Video: Republican Party Training ‘Poll Challengers’ In Illegal Voter Suppression
New Mexico has started its own voter purge of 177,000 people, including a voting rights activist married to a state representative. However, as the law won’t go into effect until November 2014, the local Republican Party has apparently started training “poll challengers” for this election. A hidden camera caught Pat Morlen, the vice chair of the Sandoval County Republican Party, instructing volunteer “poll challengers” to demand photo ID and force legal voters to use provisional ballots. The video, filmed by the nonprofit ProgressNow New Mexico, shows vice-chair Morlen making several claims that directly contradict New Mexico law.

That's how we all know they think Romney is losing.
Otherwise....why cheat?
Yep,

There is NO voter fraud ever. It is just a ploy to keep minority and poor voters away from the poles.

LAS CRUCES — A former Sunland Park city employee has been placed on probation after pleading guilty to voter fraud charges.
Priscilla Morales, who worked as a secretary, admitted to false voting and conspiracy to commit a crime.

Prosecutors said Morales, an El Paso resident who no longer works for Sunland Park, registered to vote in Doña Ana County, and voted in Sunland Park's municipal elections on March 6.

Morales used former City Councilor Angelica Marquez's home address in Sunland Park to register for the city's elections, prosecutors said.

She entered her plea Aug. 29 in 3rd Judicial District Court in Las Cruces.

District Judge Jacinto Palomino placed Morales, 26, on 18 months of probation, with conditions that she complete 40 hours of community service, undergo drug and alcohol screening, comply with warrantless searches, and maintain full-time employment.

If Morales fails to comply with the terms of her probation, she could be resentenced, and serve up to three years in jail, according to prosecutors.

Assistant District Attorney Steven E. Blankenship said he expects to subpoena Morales to testify at Marquez's trial. Marquez, 41, is facing charges of false swearing (municipal election code) and conspiracy to commit a crime.

Marquez has two other pending criminal cases in which she is charged with extortion, conspiracy and demanding and receiving a bribe by a public official. She is accused of participating in an alleged extortion plot against former mayoral candidate Gerardo Hernandez to blackmail him with a video showing him with a topless dancer.
At least six other people are currently facing voter fraud charges related to the Sunland Park municipal elections, including former senior center director Silvia Gomez; Jesus Dario Hernandez, the former public works director; and Luz Vargas, the former director of the Sunland Park Community Library.

Vargas, 56, is scheduled to be arraigned Monday in District Court.

It would amaze you how many voters we have in Norther New Mexico over the age of 100.

I didn't watch much, saw the 'big bird' segment and Romney did appear to be a spoiled arrogant bullying rich kid when dealing with Lehrer. Very disrespectful. But rightwingers love that stuff so it probably went over great with his base.

Come on Fred, give me some specifics once.
ABC: Obama Falsely Claims He Has a Plan to Cut $4 Trillion from the Deficit


“I’ve put forward a specific $4 trillion deficit-reduction plan,”

President Obama said during his debate with Mitt Romney on Wednesday night.“It’s on a website. You can look at all the numbers, what cuts we make and what revenue we raise.”

ABC’s Jon Karl correctly calls Obama’s claim “mostly fiction.”

Does President Obama have a plan to cut the deficit by $4 trillion?

No. The “$4 trillion plan” he is referring to includes about $1 trillion Congress has already agreed to and $1 trillion in savings from ending the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, which are already ending.

This would be Mostly Fiction.

The Washington Post’s Glenn Kessler has also noted Obama’s claim is “simply not accurate,” and pointed out that “virtually no serious budget analyst agreed” with the administration’s accounting.

Fifty-four percent of American adults approve of President Barack Obama’s job performance, according to Gallup’s daily tacking poll released Thursday.

That’s not only Obama’s high-water mark for 2012, it’s also his highest approval rating in Gallup’s tracking since November of 2009. It also shows 42 percent give Obama negative marks for his job performance, matching his lowest disapproval rating for 2012.

<quoted text>I knew what you were saying, evidently you don't understand much anyone else says. Maybe god doesn't take kindly to being asked to aid in causing death? "On December 9, 1945, Patton was severely injured in a car accident. He and his chief of staff, General Hobart R. Hap Gay, were on a one day trip to hunt pheasants in the country outside Mannheim General Patton was leaving on the next day to fly home on vacation and was considering either resigning or retiring from the army. Their 1938 Cadillac 75 was driven by Private First Class Horace Woodring (1926–2003), with Patton sitting in the back seat on the right side, with General Gay on his left, as per custom. At 11:45 near Neckarstadt (Mannheim), a 2½ ton GMC truck driven by Technical Sergeant Robert L. Thompson made a left turn in front of Patton's Cadillac. Patton's car hit the front of the truck, at a low speed.General Patton 1938 Cadillac
The accident seemed to be of a minor nature as General Patton’s vehicle was only damaged in the front, though not drivable, and the 2 1/2 ton truck showed almost no damage. Damage to Patton CadillacNo one in the truck was hurt, and Gay and Woodring were uninjured. However, General Patton was leaning back with trouble breathing. The general had been thrown forward almost 5 feet in the spacious rear seat area and his head struck a metal part of the partition between the front and back seats, incurring a cervical spinal cord severance injury. General Patton was conscience and aware of his circumstances. Understanding many things and not having much time, he asked that no one be charged in the accident. General Patton was rushed to the 130th U.S. Army station hospital 25 miles away at 12 45 pm. Paralyzed from the neck down, he was rushed to the military hospital in Heidelberg, Germany. Patton was examined by Hospital Commander, Col. Lawrence C. Ball and Chief Surgeon Lt .Col. Paul S. Hill. He had a barley readable pulse of 45bpm and barley obtainable blood pressure of 86/60. Col. Spurling, one of the Army’s top neurosurgeons was summoned from the states and flown to Heidelberg. Accompanying him was Beatrice Patton. After her arrival Beatrice Patton read to her “George” every day and watch as he slowly began to slip away. On the morning of the 21st, General Patton was cheerful but his vital signs showed continued pulmonary distress. Beatrice spent most of the afternoon reading to him. At about 5: 15 p.m. he had fallen asleep. Beatrice left for supper alone with Dr. Spurling and Dr. Hill. At 6 pm Dr. Duanne summoned them back. By the time they arrived, Patton had finished his final battle and passed on to be with the Lord. The official cause of death was “pulmonary edema and congestive heart failure.” The final entry in his log read “1755 hours expired.”

He lamented Obama's performance: "I don't know what he was doing out there. He had his head down, he was enduring the debate rather than fighting it. Romney, on the other hand, came in with a campaign. He had a plan, he was going to dominate the time, he was going to be aggressive, he was going to push the moderator around, which he did effectively, he was going to relish the evening, enjoying it."

Axelrod:... this was the first chance for the president to see how Romney operates firsthand and you have to make some adjustments for the fact that he is kind of a serial evader and artful dodger and that makes it more challenging. The thing I think, and this relates to last question as well, is the president hopes to avoid a situation where two politicians are standing there insulting each other instead of offering ideas for the future of the country. But you have to strike a balance, you can't let someone basically manhandle the truth and not deal with that, so I'm sure that is a takeaway from this debate.
