Sadly there ARE some wing nuts like that still alive in the area of devastation.
The U.S. Justice Department will monitor early voting in Miami-Dade County to ensure compliance with the Voting Rights Act of 1965, according to the agency.
“Justice Department personnel will monitor polling place activities during early voting in this county. Civil Rights Division attorneys will coordinate federal activities and maintain contact with local election officials,” a release stated.
The oversight is standard for the DOJ but comes at a time of heightened concern over voting law changes in Florida.
That’s excellent jovie.
It’s a GREAT DAY in America!!
Just finished conference call with the President.
Tears streaming …
I managed to catch the last few minutes of the call. The President sounded energized and passionate. And determined to win. And I’m not sure which David was speaking at the end, but he was the same – they see the end goal, and they clearly want to crush Romney and his lies. They are driven. Those few minutes I caught were inspiring and wonderful.
We will win Alycee. Suck it up. Leave some for tears of Joy on Tuesday night, eh?
I too finished the call a few minutes ago….never had that experience before. The President is so confident and businesslike. No false rah-rah, just facts and sound advice. When the call finished, I donated more money. Also donated to the DCCC and Senator Sherrod Brown. I was born in Ohio, so I have “adopted” Senator Brown as my Senator. I admire him greatly.
When the man who introduced the president (I forget his name) said this is like the elections of 2000 and 2004, a huge chill went through my body. I certainly remember those, and we do NOT want another empty suit, puppet president run by a cabal of wealthy neo-cons!
I was on a conference call with the President in ’08. HIS VOICE. I was even thrilled when the operator said “This is Air Force One, please hold for the President.” Goosebumps, even now.
Me too, it was great to hear the president, early voting report is also very encouraging

The Challenge for Beijing's New Leaders: Chinese No Longer Bow to Autocratic Rule bit.ly/TiBKnP— SPIEGEL English (@SPIEGEL_English) November 02, 2012
The time of autocratic rule has passed for China’s Communist Party. At one time it was understood that the people would obey, and everyone would get rich in return. But economic success will no longer suffice. Now the Chinese are demanding freedom and security too.
NPR had a story last night about the secret jails that the local officials use to restrict people from complaining about government services, because every time a complaint reaches Beijing, the local official gets a black mark and it potentially impacts their career. The people might want freedom, but I think they have a long way to go to get to their version of the “Arab Spring”.
Jamelle Bouie at Plum Line writes: “Why the Senate will be more liberal in 2013″
“…This gets to one of the striking things about the Senate picture this year: It’s possible — and at this point, likely — that Democrats will maintain or grow their Senate majority and move it further to the left. In Hawaii, the Senate Democratic primary — to replace outgoing Sen. Daniel Akaka — was won by Rep. Mazie Hirono, one of the most liberal members of the House. Using DW/Nominate — which places all members of Congress on a scale of –1 (most liberal) to 1 (most conservative) — it’s easy to see that Hirono, at a score of -.555 is slightly more liberal than Akaka, who holds a score of -.444. The same goes for Chris Murphy in Connecticut, who is more liberal than Joe Lieberman, and Tammy Baldwin in Wisconsin, who — if she wins — will be substantially more liberal than outgoing Sen. Herb Kohl.
…When you combine this with the likely pick-up in Indiana — and the elections in Virginia, Florida, Missouri, Montana and Ohio — where Democrats will maintain the status quo, it makes for a Senate that’s far more liberal than the one that exists. The same goes for if Democrats make upsets in Nevada and Arizona, where they’re fighting tough but winnable races against favored Republicans. If he wins, Arizona’s Richard Carmona is likely to enter the Senate as a Blue Dog. But by replacing Jon Kyl — one of the most conservative members of the Senate — Democrats will have substantially shifted the center of ideological gravity.”
I also think it’s significant that the tea party is on the run, and many Republicans are running on their ability to “buck the party” and compromise. I think they know people are sick of Washington gridlock, and many more people are starting to realize what damage the GOP strategy of obstruction has done to the pace of progress for this country. Mitt’s lies have given the Obama administration a chance to point out what they’ve been doing this whole time, and who’s been obstructing them from doing even more – to the point that the Obama administration hasn’t had to spend a lot of time talking about the inherited bad economy, but to focus instead on what the GOP have done to obstruct them with Obamacare, the auto bailout, the Stimulus, financial reform, investments in infrastructure and technology. If Romney had remained on the economy and just hammered his false claim of being able to boost the economy using his non-existent business skills, it might have been harder to point out all the good stuff that’s happened. If the GOP had picked anyone else as their nominee, it might have been harder to point out the Congressional gridlock brought by the GOP. And if Romney hadn’t picked Paul Ryan, it might have been harder to point out the GOP budget goals and their determination to kill all social programs in favor of giving tax cuts to the rich. The arrogance and stupidity of the GOP have brought about their own destruction, and helped to set up President Obama so he could communicate everything he’s done, and amplify the difference between him and the GOP.
Beautifully said, Theo! Their arrogance from 01/20/09 onwards is one of the roots/route to their demise. No RIP from me at this time, I’ll try another day when I can feel a tad generous towards them!
Yup – I don’t want any GOPers resting in peace. I want them writhing in agony.
One of those little devils is me!
I’m thrilled for the company!

Mitt Romney Climate Change | #Sandy #election2012 http://t.co/MGb3EULc— Metro Hussein Jerry (@JBucknoff) November 02, 2012
LOVED, LOVED, LOVED seeing the President in Boulder last night. And thanks Chipsticks for posting the video of his speech. The best part is at 15:40, where the President is talking about Mitt Romney characterizing his plans as “change” and a man from the crowd over on our side yells, “CHUMP CHANGE”. You see Obama’s reaction (priceless) and then the crowd picks it up…pretty cool. Great energy in that room!
Not sure if the “chump change interchange” is original to the speech last night, but the President seemed to enjoy it…
LOL. Love that the crowd picks up on the chump change chant.

President John Kennedy reminds you to vote on Nov. 6. (1 min. video) fb.me/2erac2CIC— Georgia Democrat (@GeorgiaDemocrat) November 02, 2012
G’m TOD…Great fired up speech by our Prez just now in Ohio. He is really bringing it home.
I signed on to the President’s call to supporters right after and it was good to hear very,very encouraging
updates about early voting in all states from Jim Messina. Dems seem to be leading in all the early
voting states. Even in FL, we have wiped out t R’s absentee ballot advantage.
Then our wonderful Prez, who had just finished speaking came on the call and thanked us for all we have
done and continue to do. He is Grateful and I love that. Where he gets the energy…I don’t know. Well yes
I do know. He is being Divinely strenghtened.
The call did cut out a few times but I got enough and even recorded it on my tablet and cell phone for posterity.
Btw, Jim Messina (who spoke before the Prez) or whoever it is that spoke, specifically stated that we should not
be swayed by the polls or pay too much attention to them. To that I say AMEN!

Toledo Blade front page today: "Many Detroit residents still angry with Romney's anti-bailout stance" http://t.co/3PH77rKT— The Obama Diary (@TheObamaDiary) November 02, 2012
About 3.5 million Floridians have already cast absentee and in-person early voting and Democrats have an edge of about 76,000 ballots cast so far.
Expect that to continue to grow over the next two days of in-person early voting, which Democrats dominate, especially in South Florida, which is why the GOP Legislature and Gov. Rick Scott effectively shortened early voting days. Democrats have rolled up a 156,000 early vote edge while Republicans lead in absentee ballots case by about 80,000. If every Democrat and Republican who requested an absentee ballot voted it, the GOP absentee-ballot lead would be cut by half.
Most polls show Mitt Romney’s winning, and Republicans note that Democrats won’t have the early vote advantage they had in 2008 (when they led by anywhere from 250,000 to 363,000 ballots, depending on how you analyze the data).
Well, shortening early voting days from 14 to eight will, by definition, help shorten the number of early votes. Understand also that, relative to the actual early voting hours available in South Florida in 2008, early voting time has been cut 20 percent, or 24 total hours. And South Florida favors President Obama the most. However, Democrats are barely matching their raw early vote numbers compared to four years ago.
Democrats also point out that Republicans have been talking a better game than they’ve produced on the ground. Republicans predicted they’d be up in early ballots cast on Election Day. It’s pretty clear they won’t be. The Democratic total vote margin increases with each day of early voting.
So what happens on Election Day? May the best ground game win.
This guy has a republican slant.
