Barack Obama, our next President

You're such a sterling citizen, Homer. If I saw a group of Romney supporters stranded on the side of the road, I would wonder how they'd spilled all the gasoline for the Caddies in the elevator?(I'd probably offer them a ride, but I'm not sure they'd feel all that comfortable in my Prius with the gun rack...)

Don't forget the Fiscal cliff is approaching in 3 mths time, now if Romney wins and does not restore normal taxes back then the USA will be straight back into recession and all the stimulus to pump prime the economy will come undone. This is what happens when you vote Republican, its the same as being a suicide bomber walking into the federal reserve.

"Economists at Bank of America estimate that if the White House and Congress allow all the measures to take effect, the fiscal squeeze facing America will be the equivalent to 4percent of the whole US economy. That is bigger than what the Coalition government's austerity programme is trying to achieve in Britain."

You Repubs are sooo just dumbass.
Oil production is at the highest levels since 2003.
Oil imports are at a 20 year low.
But here is what makes you Repubs so dumbass. US Oil EXPORTS are at a record high. Greater than anytime since 1949. Exxon is shipping Americas oil and making $104 Million per hour 24/7 doing it. You stupid ass Repubs can't understand anything!!!!!!!!!!
Drill Baby Drill --- China needs OIL. Dumbass Repubs.
Oil production is at the highest levels since 2003.

It takes 4 to 7 years to get from discovery to production of the big fields accounting for the increase, dumbass. It also takes 2 to 5 years of planning before you drill the discovery well, dumbass.
Obama couldn't be responsible unless he drilled those wells himself while Bush was president.

Oil imports are at a 20 year low.

Thanks to the increased production that we have 4 to 7 years after the discovery well is drilled, and the economic collapse and recession caused by the Democrats' ludicrous Marxist subprime housing loan program, dumbass.

About Exxon:
Exxon makes a total of 9.6 billion dollars from its assets in the United States. Exxon pays 12.3 billion dollars just for being in the United States.
Don't be surprised if Exxon, the most American of all companies, decides they've had enough of this bullshit and moves to some other country. The entire industry will follow them, and Obama's Secretary of Energy will finally get what he declared he wanted in 2008 when he said the people in the United States need to pay the same for gas as people in Europe.

You are an idiot and an ignorant dupe.

Romney: The End
Republicans have been castigating the New York Times‘ Nate Silver for his confident predictions of an Obama victory — his model last night gave the president a 92.2 percent chance of re-election — but Intrade and the RealClearPolitics polling averages have been telling the same story. The Intrade spread is now 72-29 for Obama. All three sets of predictions are primarily based on polls, of course, and it’s possible that the polls could be systematically biased against Mitt Romney. Why that would be is a little hard to guess: if anything, day-of-election registration in states like Wisconsin and the greater proportion of minorities who do not have landline telephones would suggest that the pollsters may be missing or screening out more Democrats. But there’s no doubting Republican enthusiasm at this point — it equals or exceeds the enthusiasm of 2010, though far fewer people overall vote in congressional midterm elections. And Democrats do seem skittish; a bit of depression on the part of their base and a bit of polling error in Romney’s favor could deliver an upset.
But probably not. It’s not just the polling snapshot that makes me think Obama has this in the bag — probably, as Noah Millman suggests, on track to win 294 electoral votes — but the apparent last-minute uptick in Obama’s numbers. He’s up less than a percentage point in the RCP average, but look at the chart above, especially the zoomed-in version here. Or look at the favorability differential on RCP’s homepage, which in the past week had Romney up by 3 points or more and now has him up by just over half a point. The late-breaking change is in O’s direction. A glance at the Senate polls also suggests that this is turning out to be a Democratic year. The day isn’t over yet, and polling chaos and tiny margins may prolong both candidates’ agonies for hours, if not days — let’s hope not weeks. But if professional polling and the judgement of bettors and Nate Silver alike is worth anything, the game is over for Romney.

Three Major Election Day Voting Problems

Problem #2: Poll workers in Pennsylvania wrongly telling voters they need photo ID to cast a ballot. According to the law, poll workers in Pennsylvania can ask voters for ID, but they are not required to show it in order to vote. However, that is not how the law is being enforced. Eric Marshall, co-director of Election Protection, says such problems are occurring across the state, although reports are that minority voters are being targeted in Philadelphia, Pittsburgh and Harrisburg.“Poll workers are asking black voters for ID but not white voters,” Marshall reported.

How many non citizens are registered to vote?

In a commentary published in Sunday's Las Vegas Review Journal, editorial writer Glenn Cook accuses the Culinary Union 226 of knowingly registering illegal immigrants and then pressured them to vote.

Cook quotes an unidentified illegal immigrant who is on the Clark County voter rolls. The person claims a union representative told them they were "in so much trouble" for refusing to vote.
