Obama Probability of Re-Election Bounces Back
President Obama's probability of winning 270 votes in the Electoral College has hit 86.3% in his latest forecast, nearly recovering to his previous high of 87%.
"Obama unlikely to win by anything like his post-DNC margins. But Romney has no momentum, Obama's state polling is robust, and time is up."
http://fivethirtyeight.blogs.nytimes.com/
Larry Sabato also forecasts an Obama electoral vote win, 290 to 248.

Florida was once a great State, on track to get a modern public transportation system. Up to 1999 our State was fiscally sound. Why? Florida had only had two Republican Governors since 1885. Then came Jeb Bush. His first act was bullying voters into taking back the mandate for public transportation, then he lined his buddies pockets with the disaster relief of 2004/05. After 12 years of Republican misrule our State is broke. It is safe to say that Florida is the most crooked state in the Union now. We are dealing with

- shameless disaster and public contract profiteering
- election fraud on a level only known in banana republics
- citizens have to jump through hoops to get unemployment which they paid for.
- petty-felons have to fight to get their civil rights reinstated.
- a governor who acts like a feudal overlord
- suggestive constitutional amendments to allow Scott to fire and appoint judges
- the governor's wife owns the companies that carries out mandatory drug testing
- record levels of uninsured, with Scott not accepting Federal money to help
- record levels of unemployment, homelessness, and foreclosures
- property and local taxes going up by the year while property values tank
- politicians lining their pockets (Rubio, Sansom, etc)

We can thank the GOP for the successful Jamaicanization of our State. I only hope that these people standing in line at their polling stations realize what's going on in our state and make the right decision.

Yesterday, there was chaos in Miami-Dade County, Florida where Governor Rick Scott suspended in-person absentee voting because too many people were waiting to vote. And that was only after early voting lines lasted upwards of six hours and were shut down at the designated 1 p.m. closing time. A six hour long line in the hot Miami sun just to cast a ballot. After social media exploded in protest, Scott allows the in-person absentee vote to continue. But this only a cursory victory for voting rights because absentee ballots, unlike the early votes during normal polling hours, are too often rejected for errors.
And here’s a shocker. The Miami Herald reported on Saturday that 187,000 more Democrats than Republicans had voted. If you’re Rick Scott, there’s a clear political motivation to block that progress.
In Ohio, secretary of state Jon Husted, who’s been the most obsessive vote-suppressor of any Republican official in the nation, tossed another wrench in the works the other day by ordering the rejection of provisional ballots that do not correctly list the form of photo ID presented to poll workers. Prior to this new Husted rule, filling in the ID information was the job of the poll worker and now the risk of mistake increases exponentially. If the slightest error is made, the entire provisional ballot will be discarded. Potentially hundreds of thousands of provisional ballots could be rejected. This knife in the back of Ohio voters is only the latest attempt by Husted to disenfranchise voters, specifically Democratic voters, in the swingiest of the swing states — the state that will absolutely decide who will win on Tuesday.
Suffice to say, Rick Scott and Jon Husted ought to be sanctioned by the Justice Department for civil rights violations under the Voting Rights Act. From Rick Scott to Rick Perry, to Pennsylvania governor Tom Corbett to South Carolina governor Nikki Haley to Jon Husted, their only goal is to preserve the white, wealthy, conservative power structure.
But this is only an extension of a core tenet of the Republican Party: it simply does not want people to vote. The more voters there are, the less likely Republicans will win. Especially now with a growing minority population.
Here’s the founder of the Heritage Foundation and the Moral Majority, Paul Weyrich, in 1980 laying it out in simple terms.
http://www.youtube.com/watch...
“I don’t want everybody to vote. Elections are not won by a majority of the people. They never have been from the beginning of our country and they are not now. As a matter of fact, our leverage in the elections quite candidly goes up as the voting populace goes down.”.......
It’s difficult to know whether voter disenfranchisement will ultimately swing tomorrow’s results, but the Republicans are trying really, really hard to make it so. And yet the Republicans somehow continue to be treated with seriousness and respect in spite of their obviously nefarious means.
http://thedailybanter.com/2012/11/six-hour-li...
But, they get away with it without consequences. In this case I tend to agree with Carol; get your vote in on time to avoid these issues, because we know the Republicans will use any opportunity to suppress the voters; they know they are Democrats.

The mau mau fluking slut picks up hitchhikers for good luck

Men fear women in Zimbabwe after spate of rapes to harvest their sperm
Friday, March 23, 2012
Daily Mail ^| 03/23/2012

Gangs of beautiful women in Zimbabwe have been picking up male hitchhikers to have sexual intercourse and harvest their sperm for use in traditional luck-enhancing 'juju' rituals, according to local media reports. Local woman, Susan Dhliwayo, claims she pulled her car over recently to pick up a group of male hitchhikers and they refused to get in, because they feared they were going to be raped.

Good morning, Carol
Depends on WHICH multiple sources I suppose. And the projection of the writer.

I dislike numbers....they can all be manipulated, bent, and even tampered with. I just hope the vote count comes out fair and square, I could care less about polls.

You all just need to take a friggin' pill.
"A judge has ordered an early-voting site in central Florida to stay open an additional four hours Sunday following lawsuits filed by the state Democratic party.
The judge ordered the polling site in Orange County to extend its hours because it was shut down Saturday while authorities investigated a suspicious package.
Voting in Miami-Dade County didn't conclude until about 1 a.m. Sunday because voters standing in line when the polls closed were allowed to vote.
The Orange County site is a library in the city of Winter Park. The suspicious package turned out to be a cooler."

Obama's last message to the voters:

Get some revenge.

Yeah, like they're not the party of blind hatred.

We're going to get some sanity back in our government.

No more running guns for Mexican drug cartels.
No more killing Americans in our embassies.
No more stuffing the pockets of Demcorat cronies with money the economy desperately needs.
No more surrendering to the muslim terrorists.

And, no more being embarrassed in front of the entire world when the president spews obvious lies to the world.... among a plethora of other embarrassments Obama caused.

Nonsense. The free market capitalist system created a prosperous middle class. Democrats smothered it with extortion, taxes and regulation.
Democrats are 100% responsible for the sub prime housing balloon and the subsequent collapse of the financial sector by blackmailing bankers into issuing trillions in loans to minorities or face the charge of racism. The Kenyan's communist coup made the economy worse.
No, you little man, free market did NOT create a middle class. Unions did. Before unions workers has nothing including no pay . The unions allowed the middle class to be created. Didn't matter if a person was a union member or not, their pay was based on what the union guy got. The Republican Party has been pickling away at the overthrow of unions for 30 years now. The same graph chart that shows union decline matches the same chart that shows middle class decline.
.
The Rich will bring back jobs to America when the American workers agree to the same as China..30 cents/hr, 16 hour days. no overtime, no health, no safety, no retirement, no chance of moving up.
