The New York Times ^ | 11/5/2012 | MICAH COHEN

Posted on 11/05/2012 7:28:56 PM PST by Individual Rights in NJ

If the polls are correct, and President Obama wins a narrow Electoral College victory on Tuesday, the pivotal moment of the 2012 presidential race may have actually occurred in 2009. About two months after taking office, Mr. Obama set the terms of the government’s rescue of General Motors and

Bleh- Hope they are really wrong. I'm sure they are coming from the NY Times. I mean what year was the last year they ever published something intellectually honest.

The only problem is the only poll that matters will occur tomorrow and NY Slimes will have to come up with some different material.

BTW, this is hardly "breaking news". If we had a section for "broken news", that would be the place for it.

If it’s “slight” or “narrow”, we’ll see y’all in court. Too much ‘RAT voter fraud for us to lose our country by a “slight” or “narrow” margin.

Caught a glimpse of MSNBC while channel surfing. Who is the skanky looking brunette on O'Donnell's show? Her top lip curls up like she just smelled a fart or fish.

They were godafying Silver's polling analysis while making fun of Limbaugh. Useless idiots.

I’m in the same boat, though I got one to say “Well, maybe- who knows, it seems closer than I thought.”

I figured that is the best you’d get a liberal to ever admit.

The very dodgy theme that the auto-bailout was a great thing that also bought Obama the election in Ohio is really a point of religious faith for the Left.

That’s why they keep bringing it up, even though it likely is quite false.

What made me Google “Ohio polls” that led me to this article is foxnews.com’s homepage saying “Mitt won’t quite, eyes Ohio”.

That phrasing makes it sound like he’s expected to lose with decent certainty, and because it was on Foxnews.com I was like Uh oh (why would they want to portray Mitt as losing).

The headline is still up there, seems really strange, especially when they could be writing “Mitt looks to be pulling away” or something like that.

If the auto bailout is such a clincher for Barry then why is Romney still in the game in Michigan?

“I cannot WAIT for tomorrow. Time is ticking way too slowly.”

The polls open in 50 minutes in New Hampshire: Skating away on the thin ice of a new day! It’s finally here, this long nightmare is finally coming to an end.

The New York Times. The Old Gray Whore. “I wonder if I can trust the Ministry of Truth to report truthfully?” Winston Smith
Gee, Winnie—I dunno. Do you think you might get a relaxing back massage at the Ministry of Love?

The undoing of the fraud known as Barack Hussein Obama, Jr. begins. It’s like midnight, June 6, 1944. Finally.
