Good grief, I hope you’re right.

But after Obama got elected, I lost faith in the majority of the American people.

There was no excuse for that.

Well since all or most of the swing states are implementing voter ID then there will be about 2 million less voters for the Democrats. Dead, illegals duel voters etc!

I do believe Romney will win, and it won’t be all that close. We’ll keep the House and the Senate, well, I think it’ll certainly tighten up.

150 to 170% in late reporting Obama districts.

A LOT of late reporting Obama districts...

Sure. It’ll get me flamed but what the Hell:

Obama beats Romney EV 332-206
Dems keep Senate 51-49 as Angus king caucuses with Dems
GOP keeps House by 10-15 Seats

Please check my postings, I have predicted many many months ago that Obumbum will lose by a landslide never before seen in the history of this Country and I am sticking to that prediction!

Anyone, including daffy duck could beat Obumbum and the old media knows this fact, that is why we are seeing polls with an over sampling of liberal socialist by a whopping 11%, just to present falsely to the American people the election is close and to keep the attention of the American people!

The latest statement “you didn’t build that” is just icing on the cake. Watch how the old media and Obumbum try and put the toothpaste back in the tube, it is a laugh!

Many fellow soldiers in my unit who have never voted in their young lives are going to vote and are preparing absentee ballots from their respective States!

Obumbum loses by the largest landslide in history and the title of the following Newsweek Mag after the election in November will read: “we are all racist now!”

Romney was CHOSEN by the DNC to run to diminsh
turn out.

THEREFORE, 20 to 30% of those who WOULD have
voted GOP do not show up.

And of those who do, 50% refuse to vote for the
Author of ObamaCARE and GayMarriage or for some
other reason (e.g. they hate liars and carpetbaggers).

RESULT: Obama wins. DNC takes Senate and House.

Mr.RomneyCARE then calls Mr. Soros and arranges
a JET BLUE meeting, and calls his bank to
cash the billions of profit he collected.

Romney Wins popular vote.
Romney Wins electoral vote.
Obama sues based on "voter suppression" in swing states.
Court finds in favor of Obama awards electoral votes to Obama.

CW 2 starts soon after.

I believe that no matter who wins, nothing will change for the better.

NOTHING on tax reform
NOTHING on Obamacare
NOTHING on ILLEGAL immigration
NOTHING on reducing spending
NOTHING on reducing the size of government

We CAN expect more of the same ole socialism and the demise of what used to be called the greatest country on earth.

Instead of responding like an honest person,
you throw ad hominem.

Just like a RomneyBOT, you are.

What part of DEATH PANELS, ObamaCARE and TARP
gets YOU excited? or is it global warming?
or perhaps Romney's judge-packing history?
Or are you paid by Team Romney to attack here, too?

WANT TO KNOW WHY ROMNEY CANNOT WIN? (hint: RomneyCARE)


Mitt Romney wins much coveted Jimmy Carter endorsement

Gore Praises Romney's 'Climate Protection Plan'

Carville(D):
"It's a feel-good story, this Romney thing.
Romney is an ascendant guy
."

Sen. John Kerry (D) to Don Imus on RomneyCARE:
"I like this health care bill".

Sen. Hillary Clinton (D) on RomneyCARE:
"To come up with a bipartisan plan in this polarized environment is commendable."

We’ll see about turnout.

Here in Virginia, during June’s GOP Senate primary, George Allen won handily, but a pathetic <10% turned out to vote. The Tea Party could’ve... BY ITSELF.. carried Jamie Radtke to victory, but mostly stayed home. Hopefully that won’t be replicated in the national election.

I have Romney picking up 3% vs. McCain and losing 303-235. It appears the state we differ on is Florida.

....Obumbum will lose by a landslide never before seen in the history of this Country.....

Gonna be awfully hard to top the 58.8%-40.6% popular vote and 525-13 electoral beatdown Reagan handed Mondale in 1984.

The numbers will probably be more like the 1996 election in popular and electoral numbers, though in Romney's favor.

I predict I’ll be voting for Tom Hoefling. Romney will lose by a landslide, that is if he makes it as far as the election. As for the Senate, that’ll be worked out in various state courts and the Dems will keep their majority. They’ll also try to cast doubts on the outcomes of other races, as need arises.

But in the unlikely event it’s close between Obama and Romney, that’ll go to court/s and Obama will remain president until the court sees it his way.

Voting isn’t working.

I agree. People don’t like Obama, but Romney is not an attractive alternative and in fact barely presents himself as an alternative. So people will go with the devil they know.

That is, the people who vote. Most people won’t even vote. I know I’m not working the polls this year because I simply can’t support Romney. There’s nothing to support him on, since he has already indicated that he would continue most of Bambi’s policies (Romney is both the “father of Obamacare” and is also considered the “father of gay marriage” in MA).

The GOP strikes again and picks a loser candidate. Obama will win, and I’m wondering now what isolated patch of woodland I should consider for my future residence...

Romney will slowly start pulling away from O starting now. The Olympics will give a bump. I see 55-45 for Romney. The Republicans will have 53-54 seats in the Senate and pick up another 10 in the House. The house gain should be larger, but the number of gerrymandered safe seats is so high that the number of competitive seats is low. Pennsylvania could be fertile ground if they put the money in to some of the races.

Here in North Texas we are in the midst if the Cruz-Dewhurst Senate runoff campaign, and I was told by a poll worker on Monday that turnout in the June primary was 12%, and they expected turnout for the runoff election would be even less that that. Apparently the great majority of Americans don’t give a crap who our leaders are.
