Author Brad Thor: Obama Campaign Planning to Proclaim Early Victory to Demoralize Romney Supporters
The Blaze ^ | 11/5/2012 | Jason Howerton

Posted on 11/05/2012 3:03:23 PM PST by notaliberal

New York Times best-selling author Brad Thor, based in Chicago, tells TheBlaze that the Obama campaign may be planning to preemptively announce victory in the presidential election based on early voting numbers in an attempt to “demoralize Mitt Romney supporters.”

Citing a “very solid source” in Chicago, Thor says the Obama campaign is looking to make it appear to voters that they have “this thing sewed up and are less than 24 hours to victory,” according to his source.

Meanwhile, team Obama will also urge voters to get out and vote so they can say they were part of the important 2012 election that resulted in a second term for Obama.

While Thor can’t reveal his source, he told TheBlaze multiple times that the source is very reliable

Sounds like a dumb decision to me. Anti-Obama voters are going to vote no matter what. To me it just deters the Obama voters from voting because they’ll think they have it in the bag.

I remember the exit polls that showed Bush was going to get destroyed by Kerry, but they were wrong and didn’t impact voting.

I like Brad Thor’s novels. He is one of the good guys.

This is just another part of the propaganda offensive by the 0bama regime. No matter how discouraged you may be, GET OUT AND VOTE!

Isn’t that what supposedly happened to cause the ‘hangin chad’ incident?

Someone called Fl early, and it affected the ‘Western States’.

You know the LIBS, worked once it will work again.

As soon as it looks like they can call New Hampshire for Obama.
If Romney is close enough there , or even ahead, this ploy won’t happen.

Though the media will give it their all if remotely possible...

Several TV stations including MSNBC have already “accidentally” posted odumbo as the winner on their screens.
The dims and the disgusting media are going to use any slime trick they can dream up to influence the brain dead public.
The media in this country is the number one enemy of the people.

Fascinating- but not surprising.

I remember 2004 BEFORE polls were closed and the exit polls showed Bush losing to Kerry. We were in FULL MELTDOWN. The one guy that kept strong and sane was- of all people- Hannity. He would not give in to the hype and I have always remembered that. Most of the time I can’t deal with him- but he kept me and a lot of people grounded that day.

With O and his minions we are dealing with a degree of immorality that would make Bill Clinton blush. There is no guilt or shame or sense of right and wrong in these people.

God, bless America. Amen.

“Someone called Fl early, and it affected the ‘Western States’.

*********************************************************************
Some of the TV networks called Florida for Gore early (before the western Florida panhandle’s polls closed—they are on central time and the rest of Florida is on Eastern time. The panhandle is one of the more conservative parts of the states and a number of panhandle voters who were still waiting in line to vote went home.

It ALMOST worked.

If he tries to claim victory while people are still voting in the east coast states, he will just look desperate. Once the east coast time zone is done voting, there will be nothing he can do to change the outcome. Ohio, Michigan, VA, FL, NC and NH will be in the can. Panhandle FL people won’t fall for it this time. Nice try, though.

It did worse then that, it affected the vote in Florida.
They called with the polls STILL OPEN in the panhandle and Bush lost a lot of votes as people in line went home thinking it was over.....

There was no incumbent in that race. This ain’t 2000. I would walk through a minefield guarded by black panthers and guard dogs, crawl through barbed wire and tear gas to cast my vote.

So then that will be another charge at the impeachment hearing: election manipulation. And when they lose handily how will they justify calling it early.

These people are the lowest scum on the face of the earth.
Let them go ahead and play their game; it’ll backfire. Conservatives/Republicans already know they lie every time they open their mouths; it won’t stop them from voting. But their lazy base just might think, aw hell, Barack got it already, so I don’t even have to go mess with votin.’

Every stupid tactic they’re tried has come back to bite them.

My only concern in this situation would be the media.

Would they finally admit that he’s psychotic or would they simply choose to declare him the winner.

I registered to vote in ‘94 because Rush Limbaugh talked about Clinton and the lack of character, his background, etc.. My first vote was against Clinton. I was able to calm my nerves in the 2000 election by reading all the threads on FR and learning about the chads, the courts, and what things meant. I would have gone bonkers otherwise!!! When Obama won the 08 election I had a migraine for a week and I have dedicated 4 years of educating people who he is. This election I have some Irish Creme to buffer any shocks but I do believe we will win this one. I am glad FR is back up before the election!!! Thanks so much John Robinson!

They're going to "declare victory" at the same time as they tell their voters "don't panic over early exit polls"? Doesn't make any sense -- but then again, they're Democrats.

OMG. Did I ever. I don't even know where to begin. That episode was like one long stomach-punch. I'm SO sorry to see T-Dog go! I even (gulp) felt bad about Lori, LOL.

But Rick....wow, Andrew Lincoln killed that last scene.

Brilliant! As mentioned once, the anti-O vote is voting no matter what, the loves Mitt vote is voting no matter what, but the Obamanation may decide to stay home if the percieve it is over. So to me it means O knows he is losing and is willing to toss this hail mary. It may not work but it doesnt hurt to try unless you are running for Congress.

Bottom line this strategy may well help give the pubbies the senate.

Maybe we should help the dems buy into this.

Definitely the most brutal episode I’ve seen.

Carl did something I doubt Rick could have done.

Carl’s a different boy than he was last season, for sure.

In the preview for next week’s episode, Glen had dug a grave, and he told those two prisoners he needed two more. Carol or the baby?

Graves for T-Dog and the prisoner that tried to kill Rick maybe.

I think the two other prisoners are going to join the group but they’ll need to steer clear of Rick for a while yet. After all, it was the big black guy that saved Rick’s life.

I was reading posts on a board that discusses the show, and someone referred to the little guy as “General Custer.”

Now we get to look forward to Merle reuniting with Daryl...and with the new Rick, LOL.
