Filed under Open thread, saturday lecture series at November 3rd, 2012 - 8:30 am

I’m not going to bother this Saturday.

 

There is no topic that could derail the topic about Tuesday…It’s the last weekend before the election.

 

SO, have an open thread.

Comments

Comments and respectful debate are both welcome and encouraged.

Comments are the sole opinion of the comment writer, just as each thread posted is the sole opinion or post idea of the administrator that posted it or of the readers that have written guest posts for the Blogmocracy.

Obscene, abusive, or annoying remarks may be deleted or moved to spam for admin review, but the fact that particular comments remain on the site in no way constitutes an endorsement of their content by any other commenter or the admins of this Blogmocracy.

We're not easily offended and don't want people to think they have to walk on eggshells around here (like at another place that shall remain nameless) but of course, there is a limit to everything.

Play nice!

    Ya know, the people out there who lament “politicians” should consider that Romney has spent a pretty small portion of his life in politics; he did four years as Governer but aside from that he’s a public sector guy. Obama, as well as Clinton and Carter before him are the careerist politicians who have no identity outside the political realm.

    While O. has spent how much time in politics ?

    Before he was elected as president he only campaigned.

    Imho his is the laziest, most unexperienced president ever.

    Indeed. He only knows how to whine and complain about the leadership of others and nothing about what leadership actually is.

    Yes, Obama seems to be in just a touch over his head in this job. Like 20,000′ over his head.

    The lack of respect the man has for history disgusts me. Hardly the only example was when he put his up on the Resolute Desk.

    I want Romney to win so very much. The media here in Finland has been trumpeting for Obama’s victory for long time and demonizing Republicans, that I want to see them cry and froth. I am sick of all the claims about purity and good heart of Obama and Democrats and how bad Republicans try to keep minorities from voting and so on and so forth. Around here it is badge of honor among media if they have Obama’s pubic hair between their teeth.


  16. 16 | November 3, 2012 9:39 am

    Rasmussen column on the election. I’ve got to admit, if the latest Rasmussen poll (from Friday) has the race now tied, I’m a bit concerned. It’s sure not over, either way.

    @ mfhorn:

    The 48-48 is all within the statistical margin of error. It is a close election, but there is no substantive difference between the Romney 50 Obama 46 and the 48-48 split. I’ve been saying for months now that I thought that this was going to be a turnout election, and it looks like lI was right. Whomever has a better success at getting their voters to the polls and converting likely voters into actual voters will win.


  20. 20 | November 3, 2012 9:51 am

    @ mfhorn:

    The fact that Obama is not at 50% and drawing lukewarm crowds is interesting. Also he has no real bounce from Sandy. I decides will break for Romney I think. There is no real enthusiasm for Obama.

    FNC just ran a montage of various politicians praising Obama for what a great job he’s done with Sandy.

    Meanwhile, they’re still finding bodies on Staten Island.


  23. 23 | November 3, 2012 9:58 am

    @ Storagemanager:

    Precisely. Nothing has improved since 2010 that would have changed anything.

    Romney drew 30,000 in Ohio last night. Earlier that day Obama only drew 2900 and the venue was only half full.

    Only if Germany goes bankcrupt. The ESM is nothing else than to buy time. They have no clue what to do. About one third of all German savings are already in greece. One third of all savings not only what is in savings books but private pension funds, life insurances etc.

No blackface though, to blatantly obvious and not rightwing dogwistlish enough. Can’t wait for the responses from all of the oh so enlightened paxil addled yoga mom’s around here.

    So, aside from the complete absence of any accomplishments and a list of abject failures, he’s still a black man with an exotic name and that’s the only reason he voted for Obama in the first place. Sure, I get it, there’s a lot of that going around.

    My sister lives most of the time in Panama City FL but her husband’s med practice is in Dothan Alabama where she used to live full time. At least some of the Alabama crews that were turned away were from Dothan and somehow my sister got the idea that they were turned away by thugs in STATEN ISLAND!! So I had to correct that. Asfor it ‘not happening’ didnt I hear audio of union thugs yelling ‘scabs’?? I think I did.

    Don’t know if it’s been mentioned on here but one of the other reasons for the massive fuel shortage in the Northeast is because if you ship gasoline through Maryland you have to have a special permit that costs a lot of money. After the disaster the call went out for major shipments from all over the country & anyone who went through Maryland were pulled over & had their trucks & tankers impounded until they paid a several thousand dollar fine.

    You didn’t hear this mentioned in the media or by Dem politicians because they’re all covering for the thugs in the statehouses & unions who have compounded the effects of this calamity 100 fold with their overbearing draconian rules & regulations.

    I hope it’s a landslide, but I think it’s going to be a tight race. And the Obots will claim vote theft/suppression, then box after box of ‘uncounted’ ballots will be found in trunks & basements. Mysteriously, 90% of those will have ‘Obama’ marked, and we’ll be pressured to accept those as legit, even though they’ll result in turnout as high as 115% in some parts of the country.

    I’ve believed it will be a landslide since early this year. All we needed was a candidate. Think back to the mid-term elections of 2010. The dems were kicked out of office in record numbers. Has anything changed for the better since then? Has Chicago Jesus given us our promised salvation? Nope. Everything has gotten worse. The regime lies to the American people everyday. People are not less pissed than they were 2 years ago. Also, Michael Barone really knows his chili. I think he’s more reliable than Dick Morris and Barone shows a bigger victory than Morris.

    I have been saying for months that California is not the lock for Obama that everyone thinks it is, and my suspicion isn’t abating at all, in fact, I rather suspect that the results that come in early from the East Coast and the Midwest will dramatically alter the results here. Call it, bandwagon jumping if you will.

    I work for a major construction company that does utility work for lots of big companies all over the U.S. & Canada & I cut my teeth in pipeline work (primarily natural gas) & am a pipe-fitter & heavy equipment operator by trade but I used to do line work for a contractor of Dominion Power up until about 3 years ago. DP were always happy for our help & were very gracious especially when it came to working storm damage.

    We were working outages in the Northern Neck of Va. back in ’06 when severe super-cells roared through & took out a lot of poles with falling trees. A supervisor with Dominion (non-union guy) was coordinating the efforts with a few of our crews & overseeing the work & then directing us to the next location. The guy cut his teeth with a contractor & worked for one for most of his career & he made the mistake of climbing a pole & helping out. Just so happened a Dominion crew (union) went driving by & saw him & you would have thought he committed a heinous crime.

    Guy was heavily reprimanded after that & transferred far out the area & that division afterwards just to calm down the union. Damn good guy who like us always put the customer & company first, anything else be damned

    Now I’m not saying all these union guys were like that, most of ‘em like I said were very happy for our help & support but you always had that one or two guys in every area who lived, breathed & bled the union who they thought were the ones writing their paychecks. They didn’t give a rats ass about the company or the customer, it was always union first.

    I can imagine it’s a major headache…..no, I know it’s a major fucking headache working in the northeast around closed-shop guys since I’ve done plenty of work for Connectiv & Con Ed also.

    Indeed. But I have to say, I’m having trouble reconciling some things. Rasmussen, who is the only pollster I trust, has this as a dead heat. Yet there’s Barone AND the enormous crowds for Romney.

    I’m having trouble connecting those dots.

Call it, bandwagon jumping if you will.

    I still think CA will end up going for O-Hole. But you’re right. The momentum and trend are with Romney. He’s cut Bam’s lead in half.

    I’m in Northern Virginia and DP is our provider. Sandy hit our area hard based on number of outages but I have to say DP didn’t mess around. We were down only 14 hrs -- yeah, it was colder than a witch’s tit for awhile but the people in Montgomery County, MD (PEPCO is their provider) are ALWAYS screwed when the power goes out. Pepco always blames it on trees, and to some extent, that’s true -- but a LOT of it is their union guys.

    I also wonder about the Rasmussen poll. However, I’m going with my gut on this one. The momentum and enthusiasm are with Romney/Ryan and there is simply no case for re-electing Comrade Obama.

    DP is a damn good provider & like I said above in open shop states the union isn’t as much of a headache, especially below the Potemkintomac. A lot of damn good guys were for that company & some of them just so happen to be union by default but vote heavily Republican. These are the guys that understand there is a war on by the Oba’Mao administration upon their industry that wants to shutter coal & nuclear plants & hurt their customers & put them out of work.

    Unfortunately that same mindset hasn’t taken root with their brethren in the Norkeast.

    Like I said, expect to see a lot of Bandwagon Jumping from California on Tuesday. Obama didn’t win California in 2008 because people here believed his BS or because he was a Democrat, he won California because of white guilt and the supposed historic aspect of the election.

    The campaign says the former president’s path on Monday will include stops in Pittsburgh and Scranton as well as two events in Philadelphia.

    We had a guest speaker at the Ahwatukee (Phoenix neighborhood) Tea Party back towards the end of the summer, this gentleman was an Economics professor from Arizona State Univ, a supply-side conservative guy, and he said all his business contacts in California (C level people) were telling him that they thought Romney would pull off a surprise victory in California.

    Oh, I believe it, I know quiet a few business people myself, and they are 100 percent behind Mitt, in fact they can’t stand the Fraud-in-Chief.

    We have friends in Lynchburg, VA that both work at Liberty U.

    One of the nicest, prettiest places I’ve ever spent time.

    I have a real affinity for the ‘Burgh, though.

    I can see the Cathedral of Learning from my back deck across the hills, and it comforts me in a weird way.

    Getting very close here in WI. I sense that many voters will be turning R, and the local D’s will be in for another Statewide surprise. Walker has been deploying his organization (created during the recall) to get the Vote out.
