    If folks are not on Twitter now, you should be. The situation in Miami-Dade re: early voting is a full-fledged fiasco complete with folks having their cars towed while they try to vote… This was intentionally done by the GOP. They will face the consequences. Voter suppression will not stand.

    …..ensure a fair, transparent and efficient voting process in which all Ohioans, and voters across the nation, can be confident.


    As Secretary of State, Husted serves as Ohio’s chief elections officer. His highest priority is to collaborate with local elections boards to improve the overall administration of elections. As Ohio again looks to be the heart of it all in the 2012 Presidential Election, Secretary Husted wants to ensure a fair, transparent and efficient voting process in which all Ohioans, and voters across the nation, can be confident.

    Hi…. mostly lurking Canadian here. Remember the big scandal about the photoshopped images of a Romney crowd a few days back? It made me scan another shot– 360 degree panoramic shot– and found, if not photoshop, a glitch in it that suggest a chunk more people than should be there. Look to the left of the RR sign in the wheel spoke sections. there are two spokes that look a whoooole lot like each other, a bit in the floor crowd, too. You can notice a glitch in the support beams above, too. Deliberate or tech error– you decide.

      Wouldn’t surprise me in the least. Romney is nothing but a liar. Not surprising that he has to photoshop his rally to make it seem that more people like him than actually do.

      The only rally that counts now is the one on Tuesday night after President Obama whoops his behind.

    Can anyone tell me why Romney and the stooges are on CSPAN ALL day???

    • 40 hopefruit2
      November 4, 2012 at 3:53 pm

      We’ve been asking the same damn question on Twitter. I’ve been noticing CSPAN’s antics for some time now. From their fake-ass RNC staffers posing as ordinary callers to their nonstop airing of Romney’s boring rallies, to their shitty camera antics during the DNC convention….

      I’m on to CSPAN and they can ALL GO TO HELL. All their hours spent airing Romney’s propaganda is just exposing more of his bullshyte to the world and convincing people how UNFIT he is for any office, let alone the Presidency!!!

        November 4, 2012 at 4:20 pm

        And they had Biden’s rally on. Not defending C-Span, but they do show both each day.

        They have shown VP Joe’s and Michelle’s rally as well. Looking at the schedule it’s pretty balanced. There will not be a station like FOX who caters to Democrats as FOX does to Republicans. I’m watch such a station anyway. I can accept there are different views by decent people. It’s the RWNJs that make it bad for the rest of them. Maybe after PBO gets re-elected the sane ones will dump the teabutts who bring their party down.

    You see Giuliani out there fighting for a man who he said had no core, who had no principal, no character. I guess that means Giuliani is the same as the guy he is fighting. We know Newt call Mitt a liar, we know Newt is a liar too.

      And when they are booked on shows….No reporter asks them about their past statements.

      But a Dem is asked repeatedly, no matter how long. Every story about Clinton is with the story on how he and pres Obama are Not friends. Nothing like that is ever said of Romney and McCain, Giuliani, Newt, etc.

      Rudy is the guy who announced that he was leaving his wife at a press conference. He didn’t manage to tell his wife first. She heard about it from reporters. That’s when he showed his true colors. (He was a federal prosecutor before running for mayor and had a great record of going after mobsters, corrupt politicians, etc. Then he became mayor and started to believe his own publicity.)

    PEW that had pres Obama underwater weeks ago, but today it is pres Obama 50% and Romney 47% nationally. 13% Women Gap. They had that tied weeks ago. Gallup had the race now at 48%…..Yet Gender gap is 16 with women and 10 % with advantage men? RV pres Obama is 50/51 to Romney’s in the mid 40s. How again are the likely votes tied in the swing state at 48%?

    Yep…..Vote. Vote.

    After the President and VP win on Tuesday, i truly would love it if he is able to take up the matter of voting rules in national elections! I know that each state is in control of their owm elections, but it is evident that politics is hampering the ability to have a even, fair election. Surely at least the national elections can be made more uniform across the country.

    Obama/Biden TUESDAY!!

    • 77 Left-Indie
      November 4, 2012 at 4:43 pm

      Exactly my sentiment. Uniform methods for national office elections. And Vote day off, too. Dems ought to get religious about making elections fair and very easy. There’s just more of us than them and this would accrue to our benefit. You’d think this would be priority one of Dems, but instead, every four years we get outraged and surprised by GOP bold attempts at suppression.

      OMG Grace … that is exactly what I was thinking earlier …. when I read that a voting place in FL closed with people still in line to vote. Why are the national elections not run by the Federal Government ….? Then the state, local elections can be run state by state however they like.

    Just stopping by to post a slogan they just put up at the Santa Monica staging location that I think is kind of cool. Don’t know if other areas are using it: Remember (SW)3N = Some Will; Some Won’t; So What – Next. Every call helps; keep going. [The 3 is to the 3rd power; couldn’t figure out how to do that here.

      I missed the Florida speech, but I can’t wait to watch it, especially after reading your comment Nena lol !

      I’ve sensed too that in the last few days, the President is confident. Something in his smile, in his eyes even. And the way he speaks about the people’s power: a beautiful mix of intensity and serenity. It just melts my heart and my soul.

    An interesting poll was just released by YouGov. Notably, the poll surveyed 36,000 which is by far the largest sample I’ve seen. PBO leads by two, 47.5 to 45.5. Eleven point lead with women and Romney only has a 9 point lead with men. Notably, Romney only takes 54% of the white vote which is not nearly enough for him to win this, with PBO at 40%. Also interesting is the fact that PBO is getting 5.7% of the 2008 McCain vote while Romney is getting 7.7% of the 2008 Obama vote. Instinctively that feels about right to me which accounts for the closer election this time around. In any event, it is interesting simply because of the sample size. BTW, I think they’ve undersampled AA and Latinos so I suspect this is more of a 3 point race. Results are here: http://cdn.yougov.com/r/1/ygTabs_november_likelyvoters_National.pdf

    President Clinton is getting ready to campaign in Raleigh NC shortly.
