  • More Than A Dozen Fisker Karma Hybrids Caught Fire And Exploded In New Jersey Port After Sandy

    11/01/2012 11:13:21 AM PDT · by Red Badger · 67 replies
    Jalopnik ^ | Nov 01,2012 | Staff
    Approximately 16 of the $100,000+ Fisker Karma extended-range luxury hybrids were parked in Port Newark, New Jersey last night when water from Hurricane Sandy’s storm surge apparently breached the port and submerged the vehicles. As Jalopnik has exclusively learned, the cars then caught fire and burned to the ground. Our source tells us they were “first submerged in a storm surge and then caught fire, exploded.” This wouldn’t be the first time the vehicles, which use a small gasoline engine to charge batteries that provide energy to two electric motors, had an issue with sudden combustion. The vehicle, despite only...

    In fiery speech, Giuliani calls on Obama to resign, faults him for Libya by CNN's Ashley Killough (CNN) - Not long after taking a few seconds of silence for those affected by Superstorm Sandy, Rudy Giuliani began ripping into President Barack Obama on Friday while speaking at major campaign event for Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan in Ohio. The former New York City mayor delivered a series of blistering zingers against the president, rallying the massive crowd with line after line of reasons why Obama should "resign" and faulting him for "incompetence" over the Libya consulate attacks.

    Obama took care to irradiate the swing states with his negative attacks on Romney. When the voters in those states saw that Mitt was not a Halloween monster but a pretty nice and reasonable guy, his negative stopped working and the states started falling to Romney. But in Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Minnesota, and Michigan, the negatives on Romney never ran. The only Romney they saw in these states was the very presentable and attractive one who showed up in the debates. So there was no obstacle to hold them back from voting for Mitt. Obama’s static dependence on the swing states...

    After reading some of the polls today I was feeling a little uneasy. But Billy Cunningham was just saying Ohio WILL go for Romney. He said all the legislators, the governor, the state is RED. It has always been a Republican state. Plus he said they couldn't get a crowd of 30 for John McCain in Ohio.. while Mitt is getting 30,0000. Take heart my friends! We can win this thing! Remember in 2004 polls showed John Kerry winning. LOL! Truth is we won't know until it's over.

    If you want to understand why voters no longer trust pollsters, look no further than the latest CNN poll of Ohio voters, showing President Barack Obama with a 50%-47% lead over Gov. Mitt Romney--a result that is within the poll’s 3.5% margin of error, but which suggests a slight Obama lead. The internal numbers reveal that Romney is leading among independents by 2%, and winning Election Day voters by a staggering 13%.

That is what some voters in Nevada, North Carolina, Texas and Ohio have reported. But in response to the growing number of complaints, the Republican National Committee has sent a letter to election officials in six states -- Ohio, Nevada, Kansas, North Carolina, Missouri and Colorado -- demanding tighter controls on touch-screen machines. Multiple voters from several states wrote Fox News to report problems similar to what Stevens reported. "While it is possible for a...

The American bellwether states (with respect to presidential elections) currently are: Nevada - 1 miss (1976) from 1912 on (96.0%, slightly "too Republican"). VERY SLIGHT...

    HILLARD, Ohio, Nov. 2 (UPI) -- President Barack Obama told supporters in Ohio Friday GOP nominee Mitt Romney is trying to scare auto workers with an ad two U.S. automakers have called false. Obama attacked a Romney radio ad that accused the administration of selling out Chrysler employees, CNN reported. The ad says the president sold the company to Italians -- the Italian automaker Fiat is now the majority owner -- who plan to move Jeep production from the United States to China.

The latest Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of Likely Ohio Voters finds Obama and Romney each with 49% support. Two percent (2%) prefer some other candidate, while one percent (1%) is undecided.

    On the Thursday before Election Day in 2008, 4,583 people voted early in Cuyahoga County, Ohio, which includes Cleveland. This was a stronghold for the Obama campaign; on Election Day, Obama carried the county 69 percent to 30 percent for John McCain. Yesterday 2,963 people voted. Again, some of that may be because of people being preoccupied with cleaning up storm damage, etc. But overall, by this point in 2008, 39,110 Cuyahoga County residents had voted early. As of Thursday, 33,140 have — about a 15 percent drop. And note that the early voting was ahead of the 2008 pace...

    The 2012 election will usher in a new administration, and they will win in a landslide.

While this loyalty is commendable, the cognitive dissidence it requires is shameful. Romney will win this election in a landslide in both popular vote and Electoral College vote; with at least 54% of the popular vote and over 300 votes in the Electoral College. The...

    Barack Obama is clearly winning the early vote in Ohio. But careful analysis of the actual numbers so far suggest very good news for Mitt Romney. The Romney campaign claims the president is merely banking votes he would have received on Election Day anyway, so his early lead isn’t very important. They say their early voting strategy relies on targeting low-voting-propensity Romney supporters for early voting and leaving the others to turn out on Election Day. In other words, they claim Obama’s effort is merely harvesting votes while theirs is creating votes. This approach makes sense, but it’s hard to...

In the forty states where the Obama campaign has not spread toxic negative ads against Romney, the Republican is gaining by leaps and bounds and will likely carry a bunch of “non-swing” normally blue states. Specifically, Romney is now three points ahead in Pennsylvania, one point behind in Michigan, and only two points behind in Wisconsin and Minnesota. Together, these four...

    Barack Obama believes he can take Ohio voters for fools. His “I saved GM from bankruptcy” was his first whopper. As if that was not enough, Obama, aided and abetted by Bill Clinton in Charlotte, conceived an even bigger whopper: “I saved the entire U.S. auto industry.” These two claims were supposed to assure Obama Ohio’s electoral votes with its 76,000 jobs in motor vehicle assembly and manufacture of bodies, trailers and parts. November 6 will show that Ohio voters have too much common sense to be taken in by Obama’s whoppers. Obama’s claim that he saved GM from bankruptcy...

    Supporters of Barack Obama may be breathing a little easier this morning as Public Policy Polling show the president with a 51-47 advantage over Republican challenger Mitt Romney. The new numbers come a day after Ohio news organizations showed a dead heat at 49-49 according to their data. What the previous poll did not show was the result of the third, and final, debate between the two men who are battling for residency for four years in the White House. Last week, PPP showed Obama leading only 49-48. [Snip] PPP surveyed 718 likely voters throughout the Buckeye State. The...

    Every major poll has Barack Obama leading Mitt Romney in the pivotal state of Ohio.In the last 70 years Ohio has selected the winner EVERY year except in 1960. This year should be no different. Now I am born and raised in Ohio and have spent OVER 50 years here. I doubt seriously that NO person who understands investing ,predicting the future and knows more about Ohio politics than me. First question is why is the national media polls (even Fox )all showing Mr Obama with a lead or a tie? It is simple and you can decide for yourself...

    I really wish all of you who subscribe to TownHall Magazine would contact them and complain about what’s been going on over at HotAir.com lately; for those who don’t know, TownHall owns HotAir and pays the writers there VERY nice salaries to do what they do…which in the case of a few of them includes churning out fear porn. This is normally Allahpundit’s role at that site but today Jazz Shaw joined in, needlessly freaking people out with the article “This Thing May Not Be Over on 11/6!!!!!!!!!!!!!!” This is madness. And it needs to stop. First, I’ll tell you...

    I suppose I should feel a little bit guilty for saying it, particularly on the pages of a politically oriented publication, but I'm pretty tired of this election. It's been going on roughly since Christmas of 2008 --- or at least it feels that way. The GOP primary was actually pretty good this year and it revved up both my interest and enthusiasm far more than the parade of munchkins on both sides four years earlier. But once it was done, the whole thing began to feel like one, long tedious slog through the summer and an exhausting swamp march...
