Richard Roma: TV's Vinnie: Even if it is a done deal for Obama, I'm still going to go out and vote anyway. I WANT to take part in extending a collective middle-finger to the face of every teabagger, Randroid, plutocrat, rightard, and supply-side jaggoff out there.

I'm in Texas and therefore my vote means nothing (thanks, electoral college), but I'm voting just so I can tell any Teahadists who approach me outside the polls to go fark themselves.

And I'm tempted to, if Obama wins, go around town that night pasting signs of his grinning face everywhere accompanied by the caption "U MAD?"


do what I did last time and drive around town, slowly, while blasting out 'chocolate city' by parliament and 'funky president' by james brown. i had many lulz

I guess I should have said they're big on "cutting government" which is different.

TV's Vinnie: MindStalker: The My Little Pony Killer: He's fear-mongering. Probably has another film coming up.

Fear-mongering, yes, he is using your fear to convense you to vote and not just assume its in the bag. This type of fear pushing in neccesary, as too many would stay at home and Romney just might win.

Even if it is a done deal for Obama, I'm still going to go out and vote anyway. I WANT to take part in extending a collective middle-finger to the face of every teabagger, Randroid, plutocrat, rightard, and supply-side jaggoff out there.

I live in the reddest part of a red state and I think some people will seriously stroke out when he wins again. Like blood from their eyes aneurysms. I also think their anger helps to keep them alive but goddamn are they tiresome to listen to. Functionally retarded too.

Did you see any muslins dancing in the street to your tunes? Steve King promised there were gonna be muslins dancing in the streets that night, but I never saw any. This made me scared cuz I think our local muslins stayed home that night to work on their bombs.

While 71% chance of winning the election is a distinct advantage.... I wouldn't count that as a "slam dunk". Plenty of people have gotten screwed on the river going all in on a hand they were up 70-30 on.

MurphyMurphy: And the money.... they have SO MUCH MONEY over Obama, and money wins elections. Undecided voters are the stupidest people on the planet (and a demographic that usually turns out in high numbers) and they will be barraged with pro-Romney rhetoric between now and November


This is the most compelling argument I've heard thus far. It is far more compelling than it should be.

Romney is spending a lot of money right now and he's at 48% in the polls. Let's say that holds true on election day. If Romney wants to move that number to 49%, he needs to double what he's spending now.

If he wants to bump that up to 50%, he'll have to quadruple it. If he wants to go to 51% to blow the election out, he will have to octuple his campaign spending.

Money has less influence than you might think.

No, its just exponentially more expensive to "buy" votes as you move up the intelligence curve. There will always be some that are unreachable: I wouldn't vote to Romney even if he did pay me.

Its all a sham anyway. A national pep rally to pick between two members of the same team. Its the 1980s WWF with all the anger and vitriol in public, but all the players follow the same script and are paid by the same people.

I worry that Obama's reelection will lead some of the more derpy members of our society to acts of violence. There is good chance of attempts on Obama's life. There are just too many stupid angry people in this country ... too many stupid angry people with guns.

Problem is Romney hasn't hit over 40% in the 538 projection since Early June the first week when Silver began his projection.

If Romney didn't get a bump from picking Ryan he sure as hell isn't going to get a huge bump after the disaster of a convention he just had from Ryan's lies to Clint's "Old Man Yells At Chair" act.

Romney's only hope to get back at a fighting shot of Obama is the debates and given that he can lose his cool if his opponent tells him how the weather was today, I wouldn't have any confidence if I were a Republican that the campaign is going to get better.

TV's Vinnie: Boudica's War Tampon: Brian Ross said his networks political statisticians said this election comes down to 12 COUNTIES. Not states. Counties.

I gotta say [Citation Needed] on that. Elaborate, please.


I wasn't going to say anything earlier, but a little thought exercise seems to make that unlikely. If you look at what it would take for Romney to win, a near sweep of the swing states, it suggests that each state is swung by only two counties. I guess you could make the argument that you generally don't win some states without winning others, and you generally don't win some counties without winning others, but that's not the same as saying you can just campaign in those counties and expect to win. Those 12 counties might be able to predict how you did nationwide, but that doesn't mean that only their votes count or that their votes make the difference.

It's like watering your garden and finding that the downhill plot does the best, and that if it has bad tomatoes, your entire garden is going to suck, but if it has great tomatoes, your garden is doing well. That doesn't mean you no longer have to water any plants other than those in that one plot.

It's not an electoral college problem. It's a Texas problem, and it's not insurmountable.

Agreed, but, again, if we are to assume that his projection odds are true "odds"... 30% isn't "awful" odds. If it was 95-5%, you'd say it was a huge upset for Romney to win the election. At 70 to 30%, while Obama is favored... I wouldn't call it a "huge upset", maybe an upset, but, Romney was in the "running". If the odds were at something like 95-5%, Romney winning would be a huge upset, to the extent where if he did win you'd almost have to assume that things outside of how people would be expected to vote played a heavy influence.... a good example of that will be PA... right now Nate has Obama as having a 90% chance of winning PA...... with those odds, Romney actually winning PA would have to be chalked up to the voter ID laws affecting the expected outcome of the vote, rather than his really being expected to win.

ghare: CPennypacker: Psst. He's trying to scare dems Americans into voting. They should be scared and vote.

If every eligible American voted, there would be no chance of a Romney Presidency.

Which is, of course, why there are so many Republican-led voter disenfranchisement policies in place.


THIS.
If every american who could vote actually did so, the slate would be nearly wiped clean of republicans from the oval office to your local city council for generations.
This thought is what makes republicans sh*t themselves. Fewer voters = more (R)'s.

Complacency is the enemy.
Democrats should get their asses to the polls by any means necessary.

schubie: clambam: I think this is a legitimate concern. The lesson of the Wisconsin recall election was "outspend your opponent 8-to-1 and you will win." Expect a deluge of Romney ads in the waning days of the election. I can only hope that Obama is holding something truly damning in reserve, and that Romney will blurt out something truly unbelievable, which he has a tendency to do. The trick is to get him in front of an audience exactly 50% normal and 50% Teabagger. In his uncontrollable need to pander to both sides simultaenously, he might come out with something good, like "One of the most important lessons I learned during my days as the Zodiac Killer..."

You laugh but he was at Stanford at the time of the killings. The killings started again when he returned from France. Down to the month. The killings that happened when he was at BYU ocourred on the east side of the city/. He matches the description and the police sketch and of the very few (strangely very few) handwriting samples available, Mitt's handwriting matches too. Try to read a Zodiac Killer letter NOT in Mitt Romney's voice. It can't be done. Oh and Zodiac and Mitt both had the cop uniforms and the bubblegum lights for their cars.

I'm looking forward to saying President Romney.

I hope he can turn our country around. I also hope that Dems and Repub's can work together for the betterment of the United States.

/confident in the first
//not as much in the second

But we can all do cool stuff like call him "Sh*tt Romney* and "FartMittBongo" and stuff while they finish cleaning out the treasury. The very fact that we still think that these elections have any effect on the agenda of the people who actually own and run this country - and whom, I might add, are also dismantling and selling it - is testament to the fact that we're too stupid to stop them.
