Put off the Presidential Election due to Sandy???

I've read a ton of stuff on the worldwide computer...speculation that Hurricane Sandy might cause the 2012 Presidential Election to be put off, due to the severe destruction/the fact that voting won't be either easy, or accessible/etc./yada yada yada...

Truth is, I don't really have much of a problem with that.  As I understand what I've read, each State may well have the authority to switch up the rules to accommodate their citizens in cases of severe calamity.  

But, I also understand that they've all got to get it done by December 11, or December 17.  I'm fuzzy on the exact date.

Regardless, I don't really have a problem with the States that have been hit hard by Sandy to make their own way on this thing.  I mean, New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Rhode Island, New Hampshire, Massachussets (sorry...the red line of misspellin' just will not disappear on that one), The DofC,  Delaware, Maryland, and even over on to Pennsylvania, Ohio, West Ginny, Ginny, and Kentucky, and allbody that doesn't feel like they can give their citizens a fair shake at the voting booths should be able to wait a while to hold they votin'!

So...of those...Romney is probably only going to win Kentucky, WV, VA for sure, PA (maybe, but probably not), and maybe Ohio.

Does anybody think John Kasich is gonna go for a postponement?  Does anybody think that even if Christie postpones the vote, it will make one bit of a difference in NJ?  


Point is...

This election is over.

When the returns come in on November 6 (regardless of whether many of the blue States have yet voted), Mitt Romney will have gained enough Electoral Votes to win the Presidency.

Late voting due to Sandy, will only serve to determine election outcomes in the US House, US Senate, and local dogcatcher junk.

So, I for ONE, am not getting too upset about the prospect of a protracted Presidential vote.  In fact...if my scenario plays out, I can see multiple millions of disappointed ObozOites not even going to the trouble of voting (since he's already lost)...possibly giving Republican candidates for the House and Senate races an edge once they gets they power up, and they rooodz open.

And, I just can't not post this...


  1. I git your reasoning. Linked here: http://bobagard.blogspot.com/2012/10/might-some-states-put-off-voting-due-to.html

  2. You don't know how much I want you to be correct about a Romney win. I feel pretty good about it.

  3. Postponing the election would only make things worse for Obama, as the stories about what really happened in Benghazi get revealed more and more every day, despite the mainstream media's attempts to ignore them.

    I hope I'm not jinxing things, and I was far less confident a couple months ago, but it's looking like Obama may well go down in flames come Tuesday.

  4. I'm ambivalent on the delay... but no longer than a week or two.


Don't cuss nobody out, okay?
