    Ryan says Obama won ‘fair and square’ – CNN Political Ticker - CNN.com Blogs

    I suppose Mister Ryan was basing his hope on Karl Rove's numbers? He may be shocked less often if he tuned into something other than FOX news.

    Are you attempting to make some point or are you simply taking up space?

    I am finding the certainty high level republicans had in an Ohio win to be somewhat troubling. Did Anonymous indeed thwart a Rovian fix?

    they must have believed their own concoction that Romney was the one who (actually) saved the auto industry and Obama was the one responsible for Chrysler jobs going to China ... and thought Ohio voters would believe them rather than the truth.

    After Dems tried to steal the Walker recall it was easy to see they were going to steal Ohio

    Didn't help that they were skewing--er, "unskewing"--their own internal polls to conform to their fantasies.

    I can see how that would lead to some surprises on election day.

    Yup, the Rove meltdown was priceless...Maybe the big Super PAC funders will think twice before handing over their Millions to Karl in the future. Big Bucks up in Smoke...

    When we go through this again in 2016 there should be no disagreement that the state polls are the polls to watch along with Nate Silver’s analysis.
