  1. How Obama could win in a landslide

    TIME magazine's cover story, which hit the newsstand Thursday, argues that Latino voters will cast the deciding vote in the upcoming election.

    Obama comes into the election with 196 electoral votes from safe Democratic states.

    If he takes Arizona and if Hispanic voters help him flip Missouri, which McCain won by fewer than 4,000 votes, and help him retain Colorado, Indiana, Michigan, Nevada, New Mexico and North Carolina, then Obama wins with 279 electoral votes, nine more than the 270 needed.

    If he can retain Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia or Wisconsin, also populated with many Latino swing voters, then he could win in a landslide.

    So THIS is why Odumbo has an open border policy. His own personal gain at great expense to our nation. Makes sense.

  4. I though I'd read where illegals arrested and deported during the Obama administration were greater in number than under the previous Republican President. Don't remember for sure, though.
  5. That is true Bigarrow.
  6. Maybe because there are now 3X as many in the US?

    Sure, it is possible Obama wins by a landslide. As 2008 showed, no matter how bad the Democratic candidate is the Republicans can be counted on to pick somebody even worse.

    Ron Paul was the best candidate in 2008 and is the best in 2012. But the Republican Party establishment hates him.

    Anything is possible. Never underestimate the power of stupid people in large groups. Acorn, anyone?
  9. Ah what the hell, let's go back to the days of the GOP God, Reagan and give them all amnesty, case closed as some of you like to say.

    And taking Limbaugh's side is pretty tacky. Look, I'm anti-abortion, and don't want to pay for it, and the girl should probably get another job to pay for her pills if need be. But Limbaugh makes Imus look like a boy scout. It will likely cost him.

    And, while I'm at it. George Will says to GOP "forget the white house."

    Or 'default choice Romney'

    And so much for 'anyone but Romney' it seems, but we'll see.

    I know this will rile some of you, sorry for that.

    But Reagan had an agreement with the liberals in Congress that the borders would be closed and no more illegals would be able to come in.
