I Don’t Give A Damn About Chris Christie’s Opinions

* Bumped Up *

Bronwyn’s Note: Steve has it nailed. Last night, I turned to NPR, the one FM station on my car radio with news.THE HEADLINE? On BBC World News? First, BBC described Obama’s efforts. Snort. Romney? Chris Christie’s remarks headlined the segment. Screw him. “Priorities.”

Christie and Obama in September
(Charles Dharapak/AP)
Aren’t they a cute couple?

Governor Chris “Hey, look at me being a big fat jerk again!” Christie had plenty of praise for President Obama’s response to the hurricane in interviews Tuesday.  And the liberal press had a field day misquoting him out of context because of it.

“Chris Christie ‘Doesn’t give a damn’ about Romney photo op!” screeched one headline, which was quickly picked up by several lib-blogs.  As if Mitt Romney wanted to fly to New Jersey just to pose next to Chris Christie and other Eastern Seaboard disasters.  The way Chris Christie sucks the air out of a room, perhaps some scientists can figure out a way for him to suck the wind out of the hurricane.

I doubt anyone really cares what this self-absorbed POS has to say, except of course Chris Christie.  I swear, he’s the biggest name dropper in the world, provided the name he drops is “Chris Christie.”  This guy refers to himself in the third person more than Bob Dole and Queen Victoria combined!

“I’m Chris Christie, and Chris Christie said, ‘President Obama gave me his personal iphone number and he ^friended^ me on Facebook, not that Chris Christie needs anyone to friend him on Chris Christie’s Facebook page or any other Chris Christie social media!  And Chris Christie especially doesn’t need Mitt Romney’s help with anything, because we all know it’s Mitt Romney who needs Chris Christie, not Chris Christie who needs Mitt Romney.  And anyway, Chris Christie is going to run for president in 2016, so Chris Christie hopes Romney loses to Obama anyway so Chris Christie will be the next nominee of the Republican Party.  I sure know that I, Chris Christie, will be pleased to endorse Chris Christie in 2016.  And I want to thank my new BFF, the President, again for calling me personally THREE TIMES today!  And did I mention that he gave me, Chris Christie, his personal phone number so I could call him back anytime Chris Christie wants to sabotage Mitt Romney?’”

Or words to that effect.

Chris Christie on ABC’s Good Morning America 10/30/12

 

Chris Christie, who used to play Norm on the old sitcom Cheers (snark!), is a leading surrogate spokesman for the Romney campaign, so it’s kind of irksome to hear him heaping praise on the president, even in an emergency situation.  I don’t mean to make light of the storm (it’s not a hurricane anymore, even though people are still calling it one).  Storm Sandy is a nightmare scenario for everyone but Barack Obama, since it gives him a chance to “look presidential” issuing states of emergency, which was about as difficult a call as leaving a golf game so he could watch the SEALs storm the bin Laden compound on video.

Next, I expect Christie to say, “I’m not sure Mitt Romney would have had the guts to call this an emergency if he was president.”  Or maybe, “When I’m elected president in 2016, I’ll be one of those presidents that flies around in a helicopter, rubbernecking at all the storm damage so I can look presidential too!”

Does anybody really still believe that Christie wants Romney to win?  If you do, I have some former beachfront property in New Jersey to sell you.  Just ignore the skeletons the erosion exposed.

    I urge all Christians who have not taken the time to research Mitt Romney to do so. Anything that is of God should be able to stand in the Light of Truth. If you can’t vote for President Obama, then vote for Ron Paul, or write-in Ron Paul. God would never want us to choose “The Lesser of two evils.” Do not be deceived. No man is like unto God.
    Mitt Romney must NOT Be elected!

    • beachnan

      Romney all the way to the Whitehouse!!! Amen.

    • JohnnyTwoDog

      Man you must really be desperate (panicked stupid) if you think that will help Obama get elected.

    • HObama HObamanana

      You must be an Obot or otherwise Zombied individual. You do realize, I suppose, that, if anything, your video only makes Mitt Romney seem like a man ahead of his times? A man willing to embrace all of humanity as equals because that is how he was raised and taught.

  • HObama HObamanana

    I was watching Nanny Bloomberg lament that citizens of NYC were waking up and realizing that they didn’t know where they were going to get food and water. I don’t know about anyone else, but when I heard about this storm coming I went out and stocked up on drinking water and food that didn’t need heating. I also picked up some extra battery powered lights. What’s up with a Nanny State where people don’t think for their selves and plan for emergencies they know are heading their way?

  • akaPatience

    I have a feeling Sandy won’t be the windfall for Obama many Dems are hoping for. Already in its wake, we’re witnessing lots of chaos, much of which won’t be relieved for AT LEAST a few days yet. And then there’s the hardship millions are suffering. People who lost their homes and all of their earthly possessions aren’t going to recover from the storm overnight or any time very soon. And as the agony continues it’ll be accompanied by frustration and blame casting. We generally watch NBC Nightly News (which I hate but my Obot husband’s a fan) and I was struck last night by Obama’s very cold demeanor in the clip about his tour of the damage. Anyway, FWIW that’s my opinion. And as far as Christie goes, I’ve never been a big fan of his. While he seems to be a good governor, I’ve often found his blunt, shoot-from-the-hip style off-putting. I know others are charmed by it though.

    • http://twitter.com/beyondpartisan beyond partisan

      Already people on Staten Island is calling this disaster their “Katrina” and it’s only been two days.

      • stodghie

        yes i noticed that. i am not there and can’t see what is really happening but it don’t see it as their katrina.

  • drpete

    Maybe, just maybe, the President did a good job on this one and Christie was just calling it like he saw it.

    • TeakWoodKite

      Drpete, “maybe just maybe” Obama actually did his job. Maybe, just maybe he doesn’t want to loose NJ.

      • beachnan

        I agree Teak. For once, Obama did his job. The problem I see is that NJ would have gotten the help they need without the ass kissing, BECAUSE it is so close to the election and it is critical for Obama to look good and show leadership. Christie didn’t need to kiss his ass to get that help. Remember all those fires in Texas a few years back that decimated a lot of homes? Perry was asking for Obama’s help over and over and he never got it. Obama had to do this and this one time of showing leadership should not get him reelected. Just wish Christie hadn’t played into Obama’s and the Dems plans–NJ would have gotten the help anyway.

        • TeakWoodKite

          I think you are right. he didn’t need to yet Christie is a butt scrapper politician. There is growing frustration in NY and NJ and it’s all over the social media ….Christie is not immune.

          gas in Bergen County is hard to get. The stations are either out of gas or don’t have power to the pumps. There are two stations on 17 in Heights that are open, but my guess is they will run out of gas soon.

  • felizarte

    I hope to see the Mormon Tabernacle Choir at Mitt’s inauguration singing “Mine eyes have seen . . . ” and opposite them another choir singing “Swing Low, sweet chariot . . .”

    Hurry, Nov. 6 2012!

    • TeakWoodKite

      At least a White House performance.
      JZ can forget of ever stepping foot in the WH to “sing” about Bitches and Hoes.

  • http://twitter.com/beyondpartisan beyond partisan

    I think people are totally blowing what Christie said out of proportion. The left is blowing it up because they are desperate for Obama to win. And when I see this type of freaking out over it, it’s because you are *buying into* the media narrative that somehow this storm is going to help Obama pull it out at the last minute. It won’t.

    Obama is not going to win because of Hurricane Sandy. So lay off of Christie. He’s just trying to get things done in his state.

  • KenoshaMarge

    Wow, everybody is all for “bi-partisanship” until someone dares do it. Then they are suddenly the enemy of all mankind.

    Is Chris Christie mostly about Chris Christie and New Jersey? Of course he is. First and foremost politicians are all about themselves. If you think otherwise I’ve got some former beachfront property in New Jersey” to sell you.

    Demonizing Christie because he is trying to get the best/most he can from the POTUS for his state doesn’t seem right or fair to me. But bash away. I guess only the Clintons get excused for kissing Obama ass.

    • Earl Stick

      I guess you’ll like Maureen Dowd’s piece praising Christie for his free help with Obama’s campaign.

      http://www.nytimes.com/2012/10/31/opinion/dowd-the-i-of-the-storm.html?ref=maureendowd

      • http://twitter.com/beyondpartisan beyond partisan

        Seriously…who CARES what Maureen Dowd says? This is NOT going to help Obama’s campaign. They are just desperate for anything, that’s all.

        • JohnnyTwoDog

          “just desperate for anything”
          so true
          And Christie played it like a virtuoso.

      • HObama HObamanana

        Earl, if you knew anything about Marge you would know that she despises Maureen Dowd. Consider me and several others here of the same opinion. Just because Dowd says something doesn’t mean it has any credibility. It’s like anything else she writes, it’s dowdy.

        But she will use any excuse to demean those not of her foolish mindset and if she thinks for a moment that she can find some way to divide good people like almost everyone that visits here she will take full advantage of it. Some are falling for the trap she set.

      • KenoshaMarge

        I guess you’d be wrong if you thought for a minute I’d likeanything written by the Dowdy pinhead.

  • MJP

    Check out the pjmedia article on Benghazi and Obama. Right on portrait of him.

    http://pjmedia.com/michaelwalsh/2012/10/31/the-false-dmitri/

    It’s almost impossible to overstate the importance of what Obama’s handling of what is sure to go down as one of the most disgraceful episodes in American political and military history tells us about him, his administration, the ethos of the modern Democratic Party, and the state of our nation. The short answer: nothing good.

  • Bill O’Reilly

    Typical conservative bullshit comment. For the last couple of years NQ and its followers have had plenty of good things to say about Christie. Now that he honestly says the Fed’s and the President’s reaction to this hurricane has so far been good you shit all over Christie. That says a lot about the character of NQ and Steve in KC. You all live in a bubble of Obama hate.

    • HARP2

      We hate Bill O`Reilly too.

      • BronwynsHarbor

        Ditto! To the dittoheads!

    • HObama HObamanana

      Look, you dumb shit Obot, we are fairly evenly split on how we feel about this. So fuck off! One thing you can be absolutely certain of is that we are united behind Romney and have his back from contemptuous pieces of donkey dung like you and your immoral, traitorous political party.

      Did I tell you to fuck off yet? Yep, I suppose I did. It bears repeating though. Fuck off Obot!

      • Midlife Mama

        Bravo!

      • Bill O’Reilly

        LMFAO

    absolutely. and what exactly has the president done about the storm? millions still without power; homes; food; gasoline running low?

        but but i though obama phones ran forever…and and obama was inside the phone and when you rubbed the phone Obama came out and granted three wished.

  • shelldoll2

    What I find interesting is Obama’s new speechifying about how much he loves America, the troops, he’s suddenly so patriotic etc.

    Sorry Barack. We Vets and troops ain’t buying it. Not only that there’s enough of us to defeat you.

    The media may have forgotten Benghanzi We The People have not. Christie better remember that.

    • HARP2

      Amen to that sister.

    • Retired_from_SPOnaj

      Actually, the media hasn’t forgotten Benghazi. If Obama loses the election, they will be on him relentlessly, it’s just too good a story, and there will be no point in sitting on the story any longer just to shield him. He will be hounded until he leaves office, and after that, as well. Somewhat like Jimmy Carter, only the press is much more viscious these days. Even guys like Matthews, who need a “cause,” will be fighting to see who can push the knife in deeper and twist it harder.

  • http://wiskeytangofoxtrotoscar.blogspot.com/ James Ala

    Somehow I knew people’s head would explode when The Blob said nice things about Barry. Kids, Christie has got a state to run, bottom line.

    As for running the federal response to a major weather event and disaster, I remember a President in 2006 totally screwing that up; so not as easy as it would appear.

    • http://twitter.com/TheAngieNC2 Angie

      Well, you don’t remember too well, because Katrina was in August 29, 2005, not 2006 — I know, because I was there. And Bush, via FEMA, offered help but was turned DOWN by Governor Blanco (D) & the idiot NOLA Mayor, Ray Nagin (who, btw, is right now under investigation for getting kickbacks on FEMA contracts). Yes, I know the MSM put *all* the blame on Bush, and while I’m not a Bush fan, never voted for him, and there is plenty of blame to go around on both the state & federal level re: Katrina, the TRUTH is that the state & local authorities are supposed to be the first responders and it is they who dropped the ball majorly FIRST, not Bush & the Feds.That’s just the FACT.

      Oh, PS: so far there isn’t one FEMA boot on the ground re: Sandy — that is all state & local responders that you are seeing (as it should be). All Obama has done is signed authorizations to free up FEMA money (which, btw, is taxpayer money, not *Obama’s* money) and talked about “ordering” FEMA to “cut through red tape” (no mention as to why he hasn’t made an effort to streamline & make the entire process more efficient in the first place so he doesn’t have to “order” a red tape “exception.”). And, FTR, Bush authorized $141 billion in FEMA funds total to rebuild NOLA & the Gulf Coast after Katrina (which is *more* than was given to NYC after 9/11). Further, contrary to the lies the Dems (including Obama) tell, the Stafford Act *was* waived for most of that (oh, and Obama is one of the 14 Senators who voted AGAINST waiving the Stafford Act for the last disbursement in 2007).
      PPS — the earliest responders with aid to NOLA after Katrina were the Mormons, the Baptists, the Salvation Army and WalMart. The Red Cross didn’t come until the end of September 2005.

      • HObama HObamanana

        … (no mention as to why he hasn’t made an effort to streamline & make the entire process more efficient in the first place so he doesn’t have to “order” a red tape “exception.”).

        To the point. Perfect!

    Well you could look at it this way; Christy has taken O off the campaign trail for a whole day. Every moment O spends looking prez with Christy he is not out there beating up RR. Not sure Dems and undecideds are going to be especially thrilled at the optics. Think Bloomberg”s stay away message was a little bit about being dissed?—after all O comes to NY frequently to pick up big $$$ and where does the prez decide to show his precious self first—to New Jersey gov who is a Romney surrogate.

  • Popsmoke

    I am sure Christie does not give a shit about people like you7 either there Steve boy. When you become Governor and your state is hit by a major strom you then can call the shots as you see them. Until then thank God you rigvht now are not in Christies shoes…ones I doubt you could fill….

  • POdVet

    Such brain damaged vitriol. I can only assume some have become so anti-Obama that they are willing to see people suffer and die rather than have Christie ask Obama for help. His state just got screwed and you would have him play politics rather than take care of his people in need? You are becoming just as bad as the KOS crowd! Maybe you should take a good long look in a mirror and see if you recognize a good person in there any more. If there is, they are hiding pretty f’ing deep!

  • JohnnyTwoDog

    There is only one person on the planet that does not think Christie is playing Obama – Obama.

    NJ is getting ALL the attention and an immediate disaster declaration from Obama, (as they should).

    VA, PA and parts of OH were hit very hard by Sandy, as were Delaware and the NC coast. They might not like being ignored.

    • stodghie

      the same thing happened during katrina. mississippi and alabama coasts were devastated however the media never addressed. they were too busy falling all over themselves in new orleans. after katrina we had hurricane rita here in texas which did huge damage. i have to say we didn’t get the same treatment either.

  • tigaroo6

    Who would have expected Chris Christie to be the October Surprise!

  • Woody

    How come it’s taken four years for Obeauzeau to “look presidential”? Brain surgeons perfect their craft in a fraction of the time. Slow learner?

  • Cold&Tired In PA

    Not sure if it was nationally shown but .. I think it was Monday that Christie got into an assault match with the Mayor of Atlantic City (D) about evacuating Atlantic City. Christie was pissed because the Mayor – according to Christie – defied his orders to evacuate Atlantic City and now because of this, people will be in harms way and rescue people will be put in danger trying to rescue them. Christie said that he would not send anyone into Atlantic City to help anyone until Tuesday morning after sunrise. The Mayor of Atlantic City was then asking for a one/one fight with Christie. Such unnecessary battles when all this storm crap is going on. Maybe Christie figures he will reach out to Obama and spread some honey to get the $$ they will need and end the battle with the Mayor? Who knows.

    All I know is that it’s Wed and we still do not have power but thankfully have a generator. It’s getting cold here now, the sound of generators and chain saws.. I’m in the burbs of Philly. This storm was really bad! My heart breaks for all the folks in NJ – many in blue collar areas – who have lost everything! The women who are just exhausted, scared and homeless now speaking to Christie brings tears to my eyes.

  • Hokma

    Nearly 90% of homes on Long Island lost power and nearly as many in NJ lost power and it will be for days and possibly as much as 2 weeks.

    Christie lost his childhood theme park – who gives a crap?

    His sucking up to Obama is about him just like his keynote speech at the convention. You did not see Bloomberg or Cuomo sucking up to Obama at all. They were just doing their job.

    Clinton is campaigning as if Obama has done a stupendous job? I have not seen anything he has done that is out of the ordinary at best.

    • HObama HObamanana

      Christie’s speech at the Convention was approved by the Romney campaign. If they had any issues with his speech they would have done something about it. The whole purpose of Christie not being Christie at the Convention was planned.

    • jrterrier

      Glad to see you back, Hokma. How are people coping in LI? Reports that NY gas stations are out of gas or not working because still without electricity. Can’t imagine how NYC gets back on its feet without the subway.

    Obama is vanquished. It costs nothing to be kind at this point, and in fact it helps all of us in the long run. Think, people!

    • TeakWoodKite

      I think the more Obama is photogenically synonymous with a EPIC natural disaster the better. Christie is a donut. Mostly round and nothin in the middle, What is the downside for Christie ? I say the die is cast and aside from voter scams the vote is done. The independents are not for Obama and Romney would make stronger gains in NJ on any other day.
      If you asked a person in NYC, they are more concerned about the rats in the streets than Obama at the moment.

      I once had a guy tell me that he put his 4 wheeler and his lawn mower in the path of an Angels Camp forest fire… just so he could get a new one. ….Christie doesn’t want to camp on this worksite…them’s mob dollars .

  • Deapster

    I think we all remember Christie’s convention speech where he forgot to acknowledge the party’s nominee while he was too busy telling the world about himself.

    This will play only in the uber-liberal NorthEast who is already in the tank with Obama anyway. The rest of the country recognizes if you choose to live on the East coast, this is what happens and this is why you carry insurance. And among those who did die in this storm, some attempted to run it out, so tragedy and hubris do have an uneasy alliance in this situation.

    Fate as they say is what gets thrown at you. Destiny is what you choose to do about it.

  • Sally Vaci

    This is flat out disinformation, or a manic outburst that should be treated as a medical crisis.

    Chris Christie knows exactly what he is doing and he’s behaving like the smart, gutsy, commander-in-state that he is. Watch and learn, grasshoppers.

    By the way, looks to me like Chris has lost some weight and I’m happy to see that. XOXO Chris & Mary Pat.

  • HObama HObamanana

    I think you are taking Christie’s appropriate words way out of context and reading way to much meaning into them. I hate Obama as much as anyone else here but I’m not going to raise hell with Christie just because he said a few nice words about him. Are you forgetting all the nasty things he said about Obama not even a week earlier? And the week before that. And the week before that? Etc.???

    Partisanship rots brains. That’s fine if your a zombie or an Obot, but for the intelligent folk here it is quite harmful. Christie is not a RHINO, he is a Governor whose state was just ravaged by a horrible storm. Would you really rather have him lay into Obama at a time like this and demonstrate to the rest of the country that Republicans have no class during a time of crisis? Would that make Romney look better, in your opinion?

    And blaming Christie for the way the press spins a story? Give. Me. A. Break!

      HoHo, I respect your opinions, but I can’t find any excuse for Christie sucking up to Obama the way he did during the final week before a presidential election. A simple thanks would have sufficed. The timing, this close to the election, well, he just should have known what the liberal press would do with his remarks. If not, he’s not thinking like a leader.

      • HObama HObamanana

        I respect your opinion too Earl. I don’t necessarily agree with what Christie said and to whom. I do, however, understand why he said it and think that giving him a bunch of flack for being a Governor before being a Romney surrogate is a little over the top, considering the crisis in NJ.

    • mgm

      Agree, Hobama. People can choose what they want to believe, but I think Christie really cares about his state. On TV last night he looked exhausted, stressed, and just plain worn down. He may not even be thinking quite straight. And he may be smart enough to know that Obama needs fulsome praise to produce the desired results. I can’t blame a governor for putting the anguished people of his state first.

          I think Christie is doing what he must as a Gov in a “blue” state…there is no downside for him in it. regardless of BO plays politics with it. His state just the value of all that beach front property get hammered.
          I don’t have to like it, but I dam sure understand the reason a Governor will curry favor when his state just got ripped up.

    • Popsmoke

      Was it you walking down the street yesterday with a mattress strapped to your back asking for volunteers? The moral of this story is….one unjustified insult deserves another…

  • randi

    Looks so different from my perspective. I see a Republican praising a Democrat and I am reminded that America works best when we work together. If the R is willing to praise a D – maybe R’s aren’t the hold-up on the Hill? And watching Barack drop everything to work on this crisis just reminds me that he could have been working this way all along. Sigh. Guess the economy and unemployed aren’t enough of a crisis to make him hustle. :(

    • foxyladi14

      agree

    • DDDDSSSS

      I hope Christie uses the opportunity later this week to point out that when Republicans and Democrats work together things can get done… Just as Romney accomplished in Massachusetts and just as Romney would do as President. And, also that it’s been a refreshing few days to not be attacked just for being a Republican and / or supporting a different candidate as Christie still does. He can go on to say that had Obama been this responsive and non-partisan over the past four years the country would be in a far different place today.

      Christie needs to address the mischaracterization of his comments, put it to rest that he absolutely still supports Romney as the better candidate, and that he wants to get back to cleaning up New Jersey with Obama over the two months Obama still has left in office.

      BTW, I’ve heard nothing from the media about how inappropriate it was for Chuck Schumer to take a swipe at Republicans during his press conference with Bloomberg earlier this week.

    • HObama HObamanana

      I find it so strange that a reasonable comment like yours would receive two dislikes. I received a few myself because I am unwilling to toe the line on Christie hate. If, heaven forbid, Romney doesn’t win next week I suspect some of these same people will be blaming Christie.

        i don’t hate christy. in fact i like his combative style. so please let’s not make assumptions. the fact is christy may well have made a bad choice today in allowing obama the amount of photo ops he did. i feel christy has had no sleep and is facing a diastster of great proportions. i saw on another blog comments from people in other states about how they had great troubles too and obama could not be bothered with them. we had wild fires in texas last year and begged for help which was not given. tough shit texas! the gulf coast begged for help and old bummer didn’t show up for 50 DAYS. we know who and what obama is . we have concerns when christy could have hosted obama and been a gracious host without going across the line. let’s use common sense here and look at the reality that is here. hell msnbc tried to fry romney for simply donating to the darn tragedy. i might add that we in texas have had great tragedy for the last few years with hurricanes. we have been there and done that. the whole gulf coast has.

          Wow, incredible bitterness and hate. “Been there done that” is the extent of your compassion? I sure hope you do not fancy yourself as religious in any way. I knew this site could get pretty negative but it has grown into simple predictable hate spitting.

          • stodghie

            alan look in a mirror when you make those comments.

            • Alan Davis

              Hey they are the 47% and I agree with this site and Romney that they will not take responsibility for themselves. No name calling there. I also want to cut out welfare for farmers and oil producers and poor people. However I DO think the federal government should support states in disaster relief and evidently you don’t. Or is it that you did not get as much as you wanted with your hands out for gov money in some other disaster? You want NJ and NYC to get less and TX to get more. Or maybe you are just full of bile because you did not get more.

                alan you are an idiot with your mindless rants and charges. take a hike!

                • Alan Davis

                  Yeah, name calling and whining – that is what you do.

                  • stodghie

                    LOL alan you are funny. i will leave this conversation as there is no point or intelligenct comments from you.

    • stodghie

      it is one thing to reward a democrat actually working iwth you for something besides photo ops. it is something else to let obama use you when the most critical election of our time is happening. let’s be frank here christy was all about christy here . frankly the speech he gave at the convention was all about him too. i have been through hurricanes for decades. the thing is get busy and get the dang job done. i am not certain having obama there served nj in anyway. christy could have had obama there and been gracious. slobering for the cameras was not a requirement.

      Very well said.. Kudos

    Christie is only concerned about Christie.

    • win43

      Pretty much.

      He wants to run in 2016. I don’t think he’s rooting against Romney, but I don’t think he’d be too bothered if he lost, either.

    One word,
    RHINO!!!!

    When I think about Christie’s speech at the convention and now this, it makes me think possibly he is not as much for Romey as we think. After all Romey didn’t pick him to be his VP. Christie’s ego is almost a big as OBama’s. He probably felt shunned and now it’s his turn for payback. If this could be true it’s good we found out now what kind of person Christie could turn out to be. Just a thought. I am hoping I am wrong because I have been a Christie supporter from the beginning. Romey and Ryan all the way !!!!!

      Every one spread this around Please!!!!! Watch that the machine does not change your vote,

      Three States now reporting changing votes

      • shelldoll2

        I watched this happen on the machine I voted on! It is real people!

      • jrterrier

        What I’m concerned about everytime I read these stories that a machine showed the vote for Obama 3 times before they were able to record the Romney vote correctly is whether the machine is counting the 3-wrong votes for Obama as Obama votes before it counts the 4th vote for Romney.

          Excellent question!
