Mitt Romney's 'Red Rocks' Ad, Modified

Here is the original. I swapped out the audio with the greatest victory music evah, "Flying Home" from the movie Kick Ass. The music fit almost perfectly. Just a couple of tweaks to the video. It's below the fold.

@Tmi3rd thought it would be a good idea to put up inspiring music and scenes to get people charged up for the election. So here's a little of both. If anyone has anything uplifting, this might be a good thread for it. If not, open thread.

Goosebumps? Huh? Come on.

We're gonna win this thing. Obama had his chance. He hates America anyway. Time to give Mitt a try.

Douglas Wilder refuses to endorse Obama. Basically, he had a backhanded endorsement of Romney.

When the story of this campaign is written there will be two points of inflection.

The first debate where we found out we could believe in Mitt.

And Red Rocks where Mitt learned he could believe in us.

15 I don't know about you guys but since McCain had won the nomineeship in 2008, I honestly think that was the best move. The country at the time was clueless and was going for vote for anyone but who resembled Bush and that was McCain at the time. Romney taking this spot and over the disgust of Democrat governing for the last 4 years is just the right timing. Yes, it's unfortunate that we had to pay 4 trillion for that lesson.

I disagree. This is a gigantic national story. Wilder's been hinting this for some time. He doesn't really care about his own political career, as far as I can tell.

Wilder was the first First Black Whatever. It was a big deal when he got elected and, as far as I can tell, he was actually competent at the job.

22 I got nuthin'. Except for 2,000,000 people in NJ, PA, NY, and CT still without power. Then there's the little item of 'Sandy - The Sequel' which is gonna work its way up the coast on Tuesday night into Wednesday as a nor'easter and punch the same area in the 'nads again. Since sequels traditionally suck, it's not likely to be as bad as the original, but the potential for real low barometric pressure in some of the models suggest serious flooding for the same areas.

23 Hopefully I talked a guy at church into voting for Romney instead of himself as write-in. He knew O was awful but didn't seem to know much about Romney. Since he's retired military I reminded him of Benghazi and since he's disabled from a car accident I told him I completely understood about fear of losing government payments, but that (at least in my case) gettting the government out of the economy would mean I didn't *need* the government money.

I also reminded him that Romney will need a definite popular win to overcome the margin of fraud and for the Senate to flip R so he doesn't spen the next 4 years fighting Reid who seems to hate him personally and would delight in blocking important initiatives just to thwart him, no matter the cost to the nation.

Yes, I think people will be so stunned and appreciative at having the largest economy in the world run by people who understand economics that Ryan will win in a cakewalk in 2020. The last remaining shriveled bits of Liberal carrion will still be in the universities and the media, but, they will be trivialized in the face of overwhelming competence and results.

I care for a disabled loved one,it's only been the past two years that there have been any significant cuts to his services. From Clinton through Bushhis benefits were never in jeopardy. If he even wanted to get Section 8 housing now, he'd have to wait 3 years, the system is so clogged by the newly poor.

The millions of jobs created in a Romney economy will deliver more revenues to the Treasury. The disabled will actually benefit from a Romney presidency, especially if he can gutObamacare. They get shoestring medical care as it is.If Obamacare stands pat, they'll be the first ones sent to the Soylent greenprocessing plant.

50 Just got a note from a friend on Staten Island, she said don't believe the MFM. There was no free gas supplied by DoD to get these people out of a jam.

Oh, the fuel trucks were there alright, but when they saw the line for gas was 5 miles long, they changed course and said the gas was only for emergency vehicles. Ever see a five mile long line of REALLY pissed off people?

She also said that it took them a couple days to get their heads around it, but now they are helping themselves. High schools, churches, restaurateurs, Mom and Pop retailers, they are all making things happen without government.

Her final parting words?

51 One of the things that really comes out at these rallies is that both Romney and Ryan really *like* America and Americans. They're not blind to imperfections, but they're not blind to the wonderful and amazing things about this country like President "Fundamental Change" is. It's a breath of fresh air how clearly they show that they trust the American people to get the nation back on track if the government gets out of the way.

I'm so happy to have been proved wildly wrong and have become ever more convinced that *if* a team can pull the nation out economically it's Romney/Ryan.

82 Color me in the blowout camp. We need a mandate, not a lukewarm victory and we need the coattails to drag Republicans across the line in the House and Senate. The nominations and EASY of Sotomayor and Kagan were terrifying. Sotomayor had been overturned on appeals in the plus 70% range and is clearly incompetent to even preside over traffic court and yet we will have to deal with her dumb opinions for decades. Kagan was a big part of Obamacare's actual drafting and yet, she did not recuse herself. Then we find out they somehow got to Roberts and he folds like a broken ironing board. If we have 8 years of Romney and 8 years of Ryan, we can get the SCOTUS back on reasonable grounds.

Proud to report to the Moron Horde that my year long efforts to convince my wife to vote Romney have succeeded! Life Long Dem going to the Rs for the first time in her life. The key? The newspaper editorials, promoted in subtle fashion by yours truly. The preference cascade is alive and well, people. We are going to win this thing.

I am in Tampa visiting friends this weekend (live in the Midwest). Went to a Gators game in Gainesville. 90% of the signs, buttons,etc. are for Romney. All good vibes.

Posted by: Bulldog at November 04, 2012 01:58 PM (Z4sey)

84 I no longer think the election is going to be an easy win for Obama. I have to believe that our side has to be more enthused to vote on Tuesday. It would really be a shocker if our side doesnt turn out like we did in 2010. Perhaps a little concern about Indies and more so "undecideds". People who havent been sure over the last month or so seem like people who just dont pay attention. But if they lean Romney in the end, which id like to think will be the case, we should win without much of a nail-bitter.

I dont like how some polls are still close, even ones using just a D+2 sample. In my mind, its hard to get around how it can even be close at this point, but it is what it is I suppose.

Exactly my feelings. I was sure that Mitt was another weak-kneed Republican guy would be another McCain. I was wrong. I was very wrong and I apologize to Mr. Romney for not supporting him in the primaries.

The day he picked Paul Ryan, I knew the man was dead serious about fixing this country. I have been so impressed with everything he has done these last 6 months or so. What a fine fine man.

Whatever happens (and God willing we will have victory) I am confident that everything that COULD be done, HAS been done.

He's left it all on the field. So very impressive.

89 I'm uncomfortable with the emotionalism in the ad. I recognize that in myself. I distrust the pull of emotions. It feels like triumphalism or something.

I don't think I'm the only one like that. I think it's a conservative thing. I want my resolution to be fueled by reason. Right?

But I want the triumph too. Triumph! Right?

I've been doing phone banking and sometimes people want to talk. They want to tell you what they think even when you're not asking. I had one old lady rant at me against Obama and then start bawling in big sobbing gasps and it just about broke me. Mostly I hear a lot of determination. A lot of anger toward Obama. Broken glass voters aren't triumphalists. They aren't excited about riding the tide of victory. They're determined, no matter the outcome, to cast their vote.

And I think... I think they NEED the goosebumps and the vision of victory.

The video is AWESOME.

Let 'em compare. Obama was supposed to be the cool, smart, competent one, and Bush the drooling idiot. Remember?
The correct response is, "So you're saying that Obama's level of competence is the same as a drooling idiot, right? I agree."
Hopefully, someday in the very near future, science will find a cuure for liberalism.

Exactly. I'm not poor, although the Aid to Dependant Children certainly helps a lot, but under O it's only a matter of time. Romney/Ryan have made it *very* clear that their job is to get government out of the way of normal law-abiding people trying to provide for themselves and their families. This very much frees up both private charity money and government assistance for those who *truly* need it. You're also right that under Ocare the disabled, and elderly, are first to the knackers which is a sick perversion of American ideals.

There is no reasonable explanation for machines switching someones vote, unless (a) its intentional or (b) the machines are built by morons.

There is no way that a voting machine can not be built that would prevent automatic vote switching from happening. They can be built with a 100 percent accuracy rate. That is a fact. So forgive me for being extremely troubled that the powers that be, even allow the current machines to be used in the first place.

Landslide Watch: Romney Camp Political Director Predicts 300+ Electoral Win for Mitt Romney (Video)

Posted by Jim Hoft on Sunday, November 4, 2012, 11:00 AM

Romney Campaign Director Sees Michigan, Pennsylvania and Minnesota as Romney States!

Romney Campaign Political Director Rich Beeson made a stunning prediction today on FOX News Sunday. Beeson told Chris Wallace,

“There’s going to be a widespread repudiation of the Obama Administration. And Governor Romney and Congressman Ryan will be elected the next president and vice president of the United States. And I don’t think we’ll have to wait very long to get it… I’m saying that Pennsylvania and Minnesota and Michigan are not past the 270 as Mr. Axelrod would like to purport. Those are past the 300. This is going to be a big election. And Governor Romney is going to win.”

The Romney internal polling must be off the charts!

121 Katrina versus Sandy.
In Katrina, Bush begged Governor Blanco to declare a disaster area 24 HOURS before Katrina hit to mobilize the Guard and Federalize the operation.
By the end of the first day, Navy and Coast Guard choppers were rescuing people stranded by the storm surge (Katrina).
Over 1500 people were killed in Katrina.
Although there was incredible amounts of storm surge damage in Mississippi, the networks focused on New Orleans, and the story should have been about the incompetence and corruption that was the cause of the levee failures. Levees that were built years before under Democrat political management, with local contractors skimming millions of dollars from Federal money paid to create levee safety.
The National Weather service has been projectiong Sandy for days. It appears in aftermath little was done to evacuate people from vulnerable storm surge areas (like Staten Island), and it appears the pre-positioning of emergency gear and rations was inadequate, to say the least.
President Gutsy Call was right on top of this one. And his lackeys in the Media are there to protect his flanks.

Found this Nov 1 column by former Gov. Doug Wilder that is reproduced here by Reuters. It neither endorses nor rejects Obama although it certainly doesn't praise him. Why can't some black folks show some balls.Voting in an election that matters


By L. Douglas Wilder
November 1, 2012
Every four years, presidential nominees tell voters that this election is the
most important of our lifetimes. Such proclamations are largely hyperbole.


In 2012, however, it might be warranted. This election is consequential.


During the next four years, the nation will have to face issues of debt,
taxes and fiscal stability that will imprint our grandchildren’s futures and
beyond. National and homeland security have received less attention during this
election than in the previous few, but they always are an international or
national incident away from dominating our consciousness in ways we can’t
anticipate.


And issues surrounding inclusion, equality and fairness can’t ever be
forgotten for long. Otherwise our essential character as a country — the very
essence of the American experiment — will be endangered.


The past decade, particularly the past four years or so, have put all of
those matters at a tipping point — to borrow a phrase from writer Malcolm
Gladwell — during the next four years. It matters whether voters choose
Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney or President Barack Obama to address
them.


The classic question, “Are we better off than we were four years ago,” leaves
a mixed answer for many people I meet when traveling around Virginia and the
country. The grand symbol of that fact is the economic growth numbers released
this past week. The projection was for roughly 1.7 percent growth, but the
statistics actually came in at 2 percent.


The Obama campaign trumpets the numbers as better than expected. The Romney
campaign notes they are lower than promised four years ago. Both are right.


I have campaigned for and supported the president in the past, and many
people now want to discuss his job performance with me. They often note that
Obama ran as a moderate — and that is the man they threw their support behind in
2008. But some look back and say that he has governed as a left-of-center
liberal who did not keep the focus squarely on jobs and economic recovery.


Is that group of independent-minded voters enough to swing Virginia’s 13
electoral votes away from Obama on Tuesday? The race is so close, we will have
to wait until November 6 for a definitive answer. But for a state Obama may
need to win, that uncertainty after almost four years on the job cannot be a
great comfort to his campaign operatives.


The Republicans endured a bad nominating process. Yet in the end, they seem
to have chosen a credible candidate that many Virginians tell me they would feel
fairly comfortable with in the Oval Office. Democrats counted on using ad
hominem attacks to make Romney seem too unworthy and too unsteady to be the
country’s chief executive because of the rough nominating process. But that has
not been 100 percent effective.


Will it be effective enough? We’ll find out on Tuesday.


A while ago, I suggested Obama needed a stronger partner on the ticket for
this election. Vice President Joe Biden has been too much of a distraction this
campaign, which was highlighted by his performance during the mid-October VP
debate. That is not to mention other odd statements.


In 2008 both presidential nominees could have used more thorough processes to
arrive at better vice presidential decisions. Future candidates will be advised
to take note. Vice presidents are important advisers, national and international
surrogates and prospective party nominees themselves. Even minor mistakes in
choosing a vice presidential running mate are worth avoiding.


A few weeks ago in my hometown, Richmond, Virginia, women stopped me to
discuss the election. She told me, without hesitation, that she voted for Obama
in 2008. I asked if that meant she would do the same in 2012. She answered by
saying her vote was not to be taken for granted by anyone.


She said she decides whom to vote for during each campaign based on the
issues and a candidate’s record.


I didn’t push her any further. But does her sentiment make the president’s
team comfortable about next Tuesday? It might not — nor should team Romney take
too much comfort in that.


But we’ll have an answer, one way or another, soon. And once it’s over, many
will say …”Thank God!”

148 One interesting side note about Katrina, lots of the displaced wound up in places like Tulsa, Houston, Dallas, Omaha, and so on and so forth. The churches helped them find homes and jobs, even providing job training. I saw an emotional interview with one of the refugees who had a good job for the first time in his adult life. He said he would always miss New Orleans, but, he was never going back because he could not go back to the hopelessness and corruption. He was Black. New Orleans put out a huge call for displaced people to come back to NO for the 2010 Census or to fill out their Census forms as if they still lived they, so that they would not lose a Congressional Seat. They lost the seat.

Nope, you are right. Bush was the closest to losing and he was at 49-47 in the final Gallup. Obama is 3 point behind where Bush was, and Bush had to be saved by a never before seen GOTV push that caught the Dems off guard.

I'm skeptical of positive uplifting imagery. It's usually deployed when a rational look at the facts would make you concerned. I'm thinking post-election when the media wakes up after four years of not doing its job. And the Democrats can actuallybe the opposition party instead of just always acting like it.

Posted by: Reader C.J. Burch writes.... at November 04, 2012 02:05 PM


The difference in jersey was christie. He ordered a lot of the lakes and reservoirs lowered loooong before the storm hit. Long enough that the water being released had time to be absorbed. Towns that should have been under water stayed safe. My own house was 1 hour away from being lost during irene, this time around my sump didn't have a drop, because the lakes on either side of me were lowered by 5 feet. Christie also had power line crews from out of state already lined up and ready to roll. During irene a bunch of stupid mistakes by the idiots controlling the reservoirs had flooded out huge areas of land. Christie changed the way they operate and this time it went real good. I'm not saying he's god, and I think he was a fool for giving obama the photo op and trusting that jerkoff, but christie did a shitload of preparation for this storm, and it shows. Yeah some areas got wiped off the map, but alot more inland that could have been destroyed had skated by because he planned. Obama didn't do a single fucking thing and deserves not a fucking drop of credit.

it is just highly unlikely given he is most likely not going to win Ohio given early voting and polling.

201 Berserker,
I am glad for you and other people in Jersey that Gov. Christie did things in advance. And I really don't care aboutthe "optics" of how Christie appeared with Obama. Obama is still the President, and Christie was doing his job by meeting with him.

But it appears that NYC was totally unprepared for what happened and is still flat-footed with respect to response. Sure, it appears that ConEd is getting the lights back on in Manhatten, but is sounds like Queens, Long Island and Staten Island are a mess and will be for some time.

There was no way the coast could have been "saved", but somebody shouldhave done "the math" and figured the peril that Staten Island was in.

I'm not a New Yorker or from the East Coast, but the whole thing is tragic, and the stupidity behind the tragedy is something that needs to be aired (but it won't).

People just don't realize how devastating hurricanes can be. You can prepare, but if the bitch wants ya bad enough, she is gonna take all your fancy preparations and laugh her ass off while she does it.

201, All of the barrier island folks should have been evacuated days before the storm hit. When you live in as densely populated an area as the tri-state area, the forecasters who gave you a week's notice of this monster were throwing a life line to elected officials who, probably because they don't deal with the stuff the Gulf state guvs do, didn't tell the people soon enough what to do.
I mean, for how many days were we looking at that monster from above?
Obama, FEMA, and even Chrisie and Cuomo and Nanny B. were derelict, IMO. I am not being partisan. It's as if they didn't figure into the calculus the population density factor and were relying on models of cat 1 storms that hit the gulf. Idiots.

ODE TO LITTLE BARACK

Listen, children, to a story



that began in ‘61



‘bout a SCOAMF in Hawaii



and his quest to Be Someone



In the name of social justice



He began his long campaigns



That took most of ten years running



Then the White House was Hussein’s







Go ahead and hate your neighbors



Slander and deny your friends



Go ahead and call them racists



You can justify it in the end



There won’t be any chads left hanging



Come this Judgment Day



On the glorious morning after



One tinpot SCOAMF fades away







So, Barack Obama had it



What he’d waited so long for



And he loved the doting crowds who



gave a narcissist’s reward



He loved golfing, and the parties



And the flights on Air Force One



And the opportunities to



Scold and hector everyone







Now along rode Sir Paul Ryan



He had MATH and budget-fu



Spoke to him in health care summits



Embarrassed the Emperor through and through



Then Mitt Romney came to Denver



Refused to play the Villain’s part



Obama looked down at his lectern



Forgetting his Alinsky’s heart







Now Obama cried with anger



“I’m offended!” “Vote revenge!”



and Mitt easily reduced him



to the size of Spinal Tap’s Stonehenge



And on Tuesday, ‘spite Dem cheating



Electoral map it turned blood red



Romney Ryan having won it



And Obama hangs his head







Go ahead and hate your neighbors



Slander and deny your friends



Go ahead and call them racists



You can justify it in the end



There won’t be any chads left hanging



Come this Judgment Day



On the glorious morning after



One tinpot SCOAMF fades away

226 Mama AJ, exactly. People stepped up and helped. I helped at the Red Cross shelter for Katrina and Rita evacuees that was set up in ENRON's President's old church. That church went and bought property, set up a non-FEMA trailer park, got families into that, and found those people work.

It's hard to gauge the turn out numbers for battleground states versus those that are blue states.

I live in a blue state, CA. No Obama supporter here is worried that he'll lose the state, so many won't show up. We don't even see ads except for those in newly redistricted House districts, as mine is. The only ads for the Presidency I've seen are on national cable networks, like Fox, CNN, ESPN.
However, I am wondering that if one lives in a highly contested state, an OH and Iowa, and now WI or VA, I'd think the constant bombardment of ads are daily reminders that the race is close and that your vote really does count, whether you are strong Romney, strong Obama, leaning Romney, or leaning Obama. This is what scares me, that the battleground states will have much higher turnout than we can predict.
However, I have to rely on the expertise of guys like Barone, Rove, to keep my spirits up as I am a natural pessimist. It's hard-wired, traits for optimism or pessimism.

I hate to sound like a stone cold bitch here, but people have to take responsibility for their actions. That storm looked like it took up half the freaking Atlantic ocean. You get PLENTY of warning with hurricanes. If you choose not to leave, that's on you.

My family doesn't evacuate, ever. But neither do they then sit and bitch because help doesn't come within a week.

I don't know if there's still a lot of water on the ground, but they can't do a lot til that recedes. If the poles were all snapped, they take a good while to replace. I have no doubt there is plenty of inconmpetence to blame, but some of this stuff is sheer logistical hell, too.

We always assume we'll be without power for two weeks, minimum, if anything goes wrong here.

We always have a months' worth of food , water, etc, on hand, but we also know if we take a direct hit from a flood or a tornado, that food and water will be gone, too. Sometimes shit happens.

The NJ barrier islands were under an evacuation order as of Saturday October 27, 5 pm. Delaware's governor issued a state of emergency that same day, and closed the highways the next day. The original storm track had it coming right up DE bay, but then it changed and came in from the sea, making a hard left at Atlantic City/thereabouts.
PA's highways even closed on Monday.
Preparations were made. Barrier island residents were ordered to leave, but you can't pull people out of their houses.

What I am kind of asking pollsters is this: in 2008, we had ahuge turnout for mostly historical reasons, IMO. Yes, the economic pic was bleak and yes, McCain was weak, but many young people and certainly many Reagan Dems, and even some GOPers voted Barry for history's sake and before they knew what an asshole he was and how unprepared he was since the MSM never vetted him. Okay, so they voted with their hearts, wanted to be part of history-making, didn't vote in huge numbers because they thought the race was close.

Now, will many in the battleground states, those who in other years might be quite lazy about voting, be more apt to vote because the race is so close? When people feel their vote really matters, don't they turn out in much higher numbers than in usual elections? And, aren't OHions always proud of their "NoRepublican since blah, blah, blah has won the Oval w/out Ohio?"
Same with VA and Fla. Won't their "battleground" status drive them to the polls? It's the egocentric nature of people to like being the center of attentino and having power.

No, you can't pull people out of their houses, but you CAN order evacuations of areas so that you can stock water and food and other resources for after the storm hits. Why were none of those things brought in by FEMA before hand?
Surely they could have stocked up stuff on areas they knew would stay dry so that they didn't have to be transported long distances after the storm.

Posted by Jim Hoft on Sunday, November 4, 2012, 11:00 AM

Romney Campaign Director Sees Michigan, Pennsylvania and Minnesota as Romney States!

Romney Campaign Political Director Rich Beeson made a stunning prediction today on FOX News Sunday. Beeson told Chris Wallace,

“There’s going to be a widespread repudiation of the Obama Administration. And Governor Romney and Congressman Ryan will be elected the next president and vice president of the United States. And I don’t think we’ll have to wait very long to get it… I’m saying that Pennsylvania and Minnesota and Michigan are not past the 270 as Mr. Axelrod would like to purport. Those are past the 300. This is going to be a big election. And Governor Romney is going to win.”

The Romney internal polling must be off the charts!

I have seen little evidence that any barrier island residents stayed behind, except one interview where I saw a YouTube video of a teen age girl say "Never again". I've watched probably an hour of helicop flyover images and all I see is emergency personnel and road crews trying to get the sand dunes off the streets. No cars in the driveways, anywhere.

As far as the barrier islands of NJ I can attest by living either on them or a short drive from them that they are predominately owned by rather well-to-do people as a second home.

Given the size of Hurricane Sandy, the closest state without precipitation was Indiana. The main reason the PA, NJ and DE highways were closed is so emergency personnel and vehicles would have unrestricted access to deliver aid.
I don't know how the bureaucracy works, when exactly FEMA steps in after a governor declares state of emergency. I only know what the officials in my tri-state area did to prepare, none of them dropped the ball. I can't say the same for Nanny Bloomberg, who denied both FEMA assistance and National Guard presence in the boroughs.

299 "hel, Kirstie Alley has already sent one truck of supplies from L.A. and another is on its way."

Who was it who mocked Romney for sending in a busload of supplies, instead of donating money? Looks like he was right, again.

Speaking of right again, I supported Perry in the primaries, until he cratered in the debates. I thought Mitt would be a wimp, a pushover for the Obama machine. I still think Rick Perry would be a good president, but it's clear now that the party nominated a strong candidate. And, I must add, a candidate who benefitted from having gone through a hard-fought nominating process.

He's got delusions between his ears

Man it takes up too much space

And all that tension between his gears man

He'll never ever leave this place

He's got stones instead of bones

And everybody knows

That can make you real real slow

And if heaven was below

He'd know just where to go

Dive in the ocean

And he'd sink like a stone

And he'd say

It's time to swim ashore

If I drift long enough

I'll be home



Hold on if you can

You're gonna sink faster

Than you can imagine so hold

Hold on if you can

I watched the panel discussion with Hume, Trippi, Rove, some Dem guy from the NYTimes, and Wallace.
The question put to them was "What will the reason be if Romney loses? If Obama loses?" Damn, talk about putting the cart before the horse.
I watched it hoping to see Karl and his whiteboard as I did on Hannity on Friday evening, but they didn't go there.
Did I miss something else. I read upstream someone say that Hume said things were trending O, but Hume isn't a poll reader and he surely doesn't study the internals (gawd, I hope Rove hadn't given him any bad news, but I doubt it.)

pole was pulled away slightly from a house, so they stopped to investigate to see
if the house had power, and found a live wire on the ground. They patched it up and away they went. Nobody in the neighborhood even noticed the wire, but these guys stopped on a hunch and bingo.

Nope, you have it wrong. If you want to buy a home on the waterfront with your own money you are fine. Go ahead, if it gets destroyed, you lose all your money. If you have to mortgage it, then you HAVE TO PURCHASE flood insurance. I have looked into the cost and it is the equivalent of purchasing the home ALL OVER AGAIN over a 10 year period.

So people make decisions, weigh the odds, pay their money, or not... But it doesn't cost Joe Taxpayer a cent as long as the premiums the government collect equal the amount they have to pay out.

That pisses me off. If you live out here you know that the unions here are dem controlled mob run scum, and it wouldn't surprise me one bit if it was true.

388 The Redskins Rule is a trend involving NFL football and United States presidential elections. Briefly stated, there is a high correlation between the outcome of the last Washington Redskins home football game prior to the U.S. Presidential Election and the outcome of the election: when the Redskins win, the party which won the popular vote in the previous election wins the electoral vote for the White House; when the Redskins lose, the non-incumbent party wins. This coincidence has been noted by many sports and political commentators and has held true since 1940.[1][2]

Not to worry. Bloomberg is distributing paper ballots, no doubt helpfully pre-printed with an X next to Obama's name.

Speaking of, the biggest reason I'm expecting this to be a Romney blowout is that the O-bots are already flogging the "Republicans STOLE THE ELECTION!" crap, before the election even happens.

Normally there's a short interval of silence while they look for "forgotten" ballots in LBJ's pickup, or Daley's garage, or Al Franken's dressing room, or Obama's closet.

400 376--It's not insane at all if it's Bachmann's district. They are hoping to pick her off with Clinton, not using Bubba because they fear losing the state, as I'd hoped.

401 Most would agree, however, that is the most likely place he will go wrong--given the tightness of the polls and a respected poll like Gallup giving Romney a lead.

Today Silver tweeted his model has Obama winning the EV 30 percent of the time, even if Romney wins the popular vote, provided Romney wins by 1 point or less.

That's a pretty significant chance.

Nevertheless, that also means if Romney does win the popular vote, then Romney wins 70 percent of the time.

So let's assume if Obama wins the popular vote, he wins the EC 100 percent of the time. Then we can use algebra to calculate Silver's probability (P) estimate Obama is going to win the popular vote.

(P x 0) + (1 - P) (0.7) = 0.15

0.15 is Silver's probability that Romney wins.

P x 0 = Romney's chance of winning with a popular vote loss. It equals 0, of course.

(1-P) (0.7) = Romney's chance of winning with a popular vote win.

Solving for P:

0.7 - P = 0.15

P = 0.55

Therefore, Silver's estimate that Obama will win the popular vote is only 55 percent.

That does not sound nearly as certain as most people assume, based on the electoral vote probability.

After Katrina, on the Gulf of Mississippi, it was the church groups and volunteers from all over the country who made a lasting and immediate impact on those citizens. It was not FEMA. It was the National Guard and others making it there and road crews clearing downed trees on major highways leading to the Coast. There were hurricane strength winds 120 miles inland, huge trees down on highways. But you did not hear about all that from Geraldo. Churches got organized quickly and acted.
So...good for Staten Island. Please send a message to your friend from this Mississippi girl by way of Florida. Tell her to hang tough, it will get better, and that people are praying for them and donating. This is America, and it is what we do---we don't need a preznit in a windbreaker showing us the way. We are, however, showing him the exit door on Tuesday.

I don't know--they are going to waste Bill Clinton's "talent" on a House Seat?

the population of St. Cloud is a little over 66,000 iirc.

They are not going to get many voters there for Obama when they voted 52-45 for McCain--plus the sparse populations just caps the possibilities of much if any pick up for Obama.

the barrier islands without a mortgage you CAN still also buy Federal
flood insurance. But you get a choice, pay the money betting that a
hurricane is going to come, or look at the odds (as in NJ which hasn't
really taken a monumental hit since around 1938 or 1962) and save the
money? The odds favor saving the money. Especially if the premium is equal to buying the home all over again in the next 10 years (which was my estimate of the cost).

There's no need to 'bail'
anyone (as in individual homeowner) out. They made their choices, now
they have to live with the consequences. Such is life.

That War on Womyn is projection....

btw--I was looking at the internals of that PA Susquehanna poll--

and exactly 17 out of 800 people said that "abortion" was their priority this elections cycle.

It was quite revealing when the Dem operative at the

Face the Nation round table this morning said that Romney would not win PA because of the independent female vote in the burbs of Philly--and she actually whipped out the "War on Womyn" talking point.

Well good luck with that--because only 17 out of 800 called that a priority.

If that's what they are hanging their hope on to counter the results of that PA poll--then obviously they didn't get a good look at the internals.

503 >>>Why would Pew sample D+1 last week and then D+3 now?

They can't really choose the party identification of all the people who answer a given survey.

One of the reasons to ask about party ID is because it isn't fixed: people's answers change as how they feel about the candidates change.

So it could be random noise, it could be a small change in people preferring identifying themselves as Democrats, or it could even be intentional weighting of their poll internals to benefit Dems, but there's no reason to assume there is.

D+3 is hardly implausible.

Posted by: Samwise Gamgee the 3rd at November 04, 2012 03:47 PM (SKX2R)

504 They revised the Redskins Rule:

In 2004, the Redskins lost their last home game before the presidential election, indicating the incumbent should have lost; however, George W. Bush (the incumbent) went on to defeat John Kerry. Steve Hirdt, credited with the discovery of the rule, then modified it to refer not to the incumbent party in the White House but to the party that last won the popular vote. In the election in 2000, Al Gore won the popular vote, and thereby the revised Redskin Rule has been upheld.[2]

On November 3, 2008, the Redskins lost to the Pittsburgh Steelers, thereby predicting a win for Illinois Senator Barack Obama over Arizona Senator John McCain (as George W. Bush won the popular vote in 2004).[1]

In reality, it's a close election. We'll see what happens. It will come down to turnout.

At this point, I don't really know. That seem a little high to me, but I've gone from predicting solidish Romney win a little over a week ago, to narrow Romney win, to narrow Obama win.

A 2 point PV victory could come under that heading.

I think it'll be tighter than 2% though. Could go either way, but in a tight race, advantage Obama.

But you could be right about Pew's polling. My guess is nearly tied PV, Obama advantage EV.

You are a stupid troll and a very annoying concerny one at that. You only show up after the second debate to whine and cry about how Romney is doing so badly and Obama is going to win.
You only show up when there is "bad" news for Romney and then say anyone who disagrees with your pathetic attempts at trolling threads is a member of the "sunshine brigade."
Yep. Look at the poll that Pew put out. It includes 54% Democrats when leaners are included. Gallup found 49% Republican to 46% Democrat in their own polling. Pew is too Democratic and us in the "sunshine brigade" are right to refuse it. So again, "Samwise," go shove your head up your ass.

587 @SamwiseGangee:

The Pew Poll had D+4, not D+3.

I think they also had 86% of registered voters as likely voters. That's too high and accounts for the D+4.

@Everyone:

Still, I'm disturbed by O's Sandy bounce. The problem isn't that he looked good helping so much, as that he got off the negativity kick he was on w/ "Romnesia" etc.

It also made global warming an issue.

Sandy changed the dynamic of the election. Still, I think the bounce is fading and will continue to fade.

I'm also in Philly and I can tell you we don't care about Christie as much as people think. And I don't think Sandy will help O as much as many do. If he wins PA he was going to win it anyway (IMO).

I wish I'd seen your last post before posting my follow-up.

I take you at your word. I appreciate your clarification, and redact my impugning of your honor: on the contrary, you've confirmed your honor.

So thanks.

In fact, I was heavily invested in AJ Strata's 2006 optimistic analysis, which proved way off.

In 2008, I stopped calling other people "Eeyores", and was constantly called one myself. Nonetheless, I was still overly optimistic (they were just as out to lunch as I was in 2006).

In 2010, I predicted an outcome somewhere between Morris's 100-seat pickup and the 60 the GOP actually got. Again, called an Eeyore. Again, was overly optimistic in fact, with everyone else more out to lunch than I was.

I've made these exact points in several comments here.

So nope, not my first election.

612 Attended the Romney rally at the IX center in cleveland, don't know any official numbers, but based on the stand seating around the stage, there were 2,000 people seated there, and probably another couple of thousand standing.

plus, in the car park, there were about 18-20 rows with 110 cars each, plus some parking on the side, so about 2,000 cars, assuming 2.5 people per car, about 5,000. It'll be interesting to see what gets reported. Liberal assholes at Cleveland.com haven't mentioned the event, instead giving 2 stories on Biden seeing 1,200 people in a Lakewood highschool nearby.

Overall, it was a very positive event

[[ SPOILER ALERT about the "vagina video" -- watch it first before reading this ]]

>>> Holy shit. Everyone go immediately to Insty and watch he "Vagina 2012" video. The lack of self awareness is off all scales.

It's actually a funny video. Especially when she admits she has no logical argument for gays.

I intend to follow her advice re: keeping vaginas in my thoughts.

But not on whom to support politically.

Do you not have enough people pissed at you without jumping into a fray that is not of your own making?

Sandy is a big, fat nothing burger of the campaign. First, Sandy did not provide Obama with any leadership opportunity, only optics. The optics are not enough to overcome the major issues Obama has....mainly the economy.

Romney still leads significantly on every poll on who is best equipped to handle the economy. And the economy still remains the number 1 issue of this election.

Second,Sandy has not reversed the one criteria that is always important to an incumbent, right direction/wrong direction. It is still wrong direction, usually by +19 or +20.

As long as the economy is the number 1 issues, and as long as Romney continues to dominate that issue, then the momentum is Romney's.


Believing that Sandy has fundamentally altered the dynamics of the election is wish casting.

As I've said, I strongly support Romney and despise Obama. So I'm entirely OK with being wrong on this.

Besides, this isn't an exact science here. It could go either way -- referring especially to the election.

incumbent victory was 7.4% and it was Ronald Reagan=Romney win.

500 Admirals, Generals to Endorse Romney

Nearly 500 former military admirals and generals are poised to endorse Mitt Romney, the Washington Free Beacon has learned.

The group will post a full page ad in the Washington Times on Monday. The advertisement will have the headline, “We, the undersigned, proudly support Governor Mitt Romney as our nation’s next President and Commander-in-Chief,” followed by the names of the former military commanders.

A spokesman for the group emphasized its independence from the official campaign. The Romney campaign has not sanctioned this ad buy, a spokesman said, and the members of the group are paying the fee themselves.

the info that I was voting for Romney!! with unprecedented voter-y
enthusiasm.

I suspect they would have found my body with Tom's botas prints all over my smashed face, strangled with one of those stupid saggy hats.

The line to actually vote wasn't too bad, the line for registering to vote was out the door and around the block. I hope a lot of them got, like, bored with standing in the cold, and gave up and went to eat quinoa somewhere.

GOTV operations are going on across the country, with particular emphasis in the crucial swing states.

Anyone who wants to help can do so simply by making calls from home through Mitt Romney’s website. True the Vote also has a helpful list of states which are still in need of or accepting poll watchers.

This is important not just for the Presidential election, but also in some of our Operation Counterweight races in which the candidates are separated by just a few points. Every single vote matters.

Yes, I agree, except that I supported Newt Gingrich then.

My own complaint about Romney, in line with what Kristol was saying the other day (but not because he said it; I've been saying it for weeks), is that Romney should have forced Benghazi onto the front page more.

He tried in the second debate, got slammed down by an unfair moderator who literally lied about reality, and didn't make a big deal of it again, because he's just not as personally confident in foreign affairs as on economics.

Which is understandable. Also unfortunate.

But he's still the right man at the right time.

And yet they lost by 8 points... just like The Immigrant Obama will on Tuesday...

So

The New black Panthers beat

Alternative explanation for what? No one convincingly understands what the double split experiment MEANS. Just what the data is, and that it can be reproduced over and over again.

You can even move the observer to the other side of the slit nearer the screen and it still holds true.

Possibly interaction with photons provides an explanation, but I doubt it's that simple. It's more fundamental.

I may have some ideas about it, but this is hardly a solved problem in physics -- at least the explanation for the data.

I think far-right-wingers who postulate that the polls are always against them, and every uncertainty in such data always resolves to their benefit, and is usually the result of some type of conspiracy...

... and even that a guy who agrees with Bill Kristol and Charles fucking Krauthammer, almost always, and who posts damning questions about the President's failings in Libya and a whole host of other places ...

... and who points out the election is going to be close, and therefore turnout is essential ...

... and who was predicting a Romney win until a little over a day ago when Rasmussen's tracking poll provided evidence for his eminently-reasonable hypothesis that the Sandy rallying effect could have swung last-minute momentum among low-info last-minute dedciding voters back to Obama ...

... is necessarily a paid Axelrod shill (when I obviously know whether I am or not and what I feel or think or not)

... are "wingnuts".

Unimaginably stupid wingnuts.

Did you listen to the entire transcript? He did not completely praise Christie and Barbour, being Gov. during Katrina, quoted his ex football coach "Praise the person when you are with them, tell the truth behind their backs."

I can sorta understand camping over at, say, an Ohio newspaper's comment section where he might -- theoretically -- swing one or two votes.

Lord knows why someone would waste the effort on a marginally conservative blog where everyone has or will vote for Romney. It's like us going over to troll Huffpo. No possible hope of any productive outcome.

But, I guess it is cheaper than paying a German prostitute to verbally abuse you. Which is most likely the sexual kink ultimately underlying all this effort.

The key point to remember is it's an experiment, not a theory nor a model. It's a surprising result, and most physicists don't claim to understand what the data means.

It is in no way, shape, nor form like the AGW hypothesis.

The fact that you can even equate the two is shocking.

Well, you know, with all due respect, Popcorn, the fact that you think that's even marginally relevant, and gives some credence to some asshat on the Internets downplaying the most famous experiment in quantum physics, yet not even saying his problems with it, does not give me great confidence in your logical thinking skills.

For the record: AGW hypothesis = probably wrong in the main, and in any case the temperature feedback effects seem to be mainly negative (dampening), not positive as the runaway manmade warming scenarios demand. The computer models are garbage.

I think Svensmark's hypothesis is closer to the mark, and of course it isn't widely accepted yet, but it's a serious scientific effort being investigated at CERN and elsewhere.

As for the double slit experiment - the most famous experiment in quantum physics (which you might have heard of) - it shows what it shows. The meaning is a mystery, although there are some ideas.

And no, it is not the sum total of my knowledge and thoughts on the double slit experiment.

But yeah, last night was taking a break from commenting here and watched that. Because it's the kind of thing I do.

If you watch it, it'll give you a pretty good understanding of what the double slit experiment is, for you or anyone who isn't that familiar with it.

I realize you might well be. It's covered in school, of course.

851 Should I say this?

I'm gonna say it.

This video makes me understand something of how the Obama crowd must have felt going into the 08 election.

It's an incredibly dangerous feeling. After all, in the primary run-up, I was saying that Romney is the Democratic nominee for the Republican candidacy.

I'm going to have to work hard to keep in mind that Romney is not my friend, nor a friend of liberty.

I'm going to have to remember to boo nearly everything he does, other than his efforts to begin to dismantle a trend that's been building since Wilson, at least.

And I don't think he's going to do much of that.

I'm very, very hopeful, and it is that hope that terrifies me.
