@ehBeth,
I really get a kick out of the responses from people who seem to think that dissing Texas scores a point or two on me.

Yes, I live here and am happy to do so (especially if the Obama Re-Election Apocolypse materializes), but I wasn't born here, and have only lived here for 8 years. No native Texan would ever consider me one of them.

Liberals see Texas as a land of ignorant, barely sane extremists. It's the sort of prejudiced generalization they would condemn under most other curcumstances, but hey, since they are righteousness personified, it must be OK.

Most Texans don't care what Liberals think about them (Except of course the few self-loathing Liberal Texans) and in fact take their disdain as a badge of honor. Texans have nothing even approaching an inferiority complex.

This isn't the land of milk and honey but it's a damned sight better place to live than most of the "Blue States."

So dig away. I'm not a Texan and so don't care and if I was a Texan I wouldn't care.

@cicerone imposter,
A State Senator (GOP) stated that PA, with the new voter ID requirement, could be put into the Romney column.

All the GOP has succeeded in doing is pissing everybody off who isnt so deeply GOP partisan. Even Judge Castille said that this whole thing wasnt very transparent.
During the "discovery" period on this latest round of the suit, it was discloswed that Pa was already spending over 10 million$ on trying to implement this law without clear direction and only a bit of cynicism.

We will ultimately do the right thing only after having exhausted all other options.

@ehBeth,
The interesting thing is that voters must already have their signatures compared to a sig book that only the poll workers have. (After the election anyone can look at these sigs and protest if they so desire)
Also, A voter must already carry a group of ids that do include anything with a photo (like a drivers license).

This has all been the teapot tempest again disguised as some something for the puiblic good that only the GOP is in charge of.

SO damn funny really, why not just make Romney a more electable candidate, dont try to cheat

@Finn dAbuzz,
Is it not strange that most of the people who Romney was talking about as being depended on the government in one way or another live in red states and vote for the GOP?

@Finn dAbuzz,
Again, indiscovery, the defense had produced 8 accounts of voter fraud IN THE LAST 10 YEARS in Pa. Of these 8, NONE were instances of fake idenetity to vote. There were several instances of fraud in the initial registration and there were several fraud cases in ABSENTEE BALLOTS (Everyone[even the defense] agreed that, if ya want to throw an election for Romney, you should reqally fake absentee ballots cause you dont have to fake an id one vote at a time)

nah

it didn't work like that

I googled "dead voters" + "u. s.", then selected the news tab

the top 10 or 15 links were to the whole dead Texas voters thing that's going on - it's not in the news anywhere else (or wasn't last night)

@farmerman,
Aren't most absentee ballots in the U.S. related to the military?

@ehBeth,
Probably, but getting an absentee ballot is easy for any number of schedule reasons (work conflicts, hospital; satys, home bound, etc)

Gov Corbett has hinted that it could be "not such a great strategy" to appeal Simpson's decision.

Ah, Texas, number one in illiteracy, number 50 in percentage of kids graduating high school, worst in the country in total toxic pollutants released, subsidized by the blue states (like just about all the red states, Texas gets more money back from taxes than it pays, and we blue staters are getting just a little sick of their whining), and it's got Rick Perry. There's a real success story for ya (Warning: sarcasm alert). No wonder Finn loves it.

@cicerone imposter,
The GOP wont give up trying to restrict and disenfranchise, Theyve been taking out ads that state emphatically that every voter will need ID. They dont say what kind of id, They know that the photo id is dead but they want to confuse the issue so much that thy hope many older folks who dont hold a photo id will jut stay home.

@farmerman,
How can conservatives with any conscience allow their party to disenfranchise voters their right to vote? Are they that desperate to take leave of their ethics, and the protection of all Americans?

I wonder what the historians will say about this election? That's if this country survives this trashing of our Constitution.

The idea that Romney as a businessman can create 12 million jobs isn't even the issue, because it's a foregone conclusion he can't. He's offshored more jobs than he's saved in this country, and have invested in Chinese companies that pays their employees pennies on the dollar. They continue to lie to themselves for the sake of one election in the history of this country. They'd rather destroy it than have President Obama serve another term. The reason?

He's black, or is it because he's not an "American," but a Kenyan.

Disgusting!

@cicerone imposter,
well, the GOP has found a means that, once you think about it, is equally a"Campaign trick" as are dirty trick ads(remember the Swift Boat lies ?)
The hell of it (at least in Pa) noone on the GOP denies these tricks, they embrace it and claim that such dirty dealing will help assure Romney a win in Pa. I wonder what the other states have going.

Ive found that, in politics, th one that brigs up an issue is usually guilty of the underlying act.

@cicerone imposter,
Interesting.

Absentee voting is where most voter fraud occurs in the U.S. (according to an interview I listed to last night).

Americans need to take a good look at their absentee voting system. Something's whack-a-doodle with it.

@ehBeth,
absentee ballots can be manipulated in great gobs, unlike the silly notion that the GOP had that individual old folks could have any effect on an election even if their assertion were true.
