How Bengazi Led To The Middle East Flare Up

I Choose: The Fiscal Cliff

Hard to believe this, but after a lot of thought I think the best path forward for this nation is to let Harry Reid and President Obama have their way and let sequestration go into effect.

The Disaster That Was GOP GOTV On Election Day

Major Update: More pathetic details here: As the Web traffic from volunteers attempting to connect to Orca mounted, the system crashed repeatedly because of bandwidth constraints.

The Obligatory “You’ll Eat Your Crow And Like It” Post

One of the great things about blogging is when you have an epic face plant moment, you get to post about it the next day – no matter what. /sarcasm Amazingly, President Obama ran the table of swing states – taking all but North Carolina. Color me sadly stunned. I got none right, outside NC. […]

Media Body Language

Published by under All General Discussions

Dialed in Fox News at 6 PM. Everyone up beat and positive. Dialed into MSNBC, Mathews looks like he is sitting a hemorrhoid. Now MSNBC is talking big, but I am not seeing it in the faces. Update: CNN not looking too perky either…. Update: Trick Or Treat Pollsters: I am hearing on Twitter that […]

Where Does Ohio Stand Going Into Election Day?

Edited at 3:00 & 3:07 PM Eastern, Updated 3:40 PM OK, I needed to get some confidence that Romney will win this thing, and so I took a look at the county-by-county tallies for Ohio’s early/absentee voting and did some analysis.  Due to the complexity and size of the spreadsheet I am not posting the […]

Even In Chicago, Obama Has Performance Issues

Published by under 2012 Elections

Does anyone really think Obama has the Big Mo’ if he can’t even ignite his home town? According to the numbers, at this point in 2008, there were 260,376 early voters and 304,290 absentee voters. Now, the party maintains, there are 195,064 early voters and 46,232 absentee voters. That’s a loss of 57 percent of […]

Polling In An Alternate Universe Part Deux: The Acid Trip

Published by under 2012 Elections

I plan to come out with my  predictions later today. Needless to say I have been waiting because I want to see Gallup’s last hurrah today before jumping in.
