I was in VA this weekend, Ging O the V, in a county that ended up going 55-43 for Romney. But of the 20k that voted for Obama, I guarantee 70-80% of them had someone knock on their door to remind them where to vote or provide a ride to the polling place. The level of organization that the Obama campaign was, honestly, shocking to me. There were 100s of us, white, black, old, young, knocking on houses that had been microtargeted for their soft support or undecidedness. And even though, I wasn't thrilled with everything he's done, I was inspired to see so many people of different stripes working their ass off. And it payed off! I couldn't be happier. Science won in so many places--in some ways I'm happier for Nate Silver than Obama--and we're moving towards a more equal society re. marriage. Definitely celebrating today

We're number one! We're number one! I've been buoyed by having the least number of points scored against me. But I'm number one in points so boomBOOMboom.

200k without power in DC. Lots of downed trees, some flooding in the area, but we're mostly fine! Fun fact, I watched the news the whole day yesterday, and counted the political ads: 126. I almost threw my TV out of the window, but thought better of it.

Today, I thought seriously about pursuing a completely different career and struggled (and failed) to find a pumpkin mask for my halloween costume (the pumpkin dance guy). Other than that, feeling pretty good, and enjoying reading all these recaps.

hotspur, Boss is my favorite book of all time. You have no idea how happy I am that you are reading it. I love the chapter where Royko gives the seminal description of a neighborhood.

I'm in the middle of Virginia for the next few days and have had little internet access. I tried to go to vgum to see what I missed and I just saw a dude hitting a bar with his pipe wang. So nothing has changed?

I would encourage you to not vote for Jill Stein, because if Obama loses in the same way Gore did (via Nader) I will be denied healthcare. thanks!

I've also heard a couple of my friends able to quit using the ecigarette. It's too bad they're not marketed towards helping people quit, instead of helping people smoke when they can't smoke in public places. I guess not surprising here because blu is owned by a cigarette company.

Thanks pcbowen. And I always appreciate your contributions to threads! Very well thought out and rational. Here is a good article on the notion that Obama has not expanded eligibility for Medicaid from an albeit partisan dude Ezra Klein. Still presents the facts well: As far as the "lies" I was referring to: Romney said half of the green companies the government invested in have gone out of business. Only three have. The others have created some jobs, and a lot of good research base. Whether the private sector could have done better is up to debate, still a lie! The other one I mentioned are preexisting conditions. Romney said preexisting conditions are covered under his plan. This one is more difficult because he hasn't specified, but from what his advisers have said, under his plan, people who are continuously insured (and lose coverage) can not be discriminated against. People who are now uninsured can be discriminated against. As far as the cuts to Medicare, it's important to distinguish between regular Medicare and Medicare Advantage. I think 80% of seniors have regular Medicare. The cuts came to Medicare Advantage, and yes they are cuts. I'm not debating that and I don't think it's a lie. But the administration made the determination that the cuts will not lower benefits, and not have a dramatic effect on care. This is certainly up for debate, and Romney brought it to the forefront. Certainly something needs to be done about Medicare, and I look forward to hearing more from both candidates. Again, both sides have issues. I think the demonizing of Bain Capital and Tax returns is pretty useless on the left, and the demonizing of immigrants and other stigmatized groups is pretty useless on the right, but I appreciate having a thoughtful chat about it with reasonable people!

"Romney’s point about food stamps was precisely that the Obama economy sucks." Well I don't think so. Romney wants people to think that Obama has changed the eligibility for these programs to get more people on the government; at least this is what he's been saying. I just think it's so funny to characterize Obama has this big government socialist that is slowing down the economy. He has not changed eligibility for Food Stamps or Medicaid. Government employment has fallen rapidly. There has been a small increase in regulatory staff, but the majority of it is in homeland security, which conservatives tend to love. One area he has increased regulation is the environment, and people will argue whether that is a good or bad thing. Also, healthcare. The debate about those two issues is worth having.But he's so far away from what he's painted as by conservatives. As far as the position changes. I'm sure you can read any number of the articles today on fact checking things like his plans for pre-existing conditions or his statements about green energy. Not to mention that an across the board tax cut of the magnitude Romney wants is impossible to do without either increasing the deficit significantly or raising burden on middle class (no buzzwordo). With all that said, even though Romney didn't really specify much of his plans, he made a couple good points (Dodd-Frank is a poorly written bill!), but he was extraordinarily misleading and Obama just didn't confront him on that

It's hard to tell at this point. Romney does have a large pro-bazinga base. Either way, there seems to be a recovery in the shenanigans market, which helps Obama. Nevertheless, wisecracks are at an all time low so who knows!

Sorry to get serious, but i'm pretty disappointed. I think even more frustrating than Romney contradicting his prior positions or just outright lying is the notion that even the things that he said that are true are easily refutable, but Obama completely ignored them. The increase in people on food stamps comes to mind. Yes, there has been a large increase. But that the increase is almost entirely caused by unemployment and the economic downturn, or that eligibility has not changed for the program seemed not to matter at all to Obama. It's not the first time Obama has capitulated to off-base Republican attacks, in hopes that the public will see through the bullshit, yet that approach has hardly worked. One thing to take solace in is that Obama plays a good long game. Romney is now boxed in to several tricky positions. But in a country obsessed with zingers and bazingas, I'm not sure it matters. ugh.
