    I just voted for President Obama in early voting in Chicago!!!!!! (And since I’m in Chicago I will follow our motto and “vote early and often” perhaps 7 more times yet this election. Kidding!!

    The ballot was very strange – it had POTUS listed first before Vulcher/Voucher which I liked but the name was shown as B. Obama and J. Biden. LOL, seriously? Too much effort to type their full first name?

      Were the first names for the other candidates fully spelled out, or was it the same for all candidates on the ballot?

        Crap I’m trying to remember if I looked at Vulcher/Voucher – I think I saw it the same (with first letter abbreviation – but I hate to even look at them so I’m not sure I did. The names of judges and other down ticket candidates were spelled out.

    Yesterday one of the traveling press with the Romney camp tweeted that they were using curtains to give the appearance that the venue they were holding a rally in was full.

    Yet, BriWi spends his time with the President talking about how our crowd sizes aren’t 100K people this election cycle. Our media is worthless, pathetic, lazy, sloppy good for nothings. Sheesh! They make me sick :(

    And this manipulation of the crowd posted in the thread head will get little to know play on the news. Had it been PBO’s camp it would be Headline News.

      This is why no one ever tells us the size of Romney’s crowds. They have to keep the fantasy of inevitability going. The rare occasions when there is a good sized crowd are the only times we get a real photo. This photo-shopping is really pathetic though.

        The Romney campaign usually reports their own crowd sizes and inflates the figures – as they do their fundraising numbers. The Obama crowd sizes are always reported by Fire Marshalls, Park or other public officials not affiliated with the campaign. The media does not question the Romney campaign, but simply repeats their false reports.

        debz, there is truly nothing R/R won’t lie about. It’s all smoke, mirrors, bluff and psych ops.

    [Right on! CFPB!!]:

    WASHINGTON, D.C. – The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) published a rule today that will allow the agency to federally supervise the larger consumer debt collectors for the first time. The CFPB also released the field guide that examiners will use to ensure that companies and banks engaging in debt collection are following the law.

    “Millions of consumers are affected by debt collection, and we want to make sure they are treated fairly,” said CFPB Director Richard Cordray. “Today we are announcing that we will be supervising the larger debt collectors in the market for the first time at the federal level. We want all companies to realize that the better business choice is to follow the law — not break it.”

    Michelle Obama will visit Boston on Tuesday for a pair of fund-raisers benefitting her husband’s reelection campaign.

    The first lady will attend a $20,000-per-head roundtable discussion at Via Matta restaurant across the street from the Boston Park Plaza Hotel, followed by a low-dollar event with a bigger crowd at the Park Plaza Castle.

    Tickets for the “Taste of Boston” event – which will feature foods from local chefs including Will Gilson of the Herb Lyceum, Jody Adams of Rialto and Trade, and Gordon Hamersley of Hamersley’s Bistro – range from $250 per person to $2,500.

    Hamersley hosted President Obama at his South End restaurant in June for his own fund-raising roundtable. The president then went on to a bigger event at Symphony Hall.

    Michelle Obama’s visit – the last to Boston by a campaign surrogate before Election Day – comes as her husband’s campaign targets the neighboring swing state of New Hampshire.

    The president will visit there on Saturday, while Vice President Joe Biden will campaign there on Monday.

    Mitt is also saying that he had 12,000 at the Meathead concert. It looks much smaller from the photo

      WOW..that number changes as often as Mitt’s position changes. Yesterday the Romney camp said it was 6000. Today it’s doubled? HAHAHAHAHAHAHA

    We’re doing well in Ohio. The latest slew of polls from NBC/WSJ, TIME, CBS/NYT and now CNN/ORC shows our ground game is on point.

    1. That has got to be one of the sloppiest photoshops ever.

    2. If that is a place in Henderson, I’ve performed Shakespeare there.

    3. Romney’s camp is pathetic and desperate even when they’re trying to steal it.

    And it only seat 800 people MAX – 400 under the canopy, and another 400 on the lawn.
