I just hate it when people spew "our only hope is Romney". Really? Do you think the world is going to end when Obama is re-elected? Actually, the two party system is pretty much a joke anymore. If you saw Harry Reid and Mitch McConnell on 60 Minutes last night, it's pretty clear that neither side actually remembers what they were sent to Washington to do. I'm voting Obama because his beliefs are most closely aligned to me. When I look at Romney, all I see is a rich hypocrite. For those of us whose number one priority is an educated citizenry, it speaks volumes that Romney has the audacity to say that teachers want smaller class sizes because it benefits the teachers' unions, yet he sent his children to private schools where the average class size was 12. His entire campaign has been an insult to middle class voters. I think he did a great job at running the Olympics...maybe he can find another gig doing something similar. That being said, I'm pretty cynical about the next 4 years regardless of who wins on Tuesday. Obama will be roadblocked by the Republican congress...and Romney would be roadblocked by the Democrat Senate. Until real compromise and genuine discussion can be reached on the huge issues facing our country in the next several years, I'm not optimistic. Pity that the so called best and brightest can't figure out a way to get things done.

Seriously, I cannot wait to see all of you eat your words next week. No chance Ohio will go for Romney...ergo...Obama is re-elected. The only way Romney takes Ohio is if he steals it. Gee...like that's never happened before....

I agree, Bob...but it will be a bit amusing to read the sniveling and carping from the other side.

Somebody appears to be having a temper tantrum because they look to be losing in Ohio...

Obama will win Ohio for a couple of reasons: 1. Teachers, nurses, firefighters, police, and other public employees will never vote Republican after the SB5 debacle last year. 2. People my age and older remember what happened when the steel mills left in the late 70's. Without the auto bailout, we could have looked at something even worse if Lordstown closed. 3. A lot of Ohioans just can't warm up to Romney. I mean, which Romney are you voting for...the liberal Massachusetts governor, the born again Tea Party candidate, or the moderate candidate seen in the last debate? Many are just confused as to who the "real" Romney really is. Ohioans are pretty smart and can see right thru that act. My prediction: Obama takes Ohio and the presidency.

If I were a Republican, I would be horrified by these comments. Why don't you Republicans stand up and unite against Mourdock and Akin? If you have any hope of acquiring mass numbers of female voters, you need to act swiftly and decisively against these hateful morons.

Voter fraud is NOT a problem!! Again I ask, what are you people so afraid of?
"Because voter fraud is essentially irrational, it is not surprising that no credible evidence suggests a voter fraud epidemic. There is no documented wave or trend of individuals voting multiple times, voting as someone else, or voting despite knowing that they are ineligible. Indeed, evidence from the microscopically scrutinized 2004 gubernatorial election in Washington State actually reveals just the opposite: though voter fraud does happen, it happens approximately 0.0009% of the time. The similarly closely-analyzed 2004 election in Ohio revealed a voter fraud rate of 0.00004%. National Weather Service data shows that Americans are struck and killed by lightning about as often."

It would help if you actually read the above article instead of going on your grammatically-challenged rant. First of all, sending in an absentee ballot isn't free. The return postage is something like three bucks. Plus, you have to take it to the post office to get the postage affixed to the return envelope. What if you are elderly and don't have the means to get to a post office? What if you just can't afford the return postage? Personally, I would love to be able to vote from the privacy of my own home via computer/phone/email. And voting on one designated day is simply archaic. The above writer goes on and on about what a horrible president Obama is. What difference does that make? That's not the point of the article!! Why are you so afraid of letting people vote?

Cruzer, I did not know that. That helps explain the verdict then....

Cruzer, I don't understand that verdict either. Makes no sense to me. If two people.. both of whom either pleaded guilty or were found guilty...testified against him, and he was found not guilty, makes you kind of wonder what happened. It would appear the prosecution didn't do their job. Go figure!!
