To the poster, Romney-Ryan 2012, I wasn't trying to correct you about most of the 47% being victims.

Too many have grown accustomed to dependency and government victimization. Which is what I believe you were saying and, of course, that's the problem.

Philly GOP: Poll inspectors being ousted for Dems

November 6, 2012 | 8:31 am

Court-appointed Republican poll inspectors are being forcibly removed from voting stations in some Philadelphia wards and replaced in some cases by Democratic inspectors and even members of the Black Panthers, according to GOP officials.

Secrets just received this memo from GOP officials:

The Philadelphia GOP is reporting that court appointed Minority (read GOP) Inspectors are being thrown out of polling locations in several Wards.

These Inspectors are election officials - again, court appointed -- and are reportedly being thrown out by the Head Judges of Elections (these Judges are elected Democrats) and being replaced by Democrats.

This has happened at the following locations:

Ward 32, Div 13

Ward 43, Div 14

Ward 56, Div 1

Ward 56, Div 22

Ward 32, Div 28

Ward 32, Div 28

Ward 12, Div 17

Ward 39, Div 1

Ward 24, Div 9

Ward 18, Div 25

Ward 43, Div 14

Ward 29, Div 18

Ward 65, Div 19

Ward 20, Div 1

Ward 6, Div 11

Another official told Secrets: "one of our female inspectors was physically thrown out."

Presidential candidate Mitt Romney decided at the last minute to make stops in Pennsylvania, believing that the race there was close enough that he could win.

fear voter suppression??

The Democrats know that if they don't get out the vote in huge numbers then the Republicans will try to pull a fast one. It has happened twice, and look who we ended up with; Bush for two terms.
And, we the people say Hell No!!

He just wanted liberals to know they were freaking out about nothing again - as usual.

If anything, Romney is much more about peace than war by his nature.

But peace through strength. Which makes a whole lot of sense.

Anybody see the president and Romney speak at halftime on the Monday night football game?

The president was cool, calm, collected, smiling, you know presidential.

Romney looked like a meth head searching for his next score.

On our ballot in Florida they are trying to take away rights of women in Ammendment 6
Trying to get public funds diverted to churches; ammendment 8

It never ends; in addition, Rick Scott put 3 Supreme Court Justices on the ballot to be retained or not; if he has his way, this will be a dictatorship.

You first have to come up with some proof that Romney ever mentioned or even implied going to war with anyone.

He'd rather have a strong military to prevent it.

But that's probably too hard to grasp for most liberals.

Each one of your statements is incorrect.
Romney pretty much agreed with President Obama's strategies on the Middle East in the last debate. He has not said a word about starting a war with anyone. Obama said all options are on the table if Iran develops a nuclear weapon which is also what Romney said.
Romney wants to give the abortion issue back to the states to decide. It might mean a road trip for women who really want an abortion but it also will curb irresponsible behavior because of the inconvenience.
Besides, a lot of abortion centers are nothing more than legalized butcher centers - some sterilized with qualified butchers - some not.
Romney/Ryan Medicare reform won't even kick in until 15 years down the road. However, Obama has already stolen over 700 million from Medicare to fund Obamacare. You'd think you'd be more concerned about how this is going to affect seniors right now.
Romney is a liar. Do you think that the American women are going to vote for a fast talking liar? "Of course I won't sign bills to overturn Roe v Wade, of course I believe in a womans right to choose; of course I don't believe a woman should have an abortion unless she is raped; I just chose a VP candidate who proposed Personhood, thereby outlawing contraception"
He has to be the biggest liar ever, and it doesn't matter to you rightwingers.

No dumb carol it actually makes no sense.
He's just a puppet like bush and would have been ordered by the tea baggers to attack Iran.

Thank god we will never know.
Obama has this locked up.

Yup. Thatís right. A landslide for Romney approaching the magnitude of Obamaís against McCain. Thatís my prediction. On Sunday, we changed our clocks. On Tuesday, weíll change our president. Romney will win the states McCain carried in 2008, plus: Florida, Indiana, Virginia, North Carolina, Colorado, Iowa, Ohio, New Hampshire, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin and Minnesota. In the popular vote, Romney will win by more than 5 points.
