Live blog: Election 2012, the final chapter

UPDATE: 6:40: Early exit polls report that 2012 electorate is ’slightly’ more Republican than in 2008. That’s crucial, because most 2012 polling is built on the assumption that 2012 turnout will be similar to 2008 turnout.

UPDATE: 7:40 Obama up in early Ohio exit polls.

Winning by 11 among women, down 6 among men. Net up three. If that holds, that’s crucial.

UPDATE: 8:07: Early exit polling from Pennsylvania: Obama up five. That is the sound of a door slamming shut. Romney needs some good news, and so far he isn’t getting any.

UPDATE: 9:28″ Romney needs to prove that the polls are wrong, and so far they just aren’t. For example, Fox just gave Wisconsin — Paul Ryan’s home state — to Obama. Another door slams shut.

UPDATE: 9:52: New Hampshire called. Pennsylvania called. Both for Obama. Romney is running out of routes to the White House.

In the Senate, Elizabeth Warren beats Scott Brown; Richard Mourdock loses in Indiana. Tammy Baldwin wins in Wisconsin, becoming our first openly gay U.S. senator.

UPDATE: 10:05: Republicans were insistent that the polls were oversampling Democrats, that there was no way so many Americans were Democratic.

So far, it looks as though they were wrong.

UPDATE: 10:48: This bodes poorly long-term for the GOP:

Exit poll finds that 74 percent of Republicans believe illegal immigrants should be deported.

Overall, just 29 percent of Americans share that opinion. So how do you convince that 74 percent that the party has to alter its viewpoint to succeed?

Despite efforts to stabilize Fulton County’s elections system in time for Tuesday’s vote, the Georgia Secretary of State’s office is “extremely concerned” at reports of problems at the polls in the county Tuesday morning, according to a spokesman for the office, Jared Thomas.

The issues are not isolated to one location but are scattered throughout Fulton at a level unseen in any other county, Thomas said. The office has fielded four investigators who are “very busy,” he added.

It really was much easier when Democrats ran Georgia and they just banned black people from voting via literacy tests, ones that I doubt half or more of the Dems couldn’t pass. Made for shorter lines at the polls for ignorant people that ran the state for 100+ years.

Romney’s Bain Capital invested in companies that moved jobs overseas

http://www.washingtonpost.com/business/economy/romneys-bain-capital-invested-in-companies-that-moved-jobs-overseas/2012/06/21/gJQAsD9ptV_story.html

The Washington Post recently reported that some of the companies Mitt Romney’s firm Bain Capital invested in were “pioneers in the practice of shipping work from the United States to overseas call centers and factories.” Even more troubling than his business record is his platform as
Republican presidential candidate, which includes a policy that would encourage and further accelerate the outsourcing of American jobs to foreign countries.

Romney’s strength: Outsourcing American jobs

In strategic sourcing circles they refer to it as “offshoring” and Bain Capital invested in companies that specialized in it when Mitt Romney was its leader between 1983 and 1999, according to Tom Hamburger in Thursday’s Washington Post.

Bain didn’t simply indirectly help shift a few jobs overseas – it invested in companies whose sole reason for being was to reduce costs for its clients by shipping entire business operations abroad to countries like China, India, Mexico and South Korea.

During the 15 years Romney actively ran Bain, it owned companies that were “pioneers in the practice of shipping work from the United States to overseas call centers and factories making computer components.”

Romney Invested In Company That Is Outsourcing Jobs, Forcing Workers To Train Their Chinese Replacements

By Travis Waldron on Aug 24, 2012 at 4:07 pm

Workers at Sensata Technologies, a business based in Freeport, Illinois, have been protesting Mitt Romney’s campaign stops across the country all summer because the company, which is owned by Bain Capital, is laying off workers in order to hire employees in China. Bain took control of Sensata in 2006; last year, it took over the Freeport plant and announced that it would layoff 165 workers and close it.

Some of the workers, according to Sensata employees, have been forced to train their Chinese replacements, adding insult to the injury that was their looming job loss.

Given the provisional ballot situation in Ohio, we could be a week and a half or more away from knowing who our next president will be.

“Ohio shaping up as ground zero for Election Day disputes”

“But it is in Ohio, where the polls in the race between President Barack Obama and Mitt Romney remain tight, where a key dispute is brewing. It centers on an emergency motion from a labor union and homeless advocacy group asking a federal court to clarify whether Ohio voters who cast provisional ballots – or the workers who process them – are responsible for incomplete or missing identification information on those ballots.

The ruling, from U.S. District Court Judge Algenon Marbley, will not come in time for Election Day. But he is expected to decide the case by Nov. 17, when Ohio counts provisional ballots.

The case is the result of Ohio Secretary of State Jon Husted’s order last week that county elections officials should not accept provisional ballots if they include incomplete information on the type of identification the voter used to obtain the ballot.”

Republicans Want A CEO President That Outsourced Jobs

By: Ray MedeirosJune 24th, 2011

We need a President with a business background, someone to get the economy growing and stronger. That has been the talking point of the GOP for many months. The two most prominent GOP candidates with a strong business background are Mitt Romney and John Huntsman but unfortunately both of these gentlemen have been either creating jobs overseas or buying crumbling companies, splitting them off and outsourcing American jobs.

Let’s first take a look at Mitt Romney. As an executive, Romney would buy struggling companies, break them up and ship parts to foreign low wage countries. Now many people on the right will try to defend this as doing what he was paid to do, which was to take companies and turn them around to be profitable. The problem is, he could have turned them around, made a healthy profit, restructured them and finally kept the jobs here in America. Romney didn’t do that. He decided to make an even bigger profit by destroying communities through outsourcing. He didn’t stand with the workers of factories or other businesses at all. He decided to stand with the shareholders ONLY and I am sure some of the shareholders weren’t even American.

We will take it in the teeth of President Obama is not re-elected. No access to high risk pool health care, no reproductive rights, extreme limits on itemized deductions, include medical expenses under the Romney-Ryan plan. The 17K limit Romney put out there, as part of his plan, will be eaten up almost immediately with after tax cost of health insurance for two at 15K a year. YES, $15K before the huge deductibles are even taken into consideration. Here is one middle class person who is going to take in the teeth, to broaden the tax base, and lower taxes for the well to do. And, all this misery is just make sure the net result of Romney’s plan is tax neutral (meaning not a penny goes to lower the national debt). Dream on, the middle class, we are about to get screwed to the floor boards.

Early exit polls report that 2012 electorate is ’slightly’ more Republican than in 2008. That’s crucial, because most 2012 polling is built on the assumption that 2012 turnout will be similar to 2008 turnout.

Good Mexican food? (is that possible in Atlanta?)

Or a tequila bar?

Republicans are turning out tonight, greater than 2008. I don’t see Obama’s turnout as great as 2008.
After what Obama did in Benghazi, he should have been escourted from the White House.

“Slightly” is all that’s needed in this election.

“You’re only as old as you feel”

Still tryin’ to figure out if that’s what others say when they touch you, or if that’s what you say when you keep using the same moves -

Sure like what Bush did after 911 or invading Iraq after failing to get Bin Laden ?
