Thank you @utaustinliberal
Yes, We Can and Yes, We Will.
Go amk! Still flying high on your B-day! :-D
Wait a minute – how is it that amk gets to straddle two days for his birthday, while we ordinary folks get only one day? :)
Because he’s amk. And because I think it’s some TOD law or something (that last part could have been coming from amk, I forget).
Congrats on first, and happy birthday amk!
Congrats on first!
Happy birthday AMK and congrats on
Thanks Robin and Elle.
Now Chips, if I can have my pic, I will be on my way.
Many Happy Returns of the Day, AMK! Always appreciate your comments.
Thanks a bunch maryl.
Is it tomorrow yet?
It is. In my place. And they say the tomorrow never comes. :)
No, tomorrow is the NEW tomorrow.
……….it’s the day before the old tomorrow.
Look forward to tomorrow night, pops! That $20 bill keeps asking me: ” when am I going home, Lisa? When will I make my new home in Popsie’s wallet? What’s the exchange rate for me in India?” I keep trying to calm 20 down, but you’ve got her revved up with your florida prediction.
My wallet??? The blasphemy!!! It’s going to be gold framed and hung in my office with a note saying in case of emergency, break the glass. So better make it a mint fresh, crispy note..
1 to 50 is good money. :)
11.19am tomorrow at my place
Ohmigosh, is it really true?! Third? Me, a Newbie?
Darn it, thought I was right behind Robin.
Welcome, noobie. What took you so long ? :)
Thanks, AMK. For the first time in my two weeks in Canada I am warm because I am just vibrating with nerves and excitement and tension and I’m shaking! I don’t know how I’ll make it to tomorrow night.

I knew it! Said it a few threads past! Awesomeness!
“At 9am Election Day, a federal judge will decide whether untested and uncertified secret software will remain on Ohio’s vote tabulation and reporting systems in 39 counties. Bob Fitrakis, in his capacity as the Chair of the Ohio Green Party, filed suit at approximately 12:30pm on Monday, November 5 against Ohio Secretary of State John Husted and Elections Systems and Solutions for their clandestine installation of uncertified and untested software. Judge Frost, U.S. District Court Southern District Court of Ohio, agreed to the hearing to be held Tuesday, November 6.
The suit seeks immediate the injunctive relief of removing the untested, uncertified software from all county tabulators.
Should there be insufficient time or resources to remove said software from the tabulators, those tabulators will not be used and all ballots will be counted by hand if either the state or federal judge grants the injunction.”
BREAKING: OH SOS Husted patch to be reviewed by Fed Judge tomorrow AM! dailykos.com/story/2012/11/… … #tcot #LetMyPeopleVote— (@RiskyLiberal) November 06, 2012
Does the Obama campaign have a position about this software? If it were installed illegally and presents a danger to the integrity of the election process, wouldn’t they have take a position and acted on it??
Reply to the tweet with your question and include .@Obama2012 and .@Lawyers44.
He only had the ‘patches’ installed in the past few days. Have ZERO doubt that the DoJ and lawyers from President Obama’s campaign are paying attention to the issue – and not just in OH. But, it is much better to call this out before the tabulation starts than after. We learned that lesson – in OH – the hard way in 2004.
Always remember Tammany Hall boss William Marcy Tweed: “As long as I count the votes, what are you going to do about it?”
The most efficient way to hack an election is not at the ballot box or electronic voting machine – its at the top of the stack, the tabulation be it in software or ink on paper :)
I have great skepticism about this. It is being ramrodded by the Green Party, no involvement from the Obama campaign, no public statements, nothing. At this point it is a way for the Green Party to interject itself into the election. If this were a real problem, the Obama campaign and the DOJ would have their lawyers on this case. They don’t. They are not a party to the lawsuit and to my knowledge have not filed any brief in this case. It has been known since last week.
We should applaud the Green Party for stepping in not look for ulterior motives. Also, there are several hundred lawyers in OH for the Obama camp right now. There is absolutely no indication whatsoever that Obama and his team aren’t keeping an eye on things.
The agenda of the Naderite Green Party is to split off votes from the President. If there were any truth or any threat to victory tomorrow, there would be a huge pushback and massive legal action. I trust in the competency of the Obama campaign. I don’t trust the Green Party and their motives in this. And I don’t like fear mongering without evidence.
Everyone should move on. Everything is already under surveillance. Seriously, move on. Spend your time getting out the vote. I will be a pollworker tomorrow doing my little part. Make yourself available to stand in line for peeps. Bring water and snacks. Cheer those in line with great music. Keep peeps motivated and IN LINE UNTIL THEY VOTE!!
“And I don’t like fear mongering without evidence.”
Maybe you should start with the first article and keep reading.
Ooops! Forgot the web site. Also, we don’t know what PBO knows. I doubt many of the acts of the evildoers are made public.
Ok, so I know I’m a nervous wreck. Here’s the link:
We do know what PBO hasn’t done. His campaign has made no statements, filed no briefs, registered no objections to this computer process. We do know that a leftist Green Party guy and his “Free Press” have made this an issue but with no proof and certainly not acting or consulting with the Obama campaign. Count me skeptical. If the Obama campaign thought this was a real threat to their victory tomorrow, do you think for a minute they wouldn’t be all over this. I just don’t like fear mongering without evidence???
“I just don’t like fear mongering without evidence???”
Don’t know who your accusing of ‘fear mongering’ with or without evidence but your comments suggest considerable naivete about software. And, you make a whole bunch of unfounded assumptions which you certainly can do but they put you exactly in the same category of your ‘straw man,’ and you seem not to realize that.
Husted has to be on the “one term President” payroll – he has pulled every trick to restrict voting in Ohio – an infamous legacy.
Husted is going to jail. Do you recall how they caught BLAGO?

I must say, I got a little teary reading this. My mom died waiting for a heart transplant because she had CHF. Stem cell research will BE GONE with Romney. We can NOT let this, and so many other things, all bad, happen. Thanks for posting this, jovie.
Every time I turn to CSPAN one TV, they’re showing either a Ryan Rally or Romney Rally.
I haven’t turn it to C-Span once today, nor CNN, and I just turn to MSNBC for the first time to watch Ed.
The media have done everything possible to help the Republican defeat President Obama. That includes C-SPAN and NPR and PBS.
And PBO is still winning – the sad on Wednesday will be a joy to watch
Yes, and we will send the media a message tomorrow.

That’s what I am talking about! People are pissed off and fired up. Tired of being lied to and cheated; tired of our President being treated with a lack of respect. The sleeping giant has awakened and he is ferocious! Thanks for sharing thus tweet and for all of the incredible work that you do in support of PBO.
Yes, Ceb, we are done with those folk. Together, we defeat them tomorrow and we move forward, together with our President.
Thank you for your kind words. We each do what we can; we do all of it, together. That is our strength.
Evening everyone. Still recovering so had to take another day off work today. Spent my day making GOTV calls to PA. Left many messages and spoke to some people who were supportive of the President and planned to vote on Tuesday. I wanted to ask a favor of folks who can do this. If you have even a couple of hours tomorrow to make some calls to PA and to OH, please do so. The campaign can use all hands on deck. Looking forward to celebrating another victory for the President tomorrow night. I received my official invitation to McCormick Place this morning. Unfortunately, I am still not feeling well and the invitation is non-transferrable so I can’t even give it to someone else to use. Huge Bummer. #Forward
I got home from work today and made calls to Ohio until my cell pooped out. Talked to many people today, unlike yesterday, and they were fired up and ready to vote! Some had already voted…they know the stakes in this election:) Took the day off work tomorrow and will be right back at it! Thanks for all you do, MK :)
Desertflower, this is great news. Thank YOU for all of your hard work in support of this campaign and to ensure that all of our children and grandchildren will have a brighter future. FIRED UP! READY TO GO!
It’s my honor to work for this President. I wouldn’t have it any other way:) Could never live with myself if I didn’t fight as hard for him as he has fought for us!
Not to worry. I’m off tomorrow as well. Will be dropping door hangers, calling, taking voters to polls. Did a bit of canvassing this evening. We will get this done here in Pennsy.
Thank you! Thank you!!
November Surprise – Obama Sanctions Force Shutdown of Iranian Nuclear Program p.ost.im/p/dBPTF3 via @AddInfoOrg— patty jo bray (@patty_bray) November 06, 2012
Does the MSM know this? Has it been reported? I never watch those idiots
I never do, either, df.
They will probably report it on Wednesday. Now if Iran had issued a statement that their Nuclear Program was alive and well, the MSM would have repeated this over and over again until election time.
robmey adresses his diary:
‘ As for tomorrow, I had planned to spend the better part of tomorrow savoring my victory, but the staff has evidently scheduled still more campaign appearances. Apparently these commoners need constant encouragement if they are to vote for me. When I am president, one of my first actions after adjusting the tax rates for wealthy Americans will be to form a committee to establish the best ways of further discouraging these commoners from voting. To be blunt, their minds are too scattered for it. It requires too many individual campaign events and rallies, and it could all be done far more efficiently by merely allowing only wealth units to vote, then bundling the votes from wealth units into leveraged products that would represent all the other votes. Then financial companies could purchase and sell those packages of votes, which would be quite profitable. (If my past businesses experiences have taught me anything, Mr. Diary, it is that there is very little that cannot be made more profitable by removing commoners from the process.) ‘

I get tears in my eyes everytime I see these pictures of people waiting in line for so many hours to get their vote counted. It is just so inspiring how Americans are dedicated to this election. Way to go to all that are so determined, bravo!

Visit NBCNews.com for breaking news, world news, and news about the economy
apologies…… delete this please. Didn’t come out right.
Rachael Maddow is doing an awesome job tonight outlining the Presidents achievements.
…”and he quit smoking!” :-)
Ms. Chips has to post Rachael Maddow’s segment on “Elections have consequences!” Now she will be spoiling it was Dan Rather next! URGH!
That she did…Matzzzz…..but still it was a stellar highlight of the Presdent’s accomplishments
Yep! I clicked off … I can’t with Rather and Brokaw.
I am watching Rachel Maddow. i forgot that everyone but Arizona moved their clocks forward an hour. Surprisingly she has done an excellent job describing the President’s terrific job record.
Why does it have to be the last day of the campaign to make this real? She was doing a great job – bringing Rather is a VERY a bad idea
Then she fucked it up by bringing on that ass Dan Rather and both of them blabbing that PBO didn’t run on his “strong record” and if he loses tomorrow, that’s why. Fuckers!
She did lisa – what a horror of a person he is – ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

Well, she felt well enough to go to work after her nurse came and administered her antibiotic, and is on her way home now. Friday is the last day she’ll have to get it.
I hope she continues to improve LL. Take care of her (I know you are).
Done earlier, df …
Anyone who will be voting tomorrow and has not made up their mind should watch Rachel tonight. She is ticking off all of PBO’s accomplishments.
How extraordinary was that segment!!…Cos
twitter is going to break so hard tomorrow.
Yep. Hope TOD doesn’t “break”!
Rachel Maddow knocking it out of the park …WOW!
Speaking of Ohio, I’ve been wondering why Romney would be campaigning tomorrow in Dem-leaning areas like Cleveland and Pittsburgh.
Well some conservative guy tweeted this to Dave Weigel (h/t DKOS):
RT @kerpen: @daveweigel Cleveland and Pittsburgh?? Messing up traffic and logistics in D strongholds.
So just in case the OH SoS’s voter suppression tactics don’t work, the Romney camp will help to cause disarray. Wouldn’t surprise me in the least!
hey chips, since I changed my username, I’m not getting the little icon at the top that tell me I have replies to my comment. I don’t wanna get email notifications, but I was still getting the icon at top.
What can I do to fix it?
RMs first segment was extraordinary…..as one who follows the President daily…even i was impressed at .RM’s presentation of the President accomplishments……He is truly an extraordinary President….if you were not watching is it worth viewing when it becomes available…..
FORWARD>>>>>>>>>> WE CANNOT TURN BACK NOW!
Next segment is not so good – AH of a person on now – Rachel is arguing non stop with her guest – she should have left him in the green room
what is the green room?
It’s the place where actors wait to go on stage, or guest on shows wait their turn.

Now I know why I dislike this man… Dan Rather! She started so good, and then have the crazy man on.
So I made the right decision in watching MNF.
I changed the channel. Rather is a tool.
Can’t trust that bitch and her obsession with that antiquated troll.
Lisalovesobama, tell us how much do you dislike Rachel . . .
i do not always agree with everything she says…but her first segment was powerful….i have learned to the mute the sgement that i do not want to listen to…
