Guess what those international election observers have to say. They can’t believe we let people vote without ID. “It’s an incredible system,” said Nuri K. Elabbar, from Libya. “This system is built according to trust…” Another observer, from Lebanon, was amazed that the handling of ballots after the voting ends is entrusted to local poll workers. Sounds like they’re saying what Republicans have been saying: our election system enables fraud.

I know! What a hoot. Liberals thought they would come in and point out how the evil Republicans were impeding the right to vote. Instead, they can’t believe we don’t ask for ID.

The law of unintended consequences in action.

Yes American elections were built on trust and that trust still exists in many places—but not in our Democrat controlled Third World cities like Philadelphia, Chicago, Newark and Detroit. These are cities where political corruption is an accepted fact of life and where you shut up and vote as you’re told.

As of right now, with 64% of the votes counted in Ohio, Mitt’s down by 90,000 votes. Hope those other 36% of votes are in Republican leaning areas.

They are holding out on calling Va and ohio. Their own maps show both states overerwhelmngly red, but with maybe 10-15 counties that haven’t reported, so they still say he will win both states. Of course as I speak, they have assigned 274 Electoral votes to Obama, with all he blue lobs in the Northeast, around Illinois, Wisconsin,. etc and the west coast. Oh and New Mexico. Everything else reported is red. Popular vote puts Romney ahead, but because no one will make the electoral college divide their votes according to the popular vote, instead of winner take all, its irrelevant. Its official. Americans. at least those who voted for Obama, are retarded. 2008 people were looking for change. Now, with all the evidence before them of how stupid Obama is (ore really smart if you thing his objective was to destabilize the economy and thus the country) they voted for him again. With no looming election in the future, and the ability to pretty much do anything he wants with zero consequences, I dread to think what the next 4 years will look like. I’m hoping this will be like the Dewey-Truman election, but I’m not holding my breath.

Obama / Biden
DEM 3,761,720
49.81%

Johnson / Gray

I’m trying to stay positive here, I really wish this election wasn’t as close as it is and Romney won Pa and Fl by now and we can all go to bed happy. Really we might not know for weeks who won. So I will save my comments about your Libertarian party blame game for another day, just to stay positive.

Well, this is still the Fox board and Wisc might still shift back for mitt, he’s still leading by a decent margin. staying narrowwly ahead in va., not called yet. Washington is razor-thin with only 10% in

Unbelievable. Every douchebag the dems have put up are winning. Warren, give me a break. Menendez, sheesh. Grayson, WTF.
Obie/Jarret have 163 EV. Calif, Ore, Wash, and HI put him over the top even w/o MN and IA, and the way its looking they will go his way too.
Once again I am overwhelmed by the stupidity.
Last election I gave people a break as they were caught up in the black deal. This time, when then the O voters start whining, I have two words for them and it’s not “lets dance.”

You could get away with it. People don’t care enough to protect the election process.

However, the Saturday night before the election, I drove from the Twin Cities down highway 169 to Mankato to attend a college hockey game between the Minnesota Gophers @ the Minnesota State Mavericks. I got there a bit early, & while waiting in the lobby for the gates to open, I watched dozens of people go to Will Call, & produce an ID to get their tickets. Can’t get into the arena without a ticket, & you could’nt get them without an ID.
