Or when your side tries to disallow the military vote, that is business as usual since the military vote tends to be Republican.
This is an old and thoroughly refuted GOP lie.

The only military ballots which were discounted were those which were submitted after deadline, or were not postmarked making it impossible to determine if they had met the deadline.

Grading signatures has the potential to be a biggie__there are legitimate reasons for signatures to become less legible. And then__who the fk is doing the grading???
Once again those contacted are pizzed__no fraud found__lawsuits to follow.
if the signature is questionable, simply contact the voter and confirm that they signed the ballot.....if they are still alive or still residents.....

Professors Ken Bickers and Michael Berry, of the University of Colorado, have a system for predicting the Electoral College outcomes of presidential races. Their model has accurately forecast the winner of every presidential race since 1980. According to an article published by UC-Boulder, they even got the Perot-flavored election of 1992, and the Bush-Gore photo finish in 2000, right.
This year, the Bickers-Berry model shows Mitt Romney winning with 320 electoral votes to Obama’s 218, with a 20-vote margin of error. A popular vote margin of 53-47 percent in Romney’s favor is predicted.
but who are they compared to some kid expert in baseball statistics beating off in his basement.....

they claim that Nate Whatshisname got 49 of 50 states correct in 2008....not really all that difficult since there were very few states in question....

If you believe that sex to be sinful, you must be celibate or fraught with guilt involving sexual conflicts. Say 10 hail Marys, cleanse yourself compulsively and flog yourself severely every time you think about sex.

Sometimes you can use caps and lower case type to undermine an argument or to make something disgusting appear more palatable than it really is. Want me to give you an example? Racism and death threats printed in the Queen's English do not mitigate the sentiments or the emotions behind them. Do you know where your children are... right now this second?

Yeah they remember what a lousy job Obama has done in the last for years.
This is the lie you parrots have been squawking the last four years.

The fact is, under Obama, the financial markets in free fall finally stabilized in March, 2009. AIG, General Motors and the Banks were bailed out. The rampant job losses of 500,000 per month under Bush hit a peak of 10% unemployment under Obama and has come down to 8%

Oh, let's not forget about the two unfinished wars Bush left behind, either.

As much as you GOP clowns hate it, GNP has been on a slow upward trend. And the DOW is up over 4,500 points.

So much for your "lousy job" assessment.

Christie is finished in politics unless he wants to pull an Arlen Spector......

appearing with Obama was fine, but slobbering him with praise was way over the line.....maybe Christie was suffering from lack of sleep or lack of food.....

too bad, really, but sometimes politicians make fatal errors.....

No shot, he's not even running ads here. Although some other groups are running negative ads pounding out lies about Obama, no mention whatsoever of their candidate's name.

Just because a post appears to say a particular thing does not necessarily mean that is the message. Take "breast knives" for instance. In some cases one might be inclined to view such a thing as threatening or even deadly. However, after some thought, one can imagine them as just really pointy breasts; an allusion or even a meataphor. Read with understanding. If you know that the poster in question is stoopid or illiterate then by all means take the words at face value. If, however, you suspect the poster has a different message in mind, clear your mind, eat a small piece of bread to clear your palate, and then read it again and see what you can see. Do you get it? Some people are cleverer than others and their minds work in different ways. That doesn't mean they're bad, or mean, or rude, it could just mean they're making fun of you, commiserating, even sympathizing. OK, class, read pages 300,012 through page 417,893 and be ready for a test in the morning. And now for my friend Homer....

The KKK was the terrorist arm of the South.
The South is now a virtual GOP block.
The South bolted from the northern Democrats and headed for the GOP in 1964 when Goldwater spoke out against civil rights. Not all at once, but the trend began there.
Enjoy your KKK, Mr. GOP hypocrite.
