    Breaking: GEN Tommy Franks, GEN Hugh Shelton Among 500 American Warriors to Run Full-Page Ad Endorsing Mitt Romney for President

    A star-studded list of retired high ranking US military officers is set to shake up the presidential race as the nation heads into Election Day, November 6. GEN Hugh Shelton (USA-ret) and GEN Tommy Franks (USA-ret) are among the military heavyweights who are taking out a full page ad in Monday’s Washington Times, the Tatler has learned

    ROMNEY 49 OBAMA 49



    A total of 1,010 adults were interviewed by telephone nationwide by live interviewers calling both landline and cell phones. All
    respondents were asked questions concerning basic demographics, and the entire sample was weighted to reflect national Census
    figures for gender, race, age, education, region of country, telephone usage and whether respondents own or rent their homes.
    Registered voters were asked questions about their likelihood of voting, past voting behavior, and interest in the campaign; based
    on answers to those questions, 693 respondents were classified as likely voters. Respondents who reported that they had already
    cast an absentee ballot or voted early were automatically classified as likely voters. Among those likely voters, 41% described
    themselves as Democrats, 29% described themselves as Independents, and 30% described themselves as Republicans.



    now look how they managed the likely voter breakdown

    693 respondents were classified as likely voters.
    41% described themselves as Democrats,
    29% described themselves as Independents, and
    30% described themselves as Republicans


    SO they have a tie among Likely Voters with a D+11 sample???

    Description in the Hitchhiker’s Guide

    Vogon poetry is of course, the third worst in the universe. The second worst is that of the Azgoths of Kria. During a recitation by their poet master Grunthos the Flatulent of his poem “Ode To A Small Lump Of Green Putty I Found In My Armpit One Midsummer Morning ” four of his audience died of internal hemorrhaging and the president of the Mid-Galactic Arts Nobbling Council survived only by gnawing one of his own legs off. Grunthos was reported to have been “disappointed” by the poem’s reception, and was about to embark on a reading of his 12-book epic entitled “My Favourite Bathtime Gurgles” when his own major intestine–in a desperate attempt to save life itself–leapt straight up through his neck and throttled his brain. The very worst poetry of all perished along with its creator, Paula Nancy Millstone Jennings of Sussex, in the destruction of the planet Earth. Vogon poetry is mild by comparison.

    Oh freddled gruntbuggly,
    Thy micturitions are to me,
    As plurdled gabbleblotchits,
    On a lurgid bee,
    That mordiously hath bitled out,
    Its earted jurtles,
    Into a rancid festering confectious inchulsphygnum. [drowned out by moaning and screaming]
    Now the jurpling slayjid agrocrustles,
    Are slurping hagrilly up the axlegrurts,
    And living glupules frart and slipulate,
    Like jowling meated liverslime,
    Groop, I implore thee, my foonting turling dromes,
    And hooptiously drangle me,
    With crinkly bindlewurdles,
    Or else I shall rend thee in the gobberwarts with my blurglecruncheon,
    See if I don’t.

    Leave it to the f-ing MSM. Did not know this.

    So, I’m skimming this this piece by Mark Stein and I read:

    …Even more extraordinary, on Sept. 14, fewer than two dozen inbred, illiterate goatherds pulled off the biggest single destruction of U.S. airpower since the Tet Offensive in 1968, breaking into Camp Bastion (an unfortunate choice of name) in Afghanistan, killing Lieutenant-Colonel Christopher Raible, and blowing up a squadron’s worth of Harriers. [emphasis mine -admin] And, even though it was the third international humiliation for the United States in as many days, it didn’t even make the papers. Because the court eunuchs at the media are too busy drooling over Obama’s appearance as what he calls “eye candy” on the couch between Barbara and Whoopi.

    Romney tied in CNN’s D+11 Poll:

    The latest CNN national poll of likely voters, which shows a 49%-49% tie between Republican challenger Mitt Romney and incumbent President Barack Obama, is either absurd, or very good news for the GOP–or both.

    Romney has gained 3 points since the last time CNN ran its poll, in late September, when Obama led 50%-47%. That is good news for the Republican ticket, especially since the poll was conducted after Hurricane Sandy.

    Yet there is something odd–and even ridiculous–in the poll’s sample: of the 693 likely voters in the total sample of 1,010 adults polled, “41% described themselves as Democrats, 29% described themselves as Independents, and 30% described themselves as Republicans.”

    In other words, the poll is a D+11 outlier. It presents a picture of an electorate that is far more pro-Obama than it was in the historic 2008 election. That is extremely unlikely.

    Momentum. We’ve got it. Obama doesn’t. If Obama can’t win a D+11 (11ty!!) poll, he probably can’t win the Presidency. We won’t know until tomorrow, but all signs are fortuitous.

Romney would be slaughtering him with a D+1 or D+0 sample, let along an R+1 sample like Gallup is predicting. This is why you have to watch polls. You can’t just rely on the numbers they give you. You have to look at how they got those numbers. That is something the Outsider and Ferb just can’t seem to comprehend. I think our readers are smarter than that, though. One more day and a wakeup. I don’t intend to sleep tomorrow night until it is done. Of course, if Romney wins Pennsylvania, it may be done fairly early!

    Indeed. Sometimes one votes not only to let one’s choice be known, but to also nullify another’s choice.

    As President Obama closes out his presidential campaign on Monday with stops featuring A-List celebrities like rapper Jay-Z and rocker Bruce Springsteen, many of the victims of Hurricane Sandy are still waiting for federal, state and local assistance. Scenes of increased desperation — residents wielding bows and arrows against possible looters, tempers flaring in long gasoline lines, and impassioned pleas to officials for help — are highlighting what has become an uneven recovery from the storm.

    @ Storagemanager:
    Concur with your sentiments. There will be some drinking taking place in WI as well — more when folks see the outcome of the election. Do not make the mistake of thinking WI will go to the Dems — instead, think of the outcome of the June recall election. WI just might turn R.

    Oh, I wish! I don’t drink any more, but I wish all those who do a merry time! It is going to be strssful as hell. This is the most significant election since the election of 1864. Like 1864, it is an existential election for the United States. We really can’t surtvive another four years of Obama. Just the debt alone will kill us. We’ll be at over $20 trillion by 2016 if Obama is re-elected. We already owe more compared to our GDP than Germany did in the Treaty of Versailles. Obama added 50% to the national debt, and we got nothing in return. It’d be one thing if he’d bought a couple of more carrier battle groups, and bumped the whole Navy back up to over 300 ships, but he didn’t do that. He could have initiated a crash course to nuclearize the American power grid if he is really so concerned about GoreBull Warming, but he didn’t do that either. We got nothing but crony socialism for our money. He did pay some guy $2.6 million to go to China and teach hookers how to drink. There’s wise use of our tax dollars… :roll:

    I’ve been saying for a while that the Electoral Machine that produced June’s recall results would deliver Wisconsin to us. We’ve really won the last four elections straight there, so Wisconsin isn’t looking as purple as it used to. I hope Romney has coat-tails for the Senate there. I am really not too terribly worried about the Presidential election. Even the cooked polls have it tied, and that would make it a turnout election. And even the cooked polls have Romney up by big margins with the independents. That’s why they are having to cook the polls to the tune of D+11 to get a tie. No, I think we’ll win the Presidency. I don’t know if we’ll get the Senate, though. I think that will be close. I think someone will wind up with a 51 vote majority, but it could be the Democrats. We’ll see.

    Back on September 13th, Senator John McCain appeared on Hannity, the television program of the popular conservative talk show host, to discuss the recent 9/11 attacks. When the topic turned to Libya, the Senator from Arizona was quick to accuse Sean of having been wrong about Islamists taking control of Libya. Hannity appeared to be slightly taken aback as McCain did everything but stick his tongue out at those (Hannity included) who had expressed concern that Libya had fallen into the hands of the Islamists, saying, “You were wrong about Libya… I know you were… you were wrong.”

    Documents recently obtained and translated by Walid seem to demonstrate that McCain is the one who is wrong and Sean Hannity was the one who was right.

    A common complaint of westerners who try to read about the Middle East is the sheer volume of Arabic names they must sift through to reach a modicum of understanding; they lose track and often move on. There’s one name that such westerners should grok and it is Abdel Hakim Belhaj. As we previously reported, Belhaj was officially put in charge of Tripoli from August 30, 2011 thru at least May of 2012. He is radical and has been identified as a ‘brother’ of al-Qaeda by Ayman al-Zawahiri.

    Paul Ryan draws large crowd in Liberal Minnesota:

    With a new American Future Fund poll showing Mitt Romney with a one-point lead in liberal Minnesota, Paul Ryan went to the state President Barack Obama won by more than 10 percentage points in 2008 and drew a crowd of nearly 9,000 people on Sunday.

    A source who was at the event told Breitbart News Minnesota GOP Chair Pat Shortridge announced 9,000 people were in attendance, and Ryan said another 1,000 people had to be turned away because the venue was filled to capacity.

    Ryan’s campaign appearance in Minnesota represents how the Romney campaign is aggressively playing offense on Obama’s electoral turf to expand the electoral map. Obama has spent the last weeks of the campaign on defense, trying to hold onto states — like Minnesota and Wisconsin — he comfortably won in 2008 and were once included in the campaign’s baseline of states guaranteed to go into Obama’s electoral column,

    According to NBC News, it was Ryan’s largest solo event to date.

    I don’t think we’ll win Minnesota. If we do, it will be a blowout of epic proportions. But that Ryan is drwawing this large a crowd there is encouraging.

    election officals in florida manage to make a mess again

    Democrats Sue to Extend Florida’s Early Voting

    In a state where legal action often goes hand in hand with presidential elections, the Florida Democratic Party filed a federal lawsuit early Sunday to force the state government to extend early voting hours in South Florida.

    The lawsuit was filed after a stream of complaints from voters who sometimes waited nearly seven hours to vote or who did not vote at all because they could not wait for so long to do so.

    Shortly after the lawsuit was filed, local election supervisors in Miami-Dade and Palm Beach Counties, where lines sometimes snaked out the door and around buildings, said they would allow voters to request and cast absentee ballots on Sunday. Voters in three other Florida counties will also be able to pick up and drop off absentee ballots. State election law permits election offices to receive absentee ballots through Tuesday as long as they are cast in person.

    But later on Sunday, Miami-Dade’s county election supervisor closed down the line for absentee ballots after two hours at its Doral office. It was eventually reopened, and election officials said that anyone in line by 5 p.m. would be able to drop off a ballot.

    500 senior admirals and generals took out an ad today in the Washington Times to declare their support for Mitt Romney. The professional core of the U.S. military overwhelmingly favors Mitt Romney over President Obama by a two-to-one margin.
    The NC Times reported:

    Hundreds of former senior military leaders have taken out an ad in Monday’s Washington Times newspaper declaring their support for Republican Mitt Romney, a rare if not unprecedented action in the final days of a presidential campaign.

    “We, the undersigned, proudly support Governor Mitt Romney as our nation’s next President and Commander-in-Chief,” says the advertisement, which is signed by some 500 retired flag and general officers representing major branches of the U.S. military.

    James J. Carey, a retired Navy rear admiral, told friends and colleagues in a written message that it was important for the group “to take a public stand on how very important it is that our fellow Americans choose a new Commander-in-Chief” on Tuesday. Carey is national chairman of the National Defense Committee.

    The dissatisfaction with Obama among many former military leaders runs the gamut — from his handling of the attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya, to his possible allowing of billions of dollars in prospective defense cuts, to his presiding over a dour economy over the last four years, according to interviews with two local signatories.

    Retired Rear Adm. George K. Worthington, a former SEAL commander, noted the deaths of two ex-SEALs among the four killed during the consulate attack in Lybia. The former SEALs, both government contractors, were Glen Doherty of Encinitas and Tyrone Woods of Imperial Beach.

    @ rain of lead:

    found this post at another blog

    The long lines in FL are not because of an inadequate number of polling stations. It’s cause we have ten amendments on the ballot and they are all damned long and in legalese (of course). So the problem is that most people aren’t inclined enough to look at the sample ballot they send out at least two weeks ahead of time, figure out what you want to vote for or against, mark the ballot, and bring the damned thing with you when you vote. It’s taking some folks fifteen minutes to vote because they have to read all the stuff on the ballot
