BARACK OBAMA MURAL IN PHILLY POLLING STATION CAUSES CONTROVERSY

Still not sure who you’re voting for?  If you live in Philadelphia’s Ward 35, expect to encounter a not-so-subtle suggestion en route to the ballot box.

Voters in this precinct were greeted by a mural of U.S. President Barack Obama – complete with “hope” and “change” slogans and an inspirational quote from the Democratic incumbent.  The mural was positioned literally a few feet away from a voting machine – in flagrant violation of state election law.

Nice, huh?

Not surprisingly, the mural left out any mention of Obama’s record when it comes to black unemployment and black income levels – which would have provided a factual contrast to the “hope” and “change” nonsense.

Not that we think Romney will be any better obviously (hence our endorsement of this guy).

The final two polls from Pennsylvania showed Obama enjoying a three-point lead over “Republican” presidential nominee Mitt Romney – within the margin of error.  That’s a much closer race than Democrats were expecting in the Keystone State – which went for Obama by more than ten points in 2008.

Since election laws were broken in this precinct, don’t count any of the votes. How stupid are these people?

So, disenfranchise all of the voters at said precinct regardless of who they voted for because of a mistake they had no part in making? Great idea.

This just in. At 12:45 pm EST all major networks, except CBS projected Oshitforbrains with 400 electoral votes and declared Odumbass President of these United States. CBS announced at 12:47 pm EST that they projected this at 11:45 am.

Have a great day you fucking libtar shits. The commies are coming home. Remember. I’ve been saying for the last 6 months you better start buying stocks in pitchfork mfg.

Have a Great Day!! :)

Did you pull this straight off the Foxnews site?

I stopped by over there for a look. The level of hyperbole suggests they know Mitt’s going down.

Everybody freakout.

The black communist/Muslim/Kenyan will be still be President and the Republicans will be ready to retrench and blame everything on Romney veering to the center.

Wash, rinse, repeat.

Oh, and you can forget the Senate. That’s also a lost cause thanks to Republicans and their love of rapey talk.

I’m not convinced Obama has this election in the bag just yet, although it does seem to be leaning in his favor. If he loses, I hope Democrats in the Senate stick with it and keep PPACA alive for the most part.

The picture should have been covered with a tarp or something, a pretty simple solution, but now a pretty big mistake by election officials.

Not only that, but Gov. Rendell said that black voter turnout is up 24% in Pennsylvania over 2008. Maybe all the voter suppression tactics by the Republicans have motivated those alleged to be “lazy, shiftless, etc.”

“alleged to be”,…….How about “proven to be through countless generations”? You obviously don’t know these people very well. And I don’t mean socially.

LMAO!

Really though, if there was going to be any shred of truth to who the sheeple are going to cast a vote for they could have simply put Goldman Sachs & GE logos in place of the Obama mural and been factually correct regardless of who most people voted while also not offending anyone(important that is).

I wish that I had taken pictures of the “Susan Brill for School Board” sign covered truck parked just past the “No political advertisements beyond this point sign” at my polling place.

NoBama’s painting is over the top in a polling place but the chances are pretty good he was going to win that precinct anyway since the Republican observers had been kicked out for most of the morning…

Colonel, did he win the precinct because of voter fraud? It seems to me that’s the suggestion.

Keep hammering away at the fraud meme. It’ll be a nice warm banky when Romney concedes later tonight. Total nonsense, but comforting nevertheless.

“Banky”?

I’d hold off planning that second term party just yet Skippy

A better question is why Romnesia is in New Hampshire. Surely he doesn’t think he will win if he only wins New Hampshire. As Lindsay Graham said quite wisely ‘IT’S NOT ROCKET SCIENCE:

Yes, “banky” as in what children call their security blankets. It’s the sort of metaphor that I use for people that live in their comforting delusions.

In any event, you didn’t answer my question.
