Overconfident Alec Baldwin Boasts Obama Win is 'In the Bag!'
NewsBusters ^ | May 2, 2012 | Geoffrey Dickens

Posted on 05/02/2012 1:03:32 PM PDT by Free ThinkerNY

Alec Baldwin is figuratively spiking the football before crossing the endzone. The liberal actor popped up on Tuesday’s edition of The Last Word with Lawrence O’Donnell to brag about Barack Obama’s chances of victory as he claimed that Republicans are “getting scared” and boasted that the President’s victory is all but “in the bag.”

The 30 Rock star also acted as if he had an insight into the inner workings of the GOP as he asserted: “They know it’s not looking good for them.”

If it’s true Democrats should just stay home and not waste time going to the polls.

Ya know Alec Baldwin is so stupid I cannot fathom how he can remember his lines in his TV ads. TV ads are about all he is getting these days.
I personally watched his ad for Capitol One and wondered why they hired this played out actor for the ad. I am sure no Republican who views the ad will ever deposit a dime in that bank.

And yet I'd bet you a dollar he would be "comfortable" with a Romney victory.

Alec Baldwin has spoken so I guess Republicans should simply cede the election to Barack Obama. Oh, wait, Baldwin is an overpaid, arrogant Hollywood leftist idiot that called his young daughter ‘a pig’ and doesn’t have a clue about anything because he’s too busy admiring himself. Never mind.

Liberals are ruled by their emotions and therefore want to be judged by their intentions not their results.

Conservatives are rational and outcome oriented.

The left has indeed already won. With Mitt or Obama, the left will have a President that values the State over the Individual.

Heck, if I was a leftist or RINO I would be giddy. The power of Washington is bound to only grow.

Liberty will prevail when the government collapses in on itself. Mitt would only delay the inevitable.

Mitt would be only a Pyrrhic victory.

I think Baldwin and other liberals are just trying to dampen turnout for the GOP. Whether you like Romney or not, I believe turnout will be very high for our side, and it’ll come from a pretty broad spectrum of the voting public. Our Dear Leader is losing his precious Independents (you know, the folks who aren’t sure what they believe) in droves. Many whites from the “I’m not racist, I voted for a black man!” crowd are leaving him. Blacks will still vote for him but with much less enthusiasm (and less numbers).

Beating Barack is #1 this time around.

Even in grossly overweighted democratic polling Obama cannot poll past 46%.

Short of some sort of some sort of unforseeable incident such as war or something along those lines, Obama will be slaughtered.

Now mind you, I don’t think Romney is a great choice overall, but when compared to Obama, he’s better by far.

At this point, I think Obama’s best case scenario is 43-44% on election day.

No president in the modern age, with the exception of George Bush II, I believe have ended their re-election with a higher percentage of the vote than they got in polling at the begining of the contest. Most end up a few points LOWER.

What is even more significant, is that control of the Senate and House is also very likely, as well.

Not hardly, see post #40.

While I am disgusted the GOP is putting up Romney as their candidate, he’s going to win, and win big. Not only that, but control of the Senate as well is very probable as well.

The Democratic party grotesquely overplayed their hand with the actions of this administration, and 2010 was not the end of the vengence they will have to face.

See Post #40

Obama, short of any sort of massive out of the blue change of events, is toast. He’s not only going to lose, he’s going to lose big.

Just look at his campaign so far. College kids that rallied around him naively 4 years ago, their younger brothers and sisters, are now graduating from college with less than half of them finding work. This administration is the first one in the modern age to wind up with a NET JOB LOSS after 4 years in office, that’s right, a NET JOB LOSS! That means fewer people will be employed on when his firt term is over than when he started the job! That’s never happened in the modern era, even BUSH with 9/11 throwing the entire economic future into chaos had more jobs the end of his first term than when he started.

The enthusiasm for this idiot is gone, the big donors that backed him last time, have learned their lesson and told him to pound salt, because even they have been harmed by this guys ineptitude, he’s trying to make up the difference hitting up individuals, and telling the folks in the Senate and Congress, get bent, no money for you.

This election is going to be a disaster for democrats, the writing is all over the wall, and if the press were honest, instead of being cheerleaders, they’d be telling you this. There is nothing in the numbers, anywhere to have any enthusiasm if you are a democrat this election cycle. They are staring at a nuclear winter.

What’s the things Obama is touting? Everything he’s touting, with the exception of health care, which honestly he’s avoiding because its so unpopular, are results of continuations of BUSH’s policies! He’s got nothing, and knows it.

He’s going to be nasty, and bitter, and ugly.. he’s going to try everything he can and be as nasty as he can in his desperate attempt to retain power, and the more people reject him, the nastier he’s going to be and get, and the more he does it, the less support he will get.

The petty little incompetent guy that he is, is going to be standing naked for all the world to see. The press won’t turn on him yet, they can’t, but even they will come to see the writing on the wall, and to maintain any sort of semblance of saving face, will begin to report the truth as the inevitable approaches. Until they they are going to try to spin it as best they can hoping they can somehow change it, but they can’t.

Don’t kid yourselves folks and don’t get depressed, at least not over an Obama victory, he’d have to overcome odds, even Clinton could not manage to pull this out of the toilet, and frankly, he’s not 1/10th the politician that Clinton was, and unlike Clinton, he doesn’t have a third player designed to play spoiler for him.

Obama won in 08 not out of the fact that he rallied disenfranchised voters, which he did to an extend, but moreso that republicans stayed home. Folks were disgusted with Bush. That ain’t going to happen this time. This guy now has a record he has to run on, and its a record of abject failure.

Don’t buy into the BS folks, its disgusting the GOP tapped Romney as the nominee, but don’t think for one minute that Obama is a shoe in.. all quantitative data shows he’s going to be tossed out on his arse.

“At this point, I think Obama’s best case scenario is 43-44% on election day.

No president in the modern age, with the exception of George Bush II, I believe have ended their re-election with a higher percentage of the vote than they got in polling at the begining of the contest. Most end up a few points LOWER.”

And that is the key point. Obama is going to get fewer votes this year than last. And for every 100 2008 voters that choose not to vote for him in 2012 about 50 will vote for the Republican. (I am assuming the other 50 are die hard Yellow Dog Democrats who would either stay home or vote for the Green Party candidate.) That means a 1.5% swing in the state percentage for every percentage point that Obama loses.

Going by that assumption, Obama gets no states that he did not win in 2008 This gives the Republicans a base of 180 electoral votes. Throw in Indiana and that raises the solid Republican total to 191.

Now start shifting the vote by a percentage point at a time. If Obama gets 1% fewer votes in 2012, that shifts all of the totals by 1.5%, and the Republicans pick up Florida, North Carolina and New Hampshire (38 electoral votes). If 2 out of 100 2008 Obama voters do not vote for The Won, this gives a 3% shift and we get Virginia, Iowa, Colorado and I believe Ohio (46 votes). That leaves the Republicans with 275 electoral votes right there.

Obama is bleeding independents. They gave him his victory in 2008 because he ran as a post-partisan and post-racial president. (Which, of course, he has not delivered.) And, despite the numbers out of Washington, the economy is not healthy.

We are not in a recession (yet), but we did not have a recovery after exiting the 2008 crash, so the unemployment rate reflects that large numbers of workers have simply left the job market. Add in gasoline-based inflation, and the misery index is still sky-high. So assuming even a minor shift in vote seems like a conservative estimate.

It could end up as columnist Don Surber predicted with a 40 state sweep for the Republicans. (Especially if we go back into recession this summer.)
