Blog Running – ‘The Post’s View – Mitt Romney’s campaign insults voters’

‘THROUGH ALL THE flip-flops, there has been one consistency in the campaign of Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney: a contempt for the electorate’.

‘How else to explain his refusal to disclose essential information’?

‘There has been his chronic, baldly dishonest defense of mathematically impossible budget proposals’.

‘He promised to cut income tax rates without exploding the deficit or tilting the tax code toward the rich — but he refused to say how he could bring that off.

‘History has shown that it’s a lot easier to cut taxes than to reduce spending’.

‘Republican presidents Ronald Reagan and George W. Bush promised to do both, managed to do only the first and (with plenty of help from Congress) greatly increased the national debt’.

‘Now Mr. Romney promises to reduce income tax rates by one-fifth — for the rich, that means from 35 percent to 28 percent — and to raise defense spending while balancing the budget’.

‘To do so, he would reduce other spending — unspecified — and take away deductions — unspecified’.

‘How, other than an assumption that voters are too dim to remember what Mr. Romney has said across the years and months, to account for his breathtaking ideological shifts’?

‘He was a friend of immigrants, then a scourge of immigrants, then again a friend’.

‘He was a Kissingerian foreign policy realist, then a McCain-like hawk, then a purveyor of peace’.

‘He pioneered Obamacare, he detested Obamacare, then he found elements in it to cherish’.

‘Assault weapons were bad, then good’.

‘Abortion was okay, then bad’.

‘Climate change was an urgent problem; then, not so much’.

‘Hurricane cleanup was a job for the states, until it was once again a job for the feds’.

‘Mr. Romney, by contrast, seems to be betting that voters have no memories, poor arithmetic skills and a general inability to look behind the curtain. We hope the results Tuesday prove him wrong’.

A ‘Conservative’ vision for America – ‘Department of Justice Investigating Alleged Ballot Fraud At Clackamas County Elections’

Dear Voters – Please just send in your ballots blank.
We’ll fill it out for you.
The Republican Party

‘A Clackamas County elections worker is under criminal investigation for tampering with ballots, WW has learned’.

‘The underlying allegation is that the woman, whose name has not been released, filled in blanks on ballots turned into the county for the Nov. 6 general election’.

‘Sources familiar with the incident say their understanding is that the woman filled in a straight Republican ticket on the ballots where preferences had been left blank by voters’.

‘Volunteers For Voter Suppression Group Installed As Election Officials In Ohio’

There are going to be so many eyes of Ohio that I really can’t imagine any thing untword happening but then again……

‘Conservative poll observers are gearing up for Election Day, when they will watch for possible instances of voter fraud and challenge voters they find suspicious’.

‘As ThinkProgress reported, many of these volunteers have been fed false or misleading information about voting rights by the Romney campaign and independent Tea Party groups’.

‘But one True the Vote affiliate, the Ohio Voter Integrity Project, is taking their election interference one step further’.

‘Ohio VIP has recruited and dispatched poll workers who will not be merely observing, but directly involved in the voting process in a crucial swing state’.

‘Hamilton County elections director Tim Burke told the Columbus Dispatch that VIP poll workers will represent the Republican Party:

“We know that the Voter Integrity Project has recruited and through the (Hamilton) County Republican Party has placed some poll workers. I have discussed this with my Republican counterpart”.

“I accept the fact that he understands that the VIP pollworkers are working for the Board of Elections on Election Day and are subject to the board’s instructions, not the VIP instruction. Obviously both sides are going to have observers as well as poll workers. I, and others will spend the day responding to trouble calls”.

‘While in-person voter fraud is exceedingly rare, overzealous poll workers could jeopardize legitimate votes by forcing them to use provisional ballots, which cannot be counted until November 17’.

‘Ohio’s provisional ballot mess is already threatening to disenfranchise thousands of legitimate voters — the bulk of whom live in urban, minority-heavy areas like Hamilton County, which contains Cincinnati’.

‘In 2004, Ohio tossed out thousands of provisional ballots, concentrated in Hamilton and the state’s four other urban counties. Sen. John Kerry (D-MA) lost Ohio by a narrow margin in 2004, allowing George W. Bush to win a second term’.

‘Chart: Almost Every Obama Conspiracy Theory Ever’

From Who Else?

The Great People over at Mother Jones!

As I am want to say to the teabaggers – ‘Are your scews that lose or did you tighten them too tight’?

‘Barack Obama’s presidency has been an inspiration to many Americans—especially nutjobs’.

‘Ever since the first-black-president-to-be appeared on the national political stage, a cottage industry of conservative conspiracy theorists has churned out bizarro, paranoid, and just plain racist effluvia—some of which has trickled into the political mainstream. Below, we’ve charted some of the Obama-baiters best (i.e., worst) work’.

The Daily 2012 – And I (and a LOT of others) make it Ten – ‘Nine 2012 Electoral College predictions have Obama ahead’

I’m still standing on Obama 294 – Romney 244.

The popular vote is very slowly starting to lean towards the President also but way to early to see if that will hold.

Several have Obama winning Florida thus giving Obama a large Electoral vote.

I’m thinking Florida will be called for Romney even before the voting closes here in the West. And so do most others.

‘The nine predictions below agree on a few swing states: Romney will win North Carolina; Obama will win Nevada, Ohio, Iowa and New Hampshire. They differ on Colorado, Virginia and Florida, however’.
