2008 Election Map
Play with the interactive map here:
Stranded in Sonoma
September 4th, 2012
Here’s a better map. It has the changes from the 2010 census, who lost and who gained. Here’s the 2008 results. If you bring them both up on different tabs, you can bounce back and forth to see who went red or blue in comparison with the 2012 map.
I’m putting Obama at about 240 electoral votes max. That’s about 300 to Romney.
Actually, I think it’s 242. WA(12), OR(7), CA(55), HI(4), MN(10), WI(10), MI(16), IL(20), PA(20), NY(29), CT(7), MA(11), RI(4), VT(3), ME(4), NJ(14), MD(10), DE(3), DC(3). Maybe NV(6). Obama is still short by about 30.
I’m a pessimist, so this is my map:
I truly hope I’m wrong.
I’d like to see BigFurHat’s prediction map…
@ForExample — Here’ my map from the site you linked. I do not see CO or NM or MO going for Obama. And MI may be in play. If either MN, WI, MI, or PA goes Romney, Obama is out. Of course, I’ll laugh my @$$ of if IL goes red!
Ah, I was hoping we’d get a chance to do this.
This took me about 15 minutes, but here’s mine;
Obama keeps Nevada, New Mexico, Pennsylvania, and the safe-blue states like IL, CA, and NY.
He loses lean-blue states like New Hampshire and Michigan, and thanks to Ryan, Wisconsin.
Even if Obama holds Ohio, Romney wins with Michigan and Wisconsin.
Bad news for Obama; Ohio, Michigan, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, and Maine all elected Republican Gov’s in the 2010 election.
Watch Maine…It may very well go red this time around.
Why Do Black Voters Tolerate Racist Democrats?
Why do black voters tolerate racist Democrats such as Bill Clinton and Joe Biden?
I have no idea. Habit?
William Jefferson Blythe Clinton is scheduled to deliver the keynote speech at the Democrat National Convention on Wednesday. It’s doubtful America’s scandalized 42nd president will mention his impeachment or his Oral Office encounters with Monica Lewinsky any more than he will comment on his observation to the late Ted Kennedy that ”A few years ago, this guy [Obama] would have been carrying our bags.”
That racist observation might seem like a Republican smear of Clinton but it’s far from it. It appeared in a 2008 article by Ryan Lizza in the arch-liberal NewYorker magazine outlining the Clinton camp’s vicious attacks on Obama during the dirty 2008 Democrat primary campaign.
Fortuitously in time for the Charlotte convention, Lizza clarified Clinton’s words of just four years ago by telling CNN’s Soledad O’Brien that “I don’t think it’s racial. I don’t think Bill Clinton has a racist bone in his body.”
Of course not ! Bull Connor and Elijah Muhammad never had a a racist in their bodies either so how could ”America’s first black president,” according to Toni Morrison, (a designation later retracted), a semi-progressive Democrat who was supported by the vast majority of African-American voters in 1992 and 1996, cast such a nasty racist aspersion on Obama?
For that matter, how could then-Democrat senator Joe Biden describe Obama in 2008 as “the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy” and still be picked by Obama as his running mate?
Weren’t Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson articulate, bright, clean, nice-looking African-Americans when they ran for president, Mr. Biden?
Isn’t it as racist to single out Obama as a somehow special African-American simply because he can speak well, is smart, bathes regularly, and doesn’t scare dogs and small kids by his looks as racist as Bubba saying Obama would be an obsequious hotel or airport baggage-handler “a few years ago”?
Maybe during those relatively few years a sea change occurred in the racist thinking of the Democrat Party during which Dems refined their racism by electing an African-American as president rather than regarding Obama as exceptional since he’s smart, clean, etc. and the equivalent of one of those guys at airports who extort payments for labors a well-trained chimp could perform. . .

Florida now has 29, not 27. We aren’t falling for his crap again!
Maybe wishful thinking on my part.
But, I think that Romney will get more states than what they want you think right now. I bet PA, OH, WI, MI, FL and several others go to Romney. I would not be surprised if IL went Romney, depends on how many dead people get to vote. But I do not think Emanual or the Unions will do much this go round to help Barko Bama.
It would not surprise me if Barko gets less than 200 electoral college votes and Romney gets well above 340.
