Why Obama Will Win....Part Deux

No votes yet

(with no intention of boring myself with this video)

Am I correct that you see yourself as Libertarian, think that voting 3rd party is in any way effective given our current political system, and are bitter that Ron Paul lost, so are happy that Obama may win again? I'm seriously asking, because you never really spell it out.

As to voting 3rd party - yeah, I tried that from 1996 right through to 2008. Here's what you get from that - a self-congratulatory feeling that you did the right thing, because the 2-party candidates are both either unappealing or unacceptable ( pick one). And many of the 3rd party candidates have great ideas and often have lived clean lives.

Basically it's a fool's errand, dating way back to Theodore Roosevelt. Likeable guy - but arrogant and sure he was right about everything - and saddled us with Woodrow Wilson. And p.s. - his 1912 campaign was almost entirely financed by the House of Morgan.

Voting 3rd party is for

1) the politically deluded.
2) The hopelessly idealistic

And this year it is, in effect, a vote for Obama, and don't think Obama doesn't know it.

To answer your question, I would not be happy to see Obama win again.

Any statement I make is the opinion of me exercising my first amendment right to freedom of speech. Freedom of speech in the United States is protected by the First Amendment to the United States Constitution and is generally permitted.


Obama will win because there are more good people in this country than racist such as yourself. :)

Normally you post something really stupid without being asked what you mean but I'm curious if you could explain something to me and the others who read SB. What is racist about posting a video which shows an Obama supporter explaining why she will once again vote for Obama? Is it racist because she's black? I had nothing to do with that? Is it racist because she appears to be stupid? Again I had nothing to do with that. Is it racist because it exposes the truth about why some people will vote for Barack Obama?

Where does one start with this?

First of all, did Obama give her a "phone" or a "foe"?

Second, couldn't Obama have given her some teeth too?

Third, I smell a position on Toledo City Council! (Wouldn't it be great if her last name were Brown or Copeland?)

At least this woman got a phone from Obama. His brother living in a hut in Africa has gotten zilch from him.


Now people will confuse this with actual turnout. The numbers reported are absentee ballot requests, NOT returns. But it stands to reason that if Repubs are surpassing the 2008 requests then they are very likely to surpass the 2008 returns. Likewise if Dems are short of 2008 requests then they are unlikely to surpass 2008 returns. Now this is likely/unlikely. It's very possible for the returns to put forth a different metric but this is key when talking about the health of each campaigns GOTV.


It may also be a reflection of the fact Republican demographics are getting older and more reliant on absentee voting than they were 4 years ago.

Was that the case of Dems in 2008 when their absentee requests jumped?


This year it looks the Republican secretary of state in Ohio sent absentee ballot requests to every registered voter in the state. This might account for the increase in as well. As for Democrats being down, I know when I went to get my Obama tickets for the BG rally they were really pushing early voting vs absentee. I always do early voting because I’m usually volunteering on Election Day, but without weekend hours, I’m going to have a hard time making, when I asked about getting voting absentee they really pushed for early voting. Just a personal observation. ..

What's strange is that Romney didn't buy any ads in Ohio this week...


On Wednesday, the Romney campaign reserved $3.4 million worth of advertising time in eight swing states. Nearly half of that — more than $1.5 million — was for Virginia. The rest was spread across Colorado, Florida, Iowa, Nevada, New Hampshire, North Carolina and Wisconsin. His total ad spending for the week is more than $10 million.

Stange after spending $2.5 million in Ohio last week and doing a bus tour, he's not going to follow it up with another ad buy?

It MUST be because of the polls. They've shown him behind and record breaking Democratic participation.

Actually it doesn't say he's not going to do an ad buy in Ohio. It only talks about the money they've reserved thus far and where that is going. In fact, he was in Pennsylvania yesterday too. A place he "pulled out" of.

Again, as a Romney supporter I'm still very confident in this election despite the media trying to portray it as over.

If I listened to the media's notions of how a race is going then Hilary would be the one running for reelection today.


Romney was in Pennsylvania for a fund raiser and not really for campaigning. As a matter of fact with 40 days till the election, he’s spending a lot of time in states raising money in states that have already been decided.


On Thursday, Ryan held back-to-back fundraisers in Knoxville and Memphis, Tenn., two cities in a reliably Republican state.

Tomorrow, Romney is set to hold a fundraiser in Philadelphia. A fundraising invitation published by the Sunlight Foundation says that he and Ryan will then meet up in Chestnut Hill, Mass. for two fundraising events. Two days later, Ryan will host two events in Connecticut -- one in West Hartford and one in Darien.

These come on the heels of a fundraiser that Ryan hosted on Sept. 25 in Houston, Texas and a reception that Romney held Sept. 27 in Washington, D.C.

Tennessee, Pennsylvania, Massachusetts, Connecticut, Texas and Washington DC – aren’t in play or even swing states. It’s not like he’s even going to them for rallies, he’s going to them for fundraisers, but with the time frame so short, it’s time Romney won’t get back.
