SmackLT: We'll see. I expect Obama to take Ohio based on current polls, but polls change. There is still time for Obama to stumble or something to come in from left field that Obama has to deal with. Romney might do exceptionally well in his debate and swing some of the independent voters. The economy could stall, or Israel could launch an attack on Iran's nuclear facilities, or there might be a terrorist action that has an impact on the conversation about the office of the president and his actions in response to specific issues/incidents.
 
It's bad for anybody to presume that this election is already done and sealed. A lot of things can happen in the last few weeks before people head to the voting booths. The polls just tell us what would happen if the election were held today.


Romney has sliding in the polls because he's been acting like a buffoon. China foreclosing on US debt, a Russian invasion and/or the first contact with an alien civilization won't garner Romney any additional credibility as a potential POTUS.

Brick-House: You're going down.



Then isn't he facing the wrong way?

"Polls go up, polls go down," Romney told ABC.

One of the few things he's gotten right this election season. Polls are currently going up for Obama and down for Romney.

Chariset: I wonder if it's too late for Ryan to get out.



I was wondering this last night. He'll be hailed by the Right and Sarah Palin as a forward-thinking maverick.

Notabunny: A few years ago California had a ballot measure to increase taxes on cigarettes by something like a dollar per pack. I was a very popular idea, and the polls showed that it was sure to win. Until a metric assload of advertising in the last 3 weeks before the election changed everything and the measure lost. Just sayin'.


I live in Virginia. I'm pretty much expecting wall-to-wall Romney commercials on every channel starting around mid-October.

James F. Campbell: FTA: At one point, Romney simply paused for almost a minute, basking in the glow of an adoring audience that wildly cheered the candidate throughout his 20-minute speech here.

Odds are this author attacks Obama supporters as worshipping a messiah.

At this point I think the Republican leadership honestly knew none of the primary candidates had a chance.....they were looking to groom Ryan for the spot in 2016.

LessO2: Sm3agol85: Ummm, easy, call him out on it. I highly doubt Romney will repeatedly contradict himself on live tv in front of billions. I don't like him at all, but I'm sure he'll be more prepared than that. I think the actual outcome will be he just says almost nothing substantial... nothing but vagueness and feel good statements, and escapes the debates with a indecisive loss that he'll claim as a resounding victory.

At this point, all Obama has to do during the debates is not fart or belch and he'll do fine, just let The Mitt Show do his thing.

And even if Obama ripped a couple out, not so sure it's a bad thing anyway.


Yeah, he should lay off that homemade beer before the debates.

DeaH: The Toledo area is one of the most consistently liberal areas of Ohio. The crowd of 3000 he spoke before are Republican True Believers who feel isolare. It's not surprising they would cheer Mitt. He's got all the raw sex appeal of Pat Boone.


Yuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuup. We're gonna elect Marcy again by a huge margin too. The derpers around home are pretty minimal. Look at all the support 'ol Joey da Plumber has.
They are doing their goddamnest to disenfranchise voters. This week Plunderbund reported that some Tea Tard Lawyer in Columbus challenged 296 OSU Students who had just registered to vote. The Franklin County board of elections held a hearing and she waltzes in there, rolling her eyes at a few students who had come down to testify. In the end the board denied her challenges and told her to, more or less, get bent.

Tea Party idiot gets shot down

They're challenging the right to vote of young voters and minorities in major urban areas.

Shiatbags trying to screw up my state

They repeat the same bullshiat that I keep hearing about voter fraud. It's disgusting.

Romney's comments came as he wrapped up a quick bus tour in Ohio with a rally at a convention center here-vowing he will create new jobs and turn the economy around "when I become president."

At least someone in the media is subtly trying to point out that he produces no actual plan other than "elect me". I was worried that this wouldn't happen with anyone except the obvious. Wonder how long until this story is blasted as "yellow journalism"?

You call him a buffoon, and that's your opinion on the man, but you're assuming that everybody else sees him through the same prism, and a lot of them don't. The message that they hear (and believe) is that he's a successful businessman and his business experience resonates with them during a bad economy. That a country cannot be governed identically to the way a business is run doesn't strike them. And I think it's naive to believe that it is impossible for anything to change public opinion between now and then. The electorate can be a fickle bunch and it's unwise to give them more credit than they deserve.

He was seen as a successful and intelligent business man in the Spring by most Americans. He was seen as a successful and greedy business man over the summer. He is now seen as a politically clumsy businessman who doesn't really care about all Americans today.

Sure it is my opinion but Republicans themselves start saying things like "Sweet Jesus" and his own campaign say that he "misspoke" or "spoke inelegantly". Let's just say my opinion that he is currently acting like a buffoon is shared by a growing number of people and can be supported by citations.

Oh fark that shiat I heard the same Lib Concern Trolling in '08 and guess what Obama still stomped McCain and won Ohio.

That Diebold crap only works if the election is close in '00 and '04 which is highly unlikely it's going to happen.

Amazingly, the latest derp I'm seeing is that SOROS owns the company that Obama is outsourcing the ballot-counting to.

Someone deserves to be punched in the dick over that one.

You mean this derp? Snopes Link

In the interest of fairness I searched for the Snopes article debunking the Diebold conspiracy theory and couldn't find it. Can anyone link that for me?


Winner winner chicken dinner!

What's funny to me is that it's an obvious *response* to the diebold conspiracy theory. I don't even think there's a schoolyard precedent set for that kind of brazen NO U-ing.

He's not doing well, but I stand by my assertion that a lot of moderate voters that I know aren't seeing him that way. Believe me, I'm not defending him. The only challenger that interested me at all was Jon Huntsman, and he didn't last long in the primary race. What I'm saying is that I know a lot of people looking at a crappy economy and believing that if Obama didn't specifically cause it, he didn't do enough to turn things around quickly. Hopefully, Obama gets a second term and the economy improves noticeably to a broader group of moderates, and his policies get proper credit.

I suppose I could see not voting for Obama because he hasn't done enough to turn things around. But has Mittens said ANYTHING at all to give the impression that he'd do any better? Hell, he doesn't even have charisma to fall back on.

If it's based on charisma then Obama has already won it. However, some people haven't listened to as much of Romney's speaking as you have, and they only hear "successful businessman". They haven't looked deeper into the full meaning of how that success was achieved. All I'm saying is that I'm not calling it with 0% of the precincts reporting. The electorate isn't necessarily as decided as you are or I am.

I would like to direct your attention to a site called "YouTube".


Which is why "herp derp" is quite possibly the best firefox ad-on of all time
