If you don't like those odds, Irish bookmaker Paddy Power said Monday that it was already paying out bets that Obama would win, a day before voters went to the polls.

The move was announced in a controversial, some would say offensive, advertisement published in the Irish Times, that read: "Sorry Romney. You're not black, or cool. We're paying out early on an Obama victory."

"It certainly wasn't our intention to offend people," said Paddy Power in a statement. "Our advertising is designed to be bold – we sometimes like to get people talking – and funny".

Paddy Power said it has already paid out more than $650,000 to "punters" who placed bets that Obama would win. The bookmaker said 75% of the money staked on the election has gone in favor of Obama.

Was listening to Hannity... VERY high turnout and long lines in Republican leaning Ohio counties.

I am voting late on purpose as I want to see what the after-work turnout is like in my deep blue neighborhood.

FYI just got back from the pols in so Florida.
I arrived at 4:15 and waited on line to get in until 4:55.
When I was able to enter the polling room, I was placed n another line, asked to show my voter IID and a photo ID.
I was then given another card after they logged me in.
I waited another 20 minutes to get the 5 page (really 10 pages b/c two sided) and was instructed to wait online to submit my scan-tron ballots into a reader machine.
The entire process took almost all of two hours.

Saw some Obama supporters but most of the people in my precinct are Rubio types.

If the target democrat is faced with waiting online, they will probably pass.

I hope I wake up tomorrow and the national nightmare is over.

How many of us are here thinking how bad things have gotten that we should have to pay attention to all this after what we have lived through the past 4 freakin years? Sad.

Ikaika said...

It's historic. Either America s snatched from jaws of death, or she passes the point of no return....



Sorry chess, too much drama

Ikaika said...

Florida a toss up...

Hell_Is_Like_Newark said...

Voted 5 minutes to closing. Very high turnout in my deep blue ward. One guy chanted I entered, "vote blue!" The welfare cases were there making sure the benefits keep flowing.

Kind of depressing..

This might be a close race...

Where /when do we come across the panhandle of Florida?

Hell_Is_Like_Newark said...

Obama is ahead by about 30k votes in Florida. It looks like Virginia is going solid Romney.

Hell_Is_Like_Newark said...

PA for the moment is going solid Obama.

This is starting to look like the 2000 election.

Hell_Is_Like_Newark said...

Florida has a 3000 vote spread. It is year 2000 all over again.

Please give me nc...va...fla...We can fight for wis./Ohio.

Coal miners in west Pa have to hate Philly.

chess said...

Jesus. Just thought of brother against brother in civil war.. mine coal. no! dont mine coal.Its our livelyhood . no.wow. scarey.

Hell_Is_Like_Newark said...

Only a small portion of Miami-Dade has reported while a good portion of the panhandle has. It looks like FL will go for Obama.

If that happens... its over.

chess said...

As in Chess. Checkmate

It looks like right now Obama taking both Ohio and Florida.

Sultan wraps it up this am. Until repubs learn to get a machine on the streets like the dems its over.. Its over anyway. Hell your wife is correct.
Time for me to worry bout me. thanx you all...

We pray that the conservative sup ct justices survive the next four.
The fact that we have more repub governors is promising.
Obama will play more golf.
Israel will probably get steamrolled.
the Economy will continue to stagnate and unemployment will be the same.

The rest of the week will be filled with smug.
I've heard way too many leftists tell me "i told ya so" over various media outlets.
There will probably be a sea change when latinos and women realize that the DNC gave them 8 years of empty promises.

But what do you expect from the party of revenge?

I know where my money is going and I've been somewhat hedged for this event.

Europe gave back all it's Obama Euphoria - it's tanking as investors see not a fiscal cliff, but the road to serfdom in both the EU and the USA.
