  • 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...

    President Obama promised change, but he could not deliver it. I promise change, and I have a record of achieving it. This is why I am running for president. I know how to change the course the nation is on, how to get us to a balanced budget and how to build jobs and rising take-home pay. Accomplishing real change is not something I just talk about--it is something I have done. And it is what will do when I am President of the United States. If you believe we can do better, if you believe America should be on...
  • Vanity: Billy Cunningham on Hannity Predicts Ohio for Romney

    11/02/2012 6:17:42 PM PDT · by ConservativeMan55 · 21 replies
    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%.

    Imagine going to vote for your presidential candidate and pushing the button on a touch-screen voting machine -- but the "X" marks his opponent instead. 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...

    In the United States, Nevada has produced the same outcome as the national results in every presidential election beginning in 1912, except in 1976, thus voting for the winner 96.0% of the time. Ohio is the second closest with a match rate of 93.1%. Missouri, often referred to as the Missouri bellwether, was for many years the best match of the national results, but since 2008 is now third closest with a 92.6% match rate. 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...

    This is the president of the United States making his final case to the American people: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6ZHMsivjr04 That’s the best he can do? “Voting is the best revenge”? And against whom should voters seek “revenge” — other Americans? A candidate who has the support of about half the electorate? It is mind-boggling, really, that this sort of snide, negative motivation is what President Obama has saved up for his final appeal. But that’s really been the story of his campaign all along. Carpet-bomb Mitt Romney with negative ads during the summer and then make the last week of the campaign...

    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.

    PERRYSBURG, OH— Pulling into the parking lot at Owens Community College in Perrysburg Thursday, I briefly wondered if I was in the right spot. I cruised through a roundabout, in the shadow of a painted silo and a giant windmill— the tableau of rural past and green energy future no doubt a deliberate backdrop for an Obama campaign event featuring former President Bill Clinton. The rock star of the campaign trail was still on his way as one straggling supporter from nearby Maumee and I squinted at each other’s smartphone maps to locate the rally. We found the school’s half-full...

    Rasmussen Reports ^ | 2 November 2012 | Scott Rasmussen
    With four days to go, President Obama and Mitt Romney are tied in the critical battleground state of Ohio. 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. (To see survey question wording, click here.) Ohio remains one of eight Toss-Up states in the Rasmussen Reports Electoral College Projections. Obama won the Buckeye State in 2008 by a 52% to 47% margin. At the beginning of the week, Romney held a slight 50% to 48% advantage. It was...

  • Early Vote Down 15 Percent in Cleveland, Cincinnati

    11/02/2012 7:40:47 AM PDT · by MNDude · 18 replies
    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...

Therefore, I wouldn't call this mere speculation.snip/quote from article ...“I would just say that this is a potential nightmare-in-waiting,” says Blackwell. Blackwell believes that could result in an unprecedented number of provisional ballots being filed – some 250,000 or more. Such a large number of ballots being held, presumably under armed guard, for 10 days...

    The 2012 election will usher in a new administration, and they will win in a landslide. While even dyed-in-the-wool Obama supporters are willing to admit that Romney will likely win 50% of the popular vote, they are just as quick to point to the 2000 election and the President’s current lead in the Electoral College. 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...

    MANSFIELD NORTH CENTRAL OHIO TEA PARTY ASSOCIATION PROTEST PRESIDENT OBAMA OVER HIS ACTIONS INVOLVING THE BENGHAZI TERRORIST ATTACK On Friday, November 2, President Obama will speak at Lima Senior High School. We, along with several Ohio Patriot groups will peacefully protest this appearance. We were ready for him on Wednesday, but he cancelled because he had to play Weatherman-In-Chief. The reason for our protest is to make the public aware of the Obama Administration’s incompetence in its handling of the Benghazi terrorist attack in which FOUR Americans lost their lives. The Mainstream Media is not covering this story, so it’s...
