    Video: Unions Fine Members Who Don’t Show Support for Elizabeth Warren

    A GOP source sends along this video, shot by a Republican tracker, of a union member supporting Democratic Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren outside of a debate Wednesday night in Springfield, Massachusetts. The cameraman asks the union member if he was at an earlier debate between Warren and her Republican opponent, Senator Scott Brown.

    “Uh-huh,” the union member says, nodding.

    “Did you guys get fined if you weren’t there?” the cameraman asks.

    “Yeah,” the union member replies.

    “How much did you get fined?” the cameraman asks.

    “A hundred and fifty,” the man says, although he later adds, “It’s two-fifty if you don’t go.” Watch the video

    So did the White house learn how to play the numbers from Todd or did Todd learn it from the whitehouse? :lol:

    Chuck Todd Defends Obama’s Lead In NBC Poll, Concedes Romney Holds 10 Point Advantage Among ‘Day Of’ Voters

    NBC News’ Chief White House Correspondent Chuck Todd appeared on MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell Reports on Thursday to defend the findings of an NBC News/Wall Street Journal/Marist survey of the battleground states – particularly those in Ohio. Todd said that President Barack Obama leads Mitt Romney in Ohio by 51 to 45 percent in that survey of likely voters and the president’s lead is driven primarily by early voters. Todd said that Obama leads Romney 2 to 1 among early voters, and 1 in 5 voters in Ohio will or have cast early ballots. However, Todd was forced to concede that this poll shows Romney with a colossal 10 point advantage among voters who plan to cast their ballots on Election Day.

    “While there are some folks that want to say party I.D. sample in our poll, it’s too high, it’s too many Democrats. Well, one of the reasons it is that there are so many early voters. And we found 1 in 5 that call themselves – that have already voted, well that’s a 2 to 1 advantage for the Democrats,” said Todd.

    “These aren’t likely voters anymore, they’re voters,” said Todd.

    “But balancing those out are those remaining,” said Mitchell.

    “Those on Election Day, Romney has a 10 point advantage,” said Todd. He went on to say that the Obama campaign’s early voting strategy has outpaced the Romney campaigns. Furthermore, just because a polling outfit measures a voter as “likely” to show up on Election Day does not definitively mean they will.

    So the numbers are bull…

  • Sicilian Papa



    Don’t they know that we can look the numbers up. Corrupt!

  • Mark2

    I saw this comment on Yahoo:

    National Polls are meaningless….Electoral votes are the only thing that matters. Nationwide, more Americans voted for Al Gore but Bush won because he won more Electoral votes.

    Popular Vote:
    Gore = 50,999,897 (48.4%)
    Bush = 50,456,002 (47.9%)

    Electoral Vote:
    Bush = 271
    Gore = 266

  • Mark2

    I also believe that Mitt will win the popular vote but lose the Electoral vote

    Obama = 271
    Romney = 266

    Romney Swing State Victories:
    North Carolina
    New Hampshire

    Obama Swing State Victories:

  • Mark2

    ^266 should be 267

  • Sicilian Papa


    Mark 2

    I wouldn’t count Ohio yet. If the corrupt lib. media is fudging the polls I wouldn’t put that in the win column.

  • Ratboy

    I would not count Wisc out either!

  • Sicilian Papa


    Paul Ryan

    If Fred Flinstone aka Slow Joe Biden gets a little snarky talking about money expertise, please bring up Joe’s endorsement of John Corzine. Joe believes Corzine to be the man you go to to talk about money.

    Corzine who bankrupted the State of NJ. Things got so bad in blue Jersey that they had to bring in the cookie monster Repub. Chris Christe. He also lost billions of his companies money on some hair brained investment.

    Joe Biden the man who will save the day for President Obama.

  • Ratboy

    Ah Yes Solyndra, nobody on the left wants to talk about it especially Obama!!

    IRS says ‘tax avoidance’ at heart of Solyndra bankruptcy plan

    The Internal Revenue Service urged a bankruptcy judge to reject solar panel maker Solyndra LLC’s bankruptcy plan Wednesday, saying it amounts to little more than an avenue for owners of an empty corporate shell to avoid paying taxes.

    REPORT: Biden, Dems lobbied for federal loans…

  • Mark2

    @SP and Ratboy

    Yeah but one can say the same about not counting out Florida, Virginia, Colorado, New Hampshire and Nevada out for Obama.

    I was being very generous towards awarding those States to Romney.

  • Ralph Hahn

    Although I wouldn’t put it past NBC News to lie, Rupert Murdock’s News Corp. owns the Wall Street Journal. So, if the poll numbers are bogus, it must have been the way NBC had reported them.

    If any of you were in Paris, how much time would you spend posting on TVBTN about unemployment. Either a different Jeff is posting or ..well you reach your own conclusions.
