News Desk — With Florida, It’s Obama 332 – Romney 206

MITT ROMNEY conceded Florida this afternoon, with there just not enough votes left to push him over the top.

From the Miami Herald:

“The numbers in Florida show this was winnable,” Brett Doster, Florida advisor for Romney, said in a statement to The Miami Herald. “We thought based on our polling and range of organization that we had done what we needed to win. Obviously, we didn’t, and for that I and every other operative in Florida has a sick feeling that we left something on the table. I can assure you this won’t happen again.”

With Florida’s 29 Electoral College votes, Obama will have 332 votes to Romney’s 206.

    You mean Turd Blossom didn’t comment on the Miami Herald report? :)

    WTH is wrong with Florida. It’s a disgrace what the GOP has done there to discourage folks to vote. No one should have to wait all of one’s waking hours in one day to stand on line to vote. How many people can stand up that long in the first place without getting sick to their stomach’s? It’s oppressive; since when is exercising one’s constitutional right to vote that?

    And, this is just astounding and also oppressive: From the Atlantic

    Open Quote:

    “”The ballot will be chock full of choices, for president, U.S. Senate, Congress, the state Legislature, county offices and merit retention for judges, all the way down to city and county referendums. But what may prompt some voters to rub their eyes in disbelief is the Legislature’s decision to place 11 proposed changes to the Constitution on the ballot, some of which appear in their entirety.

    “They have really created a monster,” said Monroe County Supervisor of Elections Harry Sawyer Jr. in Key West. Four amendments run on for hundreds of words, and are full of legalese such as this, on Amendment No. 5, dealing with the court system:

    “If the Legislature determines that a rule has been readopted and repeals the readopted rule, this proposed revision prohibits the court from further readopting the repealed rule without the Legislature’s prior approval.” “”

    And, why so many pages to complete? And, since when do voters need an attorney to accompany them to interpret WTH a ballot is proposing?

    Something is rotten here and it’s not in Denmark.
