    Poetic justice: Romney likely to finish at 47 percent

    Oh, if it only this comes true
    Poetic justice: Romney likely to finish at 47 percent

    When all the votes are counted, could Mitt Romney really end up achieving perfect poetic justice by finishing with 47 percent of the national vote? Yup. Dave Wasserman of the nonpartisan Cook Political Report says new votes in from Maryland put Romney at 47.56 percent. He predicts with certainty that with all of New York and California counted, Romney will end up below 47.5 percent of the vote.

    Rounded, of course, that would put the final tally at 51-47.

    If it ends up that way it will make an interesting footnote in books on the campaign.

    It's called poetic justice -- and we all love poets don't we?

    But it would appear by a quick review of your posts sore losers are very acceptable

    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.

    Given all the **** talking conservatives were giving on this board about how Romney was going to win, we now find conservatives can dish it out but they can't take it.

    Do you want us to call you a waaaaaaaaambulance too?

    Romney stated he had 47% in the original video

    Obama was able to buy off a majority of voters. If you look at the polls, Romney even won Independents by a wide margin, it didn't matter. The Obamaphones went to the polls in force.

    We get it though. You're a Marxist/Socialist/Collectivist whose simpleton world view is locked in a box of class envy and division. Good luck with that.

    Actually Obama had like 8 million LESS votes this time around. The simple fact is YOUR boy Romney sucked so bad that he got 3 million votes less than McCain and lost even though Obama had 8 million less votes than last election.
