In 59 divisions in Philadelphia, not one vote for Romney. Not even one.
A political scientist at the University of Virginia who studies African American precincts, Larry Sabato, said,
"I'd be surprised if there weren't a handful of precincts that didn't cast a vote for Romney," he said. But the number of zero precincts in Philadelphia deserves examination," and saying, "Not a single vote for Romney or even an error? That's worth looking into."
Worth looking into, indeed.
This one city wouldn't have changed the outcome but it spotlights, perhaps, a more widespread suspicion of corruption. Something we'll probably never know.
If Romney had won and this had happened in a predominantly conservative city, the left would be having a meltdown screaming republicans rigged every poll in the country.
At least we on the right have a little more self-control and composure if there's a suspicion of foul play.
The fact that President Obama didn't get any votes in many localities really bothers republicans. It's too bad that there weren't more localities with informed citizens like those.

McCain got zero votes in 57 of those divisions Carol. The term divisions has your head jumping time hah it doesn't take much does it?

Your new pal, the short poster is putting up nonsense this morning and you appear more than happy to play piggyback.

Pressures from the presidency are obvious in any term for any president. But for an older president, Reagan handled those pressures far better than most seniors.

Obama was also exhibiting this kind of pressure during the first debate. Some probably even thought he had early Alzheimer's.

Second terms are usually never good for any president. Obama has only just begun.

If those 59 divisions (even if they only comprised 19,605 of the votes) had voted only for Romney, you don't honestly think the left wouldn't be freaking out and would still be screaming the election was rigged if Romney had won?

Surely, even you don't think that.

Reagan couldn't even answer any questions during the Iran Contra trial. He couldn't remember anything. By then his mind was completely gone.

His performance at the first debate was because of the high altitude. He will have a great, productive second term...and a great third term too!

What suspicion? Have you ever been to philly? There's areas where not 1 white person lives called the ghetto & after the 47% debacle & romney saying it's in his heritage to work with black people, my family were slave owners, how are you surprised or suspicious about anything? Those comments would make some white folks not vote for him even if they were undecided or leaning 1 way or another. It shows how far out of touch he is with the times? If it were a southern state I may be skeptical, but philly, far from it!

Obama not only likes the status quo but he's making sure the burden of paying for the additional 30 million falls directly on the shoulders of taxpayers who have to work to support them.
And the relatively few people in the 1% category.
Hard to believe some people can't figure out everyone's taxes will go up.
Everyone's taxes are going up January 1, 2013, even before Obamacare kicks in on January 1, 2014.
Just simply hard to believe.
The largest portion by far of the revenue generated comes from this:

Additional 0.9 percent payroll tax on wages and self-employment income and new 3.8 percent tax on dividends, capital gains, and other investment income for taxpayers earning over $200,000 (singles)/$250,000 (married)

Unless you do not buy insurance & get fined, the middle class suffer few direct taxes.

It's not unusual in that section of Philly and parts of certain other large cities. As I said, in 57 of those same divisions, McCain got zero votes__not a single one.

You pal Sean Hannity was corrected on air about his story. and he sloughed off fact in favor of his fiction. Have you ever been to South Philadelphia Carol?

It's case closed for all but the insane.

The script for a fiscal cliff deal was always supposed to be simple: Democrats would win on taxes. Republicans would win on entitlements.

But what kind of victory can Republicans really hope to win? They’re going to have to lower their sights — by a lot — from the big ideas they pushed in the presidential campaign.
