1. MSM can continue to collect the millions paid in advertising by United Citizen Millionaires.....

after all, the Corporate media has been saying it was going to be "close" for hell of long......
with almost as much fervor as they had when they promoted the hell out of the Teabaggers
all the way up until the 2010 mid-term elections......
Ain't that so quaint!

The Free press that was referred to in our constitution ain't no more.

Our Poor democracy (or what tiny remnants are left of it) sold out by the bought Corporate media to the highest
corporate bidder.

2. The MSM will keep trying to sell it as "close"

So it can be stolen, no questions asked.

3. Hmm

I actually do think it's really close. The Left needs to get Romney to start answering questions and getting him to open his mouth and put his foot in it again. Romney is getting a pass by not having to answer personally. This is the guy who walks out of interviews when questioned on issues he doesn't feel he has to answer. He needs to stop being allowed to have his "people" answer for him. Obama needs to say, "I want to hear it from Romney's own mouth for once! Stop hiding behind your puppeteers!" His people trying to answer the difference between Romneycare and Obamacare, was a disaster! Get Romney to do this!

4. expect Romney to go ahead nationally after he picks a VP & has his convention

then Obama will gain ground after his convention. It's close--and the debates will be crucial. Obama needs to really shine in them. I have no doubt he can, but the MSM will try and help Romney as much as possible.

7. This race shouldn't even be close, let alone tied

Are half of all Americans really that stupid to want a repeat of GWB?
