    Election 2012: North Carolina President - Rasmussen Reports™

    Yeah yeah. It's still early. I know. I even agree. But I am SO fucking sick and tired of the lefty political pundits here (and elsewhere) telling us all so confidently that Romney's uphill battle is insurmountable.

    It really isn't.

    Watch and see what happens to Romney. Remember when McCain led in 2008?

    Watch and learn.

    You have a right to react defensively as you just did.

    You are one of those wind-up bullshit artists I was speaking of.

    You have zero credibility on this topic.

    Watch and learn. That involves shutting your cavernous mouth and opening your ears for a change of pace.

    I think any poll taken before the first debate is crap.

    For the most part, I agree. But when the butt rashes like Salt Peter and his liberal Democrat brothers and sisters constantly "assure" all the rest of us that the "race" is already effectively "over," I think the current mood (as reflected with some accuracy) in a present day poll MIGHT be instructive.

    2012 Presidential Election Interactive Map and History of the Electoral College

    CLick on NC on the interactive map of present day electoral count (a map that presupposes the races state by state come out as indicated): When it turns RED, the race has tightened up NICELY.

    And FLA is always dicey, but the President happens to suck dick at his job. SO if FLA goes red, too, (try it) the race is no longer such a fucking "gimmee" for the incumbent.

    In 2008, this country had suffered 8 years of Bush.... no one - other than the deluded - ever thought McCain was gonna win. This time is different.... it's taken Obama half the time to annoy twice as many people.

    The reason the GOP nominated McCain is because the party had already written off 4 years to the Democrats.

    The media would like you to believe NC is a battleground state, just to add some drama. They have some hipster musicians working on "Battleground State" intro theme music as we speak.

    Lots of synthesized horns and drums and whoosing sounds.

    Your brains are being marinated in yellow journalism.

    I'm not defensive. I'm just stating the facts. McCain led and the race was considered close at one point.

    I'm a "bullshit artist" for stating that Obama will win? Are you a bullshit artist for saying Romney will win?
