Tonight Romney will give a simultaneous acceptance and concession speech taking both sides one last time.
When Obama loses he will blame his loss, as well as the American Civil War and the Spanish American War, on George Bush.

“Is that all you've got?”

Your statement that " Black Panthers and other liberal groups preparing God knows what if President Obama loses"
is utter nonsense and the usual rightwing propaganda promulgated to incite fear.
Why are you so afraid of everyone? Is it guilt because you know that you have disenfranchised people? Cheated them out of their rights? Afraid of Karma?


Didn't the New Black Panthers put a $10,000 reward out for George Zimmerman? Ironically the Black Panther leader offering the reward for the capture of the Trayvon Martin shooter was arrested on charges he is a felon who had a firearm. You got to love it.

Nothing could be worse than an unqualified president who is in over his head and leading this nation by the seat of his pants.
Agreed, we will both be voting for Obama.

The Democrats are sneaky & slimey so next time I'll have a motion detector and IR camera. I would enjoy having a Democrat arrested.

I will put a rat trap out there. That might get the Democrat.

Being angry and disappointed by venting that anger and disappointment is perfectly acceptable.
Screaming Bush stole the election for eight years, holding a grudge about it for eight years, calling people racists and every other name in the book and the Black Panthers and other liberal groups preparing God knows what if Obama loses is NOT acceptable.
We've had to educate each other from time to time over the past four years but since you're older than me, you should know the difference between acceptable and unacceptable expressions of handling disappointment.
Venting is not what I'm concerned about.
Very immature post Carol as well as completely false.

When I was leaving the polling place I stopped outside the door to text the wife about the time in line. As I was standing there a woman came busting out the door saying " They are going to tell me I can't vote! I gave them my drivers license and they asked me my address. I had moved so I told them the new address. They tell me I can't vote because the address I told them is not the address for my name."

Had to be a democrat.

Funny how the price of coal has dropped so far its almost not worth digging up any more. Big Al also made predictions of the super storms remember ? the fact that these once in a lifetime events are happening every year all over the world is just coincidence.
The US was a signee to the 2014 emmissions agreement, how is that going so far ? In the meantime more super storms, heatwaves, floods and being buried in snow. No nothing happening here, move along folks.

If he wins...
By Jennifer Rubin

If Mitt Romney wins we can look forward to:

Finding out what happened in Benghazi.

The mainstream media resuming an adversarial relationship with the White House.

Repudiation of Mediscare politics.

Democrats defending the Senate as a deliberative and properly obstructionist body.

Another barrier falling for a minority, this time religious, seeking the presidency.

A new wave of Hillarymania.

If President Obama wins we can look forward to:

Seeing what “more flexibility” regarding Russia means.

Joe Biden beginning his 2016 presidential campaign.

Watching Obama dodge Benghazi questions for many more months.

Sandra Fluke and Big Bird breathing a sigh of relief.

Obama finally going to Israel.

That Obama immigration reform push we’ve been waiting for.

I'm sure you were happy she couldn't vote. You are pathetic.

As a matter of fact in northeastern PA a lot of addresses including mine have just recently changed from RR's to street addresses so I expect it will be a common theme out my way.

Hello Flack, well, its voting day. We shall see what happens tonight. Its been a crazy few months, lots of tension over this election. As you know, I am an Obama supporter but unlike some of my fellow liberals, I won't be moving to Canada if Romney wins...
I feel what is most important for our Country is a change in consciousness, more empathy, less corruption. More unity, less divisiveness.
how have you been?
I have been great! Keeping the roads hot. I just hope the country survives no matter who wins. You take care of yourself hear!

America catches up to fred...Hindenburg homer has no conscience

BRENDAN O’NEILL: The Obama administration has been a colossal failure. Who in good conscience could vote for him again?

Well, nobody. Note this from O’Neill:“His administration has been as illiberal as Bush’s, if not more so. And far from reinvigorating politics, Obama has overseen an era in which political discourse in America has become coarser, more vindictive and more personality-based than it has been at any other point in history.”

Being a stand up citizen you told her to ask to file a provisional ballot, ask for the name of the person who turned her away, and told her to call 866-MYVOTE1? Right?

The head of Carol's "local" NBP is a cat named Mikhail Muhammed who lives in Jacksonville, his group consists of a few other guys from the S.E. US. Mikhail is a mild mannered father, ordained minister and military veteran who admits to using radical speech to make his point(s). I'm not even sure if he's got a rap sheet__if so it's for bs protesting related stuff.

Carol is a died in the wool racist, has been most__if not all her life.
