Wild speculation and rumors for fun

    Here we take guesses and shoot off early information on the elections, current exit polls has Obama up 7% in Ohio with voting closed. If accurate it's probably all over Romney winning without Ohio is tough but it seems pretty hard to believe.

      The latest I saw Obama is leading in Florida... with only 33% of the vote in.

          And they are predicting he will win Ohio based on early results... but it's still early so I'm not taking anything at face value.

        Susan, Florida's number are changing so fast it's making my head spin.  Literally, Obama will be ahead at one point, and two minutes later, Romney's in the lead.  It's crazy.

          What States would that be??  Not to mention, it is clearly not the m ajority of the States.  As is usual, it is the heavily populated coastal cities voting Dem -  and I have to think, just what choice do they have?  Their lives depend on government assistance.  Just look at the hurricane -- nobody gave a damn about being out of power for 3 weeks for the rural folks in TX and LA -- but Christie is weeping over it -- what weak kneed losers you are all....... 

          Secession of Middle America that acually cooks dinner, knows how to cook collard greens and pork roast, knows how to make a pot of beans to feed their family for a week, really appeals to me tonight.............. not the folks who think they are owed food stamps to eat high on the hog, or on the oysters, or the shrimp, or whatever they want from a big Walmart -- not those who think they should get some cash in their hand so they can eat at McDonald's regularly -- that is what is wrong with America - those who think they should have it without working for it -- may you fit in all your blue jeans over the next decade.............

                From an economic perspective almost all the states are better off, there a re a few deep red states that have stayed about the same but generally all over things are better than unemployment rising by 1% monthly and Massive negative GDP growth that existed when Obama took power.

                And my hometown was once hit by a straightline wind storm. Power was out for days, trees literally toppled through roofs and roads were not passable.

                I know what its like to help your neighbors clear trees, bring them food because everything in their fridge was spoiled etc. etc.

                BTW

                Upstate NY might as well not exist to most politicians in this state. NYC gets so much money and land rights in the upstate that its not even funny.

                BTW2

                Upstate NY is highly Republican!

                    Its more about conservatives trying to label the president as a socialist who was born in Kenya.

                    Its about conservatives apparently having no problem with leaders saying that the definition of rape is up to interpretation and that pregnancy from rape should be carried to term.

                    I know you have your views, and that is fine. However, I would submit that reasonable people are more than welcome to speak their mind regardless of their political leanings.

      lol Or perhaps maybe he'll start working with Congress because he wants his legacy to be one of success? Name one thing he's offered to the GOP that even smelled of compromise.

      The man won the popular vote by 1/10th of a percent. Hardly a vote of confidence of the American people, nor a mandate. Congressional make-up remained the same with the GOP actually holding a larger majority in the House. Again, hardly yells confidence or mandate.

        General vote is swinging further blue by the minute as California, Hawaii and Washington are counted, it's expected to end up as high as 3-4%

        Democrats gained more Senate seats and a Massive electoral college lead by more than a third more votes (and the electoral college is what decides elections)  it's a strong win, much stronger than both of Bush's for example.

        Given that the GOP had everything going for them and still manged to lose hard it's pretty obvious who needs to adapt.

          Hi Josak,
          Don't get me wrong, I wasn't implying the election wasn't a fair one at all. The Electoral College is what determines the President, and it is what it is. Even at 4%, (going the high end) that is hardly a mandate. If you recall, no one, well, okay I wasn't here at Hub Pages then, but no one I talked to believed George Bush had received any type of mandate with his re-election.
          What concerns me is the automatic cuts and tax hikes looming around the bend. They need to be dealt with, and quickly, for the good of all Americans. Will the President actually reach out as he promised? Or will it just be more of the same old, "you have to do everything my way". To which the GOP will not buckle, (at least, I hope they don't because not all of the President's ideas are good ones) and then what?
