Attention neutralized!!! There is more to Ohio than Cleveland...

Ohio 2008...

obama: 2,940,044

McCain: 2,677,820

4.6% difference is not a landslide.

Obama should lose Ohio 2012 by 5.4% or better because contrary to media hype, "The Thrill Is Gone."

If this monstrous storm sits over the eastern seaboard for days on end, it might be necessary to keep the polls open for several days after November 6th to ensure all the voters have a chance to cast their ballot.
Extraordinary crises call for extraordinary solutions. Sometimes it's necessary to think outside the box...
Can they do that?

I think it would take congressional action and would almost certainly result in lawsuits from BOTH side claiming a benefit for the other.

I don't think the election has ever been extended past election day in our history, and it won't happen this time either.

Vote early or you may not be able to vote at all.

This is a chance for obama to really shine. If he stopped campaigning and worked on hurricane relief he would endear himself to 66 million voters. Being a typical politician he will probably continue to campaign.

Marvellous Mitt
If Romney wins, he’ll have won for the right reasons. He’ll have run a general election campaign that has avoided doing anything that would diminish the presidency or damage the country. It would perhaps be an overstatement to say of Romney, as Andrew Marvell said of another political figure centuries ago, He nothing common did or mean / Upon that memorable scene. But it is a fact that Romney and his running mate, Paul Ryan, have run an uncommonly un-mean campaign.
Obama and Vice President Biden, by contrast, have run a remarkably low and dishonest campaign. If their campaign of “vulgar spite”(Marvell again) fails to scare voters away from Romney, and if Romney prevails after a sober and dignified and, yes, presidential, effort, then Romney’s victory will have begun to lay the groundwork for a successful presidency.

Time to clean the house!
Romney hasn't been mean--except to 47% of the American population.

And the notion that Romney is truthful is ludicrous--he will say anything to get elected, and the only time he's told the truth during this campaign is when he's talking to his fellow plutocrats behind closed doors.

Watch Mitt admit his lack of empathy for the working poor at a $50,000/plate fundraiser:

Yep.

"Hundreds of millions of Americans will cast their ballots this November, but the votes that matter the most are cast by members of the Electoral College months later. Mitt Romney has taken a lead in an average of the national polls, but as seen below, President Obama continues to hold a lead over Mitt Romney in the key state polls released over the last 72 hours. The last Electoral College projection gave Obama 277 votes, compared to 261 votes for Mitt Romney. Today's update gives Obama the same edge over Romney by a 303-235 Electoral College vote count. "

Try reading the polls of Real Clear and see where they call the swing states.

If that is too hard for you, find someone that does that for you.

I have NEVER misquoted, knob job, you must have had spooge splash in your eyes.
