uh oh

To be exceptionally clear: I do not mean to imply that the polls are biased in Mr. Obama’s favor. But there is the chance that they could be biased in either direction. If they are biased in Mr. Obama’s favor, then Mr. Romney could still win; the race is close enough. If they are biased in Mr. Romney’s favor, then Mr. Obama will win by a wider-than-expected margin, but since Mr. Obama is the favorite anyway, this will not change who sleeps in the White House on Jan. 20.

My argument, rather, is this: we’ve about reached the point where if Mr. Romney wins, it can only be because the polls have been biased against him. Almost all of the chance that Mr. Romney has in the FiveThirtyEight forecast, about 16 percent to win the Electoral College, reflects this possibility.

Yes, of course: most of the arguments that the polls are necessarily biased against Mr. Romney reflect little more than wishful thinking.

Nevertheless, these arguments are potentially more intellectually coherent than the ones that propose that the race is “too close to call.” It isn’t. If the state polls are right, then Mr. Obama will win the Electoral College. If you can’t acknowledge that after a day when Mr. Obama leads 19 out of 20 swing-state polls, then you should abandon the pretense that your goal is to inform rather than entertain the public.

But the state polls may not be right. They could be biased. Based on the historical reliability of polls, we put the chance that they will be biased enough to elect Mr. Romney at 16 percent.

Romney is walking around with a permanent grin. Untrustworthy, like all salesmen. Whe he gets in front of a crowd, he's uncomfortable. Like he has a permanent b$tt plug in place.

The latest Harper's magazine contains a disturbing cover story titled "How to Rig an Election: The GOP Aims to Paint the Country Red." It alleges that certain Republican insiders around America electronically manipulate touch-screen voting machines and ballot-counting computers to falsify election returns.

The long article begins by recounting historic U.S. election frauds, many of them committed by Democrats. But it says a "red shift" has occurred, with modern ballot thievery mostly attributed to Republicans. The prestigious magazine explains:

"Two major events have paved the way for this lethal form of election manipulation: the mass adoption of computerized voting technology, and the outsourcing of our elections to a handful of corporations that operate in the shadows, with little oversight or accountability."

Leaders of America's election computer firms include some far-right political zealots and some outright crooks, the report says, adding:

"Many of the staffers behind our major voting-machine companies have been accused or convicted of a dizzying array of white-collar crimes, including conspiracy, bribery, bid-rigging, computer fraud, tax fraud, stock fraud, mail fraud, extortion and drug trafficking."

Harper's lists scandals linked to Diebold, Sequoia, Election Systems & Software, Dominion and other firms. It also lists 2008 and 2010 state-level elections where polls had predicted easy Democratic victories, but tallies from electronic machines mysteriously gave "upsets" to Republicans.

And it lists states and foreign nations that have banned various electronic systems as untrustworthy. For example, it says Ireland spent $70 million for paperless machines -- but sold them as scrap in June for $92,000.

Sure moron, it's all Obama's fault that a super storm smashed into the Middle Atlantic and cut off power. I'm sure that Romney would have stood there and scared the storm away.
You're an idiot!
It's IS Obama's fault that FEMA didn't show up for nearly AN ENTIRE WEEK, that non-union volunteers are being turned away and that there is no food or water and the shortage of gasoline is due to Obama's EPA policies. This is worse than Obama's Katrina, this is Obama's Armageddon! Obama has really dropped the ball this time. Scores of people have already died and the toll keeps rising. He should be charged with criminal negligence due to his incompetence and arrogance during this national disaster. He should be charged with the crime of accessory to murder of the four Diplomats in Libya as well.
