Steve Wonder's Obamapalooza Jamfest in Swing State Ohio Attracts... Less Than 200 People

I go with 50-48 in favor of Romney, > 300 EV margin of Victory.

You?

13 Damn!

I typed a comment in the Romney rally thread last night that even Stevie Wonder himself couldn't draw a crowd that size, but then I deleted it because I second guessed myself.

Ann Romney at the CO rally looked almost bored. I'm sure she is. How many times can she listen to Mitt give the same speech and be welcomed like a conquering hero? Sucks to be her.

On that topic, how the hell did Fox get away with showing the full 20 minutes of Romney's speech? That can't be legal. Not that I'm complaining.

cycled through Firefox, then Chrome a few years ago, and then back to IE due to some issues on specific sites.

The comments section here just works better with Chrome apparently, although Firefox may be fine too. Haven't tried yet. With Chrome, I hit "enter" once, and it leaves a space, like it's supposed to. Nothing all that special but IE just makes a mess of it.

84 Speaking of irritating: I've gotten at least one heavy-duty Mormon-bashing essay a day for three days. Mostly because I have an interest in religion, I guess.

In any case, it burns me because, while the basic facts are correct, the interpretations laid upon the facts - to make Romney's election into some sort of theocratic apocalypse - is just nuts. It's also offensive.

I may find Mormonism to be actively silly, but I have never found Mormons to be other than good neighbors and patriotic citizens. Trying to turn people against Mormons is simply and egregiously offensive.

87 lolz, I wonder how unmotivated the DNC base is.

For example, ace's tweet on Michigan yesterday. There are 5 million reg voters, abt 1.87 GOP voters floor min based on 2010 results with abt 1.3mil DNC floor. To get to 2.5m votes for the state, Romney only needs to GOTV enough R's and I's for about 700K extra voters of the remaining 1.9M who didn't bother vote in 2010.

But with I's breaking for R by 2 to 1, that's not a tall order. Of course, in 2008, of the non-hard R floor, abt 2.8M votered for Obama, so there's either a big swing or no swing in DNC punch right now to overcome the 1.87M hardcore gop voters

Obama losing on Tuesday will be very cathartic for the Democrat party.
They will bitch and moan about the loss, but in the end the liberals
will feel better. They've been holding in a very odoriferous fart for
four years, and after it's released, they'll stink up the place for a
period of time, and then return to extolling the virtues of socialism
and Marxism.

The excuse will be the same as every other failed
regime's excuse. The wrong person was in charge and if we had only
elected someone more left wing and better schooled in Marxist
principles, and willing to stick their ideology up America's collective
ass by force it would have succeeded.

It's not like anyone could have predicted some humungous storm was going
to hit the NE. It's not like we even stock this 'water' everyone's
talking about. Hell, the shelf life of bottled water is like what? Two,
maybe three days? It's not like you can just open some magic tap
somewhere in Mitt Romney's "Magic Land", and just fill tankers of water
for literally pennies per ton. This is the real world, and with our
budget cut to the very bone with barely a 300% increase in funding since
our dear, and loved leader, President Barack Obama first took office,
it's not surprising at all that as stretched so thin as we are that some temporary emergency shortages don't crop up from time to time.



Hell...if you cheap bastards hadn't stiffed us on those spiffy (yet
toxic) Katrina Trailers, I'm confident the ever vigilant offices of
FEMA, and it's tens of thousands of dedicated employees, would at this
very point in time have already decided on the seating arrangements for
our first Emergency meeting on the Predicted Impacts of Hurricane Sandy
on our Short Term Catering, and Entertainment Expenditure Request, and Report, (FY 2013), or EMOTPIOHSOOSTCAEERAR, for short.

Krauthammer and Kristol are right, as usual, and Krauthammer and Kristol agree with me, as usual.

Krauthammer's point -- Sandy helped Obama a lot and stymied, somewhat reversed Romney's momentum.

Kristol's point -- Obama should have attacked on Benghazi; it could have been the tie breaker.

Both believe the race is about tied.

What are you talking about?

I've been making both points for days (and on Benghazi, weeks).

They believe the race is basically tied, but Kristol at least (not in the video, in another article on his site) gives advantage Romney.

I do also.

I've said I predict a narrow Romney win, with a larger Romney win or a narrow (but not a large) Obama win possible.

Since I don't know whos's going to win the election, I can hardly have "confidence" about it.

And then a funny thing happened on the way to the polls.

And while everybody bitched and moaned about Reagan, nobody ever really talked about how much the missed Carter - or really mentioned him at all.

I do feel compelled to remind you about Rules for Morons Number One:
If you don't know what something is, don't ask. If you don't know what
something is, do not try to figure it out. Most importantly, if you
don't know what something is, for the love of all that's unholy, do not
look it up!

303 Rules:

1) No death threats or other illegal evil crap.
2) PC rules relaxed, but for the love of everything holy don't be slinging the race/sex epithets pejoratively.

Pretty much anything that starts off "All women..." or "All -race here-..." needs to be a pretty dispassionate line.

Like: "All women should be trained in using the longbow while knee deep in pudding, because the crossbow is for Yankee pussies."

313 >>>You were much more confident just upthread...

I predicted a 50-48 Romney win (as my best guess, with a larger win or a narrow loss to Obama both quite possible). That's a narrow margin. And that doesn't take into effect rounding. Plus the electoral map favors Obama more in a very tight race.

So no, I didn't make a confident bold prediction Romney has it in the bag. I was mocking such over-the-top certitude yesterday.

I think he's got the edge. I think he'd have had more of the edge had he brought up Benghazi more (Kristol's position). I also, agreeing with Krauthammer (and having made the point before he did), see that Sandy helped Obama. A lot.

I was confident in a Romney win over a week ago. That's lessened since then. Still hopeful.

She showed me a FL example ballot and there are about 10 presidential candidates on it. I think TX only had 3 or 4.

Maybe not, but I have, and I'll tell you the general mood on this blog was overconfident (above what the GOP actually performed) in '06, '08, and '10.

I was very overconfident myself in '06, having bought into AJ Strata's "analysis". That was a bitter, bitter election, and made me reduce my estimation of the GOP's performance in each of the next two elections.

Nonetheless, I believed at the last moment that McCain could pull it out in '08 and thought his last-minute push into PA meant something real. We lost way more than I thought we would (I knew we were behind at least).

During that election, so many people were going on about Eeyorism, especially to Allahpundit and Ace, that Ace literally had to LIE to his readership to lessen the pressure and keep them engaged in the election, plus reading the blog. After the election, he wrote a post admitting he didn't have confidence in McCain to win and was basically bullshitting for morale purposes. Except he did, in fact, use the word "lie".

In 2010, I thought the truth was somewhere between Morris's 100 seat pickup and the 60 we actually got. So even THEN I was overoptimistic

Still called an Eeyore tons.

So, my question for myself and you is, did I finally strike the right balance and shave enough of my optimism to get a realistic estimate? Narrow Romney win?

Or am I overoptimistic again and Krauthammer's dejected demeanor in that video I linked to above is what I should be feeling?

370 Mrs. New and I don't understand "socks". What does it mean?

Long, long ago there was a newspaper idiot whose name escapes me that spent time making up false accounts and commenting on his own damn articles. "Written by a God of English" type over-the-top crap. He got caught and his excuse was "Well, everyone uses sock-puppets like this!" Or something.

So: generic term for lying about identity beyond the normal "I picked an alias and I'm sticking with it."

People -here- pretend to be, say "Joe Biden" saying things like "FOUR MORE DAYS!" or whatever. Because there's no actual -account- here, easy to put a fake name in. SO check the name if you're all like WTFBBQ?.

But the five characters at the very end (MzQOZ in my case) are a hash (think: code) version of the IP address of my computer. No one (but Ace FBI) can figure out your real IP. But it's a signal of who is a pretending to be a random idiot with their hair on fire today.

Pretty easy to identify -new- posters that way. Note that some people get new IPs from their ISP on a regular basis, and others have different hashes at different times of the day.

And the majority of the true, complete trolls use proxies and are always different random hashes. (The others are actually submissives that apparently have no upper-limit on their pain tolerance.)

382 346 Not me. Ronaldus Maximus made my life considerably easier.

Don't get me wrong, I didn't (bitch), but I live in CA, and even though we voted for him twice (that's 2x for the trolls) nobody ever fessed up to voting that way.

I graduated right as he was in put in office - and that was a terrible recession. I struggled months to get a job. But by the time he was out of office I had a business. It was about that time that my wife, a flaming liberal saw what good liberal policies can do for a small business owner and home owner. Needless to say, she's firmly conservative now - embarrassingly so.

383 I got a call from some telemarketer today peddling some bs about how i had won my dream vacation.

I kept asking who he was and how he got my number and he kept avoiding answering and asking me what credit cards i had so that he could verify me for my dream vacation.

Finally i said, look i am not interested in a dream vacation. The only dream i have is replacing Barack Obama in three days.

He then called me a jerk and hung up.

Look again at the polls the week before Mitt Romney was elected Gov. of Mass in 2002. I wrote this up a while ago, link in my nic.

Aha! I have that problem myself - and my mom did, too. In fact, mom was diagnosed in her teens, back in the early 1940s before they could do blood tests for it... Hypothyroidism can make you feel REALLY lousy and do other crummy things, but one little pill a day can really help. Hope that's all it is and she starts feeling better!

392 I kept forgetting to talk about the Obama Biden signs I see on my way to work every day. I see 2! In the same yard. Now there was for a short time someone had made their own ugly Obama Biden Sign. It was approximately 4' X 4' with Obama Biden painted on it. It lasted about 4 days, before some practical joker defaced it. I saw it coming home at night so I could make out that "Go Browns" had been written in the middle of Obama Biden. And the next day going to work I saw the rest of the handiwork. They had spraypainted an "N" in front of Obama in orange. And an "No" infront of Biden, to make it "NObama NoBiden." I think the sign was gone by the time I came home that night.

398 A few days before the election in 2008, polls were showing Obama ahead by about 3-4 points, national polls that is; almost outside the margin of error. Turned out most of them were pretty accurate. So if polls, especially Rasmussen and Gallup (at least before Sandy) are showing a tie, then it really is probably pretty close. Hopefully Romney gets some separation in e next couple of days.

469 Thanks to all for the concern and comments about thyroid. We're hoping that's what it is. All the symptoms seem to be there.

Fingers crossed for a speedy resolution of Mrs. B's troubles. Still, 14 vials of blood? That is a little creepy right there. And, my own personal theory of medical shit (and my doc usually agrees) is, let's try the pill for what we think it is and if it works, then we will know without all that blood and costly lab work. But, that's just me.

472 The funny thing, Mirror-universe and others who think like you, is you actually seem to think that the Obama campaign is recruiting trolls to slam the President as a coward and a lying foreign-policy failure who's hurt the economy, wasted time on unpopular counterproductive national healthcare, associated with domestic terrorists including one whose organization bombed the Pentagon (and I think Ayers' ghost write the better of Obama's two autobiographies too), and for what?

Why all the sharp questions, not all of which have been asked by major media figures, did I place on rightscoop the other day?

What's the master plan with this?

To slag the President on his weakest points as a "cover" so I can piss off some Ace of Spades commenters by predicting a narrow (therefore, GOTV!) rather than blowout Romney victory?

THAT is your theory?

Yeah, obscene amount of blood. They took 8 initially. Then 2 every hour during 3 hour glucose tolerance test. The problem is, while the thyroid is most likely, the symptoms cover a shitload of potential issues. Better to test for it all at once than have to keep going back.

536 Do y'all remember the boated flatulent toad Michael Moore's Snak Ramen and and Hanes Whitie Tidy college tours of ye olde 2004 election? That was my raving lunacy that year. I had sons all over the state, at UF, FSU and USF, and this weapons-grade b.o. repulsive creature was here (there was a hysterical article that I never knew if it was satire, describing him coming to K-Mart to buy up ammo, as guns are bad after Columbine. He went to the head honcho of K-Mart munching on Doritos. Anyway, supposedly, the leather chair he sat on had to be thrown away he was so gross. Somehow that description never left me, but I digress. But this is why I always refer to him as weapons-grade body odor).

Anyway, some Florida tuition money was going to pay this creep 20K or something per speech, and I called everyone, ranting and demanding a conservative come to balance his circus act. I am sure there is still a file on me at UF, as I especially got under their skin. The chancellor of universities in Florida's office called me. I was on a roll. Gov. Bush's office had to soothe me. Anyway, the college kids would attend and, yeah, promise to vote for Kerry. Guess what? They slept in and/or forgot. All of Michael's money wasted on them while they got wasted after getting free underwear and dried soup. He was even registering them to vote. There were stealth GOP kids on campuses across Florida. At FSU, my favorite of all, Republicans showed up in masses on campus on election day, wearing Bush/Cheney buttons. My sons had told me that the kids were smarter than to fall for Moore (they were mortified by me, naturally, Honey Badger Mom). I just hated that he was even in the state, he is so repulsive.

I am thinking it is more cool, thanks to Ryan and the fact that 50% of college grads can't find jobs, to be GOP this year on campus. But for those who are faking being Obamabots, they may vote GOP in the booth or just not bother. At the Romney/Ryan rally we hooked up with some of one of my son's friends, smart software consultants. There was a guy there who is a Dem they were working on. They said he claims to be for Barky but they think he will vote (R) in private. We'll see. There were a lot of high school and college kids there.

572 Hurricane help President Messiah? In a sense it did not because it made people suddently decide to vote for BO after all but because it sucked up the news cycles for a couple of days when Mitt was making his final run. But BO the savior story is now no food/water/gas/misery story. Besides people don't vote based on a one day photo op. If they do then why do we bother with conventions, commercials, debates, and speeches.
I think Mitt handled Benghazi appropriately. He could not be seen trying to capitalize on the death of 4 Americans. I do think he thought the media, even with their bias, could not ignore the story. Yes, he may have been naive on that. Besides he did bring it up twice and look at what happened. Also, no campaign is perfect. If BO had better prepared for the first debate . . . If BO had given a better speech at his convention . . .
Why I think Mitt wins: If BO is ahead in the polls why is there no talk of the Dems taking the House? Heck, the word is Reps maintain their current majority or add to it slightly. Why is it a given that the Reps will gain Senate seats? Obama voters are going to vote for Dems, right? There's no movement or enthusiasm down ticket in the Democrat ranks.

It will hold almost twice that much if you cram people into the empty part between the stage and the seats, and let them hang out in the "hallways", too.

651 A few Ace standards:

Socks/sockpuppets - usually done to make a joke or mock a troll. Pick a name and comment with it for humor or to make a point.

The Sock can have its 'memes' too such as the Charlie Gibson "never heard of it" one from an idiotic comment he made a while back.

Integrity kick - There's a series of Paul Anka rant posts in the greatest hits sidebar, where he goes off on this hilarious tirade chewing out his band for not having integrity.

Ewok references - The Ace himself has a slight resemblence to and refers to himself as an Ewok

Hobos - hunting hobos and chugging Valu-Rite Vodka is a common callback here as well, basically a way of talking about a wasted and stupd life people joke about having

Moron - and moron-ette, often just 'ron and 'ette. Refers self-deprecatingly to the commenters here.

Breitbart and not reading posts - Andrew Breitbart, before he died, would come to this blog and he said he loved the comments, then joked that he didn't read the posts. At least, I think he was joking

Long movie reviews - Ace goes into very great depth analyzing films and I love the posts but people giggle about how long they are.

Pudding - Ace came up with the idea of being so very happy with the Democratic Party not winning the Massachusetts seat vacated by Ted Kennedy, he was going to dip his furry beanbags in pudding if Brown won. He was at the Brown celebration, handing out pudding cups. now its pretty much dipping anything.

Johnny Coldcuts - a theme Ace used to do back a while ago where he had a picture of a sandwich with eyes that was for some reason hilarious and put foul mouthed captions under it.

The Flaming Skull - when some major story comes out, Ace doesn't have a drudge alarm, he has a skull, on fire. Sometimes its altered, such as a feather to represent Elizabeth the fake Cherokee Warren or a hair helmet for news about Blagojevich.

There are a lot more

660 So obama had a big crowd with a free concert from katy perry?

And Obama with Stevie Wonder gets barely 200. So let us parse this. Remove Obama and musician from both sides of the equation.

(Obama + musician) / 200 = (Obama + musician + boobs) / 20000

becomes

1 / 200 = boobs / 20000

hence

20000 / 200 = boobs

therefore

100 = boobs

We conclude that Katy Perry's boobs are a perfect 100.

Just saw him on C-SPan, most of it anyway. Thanks to the poster above who told us the time. I still don't know is some other pol was with him, though. I guess from what I heard from the OH rally last night, all those stars like Rubio and the others "fanned out" to go to rallies elsewhere.
Checked out Huckabee on Fox and he had Rob Portman on. Portman said what he did the other day, that "it's close" but he does believe they will win. I get the feeling (since I was unfamiliar with the Senator before he became Mitt's closest bud on the campaign) that he's an upbeat kind of guy, soft but firm voice, knowledgeable, and personable so maybe it's just his personality that is influencing me, but I sure got the impression he wasn't acting, that he thinks this is ours as long as we get out the vote.
To the poster who told us what Campaign Carl Cameron said was the mood on Mitt's plane. Great. I'd heard that Romney is forever playing jokes on people on the plane and that he does the best Ben Stein.

I'm going to be relieved and hopeful after Romney wins, but at some point someone has to step up to the plate and break the ratchet. Close the borders, pass strict voter ID laws in every state, and, ideally, move voting stations to the centers of active volcanoes. Voting should be hard.

Charles Johnson - and various variant spellings. Just mocking him for doing a total 180 on his various positions and claiming integrity.

Ron Paul - usually referred to as Luap Nor and other things to avoid stating the word and summoning Paulites (like saying Beetlejuice too often).

I read the Cleveland Plain Dealer article on the Stevie Wonder thing. Obama's campaign evidently didn't tweet out to their followers the notice that Wonder was performing at 10:00 am until 9:30. I don't know if that's true or not--it's what they said. The article went on to say that almost all those there said they'd already voted but busses were waiting for those who hadn't.
Blacks are going to turn out, that's for sure. They might not reach the turn out of 4 years ago, but they'll be a hefty voting block. I am hoping Hispanics will not. I am hoping there are enough Reagan Dems to add to huge conservative and GOP turn out, but damn, think of all the brainwashing of generations of Americans in our public schools.
Makes you wonder if people really want to work.
Now, to contradict myself totally (because I am nervous, one minute confident, the next minute trying to curb my confidence and tap it down torelatively optimistic: I am wondering if that hiddenvideo that was supposed to destroy Romney (the 47% thing) didn't awaken a sleeping giant, a silent majority who said, "Damn, that's what I think."

With the latest Rasmussen tracking poll just out showing a tie, swinging the RCP average a little further in Obama's direction, and supporting my overall thesis that he regained the last-minute momentum with retards because of Sandy coverage (and thrice cursed Chris Christie who stepped all over Romney's closing argument of bipartisanship with a HUG, for fuck sakes!), and seeing the great Krauthammer dejectedly make my point about how lucky Obama is and how much Sandy helped him today on Fox alongside Kristol, I now half to adjust my prediction to:

Narrow Obama victory (at least in electoral votes).

And it sucks. It really does.
