        The campaign is doing their final budget planning tomorrow, I believe, so if you’re going to donate – do it today so they can factor that into their plans!

    Just back from lunch and walking across the University of Iowa campus, past the Students For Romney table. For some reason they were really irking me today, as they danced around waving at cars and cheering loudly whenever one of them honked. I was annoyed that these students are treating this election like some football game – “our” guy vs “the other”. Of course, this is a very Democratic community and we went 70% for PBO in 2008, so I know they have little chance of really converting anyone. They certainly didn’t try to talk to me, a middle-aged female! πŸ˜‰ I just want them to understand why this election is so important. And I just want it to be OVER. 4 more days for 4 more years!

  7. November 2, 2012 at 2:18 pm

    All my friends in Canada wish they could come down here and vote for PBO. A future with Willard should never happen!

      Don’t let this happen America! Your neighbours to the North are counting on you!

      Saying that, I am very confident that the majority of Americans understand who they need to have in the Whitehouse.

      GOOO USA!!!

      My husband and I are both dual citizens. Our votes for PBO went into the mail a couple of weeks ago. I’ve talked to lots of people about the election and every one of them loves President Obama. (They say theings like “PLEASE tell me there’s no chance of that Romney person actually winning.” I comfort them with the sure and certain knowledge that PBO will be back for 4 more years.)

    Hello TOD – for all those who argue that Gov. Romney has a better chance “to get the big things done”, let’s remember just what those “big things” are: the total destruction of America’s middle class, denying health care to millions of Americans, condemning seniors to uncertainty and predictable hardship, doubling down on climate change denial and giving preferential treatment to Big Oil, unraveling all regulations protecting our environment and reigning in the excesses of Wall Street, taking women back more than 50 years, etc. Are those the “big things” that the voters want?

      Notice that PBO and Big Dog are losing their voices – but Willard isn’t? That’s because he’s not doing SHIT. His crowds are small so he doesn’t need to speak in a loud voice. And he is not doing half as many rallies as the DEMS.

        I have to add a personal story to this….My grandfather always held his vote sacred…so much so, that when it was time to vote he would hound my very meek and mild grandmother(who never even got her drivers license) with “who are you voting for, because if you don’t vote for who I am voting for then you cancel my vote.” He would constantly hound her prior to election day about this, and she would simply say that it was her vote to make, and she wasn’t sure who she would decide on.
        With that we would ask her…Grandma, so who did you vote for to which she always replied, “its my personal choice and I’m not going to say” and she always said this with a big smile on her face. It was the one thing that she felt as a woman that nobody was going to control. It was her right, and she had the right to privacy when she went into that voting booth with who she chose.
        It sent my grandfather up the wall at every election time. LOL

            A drunk that smelled like a brewery got on a bus one day. He sat down next to a priest. The drunk’s shirt was stained, his face was full of bright red lipstick and he had a half-empty bottle of wine sticking out of his pocket. He opened his newspaper and started reading. A couple minutes later, he asked the priest, “Father, what causes arthritis?”

            “Mister, it’s caused by loose living, being with cheap, wicked women, too much alcohol, and contempt for your fellow man,” the priest replied.

            “Imagine that,” the drunk muttered. He returned to reading his paper.

            The priest, thinking about what he had said, turned to the man and apologized: “I’m sorry, I didn’t mean to come on so strong. How long have you had arthritis?”

            “I don’t have arthritis, Father,” the drunk said, “but I just read in the paper that the Pope does.”

      I am predicting 348 EVs and 52% of the popular votes for our Great President. There is no doubt in my mind that voters in the eastern states, severely impacted by the storm, will not turn out in record numbers. If this occurs, the votes for the President will go down drastically compared to 2008 elections.

      Here is what I am looking forward to on Nov. 6th: By 8:30-9:00 PM EST, the media would have called DC, MD, NC, VA and FL, along with all of New England states (MA, ME, NH, VT, CT), and the Mid Atlantic states (NY, NJ, DE, PA) for President Obama. The next call will be about 9:30-10:00 PM EST when the Mid-Western states of OH, WI MI, IL, IA, and MN, (and NE’s 2) will all be called for the President. By 10:30-11:00 PM EST, CO and NM will be called for the President. Finally, at 11:30PM EST, (8:30 PM PST) the Western states of NV, WA, OR and my CA will all be called for the President. For us in the west we will have time to celebrate and still go to bed at a decent hour in order to be able to go work the next day. Luckily for me, I have a day off for Wed. the 7th. I don’t know how the people in the East and the Mid-West will handle this when they have to wait on us in the West to deliver victory for the President. There is no way I would be able to go to work if I had to wait until mid-night to know that our beloved President had been re-elected. It’s usually after the announcement of the Presidential winner that the real crazy celebration begins.

      Any way, It’s this scenario of how I think the votes will unfold that forms the basis of my prediction that President Obama will win 348 Electoral Votes. As for the popular vote, It’s so had to predict given the devastation that Sandy has caused in predominantly Democratic strongholds in North Eastern and Mid-Atlantic states. I still think the President will win the majority of the popular votes. Other than Texas, Romney is not slated to win any other state with a large population. Contrary to the manipulated polls, I think the President will win Florida , North Carolina and Virginia. Add that to the wins in CA, NY, PA, IL, OH, MI, NJ, MA, WI, MD, MN, CT, IA, etc. I just don’t see how Romney can win the popular vote. Remember Al Gore won big in CA, NY, IL, PA, NJ, though he lost OH, FL, VA and NC.

    aloha tods
    anybody still up?
    sam wang of pec says the liklihood of robmey winning the popular vote is 6%, or odds of 16 to 1 against it. also:

    ‘President Obama is peeling away. As you can see from the electoral vote (EV) estimator, he is the candidate with the momentum, not Romney. In terms of EV or the Meta-margin, he’s made up just about half the ground he ceded to Romney after Debate #1. And the indicators are still headed straight up.’

    there’s a nice chart showing the ‘straight up’ trend line. also, sam says:

    ‘A few days ago, the word was that Team Romney was buying ads in Minnesota and Pennsylvania. If he wins either of those states I will eat a bug. Ohio…a really big bug. And yes, I will post a photo.’

    bottom line prediction: obama 319 ev, robmey 219 ev.

    (sorry–linky not cooperating)

        I slept a bit, though my eyes are feeling quite heavy from lack of sleep, I’m sure. I suspect I’ll be going back to bed shortly in a darkened room (can’t sleep in daylight normally). We’ll see.

        Sliding through the last thread, I spot a lot of potential-looking goodies BUT can’t get to watch or read because the thread is still dancing around like crazy. Hope it settles down later in the day.

        Chips Chica is on my mind of course, but I’m not as worried as the very first time she was unavoidably delayed. I was all for sending out the Canadian RCMP because not knowing gave rise to all sorts of dangerous scenarios. This time, I’m trusting that all is well and that maybe OUR energizer bunny just needed to SLEEP for a good long stretch to rejuvenate her body, mind, spirit, AND set her up for the grueling days ahead.

            Don’t worry, Pamela, a certain person just likes to pick on me, by deliberately misunderestimating my comments. πŸ˜‰ It’s how he shows his love, like the little boy in early school who pulls your braid because he likes you. [Now that scenario is a fallacy perpetuated by writers IMO. No little boys pulled MY braids – not that I had any pull-able braids, come to think of it – or bothered me at all. And, no guys, it couldn’t have been because I was unlovable even then, because I would have remembered. πŸ˜‰ ;)]
