So this is what I see happening in November

This is what i see happening in November:

A week or so before the election, the secretaries of states for CA, PA, FL, OH, IN, MI and other "must have" states get a personal visit from some thug in the Obama administration, telling him (or her) that Obama will win that state; make up any numbers you want, but Obama will win. Get it? Wink, wink. Or else. You have kids? Grandkids? They're all healthy, right? You want them to stay that way, right?

Then election night comes and the networks broadcast the results and, even in counties that usually vote very heavily for conservatives, the numbers for republicans are just not there.

Obama wins by a landslide; republicans cry foul, but who cares? Who is going to stand up and seriously question The One?????

And there you have it. In one night, it's over and we wake up in the morning to a total dictatorship......

Congress continues to meet, the Supremes continue to hear cases but none of it matters. Orders for EVERYTHING come right from the White House....

Geez, do I hope i'm wrong......

Think you’ve got that pretty much correct; you can add Texas as well. The Dems control the returns from all the major urban areas such that 1) the early votes will mysteriously dissappear, (older whites usually vote early absentee) and 2)in Dem controlled precincts with only, say 20,000 people, somehow, miraculously, 120,000 votes are returned.

Yep, the election will be about low Republican voter turnout and you’ll know that’s going to be the case when MSM Govt Media outlets start doing the “exit” polling; they’ll be reporting amazement at the “low” turnout.

Obama’s update of Clintoon’s EO means that yes,, the right has the guns, but the feds control food, water, electricity, transportation, medicine and fuel, and they have bombers too.

The progressives won’t touch off a war unless they think they can win.

Very good point. I was 12 when on the same day Reagan was both inaugurated and the hostages were finally released, and I distinctly remember thinking to myself: wow, these Iranian dudes must be sh*t scared of this cat named R. W. Reagan, whereas they weren't scared a whit by Jimmy C.

Viz. Obama's foreign policy CV, unfortunately for me, I traffic in a lot of liberal circles, and I'm continually dumbfounded when they say "yeah, Obama hasn't been all that successful domestically, but look at what he's done in terms of foreign policy."

This means he was at the helm when the US Navy finally put two in Bin Laden's hat and when we withdrew from Iraq.

This, to them, is proof positive of a Churchillian stature on the world stage.

I have that same nightmare. I just hope Romney can articulate the conservative position better than McCane. Obama is weak and desperate, but still dangerous and bus loads of union workers, illegal aliens and vote fraud experts will flood the polls in November. The lame stream media will lie and propagandize for Obama non stop. Unfortunately there are lots of people who will still vote for Obama and believe these lies.

I like Mitt Romney.

That makes one of us.

Obama likes Mitt Romney as the Republican candidate, too. There's A LOT of ways Barry can go after Romney.

Netanyahu is no fool and is very knowledgeable of U.S. domestic politics. The Israelis will not strike against the Iranians until they have the U.S. firmly behind them. With Obama, Netanyahu cannot be sure; with Romney or any possible compromise candidate coming out of the GOP candidate, he and his country would be better off doing what is needed for their security. For the present, it may be in Israel's interest to keep the Iranians roiled up to keep crude oil prices high or drive them up, so as to help unseat Obama.

However, Carter is not Obama. Whatever his flaws, Carter knew what ethical behavior was and would not rely on strong arm tactics. Obama is a devoted student of both Saul Alinsky and Al Capone, the "Chicago way". Also, Romney is not the inspirational leader Reagan was. He is the stereotype "checked pants Republican" Mike Savage rants about. However, if he is smart enough to choose a young movement conservative who is articulate, morally upright, and financially clean (Paul Ryan?), it could partially offset the disdain of the Gingrich and Santorum supporters. Also, he needs to keep Ron Paul and his followers from supporting the Libertarian Presidential candidate (good luck on that!).

Additionally, we have a de facto Stimulus III from the Fed that has pumped money into the economy, causing a rising tide raising all boats. Stimulus III may have peaked too soon in the late winter/early spring. If the economic statistics start sliding again, Obama's reelection chances will slide accordingly.

Some of us think that a Romney first term would be the same as a Obama’s second term. It’s hard to look at Romney’s record of how he governed and think much different.

To better understand that mindset, study the election of Gov. Pataki (R) in NY. Huge, albeit obligatory, support from the Right ... and he got thru more of the Left’s agenda than any (D) ever did or could. The Right was stunned. The concern is that a (D) gets automatic opposition ... but a “centrist” (R) will garner enough Right-wing support to pass any & all Left-wing bills.

No question the options suck. “ABO” is quite sensible. Alas, choosing the lesser of two evils still gets you evil ... and some of us aren’t, for good reason, clear on which is worse.

“No question the options suck. “ABO” is quite sensible. Alas, choosing the lesser of two evils still gets you evil ... and some of us aren’t, for good reason, clear on which is worse.”

Then the debate boils down to:
Will Romney try to cross the aisle and enact the Democrat agenda? And if he does will he be as successful as Obama will be?
Obama may have automatic opposition, but Obama has been able to rule, not govern. Obama will simply ignore Congress in his second term. The MSM will be thrilled, and will cover whatever needs to be covered.

“You might want to keep that to yourself around here. Owner of the site is virulently anti-Mitt. As are many of the posters here, including myself.”

I get it. I read all the anti-Perry-pro-Cain stuff ad nauseum from a variety of FReepers in the beginning.
Romney is barely getting touched compared to what Perry experienced strolling through these hallowed halls. So, I'm seasoned. That said, I admire and respect those who exercise their First Amendment rights while we still have them...”including myself.”

I don’t know who will win in Kaine vs. Allen. Both are highly unpopular. Kaine may well benefit from the high black turnout with Obama on the ticket.

Actually, all the stimulus junk has done is cause inflation.
everything is more expensive. Been to the grocery store lately? 100% increase in some food items, not just gas!

lol

no kidding

White southerners now cling to the GOP and loathe the Dems with a tenacity not seen since Reconstruction when they felt that way about the Radical Republicans

Non southerners always think it’s just about God in Dixie...it’s not...it’s culture...in their case a shared one....going back to the start

There are cursing, drinking, hard driving men and women in Dixie who don’t like Evangelicals telling them how to live too but they (90% at least) hate this view that America is a crime, Western Civilization is one big ripoff of better minorities and that their ancestry is not better than Nazis and worse than Commies...and that they owe them something for a long ago past when in the present it’s the group that claim’s it’s owed making the most trouble

Except for dumbassed arty old hippies, govt workers, northern transplants and stupid young bright eyed kids, whites in the Deep South are a lost cause to the Democrats

and have been gradually since Goldwater-Nixon-Reagan....I think Clinton snagged a couple when enough whites defected

other than that...only southern states to stray are the ones with enough folks from elsewhere moved in....VA, NC, and FL

White Southerners have lived this social experiment petrie dish for a long time and know really well how the safety and order has collapsed around them.

Few Northerners outside Detroit get it like that

It’s not First Amendment rights that you need to worry about at FR, it’s whether or not the proprietor allows you rights on his private property.

Southerners hate Romney to the point that they are voting for Santorum, a Catholic, in overwhelming numbers.

Apparently, some of that vote was from Democrats crossing over and voting in the Republican primary, in order to skunk the Republicans; Operation Chaos in reverse.

I think MOST Republicans, at least those not enamored of Romney will take an 'ABO' attitude, and vote for whoever the Republican nominee happens to be.

One other thing that could turn it aside from gasoline prices is what happens in the debates, although I have no confidence in anyone on our side other than Gingrich being able to stand up to Obama in those. In fact, I think Obama, with the help of the media moderators, will wipe the floor with anyone other than Gingrich. But, anyway, back in ‘80, Reagan's performance in the last debate with Carter was outstanding. He answered positively a lot of questions people had about him. He gave them a sense of comfort and a glimpse of his leadership ability. And of course his closing remark was brilliant. He simply asked people if they were better off today than they were four years ago. If they were, he said, they had no reason to vote to change leadership. But if they sensed that America was not in a stronger position in the world, if the national economy was not stronger, if their own personal financial position was weaker, then there was reason to vote for a change. It was devastating. Carter simply couldn't answer that, because his record on all those things was utterly inept. In a few simple sentences, it turned the voter focus squarely on the failures of Carter, and away from any lingering doubts they may have had about Reagan. Can any of our guys do likewise this time? I kind of doubt if, for the reasons we've discussed.

Most republicans will vote for Romney, I agree, but if 5% stay home he will lose big.
