Democrats’ “Get-out-the-Vote” Efforts Impressive
Semi-News/Semi-Satire ^ | 9 Nov 2012 | John Semmens

Posted on 11/10/2012 2:07:03 PM PST by John Semmens

One of the things many of the pre-election polls failed to account for was the Democratic Party’s potent get-out-the-vote efforts. While a complete accounting for all votes has not yet been achieved, results from several locations in key battleground states are impressive.

In nearly two dozen precincts from Philadelphia President Obama received over 99% of the ballots cast. This was topped by some precincts in Cleveland where the President secured 100% of the votes cast.

As sterling a performance as these locations in two states accomplished, they were both outdone by precincts in Colorado where the President received in excess of 100% of the votes cast. In GilpinCounty, 110% of the votes went for Obama. County official Gail Maxwell attributed the showing to the County’s “highly mobile and energized population.”

“On a superficial level, Romney was lulled into believing that drawing large crowds to his speeches in the latter weeks of the campaign was a positive sign,” Obama Campaign adviser David Axelrod observed. “But below the surface and hidden from view our methods are what prevailed on election day.”

Never compete in an election where your opponents supporters can vote even though are dead.

...and given the spineless GOP and Congress, not a f**king thing will be done about it.

Sucks watching a once-great nation die with a whimper.

How much of this is factual and how much is satire?

Need links to the non satire parts of the story.

I think Semmens is The Boy Who Cried Wolf. “Ha ha, I was only pulling your leg” ninety-nine times and then he posts something factual, which is an even more dangerous deception, given his record, than the ninety-nine that really were satire. I wish FR would give the this guy the hook for good.

To firebrand:

Having links to the factual reports on which the satire is based would help immensely.

To John:

I am FOR clarification, and AGAINST censorship
