11. Yeah which f*ckin one is it

Don't doomngloom but don't get confident either. Ok I guess that leaves cautious, yet pragmatically optimistic realist.

Jesus some Dems get on my nerves with that stuff. Circular firing squad.

It's 2 weeks before the election - if you're not on board w/ enthusiasm and confidence, then get out the way.

4. Why is North Carolina still Red

I live here and have constantly seen the pro-Obama turn out at the polls that are lining up out the door every single day since early voting as started. I see absolutely no support for Rmoney around here. Everyone I talk to around here plans on either not voting or voting or has already voted for Obama. I keep hearing other peoples stories from around the rest of the state that are similar to my own. I do not see this state going Red this election year. It went Blue in 2008 and there was a HUGE support for McCain here then and we still went Blue. No way we are going Red for lame ass Rmoney!

6. Not complacent. GOTV, GOTV and GOTV again.

Actually, I already voted, so... yeah. No, my point is not to encourage complacency, but rather counter some of the dire doom and gloom.

Truth is, it's gonna be a tight race, it always WAS going to be a tight race. Every vote counts.

12. I think this will happen too, but I'm going to cover my territory like we're behind ten points.

I'm going to be driving Miss Daisy, and Miss Ruth, and Miss Edith, and anyone else who needs a ride to the polls, and I will keep doing it until I run out of personal gas or no one else needs a ride!

13. Obama wins a landslide. I have been saying that all along. Everything else is a bluff.

 

and don't let the smears/gossip/etc. keep your eyes off the prize.

ignore everything
think of a brick wall

and we all will be celebrating the night away in 15 days.

14. The only landslide that counts is one that has already slid

The goal isn't accomplished yet.

15. I think the President will also win one, two, or three of the following states

North Carolina, Indiana, and Missouri. The president will also have a good showing but lose
in Georgia too. West Virginia, Kentucky, and Tennessee will vote against their best interests
too many people in those states don't like black people. ...... I know that racism is national ....

I want Romney below 200 electoral votes and Obama well above 300.

21. By landslide, I am guessing you are referring to the electoral college

In that case, I disagree with you and think it will be much closer than last time.

First, if you look at the changes in the EV along due to reapportionment for the census, Obama will lose 6 EV assuming he won all the same states as in 2008. Also it is pretty apparent Indiana will flip back to being red again which is another 11, for a total of 17. That takes him from 365 to 347. There is no single state that the polls are showing Obama can flip this year that has been red. North Carolina and Florida will both be close. So the question comes down to those two states. If he wins both 347 would be the ceiling, if he loses one of them (which is possible, but certainly not fatal) it could be slightly lower.

Obama 347/Romney 191 will probably be the best we can hope for. While that is a good size win, I disagree that it is a blowout.

22. Somebody's been reading my thread...

Posted on October 10, 2012 by me

ELECTION SPOILER: Obama wins in a LANDSLIDE

I keep telling you folks.
This is reality free of the all media spin.
I knew this was reality before the year 2012 started.
As soon as the list of candidates was revealed I knew Obama would get his 2nd term EASILY.
