I love this at the end of the op-ed...

There is a 1980 landslide forming, and while the MSM is doing its best to pretend it isn't there and that the race is still close.

It isn't, and it won't be. The electoral cake is baked.

For some time, I've felt that the election was spring loaded....people just needed an excuse to drop Obama.

It looks like it might happen.

Romney has been slow to give them that excuse...but given the nature of the Obama campaign (which everyone credits as being masterful in "painting" Romney before he could define himself.....I recall when Obama said he'd be above that).....I know it's been hard.

And Romney does have his weaknesses.

But, Obama is just plain terrible.

If you nutters have all convinced yourselves that Mitt is a lock......why do you constantly need reassurance?
i agree. they seem so cocky that i am amazed their not having a party as they seem to think election is over.

Why should I ask them. They think Obama will win. But they don't spend all day looking for articles, blog posts and Internet polls to post. You nutters are not at all sure of a Romney win....mainly because most of you don't like the guy. So, you crave predictions that he will win.....it soothes you.

All one needs to do is look at the laundry list of dummies and crazy people who gave Mitt a fight in the primaries. He is seriously flawed. Confidence on your part is unattainable.

You lefties are a joke. We are finally getting rid of the man who set out to destroy the American dream and we are excited. No different than you guys when it was becoming obvious that your savior was going to first be elected.

4 years of this euro-socialistic nightmare is all that the majority of America could stand. We want American exceptionalism and dreams of success, not a nanny state where it pays best to not try.

I'm more excited about getting rid of Obama than I am Mitt. Mitt will be OK though, he understands that giving the power back to the people is the right direction. He knows how to balance a check book as well as Obama know how to spend other peoples (American tax payers) money.

He knows he just needs to create a surplus, protect our boarders and ideals - and let the American people take care of the rest. --- and we will - we are the best people in the world!

Does it really matter who is elected? It's all a sham!


"Civil disobedience. . . is not our problem. Our problem is civil obedience. Our problem is that numbers of people all over the world have obeyed the dictates of the leaders of their government and have gone to war, and millions have been killed because of this obedience. . Our problem is that people are obedient all over the world in the face of poverty and starvation and stupidity and war and cruelty. Our problem is that people are obedient while the jails are full of petty thieves, and all the while the grand thieves are running the country. That's our problem."

Howard Zinn


"During the Gore/Bush/Nader presidential election, while the entire nation was hypnotized by the spectacle, I had a vision. I saw the Titanic churning through the waters of the North Atlantic toward an iceberg looming in the distance, while the passengers and crew concentrated on a tennis game taking place on deck.

In our election-obsessed culture, everything else going on in the world - war, hunger, official brutality, sickness, the violence of everyday life for huge numbers of people - is swept out of the way while the media covers every volley of the candidates. Thus, the superficial crowds out the meaningful, and this is very useful for those who do not want citizens to look beyond the surface of the system. Hidden by the contest of the candidates are the real issues of race, class, war, and peace, which the public is not supposed to think about.
...
The ferocity of the contest for the presidency in recent elections conceals the agreement between both parties on fundamentals. The evidence for this statement lies in eight years of the Clinton-Gore administration, whose major legislative accomplishments - destroying welfare, imposing more punitive sentences on criminals, increasing Pentagon spending - were part of the Republican agenda.

The Demacrats and the Republicans do not dispute the continued corporate control of the economy. Neither party endorses free national healthcare, proposes extensive low-cost housing, demands a minimum income for all Americans, or supports a truly progressive income tax to diminish the huge gap between rich and poor. Both support the death penalty and growth of prisons. Both believe in a large military establishment, in land mines and nuclear weapons and the cruel use of sanctions against the people of Cuba.

Perhaps when, after the next election, the furor dies down over who really won the tennis match and we get over our anger at the referee's calls and the final, disputed score, we will finally break the hypnotic spell of the game and look around. We may then think about whether the ship is slowly going down and whether there are enough lifeboats and what we should do about all that."
