Obamas Foreign Policy is just one BLUNDER after another.
What was judicious about the slaughter of Our Libyan Ambassador?
What was honorable about the Benghazi Cover Up?
What is stable about an AWOL, Empty Chair Commander In Chief?
Send the BLUNDERING Obama back to the slum streets of Chicago!
Finishing morning coffee now, then off to the booth. I cannot wait. No quarter!
In 2008 I went to vote early and the lines were so long I decided to wait until election day. And it was very depressing. You could tell by the looks on peoples’ faces they couldn’t wait to vote for obama. I hope it’s Romney supporters’ faces that are all lit up today.
Our 8 yr old son is excited about this election, so I promised him I would take him with me after school today so he could witness my vote against Obama & for Romney.
Voting hours here are from 9am to 4pm.
Also Colorado early voting starts today. Colorado has had mail-in voting going for a week (I turned in my ballot Friday at the Board of Elections because I don’t trust some of the USPS people to not ditch ballots in GOP areas).
I voted Texas early at 8 am.
When they opened the doors, the guy behind me said audibly, “I’ve been waiting four years for this.”
He spoke for everyone there as best as I could tell, and there were about 20 of us, and probably a dozen more by the time I left at 8:07.
Late night news from Austin showed the Congregation of the Clueless gathering for early voting, which begins this morning. Wonder how much the Democrat Party paid that scruffy-looking bunch to show up for TV?
And speaking of clueless, the Dallas Morning News endorsed totally-bland Democrat Paul Sadler for the Senate race, instead of the awesome Republican Ted Cruz, proving once again that the Dallas and Houston newspapers aren’t fit to house-train your dog on.
Dallas is a bastion for Democrats. Nobody pays attention to the Morning News any more. I haven’t set foot in Dallas proper for years. The surrounding suburbs are solid red though. Except maybe for Irving which is a sanctuary city. Sad. Irving used to be a nice place. Lived there for years back in the 70’s.
Voted this morning straight Republican ticket!
I truly wonder in today’s world if a newspaper endorsement means anything to the voters.
Euless, TX Library voting precinct has Obama 2012 signs, not 1 Romney sign. What gives?
I had to present my drivers license in order to vote. :-)
Voted this morning
I’m going out later and if the lines aren’t long I’ll stop and do my duty.
Be there later today or tomorrow
I had to present my drivers license in order to vote. :-)
I’ve used my DL for years now as I never carry my registration card with me. Just show them my DL and sign the roles, vote and go on. Most all people have a valid ID and imo it should be require as a step in the voting process.
Just voted. A guy had on a t-shirt that said “Makers not Takers” and they told him to take it off. He refused and the poll worker said “I know who you’re voting for.”
The guy said “How does this shirt tell you who I’m voting for?” He was told again that he’d have to take it off. They compromised and he rolled it up and exposed his belly.
I had a feeling it’s primary Romney voters. There weren’t very many obvious obama voters. But, this is Texas and Romney will win big here.
Can you elaborate on this?
Oh duh never mind, I see that was from 2008. :P
in '08 there were bussloads of blacks in lines 100's long at the county recorders offices statewide
At the Lockwood library early voting location it was a 35 minutes wait at 2pm on the 1st day of early voting!
I don’t think I have seen a line like that on election day in my normal precinct!
We just early voted at about 1 PM in Collin County. There were about 12 in line in front of us, 10 at booths or being checked in, and when we left the line was about the same as when we got there. A young kid with a disability of some kind wearing an Obama I’ve Got Your Back tee shirt was in booth next to me, saw one other guy with a sappy tee shirt message that made me think Obama voter, but except for that everyone looked serious and conservative and like they were on a mission. And I can tell a conservative from a liberal just by looking at them with 98.6% accuracy.
Judging from the Romney signs in East Dallas, it may not be true this election.
I voted about 9:30 this morning and it was a steady line of about 20 or so with 12 voting machines with voters at them. Early voting is becoming more the norm as best as I can tell.
I just got back from voting. In line at 4:00 pm and left at 4:45 pm. Huge line. The workers said it had been busy ALL day.
I’m in a strongly conservative/republican area.
You must not have had your voter registration card with you.
I haven’t used my voter registration card in years, many years. I just pull out my Drivers License and that’s all you need. No fuss, no mess. In fact they were doing like your location telling people to have either their DL or voter registration card. They didn’t mention scanning as a quicker method.
An early voting bump in case you are interested. Take care.
So my ballot can get lost, misplaced, and then magically reappear two weeks later, as reported in Michigan today? No thanks.
The path to easy fraud is paved with early voters and their naivete.
Me too...sad day.
This is in person voting, not absentee ballot voting.
I live in Euless and I have many friends living in Irving. It’s becoming a dump and starting to look like Mesquite. All the strip malls are ghost towns or occupied by dollar stores. There is no zoning regulations at all. It’s starting to creep into Euless, so I’m starting to prep the house to sell it if Romney wins and the economy turns around in about 2 years I can get back what it was worth. Irving was heavily dependent on the Cowboys stadium and without it, they’re gonna have to raise property taxes. Euless on the other hand at least has some revenue coming in for the airport and car rental lots.
To each his/her own. I’m happy with the process and have voted early for the past many years. Here we don’t use ballots but vote on machines except for absentee. We use the same machines that are used on election day, the same voter rolls, the same workers, etc.
Voted this morning, I was waiting for this day for a long time! It felt good.
It’ll be interesting to see if Texas breaks the 40% threshhold in early voting this year. It was just under 40% in 2008.

My daughter in law’s dad lives in Euless too. His area is still OK but I notice when driving out there that parts of Euless are deteriorating.
I’m glad to see Irving finally came to its senses. At one time it was a sanctuary city as far as I know. Not when I lived there, however. I left Irving in 1984.
The by mail voters seem pretty high in Harris, Tarrant, Fort Bend, Montgomery, and Galveston counties.
Given the proclivity of the Rat’s to voter fraud as well as the relative ease to which this can be accomplished, I find those numbers highly suspect.
Maybe it’s just me but my “spidey-sense” started going off when I saw the day one numbers.
Some comparative stats from the last few election cycles may be needed to alleviate my concerns.
