**Gallup Poll** Romney Maintains Six Point Lead

John Nolte
20 Oct 2012,

While we were all enjoying the ride while it lasted, I don't know of anyone who expected Romney to still hold a six-point, 51-45%, lead in the Gallup poll when today's numbers rolled in. But he did. This is the fifth day in a row where Romney's been at 50 or above and the fourth day in a row he's been ahead of Obama by six points or more.

Why is NOTHING being done about the harassment of voters in those coal mines, forcing them, literally, to vote for the Republicans/Romney? Isn't that voter intimidation? Why aren't the Dems all over that one? You know, during the Clinton ad., President's Clinton cabinet would be all over that one.

Lets just get our heads out of the butts and your
hearts out of hanging on Obama for a minute.
Lets get sane and stop blaming Bush and ask your
selves what Obama has done for YOU or your
old widow aunt! Are you as rich as Obama? Have
you found out what is in his savings? He has aquired two homes worth many millions, and once
said he had 14million in less than 2yrs..."The
work hours and load much have wore the feller OUT.
But did you question what he did? No No NO!!!!
Yet you have the unbitaged gull to call a man a "KILLER", an idiot, and a thief..Sound familier
Just a sample what you did to Bush, "Mitt hasn't
been in your sights as long. You know
about bullies, been in practice of that since a child, right? You couldn't have picked up being a
chammpion if not. Did you ask what Obama
was prepared for when you voted? NO Did you
ask if he could get us out of debt? NO
But he made promises to you , didn't he.
Would Romney get the same treatment? You have
succeeded in trashing, wonder how you knew sooo
much about trash...Anyone else wonder??? Think
and know who you follow, it can and goes RUB OFF..
If you roll in mud, you will be dirty.

His next stop will be in Virginia where he will campaign for the "smoking is good for your heaalth" vote.

Then on to Louisiana where he will campaign for the
"crude oil spillage is good for the environment"
vote.

And then to North Dakota for the "flammable tap-water is normal" vote

Then a day of fun shooting caged animals with billionaire supporters.

Very busy schedule.

Coal Miners’ Union Sits Out Presidential Race

FAIRMONT, W.Va.—After giving then-Sen. Barack Obama a full-throttled endorsement in the 2008 presidential election, the United Mine Workers of America has decided not to endorse either Obama or the presumptive Republican nominee, Mitt Romney, in 2012.

I don’t think quite frankly that coalfield folks are crazy about either candidate.”

If the coal fields go republican it won't be the first time. Believe it or not the leader of the United Mine Workers, John L Lewis, was a republican and supported Hoover in 1928. In 1940 he supported the republican candidate Wendell Willkie for president. In those days it was common for union members to vote republican.

Bush/Cheney debt. Bush wars and tax breaks for the wealthy. Try to have a usable brain, BlueTits.
that is a myth majority of the debt is not Bush wars and tax cuts for the wealthy nitwit. Tax cuts were for all also never been a higher tax revenue than under Bush with the TAX cuts in 2007. So you try to use your brain and do the research.. Obamas debt and forecasted budgets do not include theose "wealthy tax cuts" or either war but yet his buedgets still forecast more debt even by his own conservative nubmers.
