Hurricane Sandy Threatens to Disrupt Voting on Election Day

Nov 2, 2012 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: FiveThirtyEight

Some New Jersey voters may find their hurricane-damaged polling sites replaced by military trucks, with - in the words of the state's lieutenant governor, Kim Guadagno - "a well-situated national guardsman and a big sign saying, 'Vote Here.' " Half of the polling sites in Nassau County on Long Island still lacked power on Friday.

Smart voters have already cast their ballots for Obama.
Here in the State of California, the three remaining registered Republicans are playing paper-stone-scissors to see who drives the car pool on Tuesday.

Obama abandons those in need to run off and party with rappers in Vegas. What a scum bag.

Shows up and walks around for a couple of hours just long enough to get his picture taken then OOPS, gotta go to Vegas!

In between he continually denies having a clue about the Libyan fiasco. The guy is inept.

That BASTARD knew there was a problem and did NOTHING.

Obama did NOTHING. He walked around and then split town. He acted like a loser. He should have stayed and worked with the effort instead of splitting to Vegas to party. He sucks.

Any idiot can get out of a plane and walk around and get their picture taken and say yep, there's a whole lotta damage 'round here,.....see 'ya, I'm heading to Vegas.

Yeah, that's why CA is a laughing stock. People laugh at California here in Florida. We love it here. NO STATE INCOME TAXES, A REPUBLICAN GOV, PRO BUSINESS, GREAT WEATHER,......California is congested, indebted, over run by illegals, and you have the one of the stupidest Governors in the country. Plus your ocean is cold.

We kick your ass.

I'm surprised that with Quinn pulling all that income out of your ass to pay for the food stamps, section 8 housing for illegals and that "dream act" that you have enough money left over to pay your Internet bill.

Or, is that part of your benefits for supporting Rham and Barry?

LOL!!! You talk like you think the world is some teabagger cartoon!

FYI,'ol PooPoo's income tax is about average, lower than a number of states. Maybe "bama" taxes are lower, but we in Illinois aren't ready to live at a third world level, like the teabagger states in Dixie.

Property taxes in suburban Chicago are reasonable too. Sales taxes are high, but 'ol PooPoo has bought his home & all the crap that goes in a home, so I'm not so materialistic. And tobacco taxes are unbelievable, but I don't use tobacco so it's all good.

So where were all those early votes stashed? Maybe Obama's votes blew away. Or maybe he didn't get that many. Maybe he will call off the electikon so he can round table some more Obama votes.

That is an understatement. He was ready to throw displaced people without homes out of motels to make room for marathon runners. It's lucky that the conservatives stopped him. He is totally nuts and out of touch. He gotta go.

You don't see the enthusiasm at Obama's rallies this time that he had in 2008. He didn't deliver for his biggest group, because there is no way they will ever be satisfied no mattrer what you give them. Without them, and the independents, he loses. The independents are going with Romney this time.
