  • 765 voters with an exact match of first and last name, DOB and last four digits of SSN were registered in N.C. and another state and voted in N.C. and the other state in the 2012 general election.
  • 35,750 voters with the same first and last name and DOB were registered in N.C. and another state and voted in both states in the 2012 general election.
  • 155,692 voters with the same first and last name, DOB and last four digits of SSN were registered in N.C. and another state – and the latest date of registration or voter activity did not take place within N.C.

So, under the “ALAN COLMES” theory of democracy, if you challenge the President of the United States in the election process, and you LOSE that election, you forfeit your personal right to freedom of speech and expression!! And that applies EQUALLY to your wife of more than four decades!!

From his column in the Huffington Post, Alan Colmes writes:

Mitt Romney, rather than gracefully accepting defeat, continues to let us know he would have been a better president. Ann Romney, too, has expended energy bashing President Obama, ungraciously. Now comes a Wall Street Journal op-ed via Mitt Romney telling us what a failed leader the president is.

Colmes, for his liberal-biased part, feels that it is un-American for anyone, let alone Mitt and Ann Romney, to point out what is patently obvious to most of the rest of us, and apparently to Vladmir Putin and other world leaders, in that Barack Obama is a FAILED and WEAK PRESIDENT. History will eventually show that, to date, he is perhaps the WORST and WEAKEST President ever to sit in the Oval Office. (I’m sure Jimmy Carter is happy to have lived long enough to see someone “elevate” him from that role).

For the rest of Colmes’ column:

From Rush Limbaugh:

Pat Caddell said yesterday on Fox News that the reason Republican leadership has not pushed for a higher-level investigation of the IRS for targeting the Tea Party is because they want the IRS to go after the Tea Party. When you have 71% who want an investigation, 64% who believe it is a sign of corruption, including nearly a majority of Democrats, the reason is the establishment Republicans want the IRS to go after the Tea Party.

Got it?

They want them to go after the Tea Party because the Tea Parties are an outside threat to their power hold. I’m telling you, the lobbying-consultant class of the Republican Party and Republican leadership, who have been attacking the Tea Party and alienating them, they want the IRS to do this. That’s why there hasn’t been any establishment Republican pushback on the IRS. It’s almost safe to say the Republican establishment might be willing to lose a couple of elections if it meant getting rid of the Tea Party; because it’s clear, folks, they don’t want to win any elections the Tea Party can claim any credit for.

For Rush’s full Comments:

“The Obama administration is doing a far better job making the case for
conservatism than Mitt Romney, Mitch McConnell, or John Boehner ever did.
Showing is always better than telling, and when the government overreaches in so
many ways it gives support to the conservative argument about the inherently
rapacious nature of government.”

WOW, and that’s from Slate

BOSTON (AP) — Paul Ryan said Wednesday that he will return to Congress, but will spend some time with his family first.

Ryan was re-elected Tuesday to his House seat from southeastern Wisconsin on the same night he and Mitt Romney came up short in their bid to unseat President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden.

State law allowed him to run for both offices simultaneously. He would have had to resign from Congress had he won both.

In a written statement released from Boston, Ryan said he was grateful for the chance to be part of a national campaign.

“I am immensely proud of the campaign we ran, and I remain grateful to Gov. Romney for the honor of being his running mate,” he said. “I look forward to spending some time with my family in the coming days and then continuing my responsibilities as chairman of the House Budget Committee and representative of Wisconsin’s First Congressional District.”

Ryan and his family spent the night in Boston after attending what they had hoped would be a victory celebration after the presidential election was decided. They were scheduled to return to their home in Janesville, Wis., later in the day.

Advisers had been weighing whether Ryan would be best served by returning to Congress for an eighth term if he were planning to run for president in 2016.

Even before he was tapped to be Romney’s running mate, the 42-year-old father of three was seen as a rising star within the Republican Party. As chairman of the powerful Budget Committee, Ryan gained national prominence when he drew up an austere budget blueprint that would reshape Medicare and retain tax breaks set to expire at year’s end.–election.html

An observation from JAMES: If Paul and Janna Ryan are even remotely considering a run at the 2016 Presidency, he is wise to return to his seat in Congress for the next session. I suspect that Ryan, like Marco Rubio, will be extremely “front and center” during the coming weeks and months in challenging the Obama agenda, both setting their groundwork to announce their intentions for 2016.

By the Electoral College count, President Obama secured a large victory in his quest for a second term. But by the popular vote, the margin of victory is VERY thin, and it is such that shows that his divisiveness in the last four years continues to hold, and he awakes this morning to the status quo… The House is still Red, and Harry Reid still leads a Senate that has not passed a budget in nearly four years.

So as he sets forth on his legacy, which, God forbid, might include as many as three Supreme Court appointments, will Obama govern even more to the left and to his base, or will he be willing to create a legacy that shows that he truly is a President of all the people, and as he said last night, he has heard what even those who did not support him have said.

Only time will tell. But the new mission is to hold our elected officials more accountable, and that starts with forcing Obama to come clean on Benghazi….. even if it costs him his 2nd term.

Reminescent of the 2008 Election Day, the New Black Panthers have taken up their “monitoring” of the polls in Pennsylvania, sans the billy clubs. GOP Pollwatchers were banned from another site until a judge issued an emergency order. A woman in Denver was told she could not wear her M.I.T. sweatshirt in to vote because it was “political”, as was a t-shirt in Texas that said “Vote the Bible”.

In the battleground areas such as Ohio and Florida, there will be challenges to the process made throughout the day.

Meanwhile, President Obama and the First Lady will do some satellite talks from Chicago, enjoying their home there (where they will soon be sent packing to unless they opt for that $35million dollar home in Hawaii). The President is said to be preparing for his traditional Election day basketball game. The GOP contender is taking the battle head on, right to the end. After the Romneys voted in Belmont, MA, and the Ryan’s voted in Janesville, WI, it was back to the campaign, with stops in Cleveland OH, Pittsburgh PA, and Virginia, before both couples meet up together in Boston tonight for what many expect to be the celebration of the Election of POTUS #45, Willard Mitt Romney!!

And, for the election weary, your rest will be shortlived. For regardless of tonight’s winner, there is one thing we can be assured of…. the 2016 Presidential race begins TOMORROW!

Kids say the darndest things. But sometimes they say shocking things.

On Thursday, 9-year-old Brandon did the latter when he was asked why he wanted President Barack Obama to win a second term outside a campaign rally featuring First Lady Michelle Obama in Daytona, Fla.

“Because if Mitt Romney win, we’ll be going back to the crop fields,” Brandon said, referring to the days of slavery. “We’ll be picking crops.”

The father can be heard off-camera laughing. Obviously, no 9-year-old child would determine through their own reasoning that GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney would send African-Americans “back to the crop fields.”

“We need Obama to win, because Obama was our president for how many years? Three years. And we need him to win because he’s a good president,” the boy added.

“From August 27 through October 21, 71 percent of MSNBC’s coverage of Mitt Romney this year was negative, far outperforming Fox News’s negative coverage of President Barack Obama, which came in at 46 percent, according to a new survey by the Pew Research Center’s Project for Excellence in Journalism. The negative-to-positive ratio on MSNBC was roughly 23-to-1; the negative-to-positive ratio on Fox News was 8-to-1.”
