    Maybe I'm a Romney supporter.

    Didn't think of that one, did you?

    You are always one step ahead of me, 612.
  3. anonymous612 Member

    I try, I try.
  4. Which is why people who really want to cast a protest vote should know their state. If you're in a swing state like Florida or Ohio, it's the height of irresponsibility to vote for a 3rd party candidate. You know they won't win, so you're denying a vote to the one who disgusts you less, thereby making his opponent more likely to win your state. If, on the other hand, you live in a deep red (AL, MS, the other boring Southern states) or deep blue (throw a dart at New England), feel free. There aren't enough of you to have a meaningful effect on the election, so give your preferred candidate some extra pressure from the right (glibertarians) or left (socialists and Greens) by tossing Boring, er, Johnson, Stewart/Mendoza, or Stein/Honkala a bone.

    I know that is Bullshit.

    I feel sorry for the poor soul who bashes the Democratic party in your presents (speaking from exp)... Might be a barrel full of LULZ if I introduce you to my potential father in law. He's kind of like a cat in a carrier when it comes to the 'Nets.

    Well, I have to stand corrected: McCaskill is running neg ads against Akin:

    However, the dumbass isn't running too many ads and "thinks" the GOP will come back to him. Never mind the fact that the GOP lord and savior Karl Rove said ("jokingly") he'd kill Akin.

    As for Romney/Ryan? Romney is struggling to convince people he's a better choice for both the swing voters (there really isn't as many as people think) and his party. The problem is: Most people see Romney as "the 1%" and this video:

    blasted a hole in the side of his ship. The thing is: Romney only got nominated by default. Santorum left and so did Gingrich. Ron Paul? LOL, please. The others (ie: Michelle Bachmann) were more or less fillers and LOL fluff.
  6. Maybe I should correct what I said. Romney isn't the worst candidate overall that I've ever seen, but he's certainly the worst presidential candidate I have ever seen. I think only Aaron Burr was worse, and that by a nose.

    Protesting by not voting is the dumbest thing I have ever heard. It does exactly what is on the ballet. Nothing.

    I don't think Romney's campaign is the worse in my opinion.

    That title went to McCain post-Palin. Nothing makes for months of side-splitting LOL campaigning than having a retarded, inexperienced, dysfunctional family with a preggo teen daughter, attention whore for a VP who's only accomplishment is seeing Russia from her back door in the middle of Ass Fucking Nowhere, Alaska. Not to mention her inability to read, but gets butthurt maximus if you ask her what newspaper she reads...

    Romney just can't connect with people. His idea of "employing American workers" is getting a new butler from the US or sending jobs to Central or South America.

    Oh, it does something alright:

    It makes others willing to do it speak and think for you.

    Not to mention makes you look lazy and thoughtless.
  9. anonymous612 Member

    You guys are all idiots.

    The worst campaign was clearly Bachmann.
  10. Anonymous Member

    When I think about Michelle Bachmann I touch myself.

    No debate there that her's was horrid.

    Of course I never paid attention to her campaign, so...

    Deadline Nears on Pa. Voter ID Law Ruling

    Published on Oct 1, 2012 by AssociatedPress

    A court-imposed deadline neared Monday for a judge to decide whether Pennsylvania's tough new law requiring voters to show photo identification can remain intact.
  13. I have to disagree. Even Palin at her worst never uttered anything as dumb as the 47% comment. Also, unlike Romney, McCain was a legitimate, credible candidate who had some underlying principles. Romney's only principle is advancing Romney, and he's not even good at that.
  14. Okay, rephrase: The worst general election campaign since Aaron Burr is what we're watching now. I've truly never seen anything like it, and not in a good way. The worst primary campaign to win a noticeable number of voters has to be Lyndon LaRouche. For those who don't know, he used to be like Ron Paul for Democrats with a smidgen of Lafayette Ronald Hubbard thrown in for extra crazy, except he never got the attention he didn't deserve.

  16. I read this on Balloon-Juice yesterday, and it made me think. If you're in a swing state and plan to vote for a third party candidate, read this.

    I don't know if the 47% comment even comes close to the "legitimate rape" comment, much less touches it. Considering I live in the state this numb nuts dumb fuck dip shit is running in, I've heard some hair whitening, triple facepalm inducing retardanese from this fuck hole.

    Now Romney's comment only shows that he:

    1) Cannot relate to the common man (read: The 99% OWS talks about)

    2) Cares only about rich faggots (read: The 1% OWS talks about)

    3) Only those who are die hard Conservatives (read: Retards) will vote for him. Then again, if Adolf Hitler was alive and ran for GOP, he'd get the nomination.

    There isn't a doubt that Romney is not the optimal candidate nor ideal for running for the highest office in the US. The only reason I can think of that he's in a dead heat with Obama is because of the economy hasn't improved fast enough for the GOPfags.

    As for McCain? People were furious with the GOP no thanks to all the rage over Bush Jr. McCain had no chance. If people used their heads and not react or use emotions to guide their decisions, maybe he would have had a better chance.

    Palin only made that 0 chance go into the negative column. While it was obvious what he was doing (trying to get all the voters who were butthurt that Hillary Clinton didn't get the Demo. nomination), it backfired heavily by picking an inexperienced retard from the middle of nowhere. His whole theme of trying to get people to vote for him because of his experience became compromised and hypocritical by selecting an inexperienced running mate.

    BTW: Where the hell is Adhoc? I'd love to hear what he has to say in all of this.

    I beg you: Please don't do that faggotry this election! Once was enough for a whole several million millenniums! We don't need hanging chads or anything causing the election retard circus lasting past November 6! I already got an epic troll ready for my GOP friends on Facebook! I'd hate to waste it!
  20. If you're an Obama supporter and you have election anxiety, visit, Election.Princeton.Edu, and . I never read anything at RCP, because at least half of it is crap, but their electoral map is excellent. Silver (538) and Prof. Wang (Princeton) provide excellent analysis. Professor Wang predicts at least 310 EVs for President Obama with a 95% confidence, with 290 of those votes in his "safe" category. His overall prediction is Obama 347, Rmoney 191. Nate Silver's numbers and methodology are different, but expects a comfortable win for Obama. RCP has it 269-181 Obama with 88 tossups, which is frankly bizarre because one of their "tossups", Nevada (6 EV), is Obama +5.2%, and Virginia (13 EV), where the margin is 3.5% but Romney hasn't had a lead of any type (0.8% was the last) since September 12 when the effects of the RNC were still being felt in the polls, which run a few days behind. At 269 EVs, even one more electoral vote will produce a winner. Iowa's (6 EV) and Colorado's (9 EV) numbers are similar to Virginia's, except Romney has never led there in this election cycle. Missouri (10 EV) will probably go to Romney, leaving North Carolina and Florida as the true toss-ups. Ohio (18) and Pennsylvania (20) are out of Romney's reach, and I get the sense his 47% comments have been another cancer on his campaign.

    Tl;dr: If you would rather have Obama in office four more years, be happy, because the numbers say it's very probably going to happen. If you're a Republican, look to 2016, because barring a major misstep or catastrophe, Romney is going to get destroyed utterly. If you're an activist for either party, focus on the down-ticket races, because that's where your time and money will be best spent. This presidential race is over.

  21. True. I should restrict my comments to saying the 47% comments are among the dumbest I've ever heard from a major party candidate for POTUS. Akin is just a never-ending lulzcow at this point. I find him morally repugnant, offensive, yet funny as hell. That said, he's only funny because he clearly doesn't realize how dumb he is. The best thing McCaskill can do is air Akin's comments. He's said more than enough dumb and offensive things to help her campaign. Much like Obama with Romney, all she has to do is let Akin be her argument. I hope the people of your state "legitimately rape" him in the polls.
  22. Paroxetine Samurai Moderator

    Ask and ye shall receive (in my state anyways):

    As if he couldn't get anymore retarded: He voted against the National Sex Offender Registry....

    I guess this is an appropriate pic:


    What makes this a literal Lulzapalooza is how he still thinks he has a chance of beating McCaskill. He's gone to Washington in order to suck cock get GOP support back... Going to be a dick sucking orgy an uphill battle that won't end well.

    The fuck do you mean, "once"? We're three for three so far. We've fucked every election since Clinton. There has literally been some big "OH GOD WHAT DID FLORIDA DO NOW" issue three elections in a row.

    I think we just like the attention.
  24. Paroxetine Samurai Moderator

    Oh really? I was thinking of the big Gore/Bush fiasco in particular. If there was others, I guess it didn't get much attention in my neck of the woods or I didn't pay attention to the other fuck ups.

    Either way: PLEASE don't fuck this one up. This over glorified woman's mud wrestling match is starting to get old and don't think many have it in them to survive extended "Who's got the presidency?" past November 6th. Tell all Floridians that every time they fuck up an election, God kills a whino. For the love of GOD, won't you all think of the whinos?!

    It's not our fault, the state head of elections is an openly corrupt incompetent dumbass.

    Not to be confused with the governor, who is also an openly corrupt incompetent dumbass.

  26. Paroxetine Samurai Moderator

    TBH: My eye is on Florida in this election because I got a tinge of fear that we may see the Bush/Gore fiasco this time being Obama/Romney...

    ...although I am not that afraid. From what available data there is: Obama is ahead in Ohio which might cinch the deal. Then again, it is possible that Ohio is doing an epic troll and Obama may not get it.
  27. anonymous612 Member

    Don't be worried about that. Be worried about the voter purges. That's where it'll probably come from this time. That's okay, though (well, for locals at least), Rick Scott is up for reelection in two years, and there isn't anyone on the planet who still thinks that man isn't a lizard-alien.
  28. Paroxetine Samurai Moderator

    Yeah considering states like Texas and Pennsylvania are considering Voter ID laws, it might make it impossible for certain groups to vote. More specifically: Poor people.
  29. anonymous612 Member

    I believe Penn.'s was overturned yesterday.
  30. Paroxetine Samurai Moderator

    I think the law got an injunction blocking most of it and overturned in other parts, thereby making the whole law unenforceable this election. Dox. Dox 2. This means it could head to the Supreme Court after the election. (provided they want to hear it)

    Haven't heard any more about Texas doing it.

  32. I almost fell off my chair when I read this latest gem from Akin. Question: How can a doctor perform an abortion, or for that matter, a "fake abortion", on a woman who is not pregnant?

    My response:
  33. anonymous612 Member

    Here, let me summarize for you:

    "We're a nation that believes we're all children of the same god."
    -- Mitt Romney
    • Funny Funny x 1
  34. Repeat after me: FiveThirtyEight, Election.Princeton.Edu, and RealClearPolitics. As far back as October 27, 2011, Romney has NEVER led Obama in Ohio in the RCP poll average. It'll be okay. Take a deep breath and say, "Todd Akin, go suck a dick." Now, doesn't that feel better?
  35. anonymous612 Member

    if it was a legitimate dick his body would have defenses for that sort of thing.

  37. UAH? That's a really good school for anything to do with space, be it aerospace engineering or astrophysics in his case. It's in the same city as the famous Redstone Arsenal. Anything NASA has done has had something to do with the Marshall Space Flight Center there. The United States Space Camp is also in that area, and I wish my parents had been able to afford to send me there when I was a kid.
  38. Paroxetine Samurai Moderator

    I kinda was being facetious about Romney getting Ohio. Odds are good that he won't and that will cost Rom-nuts 20 electoral votes.

    As for Akin: They did a poll and McCaskill was beating Akin 46 to 40.

    What does that mean? Out of 700 people in this state of mine: 46% would vote for McCaskill. 40% are retarded, inbred dumbfuck, pro-rape pedophiles or trolls are saying they will just to fuck with Akin. Be hilarious if it was the latter.
