The 400,000 Votes That Tipped the Election

The only ones left who even pretend that election was valid are the Democrat election officials who perpetrated that fraud against the American people. Anybody who wanted to voted when they wanted, where they wanted and as often as they wanted. It was no more a legal expression of the will of the people than a scratch off lottery, and everybody, Everybody, EVERYBODY knows it. Worse yet, is the notion being passed like gas, that Democrats represent some kind of new majority among Americans. That crowd you saw at the Democrats National Apology, including every single speaker, was nothing more than a crew of spokesmodels you can purchase to appear at any birthday, private function or corporate conclave, at a price.

Broad trends and the national political undertow can't be adequately captured in any single statistic -- but if Mitt Romney had managed to push the electorate in a handful of states a few clicks in his direction, he'd be the president-elect, rather than an also-ran.  Via Jim Geragthy:
 

Florida: 73,858

Ohio: 103,481

Virginia: 115,910

Colorado: 113,099

Those four states, with a collective margin of, 406,348 for Obama, add up to 69 electoral votes. Had Romney won 407,000 or so additional votes in the right proportion in those states, he would have 275...
