Too close to call?

Am I the only one who thinks it is suspicious how this election is too close to call, according to the corporate media? I mean Obama should be at least at 60%, maybe even 70%. We have 6 huge media conglomerates dictating 90% all the media us sheep digest. Why is a close election, nearly tied, advantageous to the establishment? They want Mitt to steal the election, either by republican voting machines, or voter suppression. A close election makes that harder to detect and easier to steal.

2. Just hope someone is keeping a close eye on Rove and company.

Cause you know the media is looking the other way.

3. I am trying to figure out how a 6 point margin in Ohio is tied.

That's what they keep telling us.

5. I do wonder if this line is equally pushed by both parties to GOTV and avoid complacency.

It could also be why both parties appear to dislike Meta Analysis who offer to the public the odds. The anachronistic MSM stands to make money with a close election as long as they can keep the sheep awake. There appears to be an uncertainty factor in my case I will vote Tuesday even though the odds are long. How many are lazy enough to not want to waste their time voting is a factor I seldom see discussed. Who likes to watch a horse race when the outcome is certain?
