You're not kidding! My only concern now is the integrity of the actual voting process and getting everyone out to vote. There's no question, at this point, who the majority of the voters want for President. The problem is getting past the spinning, lying, cheating, stealing, bullying repugnantcans and public complacency.
I am just SO glad the Republicans nominated yet another crappy candidate.

By all historical precedents Obama should have got his butt kicked this year, but leave it to the GOPasaurs to screw up again!

Maybe in 2016 they'll go to the other extreme and nominate Rick Santorum?

Well, I'm no longer going to respond to you on this subject because you clearly are not educated in the slightest.

Nope. The liberal pervert communist must be kept off the US Supreme Court otherwise gay marriage will pale in conparison to legalized child molestation the liberals will push for so groups like NAMBLA and thier gay/child molesters can play with little boys.

Aaaah, once again your obsession with pedophilia comes out. Is that what you use the back of your semi for?

Btw, the SCOTUS decides tomorrow which marriage equality cases to accept this term. Expect a LOT of whining from the anti-gays when those "activist" justice Scalia, Roberts, Alito, & Thomas refuse to accept the Prop 8 case, and allow marriage equality to return to California!

Of course the REAL crying will come next year when Justice Roberts authors the majority opinion overturning DOMA.

Aaaah, gotta love the irony of that!

Could you please PM me on how that goes? I don't have much time on my hands these days and I'm not the best with search engines.

I don;t think that there are any Canadian troops in Iraq.

And the Iraqi War was eminently justified to oust the brutal murderous dictator Barack Hussein.

The ONLY thing that matters is to get BARACK HUSSEIN OSAMA OUT OF OFFICE !

He is Evil. PURE EVIL.

Unfortunately for you that means 53% of the American people agree with Obama.

See, because 53% is greater than 47%, which means Obama is reelected and your GOPasaur candidate goes back to counting his wives & his money.......

Firstly, you know that the POTUS is not elected by a simple majority of the voting public.

Secondly, all the polls show that The Obamaniac is at about 45% approval rating.

The election will be determined by that 6% of the people who haven't decided yet whom they will vote for, and the battleground states will be in such states as Ohio, Florida, Iowa, New Hampshire, Wisconsin, and about 2 or 3 orthers. The electors in the electoral College will then select the POTUS and VEEP.

States such as California, New York, and ARIZONA, are not being seriously contested by either candidate, and approximately 35 other states are also not being seriously contested by either candidate.

Firstly, Obama leads by more than 5 points in enough states to get more than 300+ electoral votes (you only need 270 to win).

Secondly, all the polls show Romney has an even WORSE approval rating (I don't have to run faster than the bear, just faster than YOU).

Thirdly, once again Obama leads by more than 5 points in Ohio, Florida, Iowa, New Hamsphire, Wisconsin, and 2 or 3 other battleground states like Michigan, Pennsylvania, etc, etc, etc.

Fourthly, that means Obama wins reelection in yet another 300+ electoral vote landslide! And that means your favorite GOPasaur candidate LOSES AGAIN!!!!!!

But don't worry, I'm sure Obama will order Harry Reid not to allow a vote on repealing DADT, and even if it should pass the Senate, I'm sure Obama will veto it, because as you stated NUMEROUS times Obama doesn't want DADT actually repealed!!!!

Don't you EVER get tired of being WRONG WRONG WRONG!!!!!!1
