Weaver95: quite simply, this sort of tactic is sheer desperation. Look, the Obama campaign has had us phone banking and canvassing doors since mid september. every day we narrow down the phone lists, screening out GOP voters and focusing on getting undecideds to switch votes to Obama and getting the Democratic voters to commit to voting on election day. that's a LOT of work but we're almost to the point where our call lists are around 90%-ish accurate and up to date. so we're not wasting time/effort phone blasting to people who aren't going to vote OR who are gonna vote Republican.Then along comes this mass txt phone blast from the Romney campaign. if they're sending text messages to people who aren't Republicans then that tells me they're working off VERY inaccurate voter lists. they haven't put in the time and effort to narrow down their voter rolls, organize people to get Republicans to the polls on election day. it's sloppy and they're paying the price for NOT building an effective campaign organization down on the ground where it matters. they needed to be doing that work over a month ago if they planned to be ready for election day/go time.
Tyrone Slothrop: Massive storm on the east coast. Disney making new Star Wars films. Weaver95 campaigning for a Democrat.Looks like the Mayans were right.
Smashed Hat: Weaver95:I wonder if the GOP understands that being annoying isn't going to help them very much on election day...Actually I've been getting quite a bit of text spam from the Democrats and I don't remember giving out my new cell number on any websites. It's a little creepy.
Weaver95: ht.I am not one of the signs of the apocalypse.
karnal: DamnYankeesAs dumb as those tweets are, I'm not seeing the overt racism. Am I missing something?I think it is racist that they are making such a big deal about this but last week when people were tweeting that if Romney wins they would 'take matters into their own hands' was virtually ignored.

VoodooTaco: While we don't yet have flying cars, we can't cure brain swelling without cutting into the skull, and some people on this Earth still starve, I try to consider this era of 4g phones and tablet devices, fairly advanced medical care, increasingly more fuel efficient cars etc to be the pinnacle of human civilization. I can't complain having been born in this era.But it's shiat like this, where human interaction has been lowered to monkies tossing turds at one another, coupled with the anti-science and my Jesus/Mohammad has a bigger peen than your prophet/God establishment that makes me realize we're still in the farking Dark Ages.Stay classy GOP people.
IamKaiserSoze!!!: Hmmm, which party would be more inclined to do this. The one who's base is already motivated or the one who's getting desperate?Sorry Barry, you're goin down.
monoski: //Except that Biden BS, but I don't vote for VP's or I would have abstain this year as they are both dolts
