<quoted text>Follow it religiously. Why a compilation of polls is so strongly frowned upon by Republican members of this board? I found the process used by fivethirtyeight intriguing and well thought through.
And Nate doesn't even laugh at Rasmussen.

Did you see bill oreilly fawning over Mr Rasmussen on his show the other night?

He said repeatedly that they are the only polls he trusts. Cause they provide fox with skewed numbers to keep their sheep happy and fat.
Even though they have been proven to be one of the most unreliable polls by everyone except Fox News

Former Obama Supporters Back Romney This Time

http://www.jsonline.com/news/statepolitics/fo...

*****

In 2008, Matthew Brewer said he voted for hope, change and Barack Obama for president.

But this fall, he said, even though he said he doesn't agree with every policy proposed by Mitt Romney, he'll be voting for the Republican for president.

"I think he has the right skill set," Brewer said Thursday, as Romney's Wisconsin campaign rolled out what it called an advisory board of Wisconsin Democrats for Romney.

The group is comprised of 39 people from 29 cities. In a news release, the campaign said Wisconsin Democrats for Romney will bring together "a multitude of disenchanted Obama supporters who are not better off than they were four years ago."

Brewer, 49, an unemployed acoustic engineer from Spring Green, counts himself as one of those disenchanted with Obama, despite supporting him four years ago.

"He has been ineffective," Brewer said. He added that he doesn't have much hope for the Affordable Care Act, better known as Obamacare.

As I got older, Jane, I began to long for a man, and not just my Mom's juicy thighs. A man who was not intimidated by very strong women and who liked to bathe with them too. I actually thought it was going to be tough to find one that would agree to it, but it turned out it was simple so usually we'd get a dozen or more calls for one of our "hoseparties"

Very smart man that Colin Powell -
"You know, I voted for him in 2008 and I plan to stick with him in 2012, and I'll be voting for he and Vice President Joe Biden next month," he said on CBS' "This Morning."
Asked whether it was an endorsement, he said, "Yes."
Powell praised the president's handling of the economy and ending of the Iraq War.
"I think we ought to keep on the track we are on," he said.
Powell said he had the "utmost respect" for Mitt Romney, but criticized his tax plan.
Hard to argue with him on all acounts.
I still haven't come to a conclusion as to when Colin Powel chose to be a Marxist communist.

This poster is clearly suffering. Words of love were the only thing I could give him.
It's my nature to help people who are suffering.
So you and Romney are diametrically opposed to one another.

There are too many reasons to post. The number one is that he will appoint two more justices to the Supreme Court to ensure that womens rights remain intact. We don't want men to impose their religious fanaticism upon our lives and bodies.
We can thank the likes of those beasts Akin and Murdock for their rape comments; this has lighted a renewed fire among women; we are not going to be on trial for being rape victims; having to prove we've been raped. It's none of your effing business what we do and when we do it. Period. Women are in charge of their own lives.
It is 2012 and we are not going to go back to the 1950's.
THAT'S Number ONE!?!??! S Q U I R R E L!

Akin and Murdock are not running for pres. Your personal right to kill your li'l baby before it is born is NOT the number one issue facing the US right now.

Talk about tunnel vision and shortsightedness. I think you are just trying to distract from the real problems facing this citizenry right now. A few women will fall for it....MOST can think about more than one thing at a time and can prioritize.

Flu Vaccine Recall - All Vaccines Should be Recalled

Swiss pharmaceutical giant Novartis agreed to recall their Flu Shots after pressure from various nation’s government health agencies.

Yesterday, Italy banned the sale of the vaccines after finding “small particles” in the poison. I can only imagine what those “small particles” are? I will be keeping my eyes open and report it when I we find out.

And just today Germany banned the vaccine as well. I guess Germany has their own Vaccination Agency that handles this kind of thing.

horsecrap....the number of rapes is approximately 90,000 per year, with a pregnancy rate estimated between 2% and 5%...

so 1,800 to 4,500 rape-related pregnancies per year.....

Facts You Need To Know wrote:
What led to Romney's hatred for the 47%? Where does it come from? I think it comes from a very specific coupling of shame about his family story, a crippled and stunted personality, lifelong immaturity, a dark mean streak you mark down to chance and brain chemistry, and a sense of unbridled entitlement only the most wealthy Americans can acquire.
It makes for an extremely toxic mix of self-loathing and vicious hatred for the country he would lead. But wherever it comes from, there's one place it must never go, and that's the White House.
NOW TELL US WHY OBAMA HATES BLACKS AND THE poor EXPERT
