Dean: Obama can’t lose Ohio — unless it’s because of voter suppression, of course

posted at 3:41 pm on November 6, 2012 by Erika Johnsen

On MSNBC this morning, former governor of Vermont and DNC chairman Howard Dean affirmed his belief that, when it comes to Obama in Ohio, there’s simply no way the man could lose given the state of the [early] vote and the polls — which seems odd, because the last time I checked, the early vote is looking pretty fair for Romney and the polls have the candidates in a dead heat in Ohio.

There’s some reports in Ohio… of voting machines that aren’t working in Toledo and Dayton and Cleveland and some reports of voter harassment in the Philadelphia area. So I think, actually, the president’s going to win this if we have a fair election. … Yep, it’s a problem. … Given the vote and the leading of the polls in Ohio, the only way he can lose is if people are prevented from casting their ballots, either by voting machines that aren’t functioning right or other forms of harassment.

Firstly, I wonder if he actually meant to conclude quite what he did — voting problems are the only possible way that Romney could win Ohio? Really? Also, there have been reports of some sketchy election goings-on in Pennsylvania, but they’re of the sort that would be favorable to a Barack Obama victory. And secondly, I think we can all agree that voting-machine malfunctions (whether accidental or intentional), voter intimidation, and other forms of voter suppression are indeed real things that exist in the physical world, and are absolutely unacceptable in any shape, manner, or form. But if we can all agree that real efforts at voter suppression exist, why can’t Democrats seem to accept the notion that voter fraud is a real thing, too? If they can acknowledge that it’s possible people might use certain methods of cheating to influence election outcomes, why aren’t all methods of cheating treated with equal scrutiny?

For example, here’s some news fresh out of California, via NBC:

An NBC Bay Area Investigation has uncovered thousands of California voters who remain on the voter rolls despite having  died several years ago.

That discovery prompted several state and Bay Area election officials to re-examine their records, after our investigation brought this issue to light. …

A closer look at the data revealed that some of the dead people were not only registered, but somehow, even voted, several years after their death. Sometimes, clerks say the mistake can purely be a clerical error, such as a misplaced signature or an outdated registration list that hadn’t been purged. Other times, though, the voting turns out to be fraud, clerks say, where family members vote on their dead relatives’ behalf.

Yes, but voter-ID laws are baseless, racist attempts to disenfranchise minorities and the poor. Riiiight.

Yes, they’re from Diebold, and they all malfunction exactly the same way. if you push the “Romney” pad, it records a vote for Obama. And if you push the one for Obama… it records a vote for Obama.

Of course, by Democratic Party standards, this is not considered a malfunction. Just Diebold knowing which side their bread is buttered on.

Keep in mind that most of countries have a much simpler political system, and voting there is a breeze. Ballots are usually much shorter; here’s an example from Iraq a few years ago:

Pick one:

____ Saddam Hussein

____ Kill my family

BobMbx on November 6, 2012 at 4:24 PM

Voter fraud is acceptable because it takes months and sometimes years for the cases to be investigated and to make their way through the legal system by which time it no longer matters what is found to be fact or fiction. What you end up with is the Florida Floating Chad fiasco where politically friendly judges are sought out and they issue judgments from the bench for their own side.

We are of course assuming that a vote registered for Obama will be displayed as such but its possible that it could show as a Romney vote and register it as an Obama vote. It wouldn’t take more than 1 in 50 or a 100 votes to be flipped in the right counties to make a significant difference.

See, the difference is, we have evidence on our side that says *your* side is doing it. You, however, are just making sh1t up.

And the Dems aren’t against voter ID because they’re concerned about disenfranchisement – it’s entirely because they *know* it will restrict their ability to continue to rig the vote. Plain and simple.

Not as much as you’re going to lose your mind before tonight is over.

P.S. – don’t pass out face down, you’ll drown in the pool of your tears.

If Romney wins it won’t bother me at all. I won’t even blame it on voter suppression! It will actually be better for me personally if he wins and actually lowers taxes 20% like he says he will (not likely). However, I actually care about my fellow countrypeople so I don’t mind paying taxes in order to provide the less fortunate with housing and food stamps. Either way, I’ll be fine.

Dean and MSNBC–all you need to know about unicorn farms, rainbows, and fairy dust.

Decency/jobs/coal/Benghazi/leadership/humanity/finances will win the day.

Love of country will be the icing on the cake.

Given that the Dems in Ohio were bringing in Somalis by the busload to vote, if the R’s are trying to suppress the vote, they’re sucking at it. (If I recall correctly, story was on Drudge last week)

So what if they were legal voters? Or are you saying people that look Somalian can not possibly be legal voters?

It never ceases to amaze me what a dope Dean is. We have the New Black Panthers in PA, Holder’s inlaws. Already setting up the beef for the loss.

Tell sonofabitch that they only need a utility bill, which is a joke.

Then you can keep right on paying at the old rate or—pick a person/charity and give it directly to them. After all, you don’t need it.

Ah, that sounds neat! Yeah, I read Tolkien back before the movies. Back then, people looked at you funny. Like, what the hell are you reading?!

So we’re sitting through the credits after the first movie of the LOTR trilogy, and this young couple behind us are talking:
SHE That was great! When does the next one come out?
HE Next year.
SHE We have to wait a whole year to find out what happens!
HE You could read the book.
SHE (pause) There’s a book?
