I figured I post a little feel good story for the folks here at CU



Voters have figured out that President Obama has no message, no agenda and not even much of an explanation for what he has done over the past four years. His campaign is based entirely on persuading people that Mitt Romney is a uniquely bad man, entirely dedicated to the rich, ignorant of the problems of the average person. As long as he could run his negative ads, the campaign at least kept voters away from the Romney bandwagon. But once we all met Mitt Romney for three 90-minute debates, we got to know him — and to like him. He was not the monster Obama depicted, but a reasonable person for whom we could vote.

As we stripped away Obama’s yearlong campaign of vilification, all the president offered us was more servings of negative ads — ads we had already dismissed as not credible. He kept doing the same thing even as it stopped working.The result was that the presidential race reached a tipping point. Reasonable voters saw that the voice of hope and optimism and positivism was Romney while the president was only a nitpicking, quarrelsome, negative figure. The contrast does not work in Obama’s favor.


His erosion began shortly after the conventions when Indiana (10 votes) and North Carolina (15) moved to Romney (in addition to the 179 votes that states that McCain carried cast this year).

I heard the strangest thing today...that Romney is leading early voting by 51 to 46. No idea how true it is or who came to that conclusion.

If it's even remotely true Barry is in a world of shit. :biggrin-new:

I believe Gallup posted the numbers, but yeah that's the word. Romney has a solid lead in early votes.

Early voting was Barry's thing in 2008. If he is really getting creamed in early voting right now that is incredibly good news.

Romney will win the election with 272 EC's against obama's 266 ... You are not taking into account the 47% of retards who would vote for a pickle if it was running as a Dem.

That's one of the best descriptions of the voting habits of some of the dems. I think a pickle would be better than Obama----at least it would do no harm. :biggrin-new:

Didn't a Dem win re-election several years ago - even though he had already died? Was it in CA?

I remember when then Governor Carnahan of Missouri won election to the senate after he was dead. His wife, the "lovely" Mrs Carnahan, took his place. There were a lot of shenanigans but Ashcroft was a gentleman and didn't contest the election. He should have. I remember that the dems got the polls in the City of St Louis to stay open hours after the polls closed elsewhere in the state. They were bussing the people in. It was a blot on Missouri history.

Dick Morris is routinely wrong and one of the worst pundits ever. Why people think he has much credibility is beyond me. What he predicts is usually a good indicator the other side is not only winning but dominating.

It just goes to show how stupid liberal voters are.

It was the Missouri situation that SLW summarized. Carnahan died, and he won the election anyways, so they put his wife in the seat.

He won by a narrow margin, after some really questionable votes in the city of St Louis. There were lots of dead folk voting for the dead guy.

Luckily she only had a 2 year term and was defeated at the next election. Jean Carnahan was quite the liberal. I'm trying to remember why she was only in there for 2 years.

This is just a guess, but perhaps it was because she wasn't the candidate on the ballot, so they decided to have another election the next federal election cycle, which would be 2 years?

Didn't Morris predict a win for McCain in 2008 or am I remembering that wrong? Either way, I think this is a bit of wishful thinking. The early indicators are looking positive for Romney, especially in early voting which was Obama's strong point. However, it's far from a lock yet and if Romney does win I doubt it'll be with more than 300 electoral votes.
