The Electoral Map Revisited

I have revised my electoral map over at the Washington Post, and attach it here so you may all ridicule it when it turns out to be wrong. I have Obama at 353, and McCain at 185. Some of the difficult calls were giving North Carolina to Obama, and giving Missouri to McCain. That very well may be flipped, or possibly McCain wins both. Obviously the Obama surge has turned blue to red, with Nevada, New Mexico, Colorado, Ohio, and the critical states of Virginia and Florida poised to switch to the Democrats. Does not look to healthy for McCain at this point.

    Your Honor,

    That map displays what could be a chilling event, the election of Obama the “Socialist”.

    Overnight we learned what it will be like under a Obama regime….er administration.

    Obama: 2001 recording of “Himself” saying how the Supreme Court has not done enough to redistribute the wealth, a long held feeling of his.

    Joe the plumber is correct.

    Obama saying how he would use “compassion” as a quality a nominee would need to be considered. The Constitution will be rewritten to a far left vision.

    Joe Biden did not like a question from a Florida anchor so a TV station is verboten for further interviews. WE HAVE SEEN THE FIRST APPLICATION OF THE “FAIRNESS DOCTRINE”; CENSORSHIP IS ALIVE AND WELL AND IS THE FUTURE.

    The fun time is back

    Have a good day comrade mayor.

    obama is a socialist…and elvis is alive, alligators are in the sewers, ad there are aliens at area 51 – good god people will believe anything – have you heard he’s actually not american and a muslim? that’s the big lie i find most hysterical.

    those who don’t learn from history are condemned to repeat it, but what we are experiencing is flash forwarding. after 8 years of dick cheyney and the neocons taking a hammer and tongs to the us constitution we are reliving the gilded age, the destruction of the middle class and the vacuuming of capital from our economy has made the chasm between the ultra rich and the unwashed masses as wide as ever. In light of all our other crises, ‘redistribution of wealth’ is a moderate goal.

    i think states like Colorado where voter suppression has been most active are still up for grabs. of all the countries in the world, the US is the one most hostile to it’s own voters.

    Jules:

    You also may be interested in knowing that in these United States the constitution is very specific about saying that a candidate for the Presidency MUST BE A BORN CITIZEN OF THESE UNITED STATES. I was under the impression that because Obama’s mother was a Us.S. Citizen than any issue from her would be automatically considered U.S. Citizens. I have recently been made aware that is not true. If a female U.S. Citizen gives birth outside the country AND SHE WANTS HER CHILD TO BE CONSIDERED A US. CITIZEN she must file certain paperwork when she returns to the U.S. and their is a limited amount of time in which this must be done. This does not apply to woman who give birth in other countries due to military service, either theirs or their husbands or father’s. In the case of Barack Obama. He was born in Kenya, and because his father wanted it he was registered as a CITIZEN OF KENYA. There is a former New York Times reporter continuing to investigate this. In the meantime Senator Obama has NOT PRODUCED a valid birth certificate at all. I cannot help but wonder why? If all of this is true than Senator Obama is not even eligible to run for the Presidency. His nomination by the DNC should be nulified and Hillary Clinton should take her rightful place as the Democratice Nominee.

    Jules, Summer, you both do a FINE job passing along the latest swift boat attack attempts.

    Face it, your candidate and his five-year, four college attack-dog tagalong VP nominee with a BS in Journalism are both LOSERS! Have you both no humility?!

    And I’m not understanding what the judge ruled on this. He said the plaintiff had no ‘standing’. What does that mean? He didn’t rule on the case presented. I’m thinking the judge just didn’t want to touch this one, he figured let a higher court decide, it was above his pay-grade.

    I initially thought that this birth-certificate stuff was the work of ultra right-wing cranks, now I’m not so sure.

    I think it’s safe to say that Hillary was just bulldozed. She should be the rightful nominee, but the Democrat Thugs would have none of it.

    Fellow Bloggers,

    I will not get into these rumors or speculation about Obama’s pedigree.

    I fear him as a liberal slipping further to the Socialist left.

    I fear the influence of his Chicago friends many of whom you would not want your children to hang out with.

    I fear the triumvirate of Obama, Pelosi and Reid.

    From this group and a super Democratic majority you can expect redistribution of taxes, fairness doctrine to gag opinion they hate, union check card to remove the right of secret ballet, and I bet they will plug up the drilling leases.

    The other issue pales in comparison. It will be worse than Massachusetts.

    Summer: Can we stop with the birth certificate crap already? There have been numerous court rulings over the last 200 years that clearly dictate that any child born of an American mother, no matter where they are born, is automatically considered an American citizen if their mother is an American citizen. The paperwork is irrelevant.
    Not that it matters, since Obama was born in Hawaii. There is ZERO evidence to refute this, although some conspiracy nuts would have people believe otherwise.
    And don’t you think the Republicans would’ve already uncovered any birth problems?

    Jules: As for Biden, the question wasn’t just a question, it was a blatant attack; and calling Obama a Marxist is pretty rich considering what the current administration has just done with our money. Also, they have the right to censor anything they choose, since they are essentially giving interviews as private citizens (whether or not they should be running while being in office is a different matter), and it is up to private citizens to decide to vote for them based on this. If they censor stuff while being in government, that will just make them like the current administration.
    And how come Palin doesn’t have press conferences?

    More importantly, these two are who we have to choose from for President? This is the best this country can do?

    Even if Obama was born in Kenya by two Kenyan parents, he is eligible to run for president. My 8 year old can run for president. They just can’t be president.

    I am always taken aback when I hear non-con rubbish spouting out of blue state mouths. Your paranoia is the product of years of neo-con brainwashing. You have been convinced that liberal is a dirty word and democrat means socialist. this everyman for himself philosophy has destroyed the very fabric of our society. I’m a johnsonian democrat a believer in the great society, helping the impoverished and giving the unwealthy opportunities to excel is hardly socialism. The country can’t survive another 4 years of devouring itself, and the thought of Palin in the oval office scares me right down to my socks. I have never seen a more ignorant woman on the national stage. Clare Booth Luce and Bella Abzug are rolling in their graves.

    Just read the new Pat Buchanan column. This is how he ends it:

    “What does the triumvirate of Obama-Pelosi-Reid offer?

    Rep. Barney Frank is calling for new tax hikes on the most successful and a 25 percent across-the-board slash in national defense. Sen. John Kerry is talking up new and massive federal spending, a la FDR’s New Deal. Specifically, we can almost surely expect:

    — Swift amnesty for 12 million to 20 million illegal aliens and a drive to make them citizens and register them, as in the Bill Clinton years. This will mean that Nevada, Colorado, New Mexico and Arizona will soon move out of reach for GOP presidential candidates, as has California.

    — Border security will go on the backburner, and America will have a virtual open border with a Mexico of 110 million.

    — Taxes will be raised on the top 5 percent of wage-earners, who now carry 60 percent of the U.S. income tax burden, and tens of millions of checks will be sent out to the 40 percent of wage-earners who pay no federal income tax. Like the man said, redistribute the wealth, spread it around.

    — Social Security taxes will be raised on the most successful among us, and capital gains taxes will be raised from 15 percent to 20 percent. The Bush tax cuts will be repealed, and death taxes reimposed.

    — Two or three more liberal activists of the Ruth Bader Ginsberg-John Paul Stevens stripe will be named to the Supreme Court. U.S. district and appellate courts will be stacked with “progressives.”

    — Special protections for homosexuals will be written into all civil rights laws, and gays and lesbians in the military will be invited to come out of the closet. “Don’t ask, don’t tell” will be dead.

    — The homosexual marriages that state judges have forced California, Massachusetts and Connecticut to recognize, an Obama Congress or Obama court will require all 50 states to recognize.

    — A “Freedom of Choice Act” nullifying all state restrictions on abortions will be enacted. America will become the most pro-abortion nation on earth.

    — Affirmative action — hiring and promotions based on race, sex and sexual orientation until specified quotas are reached — will be rigorously enforced throughout the U.S. government and private sector.

    — Universal health insurance will be enacted, covering legal and illegal immigrants, providing another powerful magnet for the world to come to America, if necessary by breaching her borders.

    — A federal bailout of states and municipalities to keep state and local governments spending up could come in December or early next year.

    — The first trillion-dollar deficit will be run in the first year of an Obama presidency. It will be the first of many.

    Welcome to Obamaland!”

    What an extremist that Buchanan is! So mean-spirited, and did I detect some racism as well?!

    People,

    I am no fan of Buchanan, but a lot of what he says is true.

    A week from tomorrow we will know who our next president will be and that will be that.

    I presume the liberals among you will get what you want. The conservative won’t.

    As I told the mayor, it’s your time. Enjoy everyone.

    If Obama wins we can discuss his administration as it goes along.

    Jgodsey,

    Collectively all citizens of a free democracy own the assets of the government. Unlike Massachusetts, for instance, Sarah Palin chose to share the profits of the oil revenues. She did NOT have to do that. She neogiated with the oil companies for the fees. They took the deal and are doing the work. If it was bad business they would not have signed the contract.

    Being a citizen of Massachusetts I can understand at you confusion. Deval promised us a cut in my real estate taxes.

    Have anyone out there got their real estate cut from Deval?

    Hendrik Hertzberg is an east coast journalist. He doesn’t know squat, jgodsey, consequently you know as much.

It is good to have the teacher lady back, but I have to tell you that at least for today people are worried about their jobs, their pensions, and paying for heat this winter. So Rev. Wright, and Bill Ayers, have not dented Obama because after eight years of total incompetence by the Bush Administration folks are ready to make the change. And I do not believe you will see the Rev. Wright at the Obama inaugural. Somewhere I sense that the teach has some well hidden sympathies for Democrats, even if she is loath to admit it.

    Jules (The Conquerer I assume) 😉 ,

    I have an idea where you are coming up with the inference behind the numbers you cite, but because admittedly, I don’t watch anywhere near as much foxsnooze, I can’t be quite sure….

    However, my objective perspective (based on what they are saying below) is that they are using arbitrary numbers in the example you cite, but not deviating from their original proposal…

    “The Obama campaign tells First Read that this is how Obama’s plan breaks down: People making less than $250,000 will not see their taxes increase, and people making less than $200,000 will receive some type of tax cut. And all of this is essentially reflected in the Tax Policy Center stats below. ”

    Joe, the mouth Biden, everyone earning below 150,0000…..

    Obamao 95% will get tax break, or everyone who pays no taxes(is that you, Joe?) will get a check.
