It Is Going To Be Romney By A Landslide
The Financial Physician ^ | October 4, 2012 | Lou Scatigna

Posted on 10/04/2012 12:27:12 PM PDT by louscat

Three weeks ago I boldly stated on my national radio show that Mitt Romney was going to win the election by a landslide. That week I received quite a number of emails questioning my mental health. While the status of my mental health may be debatable, I believed Romney was going to win big for the following reasons:

The Economy-Americans always vote with their pocketbook. No President has been re-elected with the unemployment rate above 7%. Today the “official” unemployment rate is 8.1% and the real (U-6) rate is over 14%. The only jobs being created are low paying service jobs. Real family income is lower than it was in 2008. Gas prices have more than doubled during Obama’s term causing financial stress on many families. In addition to high energy prices a trip to the supermarket is now a scary thing for struggling families. The housing market has not rebounded even with interest rates at historic levels.

I’m guessing Hussein’s handlers are already preparing the RACIST post-election response.

All the leftist freaks I hear from already have it down pat.

I think Romney will be an excellent President. He has "character" so lacking in Obama's camp.

And you know what...Character counts....it's how you choose your friends!!

It Is Going To Be Romney By A Landslide

I pray you are correct, but one debate doesn't win it. It is like a playoff series in baseball when one team creams the other 15-1 in the first game and everyone assumes it's over only to have the other team comes back and win by slim margins in the remaining games.

Believe me, you haven't seen cheating or dirty tricks like you're going to see between now and election day. Hussein 0bama and the dims will stop at literally nothing to hold on to power.

I am not not so sanguine.

First, there are a lot of people out there voting for “free stuff” and not all of them are the 47%. A lot of them are rather powerful corporations (GE comes mind) and “banksters.”

Second, if Obama becomes a liability, will he live until election day? A false-flag assassination could win the election for the Democrats or even suspend elections all together.

I believe the Dems think that the debates are actually useless and none of the 47% will switch because of them. Mitt is sooooo right.

I think maybe there are enough racist Democrats who don’t want another racist holiday.

That's right... it's a political "eternity" between today and November 6th.

I can dream, but I'm not buying "landslide" just yet...

This debate was a turning point. Obama has lost his magic to the shock of all his supporters.

He will not be able to muster it back again without dropping all of his cards.

And by then it will be too late.

The Reichstag fire and Gleiwitz incident were both succesful for their intended purposes.

If that happens the President will be Joe Freaking Biden! And he will become the de-facto Democrat nominee. With less than a month to go there will be no way to get a substitute candidate on all 50 state ballots. And since States control the election no way the Feds can postpone. And even if they did this Presidency turns into a Pumpkin on January 20. No provision for any other scenario. We would not get more Biden but a complete power vacuum.

Gotta give Obama credit on this. Picking Slow Joe for his Veep was the best life insurance he could buy.

Romney will win the popular vote by a solid amount.

The Electoral College, however, still poses problems. It's all going to come down to Ohio, I think.

I’m not afraid of the riots, what I’m afraid of is that the homeless, totally absent for the past 4 years, will suddenly return to our clean, sunny streets.

Romney will in handily, Obama cannot and will not get over 42-43% of the popular vote.

Yes the EC will not reflex how badly Obama is going o lose due to population distribution but Obama is not going to win the EC while getting clobbered in the popular vote

Obama, with the sole exception of MN. Will not carry a single state he won by less than 55% of the popular vote in 2008.

This election is not, was not and will never be close. Fight like it is but the idea that Obama was ever in this thing is and always was laughable.

Yup. That is why I, too, am predicting a romney landslide.

I still do not think Obama will finish his term and there was evidence of the catalyst for it last night: A personal meltdown.

I have been saying for four years that we will not have presidential elections because Zero will create some kind of coup to stay in power. Of course, I hope I am wrong.

“The housing market has not rebounded even with interest rates at historic levels.”

The Real estate people seem to think that it has. A house that, at the top of the bubble, would have gone for 475,000 went on the market last week for 419,000. The Long Island rail road Babylon line runs 60 feet south of this homes half acre lot. Almost half a mil for a crappy low ranch. I’m watching this one!

I might agree with this if things were “normal.” But there are an awful lot that needs to be watched here...

1) Right off the bat, we need to remember that we’re dealing with a Chicago political machine on a national scale, filled with thugs never before unleashed on the American public. Believe me, we haven’t begun to see the slimy, underhanded, lying political ads.

2) The media was unhappy with Obama’s performance last night, and some people on the right took it to mean they’re going to abandon Obama. I believe that’s COMPLETELY WRONG! The Ministry of Propaganda isn’t just going to “double down” their support of Obama - They’re going to “triple down” or “quadruple down” on him. Get ready for a level of fawning love for Obama, and really ugly smears on Romney on a scale never before seen.

3) Obama is a master of the “Jedi Mind Trick,” and unfortunately, he’s managed to fool people into believing in him as the greatest thing since FDR! His cult of personality is incredibly far reaching. He has supporters of Israel believing he’s Israel’s best friend since Truman. He has the people his policies oppress the worst, literally singing his praises.

4) Obama has made it clear that his priority is to “fundamentally change” the USA. One way to do that is to create divisions of the population that haven’t been seen since the time of the Civil War. He is attempting to divide up by race, class, income, and even union members vs independent human beings. And in every case, he’s doing his best to vilify those who disagree with him. They’re not just wrong or mistaken. They’re EVIL for their views.

5) Along with that “fundamental change” mentioned above, I believe that the long term objective of the dems, beginning back in the 2000 elections, is to discredit the American electoral system. And the Obama campaign has thousands of lawyers ready to run to the courts to disrupt the election tally.

Under no circumstances should we believe this is going to be a cakewalk.

Mark

In this ‘post constitution’ era I’d say they’ll do as they damned well please.

Yup, as evidenced last night, it seems that Bathhouse Barry has some real mental and physical issues. I would not be shocked to hear that he is stepping down because of them. If things continue to go bad for him, he becomes a liability for the regime. Do not underestimate them! They are capable of doing anything to retain power. Pray for Gov. Romney’s safety as well!

A blowout? I've been saying this for a couple months....even when things have looked grim and grimmer.

I've even said it about my state of Florida where I look for the GOP to sweep practically all state and national offices....local, too.....and this is still considered an up-for-grabs state.

There's a vast, silent, non-demonstrative majority out there across the fruited plain....waiting quietly to finally explode and be propelled to the polling places on election day in the desperate hopes that the Republicans can return our society to a sensible path toward prosperity and national confidence.

Basic self-preservation instincts will rule the day.

I predict that Romney will take the electoral college votes in all but a relative handful of the 57 states....and that there's going to be a lot of straight GOP ballots which augurs well for control of the House and Senate.

My political instincts may sometimes be wrong, but I don't think my instincts on human behavior in the face of financial ruin and cultural implosion is off the mark at all.

Self-preservation, whether physical or economic, will end up in a stunning victory when the polls close in towns and hamlets across the nation....wait and see.

“It Is Going To Be Romney By A Landslide”

No. It won’t be. Sorry to be the worry wort.

Romney has to pull off winning both Ohio and Florida, either of which he trails in now. Even if he is able to charge from behind, his victory will be by a modest margin, no landslide (at least in those states).

If he doesn’t win Virginia (not looking like he can), he will have to also win Colorado, Iowa, perhaps New Hampshire too — to make up for the loss of VA.

I don’t expect a landslide from Romney. Four months ago, the majority of posts on Free Republic regarding Romney were to the effect, “he can’t win against Obama”. The attitudes certainly have changed around here, have they not?

Frankly, I don’t care about a landslide.
I just want Mr. Romney to win.
And yes, I’ll be voting a straight Republican ticket November 6th. (Aside, I would vote the straight Republican ticket no matter who ended up on the ballot — I DO NOT vote for democrats.)

Get ready for the riots.

Several months back I posted here that we'd know Obama is going to lose when whispers of "unrest" begin to pop up. I imagine about two or three weeks before the election is the crucial time. It'll be the only card liberals have left to play and, of course, they'll deal it from the bottom of the deck. Keep your ears open.

On a related note, I did hear a reporter a week or so ago say to Romney that a lot of people would be disappointed if the first black President lost, and how was he (Romney) going to be a President for all the people. That may have been the start.
