Reckless rhetoric from the Left

By Tom Quiner


“The only way we lose is through voter fraud.”

With these remarks, Howard Dean has ensured turmoil for our country.

So-called comedian, Bill Maher joined the fray with his own reckless rhetoric the week before:

“If you’re thinking about voting for Mitt Romney, I would like to make this one plea: black people know who you are and they will come after you.”

How reckless, how very reckless. What little regard he has for our African-American brothers and sisters.

If Mr. Romney wins, Howard Dean and Bill Maher have collaborated with the political Left to drive a wedge through the heart of America and stir up national dissension.

It makes me think of Richard Nixon in 1960. A lot of people don’t remember that he chose not to challenge the Illinois vote that swung the election to John Kennedy, despite the evidence of widespread voter fraud at the hand of Mayor Daley’s political machine.

Mr. Nixon put the nation’s interests ahead of his own and accepted his defeat graciously for the sake of national unity.

Brace yourself for disunity with loose cannons like Maher and Dean fomenting social unrest.

    Shame on Howard Dean who is normally far more reasoned in his statements. What this says to me is that Romney has a strong shot at taking “The Buckeye State” – or so at least so the Democrats fear.

    As to Bill Maher, “If ignorance is bliss,” I suspect he must live in a constant state of euphoria.

      Yes, if it’s too close, it could get really ugly.

    President Obama is going to get re-elected with 303 electoral votes, including Iowa’s. has been “scary” accurate since 2004 in forecasting election results. In 2004 it called every single state correctly, in 2008 it called 48 states correctly, transposing an R for a D and vice versa… a change of 2 electoral votes. In 2010 it forecast all Senate races correctly. With a record of 130-2 correct forecasts of state-wide contests, I think it seems to be working.

    BTW… Intrade (70-30) is in agreement with the Iowa Electronic Markets (77-23), and the Nate Silver 538 (80-20)

    You knew it was almost over when the Repub commentators started dismissing the polls, calling them “biased” and “inaccurate” and questioning their methods. News-flash… they were just upset at what the message was.

      Very accurate.

    We may disagree on many issues, but please know I have no doubt you are sincere in your convictions. I assume things could have went much better for you and yours yesterday.
