I see the news that the NBPP watching the polls at Philly and the GOP were escorted out of polling places but a judge overturn it and the Navy Seals are watching the NBPP to see the voters do not get intimated the left will do anything to cheat steal and lie to win this election its a damn shame when there is no civility on the left but tell us right wingers to be respectable. I would like to see the right to get their heels dug in to the ground and stand your ground and let these socialist a-holes that we are for freedom and the pursuit of happiness and we want our children to inherit a great country for generations to come god you all god bless america and god bless our troops.
Putting aside all the voter models, there’s one overlooked point worth making with Election Day at hand. Most times in American politics, optimists win, and pessimists lose. I know that’s not always the case. And sometimes it’s hard to distinguish between the two. But in this election, I believe Mitt Romney is the optimist, and Barack Obama is the pessimist. It’s Romney’s election to win.
 
Parenthetically, in my lifetime, it was Dwight Eisenhower the optimist, Stevenson the pessimist; Kennedy the optimist (“Get America moving again”), Nixon the pessimist; Reagan the quintessential optimist, Carter the pessimist; and going further back in history, FDR...
