      I was so disappointed our National Geographic channel here in Canada didn’t air it. I’m hoping someone is going to put it on the inner tubes. If it turns out like the movie “game change” from HBO it will likely be somewhere to watch on the internet.
      Keeping fingers crossed.

        I think everyone just wants this over with pickle. It’s been a long time a coming getting this man back into office for another 4 years. With that I have great confidence that he will keep his chair at the oval office. :-) Hang in there e1 there in the U.S. You all did a fantastic job supporting your president. Hats off to you all!

    RUDY (NOUN + VERB + 9/11) GIULIANI HOLDS HIS NOSE AND CAMPAIGNS FOR ROMNEY

    1) Joe Biden: Noun + Verb + 9/11 = Giuliani Vocabulary

    2) The ‘I Hate Romney’ Club

    But this week it was Giuliani who dropped out of the race and endorsed McCain, praising him as an “American hero.”

    The endorsement was a reflection of the authentic respect McCain and Giuliani have for each other. But that’s not all the two candidates share. The endorsement deal was solidifed when both campaigns stayed at the Deerfield Hilton in Florida, following the Republican debate in Boca Raton on January 24. The two campaigns’ staff mingled easily over drinks. Acknowledging that his candidate was not likely to survive a defeat in Florida, a Giuliani aide approached one of the McCain senior staffers. Come Wednesday, he said, “Just tell us what want us to do — we’ve got to stop him.”

    “Him,” of course, is Mitt Romney, the candidate who seems to be uniting his Republican rivals almost as much as Hillary Clinton. “The degree to which campaigns’ personal dislike for Mitt Romney has played a part in this campaign cannot be underestimated,” says an adviser to one of those rival campaigns. While sharp words have been exchanged between practically every Republican candidate at one point or another on the campaign trail, the aversion to Romney seems to go beyond mere policy disagreements. It’s also a suspicion of what they see is his hypocrisy and essential phoniness — what one former staffer for Fred Thompson called Romney’s “wholesale reinvention.”

      Romney is a turd, Ladyhawke, he’s always been a turd, and the republican politicians know he’s a turd. What appalls me most about Romney, republican politicians, and their supporters is that they all know he’s a turd, and that they’re willing to vote for him and make him POTUS.

    I’ve missed most of the events today. Once I had a rally on in background. Was really too busy to watch or even listen. Looking forward to this one, then its off to bed. 0600 comes mighty early!

    From Charles Pierce –

    “It just should be easier than this to vote. It just should be. At the end of the president’s speech, I was standing on the press riser with White House adviser Valerie Jarrett, who was keeping up with all of this on her BlackBerry. “Why are we arguing about voting in the United States of America in 2012?” she asked. She had me there.”

    Talk all over the interwebs and slowly getting into the MSM about vote suppression in Ohio and Florida. When Romney loses those 2 states there will be NO argument – PBO will win by many more votes than the count represents.

        Hi Bob – if you are still around – I loved your comment on middle age and over the hill – (especially given my elder person status)

        I think it was truer than you know – In my other life I am a family history resarcher and my extended family all lived on the eastern coast of Australia (after leaving the UK) – I have visited many resting places in many small coastal towns & they are all on the side of the hill – overlooking the sea – often the best piece of real estate in the town.

        What is completely astounding to me: no one in the Republican party or the Romney campaign thought to pull together these CEO’s, showing them contributing millions to the relief effort for Sandy. After all, ‘charity’ is supposed to be adequate to do the job where government is not, right? Yet no one thought to show these bastards who have spent millions to lie about PBO & other Dem’s, actually using their wealth for good.

    Meanwhile over at sam wang’s place

    Princeton Student // Nov 4, 2012 at 9:54 pm

    Professor Wang,

    All of the models you discussed seem to have Obama winning. So can you tell me whether articles like this (http://www.politico.com/news/stories/1112/83288.html?hp=t2_3) are just campaigns/media trying to spin or a legitimate concern. Silver addressed the possibility that all the state polls could be off but do you think pollsters are inaccurately predicting the 2012 turnout demographic vs. that of 2008?

    Sam Wang // Nov 4, 2012 at 10:06 pm

    Well, yes. That is because they use the same empirical data. I am unaware of any legitimate calculation that shows otherwise.

    The alternative: by some odd coincidence, pollsters as a group, who were within <1% in the last two elections, suddenly all went off beam by an average of 3%. This was noticed right at the moment when it would push the race to Romney, despite an overall Obama +3% lead. All the rarely-polling organizations happen to side with the nonpartisan pollsters, as Drew Linzer has shown. And the three lone holdouts are Rasmussen, Gravis, and ARG.

    This hypothesis does not seem parsimonious. It seems to be a transparent ploy. On the other hand, Romney’s chief pollster says I am misled.

          Of course, Majii, they have, and not just to give Romney a boost, but to suck 100s of millions of Koch, Adelson, etc $$ into their and, much more importantly, broadcast industry coffers.

          And, while the plutocrats won’t have their puppet in the White House they know full well that their ‘downside’ with President Obama is zero.

          The truly smart uber-rich dudes – like Buffet, Gates, etc – know that the very best thing for their continued expansion of personal wealth is a thriving American economy and they know President Obama is way, way better than Romney and his crazy neocon masters in ensuring the stability and sustainability that yields that result.

          Majii, may be these pollsters have inside knowledge and are trying to provide cover for plans to electronically steal the election. Somehow, I don’t think that all these billionaires and millionaires spent so much money without a back up plan. The only way to defeat them is through massive voting.

  52. 164 99ts
    November 5, 2012 at 3:26 am

    The only reason the turnout will be less than 2008 (if it is) is the GOP voter suppression – user-id laws – confusion – no time to vote – etc etc. This was ALL part of the greater GOP plan to make PBO a one term President. The nonsense by the media after the first debate was an attempt to reduce the enthusiasm of democratic voters – and it did quite the opposite. The polls, at that time, and since, imo are dropping 1-2% minimum from President Obama.

    • November 5, 2012 at 4:01 am

      On our side, given all the early voting data we’ve seen, 99, it appears we will exceed 2008 turnout. The more the GOP tries to suppress, the more aware everyone has become that we must crush them, now.

        Bob, you are absolutely right that turnout in this election will exceed the 2008 turnout! This is what’s is scaring them. The reported record numbers for AA early voters in NC will send shock waves in Republican circles. This is going to be a very difficult election for them to steal.

        • November 5, 2012 at 8:22 am

          Agree, nath. As you note …

          “The reported record numbers for AA early voters in NC will send shock waves in Republican circles.”

          When those numbers were announced late yesterday I stood up and cheered.

          The AA, Hispanic, LGBT, young Americans & WOMEN all know that there is no going backwards that won’t mean decades of hardship and no guarantee that the discrimination Mitt and the Tea Party will heap on them will ever be overcome.

          Those NC AA numbers, including the fact that 61% of that massive turnout were AA women – that has to be what we see all throughout the Nation.

I was canvassing again in New Hampshire and will be off again in half an hour for the third consecutive day in the Granite State. OFA Massachusetts had more than 1600 volunteers in NH yesterday. I truly believe that NH will stay blue and I will be happy to know that I was part of this great effort to secure four more years for the best President ever.

    Morning everyone! Just finished reading here. Was exhausted last night when I got back from the office (OFA) Made hundreds of calls, trained people on Dashboard and call sheet calls….place was packed! I decided to call Ohio yesterday…got one clueless woman on the phone, she answered instead of her sister, that I was SUPPOSED to talk to, but she wasn’t home. If I had to guess, I’d say this woman was in her early 20’s…..she told me that she wasn’t voting. EVER! WTF!!! I told her that I was very sad to hear that and asked her why. She HATES govt, thinks both PBO and R are a joke,and was never going to vote. So young, so ignorant and cynical already…..since I was on the phone with her and really wanted to move along, and let’s face it, I wasn’t going to change HER mind….I let her go. But holy shit….I literally had to walk away from my computer and take a break after that one. I’ve NEVER been at a loss for words, but her cynical ugly take really amazed me…especially at such a young age….and being a WOMAN! THAT blew me away.

    The rest of my calls, when I got someone on the phone, went great. Lots had voted for PBO already…and gave voting info to a nice guy that was going to vote early today.

    I was so tired that I went to bed at 8:30 last night….sorry that I missed Jeff’s birthday… Happy Birthday, Jeff!!!!

    Amk….I wished you a Happy Birthday yesterday, but not sure that you saw my BD wishes to you:) Hugs!

    Did y’all here about Linda McMahon slapping her face next to a pic of PBO saying that CT voters can vote for her and PBO? The kicker? Those fliers are mostly in black communities. They have ads running of so called Obama supporters who will be voting for that Repuke trash. SMH. hopefully, the ad that PBO cut for that state has been running non stop all over CT. Also, hopefully, they realize its just another dirty rethug trick.

    More tax evasion through the NETHERLANDS????????????? http://www.democraticunderground.com/10021715130

    Major Dutch Paper Discovers: Romney avoided $100m taxes through the Netherlands.

    I say we round up all these little POS…THE TAKERS, and throw all their sorry asses in JAIL! The ones that evaded taxes, suppressed voters, didn’t play by the same rules as everyone else…you know who I’m talking about! Maybe they could ALL go share a cell in one of their private prisons and PAY FOR IT THEMSELVES!

      Hi df – ty for all you do – sad about the young lass – maybe someone in her family will sort her out – my daughter was that way inclined – and we had a long long talk about WHY that attitude would never fix anything – I think these are the young ones who should be taking part in the debate/discussion – get themselves a say – rather than scream from the outside.

      As for Romney & his friends – they are takers, all for self, all the time. I keep thinking Romney is worse than McCain – until I hear the latter still ranting and raving – he just can’t believe the black guy defeated him – will be interesting how Romney copes with that result.

        Hi there, 99ts:) Glad you had “the talk” with your daughter! Something tells me that no one will do the same for that poor lost soul I talked to yesterday. So sad. As far as who’s worse…they’re ALL pathetic. They have all lost their way and deserve to be barred from holding nay elected office for generations.

    The last impreMedia-Latino Decisions 2012 tracking poll shows Obama’s lead over Romney with Latinos continuing to hover around the 50-percentage point mark.

  67. November 5, 2012 at 7:53 am

    President Obama embarks on his last day of campaigning before election day with stops in Madison, Wisc., Columbus, Ohio,  and Des Moines, Iowa. The president and first lady will then head to Chicago, where they will spend the night.

    Good morning, OTeam!! Can. Not. Sleep.

    A reminder of the power of our voices: As of the start of GOTV, OFA volunteers have made 125,646,479 personal phone calls or door knocks, not counting robo-calls, mail, literature drops. That’s PHENOMENAL. Enthusiasm gap, NOT.

    GM all – it’s after midnight here in Sydney and I can’t sleep – completely wired. Will not watch pundit coverage tomorrow night but will follow here first. I’m superstitious and everytime I’ve followed big events here O has done very well (2nd and 3rd debate, Eastwood, DNC convention, Biden debate). Last time I watched it all on MSNBC but it would work my last nerve to go through that tomorrow. Enjoy this last day of PBO rallies and keep pushing. Good luck.

    While SEIU has emphasized registering and mobilizing black and Latino voters, the AFL-CIO, from which SEIU disaffiliated in 2005, has made a massive push in Ohio’s white working class through its Working America program, which has signed up more than 1 million working-class Ohioans who don’t belong to unions to become members of its political action program. While Henry is door-knocking in a four-block stretch of Cleveland’s black community, AFL-CIO officials are canvassing the white working-class neighborhoods of Canton and Columbus. And both campaigns supplement the massive efforts of the Obama campaign itself.

    “What struck me today,” said Henry, “was how many people brought up voter suppression, and how it impelled them to vote early.” Voters raised the topic at doorstep after doorstep; one woman told Henry that she had lined up early on the day early voting started, three weeks ago, precisely because the Republicans’ effort to suppress the vote had made her determined to cast the first vote in Cleveland for Obama. Every voter who answered his or her door on Saturday, Henry said, had either voted early or would vote today and tomorrow, with the exception of just one determined to vote on Election Day itself.

      Obama, who was in Hollywood on Sunday, won’t be in Florida on Monday. But his wife, first lady Michelle Obama, will be in Orlando.
      Here’s a scorecard:
      •  Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa will be outside of the Miami-Dade Supervisor of Elections office in Doral with the Obama campaign to “encourage local residents to Vote Now!” at 9:30 a.m.

      •  First Lady Michelle Obama attends a Democratic rally in Orlando at 6 p.m.

    Can’t decide – I should go get some groceries, particularly juices so I can drink at the party, but having booted up the laptop I am on the way to being hooked in trying to catch up. Hmmmm….should I go before PBO’s first speech, or between the first and the second? These kinds of decisions are so difficult for me to make.

    • November 5, 2012 at 9:02 am

      :D :D :D :D

      Rush out and stock up, bountifully, and then you won’t have to leave your home until after you recover from the celebration – probably sometime on Friday :)

    • November 5, 2012 at 9:03 am

      I am making those decisions right now as well. I’m going to go in between speeches and stock up on everything I need for the next couple of days because I will be at one with my laptop. And soaking up all the details of VICTORY.

        Ah Meta and Bobfr, between the two of you I’m right back at the start! :lol: :lol: I’m going to take a shower and go now, I think, because I suspect that once I sit before the laptop it’ll be harder to get up. I’ve been standing all this time since I’m supposedly doing my dancercise. We won’t mention that my fingers have been by far the most active participant in this session….as is usually the case.

    Good morning, TOD family. I got the email to find out how many Lala’s have voted. Answer: 117. Now, the issues with my name is that it is spelled so many different ways: Layla, Laila, Leila and others. Of course, I have no way of knowing if they are counting all these spellings, but assume they are. Anyway, just love that the campaign is doing this. It’s just neat.

    Will be off in a bit to do some NC phone banking. FORWARD>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
