That's my early warning signal.
Wife just tweeted a pic of her line here in NoVa. She estimates 100+ in front and 100+ behind her.
I voted at 6:20 AM.
I’m in also.
Waiting until people go off to work, and hoping that the lines are shorter.
FUBO and your mindless worshippers, too!
Two for Romney/Ryan here in Huntington, Indiana. Never had a line at our polling place here before, did this morning. Everyone knows Indiana is coming to it’s senses after 2008, but, lines are good this time around I think.
Will the MSM Lose Yet Again? (Lets HOPE so!!)
November 4, 2012

Some years ago, back in 1984, Ronald Reagan won reelection over Walter Mondale, carrying 49 states. Afterwards, the most prestigious columnist at the most prestigious newspaperJames Reston of the New York Timespermitted himself a confession:
Among the losers in this Presidential election campaign you will have to include the nosy scribblers of the press. Not since the days of H. L. Mencken have so many reporters written so much or so well about the shortcomings of the President and influenced so few voters. Mr. Reagan beat the newspapers by ignoring them. From his nomination in Dallas to election weekend he has not held a single national news conference. He gave one or two interviews to sympathetic writers and allowed a few small-time high school and college audiences to toss him some questions, but he dismissed the White House press corps with a wave and a smile.
In other words, the MSM went all-in to defeat Reagan, and were decimated by the voters. You can almost hear Reston gnashing his teeth when you read the headline:
Reagan Beats the Press.
This little flashback set me wondering whos todays James Reston, and who, if anyone, would be man enough to make such a confession, if Romney wins on Tuesday. David Brooks? Nah, hes had dozens of chances to out himself but never gets there. Matthews? Not a chance.
Theres a better chance of True Confessions from some of the pollsters. Just remember that Reagan-Carter in 1980 was too close to call for the pollsters, including Gallup. And if either candidate wins big in this election, there will be a target-rich environment for poll skeptics.
Reviewing the bidding: the media dont have nearly the power that they, and many of us, think they have. And the pollsters, who get to talk to one out of every eleven people they (or their robots) call, are very afraid that theyre going to have to come up with some sort of scientific-sounding explanation for what happened.
Maybe they should take a poll on which explanation sounds most convincing, huh?
America's constitutional republic has made it the land of the free and the home of the brave and the greatest county in the world. Obama's failed administration and socialist agenda is and has proven to be HOPELESS and America desperately needs a CHANGE.
I checked the Ohio SOS site but can't seem to find anything.
I just voted in Warren County, Ohio, one of the reddest of red Ohio counties. I was first in line 45 minutes prior to the polls opening. By the time they opened at 6:30, the line was HUNDREDS deep. It has NEVER been like that.
Can't think of a better place to be.
Our priest has told us all to remember our Catholic Faith when we vote today.
Checking in, and heading off to polls at 9am. I’ll try FR later, but I won’t be expecting to get back in here unless they plug-in all the servers and bring in some extra hamsters.
God, Please Save America!
Going to vote in NC right now
LONG line here in Georgia, west of ATL, at 7 am. Maybe 3 city blocks.
Wife voting at 0700, Pinellas Co, FL. Sent me a text @ 0645; huge line of people standing in a light rain, nowhere to park.
From my little corner of the world.
I was in line at 5:45AM EST. I was #6 in line. All working men ahead of me.
In ‘08, I arrived at the same time and was probably #20 or so in line. I was surrounded by young people, many talking about never having voted before. Many in house clothes, which is to say not going to work.
When the polls opened at 6:00 this morning, there were 40-50 working Americans in line patiently waiting to vote. The crowd was bigger than 2000 and 2004, but they were the real face of the precinct; working men and woman. By the time I voted and left, there were 100 or more in line. All dressed for work.
Based on my narrow view of things from the line I stand in to vote every election, Republicans are turning out big time.
Every year, the guy running the precinct comes out and does the “Hear ye, hear ye. The polls are now open.” It’s really worth getting up for and standing in the cold. For me, it is an affirmation of my freedom. Gives me chills every time I hear it.
Just returned from voting. Some local newsgal, pollster, whatever asked me as I came out “ Are you here to vote?” I said ‘Duh, I’ve waited four years for this moment.’ “May I ask who you voted for?” ‘Sure. Romney.’ “ Was that because you are racist as some people are saying for motivation?” I said ‘ Not at all. I hate his white half too.’ The look on her face was worth the whole episode.
Don’t forget to wish Lazmataz Happy Birthday... (he wants a New President and a Pony)
Got to my polling place in central PA at 0630, and by the time the doors opened at 7 there were already ~25 in line, with more cars pulling in every minute or two.
Great chatter with several others who got there shortly after me, with the concensus being we were all more eager to cast today's votes than any time since Reagan !
When the election official asked for my name, I took my time getting the wallet out, while stating in a clear full voice that "I'm (tomkat) and I'm proud to show my eligibility to vote for President Romney".
It's gonna be a long day's wait, but by tonight we'll have served a tsunami-sized eviction notice on the most hideous presidential mistake this country's ever made !
