in specific and they become frothing freaks. I choose (for the most part) choose to direct my disgust at those who take advantage of them. The Palins being exhibit A.
The graphic forgot two. Voter I.D suppression laws. Voter registration fraud committed by GOP contractors.
Not only Americans, but the world is depending on informed Americans to keep a President Obama in a second term. You guys are like the O-be-wan-Kenobe's (you are our only hope). It's scary to hear so many news stories about possible voting fraud. If this proved true and if Mitt Romney was that desperate to win a presidency, what would a cheating man do after he stole the White House? It is a scary proposition. We see a President Obama who acts soundly, rationally, sane, and who addresses things accurately, and anything he says can be verified always. He doesn't lie. He's proven to be trustworthy. Not everything has been accomplished, but rational people know what he's been up against these past 4 years. Ann and Mitt Romney believe people should just trust them because. They must be so delusional that they think they have a shot at the Presidency without proving their worth. Speaking falsehoods doesn't prove their worth.Any man who lies, and contradicts himself so much like Romney does, on a daily basis, is not a man that should be the leader of one of the most powerful nations on earth. People have become complacent and could never believe that their conservative leaders would ever have ulterior motives or not have their best interests at heart. But, it's that complacency that a dangerous man or woman could take advantage of, pulling the rug right out from people after he was voted in. If a man can comfortably lie before an election, imagine what he would be capable of once in power. Cannot say how relieved we will all be when this election is over and the rational truthful man is still in.
A combination of all three.
As has been said so many times, the very idea that at this late date there are those who are unsure as to whom to vote for, just points up the fact of how uninformed and vacuous a large segment of the electorate is. If Romney were to win, it would be an "Idiocracy* Moment".* - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Idiocracy
Don't feed the trolls! It just goes directly to their thighs.
