Screwups - always

Stolen no - not in the terms the Dems use.

Obama won it - a few hundred/thousand votes are not going to have an impact anywhere.

More than one out of every five registered Ohio voters is probably ineligible to vote.

Well looks like I was right after all about Ohio!

Add to that the odds of this have to be astronomical;

Obama Won Dozens of Cleveland Districts with 100% of the Vote

I would say yes at the very least Ohio was stolen!

Unless the approximately 3 million vote margin for Obama in the popular vote is all or mostly voter fraud (a laughable claim, at best), it's pretty clear that Obama won this fair and square.

Oh lord, for a party that screams personal responsibility from the rafters all the damned time they sure do have a tough time accepting it for themselves. And people wonder why I left the Republican party....

lol what's funny is the same thread would be made about how it was stolen from Obama and the articles would be the nearly the same. Yet the posters saying "get over it" would be the ones yelling the loudest.

shit happens. there was not enough fuck ups to change the outcome anyway. Obama won by a huge margin. though we do need to get the number of "fuckups" down..a lot.

It could've gone either way.

Anyway, the tiny margin of victory/loss is a good indicator at how similar they are... when you have two different candidates and one has popular views while the other doesn't, then one will significantly outperform the other. See Harding v. Cox and Jefferson v Adams (1800).

FDR got his best victory margin the time people didn't realize he was a Republican in Democrat clothing.

Is it really true? I keep hearing about all this voter fraud and shit yet everytime you go look for the facts on this it is proven to be a miniscule problem. So miniscule that most places don't even concern themselves with it. I read that there were something like 12 cases of voter fraud in the past decade or so. If there were 12 murders in the past decade we would not even need police...lol

the problem with voter fraud is that there is scant evidence unless one is caught.

With a murder; most times there is the evidence even though the perp is not caught.

The only link I watched was "Connecticut Dem jokes about corruption" but if that is what the OP considers evidence, please for the sake of humanity stay away from anything that involves rational thought and/or judgment.

Bridgeport is the biggest city in CT and is heavily democratic. In the 2008 election there was quite a scandal as they ran out of ballots mid-day, causing a substantial delay. They ran out of ballots because they cost $1.00+ each, are paid for by the local municipality and are ordered by local officials, ie the locals went too cheap. If anything this 2008 blunder hurt the dems.

Not even a scintilla of proof of corruption found. BTW Chris Murphy beat the $100M woman Linda McMahon by 12% statewide-a rather crushing defeat.

My theory is it was the aliens in orbit manipulating everything from the beginning. They're the ones behind 9/11 because they wanted to establish the TSA and Homeland Security so they could continue their anal probe x-per-e-ments. Obamacare is their way of going national with their anal probes and, so, they had to make sure he won the election.

By the way, can you guess which politicians have been subjected to the alien anal probe mind control devices?
