Thanks, but until one of the states are called it is stupid to worry. People need to drill down and check the counties votes that is the key, not everyone votes at once.

I listened to some New Orleans call-in radio show today, the election of course, and I couldn’t believe some of the absurd, asinine, space-cadet reasons some were giving for voting for Obozo-unreal, as if they saw reality from the other side of the looking glass. One guy’s reason-because Romney is rich. At least the money Romney spends is his own, Obozo spends everybody else’s, including that jackazz’s, assuming he’s not one of the freeloaders!

Dick Morris is really starting to piss me off.
His last 2:

Dick Morris ✔ @DickMorrisTweet #election2012 it is of concern that Romney is 3 behind in Florida with 56% of the vote in Expand 17m Dick Morris ✔ @DickMorrisTweet #election2012 Romney could win Fla by 5-8, enough for a natioal bg win

Dam I was really really optimistic-— this fox coverage is super duper doom and gloom.


I don’t know what gives with Fox tonight, unless they know something we don’t. I turned them on 6 pm central time and they were already all but claiming obama won.

What is it about Conservatives that make you all a bunch of Eyores?

Panic that they have not called VA yet no joy they have not called PA either. They kept the polls open longer because the lines were so long in VA. Especially in SW VA which is COAL country.

A little balance here people.

And how many years just in the recent past in narional elections have the exit polls been azz-backwards? They've called it for Kerry, for Gore-does everyone forget the MSM is in the tank for the left, and O'Reilly is no conservative?

Virginia is concerning. What are the thoughts on those there? I don’t see us winning if we lose VA.

Just heard Rove on an audio feed from some TV venue. He is talking happy talk on VA and OH. Comforting.

Is the electoral map I’m using.

So far, no surprises. Lots of votes not yet tallied, even where polls have closed.

With voting hours being extended, and contentious states running close (opening the door for the lawsuits) - it’s going to be a long night.

Latest from Morris but have no idea what he's talking about:

Chill? I was confident earlier however the depressing panel on FNC and O’Reilly injecting his doom and gloom analysis made my stomach tighten. The fact some states are still too close to call adds to the apprehension. Fortunately O’Reilly was followed by Rove who eased some of the tension. Just looked at Sabato’s tweet who sees good news for Romney in Va.

Oh how can Obama have a chance. He sold out the younger generation and saddled them with high debt - 20 Trillion at the end of the next 4 years, 50% of college grads cannot find jobs now, 14.6% “real” unemployment, he said he’d have it at 5.2%, Obamacare shutting down Small Business. On & on.

OMG.

To me, that's a good sign. If Pennsylvania was sticking to type, it would have been called for the Liberal Messiah awhile ago.

The early votes were reported first.

Ohio is definitely a worry, but far too early to give up on it.

Rove seemed pleased with the data he was seeing there.

McMahon lost in Ct. to Murphy. I really thought she had a good shot of winning.

Hi FRiend... I hope your power is back on! We've been out of state since Oct 26 - got back late last night. You've been in our thoughts and prayers. We went through that hell twice last year with Trop. Storm Irene and with the stupid Halloween snowstorm of 2011.

I can't believe McMahon lost again... I also thought she might have a good shot. That's the end of her. Marxist Murphy is only 38 - he'll be in the Senate for decades - he's set for life.

The People's Republik of Connecticut sucks...

Crap... FNC looking gloomy, CNN sounding cheery. >:-(

Ohio numbers thus far are mostly early voting and the early votes from GOP heavy counties aren’t in yet. Plenty of time

Re: Florida — Bush in 2004 won the Central Time Zone counties by about 195,000 votes. McCain won them by about 175,000 votes. I don’t know which counties have come in yet, though those are likely laggers. The Obama lead is quite surmountable.

Also a tweet on NRO: “GOP insiders gone from “Boy, this doesn’t look good” to “hey, we might pull this out” in NC, VA, FL in past hour. “

Workerbee, it’s not worth jeopardizing your health. Turn off the TV for an hour and FR too. Take a walk, a shower, have a hot chocolate, take something relaxing, pet your cat or dog or bird if you have one, flip thru a catalog, etc,....don’t obsess.

In an hour, everything will likely be about the same. Even if you wait until tomorrow AM, it everything will be here on FR for you and the stats on Fox website.

FOLKS: Don’t let OBAMA ruin your peace of mind any more than the b———d has already. We are so close!
