It's all over but the shouting now...
No matter who wins this election. The country needs to support the winner... not like the republicans did in 2008...
Obama or Romney he is the President of all of us and he is an American.. If your an American you will support the winner.We all must demand congress work together to decide the best way forward with the best ideas of both sides
You sound like that guy who says stuff like if you don't support the president you are somehow anti-American. Sorry, but if the president's a bum I'm not going to support him.

Deja-Vu..once again the Black Panther's are "monitoring" the polls in Philly and other major cities.
Poll watchers from groups ostensibly targeting voter fraud are headed primarily to minority voting precincts on Election Day, lending support to the argument that their real goal is to suppress the African-American and Latino vote.

A partial list of precincts targeted by a Pittsburgh Tea Party group working on behalf of the Republican Party shows that nearly 80 percent of the voters in those precincts are African-American, compared to 13 percent countywide, according to civil rights and union groups who on Monday called on the U.S. Department of Justice to investigate.

An Ohio political blog is reporting that forms submitted to election officials by Tea Party spin-off group True the Vote in Franklin County -- which includes Columbus -- show poll watchers heading to 28 precincts, where most voters are African-American. Overall, the county electorate is 20 percent African-American.

"We've been concerned from the beginning that the efforts of True the Vote and aligned groups were going to be targeted largely in communities of color," said Eric Marshall, manager of legal mobilization for the Lawyers' Committee for Civil Rights Under Law. "We've seen in the past where these kinds of tactics can lead to intimidation and harassment of voters."

That's my good Obamabot! Talk is cheap. I said I would work across the isle, but then as soon as I took office, I subverted the legislative and constitutional process. It's like the other day when I was talking about the storm, I said, we don't leave anyone behind. It tool a lot of balls for me to say that when I just left four people in Libya to die.
But that's OK. We are Democrats. We can say crap without meaning it at all. We can lie if the ends justify the means.
Viote for me so we all can have a lower standard of living and continue with America in decline.
Thanks for beiong one of my craziest supportes. It lasted only four years but we sure did a lot of damage and got some revenge.
Barry.
that says it all! What a disappointment this man has been. To all races, to all Americans.

When it comes to photo ID laws, Republicans at least have the outward semblance of an argument: they're trying to prevent voter fraud. There's no evidence of more than a tiny handful of people ever committing the kind of fraud that photo ID would stop, but at least it's an argument. But pair that up with the recent jihad against early voting hours, and even the pretense of an argument goes away. There's nothing these two things have in common except for their unusually negative impact on demographic groups—including blacks, Hispanics, students, and the poor—that tend to vote for Democrats. It's the GOP's last-ditch effort to stave off demographic apocalypse.

Is there any kind of silver lining here? Probably not, but if there is one, it's this: it might backfire. The GOP has been so ravenous in its desire to suppress the vote of groups it doesn't like that it might make them more motivated than ever to vote. We'll see.

Why do you think Bush let those guys off the hook?
Give your lying ass a rest Sonic. It was O'bama that refused to try them after being arrested by the Bush administration. The Justice Department filed civil charges of voter intimidation in January 2009 under the Voting Rights Act (the Bush Administration, which filed the charges in its last hours), against King Samir Shabazz, Jerry Jackson, the New Black Panther Party and Malik Zulu Shabazz. They won the case by default in April 2009 when the defendants did not appear in court. But DOJ officials under the Obama Administration decided to drop most of the charges, saying the evidence did not substantiate the allegations that votes were suppressed.

The kind who believes Christ came into the world to bring a message of God's hope, peace, love, mercy, compassion and forgiveness to a dying world. The "do unto others as you would have them do unto you" kind.

You're thinking of the old south kind of Christian whose fruit was rotted on the vine. "You will know them by their fruits."

The Billy Graham part, I don't know what you're talking about.

Just one more (major) way the blacks are being used by the democrats. Affirmative action to create him, and while he was unqualified to attain the presidency, pull the strings of the puppet, and hollar RACISM at any and all criticism of their progressive liberal ideas.

Obama's Katrina

With temperatures dipping into the 30s overnight and close to 700,000 homes and businesses in New York City, its northern suburbs and Long Island still without electricity [now seven] days after the storm, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo warned that many homes are becoming uninhabitable and that tens of thousands of people are going to need other places to stay.

Fears of crime, especially at night in darkened neighborhoods, persisted. Officers in the Midland Beach section of Staten Island early Saturday saw a man in a Red Cross jacket checking the front doors of unoccupied houses and arrested him on a burglary charge.

After complaints about people posing as utility workers to gain access to people’s homes, police on Long Island reminded residents that most repair work will be done outside so legitimate workers usually have no need to enter a home.
