AA, you still not put me on ignore ? Sad indictment of your argument when you choose to label someone a troll for having an opinion that opposes your own
No, it has nothing to do with the content of what you post it's the way you post things and say things that shows you are a troll. Even you're smart enough to know that so your response above fits that pattern to a tee...

Elizabeth Emken. She brings it all, and will lose badly,

Feinstein is not debating, and only started phoning in some commercials because Emken shamed her via proxy to show that she was still possessed of a puse.......

But you know that.

In advance of the Elections, the Navy will christen a new ship on Monday; The USS Barack Obama.

The new technology built into the state of the art Landing Craft will assist in fortifying front-line beach assaults with much needed comedy relief.

Everyone says it is going to be a long...long night Tuesday.

I am putting on a Chili and Cornbread feed for some of my liberal friends....those who are Republicans and not members of the County Tea Party group. As there are no Democrats to be found in my immediate area.

In the past month....i have seen exactly one new Obama/Biden bumper sticker....exactly one!

I have seen hundreds of Romney stickers.

There are no....count'em zip zero nada Obama yard signs to be found.

Lots and lots of Romney signs.

Now if one were to travel to Raleigh area....Chapel Hill....the Reseach Triangle and any of the Ethnic neighborhoods....it would be reversed....but we got'em out numbered for sure.

I bet North Carolina goes for Romney early.....and by about 8 points......Virginia about 5 points....Pennsylvania by 3 points.....Ohio by 8 points....Wisconsin by 5 points....and Florida by 8 points. All of which means Romney with over 300 EC Votes.

Any takers on a bet out there?

IF Romney wins on Tuesday (and I hope he does), here is a prediction.

Because saying anything Anti Obama while he is office is seen as
racist and the media Obama compliant, most non Obama supporters
tend to keep on the quiet side.

So if Romney win, their will be
1. A collective sigh of relief
2. then an outpouring of euphoria
3. Obama will be miffed and so will all those who supported him
4. The media will suddenly turn anti Obama and highlight why he lost
and all his failures.
5. Obama supporters will come to the collective realisation that
he failed and has set back the black / minority chances for the future
a long way because he didn't get through his major reforms and is
seen as more talk than action.
6. The rest of the world will be happy (except Europe) !!!


SaSless
I am a betting man as you know (SAMXXV thread !!!) but I am with you on this so a bit hard to take the bet.

Planning Ahead

Well, perhaps the writing is on the wall..

President Obama and his wife just closed on a mansion in Hawaii and plan to move – in January 2013!

Barack and Michelle Obama will be moving to Hawaii in January of 2013. They have just purchase an estate in close proximity to land owned by the University of Hawaii, where the Obama presidential library and “political center” will be located. The estate is valued at $40 million.

'It's good to be the King.'*

Being able to buy a 40 million dollar home after just four years earning $400,000.00 dollars a year. Let's see here, how much did he earn? Hmm, 1.6 million.

Must have got a hell of deal on his mortgage. So at least someone received some benefits from all that stimulus money that Obama handed out to the banks.

Thank you very much, my only excuse is that we were leaving for a party and I was in a hurry, didn't bother to proof read.

The power of a comma, or absence of, is terrifying.

Thank you for understanding.

The self-serving memoir (which will shoot to the top of the NY Times best-seller list) and inflated speaking-engagement fee will pay off that little ol' Hawaiian grass shack in no time.

Republican presidents elect may have significant wealth, but no one can parlay the executive office into personal millions like a Democrat!

More bad news for Barry.

The Redskins have been a professional football team since 1933, when the Boston Braves changed their name to the Boston Redskins. In 1936, the Redskins played their first game during an election year. It's likely no one noticed at the time, but the squad's performance in its last home game before Election Day soon became arguably the best indicator of who would win the presidential race. A Redskins win meant the incumbent party would stay put. A Redskins loss meant the White House would change parties. With only one exception — 2004 — this trend has held in every election cycle.
Result: The New York Times' Nate Silver gives President Obama an 80.9 percent chance of winning on Election Day. He must be looking at the line for the Redskins game on Sunday. The Skins are 3.5-point favorites over the Carolina Panthers. So, forget about the polls, just make sure to check the Redskins score this weekend
Final Score: Carolina Panthers: 21, Washington Redskins: 13
