It sounds like Sandy is making a huge mess in the NorthEast, blue states. Floodings will take awhile to receed. Will all this harvoc slow down Dems voting next Tues ?

"Too much to clean up. He'd lose any way so I'll just stay home!"

Paves the way for a landslide. God is with US.

So, what, New York is going to go for Romney?? I don't think so. Would be glorious if it happened though! Remember 1984?

I think it will be a wash as far as the damage slowing both, but I am worried about Obama turning it into a "hero" moment. He is sure to make political hay out of it.

That was a glorious year. OH was 23, now 18. FL was 21 now 29. Much have changed... FL is far more important than it has ever been. PA lost ground, too.

i remember it was always the rule. dems stay home in the rain.
Just lazy welfare cheats. Stats bore it out too.

Reps will walk over broken glass in bare feet.

Let it rain.

And it is starting to look like a repeat in 2012. :cool:

Hurricane Sandy has missed New England, so far.

"Evil" is a term derived from religious belief

how much the EC has changed due to population shifts. Look at TX and CA. NY has lost some EVs. So has MA and CT.

If it's close, watch for dem governors to try to keep their polls open an extra day or two. This whole Sandy deals certainly give them a built in excuse. I think this freezes the polls in place which will be good for Romney.

Lots of people from the north moved to FL in the housing boom, registered here to vote.

When housing went Kaboom, they are no longer here. Yet, by census, FL has 29. It would go down next census. However, with the recent lost in population, a vote in FL may worth 1.5 votes from another state, if you know what I mean.

Your idea that God caused, or is using, the hurricane to help Romney win would be funny if it wasn't so sad.

...
and God sent you.

I doubt it.

You know, that is as crazy as your op. You are saying God caused me to be atheist, and presumably burn in hell forever, just to make you laugh.

So yeah, religion is evil, in part because it caused you to say something evil.

Religion is evil.

People are evil. Or at least some of them are. Religion is just a belief system. So is politics.

Don't forget, atheism is a religion too. :tongueout:

It can be evil too. Just look what the commies did with it. What's the death toll on that one?

Greater Philadelphia is greatly impacted and Pennsylvania is really close. Given the higher Dumocratic turnout in the urban areas, I think this could definitely help Romney.

Atheism is a religion now? Haven't we gone over this, I know bible thumpers are pretty slow.

Is bald a hair color? Is not collecting postage stamps a hobby? Atheism is not a religion.

I think it could go either way.

While some of the dems in the big cities may not vote, the press is really playing up that Obama has quit campaigning to run the disaster relief and Romney is still campaigning. That could play out poorly for Romney.

He's just messing with me.

Let it go. There is a 2000+ post thread in GTRI, and he hijacked probably 10 other threads there before (I assume being told to) stop.

Voter fraud is so common in the Dem party. :upeyes:

It is awash (so to speak). It could help or hurt the GOP. I see a decrease of voters of both parties and throw in voter fraud and we are back to where we started. Mitt needs to win but so do key GOP senate races.

What did Ellen Barkin say about a certain group being washed out to sea?? I am glad O is on top of things unlike Benghazi.

So true. Romney won't be able to do much without a GOP HR and Senate.

One problem is people look at states like NJ, NY, and CT and assume that everyone, or a large portion of the state is liberal. Far from it. Usually what tips these states (and most other liberal states) is the two or three big liberal cities. For example during the 2010 election in CT, this state was actually going Red before the votes from New Haven, Bridgeport and Hartford were counted. Each of those cities had 15,000+ more votes for Democrats than Republicans so in spite of most of the state being red, we continued our hard left blue turn.

I suspect that if liberal states apportioned their electoral college votes based on the total number of counties/cities/towns that went for one party rather than the popular vote within the state, the national electoral map would be quite different.

There will be voters like myself who will crawl over broken glass to vote against Progressive/Marxist/Communist/Socialist candidates come next Tuesday.

The storm will definitely make it harder for the dems to troll their vans full of smokes and ripple. You can get 10-20 sterno bums in those things who'll do anything asked for a pack of smokes and some Boones-Farm; (the traditional democrat base). The blacks have already bought into the plantation slavery being sold by the dems so the party doesn't have to work as hard to fool them.

A member of my church works for the local power company here in Florida. He, and a few others from the local office, got sent to NY to help out. He got there. Cold and Wet. Muddy. Called back to his wife saying the folks up there are angry, very angry.

I think this anger will show up in the Nov-6th poll.

They don't have but cell phones to be polled right now.
