@PruPaine #JustABlogger Electoral Vote Entry: Don’t Settle For Egg On Obama’s Face; Give It The Full Omelette

Commies in Seattle, Frisco, Chicago, and New York are going to have a pounding hangover to match the pounding #OccupyResoluteDesk takes tomorrow:

Click the map to join the fray. As a backup position, I predict that BHO doesn’t crest 200 in the electrical collage, even with states 51-57:

I trust that Romney, in stark contrast to BHO, will have the character to grasp that this isn’t about him. It’s about liberty.

Update: popular vote breakdown:

Romney: 59%
Obama: 39%
Other: 2%

Update II:

After that 01 August Chick-Fil-A munch-in, my gut says tomorrow will spell political obliteration for BHO.

Update III: Wow, Gay Patriot played a conservative hand. I hope he’s mis-underestimated the GOP turnout, and I think the 01-Aug-2012 Chick-Fil-A incident indicated that he may have.

Update IV: Oh, and Bill Quick may also be a little wobbly.

Update V: Great roundup at Nice Deb’s.

    Romney/Ryan 2012.

  • Evi L. Bloggerlady

    A wee bit overly optimistic, but I hope Prudence proves me wrong.

  • JeffS

    In the kitchen, I have a stockpile of popcorn, oil, salt, and butter. And beer.

    Elsewhere, extra food, critical supplies, arms and ammunition. Just in case.

    I’m a suspenders-and-belt sort of person.

  • jwallin

    I believe it will cripple the Democrats and the Mass Media.

    Now if only the House and Senate leadership would quit worrying about what the Democrats say or do or what the media asks about and do what is necessary to bring America back.

    BTW After twice almost ruining this country, could you idiots out there stop electing Democrats? Please.

    I’m getting too old for this sh!t.

  • physicsgeek

    I’m predicting 51%-49% Romney, with 271 EV for the win, with Wisconsin providing the winning votes.

  • Eric Dondero

    Smitty, why do you have Arizona as pink and not solid red?

  • Mortimer Snerd

    If this happens, I’ll pay good money to watch Chris Matthews report it. How sweet it would be!

  • Bob Belvedere

    Smells like 1980, perhaps?

    I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: anything over 270 is gravy.

    I like gravy.

    Electoral Vote: Romney 315, Obama 223

    Popular Vote: Romney 52%, Obama 47%, 3rd Parties 1%, Nate Silver 0

    A little apéritif to stimulate your appetite for tomorrow night’s main course…

    This story, linked by Wombat-Socho in the “Live at Five” section of TheOtherMcCain Times Gazette Union Post Telegraph Leader Journal Daily Press Mail News:

    The judge also ruled that Hanks has to cover Palin’s attorney’s fees.


    HaHa! HaHaHaHaHaHa! ahhhh

  • William T Quick

    I think you’re misreading me, smitty. I do think Romney is headed for a solid victory. But as for him suddenly becoming the full-throated conservative champion you’re hoping for, I think that is a much bigger stretch, and will only happen if conservatives don’t drink his etch-a-sketch Kool-Aid, but hold him to a far higher conservative standard than he has ever demonstrated in his political career before now.

    In other words, I don’t believe that Romney’s default position is liberty. Where has that been the case with him before?

    As I said – for conservatives, dumping Obama is only one battle in a much longer war.

  • K-Bob

    “…him suddenly becoming the full-throated conservative champion you’re hoping for…”

    On what planet have you found people with such a bizarre expectation? I’m guessing a punch-press operator could count them on one hand.

  • Finrod Felagund

    In the ‘more insane than Nate Silver’ department, Jim Cramer is predicting that Obama will get more than 400 electoral votes.

    He didn’t just smoke up, he must’ve drank the bongwater AND the koolaid.

  • Stan Brewer

    That map may change in the Northeast after the Sandy fiasco. New York and New Jersey were the hardest hit and Obama just stopped by to do a photo op, while the populous bears the brunt of the clean up.

  • smitty

    What’s that second 0 on that estimate for?

  • Finrod Felagund

    His empty head, I’m guessing. He didn’t give a state breakdown but someone worked it out and figured Obama couldn’t get there without winning Texas and Georgia, and I’ll eat my hat if Obama wins those.

  • smitty

    Is it OK if I want more howling from the Commies than that?

  • smitty

    Oh, I have no great expectations about Mitt as a conservative paladin.
    I have just completely lost whatever purely academic regard I may have had for BHO over Benghazi.
    Obama’s career should be as coldly, brutally dispatched as Woods and Doherty’s lives.

    So where does the hope he’ll understand it’s about liberty come from?

  • Kelly

    Only a born-and-bred Oregonian would know enough to represent the non-Portland/Eugene true leaning!

  • smitty

    Tacked onto the tip of a Tea Party boot lodged uncomfortably.

  • smitty

    Probably left it as default. AZ did produce John McCain, after all.

  • smitty

    So, so conservative.

    Ok, I filled out a map of my guesses.

    Rather than post an image, I’ll just post a summary:

    Romney 332, Obama 206

    Obama takes: ME (3, 1 to Romney) VT MA RI CT NY NJ DE MD IL MN NM WA OR CA HI. Rest all go to Romney.

  • Laughing My Ass Off

    I shall preserve this thread for a long time. Comedy gold!

  • Laughing My Ass Off

    How’s that alternate universe thing working out for you?

  • Laughing My Ass Off

    Perhaps. And then again… PERHAPS NOT!

  • Laughing My Ass Off

    Oh, we’re howling all right. Howling with laughter!
    That was too easy. Maybe you could make a little more of an effort next time?
