    I'm honesty not sure why so many on both the left and the right are predicting a landslide victory for their candidate, since none of the polls show any real lead by either candidate.

    So, I was just wondering if this is standard bluster(same thing happened in 08) or people honestly think there will be a huge victory for their man.

    Did you think the polls were misleading?

    "I said Palin/McCain would have won"

    What a courageous admission. Really, hats off for being honest and self effacing.

    I'll admit I preferred Obama as a person, but realized that, being a Democrat, no change could be expected.

    For once at least, I was correct.

    Did you know I posted 4 years ago? I DESPISED Juan McCain! He was a bigger scumbag that Dubya. I was hoping McCain would drop out prior to the election. He was the perfect Candidate the Democrats could run against Obama

    You are on it.
    Most of the ones now predicting a Romney/Ryan win predicted a McCain/Pallin win.

    I thought the election would be close, with McCain winning by a few electoral votes.

    I could not imagine that this country would elect a man with no experience, no resume, and no clue. He was so full of shit- "Hope and Change"?? It was a mantra for the moronic. It was preposterous that such a nincompoop could ever be elected to the highest office in the land....I was wrong.

    So, here we are 3.5 year later and my worst fears are realized: We have a massive national debt that's grown by 50% in 3 short years, permanently high unemployment (the new normal under Obama), 100 million on welfare or food stamps, and a new massive heath care entitlement to boot....it's been an amazing few years.

    Bottom line - Obama is a clueless dilettante that is WAY over his head.....He has delusions of grandeur and massively inflated sense of his own worth.

    We have a chance to staunch the bleeding in November.....I hope you idiots make the right decision this time...:lol:

    I liked McCain, and would have voted for him had he picked a better running mate and run a half way decent campagin. This go around, I'm voting Johnson. I don't know what prompted the GOP to pick Romney but I'd rather 4 years of Obama than 8 of Romney.

    However, my prediction for this election is, unless something major happens, it could go either way, with the victor barely squeaking by.
