Sorry to scare you on Halloween, but here's my collection of things to worry about a week before the election
Storm Brings Obstacles One Week Before Vote
Electronic voting machine mischief (where they have electricity!)
Romney Campaign Training Poll Watchers To Mislead Voters In Wisconsin
This year's Katherine Harris?
Ohio Secretary of State Jon Husted
David Brooks: Yes, Romney is a spineless opportunist - and that's a GOOD thing
If Romney wins
[Mark Kleiman] If the Republicans lose this year, they might start to rethink their recent strategies. If instead they were to win (absit omen!) then they will be reinforced in their current behavior pattern. That is, they will be reinforced in:
Constant, shameless lying
Downward class warfare
Global warming denialism/Lysenkoism
If Romney loses . . . it'll make Florida 2000 look like a picnic
[NB: Do you think they've spent a billion dollars to lose gracefully? And Romney is JUST the guy to do this.]
In slightly less spooky news:
Chris Christie (R-NJ) didn't get the message (thanks to CV)
Chris Christie Praises Obama's Storm Response
"I've got a job to do here in New Jersey that's much bigger than presidential politics and I could care less about any of that stuff. . . . I've got 2.4 million people out of power. I've got devastation on the shore. I've got floods in the northern part of my state. If you think right now I give a damn about presidential politics then you don't know me."
Can you guess which one is the lie, and which one is the truth?
Romney Surrogate Reassures Ohio Voters: Roe v. Wade Safe Under Romney
Right And Left Agree: A Romney Presidency Would Imperil Roe v. Wade
Here's a hint: http://maddowblog.msnbc.com/_news/2012/10/30/14808520-what-norm-coleman-doesnt-understand-about-roe-v-wade
[Steve Benen] The facts are not in dispute: Romney wants to overturn Roe; his platform calls for a constitutional amendment that bans all abortions; Romney said he "absolutely" supports a "Personhood" measure that would ban all abortions and some forms of birth control; Romney would be "delighted" to sign a bill that would no longer allow abortions "at all, period"; and Romney intends to "get rid of" Planned Parenthood.
Is Willard's "Jeep to China" lie backfiring in Ohio?
He's still using it: http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/plum-line/post/romney-expands-false-jeep-to-china-ad-campaign/2012/10/30/89e8a986-229d-11e2-ac85-e669876c6a24_blog.html
You didn't really believe that Willard's "hurricane relief" rally would be free of partisan sniping, did you?
Reporters blast Romney’s “Hurricane relief” stunt
Tough, very tough ad on the GOP's "war on women"
