Isn't it interesting ...
I wonder if Rove counted on Florida and Ohio to save the day, but he did not expect Obama to take so many states that it would make Florida and Ohio irrelevant. Both Florida and Ohio engaged in all sorts of quasi-legal election fraud. Florida purged voters where they could, often purging legitimate ones "accidentally," In addition, Florida restricted early voting and created ballot that were so long and convoluted that people had to wait up to nine hours in line to vote. Ohio tried to create different voting rights for veterans than for everyone else, cut back early voting hours, installed experimental software on their voting machines, and passed a probably illegal rule about provisional ballots hours before the election. Florida's reputation is well known when it comes to corruption of the democracy, and wasn't it interesting how certain Karl Rove seemed that Ohio would ultimately go his way. The fact is that once the teabaggers saw that with or without Florida and Ohio Obama would win, they gave up the fraud. No point in committing fraud when it won't do you any good.
I really think there needs to be a thorough investigation of election fraud and national standards for voting. I hope the White House and Senate and good government groups keep the mysteries of this election alive. In my opinion, it's more than coincidence the problems and issues with Florida and Ohio. If this election had been close, my guess is that Florida and Ohio would still be "undecided," with newly discovered ballots and "mistakes" favoring Romney.

1. The Rethugs would
have had a big revolt by the voting populous had the Rove Brothers pulled off a heist. To many really pissed off people this time around. They were counting on the fact that most folks would not be paying attention and the heist would be a no brainier. With the Laptops and I-phones being used by most today,the Turd was caught in his game plan from the get go. Thanks mostly to the occupy movement,DU,facebook and other social media. When we seen all of the purchases of Twitter accounts,that was the real wakeup call. Amazing how a few arrogant people try to intimidate and humiliate the vast populous,and they try doing it as long as no one pushes back. Get teaching moment in 2012,wasn't it. Just simply got to love it. A small porsal of Karmatic justice.
