#1 Fuck no, it's not over til it's over. Worse than the media, trying to "win" the guessing game by being the first to "predict" the outcome.

#2 Show me a convincing lead in Ohio and Virginia and I buy it. Not before.

#3 Mitt's set to win! No need for you republicans to vote anymore. Stay home and watch TV!
I'm not buying it.

#6 A little advice from the trainers. When you take an objective you keep pushing beyond it to prevent the opponent from regrouping and counter-attacking.

#7 I remember my high school gym coach pounding into us that you run THROUGH the tape, not TO it. Same principle.

#8 Romney is running hard until the end.

#9 Everything said here about pushing through the end is doubly true for the down ticket races. Getting Mitt over the finish line won't be nearly as much fun as taking back the Senate, padding the House majority with real conservatives and landing 33 governorships.
But to make that happen everyone needs to give a maximum effort, even in places where the presidential election is not competitive.

#10 We need to win as big as possible. O is not going to take losing lightly. He and his minions are likely to contest anything he can construe as close. He will blame any loss of votes on Sandy inhibiting early voter opportunities creating a lack of fairness or any other ridiculous excuse he can think of. And that's just immediately after the election. If O loses we'll probably still need a crowbar to get him and his significant other out of the WH in January. All those exec orders that sound like martial law scare me.

#11 I'm with you hogswife. This thing could turn quite ugly. I don't trust any of them.

#12 We're set to hit the debt ceiing again at the end of Dec., during the lame duck session. Failure to raise it (by passing both houses of Congress and signed by the pres) will result in default and global finanical meltdown. I wonder if Ogabe, having lost the election, would see any reason not to punish America for rejecting him.
