dforkus: cameroncrazy1984: dforkus: NateGrey: dforkus: robsul82: GoldSpider: PA is still a fairly safe Obama state, so I'll probably make a statement vote for Johnson.

/huh huh "johnson".

Ehhhhhhh, just to be safe, vote Obama. Pretty please.

Another bad sign for Obama, Johnson is going to end up being this election's nader. Lot's of youth that were caught up in the Obama hysteria of 08 are going to stay home, or vote Libertarian..

It's all going to start unraveling after 7 eastern.

Please dont stop posting tonight, your tears will be needed later.

Don't you worry about that, it's going to be a joy dispensing out the comeuppance

I doubt you'll be anywhere near here when the race is called. Will you take your medicine?

Absolutely, will you take yours??
The dems just aren't motivated like they were last time, and on the flip side the Anti Obama sentiment is palpable.
Also Romney's organization/ground game is an order of magnitude better than McCain.
We'll watch the democrats' hope unravel before our eyes


Oh, I get it. You're the Unskewed Polls guy. You do everything by gut feeling because math is too hard.

Not one of you 'gut feeling over statistics' types has had the balls to put any money on the line just yet.

You interested in being the first? How much do you want to place on a Romney win?

Corvus: Insatiable Jesus: Corvus: Then why not vote for the one of the 2 primary party candidates then if it doesn't matter?'

Waiter, could you take this back to the kitchen? It's a little heavy on the stupid.

Sorry I thought you just said the president doesn't actually have any power it's the senate. That's not what you said?

Serious you're nuts.



The US Senate is the ONLY real elected power in D.C.

At least in Britain, they label the two Houses more honestly - House of Commons and House of Lords - same thing we have here.

Remember Senate Democrats standing up to Bush and his wars? Yeah, me neither.

It's not perfect by any means, but it does tend to be a fairly good information vacuum, real money skin in the game and all that...

hillbillypharmacist: bulldg4life: In all my years on Fark, the Weaver transition shift from right-wing pro business nutter to moderate conservative to independent conservative to conservative that reluctantly accepts democrats as lesser of two evils to person working at democratic staging area is fascinating.

It has been really weird to watch the transition over the past 5-7 years.

Yup. A true transformation before our eyes.


As real as the internets can get.
Aside from the occasional Craigslist ad gone bad craziness.

Leeds: PanicMan: Will-Mun: This thread... it's getting hard to keep up with.

Just wait till everyone gets done with work and starts drinking.

Obama supporters don't tend to work, so 50% of the posters in this thread are probably already drunk...

Apologies - I meant to say down by three EV, not points.

Unless one thinks of EVs as points in a game, which could make sense if you think about it...

Why do more work for less money? Romney's going to vanish from the public eye. The guy is so rich he doesn't roll around in his pile of money - he pays someone to roll him around in his pile of money.

I think given the pace of the first two threads, they are expecting at least 8-10k posts. So they appear to be breaking them up into 2k blocks.

At this rate, Obama will be down to an 85% chance of winning (with Intrade at $65) tomorrow afternoon.

Obama is doomed.
