Gary Doucheman is only going there to be sure the regime knows it’s enemies and to make them a target for future behavior modification. All of King County can expect an audit.

Well to the good denizens of King County I say Yeehaw.

King County, Texas has a total population of only 286. Not 286 registered voters, a total of 286 people.

And Obama still won 5 votes. That's 5 more than Romney won in certain precincts in Philadelphia with far more voters.

Doesn't anybody else find that strange?

I think they said that Romney got 139 votes.

Last time it was 151 for McCain to 8 for Obama, and in 2004 it was 137 for GWB to 18 for Kerry.

They're on a roll.

Looks like Obama lost support since 2008, Wikipedia claims he got 8 votes four years ago.

Don’t know friend. You’d have to compete with mine. We produced seven out of nine anti-Obama votes out of my household. We would have gotten all nine, but my grandson is too young to vote and my son-in-law hasn’t gotten his U.S. citizenship yet.

Yes, but the reporter was much safer in the most anti-Obama district than he would be if he traveled to the most anti-Romney district.

Thinking more like WACO.........

Why in the world would anyone care about a little county like that? Harassment? Showing the libs where they need to move. Dredging up reasons that Texas can not secede?

The people in Kings County need to refuse to speak with any of them.

I think you may have some rivals for that claim.I can’t stand that guy.On the other hand,the grandson has already been indoctrinated.
obama came on the television and I said to the 6 yr old grandson,that guy is a bad man.The 6yr old says”you don’t like Obuma”I said NO.He said “you mean you voted for the other guy”? Yes,I did.He ran from the room to tell the others about my no vote for the POS.

King County is thinly populated but basically similar to rural North and West Texas, the Texas Panhandle, and most of Oklahoma. Obama voters represent one quarter or less of the voting population, and are largely members of Hispanic or black minority populations. The white "yellow dog" Democrats are extinct. A few white school teachers and resident state or Federal bureaucrats are liberal, but keep their opinions to themselves. The flip side of conservatives in the Northeastern and California cities.

No, the most anti-Obama place in the country is my car! Emblazoned across the back are the words DON’T BLAME ME, I DIDN’T VOTE FOR THE COMMUNIST! (next to which there is a small, red hammer & sickle). I am getting lots of thumbs up on the road! (probably a few third fingers, too, but I don’t see them. I have a turbo, so I just pass anyone with an “O” on their car and get in front of them.

I am sure that the facts about the King County vote are correct, but CNN has an agenda.

This is a pushback on the stories about the precincts in Philadelphia and Cleveland where widespread fraud was committed and Romney got no votes.

The fact that CNN did this story indicates to me that there is a huge amount of meat on the voting-fraud story.

100% of the vote. Not just once. Not just twice. Over 50 times!

Now isn’t this were polling places had a mural of a candidate’s face painted on the wall? A candidate’s logo painted on the wall? Poll workers wore a candidate’s campaign attire? And poll watchers where ejected?

Isn’t that the same place?

King country, with the “town” of Guthrie as county seat, is in MY area of TX, although approx. 70-80 mi from me. But in TX, trust me, that’s not very far.

It is ranching and oil country. Period. With a few government workers thrown in. People leave there and don’t go back, when they’ve done with the local schools. It is remote, isolated, pretty in a rough-hewn way. The population trend is inexhorably downward and one day, unless a new energy boom or the like occurs there, it will be a ghost county/town.

People there still hold to timeless American values, but they are dying. It used to be Democrat, way back when, such as when Rick Perry’s dad was a Democrat county commissioner in Haskell county, east of there. But the Democrat party left them, they didn’t leave it. And they finally recognized it and now vote accordingly.

I have been there once or twice, but truly unless you have some reason to go there or go through there, you are always better off taking a different route, whereever you’re going. Once we went through there on our way to another remote small town, Paducah, for a religious service held by a preacher we knew. Another time we took our Tennesee relatives on a tour of this area and went through it.

Imagine mile upon mile upon mile of rolling, occasionally hilly but mostly rolling, reddish landscape with mostly scrub cedar, with an occasional “regular” type tree thrown in. Ranch headquarters so far off the road you don’t even see people. Some oil pumps and natural gas tanks. Very few vehicles on the roads. Vultures circling endlessly, etc. But it is quiet and natural and it is “God’s Country”.

But “the children” can’t wait to leave for the wider world...

Wyoming was the highest percent Romney state at 69.3%. In 13 Counties(of 23) he got over 75% of the vote. Similarly, Obama got the lowest % there. The three most North East counties got over 84% of the vote to Romney.
