Mitt Romney Supports Barack Obama!

So get out and vote. Mitt gives us a good reason:

What is the potential of the youth vote in the election?


It’s a pretty substantial 20%… the question is will they show up? Here’s the demographics:

Here in the Shepherd University area where we see an awful lot of the youth category daily, we are curious as to how involved students are getting in the campaigns. From what I see it is minimal at best.

How is it where you are? Does it look like we will surpass the 2008 election or fall below it’s total of young voters? We’ll have to wait and see.

Poll: Wisconsin Voters Wouldn’t Elect Gov. Walker In Do-Over

Wisconsin voters already have buyers remorse about electing Gov. Scott Walker (R). 

In a PPP poll released Monday, a majority of registered Wisconsin voters say that in a hypothetical re-do of last year’s gubernatorial election, they would vote for Democrat Tom Barrett, whom Walker defeated in November. That finding comes as Walker continues to stand firm on his budget proposals that would strip most state public employees of long-held collective bargaining rights.

Fifty-two percent of respondents said they would vote for Barrett if the election were held today, while 45% said they would vote for Walker. That’s almost exactly the opposite of what happened in the election, when Walker won the governorship with 52% of the vote to Barrett’s 47%.
The huge shift comes, not surprisingly, from union members.

The results are the latest findings to show Walker losing support as the stalemate wears on.

Perhaps this is happening everywhere that Republicans got in last November as they ignore the people and go for firming up the rich…

Haiti hit by another earthquake

Haitians woke up to a 6.1-magnitude earthquake on Wednesday morning. The U.S. Geological survey is reporting the earthquake happened at 6:03 a.m., about 35 miles away from Port-au-Prince. People panicked and people started running as damaged buildings shook in Port-au-Prince, Haiti, said Luckner Laurent.
A week after Haiti was devastated by a 7.0-magnitude earthquake, ashen, ghostly survivors continued to be pulled from the rubble and the international community fought bottlenecks and rising tensions to provide aid to the shattered nation.

No, no, no… I don’t think the earthquake was a result of the Brown victory in Massachusetts.
Massachusetts, I believe, will come to regret it, but the world has to keep going…

Hey Connecticut Friends… Joan Walsh shows Scott Brown for what he REALLY is…

Smiling Scott Brown Slurs Obama

This from Joan Walsh in Salon… if it makes you angry, I hope you get good and mad before Tuesday and come out and vote for Coakley.

Who is Scott Brown, the man who could realistically replace Sen. Ted Kennedy in Massachusetts, and launch a Republican resurgence that points to the end of Barack Obama’s presidency? He got off one of the great lines of recent campaigns when he was asked in a debate about taking Kennedy’s seat and said, “With all due respect, it’s not the Kennedy’s seat, it’s not the Democrats’ seat, it’s the people’s seat.” He’s right, and Democrats including Brown’s opponent Martha Coakley have been moronic to act like he’s wrong.
Brown is also a cipher who’s backed by right-wing Tea Partiers and Birthers while trying to dodge the association. He’s shrugged off connections with the Tea Partiers while attending a fundraiser they held for him; check out their Facebook page organizing against Obama’s visit Sunday. Brown poses as a reasonable Republican, but told a reporter during the Republican National Convention that he wasn’t sure President Obama was born within wedlock.

Virginia went Republican

That’s the first of today’s elections to come through. McDonnell outscored Deeds by almost a 2 to 1 margin. This had been pretty much expected by the polls in the past couple of weeks. Interestingly, the polls of voters leaving the booths as to whether Obama was a factor in their decision showed that the President didn’t matter at all.

OK… waiting for New Jersey and NY States 23d District.
