Was Florida Rendered Irrelevant With This Election?
Edited on Wed Nov-07-12 07:17 PM by Me.
Sorry Fla. Dems...but they still haven't offered up results in an election that has been called and everyone else is moving on. Rick Scott 's shenanigans didn't work for but against the state.

1. certainly showed what a crushing win really it was for the president
so despite tricky ricky's dirty power play of anti-populist perversion at the polls, the people prevailed!

I was shocked they held off calling Florida because wouldn't rMoney have had to win probably 55+% of what was left to beat the president. The odds surely aren't for that, but I guess they didn't want to have the Obama stomping of rMoney appear to be like a landslide showing him winning 332-206.

The GOP whining is intolerable.... they just need to STFU

4. But Also
It used to be Fla., Fla,. Fla., but Fla. still hasn't called it and everyone is moving on. My question is, will Fla. count in the future as much as it did in the past.

5. well, job 1 is the counties getting enough early voting areas approved, because IIRC, nearly half
of voters did it before Tuesday. And, yeah, Florida's strength is growing. If Florida had been a bit more obvious in going Obama, the election would have been called right at the second polls closed in the Pacific time zone, like 2008 when it was called because Ohio had already gone Obama. 29 EV's is a large number, over 10% of what's needed to win, and I guarantee today, that the GOP will have Marco Rubio (Floridian) or a Latino Californian on the ticket as VP nom.

2. You would think that Florida would make sure to have elections go smoothly.

6. Ohio used to be democratic at the state level and reliably republican at the national level.
Now that Ohio is reliably competitive the Dems no longer need Florida.

You hear that, Florida? Nobody loves you!


WE DON'T NEED YOU

(Apologies, madfloridian. It's all in jest)
