The Advancement Project, a self-described multi-racial civil rights organization, will send more than 3,000 poll watchers to battleground states.

The Election Protection coalition, which includes Democratic allies such as the Sierra Club, Service Employees International Union and People for the American Way, plans to recruit 8,000 to 10,000 volunteers to cover 80 cities and counties.

“We hope that all groups that are putting people at a polling place, that they should follow the law and they should be there to make sure that responsible Americans who wish to participate in our democracy are able to free of intimidation,” said Eric Marshall, co-leader of Election Protection.

Civil rights groups have complained about what they say are subtle efforts of intimidation. They point to a billboard campaign in swing states such as Ohio warning voter fraud is a felony punishable by up to three and a half years in prison and a $10,000 fine.

Engelbrecht of True the Vote says intimidation is not her group’s motive.

“We are not in the business of picking winners or losers, but instead, to ensure that the process is iron-clad,” she said.“Properly trained a capable poll watchers or workers should offer no indication of their partisan or ideological leanings to voters at the polls.” source – The Hill

Wrong. 1 Florida paper endorsed Rmoney. The last thing anybody with any clue would call the Miami Herald is leftist. You are either a liar or an idiot. Actually, probably both.

Obama had 4 years to change the country for the better.
Seriously, can anyone name one good thing this guy's done for America?
I need not explain how he and his corrupt guttertrash Chicago mafia handlers have made everything worse. Simply look around with your own lying eyes for proof.
We need real jobs, not McWalmart jobs.
We also don't need the Obama Administration continuing on it's current path to oblivion without having to worry about re-election. This would be dangerous to our constitution's survival and our pocketbooks.
Romney is owned by the same international bankers as Obama destroying America from overseas.
However by hittig the reset button on the corrupt, power crazed, Obama administration it gives more Americans time to wake up to what is presently happening to America.
Obama may be likeable but he is incompetent.
In some aspects Obama is right when he says ((("you didn't build/create that, government did.")))
Let's look at what this administration has created in 4 short years and imagine what he can do with 8:
- Socialist eugenics based health care (((Obamacare)))
-NDAA (((National Defense Authorization Act))) where Americans can now be disappeared without a jury
- Out of control (((Crony Capitalism))) where government picks winners and losers based on payouts -not the free market eg. Solyndra, GM, MF Global, Numerous Bank Bailouts, No Prosecution of criminal Banksters
-(((Skyrocketing Unemployment and Outsourcing)))-The idea that welfare checks/EBT cards are paychecks
-(((Fast and Furious))) and other suspected domestic false flags to argue for abolishing the 2nd ammendmant
- Massive (((TSA expansion))) onto America's streets and armed (((survellance drones/now blimps))) operating over US territory.
-(((UN control of U.S. military troops to invade))) Egypt, Syria, parts of Africa, etc. for offshore bankers aka Nazism
-(((Trickle Down Government))) The idea that nothing can be built without (((more government bureaucrats and global warming regulations/taxes))) getting in the way
-(((Throwing Israel -an important ally- under the bus))) by destabalizing all the county's around it but not offering them any assurances of protection
- A (((continuation of Bush's failed policies))), like not getting out of Iraq, Afghanastan, and no closing of Guantanamo torture camps
-(((Polaraized race relations))) eg. Disrespectful hadling of the Treyvon Martin family after his murder -opportunistic my son would have looked like Treyvon soundbite- and media staged racial infighting between Americans setting up for social conflict right before the 2012 election
-(((No Proof Obama supposedly got Osama)))) America was never really allowed to see the body/proof ; -)
-(((Defunding of NASA))) No exploration of the stars for the U.S., leave that to countries that are exceptional
-(((No Plan/ or Budget to Fix Anything going forward if he is re-elected )))-always says what you want to hear, then does the exact opposite hoping you''ll forget by the next speech -(((Sociopathic Liar)))
-(((Obamaphone)))-Massive expansion of this program for his dependant voting base
-(((Unlimited QE3 leading to hyperinflation/ monopoly money))) Dollar is rapidly losing purchasing power resulting in skyrocketing food and GAS PRICES (especially for "green gas" in CA)
-(((Needed a tainted Creepy Crawley moderator to hold his hand during the second debate))) who helped him dodge hard questions he couldn't answer -a (((weak affirmative action President)))
- My favorite (((Legalizing the illegals))) temporarily until the election is over but not once addressing true immigration reform
- The list goes on.
Is this what you really want another 4 years of?
As Donald Trump would say: Obama you're fired:

I'm Jewish and most of my Jewish friends are extremely pro-Obama, even the repugnantcan ones. I also work in a very affluent suburb of W.P.B where the majority of the community is Jewish and they are all extremely pro-Obama. I really can't find any consistency or predictability about the way people have been voting down here for several years now. It just seems that nothing has been the same since they stole the 2000 election. It is mind-boggling how much damage that administration did. The way that debacle manifested itself on this country has been nothing but destructive. I think recovery will be stronger during the President's 2nd term but it is disgusting and despicable that those dirty, lying, theives should have gotten away with any of it.

Off course, you are correct...To me, worse yet, is the Reich's ability to sell everyone, that current conditions are all President Obama's fault, and their disappearing act, of just how bad 2008 was on everything, including how close the global economy was to collapse....to be able to sell so many, in the middle class, their "protect the rich's wealth", tax program, is amazing...especially when they don't even realize, they are gonna pay for that.......How do you think the american jews, view Netanyahu's commercials pushing us toward conflict with Iran?....They sure appear pro-Romney.....Romney has flip-flopped of course, but has had a hawkish attitude previously....

CHECK OUT THIS LIBERAL/COMMIE DRIVEN BULL SH*T?
WHAT A FKG DISGRACE THEY ALL ARE!!
The Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE), a United Nations partner on democratization and human rights projects, will deploy 44 observers around the county on Election Day to monitor an array of activities, including potential disputes at polling places.
Liberal-leaning civil rights groups met with representatives from the OSCE this week to raise their fears about what they say are systematic efforts to suppress minority voters likely to vote for President Obama.
