    When Will We Know? An Ouotright win, or another lugubrious recount battle?





    As Americans head to the polls, it is almost a foregone conclusion that the presidential election results will come down to challenges and recounts. Various experts have been predicting as much for weeks. Even the most optimistic polls are not far outside the margin of error especially in the so-called "battle ground" states, Ohio being the poster boy for that trite and stale phrase.


    As all eyes shift to Ohio today in the 2012 presidential election, the Buckeye State is bracing itself for a possible recount in the event of a close voter tally-a process that could take the election into next month.
    Ohio has been the top contested of the swing states between President Barack Obama and GOP candidate Mitt Romney, with its 18 Electoral votes putting whoever wins it in solid position to win the White House.
    Should Obama win the state, most scenarios would project him to need only one or two more swing states to secure reelection. For Romney, the state is also as critical, as no Republican presidential candidate has ever won the White House without Ohio.

    With the precedent set by the Al Gore, the first presidential candidate to seek a court ruling, is there any doubt that the courts will become involved? And with that, with so many reports on both sides of voter tampering, the failure to get ballots to servicemen overseas, reports of illegal aliens being allowed to vote, especially in battleground states and suspected cases of voter intimidation, those court challengers may take weeks, not months. It was well past Thanksgiving when the results of 2004 were final, even though many could or would not accept that finality.

    So the question becomes, whether Americans will know who is their president before Christmnas.

    Fear, old chum, I think sincerely that it's going to be a blowout for Mitt. There is a nagging underlying fear of fraud, but not enough to fully dampen my outlook.

    I know what I saw when the wife and I voted at 6:30AM today, and that tells me Virginia at least is going for Mitt.

    Goin to a bar tonight that has a bunch of Americans in it. Should they be Obamniacs I will thoroughly enjoy shoving reality into their fecal faces. Should they be Romneyites....just a party.
    The time for just talk is done. Active recruiting of friends, relatives, co-workers and congregations is now critical. Be the Indy Voter making the difference. 7,501 groups formed. 3.5 million FB. Take back your schools, communities and country.http://www.freedomworks.org/

    Yet social and economic alchemists on the progressive left press on, arrogantly believing they, despite overwhelming historical and real time evidence to the contrary..can turn collectivist lead into utopian gold - Webrockk

    It all depends on how much cheating the republican party did

    Agreed, but because I disagree with your subsequent post. I think Obama's winning big.

    More of a gut feeling than anything else at this point. Hope I'm wrong.

    I avoided most radio babble today but did hear a good bit of Rush. Play this little game, Cap-

    Do you think more voters will come out for Romney, than came out for McCain in '08?

    Do you think as many voters will come out for Obama this year, versus '08?

    Rush has a real knack to cut through the shit and hit the target bullseye. I don't see how one can answer those questions and think other than a huge Mitt victory.

    I really don't know, Larry - that's the issue. I don't feel confident that I have a bead on what to expect.

    I hear a lot of stuff from a lot of sources with few of them I feel are wholly or mostly credible. That's what makes me lack confidence in estimating, but taking bits and pieces of stuff that I've absorbed, my gut says Obama 4 more.

    Again, hope my gut fails me - but it doesn't often.
