Already refuted, darling, I don't have to refute for all your aliases.
Now do you want to eventually prove that only Democratic states voted for Obama?
Or the sun comes up in the east?
Aliases, you are a paranoid one. No need to prove anything else, your BS was called, and defeated.

I think political scientists will be studying this phenomenon to generations to come: that for some reason, states that were Democratic tended to vote for Obama... while...(tap tap tap tap) yes... it seems... tap tap tap... it seems that the Republican states tended to vote for....tap tap tap...Romney.
HMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM MMMM!

Keep going, get a map and maybe you can name all 50 states.

OBAMA DID NOT WIN A STATE THAT REQUIRED PHOTO ID AT THE TIME OF THE 2012 GENERAL ELECTION.

Have a nice day puddin'.

<quoted text>Let's help you out a bit:

Florida, Michigan, New Hampshire, Hawaii (all won by Obama) those states allow voters without photo identification to cast votes, if they sign an affidavit or confirm their identities in another way.

In Hawaii, voters can vote if they give their date of birth and address, and that matches the information in the poll book.
Could it be that most people had ID?

Your bullshit is moot.

You don't say?

Because for those that can read, I provided a list which haven't (you can't) refute.

Do you want to continue to stomp your feet insisting you won even though the score is 17 to nothing? That you got some bad calls?

Actually, I can.

The bottom line of course is Obama won... and your draft dodging loser lost.

And your assertion that the draft dodger won in RED states and Obama won in BLUE states is not as revealing as you might make it to be.

64% of whites voted for Romney- that's racist, 93% of blacks voted for Obama- that's "progressive". See the light?

It is racist if you voted for Romney because he was white and Obama was black, putting aside your conviction for child molestation and you not being able to vote.

Atta boy, genius- when you got nuthin', go for the childish remarks. Thanks for proving me right with each and every one of your juvenile attempts of humor that amuse no one but yourself.

"BS IS Called" made no such assertions. There is no need to follow the thread in it's entirety. You have been called out regarding your dialogue with "Lee and BS". It is you who keeps "moving goal posts" and adjusting a key word or two to suit your needs. Black Rhino tries to play the same game, but he is not quite as god as you. A challenge to his ability to draw a reasonable conclusion, and calling him out on his word game questions sends him packing. You just tote the guidelines in the liberal manifesto; dodge, deflect, insult, and accuse. It may work for a majority of voters,but not here.
