NOT voting for Romney, whatever his faults, helps 0bama. Is that what you want?
Politics is the art of the possible and making the best of a bad situation.
Don't make a bad choice worse.
Garde la Foi, mes amis! Nous nous sommes les sauveurs de la République! Maintenant et Toujours!

LonePalm, le Républicain du verre cassé (The Broken Glass Republican)
There were hundreds of ballots sent in by military personnel abroad and the Democrats had lawyers prowling Florida intimidating local voting registrars into not counting them.
The question was whether or not those envelopes were lawfully sent even if they had not been postmarked.
At that time USPS managed the part of the Motor Voter Law regarding how ballots sent by mail were to be handled ~ I was working in the part of the organization that had the jurisdiction to make the mailability decision that explained the USPS position regarding the need for postmarks on that mail.
As I recall no postmarks were needed since NONE of the ballots sent from APO FPO addresses required postage at all. And with no postage affixed there was no legal requirement to postmark the envelopes.
Florida law required a postmark. But Florida does not run USPS, nor did they manage the Motor Voter Law. They simply had no authority to require any of those ballots to be postmarked. It was clear the supremacy clause would overrule Florida's postmark law.
Eventually George Bush obtained favorable court rulings on other matters, but if they'd but sent in an appeal to our office (the right place for that appeal to go) I was prepared to sign my decision written the evening before that would have allowed all those absentee ballots to be counted ~ postmark or not.
So, there you have it ~ I had that rare chance to make someone President on a technicality ~ and that's how it would have happened.
The more astute analysts see the chance for a very close election coming up. There are two or three states that will be more closely divided than the others. I live in such a state ~ to wit, Virginia.
We are exceedingly closely divided. It could come down to just a handful of people ~ a single family perhaps, living in Northern Virginia ~ to make all the difference.
I was prepared once, I am prepared to carry that heavy burden again.
Clue ~ your boy Romney is at fault when he loses.
Your information was very interesting, until the end.
There is no need for statements like that, as Romney is not 'my boy'.
There were others I would have much preferred, but he is the one left standing so I will hold my nose and vote for him, because there is nothing I would rather see then than Obama removed from office.
It ain't over 'til it's over!
Whomever comes out of the convention has my vote!
I don’t flip from socialist pro-choice democrat to socialist pro-choice democrat, just because one has an R by his name.
Yeah right Mittbot. Right after you quit calling yourself a conservative and return to du where you belong. No Romney!!!!!..... No how!!!!!!
By the way numb nuts. My state isn't in play anyway.
Mark Steyn and the Hermanator went for Mitty.
I’ll hold my nose and push the button for him.
If nothing else, it’s term limits for Baraq.
You’re a class act.
That actually describes the guy/guys - either one makes no difference - and their pro-abortion, anti-gun, pro-homo, big government that you're voting FOR.
You can weasel-tongue all you want, but with your consent those are the things you are for.
Where are you thinking of moving to?
